TLDR: My favorite awful edgelord daughter and one of my oldest, dearest OCs


A smug information trader who has a track record of stirring up trouble. Very lively and charismatic company. She can easily talk your ear off while extracting the info she needs right under your nose. She’s calculating and meticulous with her work, but her pride and know-it-all attitude often give way to recklessness.

When she does end up in a sticky situation, she has a few ice and wind-based magic artes up her sleeve to make a quick escape. Her fighting style relies on catching her opponents off guard, and she’d rather talk herself out of a situation instead. Her teammates have gotten used to bailing her out of ugly fights.

She is absolutely the type of friend to bribe you with your favorite food whenever she wants to hang out. It’s almost an even trade-off for having to deal with her teasing and antics.

Design Notes

Her main design sheet is loosely based off of the Tales of series by Namco Bandai. (Tales of the Abyss primarily, where she’ll find any excuse to ditch her archivist duties in Daath.)


Her modern AU version goes by Celes. She un-ironically loves expired meme formats and provoking people with crusty 2000s emoticons. She’s somehow besties with my other OC Nao Minami.
