Kylie always makes sure she looks nice, and won't leave the house unless she does. She even has an issue leaving the house to get medicine when she's feeling sick and doesn't want to leave the house looking terrible. She's not exceptionally tall, but in her job, comfort always comes first, so she'll usually wear flat shoes. On the few occasions where she does go out, she'll pull out the highest heels she has.
For a while, growing up, Kylie was extremely self-concious of her hair. It didn't help that a few kids would pick on her and spread rumors that she never learned how to brush her hair. Kids would also pull at it a lot, asking her how she got her hair like that. She used to get her mom up really early to braid her hair, or straighten it or make it look like the other kids' hair. When she turned thirteen, she became friends with another girl who had just moved to town who had the same sort of hair as her. Her friend was really great at doing different hairstyles and so the two of them would experiment with their natural hair. Since then, Kylie has become really proud of her hair and considers it an identifying part of herself.
Kylie is very organised and always likes to have everything in a certain place. She's also the kind of person who will start to worry if she's not half an hour early for everything. Understandably, growing up in such a big household with kids who were a lot younger than her regularly drove her crazy, because they were messy and it was always impossible to get them ready to go out anywhere. Sometimes she can get annoying with just how pedantic and highly-strung she is about organisation.
To other people, she's such a nice person who will always greet people she sees, and she's known to just start up conversations with people making small-talk with them. If she has a nice comment to say to someone, she won't hesitate to say it. She's not so quick with the negative comments though, because she'll usually go over the thought in her head for ages and try to think over all the reasons that a person might be doing that before eventually just stopping herself.
A few people, however, have the ability to just really get under her skin and irritate her. On a few occasions, she has lost her temper and raised her voice, but she always tries her best to just grin and bear it and vent her frustrations later, but sometimes she will just snap and be unable to stop herself from speaking her mind. She's also very defensive of her family, and especially her mother and she will never let anyone speak negatively about them.
Kylie was born in 1992 to a seventeen year old mother who was still living with her parents at the time. Within Kylie's first three years of life, she spent almost all of her time with her grandparents while her mom was out working to support her. When she was five, she started school, and she would start to overhear arguments between her mother and her grandparents. She wasn't exactly sure what it was about, but she knew it had something to do with her new boyfriend and marriage. She just thought it meant that they were getting married, and the thought of having a dad excited her for some reason.
She would later find out that her mom's boyfriend, Will, was actually married to another lady, and that he had a kid of his own. They were divorced soon after his wife found out about the affair, and Vanessa soon found out she was pregnant again, so she and Will decided to rent a house for their kids, even though Will didn't have custody of his first son. Vanessa gave birth to a baby boy, and Kylie was more than excited to have another sibling who would actually stay, and not just visit every other weekend.
Shortly after her mom gave birth to Jordan, Vanessa and Will got married, and even though Kylie was given the option to change her last name to Banks, she told her mom that she liked her name the way it was, so her mom let her keep the name Butler. Kylie also really started to enjoy having a whole family, rather than just a mom, even if things were a bit complicated with her other brother.
Kylie also started to love school, and she loved getting top marks on all of her school-work. Her teachers called her a perfectionist and would always give her awards which she would take home and hang up on the fridge, even if that meant sometimes pushing Trevor's stuff to the side so that she could make it look nice. When she was nine, her mom found out that she was pregnant with twins, so Jordan, Kylie, Will and Vanessa all packed up their little three bedroom apartment in Miduna Beach and moved into a bigger house in Barfield. The house was big enough for everyone to have their own rooms, even Trevor when he was there. They also had a pool and a pet dog named Dingo. Kylie loved her life. She didn't think it could get any better, and then her mom gave birth to Zack and Bailey.
Even though Kylie loved her little brother and sister, they were loud and they always made messes and on more than one occasion, they kept her up so late that she fell asleep in class and got in trouble. She was absolutely delighted when they started sleeping through the night, and she was absolutely sure that she didn't want any more siblings, because four was enough.
Shortly after starting high school, however, her mom fell pregnant again, this time with a little girl named Mikaela. Kylie didn't get along with Mikaela the same way she got along with her other siblings. There was a much bigger age gap between the two of them and Kylie ended up spending more time looking after Mikaela rather than playing with her. She also noticed that whenever Trevor was visiting, he always liked Mikaela much more and treated Mikaela nicer than he did with her. She would never admit it, but she was a bit jealous of the affection she never received from Trevor.
Still, Kylie persisted with her schooling and ended up graduating as valedictorian of her year. She had also decided she wanted to study medicine, taking up an offer at UMB, where she got her bachelor's degree, majoring in biology. While there, she took a few electives which coincided with Maeve Kilduff's courses and the two of them would occasionally meet up and study together or hang out. They ended up becoming really close friends, even if they stopped having classes together.
After about a year and a half of living at home while going to university, Kylie couldn't take it anymore. Her house was too loud, she was constantly getting into arguments with Trevor and she constantly got asked to babysit the younger kids when she had assignments and work on top of that. After venting to Maeve, and practically having a breakdown, Maeve revealed that she'd been thinking about moving out, but didn't know who to move in with, so the two girls started apartment hunting, before eventually finding one in Barfield which was in their price range.
Kylie got her Bachelor of Science in Biology in 2014, and decided that she would get her doctorate at BIST to save traveling to Miduna Beach all the time and because it was a lot closer for her. She also upgraded from her waitressing job to a better paying job working as a massage therapist in Barfield.
Vanessa Banks: Kylie's mother had her when she was still fairly young as well, so for the first few years of Kylie's life, she didn't see her mom a lot. Her mom was always out working and saving up money to take care of Kylie. When Kylie was old enough to realize why her mom did what she did, she was nothing but loving and supportive of her. Kylie thinks the world of her mother, and will not let anyone speak badly of her.
Maeve Kilduff: Girls just wanna have fun.
