Akira Tadokoro (田所晃)

Akira is one of the eight characters in Live A Live. His scenario is called "Flow". He and his sister are orphans and currently lives at the Chibikko House. 

Personalty Edit

Akira is a lazy and laid back teenager. Despite this, he can be a nice guy, but he does have a short temper. His temper drives fuel his drive and determination to succeed in his tasks and goals.

He often would procrastinate on smaller tasks, such as selling Taiyaki or helping around Chibikko House. Larger tasks, such as someone being harmed or kidnapped, would drive his anger up a notch.

Appearance Edit

Akira is a rather scruffy looking teenager that is around the age of seventeen. His hair colour is a dark brown tan, which is followed by blond highlights on his bangs. One would think he dyed it, but it’s a natural colour. His father, Tadashi, had the same hair colour and style. His eyes are an amber-yellow.

His body is covered with scars, most noticeable ones being the cross shaped one on his forehead, the slash across his chest, and the marks on his arms. All his scars are from fights. However, the scar on his forehead is where he concentrates his powers.

His outfit is something to be seen. Akira wears a long, navy blue long coat that has yellow lining on the inside. The sleeves are rolled up and worn past his elbows, where it shows his arm scars. Around his waist, he wears a skull belt buckle. He wears a pair of black pants that have white stripes on the sides of them. On his feet, he wears a pair of sneaks with red straps on them.

He seems to have a thing for studded accessories as well. He wears a studded scarf around his neck and studded wristbands. His gloves are fingerless and have raised, metal studs on his knuckles, perfect for punching someone.

Strong and Weak PointsEdit

Akira starts out fairly frail and with a lack of good abilities, however by the time he reaches at least level 13 (which can easily be done at the start of Flow) he will be good; Shadow Image, the skill gained at level 13, will be useful for the rest of Flow. In the final chapter, he falls a bit behind the others in terms of damage dealing, but is still useful as his image techniques have far reach and many have the useful secondary affect of lowering stats. Also, despite being something of a mage type character, he is very durable and can take some punishment before going down as his defenses become quite high. Due to the style of his attacks, he is good candidate for the Basic Rock because of its very high boost in IQ.
