    Soenatte
    Date of acquisition:
    4th of August 2015
    Provenance:
    The head was purchased from The Count here on the DoA marketplace
    The body was from the initial fullset release of Minifee Ante, so it's actually one of the first Moe line bodies to be commercially released. It was purchased via DDE.
    Reason for choice:
    The expression of the sculpt, of course. It suits the character and besides that, I just love smiling dolls to the moon and back. Everything about him is just perfect.
    Best Points:
    He has the most adorable lips, nose and eyes I've ever seen on a doll, plus the M-line body fit the character's petite physique after the mods, so I'm willing to forgive its flaws.
    Worst Points:
    How limited the poseability of the body really is, however fluent the poses it can take can look.
  • Eyes:
    small iris 12mm green glass eyes, unknown maker
    Wig:
    (tentative) Unoa brown 6-7 fur wig
    Favourite colours:
    Oddly, Waka's favorite color is a salmon orange for next to no reason in particular
    Fashion style(s):
    None and any, although he mostly dresses for comfort, he is known to fool around with whatever he can get his hands on due to being raised in a rather conservative fashion that allowed for little experimentation
    Key fashion accessory:
    None, Waka is averse to having 'signature' clothing, since he prefers being as inconspicuous as possible
  • Name story:
    Named after the Heian-period, great general and historical figure Minamoto no Yoshitsune.
    Character age:
    Seventeen
    Character gender:
    male
    Offsite roleplay:
    This doll's character is not available for offsite roleplay.
    Also called Ushiwakamaru (or just Waka), Yoshitsune's real name is Nine. His full name is more of a title than anything in particular, as the next heir of the Minamoto clan of Onmyouji.

    Him and his ten "siblings", all of them of the clan’s own blood, were given neither a name nor the comfort of a family and home. From the moment they could walk and talk they were taught how to survive on their own and how to fight and more importantly, perhaps, how to connect to the realm of spirits and to practice onmyoudo.

    Ushiwaka was very petite and physically fragile as a child -which is irrelevant for most onmyouji except the ones in the Minamoto clan since they need to carry out assassinations- yet at the same time he was also unruly and disobedient getting into all sorts of trouble which put him in a rather less than favorable position as compared to the other ten. Eventually he had this sort of behaviour quite literally beat out of him which forced him to fall back into his other assets in order to retain his individuality and sense of self despite the trials that were imposed on them.

    Several years later, Yoshitsune is sent to assassinate the heir to the Takahashi clan that has since dwindled in size but against all the odds, instead of carrying out his mission, ends up assisting him in a plan hatched by himself to unite the Sect of Onmyoudo instead.

    He originally had three shikigami, Yukine, his family's heirloom since around 900 AD, Taka, who is in fact the spirit of his 'brother' 11 and Ayame whose shell was irreparably damaged in combat. Later his little group of guardians is joined by the company of Chere, a young dragon turtle who they end up meeting during the course of the story.
