Tohru Honda is the optimistic main character. Despite all the tragities in her life, she always keeps a smile. She's
the kind of person who looks at her life as a glass half full, not a glass half empty. She is very grateful for what she has.
Sometimes she's so sweet I want to slap her! She has a thing for both Yuki and Kyo... who will she pick?
Yuki Sohma is the rat of the zodiac. He's shy and acts like "he has a stick up his ass" a lot. Tohru really softens him
up though. He's really popular at school and even has a "Prince Yuki Fan Club"- AKA, a bunch of insane girls who are crazy
jealous that Tohru is so close to Yuki, but is too scared of Tohru's friends to do anything. Yuki has a dark and scarred past,
and is almost afraid of Akito, the head of the family. Despite this, Tohru always manages to bring out the best in him. ^_^
Kyo Sohma is possesed by the cat from the zodiac ledgend. Cast out and ridiculed by the family, Kyo is set on beating
Yuki in a fight to earn his dignity. Each time he tries, he fails. Despite his angry and tempermental nature, Tohru has managed
to get a smile out of him a couple of times. He is actually a very sweet person, and in Momiji's words, "Kyo's got the hots"
for Tohru. Kyo's "true form" is his real dark secret, and his curse.
Shigure Sohma is a happy-go-lucky character, who often annoys Yuki and Kyo. He is possesed by the dog of the zodiac.
He's a novelist, and houses Yuki, Kyo, and Tohru without complain. He has a very close relationship with Akito (no, not in
a gay way!). He's part of the "Mabudachi Trio", with Hatori and Ayame, his friends for a very long time. He's a very animated
character, and I, personally, love him. He is one of the funniest characters in the book! He also, has his secrets. He and
Akito are secretly manipulating Tohru for their own purposes. If good or ill will come for Tohru... well... go read the book!
Kagura Sohma is possesed by the boar from the zodiac. She's stubborn and headstrong, and is set on marrying Kyo! She
expresses her love for him in very violent ways, often beating him up in her excitement. She has a split personality, though,
and is normally a very sweet and thoughtful person. She and Tohru have aquired a friendship, which pisses Kyo off because
he has to see her more.
Momiji Sohma is a cheerful and slightly hyper active boy who is possesed by the rabbit of the zodiac. He's extremely
energetic and always seems to be happy. He and Tohru get along very well. I think Momiji is KAWAII ^_^ but he's older
than he looks. Even though he looks like an elementary school boy, he's actually only a year younger than Tohru, Yuki, and
Kyo. He is also emotionally affected by the curse. Despite his "Happy happy joy" attitude on life, Momiji has had a tough
life. In a way, he's like Tohru. But Tohru's not nearly as ADORABLE!
Hatori Sohma is possesed by the dragon of the zodiac, but when he transforms, to put it bluntly... HE'S A SEAHORSE. He's
also part of the Mabudachi Trio and Ayame and Shigure make fun of him because of his transformation. (I luv them! lol) Hatori
is the family doctor-- he only takes family members as patients, but the Sohmas ARE a big family. Hatori is almost blind in
one eye. When someone's memories need erasing, Hatori is the one to do it. He erases anyone's memories at Akito's orders.
He's had his share of hard times though, when he erased his girlfriend, and almost fiance's memories.
Hatsuharu Sohma, or Haru, is the bull, or rather, cow of the zodiac. Haru has two sides, his "white" and his "black"
sides, like the spots on a cow. When Haru goes "black" he loses control and becomes violent. He wants to beat Kyo in a fight
for no good reason, and claims that Yuki was his first love (I don't think he's serious, though). Even though his black side
is...er... bad... he's a really good person and has a special connection with Yuki and Kisa, both of whom were mentally scarred
by certain incidents.
Ayame Sohma is the snake from the zodiac, and Yuki's older brother. He owns a shop that sells maid, stewardess, and nurses'
outfits. Yuki and Tohru have their experience with that (laugh). Truthfully... Ayame is really stupid. He keeps trying to
get close to Yuki, all in the wrong ways, and ends up having Yuki hate him even more. Well, not really hate, because as Yuki
had said, he doesn't really hate Ayame, there's just "a rift" between them. Ayame is just thankful that they have some sort
of relationship between them. The thing he is afraid of most is... "nothingness". Ayame is the final member of the Mabudachi
Trio, and one of my favorite characters. Ayame is really idiotic, and never gives a strait answer to anybody except Hatori,
whom he has great respect for.
Kisa is the tiger from the zodiac. After being teased and laughed at, Kisa had stopped speaking for a long time. After
meeting Tohru, with Yuki's help, she realized that she needs to keep trying and start talking again. She has a special relationship
with Haru and Hiro (ha ha, haru, hiro, ha ha). Generally, she's a kind and innocent person, and I think she's absolutely KAWAII!!!
As the series goes on, more will come, but only books 1-6 are out, so these are the only characters I have. More to come!
