Just like any other Asians who has black hair and dark eyes, but has a slight complex about his fair complexion, small build and baby-face, which are the main cause of his constant identity crisis: he was often mistaken as a girl.
A pretty laid-back person who is a free soul like his namesake; he likes to laze around and do whatever he pleases, at times may seem somewhat of an airhead, but don't be fooled by his innocent look. Beneath his easygoing mask, Miyu is actually quite observant and has high analyzing skills - he has the potential of being a great spy or detective, but sadly he doesn't have enough drive to follow through his many interests or hobbies, always jumping from one to another in a blink of an eye; however, his determination can be steely when needed. Sometimes he can be unconsciously blunt or oddly cryptic with his words, which makes him a rather difficult person to understand. He generally doesn't like to argue or fight with others as he feels that it's a waste of his time and effort unless he is greatly provoked, in which he may not even hesitate to kill. Oh yeah, did I mention that he's a dual-faced guy?
Miyu was born in London as the only child of his Japanese migrant parents. During daytime his parents worked hard to manage their small family cafe, but at night they were onmyouji, descendants from an ancient clan who possessed purifying powers to ward of evil spirits and demons involving the uses of ki (innate energy within the human body) and shikigami (paper charms to call forth and control certain spirits to do their bidding, or in Western magic term, familiars). Unfortunately onmyoudou is a very specialized form of Asian magic, hence there is a controversy about categorizing their bloodline - they can be seen as Asian wizards with an uniquely 'pure' blood, or simply muggles with supernatural powers. His father was often furious at his laziness, so in the end he's only exceptionally good at using shikigami to create doppelgangers (other than that he had forgotten literally everything else from his past onmyoudou training). However, he was well-trained in many forms of unarmed combats, which was very handy for self-protection...even in duels and Quidditch.
Miyu had been studying in a muggle elementary school until he received his Hogwarts letter. His parents were delighted about sending him off to the Western wizarding school to learn other magical skills beyond his onmyoudou training. Not for Miyu - his first two years at Hogwarts was his worst school life nightmare. At that time he was really awful at wandwork - he had the highest backfiring rate in Hogwarts history (reliability of this info is unknown) due to his accidental infusion of ki with his magic, a habit from his training as an onmyouji. As Western magic-casting is very different from his Asian ways, this caused his magical power to be over-amplified, which would then go out of control and set off explosions, even blowing up a classroom once. By his fourth year he could finally control his magic and he surprised his teachers with his extraordinary wandwork, and he went on to graduate with largely wand-heavy subjects for his NEWTs. He was quite a troublemaker in school i.e. walking out of the classroom openly halfway through a lesson or sleeping on the bed in the hospital wing when he's perfectly in good health, and he loved to explore the school grounds at night. There wasn't a place in Hogwarts where he forgot to leave his footprints on.
He always had a special interest in magical herbs and creatures; however, the family blood that flows within his body is too good at keeping dark species off his limits at all times - he had learned how to perform a Patronus Charm, but he didn't have the chance to actually use it on a Dementor. It is rumored that Peeves is afraid of him, that he probably threatened to exorcise the poltergeist with his Asian magic... (In reality Miyu doesn't know how at all, but the scare did help him to get Peeves on his blackmailing list.)
Quidditch Team (1, Seeker)
Defence Against the Dark Arts (2)
Cherry and phoenix feather, 11 inches, slightly springy.
Bought at Ollivanders, and it was the last cherry wand ever sold at the store. Ollivander commented that "with a lethal wood highly prized by his kind (the Japanese) coupled with an independent core that mirrors his inner self", it was a wand that had proven to be a very difficult one to tame. Indeed - Miyu had a lot of trouble trying to gain control over it in the beginning, but when he did, the bond between himself and the wand was so strong that the will of the wand literally echoed with its owner, allowing him to cast a wide range of non-verbal spells rather effortlessly compared to most others.
Raven. Note that it does not go with the widely-known reference to death and bloodbath but the ancient symbolism of wisdom, prophecy and...dark secrets.
Trapped in an hourglass, being stuck in a repeating time cycle that never ends.
Grass field, green tea.
Shikigami - unlike the standard kind that his parents normally use, Miyu's one is a simple paper cutting of a human figure, for creating doppelgangers. To activate its use, simply write the person's full name on the charm (in Japanese) while mentally channeling as much information of that person as possible into the doppelganger so that the double can be as close to the real person in resemblance. Most of the time Miyu used his doppelgangers as diversion puppets when he was about to be caught by teachers/caretaker for, say, being out of bed and sneaking around the corridors late at night, etc. He can also manually control the doppelganger through soul link with his double (for example, if he doesn't feel like going to class he can use the charm to replace him instead), but this requires a lot of concentration to hold on to the connection.
Wakizashi - similar to a katana but shorter. It was supposed to be passed on to him on his coming-of-age day but his mother decided to hand it down to him as a protection charm for his trip.
His family name 'Kisaragi' is an old Japanese term for the month of February, and the kanji of his first name 'Miyu' means freedom (a tweak from the actual Japanese romanji, which is written as 'jiyuu').
He was one of those "hatstall" cases, in which the Sorting Hat took longer time than usual to place him into a particular house (in his case between Gryffindor, Ravenclaw and Slytherin). In the end he was sorted to Slytherin, and it caused some raised eyebrows from his housemates.
Amelia Capello: ◑ | "Princess Popular." | They have literally zero interaction with each other - Amelia is the attractive, popular witch that everyone likes, while he is the strange and awkward little Asian boy who has...quite a reputation that contrasts greatly with his weak appearance. Adding to the fact that they are of rival houses, they simply just don't click with each other - on the outside that is. Miyu personally doesn't care about her popularity in school - he simply doesn't have an opinion about her, other than the fact that she is Emma's friend.
Anthony Farcross: ◑ | "No, I'm not envious of him at all, but he gets a nod of approval from me unlike someone I know..." | Knows about him through Quidditch and the Dueling Club, so they are already acquainted with each other but he isn't particularly close to this guy, probably because Miyu is a Slytherin. He also respects him for being a great Chaser - he finds the Slytherin team too dependent on him (the Seeker) to get the Snitch, which is why he could care less about team play.
Ben Brewer: ◑ | "Mr Nice Guy, but can be overly helpful sometimes." | Similar to Anthony - knows about him through Quidditch and the Dueling Club, so they are already acquainted with each other but he isn't particularly close to this guy, probably because Miyu is a Slytherin.
Emma "Dilemma" Robinson: ◑ | "You would get a dilemma if you mess with the Dueling Queen. You've been warned." | Respects her as the captain of the Dueling Club and admires her fearsome dueling power...and that's about it. Well, maybe a bit thankful that she invited him to join the club, though he wonders what she actually sees in him for her to bring him into the club personally.
Eoghan "Logan" O'Lynch: ◑ | "Entertaining entertainer? Well, he does put up nice trick shows." | Friendly rivalry with him in house Quidditch matches since they are both Seekers. Other than that, he just views him as an interesting entertainer, seeing how Logan can put up great trick performances. Logan's halfling background doesn't bother him one bit unlike some of the other students - he also experienced some forms of prejudice against his race and to a larger extent, his unique Asian magical ways.
Grant Dewitt: ☠ | "Lame. 'Nuff said." | They may be in the same house and same year but they are definitely not the best of friends - only acquaintance since they are in the same Quidditch team. Even though he is the captain, Miyu doesn't look up to him as much as he does to Emma; occasionally he enjoys pissing Grant off by acting on his own during the matches and can't be bothered with following his lead (he finds that loudmouth rather annoying sometimes and so he enjoys manipulating that guy's mood for a bit of personal laugh). He does respect Grant's flair with magical creatures (albeit secretly) where he's unable to, though he can't say the same for the way Grant deals with ladies - in fact, he wonders if Grant has been secretly relying on love potions to make himself looked like he's popular among girls.
Jack Rutherford: ◑ | "Insert A Small Quote About That Character Here." | Insert thoughts/feelings about character.
Maximilian "Max" Moonborn: ◑ | "The residential walking encyclopedia." | Knows very little about him...
Nymia Strix: ◑ | "My private source of school entertainment...heh." | The quiet, hardworking Gryffindor bookworm who curls herself up in a corner and trying too hard not to eat up the book literally - that is how he sees her in school. He doesn't go off bullying her like the rest in his house, but sometimes he finds it amusing to terrorize his bullying housemates when she does nothing but shrinking herself into the wall - his intention isn't to save her, but rather he feels disappointed at the lack of drama and decides to spice things up on his own. Now that they have all graduated, he is actually a bit surprised that she hasn't change much while he has became less impulsive compared to the him in school. He is picking up the odd way she has been acting around him and is starting to take some interest in her...

FINAL FANTASY TYPE-0: 2ND PLAYTHROUGH
MC: EIGHT - LEVEL 65
May develop a secondary mutation depending on IC progress
Offense: able to freely control his own blood and form into various types of blade and whip weapons (he avoids ranged types because he isn't a great shooter). He makes up the lack of power with speed - with his martial arts background as an added bonus, that makes him a rather deadly fighter.
Defense: he can cover his body partially with his blood that is able to act as an enforcement shield, which enables him to greatly reduce the damage received from physical attacks.
He can also break the limit of blood transfusion compatibility - that is, he is able to receive blood of others that may not be compatible to his blood type medically speaking, because his blood can easily overwrite that and turn them to become his, which replenishes his blood quickly from excessive blood loss when he overuses his power.
Only can control his own blood - unable to control the blood of others directly unless he mixes his blood in theirs. His ability requires a lot of concentration to minimize unnecessary blood loss and he is drawing power from his own blood, hence he is unable to keep it active for prolonged period of time, or else he would be down with anemia.
He cannot cover his entire frame (yet) or extend his blood shield to other people as that would need a lot of willpower from him, and may put him in danger of getting a coma or even death.
As mentioned in the section above, he sucks with ranged weapons and prefers close combat.
On The Inside...
Martial Arts, Table Tennis
Reading, Role-Playing Video Games, Nature Photography
On the outside, Rei is a quiet, mild-mannered teenager who is rather oblivious to his surroundings and always seems to be lost in his own thoughts, preferring to work at his own pace, an odd loner. It's difficult to start a conversation and/or keep it going with him, for he pays little to no attention to the ongoing discussion and instead let his mind drifts off to things that interest him more, so sometimes he may suddenly change the topic at random and that often confuses the rest, or leave the group without prior warning. As one gets to know him better, hints of his sadistic side will start to surface; he rarely sympathize with others, secretly enjoying the sight of them writhing in agony. In truth, Rei is a kuudere, someone who is cold, blunt and downright sarcastic at first but may slowly warms up to you as you interact with him more - he just doesn't know how to be honest with himself and isn't good with words, so he may unconsciously offend others or can be quite cryptic at times.
Very few people know about the darkness caged away in his subconscious mind: Rei has a survival instinct so strong that he's willing to do whatever it takes to stay alive, even if it means killing the people who are closest to him without any mercy. It was lucky that the X-Men found him before going to the wrong side, before he lost his humanity completely and turned into a killing machine. It is uncertain if his lust for blood is caused by the bad experiences of his past or a side-effect of his mutation...or possibly a combination of both. The memorial of Charles Xavier, Jean Grey and Scott Summers and the story of their death would serve as a powerful reminder for himself if he ever let his ability to go on a rampage.
Being the center of attraction - he prefers to fade into the shadows and watch from the sidelines.
He is also wary of his occasional (and slowly growing) blood-lust, and that's why he normally avoids getting into unnecessary fights with others to keep the killing intent sleeping inside him in check - it isn't funny to start a massacre in a school, especially in the place where he's beginning to think of it as a sanctuary.
Delving A Little Deeper...
Rei was born in Las Vegas on June 15, 1994, raised single-handedly by his Japanese father after his Chinese mother ran away for another man when he turned five. In order to escape from the shock and pain at losing his wife, his father turned into a work-obsessed salaryman - the young neglected Rei had no choice but to stand up on his own feet to look after himself on his own, so as not to be a burden to his dad (this became the cause of his detached personality). He found it hard to connect with people and his reclusive situation worsened, in which he started to take up martial arts training and throwing himself into numerous interests and activities to fill up the emptiness in his social life. He was constantly been targeted by the bullies in school and in his neighborhood - even though he merely shrugged them off and went on with his daily life, he was unaware of the dark seed that was planted inside of him...
He had always known that he possessed some kind of strange power: he noticed that his blood didn't bleed out like most others do when he's injured; he seemed to be able to heal faster compared to other people. He had mistaken his ability as regeneration (albeit a slow one) but it turned out to be blood manipulation - he was mentally holding back the bleeding. He only unlocked his mutant potential when he was eleven: a group of drunk gamblers who had just lost their money mugged and raped him to vent their anger and frustration, and that caused something inside of Rei to snap and killed them all out of sudden rage. That spur of violent blood-thirst started to corrode his inside and the seed began to grow...
His father had no idea about his power until Storm and Wolverine came down to their house and offered Rei a place in Xavier's School, to learn how to better control his ability. His father was shocked to learn that his son was born a mutant, but he was also surprisingly supportive of sending Rei away to the mutant school. Rei had suspected that his father was probably trying to get rid of a monster like him, but it turned out that his dad had been blaming himself the whole time for not being able to give his son the family warmth that he needed, and could only hope that if Rei hanged out with people of his kind, maybe that would help to change him for the better...
The kanji of his family name, Yorutsuki, literally translates to 'night moon', while his first name Rei means 'zero' (hence the nickname). Also, his given name sounds very similar to the English word 'Ray', which becomes his other nickname.
His mutant alias, Sice, is from a character in his favorite console game, Final Fantasy Type-0.
Trilingual - fluent in English, Japanese and Mandarin Chinese.
Slightly misogynistic - his great dislike towards flirty women began with his hatred for the mother who abandoned him and his father for another man.
Recently starts to wear a needle for necklace for him to prick his skin and activate his power with more ease.

FINAL FANTASY TYPE-0: 2ND PLAYTHROUGH
MC: EIGHT - LEVEL 65
An archetypal bishoujo tsundere - harsh with her words, but there are times where she will show her dere side. Serah is a no-nonsense girl who is usually unsmiling and can be somewhat a perfectionist - she is stern to others, but even stricter to herself, always striving to be better than before, which causes her to seem very competitive and haughty. She has quite a sarcastic streak in her; sometimes she can be a little temperamental and is quick to resort to mild violence when irritated/angered. However, behind her tough face she is actually an insecure girl who is trying her best to stand up on her own in the harsh reality, and wants someone she can rely on.
Serah is born in Singapore to a Japanese father and an American mother before moving to Japan at aged 11.
(The rest of her bio will be further developed in the IC.)
IS --- KUROKAZE
(Color scheme is inverted; change the orange highlights to red.)
Both, but more inclined to melee.
Wakizashi x2: one attached to each leg
Blast cannons x2: one on each palm
Since her IS is the lightweight kind, she is unable to equip heavier weapons like lances (close range) or rifles and missile launchers (long range).
Serah is pretty good in kendo - her sensei is none other than the famous Houki Shinonono.
She is fluent in English, Mandarin and Japanese.
