- "Pleasure is but that for which we all yearn, whether it be of the flesh or of drink or blood or gold or even fame measure all the same. For me? I just so happen to indulge in love of drink and love of flesh but come now, warmth of bed and warmth of flesh do go hand in hand. Of course, I'd rather you to be about my lips opposed to my hand; and 'tween my lips opposed to simply thinking of your flesh."

- "That whore keeps the sanctity of the churches whole while the sanctity of the churches are lodged down her throat."

Raiko, unlike her elder sisters, bears an overly physically attractive form. Oft wearing provocative clothing and found mostly in taverns. Her hair, a shade brighter than her elder siblings, is always set in some designer fashion to catch the eye. Opposed to her sisters, she loves the color of gold and oft wears the color proudly. With her oft revealing attire, loose tongue and well explored body known to many, Raiko is known to men and women throughout several towns and cities due solely to the warmth of her flesh and the pleasure of her tongue.
Biography of Raiko
Raiko, often called Rai for short, is the youngest of three sisters and is by far, the most sexually experienced. She was born a few minutes after midnight which is why her birthday is on the fifteenth of February instead of the fourteenth as her elder sisters are. Ever since she was a child she had clung to her sisters so that she could be just like them—Raisa, forever fearless and Raine, eternally elegant. Raiko made friends easy since most of the town she lived in had boys everywhere and most of them were well into their teen years while she was barely seven years old. Raiko knew not much about religion nor the pagan evils that people often spoke so she never cared to learn anything about either. Even though Raisa would warn her that older boys were and could be dangerous Raiko thought Raisa was jealous and all the years of wanting to be like her, were gone. At the age of thirteen, Raiko had lost her virginity to a childhood friend named Seth. He was only fourteen years old and Raiko had been his first but as far as she had been concerned, he was a professional with how good she felt after they had finished. Many times a week, she would go to Seth in order to feel him inside of her and a few times, Raiko had even tried sodomy despite Seth knowing it to be a sin. Her mother was surprised when Raiko brought news of leaving to be with Seth and as her mother warned her of the dangers of young love; Raiko refused to listen and accused her mother of wanting her to be miserable. Furthermore, she also blamed her mother for Raine leaving because of her mother’s restrictions that were placed on her as well. With arguing all the thirteen year old had been capable of, Raiko left and never came back.
Living her life with Seth, she had everything she needed; a home, food to cook, a good friend, a better lover, and most importantly, their fierce lovemaking. The two of them were rarely apart from one another and whenever neither of them could be found, it was a good guess as to what they were doing. Nearly every night, Raiko was brought to a climax and depending on how much energy Seth had left, possibly two to three times a night. Two years had passed since Raiko left home in order to live her life with Seth and it was one week after her birthday when he returned home with utter terror upon his face. Before she could ask, he told her that she needed to leave. Without a decent explanation he ran to their room and began to pack clothes and even a few knives; Raiko, beginning to believe that he had grown tired of her, began to weep and before he reemerged from their bedroom, Raiko was gone. Without a home, any food, love, personal protection, Raiko wandered the countryside aimlessly with her head hung and makeup smeared across her face. Her hair was unusually unkempt and the people that knew her didn’t even recognize her—this did nothing for how she felt as she took this as them ignoring her. A few days had gone by and it had been raining as she continued walking. Her mind was racing with questions as why he wanted her to leave and even more so, the fact that he wanted her gone at that instant. Had she done something wrong? Had she not satisfied him as he satisfied her? As her mind continually wore itself out a man in white robes came across her and immediately took her into shelter. After a few moments of silence, he gave her a towel and clean clothes and directed her to the bath where another woman would tend to her. After she had washed and dried herself, Raiko was helped into the skirt and blouse along with the silver boots that the other women had worn.
At dinner, Raiko was asked where she had been going but she did not speak. She did not even eat. She merely sat there. Seeing as it was going nowhere, she was then taken to her room where she spent most of her days in silence. Her food was brought to her and she ate little, often a few bites and then nothing else. It was often that the head priest would come to her room and check to see if she were willing to say anything, however, she said nothing. Raiko did nothing more than stare at the wall.
Months had now passed, and the priest had continued to come to check on her. It was almost heartwarming that he cared so much about her. Especially that he knew not much about her if anything. Raiko again locked herself within her mind. She was completely oblivious to Raisa being within the same room with her and when she did notice it was the last day she stayed at the church itself. Coming to her senses after nearly three years of remaining in an emotionally isolated state, Raiko sat and talked to the man who often visited her. He was kind and when he brought food for her, Raiko ate all of the food that was brought. She even drank some of the wine that he brought as well. Soon after they spoke, he invited Raiko to his quarters so that they could continue their conversation while he worked. Raiko had told him about Seth, her mother, her father and her sisters. He was somewhat surprised when Raiko said that she had sisters and not only that, she had spoken Raisa’s name. A fellow man of the cloth had knocked and apologized for intruding. The head priest excused himself for a moment and then two men spoke about something in hushed whispers. After a few moments, the other man left and they soon returned to their conversation. All the while, Raiko continued to drink the red wine which the head priest had offered her. It wasn’t long before the young girl was slurring with her words and laughing at practically anything that was said. After more conversation she found herself on his lap and not long after that, Raiko was in his bed.
It was within the morning when screams had awakened them both and as Raiko noticed that she had no form of clothing the priest had quickly gotten to his feet and told Raiko to dress quickly. In doing so, the priest himself dressed and quickly left the room. As he returned he told Raiko that her sister, Raisa, had killed the other priest which she had saw the night prior to this day. Raiko knew not what to say and not only that, but when he told her that she should leave, Raiko’s eyes began to swell with tears.
“Child it isn’t anything you’ve done wrong, it’s just for where we must now begin to protect our own. You can return after we have done that.”
Oddly enough, Raiko ran and hugged the towering man. In turn he placed one hand on her head and the other on her shoulder. To follow that, he also told Raiko not to tell any of the sisters what they had done and she promised not to tell a soul. The head priest gave her enough gold to fund her for nearly a month and told her that until she can return, she would need to be sure to look after herself and stay in a positive mood. Raiko agreed to do just that. He also pointed out to her that Parousia and Dalkia both have vast amounts of opportunities which would be beneficial to her. Raiko was then warned to stay away from anything to do with Halteese and Maletta.
Setting off for Parousia, Raiko bid her leave to the sisters of the church as well as the head priest and while no one was looking she cupped the priest’s phallus and stood on the tips of her toes to kiss him. Her natural demeanor restored, Raiko would look after herself and not only that, she would be sure to do whatever she believed to bring the head priest happiness.
Little did she know, she was nothing more than a sight for sore eyes as well as the ripest of fruit to be picked...
Love & Lust: Are twin Short Swords which she uses both with alarming dexterity. Over the time she has spent with her former beloved, her use with small knives has more use than simply cooking, gutting, cleaning, and hunting for food.
Pleasure & Bliss: Are simple daggers brought along just in case anything happens to Love or Lust.
Euphoria: Is the name of her single firing crossbow.
Raiko’s combat revolves around her movements. Basic it sounds but it is where she does not fight her opponent, but instead she predicts and guides their attacks away from her. In other words, she is nothing more than a "turtle" for the most part unless she is on the offensive. When she is offensive, Raiko continually dodges her opponent’s attacks much like Ky, the difference is that when they are tired from continuous attacks and an opening is sighted, Raiko draws her crossbow and ends the fight with a single arrow instead of stringing together multiple attacks which aren't meant to even kill her enemies.
Her mother and father were both killed, yet she is unaware of this.
Raiko is the youngest of three sisters.
Her favorite drinks are alcoholic liqueurs (fruit-based, flavorful).
Just as her elder sisters, she has extended family, yet she remains ignorant to the fact that some are still alive. In addition to that, Raiko blames her mother, Raina Zhirova (if she recalls right), for acting as the central medium for their family to be severed as it had been. After this initial accusation of course, Raiko left, only to be found years later within a church by Raisa, her elder sister.
Has severed ties to most of her family, however she still regards Raisa and Raine as her sisters.
Has seduced men whether they be married or not and has driven men to fight over the right to share a bed with her for the night.
Raiko suffers from an innate depression which has manifested itself after she was "thrown out" of her home by her former lover. She never realized that it was the fact that her mother (whom she has severed ties to) was under an attack and her father had been dragged through the streets while having stones striking his very being. Her ignorance and emotional turmoil have evolved into the lustful wanton of others. She feels that she is truly wanted, loved, and genuinely cared for while engaging in sexual acts no matter how disgusting they may be or if it be with her own gender. In the end she has become a slave to her own carnal fear of being abandoned and has forgotten most of her diverse and rational thought in the process.
Raiko is a highly sexual woman and will often use her charm to get what she wants. Often, during the war against Dalkia, she is in the company of several men and rarely women. This of course, leads to rumors, lies, the stripping of ranks as well as other form of demotions. Though Raiko receives none of these punishments, those whom she fornicates with are the ones who truly suffer.
Raiko is infertile. This means she is incapable of becoming pregnant and she herself has much upon the ware to tell that she is incapable of such. That said, the Silphium which E'laura sells and other forms of contraception she needs not worry of. She is proud of that as well, since if she needed to worry of contraception she would be in vast amounts of debt.
Raiko has traveled, just like Raisa, from their homeland and has wound up in Parousia. Of course, Raiko's travels were much, much more pleasant than Raisa's. Upon traveling, she enjoyed not only comfort but also pleasure as she traveled with a group of merchants and hired knights to protect the merchants and their wares. Women were also among the wares to be sold, as well as used with the exception of a select few.
Raiko hates being confused with her elder, high-strung, and virginal sister, Raisa. The times that she is, she has proven to be uncooperative, spiteful, and overall difficult to manage as well quell.
Towards the end of the war, Raiko begins a slow and bubbling relationship with Ky. However, she is still sleeping with Aeneas on the side. Many know that Raiko will betray Ky and quite frankly a few already know she has, yet she never bothers to mention anything to him whatsoever as she truly never had loving affections for him in the first place. All she truly wants is to see if a Japanese can bring her pleasure or not; beyond that, there is absolutely no specific draw to Ky whatsoever.
Act: I Relationships
Raiko is the younger sister of both Raine and Raisa. Raiko remembers little of her eldest sister Raine for Raine was fixed with her studies and the books she loved to read. It mattered to Raiko none when Raine was sent away for she rarely ever saw her let alone played with her when they were younger.
Yet, Raiko knows not the truth of the reason why Raine was sent away, let alone the fact that their mother and father have both been killed.
Raisa is the middle child and treats Raiko far less as a sister than she had in the past and this is due to her nature. Sleeping with different men throughout the week. At times, several during the day. Raiko cares none for Raisa's insults for she knows that Raisa means them halfheartedly.
She knows that Raisa can never truly hate her for she is her sister and Raisa holds a strong bond for family--unlike Raiko; whom uses this as an advantage whenever she sees fit to do so.
Ky was of a strange sort. He never pursued her but oft looked. He was Japanese and as far as she could recall, that was a flavor of man which she has yet to taste.
After making small introduction after conveniently timed coincidences of meeting, a small gesture of romance was enough to bait her game and successfully ensnare it.
Aeneas is her main tryst throughout the war against Dalkia. Along with several other men whom have come to know Raiko in a submissive and aggressively lustful fashion, he has brought her warmth several times during and after the war.
Even as Raiko had apparently settled with another, the two kept to their routine antics. Ky was one of the soldiers whom had not approached her in any fashion yet, despite her "emotional" tie to Ky, she still sits upon her knees, lips stained and mouth filled to bursting with emission from none other than Aeneas.
Surina Delgado is Raiko's commanding officer during the war against Dalkia. She made the mistake of confusing Raisa with Raiko and this is how and why Raiko is even in the military to begin with. Yet, despite Surina's embarrassment, Raiko proves her worth...in a non-sexual manner...for once.
Raiko is knowledgable about most of Dalkia's functions and also several other areas which provide perfect ambush and trap manuevers to use upon Dalkia's forces. This is the only reason why Surina has yet to remove Raiko from her squadron.
Riese is a silent woman with a widely unknown past. Listening in on Surina and Priya speaking she knows just as much as Surina does--that Riese was once an Assassin. At least, that is their thoughts. Of course, for her to be as such or was formerly as such would imply that she had never gotten over her lust for killing.
Despite that, Raiko and Riese do not get along. Several times throughout the war they are prepared to spill each other's blood in order to silence the other. Riese dislikes the harlotry of any being. Raiko dislikes the fact that Riese can easily chip away at her nerves without even trying.
E'laura pays Raiko little mind and practically ignores her whenever she speaks. It's rather interesting how she ignores her since E'laura distributes a knockoff of Silphium to those whom wish to fornicate without the risk of pregnancy. E'laura's high-class and ridiculous methods annoy Raiko to no end yet, Raiko has no problem breaking her bread or drinking her wine.
Definately not a problem to drink her wine. A fine wine cellar she has to...E'laura just doesn't know that Raiko has been inside of it.
Nicholas. Is an Italian. As far as Raiko knows, she has yet to taste that flavor or man and when she attempts to do such, he flatly rejects her. It had been years since she had been rejected yet, truth be told, it only made her want the Italian even more. They are on speaking terms yet, they are more distant than close.
Or rather, he is more distant while she attempts to be close. She knows full well that he dislikes being addressed by his first name yet she cares none and will even pester him until he grows tired of her voice.
Aliyah dislikes Raiko. Secondly, she hates Raiko (yes, you've read that right). Raiko knows the reason well enough. As often as Aliyah toils with her silly weapons and bats her eyes before Ky, Raiko, again, knows well enough; and she has no intention of letting Aliyah miss a single kiss, any and all flirtatious banter, touching, or anything else of the like which will draw on the jealousy of the Halteesean.
Even after she is done breaking Ky's fragile little heart, she may have the decency to drop the remains at Aliyah's feet for her to sweep up the tiny pieces of a ruined Kusanagi into a bowl to burn. Of course, by ruined, Raiko would have her way with him. Long and in various fashions before Aliyah would ever be lucky enough to even grace his Japanese "steel".
Gallagher is her drinking mate. They both have fun talking, joking, and of course, drinking. She has yet to bed the giant of a man yet when she does, she knows that he may be the one who will keep coming back. By far he is the tallest male she knows and as he stands out, literally, she intends to bed him while he is drunk enough to say yes. Or rather, drunk enough to whisk her off her feet and to his lodging.
Unfortunately, due to his size, Gallagher does not become drunk as quickly as most other men do and Raiko herself will be long intoxicated and slurring before he would. She has yet to find a way, yet, she knows she will.
