SAKURA (Kaori Ito)
Character History: The second doodled character - my desire to create someone of an ethnic origin who belonged with the Misfit camp :) Her name, Kaori, was swiped from one of my mother's Japanese students, and the surname came from yet another one...heh. Shameful...
Story Appearances: Who Is She Anyway?, Anything For Love. Sakura does not appear in Jewel's World, though she is mentioned several times.
Character Profile : Sakura is Chimera's closest ally, and despite being the exact opposite in character, the two girls are almost like sisters. Sakura prefers to be behind the scenes rather than showing off her talent, which is with electronic gadgets. In this respect her help is invaluable where Chimera's video career is concerned, so they help each other out. Sakura is extremely shy, however, and idolises Chimera rather more than is wise for her to do. She is exceptionally bright, and at twenty years old is also apprenticed with Mark Robinson as a prospective technical adviser. However her ability is such that Mark often looks to her for technological guidance as opposed to the other way around. Like Chimera, she begins with working on a Stingers project, but they scare her once too many, for Sakura is very sensitive to teasing of any sort. Of the Misfits she gets along best with Stormer, for obvious reasons. Despite her retiring nature, when roused she can be as devious and cunning as her friend, and often gets away with it far easier, due to her sweet disposition and innocent expressions.
Sakura is one of a family of four children, and is of Japanese-American extraction, with family still living in Asia. As a result she has travelled a great deal. Since Chimera puts her loyalty with the Misfits, Sakura does likewise, although she is often intimidated by their brashness.
