LYRICAL OF TIME
Sayoko is best described as a “tsundere”: she usually acts harsh towards other people to show them who’s in control, but is internally kindhearted and concerned of their welfare. She is a bit egotistical and always refuses to admit even small mistakes, which often drags her into endless arguments with her surrogate brother Takeru (this is worsened by the fact that Takeru likes to annoy her for her “flat chest”). She also blushes quite easily whenever she gets excited or embarrassed.
Sayoko isn’t good at cooking and every attempt done at the kitchen usually ends up with a burnt meal or, if luck’s with her, a chicken porridge. She is also concerned of her weight although she doesn’t have the willpower to control her eating habit, resulting in an “eat now, fret later” attitude. She also likes collecting ribbons and goggles, the latter often making her ridiculously declare “THE GOGGLES! THEY DO NOTHING!” whenever she puts on them.
Sayoko never talks of anything about her past, and chooses to avoid conversations whenever her family is mentioned.
// MC 0068 //
Sayoko came from the respected Winchester House, a powerful merchant family in the Antioch Republic that conducts salt and mineral trades with neighbouring nations. As the youngest heir of the clan, Sayoko was taught and trained on the mannerism of a well-behaved noble, and everybody had a soft spot for her in their hearts for her generosity towards all those who seeked for making business with her family.
Sayoko’s life took an abrupt turn when her whole family was assassinated after the Winchester House issued a decree to abolish the usage of Antioch Sterlings and instruct all merchants to switch to the more reliable Visalian Dollars. This enraged other influential families, especially the feuding Mauser Clan who intended to seize control of the currency for their own use. Terrified by the massacre happening before her eyes, Sayoko fled to northern Antioch but was continually pursued by the assassins who had been paid to erase any trace of Winchester House’s legacy.
Eventually the assassins had her cornered and executed a plan to kill her by blowing her hiding place with bombs. It was to be thwarted by the interference of the Belkan Empire’s Foxhound Unit, and Sayoko was later rescued after the Foxhounds stormed the assassins and rescued Sayoko.
When the Foxhounds returned to Belka, Sayoko was entrusted to the caretaking of Frieda since she was partly responsible for rescuring her from the assassins. At first Frieda was considering to give the orphan child to welfare house but after listening to advices from her colleagues she decided to bring Sayoko to her home in Comona Islands. Along her eight years of staying on the island, Sayoko personally learned the curve of magic systems from Frieda but was very afraid of becoming a member of any organization; it was understandable, since she had lost her family to another faction.
Sayoko’s new family expanded when Frieda adopted Takeru after she brought him back from Earth. At first she did not welcome his presence and frequently treated him as an inferior, always thinking that he would steal Frieda’s attention from her, but she later came to a mutual understanding with the boy after she accepted his role in the family although she still didn’t go along with him very well.

Currently Sayoko is applying for a membership in the Foxhound Unit after she is found to be an adept combatant. Although reluctant to fully use her potential strength in Visalian magic, Sayoko agrees to learn the magic system on slow paces.

Sayoko has no obvious talent in magic, but instead her field of specialty relies on reading and predicting enemy movement, therefore performing a counterattack before the enemy does. The skill is honed through extensive training under Frieda’s gunmanship, and it is further improved after Sayoko acquires the Silberkugel from Takeru. She also learns Gun Kata and even develops her own fighting style, which she dubs “Waltz of the Cloud”.
Sayoko’s device, Silberkugel, is designed to resemble the famous M1911 handgun. It has female voice, speaks in Visalian English after adjustments by Takeru and addresses Sayoko as “Madam”. Occassionally Silberkugel will take human form to provide assistance, whenever Sayoko sees fit.
Sayoko’s barrier jacket is designed to resemble a combat maid, complete with gloves and protective goggles. As in any Barrier Jacket, it protects its wearer from injury during impact or crash.
It deflects all attacks coming from the front or any direction the spell is aimed to.
This ability used for camouflage to conceal the caster from visual contact, therefore protecting the caster from being seen by target. However, against advanced-level detection ability this spell is rendered useless.
This ability increases the caster’s ability to dodge any oncoming attacks. Like its namesake suggests, the caster will be seen to have alter-images following behind.
This is not an attack, but refers to Silberkugel’s procedure of reloading a cartridge.
Also not an attack; Silberkugel says this when using cartridges.
Also not an attack, but refers to the ability to increase field of vision, therefore improving line of sight. This spell is also affected by other factors like weather, caster's willpower and, most important for a sniper, the target's ability to conceal itself via any methods.
AUG Assault Alpha
A basic shooting-type spell where the user merely compresses magic power in the shape of a bullet, accelerates it and sends it forth. It is Silberkugel’s primary attack.
AUG Assault Beta
A variation of the basic AUG Assault, it creates an explosive homing magic bullet that locks at the target’s heat signature. Its greatest advantage over other guided shooting spells is its automated homing ability, which leaves the caster free to perform another action.
AUG Formation Assault
More advanced than AUG Assault’s previous forms, this is Sayoko’s personal favourite move as it allows her to literally “dance” around the battlefield and exploits her naturalborn talent as waltz dancer. During the manoeuvre, both Alpha and Beta versions of AUG Assault are used to its maximum efficency although at the cost of cut speed and defence.
Silberkugell’s ultimate attack, the execution of this ability requires the dual handguns to combine and transform into a Gatling Gun. Then, after using all magic bullets and recycling all residual magic, Sayoko will fire the weapon at a large area, using all of its supply until it no longer has remaining energy. Because of its nature as “trump card”, this ability is used only as a last resort.
How tsundere she is? Well, let's be safe to wait until I post Takeru's rebuilt profile (and a short story to accompany).
