: Lisa YamataAge
: 6/18. 26 years old.Character build
: 5'6", 146 pounds Athletic build, Female, Asian-American (Half Japanese)Affiliation
: Driver/Mechanic. Worked in her fathers dealership ever since she was a child and learned through an apprenticeship. As a driver, Lisa normally races quarter mile drag strips but she has began to take an interest in drift racing. She doesn't have much in the way of funds, should her car become totaled, so she tends to drive a bit on the conservative side. Automotive Preference (The car)
: Asian import cars. Easy to fix, lots of aftermarket parts, looks nice when fully kitted out. She has nothing against American cars, but seems to not like most European cars.Brief History
: Lisa's father has owned a, decently successful, multi-brand dealership ever since she can remember. As both parents worked, Lisa would leave school and go to her fathers dealership to do her homework. Of course, being a kid, she found homework boring and the sound of engines and tools to be more exciting. She spent more and more time in the mechanic pit, watching cars. She built an impromptu apprenticeship with the other mechanics, and was doing simple repairs for the shop by the age of fourteen. By the time she could drive, she was able to pull apart an engine block and put it back together, mostly. By the time she graduated high school, all she ever wanted to do was work on cars. She ended up with a job working for her father, selling him on the fact that she would learn the business from the inside and out and, one day, would take over the dealership. With the money she saved, she made her first purchase, a black Acura Integra. One of the mechanics from the shop introduced her to a quarter mile strip of road and a local crew of racers. From then on, it was an addiction. After years and thousands of dollars into her car, she ended up trading up to a Mazda RX-7 FD. The rest is history.Appearance
: She dresses conservative for the most part, clothes she is not afraid to get dirty in. It is not uncommon for her to have grime or grease stains on her skin. Her left arm has a sprawling tattoo from her left arm, spiraling around and up along her back, a giant dragon who's head finishes upon her back, flames flaring off of the dragon's body. The tattoo is elaborately shaded, looking like it took some time and was expensive. The outline for a second dragon, on her right arm, is set, but no where near finished. Personality
: Lisa is a hard worker. The kind who does her research and does not finish until the job is done. Because of this, she can be very intense and is prone to outbursts over long periods of failures or frustrations. While she does race, winning is not that important to her. It's the community and the ride that she enjoys, though the money is nice. She is fiercely loyal to friends and is more than willing to sit in a cell than to snitch her friends out to the police. This also means that, should someone threaten someone close to her, she will grab a socket wrench and remind them why it's a bad idea to shoot their mouth off. By and large, she is nice to be around, if not a bit boring at times.Other
: Sexually, she is bisexual with a bit of a male preference. She does not seek out sexual encounters, but does not mind if a few end up coming her way.
