Self absorbed but not self important - Teppei takes an enormous amount of pride in his appearance. To the point where if his carefully manicured pompadour is knocked loose, it leaves him distraught. If his appearance draws any derisive comments, he is known to quickly devolve the situation into violence, although his temper is otherwise mild at best. Beyond this volatile self adoration, Teppei is fairly level headed and positive. Irresponsible in most other aspects of life as well, he is not so much reckless as he is willfully ignorant, usually running from situations he cannot solve through the use of his fists. When backed into a corner, he can rise to the occasion, although he will flake out the moment he can.
Perhaps most exemplified in being a deadbeat dad, he is more than willing to take part in the 'fun' of an activity before ditching the difficult. More than capable of spending the majority of his time getting drunk and brawling, he has a seemingly singular acknowledgement of responsibility in his relations to the Yamaguchi-gumi Yakuza syndicate. Being far closer to a one-sided relationship that it outwardly appears, his attitude is reserved when facing it's connotations in public. This does not prevent him from admitting to his own personal flaws, seeing his own admittance as yet another way to shirk responsibility. When further mentally challenged in this regard, he has been known to - unsurprisingly - run away, or fight.
While his overall outlook and mannerisms can seem immature, he can be found dispensing nuggets of surprising wisdom to anyone who seeks out his advice. Nothing of a good parent, he still seems to take some desire with mentor-ship, if only in passing. Teppei possesses, in some small quantity, a streak of deceit, well hidden enough that his motivations are largely unknown, if not misunderstood. To speak nothing of his own conviction, his desire for eventual revenge has been held close and quiet for a decade and a half. From perception, one might otherwise assume his relation to the Yakuza to be purely monetary.
Yoked. Jacked. Ripped. By and large, Teppei is defined by his intensive musculature. That and his rather old fashioned, if not distinctive, hair style. Exceedingly long and thick black hair bound into a pompadour, it crests with excessive care and maintenance. Reflective, if not outright dazzling in direct light, oil based product lines every spot of his scalp. Otherwise possessing fairly defined bone structure, his face could be described as 'striking', although his teeth are long stained yellow. Dressing rather bare, he does not own a single shirt, opting instead for a large, fur-lined black jacket. Basic sneakers and jeans otherwise decorate him, a locked amulet dangling from a thin chain on his neck.
Without much scarring, the conditioning of his hands are a notable exception; thick welts and bounded knuckles showing for decades of use and abuse. Tattoos are similarly absent, although there is evidence of a laser removed back tattoo. Having such high standards for self care and appearance, his skin is rather soft, years of lotion and exfoliation giving him the glow of someone much younger. This is betrayed upon finer inspection, crows feet starting to take roost on his eyes and wrinkles deepening in his forehead. Similar inspection can note the marks of laser hair removal on his chest and arms, betraying any claims of being naturally hairless.
Born to Mistumori Yuusuke, the thirty-ninth head of the Mitsumori family, tradition and expectation for the family's business of butchering was instilled all but from birth. Unfortunately for his father, Teppei was notably unwilling to learn, or even participate.
The early teachings that he shrugged off seemed to embolden the child as he'd enter school. Having developed fair mental acuity before other children, he'd turn to acting out in boredom, becoming the rowdiest of his elementary school by the age of six. This led to disagreements at home, along with further attempts from his parents to correct the behavior before it mounted into more trouble. To their chagrin, these attempts would largely prove fruitless at being productive, instead creating a divide between the boy and his parents.
» Shimofuri no Utsukushi-sa: Marbled Beauty (霜降りの美しさ), a meat cleaver forged in the early years of the Edo period. Rumored to have belonged to Tokugawa Ieyasu's personal butcher, it is a long standing family heirloom. The metal consists of ancient pig iron, forged in part with the blood of Hollows of the era. The handle was replaced with newly varnished pine wood in the twilight years of the Meiji era, the family's name carved into either side. The blade has no significant marking or appearance, a singular hole bored on the end opposite its edge. Of significant craftsmanship, the cleaver does not show its age in the slightest, and could be mistaken for a modern day piece of work if not for the reverence it is given by the Mitsumori family.
» Seven Stars Real Rich: Teppei's preferred brand of cigarettes, his jacket can be expected to contain anywhere from one to three packs at any given time.
» Street Brawler: Not traditionally trained in combat, Teppei has experienced more than enough violence to be a fairly capable self-taught brawler. This is mostly comparable to boxing in fundamentals, possessing some capable enough footwork and devastating striking power with his fists. The brutality of his attacks is not to be understated, being most at home when he can utilize the environment around him to fight. Be it braining someone on a fire hydrant, slamming them through glass, or making them bite a curb, Teppei does not fuck around. This is further reinforced by his favor of grabs and throws, making the use of another body more than common enough to be feared. Kicks, knees, and elbows are notably less often used, headbutts being particularly rare - a personal refusal to ruin his hair.
» Amateur Meat Cutter: Nothing comparable to a swordsman or even a skilled butcher, Teppei can still swing a cleaver with some purpose when he wants. Harsh, heavy cuts that lack much of precision against mobile targets, but do what they intend to when they hit. Requiring rarely more than a single swing to sever large hunks of meat, he makes up for the lack of accuracy with some higher level of efficacy.
» Fullbring: Tracing back to the Nara period, Teppei's ancestor was born under the traditional conditions that erred for the creation of Fullbring. Roughly forty-one generations later, the talent to manipulate souls has been taught from parent to child for over a millennia, passed down with tradition at the age of ten. In line with this tradition, Teppei lacks in natural talent and raw aptitude what he makes up for with experience. Beyond the use of his own particular abilities, this is more or less absent, only showing some mild skill with higher-speed movement and short periods of delayed falling when jumping.
» Pure Fullbringer: Acts of Worship (Mikumano Moude) is the ability to draw out Teppei's soul through his muscles. Activating this fullbring requires nothing more than exerting his spiritual pressure, augmenting his physical attributes. Vain as he is in regards to his appearance, this augmentation is only as worthwhile as views himself. The more skin he's showing at any given time, the more impactful his fullbring is. Traditionally shirtless, it acts as a (120%/1.2x) modifier, stripping his jacket further increasing it to (150%/1.5x). In the incredibly rare event he should be stripped of his pants, it further bolsters to (180/1.8x%), with full nudity pushing him to a peak of (210/2.1x%).
Taking after his vanity, he can further draw out individual talents of his body through various techniques.
Fountains in the Rain: The rarest actuation of Acts of Worship, Teppei believes that a grown man's tears are a true show of character. In the event that he is brought to tears, he can draw the soul from their compassion, sadness, or even celebration: monstrously raising his abilities (X0/0.x%) for a three post duration. A near sacred act, its power cannot be drawn on more than once per thread, "tears running dry". When it does end, Acts of Worship has it's total output lowered by (X0/o.x%) for the remainder of the thread.
Raisin Bread: Food allows for the body to be restored, good food all the better. By pouring his energy into foodstuff as he eats, Teppei can restore fatigue and wounds at an accelerated rate. A food's quality does not tend to matter as much as the perception of the food's quality - ie, price. An expensive, multi course meal at a fine establishment can restore broken bones and large gashes, while a convenience store piece of raisin bread will only act to restore some stamina. The amount of spiritual energy is similarly taxing, scaling as the food's price would.
Sword: A purely offensive technique. Drawing not only the soul of his muscles, he draws out entirely the power of his fist. A singular strike's power is augmented an additional (450/4.5x%), an explosive surge of spiritual pressure released at impact. Throwing multiple in rapid succession piles up excessive recoil, his limit generally being three 'Sword's per arm per thread. Pushing past this limit can cause permanent damage, rupturing the muscles in his forearms and shattering the bones in his fists. This further lowers the output of 'Sword' by two-thirds, down to (150/1.5x%).
Sea and Sunset: To allow the beauty of nature to reflect off his muscles. Comparable to Hierro, by striking a bodybuilder's pose Teppei can temporarily magnify his spiritual pressure to a monstrous level and withstand brutal attacks. During this, his skin becomes shiny, as if covered in oil. For one post, his durability is increased by (300%/3x), but as an expression of his muscle has no effect on his clothing. To no surprise, this act is somewhat strenuous, becoming (30%/.3x) less effective each use in a thread, eventually becoming worthless to even attempt.
Cigarette: A heavy smoker from youth, Teppei can replenish his spiritual energy via the simple act of smoking a cigarette, drawing out the soul of the memory of his first toke. Far from a full restoration of energy, it takes a full pack to restore a fourth of his total reserves, and only if his preferred brand of smokes. In the case of smoking another brand, the restorative nature is noticeably diminished, being roughly (30%/.3x) as effective.
Martyrdom: A last resort technique that can only be activated on death's door, costing Teppei his life in the process. Also requiring a fairly strong bond with a target, Teppei draws on the entirety of his soul and their connection, passing on a (temporarily) exceedingly powerful version of Acts of Worship to the target. For the remainder of the thread following his death, the target will be able to act as if they possessed the power of a fully nude Teppei, suffering none of the drawbacks for technique repetition. Following the thread of his death, the target gains the general powers and abilities of a Fullbringer, but require training to once again access the powers of Acts of Worship.
» Inherited Fullbringer: Hakanuma's Avenger (Hakanuma no Abenjā) draws the soul out of Marbled Beauty, the Mitsumori family's heirloom. A clad-type fullbring, the act of drawing it out binds him in a butcher's apron, making it particularly poor in conjunction with Acts of Worship. Limiting the output of the previous technique to (X0%/X.Xx), his strength with Hakanuma is noticeably lesser. With training, he could draw further power from the cleaver to compensate, but currently lacks the skill to draw out anything but it's base ability.
Butcher's Grace: An ability born of necessity, pre-dating most meat preservation techniques. Out of the desire of its original owner and craftsman, when drawing on the Fullbring, the cleaver preserves as it cuts. Generally, this doesn't benefit in combat, aside from stopping regenerative abilities. Its true purpose is that to store and preserve meat, allowing it to have an infinite shelf life. Further more, it allows for the collection of grisly 'trophies', a severed head incapable of dying. Or, with non spiritual beings, even speak - the lack of lungs reducing them to faint whispers at best. The ability can be easily and simply cancelled by 'cooking' the meat, although exposure to fire in general fulfills this condition easily.
