ImageSkills
Deceiving || As any skilled thief should be, Haru is very capable of lying and deceiving in order to have things go his way. He mixes some truth with some lies to invent scenarios that could have easily happened yet, in reality, did not.

Stealth || Generally used when stealing, Haru's ability to lower his own presence is quite commendable, but is also used to jokingly scare his peers. As a skilled thief, he knows that the shadows can be your friends.

Persuasion || Haru is adept at persuading others. Whether it be smooth-talking someone into giving him free stuff or convincing someone that they have a secret admirer, he knows all the right words.

ImageWeaknesses
Sweets || Although previously a thief, Haru can be easily bribed with any type of candy. Due to his large liking of sweets, he will do almost anything to get his hands on some, especially if he doesn't have to pay for them.

Gambling || Enjoying the thrill of living on the edge, Haru has made gambling a habit. He cannot turn down a bet or challenge, granted that a prize is involved. He'll participate in anything be it cards, fights, even beauty pageants. If there's a prize involved, expect him to be there.

ImageHabits
• Stealing things that are simply left unattended, regardless of need
• Tossing wrappers and garbage from sweets on the ground
• Telling a lie even when it is unnecessary

Likes
♥ Any type of candy
♥ Making bets and gambles
♥ Teasing others
♥ Running
♥ Free stuff

Dislikes
x People who don't keep their side of the bet
x Having to buy things
x Hard work
x People who ask too many questions
x Other thieves

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Image
ImageDeceiving || Persuasive || || Loyal || Moralistic

Despite being a criminal, Haru has a surprisingly simple mindset. If it's something he wants, he will do whatever it takes to get it; under reason of course. If he wants something from someone, he'll either lift it off their hands or convince them to give it to him. As a person, or rather the ghost of a person, who was an experienced deceiver, he knows all the right words and the appropriate times; at least, he likes to think he does. He's often known for being a tease and for leaving people penniless. However, those who know him well know that a simple piece of candy will easily make you his ally and save you from any potential thefts, for a while at least.

Haru is your generally cheerful character with the teasing and optimistic attitude. However, he has his moments where he'll spring up some deep words and receive skeptical stares from people who know him. However, if he is on a sugar withdrawal, you may not want to be around him. Cranky Haru is not your friend, unless you give him candy. Haru is also a sucker for gambling. Challenge him to anything, and he'll readily agree to it as long as there is a prize involved. He wants participated in a girls' beauty pageant all for the sake of winning some movie tickets. Even if he knows for sure that he will lose the challenge, he will still accept and give his all. However, he takes bets really seriously and will, ironically enough, punish an opponent who is found cheating.

ImageContrary to common belief, a criminal such as Haru still has morals. He can distinguish between rights and wrongs, but old habits are harder to kill. He will instinctively take items that are left unattended regardless of need. However, if it's something small or something important to someone he knows personally, he will return it; without letting them know it was him of course. If someone he knows is in trouble, he will stand up for that person.

Even now, as he participates in this game, he believes it to be yet another form of stealing. However, instead of stealing an item, you are stealing someone else's body. Believing that taking someones body and obliterating their soul is also an act of murder, Haru's morals immediately force him to question the ethics of this game. However, still wanting a second shot at life, he decides to forget that for the time being and focus on the task at hand.

Spehn was Takagi Anohana. The infirmary teacher. It was quite the pain in the ass to manipulate the memories of all in the school but he finally accomplished the job. With that, the most troublesome part was done, he supposed. Not to mention he met that Earth Demon that settled him down. In particular very relieved because she did not show any intentions -- at least for now -- to mess with his targets. Instead she showed an amusement. That however, was not to Spehn or I am sorry; Takagi's worry. The very fact she seemed trustworthy enough was acceptable. That did not meant he completely trust her however.

She'll be within his observation for sure.

"They're in your care." He told her back then with a gentle smile before the classroom teacher took them with her, off to the classroom where they'll be introduced as transfer students. All with a background they thought of themselves, of course. He did say they should prepare themselves for questions, but he wondered whether they pull it off right and won't get regarded suspiciously on the first day of school. He shrugged the thought off however, uncaring about it. They'll somehow succeed, it's their game after all.

He stepped in the opposite direction to the infirmary. He had done his work, pretty much. Told them the names along with the background information of every target of the Ghost. Check. Said that he was in the infirmary for any questions and concerns. Check. Advised them to not leave the school ground as it is an effort-wasting action to do. Check. Warn them from common ghosts appearing from no where at times. There, he wondered. Had he told them that? Takagi was unsure. Didn't really was an important thing to know though, as they were harmless. At least the most. Hopefully they just don't get too surprised by the sight of it, as normal humans won't see them in day time. Well whatever. Takagi leaned back but not before opening the window widely to allow the comfortable breeze inside.

The Resurrection Game may begin.

Alright. Alright alright alright. He slapped both of his cheeks back then, both were still somewhat red from it even. He had to get it together. His name now is Hinata Uranai. Hinata Uranai.... yes yes. That is easily done. Hinata Uranai. He chose the name because one could choose. Surely he chose one he could easily remember, therefore the name of his wife, however it was still a bit odd. The thing he won't accept is when others start to call him with -chan at the end of the name. He shuddered from the thought. Oh my god- no. He was a guy, he was a guy but--! Now he had to settle down with him being a female. Female. Therefore his charms will only work on... fuck. Irumasa knew. He'll be the one coupling people up and no the one seducing people. There was no way that he pull off flirting like a woman. Fuck no, that would be the end of him; the end of the man on him which almost vanished within him. Or so it felt like after he had to live as a woman since few days ago. And yes, he has seen everything and no one could count how many times he kneeled down apologizing.

Well other than him and the demon, no one knew he was a guy originally. Heck, who would want to tell that? They'd laugh their butt off! No one was as unfortunate as him in such things, honestly he felt betrayed. Although he knew since long that his luck was miserable, but this was just too much. That is why his target is of course, the delinquent like kid and the athlete. Both are taller and better trained than him; it was so wonderful. Of course he felt uncomfortable with the thought of pretty much killing the original owner of the body he'll take. Who did not? However, there were no hesitations. He was positive he'll pull it off. Yes, that's the spirit!

.. Or so he said to himself. Now walking with the classroom teacher he just made acquaintance with that seemed to know the contract demon from before, he glanced to her, wondering whether she knew what's going on. She looked quite tired, almost pitiful. Were there many problem students because she seemed so tired? Irumasa wondered worrying about it. Then he glanced back to the other participants of the 'Game'. Although they were together since few days ago, he never really had the chance to get to know them better. Of course he was interested in their back stories, but he wouldn't want to ask for his wouldn't want to tell his. So in silence, he just followed the classroom teacher to the classroom his nervousness growing by the steps he made.

"'I was dying, but suddenly had a second chance at living', huh..."

Quickly glancing to both sides, Haru decided that no one heard him muttering to himself and let out a slight sigh. He had to constantly remind himself that this was reality and not some so-called flashback of his life that one supposedly sees as they die. Walking through these hallowed halls of the school building, the school which he would be attending for the duration of this game. With the game in mind, he reminded himself that he was not Haru Isoshima for the time being. Rather, he was to be known as Hase Yuuki. Granted, it wasn't his best alias of all, but he was on the spot and thus said the first combination of names that came to mind. With another sigh, he took out a lollipop from his pocket and popped it into his mouth.

All things considered, stuff could be worse. Haru was given a second chance to live his life; or rather, a shot at receiving a chance for a second life. As long as he completed his end of the deal, he would be given a way to cheat death. Still, he had remaining doubts about the morality of the game. Is it really okay for him to screw someone else's life over for the sake of getting more years for himself? Isn't condemning someone else to death considered to be an act of murder? Glancing at the other students surrounding him, his fellow ghosts and possible enemies, from his peripherals, they all appeared to be certainly fine with that fact. Seemingly as though either they already thought of the idea and chose to ignore it or just ignorant of it all together.

It wasn't until several moments after that he realized he had been unconsciously glaring towards his front. With a quick, vigorous, shake of his head, Haru, or rather Hase, put on a masking smile. A smile, which had taken several months of skillful lying, that was utterly perfect, if he did say so himself. Slowing down his pace, he let himself drift to the rear of the group, several feet behind them. From the back of their heads, he mentally sized up those around him.

First of all, there was the homeroom teacher. Hase already forgot her name, he wasn't overly concerned about her. She was just a homeroom teacher after all, right? Aside from being a teacher that does teacher things, he didn't really care enough to size her up. There was one other male aside from himself, Yahiro. He made Hase feel uneasy; the feeling one gets when they notice a police officer has their eyes on them. One of the others, a female, had really white hair, pretty fitting considering her name is Shiro. He couldn't help but figure she was the most serious of the group. At least, that was the feeling he was getting from her. This piqued his curiosity regarding her past life. As Hase was going to size up the remaining person, a female named Hinata, he noticed that she was glancing back at the rest of the group. When their eyes met, he took the lollipop out of his mouth. With a smile, he tipped an imaginary hat towards her as a silent greeting before inserting his piece of candy back into his mouth and looking away. This one seemed to have a lot of internal conflict, is what Hase's intuition led to believe. Of course, he was usually wrong when it came to first impressions so he pushed aside his mental notes for the time being.

Despite having doubts about whether or not this game is morally acceptable, he was excited to see how things word turn out. While he couldn't speak on behalf of the others, he knew for sure that he was ready to knock 'em dead. Pun fully intended.

'FLUFFY MALLOWS! Also available in other flavors such as caramel pudding, gingerbread, and many more! Mystery Freebie Inside! Collect them all!'

Yanagi merely blinked at the humongous text written on the center of the snack's wrapper. So, people still manufacture freebies for this kind of stuff. How nostalgic. However, what's with the gingerbread and caramel pudding flavors? Do marshmallows these days come in potato flavor, too? He can never tell. Nevertheless, it just means that the statement;「Some Things Never Change」is true. Like, the fact that his name still started with the letter Y is one of its examples.

It was not his fault! If he knew about it earlier, he would have come up with a cool-sounding name or a mix of the names of the people he look up to, but unfortunately, he didn’t. Instead, he was stuck with a plain sounding name: ‘Yahiro Akita’ which he just coined up on the spot, the day he was reborn.

Well, whatever. Pushing his complaints about his current name behind his head, Yanagi proceeded to open up the bag of marshmallows and dig in as he walked through the hallways alongside a couple more people that were just like him; yup, they were also formerly dead people.

Ironic as it is, Yanagi immediately shuddered at the thought of dead people. Why is it that even after being reborn, he was still such a weakling when it comes to horror? Why couldn’t he fight back that fear? Why was he so hopeless, so weak, feeble and frail, like he couldn’t do anything? His heart sank when he thought about it. Without realizing it, Yanagi was starting to enter the state of depression and felt so heavy.

That was when he suddenly felt a stinging pain that enveloped his tongue. It was painful enough that it made him snap out of it, but didn’t make him yell. Seriously, what the heck? As far as Yanagi can remember, marshmallows were soft and light, not deadly, geez. When Yanagi stuck out his tongue, he saw something dreadful that it made him shout.

He didn’t even had the time to think that, ‘So, this was the thing that pierced my tongue’, but instead, his eyes were frantically scanning through the hallway for a trash can to dispose of the creepy little doll whose eyes were staring straight through Yanagi’s soul. As soon as he found a trash can, he immediately ran to it and spat out the doll which was still in its wrapper with a seal saying, ‘limited edition doll!’ on it.

Yanagi sighed in relief. After making a mental note not to eat while thinking of the most unusual things ever, he turned to the group and realized that he had just broken the silence in the weirdest way possible. To cover up for it, he held out his hand with the bag full of marshmallows and with that permanent smile on his face, he said in an upbeat tone,

“Do you guys want to have some marshmallows~?”

With her hands buried deep into the pockets of her coat Rin gave a yawn as she walked down the hall, a group of four very special students in tow. The school was lively as usual and as they passed other students Rin gave them waves and smiles as they walked by. As the moments ticked on on the way to her classroom the frequency with which students passed them by strangely began to decrease. After rounding a corner Rin came to a stop in the middle of the hallway, the sounds of the school seemed to be completely gone now and down the halls, not a soul could be seen.

Rin turned back to face the group of children, a small smile on her face as she looked over all the faces before her. The smile on her face seemed oddly sincere as she began to speak in an even and calming tone. "Well, good morning everyone... I figure we should get some things out of the way now... Perhaps you've been informed already but I'm Rin Takamura and I'll be your teacher from here on out."

Though she tried to resist it, a yawn forced its way out through her lips before she continued on, "I know what you are and why you're here. Like our oh so charming infirmary teacher, I am also a demon. However, I am not working with him, nor am I working against him... You could say that I'm acting as the host and allowing him to put on his game here, in my territory." She gave a quick glance down to the watch on her wrist before turning her attention back to the group, still smiling lightly.

"Now, I don't know the details of your individual situations but regardless, I expect you all to behave properly as students here... For both of our sakes. And of course, it's only fair that I in return act properly as your teacher, so please don't hesitate to come to me if you need something, whether about school or anything else." With a nod and another yawn she rolled her shoulders, "Now before we move on to the classroom and I introduce all of you to the class... Are there any questions or concerns you'd like me to address?"

Yanagi pouted as he withdrew the bag of marshmallows to his chest after receiving a heavy silence as an answer. He continued walking along with the rest of the group while stuffing a handful of marshmallows in his mouth.

Figures, though. Geez, what was he thinking? It was the first time he met his other companions formally and the situation must be the same for them. They would be cautious, of course! The others would have most likely think that the marshmallows were poisoned or something along those lines, considering what happened earlier. Seriously, what was with that doll, though? It really gave Yanagi the creeps.

In amidst of recalling that unfortunate incident earlier, Yanagi suddenly heard a woman talking which made him stop in his tracks.

"Now before we move on to the classroom and I introduce all of you to the class... Are there any questions or concerns you'd like me to address?"

Eh? Eh?! What was she talking about, Yanagi thought. He turned to the woman who was supposed to be their homeroom teacher, as far as he can recall and noticed her peculiar appearance. Are students these days really troublesome that she has grew eyebags because of it?! How frightening the modern society is. Well, it just means that he still has a lot to learn.

All of a sudden, the boy beside him suddenly asked a question which dragged him out of his thoughts, once again. Yanagi should ought to stop daydreaming, really. Due to Hase Yuuki initiating a question and breaking the silence, it made it easier for Yanagi to raise a question, too. "Oh, me! Me! Are lunches here free, cause I didn't have breakfast yet, besides this bag of marshmallows." Yanagi said in his usual upbeat tone.
