traits list for suoh mikoto

i would love to, anon. note: this will be shorter than fushimi’s (which is here) not only because i know fushimi’s character best but also because fushimi is a complex and contradictory pain in my ass. mikoto is far simpler. also for you @mikotoismyking

  • violently protective, usually only towards his own friends/clan
  • works on instinct for the most part, “ Reasons don’t matter. What do you want to do?” (x)
  • lazy–probably would be a bum even without his king powers, for god’s sake he lives above his best friend’s bar and pays zero rent nor does he work
  • no ambition or goal he feels he has to reach, but is fine with that
  • charismatic 
  • but without meaning to be, which kind of confuses him
  • prideful at times, brooks no criticism of his life choices by “outsiders”
  • has a sort of “us vs them” attitude but he isn’t really aware of it
  • always tries to keep up the impression that he doesn’t care even when he cares a lot
  • weak af to children
  • moody
  • violent–loves the thrill of a fight, especially a well matched one but he’s not really that picky about it
  • it’s hard to remember when he’s being cute or babysitting anna, but he WAS a gang leader who deserved his rep–we’re talking about the guy who led an attack on a high school full of students with his sword of damocles one light breeze away from falling
  • at the same time, its not like he runs around looking for a fight
  • competitive–he’d never show it but losing in any form really bothers him
  • however not typically violent to the people he’s close to/knows (there’s one exception but kings will be kings i guess?)
  • doesn’t really hold the words clan or clansmen in any regard–as in he lets anyone who wants to join HOMRA join and anyone who wants to leave, leave
  • live and let live attitude for the most part
  • doesn’t care what people do if it has nothing to directly do with him
  • but once something catches his eye (or his annoyance), he’s not going to leave it alone
  • not ashamed of letting other people take the responsibility
  • also hates responsibility, like in any form, avidly avoids it
  • doesn’t work well with others
  • doesn’t really clash with his teammates, but given a choice he’d rather run off and do his own thing than coordinate movements
  • can’t give orders worth his life–the only order i’ve ever heard him utter is burn them and that can’t possibly count
  • hates rules to the point that he refuses to abide by even basic societal ones
  • does appreciate the people around him (although he’d never show it)
  • doesn’t understand his own feelings because he doesn’t dwell on them
  • feels things, acts on them, moves on
  • doesn’t dwell on if what he’s feeling is good or bad
  • doesn’t dwell on if what he’s doing is right or wrong
  • doesn’t really have a right/wrong line in his head–he’s got a basic idea of both but for the most part he works on what he feels/wants
  • not mean or malicious (usually, there have been exceptions like mizuchi (ew) but i won’t hold him to those)
  • no. concept. of. consequences.
  • he knows they exist and even knows what they are but has no concept of the scale of them or suffering them himself
  • usually leaves others (izumo and reisi) deal with the aftermath whether he knows that’s what’s happening or not
  • not one for words, lets his actions speak for themselves
  • doesn’t care what others think of him
  • doesn’t really hold grudges with small transgressions
  • does like people, there’s never been any indication he doesn’t like people, mikoto is a people person
  • hot-headed
  • hard-headed
  • self-destructive
  • brave
  • willing to lend a hand to a friend
  • truly does like being strong, it’s about the only part of being a king he enjoys
  • once he tasted that power, he couldn’t possibly go back to being a normal person–he refused to undo his sanctum as he was on the brink of death
  • however is also very scared of his own power
  • knew where his lifestyle would lead him but made no attempt to change it
  • believed he was who he was and therefore couldn’t change it
  • essentially, he would have been fine as a person but is an awful choice as a king and he knows it 
  • surrounded by enablers
  • 50/50 chance he listens to advice
  • acknowledges the need for him to have a “stopper” to keep him in check (totsuka)
  • vengeful
  • impulsive
  • confrontational
  • no self-preservation
  • has a pretty good grasp of his own impulsiveness and tendencies and doesn’t see a need to change that
  • also doesn’t believe he could change it if he tried
  • appreciates the things people do for him
  • unwilling to lessen their stress levels though
  • doesn’t like authority
  • doesn’t like “being told what to do”
  • holds himself answerable to nothing
  • has deep seated anger that was made even worse when he became a king and tries to keep it down except in fights
  • knows that burning things isn’t always the solution but it’s his solution and that’s what matters to him
  • hates being a king, very bitter about it actually
  • considers himself a monster
  • inspiring without meaning to be
  • totsuka’s death hurt him way more than he’d ever let on
  • was never expecting to live long, probably never expected to outlive any of his friends
  • genuinely thought that his passing would leave little to no impact–he probably knew people would be sad but had no understanding of the scars it’d leave on people both physically and emotionally

if you want to see any others, let me know. think maybe i’ll do munakata next
