Abe no Seimei is a character from Japanese legend and folklore who also appears in many modern works of fiction. The history detailed below is based in large part on the Wikipedia article about him, and his character and powers are inspired by Yojiro Takita's 2001 movie Onmyoji, in which the title character was portrayed by Mansai Nomura (who is also this character's PB). He appears here solely for the purpose of role-playing in Milliways Bar, from which no profit whatsoever is being made.

Miyazaki Akira, the AU Week version of Seimei, appears as a character from Ada Palmer's Terra Ignota series. As always the actor Mansai Nomura is his PB. He appears here solely for the purpose of role-playing in Milliways Bar, from which no profit whatsoever is being made.

Miyazaki Akira is Japanese by nation-strat and Utopian by choice. Like all Utopians they wear a silvery vizor and an ankle-length Griffincloth coat. Like everyone from their Earth they go by gender-neutral pronouns in polite company.

The vizor covers their face from hairline down to the bridge of his nose in the middle and the cheekbones on the sides. It has no holes for eyes, but Miyazaki can see the world projected on a heads-up display inside the vizor with perfect clarity. Their eyes, brown and almond-shaped, are projected on the outside of the vizor: they move and change shape and expression consistent with the real eyes underneath.

Miyazaki's Griffincloth coat is like a wearable movie screen, displaying their own personal fictional world - one that ranges between Japanese ornamental garden and deep woodsy wilderness. There are a few buildings in this fantasy landscape, such as old houses, small shrines, and secluded temples. Sometimes, creatures both real and fanciful will appear, peeking out from behind a cottage or darting between the trees. Everything in the coat has a very particular aesthetic.

A pale-green scarf wound loosely about Miyazaki's neck marks them as a sensayer, a spiritual adviser in a world where religion is strictly regulated.
