because it's "your story". History, IGN/class reasons, fanfics, *anything*
I was looking through my scraps list on basil and found this, saved from a PM i was writing to my mariasu:
"Basic summary is that my bishop is a transexual who was engaged to my I/L for years. They're married now, but she's still a shameless flirt while the I/L is too laid-back to care. He spends his time sitting in Ardentmill, watching the noobs try to make a living off their day jobs while pondering the meaning of life on his corgi chair. Or at least, that's what it looks like to bystanders. He's really thinking about what pet food tastes like.
Meanwhile, bishie hits on Marksman all the time because she can't resist MM's ridiculously gorgeous fishie eyes. MM is completely oblivious to it all and ignores people. All she cares about is being the next to earn Dalair's approval and be rewarded with the Horntail Slayer medal. Her true love lies in the teddybear she picked up from a lonely ice town, as well as the overly joyful sushi thing on her head who helps plot the downfall of everyone around her. She is a masquerade of cutesyness and everyone will die because of it.
Her allure is too much for Kanna, who fell desperately in love with MM the minute she landed from medieval Japan and laid eyes on the kawaii crossbow-wielding fiend. Kanna is super shy and secretly wishes she were as outgoing as the bishie, whom she witnesses hitting on MM all the time. She watches quietly from afar with those intelligent red asian eyes and weeps to herself inside. Kanna frequently tags along to MM's Root Abyss runs in hope of getting to know her better, not realising that she's a mere filler because the RA doors only allow entry in parties of 2 or more."
