Xulu is a rather pretty girl for her race. Normally alien females are born with deformed and featureless faces, and a light blue skin tone, but as Xulu is of human descent she has most human characteristics like the skin tone, eye color and hair.
Xulu stands at about 5'3", so she is rather small for her age, this can be considered rather cute, but to her it's plain annoying. She weighs somewhere around 30-50 lbs, which is a very common weight for alien females her age. A human would easily call this very, very strange. (Let's hope no one offers to carry her..)
Her hair is a very dark blue, commonly mistaken for black, but if you look closely the strands are an unnatural blue. Her hair is perfectly straight, glossy, and soft, and sweeps all the way down to her ankles.
Xulu's eyes change color often. When she is in a good mood her iris' are a very light grey, and sometimes they even go to extremes and go a complete white. (The pupil disappears too, so all a human would see would be the eye whites.) When in a bad mood her eyes go a darker shade of grey, and when completely angry at something her eyes go a pitch black, so that now it seems as if she has two holes instead of iris'.
Her facial features are round, her face shape is rather pointed and thin. Her nose is quite small and round. Her lips are very full, and have a natural glossy pink tint to them. She also has a permanent light pink tint on her cheeks.
Xulu's skin is 100% flawless. There is not a single spot, blemish, freckle, or discoloring in her skin. It looks as if someone spray painted her a golden brown color. Her skin color doesn't change when she's cold or warm, and she is much more tanned and olive colored than humans. Her body also doesn't grow any hair, in any part of her body, and her skin is completely smooth.
Xulu has permanent clothing. This is something normal for the alien race too. The clothing she wears is traditional and responds to the tribe she is from. It is impossible for her to take the clothing off as it is permanently glued onto her skin. The clothing at touch feels like very strong and tough metal, yet upon movement it flows, twists and bends exactly as if it was the softest material in the world. It's surface is very cold to the human touch, but Xulu's skin it is very warm and it is the thing that generates her body heat. It helps Xulu give off a heat aura that can be used almost like a radiator and heat up others. She can also increase her body heat so that it is much above boiling point to humans and upon touch would instantly burn through skin, flesh and bone.
Her wings and claws are retractable. She doesn't have to use them, and her wings are almost completely useless. They cannot lift her more than 50ft in the air, although they help her to jump a lot higher than others. Her claws are used for self defence only, and have no other purposes. Once again, she rarely uses them.
She is also very well developed for her age. She has round breasts that humans would accuse of being 'fake' and her hips are rather defined. She supports a detailed v-line, and her stomach is flat, yet well toned. She has an even tan in all parts of her body.
Personality; Xulu's personality can have a quite extreme range, although she has many stable points that can be seen all of the time. First of all, Xulu is a small ball of fury. She can be innocent and gentle, but when annoyed she could kill you. She doesn't like it when people disagree with her, and will fight till the end until the other person gives in. Secondly, if you treat her right, she will do the same. She believes that if you treat people correctly, and how you would like to be treated, you will receive the same in return. Thirdly, Xulu is the type that will put others before herself. If someone is in need, and she is there, she will help them to the best of her ability. Even if they have wronged her in the past.
Even though Xulu can be very violent and aggressive, she does have a soft side to her. She can be affectionate, kind, and caring to people, and nothing makes her feel better than an occasional hug.
Details; Xulu's IQ levels are a lot higher than humans (after all she has lived longer than 6 of the oldest humans in the world put together.) She can do extreme sums like 65328985 x 542852854 in her head within maximum of a minute. She also has a photographic memory, and her memory is so good that she remembers all of the 689 years she has been alive.
Although she has many great qualities, she has to hide nearly every single one of them on her mission. If humans found out about her special abilities they would most certainly do tests and weird experiments on her, and we certainly don't want that.
There is some negatives to her though. Because she is used to her planet which is about 3,000 times more developed and has technology that humans do not even dream of, she had no knowledge of the human world. The simplest things like opening doors, using cutlery, and even drinking is a trouble to her.
Before arriving at planet Earth, Xulu was given training that taught her how to speak the human language, read and write in American-English, and what things NOT to do on her visit.
Main Mission; Xulu's main mission was to go to planet Earth, befriend a chosen individual who was linked with the 'Alien Case' and use them to see how much the humans knew about the alien race. It's very simple really. Except, she has 365 days, and in that time a whole lot of things could go wrong. For example she could accidentally hit her head and forget where she is, maybe forget that humans don't see wings day to day, unexpectedly fall in love with a human boy, or she could let something taboo slip. Nah, none of those things could ever possibly happen.
