Ask questions if you want to, please.
This is Katsu's profile and story. I'll have her behavior, looks, etc. - you know, like it's a wiki page or something. Enjoy.
Quick Note: I put as much love and care as I could into making this bio for Katsu. I've accepted the fact that she is only an OC (hardly even that much, if you think about it) and nothing more than that, but she'll always have a special place in my heart. I only ask that you take the time to look through this and comprehend the story that I've threaded together. Katsu means nothing to the majority, but to you, I hope she means more.

Not much, really...I just sat down and edited a Rin model I had on MMD and Katsu came into existence. I was actually writing some fanfiction, and I was thinking about a VOCALOID to kind of represent me...then I found a name generator and went to Google Translate and created what you see before you XD
Katsu's name, actually, isn't that original. "Katsu" came from a name generator, and "Waru" came from Google Translate (go me <.<). "Warui" means "bad" in Japanese (I based "Waru" from it). The reason that it's like this is because of Katsu's beginnings as someone intended for evil. The link to Katsu's origin story is in the description.
Katsu was created by Zatsune Miku, intended to help bring down the VOCALOID and take over the world. However, Katsu's strength was easily met and beaten during her first mission with Zatsune, and Yowane Haku alerted everyone of their presence (she was an alarm, essentially). During their escape, they were being fired at. Then, Indiana Jones style, their exit was closing. Zatsune managed to slide out - however, Katsu was unfortunate enough to get shot in the leg by Kamui Gakupo (or Gackpo). Katsu insisted that Zatsune leave her, and then Katsu was interrogated...
Gakupo had assistance dragging Katsu around by Megurine Luka, and she also helped with the interrogation. They quickly found out that Katsu was a clone of a popular VOCALOID named Kagamine Rin. Zatsune's secret intention with that design was in hopes that the VOCALOID would be hesitant to harm her, but that quickly faded.
Gakupo ended up bringing Luka, Teto, and Katsu back to the lab where Katsu was cloned to find clues to convince Katsu that Zatsune was using her. Katsu, however, was stubborn, and refused to believe that Zatsune was evil and tricking her. Katsu was manipulated since "birth" to believe that the VOCALOID were evil, and they would try to turn her against Zatsune. Katsu had put all her trust in her, so she was willing to be put through many things by Zatsune...
They eventually stumbled across one room that Luka denied Katsu access to. Whatever it was had mortified Luka, so Katsu obviously had to see it. She said she was ready to go, but when they least expected it, Katsu dashed back to see what it was. Inside that room were all of the other failed attempts of Zatsune creating a clone. To put it simply, there were many other Katsu clones in that room, but they were all brutally slaughtered. As Katsu recalled all the pain she felt as she died countless times, she remembered Zatsune's wicked face every time. Katsu quickly spiraled into panic, screaming and panicking. Luka, however, was there to comfort her. Luka was the only one that had truly taken pity on Katsu from the beginning, and that's why Katsu sees Luka as a motherly figure. Rin does the same with Haku.
Katsu was brought back to the VOCALOID base, and then transformed from her original looks (black and red) into what she looks like now. Rin took interest in Katsu mainly for the fact that they looked alike, but depending which timeline you go by (yuri or naw), Katsu will either share that same interest and MORE, or just simply share the same interest.
Since Katsu was cloned, she obviously has issues regarding her existence. She often feels like she isn't her own person, and she's not original. Like Haku and other VOCALOID, Katsu has no real voice. This also creates problems within Katsu. Rin, however, is always there to help her through, whether they're friends or lovers.
Here is the link for the entire story: waru-katsu-chan.deviantart.com…
Katsu often mentions in my fanfictions (unpublished ones) that her love interest is "undisclosed." Katsu, like me, doesn't like people fan-girling over her, so she keeps her love life to herself.
...HOWEVER. Depending which universe you go by, it's either "undisclosed," or it's Rin Kagamine (or chu know, however you wanna say it). I keep two separate timelines for that.
Best friends with her, mainly because Katsu is almost an exact clone of her. In my Katsu X Rin timeline, they spend a LOT of time with each other, hardly ever leaving each others' sides.
Luka acts as Katsu's guardian (like I depict Haku being Rin's guardian). Luka is a little strict, but Katsu mostly doesn't cause her any trouble. Katsu feels like she owes it to Luka to listen to her, despite the tough love between them. In the Katsu X Rin timeline, however, when Katsu tells Luka that she loves Rin, Luka is very much against the idea. We all know that didn't stop Katsu, though.
There are two sides to this. One side: Katsu and Haku get along well and Haku looks after her when Luka can't. On the other side, in my Katsu X Rin timeline, Haku is very much open to the idea of Katsu and Rin being a couple. Haku manages to convince Luka that this isn't a bad thing - and not necessarily the first time it's happened, either. You know, because of all the female Vocaloids...
Katsu, in the beginning, had mixed feelings about Alice. She knew Alice was a threat, and didn't take kindly to another one of Zatsune's creations being let in. She had a reason for this as well: Zatsune's creations mingling with one another can't be good...It would only spark trouble. And, in a way, she was right. But, whether she'll admit it or not, Alice is her sister. Alice was made from Zatsune, and since Katsu was also made from Zatsune, that would make them (in a way) "related." Zatsune, if you wish, is the horribly evil mother of two.
Zatsune was not Katsu's friend. Zatsune abused, tortured, and harassed Katsu, but she also created her. She's like an evil mother, to Katsu. Katsu would probably never say that Zatsune is anything like family, but in reality, that's exactly what she is. It took an extremely long time for Katsu to finally forgive Zatsune, but that was only because Zatsune acknowledged her wrong-doings and begged for forgiveness. It took a lot of heart, but Katsu, in the end, hugged Zatsune and forgave her, finally accepting her as a "mother."
Katsu is also friends with a lot of the other VOCALOID (Gumi, IA, Miku, etc.), but these are the important relationships that play huge roles in Katsu's life.
Katsu may be Rin's clone, but that doesn't mean they're EXACTLY alike. Katsu is a bit more of a daredevil than Rin, and sometimes, Katsu even drags Rin into trouble on accident. However, Katsu will stay by her friends through thick and thin, but if things get hopeless, that will also drain Katsu's hope. She depends on Rin to show her the bright side of things.
Katsu occasionally dwells on her past, wondering if it were best if she just vanished entirely from VOCALOID. Then, she remembers who brought her into the VOCALOID family, and all of the friends she's made who have stuck with her.
(This next part isn't important)
Katsu is heavily based off of MY personality, so many of the things she says I would probably say in real life. While I'm not a daredevil like she is, I do dwell on my past and try to stay hopeful until things are absolutely horrid. I usually depend on friends to keep me looking to the future hopefully, when in reality, it's something I would rather not think about at all.
Katsu never truly gets past her issues, but she learns to cope with them thanks to people like Rin and Luka. She has learned how to cope with it, and to her, that's all that matters. Everyone who knows her tend not to bring it up into a conversation, but when Katsu and Luka are alone, Luka often attempts to help Katsu with some of them. Katsu usually pushes those efforts away, however, and insists on dealing with them herself. Rin is the only known person who can truly break through Katsu's tough exterior and help sort out her problems.
The only times Katsu ever really gets really emotional are when she's put into a few situations. For instance, Katsu will easily begin to cry if Rin gets seriously hurt because of her. Friend or girlfriend, Katsu treasures Rin dearly, and can't bear the thought of having Rin get hurt because of something she did.
Another scenario in which Katsu will begin to break down is when Rin is helping her talk out her problems. Katsu gets very emotional about her past in general, which is why she tends to steer clear of it, if she can. Rin is one of the few people who have actually seen Katsu cry (Luka and Haku also included in that circle). People like Miku and other dear friends of Katsu have also seen her cry, but not directly. Katsu tends to hide it, but some can see through it.
Obviously, Katsu is upset when someone dies, or someone dear to her in general is hurt by any cause, but the number one thing that will guarantee tears from Katsu is getting anyone involved with Zatsune. Katsu will act tough on the outside, proclaiming that they face Zatsune and get whoever it is back, but on the inside, she will be breaking down, panicking, and struggling not to cry. Zatsune is able to easily manipulate Katsu, and most everything Zatsune says about Katsu or her friends and family will cause Katsu to burst with tears. Katsu is slowly working towards ignoring what Zatsune says, however, but again, it is a slow process.
Katsu's appearance didn't go through that many phases, actually. From the beginning I knew I wanted her to wear pants and wear boots, but things like the cami, beanie, and gloves weren't in the original concept I had for her.
Katsu wears a dark red cami and grey jeans with black combat boots, in her redeemed form. She also has brown hair and bright green eyes, and unlike every VOCALOID model in MMD (Zatsune included), she doesn't have the "Vocaloid_Append" in her eyes. She just has the basic highlight.
And, a more recent addition would include her dark red beanie and black gloves. You're welcome to look back through my gallery and find the pictures where I'm portraying her new accessories...or click these links, cos I actually worked to find them. You're welcome.
Gloves (phase 1):waru-katsu-chan.deviantart.com…
Beanie (and kinda the gloves, too): waru-katsu-chan.deviantart.com…
When Katsu was first created, she had dark red eyes, black hair with red highlights (like Zatsune's MMD model), and the same pants and shoes. Katsu didn't have gloves or a beanie at this point. She miraculously changes appearance after seeing the truth, that Zatsune was evil and the VOCALOID were supposed to sing and make people happy.
The original timeline I had for Katsu was set up easily - she was created by Zatsune, converted, and then helped the VOCALOID fight off evil (if we're going by the AWESOME Vocaloid dimension where they kick butt). Katsu's love interest is undisclosed due to her dislike of her friends (mainly IA and Miku) "fan-girling" over her love life. That's how I am in real life, so I decided to make Katsu the same way.
This mainly follows the original, BUT, after being converted, Katsu slowly realizes her love for Rin. I became obsessed with the timeline after a while, but I follow both - picking just ONE is no fun. You can support whichever timeline you want - but do NOT argue. Not that I expect a lot of popularity, with Katsu...
-Katsu loves string cheese.
-Her VOCALOID color is dark red(y'know, like Miku has toothpaste blue).
-Katsu is a gamer.
-Katsu loves to sing, but she isn't too fond of dancing.
-Katsu, like Haku, has no voice. That doesn't stop her from singing, though. I'll let you decide how she gets past it.
-Katsu's birthday is July 9th, which is MY birthday. Surprise surprise.
-Speaking of surprises, Katsu is actually one year older than Rin. Tada~.
-Katsu doesn't like skirts. She prefers pants over any dress or skirt. Let the torment begin.
-Pervert Fact: Katsu's chest, like Rin's, is flat. Boohoo.
Rules for using Katsu in any sort of works (though I doubt you will use her):
1) Any shipping is welcome.
2) Just have fun! This is just for people who want to follow her actual story - if you don't that's completely fine!!
3) I know this is stupid, buut~ never take credit for Katsu or any piece of her profile (unless it came directly from you). Dunno why this is a rule, cos no one will use her anyways
4) Obey the first three rules. And this one.
Katsu was a lab experiment, basically, and cloned from Kagamine Rin, the popular blonde-headed VOCALOID. Katsu discovers this after meeting Zatsune Miku, her "creator." Zatsune asks Katsu a few questions before giving her clothes, and then, Katsu is trained by Zatsune to hate and despise the VOCALOID. She learns each of their names, their specialties, and how to fight them. To Zatsune, Katsu was intended to be a killing machine...
They finally invaded one of the VOCALOID's bases, trying to find information on a project they were supposedly working on. Before quite reaching the storage room, however, Yowane Haku discovers them and quickly alerts everyone else in the base. Katsu, who is wearing a hoodie at the moment, cannot be recognized as a clone, since her face is covered in darkness. Zatsune told her that if they discovered she was a clone of Rin, she was definitely done for.
They were nearly out of the base when Katsu got shot in the leg. She told Zatsune to go on (which she did), and Katsu was left in the hands of Megurine Luka and Kamui Gakupo. They quickly discover she's a clone, and it isn't long before they attempt to show her the light. Katsu is stubborn, however, and it isn't until they arrive back at the lab where she was created that they found the necessary clue that she was on the wrong side. Katsu suffers a breakdown once she finds a room full of other clones that looked just like her, except slaughtered in horrible ways. All of the pain rushed back, but Luka was there to comfort her. Katsu was brought back to their base, given new clothes, and somehow, her hair and eye color changed from black hair and red eyes to brown hair and green eyes. After that, Katsu is accepted into their family as one of them...
Rin X Katsu "Arc": (Obviously for the yuri timeline)
Katsu and Rin were determined to get revenge on Zatsune, after what she had done (killing all of the Katsu failures and such). However, Luka and Haku weren't willing to let them run right into Zatsune's palm. She was probably expecting them. But, the girls didn't let that stop them, and they ended up leaving in the night and walked into the lab. It had been cleaned up, since they were last there, so that meant no more blood, and no more dead clones. While they were walking around, the lights suddenly cut out, and when they came back on, Katsu was alone. She is forced to face her biggest fears, but through that she slowly realizes that there's something between her and Rin...something she can't put her finger on.
Meanwhile, with Rin, she is also facing her fears. One of those fears was Katsu. Rin is afraid that Katsu will somehow revert back into her old self and hurt her, but at the same time, Rin is afraid that Katsu will leave them because she's some sort of "threat."
Rin and Katsu finally reunite, and the moment that Rin runs into Katsu's arms, Katsu figures out what it is. Katsu felt something for Rin that she didn't feel for anyone else...and that was a strong love. Zatsune ends up revealing herself, revealing her evil plot to Rin and Katsu. Basically, she wanted their bond to grow, so it would "be more enjoyable to tear them apart." They engage in a fight, but Katsu, determined to protect Rin, forces herself to take all of the hits for her. And just when it seems Zatsune is going to send the final blow onto Katsu, Luka and Haku arrive on the scene. Zatsune scoffs and then vanishes, and both Katsu and Rin are rushed back home. Katsu rests, but the morning after it all happened, she confesses her feelings for Rin. Rin is reluctant at first, fearing what everyone else would think of them, but Katsu reassured her, saying "As long as I'm around, no one is going to hurt you." After that, they eventually told Luka and Haku. Haku was calm about it - Luka slightly overreacted. However, her mind was changed with some help from Haku, so all ended well.
Hiriko "Arc": (For the Yuri timeline)
It had been an entire year after Katsu and Rin were dating, and that meant that their anniversary was coming. Katsu was having trouble, so she turned to her friends for some help. After a short conversation, they arrive upon the conclusion that Katsu could clone herself again and create a child for Rin, since one of the things Rin mentioned before they were a couple was her desire of a family. So, Katsu and three of her friends (Miku, Neru, and Teto) arrived at the lab and created another clone. They didn't know what to call her, at the time, but Katsu insisted that Rin needed to help pick it, so for the time being, the child had no name.
After picking out her clothes, they all exited the lab. To greet them back home, of course, was Luka, Haku, and Rin. Questions quickly rose about who the child was, and why it looked like Katsu, and after that, Rin erupted, saying "WHO THE HELL WERE YOU WITH LAST NIGHT?!!" Katsu quickly defused her, saying she cloned herself again and created the amber-haired girl. She explained it was her anniversary gift to her, and Rin quickly changed from rage to joy, hugging her new daughter and thanking Katsu. Then, they finally decided on the name "Hiriko." Trouble quickly rises, however, as they all find out Zatsune has also cloned Katsu again, and the name of their new foe of "Waru Inari." Katsu is determined to stop Inari before things get out of hand, but she ends up getting both Rin and Hiriko involved. While Katsu and Rin are locked away, Hiriko is in a more friendly environment, and Zatsune manages to manipulate her into thinking that Katsu and Rin are not her friends. Zatsune disguises Inari as Katsu, and she has her scare Hiriko, and then Zatsune came and "saved" her.
Katsu eventually manages to escape, with the gift Rin had given her: a shark tooth necklace. She manages to sharpen it and open her door, quickly saving Rin from Inari. She finds Rin being tortured by Inari, but Katsu (through her rage) manages to beat Inari and save Rin. They quickly run around Zatsune's base, trying to find where they put Hiriko, only to find her holding hands with Zatsune, apparently on some sort of tour. Rin and Katsu quickly find out that their child has been turned against them, and they believe it to be the end once Inari arrives with a bleeding nose (from Katsu's finishing punch). Katsu and Rin stand back to back as Zatsune and Inari close in on them, and Katsu says tear-jerking goodbyes...but then Hiriko pulled on one of Zatsune's pigtails, surprising her, and then kicked her in the back of her knees. Inari quickly runs over to contain her, but Katsu once again fights her. Rin managed to get the finishing blow this time, and after Zatsune is near beaten, Inari forces herself back onto her feet, declaring that she would die before letting Zatsune get detained. Katsu discovers that Inari feels something towards Zatsune, like Katsu has towards Rin. She convinces Rin and Hiriko that they can leave, and surprisingly, Inari and Zatsune let them leave. Katsu asked why Hiriko decided to help, and Hiriko simply replied by saying "I don't know."
This one isn't that major - basically, Haku and Luka leave the VOCALOID base and get their own house, so it isn't as crowded (and they don't have to worry about a surprise leek attack every time they try to visit with Katsu and Rin). Not a lot of events in Katsu's place involve the VOCALOID base anymore.
In the second part of this arc, Haku leaves Luka so she can take care of Kibo and Hikari (her two kids). Luka is left alone with some occasional visits from everyone. The good news? Luka has a lot more time to cook, which means nine times outta ten, you'll get some baked sweets when you go over to her house.
Runaway "Arc": (For the Yuri timeline)
This arc has less to do with Katsu than it has to do with Hiriko. Rin and Katsu have been together for quite some time and Hiriko's a young lady - however, she notices Katsu and Rin fighting extremely often. She doesn't know why, but they're fighting. Hiriko's scared, and thus goes to her best friend Kibo. Hikari acted older than she really was, so she was already acting like a stupid teenager...Kibo and Hiriko, however, were the absolute best of friends. And so, Hiriko tells Kibo how worried she is, and Kibo does her best to comfort her.
One day, during lunch, Kibo, Haku, and Hikari have all come over to visit. Katsu makes lunch for everyone, and everything's alright until Rin arrives. They have a quiet fight at first, so no one hears them, and then they excuse themselves from the dining room. Even after they leave into another room, leaving Hiriko with all three guests, it was still clear that Rin and Katsu were fighting yet again. Hiriko, with the pressure finally getting to her, runs away to her secret place. Kibo finds her, however, since Hiriko had shown her this place before. Eventually, Kibo manages to cheer her up, but just as they're leaving, Zatsune appears and kidnaps them both. It's still unclear how she managed to find them there in the first place.
Zatsune treats Hiriko just like Katsu - with beating and torture. She treats Kibo like a princess, putting her in a friendly-looking environment. Both girls are unwilling to tell Zatsune what she wants (VOCALOID secrets and such). Eventually, Zatsune gives Hiriko a scar, and once Hiriko and Kibo are reunited, Zatsune prepares to kill them both. She plans to kill Kibo first, so that'll spark some fight from Hiriko, but just as Zatsune pulls the trigger, Hiriko screws up her aim. Zatsune wildly fires off into the wall, and then attempts to kill Hiriko. However, Hiriko is only wounded in her side (nothing important was hit, no worries). Kibo and Hiriko slip out of the room after Kibo manages to land a needle in Zatsune's arm, but shortly after they begin running wildly throughout the scary territory, Zatsune is hunting them down. The girls had one close call, but nonetheless they escape. They begin their journey back home, wherever that is, but Hiriko soon becomes weak and can no longer move. She's bled a lot since she was shot, and Kibo suspects that she's beginning to bleed out. Panicking, she begins to rub her eyes in an attempt to stop her tears, but Hiriko tries to comfort her. Just when everything seems hopeless, both girls are rescued, but not by Katsu or Rin. Gakupo had come out into the forest to practice with his sword, but he was surprised to see Hiriko and Kibo. After taking both girls back to his house, he bandages up Hiriko, who miraculously heals on their way back to Katsu's and Rin's. He doesn't stay long - he leaves Haku with them and then departs. Haku asks what happened, but neither of the girls are giving a lot of detail. They say they want to see Rin and Katsu, first. Haku told them where she saw them last, and then the girls were on their way. Hiriko was excited at first to tell them about her adventure, but just as she approaches their room, Katsu is storming out, shouting at Rin. Rin shouts back, and then Katsu leaves, not even noticing Hiriko, who begins to cry. It was too late.
Breakup "Arc": (For the Yuri timeline)
After almost six years together, sometime after Hiriko's fifteenth birthday, Rin and Katsu get into a fight, which quickly changes from Rin saying "I love you too much to see you get hurt," to Rin shouting at her, "Well maybe I'm just tired of you being such an idiot!!" After that, Katsu put up a strong facade and accepted it. However, right after she found herself alone, she quickly broke down. Katsu ended up going back to Luka's, since Rin wouldn't be looking for her anyway...She basically locked herself in her old room and only came out to get food or a drink. After being hidden away for a month, she started getting visits from her friends, like Teto, Miku, and Gumi. However, Katsu pushed them all away. Teto was her last visit before Katsu decided she needed to go outside for a walk...Well, not before receiving a short scolding from Luka.
Katsu blamed no one but Rin for what happened through rage. Rin took everything - Hiriko, their house - the only thing Katsu got was her stuff all crammed into a cardboard box.
During her walk, she happened to see Rin and Hiriko on their way to the store. Katsu brushed them off, however, continuing her walk silently. She didn't get back to Luka's until later that night, but she wasn't expecting to see Luka tending to a passed out Rin on the couch. Luka explained that she had went out looking for Katsu, but instead found Rin unconscious not far from her house. Hiriko was nowhere to be found...
Immediately after hearing that, Katsu quickly began to pack her backpack. She was going to save Hiriko, because even if Rin didn't want Katsu anywhere near Hiriko, Katsu would do anything to protect her daughter. She knew where to look, as well - the lab. It had been abandoned since Katsu was created, but it was the only place she could think of at the time.
She ended up finding Hiriko in the most untouched room in the entire facility. No one was considered a failure, so the scientists basically sealed off the room from the rest of the building...The Deletion room. It would permanently delete a VOCALOID from all sources, essentially erasing them from existence.
Katsu was shocked to see Hiriko in there, but all by herself. Neither Zatsune nor Inari were there. Hiriko was about to delete herself. Katsu quickly tore her away from the machine, asking why she did it. Hiriko, who isn't speaking a word, is silently struggling against her. Katsu discovers that Hiriko's eyes changed from blue and green to red, matching Zatsune's. Katsu wasn't sure how to fix it, but she knew who might know. Katsu forcefully took Hiriko to Luka's house, and when she got there, Rin was awake. Rin tried to argue with her, but Katsu kept her priorities straight. Hiriko's eyes changed back to normal, but only after Rin and Katsu both apologized to each other and made up. After Hiriko explains her depression after hearing the news of their breakup, they discover that Katsu also thought about using the Deletion room. Luka pointed out that Hiriko probably knows of its existence solely because of Katsu, since she was cloned from her and Rin. But, nonetheless, after some tears, Katsu and Rin were back together.
Marriage "Arc": (Coming Soon for Yuri timeline)
Everything seems peaceful once again. Katsu and Rin have aged a little, and now Hiriko and Kibo are on their way to adulthood (not quite there yet). As Katsu established to everyone after she and Rin got married, she's through with fighting. She's left it up to Hiriko, her only child. Hiriko, since then, has been training alongside Kibo. Their friendship grows to be strong, by this point, along with their physical strength.
However, a new girl Alice surprised everyone. The girl showed up in one of the VOCALOID bases, but the only proof she was there was a sighting made by Len and Kaito (two more Vocaloids, for those who don't know). She was reported to make no noise whatsoever, and as Kaito said, "She moved like prey but looked like a predator." He basically described her as seemingly innocent but with a dangerous aura about her.
She made a second appearance at another base, except this time Hiriko and Kibo were on guard there. The two girls managed to apprehend their "visitor," only suffering a single casualty (Alice injured her arm). However, Hiriko and Kibo were, coincidentally, the only ones at the base, at the time. They had to guard their guest until Miku and the others arrived. So, to pass the time, Kibo and Hiriko tried talking to her. After Alice remained silent, they wondered if she could speak at all. The girl, surprisingly, answered by shaking her head. Kibo got a notebook, so the girl could communicate with them, and this is when we actually find out that her name is Alice. She explains that she was created by Zatsune, so, in a way...is Katsu's sister.
After a little more talking, it is discovered that Alice didn't really mean any harm at all. Zatsune had actually tried to kill her, since she was "broken," like all of the other Katsu clones that didn't make the cut. Alice was surprised she managed to escape. She discovered she couldn't speak (or make certain sounds, for that matter) immediately after Zatsune began to test her. Alice also apologized for hurting Kibo, and in turn Hiriko apologized for tackling her afterwards.
When Miku arrived, it's noticed that Katsu and Haku have accompanied her. Hiriko begins to explain who Alice is, but it doesn't settle well with Katsu. As soon as she finds out that Alice is supposed to be her sister, Katsu is outraged. Katsu is furious that 1) Zatsune made another clone, 2) She was unable to stop her from making another clone, and 3) there's always a chance Alice could turn. Haku reminds Katsu that everyone accepted her in the beginning, but Katsu further explains that there was one thing she never mentioned before. As Katsu explains, everyone is terrified once they discover that both Katsu and Alice are in danger of turning at any moment. Miku remarks, "I knew you locked yourself in your room, but I figured you had company..."
It's declared that a close eye be kept on Katsu and Alice from now on, but both are to be considered like family. Katsu shouldn't be viewed any differently than she has been viewed, and Alice is just scared and needs comfort. Later on, Katsu describes what it's like when Zatsune's control begins to seep back into her mind. A cold comes over her, and her head starts to hurt. A small voice whispers in her ears, and her body begins to move involuntarily. And so, Katsu usually locks herself in her room to fight against it when these symptoms appear.
Alice is another story. She's easily influenced and threatened, so it wasn't long before the voice took over her and Alice was fighting against the Vocaloids. Rin, who just so happened to be with her at the time, was curious as to what was wrong (word hadn't spread yet about Zatsune's control suddenly overtaking her or Katsu). Rin was, unfortunately, Alice's first victim. Katsu arrived just in time, however, and fought Alice. She might have been old, but her fighting skills weren't gone yet. She was prepared to beat Alice until she had real bruises covering her entirely, but Hiriko and Rin managed to stop her. It took a long time before Katsu forgave Alice, but in any case, she did...but only after Alice nearly killed herself. Hiriko, being who she is, said this to Alice: "I promise that as long as I'm around, you don't have to hurt anyone anymore." Alice, in a way, views Hiriko as an anchor to keep her mind where it belongs. And of course, sometimes this causes jealousy on Kibo's part, but she's mature about it...most of the time.
The time has come to end it. It's the final showdown between Katsu and Zatsune. Creation versus creator. Zatsune had invited Katsu to this final battle with a letter. She wrote that "If you bring anyone else, I'm blowing the entire lab up. Bring no one." Katsu, knowing what she was stepping into, accepted the terms and met Zatsune at the lab. They stood in a hallway, prepared for the battle...
The fight ensued, and it was obvious that on both ends there were weaknesses. Katsu had stopped fighting for a while, so she wasn't as agile as she used to be. Zatsune had been dealing with her own problems, such as trying to cope with everything being taken from her, to loneliness, to almost going insane. Zatsune hadn't fought her own battle for a long time, and after creating three different clones (Katsu, Inari, and Alice) and seeing them all leave was too much for her to bear. Zatsune soon gave up, falling to her knees in defeat. The knife was in Katsu's hand. Her creator barely could stand on her own two legs...but she apologized. Tears streamed down her face as she acknowledged every wrong she had done and admitted there was no justification for her now. "Killing me is the only mercy you can give me," She said. "But I don't even deserve that much...!" Katsu approached her, standing before her. Zatsune waited to see what she would do, and to her surprise, Katsu hugged her, accepting her apology. She finally accepted her as a human being, and Zatsune accepted Katsu and Alice as her children. After this, peace remained...
But the story doesn't have to end here. What happens now is in your hands.
And of course, if you want a f*cked up ending, here ya go: Katsu still hugs Zatsune, but stabs her in the back anyhow. Katsu leaves Zatsune to die in the lab, and then goes home like nothing happen...
Certainly one of the most important places, Katsu ends up revisiting this place, despite her horrible memories of it. Katsu was created here, faced fearsome trials, and even saved her daughter Hiriko from deleting herself. The lab is constantly brought back up, and was Zatsune's most popular hideout before she disappeared with Inari. It was abandoned shortly after Katsu's creation, but nonetheless, it won't be forgotten anytime soon.
...But it was brought back for one final match between Katsu and Zatsune.
Luka and Haku's House
This is where Katsu lived for the longest time with Haku and Rin. Therefore, Katsu and Rin formed a strong bond by being with each other for so long. Katsu runs here after breaking up with Rin, and also the place she would go if something were wrong.
The VOCALOID Base
This is where the VOCALOID meet if they're facing a threat. This hasn't been used since Inari appeared, but it's always standing by and locked down until they come back. It's constantly checked on by Gakupo, probably once every month. Just to make sure there hasn't been a break-in.
Inari was a second attempt at making a purely evil Katsu. Her hair was pure black, along with her eyes, and for a while I actually considered mentioning her...However, in the end, I decided Inari wasn't important enough to be included. Not even that - Inari would have been the third clone to look like Rin (Katsu and Hiriko being the first two). I don't want to have so many, so I excluded Inari from Katsu's bio. However, if you're curious, I'll go into a little more detail.
Inari thought just like Zatsune, in the beginning. Torture and violence were the only ways to get what you want, and fun time was always on the mind. However, Katsu managed to convince her that there was more to life than to making others miserable. Inari knew of Zatsune's struggles, but she had sworn to never tell another soul about it...Inari forever kept that promise. In the timeline, Inari most likely would have shown up right after the Hiriko Arc.
I tend to keep real life people out of stories like this, but I did mention that Robert and Haku had Hiriko and Hikari, so this one can kinda slide...he's just not that involved...
Wait a minute, Hikari!
Hikari is in the main story, but like Robert, she isn't very involved. That's quite shocking, considering that she's Kibo's sister. Hikari, for the most part, supports her sister and gives her advice when she needs it. Hikari's her comfort before Hiriko, and currently when Hiriko's not around. Hikari is considered a little more responsible than her younger sister, but she does still have a mischievous mind.
Ha ha, I know, cheesy. But, I'd like to think that I'd be greatly included in Katsu's life. I'd probably be the one causing everything to happen (telling Zatsune to create Katsu and such). You know, creating these situations. But, realistically, I'd probably be just a regular friend, since I technically wouldn't have created her in this world. In this world, she'd probably disregard me as a complete weirdo...but I can live with that.
Okay, that wraps this up. Thanks, if you actually read this...I doubt any of you did. But, I guess this is more for me, so I never forget about my beloved characters whom I never want to forget. Thanks for reading, if you stuck with me. Comments and faves are appreciated, and don't forget to ask questions if you have any~!!
