Adhara (Dormant version)

Head Sculpt:
Peach Gold (blushed to match body)
Impldoll Starwoman MGB (2019 RealSkin)
  • Face-up artist(s):
    Modifications artist(s):
    Me (for arm scars)
    Date of acquisition:
    February 24, 2019 (head); January 12, 2019 (body)
    I am the fourth owner (all three previous owners traceable here in DoA)
    Reason for choice:
    The smirk is priceless, and I needed a female sculpt that could work as an alternate for my Fantasia Doll Vivian, the "War" version of the character.
    Best Points:
    Head: love the sculpting and the expression
    Body: lovely resin color, great quality and poseability for the price
    Worst Points:
    Head: the magnets that came with the head are quite weak
    Body: the shoulders are quite wide. I personally don't mind it, but I can see how this would be an issue for some people. The torso part could also use some modding so as to further increase the posing capacity of the shoulder joints.
    She is the same character as the other Adhara in my doll profile list; this is her form when in "stealth" or "dormant" mode. Like War-Adhara, her L5R incarnation is known as Bayushi Kaguya.
  • Eyes:
    Silent Paradise FF17
    Handmade by yours truly
    Favourite colours:
    Red and black, sometimes golds
    Fashion style(s):
    East Asian traditional, fantasy, the occasional modern casuals
    Key fashion accessory:
    A belt accessory that is the pair to what her S.O. has.
  • Name story:
    Kaguya (written as 香紅夜 -- "incense," "deep red," "night") is actually the character's legal name, but she is called "Adhara" by a trusted few. It literally means "virgins" in a tongue foreign to her birth land.
    Character age:
    80+ in the Edo timeline, 28 at the start of the L5R timeline
    Character gender:
    Offsite roleplay:
    This doll's character is not available for offsite roleplay.
    See her War Form for the details. She appears in her warlike version by default, and only takes on her more intimate "dormant" form when in the presence of her mate, her daughter, her son, and her mother.

    Relationship tree here.

    Known as Shosuro Kaguya during her childhood, she joined the ruling family of the Scorpion Clan by marriage to Bayushi Isamu, to whom she had been betrothed for as long as she can remember. Scorned as a failure where attracting the romantic attention of others was concerned, Kaguya was initially ambivalent to her husband-to-be. However, Isamu was genuinely devoted to her and his efforts turned their arranged marriage into a love match. To her devastation, he vanished under suspicious circumstances hardly a year into their wedded life together. Kaguya spent most of the next ten years trying to uncover the truth, until she was suddenly required to go on a delicate mission with a bushi from the Lion Clan, Ikoma Jinsuke.

    Despite a rough start, she and Jinsuke developed unexpected rapport, culminating in them being elevated to the rank of Emerald Magistrate upon success of their mission. Although uncomfortable with being in a position of power (and remaining Jinsuke's professional partner, to boot), Kaguya was nonetheless determined to make the most of the situation. Against all odds, she was able to use the new perks of her rank to uncover definitive proof that her long-missing husband was still alive. However, there was one complication she didn't anticipate: Ikoma Jinsuke had fallen in love with her. And furthermore, she was beginning to return his feelings, despite knowing the difficulties such an inter-clan relationship would incur.
