When in costume, Hyoken Seisou loves to act as the character and be in the spotlight, on stage, and in front of a camera. But when out of costume and not running conventions, she actually perfers a quite and very private life holed up at home; making costumes and drawing. She also enjoys playing field hockey on a local woman's league (center forward); her speciality move on the field is a strong reverse stick and reverse stick stops, being able to get to the ball very fast, and pulling unique and barely legal moves.
She is also greatly obsessed with logo/labels Resistance 2's SRPA (Special Research Programs Administration) and Resident Evil's Umbrella Corporation. She has many collectables of both SRPA and Umbrella Corp.
She is (slowly) currently working on her story, The Enders and hopes to one day illustrate in a manga styled fashion, and get it published.
She is a pretty laid backed person and does not like getting into conflicts and especially dislikes (personal or affecting) drama. She likes to stay in a neutral party during any disagreements between parties. She is known for her strong mindedness and will power, good at sensing when you are using her (good at calling bullshit on people), 'apparently' witty and funniness, goofiness, lack of meaningful emotions (ie angry, sadness, etc), the "won't take your crap" type, leadership, and curiosity.
Hyoken Seisou's personal quote: Non si torna indietro meaning 'There's no turning back'.
