» Appearance Description:
Anu is a young woman a bit on the short side, with a slender and lean body, a young lady defined by a lithe but fleshy frame. Her face is soft and rounded, her wide cheeks being the most prominent feature, giving the girl a slight childish look, coupled with a dark skinned complexion, courtesy of her mother’s Indian heritage. The facial features are defined by small heart-shaped lips, high cheekbones, chubby cheeks, and a small button nose to top it all off. Connecting the head with these features is a thin, medium sized neck. The visage is accompanied by a pair of rounded almond shaped Violet
colored eyes, orbs that are shadowed by anu’s secrets of which she keeps protectively to herself, topped with gently rounded eyebrows and naturally thick eyelashes.. Her usual expression is, well, a lack of one. Anu’s face is one of blankness, never displaying anything that could betray what she was feeling.
The young woman’s lineaments are outlined by short, layered Orchid
hued hair that, in the back, just barely reaches the top of her neck. The styling is similar to a short hime cut hairstyle, with two particular long tendrils hanging on either side of her face, reaching just under her chin. The hair is usually held back by a headband that has something of horns, or maybe really nubby cat ears, something she has around with her for as long as she could remember.
Anu’s structure is similar to that of a triangle, with a slender and smaller upper body yet fuller lower, giving it the illusion of a hourglass figure. Her arms are short in length and lean in design. Her legs are pretty much the same, while being much more supple, giving her a rather short height as a result. Characterized with the rest of her body are narrow shoulders, full hips, tiny waist and a regular sized bust. Miss Maito also has a flat, lean stomach, along with a mysterious looking tattoo of a skull with wings just barely above the lining of her upper V line. The girl is noted to be carrying herself in a calm and stoic manner, no movement showing deliberation or pre thought actions. » Appearance Picture:

» Personality: CynicalDue to her upbringing by Takahiro, it is of no surprise that Anu’s most prominent feature is her cynicism. She wholly and fully believes in the absolute mindset that all people are selfish and work only for their own pure self interest. Because of this, she has large amounts of distrust and wry feelings towards almost everyone she has ever, and will, come across. Even to this day, she still has the unwavering, distorted thought that believes that humanity as a whole, is manipulative and conniving, that they all wish to use her like a tool, an object. That they wished to mock her. As expected as the result of this way of thinking, Anu is someone full of skepticism, managing to appear like ice to all she meets, even after possibly knowing them for months or years. Its simply because of the fact that she is a pessimist, so she believes heavily in this mindset as she has seen it in the past and harshly believes that the past is doomed to repeat itself, no matter how hard you or anyone tries to resist.NihilisticNihilism Is something within the girl that just came to her naturally, even as a young child, but she never noticed nor understood it until she was much older. Her mother wasn’t religious, nor was anyone in the Gashadokuro family, further pushing and influencing Anu into this belief, or disbelief. She rejects every form of religion and its practices, ruling them in her word of law as worthless and foolish. In her mind, all forms of religion is just a temporary comfort from the truth for simpletons who are foolish enough to fall for it. An atheist of sorts in the eyes of many others due to this way of thinking, the woman could be described as a skeptic due to her complete utter disregard for even the slightest thought of there being some forms of Gods. Sure, demons and devils may be true, but would they really be roaming around if there was a pathetic “God” around to prevent it? Anu squints at the mere thought. Coupled with that fact, the assassin does not believes that life is meaningless, believing that anything people do are worthless and that they are just prolonging their meeting with the true and only “God”, Death. PhlegmaticNot only trained to be someone with large amounts of control over her emotions and how they are distributed, but the unemotional deposition is something that comes naturally to the young female. Almost completely emotionally cold and unnerved, she compares herself to a statue, unfeeling in almost every way she moves, talks and interacts. Her barrier is nigh unbreakable to everyone but herself, as only those with the strongest persistence and determination would be lucky enough to even see a crack in the she composure she worked very hard to build, depending on the buttons they correctly press and coordinate. Truly an antisocial, the girl works to avoid this, in any way and form, preferring her alone time than rather face someone trying to become “buddy buddy” with the woman. Her interactions with others could be described as either dispassionate, or impassive, as her voice barely rises above a low octave and everything she says is straight to the point, wasting no time. As such, the way she carries is that similar to a lifeless doll, or as a trained and deliberate murderer in other cases. MisanthropeHeavily due to her past and its experiences, Anu is completely adverse and hateful to anyone of the human race, herself included. A “hate of mankind”, as some would say, the woman reasons that her hate for humans is due to her personal distrust with their natural human “instincts”. Their inborn selfishness, greed, and constant need to be at the top makes the her feel strong revulsion to them and everyone, and everything, associated with the particular race. The likelihood of Anu establishing a relationship of any sort with those born as humans are quite low, as her hateful words, racism and resentment would either push them away, or she would attempt to cause them harm if they set a determined path to attempt getting close to the assassin. As such, on an instant basis when meeting someone from a human lineage, they are instantly on her bad side and she may even refuse to look in their general direction. However, when it comes to those from different races, she has a more neutral feel around them, being her usual cold and unfeeling cynic self, not feeling any particularly strong feelings towards them until they show who they are as a person and then she makes her judgements.Homicidal Rage
A complete contrast to her natural frigid and indifferent personality is something deep inside the young woman that is triggered and released in an almost uncontrollable manner once she has lost that composure, due to the fact that her thoughts of harming others, those she consider lower and weak, proves to be too much for her and she allowed it loose. It could be referred to as something more akin to a completely new state of mind, as Anu becomes more feral and nefarious, almost crazed in a sense. When interacting acting with others in this state, her voice is wild and much more erratic as she speaks, complementing the daring actions she takes on. Anu's interactions while experiencing this plight still show strong signs of a complete disregard for others, and even less for herself. Furthermore, the young woman also presents a much more vulgar vocabulary, coupling it with absolute crudeness, sinking further into delirium. Of course, to top it all off, the young woman is more of a killer during this different persona's takeover, carrying out all of Anu's anger and want for revenge, basically acting out all of the human's whims, as it attempts to eliminates the cause of the thoughts.Personality Traits
- Lack of Empathy
- Truthful (?)
Personal Alone Time
Anu was born in rural town Nagiso-cho, Nagano. There, she was born into the world by a woman by the name of Rohana and a mysterious man whose name is unknown. Said mystery man disappeared almost immediately after her birth, as he viewed the child as a mistake, an accident after a one-night stand with her mother. Rohana had a completely different mindset with the situation, however. Contrasting the disgust of her child's father, the young Indian woman adored the child even before Anu's birth. She wasn't rich, but provided what she could in preparation for the new life that was to appear soon. All this she did alone, but it bothered her none. All she really wanted was companionship, after all. She was a lonely woman, being the only living member of her immediate family after a tragic car accident when Rohana was sixteen years old. Her extended family members turned her away when she came for help, all for their own petty reasons, with the most common being that she was disowned by the family due to her "promiscuous" ways. It was all gossip between the elders, honestly, and none of it made any difference to Rohana. Instead, she trudged on, new child in toe, as she attempted to better her life after becoming a mother, even going as far as to rent out an old, raggedy apartment with the spare money she had, all for the fact that she didn't want the girl to be born homeless into the world. And with that, barely scraping by as a Lady of the Night to provide for both herself and her child, Rohana somehow managed to create and maintain the illusion of a steady life and home for young Anu Naito.
As such, due to all her mother's hard work throughout a healthy four-year span, Anu was your almost average, happy four-year-old. She attended school, made friends easily because of her bubbly nature, making the young four-year old’s life seem like a fairy tale, at least to her. Her mother cared for adoringly, each day was like some new adventure, and she had friends that she loved to play with. It was more than what she could ever hope for. However, like the reality of all “fairy tales”, every beautiful thing Anu experienced, came at the expense of her mother’s well-being. She wasn’t sick, no, but with each new year, things got more and more expensive, which in turn required for Rohana to spend more time out at night to pay for their bills and Anu’s increasing amount of care she required. Being a Lady of the Night was no easy job, especially when she had a young girl at home to think about, someone she had to set an example for as a woman. She wanted to do better for her child, to be better. So, at the cost of her physical wellness and mental state, Rohana made her choice of sacrifice. She would continue this job, but with a new twist to her desperate life with the help of a mysteriously cloaked man. Only later, once she was in too deep to fall back, did she realize the horrors of her choice. It was only when it came to the young girl’s seventh birthday did the force of stress on her body and mind finally take their toll on the woman.
It was deep in winter when it crashed into their lives like the unwanted guest it was, crashing rudely upon Anu's sixth birthday. Anu didn’t exactly know why her mom seemed so sick suddenly, was it because she was always out so late? Her eyebrows would always furrow at the thought, pondering at the memories of her pretending to sleep while she watched her mom get all dressed up in some very unsafe clothing and leave her home alone, not returning until her young daughter had two hours to get ready for school. She didn’t know much about the world, but she knew that was not usually what mommies did, as she would compare with her classmates. But instead the girl shrugged it off, it was always the possibility her mother was special, after all. Instead of worrying about it, Anu waved it off, besides, Rohana was already trying to distract the girl from it by spoiling and splurging her with sweets and all kinds of things. A decision the girl came to regret years later, but what could she really do? It didn’t matter what she could have did anyway, because in a few months things got much worse.
Rohana couldn’t pay the bills anymore, she was too sick to go out and ‘work’, and the landlord was starting to get annoyed. Anu was getting scared, the landlord was a much older man and known for his rough handling of tenants who attempted to out of paying rent. Every now and then he would come and pound upon their door, demanding her mother to pay the bills, lest he forcefully kick them onto the curb. It would frighten Anu with each of his visits, especially as his demands and threats starting getting much more violent. They became so much more frequent and worrisome, that Rohana had even forbidden Anu from going to school, in fear of him catching her going to and from school and holding her as a trading token. At first, staying home from school was cool for the young girl, minus the scary landlord, with eating as much cereal as she wanted and watching cartoons 24/7. Eventually, she became restless and wanted out of their small apartment, whining to Rohana ad throwing fits as her mother tried shushing her. Rohana was getting weary, the threats and demands of the landlord finally wearing in on her. She was especially cautious one particular day, due to Ishiwaka not coming to their door and do his usual banging of demands. It left a puddle of unease in her gut. However, this opportunity left her able to do what she dreaded doing, but the situation was forcing her hand. It pained her, as she told Anu to pack a backpack of clothes, tearfully grabbing her daughter's hand and guiding her down the fire escape, trying her best to block out the innocent curious and trusting eyes that stared back up at her.
This felt wrong.
Hitoka's Caring Orphanage wasn't known for its sanitation or well upkeep, but what mattered right now was that they actually care for their orphans. Besides, it's not like Anu would be staying long, Rohana would say to herself, tightening her grip on her daughter's hand as they walked through the raggedy double doors. Once inside, a small and shriveled elderly woman accompanied by a taller and a younger woman approached the duo. Rohana bowed and began to discuss that seemed to be of utter importance in hushed whispers. Anu looked at her mother and then to the two ladies she was taking to, trying her best to stay hidden behind her mother's pant-leg. Her efforts were in vain, as the elderly woman looked down at the young girl, reaching out a delicate and weak hand to pull her away from Rohana, and with kind words, directed Anu to meet the other children running around the orphanage. They took to the dark skinned girl quickly despite her shy nature. The girls wanted to show her their dolls and the boys wanted to play tag. With so much excitement happening around her, Anu nearly forgot all about her mother and the worried look on her face as the elderly woman took her away earlier. That is, until it was bedtime for he orphans and Anu, also being tired from a day of endless play, began searching for Rohana. But, alas, no matter how high or low she looked, the young girl couldn't find her mother. Worried she had wandered around outside and had possibly collapsed because of her sickness, Anu tried to leave the orphanage in search for her mother, but the tall young woman from earlier stopped her, telling her it was time for bed. Confused, the Naito girl tried telling the woman that her mother needed her help and that she wanted to go home. The blonde's formerly steely eyes softened and she bent down to be on eye level with the frightened girl. She introduced herself as Kimiko and gently told her that her mum would e back later to pick her up and questioned if she would mind staying here with them and the other kids until she returned. Even more confused and slightly fearful from being from being away from her mother with worry about her health, Anu hesitated. However, with Kimiko's warm smile and promise that Rohana would be back for her, the girl slowly agreed. Carefully, the the blonde led the dark skinned child to a bed where the other girls slept. With slight caution and intense worry, Anu slowly fell asleep, where she shut her eyes and later awoke to a new world. Without Rohana.
It had been nearly four years since that fateful day, and since then Anu had almost fit snugly in with the orphan children. Almost. One year ago, while watching one of her friends be adopted, she slipped away from the celebration the other children were having and had wanted to talk to Kimiko and Granny Hitomi about when her mother was supposed to come and get her. She was getting worried and restless after all, her mother hated leaving her alone for long, and vice versa. She could only imagine how much pain she was and knew she needed her to be there for her. However, upon getting closer to Granny's door, Anu slowed her walk as she could here them discussing her at that very much, up until she went to a complete stop. She wasn't sure if she heard them right, nothing seemed real, everything looked like a dream. Stock still, Anu stayed rooted to the spot until Kimiko exited Granny's room and gave a surprised yelp at the sight of Anu just standing there, eyes as wide as saucer plates, the words uttered by Granny swirling around her head, not wanting to believe them, and yet, wanting to cry in that very moment. Kimiko sputtered and tried to think of something to say, but it was too late. The damage had been done. "Did you hear, Kimiko? The police say they've found a woman dead in a park in Osaka. They say her name was..ah, what was it again? Something kinda foreign...Rohana Naito!"
Anu had cried that entire day, the heartbroken pain wracking through her small body. She had pushed everyone away since that day, no longer playing with the other children and sitting of by herself. It worried the two women, as the light that once shown in Anu's violet colored eyes disappeared and became cold. It didn't help business, as many rumors began to fly around, saying Hitoka's Caring Orphanage haunted by a dark purple spirit of vengeance. This in turn did not go well with the children, as they began to outcast Anu, even going as far as to bully her and call her names. This got no reaction from said girl, who would stand there under their abuse and stare at them expressionlessly. Kimiko and Granny Hitomi tried to stop the bullying, but eventually stopped trying and would look away guiltily when these things would occur, which was a rather daily occurrence. As such, when a group of rough looking men came bursting into the orphanage. This, too, was becoming part of the norm. It started about three months ago, when Granny Hitomi was struggling to get out of a money rut. Unlike the other children, Anu wasn't stupid, instead being very observant to everything around her. She that these men were part of some sort of gang, identifiable by the skull tattoo with wings stamped onto their bodies, and Granny Hitomi had obviously borrowed money from them, judging by how they came every month asking for their repayment. Kimiko and Granny Hitomi would scramble around every time they came, gathering up their payment for that month in a hurry to send them on their way. As such, today was no different, except for Anu who stayed where she was and stared down the rowdy group of men while the other children ran and hid in their rooms. It wasn't like the gangsters scared her, they were no different than the children who threw scathing looks at her or the fake guilty looking faces of Kimiko and Granny Hitomi.
Slowly, the girl rose up from her seating position, not caring about how dirty her white dress was, or how scraped her little knees were. She ignored the women scrambling around and walked right up to one of the gangsters and tugged at one of their pant leg, effectively drawing his attention as he look down at her in annoyed confusion. Examining his facial features, he reminded her of Ishiwaka, lineaments rough with dyed blonde hair and an absurd amount of piercings. The man sneered at her, but Anu just stared back listlessly as he barked at her to beat it, saying how this was adult business. Instead, Anu tugged again, murmuring a question. Fake Blondie squinted at her and was going to tell her to repeat what she said when the dark skinned young girl was suddenly pulled away from him abruptly by Kimiko who looked frighteningly between the ten year old and the thug. She jutted out her hand with a grocery bag full of money that, with a bit of grumbling, the thug snatched out of the young woman's hands, calling out that there business here was done to the other thugs and started for the exit when they stopped by a black haired man entering. The dye head called him boss, which made her look up from Kimiko's tight grip on her head to stare at the man in slight curiosity. She wasn't trying to talk to these people for no reason, she needed them to take an interest in her, even if it was the tiniest amount. They were gonna get her out of here, they had. She couldn't stay there, she had no reason to stay there if her mother wasn't going to come get here. A tense moment passed as Anu stared down the looming black haired man in the doorway, and the next few moments went almost too quick for the girl to understand.
Anu had bitten Kimiko's hand, causing the woman to yelp and shove the blonde onto the ground and ran over to attempt tackling the raven haired man's leg, only to be grabbed by the dyed blonde and picked up by the scruff of her dress, where she kicked and struggled in the grip for a moment, only to go limp in the next. Eyes widened in bewildered astonishment as everyone in the room stared at the dark skinned girl in the man's hand. Said man was about to question what the hell was going on, when a foot suddenly connected with his nose, and then his mouth. Another was aimed at his stomach as Anu continued assault only to be shaken harshly by the man, but this didn't stop her. Instead, girl continued, regardless of the violent shaking that eventually began to slow as she landed a particularly hard jab into his stomach, causing the brown eyed man to take a second to catch his breath and growl at the young girl, preparing to backhand her. However, he was stopped by the group boss stopping him. His voice boomed across the orphanage, drawing everyone's attention who had forgotten the man was there. Once he had everyone's attention, the man gave a slight cough to clear his throat and a drag of his cigarette, introducing himself as Kengo Tanaka and gruffly asked the young girl why she was attacking one of his men. His features were sharp and strict, with an aura that basically screamed yakuza, definitely showing he was above the basic grunts like the man who was holding her suspended in air, who's name she learned was Ryu. Anu bit her lip in hesitation, realizing just how dangerous this man could be, but it was too late for her to back down now. Looking up with eyes of determination, she demanded to be let out of the orphanage, saying how she didn't belong here. Kengo blinked at her in shock for a moment, as he was definitely sure that her eyes didn't show emotion from what he remembered. He hid a smirk behind his cigarette and took another long drag of his handheld cancer stick, blowing out the smoke as it were a water stream. His next set of words, however, struck the girl in the heart. ”You're a feisty one, I'll admit. But, you just blatantly attacked a member of the Gashadokuro. Do you even know the penalties of such a crime? Death just happens to be the better of the options, if you're lucky.”
She had to admit to herself that she was scared, even being a bit doubtful of her course of action. Attacking a gang member wasn't the best idea when she thought about it as she sat in the backseat of Kengo's car, a bit after he told the grunts to go finish their usual collecting rounds, excluding Ryu, who joined Kengo. The look on everyone's faces back at the orphanage were full of shock, dread, and another emotion that the girl couldn't quite place until they were entering the Gashadokuro Estate. She clenched her hands in her lap and grit her teeth as she realized that the expressions of their faces was relief. They were relived to get rid of her, she thought, as multiple emotions began to swirl around in her as she gripped at her chest, unsure of the emotions rising in her chest. In all her mixed emotions, Anu didn't take notice of Kengo watching intently her from the drivers seat, observing her actions through his rear view mirror, earning a strange look from the dyed blonde next to him. He gave a slight chuckle but said nothing else as he pulled up to the front doors, exiting the car as Ryu went to yank the the biracial girl out of the car and dragged her up the stairs and through the doors, pulling her along the hallway to the big boss's room. His handling of the child was rough, practically dragging her feet along the expensive dark purple carpet, only stopping once they were directly in front of a large pair of dark brown double doors. Anu struggled against Ryu's grip until he suddenly tossed the girl into the Patriarch's hardwood floor. With his job finished, Kengo waved off Ryu in dismissal. The dye head nodded and trudged off, throwing back the occasional glance to the pathetic looking heap that lay on the leader's floor. Said pathetic looking heap's thud on the floorboards caused the older man in the room to look up from a mountain of paperwork to glance at her and then to Kengo with questioning eyes. The black haired man took a long drag of his cigarette and began to explain what happened at Hitoka's Caring Orphanage. During his whole recollection, Anu sat there on her knees as the men talked, trying to think of what she could do to make the situation better and not die before she could go searching for information on Roman, when the older man stood up, causing his chair to squeak and have Anu look up at the him.
The Patriarch wasn't as old as she thought once she actually looked at him, his face seemed actually quite young. His fine, black and greying hair was swept back with what seemed to be a decent amount of hair gel, along with soft honey colored eyes that made her forget her train of thought. The older man knelt down before and beckoned her further and laughed heartily when he noticed her hesitation. He pointed to himself and gave his name, Takeshi Sato, and pointed out about how Kengo wanted her killed for her assault on Ryu, but rejected with another idea. Sato then went on to explain how he and his wife had recently lost their child to a shoot out with a rival gang and that she was practically grieving her heart out. Anu remained unfazed as he went on to explain that he would deliver her to his wife as a gift of sorts, that he could make her life much better than going out on those rough, cold streets. The ten year old bit the inside of her cheek, she couldn't accept, she had to go, she had to find more info about her mum. Sato noticed her reluctance and questioned Anu about what she expected to find out in harsh earth other than death. Slowly, and with careful thought on what words she used, Anu told the man her past and how she ended up in the orphanage and her quest for the truth. Upon hearing her story, Sato's eyes hardened at the mention of Rohana's name but the look in his eyes disappeared almost immediately afterwards. The Patriarch hummed as he rubbed his stubby chin, then broke into a giant grin as he gave a hearty laugh and slapped the girl on her back. Just then, a tall, beautifully exotic woman entered the office and started speaking her apologies, but gave a pause at the site of Anu sitting before her husband. Sato beckoned his wife over while dismissing Kengo at the same time. The black haired man gave a bow to the boss and tossed the young girl a glance as the Matriarch knelt with the leader on the ground, looking at the biracial child with almost unreal gentleness. He gave a puff of his cigarette as he walked out, knowing that the nest time he'd see that little girl, she'd be drawn in by the Matriarch's motherly love and would become part of the Gashadokuro Yakuza family.
To say Kengo Tanaka was dead on would be understatement.
No one except Takeshi Sato and his wife Maria knew what happened in his office the day Anu Naito was adopted into the Gashadokuro/Sato family, but no one dared to object to the Patriarch's final words and worked on fully integrating the young girl into the family and its business. Be that as it may, however, that is not to say it was an easy task. Introverted and continuously showing a lack of emotions, she proved to be a difficult person for everyone else in the clan to get along with. No one knew that the only person she showed her kindness to was the Matriarch, Maria, who reminded the girl of her mother and thus gained her favor due to her gentle and caring nature. The orange haired woman was equally becoming quite attached to the quiet and solitary girl, often bringing snacks and checking up on the now fourteen year old girl throughout the day. It had been four years since they allowed the child into the family and since then they began to “toughen her up”. Her aggressiveness at the orphanage had gained Kengo's interest and he offered himself to train her himself in self defense and make her strong enough to “repeat another Anna instance”. Maria had readily agreed, despite never again ringing up Anna, but it wasn't like the girl didn't know who she was. While Maria and Anu steadily grew a trusting bond, but that did not imply that the blossoming young girl told the woman everything.
A year after her fifteenth birthday and earning the Gashadokuro tattoo, the little Naito began noticing what seemed to be a strange bundle of lights that seemed to be following her around the estate and hanging around her during her times in the gym. With each passing day, the bundle would get closer to her and slowly start to take a shape, along with a voice that she's hear every now and then like a passing whisper. It was ten days of this before the lights revealed themselves to be a spirit. But, not just any spirit, but rather the spirit of Anna Sato, Maria and Takeshi's deceased child. She appeared before Anu in her room as the girl was leaving her training with Kengo when she came across the young spirit sitting upon her bed, almost like she was waiting for the girl to return. The sight of someone who should no longer be existing made the teenager pause in the doorway, staring at the figure in her bedroom with the color draining slightly from her face. The orange haired girl smiled at her as she noticed Anu's hesitation in the doorway. Anna promised that she meant no harm and wanted to simply talk about her mother. Unsure of exactly how to deal with the situation the teen slowly walked into the room and sat on a chair in her bedroom, seated far away from the girl relaxing on her bed with a mysterious chain in the middle of her chest, playing with and hugging her pillows. The two stared intently at each until Anna began to speak which, after some time, prompted Anu to start replying. They talked from dusk till dawn, with their subjects ranging from the Gashadokuro to Maria to Kengo to Rohana and so forth, giggles here and there. Anu found it bit odd that the girl never brought up Takeshi, but decided to not question it. Apparently, the original reason Anna began to haunt her was due to her jealousy with Anu and Maria's budding relationship, as she felt like her mother was replacing her. But, after watching the dark skinned teenager for some and feeling her inner sorrow, she began feeling pity for the young girl and instead changed her . Needless to say, the two girls created a bond that night, a bond of companionship. It was a relationship that made the biracial girl feel like what she had for the first time was something like a friend, and just in time. The next week after Anna and Anu started talking and releasing their frustrations to each other in secrecy, when Kengo announced to her that she would be starting “special training””. Confused by what he meant by special, she confronted Anna about what he could be talking about. The spirit girl perked up and excitedly began to tell the teen about Chi and about how she was learning to control it before the accident. Slightly intrigued by this newfound information, Anu listened to Anna intently as she explained what Chi was and its benefits and downsides. By the time it was time for Kengo to teach the girl about Chi, she wasn't completely clueless to it thanks to Anna's crash course.
Two years passed since Anu started training her Chi and passing with flying colors. The Patriarch and Matriarch was quite impressed and happy with her success, but Anu knew it was mostly thanks to Anna who had been her teacher and helping her better understand things where Kengo couldn't. Her genius-like skill also earned her the respect from the rest of the clan, who thought it would be best to through a party of sorts to celebrate Anu's graduation from her training with Kengo to a fully fledged member of the Gashadokuro. Unbeknownst to everyone but his most trusted confidants, Takeshi had also planned to announce that him and Maria were to be officially adopting Anu and that she would be the next head of the family once he and Maria passed their prime. As such, the party was supposed to be used to announce many things that would effect the future of the Gashadokuro Yakuza heavily. So needless to say that when Anu was invited to Takeshi's study to discuss something of importance, Anna tagged along out of curiosity. The entirety of her slow walk there, Anu felt immense unease as numerous what ifs passed through her head about what the man could want to talk to her about. Had they caught her sneaking out at night to search for clues about Rohana? Did he change his mind about allowing her position in the clan? It wasn't like the Patriarch was a bad man, but something about him just always put her off and she hated being around him. His eyes hid many secrets and tales of unspoken bloodshed. Anna tried her best to perk her friend up and brush off her worries, but to no avail. Once she arrived, however, was when the real Hell broke loose.
Takeshi sat at his desk, waiting for her and looking like he suddenly aged ten years, and had instructed Anu to take a seat. Kengo sat off to the side, taking long drags of his cigarette. Idly, she wondered if he was ever gonna get some kind of sickness because of how many of those cancer sticks he went through in a day. Takeshi cleared his throat to gather back her attention and slowly set about trying to explain to her that he and Maria, along with Kengo as his opinion was also highly valued, would be placing her as their heir and that this party would double as her initiation into the role. As he went on into details about how proud he was of accomplishments and so forth, Anu noticed that Anna had gotten quiet. It seemed that with every compliment Anna shrunk into herself more. Anu attempted to get the girl's attention when she heard a chair scrapping against the hardwood floorboards and saw Kengo had stood up suddenly, looking sharply at her, or rather, what was beside her. Confused, Takeshi questioned the man about the interruption when a suddenly burst of spiritual energy filled the room. It pushed Anu from her seat and into the wall while Kengo jumped over to protect the Patriarch from the brunt of the blast. Soon, a distorted wailing sound could be heard emerging from where Anna previously stood. It took a moment, but when Anu opened her eyes to the sight a monstrous looking being with tentacle-like hair flying about everywhere, she knew what had became of Anna at that very moment. She knew that this would happen eventually, her chain had slowly been getting low and Kengo had told her what happened to spirits who's chains broke. But the real question is what accelerated her transformation? She looked over to Kengo and Takeshi, with the latter looking not surprised at all and the former completely shocked. She quickly pushed herself to her feet and stood in front of the hollow that used to be Anna with her arms spread out in an attempt to block her from attacking Takeshi, who seemed to be her target. She tried to get her attention, but to avail as the hollow flung her large body about and trashed the office. The real problem, however, was that Kengo wasn't fighting the creature, despite Takeshi's orders for him to kill it. Then second-in-command just stood there, staring at the creature in shock.
His biggest mistake.
The hollow flung the sharp tentacle-like claw froward and slashed through Kengo while simultaneously picking up the Patriarch as he yelled curses at it, while also taking out his pistol and attempting to cause it harm by shooting it in its face. During his yelling the man must have said something that was never supposed to be spoken, as he shut up just as the words left his mouth. ”You were supposed to die and stay dead, damnit!”
This made Kengo cough out a bloody “what?” as he lay there, dying on the floor. Anu's eyes widened and then narrowed dangerously as she tried tending to Kengo's injuries. He seemed to remember that she was there as he called for her help. Briefly, she ignored him as she picked up the sound of the others finally rushing to see what the commotion was. She doubted if they could do anything but get themsleves killed by the beast, but then she remebered that Maria was home. The last thing she wanted was for Maria to be hurt. That meant she didnt have much time. Calmly, she asked him to explain what did he meant his words, or she would wait for him to be devoured before killing the beast. He seemed annoyed by her proposal but forced out the truth as the hollow took a bite of one of his arms. Quickly, and filled with the fear of dying, the man spilled his guts to the teenager. He spoke about his suspcions of Maria and Kengo's close realtionship, and about how Anna looked nothing like him. He spoke about how he knew the child wasnt his and called Maria a cheating whore who deserved to die with the girl. He told her how he had ordered the hit on the girl to make it look like an accident. Takeshi even told her that he had met her mother, about she had come to the estate looking for a loan for healthcare. He had denied her and told her to scram, even mentioning the irony in when he learned of Rohana's death six years prior to meeting her. All of his words did nothing but enraged her. She clenched Kengo's dead body close to her, his red blood soaking her pure white dress, sobbing slightly and ignoring Takeshi's pleas for help. Her teacher and the man who tried to save her from herself aly dead in a puddle of his own blood because of the man he trusted own selfish reasons. The young girl allowed hollow Anna to take a few more nibbles of the man efore standing up and walking over to them. Inside, she swirled with the many emotions that boiled her insides, but her face displayed nothing but frigidness and cold purple eyes. Her right hand began to glow and spark with colors of black, red and violet and aiming it right at Takeshi and the monster that used to be her friend, ignoring the slashes that attacked her. With slow and deliberate movements, Anu gathered her Dou Chi into the calm of her hand, imprinting the image Takeshi Sato's eys full of dread and horror into her mind as she murmured her relase for her uncontrollable blast, ignoring the sound of the door to the study opening. ”Yoh.”
The hollow's shrieks of pain and death would be heard echoing in her head for days, but none ever more than that moment. The blast had thrown her back into the wall and neraly destroyed half the house, and what looked to be...Maria Sato. Or, what was left of the italian woman. The sight of the tatters of cloth that used to be Maria's dress made Anu sick as she began to softly cry, ignoring the curses and yells of the Gashadokuro clan members asking about what happened. Ryu came rushing forward and shook Anu, demanding she tell him “what the hell happened!?”. Still sobbing, Anu knew that no matter what she told them, she couldnt stay there. She had killed the Patriarch and Matriarch, even if one was accidental, and Kengo had died so he couldnt defend her. All she could manage out was a “I killed them.” This stunned everyone in the room, causing them to take a pause to let the words sink in. Good. Anu took advantage of this to run and jump out of the window, ignoring Ryu's cry of surprise that was her name. She couldnt stay there, not after everything that happened. So she did the only thing that she could do. She ran.
It had been three years since what transpired at the Gashadokuro Estate. Three years since she'd run away and right into the Samaapt, where they accepted someone of her skills into their ranks. A group of assassins, ironically the same people who Takeshi had hired to assassinate Anna Tanaka. Apparently, when she ran into them, they were on their way to kill Takeshi Sato for skimping out on his payment but didn't need to anymore, thanks to Anu doing the job for them. They offered her a posistion within them when learning that a girl of her capabilities had no where else, offering her a new family while also allowing her the pursuit of searching for information on her mother. Although hesitate at first, it didn't take Anu long to embrace her role as an assassin. Thus, the Samaapt started a new life for, beginning with faking her death and having Anu Naito reborn as Black Cat.

A GIFTED ASSASSIN
- Name: Fūjin
- Type: Defensive/Offensive
- Information: The universal tool's appearance is that of a Tessen, a Japanese war fan. From first glance the Tessen looks completely harmless, looking like that of a normal folding fan. However, when opened, one could note the outer spikes taht seem to be made of heavy, thin plates of steel hidden between small flaps. The cloth hiding the blades and giving the weapon a sense of fashion is midnight black. On both sides of the fan is the outline of two dragons that seem to be floating on clouds and a Yin-Yang symbol on each side. The metal not covered by the cloth shows that the metal is a stainless, silvery chrome steel. On the handle, there is a bit of black, hardened rubber with a circling, golden dragon design. When not using the Tessen as a weapon of sorts, Anu can use it to block basic attacks, like thrown weapons or close ranged attacks due to its enforced insides. It is overall slightly bigger than Anu's hand by two or three inches.
- Name: Furaingurōdo
- Type: Offensive/Defensive
- Information: A set of six kunai made from black stainless steel that are about six and a half inches long. They aren't very heavy, but have enough weight to stand against a numerous amount of attacks. With the proper care, the set are not likely to break easily and can be used to the very extent of their abilities. Furaingurōdo are usually seen inside the small pouch on Anu’s right leg. However, what differentiates these kunai from normal kunai is that they are able to withstand the power of a chi user by allowing such power to flow through it with ease. With the power flowing through it, the Furaingurōdo are able to extend their length, similar to a sword, and become much sharper than before.
- Name: Aijin Mob
- Type: Offensive
- Information: An assortment of variously different shapes of shuriken that are also made of stainless black steel that look to be in the similar fashion of the kunai. Like Furaingurōdo, the Aijin Mob are able to withstand the power of a chi user to become stronger and sharper than what it was previously. However, instead of extending, they are able to fly swifter and cleaner through the air, looking similar to a blur soaring through the air towards an opponent. The Aijin Mob too are located inside the pouch.
- Aijin Mob:
» Natural Attributes: » Assassin Weaponry Mastery:
One of the perks that came with the job of an Assassin was none other than one's mastery over the tools of their trade. In Anu's case, this was quite a special skill the girl gained throughout her time with the Agency. Whether the weapon ranged from something like a bladed fan all the way to a simple throwing star, throughout her entire arsenal there wasn't a single weapon the girl didn't feel at ease holding in her light but deadly fingers. There are even weapons that, in today's world, would be considered obsolete that the girl has mastered despite not carrying on her being at all times. A couple of these weapons would be the Manriki-Gusari and the Kusarigama. Though completely useless in this day and age, there wasn't a single weapon or practice the girl ignored during her self-taught and enforced training. Being one of the few assassins still left roaming the world it wasn't a big surprise that the girl tried her best to retain knowledge on past techniques and weaponry. » Advanced Aptitude for Chi:
As someone who has worked and pushed herself to her limits on numerous occasions, Anu is someone who has nigh perfect control over her Chi, being able to manipulate, bend, and manifest its very being to not only affect herself, but areas and objects around her. With near expert precision over each and every execution of her Chi performance, the girl has no problem opening, closing and operating her Qiqongs in even the most complex ways due to her training and individual practice and consistent usage over time. » Agility:
With the natural and trained grace of a gymnast, Anu is able to move her body quickly with the easy use of her limbs as she forces the vessel to move at certain speeds at her commands that her body is capable of achieving, much more fluidly than a regular.. Well, maybe even more so than a human, as the movements themselves are very similar to that of a cat’s, her actions being very flexible and catlike in almost every sense. Her nimbleness is of great use for her, enabling her to change her body's position in the blink of an eye, combining the fast thinking of her mind with the relexes of her body's balance, speed and cordination. » Martial Arts:
Anu uses karate as a form of her go-to self defense tactic, utilizing it's grappling and joint lock techniques. With these, she is able to push any opponent back and distance herself in order to gain the upper hand, usually in attempts to subdue a target. The karate isn’t usually performed on its own, however. It is typically combined with varma kalai or hapido, depending on the situation. The latter for when she is actually giving a bit of fight back with her opponent, either for her own bemusement, and the former when she is especially aiming to end the encounter quickly.
»Varma Kalai / Marma Adi: Sher Dil (शेर दिल Lion Heart):
A style and skill she learned from an older man during her days with the Gashadokuro family. Varma Kalai itself is technically just a form of alternative medicine of which the practitioner presses the pressure points on another body to either help heal them and relax their body, or cause them harm. Anu is able to perform both of these techniques, with the healing factor on a lesser note. However, what is really phenomenal is that the young woman has been used the knowledge of these pressure points and it’s combat component and used it to craft her own distinctive fighting style. She slightly lowers her body closer to the ground, getting in tune with her center core as she analyzes her opponent and searches for their available points. Once she has a lock on them, however, she moves her body similar to that of a stealthy and slick cat, twisting it this and that way to reach that one spot she was aiming for. When a point is actually hit, there are a few things that could happen depending on what PP (pressure point) was hit. On some it might cause discomfort in their nervous system, others inducing an upset stomach with the urge to vomit, and some might simply just cause a headache.
A skill she actually taught herself by spying on practitioners and adding her own twists to make it her own. She uses Hapkido in a similar fashion as Karate, utilizing it for defensive gains, but that’s where the similarities stop. Hapkido is set form of physical offensiveness Anu uses. Using her strong legs, she weaponizes the kicks to be fatal, mixing in marmi adi as she aims for opponent’s weak spots like the back of their knees, elbows, etc. Utilizing her arm and general body strength, she uses an attacker’s body weight against them when they attempt to land physical attacks against her, striking against those same weak spots when they were vulnerable once again. » Enhanced Endurance:
With advance training and years worth of endurance training Anu is able to sustain herself longer than a regular human and then some. Her body’s muscle is capable of handling and taking certain attacks with ease for a given amount of time. It also allows the woman to last a longer while in a combat situation, running and jumping around being easily sustained with the extra stamina, along with being able to endure pain with not much of a fuss. No matter how emotionless Anu is, she always plans to last to the very end of the fight, regardless of the fatigue, stress or anything else thrown at her to attempt to slow her down. » Unnaturally High Resistance to Cold Temperatures:
Possibly due to her constant exposure to violent temperatures while dealing with manipulating the wind, Anu has developed a freakish amount of resistance against low temperatures, barely feeling the bite of a winter breath. This sets the girl to be being able to walk around and handle situations such as a fight with ease, even in temperatures where the normal normal humans begin to stagger. However, while the temperatures do not affect her, things such as ice and heavy snow would, as they weigh down her and slow her body slightly. » Passive Chi Abilities: » Analytic Eyes:
The reason that Anu’s eyes seem so overbearingly bright is due to the Chi energy that is constantly pulsing through the trochlea tendon to her eyes. The Chi itself acts as slowing effect on the eyes, slowing people in the woman’s sights, allowing her to analyze their next opening with ease. This gives the girl an inhuman amount of concentration on specific people/objects, finding the details no normal person would be able to spot. However, with the addition of her knowledge on a human’s pressure points, the eyes give her a full script of the location of these vital points. Clothing or armor is of no hindrance, as she sees their spiritual energy instead of their normal humanly body outline. The downfall of this being used in battle to predict movement is the fact that Anu has to be faster than the person she is attempting to scan.» Chi Concealment:
As the ability states rather clearly in its name, Chi Concealment is simple and straight to the point. Like most Chi Humans, Anu is able to focus and adjust the levels of Chi within her body into specific points and areas along her being. In the case of Chi Concealment, Anu flows a majority of her Chi into a compact, sphere shaped path located directly around the girl's heart. By doing so, Anu is able to quickly mask her presence around a large amount of spiritual beings ranging in quite different power levels (level is dependent on tier and staff approval) while also being able to 'buff'
herself as a spiritual being. Encircling her heart in such a mass amount of Chi is dangerous, however it comes with quite the catch. The Chi concentrated around her heart allows Anu a single enhanced movement, attack or general spiritual power from the moment that Concealment is canceled, allowing her to fulfill her Assassin nature in full. The ability itself can only be activated a single time, once the power is deactivated Anu has two rounds of posting after the deactivation post to use her enhanced effect otherwise she'll lose it entirely.
» Sei Abilities:» Xinfeng:
Once a person has had their Chi nodes opened, they must learn to keep their Chi from leaking away from their body. Xinfeng is the process of keeping the nodes open, but also having Chi flow through and around the body rather than away from it. Once maintained, it creates a shroud around the user that feels similar to standing in lukewarm, viscous fluid. Ten maintains youthful vigor and reduces one's aging; since the energy powering the body no longer leaks away, one can keep the body from breaking down and deter the aging process. A practical application of this manifest as the effective comparable for Chi humans to an Arrancar’s Hierro. A shroud of Chi surrounds the body in a thin layer that dramatically bolsters the defensive capabilities of the Human being, allowing him to not only stand up to the wide array of supernatural creatures the world boasts, but also to occasionally power through them without so much as a scratch.» Chengtan:
Chengtan is an advanced application of Xinfeng. Chengtan allows a user of Chi to extend their energy's envelopment onto an object, allowing them to use that object as if it were an extension of their own body. For example, one could use Chengtan to extend their Xinfeng around an object, which would strengthen and protect the object like the way it envelops and protects the body. Unlike Xinfeng however, Chengtan does not need constant energy flows to maintain. With Chengtan, a Chi Human can infuse part of their essence into an object and grant it abnormal and ridiculous power. Many legendary artifacts in the human world are the result of potent Chi Humans bequeathing their power onto an object. » Jiaodian:
By channeling the user’s Chi to their eyes, the practitioner is afforded a substantially larger amount of information from optical intake. While by having opened the Qiqong, the Chi Human is naturally sensitive to numerous types of energy and can follow them well enough, whenever the Chi Human is utilizing the Jiaodian, they are able to see things in much more depth, akin to the difference between a color television and a black and white version. Chi Humans who are especially adept at Jiaodian are far more equipped to react to minute movements of an opponent, making them seem to have substantially higher reaction times, when in reality they are simply given much more information to work with.» Quan:
Quan is an advanced application of Xinfeng. Instead of projecting the Chi around the body, Quan projects the Chi out over a wide area. Any object that enters this area around the user immediately triggers a signal in the Chi humans brain, letting him sense and pinpoint what transgressed upon his area of control. The accuracy and area that the Chi human can project their quan is relative to their tier and proficiency with Sei Chi. » Yuhe:
Using Chi in order to get their bodies to the best shape as possible, using the chi flowing in their own bodies they are able to regenerate faster than the normal human beings this doesn't mean their bodies heal instantly, it's almost like the Shinigami, there bodies can heal faster than normal humans can. Chi humans who are especially adept in Sei can recover debilitating flesh wounds in a matter of minutes and it is rumored that Grandmasters can even regenerate limbs. » Māo TĪnglì:
By channeling Chi directly to her ears, Anu is able to sufficiently enhance the amount information picked up by their auditory perception intake. While having Qiqong, and Jiaodian activated together, she is highly sensitive to all forms of activity and can track objects, animals and people on the same level, and higher, than that of a specialized animal and/or regular human. Whenever the Chi human is utilizing the enhanced hearing, her eyes see in ultraviolet lighting, every inch being in almost uncomfortable depth.» Dou Abilities: »Tilan:
Tilan is the opposite of Xinfeng. Instead of taking the Chi and forming it around your body, Tilan generates that chi and propels it outward. it's also possible for them to produce more energy around themselves without having to worry about losing it. Tilan focuses on outputting a high amount of Chi and keeping it on the body, expanding the size and intensity of it. If Xinfeng is considered to be purely defensive, then Tilan typically is used for offense. This is equivalent to the spiritual pressure that many other species are capable of. The Tilan from a Chi human is relative to both his tier and the extent of his skill in Dou, but those who are powerful in both can release pressure that can prevent others from being able to breathe, much less move, simply by being in the Chi Humans presence. »Yoh:
Yoh is a weaponized mass of Chi energy that is most equatable to offensive Shinigami spells or a Hollow’s cero. The size, color and potency varies from user to user, the last category typically being dependent on tier and proficiency with the Dou alignment. While there are not distinguishing names between the different kind of attacks like there are with the Hollow variants, the strength and power behind the different types of energy attacks can vary as wildly as the gap between a Bala and a Gran Rey Cero and the different levels achieved vary wildly on the attunement to the user’s Dou Chi. »Anu’s Yoh:
Similar to that of a Hollow’s cero, it comes protruding wildly from the young girl like that of a burst of energy with minimal charge time, usually gathered and released from the palm of her tiny hand. The coloration is that of Vantablack
with licks of [color=#C71585]Red-Violet[color] circling the edges of it. The sizing is that of four times her own body’s length, representing all the Dou energy inside the girl that goes untouched and uncontrolled. »Piqi:
Piqi is a dangerous but rewarding technique that effectively closes the valve, similarly to Yizhi, on every Qiqong point but the one being used in the technique, effectively building up pressure in the body and expunging all of the chi through that one Qiqong. This makes that one body part exceptionally powerful and can increase the raw potency of any attack using that body part. Using Piqi can dramatically increase the potency of a physical attack, a Yoh energy attack or even the unique abilities, or Shiyong, that manifest with each Chi practitioner. The downside however is, like Yizhi, shutting off the bodies energy to everything but one point makes you very susceptible to counter attacks and as such, Piqi is useful exclusively as a finishing move or a guaranteed strike, otherwise it carries massive risks.» Zhuăzi:
Zhuăzi is a simple but lethal weaponized Dou technique that closes the Qiqong points on the girl’s arms, instead focusing the unused energy into the user’s hands. Anu forces this energy into and around her fingers, forcing a large but controllable mass that she uses to bend and form into a shape similar to a feline’s claws as her fingers, with her hand as the acting paw. These hands now turned into cat paws that are adjustable in size, ranging from the normal size of her hand to nearly twice the size of her head, as sharp as talons in every form. With the sizing and shape complete, the claws can also be used to extend from the girl’s hand, similar to a projectile that is still connected to the item used to blast. » Seidou Abilities: » Vayu:
By utilizing and manipulating the current of air that flows around her with excess chi of Sei and Dou becoming a perfect mix in harmony, Anu is able to exploit and control of the wind flow velocity. Her manipulation of the wind is left entirely up to her imagination, such as making multiple mini tornadoes spread out in a three mile radius, causing minor to severe cuts in its wake. The tornadoes themselves don't cause much damage other than being capable of lifting a person off the ground, rather, the effect they have on surrounding areas do this instead, such as the debris and flying shrapnel. Along with creating gusts, blades, and whirlwinds, Anu is capable of manipulating the wind current around her body with chi to achieve levitation and flight. It is able to be used as a shield of sorts around her body while doing this, blowing away projectiles and blasting opponents at point blank range when there is an attempted breach in the pseudo armor. The stronger Anu is, the bigger and more disastrous her control over the wind flow velocity is. » Cynic Strings:
Cynic Strings are puppet like strings which are generated from Anu's body. These strings are empowered by the vile personality which was forged within her youth. As this ability empowered by the nihilistic, sardonic and outright misanthrope outlook that Anu has based on the events of seeing her mother die, the betrayal of her past and the bloody life she lives as an assassin. Therefore, the power that Cynic String possesses is one that is able to break down the compounds of piece of material or person that it comes into contact with until they are as empty as herself.
An example of this being used in combat would be that if Anu attached these strings to a piece of wood created by another character, she has the potential to decay and rot it by placing a single Cynic String on it and mentally activating this ability to take place as she infuses her own inner values into the world around her. Now, when it comes to objects with denser or high volume of energy content, this will usually require her to produce more strings. Since, if she is fighting against a character that can create potent magic attacks or produce high tier attacks, she will often need upwards of dozens of Cynic Strings in order to start lowering the stats of their attack and that will take more stamina, energy and focus away from her that can tire her out throughout the course of a battle.
When it comes to living beings it turns more into a power drain type of ability. As, to start things off, she needs to be able to directly approach an opponent, connect her string and leave it attached for a post. Once this protocol is finished, she can activate Cynic String on an organic being and begin to empty out their energy from their body. The rate at which this is at will be dependent upon a variety of factors: durability, tier difference, exhaustion and the rate in which she can keep the string on the opponent. The longer she is able to keep the string on the opponent, the more potent it will eventually come.
4 Tier: Anu is capable of draining 5% of a character overall physical and spiritual energy.
3 tier: At 3 tier tier, this doubles and Anu can drain upwards of 10% of a person's spiritual and physical energy with her Cynic Strings
2 Tier: Once again, at 2 tier, this rate at which she can drain someone doubles to 20% MAX (so that means it may average 15%, or go lower than that depending on different factors in battle) and they can lose fair chunks of energy if they allow themselves to be hit.
1 Tier: At one tier this ability tops off and she is able to drain a person of 25% of their spiritual/physical energy per post at max. And, again, this is in an ideal setting. As it should be noted that those who are exhausted, worn down or have lowered durability will be more prone to having these huge chunks of energy taken.
With that said, given how potent this power is, there will be a five post cool down after it's been used on an organic being. As it will not work on that same person again until the cool down has gone through. However, if she is fighting against numerous opponents, this ability can be switched up to hit other characters. So, if she hit character A with this ability, she could still potentially use her Cynic String to influence Character B.
Another limitation to note is that each string produced by her will, of course, take energy and focus away from Anu. So if she abuses the ability too rapidly, it will dull her of reserves and she will need to assess when the right time is to use this ability and when it isn't.
These strings also have a limitation to how far they can reach that is varied on what tier level she happens to find herself at:
4 Tier: 100 meters
3 Tier: 200 meters
2 Tier: 400 Meters
1 Tier: 800 Meters
0 Tier: 1,600 meters
Additionally, while Anu can produce dozens of strings at a time, they are only allowed to be focused on four different objects or people because the potency drops when he focus is shifted. This is because the less thought that she imprints into a string, the less effective it will be against an opponent or attack. So it makes sense that the potency would lower as her focus is divided against different things.

Mors Amplexus (死の抱擁 Shi no hōyō): Ōdokuro
» Awakened Appearance:
Taking a moment to stop all forms of movement with her body, Anu concentrates deeply within herself, searching her soul for something that lied mostly dormant inside of her. Not too long during that search, the woman feels something tugging at her body, particularly her spinal cord. Spiritually, it appears to the assassin, a soul representation of her spirit, a large, dreadful skeleton, moaning in despair, looking strangely similar to a Gashadokuro from Japanese lore. Reaching out a hand, Anu gives it a silent invitation as they bond and fuse, allowing her chi, body and spirit to intertwine with the portrayal of everything she was, allowing it to break free. Once this is done, Anu's body begins to glow a strange Dark Purple as bone cracking and splitting could be heard to those nearby as large amounts of Dou chi burst from the small body. However, once the chi clears, the young girl is spotted with a new mien. Her once overbearing purple eyes now a listless Dark Red and her hair had gotten longer and greyish white, the tendrils now reaching the woman's chest. Other, more noticeable changes were the sudden overwhelming greyness of her skin and the two somewhat thin tiefling-like horns jutting out either side of her head. However, the real change was the incredibly(?) large upper half of a skeletal being that seemed to be jutting out of the base of the girl's spinal cord that connected the two, but seemed to be made completely of chi energy, despite looking quite realistic. It was nearly three times Anu's size, with limbs that reached out about just as wide. The being’s rib cage surrounded the girl in something of a shield, chi filling the gaps in a form to complete the shield and protect from attacks. It rattled and gave grim moans with each movement. With the transformation complete, Anu felt connected with every fiber of her being, a feeling she basks in with each breath she took.
» Awakened Powers:
Draining Rib Shield:
With Chi pulsing heavily through the Ōdokuro being on her back, it practically oozes it from every inch of its form. In order to protect its vessel of sorts. It reinforces the thick rib cage, connecting the open spaces with a thickened zigzag like threading, which seem to resemble Anu’s cynic strings. The guard itself is capable of defending easily against pure physical attacks and handle itself fairly well when it comes to spiritual attacks, even going as far as sapping 5% of their physical and spiritual energy when they do manage to land an attack. The protector would, however, struggle against light and solar energy, its force having wavering reactions against different strengths of the opposing force.
Either due to the aspect of the Ōdokuro itself, or the power it exalted, it didn’t matter how or why but the being released an aura that screamed killer intent that seemed capable of putting some of the most hard steeled people on edge. The aura itself seemed to leak all around the immediate area, just barely reaching three miles out from its originator. The feeling could be described as sitting in cold water for hours and allowing the cold itself to sink into their bones. Or being in an extremely hotter than normal steam room that causes a scar that resembles an invisible water burn on their skin that’s spreading uncontrollably, sinking deep into their bones like the first feeling and causing a rattling like feeling. In short, it is comparable to a plague that makes your bones shiver, a sound ringing in their ears that sound suspiciously like “gachi gachi”.
Anu raises her arm into the air suddenly, which in tune raises an arm from the Ōdokuro in unison, a booming thundering can be heard in the distance as she slams her hand down and the skeletal arm is thrown into the ground, pouring the Chi into the ground with it. By focusing her Chi into ground the girl is able to make “extensions” of the skeleton arm from the ground up to her opponents. It would pop out from the ground, from the elbow-up, and would either straight up strike the closest enemy near it or attempt to grab their leg and drag them underground. The latter process is what the Anu calls a burial, presumably to add to her power with another deceased body reeling with strong emotions.
As an extension of “Extension”, as an alternative to just striking them or leaving to die underground, the being instead drags them towards itself and Anu. With Anu’s signal, the Ōdokuro will “swallow” the person, where they will fall through the being’s hollow frame momentarily, plummeting towards Anu until they are caught by a ball of Chi energy. The energy itself engulfs them, binding their frame in tightly as the Chi begins to sap at 10% of their spiritual energy to fuel Anu’s own power, of which she uses to redirect the stolen energy and blast it to any other enemies. During the time of imprisonment, the person inside begins to feel like their core being is being broken and stripped down as their energy is stolen. If not taken from Anu during the time her Mors Amplexus is activated, the captured has a lasting scar on them spiritually, similar to a third degree burn from where there energy was forcibly taken away.

» Perfectly Awakened Powers: (Describe what powers your human gets in this state)
- Name: Fōsu [Force]
- Type: Defensive
- Equipment Used: Fujin
- Information: Using Fūjin, Anu manipulates nearby wind to create a single, or several depending on how much Chi energy is used, that can throw back an opponent from getting too close. The wind isn't violent, thus not causing any harm, but instead even and controlled enough to just push someone back . However, if she focused the energy enough, she could push them back fast enough to cause whiplash. The wind may not intentionally hurt the opponent, but it could cause damage to the abdomen and damage any nearby external landscapes. This technique doesn't require much Chi energy and could be performed 1-5 posts before becoming fatigued.
- Name: Bōryoku [Violence]
- Type: Offensive
- Equipment Used: Fujin
- Information: This technique creates a small vortex of wind to blast at a target. The vortex itself is unstable and will burst forth wind at an opponent when the attack hits. The vortex is blade-like and delivers several medium sized slices while also blowing them away 1/2 mile. Because the vortex is fairly thick and doesn't extend, instead traveling, it is easily avoidable if timed correctly. However, for Anu to achieve the full strength of the attack, she must be completely focused for 2 posts on gathering enough wind. If she doesn't do this, the attack will only cause minimum damage such as small cuts, won't burst at the correct timing, or just not reach its target completely.
- Name: Tornado Aditya
- Type: Offensive/AoE
- Equipment Used: N/A
- Information: Anu starts to give a dramatic thundering clap, with her arms outstretched from her body, the young woman is violently forcing her chi in and around the immediate area, with her as the center. By clapping she is is gathering up any and all available breezes and turning them into a cluster enhanced with chi. The wisps of wind are then turned violent as it begins to whip around the surrounding area, capable of whipping trees and creating gales strong enough to knock someone back off of their feet. Once the vortex reached maximum violence in its rotating winds, it is capable of knocking over trees and destroying some buildings. Affects a One mile radius.
- Name: Barrage
- Type: Offensive/Counter
- Equipment Used: Fujin
- Information: By waving Fujin in a fast motion multiple times toward her opponent, Anu is able to pick up any nearby currents of air and turning them into sharpen gusts of wind. She hurls these flurries of her enemy, in attempts to either knock them down or to shred any bits of skin available.
- Name: Mob Attack
- Type: Offensive/Defensive
- Equipment Used: Aijin / Furaingurōdo
- Information: Anu begins her assault by first jumping into the air and flinging three members of the Aijin Mob at her target, aiming to cause a small distraction rather than dealing damage. After the first part has been achieved, the woman begins part two by enhancing all six of the Furaingurōdo and sending them flying in a circular shape towards her opponent, with herself appearing in the middle of the circle with four of the shuriken on her hand like brass knuckles, driving a hard punch to the other’s face with the spiked fist and a precise kick to the gut.
- Name: Dread Net
- Type: Defensive/Offensive/Special
- Equipment Used: N/A
- Information: Creating and ejecting fifteen cynic strings from her body, Anu intertwines the strings to create a net capable of trapping at least three people. She activates it by hurling it at her preferred targets. Just by trapping these people, the girl is able to then start draining their spiritual and physical energy, making them too tired and weak to fight back against their trap. The more they fight back, the more Anu drains from them, similar to a quicksand effect.
- Name: Hurricane Pavana
- Type: Special/AOE
- Equipment Used: Fujin
- Information: Anu gathers together any nearby clouds to form them into one cluster, waving the fan and her body in a circular motion. As the clouds begin to gather and form, she uses the wind around it to grip at the clouds, in an attempt that looks similar to wringing a rag, and swirl them around in a circular motion along with the violent winds. Everything begins to soon mix together in a near perfect harmony as the simple clouds turn into rain clouds from the disturbance. With the wind flow velocity becoming extremely violent and near unstable, Anu stops rotating her body and instead uses Fujin to blow and cast out miniature tornadoes and whirlwinds into the area, allowing them to be controlled and blown anywhere the hurricane sends them, adding to its destructive power. Affects a 5 mile radius.

[adm]Only two issues here.
- Quote :
- Vayu: " Her manipulation of the wind is left entirely up to her imagination, such as making multiple mini tornadoes spread out in a ten mile radius, causing minor to severe cuts in its wake"
Change that to a 3-mile radius.
- Quote :
- Tornado Aditya: Affects a 3 mile radius.
Lower to a 1-mile radius[/adm]
