Tanuki, as he calls himself, is a rigger that seems to interact with the outside world jacked into his drones. The few things others have gotten from him are the following: human, male in his late teens to early twenties, living in Seattle--either unable or unwilling to leave the place where he lives except jacked into one of his drones.
When he is forced to leave, he is dressed in a Urban Explorer Jumpsuit, with a helmet shaped like a smiling racoon dog face.
Character spoilers past this point.
In order of importance to him:
- To be able to go out in the sun, and experience things not through a robot.
- To drive the Triad out of Seattle.
- To be known as a prime rigger of his peers.
- To be able to have a boyfriend.
Born in Seattle to two metahuman rights lawyers, Tanuki, was always the sickly, small, child of his peers. He was always seemingly sick; and forced, eventually, a very young age to remain home once it was realized he had a severe, incurable sunlight allergy. Things became difficult for the family when Toshi's father was killed by the local Triad when he was working with the courts for ork rights in the slums, where the Triad had been ensuring the 'protection' of the area. Tanuki was 7, although it was a thing that he never forgot, and shaped his life and attitudes towards organized crime, but in particular the Triad. Tanuki, since he was only allowed to visit for the most part iwth people who could come visit him, found a fascination with creating and tinkering with technology.
Over a year ago, with the help of his best friend, a troll with the runner name Boned, he, in the dead of night and very carefully, moved out of his mother's house; knowing that if he didn't leave he never would. Since then, he and Boned have more or less operated in the area--getting jobs, maintaining their lifestyles and in general, done whatever it takes to remain competitive.
He currently lives above Al's Garage in Bellevue; because there is always an Al's Garage everywhere you want to be.

If Tanuki is ever seen in meat space, he is a five foot tall pale Japanese-American boy who favors blue jearns, t-shirts and has his black hair out to a shoulder length, with brown eyes, or in his Urban Explorer jumpsuit, greys and browns, with the tanuki looking faced helmet. He's reluctant to take the helmet off, even indoors--mostly because of his allergy.
However, he is generally jacked into one of his drones (his Doberman being his favorite), which are standard drones with a modification to give them the look of his name sake: raccoon dog antromorphic (or large raccoon dogs, depending on the drone) animal traits--although he kept the faux armor on the Duelist drone, for example.
Jeans, t-shirt, sneakers--if he has to go out, generally a large wide brimmed hat and his armored coat finish out the remainder of the outfit.
