Biography

Arashi was a model when she was a child (and still is). She was seen as a brat since she was rude and refused to respect authority.

In The War, Arashi was a member of Backgammon, a unit which had many members, with most of them slacking off, including Arashi. When Backgammon split apart, Arashi joined Knights, out of obligation to Izumi. She took part in Checkmate, along with the rest of Knights.

Appearance

Arashi has blonde hair and purplish-blue eyes. She has a total of three piercings, two on her left ear and one on the right; she also wears a ring on her right hand.

During The War, Arashi had brown hair and glasses, to copy the appearance of Akiomi, her crush.

Personality

Arashi is a kind and determined person. She has a strong desire to protect those close to her, and it can make her seem overbearing at moments. While she appears mature, she has a childish side.

She tries to solve her problems by herself while also attempting to help her friends at the same time. She preaches self-love, and preaches that she is beautiful no matter what others say.

Sexuality

Arashi is implied to like both men and women. She has a crush on her teacher, Akiomi. Arashi loves "hard-working boys and girls." She commonly says she may fall in love with someone after they do something nice to her.

Gender

Arashi says this about her gender and self-love: “No matter how much I want it, and no matter how hard I try... I could never become the beautiful woman I dream to be. But even if that’s true... I won’t let it depress me. I won’t whine about it anymore. I love myself most, no matter who I am.”

Arashi's fellow unit member, Izumi, says this about Arashi's gender: “If I had to categorize. But that one’s more like, ‘Gender: Narukami Arashi.’ And they’re best treated that way. Naru-kun will look at you weird when you treat them too much like a girl.”

Reaction

The western fandom is very accepting of Arashi's gender idenitity. On March 2nd 2022, in celebration of Arashi's birthday, Transgender Visibility Day and Women's History Month, a group of Korean Fans under the twitter handle @Naru_donation, donated 4,200 dollars to four human rights organizations.
