Today, i-style Project updated their VOCALOID3 character page to include the character design for Aoki Lapis’s older sister, Merli. In contrast to Lapis’s fair-skinned appearance and jewel accessory, Merli has dark skin and butterflies for accessories. Her voice provider hasn’t been revealed yet, but she now has a character background. According to the official website, Merli is 16cm tall, one centimeter taller than Lapis. Her personality is billed as strong-willed and tsundere; she’s a simple-minded little fiend who has a tendency to flip-flop between emotions. Down inside she has a pure heart, but since she doesn’t know much of the real world, she’d often tough it out in situations by pretending to know what she was talking about. While Lapis’s singing contains the power to bring life to things, hidden inside Merli’s singing is the power to absorb life energy.
