Well, I had a few different character ideas, but I've been leaning towards the one below, considering the way I've been making increasingly androgynous characters. I suppose the other characters may or may not realise or believe that he's male, which could be a potential character point/thing to have in the RP. It's probably best just to show you the app, so here it is:Name:
Japanese (half-Japanese, and half-Spanish)Sexual Orientation:
Heteroflexible, with a preference for feminine aesthetics. Biography:
Yūki was born in Nagano, on the 30th of June, 1975. His father was a businessman, though originating from a lesser branch of a Japanese noble family. His mother, meanwhile, was was a Spanish singer, author and model, who had come to live in Japan a few years earlier. Despite showing considerable intelligence, Yūki was always in the shadow of his older sister, with his appearance even then seeming remarkably femenine, and causing people to mistake him for his older sister, if they hadn't met her. She seemed to possess a genius level intellect, and quickly became skilled with whatever she happened to delve into, from the arts, to science, literature, and other areas. His father pinned the family's hopes on her, more or less ignoring Yūki. Her paintings were sold for millions of yen, and she became a critically acclaimed young painter and author. It would not, however, be long, before she vanished on a school-trip abroad, in America. Suspected by many to have died, with the evidence leaning that way, things took a turn for the worse.
His mother spent increasing amounts of time working, and staying elsewhere, whilst his father became depressed, mentally erratic, and often drunk, with his mother eventually divorcing him. Showing increasingly poor judgement, he became involved in the criminal underground, black market trade and dodgy dealings, as well as gambling in the more literal sense, using contacts abroad in an attempt to gain wealth from illicit trade of various things into Japan, including guns. Yūki also became a target for abuse. At some point, his father was involved in a deal that resulted in being apprehended by the police. More and more of his past was revealed, and he committed suicide shortly after. His mother elsewhere, and unwilling to take custody of him, he was unknowingly given into the care of one of his father's associates, someone who claimed to be his aunt on his mother's side, going by the name Haruna Rokujō, yet had only happened to have met him a few times during meetings between her and his father.
After that, he was essentially kept at a remote house in the mountains of central Japan. It was better than nothing. He had food, drink and shelter, and clothes, ignoring that they were usually those worn by women. He was drugged, molested and violated by his "aunt" and her associates. He was also indoctrinated, too. He would be taught how to deceive, and how to kill, becoming an assassin of sorts, who would manipulate and kill those who were seen as obstacles to the one who owned him. He would work his way into their trust, or at least a situation in which he could kill them and escape.
Yūki came to target numerous individuals, officials, reporters, judges and the like, who had holier than thou attitudes, and a desire to stamp out the likes of the crime, Yakuza and terrorist networks in which his master was involved, a network that also manipulated and profited from the conflicts going on. He also eradicated those the network saw as rivals. One failure to properly kill a target resulted in a reward of imprisonment and torture, upon his return. Unsurprisingly, he never failed again. During his training, at what was essentially a terrorist training camp, he excelled at long-range shooting, whilst also coming to have a trademark means of closer assassination, utilising wires to choke, or slice through vital parts of his victims.
Nonetheless, whilst making a message to those who opposed his "aunt," it would also come to bring the attention of the Japanese authorities, as well as CIA in America. Though his name, appearance and gender remained a mystery for a while, the chaos being wrought brought their attention. Eventually, they caught wind of the place in which he resided, which had at that point become a safehouse on the west coast of Japan. At the same time, as armed police and counter-terror squads were sent in, a group of nearby Yakuza were manipulated into attacking the area, which also housed a number of guards who had been ordered to stay behind. Abandoned by his master, he was drugged into a state of insensability, and as the three-way battle commenced, was thrown onto a fishing boat.
Unmanned, the boat was left to drift, and managed to end up somewhere in the South China Sea, making it past the coasts of Taiwan and Indonesia without being investigated. It just so happened to be, that at that time, the Lagoon Company were on a mission in the area. Whilst they were taking over a freighter, the boat he was on, emerged from the distance. To sum things up, they found him on board, learnt of his talents after the drugs wore off, and decided to include him in the team. Something along those lines, anyway.
Quiet and generally seeming apathetic, it can be difficult to tell whether he's simply good at hiding his emotions, or doesn't care. He has something of an inferiority complex, as well as a darkly twisted, nihilistic philosophical view of things, being somewhat aware of the common concept of morality, but regarding it as foolish, flawed and inapplicable to the real world. He lacks much in the way of social skills, and in some ways is na´ve, of almost childlike ignorance in regards to society and people, yet at the same time pessimistic and jaded, ruthless to those that get in his way, yet also expecting others to grind him into the dirt, or attempt to do so. Accordingly, along with his experiences, he also developed masochistic tendencies, though whether he may have already had elements of that to begin with, is uncertain.
Whilst often cold, he can at rare times be remarkably fearful and eager to obey others, should he be cornered or overpowered. On the exceptional occasion, an older self of his can appear, which seems friendly, cheerful, good-natured, and tends to acts very carefree, masking many of his real feelings with a smile. Yūki is usually emotionally distant, refusing to allow anyone to become too close to him, though he may not always succeed, and tends to come off as shy rather than harsh, a demeanour supported by a lack of experience in anything approaching a healthy relationship. Of course, he might be quite a nice person, even if he wouldn't be the best at expressing it.
Yūki is rather slim and feminine in appearance, with long black hair and brown eyes. He is 5'9" and whilst not underfed, weighs fairly little. Fitting his appearance, he is quite elegant, though when fighting, also possesses a ruthless precision. His clothing varies, though it is often of a kind that worn by women, even if he considers himself male. He has two bells tied to his hair, which serve to store the thin wire/strings he often utilizes in combat, though he also keeps more wire elsewhere.Weapon(s) of choice:
Barrett M82, garrote wires/stuff like that, and some explosives. Two Vektor SP1 pistols.Fighting style/tactics:
Uses guns for longer range, or traps from a distance, utilising explosives and wires. He uses stealth, speed and agility to best effect, lacking much in the way of strength or endurance. In melee combat, he uses razor sharp wires to trap, disarm, maim and generally dismember enemies. Unarmed, his techniques involve previously mentioned speed and agility, whilst also attempting to turn the attacks of opponents against them, and avoid getting overpowered by individuals that can often be bigger and stronger. When fighting, he's quiet and focused.
