- A relatively tall figure at 5'11", Kaito is very clearly from a family that doesn't quite look...normal.
Indigo phosphorescent lines cross his purple, rubbery skin and give off a faint glow that's really only visible in dim lighting or total darkness. Resembling something more akin to a monster than a hero, while his chest is rather muscular with fully developed pectoral and abdominal muscles visually, his limbs are long and lanky because of his quirk, seeming to just be straight with no joint beyond the wrists and ankles. His skin is relatively cool most of the time, and his phosphorescent lines will flare up brighter if he's pissed off enough. his eyes are pure white orbs that seem to have no definable pupil, when in actuality it is just freakishly tiny and lacking any sort of iris. Like, microscopic tiny.
His hair is a white shade that seems to only really grow from the back of his head, giving him a strange "Balding Majestic" haircut. Bizarrely, he actually needs to shave, or else he'll start to grow two long, bizarre tendrils from his upper lip that resemble a catfish's whiskers.

- A strange mixture of muscle compacting, bone manipulation, and elasticity is embodied solely in his limbs,
in the form of his quirk: Over Extend. His quirk has a passive effect on the bone and muscle structure of his arms and legs, causing them to lack a defining middle joint to support them. While this should normally mean his lack of a patella greatly decreases his leg functionality, his unique muscle and bone structure is capable of circumventing the need for the central point of a knee or an elbow. His walk is a bit funky, but is fully functional. This muscle and bone alteration has lead to his limbs becoming very slim and noodle-y, almost resembling tubes when completely straight.
When he "extends" his muscles, his bones will oddly follow through along with his skin and ligaments, creating a unique "Stretching" of appendages that retains the overall strength of his limbs while greatly increasing their range. As his quirk only truly affects his arms and legs and not the actual hands/feet associated with them, those are left completely unaffected by the quirk and unable to extend in any capacity. However, his current maximum limit for stretching his arms out at a completely comfortable distance is about 20 feet. At any point past that, his muscles begin to experience the amount of fatigue one would get from weightlifting, and an extension past 30 feet will almost assure muscle tearing. Beyond extending however, he is also able to coil his snake-like appendages around things, people included to restrain or hold onto them. As such, his quirk is best used for "Restrain and Capture" operations, or switch-hitting from a distance. Its useful for mobility as well, given that he can just stretch his arms out to grab objects and pull himself to them. In the future his capacity for extending his arms may grow, but for now going beyond 20 feet will cause heavy repercussions.

A former delinquent turned wannabe hero, Kaito has been in quite a few scrapes for little reason other than a bad mood and a punchable face being present, and as such comes pre-packaged with hands primed for the catching. His shitty attitude in middle school also lead him to have a bit of a lack of manners in dealing with others, though around his family he seems to put on a whole other persona to keep his parents from worrying about him.
Beyond his boring ability to "punch things kinda good", he's also a decent enough cook, owed mostly to him learning his favorite recipes by heart so that he'd never have to settle for eating stuff he didn't really find appealing. Or to show off. From his time spent helping out at the family's combination Inn and Spa, he's learned basic massage techniques that help to alleviate stress in joints, and overall give you the best damn massage you ever had from a muscle noodle arm. Also he can kinda glow in the dark.

- To try and play a unique archetype for a BNHA rp that I don't see a lot: The freaky looking guy with a bizarre quirk. Tokoyami is one of my favorites, so I want to try and play a similar enough concept with a strange quirk/user, but in a semi-unique way. In addition, I'm a sucker for delinquents making something of themselves in stories, and I don't mind playing the dumbest guy in the room for comedy.
I just want to try and make Kaito believable, and show his growth from wayward teenager into someone who wants to help other people as a hero, and live up to his full potential. That and because the idea of his dumb noodle arms flailing around and slapping someone's shit in amuses me greatly.
