Kyriake Kostopoulou (Gk. Κυριακή Κωστόπουλου), born on July 15, 2008 on Heraklion, is the daughter of Angelos Kostopoulos, as well as the older of the two children of the Kostopouloi. Kyriake, like the various other females such as Yuri and Eun Jin, is also a tech nerd: not only that, Kyriake has the Savant syndrome, caring only for production and maintenance of machineries and other useful products. As such, Kyriake offers some technical advices to her father when it comes to shipbuilding. However, unlike Yuri and Eun Jin, Kyriake is not scouted by the Ecclesiarchy, although Kyriake was aware of the Papal State given its zeal in technological pursuits.
Despite her skills, Kyriake is considered unfit to be the heiress to the Kostopoulos Shipbuilding Firm as Athanasia deems it, given Kyriake's complete indifference to business world, as well as her lack of penchant for risk-taking. Even more disappointing to both Angelos and Athanasia was Kyriake's indifference to marriage or the opposite gender: although this trait would have been treasured by the likes of Kallisto, such was not the case with the Kostopouloi. In fact, this was considered a curse given Kyriake's good looks that rivals and perhaps even surpass that of Athanasia. Having said so, Kyriake is considered less of an asset given that business-inspired marriage is out of the question. Given the lack of familial support compared to Yuri, Kyriake falls behind Yuri when it comes to the said tinkering abilities.
Kyriake is an experienced inventor, as well as a hardcore collector: Kyriake has 7 points in Inventing, 5 points in Handiness, and 2 points in Nectar Making (A skill gained from her interest in nectar making machine). Kyriake possesses a Plutonium Bar, a Palladium Bar, and a Brilliant cut opal in the inventory.
The Migration Edit
Like most of the Fanon Characters, this story will not be reflected on in the start of a game on the said neighborhood (which is to be updated)
Having arrived at their custom-built abode, named the Megaron Ponou Hesychias, Kyriake immediately claimed for herself the stoa built next to the main body, and also set aside a plot of land next to the stoa. Kyriake then engaged in a covenant with Athanasia, agreeing to earn the keep and to assist in making the family name famous in exchange for autonomy and control of the land. However, Athanasia was always anxious about Kyriake upholding the latter part of Kyriake's side of the deal, and egged Kyriake to join the Filming career, even though Kyriake had absolutely no interest in filming, and much less in personal fame to be gained. Given Kyriake's fine appearance, Athanasia's recommendation didn't go wrong in her eyes, as Kyriake was given quick promotions and other salary boosts rather quickly.
However, the relatively speedy progression of the career which Kyriake didn't like paled in comparison to pursuit of something that Kyriake did care about: she always had an interest in the nectar culture of the Papal State, going far as to pick up some foreknowledge about the makings of said products in addition to Kyriake's main pursuit of engineering. Given that, it was only a matter of time before Kyriake took great initiatives to establish her own fruit source. Sure, the public sources such as the Basilikos Paradeisos Pankarpion and Agora Nektaros's fruits were rarely exploited, but Kyriake was adamant about having her own fruits for easy access at home. Of course, Kyriake had no gardening skill to begin with, but fortunately, Kyriake was knowledgeable about the Trees of Prosperities that the Papal State had installed throughout the capital. Capitalizing on such tools, Kyriake sped without hesistation, raising her gardening level almost to level 7 in just 2 days, while taking on more common fruits from the normal quality stock at the new nectary, the Proschema Euboias.
Given Kyriake's speed and initiative, Kallisto was immediately drawn to the newcomer. In fact, it was Kallisto that helped further the jump start on the Gardening skill that Kyriake had desired in her quest to produce her own nectar. Kyriake's love of creation had definitely struck a note in Kallisto, and immediately did Kallisto pledged to help out Kyriake exercize her creative abilities. On top, Kallisto recommended the Science career, pointing Kyriake towards her associate Hypatia who was the first in breeding plants at large scale. Although Kyriake has not abandoned the film career, Kyriake was definitely happy about meeting someone who adored her initiative as well as her narrow but extensive interest in production.
Kyriake however was a target of the weak criminal network in Hekatonschoinos, which was largely reduced to petty robbing thanks to the superior public safety of the Papal State. The lack of security at the stoa portion of the Kostopouloi residence was fatal: a thief came in and stole Kyriake's tiberium piece, getting away despite the intervention of the police. Kallisto was indignant about this, and chastised the lower levels of the law enforcement ranks, and then proceeded to resolve this herself, inflicting spontaneous combustion and bee swarms on the said robber, inflicting him much misery. Kallisto would then procure another tiberium piece and fork that over to Kyriake, not knowing that the ore is defective. Kyriake then proceeded immediately to refine the ore, acquiring an extremely rare variant of tiberium which leads to instant riches for the Kostopouloi family. Having obtained a huge sum of money, Athanasia's attitude towards Kyriake becomes much more enthusiastic to the point where Athanasia would take up Nectar Making alongside her brother's daughter believing that to be Kyriake's method to sudden income.
- Kyriake completes the Water sign tech nerd trine, alongside the Pisces Yuri Kang and Scorpio Eun Jin. And as are the other tech nerds, Kyriake is also flat chested.
- The name Kyriake literally means "of the Lord" (root κύριος, meaning lord), and in the Modern Greek sense it also means Sunday. This is ironic as Kyriake is born on Tuesday according to the Day of the Week website. However, birth on Tuesday is somewhat justified: in the Modern Greek sense, Tuesday is considered inauspicious, quite fitting given Athanasia's attitude towards Kyriake's view of things. In fact, all the Kostopouloi have names with some religious connotations: Angelos an obvious reference to the Angel, Athanasia meaning immortal, and Theophylaktos meaning guarded by god.
- Kyriake does not have Theophylaktos registered as a sibling and Athanasia is not her mother, given that Angelos and Athanasia are not married, and had kids separately. Rather, Athansia is registered as an aunt, and Theophylaktos considered a cousin.
- Kyriake is the only member of the Kostopouloi to not repeat month and day number (7/15, compared to 9/9 for Angelos, 10/10 for Theophylaktos, and 12/12 for Athanasia). This change was made to make it more consistent with the time flow.
