|“||The best stylist can extract the unique charm from each work infused by any designer, enable the wearer to feel the magic of the clothing, and help them face their life with more confidence.||”|
Kimi, often referred to as Lady Kimi, is a character that appears in Love Nikki. She is the daughter of Apple Federation Apparel Group's president, and is heiress of this group. She is currently working for and treaveling with Joe, the chief designer of the group.
Kimi is a short, doll-like teen girl with pale skin and sharp grey eyes. Her long, silver hair is worn loose with a braid on each side of the head pulled back and held with a ribbon. Her short bangs are neatly brushed and layered.
Her normal attire consists of a white dress with black ribbon details, black 15cm heels with black string wrapped on each ankle, and a simple pair of earrings.
Haughty, strong, brave even in the face of trouble. Kimi has grown up with a strong sense of responsibility. She is quite independent and a hard worker rising to the top and becoming a great stylist and business leader without the help of her father's influence.
Kimi is the only daughter of the most rich and powerful businessman in the nation of Apple Federal, the chairman of the Apple Federation Apparel Group. As such, she has lived all her life in the lap of luxury and had also witnessed how hard her family and their close associate, Mr. Joe, have worked for the enterprise. Kimi wants to not just be known as "the heiress" of the Apparel, but also be a stylist in her own right. For example, when she was a preteen girl she designed a suit, Bright Galaxy, completely on her own to shut up the people who thought she'd have a high position in the firm handed to her solely for being the daughter of the president.
Kimi makes her first appearance during 2 - 8 Rehearsal at Theater! She is seen talking to Lisa and comments that the Star Sea was worth the trip before Joe informs her that the president of the Apple Federation wants them to return. Momo also comments on her great beauty.
Kimi reveals that she and Joe have been watching Nikki's performance at the Designer's Tea Party. Joe then comments that Nikki has natural talent, to which Kimi agrees, calling her a gem. However, she states that Nikki still has a long way to go if she was to work for the Apple Federation Apparel Group. She then decides to introduce herself to Nikki and asks if she could compete with her. If Nikki wins, she will consider guiding her towards becoming an outstanding stylist.
Kimi and Orlando appear on the Cloud Empire, telling Nikki that they're in a very difficult situation: the Apparel Group has been targeted. On one hand, Orlando managed to rescue Kimi from kidnappers and take her to safety in Cloud, where Zhu Ruosheng will keep them safe; on the other, Joe and Kimi's father Schiller (the Apparel Group's chairman) have been captured. Naturally, Kimi is in quite the vulnerable mental and emotional state, and even more since Orlando was severely wounded trying to protect her.
After Bobo and Nikki manage to cheer her up a little, Kimi decides to stay in Cloud and lay low. Orlando, however, decides to go to war since his homeland is the only thing that can top his friends, and warns Nikki and Kimi about staying calm and looking at things objectively no matter what. Kimi, then, changes her mind and makes her definitive choice: returning to Apple Federation and fighting back against the ones who seized her family's company. Nikki, Momo and Bobo decide to go with her.
The duo have a friendly rivalry with each other. Kimi views Nikki as a stylist with great potential and entourages her to grow and improve her skill. She becomes one of Nikki's strongest supporters and helps her practice her styling before contests. Kimi speaks very highly of Nikki wherever she goes, namely to Nidhogg and Orlando, and even Joe is surprised by the extent of her praise.
There are hints and speculation that Kimi has romantic feelings for Nikki. In some item descriptions they describe Kimi as preferring Nikki over Joe, and she is shown getting flustered during the Valentine's Day event and denies it meaning anything.
The two are usually seen together, since Joe has a high position in the Apparel Group. There are rumors that he and Kimi are in a romantic relationship, plus Joe is mentioned to be very popular with women in general, but they are not: they view one another as close friends and partners, nothing less and nothing more. In the Valentines Event, Joe even gives flowers to Nikki - and quickly adds they're from Kimi, rather than from himself.
They have known on another for a long time, perhaps from childhood. Orlando speaks fondly of Kimi after his duel with Nikki, saying that she's the first person Kimi has ever praised highly. In Chapter 16 he saves her from being kidnapped, but is severely injured. They later part ways since he wants to fight for the Apple Federation whereas Kimi must stay aside for her sake.
Chairman Schiller Edit
Schiller is Kimi's father, and the leader of the Apparel Group. Since Kimi's mother died when she was very young, he's raised her on her own and to be the competent, hardworking heiress of Apparel. While he hasn't been seen on-screen (as of late 2018), Kimi is said to be quite fond of him, and is extremely distressed when he and Joe are captured and she barely manages to run away with Orlando.
|“||And let's not forget, father is still in the hands. These people want to open the Group's treasury. They will not treat him nicely... But even if I go back to the Apple Federation, there is no way I can save father... I have nothing.||”|
