Rea is one of my oldest OCs (seen on the pic to the right and here Another ninja
). I didn't pay much attention to her since her creation, but I'm planning to change that.
Rea is a ninja assassin (a ninja killing mercenary of sorts) who was hired by the Syndicate to kill or capture Yuzu. Having no other experience with nijas other than Seaninjas they expected her to be an expert in underwater combat. She wasn't. She couldn't even swim well so Yuzu had an easy fight with her.
Finding her amusing she decided to capture her and bring her to the seaninja village. The village elders decided to keep her as a prisoner while trying to figure out a way of convincing her to join them. She is strong and brave and has a reputation most wouldn't even believe. Better to have her as a friend they thought. But she is also proud and stubborn so she refused to cooperate.
But she did seem to behave differently when Yuzu was around while Yuzu was of course interested in her. The elders decided to send her on small missions with Yuzu and it worked. Turns out she has strong masochistic tendencies and she likes Yuzu's cruel little games. She of course denies it but it's hard to lie to someone if that someone can read your mind.
Since then she is in a love/hate relationship with Yuzu. Frenemies. She is only allowed out of her cell when Yuzu brings her along, and only while wearing heavy shackles to keep her from reaching the surface. She is not allowed to go to land and never to see the sky until she joins them. This way she can't get away too far from Yuzu who is her main source of air. >:3 Knowing Yuzu she makes sure Rea can enjoy her masochistic tendencies and improve her breathholding skills at the same time...
Serious, diligent, talented, strong, sometimes sarcastic but mostly humorless and proud. She denies it but she's also a masochist which could be the reason that she agreed to follow Yuzu. She occasionally makes attempts to escape, but she's not trying too hard. She's also a bad swimmer which would make her escape from the bottom of the ocean especially difficult...
I hope you like her!
I'm planning to show more of ther in the near future.
