Character Information



Character Name: Shion
Character Series: No. 6
Character Age: 16 17

Canon Point: After the cave scene where Nezumi sings Elyuria's song for the first time.

Personality: Deep in his heart Shion always knew there was something wrong about No.6, the city in which he lived. His underlying frustration in his otherwise perfect life as an elite citizen caused him to open the window in a hurricane on the night of his twelfth birthday and scream out into the night; an act that changed his life forever.

Shion can be described as an idealist who, even after learning of the corruption and horror of the world, still believes human's are worth fighting for. All humans are equal, this is his key belief, he does not agree with polar extremes, does not agree with Rat's 'them' and 'us' stance. He seeks a middle way and tries to bring about equality whilst saving as many as he can.

Shion is friendly to everyone and trusts people easily, even when he definitly shouldn't. At the age of twelve he takes Rat in without even asking his name. Even when he finds out Rat is an escaped prisoner, against all social conditioning, his response is to offer the boy his supper. His only regret afterwards is that the punishment hurt his mother also. He is the kind of person who names Robot rats, reads to small children and offers them soup when they are hungry.

He won’t hesitate to help anybody even when it puts his own life in danger. He tends to take the immediately compassionate route, not thinking about the effects of his actions. This means he does things that will cause trouble in the long-term even while helping in the short-term.

Shion has a very high IQ, at the age of two he was tested and given the right to live in Chronos; the elite district, he attended the best schools. When he was twelve he was getting ready to enter the special program for the brightest minds. He knows enough medical procedure to treat a bullet wound; at the age of twelve! He does this with glee happy to be able to use his skills.

However his intellect and knowledge is limited to facts, data, scientific knowledge; things that can be summed up in numbers. Until he goes to the West Town he has no knowledge of the arts, of literature, of anything outside the strictly controlled curriculum of No. 6. He discovers a passion for reading and makes his way through many of Shakespeare’s works and the classics.

Shion has a basic knowledge of pressure points and basic self-defence but it has rarely been practiced and he is more likely to harm himself than others in the attempt. This does not stop him trying to help other people, he acts before he thinks and so can end up in situations where he needs to be rescued by the person he set out to rescue.

Usually though Shion is not violent and only believes in violence as a last resort... Unless you insult Rat; or harm Rat. Do not harm Rat. You will regret it.

Being fresh out of No. 6 and new to the West Town Shion tries his best to get used to his new life and be seen by the others as an equal and to not be merely something to protect.
