A mother and father hold their precious first child, a baby girl they name Ayame Natsume, Ayame meaning "iris", her mother's favorite flower and "Natsume" meaning summer, her fathers favorite season. The babies cries soon settle as her mother sings her to sleep. That evening, the new family leaves the hospital and journey to their rural home some miles from the busy city. They arrive to what looks like a home from a story book, a large cabin surrounded by lush forest and a clear night sky lit by a full moon and billions of stars. As days became months, little Ayame's personality soon becomes energetic and curious as she explores, being able to walk at the age of two almost three. For her sixth birthday, her father surprised her with a tree house he built that also had a small hut where she could safely stay the night with her friends or by herself. Everything was perfect to her, she felt like she was the luckiest girl to live in such a wonderful home with loving parents. Some days she would experience sudden changes on her own body, not puberty changes, but animal-like changes. Example, a sudden pair of ears and a tail popping out or changes in behavior. The reason is her father is a shapeshifter but her mother is human, making Ayame half human and half shapeshifter. In school, she kept to herself making it hard to make friends. But she was a wonderful student with good behavior..Most times. Sometimes she would get in trouble when her shapeshifter side acted up but others couldn't tell that she was different. This worried her parents, so they spoke to her teacher about moving her to a school much closer to home. An agreement was made, she could complete kindgergarten through middle school at the much smaller rural school but had to return to the city school for freshman year through highschool. Emberassed and angry, Ayame ran away from home. 3 days later she was found, later that night the family had a long through talk in attempts to help her understand and accept herself for who she is. When she reached freshman year, she sat alone in the back of the train and sat alone in her classroom, but the students seemed more friendly and even curious to know her. On the days where she started trouble the students would start rumors that began the bullying, one of her biggest fears. One afternoon during lunch, a more popular girl and her two friends approached Ayame from behind. They giggled and started calling her names like "freak" or "weirdo" some students stood up for Ayame and some played along while Ayame tries her hardest to ignore the mix of male and female voices. Her temper grew, she was close to loosing control and be forced in a state of possession but the teacher came in and scolded the rowdy students. That evening after getting off the train, Ayame started to run home, tears flowing from her eyes. Afraid of that violent feeling she had. At home, she shut herself in her room, she started screaming "why" over and over, crying herself to sleep. Now older and soon to graduate from high school, the family decides to vacation for the summer and keep their precious daughter happy and her mind off the struggles of school. But during this vacation her father was going to teach her about her shapeshifting side and train her how to control it. Her quick learning surprised her father, but she did struggle along the way. He could see great potential in her, knowing that she would be more of a lover than a fighter, but also knew that she would protect the ones she cares about most.
While half changed, she is mostly human but with features such as ears, tail, and the natural ways of the creature. Almost as if she has a second personality.
