D A I K I
Daiki appears and acts bigger than he actually is, Daiki Hanamura stands at a measly 156 cm (Or about 5'1") and weighing a surprising 53 kg (about 116 pounds), he is surprisingly fit and athletic for his age and size. The only odd thing about Daiki physically is his cat-like tail and his yellow eyes. When he is not in his school uniform or in his hero outfit he has a rather normal sense of fashion, often wearing jogging pants, a sweater (with cat ears sewed on), and running shoes. He knows how to sew and make his own clothes so if he wants to wear anything different he just makes it himself.Characterization
Daiki has a cheerful, outgoing, and yet somewhat passive personality, which is normal for a young hero like him but there it is. He is a shameless flirt and flirts with damn near anybody who gives him the time of day. Daiki has a tendency to cry and get upset if something doesn’t go his way or if somebody rejects him, he is very emotional and is a crybaby, which doesn’t mix well, he cries at every intense emotion.Personal History
He is also apprehensive to engage in combat and prefers to use underhanded and sneaky manners of dealing with foes preferring to just mess with them than engage or defeat them in direct combat. But for his seemingly goofy and lighthearted nature, he is still a Pro-hero srudent who has gotten as far as he did by tricking stronger opponents and anybody who gets in his way to become a hero. He is a very smart person who has tricked and squirm up his way into Ishin Academy and using his persona as a “childish crybaby” to his advantage. He is very manipulative and scheming, but not foolhardy or evil, just dishonest, really. He is a compulsive liar.
Due to his compulsive lying, he changes his personality very slightly to adjust to each person he is talking to. He adds and drops traits like a hot potato to get to people's good graces or to get under people's skin. He is two-faced. No two people know the same Daiki. Which is why he prefers to talk to people in larger groups or by themselves. No talking to pairs for this guy! But for all of Daiki's faults he really does want to become a better person and has a wish to save and protect people. Especially people like him. But he doesn't know how to go about doing it which is why he wants to go to Ishin Acadmey hoping they can "fix" him.
Daiki doesn't know his parents. As long as he could remember he was always in the foster care system down in Osaka. Even at a very young age Daiki had to help around his foster homes no matter how brief he stayed there. He often moved twice a year for six years. Daiki was a good kid all things considering, he never bullied others, argued, or even cause much trouble at all at both kindergarten and at his foster home. And when his quirk mundanely activated during a game of hide and seek, it didn't cause a huge difference in the young Daiki's life. While he was never abused or had his dreams crushed in an overt way, I mean, how could a dream be crushed if you don't have one? Daiki for most of his childhood was just too busy caring for others to focus on himself. Character Development & Conceptualization
But that changed one day. Daiki learned to lie in elementary school and he was good at it. Daiki from then on lied about everything he could get away, he learned quickly the best lies to tell are the huge ones that people wouldn't expect to lie about, while little mundane lies are often caught and killed before they could be anything huge. Over the years Daiki became better and better at lying until he's tricked by his own lies at times. Daiki was a professional liar by the time he went to middle school. But it was also at this time he finally got a dream for himself.
He wants to become a pro-hero. Like everything else in his life at this point, this dream was born from a lie. He only said he wanted to become a Pro-hero because everybody else wanted to and he would be the weirdo if he didn't agree. So he lied and lied about becoming a Pro-hero who would save people with his [CatScan] Quirk, even though he didn't really wanted to at that point. But after some time thinking and keeping the lie alive he couldn't help but fall in love with the idea of being a Pro-hero. It took him longer to fall for the dazzle of pro-heroing but he did. After 11 years. Daiki knows if he wants to become a Pro-hero he needs to go to a Hero school and he had one in mind. But he needed to train hard and hone his quirk. And it was lucky for Daiki that lying for most of your life teaches you certain skills and the know how to manipulate others which is the only way he can make use of his quirk at this time. His greatest strength with his quirks is tactics and he aims to take full advantage of that.
For the next three years Daiki trained his quirk, his body, and mind as much as he could, as he lacks an offensively powerful quirk but his quirk is still extremely useful and powerful in an urban setting. Daiki knows he has to work twice as hard as most people to get accepted into Ishin academy with his quirk but he's determined to get in!
My vision for Daiki's growth as a character is that he start out as an extremely flawed character for pretty shallow reasons but I want him to become a good person and an excellent Hero because of good and deep reasons. I want him to improve.
Also due to his constant lying and generally being two-faced I am aiming for him to learn that his constant lying and avoiding the truth is more harmful than it does good to him. Since to him lying has become second nature and a comfort to him and I want him out of his comfort zone.
And finally I want him to learn that Ishin cannot simply "Fix" him without him playing an active, honest role in it. Currently, he assumes they will fix him magically which is impossible without his input. I want Daiki to learn to open up to others and let them help him.
Abilities & Talents
Daiki has a Quirk called [Catscan], and it is a powerful quirk when used properly. When he activates his quirk his eyes become stilted like that of a cat and glow a pale yellow. [CatScan] Allow Daiki to scan (Think a mix of the byakugan and eagle vision in Assassin Creed) the immediate area of 55 m (or 180 feet), this scanning process gives Daiki information about his current location's layout and the location and distance of objects of interest (I.E People or large items) from where he's standing, he can pinpoint the exact distance by the inch. But now he can only do it for a few minutes at a time before his eyes start to hurt and get a headache from all the information being processed at once. He also can't move or lose focus while scanning at this time without getting dizzy and sick.Other Talents & Attributes
Daiki due to his childhood he knows many homemaking skills, like sewing, Cooking, cleaning, taking care of children, gardening, and basic first aid, which is a mix bag of useful skills in the Pro-hero scene. But useful ones anywhere else.
