Well the original gaming books characters are designed by more or less
(in)famous artists. Among those is Hirokazu Hisayuki the chara designer
for the Mai-Hime franchise ...
I guess the character in question is Claudette?
Well I don't feel any urge to view or read anything based on a game or
movie because most of these adaptions are a waste of time so I don't know ;)
