Rody Soul to Izuku Midoriya in "World Heroes' Mission"

Rody Soul (ロディ・ソウル Rodi Sōru?) is a resident of Otheon in My Hero Academia: World Heroes' Mission.

Appearance

Rody is a young man with spiky brown hair that he has tied back, along with gray eyes and sun-kissed skin.

He wears a red bandanna along with a pair of sunglasses on his head, as well as a pale blue button-up shirt with a number of patches and a tan-beige jacket with an orange flower sticking out from the left chest pocket. He wears a pair of thick, gray gloves and a blue and red striped tie. He also wears a pair of black pants that stop just above his ankles with patches on the knees, as well as a pair of dark brown shoes with a gray cloth wrapped around each of them.

Personality

Rody is a very carefree individual who always looks for an opportunity for a job to support his younger brother and sister. When interacting with clients or certain individuals in the way of his work, he tries to smooth talk them or over-exaggerates to get away from serious situations.

Due to his father leaving him and his siblings at a young age, and how the community shunned them for their father's involvement with Humarise, Rody is a caring big brother who always places his siblings as his first priority. His siblings are so important to him that he will do anything to ensure their safety and well-being; even if it means considering an enemy's demands. Though Rody does have a sense of chivalry and trust towards the people he gets along with.

While Rody does not hate heroes, he does not consider them in high regards as there are not many heroes in the Shanty Town of Otheon as hero agencies cannot gain a great deal of profit from working in the slums. With the lack of heroes, the increase of crime and his past, Rody has developed a "life is unfair" point of view where he expects that people will treat others unfairly and resort to foul play to get what they want. Because of this, he’s become willing to resort to theft and unlawful deeds if it means getting by and supporting his siblings.

Rody tries to keep sensitive emotions to himself, but his Quirk makes it easy for people to notice what he is really feeling.

Rody dreams to one day be a pilot and is invested in pursuing that dream.[2]

Quirk

Soul ( (ソウル) Sōru?): Rody's Quirk manifests as a small bird-like animal named Pino. Pino is linked to Rody's soul and her actions reflect his inner feelings, even if he tries to hide it, effectively preventing him from lying.

While not very powerful, Pino does prove to be quite useful on occasion. Rody can give her directions to act upon and she can come to his aid by distracting enemies. She can also perform certain actions for Rody while he’s incapable.
