~Appearance~
"P-please stop calling me cute..."
Takeshi is decently built, at a height of 189cm, with a weight of 69kg. He has a slim body, with Harry Potter-esque knobbly knees. His skin is pale for someone who lives in a hot country, and it is littered with both smaller and larger scars from battle. His hands are somewhat calloused from handling his quinque and he has long, thin fingers, ideal for playing the piano. Takeshi has a feminine face. Large, wide eyes, akin to a child's, with long lashes. A slim nose and a small mouth, along with an oval shaped face. His silky black hair is spiky and reaches down to his neck, with shorter locks framing his face.

Takeshi's face seems to be in a perpetually surprised state, with his mouth hanging open slightly and wide eyes. He fixes it when someone reminds him, but he reverts back quickly after. He tends to drool when distracted, and often you will find him wiping it off of his chin after zoning out. He has an awkward, hesitant smile, although usually genuine. When he walks, Takeshi tends to take small steps, despite having long legs, leading to him tripping awkwardly over himself.

Takeshi wears clothing that is comfortable, but at least a little bit presentable. A white shirt, a blazer, a pair of trousers -- probably creased, and maybe a loose tie is his usual outfit. He is also always seen with a strip of fabric tied around his forehead, over his hair, with two 'bunny ears' at the sides.

"It's a, um, koukaku, but I mainly use it for offense."
Koukaku

~Quinque Description~
"It's like a kukri..."
A knife with a curved blade, allowing for cleaner slices. The handle is short and mainly for melee combat, but can also be thrown at the cost of a messier kill.

~Personality~
[Shy, Absent-minded, Skittish, Humble]
















































Takeshi is generally a quiet, calm man. He goes out of his way to avoid social situations, not because he doesn't enjoy talking to people, but because he has this nagging fear that everyone is judging him. He's quite soft-spoken, with most of his close friends having developed super-hearing to make out what he says. He doesn't stutter much, but he speaks slowly and with gentle intonation. He also has a tendency to pause in the middle of a sentence to recollect what he was going to say. With people he is very close to, Takeshi can actually be quite bright and talkative. He's an introverted person by nature, but he actually does speak, quite a lot. He keeps up a running monologue with his plushies, of which he has a lot. It's childish, but he can talk to them without being judged. Takeshi can be a bit of a pushover, letting his co-workers and superiors walk all over him, without speaking up about his own feelings.

Takeshi is certainly very scatter-brained. He tends to daydream and zone out when he's bored, which is often. A lot of the time he will think back on previous conversations and fret over what he should have said rather than what he did say, causing him much anxiety. His head will be far off in the clouds while walking, and he often drops things or does things incorrectly without realising until he's snapped out of it by someone else. You can usually tell when he's not paying attention, because he will be drooling up a storm. A lot of the time he will forget to pay attention when someone asks him a question, and they will either have to tell him again or he will try and pretend he was listening.

He's skittish and anxious. Takeshi is scared of what other people think of him, and ends up avoiding people as a result. Most people agree that while Takeshi is very talented and good at his job, he needs more force of will and to be less shy. He's nervous and high strung around strangers, usually doing his best to blend into the background. His superiors, when asked, would usually say that Takeshi has enough potential and skill to become an Associate Special Class, or even a Special Class ranking member, if only he had more of a disposition towards leadership.

Takeshi is humble, not liking to boast or brag despite his early rise through the ranks in the CCG, among other things. He doesn't act very self-important. The very opposite, in fact -- he has quite low self-esteem. He feels that whatever he does isn't good enough. He can be impatient while waiting for the results of his efforts, working very hard only to be disappointed when it takes too long for his hard work to be rewarded. This is partly the reason he climbed up the CCG ladder so fast -- he wanted to get high up, fast, only to stagnate at First Class. He desperately wants to do something notable to get promoted to Associate Special Class or Special Class.

Beyond his quiet demeanour, Takeshi is a bit of an angry person. Not at others, but at himself. He tends to set himself up for failure by expecting too much of himself, but failing to meet those expectations. He gets frustrated at himself, and thinks that if he doesn't like himself, then others much think far worse. Takeshi likes to succeed, and hates failing even at new things. He wants to be perfect so that he can meet the expectations of his family and protect his siblings, but falls just short with his social anxiety and is constantly kicking himself for him. Underneath the surface, a bubbling stew of self-loathing, pressure and stress is just waiting to erupt, if only the right trigger would come along.

For years the fourteenth ward has been at peace. Ghouls that roamed the city were now deemed as non-hostile beings, and everyone was at ease. They coexisted for the time being. But then, attacks on both species suddenly skyrocketed. Many were being killed, and everyone was now in a state of panic. Soon, the group of ghouls that led the attacks revealed themselves. Calling themselves the Shinku Fang. The CCG investigated and could find nothing on who the six ghouls were. Their peace had been taken once again.

Currently, the group of agents and ghouls selected to stop them was standing in front of a building over in the fourteenth ward; where all the havoc was happening. Their mission was to simply capture, and turn in the group of terrorist ghouls before they took over the ward, and eventually the CCG in the twentieth. Yes, the leader Mr. Smiley had openly revealed their plans to the authorities; just for a kick of fun. After all, they'd need help anyway, right? A head start was what Shinku gave them, they were lucky the leader was feeling generous at the time.

But of course the group of recruited specimens' mission was proving to be difficult. No attacks had occurred at all since about a month ago long before they arrived, which was only today. Citizens were on edge, anticipating the next news report of a dead human or ghoul, but nothing. Perhaps Shinku was playing a silly little game. It is their nature of course. Aside from all that, it'd be hard to choose roommates for these 'young' fellows. With so many clashing personalities, there were sure to be some interesting moments.

Meanwhile, the Sparrow, said leader's right hand man(woman) was watching this group of people from inside the building's lobby, through the glass front doors. The rest of the group were disguised as various staff, waiting for the right moment to strike. There were many humans in this quaint hotel. Which one would they choose to kill? The first encounter would finally take place.

Let the games begin.

The two siblings, having donned costumes to give the appearance of them being employees in the fancy hotel. The older, Kazumi, has their hair tied up in a fluffy ponytail to keep their long, waist-length fuchsia hair out of the way. Their younger sibling Kiyomi wears her hair in pigtails as per usual. Kiyomi sits on the front counter with her legs swaying back and forth, looking tragically unprofessional. Her older sibling has to gently swat her off of it (to which she pouts).

❝Kazu-nee, Kazu-nee! When are we gonna get to do stuff? I'm so boooored! I wanna do fun stuff! I wanna do stuff that's really fun!❞ The eccentric teenager bounces up and down, looking up at her sibling hopefully. Kazumi does not hold all the answers, but Kiyomi rather acts like they do.

Kazumi sighs and leans against the counter, opening their mouth wide for a yawn. It is rather dull here, having to wait around for the perfect time to strike, and disguising themselves as employees does not do much for the entertainment factor. The two eccentric and bubbly siblings must tone down their usual personalities (though Kiyomi doesn't seem to be doing so too well). The older sibling reaches out and ruffles her hair, to which Kiyomi giggles.

❝Patience, patience, Kiyocchi. Your adooooring Oneesan loves to see you so eager, but we should wait for a sign from Smiley-san.❞ Kazumi boops her nose, which she covers with her hands. ❝Then, we'll find some pretty young boys for me to eat riiiight up, and we'll find cute girls for you to play with~ ❤❞

Dialogue #5e62b8Thoughts #b55eb8




"Just when i thought I'd finally catch a break, huh?" Dual mutters to herself as she pays for a can of soda from a vending machine right across from the hotel where the members of the CCG that were sortied to the fourteenth were supposed to meet up. Opening the can and taking a sip in between puffs of smoke from her cigarette, Dual observed the building from where she currently was. From the outside of the building, everything looked perfectly fine. proceeding her observation further, she glanced around her surroundings through her peripherals. Nothing seems out of the ordinary around either. She dropped her cigarette and promptly stamped it out while taking a long chug of the soda she held in her hand.

She had arrived some time ago and was observing the meet up location, waiting for the remainder of the group. As the senior investigator in charge of the case, Dual had the duty to arrive her on time and before everyone else. Although, admittedly, she had arrived a bit later than planned, just in time to see one person snag some keys and head into the depths of the building. Based on that alone, she had to assume that the possibility of other people having arrived before her was likely.

To be honest, I really don't wanna head in just yet. But I suppose I might as well see if anyone else checked in before I arrived. She thought to herself as she finished off her drink. Crushing the can in her hands, she turned towards a nearby recycling bin and tossed it. Pulling out another cigarette and lighting it, she quickly jogged across the street towards the hotel, the metallic case fastened to her back making the run more awkward than it should have been. She entered the building and took a glance around the room. It was pretty plain and simple, but it was fashionable in its own right. She turned back towards the main counter, but thought twice before addressing the two managing it. They seemed rather... eccentric and unpleasant to deal with.

With a puff of smoke, she decided she'd just wait in the lobby for now. She'd rather not deal with the pink-themed duo, it felt like work just looking at them. Instead, she chose to walk over and sit down on one of the chairs in the lobby. She unfastened the case on her back and put it down between her legs on the floor. "This would be such a good time for a nap..." Dual said aloud, as she stretched her arms upwards. However, she knew that a nap was something she couldn't take. She had to watch the entrance of the building, just in case another member had entered. For the time being, she'd just sit back and relax with her smokes.

Dialogue #5e62b8Thoughts #b55eb8




Dual's lazy expression softened ever so slightly at the sight of another member of the CCG walking into the building. The cigarette which she had been holding in between her lips nearly fell to the ground. Though she would not admit it herself, she almost outright shrieked at the sight of the junior investigator headed towards her. What the heck? What dimwit made this adorable kid be a fighter? She's a doll! She shouldn't be on the damn battlefield! At least, that what Dual was thinking. On the exterior, however, she managed to hold herself back by biting hard on the end of her cigarette, although careful enough to not chew right through the paper. However, despite how cute she thought the other to be, she couldn't help but scowl at the introductions made. Her eyes quickly scanned the room to see if any eyes were fixated on their position, but, in her immediate line of sight, there appeared to be none. Granted, scanning your surroundings without being too conspicuous is not too simple of a task, especially if you happen to be able to see out of only one.

"Y'know, we're in enemy territory. You can't just flat out say who we are. You don't know who might be listening," Dual said with an exasperated sigh as she softly rubbed her forehead. "You ain't wrong, but we don't know whose listening in on us. Though chances are they already are aware of our presence. Doesn't take much of a genius to know we would be taking action sooner or later." With a troubled smile she sat up straight and tilted her head forward slightly, as a sort of mock bow, and returned the handshake with Tori. Out of the corner of her eye, Dual noticed another person enter the building. She caught a glimpse of white hair and was about to comment, but was stopped short by Tori's offer.

Dual took a second to let the proposal sink in. Well, as far as the Investigators go, she ain't wrong. It's only us two girls. I personally don't mind bunking with either a guy or girl, but maybe she does. In any case, Dual couldn't resist the offer from such an adorable person. "Well, since you've taken the time to make such a generous offer with me, I don't see why not. Thanks." Dual replied, letting a more peaceful smile spread across her face. "Ah, by the way, Dual's fine, kiddo. I'm not into the whole respect for the seniors thing. Not like I'm much of a senior anyways."

Leaning back into her chair, Dual adjusted her position ever so slightly as to allow the duo at the desk to enter her field of view. Partway through her chat with Tori, Dual noticed the person who had entered previously walk over to them. While she did scan the files given to her prior to sortie, she had only glanced at the files of the ghouls. More specifically, she can match the name to the face and that's about all. She took off one of the ear-like accessories off of her head, and pretended to fiddle around with it as she observed. The one who had previously entered the building before, Esmé or so Dual remembered, looked absolutely adorable as well. Dual was sure that Esmé was fully capable of carrying herself (Dual only skimmed the files, mind you. She honestly believes thus far that Esmé is of the female gender) and would likely not require her assistance if something happened, but ghoul or not, Dual was in charge of the group. She had to be prepared to step in at a moments notice, should push come to shove. After all, she couldn't help but shake the feeling that they were being monitored... from more places than one.

Shiori hummed happily as she skipped towards the hotel where she would meet up with her fellow co-workers. Before she entered, however, she did a little inspection around the building. After all, it wouldn't do to get surrounded all of a sudden. She wasn't exactly bothered to actually make sure properly -- the others were sure to have already checked, right? So after a quick lap around for assurance, Shiori walked straight in the door.

The first thing she noticed was the distinct lack of boys in the lobby, unless the weird pink thing was a guy. All of the staff and all of her co-workers seemed to be female. She wasn't so surprised about her co-workers all being girls -- the CCG was surprisingly female dominated lately -- but all of the hotel staff seemed to be girls, and also ghouls for that matter. 'Oh well. I bet there'll be dudes deeper inside. I'm totally just being paranoid!' She thought, before walking up to the pair of doves conversing at the desk. "Hi! You're my superior officers or something, right? Dual Sumire and Hayashi Tori? Nice to meet you! I'm Kimura Shiori, but you can call me Shiorin!" Shiori held out both of her hands to shake, "You have such pretty names, I'm jealous~" She joked in an attempt to lighten the mood. Everything seemed to frighteningly professional at the moment, and since she was going to be working with them for a while, why not start off with a joke?

Shiori looked around at the other people in the room -- two employees with shocking pink hair, a random visitor who hadn't moved from her spot ('Maybe she's waiting for someone?'), and two little girls, one reading and the other looking to throw away a cup of coffee ('They're both ghouls as well... So many in one room! I suppose they're working with me too?'). 'Well, this day is getting off to a boring start.' She thought in annoyance.

Takeshi panted as he cycled down to the hotel at top speed. He was absolutely late -- he was certain that everyone else must have gotten there before him! The stacks of paper in the basket weighed down the bicycle, slowing it somewhat, and for a moment he wondered whose idea it had been to leave all of the paperwork to him to fill out. But regardless of that, he was late! What kind of example would he be setting as a leader with this?! 'Everyone must be thinking that I'm so irresponsible! Oh, I bet they all think that I'm a terrible worker and that I'm not fit for this mission...' His mind started to jump to conclusions in a panic. This was when he realised, while he was worrying, he had began to head straight for a tree by the hotel. Takeshi pulled on the brakes and the cycle stopped just in time to not hit the tree... But all of his papers flew out onto the ground. 'Ugh, idiot!' He berated himself as he got out to gather them, 'Maybe if you hadn't been so busy freaking out, this wouldn't have happened!'. With a sigh, Takeshi locked his bike to the tree and ran into the hotel.

As soon as he was inside, he realised that everyone else really had arrived. "Um... Sorry to keep you waiting." He said awkwardly to nobody in particular. He looked around for a familiar face, and recognised Dual. Takeshi walked up to her, seeing that she seemed to be talking to some other people working with them. "Ah, sorry to interrupt, but... I have all of the paperwork, so, um, if anything gets damaged in battle or something, we should be fine, so..." He trailed off, "I-I'll just leave this on the desk for now until we, er, get rooms.". Takeshi glanced around, wondering what he should do, now that the matters with the paperwork had been settled. He walked deeper into the building, looking for somewhere to fill his empty, breakfast-less stomach. Needless to say, the morning had left him more than a little strazzled.

And so, the two wait, blissfully ignorant of all of the negative attention they seem to be gaining. Though a glare from Kana humbles the siblings, their gazes lowering to the desk. Kiyomi stops her bouncing, and Kazumi tugs at a few strands of their hair. ❝Scary, scaaaary!❞ say the two of them together, though very much under their breath and to each other.

It isn't long before the two at the front desk receive a visitor in the form of a child—no, not a child, but a very small ghoul. The scent is delectable, and for a moment, the two siblings have to fight over their urges to lose themselves internally. Some higher power muuuuust be testing us for sending such an adooooorably delicious ghoul to us. Before Kiyomi gets the chance to speak up, Kazumi raises their hand, beckoning the 'child' forward.

❝Absolutely, little dove! Are your parents around?❞ They step out from behind the counter and bend toward Esme, as Kazumi seems to tower over Esme in an almost comical display. ❝That is a lovely dress you have on! Where did you get such a dress?❞ They reach out for the empty drink to be discarded, a wide, close-lipped grin on their features. Kiyomi claps her hands together, circling once around the 'child.' She looks absolutely ecstatic, as Esme appears to her as an adorable young girl, and girls of all ages happen to be Kiyomi's favorite thing.

❝Uwaah, did you really lose your parents?❞ Kiyomi's question comes out of left field, as Esme left no indication of this, but it's expected of the slightly dim-witted younger sibling. ❝You can stay with us until you see them again! Kazu-nee's right—you have a really cute dress. I used to wear dresses juuuust like that when I was your age. How old are you?❞

As the two siblings bombard the supposed child with questions, plans unfold along around them. No matter what becomes of this ghoul-child, the two will have their fun, just as everyone else will have theirs, as well. Whether they've been enlightened of Esme's true nature or not would be ambiguous, but one thing the siblings do know for sure—this one smells an awful lot like those CCG bastards.
