10 to 11: Whitlam Bilby
12 to present: Tallygarunga, Sturt house
Suho has a very large and, he'd state this with unfiltered matter-of-factness, chaotic family. A melting pot of vibrant personalities (each one more snarky and sarcastic than the last, he would like to add), he has had the privilege of landing on the third rung of the ladder from the bottom. Which is to say, put plainly, he packs a massive punch of what people close to the family like to call the "Kyun Special".
His brand of affection is very mean. In fact, it has been known to bring people to tears. If you haven't at least heard of the infamous boy of Sixth Year, the one who never seems to age, the one with a glare capable of melting steel, the one with the sexy Irish accent, then you must have been living under a rock. Suho is hundred percent transparent and there's no pussyfooting about with him. Always the realest, he will be that friend who tells you your new haircut absolute sucks a- let's not go that far. One thing's for sure though, he is honest as anyone can be in delivering his opinions, even if you might end up hating him for it. With that, he's not the first person you would go to for a good cry and a pat on the back. You can bet Suho's going to make you do a whole lot more crying by saying things he shouldn't, or by simply sitting there after listening to your rant and going all, "so, what's your issue." Not the most empathetic person on the block, apparently.
If there were anyone in the family you would suspect to be involved in some sort of shady deed, it would be Suho pegged as the best contender given that he usually keeps to himself and has the cold look down pat. While one might have expected him to show even a sliver of affection to his own siblings, he is as equally rough with them as he is with anyone else: pushing his brothers off the bed if they refused to get up, messing with his sisters' shampoo, blasting music so loud he should have gone deaf by now. Yet they all love him. And without knowing, so do you. Probably. Suho has the sort of charm that inadvertently persuades those around him, and being a Dhampir doesn't help either. Beyond his clinical intelligence and viper's tongue, he is steadfast and conscientious, with a tendency to give into heroics or dispense some pretty solid advice though half the time he isn't even trying to be nice.
He's not all thorn bushes and killer stares. Suho does have a moral compass in the end, after all, and it only comes natural to him to feel bad or guilty after doing something regrettable (which he does more often than not), but other than those private moments of pensiveness, he's every bit a loose cannon and pretty much operates outside any grown-up's control. Sometimes, his friends tend to wonder why they keep him around for as long as they do, but let's say you would want him on your side rather than against you. It's a Dhampir thing, apparently.
People wonder if there's a drop of Veela genes in that blood, a blood already tainted by that of a Vampire's, and look upon the boy with a heightened sense of awe. Or is it disgust? Suho's face is a difficult one to look at directly. Perhaps it is because he deflects wayward ogles as easily as swatting flies. No matter, it is evident that he must have been blessed (but the entire Kyun family's blessed) and that surely, that flawless skin and striking eyes aren't in the least natural. As Dhampirs, Suho and his siblings age so incredibly slowly one wouldn't have been able to spot many differences between their baby pictures and the present. He is still visibly child-like, with large, dark eyes fringed with long lashes, a perfectly straight nose and lips that seem painstakingly carved during the time of his creation. Sculpted. Defined. Exquisite. Call it an exaggeration, but few are able to find words to deny so upon meeting Suho for the very first time.
He is fairly tall at 180 cm, and at only 16, he is estimated to shoot up even more (his father is still taller, and so are some of his brothers). Lean and extremely athletic, any sort of activity to do with physical movement or sports is little more than a game to Suho, for he often conducts them with effortless ease, albeit he does like moving very much. There is... Hardly any sort of physical flaw to his physique. Incredibly unfair. Suho likes to say he more than makes up for that with his unlikeable personality. He is the type of person to throw on anything comfortable and within reach, and with his well-proportioned frame and long legs, he is almost always able to pull it off, no matter how awful his colour choices might be. With that, he tends to gravitate towards darker hues like black and if not black, then you'd probably spot him in white.
Apart from his appearance, Suho has a very purposeful way of walking. His strides are long and light and structured, in a sense. As of right now his hair is a fair brown hue, though it was naturally dark, and he's been known to mess around with rather striking shades like pink before. Can't say he hates it exactly.
Is this something you can buy on Amazon? Suho certainly has tons of students who want to be his friend, but why, he just can't fathom. It's not like he's incredibly awful with the art of friend-making, but more like people eventually figure that it's more trouble than it's worth. How often would one like to deal with a snarky Dhampir boy with a history of, ahem, violence?
But if Suho smiles at you in any way, it is evident he feels comfortable enough with you to do so. His way of caring is also very indirect, so much so that it seems he's simply trying to be selfish or benefit himself, and so mean it doesn't seem like he's even remotely trying to be nice at all. With that, physical contact comes very easily to him, such as punching you in the shoulder or nudging you in the ribs, and when in doubt, know that who he touches is usually the best indicator of whether they are in his good books or not.
The miracle family. He has never seen another like his before in his life, for it is a well-known fact that most Dhampir children don't even make it to birth. With so many siblings, he finds it easy to blend into the background, to simply mingle and be one of them rather than stand out, which is what he prefers most of the time. Other than the usual chaos that comes with seven children, he would proudly say that is family is normal and healthy.
Of all his siblings, Suho spends most time with Hyemi and the twins, Haneul and Kihyun. He feels somewhat indebted to them somehow for pulling him through the violence case when he was 11, but that is not to say that he doesn't feel comfortable with the rest of his brothers and sisters. It isn't uncommon for him to seek them out in school whenever he feels like it and quite often they seem to see him as a little burden for the boy never seems to want to make friends of his own (and partly also because he takes silent satisfaction in exposing all their humiliating past doings to their friends, which to their chagrin).
Suho is sure that if he looks hard, he'll be able to find admirers in every nook and cranny. It is no wonder why, but it doesn't mean he likes it, either. He has always been pretty detached from the student population and in the romance department, is as wet behind the ears as anyone can be. This usually comes as a surprise to those to hear about it. For some reason, while most would find him desirable, they seem to have disregarded his rather high maintenance cost. Suho isn't savage, sarcastic and frosty for nothing. In fact, he's more likely to be a thorn in your side rather than a steady lover.
As for as crushes go, however, he can't say he's never had them. And he can't say he's ever told anyone. The ice prince has a reputation to uphold, after all.
Suho's secretly convinced that everyone hates him He has made who knows how many enemies in his lifetime, a glaring example being the classmate he had literally tossed into the wall when he was 11. He would have made a whole lot more for his brutal honesty, yet for some reason people can't seem to hold a lasting grudge on him. Perhaps it's his charm. The power of seduction that Dhampirs come packaged with? Suho grasps the concept of dislike well, for very often it is him doing all the disliking.
But pushing people's buttons has always been his speciality. He toys with his words, actions, mannerisms, till you would be thoroughly frustrated and seething at the sheer nerve of this boy. Yet he always knows when to draw back, even just a little, before whoever has become the target of his good fun decides to pull out their wand and hex him there and then. Being a complete jerk is also a skill. A talent.
So he was a Dhampir. No big deal. Nothing to shout about.
His friends in Ireland didn't seem to think so. Some idolised the Kyuns. Other shunned them. Taboo, they would utter beneath their breaths, fearful of being overheard. Taboo to be associated with the undead. And that was what they referred Vampires or any sort of folk even remotely related to them - undead. Suho loved Ireland, and at the same time hated it. It was with an odd mixture of dysphoria and relief when they finally moved to South Korea, messed around in Canada for a bit, back to South Korea, and finally down to Australia.
The fact that Suho even has sisters (or such a large family in general) is something to marvel at, for the odds of such an occurrence are, in his mother's own words, next to none. In a family of seven children (Hyemi at 12, Minho at 14, the great Suho himself at 16, Haneul and Kihyun at 17, Mina at 18 and finally Eunwoo at 19), Suho has had his fair share of being pushed around, coddled, and being the object of chaos. In school, he was always faster, stronger, one step ahead of the rest, and he resented it as much as they did.
But Suho was never good at talking feelings. Or at the emotional aspect of things. He hurt more people than he should have and at the age of 11, committed what many would deem the unforgivable - injure his classmate. It had been so easy to simply flip him over to shut him up... Except in Suho's case this flipping over ended up to be nearly pummelling him through the wall. Needless to say, the situation was messy, sticky, and it was all his ruddy fault. He was suspended for a bit while the school attempted to sort things out with his parents, who returned home so coldly disappointed in him for the first time in his life the boy was duly frightened.
It was his sister Hyemi and the twins that broke the cold spell surrounding him and the rest of the family, and for that till this day Suho feels most attached to them. He returned to school more volatile than ever under the warning that should he turn to violence once again the next punishment meted out would be expulsion. Suho attempted to slip back into the normal rhythm of things but no matter what, he knew he had already done what he had been trying to avoid his whole life - brand himself as a dangerous creature. A being that needed to be chained. The classmate that he had wounded? He had transferred out, but not before effectively tearing apart a young Suho's reputation in his wake.
Helpless and frustrated, Suho now only stuck to himself and turned to Quidditch for company. It was also during this period when he befriended a bunch of wizards from school where one of them had a Muggle family involved in the mafia. Though Suho never really fully immersed himself in their activities (he was much too clever not to lead himself completely astray) their presence filled up the loneliness in him for a good period of time till he finally put his foot down. He does know they want him to return... But he's sure he's had enough of such shady dealings for a bit. Besides, imagine how ballistic his parents would be if they ever found out.
Even though the incident has faded with the years, he still vividly remembers it with bitterness, and tends to see all potential friends around him as enemies. Till he finds it in him to forgive himself, Suho settles with disobeying professors, messing with his classmates, and swinging his broomstick at those who try to poke fun.
