[IF Koihaku had the ability to PURIFY akumas, she would create a pure bright blue bubble to capture it, purify the akuma, and pop the bubble to release a non-akumatized butterfly. Afterwards, she would create another pure bubble, but this time to fix any damage done by the supervillain.~]
***She currently doesn't have a partner.***Appearance
Charisse is quite pretty for her age. She is half-French, half-Japanese. She has brown eyes and her hair is parted to the right with only two long strands in front of her ears, and a small ponytail tied in the back. She wears a violet sleeveless collared shirt and a red skirt with a small white strand just above. She wears long black socks and brown shoes. Her miraculous bracelet is worn on her left hand. It bears the symbol of a Kohaku Koi Fish in the center. Much like Ladybug and Cat Noir, the orange spots on the Koi Fish disappear after each minute until the entire Fish symbol is completely gone.
As Koihaku, the outfit is a mix of a Japanese kimono and ninja outfit. Her mask is white, but her eye pupils have now changed to a golden color. The upper part of the outfit is mostly white with some orange; the sleeves are moderately wide. The bottom half is similar to cargo pants that puff near the shin and tightens right above the ankes. The only noticeable complex design is on her back where the Koi Fish At the lower abdomen is a frilly ribbon tied to the back, that slowly goes from orange and fades away to white. Below, she wears white slippers.Personality
Charisse is normally a "keep to herself" and "low profile" kind of person. She dedicates herself to achieving high marks in her schoolwork and prefers to be by herself and work alone. This overachieving attitude results in some sleepless nights, but is held in high regards by peers. But she isn't socially awkward. Charisse can manage to hold a decent conversation with anyone just as good as the next person. The only trouble she has is if people ask her to hang out with them. Sometimes she'll accept or sometimes she'll try to find a way out of it because she's so used to being alone that group invitations often make her feel a bit uncomfortable. Plus, whenever it comes to "get-togethers", the people who planned it tend to cancel last minute or always show up late. Basically, they never do what they say they will. So Charisse has a bit of trust issues, but it doesn't take away her initial kindness or thoughtfulness. However, if someone got on her nerves, she can become quite annoyed and cold.
As Koihaku, Charisse is much more quirky and straightforward. Charisse shows more of a reckless, thrill-seeking, and hyperactive personality, taking interest even in the smallest things. She is selfless, blunt, sarcastic, and even optimistic about some suggestions when fighting supervillains, be it crazy or creative. Of course, she'll think it over afterwards. Teamwork isn't her forte, as she likes solving things by herself, but that's something she'll learn to overcome and learn from in the future.Relationships
André Lamarre: Charisse's French father is a popular landscape architect. His creative designs have earned him great admiration from many people worldwide. He even designed his family's own home patio and backyard. Charisse especially loves to sit near the small Koi Fish pond and be with her thoughts...
Suiren Lamarre: Charisse's Japanese mother is a businesswoman who is either behind the computer screen or behind the kitchen stove. She works hard to keep the company she's working for afloat in profits while also taking care of her family.
Yashinn: Charisse's kwami that allows her to transform into Koihaku. Charisse is much more open and honest to Yashinn about her feelings. Yashinn, in return, makes many efforts to motivate Charisse to get out more, do her best, and achieve her goals with great determination. To regenerate her strength, Charisse feeds Yashinn pretzels.Abilities
Charisse has a surprisingly artistic and imaginative mind when it comes to landscaping, much like her father. Because of her desire for traveling, she wants to visit popular locations and incorporate more ideas. Her skills are quite exceptional, which is why Andre tends to ask for his daughter's opinions when he's working on a project as well.
She knows how to speak 3 languages, and that's thanks to Suiren. Because she's moved around Japan, America, and France for her business errands, Charisse was able to pick up some words and learn. Her fluent speaking skills range in this particular order: Japanese, French, English.
As Koihaku, she has enhanced speed, agility, strength, and the ability to fly swiftly. Her weapon can extend to a long spear. The spear can also thrown at long distances with accuracy. She can face-chat/call on the blue diamond location when the spear is in it's "collapsed" form. Her special power, Misty Smog, allows Koihaku to create a array of clouds as both a distraction and for cover. The smog could either be humid steam or freezing air.

, the type of Koi Fish
- Charisse's natural beauty is callback to the various types of Koi Fish and their beautiful assorted colors
- Charisse was originally born in France, but lived in Japan for most of her life and stayed in America for only several years, which is why she still retains more of a Japanese style into the way she dresses
