LightHobbies & 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:

"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!
