┍━━━━━━━━X LOVEX ━━━━━━━━┑

Being raised with three older brothers and an unfortunate lack of sisters to protect her, Pearl is accustomed to quite a bit of tussle. Wrestling, she does lightheartedly and yet, beware of her nasty choke hold. On the other hand, competitive hand-to-hand sparring is a favorite pastime of Pearl's, for it allow her to explore her own skills, as well as the skills of others, in a more serious manner. Pearl's combat style is heavily influenced by her gymnastics training; she relies on a great deal of flexibility and evasion, but pin points the weak areas of the body, such as the pressure points, and delivers heavy blows to them. Still, she may enjoy gymnastics as a sport on it's own even more. Although she prefers hand to hand combat, long range weaponry is a close second. When she's not doing any sort of training, you'll usually find Pearl napping in some public place or eating surprisingly large portions. No one ever expects the five foot two inch girl to be able to pack back two large pizzas on her own. Pearl has also taken to collecting postcards, no matter how ugly they may be. Among other things, she loves animated children's movies, singing, and table tennis.

┕━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━┙

┍━━━━━━━━X HATEX ━━━━━━━━┑

Perhaps it's a result of being the youngest of her family, along with being the only daughter, and therefore being rather spoiled, but Pearl does not like being bossed around. She can follow a degree of good leadership, but there comes a point where she will outright refuse to obey orders when pushed to her limits. Of course, this itty bitty Asian girl loves being able to prove others wrong, but she still hates being underestimated because of her small stature. There is a reason why Pearl was sorted into the combatant sector as she was. She isn't incompetent by any means, but she tends to avoid having to solve complex puzzles and don't even mention the word "math" around this pocket-sized teen. Pearl lived her life believing in an afterlife. Her brothers may have played a part in pulling a couple of pranks of poor Pearl as a child and it's left her weary of ghosts. She actively avoids cemeteries and watching horror movies. She doesn't like extremely formal occasions or having to play the piano- she was forced to take lessons as a child and resents it to this day.

QUIRKS & HABITS ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬
      ▰ She can turn any mundane item into a toy, as she's constantly fiddling with things like straws, coins, bottle caps, tissue paper, buttons- you name it! ▰ When she finds herself with spare time, such as waiting in lines, watching her food heat up in the microwave, or watching television, Pearl is always stretching. ▰Being a verbal quirk of hers, Pearl tends to pick up a stutter when she's excited. It's hard enough to understand those enthusiastic, spitfire words on their own. ▰No matter the level of familiarity, Pearl enjoys giving others a friendly punch on the shoulder. However, due to the fact that she doesn't understand her own strength, the friendly punches are near bruising.

STRENGTHS ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬
      Stealth ┆Any sort of spy movie has depicted the importance of such surreptitious, sly actions and Pearl just so happens to have a knack for the film cliche. She understands it's importance and the advantages of it when it comes to combat strategy.
      Hand to Hand Combat ┆Perhaps the most obvious strength of hers, seeing that she was placed in the Combat sector, Pearl is exceptionally talented at hand to hand combat. If you see her around, feel free to ask her for a good sparring session.
      Flexibility ┆Pearl is flexible in more ways than one; she is flexible both physically and mentally. Honestly, she shouldn't be able to contort her body the way she does, but it is pretty useful. Mentally, she's able to adjust her mind to fit into situations.
      Quick-Thinking ┆Her mental flexibility may be the reason why she has come to be such a quick thinker. When it comes to long term planning, Pearl definitely isn't the one to go to, but she's always coming up with on the spot plan b's.
      Deceptiveness ┆One wouldn't go as far to say that she's a master of theatrics, it's just that her innocent and youthful appearance has enable her to deceive those around her. Her talent of producing crocodile tears has been particularly useful in the past.

WEAKNESSES ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬
      Discipline ┆With this young lady discipline seems to go in one ear and out the other; she doesn't care much for being scolded. It's not a good trait to have on her part in learning situations.
      Technology ┆It's something that goes beyond it being one of her weakest majors and techies everywhere mourn the state of their technology after Pearl is through with it. Perhaps it should be listed as a talent of hers: being able to destruct technology at a simple touch.
      Laziness ┆When it comes down to it, Pearl can be just plain lazy. A lack of motivation and drive causes Pearl to just kick back and relax instead of tending to her responsibilities. If she doesn't want to do it, she just won't do it.
      Compulsiveness ┆Sure, her quick thinking can come in handy sometimes, but other times Pearl goes completely off the map with the original plans, much to the disdain of the masterminds.
      Etiquette and Culture ┆Overall, Pearl just doesn't fit into the "high-society" mould, nor is she interested in shaping herself to do so. She'll leave all of the fancy dining with the various forks and knives to the Covert Ops.

FEAR & DREAMS ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬
      Ghosts ┆As someone who is particularly frightened by bumps in the night, Pearl is absolutely terrified of ghosts. As silly as it may seem to many, Pearl believes that they exist.
      Olympian ┆Everyone agree's that the highest achievement when it comes to sports is the Olympics. Pearl has always dreamed of that gold medal.
      Drowning ┆Although she is an adequate swimmer, Pearl has had a fear of drowning ever since an incident that occured when she was a child.
      Family ┆A lesser known aspiration of hers: Pearl just really wants to have a family one day.

▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ TRAITS ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬
PLAYFUL ; PRIDEFUL ; LAZY ; LEISURELY
FEISTY ; FRIENDLY ; CURIOUS ; CONFIDENT

Characteristically, one would say that Pearl is quite comparable to a cat, the overlapping traits she shares with the animal ranging from the same languid disposition to a certain concealed feistiness. For example, upon first impression, Pearl's feline-esqe temperament is depicted through her balletic, yet entirely leisurely, movements. Pearl isn't so much for following a certain pace, but rather, she creates her own and marches to the beat of her own drum as she sees fit. She's not, by any means, one to stress over the discordant franticities and overly stressful responsibilities that tend to plague one's life, choosing instead to live lazily and therefore, happily. Though her laziness may not be the best of her traits, she feels contented by an easy-going mood. However, that's not to say that you'll always find Pearl kicking back, rocking in a hammock as she's sipping at a margarita.

Just as lazy as Pearl can be, she can match the temperament with equal fervor when it comes to her playfulness; it's a trait that most likely derived from her tendency to be rather curious and excitable. Sure, these two traits have landed her in hot water in the past, leading Pearl to be in places she wasn't meant to be or causing her to say the wrong things, but Pearl enjoys a little bit of adventure. She's somewhat reflective to discipline, so long as her curiosity is sated and her individuality and confidence leaves little to no room for regrets. While it's true that it can be rather difficult to hold Pearl's attention, due to her habit of dropping the things that don't keep her entertained like a hot potato, Pearl will throw her entire being into the things that charm and amuse her. Although, this extents more to her hobbies than than the people she meets, for she does happen to be rather friendly, but it does still apply. If one does manage to befriend Pearl, well, they're stuck with her. Once Pearl moves past her initial wishy-washy ways, she becomes quite attached to her friends and surprisingly values loyalty quite a bit.

It's a common mistake, forming a perception of her based on her babyish features and small stature. Pearl’s tendency to act rather childishly at times doesn’t exactly aid the notion that Pearl wouldn’t be as she seems, but the fact of the matter is that this deceptively cute young woman has alarming about of feistiness and grit in her little body. It's easy to forget that this pocket-sized teen could easily break bones when she gives her infamous puppy-eyes, but she really could if she wanted to. She has worked incredibly hard to fine tune her combat skills, taking adversity in stride and developing her abilities. She's even eminently proud of how far she's come. Though Pearl does carry a great deal of feistiness, this doesn't translate into her being particularly short tempted and Pearl doesn't feel the need to physically fight others out of anger. However, if one pushes her too far, beware the consequences.

      HISTORY ◥
    Thirty or so odd years ago, as the groovy, peace-loving era of the seventies evolved into the wild, neon-fanatic eighties, Xuan Tieu was, well, a bit of a loser. At the time the man didn't have much going for him; he wasn't particularly handsome, intelligent, or rich, nor did he have many skills and talents. Xuan had graduated from high school, but the continuation of his education into university was not in his repertoire. Instead, the young man from Vietnam tried his hand at business, or more specifically, entrepreneurship, as he always seemed to have some sort of idea for a new, oh-so-useful product that would allow him get rich quick and gain a little success. One can imagine just how ill-prepared Xuan was treated in the business world. It was an endless cycle of bad ideas, failed investments, and crummy business interactions, and by the end of it all, Xuan had been chewed up and spit out by the business world more times than he can count. At almost thirty, he had absolutely no money, no girlfriend or wife, and his dream of living the high life had crumbled.

    Jia Zhang, on the other hand, was a different story entirely and how Xuan managed to bag himself such a woman given his status as a dud is still a mystery to him to this day. She was an Asiatic beauty, attractive and alluring aesthetically and interesting and impressive intellectually. However, her most captivating trait, as many would agree, would have had to be her great strength. Personal bodyguards, a symbol of of status and muscle for China's booming billionaire population, came to be the fad among the rich. This was especially true for the female bodyguards, such as Pearl's mother Jia, as they were valued for their elegance, rigor, and covert presence. Jia was highly successful in her field, going through intense combat training from her adolescent through her adult years, and came to serve some of China's most successful, wealthy politicians. She really had no thoughts of a relationship at the time, let alone a family, even at her age. Yet, as life is full of twists and turns, that all changed when she fell in love with, you guessed it, the loser Xuan.

    It's fairly safe to say that Pearl was quite mollycoddled as a child, coming to be the youngest of the Tieu children and the daughter that Jia had secretly craved, even though she loved her boys all the same. Pearl lived a happy childhood in Hong Kong, where she lived a normal life with her family. Her father, the once failure, found a little achievement in a establishing a travel agency and her mother's days as an elite female bodyguard came to an end in favor of caring for her four children. Pearl's existence seemed nothing but normal; She fought and tussled with her older brothers, went to school, and liked ponies and the color pink, just as any other little girl. The only difference was, as she grew older, her intense love of and exceptional skill in gymnastics.

    There's a general trend among parents to place their children in some sort of training, in hopes that they excel and find early success in their lives that will carry into and positively influence their future. For Pearl, it was initially piano lessons, but it didn't take long for her parents to find out that music just wasn't her forte. She venomously despised having to play that dreadful instrument and let her hatred of the thing openly known through her tendency to scowl, cry, or run at the sight of it. No, Pearl's passion didn't lie with any sort of musical instrument, but with the one thing that has become her true love: gymnastics. Pearl can honestly say that gymnastics is the one thing she truly poured her heart and soul into; she pushed her limits and sweated her tears for the sport. She can't even count the amount of times that the tore her hands open on the equipment, leaving horrifically bloody hand prints in her wake or found herself lying on her back and crying in frustration because she couldn't perform a move. However, that was the life of a gymnast and eventually, Pearl's determination and hard work gained her various championship titles.

    As impressive as her skills were regarding the sport, Pearl was not requited into the elite school of San Foret because of her ability to perform the perfect spring vault. Pearl's proficiency in combat originated from her earlier days; The story goes that Pearl had been walking home from school one day on her own, as her brothers had been unable to pick her up, and she had become the victim of an attack. Every since that terrible scare, her mother, with her bodyguard background and experience with self defense, came to teach Pearl all that she knew about combat. She even grew to enjoy it. However, since those days Pearl has grown into an accomplished fighter. She can attribute that to her training in the veiled secrecy of her "schools."
