CHARACTER INFO

Character Name: Kaito
Character Canon: Vocaloid

History: (Speculation based on details shown)

In this version – Kaito was among many programs that had spontaneously gained sentience as a result of a subconscious wish from their programmers – and with some programs, their fans. At first, the AIs kept their sapience a secret, in fear of what would happen but eventually curiosity and loneliness drove them to make contact with their creators.

News soon spread of the existence of self-aware AIs, but the fear they expected never came – instead, they’re created as curiosities, put through Turing Tests and other examinations to prove their self-awareness. As they were music programs their awareness made them idols.

Coincidentally, a biomedical tech firm had announced plans to experiment with uplinking – to give people who are quadriplegic or suffering from debilitating, incurable diseases new bodies, but as there are many restrictions on human trials and the risk of the experiments, they try to find alternative means of testing. Many of the AIs, including the Vocaloids quickly volunteered – after all they’re not considered human yet by law, and many wanted to experience the ‘real world’.

Test bodies were created – most of the body is organic cloned material though the ‘brain’, and the nervous systems are electronic by nature in order to make mind transferring possible. The it seem they succeeded without a hitch, but as this was a major procedure with long lasting consequences, so the AIs were assigned guardians to watch their progress, and are ordered to attend mandatory examinations to assess if there is any problem with their bodies that would need to be corrected before they moved ahead in trials.

During the trial, Kaito and his ‘siblings’ learn how to get along in the real world, and experiment with the simple pleasure of living.


AU History: Kaito was a swablu who spent most of his days exploring and singing in the woods, and at night huddled close with his siblings.

The carefree days ended when he accidentally disturbed a beedrill’s nest and was overwhelmed by the swarm. It just happened that a human came by and discovered the poisoned, injured pokemon and took it home to nurse it back to health and released him back to the wild once the swablu was strong enough to fly.

He was overwhelmingly grateful towards the human and wanted to meet him again, but his memory was fuzzy as to who helped him or where they lived, but he wanted to go back and thank the human and went to the forest shrine for guidance and suddenly found himself in human form.

With the discovery of this ability, he headed straight into Union, not sure how he’ll find that human, but he’ll try regardless.

Canon Personality: Kaito is on the surface quite happy-go-lucky, is more than a little bit ditzy, a penchant for being the butt of jokes, and he’s extremely naïve on several matters concerning life. Some may consider it odd considering his origins as an AI but he is very emotional, and a romantic at heart, adoring love stories and likes to act like a gentleman towards girls (Rin doesn’t count, she’s a tomboy, not a girl), and the mysterious “Master” that he has a not-so-subtle crush on. He is quite extroverted and is easy with laughter and always looking out for his loved ones.

On the flip side of things – as he is pretty emotional, Kaito gets upset easily and tends to exaggerate annoyances into complete disasters. Sometimes he can come across as a clingy jealous lover/friend if he feels that his loved ones are ignoring him in for someone else – he hates being alone to the point it could be considered a full-fledged phobia. He will even stick with people that sometimes treat him badly long as they show love and affection.

On a less serious note, partly due to his origins as a program, he has a tendency towards being a one-track mind. Kaito will stubbornly deny his love ones might have done something wrong even with overwhelming evidence, and will protect them from harm no matter how dangerous things are. He also approaches Ice Cream with the same zeal of a Sommelier towards wine, and would in fact eat it for every meal if no one stops him. He takes his singing just as seriously, practicing every day, and always dutiful to the rigors of recording, always on time, giving it his all no matter what, only shirking if his love ones are in trouble.

Kaito can be quite scatterbrained, though it doesn’t mean that he’s completely stupid, in fact, he’s fairly intelligent but in a rather clueless manner, he knows the facts – but he can’t quite put two and two together. His understanding of the world is rather scatter-shot, showing surprising depth in some areas (Computer Programming, Music Theory, and Mythology), and complete ignorance in others (i.e: Politics, geography etc.). It does not help that he’s quite trusting and will believe what people will tell him, and his over-reliance on “Great Teacher Google-San” for answers.

He also lacks common sense, once he possesses an idea it becomes extremely hard to shake him of it, no matter how hair-brained it is.

AU Deviation: As in this AU he is a swablu-shifter that was born as a wild pokemon, he is naïve because he is unfamiliar with human customs (instead of naivety as a program), and will believe anything that anyone tells him.

Secondly, he is far more willing to fight if he feels that he's in trouble or he sees someone he cares for is in danger, and won't let up even if he's hurt.

And thanks to his run-in with Beedrills, he is terrified of them and will either flee or become paralysis with fear in their presence if he cannot escape.

Thanks to his curiosity, he now has outright a magpie-like tendency to look at shiny things and if there's no obvious owner, he will grab it to take a closer look at, and try to test what it's used for - though more often then not, he ends up getting it wrong, such as using a fork as a dinglehopper.

Canon Abilities: As a singing program, naturally his singing ability is quite good, and he has an excellent ear for discerning different types of sounds and notes, so if he heard a sound before he will instantly recognize it..

Enlightened Abilities: Kaito is a shifter with Swablu’s typing: Flying/Normal (eventually evolving into an Altaria shifter which is Flying/Dragon).

He still has an excellent ear for sound like his canon self, but otherwise his abilities are entirely that of the Swablu/Altaria line.

Starter Pokémon: Fletchling

Notes/Special Considerations: N/A

Third-Person:

Sleeping alone was a new experience for him. From the moment he hatched, he was always a short glide away from one sibling or another when night falls, and the flock always huddled together for as much warm as for protection.

First Kaito curled up in bed, shivering, wrapping his muffler around him - then the strange sounds kept him awake, soft groans (which he later learned was 'the inn settling'), a distressingly buzzing-like snore from two rooms down - he wondered how the occupants in the neighboring rooms managed to sleep with that noise! - even the rustle of his sheets kept from drifting off.

Giving up for the night, he pushed himself off the bed, trying to ignore how his heart was racing from instinctive worry, he's not a child anymore and he can be fine by himself - he just needs to convince himself of that. Just as he was about ready to give up sleeping like a human for the night, a soft, almost echo-y tap drew his attention to the window.

A fletchling perched itself on the windowsill and cocks it's head at him. Kaito's face broke out into a wide grin as he recognized the pokemon and let it in. "Perfect timing, friend! I was getting lonely here," He whispered with a mix of excitement and relief. "I never expected things to be so different." He reached out, stroking the bird on it's head.

Even if he still can't sleep, he suddenly feels less anxious about.
