“Thunder magician. Actually a thunder & storm controlling beast. Cursed, forced into humanoid form. Devours humans. Grows massively bigger the more souls he devours. Is nameless, humans however call him ‘Risto’.“
Risto is an old sea beast and magician. By devouring human souls he craves to regain the greater power that he once possessed - which was diminished as he got cursed centuries ago. He is a wild spirit, smug and most of the time grouchy and – hungry. Only few souls live to tell the tale of his hidden soft side*.
*(that he is, in fact, a soft romantic old fool)
Toriki is a witch who is able to directly communicate with ghosts and uses this ability in her job as a supernatural detective. Though, instead of simply fighting ghosts & spirits and helping humans to get rid of them she cares for the souls wellbeing and protection.
While generally of calm & stoic nature, she is quite the investigator. Very curious. Asks as many questions as she's spending time thinking, drawing conclusions, tracing tracks. She is a professional in her field, tough and experienced, but not case-hardened. She shows compassion for souls in need and confronts injustice and fights if there's no other option. Despite her seriousness at work one is not unlikely to find her laughing & communicative in her free time.
She does love tea as well as books. Reading along with enjoying a good ol' cup of tea by the open sea describes Toriki's ideal evening.
