Why, Mao is perfectly normal, despite the fact of cross-dressing and often times presenting himself as a girl. Some who find out may be so quick to presume that the male suffers from split personalities, it is a possibility but in truth that isn’t the case. Mao, more or less, acts the same whether he is prettied up as a female or not.
As for how he acts, why he isn’t the most outgoing of people. You won’t find him speaking out in crowds or party-hardying. Due to his peculiar upbringing he has lived a very strict lifestyle. He doesn’t drink, he doesn’t smoke, and he certainly doesn’t hang around bad crowds of individuals. He was strictly raised, but at the same time also mostly sheltered till his college years.
For those that see him, he often comes off as shy and distant. Mao’s people skills are lacking, even with the years he had also spent studying jujutsu and training with others, those partnered with him could often note him for a meek individual. This didn’t help him any in college, catching the eye of various girls and angering guys he never knew; but they were quicker to find out that Mao was no pushover despite his otherwise feeble personality he lets off. Still, personally he prefers to avoid violent conflicts and does what he can to get out of them; even if this includes isolating himself from those around him and focusing on his studies.
He usually isn't the most graceful of individuals either, clumsy sometimes, a complete klutz at others. Generally the latter of his mishaps tend to be when he is wearing women's clothing; which he hasn't done much in a long time the day that his father found out(maybe a few secretive events otherwise.) Though despite his few offsets, he does take great care of himself and spends time on his health and beauty. Mao naturally enjoys looking good, whether it is going out as a guy or a 'girl' in public. Hobbies - Interests:
-Dressing Up Background information:
Mao is the youngest of five and also has a female identical twin, Mamiko. Both him and his sister were naturally born within US soil once his family immigrated, his parents both working for larger corporations and as a result most of his life was either spent with private tutors, traveling with his sister, or rarely even seeing his parents given the busy scheduling. At a younger age his sister often dressed him up as her, prettying him up. Most people wouldn’t be able to tell the difference by looking at either of them and Mao could easily be mistaken for a girl when he is dandy up, sometimes even when he isn’t.
Their father never approved of such when discovering their shenanigans within their teen years. As a result Mao was pressured more from just studies and soon forced to partake in martial arts to help ’toughen’ him up and keep him away from his sister. He did learn some discipline, but it didn’t correct his own persona, being that of a timid child to begin with and from his sheltered life it was hard to interact with other pupils. Plus, most of them were a bit apprehensive towards the boy and a few even bullied him. When this lead to crossroads, his father later had Mao a private tutor to train him and straighten the child out.
This didn’t correct his gentle nature either, at most he learned to fend for himself, but that was good enough for his parents to allow him to tend a private college lifestyle with his sister. There were always those that had an eye out for him, in both a good and bad way. Girls try to grow intimate with him, guys tried to beat him up for ’stealing their chicks’ from them. Typical environmental drama that he had to deal with day in and day out. He made it a habit to keep his distance and study alone, but even still there were those bold enough to come to him and try to interact some form of a scene or another.
His mother tried to persuade for him to take college at home, with the new day and age schooling and getting a degree; but his father wouldn’t hear no part of it. It wouldn’t improve Mao’s social awkwardness and with summer vacation nearing the corner they thought on ruling him further and sending him to a different college, perhaps a public one to ’sharpen’ him better. His twin’s idea was even more preposterous, she proposed that he intended Crystal Lake for his summer vacation. Easily he could very well be guest there. She even sweeten the deal to dear father saying that he could pretend to be her, that she would provide the identification for him and everything. “If you are so worried of him becoming a girl, why not let him pretend to be me? I think that would do him some good, all fun and games and a better way of disciplining him. He could work there part time or even guest. Regardless, it will force him to be more interactive with others in more ways then one.” She added with a giggle afterwards, and with some further convincing with implying ‘nothing else ever worked before, how could this hurt,’ Mao was soon sent off to pretend to be his conspiring sister.
