Still a WIP but this is the general direction I am going...Name:
Up and coming Artist (secretly) and HeiressDescription:
Akemi stands 5'11" tall. Her hair is as black as night and often falls rakishly over one eye, even when swept up into her trademark ponytail. In addition to this Akemi has one intense honey colored eye while the other eye remains covered by an eye patch suited to match whatever attire she chooses to wear. Her build is athletic and quite formidable while still bearing feminine curves of note. She typically prefers more modern apparel, often opting for a little flash where possible as she has developed somewhat expensive taste. Her ears are pierced 7 times each and she has a tiny nose stud in her right nostril. She has taken the crescent moon with sparrows flying past it as her personal mon.Historical Basis:
At first meeting Akemi often appears very quiet and reserved with a proper bearing fitting of respectable young woman, particularly in public and in more formal settings. However, that's mostly for show. The devious glint in her visible eye often makes a mockery of this expectation as she is forever in on the inside joke; because in truth Akemi is nowhere near so conservative. In fact, she is wildly competitive and a fearless daredevil with an insatiable thirst for victory, no matter how small. This trait can make her exceedingly reckless at times, though thankfully she is a quick thinker by nature, and some even believe she might be a touch masochistic... or possibly sadistic... or both? (She does nothing to either confirm or deny any of this.) Either way, at the best of times she is patient enough to consider her options since she simply cannot stand defeat but at the worst of times--look out! She's prideful but as cocky as she can seem she is always hardest on herself before others, regardless of the circumstances. Her loyalty is not given easily and respect must be earned, but others may be comforted by the fact that she is a woman of her word always
and once given she will go to the greatest of lengths to see her tasks accomplished. Because she has no truly close family of her own, Akemi treasures those close bonds made above all else.Likes:

Uncovering her eye, being ignored, losing anything, failure, getting dirty for no reasonBackstory:
Akemi was only 4 when her parents, a very influential businessman and his university sweetheart, were slain right before her very eyes as a last ditch resort to quite literally wipe out the competition. It is rumored that is when she lost her eye but since she was immediately sent away to live with her uncle in the States and only returned to Japan under the watchful eye of her grandfather once she was in high school, no one is 100 percent certain. During her high school years, Akemi proved herself to be a brilliant student athlete and earned herself the nickname "One Eyed Dragon" during that time, first as a joke but then as a moniker of respect. It was thought at one time that she might make a go of things on the professional level but alas she did not. In fact, in an odd twist, most recently the young woman has taken residence at her old family home giving some hope that she might have some interest in taking the reins of the family business that should have been hers by birth. Though nothing of note has really happened on that front considering her interests seem to be going a different route, much to her gandfather's dismay. Then again its always been hard to tell for sure what plans Akemi has until they're actually set in motion so who knows? For now though the underground artist known as Masamune has begun to rise.
