Name: River Alias': The Assassin Gender: Female Age: 23 Affiliation: Whoever hires her.
Appearance Description: River is quite an interesting looking figure, although she isn't anything out of the normal. Her attire, first of all, consists of a small black singlet, completely revealing her arms and slim figure; blue stripes appearing to be running up the sides of it. Along with this, on her right hand she appears to have a red glove, she has shown a fond liking to the colour red for her job, assassinations. Like the red gloves, towards her feet she can be found wearing red and white shoes; typically trainers which are a solid red, with two stripes of white on either side around her ankle. She had pure white cargo-pants which have pockets shown all over them, as well as a tight lacing of string wrapped around her ankles and bottom of her legs to keep the pants from flapping about when she's on the move. Not only this, but on her arm, where here forearm meets her biceps, is a sweat band which covers the elbow and a small portion of the forearm and biceps.
For her physical appearance, it is nothing out of the normal for a Japanese girls. Although, she has had some modifications to change herself. Her body type is rather slim, a small bust on her chest and her arms, legs and even neck appearing to be quite thin. Down her right arm, she has a tattoo of what appears to be some sort of computer-code, nobody knows what it means. This tattoo runs all the way down until a bit past her elbow, stopping just before it hits her neck. As well as this tattoo, under her right eye, she has two tattooed lines dropping, as if they were drawn on with eye-liner, however they are tattoos. Her hair is cut off before her shoulder, being completely black and well ordered. A rather distinctive appearance, although not distinctive enough to be called out in a crowd.
Personality: River's personality is quite possibly her strongest trait as a human. Her first and foremost notable feature of her personality is her cunning and smarts. She is quite smart when it comes to both assassination, battle and general every day life. she has quite a bit of general knowledge of the world around her as well as the world's within the void, the demon worlds, k-world, soul society, etcetera. Her personality is nothing short of weird, also. Another one of the main features within her personality is her tendency to be quite quirky and weird. She spends all of her times isolated by herself, only being contacted by those who have the right means. She prefers isolation, keeping to herself rather than being involved in the world. Her main philosophy in this instance is, "Why be surrounded by people that annoy you when you can be perfectly comfortable on your own?". This stems from her hatred from the world, as seen in her past. Her past was dark, no doubt about that, but she has a pure, unequalled hatred for people and the world which they all live in. It's not as if she's evil or wants to watch it burn, but the way it currently is? She wants to tear the system apart and rip open the fabrics of this false dystopia life.
Along with her hatred for most people within the world, she finds a strange comfort in some things. Her comfort which is quite weird for most other powerless humans, is her fascination for the powered beings. she finds them interesting and often tries to team up with them for missions or if they hire her. The key of this is; she doesn't envy their powers or anything, no she already considers herself unique. The main feature of her being teamed up with or opposing powered people is their abilities, so she can study them. As she is powerless, with no spiritual essence, she cannot see shinigami, hollows, etc without external aid. So, along with this, she mainly studies humans who have been shown to have powers capable of crushing their enemies. A strange comfort, indeed. she feels safer around them than normal people.
Assassination One of the key characteristics about River is her amazing assassination abilities. Not only is she capable of combat straight up with a person and can use all of her strength to disarm, disable and even kill them, but she finds an abundance of ways to take out her target. Although, her main ability within her assassination arsenal is her accuracy. For a human, she is considered the most accurate sniper or ranged-weapon user ever. Not only is she accurate, but her accuracy has caused her to be even hired by the Japanese government or other governments to assassinate people they didn't want in the world any more. Not only her accuracy, but she also has a keen eye. With the average sniper rifle, River is capable of hitting a target that is, at most, two kilometres away. However, with a more enhanced sniper, like the one she has manufactured, her distance can be much further.
Free-running River's free-running skills are said to be unequalled. In a cyber-punk styled world, River has shown incredible ability to be able to run, climb, slide, anything based around acrobatics, with extreme ease. For example, say she had to scale a building to find a spot to kill her target, River would be able to scale something even as crazy as the empire state building. Not only this, but she is capable of leaping from roof tops to roof tops with the knowledge of being able to land saftely on the case of large falls, too. Her skills in acrobatics and free-running is absolutely amazing.
Intelligence Not only is she an amazing free-runner, she is also quite the tactician in both battle and out of battle. She is capable of analysing many different aspects of people are can pull out any flaws, battle tactics and even something as tough as expressions when she says something that may offend them. Not only this, but she has a vast knowledge of the world around her; capable of pulling out information from many sources if need be. Not only do people hire her for her assassination abilities, but they also hire her for analysis and spying missions. She is capable of taking detail in every little action a person makes, making her the ultimate spy.
Bulls-eye Rifle Her bulls eye rifle is her main weapon in her assassination techniques, which is quite possibly her main weapon. The rifle is huge, spanning longer than her body when completely assembled. The rifle is two metres long once assembled correctly, almost looking similar to a Barrett .50 Calibre gun. The gun is titanium plated, making it extremely heavy at some times. Usually, she has it dis-assembled to carry it up placed, then assembling it at the area she wishes to snipe from. This particular rifle is capable of shooting bullets that are one three inches thick. These bullets can completely shatter a persons bones, rip open their body and leave them dead and out for the counting. The rifle that was made for her is capable of shooting up to, astoundingly, ten kilometres distances at maximum. Typically, with this gun, she prefers to be within five or so kilometres otherwise it takes a while to get a definite shot on the opponent.
EMP Grenades These are fairly straight forward grenades, they are capable of shutting off any and every electrical devices that are around. Once she enters a thread, she typically has three of them on her; and each one has a blast radius of one hundred metres, shutting off every electrical device in those hundred metres.
Knives These knives are considered the secondary weapon the River, as she can use them in both close-combat and from a distance. In total, there are around fifteen knives stashed all over her body, majority of them being strapped to her legs and in her pockets. These knives are capable of being used at close range when the enemy is close, stabbing them and running off, also being able to throw them extremely far. Quite possibly her most interesting and brutal ways of killing someone relentlessly.
Police Laptop River, sometimes, can be found to go on solo missions, killing people or spying on people that she has found to be of annoyance or needed gone personally. For this purpose, along with her clients, she has access to the logs and contacts of the police within the world, being able to adapt depending on what area she's in. Not only this, but the laptop has logs of criminals, last known locations, police headquarters, everything that the police knows that she may need to know.
River's history was always a tragic one, it also started out at a young age. Ever since she was five, her parents used to take her onto rallies where they would protest against the established order, mainly being set in Karakura these riots and rallies. At this time, she didn't even know what the rallies were for, she didn't know what they meant. The world was foreign to her, and she was happy stuck in her little world of being oblivious. When she reached nine, she was taken to yet another rally. These people were marching the streets, the police with batons ready to stop them, beating every person they could find. The rally had turned ugly. River hid for most of it, curling up in a corner and crying until she could no longer hear the screams and violence of those outside. Not only this, but as she walked out, all she saw was blood everywhere. The rally they caused... turned into a riot of nothing but death, a massacre of everyone she grew up with. Among them all, her mother and father. The only reason she had managed to escape was her intense running away and hiding, blending in with her surrounding to resemble nothing but a mere object. She never understood the rallies, she didn't even know what they meant. Now she understood. The only people within her family left was her sister and her, that was all. Nobody to carry on the legacy, nobody to live on as their parents. Just two sisters who were trying to get by in a world they knew nothing about.
As River was growing up, her life became tough. As a teenager, she was stuck on the streets begging for money and ending up being so hungry she had to steal. This was the establishment that her parents were fighting against and the order of life that was so horrible, that there can be people in churches of gold to worship the lord, but they can't feed the poor and helpless. This, was what was wrong with the world. She was fighting against these types of people. One day, she was cornered by a group of hoodlums. They were going to beat her up purely based on the fact she was poor and living without her parents. She run, jumping over fences and buildings, until she was finally cornered into a ally way, nothing but shattered glass and bottles behind her with a large wall. she stood there as they came closer, leaning down to the ground and picking up a large shard of glass, charging at one of the and stabbing them in the gut, pushing him away as he bled from his stomach. Following this, she looked at the glass held in her hand covered in blood, as her hand was also soaked in blood. The other thug began to run away, simply; River threw the glass through the air; hitting him with a thud into the back of the head, blood instantly leaking out from his head. At this moment, she had sworn to be an assassin, a spy. To hide in plain sight and to fight the order of the corrupt, a hired gun.
