I. Personality» Personality:
Rei is a colorful individual, who enjoys playful games and anything fun. Despite being on her own, she attempts to engage in daily life from a fun perspective, enjoying even the smallest of little pleasures. Things from eating delicious snacks, hanging out with friends during lunch and after school, fun classes, days with no homework, and the like are among what she never takes for granted too often. Sunny days, cloudless nights, all woven together by a cool and refreshing breeze are her preferences, as opposed to the gloominess of other periods of bad weather.
This young girl is very bubbly, and generally polite to those around her. She gives off a sweet and childish demeanor, and attempts to be respectful and formal when she can, if she is treated well. She strongly sticks to the saying “treat others the way you wish to be treated”. Unfortunately, this brings out a weakness in Rei; her sensitivity. Should she take something the wrong way, she usually resorts to passive aggression or isolating herself.
Passive aggression first brings out the desire to manipulate, all mentally, emotionally, and socially. Socially, it is not hard to destroy someone by planting seeds of disgust and doubt in the minds of others. Many times, the target might not even realize this strategy of aggression, until the seeds have begun to sprout, and the rumors that are spread reach their ears. Generally, this method is safer when it comes to ‘getting even’ rather than outright aggression, as a good chunk of the time, the culprit who started it cannot be traced.
The more common option in passive aggression is emotionally manipulating an individual, which becomes a terrible habit of Rei, who resorts to it by nature. This often includes guilt-tripping, and oftentimes, the manipulation is not even intentional, nor is the one doing it conscious of their actions. With her sensitivity, this young girl finds it easy to break first, emotionally, and as a result, resort to crying and protesting, along with justifications, if needed. Taking advantage of the emotions of others, and their feelings of pity or guilt, she puts this use of manipulation to the test. A good amount of the time, she finds it successful, which encourages her to continue.
Mental manipulation simply implies the ability to persuade the actions and thought process of someone via clever words. These can include skillfully using compliments and uplifting words to give someone a better mental image of someone. Another technique is making promises and presenting temptations and prizes in order to weigh in on somebody’s mind. The opposite of this would be throwing negative and demeaning jabs, in order to slowly and surely crush someone, usually another sensitive person, like her.
To swing things to another brighter note, a true interest of this student includes reading, and seeing into the world beyond Karakura Town via her books, usually well illustrated. A picture can be worth a thousand words, or a thousand well-written words can paint the same picture in Rei’s mind. A favorite pastime included retreating into her books when she had nothing better to do. As a result, despite being so young, she gained a good amount of general knowledge, and enjoyed learning about new things that piqued her interest. Oftentimes, the teaching in school could be boring, though Rei would never miss an opportunity to show off the knowledge she had learned on her own. If possible, she would engage in debates, and grew to love deep discussions, and even playing the devil’s advocate when possible.
Along with this knowledge comes at least a bit of an ego, which unfortunately supports another weakness. Rei often falls into recalcitrant behavior when it comes to those who have not earned her personal respect. By default, she attempts to be polite and respectful towards adults and those more popular than she.. However, should one press her buttons, belittle her, or directly offend her, she grows a rather broad shield of stubbornness, becoming increasingly obstinate when around them. When this happens, she relies on being able to fight back, and manipulate, usually via guilt-tripping.
All in all, Rei is an overwhelmingly optimistic person by nature. In most instances where she is happy and has no reason to defend herself, she is extremely perky and only has polite words to shower her friends with. She remains a bold and brave individual, while never too blunt, hoping to spare a friend’s feelings. Rei is spontaneous and adores problem solving and creative intelligence. She is an intuitive thinker, and usually prefers abstract thoughts over one’s typical down to earth realities.
Anything that gives her attention motivates Rei, as well as random small things that make her happy. Be it her favorite food, or the promise of a fun activity, she can be easily persuaded in the end, depending on the circumstance. However, some of the fears that weight on the young girl’s mind are rather generic. Despite her bold and optimistic personality, Rei fears both pain and agony, and most notably and obvious, fears death. Fortunately in the privileged society in which she lives, her fears are rarely considered on a day to day basis. If anything, math test anxiety takes precedence.
Overall, Rei your typical bubbly and perky young teenager. She is sensitive to a fault, almost, though somewhat makes up for it with her wily and sagacious mind and wit. Like any individual, she suffers her own fears and weaknesses, though puts forward her best effort to overcome them with her strengths and optimism.
I. History» History:
Rei Gunn was born in South Korea to a humble family. Her father was a native Korean of prestigious lineage, while her mother was a Japanese citizen who worked in the city of Seoul. Her parents met each other at work and started a relationship and life from there. A few years passed for young Rei, who grew up in the Korean education system and was taught the native languages of both of her parents, as well as English.
During grade school, however, the relationship between her parents drifted apart and things changed for the worse. Eventually the two filed for a divorce, and with nowhere else to go, Rei’s mother moved back to Japan. During the divorce, Rei began to see odd entities manifest in the world around her. When she was at her lowest, odd ghostly beings would visit her. Such were terrifying experiences, but few and far between, fortunately.
The now tiny family settled in Karakura Town and began their life anew. On some occasions when she was older, Rei would be permitted to visit her father in Korea, typically for holidays, or her father would visit her in Japan.
As time went on and Rei hit middle school, her mother had fallen in love with another man. The boyfriend of her mother was kind to both her mother and Rei. Eventually, Rei’s mother and the man married, making him Rei’s stepfather. The two had a good relationship and he filled the role of father for the basically fatherless Rei. Altogether, Rei’s family life was happy and stable. The wounds from the divorce of her parents were starting to heal, and she had high school to look forward to. The visitations from ghosts had also decreased dramatically for the most part. She found a love for documentaries and science, specifically biology, and hoped to study to become a marine biologist or researcher upon graduation.
Upon entering high school, Rei was quick to make friends. She had almost forgotten about the ghosts she could once see, until more of them popped up in high school. This time, she had close friends to confide in about them. Was she delusional and hallucinating, or was the world actually haunted by such creatures? She quickly learned that she was not alone and a few people shared the ability to see the ghosts. During the spring semester of her first year in high school, Rei founded the Obakeyashi Ghost Hunting Club to rally other students to fight off any terrifying ghosts. After hours upon hours of research, she put together a good collection of salt, wooden crosses, a stainless steel butter knife-- as that was the closest she could get to a real silver dagger--, holy talismans, and other demon-warding trinkets and tools.
With her loving friends and brave ghost hunting club, Rei desires to make the most out of her high school years until she can fulfill her dream of becoming a biologist.
