by Kitty

In his youth, he carried excess weight even past the stage where he should've lost his puppy fat. This was lost after his first shift when he became more active through animal care. Now Hikaru's body is very feminine, he's thin with washboard abs and with visible collarbones. With a brief glance, it's possible he could be mistaken for a woman, until some on saw him closer up. He's athletic, with lean, compact muscles. He's got a doggish colour to him, stemming from a sliver of domestic heritage of various breeds.

Build and Species

Hikaru is obviously an almost full-blooded wolf. There is no real dog or jackal influence in him from his hybrid heritage.

Personality

Hikaru is a smart individual. He's a gentleman however, raised to be polite and respectful. He tends to steer away from trouble and aims to engage in activities that will either be useful to him or others. He believes in undertaking tasks to their ending and undertaking them as skilfully as he can. Understandably, as an Itou, he is not all he looks to be. While he remains calm on the outside and for the vast majority of the time, he has a dangerous streak. It's hard to provoke him into it, but he gets insanely angry and violent. Hikaru has the ability to be cunning and evil, but this usually follows an episode of rage. On the whole he is a placid, hard-working man.
