Name: Kana Asakura
Personality: Kana is an odd mix of a what you would call a samurai and a delinquent. Outwardly she comes across as a calm and stoic person, though she also tends to have a very delinquent like speech pattern and actions. She is an extremely determined individual and comes off as very intense at times, though she’d still a just person and will defend the weak, when it comes down to it.
Kana is a expert martial artist and street brawler. As the heir to the Asakura dojo, she uses the martial arts style known as “The That Quells the Seas and Silences the Storm” or in less mouthy terms, Asakura Style Karate. Asakura Style Karate’s originates from the Asakura family’s samurai route, due to being a group of traditionalists the form has seen less changes compared to modern Karate, keeping it’s battlefield routes and effectiveness, even keeping weapons handling as part of it’s training.
Motorcycle driving: She has both the license and the image to drive one around. She uses a chopper style bike to get around, it may seem masculine, but she’s always been a bit of a masculine kind of person.
Brief Backstory: Kana’s mother died when she was young, she died giving birth to her younger brother, but both did not make it. Her father and her didn’t know how to deal with that grief and how to properly connect to each other, so he tried the only way he knew how, as the head of the dojo and the heiress. The strict training, only caused the rift to grow between them. As a response Kana became a delinquent in middle school lashing out at everyone and terrorizing those who got in her way, using the martial training she was given.
One day, she saw a student bullying another meeker student. Normally she would have just walked away, but the bullying student has pissed her off earlier, so she punched them out, but before she could leave, the bullied student called out to her and then shot out a rapid fire string of word, which Kana could barely understand, but somehow she got caught in the pace of the other student, who revealed her name to be Kaori.
Kaori became Kana’s only and best friends, their friendship caused Kana to soften just a little, if only so she doesn’t actively starts fights on her own, though she would still raise her hand to protect her best friend if she needed to. They were inseparable, At least until High School. Kaori and Kana started to become distant and Kana didn’t know why. Kaori all of a sudden was really busy and tended to cancel plans and just disappeared out of nowhere and Kana decided to find out why.
Kana tailed Kaori in secret, finding out that she was heading to an abandoned area of town. When she finally stopped Kana finally found out her secret, as she transformed in front of her eyes to combat monsters. Kaori was a magic girl and unfortunately Kana was caught in the middle, even worse this wasn’t a normal Shade either, this was a very powerful Shade, that had enough power to direct other Shades, something that Kaori didn’t realize. The battle didn’t end well, especially since Kaori took a serious injury when the shade realized Kana was there and Kaori got in it’s path to protect her, though she managed to cause a big enough distraction for Kana to drag Kaori out of there.
Kana tried her best to get her friend to the hospital. She had to leave her motorcycle behind to trail Kaori stealthily and their phones didn’t have reception to call an ambulance. The only other person or rather thing around was something that introduced itself as Kaori’s Fairy
who was currently trying their best to lead them to the hospital, only for the minor Shades to catch up to them. Surrounded, the fairy gave her a way to save herself. As it turns out Kana did also have potential, but Kaori prevented the fairy from recruiting her in an attempt to protect her, but without any other choice she accepted. Kana transformed and dispatched the Shades handily and got Kaori to a hospital… but it was too late.
Kaori’s death was deemed to be a work of a brutal slasher, as no one would believe that it was a monster made from negative emotions. Kana went to Kaori’s funeral, not just to grieve, but to quietly slay the Shade that would be created by the emotions of grief. She decided that she was going to take up the position of a magical girl and protect the city in Kaori’s place.
