The Light within the Shadow
During the time of the late Silver Millennium, Tomoko was born to the Earl and Countess of Sinope, the Jovians shadow moon. These two were part a long legacy of spies, information gathers, messengers, and yes, even the occasional assassination. The emerald green eyed, light brown-haired babe had been born into the family in charge of assisting the Jovian Royal court of doing what was necessary, when necessary. For better of for worse, this little light was going to be a part of the shadows.
Little Tomoko seemed way to innocent to be tasked to do what could be very heinous deeds. However, the family noticed her abilities were already outstanding when she would play hide-and-seek among her peers and even older kids… and they could not find her. When the adults would join in, it was as if she hid within the shadows themselves, as even they could not locate the little girl. She would giggle when they grew frustrated with their own inability to find her, almost giving herself away, but she learned to be able to laugh without a soul noticing.
She picked up to various weapons quite easily and with the grace of a cat, effortlessly used them such as the ninjato, the shuriken, and even the dart gun, fashioned as a flute. Because she had such an innocent face to her, she would “accidently” blow out a dart at her target, hitting them without missing a beat. Who could suspect such an innocent looking girl who just wanted to make things better with music? She never changed her beat either, even when her target went stumbling around and would expire nearby. The ensuing chaos though would see her disappear into the shadows, a situation where a young girl would “disappear in fear” as many would write it off.
In order to gain a better understanding though, she needed to go to the elite Jupiter Royal Academy, where there classes specifically to hone her abilities. These were taught by former Nemesian Shadows, though she had other classes with the rest of the student population. It was here she found a kindred spirit in Coral Ellis, and these two would play pranks on the rest of the students. Very rarely did these two get caught, but those few times she was punished by her Nemesian instructors… not for the action, but for being caught. This was an important lesson that she needed to learn.
When it came time for her to do the Ta’lotah, she failed it… twice. It was not lack from ability but moving away from her strengths during the final match. She would only get one more shot at it, and she was quite frightened at this point. This is when her friend Coral introduced her to Jasmine Serferi and the champion of Jupiter, the Jupiter Knight himself Kevin Junia. These three had already passed their Ta’lotah challenges, but here was Tomoko on the verge of not being successful in hers. However, she had powerful allies now in her corner that would make sure she would succeed.
This is where she came to see the sweet side of the kingdom’s champion, who while pushed her to her limits, was very supportive and sympathetic. She heard the rumors of the Crown Princess and him being a couple though apparently not officially and found herself wishing that she were the Princess. She was an incredibly lucky person to have such a Champion and man there by her side. The more they worked together, the stronger her feelings became for him. That didn’t stop her from having a boyfriend, but she found herself fantasizing about Kevin, sometimes incorporating the Princess in those daydreams, at times where she was the Princess, and sometimes her boyfriend would be included.
The time came for her to engage her final Ta’lotah, and this time there would be no arrogance. Just pure determination, and a drive to live up to her friends training. When she got to the final challenge, the knight was quite good, and was prepared for the shadow warrior. It looked like the knight had the upper hand and knocked Tomoko to the ground. He pointed his sword at her, looking to be the end of her Ta’lotah and a third failure. He asked her surrender and she only smiled… and laughter came from behind him. His eyes went wide in horror as a dagger went towards his throat, and he realized his mistake. He yielded and the blade went down, and behind him was the actual Tomoko in a Sailor fuku., awakened as Sailor Sinope.
It was explained that she left a shadow copy of herself on the ground as she disappeared into the shadows. The knight had no way of knowing she could do such a feat, and that she had made it look she was losing the whole time to let down his guard. She was able to pass her final without really doing too much, unlike Jasmine. She went and thanked her friends for all their help, planting a kiss on Kevin’s cheek and winking at him. She apparently whispered to him that she owed Kevin big, and would pay him back in an amazing way.
Jupiter’s Shadow of Light
21st Century Earth
Light Reborn, Not Yet the Shadow Satellite Senshi
Tomoko Allison was reborn in Yokosuka, Japan to an American male sailor named Richard Allison and a traditional Japanese female named Ai Kashiwagi. Her father, who rose to the position of Chief Engineer on an American destroyer, made sure he was there for his daughter's birth despite the trouble that was brewing when Queen Beryl and Firestar launched their assault on the Kanto plain. Richard remained in Yokosuka, allowing Tomoko a chance to have some stability even though she was a Navy brat.
Tomoko grew up with a love for hiding, and her mother noticed this. Ai's father, Tomoko's grandfather, was well trained in the art of ninjitsu and it would seem that her daughter was developing a natural talent, a talent that her grandfather would make sure to cultivate. It was only natural that her gracefulness allowed her to accomplish feats, that most would think impossible.
Hitomi and the Temple of Tokugawa
Awakening the Shadow
Tomoko went to The Hotel, playing a crazy game of hide and seek with her best friend. She was able to blend into the shadows of the bar area of the Hotel quite easily, but Coral's tracking skills were quite good. She watched as Coral Ellis asked some of the patrons of the HOTEL if they had seen the one hiding amongst the shadows. All of them said they had not, unfortunately, but there was a patron that had seen Tomoko. Ryoko Nasino was hiding in her own shadow, and the Ninja Senshi was the Queen of the Shadows. Tomoko had no idea though that she had been found as she watched what transpired. Coral started to stutter around David O`Cain, a situation that perplexed Tomoko, as Coral didn't let anything bother her. Then when Juniper Aki touched Coral, Coral stood up and then collapsed, causing Tomoko to break her cover and catch her friend.
Juniper was a doctor and explained what happened to her. Helping Juniper carrying the unconscious Coral into Suite 1808, she was quite impressed with what she saw. And then she met a great beauty... Makoto Kino, Queen of Jupiter and Sailor Jupiter. Tomoko, however, didn't believe the part about her being a Queen, even though she was so beautiful, she definitely looked the part in her eyes. And she believed the part about her being a Sailor Senshi even less... until Makoto touched her, and it was like something in Tomoko's brain snapped and a door got kicked open. Tomoko had already put Coral on the bed and when she had gained her memories, immediately went to one knee and bowed to the Queen.
Then Kevin Junia walked into the room and immediately she gasped. Was this Jupiter Knight in front of her, the chosen champion of Jupiter? He and the other Sailor Knights were the subject of her daydreams, both in her previous life and the current one. She was often jokingly referred to as the Daydreaming Senshi by her fellow Satellites in the past, and it seemed her personality hadn't changed too much. Her transformation wand appeared in front of her and she gratefully accepted it. No one had to explain to her the consequences of accepting or refusing it, as she was ready to embrace her duty again.
The Daydreaming... Baby???
While Coral was still down and out, Tomoko went down to the bar area of the HOTEL and one of the occupants was handing out candy. She noticed that both Sean Collins and Kevin were downstairs but fell into her daydreams about the two Sailor Knights and didn't see their apprehension to the very candy she was to partake of. As soon as she was about to eat it, Kevin realized and tried to warn her off, but too late. She ate it and vouched for it... and a few minutes later she had shrunk from teenage girl to little baby. She was scooped up by her liege, but soon after passed off to Juniper after making a... mess. However, Kevin and Makoto helped Juniper take care of the baby Tomoko.
The effects of the candy would only last for 24 hours, and while Kevin was holding her in his arms, she reverted to her normal size and age. Her clothes, however, did not cover her, as they did not grow with her. Kevin was now holding a very naked and very shocked teenager in his hands. All the inhabitants of 1808 saw this and immediately knew what was about to happen. The King calmly set her down, feet first and slowly backed away from the ever increasingly angered Tomoko. While still in her birthday suit, the redness of her anger covered her from head to toe, and she immediately grabbed the nearest item and tossed it at Kevin. She started yelling "ecchi" and "pervert" at him as she continued to toss items at him, causing him to immediately dash for the door and leap over the balcony, an 18-story drop. While Tomoko was shocked to see this, her anger was still very much prevalent.
Juniper and Makoto had some clothes nearby, a plain, loose fitting t-shirt and some track shorts, which she quickly put on and gave chase. Juniper and Makoto were both in shock at this moment, and this situation actually snapped Coral out of her self-loathing funk for a few seconds so that she could laugh. Tomoko was about to tackle and pummel her King, when Yuri Junia, the daughter of Kevin and Makoto, wrapped her arms around the irate teenager's waist to stop the potential assault. After some explanations, Tomoko finally calmed down and relaxed. While she was still embarrassed at being revealed to Kevin, especially in such a manner, he gave her some advice. He told her that she was quite beautiful and not to have self-doubts, and she was every bit as worthy of being with one of the Sailor Knights or anyone else she chose. Tomoko's heart skipped a beat at such advice and gained a bit of actual love for him and a lot of admiration. He was a worthy person to serve and thought that her Queen was very lucky indeed to be the chosen one of the King.
She swore she would fight hard for those two, especially realizing that they took care of her in her time of greatest need... as a baby. She also swore not to eat questionable candy again, especially in the HOTEL.
The Shadow of Jupiter
She and Coral, who had her own situation to work out during Tomoko's baby time, were going to get their first mission. Tomoko looked forward to training, but Kevin wanted her to go to a fashion show in the Ginza District to help her feel better... about the "peep show." It was also part of another objective...
- Tomoko and Coral are known as the Giggling Duo at school, a nickname they gained due to the fact they always seemed to be giggling whenever the two are together. It seems that nickname was like the one they had in the Silver Millennium.
- Tomoko is often daydreaming about the Sailor Knights and her "unworthiness" whenever she sees them. That feeling does not stop her from thinking about them and her together (blush).
- Tomoko loves to hide in the shadows and has been doing so as a kid. She was very good at hide-and-seek... almost too good.
