|Personality|
Masumi is a very artsy girl. Not only with her art work, but with her. Many have considered her to be a colorful gal. She is very creative with her actions. Always thinking outside of the box. She has a way of letting everyone know that she had a hand in something without even saying anything. Whether it be a signature or some arrangement of colors or objects. Sumi always has to do something special with everything she does. There is never just doing it one way. There are many different ways it should be done and Masumi will try all of them if possibly.

She is very bold and doesn't like to hide in the shadows. Masumi is far from cocky and will never claim to be better than anyone. She knows that everyone is talented in their own way. But Miss Kata will not let her work get overlooked. She finds ways to stand out during competitions. Not only is she bold behind the camera, but when interacting with people. She is rather witty and quick to use sarcasm as a form of communication. She has never been afraid to say what is on her mind. Unfortunately, her blunt and sarcasm tend to come off as rude when really Masumi is just against lying and beating around the bush.

First meeting Masumi, many assume that she is very friendly and quite the pushover. She is always smiling and just staying in the background to take pictures. But everyone generally tries to stay on her good side. She got her temper from her parents and can easily be unleashed. Sumi doesn't let anyone walk over her and she will not let anyone just treat her any kind of way. She has done a lot to keep her temper under control. It takes a bit more to tick her off than it has in the past, but when angered she is still a force to be reckoned with. There is nothing worse than being on the receiving end of Masumi's wrath. She knows and sees all. Evidence is always on her camera and saved ot the cloud. Her witty tongue because harsh and meant to sting.

Not everyone knows this, but Masumi is a romantic. She has a firm belief in love and falling in love. Sumi also believes that the heart wants what it wants. She has never been one to fall for gender, though she does find certain people attractive. Its personalities and shared values that cause Sumi to fall in love. She wants to meet the person that understands her and wants to be with her, flaws and all. She adores the princess weddings and the exchanging of rings. She isn't afraid of forever.

|Place of Origin|
Nagoya, Japan

|History|
Masumi Mae Kata was born in Nagoya, Japan. Her mother was full Japanese while her father was half black. She did not exactly fit the Japanese standards of beauty, but she never let that get in her way. Her parents were very well respected and made enough money to raise their only daughter. They raised her to have good morals and values. Masumi adored her parents and always wanted to make them proud and keep the family honor in tack. And she did just that. She brought home outstanding grades and excelled in all of the extracurricular actives that she had signed up for. From a young age, her parents have been pushing the idea of becoming a doctor in order to bring more honor to the family. Though she agreed to the idea, Masumi never wanted that for herself.

At a young age, she discovered photography and fell in love. She loved the ability to capture a moment and how she could relive that moment whenever she looks at the picture. Even more so, she loved the complexity of the cameras. Sumi could alter her reality to make it what she wanted with just the push of several buttons. Something about that power just made her want to become a photographer. Masumi never told her parents and she feels awful for it. She absolutely despises lying, but its the only way that she could get what she wants.

She did a lot of research on a school that would help her achieve her dream of traveling the world and taking photos. And one found her. The New York Academy for the Arts. She would have to go to America to become the photographer she wants to be be. Immediately she started learning English and trying to come up with a legit reason to fly across the world. She eventually just came up with the idea that she was going to a medical school in America. She said is the was the top school and they gave her a scholarship. Sumi got a friend of hers to fake the papers and everything. Before she knew it, she was reading a book on English grammar on a plane.

Though she is lying to her parents, she has no regrets. The school is amazing and she is learning so much. Once she graduates and becomes a famous photographer, she will explain to her parents why she had to lie and how art doesn't bring shame to their family. But for now, she was on her own and couldn't reveal her secret to anyone.

So begins...

She sat down upon the steps that were located within the heart of Time Squares with a smile. She had finally made it to the city that she has always dreamed of being in, which was New York City. She looked at all the people that had past by and gathered up all around her as she couldn't believe how busy the streets were early this morning. Stacey finished her breakfast and placed it back in the bag, balling it up as she grabbed her coffee.

As she walked down the stairs, she tossed the bag in the trash can but missed along a gentleman picked it up for her. She thanked him with a smile while she sipped on her coffee and walked away. The campus of the academy wasn't too far from the square as that was what she loved the most about it. When she needed to get away, that was one place you'll be able to find her.

While walking back into the lobby of her dorm building, she saw a few of the other girls have already settled in. Yesterday was their first day back as they had orientation and got to know where their classes were. The male dorm was within walking distance across from the female's dorm but they couldn't be in each other's dormitory area after ten o'clock. Stacey's roommate was Masumi and luckily enough, they had a co-joined room with her sister, Zoey and her roommate, Ireland.

She adored both girls and her sister and was extremely happy that they were sharing rooms together. She walked into the dorm room with her coffee in hand, hoping that all the girls were up. "Alright, ladies. Let's get up because you know that today is one of the showcases and I am performing today so I definitely cannot be late." She mentioned with an arrogant smile while she scrambled to get a few necessities and waited for everyone else to get ready. "Oh and are the boys meeting us there or are we going over to get them?" She asked as someone just had to know something about because obviously, she didn't.

Ireland Wilson
Hex: #004080
─────────────────────────────────────
Ireland strolled down the street, the latest copy of the New York Times rolled in one hand, a latte in the other. She liked to joke that Starbucks was her religion, and her morning coffee run was quite a religious routine for her. Her friends wouldn't be surprised as they watched her sashay onto campus with her coffee. The girl sipped carefully from her coffee as she crossed the campus towards the door building, trying her best to not spill. She'd had her fair share of slips and spills and she was determined not to make a mess of herself today.

Entering the lobby of the dorm building, she made her way to her room. Her roommate, Zoey, was a likeable girl. She was lucky not to have an awful roommate, and she genuinely enjoyed spending time with the girl. Their room was a co-joined room shared with Zoey's sister, Stacey, and her roommate Masumi. Every day was a party with those girls in tow.

Ireland shrugged off her jacket and hung it up just as Stacey entered the room. Ireland smirked at the girl's coffee, a shared loved between the two. "Alright, ladies. Let's get up because you know that today is one of the showcases and I am performing today so I definitely cannot be late." she said. Ireland rolled her eyes. Typical Stacey. "Yeah, yeah..." Ireland mumbled, sinking into her bed. She'd stay there until Zoey and Masumi were up and running. "Oh and are the boys meeting us there or are we going over to get them?" Stacey asked. Ireland glanced at the girl and shrugged absently. "Why don't you give one of them a call?" Ireland asked, sipping her coffee casually.

Elijah Walker
Hex: #800000
─────────────────────────────────────
Elijah tossed over in his bed, rubbing the sleep from his eyes and letting out a rather loud yawn. "It's already morning? I don't know about you but I was having a pretty exciting dream about one of my lady friends back in Vancouver and let me just say that it is extremely disappointing that such a wonderful dream has been cut short by the arrival of a day such as today." Elijah rambled loudly, his hands covering his eyes as they were still adjusting to the morning light. He let a small grin creep across his face. He loved to be dramatic and what better way to wake up than to exercise his talents?

Elijah sat up in his bed, stretching his arms out and yawning yet again. "Better make some coffee." he said to himself, walking over to the coffee maker that laid on the counter near the door. Elijah believed the key to starting a day off right was in consuming at least one cup of coffee before 8 am. He hoisted himself onto the counter and sat patiently as he waited for the coffee to brew. He noticed his roommate Ricky still laying in bed. Elijah glanced to his left and spotted a pack of plastic utensils. Without a second thought, he shrugged and flung it at his roommate. "Wake up!"he laughed. "We've got places to go and girls to meet."he continued.

Kendrick was lost in his own world, a world filled of sleep and at this moment, there was probably nothing that would be able to wake him. Though that was at least until a certain roommate tossed a plastic fork at him and shouted in his direction for him to wake up. The male sighed and rubbed his eyes before slowly sitting up in the bed. Kendrick glanced over at his alarm clock, seeing that it hadn't gone off that morning for him to do his daily run. "Guess I'll go for my run after Stacey's showcase," he spoke aloud to himself as he climbed out of bed and stepped into the kitchen and started making his morning smoothie.

"Have you heard anything about any plays that would need any backup dancers in the drama department?" Kendrick questioned. Although Kendrick was never all that interested in the drama department, he did enjoy the dancing and even if it were to be in some sort of musical or something, then he'd deal with it. After all, if he wanted to become a professional dancer he needed to get some experience in all kinds of dancing. Even if it meant performing in some dumb musical. Of course he would never judge any of his friends, such as Elijah for his passions because that would be wrong but he could have an opinion, right?

Kendrick finished blending his smoothie and poured it into a cup before taking a few sips from it. "Any idea what time this thing starts?" he questioned as he leaned against the wall, taking in the surroundings of his messy dorm room. Something needs to be done with this room, he thought to himself before walking across the room towards his dresser. He pulled out a black button down and a nice pair of jeans before pulling them over his body. The male reached for his hat and placed it on his head, put on some axe body spray, slid his shoes on and reached for his wallet before heading out the door. "I'm dropping by to see the girls. If you don't stop by I'll give you the rest of the details once I figure them out and we can meet up at the showcase. Later man," he stated and closed their door behind him.

Kendrick walked across campus to the dormitory sitting across the lawn from his and stepped into the building's front doors and walked through the hallways towards the dorm that held his four favorite girls at the academy. The male came to a halt in front of their door and he knocked, "Girls, it's Kendrick.

Masumi had been up really late last night. The other day was orientation day and she had to take pictures of everything as well as participate. The school liked to use Sumi's pictures on their website, newspapers, journals, etc so they are always asking her to take pictures of any of the events she could attend. A lot of the time that meant she got a free pass into whatever event in was that she taking pictures. And a majority of the time that also meant late nights editing. The school wanted the orientation pictures ASAP. Sumi went through three hundred plus photos and deleted a little less than half of them. The ones she kept, she extensively edited them so that the colors were more vibrant and that anything that had the words New York Academy for the Arts was emphasized. By the time she had finished that, it was close to two in the morning.

When morning came, Masumi was unmoving. Luckily her roommate, Zoey, was also not a morning person. Sumi doesn't know what she would do if Zoey was prancing about the moment the sun came up. A pillow would most likely connect with her body if Sumi thought that she wasn't going to stop prancing. But the roommates were both asleep and unmoving. There was peace and tranquility. Being able to sleep was such a blessing. "Alright, ladies. Let's get up because you know that today is one of the showcases and I am performing today so I definitely cannot be late." Having it ruined by Stacey was a curse. Stacey and Ireland are in the co joined room. It was a lucky pairing. But not right now. Sumi rolled over and pulled the blanket over her head. There was some silence in her dorm before Zoey got up and started getting ready. Masumi sighed and pushed herself into the sitting position. She waited patiently for Zoey to exit the bathroom. When she did, Masumi dragged herself in to start getting ready.

Bathroom routine done, Masumi looked over her closet and drawers for something to wear. It didn't have to be flashy, since she was going to be taking pictures the whole time. She slid on the matching bra and underwear set before ditching the towel. Sumi had no problem with anyone catching her half naked. She was comfortable like this and holding a towel made it hard to pick out clothes. Finally she picked out a pair of denim shorts and slid on an Adidas hoodie, not bothering with a tank top. Walking over to her night stand, she took hold of her iPhone SE to check for messages. There was nothing important from anyone so she just slid it into her pocket. Opening the drawer, she pulled out the camera bag to check the battery on her Nikon D5 CF. It still held a lot of battery. Sumi checked the attachments, leaving one of them in the drawer. She double checked to make sure that she had everything before venturing out to where the other girls were. "So Sis, we are going to have a party to celebrate your showcase win, right? Because well, honestly I just want to get drunk tonight and it would help if I had a reason to celebrate," Masumi giggled a little and found a place to sit. Leave it to Zoey to need a reason for alcohol.

There was a knock on the door followed by Kendrick's introduction. "I got it." She stood up and went to open up the door. "Morning." Sumi said with a smile before moving out of the way and letting him in. She shut the door and went to reclaim her seat. Then she decided to mess around with her camera settings to make sure everything was in order. Sumi pulled out the camera and started taking non flash pictures of her friends.

Stacey looked at Ireland as she wasn't very excited to hear about the showcase, it seemed. She sat down with the roll of her eyes then looked at Ireland again, mimicking her words. As she searched for one of the guys numbers in her phone. She looked up at her sister, Zoey as she smiled towards her. "Great." She gave a thumbs up to no one in particular then looked again as her sister entered the room, dressed a little bit than before.

"I'd love to party to celebrate my win but if you're going to get drunk then maybe you should sit out tonight." She said bluntly as she didn't really want to get into an argument with her sister early this morning. She jumped slightly as a knock came over their dorm as she saw Masumi was up and going towards it. It was Kendrick. Stacey practically jumped out of her seat and scurried over towards him, giving him a small hug as she smiled then broke the hug.

"Alright, losers." She teased towards everyone present as she gathered up her belongings then eyed everything. "Please do not be late. I will be watching." Stacey gave them an evil eye look with a smile though before she exited her dorm and the building, going over towards the area where the stage was being set up. While she waited for her turn to rehearse, she pulled out her phone and sent a text to Kyle and Elijah in a group message.

To: Eli and Ky
Both of you guys better not be late today. >:D


She sent the message then went up stage so that she can rehearse her song. She rehearsed and rehearsed again then turned towards the people that were going to make her performance better as she thanked them again. Now all she had to do was wait until the showcase began so that she could wow the audience that was slowly starting to form.

Kendrick smiled when he noticed Sumi answer the door. He glanced at the tanned brunette up and down a bit, just as usual with a slight smirk. "Looking good Sumi, like always," the male stated as he stepped into the room and greeted the other girls. Kendrick always deemed himself as lucky because he was always around the hottest girls in school. Even though he didn't exactly get along with all of them all the time, he was still a bit shocked that the lot of them haven't tried pushing him away. Though Zoey on the other hand, she was always the more difficult out of the bunch. She liked having Kendrick and the others around, but she also seemed to try pushing each and every one of them out of her life.

Kendrick chuckled a bit when he heard Stacey's words and decided to follow the blonde out the dorm room just a couple moments later. As he did he dragged Zoey along with him.

Zoey rolled her eyes as she was pulled from the couch by Kendrick and followed him out the door. "Was it necessary to drag me?" the blonde stated sarcastically. Of course she knew Kendrick was going to say it was, he always did. That was just how he was. Just as she knew, the male nodded his head before saying, "Are you seriously going to party hard tonight? You need to chill a bit with the drinking, you know it's not good for you," he stated, knowing this was most likely going to end up turning into an argument.

"What is it with you and Stacey trying to control the way I drink. There is nothing wrong with it and I'm always safe, I take care of myself," the blonde responded as she walked away from the male with a huff. She couldn't believe he brought this up this early in the morning. She was in no mood to argue with him or his sister. This was going to be a great day and there was nothing that was going to get in the way of that if it were up to her.

Once she arrived at the showcase she spotted Kyle and she ran over to him, wrapping her arms around his waist. "Hello, hello," she stated with a soft chuckle before releasing him. "Good luck going up against Stacey. I've heard her rehearsing all night and she killed it. Though, I'm sure you've got something up your sleeve," Zoey stated to the silver haired male before her.

Kyle had always been one of her favorite people at the academy. He was never on her about the way she lived her life like her twin and Kendrick were, he was always there when she needed someone to lean on and he never judged her. Zoey just wished she had more people like him in her life. But of course that wasn't going to be very easy.

Kyle seemed to have gotten there before the famous Stacey herself. He took the opportunity to rehearse with all the equipment. He managed to get through it twice and he was more than confident than his performance. There was still some time to kill before there was a dire need to be ready on stage. Venturing out of the area, he went to the cafe close to the school. Kyle would need food or he would not be able to function. While standing in line he received a message. It was a group chat, Stacey seemed to have started. He rolled his eyes playfully before another message came up from Elijah. That message caused him to laugh. His friends were both quiet interesting creatures. Kyle sent a quick reply.
;Stacey, Elijah
No need to flatter me Eli. And I physically cannot be late or they won't let me perform.
Message sent and he ordered himself a chocolate chip muffin. It was handed to him right away and he paid for it. With headphones in, he headed back to the stage area. He came just in time to see Stacey rehearsing. She was amazing. Everyone knew that of course. There was some kind of strange honor with being able to perform on stage with her. This was one of the few times there were going to be performing on the same stage. Kyle took a bite of his muffin and thought about going to wish her luck, until he felt someone wrapping their arms around his waist. Turning around, he smiled at his best friend Zoey. "Hey wow. You are early." He teased. He could only assume that he was early due to her sister being in the showcase.

"Good luck going up against Stacey. I've heard her rehearsing all night and she killed it. Though, I'm sure you've got something up your sleeve" Kyle chuckled a bit and offered up some of his muffin to her. "I'm trying not to see this as a competition. I'm just gonna do my best. But...I secretly hope I do way better." Kyle smiled and ate some more of his muffin. "I'm expecting you in the front row acting as my cheerleader, Zo." He added almost as a stern warning. Though he was only joking of course.

Sumi smile at Kendrick as she let him in. "Thanks Ricky" She said as she continued messing with the camera settings. It was always important to have the settings ready before it was time to take the real pictures. She was only half listening to what was going on. Stacey was scolding Zoey on her alcohol consumption as usual. Then she pretty much warned the group to not be late before skipping away, blonde hair flowing in the wind. Masumi shook her head in amusement. Everyone that has ever been friends with Stacey knew better than to even try to be a second late. Sumi was going to on time because she had a job. Taking pictures o f the showcase. She wasn't even going to have a seat. She would be wondering backstage and then front stage taking pictures of everyone and everything. Right after Stacey left, Kendrick and Zoey followed, leaving Masumi and Ireland. A sigh escaped her. "No no. Go ahead. We'll catch up." she said jokingly. Turning to her friend Ireland, she snapped a candid picture of her to make sure the picture came out nice. It did. Sumi placed the camera in the bag and then stood up. "Come on. We need good seats." She waited for Ireland before leaving.

It didn't take long to get to campus and head to where all the performers were gathering. It seemed that Stacey had just finished rehearsing. Elijah was up there talking to her. Kyle was on the main floor talking with Zoey. Pulling her camera back out, it was time to take photos. "The last thing I wanna do is ditch you Irie, but duty calls." Reluctantly, she left her friend and started taking pictures of everything going on.

Ireland was delighted when Zoey mentioned celebrating. She nodded eagerly in agreement, badly in need of a drink."I've been sober too long so it's time to let loose." She said. Ireland's eyes flicked to the door, where Masumi answered the door and greeted Kendrick. Ireland nodded in acknowledgement. "Morning Ricky" she said, flashing a small smile.

Ireland whipped out her phone, checking her notifications while slowly her friends left one by one."I'll see you guys in a bit!" she called out after Kendrick and Zoey. Once they were gone, Ireland spent a few minutes to herself sipping her coffee and scrolling through her phone. Ten minutes passed before she decided she ought to leave. She quickly made her bed and grabbed her black leather backpack and headed out the door.

The air was much warmer now than it was earlier. She left her jacket unzipped and crossed the campus towards the performance building. She played her favourite Hozier tune as she walked, silently mouthing the lyrics to his song. It didn't take long before she arrived, spotting Elijah & Stacey and Kyle & Zoey having their own respective conversations while Masumi walked around taking photos. "You know, if you really want to photograph something interesting, I'm right here!" she laughed, glancing at her friend and striking a playful pose."I don't know why you'd waste all your time waiting to come across something relatively appealing when I'm here." she smirked.

Kyle continued to eat his muffin after Zoey said that she didn't want any. It wasn't an insult for her when she said no. It just meant more muffin for him. Besides he would need his energy to be able to go up there and perform in front of everyone. He took note of all the people filing into the building. For their first showcase this was a great turn out. Some people usually never turn up to the first one. Either they don't think its going to be good or not everyone is moved in. But so many people were coming. This was great. The school might actually go to nationals. Kyle wouldn't know what to do if he was one of the chosen to represent the school there. It would be the greatest way to get his name out there.

His attention was brought back to Zoey when she mentioned a party. Leave it to Zo to plan the first party for the school to be right after the showcase. She was notorious for her parties if nothing else. The whole school might have already heard about it. "Of course I have time." Kyle said after he finished his muffin. He tossed the empty wrapper into the nearby trash can. "Well unless screaming fans keep me from going by begging for autographs and pictures." He added teasingly. Even if that were to happen, he would still make sure that he made it to the party. Kyle loved having a good time and there was nothing better than one of Zoey's party. It was time to head backstage. "Gotta go Zo. See you later." Kyle gave a two finger salute and went to head backstage with the rest of the performers.

Masumi laughed at her friend when she started posing. She started taking pictures of Ireland and her various poses. She was so silly and always did stuff like this. The amount of pictures Masumi had of Ireland was just too high to count. At one point, Sumi's camera was clouded with so many pictures of her that she had to download them onto a separate computer file. It was a lot of work especially because Masumi had a habit of going through her picture files to edit and trash them. She had to convince herself to stop doing that with her friends photos. It took up way too much time. "I don't know why you'd waste all your time waiting to come across something relatively appealing when I'm here." The comment made Masumi laugh.

"I'm not taking pictures for fun." She corrected, putting her camera down. "I'm working." Masumi had to take pictures for the school so that they could put them on the website and online scrapbook. The photography major here wasn't that vast. More people came here for singing, dancing, and acting. Art was one of the smaller things people wanted to get famous for. So she was one of the few people that took pictures well enough to be considered professional. Sumi really wishes to be professional photographer and be requested to take photos for famous people and for famous magazines. More people started to file into the arena. Performers were starting to head backstage. "Can't chat. Have to take pictures backstage. Save me a seat for when I'm done." She said before skipping away to head backstage.
