Pet: Cockatiel - Hawk named Puru.
Nation: Born in Ba Sing Se. Moved to Republic City five years ago.
Orientation: Pansexual. Gender doesn't matter when it comes to love. Romance is of little interest to her though.
Occupation: Librarian and freelance inventor.
Combat Style: None. Tsukushi isn't really the 'fighting' type. If worst comes to worst though, she'd use her tools as weapons.
Interests: Books, history, motors, gears, oil, not being blown up by her own inventions, sweets, and baking from time to time. Inventing.
Fears: She has a strong dislike of water, but won't ever really admit it's a phobia. Tsukushi cannot swim, mostly due to having only one leg. She often stiffens up in the presence of large amounts of water.
Alliance: Currently none.
Odd Facts: Most of her inventions blow up in her face. She also has a prosthetic leg, and walks with a bit of a limp.
Family: Takeru [Father, 52], Makino [Mother, 45], Shinji [Elder Brother, 23], Hatsu [Twin Brother, 19]
Personality: Tsukushi is a bit of an oddball. She tends to be oblivious of most anything, unless it directly concerns her or her hobbies. She does have a deep love of books though, and in her spare time will read what she can. Normally, she's unaware of news unless she reads it somewhere. Radios never last long with her, as she's often tearing them apart to use for parts. Tsukushi is honest and forthright, unafraid to speak her mind if need be. While interacting with others isn't exactly high on her list of priorities, every now and then she'll venture forth to try and make a new friend, albeit unsuccessfully. Many tend to be put off by the fact that she usually smells of old books or motor oil.
Tsukushi's passion in life is inventing, and her greatest role model was once Sato, inventor of the Sato Mobile [his moral choices aren't what upset the young inventor, but rather the fact that he was responsible for inventing something designed to harm others]. While she hopes to one day break into the big time and create the next big invention, she's more about the purity of inventing, experimenting, and fiddling. Much like her father, she adores tinkering and trying to make things better, or make something to help people's lives go easier.
Surprisingly creative and resourceful, Tsukushi keeps a stash of various tools hidden away in a few compartments of her prosthetic leg. The tools themselves are spaced throughout the limb, as putting them all in one place would severely reduce the functionality of the device. Tsukushi enjoys a challenge, and has a deep desire to go on a great adventure before she dies. Inspired by her favorite novels, she seeks to travel around on her own the world one day, via airship. [Preferably one she built herself.]
History: Tsukishi takes after her father, a non-bender, and is the only child in the family to do so. Her elder and twin brothers are both Earthbenders, and often enjoy listening to probending matches in their hometown. Tsukushi developed a love of inventing at a young age, and often would run experiments with her father. He worked as a professor at Ba Sing Se university.
At the age of eight, she was involved in an accident. A cart had gotten lose from a passing caravan, and threatened to run over her twin brother. Without batting an eye, Tsukushi flung herself at her brother, knocking him out of the way. She survived herself, but her shinbone was shattered, the muscles torn to shreds in her left leg. The limb was amputated, and Tsukushi was confined to a wheelchair.
She and her father worked hard to develop an artificial limb that she could wear, while her brother Shinji, stricken with guilt, became intensely protective of his little sister. He'd hardly let her go anywhere without him, and while Tsukushi enjoyed spending time with him, she was worried that the guilt would eventually destroy him. A year later, she and her father finished the prosthetic limb, and Tsukushi began the hard task of training her body to use it. Over the past few years, she has been modifying the limb herself to make it more comfortable as well as more versatile.
Following her desire for knowledge, Tsukushi left Ba Sing Se at the age of fourteen to move in with her aunt in Republic City. She lives in an apartment above one of the large libraries, and works there part-time in order to cover for her room and board. Her true passion might be inventing, but she has developed a great appreciation for the written word. Tsukushi hopes to one day write a novel herself.
