Almost from birth, Rikka has been trained for war. She has dedicated her life to perfecting the art of the sword. That discipline has, in many ways, forged her personality.
In one of the many internal wars in her homeland, Rikka gave her loyalty to a war-leader and a cause. Wars aren't decided by the better cause and her side lost. Her war-leader dead, Rikka became a masterless Samurai. She was given the option of joining her former enemies. She 'declined' the honor and was stripped of her title, becoming a Ronin and an exile.
Homeless now, Rikka roams the world seeking 'worthy adversaries' for her blade and her skills - serving no greater cause than her own mission.
Rikka is a well-spoken but quiet woman. Her temperament is mild - very little seems to upset her. Some people mistake her for being passive, this is a mistake. She acts as she needs to, without hesitation. Rarely does she telegraph her actions by revealing her mood.
While she holds to her own code of ethics, she doesn't expect much from foreigners. And since she is in 'disgrace' (i.e. a Ronin), she doesn't tend to judge others quite so severely as she otherwise might.

Rikka is a moderately tall and slender Sarannan woman with pale skin, green eyes, and 'Saranna Red' almost-straight hair which she sometimes wears up or in a braid for convenience. She has fully immersed herself in Western culture and language, navigating their foreign ways with relative ease. She is most often seen dressed like a 'lady' in a medium blue dress with a swirling skirt that reaches her ankles. Her neckline doesn't plunge and reveals little. Rikka often wears a light weight, grey bolero jacket as well. The only things which give her away as something other than a middle class woman are:
Her boots which, though well-maintained, are low, soft, and practical - showing much use.
The katana whose well-worn scabbard is slung low across her hips, secured there by a long red woven silk rope.
Her calloused (though slender) hands
The practiced ease and confidence with which she moves
