Tachibana Kaname Age:
17 (Third Year)Gender:
Kaname is what you may call a perfectionist. Every key he plays on the piano has to be the right one. The tune, the rhythm, the beat, everything has to be perfect for him. One tiny fallacy while he's playing will make him frustrated. "NO- It's not perfect. I have to start all over again." Kaname's quite stern, strict, and a bit insensitive. Usually when you get him mad, his tsundere side shows. His stoic personality gives a cool aura around him, well, that's what people say. Preferred Activities:
~Playing the PianoLikes:
~Playing the Harp
~Listening to Mozart
~Being serious with things
~Being alone (Like as if I'm gonna make him unshippable huehuehue)
~He has a guilty pleasure for aprons
~Group projects (He hates being the leader)
~People who flirt with him (because tsuntsun- //slapped)
~Mistakes on the piano
Born in Osaka, ever since Kaname was a little boy, he has been taught how to play the piano by his strict father who was a former conductor of an orchestra. "I believe with much patience and practice, Kaname will become the new Mozart."
Because of his father's obsession with music, Kaname was pulled out of his school and was given a private tutor for his studies, just so he could be taught piano lessons right after. His father was very stern with the schedule he planned for his son that almost every time Kaname took a long break from playing the piano his father would slap him and scold him for being such a slacker. It was because of these actions Kaname turned out to be so stoic. Kaname loves music as much as his father does so he never complained about the way his father treated him. "It is his way of motivating me to do better..so that I'll push my limits."
Kaname was determined to become the best pianist his father wanted him to be.
In his childhood years of practicing the piano, his neighbor, Moriyama Takumi, always came to visit and listen to Kaname play the piano. His neighbor worshiped his skills and valued his time together with him, but Kaname did not feel the same. The pianist always thought of Takumi as a nuisance and a bother, because whenever his neighbor was around he couldn't concentrate on his piano lessons. He's so lucky to have such a loving family, why does he have to rub it in my face? One day Kaname got tired of it all, and burst all of his anger and irritation at Takumi.
"COULD YOU JUST LEAVE ME ALONE?!"
Since the day after Kaname never had a visit from his childhood neighbor. He was worried about Takumi but he let the thought disappear, until he found out about what happened to Takumi's family (read Takumi's backstory to know what happened.)
He felt himself drown in a river of guilt.
After years of practicing, Kaname became one of the finest teen pianists. At the age of 15 the boy was invited to play a piano solo in a concert. He was delighted to.
For the first part of his solo, Kaname played Chopin's Gallop Marquis [link] to lighten the mood before he played his next piece Mozart's Lacrimosa from Requiem [link]. In his final piece, Kaname played his favourite, Chopin's Etude Op. 25 no. 9, which is called "Butterfly Wings" [link]. It was in this piece that the audience almost gave him a standing ovation, because of one wrong tiny note that greatly ruined the whole piece. Why did he press on the wrong note? Well, Butterfly Wings was also Takumi's favorite piece. The song reminded Kaname of his childhood neighbor and all of the guilt memories he had had in the past. Without letting the audience see, Kaname started to cry. The latter stood up from his chair and took a bow before leaving the stage.
Kaname was so frustrated that he almost felt like he could go suicide. His father first scolded him for pressing the wrong key during the etude but later on congratulated him a job well done for a generally good performance. The latter did not cheer Kaname up, but the offer to be enrolled in Hoshino Gakuen did. "We watched your performance and we absolutely loved it. If you let us, we will enroll you to Hoshino Gakuen and we will give you many opportunities to perform here in Japan and even in Europe."
"Eh..If..it's worth a try..."
