Physical Characteristics

  • Height: 170.18 cm (5'7”)
  • Weight: 60.33 kg (133 lbs)
  • Measurements: 35C-23-35

Build and Skin Color: Asami has a very curvaceous body which definitely seems to exemplify the beautiful woman appeal.

Eyes and Facial Features: Asami has very beautiful Yamatian features including the traditional almond shaped eyes, high cheek bones and an slightly narrowed heart shaped face with a pointed chin. Her eye lashes are long and her eyes are green.

Ears: Neko style with black green fur like her hair.

Hair Color and Style: She has very long, shimmering hair that flows down to the middle of her thighs. She keeps the end of her hair pulled up into a small rounded clasp that is gold in color with carvings of a tortoise on it. Her hair appears to be black but when the light hits it right you can see it is in fact a very dark green. The style it self would resemble something you would expect a Japanese princess to have, very long, full and well maintained.

Distinguishing Features: Asami has a beauty mark on the bottom left side of her face, just above the chin. She also wears a green head band that has a dragon design on it that frames underneath her bangs.

Psychological Characteristics

Personality: Asami could be summed up as a hopeful pacifist. She enjoys all the aspects of life minus the violent or hurtful ones. Asami immediately stands out differently from what one would expect a Ketsurui Samurai to be like in the fact she almost always has a small smile on her face. The aura she seems to exude is a friendly and nurturing one. Not the harsh unempathetic aura one would expect from the cold arm of the Empire .

Having spent more time with small Yamataian border settlements and areas that are not quite so prosperous, Asami has grown an appreciation for a very simple life style. This can be reflected in the very simple yet informative advice or council others might seek from her. She enjoys being able to guide others through their troubles by helping provide spiritual guidance as well as work with cultural and spiritual taboos in order to aid others (such as luck charms for example).

Having spent much of her time helping to teach children while in some of the not so well off settlements, Asami has developed a bit of a maternal instinct. This will come out at times with those she councils often or helps.

As a bit of a quirk, Asami has a penchant for trying to 'prescribe' out there mythical, spiritual, or herbal solutions for people's problems. This has led to things such as palm readings, herbal broths, luck talismans and various other things that can 'help' an individual through their situation….for a price. Granted all the proceeds go to charities an orphanages but still…. It isn't quite a scam ….or is it?

  • Likes: Sunny Days, Tea, Tea Ceremony, Children, Helping Others, Cooking, The Rain, Philosophical Conversations, Painting, Dango, The Snow, Flowers (Especially Irises), Reading Fortunes
  • Dislikes: Violence, Blood, Children Crying, Machine Processed Tea, Cruelty, Killing People, Stale Bread, Sour Candy, Paper Cuts
  • Goals: Create an orphanage for children who have lost their homes during the many wars that have plagued the Empire. To help build and live in a village that follows very old Yamatian customs (traditional Japanese) were it can be peaceful all the time and the residents wont have to worry about war.

History

Family (or Creators)

Pre-RP

When Asami was born there were great things expected of her. She was fairly gifted throughout her trainee period and was expected to become a valuable tool to the Ketsurui Clan as a Karibito-no-akuma. Yet when she was under going the training Asami just didn't seem to keep the mind set for the position. The idea of killing others seemed to bother her more and more. The Ketsurui Samurai don't have a place for those who can't keep up and so her sensei dropped her from her training in that field. Not wanting to waste a valuable resource, the Samurai House instead switched Asami to a class that seemed to fit her personality better. Six months later Asami was finished with her training as an Arahoshi and left the Samurai House to aide the Empire. In her five years of life she has only been back three times, the last being to upgrade to the new NH-33 (Eihei) body.

She has enjoyed travelling and seeing the parts of the Empire that most people don't get to see. With so many wars occurring, the need for her in various communities has never ceased, bringing solace and guidance to those settlements that are effected by war either directly or emotionally due to so many of its citizens off aiding the war effort. Asumi has found a niche with the common people that brings her joy. Being far removed from the Samurai House has granted her the freedom to discover and explore her emotions which has aided her in aiding others. Finding that the rigid, emotionless teachings that where drilled into her to while not be ineffective, to at times need to be properly balanced with a softer touch in order to truly understand and help the common person. This ability has aided her in actually making a difference in many of the communities she has visited, a small light in the dark times of war.

With the war with the NMX finally seeming to be over the winds of change have forced Asami into a new situation. Due to the Shadow Viper betrayal, many things have changed for the Ketsurui Samurai. Being placed under a semi house arrest, most of the samurai around the Empire have been ordered to return to the Samurai House. This has put the Ketsurui Family in a bit of a bad situation. Though their order is heavily uner question and suspicion, their abilities against the lingering Shadow Vipers are need now more than ever. Asami was interviewed and chosen out of a group of candidates by Ketsurui Yui for a particular mission. Having received orders from the Ketsurui Yui and Samurai House, Asami is now en-route to the YSS Eucharis in order to act as a stand-in Yojimbo for Ketsurui Hanako until the current situation can be resolved. With the Samurai House's hands tied and the Shadow Vipers still at large having a quasi-samurai pacifist protect a member of the Ketsurui family is better than not having one at all.

RP History

After the Eucharis

Asami went back to her life as a wandering Arahoshi soon thereafter, finding that the secluded lifestyle aboard a ship was not for her and that the princess Hanako was more than capable of holding her own. She wandered Yamataian systems and planets for a few years, ever capable of finding a face to cheer and a hand to hold. She was a good shoulder to cry on and for the little ones, a good lap to sit on. After some years of this in YE 39, she was called back to duty, this time as a sensei for younger students and trainees at Fort Hajime.

Skills

Communication

Asami is familiar with basic radio operation and procedures and can make transmissions to and receive transmissions from other characters through headsets, starships, power armor, and shuttles in both combat and non-combat conditions.

Asami has traveled around the Empire and become fluent in multiple languages such as Yamataian, Nepleslian, Seraphim, Saalsari, Lorath, and Abwheran. She can speak and write all six correctly and efficiently and can write reports, fill forms, issue orders under fire, etc.

Like all Nekovalkyrja Asami is able to transmit and receive data via a secure form of telepathy.

Fighting

All Ketsurui Samurai are masters of melee combat. Asami is skilled and experienced in combat both in Yamatai-like conditions and in zero-gravity, with and without weapons. Weapons she is an expert in include pistols, swords, spears, staves, knives, and power armor. Ketsurui Samurai are also trained with grenades, rifles, machine-guns, and a variety of randomized exotic weaponry. Asami is primarily focused in flexible, acrobatic spear forms and open hand forms.

Specialties: Nana Kamigami Seifuku Chikyu Ryu Sojutsu is the form which Asami is proficient with. It is a culmination of many different past martial art forms focused into one. Due to Asami's sensei disappearing three years ago and her other fellow pupils having been killed in action Asami is currently the only practitioner of this style left.

Information Technology

Asami is capable of operating any computer system that uses the Kessaku OS, found on all Star Army starships. She is proficient in entering and/or searching for information.

Mathematics

Asami received basic mathematics training, to including up to algebra and trigonometry.

Entertainment/Culinary/Art and Vocations

Asami is versed in a wide range of different traditional Yamataian art styles, cooking traditional dishes and traditional entertainment forms.

Humanities and Knowledge

Asami has an extensive knowledge of Shugendō, which is the primary art she utilizes to perform her duties as an Arahoshi. This art being the proper rituals, prayers, chants and practices she must perform as a spiritual guide and teacher to those she encounters around the Empire.

Asami is also well studied in Yamataian history and has a keen interest in pre-Imperial history.

She has also made it a point to study many different cultures, customs, and philosophies in order to be able to better reach those she meets and in essence be more diplomatic in her teachings.

Medical

Asami is well trained in dealing with a variety of medical situations and is able to use modern medical technology fairly competently. When stuck with out the use of the former or in certain circumstances she resorts to using herbal-ism in order to treat individuals. Asami often prefers resorting to these methods instead due to being of the opinion that it is more natural to cure and heal others through these methods.
