Candace Oguchi by pheeph Candace Oguchi by pheeph
This is a new OC... You might have seen her a few times, but this time I'm bringing her up front.

Name: Ameko Oguchi (Japanese: 大口飴子, Ōguchi Ameko)

Birthplace: Japan

Nickname: Candace

They call her the "Kokusai Shinpan" (International Referee).  Candace pretty much took the role of referee of many sports (basketball, hockey, soccer, lacrosse, kendo, etc.) and sometimes takes that same role in situations where it's unnecessary... 

notes:
-Her placeholder name was Amedamako Shinpanyaku (which was way too long for a name).  Took a while for me to figure out a more proper Japanese name... something that would have meaning for her personality and the role she is in.  I was able to find the the kanji for her personal name, but it was the surname that took me a while to think about... that was until my dad suggested "Oguchi" (I gotta thank him for that)
-For the meaning of her name, Ameko (
飴子) means "Candy child"... there's another "Ameko" that means "Rain child" but the kanji is different... Her surname Oguchi (大口) means "Big Mouth"which attributes to her referee role.
-I chose the name "Candace" because of the nickname "Candy"... That's what made me look for the respective kanji.

You'll see Candace as a referee in various sports every now and then... and sometimes she might say some random Japanese...
