So sorry it took so long everyone! I feel so guilty...
I changed a lot about her, so I may come back later and tweak a few things if something doesn't make sense. I just wrote things that came to my head first and made sense, so if anything is amiss, I'll fix it.Name:
Kimmy Howell Titles (If Applicable):
Travis the Great’s #1 FanProfession/s (If Applicable, besides Assassin):
College Dropout, Freelance assassinAge:
Born in Britain, but has lived in America most of her life. Considers herself American. Relatives (If Applicable):
None worth mentioning.Appearance:
Kimmy has matured over the past 3 years, growing into a respectable woman. While keeping the cute, nervous look she had when she first fought Travis, Kimmy’s body has noticeably matured, now flaunting well developed curves and respectable breast and but size. Her outfit this time around is a feminized version of the outfit Travis wore when he first entered the UAA (all thanks to the guy from Planet 51, who custom-made the outfit for her). She now wears a light red jacket with tiger print going down the back, but is not as long as Travis’ jacket and only reaches 3/4s down her back. She wears an old Bizzare White Jelly underneath the jacket, which is torn and exposes some of her midriff. She also wears ripped jean short-shorts, a brown glove, and sneakers. She still has her hair in two braided pigtails, but they are much longer now.Reference imageBackstory/History:
While the United Assassins Association is the biggest company that handles professional assassination business, it is not the only organization that handles assassin activity. There are many smaller, more secluded companies and syndicates that also run their own assassin businesses, and are located across the globe. None of these associations get much attention however, as they are all overshadowed by the UAA. They are usually inferior in strength, wealth, and diversity and the assassins that are members of these associations are usually below par when it comes to strength. Because of this, the assassins are almost always overlooked by employers and the higher ups at the UAA, and it was very hard to be noticed.
Kimmy Howell, however, was one of the lucky few that caught the eye of the magnificent UAA. Winning a tournament for young assassins, Kimmy proved herself worthy with the blood of countless young assassins like herself. No one was more determined, more vicious, more blood thirsty in that tournament than her. Her climb to the top came at a surprise to the ones following the tourney, as no one expected the shy, geeky girl to go far with only a recorder in hand. There must be something more to her, they thought. There must be something driving her on, a goal that no other assassin in that tournament could stand up against.
A couple years before Kimmy won the tournament, a man names Travis Touchdown climbed the ranks of the UAA, the most popular assassin organization in the United States. At the time of his rise to the top, Kimmy had developed an interest in the assassin business (at that point, purely out of curiosity), and followed his journey since the beginning. After he became #1, Kimmy developed a deep love for Travis, and dedicated her life to chasing him.
This was no simple crush, either. Kimmy determined that in order to get closer to her idol, she had to become an assassin herself. Looking towards multiple teachers for guidance, Kimmy quickly realized her potential as an assassin. She managed to master forms and techniques that took others years to learn. She constantly neglected her studies to train and learn, and all the while becoming more obsessed with her idol. Her lust for Travis became an obsession to the point of insanity. She had to prove to him that she was his #1 fan, that there was no one else in this world that loved him more than she did. And what better way to express those feelings than in a language in which they were both fluent? The only way Travis could understand her unique passion for him was to kill him. There was no other way!
After Kimmy won the tournament, she was admitted into the UAA, the assassin organization hosting Travis, who had re-entered the assassination scene and was once again on the rise. Anxious to finally confront her idol, Kimmy challenged Travis soon after she was admitted into the ranks.
The fated encounter took place at the then-damaged Santa Destroy University. After Kimmy gave Travis a love letter explaining her feelings for him and desire to kill him, the two fought. Fighting the nervous feelings in the pit of her stomach, Kimmy clashed with Travis with all her might. It was by far the hardest battle she had ever experienced, which was expected from her idol. But she was still green when compared to Travis, and was ultimately defeated, to Kimmy’s despair. She was knocked unconscious by Travis’ suplex right after her last ditch effort to win, but not before she watched her idol walk away in disgust.
Kimmy fell into a deep depression after the fight. She had lost to her idol, and failed to prove that she was his #1 fan. Her depression soon turned into pure insanity, as her obsession for Travis went to a whole new level. She went on chaotic killing sprees on her assassination jobs, and killed anyone that came across as a threat to Travis’ life. The thought of killing Travis and anyone who threatened her love were cut down in an insane rampage. The farther Travis Touchdown rose through the ranks, the farther Kimmy fell into the darkness…
She was about to be engulfed in that same darkness, if it wasn’t for a fateful encounter with a person who claimed to be close to Travis. This person, who was no longer part of the human world, showed her the error of her ways and guided her back on the right path, the path of a true assassin. For a short time Kimmy learned from this spirit the meaning of fighting and that everyone must follow their own “path” to “discover why one must become strong”. Before the spirit left, Kimmy promised him that she would continue to chase after Travis, for that was her “path to become strong”.
Having regained her sanity (or what little she had in the first place), Kimmy devoted herself to fighting in the name of Travis Touchdown, instead of trying to kill him. After Travis was arrested under ridiculous charges, Kimmy resurfaced on the assassin scene as a freelance assassin, taking it upon herself to pick up where Travis left off and became a “protector of peace” of some sort. Aquainting herself with Travis’ old friends, Kimmy bought a custom-made Travis Touchdown cosplayer outfit from the guy at Planet 51, and requested the creation of a new weapon from Naomi, requesting that it would “look like something Travis would use”. She moved into the No More Heroes motel (right next to Travis’ apartment, coincidentally), and while Travis was gone took care of his apartment, doing things like paying his rent, feeding Jeane, and keeping the place tidy. Travis has yet to know that Kimmy lives just next door to him, but Kimmy hopes that when the time comes for Travis to return that she will be able to welcome him with open arms.Personality:
The most obvious trait that Kimmy has is her obsession for Travis Touchdown, as she claims that she is his #1 fan. Ever since he first arrived on the assassin scene, Kimmy has been in love with Travis to the point of insanity, going so far as to attempt to kill him to prove to him that she loved him the most. While she has grown out of that phase over the past years, she is still obsessed with Travis and has redirected her desires to kill him into more productive ways to express herself. She has now tried to mimic him in multiple ways, including appearance and morals. She is still as timid and nervous as she was 3 years ago however, and still possesses some of the personality perks that she had when she first met Travis (such as occasionally talking in text speak).Weapon/s Of Choice:
The Tsubaki-Heavenly Star crossover beam katana, also known as Tsubaki Mk IV. Made shortly after Travis’ arrest, Naomi custom created this weapon for Kimmy to not only resemble Travis’ weapons of choice, but also that also resembled and functioned like Kimmy’s old weapon, the Heavenly Star. A duel bladed weapon, the Tsubaki-Heavenly Star’s hilt is silvery in color and can be comparable to the Tsubaki prototype in appearance. Blue colored blades are released from each side of the hilt without the aid of a receiver. Like the Heavenly Star, the hilt also functions as a recorder, which allows Kimmy not only to play harmonic tunes through one end, but also allows her to blow explosive bubbles through the other end. Abilities & Powers (If Applicable)/Combat Skills:
Ever since she entered the assassin business, Kimmy has been known for both her skill in battle and her large amount of latent potential. While lacking brute strength and destructive power, Kimmy more than makes up for it with her great and fluid skill with the beam katana and her agility in combat. She has been trained in using dual sided beam katanas, which can easily overwhelm her opponents. She also uses large destructive bubbles at range that explode on contact, and pack quite a punch (but they are quite slow in speed).
Kimmy’s latent potential and talent for the assassin business has also made her well known among assassins. She has claimed to have the ability to learn techniques in one day that would take any other person years to master.
She is also skilled at playing the recorder.
