So here are my changes for Kagura. I'd like to request that the original descriptions of the app not be edited out. To make things easier I put the old descriptions in a spoiler tag with the new changes beneath. It might make things easier for those that aren't familiar with Kagura transition from her old character to her new character. I did not change anything with her move set. It is still the same.

Gimmick

Click for Spoiler:
Kagura Ohzora is a Shinto shrine maiden and priestess. She came to America for the opportunity to advance her skills in the squared circle and earn money to aid her family. Even though her English skills are very poor, she is a keen observer of her surroundings. She is quiet, modest, and respectful to others. She will not speak unless directly spoken to. She is a pacifist and will only use violence to defend herself. She mostly uses her manager to communicate with others.


Kagura Daikonran is a Shinto shrine maiden. After a run in with the Japanese mafia she came in to possession of an ancient Shinto ritual book. By channeling the power of the Kami the book grants her abilities that she otherwise would not have had, such as speaking a language that she had not been fluent in before, or granting her in depth knowledge about a culture that she had no prior experience with. The book also has the power to curse others, but no in depth information on what these curses may be has been revealed.


Strengths/ Weakness

Click for Spoiler:
Pros: She is an explosive competitor and can strike without warning. She has great in ring presence. She is quite fast and agile. Her reflexes are cat like. Despite her appearance her pain tolerance is high.


Pros: She no longer suffers from culture shock and the language barrier is gone. Her will is absolutely steeled as Kagura Daikonran. She is also far more aggressive and won't show her opponents any mercy.

Click for Spoiler:
Cons: Suffered from asthma as a child and as a result her stamina begins to steadily drop over time. Despite being very athletic she hardly ever uses high risk maneuvers. Being a foreigner she is naive to most American customs, and has been known to suffer bouts of culture shock. Her English is also limited to a couple words and short phrases.


Cons: She has developed a bit of temper and can become frustrated. She’s also not above blatantly breaking the rules if she has too, but she still enjoys a clean fight. She has also become much more arrogant of herself and her abilities and can underestimate her opponents.


Alignment

Face


Tweener – She respects those that respect her, but she is not above breaking rules and hurting others that get in her way.


Brief History

Kagura was born in Ise, or the city more commonly known in Japan as the “Holy City,” where she has lived for the majority of her life. The city is named after the famed Ise Grand Shrine [Ise Jingu] - the most important Shinto shrine in the country. The Watarai clan is a family of priests and priestess that have been the keepers of the Ise Jingu outer shrine for centuries. Kagura grew up in the village surrounding the outer shrine. As a young maiden she was trained in the various duties of the miko: performing purification rituals, ceremonies, and various festive dances and musical instruments. During this time she was trained in the art of judo by her overbearing grandfather and was later trained in the art of pyromancy - of which she uses extensively. Her family did not have enough money to send her to college, and Kagura soon found herself in need of money following the ailments of her father. She entered the ranks of “joshi puroresu” because it was an easy way to make some fast cash. Following the next few years she quickly became a rising star. Entire crowds flocked to see her perform. Her unique style allowed her to fuse her miko background with her martial arts training. As a result her matches were more like stand alone works of art. Her movements were so fluid that it was almost as if she danced in the ring and subdued her opponents with rapid graceful motions, rather than relying on brute force. She quickly earned the nickname “Odoriko” meaning “The Dancer” from her fans.

She briefly retired as a professional wrestler following the death of her father and devoted herself purely to the shrine, but was soon forced to return to the lifestyle as her grandfather became ill. The call from WZCW talent scouts eventually made its way to her ears as the monolithic American company began signing many noteworthy talents from the different promotions across the country. And soon enough she was offered a developmental contract through contacts from her former promotion. Even though she spoke little English and knew next to nothing except for the basics of American culture, the scouts praised her gorgeous looks and feminine charm. After weighing the pros and cons she finally decided that the opportunity was too good to pass up. Not wanting to leave her identity behind, Kagura decided to take it with her to America.

Her recent history involves her stumbling upon a book dropped by a researcher in an airport in the United States. Her quest to return the book led to her meeting many people, being hunted by the Yakuza, losing her mentor but finding potential love at the same time.



Fighting Style

She is a skilled judo practitioner, having been trained as a child, and can use a bit of jujitsu. She mostly throws her opponent around, wearing them down before finishing them with a quick strike. She also practices “kyushojitsu” or pressure points. She knows enough of the basics in order to apply them both offensively and defensively.


Entrance Details

As Kagura Ohzora

Click for Spoiler:
As her music plays pink lights begin to swirl around the stage in a circular pattern, representing the petals of many cherry blossoms falling through the air. A fine mist appears on the stage. Kagura emerges and walks down the ramp through the mist. She carries a long wand with triangle shaped streamers called a “gohei” which she waves back and forth as to bless the audience and the facilities. She ascends the stairs and enters between the middle ropes. Afterwards she bows to the audience on each side of the ropes and places the wand aside and awaits her opponent.

Occasionally her manager will accompany her to the ring. In the case that he does he will be the one to walk out first with Kagura walking behind him. From there the entrance follows the same setup.


As Kagura Daikonran

As her music plays, the lights in the arena dim as pink lights begin to swirl, but they quickly change to gold and then to grayish white, representing the decay in the life of the cherry blossoms as snow falls. As the lights turn white she begins to slowly walk to the ring. She clutches the book to her chest with one arm, looking around the arena. She ignores the fans attempts to cheer or boo her and walks around the ring to the timekeeper’s area. She hands the timekeeper the book for safekeeping before sliding into the ring and awaiting her opponent.

If her opponent is already in the ring she’ll smile at them before bowing, respectfully if they are a face, in mock fashion if they are a heel.
