General Physical Condition

Inami is tall, athletic, and exceptionally strong with a slim, toned figure and a healthy constitution.

Body Features

Notable body features include golden eyes with narrow pupils, large, bat-like demon wings, curved ears that come to a point, and a deep crimson hue to her skin - all a result of her demonic heritage. Her face is long with a broad, thick-bridged nose, high cheekbones, and full lips. Freckles pepper her face, and she has several facial and body piercings.   She has a crown tattoo on her shoulder blade.

Physical quirks

She does not cast a shadow.

Special abilities

Her fiendish ancestry makes her mildly resistant to some elemental damage and grants her a charm that leave her supernaturally alluring. In addition, she has quick reflexes and is capable of seeing in the dark.   Her arcane and martial training means she's highly capable of utilizing magic even in close, meelee combat, and she works especially well with allies who have undergone similar combat training, able to utilize teamwork to her advantage.

Apparel & Accessories

Inami prefers gothic and punk-gothic attire and is usually seen sporting metallic jewelery and various body piercings. She's fond of leather, fishnests, chokers, and tight-fitting clothes. She possesses one of two enchanted heart shaped pendants that allow her and her brother to communicate over long distances. When touched, the twin pendant will glow and radiate a mild warmth.

Mental characteristics

Personal history

Inami was born to Charlotte Cardozo and an unknown incubus in 769 GTS along with her twin brother, Tonari. They grew up in a small village on the outskirts of a major city, and due to societal rejection, her mother struggled to make ends meet. Financial instability led to her mother's reliance on gang-leader and on-again-off-again lover Nikolet Colombo.   In her adolescence, Inami was caught stealing food by the local guard. Once escorted to jail, a member of the Crimson Kings informed Nikolet, who offered to free Inami and initiate both twins into the gang if he agreed to take his mother's life. When the boy did as he was told, Niko kept his word.   Once fully-fledged gang members, Niko arranged for their educations, having Inami trained in magic and swordplay. As they got older, Inami eventually left the gang out of distaste for Niko and his manipulative actions. Tonari joined his sister, and the two made names for themselves before the Crimson Kings eventually tracked them both down. Inami was shot to death, but they spared Tonari, who eventually made a deal with a witch to bring his sister back to life.   She and her brother joined a crew of pirates who helped free them both from said witch, and she now captains the Rolling Storm.


Inami is bisexual, though has a strong preference for women. She is sexually open and promiscuous, and practices casual sex regularly.


Inami attended some public schooling in Semki before she eventually left due to intense hardship. Under the care of Nikolet Cardozo, she was taught reading and writing, and trained in swordplay and the arcane arts with the Crimson Kings, eventually becoming a magus.


Her early years of work were all gang related, acting as a lookout and drug runner for the Crimson Kings before taking on the role of hit man for the Blood Suckers. She then spent some time doing independent mercenary work before eventually joining the crew of The Wicked Reckoning to become a pirate.   She currently captains the Rolling Storm, and works as a privateer for Valimar.

Accomplishments & Achievements

Despite difficulties receiving schooling in early childhood, Inami is highly literate and well-educated in swordplay and the arcane arts. She is an accomplished magus and respected among peers who are willing to overlook (or unaware of) her criminal links.   She is the captain and an admiral of her ship, and a competent leader. Her charisma and strong negotiation skills make her highly effective at this role.

Failures & Embarrassments

She rarely discusses her upbringing or her former affiliation with the Blood Suckers or the Crimson Kings, though she does not go out of her way to hide her past. She was also shot to death at one point, an assassination ordered by her former adoptive parent and boss Nikolet Colombo and brought back to life through her brother's intervention.

Mental Trauma

She displays histrionic traits and suffers from hypomania, as well as insomnia. She struggles with binge eating thanks to food insecurity in her childhood. She hears voices in her head related to her demonic ancestry.

Morality & Philosophy

  • Prioritize yourself.
  • Family is not determined by blood.
  • Do not follow rules and traditions blindly; if it doesn't make sense, it isn't important.
  • Ignorance is not bliss.
  • Don't compromise or betray yourself for somebody else's comfort.
  • There isn't enough time to waste being angry, bitter, or miserable.
  • Taboos

  • Reliance on legal authorities to settle personal affairs; retaliation should be carried out by the wronged personally.
  • Cooperating with legal authorities or outsiders against brothers/crew/family.
  • Getting involved in a long-term monogamous relationship.
  • Personality Characteristics


    Inami is motivated by a deep love of freedom, as well as by the pursuit of wealth and adventure. Compelled to escape the helplessness she felt throughout the hardships of her childhood, she seeks out the strength and security offered by knowledge, experience, and material wealth, and find the idea of being tied down to anything - or anyone - stifling.   She enjoys the company of others and leads a hedonistic, feel-good lifestyle.

    Savvies & Ineptitudes

    Inami is adept at utilizing magical and martial prowess together effectively in combat, and she is very good both at identifying and casting magic. She can use wand, rods, staves, and various other magical devices with ease.   Charming and often charismatic, she is no stranger to using intimidation when diplomacy fails, but her magnetic personality draws others to her. While she is clever and intelligent, that does not mean common sense comes to her easily - wisdom is a trait that she struggles with. In addition, she can miss small details and is not particularly perceptive.

    Likes & Dislikes

    Outgoing and a thrill-seeker, Inami is quick to laugh and more than happy to accompany just about anyone on a night of plundering or partying - regardless of whether she received an invite or not. Casually affectionate, she enjoys intimate encounters and pet names, and she doesn't care for people who are too reserved, pessimistic, or easily offended.   She enjoys reading, especially arcane textbooks, and has fun tinkering with magical devices.   She's sensitive to hot (especially muggy) weather.

    Virtues & Personality perks

    Inami is authentic, adventurous, and confident, lively, good-natured, optimistic, and playful. She is brave, curious, and open to novel experiences, and good-humored even in the face of danger. Despite her hedonistic tendencies, she is a good leader, and accepts responsibility without complaint.

    Vices & Personality flaws

    She can be tactless, meddlesome, and dismissive, usually unafraid to speak her mind and not impressed by people who take life too seriously. She is self-indulgent and impulsive, with a habit of sexual promiscuity, as well as social drinking and drug use.

    Personality Quirks

    Inami has a tendency to laugh in inappropriate situations, and sometimes snorts when laughing. She has a habit of using "like" as a filler word, and while she can do quick mental math, she gets confused counting on her fingers.


    Contacts & Relations

    Family Ties

    Social Aptitude

    She is confident and outgoing, and quick to befriend others. People tend to gravitate to her thanks to her positive, seemingly laid-back attitude, her playful demeanor, and her sense of humor.
