SIGNS OF ZODIACS : PISCES
Aoi Fukasaku (深作葵 Fukasaku Aoi?) is the friend of Ibara Naruse and Taeko Nomura. She is also the junior of Naruse. She is one of the Coppelion Medic Unit. She has another personality named Izanami Jyugotenshi.She's a first year highschool student.
Aoi Fukasaku has short cadet blue hair and steel blue eyes. She is a slim and cheerful girl.
Aoi wears her school uniform which consists of a white blouse, a red striped bow, an orange cardigan, a plaid skirt, black knee-length socks, and brown shoes. She carries her gym bag everywhere.
Aoi Fukasaku's personality has many strong traits of a child's or to express it in other words she is moe. She is an innocent kind girl and if everything goes well she is very cheery and gets excited easily. But she tends to get whiny very fast. On their way to and during their stay in the old capital, she complained all the time how tired she was and that she couldn't walk anymore. She wished to be driven even after Ibara explained to her that there wasn't a ridable vehicle left in the old capital.
If any danger occurs she gets scared and upset very easily and her usual reaction would be to call continuously for help most often her senior Ibara. During their stay in the desolated capital she requested several times to go back home, but because of their still on-going mission her wish wasn't granted. Because of her childlike character she sometimes becomes careless and thus causes trouble for other people.
She usually speaks of herself in third-person and calls herself "young" and "beautiful".
She loves to share. She had offered her rice ball (onigiri), her favorite food, to Naruse. She is environmentally sensitive and doesn't like war, trouble or disaster.
But this personality may actually be only hiding her real one.
She is actually powerful she holds a very powerful power capable of her floating, absorbing energy (as seen when she absorbed Kanon's electric attack), yet after these events, she fell unconscious and not even remembered a single detail of what she have done.
She likes to escape into her "fantasy world" whenever she encounters a problem back in her schooldays, which is why she likes reading manga and watching anime.
Aoi once got depressed due to the fact that Ibara almost died rescuing Aoi. She also showed some parts of depression later in the story when she received a drug so that Izanami will stay mobile. Aoi is also displayed to have low confidence, shown when she declined that fact that she CAN produce her powers.
Although Aoi was shown to be slowing her teammates down, Aoi cares so much about the Medic Unit that she is willing to sacrifice herself so that Ibara and the other members of the Medic Unit may rescue survivors faster (The japanese government wanted to do a trade-off. If Ibara is to give Aoi to the government, she'll be given an aircraft, Aoi wanted to do this trade so that she will not slow Ibara down, but Ibara declined this exchange)
Ibara and Aoi are very close. Ibara considered Aoi as her own sister. Ibara always protects Aoi. When Aoi is restless, Ibara tries to make Aoi calm down. Same as Aoi, make Ibara calm down.
Aoi and Taeko are close friends. They are closer than Aoi is with Ibara. They often talk together. They are classmates.
The Ozu Sister'sEdit
During her days at school, she is often bullied and chased by the twins even going as far as taking her onigiri and making her strip then run around school just to get her lunch. Because of this, she is traumatized to the point of fainting after Kanon and Shion are mentioned (manga). In her days at school. Although Kanon is now in the same team as Aoi, the bully retained her savage personality. Kanon once intentionally project a beam of electricity to Aoi JUST so she can awaken and attack Mana.Shion Ozu
Aoi is often bullied by her, Shion will hold Aoi at bay while Kanon grabs her lunch and told her to run around naked if she wants to get her lunch back. In the anime (Episode 10) Shion is surprised when Aoi challenged her into battle, and even more surprised when Aoi disappears to dodge Shion's punch and then reappears while floating in the air.
Aoi cares for him as a person that has helped her. To the point that when No-sense was hit by Shion, she stands against Shion for him and fights her. Aoi looks very like and love No-sense.
Another personality of Aoi. Izanami was created by Aoi unconciously since she doesn't even have any ideas about her abilities back then when she was still bullied by the Ozu sisters. Aoi used to escape to her 'fantasy world' whenever she encounters any problem, ended up making Izanami from an anime (this character was a heroine who fought against evil, Aoi wanted to be like her). Izanami can freely control Aoi's power, even overpowering her.
Initially when they met, Aoi seems to always went blanked-minded whenever she looks towards Mana. It was mentioned that they "resonate" with one another due to similiar abilities and powers. Later, she was trained by her on how to control and use her powers effectively. Since they have to succeed in just one night, Mana taught Aoi how to use three techniques: "Flare", "Levitation" and "Psychokinesis". Mana told Aoi the trick in pulling out and releasing her power energies were to think about "the person you want to protect", and the person Aoi thought was Ibara - about how she was always protected by Ibara back then since their schooldays and this time she will be protecting her instead. She was trained by Mana at the Yoyogi National Stadium.
It is revealed that Ibuse and Aoi seemingly have a close relationship as seen by the way they address each other, with Aoi adding "cchi" at the end of his name. It is a sign of close friendship and Ibuse is shown to accept it. He also lectures Aoi and reassures her that she and the others will be safe as he and the rest of the 3rd Division are on their way to save her.
Abilities and PowersEditShe never wields any weapons up to this point of the story.
In the anime (Episode 10) she disappears away to dodge Shion's punch and then reappears while floating in the air. After this she landed on a swan boat not knowing what she had done, and quickly panicking, fearing that she might fall into the water.She has to be in her "awakened" (覚醒) state and will be unconciously using her powers. During the time when she is "awakened" she doesn't remember anything but appears to still be doing as what Ibara said and helps her at that moment. Her powers are similiar and is the same type of Izanami's and Mana's. Although not knowing how to use and control it at first, she was taught and trained by Mana in a single night before rescuing Shion in the next morning. With her powers, she can fly, glide and create powerful shockwaves just like the two mentioned. She can also stop
incoming firearm bullets with just one hand. She is later taught and trained by Mana to gain control and use her powers and is able to do so without the need to be in her usual "awakened" state, but she still has a shorter span of time using her powers (as she doesn't have much stamina to begin with, so she is easily tired and exhausted after using her abilities). Her powers are more powerful than Mana's easily overwhelming her, but less destructive than Izanami's. She can destroy an aircraft with just one hand.
The basic techniques that Mana taught her is "Flare", "Levitation", and "Psychokinesis".
Aoi can also produce a very powerful forcefield around her and others. This field of energy has the power to block projectiles and attacks and even absorb their energies. This shield of vigor can even block and drain Kanon's electrical shot and absorb intensified fires as if it was nothing. When Aoi uses her powers, physical aspects around her defies gravity and is seen floating gently, this is because her power influences and reacts to them.
Her powers and abilities are related to the Dark Matter.
Her production code was C-21. Many attempts were done to make a perfect Coppelion in the way that the scientists want.
During her schooldays, she was bullied by the Ozu sisters, Kanon and Shion. They would do whatever they like with her because Aoi can't fight back at all. They would use her to kill their boredom to the extent of even stealing her lunch then asks her to run around the school nude if she wants to get it back. She was about to do it when Ibara came to help her. This was one of the events that made Aoi really look up to Ibara and like her.

- (To Ibara) "I want to do something. Anything that can make this world...even the tiniest bit brighter."
- (To Ibara) "You're the one who brought us all here! Without you..we would've all given up ages ago!
This sad world...It makes people lose sight of their reason for living. I'm sure that thought..has crossed the minds of all of the survivors. They saw no future. They wondered if it might be better just to die. I've thought that too!
Everything seems like it's about to fall apart...But you know, Ibara-senpai...We all.. We all found the courage to live through your bright smile.
Your smile, Ibara-senpai...That's how powerful it is!"
