Updated: 6/20/2016

Heya! I'm your friendly neighborhood Larsinny, a demon here to keep you updated on the current debacles going on within the site! Okay, maybe not debacles... Anyway! The Endymion Plot, our Third Main Plot, has started! We also have our previous plot's part two running next to it for Azores! If you're a new member looking to join the new plot, you will want to choose Endymion. However, if you're interested in our older plot, Azores, you may also join that one aswell. The choice is ultimately up to you! The Dungeon Master of the Azores plot is Grantus and the DM of the current Endymion plot is Philemon.

All templates on the site have been updated, and this also includes the rules aswell. When referring to the rules, please disregard any that say "Old" or "Obsolete" as we are no longer using those rules for the Endymion Plot. Oh, don't be mistaken! I love breaking the rules! But in this case, follow them or erasure!

Be sure to constantly check the update thread for any changes to the boards. You can find it ->Here<-

Azami Aihara
"It's become increasingly clear to me that the only way to win the game of life is to avoid participating in it from the start."




The Biography


Birth Name: Azami Aihara
Aliases: shinaisamurai15 (Online Username)
Gender: Female
Age: 19
Birth Day: January 9th
Arcana: Devil
Place of Residence: An apartment in San Malarus.
Academy Semester: Graduated. Currently attending university.
Class: N/A

Club: N/A

Part/Full Time Job: Thanks to her reputation as a loyal customer during her time in Azores and her grandmother's connections to the owners of the place, Azami has already secured herself a part-time position as a waitress at a restaurant known as Monde Étape. She works evenings on weekends and will sometimes fill in for other employees. Sadly, business has significantly fallen and the once popular restaurant struggles to scrape by.

Appearance: Not much has changed about how Azami looks. She still possesses the same brown, relatively short hair that she sported before and still retains her slightly pale tone of skin. Her eyes, of course, remain grey and the star-esque birthmark on her forehead continues to be covered up by her bangs. She's 5'3 feet tall and weighs 119 pounds.

Her attire is really the only part of her look that's been altered that much. Azami's sky blue scarf has been replaced with a black one reserved solely for cases of cold weather. She can typically be seen wearing a red jacket with a blank, casual, black t-shirt underneath. During most seasons this is accompanied by a skirt of the same color as the t-shirt, but during winter she switches it out for a pair of red sweat pants. Lastly, she wears a pair of ordinary, white tennis shoes.

Of course, this is only her usual clothing. She wears more than one outfit and will dress in accordance with the occasion -- this one being merely a frequent style of hers.

Personality: Azami would appear to be perfectly fine to the untrained eye. She smiles, she laughs, she cries, she shouts, she broods, [and] she feels. A stranger would think nothing of her and those who know her, recalling her stoicism in the years prior, would think that she's changed for the better. However, this is not the real Azami. Their perceptions of her whisper lies and falsehoods to them -- her true self locked away from their prying eyes.

The girl maintains her figurative distance with others and the world around her. She engages with such things and persons when need be, but rarely does she seek out interactions with them. Often, in fact, will the reverse be true. Azami actively attempts to avoid forging bonds with others and instead isolates herself out of fear and habit. While she may unconsciously end up taking a liking to someone or end up with her metaphorical shell pierced, it'll almost never be by any whim of hers that this relationship begins. Believing that bonds only bring pain in the end, she seeks solitude whilst repressing her pain and loneliness: shoving it deep down inside her heart and putting on the facade of a stable human being.

A slave to her emotions, Azami is prone to acting on impulse and lashing out. While she can certainly be rational and think calmly about the situation at hand, strong feelings can very easily rip that ability away from her and she can be easy prey for stress within some circumstances. If Azami is enraged or saddened, she won't be able to easily gain a grip on those emotions and will typically be controlled by them until they pass. Her capability to reason and plan will be overcome by these strong feelings and she will be led to act brashly without any sort of forethought or concern for consequences.

Though she continues to label herself as a realist, Azami has become somewhat more pessimistic about life. She has a negative view of it and thinks of herself as powerless to change anything on a grand scale. Individuals are indeed the masters of their own fate in her eyes, but she also believes that they don't have nearly the level of control that would be desirable.

Knowledge is a thing she holds in high esteem. She seeks to learn more about all kinds of subjects and topics -- whether it be philosophy, history, mathematics, literature, or (her favorite) psychology. This is in part due to her curiosity; a powerful driving force in her nowadays.

Azami is very competitive. No matter how mundane what she's doing is, she strives for perfection in it and will ruthlessly pursue a victory over others. However, she sees no point in holding a grudge against those who have bested her. When she fails, she deems it a result of her own weakness, as opposed to the strength of those around her. She holds no hatred or malice for the other party in most circumstances and will simply accept her defeat for what it is.

In the end, Azami is a complex person in a complex world. Yet her wish is simple: to avoid bringing more pain to herself and those around her. This wish, however, is a tragic one. In her pursuit of it she only ends up hurting herself and giving others one less shoulder to lean on. Ironically enough, her fear of being hurt has ended in her hurting even more.



 
The Potential
   


Strengths:

Strength Name: Logic
Description: Azami has retained her skill in logic. As an amateur practitioner of it, she can more easily piece together the information available to her in order to come to a conclusion about the situation or issue at hand. While she is by no means perfect at this and can end up making mistakes, she's at least somewhat better at it than the average individual.

Strength Name: Reflexes
Description: Years of kendo have honed Azami's physical reflexes. She's thus quicker to respond to objects or attacks thrown her way. For example, if a box above her head fell down she would most likely be able to shift out of the way and avoid it before it came into impact with her.

Strength Name: Cat-Lover
Description: Despite her preference for dogs, Azami gets along better with cats. They typically enjoy her company and she typically enjoys theirs. Nevertheless, they don't have some sort of unbreakable bond. How well they got along depends on the nature of the interaction and the cat's individual personality. Generally speaking though, Azami won't have any sort of significant problem with them.

Strength Name: The Masquerade
Description: Though she was rather stoic before and during her time in Azores, Azami has switched out that old mask for a new one in an effort to make necessary social interactions with others easier and, overall, less awkward. She's become skilled at faking displays of emotion and deceiving those around her -- appearing to be a perfectly normal and healthy teenager whenever she so pleases. However fake her smile may be, those around her will rarely notice a thing off about it and assume it to be the genuine thing.

When under enough pressure or stress, this mask is sure to break. Azami has no trouble managing false emotions, but she has a hard time controlling her real ones.

Strength Name: Bondless
Description: Azami takes 10% less damage from any character who has not established a social link with her.

((A floating Strength is a strength you've gained inRP. For example, if you were on a Kendo team for some time, you'd naturally know Kendo which is where this strength would come in. However, be aware, it will not be as strong as any of your actual strengths and is a small plus)

Floating Strength Name:
Description:


Weaknesses:

Weakness Name: Trauma
Description: Though her method of concealing her pain has changed, the actual trauma itself has not. It remains with her and continues to have a firm grip on her behavioral patterns, perceptions of the world, and overall life. She's become emotionally unstable and desperately fears the idea of losing a loved one or being rejected by those close to her. Furthermore, Azami suffers from a crippling inferiority complex. She perceives herself as weak and incapable of protecting not just those dear to her, but she herself. This and her fears about losing others makes it difficult for her to form any sort of meaningful connection with those around her and, thereby, increases the amount of effort required by both parties to form and cultivate a social link.  

Weakness Name: Curiosity Moderately Inconvenienced the Cat
Description: Azami has developed a curiosity that, while by no means suicidal, can occasionally take precedence over caution and potentially lead to less than desirable circumstances. She's constantly searching for new information to distract her from the troubles and annoyances of daily life -- sometimes getting a bit too caught up in her thirst for knowledge.

Weakness Name: Physical Strength
Description: Azami is substantially less strong physically than others when it comes to brute force, the ability to lift heavy objects, etc. While she can still do physical labor she wouldn't be of much assistance in lifting heavy boxes or knocking someone out in a fist fight when it comes down to it.

Weakness Name: Vindictive
Description: Azami doesn't let go of a grudge easily. It probably won't result in some rage-induced crusade for vengeance, but don't expect to be easily forgiven if you get on her bad side.

Weakness Name: Unstable
Description: The chance of a mental-ailment inflicting skill succeeding in inflicting said ailment on Azami is increased by 10%.

Soul Bound Weapon:


Shinai
Weapon Description: A practice sword utilized in kendo. It's long, but not very wide. Length is 114 centimeters.
Weapon Attack Type: Strike.

The Background
   


History:
Spoiler:
 

Azami's time in Azores was short-lived. Though she had begun to forge a friendship with another student, the time she spent with him was small. Eventually, she faded back into the background until the time came to leave. And so she said goodbye to Azores almost as quickly as she had said hello.

With her trauma left unconfronted, it continued to follow wherever she went. As she developed and changed, its existence had a lasting influence and impact on who she turned out to be. She became more and more reserved and, in an unconscious attempt to repress the feelings within her, became more and more stoic. She noticed, however, that this began to concern her aunt and uncle. Not wishing for them to worry about her and recognizing the potential inconvenience in acting so emotionlessly around others, she abandoned her old facade in favor of a new one.

Azami has graduated from high school since then and, after giving the issue some thought, has decided to head out for the Azores Region. She hopes to attend college and start a life there. Though not sure what exactly her goals are in life or what she wants, she continues to slog through the daily grind as she and those around her have always done -- joyful on the outside yet hollow in the inside.

Very nice. A few minor things to tweak or explain to me.

—Strength Name: Bondless
—Description: Azami takes 10% less damage from any character who has not established a social link with her.
Where is the weakness to counter this? Is the it the weakness in strength one or something else?

—Weakness Name: Vindictive
—Description: Azami doesn't let go of a grudge easily. It probably won't result in some rage-induced crusade for vengeance, but don't expect to be easily forgiven if you get on her bad side.
I find this a bit contradicting to what I just read in personality. I thought before she held no grudges against those that bested her, so why are grudges a thing for her here?

Fix these things for me and I can approve you.

This was the weakness intended to counter said strength.

Quote :
Weakness Name: It's Hopeless...
Description: The chance of a distress-inflicting skill imposing the ailment on Azami increases by 10%.

If need be, I can raise it further beyond 10%.

That part of her personality was specifically about her competitive nature and how she responds to losing. She can still form grudges against other individuals; it's just that things like being proven wrong or losing a fight aren't things on their own right that will result in a grudge being born.

If you do something that she perceives as wronging her, there's a chance she'll harbor some sort of resentment against you. But winning against her is not something she'd generally equate to wronging her. Thus, a grudge will not be born due to a rightful victory (or what she thinks is a rightful victory) over her.

The only thing I have an issue with is that you have a strength that protects you from ALL damage that you have taken when not bonded. You need a weakness that covers more than a single ailment. That's just me.

I've made it so that the 10% extra chance also applies to skills that inflict panic or fear. Would that be alright?

Make it all mental ailments and it's approved.
