Gotou Yao

SHSL: Speed-Eater (Poisoner)

0 · 173 views · located in Hope's Peak Academy

a character in “Danganronpa”, as played by arborist

Description

It would be better for our survival if we all got along. I mean, that's how it works in nature, right? Weak animals band together, or they get consumed.

Image

Username: arborist

Character's name: Yō Gotō, SIR! Sorry, ah, force of habit...

Age: 17

Gender: Male

Looks: Not bad-looking, in a 'probably joins the SDF right out of school' kind of way. Due to rigorous self-discipline, Gotou is in good physical condition, but quite stocky. Standing at 5'8, he ends up feeling a bit taller because of his loud, boisterous voice (which has a tendency to crack, when he gets nervous). He has a few chemical burns, one on his right palm, another above his navel, and one down his right leg.

He claims he got them from the family business, which isn't entirely inaccurate...

Always shaves his head. Always. Doesn't matter if he doesn't have a razor, he'll find a way. He'll FIND A WAY. Doesn't really care if stubble grows in, though, and isn't exactly very fashionable; seems to always be wearing his uniform, something practical like a tanktop and jeans, or his parents' workshop uniform. Acts cool and calm around people he's interested in, but no good with pushy/direct people who're interested in him. Blushes like an overripe persimmon.

Talent: SHSL Poisoner, and it's a badly kept secret. His family may (or may not) have been working for the Yakuza/the Government/a Shady Western Pharma Company, and apparently Gotou inherited the family business... But found a more interesting application for all those chemicals. After a rash of mysterious poisonings in Saga Prefecture, however, there was no visible trace of his talent.

The poisonings, which had left many ill, but no dead, were a test. While his goal to create the ultimate, SHSL poison, one that can't be detected via any sense, it's not like he actually wants to hurt anyone, y'know?! Despite his skill with chemicals-as-poisons, he has no real knowledge of chemistry, or anything intellectual. A meathead, in other words.

His 'brilliant' plan to hide as a speed-eater is terribly transparent, especially because he can't help but brag when asked about poisons. Also, isn't a guy with eyebrows that thick suspicious? Upupupu?!

Personality: LOUD. Doesn't like/trust quiet people, who lack SPIRIT. After all, you can't be a po - SHSL Speed-Eater without SPIRIT, right? If nobody else takes charge, he has a tendency to butt in, even though boy is dumb as a sack of potatoes. Possibly dumber. Scholastically, if it's not about Oda Nobunaga or facts about obscure naval battles, he - doesn't know it. And chances are, he's wrong about the other two, too.

Only disciplined/harsh on himself, though. Kind of encouraging to others, in a weird way - once you get past his bluster, at least. He really hates hurting people, and is interested in poison PURELY from an academic standpoint. Cannot understand why people think of it as cowardly, because it's elegant?? Like a gunnery dual, but in the modern era. Was part of the kendo AND baseball clubs, but got kicked out from both, which depresses him to no end. (He was too disruptive for the former, and broke too many bats in the latter.)

Believes that people just need a push to get along in life, and likes being that 'push.' Really likes it when other people try to push him, and is bad at thanking them for that (intentional or not) boost. Bad at thanking people in general, really; blushes, stammers, and just is No Good at That.

Loves period dramas and - privately - romance novels marketed primarily towards women. Terrified of being thought of as immasculine, especially because his father wants a strong and traditional son who'll power-exec with pharmaceutical corporations like it's no thing. But privately? His real, most SHSL fear is that his parents' desires isn't what he wants. And he doesn't know what he wants, and that has lost him many warm, muggy summer nights of sleep...

Relations:

To be determined...

So begins...

(This is a work in progress. Consider it a test post, at this time.)

He woke up with a killer headache; not unusual, but he hadn't been trying anything unusual last night...
Probably?

The afterimages in his eyes cleared up one after another, and the stocky young man pulled himself to his feet. His clean and clear-pressed uniform was familiar if you went to a certain small provincial school; and completely unremarkable, otherwise. But as for what was around him...

Rubbing dust from his somewhat thoughtful brown eyes, Gotou noticed almost immediately that everything had fallen into disrepair. There were layers of dust - and other things, colours and accents that he couldn't readily identify, and he sure hoped were... Paint, or rust, or something...

Stuff like that was everywhere.

But what immediately stood out was the bear.
It appeared to be a small, plush, somewhat cosy black-and-white creature. The kind you'd find in a cheap gift store.

Not exactly hating things like that, Gotou advanced cautiously, gulping down air. The lack of artificial lighting meant that the only source available were what seemed to be lances of natural light, jaggedly piercing through broken windows that neither birds nor insects congregated against. Indeed; if anything...

The entire place seemed dead.

Which is when he heard it; a sound. Jumping to his feet, and placing his hand roughly against his heart (or where he vaguely remembered his heart being), Gotou yelled out a challenge so quickly that his voice cracked -

"H, h, hey! If there's anyone there, SURRENDER IMMEDIATELY! The police, the SDF, and various special agencies, are... Are..."

But he was scared; and confused; and alone.
... Possibly. But - was that the warm and encouraging scent of brewing coffee?

Swallowing deeply, his tone softened - a little hesitant.

"Is - is someone alive, out there..?"
