PostSubject: Kiku Honda   Wed Nov 21, 2012 10:42 pm

The first post here is about the genuine Kiku, which only a few people have met outside of club hours/outside of the club. After this, the other 'personae' profiles are posted below to help everyone keep them straight/flesh them out better. You could say this is a glimpse into Kiku's strange head, perhaps? Under the spoiler tags are his relationships with his other personae.

***

Character Name: Kiku Honda

Age: 20

Appearance:
Not much is known about Kiku other than that he is about 5’5”, has brown eyes, and black hair. Occasionally, when called abruptly into the club or visited unannounced, traces of his performing personae (such as painted fingernails or dyed strands of hair) can be spotted. Other than these small, unintentional slips of character, he keeps himself as devoid of anything pertaining to his club personae as possible, sometimes showering several times during the day in order to wash away the evidence of his nightlife. He dresses casually in plain t-shirts and jeans, preferring to blend in with crowds in order to try to keep his 'connection' with his personae as secret as possible. He is slender and effeminate, but muscular due to his actual job. To the few that have met him outside of his performances and personae of Thorny Rose, his brown eyes always seem a bit dull and distant, as if he is off in his own world. When at home in his flat, he often wears a pencil tucked behind his ear and carries around a sketchpad, in order to capture any inspiration for new personae or costumes for Thorny Rose. if one was observant enough (or if one got to know him somehow) they would see that his fingers were calloused (from the sewing he does).

Customer or Club Employee?:
Kiku is a former patron and current employee, though he does not make appearances at the club as himself.

If you're an employee, what type of job do you have?
He is the 'boss' of the personae that he plays, often referred to as 'cousin', 'relative' or simply Kiku by his other personae, as if they are separate from him. He only visits the club as himself when called by Arthur, most often to apologize for Kaze's behavior. He rarely permits those in the club to get to know him as Kiku, though a few exceptions (e.g. Arthur) exist. Other than his infrequent visits to the club, he stays as far away from it as possible.

Sexuality:
Gender does not matter to him. However, since he considers himself the boss responsible for his personae, he avoids sex and anything that will get him in trouble (though that doesn't always work out so well for him). He will however, actively participate in sexual acts if it means helping keep the peace between himself and the owner, though that does not mean he is less than shy or embarrassed over it.

Personality:
Generally, he is quiet and only speaks when the situation calls for it. He prefers solitude, often using the time to create new costumes or develop his stage personae. When spoken to, he speaks politely to everyone and has been told quite frequently that it is hard to tell what he is thinking. Despite this, he is easy to converse with and will generally listen to people without complaint or hint of boredom. Although he does not show it, people that are very different from him are fascinating. He avoids sex and sexual relations, trying to appear the responsible boss of his personae though it is very clear he is quite experienced in sexual matters. The few times he frequents the club as himself, he is often nervous, wondering what he has done incorrectly to attract the attention of the owner.

Although he knows differently, he will not openly admit the club owner does in fact own him...as well as fascinate him. He refers to his other personae as his family, even when speaking to Arthur about them. Kiku acts as the mediator between the owner and his own peculiar behaviors, doing whatever he can to keep the peace (generally due to something he did that he doesn't necessarily remember all too well...). The owner, along with few precious others, manage to somehow bring out his more adventurous and fun-loving nature, which Kiku tries to save for the club rather than his personal life. Despite his seemingly nervous behavior around the owner or club workers when outside of work, he truly enjoys his work...or rather, seeing his personae doing well (which in turn means he is succeeding).

Background:
Born into a family that believed in saving money and honorable living, Kiku learned both his skill with the needle and thread as well as his acting at a very young age. Neutral expressions saved him the wrath of his parents, who constantly reminded him that he would grow up to carry on the family business of sewing dresses for brides-to-be. Secretly, Kiku began to sew his own garments, fascinated by the rebellious styles of the Visual Kei, Lolitas, punk…any style that his parents absolutely abhorred and forbade in their home. To escape the doldrums of his home life, Kiku began to create alternate personae as he completed his outfits. By day, he was Kiku Honda, the boy who helped alter wedding dresses. By night or in secret, Kiku became the sweet Lolita known as Ame (meaning ‘candy’ in Japanese), or the Gothic punk known as Kaze (meaning ‘wind’). As his parents became stricter, his personae became wilder and more elaborate, almost to the point where he began to wander the town at night, introducing himself in clubs or in back alleys as his personae. He dressed each one in a distinct style and color, and soon the town whispered about him.

Eventually, his wanderings brought him to an underground night club in his neighborhood. Dressed as his persona of a Japanese-American apathetic rebel named Nara, he decided to see what the club was all about. To his surprise, the club turned out to be a strip club, with performers that seemed to form personae like his (without the restriction of parental supervision). Fascinated by the hierarchy of the strip club, Kiku began to secretly advertise his services as a traveling dancer and performer. By the time his parents got wind of his actions, Kiku had earned enough money to leave their home and strike out on his own. He continued to travel, offering his services to anyone who found him interesting enough. However, he never stayed in one place very long, preferring to travel in order to gain inspiration for new personae.

In time, his wanderings brought him to London, and straight to the doors of The Thorny Rose. At first he simply attended as a patron, though his different outfits and personalities attracted the attention of the owner. Kiku as himself rarely visits the club, unless summoned, but to those who look close enough (or know his secret) they can easily catch little hints from his various personae. He resides in his own little fiat a few blocks from the club, though only a handful of people know where that is.

Things you are willing to do (threesomes, BDSM, etc):
Kiku is not into anything, and yet at the same time into everything. Because he is truly the man playing many parts, each part reflects some aspect of sex that he likes, or that he is willing to do. (Better descriptions for each personae will be in their respective profile)

Things you will not do (non-con, shota, etc):
Kiku as any of his personae will refuse to do anything with drastic age differences, that is, he will never have sex with someone much older or much younger than he is, regardless of the personae he is playing. The reaction of the personae will determine just how...violent...his refusal is, but so far nothing the club has done has breached his comfort zone. He also refuses to do anything...overly strange (e.g. he's not into animals, dead bodies, and a few other strange things that would make a sane person gag)

Relationships with his other (currently existing) personae:

This small excerpt is all that is known about Kiku's other two personae, Ame and Ai-chan. Not enough is known about them to compile as detailed a profile as the three above, as Kiku is either reworking them (Ame) or they are so erratic or rare to perform that he rarely has need to create anything unique for them (Ai-chan and her 'erotic career' performances see her playing the role of her career). However, if Kiku should develop them further, they will also gain a detailed profile here.
