Background Story

 

Melbourne is the capital and most populous city of the Australian state of Victoria, and the second-most populous city in Australia. The name "Melbourne" refers to an urban agglomeration spanning 9,900 km2 (3,800 sq. mi) which comprises the broader metropolitan area, as well as being the common name for its city centre. The metropolis is located on the large natural bay of Port Phillip and expands into the hinterlands towards the Dandenong and Macedon mountain ranges, Mornington Peninsula and Yarra Valley. Melbourne consists of 31 municipalities. It has a population of 4,529,500 as of 2015, and its inhabitants are called Melburnians.

Founded by free settlers from the British Crown colony of Van Diemen's Land on 30 August 1835, in what was then the colony of New South Wales, it was incorporated as a Crown settlement in 1837.  It was named "Melbourne" by the Governor of New South Wales, Sir Richard Bourke, in honor of the British Prime Minister of the day, William Lamb, 2nd Viscount Melbourne. It was officially declared a city by Queen Victoria, whom Lord Melbourne was close to, in 1847, after which it became the capital of the newly founded colony of Victoria in 1851. During the Victorian gold rush of the 1850s, it was transformed into one of the world's largest and wealthiest cities. After the federation of Australia in 1901, it served as the nation's interim seat of government until 1927.

Melbourne rates highly in education, entertainment, health care, research and development, tourism and sport, making it the world's most livable city—for the sixth year in a row in 2016, according to the Economist Intelligence Unit. It is a leading financial centre in the Asia-Pacific region, and ranks among the top 30 cities in the world in the Global Financial Centres Index.  Referred to as Australia's "cultural capital", it is the birthplace of Australian impressionism, Australian rules football, the Australian film and television industries, and Australian contemporary dance. It is recognized as a UNESCO City of Literature and a major centre for street art, music and theatre. It is home to many of Australia's largest and oldest cultural institutions such as the Melbourne Cricket Ground, the National Gallery of Victoria, the State Library of Victoria and the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Royal Exhibition Building. It was the host city of the 1956 Summer Olympics.

The main passenger airport serving the metropolis and the state is Melbourne Airport (also called Tullamarine Airport), which is the second busiest in Australia, and the Port of Melbourne is Australia's busiest seaport for containerized and general cargo.  Melbourne has an extensive transport network. The main metropolitan train terminus is Flinders Street Station, and the main regional train and coach terminus is Southern Cross Station. Melbourne is also home to Australia's most extensive freeway network and has the world's largest urban tram network.

Back in the mid-1980s, a female swordswoman named Ryoko Hayabusa belong to an organization of assassins called “Oleander.”  Along with her brother Shinji, who became an unofficial nurse to their team, helped as much as he can.  Until that fateful day during a mission in Toronto, Canada.  Ryoko Hayabusa fought against countless hordes of Dark Nebula Coalition members.  She would come out of that brawl alive but she lost her right arm in the process.  Badly enough, Ryoko never really gave out a fully detailed reason how she lost her arm in the first place and the organization saw this as incompetence.  Unfortunately for Ryoko, she had to retire early being an assassin.  

Seeking solace elsewhere they ended up in Australia.  All those years being an assassin and putting her brother through emotional hell, Ryoko didn’t take no time at all letting her hair down and spending more time with Shinji; making up for all the trouble she had caused.  Turning a complete 180, she became a loving older sister rather than a coldhearted assassin.  However, it didn’t take long for Shinji to find solace elsewhere either.  In fact, he found himself paradise in the form a Hispanic woman named Joanna Rose.  Shinji and Joanna became inseparable, with some hefty coaching from his sister Ryoko.  One year later they became married, and in 1994, they introduced a couple more additions to their family.  A pair of twin daughters, Blair and Chelsea.

Ryoko and Shinji knowing their fate, both siblings knew they had a strong connection to the aether and it was only a matter of time that the Aetheral Queen will be looking for them to join The Nexus Crux.  Not stressing over the details of their development, Shinji and Joanna decided to raise both Blair and Chelsea normally.  Then going to school, them having friends and then going into daily activities.  Naturally, both Chelsea and Blair found their true individual callings in life.

Blair excelled in full contact sports such as rugby.  However, what Blair really loved to do in her spare time is reading Japanese comic books known as manga.  Blair and her father loved reading those novels and she became so infatuated with the art form she decided to draw and became a brilliant artist in the process.  So, her father encouraged her to pursue this passion of hers by being a manga artist.  But she would end up writing manga that contains strong sexual content called Doujins.  Fortunately, her father knows and he is very supportive.

Even though Ryoko is happy that her brother and her sister-in-law are not only nurturing their daughters to be positive and productive members of society, they still needed to defend themselves.  In secret, she started training them in martial arts.  However, she will hide their secret training in plain sight as she decided to take a job at a recreational center, teaching martial arts despite having one arm.  There, she would teach many troubled youths and adults in rehabilitation martial arts skills for exercising purposes, including her nieces.  While the patrons of the recreational center get basic training and lessons, her nieces get so much more than that.  

At age 7, it couldn’t be ignored anymore.  The two were incredibly aetheral sensitive and if they’re not ready, they would be taken by the Dark Nebula Coalition or even worse…  Ryoko started to teach both Blair and Chelsea various styles of martial arts like Jujutsu.  Jujutsu is a Japanese martial art and a method of close combat for defeating an armed and armored opponent in which one uses no weapon or only a short weapon.

"Jū" can be translated to mean "gentle, soft, supple, flexible, pliable, or yielding." "Jutsu" can be translated to mean "art" or "technique" and represents manipulating the opponent's force against himself rather than confronting it with one's own force. Jujutsu developed to combat the samurai of feudal Japan as a method for defeating an armed and armored opponent in which one uses no weapon, or only a short weapon. Because striking against an armored opponent proved ineffective, practitioners learned that the most efficient methods for neutralizing an enemy took the form of pins, joint locks, and throws. These techniques were developed around the principle of using an attacker's energy against him, rather than directly opposing it.

In addition to jujutsu, many schools teach the use of weapons. Jujutsu schools (ryū) may utilize all forms of grappling techniques to some degree (i.e. throwing, trapping, joint locks, holds, gouging, biting, disengagements, striking, and kicking).  There are many variations of the art, which leads to a diversity of approaches and the the variation of jujutsu that the twins learned from their aunt was Tenjin Shinyo-ryu.

Tenjin Shinyo-ryu, meaning "Divine True Willow School", can be classified as a traditional school (koryū) of jujutsu. It was founded by Iso Mataemon Ryūkansai Minamoto no Masatari in the 1830s. Once a very popular jujutsu system in Japan, among the famous students who studied the art were Kano Jigoro, whose modern art of judo was greatly inspired by the Tenjin Shin'yō-ryū and Kitō-ryū.

Essentially, Tenjin Shinyo-ryu is the amalgamation of two separate systems of jujutsu: the Yōshin-ryū and Shin no Shinto-ryu. The distinctive feature of this particular school is the use of atemi or strikes to disrupt the balance of the opponent as well as a more flexible and flowing movement of the body than seen in some older schools of jujutsu. The older schools employ somewhat larger and slower movements to mimic the use of armour in the battlefield. 

Tenjin Shinyo-ryu was developed after the period of civil war in Japan; thus, without armor, the movements emphasized were faster and more strikes were incorporated. The strikes were also primarily aimed at human vital points and meridians, which were exposed due to the lack of armor.  Like most koryu, the Tenjin Shinyo Ryu follows the bujutsu Menkyo ranking system, as opposed to the budo kyu/dan system.

Afterward, Ryoko trained the twins in sword fighting techniques, Musō Jikiden Eishin-ryū.  The techniques of Musō Jikiden Eishin-ryū are broken up into sets based on the principal starting position of the waza and by skill level. The majority of the study is focused on these solo waza; Solo waza use a single long sword. 



Both children under the tutelage of their aunt mastered various techniques from Musō Jikiden Eishin-ryū:
  •  Seiza no bu (Shoden); The word ‘shoden’ can be translated as ‘entry-transmission.’ This set of techniques was derived from Ōmori-ryū, and is still often referred to as “Ōmori-ryū.” It is the first set of techniques taught. Seiza no Bu waza are performed from seiza, a formal kneeling position, with the general exception of Oikaze, which often begins standing.
  • Tatehiza no bu (Chūden); The word chūden (中伝) can be translated as ‘middle-transmission.’ This set was derived from techniques created by Hasegawa Eishin and is still commonly referred to as "Eishin-ryū." It is the second set of techniques taught. Tatehiza no bu waza are performed from tatehiza, a half-seated position, with the exception of Makkō.
  •   Okuiai Iwaza no Bu (Okuden); The word Okuden (奥伝) can be translated as ‘inner transmission,’ or ‘secret transmission.’ The Okuden sets contain advanced-level techniques. Okuiai Iwaza are performed from tatehiza.
  • Okuiai Tachiwaza no Bu (Okuden); Okuiai Tachiwaza are performed from a standing position, with the exception of the three Itamagoi waza, which start from seiza.
  • Bangai no Bu (Okuden); Bangai are extended tachiwaza. These waza are not koryū, but were created by Ōe Masamichialong with the Katate Hayanuki exercise.  Bangai no bu contains the following waza, performed from a standing position.  In addition to variations of Hayanami and Raiden, some lines contain additional Bangai waza.

After both Blair and Chelsea mastered the Solo waza techniques of Musō Jikiden Eishin-ryū, the pair ended up going their separate ways again with their training.  Even though they were born under the same year under the same day and at the same month, there Aetheral Gate was not too similar.  Unlocking their Aetheral Gates they have discovered they can control fire based magic.  

During their training, Blair’s magic was becoming unnatural according to the standards of the Crux Nexus and sooner start to take a new form; lightning.  Blair having the ability to manipulate lightning caused a stir in Ryoko, since no one in the Crux Nexus has ever learned to harness lightning.  More upsetting, is that those who have learned to harness lightning have been Dark Nebula Coalition members.  Still, Ryoko was a woman who always loved turning positives into negatives and decided to give Blair more training to deepen her techniques of Musō Jikiden Eishin-ryū by having to learn Paired Waza (Kumitachi).

Musō Jikiden Eishin-ryū’s paired waza (kumitachi) are often taught only to advanced students after years of study. Some of these sets are rarely seen outside of Japan. Some ryuha have the first set (tachi uchi no kurai) as part of their yudansha curriculum. There is a high incidence of grappling, striking, and disarms in these paired sets. Some waza use both long (ōdachi) and short (kodachi) swords.

Some waza begin with swords drawn; others begin with swords sheathed and employ nukitsuke (drawing) techniques. Typically, these forms are practiced using bokutō; however, it is also practiced at high levels with shinken. Each of these katachi (essence of kata) was created to promote practice of a key principle of Eishin Ryu under controlled yet reasonably realistic conditions:

Tachi Uchi no Kurai (Koryū) and this version of the set contains the following 10 techniques:


1.      出合 Deai
2.      附込 Tsukekomi
3.      請流 Ukenagashi
4.      請込 Ukekomi
5.      月影 Tsukikage
6.      水月刀 Suigetsutō
7.      絶妙剣 Zetsumyōken
8.      独妙剣 Dokumyōken
9.      心明剣 Shinmyōken
10.  打込 Uchikomi



Also, she had her learn Tachi Uchi no Kurai, this version of the set contains the following 7 techniques:


1.      出合 Deai
2.      拳取 Kobushitori
3.      絶妙剣 Zetsumyōken
4.      独妙剣 Dokumyōken
5.      鍔留 Tsubadome
6.      請流 Ukenagashi
7.      真方 Mappō



Blair excelling in full contact sports became very popular amongst the men in her school, but she became a target of envy towards the women.  Being loud and aggressive one of the twins, she usually settles things in a physical manner.  She loves sexually toying and teasing men, leaving most women paranoid and envious.

Her having a tall and muscular body, the women didn’t try to cross her.  Unfortunately, it did not stop her enemies that she regularly faces in battle.  Over the years, she has developed severe invulnerability, taking massive physical and magical damage without suffering major injuries.  From being hit by a speeding 18-wheeler to being body slammed by a 30-foot monster, she always manages to walk away on her own feet.

Custom made by her aunt Ryoko, her dual katanas of equal parts of aluminum and iron, Raijinshou and Denjin, helps her absorb, wield and redirect lightning based attacks both physical and magical.

She loves to fight and loves to brag about fighting.  It was she’s not bragging about fighting, she’s bragging about sex and her latest conquests.  She can be embarrassing to be around at times because there is no filter from her brain to her mouth and usually says the dastardliest things.  But deep down inside she has a good heart.  She wears her heart or sleeve is he truly cares about her friends and her family.

But then again, her greatest strength is her greatest weakness.  Sometimes she can be a way over her head and sometimes can get the best of herself.  Even though she is invulnerable it does have its limits.  If she runs out of Aethereal magic, she can die.  Also, lightning based attacks are pretty much forbidden for reason; they can become unpredictable and even when mastered, can still be unstable.  Which is a volatile mix since Blair can be emotionally unstable as well.  The wonderful thing about that is she has Chelsea to be the calming factor in her life.

Background Story

Orange County is a county in the U.S. state of California. As of the 2010 census, the population was 3,010,232 making it the third-most populous county in California, the sixth-most populous in the United States, and more populous than twenty-one U.S. states. Its county seat is Santa Ana. It is the second most densely populated county in the state, second only to San Francisco County. The county's four largest cities, Anaheim, Santa Ana, Irvine, and Huntington Beach each have populations exceeding 200,000. Several of Orange County's cities are on the Pacific coast, including Huntington Beach, Newport Beach, Laguna Beach, and San Clemente.

Orange County is included in the Los Angeles-Long Beach-Anaheim, CA Metropolitan Statistical Area. Thirty-four incorporated cities are in the county; the newest is Aliso Viejo, which was incorporated in 2001. Anaheim was the first city, incorporated in 1870, when the region was still part of neighboring Los Angeles County. Whereas most population centers in the United States tend to be identified by a major city, there is no defined urban center in Orange County. It is mostly suburban except for some traditionally urban areas at the centers of the older cities of Anaheim, Fullerton, Huntington Beach, Orange, and Santa Ana. There are several edge city-style developments such as Irvine Business Center, Newport Center, and South Coast Metro.

The county is famous for its tourism as the home of attractions like Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm, and several beaches along its more than 40 miles (64 km) of coastline. It is also known for its political conservatism—a 2005 academic study listed three Orange County cities as among America's 25 most conservative, making it one of two counties in the nation containing more than one such city. (Maricopa County, Arizona also has three cities on the list.) It is part of the Tech Coast.

Brought up in a military family Cherie Konana was the youngest of three siblings; two of them were brothers.  She grew up to be a half Chinese-American, half Irish Army brat, who fell in love with the military just like her brothers.  As she matured in age growing up in Orange County, she led a privileged life thanks to her parents’ connections.  Her tastes of high fashion and the celebrity scene caught more of her interest than the military ever did.  Although she wanted to be in the military, her parents felt different.  They didn’t want to lose another child to war, so the military for her was out of the question.  However, it didn’t stop Cherie being involved in the military.  She held proper functions and parties supporting the troops and was very proactive on getting proper care for veterans who served in the military.  Using her social media status, she became extremely popular in the military.

Even though she wasn’t part of the military, she knew her way around guns thanks to her father.  At age 11, she already learned how to shoot rifles, pistols and even shotguns.  However, everything was about to change on Christmas Eve where everyone went hunting for elk in the Rockies.  Numerous police reports about an unidentified animal who was killing and eating live game hunters in the area.  Unfortunately, Cherie and her family ran into such a monster and it attacked them.  With her father, almost being brutally murdered by the unidentified monster, Cherie took her gun and shot the monster right between the eyes, exploding his head clear off the shoulders.  It was a good shot.  A good kill.  But there was one problem.  Her gun was already empty.  She would later find out, that the energy source came from her; Aethereal energy.

Her father did his best to sweep it under the rug, saying it was only a grizzly bear.  But someone else already put the pieces together and made quick work to find this person.  As soon as they got back to orange county, the Aethereal Queen was waiting for them.  Being truly good parents, Cherie’s mother and father were rightfully protective and skeptical; telling the Queen to leave and never come back.  However, they underestimated the tenacity of their only daughter and the Aethereal Queen’s.

Curious, Cherie ran into the Aethereal Queen and they began to talk about what happened in Colorado.  Even though the Aethereal Queen didn’t want to get in between her and her family, what she did want from the Cherie is to hone her skills on her own and then when she is old enough she can join without anyone holding her back.  As a parting gift, the Aethereal Queen gave her a few tomes about Aethereal energy and how to harness it.

It wouldn’t be so hard for her, since she graduated high school one year later and earned a full scholarship to go anywhere around the world and study.  In secret, she contacted the Aethereal Queen to set up a meeting with her.  Graduating high school, she already knew what she wanted to do in life; she wanted to serve and protect like her brothers did in the military.  This will come into fruition since the Crux Nexus have constructed institutions masqueraded as universities for their young members like Cherie to hone and learn their skills.  And it was settled, Cherie Konana will attend to the Crossroads University in New York City.  The same university that many female Crux Nexus members study as well.

During her time at a crossroads University, she learned so much about Aethereal energy and even unlocking one of the four Aethereal Gates; Earth.  Out of the four Aethereal Gates to unlock, Earth is the trickiest since it is so vast scope.  Primarily, she has learned Earth and stone manipulation which comes with the territory unlocking the Aethereal gate.  Having the ability to control earth; sand, stone, rock, lava, dirt, or other minerals.  And even though, she knows how to control such minerals, she can also manipulate metals as well.  She cannot really bend big bars of metal or stuff like that, but she can manipulate and maneuver machines.

With that ability, she could learn Technopathy; the ability to manipulate technology. Manifested as a special form of electrical/telekinetic manipulation, a special form of "morphing" which allows physical interaction with machines, or even a psychic ability that allows for mental interface with computer data.

And also, microwave manipulation; the ability to convert ambient electromagnetic energy into microwaves and manipulate it into various effects such as heat, light, and radiation.

With these two abilities, Technopathy and Microwave manipulation, she can hack into any mainframe and manipulate any kind of light or heavy machinery such as vehicles with a special smart phone that was custom-made to complement her powers.

She also has a bevy of custom-made weapons calibrated to her powers.  Her go to weapons are two Remington R51 semi-automatic pistols. The R51 is a modernized version of the John Pedersen-designed Remington Model 51 pistol chambered in 9×19mm caliber.  The version she carries is made from silver.

The Kel-Tec KSG is a bullpup 12-gauge pump action shotgun that was designed by Kel-Tec. It has two tube magazines which the user of the gun can switch between manually. Each tube holds a total of seven 2.75-inch (70 mm) 12-gauge shotshells or six 3-inch (76 mm) shotshells.

But her all-time favorite gun she uses in a regular basis is The G36; a 5.56×45mm assault rifle, designed in the early 1990s by Heckler & Koch in Germany as a replacement for the heavier 7.62mm G3 battle rifle. This version of the G36 is Aethereal powered and feeds from a 30-round detachable box magazine or 100-round C-Mag drum magazine.

The G36 is a selective-fire 5.56 mm assault rifle, firing from a closed rotary bolt. The G36 has a conventional layout and a modular component design. Common to all variants of the G36 family are: the receiver and buttstock assembly, bolt carrier group with bolt and the return mechanism and guide rod. The receiver contains the barrel, carry handle with integrated sights, trigger group with pistol grip, handguard and magazine socket.

The G36 employs a free-floating barrel (the barrel does not contact the handguard). The barrel is fastened to the receiver with a special nut, which can be removed with a wrench. The barrel is produced using a cold hammer forging process and features a chrome-lined bore with 6 right-hand grooves and a 1 in 178 mm (1:7 in) rifling twist rate. The barrel assembly consists of the gas block, a collar with a bayonet lug that is also used to launch rifle grenades and a slotted flash suppressor.

The weapon can be stripped and re-assembled without tools through a system of cross-pins like that used on earlier HK designs. For cleaning purposes, the G36 dismantles into the following groups: receiver housing, return mechanism, bolt carrier group and trigger group.

The weapon she jokingly uses for “crowd control” is The M134 Minigun, a 7.62×51mm NATO, six-barrel rotary machine gun with a high rate of fire (2,000 to 6,000 rounds per minute) which can also fire at a high-sustained rate.  It features Gatling-style rotating barrels with an external power source, normally an electric motor. The "Mini" in the name is in comparison to larger caliber designs that use a rotary barrel design, such as General Electric's earlier 20-millimeter M61 Vulcan, and "gun" for the use of rifle caliber bullets instead of shells used by an autocannon.

The Minigun is used by several branches of the U.S. military. Versions are designated M134 and XM196 by the United States Army, and GAU-2/A and GAU-17/A by the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Navy.  "Minigun" refers to a specific model of weapon that General Electric originally produced, but the term "minigun" has popularly come to refer to any externally powered rotary-style gun of rifle caliber. The term is sometimes used loosely to refer to guns of similar rates of fire and configuration regardless of power source and caliber.

But when she runs out of weapons or options, she pulls out her trustee knife pistol, GRAD Knife Gun.  In the late 1990s, the Global Research and Development (GRAD) Company designed the world’s first production fixed blade knife that held a multishot firearm inside its grip. GRAD produced four knives, three of which contained working 22LR double-action revolvers. 

The knife in each case was a high-quality 440C heat-treated high carbon stainless steel single edged fixed blade. Inside the grips lay the cylinder for the revolver with a 1.75-inch rifled barrel. In the lower half of the knife handle a spring-loaded trigger lever could be pulled down and when depressed would fire the revolver. The barrel’s muzzle was shrouded by the top half of the grip and fired over the top of the blade through the hilt of the knife. To load and clean the revolver, the grips separated and folded open, allowing access to the concealed gun.

The one she uses is a Hybrid Standard Edition of the knife had black aluminum checkered grip panels and held a 5-shot revolver.  A deluxe 22-karat gold-plated Millennium version of the Standard had a highly hand polished blade and frame.  Unquestionably, Cherie Konana loves her guns…

A girl from Orange County, always love their cars and Cherie is no different.  Even though she is an ultimate fashionista and an Army brat, she is also a gearhead.  Her ultimate car of choice is an armored and Aethereal powered Lamborghini Aventador, a mid-engine sports car produced by the Italian manufacturer Lamborghini.

The Lamborghini Aventador LP 700–4 uses experimental 1300 PS 6.5 litre 60° V12 engine weighing 265 kg.  Its transmission, a single-clutch seven-speed semi-automatic, is built by Graziano Trasmissioni. Despite being single-clutch, gear-shifts are accomplished in 50 milliseconds.  The new, electronically controlled, all-wheel drive system is developed and supplied by the Swedish company Haldex Traction, offering traction and handling capabilities based on their 4th generation technology.

  

“Original Performance” the Lamborghini Aventador:


  •  0–97 km/h (0–60 mph): 2.9 s
  • 400 m (1⁄4 mi): 10.6 s @ 220 km/h (137 mph)
  • Top speed: Official: 354 km/h (220 mph)
  • 97–0 km/h (60–0 mph): 30 m (100 ft)
  • Cornering - 1.05g.


“Aetheral-Engineered Performance” the Lamborghini Aventador:


  • 0–97 km/h (0–60 mph): 1.5 s
  • 400 m (1⁄4 mi): 6.9 s @ 563 km/h (350 mph)
  • Top speed: Official: 822 km/h (510 mph)
  • 97–0 km/h (60–0 mph): 9 m (30 ft)

Only a few or should I say a handful of Crux Nexus members can summon constellation guardians.  Cherie Konana is definitely the exception as she can summon one of the most helpful constellation guardians, Canes Venatici; a small northern constellation and it name is Latin for "hunting dogs", and the constellation is often depicted in illustrations as representing the dogs of Boötes the Herdsman, a neighboring constellation.

Canes Venatici are true the name of hunting dogs.  They travel in packs or in many cases they split up and partner up with other individuals.  They have great tracking and attacking abilities.  Usually, Canes Venatici are used to be in a supportive role, tracking down fugitives and other monsters.  Canes Venatici are consisted of five gun dogs that represents five different breeds:


  • Cor Caroli - the Golden Retriever, a large-sized breed of dog bred as gun dogs.
  • Chara - the English Pointer, a medium to large-sized breed of dog developed in England as a gun dog.
  •  La Superba - the poodle is a group of formal dog breeds, the Standard Poodle, Miniature Poodle and Toy Poodle.  Ranked second most intelligent dog breed just behind the Border Collie, the poodle is skillful in many dog sports and activities, including agility, obedience, tracking to herding, circus performers or assistance dogs.
  • A.M. Ce-Vin - the English Cocker Spaniel, a breed of gun dog. The English Cocker Spaniel is an active, good-natured, sporting dog standing well up at the withers and compactly built.
  • RS Ce-Vin - the English Setter, a medium size breed of dog. It is part of the Setter family, which includes the red Irish Setters, Irish Red and White Setters, and black-and-tan Gordon Setters.


Cherie Konana in her own right is a prodigal child.  Some say if she was born 10 years older, Selena Logan and her would be fierce rivals, even competitors.  Some people call her the next big thing.  Extremely intelligent with an IQ of 186, she has no problem flaunting her intellectual prowess.  

Konana is the top marksman out of the Crux Nexus, possessing superhuman-like precision, and regularly boasting to "never miss" his target. In fact, he has only been known to miss once, when trying to shoot Selena Logan “in practice”. She also once shot an apple off Aethereal Queen's head with her eyes closed and her back turned. In addition to peak accuracy, she is a proficient hand-to-hand combatant and can hold his own against groups of low-level combatants.

Personality wise Cherie Konana is a people person.  She loves being in the know and current.  She literally has the gift of gab and know how to spin the story to get an advantage.  She is lovable and likable to a fault She also takes the time to listen to others and is always giving helpful advice to others whether this fashion advice or personal advice.  She can be a real goofball and a jokester, giving a sense of lightheartedness to the group.

However, that is pretty much the problem with Cherie in general.  She can be a know-it-all and can literally rub it in everyone’s face when they are wrong.  Many of the Crux Nexus members has somewhat of a mean streak to them, but Cherie Konana doesn’t.  It’s not like she’s nice or anything, she decides that acting tough is a waste of time.  Despite of her being proficient in guns, she’s not the best fighter.  In fact, out of the five Crucis Goddesses, she is the weakest fighter on the team.  Of course, Cherie knows some judo from her father, but she would rather squeeze the trigger then to get up close to anyone.

Overall, she is a goodhearted person who wants to do what is right just like her family did.  And even though they do not approve of what she is doing now, they could understand and respect where she is coming from.  She might not be a soldier traditionally, but times have changed and she has become a soldier in her own right.
