When she wants something, Ryuki is about as determined as the ocean eating away at a cliff. Discouraged is not a word that has ever described her. In spite of some of the things life has handed her in her travels, she maintains that if you look in the right place, you’ll find the rainbow after the rain.
She’s the one to grab a friend by the hand and say, “Get up and we’ll try again.” However, she has a tendency to ramble on when she’s nervous, and she often worries more than she lets people see. Bio -
Ryuki grew up on Kyoshi Island, the daughter of a Water Tribe historian and Kyoshi warrior. Her life was quiet, simple, learning the fighting style of the warriors while listening to her father's tales that he had picked up while traveling with the circus. Little did his father know that it would inspire wanderlust in the girl at the tender age of 16 and she would take off, seeking out the places that many of these stories had taken place for herself.
In five years, she did more traveling than most people would in a lifetime. She started at the Spirit Oasis, though only from a boat, where Kuruk lost his wife and forged Yue's destiny. From there, it was on to the ancient home of the Sun warriors. In Yue’s icy home in the north, she remained a year, studying the deeper philosophies of waterbending and bloodbending.
Later, she walked upon the ashes of Roku's Island, making paintings of the remains of the homes that once stood there. However, she never found the library in the desert mentioned in the stories of Aang and his friends. But she did manage to take in the Firelight Fountain at Ba Sing Se, sharing her stories with a new friend she made there.
Ryuki's last stop on her self-imposed pilgrimage was Republic City, where she hoped to actually meet Avatar Korra and hear her story directly from her, but alas, she arrived too late. And worse, her savings were essentially spent. Things might have gone more quickly, but odd jobs along the way to pay for her expenses slowed her down.
Stepping off the boat, she let her gaze drift, taking it all in. The future loomed large in front of her, though she had no idea what it would hold.
