Kamenoko University: Mei by juhaihai Kamenoko University: Mei by juhaihai
Name: Izumi Mei
Age: 19
Gender: Female
Height: 5'2" / 158 cm.
Date of Birth: July 25, 1993
Degree: Accountancy
Year: First year
+ Inquisitive - tends to ask too much questions out of pure curiosity
+ Thrifty - thinks before she spends.
+ Enthusiastic and outgoing - always excited about learning and seeing new stuff, specially those with potential for selling.
+ Hardworking - believes that you'll be able to get what you want if you work hard for it, no pain no gain.

- Short fused - easily angered when provoked and is easily offended. May physically hurt people = v =;;
- Leery - doesn't trust people and wary of their motives; she may put on an innocent face when she needs something from them.
- Aggressive - doesn't back out from a fight even tho she clearly doesn't have the upper hand.


Mei grew up in a middle class family in Fukuoka, she has two older sisters; one working outside the country as an editor and one who works in Osaka as a manager. They both help her pay up her tuition fees in college since their parents are both retired and are dependent only on the small grocery store the family owns. Even though her parents have raised her and her sister's fairly well, life was hard for the couple due to the fact that they both didn't go to college and started working right after high school; that's why this time they wanted their children to graduate and get a degree in hopes that it will help them with their lives.

Since the family wasn't rich, Mei got used to helping around with the chores at home at an early age and realized that the family didn't have that much. The family had experienced being kicked out of their apartment twice since they couldn't pay rent and had to spend one night sleeping outside in the cold. In order to help around with the expenses, she and her sisters spends their summer vacation taking odd jobs.

Due to her aggressive and tactless nature, a lot of girls hated her in high school and the boys just avoided her. She really didn't have anyone she could call 'friend' back then, not that she badly needed one. Mei avoided being too dependent on others and has constantly high marks in school and had been top in class.

She didn't like the idea of going to college. She was earning a lot more than most of her peers and was confident enough to get a decent job with her grades and past job experiences, so she clearly didn't need college, right? She didn't want to go all over the whole process of meeting people again and dealing with classmates and homework and teachers, but most of all she thinks college is a waste of time and money; but since she loves her parents and wants to fulfill their dream of having all their children finish college, she gives the college exams a shot.

Stepping into the premises of Kamenoko university, she starts to head on to the news boards to check if she had passed the exams...
'Hopefully not.' she whispers as she scans for her name unwillingly on the lists.

Club: --
Occupation: Has experience in table waiting, cashier, babysitter, dogwalker, food taster, assistant, store clerk and a lot of other small jobs.

Likes: Money, rare expensive items, free stuff, haggling, gullible people, payday, festivals, karaoke, internet surfing and games.
Dislikes: Shrimp (allergic to it), Low grades, being called 'short', freakin' tall people (people above 6 feet), rude customers (has learned to control her temper when dealing with them tho)

+ doesn't really care about fashion, would rather spend her money on food than new clothes. (dats y she looks like a hobo 24/7 //shot)
+ doesn't wear make-up that often.
+ her only lazy habit would be surfing the internet for hours and chatting with random people online.
+ lives with her aunt while she waits for exam results, she plans on taking an apartment closer to school so she can save up on train fees.
+ she's bad at taking directions and maps, needs to rely on a step by step process.

Screentones? Ah for the screen tones, I use Photoshop and manga studio. 

Here is a tutorial I found when I was first learning how to use screentones…
My methods are a little bit different than that (a little faster too xD) But this is a great tutorial for beginners, it helped me a lot back then.

For the other stuff, you can check out this site…

Hope it helps, and sorry for the uber late reply!

Hey Juhai !
I didn't know you had enrolled in Kame. Are you active ovo?
Your girl sounds like a real blast, all strong and hard working. She has a lot of potential for all kinds of story paths (best kind of characters imo).
