Persistent and optimist she believes she is suited to practice medicine despite her rude and self-centered personality. With a strong sense of responsibility, Nozomi never leaves anything half done and does whatever it takes to accomplish and get what she wants or desires. Doesn't care who destroys or hurts in her way as long as she is happy. The only person she cares about is her mother with whom she is caring and affectionate.
Nozomi often gets in trouble due her bluntly honesty big mouth and her flirty and cocky personality. Smart (ass) and elitist, she tends to judge people by their appearances or intellectual level, but hates when people does it to her. Quick-tempered, Nozomi is ready to pull a fight on whoever pushes down all her buttons, although she needs to restrain herself at work and in class.
Daughter of a business man and a housewife who used to be a nurse, Nozomi had a normal and happy childhood until at the age of seven. Around that time her father ran away leaving behind him numerous affairs and several debts. She never knew anymore about him and started living alone with her mother who got back to work to support her. Nozomi loves her mother dearly and despite all the hardships, she never felt alone and is grateful for all the efforts her mother had done for her.
Since her mother couldn't afford a better house in the city center, they both lived in the city outskirts on a dangerous neighborhood at night. Neither of them lived a luxurious life, and most of the time they struggled to pay bills, but they overcame those times together as a strong family. When Nozomi was able to work she starter helping her mother with the payments doing small part time jobs. The difficult circumstances they lived in helped Nozomi to acquire a tough and rude behavior.
At school kids used to mock her because her house low income, the absence of her father and her worn out clothes. At the beginning, as a kid, Nozomi felt bad about it believing herself much more less than the rest of her classmates with better things than her. In the naïvety of a kid, Nozomi talked about the issue with her mother, who with broken heart gave her valuable advice and support. At the end she toughened up and fought back, earning the respect of her classmates and finally making some friends.
Years passed and with the help of her grandparents she was able to go to high school. There, with her straight forward and easy going personality Nozomi was quick making some friends in her class and excel with test marks, it was around that time when she decided (with the advice of some teachers) that she could study medicine.
During her junior high years, Nozomi felt in love with her math teacher and somehow they began dating. At first she idolized him for how smart and mature he was, feeling that standing next to him she achieved an equal level in both aspects, but after a year he announced in the school he was going to get married with his fiancé. That event left Nozomi heartbroken for a long time. Despite the love confessions Nozomi got from some guys, she always refused them for various reasons, but mostly because she didn't want to experience a similar situation or just wanted to focus on her studies.
Facing some misogynistic comments about her choice to be alone (often related to her sexuality) or her body, they started to assure Nozomi that men just seek one thing; plus the men her mother began dating after her father departure confirmed it. Once more that men couldn't be trusted and began her revenge on them using the guys she dated for her own profit.
At the age of 16 she started doing some enjo kosai. Growing disgusted by men it was a hard choice for her but soon got used to it, thinking that issues like sex or romantic relationships where only for dreamy fools. Once she got old enough, Nozomi enrolled in a hostess club (upon the disapproval of her mother) to earn more money for her upcoming college fees and bills. There she started working as a waitress and with time began her work as an actual hostess, meeting the three men who later on would pay anything she wanted.
Savoring the pleasant taste of dominance over what she despised the most, Nozomi succeeded on applying for college being accepted in Kamenoko's medicine degree and got enough money to pay of it and provide her mother with a luxury life that Nozomi believed her mother deserved.
