砂鉄梅 Ume Satetsu
Date of Birth:
April 2 CR 500
Ume is very shy and anxious in social situations. She trusts very few people and hates being around strangers. It takes her a long time to open up to others. She feels pressured by her family to be better than she is, and has a perfectionist streak that often leaves her feeling upset. When Ume gets to know someone and trusts them, she would quite literally die for them and is fiercely loyal. She is very creative and crafty, as seen with her puppets and other creative outputs such as music. She prefers solo activities to group ones and dreads having to become a shinobi. Aside from her anxious demeanor, Ume can be very kind and compassionate, though she also has bouts of anger and sullen fuming where she acts out or acts passive aggressive.
Anxious Child: Ume is extremely shy and anxious. This shows in physical symptoms, such as stuttering, shaking, or being flushed all the time, as well as in other ways. She frequently experiences panic attacks and hates social situations.
Muse: Ume is exceptional at any kind of music, though she is particularly fond of the harp.
Empath: Ume is not only in tune with the emotions of others, she can sometimes literally connect with others via touch. Beyond what the [Empathic Sensor] trait may provide, she can also communicate her emotions when she is touching someone else.
Craftswoman: Ume is an amazing knitter, and is good at most crafts she tries, such as weaving, crochet, etc.
Ume was born to the main house of the Satetsu in Sunagakure. Her family have been important political forces in Sunagakure for generations leading back hundreds of years, and her lineage can even be traced back to the famed Kazekage clan that started the village. Her uncle is the leader of the Satetsu clan and her grandfather was a Kazekage. Her parents hold a prestigious position in Sunagakure and have a lot of sway with both the Daimyo and the military. This is the world Ume was born into. As the only child of her family, she has been raised in a world where it was an expectation that she excel.
Ume was not the sort of person built for the life she was born into, unfortunately for her family. Shy and sensitive seemingly from birth, Ume was never cut out for the high pressure, fast paced life that her family wanted for her. Ume hated being around strangers early on, and preferred comforting tasks such as knitting to training to become a powerful shinobi. Early on, Ume’s anxiety regarding her training to become a leader and a ninja caused her great grief and anxiety, and soon she developed panic attacks around the subject.
Her parents were constantly disappointed in her and were not afraid to show it. The only thing that Ume eventually found solace in that pleased both her and her parents was puppetry. She was able to express her creative outlet while divising a way she could please her parents and fight as little as possible. She managed to graduate the academy, albeit a little bit late, and was finally placed into a team. Her parents had never been more proud, which gives her some motivation going forward, though her future is cloudy for her and she is confused about what she truly wants.
