Lettuce Midorikawa- One of the only two people she's comfortable around and shares a close birthdayAmi Mizuno- One of the only two people she's comfortable around, friends with LettuceSTORYFor Ember Kohaku, social anxiety had always been a problem for her since she was born. Although it allowed her to put more time into studying become one of the highest students, it was still hard for her to make friends and her high academic performance fueled her fear of being shunned in society. The exchange program forced her onto the trip to Wakayama as was accompanying Ibara to pursue Ruby and Ora into the mysterious Mount Ruby Flame volcano, a near-death experience that she has never forgotten.Her powers awoke when she attended a recital for her school; the horde of flying Youma and Chimera Anima attacked the concert hall that resulted in her having a panic attack, transforming her into Fire Amber. The whole bizarre event kept her away from the other students, especially Ruby and Ora. Her fears, however, made her an easy target for intimidation by Kish, who got her to cooperate with his plans. At first, Ibara drove Kish away to stop him from bothering Ember, but it took the other Knights and magical girl characters to make her overcome her social anxiety and join them in fighting evil. While she hasn't overcome her social anxiety, she has new allies and friends to rely on and establish a broader comfort zone.Her magical girl form as Fire Amber is the weakest in direct combat, both in offense and defense. Her strength comes from her agility and evasion- she is far more athletic than she likes to believe- and is the only one with a ranged attack. Her attacks take the form of embers and lightning sparks she can shoot with great accuracy.
