Mai-HiME Destiny (舞-HiME Destiny Mai-HiME Destiny?) is a light novel series published in Hobby Japan's monthly magazine, Novel Japan. It is an alternate universe story that takes place in a universe almost identical to the Mai-HiME anime and manga series in that it uses most of the same elements including character names (unlike Mai-Otome which changes names and locale) but with different characters and a different premise (HiME are absent and are instead replaced by MiKO and psychic characters). Currently five chapters have been released.
The series follows Mayo Kagura and Shion Tennōji and centers around MiKOs, girls with psychokinetic abilities. Many other characters from the My-HiME and My-Otome series make appearances.
The main character of My-HiME Destiny, Mayo Kagura (神楽 真夜 Kagura Mayo?) is a 15-year-old delinquent who transfers to Fuka Academy after being kicked out of seven different schools. She is an extremely powerful MiKO as well as a competent fighter. When in battle her personality becomes extremely dark; she also does not remember later on that she was in a fight, implying that she might have multiple personalities. She has the power of telekinesis.
Mayo is kept in a pair of handcuffs that severely limit her hand movement. The handcuffs are gold in color and said to be shaped like dragons biting their own tails. The handcuffs appear to be unbreakable, as other characters have attempted to force them off but were unable to inflict even slight damage. The handcuffs do not seem to hinder her daily life, mostly because of her telekinetic abilities. In chapter 4 it's revealed that she puts her shirt on with a kind of teleportation accomplished with superfast telekinesis.
Shion Tennōji (天王寺 詩音 Tennōji Shion?) is a MiKO with the power of retrocognition. Mayo insists that the two of them were good friends in the past, but Shion does not recall or believe this at all (despite Mayo knowing her name).
