After a near-death encounter with an old witch resulted in Chaka becoming cursed into the form of a costume, he was forced to recruit a blood relative to wear him in order to continue his duties as Mage Corps general. However, of Chaka's relatives, only Asuka possessed the raw talent in the Magic Arts required to channel his power through, forcing him to be worn by her.
While Asuka is not technically the general of the Mage Corps, she has total control over both her own and her great grandfather's actions, giving her as much power as Chaka, the real commander, in the process. Due to still being a small child, she is very difficult to control and often ignores orders completely in favor of doing whatever she wants. As a result of this, the majority of control over the Mage Corps has been passed on to its Lieutenant General Melfeis Promenade.
During the events of Kichikuou Rance, Asuka and her grandfather remained loyal to Leazas after Rance was crowned its king, and assisted him in destroying the rebellion formed by Leazas White Corps General Ex Banquet. If Asuka is stationed in battle alongside Mill Yorks, she will become fixated on the slightly older mage's phantom beasts, and will persistently follow her around in order to make her summon more for her to play with, causing her to becoming unavailable as a commander for a period of time. After several weeks, Mill will grow tired of Asuka's pestering and offer to train her in summoning magic so that she will be able to summon phantom beasts of her own. After several weeks of training, Asuka will finally learn to summon a single highly powerful phantom beast, which she will be able to use to battle enemy armies from then on.
Personality and Appearance
Asuka is a small girl with curly brown hair. Her clothing consists of a child-sized variation of the standard Leazas Mage Corps uniform with the addition of a bib with a Machpiyo print around her neck. She is never seen without her great grandfather draped across her head and back, causing most of her hair to be obscured by his hat and mustache.
At only 7 years old, Asuka is largely oblivious to the greater conflicts of the world and is instead much more interested in things typical of children her age such as playing games and eating sweets. She is very spoiled, regularly receiving treats and presents from others, and often throws temper tantrums when she doesn't get her way.
Due to being the only one of Chaka's descendants with the magical skill required to channel his power through, Asuka is required to wear her great grandfather at all times to allow him to continue performing his duties as general of the Mage Corps. While Asuka loves Chaka very much, and often pats him whenever he cries over his predicament, her immaturity causes her to constantly go against his commands in favor of doing what she wants to do, preventing him from doing his job properly. Chaka is often frustrated by Asuka's behavior, and tries his best to scold her whenever she acts particularly childishly, though he is generally unsuccessful at deferring her.
During the events of Kichikuou Rance, Asuka becomes fascinated by the phantom beasts summoned by Mill Yorks due to finding their small and round appearances to be cute. As a result of this, Asuka begins to idolize Mill, following her around at all times in an attempt to emulate her. While Mill is greatly annoyed by Asuka's behavior initially, after Asuka learns to summon phantom beasts of her own, she becomes somewhat lonely, showing that she appreciated being admired by someone younger than her.
As the only living relative of Chaka Cadmium capable of skillfully practicing magic, Asuka has been entrusted with a great amount of power at an incredibly young age. While she is still a small and inexperienced child, her abilities are greatly enhanced when wearing her great grandfather, who is able to channel his own power through her body, allowing her to perform high level magic that is comparable to that of a skilled Zeth mage. She is also a very fast learner, and is able to summon Chuhai, a phantom beast that far surpasses those created by Mill in power, after only practicing summoning magic for a few weeks, suggesting that she has the potential to become much stronger with age.
Despite this substantial power boost, Asuka's abilities are still severely reduced by her youth. Her small body causes her to be unable to stand against most attacks, while her childish mind and short attention span often lead her to interfere with Chaka's efforts to lead their army in battle. Because of this, she has greatly reduced Chaka's capabilities as a general, making them ineffectual in comparison to most other mages.
For more in depth gameplay information of each game refer to:
- While Asuka is listed as possessing a Magic Lv2 Skill Level in the Kichikuou Rance guide book, Chaka is listed as having a Magic Lv1 skill level in his Rance World Notes Profile. As the two share all other statistics besides age, including Level and Level Cap, it is unclear if Asuka possesses greater raw potential than Chaka or if her skill levels have been reduced since Kichikuou's release.
