Regnimalis character, Okamiko Mawami
Band of basis: Man With A Mission
Among ferrans, Okamiko doesn't quite blend in. Some would believe that she is half-Tharon; the fabled Tharons
are said to be the species that first created the world of Regnimalis
. The description that her mother had about her mate seems to fit in Tharon territory.
...Of course, very VERY few dedicated bookworms of the world would know of the ancient Tharons, so many ferrans would just consider Okamiko a straight-up freak - such lashing was harder to defend against after her mother was murdered by an unknown assassin. Thankfully, her mother's friend Jin
helped Okamiko get away from the torment and live in peace. Once she was old enough to care for herself, she set up a remote home in the wild, outside of the outskirts of Bushiyo
(the city where she and her mother used to live). While she didn't plan to go back into the city itself, she couldn't help but gaze upon it, as it was at least her mother's home.
But, when she hears that the rabbit ferran Saelph Skyfree
is looking for information about the unknown lunar nation Runis
, she thought to the weaponry that her Tharon father left her and her mother with - their tech is beyond anything made in Regnimalis. Is there a connection? Either way, if she's going to find out, she'll have to step outside her small comfort zone...
Stern, strict, and mature, Okamiko would be like a wise big sister to allies around her age, like Saelph. However, she's not comfortable with crowds, judgmental or blunt types, nor assassins. Considering her "social outcast" status, it would take a lot to make her smile. Her biggest wish is to one day be accepted by the world.
Fittingly as ancient beings, Tharons are said to be much stronger than ferrans. Sure enough, Okamiko exhibits greater strength and stamina
than the norm - but Jin believes that she may get stronger as she matures. She specializes in gravity magic
, allowing her to manipulate kinetic pushes and pulls in many stylish ways. She can use a form of telekinesis, apply temporary gravity increase or decrease to specified objects, or even make things collapse. This type of magic is taxing on the user's stamina - even being half-Tharon can't keep Okamiko from tiring out too soon.
As a Samurai
, Okamiko uses the weapons left by her father to exploit openings as they arise in battle. Incidentally, these weapons were intended to be given to her when she came of age. The technology is advanced, far beyond Regnimalian tech - it would take a Tharon, or part-Tharon, to operate them correctly. In time, Okamiko got a hang of each one.
: A katana that she wields in her right hand, it's practically her main weapon. Its blade is made of magic energy. Its main purpose is offense, so its strength and sharpness can be adjusted on the fly.
: A straight sword wielded in her left hand. Its magic blade doesn't sharpen or extend like TOKYO's does, but it can phase past certain obstacles to hit an intended target - for instance, dealing a slash that hits someone behind a wall...without damaging the wall itself.
- Kamikaze Boy
: A set of greaves with gravitational jets around the ankle areas. Obviously, these add a boost to her dash and jump, as well as her kicking power.
- Santa Monica
: The cannon attached to her left armguard. Its main purpose is launching her magic foci further than usual, but can also just shoot concentrated kinetic magic balls.
- Spear Rib
: A windmill shuriken that Okamiko can easily control with her magic. She can spin it and direct it at targets as a large projectile, but she finds more use in using it as a shield. When spun with gravity magic, it can project a strong airlens that repels many magic-based attacks.
* Yes, Okamiko's look is inspired by Man With A Mission's stage attire of choice - chiefly, the bluish wolf masks.
* Bushiyo is, aesthetically, in the style of feudal Japan's cities, with fantasy-esque tinges of modern Tokyo. The name can be derived from bushido (samurai code of honor) or by rearranging the syllables of Shibuya (a special ward in Tokyo and major fashion/youth culture center).
* TOKYO is the only weapon here with any kanji on it, mainly because TOKYO TANAKA is the leader of Man With A Mission. The other weapons bear markings based on the other members' Twitter signatures. Jean-Ken has Jean-Ken Johnny's "^^", Kamikaze Boy bears his "GOW GOW", and Spear Rib's markings draw from his "･∀･". Santa Monica doesn't have a signature, so the cannon doesn't get one.
** Oh yes, in case anyone wasn't informed, Regnimalis IS going the way of JoJo and Guilty Gear with music-based names/themes. The mainest of the cast themselves won't be named after performers/songs, but they will have some band/song of basis for part of their designs/personalities/abilities.
