0 · 219 views · located in Music Room 3

a character in “Riverdell High School Host Club”, as played by Captain Obvious

Description

Image

Name: Kuma Kobayashi "A pleasure to meet you."

Nickname: It varies from person to person "Call me whatever you please, as rose by any other name and so on."

Gender: Male "I'm not entirely sure how to take that, so we'll say it's a compliment. Thank you!"

Year: Second "One year behind me, one year ahead. It's a year sandwich, or maybe a three-year layer cake. That would be great."

Age: 16 "Do I not look my age?"

Sexual Orientation: Depending on who you ask, either asexual or pansexual. "I'm not sure I understand the question. Would you mind elaborating for me?"

Likes: Sweets of any kind Regardless of what my friends, and my uncle Vinnie... and the school, may think, I do not have a problem with sugar." He does.
Shakespearean literature "Better a witty fool than a foolish wit."
Making others happy "The greatest joy in life, that I've encountered thus far, is to see another give a genuine smile."
People "I like everyone. Some people can be a bit difficult, but I like them all the same."


Dislikes: Not being able to get an explanation "In truth, I still don't know what exactly a host is supposed to do, and no-one will tell me either. I've just been winging it."
Fake flowers "I understand that some people have allergies, but paper cannot carry the same magic as the real thing. Plus, they never smell like real flowers, even if they are scented."
The rare occasion in which he has to "be mean" "I hate when it comes down to it, but sometimes you need to reason with people who just don't want to be reasoned with. I am very capable of resolving those kinds of situations, though I won't be happy about it."

Personal Description: Kuma is short for a male of his age, standing at only 5' 3, with a slight frame and an odd, seemingly unconscious habit of moving about lightly, producing little to no noise, in spite of his typical manner of bouncing around. He fits many of the typical bishounen traits such as: silky, flowing hair, long, slender limbs, and more prominent eyelashes. This, combined with his normal mannerisms and baring, adds greatly to his appeal as a host. With his light-blond hair, his bright blue eyes, and his ever-present radiant smile, Kuma's appearance has been described by some of the host's customers as that of "an angel", or, by one, "an anthropomorphic ray of sunshine".

Kuma is never seen wearing the school uniform, and indeed, may not even own one. Instead, his usual attire consists of his white frilled dress shirt, always with a freshly-picked rose in the pocket, comfortable slacks, and spotless dress shoes. Despite this blatant dress-code violation, neither the student council, nor any member of the faculty, have ever brought this up, exactly why this is the case is currently unknown. In fact, he doesn't even know he's breaking a rule. "Unlike some, I like the way I look. Not to the point of being egotistical about it, at least I think I'm not egotistical, though I suppose that most people who are egotistical don't think they are. Anyways, I'm still happy with myself."

Personality: Kuma is outgoing, energetic, happy, and hyperactive, not to mention his habit of occasional unnecessary verbosity. He is quick in both thought and action, and even quicker to switch between trains of thought, leading to many instances in which he speaks and acts in non sequiturs. In sharp contrast to this, he is actually very intelligent and possesses an eidetic memory, leading to him doing quite well in school. He genuinely seems to like everyone, even those who act rudely towards him, and tries to make friends with everyone. He is however, undyingly loyal to the friends he does make, and would do just about anything for them. He is rather naive, and romantically clueless. In fact, he has a good deal of difficulty separating the various types of love which can lead to some awkward situations when he brings a friend a bouquet of roses "just because". Kuma also has an odd habit preforming cartoonish activities that should be impossible. Oddly enough, this tends to go either unnoticed or ignored by most others. Finally, he occasionally makes comments or actions that would be considered "breaking the fourth wall", were this a work of fiction. Of course, seeing how this is clearly not the case, most other people tend to just ignore it. "Yep, that pretty much sums me up. When is this character sheet going to be finished anyways?"

History: Contrary to his appearance, and his presence at a school for the rich, Kuma was originally born is a small town to a lower-class family. This only lasted until Kuma was two years of age, when a mysterious blaze overtook the town, burning the whole place to the ground overnight. Exactly how Kuma managed to be one of the few survivors, while the rest of his family perished, is unknown, and he himself does not remember the incident. Regardless of how it came to be, the young Kuma was sent to the nearest orphanage. While many potential adopters were drawn in by his cute appearance and ludicrously cheery personality, they decided in the end to go with other children instead, whether due to his insanely talkative nature, or they were eventually creeped out by just how cheerful he was. Finally, in a bizarre turn of events, he was adopted, at the age of ten, by the boss of the local mob who, for reasons he refused to talk about, was unable to produce an heir. Since then, he has lived quite the luxurious, if occasionally dangerous, lifestyle. For his highschool years, he has been sent to Riverdell Academy. "I actually didn't mind the orphanage, but dad and his friends are awesome, so I don't regret a thing."

Extra: Kuma is in the habit of breaking into song a minimum of once per day, usually with inexplicable musical accompaniment. Oh, is this the part where I get to sing?" And then the character sheet was finished. "Aww."

So begins...

Koga completely blocked everyone and everything out around him, as he rested his face in his hand while writing in his journal.

Today is just as boring as all the other days. Everyone else may be getting ready for the girls to arrive, but I am already ready--


Koga stopped for a minute. That doesn't sound right... Koga exhaled. Synonyms or replacement words I could use for. He scratched the back of his head. Arranged, completed, done, finished, covered, equipped... Then it hit him. Prepared. He scratched out 'ready'.

Today is just as boring as all the other days. Everyone else may be getting ready for the girls to arrive, but I am already ready prepared.


Koga covered his face with his palm. Prepared sounds stupid. Koga sighed and closed his journal. Whatever, no use in writing in it now. Just as Koga was placing his journal inside his coat, he looked towards the door and seen... Hm. Koga couldn't decide whether this was a young man, or a young woman. I'll figure this out, one way or the other. Koga stood out of his chair, and slid his hands into his pockets. I don't feel like dealing with this person right now. Koga walked towards the other hosts, and pointed at Mitsu. Better let them deal with it.

They were both getting ready to open up the host club for today. Of course for now they were sitting in a chair. It wasn't really a chair so much as a throne. With Hideaki sitting on the left and Akihiko on the right. It wasn't a cosplay day or anything, so they were both wearing their normal school uniforms, but they were wearing their usual crowns. It was a sunny day with mild clouds. From their "chair" they could see Sayoran setting the tables and Koga writing something. Of course, when the heard the door open Hideaki was the first of the two to look over. Nudging his brother a bit he said, "Hey, is that the new student? The one of the scholar?"

"Why yes, I think it is, I wonder what brought him here," Akihiko started to wonder. Then he looked at his brother and they both started to walk over to Mitsu. Walking in line each looking like the shadow of the other, until they reached Mitsu. Course today was one of the days Hideaki straightened his hair, so they really did look identical except for their eye color. No one usually notice this though, becasue it covered their eyes.

"Looking from your outfit..." "You are a scholar..." "Or else you would be wearing..." "The school uniform. But no matter, Welcome to..." "The Host Club."

They both smile in unison waiting for a response.

Suddenly, without so much as the sound of a door handle turning, Kuma entered the room, accompanied by an inexplicably shower of slow-falling peach blossoms. "Bonjour mes amis! Sorry I'm late; I had some family issues that needed to be taken care of." he said, throwing his arms wide, as if to embrace everyone in the room, or perhaps even the room itself. He spotted Walker standing up, the Nakashima twins and Koga, Kyou, and near the table was Syaoran and- was that someone new? Lying on the floor?

The moment Kuma spotted someone he didn't recognize, lying prone by a mass of shattered glass, he made his way over to their side, intending to assist them in getting up. Of course, logically, since Syaoran was closer, he was able to get there first. As such Kuma instead voiced what he believed the other host was trying to ask. "Are you alright...?" He had meant to add sir or miss to the end of that question, but he wasn't completely certain about the gender of the newcomer. The voice suggested that they were female, but the attire made it rather unclear. "Sorry, I can't quite determine your gender. And by that I mean the second definition, since I couldn't actually decide for it to be one or the other, but of course you probably knew that. Then again, perhaps it isn't wise for me to act as though I know what others are and aren't aware of. My name is Kuma Kobayashi, and this is Syaoran Takeba. You are?"

#, as written by Kaire23
Ritsu winced in pain as she finally noticed the cuts. A man rushed over and helped her up as he gave her a look which was the equivalent to ask if she was okay. She felt blood drip down the cut on her jaw. her hand quickly went to it and tried to wipe away the blood quickly. How clumsy could she be!?

"I'm fine, thank you though." She said with a shaky smile. Just then, another man entered the room.

Looking at him, he came up and asked her name and if she was alright.

"M-my name is Mistu Sazaki... And I'm fine... I'm so sorry... I didn't mean to bump into that. Please forgive me. I promise to pay you all back." She repeated again to this man.

Koga noticed her fall back onto the very expensive vase. Koga was about to face palm, but he seen that she was injured so, he sighed and walked towards the back room, got a first-aid kit and went back out. He kneeled down before Mitsu. "How do you expect to pay us back, commoner? That vase costs over 3,000,000ÂĨ..." He pulled out a rag and wiped all the blood away from her face, then applied disinfecting cream on it. "It will sting a bit."

After cleaning her wound up, he placed a band-aid on her face, and got a good glance at her face. Okay, this is definitely a female... Koga closed everything up, and gathered the bloody rag. He walked back into the backroom to put the cotton ball he used to apply the disinfecting cream to her face with in the garbage, as well as the bloody rag. He put the first-aid kit back where it belonged, and sighed. How annoying...

Syaoran was about to go get the first aid kit when Koga came over with it and took care the cut on the commoner's face. Through the coversation that followed Syaoran learned that his name was Mitsu, and that HE was really a SHE. And to pay off the crystal ornaments she would be working as a host. Syaoran's senses compensated for his lack of a voice, so his hearing was slightly better than the others. He heard female voices outside the room. Realizing that it must be time for the club to start he lightly tapped Koga's shoulder, then tapped his own wrist, trying to tell him that it was time to start. Then he got the tray from the tea sets he had been putting down earlier and started putting the pieces of glass on it. As he picked them up, he thought about what could be done with the pieces. Then it came to him. The chandelier in the room didn't have anything hanging off it, if they strung pieces on wire that matched the chandelier's color and tied them to it, it would look really pretty. The glass was many different colors after all. He finished picking the pieces up and set the tray back down on the table, then he went and got his notebook and pencil from his table. He wrote something down on it, then went over to the twins and showed it to them. Since they were the host club's founders he would need their permission to do this. Do you think we could use the glass pieces to decorate the chandelier? Was what the notebook said.

The twins stepped back for a bit as everyone else seemed to swarm around the girl. Well after listening they learned she was a girl, but no matter, she didn't really seem to pick up on it. When the crystal broke they looked at each other. She started to ramble about paying for it, but she didn't even have the uniform. The idea of her entering the host club came up. The twins agreed, without saying anything, that it might work.

Of course Walker was teasing Koga like always. Kuma helped clean her off and Kyou seemed to be staying out of the hype for a while. Sayoran started to walk over to the twins and showed some writting on the notebook he always carried around.Do you think we could use the glass pieces to decorate the chandelier?

Course that would be a lovely idea. Akihiko nodded at Sayoran with approval. Then they walked up to Mitsu which was her name and Koga."So if you want..." "To join the Host Club..." "We could teach you."
