Haru's Character Survey

Yeah, some answers are based on my headcanon for her.

Body and Appearance
1. Describe the character's height and build. Is she heavyset, thin, short, rangy?
At age of 14, she's 156.5cm, but ten years later she might gain a few more centimeters. Maybe around 160 - 165 cm. She's pretty athletic, graceful and flexible because she used to join in gymnastic clubs. AND NO, DERA, SHE'S NOT FAT. SHE'S SLIM BUT SHE HAS A FEW MUSCLE HERE AND THERE, WHICH IS ENOUGH TO GET YOU ALL BLUE AND BLACK.

2. How old is she?
24 years old.

3. Describe her posture. Does she carry herself well or does she slouch?
She carries herself fairly well, as she's training herself to be a woman of a high class social status.

Perfectly healthy! She always spare some time to practice, after all.

5. How does she move? Is she clumsy, graceful, tense, fluid?
She moves fluidly, like a talented gymnast she is. Her reflex is one of the best among the famiglia.

6. How attractive is this character physically? How does she perceive herself in the mirror?
By Reborn!verse standard? Attractive, but not to the point that every boy will fall head over heels for her. There aren't that many people who compliment her appearance, but she's trying to convince herself that she's pretty enough, though Kyoko, Chrome, and Bianchi are far prettier than her.

7. Describe her complexion. Dark, light, clear, scarred?
Fair-skinned, like the rest of the Japanese people.

8. Describe her hair: color, texture, style.
Her hair color is dark brown. She likes her hair to be long and straight, but after a certain incident, she cuts it short and styles it to resemble Sawada Nana's.

9. What color are her eyes?
Carnelian brown.

10. Does the character have any other noteworthy features?
According to Ranking Prince Fuuta, her three most attractive features are her eyes, dimples, and the whorl of her hair.

11. What are her chief tension centers?
... What. Is a 'chief tension center'?

12. What is the character's wardrobe like? Casual, dressy, utilitarian? Bright colors, pastels, neutrals? Is it varied, or does she have six of the same suit?
She collects all kind of clothes! She loves to mix and match them. Also, now that she takes design as her major, most of these clothes are what she designed and sewn herself. The colors are, obviously, varied.

13. Do her clothes fit well? Does she seem comfortable in them?
The ones which intended to be worn by her mostly fit her well, yes. Though there are others which are too big and loose, but she feels comfortable wearing them.

14. Does she dress the same on the job as she does in her free time? If not, what are the differences?
Nope. She's wearing suits for her job as a secret agent of CEDEF, and in her free time... anything in her closet which fits her mood.

... are you seriously expecting me to pick one?



Speech
1. What does this character's voice sound like? High-pitched, deep, hoarse?
High-pitched and, as agreed by both fans and canon characters, annoying. Only a few people doesn't get bothered by her constant "HAHI!".

2. How does she normally speak? Loud, soft, fast, evenly? Does she talk easily, or does she hesitate?
It depends on her interlocutor, but usually pretty fast. She doesn't mind being loud if she's having a 'conversation' with a certain hotheaded RHM. Also, now that she learnt how to speak Italian fluently, sometimes she will slip into said language, mostly to insert insults and mocks in her speech. And considering that she is chosen to be the host of an interview show, she's the type who talk about stuffs easily.

3. Does the character have a distinct accent or dialect? Any individual quirks of pronunciation? Any, like, you know, verbal tics?
She mostly talks in third person, has a tendency to add 'desu' at the end of her sentence (not every sentence, mind you), and exclaims "hahi!" when surprised or... well, feels like it.

4. What language/s does she speak, and with how much fluency?
Her mother language is Japanese. Her fluency in Italian and Japanese is great. She's trying to learn French now because she dreams of holding a fashion show there.

5. Does she switch languages or dialects in certain situations?
Again, it depends on her interlocutor. As she's usually holding conversations with Italian people who also understand Japanese, she will slip a few Japanese words in her speech.

6. Is she a good impromptu speaker, or does she have to think about her words?
She mostly let herself speak whatever her heart speaks and keeps the conversation going, even though it's straying from the original topic. She will stop to think about her words only when the situation becomes awkward, in attempt to break the tension.

7. Is she eloquent or inarticulate? Under what circumstances might this change?
Quite articulate. She loves to voice out her opinion, but of course she will mind what situation or condition she's in before she do that.

She enters top grade schools since young, so her intellectual is kinda above average, though she's not on the same level as the genius Gokudera Hayato.

Think on her feet.

3. Describe the character's thought process. Is she more logical, or more intuitive? Idealistic or practical?
She looks like she doesn't know any logic, but she does. It's just that... most of the time the situation isn't very logical, so why bother? Also, she's a bit idealist.

4. What kind of education has the character had?
Proper formal education like most ordinary girls have, though there are a few things which she learn autodidact.

Relaxed and enthusiastic! But of course, this is only if she gets the first impression that the new people are nice. She's very optimistic in facing new situations. Too used with dealing with those after involving herself with the mafia.

Act.

Nope.

The boys still love to pamper the Vongola girls and think that they are fragile porcelain dolls which deserve to be protected at all cost, after all.



Relationships
1. Describe this character's relationship with her parents.

Definitely heterosexual.

It's... not important, as of the moment. She thinks sex should be done with the one who you loved dearly, so she's kinda against free sex.

17. What are her turn-ons? Turn-offs? Weird bedroom habits?
Er. I doubt she thinks about any of those stuffs. She's pretty innocent, when compared to Chrome.



Beliefs
1. Do you know your character's astrological (zodiac of choice) sign? How well does she fit type?
She's a Taurus. She gets 6 of 12 mentioned traits of (or keywords which are related to) Taurus sign, namely gregariousness, stubborness, kindliness, affectionateness, creativity, and enduringness. I'd say she's more of a Taurus when compared to Hibari Kyouya, who belongs to the same sign.

2. Is this character religious, spiritual, both, or neither? How important are these elements in her life?
The canon doesn't really focus or heavily implying the characters' religiousness, but, yes, I'd like to think that she's pretty religious.

3. Does this character have a personal code of morals or ethics? If so, how did that begin? What would it take to compromise it?
Always believe in the family and do whatever can be done to help. It started years ago, back when she was only an innocent teenage girl who involved herself with mafia. Many things happened and she eventually learned that everyone is doing whatever they can to protect each other, so she feels motivated to do the same thing. To take it away? ... Betrayals, probably. Terrible betrayal.

4. How does she regard beliefs that differ from hers? Is she tolerant, intolerant, curious, indifferent?
Tolerant, but at the same time curious so she will ask questions to satisfy her curiosity.

5. What prejudices does she hold? Are they irrational or does she have a good reason for them?
None.



Daily Life
1. What is the character's financial situation? Is she rich, poor, comfortable, in debt?
Not too rich and not too poor. Like an average college student.

2. What is her social status? Has this changed over time, and if so, how has the change affected her?
Bel would say that she's a peasant. She will correct that to 'a peasant who will eventually rose and become one the ladies in high-class society (of mafia)'.

3. Where does she live? House, apartment, trailer? Is her home her castle or just a place to crash? What condition is it in? Does she share it with others?
Until before things get even more dangerous with Millefiore, she lives with her parents. Then she moves to an apartment. Both places are castles for her, and she always keep them clean.

4. Besides the basic necessities, what does she spend her money on?
Clothes! And sewing kits and other stuffs needed to make dresses and/or costumes. And cakes, though that's kinda included in basic necessities in her case.

5. What does she do for a living? Is she good at it? Does she enjoy it, or would she rather be doing something else?
Headcanon-ing her to work secretly for CEDEF. She's good and enjoy her job, yes, but the pay isn't too big, so she's a little disappointed.

6. What are her interests or hobbies? How does she spend her free time?
Cosplaying! Costumes! Cakes! She spend her free time doing stuffs related to those three objects of interest.
