– Miko's Stage Introduction
Miko Chibana (
She is currently referred to as Mibana (みばな), but back on Diamondstar, many people/students/citizens called her Shorty (ショーティー) due to her height.
Miko has her maya/baby blue hair is left down in a bob and two thick strands framing her face. Directly above her purple-violet eyes are her unevenly cut bangs. She has a pretty normal skin complexion.
Her casual, aside 00 uniforms and training wear, is a purple 'v' neck, raglan sleeved shirt. Atop her shirt is a set of denim-material short overalls. She pairs the look with white sneakers. During the colder months, she wears jean overalls instead of the short ones, white knee-length socks and a white down-jacket. In short, everything added on, excluding her shirt and overalls, are in white.
She is no where near average, both height and weight wise, She should be 157 cm (5'2") tall and 51 kg (113 lbs) in weight. She is however, only 143 cm (4'8") tall and 31 kg (69 lbs) in weight. Her height also makes her the shortest member in 00. Miko has stated that she is now growing rather slowly in terms of height and is probably not going to be much taller by the time she stops growing at around 18. She is currently the same height (and weight) as a 10-11 year-old.
Seemingly a bubbly girl on the outside, and to a certain extent she is, but has a history of anger management issues. She's what one may call "don't judge a book by it's cover". Most of this is because she got what she wanted when she was a young girl, her granny pitying that her parents did not care much about her. In simple terms, she was spoiled as a kid and could not really take it when things did not go her way.
However, after her grandmother's passing, she did grow to become one that would understand. Although it took her quite a few years before she accepts the way it is, resulting in her anger issues. Her anger issues did lessen over the years before finally ending at her age of 13. There are still issues, such as mentioning her dead grandmother in a negative way, which still can trigger her but other than that she can be considered quite calm than previously.
Miko does consider herself a jolly person in general, and is rather outgoing. She calls this human-kind's afterglow.
Pre-00 - Life on Diamondstar
Currently, she seems to be all smiles and a happy child. This is, thankfully per say, after her terrible temper/attitude problems in her past. She grew up as a single child, with her parents not caring about her. Thus she went under the care of her grandmother who took pity in her. As such, she was spoiled rotten by her grandmother. After her grandmother's passing, when Miko was roughly 8, she did not get everything she wanted. Causing her anger issues to come in. After 3 years of her parent's neglect and frequent visits to the therapists and counsellors, her father dropped her off at a clinic thrice a week, she had finally showed signs of improvement. It was also then that she was kept at home for a few weeks before finally being able to go to school again. Due to being constantly teased about her height, plus the nickname she had on Diamondstar, she grew to ignore the fact of how short she was. Now, most fans think of Miko being short as cute in a sense, thus she has easily adjusted with how short she actually is.
This was the time-frame from the point her grandmother died to the point where she "semi-recovered" from her anger management issues. She stopped going to a public school in SC0119, and her father managed to get her a home tutor. Miko was home-schooled for a year before her tutor quit due to her frequent tantrums. Her mother then decided to have her husband send Miko to a therapist. She started with once a week, before having it changed to twice a week. This went on for yet another year before her mother had enough. Her mother left for a business trip and never returned. Miko's father then sent her for counselling once a week and the therapist visits continued wit three times a week. When her mother did not return after a long time, her father realised that she had most likely left because of Miko. Thus, after the whole thing was over, when Miko was 12, he had completely stopped showing Miko any affection. Which Miko could/should have cared more, but after realising what might have been the root cause, she just let it be. In between her counselling and therapist sessions, Miko was home schooled so that after everything was over, she could go back to school.
AKB0048 - Encountering & Joining 00
She had finished her sessions at the end of SC0123, thus she started public school once more in SC0124. It was also then she had realised how short she was. She was originally "bullied" for being short until it became evident she did not care about them, her school mates, teasing her about it. Thus, that came to an end as well.
It was sometime between the two years that she heard of the girl group AKB0048 for the first time. Seemingly hearing it from some of her classmates that they were to hold a guerrilla live in Diamondstar. In the end, those classmates of hers disappeared, they most likely were taken by the country guardsmen. And soon enough, when the live itself came, Miko caught a glimpse of it before the DGTO came into action.
The news for the 154th Generation reached Miko's ears once more and she decided it'll be best if she tried out for the group and maybe give her father less of a burden. Thus she fled from her home for the tryouts. In the end, her ship was intercepted and could not make it to the auditions in time. She was sent home, but her father was obviously furious with her. She was under "house arrest" for the time being excluding school hours.
Once more, during her wait for the news of a new audition, another one came earlier than expected. The management team had found out there was a problem the last time around and some girls were still held captive, thus they opened the 154.5th Generation auditions.
Miko signed up for the auditions yet again, and this time managed to get pass the Diamondstar authorities. Succeeding in her fleeting from home, she then sent a message to her father through phone which read the words, "Thank you and sorry. ily." Her father did not respond, though Miko knew he had read it.
She had passed the auditions and was accepted into 00. Her first event as a 00 member was the 572nd Jyanken Taikai, which she entered along side another 154.5th Generation member, Aiwara Kurumi. She then ended up placing 5th and was one of the front girls.

Chibana Miko is a remade character. To view who/what the previous character was(like), please check the page's history.
Should you come across a link that should display the words "Nishimura Karin" or "Iwata Karen the 15th" do note that the latter two names was the former, original names of Miko. Karin had succeeded and became Karen the 15th.
Thank you for understanding. Should you wonder why I had changed Karin/Karen 15th to Miko, just take it that I wanted to keep my character in the 154.5th Generation without ridding of her in entirety, i.e. graduating her.
