- HAKOS BAELZ – Detailed intro of her mama Mika Pikazo.
Before we get the ball rolling, I assume I don’t need to tell this to those who’ll actually read this article, but keep in mind the Papa and Mama artists who designed these new VTubers are Japanese artists, and it’s likely their Twitter feeds linked below will include risque artwork.
First off, you need to check out the Hololive EN Council trailer if you haven’t yet. Introducing the five talents. They’re the administrators of the world who were teased with the Hololive Prelude and Hololive Omen videos.
Profile and debut stream time for Tsukumo Sana
A member of the Council and the Speaker of “Space,” the very first concept created by the Gods.
After being materialized in the mortal realm, she began researching astrology in earnest for one particular reason. However, she soon stumbled unknowingly upon the Forbidden Truth, and was turned into an apostle for the Ancient Ones.
“Space” refers not only to this universe we live in, but all dimensions and matter to exist. It is a concept unbridled by definition, and one that continues to grow in scope limitlessly. As it is yet to be fully explored by man, her seemingly strange behavior and speech can be explained away with a simple, “Humanity simply isn’t yet ready to understand.”
As a side note, despite how she may look, she is quite chi… young.
Tsukumo Sana has just debuted, find her stream below, and here’s a link to the Reddit Megathread for impressions.
Tsukumo Sana and her cool Papa artist pako
Tsukumo Sana (九十九 佐命) is one o the biggest VTubers in existence, and she’s using a size limited to stay on earth. You can find her youtube here. Tsukumo Sana’s Papa is pako (Twitter), he’s most notably the character designer for Red Entertainment PS2 otome game Scared Rider Xechs which got an anime in 2016, and of Mages’ Occultic;Nine.
pako has a simple and uncluttered but pretty cool style. Back in the 2000s, pako also handled the illustrations of popular novel Rental Magica. Tsukumo Sana’s inside person lives in Australia.
Profile and debut stream for Ceres Fauna
A member of the Council and the Keeper of “Nature,” the second concept created by the Gods.
She has materialized in the mortal realm as a druid in a bid to save nature.
She has Kirin blood flowing in her veins, and horns that are made out of the branches of a certain tree; they are NOT deer antlers.
“Nature” refers to all organic matter on the planet except mankind.
It is long said that her whispers, as an avatar of Mother Nature, have healing properties. Whether or not that is true is something only those who have heard them can say.
While she is usually affable, warm, and slightly mischievous, any who anger her will bear the full brunt of Nature’s fury.
Debut stream time: Sunday, August 22, 2021, from 11:30 AM (PDT). The stream is ongoing:
Ceres Fauna and her Mama Asaki Tohsaka
Ceres Fauna (セレス・ファウナ) has deer-like horns. You can find her channel here. Ceres Fauna’s Mama is Asagi Tohsaka (Twitter), the illustrator of the light novel Megami no Yuusha wo Taosu Gesu na Houhou (The Dirty Way to Destroy the Goddess’s Heroes). The series is fully published in the USA, six volumes, by Yen On.
Asagi Tohsaka is a pretty popular freelance artist, and it looks like she’s fully booked for 2021 according to her Twitter bio. At least, she’s not taking any more work this year. In 2020, she started illustrating another Light Novel which is still ongoing: Buta no Liver wa Kanetsu Shiro (Heat The Pig Liver).
Ouro Kronii profile, debut time
A member of the Council and the Warden of “Time,” the third concept birthed by the Gods and the one most intrinsically linked with mankind.
None may escape the sands of time and, indeed, most men do not even wish to be freed from her captivity. She picked up the blades almost as a reflex action of sorts, and seems to be enjoying it. Her quiet, aloof personality has never changed over the ages, but she has developed a little bit of haughtiness and sadistic tendencies along the way…
Originally, the concept of time was but a cog in the wheel, one which only functioned in tandem with others.
Eventually, humans went on to give time individual meanings such as dawn and dusk, making it universal. The humans became enslaved to Time in return for empowering her. In her present form, she has become a sadistic, prideful warden.
Debut stream: Sunday, August 22, 2021, from 1 PM (PDT).
Ouro Kronii and her Nasuverse artist mama Arco Wada
Ouro Kronii (Twitter) (オーロ・クロニー) ‘s mama is Arco Wada, popular artist known worldiwde thanks to Fate/Grand ORder / FGO. Her name is also stylized as WADARCO, She’s the artist behind some of the most suggestive character designs of the Nasuverse, with her work on Passionlip and Meltryllis. She’s also known to have a high heels fetish.
Her name is also sometimes stylized as WADARCO. She’s also working on the character designs of Fate/Extra Record, the remake by Type-Moon Studio B.B. You can find the Twitter for Wada Arco here. Be sure to read our dedicated feature on Wada Aruko for more details on her career.
Nanashi Mumei profile, debut time
A member of the Council and the Guardian of “Civilization,” a concept crafted by mankind.
As a living embodiment of the sum of mankind’s efforts—the mark that humans have left on the world—she is far removed from her fellow members, as well as other lifeforms. Due to not being created by the Gods, she was free to choose her own appearance, and decided to make herself owl-like, after the bird that symbolizes wisdom.
She is gentle, wise, and an unbelievably hard worker. As a well-traveled vagabond, she is blessed with a wealth of knowledge of the world. She has seen, heard, and experienced so many things that she has forgotten most of them, one of them being her own name.
For some reason, she seems to project a rather pitiable aura. Perhaps this is in part thanks to the loneliness she has often felt in her perennial travels. That is what gave her the idea of making her own friend out of a material that was indispensable to the development of human civilization: paper.
“It may fade and rip, but once a friend, forever a friend.”
More on Nanashi Mumei and her papa Azuuru (Azure)
Both “Nanashi” and “Mumei” are synonyms of “nameless” in Japanese. Azure (also written as Azuuru) is the character designer of Nanashi Mumei. He’s the illustrator of Majo no Tabitabi (Wandering Witch: The Journey of Elaina) a novel which started in 2016, with 16 volumes so far. You can check out his Twitter account here.
Nanashi Mumei also has an owl shaped like a paper bag. This is another pun, as owl is “fukurou” in Japanese, and you can also say “fukuro” for bag.
Hakos Baelz profile, debut time
A member of the Council and the very concept of Chaos, birthed by the world, itself.
The Gods appointed her Chairperson of the Council, but she mostly takes a hands-off approach as she has yet to accept the decision, much like her fellow members. That said, all of them have no intention of contending; instead to obey.
Her mouse-like appearance has deceived many a fool who fails to realize that mice are the harbingers of chaos.
Also of note is her wild smile, which she often flashes in her frequent romps.
Chaos is confusion and disarray, it is fortune and tragedy, and it is freedom from all the logic and inherent nature of life.
She believes that rules are not the be-all and end-all, which is why she has come to break them all.
Watching the aftermath is her greatest joy, and so she remains a bystander to the destruction caused by mayhem.
Debut stream time: Sunday, August 22, 2021 from 4 PM (PDT) (Youtube).
For further reading on Hakos Baelz and her mama Mika Pikazo, we have dedicated feature on the duo. That’s all the debut, profiles and initial lore details for the members of Hololive EN Gen 2. Stay tuned on DualShockers as we’ll keep a close eye on the future of Hololive EN.
First Hololive EN Gen 2 collab stream: Council Meeting (August 23 update)
Don’t forget the first-ever collab stream with all five members is happening slightly after the Hakos Baelz debut stream. It’s happening in around 30 minutes as I’m writing this. Click here for a countdown.
Personally, I’ve liked Hakos Baelz’s debut the most among the five, but it’ll definitely be interesting to see them all interact with each other. If you can still make it (we’ve been going through over five hours of debut streams!) be sure to tune in for the first-ever Hololive EN Gen 2 collab stream.
