Age: Late 20s.
Personality: Intelligent, Strategic, Determined, Inquisitive
Strengths: Intelligent, witty, charming, driven, ambitious, rational, I know what I am and am not capable of, loyal, adaptable, ”insanely cultured” (to quote one friend), the perfect conversationalist, I’m a complete INTJ (for those of you who know your Myers-Briggs). I have a wry/morbid sense of humor.
Weaknesses: I have very high standards, aka perfectionist. Some people find me intimidating. I sometimes get so caught up in the “right way to do something” that I can be blinded to other options, because I think mine is the right one. I can be too cautious and must seek out and analyze all my options before I choose one. I can be moody.
Bad Habits: I drink too much coffee (well, my doctor says it's a bad habit to drink too much. ;) I sometimes get lost in my own thoughts at bad times (while driving).
Likes: Travel, books, reading/writing, costuming/cosplay, Japan, Japanese, acquiring knowledge, various cultural pursuits, immortality, coffee, languages, theatre, Chinese opera, karaoke, dancing, good food, intelligent conversation
Dislikes: Stupidity, people who think they’re better than me when they couldn’t possibly be further from the truth, homophobia, insecure people, ignorance, roommates who don't clean up after themselves
Hobbies: Graduate school? Sometimes I feel that it is all I have time for at the moment. Reading, writing, kendo/swordsmanship, karaoke, jewelry making, cosplay
Talents: I speak/read/write five languages. I’m an actor (sing, dance, stage combat). I play three musical instruments. I survived living and teaching in Japan for two years. I excel at academics. I’m a good communicator and problem solver. I consider myself a Renaissance Woman or “Jill of all trades”...if you ask me, Yes, I do most likely have an answer to your question.
Interests: The same as my likes and hobbies.
Favourite character: Light/Kira I've always gone for the baddies. Light is intelligent, ambitious, and focused on his path no matter how misguided he becomes by the end and I respect that on a complex level. I also think that he and I would have some intelligent and engaging conversations about the world and how we perceive it.
Least favourite character: Near. At first, I didn't think anyone could replace L so why was there another trying to take his place? He grew on me after a while because I could start to see that perhaps he was worthy of attempting to catch Kira. Mello's constant "bite a bit of chocolate off the bar whenever he appears" started to grate on me.
Would you use the Death Note?: After much consideration and if I was unaware of the effects on my soul...yes. While I would never consider myself a god...I could find uses for it. I have no tolerance for injustices or for those who break the greater unwritten moral code. I think the book would be even more effective if instead of killing people, you could "teach them a lesson". I wouldn't want to create the world that Kira did where everyone lived in fear. I'd have to say that if I found out about the effects on my soul before using the Death Note that I would not use it at all and make sure it didn't fall into the wrong hands. My soul and the lives of those around me are worth more than that sort of power.
Who would you use it on, and why?: If I did use it? I have no tolerance for rapists, pedophiles, and those who think they can get away with violence and other injustices.
Do you support Kira?: In some ways yes and in others no. His initial intentions were good but he used the ends to justify the means which in turn hurt him, his family and friends, as well as the world.
Anything else you'd like to add?: Please tell me why you chose the character you did. Arigatou~!
