Kasugano is a very pragmatic person. Extremely intelligent, he can decipher the true natures of people. However, he seldom holds regard for the feelings of others, and ends up hurting some of them due to his nature of being frank and direct, yet at the same time, cautious, wary and generally distrusting of others, and at times, somewhat cunning and manipulative, and not particularly normal mentally. He's not too bad, though. He tends to be pretty intelligent.
He is extremely talented, and uses his skills to good use. He tends to act reserved with his feelings, making him seem like an extremely mysterious person. He is something of a hikikomori. It is said that he became one after his friends shunned him from a project because they were jealous of his intelligence, which caused him to be wary of friendship, though it's clear that several other factors also contributed in that part of his personality. Also has a certain fear due to past.Race:

Kasugano was born into a noble family, which also got a large income from various businesses in Japan, associated with it. From an early age, he displayed a fair amount of intelligence, and generally learnt pretty quickly. Kasugano had always been a master at Shogi, Chess and several other games. He was also known for being friendly, kind and caring about others. However, it was around the time he was born that the family started to run into an unlucky period, from some of the businesses running into trouble, to apparent curses and strange occurrences going on, like the mysterious death of his uncle. The noble family was very superstitious, and they blamed Kasugano for the terrible troubles besetting the family in various ways.
He quickly became shunned and ostracised, as well as generally picked on, something that likewise happened at school, though for different reasons. Being halfway between humans and Raiju only made things worse.
There were numerous points when he was bullied by girls, thus helping him develop Gynophobia. Among other things, they were jealous of his family's wealth, and his feminine appearance. He may have tried to stand up to it once, though that just made things worse, and ended up being something he preferred not to talk about. He also gave up trying to get it to stop, so he kept running, instead. This kinda thing basically happened for most of his life.
One of those times even ended up with him left nearly dead in an alleyway. Of course, he ended up close to death a number of other times. The personality that had started off as confident, friendly and generally willing to express his intelligence became darker, and he became more cautious, wary and introverted. He also got torn between going out a lot so he didn't have to spend time with his family, and staying inside their main estate, so he didn't encounter anyone he might be scared of.
Kasugano was constantly being driven to do well to maintain the family's reputation, yet also constantly looked down on, as the apparent cause for some of the family's trouble. They often said how lucky it was that it was his older sister that would inherit the position of head of the family. His older sister, indoctrinated by his parents, even attempted to kill him when he was little, out of hatred for the trouble he was apparently causing the family, and generally gave him a rather difficult time. And for a considerable amount of time, he was even locked inside a dark, small room with no windows; among other places, that included the basement. Obviously, as you'd imagine, it wasn't nice when one of your siblings seemed to have it in for you, and nearly killed you several times. As one might imagine, this sort of character development affected his personality considerably.
He had few friends, and often began to stay away from the rest of the family, even his younger sister, who didn't share the opinion of the others. He spent a lot of time on a computer, and playing games, becoming quite knowledgeable with technology, including computer programming- engineering things, as well as building machines and gadgets- sometimes fixing and repairing stuff. He took to it remarkably well, using his considerable intelligence to become fairly adept at such things, as well as the fact that he often kept to himself- along with his nature and thus affinity to electricity and lightning. He was often contacted by various companies to help develop computer programmes and various other things of that calibre, becoming fairly well known in that regard. Kasugano had a habit of hacking into other people's computers, phones and technological appliances, often using them to keep in the know whilst remaining on his own. He also collected a lot of anime and manga, which he hid from everyone else, watching and reading such things, respectively, initially to pass the time he spent alone. He can also play guitar. Naturally, he was involved in the supernatural world, though he tried to stay out of it. A chance encounter with a powerful member of a Japanese demon-hunter family that dabbled in western magic, a witch named Kuesu Jinguji (Omamori Himari reference), didn't go so well, and only reinforced some of his opinions. Recently, for various plot reasons, he ended up here.
