Kusunoki Masashige
Masashige, on a break.

Basic Info:

Player: Soulless

Name: Kusunoki Masashige (or just KuMa)

Position: NPC - Archivist

Demeanor: Masashige is a highly happy go lucky fellow who seems cheery and eager to make friends. He is highly accomodating and likes to go out drinking with co-workers. He never seems to have a bad day.

Nature: Masashige is lonely, calculating, and hard to form attachments. He's prone to trust issues, and overthinking what's going on. He tends to be very careful about what he says, and so can sometimes come off as dodgy or hard to understand to anyone who tries to get him more than surface level. As he still has all of KM's identity and memory, he can be especially dodgy around those subjects.

Description: He's pretty average, though distinctly japanese in appearance. He keeps himself well-groomed with expensive clothing, as he comes from a family of some wealth. He's of average height and build otherwise.

Personal History:

Masashige had always known about the veil in his own way. His father was a govenment agent for the USA studying anomalous things before the Foundation, working with the GOC. He immigrated to america from a young age for his dad's work and so he speaks English as comfortably as he does his Japanese. As he became older his bookish nature took after his father and he was employed as a GOC paper pusher, later given a referral to the Foundation.

Of course, that's the story. The real background can only be accessed by talking to him.
