Ririchiyo Shirakiin

"I'd rather not..."

0 · 733 views · located in Old Man Spalding's House

a character in “Summer At Spalding's”, as played by phoenix_lynx


I'd rather not...



Age; Sixteen, but due to her intelligence, she’s skipped a grade.

Gender; Female

Height; 145 cm (4'9")

Weight; 35 kg (77 lbs)

Appearance; "I don't really care, but I suppose many people do."
Ririchiyo is a rather petite girl who’s view on appearance is limited on her concerns list. She has long dark purple hair which can seem black at times, something she finds both irritating and comforting at the same time. And as someone who is quite...small for her age, it’s safe to say she’s used to the height jokes those around her declare. Matching her delicate framing, her eyes being a unique shade of purple seem to always be gleaming, whatever the emotion she is feeling. It seems that she wears her school uniform quite a lot, or at least a uniform of sorts, showing that she’d much rather be doing something productive. She wears many different type of clothes, but is mostly seen wearing her black deep v neck dress with four buttons on each and no sleeves. Underneath, she wears a white long sleeve ruffle blouse. Also, she wears plain black shoes and gray thigh length socks. However, all of her clothing seems quite dated and old fashioned.


Personality; "I have a bad personality, I find it difficult me."
As someone who isn’t very social, she finds comfort on being alone and so because of this has done significantly well in her studies to which she got moved up. Ririchiyo is a very shy girl who finds it difficult to show her true emotions and so comes across as quite harshly and rude to some people. However, friends who get to know her well will understand her better, although other strangers may be insulted by what she says at times. She can be sarcastic at times too. She's very intelligent and takes things seriously. She also gets good grades in school as a result she's named as top student. It’s only through letters can she truly be herself in all honesty. Ririchiyo Shirakiin is an intelligent girl with a past that has built her up to what she is today. Unable to easily trust people and their motives, it’s hard for her to ever break down the metaphorical wall between her cold exterior and her warm personality. If you can tolerate her pessimistic comments paired with her ability to jump to even the most peculiar conclusions, Ririchiyo may show you a side to her that will make the struggle worth it.

Talents; "I'm not that talented like the teachers say..."
* School in general – academic skills. "Learning helps stimulate the mind."
* Art. "I find it calming and refreshing."
* Survival skills. "It's necessary if you want to protect yourself."

Likes; "Are you surprised?"
♥ Tea. "A cup to start the morning, with wide variety of flavours for the new day."
♥ Exploring. "I love coming across new and secret places"
♥ The night time. "I'm an night owl"

Dislikes; "I can't stand some things..."
X Loud and crowded areas. "I just can't..."
X Hot weather. "I would prefer to be somewhere cold or wet"
X Ignorance. *sigh*

* Not very trusting and has bad communication skills. "I need to work on it, I know.."
* Social skills in general. "I'm an introvert..."
* Bad at opening up and being honest. "I'm like this for a reason."


Background; "Want to know why I turned out like this?"
Ririchiyo was born under the Shirakiin family, being a wealthy family of important status. But because of this she suffered through bullying and humiliation at school, they told her she was a boring person and that she shouldn't get full of herself just because her family was rich. That is why Ririchiyo puts up a front and developed her bad habit of verbally abusing people. Even her teachers vainly defend her from the bullies in hopes of getting recognized by her family. She has a younger sister whom she grew jealous of, merely by the fact that she had more attention and love from their parents than herself. Knowing this, Ririchiyo's father didn't hesitate at slapping her for yearning of her little sister's place. He told her that she didn't know better, and instead of her suffering, her younger sister had it much worse for having to live under her "shadow". Young Ririchiyo then only stood shocked and unmoving, touching the cheek to which her father violated.

It was then when she became a closed person, often avoiding public places or events. Instead she used all her time and effort into her studies in the hopes of finally moving away from her family and to start a new life somewhere where no one knew her family background or status.She always got moved to different classes that tried to fit her intellect side, but even with the changes, she never gained any friends.

At the age of twelve, it seemed clear that she cared little about human interaction. Though those around her, which were usually servants or those working for the household tried hard to talk to her, more to get into the good books than out of mere kindness, Ririchiyo began to write letters to her deceased mother as a way of showing the human in her. It became a regular thing and whilst she kept the letters in a small old insignificant box, it seemed that the letters were the only sign of her emotions, a sign of her life.

Other; "Just some useless facts about me."
■ Her favourite song is a classical piece called "Comme au Premier Jour" by André Gagnon.
■ She has a younger sister.
■ Her preference in clothing colours are black, white, grey, blue, and brown. If she feels the colour is too strong, she usually chooses less bright fabrics.
■ She's scared of thunder, in fact she seems to always be hidden under a table or somewhere in the dark because of it.
■ Ririchiyo secretly loves romantic mangas.

So begins...

Ririchiyo blinked harshly as she sat up from her bed. As she scanned the dark room, she pulled herself off the bed and wriggled her bare feet. It was still rather early though she was known for having wild nightmares which kept her up half the night, though of course she strongly denied it. Not that anyone really cared.

Making her way to the bathroom, she showered quickly and pulled on her long white ruffled sleeves blouse with a deep black V neck dress on top. Settling down on the floor, she slipped into gray thigh length socks before stepping into her black shoes. Checking herself in the mirror to make sure everything looked perfect; she stepped out of her room.

”Good Morning Miss. Shirakiin.” Nodding as an acknowledgement, she walked away from the maids who greeted her with smiles. Fake of course.

While she walked to the main living area, those around her continued to greet her and with every time she simply nodded. As she walked into the lounge, her eyes noticed that it was empty and unused, though that was a frequent seeing these days. Sighing gently, she turned on her heel and walked into the next room which consisted of a large dining table with several fancy silk chairs. On top of the table, arranged in perfect order was deliciously prepared food.

As she continued to walk till she was sitting at the head of the table. A cup of freshly brewed lavender tea was directly in front of her. Taking a deep breath in, she took her first sip, savouring the taste.

”Miss. Shirakiin, your father has decided to go visit some old friends and has made the orders to make you arrive to a place to spend your summer.” Looking up from her tea at the man who stood beside her, she yet again sighed, nodding gently.

”Whenever you are ready...though we will have to leave today, right now if possible.” He added, smiling widely at her.

Taking her last sip, she stood up and walked away out of the dining room with the untouched food and down a long corridor where she made her way outside. A cold breeze hit her hair, blowing it around in much to her annoyance. Perhaps she should simply get it cut, though she secretly loved her long hair.

The man from earlier stepped out and besides her, motioning forward as he stood by the dark black car. He pulled open the door for her as she slipped inside, taking her seat. The young man closed the door firmly and checked the trunk for her suitcase before finally taking the driver’s seat.


”We are here.”

Ririchiyo looked at the house through the window. It looked pretty homely...cosy. Something she wasn’t used to nor been in before. As the car door got opened, she walked out and scanned the area. It seemed that there was noise towards the home, looking at her butler for answers, he simply smiled at her.

”Others will also be staying here, time for you to make friends and get to know people your own age.” He grabbed the suitcase from the trunk and walked into the house.

Looking back at the taxi and at the man who seemed irritated, she walked up to him and tilted her head questioning. “Money...?” Her voice was hushed and quiet, naturally like a whisper, but it seemed the man understood and nodded with much displeasure. Blinking, she took some money from her pocket, unaware of how much and gave it to him before walking away. She heard him shout at her about change, but she ignored him and walked into the house.

”It seems that some has already arrived, Miss. Shirakiin do have a lovely time, and it also seems that you paid for the taxi man outside... The butler put down the suitcase, briefly and surprisingly hugged the young girl before waving goodbye at everyone and making his way back to the car.

Ririchiyo blinked under her large lashes as she stared at the two others in front of her.
