Robin is reasonable and kind, yet overly sensitive and easily flustered. Usually he wants to find the most logical solution to the problems, even if that hurts him. He's a perfectionist in a way that irritated some people around him, as he can be unintentionally rude to other's achievements. He can be harsh on his own achievements as well. Robin shows great passion in everything he does, most notably art. If he notices a mistake, he can get very angry at himself, destroy his work and start all over.
Despite doing his best to voice his opinion, Robin is on the submissive side. He's not a spineless doormat per se, but even after he insists his disagreement, he would still end up doing what the other party says.
Robin is a bit judgemental, yet nice and caring. With hard work he's ready to go trough his own insecurities and fears just so he can help a friend.




History:

Robin got along with his family, or at least what remained from it. His aunt wasn't much older than him, but she had to take care of him and his sickly younger brother. His aunt struggled to take care of both of them after the death of the parents. Robin worried a lot about his aunt and his brother, but couldn't give any major help to them. He had trouble sleeping at night, angry at himself for not being useful enough. He would go out, seeking for inspiration for his paintings - at least that was something he was good at and was enjoyed by his family. He gained appreciation for the calming beauty the nature had. He also met a girl, who quickly became his friend. They talked to each other every night. Abigail - that was her name. Robin didn't want to bother her with his deepest problems. He didn't even want to think about them while he was outside with her. They just managed to form a strong bond.

When Robin was around eleven years old, his younger brother's condition went worse. Soon Robin and his aunt were the only members of the family household. Sinse then he got more vulnerable to bad things that happen to him. He got worse at hiding his sadness. His aunt went more silent and lifeless, yet overprotective to her living nephew. This didn't go on forever, as one night she was suddenly full of energy, constantly saying she had to get used to living in the night. That was the night she was getting dangerously closer to 14-year-old Robin. He didn't know what to think at that moment. Nothing was crystal clear for him when she bit him either. However, he figured it out soon after. That was the night that started their life as vampires.

One day his friend Abigail was rushed to the hospital. She was very close to her demise, and Robin got a painful deja vu. However, this time he knew a way to prevent that, so he told her about his vampiric experience. He offered her to continue her life as a vampire and live at the Academy. She accepted.

So begins...

Beep beep beep Yuki's alarm clock wailed. Letting out a sigh, she rolled over and turned off the alarm. It was already 7:30, which wasn't surprising considering how many times she had hit snooze.

After tossing her blankets onto the foot of the bed, she pulled herself onto her feet, and threw on her uniform. She really didn't want to be late, especially on the first day of the new school year. Yuki grabbed her binder off of the small desk that sat in the corner of her room, and tossed it in her bag, along with several pencils, pens, and a yellow notebook given to her by her parents before she left.

Yuki quietly slipped out of her room and down to the kitchen, trying her best not to wake anyone else up. She grabbed her water bottle, and filled it up, before throwing in her bag.
Reaching into the bowl of fruit sitting on the counter, she grabbed an apple and wiped it off on her shirt.

Picking up her bag and throwing it over her shoulder, Yuki left the building, and started the short walk to school, munching on her apple as she walked. By the time she got to school, the apple had been chewed down to it's core, so she tossed in the nearest trash can, before heading to check the board with the class lists on it. After finding her class, and looking through the rest of the names, she was really disappointed. Nobody she knew was in her class this year, at least that she knew well. There was a girl who was in her class last year, but they never really talked to each other, so it didn't make much of a difference. Yuki sighed and started to walk to her class, not really paying attention to where she was going. Suddenly she bumped into a person.

Mai's cell phone alarm disrupted her sleep. Her feet were where her head should have been. She covered her head with a pillow and groaned. She planned to place the phone on the other side of the room, so she could get up in order to turn it off. Now she can't move a muscle and the sound was still penetrating her ears.

"Mai!" a female voice from another room shrieked. "Turn that thing off and get your rear up this instant! This is the third time I've heard it this morning!"
"In a minute, mooom!" Mai moaned in response.

Sinse Mai got up a bit late and Zack considered meeting some teachers, she figured that he and Finn would be already on their way. She simply took her backpack and baseball equipment and went off, especially when her mother was pushing her to 'hurry the hell up'.

"I'm not even that late." the girl thought. "If I keep up with this speed, I'll probably be there before the teacher."


"Abby must be at the roof again." Robin thought soon after. "I'll just go up and bring her to class, in case she hadn't woken up yet."
"Heeyyy, Robin!" a voice called. Robin turned back.
"Oh. Good morning, Mai." he replied.
"Did you see our game last week? We smashed them with one point!" she smiled.
"Well, a victory by one point isn't really 'smashing', and you could have beaten them up with more."
"Well... Yeah. Eh, still victory. Okay, Robin. I'll be going to class now. Greet Zach for me!"
"Okay, I will."

Soon Robin reached the roof.
"Huh?" he raised his brow. "She's already up. Well, good for her. I hope she gets rid of her roof slumber habit soon. Probably she's in the..."

Soon Robin reached the sports hall and opened the door.
"There you are! Did you sleep on the roof again? Soon you'll have to find another place."

(Realized that Robin might be a second year too, so here's my attempt at including him. And also to talk to the other characters, haha. Sorry for all the editing.)

Zach briskly walked down the hall with his hands in his pockets, a small smile on his face. He made no effort to increase his speed; he'd already gotten a teacher's pass and there really wasn't any reason to show up red in the face from running. Zach could feel his smile grow a little bigger as he remembered - he'd helped someone, he'd been good, and yup, no need to run like the wind now that he didn't need to worry about being late.

Life is awesome.

Spying a familiar looking back up ahead, Zach waved and walked faster. "Yo, Robin!" He called out, a pleasant grin on his face. "What's up?"

"There you are! Did you sleep on the roof again? Soon you'll have to find another place.", Abby spun around to find robin at the door leading into the sports hall.

Offering him a sheepish grin, she pulled the ponytail to let her hair down as she began to make her way to the changing room, "Sorry Robin, I didn't realise you were looking for me. Give me a second, I just need to change back into my normal cloths.", she finished off before disappearing and swiftly changing out of her white kit.

Re-entering the room, she offered Robin a smile as she came to stand next to him, turning her body to lean against the door while she looked the boy up and down, ready for another day of school, compared to her rumpled cloths and ruffled hair. "Anyway, to answer your question, You know how much I love that roof, I don't think I will ever stop sleeping up there... or at least not till I have left this school.", she stuck her tongue out teasingly before turning her attention to the quickly fulling school.

"I hope you know what class we are in, or else I am going to be so lost.", she grumbled out, making her way back to the main building, "This is why I hate the first day of school."

Robin yawned and rubbed his eye.
"Let's hope you'll resist the sun trough your whole transformation." he said after she came back.
"I hope you know what class we are in, or else I am going to be so lost. This is why I hate the first day of school." Abby said.
"Abby, you should take the responsibility to be more organized and know where you'll study. Even if it's the first day of school. What if I was caught by a hunter?" Robin then went silent for a moment, realizing he should change the subject.
"I'll lead you. Better hurry before we get too late."

Once again Robin went silent. He wanted to think of a topic that wasn't connected with school.
"Do you feel any drastic changes?" he asked. "Blood lust? Mild light irritation from time to time? My aunt stopped cooking anything with garlic."


(Sorry, next time I'll go for 300 words.)

Abby had to suppress a slight sigh as the lecture Robin gave her. It was the same each year when it came to academics, she never took enough responsibility and that is would only be trouble if she continued on the way she was. Though as much as she disliked it, she couldn't help the soft smile that appeared on her face.
She has known Robin for so many years, and had long ago realised his lectures were simply because he was worried about her, especially after what had happened...

She smiled as he changed the topic and swung an arm around the boy in an attempt to show she was totally cool with the fact that her 2 year of changing had just gone by and she would soon be a full vampire, even if sometimes that couldn't be farther from the truth.

"Ya, some what. I kinda feel like a ginger when I spend to much time in sunlight and garlic kinda makes me wanna be sick but other then that I am pretty good...", she trailed off before shaking her head and forcing a smile back onto her face, "Thanks for worrying about me Robin but I'll be fine, I mean, I have you right.", she joked before coming to the board which showed their classes.

"Seems like we are in the same class yet again this year! I'm so glad, or else I would have no one to cheat off of.", she laughed before glancing around the abandoned courtyard. "It would appear, my lovely Robin, that we are late. On the first day of school. Again.", she couldn't help but grin, grabbing his arm and dragging him down the halls towards their classroom.

Robin couldn't help but smile a bit when Abigail said she was glad they were once again classmates. That was one of those moments where the two of them agrreed. Soon after he let out a quick, quiet and snarky laugh at the cheating joke. At first he would usually sigh when he had to help Abby in some way. He still did, but not as often as before.

"Yep, we keep a tradition." The boy replied to the remark about how they were always late on the first day of school. "Let's break it next year, shall we?" He said. He yawned while his friend was dragging him towards the cvlassroom, but quickly pulled himself together. Once they reached the door, Robin opened it.

"Sorry for being late, teacher." He spoke quietly. "May we stay for the class?"

His eyes quckly landed on Zach. He remembered to give the greetings from...

"Miss Kanegata!"
Another teacher in one of the senior classrooms approached Mai.
"Pay attention in class! But in order for you to do that... you have to wake up, right?" he poked her head.
Mai groaned, got her head up and rubbed her eyes.
"Sorry, teacher. It will never happen again." she mumbled.
"If it doesn't happen till the end of the day, I'll give you a handshake!" the teacher replied. "Sinse it's the first day of school, I won't be very hard on you. However, you must stop, or you'll fall asleep on the exams! Not that you'll do much better awake. Unless you do this incredibly hard thing called studying. You'll have extra homework. You'll do an essay about the history of vampire mythology! Write that down! If you don't do it, I'll give you a red mark! I'm sorry, Miss Kanegata, but I think this is the only way I can get you interested in reading!"
"Excuse me, teacher!" a classmate called. "Can we start the lesson? We can't spend the whole class concentrating on Kanegata's studies!"
Mai calmly wrote down her assigment and opened her textbook like nothing happened.
"Fine. You're right. But you get extra homework too for involving yourself in teacher's job!"

Zach placed a hand over his heart like he was about to swoon. "I'm touched," he said mockingly, but the smile in his eyes and face were sincere as he dropped his hands to the side. "Who knows, she might always turn out to be a geek. But you'll always be the number one geek in my books too, so no worries." you're my best friend too, after all.

Turning around before the teacher noticed that they were talking and have another angry tantrum, Zach gave Robin (the real Robin this time, green eyes and all) a wave before pulling out his books. He intended to keep his promise to Finn.

The lesson was mostly dry, and Zach payed only minimal attention to the lesson. I don't think Cassandra counts as a nerd, he thought, copying the formulas the teacher was writing on the whiteboard in small, neat letters. She doesn't look like one, and she's not a geek either, so... His pen paused for a moment. Maybe a Jock? The nerd, the geek and the jock... Sounds good.

When class was over, Zach quickly packed his belongings. There wasn't much other than the practical black notebook he had used to take notes with and his pencil case, so in almost no time at all he was ready to leave. Slinging his bag over his shoulder, Zach joined Ryner at the front of the classroom to wait for Cassandra. "I think she's a jock," Zach told Ryner, adjusting his bag. "Cause she prefers physical activity and stuff." Frowning at his timetable, he added, "next period is science, I think we're in the same class for that too, although I'm not sure about Cassandra.

Or Robin, either. I should probably check on him later.

Turning towards Cassandra's direction, Zach place a hand in his pocket and grinned. "Hey, Cassandra!" He called cheerily. "What's your next class?"

Zach looked over Ryner's shoulder at the schedule. "You're stuck with us, huh?" He gave her a grin. "Cool! We can lead you to classes, so there's no need to worry about being lost so long as your with us."

He made to follow them out of the classroom, then he remembered. Oh yeah! Almost forgot. Turning around just outside the classroom, he gave Robin a wave. "Robin!" He called out, waving to get the boy's attention. He heard a bump behind him, but ignored it to shout "We're going to science! Are you in the same class? If so, want to walk with us?"

Alex? What are you doing here?




'Stuck in another class with you losers? God help me.' A very sarcastic groan was heard but Cass still had a smile on her face. She was actually quite relieved she had someone to hang out with. Two someone's for that matter. A whole new world to the hunter really, but one she could totally get used to.

Bag clutched tight Cass was next after Ryner to leave the class so she got a good view of him falling on his ass. Did Cass see the girl there? Yes. Could she of warned him? Totally. Would it of been as funny though? No way.

Cass chuckled under her breath. What a Romeo he turned out to be. It was a good thing Cass was so acustom to her brothers endless flirting with any girl he saw or she'd quickly grow tired of Ryner's failing attempts.

'You're a regular Casanova aren't you Ry-' Her words trailed off as her eyes took in the scene fully. The group of girls were still laughing. At first Cass though it was because of Ryner's stupidity but they had been laughing before that. There was a face she knew way too well in that crowd, and he wasn't laughing.

Cass took a step forward and at first it looked like she was going to haul up the girl on the ground. Instead she stepped clear over her, stalking towards her brother. She grabbed him by the shoulders, inspecting him. While small there was a redness in the middle of his face. Being a hunter Cassandra knew what that meant all too well.

Someone had hit her baby brother.

There would be hell to pay.

One hand stayed firmly on a shoulder while the other grabbed his chin. Much more gently this time she tilted his head to the side. 'Who did this?' Looking at Alex her face was shielded from everyone else but her icy tone could be heard by all.

'Who hit you? Alexander tell me.' She demand. It was clear Cass was serious now. She would never refer to her sibling by his full name unless he was in deep trouble. And even then she still used the nicename Alex. When she used his full name everyone in the Penn family knew Cassandra was out for blood

And she despised blood.

As Yuki was busy laughing at Alex's failure, it was pretty funny seeing him be rejected like that, she didn't notice the boy approaching her from behind, and he must have not noticed her as well, because a few seconds later they were both on the ground. Looking up she realized it was the same boy from this morning, though this time he wasn't alone. He was accompanied by two other boys, and a girl who looked really similar to Alex, so she assumed she must be the sister he had mentioned earlier.

Taking the boys hand, Yuki stood up. Maybe he wasn't trying to make fun of her earlier after all. She tried to remember his name for a minute, before realizing she hadn't waited to hear it."Oh, I didn't catch your name earlier."The girl started to say something, but cut herself off and marched over to Alex, confirming Yuki's suspicions that they were siblings. Alex looked petrified as she marched up to him. She appeared to be inspecting him, before asking him who hit him. The girl who had shrunk back a bit, trying to dis appear into the crowd.

"Should we do something? She looks really mad. Alex hadn't been hit very hard, but it had left a mark, and she obviously wasn't happy about it. She seemed like a completely different person than she was a few moments ago.

Alex stopped laughing as soon as he saw his sister, knowing that if she noticed he had been hurt she would be pissed. While she was distracted by her friend bumping into Yuki, he attempted to rub away the redness, though it only made it worse. As soon as she saw him she stalked towards him, and grabbed him by the shoulders, starting to inspect him. H-hey Cass, I see you made some friends, are you going to introduce me? Don't worry I won't tell that many embarrassing stories. He tried to change the topic, already knowing where this was headed. Though Cass obviously wasn't going to budge.

When she asked him who hit him her voice was icy, the only other times he had seen her act like this was when he got hurt hunting, and the aftermath was not pretty. He definitely did not want to see what she would do if she found out who hit him. "It's nothing Cass, plus you've got three guys over there waiting for you, or are you just buying time because your embarrassed of your little brother."

"Who hit you? Alexander tell me." Alex froze at her words, he couldn't remember the last time she had called him by his full name. She always called him Alex, even that time he accidentally stabbed her in the leg while training, and her saying it now means she was serious about this. All he could do now was buy time, and hope she forgets about it eventually.

M me to your friends, I'll just introduce myself."[/color] Alex walked over to the group of people watching the scene. "Hello." He gave a dramatic bow before continuing. "I'm Alex, Cass's little brother, I'm sure you've heard all about me, and I'll be your go to source for embarrassing stories about her."

As the class ended, Robin stood up. He was glad the teacher didn't make a big deal out of getting late.
"Science is the next class." He murmured to himslef. Then Robin heard a familliar vouice calling for him. It was Zach. Robin had a fairly positive opinion for this guy. He wasn't slacking off with his studies and he was friendly.

"Yes!" Robin replied. "I have science too! I'll come with you!" he then quickly turned to Abby.
"If you have science too, come with us," he spoke to her. Then he reached Zach.
"Greetings from Kanegata-sempai. " he said before witnessing a scene with a boy from year one. Apparently a girl have punched him in the face. Her friends were haveng a good laugh from this. Robin frawned at this. Perhaps the boy had done something to deserve such a horrible act of violence in the hallways, but it was still too much. If they were gender reversed, crouds would run after the one who gave the punch. But if a girl hits a boy, it's comedy gold and celebrated. This double standard has always been loather by Robin.

However, Cassandra, the new classmate was even more furious. Robin was silent the whole time, but he smiled from the inside. It was good to see someone caring for a family member, especially siblings.

The boy however seemed unfazed by everything. He just bowed and introduced himself.
"The guy sure has guts." Robin thought.

"Hey, people!" Mai reached the group, as she was too late for the scene.
"Hello, Kanega..." Robin started, but Mai's half-smirk and raised brow stopped him, before he sighed and continued "Mai."
"Let's all meet at the roof, shall we?"

"Kanega - oh, Mai," Zach said, understanding dawning over his face. "Man, it's been a long time since I heard her get referred to by her last name - huh?"

Seeing Robin frown, Zach turned around just in time to see a familiar looking boy fall to the ground. Considering how the girl was holding her hand and how her friends were giggling, it was obvious what had happened.

Zach frowned. "that's not really fair." he muttered to himself. He took a step forward, aiming to help the kid up, but before he got there Cassandra was on the job.

Zach whistled. Remind me not to get on her bad side.

When the boy - Alex - introduced himself, Zach gave him a wave. "Yo!" he began cheerily, "I'm Za-"

"Hey, people!"

"Whoa!" Zach leapt backwards in surprise the same time Ryner shouted, his hands reaching upwards as though to block an assualt. "Oh, it's just you, Mai," he said, relieved. He brought his hands down. "Don't scare me like that! You nearly gave me a heart attack!"

When Mai asked her question, Zach answered with an awkward smile. "I don't think we can meet up at the roof today," he said sheepishly, scratching his head. he glanced behind him as he did so; Ryner seemed to have the situation under control. The best he could do to help was probably by upping the normalcy by having a normal conversation to get rid of the weird feeling in the air.

"We're suppose to show Cassandra - that's the angry girl who was threatening that other girl - around the clubs during lunch break (or after school (and maybe after class too). Maybe her brother too, since he seems to be a freshman." Zach glanced at Cassandra before looking back at Mai. "Sorry. Did Finn fall asleep in class again?" he added anxiously.

Just then, the bell rang. Well, that's that. Meeting them at lunch doesn't sound so bad...

"Sure, see ya!" Zach gave the fleeing duo a wave. "C'mon, we've gotta go before we're late ourselves," he said to the others, shifting his backpack for it to rest more securely on his back. Hope this helps, Ryner. "I heard that we might be having Mr Ludwig as our teacher this year; he's good but he really doesn't like people being late. C'mon, hurry!"

Zach was already ready to run down the hall with the others, keeping pace with them. "Mai," he called over his shoulder. "Want to join us during lunch later to show them around?"

Zach snickered as Ryner and Cassandra bantered with each other, walking along beside them with his hands in his pockets. He was kind of glad that Ryner was getting along with other people, he seemed happier. Frog legs, huh? Zach had never eaten them before, he wondered what they tasted like.

When Cassandra arched her back, Zach raised his hands and changed his stance, acting as though he had a sword in his hands. Grinning, he moved forward as Cassandra let the imaginary arrow fly, making a swishing noise as he sliced downwards with his own imaginary sword to slice the incoming arrow into half.

"Shiing!" He grinned teasingly at her, holding his imaginary sword to the ready. "The knight intercepts the headshot, saving the prince from disaster! What is the witch's next move? Will she continue to focus on the prince, or will she - oh lord I can't keep this up." Zach cracked, laughing. He turned to Robin beseechingly. "Robin, help me out here."

He recollected himself just in time to hear the exchange between Ryner and Cassandra. "Then what about me?" Zach asked eagerly, slinging an arm around Ryner's shoulders. He smiled at her, trying his best to look winsome. "Would I turn into a frog if you kissed me?" An idea struck him, and Zach bit his lip to keep from laughing. Girls, eat your heart out. "or..."

Zach's eyelids slip half-shut, bringing his head closer to Ryner in what he hoped was a romantic pose and trying not to feel like he was too close for comfort. His voice went half an octave lower in an effort to sound seductive, and it was only through a Herculean effort that Zach managed to keep the little tell-tale waver that meant he was rolling with laughter inside out of his voice. "Do I look delicious?"

Zach wasn't sure what he looked like, hanging on Ryner's shoulder like this, but he could see the group of girls staring and giggling at them out of the corner of his eye. That meant that he wasn't doing that bad a job, right? Hopefully. He curled his mouth into a faint grin and tilted his head to both look at Cassandra and remain looking like they'd come from the cover of a yaoi manga. "Well?" Zach asked, and even though his eyes were still half shut it was easy to see them sparkling with mirth. "What do you think?"
