|They said this was a city for our kind, they said it was a safe haven from the rest of the world. This was suppose to be the city where we where safe from regular humans. But, in a city where Meta-Humans run rampant, is there such thing as safety? When taking what you want is as simple as waving your hand, or closing your eyes, how can there be law? In this city, the truth is there is only one source of law, and that are the different criminal organizations that have formed all around us. The only order is that of the darkest part of humanity, of criminal organizations where the strong thrive while the weak gasp for air. This is Niwa Nights.. This is our home. |

Technically, she's 30, but that's just how many years she has existed. Her body is only 16, as it stopped aging at that point in time, and started decaying instead.
Well, considering that she resides on free land, she has no current occupation.
Graveyard beside the church.
This strange form of a girl once alive is covered in bandages and what appear to be deep red scars. She stands at an even 5'6'' and carries herself like there still is a spark of life within her broken body. Long fingers bear the scars of her life when she was alive. For a dead girl, Haru is actually not very decayed, which is surprising, because she should be bones right now. The lack of food has shrunk her belly a little bit, but other than the scarring and lightening of her hair, no one would be able to tell her apart from when she was alive.
Instead of having her natural black hair, Haru is sporting a really light color with some red tinting in it. It hasn't thinned much, another product of decaying before actually dying. Her eyes, although colorful, hold no life in their sea-green irises. And where her freckles graced her cheeks there are now red lines. If only there were enough bandages to cover these things up forever. She wears the clothes she was buried in, but doesn't smell like death. She smells more like antiseptic and dirt combined.
Coming back to life and all, you'd think that Haru held a new, positive outlook on life. But after going through what she did before she died, she really only holds joy in seeing families together. This broken city seems to just bring back the painful memories from before her death, but she cannot leave it behind and move onto another place. This leaving, departing from Niwa, is something that she longs for, as she desperately needs to reconnect with the family she left behind.
Other than the infinite sadness surrounding this living corpse, this girl is mostly angry at the way the world has shrugged her off. She lashes out at almost anyone for no apparent reason. Upon meeting her temper for the first time, some have deduced that anything can set her off for no reason whatsoever.
Haru's story is long and very sad. Born as the love-child of Scott Frensif and Aya Nakyo in Niwa, her troubles began before she was even brought into the world. Her father, having made "a horrible mistake" by cheating on his fiance, left Aya to care for their unborn child by herself. Granted, he had no knowledge of the pregnancy at first, but sometimes men need to think with the right head. Needless to say, after Scott found out, he did all he could to help his ex-lover out without hurting his new wife too badly. It was just his luck that his wife got pregnant only a few months after Haru was born, and he had to care for two children, one he never saw.
Haru was not only separated from his love by a woman she had never met, but by seas as well. While the little girl grew up here in Japan, her father was taking care of his real family in the States. Her mother never married, and never spoke of Scott once. It was only when she was 8-years old that she had heard of him and learned what had happened between her parents (the way you could explain that to a child). This knowledge was gained on a flight to the US, on the way to Scott's funeral.
Scott Frensif had a deadly disease; deadly to those who had latent psychic powers that were never harnessed. This syndrome was passed down through genes, though still rather rare. Because of its rarity, it was named the Frensif Syndrome. Anyone with Scott's genes could contract it, but it only did damage to the psychics of the family. He passed after succumbing to the disease's fatal symptoms; the peeling away of the skin, after which it would never heal back. He was covered with scars as he lay in his coffin, and Haru was tortured by this sight in her dreams for a long time.
She never met her half brother and sister, as most of the people in the funeral parlor treated her mother and her as lepers and kept their distance. Haru only spotted them from a distance. It wasn't until years later that the whole ordeal would come full circle. At 14, Haru was diagnosed as having the same syndrome as her father. Unfortunately, after trying for a while, no psychic ability manifested in the girl, and she was forced to prepare for the worst.
Unlike her father, who had abilities and then lost them, Haru didn't stand a fighting chance against the disease. It's rapid spread through her body left her little time to plan her future, though she did try to make the best of it. The girl wanted to meet her half siblings before she went into the afterlife, and discussed it with her mother. Aya, instead of dealing with the crisis, turned her daughter over to some caretakers and went off to try and handle what was happening to their broken family.
Contrary to what her mother would have wanted, Haru decided to enroll in high school in America. She picked the town where she knew her half siblings would be and got in, as long as she paid for her travel and living expenses. Because of her disease, the school had no problem tending to her wishes; she really didn't have much longer to live.
It was here that she met her half-brother, who only ever wanted to find her his entire life. Rather than telling him who she was and breaking his heart when she passed on, she kept him company and listened to him talk about his life. He never did catch on to who she really was, despite her knowing exactly who he was the second she met him. It's hard to forget a face like that, after all.
The girl died after school started up after the winter break. For the last month or so, she was in and out of the hospital, and her brother stayed by her side the whole time. She was only 16 and only a month away from turning 17. The funeral was lovely, though not many family members attended. It was there that Charlie met Haru's mother and discovered that she was his half-sister all along. Discovering who she was too late was the biggest heartbreak of his life, and the reason he devotes himself so much to helping others. Haru was the best friend he ever had, and he blames himself for her suffering. They buried her in Japan so that her mother could visit her all the time, bandages and all.
Several years later, she opened her eyes to the darkness of her coffin. It took a few days, but she finally crawled out of the dirt to find the world exactly how she left it, minus the pain in her skin. At first, she was confused, as she thought herself to be a zombie and thought she should crave flesh. Instead she was just an undead person who craved nothing at all. She wandered around a little for a while to find out her mother had moved away and she couldn't leave the city. Now Haru isn't sure what else to do, but she figures she's up for anything.
Haru doesn't feel pain, or cold, or heat for that matter. This can be a plus and a minus all at once. While it works for combat situations, it's not exactly practical. If a part of her was on fire that she didn't see, then she could burn up into ash without even realizing it, and honestly, she doesn't really want to die again. She's also never hungry. Sometimes she can be thirsty, but the feeling fades quickly.
The dead girl can also control dead things, though nothing human sized, of course. For now, it's mostly rats and other tiny dead things, and only a few at a time, as her psychic powers have finally manifested into some kind of necromancing. But eventually, she probably could control a whole army of dead things. Then maybe she could single-handedly run the zom-pocolypse.
This event seems highly unlikely however.
Bandages, a bracelet with her half-brother's name on it, a few family tokens she was buried with.
SHE'S NOT A ZOMBIE.
Promising to the Oath:
How many times do I hafta do this before you believe me that I'll behave? lol I, Rukkai, promise to do my best to uphold the laws of the land and to keep Haru from eating other people on the site.

About the only time losing is more fun than winning is when you're fighting temptation.
