|Subject Post 1Subject: Keianna Tanaka [APPROVED 3-5] Fri Sep 21, 2012 8:15 pm|| |
» Name: Keianna Tanaka
» Titles: None
» Age: 17
» Gender: Female
» Affiliation/Rank: Karakura High
» Appearance Picture:
Calm: Keianna is a very calm person. Although it can happen, she rarely gets into arguments, she doesn't yell, nor does she get excited or anxious. She has a very strong sense of control within herself that allows her to keep herself in a tranquil state of mind. She could be in the middle of a battle and she won't feel the pressure against a strong opponent. An earthquake could hit and she'll calmly walk towards the area in which she'd be safe. If she was about to get hit by a car, she look towards the car and await impact without even flinching. This trait of hers compliments the manner in which she moves. She isn't just calm in the way she acts, but it the way she holds herself. She is never stiff. When she gets angry, her level of 'calm' is overwhelming. Someone could be yelling at her and she wouldn't budge. She'd rather stare them down, blink a few times, and walk away before actually moving into a screaming battle.
Responsible: Keianna is the type of person that will get a project done early just so she has time to make sure her findings are correct. She'll run home if she's a bit late, just to get her chores done on time. If her Mother needs her help, she jumps at the opportunity to do so. She isn't just responsible when it comes to getting something done, but if something bad happens, she won't hesitate to take the blame for someone else. She'd even take the punishment if it was able to help another person out. Now, if that person doesn't say thank you, or at least acknowledge what she has done for them, next time they are on their own.
Respectful: Keianna's sense of respect is something that comes from way in the past. If someone elderly walks by, she has a habit of stepping off to the side and bowing her head until the person passes. She has a habit of saying 'sir' or 'madam' to those she speaks to, especially if they are older. Someone of her own age or even younger, she'll call Miss or Mister. A lot of people might find it odd, but she gives people her respect until they do something to not deserve it. She knows where her place is and isn't one of those that tries to go above it.
Honorable: This is a trait that sometimes can get her into trouble. This sense of honor is also something that comes from the past. She'll drop what she's doing to make sure she gets an older person across the street. If she sees someone being hurt or picked on, she will not stand by and allow it to happen. She will interfere and a lot of the time, she will come out victorious. It's like she lives by an old code. Older people like it, adults find it interesting, while the people who're who own age think she's weird.
Courageous: Keianna is a fun person to be with because she likes trying out new things. She doesn't have a problem bungee jumping off of a bridge just to get the experience. She'd even go jumping out of a plane with a parachute just to feel the wind in her hair. She's not a risk taker because she only does these things if she knows for a fact that it is completely safe and is with people that she knows and trusts. She also will stand up to someone larger than her in order to protect her 'code of honor'. She has no problem facing a person with a gun if she feels that she is doing the right thing. She doesn't get scared of too many things.
» Likes: Keianna likes to train, although if there is too much of it, she does get a bit drained and sick of it. Keianna loves the idea of peace. She likes quiet. She enjoys the outdoors. Her one hobby, besides martial arts, is writing. Usually it's stories of little fantasies she can come up with, but every now and then she'll write some poetry...
» Dislikes: Keianna highly dislikes violence. She doesn't like bullies or people who try to intimidate her. Her absolute worst enemies are thugs. She will not tolerate them or their disgusting behavior. One of her pet peeves are people who disrespect their elders. That is the one thing that will make her actually want to yell at someone, and maybe even lose her 'calm'.
» Background: Keianna was born on November 4, 2395 in Karakura City. Unfortunately for her parents Ayumi and Daisuke, since they wanted at least three children, Keianna ended up being their only child. She had no siblings, so growing up her Father and Mother were practically her best friends. They raised her to be a proper, strong, and intelligent young woman. They supported her with a tough love that some people thought to be lost in the world. If she got into trouble, she was punished accordingly and was able to accurately learn right from wrong. Once she turned five years old, it slightly changed. Her parents stayed loving and supportive, but the head of the Tanaka family forced them to teach her martial arts. They didn't think that it was proper for a young girl to learn it, especially at such a young age, but since they were unable to have anymore children, it became a must. Usually the men of the family were the only ones who HAD to learn it. Keianna's mother, who married into the Tanaka family, learned martial arts willingly because she wished to relate more with her husband, and now it was her daughters turn.
At the age of fifteen, Keianna transferred to Karakura High School. It was upon the discovery of a special ability that she decided to come to this school. Like many children around her, she was able to see spirits and has enjoyed that aspect of her life since the day she realized it. Adding to that, she had discovered a way to collect the energy, not only within herself, but around her to create solid objects. Her parents were able to see spirits, but they had no powers such as these, so she had to go somewhere to be taught about it. They had no ability to do so. That was when she transferred to Karakura High. Keianna did her best to study with other students to help her control her power and even had begun to master it, which made her parents proud. A year later, in her second year at Karakura High, Keianna's Father had become ill. No longer able to work, Keianna immediately responded by getting a part-time job at a gift shop. The hours were flexible, the boss was kind, and the pay was fantastic for what she needed. Although her mother told her not to, she got the job anyway, refusing to sit by and watch their finances flow down the drain.
Because of everything she was now doing in her life, Keianna was becoming mentally drained. With her job taking up a lot of time, she had to do homework until one in the morning each night just to keep up with her grades. On the weekends, she didn't even get a break. That was when she was told to continue all of her martial arts training because the Head of the family did not want her becoming soft. Being in such a tired mental state, her parents began to notice a change in her. Her Father, Daisuke, noticed it too. Since he was sick, the fact that he was able to notice the change made her parents feel even worse. Keianna was usually a happy, cheerful, and active girl. Now, she was dull, calm, semi-emotionless, and seemed to daze out all the time. It was beginning to worry everyone, including the head of the family. He didn't change her schedule though. He continued telling Keianna's parents that “It's just a phase” and continued making her train. During training, she always seemed like her normal self, full of energy, strong, and alert. It was once she was out of training, at school, and sometimes at work that she was different. Her boss noticed this change a little later than the others, but was probably the only one to actually confront her about it. When Keianna told her boss what was going on, Mrs. Yashikabe gave her a week off. When that didn't help, her Mother forced her to quit and took over the job for her. Then, after being bedridden for two months, Keianna's father passed away in his sleep, leaving her and her mother alone.
Although it's been very hard, it's a year later and Keianna is entering her third year at Karakura High. Most of her friends had already graduated, her mother was now working a full time job, and her own training still continued through out the week, but now she had the weekends to herself. After one heck of an argument with the Head of the family, he finally gave in and let her have Saturday and Sunday to herself. She was beginning to go back to normal when it comes to her overly tired mindset and personality, but every now and then she'd revert back to it. That was only when she was tired, depressed, and when she was angry. It felt like her life was coming together though, so she didn't worry or get angry too much. She did her best in school and training. Her Mother even seemed happy with her job, so everything was perfect.
» Natural Attributes:
Advanced Martial Artist: Keianna has been trained as a martial artist since she was five years of age. It was then and still is her favorite thing to do. From kicks, to punches, to grabs... she can do it all. The girl is extremely fast, quick on her feet, and when she's moving she seems as light as a feather. She doesn't really have a set style that she practices because she's been taught multiple and studies anyone that she comes across. If she had to choose a style, hers would be Taekwondo. Training in Taekwondo generally includes a system of blocks, kicks, punches, open-hand strikes and a few sweeps and throws tossed into the mix. This style of martial arts can be brutal and deadly when used by someone like Keianna. Although she's proficient in all aspects of this style, she concentrates her own fighting around strong kicks that are initiated from a mobile stance. She emphasizing her legs longer range and strength, over the shorter reach of her arms.
Roundhouse Kick: This is one of the more well known kicks in the style of Taekwondo. It is very powerful and can definitely deal a great amount of damage if used in such a manner. Also known as a 'turning kick', this is when Keianna raises her knee, turns her hips, pivots on the grounded foot, and snaps her foot towards the target at an eighty to ninety degree angle. This kick can be used while jumping or spinning.
Front Snap Kick: This kick is very powerful and fast, hence the name front 'snap' kick. With this kick, Keianna will bend her knee and in a very quick snapping motion, shoot her foot straight up towards the target's head or upper torso area. It can also be aimed towards the stomach, but it will not be as powerful. The only time this is really powerful when aimed lower is if she is aiming at the sensitive area of a certain gender. This kick can be used while jumping.
Side Thrusting Kick: A very, very powerful kick that can either strike with the heel or with the side of the foot, depending on the damage that Keianna wishes to implement. This is when she turns her body 90 degrees away from the target, bends her knee and shoots it straight outwards towards the target. It can be aimed at the lower, middle, or upper part of the targets body and can deal a significant amount of damage.
Hook Kick: Although this isn't the easiest kick to pull of, nor is it the most popular kick invented, Keianna loves it. She uses it as a way to stop her opponent rather than do damage to them. She brings her leg upwards towards the opponent, but then brings her leg back and 'hooks' them. She can either choose to keep them hooked and prevent movement, or actually kick them to the ground. It all depends on how exactly the kick ends. This can be preformed while spinning and/or jumping.
Butterfly Kick: This kick is not something she learned from Taekwondo, but instead the style of Capoeira. It is when she pushes herself from the ground in the motion of a cartwheel, her hands now being used as her feet. During the flip, she uses both of her feet to strike the opponent. The flip ends with her 'flinging' her body back into a standing position once her feet have returned to the ground. This kick is very strong and if someone is hit by it, usually they will be knocked rather harshly to the ground.
Aerial Switch Kick: This kick is when she pushes off with her 'right' foot, sending her rather high into the air. While flipping, she turns her body and brings her 'left' foot down to the floor to land, while her 'right' foot comes down to strike the opponent. This is a very tricky kick and can cause problems if not executed correctly. It can be switched to where she pushes off with her left and strikes with her right.
Axe Kick: To pull off a kick like this, you have to be a person of extreme flexibility, and luckily Keianna is one of those people. With this kick, she brings her leg straight up into the air and in a very swift swoop, slams it down onto an opponent with full force and strength behind it. She'll usually only use this kick if she wants to damage her opponent a lot. When using it, she'll usually be jumping and use it in mid-air, but she can still do otherwise.
Advanced Weapons Training: Keianna, upon the discovery of her power, immediately began training with multiple weapons. She did not go for guns, but instead for blades. She ended up advancing in her swordsmanship, perfect with a katana, but is an expert in kunai and shuriken throwing. She uses each of them in the battles that she is ready to kill her opponent in. Her style when using these weapons is really no different than someone would see a ninja do. Fast, swift, stealthy, and extremely accurate. Keianna is not one to miss her target, and when she does it is usually because the target's direction shifted mid throw.
» Evolution Powers:
Solidification Of Energy: Keianna has the ability to literally solidify the energy that she has to create almost anything she wishes. The objects that she makes are extremely hard, if not impossible to damage or break. Every item that she creates has an extremely smooth surface, is as white as snow, and has a light pink, aura-like glow to it. The only time that these colors and textures change is when she purposely alters them upon creation, otherwise they are always the same. When she does decide to change the colors and textures, it takes a lot longer for her to create the item. When she makes something that would normally be made of fabric, such as a shirt or gloves, it's very quick and easy to do. Things that are harder, such as steel and rock, take much longer. Liquid is the easiest and fastest item that she is able to make. The smaller the item, the faster it is to build. The larger the item, the longer it takes. Once she runs out of energy, she can't make anything else.
The drawback for her power is the fact that everything she makes takes a certain amount of time, ESPECIALLY if the item she's making is larger, she's only made it a couple of times, and/or she's never made it at all before then. Once she is finished with the item, she just makes it disappear and absorbs it back into her storage of energy. Once the item is made, it's done. There is no constant use of her energy through out the situation just to maintain the object, unless she adds some sort of effect onto the item.
Mastered Items: (These are items that she has made so many times that it doesn't take very long, nor is it hard for her to currently create them.)
Katana: This item shouldn't be shocking to anyone that knows her. She practices with one every day and night, so making one was going to be a necessity in her mind. This katana is three foot long, has the standard curved edge, and glows just like all the items she creates. It's extremely smooth surface allows it to stay unbelievably sharp. It takes her two seconds to make this item.
Kunai and Shuriken: Both of these are small items that she mastered just because of daily practices with them, just like the katana. She needed to train herself with her weapons, so why not learn to create them with the ability that allows you to? Since she's been practicing for so long, the fact that she's mastered them is not shocking at all. It takes her one second to make four of these items.
Pencil: Yes. Keianna has a problem with losing her pencils, lending them out to someone, or forgetting them at home. Because of this habit of hers, she was forced to learn how to create one from thin air. Luckily her power allows this, otherwise she probably wouldn't be passing her classes in high school. Although a silly thing to have to master, it's come in handy on multiple occasions. If she lends one of these created pencils to someone, she just makes them disappear once class is over. No more people taking her pencils and never giving them back. Now they have no choice.
