But honestly, she is a nice person and always treats people with care. Quirks: Echo, as stated before, loves changing her hair color. She also likes making eccentric pictures for her modeling job, and even doing something such as acting two roles out in one. Most people believe her to be either a genius actress or insane. It's part of her style to dress like a boy, and her preferred hair color is blonde, her natural being black. Her eyes are naturally blue. Bio: According to herself, she grew up in a showbiz family full of famous actors and therefore ended up with amazing talent. Her music interest aspired when she was very young and she was immediately signed up to do a million of auditions for musicals, until she got into this special and renowned Sakura Academy for talented students - she got in on scholarships earned from her performances. Random notes: She is quite popular among girls in the school, but is also the unreachable type of character, and therefore she doesn't have many friends and is usually all on her own. Sakura Academy was a very renowned school. It had produced star after star in all kinds of things. Famous authors, idols, actors and actresses, anything with a big, fat showbiz on it. Everyone who got into that academy were believed to become famous one day, and they were all both beautiful and talented, making the school a target for other school's students. There were all kinds of classes - anything from music, dancing and acting to art and poetry. There was sadly, no sports on the school aside from dancing. They only practiced so called "arts" that had nothing to do with the sports' world. Their dancing was usually put together with acting and music so it didn't really stand for itself that much. Honestly, not many students got into the academy, and not many got out with their talents and everything ready for showbiz. The few that did make it, never left the public eye again. They became famous for life and earned a status in life. They became rich and ended their days happily and surrounded by fans and friends who would love them. Etsuko, or, Echo, as she preferred to call herself, had been surprised when she had been actually asked to get into the academy, that they'd love for her to attend their classes and let them mold her into a star. So of course, who was she to object? Acting, being on a stage, it was her life. She enjoyed singing her heart out and making herself another person as soon as she stepped into a spotlight. It was one of her favorite things to do, and she had moved with her parents all the way to Tokyo from Osaka just to get to go to this school. Her actress mother and musician father were proud of her and above everything supported her choice. Her older brother who was in a popular band also came to visit after his tour was over to wish her good luck. So there she was, at the school, and her "new life" had started. To start with, actress-aspires, and actor-aspires as well, did modeling jobs. They created faces around the magazines and became popular, got a public appearance. After that, it was professional acting and musicals, and that had been Echo's favorite thing to start on. Now, she was in her senior year and apparently, a transfer student was going to start in their music club. Echo had been named as the president of both the music and drama club, and "busy" was her lifestyle. But she was happy with it, getting to devote all of her concentration into what she loved. So there she was, with both the music club members standing behind her, ready to welcome the new student to their little piece of heaven. Today, she was in a rather plain outfit, just a black suit with a white shirt and black tie. Her hair was black this time and straightened so that it didn't stick out everywhere. She looked presentable and nice, and her blue eyes shone like crystals. She looked back at the members to make sure everyone was there and ready as they waited for the new student. Echo more or less towered a bit over everyone because in the end, she was the only one with other-than Japanese origins, and it made her just a slight bit taller than everyone.
