Blade Under Mask: Kabuki by White-Mantis Blade Under Mask: Kabuki by White-Mantis
:bulletred: EN :bulletblue:

Name: Asazaki Tetsuo (朝崎鉄男)

Species: Anthro Luna Moth (Actias luna humanus)
Body type: Slim

Tetsuo is a male anthro luna moth with a potentially rather feminine appearance, given the right clothing and makeup. This attribute serves him well in his occupation as an onnagata - a male Kabuki actor who plays female roles - but despite his appearance, Tetsuo isn’t by any means ‘feminine’ in personality. He’s a determined young man and is usually the one who takes the lead when problems appear. He’s sarcastic, with a snobbish attitude toward those he deems to be 'lesser commoners', ‘ignorant’ or ‘stupid’ people, especially the more rowdy customers that request his sister's presence at parties and tea ceremonies. The only people to whom he’s gentle are his adoptive family: Asami, his mother and owner of the Asazaki geisha house (mainly because he also feels indebited to her), and his younger sister Nae, who he’s very attached to.

Despite mainly playing female roles, Tetsuo will play male roles as well. The clothing shown in this drawing is one of his male Kabuki outfits. His daily, basic clothing is a simple kimono.

FYI, he's not a femboi, he's not submissive and girly, he's strong and confident. He's also one of my favorite characters. The caterpillar is his form as a child. <3

PS: Everything here, while inspired by Japanese culture, is also stylized, so don't expect to see extremely accurate things!

Name: Asazaki Tetsuo
Espécie: Luna Moth Antro (Actias luna humanus)
Tipo físico: Magro

Tetsuo é um mariposo com uma potencial aparência feminina, dadas as roupas e maquiagems certas. Essa característica serve-lhe bem em seu trabalho como onnagata - um ator Kabuki masculino que interpreta papeis femininos - mas, apesar de sua aparência, Tetsuo não é nenhum pouco "feminino" em personalidade. Ele é um jovem determinado e é também quem geralmente toma a liderança quando problemas surgem. É sarcástico e possui uma atitude esnobe para com aqueles por ele considerados "inferiores", ignorantes ou simplesmente idiotas, especialmente os clientes desordeiros que requisitam a presença de sua irmã em festas e cerimônias de chá. As únicas pessoas com quem Tetsuo é gentil são sua família adotiva: Asami, sua mãe e dona da casa Asazaki (mais pelo fato de Tetsuo também se sentir endividado para com Asami), e sua irmã mais nova, Nae, por quem sente uma grande afeição.

Apesar de interpretar papeis femininos primariamente, Tetsuo também interpreta papeis masculinos. As roupas utilizadas por ele nesse desenho são uma de suas fantasias Kabuki masculinas. Sua vestimenta diária é um quimono básico.

Ele não é um "femboi", e muito menos submisso. Ele é forte e confiante. A lagarta é sua forma infantil. <3

PS: Tudo aqui, apesar de inspirado na cultura japonesa, é muito estilizado para refletir minhas preferencias pessoais, então não esperem extrema precisão!
