[CHARACTER'S NAME:] Kokutan
[REAL NAME:] Seeshinno Kokutan
[AGE:] 251 but tries to act like a young adult (Born 1728)
[SEX:] Female
[HAIR/EYE COLORS:] Copper coloured hair and tail, gold eyes with black pupils
[STATUS:] Demon living in an anti-demon temple.

[GENERAL APPEARANCE:]
Kokutan is a ½ kitsune/demon. That is to say she's ½ kitsune and ½ demon. She has long, lower back length, blackish copper hair and a tail that is the same colour with a white tip on the end. Her eyes are metallic gold with black cat pupils. Her ears stand on top of her head and are a little darker then the rest of her hair. There are usually jade earrings towards the base of her ears. She stands about 5'6". When she smiles look for her 2 sharp fangs to be poking out. Kokutan's feet are really just large paws, 3 toes each and each equipped with a sharp set of claws.

[GENERAL CLOTHING:]
Kokutan's fighting clothes were basically jade coloured Chinese pants and a darker tube top. She had a black and gold jacket to go over the top that had jade sleeves. She still wears them from time to time however, she's given up fighting for the most part and now walks around in kimonos. She prefers plain blue or green ones and wears them a little loose around the legs in case something does threaten her. She'll put on normal street clothes only after "fixing" them... basically slicing a hole in the rear for her tail. She prefers jeans and blouses when she does dress like that. Kokutan absolutely despises shoes and socks.

[WEAPONRY:]
Kokutan has ki built up from her years of being a demon but it's never gotten to a really powerful point, after she left the Makai. She manipulates what she has in many ways preferring to use a ki bomb thrown at close distance to make up for it's lack of "oomph". She doesn't use any real weaponry any more, but due to her slight build of ki she can run faster then most. Kokutan likes to use her speed more then anything, "blurring" in and out of people's sight. Kokutan also sports a long set of claws she keeps hidden as normal looking nails until she needs them. Her fangs also serve as a weapon, but she doesn't like the taste of humans really.

[POWERS/SKILLS:]
Kokutan's hearing is extremely good due to her large ears and she has ki but it is not very much. She can detect when something from the Makai has entered the human realm. She can go so far as opening "gates" to go back an forth to the demon world, however these gates are very weak and unstable. She is weak in terms of power levels and her main defense and offense lies in her speed and hearing. She can usually avoid ki blasts and pretty much can duck out of the way of skilled swordsmen...bullets may be another matter, *no one's tried to shoot her* and wards certainly will stop her. She's also a fairly good cook, trying out new things in the temple now that she has a kitchen at her disposal.

[ATTITUDE:]
Kokutan is really an easygoing demon. She's not one to get angered too quickly...with Dachend it's another matter. She can be very cool and calm or incredibly "genki" or cheerful. Kokutan will socialize but is still nervous about humans freaking out about her demon status. She is full of smiles though. _Sometimes_ she may disolve into typical female "wicked laughter". *read: OHOHOHO!!* When probed about her past though she may become a little withdrawn for a few hours.

[REACTIONS TO:]

{A GREETING:}
(friend:) *hug* "OHAYO!! How are ya?"
(stranger) "Hello! *big fang baring smile* How are you?"
(enemy:) *blinks* "Why the hell are you talking to me, freak?"

{A CHALLENGE:}
*if she's not taking it seriously* "Oh geez...now? I'm not dressed properly. Can it wait?!"
*if she is taking it seriously* "*snort* Iku."

{AN ATTACK:}Will stand a little pissed or shocked and then start fighting back, trying to end it as soon as possible.

{A PASS:}
(cute male:) *blush* "Anoo..." *giggle*
(not so cute male:) "Fine...wanna meet my in-laws?" *produces picture of various snarling drooling demons hoping to scare him off*
(female:) "Gomen nasai. I'm not like that..."

[BACKGROUND:]
Kokutan comes from the Makai. She is the daughter of a kitsune and an ice demoness. She was raised by her father, Kuruma, and was a thief in her kit days, which helped her develop the speed she has now. Had to run away from screamingly mad and powerful demons or get killed after all. Kuruma taught her the ways of a Makai thief after his original partner died. Kuruma ditched her in a village when she was 13 since she was injured and couldn't keep up with him. That little experience left Kokutan miffed, more because he got away with the stolen goods not so much that she was dumped.

It was in the village that she met Tetsu, another kitsune. He was the only one close to her kind living in the village at the time and the only one who showed her kindness. He helped her with her injuries and even tried to help her find her father again, just so she could tell him off. When Kokutan was about 16 she and Tetsu became mates, she gave up thieving and settled into the fairly quiet village life. She and Tetsu were very close by the time they mated and bonded so that they could feel each other's thoughts and emotions.

Kokutan also became the village protector since she had been dealing with the more powerful demons as a thief. She knew most of their weaknesses already and was the best in fighting skills. However during a short trip to the well outside of the village, it was attacked in revenge for her stealing from a powerful demon lord. When Kokutan returned she was captured and forced to watch the violent death of Tetsu. Kokutan blacked out and was woken up 3 days later after all the dead had been buried.

Kokutan stopped eating and was pretty much walking around in a daze for a long time. She later found out she was pregnant with Tetsu's kits. She tried to keep her calm about her but ended up loosing the kits to stress and weakness. She moved out of her village after being forcibly kicked out and shunned by the other members living there. She tried living in the Makai for a while but was too weak generally after her whole ordeal that she left altogether and moved to the human world. She found Capow, and she likes it. She has no plans to leave although if she can muster the power she does go back and forth to the demon world.

[CHARACTER'S NAME:] Naomi Aotori, nickname Juni
[AGE:] 17
[STATUS:] Runaway experimental pilot/terrorist for OZ

[GENERAL APPEARANCE:]
Naomi is a half Japanese half American girl. She stands at 4'8" and is fairly thin. Her arms have a bit more muscle developed since she's had to control heavy firearms and pilot a large Gundam. Her hair is black and about shoulder length and she has gray eyes. She rarely wears make-up, except for plain lip-gloss.

[GENERAL CLOTHING:]
Naomi's basic wardrobe consists of boot cut jeans, black t-shirts, and heavy sneakers or boots. Stuffed in the back of her closet are a dress military uniform, crimson, and flight uniform, very much like a plug suit, black in color. Naomi carries a messenger bag typically draped around one shoulder, and a personal CD player.

[WEAPONRY:]
On her person, a 9mm once part of her dress uniform. She's kept it on for self-defense purposes, usually wearing a shoulder harness with a jacket over it. It goes with her almost everywhere. When threatened, her voice can serve as a high-pitched eardrum splitting shriek.

Her Gundam OZ-OOMS5 *no name was ever given to it* is a weapon only when someone is in it. The Gundam was never finished, so it has a portion of the weaponry it was supposed to carry. It came with 2 gattling guns, a beam sword and a vulcan gun.

However in Naomi's escape she used most of the ammo and completely lost power to the vulcan gun. It is easily piloted, and is the fastest developed Gundam.

[POWERS/SKILLS:]
Without the Gundam: a semi-trained terrorist, specializing in assassinations. Can sneak around with inhuman silence, and has an accurate aim, about 7/8 hitting her target directly. Moderate with computers. Great tracking skills, but those have now been reserved for cute guys. Naomi can also sing very well. And she can chug soda like no human can.

With the Gundam: Eh...she's still learning what’s what in her Gundam, since she only had one day of formal training, and a few weeks on her own. She knows how to fly it and can maneuver her way out of small or enclosed areas, but she's still awkward in using it. *Read: It may suddenly lurch or fall in mid-flight* Naomi's real skills kick in when she's under pressure, when she will become a ruthless and exacting pilot, however it’s more of a survival instinct.

[WEAKNESSES:]
Naomi doesn’t like face-to-face combat, and does poorly in it. She was trained as an assassin, and prefers to be hidden when attacking. Being in the Gundam cockpit allows her to feel hidden. Naomi has a complete weakness for music. Music drives her mood and she’s rarely without it. She is boy crazy, following whatever guy has caught her interest this week, until he dates her or enters the witness protection program. So, she has a little bit of a one-track mind. Naomi HATES digs about her height. She will mope for hours if teased.

[ATTITUDE:]
Naomi is a typical "genki" girl, with the occasional odd quirk. Naomi might suddenly start talking about her beloved mecha or stop mid-sentence to listen to a song, and then pick up where she left off. Naomi also secretly desires to be an idol singer, or at least PART of a Jpop group. She loves to sing, humming when not talking and may break out singing when she's really happy. She LOVES guys. Pity whatever guy she locks on to. Naomi also takes a lot before getting mad. She's upbeat, a little sarcastic at times, but generally a sweet girl. Sucks down Surge by the liter. Just don't mention her height.

[REACTIONS TO:]

{A GREETING:}Hiya! Wanna go for a quick flight?"

{A CHALLENGE:} *blinks* "Why?" *starts moving one hand towards her gun*

{AN ATTACK:}*try to duck, pull out gun, hit safety and fire* OR *Run like HELL towards her Gundam*

{A PASS:}
(*Cute guy* "HI! You're cute...wanna buy me a Coke?"
*Not-so-cute guy* "Um...well...buy me a drink and we'll talk."
*Girl* Lots of head shaking.

[BACKGROUND:]
Naomi was an orphan brought into the OZ army, at about age 9, in an attempt to make a perfect soldier. However instead of learning what she was supposed to, she became bored, since all she wanted was to be a normal girl. Her disinterest in fighting for OZ, led to her not paying CLOSE attention, thus not being as well trained as OZ had hoped, but still one of the more promising candidates, if not an erractic one. She really turned out to be a typical teenager, just one who knew how to pilot 50foot Gundams and track down high-ranking officials to kill them.

When she was issued her Gundam, OZ had hoped to spark something in her to continue her training. However after one day of formal training she flew the coop, Gundam and all. Naomi wanted her freedom from OZ and took out a couple of mobile suits in the process. More then anything she hated the forced learning and her number designation, which was 12 of 30. OZ fought to keep her only when they realized she was taking a Gundam with her. She never obtained high enough authority to get real secrets about OZ, but they DO want their Gundam back.

[ANIME INFLUENCES:]
Gundam Wing's Duo Maxwell, the big influence, but without the _love_ of fighting. EVA is in there somewhere, I think. Yuuki Miaka from Fushigi Yuugi and *oh dear lord* Kino Makoto from SailorMoon thrown in for good measure.
