Personality[]

Michiru is a cheerful, friendly, hard-working and supportive stage girl who's always willing to lend a hand to her friends and classmates. Beneath her positive exterior however, Michiru can be harsh and unforgiving; much like Akira Yukishiro, she doesn't look too kindly upon those who fail to meet her expectations. She is determined and refuses to give in when it comes to achieving her goals. Much of Michiru's drive comes from her devotion to help Akira succeed, often taking up a mentorship role around her and the other Edels. She is also highly perceptive and takes pride in collecting useful information on everyone she finds interesting. Her outward cheeriness combined with her serious attitude is sometimes viewed as intimidating.

Background[]

Michiru saw Elysion's Chapter of Kings with Akira around when they were eight- or nine-years-old, which inspired them to train in singing, dancing, and piano in order to perform in Elysion themselves one day.[3]

Relationships[]

Akira Yukishiro[]

Akira and Michiru are childhood friends that aspired to enter Siegfeld together after seeing a performance of Elysion as children. They made a promise to become Edels at Siegfeld someday, with Michiru promising to do anything in her power to help Akira become Frau Platin. Since growing up Michiru still considers Akira her closest friend and confidant, they greatly admire and have a deep trust in each other. In her role as Frau Saphir, Michiru watches over Akira; acting as her primary support and advisor.

Yachiyo Tsuruhime[]

Their relationship in-game has been described as that of a cat and mouse. Michiru has tried cornering Yachiyo at various times about what was inside her suspicious notebook. The one time Yachiyo almost got caught, she only managed to throw Michiru off her scent with an outrageous lie about what was inside.[4]

After the events of Dying King, they keep up this tense little game between them, though it's more about Michiru trying to get Yachiyo to do well rather than some concrete secret like before.[5] Michiru sees in Yachiyo what she saw in Akira "that day".

Shiori Yumeoji[]

Michiru and Shiori are very friendly with eachother, and tend to talk a lot about food. At first, Michiru mostly sees Shiori as Fumi's younger sister, which disgruntles Shiori because she wants to be evaluated on her own merits.[6] Michiru looks out for Shiori, whether it's helping her train[7], giving her acting advice[8], or getting her comfortable with the other Edels[9]. Michiru calls Shiori the Edel with the most potential[10] and admires the genuineness Shiori puts into her acting[11]. She is surprised by how strong Shiori is and sees Shiori as a potential future Frau Saphir.[12]

Liu Mei Fan[]

Mei Fan and Michiru first meet when Mei Fan asks to be appointed as an Edel. Michiru is the one who denies her, believing that Mei Fan doesn't understand the true burdens an Edel must be willing to take on. After seeing how passionate Mei Fan can be, Michiru recognizes how much of an asset Mei Fan could be and agrees to make her an Edel.[13] Michiru feels that Mei Fan doesn't look up to her nearly as much as Mei Fan looks up to Akira.[14] She initially sees Mei Fan as too impulsive, rushing into things without a plan, but she wants to help Mei Fan achive her goals.[15] When Mei Fan wants to help Shiori recover from her cold in Siegfeld General Hospital High-Class Prescription, Michiru is the one to come up with a concrete idea and suggest performing a psychodrama. Over time, they become closer. Michiru helps Mei Fan recognize her own strengths and aspirations as a performer[16], and she encourages Mei Fan to look within herself for answers instead of only looking to Akira.[17] They enjoy being challenged by each other.[18]

Fumi Yumeoji[]

Michiru and Fumi attended Siegfeld together in their first year.[19] When Fumi quit Siegfeld shortly after Akira became Frau Platin in their second year, Michiru confronts her and correctly predicts that Fumi's time as a Stage Girl is not over yet. Michiru claims that the two of them were friends, although Fumi denies this. During rehearsals for Play A, Michiru helps Fumi realize her unresolved history with Shiori and her true motivations for helping Tamao revive the Rinmeikan Performance Department, both of which Fumi had previously been trying to ignore. Michiru thinks Fumi is similar to Akira in terms of skill level and ability to act genuinely on stage, and she says that Fumi has "the qualities of a king." She wanted Fumi to stay at Siegfeld so that Akira would feel continually pushed to improve. Even after their estrangement, Michiru looks forward to what Fumi will do next and still sees her as highly skilled, although she is disappointed with Fumi for trying and failing to act self-sacrificially without understanding the consequences of her actions.[20]

Game[]

Etymology[]

  • Michiru's surname Otori means "male phoenix bird" (鳳).

Trivia[]

  • Her favorite gift is walnuts.
  • The name of her sword, Saphir Bestrafung, literally means "sapphire punishment" in German. Greatswords are normally meant to be wielded with two hands due to their extraordinary weight and length, sometimes extending to be up to 175 cm and weighing up to 8 lbs.
  • She likes martial arts.[21]
  • She's participated in a lot of sports[22], including baton twirling[23].
  • She likes animals, specifically powerful predators.[24]
  • The chess pieces present on Michiru's Rebirth Emblem are pawns and a rook.
    • Pawns are the weakest pieces and have the lowest point value out of all the pieces in the game. However, they have been called the "soul of chess" in a famous quote by François-André Danican Philidor, and their positioning can dramatically affect how a game will go.
    • With the king piece, the rook often takes part in a maneuver called castling, in which the king is moved to the farther ends of the board while the rook is moved closer to the center. As a result, the king is better protected, while the rook is granted a greater range of motion throughout the board.
