Love of the Arts
The Rainard Children loved the arts, whether it was music, literature, painting, singing, dance, or poetry. Both Anna and Taisyia have degrees in the fine arts, with Anna specializing in painting while Taisyia specialized in dancing. All four of the Rainard Sisters (Anna, Natalka, Cecilia, and Taisyia) won first place in the National Young Ballet Dance Recitals while in high school.
The Rainard Sisters took jobs as art models while in high school. Anna would often teach her siblings how to draw and paint, and would do nude portraits of the Rainard Sisters together.
Erik took up sculpture and poetry as hobbies.
In his spare time, Samuil either sketches or plays the flute, while Cecilia in her spare time plays the piano.
The Rainard Children were known for being active and athletic, and participated in several sporting teams while in school. Erik plans on taking part in the 2011 Summer Olympics.
Hope of Reunion
After the Vulshainian Civil War, the Rainard Children were separated. Samuil and Cecilia hope and pray for the day that the Rainard Children will finally be reunited.
In early 2011, Taisyia and Erik were reunited. Only Anna and Natalka remain.
Fur Patterns: Walking Works of Art
Upon the birth of each one of the Rainard Children, many have commented that the kits are like breathing works of art, because of their unique and colorful fur patterns. Blue, red, black, silver, white, and reddish-brown are shared between all six of them. A result of Vulshian's culture, all six of them take extremely excellent care of their fur, especially their tails.
As the members of the Rainard Royal Family, the Rainard Children are each Princes and Princesses of Vulshain, with the exception of Samuil as he is now King of Vulshain. Following the Peerage System of Vulshainian Nobility, each member of the Rainard Children is granted a title or titles. However, becaue their mother Vikki, had wanted them to live normal lives, free of the pressures of having royal blood, the Rainard Children have only been granted one.
In descending order of hierarchy, their titles are:
- Anna is the Duchess of Velra.
- Natalka and Cecilia are the Marchionesses of Velra. Because both are fraternal twins, they both are given the title of Marchioness of Velra.
- Taisyia is the Countess of Velra.
- Samuil is the Viscount of Velra.
- Erik is the Baron of Velra.
