Rune Winterspell is the main protagonist of the Magience webcomic . A Fae (Kitari) / Yokai (Amanojaku) Hybrid, she's an energetic and slightly silly character who well lives up to her racial profile. She became a Dragoon after rescuing an injured dragon from captivity on her very first day in the game. Her Player is Crystal Rose. Her Element is Aether. She first appears on Ch1 P45 .
AppearanceEditRune stands at 5 feet 9 inches, weighing 140 lbs. She has lavender-colored hair that reaches to about mid-thigh, usually pulled back into two thin pigtails by pink ribbons. Her eyes are mis-matched; the right is the same blue as her eyes in real life, the left is a soft silver. Her ears are long and pointed; not as long or wide as a Pure Fae's, but not as short as a Yokai's either. She does have Yokai's fangs and tribal tattoos, though true to Fae style the tattoos are spiraling and pink; the markings are removed when she becomes a Dragoon. There's a pink oval gem embedded in her brow, but it's usually hidden by her fringe.
There's always a spiraling hair sticking out of her fringe.
She's as flat as a board, with no real curves except for her wide hips.
The clothes she wears usually incorporate different shades of pink, and black. The only exception are her boots; like many others in the comic, her boots are a dark, leathery brown.
Due to the freedom of not having her "real" face or name being shown, Rune often acts as she wishes she would in real life: impulsive, inquisitive, energetic, and completely without guilt. She does what she wants to, when she wants to, and rarely thinks of the consequences.
She likes to cause a little bit of trouble here and there, and tends to lose her temper quite often. She dislikes liars, or people who'd betray friends / family. Despite seeming to be close to Raven, she seems to wander off away from him and disregard anything he says.
Rune greatly dislikes being touched, especially by strangers (mostly men) that seem threatening to her.
Rune favors Magic , and prefers not getting hit during combat. This aside, she still likes getting up close and personal and taking care of things herself; as such, she has high Agility and Wisdom, giving her a wide range both in spell arsenal and movement/dodge capability.
