History and Backstory

Kibou was born on 24 March 675 AD, in the Asuka period. In the earliest years of their life, they were in a samurai army, usually used as a decoy to distract enemy soldiers; Kibou was incredibly agile and quick.

At the age of 18, their father, Michi Hiroki, was murdered, which left Kibou alone. The rest of their life up until current time was spent jobhopping and being a neet.

In current time, Kibou is a reaper, but a rather lazy one; sometimes they'll even go as far as to lie to their boss about working that day, which of course is a seldom believed statement.
