If patience were a talent, Yuka would have at least one thing she was good at. Besides that she doesn't have anything she particularly likes a lot or is talented at. Realizing this about herself, Yuka often considers herself plain, and many could agree that she isn't particularly unique in any way. Because of this, she often worries about her future, but such is common among people her age. What could she become? What does she have to bring to this world? Questions such as these often occupy her head as she sits in classroom chairs during lazy school days. She g
oes into periods of negativity and gloominess, though most of the time she distracts herself with people so she can ignore her own worries and insecurities. Mild-mannered and lax,
Yuka isn't one to speak unless spoken to, but she does enjoy a good conversation. Being able to listen and observe others are one of her favorite pastimes, putting her more on the extroverted side. She finds other people vastly more interesting than herself. She's easy to get envious when observing the unique qualities about others, but often releases her feelings by voicing them right away. Over time she has learned to turn envy into admiration, though in higher degrees it's still quite difficult for her. Has developed a fondness for accessories; ornamenting herself makes her feel less plain. Yuka adores her fraternal twin brother, and worries for him frequently. Yuka is quick to try new things, but often doesn't keep up with them when she starts to feel disheartened (especially when she observes people who seem way better at said thing). Overall she likes filling her life with interesting things, hoping that one day she'll find something to be passionate about. Likes:

As far as Yuka can remember, her family has always lived in Koshu in the same 2 bedroom house. From birth, Yuka always had Sakurai Yuuki for a friend. Yuka's hot-headed fraternal twin often found himself in trouble in his youth and Yuka always found herself stumbling after him with worry. As kids, Yuka and Yuuki often shared many of their things since their lower-middle class family didn't have the funds to buy 2 separate sets of shoes and clothes every year.
Yuka's mother worked as manager for a resale store. As an unexpected side effect, Yuka's wardrobe outside of the school uniform consists entirely of pre-owned articles. She's learned to appreciate their charm though. Yuka's father works as a middle-school Japanese teacher, who shares Yuuki's enthusiasm for cooking. Overall their family life is pretty quiet. Yuka's mother enjoys taking trips to the city, but her heart is always back in Koshu. Yuka is often nagged on by her mother to try to new things. Yuka's learned to just do what her mother wants, besides, she doesn't mind finding new things to do.
In middle-school, Yuka started realize that people around her were good at certain things. She reflected upon herself and realized that she was pretty boring as a person. For a few days she dwelled in her room for hours, already quite unlike herself at that point. Noticing this, Yuuki presented Yuka with a barrette, adorned with two flowers. With this, she would feel less plain. Or so her brother tried to explain through grumbles."Why would you buy green flowers?" Yuka asked upon receiving it."That's not pretty at all," She joked. Regardless of the color, she was touched, and wears it daily to this day.
