Worked out some (read: a lot of) kinks (not that kind!) with Ryuka-san. Hope it's alright now! Mika Kawaguchi minerva7790Gender:
Asexual for now (that is, she has never really been attracted to male or female. It is intelligence that attracts her)Powers:
Mika has the ability to manipulate dimensions, including space-time. On the basic level, this means she can teleport and theoretically time-travel, by bending space-time to connect two otherwise faraway. But on another level, Mika can, within strict rules, cause objects to "appear", where there was none previously. This is done by searching for a parallel universe (for want of a better term) where the item exists, and reaching through the wormhole and taking it. She can only move non-living objects that are of the same size or smaller than her and are tangible. The item must also be plausible to exist in her own world. Therefore (for example), she cannot bring faerie dust into this world, even if it may exist in another world, because faeries do not exist in this one.
It can be hypothesised that Mika's abilities are linked to her incredible mental abilities. She has eidetic memory: never forgetting what she hears or learns. Mika's former friends used to joke that she was from the future herself, while her enemies called her a freak. Her physics teacher called her the miracle of the century and the key to the questions of the universe, though few agreed with him.Weaknesses:
The laws of nature itself govern Mika's abilities. Mika can only use her powers when there is a wormhole that enables her to access the other dimensions. Mika cannot time-travel. Or rather, she tried once to travel to the past, but was nearly trapped into the wormhole, and has since never dared to try again. She can only teleport to places within sight, for fear of reappearing in a wall or a solid object, and being stuck there.
The law of probable equivalent exchange rules her power to manifest objects. Just as she is able to take objects from other dimensions, so are other people from the other worlds able to take from her world. The exchange of goods is based on the assumption that the people who have such powers exercise them sparsely, at nearly regularly intervals. Therefore, she cannot manifest too many items at one time.
The specificity or rarity of the item she wants also plays a part in how long she needs to manifest it. The more rare or specific the item she wants, the more time she would need to search for it with her mind from this plane, and to open a portal to it too. Also, it is dangerous for her to manifest food items as it is possible for the molecular structure of items to change in minute ways in the wormhole. This may render a perfectly harmless piece of food poisonous, or a perfectly forged blade cracked and flawed.
Perhaps Mika's greatest weakness, however, is her apathetic personality. Although she has these powers within her reach, she often finds no reason to use them. Even if she could stop a murder from happenning in front of her eyes, she won't do it if the victim is someone she doesn't know, or hate. She will only use her powers if it benefits herself or an acquaintance. Not friends, because she has none. None so far, anyway.Bio:
Mika never knew her parents. She was raised by an elderly couple whose children had already grown up and started families of their own. Her foster parents never pretended that she was their child. Instead, they were honest about how she was left on their doorstep as a baby, and always said she must be a godsent to brighten up their lonely house. Mika always accepted this without question. She was a quiet child who asked no questions. Her foster parents always thought it odd, though they just did their best to bring the child up.
Mika's intelligence started showing itself when she began going to school. She almost never did her homework, but because she could answer every question in every test perfectly, her teachers found it hard to punish her. Mika was sent for an IQ test, but the results were unimpressive. Perhaps just as a reason to get rid of her, Mika's teachers recommended for her to go to a school that specially catered to students with high IQ, which Mika's foster parents complied. The new school, however, found her difficult to deal with. Her new teachers found her tiresome to teach because she always knew the answer to any question. Mika loved to read, you see, so she had learnt most of the things these teachers asked her. These teachers were trained to teach inquisitive and bright kids, not one with the memory of a computer. In the end, they left her alone to read at the back of the class. As long as they supplied her with a constant stream of books, Mika caused them no trouble.
Mika did not fit in with her peers, and especially the older children, who were angered that she was allowed to read textbooks that were meant for them. Difficult facts that they struggled to learn came easily to her. They treated her as an outcast, and Mika was content to be treated so. She spent her lunch breaks alone and went home immediately after classes. Her foster parents found it hard to keep tabs on their adopted daughter, however. She seemed to disappear right after coming home, only to reappear at dinner time. In truth, Mika had discovered the passageway through space-time, and spent her time travelling the world, or simply hiding in some library somewhere. To other worlds, mostly, but sometimes to other places in this world, or other times. There she would spend the afternoon, learning about that other place or time, until it was dinner time. She soon learnt that she could also bring objects through those wormholes, though sometimes the object would disintegrate in her grasp if it violated the laws of the universe, such as creating a time paradox.
Running to another place was the method that Mika used to escape the older children, when the ostracizing turned to bullying. She would simply look for a wormhole, or create one if there was none, and hide elsewhere for a time. However, there was just one time she was caught by surprise and used her power a splitsecond too late. A senior had already gotten hold of her arm and he later reported experiencing a force like a whirlpool or a sink, and Mika disappearing before his eyes. His hands had grown suddenly very hot, and the leather gloves he had been wearing appeared to burn away too. When Mika returned to her own world, she found that rumours had spread that she was a witch who used black magic. Students and teachers alike moved towards her expulsion, but before the principal could draft and sign the expulsion order, Mika was transfered to another school. You see, the government had already caught wind of Mika's strange ability, and had swiftly made plans for her transfer to ExCiv.Personality:
Mika shows no emotion or feeling to all but the most extreme conditions. She seldom smiles or speaks, but spends much of her time simply sitting there and reading.Description:
Believe it or not, they're both the same girl: Mika. She's often bored with life in general. School is too easy for her, and not even dabbling with computers (which she's really good at) can sustain her interest. It might strike some people as unusual that a girl so smart and so "futuristic" can be so interested in something as girly as clothes and makeup. She likes to try different styles, but the gothic lolita or punk are her favourites.OOC Sexual Preferences:
I am neutral about sex scenes. As Mika's sexuality implies, she has always avoided sex and doesn't exactly have interest in it. It would be good, however, to be able to explore it, perhaps in some non-con scenes.OOC Notes:
Mika's an alien... Or not. Who knows?
