Alrighty, soooooo...all the character opinions from Kenji's point of view.
Hate for them to be so short, but I'm so tired, pfffffff.Originally Posted by Kenji Mori
He was the man who brought me out of poverty and took me to the US, but how he managed to find me still eludes me. Mr Charles Xavier, even if his name is still difficult to pronounce, has a lot of charm to him and even if I do still love my country, he certainly managed to convince me to go to his institute fairly quickly; of course, I'm not sure whether he did me a favour by bringing me out of Japan or made me look like a coward for leaving my country when it was in dire need of help. Hmm well, I can't blame him for making me feel this way when I know his institute is doing its best to help me control my curse. He seems like a nice man, but who knows what he's hiding under that fašade of his...heh, then again, if it wasn't for him and Jean Grey I wouldn't know of such words like 'fašade' and just be calling it 'shoumen'.
I'm not sure what to think anymore. Maybe I am just being negative, but maybe it's a good thing to be wary around somebody who could be reading my mind as I talk about him. It's been long enough, maybe the man is as honest as he appears.
She's another one who helped me at the very start, but after I got the hang of English she just faded in with the others. Sure, she has these nights where she tries to keep it fun for everyone else and maybe it's my fault for not feeling part of that crowd or too tired to include myself, but she might be cool to hang out with sometimes. She must think I'm an asshole, but I don't mean to be. My other friends seem to enjoy her company, but after those few hiccups earlier in the year I still can't help but wonder if she knows my name or cares to remember it without needing to refer to the register.
This guy worries me, I think it's because he had a strange fascination with my ki and how it worked; then again, even I don't know how I manage to do what I can do. He's a strange man with a strange energy about him, but I admire his strength and perseverance to try and help me and others who encounter problems and illnesses. It doesn't feel as if he's doing it for himself or somebody else's benefit, he just seems to work. Even when my curse is a little bit more unique than the others around here, I'm quite thankful that Hank isn't obsessing over me much. While he is a good teacher and an intelligent man, I can't always understand scientific terms he uses; then again, I don't know if Miss Jean Grey can decipher them for me because they're that complicated at times.
What can I say? She helped me greatly by teaching me English and helping me when the others weren't around, guiding me through the institute and helping me settle in after the disaster. She's a brilliant woman with amazing hair and very kind, but then there was that one day that ruined whatever chance we had to become friends. I don't know what I did, maybe I subconsciously thought of something horrible by accident while she and Mr Xavier explored my memories, but she left the room in a hurry and never to return. I was told later by another student that I made her cry, but maybe they were lying. I still can't help but feel guilty for whatever I did, even through apologies. Man...I feel tired.
Truth be told, this girl's abilities scare me a little. I've been told she can manipulate energy involving motion, 'kinetic' or something. My ki produces a similar energy when I fly which is how I learned of it, but the thought that she might be able to manipulate it makes me wonder if she can manipulate my energy to send me colliding into a wall if I make her mad or upset. She's nice and all, but she's more of a friend to everyone else and a colleague to me. Everybody likes her, she's got impressive abilities but we've never really talked together without everyone there to talk with us together; of course, we might talk about our flying abilities, but that's about it before the guys come in with their competitive natures trying to win her affection over.
I don't know what this guy's problem is with me, first he hated my very soul and then he tries to ignore the fact that it ever happened. He acts big, but I see who he eyes all the time with those red single-shades of his when a certain Miss Grey is around. I don't know about this guy...that Mr Scott Summers. If he thinks I'm going to forget how he treated me so easily, then there's no way I'm going to go easy on him in an one-on-one training session. Hmm well, I shouldn't get so worked up about him, I'm not supposed to get worked up about anything, it's too dangerous. I must keep calm and focused, maybe then he will compliment me and not sour me during sessions. Oh well, Nia seems to like him which surprised me, I don't understand this. I'm still learning new things about Nia everyday and how she can possibly be a part of me, but maybe my tolerance for Scott shows through her and I don't even know it.
She's trying to get me thrown out or something, seeing if I'd end up killing somebody or worse. Why does she push me to my limits? I sometimes can't take it and have to leave the lesson before I explode with rage, but maybe that's her plan as well. Maybe she wants me to be absent all the time and not become top of the class, maybe she's jealous; well, I doubt she's jealous, but I'd still rather jealousy than pure hatred for me. I don't know much else about this girl, but I don't think I want to when she acts so hostile towards me and my cat.
James William Knight
I'm not a loser, I do have friends and James happens to be one of them. I've got to admit, he's not very good at games but he does give me a challenge when I need it sometimes. We hang out, sometimes Christopher hangs out with us and we all compete with each other; of course, I always win. He's a cool guy, so I'm not sure why people sometimes pick on him with me having to rescue him. He was one of my first friends when I was feeling the grip of home sickness at its peak, he managed to pull me out of my room willingly when I just didn't want to leave it. He seems a little obsessed about the stuff that comes from my country, but maybe that's a good thing; I like to have a connection to home, I'll never get back those friends I lost on that terrible day and he helps fill the hole they left behind.
He's weird, but I can handle weird. It's a good weird, we get on well because I'm seen as the foreign stranger while he's seen as the resident weirdo and they always get on well in movies. We'll play console games together or he'll attempt to prank me while I prank him right back, he's just lucky that a lot of pranks from my country are banned in the institute. I do enjoy the fact that he wants to learn more about my culture, mainly my language, all the while James shows interest in the other side of my culture. It creates positive energy to have these two around, but Chris manages to hold me together when that Olivia girl feels determined to try and break me by the seams.
She likes Nia, I guess that's a plus. Even if her mutation worries me in some deep way, it's not going to kill me to talk to her once in a while and let her pet Nia; besides, Nia getting attention certainly makes me feel better. She's probably the only girl I'm not worried about personally, even with that radioactive mutation of her. I guess the biggest worry I hold is since my abilities came after the disaster, maybe radiation had something to do with my curse; then again, my town was a little further north than the radiation area...'was' being the...figurative term. I worry sometimes that I act too quiet around her, maybe I should talk more around her and not let Nia do all the talking for me.
