  • Expression: 3 - OMG That Voice
  • Knowledge: 2 - Just a High-Schooler
  • Courage: 3 - Ain't Skeered
  • Understanding: 3 - Tough Oniisan
  • Diligence: 5 - “Just Do It!”
  • Flat Stare: A way of just looking at one that can simultaneously say “I Am Not Amused”, “You're Not Scaring Me At All”, “Don't F**k With Me”, and also on occasion, “You Die Now”. Can result in less dominant-types squirming uncomfortably.
  • The Devil's In The Details: Kazuo is very likely to think of almost all the possible ways his requests can be twisted and cover them in discussing such things.
  • Encouragements: Despite his 'tough guy' air, he is quick with encouraging words, or at the very least, an encouraging pat on the back.
  • Stand With Me!: Kazuo is willing to help when he's needed, and willing to do tasks or favors when requested, provided they don't involve him doing something reprehensible.
  • Kazuo's Western horoscope pegs him as an Aquarius. His Eastern horoscope pegs him as a Rooster, more specifically Water-elemental. Which is odd because he uses Fire.
    • Shark-tail soup and fortune cookies are foods recommended to those born in the year of the Rooster for maintaining good health.
    • The website 'tuvy.com' has things to say about those born in the year of the Rooster, and about the Water-elemental Rooster. See the rundown of the Water Rooster's characteristics!
  • He likes cats. A lot. Mistreating one is the easiest way to get on his 'IMMA KEEL JOO' list. He has even been known to destroy media that portray it—he once broke a CD that contained an anime in which a cat was strangled over a radio.
  • Kazuo doesn't have much of a sweet tooth. But one thing he does love is sour candies, the more sour the better. He's even been known to eat raw lemons (and when he can't get lemons, limes). He only sprinkles a little bit of sugar on them, and then bites right in. Yummy!
  • Different people are named as Kazuo's singing voice as are named for his speaking voice. Samples of them both are provided here. Please note, due to a dialup connection, I am unable to check and see that the whole song is there in its unaltered form, whether there is any kind of adult content, or anything of the sort. If you find that these songs have been removed or are not in their unaltered form, please let me know. As a warning too, there may be adult content in these songs, I am (as I mentioned) unable to check.
  • Jirou and Naoki are at first glance, the stereotypical punk and nerd, respectively. It might come as a surprise to some that Jirou actually reads romance novels, and Naoki actually enjoys playing first-person shooter games. Jirou claims to read romances because the love scenes are hot, and Naoki claims to play FPS games because they require strategy and planning to master.

Profile and Skills

Profile: Kazuo Yuudai is, by all outward appearances, just a typical rebellious teenage boy who lost his mother at a young age. Quiet and solemn, there isn't much about him that seems memorable, aside from his scars, and perhaps his looks (if one likes that sort of thing). He tends to come across as just another punk, if a generally good-hearted one. He doesn't seem to go out of his way to make friends, and it's possible that this is reflected in that his pool of “real friends” equals exactly two. And his intimidating appearance and the fact that he almost always has his “fanclub” with him—Jirou and Naoki—may lead many to peg him as the typical, full-of-himself snob. Though he is quick with an encouraging word, even for those he doesn't know. Kazuo tends to be a very direct, go-getter kind of fellow, preferring directly confronting a problem than beating around the bush. His singing voice is something of a secret shame, and tends to embarrass him when discovered. To that end, those who know him well do not speak openly of it.

Skills: Allergic To Bulls**t, Black Velvet Voice, Cool As A Cucumber, Don't Take No Flak, DON'T TALK ABOUT MY MOM!, How Can He Be So NORMAL?!, Just Another Punk, Mommy Issues, Not Afraid To Scrap, Scars Are Sexy, Secret Shame—Yes I Can Sing, Stonewall, Tall Dark Handsome Stranger, The STARE, Totally Not Interested, Well At Least His Heart's In The Right Place...

Combat Information
Having learned to be something of a juvenile deliquent, Kazuo has become quite good at using his fists and feet to deliver beatdowns. Add that to the martial arts training that he received in his early years, and you have a pretty effective combination. At least, effective against the common street trash....

Special: Dragon Punch—In a move straight out of a fighting game, Kazuo channels his strength—and possibly some of Sigurd's—into a super-stong leaping uppercut to his opponent.

Persona Information and Resonance
“I am thou...thou art I. I am Sigurd the Fearless, he who braved flame and Fafnir's dreadful gaze. Take heart and employ thy wits, for not every challenge can be overcome through force of arms alone!”

Kazuo's persona is based on the Norse hero Sigurd. According to the 'Volsunga Saga', he is the son of Sigmund and Hiordis, his second wife. Sigmund died when he attacked a disguised Odin, and bequeathed the fragments of his broken sword to Sigurd. Hiordis decided to send Sigurd to a foster, a man named Regin. Regin did little to raise Sigurd properly, but instead tempted him to greed and violence. Sigurd, however, was of stouter moral stuff than that. Regin made for Sigurd two swords with which he intended Sigurd to kill Fafnir with, but neither were strong enough. It was only the sword made from the fragments of Sigmund's sword—this sword came to be known as “Gram”—that proved strong enough. In fact, when Sigurd proofed this sword's edge against the anvil, it split the anvil!

  • SENSE: Determination, grit, clever plans, anticipation, 'I love it when a plan comes together', the feeling of waiting on a deadly enemy.
  • SOUND: Flames, the bright 'ting!' of a hammer striking an anvil, growling from somewhere vaguely below him, the scraping and clashing of metal-on-metal.
  • SMELL: Burning coke (as in a coke boiler), hot metal, brimstone, the coppery scent of blood.

    • Junpei Iori: Met shortly after Kazuo’s visit to the Aoba Ward, when all Hell broke loose there. Kazuo seems to like the guy. Someone who seems to have some family problems of his own is always someone Kazuo can relate to.

    • Ryouko Kiribayashi: Met with Masahiko in Sumaru. Of course, when Kazuo met her, she was pretending to be a prettyboy, so Kazuo doesn’t know much about ‘him’.
  • XI. Strength
    • Ariko Kawano: Met along with Yoh Yamagatani at Junes Food Court. A little odd, and whoa!piercings. Seems a pretty nice gal, but he’s noting some tension between her and Fumiko. Which is kind of a pity, because he thinks they’re both pretty cool, and he doesn’t want to be caught between two sides like that.
    • Masahiko Irie: Met briefly at the Port Island Station, and again when Kazuo visited Sumaru to look at night clubs in the area. Kazuo is fairly certain he can sense his ‘Resonance’.

    • Itsuka Mizuhara: Met at the Port Island Station. Looks like a student at Gekkoukan. But then again, Gekkoukan is just another high school, and he doesn’t buy into the whole ‘rival schools’ thing anyway, so it’s all good.

    • Fumiko Kohaku: The two met on a bus while Fumiko was on her way to Tatsumi Textiles to buy white silk for a kimono. Fumiko has admitted to having a Persona...and to knowing that Kazuo has one too! She has offered to introduce him to her brother, Tatsuya Sudou.

    • Nagisa Renge: Met while walking through Inaba to de-stress. He can’t sense her Resonance, but she does seem to smell of flowers for some inexplicable reason. She seems likable, honest, and very frank. All of which are traits that Kazuo appreciates in people.
