Concept and Details
List any fears, history elements, or other details that are crucial to the character and/or have been referenced in gameplay:

Sayaka Corro no Ariake's hatred of the Kagen has been a miasma that has loomed large over Minato's life for as long as she can remember. She's too young to remember Sayaka's attempts to mold her uncle Haneul into a weapon for use against the wolf clan, but Minato's childhood and adolescence has been heavily colored by Sayaka's desire to see the clan of Emiko no Kagen destroyed. Despite this, Minato feels no particular way about the Kagen; she mostly wishes they'd stop existing so she could live her own life, but isn't willing to make them stop existing on her own.

Born in the Ariake capital of Inaba, Minato has always been rather on the outside looking in. She considers herself a member of the Corro family before she considers herself an Ariake, and doesn't feel particularly one way or the other about the traditions that her family loves so deeply. She's very curious about the world outside of Tacea, but her recent trauma in the sinking of Kaesong has left her in a deep depression that limits her ability to interact with this new and interesting world in which she finds herself. Minato suffers from horrible nightmares of her mother and beloved aunts dying, though she wasn't there to see what happened; she copes with her nightmares through alcohol. (Attempts to dabble in drugs were firmly squashed by her aunt Ji Yoon.)

She is currently a Ward with Toyani no Kagen's Court at Lesser Caecian in Dena Nehele. Her burgeoning problem with alcohol was easing until she was moved to Blackwater; she goes to great pains to conceal her dependence on the drink to ease her emotional turmoil in the face of her mother's lifetime enemies. She feels she should hate the Kagen clan, but doesn't. Minato feels very alone in the world, and abandoned by her family.

  • Counterculture - Minato finds tradition stifling and is always looking for new and exciting things
  • Music - Minato learned how to play the guitar from her grandfather in her early teens and often plays music instead of meditating.
  • Booze - She has a problem.

  • Ordinariness - The staid practice of tradition simply because it is tradition is abhorrent to Minato.
  • Sailing - She gets terribly seasick. She likes to fish, though.
  • Lesser Caecian - It's less urban than she prefers her setting to be. (She doesn't dislike the Court there, just the physical location.)

  • Losing her remaining family - Minato lives with this fear every day: that her grandfather and aunt will leave her forever with strangers, and she will be forgotten and alone.
  • Mutilation - Minato saw plenty of Hanwa lacking limbs and Jewels in the aftermath of the volcanoes, and has a deep-seated horror of losing her limbs.
  • That her mother survived the volcano - Minato didn't see Sayaka die. It's possible that Sayaka is alive, just like Minato's aunt Hae Jun, who Minato also thought was dead. She is terrified that if Sayaka survived, Minato will be disowned.
