Character: Uru Takamura
Series: Shiawase Kissa Sanchoume/Happy Café
Character age: 16

Canon: Café Bonheur is a moderately popular coffee shop with a small, ragtag group of workers, including the yakuza-like "demon king" of a pastry chef Shindou (whose first name is disclosed on pain of death) and the deadpan Ichirou Nishigawa, who falls asleep when he's hungry. The newest member of the team and the heroine/narrator of our story is Uru Takamura, who recently moved out of home after mistakenly believing herself to be a burden for her newly remarried mother and stepfather, and became drawn to the café as a place "where even she can make someone happy". A energetic and friendly girl, full of smiles and wearing her heart on her sleeve, Uru quickly finds a niche in her new part-time job and brings to it a certain life that her generally unsmiling colleagues lack.

Tiny while being unusually strong, and something of a childish tomboy, Uru is also loud, excitable and not all that bright. As a "people-loving person", she is always eager to help others with their problems while having a tendency to bottle up her own. That's not to say she doesn't get irritated or lose her temper sometimes though, because she does, just usually at the defense of others. Optimistic almost to a fault, she barrels through life with infectious enthusiasm, passion and the delicacy of an elephant. Uru also has an earnest, often very loud appreciation of sweets and cakes and other delicious things, possibly because she usually fails at cooking anything more difficult than rice.

Sample Post:

Hello everyone! I'm Uru Takamura and I am filling in for Raggh-san's "Happy Fun Cooking Hour with Humans" today! Originally it was going to be the both of us, except I, erm, accidentally knocked into him and he kind of fell to pieces! I really don't know my own strength sometimes, ahaha ... I didn't feel right about continuing without him, but he was really worried about his audience and viewers though, and he insisted that the show must go on, so here I am. I'll try to do my best! Oh, and don't worry, folks: Raggh-san's being looked after and I'm sure he'll be back in no time! You should all send him some cards or messages to cheer him up. I mean, who knows? They might help to speed up his recovery, and wouldn't that be great!

Oh, I know! I'm going to show you all how to make a simple vanilla cake, and then maybe some of you can send one to him! You'd be surprised how just a bite of cake can bring a smile to someone's face! Also, this is something that one of my co-workers taught me, so it's bound to turn out delicious. ♥ ... E-Eh? What are those groans for? Hey, it's true! Shindou-san's cakes are always amazing, and anyway, how can you not like cake!? ... What do you mean by "braisin"? Oh, I get it: you guys must like raisins a lot, huh! Well, it is possible to add raisins to this recipe, you know, or some other fruit or chocolate. Lots of things go with vanilla, so don't be so quick to judge!

Anyway, now that I have your attention again, let's get to it, shall we? The oven's already been set, as you can see, as has this pan here. That means we just have to mix the ingredients! Okay, you can do this, Uru! Control! First we mix the sugar and butter together in a medium-sized bowl like this until they form a cream ... Perfect! Next is the two eggs. Carefully now; that's one, and that's-- OW! Hey, you, the toucan up the back! What's the big idea! We don't need extra eggs, especially not on me, thank you very much! Now kindly stop being a nuisance please.

Sorry about that! Where were we? After we beat in the eggs, we add the rest: that's vanilla, flour, baking powder and milk. That's it! I told you it was easy. Now we just mix everything together until we have our batter-- Look, Toucan-san, what is your problem!? What's the point of shouting "batter" over and over again when we're already at that stage! And what is that music? Oh, you just wait, once this is over, I'll take a swing at you SO WOULD YOU JUST STOP LAUGHING, YOU JERK!!

... Oooooooh crap, oops, aha. Ha. HaaaaaAAAAH TOUCAN-SAN ARE YOU OKAY!?! T-That batter didn't hurt too much, did it? Oh my god your wing is broken isn't it. We need to get you to a doctor -- o-or maybe a vet right away!! Can someone give me a hand instead of yelling "fowl", please!?

Name: Uru Takamura
Age: 16
Eyes: brown
Hair: brown
Height: 154 cm / 5' 1"
Weight: N/A
Bloodtype: N/A
Physical traits: She's canonically mistaken for a primary/elementary school kid, so feel free to think she's younger than she actually is.

What's okay to mention around her: Probably anything. I'd say no spoilers but her canon is kind of the slice-of-life kind and also obscure.

Abilities: Despite her size, she is very strong, and either she forgets this sometimes or she's clumsy. It's enough that she can break dishes, shake a painting off the wall if she hits it hard enough, form cracks on the floor if she slips, or sprain a person's arm if she falls on them (that last one might've happened to anyone, but you get the idea).

Secrets: I think her only secret is that she keeps a photo of her dad in her wallet(?); she doesn't show it to many people.

Note to psychics: ... Uuuuh, human? And a relatively cheerful one! She wants to be your friend. :D

Hugging/kissing/other non-violent physical contact: Hugs are okay. Kissing on the cheek is fine, but not lip-to-lip. She's probably get too embarrassed and shove you away first, meaning you'd probably hit the wall or the floor really had.

Fighting: ... Uuuh, may get back to you on that. But why would you want to fight her anyway, she's so cute. 8(

Can I shapeshift/bodyswitch/spit at/step on/etc?: For once, I say SURE WHY NOT. Her canon has slaptick comedy anyway.

Maim/murder/death: No plz.

Cooking: Fails at anything except rice, but she's been learning a thing or two from her friends, so she can sort of make muffins and rock candy and cookies. She probably needs to be supervised though, as she tends to need reminders of controlling her strength, or someone to catch the batter when she tries to stir too hard. 8D
