Bender type: Nonbender
Tamako is a rather short woman, always walking with an aura of confidence. She dresses quite conservatively and often wears a composite vest under her clothes for slight protection. In battle, she can often be seen wearing a gas mask.
Tamako is an evil genius in every sense of the world. Huge ego-check, devices created for hurting people-check and most of all being pure evil and literally only caring about herself and anyone useful-check. From day 1, the malevolent mistress has been a textbook example of sociopathy. Her cold, calculating nature, she is often more willing to stay in the background and gather information rather than being the first to act. Her lack of empathy means she has never felt any form of sympathy in her life.
Because of this, she was very selfish and was willing to kill anyone if it benefited her. Such as orchestrating the death of her birth parents and then betraying her loving adopted father. Tamako loves power and works hard to keep it, though she's able to wield the public image of a kind business woman to further mask her Syndicate activities. Along with all that and a high-IQ, she nearly always thinks of herself as completely smarter compared to those around her. She’s somewhat of a sexual deviant, but lacks the experience to be well-versed in it. Her virginity aside, her sensual fantasies would qualify as...masochistic. Naturally this has been something she kept to herself for her whole life.
Tamako was born in an underprivileged neighborhood in the Fire Nation, her parents were poor, miserable and rarely seemed to even like each other. Either way, she showed remarkable intelligence from a young age. In school, she seemed to be smarter than her whole class. But while her classmates played games and befriended one another, Tamako seemed to lack interest in anything social at all. She always looked lonely, but in fact she was happier that way.
Truth be told, by the age of 7 she made the firm decision that she hated her parents. They were drunks with no talents, work ethic or ambition whatsoever. She was embarrassed to even be related to those disgraces for human beings. As other school children began playing with fireballs or shooting around gusts of air, Tamako made the realization that she wasn’t a bender. She didn’t seem to care, it wasn’t like she needed bending anyway.
Breezing through her classes, she threw herself into more studying. Learning about medicine, machines, the human body and anything else that peaked her interest. Her thirst for knowledge had been a joy for her, she was proud of her intelligence. Meanwhile her parents had been trying to cure their demons, the result of their time at a local temple dedicated to worshipping Raava.
She was around 12 at this time, her parents had wanted to bond with her but she just wasn’t interested. Meanwhile she had heard that an infamous couple of nobles had been seeking to adopt a daughter, they had wanted a well behaved and remarkably intelligent girl. At that point, Tamako decided that she could easily meet their requirements if her parents were out of the picture.
She devised a rather risky plan that would completely get rid of them. Tamako’s knowledge on mechanics had allowed her to interfere with the gas from the oven, some simply tinkering turned it into a timer bomb. Fortunately her parents has relapsed and fell into their alcoholic habits, so they passed out as their daughter sealed their fate. It was easy to steal some money and run out about 10 minutes before the explosion. A grin nearly came to her face once she was in the market and heard the loud detonation.
It was done, the townsfolk had crowded around the epicenter as local authorities investigated. Tamako had such an easy time playing the grieving orphan, some eye drops and decent acting made it believable enough. The incident had been all over the news, catching the attention of the nobles of the Nakahara family that she wanted to be a part of so badly.
The 12 year old was now the only child to the intelligent, rich parents she always thought she deserved. Her new father Hirai was the head of a successful engineering company, Tamako had been quite interested in the family business. Hirai had held the image of a kind and fully legitimate business man.
Tamako’s teen years had been nothing but work, advancing her knowledge of machinery and business under her father’s tutelage and attending a well-known private school for girls. While the other rich girls partied and slept around, she was hard at work improving her knowledge.
Though after hearing about a few girls from her school getting raped when she was 15, Tamako sought out means of self defense. Weapons, martial arts, poisons and knowledge of the human body would all be things to aid in her survival. She refused to be ignorant like her birth parents or weak like her classmates that allowed themselves to become victims.
On her 18th birthday, Hirai had thought his beloved daughter had been worthy of the truth. Tamako had learned her father was a member of the international organization known as the Syndicate. All this time, he wanted a trusted child of his to aid in his standing. A child he could trust to follow his best interests. Tamako had pretended to go along with this for a while, but truthfully she had no interest in sharing the Nakahara family’s power and wanted it all to herself.
But simply killing him would look too suspicious. So she had been sure to reach out to her father’s enemies who wanted him gone. With some dealing and exchange of information, Tamako had become the new head of Nakahara Industries and gained most of her father’s standing within the Syndicate while her adoptive parents had went missing on their vacation, never to be seen again.
After two years of running her very own company and making sure things stayed that way, the 20 year old had received a call. Having been requested by the Syndicate leader of Republic City to help him in his plans. It seemed profitable for Nakahara Industries to overwhelm Cabbage Corp and eventually own it herself.
