Karibuchi Takami (雁淵孝美?) is a Witch of the 508th Joint Fighter Wing, originating from Fuso and attached with the Fuso Imperial Navy. She has completely ripened in the Shiden Model 11 and her personality has been judged as suitable for a JFW's senior.

In the air, her spirit to fight bravely is full of vim and vigor. Rushing at the enemy ahead of anyone else, Takami is the owner of an exceptional capacity to shoot down the enemy with precise piloting skills.

Despite her immature features, Takami has a cheerful personality to always keep smiling no matter what kind of predicament she meets. She can speak to anyone intimately, without paying mind to rankings. Someone who immediately strives for a solution upon discovering a problem, she possesses a great ability to always have the harmony of the squad in mind.

Takami has been acquaintances with Squadron Leader Shindou since their time in Libau, who fully understands her skills and personality.

She is based on Oshibuchi Takashi (鴛淵孝).

Background Edit

As her focus was on the ground forces, Takami wasn't aboard a carrier often. Still, when the 508th Joint Fighter Wing was established, she was elected by Squadron Leader Shindou as one of the original members. Navigation on the sea is something that is thoroughly driven into a Fuso Witch, even those on the ground forces, and because the skill to easily handle takeoff's and landing's aboard carrier's is something demanded from everyone, the fact Takami was from the ground forces didn't became much of a problem.

AbilitiesEdit

Takami eyes blue
Takami can use a type of magic in her eyes, allowing her to detect Neuroi cores. It should be noted that the implementation and functional parameters of Takami's magical eyes is vastly different from that of magical eyes of witches like Mio. While Takami can use her eyes to locate a Neruoi's core: the way in which it does so is done differently than how witches like Mio locate cores; and are almost similar in style to thermal radiation infrared detection.

In addition to her standard use of her particular type of magic eyes: she possesses an unknown ability she called the "Absolute Eye"(Zettai Magan). She uses a massive quantity of magic energy, if not all of her magic power to speed up her perception of her surroundings, observation ability, analytical capability and reaction time to destroy a large number of Neuroi simultaneously. Her hair and eyes' colors changes to red when the full extent of her ability is unleashed. However, the drawback of this ability would be making making herself vulnerable to enemy attacks, as it seems her power may allow her to speed up her observational perception and target acquisition: it doesn't at all affect her reaction time. Aside from leaving her potential open to attacks from the enemy when using her power, since it seems that to use "Absolute Eyes" she has to remain stationary to get a proper analysis and target acquisition of the enemy, use of the ability also seems to use a lot of magical energy and drain Takami's stamina due to the magical requirements needed to use this ability.

EquipmentEdit

Takami uses a Solothurn S-18/100 20 mm Anti-Tank rifle. It had a semi-automatic action in a bullpup configuration. As a result of using large and powerful ammunition, the gun had a drawback of tremendous recoil, and the size made it difficult to carry. The gun used 20×105mm ammunition which it shared with the S-18-350 aircraft cannon that was developed from the rifle.

However while the size and recoil would be of considerable concern for a conventional soldier, witches like Air infantry witches in the air infantry sniper role like Takami are better able to handle use of the Solothurn. As for Takami herself, she is an exceptional sniper with her Solothurn, being able to fire her Solothurn and destroy typical Neruoi air units while on the move decently, and her skill and combat experience with the weapon even allowed her to destroy a multitude of small neruoi air units along side Kano Nao while performing impressive, tandem aerobatic combat maneuvers and taking advantage of the Solothurns Semi-automatic action.
