[CHARACTER'S NAME:] Jay Arisugawa
[ALIASES:] Jay-kun. (Sensei) Alice. (Yugo) Aokekesu-san. (Mayumi)
[AGE:] 16
[SEX:] Male
[HAIR/EYE COLOURS:] light brown / brown
[STATUS:] High School Student (11th grade)/Kendo Student

[GENERAL APPEARANCE:]
Medium built. Around 56". He styles a short ponytail (Battosai style. Not Kenshin, think battosai..More evil >:P), and two bangs (Something like Squall :P) He looks serious most of the time; A "cold", quiet attitude.

[GENERAL CLOTHING:]
Baggy clothes. He hates wearing his school uniform, but is often seen in it. At the dojo he wears a ceremonial or training kimono, as a rule.

[WEAPONRY:]
Jay studies Iaido/kendo/batto-do , so his weapon of choise it the katana. (He can't really use anything else right...), especializing in Hiten Mitsurugi Ryu (The Flying Heaven's Honorable Sword School) and Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu Iaido.

(Kendo is figthing with the sword drawn, Iaido is drawing the sword, slashing, and returning the sword to the scabbard. Just in case you don't know ^_^ )

[POWERS/SKILLS:]
Jay has the power of the dragon of light (Hikari-ryuu) somewhere hidden in his mind, but it rarely ever shows itself. When it does, Jay turns into the perfect killing machine (Hitokiri battosai reincarnation), also being able to use the light element to help him in battle, using it to blind his foes, shileding himself, or hurting his enemies slightly.

Other than that, he's just like any other teenager. Likes sports, and draws rather well.

[WEAKNESSES:]
Jay's rather shy, and hides his feelings behind his cold attitude most of the time. He has been trained to trust no one, and that can sometimes be a problem.

As for his elemental powers, he still hasn't been able to control or understand them, but that's what he's in CAPOW for.

So far he's only been able to make minor energy blasts (Not in real battle, mind you), and small but somewhat useful tricks. (Mostly blinding and a light shield.) His elemental powers also enhance his figthing abilities, but only for s short while. After that Jay is physically and mentally worn out. [ATTITUDE:]
Jay acts cold and quiet, almost sad, most of the time, but only because of his shyness. He's usually happy and cheerful around his friends, around people he trusts.

[BACKGROUND:]
Jay was born in Kyoto under a good family. His father moved to Canada because of his job, and his mother still lives in Kyoto. (He visits her when he can.)

His mother wanted him to learn martial arts, and the way of the sword had always interested her, so she put Jay under the hands of Seishin Ono, Master of the most famous Dojo in Kyoto, when he was 6 years old.

The training completely changed him into an apparently cold, heartless person, but he was only following his master's teachings. "Hunt as a loner, that way you won't hurt the people around you, the people you love."

Jay was tranfered because of his high grades, (And his elemental powers), and now studies in a private school located in CAPOW. (One of the hardest schools in Japan.) Not only do they teach, but train their students for official jobs. (Military, Political, etc.)

Not wanting to spoil his kendo training, he was one of the first students to sign in the small Dojo in CAPOW. There he lives with his new sensei, Yugo, and Mayumi; His new family.

Jay has developed strong feelings towards Mayumi, but his shy attitude hasn't let him tell her.

[QUOTES:]
"...."
"Calm down... You need a cool mind at all times..remember that..!"
"The only thing I trust in this world is my blade..."
"YUGO! LEAVE THAT GIRL ALONE!" >_<
"There's always a counterpart for everything and everyone in this world.. That's why I don't like getting involved in anything that doesn't concer me."

[CHARACTER'S NAME:] Mayumi Watanabe
[ALIASES:] Mayu-chan. (Sensei) Mayu-dono. (Jay) Honeybunch. (Yugo)
[AGE:] 14
[GENDER:] Female
[HAIR/EYE COLORS:] Black hair / Purple eyes.
[STATUS:] High school student, (8th grade). Student at the Kendo Dojo.

[GENERAL APPEARANCE:]
She styles her shoulder-length hair in a neatly done ponytail most of the time, using a small dark purple bow. You could say she's beautiful to most guys, (Not like Alzena but..). Smiling most of the time.

[GENERAL CLOTHING:]
Mayumi usually wears baggy clothing, or space pants and a t-shirt, if not her sailor style school uniform. (She likes to wear her skirt _short_. ;P). Anything that she thinks makes her look cute. When at the dojo, she usually wears her ocean blue kimono with sakuras in it, or her plain white training kimono.

[WEAPONRY:]
Mayumi isn't too good at figthing (Even if she _is_ Toshiro-sama (Sensei)'s granddaugther, and always avoids battle. But if worse comes to worse, she'll defend herself with anything that she can find.

[POWERS/SKILLS:]
Mayumi enjoys cooking more than anything in the whole world. And she's pretty good at it too. She cooks dinner at the dojo most of the time, (Usually charging the other students for their meals).

Her cooking is the total opposite of Akane's. :P

She's also very good with kids, and enjoys babysitting them..most of the time.. ^^;; (Ah, motherly instincts.. ^_-)

[WEAKNESSES:]
She's actually a soft-hearted sentimental. She tries to hide it acting always happy and tough, and rarely opens up to others.

Can be usually bribed with chocolate bars, (or anything containing chocolate, for that matter.)

Aside, there's always her heart-sickness. Even if the doctors say she should be alright now, and she has totally recovered, she usually can't be too startled. (She won't die, just loose consiousness...)

Hence Jay's special care for her.. ;)

[ATTITUDE:]
Mayumi looks at the bright side of things most of the time. Always cheerful. She often tries to cheer her friends up if they're sad, succeding most of the time.

Her attitude would make anyone smile.

Of course...there are days when she's the total opposite... Ah, girls are like that...nee..

[REACTIONS TO:]

{A GREETING:}
(From sensei:) Genki desu ka? *Bows humbly*
(Anyone else:) *Smiles* How's life treating you?

{A CHALLENGE:} M-me?! Wh-what did I do?!

{AN ATTACK:} AAIIYEEEE!!!! *Runs for it, avoiding the hit most of the time.* *Sometimes she faints, tho..*

{A PASS:} *Blush* U-uh.. *Short Silence* _SOOooo_...!! *^_~*

[BACKGROUND:]
Mayumi's mother died giving her birth for she suffered heart disease, and couldn't take the labor, and her father works as an official for the Japanese army. (Intelligence Dept.) Since he rarely gets time off from his work, her grandfather has raised her. Both Mayumi and her grandfather lived in Akita (Known for having the cutest japanese girls around); Sensei moved to Tokyo, where he works on the outskirts of CAPOW, teaching in his dojo. Mayumi stayed in Akita receiving medical treatment, since she inhereted her mothers dissease. Recently the doctors told her she was free to go, since her heart should now be strong enough. She recently traveled to Tokyo to help her grandfather with the dojo.

Her father got her into the Special privato school in CAPOW, where she wishes to follow her fathers footsteps and work in intelligence when she graduates.

Jay and Yugo are her best friends so far in CAPOW, and she's always taking care of them (Or so she says ^^;). She studies at the same private high school as Jay, and has developed a crush on him. She doesn't have the nerve to tell him though.

[QUOTES:]
"Sometimes the best thing about living is just being alive, dont you think?" *Warm smile*
"OJIISAAAANNNN!! TASUKETTEEEEE!" =O_O=
"....Leave. Me. Alone!" >.<
"Smile!" ^o^

[AGE:] 72
[GENDER:] Male
[HAIR/EYE COLORS:] White hair / Dark red eyes.
[STATUS:] Current master of the Kendo dojo in CAPOW.

[GENERAL APPEARANCE:]
Toshi-sama looks like your avarage elder man. Wrinkles, and a air of wisdom around him. He's usually in a good mood, laughing most of the time. (Runs in the family I guess..)

(You don't want to see him mad though...)

[GENERAL CLOTHING:]
Sensei is usually in him black kimono. If not, he wears a suit with a red tie. (Goes with his eyes :P).

[WEAPONRY:]
Sensei is feared around the world for his incredible figthing skills, he has studied almost evey martial there could be during his life-time, so he can easily use any weapon at hand. (From a butter knife to a rocket launcher :P)

[POWERS/SKILLS:]
Sensei has no powers, but he makes up for them with his skill with any weapon. (As stated before).

He rarely figths, so his inner power is rarely seen.

He has an incredible sense of humor, and outstanding leadership skills.

Sensei rathers let his students take care of his own battles, making him look like a 'fraidycat...

"Why should I figth when I have so..Um.. Strong students! hehe... /Besides, Im to old for this../ *Sweatdrop* Besides, there's other people in this world...ne?!"

[WEAKNESSES:]
His granddaugther is his number one weakness, since she is what he loves most in the whole world. He wont risk himself for his students, he doesnt care about the country, but he'll do _anything_ is Mayumi's in danger. Other than that, he's useless when drunk. (Sake for breakfast, sake for lunch...and so ooonnn...)

[ATTITUDE:]
Like everyone in the Watanabe clan, Sensei is a jolly old man, always willing to burst out laughing at mostly anything. He's rarely sad or angry, but it isn't a pretty sigth when he is.

Sensei takes advantage of anything and everyone in the world, (Mayumi being the only exception).

(Then he takes out some chopsticks, knocks his enemy out with them, and, with a red marker, draws BAKA BAKA HENTAI on their faces.. ^.^;)

{A PASS:}
*Wide grin* You talking to me, m'lady?
from a guy: *WHAM WHAM WHAM* O_O;;;;; Y-Yugo!!! Help!
