This is Sanyo news! The warmth of summer has just arrived, the odd chill that was spring is now gone! We got some strange news for you rumor mongers though. It seems that there is a cherry blossom tree atop the Bubble. All attempts to have it taken down seem to have failed. For now it still seems to be under investigation.
Basics Full Name: Lewis Wagner Nickname(s): None Age, D.O.B.: 17, 9/26 Gender: male Category: persona user Arcana: Magician Grade/Career: Third-year high school student Ethnicity: Caucasian Family: Felix Wagner (father), Julia Wagner (mother)
Appearance Standing at an even six feet, Lewis is a tall, fair-skinned and slim figure of wiry build; it is evident that he's somewhat athletic, but for the most part an endurance athlete. Cardio and stamina have always been his thing. Steely grey eyes give the misleading appearance of a deadly serious man. His black hair is almost immaculately styled, with the exception of one hair that constantly sticks up. He seems to constantly wear either a smirk of self-assurance or a scowl. On a social occasion he'll usually wear something classy, but not flashy - enough to draw attention for style, not flair. At home or just hanging out he'll wear a t-shirt or a hoodie.
Personality Likes:movies, sleeping, being a smartass, fencing, not doing anything, socializing, swimming, running. Dislikes:being on his own, the cold, spiders, sharks, know-it-alls, other smartasses Hobbies: Though he likes games, music, and on occasion a good book, Lewis is first and foremost a movie buff. He's also been known to swim recreationally, and has been a competitive runner and fencer for a couple of years. Goals: Mostly to get through the school year alive. Lewis doesn't like to think about his goals very much, because that's far too long-term. He prefers to shirk personal responsibility for important things and goof off.
As a person he's just as dynamic; usually carefree and self-assured, but also pretty quick to get stressed or emotional. He doesn't know what he'll do with his life, but ideally it will (of course) be something that gets him very rich very fast so he can continue to live the way he does now. He has the demeanor and attitude of a partier and socialite, but is capable of more; with only slight effort he's able to make good grades in everything but math, and has been recognized as a prodigy with languages (he has learned French, German, Japanese, and knows a bit of Russian) but he doesn't do anything with this - he has contemplated no career paths or extracurricular development of these talents because shit, that's no fun. While he enjoys books and has a few categories he's particularly interested in, this has in recent years become more of a secondary interest. He does continue to independently study a few areas of interest, and secretly fancies himself something of an intellectual, though this side he rarely displays. His intellect simply serves more as a source of charm. Since he gets good grades and is in a well-off family, he doesn't really need to worry about getting into college - he mostly looks forward to it as an adventure in paradise, picturing the wild and raucous place depicted in popular media. In essence - a good goal for him would be to wake up and realize that high school won't last forever and he shouldn't treat college as a simple extension of it. However, his goal is to put off this awakening for as long as possible and to keep living aimless, for himself and the moment.
History Lewis had a childhood that was for the most part unremarkable. His parents were both highly successful business people and were often absent. He was sociable, an avid reader, and excelled with languages.
As a teenager, his parents remained obsessive over his academic success and began to try to make up for their lost time in his younger days. Meanwhile, he grew more rebellious, preferring to focus on the here-and-now and somewhat resenting their newfound overbearing attitudes. Lewis was well-liked, athletic to a degree (he enjoyed fencing, running, and swimming), friendly, and had an obvious talent for writing and an interest in history. His parents would have liked that he entered a field with a hard-set career path (and they were trying their best to advise him and steer him in that direction, when they were around), using the skills he'd picked up; he had a sharp, analytical mind when he used it, and the range of languages he'd learned since he was a child made him a standout candidate for all sorts of international work, but he just was entirely indifferent to the whole concept - he waited til the last second on everything, why should things like 'what career will I have' be any different - and butted heads with them constantly. His laid-back nature caused him to lay his school responsibilities aside until the very last moment for the most part until he was nearly done with his second year of high school. He always salvaged things at the last second.
This time it didn't work - after a lifetime of A's (with the occasional parent-dreaded B) he ended up with a bunch of C's, at best. His parents were furious, but in that way where they also blame themselves: they should've been there to discipline him, they were gone too often. Punishing him wouldn't work. They would try something a little more severe and cut him off from the friends they considered bad influences- by making him apply for a foreign exchange program in Japan in a city he'd never heard of called Sanyo. It would be hard for him to screw around when he didn't know anyone and had to start speaking Japanese all the time Why Japan? Well, his parents would be doing a lot of work in that region over the next year and would be in Sanyo fairly often - often enough to rent an apartment. They'd be out more often than not - Hong Kong, Seoul, Tokyo - but they'd be in town enough to see him. He was a little pissed that they wouldn't let him stay in the apartment alone when they weren't there, and they insisted he find a student to move in with per the program - but he guessed he hadn't exactly given them cause for trust, anyway. Oh, sure, he fought it, but he argued to no avail. His Japanese was rusty, he said, and he'd do even worse in school - but this was a lie and they saw through it. And so hen they left, he went with them. When he arrived he was different from his usual self - convinced he would hate the experience if only to spite his parents. On the plus side, maybe the girls would be into the whole 'aloof, mysterious foreigner' thing.
Description Zorro is the protagonist born of old pulp novels; a Mexican nobleman who lives a double life as a masked outlaw, fighting the corrupt government and defending the poor and oppressed - and being a playboy. From this description, you'd be surprised to see that Zorro cuts a pretty big figure. He's decked out in armor and a stylish tuxedo, gripping two sabers in his massive hands. Two eyes peak out of his helmet, the only sign of the figure within. Completing the ensemble is his flowing cape.
So you might expect Lewis's mask to be something like Zorro's old getup, the one that just covers the eyes? You'd be right, but that's not all there is to it.
Instead of Zorro's gaucho hat, he sprouts a pair of black cat ears. It's infuriating and embarrassing to Lewis, and it doesn't make sense to him (Zorro isn't fazed by it - maybe Zorro's got him confused with someone else? Nah, that doesn't make any sense!). By the second or third outing when he realizes this isn't something that will change, he'll start sporting a hat every time he goes out to face the shadows.
