Aiko has fair skin, large black eyes, and long light brown hair that reaches the middle of her back, with her bangs parted to the left to cover her left eye. She is a curvy young woman with a more slender frame with standard muscle structure for female saiyans. Her outfit consists of a pale green dress that reaches past her knees, a pale yellow undershirt that covers her wrists, a forest green sweater with a hood on the back she often used to hide herself, and a pair of fur-lined brown boots.
As a child, Aiko loves life as much as any other child would at her age, but because of the unforeseen circumstances due to her birth, her mother had tried to keep Aiko from exploring the outside world as much as possible for fear of her safety. During most of her childhood, Haruka often told Aiko many stories about the great feats her father had done during his life before his mysterious disappearance. And upon seeing how much thinking about her father seemed to make her mother happy, Aiko had secretly began to use her father's old magic books to help further her own skills. There were times where she would want to meet her father, and often looked forward to the day when he would return to her and her mother to be a family once more. But one day while she went outside against her mother's wishes, Aiko had come face-to-face with the only other person she had ever met in her short life, a man named Zalgor who was after her for some reason. After trying to run from the man for her life, Aiko could only watch as her already weakened mother used what little energy she had left to preform a spell which protected the two and drove the man away, but the spell had taken too much of a toll on Haruka's body, and ended up leaving her daughter mere minutes after the fight.
After that happened, Aiko became fearful of the outside world, or more specifically, the people that often ventured into the forest she called her home. When they would see her, they would be terrified and call her a witch in fear, sometimes throwing stones at her and fearing for their lives, which left Aiko with a low sense of self-esteem. During her teen years she had already learned to live off the land on her own and made friends with the woodland creatures but even so, she never truly forgave herself for being the indirect cause of her mother's death.
After meeting Zone Mayes on one faithful day, Aiko's life had changed dramatically, she had actually found someone who wasn't afraid of her and someone who was actually kind to her. After meeting Mace, Gono, and Talon, she was convinced to join the Grand Planet Academy and start a new life the way her mother had originally wanted, for her to make friends and enjoy the outside world instead of fearing it. But it wasn't until she went to the academy that the other students learned that she had a powerful cursed placed on her left eye from birth, and anyone who would look into it, would cause Aiko to undergo a dramatic transformation and leave nothing but a path of destruction and pain in her wake. Even though she continues to live with the curse, Aiko is still curious about her father, and still wishes to meet him just to see what kind of a person he is, and if he really is as wonderful a man as her mother had told her.
On the outside:
As a sheltered girl who never saw the world much, Aiko has a rather timid and meek personality. At first, she was scared of being around a lot of people at once and had a hard time talking to people as well. She comes off as a shy girl who has a hard time actually speaking up when the moment calls for it.
As an academy student and mage-in-training, Aiko is shown to get fairly good grades in normal school subjects and just struggles with physical education and some parts of biology, she also sees her friends as very important and will go out of her way to protect them. Her greatest strength is her determination, when her mind is set to something, she will not rest until it is completed. After the death of her mother, she never wanted to see another important person die in front of her again which fueled her learning the healing arts.
Her kind and caring nature, as well as her inability to see the bad in some people has led to some of the other students deeming her a saint, she is even able to tolerate Excalibur without trying to murder him, a first in the school's history. The one thing that will make Aiko mad is if she is seeing or hearing a lot of fighting going on for extended periods of time, she prefers peace and is a pacifist and will get angry if peacefully asking them to stop will not work. In other aspects, she is an open book emotionally, it is easy to tell when she is happy, sad, or angry, since she's never really had to hide her emotions before.
On the inside:
Underneath her kind smile, Aiko is a person who has a low sense of self-confidence. While she does treasure her friends and the bonds she has created, she is also scared that each day could be another chance for those bonds to break and lead her back to her lonely life in the forest once more. She is also scared of herself due to her curse and fears that she could end up actually hurting her friends and causing them to leave her alone again. she also still holds the guilt of her mother's death deep in her heart, and truly believes that it was her fault that her mother had died that day.
Whenever she is alone, she will gaze at the few pictures she has of her mother for as long as she can and shed tears in remembrance to her.
During a battle:
During a fight, Aiko is always the first to rush in to heal whomever has been injured, and though hand-to-hand combat isn't her best skill, she will rush in to defend one of her friends if they need her help. Due to her living in the forest her whole life, Aiko has a heightened sense of smell and hearing that helps her predict enemy attacks and movements, better using them to her advantage. Her strategy is simply to provide backup and support to the rest of her team.
Early Life In The Forest
Aiko Minami was born to her parents Malkior and Haruka Minami on an afternoon of May 5th, while visiting the academy. Malkior was known for being a Warlock-Level mage and one of the very few saiyan mages in existence to reach that level on his own, the only other being Akina Minami a long time ago. Haruka was known for her healing arts and made her living as a doctor, treating those who didn't have the money for hospitals. After having Aiko, Malkior had suddeny gone missing while on a mission to a nearby planet. His old team members searched tirelessly for him but there were no traces of him to be found. And his search party eventually called off but Haruka had faith that one day Malkior would return. After learning that Aiko was born with a curse that was bestowed on her by her father, Haruka decided to move deep into the forest in order to protect her child from whatever effects of the curse it may have on her. When Aiko was growing up, she enjoyed spending time with her mother and being outdoors, like any other normal child.
Learning Magic – Haruka's Death
After hearing stories about her father and how much her mother seemed to love magic, Aiko decided that she would try to learn magic on her own. In the hopes of one day finally meeting her father like her mother wanted for her.
But while Aiko was learning, she was unaware that Haruka had also been cursed with a mysterious spell that was slowly eating away at her life, leaving her weakened and more by each passing day.
One day, while practicing her magic outside while her mother slept, Aiko came across a man named Zalgor who seemed to know who she was. Right away, Aiko could tell that Zalgor was not to be trusted and tried to run back to the cottage as fast as she could.
When Haruka heard her screams, she quickly ran out to see the man she had only seen once before at the academy, an old acquaintance of her father.
In her weakened state, Haruka knew that she couldn't hope to beat this man on her own, but she wasn't about to let him take her child away from her. After tacking the man, she managed to get Aiko free and tried to run back to their home with the girl.
But after being hit with a single spell, Haruka only watched as her daughter tried to flee from the man. Knowing that this could spell the end of her life, Haruka summoned every ounce of life energy from herself and used it in a single blast of energy, driving Zalgor away.
At first, Aiko was relieved to be safe but was then horrified when she saw her mother cough up blood and fall over onto the forest floor. She cried and begged her mother to get back up, but Haruka had died almost instantly, leaving her eight year old daughter to fend for herself.
After burying her mother in the forest floor, Aiko came to the realization that if someone like Zalgor had existed in the world, than the world had to be a horrifying place her mother had tried to keep her safe from. And from then on, was too afraid to leave the forest.
Meeting Zone Mayes – Accepted into the Grand Planet Academy.
It had been eight years since Haruka's death. Aiko, now at the age of sixteen, had learned how to survive on her own in the forest. She had a large garden behind her home which gave her enough food to survive, and after making friends with the forest animals, had gotten them to get things for her from the city that she couldn't get on her own.
But it was during those eight years that she had earned herself a nickname- the witch of the forest. Every time someone had wandered into the forest, she would try to help guide them out. But every time she did, they either screamed and ran for dear life, cried and begged for her to spare their life, or simply thrown stones at her to keep her at bay.
During that time, Aiko had become aware of her curse, and believed herself to be nothing more than a monster that could never leave the forest.
It was during one of her outings deeper into the forest that she came home to find Mace, Gono, and Talon in her home. After Mace explained that her father was once a student at the academy, they had convinced her to go to the academy as well for an actual education.
But it was while she was packing that she had met Zone Mayes, a teenage boy who was skeptical about the rumors going around his school of an evil witch who lived in the forest near his home and decided to investigate.
When he had found Aiko, Aiko was surprised to see that he wasn't scared of her at all, that he was actually being kind to her, something she had never experienced before. And after watching Zone easily defeat a demon that had come to the forest due to Aiko's erratic magical energy, he was offered an acceptance into the academy as well.
After finally making a friend and bidding farewell to her mother, Aiko left the forest for the first time in her life, the first step to starting a new life.

(After coping with Haruka's death) ”Mother... Please forgive me, it's all my fault. It was all my fault that you had to defend me. I used to wonder why you didn't want us to live in the city. But now I understand why, the world is a terrifying place, isn't it?”
