Description

Oyuki Kobayashi

Image

Long hair of the darkest ebony black though skin as white as snow even without her apprentice make up on.
She is petite as of any woman of Asian descent would be though
she often wears wooden shoes to make her stand some what taller as tradition for girls like her.
Her figure is slender of course, growing up with meager amounts of food to eat.
Even though she's still a maiko she is seen wearing a lavish and expensive kimono
of light sky blue silk almost soft as if it was from a spider and shimmering like gossamar.
upon wich are lotus, lilies and reeds of splendid pale pinks and vibrant leaf greens.
The clothing would be best suited for her, complimenting her brilliant
eyes that shine an indigo or rain like color,
very rare in her country and the Okiya she lives at
prize them as unique money-making assets.

Personality

Timid and shy, mostly scared of the world before her with little confidence
if one takes the time to figure her out or put her at ease she might have a more cheerful deamenor.
Despite her shortcomings and unnatural fear of others she is kind though not bubbly at all.

Equipment

Some times she carrys a Shamisen (Traditional japanese string instrument)

History

A Geisha is a high-class mistress/courtesan in Japan,
or some times just as a synonym for a high-class prostitute.
In actuality the main function of a Geisha is entertainment
(Singing dancing and playing musical instruments or simply good conversation.)
, while traditionally having a long-term male sponsor
(a dana, with whom a geisha may or may not be having sex with).


Oyuki herself was trained and lived in an Okiya were young Geisha train
and fully trained Geisha live until there debts are paid off,
all her life she has been trained in music, dance, and tea ceramony.
Her orginal name was Hikari but When a girl becomes a maiko, an apprentice geisha,
she takes a professional name (geimei) to symbolize her new life.
These names are flamboyant and antiquated.
and often have the feel of the 1700's and 1800's like the clothing they wear,
from the heyday of geisha and kabuki.


When Oyuki was a small child born to a low class prostitute
it would have been her destined fate as well, that or death but
there was a saving grace an elder Geisha passed the girls sick
and possibly homeless mother in Kyoto the Winter Oyuki turned three and a half
and she saw the girls bright indigo eyes, wordlessly she scooped her up from the
emaiciated sleeping mother perhaps stealing her would have been cruel to the pauper woman but,
The elder Geisha knew her eyes meant some thing and she was right,
Oyuki had been touched or enchanted by a Yuki - onna demon or snow mistress.
This could have given the girl extrordinary grace and wisdom or eternal youth and beauty but who could know?

So begins...

Oyuki Kobayashi opened the door too fast and stumbled into the bar then tripping over the threshhold, the groove of one of her wooden sandals catching it. She fell on her knees dropping a paper box she'd been carrying, it flew clear across the room hitting a wall and she shouted across at it as if willing it to stop though a human as she was that would not happy "Sutoppu!" Her shout was in Japanese and it resembled the word 'stop', her dialect was that of Kyoto's red lantern district or near it.
She was dressed as an apprentice Geisha or Maiko, with a long cream colored kimono of soft tusonoma silk like a spiders thread and red under robes and obi tied around her waist, the outer kimono was pure in color and its embroidery was red lotus flowers.

Oyuki Kobayashi 's dropped box was obviously some form of caligraphy set as when it crashed to the floor black liquid began spilling from it. She picked herself up with care as her kimono was quite delicate and her hair was done so very elaborately being strung up high in a complicated bun like structure, and fitted with many ornaments such as cherry blossoms on sticks high. She seemed to want to collect her shattered caligraphy set but how could she get the white clothing she bore dirty like that? She arose nervously and shifted around she had spent the day going from tea house to tea house and studying full Geisha, Oyuki was rather weary and scatter brained at that moment.

Oyuki Kobayashi bowed low with grace and outstreatched fingers in the typical style of Maiko Geisha, to the both of them who had been complaining about her mess but she would not clean it thinking there had to be some kind of janitorial staff. Her voice was light and high in a melodic way "I beg you're pardon for the mess.." She didn't know what else to say to them for an apology.
