Different colors of face paint have different meanings for Qara. Once someone gets to know her, they'll begin to see the colors almost like another form of body-language. Qara's family's paint color definitions may be different from other family units that lived in the Hotgo tribe.
Because paint colors change shades due to drying and whether, she does not use different shades of the same colors to represent variations of her general emotions. Instead, she usually marks the strongest emotions she is feeling in a general sense. However, different color combinations can give greater detail to her emotional state, but it is less common for her to use more than one color at a time.
The marks of paint Qara makes are simple smudges or lines. Only in ceremonies or special occasions does she make coherent symbols on her face using the paints.
The paints do not replace facial expressions or body language for her. They are used for emotional honesty and clarity as taught by her culture.

A violet-bladed short-sword made by the Kagon tribe. Either kept on Horsebird or Qara's belt.
A Mythrite Zweihander rewarded to Qara after she delivered a message from Whitebrim Fort to Dragonhead during the Dravanian siege of The Steps of Faith.
A bracelet made of polished bone segmented into four parts. At its center rests a purple, lightning-attuned crystal within a simple gold frame. It is said that the materials of bone and gold made excellent catalysts to help channel one's aether. A starlight gift from Zanzan to Qara to aid her in her magical training. Worn to this day.
A silver chain that is made with an eastern design. The main pendant itself has a gold sun-like frame with blue hues that weaved along its edges like ribbons. Within the frame was an obsidian black backdrop with fragments of Moonstones shaped into small circles as stars. The indentations inside gives the illusion of the stars and the sky moving as one would see it. There is a second hidden feature. Held up to a full moon, the pendant will expose a hidden message for any who can see.
"For Qara Hotgo and Zanzan Yanzan. May their love be as endless as the night sky itself." Crafted by Arala Makeo.
A ring crafted in the Xaela style with Xaela runes that read "Forever loyal Ajaa". It's part of a matching pair. Chakha Hotgo has the other ring that reads "Forever loyal Doyi".

Shria Kagon: "Qara...? She was a dear friend for many years. I always felt I needed to teach her how to lighten up a little, but her focus on the job at hand was one of the things I loved and miss about her."
Zanzan Yanzan: "Qara... She lost everything dear to her. Yet, here she stands. A passionate and undying fire. She is quite beautiful, yes? What captured my heart, however, was her own. There is not another person I love more than her. What a star she is..."
