C.S

Name:
Fūka Akiya

Magical Girl Alias:
Druid

Original Strand:
A

Age:
16

Personality:
Has there ever been a person with more knowledge of flora locked up inside of their head? Or more a willingness to be there for someone else? Or perhaps someone more willing to cast their voice out against things that they disagree with? Well probably not, but chances are you also have fewer people giving you odd looks.

She’s a loyal and good friend, and quite cheerful to boot! Become friends with her today and and become a tree!

Biography:
A cheerful girl who can usually be found tending for some plants. She has been involved with a scuff with the Grimm or two, mostly giving wounded people a chance to survive by having them making contract with her trees.

Primary Power:
Fūka can call one of her trees to her location. To call any tree but her current active one, the dryad that tree is bound to must be near or merged with it for the call to work.
Fūka can direct her trees to do things trees normally wouldn’t be able to do, such as swipe at things with their branches or hug people. Although they’re not really capable of swinging hard enough to injure a person, Grimm struck by their swats suffer disproportionate damage, which often resembles chemical burning.
Fūka’s trees can be compelled to grow fruit. Consuming these fruits give her access to a new suite of powers, which are determined based on the season the tree was grown in. The effectiveness of these powers scale both with Fūka’s popularity and with the age of the tree.

Secondary Power:
When Fūka has no active tree, following the use of her Hyper or Clutch, she can then plant a few tree. Once planted the tree will grow rapidly, reaching a fruit-bearing size within a day. Once the tree has matured, Fūka can then expend her magical energy to cultivate and grow the tree further, she must also trim the tree to aid in the promotion of healthy growth and help the tree produce better fruits. Trimming the tree also helps keep the tree happy, and one always wants their tree to be happy. Depending on the season Fūka plants this tree, both the tree and the fruit take on secondary effects.

Winter:
When planted in winter the tree causes any nearby Grimm to grow groggy should they draw close to where the tree was summoned. The fruits apply an anesthetic effect to the powers of any witch that consumes them.

Spring:
Trees planted in this season grow faster and with less magical energy expenditure. When a witch consumes a fruit from the tree her powers will increase as if she had just gotten a large number of fans.

Summer:
Trees planted during summer are physically stronger than ones planted during the other seasons. The fruits of this tree greatly increase the powers of physical skills. Fruits grown during summer also explode like grenades when thrown at Grimm.

Fall:
Trees planted during the fall produce fruit at a greater rate than the other seasons. Eating these fruits can restore any lost magical energy to a witch to revitalize them.

Tertiary Skill:
Botanist, friend

Hyper Power:
Causes an individual to merge into a planted tree, or else causes a tree to grow around a person. That person is not harmed in any way; instead, they seem to ‘become’ the tree, gaining temporary access to the powers Fūka would normally have, full awareness of the environment around the tree, and the ability to ‘move’ its limbs much as Fūka is able to. Further, Witches will be able to manifest their powers through the tree, where applicable.
At will, an individual is able to generate a new body for themself and ‘leave’ the tree; any injuries they sustained before merging with it will not be present on the new body. This process has few long-lasting side-effects; there are occasionally minor physical changes (hair-colour changing to match the colour of the tree’s leaves, etc.), but these tend to fade, given enough time. The one exception is eye-colour, which often undergoes a dramatic change after the initial incident; because of the small sample size, no overall trend in eye colour changes has yet been observed, although researchers speculate that it might be connected to the seasons. Mentally, subjects seem to retain a psychic link to ‘their’ tree, allowing them to sense its general state of mind, and to dimly perceive the goings-on in its immediate vicinity. Harming the trees cause subjects to become visibly distressed.

Once a tree has been bonded, Fūka must plant a new tree and she cannot activate her Clutch power.

Clutch Power:
The Sakura tree releases its petals which causes a shower of destruction. Tree is borked in the process.

C.S

Name:
Minako “Mina” Yokai

Magical Girl Alias:
She plans to choose Breeze once she joins the DDC

Original Strand:
D [S2]

Age:
12

Personality:
Mellow and nice and likes to be up high.

Biography:
Mina is an orphan living at the Yokai Orphanage and is the sister-via-orphanage of Yukiko.

Primary Power:
Once transformed Mina is able to unravel two ribbons which she has full control over like any other appendage. The ribbons are strong, able to lift well over three times Mina’s body weight, and have proven themselves as more than durable to wrestle an irate Grimm into submission. The ribbons feel smooth as silk, and are very hard to cut.

Secondary Power:
Once transformed Mina gains a pair of wings that she can fly with! She can easily lift around the weight of one person and fly, however attempts to carry two grown adults or a large Grimm take a lot of effort and she can’t go far.

Tertiary Skill:
Mina is very good at baking, and she can make a mean cheesecake.

Hyper Power:
With a burst of magic Mina calls forth a variety of multicolored ribbons, which she can use much like her two original ribbons. Different ribbons have different effects depending on their color. These effects can range from sapping Grimm of energy, to causing them direct damage, or poisoning them.

Clutch Power:
With the activation of her clutch power, Mina’s ribbons will seek out any nearby Grimm and spear into them. The Grimm will then unravel into ribbon which Mina can then control. This ribbon will take on the shape of an animal of Mina’s choosing.

C.S

Name:
Imai Maria

Magical Girl Alias:
Red Witch

Original Strand:
A
Rank 2

Age:
27

Personality:
Biography:
She is married to Strawberry Spring.

Primary Power:
Can warp the laws of reality to conform to her expectations (or the expectations of her audience), using only expectations connected to positive emotions. This means that her abilities are frequently less-than-lethal, but still highly effective at protecting herself and her allies. She uses her abilities to manage expectations by drawing from pop culture, using cartoons as her primary reservoir.

With these expectation she can overwrite the objects in her immediate vicinity, granting some a more cartoony appearance or changing their base density and weight to allow for hijinks seen only in a cartoon. This pencil? Light as a feather until you drop it on the head of a Grimm, then it makes a perfect hole on its way down.

The sophistication of the trick depends on her level of popularity, when she was just starting out she could only do very small things and was considered very weak. At rank 2 she's arguably the most powerful witch in the city, short of somebody like Mai

Secondary Power:
The thoughts of those within her field of influence, and those who are viewing from the outside are subtly pushed to think of what Imai wishes them to think. With this she has far more control over her powers and how she is able to influence reality.

Tertiary Skill:
She is secretly a psychologist, who is very good at what she does.

If not sometimes inexplicably late.

Hyper Power:
All Eyes Here
Once activated, Imai summons forth a large television set. The screen of this television can be easily passed through, and if Imai desires it, can pull any object not bolted down into itself so long as it has been touched by the screen’s glow. Once inside of the television Imai has full control over the physics of the world, as well as the scene and setting. She can also change between being in a cartoon, having the “actors” be real, or anything else in between.

Clutch Power:
The World Is Quiet Here
Warps reality based on negative expectations, rather than positive. "Ordinary" sounds become dull and muted, as if heard underwater; abnormal sounds become far sharper, as if biting into one's head. Contrary to the other changes, which are usually nonlethal and primarily defensive, and rarely allow for mess or dismemberment, TWiQH's changes are brutal, gory, and extreme. The one thing they share in common is that the changes both make are absurd, and cartoonish. The Clutch is technically a "switch," rather than a true power, but remaining in a Clutched state for an extended period of time would have deleterious effects on everyone involved, especially Red Witch.

Name: Karen Mitsumi
Magical Girl Alias: Tsukuyomi
Original Strand: L
Age: 16

Personality: Karen is not good with people. She is extremely reticent, but beyond that shows several signs of being non-neurotypical. Given the nature of her abilities, it's not entirely possible to classify her neurodivergence, as the presenting symptoms may be related to her abilities rather than anything else. Suffice to say, Karen finds communication extremely difficult. If she speaks at all, it is generally in short sentences or single words - primarily, she communicates via body language or sign language. The more uncomfortable she is in a situation - which often has to do with the number of people present and how well she knows them - the more difficulty she has with words. Conversely, once she trusts someone, she's able to carry on some degree of conversation with them, but this isn't something that happens often. Karen tends to avoid physical contact as well, and is easily upset by things.


Biography:

Age 3
"Hello, Karen-chan! It's so nice to meet you! Can you tell me how old you are?"

Karen wasn't sure about this strange woman who was not her mother. Her mother was not worried, though, and so even though Karen ducked behind her somewhat, she held up a hesitant three fingers in answer to the question, since it seemed like the woman wanted to know.

"Sorry. She doesn't talk much around strangers." Her mother's hand was on her head, patting tousled hair in an attempt to smooth the flyaway strands into place. It wasn't an unkind gesture, and Karen allowed it, cautiously.

"That's quite all right. I'm sure we'll be good friends in no time." The woman extended a hand, and Karen shrank back again, tucking her own small hands up into her sleeves.

Her mother sighed softly, petting her child's head again. "It's fine, Karen. You'll be all right. You don't have to hold hands if you don't want to. Be brave for me, okay? I'll be back soon."

Karen nodded. Her mother never lied to her, after all.


Age 7
Mother never lied, but she was lying. Lying on the ground. The strange thing was there, too, creature of bone and otherness. Its face was stained with her mother's blood, dipping into the hollow of her body that had once been whole. Karen watched, because she didn't know what else to do.

The creature was so very hungry, after all. So very, very hungry. Karen understood. She didn't like to touch people, but she reached out a hand to this thing that was red with the blood of her mother, her little fingers tracing over the jointures of the bony plates. They were smooth, almost soft. Not soft like a feather, but soft like silk, stretched tight. She felt the silky softness form into a glove, making its way slowly up her arm, claws at the end of her fingertips. She could no longer feel the softness.

Only the hunger.


Age 10
"Sorry. She doesn't talk. Not since Tsubaki died. We don't know if she can any more."

Karen stood beside her father. He... understood, and yet he didn't understand. He did his best, and she knew that he grieved, too, for her mother. She could understand that grief, understand the guilt that went with it, the feeling that if he'd been there, perhaps he could have changed something, could have stopped something.

She knew that wasn't true. Karen had been there, after all, and she hadn't changed a thing - but they both grieved, in their own ways. She touched his sleeve, two fingertips, barely there, but something. A reminder that she was there, and that she understood, even if she couldn't say that.

He rested a hand on her shoulder, lightly, as if he was afraid she might break.

Perhaps he was right. She glanced down at the hand where she'd rested her fingers on his sleeve, thinking of the softness of bone-silk. Claws rent, tearing holes in the jacket he wore, but vanished again before anyone took note of them.

He noticed later, though, the little tears in the sleeve. How could he not? He'd stitched up those same little tears over and over again, these last few years. A needle and thread couldn't bring his wife back, but they could hold together the remnants of a torn family.

She pretended he didn't know about the claws, and he pretended she didn't know about the stitches.

Age 14
Karen wiped the plate dry with the dish towel and set it carefully on the drying rack as her father passed her the next one from the sink. The television was on, another Doki Doki special, currently cut to an advertisement for schooling for specially gifted children.

Her father said nothing, but they didn't need to speak to understand each other. He glanced down at her where she was drying the plate, his gaze drifting to his own sleeve, rolled up for now, to the tiny fine scar on his arm that neither of them ever mentioned. Karen found her gaze drawn to it as well, in the silence between them, the television advertisements a backdrop.

She set another plate down, letting her fingers rub against the dishtowel. Rough cotton, flexible. Not soft and smooth like taut silk. She swallowed, the words that had always been there, that he'd understood without her saying them - but some things went too deep for understanding. Karen folded the dishtowel carefully, hanging it over his arm, covering the tiny fine-line scar with a white shroud. Some things must be buried, in order to move on.

"I'll go."

Grimm Synthesis Nocturne Fusion:
Tsukuyomi

.

Primary Power: Lunar Crescent
A sliver, carved from the whole. It is what can be seen, but the rest lurks, in darkness.

Karen's primary ability is the ability to fuse with Grimm, becoming some sort of part-witch, part-Grimm monstrosity. While in this form, she awakens limited versions of whatever abilities the Grimm she has fused with possessed. Often this manifests as physical aspects - claws, horns, sharp teeth, bone armor. Generally, somewhere between thirty and fifty percent of her body is given over to Grimm, and it seems to fluctuate somewhat even while she is actively using the skill. Given that different Grimm have different natures, so too do Karen's Crescent powers. Which one she ends up invoking seems to be a mixture of familiarity, strength, and emotional state. She can always invoke a Grimm aspect again once she's done it the first time, invoking a new aspect seems to require a certain proximity.

It is still unknown what Karen could do with aspects of more powerful Grimm.


Secondary Power: Lunar Path
Do you think the moon does not speak? Listen, and you will hear her. Her words are in your soul.

Her secondary ability seems to be that of understanding and communication, though given her nature, most of this takes place nonverbally. For a time, it was suspected that she didn't actually have a secondary; discovery of this ability is recent. Mostly, this ability manifests as an extreme competence at reading body language and nonverbal cues, to the point of seeming almost empathic. Karen is also able to intuit social cues on a cultural scale, even if she has no particular familiarity with that culture. Given her aversion to physical contact, she's often unlikely to act on these intuitions, but she knows what to expect, and is able to communicate her own preferences fairly clearly as well, even without using anything recognizable as language.

It is possible that this understanding is not limited to humans.
.
Image
Hyper Power: Lunar Tide
Do you feel the closeness? Look upon her, and reach out your arms. She calls you. You must answer.

The ability to invoke aspects of all previous Grimm fusion forms, often in cast-off shadow-forms that she controls like the tide. Wild arms, howling faces full of sharp teeth, blades of bone. They are a fusion of equipage and army, something that is somewhat distinct from her, and yet at the same time is her.


Clutch Power: Lunar Eclipse
If the light cannot reach far enough, perhaps the darkness will.

A fully fused variant of her Lunar Crescent, Karen allows her fusion to take over, surrendering herself to the darkness. She gains strengthened aspects of all her Grimm abilities, and uses them to destroy anything in her path until knocked unconscious, at which point she reverts to her standard form.

Re: [CS] Doki-Doki Channel: Witch Compendium

C.S

Name:
Yuina Okazaki

Magical Girl Alias:
Erasure

Original Strand:
L

Age:
17

Personality:
Yuina is a reserved sort, be it due to upbringing or nature she attempts to maintain a respectful distance with most. She can often come across as cold perhaps even uncaring at times, depending on the situation, but still she tries her best to help out when she can. She has a tendency to keep to herself, even during after school activities Yuina often was the one on the peripheries working away on the task she had been assigned. Despite how she can come across, she isn’t particularly uptight, she doesn’t judge others often and is empathetic to their personal situations.

Biography:
“Hurry, honey.”

Yuina puffed as she attempted to match her mother’s long strides, her mother’s hand squeezed down upon her own as Yuina was pulled ever forward. In her off hand her mother’s high heels clicked with each step, under street lamps snow twisted itself into intricate patterns with the rush of the wind.

Far behind, a scream cut short.

“Further, further.”

Like a montra under her breath. One that kept Yuina pushing forward. Mother wanted her to run, mother needed her to run, so she had to. From behind there was a how, and the sound of scratching. Her mother set her jaw, Yuina could feel her squeeze her hand even tighter as she cast a look back over her shoulder. Her eyes widened. Her left foot foot landed on a patch of ice, her stocking slipping -

With a shout of surprise Yuina’s mother fell, pulling the smaller girl down with her, the two hitting the ground in a tangle. Before Yuina’s mind could catch back up, she found herself being pushed back up to her feet. Her mother’s eyes, dark and sharp, her lips pulled into a grimace.

“Yuina, sweetheart, keep going.” she pushed between her teeth.

“Mommy, you have to-” the angle of her mother’s left foot was wrong. The shape at the end of the street lurched forward, teeth glittering in the street light, eyes burning like the setting sun.

“Go. Now. Don’t look back.”

A hand on the back of Yuina’s back pushed her forward. Yuina stumbled.

The Grimm howled.

Yuina took a few shaken steps forward, her tired legs once more trying to find the rhythm. Her mother called out her name. And Yuina’s head snapped back.

The Grimm lurched past her mother, it’s eyes burned in the evening light, caused Yuina to fumble her steps. Her legs tangled, Yuina hit the ground and rolled onto her back. Teeth a long as her fingers. Its mouth opened more than any mouth should. A bad dream. A bad -

A high heel bounced off the side of the monster’s head, and the Grimm slowed with an irritated grumble. As if by instinct alone, Yuina reached out.

Her fingers touched the side of the monster’s head. Cold. Hard. Slick. The scales of the snake she had once touched at the zoo.

And then it was gone.

The monster’s body tumbled forward by inertia alone, knocking the air out of her lungs as it smacked into her chest and knocked her over.

She could hear her name being called, as tears turned her vision to a blur.

Primary Power:
Voiding Touch
With a touch Yuina can dispel a particular emotion from her target. In people she can use this to calm those in heightened emotional states, or to momentarily remove certain negative emotions from a person However, for people who go through this process often have other longer term effects associated with them not working through their emotional issues. For people, the deletion of an emotion is often a temporary instance.

For Grimm, directly touching Yuina can led parts of their bodies being immediately destroyed, however this doesn’t always keep her safe from the force behind the strike, or the scratch of claws as they cut into her skin. For stronger Grimm direct contact with Yuina will lead to a weakening of their powers or bodies.


Secondary Power:
Memoriam
Yuina can bring forth lost memories and the residual emotional energies left in a particular location. When used on a human their memory will, for the most part, return however the person will have a much greater understanding of what they were feeling during their memory. If used on a physical location, emotional phantoms will play out the trapped memories of the location.

Tertiary Skill:
She quite enjoys her origami, to date she is finishing up her latest batch of paper swans to give a classmate of hers good luck.

Hyper Power:
Tranquil Silence
Once activated Yuina’s power creates a wide field within which all emotions start to rapidly deplete. For humans this field is a draining presence, it wears them out, drains away what energy they might have had and leaves them only with a desire to sleep.

For Grimm being within this field will cause their bodies to rapidly corrode, stripping them of power while their bodies dissolve away into shadow.

While the effects of this power are potent on activation, there is a rapid decline in effectiveness the longer Yuina maintains the power, especially once it begins to sap her audience members.

Clutch Power:
Binding Field
Following the activation of this power in a wide field around Yuina a great pressure is released. Any caught within this field will find their bodies growing extremely heavy, their muscles will begin to lose power, their strikes come with less force, and any armors they might be wearing will begin to turn brittle.
