Ouka wasn't sure if she was nervous, excited, panicked, or still sad about the passing of the queen. Maybe it was all of the above. At least one of those feelings was why she was currently avoiding her mother until the passing on of the powers.
She was to take her mother's place as Sailor Jupiter, and such a burden weighed heavily on her mind. Jupiter was the planet of might and protection. Ouka was very worried that she wouldn't be able to fill her mother's shoes. While well trained in the martial arts by her mother, Ouka was quite different from her mother in many ways. She didn't seem to inherit her mother's great stature, being quite short compared even to the other girls her age. While she did enjoy the training, and even combat to a certain extent, she didn't quite have her mother's ferocity and confidence... or at least she hadn't found that "fire" inside herself yet. Either way she was a great deal less confident than her mother. She had inherited her mother's great skills at cooking, but that was neither here nor there.
Ouka kept he brown, wavy hair at shoulder length, pulled back with a headband, the same green her mother often wore. She was dressed in a Light green, short sleeve shirt and black pants. While being a child of the planetary court she often had to wear fancy dresses and the like, she always preferred these more easy to move in cloths and wore then as often as she could. She would likely be asked to wear something for the coronation, so she wanted to get as much comfy clothing time as possible before then. She walked on with no real destination in mind, her hazel eyes drifting over her surroundings. She was just trying to kill time before the appointed moment when the powers were passed on to her, wondering if she would have to put on something more "formal" for when she received them.
"The planet of might and protection..." she murmured to herself.
That word, protection, really stuck with her. While all of the girls would be charged with the protection of the princess, her mother had explained that job of defending would belong chiefly to her. She was like the "goalie", and she was honestly not sure she was up for the challenge. And if she wasn't up to that challenge that could mean that a friend of hers would end up dead. There hadn't been any threats to the kingdom in a while, but her instincts told her that now that the queen had passed away, something would try take advantage of the absence.
She tried not to think about it but it was hard to push out of her mind.
