For the next 10 days I’ll be giving more detailed introductions to my characters from my Ibuki Magica game. These are still rough drafts, and I may change anything about these characters at any time, including the name. Still, I think they’re at a stage where I’m willing to post more detailed information about them. So, let’s begin with our protagonist, Haruka Ibuki.
Haruka Ibuki, age 15
Background: Ibuki has had a plain life for these past 15 years. She first met her best friend Ichiko when she was about 2, and has no memories before the meeting. Since Ichiko has always been part of Ibuki’s life, Ibuki has begun to look up to Ichiko as a sort of big sister. Ibuki herself doesn’t have any siblings, and her parents are lax enough to leave her alone most of the time. As Ibuki grew up, her responsibilities naturally increased, but Ichiko’s increased quite a lot more. She tried to help Ichiko with student council duties, but she was rarely noticed by the other members and ended up leaving. She now doesn’t see Ichiko as often as she likes.
Personality: While not shy, Ibuki lacks presence. She tends not to be noticed by people, but she doesn’t take too much offense to it. She does get upset on occasion that she so rarely gets to see Ichiko, but knows that Ichiko has her own things to take care of. When given the chance, Ibuki will be quick to help out someone in need. She’s a decent cook, diligent worker, and occasionally polite to a fault. She’s one to keep her stuff reasonably organized. Ibuki’s biggest fault is often the ease with which she’ll give up what she wants for someone else, even when she shouldn’t.
Appearance: Ibuki is a little shorter than average. She has short blue hair that she ties in twintails with light blue ribbons. Her eyes are a deep, calming blue. She tends to position her body as to not take up too much room, and her smiles and frowns are subtle and gentle.
If there’s anything you would like to know about Ibuki, I’d be happy to read your questions! Note that answers may include “not telling”, “not sure yet”, and “maybe”. I will try to give more substantial answers than that, though.
As for the next update, it’s delayed to next Monday. I’m not sure how long I’m going to keep doing these kinds of updates, as I’m beginning to want to focus more heavily on the script. I will try to keep going each week or so until the end of February, though. Hopefully what I have now will be done, and every now and then I’ll add an update featuring some more witches or attacks, or maybe magical girls from Kazumi and Oriko. Thanks for your patience and interest!
CheeryMoya edit: Added in a chibi version of Ibuki, although it’s still being worked on. Also, here’s a turtle.
