>> PERSONALITY Marian is on the quieter side of the social spectrum, preferring to avoid difficult situations and confrontations completely rather than facing them, she is however neither lazy nor a coward and is more than willing and capable of taking care of things she sees as problems, whether the solution is beating up a bully or crudely alteringskillfully correcting her documentation after it has already been submitted.
> Marian is friendly enough, always happy to make new friends despite her lack of skill at it, and would happily chat with anyone from a fellow student to an old homeless person if she liked them.
When it comes to rules Mari usually follows most rules when she agrees with them.
>> BIOGRAPHY Marian was born in Australia, NSW, to a loving mother and a father who immediately left on a 'business trip' and never returned.
Though her mother refuses to talk about him, she likes to think he was something exotic or fancy, as it makes her feel more special than assuming he was just some guy who ran off.
Her school life was fairly average until puberty, where she grew quite large, topping out at an awkward 72.3 inches, this of course brought much of the bullying typical for teens, who fortunately soon learned that picking on the tall person with an interest in martial arts could be dangerousmean and uncalled for.
It was at fourteen that she gained her sight, after nearly drowning in a public pool and waking in hospital, only now she was able to see things... Spirits she would later learn to call them, and reacted the way any grounded, calm teen would, by screaming hystericallycalmly informing the doctors.
Doctors assured her it was due to the trauma of the near drowning at first, though when she kept complaining about them they considered 'specialized treatment' and she decided to hide what she could see, already having enough issues without being considered crazy.
Eventually after failing repeatedly to find decent work or save up for further schooling on top of other expenses, Marian won a paid internship at a Medical Insurance company in San Fransokyo, and flew over, where one night after a late shift without lunch or dinner she smelled ramen...
>>> EXTRA INFO For various reasons Marian avoided swimming as a child whenever possible, and after her near death experience combined with no positive memories of deep water she gained a crippling fearhealthy respect of any body of water that reaches her chest.
As a way to cope with her major height complexbeing slightly tall Marian came up with the oddperfectly normal idea of wearing heels to make people think they were the causes of the extra height (also she just really likes them), as a result she eventually learned to incorporate them into her self defense practice, though is a little better without them.
Kawahara Nanako (川原菜々子), also known by her stage name NANA, is a nineteen-year-old japanese idol. She made her debut in a period drama when she was only fifteen years of age, then went on to join the popular J-POP group メロディー. She became a household name within the span of a few months, her talent for getting into scrapes and scandals proving beneficial in earning her the limelight. It didn’t take long before she established herself as a solo artist thanks to her huge following.
Nana had always been so rebellious and vindictive, even as a child. When her mother had to be taken to the mental institution, she blamed her stoic father for it, doing everything he disapproved of just to get back at him. When her best friend Nori would get bullied in school, she would bully his tormentors back, whether it be with fists or words. When somebody told her Nori didn’t feel the same way towards her, she decided she would turn on him, because if she couldn’t have him what was the point of being nice?
Then, she went on to follow her dreams. She became a renowned idol, a household name, an icon. She would see her own face plastered on billboards, read the papers slandering her name. She was still the same Nana--just as rebellious, just as foolhardy and outspoken. It didn’t add up to her popstar image, and it got her unwanted attention. The paparazzi followed her everywhere. She had stalkers break into her home. Inappropriate photos circulated online against her will. The worst sort of rumors were fabricated by the media to humiliate her. This was life under the limelight, and it was hell.
It broke her. Four years and six albums later, Nana lost her passion for music. The dream she thought she was living turned irrevocably into a nightmare. Her heart was no longer in the songs; she thought them to be mainstream rubbish now, recycled to no end. It was always the same theme, the same singing style. She wasn’t evolving. She was getting progressively worse.
She had sold her soul to the devil.
That was when the hallucinations began. At first they were simply whispers in the dead of night when she could barely get a wink of sleep. Then, they grew louder and louder; she began to see shapes--brief flashes of strange figures that, upon second glance, didn’t seem to be there. As her mental state grew worse, so did these hallucinations grow in definition. Nana could see them now. Those demons. Smiling at her like an old friend.
Her first breakdown happened on stage.
Nobody believed her when she told them what she had seen.
Her manager told her she was crazy. Even her fans thought she wasn’t quite right in the head. They said she needed to take a vacation, so she did.
Angela 'Angel' Uzumaki is a 21 year old Femaleof Japanese-American Ethnicity. Currently working as a freelance photographer
>> PERSONALITY: Angel is friendly enough to strangers and even takes the time out of her usually busy days to feed the local wildlife when she sits down and gets some time to herself. At her apartment she has a Shiba Inu named 'James' as a reference to the Silent Hill 2 protagonist James Sunderland. But she has heavy moment of contempt for herself due to practically cutting herself off from her family by all accounts in order to dedicate more time to her job and to her best friend: Akiko.
>> BIOGRAPHY Angel was born as Angela Uzumaki to a Japanese mother and an American father who'd been stationed in Japan and had fallen in love with one of the local women. What had been meant originally as a one night stand blossomed into something more and Angela was born and nicknamed 'Angel' as she was the greatest blessing her parents could have asked for. But even at a young age, Angel never felt like she belonged among other kids. Her parents were very strict when it came to who she could hang out with and for how long/what she could do/etc.
Her school life was filled with years of bullying and utter humiliation inflicted onto her by her peers. Some made fun of her heritage believing her to be a 'mutt' for having an American father. Those who didn't agree with American politics/felt that the Americans living here/stationed here as part of the military were impure influences and should leave Japan's shores didn't win her any favors either. In order to try and get her headspace towards somewhere far more positive, Angel took up photography. It wasn't exactly the most exciting hobby and truth be told, she thought it was boring at first.
But then it happened.
As she got older, she was contacted by magazines and companies and the like for taking pictures of animals, cities, and primarily nature. But no matter which photo she took, she always saw one of them dwelling within it. A spectre, a remnant from a life that had either ended far too soon or one that had reached it's conclusion but refused to accept it. Maybe it was this that pushed Angel over the edge into cutting herself off and focusing all her love and attention onto her only real friend Akiko. Maybe she was just obsessed with the model and needed an outlet to talk to tell herself she wasn't crazy. No matter what she saw. Akiko will always be there for her. ...Right?

Robin is first and foremost, rather introverted. Large crowds or extensive time around people seem to easily tire her out and lead her to become sarcastic, moody and with a much shorter temper. For the most part, she is able to keep a good sense of emotional control over herself but even she has her limits. Mindset wise, she is analytical and logical. The think first and act later type. This has both a positive and negative consequence for her as it allows her to act rationally and in ways that are controlled and in the long run, benefit her. However, it does mean that sometimes she forgets the include her own emotions in things - especially considering she has a long standing tendency of keeping her own emotions locked down and closed off from others. Though it is hard to anger Robin, she is still human and in times of exhaustion or craving, Robin can be quite snappish and harsh towards others though she does not intend to be. In fact, she is the type to want the best for others - it inspired her career path after all. Robin has always been the type to enjoy helping others, the path of psychology is just the way she decided to follow this aspiration of hers. She is generally quite empathetic despite her lack of acceptance of her own emotions, which explains why she is generally a good listener. She prefers to listen and be lost in others than in anything concerning herself. Though she likes to keep her self generally closed off, she is aware of herself and her flaws. Her previous addiction being one flaw she would point out. She has an easy tendency to become addicted and reliant if allowed to be. It is partly why she is so defensive, she wants to avoid reliance on anyone or anything -as she claims, she has conquered her prior problems though this could be argued considering she still continues to drink and smoke, just massively less so.
Robin was born to her British mother, Amelia and her Italian father, Matteo De Rose. He was a neurosurgeon, having moved from Italy to the UK in his late teens with his family and her, a nurse. As his reputation grew, Matteo got offered a head of department position in San-Fransokyo which he accepted, moving to the new country with his wife and two year old daughter, Robin De Rose. As far back as anyone can remember, Robin spoke eagerly of ‘creatures’ she witnessed all around them. She would chatter eagerly away to her parents of what she had seen occur with this nameless creatures and for the most part, they perceived this as feats of her young imagination.
However, it didn’t exactly stop. Each passing year, Robin’s claims of seeing unfathomable creatures increased and she became nervous, frantic and scared. She would often cling to her mother or father incessantly in an attempt to hide herself from whatever it was see was seeing. In fact, she was seeing spirits but her scientific parents would never consider such a thing. Instead, they started to believe that their young daughter was possible mentally ill and so forced her into sessions with one of her father’s colleagues and a psychologist, Anthony Marks. Despite his confusion at her fearful depictions, he doubted Robin was as her parents claimed. Yet, their preconceived self-diagnosis didn’t change for they couldn’t understand why at her stage in development, she still claimed to see things no one else saw!
As Robin grew up, her parents strictly enforced many rules upon her. One being that she did not speak a word of these ‘creatures’ she daily bore witness to. This brought a whole new stress upon the young Robin who was forced to desperately ignore something she had no control over. How could she ignore something she could see so clearly? It led her to isolate herself quickly within school and focus on her academics - another rule her parents enforced. They expected the best for her and that may of been the only benefit of her isolation. That she was almost a prodigy in a sense. She quickly sped through years and to college, before many of her year group. It was her parents continued belief that her sight was hallucinations that led her to decide to undertake psychology, that and the continued sessions with Anthony Marks. It led her to aspire to help people and especially those who suffered from things beyond the physical realm of help. The mind was far more intriguing to her. Her university years were not the best however, her sight plagued her still and she took to smoking and drinking as a means of escape from it. Though, she was controlled enough at the time to keep it from affecting her work. She graduated far earlier than one in her career would, in her early twenties. Her parents, unaware of her struggles, helped her open a small practice in the quieter area of San-Fransokyo but her lonely habits continued and so, her smoking and drinking became a dependence.
This continued for a few years before she found the will to try take more control over her life. It was when her few friends noticed her receding further and further from them that she realised what dangerous path she was going down. If others had noticed, despite her already quite introverted tendencies, it was becoming a problem and she knew enough from her career that it terrified her. So, Robin reduced her smoking and drinking - though she fails to give it up entirely till this day. With her ‘new start’, she applied more focus to her practice and her reputation improved quickly. Then she undertook a new patient that clearly, saw the same things she did. Except, this disastrous sight manifested after a car accident that nearly killed him. In her research of the things she saw, she met a mysterious man who led her to one known as Ito, who supposedly could blind this curse.
This was a hope for her patient - is what she convinced herself though it was a hope for herself. Yet, much to her dismay, Ito could not blind her for it had been to long. She had been exposed to long to this and she could no longer escape it. Robin brought her patient to him and he was cured but her, she was stuck with something that had tormented her for so long. Although, this all did open a new route in her life - as an exorcist. Robin till this day, claims she is only going along with this to analyse a whole new set of crazy.
> Nori; Robin thinks Nori is adorable as hell. However, that is far from her main interest in him. Shortly after meeting him, Robin witnessed the other have a panic attack. This of course sparked her professionalism and she took Nori aside to make sure he was okay. This seemed to spark some type of unofficial and unspoken start of counselling between the two. Robin sees some similarities between her and him, mostly in that they both aspire to help people and that Nori continues to hide his problems. Not wanting to see someone make the mistakes she has and follow her down the routes she has taken, she strives to try support and help Nori as much as possible.
> Isamu; It is hard to tell what exactly the relationship between these two is like. One moment they are antagonising one another and the next, they seemingly get along. [TBC]

kaori stands at about 5 feet and 3 inches tall. she has very lightly tanned skin, to reflect her sri lankan roots, and something of a baby face, making her appear much younger than she actually is. her hair, once her natural shade of dark brown, has been coloured strawberry blonde, making it look almost peachy, and it has been this way since kaori was seventeen. her hair is quite thick and wavy and, because of her layered haircut, it also seems a little bushy and untameable. she has carelessly cut bangs for herself and all in all, with the way her hair looks half the time, kaori seems like a very messy person, or someone who's head is just all over the place -- and it often is. kaori has hazel coloured eyes, and a rather tiny frame, with not a lot of meat on her bones. despite this, her cheeks often appear to be rather chubby, even more when she's smiling.
for starters, kaori is very happy-go-lucky. she's very cheerful and very optimistic about things and is rarely worried or concerned about what could possibly happen in the near future. kaori's vast imagination and creative nature makes her a dreamer. she likes to believe that anything is possible, especially given all the things she's seen, and very rarely will you find kaori unwilling to believe someone if they say something, no matter how bizarre it sounds. of course, this quality might also make her a bit more naive than she should be. more often than not, kaori will be distracted by her own mind. of course, she loves to interact with people and make new friends, but she's far too easily distracted to maintain a very long conversation with anyone. either she moves on to another activity, or she jumps to another topic in the conversation, or kaori just spaces out. outside of her bright nature, many might find that she's a little weird, or odd, but kaori has never really been one to think too much about what others thought of her. she's perhaps a little more blunt than people would expect someone like her to be but kaori usually never means any harm. she just has a hard time relating to the feelings of other people. she's always been a bit different, in that regard, not feeling things like most people do, and unable to relate to people like people generally do, and this is perhaps a side effect of having seen spirits and the other creatures of the spiritual realm while having to keep this particular 'talent' of hers to herself. kaori doesn't think anything is wrong, of course, but any outsider would eventually notice how she tends to behave a little... odd.
even as a child, kaori always was very imaginative. but she was also very drawn to horror and ghosts, which was mostly exhibited in her drawings. her love for art was something that had been there since she was old enough to hold a pencil, and while many others would view this talent as admirable, her parents only found it a little disturbing that all their five year old daughter seemed to draw in class were images of dark faces with glowing eyes, or bodies of people in odd positions which could only mean they were dead. though her parents didn't believe her when she told them so, kaori was only drawing what she saw. but she was never scared of what she saw. no, kaori was always just curious. and as she grew older, it only continued. her parents tried putting her in therapy, which did nothing really, and aside from her strange admiration of the dead and all things horror, kaori seemed like a perfectly normal girl. she didn't believe that what she saw was misleading or a hallucination, but as she got older, she came to realise that not everyone viewed things the same way she did. so she stopped telling people, instead giving vague answers when people asked her what the inspiration was behind her somewhat disturbing works of art. and despite the slightly graphic and disturbing content she produced, kaori's artistic talent was viewed as a very good thing in most art schools. this was good for her, considering the fact that affording education was hard. her family wasn't totally well off, and kaori already was juggling two jobs so she could try and fund herself instead of taking her parents' money. the school she chose to attend was in san fransokyo, which was far from home, but a leap that kaori was eager to take because who knew what new things she would see there, after having been exposed to so much imagery during her years growing up. arriving in san fransokyo and adjusting to the life there led her to ito's ramen stand, which was where she discovered that she wasn't truly alone. apart from being excited about being in a new city and working on her comic book series which also incorporated spirits and entities, kaori was now also excited to be exploring another path in her life -- the path of an exorcist.
He has charcoal black hair and vibrant red eyes for anyone confident enough to peer at. His skin is fair and looks smooth to the touch. Contrary to stereotypes, he doesn't like wearing the most expensive clothes he can find all the time. Instead he wears a hoodie and jeans with a simple pants chain. Most people don't realize who he is until after they've pissed him off.
Isa isn't one to care much what people think and will pretty much throw their words back at their face, which is frustrating for everyone. He may not want people knowing he's a rich kid but he definitely acts like he owns the place. He's an adrenaline junky, so reckless is practically his middle name. Flirting is his past time... Let's just say he's a playboy.
What most people don't know is Isa had an older brother that was sweet, kind, and everything current Isa is not. Maybe if what happened to his brother hadn't of happened he wouldn't have come out so viciously bad...
It was a pretty average day. Isa's older brother, Ryosuuke, had to go out for a while to simply get something from school. Isa foolishly followed to try and scare his brother as a prank, unfortunately it ended badly for him. Two gangs had just finished a drug deal and their leader was walking out of a building only to be confronted by an enemy gang leader. The gang leader attempted to shoot the other in a drunken state and shot Ryo, who was walking behind them, minding his own business. Isa who had been following watched the whole thing. He watched as they contemplated calling an ambulance. He watched as they grabbed the gun and simply shot his brother the head. He heard as they called it mercy. Ever since then he's been the way he is.
How He Became An Exorcist
After witnessing his brother's death Isa made it his goal to make them pay... Years went into planning it and one day he murdered them. No one knows. No one has found out and no one will find out, hopefully. These deeds didn't go unpunished though. He's now haunted by one of the gang leader's ghost. The other haunts his little sister for some reason...

Genders You Prefer Playing
Playing Style- Passive or Aggressive
I can switch back and forth between passive and aggressive play style. I used to be really aggressive, but these days I'm really tired most the time or busy. I just don't have the energy to be as aggressive these days, so I like finding partners who I can lean on for creative input when I can't provide.
I don't have a favorite genre. I can role-play under any genre and I enjoy doing so. Though, I tend to stray more towards Fantasy, Modern, Scifi, Drama, Magical, Supernatural, and Romance (Yaoi/Hetero/Yuri).
Genre You DON'T Like
My least favorites are horror, historical, and western.
With the average person Amaya always wears a polite smile on her face, and maintains very articulate speech. She's trying her best to seem like a professional individual that others feel comfortable with. However this requires that she remain detached from her emotions. She can't get angry, or sad, or even too excited. In some cases when she's trying to hide herself, she sounds like she's just reading from a script. Asides from that people tend to like her. Her generous personality is not unknown to others.
Amaya's friends are few, and the only ones that really know much of anything about her. They know all her hobbies, and that being the daughter of a wealthy CEO is actually a lot of hard work. Still she always tries to find the time to talk to them or help them with school work. In fact she can get worried easily, and always trying to make them happy. She's like a mother hen really! They know that during their days away from school that Amaya likes to travel outside the city to star gaze. They know that she is never with out a good mystery book in her bag or a word puzzle of some kind, and that she loves to listen to music. Unfortunately, even Amaya's got a dark side, and her friends have seen it on occasion. She can get really aggressive towards others that've rubbed her the wrong way, and a little clingy. Though it's really rare.
With people that have not made a good impression on Amaya, she is cold, harsh, and unforgiving. Amaya is not one to welcome back those who have betrayed her trust. Hurting those she is closest to is almost a death wish, as she will find a way to make someone's life miserable in the most subtle ways possible. Any accusations of harrassment thrown her way are never proven true due to how discreet she is. She's calculating and very cunning in that regard. However; that does not mean she doesn't slip from time to time. On rare occasions, if pushed far enough, she will loose her temper.
- Books (Mystery, Horror, and Fantasy)
- Brain Teasers: such as Puzzles, Crosswords, Word-Searches, Sudoku, etc.
- Games: Board Games and card games. She likes very few video games, but doesn't mind playing action-adventure video games with a great story and puzzles. Her favorite video game series is the Professor Layton chronology, and Ace Attourney. She also likes other video games that have mystery and horror elements. She'd much rather read or do real puzzles than play video games though.
- Movies (Horror, Thriller, Fantasy, Action, Animated)
- Coffee and Tea (preference for tea)
- Spring and Fall
- Feminine fashion
- Low key occult stuff (like Ouija boards)
- People hurting her friends
- Being unable to solve a puzzle
- Cloudy days with no rain
- People with poor hygiene
- Most sports
- Doing badly in school
- Loosing her cool
- Puzzles: Amaya is never with out a puzzle book of some sort in her bag. There is nothing she enjoys more than challenging her brain. Her favorite puzzle game is Sudoku, but sometimes she'll mix it up and bring in a word search. It's quite strange though, if you asked her why she enjoys them so much she just tells you her father encouraged her to pick up the hobby.
- Star-gazing: Amaya has always loved to watch the night sky ever since she was little. Sometimes when her father and mother were fighting she would sneak out of her home to roam the neighborhood. She'd keep going until she find a isolated spot near the river, and lay in the grass. Every time she'd see a shooting star she would cry and wish for a better life. Looks like she got her wish. These days, whenever she looks at the stars she'll cry for a different reason.
- Reading: Amaya always had a love for books, even as a kid. She liked to use them as an escape from the daily stressors of her life, and still does to this day. She has her own personal library at her home. It's not really a large one, but she essentially treats it like an office. She spends most of her time in this room studying for school, or preparing for her future. When she isn't studying, she's reading. Sometimes she'll take her books to her room and read in her window seat. Amaya always loves a good mystery book, and usually has a book on her at school as well.
- Music: Amaya is currently the music club president due to the previous president graduating. She tries to have various orchestra students play at some of her fund raisers to not only promote the student's talents, but bring good publicity to the school. She herself is very musically inclined, and knows how to play several instruments. She's yet to really find a favorite out of them all. It's not like she could make a career out of it anyways, hence why it's just a hobby for her.
- Volunteering: Amaya likes to spend her time by volunteering at shelters of some sort, at her father's company, hospitals, or museums. She likes to hold fund raisers as well for good causes, and donate money. Recently she's been volunteering at her father's company during the weekends while she's still in school earning a business degree. She plans on starting a fund raiser for children in need once she's got her father's support for the event.
- Being abandoned by her friends
- Her father being released from prison
- People finding out about her trauma
- People seeing her loose control
- Failure of any kind
Early childhood for Ayama was an awful experience. Her father was a violent alcoholic that was both physically and verbally abusive. He always acted like she was an inconvenience to him, and would get easily agitated with her over the tiniest of things. Ayama's mother took the brunt of his beatings as means to protect Ayama from getting physically hurt. Whenever he became violent she would have to go to her room and lock the door. She could hear the struggle and yelling from the safety of her room, but it didn't do much to quell her fear those nights. Over time she couldn't listen to her mother's sobs so Ayama would sneak out at night in order to escape the hell home she lived in. She would lie in the grass next to river, and watch the night sky. Sometimes even falling asleep at the sound of the gentle current. One night in particular she was shaken awake by another kid around her age because they were worried she was injured. When Ayama explained her situation to them, the other child offered to teach Ayama how to defend herself. Every friday since then the two would meet by the river and practice self-defense and building confidence. The two became really close, and Ayama always felt like she could be herself around them. The friends she had made in school were not very nice, and fed Ayama's frustrations from home. She and her friends became bullies, and took their anger out on those weaker than them. After meeting the kid by the river Ayama stopped all that, because they helped her grow as a person.
One night in particular things escalated though, and Ayama went and hid in her room like she had done so many nights before. This time seemed different. She could hear the sound of furniture being tossed around as her parents fought. It sounded worse than usual, before becoming eerily quiet. Ayama did not hear the usual sobs from her mother, but rather the sound of foot steps coming up the stairs and stopping at her door. Then the door knob violently being jiggled, her father yelling at her and demanding she open the door. When Ayama told him no he became angrier and started screaming at her to open the door, threatening her if she didn't do as told. Fearing for her life Ayama fled through her bedroom window and ran all the way to a friend's house. The mother was a college friend of her own, and when she was safely ushered inside she began to tell them what happened in between sobs. Concerned for her friend, the mother called the police to report the disturbance and they rushed to the scene. Upon arrival the police were met at the door by Ayama's father who acted as if nothing was wrong, but due to prior noise complaints from neighbors and the smell of alcohol on his breath the police did not believe him. The officers pushed their way into the house, immediately restraining Ayama's father when he tried to stop them. Just moments after, one of the officers found Ayama's mother dead on the living room floor among the remaining shambles of furniture and broken ceramics. Her father was immediately arrested.
The news of Fumiko Fujimoto's death devastated the Domyouji family, but mostly her brother, an CEO of an up and coming Japanese corporation, and her own daughter Ayama. Ayama herself was put into her uncle's custody until proper arrangements could be made for her, but the man could not let his sister's only child go into the hands of their family in law. Instead, against his wife's protests, he decided to adopt Ayama into his own family. With the adoption Ayama moved to the wealthier side of San Fransokyo, where she begin the new life as the daughter of a CEO, and the sister to two brothers. It was hard at first for the little girl, given the fact that these people were actually extended family. Then there were the nightmares. Almost every night since her mother's death she was plagued with horrible night terrors where she was forced to watch her mother's death. Then they started happening while she was awake, and it caused her to act out both at home and in school. Due to her out bursts she her new father and mother started taking her to see a psychiatrist who came to the conclusion that Ayama suffered from horrible PTSD. They gave her pills, which helped with her night terrors, and kept her relatively calm, but they did not make the visions of her dead mother go away. Her mother followed her every where she went, until one day Ayama was approached by an older gentleman. A man named Hayate who told her that he could make her visions go away. All Ayama had to do was close her eyes, and listen to some really loud music. He stuck some headphones on her and she closed her eyes. The music drowned out any noise from the outside, and she stood there quietly waiting for him to fix her problem. There was a tap on her shoulder, and she opened her eyes when the man took the headphones off her. Her mother was finally gone. Then the man took her to a ramen shop, paid for her lunch since she was feeling a little fatigued. While she was there she met an even older man, Ito, who gave her a little charm as a keepsake. She was instructed to keep the charm on her at all times, because it would protect her and give her good luck. Then they sent her on her way, and Ayama never saw them again.
Ever since then she lived a peaceful life! She graduated top of her class, got along with her new family, and was accepted into one of the best universities in San Fransokyo. Things were looking pretty good for Ayama, until her older brother and closest friend died in a shooting. Things started to fall apart from there. It was like his death had torn the family apart. On top of that her favorite luck charm went missing, and just like before she started seeing visions of a childhood friend following her around. Thinking back to that day, she found herself drawn to the Ramen Shop once more. There she reunited with Ito, who finally explained to her what exactly was going on. She had been blessed with the ability to see into the spiritual world, that she could see ghosts. He then offered to take away the sight as he had done so before, but to his surprise Ayama refused. Then he made her a counter-offer...to work for him as an exorcist.

I like to plan and throw out ideas, but I also like my ideas to be cultivated with the assistance of my partner and hear plans from them. I'd like to be on equal standing so that we switch out from time to time on who's passive and who's aggressive. If my partner is too passive, then I am dominantly aggressive.
JUN STERLING, known as Junnie or Jun-ah to his close companions, is his legal name but not birth name. He's changed it so many times no one knows who he really is. They do know that Jun is a TWENTY THREE year old old MALE.
He is obviously of Asian heritage, primarily KOREAN to be clear, but he also carries some GERMAN in his blood too. That much is clear due to some of his facial features, he's undeniably handsome nonetheless.
He has not held a proper -- or legal -- job in years. Jun has spent most of his teenage years and adulthood getting into and running from trouble. He did all sorts of jobs for rich folks who didn't want to get their hands dirty. He was a professional thief, but when he got caught stealing from his employers he was blacklisted and put in deep debt. Ever since he changed his identity a numerous amount of times and been working as a NIGHT COURIER and taking other requests during the day, all under an alias.
"You should know that this is the strangest thing I have ever done!"

Jun is an undeniably good looking young man regardless of the poor conditions his clothes, and even himself, that he is sometimes in. He has a face and body that can pull off being sexy and cute. The features of his face are mostly soft with round cheeks but a sharp jawline and wide dark brown almond eyes. His hair matches those eyes, being brown as well, thick and fine. Jun's smile is a charmer too but clearly holds mischevy and secrets behind it. Regardless of good looks and wiry body that does, in fact, pack tone muscles, he looks quite skinny and to a degree he is, but not weak. He isn't the tallest height either, Jun only reaches the height of 5'10 and some would go to say he just barely reaches the mark. There are also a few scars that can be found on his body as he often gets into fights, but he also has his ear pierced once on each lobe.
Not many people know Jun except what's on the surface and that is a big chunk of his personality. He is far from being an upright and righteous character when he is in fact on the more greedy and selfish side. While he isn't an evil person, he can be viewed as bad because of his attitude on how he tries to benefit himself however he can, he's stubborn enough to go through great lengths. The traits have also made him quite crafty and manipulative. Jun is very smoothed tongued, a total charmer, and his speech has gotten him out of many pickles. It has also gotten him into many as well, he can rarely ever hold back on the sass. But he's easy going even then simply because he likes adventure and trouble to some degree.
But he isn't completely bad, despite acting indifferent, he still has a moral compass that gets the best of him occasionally. When he sees wrong done to weaker people or so, he can't help but step in and being heroic and throwing away his needs. He's a rebel even against his own logic at times. He is caring by nature and loyal to the ones he has built a bond with. He also may be egotistical, but loving with his close companions and humourous with everyone.
Jun was born outside the large city of San Fransokyo and in Los Angeles. He hardly remembers his childhood days nor his parents. He does remember being left behind at a foster home by a woman he presumed to be his mother. He was considered the troublemaker out of the kids, being so sneaky and manipulative at a young age. Because of his troublemaking, he had been in and out of many foster homes until he found himself in San Fransokyo. It was possible the worse influence on him. His messy life only got dirtier from there, but also ... hopeful. He had met an older foster girl, Lyla, who loved him like a brother and looked out for him. She taught him morals, though he rarely followed them, he became a somewhat decent human being.
When he reached the adult age, he was kicked out of the foster home but ended up rooming with a friend. This friend happened to be bad news and got him into the illegal job of stealing. Jun was much smarter than his partners and craftier. He started taking jobs from others who wanted to steal but couldn't. But when his sister Lyla became sick and couldn't get treatment due to lack of money, he began stealing from even his employers and was eventually caught, blacklisted in the underground and put in debt.
Jun had to change his name and eventually found a job as night courier and working other odd jobs during the day. It was then that he began to see things that others couldn't. At first, he wrote off as stress and then going crazy until he realized what he was seeing was real. He slowly adapted, but it didn't make everyday life easier. In fact, things only seemed to get worse from there until one night out on the job he came across Ito's ramen shop. Something about the place called to him, but he passed it by again and again until one night he heard rumors about it solving the issue of his sight. Jun finally approached the Ito and took on another job for his own sake.
- Jun has a photographic memory
- Jun is very athletic and agile
