Akito "Ryuu" Hayashi

"An illusion is all how your mind perceives the world. Be careful, though. Nothing is ever as it seems."

0 · 342 views · located in Chihana Host Club, Tokyo, Japan

a character in “One Thousand Flowers”, as played by RainWish


Full Name: Akito Hayashi

Stage Name: Ryuu

Age: 21


Ryuu wears his medium length hair naturally, allowing it to fall in place without much of an effort on his own part. He is average height, perhaps slightly taller. Ryuu's frame is a lean, slender build that makes him appear taller than he actually is. He's true appearance is difficult to describe, but most noticeable is the small, half smile he wears. His eyes glitter with pleasure and sincerity. He wears simple black slacks and a grey or black dress shirt. Ryuu has no body piercings or tattoos because he does not want to ruin his image for his "adult life" once he must retire from hosting. However, he does wear a ring on each finger. Ryuu will also occasionally wear a white masquerade mask when hosting along with a long, dark cape. There is no true reason for this other than to see people's reactions and to escape from his quiet demeanor. In this cosplay, he will wear white gloves and a top hat, usually when he wants to impress his clients (or the other hosts) with a new trick. He also always years a necklace of a silver dragon. This is where his nickname ("dragon spirit") comes from, aside from his ominous, all-knowing aura.


Personality: Ryuu's personality is usually reserved and calm. He can easily blend into the background when the time suits him and simply watch upon the scene. He often will not speak unless invited into a conversation, and even then he tends to remain a passive bystander. He is a gentleman, treating every woman as the princess he believes them to be, while not overstepping his bounds as a host. Conversely , when permitted Ryuu will bring himself into the spotlight through tricks and dynamic shows to impress his clients. He favors illusions, constantly trying to test the limits of the human mind. He is well educated and of higher birth, causing him to respect others while not appearing to be demeaning. When alone he will be found reading, walking outside, or practicing a new illusion.

Ryuu has learned how to hid his emotions, his expression always cheerful and calm. When angered, he will pull away from the antagonist and allow himself to calm down rather than strike out viscously to regret it later. He has a rational mind and is an existentialist, believing that life is only meant to be enjoyed and contains no logic.
Likes: The waltz, being romantic, making women feel beautiful, people not understanding his tricks, the violin, the piano, silence, calm, hosting, and being in control.

Dislikes: Being drunk, men being rude to women, a song being interrupted, people not enjoying nature, ignorant people.

Fears: Dying without really living.

Goals: To live his life to the fullest. He refuses to submit to old world protocol, although he knows that one day he will need to. He hopes, however, to one day settle down with a women that can actually capture his attention.

Quirks: Ryuu will never tell his secrets of a trick. He treats everyone with the utmost respect, no matter their social ranking or age.


Years of Hosting: 3

Number of Named Customers: 10

Hosting Talents: Illusions, magic tricks, storytelling, playing the violin or piano, dancing, respect.

In the History Section.

Family: His only family left is his grandparents that he goes out to the countryside to visit once a year.

Crush: (You may add TBA)

History: Ryuu grew up the youngest sibling of three to a rich merchant and his wife. He had a brother (4 years older) and a sister (3 years older). The family was served on hand and foot by many servants and chiefs. Ryuu was always bored with this lifestyle and preferred to spend his evenings in the woods by himself. One evening, on his tenth summer while away on a walk, Ryuu returned home to find his home set ablaze. No one survived.

Alone and orphaned, Ryuu only had the clothing on his back and the silver dragon pendant that his sister had given him for his past birthday. He was sent to live with his grandparents as his legal guardians. Privately wealthy and strict, they hired only the best tutors and lessons for their grandson, training him to be the perfect gentleman and giving him the skills to one day take over the family company. Ryuu loathed the constant lessons. He turned toward illusions for his only entertainment as his grandmother forbade television and internet. At the age of eighteen, he left his grandparent's estate for the city. He enjoys the freedom that the night life can give him, but has never forgotten about his strict upbringing. He stumbled upon Chihana quite by accident two years into his career and decided that this new club sounded interesting. He joined it immediately, bringing many of his old clients with him as well as forming a new clientele.

Example Post:
Ryuu yawned, his long, lithe body sliding out from between the sheets of his bed. It took a moment for his dark eyes to adjust to the sunlight pouring in from the drawn shades as life below bustled beyond the barrier of his window. He yawned and leaned against the window frame to peer down to the street. The civilians appeared to me nothing more than giant ants sunning about, feting food and money for their queen. What a bore.

He stretched his arms and began to dress for the day, pausing only to gaze into the mirror and nod in approval to his limber frame in satisfaction. You're too skinny. You're wasting your life. Get your head out of the clouds and come back to the family business. Ryuu sighed heavily, imagining the taunts his grandmother would have for him when it came to his yearly visit back to the countryside manner. She always had something the disagree with how Ryuu chose to live his life. But she was right. It was only a matter of time before his looks would run out on him and the family business would become his only option. But, until that day, Ryuu intended to live his life as he pleased.

He dressed quickly, not allowing himself the luxury of wasting the sunlit hours of the day. As usual, he went for a walk to help wake himself up. It was a lovely day. As dusk grew near, he glanced to his pocket watch and smiled softly to himself. It was almost time. He made his way back to the Chihana, hurrying so not to be late and upset the manager. That would never be good, in any situation. He returned to his room to freshen up before descending down to the lower level of the club, smiling as he saw his first client of the night. "My lady," he said with a casual smile, bowing as a rose appeared to materialize in his hand for the blushing woman. "I hope I did not keep you waiting for long." He laughed slightly and took the women by the arm, sweeping her further into the club for a night of entertainment.

So begins...

The look Eien gave the hosts as they filtered through into the kitchen could only be described as cold. He was not pleased that they had woken so late – the customers would be arriving any minute, and when the hosts got up late it meant that Eien had to entertain the customers for half an hour, and hour, sometimes more while the hosts prepared for the night. Eien was the best host there – he had seventy customers named to him – so it was not exactly difficult for him to entertain the girls until the hosts were ready, but that wasn’t the point, was it? One of the reasons that he had taken up managing his own host club was because managers, and other hosts of their ranks, only had to host a few times each month to keep their customers happy.

Eien, with such lazy hosts as he had, found himself hosting for an hour every. Single. Night. He was not happy with this.

“Yes, yes, ohayou gozaimasu (good morning), now shut up and eat. Breakfast is in the oven,” he jerked his head at the machine, which was lit, to reveal a rather large stack of pancakes and sausages within. One of the first signs that the quirky manager did not really hate his hosts as much as he said he did – he always had breakfast made for them when they got up, whether he bought it or cooked it himself. “We have some new guests coming tonight. Get yourselves ready. I’ll be down entertaining them, so hurry up.”


“Sorry, sorry,” Rai mumbled, watching as Ai jerked awake and began checking his blood-sugar levels. He was too groggy to really register what it was that Ai was doing, or the fact that he adjusted his pump, otherwise he might have been more nervous. But it was too early in the morning to panic beyond being scared awake my their Manager. “Eien-san woke me up…”

He shook his head slowly, running his hands through his red-brown hair and rolling off of his futon. He did not bother to take his blanket with him, though he slept with nothing but his underwear on. They were all men, they all saw people naked more often than most people did. Even Ai, who was brand new, should be able to deal with someone as pretty as Rai walking away from them and wearing no pants or shirt.

“Dunno,” he answered Ai’s question about the time. “Guess it must be almost seven, if Eien’s that angry. The guests’ll be here any minute and we’re not fed yet.” He laughed lightly, even as he winced, running his hand gingerly over his side. Just as he had thought. The bruise on his side was large, considering the size of the heel that had struck him, and such a dark blue it was nearly black. She really had hit him hard… absentmindedly he wondered if he’d cracked a rib. “Ne, Ai, you have some pain meds somewhere around here…?”

Ryuu smiled to himself as the hosts began to file into the room, continuing to peel and slice his apple directly into his mouth. He was careful not to allow any of the juice to drip on his outfit, knowing that a messy host was a cheap host. And, at the current, Ryuu was anything but a cheap host. He took only a single pancake, wanting to make sure there was enough for everyone.

"Wasn't the busboy supposed to start hosting tonight..."

Ryuu nodded in response to this. He himself had been awaiting Ai's appearance. Even subtly, each host had their own theme by the way they dressed. Ryuu was curious as to how the newest member would choose to present himself and what talent he would use to capture attention. He noticed many small messages about people that were often overlooked, including the fact they Eien cared more than he was willing to admit. At this, Ryuu chuckled and slid the deck of cards out of his chest pocket, carefully checking once again that they were all there and in place. "He will be here shortly, give the boy some faith. I'm sure he's nervous. Not everyone is as natural as you are, Kami."

"Yah, Ushio-chan, the rankings," Kami said lazily. "The customers gotta know who's the most expensive tonight."

At this, Ryuu paused and placed his cards down to gance at the manager. Yes, that had been forgotten. Although the ranking was not overly important to Ryuu, it was nice to be appreciated for his work. For the most part, he genially enjoyed being a host and the company of the other hosts. But still, to say that he wasn't curious would be a blatant lie. "Aye, you must be getting forgetful in your old age, Ushio-sama. No wonder you find yourself entering our clients," he joked gently.

Daichi mentally slapped himself at the way he had forgotten about the rankings so quickly. He could only stay quiet as Kami spoke about the new host, only a smirk craved his lips. A quiet laugh cutting his voice from it's silence only to be hushed once more as Ryuu spoke. 'Now, to only text Miami about Mizuki...' Daichi thought quietly as he began to text once more.

He thoughts as they went on from Mizuki and Miami, we're cut off as Ryuu commented on Eien being old. Wasn't the man only 27 or something? Did Ryuu want a death wish, because at this moment, Daichi looked nervous for the boy. Putting his phone away with a small smirk once more as his sister texted back.

"Aye aye!" Daichi groaned, misreading his text as he took it back out and reread it. "Leave it to Miami-chan to let Mizuki-chan drive on her first time to the red light district. Now their lost..." Daichi groaned out look annoyed. "Looks like they may be late." Daichi muttered, only to look at Kami quickly. "Mind telling my sister to never ever let Mizuki drive?" Daichi joked slightly as he took out a pancake and ate it quickly before texting again.

Daichi stared at the next text message he received, a smile craving on his lips as a laugh came out. "Eh, such air heads..." Daichi said with a smile, scratching the back of his head. Daichi blushed slightly, forgetting he was in the room with others. Quickly, he recovered as he texted back and shut off his phone.

Daichi could only wonder what customers little Ai would get, even though Dachi felt he shouldn't care, he ended up caring always in the end.
