* Duty - Loli-chan must defend goodness and true love (here, "true love" includes any and all forms of love, including many which may be illegal in a given country) at all times.
* Enemies - Professor H (still believes Loli-Chan belongs to him, has Mind Control and Transform (Mental) powers), Pervert Patrol (believes Loli-Chan is an aberration which must be healed or cleansed, mostly non-powered but there are some mystics (primarily wielding uncontrolled artifacts) and anyone could be a member of them), various demons and moral rights groups
* Reputation - Loli-chan is, well, clearly underage and dressed terribly provocatively. The fanfiction written by her fan club doesn't help matters either.
* Reputation / Duty - Loli-Chan has a fan club. Kohaku doesn't want this fan club, as they largely run into fights to get panty shots and post said shots on the internet along with lemon fanfiction. Loli-chan, however, has to defend them because, after all, they are advancing the cause of "true love"
* Secret - Kohaku must hide the fact that she is Loli-chan from the public, both because enemies might target her in her non-powered form and because it would ruin her life.SUMMARY

Satosaka Kohaku was your typical high schooler. She wasn't extremely popular, but she had her friends and she had her club activities. One day, as she was heading home from school, she saw a little old man being set upon by a group of young thugs. Kohaku was galvanized into action and charged in, backpack swinging wildly. The old man thanked her profusely and claimed that the young men were not just thugs, but were enemies of his who sought to prevent him from spreading love and joy in the world. Before Kohaku could speak a word in question, the old man straightened up and thrust one hand up in the air. Rainbows shot down from the sky and the seeming old man transformed into a dashing sorcerer in his mid-30's. He took Kohaku's hand and asked her if she would stand with him, to protect the world and to help his cause, offered to make her a magical girl, a defender of love from all of those who would oppose it. Kohaku had heard of magic before and, as a child, had dreamed of growing up to be a magical girl. And now, here was her chance. She eagerly said yes and he pressed a rainbow colored brooch into her hands. "Take this," he said and she could feel a tingle from the broach as she held it closer to her face to examine its details, "It is now attuned to you and, no matter what forces you face, you now can never lose it. Come to the playground around the corner at midnight tonight and I will instruct you in your duties." And, with that, he vanished. Kohaku stumbled home, in a daze, wondering whether this could have all been a dream. But, when she went to the playground that night, the sorcerer stood there. proud and tall. He told her to hold the brooch above her head. "This first time, I will have to empower the brooch. Thereafter, you will be able to transform whenever there is trouble, whenever evil fills the air." Rainbows streamed from his fingertips and encircled Kohaku. She could feel a definite change, although it was subtle. The world became a little bit more clear. Her body felt full of energy, ready to perform at a moment's notice and she... was shrinking? Much to Kohaku's horror, she felt herself getting shorter, her arms and legs getting stubbier. She tried to let go of the brooch, but it stuck to her hands. A rustling in the bushes made the sorcerer's head shoot up. "My enemies have found me. I just need to magically impress upon you your mission..." and his hands shot forward, the rainbows redoubling. Kohaku could feel her mind twisting, reshaping itself. The master is right... the master must be obeyed. Love must be free and not persecuted no matter the size, the shape, the age...
She fought as best she could, but she could feel the voices overwhelm her, crushing her sense of self and replacing it. That's when the rock struck the sorcerer. He fell to one knee, blood streaming down one side of his face, and the rainbows ceased. Kohaku fell to one stubby knee, a distance of maybe ten inches at most from her standing position and fought the remaining voices in her head. "There's the pervert!" a voice cried and one of the young boys from before leaped out of the bushes. The sorcerer, still bleeding, looked straight into Kohaku's eyes and spoke, "This isn't over. You are mine now." And then, he vanished once more. The boy skidded to a halt and spoke a harsh curse into the night. He then turned to Kohaku and recoiled. "What... what are you?" Smite the unbeliever! Topple the tyrant! The master is...
Kohaku once more fought down the voices and looked down at her arms and legs. The clothing she'd been wearing had been transformed into what looked like a child's version of a seifuku. Pink... of course, it was pink. With a flush of embarrassment, she realized that the skirt, while a somewhat more pleasing white color, was mildly translucent and was currently showing that her undergarments had been transformed as well. "I... I'm..." and the voices took hold once more, bring her to her feet, one arm above her head suddenly clutching a wand covered in ribbons. "I am Magical Pretty Princess Loli-Chan, Defender of Free Love and you will be punished!
" And there, she wound to a halt. The boy must be punished! But... why? I don't even know him. The master says...
She closed her eyes and forced the voices back down. When she opened her eyes, all of the boys she'd seen that morning attacking the man were standing to one side of the playground, arguing quietly but fiercely. She could only catch a few words of it. "... transformed... tainted by him... needs to be cured... destroyed" As much as Kohaku wanted answers, she valued self-preservation more. She turned and pumped her chubby little legs, moving almost impossibly fast as she sped out of the playground. With no effort at all, she cleared a ten foot chain link fence. What... what am I? I am Magical Pretty Princess Loli-Chan, Defender of Free Love and... Oh, shut up.
To her amazement, the voices stilled and let her be. Still, what was she?
Since that fateful day, Kohaku has grown to accept that she is stuck with this role, but she fights to conquer the overrides the sorcerer (who she now knows goes by the name of Professor H) placed on her, but she's found that her magical girl form is all too prone to suggestion. On the other hand, it sports impressive physical attributes despite her diminutive size, and said attributes have only increased with intensive training. Lacking any source of formal source of training, Kohaku has turned her magical girl form into a bit of a brawler. Not terribly fast or accurate, but able to take a great deal of punishment and able to inflict said punishment back, although her ability to fight is greatly decreased without her wand. Still, she has accounted well enough for herself, fighting various demonic creatures and the occasional pervert (although she generally has to marshal her will to keep from defending
said pervert). As Kohaku, she's managed a fairly normal high school life, although she's starting to think that her friends suspect something is going on with her, but she's pretty sure they haven't figured out the specifics.PERSONALITY
As Magical Princess Loli-Chan, Kohaku is alternately perky and friendly or sullen and argumentative. The nature of the form is to be friendly, really to be... overly friendly, but Kohaku is constantly battling this aspect. Despite the mental overlay, Kohaku retains her maturity in the other form, although she finds her thinking more than a tad fuzzy.TACTICS
Magical girls are, by a rule, supposed to fight in teams, with each member's strength supporting the other's weakness. Their ignorance is compensated by wise spiritual advisors. They are generally dependent on a mysterious defender who arrives in their time of greatest need. Loli-Chan has never been a proper magical girl and has therefore largely learned for forge for herself. Her natural inclination is to charge in and start blasting bad guys indiscriminately, trusting in her magical protection to keep her from harm. She has also picked up a most un-magical-girl tendency to pick up objects around her like telephone poles and uninhabited cars and to use them as improvised weapons.Build explanation / rationale
^_^ Early on, I figured on a magical girl since we didn't have one already. The next fun bit is making them interesting. I considered a Dark Magical Girl
(specifically, I was thinking of Sailor H from Magical Girl Hunters), then remembered a magical girl anime where the girl in question was a grade-schooler who transformed into an older woman and primarily used her Disguise Pen to change her uniform each episode (Fancy LaLa
I see now). I had also considered submitting someone who was a Chibi by nature (c.f. Chibi Sue in Ghastly's Ghastly Webcomic (NSFW) or Katie of Project Chibification
but that goes against the "non-obviousness" clause for the campaign. I wound up settling on someone whose magical form was much younger than the normal form. This led on to a backstory involving a perverted sorcerer. The powers / abilities were largely a matter of my semi-random build process followed by me finding justifications and then tuning things to more closely fit the evolving concept. I blame the initial concept on a lack of sleep, but I think it could be interesting to play.Satosaku KohakuAPPEARANCE

Since she's had to assume the form of Loli-Chan, Kohaku has had to change her life somewhat. She had aspired to become a mangaka
and was starting to excel in her computer classes, but now her nights are spent fighting evil and she's had to devote free time into honing her ability to escape from notice (her Stealth skill) and has started taking Jujitsu classes so that she's not entirely helpless when her second life interferes (although she's pretty sure her secret identity remains secret to all but possibly Professor H, she's become a minor trouble magnet). Fortunately, some of the training she's done as Loli-Chan has bled back into her regular persona such as the acrobatics and dodging training.
