Juon was the first born child to a Japanese mother and Sri-Lankan father, in a rural town of Japan. His father was a traveling businessman, who had met his mother on one of his trips, only to take a liking to Japanese society and settle down there. Juon had always been very close to him, though his job had still kept him away from home more often than not.
He spent most of his childhood with his younger sister, Yonah—they were very close, and she stuck to him like a shadow growing up. When he got a little older, it dawned on him that he really made an impression on her, and that actions she would take would reflect on him, and that he had the responsibility of making sure she grew up on the right path as her big brother. For quite a while, he’d taken this very seriously, constantly hovering over her to keep her on what seemed like the right track. With their father usually gone, he had to take on the role of the man of the family. As time passed, his time with Yonah became less of fun and more of a chore. A responsibility. She had gotten in trouble a lot of the time, and he always had to be there to take the load of the burden and bail her out.
And it wasn’t until he was pushed to his limit that he was forced to vocalize his frustration—his stress had gotten to him, and all he wanted was independence from the pressure of his family, of his responsibilities—from Yonah. He started acting more on his own and trying to escape his duties; he’d try and avoid her, getting away before she could notice, or getting himself distracted with other things to avoid interacting.
Toward the end of high school, he requested that he transfer to an academy across the country—his parents agreed initially, but not too shortly after, it was suggested that Yonah enroll there, too. Outraged by the idea and misinterpreting it as Yonah trying to follow him there, he argued back against her with the fury of all his pent-up anger. Their father silenced them immediately, scolding Juon heavily for his reaction and his behavior. It broke him a bit, emotionally; an idea that he had initiated, yet be believed he was continuing to be shoved the blame for his sister’s actions. All he wanted was to do something on his own, to be independent from having to constantly put the needs of others over his own. It was shortly after this that his egg was born; the day that they were to leave.
Their relationship was highly fractured when they departed for Seiyo Academy; she assured him that she wouldn’t need his help, that she would be fine on her own, but he wasn’t so sure.
Juon is a master of pessimistic self-fulfilling prophecies. He may not believe that he has bad karma, but the evidence is all there—though he tries to have good intentions with his actions, they always have some sort of negative twist that comes back to bite him. If something’s going to go wrong, he already knows that it probably will. These are things he goes so far as to state when things are going well—that, since it’s him, something’s bound to turn for the worst any second. And, due to his firm and unwavering belief of this, something always does.
But it’s not that he’s a bad person; generally, he’s a rather friendly young man with extroverted tendencies who enjoys being active. He’s just very negative in his outlooks, which turn a lot of his attitudes bitter and a lot of his remarks sarcastic. It’s something he can’t help, though; at least not anymore—the tendency grew from using that negativity as a self-deprecating joke into an actual component of his personality as its usage continued over the years.
While he lets his opinions be known without much restraint, he keeps the truth of his feelings under lock and key, as he tends to be embarrassed of his true emotions. He’s ridiculously soft underneath it all, but he’ll go to any length to try and prove otherwise.
