Character Profiles 2021

Post by Momento10 » Wed Nov 10, 2021 6:48 am

Open to anyone interested in creating something that may or may not be used in the near future.

Content guidelines:
• (*) Spellcheck before submitting. (No, honestly.)
• (*) Character profiles are supposed to be accessible to readers who know neither the series nor the character, as such: a) use as few series-specific proper nouns as possible (character names included) b) avoid spoilers beyond what is absolutely necessary to establish the character
• Any length is fine. 150-500 words is usually a reasonable limit.
• We tend to use the present tense by default, past tense when referring to flashback material and future tense when making allusions to future (or spoiler) developments.
• (*) A profiles says not only “who is she/he?” but also “why is she/he moe?”. Rather than dry facts, we want your personal take on what characteristics make the character special and moe. No point turning those profiles into a shorter wikipedia entry.

(*) = Important. Please actually take note of them as you write the bios

Elaina (Majo no Tabitabi)
SpoilerShow
Who's that young, beautiful girl flying in the air where even the wind dances with her ash-colored hair? Yes, it's her: Elaina.

Elaina is the very definition of pride. After all, not everyone can claim that they graduated from the academy at the age of 14 and become a full-fledged witch at the age of 15. And, Elaina had to work very hard to do so in such a short amount of time, studying day at night, focusing all her free time conjuring spells. She has every right to be a little selfish about her demands.

All those who loathe her have no choice but to admire her. After all, her ego is not just for show. She can easily back up her word with her powerful incantation of spells. Whether it is reversing time to fix broken objects and buildings, defeating powerful enemies, or assisting witches in theoretical tasks, there is nothing Elaina is not capable of. This young witch is capable of defying expectations, and she flaunts it.

With great power comes great responsibility, and the person most critical of her thoughts and actions is herself. She knows that she is a traveler. She knows that she is an outsider entering the lives of other power. And even if she wants to do more for the people she has acquainted herself with, she cannot. Settling in would mean giving up her dreams of traveling the world, which she cannot afford to lose. Such is the life she has chosen as a wandering witch.

And so, Elaina flies on, hoping to one day create a novel just like the one that inspired her to be a witch, but better. After all, she is Elaina - nothing short of perfection.
Saya (Majo no Tabitabi)
SpoilerShow
Who knew applying to become a witch could be so tough? Saya had to leave her village in order to study at an academy. Not only it is far away, but is it also expensive. She has to work part time at a hotel so she and her sister could pay for their education and living expenses. This was not what she signed up for, but if it helps her become a witch faster, everything should work out, right?

Who knew studying to become a witch would be so lonely? Graduates and newcomers come and go, and just as Saya was starting to make friends, they all leave ahead of her. Even her younger sister, the one person whom she cares about the most, graduated faster than her and is out there studying as an apprentice somewhere far away from her. A witch's life can feel emptier than darkness. Surely, there will be someone else who will be willing to stay with her forever during these difficult times, right?

Who knew life after becoming a witch can be so demanding? Even after Saya graduated from the academy, she is back at the starting point of her budding career: homeless, jobless, and penniless. At least, there is always work available at the Magic Association. But, the tutor that she chose to study under at the association is super strict at her and lazy to boot. Worse, her teacher never told her that her younger sister, who she has not seen or heard from since she graduated from the academy, was also learning under her. But, if she keeps working hard, surely she will meet the one who inspired her to continue to become a witch and never give up, right?

Saya's journey as a witch is only getting started, and she is not gong to stop anytime soon.

Ichinose Chizuru (Mizuhara Chizuru) (Kanojo, Okarishimasu)
SpoilerShow
"Ichinose Chizuru is the best girlfriend anyone can hope for. She is kind, compassionate, and attentive. She carefully listens to my concerns and worries and knows exactly what to say in any given situation. When I am around her, I feel like I can forget about all of my life's troubles and finally enjoy my time after a stressful day at work. Highly recommended." - ★★★★★

"Ichinose Chizuru is so sweet and caring. She really knows her stuff. No wonder she's the most highly sought out rental girlfriend in the business. She is very professional about her work as a girlfriend and it shows. Why can't actual girls be modelled after her? She's perfect!" - ★★★★★

"Ichinose Chizuru is the kind of girl you wish you can spend your entire lives with. It's hard to find anyone as sincere and comforting as her. She analyzes my body language and words carefully and reacts accordingly to provide the best result possible. She helped talked me through my concerns and give me a new lease in life. I am forever in debt to her." - ★★★★★

"Don't be fooled by all these 5-star ratings! Ichinose Chizuru is actually stubborn, arrogant, and hates to admit defeat. There are times she would lash out if things don't go her way or gets angry when she questions what was wrong with her service. Worse, she knows nothing about fish, the only creatures who would never look down on you or say nasty things about you behind your back. If you guys knew who the real Ichinose Chizuru is, you'd give her a bad rating, too." - ☆☆☆☆☆

"Okay, maybe I was a bit harsh. Mizuhara Chizuru is clearly working as a girlfriend for a good reason. She wants to show her grandmother that she is able to live on her own and hopefully be able to pay off all her medical bills. Behind both the studios and callous side of her is a girl questioning whether or not she can keep living her life like this behind her grandmother's back. Maybe she's more fragile than I thought. Maybe there is more to her that meets the eye if people actually took the time to learn about her personal life. Maybe she wants to live a life she can be proud of and call her own. It may not be now, but I wish her all the best, and I will continue to support her from the sidelines, even if she may not want my help." - ? ? ? ? ?
Sakurasawa Sumi (Kanojo, Okarishimasu)
SpoilerShow
The last occupation anyone would think Sakurasawa Sumi would get is working part time as a rental girlfriend.

Sumi may be the sweetest angel on the planet, but she is also the most indecisive one of them all. Coupled by her strong fear of strangers and lack of communication skills, and it is of no wonder why so many people have given up on trying to go along with her, and it shows in the poor ratings she is getting day in and day out.

It is not as though she cannot make the effort if she tried hard enough. She plans out her dates and writes down what she will say whenever a situation arises, as a good girlfriend should. It is putting into practice that is the most difficult obstacle. She is so shy that she overthinks what could happen outside of her dating plans, and whenever she wants to talk, she ends up using her body language instead. Maybe she is not cut out for this after all.

An encounter with a willing client may be the motivation she needs to keep going. Perhaps she wants to overcome her ability to converse with strangers. Perhaps she seeks confidence in speaking her mind out, even if it might hurt the person in question. Either way, as long as there is someone who will take time to get her to soften up and be herself, she can continue this rental girlfriend gig a bit longer.

The key to understanding Sumi is patience. And if all the cards fall in the right place, she could be a diamond in the rough, waiting for the right person to give her the shine she needs to bloom into a beautiful gem.

Kamado Tanjirō (Kimetsu no Yaiba)
SpoilerShow
They slaughtered his entire family. They turned his only surviving sister into a demon. Kamado Tanjirō will never forgive them.

In an effort to find the one who turned his life upside down and save his sister from becoming a full-fledged demon, Tanjirō learns how to fight under the tutelage of a retired demon slayer. Weeks turn to months; months turn to years. However, Tanjirō's determination will not waver. If it helps him get one step closer to finding the cure to turn his sister back to normal, he will go through any harsh training to obtain the strength necessary to defeat the one that started it all.

Despite his strong hatred towards the demons, Tanjirō's heart is pure and gentle, like a calm sky reflecting over a tranquil sea. He knows that, before they were demons, they were once human, living a normal life just like anyone else. Rather than admonish them for the deaths they had caused, Tanjirō feels compassion, condolence, and torment. Rather than kill them for their atrocious crimes, Tanjirō wants to save them from their misery and hope they find solace in their next life.

And so, Tanjirō carries on with his black blade in hand, a blade full of mystery, but filled with unlimited potential. The path to save his sister is full of turmoil and regret, but he is ready for it. This is his reason for living, and he will not stop until justice is served.
Kamado Nezuko (Kimetsu no Yaiba)
SpoilerShow
"All humans are your family. Do not forget that."

As a demon, Kamado Nezuko is restricted in what she can and cannot do. She cannot expose herself to sunlight, or she will risked getting burned to nothingness, so she has to be inside a sealed contraption if travelling by day. Nezuko cannot reveal any demonic features at night or else she would be feared and cast aside by other people. Most importantly, Nezuko cannot drink a single drop of human blood, or else she risks becoming more and more like a demon.

Despite transforming into a demon, Nezuko retained a plethora humane, little sister-like traits. She enjoys the company of her older brother, is confused when others dote on her a bit too much, and gets worried if things seem more abnormal than they should be. If push comes to shove, Nezuko will tap into her demonic powers in order to fight alongside her brother. After all, she is the only family she has, and she can't afford losing him.

Be it human or demon, Nezuko will always be true to herself. It is up to others to accept her for who she really is, whether they like it or not.
Agatsuma Zen'itsu (Kimetsu no Yaiba)
SpoilerShow
The day Agatsuma Zen'itsu was struck by lighting, he knew his life was going to go through hell.

Why does he have to train under a former demon slayer and listen to what he has to say? Zen'itsu hates training. Training is tough. Every day, he is gassed out, beaten, battered, and bruised. This is not the life he signed up for. He wants to be free from danger, away from everything scary, and live a quiet, normal life. Is that too much to ask?

Why does he have to fight against demons? Demons are tough. Demons are scary. Zen'itsu cannot bear the sight of looking them in the eye without quaking his boots. His survival in the selection exam has to be a fluke. There are others who are stronger than him and more motivated than he is. Why can't they do all of the work and he just sits in the sidelines? It is a win-win situation for both.

Unfortunately, life does not let him get away with these thoughts so easily. Zen'itsu knows this, but he cannot help but he afraid. He feels weak and useless. He hates himself for this negative thoughts. He wants to change. He has to change. It is kill or be killed, and if Zen'itsu wants to life a peaceful life in the future, then he must fight, for the sake of living the perfect life he so desires.

Like a flash of lighting, Zen'itsu's power is swift, blinding, and impossible to see. Not even Zen'itsu himself knows he has so much hidden potential inside of him. But, perhaps, that is for the best.
Hashibira Inosuke (Kimetsu no Yaiba)
SpoilerShow
"Fight Me!"

The thirst for battle. The adrenaline of taking on something stronger than you. The thrill of hunting for your prey and delivering that final blow. This is the excitement that Hashibira Inosuke has always wanted, and he relishes every moment of it.

Unfortunately, strength and stamina are the only things he has going for him. Inosuke does not care about things that do not interest him. His communication skills are poor and blunt. His vocabulary is limited. His knowledge of the outside world is nonexistent. Anything that does not deal with fighting or training he deems irrelevant.

Underneath the boar mask is a boy who fails to understand compassion. Ever since his mother abandoned him, Inosuke lived in the mountains his whole life, knowing only about survival of the fittest. A simple kind gesture and a warm meal sparks something fuzzy inside him, but he doesn't seem to know what this feeling is. Will this feeling fuel him in battle for hinder it? These are questions only he can answer for himself.

Look out for the crazed man with a boar's head. He's ready to fight, and winning is the only acceptable outcome.
Kochō Shinobu (Kimetsu no Yaiba)
SpoilerShow
She is smiling, yet her eyes are angry.

Kochō Shinobu did not start out as a soft-spoken, happy-go-lucky individual. She was more down-to-earth, realistic, and overly cautious about everything. She adopted this current personality through her older sister, who she admires to a fault. After all, the main reason she wanted to join the demon slayers was because her sister was one, and she wanted to be with her as much as possible. Shinobu's days with her are filled with worry and confusion, but she enjoyed every minute of it.

The passing of her sister left an emotional scar on her. Shinobu wants to find a way to carry her sister's wish to find coexistence between humans and demons, but when it was demons who took her sister away from her, she cannot get herself to see them as anything but evil. Instead of inheriting her wish, Shinobu inherits her sister's personality as a coping mechanism, believing that her sister will always be there with her, no matter how much time has passed.

The poison that runs through her blade is not enough to satisfy her thirst for vengeance. Shinobu will make the demons suffer the same cruel death her sister went through and not bat at eye.
Tomioka Giyū (Kimetsu no Yaiba)
SpoilerShow
What could be going on in the mind of Tomioka Giyū?

For the longest time, Giyū believed that all demons were evil and to be exterminated quickly so that humans could live to see another day. An encounter with a demon that chose to protect humans caused him to reconsider his initial beliefs. Could it be that there are exceptions to this cardinal rule? Is it truly possible that there are demons who are able to maintain their sense of humanity?

Rather than reject the idea completely, Giyū does the unthinkable and takes a gamble at that idea. He is even willing to sacrifice his own life and title if it means seeing his decision through to the end. The other demon slayers may find his strong desire to protect a demon offensive, but Giyū does not care. After all, if he is right, and if the demon girl is able to return to her human state, it proves that there may be a means outside of fighting that can turn this senseless war to their favor.

Until that day comes, he will remain silent and observant, watching everything unfold from afar. Should the chance he took fail, he has no issues cleaning up his mess. After all, that is his role as a demon slayer.
Rengoku Kyōjurō (Kimetsu no Yaiba)
SpoilerShow
Powerful. Commanding. An awe-inspiring presence. These are the qualities Rengoku Kyōjurō has and more.

Like the fire that burns inside him, Kyōjurō's positivity and sense of justice is contagious and widespread. He understands his duties as one of the strongest demon slayers the company has and wields his title in pride. He risks his life every time he chooses to draw his blade against the enemy, but that is a sacrifice he is willing to take.

Kyōjurō seems perfect in every regard, it is hard to anyone to find any fault in his character or behavior. However, that in and of itself could be a telling sign of the trials, the shame, and the disappointment he had to go through to make it this far. Kyōjurō has no right to waver. He must be a shining example to his peers and to the weak and innocent. Kyōjurō does not mind this pressure; he thrives in it. After all, what could be more rewarding than seeing the people's satisfied faces after knowing their lives are safe?

To all demons to dare take advantage of people's fears, be aware of the blazes of Kyōjurō's blade. He will burn them all down for the sake of peace and prosperity.
