I keep telling myself I'll sit this out for a while (and stop procrastinating) but I just can't stay away. But oh, well.>>3275127
That drawing is lovely. You're really good at this.>>3275066>gap moe traits
Getting super flustered when someone is genuinely kind to him, putting on the lone wolf face but actually being clingy in private, dressing up as Eve and being cute while at it, flowers in his hair and make up and all.>how does he affect the plot
He's one of the MCs. As far as story structure is concerned, his own arc serves to provide background on the recent history and nature of No. 6, not a pretty one, as expected. It's also a trigger to the main plot. Everything starts with 12yo him running away after being shot, which tells you right off the bat that you're diving into a dystopia. He escapes into the city during a storm, meets a 12yo Shion who patches him up. The latter's life is completely thrown off course, as he ends up going from successful future scientist and city elite to dissident aiding a fugitive. Some years later, Nezumi returns to pay his debt and further messes up the city's plans when they try to arrest Shion, deeming him a criminal as an excuse to experiment on that special brain of his. >other characters
As said, his arrival sort of wrecks Shion's life. Nezumi is both a bane and a blessing for him. On the one hand, he causes him to lose everything he had. On the other, it's an awakening experience that changes him to the core. As a result, he ends up rejecting his childhood friend.
Despite having his own endgame, Nezumi becomes a catalyst for Shion, which isn't necessarily good, as others get hurt or killed in the process.
Then there's the dog keeper, a younger kid he clashes with throughout the story. Their interactions serve to reveal a lot about Nezumi.Regardless if they're stealing from one another, being shitty or just downright murderous, dog keeper too gets sucked into the plot and ends up changed by the whole experience.
