Just saw this, but thought I may as well throw my hat into the ring.

P E R S O N A L I T Y
Any chance she got, Saki has always sought to explore wherever she could. She has long mapped out every inch of the mansion she grew up in and even some of the grounds around along with the village. Part of her wants to travel outside the village someday, maybe even see what's outside the valley. But she knows that that isn't likely, so contents herself with taking what adventures she can from the place she lives
Growing up, Saki's most common games were to imagine she was some great hero out of stories, protecting others from those that would hurt them. Any time she could hear more of the old stories then or more about the old world, she'd leap on the chance, eager to add even more to her own stories. Even as she comes to the cusp of adulthood, she can't help but still imagine those stories to herself, playing pretend when she thinks no one else is looking.
If there's one person that doesn't have a mean bone in their body, its Saki. Kind and compassionate, almost to a fault, she will go out of her way to help others if she can. Its part of why she wants to become the next Master. She wants to be there to help others and to defend them if the extraordinary should happen.
S K I L L S E T
Whether running, jumping, climbing, or lifting weights, Saki has worked hard to train herself in various ways to prove she would be a worthy candidate to become the next master. Also, it helped with her games to really be able to do the feats she imagined herself doing.
Traditional Housewife Training
Her parents were always of a traditional sort of mind. And so, they made sure Sakimoria learned all there was about being a proper housewife so as to not embarrass the family and be better suited for marriage. Sakimoria never really liked the training, but she resigned herself to it since there was no way out for her. Therefore, she is at least decent with sewing, cooking, embroidery, proper etiquette, and other such skills. She only hopes that they don't become her whole life. The only part she's enjoyed is the few Signs learned to help with housework.
Sakimoria is proficient with reading and writing, even managing to learn to read some examples of ancient writing in order to better learn about the old world. She reads from the books around for more stories, history, and sometimes just for random facts or while bored and unable to do anything else. Then she also jots down thoughts, feelings, and some of her more fleshed out stories and ideas within her journal. She also uses it to practice Sign drawing, seeking anyway to improve her skills.
Long red hair that is most commonly done up in a simple high ponytail, but has been used to being in some more 'feminine' updos for formal occasions. Her eyes are a sparkling dark green within a diamond-shaped, symmetrical face. Stature wise, she's only slightly on the taller side, but has the muscles to match her activities.
Sakimoria is the daughter of one of Master Takamori's relations that live within his manor. Her father and mother, Takamori Ryuji and Takamori Tanith, are a fairly matched couple, strict and scheming for the prosperity and status that would be theirs's if Ryuji inherited the title. Therefore, they've raised Sakimoria to be everything they've thought a woman should be in order for her to not disappoint them and to have a marriage that would help them with their goals. However, their scheming also meant that they weren't around much in her life, meaning she was left to be watched by maids in her early years that told her stories and legends of long ago. From the moment she first heard them, she was spellbound. Her imagination was captivated, and from that moment on she could not imagine anything but to be one of those heroes.
Of course, her parents did all they could to squash those dreams anytime she talked about them. She was a Takamori woman, in a time of peace. There would no talk of fighting or trouble from her. All they allowed her was to learn how to better be a future wife and mother, suitable for high society. And so, she stopped talking about heroes and her dreams with them. Instead, she simply used any moment she had free to explore along the mansion grounds and continue her make believe, doing what she could to train for being a hero whether from doing all she could to become more athletic to reading about everything she could get her hands on that revealed more about what ancient times and ancient heroes were like. Sometimes though, she'd go and look at Master Kenji's sword in its sheathe, daydreaming that one day, something might happen where she would be the one wielding it to save the village. If she was feeling bold enough, she'd go and ask him herself if he could take her on as his apprentice to be the next Master. She'd only be denied, but she's kept persisting, doing what she could to convince him to take her on, learning his ways in order to be more like him. If she was ever sent out to the village, she'd also go out of her way to see Seimei Tomo, having enjoyed learning signs under her and admiring the quiet confidence of her being, how even her parents had to respect her. She understood that she likely was outside Seimei's notice or remembrance, but she soon became another model for who she wanted to be like.
As the days have passed, the dream hasn't died, but she's had to put up with more and more of what her parents want, dreading the day they'd choose out someone to be her husband. Fortunately, they so far have not agreed on one person long enough to come close and anytime someone came anywhere close, she'd quietly figure out a same to sabotage it. Most of her make believe though now is sequestered to her journal, the times she's able to break away becoming fewer and fewer. Part of her just wants to get away from it all, leave the valley entirely and see someplace new. Another part wants her to just accept what her life is like and prepare herself for what she'll have to be. Still, the third part still wishes that she could be made the Master, be the ultimate hero of the village, or that something would happen that would allow her to become a true hero. However, she's about to learn that its better to be careful what you wish for...Because you might get it.
Takamori Kenji: Basically her distant uncle. She looks up to him and hopes to be a hero like him.
Seimei Tomo: Another person she admires and wants to be like. If Kenji never took her on as his apprentice, she would hope there was a chance that Seimei might. However, she knows that even less chance of that happening.
Takamori Ryuji and Takamori Tanith: Her parents, distantly related to Kenji through one of his brother's. Don't truly care about Saki at all except as a means for their ends. Saki obeys them mostly because she has to honor and respect them, but part of her still wants their love and approval. She knows that that's impossible, but the heart wants what the heart wants.
Signs she knows: Heat, Water, Purify, Mend? (pending, would basically be a Sign to fix things that have minor breaks like a basket)
