- "The new leader Aai is excellent. No more, no less."
- ―Bruno Marlon[src]
Aai Freezis was the second president of the Freezis Foundation and the grandniece of Shaw Freezis. Instrumental in expanding colonization of the New World, she was ultimately selected as the company's new leader in the wake of Shaw's death, working closely with Vice Presidents Bruno Marlon and Nob Nicole to expanding their business exploits.
Born a member of the Freezis Family some time in the 6th century EC, Aai joined the Freezis Foundation and helped develop her grandfather Shaw's massive business conglomerate. Following the discovery of Maistia in EC 592, Aai worked to expand the foundation's business into the "New World".
Change in LeadershipEdit
After her grandfather's death on October 17, EC 609, the elderly woman was selected to become the new foundation president the following month. Afterward, Aai charged her newly appointed vice presidents with helping manage the Foundation, tasking Bruno Marlon with handling the foundation's Evillious affairs while Nob Nicole was charged with overseeing the development of the New World.
During the ensuing months, Aai witnessed the two vice presidents argued over the foundation's policy repeatedly. Later on, Aai was scheduled to join Nob and Bruno with meeting the Lucifenian government at the Lucifenian Palace's Hall of Sounds on May 23 of EC 610 to discuss the New World's criminal activity before having a formal dinner in the Hall of Mirrors afterward.
Meeting in LucifeniaEdit
- "But wouldn't Bruno surely have more of a reason to target Nob's life?"
"We've seen Vice President Marlon makes some suspicious movements recently."
- ―Aai and Willus Zorach[src]
After arriving at the port town to Lucifenian in the afternoon of May 23, the three boarded a carriage and went to the Lucifenian Palace, entering the Hall of Sounds ten minutes before the meeting began around 3:50 PM. Aai immediately greeted President Julia Abelard while the two embraced. Once they were all seated and the meeting began, the talks continued for two and a half hours before finally ending. As the other officials all rose from their seats, Julia told Bruno and Nob to wait a little while since there was some time before the dinner.
As Aai prepared to leave the room to change for the soiree, a Justea unit burst into the room. Surprised, they listened while Officer Willus Zorach introduced himself and his partner Ayn Anchor before arguing with Bruno over allegedly pressuring their department to send them home. Afterwards, Willus explained to the assembly that Nob's life was being targeted, upsetting Aai. When Julia calmly asked if he had any basis for the claim, Willus revealed Justea had been secretly investigating Bruno.
Once the officer asked President Aai to confirm the friction between Bruno and Nob regarding the foundation's management, the old woman admitted they did before insisting there needed to be a stronger reason for Bruno to want to kill him. She then listened while the officer revealing Bruno had been sending manpower to Maistia despite the New World being under Nob's jurisdiction. Willus then described that Bruno's actions were seemingly an attempt to take over Nob's projects, something that would only be possible if he was expecting the fellow vice president to be no more.
After Willus told the assembly that Bruno's movements in Lucifenia and Elphegort were also suspicious, he pointed out that the Vice President had visited President Julia beforehand several times before adding that he had also been visiting the site of the black market Nob as attempting to eradicate. He finally admitted they believed Bruno was connected to Père Noël and considered Nob to be a threat to the organization. After the outraged Bruno argued they had no evidence, the Justea officer pointed out they had proof for a separate matter.
Officer Ayn Anchor then related Bruno's suspicious disappearance during the same time fugitive Kaidor Blankenheim had gone missing to the assembly, revealing the evidence that Père Noël's "Seventh Magician" had changed Kaidor's face to that of the real Bruno. After the officer asked Bruno to remove his shirt to confirm whether he had Kaidor's distinct twin dragon tattoo on his back, Aai and the others watched the downcast foundation executive remain silent. After Kaidor was arrested for his alleged crimes, the outraged Aai and Nob grew suspicious of President Julia's earlier meetings with Bruno, demanding she resign from office.
Personality and TraitsEdit
- "Keeps to just the glamorous business and doesn't turn her eyes toward the dirty work."
- ―Bruno praising his new boss[src]
Aai was a patient and business-oriented woman, dedicating herself to expanding the Freezis Foundation's various ventures. While proving herself diligent and hardworking, Aai readily indulged in the more glamorous aspects of her executive position, typically inattentive of the more potentially unsavory side of doing corporate business. Because of this, she put a great amount of trust in her vice presidents to help manage the Freezis Foundation both profitably and lawfully. She also detested Père Noël, naturally outraged to discover Bruno and Julia's apparent connection to the criminal organization.
Skills and AbilitiesEdit
Aai was a proficient businesswoman, able to contribute to the Freezis Foundation's extensive growth and be a major contributor to the development of the New World colonies. Despite her immense wealth and influence as the Freezis Foundation's president, Aai largely delegated leadership to her subordinates rather than manage much of the company herself. Aside from this, Aai was a capable diplomat and maintained a polite and friendly conduct while doing business.
Bruno Marlon: One of Aai's subordinates. Believing him trustworthy, Aai initially paid little heed to Bruno's secret black market dealings and trusted him to manage the Foundation's affairs, the two having a cordial business relationship. As a result, she was shocked and outraged by his revealed Père Noël connections.
Nob Nicole: One of Aai's subordinates. Believing him trustworthy, Aai trusted Nob to handle Foundation affairs in the New World and the two of them had a cordial business relationship.
Conceptualization and OriginEdit
- Aai's surname is possibly derived from the English word "freezing".
- While Aai is confirmed to be Shaw's grandniece, it is unknown whether she is descended from his elder sister Yukina or his younger sister Aile.
- Aai's name shares its romanization with the Vocaloid Kaai Yuki, the representative Vocaloid of Yukina.
