Role In The Village:Taro's Second Aprentice
Language: Common, Kankei
Appearance: Z yes that's his name, is a young boy scrapped out of the slums by Taro, or so he thinks, he was picked by the older boy for many reasons, mainly his will to live. He can't remember a moment in his life where he was not by Taro's side, learning, and growing up around the strange world Taro called a home.
Z rarely has what most would call a presentable appearance, he seems to be dirty and messy all the time, on the rare moments he's actually clean and proper he can pass as a very refined young boy, his strikingly bright red hair adorns his head, it's rarely styled, but usually keep short, without counting that he usually wears a bandana to make sure his hair and sweat don't get in the way. Proof that's he's a real natural red head can be seen on his thin eyebrows, which one can see most of the time unless his bandana has scrolled down hiding them in the proses.
His eyes are tricky, and strange because they have an animalistic haze to them and the fact that they start a bright red slowly shifting into a slivery blue and that also tends to catch people attention, but it doesn’t end there they seem to be directly connected to his emotions as they turn into an very dark red under anger and when he’s calm they tend to turn faded blue. Most of the features on his face are small and youthful, but that's to be expected when one keeps in mind his age,like many Kimera before him his canines are longer than normal though not so that there noticeable till he shows them in a toothy smile.
Z's build is thin, lithe, agile, clearly the body of someone who moves a lot, and enjoys straying on the move, something many will see as they met him, Z as much as Taro has tried to teach him to use words before actions, has been known to curl his fist and get into a brawl which rarely ends well for him, hence the constant bandages, and the defensive attitude, his hands are small, but strong, having seen combat many, many times, and it's not rare for people to see them wrapped with bandages or with gloves. As much as Z hates having to accept his Kimera decent, but the nails on his hands albeit a bit shorter than other Kimera, are clawed, and can be 'unsheathed' giving them half an inch more of length.
Z has naturally has darker skin than most Hyougan and with all the sun he takes it tends to tan, he's got a few marks here and there from his scuffles, and on his neck is a very peculiar birth mark on the base of neck, three silver parallel lines, the one on the middle is the longest while the two on each side bend slightly giving it the appearance of a very basic flour de lis.
At waist length is the epitome of Kimera genetics working on overdrive to leave a distinctive mark, in this case his prehensile tail, it's appearance similar to a monkeys, long covered whit a thin layer of brownish red hair.
Clothing:When it comes to getting dressed Z is lazy, and he really docent care, clothing is clothing, he dislikes sandals since they allow people to see the claws on his feet, and tends to wear baggy pants or a cape to hide his tail, he usually prefers short sleeve shirts, but they tend to have high necks to cover the flour de lis of the Kimera and his hands are usually covered by bandages or simple gauntlets.
Background: Z's past is a bit fussy, mainly because there two versions, his and the real one, in reality he's the son of Evangeline Kudo, the successful blacksmith and diplomat, her little love affair lead to Z's conception, in honor of her brother, he was named Kain Kudo, but due to a series of events she was unable to take care of him and raise him, something she regrets every second of her life...
Now, that's not the full story, but I'm not here to give you the full story, at one point Taro took Z under his wings as his second apprentice, at that point the young boy adopted the name Z, since he didn't recall his real name, while Taro's first apprentice was trained to make sure that the nine paths would continue their path without him, Z was being taught everything, he was going to inherit everything that Taro owned and lead, once he was old enough to administer that empire.
Z's life was fairly normal, if one where to put aside the fact that he was being raised to lead and underground empire, and that hundreds of lives where at stake, he caused his mischief, he made friends, and trained every day hoping to make Taro proud, to his luck, Taro's friends, managed to create a medicine, that stopped death from claiming him earlier than expected, which also gave Z a greater change to have a childhood...
