PostSubject: Mairu's Character(s)!    Sun Mar 11, 2012 11:03 pm

Note: In a lot of ways, Nemon is a reflection of myself, with some added abilities and features of course. But her personality matches mine pretty realistically. Thought you might want to know~

Name: Kuraikara Nemon [暗いから 寝もん]

Gender: Female

Age: 17-18

Birthday: April 4th

Astrological Sign: Aries

Physical Description: Nemon is a teenage girl of seemingly normal height, about 5'6". Her physique is lean and a bit scrawny but even though she looks it, she's no weakling. Her skin is quite pale but has just enough color to look alive, especially her cheeks, which are known to blaze bright red if she is angry or embarrassed.

She has soft emerald green eyes, full of determination. Her eyelashes are fair and accent the green of her eyes very nicely. At times, the shade of her eyes may vary from their natural emerald hue to a more pine colored one. But typically, the darkening of her eyes happens during the night or when her personality is taking a turn for the dark...

Her hair is a fiery shade of red, and in fact much more red than 'red' hair usually is. Her hair is short and layered. About chin length in the front and on her bottom layer, her hair shortens in length towards the top layer, which falls to about the tip of her nose in length. At the base of her neck, she has allowed some of her hair to grow out. This odd hair style has resulted in a highly attractive braid, resting at full length by her hips. It is normally tied with a small ribbon of a pinkish shade, in the same color palette as her hair.

Her attire consists of a red tank top, covered by a black, long sleeved shirt that rests on the edges of her shoulders. In addition, she wears a light orange, short skirt made of two layers of ruffles, and a pair of black leggings. With her clothes, she wears either a short pair of black, high-heeled boots, or tall and furred white ones. She also occasionally accessorizes with matching pendants around her neck.


Personality: Nemon is a rebellious and determined girl; a natural-born leader with a free spirit and high hopes. Nothing can get in her way if she so wills it. She is generally cheerful and friendly, open to meeting all kinds of new people and never backs down from a challenge. Because of this, she can be rather reckless and gets in trouble often. She's a bit of a juvenile delinquent in that she hates following rules and gets into a lot of fights to defend her opinions or prove herself as a leader.

On the other hand, Nemon is the most loyal of friends. If she's on your side, you can be sure she will never let you down. She's the kind of person who would defend her friends to the death. The idea of betrayal disgusts her, so she deals with lying and untrustworthy fiends accordingly. She is an honest person, only telling lies when the life of her friends, or her own life, is on the line. But friends will always come first for her.


Occupation: Nemon is currently a free-lancing student. She is enrolled at Raira Academy, but rarely shows up. Even when she does, she never wears the uniform and is often kicked out for her attire and defiance anyway. She is however, looking for a permanent or semi-permanent job in the field of defense/offense or protection. Though, she will accept whatever opportunity comes her way.

Background: Nemon is the child of an Irish mother and a Japanese father. Her father was a bodyguard and taught her much of what she knows about self-defense and fighting tactics. Her mother was a powerful and proud woman. She was a leader amongst those she was close too and Nemon aspired to be just like her. The family lived in a simple apartment in Ikebukuro while Nemon was growing up, but as her father's job moved, so did the family.

She spent time in America, France, England, Ireland, and many different parts of Japan over her childhood. But getting moved around so often, she never really cared to learn much about the culture of many of her temporary homes. The family finally moved back to Ikebukuro after twelve years of traveling, only to be struck by tragedy.

Nemon's mother was struck by a hereditary disease that ran in her family. Her deterioration was subtle at first, and she hid the illness from her husband and child, but after a couple of months, her condition took a turn for the worse and she was hospitalized. Another month later and she passed away. For a few weeks after, everything seemed heavy for Nemon and her father. But being young and ambitious, it didn't take too long for Nemon to recover from her mother's loss. Her father was a completely different story. He often skipped work and stayed home during the day. He became distant and the bond between the father and daughter began to fade. No amount of encouraging words could make it through her father's thick skull. Nemon finally gave up on him and let him be; an unfortunate decision that she would regret in her near future.

Nemon's father eventually had to return to his work to keep the bills paid and the family fed. When he did, he was still out of sorts. He was a sad reflection of his former watchful and quick-witted self. He seemed almost lifeless, oftentimes in a daze, not even acknowledging the busy hum of cars on the street. He was completely caught off guard when, making a transfer of his client across town, their escort group was ambushed in an Ikebukuro back alley. While he managed to bring the first few to the ground, one of the enduring attackers made a sneak attack, thrusting a knife through the man's chest. The damage to his heart, both physically and possibly emotionally, was too great and he quickly passed.

While her father did practically nothing to support her after her mother's death, Nemon had spent little time in her own home, doing her best to hold her own in the city. She'd been taking odd jobs of all sorts and spent many nights with friends rather than in her own bed. When the news of her father's sudden death reached her, she was more surprised than saddened. Surprise grew to anger as she scolded herself for not paying more attention to him. Her father's boss was kind enough to offer the girl a place in his home, but she politely refused. Instead, the two made a compromise. Nemon would take any jobs he offered her, and in return, he would pay for her standard living expenses. She searched for an additional job and applied for Raira Academy. Despite her careless attitude toward school, Nemon is highly intelligent, and she tested into the top of her class. But nearly two years since her father's death, her attendance remains patchy. She wishes to support herself instead of living off her benefactor and is dedicated to her work.


Weapons: Other than her self-defense skills in hand to hand combat, Nemon often carries around a short black katana, about seven inches in length. It fits nicely into her boots and can be easily hidden.

Fighting Style: She has taken no particular martial art style but appears to use a mix of karate, kung fu, and taijutsu in self defense. She prefers speed over strength and targets the most vital body parts first. She will try to finish a fight in the shortest amount of time possible, making fighting several opponents an easy task.

Strengths: Speed, Agility, Accuracy, Stunning Senses, and Intelligence.

Weaknesses: Aggravation, Confusion, Blind Anger, Recklessness, and Temper.

Likes: Family, Friends, Kaede, Nature, Nighttime, Practice Spars, Challenges, and Having Fun.

Dislikes: Rules, School, Enemies, Distrustful Bastards and Bitches, Cowards, Hospitals, Medical Staff, and Needles...especially Needles.

Family Members: Kuraikara Renji-father [deceased], Kuraikara Eíreann-mother [deceased].

Pets: Kaede-a male wolf/dog [red-gray pelt with white underbelly and accents-wears a black bandanna around his right frontal paw-Nemon treats him more like a sibling than a pet.]; Jagger-a male gray squirrel [wears a small red bandanna around his neck-often sits on Nemon's shoulder.]

Gang: None, currently.

What brings them to Ikebukuro?: It's where she first lived and lives now. She loves this city for its bustling activity and dangerous atmosphere. There's no limit to what challenges she can find and what jobs she can take.


Sample Roleplay/Introduction:

    〈〈 ↢ ♈ ↣ 〉〉

    A redheaded teen balanced on the balcony railing of her small Ikebukuro apartment. Her long braid blew about behind her in the wind as her emerald eyes scanned the horizon. Night was approaching, and with the night, came the darkness. The darkness within the girl was a feature she preferred to hide during the day, but her bloodthirsty instincts couldn't be contained as the moon took control. Even so, she loved the night. It was quiet, peaceful... As long as she kept herself under control. The short howl of a canine from the streets below interrupted her momentary peace. Her gleaming irises now changing to a darker hue, one that reflected the color of pine trees in the North, she turned her gaze downward to observe the creature.

    The familiar sight brought a grin to her lips. It was her loyal canine companion, a wolf-dog she'd named Kaede after the color of his fur. It was maple red in color, dappled with patches of gray and a white underbelly and accents. He looked similar to a husky with his fluffy coat and slightly curled tail. The black bandanna around his right frontal paw gave her additional clarity to his identity. It was her gift to him; a constant reminder of the sibling-like bond they shared.

    She leaped from the balcony and took her place beside him, following him through the city streets as the sunlight faded from view. This was how she spent most nights, hunting with her beloved friend. But it hadn't always been like this. For a time, she lived life as a normal human girl, but with her coming of age so close at hand, she was beginning to witness the full potential of her bloodline.


    'My name is Kuraikara Nemon. I'm quickly approaching my eighteenth birthday, my coming of age. I was a normal human girl until I turned sixteen. That's when the changes happened. I started developing canine habits, like asserting my right as the "alpha" child amongst my classmates, growling when I got angry, chasing after small mammals in the park... That one was pretty hard to explain... But anyways, I've inherited some special abilities from my mother's bloodline. Abilities attributed to the most majestic of night creatures, the wolf. I can run faster, jump higher, and continue on in practically any activity hours longer than my friends. I can also communicate with canines telepathically and recently, I've been able to turn into a canine myself, but I'm still getting used to the fur... By the time my eighteenth birthday comes along, I'll have inherited all my abilities, and I'll no longer be a "normal" kid. But when I think about it... I never really was "normal."'

    Nemon whistled to Kaede, catching his attention as they approached the edge of town. Police often patrolled the city borders, watching for any suspicious activities that might relate to the many gangs around the city. There'd been a lot more activity recently, so the lookouts were posted more frequently, especially around this time of night. The pine colored disks of her eyes narrowed as she scanned the area for a safe route into the wilderness beyond. For a few seconds, it seemed hopeless, until she spotted an unattended patch of ground between a couple of deteriorating buildings. She felt a rush of adrenaline in her blood, a desire to spring forth into the open as she locked eyes with the silent canine beside her.

    'We'll make a dash through the scrape of land over there... It's unattended at the moment, but there are cops all around, so we'll have to be quick. Wait 'til I say the word...then we'll go for it.'

    Kaede nodded in understanding, his practically neon yellow eyes brimming with the same conceiled excitement that blazed through that of his "sister". His ears flicked backwards as he lowered his stance, preparing to jolt forward. Nemon followed his lead, positioning herself in the same stance as an Olympic runner would have used, and it was ironically appropriate, seeing as how she could easily match the speed of one with her enhanced performance. She waited for the perfect moment. Once both guards turned their backs, she inhaled a tight breath and focused her eyes on her goal, the line of trees just beyond them.

    "We go... Now!!"

    With a burst of power her legs sprung forward, launching her in an impressive sprint towards their goal. Kaede easily kept pace beside her, paws pounding beside feet. The stunned guards had no chance to react, catching a glimpse of pair only after they'd passed the border. With a smirk splayed across her features, Nemon jumped through the line of trees, content at last in the wide span of unsupervised forest. Free from restraints, rules, and restrictions, she leaned back against a tree and looked up to the starry sky, catching her breath. If every night was like this, maybe being such an outcast from the everyday wouldn't be so bad after all.

She seems very interesting and a fun and creative character. However, I'm not 100% on the idea of her having a sniper rifle. I know regular civilians in Japan are not allowed to own firearms, and I'm not sure anyone could really smuggle a weapon like that into the country. Then again, we do have some other seemingly impossible characters both canon and OC on here. So I'm going to wait and see what the other mods and/or admins have to say. Other than that issue though, very good job. ;3

I think that deleting the fire arms part did nothing to hurt the character. She's still beautifully developed and has a detailed back story (though the whole deceased parents thing is so overdone. But sometimes tragic things must happen to make a character XD) All in all, I think you've done a wonderful job and she seems very interesting. I approve of her. What does Ren think?

Lol. I totally agree with you Psyche. I also think she's a very neat character. I'm excited to see what she'll bring to the forum. I also approve. ;3
