At first glance Libitina appears to be a frail bookworm, having spent her entire life in the world of books.
Apparel & Accessories
Until recently, Libitina could almost always be seen in a typical school uniform, consisting of a warm gray blazer fully buttoned and untucked, brown sweater vest, white shirt slightly unbuttoned at the collar and tucked, red ribbon, and a grey pleated skirt. After working with Damien to remove the Curse she held since the days of the Project, her typical attire has changed to be a Fantasy-Esk white dress, with a golden intricate design and a purple lotus symbol inlaid near the neck area.
She also almost always is wearing a standard issue Collective Timepiece which appears to merely be a simple analog watch at first glance.
Besides the Standard Issue Collective Timepiece, Libitina is also known to wield a black tinted Knife in battle which has been said to be sharp enough to cut through almost anything as if it was mere paper.
As the Prime subject of the Libitina Project, Libitina has quite a few abilities she can use, some of which she herself likely only knows. Those we are aware of can be found below:
As part of the Libitina Project, Libitina forcibly underwent the Rite 7 times, enhancing her abilities well beyond the Baseline.
The Purple Lotus
Libitina's unique skill, once believed to have been born from the Project itself. Previously known as the Eye of Shadow, the ability itself has been renamed the Purple Lotus, signifying the unification of the Blue and Black Lotus Flowers, each representing two sides of the same coin, Life and Death.
- Touch of Death and Decay: Wieldng the power of the Black Lotus, Libitina can speed up the Decay of anything she touches, whether animate or Inanimate. This could potentially be used to speed up the decay of objects, or even cause the body parts of others to enter a Necrotic state, heavily injuring them if not killing them outright.
- Black Lotus Bloom: Wielding the Black Lotus, Libitina can call upon the Power of the Black Lotus to siphon the very lifeforce of a target, granting her power on par with whoever she targets. This makes her an immense force to be reckoned with, for so long as she can latch on to a target, she can become as strong as whoever she has ensnared with her power.
Code Third Eye: An override code designed by Management and Renier which would remove all inhibition forcing Libitina into a creature ruled entirely by bloodlust willing if not eager to erase anything in her path, whether friend or foe.
As of April 29th 4151, this Override code was removed by Damien, freeing her from Managements control and removing any hold it had on her.
- Nature's Wrath: Once Believed to be a part of the Black Lotus, it has been revealed that this ability actually drew from the Blue Lotus, when wielding this ability Libitina can unleash the Wrath of Nature itself, either by blocking exits with a set of Vines, entrapping and entangling a chosen target for easily using Black Lotus Bloom or Blue Lotus Bloom.
- Blue Lotus Bloom: Similar in nature to the Black Lotus Bloom skill, when Libitina causes the Blue Lotus to bloom, the Blue Lotus will transfer a portion of her own Life Force to allies in the area healing and reinvigorating them at the cost of draining some of her own Life Force to do so.
The Black Lotus
Signfying Death and Decay, the Black Lotus grants Libitina with these abilities
The Blue Lotus
Signifying Life and Growth, the Blue Lotus is the other side of the coin that is the Purple Lotus, granting Libitina with the following abilities.
After regaining control of the Blue Lotus thanks to Damien's assistance, Libitina has unlocked the full extent of the Purple Lotus, granting one final ability.
To improve readability, we have decided to split this section into "Chapters," as it were. Each section will have a Header above it which you can access from the Table of Contents for this entry.
Chapter 1: Child of the Lotus
The story of Libitina began at the dawn of the Second Era, in a Realm that was created during an experiment by Management, a group of entities with supreme power before being swiftly abandoned. Following her birth, Libitina's parents seemed to vanish from history itself, with the only evidence of their existence being Libtina's last name Salvino. During her time in this world, she ended up making friends with three of her neighbors who lived in the same cul-de-sac as she did; Monika, Sayori, and Natsuki. Over the next couple of years, Libitina forged a bond with her three friends that they collectively believed would make them inseparable. Little did they know, just how right they were. As fate would have it, during one of their exploration outings, the four stumbled upon an unstable space left behind from Management's initial experiment. Drawn to the mesmerizing, almost alien space, Libitina and Monika both reached out into the unstable space. This act would change both of them forever. When Libitina removed her hand from the unstable space, she saw that she was holding a Blue Lotus Flower. Libitina did not think much of this at first, as to her, it was just a pretty flower. But she quickly figured out that there was more to it when shortly after leaving the space, Sayori and Natsuki began to fall ill. In an attempt to comfort her friends and tell them everything would be alright, she placed her hand on their shoulders and inadvertently began to transfer some of her very life force to them, allowing them to instantly recover. Unfortunately for Libitina, her friends were not the only ones to witness this miracle. A shadow was watching them after leaving the space. To make matters worse, unbeknownst to the four friends, their entry into the Unstable Space resulted in a broadcast being sent out to the space's creators. Management knew someone entered the unstable space, and they weren't too keen on hearing about its rediscovery. Management sent two envoys to the Realm, Dark and the Architect, to figure out what happened and "clean things up" if need be. They quickly made contact with the four, and after seeing what Monika and Libitina were capable of, Dark offered to help them hone their skills and unlock their potential, along with helping Sayori and Natsuki also unlock their own innate potential. This was an arrangement Libitina readily agreed to, as Dark began to teach her to wield her new power, what he called the "Blessing of the Blue Lotus."
Chapter 2: Corruption of the Gift
After many lessons with Dark, Libitina learned to all but master the power of the Blue Lotus. But when it came time for the final lesson, Dark informed her that Monika would not be joining her, as she informed him she had something urgent to handle elsewhere. Trusting Dark wholeheartedly, she did not question this, and even agreed to allow Dark to take her to a facility with better equipment so he could help her achieve perfect control without risking side effects. They made their way to the facility known as the Academy, and Dark hooked her up to the machine, before hooking himself up to the second one to begin the "Transfer." Unfortunately, as it turned out, Dark wasn't planning to transfer some of his power to her; he was planning to transfer something else entirely. An ancient evil sealed within him was beginning to break free. Dark deemed Libitina the best candidate to ensure they never broke out, but it was a ruse. Evil tricked him into picking Libitina not because it would ensure it would remain sealed, but because it would ensure a partial release. To make matters worse, the leader of the Academy, Renier, also double-crossed Dark and the Architect, planning to use Libitina's gift for a far more sinister purpose. Forcibly opening her Third Eye, Renier and Evil corrupted her Gift, transforming the Blue Lotus into the Black Lotus. This deeply affected Libitina, as she had worked hard to master her power, but now it had been twisted and corrupted beyond recognition. Thankfully, before Renier could take full control of the Black Lotus and Evil could regain his full power, Diana made their arrival, having been sent by Good to clean up this mess. But Renier and Evil had one last trick up their sleeves, a diabolical gamble with a singular purpose, to ensure they would get an infinite number of chances to succeed at their goals. To ensure no matter how many times they failed, history would repeat. A twisted curse was placed upon the realm, ensuring Libitina and Monika would never see true peace. And for those who helped Evil and Renier reach as far as they did, they handed out an even more twisted punishment, to be forced to be the ones to bring about the project in every era to come. Not even Diana was left exempt from their machinations, for in the last few blows between her and Evil's new Vessel, Evil chose to introduce darkness to her matrix that once only held Light, before allowing Renier to seal their fates by making Libitina the singular stability pillar for the entire Realm. This ensured that even if Renier and Evil did not win, Libitina and Monika would lose more, as to defeat Evil in his new Vessel would critically wound Libitina and cause the entire realm they came from to collapse. This was a well-laid trap, and as Evil predicted, Diana played right into it, sealing the fate of this realm and ensuring its collapse. Libitina and Monika were forced into a stasis by Dark and the Architect to ensure they would not perish with the collapse of their realm. But where could they even go when their home no longer existed? This was a question that weighed heavily on Libitina's mind, as she and her friends had lost everything they knew and loved. The last thought Libitina had was this: "Break the Cycle", before everything went white.
Chapter 3: The 3rd Era
Following the catastrophic collapse of Libitina's Homerealm, Dark and Azazel were tasked with the monumental responsibility of constructing a new home for Libitina and her companions. While it was clear that Libitina and her friends would never have the chance to lay eyes on their new abode in their current lifetime, the preparations made during this time proved to be invaluable in the cycles to follow.
When Libitina awoke in the 3rd era, she had no recollection of the events of her previous incarnation, leaving her ill-prepared for the cruel fate that awaited her. On a seemingly ordinary day, while playing with her friends in the Cul-de-sac, a group of shadowy individuals suddenly appeared, claiming that their family owed them money and that they needed to "Pay up". In reality, this was all a ruse masterminded by Renier, who wanted to test if his Perfect Vessel was still intact.
However, Renier's plan would not go entirely to plan, as one of the thugs ended up injuring Sayori. It was Monika who reawakened her digital mirage state and chased the thugs off. Renier's efforts would not be entirely in vain though, as Libitina reawakened the Blue Lotus in an attempt to save her friend, putting herself into a coma in the process as a price for transferring her lifeforce to her friend.
This was all Renier needed to get an opening and convince Libitina's friends that he could save her. He walked up to them claiming to be a Doctor who held the only equipment in the world that could save the young Libitina. Monika was skeptical of these claims, but with pressure from Sayori and Natsuki who were afraid for their friend's safety, she relented and let Renier take Libitina with him. Monika gave just one condition: she and her friends needed to be allowed to accompany them, which Renier agreed to without any resistance.
Renier took Libitina back to the Academy, placing her in a special recovery room before taking the other 3 to a dormitory prepared especially for them. Shortly after their arrival, Dark and Azazel arrived in the reborn realm, having detected an abnormal spike in power that occurred when Monika and Libitina unleashed their respective powers. Upon making it to the Academy, Renier welcomed the two outsiders with open arms, having expected the Envoys of The Collective, as he called them, to arrive for some time now and quickly motioned for them to enter the premises as he needed their assistance in healing Libitina.
Unfortunately, as it would soon be revealed, Renier had no intention of saving Libitina. Using his contract with the Sealed Evil within Dark and the knowledge he gained on Azazel's own predicament, Renier masterfully manipulated Dark and Azazel to reuse the equipment from the previous era to transfer the Sealed Evil back to Libitina, under the guise of Dark transferring some of his lifeforce to her in order to save her life. This sealed her fate once more, as the Blue Lotus inverted and corrupted back to the Black Lotus.
What awaited her friends, was an even more monstrous fate though, as Libitina used the Black Lotus to siphon the very lifeforce of her friends, using their strength and vitality to regain her own before proceeding to drain the very world she came from of its vitality. But, before she could finish draining the realm of its energy, Dark managed to break free and pulled a failsafe he set up, causing Libitina and Evil's lifeforce drain to reverse itself, effectively killing her in the process.
Before the reversal could fully drain Libitina's lifeforce though, Dark and Azazel froze her in stasis, in order to ensure Evil would not be able to use this chance to break out permanently. Dark and Azazel then engaged their preparations from last time, moving Monika, Sayori, Natsuki, and Libitina to their new world where they hoped they could live in peace until the end of the 3rd era.
However, as fate would have it, this would not come to pass, as Libitina and her friends opened their eyes for the first time in their new world, only to watch it be enveloped in purple flames, before they themselves were consumed as well marking the abrupt end of the 3rd era.
Chapter 4: Her Gambit
Libitina had been leading a smooth life during the onset of the 4th era. She had successfully completed high school with outstanding academic performance and had even received various scholarships as an accolade. However, just before she was about to turn 18, an inexplicable event occurred. Time seemed to come to a standstill, and when she regained consciousness the next day, she was shocked to discover that thousands of years had passed. Although bewildered, she shrugged it off and focused on her upcoming first day at the university. But unfortunately, things did not go as planned. She found herself in the company of only Monika, with Renier as their mentor. It didn't take long for them to realize that something was amiss, and soon they uncovered Renier's sinister intentions. Realizing that they were powerless to fight back, Libitina devised a daring plan. She and Monika decided to leave a clue for themselves in the next world, something that would serve as a reminder of what had happened. By a twist of fate, the clue came in the form of a book, the Portrait of Markov, which was delivered to their dormitory in the name of Yuri Salvino. Libitina was hesitant, but time was of the essence, and she had to trust the plan. She handed the book to Monika, who had an inkling of what to do with it.
Monika immediately got to work binding the book to their story before using her Digital Mirage state to conceal it within Libitina's Aura, thus ensuring it would make it to this new world with them when the time came. Armed with this relic, Libitina believed the tides of fate were finally going to change in their favor. No longer would she be forced to forget the treatment she has been forced to endure. And so, she returned to her Dorm, awaiting her inevitable destiny. After being brought to the chamber, Libitina showed no resistance to The Puppetmaster, the Architect or Renier, and simply smiled as she was put under. Someway or another, Libitina was going to make them all pay for her suffering.
Chapter 5: The Literature Club
As with the last 2 attempts, the Libitina Project appeared to end in complete calamity, but unlike before, The Puppetmaster, The Architect, and The Vessel were ready for what DA would do once taking refuge inside the young Libitina. The moment the realm began to collapse, The Puppetmaster immedietely froze Libitina, and her friends, extracting Libitina's consciousness and sealing it within the containment vessel they already prepared, sending all of them to a new realm by the ID of 8074. Yuri then awoke for her first day of class, none the wiser of what happened before her awakening. She quickly found herself reunited with her old friends, with them all working to start a Literature Club at this new school. Life seemed to be entirely ordinary for Yuri and the others and it seemed they might be able to get away with a normal life after enduring constant calamity. Unfortunately for Yuri and her friends though, Monika had other plans. She found herself with the equivalent of Superuser privelages upon arriving in this new reality, and she used these privelages to create a 5th entity within this world. A Blank Slate she could use to ensure Libitina would awaken within her containment. Monika wanted to awaken her so they could live their lives in peace, removing the shackles placed on her friend. This would turn out to be a grave error, as the corrupted presence within Yuri, her old friend, did not wish for peace. Far from it, Libitina Salvino wanted revenge on those who wronged her, and in the twisted state DA left her in, her old friends were just as guilty as Renier himself was. Unfortunately for Libitina, The Puppetmaster had forseen Monika's choice, and setup a failsafe. Realm 8074 would reset itself the moment it detected Libtina began to stir. After beginning to awaken Libitina, Monika quickly realized her error and tried to stop her awakening. But Libitina saw through this plan and corrupted the failsafe forcing the realm to reset every 7 days instead, whether Libitina was awakened or not. In attempting to free her friend from the shackles that were placed upon them, Monika and Libitina turned the paradise they were given into an even graver Hell than the one they endured before. For 9999 loops, Libitina and Monika were forced to endure this endless cycle of suffering brought on by their own foolhardy choices. On the eave of the 10000th loop, the cycle seemed to abruptly stop, and Monika became much less active, closing down the literature club and effectively vanishing. Yuri and her other friends began to worry about what happened to her, but they were unable to find any evidence of where she had gone. Until one day when they stumbled upon a secret room hidden within their school with a window that seemed to lead directly into space itself and a note left behind by Monika herself.
If you are reading this, it means you found the room of awakening. I am afraid I will not be returning to you 3 in this life. My contract with Omega and the other Guardians will ensure your safety and wellbeing, but the price is that I work directly with them and cannot return to our home. I do apologize about this, and about the suffering I made us endure all this time. Hopefully we'll make better choices in the next life. Until then, I'll see you all in due time— Agent 507, Monika
Having read this note, Yuri and the others understood what happened and left the room of awakening. Monika had given up her freedom in order to ensure her friends could be free. A selfless act and a way of atoning for her sins. Yuri and her friends decided to return to class and reopen the literature club in her honor. But fate would not allow this to come to pass and the Day before the festival where they planned to officially reopen, dark energy consumed their new world, as the 4th age began to come to a close.
Libitina Salvino is currently enrolled at the Institute as a Senior.
