GENERAL APPEARANCE
Hikari is rather average, both in size and appearance. He stands at 184 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, there is 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. Hikari isn't one to take much interest in makeup, though he does enjoy painting his nails, commonly black or green. XX

PERSONALITY TYPE
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 always respect him in return. He just doesn't care about it being reciprocated. XX
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 it is absolutely necessary. XXX
Because of this he was an easy target for bullies as a child, though his family name 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, and without anyone he needs to answer to. XXX
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 he greatly dislikes any arguments or conflict. 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 only according to what comes his way. He doesn't butt into other people's business, and he makes it a point not to eavesdrop on other people's conversations, as he wouldn't want people eavesdropping on him. XX

ImageImage
LOVE
RAINY WEATHER ; Rain is calming, cleansing, and something Hikari has always enjoyed ever since he was small. He especially loves rainstorms, with lightning and thunder to accentuate the intense rainfall. MUSIC ; As an adolescent, Hikari fell in love with classical music, and his mother eagerly took the time to teach him how to play the piano. He learned quickly and to this day is quite skilled with the instrument. PHOTOGRAPHY ; You can name anything worth remembering, and Hikari probably has a photograph of it in his collection. Taking pictures is his favorite pastime, and he's never without a camera on his person. TEA ; Hikari's mother is British, and her love of tea transferred over to her children, especially since their father is already in love with Japanese tea. Hikari and his sister often send each other different teas. XXX
HATE
TITLES ; Hikari's surname and status have always loomed over him, driving away potential friends and making others fake their personalities to get closer to him. He finds superiority incredibly discomforting. DENSE CROWDS ; Due to asthma and a certain amount of anxiety about tight spaces, Hikari prefers to avoid terribly dense crowds of people as often as possible, if only to keep from having a breakdown. ARGUMENTS ; Hikari is the kind of person who would much rather walk away or pacify a fight than risk a friendship - or risk getting injured. However, he isn't one to avoid confronting others when need be. SPORTS ; Whether it be soccer or basketball or any other game, Hikari simply isn't good at it, and he'll actively avoid having to prove that fact. He dislikes sports and the competitiveness of the whole ordeal. XX


✘ ✘ ✘ And think of who knows my name...xImage


Image
STRENGTHS
MATHEMATICS ; Hikari has a love for numbers that makes the subject easy for him. He finds it comforting that every question has only one specific answer he needs to find. WRITING ; As a journalist and observer, Hikari writes out the things he sees in his daily life, keeping track of anything and everything that interests him throughout his days. GOOD MANNERS ; Of course, etiquette classes were a must-have in childhood, and the manners and customs learned then have stuck with him even over ten years later. INSTRUMENTS ; Hikari can pick up a new instrument relatively quickly if he puts effort into it. He has mastered the piano, violin, cello, and guitar, though he prefers the piano. XX
WEAKNESSES
TECHNOLOGY ; He has little, if any, interest in modern technologies like computers. He has a cell phone, but he prefers his record player, 19th century radio, and typewriter. FRIENDS ; Hikari has always found it difficult to make friends, not because of social skills, but because of the prejudice others have always had towards his upbringing. SELF-ESTEEM ; While not necessarily self-conscious, Hikari is the kind of person who blames himself when bad things happen to those he loves, despite what's really true. STIMULI ; If Hikari is over-stimulated, whether by an abundance of noise or tension, he will sometimes devolve into anxiety attacks or even asthma attacks from the stress. XX
FEARS
TIGHT SPACES ; Whether it be a too-tiny restroom stall or a dense crowd of people, Hikari has terribly bad claustrophobia, and if bad enough, it can trigger anxiety attacks. DYING ALONE ; Despite how calm Hikari appears about the fact that few want to be his friend, he's actually quite scared of dying without having anyone to be by his side. XX

__F A M I L Y


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 Osawa 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 pretends he doesn't notice 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 Osawa 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 Osawa 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 and sister fully supported him. Graduating Senior High was a victory in Hikari's eyes. Shortly after he graduated, he moved away from home to live in the dormitories at Tokyo University. His parents and sister, Akari, both send him weekly letters. XX

Hikari watches Kazuo leave without a word, and when the gentle giant is no longer in sight, the easy, polite, hopeful smile slides off his face. Hikari stares at the cracked-open door and sighs deeply. He wasn't rejected- not outright. But the stiffening of Kazuo's shoulders, the tightened fingers around Hikari's empty bowl, the blatant signs of blatant discomfort...those were enough to go on. And although Kazuo had every right not to return his affections, there was a still a weight settling in his stomach as the realization became fully solid. XX
Standing from his futon and gathering up his clothes, Hikari headed toward the bathroom, taking his time in the shower under water so hot his skin is pink when he steps out. He spends a good long moment staring at his blurred reflection in the fogged-over mirror; he definitely looks the part of having passed out late at night drunk. There are grey bags under his eyes and his eyes themselves seem distant, but Hikari goes about drying off and dressing before his brain can pull up the question of "why". Kazuo is in his room when Hikari comes out of the bathroom, bowl clean and drying on the counter, and Hikari smiles at the simple consideration in everything. XX
Hikari returns to his room and tosses his dirty clothes in his laundry basket. Despite Kazuo's suggestion, however, he doesn't actually go back to sleep. Instead, he picks up his camera and walks back to the bathroom. The mirror is still foggy and Hikari snaps a photo of his vague reflection, pleased with the outcome. He takes another photo of the blooming peace plant in the corner of the sitting room, and another of the row of succulents on the bookshelf by his bedroom door. They're all mundane photos, but beautiful nonetheless. XX
Out of the corner of his eye, Hikari registers that Kazuo's door is not quite closed all the way, and he tiptoes over to catch Kazuo sitting with his back to the door, headphones on, absorbed in a book Hikari doesn't recognize. He lifts his camera and snaps a picture of him, looking so peaceful and content. He barely has time to wonder if it's right to take photos of someone without permission before he's walking back to his own room, hanging the photographs up and putting his camera away before taking Kazuo's advice and getting rest. XX
When he wakes up again, it's already dark, and Hikari can hear rain pouring down outside. He hasn't even sat up yet when his phone goes off, and he brings it to his ear without bothering to check the Caller ID. It's Akari. "We found out how the news about the baby got out. It was obaa-san. I can't really say I'm surprised, but you should have seen tou-san's reaction! I don't think I've ever seen him so angry." She says. "Anyways, are you feeling any better? No chaos happen today?" Hikari lets out a hollow laugh. "Well, I cannot say there was no chaos. I got your package in the mail last night, and let's just say I've learned I can not hold alcohol very well." XXX
"Oh boy, this sounds like a story worth hearing. What happened?" "I kissed Kazuo-san. And I was drunk, but not drunk enough to have done it without meaning to. This morning I told him why, and...I'm pretty sure I've been rejected." "Oh, Michan...are you sure he rejected you? Did he say it aloud?" "No, I think he's too polite for that. But his body language said it all. He was very uncomfortable." "I see.." Akari paused, comtemplative. "Well, get some rest. Call me again tomorrow?" "I will, I promise. Good night, nee-san." "Bye." XX
Hikari hangs up the phone and sighs, tossing it gently onto his blankets and watching droplets slide down the window, blurring the city lights and stars he wouldn't be able to see anyways. Not wanting to get out of bed, Hikari pulls his covers close and goes back to sleep. XX
