Human - OnmyoujiAppearance:
((I'll find a illustrated image in a little bit))
Tall and lanky, Haccho stands in at 6 feet or about 183 cm in height, giving him a bit of height over many Japanese folk. He has a sinewy build and his long dark hair is typically pulled back behind his head. Along with the stubble around his face, Haccho often looks less like an investigator and more like a typical Japanese rocker- and his lazy and easygoing personality does little to assuage those assumptions. In terms of dress, Haccho is fairly set in his own fashion sense, from high end casual to well fitted suits. Personality:
Casually confident, Haccho carries himself with a sort of calm bravado and rarely breaks this character. Outgoing, yet not brash and outspoken, Haccho's generally cheerful and light-hearted disposition is of one who is rather confident in himself and his abilities. While casually boastful of his own abilities, he isn't afraid to acknowledge his own shortcomings, though will often spin it around in a manner that sounds better of him. Though relaxed and lazy, Haccho is competent and appreciably professional, and often interacts quite well with women and children, and will casually flirt with others regularly, though rarely shows any inclination to go any further. A generally good natured man, Haccho is fairly friendly, and talkative, often making sarcastic jokes or face-palm worthy puns even when in the middle of deep shit. Prideful and somewhat cocky, Haccho can be, in short, a bit of an ass- a well meaning ass, but an ass nonetheless. Abilities:
Haccho is an onmyouji of dark affinity, most of his spells and magical talent revolve around shadows and illusions, giving him an edge in subterfuge. From opening doors not meant to be opened to shrouding himself from view or binding suspects with shadow tags, Haccho's magical spells are printed onto specialized paper tags, allowing him to more easily deploy spells without having to take the time to cast spells. Very few of Haccho's abilities are conducive for combat, and primarily provide him with supportive or situational control. Outside of his spell tags, Haccho possesses an innate magical talent, and has the ability to cast simple charms and telekinetically move smaller objects, such as books, pens, wallets, and coins.
- Magical Trait: Shadow Waltz - For brief moments- typically an amount of seconds, Haccho can take on a shadowy visage, allowing him to phase through walls or danger.
While by no means an Olympic athlete, Haccho is no slouch. In good shape for someone his age, Haccho possesses a mental and physical fortitude capable of taking a considerable beating and can hold his own in most situations that are physically taxing, from lifting and moving objects, to chasing down suspects and even fist fights. While not a brawler, Haccho knows his way around a street fight and can be a formidable foe when provoked. Though not a marksman, Haccho is well versed in operating firearms and firearm safety, and can be a decent shot with his sidearm or even a shotgun or rifle.Equipment:
Haccho always carries a handgun with him in either a shoulder holster or a concealed waist holster at his back. The sidearm is a small, compact pistol, often loaded with silver bullets for use against the supernatural. Along with a few additional magazines of ammunition, Haccho carries a small set of ofuda loaded with pre-written spells.Brief Backstory:
Born in the heart of Tokyo, Haccho has spent most of his life used to the urban sprawl of the city. Haccho was born the the oldest of two, the son of a doctor and a 'businessman'. The oldest child in a household whose parents weren't around often, Haccho was quick to assume the role of "secondary man of the house" at a young age, to help his parents take care of the family and house. Their family traced back an old line of Onmyouji, and though their father was fairly skilled with his abilities, he didn't put much effort into teaching his sons, not until both of them began to manifest the magical trait which has been dormant in their family for generations. Only when both brothers began manifesting their abilities, did their father begin to bring them into the family business, and introduced him to various other businesspeople that he dealt with- most notably the yakuza.
As a youth Haccho performed well in school and sports alike, excelling in mathematics as well as athletics, though was often disciplined for disrupting class, fighting and arguing with teachers and students- though few people ever really messed with the Yakuza kids. Despite any disciplinary action Haccho might have faced, he nevertheless graduated with honors, and upon graduating from high school was excepted into Tokyo U, where he planned to business.
Things never exactly go as planned, and after a small dispute landed their family in hot water with the local branch of the yakuza. Forced into exile, Haccho and his younger brother fled to Osaka, where Haccho would eventually join the police force.
Sometime later, Haccho and his brother would find themselves in the small, but growing region of Minizawa, to start up their own investigation agency.
