A sniping prodigy with an abrasive personality. One of the protagonists in Akame ga Kill!
Mine hails from the Western borders of the Empire. While her exact parentage hasn't been revealed, she is known to be of mixed blood between those who live in the empire and the Western tribes outside of it. As such she was often an outcast and target of ridiculing, beatings and general abuse, due to discrimination against the Western tribes. She eventually joined Night Raid with the goal of replacing her current country with a new one that might embrace stronger ties with foreign nations, and hopefully have less discrimination as a result.
She is one of the main characters created by the writer, Takahiro (Majikoi!) and the artist, Tashiro Tetsuya in the Akame Ga Kill manga. She first appears in the first chapter.
Mine possesses a small body and a huge body of pink hair which she usually wears in twin-tailed bunches secured with ribbons. She has an incredibly pink colour-scheme, with pink hair, eyes and usually a pink-dress, albeit one of a much lighter shade than her physical attributes.
Often not an easy person to get along with, Mine can be verbally caustic, condescending and short-tempered. She is also very proud of her prowess with her gun Teigu Pumpkin, to the extent of seeming rather arrogant. Despite this, she does care about her friends, and can offer a supportive word when she needs to.
Mine typically carries out assassination through sniping with her gun Pumpkin. She has demonstrated exceptional focus during this task and is an incredibly accurate shot. She is not limited to sniping however, as she is also a skilled gun fighter, and is particularly nimble.
Alike most members of Night Raid, Mine possesses a "Teigu" one of the Empire's 1000-year old superweapons, in her case a large silver rifle called Pumpkin. This weapon gathers spirit energy and fires it in a concentrated shockwave, thus it isn't dependent on conventional ammunition. Additional parts can be used to adapt the gun to several different functions, including sniping, rapid fire shots and a continuous beam that cuts like a blade. Mine also stores a small monocle-like scope in one of its compartments.
The hidden power of the weapon is that it grows more powerful the greater the danger the user finds them self in. Prior to being used by Mine, Pumpkin was the weapon of Night Raid's leader, Najenda.
