Name: Shouhei Murata

Glamor Name: Shouhei Murata

Age: 17

Monster type/species: Karasu Tengu
Info on Tengu:[link]
My Summary/Info I go by: Tengu are one of the best known Yokai and are found in japanese folklore. The Shasekishū, a book of Buddhist parables from the Kamakura period, makes a point of distinguishing between good and bad tengu. The book explains that the former are in command of the latter and are the protectors, not opponents, of Buddhism - although the flaw of pride or ambition has caused them to fall onto the demon road. In the 18th and 19th centuries, tengu came to be feared as the vigilant protectors of certain forests. The people of Ishikawa Prefecture have until recently believed that the tengu loathe mackerel, and have used this fish as a charm against kidnappings and hauntings by the mischievous spirits. Tengu are worshipped as beneficial kami (gods or revered spirits) in various Japanese religious cults. There are no known fatal weaknesses for tengu since they are considered somewhat godlike.

Glamor item: Fall Leaf Hairclip

Natural weapons: Talons/claws

Trained weapons: Katana (His blade never leaves his side. A tengu's blade is their life), fan (It's made of metal and about the length of his elbow to his wrist. It is able to expand in size to about Shouhei's full height. Shouhei's still not good at using it since he can't use wind- being young and all- so he usually just uses it has a giant hunk of metal shield or as a way to bluntly hit someone)

Grade: Freshman

Current Classes: None

Passed Classes: None

Current Points: 4,397

Favorite class: History

Worst class: Potions

Weakness:
-Pride: as many other tengu most often the thing that leads to their downfall is their overwhelming pride.
-Mackerel fish: He can't stand the stuff. Eating it is a definite no no.
-Swords: Oh the irony- such fine skilled swordsmen are found in a human like state of weakness/ certain death when faced with a blade. When fatally injured by a blade they will die as any other mortal would.

Major Skills:
-Jumping Great Lengths: Used for jumping from tree to tree in the mountains he was born on.
-As part of the tengu culture, is skilled in swordsmanship and martial arts
-Super Strength: A skill mostly used in the tengu village competition of tackling down trees.

Minor Skills:
-Communicates with: crows, ravens and others of the like.
-Keen sense and focus as trained to be so as to be able to locate his opponents presence.
-Flying....his wings..yeah *SHOT*

Personality:
Shouhei although having been taught to always be on his guard is a fairly relaxed person. He prefers listening to birds chatter on a nice clear day than to brood over difficult situations in life. He can be distant but once he finds someone he admires or cares for he takes advantage of spending as much time as possible with them since he cherishes these moments.
A weak point in his personality is his inherited pride. If he finds a better swordsman than himself he hits rock bottom and finds himself unable to properly wield his sword. In such cases it's preferred he remain with others until this period passes. It's takes a bit to get him genuinely mad but not much to get him irritated to start an argument.

Character's Background:
Shouhei was born in the japanese mountains and remained their in solitude with his fellow tengu in the village. He had little to no contact with others of any race besides the few humans who found their village seeking to be taught their way of the sword. His family was closer to the lower ranks of the tengu since his family lineage didn't hold any exceptional swordsman(in tengu eyes).
He spent most of his childhood with his mother since his father was usually away trying to raise his families position and gain honor. In turn Shouhei had to work a bit harder to keep the family farm up which was already hard considering the rocky mountain terrain. Once he became of age his father, worn down from his failure, focused on him and began to seriously teach him swordsmanship outside of his required village classes. Shouhei enjoyed these extra classes not just because he enjoyed fighting but because he felt joy from the hope his father had in him.
Still young, he hasn't had the chance to prove himself or gain honor for his family. A few ways he made his name known in the village was in the sport of tackling down great trees in the forest during competitions between the tengu. He always found himself needing to be iced back home by his mother but enjoyed a good laugh with her and his father after the soreness subsided.

More facts:

Height: 6"10 with his wooden sandals. 6"5 without

Weight: 155 lbs

Yukiko: *She was in her monster form, chasing butterflies around the school grounds. Yes, butterflies, since she hadn't seen any little birds that she could have chased. It was fun and not to mention a very cat like thing to do. * Meow! *She leaped after one yellow butterfly and failed to see the student taking a rest under a tree nearby and since she was already in the air, there was no way to stop. * M-meowww!? *She meowed loudly and rammed against the student. *

She slid down for a short way before falling on her butt on the other students lap.* M-meouwww.....*She meowed weakly and shook her head before finaly realising, what had happened.* Me-meouwww-meouwww! *She tries to apologize to the other student and forgets that she couldn't speak in this form. Swiftly she bounced off of the others lap and then transformed in to her human form.* I-I'M SO SORRY! *She blurted out and leaned closer to the other while sitting next to him, peering in to his eyes and hoping that he wouldn't hit her or anything.*

Vitalis: *wait, new guys already? Ugh... He really needs to start paying attention to the happenings of this freaking school. Then again, he never sees the need for it. His roommate and girlfriend do that for him.* What're you? *blunt as always and never one for formalities, he hooks his thumbs on the corners of his hoodie pockets and looks the new kid up and down. His own hair is tied up in a low ponytail with a thin red ribbon and draped over one shoulder. Such a look would have made him look feminine, if not for his general appearance and aura that indicates otherwise.*

(( Excuse my freaking long rp start/thing/whatever. Also, meet jerkface-feather-brains. Expect to not get along.

:iconfacepalmplz: Still trying to figure out why he gets along with girls better. ))

Shouhei: *wait- someone who already doesn't like him? Well this is going to be fun not really.* .... *he blinks, a bit caught off guard by the sudden question and the follow up examination- himself doing a bit of a look over* Tengu, you? *he raises an eyebrow- awkwardly tilting his head down to look Vitalis in the face- dat height difference* Ah- *wait- no time to be rude- he gives a bow- his long braid shifting along his back and over to his side as he does- then back after he straightens his back* I'm Murata, Shouhei= it's nice to meet you. *must..be..formal*

Vitalis: *if he's at all put off by the giant height difference, he either doesn't really care, or is thinking of a way to turn it to his own advantage. Probably both.* Tengu... huh? *nods slightly, not impressed, but interested. Really, this school is a fountain of knowledge when you look in the right places... A flicker of surprise shows on his face at the bow though it disappears as quickly as it comes* Phoenix. Name's Vitalis... You realize I'm just a student, right? Granted I'm at a higher level than you but seriously, no need to be so damn formal. *he rubs the back of his neck, just a tad uncomfortable. Formalities mean nothing to him.*

(( I'm waiting for someone to slap him. Hasn't happened yet. Unfortunately. ))

Shouhei: *his eyes widen a bit* A phoenix.... *he closes his eyes slightly in thought*.. I've seen paintings but not much else. You're kind is quite breath taking. *his shoulders relax and he laughs a bit* I figured you were a student- well more so hoped. I'm formal because this is how I was taught- pardon me if it isn't something you're used to Vitalis-san.*he notes the slight signs of discomfort and shifts his weight to his right leg* So you're.. a second year?

(( It will. One day. I hope. I will laugh when it does. And Vitalis will hopefully have a slap mark on his cheek the whole day.))

Vitalis: Vitalis. Not 'Vitalis-san'. And yeah, surprisingly managed to get through the first year without detention. *and he actually is surprised. With his luck of simply not getting along with people, it's a miracle he had barely gotten in a number of fights. Sure there was that one time when he and Lucian nearly killed each other but still....* As for my kind being breath-taking... *he shrugs* Don't see why. We're basically birds on fire.

(( Trust me. I love him like I do all my other characters and I still want him slapped.

P/S: SHOUHEI NEEDS TO JOIN THE HOST CLUB. I dunno. It looks like he'll fit in perfectly. *influenced by the icon* ))

Vitalis: *raises his hands defensively at the sudden wide grin on the Tengu's face* Calm down, idiot. We're not friends. That's not a term I give people very easily. *pause* Well.... At the moment, it's more like an acquaintanceship. Having a 'hi-bye' relationship isn't friendship no matter how you look at it. As for detention.... Just don't mess up and it'll be fine. *he laughs softly at the last question, raising a hand and setting it on fire. No parlor-trick, the flames dance harmlessly along his skin, caressing it in waves of orange and yellow* Hmmm.... *he examines his burning hand as if curious before the flames suddenly flicker out of existence and he grins* Nope. I don't think so. *he's such a show-off.*
