A creation kami of air who has abandoned their title and has taken on a human form. They currently teach swordsmanship and self-defensive martial arts in Void City and takes on "odd jobs" when requested.



Introverted and impulsive, she relies more on her instincts than long, thought out tactics, and can seem cold to people who aren't familiar with her. She's friendly and protective of people she knows, but dismissive of people she doesn't know or care about. She will usually help anyone who asks her for assistance, though it may come at a price. Decisive yet fickle, if she's not fond of someone, her opinion will change as quickly and drastically as the winds do but will rarely change once she's decided that she likes someone. She will often shower the people she cares for with gifts of food, or trinkets that she finds that reminds her of them.

She has hang-ups on her past of not being able to help the ones closest to her and can get caught up in her own head, and betrayal of her friends cuts deeply for her. Anger is the key to manipulating her - She has difficulty controlling her anger, especially when her loved ones are used against her.



Physical prowess: She is skilled with various curved blades of different sizes, though she specializes in assassination techniques and Iaijutsu. Stronger than she looks, she can lift heavy objects with the assistance of wind.

Airborne immunity: Immunity to any form of magic involving air/wind. Air-borne toxins and pollutants are immediately purified within her vicinity. This also means she's unable to smell anything other than the purified air (she can still taste just fine)!

Immortality & Regen: While her physical body can die, it will reform gradually after destruction due to the ichor blood running through her body. This ichor also gives her extensive regeneration of her body, quickly stitching together missing limbs and lacerations.

Blood: The golden ichor running through her body is highly toxic and acidic if touched or consumed. Vampires and flesh eaters beware!

Sovereign of air (Kami form only): Changing the atmosphere's composition, creating supercells of tornadoes and lightning (or other weather-based disasters), or causing poisonous gases to fill the area are simpler matters for her god form. She has intricate knowledge over her domain, and it will do anything to follow her wishes.



Binding magic: As long as the spell is powerful enough, binding can impede her abilities greatly, especially when used in conjunction with the seal she's used upon herself to bind her to her human body. This isn't a full solution, however, as she can eventually tear apart any magic used on her.

Self-sacrificing: At her base instincts, she is still a protector of humans/humanoids, and will do everything in her power to protect the ones she's allied with. This includes letting her physical body die or going through extensive torture and pain to prevent harm from coming to them.



- Rae and Blue are her closest friends in Void City. Other allies include Nagore (student), Rantu (tenuous friend), and Croi (business partner).
- She is in a relationship with Rickter. Her personality toward him is much more light-hearted and playful than with strangers or acquaintances.
- She uses specific language, and flat out refuses to use certain vulgarities, please ask if you need clarification!

If a comic isn't in this playlist, then I do not consider it canon to her story.
