|Nori's ideal appearance is... cute. His face is slim and his hair is a (very obviously dyed) light gray color and very, very poofy and curly to almost comical degrees - and you do NOT want to see him on a humid day. It comes down to the base of his neck and covers his head except for his face His skin tone is somewhere in the middle of 'oh god are you a vampire' and 'I play WoW' pale, and his eyes are a light gray color. His build is decently muscular - as is what happens when your EM Being trains you to throw down with people - but he obviously doesn't hit the gym. He has some small semblance of muscle sometimes, but it really just equates to making him skinny.|
He has a method to deciding his outfits, and it is almost always a pair of jeans, a t-shirt and a jacket, hoodie or blazer over it. Even in the hottest of temperatures - even if he hates it, he has an image to hold up. He is not opposed to rolling up the sleeves if it's way too hot.
Nori has a good public face that he can keep up. He's decently nice and pretty good at demanding attention. He's smart enough not to come off as a complete moron, and can keep a conversation going. He's not exceptionally charismatic, though, and can easily fall into the pitfalls of awkward silence when he doesn't know how to respond to something. One would imagine that being famous on WaveTube would make him less socially inept, but, in his eyes, there's a world of difference between talking to a camera and talking to actual people. He doesn't have really good friends or Brothers to begin with as a result, and finds it difficult to make them.
Behind closed doors, though, Nori is infinitely more bitchy and sassy. The victims of his sass tend to be people he dislikes, and he likes to make jokes at their expense. He also has very little tolerance for bullshit and will drown out people who get onto him about things he doesn't see as a problem. Around friends, however, he instead relies on lighthearted teasing instead of actually trying to make people feel bad, but he has stepped over that line before.
Nori has a passion for battle that tends to drown out most other, more coherent and sensible thoughts. He enjoys the thrill of taking out enemies, and tends to get... grumpy when things don't go his way or when dealing with 'difficult' enemies - AKA, enemies that he can't just punch a few times to make them go away.
Family is a bit of a sore topic for Nori - he definitely didn't want to go to college, but he's afraid to face his parents after not going - even if he's plenty wealthy. He feels guilty for lying to them.
The largest factor in Nori's life, from a very young age, were his overbearing parents. They weren't particularly rich and famous - quite the opposite, actually, but they tended to restrict access to their precious Nori from other people and as a result, Nori grew up mostly isolated, really focused on schoolwork. During that time, he was really uptight and focused, but that changed when he got a Hunter VG, and, by extension, had access to the internet.
It was there that he eventually learned to let loose and have a good time, and he would eventually open up his own WaveTube account as a starry-eyed kid looking for fame. Things only really picked up for him, however, when Luciel happened to appear on his Hunter VG. Having not been able to get a Wizard before due to expense purposes, Nori was ecstatic, although he wouldn't figure out until later that Luciel had Wave Change capabilities.
From there, things changed for Nori ever-so-slightly. Luciel put him through a bit of a workout routine in his Wave Form that ensured he could fight well, and also ensured that he could make money on the side, fighting viruses. He couldn't try to help his parents with any money-related issues, though - after all, he had to grow up to be a respectable worker and not some gritty, virus-fighting WaveTube degenerate on the internet.
At around 18, though, his good looks and virus fighting videos managed to amass him a decent following - enough to make a living off of. It was certainly nice, but that created the issue of moving out - there was no way he was going to college when he was already making more than enough. As such, instead of going to colllege like he was intended to do, he bailed and used the money he had saved up to buy his own place.
Now, Nori spends his time focusing on doing stuff in the Wave World for his fan base and trying not to think about his parents.
|Luciel's appearance is based on a calico cat - he wears multi-colored orange, black and white 'armor' that somewhat resembles a cat's fur, and he's small enough to perch himself on Nori's shoulder. There are breaks in this 'armor' where his joints are, and gives him free range of movement. The orange energy field you typically see in Wizards is visible beneath where these joints are.|
Luciel is something a drill instructor to Nori. From whipping Nori into shape and basically serving as a secretary for his online presence, Luciel provides a lot of support, even if he bitches the entire time about it. He takes personal health seriously to a ridiculous degree, actually getting pretty steamed when Nori even eats something traditionally 'unhealthy.' He likes sleep and has no real sense of personal space, laying around wherever and on whomever he likes.
Luciel doesn't really trust authority figures because of some irrational fear that revealing himself would lead to him being recaptured, even when such a thing isn't a real possibility - he travelled halfway across the world, and there's little chance someone would recognize a missing Wizard from that far away, and it isn't like he was in high demand. As a result, he will encourage Nori to do some pretty questionable shit if it involves not having to interact with authorities. Nori may or may not listen to him, depending on how desperate he is.
Luciel was created as a personal training Wizard, being part of some brand of fitness that revolved around the Wave World, because of course some company would try to capitalize on that. The idea was pretty simple - market the Wizards as an opportunity to Wave Change and get fit at the same time. Brilliant! The initial set was created, and sold. They didn't take off as a result of being astronomically expensive due to the Wave Changing capabilities, however, and before long, the entire line crashed. No one really knew what to do with the Wizards left over, and they were planned to be scrapped.
Luciel wasn't exactly thrilled about that, and caught wind of it before it was too late out of the pure luck of being rented out at the time. Once that was revealed, he effectively bolted halfway across the planet, deserting his current owner in the process. Halfway across the planet, he found some dumb kid trying to record some Wavecraft footage for his channel, and, deciding he was good enough, crashed into his apartment.
|When the two of them merge, Nori's bright gray-ish hair becomes a sunny orange color, and a one-way visor appears over his eyes. His outfit switches to a skin-tight suit over his body, with a white X over his upper body. His pants are a bit baggier. They're purely black, and he has black armored shoes to go with it. Over his fists and forearms, boxing tape appears - not for any practical purpose and purely for aesthetics, Nori himself has noted, given that his fists wouldn't really get damaged in the Wave World.|
