Torahiko Kusakabe (日下部虎彦 Kusakabe Torahiko) is one of the main characters in I-Chu. He is a part of the Idol Unit, ArS, who was the fourth to be introduced in the game.
Profile Description Edit
A self-centered tyrant. A famous painter who is often requested to paint portraits of people but only draws paintings of animals and abstracts. Surprisingly, he's an author of children's stories; it was a secret until
Lucas found out. Because he's an outdoors type of artist, he visits various countries to paint.
Make a simple self-introduction.
The amazing Kusakabe Torahiko here! Call me Tora-chan. I'm going off to paint a piece right now! See ya!
How did you become an idol?
It's 'cause I was told I could do it freely! Who said that? Of course, it was the president himself! Can I leave on a journey yet?
Your impression upon meeting the other members?
Kyosuke is a livelier guy than he seems! It'd be nice if he could freely ignore those deadlines of his. Well then, I'm going off on a journey!
Unrestrained and carefree, Torahiko can come off as being quite an irresponsible young man who is extremely self-absorbed. He dislikes deadlines and strict rules, as he believes that everyone, including his
fellow group members, can live, work and perform the way they want to, and he does not see the need to interfere in their "freedom." However, despite his seemingly careless self, his intuition allows him to see past exteriors and grasp other peoples' temperaments fairly accurately. He also cannot seem to stay put and constantly travels to various places.
Torahiko is a young man with straight red hair and red eyes. His most noticeable feature is his shark teeth and he is often times seen grinning in excitement.
