Chusokarashi no Manaato, the pinnacle of artistic brilliance.
Over 1503 years ago, the greatest minds in Koosu no Sekai began creation on the most ambitious project to ever exist: The Manaato Project. Out of a desire to obtain complete enlightenment, one representative from each species collaborated together to create a being of supreme intelligence and power that would bring absolute knowledge to the world of Koosu no Sekai. She was also intended to have the ability to create more artistic beings in her image to speed up cultural advancement. Her development lasted many centuries, and 53 years ago the project was finally completed. She was almost everything the team had hoped for.
But throughout her meticulous creation one small detail went unaccounted for: A small prank pulled a few years prior by an unknown being, which effectively corrupted her personality. Manaato was born into the world completely twisted due to the “spark of chaos” planted within her. Immediately after her birth, Manaato killed everyone involved in the project and entered society with two goals: To dominate everything she found artistic, and to destroy everything she didn’t find artistic.
She began publishing her own stunning works of art to obtain a following, and she gained many students such as Takuto and Hypolla that desired to learn from her expertise. Few know about her true goals, but she’s secretly caused vast amounts of destruction and death to accomplish her vision. Her personality is egotistical and brash as she believes no one could even come close to stopping her, especially with her abilities.
Her ability allows her to obtain complete dominion over anything she desires, but with a catch. The more remembered the item in question is, the harder it is for Manaato to usurp control of it. An abandoned painting is very easy to claim ownership over, an entire country is not. But after claiming ownership, Manaato can manipulate the item at will. Manaato can even claim the abilities of others for herself given the time.
Manaato’s actual array of abilities is vast, such as manipulating her own appearance at will and using a variety of art-themed weaponry. Her favorite is her half brush, half paint-roller which she simply calls “The Tool.” Her power is immense, but is she really unstoppable?
