Background/History: Nanami is Katsuhiko Jinnai's younger sister and another student at Shinonome High School. She’s very much involved with school activities, and seems to be mostly concerned with ways to make money. For example, she sells Fujisawa a boxed dinner after school, explaining that it’s her main part-time job, and is also paid by the Broadcast Club to investigate her brother's illegal activities.
Dragged to Roshtaria after Ifurita opens the gate for Matoko, Nanami ends up dumped in a desert far from everyone else. She manages to get a job as a waitress at an oasis city, and eventually starts her own business—selling boxed lunches to the priestesses at their hot spring getaway. There, she meets Matoko and Fujisawa and joins them for their further adventures in Roshtaria.
Personality/Motivation: Generally, Nanami acts like an adult, with a mature attitude about things. However, she can still descend into a far more childish temperament of snide remarks and insults. Her primary concern seems to be money, although she isn't greedy about it. This manifest more as a desire to work, and she apparently holds a number of part-time jobs at her high school.
Although she won't admit it, Nanami has a strong crush on Matoko, which leads her to butt heads with Shayla-Shayla (almost to the point of blows). Nanami also has to deal with the unwanted attentions of Alielle, although unlike Shayla-Shayla, Nanami is more willing to tolerate Alielle's constant attempts at affection.
Quote: "In every world, life is hard."
"I know only the money is going to get me out of this place."
Powers/Tactics: Aside from a head for business, Nanami has no real powers, with the exception of her Roshtaria-granted ability to see through illusions created by the Phantom Tribe. This special sight allows her to see Phantom Tribe illusions for what they really are, a highly useful talent.
Appearance: Nanami is about 5'5" tall, with a slim build. She short, reddish-brown hair, large brown eyes, and is very attractive. While adventuring in Roshtaria, Nanami wears white polo shirt over a black tank top, khaki shorts, and brown loafers.
Designer's Notes: This write-up is derived from the El-Hazard resource book from Guardians of Order. The characteristics and powers were adapted from the resource book and then further modified by the author.
With regards to Nanami's Roshtaria-granted power to see through illusions, in at least one case these illusions acted almost like Mental Illusions and not Images. She was immune to that as well, and might have an enormous amount of Mental Defense (and/or Mental Damage Reduction) to only counteract Mental Illusions of the Phantom Tribe (a -1 to -2 limitation).
