“W-what?! I love being alone. It’s super fun! And…uh…I mean, if you want me around, then I guess I can be. I didn’t know you missed me that much. Should have just said so.”
Personality: A take charge and confident to the point of annoying sort of guy. Overcompensates a lot. Acts stronger than he is and always talks big. The more insecure he feels, the more he calls himself awesome. The more lonely he is, the more he insists on being alone and saying he loves it. Has a wild sort of air, reckless, and violent. Doesn’t need to be drunk to act it. Adores his little brother and will sacrifice himself for him without hesitation. Antoine, Gabriel, and Hans are the only ones he truly relaxes with. He acts crude and uncaring. Selfish to the point most people won’t deal with him. In reality, he will help people from the shadows. He hates to have that sort of attention on him but is protective to those who feel similar pains that he has. Hates to cry so he’ll get angry or cruel to hide it. He has walls built up to protect himself that no one’s gotten inside yet. Normally he’d be happy to be in the spotlight, but only if it’s one of his own creation. Can become quite shy when it’s unexpected, same as he will openly woo a girl or boy, but become flustered when he’s chased. Not used to being out of control and scared of it, but actually loves it. He’s unexpectedly sensitive and takes jibs to heart. Hides his loneliness, fear, and hurt behind a loud laugh. His pride is his biggest downfall.
Likes: Beer, a clean work space, vigilante heroes, eye for an eye sort of justice, video games
Dislikes: Sweet wines, fruity/girly drinks, having his wrists tied, stains, cuddling, self-entitled jerks, weaklings without pride.
Facts: Mild insomniac. OCD at times, but usually a slob. Doesn’t smoke, though will take a puff here and there. Has experimented with marijuana but no longer does it. A regular drinker, but not a regular drunk. High alcohol tolerance with beer. He can drink anyone under the table, but is weak to vodka and wine to a lesser degree. Drunk states go from louder/wilder/violent, to cute cuddle bug (sometimes wanton), to drooling sleep. Has a pet canary.

Bio: Originally from Havelberg, Germany. Parents died when he was 8. With his younger brother, he moved in with his aunt, uncle, and cousin, Bastian in Potsdam. Was a multi language household where he learned English(british dialect) from his aunt. Bastian is one year younger, but acts older. Relatively good money now, but started out poorish. His uncle is a wood carver. Due to that, Bas’ family is stingy beyond belief. Rai often looked after his brother by himself and spoiled him when the others would not, getting himself into trouble in order to do so. Started dating Isak in senior year of hs, though he bullied him before for being foreign. The relationship turned abusive in the time after graduation and continued for another year before Rai got out and got even. His family are the only ones who know. He moved to America soon after for a change of pace and to go to college where he met Antoine and Gabe after a few weeks at a drinking party.
