Becoming friends with Kiseki
Haruna stands slightly over average height with pale skin and narrow, amber eyes. She has shoulder length, black hair that is worn freely and shown to be somewhere between neat and unkempt. Her eyes are usually half-lidded, giving her a rather intimidating and creepy appearance.
She wears a pair of black pants and matching blouse. Over top, a violet cardigan she always wears open and brown loafers. When in her school uniform, Haruna compliments it with a pair of black tights, matching cardigan and gray loafers.
Donning her Symphogear, Haruna wears a black, gray and white undersuit that bares her stomach. Her relic is placed at her neck, attached to the collar of her undersuit. The undersuit's bottom half is separated into a black undergarment resembling short-shorts or "underwear", while the other is gray and white, and drapes over top as a sort of loincloth, covering her front and backside. Black and gray armor at her legs, resembling armored heels and gray knee-high stockings with white lining. Matching elbow-length gloves with black fingers and bracelet. Black bands around both thighs and upper arms, white and gray armor on each. A gray and white rocket booster at her backside, a black jewel in the center. She wears gray and white headphones, a piece of curved gray armor at the top of each, placed on the sides of her head.
With the Ignite Module activated, Haruna gains a black butterfly emblem on her chest with gray insides.
Her undersuit becomes mainly black and dark gray, it also losing all white tones. The top becomes thinner, the middle becoming translucent with a gray tint and the rest being completely black. Armor on her wrists, upper arms, head and thighs become black and sharper. The armor's "loincloth" becomes more triangular in shape and shortens drastically, in addition to no longer possessing a rear half. The armors "shoes" now resemble stilettos and cover Haruna's feet completely, the top half of her gloves become gray while the from the wrist down are black. The bands on her thighs become thinner and gain thin straps, linking to her stockings, a silver gem on the top of each strap. Her rocket booster becomes dark grey and silver.
Haruna is an aloof and deadpan 16-year-old girl. In the first season, Haruna displayed common signs of complete apathy and a total lack of remorse. She is antisocial, observant and stoic to the point of being emotionless. Haruna shows obvious signs of emotional detachment, being unable to connect with others on an emotional level; this being constantly and numerously displayed she is around Kiseki.
On few occasion, Haruna will display small hints of heart and concern, but not very often and usually for specific or few individuals, centering her "friends" as a category and others, not. If she shows concern and compassion toward an individual it doesn't last very long, as when the moment passes, she immediately reverts back to her original state of mind. She also possess traits of laziness and halfheartedness, not being motivated by major things, but simply things she describes as "interesting".
