history: Akeno was born from the union of an angel and a witch. Her mother Akemi was a witch of the Shinto faith and used her powers for years to protect a shrine deep in the mountains of Japan. Her mother had been part of a long and powerful clan of protectors of the shrine until one day she found a man in front of her shrine. She could feel from the man that he had great power, but not evil power or dark power. No his power was pure, divine in nature. Dumbfounded she dropped to her knees and gave him homiage right then and there. He smiled at her before kneeling and helping her up. She invited him to dinner with her where he confessed to her that he was on a pilgermage to see all parts of the human world, a personal quest but he could only enter the human world on sacred ground. Her mother invited to stay with her while he was in Japan to study how humans lived there. The angel agreed and he moved in with her.
He ended up staying in Japan far longer than he had intended, as he had become smitten with the witch who cared for the shirne. He would go out on his daily walks through out Japan and he would bring her back something from the outside world. He would tell her what it was and what it was used for and she would sit and listen to his tales. Her mother had never really ventured out of the temple grounds as she was it's protector. Soon enough her mother fell in love with the angel. A year later Akeno was born.
The first ten years of Akeno's life were peaceful and happy for Akeno. She grew up loved by both her parents. However just after her tenth birthday a boon was lowered on them. It seemed the angel, who had come to be known as Alexiael was being summoned to do his duty again which was to travel the world. He told them as he left that he would always be with them and that he would see them again. Akeno was sad when he left but she always knew her father kept his promises. During that time however to help cure Akeno of some of her sadness she was introduced to another of the clan, a girl by the name of Shizuka. They both became best friends and they shared much together. Sure enough he did, a year later he stopped briefly in for about a month to tell them of his adventures. He told them he couldn't stay for very long in one place since he had done so for so very long the first time and his superiors above him were watching far closer now than before. Akeno introduced him to her friend who was readily accepted by her father. However it was about this time that Akeno and Shizuka began to develope her own powers. She discovered that because of her divine nature she could use Light magic, divine magic without trouble. However her speciality was using Lightning and other elemental magics. As she grew up her mother taught her about protecting what was yours and what you loved. She also learned how to wield a sword as sometimes it was just better to hit a problem upside the head than to cast a spell at it.
Her mother having graduated from Yokai Academy enrolled Akeno and Shizuka in for classes when she was old enough. Because of her angel blood in her veins Akeno developed a very attractive body without much trying either. She was an instant hit with all the boys and even a good number of the girls. Being the daughter of angel in her teens also brought along with it some, interesting side-affects. Akeno was a hermaphrodite. A creature of literally two genders. Though she obviously favored the female form, something her mother chalked up to both a roll of the dice and her mother being a witch. So having a fully developed penis and testicles was an interesting side effect. Because of her mother's upbringing she had the strength to overcome this little adversity. She lost a few friends because of it and wild rumors spread, but Akeno never looked back. If they couldn't accept her then she wouldn't accept them. She won't lie about it but that strength came at a cost. She had to get tough and at times hide her heart. Often times when alone in her room at night she would cry herself to sleep, but in the end she knew crying never solved any probelms, doing something solved problems. It also helped that her childhood friend was there as well. She graduated with top marks, not honors but she kepted a respectible average.
Tradgy however struck as during her first year of collage. Akeno had come home on her mother's institance because she wanted to give her something. When she returned she greeted her mother as always but someting was different about her mother. She realized it right away, her mother was blind, had been blinded and poisoned in an fight with a demon. Her mother was dying and her time was coming soon. It was a hard blow for Akeno, her mother a pillar of strength was dying. She didn't have too long to wait either as the night she arrived one of the attendents who was taking care of her mother called her in. When she saw her mother laying on the futon she knew this was it. She knelt next to her mother taking her hand. "My dear daughter..." she began as Akeno shook her head. "Shh. Don't speak mother. Conserve your strength." she told her. "Don't be foolish girl, I know I'm dying and I don't...have much time left to me." she said breathing harder now. "I wanted you home so that I could give you the item left to you by your father." She said as she pointed over to one side of the room where a sword sat on a mantle. "It's your...gift...your...inheritance....and the shrine itself" she said before coughing badly. It hurt Akeno badly watching her mother in so much pain but she powered through it. "Take it...use...it! Protect what you..." she said coughing once more this time bringing up blood. "...hold dear...and it...will never fail...you." she said before laying back down. By this point Akeno was full of tears as she held her mother's hand. "Don't...cry for me...my child...this is my time. I've lived...my life...and it was...a good one. You are my...greatest...treasure from that time." she said to her as she raised a hand to wipe the tears from her eyes. "Remember...me...always child. I'll always be...watching over you." she said before one more coughing fit overtook her spewing more blood from her lips. "Also...remember...follow your...path and know...I...will....always...love you!" she said before her eyes flutter closed and her breathing even out and then stopped. Akeno cried and cried. She cried the hardest she had ever cried that night. Her mother was cremated and her ashes scattered about the grounds of the shrine. After closing up some affairs the members of the clan came to speak with her about what she would do since the shrine was hers now. They wanted her to stay and take care of the shrine since it was her duty now but Akeno couldn't help staring at the wide world itself. She told them she would think about it and then she spent the night in meditation with the sword in her lap. It didn't seem like things were going to become clear to her during her meditation. However during her meditations she ended up falling asleep. As she slepted she dreamed, it was of her father and something he had said to her when she was younger. "Akeno no matter what when you grow up always remember that each of us has our own path to walk. Your path is not my path, nor is it your mother's path. It is your path to walk. Your trail to blaze however you choose it to be." he had said to her. When she awoke the next morning she took one look at her sword and knew what exactly it was she needed to do. She called the clan elders to a meeting and told them what she was going to do. Naturally they refused but Akeno would have none of it, she was the clan head and that was that. She appointed Shizuka as the Shrine's new guardian. After all Shizuka was a powerful witch and could do the job just as well as her mother had done. It was a sorrowful parting but as Akeno knew growing up crying never solved anything, doing something did. So with a grit in her teeth she left the shrine sword in hand to travel the world, like her father.
