Name: Leiko Yokkako

Birthday/Birthplace/Nationality: July 22nd/Ginza/Tokyo
(Optional)Clubs/extracurricular activities: Art Club
(If any)Occupation: Commissioned artist
Physical Appearance: Leiko has smooth skin, brown eyes and curly chocolate brown locks. Her face and jawline is narrow and foxlike, but her eyes are almond shaped and an icy blue color. Her eyebrows are usually neatly plucked. Her lips aren't that thin, but they aren't pouty either. Her cheeks are on the thin side and are usually quite pale, blushes don't usually show through, if they even do at all. Her nose is small and even dainty looking; matching her sleek face and her nose is curved aristocratically. Her neck and shoulders are slender. Her chin has a slight vertical cleft in it. Her hair is curly and is worn plainly and down.
She has a slender body build, narrowed and small. Her arms are smooth and elegant; her legs are long and refined. Her hands are sinewy and her fingers are thin, but elegant. She usually maintains short fingernails to more efficiently play string instruments, and she won't paint them. She has multiple hourglass curves, with a moderately sized chest.
Clothing: Leiko enjoys elegant and snug garments. She changes their color according to the seasons, but she really favors wearing V-necks and multiple layers, alongside boots with thigh high socks. Her taste in clothing is a little eccentric, neon colors appeal to her the most out of any other shades and sometimes she’s very easy to spot, occasionally she’ll go out dressed in all neon colors, but she mostly goes for cooler or warmer, more regular shades alongside touches of neon rather than go out all out with the outrageous colors.
Her tops are generally long with plunging necklines and corsets are often featured in her wardrobe during winter when more layers are required, during the winter she’ll wear warmer colors and she’ll most likely pair her layers with arm and leg warmers, or arm warmers and thick, thigh high socks. Wintertime is her favorite time due to being able to wear more snuggly layers. She’ll ditch her skirts and shorts for the boy’s uniforms pants, but she’ll still wear the regular girl’s top no matter how silly it might appear. She likes scarves as well; and maybe even a shawl to go with it, but she doesn’t wear them all the time because if she did she believes it would make her look like an old lady.
She can also wear ornately patterned and lacy clothing. During the warmer seasons she’ll wear skirts and shorts, but she’ll lack the corsets and go for waistcoats which are usually meant for men but she has them tailored to fit her much smaller size. She’ll wear warm, bright colors and more neon in the summer because it at least reflects a little heat away from her. She doesn’t like wearing jewelry at all, besides a ring or two.
Personality: Outgoing, rebellious in an excited way, and a popular party animal. She’s well known amongst the people of Inaba, for going to parties but never for hosting them. She’s rather popular ever since her transfer from Tokyo, with a quirky sense of humor and an easily excitable nature. She gets affectionate and touchy with everybody regardless of gender, but appears to be rather supportive of everybody around her, earning genuine affection for her false acting. She’s quick to kick those who bully others. She doesn’t appear airheaded but isn’t all down to earth. She pays attention in class and does well while aspiring for seemingly impossible things, like getting a castle and whether she’s kidding about that or not can’t easily be said. She’s surprisingly quick to banter with the teachers if she believes they’re wrong and sometimes even get detention for it.
This is a deep deception. She gets bored easy, is inconsistent, and secretly hates most of her moronic airheaded ‘friends’. She’s honestly rather fickle with everything from hobbies to the people she hangs out with, this can be mistaken as her being a social butterfly, but she actually gets really bored of others company. Leaving them for a little while is her way of secretly saying ‘you’re not amusing me’. Amusement is key within her personality’s design, as long as you’re amusing her (but also believe her fašade is real) then she’ll stick around to laugh. She believes that most only love the false image she projects for her social gain and game. She’s almost sick of pushing her true nature back into the crevices of her mind, alongside all of her snarky ridiculing comments; however, she mostly feels conflicting about how she acts.
People seem so used to her being happy. She’s secretly very insecure about her relations with everybody at school and is desperate for them not to leave her, whenever she mentally debates on whether she should act how she wants to; a cynical voice reminds her that nobody will remain if she turns to another attitude. She’s very sick of the people in Inaba overall, but what else does she have? People being her friend is also another way she can subtly manipulate people. She has an unkind thirst for power and desperately needs to people to be around and to control to make herself feel better. She feels very malicious towards other people, especially her fellow students, she easily gets envious over those who have higher grades. One genuine part she shows through is the desire to touch people. She likes displaying physical affection, even if real mental affection is false. She’s very fearful, not of her true nature but reactions to it. She’ll easily get jealous when others put their hands on things she believes to belong to her. She has paranoia of others stealing her things.
Although she easily get suspicious of those who she knows turning on her, she asks people and comes on subtly, although she’ s never that good at quelling her paranoia. She can restrain almost everything about her mind, with the exception of fears and paranoia. Leiko is easily prone to becoming a nervous wreck, which is usually when she high tails it home. She’s actually rather intelligent with above standard grades, but her real cleverness lays in the arts. She can’t play an instrument but she can sculpt, sew, paint and draw very adeptly. Art comes natural to her, most likely from her father whom she never had the privilege to know. She has a small sense of guilt and doesn’t really care about the problems anybody else may be having.
Likes: Rams, sheep, elk, moose, goats, horses, neon colors, sweet foods, video games (not strategy RPGs, she’s more the Animal Crossing type), attractive people, rock music, pop music
Dislikes: Chess, checkers, strategy games, most of her classmates, sunny weather, warm weather, humid weather, salty foods, bland foods, fruits, sexists, homophobes, racists, immature humor, TV, cats, dubstep music
(Optional)Habits: She has a habit of glancing at the clock, or looking for one around her, she also has a habit of raising her eyebrows as she speaks regardless of her true emotions or feelings.
Arcana: Lust/Hunger Arcana
Shadow's Personality: Leiko’s suppressed self represents her fear of losing the interest of people, people make her entire being, if nobody likes or depends on her, then she won’t really be able to get close or have power and control over anybody. Power and control over others is her deepest desire. Besides being despicably cowardly, her shadow also expresses greed for the close bonds that others share with each other; she wants to be close but only to use people before throwing them out. She’s afraid of losing her ties with people which is why she must appear positive at all times. Even with its main point, her shadow also expresses that her desire to forge close bonds also arises from insatiable hunger for love and craving for attention, explaining her broad and outgoing nature.
Weapon(s): Leiko mostly uses claw-like blades that strike out when she flexes her hand a certain way.
Glasses: Neon purple Cat Eye glasses, horned rimmed glasses with flared outer edges where the arches join the frame.

Past: Leiko wasn't really in a nice place for most of her childhood. She inherited wit and steadfast determination from her mother, and raw desire and addictive habits from her father. Her mother was a wealthy and working doctor, who had come from a rather unstable back ground, her relatives had constantly pushed her into relationships and forced her into religion, so when it was against their desire for her to marry Leiko's father, she did the exact opposite of what they wanted. Her mother, while not the nicest of people, knew true values and loyalty, screw those who wanted to use you. Leiko’s mother met her father in a crowded bar and soon after they fell in love, they got married.
Her father died in a drunken driving accident, and even before then an unfortunate niche in her father had been his alcoholic habits. The accident was caused by him alone, two other people died. Her mother's sanity spiraled down from there, after Leiko was born; her mother was served as a constant reminder of her previous relationship. As a result, Leiko was never treated very nicely by her mother. She had inherited the adept social skills of her father, and although she was popular in school, she was verbally abused by her mother at home. This became a regular cycle, whether it was finding little mistakes to exaggerate, or simply placing needless blame on her, Leiko's pride dwindled and she soon began to shut herself away from those at school.
Others didn't like this change in her, as she saw her popularity dwindle; she began to realize the importance of popularity in life. This was during her middle school years, and it disgusted her. Her mother disgusted her and she disgusted herself. She began to feel rather empty; a fear of people leaving her became apparent. She didn’t care if she was ‘used’ because she would be using people as well. So she began to act how she usually would. Even though she had lost touch of what she usually was. She was used to having things crammed down her throat, and she was used to taking it with a smile. No more. Her mentality grew disgusted; there were no people who would accept her for who she was. She faced that soon after she realized it.
She tapped into social skills once more in high school and began to manipulate people that way, digging into blackmail and seduction mostly. She was a very good listener, very good at being silent and stealthy, but she specialized in outgoingness. She created an entire false persona. She was good at charming others, she was good at being tempting and subtly manipulative. As time wore on she grew tired of appearing so positive. Her talents in the art excelled, earning her more popularity.
Her mother continued to spiral down, the climax of it eventually being when Leiko arrived home one day and got into a fight with her mother, a verbal one which escalated. Her mother became enraged, throwing dish washer fluid into her eyes. Leiko was blinded, and after her mother fled upstairs, she managed to call the hospital. Her mother was sent to the mental hospital with charges, Leiko would eventually have to testify if she wanted her mother out.
Leiko's sight was saved… But only temporarily. Eventually there was an even possibility of blindness. She felt numb, she felt dead for some godforsaken reason and nothing made sense. It shattered her psyche, she cracked completely. She went almost crazy, but she suppressed it and it ended up hollowing out her heart. But that was unpleasant, deluded by herself, she wiped the event from her memory. Or at least she attempted to. She wouldn't let such horrid things ruin her social game. She kept on being social.

Born in Ontario Canada his father is the estranged son of a Japanese minister in Kyoto and his mother a famous newscaster from Canada. His mother met his father on a fated day when she met for a press conference with colleagues about a story in Japan and met the minister's son Akihisa Namikaze. The two became quick friends on their stay despite his father disliking his son's choice in women. After his mother's time was up in Japan his father moved with her over to Canada where Takumi was born using his father's heritage though his grandfather had refused to acknowledge his father until he left the woman. Takumi grew up as a quiet young man despite what he would become in the future and had rather poor physical skills. He had trouble making friends and was some what awkward which was when his mother taught him to interact better with the other children. After he learned that, along with some other lessons, in grade school he also started to stand up to the meaner kids in his class whom had been picking on him. While he never got into fights he was skilled at making sure the bullies stopped what they were doing via tricking them, or getting a teacher. His father taught him how to use a wooden sword in middle school came along and he was quickly becoming a brilliant young man with a great future. He was one of the more popular kids in his first year of middle school but then tragedy struck when his mother died in a bridge collapse and her body was never recovered but her ring was found on a nearby shore by a family friend who had watched the event happen from a nearby office building. This left a lasting impact on the boy for years who mourned his mother in his own way. Unlike his father who was miserable for years to come; Takumi decided that he would become a man his mom would be proud of and wanted to show that he could do whatever he wanted to do. Takumi was branded as the middle school's bully rustler that year and unlike in grade school he got into fist fights and won most of them and made draws with those he couldn't.
This didn't last however as Takumi's father decided to go back to Japan as he had financial issues and personal problems he needed to take care of. His grandfather took his father back in and Takumi learned a lot from the aging minister. Watching the man work was a wonder despite his limited Japanese and Takumi grew even more inspired to become stronger. He was an instant star in the Japanese school he went to in Kyoto which was a public school as his father couldn't afford to send him to a private school. He not only quickly grasped the Japanese language but on his first day he easily wiped out the school's top bully earning his quite the amount of popularity. Up until his senior year of middle school he had even formed a little gang which was formed by kids who hated bullying as much as he did and those who hated all the stuffy traditional stuff as well because the western culture from Canada, Takumi brought with him interested them. He was nicknamed Gold as a show of respect by those who knew him and to keep him from smearing his family's name. During this time his uncle has also taught him more of the traditional Japanese sword play and he grew even more skilled at that. He graduated middle school and during summer got into a small gang war with a group of bullies who had united and had barely won it when he was transferred to Inaba with his uncle and aunt; while his father and grandfather worked at a meeting in Tokyo. His hardships over the years had molded him into a very cunning man and it showed in the smaller town. A few of his friends followed him there but they disbanded his old gang. He changed his style as well in the past he had worn his uniform from school a lot and had been in casual western clothes a lot. He decided that this fresh new start dictated that he would need to change that and went into a more conservative outfit in his black jacket, plain white t-shirt, black shoes, and all the other accessories that went along with it. On top of that he was quickly nominated for student council for the first years because of it.
He started out as vice president and took the nickname of the Black Jacket Ace from his attire and his various skill set. However he was forcibly promoted to president despite his objections when the other one couldn't get the job done. After the first year was done he had quit and did not join any clubs for the second year of his life while trying to make sure his old life didn't leak into his new one. He had no choice but to stay with his aunt and uncle to finish school in Inaba when his father told him that he couldn't come back due to work issues. Takumi proved to be a tough young man though and even helped the police on a few occasions making himself known as a helpful, interesting, and tough young man who actually worked for the law instead of against it but he put it down to him only doing his public duty. Despite this he made it a critical statement not to make to many friends and only stuck around his old group and his old club members occasionally. However he was also shang hai'd into joining the baseball team near the end of the season when the co-captain resigned and put him in there. He was a skillful player and planner and helped the team achieve it's final victories but only slightly. He tried his best to make sure that he didn't become to arrogant because he seemed to attract rivals in various forms. People are mixed about him in Inaba; some find him helpful and kind, some respectful and quiet, some people even think he is an attention hog or has a dark secret or something along those lines. He has decided to continue to be the co-captain of the baseball team this year if only to not let his friends down.
