His name might be Joshua, but it could just as well be Big Chief No Fun of the I-Don’t-Wanna tribe. Sporting a more respectable fashion consisting of designer jeans, open-button clubbing shirt, and New Balance kicks, Joshua is obviously ahead of his years as a teenager. It’s probably his snotty, pretentious attitude that alienates him from Neku. You know - things like which Ninja Turtle is better, why Radiohead sucks - and the like. The only reason he’s still around is because of his vital tips regarding the Game.
As the polar opposite to Neku, Beat doesn’t mind telling you like it is. Prone to emotional outbursts - be they raging or weepy - his heart can cloud his mind, leading to more than one sticky situation. With an affinity for oversized skate shorts and a skull-hat ready to swallow his head, Beat’s always cruisin’ for a bruisin’ with gal pal partner and fellow Game player, Rhyme.
Cursed with a never say die attitude and chipper-as-hell spunk, Rhyme’s one big walking smiley emoticon. Early on, she’s the glue that holds Neku and Shiki together, while encouraging her partner, Beat. Even if she’s not comfortable enough to show off her midriff like Shiki, Rhyme’s got an oversized maternity sweater to hide her shame. It doesn’t stop her from sporting those lovely stems, though.
