(normally her father just calls her Miyu)
Physical Description: Miyu is slightly below average height for her age... she
does not have much muscle mass although she is rather well developed for a girl
of only 14.
Hair, color and style: She has long straight pink hair (Hey it's anime pink is
Eyes: Amber in color
Other appearance notes: Miyu is fairly attractive, given a few years for her body
to mature she will probably be quite a beauty.
Family Status: Father is the only living relative. They are very close having
shared the loss of Miyu's mother and her younger brother in a car accident.
Current Residence: Living with father in a small apartment downtown, at least
until joining NERV
gives the illusion of being much more well adjusted than she actually is. The death
of her mom an brother showed her how fragile life really is. Since her dad was
hurting so much over the loss of his wife and son, Miyu took it upon herself to
try to be the strong one and show support. In the process all she did was bottle
up the pain she felt inside.
Special (insanities?): Miyu has an absolute fear of death and not just her own.
Even seeing a news report about people dieing causes her to suffer.
Quirks of note: tends to be very distant towards her friends... once again having
to do with the belief that if she gets close to someone she will feel terrible when
they die... keeping them at arms length makes it easier for her to cope as she is
afraid everything she loves will die horribly.
Love interests: Miyu would very much love to fall in love, she pins up pictures
of good looking guys and dreams of someday finding a boy... this would of course
be difficult because of the above mentioned quirk which she would have to work out
how she could love someone that much while being afraid of what would happen to
him and how that would affect her.
does not tend to be close to her friends.
Rivals, professional: none yet
Rivals, romantic: none yet, but as Miyu is pretty it's probable that other girls
would be jealous of her if she expressed interest in a boy they might likewise
be interested in dating.
Enemies: none yet
Skills of note: Miyu has devoted her time to learning how to cook, take care of
the house and to take care of her father. She knows most homemaking skills like
taking care of the laundry.
Lack of skills of note: Miyu is clueless when it comes to most everything relating
Skill of note: NONE ... Miyu is afraid of death and combat is all about killing.
Reaction of note: Early on Nerv would have noticed the only way to convince Miyu
to even get in an EVA was to explain to her that if she didn't people would die
... that by dealing with the Angels she could keep people from dying. In combat
Miyu will do whatever it takes to get the combat over as quickly as possible.
Ryuji and Taeko were two of the lucky ones. Their home was on high ground and
they didn't lose everything during the second impact. Their lives did change as
did everyone's but for certain they had a happier lot than others. Miyu was born
shortly after the second impact. When she was six her mother gave birth to a son
who she named Suou.
They had a good life in comparison to what most had suffered. But tragedy was
only held at bay.
Taeko was taking her now three year old son to buy him some new clothes. Miyu
was in school and Ryuji at work. The accident report said Taeko's car had hit a
patch of oil and slid into the lane of on coming traffic where another car collided
with it, killing Suou and Taeko instantly.
Ryuji fell apart with their loss. Miyu being only nine didn't understand why she
would never see her mother or brother again. But each day she saw the pain her
father was suffering. Although she was suffering too, she tried to hold in her
own tears to help him with his. Ryuji was the only thing Miyu had left, and she
was going to care for
him no matter the cost.
They moved into a small apartment since their home was filled with memories and
constant reminders of what they had lost.
Ryuji did slowly get better as the courage of his young daughter helped him come
to terms with the loss they had suffered. He got back to work and Miyu took over
all the duties her mother had once had. Unfortunately Miyu had held back her own
pain so now it was finding new ways to manifest.
Miyu started spending more time away from her friends. She became afraid that
her father might die, so she spent every moment with him trying to make sure he
would never leave her. Even so she developed
the belief that someday she would be very very alone.
Player: Rei-chan (okay it's sort of a play thing because it's short for Desiree
and it's a character from EVA as well)
no combat skills
Combat, first reaction, fear! Then immediately do anything necessary to end the
battle as quickly as possible so no one has to die.
<when asked for elaboration...>
At first I was imagining that she would just start punching and not stop... simply
because she doesn't have any combat skills (at least until NERV teachs her some)
... however I remembered one weapon she knows very well. Miyu spends a lot of time
in the kitchen and would know knives. All those hours spent chopping vegtables
would not go to waste as she could go after an angel with the same dedication to
make Miyu's own special recipe: Angel Stir Fry *grin*
So progression knife would be her first choice of weapons. After that it would
probably be fists, teeth, kicking, certainly nothing organized.
Seeing someone killed will drive Miyu into a deep depression .... if however she
is in an EVA and sees an ANGEL kill someone she will very likely go into a berserker
rage and not stop until she has completely torn the Angel apart, or been killed
