Nick Kelly's Profile: What There Is to Know About Me
TEN FREAKIN' YEARS, BABY!!! WOO-HOO!!!!
About Me & Random Things
My name is Nick. That much should be obvious.
I'm twenty-four years old, taking a break from college due to recent things happening in my life (it's more of a technical college), and an obviously avid writer, having been a part of Fanfiction.net since October 2002. I seriously cannot believe that I have been a member of this site for TEN FREAKING YEARS and I haven't lost it yet. Holy crap, I feel so old.
As for what I write, I like to write action stuff with emotional and fluffy stuff tied in to it. I'm trying to not have my original characters be in the spotlight all the time, but it's tricky. I'm getting by, though.
I write mostly for Ojamajo Doremi nowadays, with stories of all shapes and sizes. My most focused-on work, Ojamajo Doremi or not, has GOT to be "Ojamajo Doremi Breakaway" and all of its various companion pieces, movies, one-shots, and that kind of thing. I'm still surprised that what started as a simple interpretation of a vivid dream I had back in November or so of 2007 became the story I associate with most. Which is odd, considering I'm an only child. I want a sister so badly!!
I like to play video games in my spare time. I like all kinds of genres, but I'll tell you my favorites. I like platformers (Sonic, Mario, Rayman, that kind of thing), RPGs, especially those that stray from the norm (Final Fantasy, Tales, Kingdom Hearts, what have you), hack-and-slash (God of War, Bayonetta, Devil May Cry, stuff like that), open world (inFAMOUS, Prototype, Assassin's Creed, blah blah), and fighting (Mortal Kombat, Super Smash Brothers, The King of Fighters, to name a few). The consoles I own are Playstation 2 Slim, Playstation 3, Playstation Portable, Playstation Vita (yes, I have a Vita), Xbox 360 Slim, Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo Wii U (got that sucker for my 24th birthday!!), a Nintendo 64 (gifted to me by an old friend), and TWO Sega Saturns (one American and one Japanese, both gifted to me by another old friend).
As of Ojamajo Doremi Diamond and Pearl Magic Dimension, all of my stories are dedicated to my father, who passed away in May of 2008. He was my first critic when I was starting out in the writing biz, helping me grow as a writer, and so I thought it fitting to dedicate my stories to him.
I am also a member of Youtube, under the name TimeFireProductions if you want to check out my stuff. I don't have a set thing for what I record, but I do a lot of Crash Bash matches with my friend Jeremy, and even had a co-op Let's Play of [PROTOTYPE] going with him until I lost the second half of the footage when my computer went down. I tend to be loud and rage at certain things in games, but that's just me.
For the past seven or so years (ever since I got hooked on Ojamajo Doremi, basically), I've been friends and penpals with fellow author MeganePurinko, formerly known as YukiShinoya444. We've written quite a few stories together, so if you want to know what we've written, here you go:
Completed Co-Op Projects
Ojamajo Doremi Diamond and Pearl: Secret of the Water Princess: The first Diamond & Pearl movie. On the day of the Water Princess Festival, Nick and the Ojamajos happen upon an ancient legend pertaining to the princess herself. When they learn that the forces of evil are moving through time to find her, the Ojamajos must pursue and stop the evil with the help of a very special witch apprentice...
Ojamajo Doremi Diamond and Pearl: Journey of the Battle Frontier: The second Diamond & Pearl movie. When the Ojamajos are separated in the Majokai, Nick must fight his way through the Battle Frontier Road, home to the greatest fighters that witch-kind has ever known, in order to reunite with his friends and stop a powerful evil force... Definitely one of the most epic stories I've ever written (or co-written), and DEFINTELY the longest, clocking in at 444 pages and 121,722 words (this includes The Lost Battles). Yuki-chan still needs to post this, since she said she would. I may eventually go ahead and do it myself...
Ojamajo Doremi Breakaway: The Subspace Emissary: The first chapter in the Breakaway movie series. Twenty years into the future, Nick and Yuki are fighting a losing battle against the Subspace Army, which has almost completely taken over the world. With no other course of action, Nick and Yuki recruit their past selves to help, hoping to turn the tide of the war once and for all...
Ojamajo Doremi Diamond and Pearl Magic Dimension: Yukizora no Tomodachi: The Diamond and Pearl Magic Dimension movie. Two girls fell from a passing comet during a harsh snowstorm. Why did they attract the attention of the evil Gaul the Ape King? Why is the queen so concerned about them? And why do they both have strong magical powers? It's a mystery that will take the Ojamajos to the farthest reaches of Misora and beyond to protect Hinata and Akari from those who would use them for dark purposes...
Doerai: The Face of Betrayal: This is a story of betrayal upon the very foundation of life. When Momoko is brutally murdered by an unknown assailant, Nick and his friends face the questions of a dark curse and an adventure that many could not comprehend in a dark world with a mystery to be solved...
Doerai: Dawn of the Darkness: Sequel to Doerai: The Face of Betrayal. In the end, there is only a new beginning. Life has been stable since Nick and his friends defeated Doerai, the dark prophet. But when they get knocked into a dark future where Doerai has apparently returned from the grave, Nick must make impossible choices if he wishes to survive. Every story has a beginning, and every story has an end. But this story isn't over yet... Posted on Yuki-chan's account.
Ojamajo Doremi Diamond and Pearl Magic Dimension: Together At the End of the Dream: The final chapter of Ojamajo Doremi Diamond and Pearl Magic Dimension. When news of Malefor's unlikely return reaches Yuki's ears, she sets out to find Hinata and Akari and ask for their assistance. But in order for Nick and the Ojamajos to gain the power to defeat Malefor once and for all, they must seek out the Sisters of Fate...
Ojamajo Doremi Breakaway: Memories of Nobody: The second chapter in the Breakaway movie series. A strange girl has arrived in Misora, bearing very interesting magical powers that pique Saiki Shidoosha's attention. And it comes to light that this odd girl may be the "Memory Rosary", a special person that the Delegates of Darkness are after. It falls to Nick and Yuki to protect Senna not only from their mortal enemies, but an enemy that is far closer than even Nick would have expected...
Journey of the Battle Frontier: The Lost Battles: This is pretty much a series of add-ons to the original epic adventure. The new additions include fights with five new Frontier Brains (the original seven Frontier Brains are based on the ones from Pokemon Emerald, and the five new Frontier Brains introduced in The Lost Battles are based on the ones from Pokemon Platinum), a new battle with Sachie, and a few other things I might feel like adding. Yuki-chan has also added a few things of her own.
Ojamajo Doremi Worldwide: Lost on Crystal Island: Putting the world back together may seem like a lot of trouble, but it's really all in a day's work for world travelers Nick and Sasami. However, on their way to the deserts of Shamar, Nick, Yuki, Hazuki, and Sasami are shot down by Majotourbillon's air forces, landing on a strange island that can't be found on any maps. Knowing that they're hopelessly lost, the quartet decide to explore the island. Little do they know that Majotourbillon has her own designs on this mysterious island, and there's a girl here who may know the secrets of the island and why the dark witch wants to get her greasy hands on the island's power...
Ojamajo Doremi Breakaway: The Final Frontier: The third chapter in the Breakaway movie series. With Nick and Yuki's weddings on the horizon, the splintered remains of the Delegates of Darkness come together to launch one final assault on the city of Misora, bringing something that never should have appeared in this world screaming to the surface: Abel's Ark. Can our favorite siblings find a way to stop Abel's Ark before it destroys everything they've fought to protect for so many years? It's entirely possible that they can pull it off, but this time around, it may involve a great sacrifice on Yuki's part, one that may shatter Nick's life completely...

Follow their lives as Hinata and Akari meet, become friends, and fight for their lives through an ancient kingdom that plays a part in their own destinies...
Ojamajo Doremi Breakaway: Friend's Requiem: The fourth chapter in the Breakaway movie series. Takes place after Ojamajo Doremi Breakaway: The Final Frontier. With things put right in the future again, we now take a look a few years later. Mana, Sakura, and Satoshi are all grown up now, but when their mothers fall ill, and the fathers are out on their own errands, the two daughters and the prodigical son must team up to find the one thing that can cure their ailing mothers. The journey won’t be easy, though, as the cure is said to hide in the mountains, where a mysterious force lies in wait... Little do they know that all three of them are pawns in a meticulously calculated plot to resurrect an ancient evil overlord thought to have been lost to the ravages of time...
Current Co-op Project
Ojamajo Doremi Breakaway: The Lost Colors: The fifth chapter in the Breakaway movie series and the first part of the "Colors" trilogy of Breakaway movies. It all started with a nightmare. Nick and Yuki are still settling back into their "normal" lives, but little do they realize that their fragile peace is about to be shattered. When Yuki began to have disturbing nightmares that shatters her faith in her boyfriend, she and Nick must take a journey through the furthest reaches of the Majokai to uncover what is going on and put an end to the schemings of a fallen god. Yuki's fears have been prodded, Nick's confidence has been shaken, and the ultimate nightmare is about to begin... (Status: Act 1: Rendezvous in a Dark Place, is done and posted on the site. Act 2: Song of the Younger World, is done and posted on the site. Act 3: Something in the Walls, is in progress and on hiatus. Must suck for Yuki-chan to be stuck in college...)
Future Co-Op Project(s)
Ojamajo Doremi Tomo-DACHI: Tragedy of the Cursed Duet: A long time ago, there was a peaceful village. The Keikaishi siblings, Chiaki and Chiyuki, played songs for the villagers until a mysterious illness spread throughout the village. Believing the Keikaishi siblings to be responsible, the villagers rounded up and executed Chiyuki... right in front of Chiaki. It was believed that Chiaki then put a curse on the village and all who would enter there. Many years later, Nick Kelly spots Saiki Shidoosha reading a book about this legend. Curious about what Saiki seems to know, Nick decides to investigate. But after running into a childhood friend of his, everything goes straight to hell when Chiaki's curse begins to take over Misora. With the city's children sick and getting worse, Nick, Yuki, and Saiki must spring into action to quell Chiaki's raging spirit before it's too late for anyone to be saved... (Status: This is an idea Yuki-chan just came up with, and I basically approved of it almost instantly. This one will be on the queue until The Lost Colors is finished, after which Yuki-chan and I might either write this or Endless Possibility.)
Secret of the Water Princess: The Final Cut: Long ago, there was a princess from the Water Kingdom of Soleanna. She fell in love with a prince from the neighboring Kingdom of Light, but the fated lovers were torn apart by the chaos of war that had ravaged the two kingdoms for twenty years. It is said that the spirit of the water princess still drifts through the afterlife, searching for her lost love... Present day, the Ojamajos are preparing for the Water Princess Festival that honors the old legend. But when an extremely strong dark witch attacks the festival grounds, the Ojamajos are only able to repel the assault with the help of a very strange witch apprentice. With Yuki Shinoya's help, the Ojamajos will travel through time to stop Majoaku from rewriting history and hopefully find the person Yuki has been searching for... (Status: Yes, for Diamond & Pearl: The Final Cut, Yuki-chan and I will be co-writing a remixed version of our very first joint effort!! This one won't be starting until the summer for two reasons: 1) I want to get to at least the halfway point of Final Cut by then, since this can take place anytime between episodes 25 and 35, and 2) it'll be easier for both of us to write stuff when Yuki-chan isn't stuck in college for the summer.)
Ojamajo Doremi Breakaway: Endless Possibility: The seventh chapter in the Breakaway movie series. In a movie-length retelling of the first season, Nick Kelly and Yuki Shinoya are siblings who have suffered much abuse by their own father, due to the fact that their mother is having an affair with someone. After one abuse too many, Nick is fed up, and decides to take his sister and break away from their old life, into a life where all they have is each other. However, the daily routine is about to be rattled and shaken up in this port town of Misora, Japan. Their father isn’t happy about his kids leaving the roost, and he will do anything to put them in line, even if it means attempting to resurrect an ancient evil to do the job for him... (Status: I love Breakaway too much to let it stop. This one will be on the queue until The Lost Colors is finished, after which Yuki-chan and I might either write this or Tragedy of the Cursed Duet.)
About My Original Characters
I have quite a few original characters. And this is the section where I'm going to talk all about them. The characters on this list are separated by what story they first appear in, with multi-story info where it's needed. Okay? Okay. Here we go!
Ojamajo Doremi Diamond & Pearl
Nick Kelly: Again, he is not me, though he's a lot like me. Nick is often very rough and tumble, but is dedicated to his friends and won't let anyone push them around. Nick moved from America to Japan during the middle of Ojamajo Doremi Sharp (as revealed in my story Ojamajo Doremi Cosmic Travelers) and joined the group, initially as a "magical slave" as suggested by Aiko (talk to MeganePurinko if you want details, since she came up with the idea), though in the final battle with the FLAT4, he took a severe hit for the girls and proved himself worthy. Nick has been on the team ever since. During the climax of Motto!, when Majotourbillon possessed Momoko, Nick surprised the girls by transforming for the very first time and forcing Majotourbillon out of Momoko's body. Nick is strong-willed and very dependable, but tends to be sort of a spotlight hogger. Despite his hair-trigger temper, Nick is really a very friendly person and would never hurt someone unless they hurt him first. Nick's biggest weakness is his impatience. Most of the time, he'll jump headfirst into a situation without a second thought, and this usually (usually) leads to trouble for the Ojamajos. Nick's greatest fear is loneliness, since he treasures the friendships he is able to make. Since Nick is quite close to all of the Ojamajos, Aiko often calls him a "playboy", though Nick says that the proper term is "charisma". Fami has often described Nick as someone "easy to fall in love with". Nick may seem too proud to display emotion sometimes, but he really has trouble displaying what he's really feeling since he doesn't want his friends to worry about him. Also (this applies to all stories with the two of them), Nick is the only one who is allowed to call Moriko Takahashi by the moniker "Mori-chan". No one really knows why, but Akemi Suzuki believes it's because Moriko really likes Nick... In any series of mine, when under extreme emotional stress or by absorbing the powers of the seven Majokai Crystals, Nick can also attain what I call a "super transformation" where he gains spiky golden hair, glowing red eyes, and insane amounts of magical power. Though this may seem like a Super Saiyan, I consider this transformation more analogous (hope I spelled that right) to Sonic's transformation into Super Sonic. Nick has shoulder-length spiky brown hair and brown eyes, and his usual attire is a blue t-shirt with a comet emblem, a pair of jean shorts, and K-Swiss shoes (PLUG!!). Nick's Ojamajo color is emerald green. His birthday is March 16th, like my own. He is voiced by Takeshi Kusao in Japanese, and Howard Drossin in English. As of Ojamajo Doremi Color Calamity, Nick is voiced by Kosuke Toriumi in Japanese, and Troy Baker in English.
Haruka Reisei: A sweet girl from the native lands of Japan, Haruka is known for her "slow-and-steady-wins-the-race" approach to a situation. Haruka is very intuitive, and immensely trustful, never wishing to betray that which is dear to her. Haruka first appeared halfway through Ojamajo Doremi Diamond and Pearl and helped the Ojamajos fight off Erika's assault on the high school, leading to her being accepted onto the team. Haruka's biggest weakness is that sometimes, she can be too trusting, even towards former enemies that have decided to "change their ways". Erika has hinted that she and Haruka share a connection of sorts, but what exactly that connection could be is unclear. Haruka gradually develops a close relationship with Ichiyou that eventually turns into love. As of Ojamajo Doremi Diamond and Pearl Magic Dimension, Haruka and Ichiyou are officially a couple when they leave Misora to travel the world. In Ojamajo Doremi Breakaway, Haruka is similar to her D&P self, though she's much closer to Ichiyou. She is one of the few who knows about the Delegates of Darkness from the start of the story. In Ojamajo Doremi Chronicles: Message of the Shooting Star, Haruka is actually quite shy, and has a small crush on Nick, but will stand up for those she cares for without hesitation. She also knows many wind-based combat techniques. Haruka has long brown hair (which is normally tied into two ponytails, though Haruka likes to experiment with different hairstyles) and strawberry pink eyes, and her usual attire is a sky blue tank top and yellow Capri shorts with matching sandals. Haruka's Ojamajo color is aquamarine. Her birthday is September 23rd. She is voiced by Yui Horie in Japanese, and Julie Maddalena in English. As of Ojamajo Doremi Color Calamity, Haruka is voiced by Aya Hisakawa in Japanese, and Megan Hollingshead in English.
Ichiyou Kitakaze: Often called "Leaf", though Saiki is the only one who calls her by her real name. Ichiyou is an old friend of Nick's, and a very resourceful and reliable girl to have as a friend. Ichiyou posesses otherworldly persistence, and will not stray from her task once she's set to it, no matter who tries to stand in her way. This especially persists with her promise that Nick would eventually marry her, which stems from an incident when Nick protected her from a pack of bullies when they were younger. Ichiyou's biggest weakness is that she prefers to get things done right away, to heck with the big picture, and this can cause some of the "best-laid plans of mice and men", so to say, to fall apart quickly. Ichiyou gradually develops a close relationship with Haruka that eventually turns into love. As of Ojamajo Doremi Diamond and Pearl Magic Dimension, Haruka and Ichiyou are officially a couple when they leave Misora to travel the world. In Ojamajo Doremi Breakaway, Ichiyou is still Nick's childhood friend, though she doesn't bug him about the promise as much. Nick calls her at least once a day since thanks to the Kitakaze family's busy schedule, they can't see each other too often. In Ojamajo Doremi Chronicles: Message of the Shooting Star, Ichiyou is much the same as her other incarnations, though, like Saiki, she's terrified of being lonely. She also knows many nature-based combat techniques. Ichiyou has long, wavy brown hair and green eyes, and her usual attire is a light purple vest with a blue jacket, along with an orange and red skirt, and a cap with a Pokeball symbol on it. Ichiyou's Ojamajo color is silver. Her birthday is May 2nd. She is voiced by Ai Maeda in Japanese, and Lia Sargent in English. As of Ojamajo Doremi Color Calamity, Ichiyou is voiced by Satomi Arai in Japanese, and Laura Bailey in English.
Ojamajo Doremi Diamond & Pearl: The Final Cut
Kirino Kelly: Nick's younger sister, given a major starring role in The Final Cut. Kirino is much like Nick, being quite impatient and stubborn, though not to the extent of her brother. Kirino is very spirited and energetic, but knows when to be mature and reliable. Kirino often overanalyzes situations, though this is due to her aspirations of becoming a detective when she grows up. She often teases Nick about silly things, but in the end, Kirino genuinely cares for her big brother and will stand up for him without hesitation. Whenever Nick and Momoko go out on a date, Kirino is always helping Nick prepare, something that sometimes confuses him. Kirino is a strong believer in making people happy, and will often hug people for no apparent reason, saying that she felt like they needed a hug. Kirino is also a very talented artist, and will often spend most of her free time sitting at her art desk and drawing whatever pops into her head. In fact, during the opening and ending sequences, when Kirino shows up, she will always show a picture she drew of an event related to the day's episode. Kirino first became an Ojamajo after finding her way to Misora, having just returned from a vacation to Hawaii and not knowing what had happened to her parents. After showing courage during the Ojamajos' latest battle with Erika, Kirino was given a Jewel Tap by Majorin. Kirino has long, waist-length orange-brown hair and neon blue eyes, and her usual attire is a light blue shirt and milky white shorts. Her Ojamajo color is bronze. Her birthday is March 25th. She is voiced by Ayana Taketatsu in Japanese, and Cassandra Lee in English.
Ojamajo Doremi Diamond & Pearl Magic Dimension
Riiko Izawa: Not to be confused with the like-titled star of Absolute Boyfriend, Riiko is a sweetheart, pure and simple. Though she may be more shy than even Hazuki, Riiko knows how to take care of herself. Riiko tries her best to make friends with anyone she meets, no matter who they might be, knowing that somewhere inside is a good person. Despite her shyness, Riiko is quite proficient in martial arts, and will not hesitiate to fight when she needs to. Riiko is often convinced to try out lots of designer-brand outfits by Yumi, so you could say that Riiko is the fashion girl of Ojamajo Doremi (though reluctantly). In the anime version of Diamond and Pearl Magic Dimension, she develops feelings for Nick, but is hindered by past relationship troubles. In Ojamajo Doremi Breakaway, Riiko is not as shy as she was in Magic Dimension, and she is very protective of Yuki. Riiko is also very popular at Umi no Hoshi High School. In Ojamajo Doremi Chronicles: Message of the Shooting Star, Riiko is quite close to Yumi, exhibiting a relationship similar to that of Haruka and Ichiyou. She also knows many telepathy-based combat techniques. Riiko has brown hair that is often tied into a single ponytail and silver eyes, and her usual attire is a black shirt and blue skirt. Riiko's Ojamajo color is brown. Her birthday is July 17th. She is voiced by Reina Tanaka in Japanese, and Michelle Ruff in English. As of Ojamajo Doremi Color Calamity, Riiko is voiced by Ai Orikasa in Japanese, and Colleen O'Shaughnessey in English.
Yumi Hitoyama: Resident pop-star extraordinare, Yumi is best known around Japan for collaborations with famous J-pop singer Misato Aki. In fact, it was Yumi's cover of "Kuchibiru Daydream" that caused her and the Ojamajos to meet. Yumi is quite stubborn and very determined to get what she wants by whatever means necessary, so she and Nick share quite a nice friendship, seeing as they both have quite a bit in common. Yumi has very little tolerance for evil, often going out of her way to attack a villain without thinking things through. Yumi is almost always smiling, and does her best to care about people's feelings. Yumi's mother was a former idol herself, and this conflicted with Yumi's dreams of becoming just like her mother. Thankfully, Yumi and her mother have come to terms with their shared dream. Yumi is a fashionista, and often forces Riiko to try on new clothes that she special orders. In Ojamajo Doremi Breakaway, Yumi is more of an international idol than a Japanese idol. Her reason for being an idol in this story was due to the struggles of a fellow idol. Yumi wished to ease her friend's troubles, so she became an idol herself to support her friend. In Ojamajo Doremi Chronicles: Message of the Shooting Star, Yumi is quite close to Riiko, and has collaborated with Onpu on a lot of songs. She also knows many music-based combat techniques. Yumi has long blonde hair tied into two ponytails and blue eyes, and her usual attire is a pink jacket with a heart emblem, red skirt and black flip-flops. Yumi is always seen with her microphone. Yumi's Ojamajo color is strawberry. Her birthday is November 3rd. She is voiced by Koharu Kusumi in Japanese, and Julie Ann Taylor in English. As of Ojamajo Doremi Color Calamity, Yumi is voiced by Akemi Okamura in Japanese, and Jennifer Hale in English.
Hinata: Part of Ojamajo Doremi Diamond and Pearl Magic Dimension. She appears in Yukizora no Tomodachi, Together At the End of the Dream, and Radiant Snow: Hinata and Akari's Story. Despite her name meaning "sun", she loves playing around in the snow. As an elemental, she commands the power of snow, and as such can be a force to be reckoned with when she's angry. Hinata is usually quite cheerful and happy, and she absolutely ADORES Yuki. She is also childhood friends with Akari, and as such is fiercely protective of her. She also appears to have a crush on Nick. She is voiced by Ami Onuki in Japanese, and Laura Bailey in English. As of the Radiant Snow Chronicles, Hinata will still be voiced by Ami Onuki in Japanese, but will be voiced by Heather Hogan in English.
Doerai: The Face of Betrayal
Doerai: An ancient dark prophet who is the main antagonist of the two Doerai stories. Though Doerai's history is not explained in the story, I'll tell you here because that's how nice I am. Thousands of years ago, Doerai was once a powerful prophet for an ancient civilization who performed research for the betterment of his people. One day, when a terrible darkness invaded the land, the prophet, who did not yet have a spoken name, made a bold move by taking the darkness into himself, though the darkness eventually spread through his entire body, corrupting him absolutely. By this time, he took the name Doerai and, according to legend, destroyed the ancient civilization. In the present time, Doerai emerged when he'd heard of the Ojamajos and the powers they possessed, he realized that they would be a signifcant stumbling block to his plans of taking over the world he once lived in. To this end, he sent his lackeys to slaughter Nick's girlfriend Momoko in the hopes that it would destroy Nick's fighting spirit. Though this plan was successful, there was one little detail Doerai didn't count on: Akemi Suzuki. Doerai is very cocky and self-confident, but when he realizes that he's been backed into a corner, he is not above using every trick in the book and some that aren't to defeat his opposers. He also has something to do with Torikki's curse in Dawn of the Darkness, but if you want to know what that is, read the story. He is voiced by Chikao Otsuka in Japanese, and Mike Pollock in English.
Melissa: Doerai's main lackey. Seen in Doerai: The Face of Betrayal. Melissa is very cold and calculating, as well as very psychotic and devious. She is the main perpetrator of the curse that continues to claim the lives of the Ojamajos. She uses a special ruby crystal to inflict whoever she can find with the curse. She can release her full power to transform into a massive monstrosity known as Omega Metempsychosis, though she was still defeated by Nick when he drew strength from the promises he had made to Momoko and Akemi. While the remaining four Ojamajos were exploring Doerai's dimension, Melissa became too overconfident in her abilities and was swiftly struck down by Yuki. She is voiced by Hiromi Tsuru in Japanese and Tiffany Volmer in English.
Doerai: Dawn of the Darkness
Utau Suzuki: Utau is Nick and Akemi's daughter in the future that Nick and the girls wind up in, seen in Doerai: Dawn of the Darkness. Utau is very hyper for her age, and loves to sing. She's usually always found in her stage dress, and she seems to be close friends with Hitomi. She is not above attempting to sacrifice herself to keep her parents safe, as seen in the story. She is voiced by Yuko Minaguchui in Japanese, and Elise Baughman in English.
Ojamajo Doremi Breakaway
Nick Kelly: The character of Nick is different enough in Breakaway that I thought he deserved his own entry. In Breakaway, Nick is the older brother of Yuki Shinoya, and is still impatient like most of his incarnations, but in this story, he dials down his impatience so he can take better care of his sister. Nick was the one who coined "Nankurunaisa", the family's "magic word". Though still impatient and a spotlight hogger, Nick realizes that Yuki relies on him to provide guidance and support as she grows up, and was the one who helped her out when their father started lashing out at them. Nick will often state that, even though he is pretty much head-over-heels for Momoko, he considers Yuki the most precious person in his life, and will not hesitate to throw himself into dangerous and life-threatening situations just to protect her. As revealed in Ojamajo Doremi Breakaway re:Connect, Nick used to work at his own MAHO-dou alongside Yuki, known as the Twin Bells MAHO-dou. As in other incarnations, Nick is voiced by Takeshi Kusao in Japanese, and Howard Drossin in English. As of Ojamajo Doremi Breakaway: The Lost Colors, Nick is voiced by Kosuke Toriumi in Japanese, and Troy Baker in English.
Gargos: Gargos is an elite member of the Delegates of Darkness, and since he was having an affair with Nick and Yuki's mother, he is directly responsible for the events that take place over the course of the story. Gargos, like Nick, is very stubborn, and is also loyal to his cause. He apparently cannot stand his fellow partner Black Waltz Three due to an incident from Gargos' past. He is voiced by Norio Wakamoto in Japanese, and Daemon Clarke in English.
Black Waltz Three: His name is often shortened to just "Waltz". Truly a mystery, Black Waltz Three, like Gargos, is an elite member of the Delegates of Darkness. Waltz is generally a psychopath, though he mostly stays quite calm, even when being threatened by Gargos or Nick and Yuki. Gargos cannot stand Waltz, a fact which Waltz likes to take advantage of. Under his sneering and ice-cold persona, Waltz truly wishes to be useful to the Delegates of Darkness, due to a past event in his life (to be revealed soon). He is voiced by Ryusei Nakao in Japanese, and Eddie Frierson in English.
Sakura: Part of the Breakaway movie series. Sakura is Nick and Momoko's daughter from the future, first introduced in Ojamajo Doremi Breakaway: The Subspace Emissary. Like her father, she is very impatient, and is very adventurous and caring, like her mother. Sakura will only join a fight if she absolutely has to, but when she does, she will not hold anything back. Sakura also wishes to be as strong as her father, due to the fact that a lot of people believe her to be weak, due to the fact that she will avoid a fight unless she absolutely needs to fight. Her Ojamajo color is quartz. She is voiced by Aya Hisakawa in Japanese, and Stephanie Sheh in English. As of Ojamajo Doremi Breakaway: The Lost Colors, Sakura is voiced by Minori Chihara in Japanese, and Michelle Ruff in English.
Julie Makimoto: Appears in Ojamajo Doremi Breakaway: The Subspace Emissary, and set to appear in Ojamajo Doremi Breakaway: The Lost Colors. In the dark future, she met Nick not too long after Momoko had died, and when she began to hang out with him, future Nick slowly but surely returned to his original self. Julie is a firm believer that friendships need to be treasured. Julie can be a bit scatter-brained at times, and future Nick notes that she tends to babble on and on about random things, but her heart is always in the right place. Julie cares quite deeply for the people she is close to, and will go to incredibly dangerous lengths just for her friends. She tends to scream quite loudly to warn Nick of impending danger. She is voiced by Riza Mizuno in Japanese, and Katie Griffin in English.
Ojamajo Doremi Worldwide
Sasami Kawai: Named after an old friend of Nick's, she lost her memory after Nick fell from space when fighting Majotourbillon, and now she is journeying with Nick across the world in hopes of retrieving her lost memories. Sasami is very bubbly and optimistic, and will never let even the worst of situations get her down. She loves traveling to exotic places, as can be seen by her extreme sense of wonder whenever she and Nick arrive on a new continent. She appears to have a bit of a crush on Nick, as described in the movie by her feeling really happy whenever she's close to Nick. She is voiced by Chisa Yokoyama in Japanese, and Alison Viktorin in English. As of Ojamajo Doremi Color Calamity, Sasami is voiced by Mana Ogawa in Japanese, and Sherry Lynn in English.
Shugo Chara: The X Conspiracy
Nick Kelly: Yes, he's still got the same name. Shut up. In the Shugo Chara universe, Nick is about one or two years younger than he is in Ojamajo Doremi, and his backstory is a little different. Nick is still impatient and impulsive, but not very assertive. This is due in part to a recent incident with his parents that he doesn't like to talk about around other people. (So we never really find out what the incident was. Or will we?) His wish to be assertive enough to speak out against these atrocities resulted in the birth of his first Guardian Character, Yuki. It was a few weeks after gaining his Guardian Character that Nick met Amu and the rest of the Guardians, and eventually joined up with them. Nick considers Amu his best friend, and often helps her sort out her feelings. Yaya is like a little sister to Nick, and the two can often be seen buying sweets together. Nick considers Tadase a big brother of sorts, helping out around the Royal Garden and instantly shutting up whoever even tries to mention the p-word. Nick and Nagihiko are good friends, though Rima doesn't seem to like that. Despite said jealousy, Nick and Rima are also quite close, and Nick often gets a genuine laugh from Rima's silly stunts. Like Amu, Nick has three Guardian Characters. (Will he get a fourth as well? Only time knows...) The second character is Fujino, and the third character is Saya. Nick's position in the Guardians is the Diamond Chair. Nick is still voiced by Takeshi Kusao in Japan, and Howard Drossin in America.
Yuki: The first of Nick's Guardian Characters. She was born when Nick wished to gain the assertiveness to speak out against the atrocities he was going through. Yuki is an all-around sweet girl who somehow always manages to stay on peoples' good sides no matter what she says. She also seems to show a bit of a rivalry with Yoru... Yuki has long silver hair and golden eyes, and she wears a school uniform with a plaid shirt. When Yuki does a Character Change, Nick becomes quite assertive and stubborn. Eventually, Yuki gains the ability to Character Transform with Nick into Snow Dragon. Snow Dragon Nick's attacks are Snow Claw, where he slashes at the enemy with frozen hands, and Blizzard Burst, where he creates a mass of snow, freezes it, and launches it at his target. Yuki is voiced by Kurumi Mamiya in Japan, and Tracey Hoyt in America.
Fujino: The second of Nick's Guardian Characters. Fujino was born when Nick wished his mother would pay more attention to him, since Mrs. Kelly's job takes her all around the world. Fujino is very straightforward with her feelings, and if there's someone she really likes (or doesn't like), she'll make sure they know that fact. Fujino has short purple hair and blue eyes, and wears a more petite, blue version of Suu's outfit. When Fujino does a Character Change, Nick gets really affectionate, especially around Amu. Eventually, Fujino can Character Transform with Nick into Amethyst Bell. Amethyst Bell Nick's attacks are Sonic Wave, where he charges the enemy at supersonic speeds and strikes with that same velocity, and Shine Ring, where he unleashes a ring of energy at the target. Fujino is voiced by Michie Tomizawa in Japan, and Katie Griffin in America.
Saya: The third of Nick's Guardian Characters. Saya was born when Nick wished his father would appreciate his mother more. Saya is very shy and timid, but is dedicated to the ones she likes. Saya often shows concern for Nick when he gets into a dangerous situation. Saya has black hair, black eyes, and wears a silver kimono. When Saya does a Character Change, Nick becomes much more athletic and honest. It's also revealed that Nick gains sword-wielding talents in this Character Change. Eventually, Saya can Character Transform with Nick into Hurricane Samurai. Hurricane Samurai Nick's attacks are Tempest Blade, where he performs a vicious spinning attack with his dual swords, and Raptor Strike, where he leaps three times, striking with different blades on each jump. Saya is voiced by Aya Hisakawa in Japan, and Karen Bernstein in America.
Haruka Rose: Haruka returns with a bit of a different name. In the Shugo Chara universe, Haruka is very down-to-earth, but does not overdo it, as she cherishes her friends more than anything else in the world. As a kid, Haruka always dreamed of going to exotic, far-off places. The problem was, with her parents' conflicting lives, it was hard to her to go places, so she was almost always cooped up in her house. When she yearned for some freedom, she received her Guardian Character, Tsuki. Haruka likes Nick, but she won't admit it to anyone. Haruka is voiced by Taeko Kawata in Japan, and Jennifer Doullard in America.
Tsuki: Haruka's Guardian Character. Tsuki is cute and optimistic, and can be fascinated by even the most mundane or boring of things, and this sometimes embarasses Haruka. Tsuki has blue hair, green eyes, and wears a flight attendant's uniform. When Tsuki does a Character Change, Haruka becomes cheerful and giggly, which is a contrast to her normally far-away, down-to-earth personality. Though Nick has said that he likes Haruka more when she's happy, she tries not to Character Change while she's with him, wanting him to be friends with the real her and trying to be happy for his sake. Tsuki can Character Transform with Haruka into Soaring Rose. Soaring Rose Haruka's attacks are Petal Dance, which attacks the enemy with a storm of sharp rose petals, and Lovely Tempest, in which she flaps her wings to send the target into the air, and then uses a storm of roses to attack. Tsuki is voiced by Yui Horie in Japan, and Julie Maddalena in America.
W.I.T.C.H.: In World's End
Mina Vandom: (Not the same Mina from Key to Her Heart.) The youngest of the three keyblade apprentices. She is in no way related to Will. Or is she...? Mina's heart was fractured a while ago for unknown reasons, but it was recently repaired. She then came to the Land of Departure to live and train under Master Eraqus alongside Maylin and Haruka. Mina is strong-willed and persistent, but does not want to be treated like a child, despite being the youngest of the trio. In the heat of battle, she utilizes agility and swiftness to keep the Unversed on their toes. She commands the Energybreaker keyblade in battle. Mina is voiced by Kelly Stables in America, and Hoko Kuwashima in Japan
Maylin Rae: (Not the same Maylin from Key to Her Heart.) The "middle sister" of the three keyblade apprentices and the self-appointed leader of the trio. Maylin is very feisty and hyperactive, but beneath it all she just wants friends. Having been shunned most of her life due to her ability to wield the keyblade, Maylin was happy to call the Land of Departure home and train under Master Eraqus. She and Haruka are in love with each other. In the heat of battle, Maylin prefers to use her mastery of magic to deal deadly blows to her enemies, but she is not above getting up close and personal when the situation calls for it. She commands the Wizardweaver keyblade in battle. She is voiced by Julie Maddalena in America, and Yukana Nogami in Japan.
Haruka Rose: (Not the same Haruka from Key to Her Heart.) The oldest of the three keyblade apprentices. Haruka is laid-back, gentle, and very dedicated to her work with the keyblade. When she was young, her parents were killed by a keyblade wielder who had fallen to the darkness. Believing that the power of the keyblade should be used for good and not evil, she eventually became a keyblade wielder herself and was sent to the Land of Departure to train under Master Eraqus. She and Maylin are in love with each other. In the heat of battle, Haruka relies on her sizable strength and vast array of offensive attacks to see her through a tough battle. She commands the Hearthealer keyblade in battle. She is voiced by Jennifer Doullard in America, and Tomoko Kawakami in Japan.
Sailor Moon SuperS: The Dark Crystal Trilogy
Nick Kelly/Sailor Mini Saturn: Age 14. Holy wow, I'm actually writing for Sailor Moon again. For you readers of my rather HORRENDOUS early stories (at least horrendous compared to how I write now), Sailor Mini Saturn (or "Chibi Saturn", for you Japanese lovers), was the Sailor Senshi alter-ego of my first original character way back in the day. I didn't really have a backstory to him back then, but now I do, after thinking for a good while. Nick appears sporadically during the second series (Sailor Moon R), always in his Senshi form and saving the other Senshi in times of big crisis, though he doesn't go to Crystal Tokyo for the battle with Wizeman. As of Sailor Moon S, we're introduced to his civilian self. He has quite the crush on Ami, something Makoto likes to tease him about. He considers Usagi his big sister, as his parents were never able to have another kid, and Nick usually goes to Usagi for advice, help, or if he just wants to talk. Nick, as a normal boy, is very headstrong and courageous. Like many of Nick's recent incarnations, he is also very impatient, this trait usually leading the Senshi into trouble. As Sailor Chibi Saturn, Nick is the Soldier of Sound and Instinct, fighting with sound and music-based attacks. His first transformation phrase is "Saturn Star Power, Make Up!!" (R and S), and in this form, his attacks are Saturn Music Ring, where he summons a large sound wave to trap the enemy, and Saturn Sound Barrage, where he slams his hand into the ground and beams of energy fly outwards to hit any targets in a medium range. His second transformation phrase is "Saturn Crystal Power, Make Up!!" (SuperS, and yes, I know that's Hotaru's transformation phrase in Stars, but I've never seen Stars. DUB IT, SOMEONE!!!), and his attack is Saturn Sonic Scream, where he generates a large quantity of sonic waves and fires them at the target as a sort-of beam. This attack can actually outright destroy weaker enemies. During a mishap with the Amazoness Quartet, Nick gains a power similar to Ami's Mercury Aqua Mirage from the SuperS special. This power is called Saturn Sonic Wave Blast, in which he fires off multiple spheres of sonic energy that can track the target. In my first Sailor Moon story (the only one that was actually Sailor Moon, huh!!), Nick and Usagi combine their powers to create the super-powerful Moon Sonic Wave Meditation attack, where Nick and Usagi basically combine the Saturn Sonic Wave Blast and Moon Gorgeous Meditation attacks into one super-powerful attack. Nick is voiced by Takeshi Kusao in Japan, and Howard Drossin (DiC dub) and Troy Baker (Cloverway dub) in English.
And, that's pretty much it for me for now. As always, when new ideas come up, they'll be posted here.
Also of note: if anyone would like to use my characters in their stories, just send me a PM with which of my characters you'd like to use and why you'd like to use them. I'll usually approve of it, but the only stipulation is that you don't make my characters look bad.
Ten freakin' years. WOW.
Time to set sail,
