Appearance[edit | edit source]
Aki is a beautiful, young girl with well-endowed figures with large bust, standing at the height of 5'8 tops with light-green eyes, a long, beautiful blonde hair with hime-cut styles, and has red ribbons adored with three golden bells tied to her sides. Her distinguish feature is her blonde-colored, nine fox tails and matching ears.
Her main attire is the traditional miko outfit and tall geta with white tabi.

She also wears mix of black and blue pantyhose, and a silver-white robes wrapped underneath her hip guards, all of which are clad with gold lacing along with her clothing and clips.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Aki is shown to share both of her parent's personalities plus her own. First, she possess the same humbleness and polite behavior as her mother and also dedicated leader to her people. However, she also possess her father's traits where she has a slight, teasing and flirtatious side, which sometime scolded by her mother. She's also kind, loving older sister to her younger sister and play with her sometime to dote on her.
Other than her parent's traits, she is a very studious, diligent, and kind individual who cares for the welfare of others, and can often be soft-spoken since she prefers to talk in peace and resort to lethal force last. She's also very approachable and sociable since she would like to call by her first name as it helps to know people better. According to Nicholas, she's the epitome of "Yamato Nadeshiko" or ideal, Japanese wife.
She likes to see the good in others, rather that judge them by outward appearances, hence her non-hostile nature towards the Varia Criminale despite the fact that they're the most wanted criminals in both worlds.
After she joined the Varia Criminale, she even acts as something of a counselor for them whenever they have problems of their own, as if it feels like being look after by kind, gentle mother or ideal wife as Nicholas noted as he too seeks the counseling sometimes.
