[ P.S. ] O yeah, & if you're not in [ profile] campfuckudie then could you please defriend this journal? I know I have a ton of you from [ profile] polychromatic still friending me & it kind of bothers me because it's like woaaaah over 100 people friending Byakubutt for absolutely no reason @ all, whyyyyy? I mean, if you're a friend of mine, then it's fine if you keep it friended. But if you're not then, like, please defriend this journal asap? Thank you.

[ P.P.S. ] 'cause you didn't defriend after three days; I just banned the lot of you @ pc characters. No hard feelings, k? K.
Eh, I'm basically only human, which means I'm liable to make some mistakes on characterization. Especially if it's the first time I'm playing said character. This is why posts like this exist. Feel free to comment & critique me on my interpretation of Byakuran; I'll do my best to listen & take in any advice you might have for me.

Anonymous comments are allowed. Flames are a no go unless they come in the form of red hots. Because, y'know, we're all mature people here. Amirite or amirite?

Hee hee, I said come.
[ Age ] 25

[ Height ] starbucks venti ( No, I actually don't know )

[ Weight ] skinny like a stick

[ Medical Info ] OVEREATS BECAUSE HE CAN, but otherwise pret. damn healthy for a mafioso boss that likes to indulge in dumpling noodles, ice-cream sundaes & marshmallows.

[ Eyes ] a lovely violet

[ Hair ] old man white/gray

[ Physical traits ] An assho-- I mean, human. With additional properties of flower power gay.

[ What's Okay To Mention Around Him/Her ] Anything & everything. Esp. things that might entertain him.

[ Abilities ] Due to Shoichi traveling to the Future and meeting two versions of Byakuran, Byakuran is mentally connected to every other Byakuran living in the separate parallel universes. This knowledge is utilized as a battle advantage: the Real Six Funeral Wreaths know about the techniques of the enemies he fought in these worlds. However, Byakuran becomes greatly weakened and needs a day to recover after using this ability. It is also mentioned by Yuni that Byakuran's powers are growing weaker over time.

* Sky Mare Ring: Granted to Byakuran due to his ability to see into parallel worlds. Byakuran is capable of firing bolts of energy from the Ring and has several White Dragons that appear to grow from it, to aid him when fighting.
* Ghost: Ghost has the Ability to drain the Dying Will Flames of all those who are close by. However, he is also a version of Byakuran brought from another parallel world. As such, Byakuran can steal any Dying Will Flames Ghost absorbs and make them his own, greatly increasing his speed, stamina, and attack power.

Byakuran's Wings

* Wings: Byakuran's scars on his back have been revealed to be space for him to grow a set of White Wings made of Dying Will Flames (however, these are possibly only for appearance's sake, as he already has Flame Boots). They also seem to be a result of looking into parallel worlds. Once torn off they grow back as a black pair capable of morphing into claws. Byakuran's final attack can be compared to Tsuna's X-Burner, only with black Flames.

Byakuran's White Applause
However, Byakuran grows roots from his back to support him during this attack instead of using a Flame "cushion."
* White Dragon: The White Dragon is Byakuran's Box Weapon. It was made with the highly advanced technology of the Millefiore Famiglia and is exclusively for him.
* White Applause: Byakuran can negate any attack by clapping his hands. This attack requires a certain degree of power to match the opponent's attack, however, as Byakuran's palms were injured when he tried to negate Tsuna's more powerful Burning Axel.
* White Finger: Byakuran simply focuses Sky Flames from his ring and launches a powerful shockwave type attack that blasts his opponent with tremendous fource.
* Transparent Giant Hand: Byakuran is able to create a giant hand which is linked to his own, to capture the enemy from a distance.
* Black Flame Attack: Byakuran black has roots shoot out from his feet and plant themselves on the ground in order to stabalize him. Next Byakuran concentrates Black Flames from his hand which rotate at an extremely high speed and then releases them as a blast.

[ Notes for the Psychics ] Man, I feel sorry for anyone that reads Byakuran's mind because most of the time he's thinking about food, obtaining phenomenal cosmic power, killing your family, Shou-chan, sending messages via flower language & marshmallows. There's also the fact that he's a cheery kind of asshole that doesn't give one whit if he kills you before lunch or after.

[ Can I shapeshift/bodyswap/spit at/step on/etc? ] Dude, go ahead.

[ Maim/Murder/Death ] Maiming is fine, murder & death are a no go.

[ Cooking ] The most cooking he'll ever do is order take-out, but he's A-OK with the idea of other people cooking for him. This is because he likes to think he has a bottomless pit for a stomach. [ Spoilers ]: He doesn't.
CHARACTER: Byakuran (Gesso)
SERIES: Katekyo Hitman Reborn!
JOB: Trauma Counselor

CANON: Byakuran first appears in the future arc of Katekyo Hitman Reborn!. Alongside the girl!child Ipheion Uniflorum (Uni-chan), he leads the Millefiore Famiglia, which is a merge of two mafia famiglias called the Gesso and the Giglio Nero. Currently, due to this merge, he is considered to be on the brink of something we like to call world domination. Also, it's said that Byakuran is the one who orders the 'killing sweep' which is the absolute annihilation of the Vongola family, as well as anyone affiliated with them (no matter how minor the affiliation is). However, even with the ruthless reputation Byakuran's acquired, he's as informal as possible, while still maintaining an air of eye-scarring conventionality.This can be seen in his particular habit of giving pet nicknames to his subordinates. He also insists on being called 'just Byakuran' without the additional –sama and likes to send Shou-chan people messages via flowers.

Between eating marshmallows and making plans to obtain phenomenal cosmic power, he likes to make random surprise calls to one Shouichi Irie. It's almost as if everything is one giant joke to him, but the congenial act is a half-truth because underneath that winsome smile he's as calculating as they come and is patient enough to allow situations to bloom accordingly (in regards to entertainment value). And with just four easy payments of $29.95 he'll come complete with ridiculously spiky white hair that may or may not be used as a weapon against any or all that oppose his therapeutic help.

Ah, it appears I'm early. Well, I suppose it's fine to do it this way. Hello, I'll be your new trauma counselor. I find that the informal approach helps to form closer relationships and I'd like very much to be close to any and all of my patients. So, please, refer to me as Bya-kun. No, really, Bya-kun is fine~♪

Oh? It appears my first patient is here. It's a pleasu-- ah, I'll have to ask that you refrain from attempting to gnaw my arm off; the uniform is dry-clean only. I'm sure you understand, yes? Uni-chan would be upset, too, to learn that I allowed a stranger to be so forward with me, but I do commend you on your hands on approach. However, I'll have to insist that you take a seat; I can't derive any amusement from this situation if you don't cooperate. Yes, that's better; I see you're finally beginning to understand just how much I want to help. Now, shall we begin ♥? I suppose your jaw falling off is as close to a 'yes' as I can get. Though, I must say it does nothing for your complexion. Now, now, don't make that face. Here, have a marshmallow; they're good for you. Now, while you chew on that, I'll start off with a series of questions. The first being: Your name?

Now when you say 'Augsadsfd brains,' do you mean to say that brains is your first or last name? Ah, neither? Then, instead, I'll call you Begonia-kun. After the flower, of course. Now Begonia-kun, what sort of trauma are you here for? . . . Could you say that again? I believe I wasn't paying attention. I apologize, I have a habit of doing that at times. My subordinate, Shou-chan, finds it rather frustrating to deal with, but I assure you it's one of the major points of my charm. I can also be quite dashing when the situation calls for it, but enough about me; this session is for yo- yes, I'm well aware that my hair breaks quite a number of safety laws, but please stop attempting to impale yourself on it. Really, if you continue to do this I'm afraid I'll have to label you as suicidal and we wouldn't want that, now would we?

Oh? It seems we do. Which is actually quite bothersome. After all, I came here to be entertained. To help, of course, by providing understanding as well as a shoulder to cry on, but it's impossible with a patient as stubborn as you. Hm, I suppose I should dismiss you on the account of your unwillingness to work well with others, but I doubt there's any harm in keeping you as a subordinate? Provided that you prove yourself worthy, of course. Perhaps by bringing me a bouquet of . . . flowers? Bear in mind that I prefer them nubile and young.

If you're in favor of this decision, please rot at your own pace.

I see. I'm glad you agree. Let's get along now, shall we~♪?

SERIES: katekyo hitman reborn!
EXTRA INFO LINKS: Millefiore Family | A ! B |
WEAPONS: Sky Mare Ring

PERSONALITY: Byakuran is one of the bosses of the Millefiore Family. He's seemingly congenial, lax & a bit too easygoing, but underneath that superficial surface he's as ruthless as they come. He singlehandedly orders the absolute annihilation of the Vongola family, as well as anyone affiliated with them ( including their families ), in an attack called the Killing Sweep. Men, women, children, all or nothing. To Byakuran the end justifies the means. Which also means that he'll use anything & everything at hand to accomplish what he sets out to do, but not without proper planning. Something his family ( the Gesso ) also follows as members of the White Spell.

But he has a tendency to push people with simple words just to get a rise out of them or for his own amusement. It's the mun's belief that he does this for more in-depth reasons. As in, to acquire more information on a person, or to break their concentration/set them off balance. Like I said before, he seems a bit lax, as in nothing seems to ruffle him, but that doesn't necessarily mean he lacks a reason for this. Always, he maintains a calm composure, while continuously looking for new sources of entertainment.

He also comes complete with a creepy sort of smile. Yeah, that one. You know which one I'm talking about.

SAMPLE RP: A thousand flowers for one family. When another member of the Vongola falls, Byakuran peels petals off of the ones that sit idly in a room that succumbs to glass. In Italy, it is the rarest greenhouse, the highest flavor of artificial sky. The only tower that reflects a garden of white orchids strategically placed to be obedient & silent, while never losing their white-washed splendor. They continue to bloom like perfect plans, perfect settings of time, while also being the lesser evil compared to the living garden he's cultivated to move, to breathe & to kill without a thought.

There is the Gesso family, Byakuran's own. White spells of moving limbs, short sharp tongues & cutting wit. Clad in white & gracefully competent enough to answer to his every call. Above the Gioglio Nero, which has a penchant for attacking first without using the more than adequate skill of observation. An opinion that Ipheion Uniflorum, with her sacrosanct eyes & pencil-thin lips, would deny with her usual, flat-line charm.

Carefully, using chalk-white confections, Byakuran spells her name out on top of a coffee table.

Yuniflora of the Gioglio Nero, the second passable section of his plans. Byakuran remembers their first meeting, the lingering scent of bruised spices & the dangerously empty dreams precariously balanced upon both their shoulders. But he forgets the memory just as quickly as he remembers & erases her name with a brush of his thin, casual fingers. Old memories sustain nothing, he reminds himself, while rearranging the pieces.


"Hmm?" Byakuran pays no real attention to the distraction. From the corner of his eyes, he merely observes the distinction between the wall & Leonardo Lippi, while nudging a letter back into place, "Didn't I say to call me by my name?"

"W-well, yes, bu-"

"Then, do so."

There is no lilt, no tone, no gesture as clear-cut as Byakuran's simple words; a warning, if anything, & a reminder that to survive within the ranks of Millefiore's white spell, Leonardo is to keep Byakuran happy. As well as do anything & everything that is asked of him. It is the only function Byakuran requires within his famiglia; the rest is an expectation, a knowledge of strategic skill. Battle is unnecessary & left up to the savage weeds grown from Ipheion Uniflorum's garden.

"Y-yes, Byakuran-sa-- Byakuran."

"Ah, that's better."

Without further word Byakuran returns 80% of his attention back to the table.

Shouichi Irie, captain of the white spell 2nd rose squad.

Perhaps it's time to send Shou-chan another message; a sea of thornless white roses. Perhaps this time Byakuran will accompany these roses and personally rid them of all their thorns. Choices. How many choices are left to him now? Time grows pale, almost baseless, as he takes apart Shouichi's name. One by one, until the last he places against his lips. The flavor holds no concern; it tastes of vanilla, spring and crushed threads of mint.

"Leo-kun, where is Shou-chan now?"

"U-uh, r-reports say that he's . . . disappeared."

A click; the confection tears in half between Byakuran's teeth; straight lines that lack confusion. Leonardo flinches, fingers tense & veins frozen as he waits for death, maybe an injury that will cause shredded bones to slowly decay within a pool of lemon & solicitous salt. He's heard that Byakuran is sometimes creative with his punishments, just as he's generous with his whims.

But, showing no signs of distress, Byakuran merely smiles. Yes, Shou-chan's absence throws his thoroughly concocted plans awry. Yes, Shou-chan will eventually answer to him when found. But, for now, he has time. & Shou-chan has always held a special place within his heart. The suspense kills him, of course; waiting isn't a function that dwells comfortably within his natural habitat. But he's learned that patience is a precaution; a symptom of victory. Which is why he makes glib jokes that slide off his tongue & refers to the unspeakable as if reading tangible minds.

"If it's Shou-chan then it's Shou-chan," Byakuran finally says, while rearranging the pieces once again. Checkmate.

Ah, the most recent policy. Complicated, yet just as deadly as the killing sweep he remembers organizing against the Vongola. He smiles again and closes his eyes before stretching against the couch with a sigh. Yes, he has time.

"I'll see to the situation personally; you can go now."

"T-thank you, Byakuran."

POST: Oh, this doesn't look like the main base. It's interesting enough, and it helps that I'm bored. But, since an urgent situation has come up, this method will do. Usually I'm against such things, but perhaps some of you are familiar with Shou-chan.

If you've seen this person, please direct him to Byakuran. And tell him that he comes bearing white tulips*. After all, it's been awhile since we've seen each other.

And I do hate quarreling with him.

NOTE: In flower language, white tulips mean forgiveness*

ADDITIONAL NOTE: Stop copying my app & stealing my damn bases.
