  • The Warriors of the Zodiac

    People think they are just folktales, simple stories told from one to another. That these adventurers are nothing more than myths or legends. But these warriors, these heroes, are very, very real. They are twelve young adults each with a very special power. Under the guidance of Master Liao, they keep the world save from dangers. They help with local troubles, such as earthquakes and floods, but they are also sent away on missions. Sometimes alone, when one specific power, skillset or mindset is required, sometmes in small groups, or even all of them together.

    Now there is a new threat: The Scroll of Raju. It is an ancient spellbook that comes with the instruction on how to set free Raju. Raju is a diety of unknown powers that could destroy all of humankind, all the planet in a blink of an eye, if he so wishes. Lesser known is the subscript of the Scroll that gives way to the Amulet of Raju. The Amulet giving the one who wears it the power of Raju. Of course a weaker version, but in the wrong hands it could still be disastrous. The Warriors of the Zodiac are called together and through a series of challenges and missions they must find the Scroll of Raju and the Amulet, before it falls in the wrong hands... But of course such a powerful Scroll is no easy task to find…

Fears
Claustrophobic

Story
Ume originally belonged to a lower class family who did what they must to survive. Stealing was common as well as other things. Ume was a cute little kid, and it was clear that she was going to be a beautiful woman. Her parents took advantage of this and when she became ‘old enough’ she was sold to the equivalent of the Red Light District. This was when she was around 8 years old. Ume chooses to not think about her time there. Granted it gave her a good skill set that she would eventually need but it was a very cut throat world to try and earn favor of those in high positions.

Ume's ability started to form when she was around 13. It started with cuts that would heal quickly and became noticeable when bruises would vanish. Becoming a Zodiac member gave her an immediate upgrade in status, especially with the healing aspect. She gained the attention of higher ups and it wasn’t long after this that she was found by Master Liao and went to live with him. After all, the Red Light District was no place for a girl to be raised.
While at the house, Ume used her new time to learn how to read. She had basic knowledge but growing up in a lower class family, she didn’t have a lot of opportunities to actually read. When her reading level finally caught up to what it should be at her age, she decided she would use her new opportunities to study and become a doctor. They were revered and her abilities would make it all the easier. There was also good money in it.
When the other Zodiac members started to come in, she would blatantly ignore them and just focus on herself.

Skills
Occupation: Doctor
Powers:
It takes a lot of concentration for Ume to use her powers. Due to the amount of years she has spent with Master Liao, she has a pretty good manipulation of it and knows her limit. Of course there is always room to grow.

How: Ume uses her Chi to heal herself and others. It takes concentration and the harder the wound/illness is to heal the more Chi it requires. Extensive use could exhaust and/or damage her and if her Chi flow is disrupted her power becomes limited and/or none existent.

Detection: Can detect what is wrong with a person, whether it is an illness or an internal injury.

Alleviate: Can alleviate the symptoms of illnesses, allergies, and pain to be something more tolerable. This doesn’t last indefinitely. The more energy she puts into this process the longer it will last.
Ume has noticed that if used on the same person multiple times in a short period of time, it becomes less effective each time.

Cell Manipulation: Increases the speed of cellular abilities. This is what allows her to heal things like cuts, bruises, broken bones.
Ume has limited experience using this to cure illnesses and, as such, is unable to heal deadly diseases.

Reverse Healing: Ume is able to reverse any of the healing she has done. When she was younger, she did this a lot accidently when learning to control her powers. Now, since she has spent so much time with the Master, she has learned to control it and now does it at will.

Limb Attachment: This is something that Ume is currently learning how to do. She is only in the beginning stages of this ability and can’t yet reattach a limb that has fully come off.
Martial Arts: Aikido
Weapon:
1625707960361.png

Relationships
The Master:
Respects him and is happy he came into her life. He has taught her how to use her abilities better. She knows he probably doesn't like how she uses her abilities but it doesn't stop her.
The Dog-Hiroki Nakano
Ume doesn’t interact with Hiroki too much. She does admire how loyal he is to those he is close to but that is about it.

The Snake -Yeong Tang
Ume does not like his playful and charming personality. They clash often but despite this she does enjoy his company, she would never tell him that though. He’s one of the few people who know about what she did before coming to live with the Master.

The Pig- Ban Mou Yan
Ume despises the pig. SHe believes his antics are just that. They are a waste of time and she believes if he spent more time practicing his abilities would be much stronger than what they are.

The Tiger -Bohai Tang
Ume has no bad thoughts about Bohai. He is one of the two people, the other being Master Liao, that she respects. Him and his brother are the only ones who knew her before she came to the Master and she appreciates that he hasn’t told anyone.

The Rabbit-Fuyuki Usagi
Ume can’t help but feel pity for the girl. That's pretty much the only opinion she has of her.

The Rooster- Xiao Xinya
Respects his powers and thinks it is quite beautiful. Out of all the other abilities in the zodiac (besides her own of course) his is her favorite.

The Goat- Zhou Lei
Ume will always appreciate someone who manipulates people. She believes it is a good skill to have in this world, especially if they are female.

The Rat-Choi Su-Jin
For the most part considered her a friend. They had a rough start but Ume admires her determination. They bonded a bit through their healing sessions.

The Ox- Chih-Ming Shen
Ume chooses not to be around the Ox due to his lack of good hygiene so she has no particular relationship with him.

The Horse- Tsuda Miyoko
Feels bad for the girl for she had been through a lot in her life. Many of the Zodiac had but hers hit something deep in Ume. Ume admires her abilities and thinks they have great strength.

The Monkey- Yuan Zhi Hao
She did not understand how he had boundless energy, but In a way, Ume is jealous of the Monkey. He grew up with a family that actually cared for him and has no need to really be fearful of them. His powers are also something to fear.

Height: 5'11 ft or 1.5m
Weight: 142 Ibs or 64.4 kg



Personality
Traits:
Calm- One time a customer reffered to Xiao as having an "aura of calm" surrounding him. He is generally silent unless spoken to, and has a rather soft voice. Of his many siblings, Xiao was the most levelheaded.

Picky Eater- Xiao considers himself as having a "sensitive pallette", his mother called it "annoying". He stays away from spicy dishes and preffers meals that consist mainly of plain rice and mild soups.

Artist- Once he was old enough to learn the family traide, Xiao began working in his parents tailor shop. After learning the basics, he quickly discovered the art of fine embroidery and other texttile arts. By the age of ten he had mastered everything his parents could teach him, and his garments were sought out by local artistocracy. His ability to weave and sew lifelike images onto fabric has brought his family much fame and wealth.

Poor Social Skills- Xiao has a hard time picking up on nonverbal social cues, and while conversing he takes a long time to formulate what he wants to say aloud to others. Some find talking to Xiao frustrating as a reasult.

Likes: Matcha tea, the ocean, the feel of sharpened scissors on silk.
Dislikes: Spicy foods, disorganization, profane language.
Fears: Making some sort of mistake that would lead to him bringing shame or dishonor upon himself or his family.

Story
The Xinya family has run a modest tailorshop out of their home for the past two generations. Xiao's parents had six children, with Xiao himself being the 4th eldest. As soon as they could, the Xinya's began teaching their children their trade so that they could help take on orders and keep the shops income steady enough to feed so many mouths. When he was six, Xiao was given a needle and thread and taught the basics by his eldest sister. The art came to him naturally, and he soon surpassed his other siblings in skill. By the age of ten, Xiao was weaving and embroidering almost lifelike scenes onto fabric, creating literal works of art people could wear. Word spread about the small tailor shop that was producing such exquisite clothing, and the aristocracy began clamering over one another to commision Xiao for personalized wardrobes. Xiao's skill brought his family newfound status and wealth, which they used to feed and comfortably house their many children.

The magic came later.

When he was fourteen, Xiao's second eldest sister was to be married. For her wedding present, Xiao decided he would be the one to create the kimono for her ceremony. Along the hem of the garment Xiao wove the scenes of his sisters dreams for her future. A happy marriage, beautiful children, and a splended house to rear them in. A few months after the wedding, his sister moved into a new home her husbands recently deceased uncle had left them. The house looked exactly like the one Xiao and woven into her kimono, with the couple being blessed with twins the following year.

Although now wealthy, the Xinya family chose to keep their humble home, and thier children shared the same sleeping space. At night, Xiao's youngest brother kicked him while sleeping and Xiao found himself having some sort of vision that he could only interperate as a childlike dreamscape. After the fourth time of this happening, Xiao could no longer write this off as a strange coincidence. Something weird was going on with him.

By the time he was nineteen, word spread that for a heafty amount of coin the young Xinya tailor would weave your fate for you. It was then that the gentleman with the flowing white hair paid a visit to the Xinya shop. He asked to meet the young tailor, and explained that the strange occurences happening around his garments was due to his role as a member of the Zodiac, the Rooster. Xiao went with the Master to train and hone his skills and has been with him ever since.

Skills
Occupation:
Tailor
Powers:
Woven Vision: Xiao uses his art as a conduit for his abilities. He can litearally weave illusions with precise speed and skill. The down side to this being he cant use illusions in battle unless he prepares them ahead of time.

Nightwalker: Xiao can enter the dreams of any person that he comes into phsyical contact to while they are unconcious. While within their dreams Xiao can communicate with the targets subconcious thoughts, and manipulate the dreamscape around them if he see's the need to do so. Although much harder, he can perform this task if given an item important to the target and concentrating.

Manisfestation: The most complex of Xiao's skills. By exerting a great amount of concentration and energy, Xiao can physically manifest the dreams of others. This is what happened when he was a teenager and sewing his sisters bridal kimono. His love for his sister and desire to see her dreams be made reality brought them to life through his weaving. This specific talent takes a lot of time and energy, and after performing it he is mentally and physically exsuasted for many days.

Martial Art: In his years with the Master, Xiao has learned and done his best to perfect the art of Aikido.
Weapon: Longbow. Xiao does best when facing his enemies from a long distance.
Other important stuff?: Xiao preffers not to fight, but understands that it is sometimes nessicary and demanded of him.

Relationships
Master of the Zodiac: Xiao see's him as a teacher and has full respect for him.

psyche









passionate - one will definitely know whether she likes something or not because she is one of those people who will talk your ear off about whatever it is—positive or negative. she just gets so energetic about things. she is devoted to the goals she has set and is quite optimistic about the future.
charismatic - in simplest terms, lei is good with other people. she is a great conversationalist, and her determination and compassion is admirable to many. She’s a very friendly and affectionate individual who enjoys lending a helping hand to those in need of one.
receptive - despite being rather opinionated, lei is not close-minded. she acknowledges the importance of voicing one's feelings, beliefs, etc. even if she does not necessarily share the same train of thought.
fiercely loyal - to those she loves and trust and to the purpose she drives for, the goat zodiac would do anything for and would never imagine turning her back on without good reason.
witty - equipped with a clever mind, lei can be an entertaining young lady. she seems to always have a good remark for something.
self-sacrificing - lei has a tendency to be overly empathetic, prioritizing other people's needs and neglecting her own. she often experiences the feeling of loneliness due to her lack of self-expression in order to maintain unity and peace. she also has a habit of putting herself in the line of fire in order to protect others, making her a rather reckless and almost overly protective individual.
sarcastic - with an intellectual mind like hers, sarcasm comes naturally to her. typically, she is either just messing with someone or has grown annoyed with someone.
approval-seeking - ever since she was a young child, lei has always striven for idealism. she has always felt as if she needed to prove her worth. she can be rather self-critical when faced with failure.
overcommitment issues - she is a bit impulsive and, as a result, she ends up putting too much onto her plate. Whether it is due to pure self-interest or fill the desire of someone else, it often leaves her feeling drained.
manipulative - lei can sometimes be manipulative when she is upset in the way that she will twist people's words to guilt-trip them or make that person sound unreasonable. of course, she definitely feels bad after doing so. it should be noted that lei also uses to motivate others to make them better themselves or to inspire them. she is not an overall manipulative person though.

learning new things, training, writing, exploration, sweets, rain, dancing, swordsmanship, jokes






dislikes

bullies, feeling trapped or helpless, conflict with friends, arrogance, betrayal, lots of pollen, failure, being lectured, talking about her past

story









lei's birth into nobility was complicated due to her parents' differing statuses and her mother's appointment to a concubine. her father had been a high-ranking government official of the state while her mother had been a maid to her father's legal wife/lei's stepmother. being an illegitimate child, her existence was frowned upon by, not only some of her family members but also by much of society. some within the zhou manor even believed her not to be her father's daughter. growing up, her two elder, legitimate sisters were fond of picking on her while her "mother" did not hide her dislike of lei within the walls of the manor. her father paid her no mind most of the time and her biological mother had been sent away to live in the countryside.

despite the many flaws of her living situation, there were benefits to it and lei's determined soul found ways to enjoy the life she was given. for one, the illegitimate daughter of the zhou family was well-educated. her father was not good for much, but he was adamant about education and etiquette being taught to everyone within the household. though she did not enjoy much of what came with "ladyship," lei did enjoy writing, reading, and the art of dance as a young girl. though she did not have much support from most of her family members, her half-brother, who was the same age as her, was the exception. they often studied and played together as children. it was her brother's influence that drew her attention to the samurai class and swordsmanship. when she was twelve years old, she picked up her first wooden sword and began sparring with her brother as a hobby.

as for her powers, there were only a select few who knew about them: her nanny, her half-brother, and her personal maid. lei had been receiving visions since she was around four years old. being a curious child, she was constantly touching things she was not supposed to. through that physical contact, she was able to catch glimpses of things beyond normal human perception. of course, being that young, she thought very little of that oddity. on the other hand, her nanny was both awed and horrified by the things that little lei would tell her. it was her nanny who told lei to not tell anyone about the things she saw because she feared that lei would be labeled a jinx or disowned or both. so, the young zhou cleverly heeded her nanny's warning and only told those she trusted the most.

unlike her retrocognition, her ability to astral project did not began until she was around thirteen years old. she had triggered by an accident after climbing too high in a tree and getting stuck. long story short... it definitely freaked both her and her brother, who came to her aid, out.

anyways, by the time she turned seventeen years old, lei was well-received by many of the citizens who lived in her city. she was often found roaming the streets and stores within the city, and was fond of interacting with whoever she came across. she developed a bad habit of sneaking out during the day and during night—both through the physical means and astral projection. it was both a habit that got her in trouble a couple of times over the years for.

at the age of eighteen, lei was ousted from the zhou manor for "disobedience" and refusal to marry the man whom her parents had selected for her. her brother, one of the only support systems she had, was traveling at the time, leaving the illegitimate daughter of the zhou family with no one and little to her name. so, with what little coin she did have, she ditched her pretty clothes in favor of commoner wear and went to a friend's restaurant called the empress. there, lei to help work at the restaurant for in exchange for free in exchange for shelter. after a few months of being there, she was given a small table in the restaurant to make coin by utilizing her psychic abilities (and, yes, finally going against her nanny's advice). she advertised that she could accurately tell events from people's past for just a few coin and, gradually, word began to spread. this is how she captured master liao's attention.

when master liao found her and offered her place among his zodiac warriors, lei was reluctant at first. despite her unique abilities, the offer words seemed like they had come straight out of a story book. in fact, she might have found the offer laughable or played it off as a joke had the white-haired man eyes not looked so intense. despite her doubts, she, a young woman with nothing to lose, agreed went with the strange man and joined the ranks of the zodiac warriors as the goat.

powers

- astral projection: the ability to separate one's spirit from one's body. in a sense, she can essentially be more than one place at a time, whether it be invisibly or visibly. however, if she is to project herself too long, it can actually do damage to her body or soul. it also should be noted that her physical being essentially goes into a sort of coma when using such ability.
- retrocognition: the ability to perceive past events through psychic means. this ability is usually triggered by physical contact or at random, but she might be able to bring a vision forth with a good amount of concentration. typically her visions are broken into pieces, meaning it might take several different visions to connect the dots. even so, lei emotionally feels what she sees and, sometimes, it can cause her a lot of distress.

one will definitely know whether she likes something or not because she is one of those people who will talk your ear off about whatever it is—positive or negative. she just gets so energetic about things. she is devoted to the goals she has set and is quite optimistic about the future.
charismatic - in simplest terms, lei is good with other people. she is a great conversationalist, and her determination and compassion is admirable to many. She’s a very friendly and affectionate individual who enjoys lending a helping hand to those in need of one.

fiercely loyal - to those she loves and trust and to the purpose she drives for, the goat zodiac would do anything for and would never imagine turning her back on without good reason.
witty - equipped with a clever mind, lei can be an entertaining young lady. she seems to always have a good remark for something.

STORY
lei's birth into nobility was complicated due to her parents' differing statuses and her mother's appointment to a concubine. her father had been a high-ranking government official of the state while her mother had been a maid to her father's legal wife/lei's stepmother. being an illegitimate child, her existence was frowned upon by, not only some of her family members but also by much of society. some within the zhou manor even believed her not to be her father's daughter. growing up, her two elder, legitimate sisters were fond of picking on her while her "mother" did not hide her dislike of lei within the walls of the manor. her father paid her no mind most of the time and her biological mother had been sent away to live in the countryside.

despite the many flaws of her living situation, there were benefits to it and lei's determined soul found ways to enjoy the life she was given. for one, the illegitimate daughter of the zhou family was well-educated. her father was not good for much, but he was adamant about education and etiquette being taught to everyone within the household. though she did not enjoy much of what came with "ladyship," lei did enjoy writing, reading, and the art of dance as a young girl. though she did not have much support from most of her family members, her half-brother, who was the same age as her, was the exception. they often studied and played together as children. it was her brother's influence that drew her attention to the samurai class and swordsmanship. when she was twelve years old, she picked up her first wooden sword and began sparring with her brother as a hobby.

as for her powers, there were only a select few who knew about them: her nanny, her half-brother, and her personal maid. lei had been receiving visions since she was around four years old. being a curious child, she was constantly touching things she was not supposed to. through that physical contact, she was able to catch glimpses of things beyond normal human perception. of course, being that young, she thought very little of that oddity. on the other hand, her nanny was both awed and horrified by the things that little lei would tell her. it was her nanny who told lei to not tell anyone about the things she saw because she feared that lei would be labeled a jinx or disowned or both. so, the young zhou cleverly heeded her nanny's warning and only told those she trusted the most.

unlike her retrocognition, her ability to astral project did not began until she was around thirteen years old. it had triggered by an accident after climbing too high in a tree and getting stuck. long story short... it definitely freaked both her and her brother, who came to her aid, out.

anyways, by the time she turned seventeen years old, lei was well-received by many of the citizens who lived in her city. she was often found roaming the streets and stores within the city, and was fond of interacting with whoever she came across. she developed a bad habit of sneaking out during the day and during the night—both through the physical means and astral projection. it was both a habit that got her in trouble a couple of times over the years.

at the age of eighteen, lei was ousted from the zhou manor for "disobedience" and refusal to marry the man whom her parents had selected for her. her brother, one of the only support systems she had, was traveling at the time, leaving the illegitimate daughter of the zhou family with no one and little to her name. so, with what little coin she did have, she ditched her pretty clothes in favor of commoner wear and went to a friend's restaurant called the empress. there, lei to help work at the restaurant in exchange for free shelter. after a few months of being there, she was given a small table in the restaurant to make coin by utilizing her psychic abilities (and, yes, finally going against her nanny's advice). she advertised that she could accurately tell events from people's past for just a few coins and, gradually, word began to spread. this is how she captured master liao's attention.

when master liao found her and offered her place among his zodiac warriors, lei was reluctant at first. despite her unique abilities, the offer words seemed like they had come straight out of a storybook. in fact, she might have found the offer laughable or played it off as a joke had the white-haired man eyes not looked so intense. despite her doubts, she, a young woman with nothing to lose, agreed to go with the strange man and joined the ranks of the zodiac warriors as the goat.

OCCUPATION
zodiac warrior
POWERS
- astral projection: the ability to separate one's spirit from one's body. in a sense, she can essentially be more than one place at a time, whether it be invisibly or visibly. however, if she is to project herself too long, it can actually do damage to her body or soul. it also should be noted that her physical being essentially goes into a sort of coma when using such ability.
- retrocognition: the ability to perceive past events through psychic means. this ability is usually triggered by physical contact or at random, but she might be able to bring a vision forth with a good amount of concentration. typically her visions are broken into pieces, meaning it might take several different visions to connect the dots. even so, lei emotionally feels what she sees and, sometimes, it can cause her a lot of distress.
MARTIAL ARTS
lei has been trained in kendo though she would like to learn other forms of martial arts in the future.
WEAPON

Nickname: Tomo.
Age: 27.
Gender: Female.
Sexual Orientation: Bisexual.

Appearance
Hair: Dark brown.
Eyes: Almost black.
Height: 168cm / 5’5”.
Weight: 59kg / 130lbs.
Piercings, tattoos, scars: Tattoo on her back.
Face Claim: Meng Ziyi.

Personality
Traits:

Open-minded – Tolerant and accepting, she tries not to judge anyone else’s beliefs, lifestyles or decisions. She prefers compassion to fault-finding, and she feels empathy even for those who have done wrong. Because she’s so accepting, she often becomes a confidant for her friends and loved ones, and occasionally for total strangers.

Creative – She loves to see things from unconventional perspectives. Few things give her more pleasure than allowing her mind to wander through all sorts of ideas and possibilities and daydreams. It’s no wonder then that she is drawn to creative pursuits.

Passionate – She strives to follow her conscience, even when doing the right thing isn’t easy or convenient. She rarely loses sight of her desire to live a meaningful, purpose-filled life, one that helps others and leaves the world a better place.

Emotionally vulnerable – The emotional attunement of her is among her greatest strengths. But unless she establishes boundaries, she can be at risk of absorbing other people’s negative moods or attitudes.

Self-critical – She believes in her unique potential, and she desperately wants to live up to it. But this can cause her to have unrealistic expectations for herself. When she fails to live up to these visions, she may accuse herself of being useless or selfish or woefully inadequate. Taken too far, this self-criticism can discourage her, leading her to give up on even her dearest dreams.

Likes: Summer, shaved ice, going on a walk, writing (and calligraphy).
Dislikes: Not meeting expectations, winter, spiders.
Fears: Drowning, being locked up (alone).

Story
Born into a merchant family, Tomoko grew up in beliefs that she would follow in her parents’ footsteps which were all neatly laid out in front of her. Almost as if she didn’t get the choice to choose for her own, which was actually a fact. Her dreams however laid somewhere else which she came to find out during her home-schooling, she didn’t go to an actual school since her family was moving around a lot and it was a hassle to switch every single time. When she was about 15 years old, she found her passion in writing and calligraphy, thinking the words were powerful and truly lingered in her heart. During the time she was free to do what she wanted, she started to master the art of words, even writing poetry whenever inspiration struck.

Not long after her sixteenth birthday, she started to notice the small changes in herself as the Earth seemed to be responding to her oddly enough. Thinking she was just hallucinating or something, she tried to ignore it at first but it only got more visible that way. Eventually, she started to dabble in some experiments which were shockingly enough successful. Quite afraid of what to expect, she kept this a secret from everyone and hid it as good as possible until one day her anger took over when facing thieves who were about to ruin her family’s “income” for the next couple of days… Earth rumbled and engulfed the men in what seemed like a cage of sorts, more like a tornado with only their arms and head free. Astonished by this accomplishment, she quickly took what was hers and escaped the scene as fast as she could.

That was the moment she met Master Liao who noticed the little event that unfolded just now. Offering her a place under his guidance which she was wary of… after all, this was an unknown man who could do unspeakable things to her. But she didn’t get that feeling of off him. He also wasn’t afraid of what she could do which was not exactly normal. The thieves all had fear in their eyes but Liao was different. This left her wondering about what she could do with him as her “teacher”, thoughts going through her as she made her way back home. Eventually she went to meet him at a bar where he explained she could train with him in order to let her powers grow, though she did mention the regular moving so she wouldn’t be able to stay for a long time. With his agreement, they started her training which went on for about a year before she had to move towards another region with her family. She still kept in contact with him over the years, reporting her training and adjusting wherever she could with his guidance until she mastered both her power and swordsmanship. From the age of 21 she was given some missions when it was necessary for Master Liao, making up some excuses for her parents whenever she had to.

Face claim (if you know): Peng Xiaoran

Personality
Traits
+Nurturing
Every interest and hobby in Tsuda's life has required her to have patience, for results never come immediately. She is more about the journey than the destination, especially when it comes to people in need of enlightenment. It is rare for her to give up on a project or person, a firm believer that with time and love, anything could be done. All she wants is for the people she considers family to live long and healthy lives, to be truly happy for themselves. She has a soft spot when it comes to others suffering, either it be by physical or mental pain. Her door is open at all times, day and night, for anyone who may need a shoulder to lean on or a release of negativity. This can lead to her being stubborn during tricky situations, especially if the task requires problem solving thought.

-Guarded
Tsuda is very reticent about herself. She would rather remain silent about her problems than burden another being with them. Letting her thoughts build up, she can appear to be uptight and short with others. She will later apologize for her rude behavior if she catches herself, but a reasoning behind the attitude will never be given. Any attempt to draw out her feelings is answered by being brushed off and avoided.

+Disciplined
Since a young age, Tsuda was naturally submissive. This made it easy for her to become disciplined in nature, another quality much needed for the things she enjoyed. She will carry out orders down to the dotted line, fulfilling any optional sections. She finds enjoyment out of completed lists and prides herself on her ability to put her body through extreme conditions. This makes her to be incredibly durable, able to ignore the physical discomforts for extended periods of time. She will go into a sort of meditative trance for the duration of the extreme forces put onto her body. This makes it so that she can push her body a little father beyond it's natural capabilities.

-Habitual
Tsuda definitely has a routine she follows. From how she begins the day to the path taken to a common destination. You can always count on her taking the same route around the same time everyday. Her set routine in itself isn't a problem, but when the flow of muscle memory gets disrupted, Tsuda will be visibly irritated at who or what ever altered the routine. This rut can throw her entire day off and she will have issues getting herself back on track, completely loosing focus during the things she does. Change is welcome, but with a fair warning!

Story:
Tsuda Miyoko was born to a small middle class family. Her mother had passed away during childbirth, and her father, Hyong, was well known for his elaborate kakemono work, the scrolls raging from simple lines of poetry to paintings of the beautiful countryside. When she refused to be dragged to the market with her nanny, or had to attend Taijiquan lessons, she would help her father with simple tasks involving the scroll art. She would help set out the paints and inks he used and roll out larger scrolls before she would sit patiently for hours on end, large brown eyes absorbing every stroke Hyong made. Her curiosity grew with each passing day for the delicate scroll art, soon finding herself in trouble as she began using her fathers work materials to create her own poorly constructed masterpieces. Finding an alternate solution to Tsuda's interest, she was supplied with her own personal paints and scrolls, often whatever was leftover from a project Hyong had been working on.

Tsuda encountered no difficulties as a child, she was healthy, resilient, and listened well to her father's law. The young girl buried herself in arts and literature, spending her time reading rather than playing with the other children in the area. When she wasn't being aloof, Tsuda could be found in the study working hard on a scroll or practicing her Tai Chi. Her lack of interest to the aspects of life outside the arts concerned her father, how would she marry being so distant? He became persistent with Tsuda to drop the scrolls, Taijiquan, and books, so she may find herself a family, or it would be arranged for her. The young girl ignored the ultimatum and continued her days lost in words and pictures.

Greatly irritated with having been ignored, Hyong did as he said. He arranged a wedding with a young boy of similar age, giving his daughter no choice but to marry or run away. Tsuda put her interests on hold and married Ki. She was resentful toward the boy, yet he still tried his best to make her happy. The married couple slowly became acquainted with another, and love filled the air between the two like a tsunami. Ki encouraged Tsuda to pick up her interests again after learning how she was forced to put it away for their forced courtship. They quickly grew accustomed to a comfortable lifestyle after Tsuda began selling her art quicker than she could produce, her skills having gone beyond that of her fathers.

The next nine months flew by for Tsuda and Ki. They spent the time becoming well prepared to start a new chapter of their lives. Excitement filled the air and Hyong made an appearance on the daily, impatient to welcome his grandchild to the world. When the time came, twin children entered the world. Utter happiness and joy was supposed to fill that day in the Miyoko family. Complications arose and Tsuda nearly lost her life as her mother had. The twins were limp and quiet. Shock and grief rattled Tsuda and Ki to their core. Overcome with devastation, Ki took his own life shortly after the small funeral for his stillborn children. This brought Tsuda to the brink of following her husband, but Hyong made her come back home. He did all he could tp help his daughter through three processes, but he fell ill that winter. His health declined in a matter of days before Tsuda woke up, officially alone.

For the first time in her life, Tsuda had no one. She was about fifteen and had never had to depend on herself. She fumbled through the next several years of her life, lost without direction. She found herself unable to stay in places with a lot of people and animals. Everything felt overwhelming and the range of emotions she experienced did not feel of her own. She secluded herself away from everyone, living on the outskirts of a village stuffed away in the mountains. Still, the invisible ropes of foreign emotions plagued her. She began having difficulties focusing on her work, often habing a break down on the middle of a project.

Nearly each scroll she happened to manage finishing was returned to her, clients claiming them to have evil spirits attached. Each time the scroll was wrapped or sealed when being returned. The ones who hung the kakemono within their homes were wrought with amplified feelings that became unbareable. The people who sheltered their guilt could no longer bare their dark secrets. The ones who were filled with silent rage unleashed it upon their loved ones, several times resulting in a few murders. Very few had positive effects on the household members, as they had been living mostly docile lives and had made inner peace within themselves. Tsuda tried to explain there was nothing strange about the scrolls, yet her works kept returning and the coin stopped coming. Confused and frightened, Tsuda shut down and never left her home.

Master Liao had been able to discover the whereabouts of the young woman from the travelling rumors of cursed kakemono pieces. When finally found, Tsuda was informed of her position in the Zodiac as the Horse, and that with the Master she would be able to learn how to control her abilities, as well as shut the doors to the foreign empathic feelings. She accepted without heisitation and was ready to leave within an hour.

Tsuda found a new home with the Master and the Zodiac Warriors. She became religious with her training, never wanting the Master to be disappointed in her. She gained a handle on the emotional powers she had, yet she has much more to learn about her special abilities. With the Tai Chi she practiced when she was younger, her swordplay is like an elegant dance, the katana an extension of her body. She learned the healing properties of Reiki, and discovered a hidden love for helping others find inner peace. Tsuda found purpose in life again, peace and a family.

Skills
Occupation: Kakemono Artist and spiritual healer

Powers
Spider Silk Tsuda can mentally send suggestive emotions and ideas to unsuspecting people. This takes her a moment to achieve as she must find the invisible thread through her third eye, and trace it to the correct person. If the person is or becomes aware of the suggestion, this will have no effect.

Cursed Ink Upon channeling negative energy into the strokes of ink, Tsuda may place a curse, a randomly occurring hindrance, onto an opponent for a short duration of time.

Buddha's Grace Tsuda may channel positive energies into protective wards for allies. They deflect minor amounts of damage but can be life saving in a pinch. This is achieved by drawing a symbol of protection onto the person.

*Each ability may be used with any form of medium, such as ink, paint, mud, blood, and so on.
* Using any of her abilities takes a toll, especially when already drained. She becomes lethargic and bed ridden in extreme cases.

She has a soft spot for children

Face claim: Doo Ho Choi

Personality
Stubborn: Once Ming makes up his mind on something, it is nearly impossible to dissuade him from carrying out his new goal. This can be both a blessing, and a curse.

Gentle Giant: Although incredibly strong and somewhat intimidating, Ming is a gentle spirit who cares deeply for those close to him. Those who have relationships with Ming could describe him as being the "big brother" of the group they belong to.

Bad Hygiene: Ming tends to smell like a combination of sweat and dirt due to his rigorous training. He has to be reminded to bathe.

Likes: Eating (especially meat dishes), Waking up early, The smell of pipe smoke
Dislikes: Water (bad at swimming), Wearing shirts (they restrict movement), Winter
Fears: Large bodies of water such as lakes and the ocean. His poor swimming skills would lead him to sink like a stone, and he cant die before he accomplishes his life's goal.

Story
Ming's parents were farmers in a small country village. When Ming was nine his parents died of an illness they couldn't afford to cure. In her last moments, Ming's mother made him promise that he would protect his younger sister. Ming took his promise seriously. When money ran low Ming sold the farm to a neighbor, and used the funds to purchase a room at a local inn for him and his sister to live for the time being. As time went on Ming took on odd jobs around the village, from making deliveries to helping mend roofs, to keep him and his sister clothes and fed. Mings sister became the local beauty as she aged. By the time she was sixteen she was considered a local beauty. Many men clamored for her hand in marriage, but she turned down all of them. She told Ming: "I dont feel like my life was meant to be tied to a mans. Or woman's for that matter. My spirit was meant to be free."

When Ming was twenty he took a job delivering a rice crop for a local farmer to a neighboring town. In his absense a warlord attacked and pillaged his home village. Ming returned home to find everything a smoking ruin. Those who survided the raid told Ming that his sister's beauty had enchanted the warlord, and he stole her away to become his bride. In a fit of anger and fear, Ming tracked down the warlord to his encampent where he attempted to take back his sister. But he wasn't strong enough. He didnt even make it past the guards who laughed at him and stabbed a spear into his side.

Upon recovering from his wound, Ming swore he would become stronger so that he could challenge the warlord and rescue his sister from the marriage she had never wanted. He trained nonstop, becoming a mass of muscle. But it still wasnt enough. Rumors spoke of a man who ran a temple that trained mythical warriors, and Ming spent three years searching for Master Liao. In the third year, he finally stumbled upon the temple and begged Master Liao to take him in and teach him everything he knew about combat. To save his sister, no price was too high. He would do whatever it took. What Ming didn't know was that the spirit of the Ox resided within him.

Over the past year Ming has been studying under the Master of the Zodiac, but he still has a lot to learn. He wont rest until his sister is safe.

Skills
Occupation: None.
Powers:
Sturdy- Ming's abilities give him incredible strength. As he is just now coming into his powers, he is unable to hold it for long periods of time at the moment. As he trains he will eventually be able to keep it up for longer periods.

Earth Manipulation- Ming can call upon the earth to move at his will. Using this ability he can create barriers, projectiles, small bridges, and temporary shelter. Right now his structures are small, but the more familiar he gets with his powers, the more powerful his feats will be.

Stone Skin- This ties in with the previous power. While fighting, Ming calls stone to envelop his skin as both a defensive and offensive measure. The hardened stone acts as a barrier to defect sharp weapons, and adds damange and power to his unarmed strikes.
Martial Art: Bakador style ( It uses a diverse array of elbow and knee strikes, shin kicks, submissions and ground fighting. Bokator practitioners are trained to strike with knees, hands, elbows, feet, shins, and head. Even the shoulders, hip, jaw, and fingers can be used to fight an opponent to submission or death.)
