Default Taki Genin - Tachibana Akiko

Name: Tachibana Akiko
Age: 15
Sex: Female
Height: 162.6 cm (5 ft 4 in)

Character Type: Kunoichi

Country/Village: Land of Waterfalls/Takigakure no Sato
Rank: Genin
Division: Nukenin

Physical Description: Akiko stands at 162.6 cm (5 ft 4 in) and weighs 51.8 kg (114 lbs). Her head is a triangle shape, having a broad forehead but her chin coming down to a smooth point. Her eyes have an almond shape to them. Akiko also has dimples that show whether she smiles or not. Usually she has a grin that stretches from ear to ear. Her body shape resembles a triangle; her chest, instead of being around the same width of her hips, is actually smaller. The clothing she wears usually emphasizes her features. Akiko has beautiful porcelain skin that is speckled with freckles. Her hair provides contrast to her ginger locks. Her hair is an untamed mass of curls that come down just past her shoulder. In her efforts on keeping her curls under control, she sweeps her hair onto her right shoulder and braids a flower and green ribbon into a section of it. Against her porcelain skin, and ginger curls, her pixie violet eyes pop and are usually the first trait noticed by strangers. The other feature that is usually noticed is her tattoo of the kanji for Nature on her left shoulder blade.

Clothing: The outfit Akiko is typically seen in is a mesh shirt that hangs off her shoulders, a dress fading from forest green to beige, and a black archer's glove. Mounted on her back is a golden bow with a matching quiver that carries ten standard arrows. The dress is sleeveless and has two dark green ribbons that tie above and below the bodice to keep the dress up. During one of her missions, the dress got torn over her right leg, so Akiko took the excess ribbon off the back of the dress and made a makeshift tie. She is almost never seen with shoes, but when she is wearing shoes it is usually green ninshoes. Her second outfit still has her mesh shirt and the black archer's glove. Though instead of the dress, she wears a beige crop jacket with bandages around her chest underneath and forest green shorts.

Personality: Akiko is best described as an extrovert. She is highly energetic, full of enthusiasm, and of course easily socialable. She truly believes she is one of the friendliest Shinobis out in the world, which brings a naive downfall to her. Akiko is always lending a helping hand and is very dependable when something needs to be done. She isn't emotional unless it concerns excitement. Akiko also radiates confidence in, almost, everything she does. She is very open minded and intelligent. On missions, if Akiko is sent solo, she usually thinks only on her intuition. If she is with others, she changes her ways of thinking to rational and logical, making sure to go over every fact to come up with the best outcome.

-----------------------------------------

Biography: Almost seventy years ago, there was a great catastrophe in the Land of Waterfalls. The event was so devastating that the country fell to pieces. During the time of the tragedy, the non-Shinobi civilians were evacuated. Many of the families scattered around the world, but the Tachibana and a few others settled down in vast wilderness of Bear Country. The Tachibana was one of the families that got to be evacuated with few Shinobi to protect them. Those few Shinobi became the leaders and the teachers to any of the children who showed talent in the ninja ways, and they passed down the headbands of those who passed in the war to those who graduated the make-shift school system.

As time progressed, fewer and fewer children showed talent in the shinobi ways. It got to the point that the power was only held by three, two of Akiko's uncles and Akiko's grandfather. The generation after seemed that the talent would fizzle out. Then a miracle struck the Tachibana family, Akiko and her younger brother was born. Unfortunately her younger brother did not make it past the age of four, but Akiko showed great skill in the ninjutsu and taijutsu arts. They started to train her and hone her skills. Akiko's training was brutal since she was the only student.

It went months where her uncles and her grandfather took turns training her and showing her different styles of fighting: ninjutsu, taijutsu, genjutsu, and archery. While Akiko completely failed her Genjutsu tests, she passed her Ninjutsu, and surpassed Taijutsu and Archery. With her skill blooming - they concentrated on working with her on Taijutsu, Archery, and just barely touching on Ninjutsu.

Eventually, by the age of eleven, it got to the point where Akiko would spar with her teachers and surpass them. As a reward she was given a golden bow, a bow that only she could use. She was also rewarded with a quiver full of ten arrows. These arrows were a tad special because she was able to transmit her chakra into them to do special techniques like the Hariganeya (Tracer Arrow). As she defeated the three current shinobi of her family, she was bestowed one of the remaining Takigakure headbands.

She was unsatisfied with her ability as a Shinobi. "This training wasn't even real!" she would scream at her uncles and grandfather. Akiko did not believe that she could compete with other Shinobi who were supposed to be at the same skill level as she. "This is the best we can do." was always the answer that Akiko would get. It infuriated her. She could not look most of the family in the eye because of their lack of skill, and as for the leaders - she was ashamed that they could not offer more.

When Akiko turned fourteen, she had quite enough. She no longer felt challenged and wanted to become more powerful. As she packed up her stuff, her mother engaged her - trying to talk her out of leaving. "There is nothing for me here..." Akiko stated as cold as ice to the non-Shinobi woman who gave birth to her and raised her. Akiko averted her eyes and left in the middle of the night. When Akiko tried to leave, she encountered her two uncles. "You cannot leave, you are the only Shinobi of this generation," they pleaded. Akiko's face twisted up in disgust, "Shinobi do not beg!" She pressed onward. They blocked her path again, determined not to allow her to leave.

Akiko ended up being engaged in battle with her uncles. Even though, they had more experience, Akiko easily defeated them and was on her way. "No sweat... she smirked confidently. While she was distracted, Akiko ran into her grandfather. "You're not leaving." "Bet me." The two engaged into a fight. This one was not easily won for Akiko. She tried her best against the old-timer. He got in quite a few hits, but so did she. It lasted several minutes, to the point they were huffing and puffing on their separate sides of the path. "I'm surprised old man..." "You smug little brat!" Her grandfather lunged at her with a Kunai and ended up engraving a swipe across the Taki symbol. Akiko took this chance and shoved a dagger into the man's chest. He gasped, spitting out blood as he did so. Finally, the battle was over. Akiko brushed herself off and treated her wounds before she left and never looked back.

I can't get approvals, so I'm not going to worry to much about the story, particularly since Takigakure's existence is up to the mods at hand, but I can look at your stats.

You only used 7 points in your secondary block. Genin get 8.

And you've only taken 5 jutsu when you get 7. I suggest you shuffle some stuff around, maybe take global ninjutsu (if you're wanting to make swaps for arrow skills, you can do so in that list as well, or make them as taijutsu specials providing they correlate appropriately.)

I fixed the stats, but I left those slots open on purpose because I wanted to get a Summoning Contract that you cannot get when a character is first created.

Okay, so I'm a bit confused and it may be because things weren't explained properly or are laid out weird.

As it is now. Your character has all the jutsu points used and all your lists used. That's because you have a ninjutsu and three taijutsu trees: two archery styles and a hand to hand. With physical primary, you can take two tai styles at one jutsu point each for each stage and/or special tech. Taking a third taijutsu tree would eat two jutsu points for each stage and/or tech.

Since genin can only have four lists, all of them are used. I got the impression, because of how your sheet was laid out, you lumped the two archery taijutsu styles together thinking it was one list. Even though they're both archery, they're still separate styles.

So, if you want to pick up Universal Summons, you'll need to drop a list. I'd recommend one of the archery styles. But then you run into the problem of still not having enough stat points to pick up any other techs... and those can only be spent at creation. Not saved for later.

Alright, so I have it fixed. I decided against the Universal Summons for this character since I'm pretty happy with her stats and Archetype and if I dropped lists, I'd lose jutsu. How does she look now?

Okay, I want you to be aware of how difficult what you are attempting to do is. As a villageless shinobi, you will have no GM who is obligated to help you. If you go into a village or involve yourself with any arc it will be because you made plans with the gm. And the gm is not obligated to accept them. Finding threads for a villageless or rogue shinobi is one of the hardest things to do. Keep that in mind if you move forward with this character.

Normally we do not allow villages other than the listed ones to exist, but I am making an exception because Waterfall is effectively dead, a tiny blip that does not interfere with anyone's lore.

Approved

I have a ronin and a nukenin that can play with you, that being said. Half approval.
