Character Name: Ryuko Matoi
Species: Half-human half-clothing
Canon: Kill la Kill
Canon Point: Post-canon
Character Info: Right here on the wiki!
Personality: Ryuko is headstrong. That... is putting it lightly. She's incredibly driven, not quite as prone to violence as she used to be but she's no slouch either, but she really doesn't do the whole “internalizing her feelings” thing. Lots of yelling. Very willing to fight for what – or who – she believes in. And if you get in her way she will do her damnedest to make sure you don't get in her way she has a whole battle theme about how she's not going to lose that!! When she first showed up in canon she literally showed up at a floating... fortress is probably the best word to describe Honnoji Academy – just to challenge the person in charge to a fight because she thought Satsuki might have information on who killed her dad. Not even necessarily that she was the one who killed him, though that was her first guess.
Then Ryuko learned how to Friends instead of going with her whole loner schtick, befriending very-different-from-her Mako and slowly gaining more and more people to fight for. And fight for them she will – when she does make friends, she makes them fast and will fight hard for them, even if they tell her no. Ryuko is really really really stubborn. Talking her out of doing something? Pretty much impossible unless she knows and respects you or you fight her out of it. And Ryuko is very good at fighting.
By the end of the series, though, after surviving a bout of brainwashing and killing her mom in space before falling naked back to Earth (as one does), Ryuko is somewhat calmer. She's grown up some, y'know? That's what it means to make it to graduation. Which is what happens at the end now that her life shows signs of actually becoming peaceful. She has a sister now, and a date coming up, and all in all life is looking up. Ryuko is at peace, for the most part! She's learned to be less phenomenally reckless, how to care for other people without needing to fight them, and made a vow to a dying Senketsu (her... living sailor uniform that gave her strength in battle and was arguably her best friend look don't question it) that she would start growing up and moving on. To let herself move on from the grudges she was stuck for so long carrying within her.
SURE WOULD BE A SHAME IF ALIENS MESSED THAT UP FOR HER BECAUSE THEIR OWN MUSIC SUCKS, HUH?
Genre Preferences: Punk, Rock, and... pop because Ryuko trapped in a bubblegum pop band would be hilarious.
Choice Instrument: Guitar would be cool! Or bass. Or lead vocals to make her life hell.
Rockstar Persona: Ryuko is TUFF. Ryuko wants to FIGHT U. Ryuko... also has an extensive collection of clothing because she has a passion for fashion. But don't tell nobody. Daughter of two very lovely and very fashionable high-class socialites, Ryuko is a LONER and a REBEL who wants to express that through MUSIC. And punching people, just not in ways that might embarrass her label, y'know? Her mother and father are very proud of her. Wherever they are. … whoever they are.
Ideal CR: I'd like bandmates who aren't quite as loud and brash as she is? I'm down for anything, though, don't stress yourselves out too much when sorting her.
Writing Sample: Ten comments here are pre-brainwashing! Also includes her persona, who... is not super different from regular Ryuko. I can also provide a written sample if needed!
