Here's some stuffs! (It's a work in progress, so it's subject to change and updates)

"All I wanted to do was become the son you can be proud of! Is that too much to ask!?"
name : Kokuzoku Bitoru (コクソクビトル)
nickname(s) : "Kokichi" and "Ni-Ni" (by Aka)
vigilante// villain name : KB
age// birthday : 24 ll April 14th
gender : male
height // weight : 5'8'' [172 cm]
blood type : O
nationality : Black (American)/Asian (Japanese)
quirk type : Insect
quirk description : Kokuzoku's quirk is derived from the assassin bug. He may not be as strong or fast as his sister, but he has a deadly toxin contained in his saliva. A small dosage can temporarily paralyze his opponent, but a greater dosage can kill if one isn't careful enough. If ingested or entered into the blood stream, it can disintegrate vital organs. Additionally, the sticky hairs on his body as well as the spines on his arms aid him in clutching, digging, and climbing surfaces. He also has antennae that aren't as sensitive as Aka's, but generally serves the same detection purposes. His extra pair of arms contain three large spines in which is used in melee fights. He also has two extra eyes above his general ones that enhances his vision.
ability1: (Spit Fire) Kokuzoku ejects acidic saliva towards his opponent up to 5 feet. Effect varies on the amount and concentration of toxins.
ability2: (Devil's Kiss) Kokuzoku delivers a paralyzing or lethal bite to opponent. Worse when delivered through kissing. Effect varies on concentration of toxins.
quirk drawbacks : Because majority of his abilities are through his toxins, he has to train harder to match up his physical attributes. Along with Aka, his toxins are a part of his immune system so too much usage can make him susceptible to sickness. Additionally, there's only so much saliva he can deliver before he suffers from dehydration.

personality : Kokuzoku by nature is very stubborn and headstrong. However, he was a favorite among his peers and had many friends ,that supported him going to Yuuei thanks to his initial good nature. He's often misunderstood, no thanks to his inability to articulate his fiery emotions. Speaking to him is like a ticking time-bomb; you never know what you will get until it's too late. He's also surprisingly a hopeless romantic and falls in love very easily. Because of this, his peers and siblings would joke about his many relationships.
Spam musubi. He's not a fan of spam, but when coupled with sushi and nori, it's a winner for him.
Nature. Despite being a city boy, taking a hike and immersing himself in nature are things that he enjoys doing. It quiets his mind.
Solitude. He's a bit of an introvert, so he needs his space from time to time or else you'll suffer from his mood swings.
Lifetime movies. It's a secret.
His hair. He prides himself in his locks, no matter how vain it may make him seem.
Pranks. He gets irrationally angry when he falls for them, which makes it even funnier to pull one on him.
Injustice. He's a strong believer in taking justice into your own hands. "Eye for an eye."
Being misunderstood. It's frustrating enough for him to not be able to effectively articulate his feelings.
Loud, repetitive noises. It's highly distracting and agitates him.
Heroes. This comes a little later in his life, but he carries the same ideology of Hero Killer Stain.
Third born to his family of 7, Kokuzoku had other plans in mind coming into the world. Instead of following the route of city work, he wanted to become a hero. Around this time, his parents were all willing to support him given his intelligence, bravery, and courage. He was very outspoken, cheery, and a dreamer who worked hard day in and day out to achieve his dreams. Instead of trying to impress people with solving big problems, he believed in doing everyday things like helping old women across the street and so forth. This made him a favorite in his community and prompted his teachers and associates to file a recommendation for him to attend U.A.
He managed to pass his exams primarily on hero points and made it to Aizawa's 1-A class. Unfortunately for him, he and his entire class were expelled within the first week. For him, he was unable to physically keep up with the others to the point where his intelligence couldn't even save him. It was a massive blow to his self esteem.
All his dreams, his training, were gone. He came home and fell into deep depression. He had to transfer to a regular high school, but ended up skipping class and ultimately dropping out. He became very angry and bitter towards Aizawa and idea of heroes for ripping his dreams away but decided to try once again, on his own terms. Out of desperation, he scavenged for open internships in Japan against his parents' wishes and found one in Shinjuku that was willing to take him in for 2000 yen. He made a deal with some underground thugs to borrow the money and went in to pay his down payment.
In another cruel twist of fate, it turned out to be a scam. Unable to pay back the money in due time, the thugs began to harass him and his family- sending their posse to bully his younger siblings and robbing their house. Kokuzoku was sent over the edge when Aka came home with a black eye from one of their ruses. When everyone went out to dinner; he stayed home, lured them to his house, and let out a deadly surprise attack which left two dead and one severely injured. Kokuzoku was horrified at his first two kills and so was his parents when they came home with the kids.
They gave him the benefit of the doubt and called the cops before becoming outraged when Kokuzoku came clean to them and the cops about what he has been doing for the past 2 years. They threw him out and shunned him, telling him to "never come back" after putting their family in danger.
After serving juvenile jail time (he was 17 at the time and was released in three years due to the circumstances, his age, his family connections, and good behavior) he went into work and became a vigilante going by the name of "KB". He followed on the coattails of Hero Killer Stain's ideology intently, even going as far as turning against his own morals by joining the League of Villains to pursue this idea as being a "true" hero.
██████ R E L A T I O N S H I P S// I N F O
Aka Bitoru : His younger sister and his biggest admirer. He tries his hardest to be a good example to her and instill good morals. He practically served as a secondary parental figure to her thanks to their parents' busy lifestyle. He is fiercely protective of Aka and will not hesitate to intimidate and/or harm anyone who dares to make her cry.
Kokuzoku was one of the two (the other being Mina) that encouraged her to follow her dreams regardless of his experiences. He did warn her to exercise caution and suggested her to apply for the General Education department just in case.
Aka is like the Thor to his Loki; her being the more likable powerhouse, and him being the more sly and cunning sibling.
He was heartbroken that his parents didn't let him see her anymore, almost becoming suicidal, but didn't go through with it because of how much it'll hurt Aka. He still secretly visits her after school some blocks away and at midnight when everyone is asleep. He sometimes brings her treats and little trinkets which she holds dearly and hangs up in her room.
Mina Ashido : Kokuzoku regards Mina as one of his "bonus sisters" and puts a lot of trust in her to steer Aka in the right direction. He looks out for her and supports her in her journey to becoming a Pro Hero.
Shinsou Hitoshi : He isn't very fond of him thanks to Aka's accounts of his mistreatment. Although she speaks more fondly of him nowadays, he's still very disproving him and his relationship to her.
Aizawa Shoto : HATES him. There's nothing that he would want more than to put him through the same agony he went through.
Dabi : They didn't hit it off at first, Dabi's slights making him agitated. Despite having low tolerance for moodiness, Dabi is pretty much the only one who cares enough to at least ask him about his day. ...Still picks on him for his moodiness though.
Himiko Toga : Always, Always, ALWAYS plays pranks on Kokuzoku. Also picks at him for his potential guy crush, though Kokuzoku adamantly denies it.

hobbies : collecting sneakers and trinkets from his defeated opponents.
fun facts + headcanons :
1) His collective hobbies are actually a side effect of his quirk. Backpacking assassin bugs create armor using the exoskeletons of dead prey. But of course, I found that a bit difficult to integrate this feature in a major way, so I limited it to a hobby.
2) Kokuzoku has mainly had girlfriends, but he's also had a few boyfriends too that he keeps a secret. He's still in the closet.
3) He may or may not have a sister complex.
4) His name actually means “traitor” or “rebel”.
you can still do it though~!
i can't wait to see more of him and the AU you plan, as well as his relationship with Aka!
Yeah, I find it really fun to match their bug quirks- I get to learn so much about them and how to adapt their natural abilities in real time :3
