AboutShe may not look like one, but she definately is a half elf. Due to an extremely rare mutation in her DNA she was born without that characteristic trait we all know elves by: their pointy ears. But her birth was overshadowed by bad fortune.
Before she was born, her mother, who was a fullblood elf, collapsed in the Zen Gardens after a long journey. She was exiled from her clan because she got pregnant from a human male, which was the biggest disgrace an elven woman could bring upon herself.
She was found by people from an elusive clan of ninjas, which took her in. Not long after she started to get into labour and gave birth to a girl. But weakened as she was, she lost consciousness just before she heard the first cries of her daughter. The effort they put into keeping her alive were fruitless. The birth drained her from her last bit of strength that kept her alive. The baby girl was named Izumi and was adopted by Kin, a high ranked member of the clan.
As she grew older, she developed some distinctive physical features that elves possess. She was more agile than any of the children in the clan and her reflexes were also above average. Kin noticed this but she was still a bit too young to be trained because she was 5 years old. He decided to take her on as an apprentice after her 7th birthday.
Years went by and she proved to be one of the most talented students Kin ever had. She learned quickly so she soon outpaced all the children of the clan. On her 16th birthday Kin decided it was time to tell her the truth about her mother. Since she was raised by someone from the clan, she never knew any better than them being her family, she was rather surprised to hear that the people that took care of her as if she were their own flesh and blood weren't her real parents.
Another 5 years later she completed her training with Kin. She mastered everything he could teach her, but that didn't mean her training was over. The second part of her training took place outside the Zen Gardens, into the wide open world. She will encounter many new people and make friends as well as enemies.
"To grow, one must experience", were the words of her master that echoed in her mind as she embarked on the journey of her lifetime.
