MCsc, the character is pretty good, but the reason she has been sold by her parents does not make much sense. Its quite possible for her father to make her a slave as well (as he did with her mother), but not treat her like one and to either keep her at home or get her some work (slaves do most of the non-specialist jobs in the world), so if her family were so much against the idea of slavery there isn't, in fact, any need to sell her and parents who were that anti-slavery I am sure would rather go destitute and struggle to the very borderline of starvation than sell their own daughter. I am sure that other families in their neighbourhood or the wider extended family could also help financially so I think we need a different reason here for Nonami to have been sold or entered slavery.
Thankyou! I guess I wrote her up a little quickly though, I wasn't trying to imply her parents sold her. I guess I should have started with a rough draft on my PC and then gave her a fresh look the day after, oh well lesson learned.
I was trying to say she had been enslaved when she wasn't able to pay to her freewoman tax because she had spent that money bailing out her parents instead. She wouldn't have told her parents about it though since they probably wouldn't have accepted the money if they knew she was taking the risk.
Anyways, let me make some changes . . . Character Image:

))1.2.3.If slave, state owner:
Height: 1.57m // 5ft 2in
Measurements: 89-59-80 (cm)Background and Personality Notes:
Nonami is the only child of Yoshimazu and Tokuko Kitigani, a loving Japanese couple who strongly opposed the passage of the compulsory female slavery act their homeland. The Kitigani's outspoken opposition to the new laws left them somewhat isolated and alienated from friends relatives and neighbors, especially in a country where conformity is a valued trait among one's associations. Being in the minority the Kitigani's found their efforts to stop the spread of compulsory female slavery to their country futile and once legislature was signed they like any others who had attempted to stop legislation were forced to live under the new regime.
The Kitigani's were fairly poor compared to the average Japanese, they could provide for their family of three's basic needs, but found the taxation of freewomen would be much more expensive. After much Discussion Tokuko was able to convince Yoshimazu to, reluctantly, register her as his slave, this way the money saved from paying Tokuko's freewoman tax could instead be used to ensure their daughter Nonami would never be a slave to a strange man.
Nearly a teen when Japan joined the compulsory female slavery club, Nonami was able to observe and recognize the differences to society from before and after the passage of the new laws. She may have been too young to be enslaved herself and her parents may have scrounged and saved the money to send Nonami to a special school instead of one of the new 'slave-ed' public school institutions for females, but there was no hiding the obvious changes to society from Nonami. The contrast between public life, where women were regarded as property and servants, and home life, where Nonami's father treated her mother with the respect of an equal despite Tokuko's collar, was very clear to Nonami. As Nonami questioned this her parents made certain to imbue a strong belief against slavery and especially compulsory female subjugation within her. Nonami grew up believing in female independence and could be called a feminist in a day where there were none.
On her eighteenth birthday Nonami and her father went to the BFA office to ensure her freewoman status was secure. The procedure was somewhat humiliating for her and she felt it wrong that women should be forced to protect their rights this way, but she put up with the demands of the modern worlds oppressive regime. With her private school education Nonami was able to attend a college, though it was a community college and not a university, as few females if any were admitted to university these days. Nonami also got a part time job which allowed her to save up some money as well as pay the taxation on freewomen.
Nonami spent two years in school and achieved a bachelors degree, though recognition for females who receive degrees is less grand than recognition for males. As she began her third year of schooling Nonami's parents came fell across some financial troubles, Yoshimazu, her father, lost his job and her mother's job wasn't enough to pay the bills. As the year progressed Nonami's father found it a challenging find a new job and the debts began mounting. Nonami began to feel concerned her father may have to sell her mother to pay the bills, Nonami decided to offer her parents the money to pay their debts. Her parents were reluctant and at first turned her down, but she managed to convince them by lying about how much money she had, they believed her having always taught her to be a shrewd and thrifty spender. The truth was however she spent the money she was saving for her yearly freewoman tax to ensure her parents wouldn't be separated by the need to pay their debts. Nonami hoped the BFA wouldn't notice right away that she was late for her payment but she had no such luck, the very day after her due date, before she had the opportunity to leave her apartment in the morning officers of the BFA were at her door taking her into government possession to take her away for slave training.
Nonami was raised by her parents who strongly disapproved of the moderns worlds compulsory female slavery laws. Despite their disapproval however, Nonami's mother was registered as her husbands property in the hopes that the money the couple saved on Nonami's mother's freewoman taxation could be used to ensure Nonami remained a freewoman instead. Nonami was nearly in her teens when Japan boarded the compulsory female slavery boat, she remembers clearly the changes to society in the weeks and months following the passage of legislature. At home life may as well have been same since Nonami's parents had always been a loving couple, the only real difference after the laws passage was that Nonami's mother wore a slave's collar now. Though things were the same at home it couldn't be hidden from Nonami the way her mother was regarded differently by others, especially men, in public. Like everyone else Nonami was forced to adapt to the new society and get along with the changes, Nonami's parents still taught her all that had happened was wrong however and Nonami was imbued with a strong distaste towards the compulsory enslavement of womankind. Since being enslaved herself however Nonami has learned to sublimate her feelings against slavery and conform to the standards of subservience the BFA expects of her. Nonami serves, obeys and smiles for men as their servant, but inside she harbors a deep resentment towards slavery.
So I've mostly left the character the same, just elaborated a bit more on what I was originally intending for her since I think I wasn't clear originally. If this is fine then great! If not, then I can modify her further in accordance with your critique. Thanks!
EDIT: The Personality part is the same, but the background is all new.
Thanks for helping bro. :)
Well perhaps this is lucky timing then since I'm just adding a slavegirl now. What were you planning on for you Dom? Perhaps our characters would match.
