Okay, a much more in depth character, now that I've had time to think about it more.
Tall at 5 foot 10 inches, Hitomi doesn't look like a classic Japanese beauty. Her face has a more European cast to it, but is softened by her Oriental ancestry. Bright green almond shaped eyes, much larger than normal, draw attention, and it's worth noting that they don't have an emphatic fold. Long, black, almost knee-length silky hair falls down her back, and would reach her knees if she left it loose, rather than the more usual braid. She usually wears black jeans, a slightly revealing black t-shirt that bares her midriff, and a thin jacket. Common additions are a small backpack, sunglasses, and a black ball cap.
Hitomi was the daughter of Kazumi Saito, a miko in Tokyo. She never knew her father, as he only appeared in Kazumi's life once, but she did know he was half-fae. She grew up expecting to take over after her mother at the shrine, going to school and such as she did, as well as learning magic from her mother. Things were going well until about her 15th birthday. One day a pair of men in gray cloaks arrived, calling themselves Wardens of the White Council. They explained that her mother had been breaking the Laws of Magic by using spells to calm people in the shrine. They gave her a warning and left, saying they would be keeping a close eye on her.
Hitomi began keeping an eye on her mother, pleading with her to take the warning to heart. Kazumi tried, but gradually weakened more and more, until, on Hitomi's 18th birthday, the argument exploded. She ended up binding Hitomi against her will, and that was enough for the Wardens. Kazumi was killed on the spot, and Hitomi grabbed a few items and fled, afraid of the memories, and the Wardens. For a short time she made a living around Tokyo, constantly moving and using her talent for Transmuting to get enough funds to survive, until the Yakuza began to take an interest in her. Frightened even more, she did something foolish. She contacted the youngest queen of the Winter Court for aid.
Hitomi tries to forget the year of service that she had to give the Winter Court, alternating blushing or pale-faced at the memories. It's enough to say she wouldn't go back. When she was released from the NeverNever, she found herself in the United States. Fortunately she'd done well with English in school, and she made a living in much the way she had in Tokyo. With some careful work she even managed to get citizenship over the 4 years she has been here. It took some time to get to Las Vegas, but she reasoned that it was the best place to lie low, as well as find women who might be willing to let her stay the night in exchange for some company.
