Kiyomi Inoue — Side Gif 2.gif

Curiosity might have killed the cat, but sheer willpower brought it back. ("Necromancy is illegal, so that'll have to do.") Without a doubt, it's mind power in Kiyomi's case. Her spleen is often outshone by her over-consuming acuity. The crispness of her turned in assignments almost perfectly convey how oiled the gears in her head are, although the professors weren't too fond of how she gave them a run for their Galleons. In spite of this, she has never been one to showcase her scholarly credentials and it only ever pops up like an unwelcome jack-in-the-box when the past is brought up. By that time, Kiyomi tends to be long gone. After all, there's no point dwelling on inflexible things and she's only smart because she tries.

Given how her parents were both athletes, it was no surprise when Kiyomi apparently began to learn from their footsteps. Overshadowing her academic attitude was her genetic and fierce athleticism. Self discipline never became a problem for her again once she evoked the dormant interest. Even though she isn't particularly obvious about it, the unyielding girl is passionately and singlemindedly driven. It was once said that human determination surpasses time and space - Kiyomi is a prime example. PDA isn't welcome in her workspace, and godforbid you try to change her mind about her many issues with society. Procrastinators should find a cure inside the lowkey taskmaster that Kiyomi is, except she might not be the ideal kind. Did you read the door sign? It says "TOMFOOLERY WILL BE INCARCERATED."

While a pseudo-ice nymph at mind, the same can't be truly said for Kiyomi's heart. There's a five year old playing with her mood switch and frankly it isn't a brilliant idea to hamstring them. ("That's... child abuse, too.") As temperamental as she can be, she prefers to have no emotions dumped in her cup of tea. Naivety does elicit some kind of light amusement from her, and on occasion, one of her mythical smiles. However, she exerts more effort in trying to instruct them in the ways of Let's Be A Little More Realistic Here, Shall We?™ and there is no thwarting her on that platform. If you're a neophyte to ad libbing, then you might as well stick your head in the ground and stay there; she considers planning a good idea, but is a good bed friend of impetuosity.

Unintentionally, Kiyomi is slotted in the "have to hate them, cannot lose them" category. She despises being a victim of cold reading and is saddled with the unfortunate position of being insecure about her individuality. There resides a streak of competitiveness inside of her, but she refuses to be a sore loser especially in bed. Blessed with the oh so useful ability of telling people they're disappointments of the human race, she has few inhibitions on slamming people down a peg or two whenever that seems to be the most viable option. It's more than a tad hard imagining her as easygoing, but in all truth, she's civil and likable towards people who don't sing the dumb Kiyomi song aka just Haru. If you're terrific or just lucky, maybe you'll even catch one of her jokes.


Inoue Kiyomi was one of those kids who were last ditch attempts to keep marriages intact. Inoue Hana and Minoru were Japanese immigrants in the US who spent a good portion of their time complaining about how much their marriage counselor sucked. The attempt ultimately failed given how both had a mind-boggling infidelity habit ("They were hypocrites. It was almost funny to watch."), but she was born anyway (because abortion is looked down upon, especially if it's for no reason) and the DNA test confirmed she was legitimate. When she started crawling, she was already aware of her parents' irreparable relationship. The yelling matches were kind of hard to ignore. Seeing her older brother bawl his eyes out was also hard to ignore.

Most of Kiyomi's childhood can be summed up by "well, fair enough." Her parents split before she was even seven. Her mom got custody of her, and her dad got custody of her brother. They were allowed to visit each other, but those grew scarcer as the years dwindled by. Fast forward to several years later, her brother isn't a brother and they're a sibling because it turned out they were agender. Kiyomi was nonplussed about the whole situation whilst her dad was flipping out. ("He was all about self acceptance, so he freaked out when he knew nothing about gender identities. I'm glad I never got his anxiety. Poor Dad.") Rewind. Kiyomi stayed in the US with her mother up until she was twelve. Her first act of magic was when she gave a local racist bully a concussion by increasing the impact of her thrown math textbook. ("I can't bother to remember his face or name, but damn, I still remember how good that felt.") She attended Muggle school, destroyed notions that her generation was effed, and got her Ilvermorny invitation shortly after she turned eleven. Contrary to popular belief, she wasn't in Horned Serpent. She was picked by Wampus and Horned Serpent, but she chose Wampus because f*** people's expectations. Since she and her mother moved back to Japan, she was forced to transfer to Mahoutokoro.

Mahoutokoro wasn't much of a difference to Kiyomi, though Ilvermorny was always going to have a place in her memories. ("I still have my Ilvermorny uniform. You never heard that.") She came across her current teammates, of course, but let's not get into that lest the paps get a hold of it. That would be a mess. Kiyomi has to talk about her teammates in almost every interview, too, so no she isn't enthusiastic about talking about what they were like back in school. She was into Quidditch (naturally) and alternated between Keeper, Seeker, and on occasions, Chaser for all six years. Then there was Rin Sasaki. She needed to physically restrain herself from chopping his cocky face into itty bitty pieces because holy sh!t that kid is full of it. Haru Korusawa warmed up to her around third year ("He was surprisingly sane, unlike most of my classmates.") and to this day, she still likes him best out of all the people she knows ("Well, there's Kaede, but we don't see each other often.") Hana was killed in a plane crash a week before Kiyomi's 17th birthday, which was both convenient and a tragic pivotal point. Defying the rumors that had immediately entered circulation, the levelheaded girl did not lose her fervor for Quidditch in the slightest. Graduation passed by faster than the weekend. ("I had high marks, if you even care.") The US tried to scout her to no avail. It was their fault, to be honest. They sent the wrong person to get her: "your money is so far up your white a** that when you speak, dollar bills come out." To be fair, the person she was speaking to was a piece of work. And that was the day she piqued the interest of the media. She eventually took an offer from one of the Japanese teams, and recently was picked to be Keeper for the national team. No, she isn't going to tell you how she feels about that.

Name: Relation: Feelings:
Hana Inoue† Mother Kiyomi was relatively close to her mother, and though she may not show it, she took Hana's death hard.
Minoru Inoue Father Since they had never gotten a stable foundation for their relationship, Daichi and Kiyomi act like in-laws rather than father and daughter. Their one connection is Kaede; both have come to the silent agreement that the agender is one of their brightest suns.
Kaede Inoue Brother Sibling It wouldn't be a stretch to say that Kiyomi and Kaede are nothing alike. The sole similarity is their smile — Kaede's comes more often, but in those rare moments, they definitely look like they're related. They're on good terms, but the amount of times they have gotten on each other's nerves has carved distance between them.

Name: Relation: Feelings:
Rin Sasaki Teammate / Lowkey crush Kiyomi's relationship with Rin is sinuously complicated and is a spiderweb waiting to bestow the gift of confusion on those who cross it. They're friends, yes, have a long history of friendship, yes, but alloromantic humans will be alloromantic humans and there is no changing it. It doesn't help that Rin is too f-cking attractive for his own good, God.
Haru Korusawa Teammate / Even-more-lowkey crush Haru was Kiyomi's first friend in Mahoutokoro and certainly the one who made the best impression on her. She strictly and privately considers him her best friend even though she's been lowkey in like with him for the past four years. Despite acknowledging her feelings, Kiyomi hasn't bothered to express them while sober. The fact that Rin is currently the subject of Haru's affections isn't changing her mind. At this point, she's confident that he hasn't thought and can't think that way about her and has mostly come to terms with it.

Name: Relation: Feelings:
Kaori Itō Teammate
Nobu Hayashi Teammate Nobu is a soft smol bab who needs protection from Rin, and not the condom kind. He and Kaori are cute together, because Kiyomi's just trash for the sweet, scared boy and confident, hands-on girl ship.
Ruby Maizono Teammate Ruby can handle herself, and it's duly noted. She might be a mega-mouth, but Kiyomi's not too ruffled by that. It's a great source of entertainment seeing Ruby decimate Rin's flirting attempts.
Mai Tamako Teammate THE MAKNAE MUST BE PROTECTED AT ALLLLL COSTS. No, seriously, Kiyomi has quite possibly grown another eye just to keep it on Mai.
