Character Details


Height: 5'6" (167.64 cm)

Weight: 135 lbs (61.24 kg)

Birthday: October 10th

Likes: making friends, making people happy, his family, cute things, Halloween, conspiracy theories, alien movies, things that glow in the dark, blueberry and strawberry flavored food (because he thinks they're "rare"), cooking, dressing up as various produce,

Loves: 逆さ指揮 (Sakasa Shiki),

Dislikes: making people unhappy, being hurt, lies, not having enough money to buy people presents, crocs, papercuts, making fun of others, swing sets, Shiki being sad


Personality:

Tarou is happy-go-lucky, optimistic and friendly to others. He is easily hurt, but just as easily cheered up. Due to his innocence, trustingness and tendency to want to please people, he is often taken advantage of and pushed around.

He is bashful, but also very oblivious, so he often does not see when he is doing something embarrassing or embarrassing others. He can be slow to catch innuendos or times when someone is insulting him.

Though he is actually clever and can quickly draw intelligent conclusions, he trusts the word of others over his own and wants to please people more than he wants to be correct. As a result, he tends to second guess himself and make dumber decisions when around others.

He has blindly strong faith in others and can purposely overlook when someone is being blatantly hurtful, out of trust that they are a good person.

Tarou is always trying to make people laugh and smile and is always seeking others’ approval. As a result, he is very susceptible to peer pressure and can end up doing stupid or embarrassing things just to amuse others. He is prone to making jokes and bad puns and is usually seen as the clown or joker in a group of people.

He is very interested in the paranormal and conspiracy theories (aliens, MKUltra, unsolved murders, etc.), even though he is easily scared. It is basically Halloween every day with him. He does not like the concept of scaring or tricking people, but likes candy and spooky monsters. His conversation topics of choice can unintentionally creep people out (ie. Government figures secretly being reptilian shapeshifters).

Since he is so oblivious, he often gets in peoples’ personal space and accidentally makes them uncomfortable. Though, he is not trying to be perverted. He is just a huggy, touchy person. He is not afraid to show people affection, including through physical contact.

Though he is an extrovert, he is very socially anxious and has trouble keeping friends because of it.

He has a twin sister named Taiga. He always trusts, encourages and thinks the best of her, despite the fact that she is always causing trouble and treats him badly. He also has a younger sister named Cranberry, who he tends to spoil with affection and presents.

Tarou also spends much of his time with Sakasa Shiki, normally showing her things about human culture (though it mainly tends to be Tarou showing her current memes, jokes, food and bringing her out to places that they find fun.) Secretly, he just wants to spend time alone with her and do his best to make her happy, semi-excusing it as teaching her about human culture.


Trivia:

- He is secretly scared of going on the swings in public playgrounds

- He cannot swim.

- He tends to smell like Halloween candy

- Tarou can hold his breath for 15 seconds on average. Reportedly, though, if Shiki told him to hold his breath, he would do so "until he passed out."

- He is near-sighted and has glasses, but dislikes wearing them because he feels he looks ugly in them. He only wears them only in school or work settings (contributing somewhat to his clumsiness.)
However, after some encouragement from Shiki, he wears them on a more regular basis.

- He is accident prone, often falling, and dropping things, which is why he regularly has scrapes. Shiki tends to be inconvenienced with having to rescue him from clumsy near death experiences. This has reduced slightly since he has worn his glasses, but people still do not trust him to carry things.

- Tarou is very good at remembering things. Usually, he remembers important dates and birthdays so that he can give people presents. However, what Tarou counts as an “important date” is not always a relevant event to his friends. (Ex. “Anniversary of The First Time We Walked Down This Specific Street Together.”) His sentimentality can sometimes be mistakenly viewed as stalkerishness

- Tarou wants to be a teacher when he grows up

- The animal Tarou is typically associated with is a bat

- Tarou considers Chris to be his wokest meme friend and sometimes tries to quietly model his “coolness”

- Tarou’s hair is naturally soft and scruffy, however he fixes it up so that people might think he is cool. It can be speculated that he is modeling Chris’s spikiness.

- Tarou plays the Ukulele

- Tarou is ambidextrous

- Tarou suspects that Michael Jackson did not really die and only faked his death to escape his life of fame.

- Tarou is trans

- Tarou dots fake vampire bites on his neck with a sharpie and wears fake glow-in-the-dark vampire teeth made of hot glue.

- Tarou is written to have ADHD and BPD
