Description

Image

Name: Torako Shinta Toushi

Nickname: Tora

Age: 18

Gender: Male

Description: Torako has naturally curly black hair that is layered. His hair is mostly cut around chin-length, though there are some longer pieces, most notably so is a portion of his bangs. His eyes are actually a dark shade of purple due to trauma when he was very young. Unfortunately, he also has extremely poor vision because of the injury and usually wears contacts, though he has been known to wear his glasses on occasion. He's slim, but not extremely so, and he has quite a bit of core and upper body strength. He is usually seen in a pair of black jeans, a red t-shirt, and a black jacket. He's been known to change up the colors or his style every now and then, but he always seems to wear a black and red dog collar around his neck, complete with a fish-shaped pet ID tag that says "little tiger" on it; a very uncreative pun on his name. He also carries around a music composition notepad and a pencil, both of which he keeps safely tucked in the inside pocket of his jacket.

Personality: Torako is blunt to the point of rudeness and his favorite word seems to be 'idiot,' which he calls his friends a lot, though it's actually quite affectionately. He's often quiet, but when he has an opinion he's not afraid to speak up. He often gets lost in his thoughts and has been known to hum melodies while he's distracted. He doesn't seem to notice that he hums them anymore and gets rather embarrassed when somebody points it out. He's very stubborn, but extremely patient. For some reason unknown to him, young children tend to flock to him. He can sing rather well, though he does his utmost to avoid anyone knowing that since he thinks that it's embarrassing. He gets very annoyed when people point out his eye color or poor eyesight, especially when they ask him if he needs help because of it. Something random this way comes.

* Composing music

History: Torako Shinta Toushi was born on February 22nd to Kara and Kenji Toushi. His parents were always ones to make jokes or puns about anything they could, so naturally, when they had a child on the so-called "cat day," they couldn't resist the opportunity to name their little boy Torako, which is made up of the kanjis for 'tiger' (tora) and 'child' (ko). When he was still very young, his parents got in a rather bad fight one night and infant Torako was caught in the crossfire. A couple weeks in the hospital later and it was revealed that the injury had damaged the pigments and vessels in his dark blue eyes, thus creating his rather unnatural dark purple irises. After that, his parents went back and forth between living together and being separated, though they finally got divorced when he was fifteen. He lived with his mother until he was eighteen, when he promptly moved into the dorms at his university of choice, where he studied music composition and learned how to sing to the best of his ability. He is still attending the university and lives in the dorms.

Taiga yawned and stretched as he left the meeting. It was a good day so far; the meeting had gone smoothly and he'd gotten the offering box of the shrine cleaned up. Now he just needed to go back and finish cleaning the ablution pavilion. Pausing in his thoughts as he reached the small gathering of Juunishi at the gate.

Smiling, he pushed his white hair out of his face and waved. "Good morning! You'd all better hurry if you want to get to school and work on time! Also, if you're hungry afterward, you can always stop by the shrine for a snack. I should have some ready by then anyway, so feel free to stop by. Classmates are welcome too so long as you're careful." he waved again as he passed the group, heading back to the shrine.

Within a couple minutes he had arrived, panting slightly from the quick pace he had taken up the steps to the Torii gate. Frowning slightly as he realized the branches of the trees on either side of the gate were beginning to encroach it, he shook his head and continued forward, making a note to deal with it later.

"Good morning, Suki-chan!" he waved to the girl who, he noted, was standing in the yard with an empty bird cage. "I take it the bird is doing much better today?" he smiled as he headed around to the back of the shrine, where the living quarters were.

Little more than five minutes later he was back in the yard wearing a white keikogi and a gray-green hakama and carrying a broom. He quickly set to work sweeping the ablution pavilion. "Suki-chan, you ought to hurry if you're going to make it to school on time. I'll have snacks waiting when you return. Any requests?"



Torako yawned as he got up. Glancing at the clock, he cursed. He'd overslept and was going to have to either rush his trip to the shrine or rush breakfast. Sticking some bread in the toaster, he rushed through his shower and got dressed in his usual red t-shirt, black jeans, and black jacket. Grabbing his toast, cell phone, and wallet, he pulled on a pair of black sneakers as he rushed out the door.

Turning left from his house, he jogged to the turn in the street and left again to go up the flight of stairs to the shrine. Finishing off his toast, he brushed crumbs off himself and headed up the steps. Patting the inside pocket of his jacket to make sure his composition notebook was still there, he sighed in relief. At least he wouldn't have to worry about that today, though he silently cursed himself as he realized he was still wearing his glasses. Waving at the white-haired boy that was sweeping the pavilion, he found himself blushing as he spotted the equally light-haired girl also standing in the yard.

"Um," he took a chance, "excuse me, miss, but are you by any chance going to the university for morning classes?" she looked about the right age to him, so he thought he'd at least try to ask. If nothing came of it, then he'd just make his offering and go on his merry way. "Oh, I'm Torako Toushi, by the way. I go to the music composition portion of the university." he bowed slightly, a rather formal greeting mostly just because he was on the shrine grounds.

Yoshino Mei Sohma


Yoshino woke up during the early hours of the morning, early enough to sit and enjoy watching the sun rise before she thought about preparing for the long day ahead of herself. She was in the shower when she heard her fellow Sohma's, or at least the one's she lived at the Shrine with, get up and begin their own day.

This was her cue to get a move on and she quickly finished up, dried off and got dressed in the high school uniform she was required to wear. By the time she was ready to leave her room she had dried her white-pink hair and placed the long strands in two loose ponytails below her ears and her school blouse and skirt were perfectly creased in all the proper areas. A quick glance in her mirror told her she was good to go and, without another moment's hesitation, the Tiger of the Zodiac grabbed her school bag, shoved her feet into her shoes and confidently strode from the room.

She had a meeting, then school, to attend.

---


After the meeting, Yoshino tiredly rolled her piercing red eyes as she stepped from the large house the 'God' lived in. How she hated to enter that place, to sit under Rin's cold glare as she made sure that everything in the Sohma family was in order. That thought sent shivers down the confident teenager's spine as she quickly left the porch of the detested building behind her and came upon the group that gathered at the gates though she didn't stop much longer than a moment as she called to the others who would be attending school with her.

"See you at school!"

She kept walking as she half-turned to shoot a cheerful smile and wave at the others before continuing on to attend classes. This was just how Yoshino was; confident, cool yet kind, and determined to always be on time. Sure, she didn't like being alone but being late certainly trumped that any day.

Suki Rose Sohma



"Good morning, Suki-chan!" Suki turned when she heard Taiga approaching and speak to her. Taiga was one of the few Sohmas that treated her well, so she trusted him. She smiled and waved back as he came towards the shrine. "Good morning!" She called back softly. "I take it the bird is going much better today?" He asked her, and she nodded as her bright eyes flicked towards the little dove that had hopped off the branch and onto her foot.
"Yes, her wing is better now. She's a friendly one- she got pretty attached so she'll probably nest by the house and hang around." She smiled softly as she kneeled down and allowed the dove to perch itself on her hand.


"Um, excuse me, miss, but are you by any chance going to the university for morning classes?" Suki turned when she heard an unfamiliar voice from behind her. Already being in a good mood, she decided she might as well be friendly. After all, he hadn't done anything to hurt her. Yet.
"Yes, actually. I'm going to the university now. I just switched to the earlier classes. You can come with me, if you'd like." She brushed her long light hair over her shoulder and brushed her little bird off of her hand so she could stand.
"Oh, I'm Torako Toushi, by the way. I go to the music composition portion of the university."
"It's, um, nice to meet you Torako. I'm Suki Sohma." She offered him a somewhat awkward half smile as she stood in front of him.

"You have... beautiful eyes." She murmured thoughtfully, then blinked and blushed. "I'm sorry. That sounded strange didn't it?" Suki chuckled lightly and started off through the woods. "Don't worry, this is a short cut. I'm not taking you into the woods to cut you up into bits or anything."

"It's very nice to meet you, Suki." Torako smiled. This certainly wasn't a bad start to his day besides for the fact that he'd forgotten to take off his glasses at home.
He bit his tongue and resisted the sudden urge to flinch when she commented on his eyes. "Thank you, and don't worry, it wasn't strange at all."
I'm used to it he silently added.

He hesitated a moment when she started walking into the woods, casting a glance back toward the shrine as he thought of the offering he had meant to leave, which was still in his pocket. Shaking his head slightly, he turned and followed the girl into the woods. He was rather hesitant about this venture among the trees, and, as he expected, he tripped almost first thing.

Silently cursing his eyesight as he stood up, he attempted to hurry after Suki.

"Sorry! I'm here!" he said as he finally caught up with her. "I had some trouble with my footing." he chuckled, trying to make light of it.



Taiga couldn't help but smile as he saw Suki heading off through the woods with the boy from before. Continuing sweeping, he finished rather quickly since he'd started sweeping earlier in the morning. Within approximately two hours he was done cleaning up the ablution pavilion and the branches of the tree that had been encroaching the Torii gate had been cut. Heading inside, he started cleaning in there as well as he absently wondered what he ought to make everyone for lunch.
