|“||That's not it. I'm not like you. I'm... different...||”|
Breanna Lucy Carter is the current female guardian of Ice, who has been in service for the past four years, serving Ghost_K since she was only fifteen.
Fighting and duty are the only things she has known as a result of a lost and shadowy childhood, which has led to her true feelings and thoughts being hidden, as she lives her life within a shell of a false personality that she protects herself with. Though she is a very skilled and powerful fighter, it will only be a matter of time before the pressure of life will cause her shell to break - and her life and commitment to humanity will fall into chaos.
| Spoiler warning!|
This article contains plot details about an upcoming episode.
To the citizens of Earth, and in the beginning Ghost_K themselves she is merley another Guardiun, but she is in fact an Urcron in human form. Sent by the urcron to gather information on the humans so that they can find out their weaknesses, and crush them.
She was found by Kai Oraski and Alex Rokard (during war times) wandering the ruins of a city recently bombed. She was the only survivor, but what was surprising to them was the appearance of this girl, green hair with brilliant, crystal clear eyes, unlike anything they had ever seen before. Though this minor detail was ignored mostly, they took her under their custody as a refugee, oblivious to the fact that to some thing, somewhere, things were going as it planned.
Remarkably around this time, a very top secret research project into extraterrestrial life and activity was performed covertly by ghost_k.
During her growth, she also demonstrated great elemental ability, and was taught martial arts (Taekwondo) from Alex to defend herself physically. She learned fast, and within a space of five years she was demonstrating normal human behaviour which was far above her age. All the time, Ghost_K was going out of their way to look for her identity. In time, Ghost_K decided to adopt her under their own care, seeing her elemental skill as extremley useful. With the retirement of the previous guardiun of ice, she was made a fully fledged member of Ghost_K
Breanna, at first sight can appear to be very serious, cold and basically emotionless, however she is in fact a very depressed, sad and confused person - keeping her true feelings only to herself due to the fact of her believing that nobody else understands her. She is subject to epileptic seizures and migraines.

Breanna is a socially detached and quiet but extremley emotional girl, who is very depressed and confused due to some very painful events that are occuring in her life.
I've really put in a lot of work into this girl - she's a result of my own depression and paranoia, and how it's constantly getting in the way of the events of my life. And annoying the crap out of everyone it seems lol... I made her a girl because most people would overlook a depressed guy.
Hiding the pain within herself
She can at first sight can appear to be very serious, cold and basically emotionless, however she is in fact a very depressed, sad and confused person - keeping her true feelings only to herself due to the fact of her believing that nobody else understands her. She lives within a shell that she hides within emotionally to protect herself.
She has no memory of any parents, possibly due to the fact of being traumatized because of losing them (the reasoning behind this will be disclosed in the comic), she has never experinced any real feelings of care in her life other than the other employees of Ghost_K and people she saves and interacts with in the outside world - all of which is generically shallow, mainly because of this shell she lives within.
She gains an extremley low sense of self-worth, as the person who mainly interacts with her, Alex Rokard (Legal guardian of her) has no sense of caring about him. All of which is rather peculariar and raises speculation as to what Alex's motives are. On top of this, breanna is constantly monitored biologically, having being run through many tests (often very painful and physically demanding). Only Alex and Nathan Sheppard (second in command) know of this, but even the rigiourous and uptight Nathan sees this as very wrong, and questions Alex's plans to himself often (all will be revealed in the comic what he does next)
Breanna gets a sense that "she's not like them" that she's "different", and comes to blaming everything bad that has happened to her on this single point. She becomes very depressed to the point where she purposfully insults herself and physicaly injures herself, seeing that she deserves this pain, and because it's the only emotion she has which drowns out her constant inner sadness.
Once the urcron invasion occurs, and the planet is onslaughted by aliens, the events turn dramatically. Everything gains emotion as the tensions get tighter.
Slowly, her shell begins to crack, and she starts to fall apart emotionally, losing all hope and sense of purpose. But only Alex knows what he wants to do with her - now that the shadowy "Aquila Lucius" phase has come into action...
Learning to smile
Then Lilly comes along
Lilly is a very social, emotional and caring girl, with a strong sense of right and wrong, and with a huge value on friendship. She instantly befriends Breanna, as well as everyone else within Ghost_K - as she is most comfortable with people, talking and having fun.
She stumbles across Breanna in a hostpital bed, very injured after a near-failed mission, and finds her crying. She creeps in and worriedly asks her what's wrong. This time however, breanna dries up her tears and pushes her away. But it isnt long before she opens up a little to Lilly, who is eager to listen.
The urcron invasion slows down to a near halt. In time, Breanna and Lilly become very close friends, Breanna learns to smile and to be happy, and to feel what it's like to WANT to be with people. On the event of Breanna's supposed birthday, nobody but Lilly actually remembers (after seeing some recorded data on her). She sets up a surprise party with the other members of ghost_k, and on that day they all overwhelm her in surpise.
Lilly gives Breanna a green crystal butterfly necklace as a present, exlaiming "Happy Birthday Breanna!"
Everyone was acknowledging her. Even alex was there (maybe he isn't so bad?) Breanna bursts into tears. And leaning onto Lilly, hugging her she uncontrollably mutters "I'm.. i'm so happy!"
The shattering, the tragedy
Breanna comes to hold onto this necklace dearly, it becomes somewhat of a symbol of hope and happiness to her.
Then the events begin to fall apart, with Lilly, and the other four within Ghost_K (Lilly, Mac, Jack and sometimes Nathan when he's present) try to keep order within the chaos around them, all the while protecting earth from the alien invasion.
The urcon invasion hits again, hard. Thousands die whilst Ghost_K and the military barley hold them off.
Alex's plans are coming into fruition (what are they? readers would think) drives the events he plans still. Nathan and Valdemar (norwegian associate agent who saves breanna in the beginning) try to stop him, but he is always one step ahead of them.
He pushes Breanna to her very Limit, eventually, alex mentions he wants to run a few tests (he knows that ghost_K knows who she is now), Breanna is happy to co-operate. She's hoping that one day urcron and humans will live in peace.
And Breanna's butterfly necklace shatters...
Then. It all changes... and it's Alex's Doing - And everything is turned upside down. Everything you know is only the tip of the iceberg.... Ghost_K is ripped apart, humanity walks the fine line between death and salvation...
Hold Your Colour by Pendulum - The lyrics going "hold your colour against the wall, when they take everything away". In her case, her "colors" are her humanity, she must hold it to herself, let nobody else take it, despite them taking everything away.
The words "She looked into your eyes, and saw what laid beneath", refers to Lilly helping her, and saving her from falling into hopelessness.
The part "don't try to save yourself, the circle is complete" can refer to alex using her - his feelings of superiority, intimidating his oppressors, and that Breanna has no hope to be human.
Relationships with other characters
Lilly Ashton - Learning to smile
Almost instantly, lilly establishes a friendship with Breanna. Soon enough she learns that Breanna is awfully depressed - and as a result goes out of her way to make her happy.
During the event of Breanna's birthday, Lilly almost excitedley gives Breanna a butterfly necklace as a present, as a token of their friendship, and that Breanna should smile more. She comes to holding onto it dearly.
|“||You know, in all my years of being a top playboy like myself... haha, kidding of course; i've realised this. If somebody still cares about you no matter how much you've hurt them, then never ever let them go. Sure they can be quirky, but they are one of the hardest people to find. Remember that Breanna, Please. Because I didn't. And I lost everything||”|
–Nathan, to breanna
- Breanna was initially inspired by Eureka from Eureka Seven, (spoiler warning) being half urcron half human, like Eureka is part coralian part human.
- She was originally designed to have ice blue hair and pink eyes, but that would have only made her far too much like Rey Ayanami from Neon Genesis Evangelion
- Despite trying to avoid issues with Rei, unintentionally her hair and eye colors are the same as Minami Iwasaki from Lucky Star, who has a very similar personality. This is a driving reason as to why she underwent recolouration for the sequel
- Her new version took ideas from Tsukasa Hiiragi and Minami Iwasaki, but most of it was my own ideas.
- Voice wise, I imagine her to sound like a more feminine version of Rei Ayanami, or Minami Iwasaki.
