Calne Ca (骸音シーエ Karune Shii-e) is viewed as a derivative of Hatsune Miku, she was created by the 3D animator Deino. The term "Derivative" is used here to describe a fanmade Vocaloid character that is based on an already existing character.
Calne Ca basically is just a sort of casing in the shape of Miku for the mechanized skeleton Ca (Shii-e), a Deino's original character. There is some confusion about this character, but Deino explains on his homepage that Ca only in Miku cosplay is called Calne Ca. The bug on her head is also known to be her best friend. Her first apparition was in the lyric-less music video Machine Muzik and since then appeared in several PVs.
Calne Ca was recognized officially to Crypton, she has appeared in the Project Diva games in some of the backgrounds and skins.
During the Sapporo 2011 event, a projection of Calne Ca, much like the holographic projections used in Vocaloid concerts, was seen "dancing" while the artist Doppel was painting the Miku mural in the background.
Her name comes from kara (骸) and ne (音), as well as CA (シーエ), the chemical symbol of calcium. This is due to Calne Ca being a mechanized skeleton with a skin or casing in the shape of Miku.
Creatures that are frequently seen in videos accompanying Calne Ca are a walking skull called Chibi Cal-san (ちびカルさん), now officially known as Rubidium, it is the same kind of machine as Calcium. It doesn't have the body so its metal tendons are the only mobility it has as a head, sometimes skin placed is over the skull. Rubidium was recently given a humanoid form. Another character that commonly appears along with Calne Ca is the long-tailed creature called Magnesium (Mg) (人型Mg)., he also has a humanoid form.
Uploaded February 2, 2012 to Nico Nico Douga. Viewers interpret the song and video to be about a girl who is frequently the target of bullying by the students at her school. Over time, she becomes "poisoned" by all of their words, turning her into a "monster", that being Calne who is revealed at the end of the PV.
Although Calne Ca isn't an available character in the PSP game, Project DIVA nor in its sequels, she appears in some of the skins and backgrounds available for choosing.
A MMD model of Calne Ca was created by her creator, Deino. Deino also released a texture file for the model, allowing the model to look more like his cell-shade images. See the Calne Ca (Deino) page for details.
