Alrighty. I'll actually not think too hard about this one and once again go with my first instinctive choice:

Image
This is kind of a first, but I'm actually proposing two characters since they mostly act as a unit in the series: Xia Yu Fan and Xia Yu Lan from Full Metal Panic!'s third season.

These two sisters basically had no choice but to undergo training as specialist assassins. Ostensibly cold-hearted and practically emotionless, they work for the mercenary Garen, who is, for all intends and purposes, their sensei. Although they despise Garen's current client, the deranged scientist Gates, they still carry out their orders out of complete loyalty to their sensei.

Too bad I lost that one. Well, I'll try with this one.

Kenshin

Image

Brought up as a swordsman, he wanted to right the wrongs of society. Instead, he found a life of an assassin, slowly eating up his humanity, during the Bakumatsu. Only when he finds happiness, tragedy strikes and he tries to amend for his sins. Not exactly deadpan, but he has a lifeless smile, showing his sadness. And he can't exactly fit in either, due to old enemies always gunning for him or his sense of justice.

Well, I guess we need to keep it going. Kocurek, if you would, please ;).

Yeah,it's time to decide.

This time DestroyerGX takes the win.
Starting with the most superficial similarly both Kyouka and Kenshin are wearing classical Japanese attire.
They both worked as assassins but changed their way of life because of influence of accidentally meet character.They also have to deal with people from their past coming back to cause trouble.
Another similarly is the fact that both Kenshin and Kyouka had some bad childhood with presence of strong mentor figure just after the catastrophe.

Just as a heads-up, I'll be on vacation for 8 days starting tomorrow with no internet. Unfortunately, we might lack the necessary players to keep the game going in the meantime. I hope some other players will find their way here, though :).

Edit: What do you know... I actually do get free WiFi here. So I'm up for the next challenge.

All right. Here's the next character, an obscure one for those still in the US:

Image

Reinhard von Musel from Legend of the Galactic Heroes (one top favorite of mine)

A charismatic figure, he had a sad childhood (again, what is new?), losing two family members (one died, the other taken away from him). He made a vow with his childhood friend to win the universe. His meteoric rise saw the downfall of two decrepit societies, the one in which he overthrew from within, and the other in which he conquered (aided by venal men within this other society). He was unparalleled in military science, tactics and strategy, but he had one arch-rival who was always one or more steps ahead of him, mainly due to his impatience when on the defense and junior in experience. He has a strong sense of justice, honor and the such and has harsh words for incompetency, particularly on military matters, and injustice. All his subordinates all have a strong loyalty to him (with the exception of one, but that one still helped him tremendously). He always leads his men in every battle, no matter what, hating to be called a coward. Another trait is he hardly opens his full mind to anyone except his closest friend and his sister.

I think I have a good match
Char "Red Comet" Aznable from Mobile Suit Gundam...and Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam...and Mobile Suit Gundam Char's Counterattack...and Mobile Suit Gundam The Origin...Okay he was in many Gundams.
Image
Charismatic, blond haired political figure with tragic childhood that shaped him and gave him incentive to rise to power.Man with strong sense of justice that wanted to destroy rotten elites.
Char's rise to power also saw few societies collapsing(with a little bit of his help).On top of that Char was always leading his man from the frontline and was well respected by his subordinates.
Char also for spoilery reasons was type that hold stuff to himself and held mysterious aura about him.

Not my area of expertise, so I'll go with a fairly 'mainstream' suggestion, but one that bears quite a bit of resemblance from what I understand of Reinhard:

Image
Lelouch vi Britannia from Code Geass

A brilliant strategist haunted by... well, not exactly a bad childhood, but an unfortunate heritage; trying to overthrow the opposing faction; doesn't usually open up to anyone except his 'confidante' C.C. when he's at his lowest mentally.

Well, it's time to decide. I found BlueSpark's answer just sightly better. I also first thought of Char Aznable, but then I thought it was too obvious. I totally forgot Lelouch: he also had a close friend, Suzuki, but I couldn't help note the contrast between Lelouch and Reinhard: Reinhard's friend followed him loyally, whereas Suzuki fought Lelouch

Spoiler:
Til Lelouch's plan for peace finally reconciled them, at the apparent cost of Lelouch's life.


So just to repeat: BlueSpark wins this time.

Wohoo! A slightly unexpected win, but I'll take it :). Moving right along, let's open up the game to the world of adorable little girls with:

Image
Ayumi Otosaka from Charlotte

Ayumi is an upbeat and energetic girl who feels the need to take care of her older brother as the two of them live alone together. She's still very much a child, though, and adores the teen idol Misa. Ayumi's trademark kitchen ingredient is a family-recipe pizza sauce which she puts into practically every dish she prepares - even her brother Yuu's bento lunches.
