Kaede Tokugawa - Last Hope for the Old Regime

on Fri Aug 26, 2011 2:06 pm
Name: Kaede Tokugawa - 楓-徳川

Nationality: Japanese

Affiliation: ???

Gender: Female

Age: 19

Appearance: Kaede has long, dark brown hair that reaches her waist, sometimes it is held up into an elaborate bun. She is slender, but curvacious and has a pretty, rounded face. Her eyes are hazel and said to hold a deep warmth. Around 5'4'', she is short yet astoundingly beautiful. Normally, she wears brightly colored kimonos, either baby blue or green, tied around by a traditional women's obi sash.

Personality: Though she is a girl from the Tokugawa Clan, she doesn't act like it. Kaede has a quirky sense of humor, laid-back, and not at all fussy about things such as mannerisms and tradition. Since the fall of her Clan's power from the government in Japan, she has mostly become an independent woman, however is secretive of her origins. In contrast to her normal disposition, Kaede can be very stubborn and self-centered. Oblivious to the goings-on about the Meiji regime that she happens to be a part of, she usually pays no attention to people's intentions in that matter.

History: Born to the last Shogun, Yoshinobu Tokugawa, she was his first, and only daughter - only around five during the entire Revolution. By the end, she went into exile alongside her father, though when he died, she was forced to live more or less an independent life at age ten. Although looked after by her elder brother, he found her to be quite the hand-full as a child.

Growing up in the Meiji Era, she went to school properly and attained an education under the name of Kaede Matsudori, since the Tokugawa name, at that time, was taboo'd. By the age of fifteen, she was off on her own and even managed to procure a small job as a clothing seamstress at a local shop.

It was ten years after the Revolution, at age 19, that Kaede was soon approached by a man, calling after her to be what she was meant to be... to take up a certain mantel.

Weapon(s): Tanto - she doesn't exactly know how to use it very well though knowing no martial arts. It is used for self-defense.

Fighting Style: None
