More VK Fanbook Translations - Kaname

Since it took me so long with Zero, I decided to finish Kaname's profile because I know most people wanted to read Zero's and Kaname's profile the most. I know it was meant to be Yori's profile before Kaname's, but I was closer to finishing his then hers. Plus, Kaname is my favourite character so I couldn't resist to translate the rest of his!

So here is his lovely profile: 

And the translation: 

Belongs to: Cross University, Night department

Age: 18 years

Height: 184cm

Special field: Allmighty

Special ability: allmighty

Level as a vampire: pure blood type

Family: Father (Haruka), Mother (Juuri), both dead

Preferred food: Food made by Yuki

Type of person he likes: A serious-minded girl who waits for him in the snow to arrive.

Hobbies: reading, playing chess, thinking of Yuki

How he spends his holidays: doing all sorts of work; on days when he cannot meet Yuki he sleeps on the sofa in a huff.

The fashion he likes: Haute couture

I found it interesting the Kaname is allmighty. I thought that even purebloods have a power that they are better at using then others, so I was looking forward to seeing what Kaname's special power would be. But I guess I should have expected something like this. He is the person who created vampires after all, so it seems right for him to be the strongest.

Oh, and I want to credit maao15 for the scans. And my family as well who have far better Japanese then me and have helped me translate all the profiles so far.

His age
Doesn't it mention, in parenthesis, that his age is calculated according to vampire years? I wonder if they made that issue clearer in the fanbook somewhere and that we knew just how many vampire years it takes to equal our concept of 1 human year of maturity. In any case, we know Kaname is the oldest. I hope one day we'll know how he adapted in his kid's body and if he suddenly felt like playing kid games once more like when he met Cain, Luca and Aidou.

I find this topic interesting because, as hinted by Ichijou at his birthday party, if vampires age more slowly and he's just reached maturity (18 years old in human years/maturity), then it means their personality also ages more slowly. Otherwise they wouldn't act like teenagers so much, right? Or they wouldn't play in sandboxes if their type of interests grew according to their real age. They'd be bored by kid games way before their bodies caught up to their level of maturity. Makes them more composed and knowledgeable and not so surprised about the world around them anymore, but it still shows in their attitude, their not being married and their actions that they are not adults mentally.

Re: His age
In the fanbook it has a chapter called 'The Vampire Report' where it might possibly say how many vampire years are equal to human years in accordance to age, but I haven't looked at that part yet, so I'm not sure if it will be >_< . It just seems the most likely.

I say though that you are right in that vampires age by how mature they are, and therefore they mature and age slowly.

When I reach the Vampire Report I'll see if there is anything there.

Re: His age
Thanks! I got the confirmation that the profile indicates that Kaname's age is equal to 18 human years. Must mean that from now on, he will stop 'aging' in body like the other Night Class students. Unless Purebloods age differently. Of course we're talking about 'this life' as Kaname Kuran, not as the Ancestor Kuran. So his body is 18 years old while his soul is very old!
