She is a young girl with a long black hair braided into four tails, a long pair at the back side and a short pair at the front, resting on her shoulders. Her eyes are yellow, and her ears and tail bear resemblance to a snow leopard. She usually wears a white dress with red and black pattern, adorned with a yellow and pink belt, and a white coat with red pattern. However in her more grown form, bustier than her smaller version by miles, her attire consists of elegant red and black hayori, frilly in some parts with imperial designs and white outlines on certain features of her wear, gold earrings on her ears, thick silver bracelets on her wrists.

Anju is actually a created demi-human with the genetic template of the previous Mikado's real daughter, Chii. The previous Mikado pumped every ounce of knowledge, structure etc, to make sure Anju was truly the PERFECT heir to take over Yamato. Naturally, outside of only one other, Anju is the strongest.
With more secrets made into her birth, she still possesses a tremendous amount of potential. When she was small, all she knew was the imperial walls. Munechika, her guardian, would always explain everything that was on the outside. Yet hearing the stories and reading only the finest books, when constantly forced to study, only fueled her mischievous side. Many times she would sneak out, only to be harshly punished by her very guardian.
At that time as well, Oshtor would always tell her stories to aid in quelling her nature to keep her on the right path. Luckily she listened to him mostly due to her infatuation. One day on her normal moment of having snuck out, she met Haku. From there her world unraveled. Her naivety, one day, almost cost Oshtor his life, in an attempt to garner his attention. She then learned just how much power and weight she carries, never believing Haku once when he told her "You can sneeze and someone can lose their home."
Time passed and she had a plot against her that almost took her life.. A poison left her voiceless, in pain and almost a puppet to the mastermind after her fathers death. Haku and the others saved her. She then hid at Oshtors homeland, Ennakamuy, regained her strength and vowed to regain her throne from the imposters who had started it all. Each day was an experience, pushing Anju into the woman she is now. The weight of a life, hearing Haku's death, what people mean to her and what it means to be a rulers with a kind hand. even when tragedy fell on Yamato after reclaiming it from Raiko the Sage, her friends boosted her will and picked her back up. Fighting a false god to even a real one, had done nothing but temper her resolve for a better future.

Now Anju stands proudly as the ruler of Yamato, overcoming any storm that had once plagued her nation. While more storms can arrive past the horizon and even test who she is now, she has no fear that she will win. In fact, she knows for a FACT she will win. After all....
"Let the earth tremble at my name! I am the Mikado of Yamato! The Divine Scion, Anju!"
MIKADO OF YAMATO, ANJU
Anju is both childish and wise. Very stubborn to almost unhealthy levels and she can be severely oblivious before anyone can see it. Most of the times, its hard to believe she is the current RULER of an ENTIRE nation.
She throws a tantrum when not getting her way and pouts when scolded. Insanely Prideful and Boastful whenever there is a chance to preach it. Anju can also be cripplingly tomboyish, laying on her stomach and scratching her posterior while munching loudly on snacks. Now she has gotten better about this but she still has lapses on her refined/elegant demeanor, like entering a room in the buff regardless of who is there.
Anju also has a bad habit of being forward when ashamed and admitting to when she is wrong or "outplayed". While she isn't honest all the time, it's plainly obvious her real message in her flustered/angry actions. She does NOT take true insults lightly, be it at her, her friends, deceased father and her nation. But when she gets serious, she more than shows WHY she is the Mikado of Yamato.
As she has grown, her courage and strength has only grown, her maturity (mentally and physically. She makes sure to really emphasize the physical part). Her understanding of what it means to lead, guide, protect and fight when a ruler must, far exceeds what she shows. In the end, her heart is pure and she possesses both matured kindness and the childish kind. Sometimes she can go overboard on some things even when she has the best intentions. Like helping a friend or when they are sick. If they have an issue, she will jump into to assist, only to cause more ruckus.
Anju enjoys many things, such as food, meeting new rulers and watching their own culture. Her closest friends and retainers.
Be warned; to make a slight against Yamato not only temper her wrath, but to awaken the very aspect of WHY she rules. And yes...she packs POWER
