Ayako, was born your everyday fox, nothing special about her, But when the young kit's parents were killed by poachers she was left alone in the world to starve. One day an old wizard happened upon the dying fox and took her in. Raised in his tower the ambient magic flowed into her, gifting her. While she had little control over the magic it still granted her unusual abilities the most impactful being she stopped showing signs of age. Around the time she turned 100 years she had gained basic shape changing powers and could take the form of a mostly human girl. Having lived most her life in the wizard's tower she decided it would be best if she got out to see the world. So with a few supplies she said goodby to the wizard. it has been over 100 years since Ayako has seen the woods surrounding the quaint castle where she was born. In that time she has become a rather successful merchant even owning a small ship and crew. She brings many exotic goods from across the ocean.

The castle harbor is strangely busy today a ship bearing the symbol of some kind of golden bird on the sail is in port.
A large hairy man smelling of salt and wet socks slams into you with a barrel.
Sailor: "HEY, BRAT GET OUTTA HERE CAN"T YA SEE WERE MOVIN CARGO ITS NO PLACE FOR A KID TO PLAY!"
Apprentice A: "I'm sorry, I'll just leave now" (Leave scene)
Apprentice B: " I'm the WIZARD"S Apprentice I want to talk to the captain.
Sailor "HAHAHA Sure you are. Captain's right over there" he gestures to a small girl with tall ears and red hair. *mumbling* cap'n 'ill know ya lying*mumbling*
The red haired girl stands on top of a barrel shouting orders in some language you have never heard before.
Apprentice A: "Excuse me Captain?"
Captain: "What do you want kid? You look to poor to buy anything and to weak to work, I have no use for you." She turns back to her orders.
Apprentice, I am the wizard's apprentice, I came to see what all the commotion was.
Faster than the eye could see the captain pulls a strange tool from her belt and presses one end to the apprentice's throat. Then stops for a moment sniffs the air. "You are not lying." she narrows her eyes as she puts the tool away. "Fine you have my attention now. Call me Ayako"
Apprentice A: What was that thing you just pulled out?
Ayako: Inferno 9, its a tool invented in the far east, called a flintlock, that can put the power of a wizard's fireball in the hands of anyone, I have a few for sale if you want one, but they are VERY expensive. Inferno is my personal side arm I use to take the heads off of deal breakers and traitors.
Apprentice B: You know the wizard here?
Ayako: I knew A wizard from here, but you humans tend to live such short fragile lives.
Apprentice B: some other idiot thing the apprentice could say
