Codename: 02 - the Key Holder of the 2nd Gate
Key: Lollipop Necklace
Weapon: Giant Hammer
Ability: Super Strength, Invincibility, Weapon Modification
In an abandoned town, 02 is searching for "the greatest treasure". Like the last Golden Ticket of Charlie's Chocolate Factory, 02 believes that the greatest treasure is hidden in a random candy wrap. In this endless journey, 02 spends most of her time finding dropped golden coins and use them to purchase random candy from vending machines. Still, she cannot find one. 02 will give the Key of the 2nd Gate whenever she finds her greatest treasure. She believes that the greatest treasure can bring this city back. It will be lively and flourish.
History of the Character:
02 is based on the sign of Taurus and the 2nd House placement - the house of materials and values. So, 02 represents material flourish and the journey to fill one's material needs. I used to design 02 as plant-based character, and intentionally created 02 based on Poison Ivy from Batman. I love the combination of red-orange and green. I changed my mind when I realised that "plant" may not well represent 02's stability and intimidating strength of Taurus. As the earth sign, I think 'gemstone' can well represent this aspect of Taurus - beautiful but unbeatable. Since then, 02 is designed as a red haired girl with renaissance ideal body shape to represent material abundance and comfort. I don't want to make her physical intimidating, but as a warm and gentle one to hide her real ability.
I also hesitate whether I should give her a rabbit mask or a wild boar mask, since both animals are used to represent flourish. I find rabbit fits her personality better. I use 'candy' as another theme for 02, because I think sugar looks like gemstone we can eat. It's sweet, hard and beautiful which fit quite well with the ideas behind 02.
02 uses the giant hammer as her main weapon. It's fatal and effective. 02 can manipulate gemstone by forming crystal wall to protect herself or to attack her enemies. She can also cover her hammer with crystal which also increases lethality of the weapon. 02 has super strength which gives her a great benefit in one-on-one battle in which she never loses. But, as a slow mover, she has disadvantages against a large group of enemies or faster ones.
