Think I'm Cute?
Race: Human, the basic kind (American-Chinese)
Name: Maomi Shuochang
Age: 23, born February 23rd, 1993 (Pisces)
Height & Weight: 5'3" & 125 lbs.
The Important Stuff: Shoulder length wavy red hair, sometimes worn with a fishtail braid extension, Shuochang gets her emerald eyes and ginger locks from her absent father. She smells of the kind of perfume girls think guys like, but actually just smells bad, and loves the strong expensive brands. She looks like she might be the shy type, which is something she tries to hide. She’s got a cute smile and blushing really shows on her freckled face. Her face is young, but most people still guess her age accurately. Her voice is similar to that of a teenage girl, still immature and highly pitched, and sometimes annoys others, and is probably the first thing she'd want to change about herself.
Her physique is incredibly average, although she insists that she has a great ass. She has a few subtle tattoos which include; an infinity sign on her inner lower lip, a dream catcher at the base of her neck, Orion on her right ribs, an arrow entwined with daisies along her left forearm, and a paw print behind her right ear. Small spacers, double nose, belly button, nipples are all pierced with small red rings, except for her white tapered quarter inch spacers. She likes wearing baggy sweaters, crop-tops, yoga pants, uggs, leggings, high-waisted shorts, infinity scarves. She does own more dresses than normal of various cuts due to how good she looks in them. Most of her wardrobe would be found on the majority of high school and college girls. Her accessories include a pendant with the hanzi for pride and compassion, and her prescription glasses, which she more often than not, forgets to wear. She uses them more as a fashion statement than as a reading aid.
She is fluent in English and Cantonese, with a functional level of Thai under her belt as well.
Spiritual Description: A balanced mix of pure white and red, it floats around her in bubbles, not having much of a presence or substance. They are scented like impatiens and balsam. Even if she exerts pressure, it does not become much more dense, instead having the bubbles become more numerous and the scent strengthen.
"If you can't handle me at my worst, you don't deserve me at my best"
On the outside, Shuochang is very open-minded, and is of the opinion that she doesn't "judge" people. She even believes this to be how she truly feels about people in general. However, and unhealthy mix of pessimism, abut those she deems below her, and naivety, about those she deems respectable, in her subconscious makes her a terrible judge in character. Her own petty values only cement this, seeing qualities like wealth, beauty, and power as positive traits in people, while seeing empathy and generosity as weakness. She really is just too stupid to know when she is being used.
Socially, she is very convivial, and seen as a positive, albeit shallow person. Prone to being easily embarrassed, her gregarious nature makes her easy to get along with despite often being insincere with her remarks, especially compliments, which sometimes leads to her putting her foot in her mouth. Her uncensored behavior is irreverent, and often rears its ugly head in serious situations; a dead baby joke in front of a mourning mother wouldn't be seen as crossing the line to her.
Looks are everything to her, the result her hidden lack of confidence. Being diffident, she is the foremost giver of fucks when it comes to how others see her. Her vain nature also extends to others, one's appearance often determining whether she likes them or not. Although not dripping in sex, at the ripe age of 22 she is promiscuous, always having been sexually empowered since tossing out her V-card at 13.
“Look, I’m not that complicated. I love a good house party, we should be pong partners! I’m 420 friendly, so don’t not share if you’re gonna blaze. Do you have insta or twitter, because you should follow me! (@_thatwhitebitch) I totally LOVE cats, they’re so adorable, and they love me back. My selfie game is on fleek, just like my eyebrows. I could eat Nutella and drink PSLs for the rest of my life, but that doesn’t mean I’m not healthy. I eat kale, like every other day, and squats are a must! Donkey burgers are my go to cheat food, because they are the best kind of sandwich. I’m really obsessed with Pretty Little Liars, it’s sooooo good, and house music, y’know, the stuff they play at festivals? Totally my jam.”
Totally fake laugh and nervous glance around the Starbucks.
"I fucking hate doing dishes, 99% of the time I just leave them so long that my room mates have to do them. One time they actually tried to make me use disposables once lol. And I don’t get old people. They’re always so mean, and never have a clue about what real life is like. I also never want to have to play a gig in a middle of nowhere town again, I hate those places. Also nobody should ever see me without makeup. I want to be famous and rich, simple right? I’d love to run my own clothing store that I can come back to after touring. And of course I want to make and perform my music, it lets me get around and meet people! A full-length is the next big step, and I'm desperate to record with my idol, Coco Lee. This should stay between friends but, you know the creepies from Hueco Mundo? I think they're super cool, I've kinda wanted to have conversations with them for years now, but PG would have never allowed that.”
Alignment: Chaotic Neutral. There’s only one person Shuochang needs to worry about, and that’s herself. There are lines to what she’ll do to get what she wants, but they have yet to be found.
Why I'm Not Your Basic Bitch
Power: Chuushin Tienji Henkan. (中心 텐지 変換)
Shuochang can create beasts of her design though converting regular energy into spiritual potential. It uses energy for a thermal reaction, but does not protect her from the reaction or type of energy that she is converting. Typically used to absorb thermal capacity of her surroundings, thus instantaneously dropping the temperate. Can use other forms of energy, such as kinetic, electrical, chemical, etc. but thermal is the most effective conversion. These beings can function and remain until physically destroyed, but if another is created, the previous dissipates into embers and ash. An equal amount of matter is required to convert and create her beasts.
The actual ritual consists of the diagram and reaction. The reaction itself is near instantaneous and Shuochang can initiate the conversion at will. But completing the diagram takes time, properly depicting it to ensure she won’t create a giant pile of charred nothing. As she gains experience, her familiarity with each allows her to complete the diagram faster with the same degree of accuracy.
Creatures created have varying cognitive levels, sorted into non-intelligent (NI), semi-intelliegent (SI), and fully aware (FA). Non-intelligent is that of insects, and function in a singular mindset and cannot be controlled, they are attracted to large thermal signatures, they do not attack unless threatened. Semi-intelligent are like trained beasts, and can understand simple and pre-determined commands. Fully aware beings are those that are self-sufficient with personalities and can cooperate with Shuochang and act of their own accord.
Basic- swarm of Trilsepia. Iranik. 5-minute ritual
Intermediate- Kagajibara. Nonarp. 4 Iranik. 1-minute ritual
Advanced- On the run ritual. 2 Kagajibara. Caloralus.
Master- 2 Esobed. Nayn. Self-contained spiritual ritual.
GM- 3 Caloralus.
Trilsepiad (NI)- Insectoid ranging from 1-3 feet long, and half as wide, very flat. They resemble flying bone manta rays, their ribs fluttering as wings. Its head is eyeless and is shaped like a crescent arrow, and use this to ram prey. They are always darkly shaded. They act as a hive, never separating from each other unless physically forced to.
Iranik (FA)- A bare top half of a beautiful woman connects with the lower half of a swan, standing almost 7 feet tall. Although incapable of flight, they are very agile. They fight free handed and often chide each other in a language of their own. Each is differently hued with bright colors.
Kagajibara (SI)- A lumbering 14 foot humanoid mass of vegetation and amber. The tree man looks like a voodoo doll, with some parts, namely head and hands, glistening with amber-like residue, which glows a soft orange. He uses his hands to slam and crush enemies.
Nonape (FA)- A primate, possibly a macaque or gibbon, with deer legs is the sum of this satirical personality. Its fur is tinged green and pink, creating a very exotic color scheme for the already alien being. It has exceptional hearing and is quite agile despite the golden helm that sits atop its head. It falls short of six feet tall, and carries a four foot rod to fight with.
Caloralus (NI)- A fiery temperament accompanies this 20 foot tall mantis-like insectoid. Although its head and body only rise to 16 feet, two huge spine lined front arms keep it held up to 20, while two smaller ones keep it standing while it uses them to swing, stomp, and claw at prey, also making huge leaps when needed. A small sac that glows hangs beneath its body between its two back legs, it is extremely sensitive and furthers its aggression if injured. Its horned head is supported by an elongated neck that likes to snap at anything that comes too close to it.
Esobe (SI)- A mix between elephants and giraffes, these 17 foot tall and 12 foot long blind dinosaurs are fairly docile until encouragement is provided. They have thick murky leathery skin that covers all their long necks, four tree trunk legs, and most of their torso and tail. Their backs are covered in a harder and thicker layer of skin, while their underbellies are rather exposed. They have spotted flappy ears that can be used for echolocation when frilled like that of a Chlamydosaurus. Their mouth is rimmed with rather sharp teeth, although they prefer trampling targets. That top of their heads are covered by a thick, somewhat soft, mucus that glows red and is extra sensitive.
Nayn (SI)- A draconic rhinoceros fits the form of the Nayn. It is a slightly larger rhino with scaled plates instead of leather, colored green with hints of yellow. It has a yellowish mane and lion’s tail, with a few large horns flowing with the mane, its face has speckles of other colors on it as well. Its legs are physiologically like that of a predatory cat, but are covered the same way the rest of its body is. It used its fanged maw and claws to rend its targets, sometimes going on its hind legs like that of a bear.

History: Born out of wedlock in Daytona Beach Florida, February 25th 1993, Maomi Shuochang was quickly brought back to Baoding, China to live with her mother and her family. Growing up, she loved pop culture and the American way of life despite her Chinese upbringing. She fit in well with others in her school, but that changed once her power developed with puberty. As a young girl she listened to Chinese pop sensation Coco Lee nonstop, and still sees her as an idol as an adult.
At age 12, while feeling sick in the girl’s washroom, she began to develop a really bad headache, and was quick to run some hot water to wash her face with. But as her hands touched the very hot water, a split second reaction occurred, and a blink later a smoldering pile of ash had filled the sink, the running water now solid ice, and the entire room had dropped to well below zero. In surprise she passed out and was found later with hypothermia, not surprising considering she had only been wearing the school uniform. The water in the other sinks and toilets had also frozen, the heat drawn from both air and water in the room.
After learning the cause and results of her power, she quickly developed a superiority complex, believing herself better than her class mates and those without powers. Although still sociable, she only hung out with the most popular of the kids, and soon lost interest in school. The tween felt bittersweet about her newfound abilities. On one hand, it made her unique amongst the kids her age, another reason she could justify putting herself above them. On the other hand, it removed her from the social group she wanted to have that effect on. She needed to be monitored, especially since puberty had made her incapable of having full control over it every day. Her mother had agreed to remove her from standard education for everyone’s safety.
By 16, she gained her families approval to join Peach Garden, a group she believed worthy of her time and filled with people that weren’t beneath her. By then she had her powers well under control, despite puberty still running rampant within her, and that's all her parents had wanted, in addition to her needing to complete her secondary education in tandem if she wanted to join. Peach Garden was a mercenary group of spiritualists that specialized in fighting Hollows, with minor ties with some Quincy Houses. At this age she also began to take an interest in hip hop, sometimes writing her own jingles and taking part in awkward performances that teenagers often put on. Dating became another focus of hers: she was well liked (especially by the boys). Her time with Peach Garden would total four years, and although it allowed her to refine her power, it also disappointed her. Self directed education bored her, as did the company around her. They helped people, protected them, and fought Hollows that plagued Karakura town and others around the world. She didn’t even dislike the Hollows, they actually fascinated her, more so than both the haughty Shinigami whose society she was forced to learn about, and the Quincy, who she found terribly…boring. She liked the other humans better, she could relate to them much better. She would attend a mediocre American college instead, partying her time away.
A year and a half after leaving the mercenary band, Karakura town is ruined in calamity, and efforts from every spiritually active being are made to deal with the mess and very few survivors. The self-centered girl wanted nothing to do with it, preferring the safety distance affords her, but is persuaded by current members of Peach Garden to come as back up. She reluctantly comes, and hates her time there, living without luxury, being around the suffering for months made her resent coming, and her fighting remnant Hollows was half-hearted. These months also consisted of her only exposure to Shinigami, as we worked alongside them, although she was more social than actually productive. She found that she preferred members of the Second Division the best, while disliking members of the First and Fourth the most.
After finally returning home and leaving the Earth-based group behind for good, and not on very good terms, she focused on music instead of returning to college. She began rapping, recording EPs, and playing any show she could, sometimes even going on small tours with a few performances lined up. But along with the minor success she began taking recreational drugs and going through a few bad relationships, brought on by her poor judgement of character and naivety. After attaining her first viral hit and gaining a small reputation, she moved to Bangkok, feeling the Southern scene in Thailand could help her music. Since, she has taken lessons in Muay Thai after a particularly bad incident with a creep on stage. Although she’s not the strongest or best at it, she has surprisingly kept serious about it. Her career still hasn’t taken of yet, but she continues to pursue her dreams in music while looking for opportunities to involve herself in Hueco Mundo.
Melody Black- Childhood friend, met at a Chinese opening of The Lion King, recently reconnected over awakening of Mels spiritual powers. Team Disney Princesses!
Mel was a bit of a weirdo when we were young, but it’s pretty cool that she has powers like me. I should probably go see how she’s doing some time.
Jian Oreachi- Idolized heart throb. Hopeful trophy boyfriend.
The perfect man, I cannot wait to fucking meet him. Ugh, he better be single or some bitch is gonna get it.
Freyleif J- Confronted her in KKT about her fan-girling over Jian Oreachi, jealous that she actually knows him personally.
Some random girl that thought she actually had a chance with Jian lol. She better hope I never run into her again or I might have to let her know that men don’t like girls that still wear training bras.
Peach Garden-Mismatched mercenary band of human variants that take on jobs around the globe. Currently estranged from them.
I mean it was fun working with them for a while, but waaaaay too many rules for a girl like me. Besides, killing Hollows got old quick, and I’m much happier working on my music now.
Scurrying off stage, the small rapper grabbed the first energy drink she saw, a Rockstar, and chugged. She had just finished a good set; the crowd, almost 100 in size, had been the good kind of noisy, the lighting wasn't horrendous, and she hadn't fucked up any of her songs. Although the venue wasn't to her taste, she would call the night a success.
"Oh my god, how bitching was that?" She screamed to her DJ, who was just some college guy with a laptop really. They half-hugged, he agreed of course, people so rarely disagreed with her, how could they? Their momentum continued as they made their way out of a side door for a smoke. Two bong hits had kept her bubbly to perform, now she felt like some nicotine, not that she ever smoked by herself, ever the social butterfly. The alley was well lit, the night warm enough for any young girls inner skank to show, and a few crowds were chilling outside, presumably for smoke breaks.
Fucking losers. she griped, taking offense that they probably hadn't been inside watching her onstage.
Pulling out her trusty zippo, she bummed a cigarette of her DJ, and watched other stream outside to escape the hotbox inside. She peeked to the end of her alley, checking that nobody was fucking around with her motorcycle. People began recognizing her as the cutie that just finished, and some started asking for pictures, and others, for signatures. She gladly agreed, and the affair went on for a couple more cigarettes. Then, once one guys hand was a little too comfortable on her boob, she thanked the crowd and scurried off again back inside for a drink. She was dehydrated and the Rockstar hadn't done much to fix her thirst, still glistening with sweat and slightly out of breath from giving it her all.
Flagging down a bartender, she ordered a Cosmo, and slid her phone out from her pocket. It was hardly late, and other than a fuckboy messaging her with, surprise surprise, a dick pic, nobody had texted her. Placing the iPhone down, she looked around the club. The stage was still in transition to the next act, people were still dancing to whatever was on the speakers, probably a T-Swift remix, and her friends were still not to be found. Once her drink arrived, it met her standards as far as bar drinks went, and went to pay for it, but cash was quickly slid by her before she could reach into her purse.
And you better believe it was Hermes.
She turned, surprised yet grateful for the gesture. A stranger, a 7/10 for a guy, stood smirking behind her, dressed a bit better than this club deserved. Before she could thank him, he said something made her realize she probably should've recognized him.
"That performance was absolutely spiritual."
