Kaede is a pretty mellow and go-with-the-flow sort of person. Always with a smile on his face, it’s very rare to see him without one. He really isn’t the type to speak out when others are talking, though when he gets the chance, Kaede can strike up a conversation in the blink of an eye and keep it going however long he wants.

When it comes to his graphic designing, once he starts his editing there’s no seeing him come out of his room until it’s finished, unless he needs to go to the bathroom. Eating food is something he must absolutely do, or else he’ll run out of energy and pass out somewhere. The estimation of how many meat buns he eats a day is over 40.

Preferred Activities: Listening to music --- Spending time with his nakama --- Taking long walks --- Playing with his Tamagotchi --- Laying on some random field staring at the clouds and/or stars

Likes: Anime ( specifically: Kuroko no Basuke ) --- K-Pop ( especially SHINee ) --- Referencing anime quotes --- Meat buns --- His laptop
Dislikes: Tight spaces ( he’s claustrophobic) --- Spiders ( arachnophobia ) --- When they run out of meat buns at the bakery --- Being separated from his laptop

It’s unknown as to where Kaede was born, or what date exactly. When he was nearing the age of one, he was abandoned in front of a local orphanage near the country. Such a cliche story, I know right? It made him feel a bit sadden at the fact that his parents didn’t want him, but he knew there must be some reason why. The reason? Ah, that fact is unknown as well.

The real story of happiness starts now. One faithful day when Kaede was around 7 years old, a couple who looked as if they came from the city made their way inside the orphanage. The American woman had announced that he was looking for a child, and her Japanese husband nodded in agreement. This made Kaege happy, seeing how one of his fellow orphaned friends was going to have a home. What he didn’t expect was that he was the one being adopted. Bidding farewell to the people that he knew all his life, literally, he awaits his future home.

Five years passed, and Kaede was living a carefree life with his new parents in the bustling city of Tokyo. He’s made many friends at his new school, along with the teachers and children younger than him. His parent’s first ever gift to him was a red laptop, which he named Tauburn. While exploring the web and the wonderful websites known as Tumblr and Nicovideo, he’s come to love the graphics made and the songs sung that it made him want to make some of his own. Although he flat out sucked at first, the growing adolescent kept trying.

His father admits at the dinner table shortly after that he always wanted to pursue a career in the arts, but never had the talent to. Instead, he went for a career in business, leading him to meet his wife in America. He turns to ask Kaede what he is looking to pursue in the future. Kaede didn’t know what to respond with, in the heat of the moment he blurted out that he wanted something to do with the arts, just like what his father wanted. This made the middle aged man happy, seeing how his son will achieve what he couldn’t.

Kaede’s father died of heart disease a couple of weeks later. Kaede showed off his feminine side, having cried for a few days, but soon picked himself back up. It turns out that the man had a scholarship for Kaede ready already. A scholarship to attend Hoshino Gakuen, a school for the arts. This is it, his chance to reach out and fulfill his father’s dream.

† He can speak both Japanese and English fluently.
----- This is due to the fact that he’d visit America on various occasions.

† Voice: --- 名無し
----- Japanese -…
----- English -…

† Kaede may or may not be a male.
----- The only people who know of his gender are his parents and the children at the orphanage where he used to live.
----- There’s no set reasoning as to why Kaede refers to himself as a male. One of his excuse is that he wanted younger kids to call him “Onii-chan” to make the joke that he was actually a demon.
----- Little kids don’t actually believe this, and points out that Kaede’s more of a “tenshi” than an “oni”.

† His mother was suppose to give birth to a boy, but he died stillborn.
----- This is why his parents traveled so far to adopt Kaede. His eyes looked much like that of his mother.

† Because of his height, kids would usually ask him to play basketball with them.
----- Kaede gratefully accepted the offer of course.
----- This became sort of his sub-skill.

† He is a fan of K-pop ( or pretty much any Korean and foreign music )
----- His favorite bands are BIGBANG and SHINee
----- His favorite songs are 백야 (White Night) and LUCIFER

Arata ( Art ) Takeuchi
First impression --- "We've been neighbors for 10 years, and neither of us even knew! Haha, it's probably because whenever I have a break at school I'm at America."
Haruna Yamada
First impression --- "I met him and Arata-san at the park. They were nice enough to not steal my 3DS when I left it at their bench. I hope we can become friends."
Konomi Endo
First impression --- "She's pretty cute! I'm absolutely sure I won't get any cooties on her, if that's what she's worried about!"
First impression --- "Ah, when I first saw him I thought he was the trickster type (mostly because of his mask haha!) We spent time talking about a zombie apocalypse!"

† Will be updated later on (゚´Д`゚)゚
