Background/History: Makoto Mizuhara is the central character of the El-Hazard series, as well as the main hero. He starts his adventures in Roshtaria by activating the pillar holding the sleeping Ifurita in the basement of Shinonome High School. When she awakes, Ifurita informs Makoto she's been waiting for him for 10,000 years, and promptly sends him to El-Hazard with instructions to say "hello" to her when he gets there.
Once in this new world, Makoto quickly meets Masamichi Fujisawa, one of his teachers, and together, the two rescue Princess Rune Venus from an invading force of Bugrom. Returning with Rune Venus to Roshtaria, Makoto is told he looks exactly like Princess Fatora, Rune Venus's sister. As she is missing, and morale must be maintained, Makoto is asked to impersonate Fatora for a time. Shocked at the idea, he refuses.
After a night in a prison cell, Makoto changes his mind, and agrees to help Rune Venus. After being dressed as Fatora, Makoto must attend various affairs of state, at which point he agrees to help remove the shield that keeps the Eye of God from being activated. This agreement starts him on a quest to save Roshtaria from Jinnai's Bugrom army and to find the Demon Goddess Ifurita before Jinnai does. He also hopes to return home when it's all over... if he survives.
Personality/Motivation: Simply put, Makoto is a nice guy. He tries to be nice to everyone, and doesn't like to see anyone hurt, or hurt anyone himself. He even tries to reason with Jinnai, even while the latter is trying to kill him. However, Makoto isn't stupid, and can (and will) fight if the situation calls for it.
Although he agrees to assist Rune Venus by dressing as Princess Fatora, he's not happy about it, and chants "I'm a man" once the first day of the masquerade is done. Discovering Alielle in his bed doesn't help matters. However, Makoto has deep reserves of courage, and continues on through thick and thin, facing all obstacles as best he can without surrendering.
Makoto's personality also puts him in the middle of an unusual love triangle. Nanami has a crush on him, but refuses to really acknowledge it. Shayla-Shayla falls in love with Makoto after he rescues her from Ifurita, but is unable to tell Makoto. Makoto falls for Ifurita almost the moment he first sees her, and can think of no one else after the fight on the Forbidden Island. While Nanami and Shayla-Shayla compete with each other to win Makoto's attentions, he ignores them and pines after Ifurita constantly.
Quote: "No way! I'm not going to dress in women's clothing!"
Powers/Tactics: Makoto has the ability to activate an ancient relic of Roshtaria and El-Hazard by touching it. The artifact will spring to life in his hands, working as long as he maintains contact. Naturally, the usefulness of any artifact he picks up depends on what the artifact is, and how complete it is. One object simply made noise and flashed lights, another (a robot) actually started to walk around on its own.
Makoto's Variable Power Pool is used to simulate whatever powers a device has. In some cases, the GM may want to define his Power Pool as some form of TK which moves the object in question. If the relic has an END Reserve, Makoto's power may serve as an Aid and fill the Reserve. Of course, the VPP can also be used to simply simulate the powers the relic posses, useful in the case of a weapon, for example. In Ifurita's case, Makoto was able to control her to some extent, and eventually turn off her control override circuits, rendering her a free person.
Aside from his special talent, Makoto is also quite smart, reasonably athletic, and an artist of some skill.
Appearance: Makoto is of average height for a boy his age, meaning he stands a bit over 5'6". He has thin build, short black hair, dark brown eyes, and is devastatingly handsome. He normally wears his school uniform (blue trousers, blue blazer, white dress shirt, red tie), unless he is disguised as Princess Fatora, in which case he has on royal robes, make-up, and a long wig. Naturally, he rather despises this costume.
Designer's Notes: This write-up is derived from the El-Hazard resource book from Guardian's Of Order. The characteristic and powers were adapted from the resource book and then further modified by the author.
Makoto's Power Ancient Relic ability is meant to simulate his ability to make ancient relics of El-Hazard work in some way, shape, or form. The Active Points of his Variable Power Pool are there only as a rough guide. Game Masters may wish to alter this number if it proves to be too high or too low.
