Bender type: Nonbender
Airi is a complicated young woman. She is openly antagonistic to anyone in a position of power but if told to do something she will usually do it. She repeatedly professes her hatred for other people but will put others first and be kind when she can. This is due to her childhood. The unloved, unwanted child of a noble house who rebelled in anyway she could, going so far as to attempt suicide after all her previous attempts at gaining her parents attention had failed to yield any significant response.
Airi is very casual with her sexuality. If she feels like it and there is a nearby person she takes a fancy to 9 times out of 10 she’ll try to sleep with them, be they male or female. This comes out as an extremely flirtatious streak when in public.
Airi is a dark person and her thoughts reflect this quite clearly, though she would never dare tell anyone about them. When Airi is alone for extended periods of time she tend to question the worth of her own life, if anyone would miss her if she were gone or not? However for the most part she can push these thoughts to the back of her mind if she is around someone she likes or is distracted enough about anything that makes her feel special and/or appreciated.
From the earliest moment I can remember everything has been all wrong. I was unwanted by my family and cast aside as soon as possible, left to find my own way in the world.
Reina and Taehan, my oh-so-important fire nation noble parents, never wanted a girl. They wanted another boy to make their line all the more secure I guess. My elder brother Saito had already gave them their oh-so-important heir so then they needed another son to go and marry some heiress and take all her money. Unluckily for both them and me, I wasn’t a son…
They put me through school as soon as I could talk without garbling my words. If I was to be their burden I had best be a properly educated one as my father always said. They also put me through martial arts training… A five-year-old girl being forced to learn how to fight, what the fuck right?.. Anyway it was apparently to encourage me to embrace my firebending heritage and do the family proud. I did not do well however. Not only did I not produce any bending, I was also extremely slow to learn the arts of fighting. I got there eventually of course but eventually is a lifetime too slowly for my loving firebender parents. My brother on the other hand was the perfect child. He was smart, strong and most importantly a gifted firebender.
Saito got all of the love from my parents, I only ever got their attention when I fucked up with something so eventually that’s what I strived to do. They only ever saw me as a disappointment and would only ever pay attention to me when I further reinforced that view. I was 16 when I began taking cactus juice. I thought that if I got bad enough they would notice me and take care of me. They didn’t of course and over the next couple of years I spiraled further into myself, sleeping around and getting high all day. I’m not saying it wasn’t fun when I was fucking someone or doing drugs or both but the guilt that came after it all made me want to just curl up in a ball and die. Who the fuck would care if I died if not even my parents did? If not even I did?
So as you can probably imagine I was in a really dark place. I made smiles and small talk in front of my family and friends but making nice didn’t make me feel it so eventually I saw the only way out as death. I tried to hang myself on my 19th birthday, Saito found me and cut me down before any major damage was done though so I guess my family was not so shitty then. Anyway Reina and Taehan actually seemed to care about me while I was in the hospital and it really got to me. I try to kill myself and they come running? What the fuck? They only give a shit about me when I almost die? Saito was there for me though, he said he was making up for lost time but he was just feeling guilty that he never cared til then.
After all that bullshit I just wanted to not be there, not with them. I argued with Taehan for months about this, he said “A Kuroko puts family first.” to everything I ever said until I asked him why I was never first… So here I am then, all broken and semi-suicidal but I want to be somewhere new. I want to be someone new...
