Mugi (牟岐) is a character in the Aozora's Adventure series.
Mugi's appearance resembles a teenager with a round, oversized head (being created to be someone of that age) with crisp, spiky blue hair and slanted blue eyes. Around Mugi's eyes is a smooth black surface resembling and eye mask (extending to coloring his eyelids black). Mugi has four signal and and voice receivers in his hair and wears large, black and cyan headphones worn upside down. Suspended from each side the headphones are two black cables with blue-colored headphone jacks. Due to an accident the occurred during his creation, Mugi lacks a mouth on his head; making him completely mute.
Mugi's shirt is a sleeveless black shirt with a very large and saggy collar- with a light blue line running across the bottom perimeter and up the front left side of the shirt. Attached to the shirt and on each hand are three metal sensors with cyan cores, which illuminate when Mugi uses his arm-morphing ability. Mugi wears a pair of basic white pants and a pair of sleek, black boots with a very large collar, light grey straps, and sensors similar to those on Mugi's shirt and hands on both boots.
As an artificial creation that wasn't completed, Mugi is nearly emotionless and can only express a limited range of emotions, primarily anger, disappointment, and shock with his eyes. Mugi is also fairly lazy, spending his free time loafing around and dosing off in Gyesan's house unless Gyesan requires his assistance. Despite these shortcomings, Mugi is loyal to Gyesan and anyone he develops a bond with, fighting alongside them if necessary.
When inside his virtual world, Mugi's personality and communication skills are noticeably improved.
Mugi is a hologram from Korea created by Gyesan with a physical hard body that was "born prematurely" due to Mugi accidentally destroying part of the computer he was being created from while it was still downloading data into his body (due to underestimating his own power). This accident resulted in Mugi being incomplete- He is unable to show or feel certain emotions that don't rely on eyes and/or body language and lacks a mouth to communicate with (though Mugi can sprout speech balloons displaying Korean and Japanese emoticons to give a hint on how he feels). The bulky headset Mugi wears serves to keep his ability to function properly in check- otherwise he will slowly deter into madness, go insane, and crumble apart.
Mugi primarily lives with Gyesan in an apartment located in a busy city, who to this day continues researching into improving Mugi and making him more stable and complete. Gyesan also built a virtual living space for Mugi in his desktop in the form of a large mansion, which Mugi can jack into by touching the monitor with all five fingers on one hand, causing Mugi to break up into glowing white pixels and enter the computer. In this virtual realm, Mugi is incapable of going dysfunctional without his headphones, thus being the only location where it's fully safe to remove them. Mugi can also reach higher levels of strength inside the computer world compared to reality and can even speak complete sentences (despite still having no mouth).
Some time after his creation, Jamji encountered Mugi while he and Gyesan were checking some data on the latter's smartphone in the city park. Jamji grew excited at the idea of Mugi being a living hologram and asked Gyesan how he created Mugi, eventually leading to the two starting up a close friendship and Jamji earning Mugi's trust and backup as a battle partner.
Powers and Abilities
Mugi has the ability to dismantle his arms at will into blue energy and reform them into a variety of exotic firearms that use solid plasma as ammunition (preferring a high-performance machine gun), with Mugi's hand/arm still intact to pull the weapon's trigger once it is fully formed. The weapons formed from Mugi's hands are usually sleek black and navy blue in color, and have futuristic themes with lines of blue plasma running through.
If Mugi requires lots of power for a certain weapon or tires himself out, his head will begin to glow and radiate blue smoke and energy.
Name In Other Languages
- Korean: 무기
- Mugi's body design, hair, and outfit are loosely based on the standardized design of a male blue Inkling from Splatoon (preferably, the one featured in promotional material for the first game), combined with elements of Cyandic from the Hostility Ultimate Force series of flash games and Neku Sakuraba from The World Ends with You.
- Mugi's ability to reshape his arms into various firearms was based on Ren from DRAMAtical Murder and Black★Rock Shooter from the franchise of the same name.
