Description (if an NPC) or name of your creator(if a PC):
- Describe your character’s personality
Polite to older people and kind to children. Quiet. Normal. When dealing with her career, she has made grown men cry in the courtroom but makes excellent guacamole. What Yuu lacks in height, she makes up for in presence. She knows as a woman, especially an asian woman, her career path is being watched. She is a no nonsence, by the book lawyer but gives the policemen she works with a wide birth of what’s acceptable. She believes in results, period.

Yuu wears Armani suits by day, gothic lace by night. She is short and looks half her age, to which she uses to her advantage in the courtroom. She is a ruthless and remorseless criminal lawyer and knows the law front and back. She is attractive and knows it.
- What does your character like?
Martinis in every flavor, satin and tall men. Yuu enjoys driving fast and muscle cars. She loves the sea but is scared of boats. Thinks Columbo was the best TV series ever. Science fiction and action movies…the louder and bloodier the better.

Silence, having her back towards a door and the dark. The suffocating feeling of being over powered.

Shiroi Yuukaku is, for the most part, normal. Born abroad, her father was a skilled surgeon and immediately brought his year old daughter and wife to the US for profit and educational opportunities for his only child. Her parents were normal and her up bringing was normal which apparently was odd for other people since most of her friend’s parents were divorced. She has no brothers or sisters and although keeps in touch with her parents, does not go out of her way to visit or speak to her other relatives. In fact, she does not know anymore about them that her parents haven’t already told her. They took no interest in her, so why should she care?
She did very well in school and had many friends. Always going by her nickname, Yuu, she excelled in academics and attended Berkley for her BA in political science where she met her to this day dear friend Danielle Martin. Danielle and Yuu were roommates their last two years there and kept in touch when Yuu chose law and earned her law degree at Stanford. Her friendship with Danielle is dear to her and it is because of this relationship that brings her to Nachton.
Also the murder of her predecessor.
Yuu has taken over the position of Assistant District Attorney of Nachton city. Her reputation for being an agressive prosecutor in Los Angeles preceeded her in Nachton. There have been an incredible amount of hired killings in Nachton and serial killings that leave their victims bloodless. Whispers of vampires is what she heard but takes no stock in superstitious stories. Yuu, although will to follow her gut, prefers taking facts into court.
She came for the thrill of working in a city where corrupt and death mixed in easily with weath and beauty. An old city where the powers that be frown upon her kind, Yuu is looking forward to kicking some stuffy old man ass and checking out a bar her friend Dani had told her about. The House of Pain.
