Mine is a self-proclaimed "Genius Sniper", as well as being a sharp-tongued and quick-witted member of the assassin's group, Night Raid.
Mine is a young girl of below-average height. She has very long, pink hair tied in twin-tails on the right and left sides of her head, although, on occasion, it is free-flowing. She has big, pink eyes. She wears a pink outfit, consisting of a tied shawl with a high collar, a pink, long-sleeve shirt, a gown and black stockings with pink shoes.
Often quick to anger, and easily irritated with those that she does not know well, Mine is depicted with a cold, temperamental, and considerably aggressive personality. During his first days in Night Raid, Mine had a tendency to tease Tatsumi, due to him being the newest member, and often saying he wouldn't last.
Despite her cold exterior, she has shown to be warm and kind to those she has opened up to. She shows her compassionate side on one occasion by teasing Tatsumi to get his mind off of the death of Susanoo.
Over time, she develops romantic feelings for Tatsumi who returns the same feelings and the two having officially entered an intimate relationship.
Since having begun to date Tatsumi, she has shown a jealous side, such as getting angry over Leone's usual flirty advances into Tatsumi, as well as lecturing him how he has to refuse such advances firmly as he now has a girlfriend. At the same time, she has demonstrated being very worried about Tatsumi's well being, especially when he has not returned to the hideout (due to having been imprisoned) contemplating how she would have never thought she would become so anxious due to lack of contact with someone.
Mine wants there to be no racial discrimination, due to the fact because she is of half-foreign blood descent, which led her to be targeted by others as a kid.
Born and raised in the western borders of the Empire, Mine spent most of her childhood under harsh ridicule and misery from people for her half-foreign blood. She joined the Revolutionary Army after learning it was forming alliances with countries from the west. With the promise of a new country where diplomatic relations with the people from the west would improve, she fights so others of her race can be accepted and their children would not go through the discrimination and suffering she had.
One of her earlier missions has her paired up with Tatsumi where she explains to him a bit more about the Empire and the other Night Raid members. They slowly form a friendship, although she'd still tease him. The two remain paired when they go on their next mission: to kill a relative of the Prime Minister; Iokal. While Mine kills Iokal with one shot the remaining members of Night Raid are left to deal with his bodyguards. Tatsumi and Mine retreat as her job is done and while leaving he learns why Mine fights against the Empire. One of the Guards, however, escapes and ambushes Mine, so Tatsumi latches on to the attacker, telling Mine to take the shot (at close range). When she starts to object, he tells her he has faith in her. Mine kills the attacker and is about to accept Tatsumi before he hits her on the forehead, complaining that she nearly killed him as well. The two return to the hideout, having grown a bit closer after this experience.
Her next mission would have her paired up with Sheele and upon completing their assignment, they encounter Seryu Ubiquitous. During the battle, she would deal with Koro while Sheele goes after Seryu, and because of this Mine is grabbed and suffers an injury. Unfortunately, because of this Sheele decides to rescue Mine rather than finish off Seryu. Having saved Mine, Sheele is immediately shot by Seryu and bitten in half by Koro. Clinging onto life, Sheele orders Mine to escape before Seryu's back up arrives and activates her teigu's trump card allowing Mine to escape. Mine returns to the hideout, sharing the bad news of Sheele's demise at the hands of Seryu Ubiquitous declaring vengeance.
During an invasion from Dr. Stylish, Mine comes to Tatsumi's aid as he's overwhelmed by Kaku. Seeing that he wields Sheele's teigu, Extase, both Mine and Tatsumi are angered. Kaku attempts to attack Mine, only to be instantly killed instead. Najenda returns with the new recruits, Susanoo and Chelsea who aid in the defeat of Dr. Stylish. Night Raid relocates to a new base east of the capital where they are formally introduced to Chelsea and Susanoo. During their time together, Chelsea often teases Mine.
Najenda informs the team of their newest mission, which is to assassinate the empire spy Bolic. Unfortunately, they can't do anything at the moment as the Jaegers are actively hunting them. Najenda develops a plan to lure them outside the capital and battle them head-on. On the day of the confrontation with the Jaegers, Mine notes how similar in looks Kurome is to Akame so she wants to spare Akame the pain of having to kill her sister only for her shot to be dodged. During the battle, Mine attempts to take out Kurome again only to be intercepted by Natala and Doya, the pair have an intense shootout with Mine coming out the victor. Mine is then swallowed whole by Kurome's final puppet, the Kaiser Frog. Blasting holes into the frog's body, she is safe from its stomach acids. Both units are forced to retreat after Bols uses his trump card.
Night Raid is posted in Kyroch preparing to finish the Jaegers, Mine is paired with Tatsumi. The pair is able to blend in with the population where Mine notes Tatsumi's grown. The group clashes with three of the four Rakshasa Demons head out to some ruins of the city leading to an extended stay in the city. A while later Tatsumi & Mine meet the leader of the Path Of Peace, The Lord who tells them to confess their love for one another instead of bickering. While gathering information outside some ruins, Mine and Tatsumi are ambushed by Seryu and Suzuka.
Tatsumi goes to confront Suzuka while Mine handles Seryu. In their second battle Mine tells Seryu that the irony of Seryu's morals, stating that although she claims to fight for justice, she is no different from any evil person. Mine plans to take her down without mercy. As they battled, she nearly destroys Koro's core, so Seryu has him transform into his berserker form. During this moment, Mine is momentarily defeated until she recalls her past as well as her memories of Sheele and Chelsea. As Seryu and Koro descend upon her, the surge of emotions allows her to unleash Pumpkin's trump card and bifurcates Koro as well as Seryu. Mine told her she made her mad which cost her the battle so Seryu's final act was to detonate the bomb inside of her body in a last-ditch attempt to kill Mine unfortunately, Mine is unable to finish Seryu due to Pumpkin being overheated. Mine attempts to escape, but due to her injuries, she cannot move far enough in time. The bomb detonates, which finally kills Seryu, and Koro and Mine is saved at the last second by Tatsumi.
A month after her battle with Seryu, she spots Tatsumi about to leave with Lubbock and volunteers to go with him. While investigating they once again meet up with the path of peace leader who sits down to talk with them. He tells the pair about how he came to power and Tatsumi tries asking him if he can sense human darkness. He admits that he can sense some darkness in some of the leaders but since they helped the organization reach as far as it has he has chosen to trust them. Before leaving, the path of peace leader casually comments that Mine and Tatsumi are closer than they were before and that they should treasure the moment.
The day before they attacked Bolic, Susanoo prepared everyone's favorite dishes. Mine received a strawberry parfait. Mine tries to offer Tatsumi some but he was too busy being distracted by Leone to notice her.
The team is split into two groups. One group who acts as a diversion and the other who has to assassinate Bolic. Mine is put into the latter. Afterward Mine and Najenda bath together and Najenda tries telling Mine that she should try to confess to Tatsumi before it's too late but Mine decides that it would be better to confess after the battle so that her will to live will be slightly stronger.
While riding the manta to the cathedral, the assassination team gets ambushed by Run who kills the flying manta that they were riding on. Run attempts to shoot the team down while they are still falling but Mine manages to graze him with her pumpkin while Akame blocked the feathers. After they land on the ground, they are attacked by Wave who is able to fight all three of them at once. Mine and Akame managed to escape from Wave while he is distracted by Lubbock. After getting a decent distance away Mine ambushes him and sent Wave flying, effectively taking him out of the fight.
Akame and Mine join the others, where Akame eventually assassinated Bolic. Mine was thrown through a hole in the ceiling along with the others. Several days later Tatsumi and Mine are saying farewell to Kyroch, where Mine tries to cheer Tatsumi up after Susanoo's death. Tatsumi tries asking Mine what she wanted to say right before the battle but she quickly changes the subject.
Several months later, Mine and Tatsumi are out hunting in the snow where she finally confesses her feeling to him however at first Tatsumi misunderstood her intentions telling her that he likes her too and that she's an important comrade. Frustrated at his obliviousness she forcibly grabs him and kisses him. Mine tells him that she began liking him after he saved her. She tells him that she was willing to let her go out with him and he should be grateful. He accepts her offer and they meet up with the others holding hands.
Back at their hideout Leone tries teasing Tatsumi but is soon interrupted by an angry Mine. Seeing as how she can't let him out of her sight, she will have to stay by his side.
On the night Jaegers fought with Wild Hunt, Night Raid attack Wild Hunt due to a flood of requests to take down Wild Hunt. Mine shot Cosmina from behind. As she was about to help fight Kurome and Run, Run ran away from the group, and Mine said that it felt like Run used his remaining strength to run away.
A few days later, Mine complains that Wild Hunt has yet to leave the palace, deeming them to be chickens. Tatsumi tells her that he is going to go look for them in the capital but since Esdeath is returning soon he can't go too close to the center of the capital. Mine asks Tatsumi if he did anything perverted with Esdeath to which he immediately denies but admits that she did kiss him. Mine caresses Tatsumi, telling him that she is going to make him forget all about Esdeath.
After receiving word that Tatsumi is being rescued, she attempts to rescue him on his own but is stopped by the remaining Night Raid members. Akame reminds her of what she said the first time Tatsumi was rescued but she still insisted that she was going to rescue him. The remaining Night Raid members agree to go with her. Mine agrees and tells them she has a plan to rescue him.
Right before Tatsumi is killed by Esdeath, Mine breaks into the palace and announces that she is here to rescue her boyfriend. Budo attempts to attack her but due to the extreme pinch she purposely put herself in she is able to blow him away and fight off Esdeath. During the fight, she manages to free Tatsumi from his restraints. While she and Esdeath argued over Tatsumi, Tatsumi activated Incursio and it went through another evolution. Tatsumi fought Esdeath with new found strength and soon Esdeath jumped up to dodge. Mine took advantage of this opportunity and fired a shot at Esdeath while she was still in the air but Esdeath used Mahapadma to avoid the shot. Before Esdeath had a chance to kill Mine, Akame attacked Esdeath to stop her. Soon after Leone joins the fight to protect Akame. After the four reunited, Budo returns vowing to execute all of them.
Akame begins fighting Esdeath with Mine backing her up asking Akame to trust her. Soon her focus shifts on Budo and avoiding his attack. Mine tries firing at Budo but he easily blocks her attack and Pumpkin begins to crack. When Budo tries charging at Tatsumi, Mine shouts out that she is going to use her trump card, distracting Budo and allowing Tatsumi to send Budo flying away. After escaping a worried Mine holds Tatsumi in her arms but is interrupted by a lightning attack from Budo. She is able to blast Budo away one last time, however, she used up all of her remaining energy to do so, resulting in her falling into a coma.
Later on, Tatsumi vows by her bedside that he will fight her share as well. Not long afterward, she is taken away by a member of the revolutionary army.
Sometime later, Tatsumi would return to Mine's side and wait for her to awake. Upon her awakening, it is revealed that she is pregnant with Tatsumi's child. Because of the mental and physical injuries they sustained during battle, Tatsumi and Mine retired from service and settled down away from civilization where they married and had a child.
Equipment and Skills
Mine wielded a powerful Teigu in the form of a rifle called Roman Artillery: Pumpkin, capable of shooting in three modes: sniper, machine gun and long barrel. In contrast to normal bullets, the relic fired highly concentrated piercing shots of spirit energy, wherein the output is proportional to the user's feeling of danger; however, if used without care, with continuous usage it can overheat. Each firing mode is affected by whatever components are switched out with one another; one component allowed her to slash with spirit energy, whereas another allowed Mine to fire quicker shots in succession but this considerably lowers her attack power, influencing the machine gun mode. Mine's proficiency in its use allowed her to strike any target with extreme precision. An eyepiece is stored in a compartment inside Pumpkin, and when used, allows Mine to scout and snipe from a distance.
She also appears to be quite adept in hand to hand combat, as she was seen sparring with Akame.
Her major weakness is that she leaves her back vulnerable to attacks, often spurring her other teammates to protect her last-minute; though she uses this to her advantage while using Pumpkin. This is first seen when she and Sheele are teamed up in a raid to exterminate a band of assassins.
