Quotes: Pick youself up, dust youself off.
-Shiro is loud mouthed but tight lipped. You can either hear what she says, or she hasn't said anything at all. She's very good at keeping secrets.
-Reading and studying are not her forte, but she can do them if she must. That wont stop her complaining about it though.
-She's actually quite sloppy, the only reason she's well dressed every morning is because her sister fixes her clothes for her. She gave up on having long hair because it was too troublesome to look after.
-Her speech is less formal than her sister's, but she still avoids swearwords and crude things by habit due to her upbringing.
-Shiro often thinks of herself as a hero, running in to help people who are being bullied. It often looks like she's being full of herself, which... she is really. She's thinks she's better than that boy being kicked till he's down, so it's expected of her to save him. Because she's better, she must help.
-Having said that, she doesn't like hanging around weaklings, and will avoid their companionship as much as possible, only talking to them if their skills are necessary for something.
-Though she doesn't enjoy hanging out with weaklings, Shiro understands that not everyone shows their strength on the outside, nor all the time. She will generally push on their first few encounters to discover the extent of their weakness and strength. It's important to know your peers and their limits. If she concludes that you are a weakling, she will then avoid you and on the occassions you do meet, push your boundaries.
-Shiro is a completely different person if her sister Aki is around. She ignores everyone and everything if her sister doesn't mention it, follows her sister's orders to the letter and generally just sits in the background, being #2
-The opposite is also true when Aki isn't around. Shiro, having lost the attention of her sister, seeks other ways to fulfill her needs. She forces the attention of others, attempting to leave an unforgettable impression, wether negative or positive
-Shiro isn't afraid of getting hurt, whether it be from a fight, training or doing something stupid. She will also never back down from a dare or challenge.
-She'll never break a promise. Breaking promises is for weaklings who can't keep them.
-Shiro and Aki grew up in a temple, from a young age they were expected to practice their faith and look after the temple, sweeping the path every morning and polishing the wooden floors. It wasn't much, but it was more than most pre-schoolers were used to.
-Shiro discovered her love of fighting during Elementary school when she came back in the afternoons continuously covered in new bruises. Her Mother quickly decided to teach her how to fight properly.
"If you're going to fight, do it properly and for the right reasons!"
-The lessons changed her personality from that of a dilinquent whose life revolved around getting into fights, to that of a hero, whose life revolved around getting into fights helping people. She began looking down on those who were not as good as she and she'd only respect those who could prove they were.
-Shiro was taught Archery on top of her other martial arts, as Archery is a skill passed down her family. She's not nearly as good as Aki, nor as passionate.
-Shiro picked up some bad habits from school. She found some crude language and accidentally used it at the temple, eliciting punishment from her Father. She learnt very quickly which words to avoid. These punishments helped her stop swearing, but she's left with a 'scar', when other people use swearwords she's reminded of her punishment. Usually she just flinches, but if you let out a barrage, she might get close to tears. This will be the closest you will ever get to seeing her cry.
-During middle school Shiro beat up a teacher that was sexually harassing a female student, getting the guy fired. The next time she saw the girl during school, she avoided her, not wanting to be caught up in a 'weakling's' pace. The girl complained, and Shiro was expelled. She was on thin ice for fighting already, then add beating up a teacher AND 'bullying' the girl she saved, it just pushed the school board over the edge.
-Shiro was home schooled for the next few years, she lost the few social skills she had during this time and became completely reliant on Aki, who stayed home with her the entire time.
-The lessons were relentless, they were being taught more than normal students and higher levels. Shiro had always struggled with normal school work, the extra load was like hell to her. It re-inforced her hatred of reading.
-Without club activities or fights to take up their time, the twins watched much more anime. Aki had always preferred manga, but Shiro's distaste for reading forced them to watch instead. She quickly began idolising various characters and not only their fighting ability, but their sense of justice.
"Aki, I'm going to join the military. I'm going to save lives."
-During their homeschooling days they took a trip to one of the most beautiful lakes in the area. Aki was flying a kite and the wind blew it into a tree, so Shiro climbed to get it back. A branch broke on her decent about halfway down. She broke her arm, and had many minor lacerations all over her body. Some left scars. One left quite a large scar on her lower back.
-When she did go back to school, she left home, enrolling at a boarding school, sick of her parents ramming their beliefs down her throat. She had been forced to speak formally again, as if she respected everyone she spoke to and it sickened her. Her last school year; her last chance. She needed to be more adept at being in society to fulfill her goal.
+Assassin and Military themed Anime
+Military-like clothing & uniforms
+Athletics or anything that gets your blood pumping
+Chocolate and anything with chocolate in it
-Romance novels/TV shows/manga etc. If Romance is the only thing it has going for it, she doesn't want to know.
-Reading in general, whether it be a manga, novel or instructions
-People who pry on weaklings without reason
She may or may not be in the possetion of illegal fire arms....
Her favourite animes include Madlax, Gunsligner Girl, Noir, Fullmetal Alchemist
She treated her stuffed toys from when she was a child very roughly, pretending any rips or stains were simply battle scars that added character
She has a large scar on her lower back
She's incredibly ticklish
Her dislike of reading may come from the fact she needs glasses. Since glasses would get in the way of fighting, she asked Aki to buy her contacts. Aki bought her silver contacts.
Dyeing some of her hair silver was a dare from Aki.
Yes, she wears military boots with her school uniform.
Her backback, that I haven't drawn, is the cutest kitty design you could have ever seen~
Aki - Shiro's twin sister and favourite person in the whole wide world. Misses her dearly when she's not there.
Ren - Shiro was unsure about Ren when they first met, but she's pretty cool with him now. She'd rather not have him as a friend, because he makes such a good rival.
Leia - A Kouhai in the Archery Club. Shiro gets along well with her and doesn't mind her company.
Ruri (Nickname-chan) - Incredibly entertaining to be around. She doesn't mope or winge and always gives Shiro something to laugh about.
Suketi - There's something about her that Shiro really likes. Probably her first choice if she had to choose favourites.
Dantae - He seems up for a challenge, and willing to try anything Shiro throws at him, even if it's just to show off. She doesn't dislike that kind of person.
Oh!!! Sounds good to me! I'll be absent till sunday, so don't expect a reply till then XD
I'd be cool RPing through note, if you want? And anytime we catch each other in the chatroom. (Though I'm disappearing on the 11th for Aussie, I'll only be replying to notes, so any RP done elsewhere will be non existent in that time eg. the christmas party. And then I get back on the 28th. But I'll have a huge amount of stuff to do, so it will be only note RPs again untill I clean out my to-do list again.
I would love to!! Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
Would you like to start? I've used most of my create starts for Shiro, I'll need to think of some more. You can only meet someone by throwing a book at them once, //shrugs
Oh ho ho~ Why thank you! This is just another thing off my list I want to finish before my short vacation in australia. Alas, I have a VERY long list.
Shiro: Raises an eyebrow at you "I do not know which japanese you are reffering to, but I most definitely do NOT say that, and not once has it been directed at me. You are mistaken"
