City Profile
Aoimi Aozaki is a a level 4 Esper designated "Carbon Changer" by the city. The woman is capable of altering the strength of carbon bonds in an object allowing her to make carbon-based objects weaker or stronger. While the power can certainly be useful, especially once mastered to allow one to form specific variants (diamond, quartz, etc) it is largely ineffective in combat and impossible to reach level five. However, the power is versatile and does present some unique options to experiment on.

Appearance

Aoimi Aozaki is a beautiful, small, young high school girl. Her most notable physical feature would be her long red-hair that extends to around her back. Other than that her figure is what you would expect from a rich, healthy, physically fit girl who eats right. In her normal day-to-day attire, she is commonly seen in her school uniform due to the rules in the School Garden at her prestigious academy. Her uniform is a simple skirt, stockings, blouse, and red-ribbon. Were you to somehow see her either out of her school uniform, but not in her Captain Carbon uniform, you would find her in expensive fashionable clothing. After all, someone of her prestige should dress the part and her parents would never allow her to wear something cheap that could disgrace the family.

In her Captain Carbon persona, Aoimi is quite noticeable and attracts all manner of attention. In an attempt to appear as heroic as possible, Captain Carbon wears a very distinguishable and weird full body coat, a hat, and sometimes even a scarf to function as a "ninja mask" to be "super cool!". In addition she wears full baggy pants, gloves, and boots covering as much of her body as possible to make her able to armor up as much as possible. While her carbon fist might let her hit above her weight-class, she is still rather small and needs all the protection she can get to be a hero.

As the model student, Aoimi carries herself with an air of refinement that one would expect from a woman brought up in a high-class family. She can walk with a purpose, but without appearing rude or aggressive. In fact when approached, the woman is very calm and polite to the point where a westerner might view it as 'timid'.

As Captain Carbon, Aoimi carries herself with pure confidence and charisma as the masked identity allows her to aim for PROUD and BOLD! She is assertive in motion and does her best to carry herself in as powerful a manner as she can to make up for her size.

Personality

Aoimi Aozaki is a rather interesting person when it comes to personality as it's hard to describe her by itself and instead requires one to focus on her two 'personas': Captain Carbon, Super Hero, and Aoimi Aozaki, Perfect Student. Aoimi Aozaki has always grown up in privilege and wealth, however while it presented many positives, it also meant she was born with expectations already upon her. As a child, her parents insisted on hard work and perfection which molded the girl into the woman she is today. Aoimi is smart, determined, dedicated, and focused on achieving goals. However, it also means she has a constant desire to meet expectations placed upon her and to appear just as perfect as she is expected to be. This constant requirement for perfection and hard work meant that she was always studying, working hard, keeping poised, and doing her best to be liked.

Throughout schooling her parents always insisted on "free time" being used for studying and improving with the closest thing to "hobbies" being those that someone of her stature should study like song, dance, painting, or other more artistic talents. However, she approaches all of these from a very mathematical perspective causing her to follow recipes perfectly or play any music she has studied. If asked to write her own piece or mix up a recipe she would be lost.

To those that know her (and that's most students in the Garden), Aoimi appears to be the perfect example of a proper lady. Refined, modest, prim, proper, smart, and an experienced Esper at that! She comes across as a girl who has it all. She's rich both in her home life and due to her Esper level. She has plenty of friends. And if not for the fact that the Garden keeps boys out, she would probably be swamped in declarations of love.

This constant drive for perfection and improvement has caused her to do very well in school and her manners and grace caused her to appear as the model woman and perfect student. Any flaws were meant to be suppressed, hidden, and corrected. During both her years in high school, her hard work, friendliness, poise, grace, and drive caused her to be selected as the class rep. A position she accepted as she promised to do her best and help her class with anything they needed.

This is because Aoimi is terrible at declining when asked for assistance. If somebody is in need and is relying on her, Aoimi feels compelled to help them constantly putting others before her self to an unhealthy level. She needs to meet their expectations as a perfect and helpful young woman and she fears that turning down a request would disappoint the person. However, there is a limit to what a person can do and Aoimi constantly pushes herself past these limits. She would constantly be stressed and end up short on sleep as she tried to do everything herself while also studying, practicing, and more.

This constant drive for perfection, following the rules, being a good girl, and doing everything expected of her eventually became too much and caused a private mental breakdown her first year in high school as the massive build-up finally was too much and it all caught up to her. Of course, she hide this breakdown and kept up her act in public because she was raised to not show weakness. This breakdown caused the young woman to decide to just try and break a few tiny rules and lead to her sneaking out of the dorms and Garden after curfew for some 'fun on the town'. These trips became moments for her to stretch her wings and feel like she was doing something for herself and eventually lead to the creation of the second aspect of Aoimi.

Captain Carbon. Captain Carbon is Aoimi's "release" from her repressed and stressed out life style. With so many different emotions and feelings yanking her around, Aoimi created Captain Carbon as a way to try and compartmentalize her life and give herself more enjoyment while keeping "Aoimi" as the good girl that everyone expected her to be. She kept this side secret even from her friends out of fear of what they might think of her. After all, running around at night and punching criminals and playing superheroes was "childish", "immature", "brutish", and not fitting of a good girl. What would her friends think if their images of her were shattered like that?

As such, Captain Carbon became a release and an escape as she used that persona to do all the things that she felt "Aoimi" could never do all while chasing the adrenaline rush of stopping criminals. If there is one thing that Captain Carbon and Aoimi both share, it is that desire to help others and get that acceptance she craves. Other than that, Captain Carbon functions almost as an opposite of Aoimi. While Aoimi is calm and poised, Captain Carbon is hyper and wild, chasing evil do-ers and fighting baddies! While Aoimi is quiet and reserved, Captain Carbon is loud and has a thirst for justice! While Aoimi tries to follow the rules and refrain from making a scene, Captain Carbon is willing to be a vigilante and break the rules if it helps someone! While Aoimi is modest and pure and would never admit her feelings towards her classmate, Arisu, Captain Carbon is more than willing to hit on any beautiful girl she can find. Captain Carbon does everything to be cool, charming, and heroic! The hero is the manifestation of everything Aoimi thinks the "Coolest" Super Hero would be! Why the crazy outfit and mysterious identity? BECAUSE ITS COOLER THAT WAY!

In short, Aoimi is a repressed, prim and proper girl, trying to meet the expectations of perfections that her parents and rank in school have pushed on her. The stressed caused her to create a persona of freedom and release that can allow her to have more excitement in life. Unfortunately at the moment, she is rebelling a bit too hard and seems to suffer from chronic hero syndrome and needs to find a better balance between her two personas.

Background

Aoimi Aozaki is the heiress and only child of the prestigious Aozaki family known throughout most of Japan for having handlings in so many business and media that it is hard to track their total wealth due to all the puppet corporations under them. However, when Academy City was first starting, the Aozaki's made the foolish mistake of ignoring it and not viewing it as worth any manner of investment.

This mistake would cause them much regret as they found this futuristic city ended up becoming the largest missed investment possibility and for eight years there was no sign of them being able to ever get much benefit of the city. However, when Aozaki was born, that changed. Academy City had started a program that invited students to come three years before her birth. By the time she was ten, the Aozaki family had decided to send the girl to Academy City to partake in this school and hopefully move up and bring the Aozaki family power and influence.

As such at ten years old Aozaki was admitted into Academy City and joined the Power Curriculum Program after enrolling in a prestigious all-girls elementary school as her parents wanted to ensure the girl's focus was solely on growing in power for the family and being 'the perfect student'. For two years, Aoimi Aozaki worked hard and her power grew. By the time she finished Elementary School, Aoimi was a level 3. Her parents then insisted on her attending Tokiwadai due to its prestige. Aoimi was constantly stressed to keep working hard, study hard, be a great student, and be good enough. Although it was stressful and she had to work nearly non-stop, Aoimi made it and for three years attended Tokiwadai during which time she reached level four, though at that point she found herself hitting a dead end and struggling to find anyway to reach level five no matter how hard she worked.

With her graduation from Tokiwadai Middle School and Level-4 status, things looked good for Aoimi, she was rich both from her family and her Esper work, she was smart, a hard worker, and of a powerful position. Yet despite this she still wasn't a level 5 and in her parents' eyes that meant she needed to keep working harder. As she attended High School, Aoimi was growing more and more stressed and overworked. No matter what she tried she was still limited by touch. She was still only able to strengthen or weaken, not fully manipulate. Were it not for her sheer power at strengthening and weakening, she probably wouldn't have even made it to four.

However, in order to remain "perfect" and "a proper student", Aoimi had to keep this stress bottled inside and keep up her smile and friendly attitude. In High School she was popular, friendly, and even got selected as Class Rep, a job which she knew she had to do her best in to meet the expectations of her classmates. Another job. More expectations. More work. More people that relied on her. More people that demanded of her.

Aoimi was slowly breaking all while making sure to spend time with her friends, go shopping, play happy, play easy, play peaceful, play perfect, don't break, don't let them see, don't ruin their image of you. More and more, harder and harder. She had to work hard for her parents to reach level 5, work hard for her class to be the best representative, study to keep her perfect grades, train to master her power, spend time with her friends to not be anti-social, she couldn't do it all!

Finally, Aoimi realized she needed something other than this 'perfect' life. She needed to do something on her own rather than just what people expected of her. And as such Aoimi's desire to rebel began to grow as a tiny seed. She was so terrified of being caught and ruining the image people had of her that she spent weeks casually scouting the School Garden security to try and find the best way to sneak out one night. After weeks of nervously checking out the best ways in and out to avoid people and jumping back and forth between going through with it or not, the night of Aoimi's first steps of her own choosing arrived.

Grabbing a hoodie and tucking her long red hair inside it, Aoimi snuck out after curfew one night and decided to check out the real city outside her gilded cage of the School Garden. The first night was a nerve wrecking experience as the young woman was constantly questioning if someone saw her or if people knew she had snuck out. However, despite the paranoia and fear, Aoimi realized something laying in her bed back at the dorm that night after she snuck back in. She had actually had a bit of fun. The city had looked so different and futuristic compared to the more traditional look of the Garden. There had been so much to see, so much to explore, that she found herself wanting to see even more of it.

And thus began the decent of the "perfect" girl Aoimi Aozaki. The young woman began sneaking out when she could, exploring the city, checking out the sights and smells and tastes. She didn't worry about how 'healthy' the food was or how 'proper' the outfits she tried on in the stores were. She began watching late-night actions movies at theaters in District 15 and fell in love with superhero movies. Sure, they were not educational and just "brain-melting" time-wasters that "someone of her level of intelligence" shouldn't waste time with. But despite that, or perhaps because of it, she loved them anyways. And bit by bit Aoimi's stress began to go down. Sure, at school she had to pretend like nothing happened, even around her best friends, but at night she could have fun and try things she would never get the chance to.

It didn't take many trips into the city, however, before Aoimi realized that there was a lot more darker parts of the city compared to the School Garden. With most her life being spent either in the secure Garden or her parents manor, Aoimi hadn't seen the darker sides of humanity, much less the darker sides of this particular city. It started with something simple. Like usual, the young girl had thrown on her hoodie and snuck out of the city, but this time she came across a group of thugs while cutting through an alleyway. A young beautiful girl all alone and defenseless? This was Aoimi's first time having to fight, much less defend herself. And despite the fact that she was a level four against a handful of skill-out, her lack of experience made it very difficult. She took many hard hits and bruises and only won due to strengthening her hoodie hard enough to break the hands of one of the men punching her. However, just as she was gloating about being able to stop them she took a painful blow to her exposed head and was nearly knocked unconscious. As she hit the ground, fear filled Aoimi as her own safety caused her to regret not just running. If only she could run! Forget all this! But she was surrounded, dazed, and now being beat on. Luckily, the time the brawl had gone on mixed with the sounds had attracted attention. While she was struggling to maintain consciousness and fearing the worst she heard footsteps as someone ran over to intervene. With her vision and conscious dazed from the hit to the head and other punches she had taken before she had thought to armor her hoodie, she didn't remember much about who helped her other than that it was a dark haired male who had got their attention and been forced to run off as all the thugs turned on him instead.

That night was Aoimi's worst trip into the city and she weakly returned back to the dorms bruised, acking, and nervous about something like that happening again. It was quite difficult making up an excuse for her injuries the next day, but nobody would expect the perfect girl of sneaking out so luckily even with her poor lies, people believe her. It took her about a week before her fear was able to be suppressed enough for her to try sneaking out into the city again hoping to find and thank the person who had helped her. However, as she wandered the city this time she couldn't help but notice the darker areas and alleyways. And by noticing and not glossing over these she started hearing people's need for help. While the city appeared beautiful and peaceful in the light, there were darker corners of it where people were being preyed on like she had almost been. Except that a hero had saved her. These people didn't have a hero. Or did they?

Despite her fear of that same pain as last time, Aoimi couldn't turn away from someone who needed help. Her journeys into the city started becoming less about food, movies, shopping, and exploring and instead became attempts to help people like she had been helped. Her first few trips were definitely learning experiences as she had little knowledge of fighting and only her Esper abilities allowed her to do much. However, she was able to advance these powers by playing hero. She learned that by strengthening gloves she could hit harder and that the more clothes she wore the more she could armor. She started wearing full body trench coats, and then a hood. However, if she was going to be a hero a trench coat and a hoodie just clashed way too much. Bit by bit the young woman began assembling her "superhero" costume to "help those in need" and "fight evil-doers."

As she went out in her costume and fought and helped people, she started realizing that the adrenaline and the fighting and the saving others was exciting, thrilling, and a chance to use her powers for something meaningful! This desire to help others and have her power be more than just a science experiment caused the young woman to try out various 'heroic' names. Carbonator, The Carbon Fist, Carbon Marvel... until finally she self-named herself "Captain Carbon!" Her trips to the city drifted further and further away from just rebelling. No, she was helping clean up the city! She had once heard that Espers had ceased to be human and had become something like a manga protagonist and for the first time ever she understood that claim. Just strengthening and weakening an object was a poor hero, but somebody who could strengthen their fist or take hits for others with an impenetrable defense? THAT was a hero!

As more and more nights became focused on living this life of "Captain Carbon", this hero became her release. Aoimi began to split these two and used Captain Carbon to help her "release" stress and "enjoy" life. It probably wasn't right that she was enjoying the thrill of the fight, but... that wasn't why she was doing it! She was doing it to be a hero! To defeat evil doers and protect the weak! Aoimi was the good girl who followed the rules, studied, and did whatever she was told. But Captain Carbon was the paragon of justice! The one who helped people and made the ladies swoon with her dashing charm and powerful techniques.

For over a year, Aoimi kept up this persona. She began to get very good at lying and covering up the occasional bruises (which became less and less common the more she fought and adapted). Finally, Aoimi was able to win fights both because of her powers and her fighting talent. This was especially important as it was around that time that people who shouldn't have had any serious powers suddenly started becoming much bigger threats. Rather than just fighting Skill-Out thugs, she started coming across other Espers who were hurting others. However, her previous fights had prepared her and things were still going well. After all, she was Captain Carbon, and she was invincible!

Or so she thought...

It was a night out on the town looking for damsels to rescue, or baddies to defeat , and enjoying life while hopefully one day being loved by cute girls everywhere! As she was looking for trouble a young boy ran up to her asking if she was a Hero based on her outfit and begging for a "Hero" to save him. He claimed that people were after him and he needed protection. Aoimi had offered to take the child to Anti-Skill, but the kid seemed insistent on avoiding them. Aoimi offered to take the child somewhere private to talk and keep him safe and the two made their way through district 7 in one of the gardens.

While Aoimi tried to think of what to do, suddenly a bunch of black vans pulled up on the scene and a group of fully covered men in black poured out pointing guns at both of them. Aoimi quickly strengthened her coat and stepped in front of the child giving her best hero pose. However, before she could demand they leave or hear a villain monologue, the people immediately went to attacking. Aoimi wasn't about to allow the poor child to be kidnapped and with her strengthened coat moved forward toward the crowd quickly before taking a powerful blast to the chest from some weird heavy weapon. Despite the fact that her vitals had been protected the sheer impact had knocked her to the ground. The fight lasted much shorter than Aoimi would ever like to admit as the group showed immense coordination and technology working together to restrain her, find openings in her outfit, and get cuts or hits where they could. Some of their weapons, even blocked by her coat, were enough to bruise and batter her as the woman was knocked around between each one barely able to fight back.

Urging the kid to run, Aoimi tried to hold back the group, but was quickly subdued and badly injured. She wanted to run, she was scared, but she had to hold them off as long as she could so the kid could escape. She gasped and panted and pushed her body as far as she could despite the fact she was very severely wounded and bleeding out. Each time she was put down, she weakly forced herself back to her feet. She could barely even defend herself and between each strike, hit, and throw to the ground all she could see was others dragging the kid into a van and driving off. Desperate to help, Aoimi fought even harder knowing she had to catch up to the van before it was out of sight. But no matter what she tried the woman was outclassed, bleeding out, bruised, and outmatched. Finally, no matter how hard Aoimi tried to get up, her body had reached its limits. The world faded to black as she weakly reached out toward the retreating van. Finally, she passed out from blood loss. This was how she died. Failing to save someone who needed her. Bleeding out in a park.

The next few days were the first time Aoimi ever missed class. After a few days, she woke up in the hospital and learned she had been found there with a torn up coat and countless injuries. Somebody had called Anti-Skill and they had barely arrived in time to take her to a hospital where she had been treated despite most expecting her to not survive. This was the worst beating Aoimi had ever taken, even worse than her first fight. And the worst part of all was that she had failed to protect the kid from being taken. Shortly after she woke up, a person arrived with a phone saying they had a call for her. The mysterious voice mentioned they had called Anti-Skill and ensured that she had survived. They mentioned her failure to help the kid and how working alone had been her problem. The man wanted to make the city a better place and was looking to recruit her for help. Aoimi was hesitant at first since she had barely recovered and had no clue what the man was. But when a potential clue to help the kid who needed her was dangled in front of her, the girl quickly took the bait and accepted the offer.

After three days in the hospital, Aoimi was released and returned to school. Luckily, with her whereabouts being relatively unknown, people hadn't visited her in the hospital to hear what her injuries were. Aoimi made up a story about an accident on the way to school and her friends were none the wiser though still worried about her health.

Despite her pain though, it was the failure to protect a child that hung on Aoimi. She didn't know when the man would contact her again, but it was she was a hero, people needed her help, and it was clear that she could do more with a team than by herself.
