Voleros application: Lifen by Milanopiano Voleros application: Lifen by Milanopiano
My character for :iconvoleros-saga:.

Name: Zhu Lifen

Age: 18

Gender: Female

Species: Kitsune

Job: Artisan (dancer/performer)

Talents:

- Dancing:
Dancing has always been the passion of Lifen. Her talent allowed her to make a living of her beautifull dancing capabilities. She uses her fan to make it even more appealing.

- Singing:
Besides dancing, Lefin has a beautifull voice. She likes to sing in her free time and she sometimes sings on stage, but only on rare occasions.

- Martial arts:
Lefin's father was a warrior who was specialized in martial arts. As the youngest child, Lefin was forced to learn the ways of self defense for her own safety. Because of her physical capabillities, it became clear that the art came natural to her. Now she uses her knowledge of martial arts to complement her dancing style.


Personality:
Lefin is quite the cool and smart one. Rarely angry, she always uses her calm and clear way of thinking to her advantage in difficult situations.
She is also really charismatic, making friends everywhere she goes. Still, she is one that wouldn't give away her secrets until she fully trusts someone.

She is great in estimating peoples personalities and thoughts.

She would rather avoid a conflict than confront it, often thinking up a scheme in order to avoid it. But she is also the person that wouldn't run away if push comes to shove.

Concerning her affectionate side. She thinks men are dumb and she is a real feminist in that matter. She also doesn't hesitate to seduce unsuspecting men and then using them to buy her clothes and such. Still, even Lifen cannot resist the hotness of shounen-ai.

History:
Being born in a big family of warriors in Garnet city, she was raised in her fathers dojo, so to speak. Having 5 older siblings, she had a hard time during her childhood. Never getting much attention, she filled up her time on her own. She would go into the city to watch local dancers perform. Later, when she was in the dojo, she would rehearse the dances she had seen that day. By doing so she eventually danced like a professional. Still, she couldn't avoid to have to train kungfu and wushu by her father. Though she had the most talent of all her siblings, she would not be able to succeed her father, because she was the youngest.
She never had that ambition anyways.
The only one that really loved and gave her attention was Lifen's grandmother.

When Lifen turned 17 she announced to her family she would leave garnet city to go and travel throughout Risohli. Ofcourse her parents disagreed, but a year later, a month before she turned 18, she left anyways, in the middle of the night. However she didn't leave Garnet city just yet. Before that, she managed to get employed by one of the local dancing groups. Now she dances and travels, making money from dancing, dreaming that she can one day dance for the gods of Voleros.


Extra's: (includes info about her MAGIC)

- Lifen rarely uses magic. She has potential though, having 3 tails and all. The magic she posseses is that of creating illusions. Ofcourse, she was never trained in such things so her magical capabilities are as bad as her cooking... Also, Lifen actually fears magic because of the dangers, so she avoids it completely rather then not using it because of the lack of skill.

- Lifen's gloves are actually gloves that her father gave her. They are a family heirloom. One of the few things she was allowed to inherit.

- The fan she got from her grandmother, who was the only one that knew Lifen loves dancing with a passion. Her Grandmother bought it on a market for a few pennies. It is Lifen's most precious possesion.

- The flower Lifen carries in her hair was the very reason she was named Lifen (meaning fragrent flower). It was the first thing she layed her eyes on when she was born. It stood in a vase next to her mothers bed, where she gave birth. Throughout her life though, she had to replace the flower a few times ofcourse, but she only uses the seeds of the withered flower to grow new ones for in her hair, as if she is still wearing the flower she first lay eyes on.

- She was born with the markings on her head. They are a sign that she is part of the Zhu family.

- The stockings and the collar came with the Gloves. She had them designed by a local tailor. A gift from her mother, because she inhereted the gloves.

- Lifen's Yukata was bought after she left her home. With all the money she made from dancing, she saved alot for something special. She bought it from a traveling merchant who had visited the other countries (He bought it in Alora for a small price in an antique shop). Lifen found it a perfect match for her other clothes.

- The Obi was part of her old kimono which she rarely wears nowadays. The Obi on itself matches with the flower and the fan.
