STARTING PLANET: Earth
At a glance, Puddey is a sporty, fit young woman with a tomboyish appearance. Her black hair is short and , and her most common outfits are athletic wear. All of her outfits put her legs on full display, and she has a fondness for pairing shorts with longer sleeved tops or jackets. While her build is slender and modest by nature, years of training have padded it out with muscle. In particular, though of average height for a woman, she has relatively long, shapely and strong legs.
Furthering her 'tomboy' appearance is how she carries herself with a casual confidence, and the blunt, simple manner in which she speaks. She rarely makes an effort to disguise her feelings on a subject, speaking her mind and expressing herself openly and without hesitation or uncertainty. She has a tendency to ignore decorum, most often reflected in her demeanor and speech. Often she puts her feet up when sitting, or thoughtlessly intrudes on the personal space of others. When talking she uses the simplest words she can, putting no effort into proper pronunciation and giving the impression of being uneducated or crude.

A bit over twenty-two years ago, a well-mannered young woman by the name of Kanon married a rough and tumble young man called Habiki. Very shortly after, Puddey was born. Raised primarily by her mother, who took to a traditional housewife role, they both were supported financially by her father's work as a professional kickboxer. Both parents did as well as could be expected in their roles for such a mismatched pair, but it became clear early on that Puddey looked more to her father as a role model than her mother. She was always fascinated by watching him train, even when she was too young to really comprehend it. This fascination would develop into a genuine interest in the sport, and though it was unconventional, her father was overjoyed enough by her interest in following his footsteps that her began to teach her the basics of general fitness and martial arts.
This caused some conflicts with her mother early on in her childhood, and she would always express some irritation and frustration with her daughter as she continued to adopt more and more of her father's mannerisms. She did, however, manage to impart the importance of responsibility, looking ones best, and taking pride in oneself. Meanwhile, her father's crude speech patterns and general disregard for decorum would make up the bulk of her social behavior. One consequence of this is that she always found herself more inclined to hang around with boys than other girls her age, and from that tendency arose her longtime status as a tomboy. Another consequence was that her general performance in school was mediocre, due to a lack of interest and her own father disregarding the subjects as being of any value. This more than anything was a great source of conflict with her mother, teachers, other students, and even neighbors at times, but it was ultimately decided as unimportant given she was on track to become a professional kickboxer like her father.
Despite the social crudeness inherited from her father, she had more or less as many friends growing up as any other child did. However, her family often moved about West City and as a sad side effect many of her childhood friendships fell by the wayside. Her continued participation in martial arts classes and other physical sports and activities always found her new friends, however, and to her it more importantly brought about fresh rivals to compete with. This competitive spirit would see her through numerous tournaments, many of which she performed admirably well and a few of which she managed to claim first or second place. When she was in her mid-teens, her father began to take steps to make use of his connection to the professional kickboxing industry to set up her future kickboxing career. It was also around her time that her admiration towards her father and other professional practitioners of the martial arts turned aggressively competitive.
The drive to overcome and prove herself against the older generation was met with a lot of humor and good will from the older generation, but also scorn and disdain. Some assumed she was simply riding on her father's coattails, but the truth was her competitive drive against him and his friends proved to be a significant contribution to the development of her abilities as a fighter. Though she was capable of winning matches and earning a living, only a few years of this lifestyle left her feeling as if she might be stagnating as a fighter. There were still those more skilled than she was, but she had little agency when it came to fighting who she wanted when she wanted, and had to follow the whims of the industry. Further, while she had her 'wins' in sparring sessions, her father remained a hurdle she could not surpass entirely. At this point in time she began to consider setting out on a 'fiction-style' adventure around the world in pursuit of martial arts mastery.
It was during a 'test run' of her plan to travel the world that she would awaken her Ki. Not a believer of the supernatural and only barely more spiritually sensitive than most, she nonetheless always held a fondness for stories about the martial artist's journey to self-mastery and enlightenment through their art. So, to see if there was any merit to the idea, she decided to take a 'training trip' for a week in one of the forests of West City. Many myths and superstitious beliefs were associated with these forests, but she was certain there was no danger of such outlandish things as that being true. This carelessness would nearly lead to her death, were it not for the power sleeping inside her.
Only a few days into her trip, in the midst of a training routine she had devised for herself, a red Orgre attacked. At the time all she could see was trees and rocks being smashed and shattered and tossed about, with only a vague presence she could barely make out as the source. This slight awareness and her physical fitness saved her life, allowing her to attempt to flee and defend herself. Unfortunately it was to minimal success, and she soon found herself in a 'do or die' moment. Unable to run and refusing to simply be killed by a mysterious being in the middle of the woods, she relied on the skills and strength she had honed through years of effort and training.
After her encounter with the Ogre in the forest, a return to her normal life would have been impossible for her. With new heights and possibilities revealed to her, that she had only previously considered the realm of fiction and myth, she felt drawn and obligated to pursue them. She attempted to showcase her new abilities to her father, but when he demonstrated no capacity to see these abilities and dismissed her demonstration as a practical joke, she found herself briefly disappointed. This disappointment would quickly vanish however, when she came to the conclusion that only those who had a certain level of martial mastery could obtain these abilities and awareness. This belief led her to conclude that she really and truly had surpassed her father and the rest of those around her as a martial artist, and that if she was going to continue to improve she would need to seek out new and greater challenges.
So, she began making plans to seek out the 'secret masters' of the world that could teach her more about the world, to find new rivals and perhaps even defeat more beings like the one that had attacked her. Unwilling to wait around to save up money or travel in the 'slow and proper' way, her profession took a backseat as she invested all of her time into seeking out more supernatural beings and training her own powers as best she could.
