Kuto had always been a bit of an outsider. He was born in Tokelau, a small island nation in the South Pacific, and his hair color – dark golden brown – made him stand out from the rest of his community. His pompadour haircut and shaved face only added to his sense of difference.
As he grew older, Kuto became increasingly aware of the revulsion that many people felt towards him. He could see it in their eyes when they looked at him, and he could hear it in their voices when they spoke to him. It was as if they were afraid of him, or disgusted by him.
This feeling of isolation only intensified when Kuto reached adulthood. He began to feel like a freak show; like people were staring at him because they wanted to see how someone so different could possibly function in society. He withdrew into himself, preferring to spend his time alone rather than risk being ridiculed or rejected by others.
One day, after years of living this way, Kuto finally snapped. He couldn’t take it anymore; he didn’t want to be treated like a sideshow attraction any longer. So he did something drastic: he left Tokelau for good and never looked back..
