Hardworking, quick-tempered, and restless.
Rafe is a serious young Basculin. One who sits through class wide awake, notebook open and ready, and a pen in hand. 
Being raised in a middle-class house hold with two strict parents has led to his dedication to responsibilities. He refuses to be distracted during class or swim practice, and if distracted, he will snap at any individual that draws his concentration away from his work. If one should ignore his snap, it can lead to an argument. 
However if an arguments starts during class, he then becomes what he hates. A disturbance!

However, Rafe is hardly serious all the time. Between classes, and after homework, he enjoys meeting with his friends. After focusing deeply through the day, he likes making use of the rest of his time with activities that constantly keep one moving. Be it swimming, walking, hiking, working-out, or using his hands to build, he will enjoy it. While watching movies, sipping drinks, or plain sitting can be boring if no knowledge can be absorbed.

Fun Facts: 
• Rafe is a tad clumsy when it comes to land. P.E. class can result in a few fumbles and bruises!
• While he may be clumsy, he still enjoys land activities, such as hiking.
• A water bottle is usually nearby, for Rafe likes moisture.
• He's new to glasses, thus can be seen fiddling with them as he grows comfortable.
• Missing a pencil in class? Don't fear! Rafe always has several near! He never is short on supplies~
• Rafe is straight, though he is fairly uninterested in relationships at the moment. A gal would have to be impressive for his heart to flutter!
• This is Rafe's first year in wood works, and he has found he enjoys carving and building things!
• However, Rafe is not creative. While he can put together a bird house, or carve his name into a board, he can not come up with intricate designs or beautiful shapes. This goes for any other art as well!
• Instinct has the Basculin boy interested in the bodies of living beings. This leads to his fascination of biology, and his research of it even beyond class.
• Due to his interest in Biology, he may talk about how the body works or looks, or even wonder what you look like within! Don't be scared! He's not going to dissect anyone!
• Rafe's strongest stroke is the Butterfly Stroke, while his weakest is Back Stroke.

Dear lord, this is one MASCULINE fish man! How BA is he?? I loved him right from the start, when Flans honored me with a little sneak peak.
And I really like how surprising his personality is. A hard worker? That was most unexpected, but so utterly interesting!
Eeeep, and gosh, pure magical Elfy style with his lovely proportions! You always draw them so well (especially the cute little feet hehe!)
