Asami, Iron chef of torture



  • Campaign: Something Exalted
  • Name:Asami
  • Concept:Iron chef, with torture as this week's special ingredient
  • Caste/Aspect:Daybreak
  • Motivation:Not being taken kicking a screaming back to the abyss.
  • Positive intimacies:cooking
  • Negative intimacies:
  • Anima:a swarm of cicadas appears to cloud the air around Asami.
  • Experience: 5/5


Cruel, manipulative in combat, stone-hearted at most other times (unless cooking still takes joy in it). A once a faithful wife and honored chef, after being killed by her husband was offered abyssal-ship so that she could return the favor. She took three full days to kill him the most cruel manner and when the deed was done, decided not to make good on her promise to serve the deathlord that gave her new life. (I realize this a piss-poor excuse, but honestly I can't think of anything better)


Asami's skin is a light pallor, with eyes that almost speak from beyond the void, she is five feet nine inches, and has jet black hair that is in somewhat of a bun. Asami's kimono is white as snow, with a black trim, there is also a recurring cicada pattern woven into the kimono. Several scars (that look poorly stitched together) appear on her legs, hands and arms when they are shown. (will post pic when my artist is done with the commission)
