Bender type: Earthbender
Possessing dark blue and blue eyes, Masaaki has a seemingly serious look. This, however, clearly clashes with his personality. Masaaki stands at 5'11 and has an average build with just a slight amount of bulk. His clothing is typically casual and often clashes in coloring, as he has little to no fashion sense.
Masaaki is simply a carefree person who doesn’t take much all that seriously. His optimistic personality often leaves him looking very clueless at times. However, Masaaki is the type that likes to make mistakes, so he can correct them. He’s a bit of a klutz. He’s also quite disorderly.
Masaaki’s positive disposition leaves him to be very patient and gentle around others. Although he was quite popular as a kid, he never cared for the attention. He had a few close friends, but nothing more. He’s normally very content and peaceful around others. While sometimes he is inept in his understanding of situations, he makes up for it in his observational and social skills.
Despite his rough past, Masaaki manages a friendly and inviting personality. He doesn’t give up on life because he knows it is not what his sister would have wanted. Though it still pains him to think about Sakura, he has grown past the incident of her death in a healthy way. Unfortunately, there are still things that trigger Masaaki’s most deep mourning for his sister. One example would be cherry blossoms, the meaning of his sister’s name.
Born to a simple middle-class Earth Republic family, Masaaki learned early on in life to work hard for the well-being of himself. It was to give effort, or get out. His parents, while strict, were quite kind when Masaaki did the right thing. Due to this, Masaaki grew up being properly disciplined by his parents the majority of his life. He always paid attention in classes at school and did the things his parents told him to. It was simply his way life, and nothing else seemed right.
Once he was 6 years old, he discovered his earthbending in a small incident involving a few smashed plates and an earth bomb. His parents, while agitated about the incident, were happy about his newfound abilities. Soon after, his mother became pregnant with another child. 9 months later, a darling little girl was born. Her name was Sakura, and Masaaki was thrilled to be an older brother to her.
Masaaki grew to be an independent young man, but he still loved his sister very much. Being six years apart, Sakura and Masaaki had an oddly loving connection. They did a great deal together. Sakura never gained any bending capabilities, but that didn’t stop the two from practicing together. Most people they knew treated them as a package, as if one could not be seen in an informal situation alone. Masaaki was happiest with life at this time.
When Masaaki was 18 years old, his house was robbed by people in the dead of night. Unfortunately, Masaaki and Sakura were out of the house, and the thieves killed their defenseless parents. When the pair returned, they found the house in shambles with the robbers still there. In rage, the two blindly attack the thieves, even though they were outnumbered 2 to 5. In their reckless attack, they could sadly not hold their own. Sakura was killed. Devastated and desperate, Masaaki fled his home, alerting any officer he could find immediately. Eventually, the cops were able to track down the thieves and capture them along with what they stole. Masaaki was given what the thieves had stolen such as money and special items. Masaaki was able to buy a new, smaller house for himself. He lived alone here for 2 years and decided he needed to escape the Earth Republic altogether.
Masaaki had heard through some work friends about the idyllic Republic City that was searching for new citizens. With nothing to lose, Masaaki saved up for both an apartment and a ticket for his ferry there. His life finally felt like it was turning back around. After 2 depressing years in the Earth Republic, he could now flee for good. His ferry trip lasted a week or so. Seeing the statue of Aang felt so liberating and freeing to Masaaki. He was ready to begin a new life.
