Caring || Positive || Open-minded || Friendly || Patient || Charismatic
Toru loves to help people and will never say no if you ask him for help. He'll do his best to aid you in whatever problem you have at all times. He likes to remain positive no matter the situation, always the one who tries to lift the mood when everything goes all wrong.Toru accepts any ideas from his peers, most especially his fellow Guardians, and takes everything into consideration, even if its silly. He's also rarely angry, as he is extremely patient- you could be late for something by an hour or two and Toru wouldn't be angry at you, but would rather greet you with a smile as if he had only waited for a minute. However that patience can be broken if someone is hurt, thought when Toru is angry at the actions of a student or person in general, rather than voice his anger aggressively like most people, he'll give you a brightest smile you've ever seen from him. But otherwise, he's completely friendly and full of smiles and coupled up with his natural charisma, it makes him a very approachable person.
+Meeting new people
+His friends and guardian characters
+Spending time with his grandmother
-Seeing people get hurt
-His parent's nagging about his career
-Being forced to do something against his will
-Over the top amounts of paperwork (gives him headaches)
Toru, being born into a family that has been in medical fields for generations, was raised and directed to the same path. His father is a doctor, and his mother is one of the few female surgeons in Japan, both the best in their respective areas of work. They all resided on the mainland of Japan, and the both of them wanted Toru to follow the Yanagi family's path. When he was young, Toru had been quite fascinated by the idea of being able to help people, and didn't object with becoming a doctor and taking over for his father, and that thought remained until he met his grandmother at 10 years old.
Toru's grandmother was one of the rare members of the Yanagi family that wasn't in the medical field. When she was young, she was a popular singer and pianist at a bar, and had completely rebelled against joining the medical field, despite her father threatening to cut ties with her. When Toru met her, she had introduced him to the world of music- back then he had only heard music or caught a glimpse of a performance on the TV before his mother turned it off or changed the channel. As he began to spend more time with his grandmother, he developed a great interest in the piano, and eventually, the elderly woman saw his potential and taught him how to play.
The two shared that little secret between them for a long while, until Toru reached the age of 13. His parents when absolutely ballistic and forbid Toru from going over to his grandmother's, forcing him to focus on his studies, instead of a useless hobby that won't get him anywhere in life. Toru grudgingly did so, yet he always seemed to manage to sneak over to his grandmother's (she lived down the road) when his parents were working.
Gradually, he got better and better at piano, and though still behind other kids his age whom learnt the piano, he didn't care. He was happy that he could play, and did his best to balance his playing with his studies, so that his parents wouldn't get suspicious. However, when he was discovered a second time, a year later from the first, he was sent to Seiton Islands' Seiso Academy, and was cut off from contacting his grandmother.

Previous Guardians- Toru was very close with his ex-fellow guardians, so when they all transferred away due to family reasons one by one, it gave him a feel of loneliness. Nevertheless, he still keeps in contact with them.
Kazehaya Daisuke- Unofficial boyfriend. They've had quite a odd relationship at the beginning, but as more time was spent with each other, Toru took the moment to confess. Though they didn't exactly officially label each other as boyfriend relationship- it's kind of obvious. Toru has this sense of need to protect him constantly and he generally just loves spending time with him, no matter the place or time.
Louise Teo- Quite the eccentric person, if he may add. They had quite an unusual meeting, however Toru's patience caught up with her bursts of temper and personality and they ended up quite good friends. She was also the first new student he encountered.
Corea Juon- In Toru's opinion, this jelly-bean lover was quite an interesting poem. Upon meeting at the entrance ceremony, they hit it off quite well and he would label him as one of his good friends with no hesitation whatsoever.

-He didn't get to do music as a subject, because his parents would find out, so he opted with joining the Music club and having lessons from the teacher after school.

+Peace and quiet
+Classical music (still prefer piano)

>Quote: "Can you please be quiet."
>Extra:-Toru is capable of both character changing and transforming with him
-He first appeared after Toru mastered a piece he had a lot of trouble with back in his first year of Seiyo
-Only speaks when Toru makes him or when around people he tolerates
-His earring is that of a semibreve symbol, a note that lasts four whole beats
-The design of his egg simply depicts that of music notes going off its lines, representing freedom, in which it starts and ends with a treble clef, showing 'a new start'
