| Caring | Loving | Protective | Hardworking | A bit Tsundere |
Chime is a very caring and protective towards those who are close to her. She desires to be accepted by people and to be loved due to her past. Even with a nightmare past, she still would do anything to make people happy. She rather sees a smile than a frown on anyone. Childish at times, Chime has a little hard time warming up to others; especially when she is flustered. She prefers to be close to people because she has always been afraid to be alone. She has the worse sense of direction, and always tends to get lost, so wearing bells helps people keep track of where she is. Chime likes to sleep a lot and be lazy at times but when it comes to working she will do her best so that she wont be a burden to anyone. She wants to be a dependable person rather than have to always depend on others. When she meets new people, her shy side will show, but slowly she will open up. And when it comes to love, she is super dense about it... so be straight forward... or she won't know it. At times she may be a little bit clingy, but only to those that are close to her. Also she is a little clumsy. She loves the smell of sweets and tea; the smell calms her and remind her of her mother.
Chime lived in a small village with her single mother. She knows little of her father nor has she met him. But her mother provided the love that she needed. Chime's mother was a baker and her bake good were always very delicious. Her mother would take time out to teach Chime how to bake, cook, make crepes. Even though she had poor health, caused by all the stress of being a single mother. In the village, the people didn't accept Chime because of her different eye colour and because she didn't have a father. They always thought she was a monster, a freak, a demon, a bad omen. They treated her poorly, always bullying her, blaming her for the tragedy that happens in the village.
But Chime's mother protected her from them, as a result she would keep chime indoors most of the time. Soon the villagers forgot about Chime's existence. That is until her mother died of sickness. Chime was 14 then, and the thought of her mother gone clouded her mind. For a year and a half she survived oh the food she had left, until it ran out. She knew she had to go out to get more food, but she was afraid. However, she didn't have a choice cause now she was alone. When she went out the villagers saw her eyes and remembered Chime. Everything came back, the glares, the painful words, the memories it all came back. Now that her mother wasn't there, the villagers attacked her and threw her out of the village, forcing Chime to survive in the woods.
She wondered for days, without food or water. Not knowing where she should go; she was at the point where she was about to give up... she was tired... afraid... alone...
That's when she saw a small figure sitting up in a tree, it was a boy. The boy asked Chime "Are you lost?" She stared at him for a moment before saying "Uh..." but then she realized he can see her different coloured eyes, she turned and covered her face. She was afraid to show her eyes to anyone now. She wanted to hide... but than she heard "You have such pretty eyes" she quickly turned, flustered a bit but was surprised. No one, other than her mother, had said that to her. She didn't know what to say... the boy then introduced himself, "Hi, I'm Mana. What is your name?" Without knowing it Chime replied, "Ah...Ch...ime- my name is Chime"
"What are you doing out here in the woods?"
"...I-I was thrown out of my village......"
"...hm... why don't you come to my place? Momma says it's bad to be out late." he said as he reaches his hand out.
Mana led her back to his home; his mother cleaned her Chime up and gave her some food. His family wasn't uncomfortable with her eyes; instead they were fascinated by it. Tears shed down her cheek; she wasn't sad but extremely happy. She burst into tears without realizing it. Mana's family was shocked and thought they did something wrong, but Chime explained to them that she wasn't sad but happy. And she told them her story.
She then on lived with Mana and his family; she would try to do her best to help out. Often she would bake for Mana's family, they loved her baking.
One night Chime went out for a walk, Mana told her not to stray off the path. But without knowing it she wandered off the path, she was lost. She panicked and started walking aimlessly, she cried for help, but no response. She was scared now, didn't know what to do. Tears flowed from her eyes, everything was so dark... then she heard, "--Ch... Chim... Chime..." it was Mana's voice, she ran over screaming his name, "Mana! Mana!" Closer and closer the voice got "Chime? Chime!" She rushed over to Mana and hugged him tightly, crying.
It was then after the accident, for Chime's birthday, Mana gave her a bell bracelet. The bell's sound was so clear; it was the most beautiful gift she had received. And it was the first birthday present, other than her mother, she has gotten. Mana told her, if she ever got lost, he will be able to find her.
Mana's father was a sword swallower. And so Mana always loved the circus. One day Mana and Chime went to Cirque Des Reves, they were both fascinated by everything in the circus. They both loved the performances and the foods there; it was like the place of their dreams. It felt so magical and mysterious. It was then both of them decided to try out for Circus Des Reves, together. This way the can both do what they both like and it could be a new beginning for Chime.
