Loss- 4Hiatus History:
Prior to the assassination of the former daiymo and eventual civil upheaval within the SDL community, Axen was a battle ready participant in the infamous SDL Championships.
Fighting her way through powerful Elites, G-G Yakuza, and finally accepting her feelings towards her male comrade, Shado, Axen found herself in the final round against a very kind nunchuck yielding individual; Ran Hasegawa.
It was during this fight that she actually found someone on the battle field who she respected and even liked. So it was all the more traumatic when the SDLC building exploded with Ran Hasegawa inside. The cause? A trap set by the G-G Yakuza which Axen lit herself during her bout with Rex.
The funeral for the late Ran Hasegawa marked the end of Axen's secrets; at least the ones she kept from Shado who wouldn't comfort her till she finally spoke up. Needless to say she wouldn't allow herself to be black mailed and stubbornly refused him; still living with his friends in a uncomfortable silence.
The winter months were dark and cold after the daiymo's assassination. The long nights and gloomy days led Axen into a great despair, her conscious racked with guilt for causing the explosion which claimed Ran Hasegawa's life. She began to let herself waste away, her body weakening and eyes red rimmed as she clutched Hasegawa's remaining golden metal nunchaku.
Shado was ready to give up his quest for secrets just to hold Axen again when one day she came home with a guest...
The man who Shado was ready to assassinate for the Yakuza and confronted when the SDLC building was in flames;
Through a very tense and nearly fatal conversation many truths were told that night. By dawn a father swore to return for his daughter and a man held his lover for the first time in months.
The spring came gentle that year and with it a long hiatus from fighting, lying, and loneliness. The following months were the happiest of Axen's life despite the civil unrest and social upheaval that followed the assassination of the daimyo.
She was lucky enough to easily disguise herself as a simple commoner to avoid any wannabe SDL warriors who looked for the leagues prior champions, a fate she heard many of her fellow duelers suffered.
This however didn't mean she wasn't relentlessly training her mind and body. However her sword arm was no longer wielding a blade, but rather a single nunchaku left behind from a late friend.
