Occupation: College Student (also plays football or smth idk)
Sexual Orientation: Demisexual panromantic, usually attracted to feminine people (note: typically perceives himself as straight)
Love Interest(s): Has a crush on Ritsu
Likes: being praised, sweet romance and tender situations (???)
Dislikes: too much attention, potentially being seen as weird (?), social settings and general debauchery (???)
Strengths: Fairly organized in both his thoughts and day to day schedule, fairly empathetic
Weaknesses: Has a tendency to let others make his final decisions, rather than thinking for himself; not very good at approaching people; somewhat of a pessimist; gets anxious in social situations and around around people he doesn't know
Personality: Fairly self-conscious with a desire to be be seen as ordinary--wants to fit in. Tends to come off as a little cold and irritated at first, but that's mostly because he doesn't really know how to interact with people in a friendly way. Surprisingly affectionate and caring toward people he considers friends (primarily Ritsu in this AU)
Dmitri is an alternate universe version of my character of the same name from my story Nerdy and Jock. Here, Dmitri is an American college student and also a player on the college football team. He's roommates with Ritsu and learns about Ritsu's side job as a singer/performer early on.
Since Dmitri's football friends from Nerdy and Jock (Jack and Brodney) don't exist in this AU, Dmitri is a little less open in this universe and often betrays his own opinions in order to accommodate to his acquaintances for the sake of fitting in. His ideal is to keep to the sidelines and remain unnoticed without being considered an outsider. The only person he really feels comfortable talking to honestly is Ritsu.
He tries to keep his distance from people, but he's actually a kindhearted a person.
