Default |Konohagakure| - Ohayashi Toshiko


Name: Ohayashi Toshiko
Age: Twelve
Sex: Female
Height: 4'10"

Character Type: Shinobi

Country/Village: Hi no Kuni / Konohagakure no Sato
Rank: Genin
Division: Omoi

Clothing and Physical Description: "You have to have the right appearance when you meet people, duh."

How ironic for a girl who generally doesn't stand out in terms of her features to talk about being able to appear and give a lasting impression on a person. In spite of not being blessed with the most pretty of features, glamorous legs, a knockout physique or hair that is particularly nice to look at, Toshiko still manages to do just that. When meeting the girl for the first time, there's nothing in particular that seems to draw attention to her outside of the smile she typically wears. Many comment that she just looks like the easy-going type of ditz that comes out the academy without knowing anything about the world.

She has a pretty sizable repertoire of clothing in her closet and feels no qualm about using any sort of discretion in wearing any of it. Warm weather clothes, cold-weather clothes, accessories, shoes and all the like vary from day to day, but always functional and suited for the task that she plans on performing for the day. Even the placement of her hitai-ate is variable based on what she's wearing. Almost everything that she wears on her body is supposed to draw notice to something that she wants them to, for the purpose of getting a specific reaction, or for a task.

Personality: "I wanna know people. No, no. When I say that I don't mean that I wanna know people. Or that I wanna know people. I mean that I want to know people. Get what I mean?"

An odd seeming series of lines, yes, but one that still fittingly matches the girl nicknamed "Tokko". 'Hyperactive' is probably the first thing that one would mention, describing Toshiko after a first meeting. 'Enthusiastic', would probably be the more accurate word to describe her, the girl herself would say, as the former implies that she has no true outlet for her energy. She is a charismatic, outgoing, and sociable young girl who loves being around people. In large groups, in small groups or individually, just having the opportunity to be around people opens up the possibility to learn many, many things. In fact, many times it's the seemingly trivial things that often come back to being useful information later in the long run. One cannot see the forest without looking at the trees, as the saying goes.

There is a clear difference between the knowing the girl as an acquaintance or a distant classmate and as a friend, though they may seem eerily similar on the surface. While formality is something that the girl doesn't particularly deal with on the surface deeply, Toshiko definitely shows a lot more restraint towards people who are unfamiliar. When around people she trusts well, Tokko is particularly candid and free flowing with how she says things and addresses people. Not typically outright disrespectful, but definitely affronted with the ability to get under the skin of those around. As a person who likes to study people, the genin is one who likes to get down to the bottom of why others do the things that they do. Habits, tendencies, thought processes and more are broken down remarkably well and thoroughly, from the very first meeting. Information is stored or discarded as necessary in order to keep an up-to-date profile on the people she talks to.

Her methods of such, however are sometimes a bit discerning. Because she seeks to understand people so much, there are times where she can go a bit overboard. As a person who lives in the realm of what she calls "social information", she is also a pretty skilled manipulator of it. The very same thought patterns, habits and tendencies are used as tools that she can use to break down a person and get them to do what she wants. Not necessarily in the case of threats and harmful coercion, but more in the light of using emotions that are effective. Hurt, embarrassment, guilt, anger, happiness, sadness... all of these she feels she can utilize to get a reaction out of people. A reaction outside of the comfort zone is exactly what she believes are things that tell you the most about a person. When they're comfortable, one can say just about anything... but when they're not, there isn't a control and their real thoughts and actions come into the light. This can definitely mean that Toshiko is at times misleading, can intentionally be frustrating and be manipulative and cold, but that is just the negative side of the coin. Because she can understand and relate to people, she can also be very empathetic, kind and demonstrate herself as a person of great trust. One must always be wary, however.

Outside of the mental arena is a different story, however. Not being particularly practical means that while that while Tokko could likely be a person that is able to break down a concept or to come up with a plan, she is almost essentially useless when it comes to actually carrying it out. Putting actual effort into things that don't catch her fancy is particularly difficult, as Toshiko has a stubborn lazy streak. If it ''doesn't catch her eyes" as something worth doing, it's very likely that it will be ignored. Most of what she does comes out of the pursuit of knowledge or the pursuit of entertainment at this point, so using what she knows about people for people is not a step that the pre-teen has taken yet.

Her ability to get along with those around her is notable, but the want to really connect herself with them is severely lacking. Rather than truly being able to appreciate those around her, she is more typically prone to take advantage of the opportunity to dig deeper in her friends psyche rather than to extend more of herself to them. While she has a pretty general sense of herself: her likes, dislikes and interests, her want... no, need to understand people and stay ahead of the curve definitely overpower it.

Biography: "When someome deals with discomfort is where you'll really find out how they tick."

All of her life, Ohayashi Toshiko has found herself enamored with people. Her interests started from a particularly young age, taking in her surroundings and committing the most interesting things around to memory. Awareness of one's surroundings is already something that everyone who can function gains an awareness of, but maybe in Toshiko's case it's more true than for most others. It's hard to accurately pinpoint when the girl gravitated her focus from "things" to "people", but her focus on the latter has been prominent in her growth towards the young woman she is today.

Her family life is the only thing that doesn't seem to reflect this. While not out of the ordinary when one looks from a distance, her relationship with her kin certainly isn't the best one. Both her mother and her father have been together for far longer than both she and her older sister's lifespans and, short of the tumultuous times that have rocked Konohagakure in recent years, seem to still be as in love and amiable with each other as they were when they were first married. Both treat their daughters fairly and firmly, with more than enough care. She and her sister get along well enough for two siblings around the same age. Still when one looks deeper, it's quite easy to note that Toshiko is distanced from her family members. Almost as if she is more of an observer in her household than an actual member.

This of course, extended into her life as an academy student. In class, hers was a presence that was warm and friendly, soothing for others to be around and naturally apt for being one that could share things with. Silly things, personal things, things that were trusted never to be told to another party. It was almost too perfect, to have someone seemingly so kind and wise --- never forthcoming with information meant to be kept secret and also quiet enough that they don't draw attention. Toshiko's smile was disarming, but strained... after a while. It was surprisingly hard to be able to speak when one was listening all the time after all.

That was when she decided to change herself. Toshiko discovered "words" in this sense, or rather the ability that her words had on other people. Because she was so kind, so trusting and because she knew her friends so well and how they worked, she was able to make suggestions and dissolve conflicts within her groups. While she wasn't particularly popular still, it allowed her to gain more of a control over her environment and help out those she considered friends... or so she thought. As it turns out, not everyone was a fan of the new "Tokko". Some thought she was overstepping her boundaries too much, that she was a busybody and the like. It was never to her face, but she still knew. Even though she knew, it didn't seem to bother her on the surface and in her interactions with her peers. Wearing the same smile, she greeted and joked with the children around her, but internally the faith she held on to for connecting herself with her peers was shaken. When she met eyes with her peers now, she couldn't quite see the warmth in them that she thought she saw before. Or rather, she couldn't believe it. After all that time and all that support that she gave, where was hers reciprocated? The question was rhetorical of course. She had none ...and so, with that realization, she graduated from the Academy. She hoped that things were going to be different once she graduated, but the only thing that greeted her out of the academy and in her even younger days of geninhood were turmoil.

Konohagakure no Sato was a mess. Though, likely it had been a mess for far longer than she had been born. Maybe for longer than her parents had been born. These times, however, were among the worst in recent years --- if the whispers of various members of the village were true. Attacks, betrayals, incompetence, loss, an unnecessary war. Every village had their fair share of problems, but Konoha had always been the best, it had always been invincible. Now, with every incident that passed through, one after the other, the Hidden Leaf's illusion of invulnerability and the "Will of Fire" of it's citizens was being torn apart. No more did that speak true than when it was spilled by Sanada Sanshiro that his bloodline clan had a relation to the monsters that had attacked them.

Distrust was already breeding stronger than ever as they continued to sit with an absentee Hokage and after the destruction of Yukigakure. Questions drifted from place to place, through shopping districts and within homes about the loyalty of certain members of their populace. Who knew what else was coming next. Was it really okay for the Sanada to be there? Everyone was starting to turn colder to the bloodline clan, who were already watched passively before. In response, the Sanada became even more scarce around the village. Why did the ANBU choose to return back now of all times? Did they really think that they were going to be accepted back so smoothly? Didn't the ANBU abandon and betray them? Toshiko could see the seeds of doubt in her people's eyes, feel the way that the metaphorical air was tingling, sense the uncertainty that the denizens had for the village's future. People were waiting for something to happen.

Toshiko was waiting as well. Not for the event that would come afterwards, however. Things were always going to happen. It's the people who have those things happen to them that you need to watch for. The people were the lifeblood of a place, the ones you had to be watching. She would be there and she would watch how they moved. It was the only way she could protect herself.

I could be wrong since these aren’t actually labeled, but it looks as though your pool points may be off by one. 3 + 4 + 2 = 9. As your primary block, you should have one more to spend here.

FIX IT. Then have a Leaf GM Approval.
