Imageβ™” Shiori Maki β™”:

β™” Nicknames/Titles β™”: Big brother | That guy in the coat | "Mom" (usually ironic)

β™” Age β™”: 18

β™” Gender β™”: Despite his feminine traits and appearance, Shiori is male

β™” Romantic Interest β™”: He hasn't really thought of himself as having a romantic connection to anyone before, as he's usually preoccupied with other things

β™” Sexuality β™”: Heterosexual

β™” Nationality β™”: 75% Japanese 25% Mixed European

β™” Face Claim β™”: Garry | Ib





Imageβ™” Physical Description/Clothing Preference β™”: Shiori is a moderately tall, slim young man, with long slender limbs that just barely avoid seeming disproportionate. His plumb-colored hair is a bit long for a man's, particularly his bangs, and there are a few unkempt darker strands originating at the top of his head that he can't seem to do anything about. Other than that however, his hair seems fairly well kept, if somewhat tousled. His eyes are an average shade of purple, which probably shouldn't be thought about too hard, and his skin is a bit pale from a great deal of time spent indoors. His voice is normally soft and calm, though it can go up by several octaves when he's frightened.

As far as clothing goes, Shiori always appears to be in the same outfit, consisting of a plain tan pair of slacks, held up by a belt, a slightly loose green shirt, and a vaguely flamboyant coat, complete with deliberate tears and even a faux fur collar. He never seems to wear anything else, save for occasions that demand otherwise, yet his attire is always clean, so he either washes the clothing very frequently, or he just has a lot of them. Despite the flashiness of his usual attire, primarily the coat, anything else he wears tends to be rather plain and nondescript.

β™” Birthmark/Piercing/Tattoo/Scar/Noticeable Features β™”: There are very few of his features that have not yet been described that could be considered noticeable. His skin is unblemished, and he has no tattoos, scars or piercings.

β™” Personality β™”: Shiori has a tendency to look after others, becoming something of a parental/elder sibling figure very quickly when placed in a group such as the one he now finds himself in. This is result of force of habit, from all of the time taking care of his younger siblings, his concern for and interest in others, and his natural maturity. Indeed, he seems to have great difficulty refusing any requests from them. His usual bearing is both warm and polite, if a bit awkward at times, he's good at listening, and is generally just pleasant to be around.

Shiori does however, have difficulty letting other people's problems go once he's been made aware of them, and will do just about anything he can to resolve the issue. He will back down if specifically requested to, but he'll still continue his efforts as much as he can from behind the scenes; Shiori's concern for the other members of the household does occasionally win out over his respect for their wishes. The majority of his time in the house is either spent studying, usually in some pubic part of the house, or helping one of the other residents with something or another. As far as anyone can tell, he rarely ever goes into his room, and doesn't seem to sleep much at all, if that's any indicator.





Imageβ™” Likes β™”:
  • Roses
  • Cats
  • Art
  • Family, both his real one back home, and the odd group he's found himself a part of here
  • Continuing to play his role

β™” Dislikes β™”:
  • Not knowing something
  • Needless unkindness
  • Rudeness or meanness directed at his family or his "family"

β™” Talents β™”:
  • Understanding people
  • Patient (an asset in both this and his previous home)
  • Fairly good at cooking, though there are certainly better

β™” Flaws β™”:
  • About as athletic as he looks
  • Squeamish
  • Easily frightened by supernatural things, such as scary movies or ghost stories
  • Occasionally overbearing

β™” Fearsβ™”:
  • Ghosts
  • Urban legends
  • Loosing someone important

β™”Secrets β™”: Shiori is actually pretty much an open book. He's normally willing to tell others whatever they want to know. An exception to this is that he refuses to give out other people's secrets.





Imageβ™”Bio β™”: Shiori's life up till now has not been especially remarkable. He was born as the eldest child out of a family of six. Seeing as his parents were both very busy with their work, trying to make ends meet, Shiori was entrusted from a young age with the task of looking after his younger siblings. This has, in no small part, shaped his current personality. Thankfully, by the time he was old enough to go off to college, his sister, only a year younger than himself, would probably be alright taking on the task of looking after the other two in his absence.

He is currently studying art at the university, in hopes of eventually being able to teach it himself. While he does this, he has taken up residence at The Hanekawa household, since the university in question is in a different town from his home.

Chiyo was wide awake in the morning as always. Perhaps it was her duty to wake up that early as the landlady of such a giant house that was so vast and had so many people already living in it. Not saying she didn't like the company, but it was a little overwhelming at certain points, "Ah well..." She muttered to herself.

She had already been setting up breakfast for the many members of the household on the second floor of the house. No one had seemed to be up at 7:00 in the morning on that warm Saturday morning, and despite how 'early' it really was, Chiyo thought it was insane for so many people to sleep in for so long, "Wake up!" She called up to those who were still sleeping up stairs, "Time for breakfast!" She shouted.

There was the sound of a bicycle outside the house. She turned off the stove after making the plate of fish, eggs, and rice, and ran outside to see a newspaper on the doorstep. Chiyo, unlike most people, actually found some newspapers a bit interesting and often read them in some of her spare time, but instead of reading it thoroughly, she put it on the countertop and went straight to the laundry. A landlady of such a huge house did have a lot of things to do after all.

"Up!" She told those on the second floor again, "The food's going to get cold!" She called and proceeded to hanging the wet laundry outside on the lines she had already set up in advanced the day before. Chiyo was just lucky the heavy winds didn't knock it off. One of the windows on the second floor, though she didn't exactly know who's, was open and so she said from outside, "I'll be going up there myself if no one gets down in 60 seconds exactly."

Chiyo wasn't someone to joke about things like that, and literally began to count in her head, '59.....58....' If they didn't make it down by then, or at least one person... well... that was always left a mystery since she always chose different punishments for waking up late; one day it'd be no lunch, other days it'd be doing the laundry for her, and sometimes it'd be to go get some groceries for her instead. It was only on lucky days that she let them slip by.

"Don't you dare show your faces to me again, assholes!" Mako yelled at a group of teenagers, older than her, who immediately ran away with bruises on their faces and arms. Mako was someone to fear, but also someone to look up to, in some way, "Hey, you alright, kid?" She asked, turning around and facing a little boy quite a bit younger than her.

"Fine..." He mumbled and began to walk away, a huge bruise on his cheek that he rubbed.

"Whoa, whoa, whoa, hold on." Mako grabbed his wrist and held steady ground so he couldn't run away. Even if she tried, its not as if she couldn't out run a 10 year old kid, "Where's your parents? You're up way too early in the morning to be walking around the neighborhood alone."

"Shut up!" The kid lashed out, "It's already 7:00, idiot!" He said. It almost looked like he was going to cry.

Mako let go of his wrist, though he didn't run away and sighed, running her hand through her black hair with the lovely red dyed strips, "I never remembered kids to be so frustrating..." She muttered, "Well, whether you like it or not, I'm taking you back home. What's your adress, huh? You owe me at least that for saving your ass back there."

The kid scoffed, but in a way as if he was beaten and finally gave in. It took her nearly half an hour to get to the kids house, especially since she had to carry him all the way there since he injured his ankle. His mom took him and nearly lectured him in front of Mako. Nevertheless, she was thanked, even though she was quite embarrassed about it herself, and was excused. Mako didn't need any more than that, and went off back onto her way to the house, "Wonder if the landlady's gonna lecture me again..." She thought aloud as she headed back.

Shiori Maki






Shiori wasn't in the house at the moment either, and he certainly wasn't in his room. He hadn't been in his room for... two days, was it? Anyway, where he was was on the way home from the local library, where he had been to check out a few books on Photorealism for his class, which admittedly there hadn't been much of, but he'd picked up the two books they'd had.

He may have also glanced through the newspaper records while he was there, just checking for anything important. He hadn't found anything new though.

As Shiori began opening the front door, he heard the landlady up the stairs. "I'll be going up there myself if no one gets down in 60 seconds exactly." Setting his books down on an endtable and making sure to close the door, he made his way to the kitchen, where he assumed he'd find Chiyo. As luck would have it, he poked his head around the doorway just as the sixty seconds expired. "Anything I can help you with, miss?

Saiya whined as she heard Chiyo's voice ring into her room. She threw her covers over her head with a huff. She'd stayed up all night reading, and now she was utterly tired. I don't even eat breakfast.. She thought to herself bitterly, but her stomach growled in protest.

Oh shut up you.. always growling and trying to make me the size of a luxury cruise ship.. She got up, deciding not to challenge Chiyo so early. I guess I can at least get up and grab a cup of coffee before she storms in here.. She settled in her mind, grabbing her hoodie and throwing over her tank top. She ran her fingers over the comfy material before slinging her door open and trudging downstairs shortly after the woman's countdown ceased. What does she think we are? Five year olds? We aren't afraid of what comes after three..

"Yeah, yeah.. I'm up.." she rolled her eyes, sitting down at the table rubbing her eyes as she mumbled incoherent words to herself. Half lucky no one could make out what she was really saying. It more than likely consisted of several unheard profanities. Her brown eyes scanned the room, frowning to herself. Great, I'm the only one up with the shrink (Shiori) and the charity woman (Chiyo).. Yippee.. She thought sarcastically, "Did anyone start the coffee?? Or should I?" She finally asked, rolling her eyes and throwing her hands up in the air to accompany her bad morning attitude. Saiya was quite a handful without her caffeine in the morning. It is way too early for these pointless shenanigans.. Where do they get their cheerful good moods from??

The sun slowly rose up from the horizon. The ray shone onto everything, taking its chances in the holes made by nature. Shadows slowly form at every turn, creating a beautiful image of sunrise. Small critters awake from their slumber, enjoying at the sight of Mother Nature's beauty. Facing the sun is a big mansion. A mansion where a great family of Samurais once lived.

Behind the mansion is a small little lawn, where some of the many miracles of Mother Nature resides. In that lawn, a boy declared his favorite place out of the entire mansion. "Oh, found you." Yuki stared at the sight of a beautiful purple butterfly resting on one of the leaves of a small flower. Without knowing, Yuki can spend his entire day, looking at the little creature. But, as every insects is busy with their own lives, the small butterfly flapped its wings and flew, further and further away from the mansion. "See ya." He mumbled softly, knowing well that he could had disturbed the residences of the mansion if he spoke out loud.

Yes, in this big mansion, there lived quite a few amount of people. The landlady, Chiyo Hanekawa, rightful owner of this building and also a childhood friend of Yuki. They had been friends for as long as he could remember, and in his every memory, he can always see Chiyo with him. He was missing a few pieces of his memories somewhere along his life, but he didn't cared. "It's not like it'll be important since I forget them so easily." Yet again he mumbled, talking to himself.

Yuki had lost track of time, but he had only realized that it was already 7 in the morning. Chiyo was already calling for the others to wake and have their breakfast. He started walking around the lawn and found the girl doing the laundry. "I'll be going up there myself if no one gets down in 60 seconds exactly." Said the girl while putting up wet clothes on the lines. He decided to announce his presence, but then came Shiori Maki, the matured college tutor who happened to live in this house as well.

"Anything I can help you with, miss?" Yuki heard the boy said, as politely as he could. Sometimes Yuki wonders why is the boy so young and slender. The first time he met him, he even thought he was a girl! Yuki decided to interrupt the conversation. "I doubt she needs it. She'll probably get those who woke up late to do her chores. Like usual," He said, sarcastically. "Yo." He said, raising his hand.
