  • Lucy's Puppy
rdfs:comment
  • Emotionally repressed around people due to the poor and sometimes horrible treatment she received at the hands of others, Lucy was unreserved around the puppy and was often emotionally comforted by it when she was low. She took great care to keep the dog a secret from her tormentors and everyone else, and she would share her food with it and take it around the grounds. On some occasions, the pair would hear a younger Nozomi singing on the mountainside when she was hiding from her family.

  • Emotionally repressed around people due to the poor and sometimes horrible treatment she received at the hands of others, Lucy was unreserved around the puppy and was often emotionally comforted by it when she was low. She took great care to keep the dog a secret from her tormentors and everyone else, and she would share her food with it and take it around the grounds. On some occasions, the pair would hear a younger Nozomi singing on the mountainside when she was hiding from her family. As the dog grew up, its needs and appetite increased, to the point where Lucy gave up half of her meals to feed the stray. Seemingly befriended by another young girl, Lucy, at last, confided in her about the puppy's existence, at least in part to secure more food for it. Whether deliberately or accidentally, the girl Lucy befriended revealed the presence of the puppy to Tomoo, the ringleader of the worst of her tormentors. The gang of bullies grabbed the pup and then forced her to watch as they start hurting the dog. The bullies kick the dog and then proceed to brutally beat the dog to death with a vase, only regretting that it had died too quickly to suit their sick twisted sense of "fun." The killing of her only friend, which was likely made even worse by the possible betrayal of one she also believed to be a friend, proved too much for young Lucy. Giving in to her anger, she used her vectors to tear the children present to pieces. In the process of burying the pup, she met Kouta. Sadly, the betrayals and grief from the puppy's sudden and savage killing left scars that made Lucy unable to trust Kouta entirely, and when it appeared he had betrayed her as well, her murderous side unleashed in full. Lucy never forgot him, especially during times when she felt she failed to protect those for whom she cared. Ten years after Lucy's death, Kouta's daughter Nyuu found the jar Lucy buried at the dog's grave. Within it was a note and a jade stone, a memento of the time they spent together as children. The letter revealed Lucy's name, how much she cared for Kouta, and how much the time they spent together meant to her. The site of the dog's grave was also where the mysterious twins, who appear to be reincarnations of Nyu and Lucy, chose to reveal themselves. Like Aiko Takada, the puppy was only present for a short time in the story, but posthumously, it is one of the most important characters regarding its impact, direct or indirect, on every other character.
