Appearance[edit | edit source]
Typical Appearance[edit | edit source]
Meruru general appears with her hair tied up into two buns on the sides of her head and some sort of loose, long-sleeved shirt. While the girl is fond of bright colors, her wardrobe consists of primarily neutral or darkly colored clothing. She dresses rather boyishly for the most part, finding herself 'unsuited' for feminine clothing given her thin and boyish figure. For the most part, she uses long sleeves to conceal the fact that there is considerable scarring on her arms and upper back. This habit first started, however, when she noticed the unfinished tattoos on both of her arms. Unsure of how she felt about these mysterious designs herself, she prefers to keep them out of sight to avoid unwanted questions.
If her hair is untied, one would be able to see that it is quite long. However, that is rare as Meruru almost never leaves her hair down, finding the constant movement of the hair annoying. Though concealed by the fringes of her bangs most of the time, she also has two piercings in her right ear cartilage and one in each of her ear lobs.
Mage Form Appearance[edit | edit source]
In her Mage form, Meruru takes on features of an Asian dragon. A number of changes occur in the process of her transformation, including the development of slit-pupil eyes, the darkening of her hair, the growth of horns and a scaled tail, as well as the sharpening of her nails into claws. Her outfit, primarily red, is accented by bits of lime green. See picture for more details.
She has used a Mage Paintbrush so her mage appearance does look a bit different now. Also she has an alternate outfit from Fabulous potion which has yet to be revealed.
Changes in Appearance[edit | edit source]
After her fight with a Baby Pyredoradora, Meru received significant burn scars along her arms as well as part of her back.
Perguise Potion[edit | edit source]
Consumed April 2012, before Ball of Loons. Does not seem to have an obvious outward effect?
Ball of Loons[edit | edit source]
For the Ball of Loons, Meruru wore an outfit consisting of a black silk blouse accented by a blue ribbon, a blue layered skirt, a black velvet vest, lace stockings, and black suede boots. Her accessories included long black velvet gloves, silver bangles, a silver ring, as well as a mother-of-pearl brooch and pearl earrings. Her mask was in the shape of a blue rose covering her left eye, opposite of the eye patch on Kohl Emmerson who was her date to the dance. She also wore matching blue and white flowers in her hair to compliment the mask.
This was also one of the few occasions on which she wore her hair in pigtails, instead of buns.
Royal Ball[edit | edit source]
For the Royal Ball, Meruru took a potion which made her appear as a prince. She took the mage Mei as her date, and had many dashing adventures while appearing as a man.
Age Potion[edit | edit source]
Purchased January of 2014. Yet to be used.
Temporary Changes[edit | edit source]
Some short termed changes include, but are not limited to: transformation into an ostrich (Beasty Beet), adult Meruru (Age-screw Day), and rainbow hair (random event).
Personality[edit | edit source]
Loud, brash, and almost utterly tactless, Meruru is a blunt and straight forward girl. She rarely takes time to think before she acts, a habit that has gotten her impatient self in trouble in the past. For the most part, she takes actions based on intuition, and is driven for a large part by her curiosity in the unknown. Oddly enough, however, she seems to be easily delighted and satisfied by almost any answer to her questions - even if they do seem outrageous or absolutely implausible (a.k.a. she has an incredibly low IQ). Perhaps as a result of her lack of need to question what she sees or learns, she is a rather accepting individual most of the time and sees a friend in just about everyone that crosses her path - even those who have wronged her. Not much for shyness, she acts pretty much the same around just about everyone - upbeat, energetic, and constantly plowing ahead. Determined to keep what griefs she has to herself, she doesn't often appear to be glum or upset (except about petty things) around others in public except at funerals, where she finds it impossible to feign high spirits.
Sometimes, in order to allow things to continue as they are, Meruru comes up with her own ways of explaining why or how something happened. Of course, she keeps these rationalization to herself as she secretly believes sharing them with others makes them untrue. For example, she believes that funerals are supposed to be goodbye parties for someone who had recovered all of their memories and had already returned to their old lives. Death is still rather foreign concept to her, as she cannot simply wrap her head around the idea of simply not existing.
After having spent some time on Fyrst, however, her views have turned less optimistic than before. She is less trusting in many ways, especially after having discovered that Tarot Dun was the one who had killed her first friend on Fyrst, Peri. The idea of deception has shattered her perception of others and she has been at a loss as to what to do. Though she remains still somewhat oblivious and typically friendly to strangers, she is not as audacious as she had been in the fast to proclaim her friendship with others.
Background[edit | edit source]
Meruru had arrived over a year ago, and has settled in at her house in E village. While she still knows nothing of her past except for the name she was given, she does not appear to be excessively bothered by her missing memories. In her conversations with others, she has expressed the idea that perhaps it is best what happened in the past is forgotten, though this is mostly due to her fear that she had been a bad person before Fyrst, if such a time ever existed.
Memory Triggers[edit | edit source]
Spoiler and trigger warning. You have been warned.
Currently... no memory trigger.
Past[edit | edit source]
Spoiler warning. You have been warned.
It is myst! But here's a little bit of info to whet your appetites: Meruru grew up in an extremely impoverished neighborhood (which explains her stunted development) in a world dominated by violence. She had been once a very ambitious and cunning individual, as she had to be in order to ensure the survival of herself and those close to her. However, all of that was erased with the complete obliteration of her memories. Her unfinished tattoos in present Fyr'st links back to her 'past', and are significant to her in a way she does not understand yet.
Relationships[edit | edit source]
Friends with... a lot of people... dead... people. OTL

Abilities[edit | edit source]
Boom Shockalaka[edit | edit source]
- Description: Bolts of lightning shoots towards the enemy as directed by her fans. Closing the fans charges up the attacks.
- Side Effect 30% chance of stun depending on conditions, may increase with rain.
Thunder Boom Boom[edit | edit source]
- Description: Essentially she 'overcharges' one of her fans by zapping it with lightning, frying it in the process and rendering unusable until the next transformation. A large bolt of lightning races out of the now useless fan, up her arm, and grows until it's in the vague image of a dragon. It strengthens any other electric attacks while it's present, and static electricity may cause random stun. Once in attack mode, the bolt is allowed one strike with 85% accuracy and 85% stun. If the intended target is wet, both percentages become 100%. Overcharging both fans at the same time and sacrificing both creates a more powerful version where is she allowed two strikes instead of one. MAG is halved after Special is used for the duration of the transformation.
