I hope this came out as good as I hoped. And I hope none of my assumptions and leaps of faith are wrong/troublesome for people. Since District 6 is transport, I assumed that it trains pilots/drivers as well as the mechanics that build and repair all the vehicles. Also assuming that District 6 has a slightly better chance at living better for certain people, since rich folk LOVE their fancy vehicles. In terms of skills, Eun Mi is more of an artist and a swimmer than anything else. She'll be able to hold her breath longer than the other contestants, and swim better . . but that's about it. Here's hoping there's a deep river or lake for her in the arena!
(Wow, she did come out a little bit sneaky/sociopathic-y than I intended, huh?)Name:
Ha Eun MiDivision:
Very lightly tanned, clearDistinguishing Marks:
Nothing outstanding/obviousPhysical Description:
Eun Mi is a short, but pretty young woman of Korean ancestry. Save for the fairly impressive bust she has, she's a lithe mass of muscle, her body well-formed from years of swimming and working on vehicle parts. She always seems to be calm, kind, and smiling when one sees her, coming off as a very controlled and graceful individual. In the end though, she's just not as strong or fast as the more prepared Tributes. She can probably swim better and hold her breath longer, though.Likes:
The water. ALL of the water. She's also a big fan of tea, and some of the finer things in life. You'd be amazed at the presents you get from people, when you make their expensive little luxury boats and cars just a little prettier than normal.Dislikes:
The heat. Overly emotional outbursts and 'wild' people. Spicy food.Fears:
Eun Mi gets scared like everyone else . . but not by anything specific. She's just better at dealing with it than most, and not panicking out of fright.Personality:
Eun Mi is the calmest condemned girl around. Even when she was younger she was praised for being mature, and calm, while her siblings were childish and wild. Having made peace with the fact that she is being sent to her death, she's just planning on taking advantage of the situation for as long as possible. That's not to say that she doesn't want to win, but she's just being realistic about it. Eun Mi finds herself surprisingly okay with the fact that she's going to possibly kill someone, and is a little worried that this might mean that she has some sociopathic tendancies. She's a good worker, but merely to earn more creature comforts, being a little greedy and indulgant. In the end she might be better suited as an actress, than a construction worker.History:
Eun Mi is the oldest daughter of a family of four siblings, all working in the transportation district, all with wildly different leanings in terms of what they do. Her mother and father are both airship pilots, while her three siblings are leaning towards construction or piloting for all manner of different vehicles. Eun Mi? She likes boats. Mainly because of her love of the ocean.
After a trip to the edge of the district while deciding what she wanted to focus on doing early on, she chose to work at the sea-side docks, to build boats. Her talent at working underwater, and artistic flair, lead to her quickly making a name for herself at personalizing and repairing those expensive boats and liners the rich Citizens do so love. Ever since she was 15 she'd worked hard to impress them, catering to every absurd personal request. You want a mermaid crafted onto the bow of your speedboat, like an old-timey pirate ship? Sure. You and waterproof gold filigree along the bottom, so even when underwater you can see how stupidly rich you are? Not a problem.
The problem came with a bit of jealousy, and some complaints from her contemporaries. She was clearly getting preferential treatment, and it was entirely unfair. Eun Mi just happened to be sneaking around where she shouldn't be, and overheard that at the end of the fiscal year, she'd be moved to another section in order to try and quell the troubles. She'd be damned if she was going to let them keep her away from the ocean, so she made a decision. That year, her family ate very, VERY well . . because Eun Mi dropped her name into the bowl as many extra times as they'd let her.
Needless to say, the other crafters were aghast at this. She was so callous as to just drop her name repeatedly, to get extra supplies that her family didn't even really need? The worst thing of all came on selection day, when Eun Mi wasn't picked as the female Tribute. Irony of ironies, the only daughter of the man that originally accused Eun Mi of preferrential treatment was chosen. Imagine her surprise when Eun Mi patted the girl on the shoulder, and calmly walked up to the dais with a smile on her face."I volunteer to be tribute, so my friend can stay safe for another year."
