Gami Audiza (Concept Art by www.steevenlabeau.net)
Les magiciens vivent dans un monde dont il est difficile de distinguer les contours. Un monde intérieur que la plupart des gens n'essayent même pas de comprendre, alors que c'est la seule façon d'y accéder. Et une fois coupés de cette partie de nous même, notre ignorance devient leur force.
Le monde de la magie a rencontré le monde de la science vers la fin du 20eme siècle, car certaines personnes ont eu le courage de traverser l'océan d'incompréhension qui sépare les deux disciplines. Comme ce fût le cas de certaines sociétés secrètes pour qui il était impératif de continuer avancer (en avant, toujours en avant). Après tout, si les magiciens disposaient d'autant de ressources que les grandes firmes pharmaceutiques, ils seraient certainement à la pointe de l'innovation.
Magicians live in a world which is difficult to distinguish the outlines. A world that most people don't even bother understand, while it's the only way to access it. And once cut from that part of ourselves, our ignorance becomes their strength.
Magic met science by the end of the 20th century, because some people were brave enough to cross the ocean of incomprehension that separates the two disciplines. As it was the case of some secret societies for whom it was always important to move forward. After all, if magicians had as much resources as major pharmaceutical companies, they would certainly be at the cutting edge of innovation.
Skin color : That tone is really hard to describe, but a more realistic version would look like humanae.tumblr.com/post/103293… or humanae.tumblr.com/post/994973…
Hair : Blond
Eyes : Amber (somewhat green)
Make-up : Very natural style : Orange for the skin, light pink for the lips
Age (approx) : 25 / 28
Height (approx) : Nearly 180cm
She use a proper language most of the time.
If we could describe the sound of her voice, we could say it's very similar to the voice of
. It's a very nice voice to listen that inspires seriousness.

We can assume that Gami was recruited by one of those secret organization about 5 years ago, since she mysteriously abandoned her biotechnology studies at Osaka University at the same time. It's only after this training that she was offered to take part in a cooperation program at the Base. But being already a lifetime member of her secret organization, she may just become an associate member of the Base : She must accept the constraints, but she'll never enjoy all it's benefits.
At that point, the real name of that very influential secret organization remains unknown. However, We do know its members often use the motto "progress and wisdom" and the acronym "ISM": Two concepts ideally suited for those who want to have a global vision. The magicians must always remember that their quest for the absolute is always a delicate balance between the abundance of caution and the excessive arrogance.
Like all people recruited in partnership with other organizations, there's only a few details about her personal trajectory : Or rather, most agents don't have access to them. However, since its members have the rule to surpass their masters after a few decades, we can assume she has a strong creativity, but above all a capacity for hard work (creativity and discipline). And that's what witnessed those who work with her at the "CK8" laboratories (Chemical Kinetics 8), and "Materia Biomedical".
Gami is currently a nano-medic with "undetermined" status for the CK8, as in addition to her research she sometimes deals with patients requiring "unusual but effective" treatment. When it's impossible to use nanomachines that are both fast and precise, she may resort to secret technique that allows her to control some nanomachines by thought, and steer them towards very specific objectives.
The "Materia Biomedical" laboratory plays an important role in the study of hyperaccumulating plants and bacteria that can synthesize new molecules are via phytoextraction (these molecules can then be used for various research projects). Gami's scientific knowledge has led her to create a "new kind of magic" that mixes technology and occult knowledge.
Note : The knowledge that allows her control nanomachines by thought will only be shared with the Base, if it can creates technologies (or nanotechnologies) that magicians are unable to create by themselves : Nanomachines with extraordinary capabilities.
For magicians, any misappropriation of these technologies would be a big issue, because they could be associated with other than the Base already master : Associated with drugs that favor mental manipulation, it would be possible remove any free will and therefore permanently cancel anyone freedom.
WHAT'S MY NAME
One may think that her real name also contains "Gami" because initially it had chosen 矢上 and 八神 (Yagami) as alias. But since it's impossible to have the same alias as another agent Base, Gami invented her first name :
instead of 紙 or 神.
She had no luck either for her first choice of last name "LukyNova" (that seemed to be a very strange reference to the famous Valeria Lukyanova of Odessa). In the end, the name AUDIZA, which may not have any relation to her real name, could be a reference to Odessa.
Gami tries to have the most balanced life possible, because she had known for a long time that it's important to always show restraint... Excessiveness harms everything
Her philosophy is very close to that of Elona : The main difference being that Gami will share her experience more easily, while Elona will only do that with people she feels close.
Her behavior often contrast with the other members of the team, or other Base agents. Most characters often have neutral expressions (almost detached), while Gami doesn't necessarily want to hide her emotions, all the time to everyone.
☆ Trivia :
When she joined the base, she had the opportunity to open the "first esoteric bookshop Base" :
(besides there aren't many conventional bookshops). Currently, most of its books are selected to make people think, even the youngest readers. Books dedicated to "experts" represent less than 5% of the selection. She recently started making interactive Do It Yourself videos, requested by some readers to help them understand some very theoretical works.
On the other hand, this bookshos keep her focused on her real goal without getting noticed : In her realm, she doesn't need to meet other agents Base, who mostly don't trust her or definitively don't believe in magic. But for some paranoid, that desire to isolate from the community is definitely suspect.
What most of these people ignore is that magicians often have serious responsibilities : Because they have to take the right decisions for today but also for tomorrow. They must have a global vision of what's happening at the Base, while getting results in their research. This require time but above all a peaceful environment.
"Ichi-go Ichi-e" (One chance in a lifetime) bookshop helps her hold on to her goal and avoid being distracted. Because it's easy to forget its responsibilities and values, once lost in the maze of the Base.

Glatz Mile (Concept Art by www.steevenlabeau.net)
La principale qualité de Glatz, c'est sa détermination. Une détermination inspirée par des héros modernes comme Bruce Lee, Mohamed Ali, Michael Jackson : Des hommes qui ont voulu repousser leurs limites, parfois au péril de leurs vies. Sa persévérance pourrait le mener très loin, comme c'est le cas pour d'autres enfants de la Base, mais il ne semble pas intéressé par une carrière prestigieuse (depuis quelque temps, il a décidé de lever le pied pour mieux réorganiser sa vie).
L'opportunité de créer le MX SQUAD s'est présentée après une opération que la Base à considère comme un revers (mais pas comme un échec total)... Une équipe qui est en fait un repaire d'agents en disgrâce, qui évitent ainsi le déshonneur de la rétrogradation.
The main quality of Glatz is his determination. A determination inspired by modern heroes like Bruce Lee, Mohamed Ali, Michael Jackson : Men who wanted push their limits, sometimes exposing themselves to great dangers. His perseverance could lead quite far, as it is the case with other children of the Base, but he doesn't seem to be interested in a prestigious career (he recently decided to slow down to better organize his life).
The opportunity to create the MX SQUAD came up after an operation that the Base considers a reversal (but not as a total failure)... A team that is actually a hideout for agents in disgrace, who thereby avoid the dishonor of demotion.
The MX SQUAD includes agents with very different profiles, as Glatz isn't very adamant regarding those that are considered "nonconformist" by the Base. That flexibility is a strength, because apart Ryo and Raya, all team members are autonomous and know exactly what they have to do. But it could become a weakness if the team expands : His teammates understand that he has no desire to be a charismatic leader, but other people might want to be commanded by a more iron-handed leader (a true leader). If one day the question of expanding the MX SQUAD is considered, it wont be at his initiative.
Skin color : #C96d3A and #C7855A (for Ryo, Glatz et Aritz, their skin colors range from humanae.tumblr.com/post/130086… to humanae.tumblr.com/post/674865…)
Hair : Brown
Eyes : Brown
Age (approx) : 25 / 30
Height (approx) : 180cm / 190cm
Relatively casual fashion style, but he knows when to be dress properly.

For now, his role is to maintain the cohesion of his team and manage the tensions that could shatter it (because if one of its member withdraws, the team no longer exists).
Once the "Mountain Watch ReduX" is fully operational, Glatz will be able to concentrate on his core mission : Make the "Police of the Base" more bold and ambitious. The former team (MW, "Mountain Watch") simply followed the clues provided by automated surveillance systems, and was taking less and less initiatives. With the MX, Glatz decided to rely on human intuition.
Base has heavily invested in its automated control procedures, so it's quite normal that the MX is a small team that has few resources. Its role is primarily to do thing that the robots are not yet able, but not to carry out investigations they could do faster and especially more rigorously.
Since he leads the team, Glatz is scared to ignore the important things : An almost impossible quest that requires him to be more creative in the way he operates. Fear can be a powerful engine because it helps to push the limits.
Like any children of the Base, he integrated that every decision always has consequences (whether good or bad), and each error has a price. Each day reminds him that if he is in this situation, it is also because of a series of bad choices.
That attitude is quite paradoxical (but also interesting), because he's never afraid to question his own choices and act pragmatically. But his pragmatic side, he well knows how to use in his new responsibilities, interfere more and more with his freedom of thinking.
For Glatz Mile, the challenge now is not to fall into the traps of a system that will inexorably lead him to renounce to what he believe. Time will tell if in the end the different facets of his personality will be able to coexist.
This is amazing. Well done!
I can say your artworks are awesomely inspiring and if I have time to read them all, I'll certainly put a link from the descriptions of my characters. Or if you don't mind, I can also notify you when the descriptions will be updated, so you can pick the magnets that are best suited for each characters (it could also be a good way for me to have your review)
