_____________________________» Personality: Upbeat
Minami in general is a very positive person. On many occasions she can be found with the same energetic smile on her face. At other times she will have a neutral look on her face. This doesn't mean she is upset. Maybe she is focusing or something similar. Almost never will you see her sad, depressed, or angry. This isn't to say it can't happen, it is just almost impossible to get her down. She also doesn't hide things, you will generally get her natural response. As such, she may on occasion get irritated.Sociable
Minami can be a very sociable person. Though she tends to only hang around with a few different people, she is friendly to just about anyone she meets. It is easy to become an acquaintance she talks to from time to time. However, becoming an actual friend would take work before she would consider you one. However, she is very close to anyone she considers a friend.Loyal
Minami is very loyal to anyone she considers a friend. She never does anything to hurt them or betray them. In fact, she would fight to the last trying to help one if they needed it bad enough. Even when powerless, she will still try to protect someone from threats much more powerful than herself, if she cares enough for the person.Intelligent
Minami is actually a very intelligent girl. She can read and write fluently, and gets near perfect grades in any class she is in, even though she never studies. Even so, from the way she speaks and acts in her free time you would never guess. Though she may at times seem oblivious to something, she usually understands it fully. On top of this, she understands fighting and death logically. A fight is a fight, and death is part of life, it is sometimes necessary. This logical outlook is why she isn't affected by death as much, as long as it isn't one of her friends.Likes:
Friends, food, and she has an odd affinity for fighting from time to time.Dislikes:
Death, jerks, narcissism, sadness, those who underestimate her potential
Minami was born in Karakura city on May 12th, 2396. She was raised in an average sized home with her two parents and her little sister. Her parents were seemingly normal people, who couldn't even sense spirits, at least that is what they told people. In truth, Minami's mom was a Shinigami, though she cloaked all of her energy and posed as a powerless human. Her dad was a product of Soul Evolution, but he too kept his powers hidden.
As such most of Minami's life was that with little to do with spirits, comparatively speaking. She could never see them herself. It was strange living in a world where that of the spiritual nature was a common sight, yet she never had any way to see it. However, she got by rather well due to the large number of humans in the area. During her younger years, she spent much time running around, playing as if she had special powers. Even though she had none herself, she found it fun to pretend. She had a few close friends in her early school-life, and she got along pretty well. Still, she felt out of place in a way.
As she grew up more and more people around her unlocked their hidden powers. Before less than 50% of the people she knew had them, but now well over 75% did. Whether it was high or not for the area she did not know. She never let it get her down, and she was so friendly most people didn't look at her as odd. Still, she was only able to make a few close friends, whom she held onto dearly. A lot of others, though they treated her well, still looked down on her or thought she was strange. There was a slight loneliness due to this, but she never let it get to her.
Eventually, though, she had to move somewhere else in the city. Though it wasn't like she couldn't interact with her old friends, but they still grew distant and they kinda vanished from her life. She never allowed it to get her down though, she was cheerful and had her brains as back up. So even in the different situation who knows.
Today, she is still completely powerless. Yet with two parents whom have powers themselves, who knows what the future holds. Will she remain powerless forever? Will she unlock powers like her mother or father? Or will she gain something completely different. Only time will tell.
