Yet another post with a quick little info thingie from the fanbook. ^_^/
I didn't have time to scanlate the bios from it yet, but to make up for it, I make little informational posts when I am fangirling a particular thing from the book. XD
Unrelated image from the novel, so the post is prettier. XD *lol*
Today, I bring you the backstory of Shiki & Rima's meeting & relationship:
Rima was a huge fan of Shiki's mom as an actress, (which makes me wonder if she'd be terrible disappointed if she met her and saw how she is now, as the madness was progressively getting worse as Shiki grew up).
She actually became a model because she wanted to walk in the footsteps of Shiki's mom! :D
(Except it doesn't says why she ended up as a model rather than an actress... ^^/
This is how she ended up meeting Shiki, who'd also become a model. They met on the job and became inseparable. :D
Shiki became a model because he was scouted when going to see his mom while she was working as an actress. (It seems she still was one until recently, while he was growing up.)
And you might already know that, but since I'm making a post about them, here's some bio info:
■ Shiki is 16 years old, 173cm tall, and from a pro-council family. (His grand-uncle on his mom's side is one of the council elders.)
He's one of the youngest in the Night Class (at least among the main group), and is even shorter than Aidou.
■ Rima is 16 years old, 165cm tall, and from a pro-monarchy family. (Meaning pro-Kaname. And Rido had intended to murder her and her family for that, as he was siding with the council.)
The political positions of their families make their relationship even more interesting, because it's kind of a forbidden situation, one may say. (Whether it's love or friendship).
Well, not officially forbidden, but at least the older members of the community on either side would frown at the idea of the two being so close, especially the ones on the council's side, as far as we know.
