PostSubject: Azumi Kael   Azumi Kael Icon_minitimeThu Feb 02, 2012 7:51 pm

Name: Azumi Kael

Age: 17

Bounty: 0

Species: Human

Occupation: Grappler, Martial artist, Challenger, Exhibitionist fighter

Allegiance: Unaligned

Home Village/Ocean: South Blue (near karate island)

Appearance:
Azumi is just under average height for a woman her age with a naturally slender body type, but that hasn’t stopped her from training herself to the point of having a real fighters body. From far away Azumi might look feminine if not slightly curvy but her muscles have been toned to near perfection, though by no means bulky her body has been sculpted for maximum practical functionality, in short a body type that has become completely physically fit with out changing from her given body type in the first place, a body that is rare as it cannot be achieved by building up muscles with weights or normal exorcise but only through fighting alone. This unique pattern of muscles on her body is less based in increased, bulky muscle mass but more in muscle density, this makes her appear nearly ordinary and allows her to fight with maximum power with out sacrificing speed. Almost appearing lanky and slender her body is, on close inspection well toned and healthy looking with moderately tan skin. Her dark chestnut, lower back length hair is kept pulled strait in to a topknot like ponytail with another tie at the very base of it. Her bangs, though under shoulder length fall to either side of her face, the right side of which has a red streak. When her ponytail is down her hair actually takes on a mildly wavy form framing her face. Azumi has wide, somewhat rounded brown eyes and has a face that strikes a nice balance between rounded and angular in features, shed be pretty attractive if she actually put any work in to her appearance. Azumi wears a variety of outfits but tends to gravitate tward a light, functional pair of black double-weave gi pants, held up with a gold embroidered black belt, simple white gi jacket with chest wrappings, along with matching wrappings over her feet and hands, witch are more functional than anything else, being wrapped around several layers so as to protect her extremities. Azumi carries a pack on her back while traveling which contains the rest of her possessions, though her outfits frequently change during major periods of her storyline.
(other outfits will be included here as they develop)

History:
Birth: Azumi was born on the south blue in the summer climate of Karate Island, an entire island nation devoted to all manor of martial arts. It is often said that in this place anyone can learn any martial art they wish, from novice fighters to world government specialists combatants flock to the island to learn techniques and hone their skills. In an island where dojos outnumber houses and martial arts master is the most common profession Azumi began her life as the only child of the third generation of an experimental martial art on the remote northern coast of the island. On their island self-taught styles were extremely common and the openness of the island allowed them to thrive on results but superiority on Karate Island was something to be proven and the family martial art was weak to begin with. Though once a promising student with enough power to be declared independent her grandfather, mother and father all failed to advance this training and eventually the style of “Katado” (way of fighting forms) fell in to obscurity. It was from this stagnation that Azumi came to be the crux for the hopes and dreams of a martial art’s ambition. Azumis birth as a girl considered was inconsequential, regardless of her gender she would have no purpose but martial arts from the instant she was born.
Early Childhood: Unlike other children Azumi was never taught things like how to play, edicate, or even education beyond basic literacy, from day one it was always “become strong”. In this way Azumi’s early childhood years were driven entirely by this fundamental idea, to become powerful meant to establish herself, it meant that through the pursuit of victory in combat she could be considered as being worthy; worthy of the type of stern, difficult to understand type of love she became accustom to from her strict parents as well as esteem for herself. Azumi lacked the typical aversion to violence little girls normally had, sparing with other students from the early age of four was made to be commonplace, the pain of being struck with dangerous force and the understanding that she was to floor her opponent was made second nature to her from her earliest memory. She harbored no sadness to the fact that others were defeated as a mater of course, nor did she fight to needlessly hurt them, she fought with out malice much in the way a normal child would do schoolwork. She was not unhappy because her situation was not abnormal to her, though it would certainly have seemed traumatic to others. Azumi trained endlessly under a demanding father and caring but distant mother but found happiness in her existence, her strength showed her existence, it proved she mattered, in this way Azumi developed a healthy opinion of herself in her early victories.
Late childhood: Azumi grew quickly but the severity of her training grew faster, many people even among the hardened martial artists of their island began to pitty her upbringing as she was never seen simply being a child, Azumi was always training by some extreme method or another, even at the age of eight she was seen walking up and down steps on her finger tips, striking stones for hours or sparing against kids up to four times older than her but always Azumi had such a simple, serene expression in her eyes, the astonishing truth was that she was at home with such training, it was where she felt the most comfortable, it was to the confused child the only thing that made sense, she found peace in it. As she grew her body type became more apparent, slender and almost potentially beautiful she didn’t seem made out for fighting, but the thought literally never once occurred to her that something else could even be an option. Eventually as her father permitted her to train in other dojos Azumi made many friends across the island, not because of her social skills but because of her captivating spirit. Even when kicked across the room, or flipped on to the mat Azumi never showed any signs of unhappiness, and weather she won or lost she never showed any signs of being a sore loser or winner, this made her an endearing student at most of the dojos she trained at. It wasn’t until the ambitions of her family style began to become clear to her that any sort of issue occurred.
Adolescence: At the age of twelve when she began to become a woman Azumi was entered in to planed martial arts competitions. She was told to channel any anger of confusion she had in to her martial art, and that her body’s changes were no excuse for a lapse in training. Azumi began to feel a disconnect for the failure world of fighting she had experienced before when she was made to believe how important victory was, that defeat was unacceptable. This began to cause Azumi to feel alienated and unhappy with fighting for the first time, and it showed in her attitude. As she fought in competitions her ordinal carefree, almost sweet attitude changed and she began to defeat her opponents swiftly and unforgivingly. Though her victories brought her happiness and more love than ever from her proud parents defeats now carried a strong sense of failure, something Azumi did not like. By the time she was fourteen she had already won many competitions and could easily contend with students of martial arts twice her age. It was from there that her training intensified. She began to face wild beasts and more dangerous opponents to prove her skill against, her training and physical conditioning came to an end, and from that point on she was only to train by fighting. On a journey with her family at the age of fifteen Azumi was taken to a large building made up of dojo after dojo stacked on top of each other and told to train there for some time until she reached the top ten floors. Azumi obeyed and it was in this tower that she spent the next two years. It wasn’t until Azumi stopped fighting simply for victories, and began to fight for the fun of it that she was transformed from a martial artist to a warrior, her ordinal attitude toward fighting was aloud to return with the absence of her parents influence and she began to rebel by adopting her own, almost zen like state of happiness in fighting, placing less importance on titles and victories and more importance on the personal fulfillment the fights gave her, even going as far as to put her own spin on the families mixed martial arts style. By the time she had completed her task, she was an adult, different from before in every way. She returned home on her own where she was tested in a fight against her beloved family. To her surprise, she won fairly easily, her parents had pushed her much harder than they had ever pushed themselves to become strong, and for that she was thankful. She spent a few months at home with them, sharing closeness she hadn’t before as a child but eventually decided that overwhelming challenge was what made her happiest and decided to embark on a journey across the wide unknown world to train herself.
Leaving Karate island: Though there are many reasons to travel the world, and perhaps many more reasons to become stronger, Azumi had little reason for either apart from that it was something to do. She left Karate Island by a ferry one mourning, bidding farewell to her family and friends in favor of greater challenges, she quickly found that in the outside world women were seldom considered powerful, and very rarely physical fighters. She learned that it was a dangerous world populated by criminals who used deadly weapons and cursed devil’s fruits to achieve rank and power. Even with all this she still found the prospect of the outside world exiting and pressed on, challenging herself against fighter after fighter, man and beast alike to become stronger as she always had.

Personality:
Azumi is a rather unusual person in the sense that she has a deceptively simple outlook on things. Down to earth and practical in nature under it all but she still comes across as brash and confrontational most of the time; this is from a lifetime of martial arts. There is no question she desires fighting fundamentally but unlike most this is not out of a selfish desire to be the strongest or an ambitious quest for rank and influence, rather she fights simply to fight. She fights for the same reason great men and women climb mountains, because the mountains are there in the first place; she fights as an end, not a means. This is not to say Azumi enjoys violence naturally, or that she is in any way sadistic, far from it Azumi is simply someone at home with the purity of fair combat. She seems to be a “one note” person and perhaps that’s true but she goes about it in a complex yet honorable way. She has no interest in weak or injured opponents, as the fight she would have with them would not have any beneficial experience for her. In the same way she is uninterested in fighting unwilling opponents and has a difficult to understand code of criteria when it comes to selecting her target opponents in combat. She is however somewhat aloof when it comes to fighting armed opponents, specifically ones with firearms supernatural weapons and devil fruits, grouping them in with drugs and steroids as unethical performance enhancers. She has little interest in unbalanced fights and distaste for those who do not use their own power to solve problems. This is reflected in the unique way Azumi views titles, she would not, for example, consider someone with the title of “shichibukai” as having the title at all if they relied on a devil fruit to use it, instead she would claim the devil fruit itself has the title, as its power is what earned it. Azumi has a vast knowledge of fighting just from her own experiences and though not unintelligent is undereducated both academically and socially being under-civilized and inexperienced in the ways of the world. On that note, Azumi has never once considered having romantic feelings for anyone and is very bad at determining peoples motivation, often her undoing is when uncomfortable with a situation she will flee to the only thing that makes perfect sense, combat. This leads her to be seen as a violent person but few understand that fighting is her coping mechanism for painful or confusing feelings as it always has been. Azumi is rather defensive about her various shortcomings as her self-esteem is strongly tied to her ability to beat away any problems she may face. She carried a true warriors mentality despite being a seventeen-year-old girl, yet at the same time has a seventeen-year-old girl’s inner uncertainty despite being a warrior. The fundamental lacking in various areas she had in her upbringing is more than compensated by her natural acceptance of situations and natural practicality overshadowed by a competitive, uniquely brash nature.

Ship: none

Ship Flag: none

Devil Fruit: None

Special Abilities:
Martial arts skill: Azumi has an independent fighting style developed from a long history of fighting against various others, one that draws influence from the many styles which exist on karate island and the various foes shes encountered in her experience, but the force and finesse of combat as well as the knowledge of force and anatomy that comes with mastery of any style is still very much her own.
Peak physical condition/athleticism: Azumi is more than a top-notch athlete; rather she can only be considered a warrior, pushed by training well beyond the limits she was born under. The speed of a sprinter, the balance plasticity of a gymnast, the reactions of a boxer, the strength of a heavyweight lifter, the stamina of a marathon runner and the co-ordination of a master fighter. Though able to maneuver her body like a track and field star and she is also able to sustain a constant effort requiring the utmost of brute force. Unlike other athletes her training of her body is complete, every part of her, from her limbs to her neck to her back and even her finger is trained for maximum performance and functionality.
Endurance and stamina: Perhaps the greatest aspect of Azumi’s repertoire as a fighter is that she is “built like a punching bag” in the sense that she shares an attribute in common with many great fighters in history, she is able to take blow after blow and avoid going down, breaking bones and crushing blows serve to injure her but as an experienced fighter they do not simply knock her out, some may claim that this is her unshakable warriors spirit in reality its just a feat of extreme physical toughness.
Muscle memory learning: Azumi learns by doing, plain and simple, in any fight shes in she gains a working understanding of an opponents stance and physical movements, provided they are movements done exclusively with ones body. She is able to develop her own techniques from concepts and movements her body learns during combat, mainly by receiving the brunt of attacks.

Learned Techniques (Keep it 1-25):
-Strikes and blows: Able to throw all manor of japs, hooks, uppercuts, and cross punches; palm, knife hand, ridge hand, spear hand, hammer fist, extended knuckle, knee and elbow strikes; front, side, roundhouse, low, flying, axe and butterfly kicks, even head-butts and tackle strikes using the same principles of timing, muscular tension, breath control, focus, footwork and gravity for maximum damage
-Throws and holds: Ample at both standing and ground grappling Azumi can use various takedowns, clinches, turnovers, pins, and submission holds,; as well as shoulder, hip, leg, and pick up throws, able to perform grappling techniques easily even on opponents that far out class her in weight and grain by exorcising carful direction of force
-Blocking and countering: Azumi is able to use inside, outside, high, low and even parry blocks in her martial arts with her limbs and even joints quite effectively using various stances. More than that shes able to ignore the shock and pain of a successfully blocked blow to the part of her body she blocks with enough to allow her to counter the blocked strike with a throw or grapple with out hesitation, this includes the ability to catch attacks with her superior reflexes
-Reversals and counterblows: Perhaps superior to Azumis ability to block attacks is her ability to react to them, her best technique involves a counterstrike, or simply using an offensive strike to stop an oncoming attack, this is often successful as the opponent is still in mid swing (a variable and effective “combo breaker”). Azumi is also skilled at “natural action” when it comes to re-directing her opponent’s blows away from her, effectively neutralizing a technique with a simple openhanded movement.
-Dogging and evading: From a lifetime of fighting Azumi has gained an extraordinary evasive ability able to slip, sway, duck, bob and weave around most types of blows in close quarters, able to exorcise body rotation, flexibility, footwork and split second focus to avoid the fast paced blows of a higher level fight but perhaps the most extraordinary feat of this ability is the way she can “roll with” a high speed blow to reduce damage; for example, if a strait punch was coming toward her head she would simple rotate her neck in the same direction at a speed faster than the fist, the result would be “dodging” the force even after the physical “blow” touched her reducing a significant portion of that damage, though this technique is more complicated and fails against complex attacks
-Gymnastic skills: Even though she’s a fighter Azumi is a capable gymnast, perhaps because of her lighter build but also due to her extensive physical training, able to perform vaults, tumbling, summersaults, and other such acrobatic feats during a fight.
-Use of fighting forms (or “Kata”): Azumi has come up against nearly every major fighting style on the seas, karate, kung fu, boxing, jujitsu, akido, kickboxing, wrestling, even self taught, obscure styles, and though her understanding is leagues behind actual students of these styles her mastery over stances and forms as well as in the execution of simple movements is profoundly complete for a mixed fighter such as herself because of her ability to adapt her body’s positions to mimic or personify things she witnesses, though this is little more than “monkey see monkey do” at first by practicing after a match and training over time she can develop stances in to their own styles, but is unable to copy anything during an actual fight.

Weapons/Items: Nothing but clothing

Character Flaws:
Lack of non-practical skill: Having only ever training in fighting Azumi is unable to sail a ship, read a map, or indeed do most of the things central to surviving in a sea fairing society, fighting remains her sole talent skill and option in any situation.
Uneducated: Though Azumi has had plenty of education, almost all of it has been in martial arts and survival techniques, though literate and in no way mentally unfit she has never been shown the finer aspects of arts, literature, humanities, logic, science or mathematics near the level of many commoners
One track mind: Often people are surprised to learn that Azumi has no dreams or ambitions other than to continue to fight and challenge herself but few realize that this is literally all she thinks about most of the time, having no interest or attention span when it comes to most other things, even when they should be of relevance to her
Inexperience: Azumi is at home in a fight, it’s the main situation that makes sense to her, Azumi is not at home, therefore, in any other situation, for example the drinking and gambling of a pirate ship or the decorum of a high society gathering, all equally disarming to her making it rather easy to fool or trick her, though she tends to compensate for this by attempting to fight her way out of an unfamiliar or unfavorable situation she remains both naive and wild to the point of a debilitating fault.
Fickle nature: Azumi has very specific criteria in what she looks for in terms of an opponent, her refusal to face opponents with devil fruits, supernatural weapons and firearms, though a viable choice in terms of survival could ultimately prove fatal. More than that Azumi refuses to use SIQ, devil fruits, steroids or weapons, as she does not believe in using them to enhance her performance despite the obvious advantage they would have, making her arguably blind to her own potential.

Goals: Is driven only by the simple drive to fight and become stronger, a fundamental purpose instilled in her since the very beginning of her memory, she needs no ultimate end for this as the outcome remains irrelevant as long as she continues to exist in the way she does
