"I'm quite proud of my name, is there anything wrong about that?"

☠ Nickname ☠
Yoshi|| Hes called Yoshi because his nickname used to be Oishi and he was a fan of Mario whenever he was young.
Haki|| Just the shortened version of his name, nothing special.

"My nickname really is just a joke."

☠ Age, Year and Role☠

"I don't really get the school system and why there're grades and stuff, but oh well."

☠ Gender ☠

Image☠ Height & Weight ☠
He stands at a good 5'11, though he thinks THAT is short and he weighs 106lbs.[/size
[size=80]"I'm okay with my weight but..why do I have to be so short.."

☠ Hair color/Length/Quality ☠
A powdered pink, he did dye it though he just didn't like the mucky brown that he had before and decided to dye his hair a new and lighter color. It's just about halfway to his shoulder, though he always cuts it to make sure all of the strands of hair are kind of messy, he doesn't really like anything perfect.
"I just know people are going to make fun of it."

☠ Eye color ☠
Piercing Yellow, though people usually question whether or not that is his real eye color. Mostly because it's not very common to see people with yellow or gold eyes. But he seems to ignore it, as long as people don't make a rude or insulting remark about it.
"Yeah, it's my real eye color.."

☠ Distinguishable Facial Features ☠
He doesn't have anything on his face other than..well..the stuff that's suppose to be on his face.
"I don't have any, but that probably won't be fore too long.."

☠ Birthmarks/Scars/Tattoos/Piercings ☠
Tattoos|| He does have a tattoo across his chest that says "VY2", he honestly doesn't know why he got it or what it means but it's already there so..

Piercings|| He has three piercings in his left ear, one at the very top of his earlobe and it's not a loop just a simple piercing. Closer to the bottom is another exactly like the one at the top and right below that is a loop. All of them are black and green.

"I don't think I have anything other than a tattoo on my chest and the piercings in my left ear."

☠ Physical Description ☠
His clothing style is what most people would call weird, it's like this sort of futuristic style with just a little bit of modern day in it. He usually like to keep it just like that and hates when people judge him on his appearance, calling him a nerd and such. Though he would wear anything else if he really had to but he keep likes to keep his futuristic, modern style just because he thinks it really fits him. Haruki isn't very tall, or manly at all. He wants to become stronger and taller, but he loses enthusiasm once he figures out that he has to work for it.

Haruki stands at only 5'11, being an 18 year old, and has barely any muscle at all. Some people would ask him if he was strong, and he'd answer with a yes even though he can barely lift 30 pounds without trouble. Haruki's goal is to someday become three inches taller since he finds 5'11 short. By doing that, he usually drinks milk in hope that his wish will come true.

His hair is normal length, sometimes growing a little over that and covering his eyes, but he keeps an eye on it so that it wouldn't grow too far. Haruki's eyes are quite unique. Yellow eyes may be normal but, people argue about the color. Most times though, people would see his eyes as green instead of a very yellow, and just like usual, Oishi has no evidence to back up either side since he lost his birth certificate, and doesn't know himself. His gloves is what is found most... interesting...some people find it a little unusual, but Oishi grew quite fond of it since it was a gift from his father who passed.

"If only I could be a few inches taller.."

❝I can't take people seriously anymore, mostly because if you did end up taking it to heart you just end up hurting yourself❞

Image☠ Habits/Quirks ☠
Sleeping|| Haruki, out of all the things in the world, loves sleeping the most. If he was granted any wish in the whole entire world, at the moment, he'd probably waste it on having a lifetime of peaceful sleep. Haruki, as a child, worried his mother since he slept so much, for such a long time and his naps were over 3 hours long. Though, it turns out, Haruki had no problems, he was just one of those special children who needed a lot more sleep than a regular person. Haruki doesn't mind his sleep condition, in fact, he takes advantage of it sometimes by staying up late until he'd pass out and sleep in until noon or sometime around there. He usually takes naps throughout the day.
Food|| Haruki, just like many other people, is a lover of food. There is not a single dish or type of food that he doesn't like. He'll eat anything he's given, and sometimes, he'll eat more than a regular person, or even an average man would, yet Haruki won't get fat, or taller, or stronger. Haruki is able to eat the spiciest, sweetest, or sourest food. Even if the cooking is not very good, perhaps burnt or under cooked, he'll still take it.
Sweets|| Going with his love for food, he absolutely adores sweets! Whenever he was younger he used to eat whole cakes by himself.

☠ Likes ☠
Rain|| Just because it calms him and let him sort things out.
Art/Musical Arts|| He finds them both interesting and he's rather good at painting and playing the bass.
Winter|| Just for a simple fact, who wouldn't like winter? Beautiful snow and plus it's the holidays.
Violin|| Going with his love for Musical Arts, he finds the Violin the most beautiful instrument out of them all and its currently trying to learn it.
Snow|| Tying with his love for season of winter, snow makes almost everything look beautiful.
School|| He always loved learning new things, but ignorant kids always ruined it for him.
Weekends|| It's that one day that he actually gets to sleep in instead of getting up early for school.
Food|| Do I really need to say why?
Cooking|| He likes a food a lot, so why wouldn't he like cooking?
Video-games|| Haruki just started just playing at a young age and it became of habit of his to play whenever he had time.

☠ Dislikes ☠
Bitter/Sour Things|| Most people don't like these things, and neither does Haruki
Being Judged By His Appearance|| Nothing bugs him more than this, no one really knows how much it really bugs him though.
Most People|| Mainly because they're too ignorant to even see the obvious when it's hanging right in front of their faces, and he really hates the kids in High School because they always interrupted the teacher.
Summer|| It's really just too hot for Haruki, since he wears so many layers of clothing.
Being Woken Up|| He hates it especially, if it's during a good dream.
Yelling|| There really is no need to yell at people most of the time, especially if their right next to you

☠ Talents ☠
The King of Hide and Seek|| He can hide almost everywhere at anytime. Sometimes even in plain sight, especially if their's a crowed though his gloves kind of get in the way of that.
Sword Arts|| He's extremely talented with a sword, one of the many reasons he carries a sword around with him no matter where he goes, what he doing or whoever questions him he ALWAYS has it.
Infamous Liar|| He's very well known for being a really good liar and almost everyone in the school knows it and watches out just incase. Thing is, since he was GOOD at lying no one could really tell he was, if they could well..what would be the point of lying in the first place?
Multitasker|| Another one of his talents would be to easily multitask during his jobs and assignments.
Master Sleuth|| Tying in well with him being able to hide easily, he is extremely skilled in recon and investigating areas that he may or may not be allowed into.
Adept Lockpicker|| He could pick a lock with just about anything, he once used a sharpened candy cane, even though it broke often it ended up working.
Avid Gamer|| He'll play anything that gets thrown at him, even if it's just a regular FPS game.


☠ Flaws ☠
Slothful|| He loses enthusiasm once he figures out that he has to work for something, though this doesn't apply to his lifetime goals. He will stop at nothing until he has achieved them.
Impatient|| He hates waiting on anything, especially for people.
Callous|| Haruki doesn't really render his emotions clearly and it can be hard to understand what he's feeling from time to time.

☠ Fears ☠
Losing His Sister|| His sister, Nao, was in a car accident when his older brother was drunk driving again and is now in a comma. She has been like that for about two years. (Explained better in History)u

☠ Hobbies ☠
✔Drawing & Painting
✔Practicing Sword Arts
✔Collecting Comic Books
✔Drawing & Painting Mythological Gods
✔Collecting Seashells

☠ Secrets ☠
⌛ He was and still is in a gang. He doesn't interact much with them and he doesn't want to.

☠ Personality ☠
Haruki isn't the most ideal person to be around. As stated before he can be really hard to deal with at times and a lot of people find this really annoying about him, but if he actually knows you he can be quite open. I'm going to say this right now, you do not want to get on his bad side. He can, and will make your life a living hell and will not hesitate to show contempt for you. Now this is only if you get on his bad side, other than that, you're A-okay. Now there are exceptions to this, for example, if you're known for being arrogant and you don't try to hide it, you can easily get on his bad sides without even meeting him. Haruki isn't one to judge and make fun of people by their appearance, hes far above that. He hates it when people do that, and he wouldn't do it to anyone else because he knows how it feels to be judged, it happened to him the entirety of High School. People used to call him a nerd because his clothes were odd and looked futuristic and he would never hear the end of it.

Haruki does have a side of him that's a lot more talkative, but he only acts that way around people that he's close too and, as of now, he would only act like that around his sister or his mother.

"It would be a lot easier if you would find out for yourself."

❝It's still night time right?'s eight in the morning..I still got time to sleep then..❞

Image☠ Romantic Interest ☠
"I..honestly do not know.."

☠ Most Precious Person ☠
His sister that is still in a coma from two years ago.

☠ Family ☠
Amai Shinobu||Mother||58||Deceased
Yumi Shinobu||Stepmother||51||Alive
Izumi Shinobu||Father||65||Deceased
Nao Shinobu||Sister||19||Alive, in a coma
Takesh Shinobu||Brother||20||Alive, in prison

"I bet they hate me now.."

☠ History ☠
Haruki's real mother died giving birth to him, so he never really got to meet his real mother. He was rather close to his sister though, mostly because she was just one year older then him and she wasn't a complete asshole like his brother. Other than his mother's death, he lived an almost perfect child hood. He made good grades in school and his friends would often come over to play with him, the only real problem was his brother; Takeshi. He would get his friends to come over and mess with Haruki almost everyday and he soon had to stay in his room and lock the door to keep them from bothering them and even then they would bang on his door and harass him.

Haruki's dad formed a gang when he was 7, so that he could get 'easy money'. Even if Haruki was in a bad environment as a child, he grew up to be nothing like his father. He was kind and always put others before himself, but his Dad hated that. He wanted Haruki to be rough so that whenever he passed away, Haruki could take over the gang. His stepmother and his sister were against this but his brother was all for it, he liked the idea of being able to control people and have them do whatever he wanted. So it was decided that, instead of Haruki, Takeshi would end up leading the gang and Haruki would be second in command. Though Haruki didn't want anything to do with the gang, though honestly, he didn't want anything to do with his father. Ultimately, he was forced into the gang.

All he was suppose to do is recon and investigate stuff, and that came as a relief to Haruki since he wouldn't be getting into the fights or having to kill people. He did have to beat some people up and threaten them, but that was far different from actually picking up a weapon and killing them. Even though it was dangerous he still did it, and to his surprise, he was actually really good at it. He could easily blend into his surroundings, despite the flashy clothing that he still wears to this day. He grew to be distant and keep to himself, though he still did hang out with his sister every now and then. Until the car accident that is. Whenever his brother Takeshi was picking Nao up from work and it wasn't much of a surprise that he was drunk and Nao tried to get Takeshi to let her drive but Takeshi wouldn't let up. His stubbornness led to them getting in a car crash and Nao ended up in a coma. Haruki's hate for his brother only grew from that event and he never once looked at his brother again. At the end of the 10th grade he was enrolled into Evening Star Academy.

"It's best not to forget the past so you can't repeat it in the future."

{OOC: Forgot to say in my Character Sheet that I was in the special class :P}
The lights from the sun shone dimly through the blinds of the windows. Haruki slowly began to stir from his sleep, but not in a good mood at all. Staying up late at night preparing for the first day of school took a toll on his energy and, now he was feeling tired and restless just lying here in bed. Having trouble trying to adjust again, he slowly rose from his bed and walked to the bathroom, taking a firm hold the wall to keep his from falling on the way to there. When he finally got there after the unnecessary long walk, he took a look in the mirror.

His hair looked, well putting lightly, hideous. It was knotted up together and looked like a cat had clawed through it. He really isn't in the mood of combing, brushing through it, and cutting it so it fitted exactly what he wanted. All he did was a half-assed job of brushing through it to make it look the least bit appealing. After fixing his hair some what, he walked down the stairs to his house.

Haruki's Stepmother had already made him breakfast and left for work like always. He quickly finished his breakfast and started to head out of the door, but before that he took a glance at the clock sitting on the table right next to the door. Six O'nine the clock read.

Haruki frowned, he had gotten up much sooner than he wanted to and it was probably why he was feeling so tired. Since he's the type of person to sleep in and don't care if he was late to school or not, he usually didn't get up until Eight O'clock sharp. Silently cursing himself he opened his door and began to walk down the street towards the High-school. All he really wanted to do was go back inside the house, go up the stairs and jump on his bed and go back to sleep. But, he would dare miss the first day of school, there was always another day to miss school. Like missing a Friday of school, yeah, that would work, he would get to have a three day week-end.

Lost in his thought, he was suddenly interrupted by the sound of a cat meowing. It appeared right in front of him and he bent down to get a better look of it, with him being as tall as he is. It was scrawny and thin, but hell was it cute. Haruki always had a soft spot for cute things, and since it didn't have a collar on it he decided that he would take it home. So that's what he did obviously, and he left out food for him as well and then started back to school again. It was only a minor set back so it didn't matter much to him.

He was the first one into class like usual, even with his set back this morning. He merely just sat there and waited for class to start. Haruki waved to Alto as he walked into the class.

Akemi Fujioka walked into a classroom with her nose stuffed in a manga. She knew it was way too early to be at school, but the truth was she didn't really want to be at home. This was a normal thing for her especially when her mother would bring home a man for the night. She always knew it would end badly and so she didn't like to be around when it did. As a result, Akemi would be to school before anyone else a lot of the time and on occasions before any of the teachers even. The nice thing was she was on good terms with most of them so they'd let her sit in a classroom in peace to read, knowing she wouldn't cause trouble if she was alone. That wasn't quite the case today though. As she walked in and sat down she realized there was someone else in the classroom, though she didn't quite acknowledge them since she was so involved in what she read. Plus she already knew who it was, Haiku Shinobu. They didn't quite get along so it was better for her not to say anything to him. So there she sat, manga in hand and one ear bus in her ear playing music

After awhile people began to show up and come into the class, talking and slightly irritating her. She did her best to ignore all of them though and they generally stayed away from her, most being scared of her fearing to get punched for pudding her off. She wasn't a complete liner though, she did have a few "friends". Speak of the devil, the one person she was probably the closest to out of her friends came in. Alto Skyefield. He was as cheery as ever as he greeted everyone. "Good Lord, Alto how can one be so cheery so early in the morning?" She asked him while glancing up from her manga a little to look at him, a blank expression on her face. She didn't mean to sound so cold, but that was just how she operated. Thankfully Alto usually recognized that and never took it personally most of the time.

Setsuna woke up early. It was not because she was enthusiastic about going early at the first day of school but rather the occasional pain that strikes her legs had chosen to emerge at this specific hour. She took the pills at her bedside and drank one without much thought. Checking her clock, she saw that it was three more hours before class starts. Rather than going back to sleep, she figured she might as well head out early.

She had taken her bath and got dressed in her uniform with the assistance of her mother and sister. After breakfast, she boarded her car, her sister taking the wheel and driving her to the Academy.

Upon reaching the academy grounds, she read the handbook that was given to her on enrollment day, her mechanical fingers, scanning the pages. She searched for her classroom and saw that it was on the third floor; it was now 6:05 in the morning.

Now she was on the first floor, with no elevators in sight and one question boggling her mind:

"Now how am I going to get up there?"

Alto rubbed the back of his head sheepishly. "Ehehe... Well I guess I was excited to go, so..." He laughed, walking to his seat and setting down his things. He definitely wasn't lying when he said he was excited- His alarm was set at 5:00 in the morning, he just had a "little" attack so he passed out and woke up one hour later. Luckily, he made it before class started, even catching two of his friends in the classroom already.

He gave his things a quick review to see if he had missed anything. Of course, the things needed for his classes were there, notebook, ballpen, and other stuff. But in a compartment lay his sketchpad and trusty art set. It was a habit of his not to bring too many things, he knew that stressing his body out too much will cause him to pass out, but he would NEVER leave his sketchpad at home. That and his pet dog might find it and rip it up. His life would be over if that happened.

He relaxed when he found that nothing was missing. A few people came over to greet him, ask him some things, and other things, but they didn't last long since of course, people have their own groups.

"Haaa~ Oh hey, Akemi, what are you reading?"

The alarm of Azalea's phone rang her to the point of slipping out of her dreams, and promptly falling out of her bed, landing on a floor in the cocoon of her baby blue comforter. "Oww..." She mumbled a bit, wriggling herself out of the tightly enclose blanket around herself. Practically crawling over to her dresser, she reached up to grab her tiny cell phone, and shut off her alarm that went off every morning at 7:30. Standing up, she stretched her arms out, and squeaked a small "Oww!" once more, looking at the small bruised that had formed on her elbow. She had barley any more reaction time to it, as she heard her mother call to her "Hun? You okay? Did you fall out of bed again?" Aza blushed to herself, and called back in her regular sheepish tone, "Yeah, But I'm fine, please don't worry!"

Opening up her drawers, she took out her regular school clothes, and changed her pyjamas out for them. Racing into the bathroom, just avoiding hitting her shoulder in the door frame, she quickly brushed through her knotted vibrantly red hair. When she felt satisfied with its smoothness, she slipped into the kitchen area, grabbing an apple, and biting into it smalley. She continued to much on it for awhile, her odd amber eyes scanning around the familiar kitchen. When she finished her small morning breakfast down to its core, she through it out, and grabbed her black school messenger bag, ready to leave for the high school that she still felt rather unfamiliar with.

"Bye!" She called back to her mom, her dad already having left for work. As she closed her door behind her, and stepped onto the side walk, she could't help but smile being outdoors in the morning. It wasn't the same nature feel as when she lived in the country with grandma, but it was still trees, and fresh air in hich she often found herself craving when stuffed in doors.

Continuing down the cracked cement side walk, she felt calm for once, happy that she had only had one unfortunate clumsy act this morning. That really was, until she heard a loud bark and grumble from behind her. Glancing over with a surprised look in her wide eyes, she came face to face, well, face to face with a chain link fence between them, a snarly, drooling big ol' dog. Aza covered her mouth to keep a small squeak of fear escape her light pink lips, but as the dog barked and snarled again, she continued on running now to school. She ran and ran, being that big dogs was one of the two things she feared most, but her trip came to an abrupt stop as her shoe got caught on one of the cracks in the stone, and she stumbled down, falling on her knees. Looking down, it scrapped through her tights, and she noticed small blood welling up where she scrapped it. Huffing, she mumbled to herself. "And I was doing so well.." Before getting up, and partly limping the rest of the five minutes to the school.

Walking into the doors, she quickly made her way to her class room, and sat down, partly awkwardly avoiding ye contact with her classmates as she limped on through. Smoothing her pleated skirt down as she sat, she opened her bag and pulled out a band aid, placing it over the small cut that showed through her now ripped tights.

Haruki was occupying himself with a book while the other students in the classmates conversed among themselves. It was only then that he noticed his hair was uneven. Now he didn't take much care in making it perfect, but if there wasn't one then he couldn't stand is if his hair is uneven. "Such a bother..I should've payed more attention to it..". Sometimes he hated his own slothfulness in the mornings. Oh well, he'll find a way to get over it..hopefully.

Since class hadn't truly started yet, he decided that he was going to leave and go for a walk around campus. It was better then sitting in a classroom doing absolutely nothing beneficial to him. He put up his book in his backpack, and exited the classroom quickly without being questioned. No one paid much attention anyways, and he liked it that way.

Ari smiled at Azalea. "I'm fine. Really. But thank you." She turned and walked off. She saw Haruki and waved to him. He was the one person she had the utmost respect for. He didn't need anyone's approval but his own.

"As you wish." Andrew said, crossing his arms behind his back and following the girl out of the garden. After they went their separate ways Andrew began to climb the spiral stair case to the third floor. Once there the causal walked down the hallway to his home room and waved at everyone as he entered the room.

"Hello everyone. It's all very pleasing to see you all again." He said in his usual calm tone. Andrew moved to and empty seat and sat down, setting his school bag next to him and the desk. He leaned back in the chair and placed his hands behind his head. He let his head drop back and looked up at the ceiling. letting out a blissful sigh and closing his eyes. He was happy anywhere that wasn't where his mother was. School was more his home than anywhere else.
