Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Verdandi on Fri Nov 20, 2015 10:33 am

Ask me no questions and I’ll tell you no lies.

Visually, around nineteen. Actually? Have fun guessing.

As one would perhaps expect, Tsubaki’s predominant personality traits are a certain kind of sly cleverness, wit, and the tendency to adapt to her environment. She has lost most of her affection for tricking humans, as after a while, such activities become almost formulaic in their application, and while it is an ability that can be honed to a certain studied perfection, it tends to lose all amusement when there is no longer any risk of being caught. She has not lost her instinctual love of the hunt, nor her more sensual side.

Raised to view humans as less than nothing, she still does not hold them in the highest regard. She tries to set her prejudice aside, but she has spent little time with them, and finds the wisdom of her culture and her people to be difficult to abandon, especially when the ningen so often prove to her their baseness and lack of refinement: robbing, murdering, raping… the list is quite long. Higher-order yōkai like her people hunt. Humans simply murder. Not that she’s any better these days, and she’s come to see that maybe this distinction is not so sharp as she once believed. Even so, erasing hundreds of years of personal history and ages of cultural development is not an easy task, and her circumstances have provided little by way of help in this regard.

In her dealings with others, Tsubaki could be said to be cold, uncaring, and manipulative, but to do this would be to understand only part of what is going on. She professes not to believe in things like love or honor or altruism, but yet she can sometimes be found displaying these qualities. She follows her own internal code of conduct, and treats those she comes to care about with kindness and loyalty, though such people are few and far between.

Her adaptability allows her to slip into many different personas, from shy shrine maiden to confident, lovely geisha to competent, flinty kunoichi, and in each of these guises there dwells a small kernel of what she really is. She is, however, wily and without much care for the lives of others, making her dangerous in her own way.

Rather new to her current employment arrangement, Tsubaki does not yet know the other shinobi very well, nor does she particularly desire to. Also, she doesn’t hold humans in very high regard. In terms of family, she has a father, a brother, and three sisters still living. The youngest of her line, it was her birth that killed her mother, and as a result, she and her sisters have always had bitterness between them. It is also she, however, that most strongly resembles her mother, supposedly the most lovely yōkai in a thousand years. Naturally, those were always pretty big shoes to fill. Currently, she is estranged from her father and her relationship with her brother, though good, is somewhat strained, and they have not seen each other for many years.

Tsubaki’s history is not readily shared with others, and so most know little about her. In point of fact, only Amaya has been able to deduce pieces of it, and what she’s figured out is minimal, if important: Tsubaki was once named Kimiko, and is the youngest daughter of the Tsukihara, the white kitsune clan that rule the House of the Moon. Considering that she’s here and not in the demon realm, a fair guess is that she’s an exile, either voluntarily or otherwise, but aside from that and the fact that Yousuke has her starball, there’s not much widely known.
