NORiE was released by an independent company known as Nimcone Tech as a new type of android “helper”, meant to plug into her owner’s computer and help them with whatever issues they had. They also programed NORiE to work without using her USB cord to accompany humans by doing what they could do; walk, talk, show emotion, store memories, and sleep. She was never meant to get into singing, but, if allowed out too often, she begins to copy her surroundings and act more “human-like”. However, NORiE also began to become sloppy with what she does when this happens—resulting in her making a mess rather than cleaning it up or, in a few rare cases, breaking the computer when trying to help.
Many people enjoyed her singing voice so much that they began to purchase their own for this reason but complained constantly about her mischievous ways. This resulted in a boost of interest in NORiE, but after listening to their customers, NORiE was discontinued as a helper, but was rereleased for the sole purpose of being a virtual singer.
NORiE is very curious and constantly wants to know more about the world—sometimes to points where she needs to be watched over like a small child. NORiE is also very friendly and playful and very much enjoys social settings. Though she has a kind heart, she also has quite a bit of an ego similar to that of a himedere, where she believes she should be treated like a princess and that everyone else is just a peasant of some sort. Once NORiE clicks with her master, she will not leave them no matter how horribly they treat her. In a sense, NORiE is like a pet, but a bit bigger and more human.
NORiE likes people, singing, bookshelves, boxes, going outside, animals, gardening, playing dress up, and sitting on other’s shoulders.
She dislikes being alone, being called Nori (“glue”), weather that isn’t sunny or windy, and food (because she can’t enjoy it with her human counterparts).
Her character item is a USB cord that plugs into her back
