Hikari is rather average, both in size and appearance. He stands at about 170 centimeters and is quite thin, with little muscle to note, and his overall build is rater weak. His hair is a glossy black that reflects light and is soft to the touch, framing his face with uncoordinated bangs. Oddly enough, Hikari's eyes are a startling emerald color due to his British heritage, and stand out in a crowd. They tend to stand out even more because of his pale skin and his flawless complexion is considered almost feminine by his parents. In fact, he has quite a feminine look to him.

On most occasions, Hikari dresses in a way that destroys the line between formal and casual. He tends to favor nice button up shirts and shorts to jeans and t-shirts, and has a rather large collection of ties, though the one commonality between every one of his outfits is a soft white scarf hand-knitted for him as a gift. Hikari never takes off this scarf and refuses to let anyone else touch it unless their hands have been washed recently. He rarely wears any type of jewelry. In terms of accessories, his scarf is an obvious constant, and he tends to be somewhat picky when it comes to shoes. He feels that shoes have to be comfortable in order for them to look good, since a person won't be able to view them as 'pretty' if the structure makes their feet hurt from walking in them all day long.

Hikari isn't one to take much interest in makeup, though he does enjoy painting his nails, usually black or different shades of green. The subtle color is often illuminated by his pale skin and becomes much more obvious than it would be on the nails of someone with darker skin. He doesn't consider nail polish to be a purely feminine product.

P E R S O N A L I T Y

' Most people assume that I'm a snob because I grew up surrounded by wealth. They assume I think I'm superior to them, that I see them as less than human, and it makes me feel like a broken record. There's not a single person who wishes to see me for who I really am inside. '

When a person takes even a moment to speak to Hikari, the first trait that shows itself is how simply polite he is. He always uses the correct honorifics with those he speaks to and isn't one to make assumptions about other people despite how many assumptions are made about him. Hikari is a gentleman and will always treat his peers with respect, even if they don't respect him in return. When someone near him is being insulted, Hikari is the type of person who would counter said insult with a clever pun and a smile, which sometimes makes him seem more naive than intended.

Hikari is a rather passive person and isn't one to engage in arguments or fights, instead speaking with words that drip with venom. His polite mannerisms forbid him from insulting anyone and he would never harm another person unless he absolutely needed to. Because of this he was an easy target for bullies as a child, though his family named stopped the bullying shortly after it began.

Over the years, Hikari's personality hasn't evolved much. Ever he was a child he was taught to remain kind and caring toward those around him, helping those who needed help, and making sure to keep those he cares for out of harm's way. He's always found himself to be rather independent and fun-loving, wanting adventure and searching for the meaning of his life. Hikari has never wanted to be the one to inherit his father's company and instead favors the idea of being able to travel the world, moving from place to place without any convictions to hold him back.

Hikari doesn't have much of a dark side, and he hasn't been in many situations where he would need one, though he can be quite intimidating if he tries hard enough. His unearthly green eyes make for a nice, piercing glare and he's very skilled at controlling his expressions, impressively so. Hikari doesn't enjoy these moments, however, and greatly dislikes arguments of any kind.

Hikari would make for a very loyal friend if someone took the time to speak to him. Because so many of his peers tend to avoid him, Hikari has stopped attempting to make peace with his classmates, instead keeping to himself and acting according to whatever situation comes his way.

B I O G R A P H Y

Place Of Birth: Kyoto, Japan
Current Residence: Tokyo, Japan
Current Occupation: Student

Hikari was born into wealth, into status and extravagance, and into a world of complications. His parents were kind and caring, teaching him not to worry about the things around him and to always be himself, meanwhile teaching him to be the perfect gentleman along the way. He grew up surrounded by servants, though he wasn't pampered by them as would be expected. His parents believed that he needed to be able to do things on his own in order to be good at anything, though he still wasn't allowed to strain his muscles too much or participate in activities that could be considered dangerous. Early childhood was pure bliss for Hikari, the only way of life he knew.

However, the moment he began school, that bliss seemed to fade. His father owned a multimillion dollar company that manufactured everything from electronics to clothing lines, and the Aizawa name was known by anyone who had lived in Japan longer than six months. At first, Hikari was bullied by his peers, endlessly teased and picked on for being 'superior'. The bullying didn't last long though, since the bullies quickly realized they wouldn't get anything but an innocent smile out of the boy. Ever since then Hikari has simply been ignored and avoided by the majority of his peers, his classmates constantly acting as if he wasn't even there. He doesn't seem to mind it.

When Hikari was thirteen, his parents had a deep conversation with him and his sister about who was going to inherit the company after they retired. Hikari had never wanted the responsibility and stress being the owner of a company would bring, and Akari gladly took over the role as successor to the Aizawa family name. She graduated Senior High a year later and went off to attend college in America, claiming that she needed to learn about the rest of the world first if she was to inherit the entirety of the Aizawa family's goods. She's only sent letters to remind them of her existence.

Hikari had been at a crossroad when the time came to choose what college he wanted to attend. Relatives wanted him to attend only the best college in Japan, in order for him to be prepared to take over the family name should Akari fail, meanwhile his parents encouraged him to go where he himself felt led. In the end he decided on Tokyo University, leaving many of his relatives to speculate about how his parents had raised him. Hikari's parents fully supported this choice.

Graduating Senior High was a victory in Hikari's eyes. He felt as if a huge step of his life had been taken, and he wanted to see where it would end. Shortly after he graduated, he moved away from home to live in the dormitories at Tokyo University. His sister and parents both send him weekly letter, Akari from where she's staying in America and his parents from the main house in Kyoto. Hikari treasures every single letter he receives and keeps them in the drawer of his desk, hidden safely away from prying eyes that he knows don't exist, though he fears them despite this.

Kazuo and Takumi were eating their meals together, chatting about how their morning has been seperated away from each other. Takumi's majors are computer technology and science study, and it seemed that they turned out to be quite fun for him too. He had thought them to be quite boring, based on what his senpais told him when he's still at High School, but at least he wouldn't be bored to death now. Besides, it's much easier to take a nap here and there during a lecture now, something he personally found to be satisfying.

The whole cafeteria was filled with chatters and conversations though and they weren't the only newbies around. Fortunately, Kazuo didn't stand out very much in comparison with when he's still in High School, except for a few bickers here and there about how he and Takumi were walking and talking with Hikari earlier that day, but he can rest assure a bit that his college life can be a smooth sail from now.

"Hey, guys. Mind if I join you?" Miki spoke up and joined them as he sat down at the table they were sitting and they happily accepted. It was now that Kazuo realized some girls were squealing and expressing their admiration for the guy, thus gaining more attention towards their table. "Looks like you're just as new, but you've already become quite a hot issue, huh?" Kazuo asked with a grin.

"Well, it's not like I really care much about it though. If someone was to be hot issues, I believe you two are more likely to be. You seemed to be just the guys that girls around here would fawn over for." Miki scratched the back of his head and smiled, "So how was your first morning in college?"

And so, the three of them chatted away until lunch break was over. Well, it's no surprise that they can converse as if they've been friends for long, taking into account of how sociable they all were. However, what really takes both Kazuo and Takumi aback was when Miki suddenly confessed about the reason why he and Hikari had been acting weird earlier that day, and how he felt about him. Both of them didn't know how what to say, but Miki seemed genuine about what he said, so Kazuo told him to hang in there, and things will surely get better. Miki had also told them to keep it a secret, as he still need time to "sort his feeling out." Of course, Kazuo and Takumi happily accepted.

The afternoon lessons went on peacefully, though Kazuo didn't come across with his roommate, so he secretly wondered about him often. After seeing how people treated Hikari, it's natural for him to be worrisome. But he tells himself not to concern over it too much. Sometimes, the frailest can actually be the toughest. After the lessons, Kazuo stopped by the Swim Club, as the president had requested the freshly joined to attend a meeting of sorts to introduce themselves. And, dressing in swimsuit is also required.

Takumi had already made his way to the Basketball Club and Miki had gone to Parkour Club, respectively, so he's on his own way to the Swim Club's dressing room. There were about 14 guys there, all of them are freshmen like him, though he didn't know anyone of them. From what he observed, half of them are just as ripped as him, while the rest are, well, a little slender. Well, it isn't like he was being arrogant or something, but he's quite confident in his swimming skills. He made it to the top 4 in the national in his second year back in High School, after all. There could be some real monsters here though, I could never know.

When all the freshmen gathered at the pool, a young man with blonde hair walked out from the club's room. Standing in front of all of them, he cleared his throat before introducing himself. "Welcome everyone to the Swim Club of Tokyo Uni. As everyone might have already known, I'm Tsubasa Shiraishi - the president of this humble club. Or the so-called "second final boss" as Yukimizu-sensei usually stated me." He said in a joking manner that made everyone chuckled, Kazuo included, "The activities around our club will mostly be hosted by me, though sensei will also attend whenever he's free."

As Tsubasa swept a gaze through everyone, he continued, "It seemed that the amount of people applying for our club is a bit shorter in comparison to the previous years, but I can see that there are some real talents joining us..." He cast his gaze upon Kazuo and a couple of others, "...while some are apparently new to this sport. But anyhow, I'm looking forward to work with you all. Let's have a lot of fun together, shall we? Now, it's time for you to introduce yourself and what you're capable of."

And so, the freshmen took their turn to introduce themselves. When it was Kazuo's turn to introduce himself, he realized that some of the guys seemed to know him. Tsubasa even stated that he knows of Kazuo's records and his nickname "black marlin of Sapporo." However, he just humbly addressed that he still had a lot to learn and hoped to get along well with everyone.

For another hour, Kazuo had had fun practicing with his new friends. He had learnt a lot and taught a lot for the newbies too. It's natural for him to get along with people, after all. Not all of them were really fond of him, but participating in club activities had always been a pleasure for him, so he only hopes that it will go well like this until graduation.

When the president called it a day, Kazuo packed up and made his way home. Both Takumi and Miki hadn't finished with theirs yet, and Hikari apparently still have a couple of lectures, so he's alone for now. It's not that late, after all. So after making it back to the apartment, he just took a shower before sitting down by the kotatsu table to read the weekly magazine he's just bought on his way home. A while later, Hikari returned and he greeted him as they joined at the dining table.

While they were conversing, Kazuo was again taken aback as the topic about the relationship between Hikari and Miki was brought up. He honestly doesn't know how to feel about it all, since he had never really been in love before. But in some way, he sympathizes for both of them. He was thinking of telling Hikari of how Miki feels toward him, but he's not the one to go back on his promise.

"Well, it's not like I was curious about it or anything because both me and Taku know that it seemed to be a rather... personal topic. But I'm sure that everything will turn out alright." Kazuo replied to Hikari with a smile, "And, I'm glad you're okay too. I know things will get a bit awkward, but I'm always here to lend a helping hand if you need."

After dinner, they chatted for a while about what has happened during the day before decided to settle down for the night. As Kazuo said goodnight to Hikari, he flopped down on his futon and exhaled a breath that his first day at college had passed, with a lot of things happened. He surfed through Twitter with his phone for a while, chuckling at a selfie his dad had just uploaded, with him holding a young boy and a beautiful middle-aged woman, each on his sides. Indecent old man...

Just like that, the day quietly passed by.

The first thing Hikari thinks about when he wakes up again is how he's absolutely determined not to throw up. There's a stubborn part of him that hates to waste the probably-expensive wine Akari sent him, and he doesn't want to deal with the pain and discomfort of vomiting, much less having Kazuo see (and smell) him in such a state. So the first thing Hikari does is force down the bile rising in his throat, taking deep breaths when it makes his chest ache a bit. He all but lunges for the water bottle he keeps near his futon, drinking all of its contents, hoping it will keep him from needing to vomit up the alcohol from the night before. The water alleviates some of the ache in his chest and Hikari sighs, flopping back onto his pillow and rolling over the quarter of a meter to pull his curtains open a little. XX
He hears voices in other parts of the apartment, and Hikari easily recognizes Kazuo and Miki. Why Miki is there, he doesn't know- not that it matters. Miki is his friend- a fact which makes Hikari smile to himself. He briefly wonders if eavesdropping would be a crime, but the voices are too low and distant for him to make out what they're saying, so even if it was a crime, he'd bee innocent. Hikari stands quietly and goes about gathering new clothes. He knows he needs to shower, his clothes and hair stick to his skin with sweat, but he doesn't want to interrupt whatever conversation Kazuo and Miki are having outside, so he puts his clean clothes aside and busies himself checking his text messages and emails. He faintly hears the front door open and close, and then Kazuo is inquiring after him. XX
"Hikari-san, have you awoken yet?" He hears Kazuo say through the door. "Yes, I am awake." He replies, standing to open the door for his roommate. He ignores the way the rush of blood to his head makes him have to lean on the wall for a moment. "I am not feeling my best, but not especially terrible either. I am sure I will be fine after a shower and a day of rest." It suddenly occurs to Hikari that he now has to face the events of the night before. He remembers them; he definitely remembers them. He's grateful he never forgot anything in his drunken stupor, he'd hate to have forced Kazuo to explain it. Perhaps he would have pretended it didn't happen at all. XX
Hikari thanks Kazuo for having made him porridge (he smiles at his roommates courteousness; it warms his heart to think that perhaps this could be normal for them) and eats half the bowl before he pauses, looking to Kazuo and back to his bowl. "I would like to offer an apology for what happened last night." He says. "Not because I regret what happened, or because I did not mean any of it, of course. I would like to apologize for not having asked permission first. It was rude of me to kiss you unprompted, and to assume you would be alright with it." He takes another few bites, mulling over his words. He doesn't want to slip up and say the wrong thing. "However, I did not kiss you simply because I was drunk, though it was a great part of why. I am afraid I may have fallen for your kindness, Kazuo-san." XX
Hikari stops speaking then, a small smile on his face, and turns back to his porridge. He finishes what is left without another word. He studies Kazuo's expression from the corner of his eye and can't help but smile wider at how truly contemplative he seems. He says nothing more as he sets the bowl aside and turns to face Kazuo fully. "Please, do not feel pressured to answer now. Take your time." XX
