Points for SWORDS
Default App: 10,000 MP

------

Full Name: Ku Xin
(Read in a Chinese manner, it's Xin Ku, 新酷, last name first)

Age: 15

Height and Weight: 5'9'' (175cm), 145lbs.

Gender: Male

Year Level: Year One, Transfer

Weapon: Belt - As the only son to the CEO of a National News Corporation, Ku has been kidnapped, threatened, and harassed several times from an early age. Often finding himself defenseless except with this clothes on his back, Ku grew used to using his belt as a weapon during this time.

Arcana: Chariot
The Chariot represents two things best displayed through Ku - 1) the stubborn drive to win at all costs, and 2) a duality of nature. Ku's persona is a cute chimera with an opposite personality from Ku, suggesting that Ku may be more than just a flirtatious, and often coming across as a masochistic, strength-seeker...Or maybe not.

Arcana Rank: 8

Suit: Swords

Nationality: Chinese

Likes:
-His father
-Strong people
-Fighting to get stronger
-Drawing really bad, but getting better graffiti

Dislikes:
-Nosy people
-Carrying a lot of stuff around.
-Gossip
-Things not on sale

Personality:
-Flirtatious to strong people: Ku admires people as strong or stronger than him and actively pursues them, with hidden intentions, but often with romantic connotations (perhaps unintentionally).

After developing a relationship with Vi, however, his flirtations have significantly decreased, though his admiration for strength has only increased.

-Always ready for a fight: After he finds someone strong, he'll try and fight them to get stronger. If there's a fight underway, you can be sure that Ku is among the first charge. Unfortunately, since he's 15 and still very naive and comparatively weak, him charging headstrong into battles isn't the smartest choice.... He has been getting a lot stronger lately. Thanks to circumstances.

-Impervious to gossip: Drama, dating, politics, etc - After being exposed to rumors, slander, and other fraudulent accusations via National News, Ku's gotten sick of false claims, and tunes out to gossip. If it doesn't involve making him stronger or would impress his father, Ku's probably not interested.


Strengths:
-Positive Attitude
-Resourcefulness
-Protective nature towards close friends and relatives
-Thrifty
-Knows exactly what he wants

Weaknesses:
-His father
-Stubborn Personality
-Selective attention (Warm to strong people, indifferent to others)
-Tunnel vision/Single minded
-Croquettes

History:
Ku is heir to a large News Corporation in China, and holds his father in very high regard - maintaining a good academic record and clean reputation in his private and public life to impress him.

When his father and company were heavily slandered on National News, Ku was dismayed that his father did not fight back against the perpetrators. In order to clear his father’s name, Ku decided to take it upon himself to beat up the other party. When word of this made it onto the News, Ku’s father sent Ku out of the country, to let the rumors die down. However, Ku misinterpreted this act as banishment. Moreover, when he heard his father’s statement on National News,

“No son of mine would be that weak – only the weak resort to doing such an act,”

Ku became incredibly hurt. He followed his father’s orders and transferred to a school in Japan, but misinterpreted his father’s words. He now devotes himself to becoming physically stronger, in hopes to one day regain his reputation in his father’s eyes.

He has reconciled with both his Father and Ling since then, on some issues but not all. Though he's gotten stronger physically, his emotional strength is still very weak, having opened up to certain people.


Trivia:
-When Ku transferred over, they didn't have any school uniform pants his size, so he settled for larger pants. In order for them to not fall off, he uses a belt. In the cases that he uses his belt as a weapon, Ku's pants are at high risk of falling off. The pants fit now, though he still has a penchant for wearing loose pants.
-His Chimera is named thus: ChiChi ('Kiki') is the lion, MeMe ('MeiMei') is the goat, and RaRa ('LaLa') is the snake.
-Kiki is very passive aggressive and sweet, MeiMei is 90% of the time asleep (and 10% really grumpy), and LaLa is the smart one. (They don't talk)

-Don't insult Ku's graffiti art, no matter how bad it is - unless you want to start a fight. He's gotten tougher skin, for some reason.
-Rather than rely solely on bodyguards, his father had Ku take martial arts lessons from a good friend after the first kidnapping. Showing a talent for the art, Ku soon surpassed his class, but always lost to his father, which only fueled his drive to become stronger.
-Ku’s cellphone charm is only half a sword. His father holds the other half.
-Ku's favorite brand of clothing and merchandise is a fictional company called Highland and Kite, or 'HK' as more popularly known. They make pretty much anything...
-The cellphone strap is from Vi.

You know, after going over my own character Lorith's bio (and I noticed that he and Ku are in the same class) I get the feeling that he and Ku would have a love/hate relationship: Ku likes strong people and people to spar with while Lorith is stronger than most people his age and size and he studied kendo and karate in Germany before coming to Kirimori, Ku hates nosy people while Lorith is like Navi from LoZ ("Hey, listen!"), they both have super cute Personas, just stuff like that...
I also have a question!  Can I somehow introduce Ku and Lorith to each other and make them friends - we can do RP or art or whatever you are fine with and maybe do some battle art with them to help get some art challenges out of the way for me - because Lorith has almost no friends (except Daisuke who he met at a blind date during the secret Valentine event) and I want him to build up a strong social link for the next chapter!  I also have some art planned (trying to get back into this and in need of the points) that may feature Ku and the rest of class 1-B and could I have your permission to add him!  Just being careful and wanting to get permission first before drawing again...

Aww, of course Ku and Lorith can meet! :iconsuccessplz: I do most of my rp in Skype, but I'm cool with using notes or google docs too. I'm a pretty slow rp-er, given my current IRL schedule right now, but if you're alright with that, let's see what happens, haha!

Let me know whichever floats your boat and I'll note you so we can chat more! : D

Thanks!  Lorith needs more friends! *sobs* Then again it's my fault for being so inactive here for so long...

I have a Skype account, I've RPed via notes in other groups before, and I know very little about google docs, so it's whatever you're fine with.  
And I can understand IRL getting in the way (I'm RPing with someone on Tumblr and with how busy she is I let her reply whenever she wants) so I'll let you move at your own pace.  
Now just a matter of how these two meet and what happens between them is the next concern..... *thinks on it*

Hehehe~ Ku wouldn't want it any other way. :iconhurrplz: Even if Tsukasa has low stamina, Ku'll probably see Tsukasa as a sparring partner with the potential of also getting stronger, which is fine in his book. It'll also be good for Ku to have someone who will fight with him good-naturedly, especially since he's far from home for the first time and pretty much alone in a new country, hehe and everyone he's fought so far doesn't really tolerate his fighting much, haha.

I promise Tsukasa that Ku is not always an extreme strength-seeking flirt (just for now until character development happens, haha). But he is still pretty maso........;u; *hit*

shinryu05 Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2012
Well, in that case it's good for Ku that Tsukasa is so open-minded and accepting except maybe for the whole "fighting in bed" part, he really needs his sleep. And since he has to "train" with Ku, Tsukasa is going to FINALLY get some exercise outside of kendo, so that might rectify his stamina problem.
And there'll be lots of male bonding, so everyone wins. :iconmegustaplz:

I'm so afraid Ku's going to just scare Aurelia away....xD;;; He's really forward, and will only be interested in fighting strong people as of now. xD; *apologizes to Aurelia beforehand*

I... I could have sworn that I commented on this last night! orz //fail

Anyway, I remember saying that I was actually drawn by his weapon concept and wondered if taking out his belt makes his pants loose in the process so when I saw that trivia saying that that's the case, I was amused. X'D

Anyway, it'd be so cool if I could RP with you *A*

Hey! :D

Haha, yeah...I should design some briefs for him, too, since I'm sure he'll be whipping his belt out as much as he can. xD

Awww, sure! >u<! Your character dislikes men, right? It'd be interesting to see how Ku and Makoto interact, haha. Where would you prefer to rp? Chatroom? Comments? Notes?

Briefs designs. Pfffft. I imagine boxer-type designs now. Briefs with hearts. //shot

And yep. She's been dissing males lately since most people who RP with me use male charas. orz

And I mostly prefer comments and MSN. Although MSN may be tricky since we live in different timezones
