Ike Eveland's introduction.

Ike Eveland's self-introduction on bilibili.

Profile

A Novelist from the past who seems somewhat closed-off.
When an idea for his next work sparks, he becomes a completely different person.[2]

Personality

Ike is a novelist with lots of hidden sides and undiscovered depths in personality. Generally, he's gentle, and mild-mannered, but he can be competitive when the situation calls for it.

Though he's usually the keeper of sanity and the calm member, he's been shown to be an unexpected prankster that makes jokes when people least expect it.

He has a seiso aura surrounding him, but he himself claims that he is not, by any stretch of the imagination.

He can be very bright and animated when talking about things he likes and quick to defend things he holds dear (e.g. caviar toast).

Ike is very supportive of his fellow NIJISANJI EN members, especially when it comes to musical endeavors and milestones. But in contrast, he doesn't usually celebrate his own milestones as he doesn't normally know what to do with them when they arrive quickly.

His fanservice moments are few and far between, but that only increases their impact when he decides to have them.

History

Background

On 18 June 2021, NIJISANJI EN opened two sets of auditions, one of which was specifically for male Livers. The male-specific auditions lasted until 1 August.[3]

On 17 December 2021, NIJISANJI EN announced the upcoming debut of its fourth wave "Luxiem", accompanied by a teaser featuring the new Livers' designs and voices.[4]

Ike's YouTube channel was created on 1 December 2021, and his Twitter account also created in the same month. His first tweet was made on 17 December 2021. However, Ike's Twitter account was restricted almost immediately after, causing the hashtag #FREEIKE to trend.

Debut

Luxiem made their debuts on 20 December 2021 (JST) as part of a special debut program hosted on the NIJISANJI EN channel, with commentary provided by Elira Pendora and Oliver Evans. Ike was the third of the group to debut. Afterwards, all five members of Luxiem appeared on the main channel.

Luxiem's first original song, "Hope in the dark", was released shortly after the program. This song was written and produced by ChibaNyan, who previously wrote and produced Ethyria's debut song "God sees all".[5]

  • His female persona's name is Ivy or Aiko (アイコ) in Japanese.[32]
  • Reimu Endou coined the name Eki Eviland in her Jump King collab in which he was chatting with her after he leans in to the mic and says "Balance is Restored." after she fell, and says that Eki comes out subconsciously and does the evil things after which Ike will not remember anything after he reverts back.
  • He is known for drinking sodas frequently, particularly Coke. In the past, he had an extreme addiction to Rockstar energy drinks, which he used to drink so often that he would sometimes collect the cans to spell words with them.
  • The marriage proposal habit of Luxiem fans originated from his karaoke after party stream where the Quilldren spammed ring emojis in chat as a declaration of war against Vox Akuma for Ike's hand in marriage.
