Appearance: Taller than average, but only slightly, Ryla looks rather slim, despite her hobbies and her life overseas. Her hair's tied back up in a higher ponytail, to keep it out of her eyes (and because she thinks it looks cool). She always wears a full navy tracksuit, no matter the weather, and seems to not be bothered by the heat or the cold at all. If she had the choice, she'd probably wear her katana on her waist as well, the only thing that can signify her from being anywhere special, due to it's quality.
Skin Color: Light Tan
Eye Color: Maroonish Red

Tail color: Dark Brown
Special Talent: Bladed Weaponry
Cutie Mark: A cherry blossom cleaved in two.
Personality: Easy going and laid back, Ryla just seems a very relaxed person, maybe being a bit too lax on responsibilities at times as well. Though she does respect authority fairly well, even after being told to do something or not to do something, she tends to forget quickly, and go about her business as usual. Formerly a hot head, her wreckless nature had long been beaten out of her from living overseas for a while, and training along with going to school there. Though if angered, she could easily toss someone halfway down a hallway without any thought, but that's if you can get her angry.
Backstory: Ryla grew up in Equestria, along with her precious, and adorable little brother Tyrfang, and his little friend Delightful, but after she found her cutie mark, she asked her mother if she could get trained and schooled overseas, but without any special benefits. So starting in middle school, she was on her own, housed in a dojo belonging to a tengu master. She trained, and went to school for many years, battling various demons (competitively of course, didn't mean they were tough though), and eventually making it as one of the top participants in any tournament related to fighting.
However, after graduating high school and finishing training, Ryla decided perhaps it was best to return home, and maybe get an education to get a job later in the family business. After all, she can't keep fighting all her life... but she was still young, so why not enjoy it for now? So she transferred to Luna University, hoping to have a bit of fun before she graduates.
