You listen well... for thirty years, you make the fish, I get the sake. If this were the military, I'd be General by now!

Name: Sayuri Shimizu
Age: 24
Gender: Female
Height: 5'5"
Weight: 141
Eye Color: Red
Hair Color: Black, died variable colors
Ethnicity: Japanese
Appearance: Thin, muscular, and decorated with vivid colors. Sayuri is a petite little peacock, with little regard for modesty (or good taste). Whatever strikes her fancy at a given moment, and she has access to, she dons without a second thought. This leaves her something of a highly eccentric and incongruous cosplayer.

Other Information:
  • Occupation: Bodyguard
  • Likes: Butterflies, jelly beans, funky flares, diamond rings (Pretty much anything shiny...)
  • Dislikes: Limits, interruptions, hyper-durable alloys not of her own possession
  • Leitmotif: Three-Star Chef's Song

Biography: "She's that ditzy chick with the sword." That's about all anyone really knows about Sayuri. And for good reason - she's done really nothing of any particular note in her entire existence. Well, aside from getting really crazy good with a sword, but what the hell who even knows how. Does she look like the kind of girl to put in the sheer amount of time and effort that level of mastery takes? More likely she just watched way too many chop-socky films and got really good at emulating them. Everybody's gotta have a hobby.

Of course a hobby isn't a job. She's just lucky she's cute enough to pass for grunt work. Or recline on desk work. Or sit-in-the-room-and-sufficiently-unnerve-people-with-your-strangeness work. You could call her a sellsword, maybe, if she ever really drew the thing or used it more than once a lunar epoch. In that sense she's more like an escort, albiet less smoochy smoochy and more chanbara-chan.

It's also clear she's not exactly a cheap thing to have around. She loves to eat, she loves to shop, and if she's not kept sufficiently entertained she has a bad habit of wandering off. A bored bodyguard is not a happy or fulfilled one. Very quickly, they may not be an employed one either, and then what are you going to do? Maybe you shoulda got her those platinum unicorn earrings after all, then you wouldn't have a band of mayan ninjas menacing you and no one to defend your cheap ass.

Wait, what was the question again?

Mobile Weapon: VangRay
Affiliation: Starseeker Combine

Combat Style: Flash
Combat Theme: Powerful Eater
Strengths: Though you'd hardly believe it to look at her, Sayuri is nigh-peerless with her blade. Once roused from her lackadaisical languor, the waggish wastrel becomes a swift and stylish swordswoman. So nimble are her motions, so solid her defense, that one might question if she's even tethered to gravity, let alone reality. Similar motions have been programmed into her machine as well - and it bears a pair of Shishiou blades to use them with.
Weaknesses: The woman just plain don't care. That lack of passion can keep her from entering a battle to begin with, and keep her motions sluggish and lazy until something piques her interest. Even then, as formidable as the furious flurries she issues are, she's still small and it's still a slender sword. Moreover, while her machine can ape many of the moves of her sword style, it's not really built to properly partake in that sort of melee.
