Piro speaks:
what inspired me to create kimiko? well, a lot of factors, really. I can't really tell you the idea the prompted her creation without giving away too much (originally there were no girls in the MT idea) - her personality is a derrivitive of that.
I tend to draw on a lot of different characters, from anime, games and life too. and it wasn't lonliness - if that was the case she wouldn't be so, er, 'flat'. ^^;; nor was in hard liquor. that's largo's department.
Kimiko is really a conglomeration of what i feel would make a cute, attractive, realistic character. as you find out more about her, you'll see for yourself.
