Minami Ayano || Age:20 || Female
Minami is smart. She's always been the "top of the class" archetype, having a very high IQ and being decent at sports as well. Socially, she has never been a big-shot, she can hold a conversation just fine but is perfectly comfortable with silence as well. She's mature for her age and is doing decently for herself, though she isn't particularly interested in what she is currently doing, which is part reason she decided to join high-school friend Satoru Taiyo in his experiments.
College dropout, currently unemployed
Minami comes from a long linage of scholars and researchers in different branches of science. Her father was a physician and her mother was a chemist. Most of her childhood was with her grandparents as her parents were busy with their work, making her grandparents take a big share of the parents-role. Both of them were retired and had plenty of time to spend with her, so she never really felt any need for a lot of other people in her life, a common trait in her family line.
She stayed with her grandparents till she got into the high school she wanted and had to move however. Despite not being that far, it would be too long to take public transit every day and she was feeling ready to live closer to the city. During her years in high school, she was usually at the top of her year, usually from her lack of after-school interest and dedication to schoolwork. She never joined any clubs and focused most of her time on doing well in school. She got in decent contact with Satoru because she found him interesting as a person, something that didn't happen particularly often.
After completing High School, she moved on to College. Mainly due to high pressure from parents she barely knew, she ended up picking up physics as well, but dropped out after less than three months. It wasn't her intention, but after her father had committed suicide for an unknown reason, her mother refused to let her stay as far away from her and forced her out of the course. She stayed with her mother for about three months before she had finally gotten enough and sneaked out of the house at night. There were newspaper reports for weeks about the "Vanished Minami Ayano" which forced her to move commonly and she had no chance at entering college again in fear of being recognized.
She spent the next year and a half writing a book while trying to find out her father's reason for suicide. She has yet to succeed on the latter part, but managed to publish an educational book for elementary school maths about half a year ago, under a pen-name of course. However, with little interest in writing school books for the rest of her life, she successfully managed to get in contact with Satoru again and moved to Akahibara to help him with his research while trying to clear up in her own mess at the same time.
She's an amateur storywriter, decent on acoustic guitar and enjoys various aspects of Otaku culture, mainly video games and TV-shows.
Minami has blue eyes and her hair is dark brown. Her height is rather average, being at 5'3. She's usually seen wearing a pair of jeans or a skirt, along with a black hooded sweatshirt with a button-up shirt under it. Her ears usually have several rings in them, and she occasionally wear a necklace with a small gem hanging in the end.
