His facial features are sharp, with high cheek bones and a strong jaw, though it is difficult to shake the look of boyish mischief behind his ever-present grin.

Personality

Aki is bright and energetic, but not particularly vocal; very sharp and well-educated, but rather humble. He isn't precisely a man of few words so much as he prefers to listen than to talk - and when he talks, he likes to ask questions. Extremely inquisitive, sometimes to the point that it causes problems, Aki can be both an asset and a hindrance simultaneously. His rigid sense of morality and tendency to poke his nose in a little too deep results in a few more close calls and unusual problems than one would usually need to deal with. The humility also extends only as far as everyday life goes - when it comes to competition, Aki is probably a little too assertive and aggressive. He hates to lose, and plays to win regardless of the circumstances.

Notable Skills

Aki is, as one might imagine, a fairly impressive athlete. It started with peewee and midget hockey before he discovered his magical aptitude, and quickly extended to quidditch, and at Red Bells, quadpots (he still plays hockey when he finds other participants, though it's often a tall order in a school of British wizards). He is an apt dancer, an extraordinarily good sprinter, and (though he doesn't much talk about it) a fine cook. Also, he can figure skate at a high level, but that's a secret he's carrying to the grave. Though he has severe trepidations about hurting people with magic, Aki is quite capable of hurting people physically - he can handle several varieties of swords quite proficiently.

Magical Information

Aki is a good student overall, learning quickly and showing a fair amount of talent for most of the core areas of magic. He's a much better flier than he is a student, though, and his interest in magic extends mainly towards magical creatures, which he continues to find absolutely fascinating. His fascination with them might even be called unhealthy! Or eccentric, since that doesn't sound so bad. Aki does seem to have an ungodly amount of talent for countercharms, a point which might make him an excellent duelist save for the fact that he has no interest in hurting people with magic.

  • Patronus: Corporeal. A kestrel.

  • Wand: 9" — Cherry and Quetzal Pinion.
  • Broom: Suisei 5
  • Pets: Hooded Crow named Arielle
  • Other Belongings: Assorted clothes, ice skates, hockey pads and assorted other hockey paraphernalia (including an old Joe Sakic - Quebec Nordiques jersey that belonged to his grandfather), a fairly expansive collection of Pogo comics.

Brief History

Just a city boy! Born and raised in SOUTH DETROIT! He took the midnight train going aaaaaanywhere!

Actually, Aki's never been to Detroit. He was born and raised in Ottawa like any young Canadian boy - hockey, hockey, maple syrup, hockey, laugh at America, hockey, school, hockey, hockey, and hockey. At the tender old age of 11, though, Aki received a letter of acceptance from Red Bells. Of course, he and his parents thought it was a hoax, at first, but they got him off to school, and he started learning wizardry. Along with wizardry, he started learning something that appealed to him a lot more - quidditch.

The rest is history. Though he still hasn't taken any midnight trains. And if he did, they would be going to a specific location, not just anywhere.
