Identifiers

Unique Markings

Hinami is blessed with natural ocean blue hair that is typically brushed straight and braided at the back. She considers doing so every morning as part of her morning ritual and tends to not deviate from it.Her horns are extra sharp even by auri standards, and she is extremely careful not to bump into someone with them, as they might even puncture unprotected skin with enough of a bump, not to mention hurt the poor girl.Despite her reserved demeanor she is clearly fine with showing a lot of skin on certain outfits of hers, and her body is incredibly toned to boot, with visible abs and defined muscles all over.

Hinami has striking ice blue eyes that are said to pierce the soul. She is sure to accentuate them as one of her best features with carefully applied eyeliner and shadow to make them pop. They glow with an aetherial aura.She is adorned in a myriad of jewelry pieces. The tips of her horns are covered in decorative brass and sapphire, her horns sport water lily earrings and contain a decorative cobalt mesh with vivianite gems. On her neck is a leather corded necklace with a blue diamond along with a blue azurite metal feather. On her right arm she wears a gold and silver bracelet which encases what appears to be a large emerald soul crystal. Lastly, the jingle of gold chain from the tip of her tail accompanies her walk.

Hinami is inked with irezumi, traditional eastern ink. On her back lay the intertwining of two eastern dragons. One silver scaled, another blue. Someone who is well versed in the Kami would recognize them as Kuraokami and Watatsumi, respectively.

Gear





Hinami carries with her into battle a cane of the blessed serpent Seiryu. It's supposedly a relic that has been in her possession for quite some time, and is imbued with a power magic that seems locked behind...something. Perhaps in time she will learn to harness its true power fully...


Hinami wears a small leather necklace around her neck that she rarely takes off, even when in the bath. It's supposedly just a memento from a time long ago, but keen eyes might note that the gem in the center pulses with a certain special type of aether. What she actually uses the necklace for is a mystery, but she will adamantly deny and deflect any attempt to discern the true nature of it.


In the blue hair of the raen one may spot a black feather. It appears preserved somehow, be it with magic or other means. She is extremely against anyone attempting to touch it, and when prodded where she received it, she will simply respond with this: "A long time ago, a very lovely raven bequeathed me his feather. I cherish it to this day, a sign of the trust this bird and I once shared."


Though used mostly for ceremonial purposes and in religious rituals, a dagger is still a dagger, and Hinami carries a Yukikaze Clan tanto with her wherever she goes. She is simply hopeful that she does not have to draw the blade dubbed Shisui save for the most grave or dire of circumstance.


One could hardly be considered a guuji of their own shrine without a gohei in their arsenal. The ceremonial rods, adorned with the 'zig-zag' tapestry on them, are often said to help in cleansing rituals. What manner of magic is actually channeled through the foci to facilitat in that is unknown, but one thing is for certain, Hinami treasures the relic.

Personality

Hinami Shimizu is a strong willed woman. Driven by her devotion to the twin dragon kami Watatsumi of water and Kuraokami of ice, she finds her faith guiding much of her decisions. Affable and benevolent, as a head priestess she is seen as easily approachable and easy to talk to.Beneath that, she is a trained healer who wishes to help those whom she crosses who are in need of her powers. Hinami believes healing to be an extension of the water dragon's will, and as such will do it without question and for no compensation. Overall, one might call her a bit self sacrificing, wishing to do the right thing as it is the Kami's will.She will be relatively guarded around anyone asking too many deep or prying questions, but over her years has learned how to deflect flawlessly from those looking a bit too deep. However, if one is respectful, she will be very open about much of her life or thoughts.A cunning strategist as well, she's a mind for tactics. They say she is the only person to consistently best Lord Yukikaze in chess.All that said, sometimes her work gets ahead of her, as do social obligations. She often can be seen retreating to what sanctuaries she keeps, mostly for a nap.

Roleplay Hooks


Nurturing Healer: Hinami is a travelling healer by nature. If she sees someone injured she will always do her best to lend aid, even if there is danger afoot!


Blessed Aether: As a Divine Priestess, Hinami sports a unique aetherial signature. If your character is at all sensitive to aether, hers would feel extremely pure and dense.


Be purged!: Her duties as a priestess include the purification of corrupted or malginant aether wherever she sees it. Those who are afflicted seeking cure may find succor in the raen.


Looking for Work? Hinami inherited a small mercenary company and bar that is always hiring people with a good heart who yearn to make a difference in the world. Well that or people who can tend bar! Perhaps you've seen a flier for her company, the Crimson Blossom?


Adventurer: One untraveled in the west, Hinami has fully embraced her new position as a company leader, and is now always on the look out for a new adventure. Wanderlust struck her hard!


Friendly Baker: One of the raen's side hobbies is baking! She's not amazing at it, and mostly sticks to eastern sweets, but is always willing to try a new recipe or share something sweet!


Animal Lover: Hinami tends to have an unusual affinity for animals. They seem to love her wherever she is! Perhaps you have a pet that approached the raen before you did?


Frigid Soul: One might assume a raen to be cold blooded and afraid of the snow, but that couldn't be further from the truth. She loves the mountains and cold, especially a good snowball fight if someone is up for it, and even radiates an icy aura!
