character and title: Color refined rendition of Shiori Ohura
from "Fighter's Spirit"
(Inspired from the anime Yu Yu Hakusho)
Shiori Ohura was an ordinary Tokyo high school student taking a break from her usual studies, when a run-in with a mysterious little girl changed her life. Having no choice but to protect the girl who was being chased by armed hitmen, Shiori brought her to a safe hiding place when a rocket propelled grenade launched from one of the hitmen blown Shiori. Owing Shiori for saving her life, the girl, later known as Ekdikisi (Greek for revenge), used her extraordinary healing powers to save her from near death.
Shiori found out that not only she was healed by her near-fatal injuries, but was given martial arts-based superpowers and amazing agility. Ekdikisi told her she is the descendant of an ancient warrior clan deputized to defend the world from an evil supernatural army for martial arts warriors who once again threatened the world. Shiori is later became a leader of a covert fighting force who were also descendants of similar warrior races who fought against this threat.
Despite her tomboy status, Shiori is a good-natured girl. Shiori is serious and stern whether when studying for a math test, or battling evil minions. Although she sometimes has to deal with her personal demons, she is reluctant to sacrifice herself to protect her family and friends. She has an uncomfortable relationship with fellow member Hideki Ojirufao, who has a romantic interest in her, but they remain friends and comrades. Her favorite hobby is playing Lacrosse. Her favorite food is Japanese rice balls.
Shiori is the most athletic of the team; she is a championship-caliber runner, swimmer, diver and gymnast (her favorite gymnastic activity is the floor exercise). She is a trained tactician and a skilled situation analyst. Her given powers are chi-based speed and straightforward attacks, including an ability to shoot powerful beams from her hands, as well as peak human agility and reflexes. She is a black belt in Kyokyushin Karate and judo. She is also heavily trained in non-bladed martial arts weapons such as bo staffs and wooden swords. She studies politics, ancient artifacts and criminal law.Influences/inspirations:
