Welp, since no one seems to be kicking this off, I'll take the initiative and give my take on how I think Kyosuke gets along with the other humans just based on what I can see. Feel free to interject with debate on these as you all see fit.

Kyosuke's Relationships:


Sanae:

Kyosuke would likely be pretty indifferent to her, probably see her as a little weird seeing as she's a shrine maiden. Partly because he's not big on tradition, partly because he couldn't imagine a more boring role. Hard to say for certain anything more, since it's still a WIP. That said, it's impossible not to remember the name of someone who dresses like that - Well, if he'd ever bothered to learn it. Instead he just sticks to 'Miko-Girl' as it's far easier for him. His mother is big into the shrine mumbo-jumbo stuff, and probably knows Sanae, so she might know a bit more about Kyosuke than others from his mother.

Nao:

The school president is a bit of a mixed bag for Kyo. On the one hand, she's annoying and represents authority - being prim and proper. A little bit too goody-two shoes and 'perfect' for his liking, She's the kind of person that just sticks her nose into his business more than he prefers. Between harassing him for skipping school, failing to turn in work, to the various other troublesome activities he gets into, she's seen as a boring nag. To him, she seems settled in with the village, and he can't help but envy and spite that.

The flip side of that is he can't help but hold a begrudging respect of her. She just seems to have a plan for life and a direction. Someone who will actually be something, even if she is squandering it in a little town like this. When she's not being a dweeb and bugging him, she can actually be kind of cool too. By that, he means she's open to actually doing something out there like some basketball or some other activity that's actually fun. And if not, well, she's fun to rile up at the least. Loathe as he is to admit it, sometimes a sharp word from Nao is needed for him to pull his head in when his smart-mouth goes too far. He assumes that she finds him to be an absolute pain in the butt and a bully, and that's probably close to the truth. Maybe if she wasn't so unintentionally superior to him he'd accept her help and friendship more often.

Yukiko:

Who's that? Oh, the new kid. Kyosuke doesn't really notice the quiet people who don't bother him too much, and Yukiko would probably fall into that category. I mean, he'd probably have picked on the new kid at some point to protect his image, so no doubt she doesn't like him very much, even if Kyo himself doesn't have any real problem with her. Kyo would probably have the weakest relationship with Yukiko compared to the other teens, despite potentially having a few interests in common. Kyosuke's never been good around girls, and being more of an extrovert, it's unlikely he'd take much time to hang around the introverted otaku. Unless she's done some time in detention or gotten involved in one of his other interests, it's unlikely that he'd even remember her name.

Satogi

Satogi just seems like a big dork to Kyosuke, as he just seems like too plain and easy a target. And being a guy, he doesn't get the free-pass to avoid his bullying like the girls do. Kyo would likely pick on him verbally a little more than most, but aside from that, it's unlikely he'd do anything to harm Satogi unless he pushed his buttons the wrong way. If Satogi tried to be all buddy-buddy and make friends, that probably would've backfired pretty hard. That said, if Satogi's learned what a jerk Kyo can be, he'd probably steer clear of him, and Kyo would be content to leave things at that. Now, if Satogi could show some guts and maybe get involved with the sports rather than all those nerdy things, maybe they'd talk.

Izumi Nao's views on the other humans...
Feel free to discuss the relationships and tell me if you want to change anything :) Im open for most relationships so just fire on!

Image
Nobunaga Sanae
It's kind of hard thinking about a relationship between these two, since she is still a wip. I will maybe have to change everything. And feel free to shout if i got it all wrong! As a shrine maiden im thinking that Sanae has been living in Komorebi a long time? And i do think Nao and Sanae would know each other well in that case. Maybe they go way back? Nao's grandmother know someone in Sanaes family? Plus Naos grandmother is a fan of shrines and praying to the gods and that kind of things (she is very spiritual). So Nao would maybe consider Sanae as someone dear to her, a childhood friend? And someone who contributes to the little village.


Image
Orokawru Satogi
Same with Satogi, since he's been living in the village his whole life - Nao would be very familiar with him. Maybe they hang out a lot as kids. Satogis parents might even have left him to stay with Nao, her siblings and their grandmother a few times. But then i can see how they "grew apart". Nao would consider him harmless tho. I do think she would like his happy and positive traits, but his flirty and romantic side - not so much.. When they where kids - they used to play together in the forest. But now he just seem to stay indoors with this manga/anime stuff and go after girls (Nao is not included). She is confused however, if she should see this as an insult or a big relief.


Image
Kyosuke Andoh
Kyo would be a challange she's taken on. She would ofc play the role of school president -lecture him when skipping school and then stop by his house to bring him the homework and notes she's been taken during the classes. Really being stubborn as a donkey and nag on him with sharp comments. But that's just bacause she cares deep down. She do see him as a big troublemaker and it gets on her nerves from time to time... Gaah, he just pisses her off. Sure, he can be angry about having to stay in Komorebi - but he don't have to take it out on the other kids.. Someone has to put the foot down. But whenever he do show up att school, and mainly attend the gym classes (sports) she actually enjoys his presence. Finally someone who likes physical activities as much as she does. Nao can get a bit too competitive sometimes tho...


Image
Yukiko Nakahara
Yuki is the new girl. Nao think she is quite...wierd... to be honest. But she is still trying her best to get to know her / be friendly and its her role as a school president to make her feel welcomed and help her out with academics if she find it hard. When back in the village, Yuki do seem to prefer stay indoors and alone. But Nao has seen her in the forest from time to time, and Naos grandmother would probably be eager to tell Yukiko the tales of youkai since she seems fascinated. Nao would just observe from distance, and she has not yet decided on what she thinks of Yuki.

@nosyfatguy

The way I see it, Mikado and Chiyoko might know each other. As I understand it, Mikado wants to control the 'underworld', something which Chiyoko has a lot of influence over. Mikado could see Chiyoko either as an invaluable ally or an enemy, or perhaps both, if he really wants to gain control. As far as Chiyoko would see him, she likes him as a Youkai, but isn't super-fond of him as a person. Chiyoko doesn't mind sharing power at all, as long as Mikado isn't simply looking to extract benefit and is willing to work with Chiyoko if called upon.

Your thoughts, Nosy? I suppose it could be possible that the two of them have not yet met face-to-face and their relationship could be established within the roleplay, like, they have an idea of who each other are, and Mikado could act as he like. Whether Chiyoko views Mikado as an ally or an enemy is entirely dependent on him. So what about his views?

Orokawru Satogi, Relations







Izumi Nao: Satogi knows Nao from their past, having fun as kids and playing around the village. Sleepovers were fun with her family, even though she never seemed to return the offer at his place. Maybe it was all the candy that she didn't like in his family's shop, but who knows. In more recent years they have grown apart, hardly speaking at all unless it's for school. He looks up to her though, as a respectable student and an intelligent individual. He has known her so long that he never really thought of her in a romantic light, although her beauty has not passed him by.

Nakahara Yukiko: Only within the last few months has Satogi been noticing the new girl in the village. So far he heard her name from some of his acquaintances around the school, who were talking about the "cutie fresh from the city." He instantly became interested but would let his imagination get the better of him until he actually got to see what she was like. She was a little different than his daydreams, being more of an introvert. They have a shared interest in exploring the forests and artistic values but they are still little more than strangers. Over time Satogi hopes that this will change.

Kyosuke Andoh: In contrast to Satogi, Kyosuke is a brash and negative person. Although they are close to the same age both are unable to find coherency. Satogi has tried to be nice on several occasions, but Kyosuke seems to want nothing to do with him. So far, all their interactions has ended in verbal violence or a dead stare. The only thing Satogi and Kyo agree on is to avoid each other whenever possible. The rare moments when they share classes is spent paying attention to anyone or anything else. Satogi wouldn't mind patching up their relationship but if that cant happen he is fine with leaving it well enough alone.

Nobunaga Sanae: Another childhood friend of Satogi, Sanae has been a blessing (no pun intended) to him and his family. The other shrine attendants have taken Satogi in when his mother and father were out of the village, so him and Sanae have had plenty of time to talk together. While Satogi was growing up into a teenager his time at the shrine became less constant, but he still visits around once a month for prayers and to see people he knows including Sanae. Usually his prayers center around girls or catching fish, but his simple requests are still accepted by the shrine.
You know that feeling when you realize you made a terrible mistake? Your about to feel that in a second or two.

Izumi Nao — A childhood friend! Nao's grandmother is also very fond of Sanae. She likes Nao because she likes nature, and so does Sanae (though she is especially fond of bugs). Her life was never exciting, as being a shrine maiden and living in Komorebi all her life, but I suppose Nao and Sanae could have been on a few childish adventures together as children.

Orokawru Satogi — Sanae knows him as a close friend, since they stayed together a lot whenever his parents were away or busy. She anticipates his visits to the shrine nowadays since they're less frequent, and she always has a story to tell him when he does show up.

Yukiko Nakahara — She still doesn't know much about Yukiko, since she's relatively new. Despite this, she's always trying to strike up conversations with her and be her friend, and she does so by introducing her to the cats by the shrine. They met one day at school (after bumping into each other), and Yukiko had apologized an awful lot, but Sanae assured her it was okay, and from then on she really wanted to befriend her. She likes to ask Yukiko about her otaku stuff and sometimes she even asks Yukiko to show them to her sometimes.

Kyosuke Andoh — Sometimes, he seems a little scary. She's aware he doesn't want to be here (rather, most of the village knows he doesn't want to be here!), and she's a little sad about that, because she loves the village. Despite this, she is always still trying to be friendly to him, and whenever he calls her 'Miko Girl,' she reminds him that her name is Sanae.


Image
Image

Sanjakubō Kurama — First and foremost, Susumu appreciates Sanja at a physical and superficial standpoint. He thinks he's awfully pretty and for this reason and purpose mostly, he likes to trail after him and share his riddles with him. He often even tries his 'wagers' with Sanja in the form of either his eyes (which are arguably his best feature, to Susumu) or a night out, and whether or not he refuses does not deter the kitsune.

Miyako Moremeril — He doesn't have much of an opinion of her just yet. He sees her around sometimes, but they probably haven't interacted much.

Mikado Sarubi — Ah, this one. The two of them, at one point, were comrades together. They were by each other's sides through thick and thin, though now they aren't like that anymore. Currently, the two are akin to rivals. Susumu, especially, loves toying with the likes of him.

Tsuyari Kazukai — The both of them are kitsune! He gets along with her just fine, and is probably pretty fond of her. He might give her piggyback rides sometimes and treat her like a little sister. He's also probably super protective of her, as well, regardless of how she feels of him.

Chiyoko-Danuki — She doesn't seem to like him or his kind much, so naturally, he dislikes her right back. He likes to taunt her a lot.

Tsutsurugi — tba.

Ryuunosuke — Susumu thinks he's a stuck-up prince, and that's that.


Image
Image

Sanjakubō Kurama — Tengu and Oni are alike and different, so Ryuunosuke tries to get along with him. He rather likes Sanja, regardless of how Sanja might feel about him. (more to be added)

Miyako Moremeril — tba. (pm to establish)

Mikado Sarubi — tba. (pm to establish)

Tsuyari Kazukai — Since she appears as a child (despite him knowing she is not one), he is rather fond of her, though not to the extent that Susumu is. Should she ever bound up to him, he will greet her with a soft smile and kind words, which is admittedly very rare for the Oni prince.

Chiyoko-Danuki — tba. (pm to establish)

Tsutsurugi — He's very fond of Tsutsurugi, the other oni is a loyal servant to Ryuunosuke. In the beginnings, Tsutsurugi tried to be too stiff and formal with him, as his family raised him to be a suitable servant and protector to Ryuunosuke, but since they were around the same age, Ryuunosuke really just wanted a friend. Thus, they became rather close!

Susumu — Ryuunosuke thinks him a rather frivolous creature, and he isn't too fond of him. This is especially since he's aware that Susumu thinks he's just a spoiled brat.


{ let me know if you want anything changed, and pm me if you want to establish more or build off of it! }

@Lyold999 Yeah, he sees her as a important piece to gaining control over the Underworld, he's heard about her 1 or 2 times. I think it'd be quite progressing to see the 2 working together. So the answer to your question would be yes i do think we should progress their relationship in the rp. ^.^

Chiyoko-Danuki and her Relations to the Community.



Ryuunosuke: Chiyoko isn't fond of this guy at all, and takes just about every opportunity she can to belittle and crack jokes about him, assuming he's not listening. Although Chiyoko isn't acquainted to him personally, she is convinced that this prince represents all she dislikes about the elite; distant, self-righteous, unsympathetic oppressors who force their whims upon the masses in their own interest of keeping up an illusion of order. She's played pranks on him from the shadows on more than one occasion. In a way, they are like rivals in a gentlemen's duel.


Susumu: Another person Chiyoko doesn't like, but this is just on a personal level. Her family line has had a grudge against Kitsunes for a long time, Danzaburou-danuki being famous for the cruel pranks that are the reason why Kitsunes never go to Sado Island. As for Susumu in particular, Chiyoko makes it a point to never be in her male form in his presence, ever since one regretful incident. Nonetheless, she plays along with his riddles, as she's not one to show weakness in a battle of wits or manners.


Sanjakubō Kurama: Again, Chiyoko's not fond of supreme authorities like Daitengu, but, she doesn't have any real beef with this guy. He does indeed care for his fellow Youkai, although she isn't particularly find his controlling nature and his artificial means of maintaining 'order' to be particularly tasteful. Still, the two do have history. As gossip, Chiyoko enjoys telling the story of the Daitengu that had once set his sights for her heart, 'a million years ago, when the world was young'. Chiyoko mainly avoids him now, but wouldn't mind sticking around to tease him if the opportunity presented itself.


Miyako Mormoril: Chiyoko knows the Jorogumo very well, being a regular customer at her bar who knows just about all of the other regular customers. She frequently socializes with her, although she's shown the girl many of her personalities and forms, so she's convinced that the Jorogumo knows that there's much more too her than the nice old lady she is. Chiyoko trusts Miyako with a few of her secrets (not her age, of course) and also lets her in on some of her schemes and shadier deals. [@Lostsoulbleed Would Miyako let Chiyoko smoke inside the bar?]


Mikado Sarubi: He's someone who's name has only popped up a few times. He had come and gone and then came once more. From what she understands of him, it's that he is ambitious, and ambitious Youkai were to be made wary of. Chiyoko hasn't met his acquaintance yet, but, is looking forward to have a smoke with him and greet him as a fellow citizen . Whether she's willing to work with him 'professionally' or not all depends on him.


Tsuyari Kazukai: Although Chiyoko's family line has a grudge against Kitsune, Chiyoko doesn't have any personal grudge against this one like she does to Susumu. Indeed, she remains kind and retains good manners, but, she can't help but tease the girl every time she sees her. One aspect she can't help but tease about is the fact that she retains a human form most of the time, as she teases a lot of Youkai who regularly pretend to be humans. Chiyoko believes that Youkai should be proud as Youkai.


Ki: [TBA]


Tutsurugi: Just a dog of the elite who's doesn't have enough pride to be feral. Chiyoko finds it rather unfair that Oni take up much of the upper castes of society while Tsukumogami and other kinds of Youkai aren't even part of the serving caste.


Shohei: Chiyoko doesn't typically interact with a lot of tengu, as they're rather inaccessible compared to many other Youkai (despite being very social amongst themselves) but they do make for very useful allies. Chiyoko neither admires nor dislikes Shohei and is willing to be civil should they ever meet.

Rika: A friendly person of the community who loves to be spoiled, which Chiyoko will indeed do. Of course, Chiyoko's more than willing to turn a blind eye toward any mischief the Bakeneko pulls (unless she herself is wronged, of course). Chiyoko encourages her to simply do what's natural, as it's what makes every Youkai unique.

Hakuryuu: [TBA]

These are some ideas I had about how Shohei might interact with the other yokai, just from reading the character sheets. I'd definitely like to discuss it more, and will happily change anything or forge some deeper relationships. Let's talk! :D

Ryuunosuke – The only yokai around who can maybe rival Sanjakubo in power. He's an excellent swordsman which Shohei respects, but aside from that … he seems like he could do with being taken down a peg or two, but Shohei knows he isn't the one to do it. He holds no ill will to the Oni Prince, since Sanja doesn't seem to mind him. However, he is aware that he could be a potential enemy and keeps his eyes open around him.

Susumu – Finds himself strangely attracted to this kitsune. He would really like to spend time with him, and yet … Susumu is always flirting with Sanja-sama! Shohei is both annoyed that Susumu never pays attention to him like that yet, and also fears that Susumu might capture the boss's heart and take him away from Shohei. He is extremely jealous and will do his best to make sure Sanja doesn't fall for Susumu's charms.

Sanjakubo – Shohei's superior. He will do what it takes to make sure Sanja's wishes are carried out, and is both respectful and deferential to him in a way that seems almost out of character. They share a dark sense of humour, though Shohei doesn't understand why he respects the humans so much. Sometimes he feels like he needs to protect Sanja from himself and his own curiosity.

Mikado – He feels nothing but loathing for this creature. As far as Shohei is concerned, he is lower than a human. Mikado once ticked one of Shohei's precious artefacts out of him, a Yato mirror, which he then sold on the black market. In revenge, Shohei plucked out one of Mikado's eyes. He managed to look through the eyeball but found out that the mirror had already been sold. He often gloats about Mikado's lost eyeball, and occasionally jokes that he wants to take the other one... in fact, he would dearly love to. He goes to lengths to avoid having to interact with this thing, which he finds offensive. Roadkill shouldn't be up and walking around.

Tsuyari – Tsuyari brings Shohei little gifts of shiny things, which has endeared her to him. Because of this, he looks on her fondly, though he still thinks of her as a child. She seems to be a (mostly) harmless creature, and quite passive when it comes to physical activity but she's not one to keep her mouth shut if she has something to say, and he admires that.

Miyako – He enjoys her sense of humour, and she is undoubtedly fun to be around, but something about her makes his skin crawl – the knowledge that she is a spider is never far away. He is wary of her, and feels that he could never understand her. Perhaps she is smarter than him, and he doesn't like that.

Chiyoko – He doesn't understand her yet, she has too many faces and personas. She seems clever and reasonable, and unlike Shohei she understands modern human society, and that could be useful to him.

Tsurugi -

Ryuunosuke – He doesn't paticullary like the bastard, but instead forces himself to like him. Afterall, he is a great partner to have for business and protectional reasons, though Mikado can't help but to dislike the man maybe he is a geniune guy but so far what he's shown is pure cockiness and a attuide he dislikes.

Susumu- The man he single handedly dislikes most on this planet, Susumu. Previously good partners and good friends at that, but now Mikado can't see what he saw in the man. He's just a plain old sadist, which Mikado can say very little of. But still bares hate for him.

Shohei- Another worm, he doesn't take very kindly too. The man who ruined all tengu for him, also ruined his eyesight. Though Mikado will often try to kill off this character by sending foes his way, the man always emerges victories. Like some pesky cockroach that won't die. Though in exchange for his eye he obtained wealth from selling The mirror he cheated from Shohei, was it all worth it?

Sanjakubo- Another Tengu scum, though he doesn't bare any true resenment too him, he can't help but think badly of him because of previous experiences. He's heard of the man one or two times, and shares but one common ideal with him humans are interesting.

Miyako- Mikado has been visiting this women alot in her bar lately, they share a common smoke and drink together, she after all is his favourite hostess. Though he does think rationally when interacting with her, she's mastered the art of seduction after all.

Tsuyari- Nothing more then a girl, of course he knows the she's probably much older then he is he still treats her as nothing significant. He bares ill will towards her, it's just she's nothing really been of importance to him therefor being useless (In his matters atleast.)

Chiyoko- He takes this women very seriously, as a potential business partner. He's heard of her influence and power over the underworld, and wishes to harness it and potentially ally himself with her. Mikado plans to invite her to the bar sometime and discuss more about these matters.

Susumu: Truly an annoyance. No matter how often Sanja threatens this Kitsune, he refuses to heed his warnings and tries to make wagers and take him out on dates. Honestly Sanja has no idea why Susumu has so much stock in him, why should the trickster, the annoying riddler, even bother? Though he'd NEVER admit it, he'd die first, he has a soft spot for Susumu, only Susumu and no other Kitsune. Sadly, this handsome fox has wormed his way into Sanja's heart over the years, even though he protests his appearance in his domain each time.

Ryuunosuke: A Royal Oni, honestly Sanja feels as though he is above Ryuu as Sanja is Divine. However Sanja does indulge the prince on occasion when he throws parties, Sanja will usually attend, thinking it his duty as a representative of the forest and the mountain, he takes pride in his title and genuinely has fun at the parties of the prince when invited.

Shohei: -- Truly an esteemed member of society. Such grace and duty! Perhaps Sanja only thinks such of the boy because he is a fellow Tengu. In actuality he does appreciate Shohei's efforts to aid him in his whims and desires. In return when Shohei visits the mountaintop he gives him a place to sleep and food to eat. They get along quite well, birds of a feather as it were. . .

Miyako: On the rare occaison when he has seen her, he keeps his distance. He could subdue her with his power but he'd rather not as she doesn't really bother him too much. He is simply wary of her and her kind. A wise man once told him to never allow a spider to build a web in your home. So, whenever any Jorgumo tried, he'd chase them out.

Tsuyari: A lovely creature indeed, however she is Kitsune and because of this she isn't to be trusted. Although on various occasions he has exchanged words with the young kitsune. Often trying to advise her as he knows best of the area, for he has been here longest along with only one or two others. Unlike the elder Kitsune he is more lenient with her than others, more willing to speak to her as he thinks he can still mold her to be useful to him and his territory.

Chiyoko: Yes. . . The Tanuki. . . She is quite the specimen. He finds her to be quite endearing and too much to keep track of. There was a time when he was infatuated by her, about three hundred years ago when Chiyoko was much younger. He even pursued her a bit, admiring her free spirit, longing to crush it under his feet. However he realized it was pointless to try to contain a wildfire like her and he gave up. He still has a soft spot for her however and would never turn her away if she needed his help. Even if he is bitter about never succeeding in winning the trickster over.

Ki: The gift of his precious forest. A spirit came to life from one of his trees and they were beautiful. Still quite young for a yokai, Sanja immediately took them in and decided this was his greatest duty to his forest. To teach and raise them as his own. The wide eyed youth of them is truly refreshing for Sanja and he intends to do his best to tutor and care for Ki. A bit of his own youthful curiosity comes to light around them and he feels as if he can be more like himself with them. He also feels as though this is how the mountain blessed him for all his centuries of diligent service. He now believes if he does well with Ki, maybe he'll be gifted more "children" to stave his loneliness away.

Tutsrugi: wip

Mikado: On occaison Sanja has attempted to lure the dangerous Gashadokuro to his temple on the promise of knowledge. This was simply so that the large yokai did not decide to devour Sanja. However Mikado's distaste for Tengu has made it difficult. Sanja's goal where he is concerned is to form an alliance, although he fears it to be an empty goal. Though if Mikado's thirst for information ever became dire enough, perhaps. Sanja waits patiently for that day and minds his own business as after all he has a large responsibility in maintaining his home.

Hakuryuu: A dragon born of a river from his own mountain. Sanja views Haku as a dear friend. One of his only friends, whenever Sanja chooses to visit the western edge of his domain, he is greeted by Hakuryuu's and an old friend. Sanja will happily gift the dragon with rice balls, with pickled plums from Sanja's own kitchen. A very rare gift for anyone, thus proving how dear the dragon is to him.

Nobunaga Sanae

"She's so energetic...and she's interested in learning about mangas and stuff..." Sanae is a mystery to Yuki. She doesn't know how to handle her, as she hasn't met a girl like her since she was young. Sanae noticed her manga when she bumped into her in the hall, and ever since she's brought some to show her, mostly about Youkai, namely Kitsune (Kamisama Hajimemashita, Inu x Boku, etc) as they are quite popular in the manga culture.

Izumi Nao

"....She helps me out with schoolwork, but I feel like a burden." Yuki finds Nao to be nice enough, however she often suspects it is only because of her responsibility to be nice as president, even so, Yukiko is comfortable pretending it's genuine, ignorance is bliss after all. As the new kid in such a close-knit community, she knows that no one really has much of an opinion of her, so she doesn't overthink it too much. She has asked Nao a few questions about homework at school, but aside from that she hasn't really spoke to her that much. Even though Yuki feels that Nao is a nice girl, she has not yet recovered from the bullying at her previous school and is wary of opening up to other girls more than anyone.

Orokawru Satogi

"U..Uhm... He's a guy I've met...?" Yuki has developed a slight crush on Satogi, having met him in the woods one day after school by happenstance. They had a brief conversation, and she developed a crush rather quickly due to his warm and bright presence. Well aware that her feelings are based on his looks and only one or two interactions, Yukiko doesn't let herself get too carried away, but she will steal a glance at him around school. Her crush does make getting through the day much easier. She just hopes that no one has noticed or told him. She is content just seeing him around school and having a conversation now and then when they happen to cross paths exploring the forest.

Kyosuke Andoh

"Ugh..." Yuki does NOT like that guy. If possible, she completely avoids him. While she spent most of her time trying to be invisible, he still managed to occassionally give her a hard time. From her experience in her previous school, Yuki completely ignores his remarks, and him entirely at school pretending she doesn't even hear him. She tries to overlook him, as he is one of the only ones who cause her any trouble, but she does worry that things will return to how they used to be at her last school.

Sanjakubo Kurama

"Rōjin-sama..? Etto.. I suppose he's nice enough, and wise enough to be wary of Kitsune. I respect his suspicion, it's best to not hand one's trust out too freely. He knows quite a bit about the forest as well, and has proven to be an indespensible asset many times." Though his arrogance sometimes irks Tsuyari, she can often overlook it, especially when he gives useful information and help. Despite knowing he does not trust her, she has nothing against him for it, as she feels the same way, "His company is pleasant most of the time. I sometimes trade him fish for information. A fox and a bird, it's kind of unnatural, but I suppose we've managed to get a long far better than I ever thought possible."
Note: Rōjin means aged person/old man.... XD

Mikado Sarubi

"...He's far too violent.... I don't like him very much..." Though she'd never admit it out loud, Mikado frightens her quite a bit. Admitting a Youkai that is around three hundred years her junior would be a lot of damage to her pride and reputation. However, as Tsuyari is not very conflictive, she tends to avoid Yokai like Mikado whenever possible because they scare her. She does not like cruelty, nor does she like the rumors that she has heard about him. She heard somewhere that he eats other Youkai! Too afraid to ask him about the rumors herself, she simply assumes the rumors are true and avoids talking to him whenever possible, without rudely running away from him that is, "Do I have to talk to him...?"

Susumu

"Susumu-sama... He's always been kind to me, but I cannot say the same with how he handles others." Tsuyari does not agree with her fellow Kitsune's methods and hobbies, but he is the only Kitsune she knows well enough to converse with on a regular basis. Being around one of her own kind is soothing, but also makes her miss her family that was murdered in front of her as a child. Her favorite thing about Susumu is listening to his riddles, but she can't say that she can answer many of them correctly. Still, she enjoys them because they are quite witty. Despite her fondness for Susumu, Tsuyari will not hesitate to abandon his company when his mischief and violence comes out to play, "We're both Kitsune, but we couldn't be more different... I respect him, but I do not agree wth violence... "

Ryuunosuke

"Ouji-sama? He seems kind and he looks the best when he smiles! ....Oh? You've never seen him smile?" Tsuyari spends most of her time alone, so she is unaware that the smile she has been so accustomed to seeing occurs very rarely, "He's arrogant, kind of like Rōjin-sama... but he's a prince, he was raised to be that way... I just need a break sometimes..." She envies Ryuunosuke more than anyone else. As a prince, his life has been the exact opposite of her own. She lived on the streets most of her childhood, so he is a walking reminder of everything she lost and will never have. While she is very jealous, Tsuyari respects his position as a prince, and enjoys his company more often than not. Despite seeing Ryuunosuke as a pleasant person to kill time with, Tsuyari has heard rumors that Oni are able to strip a kitsune's spirit away, so she is careful around him, always. That doesn't mean he is exempt from her blunt statements.

Chiyoko-Danuki

"Ugh, Tanuki-Rō fujin! She's always picking on me!" Tsuyari doesn't hate her, in fact it's quite the opposite. Though when Chiyoko is not poking around at Tsuyari's preference, she finds that she enjoys the Tanuki's presence. She doesn't feel obligated to be hostile toward her just due to being different species of Youkai. Due to the fact that she does not realize Chiyoko is extremely close to her in age, Tsuyari calls her Rō fujin (old lady) "She is very pleasant to be around. None of her pranks are harmful though...Are they?"

Shohei Oyama

"Karasu-San? Oh, I'm older than him! Also, like some of the others he's very violent too..." One of his redeeming qualities in her eyes is that he doesn't get in the way of her naps nor has he hurt anyone that matters to her. So far she doesn't seem him in a bad light, despite his knack for violence. Whenever she visits Sanja, she does her best to bring Shohei a present, whether he wants one or not. Usually it's simply a coin of human currency she finds, but at least they are shiny, "Birds like shiny things like coins, right?"

Miyako Mormoril

It may be petty, but Tsuyari is not very fond of spiders so she is not very interested in Miyako. While she treats her like anyone else when approached, Tsuyari can't help but feel goosebumps knowing that Miyako is one large spider demon. The small ones give her nightmares, but one that's actually taller than her? That's more than Tsuyari wants to think about, "Spiders give me the creeps... e.e"

Ki

As Ki is a Kodoma and Tsuyari is a Wind element Youkai, Tsuyari feels protective of Ki as trees supply oxygen and the flow of clean air is what gives Tsuyari the energy she needs to survive. Whether or not she 'trusts' Ki is irrelevant, as Tsuyari has spent most of her time in the forest and thus she wishes to see it protected. After she saved Ki from a few of the village children attempting to carve into her host tree, Tsuyari returned with Shienawa rope she stole from a shop, tying it around Ki's host tree in order to prevent children from attempting to deface it again, "Ki needs to be protected, and I suppose I'll do it if no one else is around, even though I hate violence.... They are a young youkai of the forest, and it's our job to protect the young Kodama from harm... I will help them if they're in trouble, they let me sleep in their host tree when I have no where else to go so it's the least I can do..."

Re: [Youkai Street] Relationships

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Tanman on Mon Aug 29, 2016 10:35 am

As always, these are just a guideline for my expectations. Feel free to refute or debate them as you wish, gimme a holler and we'll establish something more concrete.

Rika Nekonyankoo's Relationships


Ryuunosuke:

"Like, Meow! A prince? I bet he has a TON of money! Ooo, I hope I get to meet him! Or rather, meet his treasury. Heh heh heh... Shh, don't tell anyone but I'm planning to rob him. He'll either succumb to my feminine feline flirtation, or I'll wait for him to leave and swipe it right under his nose!"

Susumu:

"Ooo, I hear he likes games and riddles, he sounds like so much fun! We could play tag, or or um, he could try to trick me, and then I'll trick him, and when I win, I'll take all of his money! I hope he likes me, and I hope I'm good at his riddles. I'm good at lots of things, and they don't call me Rika Riddle-Ruler Nekonyankoo for nuthin!"

Sanjakubō Kurama

"I love birdies! Well, the ones that fit in my mouth. He doesn't like it when I do that, but I think he's cool anyway! I'd say he dislikes me, but who could resist my face? Though he is a bit of a bother since he won't let me near anything in the shrine... And he got real mad that day I stole his delicious, mouthwatering fish... Ooo, I need some more of that... I wonder if he'll notice if I climb along the ceiling..."

Miyako Mormeril

"It's the Booze lady! Oh man, there was this one time where I stole like, a whole bottle of her stuff and I... I don't really remember much after that, but ever since then she won't let me back in the bar. But that's okay! It's way too big for her to watch every entrance, so I slip in all the time. People say I should be careful in case she eats me next time, but she should totally be more afraidy-cat of me!"

Mikado Sarubi

"Ohhhh, is that the guy I've seen fishing? I dunno if he's noticed me stealing his catches, but man were they good! Mmmm-mmmm. Maybe one day he'd like to talk about fish. I know lots about fish. Like, how they taste good. And uh... They're yummy! I'd tell you more but uh... My stomach is rumbling... "

Tsuyari Kazukai

"She's littler than me! I finally get to be someone's big sis! I haven't spoken to her yet or seen her much but I bet she'll like me! Ooo, this is going to be so much fun! We'll play dress-up, and I can show her my money pile! It'll be great! I can't wait! "

Chiyoko-Danuki

"I hear the old lady is super fun loving like me~! Maybe she can show me all the cool things in town, then I can nab them! Oh, and maybe she knits cause she's old! If someone in this town has yarn, I think I might die of happiness... Eeeeee~! "

Tutsrugi

"I think he looks after the prince guy? Laaaammmmeeee, that means he probably guards the good stuff. I hope he's stupid. That way it'll make my time a whole lot easier, heh heh heh..."

Ki

"They seem pretty gullible. So I like 'em. Much easier to get into the big-birdies home when they're in charge! Not to mention they listen to me and how my day went, and let me lounge around in their tree. There's nothing to pinch, but that means we can hang out for fun!"

Shohei Oyama

"This guy... Ooo, if I could find where this birdy keeps his shinies I'd have merchandise to line my store for weeks! Gimme gimme gimme~! I've been secretly spying on him to try and find it, but he's a pretty challenging rival. I'll find his treasure, don't you worry about that. It's just gonna take some extra deviousness, heh heh..."

Hakuryuu

"I like sleep. He likes sleep. He seems to not mind me hanging around, but since he's a water dragon my fur goes on end... Bleh. I don't like being soggy."
