The result of a fleeting relationship, Rei is the youngest son of Chishio and Kaede. Born a sickly runt, Rei grew up in a rather sheltered and spoiled manner; doted on both by his mother and his over protective older brother Ran. However, this lifestyle was short lived. Deemed a nuisance and drain upon the packs resources, he along with his middle brother Ryu were exiled, with Ran following them of their own free will.

Upon their mothers parting advice, they sought out their Itou heritage, quickly getting drawn into the games and infighting their Japanese relatives are so fond of playing. Upon the death of their cousin, Aoi, Rei and his siblings fled, eventually getting separated. Unable to survived for long on his own, Rei joined Cercatori d'Arte, hoping that by remaining in one place that his siblings would find him.

It was as a member there that Rei met Alder, the two becoming fast friends and Rei developing a crush upon the noble male, leading to him striking out on his own and moving to Cour des Miracles to be closer to the subject of his affections. The two became fast friends and then lovers, having their first litter with the aid of a surrogate, Rei and Alder are fathers to Acacia, Argan, Silverbell, Walnut and Willow.


Rei died [M] on the 12th of December, committing planned suicide [M] with Alder at his side, after suffering from an unknown disease for some time.

1.2  Forms

Lupus

20 lbs (9 kg)18 in (46 cm)
Hugging tight to his form, his pelt highlights the males thin body, making him appear more feminine the masculine, his ribs show a little and his legs appear fragile and delicate. His fur is only ample in the area around his neck, in particular the back of his neck.

Secui

115 lbs (52 kg)28 in (71 cm)
Unlike other secui, Rei simply looks like a more healthy lupus then anything, although his legs appear even more fragile in this form since they are elongated. The fur around his neck darkens and becomes more brittle to the touch.

Optime

130 lbs (59 kg)5ft 4in (163 cm)
Small and delicate, his optime form is feminine and androgynous, curves where there should be solid lines of muscle. The hair around his neck that was brittle and knotted turns into a mess of long dreadlocks, wild and untameable.

Medical Notes

  • Weak Immune System: Prone to picking up common diseases and struggles to fight them off. As such he doesn't accept anything of strangers, avoids contact with others, all food is cooked and he suffers from a near compulsive need to clean himself excessively.
  • Fragile Bones: Not only is Rei exceptionally small compared to his siblings, his bones are weak and can easily take damage or fracture. As such, he requires a greater amount of calcium in his diet although he is not aware of this fact.
  • Mild Haemophilia: Rei suffers from 'Haemophilia A', which is an inherited deficiency where the blood struggles to clot, due to a lack of clotting factor VIII. Rei possess around between 25–40% of normal levels of active clotting factors and as doesn't suffer too much in everyday life. Bruises can cause internal bleeding and cuts and scrapes bleed for a prolonged period of time. He can suffer from common bleeds in his joints, muscles and digestive tract. Scabs also are prone to re-opening and bleeding again.

Accessories

  • Like the rest of the male Itous, Rei was given a metal necklace upon his birth, his mother having learnt of the family tradition through Chishio in idle conversation.

Clothes

  • A 'scavenged' pair of shorts from one of the wolfdogs mysterious trips, they are worn and torn all over.
  • a simple triangle scarf adornes his neck.

Interaction

  • Speech: Rei's speech is soft, with a slight stutter at times. His voice is subtly high for a male; similar to a feminine sounding low tone - almost sultry at times.
  • Scent: Itou (Rain / Damp Earth / Ironwood), Floral (Swamp Rose) and Mixed Herbs
  • Quirks, Gestures, Etc.: Overly feminine gestures; although he is adamant that he does no such things.
  • General Posture and Body Language: Rei often appears highly timid and nervous around strangers. He has knee jerk reaction and generally responds badly/aggressively when a stranger tries to touch him or gets too close.

2.  Personality

The Medic, Beware the Nice Ones, Self-Deprecation & Neat Freak

Cautious of anything unknown, whether it be a simple object or a stranger, Rei is perhaps a touch sheltered and ignorant of the world, having spent much of his life in solitude or in the company of family alone. Many things that are common sense to others, are completely new to him; his sheltered youth has also left him with a rather spoilt attitude, which resulted in him being used to others providing for him. Hesitation shadows his every move and every thought, stemmed from a fear of disease and injury; to strangers his actions may appear as if he is disinterested or plain cold, such responses are nothing more than to keep others away from him.

Despite his fragile, delicate appearance, Rei is still masculine at his core; he has a huge amount of pride, a need to prove himself and his capabilities, as well as a desire to look after others. Unable to fight or display power in any quantity, Rei is an avid medic, constantly learning and expanding upon his skills. With a patient within his care and something to fix, Rei’s confidence grows, the runt stubborn, bossy and generally disgruntled.

Rei has been known to show a strong sense of justice, a belief in right and wrong, in heroes and villains. Stubborn, he can grow fixated over things and is prone to not watching his words at times, opting to vocalize his thoughts rather than confine them, so long as he is amongst familiar company or particularly worked up over a matter. Like much of his family, he does have a short temper, which explodes in screaming and shouting, never physical violence; always one to flee, rather than fight if things seem like they are about to get rough, in an attempt to avoid damage to his body. This said, the washed out merle has been known to often go of on his own, often stumbling his way unknowingly into trouble.

Organization and hygiene are also key controlling factors to his nature, since he is almost at an obsessive compulsive disorder level in both areas. Personal hygiene is a big deal to him and those who are unclean are treated with horror and disdain by him.

4.  History

Drawn to Kaede's pack by it's name and the humour he found in it, Chishio approached the pack and encountered one Kaede Arakaki; the female behind the name of a pack. Kaede was a very distant decent of a Japanese Wolf x American Wolf at some point in her history, her parents choosing to give her a Japanese to reflect the distant heritage. Intrigued by a non-japanese female baring such a name, Chishio found himself intrigued by her and after his interest waned he left, Kaede discovering she was pregnant shortly after his departure.

The litter was born, 11/11/11 and much to the horror of Kaede, two of the three pups; Rei and Ryu were born runts and exceptionally weak bodied. After months of dedicated care, the two runts succeeded in fighting of the worst of their diseases and problems and began to live normal lives. Then their home pack decided they were too weak, exiling them for their incapacity to be efficient hunters; unwilling to leave the two alone, Ran followed with them and the three began to seek out other family members from the information their mother provided them.

  • July: Upon reaching what was considered adulthood by their pack, Rei and Ryu were exiled on the basis they were nothing more than a drain on the families resources
  • September: Following their mothers words, they sought out the settlement Kaiho Suiiki, established by Asuka Itou & Hideki Itou; the place their father had informed their mother, that they would be able to find family there; arriving shortly after Ren, Miwa, Aphrodite and her mate Akihiro had left for Japan.
