Full Name: Mayuri Kimura
Personality: May's On Stage and Off Stage Personas differ greatly, on stage she is a wild child, a wreckless and crazed torrent of energy, easily able to steal the spotlight from any other member of the band, but only enough to ensure she's never just " the Bass Player." Flaming amps and stage diving are nothing unusual for any night May is on stage. Off Stage May is a completely different person, very quiet and reserved, often spending hours alone reading a book, or writing music. She may not be the hard living partier that the rest of the band is, but she's always shown she can hold her own when the party starts, able to drink more than her small stature should allow, though its a rare occasion she goes that far. She usually ends up as the calm, relaxed, voice of reason between other band members and occasionally the deciding factor when discussions start to become arguments. Quiet and introverted she may be, don't ever let her quiet demeaner and small stature fool you, May will always stand up for what she believes in and is extremely loyal to her friends.
History/Background: May was born in Nakano, Japan, a prefecture of Tokyo, her mother Ishi, owned a restaurant and her father, Hatori worked for a shipping company. May's family was not rich, but they did their best to give her everything she needed, and most everything she wanted, While maintaing a strict household. When May was 4 she was diagnosed with a severe case of Bilateral Retinoblastoma, almost dying twice before she was left completely blind. By the time she was 6, May was already fascinated with music and set out to learn to play it. Her parents paid for and pushed her through,professional lessons in both Piano and Cello, both of Which May took to instantly, but nothing was ever good enough for her parents. When May was 12, a position became available at a music school for the blind in America, so her family moved so that she could get an even better education. May used her time there well, but switched to a regular high school when she was 14. By the time May became a teenager, she was already beginning to rebel against her strict upbringing, she was getting straight A's, she was a brilliant Musician playing Piano, Cello, Violin, and Flute,but there was something missing in her life, something she had been craving for awhile, Rock and Roll. The Music, the Lifestyle, the environment, it was calling to her. May's parents of course did not approve of such music, and continued to push May into good grades and classical music. When some of her friends started a band, May was very supportive, always in the front row of every show, quite often having to sneak out to do it, and suffering the ramifications when she got home. May helped out her friends however she could, setting up equipment, cleaning up, holding the singer's hair back on numerous occasions, while they prayed to the porcelain god. but after 3 failed bass players, May took initiative. 2 Months of rigorous practice later, and May had not only learned a new instrument, but had memorized the bands fledgling song list. When the 4th bassist left the band in a fit of dickish anger, right before a huge show, May stepped on stage for the first time. She was nervous, she'd never performed live with this little practice, but that didn't last long, the show was flawless, the crowd was rocked, the club was in shambles,and a new era of Epicness that is Genesis of Despair was born.
