A Dog "Bark! Bark bark! Bark bark bark bark!"
Birth Name: Azami Tsurinai Aliases: Cadet Canine, Weirdo Mutt, Queen's Almost-Literal Lapdog Gender: Female Age: 3 (Dog Years) Birth Day: 4/1 Arcana: Aeon Place of Residence: East Eden Academy Semester: N/A Class: N/A
Part/Full Time Job: Azami is a trained guard dog. In addition, she's to become a Cadet.
Appearance: Azami is a Shiba Inu in both body and soul. She's thirty-nine centimeters tall and weighs about twenty pounds. Her fur is golden and she has a short tail which almost always is positioned upward in the air, thus indicating a certain sense of confidence and power, or at least the facade of one. Around her neck, she sports a collar that's been designed to be attachable to a leash, although if one were to inspect the engraving on the collar, they'd discover the only word legible on it is "Azami."
Notably, she wears a set of clothes and a wig that somewhat resemble a certain someone's attire, though there is no relation between the two beyond that of pure, humorous coincidence.
Personality: Azami displays many behavioral characteristics common to her breed. She's a strong, independent canine who rarely falls back on others and prides herself on her self-reliance. Never in short supply of grace, she acts with an elegance that would no doubt strike fear into the hearts of terrorists were it not for the fact that she's an actual dog.
However, she is not simply a Shiba Inu. Azami is her own creature and must be assessed as such for the sake of accuracy. Temperamental and at times downright bipolar, she can act very cold and distant towards the people she loves should they scorn her, and this combined with her independent nature can often lead to bouts of trouble. Additionally, she displays a much keener sense of self than other dogs and even a capacity for abstract thought; she frequently seems lost in thought because she is lost in thought.
While it hasn't been of much importance to her in the past, Azami finds herself yearning to establish an identity unique to herself. She's not considered human by society, but she doesn't fully fit in with other dogs either, being trapped in a middleground between the two that leaves her little in the way of identity. Because of this she feels compelled to search for her own way of life and establish herself as an individual, though this goal of hers can be difficult at times due to the innate pack mentality of her species and the discipline and teamwork required to be a Cadet.
In the end, Azami's a very complex person on the inside, even if it just seems like she's an ordinary dog. Few, however, see this side of her thanks to a seemingly impenetrable language barrier. It remains unclear if Azami will ever find someone truly capable of understanding her...
—Strength Name: Healthy —Description: Azami is not immortal by any means, but she's at peak healthiness for a member of her species. She's full of energy and in prime shape for dealing with the sort of combat situations her job's built around tackling. Due to her superb health, it's also likely she'll live longer than the average Shiba, although this isn't taking into account the risks involved with engaging demons in combat of course. Mechanically speaking, all this translates to moving at double speed in dungeons.
—Strength Name: Tsurinai Combat Training —Description: Trained by expert animal handlers and combat practitioners, Azami is one of the best guard dogs a person could ask for. She's able to recognize the commands of her superiors with ease and displays lightning quick reflexes well beyond those of a mere companion pet.
—Strength Name: Adorable —Description: She may be a strange dog, but Azami's a dog nonetheless, and her innate cuteness can strike hesitance into the hearts of those who would dare face her. Dog-lovers may potentially find themselves questioning their willingness to fight and outside of combat they may feel a desire to protect or aid her to the best of their capabilities.
—Strength Name: Observant —Description: Azami has been trained to take notice of things others wouldn't and, most importantly, to think and act quickly. Her mind is able to fill in the blanks swiftly and she can reach accurate conclusions with a greater speed than not just the average dog, but most likely the average human as well. Mechanically, this translates to starting with an extra level of intelligence.
----- ((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:
—Weakness Name: A Dog's Life —Description: Perhaps Azami's greatest weakness, she is subject to great stigma thanks to her species, even from her peers. She can't purchase items/services from shops on her own, will likely attract unwanted attention when she heads out on her own, and is at risk of being underestimated, dismissed, or even outright ignored by her superiors in the Cadets. It's unlikely she'll ever attain a Cadet rank of her own and even if she does the likelihood of her being considered for the position of Royal Guard is little to none.
—Weakness Name: Supernatural Aura —Description: Azami's potential is particularly noticeable for unknown reasons and those who don't possess such a thing tend to be unconsciously aware that she's "different" from them. While they won't exactly be able to place it, Azami will frequently seem odd and mysterious to those around her, though not enough so to warrant a hostile or panicked response of course.
—Weakness Name: Golden Malice —Description: Whenever she's about to strike at an enemy, Azami's eyes will glow yellow as if she were summoning her Persona. This can make her somewhat predictable, but only if her opponent notices this trend.
—Weakness Name: Language Barrier —Description: Azami has a hard time expressing herself or communicating her thoughts. Only through Remote View can she bypass this barrier and speak to her fellow Cadets in a language they can understand, but even then she may have trouble getting her point across due to her lack of experience speaking with humans directly. Mechanically, this means she has to level up her expression twice to get past its first rank.
----- ((A floating weakness is one gained in RP. It could be a fear you inherited during RP, or an injury that hinders your character. Some can be temporary while others can be permanent.)
—Floating Weakness Name: —Description:
Soul Bound Weapon:
Weapon Name: Tail Weapon Description: In combat, Azami's tail becomes akin to a soulbound weapon. There are no differences in how it appears normally, but people around her may notice a few sparkles in the air when it's first "summoned" to her and keen eyes may notice it seemingly growing in length. It's approximately a foot long. Weapon Attack Type: Strike Weapon Element:
Side-Arm Name: Squeak-Squeak Side-Arm Description: A squeaky toy about the size of a pistol which fires bullets when Azami bites down on it hard enough. Its "barrel" is about four inches long.
Side-Arm Attack Type: Gun Side-Arm Style: Revolver - Single Shot - Accuracy is increased by 20%. Consumes only one type of ammo per use. Can shoot only one enemy at a time.
History: In Japan the Tsurinai family are largely responsible for overseeing and protecting this region. To this end, they employee those with the potential similar to how Endymion relies on Cadets. Among their forces are a few guard dogs who are trained to deal with supernatural threats in the same way their masters are: Azami is one such dog. Her potential almost immediately made her stand out among her peers and from a young age she was groomed to be the perfect guard dog.
Sent to Endymion to aid Shiina and join the Cadets alongside her, Azami currently resides within the city, and preparations are being made for her induction into the Cadets. As Psyche Terrorists stalk the shadows and tensions slowly grow, Azami finds herself determined to make her masters proud and protect the people of Endymion. At the same time, however, she struggles to forge an identity for herself outside of being a Tsurinai. It remains unclear if she'll achieve either goal, but she clearly has no intention of backing down.

Ok with all seriousness of grading the app.
The connection to azami and prior events as well I'm rather iffy about. As this could just be a general dog tbh. Red talons is an automatic strength given this is a dog and doesn't really need to be explictly stated. It would be preferred if you tried rewriting the dog with a different background.
