Makisa Kurisu - Steins;Gate
Since becoming the head of engineering, the responsibility of designing, producing, and testing magitek weaponry has fallen into Theresa’s lap. She has already begun to bear fruit, having made several prototypes that are in its beginning stages of testing. She frequently uses her inventions out on the field as the data collected is valuable and used to improve the prototypes and work out any kinks. All magitek weaponry designed by Theresa fall under a singular project - Project Proto.
[Root] is a powerful core installed into every piece of magitek weaponry designed by Theresa. Regardless of the core size, each core is fully capable of converting and absorbing the surrounding sillage into energy to replenish itself. However, the cores cannot be in use and replenish energy at the same time.
[Innotatus] is a small, watch-like device that is powered by two, miniature cores which are used to form the energy shield when activated. By all accounts, the shield looks like a normal, large shield except being a transparent blue color. However, this is simply because the initial state demands the least amount of energy from the cores. The device is very much capable of expanding into an all encompassing barrier that, with the user at the center, expands five feet from said user. It’s strong enough to withstand a certain degree of attacks, both regular and magical alike, before the cores end up depleted of energy. The more energy used for the shield, the more likely the shield will be able to hold up to strong attacks.
[Halo shields for reference]
[Ingratus] is a handgun that is powered by a singular core which is used to form energy bullets thus destroying the need for regular bullets. Though capable of making energy bullets, Ingratus’ uniqueness lies in its ability to infuse these bullets with the surrounding sillage. The resulting shot is a dangerous one, the bullet exploding upon impact as a testament to its volatile nature. However, doing so expends a lot of energy as its being used to make the bullet and infuse said bullet with sillage.
[Inaequalis] is the latest prototype designed by Theresa and hasn’t been tested outside of the control environment that’s her lab. However, in theory, the device should decrease the amount of sillage in a given area thus giving sillage users less energy which results in them being weaker. However, that’s the theory and it’s not ready for field testing yet.
Because her magitek weaponry can prove useless at anytime, Theresa does not go out into the field with just her prototypes. She carries her fair share of conventional items that range from tranquilizers to bombs.
Because of her lack of affinity towards sillage, Theresa has been trained extensively in hand-to-hand combat for her own sake. While she’s no master, her proficiency in conjunction with the devices at her disposal makes her a formidable foe capable of holding her own against any threat.

Theresa Starrk is born an utter disappointment, so much so that her parents didn’t even bother naming her. Born without a connection to sillage, the girl’s parents were disgusted to learn their daughter would never have any magical capabilities. Initially, the sillage obsessed couple cared for their spawn, holding onto the misplaced hope that she would prove everyone wrong and display some affinity towards sillage. However, at the tender age of five, she’s disposed of like yesterday’s garbage, abandoned on the streets of Ravanar to fend for herself. She isn’t expected to survive the crime riddled streets of Ravanar, but coupled with her determination to live and her unnatural intellect, she somehow manages long enough for someone to take pity on her.
That someone was Meredith Starrk, a renown scientist employed by the Weltschmerz. Removed from the streets of Ravanar, she is taken to Gaothaire - her new home. She is adopted and named Theresa Starrk and she spends the rest of her childhood within a loving home. Meredith nurtures Theresa’s mind, the child quickly showing an affinity towards making complex devices with the various items that she managed to get her hands on. It was obvious that Theresa had a natural talent as far as engineering was concerned and she was very much interested in chemical science - Meredith held that position.
As a natural result of her upbringing, Theresa Starrk quickly proves herself to be a master engineer and expert chemist, using her knowledge to invent a fair share of devices for Weltschmerz. She’s put under the engineer department, her mentor being Giselle Bell - the head of engineer. For three years, she worked underneath Giselle until several head positions were vacated. With the removal of the previous head of engineering, Theresa takes up the position as despite her expertise in chemical science, she was a better engineer and could easily be kept at the forefront - it also helped that she had been personally trained by Giselle.
Thus, at the age of twenty-two, Theresa Starrk is head of engineering and has decided to tackle the task of magitek weaponry as well as the various incomplete projects left behind by her predecessor.
