Ayaka Dunne


An orphan in Fortitude, Ayaka Dunne might have grown up to be a lonely and unremarkable girl if not for two things. Firstly, she was never remotely ordinary or unremarkable, what with the shapeshifting and the way shadows tended to move around her when she wasn't paying attention. More importantly, she met the rats. At first they mistook her for a mystery and tried to fight her in an epic fashion. But, Ayaka, with all the dignity of a 7 year old simply insisted that she had to be a noble knight because monsters were all icky and stuff. The rats of fortitude, unable to defeat a 7 year old's tantrum as they might a monster had no choice but to give in. She made them teach her the secrets of ratdom and take her hunting across the far roofs. Ayaka learned the sword and completed a dozen adventures that earned her status as an honorary rat. It was only when Ayaka reached the age of fourteen and noticed strange things changing about her body, like the fact that she could grow shorter or taller on a whim, or eat anything at all without worrying, that Ayaka grew nervous.

Proclaiming that she'd unknowingly misled all the rats she called friends (They all just assumed she knew) Ayaka departed on a 'quest of self-discovery' and promptly signed up on a ship going out of Town, because clearly sitting aboard a ship to brood dramatically would be far more appropriate than hanging around in Fortitude trying to pretend like she was doing something. Clearly her desires for an awesome adventure she could tell all her friends about and make them so jealous didn't matter in the least.

Almost comically serious and very proud, Ayaka wants to be a knight. She is "serious" about chivalry and approaches it with all the dignity she can muster (not much) . But she believes she's doomed to be a monster. Ayaka is somewhat upset about it beneath the constant fun and curiosity, but the girl just doesn't do angst well. She has some very odd ideas about what being a monster might be and tries to go through with them a bit too much.
