~This is what it means to be a fighter? Am I nothing more than a tool used for the entertainment of humanity?~
~ Nanako, questioning the reasons behind her creation.
~I was created to be the embodiment of capability, but I never realized that there were so many beings in this world like me. Even if that is the case, it doesn't matter- I am the strongest!~
~ Nanako, upon joining the Automaton Massacre Fight Club
Origin / Backstory
Built in secrecy by an internet dwelling college otaku, Nanako was designed to be the ultimate robot. Her creator - Akira Jinnouchi (or A.J., as he preferred to be called), known by members of his fraternity as "The Lurker", had just finished a critical test for one of his college courses, when he asked himself whether or not it was truly worth it to complete this much work. He quickly realized that it was a dumb idea to cheat (the college would find out eventually, and he'd be expelled for sure), so he utilized his knowledge of technology and engineering to score a job as a Scientific Engineer. From there, he got to work on the blueprints for a unique android - one that could perform just about any physical task- and exceed any expectations.
Although the first several prototypes didn't last very long, Akira finally discovered a new material that could handle the amount of stress required for a high level learning robot to function. The material was dubbed "Cybantium", and just one ounce of it contained more power than two hundred Tsar Bombs. Using a Cybantium core to power his final prototype, which he considered "The Ultimate Meta-Being", Akira succeeded in creating what he had sought after for so long.
Programmed with an A.I. that exceeded the combined likes of every human who had ever existed, Nanako was the most advanced automaton of her time. She grew to dislike her creator, stating that he was a "selfish, attic-dwelling pervert", and suggesting that he kill himself; even giving out a list of logical reasons as to why he should do so. But even as she walked away from him for what should have been the last time, the seemingly cold and unapologetic android began to develop hidden feelings for Akira. Nanako would silently stalk him and read his every movement, taking note of anything that seemed odd. Whenever someone tried to attack or rob the otaku, she would come to his aid- not wishing for the one who brought her into the world to "humiliatingly perish" at the hands of his own kind.
Eventually, there a came a time where Nanako couldn't protect her creator. He had decided to take his own life; which she didn't realize until it was too late. Punishing herself by going into stasis, she hoped to right the wrongs she'd unwittingly allowed to occur. Decades later, Nanako was unearthed by a ragtag team of robotics enthusiasts- who would reactivate her to do battle. They didn't expect for their discovery to enter "Battle Mode" - an emergency tactic secretly added by her creator to prevent hijacking and tampering. Without warning, Nanako could become a terrifying force to be reckoned with- one that fought to kill without hesitation. Even though Akira's suicide had brought her to the peak of despair, Nanako knew that he had given her a purpose. Searching for that purpose, she took off towards a nearby city; one that happened to be inhabited only by fellow mechanical beings. It was here that she joined the Automaton Massacre fight club. Her goal was made clear: to prove that she was the most powerful creation of all.
The only prerequisite for joining the AMFC was to hold one's own against the club's current champion for at least five minutes- a requirement that Nanako could far exceed. She lasted a total of two hours and twenty five minutes, breaking the previous record astronomically, and gaining the entire organization's respect. Due to her exceptional abilities, she was placed in with one of the club's most renowned teams. Alongside her new comrades, Nanako scored multiple victories- winning around 85% of all matches. Over time, she came to be known as one of the AMFC's Top Tier Elites- and was offered a position among the Board of Executives. She refused, stating that politics "weren't in her programming" and instead choosing to remain with her team.
From there, events took a turn for the worst. Matches were made increasingly unfair and punishing; causing many of Nanako's teammates to be horribly damaged. It was obvious to her that the executives weren't forgiving, shaking her trust in the organization. During what would become her last match, her team was pit against only a single opponent: a dark haired android with glowing red eyes and grotesque, exposed circuitry across its body. The fight was over in seconds; ending with the team being mercilessly beaten and overpowered- many of them were left in scattered pieces. The figure revealed to Nanako and her allies that an army of automatons would soon be formed to wipe out mankind, before vanishing as quickly as he arrived. Deep inside, Nanako made it her goal to one day defeat him.
Nanako Jinnouchi now dedicates herself and her team to uncovering the truth, for better or for worse.
Nanako has the appearance of a young, petite female with long, flowing, snow white hair, creamy, shimmering skin and glossy, marble-like eyes that change color depending on her emotions; overall, she's considered "short, but proportional." While "blending in", she prefers to wear a brown velvet long coat with black buttons- under which she wears a long-sleeved thermal shirt in plain gray. Along with those, she wears black silk leggings, seemingly oversized gothic combat boots of the same color, and white cotton ankle socks. During the summer, she's learned to change things up a bit; preferring to wear light cotton hoodies in plain white, silk t-shirts of any color (usually red), and brown jean shorts along with slightly battered converse sneakers and rolled down socks.
While wearing human attire, she appeared perfectly normal- with the exception of her mechanical audio receptors; which made her stick out like a kitten in a box full of puppies (She eventually remembers to transform her ears while in disguise). When she activates her Battle Mode, Nanako shifts into a more robotic appearance; complete with streamlined armor, somewhat exposed circuitry, and glowing blue stripes that race down her body; she considers this to be her "true" form. With her Attostratus Enhancements, she gains the appearance of a sleek, humanoid fighter jet, complete with aerial fins on her limbs, upper back, and the sides of her head; the armor also bulks her up slightly, adding extra armor to her already durable form; her power core is on display at the center of her chest, and glows a bright greenish-blue. At some point, she decides to change her color scheme to black and red -- perhaps to symbolize her emotional transformation.
As the series progresses, Nanako's upgrades slowly make her appear taller; by the story's epilogue, she's around 5'6", as opposed to 5'2" when she's first built.
NOTE: To all of the non-techies, Audio Receptors are an Automaton's ears.
At first glance, Nanako seems to be a collected and ordinary girl with a penchant for reading classic literature. She's very quiet and reserved at all times, and much like an ancient samurai warrior, only speaks when spoken to. Despite her oddly contained nature, Nanako is extremely mentally active. Whenever she's not reading or simply gazing at the scenery before her, she's writing various poems and short stories on her laptop- which she keeps in a protein leather handbag that matches her coat. Her preferred genre has always been adventure, especially if the setting is described in full detail; as she loves to visualize new environments.
Nanako's advanced programming and build detail allow for her to experience the 5 primary senses, which further allow her to blend in. She is also capable of forming habits and copying human mannerisms perfectly, distancing her from most other androids. Alongside the senses, she's capable of experiencing human emotions, which allow her to become somewhat extroverted if the setting calls for it. Outside of situations where social interaction is absolutely mandatory, she'll repress all but three emotions: Curiosity (which comes standard with almost any intelligent being), Responsibility (in order to fulfill her designed purpose), and Contentment (so that she can continue to complete assigned tasks).
During her time as Akira's guardian, Nanako had made a bad habit of smoking cigarettes (any brand or flavor would do), probably due to witnessing other people doing so, and presuming it to be the norm. They did not have any severe effects on her, other than heating up her internal CPU, which sometimes caused her to act oddly -- much to the dismay of those around her. When she awakens from her slumber after the timeskip, she either loses, or simply forgets about this habit.
As the leader of her team, Nanako is always astute and prepared, with almost no sense of humor or significant emotion; This tends to bother her teammates -- especially Kaida, who is prone to spats and feuds with just about anyone. Due to their similar, yet conflicting nature, Nanako and Kaida are known to violently fight each other until an agreement is reached, even if it leads to severe damage of themselves and the surrounding area; conflicts are almost 50/50, but Nanako seems to have a slight lead.
To most others, Nanako is seen as an odd, if boring individual. To her teammates, she is very realistic, forward-thinking, and highly critical. Nanako has no concept of "friendship", and she refers to her teammates either as "allies" or by their unitary designations. Despite her odd viewpoints on attachment, she has subliminally expressed a loving fondness for her teammate, Satoshi Nakamura.
Rarely expressing hesitation, she doesn't back down from anything unless it's absolutely clear to her that the cost is too great. The only time Nanako felt anything remotely close to fear was during her first confrontation with Nadir of the AMFC Elite Executives; it was as if his presence bypassed her emotional lock and gave off a signal that told her: "If you fight him, you will die." Despite her instincts screaming at her to turn back, she gave him the fight he was looking for, even though she didn't win and barely made it out in one piece. No other opponent has come that close to taking her offline since then.
Following her battle with Nadir, Nanako's memories come flooding back to her, tearing down the wall which had held her emotions at bay. She became much more sensitive and far less reserved when it came to social interaction; because of this, she further bonded with her team and began referring to them as "friends". The change was so drastic, in fact, that it was practically uncanny; she was much less one dimensional, she no longer acted solely on logic, and her voice gained a distinguishable amount of character. She went from "flat" to "balanced", acting as the perfect medium among her team -- acting appropriately to any given situation. Over time, Nanako Jinnouchi had gone from the definition of "weird" to the epitome of "normal".
