“You deserve the fate of those you hurt.”

• Age: 15

• Grade: Freshman

• Gender: Male

• Appearance:
Kibo inherited all of his mother’s looks, only keeping his father’s gender. He has Kassia’s flawless, porcelain skin, accompanied by pure white hair and bright green eyes. Kibo stands at 5’4”, not tall for his age and has a rather slim build. One could say that he looks too beautiful to be a guy and it’s not far off. Kibo looks akin to a younger Kassia, except with broader shoulders and lesser curves. Kibo has a penchant of wearing a scarf around his neck, which was his mother's. Kibo generally dresses in warm clothing, as he has a mild dislike for the cold. It isn’t surprising to find him in a hoodie while inside his room with the AC turned all the way to max. Kibo often has a cool, passive face plastered upon his face and carries himself with confidence when he walks. Despite this appearance, Kibo's eyes twinkle with hidden friendliness.

• A complete rundown of Personality:
First glance of his outer self to newcomers; Kibo comes off as an antisocial, withdrawn young teen, who doesn’t seem to speak much. He answers his peers with single worded answers as if to show that he has no interest in speaking to them, or that he finds them uninteresting. Yet, he shows a warmer side to him, willing to point out flaws and fix them - perhaps a wrongly spelled word in English, or even a wrong formula used for calculation – it seems that Kibo truly has an interest to help people. However, when approached by people, he may shy away and make excuses to make himself unavailable to talk to. This antisocial behaviour can be frowned upon, or even add to the white haired youth’s air of mystery, as Kibo rarely speaks about himself and seems to bury himself in his education, sometimes his small self-made constructs. Kibo also is quick to display dislike towards people who have wronged him and can become very competitive towards people whose academic excellent exceed his. To many, Kibo is the White-Hearted Freshman, for his pure intentions and transparent ‘No Nonsense’ attitude.
Deep down however, Kibo has a child’s heart. He grew up a little too fast, the single-parent factor spurring his mentality as well as affecting his childhood. He has a great grasp on responsibility and has an immense dislike for irresponsibility, surprising for his age. Kibo, when stripped of his facade, is a shy, frightened kid who feels like he has no place in this world. Kibo quickly alternates between being hyperactive and happy, to sullen and quiet, sometimes even to angry and explosive, something he has no control over. Kibo also tends to bottle up his feelings, and cries a lot in secret. The white haired teen usually tries to see the good in everyone, however, if you wrong him once, you are forever blacklisted in his life. Kibo never laments his fatherless childhood, so where does his hate for Ryosuke stem from? Kibo loves his mother and thus, Ryosuke abandoning her is something he can never forgive. Straight to the point, deep down Kibo is a warm, quiet, shy little child who wishes to have friends of his own.

-Natural Tinkerer – Kibo can build small toys from spare parts of anything he can take apart. With some batteries, he can even turn these masterpieces into machines.

•Personal History:
We start from the beginning, before Kibo was even born.
Ryosuke Kuromori, the CEO and founder of the Blackforest Automobile Industry, went to many countries for many meetings and business trips. While he already has a family, Ryosuke always seemed to have a female companion with him to spend the nights with. When Ryosuke was in Poland, he chanced upon an angelic beauty during his trip. Meeting in the most unlikely of places, Ryosuke was in a car when he saw Kassia Jagoda on a bicycle, her basket filled with various berry produce that she had harvested from her family’s farm. Ryosuke insisted the driver to give Kassia a lift and the two got to know each other. Within a few days, Ryosuke’s charm, good looks and dangerously sweet personality had smitten Kassia. They had a passionate night the day before Ryosuke left. Several months later, as fate may have it, Ryosuke returned to Poland with the intent of meeting Kassia again, would find that she was pregnant with his child. The coward gifted Kassia with promises of money, who declined them, asking only to “Take care of Kibo, when the time comes”. Kassia was able to forgive Ryosuke for being a married man, yet bedding her. The strong woman was able to shoulder her burden and raise her son alone.
And so we come to Kibo’s story.
Kibo was born, a beautiful child, named after the Japanese word for ‘Hope’, as Kassia believe he would be the symbol of ‘Hope’ to many. Indeed, he was. Kibo grew up to be just as beautiful as his mother, even at a young age. His kind behaviour and pure love for his only parent was envied by many and he was truly called a gifted child. However, at school, Kibo would always wonder to himself why other children seemed to have both male and female parents, but he never questioned his mother and was content enough with just one. While Kassia never spoiled him, she did gift him with all of her love, attention and care. It wasn’t until his 11th birthday when Ryosuke came to meet with Kassia again and was finally introduced to Kibo. Instantly, there was friction. Kibo would later know that Ryosuke was his father and that his mother was actually his mistress. Defiant, Kibo denounced Ryosuke Kuromori as his father and was only able to forgive his mother for keeping this terrible secret during her death bed as an unknown brain illness claimed her during his 13th birthday.
Kibo became withdrawn after that and the talented child who scored straight As would soon discontinue his education to tend to his berry fields. Many tried to console him, but Kibo would push them all away. He stayed alone, ate alone, worked alone, no longer with the company of the angel who took care of him. Despite his hiatus from school, Kibo’s mind remained ever vigilant and sharp, absorbing information like a sponge. When he wasn’t working in the fields, he would be reading the small stack of educational books that he would buy with the money he earned from selling berries, in hopes of one day returning to school and beginning his education again.
One day, he received a letter stating that he was accepted to Azuline Academy, a rather prestigious school located in Japan, the country of his father. Urged by his grandparents, as well as the customers who had taken a liking to the white haired teen, Kibo finally relinquished his work in the fields and packed up what little he had, leaving the fields to be attended by his grandparents. He headed for Azuline Academy, determined to pursue his educational dream and make amends with the spirit of his mother by being the ‘hope’ he was always meant to be.


• Secrets:
-Favourite colour, bright cyan.
-The bastard son of Ryosuke Kuromori, the CEO of the rising automobile industry.
-Has arachnophobia and apiphobia
-Isn’t good with cold, can easily get cold during winter. However, Kibo loves to wear warm clothing and stay in cold environments. To Kibo, it gives him a sense of closure in doing so. The true reason behind this is the fact that when Kibo was younger, he ended up getting sick in the winter season and Kassia took care of him, hugging him to sleep. So whenever it’s cold, Kibo warms himself up to feel comforted.
-He has severe bipolar disorder and can quickly go from cheerful to moody in a split second. For this very reason, he interacts very little with others.
-He really wants friends... but he has become so efficient at pushing people away that he does it without thinking. He’s really a lonely child at heart.
-Kibo’s motivation for his academic pursuit is to be a medical researcher and scholar.
