Will do reading and commenting later. Maybe tomorrow if school does the schedule screwup I'm dreading they're going to do. For now though, I finally managed to lay the last hand on Syn's profile V 3.0
Name: Syn Virage
Mage rank: AAA
Magic type: Belkan
Magic colour: Blue
Hair color: Blue
Eye color: heterochromia, her right eye is red, while her left eye is blue.
Hair style: Syn’s hairstyle varies often, as both her mother and Vivio love to play with her hair.

A tall girl, Syn easily towers above her friends, standing a good half a head taller than Vivio, Corona or Lio.
Blunt, sharp with the tongue and a smartass to boot. The terror of teachers, you could say. Syn can be extremely annoying at times, driving people up the walls with smart remarks. Smartass she may be, though, she is not stupid. Most of the times when she is in one of her moods, she will drive to the edge, but never over it. If she is not in one of her moods –which must be said, is more often the case-, you will find that while she may poke fun at other people’s expense, she doesn’t mean it in a harmful way. When encountering Syn on one of her more calm moods, she is easy to get along with, albeit a bit stubborn. Informal and casual, she addresses almost anyone as if she would a friend.
A tough girl through and through, you will rarely see Syn dress in overly feminine clothing. Though she doesn’t mind a simple skirt and such, the keyword is ‘simple.’ Overly frilly clothing and long dresses are something you’ll have a hard time getting Syn into. If there is a way to thoroughly embarrass her, this is probably it.
Syn if often willing to help if you ask it, and she finds it enjoyable to simply have a nice conversation to pass the time. She can get very defensive on subjects and locking horns with her in an argument means spending time getting through her stubbornness, as she tries to keep an open mind, but at times fails completely. She also has a habit of losing focus if a task at hand doesn’t hold her interest, which result in her usually finishing everything frantically at the last time. Miraculously, Syn rarely misses deadlines.
Syn has a great interest in magi-technology, and is often studying things like Devices or other forms of technology running on magic. She has shown great talent in this area, and already she has been taken under the wing of Vivio’s friends in the area, who help her studies whenever they have the time. A bookworm and a technician, when she is around in libraries, it’s easy to recognize by the tools floating or lying around.
A great fan of pancakes for breakfast, Syn can eat a scary number of them. Aside from pancakes Syn is a real fish lover, particularly for dinner. Ironically, she is quite the picky eater. There’s a lot of things Syn doesn’t like, and when Syn doesn’t like things, her body tends to start hurling it back up, making any ‘finish your plate’ rule rather useless with her.
Syn is a Mid-Childan born girl, her parents being high-ranking officers in the navy, the talent for magic was quickly discovered and a career in the TSAB seems almost assured. However, when it came to picking a school, Syn was more interested in going to the far calmer school run by the Saint Church. Her parents agreed easily, possibly because they realized schools run, or otherwise funded by the TSAB may show favoritism.
It was there that Syn met Vivio, who had come to visit the school to be shown around. Syn jumped at the chance to show the new kid around, and quickly befriended Vivio. The two then quickly befriended Corona during one of their many bookhunts in the library, and Lio later on. It was around the time Vivio began experimenting with the adult mode that Syn began experimenting with her own device. After many months, and a bit of help from device meisters Shari and Aurion, Syn managed to finish a rough version own device. When Vivio mastered her adult form, Syn was not intent to be outdone and immediately launced into transformation magic training. Any comment that this was due to Vivio’s endless teasing on being taller has always been firmly denied.
Syn’s parents are rather high standing members of the TSAB. Her mother, Elena Virage, is an admiral famed for her brilliant ship maneuvers. Elena herself is a AA-rank mage, and has taken a ground post after she became pregnant with Syn. Calm and gentle, Elena loves doting on her daughter. On the downside of that, she also loves dressing Syn as a lady… a part of her mother Syn really could do without. Through Syn, Elena has become good friends with Nanoha, who she tries to help in her task of raising Vivio.

Syn’s father, Kaith Virage, is a captain of the
, a TSAB warship. While his duties often take him away from home, he still manages to get back often enough to see his wife and daughter. His subordinates often joke that his high rate of success is because nobody dares stand between him and his wife and kid. Kaith is well known for his inspiring leadership and diplomacy skills. A B-rank mage, Kaith is not among the elite mages, yet many people respect him for his verbal skills. Preventing a fight is often more commendable than winning one.

Device and Barrier Jacket:
Device name: Helskor.
Device type: Armed, equip.
Magic type: Belkan.
Helskor is a device created by Syn herself (although with the help and resources of the more experienced Shari and Aurion). Helskor specializes in enhancing her leg strength. This makes Syn quite fast, while maintaining a solid defense. On the downside, she has little in the way of ranged attacks beyond standard Belkan ones (which, really, don't have that much range either), and zero flight capability, though she managed to partially circumvent that last weakness by taking a leaf out of her teacher's book and partially mimicking Nove's Airliner, creating small platforms in mid-air for her to stand on and kick off, giving her limited aerial capabilities.
While the Device is Belkan, Helskor is programmed with a Mid language pack. This is mostly because Syn prefers programming in Mid. As a result, the Device speaks fluent Mid rather than Belkan, and addresses Syn, Lio and Corona with ‘Milady’ while addressing Vivio with ‘your majesty.’
As the Device’s appearance suggests, Syn prefers attacking with her feet, While she does have a fair punching fist, she still prefers downing her opponents with lighting fast kicks that pack a pounding. This leads Syn to sometimes pull acrobatic stunts in order to get more kicks in. In a more serious spar it’s not uncommon to see her bounding across the walls and ceilings.
Helskor is voiced by Ewan McGregor. That's right, Helskor's voice is nobody less than Obi-Wan Kenobi. <3
Syn is flat chested, even in adult mode. Much to her annoyance.
Helskor's design was based on Subaru's Mach Calibur, mixed with design elements of Erio's boots.
Syn's Barrier Jacket is better known among Shugo Chara watchers as Beat Jumper.
The name Syn came from playing with the name
, a planet in the Star Wars universe. A common way for me to get names. Virage comes from the
Aston Martin Virage
, sticking with the car name trope used so often in Nanoha.
