Koichi Hayano, 早野光一 (KOICHI (光一): Japanese name meaning "light/shining first (child).")

Gender: male
Age: 9
D.o.B: July 9
Height: 143cm (4'8'')
Weight: 35kg (77lbs)
Deck: Psygusto
Riding Duel: No!

Family: Tenpei's and Ruka's only son. Koichi really loves his parents and always try to make them proud. He may not have siblings but he thinks of himself as a member of the huge 5D’s family and deeply cares about everyone. His uncle, Rua, has a special love for him and he spends a lot of time with him whenever he is back at Neo Domino City, playing and dueling with him.

: Koichi has short, brown hair and his mother's hazel eyes. He usually wears grey jeans that reach a little below his knees and a light blue t-shirt. He also has on grey wristbands and white-blue sneakers.

His school uniform consists of a white shirt, a dark blue jacket with white lining (and the 'DA' logo of the Neo Duel Academia), a yellow tie, and black pants. Koichi prefers to wear his everyday shoes even at school, instead of the brown typical shoes that complete the Academia's male uniform.

(For more information, check reference sheet above)

Personality: Koichi is a quiet and very shy boy who prefers to be alone with his Duel Monster spirits, as he has a strong connection with the Spirit World just like his mother. Since he inherited Ruka's ability, Koichi is also capable of sensing other people's hearts and intentions. Therefore, he has his own special way seeing the world and the people around him, but most of the time he prefers to keep to himself. He never causes any trouble as he never gets into fights or anything, since he always tries to avoid every unpleasant situation. He likes when everything flows peacefully without problems or suffering and hates it when someone gets hurt; he offers his help at every chance, even if no one asks for it. 

Since both of his parents are teachers at Neo Duel Academia, Koichi never thought about studying elsewhere such as the Arcadia Movement, the School for Gifted Children. He is a bit of a nerd and spends a lot of time alone studying and because of that, he achieves really high grades. He is also a strong duelist for his age and has special bonds with his cards.

Hehe, Kouichi is cute! Maybe I already said this a million times, but once more wouldn't hurt. (;
The Academy outfit looks really good on him; it makes him more suave than ever.

Hmm, does he have a special companion from the Spirit World?
You know, like how in the anime Ruka has/had Kuribon, Regulus, and Ancient Fairy Dragon?

Otherwise, great work! Can't wait to see the rest of the OC refs posted~~
