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.
Standing at just over 5'1", Saeko is on the shorter side, though she tries to not let that bother her too much. With her slim body line, and no muscle to speak of, it only makes Saeko seem smaller than she actually is. With her odd reddish eye color, some people have asked if she wears color contacts, but they are actually just from a very rare genetic disorder. Saeko's natural hair color is a rich black, however since a young age, since she already stood out a lot for her reddish eyes, she has been dying her hair a light pink color, making sure to keep the roots touched up often so as to keep the black hidden, and keeps her hair on the shorter end since when she lets it grow out too long, it becomes unruly to take care of, and sometimes starts to fall out because her roots are too short.
Clothing wise, Saeko almost always has a cat hoodie on, as its comfortable. Other than her hoodie, Saeko generally tries to mix simplicity and fashion. Good looking Tee's that are in style, and fashionable jeans, or a really nice looking dress, its all up for grabs. There are days however where her laziness takes over, and she might not be the most coordinated with her outfit, or just outright plain and simple. As if to counter the way she always dresses, its also nearly impossible to see Saeko without a small travel pillow for use in her many, many napping sessions throughout the day.
Chocolate - A little weak spot that developed mainly out of defiance of her father, Saeko would always try to sneak in as much chocolate as possible, Napping - Just like a cat, Saeko loves to take a nap and sleep just about anywhere, not even standing will keep her from a nap when the feeling of sleepiness overcomes her. Fish - When Saeko was younger, her family lived near a fish market, always getting that fresh fish made her develop a strong love for fish, and now not a day goes by that she doesn't have some. Pranks - "It's all fun and game until someone gets hurt, but we never go so far that they get hurt, so its just fun and games" - A nice little code to play by, no matter the side of the prank she's on. High Places - Being off the ground, often laying on tree branches, watching the people below calms Saeko, letting her mind wander, or just fall asleep to the gentle swaying of the tree branches.
Being woken up early - While this applies to mornings as well, Saeko really dislikes getting woken up from a nap early. Overly friendly people - we're not friends, I don't even know you, can you stop being so overly familiar? lets just get to know each other at a normal pace. Seeing people get hurt - even people she doesn't know too well, as long as they haven't been bad to her in the past, Saeko hates to see people get hurt or bullied. Very spicy food - A little bit of heat and some kick is alright, but when there is too much spice and heat, that's when Saeko doesn't like it.
Napping in the sun - On nice clear days, when it's not too hot, one should be able to find Saeko with her travel pillow taking a nap in a nice sunny spot. Cooking - Though it doesn't go to many people, Saeko managed to get very good at cooking over the years, and specialized in... you probably guessed it... fish, though she still can't quite make sushi properly, though she is always trying to.

Generally speaking Saeko is a quiet girl. Though she is fairly hard working, and good at her studies, Saeko is generally to lazy or tired to do most things in a timely manner, and procrastinates till the end.
In public, around people she doesn't know, Saeko is even more quiet than normal, almost as if she didn't exist some times. However, once Saeko gets to know people, she generally opens up, but keeps her family matters out of conversations as best she can because she knows every family is different, and some might be worse than hers. Unfortunately, when Saeko opens up to people, that generally means she also starts to play harmless pranks on them, generally food related, though nothing is poisonous, usually. When she is with family, Saeko has become a little dotting on her little brother, to try and replace her mom who has been with their grandma all the time recently.
In school, Saeko tries to keep to herself, and take good notes in all of her classes, when she doesn't just fall asleep for half a class. Due to her sleeping habits, Saeko knows that she will miss some of the course material in class, and therefore spends more time at night studying for tests and always makes sure to do her homework to the best of her abilities.
Born in Tokyo, Saeko was raised well enough by her parents. Her mother Shiro, early every morning would help the local fish market open, and the fishermen there bring in their haul for the day. She would almost always bring home fresh fish, as she got the first pick of the day all the time. Her father Naoji on the other hand would help to get Saeko ready and off to school before heading into his job. Since Shiro's job never needed her after noon, she would always be there to pick up Saeko from school, scold Saeko for falling asleep in class or somewhere else causing her to miss class in the middle of the day, clean up the house and make dinner. Though Saeko would be scolded for falling asleep all the time, it would never be too harsh of a scolding as her grades would never suffer no matter how bad she missed class. Even after they had their second child, Hirotaka, not too much about their life changed, just an extra stop in her daily routine to pick the youngest up as well.
Everything changed though just as Saeko was finishing up middle school and was getting ready to head to high school. Saeko's grandmother injured herself, and was hospitalized. Her mom discussed it with her father and they decided to send Shiro, Saeko, and Hirotaka to live in Sanyo to be closer to Hisa while she was still in the hospital and after for any long lasting medical care, and Naoji would stay in Tokyo for now to keep his job, as it was their main income. After arriving at their new home in Sanyo, Shiro immediately rushed to the hospital, leaving Saeko and Hirotaka to settle into the new house. Since they just moved into the area, the high school entrance exam that Saeko took in Tokyo wouldn't work for Mishiro High, but she was able to take a late entrance exam to see if she could get in. On the day of the exam, since her mother was already at the hospital since very early in the morning, Saeko slept in later than originally planed, missing her several alarms for the morning, and nearly missed making it to the exam on time. Though she made it to the exam, Saeko's troubles didn't end there, 20 minutes into the exam, less than half way through the first section, Saeko fell asleep. The examiner tried to wake Saeko to no avail, and ultimately, she failed her entrance exam. Having failed to get into Mishiro High, Saeko was left to enroll into Wakaba High.
After securing a high school to enroll in, and getting her brother set up with his school, Saeko and her family went back to normal... kinda. Since Shiro decided to only take care of her mother, Saeko and Hirotaka where left to their own devices, and as the older sister, Saeko stepped up and tried to help raise her little brother. From cooking, to cleaning, and even taking care of her little brother, Saeko did everything in place of her mother. This of course put a strain on Saeko, but she did her best to help where she could, though she also took many, many more naps than before thanks to the extra work.

Description Eir, a Valkyrie from old norse mythology is one of the Valkyrie that possessed medical knowledge. Using her knowledge of medicines, she aided her fellow sisters by tending to their wounds and strengthening them in battle. Eir is clad in her silver battle armor that had been embroidered with a royal blue/purple. Adorning her head, Eir wears a silver tiara with intricate patterns caved into it. In addition to her armor, Eir wields a ceremonial sword and shield.
Saeko's mask is similar in design to the tiara that Eir wears, only it takes the form of a mask covering her mouth, nose, and part of her neck with a simple clasp on the side.
