Character Name: Yuna Akashi
Character Canon: Negima (AU - previous game memories from mayfield_rpg and havenrpg)
Character Age/Gender: 18/female
Canon Point: I will be importing her in after her experiences in Mayfield and then Haven as a game import character, but for purposes of her original canon point, she originally came in from near the end of the Magic World Arc, directly after being turned to stone by a petrification spell.
Character Canon History: Right over here.
Character Personality: Yuna Akashi is more or less your typical, cheerful, friendly basketball loving high school girl. Minus all the crazy magic stuff, but we'll get to that later. Yuna acts as the de facto 'leader' of the sports girls group in Negi's class, and is usually the one who comes up with plans and ideas for getting into all sorts of things. She's got a bit of a mischevious streak to her, and seems to enjoy teasing the people she's close to, like when she tells the other sports girls that her breasts are getting larger because of all the milk she drinks, knowing full well they'll all go out and start chugging it by the gallon. She also frequently teases and flirts with Negi in a good-natured fashion, thinking of him mostly as a cute little kid.
Yuna is also one of the most laid back members of the class, taking news that would shock anyone else in relative stride and adjusting to new circumstances on the fly. When she is accidentally transported to the Magic World, she quickly adapts to her new situation, getting a job as a waitress and fitting right in by making friends with her customers. Later, she learns of the real circumstances behind her mother's death and that she’s actually descended from magic users, and her response is little more than a shrug, a wink, and a smile. It's nothing she can change, and there's some hints of sadness hiding below the surface, but overall she takes it with a surprising level of maturity.
This maturity was likely developed in her dealings with her father while she was growing up. Since Yuna lost her mother at a young age, she had to fill in as the woman of the house for her intelligent but highly disorganized father. She basically does all of the cooking and cleaning, and he's a total mess without her to look after him. The two are very close, and she's developed an almost unhealthy level of affection for him due to having to take care of him in her mother's place all those years. She often jokes about wanting to marry him, but it's kind of questionable how much of it is actually joking. It's fair to assume that Yuna is still somewhat naïve about relationship dynamics in general, and just never stopped playing the role of the little girl who adores her daddy so much that she wants to marry him when she grows up.
For all of her kidding around, happy-go-luckiness, and generally carefree personality, Yuna also knows how to buckle down and get serious when she really needs to. Although she forms a pactio with Negi largely on a whim and out of a desire to get a cool artifact, she takes to her new role as a backup combatant with surprising speed and enthusiasm. Yuna's very loyal and incredibly protective of her friends, which is probably why she's able to grow into this new role in the group with such ease. She shows a little of this side when she stays by Negi's side to hold his hand while he's suffering from the side effects of Magia Erebea. The ultimate evidence of this side of Yuna is her sacrifice when fighting Fate and his minions, in which she takes a petrification bullet to save her friend Makie.
AU Information: Since Yuna's AU is really just previous game memories, I'm going to summarize this with a few paragraphs on what happened to her in those games - the major events and how they changed her personality and general world outlook.
Her stay in Mayfield changed her in several ways, the first being that she is much more cautious than she would normally be at the time she was taken from her original canon. Mayfield routinely inflicted various forms of physical, mental, and emotional torture on the people living there, and quite often there was nothing to be done about it except to simply endure the pain. Because of this, Yuna now has a keen awareness of just what her limits are, and that sometimes you can't solve all of your problems by brute-forcing them and having a lot of energy and confidence. She is also more patient and willing to plan things out instead of diving in head first. In a specific event where drinking tainted milk caused some residents of the town to hallucinate, Yuna was convinced that she was back home helping Negi fight demons in the Magic World and ended up killing two innocent people while she was under the effects of the event, one of whom was a close friend of hers at the time. During all of this, she was also killed herself, but revived by the respawn mechanisms inherent to the town. She isn't keen on repeating the experience of being forced to kill someone for no reason or being killed herself, so this is all something she's carried with her ever since, and a reminder to be serious and disciplined in the use of her combat talents. Most of the rest of her plot involvement in the game was as combat support for other characters who were fighting on the front lines of various battles – she wasn't ever involved in the various information gathering efforts, but spent a lot of time defending the town and its residents whenever possible.
As another result of having been trapped in Mayfield, Yuna was able to devote much more time and discipline to developing her combat skills and her talent as a mage. She was able to train under no less than four magical teachers during her time there - Negi Springfield from her home canon, Rin Tohsaka from the Fate/Stay series, Blue from SaGa Frontier, and Draco Malfoy from the Harry Potter universe. Negi was able to tutor her to the point of becoming a full-fledged mage capable of using spells past the standard beginners' magic of that universe, Rin taught her lessons in concentration and control, Blue showed her ways to bend her spells in unconventional ways to accomplish goals other than what they were originally designed for, and she and Draco were able to briefly discuss theory. As far as combat training is concerned, she spent a lot of time practicing her marksmanship skills with her adopted Mayfield father Garviel Loken, a space marine from the Warhammer 40k universe. Due to all of this training and hard work, she has developed even greater accuracy and reaction time with firearms, and has even learned how to operate heavier weapons such as rifles.
Yuna came into Mayfield with nothing more than the magical potential in her blood from having been born to two bloodline mages. It was through the training mentioned above that she was able to actually tap into this power and put it to practical use. The standard description of the only actual attack spell she's learned to date, Sagitta Magica, can be found here. She is still a beginner, and is able to conjure only one flaming arrow at a time, and still needs both an incantation and a wand in order to focus her power properly. This ability came from her training with Negi Springfield. Due to coming from different worlds than her other teachers, Yuna was only able to learn basic technique and theory from them, rather than specific spells. Rin Tohsaka's training focused on efficient use of magical energy as well as maintaining one's focus under pressure - this was accomplished through repeated live combat trials, forcing Yuna to defend herself against unannounced sneak attacks, and several Karate Kid style practical training lessons on precision such as painting Rin's toenails without tickling her in the process. Through her lessons, Yuna was able to refine her technique to release it using the optimum amount of magical energy without wasting any, as well as pinpoint accuracy when directing her power. Blue's training focused around modifying Yuna's magic to do things it would not be able to accomplish otherwise. The sole technique he was able to pass on during their training together was the ability to bend the trajectory of Yuna's shot when using her spells. She's still a beginner at this, however, and able to change the shot's direction only once - it hasn't approached anything even remotely resembling a homing effect. As for Draco, the two hadn't gotten around to actual training together, so the knowledge Yuna took home from her conversations with him amounted to little more than a comparison of techniques between the worlds of Negima and Harry Potter - which held more in common than either had originally anticipated.
As far as Yuna's personal life is concerned, there's one fairly major change that occurred in Mayfield that bears mentioning. Due to some emotional manipulation inflicted on Yuna during the 2012 Valentine's Day event, she got her first real kiss from someone other than the one she had to share with Negi to make her pactio. However, almost all of these kisses were from other girls, forcing Yuna to seriously consider relationship dynamics and her own feelings toward them for the first time when she found herself unable to forget an intimate moment she shared with one of her female friends, Rin Kagamine. Interspersed with other Mayfield occurrences over the next half-year of the game, Yuna awkwardly stumbled through her first romantic confession and attempt at a relationship. This eventually ended in a rejection by Rin as Yuna tried to deal with the associated feelings, and a surprise love confession to Yuna in return by another friend, Rin Natsuki. Everything finally turned out well as Yuna reconciled with Kagamine and began her first real relationship with Natsuki.
Near the end of Mayfield's reign of terror over the abductees, it was publicly revealed that all of the people who had been brought to the town were simply digital copies of the original characters. This information affected Yuna rather deeply at the time, though by her current canon point she's mostly dealt with the revelation. She still refers to herself as Yuna Akashi and speaks of her memories no differently than she did when she originally arrived there, but the awareness that those memories actually happened to the original Yuna Akashi and not her is constantly there in the back of her mind. She still treasures the memory of her family and friends from Mahora Academy, as she feels that those memories define her more than anything and make her who she is, even if she's a copy of the original Yuna. However, her memories from Mayfield (and later, Haven) are very important to her as well, because these are the ones that make her unique and set her apart. They're the only memories she knows for sure that she experienced and the original Yuna didn't.
Yuna didn't spend even half as long in Haven as she did in Mayfield, and none of the specific events there affected her outlook as much as the experience of simply having been abducted to a new prison of a town much in the same vein as the one she'd just come from. At first, she was very frustrated with her new situation, as the end of Mayfield had taken the form of one of the NPCs betraying the others and leading the characters to a new town where they could start over and rebuild a new paradise for themselves. Halfway through the portal to this 'better place,' Yuna must have taken a wrong turn somehow, and found herself standing in front of the big welcome sign in front of Haven.
Haven itself was a post-apocalyptic town, mostly abandoned except for the other people who had been brought there. By happenstance, there were a number of other people from Mayfield who had also ended up in Haven, and Yuna quickly tracked them down to discuss what had transpired in the previous town. Following a conversation with Ciel from Tsukihime (another Mayfield refugee), she decided it would be best not to mention the fact that they were all digital clones to those who had arrived in Haven from elsewhere until they'd managed to collect more information about the location, who was in charge, and how exactly they had gotten everyone there.
She only spent a few months in Haven before ending up in Saeng Seong, but those months were full of much of the same sorts of torture that she'd become used to in Mayfield. In a sense, a lot of it was even worse. In Haven, the abductees had to scrounge for fresh water and edible food, and during many of the events even this supply was cut off somehow. Peoples' memories and emotions were manipulated in an effort to sow distrust and get people to kill each other, and it often worked to great effect. Having survived Mayfield, however, this didn't faze Yuna quite as much as it did some others, and she retained her resolve to endure and fight back when she could. Obviously, however, she would never get the chance, waking up in Saeng Seong instead one day.
Needless to say, she is not going to trust this place one bit, and it's going to take quite a while to get her to lower her guard after spending nearly three years hopping from nightmare town to nightmare town.
Character Abilities: Yuna has the talent for magic by virtue of her blood, having been born as the daughter of two relatively skilled mages. She isn't a member of any sort of ancient or powerful magical lineage, and she's just recently started to learn spells on her own, but she knows enough to perform basic effects like conjuring a small flame (Ardescat), lighting up the end of a wand (Lux), or summoning a gentle wind (Vente). She also possesses a single attack spell, Sagitta Magica, which is the standard attack spell in Negima. At high levels of skill, it can be used to summon multiple elemental arrows at once to attack a group of enemies, but currently Yuna only has enough talent to fire one at a time. An in-depth discussion of how far she's come with this ability is included in her history section dealing with her time in Mayfield.
Yuna is also a fairly skilled marksman. While not professional level, she certainly knows her way around a handgun, and proves her worth in combat during the Magic World arc and during the Mages vs. Martians event at Mahora campus. She is never shown wielding any guns larger than a handheld pistol, but has displayed an impressive level of proficiency with them, and is also able to effectively dual-wield without any drop in accuracy.
Relating to her skill with guns, Yuna also possesses a pactio contract with Negi that allows her to summon a pair of magical pistols called Iris Tormentum. The guns are normally stored in what looks like a stylized playing card, which transforms into her battle costume and weapon when she gives a special command word. She typically only uses one gun at a time, but both possess the same two abilities:
Spirit Transformation Canceling Bullet - Can be used to suppress transformations and alternate forms of anything that is able to magically shapeshift (such as werewolves, etc),
Magic Suppression Bullet - Cancels the use of all magic for 3 minutes per successful hit on its target. This also includes magic currently in effect, such as shielding spells or physical buffs.
Character Inventory: The pactio card described above, and her school uniform. That's all she really had in Haven, so it's all she'll be bringing in here.
Samples: Anything over here should suffice for the interactive sample (all Mayfield posts). This is a post from her stay in Haven. Here she is on Rekindle's test drive meme. And introspection ahoy:
Mayfield. Haven. And now Saeng Seong. Yuna's been in this city for a month now, and she's still waiting for the other shoe to drop. It's hard to believe that the only thing the people in charge here want is for the people to power the city with hugs and kisses and good feelings. She's been lied to before, by people who seemed just as nice and just as reasonable as the people in charge here. Mayfield seemed every bit the nice, normal town it touted itself as - right up until the murder and mind control. And Haven... that place never even pretended to be anything than what it was: a prison with corrupt and insane wardens.
Yuna might be able to swallow the story and hold out a little hope that this place wouldn't just be Murdertown III: Revenge of Murdertown if not for the fact that she knows, deep down in her heart, that she's just a data clone, created for the express purpose of suffering at the whims of whoever created these places. She isn't sure how many of these cities there are out there, but she's long since given up any real hope of returning home to Mahora. The thought alone makes her laugh - like that something like that is even possible. Even if it was, there wouldn't be any home for her there anyway.
Usually she's able to deal with that knowledge, and the loneliness that comes with it. But right now, sitting on the rooftop of the apartment building and staring out over the paper lanterns lighting the city, she can't help but feel a bit of a weight on her chest as she turns those thoughts over in her head. Some part of her still hopes that the whole thing was just a lie or a dream - that someday she'd wake up in her bed in Mahora Academy, late for homeroom with Negi-sensei and a fun day at school with her friends.
Shaking her head to herself, all she can do is laugh at how much it all just really makes her want a hug.
