Default Kensei Toushi [Mist Jounin]

Name: Kensei Toushi
Age: 23
Sex: Male
Height: 5’7

Character Type: Shinobi

Country/Village: Water Country / Mist Village
Rank: Jounin
Division: Petty Officer of Mist’s Navy

Physical Description: Toushi is a pale-skinned man, standing at average height but with a well-toned, but not so bulky muscular build due to the physical training he had to endure. His arms are relatively large due to being accustomed to wielding a heavy sword. The Kensei has really dark and long, silky brown hair going down below his neck from the back of his head and covering the sides of his head on the front but it’s sometimes tied behind his head. Toushi’s eyes are gray colored and His beard is very thin and light chin curtain style.

Clothing: Toushi sports long, plain, black boots that reach up halfway to his knee, keeping his clean and warm in most types of terrain. He wears a pair of dark green, loose-fitting pants. Around his shins, he has a piece of dark orange cloth wrapped tight in that area with numerous, small vertical pockets on each one to carry small objects. Toushi wears a large, light brown shirt with long sleeves and it hands down to below the waist area. Above that shirt, Toushi wears a second one; a short, dark green shirt with short sleeves and it reaches slightly above his waist. Below the shorter shirt, Toushi has a green cloth of his shirt’s color wrapped around his waist as a makeshift belt. The inner shirt’s sleeves are tucked inside the jounin’s long, light brown gloves. A large cape-like cloth is tied loosely around his neck, hanging on his right shoulder, and it goes all the way down to somewhere around his shin. He has a small metal plate with the village's logo tied around his left arm, under the shoulder.

Personality: Toushi is generally calm and collected unless he is put under too much physical pressure or when someone tells him he’s wrong when he is convinced otherwise and has a hard time of letting such things go. He’s somewhat of a bookworm and his behavior often shows it; he constantly pursues knowledge and loves to share what he knows about a subjects and he is usually the first to jump in to correct a wrong fact. The Kensei didn’t attaint his rank by becoming a friendly bookworm but his extensive encyclopedic knowledge (politics excluded) extends into the shinobi business, causing him to be knowledgeable and experienced and he has a strong sense of duty and he follows his work ethics. As a senior in rank to many shinobi in the village, he believes it’s his duty to assist them with whatever he knows.

Nindo; "Way of the Ninja": "You're not what your jutsu make you, but you're what your knowledge and experiences make out of you."

Primary Archetype:
Archetypes: Ninjutsu Specialist – Genjutsu Specialist
Combo Special: You may spend up to two rather than one thread points on jutsu. The second point spent on jutsu must always be a Genjutsu or Ninjutsu.
Description: Bookworms are the rare Shinobi that have dedicated their lives to the art of perfect Chakra manipulation. For this reason, they have mastered both Ninjutsu and Genjutsu, believing that a mastery of Chakra entails every aspect of it. Bookworms are typically very intelligent Shinobi that don't necessarily read all the time, but give off that impression simply through their acumen.

Toushi comes from a family that consisted mostly of non-shinobi, but the presence of a shinobi in the family wasn’t rare. His mother is a shinobi of jounin rank. That leads people to automatically assume that she is a strong woman and that is a sound assumption as she is strong in both personality and brute strength. On the other hand, Toushi’s father is a successful business man who works in the pearl business. He hires divers to gather pearls, then he hires people to make the pearls into various accessories and after the accessories are made, then he gives the accessories to clerks so they could sell them, but he sometimes does big trades himself. No one knows how the business originally started and it is suspected that his money was gained by shady means.

Toushi is the older of two brothers, and by being the firstborn of a rich business man, he was spoiled until he was given a younger brother. The attention was divided between the two of them and Toushi was no longer the constant center of attention. Toushi, despite his young age wasn’t materialistic and was quite selfless. He didn’t care much about not being spoiled since he was satisfied as long as he had a toy or two and some books to read. Reading became a hobby of his soon after he learned to read and he didn’t just read children stories, but liked to read informative things suitable for his age. He had a knack for learning and was what kids like to call a “nerd”. He didn’t have many friends and spent most of his time at home and most of it reading or studying.

At around the age of 8 Toushi’s left the country in a ship, heading towards a country that the 8-year-old couldn’t be bothered to remember. The father’s ship was attacked by pirates. They boarded the ship in the middle of the sea and killed all the ship’s crew while they stole anything of value; which was a whole lot in that ship. That group of pirates was probably set for life after that raid of theirs due to the value of the merchandise carried by Toushi’s father. From that day on, Toushi and his brother were raised by their mother. She kept doing her shinobi business and did some work to continue her husband’s business. She kept having less and less time for her children and she was worried about having trouble raising them.

To be taught discipline, Toushi was placed in the shinobi academy while his mother took his brother handle the business or running errands, and when she was on a mission, he was given to other people for care, Toushi on the other hand was being taught to be dependant at a very young age. He was alone most of the time, but it didn’t bother him much since he wasn’t a very social person at that age. He attended the academy, he read, did homework, he trained and he ate; that was pretty much what his daily activities were. Due to the nature of his activities, he excelled in what he was taught and was at the top of his class. When it came to written tests, he was at the top of his class and he did a decent job in applying what he learned.

At the age of twelve, the young Kensei graduated from the academy. He was placed in a fight against another genin wannabe. He didn’t like the idea of fighting a comrade for the promotion, but that was how the system worked, so he fought the fellow genin while trying not to hurt him. He ended the fight with a few blunt strikes with a chain to his head, knocking him unconscious and obtaining the rank of genin. With that, he successfully defeated his partner without causing any permanent damage, and he was happy about the promotion and satisfied with the victory itself as it gave him a nice ego boost. He made himself and his mother proud. At that point in life, he wanted to join the mist navy. He remembered well what happened to his father. He didn’t want revenge since he was mature enough to realize that killing his father’s killer would solve nothing. He wanted to join the navy to prevent similar occurrences from happening to anyone else. It wasn’t a grudge, but he was already a ninja so he wanted to go to the path which would help that goal.

As a young navy genin, or Seaman as the navy people would have called him, he was placed in a ship so that meant he was often away from home, making him miss being on dry land, inside a nice house but he eventually got used to that. He stayed with his mother and brother when he was home, but not even all the time since he also had shinobi business to attend to at home, and so did his mother. On the ship, Toushi was given the most basic of tasks which mostly involved keeping the ship clean. His only other duty was to do whatever the Ensigns felt like making him do. During his time as a Seaman, Toushi learned discipline and the art of following orders and performing them correctly. The Kensei was the crew’s favorite Seaman on the ship and that was in some ways in his favor, and in some ways it wasn’t. It caused everyone to look for him to make the deck sparkly, to have the fish cooked in the absence of a better cook, or to have him as a messenger between two ship members. It was good to him in the way that everyone realized that there wasn’t anything else he could learn from being a Seaman.

At the age 16, Toushi was promoted into chuunin. His title in the navy also changed, it shifted from Seaman to Ensign. The chuunin’s ship didn’t change, but part of the crew did. The Seamen he worked with were replaced by others, ones who were far less experienced but the Ensigns were mostly the same as before and the ship had the same officer, too.

Toushi had become a position of some authority in the ship and felt like it was his duty to teach what he could since he felt it was his duty to pass down knowledge to the following generation. He didn’t like relying on Seamen to work for him and they liked him for that, but the other Ensigns thought that was a sign of weakness. Toushi personally thought that it was enough that they constantly did their regular chores, so there was no point in having the kids do his work for him unless he was too busy to do his own work.

Toushi worked around the ship and made sure the lower ranked kids were doing their job and that everything was running smoothly whether it came to ship maintenance or when it came to letting the Seamen know what they’re supposed to do and give them boring lectures whenever he felt one was needed. He wasn’t the loud type of superior because yelling often made speech go through one ear and out of the other but there’s a better chance that someone will hear a lecture, or at least part of it. At least that’s how it was for Toushi.

He spent many years constantly being on board the ship, maintaining its well being and keeping an eye on the crew’s discipline while working alongside the other Ensigns under the leadership of the Petty Officer who was basically the co-big boss in the ship. The officer led the crew against many a ship battle, most of them against pirates who prey on merchant ships; that was the type that Toushi was expected to carry a grudge against, but he treated them just like any other criminal around; with a polite and respectful attitude, until it came down to combat.

Through his time in the navy, Toushi became a young, battle-hardened warrior who came to love life on the sea. Other than fighting the occasional pirate group and the occasional yelling that happened at least once or twice a day, the ship was a peaceful place which allowed Toushi to sit down with a view to the ocean and with a book at hand and he continued to read. The only times he longed for returning to dry land was when he ran out of reading material.

As the years went by Toushi was a victor of many battles and a war-veteran of the war against the seagull country. He had many chances of proving himself in the war and in peace time and he used all those chances. Whether it came to fighting a pirate, a seagull warrior or the occasional missing nin, he was doing a good job and eventually the authorities realized that he was in place for a promotion; he was given the rank of jounin. That time however, his navy rank stayed the same but he was respected more than before by all the other crew members.
