Messier 72 Reference Sheet by serenofariane Messier 72 Reference Sheet by serenofariane
It was so awesome of :iconsinging-kiwi: to give me the opportunity to try and create a Messier senshi. I asked her to pick one for me since I had no idea which ones were left or which one I would be better with creating. :D So of course, I started my research and such right away. I don't have much fashion sense when it comes to my own clothing so hopefully this turns out alright!

Messier 72 is a globular cluster in the Aquarius constellation discovered by a French astronomer on August 29, 1780. My inspiration for the senshi uniform is being drawn from 1780's fashion (made modern of course, I'm going to give it a few twists). To learn a bit more about Messier 72, look here -> en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Messier_…

::About this Senshi::
------------------------
Senshi Name: Sailor Messier 72
Senshi Of: Messier 72, cluster of predawn
Attacks:
1. Messier Telescopic Inferno- it magnetizes her opponent to bring them closer to her then strikes them as if burning from the inside out until there is nothing left.
2. Messier Supernova Barracade- Shields at first, absorbing her opponent's attack and adding power to it at an alarming rate; then it explodes taking the opponent out.
3. Messier Blackout Beam- a black beam emits from her palm seemingly taking the light from the surroundings and blending it in that blackness to be unleashed upon her foe. (Note: Once unleashed the lighting returns to normal)
Civilian Name: Kirimei (Kiri-chan, Mei-chan) Augustine
Age: 26
Birthday: August 29
Hair Color: Bleach blonde with darker blonde highlights (and an orange streak on both sides of her head in her hair only when in senshi form)
Hair Type: Layered but straight
Hair Length: Short
Eye Color: Maroon-brown
Country of Origin: Spain
Gemstone: Orange Andalusite
Likes: Lilies; stargazing; reading books about plants, gardening, outer space and healthy living; taking long walks in the park; hot baths; holidays; the colors maroon, orange, and cream; drinking hot tea or coffee.
Dislikes: Onions; bullies; people who pretend to be smart/know everything; severe weather (tornadoes, floods, hail, really bad thunder or lightning storms) [NOTE: regular thunderstorms and rain are alright]; Mosquitoes; when her hot food or drink gets cold; when someone disorganizes her desk or bookshelf.
Dream: To one day discover a new solar system or galaxy.
Personality: She is very intelligent and keeps to herself a lot. It's not that she is unable to socialize, it is that she choses not to a lot. She is opinionated about certain things and hard working. If someone or something is bothering her she will let you know; same with if she has something to say.
Powers: Making artificial light (like soft glowing orbs; usually in the color of blue, orange, pink or aqua),
Senshi Backstory:
In the past she was guardian 72 in charge of protecting the object Messier 72 from invaders. She lead a solitary life with no other guardians to keep her company or a companion to spend her days with. She always looked forward to the sisterhood meetings because they gave her a bit of a break and an opportunity to be around other people who shared her line of work. They too all had a duty they were sworn to and in the sisterhood it was hard to feel alone.
One day, a disturbance showed itself on her observation radar at the Messier 72 Tower. She could get no readings other than the fact that it was something that was not supposed to be there or posed a threat to the Messier object. So, she went to investigate not knowing what she would be walking into exactly. She was greeted by a foe who overwhelmed her instantly. She did not even get a chance to retaliate or defend. Her attacker was relentless. Helpless to react or stop the assault, she surrendered her crystal to the galaxy cauldron making one final wish before disappearing. She wished to be reborn smarter and stronger, capable of defeating the foe that so mercilessly took her from her role as the guardian of Messier 72.
Civilian Backstory: She was born in Spain to her parents who had moved there from Paris, France. Since a very young age, she was a very intelligent child and took an early interest in astronomy. She would stay up past her bedtime just to catalogue stars. Her parents supported her dream to become an astronomer and sent her through schools to help her reach that dream. She moved to Chile after finishing high school and a couple years of college to be a part of the astronomical community there. It was prime location for her to do some individual studies of her own devise (the center of the galaxy is able to be seen from there and Chile is considered the astronomy capital of the world). She often gets calls from Fujitaka Kiradori about strange occurrences to see if they are linked to any stellar phenomena or just to talk about things related to her individual findings.

:star: Fun Facts: :star:
Q: What does and astronomer do?
A: Astronomers study the fundamental nature of the universe, ranging from the vastness of space to the smallest of subatomic particles. They develop new technologies, methods, and theories based on the results of their research that deepen our understanding of how things work and contribute to innovative, real-world applications.
Q: Where does an astronomer work?
A: Astronomers spend much of their time working in offices, but they also conduct research in laboratories and observatories. Most physicists and astronomers work full time.
Q: How do you become an astronomer?
A: Physicists and astronomers need a Ph.D. for most research jobs. Many physics and astronomy Ph.D. holders begin their careers in a temporary postdoctoral research position, which typically lasts 2 to 3 years.
Q: What is the typical yearly pay for an astronomer?
A: In May 2010, the median annual wage for astronomers was $87,260.
Q: When are you most likely able to see Messier 72 in the sky?
A: About an hour or so before sunrise.
Q: How far away from Earth is Messier 72?
A: It is 53,000 light years away. It’s about twice as far away as the galactic center is. In fact, the only reason it’s in Messier’s catalog at all is because it’s one of the most intrinsically bright globular clusters in the galaxy, and yet is the third most diffuse globular cluster in Messier’s catalogue.
Q: How old are some of the stars in the Messier 72 cluster?
A: Every star you see in the cluster is about twice the age of our Sun, at 9.5 billion years old.

Haha yep! XD AWESOME!! Though she doesn't currently live there; Chile is her current residence. M61 should come visit her sometime! ^.^ Thanks so much, it was such a pain to get those little details on there. Talk about a real challenge, lol.

n///n Aww thanks so much! :hug: :heart: I finally settled on what colors I wanted to use for her, lol. I stuck closely to the colors of her gemstone and that really helped me out a lot. I am quite pleased with the final product and hopefully I will be able to give her a proper epic background later (I saved the layers file just for that reason <.<). Of course I need to make a few information choices as well but other than that, lol, she is done being designed! XD

Thank you so much!! ^.^ I was going to make the skirt sheer but I liked it better solid...

I think solid was a good choice with the thigh highs. And also the fashion sense of the fuku isn't outrageous at all, I can picture some people liking and wearing that style~

Her civilian form will look more normal but I think I will put a streak of orange and either maroon or blue in it for her senshi form. <.<

If you have color suggestions other than the ones I have given her so far, I am definitely open for suggestions... @.@ SO many colors to choose from and my brain is so fried this week!! I would like to stick with oranges, yellows, pinks/salmons, maroons and blues though. I just don't know where I would want to put them....

^.^ Thanks! This has turned into a "pick colors as you go" sort of thing, lol. I am so not good at making color choices so I am drawing from whatever inspiration I used for the colors (fading clothes were easier than shading at the time, so I am glad it looks alright). I am particularly fond of her transforming wand.

Amg I did that too - I started out with silver/black, and ended up with two shades of purple. XD;

I have the same problem - which is why I can't design characters to save my life. But I think you did great! I love her style - I can't wait to see more of her.~ ;u;

Lol, no one is bothering me. They were hidden because they were "oops" posts and my replies is all. n_n It's when they are flagged as spam that they are bad for my deviations. XD I wish there were a way to delete all together instead of hide old comments/oops posts.

Thank you so much!! ^.^ Now I need to decide on a color scheme. XD Gonna be tough!

:iconhappytearsplz: Thank you so much!! I still have quite a ways to go in her design (FINAL colors [like what is going to go where], transforming pen [pen is designed but not the colors currently] and information) but I am very happy with how she turned out. I was super worried she would look too close to the one you designed (who, btw, is BEAUTIFUL!!!). Hopefully I can succeed in making her unique to the Messier sisterhood. n_n

XD Thanks so much! I am rather pleased with how she is turning out. ^.^ I love pretty much everything about her. I do need to come up with some information on her though... That's gonna be tricky. Her gemstone is going to be Orange Andalusite I think though.
