Involuntarily binds demons to herself, though once bound, the demons will perform her bidding and protect her
There is a 100% chance that she will either be reading a book, or have at least one book on her person

When Tai was a child, the monsters under her bed and in her closet were very real. As she grew up, she befriended these demons that were drawn to her latent magical talents and have adopted them as if they were pets. She does not voluntarily bind the demons to herself, but her magical nature causes the demons to bind themselves willingly. It's not something she can control.



Tai is not affiliated with any group at this time, though she is looking for a group that needs a librarian.


Tai with what is believed to have been a romantic partner

Tai is very shy to most any type of being save demons. She is most often noted for standing and reading a book in the most unlikely places, and it can be very hard to distract her attention from said book. Her love of books has caused her to lose many librarian jobs because visitors can find it hard to get her attention. Most that know her would describe her as very forgetful, neglecting even the most basic daily activities, such as eating and sleeping.

Tai is known to avoid romantic encounters, though there is a rumor of a female book author that she became involved with in Tokyo. It's unknown how or why the relationship ended, but the rumor is it's the reason Tai has come to the United States. When confronted romantically, Tai will most often say the demons that protect her have trouble discerning between an attack and a romantic encounter, although she has been known to simply flee the scene.


Tai is like a magic battery. Outside of the ability to fly, cast a few healing spells, and make herself invisible, there is little she can do to effect the outcome of a fight. It's not known how or why the demons are bound to her, though it's apparent she has neither the knowledge or ability to bind demons. She is known to warn other demons or planar beings away from herself for fear of binding them too.

The demons that are bound to her behave very much like pets. They obey her commands, and she has been seen to praise and scold them on occasion. The demons more than make up for her lack of offensive ability. They can unleash a devastating flurry of elemental attacks. Because Tai has enjoyed this kind of protection most of her life, she is known to walk into dangerous situations recklessly. Without her demons, Tai is very vulnerable. Due to her absentmindedness, she often leaves herself open to an attack.

In spite of her forgetfulness, Tai is very good at remembering anything she reads. She is capable of reading at astounding speeds and retaining all information she finds pertinent. This ability does not include things she's told, as she's very likely to forget verbal instructions as soon as her mind wanders, as it always does.


Tai is very short in stature, standing only five feet tall. She has a very well developed bust that she feels is a source of embarrassment and most usually will wear multiple layers of clothes on her upper torso. She most often wears conservative clothing of earthen tone in the fashion of the British business class, though her clothes are often wrinkled to the point of making an observer wonder if she slept in them. Her hair is often very unkempt and sometimes even tangled. This is thought to be as a result of her forgetfulness. It should be noted that while her appearance may be unkempt, this does not extend into her personal hygiene habits. While her hair may be tangled and messy, it is kept clean, and her clothes always appear laundered and free of any stains.


Tai and a date(?) at a social function in London

Born in London and raised in Tokyo, Tai was a very smart girl who excelled in school. She went on to attend several prestigious colleges and universities around the globe, but doesn't like to talk about her education. She will often relate a story where the first boy to kiss her was hospitalized due to the demons that protect her believing it to be an attack. What she won't relate is the fact that it really was an attack, and the boy was later prosecuted for attempted sexual assault.

Looking for Contacts

Seeking hero super group that needs a dedicated, if forgetful, librarian. ((Preferring heavy roleplay supergroup of primarily magic origins and a base with a library. Player is very experienced in CoX lore and roleplay. Character should be considered CoX canon.))
