Sengoku Horizon

Look towards the Horizon

The Warring States Period: Fierce warlords fought for control of Japan, and many would perish. When a warrior falls, where does the passion they once held go? Possibly into something dear such as a favorite weapon or heirloom. These heirlooms have been labeled as “relics”, and those that carry them are labeled as “Scions." Recently more and more of these special relics have been activating, signaling the start of a great change as ancient power meets the modern world!

Now For The Local News, 06/01/2018 The Chinese delegation have now arrived at the city of Edo. Making friends and learning about Edo Culture is their current aim! In other news it is also time for the school dance event! Please bring your characters along!

user posted image

• 16, FEMALE

HAIR: Lightly wavy, jet black hair, shoulder blades lenght.
EYES: Right eye is dark brown, the left one is light blue.
HEIGHT: 160 cm
BODY TYPE: Average/ "Petite"
STYLE: She's always generally very formal in her style, loves traditional clothes. She's not against uniforms and loves to wear them too. Her Casual clothes are aimed to be minimal and simple.
OTHER: Eye heterochromy.

Calm, quiet and modest, a simple girl with good manners and a high education. She's almost like her brother, with a high sense of justice and duty, but she doesn't get in the middle of other affairs too personally like him. She tends to be standoffish on people she doesn't like at the first glance, filled with prejudices, making it hard to gain her trust, but with whoever she is confident she gets friendly and affectionate, seeking only the best for them.

STRENGTHS: Will of iron, perseverance, magnanimous, multilingual (Japanese, English and Russian), great expressivity in matter of words.
WEAKNESSES: She can be easily fooled since she's very naive; she can act absently quite often, she's touchy, she gets offended easily; sometimes she's quite prideful in a negative way.
LIKES: Spring days, order, clean places; reading and writing, Art, museums, Photography; sweet food, hot drinks.
DISLIKES: Winter days, cold in general, chaotic places or situations; bullies, rude or disprectful people; physical touch in general, if not allowed by her.
AMBITIONS: She aims to be a Politic or a Lawyer, or at the very least an important Shrine Maiden somewhere in Japan.

WEAPON: Double War Fans; attacks focused on close quarters, fast and aimed to disorient the enemy, or else to have a solid defense against foes to support others.
RELIC: A chashaku, named "Namida" by the original owner.
RELIC OWNER: Sen no Rikyū.
OWNER HISTORY: It is said that in this last tea instrument, Rikyu has transfused all his spiritual strength, all his aesthetic belief before he committed the seppuku.
ACTIVATED ABILITY 1: For that Ability she needs one Fan. It can collect more air than the average and release it stronger in the aimed direction, that attack could easily push away bodies or torn small or thin objects.(1 turn cooldown)
ACTIVATED ABILITY 2: This time, using both her Fans, the wind generated could easily shove down an average or slightly thinner body; it could break common glasses or flip down objects entirely. (3 turn cooldown)
LOCKED ACTIVATED ABILITY 3: She gets surrounded by a full wind shield for several seconds, it can deflects meele or white weapons attacks, but gunshots could easily go past it. She can create the shield also for someone else, healing them a little (this is not included on herself).(Shield lasts three rounds)(five turn cooldown)
PASSIVE 1: Basic Poisons have reduced in half their effect on her; strong or stronger Poisons affect her with their normal damage.
LOCKED PASSIVE 2: Her Activated Abilities gain longer range. Allowing her to use them like a throwing weapon instead of melee.
LOCKED AWAKENED ATTACK: Literally a little hurricane. The Fans' last attack could deal severe damages on people or objects around herself within a radius of 5-10 meters from her spot. However in the aftermath the Fans would be damaged as well as they could be holed or completely bended backward or both, rendering them useless to be used in a second time.

• Father: Ratimir Ilyich Rybakov, Russian
• Mother: Chō Sōtan, Japanese
• Sibling: A Twin Brother, Youri
• NPC Friend or Mentor: Sen no Rikyu, Takeno Joo (of course in relation to books for her knowledge in Teaism); none yet in the Academy.

BACKGROUND: Their family line started with Sen no Sōtan (千宗旦) (1578–1658), also known as Genpaku Sōtan (元伯宗旦), who was the grandson of the famed figure in Japanese cultural history, Sen no Rikyū. He is remembered as Rikyū's third-generation successor in Kyoto. He was the son of Sen Shōan and Okame, a daughter of Rikyū, and is counted as the third generation in the three lines of the Sen family known together as the san-Senke.
However, Sen no Sōtan was the owner of the precious chashaku owned by his grandfather, Namida, which it passed on from generation to generation, until it ended up in the hands of Chō Sōtan, the first born beside three other sibilings, in the end of the sixties of the 20th Century.

Chō Sōtan however didn't continued the line of her ancestor by becoming a tea master, instead she passed that to another family member while she returned her studies. She later met a man from Russia, Ratimir Rybakov, while being in Nagasaki, and it was almost a love at first sight. Some years later, when they were in a stable relationship and away from any problems caused by her parents mostly, she married him in March. Later on they moved their residence in Kyoto, in the Fushimi Ward, where to build their family in peace.

The twins were both born in 2002, the first one being Kayoko and some minutes later Youri.

The youth of Kayoko was well spent in a normal and quite well-heeled life, though she went in private schools for some issues related to her foreign father. She spent her free time in learning an instrument, the Koto and learn the rafinate arts around the wabi-cha: the Cha-No-Yu (the Tea Ceremony) and Chabana (the flower compositions for the Ceremony).

She begun to use the Fans thanks for her mother, at first for some cultural facts, then to dance with them, but soon later she decided to learn their use also in matter of self-defence, switching them with actual War Fans around the age of 14/15.
Already a little prodigy with them, she was well praised for her elegance in wielding them.

Her family, shocked by the events of the Ikko-Ikki Monks between 2015 and 2016, became more protective of their children, but Kayoko was instead willed to find a way to protect her homeland, hence deciding to join the Edo Bugeshi. At first her mother was rather disappointed and fearful for that decision, but she accepted anyway after she saw in her some good potentials to join the Academy, curiously enhanced with the Family Relic.
She was sent in the School with her brother for a better security, in the end of 2017.
