AppearanceRaiden has Japanese features, and slightly paler skin due to his Caucasian mother. His eyes are dark brown and his hair is medium brown. As an adult he'll be slim-built and just above average height. Currently, he tends to be dressed quite casually, usually in T shirts and shorts, but this will change when he's an adult, and he'll tend to dress more formally because of his work, usually seen in various suits.
Raiden is naturally happy and cheerful, and will always have a youthful personality. He is already very intelligent and quick thinking for his age, with a keen interest in learning, and this is a trait which will remain with him throughout his life. He will be romantic, and not a natural fighter.
Raiden currently lives with his parents and sisters, and they have 2 homes. The main home in a large and modern house in Tokyo, near his father's business and family. They also have another, slightly smaller house in New York city, although this isn't used often.
AbilitiesRaiden's first and main ability is Sky Manipulation. The ability reflects the meanings of his names, and also was influenced by an eclipse which occurred while Charlie was pregnant with him. He manifested it when he was a year old, and caused his first eclipse. The ability includes manipulation of celestial objects, the capacity to cause eclipses and immunity to them, as well as manipulation of weather, slight manipulation of light and slight manipulation of air.
His second ability is Enhanced Mental Advancement. He is manifested this from birth, and it is responsible for him mentally maturing and learning rapidly. It was first noticed when he began to speak. It is similar both to his mother's ability, and to his paternal grandfather's. The ability causes increased mental skill and more complex thoughts than normal or average, as an infant and child. It gives him increased intelligence, an improved memory and an increased capacity for language and grasping complex concepts.
His third ability is Substance Mimicry. This enables him to mimic any substance he encounters, but it is easier if he has the substance at hand. Usually only his skin will alter, but his entire body can. He manifested it when he placed his hand in running water and then mimicked it. Examples include mimicking a metal for durability and strength, mimicking water for flexibility and ability to flow, and mimicking surrounding substances to camouflage himself.
