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.

    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.

Water Country Military (Before Republic)

    Mid 30’s

    • Three prominent scars on his face, from an old mission back in his shinobi days. Received from a wild bear.
    • Two scars going across his back. Sword strikes from his time at the war.



  • Personality:
    Jirou can be described in a simple phrase: Work to get the job done.

    Whenever he is working, doesn’t matter at what, Jirou is focused, serious, and always puts his work above all else. If it is farm work, then he won’t stop until the sun goes down. If it is military work, then he won’t rest until every soldier is taken care of. And if it solving problems, then he won’t stop until the problem is long gone. Even when he is not working, his mind will be thinking of work related topics.

    Even with his family, Jirou will be serious and quite strict. He trains all his children, and works hard to ensure he sees the progress they make. He doesn’t consider himself to be a man with friends, as they simply take up time. He has co-workers, peers, accomplices, and normally, he would treat them as such.

    • Repeating the mistakes of the Mizukages.
    Goal(s):
    • Taking over the Republic. (Achieved)
    • Ensuring his family will continue ruling the country.
    • Standing headstrong against the old rival in new skin, the Akinian Empire.
    • Bringing his country to new heights.

  • Backstory:

    Born to a couple of farmers that chose to help the still relatively young village grow, Jirou saw his childhood pass with modesty accompanying him. His family barely managed to scrap food at times, but other times, they could even afford to hire some help around the farm. Like many kids, he felt he should have more, and he was not afraid to show it. This lifestyle, however, taught him that sometimes, having some humility would stop you from advancing in life.

    When he first started showing signs of being capable of using chakra, Jirou wondered if something had cursed him. Neither of his parents ever showed such capabilities, but both of them encouraged him to go and become a shinobi, for he will be able to give himself a better life than staying there with them. Deciding to believe them, they would get him an entry exam into the academy, which he passed with flying colours. His time at the academy passed by quickly, with young Jirou, at the age of ten, showing capable of properly learning everything they taught him. A prodigy in the making, they called him.

    He passed his final exam, and went on to be on a team. He served on the team for approximately five years, learning how to utilize the wind chakra he naturally possessed, alongside how to wield a sword and a Kusarigama. While it wasn’t the most obvious of weapon choices, Jirou always felt the most comfortable wielding the Kusarigama, with the longer range it allowed him to have. Not long after being with the team for five years, they were stationed in a military outpost north of Kirigakure. During this time, Jirou got a proper chance to witness the lives of the regular soldiers, and felt like he desired to move to be among them rather than be in a more specialized force like the Shinobi corps. When they were ordered to move to their next assignment, Jirou put in a request to be moved to the regular forces of the military.

    After the request was approved, Jirou held the lowest rank of the military. Being at the age of 15, many of his peers thought little of him at first, and he had to work many dirty and rough jobs to start gaining some respect. His favour towards the Kusarigama also made things a bit rougher for him, and Jirou had to switch to using a sword in order to better fit in with the soldiers that surrounded him and the training regimes they underwent, as no one intended to give him a special training. He would still train using the Kusarigama during the nights, as much as he could, but eventually had to stop due to it affecting his daily routine.

    When he was 23, the Great War broke out. Jirou was one of many soldiers that were sent to the Fire Country front, seeing several victories occur as they slowly pushed into the country. When the tide began turning, Jirou watched as his brothers in arms would begin being slaughtered at the hands of the Fire Country forces. Eventually, even though he had orders to stand his ground, Jirou started shouting as loud as he could to retreat, so that they could stand and fight another day. Several men followed him, but many still died. Although he received punishment for disobeying direct orders, he was also commended for bringing back more men with him and not running away on his own. He then received a promotion and was sent back to the capital, as the new orders were to return to Kirigakure. Back at his home, he watched as the Fire country’s forces came close, and soon enough, the final battle began. While he was one of the men that stood their ground in the fight, when the commanding officers began to fight, Jirou watched in silence, until Shouji fell down. Ordering the men to retreat as soon as he saw that, Jirou felt bitter and furious that their leader would lose in such a shameful way.

    A treaty would take place, and a new leader rose. One that brought nothing but misery to the Water Country. Jirou couldn’t help but feel as though the war only turned things for the worse for the country. A selfish leader, that sought out nothing but to ensure that his place in the lead remained. And everyone suffered for it. He watched as people try to rise against him, but all fell short from being able to accomplish anything, until the Third Mizukage’s assassination. The Fourth Mizukage was no better, and even tried to put himself more tightly in the spot. The worst thing he saw during the Fourth’s reign was what occurred in the former Suzu clan.

    Although Jirou had no particular liking to the clan, the downfall of the clan saw what Jirou considered to be worse than the war. The chaos that erupted in the streets had the military mobilized in an attempt to try and stop the fighting and destruction that was going on within the village, with little to no effect. More lives were lost than what Jirou thought were worth. For managing to save some civilian lives, Jirou received yet another promotion. Although he remained quiet, he now had a personal vendetta against the Mizukage, having lost his own parents to the Suzu infighting, and seeing how little the current ruler actually did to try and stop it. Not long after, he would find a new family in a woman that hailed from the Mizuno clan, one that was a lesser noble. With her, he would have three children, an older girl and twins.

    His feelings towards the Fourth Mizukage did not perish, but they would not get a chance to become anything, as the last of the Suzu clan would come and kill the Fourth Mizukage, becoming the fifth in his place. Rika’s leadership saw a more positive change in the village, one that actually made Jirou feel as though he could breathe a bit more calmly. For a while, he was one of the many that had been deceived that she was throwing away all the negatives that had been done in the past, only to eventually start to notice what was really going on. Once more, however, no actions would be taken, as the Suzu’s death would find her, and the Republic would come to rise.

    Although it showed some promise as being ‘representatives of the people, for the people, by the people’, Jirou had enough. He did not believe that a thing as a proper rulership could even exist. The stagnation the country had entered, along with some of the very skeptical actions of the council, made him decide that enough was enough. He wouldn’t wait for anyone else to step up and make a change. He would be the one to make the change.

  • Wind Release: Gale Palm
    Wind Release: Vacuum Sphere

    Name of Technique:
    Wind Release: Bullet
    Type of Jutsu:
    Ninjutsu
    Rank:
    C
    Range:
    Mid-Far
    Nature Type:
    Wind
    Handseals:
    Ram > Boar > Rat
    Description:
    The user exhales a single bullet of compressed wind from his mouth, shooting it straight ahead. Holding the Rat seal allows the user to compress the bullet further before shooting it, in order to increase its speed and deadliness.
    Weakness:
    Only one bullet can be shot each time. It cannot be manipulated once shot, and the more one increases the bullet’s speed, the more chakra it costs. It cannot penetrate earth, or any solid objects that are thicker than 5 centimeters. Penetrating objects decreases its speed.

    ====================

    Name of Technique:
    Wind Release: Push
    Type of Jutsu:
    Ninjutsu
    Rank:
    B-C
    Range:
    Close
    Nature Type:
    Wind
    Handseals:
    None / Ram
    Description:
    Gathering the chakra within his mouth, Jirou sends out a strong gust of wind out of it, capable of knocking others off their feet and push them backwards if they are not prepared. If utilized with the Ram seal, then the intensity and power of the technique is increased threefold.
    Weakness:
    If he loses control of the technique, it can backfire and have the remaining force send him backwards too. He is also incapable of defending himself while using this technique, as moving while using brings a potential risk for him to lose control.

    ====================

    Name of Technique:
    Wind Release: Slice
    Type of Jutsu:
    Ninjutsu
    Rank:
    A
    Range:
    Short-Mid
    Nature Type:
    Wind
    Handseals:
    None
    Description:
    Focusing on his weapon, Jirou covers it with Wind-chakra. He then begins striking the air with the weapon, while sending out a gust of sharp and fast wind, one that is capable of even leaving an impact on the earth.
    Weakness:
    The accuracy and number of strikes from this technique depends on which weapon he uses. Sword gives him better accuracy, but less gusts he can throw at an enemy, while using it with the Kusarigama gives him more strikes, but lessened accuracy.
    The technique cannot penetrate objects that are at least 15 centimeters thick, and the earth only up to 5 centimeters.
    Using this technique can cause harm to the weapons if used carelessly.

    ====================
    Name of Technique:
    Wind Release: Wind-Sharp Blade
    Type of Jutsu:
    Ninjutsu
    Rank:
    A
    Range:
    Self
    Nature Type:
    Wind
    Handseals:
    Ram > Dog > Horse > Tiger > Dragon
    Description:
    After forming the seals, Jirou exhales wind into his hands, in the form of a bladed weapon. He is then capable of utilizing it as a sword, one that is as sharp as his strikes can be from the Wind Release: Slice technique.
    Weakness:
    While the technique has no time limit, it does consistently consume chakra from Jirou, and can quickly become chakra-expensive. Letting go of the blade will cause the blade to vanish.
    While Jirou is capable of wielding the blade with 1 hand, it will start to lose some of its stability by doing so, and will dissipate after 30 seconds.

Basic Info

Name: Bashira (Shira) Tanaka
Nickname:
Gender: Female
Age: 13
DOB: October 22, 464
Age Appearance: 10
Sexuality: Heterosexual

Grandparents: Dai Tanaka (grandmother)
Parents: Eshima and Akira Tanaka (Deceased)
Siblings: None

Nation: The Republic of the Water Country
Birthplace: Kirigakure
Clan: No Clan
Rank: Genin (Fresh out of academy)
Chakra Nature: Water

Appearance: D910F2A5-CAF7-4FEE-BEC9-7B75B48506D1.jpeg
Shira’s eyes are a distant and kind pale blue color that seem to suggest she is pondering some great question but really she misses her parents. Her white hair is almost always tied back in a bun, braid or ponytail so it’s not in her way. Her hair falls straight to the middle of her back.

Detailed Information

Personality: Shira is a kind and intelligent girl with a good but broken heart from the loss of her parents. Since her parents died she has become reserved and rarely leaves the small house she shares with her grandmother. Shira has a hidden temper under her gentle nature when she is pushed or if someone calls her a hated childhood nickname “Bashy”. When she is ticked off she likes to throw things and her quietness falls away as her language becomes very vulgar. Shira isn’t the most outgoing person but will be the first to help a teammate in need and the last to leave a fallen teammate. Once she is comfortable with someone she opens up to reveal a sarcastic sense of humor with bad jokes. She is very loyal and some would say she is too loyal.

History: Bashira Tanaka was born in a small house in Kirigakure towards the beginning of the Age of Blood. Her grandmother Dai Tanaka criticized her parents for having a child at such a time and their defense that every time was a bad time to have a kid. Bashira turned one the year Kang was assassinated and the Fourth Mizukage came into power. Her childhood mostly revolved around the inside of their small house because her grandmother was a paranoid woman. She grew up learning about different medical herbs and how to protect herself as her mother often took in injured civilians to patch up. Unfortunately it was her mother’s kindness that got both her parents killed when Bashira was 10 years old. Eshima Tanaka brought home a group of injured civilians and patched them up without knowing who she was healing. Some days later a group of thugs broke into their house and demanded to know who healed the men. Eshima told them it was her who had healed them and that was when it was revealed the people were wanted men. Dai and Bashira Tanaka hid in a closet as her parents confronted the thugs, terrified to make a sound. The thugs demanded she pay for interfering and Eshima was killed minutes later followed by her husband Akira who flew at the thugs in a rage after she was killed. Bashira mostly stayed in the house at night after her parents were murdered but in the day she gathered herbs to sell for her grandmothers shop. She was always back by dark and took care to make herself average on the streets. Her young appearance made people look the other way which helped keep her out of trouble. Her grandmother insisted she join the Academy and become a kunoichi so she would better learn to defend herself. Bashira would practice her techniques after school under the watchful eye of her grandmother at night.

Approved. I noticed that the format is different. However, I read in the discord that you're using an ipad. I will overlook that. Not to mention, we'll later talk on what kind of poison she uses - as we tend to try to avoid instantly killing poison and the likes of that.

Masami’s formal outfit



In order to adjust to the conditions on the Easter Continent, Masami made significant changes to her outfit. During downtime, her long hair is in a long ponytail, with a headband above her forehead. She wears a woolen, long sleeved shirt together with gloves. On top of that, she wears a plain brown vest. She completes her outfit with black pants, together with leather boots.

During combat, Masami braids her hair. She wears a tank undershirt with a long sleeved shirt on top of it. She switches up her gloves to fingerless ones. She wears slightly loose combat pants that are tucked into her combat boots that end just under her knees. She covers the top of the boots with bandages that end just under her knees. Completing her outfit is the standard Akino flak jacket with several utility slots on it for her gear. Masami also braids her, by now almost waist long hair for all missions.


Personality:
Masami can be described as a proud, cheerful and optimistic person. She is greatly devoted to her clan, and in equal measure to her friends and comrades in arms. During her free time, she is very friendly, talkative and approachable by everyone who decides to seek her out. She spends most of her free time training, to better herself for the sake of the Empire she serves and the clan she belongs to. She does not hesitate to reach out with a helping hand to all members of her clan.

In combat, Masami is a fierce and determined combatant, always giving it her all. She tries to keep a certain level of detachment from the combat in order to remain calm and level-headed. This allows her to make split-second decisions. Despite all of this, there are times when Masami is overwhelmed by her emotions and unable to keep them in check, thus hampering her focus. Above all of her traits stands out the will to go to any length in order to protect those precious to her. In combat, she does her best to get the enemy to make the first move so she can gauge their ability and react to it accordingly.

She places great emphasis on truth and honesty above all values, and finds persons valuing them as admirable. She does her best to be a shining beacon of optimism and hope to those around her. Despite her loyalty as a clan, she likes to think about herself as a free spirit, always chasing after her dreams with unwavering determination and endless optimism.


History:
Masami was born in the year The Great War took place. As the flames of war broke out, she spent her early years only with her Mother, who spent all of her time with the young girl. For the next three and a half years, Masami saw her father only a handful of times during the times he returned from the frontlines. The family spent all of this time together, cherishing the rare moment of unity. As the war concluded, the young Masami eagerly awaited her Father’s return, until it happened - coincidently, on a wonderful Autumn morning.

For the next two years, the young girl spent every possible moment with her father, trying to catch up on lost time, and was always grumpy when her parents had to attend clan duties instead of spending time with her. But her parents found a way to find a solution. One of them would go with Masami to the clan’s dojo, where she observed the older members of the clan practicing the clan’s signature combat style - The Gentle Fist. The little Hyuuga would watch the training sessions with her eyes wide, even trying to imitate some of the moves, often with comical results.

Masami’s parents took notice of this and while agreeing that she was too young to begin training in the Gentle Fist, they started her training rather early. They did this with a rather playful twist - Masami had a liking for nature from her early years, and her parents had her observe all she could using her eyes and have her tell about her discoveries. Immensely pleased, Masami could spend hours going on about all the details she saw, and her parents were pleased with the results.

Her education started two years later, with her gaining a decent amount of experience with her Byakugan for her age. She was receiving basic education from the best mentors in the clan, and her parents started to train her personally. Her father took it upon himself to teach the Gentle Fist to Masami, while her mother did her best to impart her impressive chakra control skills. Masami took up the training with never ending enthusiasm, often pushing herself to absolute exhaustion. She loved falling asleep in the clan dojo and waking up in her bed.

Seeing that Masami was doing fine on her own, her parents decided not to enroll her into the Ninja Academy right away. Seeing that she was making steady progress, they decided to hold her enrollment for another year and it paid off. When she joined the Academy, she was among the best in her class, quickly mastering lessons and whenever she was done with them, she helped others as much as she could. This behavior made her rather popular in her class, and the instructors took liking to her as well.

Her Academy years went by without any single misstep, and it took her five years to graduate while retaining her position among the best in her year. Masami was immediately assigned to a team of her peers. She was doing rather well at first, as everyone expected from her, but eventually her mission performance decreased gradually. Upon consulting the situation with her parents, they requested some time off missions to figure out what was going wrong. It took some time, but the reason was figured out - she was worried that as she becomes a fully fledged Shinobi of her village, she will have to abandon all that has made her love so enjoyable - her family, her friends, even herself.

Seeing the true nature of the issue, her parents swiftly acted and did their best to help their daughter realize her fears would never come to be, and after spending lots of time with Masami, she wanted to be assigned to missions again. To her parents relief, their efforts once again paid off, as her performance was steadily rising again. It was also during this time that her nature affinity, Water, was discovered and worked with.

During this period of time, Masami learned that she will have a young sibling, and she was delighted with the fact that she’ll be able to be a “Big, strong older sister”. Several months later, she became that to her small sister Yua. She swore to herself that she will always be there for and protect her little sister. But it soon turned out that it will not be this easy for her, to always be there for her little sister.

As she gathered more and more experience, she was assigned to another team, this time under the leadership of Hiroshi Hon, who helped to truly unlock Masami’s true potential. It was under his leadership that Masami attained the rank of a Chuunin, survived the Shoji Occupation and further developed her skills as a sworn member of The Guardians. She accepted this new position in a humble way, and she swore to herself that she will do her best to show everyone she was worth the rank.

During these turbulent and difficult times, Masami developed a somewhat closer relationship with Shikaroku Nara that would soon take an interesting twist. It was announced to her that they were betrothed to each other, and upon initial shock, Masami realized the true way she felt about Shikaroku. Heading into yet another difficult triar for her, soon after that she was deployed with the rest of The Guardians to the Eastern Continent.

(What are the skills that make your character good at some points or bad. Chakra control, reflexes and such are needed to be placed here.)



Name of Weapon or Item:
Generic Shinobi Tools
Description:
Generic tools worn by all shinobi of The Empire of Akino. She has one set of them ( 6 kunai, 20 shuriken, 2 explosive tags ) stored in the pockets on her flak jacket.
Appearance:
Shuriken and kunai



Name of Weapon or Item:
Akino Earphone Communicator
Description:
The Empire of Akino has their own communicators that have three channels. They were used before, during the time of the Fire Union, by various organisations to amplify their efficiency in field work and communications. In the current Empire, the largest group of users of the communicators is the Regular Shinobi Corps. The communicators come with three channels:

Channel A
This channel is for a team alone. This channel is most used by members (or entire) teams during field operations. Each set of communicators is around four, seeing that the majority of teams are formed by four members.

Channel B
Channel B is restricted for either emergency or use of extern of the team the user is in. It allows communication with other communicator users that can switch to B. This is most often used with code language to prevent potential eavesdroppers from picking up what the relayed messages are about. It is also the channel that is used to send out an emergency message, for others that have their device on Channel B.

Channel C
This channel is only available for Jounins and leaders of teams. Various codes are being used to identify and signal the user of each device and out of set of communicators, only one is capable of switching to Channel C. It is considered to be safe as long as the code protocol isn't breached, which is rare as it would mean that either a team leader has gone rogue or its device has been stolen. Both cases where others would be alarmed when an outdated or wrong use of the code is being given before relaying messages and information.

Appearance:
Standard appearance. Really.

Kekkei Genkai

Name of Kekkei Genkai:
Byakugan
Clan :
Hyuuga Clan
Description:
The Byakugan, literally meaning " All Seeing White Eye " is one of the three great Eye techniques. It is an almost featureless, white eye that is inherited by every member of the Hyuuga Clan. Upon activation, the pupils become more distinct from the rest of the eye and veins around the eye become clearly visible. The eye grants the user several abilities. Upon activation, the user of the Byakugan gains a near 360° field of vision except for one blind spot above the back of the neck. Together with this, the user gains an increase in sight - 50 meters at first activation, it has to be noted that this distance can be increased by training - giving the eye its second ability, telescopic sight. Besides that, the Byakugan can see through most barriers and obstacles that hinder the view of a normal eye - though even the Byakugan has its limits at some techniques. The third and most significant trait of the Byakugan is its ability to see chakra, chakra circulation and The Chakra Pathway System in clean detail - the later necessary for the Hyuuga Clans trademark Gentle Fist fighting style.

Custom Jutsu

Name of Technique:
Protection of The Gentle Fist
Type of Jutsu:
Defensive
Rank:
C
Range:
None
Nature Type:
None
Handseals:
None - Chakra Flow based technique
Description:
Masami focuses her chakra towards the Tenketsu on the part of the body she wants to protect from incoming attacks, and by releasing a steady stream of chakra, she forms a protective shield being able to repel attacks. What can and can’t be repelled depends on both her skill with the technique and the skill of the attacker.

Weakness:
The strength of the shield is dependent on the amount of chakra moulded into the technique, as well as the strength and skill of the attacker she defends from. Also Masami’s mental focus plays an important role in the successful performing of the technique. Also, no matter how well the technique is performed, a sufficiently strong technique or attack can break the shield.

====================
Name of Technique:
Water Release : Water Senbon
Type of Jutsu:
Ninjutsu / Offensive
Rank:
C
Range:
All Ranges
Nature Type:
Water Release
Handseals:
Seal of Confrontation
Description:
Masami can perform the Water Senbon in two different ways, but the technique always shares the same basis. She uses either pre-existing water or creates water vortexes from her own chakra, but the latter option is still a bit difficult for her to perform. She then proceeds to launch senbon made from water at her target at high velocity, causing piercing damage of various degrees on hit.

Weakness:
As she is yet to gain mastery over the technique, it is rather chakra consuming for her to perform. Her focus needs to be spot on when using the version without the handseal, as she must focus both on her Gentle Fist moves. Using the version with the handseal means she has one of her hands figuratively tied behind her back.

Masami’s formal outfit



In order to adjust to the conditions on the Easter Continent, Masami made significant changes to her outfit. During downtime, her long hair is in a long ponytail, with a headband above her forehead. She wears a woolen, long sleeved shirt together with gloves. On top of that, she wears a plain brown vest. She completes her outfit with black pants, together with leather boots.

During combat, Masami braids her hair. She wears a tank undershirt with a long sleeved shirt on top of it. She switches up her gloves to fingerless ones. She wears slightly loose combat pants that are tucked into her combat boots that end just under her knees. She covers the top of the boots with bandages that end just under her knees. Completing her outfit is the standard Akino flak jacket with several utility slots on it for her gear. Masami also braids her, by now almost waist long hair for all missions.


Personality:
Masami can be described as a proud, cheerful and optimistic person. She is greatly devoted to her clan, and in equal measure to her friends and comrades in arms. During her free time, she is very friendly, talkative and approachable by everyone who decides to seek her out. She spends most of her free time training, to better herself for the sake of the Empire she serves and the clan she belongs to. She does not hesitate to reach out with a helping hand to all members of her clan.

In combat, Masami is a fierce and determined combatant, always giving it her all. She tries to keep a certain level of detachment from the combat in order to remain calm and level-headed. This allows her to make split-second decisions. Despite all of this, there are times when Masami is overwhelmed by her emotions and unable to keep them in check, thus hampering her focus. Above all of her traits stands out the will to go to any length in order to protect those precious to her. In combat, she does her best to get the enemy to make the first move so she can gauge their ability and react to it accordingly.

She places great emphasis on truth and honesty above all values, and finds persons valuing them as admirable. She does her best to be a shining beacon of optimism and hope to those around her. Despite her loyalty as a clan, she likes to think about herself as a free spirit, always chasing after her dreams with unwavering determination and endless optimism.


History:
Masami was born in the year The Great War took place. As the flames of war broke out, she spent her early years only with her Mother, who spent all of her time with the young girl. For the next three and a half years, Masami saw her father only a handful of times during the times he returned from the frontlines. The family spent all of this time together, cherishing the rare moment of unity. As the war concluded, the young Masami eagerly awaited her Father’s return, until it happened - coincidently, on a wonderful Autumn morning.

For the next two years, the young girl spent every possible moment with her father, trying to catch up on lost time, and was always grumpy when her parents had to attend clan duties instead of spending time with her. But her parents found a way to find a solution. One of them would go with Masami to the clan’s dojo, where she observed the older members of the clan practicing the clan’s signature combat style - The Gentle Fist. The little Hyuuga would watch the training sessions with her eyes wide, even trying to imitate some of the moves, often with comical results.

Masami’s parents took notice of this and while agreeing that she was too young to begin training in the Gentle Fist, they started her training rather early. They did this with a rather playful twist - Masami had a liking for nature from her early years, and her parents had her observe all she could using her eyes and have her tell about her discoveries. Immensely pleased, Masami could spend hours going on about all the details she saw, and her parents were pleased with the results.

Her education started two years later, with her gaining a decent amount of experience with her Byakugan for her age. She was receiving basic education from the best mentors in the clan, and her parents started to train her personally. Her father took it upon himself to teach the Gentle Fist to Masami, while her mother did her best to impart her impressive chakra control skills. Masami took up the training with never ending enthusiasm, often pushing herself to absolute exhaustion. She loved falling asleep in the clan dojo and waking up in her bed.

Seeing that Masami was doing fine on her own, her parents decided not to enroll her into the Ninja Academy right away. Seeing that she was making steady progress, they decided to hold her enrollment for another year and it paid off. When she joined the Academy, she was among the best in her class, quickly mastering lessons and whenever she was done with them, she helped others as much as she could. This behavior made her rather popular in her class, and the instructors took liking to her as well.

Her Academy years went by without any single misstep, and it took her five years to graduate while retaining her position among the best in her year. Masami was immediately assigned to a team of her peers. She was doing rather well at first, as everyone expected from her, but eventually her mission performance decreased gradually. Upon consulting the situation with her parents, they requested some time off missions to figure out what was going wrong. It took some time, but the reason was figured out - she was worried that as she becomes a fully fledged Shinobi of her village, she will have to abandon all that has made her love so enjoyable - her family, her friends, even herself.

Seeing the true nature of the issue, her parents swiftly acted and did their best to help their daughter realize her fears would never come to be, and after spending lots of time with Masami, she wanted to be assigned to missions again. To her parents relief, their efforts once again paid off, as her performance was steadily rising again. It was also during this time that her nature affinity, Water, was discovered and worked with.

During this period of time, Masami learned that she will have a young sibling, and she was delighted with the fact that she’ll be able to be a “Big, strong older sister”. Several months later, she became that to her small sister Yua. She swore to herself that she will always be there for and protect her little sister. But it soon turned out that it will not be this easy for her, to always be there for her little sister.

As she gathered more and more experience, she was assigned to another team, this time under the leadership of Hiroshi Hon, who helped to truly unlock Masami’s true potential. It was under his leadership that Masami attained the rank of a Chuunin, survived the Shoji Occupation and further developed her skills as a sworn member of The Guardians. She accepted this new position in a humble way, and she swore to herself that she will do her best to show everyone she was worth the rank.

During these turbulent and difficult times, Masami developed a somewhat closer relationship with Shikaroku Nara that would soon take an interesting twist. It was announced to her that they were betrothed to each other, and upon initial shock, Masami realized the true way she felt about Shikaroku. Heading into yet another difficult triar for her, soon after that she was deployed with the rest of The Guardians to the Eastern Continent.

Name of Weapon or Item:
Akino Earphone Communicator
Description:
The Empire of Akino has their own communicators that have three channels. They were used before, during the time of the Fire Union, by various organisations to amplify their efficiency in field work and communications. In the current Empire, the largest group of users of the communicators is the Regular Shinobi Corps. The communicators come with three channels:

Channel A
This channel is for a team alone. This channel is most used by members (or entire) teams during field operations. Each set of communicators is around four, seeing that the majority of teams are formed by four members.

Channel B
Channel B is restricted for either emergency or use of extern of the team the user is in. It allows communication with other communicator users that can switch to B. This is most often used with code language to prevent potential eavesdroppers from picking up what the relayed messages are about. It is also the channel that is used to send out an emergency message, for others that have their device on Channel B.

Channel C
This channel is only available for Jounins and leaders of teams. Various codes are being used to identify and signal the user of each device and out of set of communicators, only one is capable of switching to Channel C. It is considered to be safe as long as the code protocol isn't breached, which is rare as it would mean that either a team leader has gone rogue or its device has been stolen. Both cases where others would be alarmed when an outdated or wrong use of the code is being given before relaying messages and information.

Kekkei Genkai

Name of Kekkei Genkai:
Byakugan
Clan :
Hyuuga Clan
Description:
The Byakugan, literally meaning " All Seeing White Eye " is one of the three great Eye techniques. It is an almost featureless, white eye that is inherited by every member of the Hyuuga Clan. Upon activation, the pupils become more distinct from the rest of the eye and veins around the eye become clearly visible. The eye grants the user several abilities. Upon activation, the user of the Byakugan gains a near 360° field of vision except for one blind spot above the back of the neck. Together with this, the user gains an increase in sight - 50 meters at first activation, it has to be noted that this distance can be increased by training - giving the eye its second ability, telescopic sight. Besides that, the Byakugan can see through most barriers and obstacles that hinder the view of a normal eye - though even the Byakugan has its limits at some techniques. The third and most significant trait of the Byakugan is its ability to see chakra, chakra circulation and The Chakra Pathway System in clean detail - the later necessary for the Hyuuga Clans trademark Gentle Fist fighting style.

Name of Technique:
Protection of The Gentle Fist
Type of Jutsu:
Defensive
Rank:
C
Range:
None
Nature Type:
None
Handseals:
None - Chakra Flow based technique
Description:
Masami focuses her chakra towards the Tenketsu on the part of the body she wants to protect from incoming attacks, and by releasing a steady stream of chakra, she forms a protective shield being able to repel attacks. What can and can’t be repelled depends on both her skill with the technique and the skill of the attacker.

Weakness:
The strength of the shield is dependent on the amount of chakra moulded into the technique, as well as the strength and skill of the attacker she defends from. Also Masami’s mental focus plays an important role in the successful performing of the technique. Also, no matter how well the technique is performed, a sufficiently strong technique or attack can break the shield.

====================
Name of Technique:
Water Release : Water Senbon
Type of Jutsu:
Ninjutsu / Offensive
Rank:
C
Range:
All Ranges
Nature Type:
Water Release
Handseals:
Seal of Confrontation
Description:
Masami can perform the Water Senbon in two different ways, but the technique always shares the same basis. She uses either pre-existing water or creates water vortexes from her own chakra, but the latter option is still a bit difficult for her to perform. She then proceeds to launch senbon made from water at her target at high velocity, causing piercing damage of various degrees on hit.

Weakness:
As she is yet to gain mastery over the technique, it is rather chakra consuming for her to perform. Her focus needs to be spot on when using the version without the handseal, as she must focus both on her Gentle Fist moves. Using the version with the handseal means she has one of her hands figuratively tied behind her back.

Name:
Áki Hon
Nickname:
Aki, by friends and family.
Rank:
Genin
Organization:
The Empire of Akino

”I may still be a young pup, but one that will not go down without a fight!”





  • Bloodline:
    The Hon Clan
    House of Rawon
    Chakra Nature:
    Lightning Release ( Affinity )
    Gender:
    Male
    Age and date of birth:
    27th of August during the year 466, thus 10 years old.
    Age Appearance:
    Áki's appearance corresponds with his age
    Sexuality:
    Àki is too young to give any thought to this question, but presumed to be heterosexual.




  • Length and build:
    Àki stands at 147 cms of height with a slim, slightly muscular build.
    Weight:
    Àki weighs 48 kgs.

    Favourite weather and season:
    Windy, cloudy weather with weak rainfall. Àki's preferred season is Autumn.

    Scars and tattoos:
    Currently, Áki has:
    • Several scars ( about 2cm long each ) on his right hand after a confrontation with his Father.



  • Personality:
    If one has to describe Àki with a few words, they would be friendly, honest and hard-working. While this is an accurate description, it is not the entire truth. The above-mentioned words describe the young Hon with his friends. When alone, he is constantly doubting himself and it takes him great effort to get out of the clutches of his self-doubt. The most usual way to achieve this is either by training or by approaching someone from his friends or family, as he wants to hide this side of him from everyone. He also tends to keep his true feelings and opinions a secret to himself, only opening up to persons he really trusts.

    During lectures or training sessions, Àki is a determined and focused person who believes the only way to truly advance forward is to constantly push one's boundaries to their absolute limits, no matter the cost. He commits himself to this way of thinking wholly , no matter the hardships he has to endure. Another important trait is his dedication to stick to his wishes and promises, but also the goals he set for himself.

    Being greatly affected by the hardships his father caused him, and still does, Àki made a vow to himself never to abandon his friends or family. He always thinks about the persons close to him and wants to help them in any way his young age allows him. He is not a person to hold grudges, but that does not mean he's forgetting.

    Another defining aspect of Áki's personality is his loyalty. He is fiercely loyal to his House and Jarlynja, and takes any sort of sleight towards them personally, doing his best to prove the person wrong - which sometimes led to troubles in his Academy years. He considered being reprimanded, and the occasional bruises a fair price for defending his clan.

    Likes:
    • Autumn weather
    • Training
    • Learning more about his clan
    • Spending time with his friends / family
    • Pork BBQ

    Dislikes:
    • People arguing in his presence
    • People underestimating him
    • Long periods of time without missions / training

    Fears:
    • Losing the ones he cares about
    • His father coming back to his life
    • Disappointing others
    • Bringing dishonor to his clan or to the Empire
    Goal(s):
    • Prove his worth to everyone in The Hon Clan
    • Protect his Mother
    • Overcome his fear towards his father

  • Backstory:


    Áki was born during a summer day to Sigrid and Lokar, into a relationship that was far from ideal. Sigrid Hom, hailing from the village of Bjarnafoss,was infatuated with the man who never cared about anything else than to have something to drink. Despite this, Àki's first years were spent in a loving and caring family, as if having a child seemed to change Lokar. While some arguments took place, they were scarce and rather quickly resolved. Sigrid was hopeful that Àki helped to bring out the best from Lokar and was genuinely happy.

    From the moment Àki could walk and talk, he could not stay at one place for too long. From his early, wobbly steps taken at one year to the time he was five years old, Sigrid was doing her best to keep the boy out of harm's way, but was often too late. This resulted in several bruises and cuts, but the young Hon seemed to just shrug them off. He spent most of his time wandering around the village they lived in. Some signs of future trouble between Sigrid and Lokar were beginning to show, things that would soon bear its rotten fruits.

    As he was five years old, the arguments between his parents were more and more common, but since he was always running around the village, he wasn't there to see it. He climbed every tree he could get to, and from time to time, he climbed buildings too. This was not always appreciated by the villagers, but he always made sure to apologize, either verbally or by doing a small favour. Without him realizing, Àki was becoming somewhat liked by most of the villagers too.

    A year has passed, and the relationship between his parents was almost in ruin. Arguments were on a daily basis now, and in order to shut them out, Àki was spending even more time out with his friends. Each time he finally convinced himself to go home, Lokar, often drunk, started to take out his frustrations on the young boy. At first only verbally, with physical attacks being a rare occasion. Àki desperately wanted to do something for his mother, so in his time spent away from home, he started to train himself. Either on his own, or with the help of his fellow villagers. He did his best to keep the situation at his home a secret, despite the entire village knowing Lokar for what he really was.

    Two more years went on like this, something that sapped all of Sigrid's energy away. Physical attacks were also almost commonplace from Lokar now, but Àki was too afraid to make a stand. One day, he came home to a particularly violent argument between Sigrid and Lokar. The man, long since not caring about his family but only about his drink, started to take out his anger on Sigrid, with fists and punches flying around. Finding the courage to stand up, the boy got between his parents, wanting to defend her.

    Even more enraged by this, Lokar turned his focus to him and beat up the boy as well. He ended the one sided confrontation by throwing Àki through a window. Refusing to give up, he was about to stand up when Lokar, blind in his rage, stomped on Àki's right hand several times. This fractured several of his bones in his right hand,as well as caused several shards of glass to cut deeply into his hand. Lokar did not realise this and continued his onslaught, seemingly lost in his drunken rage. When the situation went from dire to life threatening, Àki was saved by an unlikely intervention.

    Behind Lokar's back, most of the villagers were gathered to defend Àki and Sigrid, their own kin as they called them. Stunned and , clearly overwhelmed, and banished from the village by the Thegn, Lokar left for good. The Thegn made sure that Àki's wounds were treated properly and promised them that, true to his words, they will never have to worry about being bothered by Lokar again. Their neighbours helped them to the best of their possibilities, and for a moment, it would appear that life would eventually return to normal.

    It took a couple of weeks before Àki recovered from his physical injuries, but it will probably take years for the mental damage to subside. Sigrid, not wanting to stay in the place where so many horrible things took place for their family, confronted the young boy about whether he wanted to stay in their current place. They both agreed on leaving. While their fellow towns folk were saddened by their departure, they understood and so they bid the duo a farewell. They decided to move to Konoha, and this decision paid off.

    The monumental trip from their village to Konoha, where Sigrid wanted to spend some time with her relatives took them about two months, as they wanted to stay in Hon controlled territory. Mother and son bonded strongly during this time, and made many memories they will fondly remember for years to come. Àki trained whenever the journey allowed it under Sigrid's supervision, and their free time was spent with Sigrid retelling tales from her life. Life on the roads with his mum soon became one of Àki's most found memories and before they realized, they were at the gates of Konoha.

    The new surroundings helped Áki to get over the events that took place much better. His injuries healed after some time and Sigrid enrolled him into the Academy, a challenge Áki embraced with a vigor that surprised both her and his teachers. He tackled each lesson with absolute focus and utmost determination, often staying up late into nights to end his practice sessions with satisfying results. Even in his free time, Áki rarely rested - he either trained individually or helped his classmates with training. His curiosity about exploring his surroundings returned as well, and within a year since his injury, he was back to climbing either trees or buildings. Despite this, he still thought about Lokar, most often with thoughts filled with fear and hatred. Despite giving all his strength into his training in hopes of keeping himself busy, he could not take away his mind from the idea of finding the man that made him go through hell and stand up to him, once and for all.

    A couple of months after he started on the Academy, his nature affinity manifested as that of Lightning Release. He then started to develop his nature affinity along with his other skills, showing great promise into the future. It was also around this time that mother and son talked about what to do next, and they decided together to stay in Konoha for good. Another one and a half years have passed and Áki graduated from the Academy among the best in his class, and was immediately assigned to a team. A few weeks after he graduated, he managed to successfully perform one of the rites of age for The Hon Clan, The Lightning Beast Running technique. He saw it as a result of his hard work and made a promise to himself to keep up in his efforts, something he will surely need in his future.






  • Family:

    Mother:
    | Sigrid Hon |
    | Loving, Caring |
    Àki looks up to his Mother greatly, and cares greatly about her. The two formed a very close relationship, and while Áki tends to keep some of his feelings or ideas secret, he does not hesitate to approach Sigrid for help or advice.

    Father:
    | Lokar |
    | Resentful, Fearful |
    The man that made a part of his life hell earns nothing but resentment from Àki, who also fears the man due to the end of their last confrontation.



    Siblings:
    • Áki is an only child.

    Friends:
    | Academy Class |
    | Friendly |
    Àki had no particular problem with anyone in his class, and his behavior - despite sometimes being rash, and actions earned him no negative attitudes either. Generally, he considers his former classmates as his friends, with most of them reciprocating this.



    Other People:

    | Villagers of Bjarnafoss |
    | Admiring, Inspiring |
    Despite not knowing all of the villagers personally, they greatly inspired Àki. Their actions earned the boys admiration and respect, as well as gratitude that he one day hopes to express personally to all of them.


  • Name of Weapon or Item:
    Konoha earphone communicator
    Description:
    A convenient communicator that enables better communication in and between teams. The communicator is small and designed to not cause any irritation for the user. It has some stations, each for a specific group.
    The range/radius to which messages and communication can be held with the use of the communicators is about 2.5 km wide.
    Channel A :
    Is for the team, thus everything that is said in station A will only be transferred and heard by those within the team.
    Channel B :
    Is for every other team in the 2.5 km radius. It will enable and provide communication to Konoha teams and thus enables better teamwork for when two or more teams are in each other's radius, which can lead to more missions with higher chances of success.
    Channel C:
    This is only available for Jounins and leaders of teams. The C station provides communication for leaders of teams, without thus the problem that can be caused if the students also talk through the communicator. It will mostly be used for leaders of teams to direct their teams better in a synchronized attack or movement etc.

    Appearance:

    Standard appearance. Really.


    Name of Weapon or Item:
    Standard Shinobi Tools

      - Custom Lightning Release Techniques -

      Name of Technique:
      Lightning Release : Bursting Current
      Type of Jutsu:
      Offensive
      Rank:
      C
      Range:
      Close ( up to 3m )
      Nature Type:
      Lightning Release
      Handseals:
      Horse - Monkey - Serpent - Ram ( after a delay )
      Description:
      Àki focuses his lightning natured chakra into his shuriken, which he then proceeds to throw at the target. Upon forming the last seal, his lightning chakra will cause the shuriken to shatter into countless small fragments, covering its area in shrapnel that can cause varying degrees of damage.
      Weakness:
      For this technique to achieve its full effect, the users aim in throwing the shuriken must be highly accurate. Even with that, opponents can rather easily get out of the range of the technique and / or move to its edges to reduce its effectiveness. If the technique is not performed properly, the speed of the resulting fragments is also greatly reduced.
    • Áki has no summons yet.

  • Backstory:






    Jin was born and raised in Kumogakure by his widowed mother and distant aunt who ran a supply chain of meat stalls dedicated to meat from the sea. From a young age, Jin had been no stranger to labour often helping his mother with the family business which included carrying boxes, setting the sea creatures on the ice neatly, to removing fish guts. Whenever he wasn't working the employees would take him fishing and it would turn out that he had a knack for it, so the trips would become more frequent and extended until it became his role in business.






    One hot summers day Jin's mother had travelled to the capital, the cashier had fallen ill resulting in Jin having to cover for him. The Saemund have rarely ever been seen in the Lightning Country so it was expected that many of the customers commented on his facial features and skin tone, speaking about the paleness of his skin, whispering about his height and inky black hair and eyes. He'd shrug them off though, as he was used to people asking if we're sick, or people shouting if he had swallowed a beanstalk.






    Month after month Jin would slowly see a decrease in staff, the workload would double, people would become more irritable and dinners became plain and scarce. One night Jin's slumber would be interrupted by heavy footsteps a consequence for being a light sleeper. Jin, unable to sleep as well as curious would roll out of his bed and investigate, moving as silently as he could be. The boy would place his ear to the wall and hear his mother's voice on the verge of breaking then he heard, the wailing of his mother, "what am I going to do, how will we continue living, what about Jin? We have nowhere else to go." His mother's sobs carried on, and for every sobbing sound was gentle, comforting hush from his Aunt. Jin heard everything, money had become harder to grasp and easier lose, they were spending more than they were earning.






    2 weeks had passed since then, but to Jin, it had always felt like yesterday, the stress that consumed his mother was wearing her down, and Jin could see it physically on her, the bags in her eyes from the lack of sleep and too much worrying, she became forgetful, and her sister would have to call her more than twice for her respond. Jin wished he could do something to help his mother, but he just didn't know what to do.






    Returning from fishing, Jin would spot a group of boys his age captured in amazement by Shinobi who had filled their heads with the delusion of a heroes fantasy. Turned out that Shinobi was a scout trying to rope in people for their cause, Jin would find himself closing the distance between him and the group until he was standing alongside them. "What's the salary?" Jin asked noticing the scout's eyes squint as if he were observing him. "A reasonable one." After a moment of silence, the scout would pull some strips of paper from his pocket. He gave one each to the boys including Jin, the instructions sounded simple to Jin. "This is an exciting exercise, it's simple yet can be complimented, the trick is to clear your mind, and don't let go of the paper." Jin closed his eyes, trying to empty his mind, breathing ever so slow. Time passed and some of the boys began to lose interest thinning out the group to 3 people. Jin's concentration would be broken as one of the boys would scream "I got it, look I cut through it." The Shinobi would end the exercise, asking for the paper to be returned to him after congratulating them for their patience. The Shinobi would start from the left. "These papers determine your chakra natures, your specialities. So to cut to the chase, you're Wind, you're Lightning, and you are Water, guys isn't this fascinating?" Jin became hooked, wanting to find out more, he wanted to ask more about the chakra natures the boy tried to, but the scout refused. "Look, I saw something in all of you, a spark of greatness, and potential waiting to be unlocked it, it started with 7 and it is only you 3. To be Shinobi you need many things, but the 1st things you will need is heart, determination, loyalty to your country then the others will come later. Today you boys showed 2 traits, that being heart and determination, now I ask you this will you be loyal to your country, your land, your Raikage who keeps you safe and a roof over your families head, will you grow to be men bringing the bread to your household, or will you stop here? Either way, I won't judge you, but I know if I was in your shoe, this opportunity to put 3 loaves of bread on my families table I wouldn't grip it and not let go." Jin was caught in the fantasy, it indulged his ego, the image of feeding his family by himself, helping his mother, becoming the man of the house, he was inspired.






    When his mother found out, she was very reluctant about letting him join, as he was her only child, she felt she would nobody left if she let him go, however, Jin's inspiration was too strong reason with, he knew something had to be done, he knew money had to come from somewhere, he wanted to be responsible and he would his mother that she had nothing to worry about, reassuring her that things were going to be better, telling her the results of his first test, and thus a drained woman would let her only Son join the Shinobi ranks, praying to Akemi for her son's safe return. Leaving his fishing pole behind to join the academy learning new skills and unlocking natural talents he never knew he had to ready himself for the day he'd return home to see his mother again with the 3 loaves of bread on the table.

    A student of the shadows Jin prefers to blend in with his surroundings, usually perched somewhere, hidden from the enemy with the only thing close to him being his bow. The last skill is sensory being able to sense only mere 80 metres, identifying the chakra signature and memorising it often relaying the information back to his team. His skillset falls into the category of long-ranged. Unfortunately, close combat is not his choice it is something he lacks and needs to work on as he is too weak and easily flustered when it comes to close combat.
