Mikaela is thin and has an above average height for her age, five foot one. Mikaela has a big smile that can light up a room, especially when her smiles are authentic and from the heart. She has big brown eyes full of playfulness and adventure. Currently, since Mikaela is a child, she struggles with her look. She hasn't quite figured out what her style is. She used to hate her African-American hair, but now she has grown to love it and the hairstyles she can perform with it. She wears a bunch of different styles, and her closet has a wide variety of clothes and shoes in there. Often, she mimics her mom and sisters' clothing style as well, and to a certain extent, her brothers'. She has no idea if she wants to go natural or wear light makeup, either, so she switches it up, mostly preferring natural.
Mikaela Banks is a sweet and bubbly young girl. She sees the good in everyone, and she is always looking on the bright side of things. She is very happy-go-lucky and can go from sad to happy in seconds. Mikaela is used to having attention on her, so she feels uneasy when she is not in the spotlight. She can be known to bring herself into anything because she hates being left out. She tends to get embarrassed when she is called out for her flaws or when people see her not getting her way. Usually, when she gets embarrassed, she either tries to play it off or she cries.
Mikaela is very family-oriented and loves seeing her family get along or interacting. She has a deep, secret pleasure whenever she sees family members getting along or having fun together. Those are always the best moments in life for her. Mikaela attempts to always be a peacemaker, but that often bothers people when they think she is sticking her nose in something that she doesn't belong her. She usually remains unaffected by that and continues on meddling with people's affairs anyway.
Being a child, having fun is Mikaela's main priority in life right now, and she wants everyone else around her to be having fun too. She tends to slack off in stuff that is uninteresting to her, such as schoolwork and chores, however, and she is constantly reminded that her "fun first, work later" attitude will not benefit her later on in life.
Mikaela was born in early 2004 to a full house. She had five other siblings that were born before her. Being the baby of the family, Mikaela got all of their hand-me-downs and was spoiled severely. Growing up, Mikaela had attention on her most of the time and had gotten very much used to it. Even being the main point of her parents' attention, she still had to somewhat share with her siblings.
Mikaela never felt lonely when she was little since she always had someone to be able to be around, whether it be a brother, sister, mom, or dad. When she got older, though, she noticed that the closest people to her age at home were the twins, Bailey and Zack, and they preferred to play with each other than with Mikaela. Mikaela didn't really mind it and tried to play with them anyway. Mikaela doesn't really let small stuff like that stop her from having fun.
Around this time, she had started to feel self-conscious about her hair. At school, most of the other girls seemed to have straight hair and even if they had her texture, they would have perms, which her mom said was pretty risky to have. Mikaela started looking at her sisters, Kylie and Bailey, to see how they manage their hair, and pretty soon found styles that worked out for her. She has never felt uncomfortable about her hair ever since. It was also this time that her oldest siblings, Trevor and Kylie, moved out. Mikaela was sad to see them go, but was comforted by the thought that they would be visiting.
Now, Mikaela is at elementary school and she is still trying to spend as much time as she can with her family. She anticipates whenever Kylie or Trevor visit and in the meantime, she is focused on having as much as she possibly can and avoiding homework, bedtimes, and anything related at all costs.
Mikaela has always had a big family.
Vanessa Butler and Will Banks: Mikaela's parents. They baby her all of the time and they give her a lot of attention. Mikaela is really fascinated with her mom's hair and her dad's humor. She thinks they are great. Will cheated on another family with Vanessa, but he divorced his other wife, married Vanessa, and had four more kids.
Kylie Butler: Kylie is Mikaela's oldest sister and the oldest of all of the kids. Mikaela sees Kylie as one of her role models, but she also likes Kylie watching over her. She loves when she gets Kylie's attention or impresses her. Kylie moved out of the house, but she still visits the house. Mikaela loves Kylie's ambitiousness but is too lazy to copy it, so she just feels happy from her success.
Trevor Banks: Trevor is Mikaela's oldest brother. They are half-siblings, but Mikaela doesn't really know and even when she hears information that suggests that, she likes to overlook it and not think about it too much. Mikaela thinks Trevor is super awesome and she likes hearing what he is up to. She also likes getting presents and special attention from him, and she has noticed that he probably treats her nicer than the rest of the family.
Jordan Banks: Jordan is Mikaela's older brother. She thinks Jordan is a really cool person and admires his artistic flair. Jordan taught Mikaela how to paint when she was younger, and she loved it. Mikaela always comes to Jordan when she has a question on something to do with art. She likes talking to him about other things as well, even though he considers her annoying sometimes.
Zack Banks: Zack is Mikaela's youngest older brother. She barely ever got conversations with him without Bailey around, but lately, she has gotten to talk to him more and more. She thinks Zack is super hip and agrees with nearly everything he does.
Bailey Banks: Bailey is Mikaela's youngest older sibling and is her sister. Mikaela likes to copy Bailey's style sometimes, but usually when she does, she does not really think she can pull it off. Mikaela, like Zack, barely ever got to talk to Bailey alone in the past, but she has found it easier to do recently.
Mikaela considers anyone that is nice to her or tolerates her as a friend.

In the past ten years, Mikaela has definitely matured. In her late middle school years, she started to take school more seriously once she realized how deeply what she did in school would affect her future. She became very stressed trying to bring her grades up and catch up after all of those lazy years, but she persevered through it.
High school was her biggest changing period. She was more organized than ever, and she realized that encouraging others was her passion and something she wanted to do for a living. She came out as pansexual to her family in tenth grade, which was received pretty well. She expected that, since being LGBT+ is a pretty regular thing by 2025.
She graduated from high school as valedictorian, and although she could get into a higher college, Mikaela opted to go to Barfield Community College, so she could be close to her friends and family. During her freshman year, she met Dana Williams, her serious girlfriend. Mikaela has high hopes with this relationship and is even thinking of marriage and starting a family with Dana in the future. They have already talked about it, and they both agree to wait until they get at a good point in their aspirations first.
