Likes: Clothes, fashion, luxuries, people, reading, sleeping.
Dislikes: Unfairness, his ex-boyfriend, root growth.
Personality: Very kind and open-minded. Has motherly tendencies and often worries over others' well-being more than his own. Bashful, and has a high sense of morality. He is also very naive, curious and blue-eyed, which isn't always a good combination, and he can come across as quite selfish at times without realizing it himself.
