    Full Name:

    Megumi Himura
    Nicknames:
    Megu; Himura
    Role:
    Himura Only Daughter
    Age:
    17
    Sexuality:
    Heterosexual
    Personality:
    Megumi is a bright, bubbly, and hardworking girl. She is always the first one to help, but usually the last one to finish. She has a short temper that snaps very easily. However, there are some people she simply can not get angry with. She is very impatient, moving around at every possible moment. Megumi is great with confrontation, often having a witty comeback when insulted. She is quick thinking, one of the top students in her class. Megumi is also very loyal to her friends and family. She will not let anyone hurt them without going through her first. Some people think that Megumi might be a brat because she grew up as a single child, but she is very selfless and loves to give. She also loves making new friends and is willing to give everyone a chance. Second chances are also in Megumi's giving nature, but she will not give anyone a third chance. She is also kind and warm, always comforting people.
    However, Megumi is also very insecure at times. She does not trust herself to make the right decisions and is always afraid of what people will think of her. She wants everyone to think highly of her, going out of her way to make amazing impressions. She stands up for what she believes in, but can easily be broken if the right buttons are pushed.
    Hobbies:
    ~ Reading>Megumi loves to read and has since she was a little girl
    ~ Anime/Manga>Megumi is a closet otaku
    ~ Piano>Megumi has been playing the piano since she was four
    ~ Composing>Along with playing the piano, Megumi composes music
    ~ Singing>She is also an amazing singer, but very shy about it
    Crush:

    Takao Nakanishi: Before Megumi even became friends with Takao, she had a crush on him. It wasn't really anything she could control, it just kind of happened. She is very aware of Hanako's crush on him as well as his crush on her. She is also aware that Hanako is aware that she has a crush on him. However, she never brings it up because she values all of their friendships too much. Actually, there are times when she tries to get them together because she cares so much about them. However, they both seem too dense to realize it. Recently, Megumi has thought about falling out of their circle all together so that Hanako and Takao could be happy to together. She'd make a terrible girlfriend anyways.
    Flaws/Fears:
    ~ Acrophobia>Megumi has a severe fear of heights.
    ~ Allergies>Megumi is very allergic to daisies; too much exposure could kill her.
    ~ Asthma>Despite being very athletic, Megumi has very bad asthma
    Miscellaneous:
    ~ Her Bow>If Megumi's bow is even slightly lopsided or messed up, she has a mini freak out session. It was a gift from Takao.
    ~ Dialogue is purple

    Full Name:
    Tomoyo Wantanabe
    Nicknames:
    Tomo; Imouto {only used by her twin}; Wantanabe
    Role:
    Twin Two
    Age:
    14
    Sexuality:
    Pansexual
    Personality:
    Tomoyo is excessively curious, but she is a quiet wonderer. She doesn't ask questions, but instead goes off on her own to research. She pays attention in class, but every other time, her mind is wandering. Tomoyo is also very prone to coming up with ridiculous theories about very random things. She is quite lazy, only working when she feels like it. She is obsessed with aliens and theories that relate to aliens. Tomoyo is usually a very reserved girl, but when you start talking about something that interests her, she never stops talking. She also has an almost eerie ability to judge people for who they really are. Tomoyo claims it's because she and her twin have a telepathic connection. There are times when Tomoyo is very energetic and times when she's very solemn, usually at the wrong time. To people outside of her circle of friends and her family, she is normally shy and quiet.
    Tomoyo is also very attached to her sister. She is protective of her despite being the younger sibling and hates when people are mean to her. She will do anything to make sure her sister is happy, even if it means risking her own happiness. The only other person Tomoyo is like that with is her mother.

    Hobbies:
    >Researching~Tomoyo will research anything she's interested in.
    >Aliens~Tomoyo is obsessed with aliens.
    >Sewing~It isn't very well known that Tomoyo is an amazing seamstress and she doesn most of the sewing in her house.
    Crush:
    TBD

    Flaws/Fears:
    >Arachnophobia~Tomoyo is terrified of spiders.
    >Obsession~Some think that she takes her obsession with aliens a tad too far.
    >Social Interaction~Tomoyo isn't very social and as a result has very little friends.

    Miscellaneous:
    >Tomoyo can't stand tea, she really doesn't like the taste of it.

    Full Name:
    Hanako Minami

    Nicknames:
    Hana; Minami;

    Family/Role:
    Minami youngest daughter

    Age:
    16

    Sexuality:
    Demisexual

    Personality:
    Hanako is bright and energetic to most everyone she meets, that is once you get passed her shy exterior that is. As fun loving and open of a person she is, she's terribly shy around new people. She'll make move's to duck behind her best friends if their there and if not she'll try to blend into the background. Once she opens up you'll have a a loud and rambunctious Hanako in your life. At times she can be a little annoying but those who grow used to her tend to find her antics endearing.

    On top of her fun personality she's got a pretty even temperament and is hard to work into a tizzy. However once you manage to knock her off culture and into 'angry' territory she's a spit fire and a powerful enemy. She will grow vicious and unafraid to take revenge. One of the sure fire ways to set her off is to go after her friends or pick at her flaws. She tends to space out a lot and because of this has a habit of getting bad grades and lost in all places. Her forgetfulness is a dangerous combination with her clumsiness. If she starts to drift off while walking she tends to fall flat on her face.

    She for all her saving graces is very vindictive and and oblivious. She will lash out and some times not realize she's taken thing to far unlike she's torn a person to pieces. She's also very ignorant of her own feelings. Even when she does catch onto others feelings she tends to avoid them or go about dealing with them the wrong or unhealthy way; like her giving up on a guy just because she realized that Megumi liked him.

    Hobbies:
    Dance (For someone so clumsy she's actually a quite the beautiful dancer.)
    Going to Playgrounds
    Watching comedies
    Day dreaming
    Playing in the dirt/sand/rain(A.K.A. getting dirty/beingchildish)


    Crush(s):
    Takao Nakanishi
    (She's not unaware of her friend Megumi's crush on him. In fact she's painfully aware of it, she knows she'd never be any match against Megumi for his affections. Not that she'd want to ruin her chances with a guy she clearly likes so much. She just wants her friends to be happy and if that means stepping down and not even trying, then that's what she'll do.)

    The Heartbreaker
    (Her brother's best friend gets under her skin. She finds him frustrating and pig headed, and often catches herself starting to argue with him. She doesn't think she likes him, in fact she's pretty sure she hates him. He gets her blood heated and her temper flared. She's not aware that her 'hatred' is turning into a crush, but it's quickly developing just under the surface. It's a thin line between love and hate and all that jazz.)

    Flaws/Fears:
    Clumsy.
    Shy.
    Afraid of dogs.
    Vindictive.
    Oblivious.


    Miscellaneous
    TBA

    Role:

    The Kind Boy

    Age:
    16

    Sexuality:
    Heterosexual

    Personality:
    His role truly reflects on his personality, keeping up with the most rewarded quality of his. Kindness. From the very beginning he was praised on being an adorable, kind, sweet child that everyone wanted to be friends with or have around. Inviting him over for dinner and some parents even going as far as to arrange marriage to their daughters, which was quickly refused. His manners were impeccable, his vocabulary wide, his knowledge beyond his years. Sometimes you would find him with his face buried in a book and other times he would be hanging around outside with his wide selection of friends. Though his qualities throughout the years brought him to hang out with females, he was a caring and loyal kid something most boys dismissed as signs of being different. Abnormal. So maybe the boy liked flowers and fairytales? What made him different from everyone else?

    Hobbies:
    ♦ Playing the Piano
    ♦ Logic Puzzles
    ♦ Reading
    ♦ Sketching
    ♦ Card Games

    Crush:
    Hanako Minami


    Fears:
    ♦ Horror Movies
    ♦ Falling In Love
    ♦ Being Different


    Flaws:
    ♦ Has a multitude of insecurities
    ♦ Went through a phase where he believed nobody cared, causing him to now have a variety of scars on his arms, thighs and stomach
    ♦ Believes that he can be good at almost anything, which causes for his confidence to completely deteriorate when he doesn't make it
    ♦ Has a set up list of his own religions and rules to follow

  11. cyril is japenese, it's actually very popular, i found it in good japenese names
     
  12. hmm, i have seen that name in a lot of anime shows, oh well i 'll find a new name
     
  13. @justice hunt The Japanese language does not have a "l" letter in it. While it may have been in animes, that does not mean it is a Japanese name, considering the fact that many animes stray from the actual language to copy Western culture.
     
  14. alright fixed it
