Name: Akira Sohma
Personality: Akira is a bit of a loner. He often comes off to newcomers as either cold or shy, but really he holds no hard feelings toward them personally, nor is he bashful. He simply isn't social. He spends most of his free time alone, often roaming secluded areas in his zodiac form. He is usually calm and collected. However, he sometimes can't control his anger. This is one reason why he keeps to himself so much. It's something like being bi-polar, the moods come rarely and suddenly, but when he's angry he'll usually take off to avoid hurting anyone. When he is forced to be among others, like in school, he's pretty quiet. He will be polite when interacting, but he doesn't try to make friends with anyone, even though he wants to. In a way, because of his mood disorder, he's afraid of making friends. He feels the more time he spends with others, the higher the chance is that they will get hurt because of his mood swings. If he starts getting close with someone, he feels guilty, as if he is directly putting them in danger.
Other: Akira has a little brother, Toshi. Three years ago, Akira had one of his moods and got angry with his brother. He ended up hurting him pretty badly, and his parents arranged for him to live with a cousin to keep Toshi safe. Akira feels so guilty about what happened, the family doesn't often speak about what happened or even mention Toshi when he's around. He's living with the family psychiatrist and should be having sessions but he refuses to talk about it.
Name: Ryosuki Sohma, Ryo for short
School: Junior, he had to repeat this year and also has some sophomore and freshman classes that he keeps failing
Personality: Ryo is rarely serious about anything. He's always looking for fun and a good time, making the best of any situation. He is a bit wild, carefree, outgoing, and quite flirty. He even flirts when he isn't attracted to someone, just for kicks or to piss someone off. He likes to taunt and annoy those who dislike him, but for the most part he is very friendly. He's never calm, and this gets him in trouble at school quite a bit. Though his grades suffer, he loves school. He goes there to socialize. He gets a kick out of pestering Akira. He knows better than to mention Toshi, but he likes to tease him about other things. Sometimes he'll even flirt with him, just because it makes him uncomfortable. He knows Akira likes to keep to himself, and Ryo doesn't get why anyone wouldn't want to be social, so he picks on him a bit, trying to force him to join in the fun of life. He looks at Saya like a little sister and gets a bit protective over her.
Other: Ryo's mother died during childbirth, and his father took off when he was 5, leaving him to be raised by various Sohma family members. Because he was such a rambunctious trouble maker, no one kept him for long. He started to get a kick out of seeing what he could do to make them snap, and made bets with himself how long someone would keep him. When he started high school, he felt he didn't need "parental" guidance anymore, so he moved in with an older cousin and stayed.
Name: Saya Sohma
Personality: Saya is simple minded and optimistic. She's often hyper, and it was thought a risk for her to even go to the public school because she's sometimes too friendly. She thinks nothing of hugging someone she just met, so it is difficult for her to refrain from embracing male friends at school. She's full of life like Ryo, but much more innocent. She also tends to be forgetful and ditzy.
Other: Saya's parents pretty much couldn't handle her hyperness. It's difficult enough for them to keep the peace with each other without dealing with Saya's sunshiny attitude. To wrap it up, she gets on their nerves. To keep from hurting her feelings or being driven crazy, they suggested she stay with a family member for awhile, telling her it would be like a vacation. In her simple mind, she believed it was. Saya thinks of Ryo as her best friend. As friendly as she is, most of the girls in the school tease her a little. They think she's too childish for a high school girl, so she gets along much better with guys. Ryo has gotten light revenge on some of the girls who have teased her, just pulling little pranks that end up embarrassing them.
