Personality

Beast Complex

He is a pretty happy boy, always looking for opportunities to see his childhood friend Mog during recess hours. The two of them are very close, but once Gon was 10 years old they were separated to different buildings inside the boarding school for security reasons. This fact led to a conflict with Gon, who saw this rule as stupid, because they distanced him from his friend, with whom he always had very funny conversations. In the eyes of the other animals of the boarding school that friendship was very badly seen. In spite of that they continued to see each other and even tried to expose the carnivores of higher degrees to raise awareness with the younger carnivores so that the gap between carnivores and herbivores will be reduced and try to eliminate that rule that drives them all away, without solving the real problem. The companions of greater degree tried to convince Gon to join them, to continue intimidating the herbivores, but the strong conviction of justice of Gon was greater. He wanted to be the strongest of all to protect his friend, but despite all their efforts to expose them, the event was hidden. The guilty were only given one month of suspension and Mog and Gon were only given protection from now on.

After this series of events, Mog confess to Gon that at that moment he was afraid that this was his true nature. Even though he always shows that he is kind, he hides his potential and for this fact believes that one day they are bound to go their seperate ways, but in spite of that it is not a reason to be sad.

Beastars

Now as an adult, he is a little more calm about his personality as a young man. As the headmaster of Cherryton High School he has shown interest in seeing his students grow up without having to suffocate them; this is a fact that he reaffirmed in the board of directors to choose the next candidates for a Beastar. Where he affirms that youth is a very hard stage, it is the moment in which one falls in love, one questions his own value in society, where one begins to have the first disagreements with his wild instincts and that in spite of that the current education system tries to make you bear a great responsibility to your students, even more to those who are candidates to be a Beastar.
