The Hoshikawa Family has traveled across Othard for many generations, peddling their wares to all who will buy them. They're best known for their fortune-telling and natural medicinal remedies. It is rumored that in the past, they have traveled to other parts of Hydaelyn, but this information cannot be confirmed or denied. Kinsei takes after her family in many ways. She is an amateur merchant and spent a good portion of life traveling from one end of Othard to the other and back again.
Around the age of sixteen, Kinsei broke off from the rest of her family due to a disagreement of some sort. At this time, she began to train in the arts of poison making and dagger-wielding. Once she felt she was proficient enough at both, taking on assassination targets became Kinsei's life for six long years. The race, clan, gender, age, and financial standing of the hit did not matter. Nor did the motivation of the client. If Kinsei was paid well, she carried out the service. Most of her kills did up being Xaela, however, given the violent and vengeful nature of the clan. If asked why she chose such a life, the inquirer will typically be met with silence.
Once Doma was destroyed, Kinsei suddenly shifted gears and dropped her dangerous lifestyle altogether. Choosing to focus on hammering her families herbal remedies and salves into her mind, she returned to the gentle life of a peddler. She migrated to Eorzea when most other Othardians did, landing in Ishgard. Kinsei has fallen in love with the city and has not moved elsewhere ever since.
While far from being shy, Kinsei prefers study or work over meaningless interaction. She only laughs or cries when a feeling strongly resonates with her... or if she needs to manipulate someone. Otherwise, she remains silent or indifferent. Despite this, she communicates her intentions well enough through thoughtful wording and body language. Exceptions to this rule are good friends and clients, whom Kinsei softens up to.
