Mana didn't change to much since the last drawings… but considering his character doesn't exist for too long… it's pretty normal… I guess
I've depicted Mana Rasuto in the traditional clothing he used to wear when he was a kid, and which he still wears when he visits his homeland, Luxran. Mana's origins lay in the terribly hot desert of Luxran, in a little place called Imemu. That's where he and his sister grew up, and where he learned how to survive in the desert.
Imemu was a desolate village at the border of the Luxranian desert where a lot of old people lived. Because of the desert climate, Imemu was hardly impossible to reach by normal people and the emperor didn't have much influence there. Mana's parents where both doctors that took care of the people in the village. Because of that, Mana and his sister were also treated with a lot of respect.
What Mana didn't know was that he was the heir to an extremely powerful bloodline of element users. Both his parents possessed great powers, but they didn't use them much in public. Mana never knew why, until the day the emperor found out about the location of Mana's parents and decided to burn the complete town. Both Mana's parents were taken and killed. Because Mana and his sister were still kids, they were considered harmless. They're both send to separate boarding schools and put under surveillance of the government.
They were said to meet again when Mana turned 18, but his sister committed suicide even before that. They never saw each other again. Eventually Mana turned 18 years old. He'd learned about his origin and was already a very dangerous element user by then. It only got worse. As the government stopped watching him, Mana traveled around the world to learn about his powers.
As the years passed, Mana became more and more powerful. Nowadays he looks like a calm young man, but his looks are pretty deceiving. Mana is already over 200 years old, his body just stopped aging at a certain point. The apparent calmness surrounding him is just an illusion as well. Without a real goal to life for and without people that loved him, he got mad a long time ago…
