Nijima AkikoCharacter's Species
Human from SakodaCharacter's Age
29 Sakodan YearsBiography
Nijima Akiko, first daughter of Emperor Nijima Kenichi, master of the feudal world known as Sakoda; and his favorite concubine, Inoue, is a young Sakodan human, standing but five feet(1.5 meters) with dark black hair and purple eyes. Her faintly tanned skin seems to glow in dim lighting, and is a stark contrast to the dark colors she normally wears.
Akiko was raised as a royal daughter, pampered and privileged. Yet the girl was always trouble for her family and the house hold staff, getting into everything and climbing walls to escape the royal compound. Even on a peaceful agrarian world like Sakoda, there were still threats to the ruling elite. It wasn't until Akiko was six years old that she began to manifest ability in the force, frightening her mother with an unexpected display of force kinetics, shattering a priceless stone vase across the compound's courtyard when the girl refused to come indoors as ordered.
Within the week, a Jedi Master arrived to check on the girl, at her parent's behest. Discovering her latent ability to channel the force, little Nijima Akiko was taken off of Sakoda and transported to Coruscant for training in the Jedi arts. Akiko was later assigned to Twi'lek Jedi Mistress Ardana as her Padawan.
As her training was nearing completion, Akiko was approached by several Jedi she had never encountered before. Taking her from the temple, the small Padawan was further trained in quite a brutal fashion, even more so than Jedi Mistress Ardana's unusual methods of training. Nijima Akiko was trained to hide, to track, and to fend for herself in the most hostile situations imaginable.
Now capable of hiding herself completely, even hide her ability to use the Force, Nijima Akiko was given her rank of Knight, as a Shadow, and assigned to another Shadow to locate the Sith purported to be behind the Separatist faction warring with the Republic.
There had been rumors of Sith activity on Tattooine, where Knight Akiko and her companion moved to. When Order 66 was passed down, Akiko was in hiding, set in ambush while her companion worked to flush out their quarry. Her companion, another human named Brasque, was slaughtered by Order 66, while little Nijima Akiko remained in hiding.
Having learned to alter her physical appearance, Akiko was able to hide her lightsaber(even if fully nude), and her identity. Keeping the weapon close at hand, Akiko decided that the best way to hide in the future was to be the last person one would expect to be a Jedi: a slave.
She entered into an agreement of indenture, which was later violated by her employer, and the exotic little human was sold into harsh slavery; a pleasure slave for a wealthy but cruel merchant along the Outer Rim, by name of Remus-Qui Sereta. Remus-Qui found little Akiko both alluring, and useful... as she had the knack at reading people for her Master. This is where she first met the smuggler captain of a small freighter, to whom she took a liking to. Someone she felt she could trust to not take advantage of her.
Now she just had to get her to help Akiko escape.Equipment
