Kuto was born in Timor-Leste, a small island nation in the eastern Indian Ocean. His life was filled with melancholy from the start. His parents died when he was just a child, and he was raised by his grandparents. They were kind to him, but they couldn’t fill the void that his parents’ deaths had left in his heart.
As he grew older, Kuto became increasingly withdrawn and reclusive. He took solace in books and music, and found beauty in nature, particularly in the green forests of his homeland. But there was always an underlying sadness to his life.
When Kuto turned 18, he decided to leave home and see some of the world beyond Timor-Leste. He traveled to many different countries, but never found anywhere that felt like home. Eventually he ended up back on his small island nation, where he felt most at peace.
Kuto has a green backward cap, which is symbolic of his connection to nature. His hair color is terracotta – another nod to his roots on Timor-Leste – and he has a shaved face. He wears a red polo shirt as a reminder of all the blood that has been shed on this land throughout its history
