    Name: Asano Shimizu
    Age: ~45
    Birthday: June 5
    Gender: Male
    Species: Human
    Category: Citizen
    Career: Owner of the Innate Strength Dojo

    Appearance Description:
    [​IMG]

    A keen note to know about Asano is that while he takes good care of himself, he takes no pride in his appearance. Between the shaggy brown hair and baggy black eyes, he looks like he hadn't slept in years. This might be true, but let's not focus on that.

    He is 6ft tall, and appears to have a fairly average build when wearing a shirt, yet is extremely muscular underneath, which he hates to show others. Some of his fingers, namely his left ring and pinky finger, are missing the final knuckle, and are a mark of previous experience with frostbite. something else he doesn't like to talk about.


    Asano doesn't shave often, about once a month, so almost always, a small amount of stubble can be seen on his face.



    Personality Description:
    To many, he can be described as a jovial man, always ready to joke around, but for his students and his Daughter, he is a strict person. He won't allow for weakness from anyone more than once in his dojo.

    He loves his family, however, and hates to make his only daughter cry. Asano has a habit of lowering the temperature in a room so his family could enter without issue, and will never complain about the cold, even if warmer temperatures make him uncomfortable.

    He might be strict, but he is always looking for ways to improve his student's skills.

    Active Abilities:
    N/A

    Passive Abilities:
    Truth or dare- he has an aura that enforces the rules of the game truth or dare. Whenever the words truth or dare are mentioned within 5ft of him, including by himself, the targeted person of the challenge feels compelled to select one of the two options.

    Truth- the target is unable to lie, regardless of their intentions, and will answer a single question from the challenger honestly. If a question is not asked before a minute has passed since saying the truth, then the effect fades.

    Dare- the challenger can command the target to do a single task, and the target will feel compelled to do so. The dare can be resisted, but even for the most willful, it cannot be resisted more than 24 hours. Actions chosen for the dare cannot be sexual in nature, nor can it cause permanent injury to the target, the challenger, or another third party. A duration for the dare can be set (IE, stand on your head for a minute) but the longer the duration, the easier it is to resist, with a dare lasting a lifetime only really occurring if it is allowed or when the target is in a fatigued state.

    Regardless of the result, the challenger becomes unable to challenge the target again, until the target challenges them first. To successfully challenge them back, they have to be within 10ft of Asano.

    Beings immune to magical influence, auras, mind control (robots and ai cannot be challenged, regardless if they can be mind controlled) or that are otherwise unable to hear cannot be challenged, in addition, if his power is nullified within ten seconds of the challenge being answered with truth or dare, then the target wouldn't be affected by it, and it was as if their challenge was completed, and the challenger is unable to challenge them again without. being challenged first.

    Weaknesses:
    N/A

    Common Magical Items:
    Nullification Bracelet worn during fights.
    Aura Warning bracelet for honesty + other

    Biography:
    Asano was born the second son to the Shimizu family. He was raised knowing that he wouldn't be the heir, but he persevered, hoping to be stronger than his brother, who was at least seven years his senior and much stronger, so Asano learned to become stronger and tougher than his opponents. A scout had approached his family once when he was eight after he broke a brick wall with a single punch, however, his family insisted he stayed with them, and not willing to leave their dojo in Japan, the scout left.

    when he was 18, Asano discovered his aura power during a game with his at-the-time girlfriend. He learned that she didn't really love him, and was in fact also dating his older brother. Both of them were startled by her honesty, but his now ex girlfriend didn't think much of it, as she had been planning to break it off with him for a while.

    Heartbroken, asano asked for and received his father's permission,and began to train high up in the mountains, far from civilisation.

    It was a cold blizzard when he met her. She was beautiful as the landscape around her and he was instantly in love. He was used to the cold due to his training, so rather than hide somewhere warm, Asano instead spent the entirety of the blizzard talking to Akemi. They became quick friends, and she spared his life on the decision that he would share his meagre rations again.

    Asano spent several years on the mountain, training. When it was cold, he talked with Akemi. One day, he confessed his love to find that she felt the same way, and they considered themselves lovers.

    Being gone for so long, his family began to worry about his life. His brother decided to follow his journey, in hopes that he might find the remains of his former rival.

    Instead of remains, what he found was a healthy man, along with a 9-month pregnant wife. Knowing what she was immediate, the Brother tried to kill her with a climbing axe.

    That day was the only time he was able to beat his brother, but it resulted in a dead man, and his stressed wife going into early labour. Not being prepared for this, Asano did what he could, and he brought his beautiful daughter into the world, but his poor wife couldn't make it.

    Fearful for the savage world he had left, Asano raised his daughter in isolation, teaching her how to quickly disable an opponent if she was ever in trouble. But he worried. Could she ever live a life as he could?

    When his daughter was 12, a scout approached him again. Knowing what this could be, he agreed, if only for his daughter's life. Taking the trip from Japan to Manta Carlos, his mind only settled on one thing, to continue his father's Dojo, but for everyone, regardless of who they were and what they could do.

    Resources: The Current owner of the Innate strength Dojo. He has enough money to live comfortably on the island for a while and lives with his daughter.

    Additional Information: Fighty Boi to teach your kids. he has been trained in martial arts for decades, and is physically strong through this training.
