GENERAL CHARACTER STATISTICS

Character Name: Shinobu, Manami (to endure; love beauty)
Gender: Female
Species/Race: Japanese American
Age: 16
Birthplace: Somewhere in the Caribbean Sea. (On a cruise ship.)
Current Residence: Kyoto, Japan
Occupation: High School Student

PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS

General Appearance: Manami is a buxom blond with fair skin, taking after her American mother. She has wide curvy hips with a smaller waist. Her fashion sense is superb – always on to the latest trends and styles. Babydoll shirts, cute little mini skirts, platform shoes, sparkling hair clips; these are all staples of her closet. When forced to wear a school or worm uniform, she’ll still jazz up her style with trendy accessories.
Strengths: Dance! She’s super skilled on her feet, doing all sorts of dance styles. Her body is very flexible and bouncy.
Weaknesses: Pushups, pullups, anything where she has to use strength in her arms.

MENTAL CHARACTERISTICS

Current Goal/Purpose: Survive her new school. Normally, that’s no big deal, she’s totally used to moving around… but this place is soooo bizarre!
Talents: Fast talking and charming anyone with a pen-…anyone that has eyes!
Inabilities: Cooking, Chemistry, Singing, Japanese (that’s the MOST embarrassing, her father is SO disappointed!)
Fears: Public Embarrassment. Really, how do you survive after something like that?!
General Personality: LIKE OMG HIIIIII! Manami is a bubbly socialite. She loves being around crowds of people, being in the middle of some sort of excitement whether it’s super fun or even a huge drama. A little chatterbox, she’s also spends a lot of time gossiping, chatting on the phone with her seemingly limitless contact list of friends, or butting in to someone else’s business. Manami is guilty of having twenty crushes at once, and even getting a little out of hand at boy-stalking when there’s a guy she particularly likes. Overall, she’s a good friend and always willing to back someone up when they need it.
Inner Personality: There’s very little about Manami that she isn’t willing to share with everyone, even when it’s not asked. In fact, she has a bad habit of sharing TOO MUCH. Manami wants very much to be liked and fit in to whatever new place she’s in, so she offers as much of herself as she can give, in hopes that everyone will see something they can related to and give their friendship back. This seems to be working for her, despite her occasional obnoxiousness, as she’s so very genuine about wanting someone’s friendship.
Secret: Manami has no secrets… so far!

HISTORIC BACKGROUND

General History: Manami was born to Akihiro Shinobu (a world traveling linguist born in Japan) and Linda Lewis (one of the rich and fabulous New York socialites), while on a cruise ship during one of her parents vacations. Mr. Shinobu, being such a brilliant mind with languages spends much time traveling the world studying, teaching, and doing translation work in different countries. He met Linda Lewis while in Washington at a random big-wig party. They try to say it was love at first sight, but it was several meetings on down the line before the pair started dating and eventually married.

Loving their around-the-world lifestyle, even after Manami was born they didn’t slow down their travels. Europe, Africa, Asia, the family rarely spend long than a year or two in a single location, making it hard to Manami to settle, and even harder to leave once she made friends. She spent most of her younger years with tutors for her schooling up until she was old enough to start High School. She spent her first two years of High School in Los Angeles, California while her father was a Linguist teacher at a college.

Present Life: Akihiro was recently offered a superb job in his home country of Japan, where he has moved his family and enrolled Manami in Chikushi High. This latest move was a little unsettling, after she was finally so well adjusted to life in America. This new school seems kind of scary, and even worse… she’s discovered her Japanese is awful. He father is soooo embarrassed (He’ a linguist, his own daughter should be good at languages! Even worse, it’s half her heritage!)… and she’s just hoping she can make a good impression and make her papa proud!

Power/Ability: Manami is a magnet for trouble. No, literally. She is a magnet. Manami has this weird ability to draw in power and energy and just… hold it. She really has no idea. It’s completely useless to herself, she can’t do anything with it. But anyone who takes a hold or use of Manami could use her like a magical battery. They could drain someone else of their magical energies or replenish their own.

Clubs/Affiliations: Cinema Club, Drama Club, and Fashion Club!

Allies/Friends: Manami has no friends in this part of Japan. :( It’s sad!

Akihiro was recently offered a superb job in his home country of Japan, where he has moved his family and enrolled Manami in Kazeyama High. He had intended to send her to a local public school, but they received a special invitation directly from the school with all her tuition paid in full scholarship! This latest move was a little unsettling, after she was finally so well adjusted to life in America. This new school seems kind of scary, and even worse… she’s discovered her Japanese is awful.
