Rei Alfonsi PugliesiAge
"Wish word? Uhm, cognitive, y- yeah I want to be Cognitive."Personality
Rei has a sarcastic air about him, bordering sardonic at times. The inflection and intonation of his voice tend to be biting and overbearing. Despite this he means well, or atleast likes to believe so. Due to his limited social experience, he has a hard time with the intricacies of proper human interaction finding it difficult to read body language despite his attempts, usually leaving the other uncomfortable and looking for an exit. Those who can stand his aura quickly bonds with Rei easily and due to his rather small circle of friends, he tends to 'latch' on and cherish them in his own way.Appearance
Another, arguably more important, facet of his personality is his inability to deny his curiosity- almost childlike in nature. He may take awhile to fully comprehend a concept- theory, a gadget, or similar, but once it 'clicks' in his head he gets unnaturally good at applying or using said concept. He fully obsesses and immerses himself in the object of his attention, usually to his detriment- with his unhealthy habits, like forgoing eating, sleeping, and leisure, rearing their heads. He stays like this until he feels that he has completely satiated his interest. On the other hand, he finds it difficult to get into things he doesn't find interesting- it's like pulling teeth to get him to do an activity he has dismissed. As such, he did the bare minimum to not fail classes he had no interest in, making him more even more 'invisible' in the eyes of his peers and teachers.
Being half Japanese and half Italian has granted Rei confused looks. Standing at the odd height of 5'9" with light dirt brown hair. It doesn't help that he stands slightly taller than the national average in Japan, he somewhat resembles them but is different enough to be marked as a 'Gaijin' by his peers in university.Talents

Rei was born in Puglia, Italy. His father's side was Italian, their family spent alot of time moving back and forth in Italy visiting family from all over. During this period he explored the countryside of Italy with his cousins when he was able, fostering his childlike curiosity. Before starting schooling his family abruptly moved to Japan at the insistence of his mother's family. It was a difficult change of pace, but like all things, Rei got used to it.Equipment
Despite being ostracized basically his whole school life, Rei seemed entirely indifferent to their treatment. More accurately however was that he never actually noticed being purposefully shunned by them. The more popular cliques choose to not acknowledge his presence at all, while the less popular did not want to associate themselves with a 'hāfu' (half), partly because of his personality and the rest because of his heritage. His peers left him to his own devices, he buried himself in tasks that interested him.
He found that he had a penchant for comprehension- during the second year of Kyoto Institute of Technology he won first place at one of their annual events, earning ire of some of the student body who felt that an outsider winning a prize was disgraceful. This, coupled with his unlikeable character, further pushed him into further into his isolationism. He was able to count all his friends on one hand.
He has little recollection of his 'death' but having woken up in Rengoku, despite the few friends he left behind, has filled him with unbridled curiosity once more.
