Reppu at a Glance
Somewhat odd, glowing green eyes might be immediately drawing, but then you get to the woman beyond those. Strong-willed, determined, and possibly abrasive, Reppu is not known to mince words unless a soft tone would make a difference. An accomplished adventurer in her own right, with magical prowess of note, this Raen keeps her body and mind equally honed to enable her to step into a situation with confidence fitting her pedigree of knighthood and sorcery. Albeit taller than your average Raen, poise and physique show a history of combat and constant strives to keep herself in a condition worthy of her standing.
Feldschlacht: Fighting. More fighting. Reppu is distinctively battle-hardened, for better or for worse. Be it fighting in the wars of the land, her training in traditional Ishgardian war techniques, or just getting into the odd scrap. Rich in experience, practical or otherwise, her ability to adapt in a fight is noteworthy. Difficult to catch flat-footed, often bored and hard to surprise, Reppu is not too eager to engage in combat unless something is truly intriguing to her. - "Fighting is a must needs, not a pleasure. If you just want to fight to satisfy yourself, you better look elsewhere."
Sharlayan Academic: As a younger lass, Reppu spent much time in the Sharlayan colony of Dravania, along with her exemplared instructor and scholar of a mother, Rika Hijiri. While only brief and infrequent visits to the mainland of Sharlayan were ever done, one with some knowledge of the culture and people may be able to identify her as a practitioner of manoutics and greater sorcery. Or, at the very least, have heard of her mother. Or, perhaps, the legendary Primal of Eat, the Bringer of the End (Of Snacks), Kuru the Carbuncle? - "Sharlayan? Sorry, if you want private tutoring, find someone else."
A Promise Unforgotten: It is no secret Reppu is an adamant believer in justice, exacting and ensuring it is brought to a swift and absolute end. Her passion is to the point of zealotry, but there is a method to the madness, and a promise kept close to the chest to carry her onward. - "I will protect everything, and everyone. Nothing, nothing at all, will stop that ambition."
Embrace the Anima: Reppu's life force is vibrant, and is one of her most dominating traits. To the point her ability to use intuitive magic at a whim is probably one of her greatest strengths, her deep connection with the natural flow of the world and the things within it allows a certain level of immediate knowledge when it comes to 'living, breathing items'. Anima flows in everything. - "Just take a deep breath, and let it all go. Better than grinding your knuckles to a pulp."
Dark Seeker: Not a hunter of game, but of threats and denizens of the dark, Reppu is never afraid to get her hands dirty in smiting that which does not belong in this world. Be it voidsent, 'Others', or anything else, the world is far better off with out such entities plaguing it. - "This is really non-negotiable. Save it for whoever judges you in oblivion."
A Touch of Blood: 'Hijiri' is a name drunk deep in the Age of Blood, but any mentioning of such is at best getting a shrug from the woman. "Ask my mother about that, do you think I was even around for that time?". More recently, Reppu is engaging further in her Hingan roots. - "Honestly, the Far East is less troublesome than dealing in Eorzea now."
Land and Sky: Reppu's father, dubbed 'Regius' to most, is an archeologist and historian of history shared between the Landlords and Skylords. As such, in helping her father maintain his collection, Reppu has an eye for older pieces of history dating back a thousand years or so. On the topic of Ishgard, Reppu has little to say. - "They are in a better sort of it all now. Good."
Hello, World!: Fueled by deep spite and a hint of curiosity, Reppu's hands have been ever busy progressing her knowledge in machina and technology in a broad whole. Her homestead being largely powered by a mixture of steam and electric curiosities is a sign of that further push toward advancing herself beyond just magic and prayer. If she is ever caught speaking to herself, she is probably not -actually- speaking to herself, over ensuring the more mechanized automatons in her workshop are not going haywire. Or the Spriggans. - "If the Gods are going to be absent, picky, or otherwise ignorant of our plight, then why not take it into our own hands? You need not be gifted in magic to push your ambition through. Try a gun, it has worked for me so far."
The Cosmic Balance: Actions have consequences, be it nearer or or farther in the future. Reppu's stance on karma, and the absolute nature of good and evil, is one of utter extremes. Tragedy comes from when one side grows too strong, and absolute annihilation if it snuffs their opposite out. On a personal and universal scale, the inner workings of this being are both fascinating, and utterly horrifying. - "Hero? I am no hero. Leave such lofty titles to my best friend. Me? Just her ever dutiful shadow. Doing whatever it takes to make her shine."
Hi! I am Reppu, nice to meet you! I am an incredibly active Roleplayer, keen on long term and short term engagements. Lore-abiding with a slice of absurdity for the sake of flavor, anything sensible is up for grabs.Just be respectful, be polite, and know that while the Raen might be an abrasive punk, I myself try my best to be considerate to everyone I engage with. Thank you for looking at this thing!For those looking to fight this funny little Raen... eh. FIGHT RP is not my jam these days with out some script involved. Sorry, but if you are interested in further depth, do ask.Finally, Reppu has the circumstantial Echo Power to observe the Fourth Wall being blindsided like it does during The Rising, and will comment on it in a fit of random psychosis. Why? Because sometimes RP makes no sense. This typically only happens when a scene has broken down and the only thing to resolve it is cat memes. Blame Yoshida for giving me this power.PS: Sorry about Kuru. But not sorry.
