u know breath of fire 3? maybe some headcanons of Rei, a character from that game? i played the game and let me tell you, he need some love :(
He kinda does look like he needs some love.
Honestly, you’re not sure WHEN you realized it, but you knew you had to talk to him. Though, with how much of a serious face he had, you had a bit of a time convincing yourself to do it.
To your surprise, he was actually very kind and gentle. He listened very closely to what you had to say, and though he was a little hesitant at first, agreed to going out with you.
Dates are wonderful, as he’s very attentive and makes sure that you’re taken care of properly. He’s prone to falling into a “big brother” mindset, and while that’s nice, you have to remind him that you’re actually dating him and not his charge. He’ll play it off, but he’s embarrassed that he does it so often.
That said, he’s very gently protective of you. Not territorial in any sort of way, but he’ll maintain a close proximity to you at all times. You know he doesn’t like for anybody to get hurt, but he won’t pull punches if you’re feeling threatened.
He’s very soft to the touch, being covered in fur, and he’s more than happy whenever you want hugs or contact. He does sometimes surprise you by draping his arm over your shoulders or pulling you into him at random. You think it might be a sort of tough-guy thing, but he’s so gentle about it you’re really not sure. All you know is that it’s great.
