Hano's introduction.


1st Model

Hano's First Model

He used to be a rash young human-hyena hybrid cub that scours trash for food just to survive for a day. His attitude during this stage is feral, like a wild animal out in the wide savannas. He gets taken into custody by a group of agents, teaching him proper human personality and educating him with etiquette and modernity. He grows, learns, and adapts until he turns into an actual person, albeit still with his punk-like mentality. He gets released from custody by the board of directors as they had seen him fit to live out in the populace, only getting minimum supervision once in a while to prevent him from accidentally reverting back into his old ways. Currently, in this lore, he is a rough-looking extrovert filled to the brim with mischief and mayhem, out into the VTuber world searching for fun and entertainment.

Hano's 2nd Model

He's a full-blown fist-fight addict high school delinquent. He's wherever trouble is. If he isn't, he's definitely out there trying to cause one. His temperament is that of a 2-second timed explosive, always itching and ready to go. That was until he finds himself in his first life-or-death situation. He converts and reforms his ways due to his first near-death experience, and is now out there trying to correct his wrongs, attempting to make his actions always be for the greater good.
