History
  • Born in 1983 in Asahikawa, Japan. Only child. Father a security analyst. Grew up in a risk-free, protected environment.
  • Existed in a very “tiger parenting” household, always pushed to do his best and then better. Learned quickly to be responsible for himself or face consequence.
  • Didn’t have a lot of time for friends, spent years doing little more than studies.
  • Went to school for business--an adaptable education--, graduated swiftly and with high marks.
  • Moved to Sapporo, got into a security team at a tech company, protecting mostly physical but also digital assets. Liked to think he was next in line for Chief Security Officer.
  • Didn’t vacation often, but a couple of short years ago a “team building” skiing trip made him regret even that one. One ill-advised and out-of-character risk later and he found himself buried crushing snow.
  • He was rescued by, of all things, a snow leopard, but did not come out unscathed for the effort despite living
  • Broken leg healed up real fast, along with scratches, no one believed him about the cat and eventually he gave up the story as a stress hallucination--embarrassing.
  • More embarrassing was sneaking out of the office one morning after his first full moon shift took place when he’d stayed after hours on his own.
  • He never did find who turned him, but he was able to get some answers from a few individuals--one of whom was a coworker, of all things, who just happened to be a part-time bear.
  • He didn’t care much for any of this, finding himself both a risk and at risk. He became less and less of a valuable employee as he scaled back and hated that fact.
  • Eventually things went strange at work. Someone broke in and stole something--something that even he didn’t know about. Something incredibly sensitive. People were killed for it.
  • A deal was struck to get it back at a price, but assurances had to be made. Several people, himself included, were moved around as ‘insurance’ but what essentially amounted to hostages.
  • Usui was removed from Japan for the first time in his life and told to sit tight in this high-end but tiny apartment in America. No contact.
  • Something must have gone wrong because he has heard from no one and he has no means to reach them--and it doesn’t seem like a good idea to make himself a target, either. Better to be forgotten, and yet...
  • With a bus pass, an apartment, and a single credit card to his name, Usui started his time in Ridgefield at… something of a loss.
  • For a long while it goes anything but satisfying. He learned more English along the way but not enough, and eventually his funds and his lease ran out, and onto the street he went.
  • He got a job as a bagger at a grocery store, and thankfully not long after he was discovered by another snow leopard, Kalypso.
  • She retrieved him and took him to the Hawknell Inn where Erik was able to give him a place to live and also lessons in communication. A good deal, frankly, and one that Usui was in no position to snub.

Other: Speaks Japanese fluently, English... is a very steep work in progress, but he's getting more practical about it
