This is Sanyo news! The warmth of summer has just arrived, the odd chill that was spring is now gone! We got some strange news for you rumor mongers though. It seems that there is a cherry blossom tree atop the Bubble. All attempts to have it taken down seem to have failed. For now it still seems to be under investigation.

A pretty young woman with blue eyes and shoulder-length black hair, Yukari would describe herself as fashionable and fit. She stands at a petit five foot one and has a slender frame with little muscle definition to speak of despite years on the track team, with freckles dotted across her nose and cheeks. She's almost never seen without her digital camera around her neck and she enjoys staying on top of fashion trends, be it elbow-high gloves and striped stockings or plaid skirts and dresses. She has a fondness for chokers and hats regardless of whether she's in her school uniform or not, and has a large collection of earrings pins and buttons to customize her outfits endlessly even if it's the same uniform. She typically wears her hair pulled back in to either pigtails or a bun if it's not tucked in to a hat. While she enjoys trendy outfits she never exposes her stomach above the navel to avoid exposing old scars from being in a car wreck.

Yukari Hamada is a cheerful, kind hearted young woman who loves making friends and keeping them. She's a social butterfly and a sweetheart, she knows everybody who goes to her high school and her friendliness means she's generally well liked, if her good looks weren't enough to make her popular. She's a movie buff, loves anything that's well shot but her soft girly heart can't help but loves romance movies especially. She's a gentle soul, she scares easily and cries when she's particularly happy or sad, and she cares deepy for everyone she calls a friend. On the down side she has a temper and can get passionate and heated about things easily, she'll talk your head off if you let her, and she's deeply concerned with whether other people like her or not. She's a hopeless romantic dreaming of the day her knight in shining armor will come and sweep her off her feet, and she's incredibly sentimental and prone to keep things from memorable moments in her life. Despite the tragedy she's endured Yukari has mostly moved on, she's a tough girl and possessed of a natural optimism that only took a few years to resurface.
Born to loving parents in the city of Iwatodai, Yukari grew up hearing about her mother's career as a filmmaker in America and had dreams of one day going in to the film business herself. While she was pretty enough to be a model or an actress with the right connections, she's always been more interested in what goes on behind the camera rather than in front of it. Her father meanwhile was a businessman at the production agency her mother worked at during the shooting of a show investigating supernatural phenomenon; all kids of ghost stories and rumors of magic, though it was dismissed by many in Japan as silly it was somewhat popular in the West and set the family up comfortably for a time. Unfortunately tradegy struck one night while the happy family was on their way back home from picking up her mother from the airport after a business trip. While on the highway a drunk driver crashed in to them, putting the three of them in the hospital. Only the eleven year old Yukari ended up surviving the ordeal. She ended up being hired by one of her father's long time friends who had recently lost his wife, a business owner named Junpei Hamada.
From there Yukari and her new father moved to Sanyo City and the two of them helped each other bounce back from despair. After a few years, between him and her new friends at school, she would have called her life normal again. She found a passion for photography and camera work to fill her time, joined the track team as a runner and ended up becoming one of the popular girls by the time she entered high school for her upbeat personality and general niceness. She even picked up a passing interest in paranormal stuff from watching the show her mother filmed, and today at seventeen she's the spitting image of her mother in her youth; popular, full of life and love and probably one of the girliest people you could meet. But there's something weird going on in Sanyo lately, something weird and supernatural that she's even seen some evidence of possibly being true. And never let it be said Yukari isn't too curious for her own good...
Equipment Yukari's not a fighter, but if things get desperate she can always hit things with her notebook...
Notes Yukari is not rich, but her parents had a comfortable savings built up before their deaths that she can access small portions of with a little help from her adoptive dad. Her dad runs a coffee shop in the Sanyo Bubble that is fairly popular, which is where he can usually be found; he knows all the best rumors in town. Yukari's a proud member of the photography club, the track team (in which she's fairly good) and the film club at Mishiro High. She scares easily but that doesn't stop her from going to watch horror movies, even if she needs someone to walk her home afterward.
Skills: Analysis- Reveal one target's name, Arcana, and affinities. Traesto- Teleports the party to a random safe zone within a supernatural space, ending combat. Outside of combat, opens a one-way portal leading out of a supernatural space. Dia- Heals one target's minor wounds.
Description The Oracle of Delphi was an important figure in Greek and later Roman mythology. She was the mouthpiece of Apollo through which mortals might ask questions of the gods, though her answers were vague and open to interpretation. Upon becoming the new Oracle, the priestess would cast off her own name and become known as the Pythia.
Pythia has no direct combat skills and only possesses the most basic of attack, but makes up for this with powerful support abilities and the ability to sense nearby enemies, particularly Shadows, over a distance. She often appears as a ghostly apparition when performing spells.
Yukari's mask is a simple pair of glasses with red frames. They don't obscure much of her face, and they're pretty cute too!
