Name: Naoya Mikazuki
Naoya is very small and thin for his age, almost starved looking. He is also very pale and tired looking most of the time. Under his clothing, he is heavily scarred, due to years of abuse, which is also the reason for his size. His face is dominated by a pair of large dark violet eyes (the pupils of which go into slits when angry or scared, but look more 'human' any other time.), contrasting sharply with his black hair, which is quite long, giving him an almost feral appearance. Yet despite this, he also has a kind of lost and scared look about him as well. He doesn't pay much attention to his clothing, only concerned about whether it covers the scars and bruises, but most of what he wears is far too big for him, due to his small size.
Like Sora (and most hybrids), he tends to move on the balls of his feet (even when wearing normal shoes), although he favours walking upright, rather than on all fours, though he can do that if neccessary. His movements are very fluid and have an odd sort of grace to them, due to his feline characteristics. His hands are slim, with long fingers, but his nails are also very long and sharp, and extend into claws when he feels threatened.
Student?: Yes, but his attendance isn't that great, and he has a lot of trouble with school (reading, writing, etc) because of this.
- music (though he doesn't actually know how to play it, he respects those who do)
- being on his own and out of everyone's way.
- Anything to do with ribbons or ribbon-like objects, such as bits of string, etc (they amuse him. Very cute to watch).
- loud/high pitched noises
- Physical contact of any kind, whether he gives permission or not (not that he would
give it, but anyway...)
- Small, enclosed spaces.
- Rain/deep water (as he can't swim)
Personality: very quiet, tends to shy away from social situations. Does not trust people easily, and even when he does, tends not to say much. Is scared of physical contact, due to the abuse he has suffered, and tends to cringe away when anyone comes near him. Any sudden contact triggers a fight reaction, and he would normally lash out at the person.
He also suffers from horrific nightmares/ hallucinations/ flashbacks/ whatever else you want to call it, which are difficult for him to wake up from. The main triggers for these nightmares, which can strike at any time after the trigger, are: blood (sight or smell), loud noises, physical contact (or even the threat of contact, such as someone coming too close to him.) The physical contact thing is his main trigger though. After he has eventually 'woke up' from the nightmare/flashback, he doesn't remember anything that happened during it, and will not be aware if he had hurt someone while in that state.
He hates this part of him, but also is scared of it, since he can't control when or why it happens.
When not in this state however, he is a very kind and sweet individual, and deeply cares about the few people that he can learn to trust. It might take a while, but once you have gained his trust, he is very protective and would never let anything happen to you, even if he doesn't trust himself to be around you and feels that he can only protect you from a safe distance.
Background: Naoya was born to quite a poor family, his father a human and his mother a Neko. On the night of his fourth birthday, he and his parents had been out to eat, and on their way home they were attacked by a group of humans. His father yelled for them to run, but Naoya and his mother didn't get the chance before his father was shot in the head. The humans then turned on Naoya and his mother, killing the woman and injuring Naoya in the process. They were about to finish the job, when Naoya looked up from his mother's body, and something about the way he looked at them made them stop. That and the fact that they didn't expect that a child that young could survive on the streets anyway, especially when injured.
He lived on the streets for a few years, until he was ten years old. Then came the worst part of his life.
He was taken from the streets by an older man, who claimed he would look after Naoya, but instead spent the next seven years brutally abusing the young Neko, forcing him to live in fear for his life. Sometimes the man invited friends over, and those were the days Naoya dreaded more than anything, since that usually meant that it wasn't just physical abuse that would be involved. His 'life' continued like that until very recently, when the man suffered a massive heart attack. Naoya was badly injured at the time, and so was too weak to go get help, leaving him in the house with the body for the next few days, until people got worried and came over to check. They found Naoya with the body, and cleared out the house the next day. They cleared Naoya out along with the house, not caring that he would have no place to go now.
Guardian: None, since his abuser took him in unnofficially, and Naoya was never registered under the Guardianship programme.
