Background/History: Noriko Kobayashi never intended to be an AMP officer. At her father's request she attended business school, intending to follow in his footsteps. Graduating near the top of her class, she quickly found employment with the Shiraishi Corporation. Shortly there after, Noriko found herself dissatisfied with her choice of employment, feeling that her future as a woman in the executive arena was limited at best. Confronting her father with these ideas, Noriko was rebuffed severely for her lack of commitment to her chosen career. The verbal war raged on for hours, with neither Noriko or her father willing to give ground in the argument. Eventually, Noriko was pushed to the breaking point by her father's merciless verbal attacks. Trembling with suppressed rage and anguish, Noriko's latent psychokinetic powers manifested at their full intensity, shattering all the glass in the house in a violent storm of fragments and debris. A long silence followed this display of power, ending with Noriko storming from her parent's home in tears.
For a time, Noriko struggled with the powers she now possessed, trying to come to grips with both her psychokinetic abilities and the disintegrating relationship with her parents. Eventually, Noriko decided upon a radical course of action; she would enlist in the MegaTokyo Police Department. This career choice was deemed unacceptable by her parents, who disowned her at this point, limiting family contact to rare conversations with her brother.
Upon graduating from the MTPD Academy, Noriko was assigned as a corporate liaison officer in the public relations department. Her former corporate experiences allowed her to excel in this field, and Noriko rose quickly the ranks. Eventually, after gaining greater understanding and control of her psychokinetic powers, Noriko transferred to the Attacked Mystification Police, intending yo use her powers to aid in the fight against Entites. Noriko feels that she has found her calling, and continues to improve upon her impeccable service record.
Personality/Motivation: Noriko is a very emotionally detached individual. For her, business comes first, and that is that, end of story. Thus, she comes across as very cold and impersonal to the extent that her departmental nickname is "The Ice Princess." Noriko's sole motivation is to show her father that she can be a success in her chosen field, and that she can make it on her own without his guidance. This desire is doomed to fail however, as her father has effectively denied her existence, and any successes as a police officer will not change this fact. The tenets of Japanese honor and face will not allow for a reconciliation in this matter. Yet, this harsh reality has not deterred Noriko in the slightest; she has immersed herself in her work totally, and has recently been promoted to teh rank of AMP division chief.
Noriko's "business first" attitude has affected her life in many ways. She tends to not show much emotion when on duty, presenting an image of perfect efficiency while working. In keeping with this philosophy, Noriko takes great pains to ensure that her uniform is always properly arrayed, with all accouterments polished, pressed and shined. Noriko's devotion to duty means that her private life is devoid of any outside influences. For example, Noriko has avoided developing a close relationship with anyone. The reason for this is simple: Noriko feels that any form of romantic affair would only interfere with her work, and that will be time enough for such things "later".
Quote: "You really are beginning to annoy me..."
"Assaulting an AMP officer, consorting with an Entity and carrying a concealed weapon... there's no end to your bad habits, is there?"
Powers/Tactics: Noriko is a police officer first and foremost, and her tactics will follow standard police procedure 99% of the time. In most situations Noriko will try to resolve the situation through a combination of persuasion and force of personality. If this method fails, she will then resort to her Aikido training (backed by her telekinetically enhanced strength) or her blaster. And if this isn't enough, Noriko will then use her psychokinetic powers.
When using her powers, Noriko primarily uses her telekinetic abilities, mostly alternating between her telekinesis and her telekinetic shield. If hard-pressed, or faced with high-powered weapons, Noriko will resort to her telekinetic shell or telekinetic wall, although she doesn't like to use this last power due to its detrimental effects to her system. In extreme situations, Noriko will use her RKA power to stop a fight immediately. The Indirect advantage upon this power represents the fact that the rupture effect is formed within a target, thus it bypasses such things as external body armors, and is only really stopped by other psychokinetic powers (such as a force field) or internal defenses, such as subdermal plating, or vitals sheathing.
Noriko also possesses a most unique talent, the ability to suppress another's psychokinetic powers. This power is not absolutely reliable, and tends to suppress a target's powers randomly. It requires a certain degree of concentration to work properly, and if Noriko is distracted while attempting to utilize this power, it can backfire, suppressing her own power instead. This possibility limits its use to situations where Noriko has other AMP officers to back her up.
Noriko's esper powers are physically draining, which is why she tries to avoid using them. Her esper powers grant her a number of interesting talents, including the ability to detect others minds, to communicate directly with those minds, and the ability to generate psychic distortions that serve to mask the mental signatures generated by a specific person's mind. Noriko's most interesting esper power, however, is her ability to see a person's psychic aura, which appears to her eyes as a shimmering mass of colors defining that person's personality and mental nature. Noriko often uses this power to establish a psychic "first impression" of someone, using that image as a basis for how to deal with and react to that person. Note that both Noriko's Danger Sense and Aura Sense are special powers not normally allowed in a Multipower. An exception was made in this case for two reasons: the first is that both powers cost Endurance, the second is that neither powers is a constant power; both must be consciously activated.
Appearance: For all her impressive psychokinetic powers and impassive demeanor, Noriko is surprisingly non-threatening in appearance. She is short, standing only 5'3", and slim, scarcely weighing 105 pounds with a trim figure. Noriko is very pale-skinned, with green eyes and short, blue-black, shoulder length hair. All in all, Noriko is physically quite attractive, but her distant personality offsets this greatly.
When on duty, Noriko wears the standard AMP field uniform. Off duty, Noriko dresses in conservative Western fashions, as well as more traditional dress. At all times, she wears only the barest minimum of makeup, jewelry and other accessories.
