Fred Williams is Tamaki’s roommate, and has volunteered to introduce Tamaki to the local parks and the places where kami are likely to gather.

Fred has coaxed out Tamaki’s shy interest in K Estrella, but Tamaki hasn’t gotten up the nerve to express that interest out loud to K. (But but but wings of fire!)

Bio:

Why do you want to be a Hero?
The backwoods family shrine is boring and has terrible cellular data speeds, and the wider world is so big and so much more interesting to stretch your wings over. Tamaki does a reasonable external impersonation of a self-controlled and restrained shrine devotee, complete with blessings and ceremonies, but that’s not at all what Tamaki’s internal monologue is doing.

Who do you consider your favorite or most important influence on being a Hero?

A favorite manga series with a fire-powered hero and the urge to escape from being lean-pushed into the family business.

What do you want your Hero name to be?
Windlance

What do you want your costume to look like?

Outer layer: white kimono and red hakama (miko style); inner layer of black stretch leather (to be able to adapt to shapeshifting without destroying it every time)

How did you pass the entrance exam? What was your plan, and how did it work out?

Luring the robots into collision courses with each other and then dodging or flying out of the way; fireballs to the robots or to create landscape hazards for them to trip over

What is one great obstacle you had to overcome to be admitted to the school?

Tamaki’s the eldest child in the direct lineage of my particular family’s shrine, and the only one with dragon manifestation. Mother had to adopt a couple-generations-removed cousin with dragon powers to serve as her heir when Tamaki looked at the hero academy.

Who is your family? How do they feel about you trying to become a Hero? Do your powers run in your family? (This is fairly common

Dragon traits run in Tamaki’s mother’s side of family; they’ve been the head priests and priestesses of a Shinto shrine in the hills of Shizuoka. The head of the shrine is supposed to have dragon traits, and there was family pressure to stay and be Mother’s heir.
