"This is all a game, I am the winner and you are the loser." — Ryuujin Katsuro
15 - 13th of August
Fashion Sense:Because of his quirk, his clothing is usually the same simple outfit as it's his only set of clothes outside of the UA uniform that are fire resistant. Typically, he is seen wearing t-shirts that further cement the fact that he is so full of himself, with messages that say 'check me out', 'better than you' or 'winner'.
Distinguishing Features: A really, really, cocky smile.
Katsuro is obsessed with winning, and as such is a very competitive young man who sees all of his peers as obstacles to his own goals. But this isn’t to say that he dislikes everybody who is reaching for the same things. Katsuro is of the mind that there is no faster way to grow than competing directly with others. He may seem cruel to his classmates, but his insulting remarks and often aggressive attitude are often in his own mind a part of a healthy rivalry and a way to provoke more effort out of people. He wants everybody to work just as hard as he does to reach his perceived “number 1” spot, if only so he can beat them to reach even higher levels. Losing will put him into a wild rage state, often denying the legitimacy of his opponents victory so that he can still claim to be at the top. This can be used against him to motivate or manipulate him into doing something he otherwise wouldn’t do. If you say he can’t do it, he almost certainly will just to prove you wrong.
An outspoken and passionate youth, Katsuro will usually not hesitate to speak his mind on any topic even in cases where a filter might do him some good. This makes him an overbearing and sometimes untolerable presence, but unabashedly honest with everybody.
He would never admit it to anybody, but his arrogance stems from an inferiority superiority complex. Katsuro really just seeks validation that he never received in his early childhood and goes to great lengths to prove himself someone worthy of praise. In his own twisted perception, the only surefire way to earn respect is to be the undeniable best of the best at whatever he does.
His quirk is something he now recognizes and accepts as an extension of himself, just as if not more important as any organ. It is a central part to his identity. He thinks the same way of everybody’s Quirk. Win or lose, your Quirk is a part of you and should be nurtured and celebrated.
Short Quirk explanation:"Fire Hazard" - Katsuro emits a safe-to-breath but highly flammable and explosive gas from his body, however he can't ignite the gas on his own and requires an external ignition source. The process of making the gas is severely dehydrating, so he has to drink a lot of water.
Likes: Lighters. Matches. Soccer. Baseball. Well ventilated rooms. Girls. WINNING.
Dislikes: Getting wet. People that lack motivation. Quirk shaming of any kind. Losing.
Fears: Katsuro is so confident in himself that he lacks much fear of anything. Though he probably wouldn't agree to touch a spider. Voice Actor: Yûki Kaji Main Theme: Ignite - Zedd

”Back home they call me a goddess, here they say I’m Quirky. An... ask-a-lot-- fish!” — Guppi
15 - 15th of July
Fashion Sense: Due to her unusual background, most of Suiko’s clothes are modest and formal. She is often seen wearing kimonos and shrine maiden outfits. Not for any desire or need to, but because that’s just what she’s been taught to wear. Casual wear, even the student uniform, are new and exciting for her.
Distinguishing Features: Pale pink skin. External frilly gills are prominently featured on the sides of her head and face, her eyes appear to only be large coal black pupils with no iris.
Suiko is a very simple girl who only expresses herself using literal and direct language. She often struggles to pronounce words with many syllables and sometimes outright forgets others, leading her to occasionally fail to get her message across to her peers.
She is not used to being treated in a negative way, so much so that she doesn’t even understand most insults. Calling her a gill face might lead her to just agree and ask why you didn’t use her name. Calling her a bitch would just confuse her and she would stubbornly tell you that she isn’t a dog. Persisting with name calling, however, will soon cause her to cry.
Similarly, she has been treated so well her entire life that she often doesn’t feel flattered when complimented. Rather she will nod along as if being told something she already knew. Gifts are seen more as “offerings”, and she doesn’t understand the principles of showing gratitude for them. She is just shy of having a goddess complex.
She is more comfortable and prefers to spend most of her time in the water, be it at the beach, a river, a pond, a stream, a fountain, or just the tub. But due to her previous isolation she is very adventurous and loves new and strange experiences.
Suiko was born in a small island community with little to no Quirk population. Regarded as sacred land by its very devout shinto inhabitants, when Suiko was born they considered her a holy child of the water deity Suijin. Most of her life was spent being pampered, praised, and worshipped by the island inhabitants. People visited her to pray and leave offerings daily.
On the day of her 14th birthday, an unknown man made an attempt on her life. A brutal attack that destroyed large sections of her brain. Miraculously, she not only survived but fully recovered from the incident with not even a scar left behind. The nature of her quirk had saved her, however, many memories of her young life were erased. She couldn’t remember the attempt on her life or who the culprit was, she had lost much of her speaking ability and had to relearn much of everything she had been taught up until that point, and even went through a massive personality shift. No longer a pampered goddess, but an innocent young girl who had to rediscover herself.
She was found by Kumaguma Kumaguma, a man seen as another deity or spirit while visiting the island, but the rest of the world knew him as a teacher at UA. He managed to talk the people of the island into letting Suiko come and learn at UA, where she would be safe from further harm and have a chance to interact with her peers. She is a student in class 1-B.
Short Quirk explanation: Axolotl, Mutant Type. Along with external gills, smooth pale pink skin, and a strong swimming tail, Suiko possesses an incredible healing factor. Given enough time, and as long as her body is kept stable and alive, she can regrow lost limbs, parts or even entire vital organs.
Likes: Swimming. Pools, ponds, puddles, rivers, the ocean. Any water. New experiences, trying things she never has before.
Dislikes: Having her intelligence questioned, acts of violence, sarcasm (she often doesn’t understand it).
Fashion Sense: Mitsuo typically favors baggy clothes and unassuming postures to cover up how scrawny he is, and he'll occasionally adopt a hat to cover his messy hair when he's trying to look more presentable. He's rarely seen without a pair of rather thick glasses on his face, and in their absence he usually looks like he's glaring in disgust at everyone and everything.
Distinguishing Features: Mitsuo is pale and rather underwhelming physically, thanks to a life of mostly being a lonely nerd. His eyes are a bright emerald green and seem to almost glow while Mitsuo is using his quirk.
On the surface, Mitsuo appears a bit on the shy side and mostly unmotivated about just about everything. He's intelligent, yet he puts little effort forth into school. He's constantly looking for social interaction, but he doesn't go out of his way to join extracurriculars or participate in any activities beyond what he has to. He's diligent enough in his hobbies or when he finds something he deems worth doing, and will actively partake in activities that he is directly invited to, but he seems to consider most actions not worth his time if he has to join in himself.
While not totally socially inept, he's hesitant and unknowledgeable about interacting with others beyond a surface level, and is utterly out of his element in terms of emotional connections and deeper relationships. Mitsuo similarly lacks the interpersonal skills to effectively talk about his own problems with others, and as such has a tendency to isolate himself and "shut down" during periods of high emotional distress. This usually ends up being counter-intuitive, as he will often return from his depressive episodes worse off than he was prior to it, due to him simply lacking the means to effectively work through the causative issue himself but being unable or unwilling to reach out to others for support. This significantly hampers his motivation in most scenarios, as he believes that he will ultimately end up failing to form the social connections and sense of belonging that he desperately yearns for.
While Mitsuo doesn't enjoy the social stigma and isolation that comes with having a quirk, he doesn't see possessing one as a bad thing, though he gets a bit uncomfortable when people learn he has a quirk, even if they too have one. He also tends to dissociate himself from his quirk; rather than an intrinsic part of himself, Mitsuo sees his quirk as merely a tool - and a tool without a purpose at that. As such, he's rather apathetic about heroism; he doesn't possess any particularly strong notions of justice or heroic ideals, but rather he sees heroism as something he was forced into by his family and by virtue of merely having a combative quirk. That isn't to say he dislikes his new role as a hero-to-be, in fact he's cautiously optimistic about attending a hero school. He sees it as an opportunity to associate with quirk-possessing people similar to himself for the first time, and to hopefully find a purpose or community he can devote himself to rather than wallow away in loneliness as he had been.
Mitsuo was born to quirkless parents, who were left dumbfounded and horrified when his quirk manifested at a young age. He was a fairly well-behaved kid, and there were few incidents of his quirk causing any significant damage, but everyone around him was understandably wary of the kid that could shoot fireballs from his hands. This wariness extended into outright ostracism in many cases, and Mitsuo was left isolated from his peers for nearly his entire childhood. Anyone who befriended him would distance themselves from him once they learned about his quirk, and Mitsuo eventually gave up on the prospect of making friends beyond shallow acquaintanceships and resigned himself to a miserable loneliness. Despite this, he lacks vindictive feeling toward society for the most part, seeing lashing out at those who wronged him as troublesome and ultimately pointless, as he doesn't see how it would give him the acceptance he ultimately desires.
Mitsuo's father, a police officer, tried for most of Mitsuo's life to instill a strong sense of duty in him to protect others, but Mitsuo's lack of any real connection to just about anyone left him without a real emotional tie to those he was supposedly meant to protect, and at best his father only inspired a hollow platitude of justice in him rather than true idealism. Ironically, his father firmly denounced quirk vigilantism, which did nothing to inspire Mitsuo to hold the values of justice or heroism any higher than trivial justifications for the law.
Will-o-Wisp - An emitter type quirk that allows Mitsuo to launch orbs of light from his palms and control their trajectory at will. When an orb makes contact with a solid object, it will detonate in a small explosion.
"I'm a hero! That means I can't let anyone else get hurt!" — Haruki
Himura Haruki... again
Male, though his gender identity isn't exactly iron-strong.
14 - August 15
Weight: 148 lbs
Fashion Sense: Haruki wears loose fitting clothes, his wardrobe almost entirely in shades of black. He usually wears sweat shirts and jogging pants, but sometimes dons a white T-shirt when he feels in a good mood.
Distinguishing Features: Haruki's surprisingly high BMI is as a result of an impressive musculature that never ceases to surprise when it's revealed. Haruki's skin is milk-white, and he is unable to tan. His eyes are red with black sclera, and his canine teeth are fang-like. His hair is a dark blue that usually looks black when not in direct light. His hair is wild and untamed, extending down over his shoulders. Underneath there's a pair of sideburns, surprising for someone of his young age, these accentuate his sharp cheek bones while distracting from his admittedly thin jawline.
Himura Haruki is excitable, he will often run over to talk to people who excite him, but embarrass himself due to a lack of control. When you do talk to him, you'll be struck by the pure social incompetence on display, he misinterprets jokes as serious statements, insults people unintentionally, and constantly drops accidental innuendo. He behaves in a childish fashion at times, but can be very articulate and intelligent when he wants to be.
He's very nice, aggressively self-sacrificing, and hates letting things turn violent. He may be a bit of a coward, but he has quite a bit of hidden bravery when push comes to shove, or when he gets angry. Haruki doesn't have an exceptionally hair-trigger temper, but for such a kind-hearted soul, he can be violent. Very violent. To the point where you'd almost think he becomes another person. Despite all of these problems, Haruki is perhaps the most heroic orphan boy you'll find. He will leap to the defense of anyone he thinks to be in danger, and believes that no matter the situation, making sure that everyone is safe is the most important thing a hero can do.
Haruki had a life probably unlike that of most everyone. His father was part of the Jieitai, but fell ill with cancer and died before Haruki got the chance to know him. His mother worked herself ragged trying to raise Haruki, but she eventually burnt herself out, and died herself as a result of the overwork. Haruki was six. He spent the rest of his childhood in an orphanage. He had very few friends even at that easygoing age.
Things only got worse when his quirk manifested. Immediately Haruki became a pariah as a result of the shift in appearance and sudden creepy ability. Even the adults in his life were distrusting of him, and as a result, Haruki never got any love of any sort.
Haruki was eventually adopted, far too late, by a scientist and a stay-at-home mother who failed to connect with the boy. They did, however, give him an insight into the world of vigilantism for the first time. Haruki immediately knew his course in life. A few fights later, he was expelled from school. That didn't matter, he was going to be a hero. He took martial arts classes, trained his quirk, everything possible, because Haruki wanted to be a hero. That was all.
Short Quirk explanation:Transformation Class Quirk: Symbiotic Specter!
Haruki is capable of "hopping" into someone else's body. If he makes eye contact with someone within 5 feet of him and chooses to do so, he disappears into the person's body, and from there becomes capable of speaking to them silently, though they must talk out loud for him to hear them, seeing in a three hundred and sixty degree cone around them, and manifesting up to two limbs, or the torso, from their body, which appear floating at most five inches away.
"Danny". They have yet to tell anyone their real name
14-15 - ?
Weight: 80 lbs
Fashion Sense: Baggy everything. Danny is covered, one hundred percent of their body, one hundred percent of the time. They wear a kosode in warm weather, while wearing more modern wear in the winter. They always have a scarf and a pair of gloves on no matter the weather, and have a large number of hats, ranging from wide brimmed hats with veils to beanies.
Distinguishing Features: The small pile of clothing in the shape of a human really doesn't need much else to distinguish them.
Danny is extremely, extremely timid. They almost never talk to anyone, even when alongside someone they trust. When they do talk, Danny only talks in short sentences, and with a wilting voice. Danny often struggles to be heard in a crowd, or when in a trio... or when talking to one other person, alright, Danny rarely talks audibly. Danny also never, never ever goes within ten feet of someone unless someone they trust has introduced them. This means that Danny really struggles in crowds, and usually breaks down in tears if they end up in the middle of one.
All of these things are a symptom of Danny's extreme agoraphobia, Danny is afraid of people knowing their identity, afraid of being judged, afraid of someone finding them attractive, afraid of being made fun of, afraid of being alone, afraid of pretty much everything. Danny can't even be left in a room alone without breaking down in tears, and clings to those they trust extremely tightly, both figuratively and very literally. Building Danny's trust is a long and arduous process, and only results in now being one of the few things that will calm a very needy child.
What a gift.
"Danny"s history has never been revealed, at least not by Danny, but their sister, Rei, is more than willing to tell their backstory. Rei and Danny were born in Tokyo to a salaryman and his housewife. Rei is a year older than Danny, but is two feet taller than they are and already looks a woman grown.
From what Rei says, the pair of them were treated as expected by a pair of overworked parents. That is, they were neglected heavily. Danny was already developmentally stunted, not learning several basic things until out of toddlerhood, such as talking and reading. Danny was not as afraid then, and would get into plenty of mischief with Rei, tormenting their mother, who was usually the only other person home when she wasn't busy with one of her many part-time jobs.
Danny's quirk manifested slightly later than most, but it manifested nonetheless. What happened next seems to have been a severely traumatic event for the both of them. Danny's quirk lacks the power to do anything horrible, but considering their father is currently in the prison system for a series of offenses apparently committed within a single day, some especially heinous, it's not hard to suggest that it was he, and not Danny's quirk that caused their trauma.
Danny entered their current agoraphobic state as a result of this, and relied on Rei for basically everything. Danny was unable to be properly schooled, and Rei was forced to work heavily with the teachers to school them. Rei's hard work, though driving her to behave as a delinquent just to get some enjoyment out of her life, did get her into UA as a general studies student, and her education allowed Danny to do the same a year later, though they had been residing there through Rei's first year.
Now Rei, having given up her childhood for her younger sibling, desires to open them to other people, and perhaps relax the strain on her shoulders.
Short Quirk explanation:Transformation Class Quirk: Transformative Albinism
Danny can take the characteristics of someone with albinism through their quirk. Their hair turns white, their skin turns ghastly pale, and their eyes turn red. They lose all melanin in their skin and become especially vulnerable to the sun. This quirk really has no applications in combat or otherwise, but Danny isn't exactly a hero student, so it's more a burden that puts a target on the poor kid's head. Like they needed any more stress,
"You’ll find I really am just a big dork.” — Emiko Zhao
15 – 23/03
Half Japanese, Half Chinese
Fashion Sense: Emiko prefers light and simple clothing such as plain t-shirts and singlets accompanied by a good, loose pair of trousers. If she is forced to wear a skirt, she will be wearing sweatpants underneath.
Distinguishing Features: I’d mention the white hair, but nobody mentions wacky hair in animu RPs.
Emiko Zhao is two things, a big jock and a big dork. She loves to run, exercise, and work out while also enjoying watching anime, reading manga, and playing video games. She comes across as extremely energetic when met in person. She acts and sounds overly enthusiastic about everything, and she usually means to be too. Although she’s not shy about showing off her athletic interests, she does express her geeky interests much more subtly. She usually won’t intentionally reveal her love for all things nerdy unless someone makes it clear they like that stuff too. Emiko is typically a non-judgemental person, having come from a place of being judged for her habits herself. This is usually limited to odd habits rather than poor behaviour, as Emiko won’t tolerate someone being a jerk to her for too long. Otherwise, she’s prepared to talk people’s ears off about their hobbies, even if she doesn’t know a thing about them.
Once upon a time, there was a Sargent in the People’s Liberation Army of China called Jun-Tao Zhao. Jun-Tao was unfortunate enough to have a quirk, and although he tried to keep it a secret, he was eventually discovered. He ended up going into a sort of voluntary exile in Japan, hoping he could keep his identity and quirk a secret in a foreign country. There, he fell in love with a woman called Emiya Sakuma, and the two of them married. While Emiya was quirkless, she did not judge Jun-Tao for who he was, and endeavoured to help maintain his secret.
Their secret only got more complicated when it became apparent their daughter, Emiko, also possessed a quirk. Now Emiya was scared that she would be discovered at a tender age and wanted to keep her as safe as possible. In doing so, she kept her shut up in her room as much as possible and limited her time outside. Emiko began to gain weight and develop unhealthy obsessions with anime, manga, and video games during her seclusion. Jun-Tao was on board at first, but watching as his daughter became an unhealthy recluse, he insisted that he be allowed to rectify the situation. She was even getting bullied at school due to how she came across. Emiya resisted initially, but eventually relented, provided she still remains inside as much as possible.
Jun-Tao then set to work whipping his daughter back into shape. He first tried the direct approach and brought out the old drill instructor in him, basically ordering his little girl to do some exercise and eat healthy. That didn’t work at all. Emiko had gotten far too used to her life style and tended to pout and throw tantrums when pushed. Emiya told her husband the stick approach wouldn’t work so well on a small child, and suggested he offer her something to secure her co-operation. As much as it went against his principles, Jun-Tao agreed. The only question was what he could offer her. He then made another decision that went against his principles and said:
“If you agree to exercise with me, then I’ll watch your damn cartoons with you.”
Emiko was over the moon to have her daddy watch anime with her. Every time they sat down for a viewing, Jun-Tao would insist they do their exercise routine. Soon enough, Emiko was burning weight fast and even gaining muscle, while Jun-Tao was gaining a grudging respect for some of the titles Emiko insisted on showing her. As years went by, Emiko also gained an appreciation for physical exercise, and even became more popular at school as a result. Life was better for everyone, more or less.
Jun-Tao was eventually hired by UA to act as a phys-ed teacher, primarily for its second year students. As a consequence, both he and Emiya thought it would be a good idea to enrol Emiko in the hero programme there. Emiko also had no objections. Between her zest for everything physical and her generally pleasant disposition, the idea of being some big damn hero was plentifully appealing to her. There was of course the added benefit of being able to dispense with the life of keeping her quirk a secret.
Short Quirk explanation: This quirk involves creating blasts of kinetic energy by making movements like kicking and punching. The blasts can travel some distance and can be performed in quick succession.
Likes: -Anime -Manga -Video Games -Exercise -Martial Arts -Chatting with others
Dislikes: -Having nothing to do -Jerks (or as she calls them “butts”) -Restrictive clothing -Girly clothes -Being made fun of
"Time to Go Beyond, Plus Ultra! That's Latin you freakin' dweeb, shut up, it's cool!"
14 - 11/11
Fashion Sense: Usually androgynous attire, things that could suit a guy or gal, but will occasionally dress up in girls clothes.
Distinguishing Features:He's a skinny young man, scrawny too, lacking in muscles. His hair gives off a faint green glow, particularly along the darker strands.
Abrasive, assertive, arrogant and audacious, Kagayaku tends to be a dominating presence in spite of his stature. Rude and uncaring at the worst of times, he's about as close to a bully as the school gets, swinging verbal insults at other students and disobeying the teachers when he feels he can get away with it. In spite of this, he has incredible social and academic smarts, is very resourceful, picks up on subtlest of cues, and has a passion for efficiency. However, due to his pride and his less than hospitable nature, these talents aren't usually shared with others, even getting to a point where his anger could make him shortsighted. If he wants to become a successful hero, he needs to quit with the attitude. That, and have the drive to become a decent hero in the first place. Also hates mutants.
Kagayaku Kimiko is not our young "hero's" name by birth, but it is one he needs to become familiar with, and quickly. He was born to a poor family in Roppongi, his father and mother both caught up in a life of crime, both of them born with Quirks. His mother, also by the name of Kimiko, has the Quirk Glow: a simple Quirk where one's skin glows a luminescent colour depending on their mood. His father, Dogorasu, has the Quirk Bones: his broken bones give him enhanced physical strength, and heal much faster than normal. This unique combination lead to the conception of Kagayaku, whose strange upbringing gifted him a unique perspective on life and how to live it.
His parents never tried to hide their careers from their child, knowing full well the shock from such a secret would cause him to panic if word ever got out. Instead, they persuaded him that their way of living was a result of poor decision making and plain old bad luck, begging for his understanding. Kagayaku trusted in his parents -- who wouldn't at that age -- and adopted their line of thinking. Though never able to help with the big things, he would steal from other kids and bully students out of food or lunch money, doing what he had to in order to help put bread on the table. He was pretty successful too, using a mask with a hat, thick clothes, short hair and by picking out the weaker students, those that wouldn't tell. His parents, proud of their son's willingness to help, endorsed the behaviour, but encouraged he keep up a good academic record, both to ensure a good future and so he wouldn't arouse suspicion.
Later on in life, things became harder for the family as a whole. Kagayaku met his match one day after he picked a fight with someone his own size - a mutant who happened to have friends who had been in similar situations before and were willing to stick their neck out for a friend. Due to his academic record he was spared being expelled but wouldn't be able to help his parents out now that his secret was out. Similarly, his mother had been caught during a particularly poor mugging and was arrested, and his father, shortly thereafter, was left unable to work due to injury. Due to this, his father used a friendly contact to get a loan, but without the ability to pay the loaners back, things became complicated quickly.
Following his middle school graduation, Kagayaku came home to find his apartment caught on fire and his father nowhere to be found. Suddenly, he was on his own, left without answers to a great number of questions and with nobody to rely on. His old habits became his best friend, surviving on the streets, doing what he could to get by. It only got more complicated after a chance encounter with the Yakuza. Despite surviving the encounter, it didn't do him any good; they were after him, and it threw him into a panic. Suddenly he became so much more aware of himself, what he did in public, whether or not someone was following close behind. The stress of it all began to build as the enormous force of the Japanese underbelly crawled up to grab him by the ankles, the young man only able to get by thanks to his craftiness and creativity. Not only that, but high school was fast approaching, despite not wanting to be easily accessible, he still wanted to respect his parents wishes of a good education. All of these factors combined, Kagayaku began to consider taking hero school as a potential way forward.
Which brings us to one Kagayaku Kimiko arriving at U.A. in a girl's uniform. Under his fake name and fake clothes, he has signed up for hero school with a fake ID and fake documents, utilising a fake background to bypass systems that impede on his fake dream of becoming a hero, all to escape a very real, very dangerous threat. Make as little friends as possible, learn as much as he can, do what he needs to in order to get by. Screw becoming a hero or upholding justice. Survival comes first.
The Glowing Quirk: Glowstick
Short Quirk explanation: Whenever Kimiko 'cracks' a part of his body, such as knuckles or knees, he emits a soft glow of luminescent light. This glow lasts between 12 and 24 minutes, depending on temperature. His hair also glows constantly for some reason, with streaks that are particularly strong here and there.

"My secret is I’m almost always wet.” — Suihara, Mizura
16 – 13/05
Fashion Sense:Mizura tends to wear fashionable clothes that show off her figure.
Distinguishing Features:Mizura is…well developed for her age, in many ways.
At first glance, Mizura is a playful flirt. She seems to like saying things to fluster people and to twist their words. She often comes across less than serious in many situations, and even when confronted with openly hostile people she’ll be full of jokes to play off the tense mood. Aside from her generally flirtatious demeanor, she is rarely deliberately offensive beyond the possibility someone isn’t a fan of sex jokes. Even though her words are usually silly in nature, she is at least supportive of other people’s goals.
In truth, Mizura does not entirely enjoy her own flirtatious personality. While she keeps up the act because she feels it serves a purpose, she hates the idea of portraying herself as a sex object and is always pleasantly surprised when people don’t get taken in by her façade. Beneath all those dumb sex jokes is an intelligent and observant young lady that would like nothing more than to be recognised as such, but she’s just too mistrustful to not make use of what she considers her defence mechanism.
Mizura is the child of a single mother, a woman named Reimi Suihara. Having to raise both Mizura and her younger brother, Mizuro, on her own, Reimi developed a very hardened personality. She did what she had to in order to make ends meet. However, rather than resort to the obvious tactics of desperation for a young woman with little money, Reimi instead resorted to using others for their money. Mizura saw many men and women come and go from the many apartments they moved in and out of. All of them appeared to be in relationships with her mother, but none of them stayed around for long. One day when she was older, Mizura asked her mother why she had so many people coming and going, and Reimi sat her down for a chat.
She told her; “Sex is a weapon, Mizura. Some people do very stupid things in order to get it. Even if you just let them think you’re going to give them what they want, you can take them for a ride. And then you can get the money for your kids from those very stupid people.”
Mizura barely understood what she had told her at the time. To her young brain, it just sounded like her mother had admitted to stealing from people. She wasn’t entirely happy about that. In the meantime, Mizura was making progress at school. While it was hard because she moved around so much, she seemed to have a talent for academia. But as she got older, school only got harder, as she began to attract unwanted attention from others. In particular, one kid called Kyosuke liked to push and shove her in the corridors and make inappropriate comments about her developments. Stressed out and unable to get the faculty to take her complains seriously, Mizura was at a loss for what to do until one day Kyosuke approached her and said that if she agreed to be his girlfriend, he’d cut it out.
The mere thought of it sickened her…but Mizura said yes. She remembered what her mother had told her, so she decided to let Kyosuke think they were a couple. She said it aloud. She flirted with him, taking cues from how her mother behaved. She made the whole school think she was genuinely into him…while giving him absolutely nothing of substance. Before she left school, she’d even bilked him out of several thousand yen worth of stuff. A part of her felt disgusted by her own behaviour, but she had to admit, this was better than being a meek little target. It was a good thing for Mizura that her mother moved around so often, as it gave her the perfect excuse to walk out on Kyosuke and never see his nasty face again.
After that, Mizura continued to wield sex appeal like a weapon. It was something she could use to keep people confused and flustered and thinking she was some silly bimbo. All the while she prepared for a future where she could forget all the foolishness of her past. At first she had considered going into something science related, but she was then reminded of the advent of Hero schools and thought that perhaps it might be a more fulfilling life to be a Hero.
Short Quirk explanation:Mizura’s Quirk allows her to manipulate water by touching it with her hands.
Likes: Mizura has a penchant for intelligent discussion, or at least discussion on a topic with some higher value to it. She likes to sum up the people around her, even if it’s purely off of base assumptions. Also she likes a nice caramel cake. And dancing, she loves dancing.
Dislikes: She dislikes it when people interpret her flirting as her being into them. She especially dislikes it if they think they’re a couple because of it. She vehemently dislikes it if people think she owes them something due to all the flirting and jokes.
She also doesn’t like sour food all that much.
Fears: Mizura deeply fears having people take her too seriously.
"What light through yonder... um... I forgot the other part. I'm sorry, i'm really bad at this. — Daizo Chujiro
16 - 8th/September
Fashion Sense:Absolute trash. Black in all things, with more vibrant colors on his shirts.
Distinguishing Features: Dyed hair changes on the regular, usually dark colors.
A lover of life and the arts, sculpting and painting are his favorite passtimes. Daizo enjoys meeting people and making friends but his quirk is often a downer to those around him, which can lead to a flip in personality where he is more comfortable in self isolation rather than mingling. Has a fondness for writing poetry, despite it often being awful and outright nonsensical strings of words. This habit is due to the nature of his quirk so Daizo tries hard not to speak anything outloud unless required. They also have a habit of complimenting and flirting with every girl he takes a liking to. This usually results in accidentally reciting poetry.. which usually means they do not want anything to do with him anymore.
coming from a home of energetic and positive thinking, but quirkless, parents is a blessing and a curse for Daizo who tries hard to maintain the same sense of wonder and appreciation but it is difficult to do when he is sometimes gloomy. Brooding moments are not uncommon for him and his parents are relentless in attemptingto cheer him up, to a point where he feels powerless against the unending joy they all but radiate. That isn't to say he doesn't love them to pieces though. Rather it's the opposite. In times of great stress and self dount Daizo is reminded why he wants to be a hero, why he works hard to create things of vibrance and beauty. If everything was gloomy and sad, his parents would be sad too. Only villains deserved to feel hopeless and helpless!
QUIRK - Oblivion
Short Quirk explanation: When Daizo recites poetry of any kind he makes everyone near him extremely sad. Sheer negativity robs you of your will to go on.
Fears:Dissapointing his parents and being left truly alone. Isolation except by his own choice is heartbreaking and terrifying to him.
Fashion Sense:Perhaps because of her personality, Konomi usually doesn't have an exact preference of what she would wear, though she does seem to favor somewhat darker colors in any sort of clothing she wears. Her current "favorite" outfit is a pair of black jeans, black tank top and a gray cardigan over it.
Once she splits apart with her quirk, she seems to favor things that are slightly more appropriate for what child of her current age and appearance would wear, despite her maintaining her intelligence and her personality even in this form. Her current favorite outfit in this form, for both of her forms, is a grey hoodie, a white skirt and a black and white jacket over it all.
Distinguishing Features: In her regular form, Konomi seems to be a bit more developed in certain areas of her body than what would be normal for her age.
Konomi, on a surface level seems to be a mature and collected girl for her age, a light smile smile always adorning her expression. She is proactive in most things and works hard to achieve whatever her goal is at the time. However, when it comes to social interactions in general, she takes this a new level entirely. Though she still maintains her usual calm expression and her light smile, she almost always moves in to greet any new people she sees as if drawn like a magnet to them.
In her regular form, she maintains her calmness during regular conversations, smiling and laughing when and if the situation requires it. However, when she splits, the two Konomi's become absolute bundles of joy with wide, happy smiles always adorning their little faces. They become even more eager for conversation than her regular form, zipping from person to person, asking them questions, talking to them and outright asking them to become her friends.
One thing both of her forms have in common is the fact that they always seem to wish to cheer people who are sad, unsure of themselves or outright depressed. It would seem that she is attracted to these kind of people a bit more than other more regular people.
Nobody really knows of Konomi's actual past as she never really speaks about it and does not seem to like to speak about it much at all. However, from what little she does say, it seems that her childhood was not a happy one, especially since her quirk manifested for the first time among a population that was mostly quirkless and hated other quirk users.
However, she insists that her past does not matter one bit to her, instead it's the present that needs her attention and that she needs to bring happiness to all she meets.
Demi-cellular Division: Her quirk, as far as she or anyone else is concerned makes her able to split herself into two smaller versions of herself that look exactly the same as one another.
Likes: - Friendliness - Joy(in other people) - Singing - Exercising - Completing a goal
Dislikes: - Herself - Sadness(in other people) - Quirk Hating People - Hate - Pineapples
Fears: - Not being able to make any friends. - Being hated by any new people. - Her parents
Fashion Sense: She likes sportsy clothing, tracksuits and the like, comfortable clothing with a heavy preference for synthetic fibers. She likes to wear green and avoids blue since she doesn’t want to be known as “that one water girl”
Distinguishing Features: She is shorter than her age average, though that hardly helps her to stand out. Ever since her quirk appeared, her hair is split in black and white colors.
She is a focused, dedicated girl, who likes to explore her powers and challenge herself (Physically). She lives in the moment and is very forward about her feelings, this carelessness results in a strong mental resilience, she is rarely provoked by the words of others, but still takes offense and will act colder, if not a bit malicious, to those who try too hard to bother her.
Nobody ever described Yuuki as particularly bright, she often doesn’t bother justifying her ideas or questioning why they went wrong, her pattern recognition isn’t the best and more often than not she takes the wildest assumptions from explanations that should be simple. While able to focus, she also feels a need to move her body, and this detracts from her ability to read or study.
She tries to be independent and dislikes places with too many rules, even if she agrees with them, with its a sentiment born from disliking the overall idea of it as well as disliking having to memorize too many things. And while it is nice that she has the mindset to brush off bullies and not be shy about her mind, her body and her quirk, there are perhaps things she should be shy about, like being shy about the mess that she calls a room, being shy about forgetting that when she goes to the class she needs to wear more than a swimsuit, being shy about missing deadlines for school projects… Instead, it seems only others are bothered by her careless ways.
Yuuki had a normal life, living in a suburban area in the inland sea region with her very lenient parents. Her school life started with promise with her ability to focus, but soon went downhill when the topics became too complex for her to care about, she much preferred sports but didn’t have the discipline to stay in teams. Yuuki soon became the harmless sort of student who breaks a few rules and misses a few classes but never did anything ‘mean’, like getting into fights, though that also had to do with her mix of strong will, erractiness and athletic skills making her a high risk low return bullying target. As an example, though this was after the quirk, when people started to mock her calling her “zebra” due to the white and black hair, she simply embraced it, disarming the bullies.
When her quirk first appeared, many thought she was just joking or being weird as usual, since “the ability to be wet”, as she described it in those early days, seemed like the talk of a girl with too much time and a bucket of water. Her quirkless parents didn’t react with particular strong feelings, they were not scared or proud, to them it was just another chapter of Yuuki finding another weird hobby, albeit one that she wouldn’t grow out of.
QUIRK 💧 Water Coating - A very discreet quirk that adds a layer of water over all of Yuuk’s skin, thus taking away friction, allowing aquaplaning at will.
OTHERS Genuinely believes in heroism, though more on the cool side of it. Is actually quite fussy about her image as a hero, doesn’t want to be known just for being a water user.
"Red Hero of Justice, Ebiranger Red, has arrived!"
— Ebisugawa Hyouka, while switching between poses
Ebisugawa, Hyouka (蝦夷川 砲火)
14 - 10th of May
Weight: 130 lbs
Hyouka tends to dress very casually when not in uniform, most of the time sporting sweatpants and some t-shirt with a weird design or mascot character. She also wears black rubber claw-gloves with bumps and various attachments for interacting with everyday human objects, lovingly made by her father. Hyouka enjoys IP merchandise from her favorite genres and loves displaying said merch whenever given the opportunity. Her aesthetic resembles that of a middle school fanboy for all things shounen. The only thing she really lacks is video game merchandise because her hands are not conducive to playing games, so she never really got into them.
Hyouka is short for her age, often getting mistaken for a middle schooler. She has long, straight, red hair that goes down to her calves, and guarded, red eyes. Long antennae sprout from the top of her head, while her skin is covered in patches of rust-red shell. Instead of hands, her arms end in pincers, with her left being larger and bulkier than her right.
Shy and introverted, Hyouka is an otaku who likes nerdy, boyish things, like Super Sentai, Ultraman, Godzilla movies, Cantonese Kung Fu movies, and giant mecha anime. She has poor self-awareness and loses herself to excitement when it comes to her hobbies or when doing 'heroic' deeds. This makes her appear to switch between an 'outgoing' side and a 'shrinking violet' side. Growing up in a world where quirks are reviled, and mutation quirks in particular are demonized, Hyouka has attempted to close herself off from the ridicule by embracing isolation. Yet her spirit continues to burn with fiery heroism. In a field dominated by exemplars of the human form, Hyouka seeks to prove that even Saturday morning cartoon monsters can be heroes.
Her parents immediately knew something was wrong when a soft, translucent egg was born instead of an infant. Though they had never really had to think about relationships between normal humans and those with quirks, the birth of their child made them reevaluate their worldview. Fortunately, they decided to embrace their daughter, and learn tolerance for others among her new and unique kind.
Because of her unique hands, her mother kept her away from house chores, so her father taught her to participate in his hobbies, where her destructive, 'fat fingers' were less of an issue. Through this she was able to develop passable levels of manual dexterity, though she needs to resort to wearing special rubber gloves that provide her with some form of grip in order to deal with various everyday objects. But because of these closer interactions with her father, she picked up on many of his favorite forms of media, becoming a bit of a tomboy and a daddy's girl. She became enamored with hero shows, and because her parents treated her as their precious little princess, she had never considered how others would react to her appearance until she entered school.
In school, she didn't understand why kids avoided her or talked about her behind her back, or why teachers often turned a blind eye to kids who bullied her. Everything came to a head during a class in which all the students took turns standing in front of the class and read aloud their essay on what they wanted to be when they grew up. Hyouka announced loudly and proudly that she was going to be a hero, like the ones from TV shows and cartoons. The other students jeered, calling her Baltan-seijin, and that she would never be a hero. She ran home in tears and binge-watched her favorite shows, realizing the sheer number of clawed, arthropod-like aliens, and that to the rest of the world, she looked just like these monsters. Though her parents tried to encourage her, she closed herself off from her peers, allowing the hurled insults to roll off her shoulder. Over time, with no friends and no after-school activities, Hyouka began spending more and more time at home, going to school only for her mandatory studies.
To keep her engaged, her father started encouraging her to try various feats with her quirk, filming her, and posting videos online, resulting in playlists like the "Hydraulic Pinch Channel" and "Shrimp Tail Parkour", in which Hyouka pushes the limits on what she can crush with her claws and uses her massive tail to aid in ridiculous jumping feats. Online, things that were not socially acceptable found their niche, and behind the barrier of silicon, Hyouka was allowed to be herself, reviving her hope in one day pursuing her dream. But the family, who believed in peace between those with quirks and those without, felt that vigilantism was not only dangerous, but technically unlawful, and that the ideal hero worked in accordance with the law instead of outside of it. So when the announcement of a brand new school specifically for training heroes came up, Hyouka knew she had to apply.
MUTANT CLASS QUIRK - Shrimp!
Short Quirk explanation:
Does whatever a shrimp can! She has powerful, crushing claws and a powerful tail that helps her jump high in the air and swim rapidly. She can breathe underwater, plates of red shell pepper her skin, providing some protection, and overall, she has greater than average strength for a human her size. Long antennae sprout from the top of her head, are sensitive to smell and touch, and aid her otherwise clumsy fingers.
Nori (seaweed paper)
Scavenger birds, like crows, pigeons, and seagulls
Being forced to 'pretty up'
Being treated like a monster. Being blocked from becoming a hero based on her appearance.
To become a hero and show the world that mutant quirks are not monsters. To normalize mutant quirks in society.
Red Ranger (various)
Bruce Lee (the one and only)
Watching her dad make Gunpla
Giant mecha shows/movies
Being a NicoNico Douga content creator
Extensive otaku knowledge/hardcore fan of specific shounen genres
Feats of strength
Feats of manual dexterity
JAM Project, and hot-blooded shounen songs in general.
Tokusatsu shows, like Ultraman, Super Sentai, and Godzilla movies. Old school Cantonese Kung Fu movies. Old school giant mecha anime. NicoNico Douga videos.
Of particular note is Hyouka's extreme lack of manual dexterity, as she has pincers instead of hands. She has special gloves and other handicap equipment for dealing with everyday objects like doorknobs, eating utensils, computer keyboards, and her cell phone. She has to use spoons and forks like a barbarian instead of the more culturally refined chopsticks.
Hyouka was taught from a young age that heroes were not picky about their food and always ate their vegetables so they could grow up to be strong, so Hyouka has always had a fairly healthy and nutritious diet. She isn't a health nut, and does like her occasional snack or junk food, but she never loses self-control, or let her cravings consume her. Her one weakness is sour foods, while she is fine with a dash of vinegar or lemon and lime added for flavor, excessively sour foods is not something she can handle. Seafood of any sort is her favorite.
Hyouka was taught from a young age that heroes required self-discipline. Due to her clumsy fingers, acts personal hygiene, like tooth brushing and applying soap when washing, were difficult. But her parents taught her to push through and overcome the difficulty in order to develop self-discipline. So Hyouka now has very regimented self-care routines. She's not afraid of getting dirty, because she knows she'll clean herself up, but messy behavior, like dropping crumbs on the floor, is one of her pet peeves.
Legal Name- Kemonohito, Yaseishi Hero Name- (The) Hunter Nicname(s)- Ya
16 - Birthdate 6, June
Height: 5'4" Weight: 140 Fashion Sense:Neutral clothes, long sleeves, flowy open over-shirts with loose shirts underneath, baggy pants, thick belts or hip-scarves, various masks, and bones. Distinguishing Features: Aside from the mane of green hair, the black sclera and yellow eyes come to mind. Voice Quality: Lilting, mildly smokey,
Ya is critical, antisocial, mildly misanthropic, and doesn't seem to give a damn about anything. A sarcastic street brawler, this kid only seems to take only self-found answers. Yaseishi also possesses a silvered tongue, and is rather deft at intimidation, especially when their Quirk is in full effect.
Yaseishi's birth was a surprise, not that that's saying much, seeing as she has a Quirk. It was pretty obvious at birth, as her sclera were black, and she had a long thin tail. Her parents tried to keep this quiet, but things were difficult. Her teeth grew in sharp, like an animal's, and she small grew horns before she grew hair. They weren't exactly well moneyed individuals, and couldn't afford to move from the small suburb they lived for a sense of anonymity, nor were they able to alter their house to make it more private. And, as things often do, it went from bad to worse.
Wild Spirit This Transformation Quirk allows for wild manifestations of a base mutation!
Likes: Quiet, medium sized spaces, winter Dislikes: Her full name, people, needless platitudes, socialites Theme:Vicious Hex:3f704d
Height: Shinji is considered average for his age, at 5 feet and 5 inches. Shinji still believe he still has room to grow since both his brothers are just over six feet.
Weight: Although considered more mesomorph-like, Shinji is lean and somewhat lanky, currently weighing 126 pounds.
Fashion Sense: Aside from leaning towards bright colors, Shinji has no other particular preference in the clothes he wears as long as they're comfortable and appropriate. This might be attributed to the fact that he has received a lot of hand-me-downs from his brothers and father.
Distinguishing Features: If his adorable unkempt blond hair and soft olive green eyes aren’t distinguishing, I’d say it would have to be his smile then. It’s not amazing, but regardless of the situation, it’s always there. Even when he sleeps; its kind of weird though.
At first glance, most would notice Shinji's cheerful, carefree, and fun-loving nature. He is approachable to many and exudes a vibe of confidence and lightheartedness even in the most dire of situations. His straightforwardness and being able to voice out his thoughts without restraints, may be misconstrued as tactlessness and just being rude. Although practical, Shinji enjoys a good challenge and usually turns to his patience and craftiness to overcome hurdles thrown at him. Although playful, there's no denying that Shinji is stubborn, and is usually difficult to deal with.
For Shinji, he considers being a hero to be more of a profession - an extravagant one at that - than a lifestyle. When he takes part in acts of heroism, he becomes more cautious and professional with what he says and does.
Shinji was born fifth into a family of five with his parents and older brothers being quirkless. His parents were both physicians, with his father - Shoji - focusing his practice on medical research on the quirk factor, and his mother - Shuna - a physiatrist that specialized in quirk-induced injury rehabilitation. Given the profession of their parents, Shinji's brothers aimed to follow in their footsteps with his eldest brother - Shiro - being a medical student in his third year, and his other brother - Shingo - a university student finishing his degree in pharmacy, who was hoping to enter medical school the year after.
Shinji was expected to do the same, but unfortunately, he was different. He persistently rejected the idea of becoming a doctor, and wanted to pursue a career as a police. Also, Shinji had a quirk. At the age of four, while indulging in some afternoon playtime with Chunchunmaru - a neighborhood friend - what was supposed to be a simple fist bump to greet his buddy, turned into quite the predicament. Obnoxious screams filled with panic along with a face full of tears and snot plagued the young neighborhood boy's face as his right hand up to his elbow, was covered in a thick layer of frigid ice. Aunties and housewives from all around appeared out of nowhere and surrounded the stunned Shinji and the poor Chunchunmaru. While the useful ones tried to help the semi-frozen youngster, the rest began gossiping and whispered snide remarks while pointing and staring at Shinji. What was a clueless and confused boy to do in such a situation? Well, as expected, he ran home in tears.
With the relative influence his family possessed, preventing the incident from escalating any further was easy enough. That day, Shinji learned a valuable lesson, a single fuck up was all it took to change a person. He decided to never fully trust others again and understood the importance of being cautious. Where these thoughts came from, we can't really say, but what would one expect from a stupid impressionable child? One thing was obvious though, no one in his family seemed to had guided him after what had happened. We'll give them the benefit of the thought and assume that they were swamped with work and other responsibilities.
As the years passed, Shinji received counseling and training on how to control his quirk; after that, Shinji never really found the need to use it anymore since he eventually accepted his parents’ plans for him. He grouped up with the normies and continued his life as such. His life became monotonous and repetitive, with most of his daily activities being composed of books, home tutors, and the occasional sports here and there. However, during his final year in middle school, when asked what their plans were when they graduated, three out of his twenty four classmates said that they wanted to be heroes. Despite the judgmental laughter and snarky comments, Shinji followed them and proclaimed his ambition of becoming a professional hero as well. In the year he had to prepare and catch up, it was then where his ambition and passion to become a hero was rekindled.
Frozen Shoulder: Through his fists, Shinji can freeze whatever he punches. Considered as mutations secondary to his quirk include his cold skin and cool minty menthol-like breath.
Likes: Shinji enjoys trivia and healthy arguments. Challenges and casual conversation are cool to. He always welcomes both new faces and experiences. He isn’t what you’d call outright competitive, but he does like winning, but also losing as well. Along with his preference for bright colors, he’s a fan of minimalism and often keeps things neat and tidy.
Dislikes: Shinji dislikes long periods of unnecessary silence or inactivity. He's not fond of those who do not think before they act and those who do not weigh the pros and cons of situations. If not affected, he cares little for the decisions made by others, he just requires them to have reasons behind their actions. He tries to avoid impracticality and when in groups, he finds the lack of leadership quite annoying.
Fears: At present, Shinji doesn't really fear anything. He's conditioned himself to face criminals, villains, public scrutiny, and even failure.
"Fashion and Heroism are two sides of the same coin. You can't have one without the other, I say!"
Hattori Himōri 服部 紐織り
16 - 13th of January
Height: 5' 2"
Weight: 185 lbs
While in public, Himōri wears baggy clothing that covers most of her body, mostly long sleeve shirts and pants, with a sweater or a jacket on top of it. In the company of friends, however, Himōri reveals the depths of her wardrobe, donning clothes that reflect the currently popular fashion trends modified to cater to her body type.
In general, she prefers lighter colors over darker ones, specifically earthy colors. That being said, you'll never catch her dead wearing anything neon pink, though she never explains why exactly that is. During the winter seasons is the only time she'll ever sport darker colors, but even then it will probably be a shade of brown.
If it wasn't for her weight, Himōri would probably be seen as just an ordinary girl with no real stand out features. But because of it, she draws attention, and it's usually not the pleasant kind.
The first to start and the last to leave, Himōri is the type of person who never leaves a job unfinished, doing what needs to be done, and sometimes even more than what is asked of her. A good work ethic is something that had been drilled into her since the day she picked up a needle for the first time, and the countless hours she'd worked at her mother's shop have trained her to do whatever job she's assigned thoroughly.
If there's anything that you can count on Himōri for, it's the strength of her word. A promise given by Himōri will always be kept to the best of her ability. If it's ever broken, she's sure to bawl longer than the promisee is able to hold a grudge. It's a bit scary, really, to what lengths she's willing to go to keep her word, a value Himōri believes is necessary to become a person she can be proud of.
Any time she places her investment into anything, she'll always step up to show how much she's willing to show how much she cares, never allowing herself to be turned away by the opposition as she stands up for what she believes in. While it's an admirable trait to have, it's sometimes a double-edged sword when it's coaxed to life for the wrong reasons, becoming more of a detriment in some cases than it is a positive trait.
A good idea should always be acted upon as soon as you think of it. It's this mindset that fuels Himōri's frequency to act on her own accord, changing plans on a dime and working off of even the smallest of chances to reach her goals. It causes her to act rashly and without much prior thought when her emotions run high, and can very well get herself and others into danger because of her reckless actions.
Thinking about her own safety was never a priority for Himōri. At a time when she didn't know the difference between her hands and her feet, she'd given into every selfish thought that came into her mind. But after she became a person that her mother was forced to rely on, she never really had a chance to think about what she wants, what she needs, rather than the needs of others. Even with her newfound independence, she still hasn't shaken away this mindset, instinctively putting others before her own wellbeing.
Born to a Quirkless tailor mother and a Thread Manipulation Quirk father, it came as no surprise to anyone that Himōri’s life would be intrinsically tied to clothing. Even at a young age, Himōri had already been taught how to sow and weave, helping her mother in small amounts at the shop while her father worked as a small-time businessman. She was always entranced by her father’s Quirk, his threads dancing before her eyes as they morph into animals and various shapes to entertain her before he would put her to bed. It was a normal, simple life, up until her father got caught up in a protest from Anti-Quirk extremists and lost his life during the riot along with a few others before the police could rein in the situation.
With only her single mother supporting the family, Himōri was forced to cope with her father’s death alone at the tender age of six while her mother worked furiously to keep them afloat. Over time, the small amount of time Himōri spent to help her mother increased, from minutes to hours to any moment awake she wasn’t at school. By the time she turned eight, Himōri was essentially her mother’s employee, working hours before and after school with no time for breaks in between. Despite her circumstances, Himōri never asked her mother why she would have to work at the shop while other children played at the park, never brought up that her circle of friends had begun to leave her while she was stuck inside repairing a customer’s clothes. She merely trusted in the last member of the family she had, supporting her still-grieving mother while ignoring the grief in her own heart.
It only became worse when her Quirk awakened itself, her mother horrified by the seemingly empty bed she found that morning, only to realize that the curled-up ball of what she thought was a blanket was a Himōri-shaped silk figure. When the misunderstanding was resolved, the family immediately made plans to move, fearing a similar incident of what happened to Himōri’s father could occur should they stay any longer. Even while her mother was frantically preparing for the relocation, Himōri would find herself playing with her newfound powers, reminiscing a time when it was someone else who would show her the wonder of a Quirk. It was only luck that brought them to the city that would eventually construct the UA, and by the time Himōri had reached high school age, she wished to enroll there.
Fearing for her Himōri’s safety, her mother refused, and for a time they were conflicted with one another. For a year, Himōri refused to enroll in another high school, spending her days as a full-time employee at her mother’s shop instead. The woman was surprised, thinking that her daughter was truly taking up the mantle of becoming her successor. It was only when the next school year began that the mother realized what her daughter was trying to do. She would have never let her daughter work for free, so she’d been giving Himōri spending money at the same rate as an actual employee. What she never realized is that Himōri had been saving her money ever since her first paycheck and that she’d saved enough to enroll herself into UA. Their last day together in the same household started with a fight but ended with tearful goodbyes as Himōri set off to become a student at the Quirk-centered UA, with the goal of becoming a person with the strength to keep a family from being forcefully torn apart like hers was.
Short Quirk explanation:
[Silk Weave] - Himōri can transform her body into silk, and manipulate said silk easily with but a thought.
Secretly loves insects, though she'll never let anyone know.
She owns a bonsai tree that she's been taking care of for the past four years. She used to have other plants, but for some reason, she couldn't take care of them as well as her bonsai, so they all died out.
"Let's turn up the heat. All the way to the top!" ... "Er... I can fix that."
— Hanazawa Lacara
15 June 24
50% African American 50% Japanese
Lacara is actually very big for a young lady with Japanese blood in her, standing at an impressive 175cm (5' 9") and weighing in at a solid 67kg (147lbs). She has quite the sporty bod to her as well, with a BWH ratio of 19-15-20 if measured in inches and 48-38-51 if measured in centimeters. Her most distinguishing features are her blonde hair which she ties into twintails, in combination with her dark skin. When not in her uniform, she'll be in her top-notch designer clothes that she picked out from her most recent shopping spree... assuming they're still in tact, that is. She does try to keep up with the latest fashion, but since "the latest fashion" changes so often, all she really achieves through the attempt is fill her wardrobe to the brink when she already has way too damn many clothes to begin with. Lacara is fairly tame with her skirts, but she'll often try to buy 20 or more of the exact same styled top in the exact same color at the exact same shop, just so she can guarantee to herself that not all of them will be ruined by her own quirk.
Take one look at Lacara and you can tell that she's a very lively person. She's a very happy and chipper girl most of the time, who just simply wants to have fun with her life. Make long lasting friends. Spend the day out that she'll never forget. That sort of thing. Of course, Lacara does have her preferences but, considering she's not all that picky, she'll quite happily take what she can get. All she asks is that her day not be ruined by one lousily arbitrary incident that mars the rest of her experience.
Unfortunately for Lacara, a lot of time said incidents are her own damn fault. She's vulnerable to some of the most extreme mood swings out there, and can go from happy to sad to angry to timid to jealous and then back to happy all in the manner of seconds. This is what makes Lacara's quirk dangerously volatile, and the only surefire way to keep it under control is to ensure that she stays calm at all times. This is a tall order on its own however, as Lacara is worryingly easy to provoke when she's in a particularly foul mood... and even when she's not in some cases. Still, Lacara's not the type that would intentionally get into trouble, and even if she does get into trouble, it just goes to show that luck is not always on her side. With a little faith, she'll make it through UA without much fuss.
Hanazawa Lacara was one of the lucky ones. Both of her parents had their very own quirks; her father Fedarius could turn any part of his body into solid rock on a whim, and her mother Yatsumi had a touch that got hotter and hotter the longer she maintained contact. They were the perfect match for each other, and Lacara's birth was the unifying factor for the perfect marriage... even if it did almost ruin it. As he was the one with the most control over his quirk, Fedarius was the one to go out in the societal world and provide for the family, while she herself stayed home and out of sight, being home-schooled by Yatsumi. There were a few bumps and upsets along the road, with a few items of furniture having to be replaced thanks entirely to Lacara's temper tantrums, but the young lava-spewing girl lived a mostly happy life. However, one incident in particular drove Lacara and Yatsumi out of Detroit where they were living.
A large-scale protest made to abolish all the quirk users from the Detroit community had got out of hand, and both Lacara and Yatsumi got caught in the middle of the resulting riot. Both of them were badly beaten at the end of it, and both were led to tears. There was only one thing Yatsumi could think to do to escape. She dreaded the thought of it, what with no family she could reliably turn to, but she decided she'd have to return to Japan and take Lacara with her to start a new life. Fedarius was disheartened by the decision but, considering what he heard, he understood. He kept going with the basketball career that he had established for himself, but still maintains a long-distance relationship with Yatsumi, and sends a large enough portion of his earnings to support Yatsumi and Lacara. But now it's up to Lacara to adjust to life in Japan, and her successful enrollment into UA will be just the beginning...
Whenever she feels any emotion that would make her want to scream (excitement, horror, anger, shock, etc.), lava will be discharged from somewhere on Lacara's body. The known areas where lava can be projected include the top, back and sides of her head, the back and sides of her neck, her back and lower chest, her shoulders and her arms, hands and fingers.
Lacara's biggest fear is losing control of her quirk completely. Her quirk has always been a volatile one, and it has only gotten worse after initiating puberty. As such, she'll often avoid crowds of people just to be safe, regardless of the event they may have gathered to.
Tidbits of Trivia:
Due to being well aware that the Japanese have a hard time pronouncing the letter "l" correctly, Lacara has gotten used to her first name being pronounced as Rakara instead. She absolutely hated it at first, but now she no longer minds.
Lacara's favorite food is a nice, big, meaty rare steak. She doesn't mind how rare it is; she even serves herself a blue steak if she's feeling lazy. Just so long as it isn't "well-done", since she actually considers it to be overcooked... which she finds disgusting.
Much of Lacara's family wealth comes from her father, who has a career in the United States as a professional basketball player. Funnily enough, it is also where she gets her height advantage over most of the Japanese population.
Her tolerance for heat is unsurprising given her genetic make-up, but what is surprising about Lacara is her tolerance for the cold. She could strip down to nothing and go outside on a cold frosty morning if she wanted to, and her body wouldn't even show the slightest shiver. A lot of this comes down the lava inside Lacara's body keeping it warm, making her invulnerable to hypothermia.
Another genuine surprise from Lacara is her sheer metabolism. She can put away well over 5000 calories of food in one sitting, and not even gain a significant increase in weight from repeatedly eating so much. It's still not impossible for her to gain weight despite this however, which is a concern for her since she feels heavy enough as it is.
Fashion Sense: Nadeshiko prefers to wear clothing that covers as much of her body as possible. Long-sleeved shirts, large sweaters and over-sized hoodies make up the majority of upper body's coverings. The same goes for her legs, boasting an impressive array of jeans and leggings for the days she is bold enough to wear a skirt. Her taste in colors ironically skews towards the dark, in the vain belief they make her harder to notice despite contrasting against her "skin".
Distinguishing Features: As a result of her Quirk, the entirety of Nadeshiko's body is a glossy, pink gelatinous substance.
Nadeshiko is a somber, melancholic girl with deep seated feelings of self-loathing. Years of torment at the hands of her peers have stomped upon what little hope she has for herself or a happy future, and instilled an overwhelming sense of apathy in her. Her inability to find merit in herself leads her down the path of insecurity, and causes her to doubt herself even at the best of times, for she finds little of worth when looking inwards. Praise, while foreign to her, is something she craves. The validation provided by others acknowledging her merits embarrasses her greatly, but it is one of the few bright things she cherishes, even if her lack of self-esteem and cynicism often causes her doubt its authenticity. While bereft of friends and holding a strong tendency to isolate herself, Nadeshiko proves to be fiercely loyal to those few individuals who look past her depressing exterior to appreciate the gentle nature that lay beneath.
It was not by illustrious lineage that saw Nadeshiko spawned into the circumstances that would haunt her for the rest of her days. Born to a simple salaryman and his wife in the humble city of Ōtsu, the young girl was marked a pariah from the moment the doctors pulled her from the womb; a Quirk user, and one whose unfortunate condition had manifested quite visibly at birth. Chance had condemned her and by extension the burgeoning Akizawa family to years of hardships, though the gelatinous youth would not feel them for the first few years of her life, to the credit of her parents. Perhaps it would have been more merciful if she had. Isolated from play dates and daycare, her progenitors sought to shield the precocious youth from the horrors nightly news projected into their living room long after their daughter had gone to sleep. Perhaps they had meant to protect themselves as well, to push the weight off from their shoulders for as long as possible, and pretend that everything would be okay, that their child was not a freak.
It did not work. For time moved, uncaring as always, forward, and Nadeshiko was forced to confront the painful reality her guardians had tried to dance around when she entered school at the tender age of five. Ill-prepared for the stigmatization that followed, the poor sweet girl was confounded by the way her peers would ignore her. How her teachers would shoot wary glances at her. How they would whisper when they thought she couldn't hear. How daddy stopped smiling as much when he got home from work, and how tired her mom looked all the time. She didn't understand why, at first. But fate, having decided that hers would be a path rife with suffering, saw fit to teach her why. Every year, the silent treatment got a little less silent. The wary glances turned to disdainful glares. The whispers got louder, and crueler, and more numerous. Dad came home a little later each night, as if he didn't want to face the reality waiting for him outside the office, and mom would take little Nadeshiko in her arms and apologize with tears staining her cheeks more and more often.
It made her wish she could still not understand. But she did, she quickly caught onto why the kids at school would call her names, steal her things, jam pencils and rocks and who knew what else into her gooey flesh when they thought she wasn't looking. She wasn't just a little different. She was entirely different. A freak of nature, monstrous, untrustworthy, unfit for society. Like the bad, bad men on the nightly news that her mother all but gave up on stopping her from watching. She deserved it, Nadeshiko had come to accept, even if her Quirk was no fault of her own. Perhaps it was punishment for deeds done in a past life. Perhaps mom was right to apologize to her for birthing her the way she was. It didn't much matter. Nothing did. In the place of shock, anger, even despair at the face of her treatment, apathy took root.
Nadeshiko marched through the days, accepting what fate had deigned to bestow upon her. As she worked her way through grades, she found others like her. People with Quirks too, though never one so visible as hers. Some were like her, content to be victimized. Some lashed out, fighting back with a courage that Nadeshiko lacked, though whether she pitied them for railing against destiny or admired them for having a backbone she never did, the goo girl did not know. Her hopes for a life of normalcy and acceptance had been dashed a dozen times over, nothing more than fond daydreams to whittle away the waking hours. Left to her own devices, there was little doubt that the Mutant would've accepted her place at society's bottom and scraped out a meager living when the comfortable confines of schooling ended and her parents were ready to throw her out like society had been pressuring them to do since the day she was born.
Fate, being a cruel force, refused to give her that certainty. When middle school came to a close and the preparations for high school exams began, pamphlets arrived at her humble home. A hero program, they spoke of, funded by the government in an initiative to fight back against the tides of an ever growing Quirk-based crime wave. Applicants would be shuttled off to a campus near Tokyo, drilled in the usage of the abilities, and given casus belli to rein in their villainous counterparts upon graduation. The prospect was not exciting. But, for the first time in a long time, she caught glimmers of hope on the faces of those who had brought her into the world. A new start, they said, someplace where she could try and make friends with people just like her. Cynical as she was, she had almost thought they looked forward to getting rid of her. But, weak as she was, Nadeshiko could not bear the thought of disappointing them more than she already had.
Forms were filled, applications sent in, and by the time the cherry blossoms that resembled her so well began to fall, Nadeshiko was packed up and on a train to Musutafu, and to her own heroic academia.
Short Quirk explanation: Nadeshiko’s Quirk, aptly named Gelatinany, is a Mutation-type that has converted her entire body into a malleable, semi-elastic gel.
"So, this is the freak-show circus, huh? Well, should be fun if nothing else. . ." — Your character
15 - "You tell me. . . but I figure sometime in April?"
Fashion Sense:Seo tends to dress in layers. Form-fitting long sleeves under baggy and ripped graphic T-shirts, often with a thick jacket over it depending on the weather. Pants tend to be either slightly torn-up jeans or sturdy work pants with a lot of pockets, usually filled with some sort of snack food.
Distinguishing Features:Aside from being a bit pale, Seo doesn't really have anything about him that makes him a standout in a crowd.
Seo tries to be a quiet kid, usually keeping to himself with a book of some kind. He's not the type to try and make friends(or even conversation if he can help it), but will often draw attention to himself through his inability to keep his opinions to himself. No matter what the situation or how much trouble it's likely to get him in, Seo will snark anyone and everyone he feels deserves it at any given moment that he isn't reading or sleeping. To this end, he has become rather observant and perceptive over the years, always looking for some flaw or shortcoming to point out on any person he finds himself facing against at any given time.
Despite being an anti-social shit and borderline delinquent, Seo does have a few good points. While there are many cases where he claims to not care for people or that he finds the idea of being a hero for people who'd sooner see him locked in a cage to be nothing but a pipe dream, many of the times where he got into trouble for fights is by picking them with bullies that were harassing fellow students at any of his schools. He also proves to be a rather good student when he attends his classes, consistently getting passing marks on all his exams despite often skipping classes entirely, as well as having to constantly switch schools due to being ferried to different foster families. Plus, he's a cat person, and how bad can someone be if cats like them.
Seo is an orphan and has been in the system since he was 3. His parents, either unable or unwilling to deal with him after his quirk had developed, dropped him off at an orphanage in Tokyo, neither even looking in his direction as they left. It would take another 5 years before the fact that he had been abandoned really sunk in for Seo, making his initial time very difficult as he took to acting out and doing everything he could to make any family that took him into to send him back. Often, it didn't take much more than a few lash outs with his quirk to achieve that effect.
As a result, during his years in the Tokyo orphanage system, he drifted in and out of families with rapidity. His reputation grew worse and worse, making the families willing to even take a chance on him when he mellowed out few and far between, and his quirk serving to isolate him from many of his fellows in the orphanage, even those who also possessed quirks of their own.
School was hardly any better, his status as an orphan and a quirk user already set him apart from the majority of other students, creating a feeling of loneliness that only grew stronger once the details of what his ability actually did came to light. Early years of attempting to make friends often ended in misunderstandings and disaster, and over time, the pain of isolation dulled into the dull throb of apathy. Once he came into his teens, he came to embrace that this was just his lot in life, no matter what he did. And so he embraced the role he had been given, doing his best to antagonize anyone and everyone he met, to take on the mantle of the villain that he was often labeled into. He got into fights, he skipped class, engaged in casual vandalism, ran away from home after home, and seemed as if he was trying his hardest to send his future into a nosedive no matter what.
However, luckily for him, he had a person watching him that saw through his charade of villainy. He saw Seo for the hurt, scared kid that he was, lashing out the only way he knew how while also working to help others anyway It was this hero that pushed for Seo to enter the program, despite the reservations of those looking over his records. He was convinced that the kid wasn't bad, just in need of a guiding hand to lead him down the right path and that he deserved the chance to prove that at the very least. it took some doing, but eventually, Seo was notified of the transfer to this new school. To him, it doesn't seem like much. Just another school to add to the list, just one that had a higher number of freaks like himself. Still, when reading the reasoning for his acceptance. . . he couldn't help but feel a slight pang of warmth, no matter how much he tried to tell himself otherwise.
Short Quirk explanation: Sanguine Surgeon- Seo has the ability to manipulate his blood in a variety of ways, both to duel his foes with precise strikes or to help stabilize and heal his allies. That said, he constantly has to be careful how much he uses his ability less he suffer from the dangers of rapid blood loss.
Rookie med student- Seo has taken a great interest in the medical field throughout his life, at one point hoping to be a doctor before his current state of mind developed. Is actually pretty smart, just doesn't apply himself Has a solid collection of books and stories, mostly those of the sci-fi persuasion. Isn't a fan of anime or manga, as he finds them to be much too tropey.

"Don't waste my energy, or you won't get any more." — Genki Nyoko
15 - August 6th
Height: 5’6” Weight: 135 Ibs Fashion Sense: Nyoko is athletic, but doesn’t typically wear the clothing that an athlete might. She dislikes wearing clothes that feel heavy like sweatpants or jeans, and finds such clothing items to have little aesthetic value. Instead, she gravitates towards more fashionable clothing that she can still freely move around. As such, she prefers to wear things like rompers or high waisted shorts. Nyoko can also be seen wearing skirts and dresses, but does so rarely and will wear spandex shorts underneath them. Distinguishing Features: Eyes are a physical indicator of Nyoko’s Quirk use. While her ability is in use, a ring of light circles the iris of her eye with a vertical line at the top. The symbol is uncanny in its similarity to a power symbol found on electronics. The light ranges in color to represent the amount of energy that Nyoko has available to her. Green signifies that her energy levels are maxed out while yellow suggests that her energy is at a more neutral level. When the light becomes red, Nyoko has likely pushed the limits with the amount of energy she is able to expend at that time.
Nyoko’s temperament is often indicative of her Quirk with frequent fluctuations in energy levels. Brimming with kinetic energy usually yields a more sprightly and unrestrained disposition. However, her upbeat nature can quickly become overwhelming after absorbing too much energy. With her Quirk, she is rarely in a state of being calm. Typically, Nyoko falls on the more active end of the spectrum. Sometimes her Quirk puts her energy levels into a deficit when utilizing her ability through expending energy or transfering that energy to other people. When this happens, Nyoko’s mood becomes more negative, often resulting in a somber or easily agitated attitude. Despite her past, she is incredibly proud of the fact that she is lucky enough to possess one. However, her past experiences have lead her with little confidence elsewhere. She expresses this through wearing clothing that she finds visually pleasing, even if it isn’t practical with the athletic nature of her Quirk. Nyoko’s lack of confidence also extends to her relationships with other people, which causes her to form emotional attachments easily. With complicated feelings about love and relating to other people, she develops crushes for simple reasons. That being said, her crushes fade easily as well.
Nyoko refrains from talking about her family, and is likely to dodge the subject. She often finds ways to give vague non-answers that reveal as little information as possible. She hates lying, but the truth isn’t something that she’s willing to publicize. When it comes to her Quirk, she finds herself bending the rules in order to prove herself. Although she has no aspirations of becoming a hero, her ultimate goal is to remove the negative connotations associated with Quirks so that it will no longer be stigmatized by others.
Being a first generation Quirk user is something Nyoko views as a double edged sword. She often feels resentful about the fact that her family wasn’t more accepting of something she views as a gift. A lack of training and understanding has made it difficult for her to gain much experience with her Quirk, leaving her ability in a very raw state.
Short Quirk explanation: Nyoko’s Quirk is based on the use of kinetic energy with her body acting as a vessel that stores this type of energy. Using the pads of her fingers, she is able to absorb energy from another person. Touching them also allows her to transfer energy to another person. In addition to the ebb and flow of energy, Nyoko is also able to translate stored energy into momentum.
"Pa-pada pa pam~ Emi has arrived!~" — Emi Onsei, with her megaphone blasting at max
15 | 25 May
Full fledged Japanese
Height: "5.4! Wow so tall!"
Weight: "100 LBS! Wow so light!"
Fashion Sense: Emi wears short light colored dresses in her free time, usually with a small purse. Her socks always come over her knees and the color is usually black or white. For going into town or the likes she likes to wear darker dresses, the lolita kind. Her favorite accessories for her outfits are toupets and ribbons.
Distinguishing Features: "Distinguishing features you say! I got two distinguished features for you hehe! One is my beautiful hair style and the other one is my neck! See, my neck is slightly bulged like I swallowed a whole oval toy block haha! It totally didn't get stuck there when I was a child... got it?~"
Emi is generally know as loud and energetic, a girly girl who is into the latest fashions and trends. Her free time goes either into making clothes or social media. The gods(liferusher) gave this hyperactive girl the voice of a beautiful angel that booms over the horizon. This voice is used to full extent as she generally talks way too loud to others with her cheerful personality. Emi likes to joke around a lot and is slow to get the gist of stopping. She has a very sweet and soft side that doesn't take criticism too much. She usually gets somewhat quiet when she isn't comfortable with something.
Emi was born from two quirkless parents. The rest of her family neither had quirks making Emi the one and only. It was an unlucky coincidence that she was the only one having ended up that way. Her family was fine with most of it as long as she controlled her volume, Emi herself couldn't do anything about it. She thought of it as horrible to have such a thing in your body. With the slightest raise of her whisper voice it would already be too loud for anyone else to listen to. Her parents weren't able to handle her in the end. It came down to punishment and measurements to keep her quiet. Emi understood and went with it mostly despite being quite hurt by it. It was a way to grow herself, grow into a proper lady that had a normal voice.
Emi went insane, she had to talk. That is why she ran away from home. Deep into the city, over a fence right into a construction site. When she reached the top of the building she contemplated a little before her mouth opened wide.
The neighborhood was woken up in the middle of the night at the girl her outburst. For the first time she screamed and yelled as loud as she could. Her voice echoing over the city. All the pent up frustration got out, breaking glass, scaring birds away. Her ears bleed in pain, but it felt good. She was able to let it all out finally. She smiled and laughed, there was a heavy buzz in her ears but she couldn't care less.
After that day she decided, she shouldn't live by her parents their rules. Her voice was made this way so she had to use it this way. Emi went into her rebel fase and went into a band to vent her pent up frustration out. It would help the world get used to quirks as well when you show them in public. She found out about this new school for people with quirks as well and decided to go there after her graduation. She left her parents home completely with their consent trying to better herself.
Short Quirk explanation: Emi her quirk is a mutant type quirk. Her neck is a megaphone that enhances her voice. She can make it louder or softer and direct it to specific locations. Her voice sounds like she is always talking to a megaphone.
In depth Quirk Details***: Her megaphone is able to make loud sounds to stun opponents. She is able to direct it specifically to areas around her opponent to make it appear sound comes from any other side. Her weakness is ear protection from other people or in the sea or underground.
Put anything else you'd like in here, but be sure to include what is already listed.
