60th Hunger Games: Nami Sada by Jazz-Rhythm 60th Hunger Games: Nami Sada by Jazz-Rhythm
:iconthehungergamesoct:
I've been wanting to try out an open medium OCT, so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to experiment with different storytelling methods. I also want to see if I can try working with more basic plot lines, so let's hope I can stick to something simple this time o.o


Name:
Nami Sada

Age:
12

District:
5 (second pick: 6, third pick: 3)

Health issues:
Due to her morbid fear of the Hunger Games, she develops an onset of panic attacks after she is Reaped.

Body type:
Short, well-fed, still maintains much of her baby fat, little muscle

Eye Colour:
Brown

Hair Color:
Black

Strengths:
-A basic understanding of geology that helps her identify natural hazards
-Has a knack for predicting the weather
-Some experience in martial arts and hand-to-hand combat thanks to her father Omothay, who works as a security officer (however, Nami shows a lot more finesse in training than she does in actual combat. Nami is likely to forget or abandon what she's learned when it comes to an actual fight)

Vulnerability/ies:
-Utterly terrified of death and the idea of death
-Physically weak
-Easily panics when in danger - very prone to bursting into tears
-No experience in using weapons
-Gullible

Family
Father: ???
Mother: A Japanese woman who is a mystery to Nami
Adopted father: Omothay Mactíre
Adopted mother: Randashi Mactíre
Adopted brother: Eyado Khothson

Background:
Nami is an illegitimate child adopted by her current parents when her biological mother couldn't care for her. After giving Nami up, her mother's last request to Omothay and Randashi was to preserve Nami's cultural identity and not allow her to come under the influence of the materialistic ways of the Capitol. Though not Japanese themselves, Omothay and Randashi did their best to raise Nami with watered-down Japanese values from what they could find in scarce historical texts, encyclopedias, and other Japanese individuals within District 5. However, with Panem mostly cut off from other countries and ethnicity meaning so little within the districts, Nami is more likely to identify herself as a child of Panem rather than Japan.
After they adopted Nami, Omothay and Randashi lost all contact with her mother. They have no idea where she went, and they have little to tell Nami about where her mother came from or what her backstory was.
Nami had the fortune of growing up in reasonable living conditions. Hunger has never been a concern for her with her parents making a good income and District 5 being stocked with just enough food to feed its citizens. Nami has an especially strong relationship with her older brother Eyado, who is also adopted and practically an idol to her.

Significant other:
None.

Personality:
Upon her arrival to the Capitol, Nami became incredibly withdrawn, viewing everyone as a threat. She dislikes confrontation and will try to avoid eye contact or dialogue. When she has to talk, it's in a soft and quavering voice. Despite being wary of other people, she is very dependent and feels too insecure to be alone - she's almost to the point where she requires someone to be with her at all times. She openly shares what's on her mind to those she trusts, which are people who have proven to have no intent to harm her. Nami prefers to please people, so when she's in the middle of a conflict, she will do what she can to come to a compromise. Above all, she constantly wants assurance, that everything will be okay, that she will live and return home.

Token:
A silver pocket watch. Nami's mother gave it to her adoptive parents as a small token of gratitude for taking in her daughter. It appears to be broken with a crack on its lens and the hands stuck at 4 o'clock.

Dude. I'm taller than she is. Thisneverhappens

I've never read the Hunger Games, but I've at least seen the movie so I can kind of put this character in the situation. I worry for her and her withdrawnness. XD

Also, I'm so sorry for taking so darn long to look at your stuff D:

Pfft, well she is only 12 xD

Poor thing is the smallest tribute in the tournament, though. All the big kids are gonna murder her.

And that's totally fine! It's not like you're required to look through my stuff, although I'm happy you took the effort to do so anyways :'D

She's cute, but kind of pathetic. T^T I think Riven and Nami might get along (after the first bouts of paranoia, of course). :P If we both get accepted, do you think Nami would be up for an alliance with the D6 tributes?

P.S. You'd better finish Nami's Reaping soon; December 5th is creeping upon us! :iconnoeswooplz:

Oh yes, completely pathetic, almost useless in fact. As far as alliances go, even though Nami would like to have all the help that she can get, I want to see how the tournament progresses after auditions before I commit my character to any alliances.

And eeee, I'm aware of the deadline oAo At this point I'm hoping for an extension, which I've been told is likely, but if not, I can fall back on a short written entry and hope it's passable

He's also her adopted dad in their original canons! =P

But he won't really have a major role in this story, I'm sorry to say
