Zenitsu Middle Name/Initial:
The Fearful LoyalistAge:
Forager: Throughout his life, Zenitsu prided himself on understanding the flavors of the ingredients found around him. Quietly gathering what is needed, his loyalty to his palate is only hindered by his bumbling movements of his due to excitement.
Scout: “Being scared is great! I’ll never make a sound when the enemies are around *cries*”
Orator: Bartering from his childhood, Zenitsu became a quiet and charismatic speaker out of necessity; the tone of his voice gradually capture the ear and forces the subject to listen. Both strong and gentle, the deep timbre can coax even the stiffest of listeners into a state of relaxation
5’10” (178 cm)Weight:
168 lbs (76 kg)Hair Style:
An oddly straight, but spiky, hair style, Zenitsu’s hair matches who he is -- weirdly loyal and at the same time free as a birdHair Color:
Lightning yellow with orange tipsEye Color:
A burnished orange; some say looking into his eyes reminds them of a warm sunset flickering across the skyScars:
There’s only one; a thin scar running straight down his left back side. No one knows how he got it, though it oddly looks like a sword wound...Clothing and Accessories:
Zenitsu wears his characteristic long, flowing yellow robe that is ordained with little white triangles. Quite soft to touch, the robe is made of a light, airy fabric; this in turn allows him to move without making too much noise. Along with this, he wears a black button up and some airy black pants. Coupled with his sandals, he presents a composed picture of a person when standing still.
Buckled to his waist is a sword with a white hilt sheathed in a pure white scabbard. A family heirloom passed down from generation to generation, no one has seen Zenitsu truly wield it within any fight.
Every other article of clothing he has is just a repeat of this original outfit; it is his most comfortable after all~
“Why change something that is already at its best?” Description:
Though he is 23, the best way to describe Zenitsu is baby-faced man. By no means is he weak; though he may be fearful, he does pride himself on working out consistently. As a result, he has a quiet and contained figure that brims with a loyal power. His lack of facial hair also adds to this baby aura.
His goofy grin and burnished eyes emanating from his half-cocked head lead those who meet him into a warmth that can only be described as the summer sunset at the end of a good day. He may be awkward with his actions, but one can’t help but feel comfortable associating with him.
- Warmth felt through words and actions
- An awkward klutz that is amplified by his levels of excitement
- Fear of unnecessary fights
- Emotionally charged crier Likes:
- Sleeping late at night to the quiet lulls of the waves against the boat
- Relaxing in forests (nature is his friend~)
- Being sent on difficult tasks; adventures may scare him, but...
"what is life without a push upon your boundaries?"
- The small brown sparrow that just doesn't seem to leave him alone~Dislikes:
- General fighting -- whether that be through tongue or weapon
- Leaving anything unexplored -- “But what if it’s just a little farther out?”Unique laugh:
Baterilla, South BluePersonality:
Zenitsu...it’s hard to really say that he is a man, but rather, a boy. In the rough and tumble nature of the high seas, it is difficult to believe such a clueless and scared person would or even could survive; yet, here he stands, fearful and alive. Zenitsu never meant to come out onto the seas. Growing up on a small, abandoned farm instilled a sense of carefree that is only surpassed by the sheer fear of any form of conflict. Happiness comes easily to him as nothing invigorates him more than exploration of the next island with whatever crew he is a part of at the time. How did he turn out this way you ask?
Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that he started off parentless on the island of Baterilla in the South Blue. Zenitsu never did have the luxury of the care and affection many others received at his age, but boy could he dream. He heard of the great marines who fought against the legendary Gray Starks, he heard of how pirates roamed free pillaging and looting, and he heard of a Captain Ronx who had hair similar to his own, leading revolutionaries in their quest against the greater powers that be. Though life in Baterilla was not at all bad, these adventures began to stir a wanderlust within him.
However, Zenitsu himself knew that the similarities with these great people started and ended at just being alive; he’s no devil fruit user, much less a decent fighter. In this world full of powers and strength, his influence comes from his glib tongue. Born out of necessity, Zenitsu bartered his way into the hearts of the inhabitants of Baterilla, endearing them to both his boyish innocence and general optimism about how things could turn out into the future. There is no fight in his soul, only a good deal and a penchant to running away when mortal danger is near. On his island, it was the only way that he believed he could survive.
Yet, there are those who claim that within Zenitsu, there is a beast slumbering, waiting to bear its fangs when the time is right. They insisted to have observed him walking silently through the town at night as if in a trance, with not a sound coming from his steps. Though they called his name, there was never a response. Zenitsu claims he’s never been in a situation where combat was necessary; however, a small group within Baterilla vouch for his supposed strength..
At the end of the day, Zenitsu is always going to be on your side vouching for your good name and attempting to secure the best deal for the crew...or is he?
