13 (Birthday: August 12, 1999)
August 12, 1999
mother (Sachiko Mizuno), father (Takashi Mizuno); is technically a sister to the Big Three and has a few cousins on her mother's side
Average height for her age, she has black, shoulder-length hair and brown eyes (which eventually turn a bright gold). She prefers to wear her school uniform when in America, because it gives her a sense of familiarity in a world so different from what she's used to, but when she's not dressed for school she'll wear a long dark skirt and long-sleeved shirts.
According to traditional Greek mythology, when the Titan lord Kronos (or Chronos, depending on which version you read) was defeated by his sons Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades, he was sliced into pieces by his own scythe and sent into the depths of Tartarus. But what mythology doesn't tell you is that when a god chooses to die, they can. But because of their immortality, they have no choice but to be reborn later on in life. Kronos, understandably, wanted to exact revenge upon his traitorous children, but knew that if he tried to reform he would just be cast back down into Tartarus. A few millenia later, his reformed soul has finally passed through the gates of Death and allows him to be reincarnated....as a child. As a female child. But that's reincarnation for you-completely unpredictable. Of course, this grand plan of his didn't account for the fact that his feelings and emotions would be completely wiped clean and his memories, more or less, buried for good, leaving a blank Titan's spirit in the mind and body of a little mortal girl.
As the reincarnation of Kronos, she has full control over his abilities, but because no one really noticed that Kronos has been missing from Tartarus for the last few millennia, there's no one available that can teach her how to not, for example, accidentally speed up her father's leukemia simply because she cried and thought too hard about what would happen if he died. Growing up fatherless was hard, but her mother made the best of it, but it wasn't until Apollo made an appearance in Japan (it /is/ the land of the rising sun, after all) that she was brought to the attention of the gods. What happens now is under considerable debate, but in the meantime, various gods (like Ares and Athena) are teaming up with teachers like Chiron, the immortal centaur, and Scáthatch, the immortal warrior, to teach Sora how to control her abilities without killing herself and anyone else within a 300-mile radius.
