You might remember me from a few days ago, here's an idea for a Native:
Race: Fox-Shark hybrid.
Personality: Reshiko is strong, confident and more than a little devious, while no means a criminal mastermind or an Evil Genius, she definitely wants to make more of herself than some lord's errand boy, she wants to rule. In a word, she's Ambitious, in many.. she's crafty, sneaky not afraid to stack the deck. Her Geisha training has also lead her to be a bit of a flirt, a tease and occasionally.. alright, more than occasionally to her Geisha trainers eternal dismay, a bit of a promiscuous slut. She always did excel at assassination though.. typically while in someone's bedsheets.
She lives by the motto, “those with power make the rules.” and she's always looking to be the one with all the power.
Habits: She's always on the lookout for the next big deal, her next great opportunity to catapult her way into the throne of some kingdom. She also trains habitually in the mornings to keep her skills the best, at night she tends to train in someone's bed, if she can get them there. Since knowledge is power, she's often pouring over some book... usually a treasure map.
Likes: someone who can keep up with her schemes, having a fall guy, people who understand her need for power..
Loves: Money, power, and anything that can get her such. When she's alone or in the company of friends she might even let her love of the finer things in life slip... you know the stuff, fine jewlery, fine weapons, food and drink.
Dislikes: The holier-than-thou types, being forced to play fair (she often will find a way to tip the scales in her favor regardless) people who try to get her to go on the moral high ground.
Background: Reshiko was born to a special class of society in her land, the elite group of warriors who ended wars with a single knife, or changed the history of nations with an arrow. They were followers of the way of the shadows. A secretive band of brothers and sisters who were taught to obey their lieges without question, and get the job done no matter the cost. But even more than that she was a female among those ranks, while not a rarity itself it did leave a mark on her training as she not only mastered the blade, but also the way of the Geisha for many, many years before her teachers realized the ambition the girl hid would not be tempered by mere oaths of loyalty and obedience, no this girl desired power even beyond that which the gods had granted her by birth. Of course, they learned this when she attempted to take over the school and learn the forbidden arts of the masters, but a few dead students, and a revolt that was quickly put down, were no matter for the kings and queens of the land. She was sentenced to be executed, but escaped into the wider world. Perhaps now she could make something of herself.
Skills: Short and long range combat (Mainly Swords, kunai with chain, Bow and Arrow) 'wet' work, (Daggers Kunai, ect. Fans.) subterfuge, acrobatics, seduction (Mainly in the form of High class work as a Geisha might know), horseback riding, Ninjitsu.
Things they find difficult: Treasure, money, wealth, the mention of a rare knowledge or artifacts of power..these are things she just can't ignore. While she won't go to stupid lengths to get such.. she finds rumors difficult to ignore... she also has a problem with any authority that isn't hers... though she may pretend otherwise, taking orders from others is actually..very grating.
so what's next?
