I don't really dislike any, but I guess that I don't do a lot of superheroes or high school ones. Not that I am not interested in them. Oh dear, I am rambling.

Appearance:
Hikari has the appearance of a teenage girl that is not missing anything. With blonde hair, and a pair of very light brown, bordering yellow eyes, she has a vibrant appearance. She will normally have a couple of side buns above her ears, rolled in a simple manner.

She will normally sport the standard clothing for a shinobi, trying to not stand out, and even when not on missions, she will opt to go for simpler clothing, despite her family’s fortune and prestige.

On her right arm there are a couple of burn marks, both small in size, yet with an identical, circular shape. Both are close enough to the back of her hand that allow them to be exposed partially even if she wears long-sleeved shirts.




Personality:
Hikari can be described as a rather neutral person at first sight. She doesn’t try to stand out, but will perform things as requested. At the same time, however, she will quietly take initiative, if it is allowed, and perform things beyond what is required, often conflicting with her desire to not stand out. On missions, she will do her best to work alongside others, despite not having much experience with this.

When it comes to fighting, she isn’t the most calculating or calm person, but she does try to stay aware of the environment around her the best she can. Due to not having much training with her Tanto, she feels slightly less confident using it in battle, despite trying to take it out as often as she is able to.

While not in missions or in combat, Hikari tends to be a bit more relaxed, but still won’t show it well. She will keep Maintaining a posture fitting for a noble lady and the mindset that she still needs to be doing more things, as idle hands are bad for a lady to have.



History:
Born to Masaki and Kana Torimoto in the middle of the great war, Hikari was raised in what many would consider to be a more luxurious lifestyle. Her father, coming from a noble family in the Water Country, had attempted to make sure Hikari did not need to see any kind of mentions of the war in the last two years, and even after, he made extra efforts to prevent her from seeing anything he considered to be harsh.

When she got to the age of 6, Hikari started showing signs of being capable of using chakra. Scared of what this might entail, her parents were quick to consult Masaki’s parents, who gave Hikari’s father the instruction to let them take over raising her, to ensure she will become a lady and not some war-mongering shinobi. While the couple were briefly hesitant, Hikari’s grandfather, Teiji Torimoto, promised the two she will be the ideal daughter once he is done with raising her.

Being raised in her grandparents estate was nothing short of brutal in Hikari’s memories. She was consistently instructed to follow a very specific set of instructions, and any attempts to divert from them was met with some kind of punishment. Several times she attempted to view or learn something that Teiji did not approve of, which ended up with Hikari receiving a physical punishment. There were two instances in which Hikari was burnt, leaving a mark to ensure she tries to not stray towards topics that Teiji found to be absolutely despicable.

At the age of 10, when her parents came to visit, Teiji welcomed his song and daughter in law as expected, showing them the improvement he had performed with their daughter. Kana, however, saw her daughter’s misery, and after talking to Masaki for two days, ended up convincing him to take over from Teiji with raising their daughter. Furious, Teiji denounced Kana, telling her she was no family to him, and that if Masaki allows Hikari to follow suit, she will be denounced as well. Having made up his mind, Masaki still took Hikari away. Teiji’s denouncement of Hikari was made public not too long after.

Living with her parents again, Hikari’s confidence to explore things had been shaken up. It was further shaken when she learned that her grandmother, Hiromi, had passed away, but she was not allowed to go visit the grave. Kana decided to sit down with Hikari and talk to her about how things were. Not understanding what she had done wrong, Kana told her she was free to explore whatever she desired now, without fear. Hikari decided she wanted to explore the feeling that she felt once before, when she experienced chakra. While reluctant at first, Kana told her she understood and said she’d support her the best she could. Masaki, upon learning of this choice, elected to leave the house and move to live on his own, not willing to bare the thought of his daughter going in the path of a war-monger.

While Kana began working in order to provide for the family, Hikari started looking over some of the village’s shinobi training, hoping to better understand how to utilize chakra by doing so. While she did catch how some of the movement was performed, she realized that without the more basic understanding, she would be unable to actually perform anything.

At the age of 12, she approached the academy, hoping to try and make it into the place, with the support of her mother. While she was accepted, she never made it more than a month in, as the oppression of Shoji over the Shinobi had came into effect. This made Hikari fall into a depression, as once more something influenced her life and prevented her from exploring the path she wished to take. Without much other option, she went and joined her mother in working at a job, helping provide for the household in an attempt to slightly ease her mother’s work. While Hikari could only perform odd jobs, she always felt her mother’s appreciation for doing so.

During the oppression, Teiji Torimoto came by Kana’s house. While her mother wasn’t there, Hikari was surprised to see him come by, and offered him to enter, but he declined, saying he was stopping by only for a moment. He informed her that he heard from Masaki of her chosen path, and while he could not approve of it, as he still did not find it fitting for a noble lady, he knew her grandmother’s family would’ve been proud. Hikari then learned that her grandmother, Hiromi, came from a line of warriors that ended with her, and seemed to try and surface once more through Hikari. He then offered her a tanto, telling his granddaughter it was Hiromi’s prized possession, and to take great care of it. Departing, Hikari looked at it with awe, as though she had just gained motivation to keep trying to go towards her goal, regardless of the limitations placed on her by the oppression. She began training herself with basic strikes, doing so in secret as even though she was not a shinobi, she didn’t want to be caught training with a weapon at these times, but felt as though she had to.

Once Shoji’s oppression had ended, Hikari had went to reenter the academy, and managed to do so successfully. Passing the academy, however, proved to be more of a challenge for her. She had failed to successfully pass the academy two years in a row, finding the Ninjutsu bit to be the hardest. While she was able to mimic the movements properly, she had a hard time understanding the basics behind the movements, what needs to occur behind.

During those years, Hikari also saw the Water Country face an attack from the Six Tails, which brought more anger towards the fifth Mizukage, before the Mizukage faced her own demise. This led to the rise of the Republic, which Hikari felt conflicted about. Her grandfather, who was a nobleman, now was among The Members of Honour, the people who wanted the republic to honor the days of old, while her father, Masaki, chose to stand against his father in The Sons of Kaizoku faction, believing the Republic should increase its power further. Even though she did not have as much interaction with either, she did hear about actions both took in the names of their factions, which only brought more confusion to her mind whenever she thought of it.

At her third attempt, she passed the Academy, and Hikari felt overjoyed. Now all she needed was to wait to be assigned to a team, and keep walking forward in the path she wanted to take.

Yazawa.Niko.full.1819810.jpg

Name: Himiko Harurei

Nickname: N/A

Rank:
Genin

Organization: Republic of Water





  • Bloodline: N/A

    Gender: Female

    Age and date of birth: 16; 7/15

    Age Appearance: Typical Female Teenager

    Sexuality: Unexplored




  • Length and build: 5'4; Thin build

    Weight: 119 lbs

    Favourite weather and season: Storms, Spring



  • Personality:

    Reserved:
    Himiko isn’t much of an outgoing social butterfly, being more of one to keep her voice low and head down. It isn’t to say she completely lacks confidence, rather it’s simply that she just isn’t a totally excitable person by nature. She normally enjoys quiet activities, such as studying, reading, painting, and often trains by herself unless she is interested in learning something new. However, when it comes to people closer in age to her, if she were about to encounter a casual social encounter.. She’d quickly turn the other way in a hurry. Casual interaction with her age group is a bit of a weird area for her that she hasn’t figured out, and often times it makes her nervous.

    Respectful:
    Despite her flighty nature towards people around her age, Himiko is always one to keep things respectful and professional to the best of her ability. She bows, she speaks politely, she apologizes when it’s warranted, she keeps herself neat and presentable and all that. She also puts everyone at a manageable standard of respect, treating everyone with humane dignity. She was taught, and in turn firmly believes that allies and team members all deserve a margin of respect and humanity, regardless of how they are towards her.

    Serious Demeanor (During Duties):
    When she’s really putting her mind to things, her insecurities seem to fade, going into a sort of serious mode as she speaks to others in a firm, confident voice. When she has a serious goal to be taking care of, such as completing a mission, she is quick to get organized and on her feet about the whole debacle, looking for the details and strategies in what she’s doing. She isn’t afraid of pushing the label when the end result depends on someone getting their butt kicked into gear, though she still retains an air of politeness and respect, just being capable of getting a bit harsh if something or someone is hindering the best outcome she sees.

    People Pleaser:
    Typically towards adults or superiors, Himiko is one to try to make people around her proud of her. However, the extents she’s willing to go for satiating her own worries can be a bit on the extreme side, such as her intense studying and training that, while she didn’t have to do, she wanted to push herself as hard as possible to please her grandfather. She puts pressure on herself to excel, and such pressure can be seen straining her at times.

    Likes:


    • Books
    • Rain
    • Thunder
    • Pleasing superiors
    • Learning new techniques

    Dislikes:
    • Nosy people
    • People who don’t follow directions/are disrespectful
    • Loud noises (That are human produced, not nature)
    • Sticky/slimy things
    Fears:
    • Failure
    Goal(s):


    • [*]To become a highly skilled and respected Kunoichi, and live to be a person she believes those around her want her to be.

  • Backstory:

    Himiko was in her grandparent’s care when the news of her mother’s death reached, the kunoichi having been slain in battle. While she was far too young to remember her mother, she does remember being extremely saddened over her death, though she spent most of her time with her grandparents due to the nature of her single parent household. Himiko never knew her father, and would proceed to be raised by her grandmother and grandfather, the latter of which was a man serious about progression and training his granddaughter when she came of age.

    Her mother was of a family of genjutsu experts, disrupters of the mind and body with both the mind-effecting genjutsu, and proficiency in Lightning Release. Himiko was identified as having the very same potential as her ancestors, and thus her grandfather began training her from a young age, as he wanted her to be a child to be prideful of. He began teaching her typical techniques her family taught to their youths, becoming capable of performing one or two basic Lightning Release ninjutsu, and even managing to perfect usage of a Genjutsu technique.

    However, despite the lessons of respect, restraint, and strength in one’s self that he tried to instill in her, Himiko was a nervous child, particularly of other people. Such traits slowly became less noticeable as she grew, instead being put towards making others happy and proud of her, and become an overall accomplished person.

    She became similarly serious towards important duties as her grandfather was, only really ever opening up about her true feelings to her grandmother, who tried to give her as much empathy as she could, but overall wasn’t certain of how to make her kin feel better. Though over time, she stopped opening up, especially when she began her academy training. During her time in the academy, she studied fiercely to be the best student she could possibly be, day and night practicing and training herself. Her grandfather was proud, though her grandmother worried. While she learned and valued teamwork and respect, she didn’t truly make any relationships with any of her fellow Academy students, keeping mostly to herself in study.

    She was recently graduated, having earned her headband and became a Genin, though she herself had her own worries of being placed on a squad, though her grandmother pulled her aside one night, and sat her down. She spoke of understanding the girl’s insecurities towards letting others down, but pleaded for her to try, try to make relationships with others, and how valuable such a thing would be in her life.

    | Hinazuki Harurei (DECEASED) |

    Grandfather:
    | Jiroto Harurei |


    Grandmother:
    | Hinamori Harurei |[/FONT]




  • Name of Weapon or Item: Typical Shinobi Tools

    Description:
    The typical objects one would see a shinobi capable of carrying on their person, consisting of kunai, shuriken, senbon, wire, and explosive tags.

    Appearance:
    Just the standard appearance of previously mentioned objects.

    Name of Weapon or Item: Katana

    Description:
    A generic katana she had basic training in using, however it's slightly shorter than typical katanas.

    Appearance: Just imagine a katana but just a little bit shorter for convenient carrying.


  • Skills/Abilities


    Good with Ninjutsu
    Shows an aptitude with Genjutsu, though it must be grown
    Good chakra control
    Average Taijutsu
    Average Kenjutsu

    Good Stamina
    Good Speed



    Special Traits


    Is a fast learner when it comes to dealing with chakra and the more educational ends of learning
    Shows skills in analysis, both in and out of combat



  • Name of Technique: Genjutsu: World of Nauseation
    Type of Jutsu: Genjutsu
    Rank: D
    Range: Short
    Handseals: N/A, must make direct contact with target's head
    Description: By hitting the back or temples of someone's head, Himiko can induce this Genjutsu. From the perspective of the victim, the world seems to look a lot looser, and gradually begins to spin more and more, causing the victim to slowly lose focus til they're dizzy and/or sick.
    Weakness:
    A close combat technique, Himiko has to be close enough to hit the person's head for it to work, leaving her open to being attacked if not careful.



    Name of Technique: Lightning Release: Thunder Jab
    Type of Jutsu: Ninjutsu
    Rank: D
    Range: Self/Must Make Physical Contact
    Nature Type: Lightning Release
    Handseals: Snake > Hare
    Description: Electricity pulses on the ends of the user's fingers, looking much like a small blade of lightning. This can be used to attack opponents by directly forcing electricity into their body through vigorous contact. If one were to strike nerve points with this jutsu, it could temporarily paralyze the nerves in, for example, a leg, by the electricity's disruption of the nervous system's ability to send signals for that limb to work properly.
    Weakness:
    This technique can only be effective in close quarters combat due to needing to have skin to skin contact, thus putting the user at risk of being attacked due to needing to be so close to their opponent.



    Name of Technique: Lightning Release: Sonar Field
    Type of Jutsu: Ninjutsu
    Rank: D
    Range: Mid-Long
    Nature Type: Lightning Release
    Handseals: Snake > Dragon > Bird > Strike ground
    Description: Himiko bends her chakra into electrical currents to rush out along an area, pulsations of electricity meant to search for living beings by sensing their electric fields. This is mainly used for scouting out the surrounding area for enemies or other creatures. These pulses have a one second delay in the images they send to Himiko, thus making anything sensed by them seem to move choppily to her. Her eyes must be closed, and the images go across her vision, looking like black and white, with those who bear stronger electric currents appearing brighter, making it easier to differentiate them from the standard environment.
    Weakness:
    Himiko must remain grounded with her eyes closed in order for this technique to work, putting her at risk if there's a sudden attack.
