★ Personality:
    Sho is one of those kids you'd silently yell and angrily shake your fist at in a library for being too loud. A living ball of energy! You could say, he sometimes just gets so carried away with everything in his own little world he comes off as a little inconsiderate? He always does everything with enthusiasm even when it's something he hates. He actually puts in more enthusiasm when it's something he hates! Hoping to convince himself he's having fun.

    You have a challenge you say? Sho will stop at nothing to win. Sort of. Usually, after much failed attempts he'll throw a tiny fit and say he quits. Only to be found soon after trying again. Heck, he once spent ¥5000 on an arcade game trying to get his intials on the highscore list (only to fail)! He has very little self control and succumbs to temptation easily. The sort of person who'd get scammed out of all their money by shady business men.

    Sho's perspective of the world is rather pure though I wouldn't say he's innocent. He's a pretty optimistic person and often thinks the best of people. Though that's not something he's really proud of. As dense as he may come off as he's well aware that there are a lot of bad people on the earth who do really bad things...but he honestly just has a really hard time believing it? Anywho! Sho's a pretty social person. He can casually start talking to you, acting like he's known you his whole life. He's also thick-skinned enough to ask strangers to lend him money for arcade games.

    At first glance it seems like treats his friends pretty much the same as everyone else 'cept, whenever he accomplishes something he's proud of (silly things like not blinking for 3 straight minutes) he likes treating his friends to celebrate. He always wants to celebrate everything with his friends and people important to him, though he may come off as a bit clingy. Sho isn't the type to get angry easily, though even when he does the most damage he can do is give his face wrinkles from scowling. Often, after a good tantrum he almost completely forgets why he was even angry in the first place and continues on as if he never threw a fit in his life.

    TL;DR: All in all Sho is a lively, thick-skinned boy who just doesn't know when to quit.

★ History:
    Sho was born and raised in a village bordered by a river in the countryside. This village, as it was surrounded by a river, constantly flooded whenever the river would overflow (usually from rain). This never bothered any of the villagers though! In fact, they adapted quite easily. They raised their houses and other buildings on stilts, villagers mostly traveled by either canoe or swimming through the water, plus the water was pretty clean. Most children from this village learned to swim at a young age, they also considered the kids who still used canoes to get around (because they didn't know how to swim) as "babies". Sho of course was no exception, his father had taught him how to swim when he was around 5 years old.

    Somehow a new trend had started amongst the village children. A challenge for only the bravest of the brave! Whenever the water level lowered down enough for the river to be visible, they would jump in and swim, fighting against the current. Whoever could swim the furthest was proclaimed water god of the village! For they were the ones who had most power against the waters. Also, all the kids would have to serve said god as prize. Of course, like many of the other children, Sho constantly strived for that water god position. But, well, Sho was more or less one of the scrawnier kids. He'd constantly get blown away by the currents! The big kids would always have to swim after him and make sure he doesn't drift off into the ocean or something!!! Sho never gave up though. Even when it was discovered that the whole challenge thing was actually just a ploy for the big kids to use the smaller kids as little servants, Sho kept trying. Sometimes getting further than last time, sometimes getting nowhere at all. It became more for the swimming itself rather than some fake title.

    Along the way, Sho learned different swimming styles, techniques and such (most at an amateur level, of course, since most of what he learned he picked up from the older villagers or made up himself). He was pretty much the only kid in the village who kept swimming against the river current and had long ago broken the "water god challenge". But, as he expected none of his peers really cared anymore! The lot of them were all obsessing over their middle school lives. Their problems consisting of: dating, make up, exams and gross hormones, never forget the gross hormones. There also was the problem of high school. Not that the kids hated the thought of it, the problem was there were no high schools for miles. The nearest high school to their village took about a 5 hour commute to get there! Only the lucky kids whose parents could afford sending their children off to the city were able to go to high school in this village. The rest had to stop their education at middle school and start working.

    Sho here, was one of the more fortunate kids. His father, a fisherman and his mother, a pharmacist, had earned up enough money for their only kid to study in the city. His mother, since she was the only pharmacist in the whole village, constantly traveled back and forth from the village and the city to bring back medicine. On one of her trips to the city she had blabbed to a her seatmate on a bus about her son and how obsessed he was with swimming, her seatmate then recommended she enroll him in Mizu no Gakuen! She was enrolling her nephew in the same school and they could totally be best bros and everything. As soon as Sho's mother had gotten back she told him all about this fantastic school and how he'd just love it there! To be honest, Sho would rather stay home and I don't know, help his father with fishing or something? But, seeing his mother ecstatic about this, seeing his parents try so hard just to send him to school, he decided to do his best at Mizu no Gakuen.

    TL;DR: Sho grew up in a village in the countryside that flooded a lot where most of the people learned how to swim at a young age. He practiced his swimming well (though he doesn't have any polished skills) thanks to a children's challenge his play mates made up. Since there were no high schools anywhere near the village his parents had long ago planned to send him off to a school in the city, hopefully with dorms. On one of his mother's trips to the city she heard about a school called Mizu no Gakuen and came home telling Sho about it excitedly.

★ Additional Info:
    The lady's nephew ended up alone and forgotten
    He chooses to be bald because hair is way too much of a hassle also because he doesn't like the way it tickles his skin
    He has bushy eyebrows
    He won his waterproof gel sport wrist band watch from a claw machine the first time he accompanied his mother to the city
    Has a bunch of junk he won from arcades, he considers them his "treasures"
    His skin is tanned from all the swimming he did in the village but his butt is snow white :icondopeyplz:
