Lamina was not an imposing figure in stature alone, standing at just under six feet in height she was above the height of an average woman but was not so tall as to inspire one to feel a great amount of fear from simply seeing her. Her build was toned but remained hidden by the old black suit of armor emblazoned with a white lotus and red axes in its center that served as a reminder of her Legion and her dreams for a future where Ninjutsu was harnessed strictly for the betterment of the world rather than one’s own personal gain or power. Her armor only consisted of gauntlets, along with the broken breastplate, armored greaves and sections of metal sewn onto a black dress which served to cover the rest of her body save for her face which was mostly unobscured by the armor which covered her nearly from head to toe.
Lamina’s face was pale, and her reptilian amber eyes and dark aura that emanated from her as a result of her bloodline and heritage made her almost seem like a member of the Yokai Clan, however, the distinction was easy enough to tell once one realized that she had no wings nor horns yet instead had scales concealed beneath her armor in sparse amounts. The other easy way to tell, of course, was the fact that the old and broken shield she wore on her back was still carrying the distinctive emblem of the Yoru Clan on its back. Her hair was tied into a bun, with bangs falling to either side of her face and stopping just above her eyes in the center, tidy and professional looking as to represent the fact that she was a professional soldier if nothing else – despite everything that had happened to her.
She still even carried an old, ancient black sword on her hip that was clearly too large for an average Human and perhaps even the woman herself. Lamina knew, however, that this blade was past the point of usability and its sharpness had long ago worn away yet she kept the blade on her person as a memento and because it was a gift that had been passed down throughout her family from her great-grandfather that had been lauded – to her family at least – as a hero of the Loyalist faction and pillar of the Yoru Clan thanks to being a leading reason for the Loyalist victory at Dragon’s Tooth long ago.
It was because of all these oddities of her appearance, most likely, that she attracted so many strange stares and worried glances even from the Humans that wandered the streets of the poorer district of Kumogakure. It was not only that she stood out, but the open anger that seemed to radiate from the Dragoness was something that made many feel uncomfortable around her.
She too felt uncomfortable around these Humans, not simply because they were Human and thus had a history of oppressing or rejecting her people for their unnatural or unusual ways, but it was because of them, she felt, that her brother and sister had turned against her those many years ago and resulted in Lamina’s near-death. So when one openly jeered at her, Lamina felt herself acting before she realized what she was doing and found herself charging headlong at a man who had just moments ago spoken out, slamming into him with sufficient enough force that - even though her body was weakened due to the Sickness - she managed to send him smashing into a wall as he then slumped to the ground weakened and barely conscious, shouting at the top of his longs and summoning several other Humans who began to gather around in a semi-circle near Lamina. She counted a total of four individuals who all seemed to be preparing rudimentary weapons in order to gang-up on the admittedly somewhat surprised Dragoness who blinked and looked to them with a moment of confusion before realizing completely what had just occurred.
It had been so long, she thought that she had it under control – but it seemed that her Dragon’s Blood was still strong within her and that it had managed to cause the woman to lose herself for a moment and now she found herself in a struggle that was likely to end badly if she remained, even for an experienced soldier such as herself. She was still weak, her body had not been retrained after all, and now she found herself wondering what needed to be done; though only one option seemed clear.
This was about to be a fight for her life, and unless she had any help or something diffused the situation ahead of time, it was going to end badly for all involved.
