Manu controls the clouds, which gives them the power to bring about rain, as well as snow on occasion, though it’s much harder for them to do so. Their powers best uses are to debilitate the opponent or to create cover. Manu’s powers are more defensive rather than offensive, and they work best when they mainly stay behind. They’re like Little Mac in Smash Brothers during team battles, they work best as defense.

◉ personality ◉
Shy || Naive || Docile || Calm || Awkward || Intelligent || Kind || Pushover
Manu is a very quiet and shy person, and they tend to part themselves from other groups. Growing up, they never really socialized with people much and struggled to communicate. Whenever they'd get teased, Manu didn't know how to stand up for themselves, and never really spoke to anyone unless directly spoken too or when necessary. They are very socially inept and naive due to this, but they are very kind at heart and don’t harm people on purpose. They are very intelligent and are a gifted strategist, growing up to study and work in the field of science. They also love music, though will only show their playing to others when really close (mostly only their cousin and mother have heard them play, and only his cousin has heard him sing.)
Since they’re quiet, they can seem to be very calm and composed, and while they generally act like this, they can be very easily rattled. They also sometimes get panic attacks, which comes from their anxiety. They also tend to think lowly of themselves, despite their genuine strengths. This can slow them down, but they are very humble and modest which makes them easy to work with. When Manu has gotten to know someone and be their friend, they can open up quite quickly and will be able to connect very well.
◉ biography ◉
Manu was born in the city of Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, and raised as an only child by their mother, Adriana Marino. Manu went to a private school as a kid, and was never very social to begin with. Manu didn't grow up having many friends, mostly just his cousin, Diana Hernandez, one of the few people who accepted them. Due to Mexico’s culture and attitude regarding gender and gender roles, Manu never really felt like they fit in, and didn’t know their place until they were much older.
Growing up, they became interested in chemistry and geography, as well as music and learned to play guitar. Inspired by their city's fluctuating weather, Manu decided to study meteorology, the study of climate change and storms. Mostly storms. Manu moved around studying weather, and one day on a trip up some mountains to get a better view of a storm, Manu fell into a sort of water hole. In there, they found a small blue stone that caught their attention. That is how Manu found their spirit stone.
"Guardian? That sounds… exciting, but frightening."
◉ relations ◉
Adrianna Marino || actual mama || Manu's mother, they have a strange relationship. It took a while for their mother to accept her child, and still refers to them as "he." This is partially because in Spanish there are no gender neutral pronouns, though.
Diana Hernandez || Cousin || Best friend || Diana was the first person who truly came to accept Manu for who they were. Being only 2 years younger than them, Diana was like a sister to Manu, and their best friend growing up. They still keep in contact today.
(more to be added as time progresses)
◉ other/extra ◉
Despite the fact that they are afraid of loud noises, they love storms and rain. They don't like the sound of thunder for the most part, but they love the beauty of storms so bad they are classified as natural disasters. They interest Manu, which is why they went into meteorology. They also like music, and can play the guitar.
