[Image: A digital drawing of my character Tamiko Kimura. She is on her knees and raising a sword above her head preparing to strike. She is smiling and crying with blood trickling down the side of her head. There is a hand covered in blood reaching from the bottom of the picture.
Tamiko has fair skin, brown hair that is styled into a messy bob with side-swept bangs, and gray eyes. She is wearing a uniform that consists of a navy blue jacket with two gold buttons, white gloves, and black pants, boots, and belt. She is also wearing a white jacket that is clipped around her neck and flowing behind her so that it looks like a cape.
Her clothes and sword are covered with blood, and her reflection is showing on the floor. The background is of a gray, cloudy sky.]
“Does this count as repentance? I’m killing for good, for a noble cause, right? Then why do I still feel so awful? God, I can’t take this anymore! I don’t want to experience any more crushing guilt; I have to clear my conscience, and I’m sure that this is the way. I have to carry on and block out the pain! For the rebellion!”
