OPEN a child with super low self-esteem due to his upbringing, atsushi is dazai's new protege. he has a strong sense of morality but is often seen as flighty. he is generally unsure of himself, but becomes steadfast and reliable in tough situations. his ability is beast beneath the moonlight and he is known as the man tiger because he can turn into a white tiger; either fully or partially.
OPEN ranpo is a genius and not actually an ability user; he is simply a genius at deduction and reasoning. because the director allows him to believe that he is an ability user, he 'activates' it by putting on a pair of glasses that were given to him by said director. he is proud and almost cocky, but also childish and teasing. he is commended by the agency for his intelligence, especially because he isn't an ability user.
OPEN akiko is actually my wife. she's so fucking cool. anyway, she's actually kind of twisted in her mentality, and that would be because of her ability: thou shalt not die. basically, she can heal wounds, but a person has to be "half dead" in order for it to work; that being said, she has a tendency of cutting people up until they're almost dead when she works on them. she is the agency's doctor (also nicknamed the queen omfg) and she's amazing.
OPEN kenji is a rural boy and he's incredibly simple. he believes in the good in everyone and, because of this innocence, people are usually pretty nice to him. he's very optimistic and oftentimes childish; super innocent. but, because of the work he used to do, and his ability (undefeated by the rain), he has superhuman strength. however, he can only use it on an empty stomach and, once he eats, he falls asleep.
OPEN junichirou is very humble and polite, he's also very calm; except for when someone hurts his "sister" (and i say "sister" loosely, because...i'm not entirely sure they're really siblings, cause they're definitely having sex). that being said, he will absolutely lose his mind when naomi is hurt, and he's a force to be reckoned with. his ability is light snow which is essentially good for cloaking, as he can project illusions for a certain range around him, affecting said area as well with snowfall.
OPEN akutagawa is...strange, frankly. he is fine with being the "dog" of the port mafia, oftentimes doing the missions that involve killing and otherwise 'dirty' situations. he was dazai's protege and harbors a deep resentment for atsushi, since dazai told him atsushi is better in every way. he is avoidant of social interactions and keeps to himself. he believes that weak people should die and the strong should inherit. he's super pessimistic, dark, and /edgy/. his ability is rashomon, which allows him to turn his coat, or any garment he wears, into ravenous shadow beast.
OPEN this little cutie. while with the port mafia, she's nothing but a doll, but after atsushi saves her, she starts thinking for herself. she wants to prove kouyou (who took her "in" and has been controlling her through her cell phone) wrong--who says that flowers that bloom in darkness can only thrive in darkness. she wants to prove to everyone that she's not just a killer. her ability is demon snow and it allows her to materialize a sword-wielding snow phantom--the armed detective agency's director has allowed her to use the ability on her own, rather than through a cell phone.
OPEN initially appearing as meek and mild-mannered, its later revealed that she is a loyal and bloodthirsty member of the port mafia. she has strong feelings for akutagawa and respects him, she'd follow him anywhere. she is not a known ability user.
OPEN director! yukichi is a very serious man, super calm, even in front of dangerous enemies. he's also a super good leader and everyone loves him. he does definitely care about everyone, as seen when he tells everyone to go look for atsushi and when he accepts kyouka easily. he definitely has a soft spot for cute things, though he's never seen smiling, and he also loves cats. his ability is all men are equal and it can adjust the power of the abilities of all those in the armed detective agency so that they can be easily controlled. he is also amazingly strong and is kunikida's master, so kida respects him like a ton.
OPEN this little rage-monster. well, not so little. kunikida is my babe and i love him he's so good but also really neurotic. obsessed with certain 'ideals' in everyday life, he's often disappointed by the things he sees cause they don't fit this ideal. imagine, he was a former teacher. his ability is 'lone poet' which enables him to, as long as it will fit in his notebook's pages, write anything and have it appear from the pages of his notebook that he carries everywhere.
OPEN so starting off the port mafia, there's the boss. initially, he is shown to be somewhat clumsy and ordinary, but that's only a ruse. in reality, he is cruel and merciless, a natural born leader, and highly intimidating to all those around him. he took dazai wherein kouyou took chuuya, and raised him as his own. he is super polite to everyone, strangely enough. his ability is vita sexualis, but hasn't been shown just yet. basically, he's a scary dude.
TAKEN BY MORTIMER someone i really want around, for chuuya reasons. kouyou is serious and mature, somewhat emotional, but also cruel woman. she cares strongly for kyouka, even if it first appeared she was obssessed with her and her ability. she used to 'live in the light' but her lover was murdered after they tried to leave the mafia. i have headcanons about her and chuuya, so if you want this lovely lady, just hit me up! her ability is golden demon and, like kyouka's ability, it is a sword-wielding phantom.
OPEN aka Q, he's absolutely terrifying for such a little thing. he absolutely hates dazai, as dazai sealed him away in the past. he is volatile but also incredibly childish; he loves torturing others. he wants to make dazai pay, but spares him every time. his ability is dogra magra and it is activated by mutilating a creepy doll, and then his receivers are cursed to seeing illusions and attacking one another. he claims all he ever wanted was to live happily and he doesn't want the ability he has.
f. scott fitzgerald
TAKEN BY BRE
he is the leader of the american ability user's association called 'the guild'. fitzgerald is proud and boastful, often throwing his wealth around. he is arrogant and super self-confident. he is super determined and believes everything will go his way eventually. he isn't outright evil, as he cares a great deal about his subordinates; he cares a great deal for his beloved wife and mourns his deceased daughter. his ability is the great fitzgerald which allows him to gain more power in accordance to how much money he's spent.
lucy maud montgomery
OPEN an orphan that was treated harshly and later taken into the guild, lucy is shown to be a little bit unstable, but also deeply damaged. she wants a place to belong and bemoans the fact she was always called a freak for her ability growing up. she wants people to stay and be with her all the time. her ability is anne of abyssal red which allows her to create an alternate reality known as "anne's room" in which people are imprisoned if they're caught by her monster playing hide-and-seek.
OPEN part of 'the guild'. he is relaxed and easy-going, partners with lovecraft, and usually contemplative. he has great confidence in himself, hates chores, and is super cunning and devious. his ability is the grapes of wrath in which he grows vines from the side of his neck, allowing him to be 'one' with the plants around him--he can feel and hear things through the plants. he is polite and kind, loves his family, but has no care for his enemies.
howard phllips lovecraft
OPEN part of 'the guild'. lovecraft is strange, often described as creepy and off-putting. he's incredibly strange, super non-chalant, and falls asleep a lot. basically, he's one giant reference to lovecraftian weirdness, and especially cthulhu. his "ability" (the great old ones--the ability to transform his body into a multi-tentacled monster), is not actually an ability at all, and its /just/ lovecraft. he's also the reason that chuuya and dazai partner up again, to defeat him, and its great.
part of 'the guild'. kind of close to my heart, cause of the scarlet letter, but anyway. a religious man, he believes he was given a mission by god to pass judgment on heavy sinners. he holds himself in high esteem and arrogantly holds himself above them. he is smart, poised, and cunning. his ability is the scarlet letter which allows him to convert his own blood into holy words so he can control them; like bullets or shields, etc.
OPEN part of 'the guild'. another favorite, margaret is a southern belle. she is usually very arrogant, but shows a soft side here and there--mostly towards hawthorne. she has a ton of pride (if you've ever read/seen gone with the wind, she's scarlett) and even goes so far as to go over hawthorne's head and then berate him for doing nothing. she joined the guild in order to repay a massive debt her family owes; she's super family oriented. her ability is gone with the wind and it is the ability to weather things with the wind; she threatened to turn someone into a mummy, so its possible that she can weather people down as well.
OPEN part of 'the guild'. mark twain is usually pretty cavalier and laid-back, but has no trouble taking orders when he's really needed. he's confident in himself, claims to never miss his shots, and he loves a good challenge--he says things are more fun that way. his ability is huck finn & tom sawyer, which summons mini doll-like creatures and, by attaching either one of them to one of his bullets, he can fire with exact accuracy. he can also use them as long distance surveillance.
