REQUESTS AND THE RESULTS OF HIDEKI'S CONTEST COMING SOON~!
Name: Isaiah Shüßer (eye-zay-uh shoe-sir)
Race: Shark Yōkai (Born a Tiger Shark)
Eye Colour: Orange without a pupil
Hair Colour: navy blue
Exorcist Type: Doctor
Friends: Emiko, Hideki (Roomate), Rin, Yukio, Shima, Bon… most people he meets like him.
Love Interest: Single. Though he says he’d like to mate with a human, he doesn’t know how to approach women.
Isaiah isn’t human at all, though most people think he is at first glance. However, when asked, he states that he is a shark that takes the shape of a human. More specifically, he is a creature from Japanese mythology called a Yōkai, or a ‘monster’. He is a rare one, however, because he is male while most shapeshifting Yōkai are female. He was born a shark in the Gulf of Venice, though he shifted into a human one year later after he was matured in his shark form. Having been washed ashore, he was found by missionaries who took him in and raised him to speak German. He was brought up in Austria, and because he was given access to incredible education, he learned to speak English and Japanese as well, though he still prefers to speak his mother language- an odd mixture of sounds that he claims sharks communicate with.
His adoptive guardians knew of his heritage almost immediately, and decided to make him use his Yōkai powers for good. His ability to control water gives him the opportunity to summon holy water, and his flexibility (His bones are kind of bendable because shark skeleton is made of cartilage, but his is a material that appears to be a mix of both bone and cartilage) allows him to be a formidable hand-to-hand combatant. However, he rarely battles seeing as his bones are quite weak and can break easily. When he does, it’s improbable that his opponent will win against him. He was unwilling to become an exorcist but his guardians enrolled him in the cram school anyways.
He tends to be calm and collected at all times, even in dire situations. He is rarely angry, but when he or someone he is close to is threatened he spirals into a rage. He prefers to watch people rather than talk to them, and he has become insanely good at reading emotions and analyzing facial expressions. He is the only person that knows how deep the Shima-Emiko-Yukio love triangle goes emotionally, and is the only person Emiko trusts with her secrets. He keeps things lighthearted whenever possible.
