She’s a girl with a very strange body; with an overabundance of nerve endings, her skin’s extremely sensitive. So much so, in fact, that she faints from even a small wound. But she heals from all manner of injuries—from tiny to horrible—within seconds, and her body rejects all illnesses, poisons, and disease. It can also acclimate completely to any environmental temperature, and Nesuko’s comfortable naked in a blizzard, or wearing a parka in the desert.
From an old, hermetic witch, young Nesuko learned to use her strange sensitivity and channel it through matter—including her garments and particles in the air. This gives Nesuko a keen awareness of her surroundings, allowing her to dodge just about any attack, and almost invariably predict her enemy’s movements.
And she often accumulates enemies, being a paladin whose job it is to help people and to kill villains, which tends to be more complicated than it sounds. The life’s made her somewhat psychopathic, which has both advantages and disadvantages.
She was born in a young town called Neishini’houj, on the planet Naeh’beng. Her house was at the edge of a beautiful green forest and she and her sister, Shiu’Zeng, walked across green fields each morning on their way to the planet’s only school.
Nesuko mostly lived only with her mother, Eirao, and sister, as the man she grew up believing to be her biological father—Salumo T’Kreth—was an intergalactic mercenary, and rarely at home. Shiu’Zeng eventually ran away from home, changed her name to Toubanua, and made a living off-world as an evil sorceress.
When Nesuko was fourteen, a Zai’Pi fragrance vessel crashed on Naeh’beng, polluting the air and bringing death to all inhabitants but Nesuko, due to her odd physiology. A couple years later, after a variety of strange episodes, Nesuko ended up as a paladin with her own space ship, called the Raithuras.
