- [ COMPUTER SAVVY ] Vira knows her way around a computer, inside, outside, software, and hardware. She can take one apart and put it back together fairly quickly, and can remove pretty much any virus out there on your computer. Or, you know, add one.
- [ ADEPT HACKER ] That being said, Vira’s pretty skillful in the means of hacking into protected servers and other such malicious intents. She’s not nearly as good as it as she claims to be, however, and is prone to making mistakes when attempting to crack into higher level security.
- [ ALL OF THE LUCK ] Vira almost always rolls what she wants in a dice roll or a coin flip, but the luck doesn’t really extend much further than that. Still, it provides her a nice morale boost, and playing tricks on people with this is also pretty fun.
- [ BATTER WITCH ] Vira can fry up the perfect stack of pancakes. You won't believe these things, man.
- [ FRAIL AS A SPIDER ] While she has been in a few fights during her life, Vira always won by either running away or by using dirty tricks. She isn't exactly a prime example of human strength, being mostly skin and bones, and is quite prone to breaking when hit too hard.
- [ DISRESPECTFUL ] Vira doesn't respect anybody but herself, and her tone of voice really shows it. This more than often gets her into trouble with others.
- [ CHESSMASTER ] Despite being a self-proclaimed "master of strategy", Vira is hilariously bad at chess. She doesn't even seem to remember what most of the pieces do, which is often played to comic relief when explaining plans with such analogies.
It wouldn’t be very easy for somebody to describe Vira Kumo very pleasantly, but the narrator will take a shot at it anyways. Remember high school? Remember that snooty know it all girl that treated everything as a competition? Vira is essentially that girl, but on a whole new level. A product of a rich family that spoiled her and DNA that is simply downright rotten, describing this girl in one word, one simple phrase, it would be insufferable. But she won’t have that. There’s soooooooo much more to her than that!
Vira’s loyalties are unknown. She doesn’t discuss them with others, ever, choosing to do her own thing and choose her own personal side. She schemes alone, possibly to a few close friends if any could actually stand her for more than a few minutes, and always seems to be plotting about something or another. While she doesn’t allow people in hers, the teenager loves to get into other people’s business, meddling into their affairs as much as humanly possible. Who’s business? Everybody’s, that is, the more lives she is currently messing with the more content about herself she feels. It’s a messed up form of pleasure, if you will.
Personally, Vira doesn’t hold herself in high regard. She’s self-conscience about her looks and often thinks that others don’t like her as much as they should. Or even worse, hate her enough. Getting no response out of a person at all discerns her and irks her in the highest degree. She likes to be noticed, in fact, she basically feeds off of it. Well that, and other people’s suffering, which we’ll get to soon enough. Does she ever just sit down and talk about her feelings? No, that’s none of their business; they’ll never know how big her problems are!
Other people’s suffering, right. Vira is basically a bully in every definition of the term. If she sees a “weakness” in another, she won’t hesitate to poke fun at it. Her personal favorites are sensitive subjects, such as handicaps and lost loved ones, or even trivial things, such as short height or weight. It’s safe to say that this overlying quality to “speak her mind” is the thing that makes her the most insufferable. That, and her overwhelming desire to be the best at literally everything, and to go as far to claim she is already the master of that particular area, and even cheat to get there. Nobody understands!
If somebody were to actually sit down with this girl and get something pleasant out of her, they would find out a number of things. First off, they would find out that Vira is a huge video game nut, if not apparent by the many references she makes to classic titles such as Earthbound and The Legend of Zelda. Second, they may find that she has an interest in games of chance and fortune telling, holding in interest in tarot cards and magic eight balls. Third, they would find out that she has a fascination with arachnids for whatever reason, determining them to be her favorite “animal”. Fourth, if they played their cards right, they would find out that she can certainly make a powerful ally, and a dangerous enemy.
For her age and gender, at least, Vira is fairly tall and slender. Her body is straight and without many noticeable curves, something she is fairly self-conscience about, but claims otherwise. Living a fairly active lifestyle of messing around in other people’s business, her muscles are small but toned, allowing her to run for a decent amount of time before needing to catch her breath. She claims to of been the fastest on the track team, but this is pretty much just a fabrication because she was average at best. The teenager’s hair is long and reaches the center of her back, often straightened, but it seems to naturally flip and curl all over the place anyway. She has a habit of flipping her hair when making a point, giving her condescending nature an extra infuriating bonus.
Kumo’s eyes look down upon you with dull and damaged irises, indeterminable in color, either being a hazel or grey, and are hidden behind a pair of prescription eyewear. She is actually blind in her left eye due to a childhood accident on top of this impairment. Her smile is cunning and almost always present on her face as she spills out insults and deceits, making one want to punch her in the face just that much more. Not to mention her speech, this is purposely drawn out and cocky, extending words for emphasiiiiiiiiis.
Vira doesn’t vary her fashion sense too much from day to day. Typically, this is composed of a printed tee shirt chosen from her large assortment of grim designs, a pair of fairly worn jeans, and a jacket or light shirt to wear over the whole deal. Lately, she’s been taking to leather jackets, but you never know, seasons change. Oh, not to mention that while she has an assortment of footwear, they are all one color: bright hot rod red. For whatever reason, Vira finds herself attracted to this color, considering it appealing and “ultra sick”.
Vira will tell you that she had a childhood full of hardships and obstacles that she had to climb over. This is partially true, but also because she caused most of her own hardships when she could’ve had it really easy. As a child, she was fortunate enough to be born to a pair of parents, wealthy ones at that. Very wealthy. She also had the opportunity to go to a high end trade school at a young age, never having to deal with the cons of public education. It would perhaps be best to start at the beginning.
One warm November 10th, a Japanese girl was born in a high end hospital. Her parents were a couple of recently married business people, consuming nearly all of their time at their jobs, but still somehow maintaining an active home life. This was typical of the culture, always working, always busy, always doing something. Only to rest when bedtime came, as any other time, this was seen as a waste of time. Good thing they were an active couple, because their baby sure was a handful.
From a very young age Vira was shown to be just as restless as her parents. She would often cry, scream, and toss and turn all night for whatever reason, which by extension, kept her mother and father awake as well. They started to struggle at their jobs, but luckily, it was all over when the young girl came of age. She showed hope, able to read at the age of five and soon speaking clearly by the age of seven. Vira was sent to a trade school at a very young age, around twelve years old, beginning to learn basic computer programming and other skills.
Her nastier tendencies first shined in her schooling times. She was quick to join the track team and weasel her way to the spot of team captain, pretty much just so she could boss the other girls around. She wasn’t the fastest, even, but that never stopped her from bragging. She treated schoolwork as a competition, studying relentlessly and cheating to achieve perfect grades. She was even voted queen at three school events through underhanded bribes and flirtation. After school, she was even less nice, often bullying and fighting kids smaller than her, beating them up and taking their money, even though she already had plenty enough from her weekly allowance.
And so this continued up until graduation day, an early date, as she was done with this nonsense by the age of seventeen. Vira first learned how to drive after school, never needing the skill beforehand, and really wanting to test out the sweet ride her father just bought her. It was pretty much immediately wrecked. However, being the spoiled brat she was, it was soon replaced after some begging to her father by an even newer model. Okay, this story is a little off track and kinda silly, so we’ll move on.
Eighteen years old and still never worked an honest day in her life. What was there to do now? Oh right, waste away time frivolously. The young Kumo took up a few hobbies during this period, which included competitive video gaming, intense table-top roleplaying, and raising her pet tarantula, Herman. And like everything else in her life, she took all of these things extremely seriously. She would spend hours figuring out ways to cheat games or create overpowered game breaking builds; create ridiculously ridiculous roleplaying characters, and entering her spider into competitions. It of course, won all of the awards. ALL OF THEM.
One day this teenager happened upon some weak looking loser after a round of tabletop. This weak loser was in fact the player behind that heroic beast master that kicked the living hell out of her elite pirate, who was beyond broken. So she did what anybody would’ve done. Approached him, held out a hand, and said congratulations on the victory. As soon as the handshake was made, she gripped his hand and pulled him to the ground, literally kicking and stomping the crap out of him then proceeding to take his wallet and some weird little black Tamigatchi thingy. Casually leaving the scene of the crime, she fiddled around with the device, which turned out to not be a virtual pet at all. It was unresponsive to her advances, but would occasionally light up and display unreadable messages.
It was annoying if anything.
- [ MAGIC 8 BALL ] A magic eight ball. It’s kind of a piece of crap and requires a bit of shaking to see the result.
- [ DOUBLE SIDED COIN ] A double sided coin. Both sides are heads, so she always wins.
- [ LOADED DICE ] An eight sided loaded pair of dice. They usually land on the desired result.
- [ CHANGE OF CLOTHES ] Never know when things are gonna get messy!
- [ GAME BOY COLOR ] Complete with a couple of choice classics.
A simple thing, Vira’s Digivice is all one color: black. The sides are so as is the body and the buttons. The screen lights up with a green backdrop, giving it a bit of a digital retro feel when used. Like most things, the Tamer considers her Digivice to be somehow superior to everyone else’s. It features no functions outside of the basic ones.
