    Asari

    Post by Asari on Tue Jun 19, 2012 5:46 pm

    Basic Information
    Name: Asari Kitsun
    --Nickname: Asa
    ---Special Title:
    Gender: Male
    Visual Age: 15
    Actual Age: 16
    Personality:
    Asari’s personality was stable and somewhat open to the spiritual side of things until his capture by Reso. The experience forced him to delve into his darker side at a young age. He had learned to lie and steal to provide for himself and his devious mentor. After his return Asari rebuilt his mental faculties, but he found that he had slid more towards the middle of the moral scale. However it is worth noting that while he isn’t as law abiding as most he is not a murderer. The only spiritual aspect that has survived his ordeal is his respect and “following” of Yue, the Moon Spirit.

    When under typical stress he relieves it by action, usually this means practicing bending, kata or if the facilities are available forging. If stressed enough he will overwork himself. In his off time he enjoys sculpting with ice and sampling the new features of Republic City. His current goals are to avoid the shadows that were following him and establishing a normal relationship with someone. He keeps his lineage of both tribes to himself.

    In terms of his social outlook, being raised with mostly southern tribe ideals he believes that women can be as capable as men, though there he does have a slight bias against women in physical feats and “hard” fighting styles. In general he can be seen as a bit aloof in his attempts to stay unstressed.

    When fighting he falls to a level state that he wishes he could get to outside of combat, letting himself flow with his opponent. When wielding a sword he uses his grandfather's style and when in need of a quick weapon he forms an ice-staff as his limited skill won't make combat level blades.

    Appearance:

    Republic Garb Post Employment
    Spoiler:


    Asari wears a loose, not open, blue gi top with light blue fur lining and grey open back gloves. For pants he has leather penguin seal skin wrapped with strands to keep the material close to his legs. Without the strands it would look a bit baggy. The boots are made of hard leather with small furred water skins around the top each boot contains half a liter of water. His hair is black with the exception of his "wolf tail" which has been dyed red. On his left upper arm is a tattoo of his bravery symbol from his right of passage and a smaller symbol representing his Ni-sou guardsman comradery.

    On his back is a leather pack containing some changes of clothes, his Ni-sou guard helmet, minor smithy tools and some personal items including a picture of his family in a locked box. Hanging from the pack is a water-skin meant for drinking. On his waist covered by the top are a few pouches one of which has a moderate amount of water tribe money. There is a loop for a sword, but is currently empty of his Jiong as he couldn't bring it along.

    Character Background
    History:
    Asari Kitsun was born to Sanan and Kyan the chieftain and cheiftess of Ni-sou, one of the few southern tribe "cities", or rather village to be city. Asari was the oldest of one and equal to an other, his twin sister Ruri and younger brother Reishi. His father Sanan is Ittan's son with a drive to follow a close path to his father and lead the southern tribe in its efforts to improve and rebuild itself after the events of the hundred year war. While Sanan has some quirks of his lineage his head is level in tactical time spans with a warrior's cunning. His current professional goals is to turn Ni-sou into a prosperous city. Kyan is of the northern royal line, but serves to keep the fact secret from all, but her husband and close friends. Kyan and Sanan met in the north when she was saved from an unorthodox attempt on her life by Sanan. She was sent away for her safety until the assassin group was unveiled.

    When Asari was young his mother taught him and Ruri the rudiments of healing. For Asari this training became significantly lax around the age of five when Sanan began to take him on small hunts, though his father made the events appear more 'grown up' by exaggerating the ferocity of their prey. Ruri, while wanting to provide for the family was more interested in the details of things and continued her attentions towards her mother's teachings. This eventually lead her to helping her parents in the organization of the bureaucratic on-goings. It was around the earlier part of this time that Reishi was born and it was for this reason that both the twins training had dwindled as the next few years passed.

    With the splitting of attentions from their parents Asari and Ruri took up more meaningful tasks within Ni-sou. The male twin became apprentice to Housa, the village blacksmith. Ruri ventured towards the courier services, though due to her age she was regulated to inner village work. As time passed and the older siblings became nine, their younger family member turned five. It then that everyone's lives became interesting. Ni-sou was assaulted by bandits and the growth Ni-sou made as a city suffered a setback as its outskirts were taken over and Ruri captured.

    With the city guards and bandits waging a small war it was decided by Sanan and Kyan to send a small group of specially armed warriors to the outskirts to rescue Ruri. Asari as Housa's apprentice was the one sent to deliver the fine arms. It was then he found out about his sister's capture and desired to go, but as he was still too young to have passed the rights into manhood he was laughed off and refused by the soldiers. The frustrated and helpless feeling boy decided to unofficially join the special recovery group. He acquired arms from his master's shop with the intent of returning it after he had recovered his sibling then set off.

    His experience hunting and warrior training from his father and grandparents did not prepare him for what he would see in the Ni-sou outskirts and his muscles gained from working the forge would not be a substitute for skill. Asari found true fighting in the bandit held zones. In the beginning the boy dispatched foes by distracting them with his slight skill in water-bending and use of the blunt side of his blade. As he traveled deeper into the enemy held territory it had became harder and harder to avoid fights and defeat foes without killing. Asari eventually arrived at the main encampment and caught sight of his sister. During his trip he had found it strange that amount of bandits were so great, bigger than any band his story scrolls had mentioned, it was when he found his sister that the reason was revealed. The young warrior heard murmurings inside the tent that enclosed his Ruri, the voices made it apparent that this army of bandits was orchestrated by someone else, someone that had a connection with Kyan. Asari didn't let the conversation finish and made the rescue attempt.

    The brother's rescue attempt was partially thwarted as he was forced into a duel for Ruri's life. Despite his partial training he scored a killing blow with the jiong, but not before gaining a mortal wound and having the unnoticed aid of the special rescue group breaching the main base. Ruri was rescued by the leader of the rescue group, Sanan. However Asari was not as lucky it was realized by an intelligent member of the bandit group the relation between Asari and his sister and father, thus during the decisive battle the dieing male twin was taken, too weak to resist as blood leaked from his wound and trembling from what he had done, his world faded.

    Asari awoke far away from Ni-sou, bandaged and healed by his capturer Reso. Though regardless of this the injury has left him severely weakened. Over the next three years he traveled with Reso having been promised to be taken home someday. During that time he survived by learning the required underworld tricks from Reso and became particularly adept at pick pocketing. The wayward water tribe boy also spent time practicing water bending in secret away from Reso and made a run for home a few times, failing each time and allowed to live. It was in the middle of the third year that his salvation came not from himself, but his grandfather. The aged, but not withered Ittan had rescued him from Reso.

    The twelve year old Asari was welcomed back with tears and joy. While he was happy to be back home in Ni-sou the experience of the last years weighed heavily on him. A fact that had not eluded him was the fact that Reso did not and seemed like he would not kill him. When he asked about possible reasons behind this the answers were evaded, between the evasions and re-acclimation he was disgruntled. With his family's support and re-apprenticeship to Housa he regained some stability. Additional tasks grabbed his time with the, in his mind, failure to save Ruri he began formal training in bending and the warrior ways of Ni-sou. Between training and his apprenticeship he was worn almost each day, he was avoiding pressing issues, he was over working himself as distraction. Ruri and her more adept water healing was the only way he would get up sometimes, but the time of over work would end after is trial the year after next.

    On Asari's fourteenth year he had passed the rapids and gained the seal of bravery. With his right of passage passed he began to take an active interest in girls. This lead to several small relationships and a notable one. He developed a relationship with Fam, a earth-bender traveling with her non-bender family. Ultimately his mental issues strained their romance, but before anyone could breakup her parents moved back to their former home.

    As a late “award” amongst Asari's life, his grandfather took him under his wing for a month to train him in swordsmanship as he learned it back when he was with his childhood team, though Ittan was actually doing a favor for Sanan and Kyan. He was using the training as an excuse to find what was bothering Asari. It was during the training that it was unveiled that the evasions of Asari's questions had been eating at him, he knew there was a secret being hidden. After the training and with prodding it was finally revealed to him. His mother's and consequently his and his sibling's were royal from the northern water tribe and that was why Reso didn't kill him, he was a valued prisoner.

    The news of his lineage released a great burden from him and he didn't realize its true significance until later. Over the next two years there were minor incidents and the occasional peculiar persons that happened onto Ni-sou. One such happening was the Northern water tribe being made aware that Asari was aware of his blood line. That forced him to get involved in light politics as some privileged people in the north made contact with him. Another and decisive one was a social circle that made attempts to sway his twelve year old brother, Reishi. The group definitely looked to be a dissenting movement of some kind and eventually Resishi ran away, presumably at their prompting. It was after that incident that it was discovered the group was tied to the assassins of Kyan from years back. Asari consulted his immediate family, he blamed himself for the interest, or extra interest in Ni-sou. Despite the fact that they were his mother's foe the eldest son believed that his presence wouldn't help the situation in Ni-sou, with the northern tribesmen causing more attention to the city it would be only a matter of time before politics gave way to a weakening in Kyan's and Ni-sou's defenses. It was then that he decided to leave for a while. Asari was hopping that various figurative and literal pressures would die down due to his absence. He packed and bid farewell to his family, Housa and the town guards. Before leaving he promised to keep an eye out for Reishi.

    His travels took him to various places around the southern tribes with only his pack, water-skins, water tribe money and water-bending. With shadows occasionally trailing the Ni-sou warrior he found himself purchasing a ticket that used the bulk of his spending money. The ticket was to anywhere in the hope that the shadows would be left behind. The nameless boat that followed charted seas brought Asari to a place he hadn't thought of before, with all the family stories and tribe news the boat's destination made him smirk at his lack of thought. The Red Polar Rabbit, this nameless ship was heading towards Republic City...

    Notes:
    Reishi has been swept up in Equalist propaganda (the social circle that made him run away)

    Fam moved back with her parents (Haun and Eishi) to Republic City her Mother is an Equalist, though still with love of her daughter.

    Reso, master bandit is still at large.

    The enemies of his mother are still after him and may involve themselves subtly.
