@BladeSS4, Kindness is free, actually, although we'll have to increase our number of Chosen Children to 9; my fault for forgetting its existence. Also, can you add another two paragraphs onto the bio, further detailing his life under his survivalist dad and sports star brother?
@BeachDude7PH

Interested, but it's too late for me to get anything written down so just count on me dropping something down tommorrow. Feeling that Courage trait, but we'll see what I can come up with over work tomorrow.


Courage is reserved, actually; same for Hope.
@BeachDude7PH Well, the "perfect little girl but is actually a manipulative shrew" bent to it comes off as very misogynistic, and the interests and other things being so stereotypical comes off as a lack of depth which seems sexist as a result.


She's actually meant to be a creature of her circumstances; she has to survive in the cutthroat world of the Japanese upper class. She's also meant to be more sympathetic in the later parts of her bio.
Character Sheet

Name: Carol Akechi

Nationality: Filipino - Japanese

Appearance & Physical Attributes/Picture:


Age & Birth Date: 16, January 1 1995

Trait: Light

Hobbies & Skills: Carol is a surprisingly good head at economics and business despite her young age, but manages to keep her skills from being seen as a threat by smiling and 'submissively' suggesting her ideas, slipping them in such a way that the males in her life take said ideas for their own and even believe they thought them up. When around people her age, she is slightly more outspoken, but not so much that she ruins her image of being 'Daddy's perfect little girl'. She has also learned how to use the Naginata, as well as a Filipino Kalis sword with a half-wavy, half-straight blade.

She can also cook, clean, and embroider, traditionally feminine pursuits that she chooses to excel in to bolster her image.

Digimon Partner: YukimiBotamon>Nyraomon>Salamon>Gatomon/Tailmon>Angewomon>Holydramon.

Quote & Personality: "Wouldn't you prefer [Insert X Here]?" or "If I may humbly make a suggestion?"

Carol knows that while her parents are legally married and both rich, her half-foriegn status makes her only slightly above an illegitimate child in the eyes of many. Thus, she tries to overawe people with beauty and poise, sweetness and purity without them realizing that it was all an act. When she shows intelligence, she shows it in a way that does not threaten the egos of her family and friends, even though closer eyes would recognize what she does as manipulation. All this comes from a desire to be loved and a desire to be safe. However, she knows her heart is empty and that she is no romantic heroine; she may appear to be such, but her discreet struggle for survival has made her feel that she cannot truly be 'romantic'.

Deep inside, she wishes to be a heroine of action, a leader in her own way, one not bound by the rules of elders and men. And perhaps, this may be her opportunity.

Bio: Carol Akechi was born from the marriage of a Japanese Man, Kyosuke Akechi, with Contessa Minerva de Mendoza; the daugther Conde Bernandino de Mendoza, a Filipino Sugar Baron with Spanish aristocratic blood. This was done so that the Akechi Zaibatzu can gain access to the rich and fertile plantations and farms of the Mendozas; foriegners are forbidden from owning land in the Philippines. This bargain, unheard of and unthinkable even in Japan, brought the Akechi Zaibatzu an immense amount of wealth that allowed them to take their place among the greatest families of the archipelago.

But for Carol, what it brought was the experience of early ostracism and the awareness of being an outcast yet privileged at the same time. And so as the young woman realized how smart she was, she began seeking out new knowledge and experiences, as well as influence over her own parents. Combining the Japanese ideal of the 'Yamato Nadeshiko' with the Philippines' vision of the 'Ideal Filipina', Carol adopted an image of a demure and non-threatening lady who 'merely wanted help her future husband manage the vast riches he would inherit when they married'.

All the while, however, she passively-aggressively badmouthed ever possible suitor to her parents and planting the idea that said suitors were unworthy to share in their wealth and success. Then, she began spending increased amounts of time online under an assumed name, and began an online friendship Henry Featherstone, a boy about her age (played by @Doc Sammy). Henry was not rich, but not poor either, and she liked him. But because of their differences in social status and race, she knew she had to acquire even more power if she were ever to further dilute her Japanese bloodline by falling in love with him, something she pondered doing.

But that comes later; right now, to luxuriate in the Philippines' resorts!

We'll be, we'll be counting stars.


The DigiDestined. Chosen Children from different parts of the world with each having sets of dreams that would summon them to an island paradise for a vacation of a lifetime. Then suddenly on that one hot summer night, a freak blackout...in which a gateway into a world different from what they once knew opened without warning, a gateway into the realm known as the Digital World. For champions are needed against a great evil, a threat that seeks to take over all universes, both Digital and Real.

The date and time was August the 1st of 2011, 7.00pm UTC+8. The DigiDestined have no idea what's in store for them as their very lives are at stake. And one of them was the very reason why they are chosen for such a time as this.

j̴͙̒̅̿ů̷̡͉̙̩̺̤̥̈́̄̏͠š̸̌̽̽͐̔́̔͜t̷̡̛͚̦̫͋̉͊̔̀̊̓́͜ ̸͎̓̀̽̍́̓̀̇̒s̴̢̯̈́̒̍͜͝e̴̲̭͌́͑͋͆̎͒͠͝v̶̖̙̫̖̯̣͐̓̍̀̚͜͠͝e̴͕̳̮̳͙̺̅̋̅̏͐́̾ͅn̷̹͕̙̮̉̓̽̋͘

A brief explanation. In the 1940s, the Atanasoff-Berry Computer and ENIAC were invented, one after the other. They created the first Digital World, the one we know today as the world of Digimon Adventure*. After them came the various Yggdrassil units, supercomputers who implanted themselves into countless parallel universes, creating Digital Worlds in each of them as well. A few of these Yggdrassil units were benevolent, some were arrogant and tyrannical, but a few were merely devoted to esoteric goals and agendas.

The local Yggdrasil merely wished to find others like himself, yet this goal was already enough to do damage, as in order to breach the walls between universes, said local Yggdrasil had to bust a hole in the Digital World; this would kill those inhabitants who cannot get to safety. Seven of the most powerful Digimon objected to that not just because their homes were threatened, but because they wanted Yggdrasil's power for themselves.

These Seven Digimon, later known as the Seven Demon Lords/Seven Deadly Sins, attacked Yggdrasil as the latter were about to begin his plan, and killed him. They then took over the Digital World, replacing Yggdrasil's destructive neglect with their own destructive malice.

Dorumon the leader of Yggdrasil's elite guard, the Royal Knights, decided to resurrect him by recruiting eight human children to partner with several Digimon, who would overthrow the Seven Deadly Sins and then use the power of their crests to revive Yggdrasil...who would be free to burst open holes in the Digital World once more in an attempt to contact his siblings as well as Atanasoff and ENIAC. Note that he does not plan on telling you this; some secrets are best kept hidden.

So, yes, a morally grey tale where you choose between willful evil and wanton destruction, unless you figure things out and come up with your own solution...

*This is Canon, by the way, see this link. And yes, they were Canon Characters before Yggdrasil was a thing.
