Bio: Mizu grew up in a great home. Sure, her dad died when she was younger, but that didn't bring her mother down. Her mother was always cheerful, and helped her grow up. Mizu was a sweet young girl, just like her mother was. Her and her mother got along great, despite the age difference. Mizu was bullied a lot in school, and never really fit in. One day, when she was 9 years old, the mean kids at school said that they wanted to play with her. She was so happy, and her mother was proud that she'd made some friends for a change. They walked down a path through the forest and arrived at a mysterious looking tunnel of some sort. The kids knew about the legends that were told there, but Mizu had no idea. They made her go through the tunnel and when she arrived on the other side, it looked so beautiful. That was all she could think about at the time. Never think negatively, no matter what situation you are in. Well, that's what her mother taught her at least. So, she enjoyed the beautiful weather, and walked towards a fair of some sort. Mizu walked around for a bit, and got lost. She couldn't find her way back to the tunnel, and was so scared. When night came, she couldn't do anything, because it was dark and strange things were wandering around. When she was discovered and taken in, she seemed to have an obsession with water therefore, she seemed perfect to be a water spirit. She was forced to sign a contract, and was given a new name. Mizu. Over time, that young child forgot her name, her memories and became the water spirit.
Other:
~She sneaks outside once in a while, and does water dancing.
Relationships: "I have no one."
Character Thoughts Towards Others:
Sumiko Byakko ~
Yamato the Wolf Spirit ~ "His drinking abilities are fascinating. But he's so lazy...
Mami the Headmistress ~ "She's kind of a bitch... But I can put up with her."
Momo Saeki Izumo ~ "She's always so happy. Her eyes make her look like a Youkai."
Arata Barret ~
Aimi Hikaru Riuzumi ~
Kaikamai the One Eyed Kitsune ~ "He's such an ass. At least I can relate to him.

Mizu woke up, and noticed a bunch of workers rushing around. She just wanted to cover her face with the pillow she had her head resting on, but got up anyways. She calmly got her things together, while everyone else was rushing around. Mizu put the proper work clothing on, and began walking downstairs, as she was tying her hair up.

Mizu got down to the bath house, and group of girls ran up to her, pleading for help.

Mizu, we need you over in that stall!


None of the workers ever called her, 'Water Spirit' or 'Water Spirit Mizu'. However, Mizu didn't care. She didn't care about these workers or anyone else in this wretched place. She just exhaled, and walked over towards the the stall. The water wasn't coming out of the pipe, for some strange reason and the pipe looked like it was about to blow off. If that happened, then the water that wasn't coming through, would spray everywhere, and most likely flood the place in seconds. Mizu made a clicking sound with her tongue and rolled her eyes. These fools obviously don't know what would've happened if they let that thing blow off. She rolled her sleeves up, and pulled up the bottom of her long kimono. She stood on the edge of the bath, and looked at the customer. "Get out." She stated clearly, without the sugar coating. The customer ran into the hallway, and watched from a safe enough distance. Mizu smirked to herself, and held her hands high in the air, just under the large tap. She closed her eyes for a few moments, and shot her arms down quickly, sending a heavy flow of water down, going over the bath. She stood on the water and jumped on the tap, and made sure all the unnecessary water would fly straight down the drain.

Mizu walked away from the group of her fellow bath house workers, and the awed customer and simply said, "You're welcome." The bath was now filled just enough to satisfy any customer and it was at a perfect temperature. Mizu smirked to herself, with her back turned to the group. I love making it look easy. Mizu was nearing a stall, where some of the workers didn't even bother to help out in. It must be that human... Mizu shoved some of the workers out of the way. "You people make me sick." She shot one last glare at the bunch before walking in, and offering a hand to her and the tiger spirit. "Do you ladies need some help?"

Mami


"I have good news and bad news ma'am."

Mami heard a voice from behind her say, most likely on the balcony, but she knew each one of her workers since she studied the way they acted very closely. She didn't have to turn around to know that the person speaking was Raphael, one of the people she did have high expectations about, but was at least glad he kept up unlike most Youkai that lived under her roof.

"Go on then." She said, filling out more paper work for the bathhouse and setting the first paper to the side. She always had a lot of paperwork to fill out, but she had amazing skills after working there so long, so she went through it all fast, seeing how the next second she had already gotten three more sheets filled out and read.

"Loki so far has behaved.... However a commotion below distracted me...and he disappeared on me."

Now usually, Mami would probably toss something at the spirit who would have failed to hold up her expectations, but she knew that this spirit often did so, so she simply said in her regular, bored sounding tone, "Well go find him." She put down the pen and turned her chair around to face him, and then glanced outside, "If you can do that and come back, you'll be fine. But I don't want that idiot brother of yours causing trouble. I hear rumors about humans crossing as well, after all these years... Is this true?"

Izumo


"Izumo-san, would you like help?"

"E-eh?" Izumo looked up from inside the bath and saw someone looking down on her, and apparently offering to help, "W-would you?" The young woman asked, "I'd be very grateful... although you may spread rumors about being near a human. I wouldn't want to damage your reputation..."

Izumo did want some help, but she didn't want to cause someone else damage, whether it be physical or mental, or just something like reputation. She was far too kind for that, especially after knowing the spirits at the bathhouse weren't all very mean and angry like the ones who were laughing at her, who also backed off after seeing Sumiko's threat. But it wasn't only Sumiko's threat that scared them off; another person shoved them aside which was the water spirit Mizu, "Do you ladies need some help?"

"If you're alright with helping though." Izumo tried her best to put on a smile, "Helping a human, or even being near a human isn't much of a simple matter really... You know how we're shunned for being another inferior race. That might make you have people like them," She referred to the spirits who were teasing her, "doing the same thing to you one day."

Arata


Arata saw that a group of Youkai were coming very close, and he couldn't back out anymore into the shadows without running past them, which would only cause more commotions, before someone came in front of him, blocking him out of the picture and glared at the other spirits as they moved away.

"...We need to get moving.. Come on...Trust me."

"H-huh? Wait, who the hell are you-" Arata cut himself off when the girl grabbed his hand and began to walk off. He probably would have planted his feet into the around, and stopped her and him from moving, but for some reason, he had a feeling she was going to help in, in some strange way, and followed, but slightly reluctantly.

"Did you come with anyone else, or did you see anyone else human?"

"S-someone else?" He asked, and tried to think before thinking he may have seen someone else, "Maybe... I can't recall very well though... Its the middle of the night, what would you expect? I can't recognize what's human, and what's... What's something like them..." He said, seeming to be glaring at the Youkai that didn't realize his presence.

Again, while walking behind her, he asked, in a lower voice, "Who are you, where am I, what are those things, and where the hell are we going?"

Yamato


Yamato walked around, the smoking pipe in his mouth before letting out another puff of smoke from his mouth as it rose into the night sky. He stopped when he noticed a very, very small change in his altitude, since he was aware of everything, and anything. When he lifted his foot, he noticed what appeared to be a mold of a shoe in the dust, and this wasn't a sandal like most the spirits wore, if they wore any shoes.

He looked up, and traced the footsteps until he reached another area were there wasn't only one trail of footsteps, but two more, and one he recognized, "Ah... Yomi's helping out the humans then hmm... Well... I suppose it wouldn't be bad to allow them to get away... And while she's leading one, another one's following in their footsteps hmm... Interesting. I think I'll let this one slide. I didn't see anything here." Yamato chuckled and walked away as if he saw nothing.

Sumiko


"W-would you?" Izumo asked, "I'd be very grateful... although you may spread rumors about being near a human. I wouldn't want to damage your reputation..."

A small smile couldn't help but play on the albino's facial features. Despite wanting help, Izumo still looked out for her, and that was something Sumiko was grateful for. "Rumors are simply a false way to pass judgment onto others... As for my reputation, I can't say I really cared for that either. I'll gladly help." Sumiko said with her mind made up, despite how others would treat Izumo, she wasn't going to treat her with any disrespect.

Looking over towards the water spirit Mizu, her smile widened, "Do you ladies need some help?" At least there were a few good Youkai in the bathhouse. Sumiko just nodded towards the water spirit as Izumo spoke. Yes, Sumiko knew that the humans are considered a rather inferior race, but to be honest, she just was never bothered by it. They were breathing just like everything and one else. Despite if they made fun of them, or even Mizu and Sumiko for helping one, the tiger spirit knew that wouldn't stop them from helping.

"Izumo, even if you are a human, that doesn't mean you should be treated with any less respect then the rest of us." With that firmly stated, she began to shorten her own kimono, her ears popping up and by the way they looked, Sumiko was clearly excited. "I think we may even get a few more human workers to join us. I smelt them not to long ago outside. I can just tell the bathhouse is going to get a lot more exciting from here on out!" A childish glint shined like a gem in her sky blue eyes as she hopped into the tub with the young female human after getting a sponge from another worker.

Mizu raised an eyebrow at Izumo and looked back at the staring workers. "Whatever..." She mumbled to herself quietly. "I don't like anybody here, so I don't care what they say about me." Mizu smiled sweetly.

Izumo, even if you are a human, that doesn't mean you should be treated with any less respect then the rest of us.


Mizu nodded. "She does have a point. I was human once." Mizu stated, silently and did the same as Sumiko, sliding her kimono up. She walked towards the cleaning supplies and hopped into the tub.

I think we may even get a few more human workers to join us. I smelt them not to long ago outside. I can just tell the bathhouse is going to get a lot more exciting from here on out!
\

More... Humans? Mizu was lost in her own thoughts. She hadn't seen many humans, ever. Well, except for Izumo and Akihiko. Mizu's normal dark purple hair color, changed into black, because of the mysterious feelings she was feeling. Sometimes it was confsued for dark or evil thoughts, because black also represents those things. However, Mizu is often misunderstood about a lot of things. Mizu was just doing her own thing, cleaning up and thinking about the humans that were to come.

Mami


"Thank you very much ma'am. I'm sorry that my brother causes so much trouble."

"Tch. Just don't fail me, and you'll be forgiven." She said, though her language towards him was much more gentle towards him compared to other Youkai. Mostly it was because he never failed to finish a job perfectly as she expects it to be, 'If only more people were as responsible as him... And not like that no for good brother of his. She sighed and looked down at the paperwork on her desk again, but just tossed it to the side, literally, and stood up from her chair, "Those idiots downstairs must be messing something up again."

She said this because she heard a lot of commotion outside her window in her working room and glanced down. Apparently people were leaving the bridge that no one could cross unrecognized, and were swarming around something else that caught their interest, 'The human perhaps...?' Mami sighed tiredly and leaned back into her chair, "I'll let Raphael handle it, and Yamato if that stupid wolf still knows his job after all these damn years."




Izumo


"Izumo, even if you are a human, that doesn't mean you should be treated with any less respect then the rest of us."

Izumo let a gentle smile pass her face before she said to Sumiko, "Thank you dear... Really, you're too kind. But I am a completely different type of race, and person from most of the Youkai here. Poverty is actually quite normal, I just wish it didn't happen so often, but I suppose I could get used to it! Kind people like you two help a lot of humans carry on underneath this roof you know."

"She does have a point. I was human once."

"Hmm? You too?" Izumo wondered, but then felt a little bad for Mizu, wondering how hard it must have been for her as a human back then. A while back, humans got treated even worse since not that many worked for Mami, and things were probably much more strict for them while now, humans got a little more respect. She wanted to ask how it was like, but didn't want to sound imposing, so she kept silent about it.

"I think we may even get a few more human workers to join us. I smelt them not to long ago outside. I can just tell the bathhouse is going to get a lot more exciting from here on out!"

"H-Huh? More humans?" Izumo exclaimed with amazement. She was waiting to find another human because of how lonely it was, despite how kind a mere few Youkai were to her, "D-do you know where they are? If they're on their way here?" She was a little too excited that she slipped in the water that covered up to their knees inside the dirty bath, a bunch of Youkai just outside the room laughing quietly, even with the threatening looks they got from the other two girls a moment ago.




Yamato


Yamato, a moment later, was on top of the second floor's roof of the bathhouse, being able to see everything in their small town, the ferry crossing the water that once was a field during the day, the people gathering around the center of the town after hearing about the news of new humans, and the other few Youkai he personally knew who were trying to figure out what to do with the two.

He took a deep breath of fresh air instead of through his smoking pipe, and looked up at the sky, thinking to himself, 'That girl... Yomi owes me something for letting them pass. If I didn't, they'd all lose their heads along with her being fired, and perhaps others if they were seen in the process of helping the humans. I'd better get something good like a new bottle of sake or another smoking pipe... This one's getting quite old...' He sighed.




Arata


"..My name is..Yomi."

Arata heard her answer hesitantly, 'Is saying your name hard to do? Sure, I'm a strange, but she's the one who grabbed me first.' Arata thought to himself, probably sounding very rude if he were to say his thoughts out loud, but instead, decided to say what he would always say to a normal stranger, despite his current situation being a little... different than usual, "Well then, nice to meet you, Ms. Yomi."


Your in an area where wondering spirits, and youkai come to bath, and replenish..- and Im taking you to the safiest place you can possiable be. So you must listen to me."

"S-spirits? Youkai?" Arata laughed, thinking it was a joke, though, it was a very anxious and nervous laugh, "H-Ha... O-oi, stop kidding around... The costumes are cool and all... but going this far to scare tourists is a little too much, w-wouldn't you say? And isn't everywhere safe? Isn't that right?" He asked, but he already knew the answer to that from what the Yomi told him.

Go with him alright? I'll be back."

"H-Hey!" Arata said, feeling a little more comfortable with someone he knew, even though it was a very, very short introduction, than with another stranger. But before he could tell her anything else, she was already gone. He turned to the young man in front of him and sighed, "Then... I guess I'm following you, am I right? Come on kid." He grabbed the other human's arm and began to follow, still keeping and eye out for the so called Youaki and Spirits.

Sumiko


"D-do you know where they are? If they're on their way here?"

Sumiko chuckled lightly, and she couldn't help but laugh a bit louder when Izumo got a bit too excited. "Calm down Izumo-san. I believe they are. I couldn't smell them for long, the scents crossed and it was just a mess of smells." Sumiko explained, holding out a hand Izumo up.

"Ick..." Sumiko covered her nose, smells unfamiliar seemingly getting stronger then before the albino a strong headache. "What the hell..." Sumiko grumbled, looking around before shrugging it off. "Alright girls, let's get this bath done! Then we can go see if we can find those humans before they get into trouble." After helping Izumo up, it was almost like Sumiko was on auto drive.
