Killing is mean, you silly rat.
____ Yukis on violent crime.
Yukis "Yuke" Amoden is the deuteragonist of Coloring Book. Due to a mixture of his extreme personality and inherit bad luck, Yukis always ends up caught up into the troubles and major incidents of the story. Even though he tries his best to be a friendly and helpful person, his clueless and innocent nature usually makes him just as much of a nuisance to society as Cori.
Yukis is incredibly timid and sheltered. He seems to have a very backwards understanding of most social norms and he often gets into difficult situations due to his lack of understanding. Deep down inside his biggest desire is to be good but he isn't really that good at being good. He will often put others before himself in such a way where he becomes a pushover and he doesn't seem to value his dignity when it gets in the way of his "kindness". In addition to this behavior he also exhibits a childlike fear and intolerance to multiple subjects. Yukis is incapable of viewing or any violent content even if it is fictional. He is also incapable of viewing or discussing any negative subjects such as death, sorrow or misfortune. This is most likely due to the fact that he associates such works with reality and he believes that rejecting such themes makes him a better person. In possible relation to these dispositions, Yukis does not have good control over certain emotions. He is highly sensitive and will often cry for petty reasons leading others to mistreat him. He also exhibits an abnormal fear of the darkness and frightening images so much to a point where he can be rendered incapable of sleeping or being alone.
Despite his intolerance of violence and negative content, he is somewhat immune to sexual content no matter how graphic it is. This is one of the few places where Yukis is arguable more mature than most of those around him. He is incredibly educated in the subject of sexuality and is completely comfortable discussing it or viewing it. This is most likely due to his parents who work in the adult industry and who hold a very positive view of sexual expression.
In some respects, Yukis is somewhat of a hedonist.
In contrast to Cori, Yukis is mostly positive and content with the world and his life despite the difficulties he has had to endure. Though he is sensitive and thoughtful in general, Yukis is not really affected by the rejection or the abuse of others. He is extremely forgiving to those who wrong him and he holds all of his priority in his parents who completely love and accept him the way he is.
It is unknown if Yukis suffers from some sort of development disability such as autism, he does seem to portray multiple symptoms of the disorder but it is never mentioned or even hinted so this is unlikely. Yukis is sometimes going to be portrayed as too innocent to understand certain subjects while at other times he is going to have a childish solution to everything and is actually going to come out as more mature or wise than everyone around him. This quality puts him on the same level as Cori when it comes to how he impacts and interlopes with the world around him.
Abilities and Skills Edit
Even though he is extremely socially inept, his ignorance helps him more than what would be expected. Yukis believes that everyone in the world is inherently good and that everyone can learn to get along and live peacefully if they all put forth the effort.

Even though this action does not grant him the desired outcome, it is a very good conditioner for his sanity, especially when he is being constantly harassed or tormented by others.
Yukis is extremely resilient towards insults and cruel practical jokes that are often inflicted upon him. Even though he does not show it, he has a very healthy self esteem and he does not take many of the attacks of others personally.

When backed into a corner or put into a situation where he is forced to fight, Yukis will often question the person attacking him or try to convince them that what they are doing is wrong. If angered enough he will often use very weak insults and comebacks to try to deter his attackers from tormenting him any further, though this is particularly rare.

Yukis is usually fast enough to outrun his pursuers and he usually avoids fighting as much as he can. When he is forced to fight, Yukis will usually curl up into a ball and take a beating rather than having to hit and hurt another person. If he can, he will try to defeat the person without actually physically harming them, this usually involves the throwing of items such as food or soft drinks and or distracting his attackers by pulling their pants down.
