Corr'ulta 'Demi' Maezuri is tall for a male Fyunnen, though his abnormal height just makes the Fyunnen boy's slight figure stand out further. His casual name, Demi, is a pointed reference to the miniature pair of wings on his back, reaching barely to his elbows, and he has often been told, “Demi, you grew so fast your wings never had time to get big,” by his direct family, and this detail has always been a sore point of discussion. Demi has inherited the dark skin of his mother in addition to her great height and goldenrod eyes, contrasting nicely against the pale crop of hair he keeps jaggedly short and undyed. The child also has sharp, feminine facial features, enhancing the awkward androgyny of his figure. His ears are typical for a Fyunnen and one has a small stone stud pierced through the left ear, near the tip, that he prizes more than anything in his possession.

Corr'ulta 'Demi' Maezuri Fyunnen is, like his father, a caretaker and servant at heart, though his Fyunnen heritage bleeds out in a poorly directed fury when he sees those close to him in distress. His ability to follow orders well and drive to protect others makes Maezuri close to a perfect soldier, though he struggles against his odd appearance and the stellar reputation of his sister, an ace starfighter pilot serving a tour in the PDF forces on Lor. His comraderie among trainees marks Maezuri out as a potential leader, though he fails to show the direct initiative necessary to ever merit the promotion.
Demi enjoys the tasks of housekeeping, but conforms readily and deliberately to martial pursuits, having earned a commedation for close-quarter marksmanship as well as being an avid duelist with both blade and pistol. Maezuri enjoys collecting stones for small favors and has a small assortment of his favorites, gotten from pretty girls, tied to a growing length of leather cord that he wears about his waist or neck on most occasions. Maezuri will enjoy a meal, any meal, and displays a taste for spicy foods and items with an odd quality to them, his favorite snack being Yamataian fermented beans, called natto, a treat his grandfather enjoys even more than Maezuri. Friends and family blame the old man for introducing the boy to his oddball taste buds.
Corr'ulta shows displeasure at the hardship of others around him and is relentless and sometimes even callous in redressing the balance. The only thing he reacts to worse is being lied to or mislead, a sure-fire way to earn his lasting ire. Maezuri shows very little negativity towards much anything else, though mentioning his runt wings hits a sore nerve.
Corr'ulta 'Demi' Maezuri Fyunnen was born near the end of the first year of Yamatai's formation and the birth of the Lorath Matriarchy. Maezuri's parents had always been adventurous and, after having their second child, decided to immediately resume their careers, leaving behind one of Hratta's subordinates to mentor the children while they were on tour. 'Thunderbolt' Raharu happily obliged, tutoring Garna rigourously in the short time before she pursued a career as a flight officer in the LSDF.
Relatively ignored for several years by Raharu, Maezuri picked up a smattering of housekeeping skills and odd habits from his eccentric grandfather, a veteran crippled during the revolution that saw the Helashio enslaved. Kraed, Maezuri's grandmother and accomplished officer, took issue with Raharu's neglect the first time she visited her extended family in YE23, seeing the spark in her grandson that had not been instilled in her son-in-law. The argument quickly broke down into a physical conflict when it became apparent that Raharu felt men were best suited to housekeeping, where Kraed felt it was the duty of every member of the Fyunnen House to serve in the military. Surprisingly to both combatants, Maezuri broke up the fight with stern words to both of the women and Raharu agreed to mentor the boy, impressed in her own right with how quick he took to lessons unlike his stubbornly independent sister and she was more than content with his lack of personal initiative that would see the boy languish in the lower ranks. The events brought about by first contact with Yamatai and their conflict with the Mishhu, including his grandmother's death in action and the title and duty of Family Retainer placed on his Aunts shoulders, settled Maezuri's initial dislike for the outworlders and their empire, lighting the spark that led him to enlist in the Self-Defense Forces rather than become a steward like his father.
LSDF Trishka: Assigned YE33
Demi deployed with a small team under the command of Ensign Se'len Tre'n to plant an explosive in the powerplant of a contested station complex, fighting through both Mishhu and Black Coat forces to reach the objective and let the asset, a one Ah'kin Gotz 'Blast', set up the bomb. Despite taking fire at several points and having to negotiate around damaged or heavily occupied sections, the team planted the bomb and evacuated safely before vaporising the objective.
