My name's Araliss. Or Ara. I've gone by both lately. I'm here both for the setting/atmosphere, and to build some fun inter-character connections! I've got Shinju, the spunky young ninja for now, which you can read about right here
if you would like to thread once I'm all approved!
It's been fun meeting people so far. I can't wait to say hi to everyone though.

<br>HAIR: Short black hair, cut in a more tomboyish style.
<br>EYES: Brown eyes - on the lighter side of brown.
<br>BODY TYPE: Shinju is Skinny, but fit.
<br>STYLE: Shinju often wears darker clothing, born more from her preference for more ‘punk-style’ clothing than her ninja training. She’s just as often seen in her school uniform though, and doesn’t really prefer one over the other unless she has good reason to.
<br>OTHER: Both of Shinju’s ears are pierced, with small silver studs adorning each ear. They don’t really stand out much.
Shinju is a driven girl; one whose primary motivation in life is to do well. Unfortunately, for reasons that her parents and the school staff are at a complete loss for, she doesn’t seem to equate being a good student with being a proper one. She tends to interpret bushido loosely, though there is one tenant she is unwavering in - She’s loyal to a fault to those she owes it to, either through her family or any other connections.
Shinju seems rather carefree. She’s not intense unless the situation calls for it, and she’s not particularly high-strung. Shinju’s simply naturally adaptable. It’s both a strength and a weakness depending on how she interprets things. That isn’t to say she doesn’t panic about some things or get overly excited about others. When the chips are down though, Shinju has repeatedly shown herself to be dependable, even if her style or methods aren’t exactly to the highest standards of honor.[/b]
<br>STRENGTHS: Adaptable and smart
<br>WEAKNESSES: rebellious and a little too independent
<br>LIKES: Girls, being outdoors, and winning.
<br>DISLIKES: Losing, being too restricted, and having people constantly watching over her shoulder.
<br>AMBITIONS: Shinju is determined to be a successful ninja. She’s not willing to lose who she is as a good servant probably should be, but she is more than willing to work extra hard to prove she’s still just as useful as others, if not moreso. It’s one of the few reasons she’s tolerated for being how she is, even if it makes her life harder to do so.
WEAPON: Wakizashi - a short, somewhat ornate blade passed down from her late grandfather. It has a silver hilt guard in the image of twin snakes.

Born to the main branch of the Satake family in the Ugo province, Shinju had high expectations placed on her from a young age. She looked up to her grandfather, Hisao, who was a bushi in service to the emperor up until he suffered an injury that took him out of active duty. He returned home in time for the young Shinju to be born, and used his time to help raise her and teach her the importance of serving her country.
Shinju both excelled and chafed under her expectations at times. As she grew, she proved herself capable of the basics she was taught, but she also showed a tendency to think a little too outside the box for everyone’s comfort. She was cautioned or disciplined about it over the course of her childhood, but her grandfather tended to be a little too soft on her thanks to their close relationship. Hisao passed away when Shinju was twelve, and after that she became a bit more wild, as only her grandfather had ever been very successful in making her behave through promises to teach her when she wasn’t busy with other duties.
Shinju’s talents and different way of thinking got her accepted into Edo Bugei Academy for ninja training; her abilities made her a natural for shadowy infiltration duties, after all. The problem was, she was just a bit *too* different in how she behaved. She tended to ignore rules and curfew, and as a result was severely punished, with the school forcing her to report to a more responsible upperclassman every few days. She was watched closely by the school, but she did show promise. If she could keep from getting herself thrown out, hurting not just herself, but her whole family’s honor as well, perhaps she could make something of herself.
Despite her terrible first impressions, Shinju wanted to make herself known as a useful ninja, not a liability. She promised to attempt to do better despite her unruly tendencies, and formally apologized to the teachers who had disciplined her earlier in the year. And so her quest to prove her capabilities began.
