C H A R A C T E R;
NAME: Natsumi Hikari
CANON: Kamen Rider Decade
POINT IN CANON: Post-Decade & W: Movie Wars
AGE: 20 or 21
APPEARANCE: This lovely lady
CANON HISTORY: Her Story, and further info regarding her series is here!
CANON PERSONALITY: ((NOTE: There will be spoilers for her series from this point forward, especially the ending movie of her series))

When she was younger, Natsumi used to not be the hard-worker she's known to be today. Back in high school, she tended to not care much about any work that needed to be done and would rather spend time goofing off with her friends. On those points, she has matured and improved greatly into the responsible and hard-working woman she is today. As the future owner of the studio, she does everything she can to keep things running as smoothly as possible, ranging from setting up things to be used for photo shoots to making the photos themselves. She's also developed a good sense of finances, making sure that anyone using the studio's services make their payments when necessary. She can come across as a bit bossy at times, but it's usually when she feels that something must be done - either for business, or for the greater good. If necessary, she will use her Laughing Pressure Point (see: Abilities) to motivate someone into doing the requested task.

What hasn't changed from her high school days, though, is how she normally acts when she's around friends in more peaceful settings. Natsumi tends to relax in those moments, smiling much more often and teasing her friends when the chance presents itself. She'll even freely voice things she'd normally wouldn't say in others setting, like someone or something being cute. And even when she's not around friends, she still tends to be friendly and willing to help someone in need. She'll take someone in if they need a place to stay, and offer to patch up any wounds that they might have. Even if there's nothing she can physically do, she'll do her best to encourage someone with her words to do the right thing, even if the words don't come to her easily.

But if the matter at hand is related to anything intimate or generally romantic? That's where things get a little complicated for her. She's never been good dealing with most feelings for anyone that are more than platonic. Family love, yes, but romantic? Never! She always feels awkward and uncomfortable facing those feelings for everyone, and it leaves her flustered and yearning to hide it behind a stern facade. In short, she's a tsundere. It doesn't help when the most possible love interest for her acts like a jerk to her a lot of the time, in order to cover his real feelings - either towards her or towards a mutual friend. More often than not, she'll use her Laughing Pressure Point on him in lieu of the usual violence shown by your typical tsundere.

But even when she's being driven up the wall by her friends, she'll not the type to abandon any of them. She trust and care about them too much to turn her back on them, and she believes that they would do the same for her. For example, she was offered a jailbreak during the one time she was framed for murder and was stuck sitting in jail. However, she refused the offer, stating that she trusts her friends to clear her name and thus let her walk out a free person that way. Which, incidentally, they did. That trust and caring heart is what leads her to make the decision to let her home, the Hikari Photo Studio, be the home that her friends can always return to, no matter what happens. There's also the sense of joy that comes from being on a journey with friends. Despite the reasons for traveling between worlds, it is fun to go wandering with people you know rather than with strangers - or worse, by yourself. She doesn't regret becoming a traveler, but rather enjoys the opportunity to explore a new place and learn new things that way.

However, even that kind of faith can only go so far in the face of all that happens, for she wasn't a Rider like her friends are for most of their journey together. She wasn't able to go out and fight against the villains threatening all the good people in the worlds they visited. It does frustrate her, sometimes, that she couldn't be there to help her friends in that manner. And when things get truly dark, like when the Bad End they were trying to prevent actually happen, it leaves her feeling rather helpless, like she can't find, help, or save her friends at all. If left alone with those horrible thoughts long enough, it can make her feel severely depressed.

But if given the chance to make a difference? She'll take it. If she's given the ability to fight against those who threaten innocents, and her friends in particular? She will use that ability to the fullest extent. And if she is left with either killing a dear friend, or let him destroy the worlds further? She'll do it. She won't be happy, and she'll cry over his dying body, but she'll stop him by any means necessary.

POINT OF DEPARTURE: N/a; she'll be taken just a couple of weeks after her listed time-point, when she's working in her home/photo studio.
ABILITIES: Natsumi comes with a few abilities/skills that are handy for this game:
Laughing Pressure Point - her signature skill/ability, and the Hikaru (family) Secret Technique. By sticking her thumb into a pressure point on the side of someone's neck, she can make that person laugh uncontrollably for a few moments. She normally uses this in lieu of any forms of violence that most other tsundere characters do, but it does have more practical uses. For examples, please look here.
Photography - She knows all about photography, from how to take a photo to develop it to the care and usage of various types of camera. She actually takes better photos than the titular character of her series (which isn't that hard, tbh.)
Swordsmanship - She's no master, but she knows enough to hold her own in battle. Could use some further training, though.
Business Management - She essentially co-runs the family photo studio with her grandfather, and thus knows how to manage things very well, from handling customers' purchases to keeping track of supplies and revenue.
Dream Visions - She had nightmare visions of the impeding, Decade-caused Rider Wars throughout much of the series. Willing to replace this with the Level 0 Psychic Skill called Network Archiving if she's accepted in-game.
Kamen Rider Kivaara - This is her as a Kamen Rider, per her most recent canon point. With the Kivaara armor gained from a kiss from Kivaara (see: below), she's able to fight monsters with superhuman strength and speed. She can fight either bare-handed (her kicks are stronger than her punches), or with the Kivaara Saber that comes with the armor. But she cannot transform into her Rider form without her tiny bat partner.
INVENTORY; Just the clothes on her back, her cell phone, and the keys to her home.
ANYTHING ELSE WE SHOULD KNOW? From her canon point, she has a tiny white Kivat-bat named Kivaara (as pictured here) as a partner/traveling companion. She functions as both a mascot character and as a living transformation device for Natsumi. Haughty and acts cutesy at times, she speaks in a lilting voice, and is fond of any non-evil being not named Kadoya Tsukasa. She almost always sees other Kamen Riders and Natsumi in a favorable light, and will always side with them when push comes to shove. Oh, and she loves to drink blood instead of the life energy that the rest of her race need to survive.

If you allow characters to be apped with mascot characters, then she'll function no different than a mascot animal from Questing Country. If not, or if you want to nix the transformation bit only, please feel free to say so and I'll make changes.

Since this would be my second character if she gets in...
