Ren is very quiet, laid-back, and insightful, but is also blunt and flirty. He likes to observe before approaching people, but is able to bounce back from being approached. He loves to flirt and play around with people, usually wanting to get them in bed. He is pansexual, and he enjoys flirting.
He is very serious about art, and can get a bit carried away when it comes to finding inspiration. He tends to shower the subject with compliments if it is a person, or he will become very exact about the placement of the subject he’s turning into a piece.
Ren grew up in the United States with his family. His family is a long line of successful people. It’s the family tradition to find what you’re good at and become one of the best at it. His mother, having gone into business, is the CEO of a popular advertising industry. His father is a famous gourmet chef, working at a high end restaurant.
His younger sister is a Basketball star, while his younger brother is a Soccer star, they’re featured in multiple magazines and articles. Ren’s older brother is a popular actor and singer, he’s been in multiple movies and even released a new album. His oldest sibling is his sister, she’s a world renowned physician, one of the best in her field.
In this environment, he was usually looked over by his parents and siblings. While looked up to by his younger siblings, they were too busy with their careers to pay much attention to him. Ren’s parents and older siblings were usually busy with work.
When he was in elementary school, he had an excellent relationship with his sister, but that faded as they got older. His older brother usually picks on him for not yet finding his talent. While he is amazing at painting, his older brother and sister look down on the types of art that “belong in museums.” They often refer to his art as his “little doodles.”
His older sister often suggested a medical field for him. While Ren’s older brother usually tells him that he’s the “odd one of the family with no impressive talent.”
So, after realizing that he was living in a negative atmosphere, he asked to move to Japan on his own. His parents had a vacation home there, in the middle of the country so that their kids could “live a normal life once and a while” and he thought it would be cool. He thought living on his own would allow him to see if he could find himself and figure out what he wanted to do with his life.
He is currently focused on figure drawing and watercolor painting, but he’s been experimenting with oil paints.
AbilitiesHe excels in most of his classes, but prefers art to everything. He’s an amazing painter, and is able to draw life-like drawings.
His favorite food is pistachio pudding with vanilla biscottis
Current Concern: His older sister sent him so many Science and Medical Training Summer Camp brochures that the mailman refuses to bring them to his house anymore. So he has to walk to the post office every weekend.
He is prone to rearranging things when agitated.
Because he lives alone, his house is usually clean and to his tastes
