Name: Shirotsu Yukimura
Birthday: December 4th
Occupation: Snow Haven Ice Cream
Shiro is a by the book kind of guy, and prefers following directions rather than winging things. He's responsible and great at getting things done right on time. He likes to say it helps that his workspace and home is neatly organized, and that it helps him think better. Shiro likes to believe that everything has a spirit, and does his best to treat things with respect, nature and magic especially. He enjoys spending his time outside, and says that he feels the most at home when he's reading out in his yard. He's normally quiet due to not using his voice very often. Because of this, Shiro learned sign language, and will communicate through writing when he doesn't feel like speaking. When Shiro does talk, it's usually not for very long, unless he's talking to family or close friends, It's rare for anyone to hear him yell something.
Shiro is honest, and some say he can be insensitive because of that due to him believing that honesty is the best policy. He's terrible at keeping most secrets. He has a tendency to blame himself when things go wrong, and the thought of what he could have done to change an outcome lingers in his mind for days. It's easy to get Shiro to start blushing. When he does blush, Shiro pulls up his scarf to hide it. He easily gets jealous, but is good at hiding it.

As a young kid, Shiro was close to his mother, Yuki, and was taught to respect things in life at a young age. Yuki told him all kinds of stories about the magic of Cholpon, and how she thought that magic was a gift to all who live here. She also told him how nature should be respected for all it does for everyone on the planet. Shiro took her words to heart growing up.
He always loved ice cream. It was his favorite food! Whenever he could, Shiro would put some milk into a bowl and freeze in. A few hours after he'd show his big brother, Bruno, and his parents, Yuki and Boris, his ice cream. After awhile of this happening, Yuki showed him how to make real homemade ice cream. Shiro loved it! He'd often ask to make it, or he'd try making it himself if he knew they had all the ingredients for it. Bruno would often help him with making the ice cream. Shiro liked experimenting with flavors as he grew older. He found some nice combinations this way. Shiro had a good relationship with his brother. Sure they had their arguments, and a rocky relationship at the start. He doesn't know any siblings that doesn't. They always had each others backs growing up.
When he was younger, Shiro and Bruno loved tree climbing. They'd often dare each other to climb higher. One day Bruno was reading a book at the base of the tree while Shiro was climbing up. He wasn't paying attention to where he was putting his feet, and missed a branch. He slipped and fell. On his way down, a branch had cut his throat. He was lucky Bruno had heard the fall and caught him before he hit the ground. Bruno carried Shiro inside and told their parents what happened. Yuki and Boris patched up the cut. Shiro didn't like the scar it gave him, and started hiding it with his scarf. He started talking less since it hurt a little when he talked loudly. From this point on, Shiro started talking softly, even after it healed he continued to either talk softly, or not really talk at all.
A few years after the tree incident, Shiro discovered he could heal injuries after Bruno dropped a cup and shattered it. Bruno was left with a bleeding cut after trying to pick up the pieces. After Shiro healed the cut, he thought he'd be able to heal his scar on his throat this way, but it turned out that his power only works on recent injures. Shiro was disappointed he couldn't heal it, so he made sure to heal any injuries he, his family, or his friends got. He didn't want anyone else to end up with a scar like he did.
After Shiro graduated, he started selling his homemade ice cream around the town. Some strangers pointed out to him that the Snow Haven ice cream shop was hiring, and that they were sure he'd be able to get a job there. He thought it'd be a good idea to try, and was happy when he got the job! He happily works at Snow Haven now. Bruno was allowed to come in from time to time to help out. He enjoys the days where he and his brother are working together. Later on, the two saved enough money and bought a two bedroom house. Since Bruno had his bunny, Shiro thought about getting himself a pet as well. He decided on a ferret that he named Chip. The brothers currently live together and still have a strong bond.
