Shiro is probably one of the reasons why the "Sweet Dream" café is always so busy. In fact, not a day of the week goes by (except Monday, the day off) without it being full to capacity. This is not only due to the sweet specialties that the café serves, but also to its owner: Shiro. He dares to claim to be the most popular inhabitant of the city. And he may not be wrong about that, at least as far as the female part of the population is concerned. In fact, 80% of the café's customers are women..

But the claim is not only in the eye of the beholder, but also in Shiro's character. Because not only does he look dazzling, he also has his heart in the right place. He is always courteous and friendly to his customers, very generous to his staff and a very charming man in other ways too. It is therefore hardly surprising that he has many admirers and that he can hardly save himself from invitations to parties and events!

Appearance

Shiro pays close attention to his appearance. He wants to look cool and relaxed, but at the same time serious and clean. That's why he often combines his heavy necklaces with casual, light-colored shirts and sweaters in his free time. In the pastry shop, he naturally wears his pristine white master's outfit, which he doesn't want a single crumb to get on. If it should happen that (especially his apprentices) accidentally spill on him, it could be extremely uncomfortable for them!

However, he hardly ever wears the uniform that his father gave him before he died. You could even say that he despises it. No wonder, when you know what his family did to him ...

  • strawberries!
  • strawberry flavoured sweets
  • strawberry milkshakes
  • humans in general
  • talking with sweet people
  • working in his confectionery
  • being alone
  • getting lost
  • coffee without milk (urg)
  • his brother
  • violence and weapons

""A strawberry tart? Of course, they're my specialty!""

Backstory

Shiro was born into the reigning royal family with his twin brother Yoru. Like his brother, he was forced to be strong and unpredictable from an early age. His instincts, strength and endurance were pushed to the limit every day, almost every minute. His father, the reigning king, showed no mercy even to his two sons. But while Yoru accepted this martyrdom without emotion, Shiro was soon broken by it. For he was completely different from what his father would have wished. Shiro had always been very imaginative, was often distracted (even if it was just a cloud in the sky) and never made it to the scheduled appointments. The many hours of studying quickly overtaxed him, both physically and mentally.

His mother was a great support to him. For as long as he could remember, she stood protectively in front of him and thus against her own husband. She was also a fox spirit and had passed on all her external attributes to him. Perhaps even a lot of her character traits. Unfortunately, he never had the chance to get to know her better because, to his great horror, his mother died in an assassination attempt in his early childhood. After his mother's death, nothing was ever the same again. Not only was his beloved mother snatched away from him, but a decades-long war broke out between various spirits, humans and dragons.

As the king could not use his incompetent son in the war and considered him an unnecessary burden, he unceremoniously abandoned him to one of the weakest peoples: the humans. The king's soldiers abducted him in the middle of the night and threw him in front of the rickety, wooden gate of a nearby village. With the intention of letting him die there, of course. But Shiro did not die. The great weakness of humans was their mortality and vulnerability, but one of their strengths was their compassion. A little girl found the unconscious young Shiro wounded and bleeding in front of the gate and immediately informed the village. The miraculous boy was accepted into the community and took over much of the defense and protection from the village. After all, he had learned this extensively, albeit poorly and slowly.

Present Day

The small village to which Shiro was brought in his youth developed over the centuries into one of the largest cities in the empire thanks to the protection of the "White Fox God".

To pay homage to the god, small stone sculptures depicting a fox with three tails were erected throughout the town. Just as his figure had looked back then. When Shiro was on his way to his confectionery often wondered whether he still had that figure, because he hadn't had to summon it for a long time in these times of peace.

Yoru: Twin Brother

Time known each other: since birth

His brother Yoru is the complete opposite of Shiro. Cold-hearted, strong and intelligent. Exactly what the king appreciates. But in the War of the Century, some circumstances change and Yoru stands at Shiro's door one day ...

Mallory: Acquaintance

Time known each other: A few weeks

When the delicate, but rather tough-looking young woman stormed into Shiro's pastry shop, he was startled at first and took care of her. Over a cappuccino and strawberry tartlet, she told him about the antique dealer sitting next door, and how he wanted to brush her off brusquely, even though she was only gathering information. Shiro grinned when he heard her blurt out that she wouldn't give up so easily!
