Name: Anya Markov Age: 15 years old Home Country: Russia Personality: Quirky, Stubborn, Optimistic and Impulsive Likes: Food, Children's Games, Singing, Cuddling with people and animals Dislikes: Darkness, Long periods of silence, Formal settings, Conflict, Being "babied," Humid weather Innocence and Type: Bella Voce (Equipment) Bio:
Anya was born mute, and as such, she felt as though she wasn't given enough attention because she wasn't outspoken. To compensate, she developed a curious nature and is a habitually rebellious child. Anything her parents told her was treated as the opposite. She was a rather clumsy child starting out this little rebellion, but she gradually developed a sort of drunken grace and elegance to her madness, causing her parents to have to keep a very close eye on her at all times. They gave her a necklace with a bell as its center piece, so whenever she moves around it would jingle and act as her voice. Although she knew it was for her protection, she really loved the present. It made a pretty sound, and having it act as her voice was quite an honor in her eyes. Since her father worked for the military, he traveled abroad often and would send his wife and daughter letters of his travels. They kept a steady chain of replies going until one day, Anya's mother was caught in an akuma's rampage. She was to be caught as well, but Allen and the others came to her rescue (albeit by chance). Since they saw her as a lead to where Innocence could be located and couldn't leave her to live on her own, they let Anya come back with them to HQ. Lo and behold, she was the owner to the Ghost of Mater's Innocence Allen and Kanda had retrieved a while before. With the help of Komui and the Science Department, they developed a headset known as Bella Voce, which housed the Innocence that helped Anya to speak. She couldn't talk if the headset was detached from her, so she was very careful to take care of it. It was considered a very powerful Innocence, as anything she could say could become a weapon (i.e. "BOOM!" ), but it was also considered a huge weakness because it was easy to detach her from the Innocence. Because of this, Komui made the decision of keeping Anya in HQ until she fully mastered the English language and synced up with her Innocence enough to hopefully become a Crystal-type. It took a couple of years, but eventually she reached that potential and is able to leave on missions with the rest of her friends (though they preferred she stay behind since she was such an... enthusiastic person).
Random Fun Facts: -She has quite a crush on Allen Walker, but she's too scared to tell him, so instead she bothers Lavi with her lovey dovey woes. -Lavi finds her feelings for Allen to be funny and likes to tease Anya about those feelings, pretending to go tell her 'secret' to the boy himself. -Anya hates wearing gloves despite her hands always being freezing cold all the time. However, she loves the feeling of something warming her hands, but only if it last small periods of time. Otherwise it's just uncomfortable. -Because of this, holding hands is one of her favorite things to do. -Anya loves to sing to people to help them fall asleep. -Sometimes when she's bored she'll find a mirror and a marker and play connect the dots with her freckles. -Or she'll find Lavi and he'll do it for her. -She hardly ever cries without a smile on her face, as she still can't bring herself to understand the concept of sadness. She refuses to acknowledge such a thing. -However, when she still doubts herself and easily gets wrapped up in what others think of her.

Amelia grew up with a strict mother and an intimidating father. She also had a brother who developed a serious stage of cancer, and he was pretty much bound to a wheelchair as he attended school. Her mother is very hard on her, not only because she is the older child, but because Amelia is very rebellious and hyper (like her mom when she was younger). Amelia and her mom don't get along because of their major personality clashes, so her mom refuses to speak to her in English and instead speaks in Mandarin. Amelia can understand most of what she says, but she doesn't know enough to talk back. Because of these barriers, Amelia tends to be quiet in home environments, even when in other people's homes. If she ever wants to talk at home, she'll hang out with her brother or talk to her father, usually in Russian (his native language). In school, Amelia is too hyper and full of random thoughts to focus, so she tends to either skip or forget to do her work when she does attend class. People fear her because of her spontaneous attitude and the fact that she could snap at anything that rubs her the wrong way. The main reason they fear her though is because she gets very defensive over her brother and his condition. This makes Evan, her brother, angry because it affects how people see him and has scared away quite a few friends of his. One day, he finally snaps and expresses the deep hatred he had for Amelia, and refused to speak to her after that. He died about a month after this silence. At exactly one year after Evan's death, Amelia (now at age 17) awakens her powers as the Ace of Hearts. This is a rather exclusive rank to the Izbrannika** forces and she carries it with both great pride and fear. While training as an Izbrannika (second outfit is her training uniform), she learns that she can sometimes make contact with the world of the dead. Since then, she's had the fear that one day she may have to face her brother again, this time with powers resulting from her behavior towards people.
** Izbrannika are typically people chosen from the Real World by the King and Queen to become their supernatural soldiers. They fight off demons that the King and Queen of the Dead World may create with their soldiers, and they also keep the balance between life and death. They can both cause and prevent deaths from happening, depending on what the dimensions call for. More info comes at a much much later time. c:
Weapon of choice: Aside from being able to manipulate the "heart's desires," Amelia wields her shadow much like the rest of the Aces. Her shadow allows her to handle blades and occasionally chainlike weapons. Her favorites are clawlike extensions of her nails and a rather intricately designed scythe. If she's too lazy to summon, she'll just fight in hand-to-hand combat. The chain on the scythe is removable/optional, depending on the situation. The chain can also vary in length.

Daigoro participated in several drill teams, such as the Honor Guard; requiring him to perform various movements with sabres, pole arms, flags, and rifles. However, Daigoro was honorably discharged from his military academy by his grandfather so that he could attend school in Japan. But before he moved away he received his performance Sabre and Scabbard as a traditional gift from the academy and a memento from his teammates. (it's quite a touching story really QvQ)

P E R S O N A L I T Y : Influence on Personality! Daigoro's personality traits were a direct result of the years he spent at the military academy. They heavily conditioned him to abide by the core values; to uphold the highest honor, to service others before one's self, and to commit to excellence in all actions. He is a heavily traditional person and uses these morals to conduct his daily lifestyle. Sometimes his grandfather condemns his grandson's new-found logic, but Daigoro dismisses this and holds fast to his knowledge that was taught to him by the military academy.
Limits To Extreme Focus With a strong sense of duty, Daigoro maintains a high work ethic due to the strict and rigorous learning enviornment that his military school instilled and the result of his work reflects this. Usually he places a top priority on his academics, however there are situations where he puts his focus towards other things, and his academic great drops considerably. Daigoro's ability to harness his concentration is the key factor into his school work, but when his priorities change so does his work efforts. He cannot balance himself well enough to perform multiple areas of work and thought. Although he has a high work ethic when he's determined to finish the job, he tends to neglect his other priorities because he can only think about one thing at a time.
Overwork And Stress Daigoro is only human; he has his limitations as well. Sometimes he can work consistently on a job for days, however if he does not take the time to rest properly he will tire out and may even pass out because his body needs to recover. Usually his grandfather tries to advise him on taking breaks, however Daigoro tends to overwork himself past exhaustion because he is always determined to complete the tasks at hand. It's because of his determination that, notably, Daigoro's brain works his body past it's limits and hardly notices that he's tired sometimes (will pass out if not rested).
Disciplined But Quiet Daigoro is extremely disciplined and adopted a quiet temperament with a stoic demeanor. Although he doesn't speak much unless he's spoken to, Daigoro will often communicate politely. Daigoro rarely calls anyone by their first name and prefers using their last name as a sign of respect. He typically doesn't smile but his facial expression shifts when he is placed into uncomfortable situations that make him nervous (for example: asking about his private life, his goals, or other personal questions //an exception is: singing//).
Is Not A Loner! Despite his quiet temperament, he actually enjoys putting himself in a crowded room and surrounding himself with people. They may not take notice of him, but public areas are very comforting for him. Normally he listens to the voices of the people within the general area to feel that he is not alone and morphs the natural sounds around him into white noise. This is in order to suppress the memories of any difficult situation he has experienced during the day. Sometimes it is a defense mechanism when he encounters failure.
Likes To Follow Others(in other words he's like a puppy following its master owo b) In the academy, Daigoro acquired years of leadership training and he has several strong qualifications to become a leader, but he would prefer being a follower. He believes he is able to perform at optimum level when he is given specific directions that someone else gives him rather than acting on his own. Usually this submissive attitude gives people opportunities to take advantage of him, but that doesn't really matter to him. He spent years following orders, listening to people, and being a grunt worker; rarely does he convey his own opinions and thoughts on subjects that DON'T involve working. Daigoro's grandfather takes note of this, and tries to lead his grandson to take a more active role in his life and makes him question the institutions that society has placed upon his grandson. He can see Daigoro's potential, and hopes to properly guide his model behavior.
Stubborn Mindset When Daigoro is working, his unwavering determination makes him very stubborn. Sometimes his goals conflict with the majority and even though he doesn't normally take his own stand on situations, he has a strong mindset to finish his work. Although, Daigoro has yet to cope with many situations where he must make tough decisions like this, ideally he would side with work to protect traditions and values. At his previous school it was typical for all students to behave as such. There is no doubt in Daigoro's mind that, when it comes to work, it is a priority and must be placed higher above one's self.
Terrible Creativity! Unfortunately, he lacks a lot of creativity. Daigoro is usually unable to use his best judgment because of his limited imagination. While he was at the military academy, they strictly limited the freedom of creativity to all their students, and now Daigoro is heavily deprived because of such restrictions. The most that Daigoro can do with his limited ability is sing lullabies or songs he has listened to beforehand. Often his grandfather would request him to sing various songs and notices that singing is Daigoro's only means of expressing his inner self. (he is much more expressive ) Anything beyond that is unknown.
Fearful Of Change It is evident that after the death of his parents, Daigoro, underwent a drastic change in himself. The trauma from the loss of his parents haunted Daigoro. However this dissipated when his grandfather sent him off to military school. His attendance at the academy allowed him to heavily practice more a more traditional perspective on life. This was offered to him as an opportunity, and he took it as an escape route. Now that he has intricately interwoven the structure that the academy provided for him, he uses it as the foundation for all his beliefs and motivation. There are several times when people try to encourage him to stop conforming and find a new path to understanding, but he is fearful of experiencing the familiar chaos from after he lost his parents. Daigoro goes into deep thought when he is engaged into thinking about who he is, and like most teenagers his age, is highly unsure of who he is or who he aspires to be. Furthermore he becomes increasingly nervous when he comes out of his comfort zone in situations that require a higher level thinking. When he feels obligated to answer he cannot muster up a straight or proper answer because he is straying away from his teaching and fears that the walls he built would crumble and throw him into disarray.

W E A K N E S S E S : +Lacks a creative imagination +Has a tendency to overwork himself and become exhausted from overworking +Cannot quite grasp the understanding of other people's feelings when his work conflicts with the opinions of others +Does not really care who's really affected by the goal at hand +Very stubborn +Lots of short-term goals, however is very unsure of himself in the long-term perspective +His private life and secrets, for example his parent's death or his singing (can be easily threatened by these because he likes to keep such things to himself....) +His dependency on others to take charge +Lack of experience in leadership +Fear of change in his daily lifestyle +Can only work on one goal at a time and has difficulties with balance/managing his priorities +Chaos +Analyzing and thinking ahead +Rigid thought process
H I S T O R Y : When Daigoro was younger, he overindulged himself with his parents' wealth which nurtured him into a spoiled brat. However, in the 5th grade, his parents died in a car accident. Although he was ordered by the court to live with his grandfather in Japan, he sent Daigoro to military school to "straighten out his grandson's attitude".
At first, Daigoro spent weeks mourning the loss of his parents, but eventually he accepted his fate and assimilated to his new environment. At the academy he initially underwent drastic physical and mental situations that transformed him into a taciturn teenager. Now he always tries to strictly organize his life.
Daigoro participated in several activities in the academy at the request of his peers and sympathetic staff members in hopes of lightening up his spirit. Even though he brought success to them with his diligent work ethic, Daigoro's demeanor remained reserved.
Years passed and Daigoro's grandfather arrived at the academy to see his grandson, hoping that he changed for the better. When the two met, his grandfather was delighted to see the development of his grandson. Daigoro's grandfather took him to Japan to live in Kirimori and allow Daigoro to truly experience high school.
