Izumi is well aware of his charisma and extroverted personality, and isn’t afraid of using those traits in order to accomplish and gain what he wants. He is very selective when it comes to acquaintances, and would even go out of his way in order to befriend those who may be of use to him in the future and crush those who may prove to be competition – all with a pleasant smile on his face. He seems to have no guilt over his actions, claiming to follow Darwin’s philosophy of “survival of the fittest” in which the stronger ones who adapt to the environment would prevail over the weak. Ironically, Izumi treats ones who he has no use for or major in a completely different field with genuine like and respect, making it difficult to some to figure out his true intentions.
Due to his rotten personality, Izumi doesn't have many, if any, good friends, but he believes it is necessarily to make sacrifices to gain things that have more value, and if that means throwing away long-term companions, then be it.
When not serving in the academic battlefield, Izumi enjoys going to social events such as karaoke or hitting the hot springs, but because he doesn't have an extra budget, these trips are rare.
Izumi’s negative personality stemmed from his childhood environment. His early childhood was pleasant enough with a typical family of three, but when Izumi was seven, his father discarded Mrs. Akiyama for a more beautiful and wealthy woman (although the two never formally had a divorce), leaving her to physically care for the boy by herself but occasionally sending envelopes of money. Despite her middle-class background, the need to raise a young kid, and two jobs to juggle, Izumi’s mother remained cheerful and affectionate to her child as if nothing changed.
Izumi, however, was deeply impacted by his father’s leave. He was shocked to find that two people who supposedly loved each other for such a long period of time could suddenly just break apart because one found a "better" choice, and how his mother dealt with it in such an aloof manner. He ultimately deduced that human relations have are very insignificant and that the only way he wouldn't be left behind is to be the one who leaves other behind.
Because of that mindset, Izumi decided that he would be independent and began experimenting with social relationships at school. He learned that kind words and encouragement to a teacher would result in the playing of favorites. A gesture of friendliness to a classmate would gain him a favor in return. There was no need to please those who were even needier than he was, and because many appeal to ones with higher statuses and worth, he must circumvent around the usual mundane methods and take without being seen taking. Friendships became like lab mice for him; once they proved to reach the maximum of their worth, Izumi discarded them like they never existed.
Just like that, Izumi managed graduate both elementary school and secondary school with minimal effort by using others in his favor, and decided to enroll in Kamenoko University under the management branch of the business department because he believes that his nature exactly needed for such a career. After all, it was extremely rare for CEOs to climb all the way up to their jeweled throne by merely hard work alone. With his mother’s income and the monthly child support money that his father sent prior to his turning eighteen years old, the pair was able to pay for the tuition with still leaving a good sum to pay for housing, food, and transportation. Although Izumi contemplated with the idea of moving out, he decided to still live with his single mother in order to help provide aid when she is in need and comfort when she is in distress, but is looking for a side job to help her easy her load. In addition to that, because his mother works evening and overnight shifts at a nearby hospital, the house is usually empty when he returns and that leaves him more freedom.
Likes + Dislikes + Organization and cleanness + Familiarizing himself with everyone + Takoyaki and other street food + Karaoke - Serving others - Challenging people to persuade - Physical bullying (although it is quite hypocritical of him to think so since he can be considered as a bully as well) - Amorous relationships - Being left behind (so he leaves others behind to prevent this from happening)
Additional Info: Has never dated. The one thing he will never take advantage of is a person’s amorous feelings (although that policy would not stop him from flirting with others). Somewhat of a jealous person. Kept his mother’s last name instead of his father’s. Izumi has average grades, but believes that his leadership and wit makes up for it. Is generally nicer to females than males. Uses two cellphones
When I saw the sparkle close to his face, I thought "Oh is this gonna be what I think it's gonna be?" and I was genuinely surprised that he wasn't a typic bishie boy! Such a strategic guy, oh my he's almost villainous Ψ(｀◇´)Ψ
