IKARU’s name comes from the Greek mythological anti-hero Icarus, who was the son of artist Daedalus. One day Daedalus made a pair of wings out of feathers and wax and gave it to Icarus, who then attempted to fly up to the heavens, only for the wax to melt away when he got too close to the son, which then sends the young man plummeting to his doom.
Unbeknownst to most people, Ikaru is a descendant of the mysterious half-mortal half-god species called the Nephilim. In the Bible book of Genesis during the early days of Man, the angels of God left their heavenly posts to marry the mortal women on earth, and between them spawned a being of unusual size and strength. Some time later God sent down the Great Flood to wipe out all humanity save for one righteous man Noah and his family. All living things perished in that flood, even the Nephilim. But few have managed to survive and have since lived in total isolation to avoid any unwanted attention from outsiders.
It is for this reason Ikaru has a pair of tiny wings, with the bloodline of the Nephilim in her body. Sadly the wings do not work and this has been a major source of sorrow for her.
Ikaru is often found sleeping because she drinks lots of booze which is her way of coping with her sorrows. And while she sleeps she has vivid dreams, some with deep meanings which she would later draw in her notebook which she calls it Dream Book. Ikaru likes to stay in her dreams because that is where she gets to fly with giant wings across the colorful dreamscape, and she can avoid facing the harsh gray realities of the waking world.
