Background/History: If the rumors are true, Arisu Koroi was literally born into the espionage business. Her mother works for the Ministry of Defense, while her father is said to be a British Intelligence agent who spent some time in Japan roughly 18 years ago. At any rate, Arisu grew up on tales of her father’s exploits (both in and out of Japan) and soon decided she was going to be a secret agent, just like her dad. With that in mind, she began to take judo at school and nearly drove her mother to distraction practicing her “spy skills” (surveillance, breaking and entering, gathering evidence, and so on). Eventually, Arisu’s exploits brought her to the attention of the highly-secretive Ministry of Defense agency Strike Force Zero, who recruited Arisu to be one of their undercover agents.
Arisu quickly proved to be an apt pupil of anything SF0 had to offer, and has gone on to become one of their top field agents. Her mission is simple—she’s a Schoolgirl Secret Agent. As everyone knows, the typical Japanese High School is a hotbed of paranormal activity, be it invading aliens to supernatural incursions, not to mention the seemingly endless hordes of dueling martial artists, mad scientists, black magicians, Yakuza, and feuding ninja clans. It’s up to Arisu to find out what’s going on, who’s doing it, and how to stop it. Along the way she usually ends up organizing the local students into some sort of “ghost-busting club,” creating a nationwide resistance force against Japan's never-ending paranormal and supernatural threats.
Personality/Motivation: Simply put, Arisu is having the time of her life. She loves the fact she's a secret agent, and delves into each mission with virtually unmatched enthusiasm and gusto. She is very much the bubbly teenager type and tends to be popular with both her teachers and her fellow students. Of course, this is mostly an act (mostly). Arisu recognizes the seriousness of her mission as well as the responsibility that goes with it, and tends to act accordingly. Most of the time. Perhaps her biggest flaw is her feelings of youthful immortality and invulnerability. She often tends to investigate strange happenings far too deeply before calling for back up, and more than once has ended up over her head, surviving only though the use of her skills, a little luck, and straight shooting.

Powers/Tactics: When dealing with Things Man Was Not Meant To Know (and other horrors), Arisu's primary plan is to lure the threat into a trap that has been carefully designed to neutralize and/or eliminate the problem. Of course, since she often enlists the local science club’s help in building said trap, her success rate has fluctuated widely (the term “Rube Goldberg Machine” comes to mind). If that doesn't work, she will switch to “Plan B,” which is drawing Kirei Kuroi (“Black Beauty,” a.k.a. her Desert Eagle .50 Magnum automatic pistol) and opening fire. And if that doesn't work, she'll switch to “Plan C,” which is setting things on fire. If that doesn’t work, she'll try Plans A or C again, just this time with more explosions. If Arisu is anything, it’s adaptable.
In addition to her proficiency with the gun, Arisu is a jujitsu black belt, and is skilled in a wide assortment of espionage techniques.
Appearance: Arisu stands 5’3” with an athletically trim build. She has shoulder-length brownish-black hair, brown eyes, and Eurasian features that heavily favor her mother’s side. She dresses in whatever’s the required high school uniform, although hers are often lined with a thin layer of armored reinforcement and are tailored to hide her handgun (and provide sufficient pockets for her seemingly endless supply of extra magazines).
Designer's Notes: Blame Robert Dorf for this. I sent him the picture, he sent me a short description. I then grabbed the idea and took off without once looking back. To be honest, the character mostly built itself, all I did was come up with the colorful skill descriptions. Oh, and yes I, did steal “Strike Force Zero” from White Wolf. I used it because the name was convenient. Use what ever you like, the more convoluted the better.
I don't recommend down-powering Arisu, although you could chip away at her skills here and there and bring her down to 250 points. To make her more powerful give her a better STR, DEX, CON, OCV, DCV, a Damage Class with her martial arts, and a Ranged Martial Art to be used with her pistol. Oh, and in a few years, when she gets too old to be a schoolgirl, her cover will switch to schoolteacher (probably of English).
