I. Personality Traits» Personality:
Kindness: Despite everything, Junko is still a kind person. She hasn't allowed the evils of the world to affect how she treats people. She thinks everyone has the potential to be good, and should be treated as such. She helps people often no matter how outlandish or weird it is. She laughs at jokes no matter how corny or bad they, plays with kids, does favors, etc.
Mercy: Even she wouldn't wish torture or evils upon her worst enemy. She knows what it's like to be battered upon without any thought or mercy her entire life, and so doesn't want anyone to experience what she had. She has all the wishes in the world to fight for people and be friends.
Fear: Though has been toned down to much, much healthier degrees, Junko may experience anxiety in very tense moments. She can have nervous twitches and fears, but she wouldn't be up to the amount she was at previous to meeting Sunshine. She can handle her fears and anxieties much better than she used to, no longer projecting past insecurities into conscious thought.
Perfectionist: Has been toned down drastically, but she's still willing to make everything absolutely top notch when she wishes to do so. She does try to impress anyone who she really cares to impress, often times trying to make everything absolutely perfect for them. Not particularly object order or arrangement, but the event or set up to be impressive.
Dramatic/Weird: She's that one weird person who has odd thoughts like sliced bread is cruel because you're separating the bread from it's loaf... It's mother loaf! She has a lot of strange throwaway thoughts that can make people think she's high or drunk or something, even if she isn't. It's even more apparent if she does get high or drunk... Sometimes for humor she overplays what could be simple event as something weird and amazing, like saying when a person trips it's the 1% of germs that hand sanitizer didn't kill out for revenge.
Easily Amused: Considering she was on the internet a lot to distract herself, she can easily be amused by the simplest of things. Hey even smart and tough people need to have a bit of relief!
Balance: As a representation of the Ego part of one's consciousness, Junko is one to do balance almost to an excess with her two other personalities. Out of the three, she is the only part where all three of them are conscious and can have input in decisions. She tries to confide in both, making sure both are happy and satified with the outcome of her decision. If either is dissatisfied, she feels extreme guilt and tries to right it somehow.

I. Character History» History
From even before she was born, she was not wanted. The second her parents found out her gender, they immediately wanted to abort her. The only thing that saved her was that she was too old to be aborted by a medical professional. Her parents didn't want to put any effort into her so much that instead of her being perfectly healthy and capable of coming out naturally, her mother decided to have a C-section instead, since she didn't want to invest hours into giving birth to a child she didn't care about. So astonishing to them in such a long line of male-born Astillons in their family, a female was born. She was named Junko (Meaning Obedient Child), with their wish they could at least have control of their child.
They decided not to put her up for adoption, because they felt like she was their burden to bear. The first few years of her life were miserable. Her parents never read her books, so she had to learn by herself. She only had one stuffed hand me down worn out bear and a worn hand me down piece of a blanket. Her parents never played with her and most of the time pretended she didn't exist.
She cried and broke things often for attention, but that just got them angry at her. They had enough of her and sent her to preschool at the age of 2. She had quite an awful time getting along with the children, them making fun of her red eyes and freakish strength. She couldn't handle her emotions properly, so she often attacked students when she was upset. The teachers were too scared to correct her, so she was excused from ever entering the property again.
Her parents were outraged that she would be stuck with them until school began, often times physically and emotionally abusing her. They constantly threatened her with smacks or beatings or "even worse". She dreaded the even worse part, so she was always compliant with their wishes.
School was even worse for her. When she began, she was immediately put on a schedule, all to keep her out of the house and away from them til after sunset. At first they were pretty logical, like ballet or karate. But they gradually added more and more to the schedule as she got older. Most of it was physical training of some sort and very few were things she actually like doing.
Things seemed to get worse when her little brother was concieved. Her parents were so very happy they learned they were going to have a boy, but never told Junko until she found a pile of wailing sheets in the vacant room she never had looked at, until discovering it was a full blown baby room, unlike her who only got a bed and was lucky to get a nightstand or lamp. Her self esteem seemed to gradually lower as whenever she was able to see how they treated the little squeaker, they loved him. Far more than her...
Junko began to sink into depression by her preteens, despite having been able to fly through school and skip two or three grades. The feelings kept building and building... Until...[Sensitive Topic Warning; Open At Your Own Risk.]
She continued through school, managing to get into college at the early age of 16. Despite it all, she was very focused on her school work and her physical training, though quite balanced on both so one didn't hinder the other. She began college, being able to be away from her family who reminded her of how little she meant to the world. Things seemed to turn around, until she met her roommate. She was one of the popular girls at the college, and constantly antagonized her from day one, but in a way that wouldn't get her into any altercations or seem cruel to the other students.
She kept Junko up all night, belittled her for being a minor, and so on. More and more students joined into her torment, pulling pranks on her and laughing at her when she did the simplest of mistakes. Junko tried to combat this by walking on eggshells upon eggshells with these people, being extremely cautious of what she did and how she did it. Even if she was careful, they still found ways to pick away at her mind and whittle away her sanity.
One day she had enough, encountering the source of her torment. She stood up for herself when a lot of the students who went after her were present. She voiced how she was sick of the girl attacking her and keeping her up all night for no reason. The girl only began laughing, along with her friends, which took Junko aback. The girl picked into her words, dissecting them and taking them out of context, immediately flipping the script on her; suddenly Junko was the bully and the girl was the victim. This only made everything worse, everyone calling her an awful person.
Rumors spread, which only drove Junko deeper and deeper down the already dark hole she was in. She was hoping for change, for acceptance... But no... She couldn't take it anymore; she couldn't understand how it was legal and acceptable to torture a person to this extent and get no repercussions.[Sensitive Topic; Open At Your Own Risk]
She opened her eyes once more with a frightened gasp. She didn't expect to be capable of conscious thought ever again, though she found strange things about herself; a very long chain protruded from her chest, and no one could see or hear her. She felt a little at peace, except when the school found out she was dead. The whole school carried on normally despite a suicide being recorded on campus, Junko seeing the girl who antagonized her walking around with a group of her friends wearing rope-like ties and their faces painted pale as they acted like idiots to mock her beyond the grave. The school didnt see a tragedy, they saw a burden being cut off and doing a wave of good riddance. Junko soon left the school when monsters with masks and holes in their chests became a problem to her, with them roaming quite close to the school.
Junko wandered the earth for a few months, finding herself across the sea. She was in an ever present deep depression no matter where she went. Soon she decided to take a rest, falling asleep in an alleyway somewhere overseas.
When she woke up, she could not see, and was completely restrained, she panicked a bit, any logical thought of how she was restrained if she was dead was out of the window. She whimpered, feeling intense fear as she heard a voice, very briefly, and then the worst amount of pain she felt in her life, well, physical pain. Her body felt like it was on fire, and she could do nothing but hear her own screams. By the end of it, she felt different, but snapped in a fit. It was almost like she was a different person, blindly attacking anything that was near her.
She soon felt the place change in her blind fury, and soon felt extremely lethargic. Though her eyes were still covered, she slowly walked along the new quiet area, collapsing and falling asleep.

I. Natural Abilities & Skills» Natural Abilities:
Bizarre Strength: Even if she was born with a freakish amount of strength, her constant activities and physical training improved upon it greatly, stacked on top being becoming a full demon. She can lift twice the amount human world record holders can (about a few thousand pounds but not exceeding 15,000 as her limit). Though she can still get hurt or have missteps like any other person lifting something heavy; just because something is light to her doesn't mean it is for a fact light. If she drops it on something it will hurt. Her muscles still rip and hurt if she carries extremely heavy things.
Flexibility and Balance: The girl doesn't have just strength, she has an excellent sense of balance and flexibility. She had a lot of training pertaining to balance and the ability to be flexible such as tumbling and ballet to the point it's second nature. She can stand and walk on her hands with ease, she's difficult to knock over, she can even put her feet behind her head! Anything possible with a professional in any activity pertaining to flexibility is possible for her. Though of course she isn't made completely of liquid so there's only so many positions she can do.
Fast Learner: Quite self explanatory; she can quite easily take in and retain things she learns with sharp detail. She can't remember every single thing at the forefront though, so she often has to do the activity to recall it.
I. Unique Abilities» Unique Abilities:
Reality Manipulation: Something rather new to her, she is capable of altering reality to her wishes, but has many limits and not heavily practiced upon. What consists of this is below:
- Object Manifestation: By thinking about a certain object, Junko can bring it into the physical world. Great detail to her thoughts is crucial to this ability. If she were to think of a horse, one would pop up, yes, but what kind of horse is purely random, it could be a small horse, a big one, even a toy horse, or a rocking horse. She needs to be very specific on what she needs. She can't create objects with any power such as a Zanpakuto for example. Sure she can make what looks to be a Zanpakuto, but it would lack a spirit or the ability to do Shikai or Bankai. She is also unable to make sentient creatures; if she was to attempt to make a person, sure what pops up will look like them, but they can only act or say things according to her memory and thoughts.
- Butterfly Effect: Junko is able to be the catalyst for events,
but as of now she can't make anything huge happen like an earthquake or a famine. Specifically being able to create the catalyst for an event, she can materialize things to have a specific action.
She can't make the event go as intended, or write fate for people.
Say for example she wishes to have Sammy get ill. She can't guarantee that Sammy will be ill, she can only make whatever germ or virus that can make Sammy ill present. Whether Sammy gets ill or not is up to outside factors. Does Sammy have an immunity to the virus? Does Sammy have a strong immune system? Is Sammy able to get to the hospital and get treatment in time? Many factors matter to if the event that is wished to happen actually happens.
Emotion Transformation: Due to Junko's mind having split apart due to her interaction with Sunshine, this ability has a whole new meaning as far as emotions. Her prior forms have been lost, but replaced with three that embody a certain set of emotions; Junko, Juju, and June. All three represent the three states of the human mind, Ego, Id, and Superego respectfully. This doesn't mean that their abilities have melded into one new being, oh no. This has simply changed the meaning and complexity of this ability. Each personality has it's own set of abilities that they had accidentally uncovered while doing a certain set of behaviors.
Here they are below:
Increased Cell Reproduction
This ability is possible through Junko’s ability to add things from her mind into reality. If she touches her hand nearby a wound, (considering if that wound is within a 6 inch radius of where she touches with a hand) and wills it with concentration, she can cause cells to replicate at a much higher rate than normal in order to heal the injury faster. At the cellular level, the cells don’t asexually reproduce by conventional means; they simply replicate the nearest cell and continue until the area no longer has any empty space. If the cells don’t successfully fill the empty space, no matter how far in the process they are, they will simply wither and die, turning into an ash-like substance and fall from the wound, minus any areas that were not created by June. The process also tuckers her out quite quickly at it’s current stage, so it’s difficult for her to heal any serious injuries or limb losses. There’s also a giant risk to this; the development of damaged cells. If she tries to push herself to heal the injury faster, the cells replicate very sloppily. The more she tries to cut down the time at a low level, the more often damaged cells can develop. Damaged cells could potentially be dangerous or fatal to the injured, depending on the area. For example, if she pushed herself to quickly heal a heart when she hasn’t enough experience for the rate she’s healing at, it can lead to the heart being damaged and working irregularly or stop working properly all together. There is a benefit however to counteract this flaw; bettering the cell production. Every ten threads where she successfully heals a wound that takes 3 or more posts to heal, she gains more energy. The more energy she has, the faster the cells are able to copy and reproduce without genetic flaws. Her current rates are as follows:
Energy: Lasts 3 posts
Wounds akin to cuts/punctures/1rst degree burns: 1 post
Wounds akin to gashes/deep stabs/2nd degree burns: 3 posts
Wounds akin to large areas of torn flesh/3rd degree burns: 5 posts
Wounds akin to minor part loss (fingers, toes, eyes, etc.): 6 posts
Wounds akin to major part loss (limbs, organs): 8 posts
Brain Wave Sensing/Emitting
June is able to sense the emotions of creatures capable of feeling emotions, considering her senses are sharp enough to detect brain waves, to be exact, ones that send off emotions, of those within a close proximity (about 10-15 feet) of her. They come off of people like an aura, though isn’t capable of being visible. Knowing exactly how others feel can have her know how to react to them. Though if too many people are feeling a particular emotion, or one is feeling an emotion particularly strongly, it can overwhelm her’s and cause her to deviate towards the other’s emotions. For example, if many people around her are happy, she won’t be able to contain herself and smile and potentially laugh depending on how much she’s feeling at once. In turn, if she feels an emotion strongly enough, she can emit it herself, influencing those around her to feel that particular emotion. It isn’t definite for them to feel different; those with Beginner willpower are most easily affected by it, Adept has a bit of resistance, Advanced has more resistance than Adept, above Master can suffer very little effects from it. Though a huge driving force in it’s effects is consenting to the waves. If someone, no matter what level, actually drops their mental defenses and lets the waves affect them, then they were feel the full force of the waves.
A note to this ability; Anyone affected by the waves, both June and those she distributes the waves to, cannot actually do anything like change memories or read minds. It only makes them shift gears to feel more of a certain emotion; it doesn’t do anything to directly interfere with any critical workings of the mind. Also, she cannot distribute anything like mindlessness or emotionlessness states, considering the type of waves the ability is built on are not present in either concept.
Theta Wave Interaction
June is able to distribute a high amount of Theta waves to those around her, causing those within the range of the brain waves to slowly drift to sleep, dampening their Beta waves in this process so that their brains only distribute Theta waves, thus causing sleep. Though with this process, the Theta waves, along with weaker Delta waves in her own brain causes her to fall asleep along with them. Their consciousnesses get projected into each other, creating one large dream, though June does not add to this dream except for herself, since the Delta waves cancels out any possibility of her subconscious mind of being projected. With this, she can speak to the creator of the dream (or combined dream), mainly to tap into what exactly is bumbling in their mind. For Master and above in Focus, it takes 7 posts for them to fall asleep, Advanced 5 posts, Adept 4 posts, and Beginner 2 posts.
Juju is capable of dropping their mental functions (primarily thought-based ones) and up their physical functions to that of a wild animal. This causes their pupils to slit, their nails to become claws, their muscles to become more pronounced, their teeth to sharpen, and their face becoming much like a dog or bear’s, possessing a slight “snout”. There are two different states they can go into, promoting very different physical and mental responses. They don’t consciously go into these states, happening during teeth-grinding instances, life or death situations, or the mention of the words “Lamb”, “Little”, “Little Lamb”, or singing the nursery rhyme “Mary Had A Little Lamb” due to the trauma they had faced.
Juju cuts off their ability to rationally think, putting them into a sort of state of “insanity”. They can still recall things, even think humanely, but they are consumed by a strong sense of paranoia in their head. They have a few giggle fits, anxiety attacks, asking strange questions, doing strange things (tilting their head, twitching, sudden lashing out, etc.). In this state they can still tell friend from foe, but they can’t tell if friend will do something they wouldn’t expect, like backstabbing, or if foe will suddenly have a change of heart. Thoughts constantly bounce around their head and they are in an extremely excitable state of mind, may it be a positive excitement or a negative one. They may pace a lot or even go on all fours just to correct themselves a minute later. They may self harm accidentally or even hurt people without intending to, but apologize afterwards. Their pupils only appear slightly slitted, and have less of a threatening appearance, but still reminiscent of an animal.
Juju’s mind completely severs from her body, becoming inactive which leads to an unconscious, dreamless state. This state has absolutely no mind, no sanity. It’s only instinct is to eat, whether it be friend or foe. Alive or dead. It growls and paces around like a predator, snarling at it’s prey and walks on only four legs. It sniffs, it’s sense of smell being elevated beyond normal means. This part also removes any mental restrictions Juju would have, allowing them to lift very heavy objects (Past their normal limit, it hits up to 27k lbs). It has absolutely no sense of pain or agony, so even if it gets hurt it won’t feel it. Although, it will physically falter from the injuries if they’re serious, such as severed tendons or large amount of torn flesh. This state of painlessness can be very dangerous if it loses too much blood, if not coming out of this state or getting fatally wounded, could seriously hurt, temporarily cripple, or kill the body. It’s muscles are far more noticeable, veins popping out everywhere on it’s body. It constantly drools, having a more profound snout-like face, along with serrated teeth.
Juju is able to manipulate their blood and their blood alone through the means of willing to protect themselves. Blood quickly secretes from their skin for whatever form Juju wishes for it to be. The problem is that, well, Juju can’t pull out more than 10% of their blood without feeling the urge to faint, so to be effective they’d have to be very versatile with what little amount of blood they have. They can form claws, tentacles, even needles with the blood. It can be a liquid or solid, if they build up the iron content in their blood to the tips of the object they wish to be sharp. They can only work with so little, so they have to be careful not to sporadically lose blood. These claws slice through flesh like butter, and can cut through material as hard as stone with enough effort applied to it, though that’s as far as they can go without breaking.
Y’know those run of the mill Shonen traits with people lifting heavy ass swords and having big horns with no difficulty? Well, this ability basically impales those norms in the gut. Within reason, of course. By asking a question about a person, Junko can make a person’s physical traits or abilities work against them by subconsciously adjusting to the question. It’s a sort of mental trickery she can do without even realizing it; she could be genuinely curious just to see someone plummet due to their wings not being able to support their body, or not being able to move since their tails are so big. This suggestion can rattle in the minds of even the higher ranks of Willpower, but likely wouldn’t stifle their combat or life. The effects are always temporary, only lasting until Junko leaves an area of 30-50 feet from the affected, or if she justifies the “inaccuracy” with reality. Any rank below Advanced will be easily affected by this ability at it’s current level, Advanced taking a little more convincing, and above just to maybe have uneven tipping or slight but mostly unnoticeable difficulty wielding a large weapon.
Please Believe Me!
Junko is able to do another form of suggestion implantation; by saying a particular statement she actually means. If Junko wishes for this person to go along with what her statement is, for example if she was telling someone she was fine, this causes the listener to have to figure out what to do with the statement or in some cases, question, or it will stick in their mind until they give in or completely eradicate it from their mind. The best time to do this ability is when it’s least expected, and it honestly just seems like a normal statement, except it causes the user to think on it and have to review their memories of her to figure out whether to erase it or do what she said. She can’t command people to do huge things that go against their morals or anything; it’s in no way absolute mind control or brainwashing. It’s simply suggesting, and if asked or said correctly can lead to different outcomes.
