aka Cy or Cyan
they/any | 22 | Cupid Parasite
TLDR: My deadpan goth fashion blogger/designer who suffers in the Sillywood industry of Los York.
(Shipped with Ryuki F. Keisaiin)
A fashion blogger, indie designer, and a completely average human amongst the mythological shenanigans of Cupid Parasite.
Cy works as a nail tech/makeup artist by day in one of the trendiest salons on 7th Avenue in Los York. With a hectic schedule including working at fashion shoots and Cupid Corporation events, they’ve had to put their own indie fashion label on hiatus. They have a calm, cool, professional demeanor, though it often comes off as complete deadpan.
On the rare occasion they have a day off, they enjoy catching up and talking shop with Ryuki F. Keisaiin, their fellow industry colleague and frequent collaborator. Cy takes their nickname of “#19b5a1” in stride, but maybe one day “Cy” will stick in Ryuki's brain. (They attended the same fashion college at some point, but Ryuki has absolutely no recollection of them from that time ofc.)

Character relationships (click to expand):
Ryuki F. Keisaiin - Colleague, occasional business partner, love interest. They both attended the same fashion college at some point, but Ryuki has absolutely no recollection of them. Though they share mutual connections in the industry, it takes a painfully long time for Ryuki to remember Cy’s face and actual name. But Cy proves to be a skilled enough designer and a rare source of both honest and constructive feedback, and their friendship takes off from there. Cy is determined to squash the one-sided secret crush they have on the Keisaiin heir, but it’s a futile effort.
Lynette Mirror - Business acquaintance. Lynette reached out to them one time about helping host a workshop at Cupid Corporation and Cy panicked and agreed. Because even though their work schedule is way overbooked to hell and back, who could say no to this charming literal goddess??? It’s all been downhill since then.
“Ryuki, you gotta help me. The cute bridal advisor called me again about doing a follow up workshop series next month, and I couldn’t. say. no.”
Celes - An old friend who keeps in touch surprisingly frequently, despite being an ocean apart. Usually it’s Celes calling up Cy about recent happenings in Los York, or asking if they have any connections to some event or person in town. Cy’s gotten used to being Celes’ eyes and ears for these things and is more or less convinced that Celes is some perpetually online internet wizard at this point. In exchange for the occasional scoop of info, Celes offers the most comprehensive overseas shopping service Cy could wish for.
Nao Minami - A Tokyo-based freelancer and a huge fan of Cy’s design work. Celes is both of their mutual friends.
Enji - A close friend who works in the VFX side of Sillywood hell. They cross paths frequently, but usually in passing. (Enji is usually glued to a computer whereas Cy is usually on set/location.) They usually scream about it over the group chat.
