Yamada Ichiro | 22 | Accountant | Suggested FC: Ryunosuke Kamiki | OPEN
Numbers. Numbers numbers numbers. Numbers are the only things that make sense. Mathematics is the only language that is universal. When humanity perishes and Earth is nothing but dust and even the sun has gone out, the language of mathematics will still be sung in every corner of existence. It doesn’t need words to talk about it or minds to think about it; it simply exists. Equations are not busy-work; they are the interpretation of that existence. Math is not just a class you have to take in high school. Math is the one worthwhile philosophy.
Yamada Ichiro would, of course, never actually say this. But he thinks it, and feels it. If he were a different kind of man he would probably get Pi tattooed around his arm and all over his body until he ran out of skin to hold all those numbers. But he’s not really a tattoo-getting kind of person.
Mr. Yamada does some actuary stuff on the side. He’s published a few articles under a penname. After graduating from some prestigious university, he joined the same organization his parents were part of, before him. They’re retired, now. He grew up the only child of an old, wealthy family, not that he ever spent their money on anything but computers. His parents are some of the upper-class that managed to entirely avoid the war, but they were also very moral about it. They tried to make sure others could avoid the violence, too. This kept them busy throughout most of his childhood, but he didn’t really care. Nope. Totally didn’t care.
Except isolation really affected his world-view, and he’s beginning to notice he has a kind of sheltered knowledge of existence, and that he can’t really connect to other people like a normal human.
People make him impatient, sometimes. They have too many emotions, and they complicate things that should flow easily. The world would be shit without them, though. He has huge respect and admiration for the ones that can be emotional and cheery-bright, traits he’s never quite been able to find in himself, though his father is sort of like that.
He doesn’t really like animals, except for fish.

Secret: When he was younger, he was convinced that he was a robot and no one was telling him for some reason. Now he wonders if he has high-functioning asperger’s syndrome. All he knows is that he does not function like everybody else.
Skills Mun Should Have: Actual mathematical skills and knowledge. I’m not talking mathematician here, but you should at least have enjoyed your math and physics classes. Japanese language skills would be desirable but are not required. If he ever really, desperately needs to say something in Japanese we have someone here who can translate for you.
