Description



Image
"Do you stop believing in the sun when the moon comes out? Do you fear the everlasting night in the absence of day? You don't, and that's faith. I am the light at the end of the tunnel. I am the one people can turn to and have reason to believe there is still good in this life. Do not lose your faith, as I will always rise by morning."

FULL NAME
      Haruki Wakahisa
      (ha • roo • key ~radiance, sunshine)
      (wah • ka • hee • suh ~longevity, ancient)

NICKNAME(S)
      Haru is the most commonly used one. He doesn't mind who uses it. However, when discussing more official business (excluding when in the presence of other celestials), he prefers to be referred to by the full title.

PLANET/STAR
      ☼ The Sun | The center of our solar system, the brightest object in our sky. It is the hottest object in our universe, standing as the star in which the planets orbit.

GENDER
      As a star, Haruki is naturally genderless. However, he has come to refer to himself as male over time. Despite this, he doesn't mind they/them pronouns and only usually he/him because others seem to find it easier.

AGE
      Unknown | Many may consider the Sun to be ageless, existing far longer than human life, as it will continue to do once humans burn out entirely. Time is beneath him. He is 19 in appearance.

SEXUALITY
      Pansexual

HEIGHT
      5'9"

WEIGHT
      135lbs

HAIR COLOR
      His hair is a radiant blond with no other shades, each lock as pure as the last.

EYE COLOR
      In his current form, they are only a light amber with a splash of reddish-auburn towards the iris. When in his celestial form, his eyes are a luminescent gold, as bright as the rays that paint the sky.

SKIN TONE
      While on Earth, he appears to be only lightly tanned to blend with those around him. However, as a celestial, his skin is brown, a fantastic contrast of his lighter features.

GENERAL APPEARANCE
      Haruki's appearance exudes warmth, even in such a simple form as a young human's. He could easily pass as a prince, always carrying an air of low-key regality and a humble sense of confidence. His back is always straight, his shoulders square, his chin held high and his posture upright. In either of his forms, he's easily considered handsome. While he appears young in his physical, Earthly form, even those who are "older" than him get the sense of maturity. A deep-rooted sense of being has been carved in his bones, forever expressing all the ancient wonders of his existence and longevity. Even when he's playing an immature role, his looks still remain subtly otherwise.

      His eyes, wide with age and intelligence, can be versatile between soft and warm, as well as strong and bold. His build is fit, with the body of an average runner. While he's not as tall as one might think, he can easily make himself appear tall and looming over those who misjudge him. Surprising to most, Haruki doesn't care too much about the clothes he wears. He would be just as fine wearing an oversized Hawaiin shirts with trip pants just as he would be wearing a high-class thousand dollar pressed suit. Usually, he just opts for whatever he finds most comfortable, wearing a loose-fitting sweater vest over a button-down collared shirt, khakis, and, if he's feeling particularly important, a tie.

ImagePERSONALITY
      ☀ Theatrical ☼ Persistent ☀ Quarrelsome ☼ Leader ☀

      The Sun has many sides.

      At face value, Haru is just as warm as the star in the sky. The kind of kindness he radiates is so genuine that even strangers have come to trust his words. The air that surrounds him is a constant, unwavering strength in being, a sense that being alive in the only way he should be. This exuding confidence tends to spread and inspire those around him, and if his mere presence doesn't do it, one of his pep-talks probably will. He seems to know just the right things to say and just the right way to say it. If he had the right mind to, he could probably get whatever he wanted from anyone he wanted it from, but he isn't exactly the manipulative type and just enjoys the satisfaction of brightening the days of others. Seeing a smile on the faces of those around him warms his heart, puts a skip in his step.

      However, his kindness should never be taken for granted. He may forgive, but he may never forget a wrong done towards him. Haru knows when to put personal feelings aside in order to clearly sort out a situation. His lawful nature values justice above all else. In his mind, a criminal has just as much value as a prince, and, as such, they should both be treated fairly time and time again. There is no right or wrong side, only, purely, a right and a wrong, and the one who did the wrong should be the one to suffer the punishment of their crime, whatever it may be, and whoever they may be. With an insatiable desire for organization, he has the ability to step back from the situation at hand and acknowledge things from both sides of the issue. From there, he can figure out which decision would be for the best.

      There's a time for work and a time for play, and while he can usually determine the difference and maintain a professional appearance when need be, Haru can actually be quite the opposite most other times. To those who don't know him or who haven't been around him long enough, he may seem to be this great, confidence figure, ripe with determination and modesty. However, to those who actually know how he is over a length of time, they know that he can be as dramatic as a toddler after watching their favorite show. He often spends hours watching plays or reading books, and then has a time after this period where he'll re-enact these events throughout his daily life, dragging others into his little acts with or without their permission. He has a speech prepared for everything, always putting his all into every situation or conflict, no matter how big or small, and will often throw in plenty of quotes from popular poets.

      Just the same, to most he may seem like nothing can rain on his parade, but he's also been known to have some pretty nasty temper tantrums, especially when things aren't going his way. Haru can go from a safety blanket of warmth and kindness, to a blazing inferno of spite and bitterness, leaving all those involved, innocent or not, with third-degree burns. The best way to deal with these times is to just plug your ears and ignore him, as he'll eventually burn himself out and go take a nap. However, he'll probably still continue to shoot some pretty biting passive aggressiveness in the way of those who dare come near him. When carrying one of his childish vendetta's, he can stubborn enough to keep it up for days on it. The quickest way to start one of these fires is by ruining any semblance of his ideal "organization," starting an argument, or calling him out on being wrong. Despite his usual rational nature, arguments with him and his hard-headed self can escalate into something painful and not at all worthwhile. Both sides will probably lose in the end (with him as the self-proclaimed winner).

LIKES
      ☀Warmth - Obvious enough. As the Sun, he prefers warmth over cold. It takes a lot of heat to make him uncomfortable. He's even been known to wear layers in summer, as well as take steamy showers.

      ☼Rainbows - He finds them a fascinating phenomenon of nature, one he claims to take part in helping create. Whenever he sees one, he feels the need to stop and point it out to anyone around, and then continue to stay in place watching it until he's stirred to move again. He may even stop mid-sentence.

      ☀Poetry - Not much of a critic, Haru enjoys most types of poetry from all sorts of people. It can be from Shakespeare or just some guy off the streets. He'll love anything anyone puts effort in to create.

      ☼Plays - While not an avid fan of television or movies, he could sit in on plays for hours. In fact, he tends to mimic a few he's seen, using theatrics in his own day-to-day life, from the way he'll give speeches to the way he'll move as he talks.

      ☀Novels - His preference is nonfiction over fiction, although he'll read anything that piques an interest to him. Once he starts reading something, he'll carry it with him everywhere until he's found the time to finish it. His favorite times to read are just before sleeping.

      ☼Cat Naps - Nothing beats taking a quick nap in the heat of the afternoon Sun. It's one of his favorite activities, especially if he's feeling stressed.

      ☀Birds - They are the animals closest to the sky. Before coming to Earth, he used to amuse himself by watching them from above whenever he could. He still likes to imagine what it might be like to fly.

      ☼Organization - There's a place for everything and everything should be in its place. However, Haru's ideal organization methods are a bit...unorthodox. In other words, it's a mess. To anyone else in the world, his idea of keeping organized is just making an outright mess. He claims it's all set up in a way that he knows where everything is, and states that when it's all clean and put away properly, he never knows where anything is. This way of doing things can be quite agitating, but it's even worse when anyone tries to clean up his mess. He's extremely anal about it, quick to snap at anyone who dares mess with his methods of "organization."

      ☀Art - As mentioned, he loves anything that someone made an effort to make. He has a deep admiration for all art, from Picasso to crayon scribbles drawn by toddlers. He frequently claims that if he had a fridge big enough, he would hang all the artwork of the world up on it.

      ☼Music - He has few preferences when it comes to the music he likes. He favors instrumentals, but enjoys (to most peoples' surprise) loud rock and screeching guitars nearly as much as anything else. When he sees someone making music, he'll stop whatever it is he was doing to give them his full, individed attention.

DISLIKES
      ☀Cold Weather - Another obvious choice, as he much prefers warm weather. Being in the cold makes him bitter and easy to snap with little prompting. He'll complain for hours on end. In general, it's just not a pretty sight to see him in.

      ☼Snow - While aesthetically pleasing, it gives Haru a deep sense of overwhelming boredom. Nothing he does when it snows ever seems worth doing, so he'll usually sleep through snow days. He's easy to blame the snow on his laziness.

      ☀Rainy Days - They have rarely been kind to him, and so he harbors very little pleasant feelings towards rainy days. They make him feel down and dreary, giving him little energy to accomplish any of his tasks. During these days, he would rather shut himself away and avoid contact with others until the Sun comes out again.

      ☼Secrets - A bit hypocritical, as he is not against having many of his own, but would be personally offended to discover if anyone were keeping things from him.

      ☀Sweets - There's no real explanation for it. Nothing's happened to him to make him dislike candy, he's just never developed a taste for sweet things. He much prefers spicy foods. There are very few sweets that he'll actually bother to eat.

      ☼Tension - In the event of tensions between others, he will act as a mediator to quell the situation before it spirals out of control. When it comes to himself and another person, if he finds himself being irrational, he'll try to step away from the situation to breathe before returning to it, settled.

      ☀Competition - Having to compete against another goes against his naturally stubborn nature. While he genuinely feels that he is equal to others, he wouldn't hesitate to admit that he thinks of himself a little highly, taking on an unofficial leaderly role, and does not appreciate having his position challenged. If anyone were to ever try to one-up him, he would get very defensive and may go out of his way to bring them back down a level.

      ☼Backlash - When he makes a statement or produces a speech, those are his true beliefs coming forth, so whenever someone tries to argue against him or shut him down, he'll become very defensive about it. He doesn't like to be told he's wrong, even when he obviously is.

TALENTS
      ☀Determined - When Haru sets his mind to something, nothing can get in his way. He will move buildings and climb mountains to fulfill his aspirations. These feelings are only maximized when he's made a promise to someone. His spirits are not easily swayed or deterred.

      ☼Perceptive - It's hard to slip anything past him. Even if he doesn't say anything about it, or make any true note that he's taken notice to something, doesn't mean he hasn't seen what's been going on. It's nearly impossible to plot things behind his back. He has a sensitivity to being involved with all that is around him; whether or not he chooses to be subtle about it is up to him.

      ☀Interpersonal - A people-person at heart, he has no problem interacting or building relationships with others. People seem to find his naturally given warmth inviting and complete strangers have been known to tell him their whole life story with little prompting. If he wishes to get the attention of someone, he rarely doesn't get what he wants.

      ☼Leader - As a natural born leader, he has plenty of positive traits and qualities that would define him as such. He's strong-willed, courageous, level-headed, and good with others, both individually and with a crowd. He can maintain the order of things and deal with multiple situations at a time, no matter how varied they may be.

FLAWS
      ☀Stubborn - While his determination can be a virtue, it can also be quite the vice. On the negative side of things, he can be quite hard headed, making it hard for others to argue against him when he's decided he's right. Getting into an argument with him is about as worthwhile and enjoyable as wrestling an alligator. At least with the alligator, you may have a chance to win.

      ☼Secretive - This concerns a variety of things. When finding out new information, he would rather keep it a secret until he's absolutely sure he knows all the facts and details before sharing it all with anyone else, even if it's detrimental. When it comes to himself, if he's not feeling right, having internal qualms, he would rather keep these feelings pent-up to deal with on his own. While not a liar at heart, he does tend to keep quiet about the truth, or at least not divulge all of it.

      ☀Biting - Something some people tend to forget is that heat burns. He can be warm and kind any day, but he can just as easily be scathing and sharp. He's well-known for his temper tantrums. Some days it takes the world to move his cheery mood; other days, he can snap at the drop of a pin.

      ☼Lawful - While he would fight to ends of the universe for those close to him, Haru doesn't initially believe in taking sides. When it comes to fights or arguments, he finds the best way to dispute them to be taking his personal feelings for each person out of the equation. He deals with these matters professionally and will give his decision to the situation in a very lawful manner. If he believes his best friend is in the wrong, he wouldn't hesitate to grant them punishment, even if the other was a stranger.

FEARS
      ☀Failure - There's a lot of things that go into this. Being the type of person he is, Haru feels like the weight of the world is on his shoulders. And normally, he believes he has the capability of carrying this weight with his head held high. However, other times, when he thinks about those who must rely on him and all the responsibilities he's given himself, he's terrified straight to his core. In his mind, everything must go right. There is no room for failure. As far as he's concerned, failing would be admitting his inefficiency as a proper leader (whether this title is official or not, it's what he believes).

      ☼Losing Control - Everything in his life is properly organized to his ideal. In his mind, everything is sectioned off and as it should be. He sees things clearly and properly. He has a handle on each and every situation that comes to rise. If something ever comes up that he can't properly control or take care of in a quick and efficient manner, he panics. His clear way of thinking may drain away to irrational actions. His desire for control is a desperate one.

      ☀Complete Darkness - As the Sun, his very center is light. While space is initially void of it, he still manages to maintain his luminous glow, and when he's in space, that's usually enough to keep him going. However, on Earth, it's different. He can tolerate night because there are stars guiding his way, but if they were clouded over, or if he happened to be trapped in a room or a cave or some other area concealed in darkness, he would lose himself. As such, he's taken to keeping a nightlight in the room he sleeps in.

      ☼Loneliness - A fate he knows well. Being the first, Haru was along for a long, long time before he was ever joined by others. In the beginning, he was harsh and heated, but over time, he became kind and warm. He's developed an attachment to having company with him and now that he's had the chance to see what it's like, the idea of returning to a solitary state frightens him.



☼ "In this life, there are a multitude of outcomes. If you tried to reach for them all, you would fall a long way towards death. So sometimes, the best plan of action is to have no plan at all." ☼

POWER
      Space-Time Manipulation
      Time is merely an illusion when it comes to someone who can control it. While Haru can not control all aspects of time, he can, indeed, manipulate certain features of it. For instance, the main point of his ability is being able to freeze time. This effects all people regardless of distance. In this frozen state, Haru stands out on his own. This gives him a chance to step away from the situation and assess the possibilities, as well as consider all the information he's been given. It also gives him a chance to think without being interrupted. However, while he can move freely about as he pleases, he can not physically mess with anything during this frozen state of time. When he comes in contact with another living being, they will immediately join him in the space outside of time, conscious and unfrozen and able to speak and interact with him only if he maintains contact. If he lets them go, they return to their frozen state.

      As an additional ability, while in this state (and only in this state), Haru can view a variety of situational outcomes. Unfortunately, this power is limited, as there are practically an unlimited amount of possibilities for each and every scenario, all of which can change into a multitude of even more possibilities from the most minuscule occurrence. Instead, he can choose to see a very limited handful of outcomes that he usually brings forth at random, unable to completely tell which might be more or less likely. While he can see which line of events can lead to which outcome, he can only see up to a certain point, and very rarely gets to see them through to their very end.

      So the issue with all of this is that yes, he may know what might happen and how, and may have a chance to act on it to manipulate the situation to have the best outcome, he could just as easily choose the wrong outcome without actually realizing it until it's too late, or until he only has seconds to find a way to fix it. It's not as blinding as shooting a dart in the dark; more like being drunk, spun, and blindfolded with a material that is just barely see-through, then told to make the shot. They key here is to be very good at bluffing.

FAMILY
      Being the Sun, Haru has no immediate family members, but he does believe in the quote "The blood of the covenant is thicker than the water of the womb." This just means that he considers his fellow celestials his family. Although, being how he is, he probably wouldn't hesitate to call all of those alive his family, as he has a deep-rooted love for all.

BIO
      Being billions of years old, Haru has gone through much of his life alone. In the beginning, it was just him, and little else. There was no sentience, no true consciousness. The idea of time was barely a thought in his head--although he has always been very much aware of it. Throughout this time of loneliness and solitude, he burned brightly and harshly. When others starting appearing before him, he was against their existences and refused to acknowledge them. He didn't welcome other lifeforms with open arms. Rather, he thought the presence of others in the universe would ruin the state of things. In the beginning, he did not like change. Things were as they should be, and it was his thinking that those things should forever be that way. It was simple, but it was lonely.

      With age, he grew sense, and over time came to realize that change would come whether he wanted it to or not, as that was how time worked. At first, he was tentative to invite others in, to interact, but he came to understand that, with his years, he had much knowledge to teach and many experiences to share. He began to realize that his lonely existence didn't need to be that way anymore and that being with others could melt his sorrowful heart. He became kinder, more welcome to others. He never knew how truly alone he'd felt until he finally surrounded himself with the presence of others. After that, he was much kinder, passing on his knowledge and beliefs to others, while also keeping an open ear and open mind to accept the things that others could give to him. Other beings were no longer vices, but gifts, and he would cherish them.

      When coming to Earth, he was saddened by their impact on humans. However, his beliefs of "the many over the few" won over his personal hangups, and so he helped come up with the best solution for the problems they caused. Shutting themselves away was never ideal, but it was necessary. Over time, he's tried to remain satisfied with the company given to him by his fellow celestials, but anyone would feel stir crazy locked away for so long. He doesn't believe they were made to be shut off and hidden from the world. They had consciousnesses like any other and they deserved to express themselves in society, to go out and meet with others, learn and experience new things. And so it was with these thoughts that he jumped at the chance for them to leave their shrine, even though he remains well aware that there are consequences to every action.

It is the afternoon of the seventeenth of March, 2854. It is almost nighttime.
It is fairly warm, and it is the night of the planet alignment. All of Japan is full of activity and commotion, with celebrations nearing their start. No human knows what to expect-- especially not the awakening of new celestials. With powers beginning to awaken, and the old celestials and guardians out on the hunt, the night will be anything but simple.

[ OOC; before you post, read up on my previous posts in the OOC thread Plot Development. All people who play an old celestials need to decide which new celestial your character will be looking for. Please do not post until my first post has gone up and we've decided on all that. ]
