Miki Kwan is driven on becoming a serious, well-recognized reporter. She wants to blow the lid on some story somewhere. However, she does run into the problem that she can't seem to hide her sarcasm and acid tongue around her bosses and she's rather new. For now she's stuck on human interest stuff, but she's bound and determined to escape that beat. Sometimes, her sense of morality has prevented her from taking the step she needs to take to become a truly great reporter. She is really sometimes callous and unaware about the consequences of her behavior, but she won't deliberately hurt people. Miki believes in psychic phenomena and has heard rumors about some of the government projects for training them, but she has no idea about the extent of the supernatural world.
