Kayley is a brave and strong-willed young woman, who wants more than anything to become a knight like her father. Kayley is definitely a tomboy, dressing in boyish clothing and much preferring horse riding and sword fighting to wearing pretty clothes and doing farm work. Kayley's determination often leads her to acting before she thinks and she constantly talks as well, but over the course of the film, she learns to be more patient. Kayley expresses deep remorse when her actions cause others to be hurt - even inadvertently. Although, despite tragically losing her father at a young age, Kayley retains a positive, can-do attitude, and inspires courage and goodwill in others.
Kayley is a slender, young woman with fair skin, long dark red hair, brown eyes, and pink lips.
When she was a child, she wore a gray long-sleeved tunic with a blue cape, light gray pants and brown shoes.
When she is a young woman, she has a gold headband and her hair is in a ponytail with a gold hair-tie, she wore a purple tunic with two dark purple laces and collar (red in merchandising), underneath is a dark yellow long sleeved shirt and a long sleeved light blue shirt underneath, around her waist is a dark purple sash (red in merchandising), she wore light blue tight pants and brown ankle boots with dark brown cuffs.
During the knighting ceremony at the end of the film, Kayley wears a sparkling white dress and a circle of flowers on her head.
