"Yo, I'm Mayu Visconti, but then again, I don't exactly know who I am myself. I'm as much a human as I am a machine, most of my previous life vanished with half my original body. I forgot how to feel a long time ago, but I guess it's nice to meet you too."
Mayu is one of the characters in the series. She is a 9th grader at Paprika Private Academy. She is a Cool-type idol. Her brand is Clockwork Puppet. This character is RPed with MidnightManacchi.
Mayu has shoulder-length black-purple hair and curls inwards slightly at the ends and bangs that slightly obscure her eyes. Her eyes are black-purple and seem lifeless. She is the same inside and outside of PriPara.
Mayu is very distant and prefers to be alone. She sometimes does not show up at school for "unspecified reasons', but is still very intelligent. She is not very emotive, never showing any emotions other than her indifferent face.
Three years before the start of the series, Mayu was in a large fire in her apartment building, which killed her family and severely burned most of her body. However, she survived, and was found by investigators, but was on the verge of death. She was taken to a hospital for surgery, but all her surgeries failed, leaving her with one option to live.
I'm a machine?
Mayu was taken to Alicia Visconti's lab where she was fitted with cybernetic parts to help her live. Half of her body was replaced by machinery to compensate for the parts burned in the fire, turning Mayu into a cyborg. Parts of her brain and heart were fitted with cybernetic plates, her left eye and arm her completely replaced with machinery and most of the rest of her body was fitted with minor cybernetic parts to help her live. She became emotionless and lost a fair amount of her memory, including her surname and previous life. Alicia became her adoptive mother and Mayu was given the serial code 131MA389Y143U. She enrolled into Paprika Private Academy and took on the name Mayu Visconti (マユ・ヴィスコンティ Mayu Visukonti).
