History: A girl who grew up ridiculed for her ability. Growing up among peers who possessed magic, she was often pitied and laughed at because of her <<Extension>> affinity. Called the most useless branch of magic, most suggested she pursue the path of a non-magic user instead, becoming a swordsmaiden or learning to be an ideal wife. Despite that, she disregarded their jibes and chose to forge her own path as a machinist, a creator of mechanical objects. She set her dream to be the world’s greatest machinist, and worked toward that goal.

Due to her mana signature resonating with Lily’s, she was compelled by her nature as a shield to follow and serve Lily, or face severe discomfort. While she did it begrudgingly at first, she’s come to enjoy being in Lily’s company, and has come to her own decision to protect Lily as best she can, considering Lily to be a special existence. Good friends with Iris, bound by a common desire to keep Lily alive.

She is highly intelligent and curious, learning new things quickly and digesting new information easily.
