Overview: Aiko’s a very nice, happy girl. She does have the potential to be very devious, though. Despite her nice exterior, she is not above using her body or other underhanded techniques to get information or access to places. She’s not afraid to get into a scrap. Hell, she wears a potentially lethal weapon as a belt. She also gets REALLY into her work; she can’t focus on much of anything else when pursuing a story, save in case of emergency, and she will beat the hell out of anyone who gets in her way and refuses to budge.
Despite this, she’s a very nice person. She hates it when people are jealous of her for her body, but she’s not willing to give up her greatest reporting asset, so she’ll try to equalize; if someone is jealous of her, she’ll try to find something in them for her to be jealous of.

Henshin Device: Sengoku Driver and the Acorn Lockseed
Henshin Sequence: She puts the Driver on and clicks the Acorn Lockseed open. It announces, “DONGURI!” and a circular zipper portal opens above her head, a huge acorn floating down. She announces, “Henshin!” and puts the Lockseed on the Driver, closing it on. The Driver announces “LOCK ON!” and she moves the knife so it “cuts” the Lockseed open, causing the acorn to drop onto her head and create her Pre-Arms form. It announces “Donguri Arms! Never Give Up!”, then it unfolds down and forms her Acorn Arms.
- Form Name: Donguri Arms
Image/ Description: Here
Motif: Acorn, Viking
Color Scheme: Brown, Silver, Black
Transformation: See above
Fighting Style: She uses a very power-oriented style, focusing on strong blows with the Donkachi, since she can handle attacks
Weapons: The Donkachi, a one-handed hammer.
Abilities: She has minor electrical abilities, allowing her to use her hands like a Taser of sorts and shock people and objects through contact. She can also throw the Donkachi, using a magnetic effect to call it back to her hand.
Finisher(s): Spin Striker- She triggers the knife, and the belt announces “DONGURI SQUASH!” She holds the Donkachi out, and begins spinning wildly, bouncing around the immediate area before smashing into her opponent and destroying them.
- Her belt is actually a surujin, which she uses for self-defensive purposes
- Her notebook and camera, which she keeps in her messenger bag
Aiko was very young when Yggdrasil moved into Zawame. Her mother, one of the foremost investigative reporters in the city, was instantly curious about some of the things that happened behind the scenes at Yggdrasil and began looking into it. Watching her mother slave over it made Aiko want to be like her mother, but her father was having none of it. He’d rather obviously wanted a son, a male heir to pass on his family martial art to. So, as opposed to actually having one, he made one. He trained Aiko in her ancestral family style, Aiko learning rather quickly due to her young age.
Things further complicated when Aiko bloomed a bit early, and became rather well-endowed. Her father made her bind them down, but as she grew, so did they. Her father eventually realized the futility of it and stopped making her do it. Aiko learned just as quickly, taking up writing for the school newspaper as her extracurricular. She worked long and hard, graduating high school third in her class by a hairsbreadth and going on to university, where she got a job with the Zawame local newspaper. She graduated with an English degree and went to work full-time for them, becoming a investigative reporter just like her mother.
She used both her body and her combat skill to use, becoming a legend in the newsmedia community of Zawame in no time at all. Her ability to obtain information rivaled some of the most legendary hackers of the time, but she didn’t use a computer. She was eventually promoted to as much of a team lead as the investigative reporting division had available to them, and she began investigating Yggdrasil and the Lockseeds. Her reporting also led her to make friends with Furuhara. She later stumbled upon the Donguri Lockseed by accident, and Furuhara gave her a Driver to use it with. She doesn't know how Furuhara got a Driver, but she's not certain she wants to.
