the swim team's hope
When I'm snuggled with Maro is when I'm happiest.
Arata is a talented diver, but the first things the player will notice are his odd way of speaking and the fact that he's always carrying around his pet ferret, Maro. Arata is cheery but strange, laughing at everything and acting evasive if someone tries to get close.
This is Arata's profile as it appears on the official GH2 website, plus some additional basic information.

|His personality is friendly, but he's fickle and that can suddenly disappear. Sensitive to heat and cold. He wants to hear about people, but doesn't really talk about himself. He likes to poke his nose when there is fun and tease, but basically stays a spectator. Normally even tempered and frivolous. He doesn't get very surprised or angry or sad. Doesn't like fighting and wants to be laid-back. Sometimes gets sharp. Tends to lose his cellphone and doesn't make calls from his phone much. He seems delicate to other people and is focused on doing things his own way.|

|Sociable, good at listening. doesn't like fighting, reads the mood (but purposefully interrupts it). Has a spirit of volunteering, not balking at doing work others dislike and find bothersome. He sees things as a calm observer.||doesn't show his feelings. somewhat stubborn and self-absorbed|
He found him abandoned and injured in middle school. Because his parents found pets too troublesome to take care of, it was his first time having a pet. He doesn't particularly like animals, but animals really like him. He's never killed a plant or animal he raised for a school research project. Because both parents are often out of the house with work, he brought Maro with him when he entered BL School. He was taught how to talk to cats by a cute boy with glasses he met at the school.
