Kuto was born on the small island of Pitcairn, surrounded by nothing but endless blue ocean. He grew up fishing and swimming in the crystal clear waters, and playing in the sand with his friends. But as he got older, Kuto’s life began to fill with sadness. His parents died when he was just a teenager, leaving him all alone on the island. Then, one day, Kuto woke up to find that his hair was falling out in clumps. He had developed a condition called alopecia universalis, which caused him to go completely bald. As if that wasn’t bad enough, Kuto’s hair also began to change color – it turned a rusty red hue that made him look even more different from everyone else on the island.

With no family or friends to support him, Kuto became increasingly isolated and depressed. He stopped going out altogether and spent most of his days indoors. The only thing that gave him any joy anymore was listening to music – particularly classical music which reminded him of happier times gone by.

One day, after months of living in self-imposed isolation, Kuto decided enough was enough; he couldn’t spend the rest of his life hiding away from the world. So he shaved off all his remaining hair (including his beard), put on a grey hoodie and went outside for the first time in months
