Appearance: Recruiting Tomoe
Akari outwardly portrays as a tomboyish delinquent, the type that cuts classes to do what they want and acts very uncouth for a girl her age. She gets into fights a lot with other delinquents mostly due to the fact that she doesn't tolerate any kind of bullying as a result of having a strong sense of justice. "Anyone that picks on the weak deserves an ass kicking!" those are the words that come out of her mouth when yelling at bullies. She is the type of girl that isn't afraid to throw a punch and is too stubborn to be knocked unconscious or face a group alone in order to defend someone.
Course there is more facets to her personality then just 'Fight! Punch! Kick!', She's a lover of martial arts movies and history documentaries, watching them on a DVD player she had managed to get second-hand at a bargain with money she earn't by working part-time at her Mom's general store, stacking shelves for minimum pay.
She is a stout believer in the supernatural as a result of her youth and a lover of ghost-stories and abandoned buildings, even claiming one as her 'hangout' for when she just wants to loiter around some place, while also using it as a place to hide her stash of drinks and sweets and other trinkets of interest. She even recently adopted a cat she named 'Tomoe' which she lets live in her hangout as a result of her mothers allergies.
Course even this rough and tough outgoing sort isn't without her flaws. She's a bit dense when it comes to social ques, misunderstanding nuance in peoples words, if one was to tell her "To go as straight as the crow flies." She would attempt to go in a straight line even when faced with an obvious turn. She also has a pretty childish fear of thunder even if she'd play it off as nothing and smile through it.
That's the type of person Akari is, She isn't the smartest, and she isn't the best at everything, but she harbours a burning passion and an iron will and a love for all things cool and mysterious.
A person who has magical circuits (that are woefully average) but isn't a mage, She doesn't really have much to offer to anything in terms of 'magical' abilities or the like. Physically? She can take a hit or two but she's only really hitting back with human level strength so like even that doesn't really matter to mage capable of the basics. So I guess what she can offer is guts! Guts and a passionate upbeatness despite any troubling scenarios as well as a DVD collection of movies and a cool hangout? She can also offer a roll mat so her servant can have a place to sleep while she sleeps on the floor.
Oh and also anything that can be brought on a part-timer's allowance. This'll work right? Right?!
Born to a hardworking mother and a absent father, Asaki's early live wasn't really anything of note besides the fact that even in her youth, she had a strong sense of beating the bad guys. Even if she wasn't really strong enough to do any beating yet. She'd create elaborate imaginations where she was a fighter capable of tearing down corrupt kingdoms. A wild imagination she has even now.
One of her favourite memories was the time she snuck out by herself late at night and encountered a genuine article ghost while exploring around the town at night. The Higanbana Shoujo
of course she couldn't exactly replicate her seeing it when she intentionally went looking the next night. But she refuses to believe that it was just a hallucination
She fell into her delinquent ways around her first year of Junior High School. Skipping class by herself because she found it so boring
. Really being trapped in some dingy classroom when there was so much better things she could do just got the better of her. She also got into her first fight at this time, which she one. Mostly because the bullies thought she was crazy, yelling so loud and flailing her fists. She caused her mom a lot of headache that day. She's gotten better at 'fighting' since then, and also gotten quite a few bruises and bloody noses, but for the most part she's just happy to get those idiots off the streets and back to doing productive stuff! She doesn't care if someones skipping school, just that they are not wasting time.
Oh! Recently she's gotten a new hangout spot out of a building that was a abandoned a few weeks ago and left in a terrible state which is why it is currently scheduled for demolition. But due to budget cuts from the Town Council, said demolition has been delayed for a while! making it the perfect spot to choose as her turf. Course bonus being that she also recently adopted a stray Queen she found and named Tomoe so she actually had a shelter to put the adorable ball of fluff in. Tomoe protects her stash of stuff, and she feeds the cat with fish from the sushi shop.
But the best part about the building? It would have to be small stash of books she found hidden under the floor boards (The way she found them is pretty embarrassing, but it mostly involves putting ones foot through a rotten floor panel). They were filled to the brim with books written about concepts that barely made any sense to her. Course they were all so detailed and mystical. But the one that took her eye the most was the small leather bound volume detailing how to summon a demon. Given the way she found it in a abandoned house, and the fact she absolutely believes in the supernatural? Well she just has to try this. But! She'd have to wait to get a paycheck first for some of the stuff listed, she couldn't afford the animal blood from the butchers without at least a full paycheck from her mom!
