mom (Kaede), dad (Hiro), and four older brothers (Daisuke, Hideki, Kenji and Shou)
a small apartment
he's very pretty, but often looks like he hasn't slept a lot or was just crying
he has a mole under his left eye
Haru can appear charming, sly and cocky, but is very much an insecure crybaby on the inside. Always sarcastic, with a deadpan sense of humor. He loves plushies and collects dolls, but wants people to think he’s a badass. He loves to draw, and write poetry and music. He's mostly an introvert, and a real daydreamer at that.
He sings in a band, and he's the most confident when he's on stage. It's his safe place; he feeds from the hype and the energy, and completely disappears into the music. But as soon as a show is over his anxiety gets the best of him, and he'll start to go over everything that happened, and pick it apart like "I went off key there", "why did I do that", "I shouldn't have done that" etc.
He was bullied a lot as a kid, and is still convinced that people will take advantage of him if he appears weak. He's a good-natured guy who tries his best to hide a pretty meek and gentle personality behind a tough (ish) facade. Fake it till you make it, Haru!

he swears it’s black coffee, but it’s not (it’s vanilla latte)
Bunnies, plushies, dolls, music, art, poetry, Lilith’s Revenge, punks, lolita, feminism
Bullies, being alone, having expectations to live up to, being compared to his brothers
He cares a lot about what other people think about him. He wants people to think he’s a badass, so he acts like he's hot shit around others. He only lets his guard down with his closest friends — and to some extent his band members.
He's very insecure, and used to turn to sex as a form of validation, and he's been taken advantage of a lot in the past.
He hates black coffee, but still orders it anyway because he thinks it makes him look cool.
He swears a lot — but he still sticks to rather harmless curses most of the time. He's too soft.
He has a lot of Pullip dolls.
He likes bunnies, and has a lot of bunny plushies, bags and charms.
He loves art, music and poetry equally.
His first language is japanese, but he also speaks english and a bit of french.
Haru suffers from depression to some degree, and has a lot of anxiety. He can’t help but to think about death a lot.
He craves peace and quiet — not from music, but from people. When he’s been out socializing all day, he needs time to recover and recharge.
Haru’s mom, Kaede, is a museum director and his dad, Hiro, is a CEO. He has 4 older brothers; Daisuke (a model), Hideki (an engineer), Kenji (he’s working with their dad), and Shou (a chef). Their parents are very proud of the elder brothers, but don’t have very high hopes for Haru, who has a lot of anxiety and favors art and music over ‘important’ things like diplomas and dashing recommendations.
He grew up next door to Alice, and they’ve been best friends their whole lives – their parents are good friends with each other too. While Haru was prone to being taken advantage of, Alice on the other hand was loudly and unrelentingly waging a one-girl-war on bullies everywhere. She’s saved his skin more than a few times.
When Alice left for Europe her parents suggested that Haru should come along, suggesting that he might have a better chance for personal growth there. Haru was overjoyed to go with his best friend, and to put a bit of a distance between himself, his constantly outshining brothers, and his demanding parents.
Haru and Alice are the founders of the band Knife Tsunami; Haru’s the one who wanted to start a band in the first place, and Alice was of course the first to join. Haru sings and plays guitar, and he’s also the lyric writer. He writes most of the music too, together with Jukebox. He’s a jack-of-all-trades.
He lives in a small studio apartment where he spends his time drawing, writing music and lyrics, and watching anime.
Mainly visual kei and j-rock inspired with a dash of punk. Stripes, tartan, distressed sweaters and fur trims, skulls, chains, studs and crosses galore. Lots of black & white and some red, but he has quite a few pink clothes too. His favorite brands are SEX POT ReVeNGe and Black Peace Now. He also owns a few lolita dresses; some sweet, some old school gothic lolita.
