Kinuko is an average woman in her late twenties. Fairly inconspicuous, quiet and very conscious with regard to her personal privacy, she knows her way around the web and new technologies. That is why one of her main sources of income is working as an independent programmer/consultant. She is currently under contract to The Switch, which outsources some of its more complex coding to her online collective. She keeps largely to herself, the people that come to know her, usually through professional contact, find it difficult to state with any certainty what she is like, describing her as “hard working”, “intelligent” and “pleasant”.

She recently subscribed to a dating service, hoping to find a partner with similar interests and personality. This is where she meets Adam, she feels a connection and thinks about letting him closer.
