OOC Plans: Like most personalities it will develop. He will start off as a simply protective brother, that harbors innocent feelings of love towards his sister. That love will develop into something he’s embarrassed by and will begin trying to distract himself with other girls. He will come to accept this love towards his sister, and those girls will no longer be distractions for himself, but for the public. He will then become very possessive of his sister and quite the hypocrite by not allowing her to be with other guys; while he’s with other girls.



Raikko wasn’t as accepting as his sister when it came to their family history. When he was younger it made sense to him, but once he got a chance to see the outside world, he realized how wrong it was. He loves his sister and is protective of her, but wants her to experience life. At first he thought that taking her with him was a brilliant idea, but as his feelings begin to develop for her, he isn’t so sure. He is diagnosed bi-polar. His moods going from extremely cheerful and optimistic, to furious and morbid.


Mother and father used to tell us of our family tree as a bedtime story. I used to see nothing wrong with it. I loved my sister and she loved me, it made sense for us to be soul mates. I mean, our grandmother and grandfather weren’t twins, but they were siblings all the same and thus soulmates. Our mother and father were just like us, twins, and all the same soul mates. The only time our family didn’t intermarry, was when there were two siblings of the same sex, which did happen sometimes; though not often.

My sister and I were kept isolated for a very long time. We had no other friends besides cousins, until we were twelve. Having learned how to bend at six, we were fully able to defend ourselves. I made friends easier than my sister, she was a lot more shy and liked to stick to me. She didn’t interact much with others and became very jealous if I grew too close to someone. My only close relationship was with her and it had become suffocating, so I began to pull away.

At fourteen, my sister changed to a woman, and our parents became even more overbearing. I needed space, I loved my sister, but they were pushing it into something that I realized wasn’t right in society. My sister, unfortunately, had a hard time understanding this. I didn’t know what to do, because every idea I had would end up hurting her. That is until, one of my friends mentioned Republic City. I began plotting, coming up with a way to run-away, making the plans definite before telling Kumori.

It didn’t take as much convincing as I thought, to get her to come with me. We waited for our funds to accumulate, so we could have enough money to live comfortably for awhile. By the time we were sixteen, we were ready to go. I left without looking back, holding my sister’s hand tightly in one hand, and my bags in the other. I knew I’d never miss my sick and twisted home.

Now it’s our birthday and I can’t stop peeking at her from the corner of my eye. Our ship was coming close to the port, one more second, and we’ll be homefree. A new life, where I could teach my sister what it’s supposed to really be like. I never want to see the Earth Republic again, knowing my parents have so much influence over it.
