Another design update for the upcoming contest (Grand Prize $200)
This is Naki Nails
Very little is known about Naki's childhood but it is very clear that she was on her own from a very young age. Wild and passionate, her fiery and hedonistic outward self hides a deep sensitivity that she will go to great lengths to mask or even avoid facing.
A traveling adventurer, Naki was whim only to the wind. She went where she wanted when she wanted. Only concerned with her own amusement. Sometimes she would treasure hunt, sometimes she would be a blade for hire. She sought the life of a free spirit. She met Kyle Lance in her mid teens. Right from the get go there was a natural attraction to him. For a very very long time she painstakingly attempted to convince herself and others around that she did not have romantic feelings for him because feeling for others only leads to heartache in her mind.
She would claim that he provided her entertainment since so many interesting things happen to him. Eventually she begins to acknowledge an attraction but claims that it is only physical and one night of lovemaking will sate any hunger she has for him. But the swordsman would not take her to bed as easily as that. This free spirit who once abandoned people almost as soon as she partnered herself with them soon found herself amongst constant companions but still denied any sort of emotional attachment to any of them... especially Kyle Lance.
Eventually she is forced to face her true feelings when she realized that preserving the life of Kyle Lance was of greater priority than preserving her own. A jarring revelation triggered by instinctively leaping between him and mortal danger. She struggled to come to terms with it but eventually embraces it... though she held these feelings back for so long that she tends to overcompensate when he is concerned. When finally open about her feelings, she is fiercely... even viciously protective of him when she senses any sort of danger that may befall him.
Naki is a Fire Ald so she has a natural inclination for fire magic but isnt really interested in magic enough to employ it as a primary fighting strategy. She mainly uses volatile fluid combined with low level Spark Spells when attacking. Her claw is her primary mode of combat.
