Description

Coriander Adonis

"If I lose my mother, I'll lose the only person in this world who has ever truly loved me. I'll be all alone."

Image


Nicknames
Her mother affectionately calls her Cori, but she usually refers to herself as "Idiot". Most people at school refer to her as "scarface" or "spook".
Gender: Female
Council Branch Position: Assault Branch elite
Age: 17
Year : Junior
Hair color: Blonde
Eye color: Silver
Height: 5'7"

Appearance
Coriander's hair comes down to her waist and she wears her bangs long and side swept so that they cover most of the upper half of her face to hide a scar that crosses on a diagonal from her left cheekbone to her right temple. She is willowy, pale, and actually rather pretty despite the scar across her face. She usually just wears jeans, sneakers and hoodies, but anything she wears is usually to hide herself. She actually really likes gothic lolita, but even if she could afford to dress that way, she doesn't think she's pretty enough to pull it off.

ImageImage

Positives
-Cori is very kind to those she knows and likes. She enjoys making gifts for people she calls friends, but those are few and far between.
-She spends a lot of time reading and writing and her manner of speaking is fairly eloquent. She gets excellent grades when she tries.
- She speaks to everyone with respect regardless of social standing or how much she likes them.
- Cori is very understanding and easy to talk to.

Negatives
-Though Cori is very sweet, she is shy and has a hard time talking to people in the first place. She tends to just sit in a corner and avoid people, which, paired with her history of getting into fights, causes people to avoid her.
-Being an insomniac, she almost never gets a full night's sleep and often dozes off in class.
-Cori is really hard on herself, no matter how good of a job she does or how talented she is. Though praise makes her happy, she has a hard time accepting it.
-By the time she gets home from school or work, Cori wants nothing more to do with the real world. She often pushes off or forgets assignments and only does enough homework to pass.
-Most people don't know it, but Cori has many voices within her head that she struggles with on a daily basis. She talks to herself sometimes, but avoids doing it around other people. She knows she isn't "normal", but she doesn't think she's crazy either.

Biography
When Coriander was younger, her father would beat her and her mother when he would get drunk and angry. One day when she was thirteen, Cori stood up to him saying that there would come a time when she would get strong enough to protect her mother from him. The man just laughed and struck her across her face with his knife. Cori responded by throwing a knife of her own, which struck her father in the chest. Though the man didn't die, he was arrested and, eventually, sent to prison for severe domestic abuse and attempt at murder, along with several gang-related crimes.

Things got better at home for a while, but it didn't last very long. Cori's mother became very sickly and was unable to work anymore, and now she lives in a hospital bed. Cori was emancipated and lives alone in a one room apartment working multiple part-time jobs.

As if life at home wasn't bad enough, school wasn't much better. Coriander has always been a shy and quiet girl and was bullied because of it. Between the name-calling and physical abuse, she found it very difficult to trust or open up to anyone. Most people who were ever kind to her either betrayed and used her, or stopped talking to her because they were afraid of getting the same treatment she did. Things only got worse after the events that earned her the scar across her face. The beatings got worse and, though she had started martial arts at a young age, she began to get very serious in her training in order to protect herself.

When Cori was fifteen, one person got close enough for her to believe that she was finally in love. Yes, true, pure love and not just a silly infatuation. The boy's name was Sorrel, and he was everything she ever wanted. He was kind, affectionate, and he told Cori that she was beautiful while everyone else around her avoided her like a plague. Half a year later, she and Sorrel were lured behind the school and attacked by a group of school thugs. When the thugs lunged at Sorrel, Coriander snapped and took down each of them one by one, beating them within inches of their lives in her rage. Seeing the blood on her hands and face and the near-insanity in her eyes, Sorrel began to fear her. He left her soon after that and has avoided her ever since.

A year later, Cori was recruited to come to Eerie Sakura High, supposedly for her high test scores, but it was actually for her martial prowess. Little did she know, but her mother was part of a ninja clan allied with the Akabari, the ninja house based in Syringa. She was quickly inducted into the assault branch, proving herself on multiple occasions to be one of the student council's best ninja. Unfortunately, but unsurprisingly, Cori made very few friends at her new school. Achillea, however, was quick to take her in and they have become pretty close.

Special Talents
Singing- She has a beautiful soprano voice, though most people have never heard it. She usually only sings for her mother or when she is alone.
Writing- Perhaps partly due to her schizophrenia, Coriander is very creative. She creates rich and vibrant worlds through her writing and gets so involved that for a moment, those people and places are real to her. Writing is one of her escapes from reality and it calms her when she is sad or upset.
Art- Coriander is also very skilled at drawing and making things. She loves to make bouquets and draw the things in her stories. She often reserves her creations for her mother because she loves to give gifts she makes herself.
Martial Arts- Despite her shyness and seemingly fragile build, Cori is actually quite talented at martial arts. She mostly practices kendo, judo, karate, and muay thai, and has proved that she can be very dangerous when enraged.

Fighting Style
Coriander uses techniques from many different styles, including judo, karate, and muay thai. She is also quite proficient with a katana and uses the back of the blade to incapacitate delinquents. Though she is relatively new to the ninja world, she is a fast learner and can use multiple types of elemental ninjutsu, her favorites being water and wind.

Family
Mother
Euphrasia Elderflower

Father
Furze Adonis

Family Relationships
For obvious reasons, Cori hates her father and has never been to see him since he was imprisoned. She does, however, love her mother a great deal. Cori goes to visit whenever she can and brings her gifts. She worries about her mother all the time and losing her is one of her biggest fears. Without her mother, Coriander would be alone.

Likes
Sweets, flowers, hugs, animals, music, art, fantasy novels, history, forests, and being by the water's edge.

Dislikes
Sour food, vanity, unfaithful men, cigarette smoke, alcoholics, arrogance, and people who hurt those weaker than themselves.

So begins...

It's been a few weeks since the start of the school year and things have finally settled down a bit. Everyone has just gotten back into the swing of things and life is slow and quiet like everything else in a small Michigan town. For the most part, at least. The student council has gathered together for their first official meeting in order to make preparations for the year. Some of the meeting will be dedicated to the normal high school affairs, such as how to decorate the halls this year and what the homecoming theme will be. The rest, however, will be deciding a plan of action to take down the local teen gangs that are slowly taking over the bad end of town. Such is the life of the Eerie Sakura High Student Council. These kids don't play around. Well... at least, not all the time.

Achillea Lorrainne, ESHS's student council president, stood at the head of the table with one foot on her chair. Her arms were folded in front of her in a commanding fashion and she wore her usual confident smile. "Alright, everyone," she began, "are we ready to get started?"

"Uhm... Achillea?" whispered a willowy blonde girl from the corner of the room, "No one is here yet. It's just you and me."

"I know that," responded the redhead, "I was just practicing."

Coriander Adonis, an Assault Branch elite, smirked a little. "You need practice? This is your second year on the job."

"Yeah, I know. I just like to be prepared."

Kira walks into the Student council room and looks at the two females and bows, "H-hello I'm new h-here. M-my name is Kira Hall." She stuttered and a boy with a black hood over his face.
"Hello Kira and other people I'm new too I'm Zabel, just Zabel. I'm supposed to be in the assission branch." Kira looked at the boy and whispers loud enough for everyone to here.
"I-I'm in the assassination branch also. I hope to be help to you before... Well if anyone gets close to me I will tell them if they do before a week." She sighed and the boy named Zabel look at Kira from under his hoodie. He takes a seat in a chair away from everyone.

Romai walked down the halls, winking occasionally at the unsuspecting freshmen. She practically glowed with happiness. The first student council meeting. Gah! She was so excited! With a slight hop in her step, she drifted to the Student Council room and threw open the door. The moment it closed behind, her cool and aloof facade faded away, replaced with a huge smile. "Who missed me?!" she paused a blinked at the the two new people. "Well, hiya! I'm Ro!"

She spun around and took in the atmosphere of the place before seeing Achillea. Clapping her hands in joy, she ran up to the President and tackled her into a hug. "Oh! I missed you so much, Achillea! Did you miss me too?"

Achillea laughed and hugged Ro back. "Yeah, yeah. I missed you too," she said smiling broadly. Achillea had been training all summer, so she didn't really have time to hang out with anyone over the summer, so it really had been a long time. She was glad to be back to school and have the opportunity to spend time with her friends, even if most of it was spent planning ways to effectively beat up gangs.

"Where... is everyone?" asked Cori from her corner. Her voice was little more than a whisper, but it was loud enough to be heard by Ro and Achillea. "They're all late, as usual."

Kira smiles at the girls and the looks at the hoodie man. "Hi R-Ro..." the shy girl spoke. Zabel just sat in the chair and makes the hoodie lower where you couldn't even his mouth with the lip piercing. Kira wonders how the boy sees. Zabel got up and sat down in a chair where no one was where he can't be bothered, he sighed and looked at his sister 'how long can I keep the fact that I'm stalking her a secret.' He thought and looks through his hoodie and sighed loudly.

As usual, everything was slow during school hours for Gin. A quick glance at a nearby clock was all it took for him to realize he was late for the first Student Council Meeting of the year. Still, there was no hurry and no rush as he took his precious time walking to the meeting room. Gin found himself face-to-face with the door in mere minutes, a hand reaching out his pocket to open the door.

He didn't really need a grand entrance, just put on a warm smile to both old and new faces, adding a light chuckle whenever he came across an old face. "Boy, have I ever missed this. How are you lot?" Pulling his gaze away from them, eyes looked the newcomers over from head to toe before softening. Clearing his throat, he supposed he should introduce himself. Looking anti-social and rude didn't often make for a good first impression. "Hello there. My name is Gin, it's a pleasure to meet you."

Kira looks at the guy named Gin and bowed, "H-Hello I'm Kira Hall." She said without stuttering mostly because she had only contact with a boy her whole life.
Kyle let's out a mean low growl at Gin but it was soft. 'Don't touch my sister I will kill you if you do.' He thought in his head.
Kira heard the soft growl and shrugged it off, "hey does any wonder what Zabel looks like or how he sees?" She announced and Kyle walked out not expecting how Kira asked that. "I will be back." He announced and slams the door and buys a mask that only covered his eyes and he took out his ear ring and took out his lip pricing and walked back in after a hour.
"Not taking anything else off hopefully everyone will trust me even though my eyes are covered if not to bad." He announced and sat in a sit away from everyone yet again.

Arthur Wright

He drifted through the halls, listless and tired. His arms hung by his sides by the merit of being attached to his shoulders and his eyes had enough bags that someone could mistake him for an insomniac. Between school and training he had little time for writing, any time spent doing so cutting into his sleep. He had pursued an inspiration of his but as a result he lost a lot of sleep. If it weren't for caffeine he wouldn't be awake for all of school. As it was the buzz was starting to wear on him like a wind up key that's slowly coming unwound.

After some fiddling with the knob the door finally opened for him. With a bit of a heavy thud he pushed the door open with the side of his shoulder causing it to swing fully open until it connected with the door stop. With his rather bloodshot eyes, nearly as dark as the abyss itself with only the slightest hint of brown, he scanned across the room looking across each person within, his trademark deep frown etched onto his face like it was stone.


Now he had only been captain of the Assault Squad Elites for roughly half a year. He's been acquainted with Achillea and though she may constantly stand on both of his nerves he obeys her for she is his superior in the hierarchy. Coriander on the other hand he's met on plenty occasions and has found more tolerable in that she is quieter generally. On top of that she is one of the few members of his squad and thus his direct concern. Everything that happens with her is his business, same with all the others on the Assault Squad Elites.

Besides that he's a relative stranger to the rest. He's only aware of the captain of the regular Assault Squad, a lesser but larger selection where the best are usually picked from to join his Elites, by word of mouth, never having met the guy in person. Same went for the head of recon. Anyone working under them was a complete strange to him, hence a number of the people in this room were complete strangers to him.

With a lethargic nod to Achillea he sluggishly plodded towards a seat. He sat near Coriander since she was the only one in the room he even had any business talking to with the possible exception of maybe Achillea if she had news or plans pertinent to him. Besides those two he had no real intention of addressing the others. He didn't even say a word to anyone since he entered the room as he was tired and not in the mood to get in pointless time wasting arguments which would inevitably occur if he opened his easily irritated mouth. He knew he wasn't feeling his best and he was going to keep that his business and no one else's.

Simply sitting roughly near Coriander he just sat there at the table, resting on his elbows on the desk. He was looking down at his fingers. He started to trace an imaginary circle with his index finger. Slowly the finger came around but the circle wasn't even roughly close to a proper circle. It had a point, something circles shouldn't have. He continued tracing circles on the desk in his mind, each one not quite what he wants. The image that was being spun in his brain started to take on closer resemblance to a drunken Spirograph more than anything else. He wasn't happy with it.

Coriander greeted Arthur with a nod and a small smile. Though they didn't know each other particularly well, they were comrades and she worked directly under him. She was glad to see everyone again, including him, even though he usually wasn't glad to see anyone. Cori silently watched Arthur draw imaginary circles on the desk, getting noticeably more irritated than he already was. She sometimes wondered what could be going on in Arthur's head, but she knew it was probably better that she didn't know. After all, there was enough strangeness going on in her own.

Achillea began to pace the room. The Vice President and the Head of Assault were late, as usual. "Where the hell are Callum and Yuki?" she demanded. She was getting a bit impatient. Not only was this the first meeting of the year, but there were a lot of majorly important issues to discuss. Of all times to be late- twenty minutes late, even- this was a pretty poor one. But, of course, there was no way they could know that right now. The information she had to share was top secret. Ninja business only. Once those two arrived, the council would have to be moved to the clubhouse.

His smile grew kinder, chuckling at the show of respect from the girl he's learned to know as Kira Hall. He would try to remember that, but with the amount of new faces and names that came along with it, Gin was almost 100% positive he was going to forget one or two. "No need to bow to me. Everything is casual between us- Sort of." A light pause. "Always to see there are new people joining." Gin paused again when a soft growl was heard, raising an eyebrow. He eyed the source until the question of how he could see was heard, shrugging more so in an uncaring matter than an unknowing one as he took a seat on a nearby table. Arms crossed when the door slammed shut after his leave. Gin didn't find it smart to leave when the meeting could begin any minute, but his patience for arrogance was non-existent.

Eyes closed to relax, only opening one eye when the sound of an opening door was heard. Two more new faces for him; and of course, they came with a name. One who Gin had heard about, and the other Tokiji. Glancing over at Achillea, he wondered how concerned she was about everything. "There seems to be rather colorful people here this year. Wouldn't you say so?" Gin let out a soft yawn, muffled by his hand placed over his mouth. "Honestly, I didn't expect anyone to be later than me. What a surprise. I didn't really take Meier and Take for ones who liked being fashionably late."
