Inasa Yoarashi (
Inasa is a very tall and well built young man with buzzed, dark brown hair and black eyes.
In his school uniform, Inasa wears the same white collared shirt and dark pants as all Shiketsu High students. He also sports Shiketsu's signature hat whether he be in uniform or in his hero costume.
Inasa's Hero costume consists of a thick burgundy suit pinned together with yellow buttons. A cape is draped over his shoulders, the collar lined with thick fur, and it almost conceals the jetpack-like propulsion system attached to his back. His left arm is completely concealed by the thick, brown material and his hand sports a large tan glove with air pipes on it, whereas his right arm is completely exposed other than the skintight blue sleeve that appears to be apart of his undersuit. Similarly to his left hand, are several tubes around his torso and ankles, which are used to expel wind power to aid with his Quirk. Plates resembling gas masks pad his knees and left shoulder, and he completes his costume with large brown shoes and a pair of goggles around his head.
Inasa is an energetic, hyperactive, and enthusiastic young man who expresses himself with vigor. He's very loud and can come off as obnoxious but he's actually oddly polite and speaks very formally most of the time. Inasa claims there is almost nothing he dislikes, and growing up as a kid he enjoyed everything. Inasa has a habit of approaching strangers to try and make friends with them. Sometimes he gets so worked up that he'll start talking emphatically about being passionate, and the person or people he's talking to tend to get confused.
Inasa's signature trait is his undying love for passion above all else. He believes all heroes should have a fiery passion that motivates them to help others. Inasa also appears to enjoy passionate battles and desires to be a part of them.
Inasa disapproves of heroes who do not have hot spirits and believes people filled with hatred are unfit to be heroes and he refuses to recognize them as such. This is why Inasa hates Endeavor and his son Shoto. Both of them had cold angry eyes when Inasa met them and both of them blew him off despite his warm greetings. Inasa's grudge against the Todorokis eventually drove him to become the type of person he hated. He had cold angry eyes whenever he encountered Shoto during the hero licensing exam and even told him to his face that he hated him. Inasa hated Shoto so much so that it cost him his provisional hero license the first time around because they refused to work together. This caused Inasa to reflect on himself and apologize to Shoto following the exam. Despite the fact that he still hates Shoto in the end, Inasa was sincere to him, showing that his hatred of him has toned down. Inasa's animosity towards Shoto, and soon Endeavor, subsided entirely by the time of the Remedial Exam.
Overall Abilities: Inasa is a very powerful hero-in-training who earned the top score in the U.A. Entrance Exam for recommended students. This means that his abilities are believed to be above that of Shoto Todoroki, one of U.A. High School's strongest students. Even though he withdrew his application from U.A. High School, Inasa established himself as one of the most powerful students at Shiketsu High School.
Inasa also possesses a great handle on his powerful Quirk, Whirlwind. He can channel various wind currents at once and manipulate them to move debris and people without making them collide with one another. Offensively, Inasa often sends strong gusts of wind at his opponents, effectively blowing them away. Defensively, Whirlwind is effective at deflecting projectiles and giving Inasa the maneuverability to evade incoming attacks, as his Quirk also enables him to fly. Inasa is able to propel himself off the ground through wind bursts as well, which grants him a speed boost that does not require the aid of his hero costume. Due to his proficient Quirk handling, Inasa was able to pass the first test of the Provisional Hero License Exam on his own (a test normally reserved for second-year students) while eliminating 120 other examinees at the same time.
In the final stage of the licensing exam, Inasa and Shoto faced off against Gang Orca, the No. 12 (formerly No. 10) Pro Hero. But due to the pair's personal conflict with each other, Inasa's Whirlwind clashed with Shoto's Half-Cold Half-Hot Quirk because heat from the latter's flames compromises the airflow, leading to the pair being subdued by Gang Orca and his sidekicks. Fortunately, Izuku Midoriya intervened and chided Inasa and Shoto, making the immobile duo realize their respective errors in judgement, and finally worked together. With their newfound camaraderie, Inasa and Shoto combined their elemental powers to create a tornado of fire that engulfed Gang Orca, nearly defeating the Killer Whale Hero. In the aftermath of the licensing exam, Gang Orca noted that if the battle had been drawn out any longer, he would have been defeated by the collaboration of Shoto, Inasa, and the newly-arrived Izuku.
Indomitable Spirit: Inasa possesses an indomitable spirit, constantly exercising and practicing his hot-blooded philosophy. As a child, Inasa's fiery demeanor was temporarily shaken when Endeavor coldly rebuffed Inasa's friendly personality. Years later, during U.A. Entrance Exam for recommended students, Inasa was similarly rebuked by Shoto, causing to Inasa to emotionally snap, redact his U.A. High School application, and develop cold disposition towards Shoto and Endeavor for their previous callousness.
Inasa's resolve became rather erratic during the Provisional Licensing Exam, wherein he had a re-encounter and major altercation with Shoto, having carried a grudge against him since their first meeting. The eventual infighting between the two elemental users resulted in them being repeatedly unable to land an attack on Gang Orca and were left at the mercy of him and his sidekicks. Soon after, however, Izuku arrived on the scene and scolded Shoto and Inasa for their actions, making the weakened students realize their mistake with being uncooperative with one another. The pair reaffirmed their convictions, put their differences aside, and finally worked together, despite being incapacitated. Unfortunately, their personal conflict with each other cost them the licensing exam, and had to take remedial courses to make up for their imprudence and failure.
Inasa realised the consequences of his obsessive contempt towards Endeavor and Shoto, acknowledging the fact that he had blindly become the type of person he hates the most: cold and hate-filled. Having undergone self-reflection, Inasa and Shoto displayed fully mutual congeniality towards each other when they crossed paths again at the Remedial Exam. But Inasa did scorn at Endeavor's presence at the makeup course, displaying that while the aerokinetic is now on good terms with Shoto, it isn’t the same in regards to Endeavor. At the end of the Remedial Exam's first day, Inasa overheard Endeavor's proclamation of becoming a hero of whom Shoto can be proud, and saw that there was no trace of emnity in the eyes of the Flame Hero. That very moment, Inasa recognized the change in Endeavor, discarded his animosity towards the Flame Hero, and declared that he will be cheering for the new No. 1 Hero, who openly accepted Inasa's cordiality. Inasa still holds onto his beliefs, but understood that he too needs to move forward. Overall, Inasa's reinvigorated will allowed him to see past the blinding feelings of malice and become a more proactive, hot-blooded individual who can recognize the efforts of even those whom he once loathed.
He can create incredible gusts of wind, and has extremely precise control over them, being able to delicately handle people while clearing away rubble using various different types of winds.
Inasa is also able to use whirlwinds for offensive purposes. He can attack his enemies and blow them away with gusts powerful enough to break apart solid ice. He can also use the wind to increase his own mobility, and with aid from his costume, he's even able to fly.
Battles and Events
|Battles & Events|
- Inasa's surname contains the kanji for "night" (夜 yo?) and "storm" (嵐 arashi?), and his first name is written in katakana and thus has no accurate kanji reading, but can refer to the strong winds that occur during typhoon season in Japan.
- As well as being in reference to strong winds, Inasa's first name can also indicate a direction; originating east before heading westward. This could reflect the fact that Inasa had the initial intent to attend U.A (East) before he made the decision to attend Shiketsu (West).

- Inasa likes hot blood.
- Horikoshi exclaims that his hero costume is very hard to draw.
