Michiru (ミチル), an agent of Section 3. She was formerly a housewife to a local restaurant owner named Lebanon, who left him and their son Norio, after turning into a Contractor by unknown means. She can use water as part of her Contractor abilities as a weapon.
Michiru, like many other Contractors previously, has shown herself be to emotionally distant and cold, to the point where she addresses her former family icily and openly ignores her son, Norio. She only seems devoted to completing whatever assignment she has been given.
Michiru's ability allows her to detect and control bodies of water. She can use this ability to sense the enemy's presence and then subsequently attack them, manipulating the very same water source. This can be achieved through various means, such as surrounding an opponent with a significant amount of water so that they drown, or increasing the pressure at which the water is ejected to such an extent that it produces a concussive force on contact. She can also control the water's density and stream, in order to physically restrain a target, by encircling the victim's limbs. However, Michiru must seemingly be in contact with the water's current container, to effectively employ her powers.
Her Obeisance is to perform the process of cooking but she appears to prefer baking over other forms, and it suggested that she is relatively good at conducting this task.
Role in StoryEdit
She is first glimpsed in Lebanon's restaurant in the form of a photo, wherein Lebanon identifies her as his former wife and Norio's former mother, who left the two when Norio was just three years old after becoming a Contractor via unknown means. Michiru is first seen in person attempting to capture Hei, or otherwise immobilize him. She channels her powers through a pipe, making a stream of water erupt outwards from a toilet in Hei's room. Hei escapes the oncoming water by exiting the room and sliding down the pipe, but Michiru makes a part of it violently explode, sending Hei through the air. However, he manages to land deftly, and roughly hold her by the neck, but he is held at gunpoint by two armed guards allied with Michiru. Michiru then channels her powers through a sewer cover, sending a geyser of water rushing upwards that knocks Hei into a nearby car, and she makes good her escape.
She is later seen in the company of Misaki, and as the two are about to leave the hotel room that they have been investigating, Norio recognizes her and calls out to her, but she ignores him. Much to the surprise of Lebanon and Norio, she later turns up at the restaurant, confronting the both of them, and asks them if she can use their oven.
She is then seen in the middle of cooking as Lebanon and Norio attempt to strike up a conversation with her, and they ultimately fail to do so. After she leaves the restaurant, she is once again seen in the company of Misaki. She later pursues Suou, and the two face off, with Michiru manipulating water from a nearby fountain to pin Suou down. Suou summons her rifle in response, and fires, but misses. Michiru, in an instance of showing a degree of care for her family, calmly blames Suou of being the person who dragged Norio into the world of Contractors, and prepares to finish Suou off when she is suddenly encapsulated by Yin in a sphere of water. Unable to escape, she drowns, and her corpse is grieved over by Norio.
