Ran is part of my mercenaries story that I have in mind since 2016.

Takes place in an alternative universe:
Because of a silvery substance, some teenagers and young adults from all over the world gain inhuman skills and therefore are chosen by an organization to become mercenaries to solve the world's conflicts while dealing with their personal problems. However, this organization recruits for its own purposes and motivations.

Kind: Her kindness is taken for weakness but Ran becomes more hardened, harsh, and ruthless through the story after experiencing the damages of the war, conflicts, death etc.

Empathic: She thinks with her heart and at first it was a problem during missions because she couldn't pull the trigger. As I said, she will become more heartless.

Huge Pacifist: Which is funny because her duty is to kill people but she always tries to not use violence but diplomacy. But she got used to violence. She understood that in this world, all is not rosy - and she must kill people if she doesn't want to be killed.

Confused: Ran is always lost and disturbed. Her mind is often like "Wait, what?! What the f?" 24/7.

Relatable: She is still a simple teenager that was sent in an unknown world for her which is the mercenaries. So she has teenagers problems like school, self-confidence issues, love problems, trying to find herself, anxiety, etc. That is why she is the most relatable character in the story.

Ran is an only child. She only lives with her parents in the Japanese countryside.
However, she has a distant cousin who lives in Tokyo named Sadaaki. They will meet again and she will learn that he is close with the yakuzas.

Ishana: Ran's best friend. She immediately got along with her when they met; Ishana took Ran under her wing when this one entered the organization. She is way more serious and mature than Ran despite they have the same age. They are each other partner in crime, sister, friend soulmates, you name it.

Nahil: Ran considers him as the big brother she never had. He is always there to advise and to comfort Ran and she helps him a lot too, particularly when he is in his morose hours.

Alejandro: They are not the closest friends but, they get well along together. Ran will always give him a hand and vice-versa. Moreover, Ran, Ishana and Alejandro are stuck together 24/7 since they almost are the same age.

Aasir: In the beginning, she didn't approve of his methods which were turned towards violence so they argued a lot. Now, ironically, personalities changed. However, Ran has a certain respect for him as the eldest.

Jade & Armin: With these two she doesn't have a strong bond, but it doesn't mean that they dislike each other. Jade and Armin are really close, since they are twins, so they always seem distant from the other members. They are self-sufficient together.

Vilja: She was a very close friend for Ran. She saw Vilja as the mom of the group and sometimes she confessed her personal issues to her. But when she knew Vilja's true nature, Ran was mad at her.

Nyree: Ran doesn't like her at ALL. She finds her mean, bitter, and her behaviour is rude, and for what? But she can't deny that Nyree is strong and they need her during missions.

Zahid: Ran was fooled by him and saw him as a saviour - like everyone else - because of the manipulator that he is. She is the one who introduced him to the group without knowing that he is Nahil's big brother and he came to kill him.

Felicia: Ran didn't trust her at first. It's when she knew she was the big sister of Alejandro that she started to chill; she just appreciates her and is a precious ally to her.

Sadaaki: Ran's distant cousin. She likes him more than she thinks. She didn't remember him so she forgets how he was like and what he looks like. She discovered a lovely teasing and sassy cousin. Even though he is annoying and a lost cause, she would have liked to know him before, to grow up with him, and to be with him in her tough moments.

Ga-Ram: Who likes him anyway?

speed & stamina

After having been in contact for a while with the silvery substance, which can transform the body of a person, Ran's stamina and speed are abnormally developed. Which means, of course, she can run fast and for a long time.

  • Speed: Her normal speed is 50 km/h, which is 31 mph, but she can reach up to 60 km/h, which is 37 mph when she is at her maximum speed
  • Stamina: At a slow speed, she can run for 4 days without sleeping and stopping.

Ran only knew the countryside. She was born, raised, and was hoping to die there; her ancestors were farmers, her grandparents were farmers, her parents are farmers. She lived the banalest life of a teenager in high school, between studies, fields, and crushes.

One day, helping her parents in the fields, she found out a little bit of the silvery substance and kept it for herself. After a few months, during the sports festival of her school, she participated in a relay race and her classmates were shocked by how fast she was running. That is why, at the end of the year, the organization came to recruit her because they heard of her skills.

They lied to her, hiding the fact it was to draft her to be a mercenary by saying they were studying on the silvery substance and she will just have to do tests. She wasn't overjoyed by the idea to join them at the base, far away from her family but they promised her it will just take a few months and she and her parents will get a nice sum of money.

When they told her she has to kill people, she almost passes out. Her? The girl who a few weeks was in her beloved countryside cultivating? Has to do headshot kills? "Hell no," that's what she thought. She tried to escape several times but she always gets caught and they kind brainwashed her with good arguments: they threatened to kill her parents and said the targets that she will have to kill are a danger for the world - so she became a mercenary.

After a few years, the squad and she decided they must overthrow the organization while dealing with their problems. From there, Ran will start to change; she will become more and more heartless, vicious, shameless, and she won't have time for bullshits. She will make sure that the work is done by hook or by crook.
The squad will meet Sadaaki in Tokyo when they will try to destroy one of the head offices of the organization in Japan. With the help of yakuzas and his cousin, Ran and the others will have a deal.

Later, she will withdraw into herself when she will learn the death of her parents killed by the organization which will generate the beginning of her suicidal thoughts.
