Megurine Luka 
(巡音ルカ / Megurine Ruka

was the third Japanese Vocaloid2 from Crypton and released on January 30, 2009. Yū Asakawa (浅川 悠 / Asakawa Yū) provided the "cool, somewhat mysterious" character vocals.
Unlike previous mascots in the series, her costume is not based on a school uniform. Her design was made to be asymmetrical so she could look different from different angles.

Her design incorporates woodwind and brass instruments. The gold curl design on her chest mimics brass instruments and a circulatory organ. The blue jewel near her throat represents moisture in the air and water drops.
Her surname combines Meguri (巡, circulate or around) and Ne (音, sound), while the name Luka invokes the homonymous Japanese words of "nagare" (流, flow) and "ka" (歌, song) or "ka" (香, scent); thus making "songs to all around the world as scent spreads."

In Luka's user manual it is indicated that her units can enter various modes depending on external stimuli. One of these modes is Yandere Mode, where your Luka Megurine unit will attempt to destroy anything or anyone in sight.
