Her father is half Japanese and half Western European(English/German), but spent most of his life in Japan. As a huge anime and comics fan, he couldn't resist the urge to move to Paragon City, where that type of action is both real and happening all the time. Her mother, a travelling saleswoman of purely Japanese decent, agreed to go. She didn't really care for the location, but it kept her husband happy and she figured she would be on the road most of the time anyways. Kiyomi was born about one year after her parents arrived and established a small corner store.
Unknown to Kiyomi or her father, her mother is a secret agent and only uses the travelling salesperson role as a cover for the frequent trips she has to make. Although Kiyomi knows nothing aboout this, it may be possible that other characters do, so I do not mind if someone wants to latch onto this as a possible RP idea.
Kiyomi, or Kim as she is known to most of her friends, grew up as pretty much a normal girl. Or at least as normal as it is possible to be in Paragon City. Her dad's store gets broken into on a fairly regular basis and she has been roguhed up a few times by the local gangs, but there always seems to be a hero about to clear things up before they get too out of hand.
When she started to develop powers in her early teens, she really didn't view it as anything out of the ordinary since several of her classmates started to gain powers about same time as well. Without the stress of being "different", she turned into a pretty much typical american girl. Her mother did not approve. Kiyomi faced a lot of pressure at home to be more involved with her Japanese Heritage (of which she knows very little) and also to stop speaking with a "silly american accent". When a formerly private Japanese based school opened it's doors to the public, Kiyomi's mother filed her enrollment papers right away before even discussing the move with Kiyomi. Now that she has been accepted into the school, she begins her struggles to fit in and become what her family expects.
