Mei is the young lady in charge of the Portia Times. She mostly wanders the city scoping out scoops, sometimes whipping out her camera, but occasionally ventures into the outskirts. Mei works alongside Erwa.


Growing up in Atara, Mei had always wanted to be a reporter for the Atara Post. When she finally got in the door, she was sent to the poorly circulated affiliate Portia Times. Choosing to make some lemonade out of the lemons she was given, Mei set out to make the Portia Times a respectable newspaper.


Mei was born on Autumn of Day 11 in Atara. Mei had always dreamed of becoming a reporter for the Atara Post. As her first job, she finally pursued that career but was unfortunately sent to the lesser and poorly circulated affiliate, the Portia Times in Portia. Now, Mei vows to make the Portia Times a respectable newspaper.

Social talk
Erwa has me running errands for him today! Hmm, where can I find some Red Tea?
Have you seen a Mystery Man around town? I've heard people say he sells rare and beautiful items. I wonder if he'll agree to an interview?
I just got a news tip, can't tell you what it is yet, you'll have to read about it later.
News doesn't take a summer break, and neither do I!
