Estate Description:
Satonaka Michi has not been given dominion over some lofty 'ideal' of integrity, nor over things and people that fit with that ideal. The Estate with which she is charged is one of acting with integrity, of shouting "I'm right. This is right!" to the world and putting it to the test regardless of the pressures to do otherwise, of that instant exaltation when self-doubt, fear, and weakness shrivel and flee before the fires of one's beliefs and, for good or ill, one becomes pure.

Estate Properties:
…is never easy (1)
…is awesome (and awful) to behold (1)
…demands that the world bend or break before it, for it cannot do (1)
…refines, perfects, and purifies, even when it shouldn't (1)
…cannot abide failure (1)
…does not believe in or acknowledge weakness or strength (1)
…wants to infect you(1)

Unblemished Guise

Michi is no extraordinary beauty. She is not even especially cute. Refreshingly plain, if a bit slim, might be a generous way to describe her, and she is ecstatic that such a description is possible. That, in itself, is an accomplishment she owes to joining the ranks of the Nobilis.

While the syndicated magical girls and main characters in Persona 3 and 4 always made it look easy, keeping your appearance up to snuff isn't even remotely possible when you have to spread your days between school, chasing monsters/mystical gewgaws, clubs, homework, and a few spare hours here and there to remind your family that you still live with them so they don't rent your room out to a boarder like they threatened to do that one time. The ten kilo bags under your eyes alone ruin whatever look you're going for, and insomniac chic just won't catch on without miraculous intervention.

So Michi is plain, has shoulder length chestnut hair she wears loose that she's worked pretty hard not to have hacked off or fried by both standard care and life and death conflicts (the effort shows), dark eyes that finally aren't painful to look at and aren't perpetually drifting closed, and is just tall enough that she no longer gets mistaken for a middle school student (almost ever). She carries herself with an air of certainty, like she knows exactly what she's doing and where she's going. The last is nothing new, but the effect is helped dramatically by not tripping on one's own feet or drifting off to sleep.


Satonaka Michi is a magical girl. She has been there, and she has, in fact, done that. "There" is in some unspeakable psycho-reactive nightmare realm, ancient and forgotten lands that could never have existed, and School Festivals. "That" is collecting a number of mystical allies, fighting the forces of nastiness, and standing up her dates to go fight apocalyptic horrors threatening the future of mankind and happiness itself - one of which turned out to have been her date for the evening.

That had mostly ended midway through her first year of high school. It's amazing how much one's grades can improve when one needn't be saving the world at all hours! Even if playing catch-up in school is every bit as exhausting in its own right.

It could never last, of course. EnNoblement wasn't exactly seamless for her, but it was sort of old hat. Awesome powers? Check. Scary villains? Yup. Elaborate costumes? A given. New and ridiculously exotic allies? Seems so! She's a bit jaded; she's been doing something like this since she was in grade school. She does appreciate that the new scale (and type) of power allows her to cheat, and use it to facilitate having a real life for a change, as opposed to merely impeding it.

Life Path
Satonaka Michi has the keys of Chamomile and Star of Bethlehem (mystery revealed pre-game at HG insistence).

Michi is in love with something, that something being struggle and the way it boils people down to a singular purpose.

Michi's Estate belongs to the light side of human experience, and is something you live. "The truth of the self is awesome" goes to The Dream, and "No compromise for the uncompromising" goes to The Cost.

Michi's life was extraordinary. She has been "in the know" (if a little wrong) about the Border Mythic since she was eleven years old, and fighting to preserve the world all the while.

Through that life, she has found True Love in the person of Nakamura Yuu, a senior at her current high school, and probably the Sovereign Power of Coincidence, as well as left a Legacy of people aided by her antics (and sometimes not) and other magical girls she's worked with, if only briefly. Unbeknownst to Michi, all of this has also drawn the attention and interest of an Excrucian Deceiver, Phasael mery-Harumaph.

Her fascination with struggle and love for people pushing to the limits (and beyond) of their potential makes Satonaka Michi a Power of the Dark, although she doesn't often go to the meetings or picnics.

The Lovely Heart-Mending Bow appears in the Ordinary World to merely be a long, and unusually perfect bright red ribbon. In the Border Mythic, it is a massive bow made of that same red ribbon, and that is (and can only be) strung with all the threads of fate that bind its wielder to others. It has the magical power to unite things that are meant to be together, and re-unite things that were separated. Obviously this is accomplished by shooting the separate(d) things. (This is now Surolam's, has been tainted deeply by Meon, and acts as the bindings for the current Power of Broken Hearts, Kokoro and Shinzou)

Satonaka Michi's Heart appears to be a length of ribbon that has been stained in the colours of body and blood, wrapped around a heart that it does not, in fact, contain. It is a miraculous anchor with the core theme of 'making anew', and its only ever use by Michi was in order to restore some portion of Creation after it had been erased. (This is now Surolam's, has been tainted deeply by Ananda, Lord Entropy and Meon, has been broken in two, and is the current Power of Broken Hearts, Kokoro and Shinzou)
