Kokoro Miyake-Koden» Age:
Five Feet, Six Inches (168 centimeters)» Weight:
138 pounds (62 kilograms)
Of the three Miyake sisters, Kokoro is the most mature and trustworthy, trained to be that way from an early age. She is the one that handles the majority of the disputes amongst family, cleaning up the messes that they make. Naomi may be the older of them all, and Kimiyo may be destined to be a leader, but it is Kokoro where most of the responsibilities fall, and her that ends up being accountable for the group. She is an efficient and hard-working individual as a result of this, and rarely complains about the work she does. Sometimes she goes out of her way to take on jobs that'll make the lives of her sisters just a little bit easier, looking after them like more of a parent than a sibling.» Sophisticated:
While it's easy to tell what kind of people her sisters are, Kokoro possesses a set of finer tastes that she tends to keep to herself. She grew up a bookworm, spending the majority of her days in libraries reading until she fell asleep. She is not just fond of liquor but a connoisseur of beers, wines, sakes, and other varieties of alcohol. When she isn't around her sisters, she is usually using her free time for the sake of personal studies. She has a much deeper intellect than she lets on, something she'll only give subtle hints toward from time to time. This is because she'd rather fit in with those around her. But, given the opportunity, Kokoro is one for cerebral activities and conversation, as one will find out in something as simple as a game of chess.» Altruistic:
Generosity resides more strongly in Kokoro than it does in most, as she receives the most positive emotion from the act of giving to those in need. This is not just a general selflessness; Kokoro is well-educated of local charities and consistently donates to such causes with her leftover money. As someone who wants to make the world a better place, she feels this is one of the best ways to do it. Then, of course, there is Kokoro's desire to put others before her, and rarely accept charity on her behalf. She comprehends the fact that there are millions of people in the world who were simply born worse off than her, and that is the reason she always feels undeserving of others generosity, always wishing to give away her own gifts instead.» Drinker:
A flaw, or a quirk, however one views it; Kokoro is highly susceptible to liquor. Not only does she love the taste so much that she spends an exorbitant amount on it and partakes of it more than is healthy, but the effects of intoxication are especially extreme for her. It takes very little to tip her over the edge into a drunken stupor, drastically shifting her personality and reversing some of her primary traits. She becomes highly irresponsible, forgetful, and foolish; as well as frivolous and lewd. For better or for worse, this is something that'll stay with Kokoro as she seems to have no interest in kicking the addiction.
Just like her sisters Naomi and Kimiyo, Kokoro possesses a fully-fledged body of a woman, with seemingly perfect form and curvature.
In some of the most rare of chances in the process of birth, some one in every thousand generations of a single family line, the odd occurrence of a mutation takes place. It is a distortion of one's genetics, permanently set from the point of conception until death. Often times this transformation is small and harmless, nothing more than say... a change from a natural hair color to a rich oceanic blue. Other times, it is for the worst, perhaps incapable of being supported by the human genome, resulting in death. But perhaps the most uncommon of all, is a large-scale mutation that completely rewrites what others understand of the human body. Evolution, as one scientist has put it; mutations that allow human beings to transcend previously set limits, birthing new bloodlines of power. Each great family today has gone through this transformation, giving supernatural power to entire family trees. The Miyake family is one of such ancestries, who would be live to modern day to become known as the Family of Strength. To this day, every female along the line has achieved powers with no exception, and the most common theme among them has been inhuman strength. The males may or may not have also achieved some sort of gifts, but have always been outshone by the other side of the family.
True to Miyake, the family was composed of three houses that all were known as "Miyake." Though, the individual houses each had their own name known among other members of the family. Shuryou was the head of the three houses, as the legends of the Miyake family have always come from their shrines, and it was also the house of the Miyake's founding father. Following Shuryou was Hogosha, the shield of the Miyake family, or more literally the "Guardians." The Hogosha were created originally to protect the uppermost house of the Shuryou, and breed warriors of the utmost caliber. Over time, the tradition has softened, but the same ideals remain the same. Those of the Hogosha house are raised to protect the Miyake lineage, and consistently produce powerful warriors. Finally, the Koden branch of the family are the last house, primarily focused on maintaining the past of the Miyake family. While the Shuryou lead the way for each new generation of the family, it is up to those of the Koden to make sure that their beginnings are not forgotten along the way. Here is where the wiser, more intellectual members of the family are born; though, that is not to say that it lacks strength.
The Miyake family has been like this for ages, and a careful balance between the three houses within has been maintained with a system of checks and balances. Each part has a strength over another in some way. With that in place, the three houses has kept peace, build bonds even through the roughest of times, and remained a powerful, outstanding family in the world of the living. In modern day, every generation the three houses each offer up a child that represents their strength, the best among their youth. Those three grow up together as sisters, and as avatars. Through this, the bonds between one another grow stronger, and it also shows the world just what the Miyake family is made of. However, this generation
, something incredible stirred within the bloodlines. It occurred throughout all three houses; a miracle child was born with capability beyond what the Miyake could have ever imagined. This abnormality was more than just inhuman, it was an act of god. It was like another step on the stairs of evolution: A mutation just like the one that had formed the family in the first place. It was the fact that one such child from each house had advanced at the same time that was the most shocking. With pride, Kimiyo Miyake of the Shuryou house, Naomi Miyake of the Hogosha house, and Kokoro Miyake of the Koden house were put forth as the avatars of this generation. A new era was to begin with them.
