Default [Sound Jinchuuriki] Utsuwa Juukyuu


Name: 5N19, Utsuwa "Kyou" Juukyuu
Age: 16
Height: 5'5"

Character Type: Jinchuuriki

Country: Otogakure no Sato, Ta no Kuni

Rank: Hiyoutori
Division: Kariinu - Path of Flesh

Appearance - Small, lithe and solid. With a lower center of gravity, honed for agility and flexibility, 5N19 was built from the ground up on the genetic level to serve as the host for a catlike spirit of darkness and it shows. Her skin is unhealthily pale and easily burned, with several surgical scars in unobtrusive places. Kyou's hair is stark white, slightly wavy and falls back over her back when she keeps it free. Otherwise, she leaves it in a ponytail. When disguising herself as a regular human, her eyes appear green. But when not, they are orange, with vertical, slitted pupils.

In the course of most of her duties, Kyou dresses in black. She wears a dark full-body suit, with a dark, hooded cloak hung over her back, turning her frame into a somewhat intimidating silhouette. When the Naga wish to show her off, she usually must wear something more ostentatious.

Outside of that, she still dresses darkly, but prefers to vary it up a little, with multiple layers, and many different sort of styles, though she favors dresses, skirts and tank tops. Something of a 'staple' for her through all my varied outfits is a black hooded jacket with a skull on the back. It is faded and torn in several places.

Personality - It was impressed upon Kyou from an early age that she existed to serve the Naga above all others. They skipped most of the mind-altering techniques that might have turned Kyou into a more obedient slave for them out of fear of contaminating their precious sample, but instead used simple, old-fashioned brainwashing. It probably would have worked better if there hadn't been another voice in her head hissing at everything they ever said to her.

Kyou doesn't trust easily. She hasn't really experienced altruism from others, and doesn't really trust it. Everyone, she is certain, is batting for their own team, their own goals that undercut everything they do. To say she doesn't trust easily would be a vast understatement. She plays the role of a dutiful servant, always looking for an angle that helps her and hers.

It's no surprise, then, that Kyou is a little socially inept. She is quick to read hostile intentions where there is none and is easily flustered in social circumstances which do not meet her expectations, which are most of them. The grim darkness of the Naga caverns do not prepare one for the realities of living in a world that isn't a constant competition on who can be the biggest edgelord.

Jinchuurikido; Way Of The Sacrifice - "One day, I'll slip this leash."
Yajuudo; Way Of The Beast - "LESSER BEINGS KNEEL."

Primary Archetype - Spirit-Breeder {}
Spirit-Breeder Jinchuuriki can use the energy from their own Bijuu to either charm a Bijuuko/Lesser Bijuu, or spawn a Bijuuko. If a Spirit-Breeder destroys or defeats a Bijuu of a lower rank in a thread, they can use their own Bijuu's power to turn it to their side, gaining it as an accomplice. This weaker Bijuu will loyally fight for the Jinchuuriki, using a body of pure chakra.

Spirit-Breeder Jinchuuriki can never have more Bijuu pets than the number of tails on the Bijuu they host. Their Bijuu pets can never rise beyond having one tail. Bijuu pets grow just like a hosted Bijuu does, or the Jinchuuriki can feed the Bijuu pets the power of their hosted Bijuu, losing a point and transferring it to a pet.

If a Bijuu pet is at its maximum stats, it can be consumed by the hosted Bijuu, or another of the Bijuu pets, to give that Bijuu 3 stat points that thread.

Any round where a Bijuu pet is attacked, gain 5 drive. If the Bijuu pet is hit, gain 10 drive.
Any round where a Bijuu pet is destroyed, gain 20 drive.
Primary: Chakra
Stats: +3 Mental, -3 Physical
Breeders are unique, bijuu have some unnatural attraction to them. Their own bijuu may be a charmer, able to influence their fellow monsters, or maybe it is something that drew the bijuu to the jinchuuriki in the first place. No matter how it happened, now the bijuu is inside the host, and more bijuu want in as well.

Inventory

Abyss Armor - 5 (Limb Armor [Arms] 1 + Limb Armor [Legs] 1 + Body Armor 2 + Repair 1)
A pitch black, intimidating looking armor of Naga make, this full suit of armor was built with fabric infused with chakra harvested from Ssyba. In a meaningful way, it is very much alive. The path of rituals is proud of the way it attempts to knit itself back together and suspects that further exposure to Ssyba may spark further evolution.

Corrupted Amulet - 4 (Extrasensory [Other Bijuu/Bijuuko] 2, Trick Lock [Jinchuuriki Only] 2)
A tarnished silver coin with a faceless woman on one side and an uncomfortable, writhing symbol on the other. Kyou found it within the treasury of a rogue Naga lab which refused to share its discoveries with The Five. Kyou 'forgot' to turn it in. Extended exposure to Ssyba's charka has altered it, making it unsafe for anyone not tainted with Bijuu chakra to handle. She wears it on a chain around her neck, and the amulet grows colder when more bijuu, bijuuko or jinchuuriki are near.

Feline Eyes - 3 (Night Vision 2 + Implanted 1)
Initial tests found that subjects that more closely resembled a spirit's 'animal' form were more likely to survive merging. Kyou's orange, slitted, catlike eyes are a side-effect of the Naga's attempts to exploit this. It provides the fringe benefit of low-light vision for the vessel, and so no attempt was ever made to cut this feature from the gene pool.

Weapon Points Remaining: 0
Weapon Points Purchased: 4

The task of sealing bijuu and turning their powers to the purpose of the Naga has, historically speaking, been the passion of the Path of Rituals. To seal the beast, cage it and turn it into a tool. Few others had interest in bijuu aside from scant, academic interest. But . . . Tales circulated, of beasts brought to serve a Jinchuuriki not by the compulsion of spell and magic but the potency of spirit and allure of their flesh.

The fleshsmiths of the Naga began to ask themselves . . . Could we create such a person? Construct a vessel fit to house a bijuu with the substance of their own flesh? Agents of the Naga scattered, attempting to gather the remains of departed Jinchuuriki, the blood of spirit-touched miko, the remains of beasts twisted by supernatural presence. They gathered their samples. Some sought to take those who already lived and change them into the manner of creatures that could contain a bijuu. Others attempted to create vessels from scratch, creating new life in artificial wombs, sure their results would be fair better, even if it took longer.

These Naga created people, little different from any other, who were killed by the merging process or became mere husks, driven by a spirit. They created monsters of hideous shapes, malformed bodies that collapsed under their own awkward weight as they aged. Vessel 5N19 was 'born' into this program as batch 5N, a refined product of Naga spawning pools, the result of many failed batches. Her 'siblings' were the other 5N variants. None of them died from spawning complications and were shaped more or less like people.

For a while, they were raised in relative peace. Unlike many Naga experiments, what was done to them had already been done, and nobody wanted to add foreign containments that might jeopardize the experiment. For a long time they were safe.

Then the time came for the experiment to conclude, and they died, or worse than died, one after another. 5N19 was the last of their batch, and she watched from an observation window while the little bijuuko who she had been told to conquer possessed and devoured the minds of their siblings in front of them. When it was 5N19's turn, they were dragged into the room screaming, in chains. A man with sunken eyes, and frantic hair, with a strange seal burned into his forehead, forced the bijuuko that had killed all her siblings inside her.

The struggle was desperate and immediate. Perhaps it had been worn down by the fight with their siblings. Perhaps 5N19's will was simply that strong. Or perhaps 5N19 really was that special. But as 5N19 struggled with the bijuuko and their spirits intermingled, they emerged as the dominant mind.

The Naga had not been prepared for this eventuality. 5N had always been intended as sacrificial batch to help the Naga better understand the points of failure. 5N19 was left to the prodding and experiments of Naga curious as to the means of their survival and the muttering incoherence of a barely-sapient spirit beast living in her head. 5N19 was introduced to Naga who wanted to understand a fascinating surprise.

Handlers were quickly selected from among the upper echelons of the Naga who had been part of the experiment's success to serve as 5N19's caretakers, which boiled down to having right over where she went, what she did, and what secondary experiments she was involved with. Most of them were members of the path of flesh, who she had come to know very well, but prominent among them was the man from outside the path who had sealed Ssyba into the child in the first place.

Naga in regular contact with 5N19 were woefully unprepared to deal with the emotional needs of a child. 5N19 was treated as a prized pet rather than a person and heavily restricted. In quiet rebellion, 5N19 picked her own name.

Kyou didn't have the brains or 'spark' to join the researchers, so they were schooled in the manner of agents of the Naga. They were taught as shinobi are taught, to mold chakra, but the experience was drastically different from those of the Nomads who then still wandered at chance's fickle whimsy. As a child, they guarded little thing, carried reagents. Played errand girl. As she got bigger, there were more dangerous things. Experiments that had to be put down. Inquisitive detectives that needed be put down. Small Naga outposts who had forgotten who they owed their loyalty to.

As far as experiments go, Kyou was 'lucky.' She was actively taught by Naga who were assigned to teach her. Many were simply left behind to succeed or die, but Kyou was a symbol of the progress her lab had made, the solitary success of her experiment, and they carried her wherever they went, displaying her as a showpiece.

All the while, the bijuuko in their head changed. It evolved from a wild convulsion of instinct, want and animal need into a mind that had been part of who Kyou was for so long they no longer understood what it meant to be truly in control. It called itself Ssyba, and she was Kyou's constant companion. They learned to tolerate each other's presence, their relationship becoming symbiotic, with Kyou serving as a more potent body than Ssyba could have created on their lonesome, while Ssyba roused to alertness whenever Kyou fell upon hazards.

Yet . . . Ssyba squirmed under Naga scrutiny. She remembered being killed and mutilated by them. Serving as their toy, walking in day after day for their experiment, standing guard over their dens . . . Ssyba's resentment built. As did Kyou's. But they were watched carefully, and there was little room for revolt. Only when the nomads returned did Kyou see opportunity for change.

For when the Nomads returned and the Naga raised the village from the earth, the shinobi who had been Nomads were upset that the Naga had been hiding from them all this time, that they had still waited, in a village they had not spoken of, beneath the earth itself. The Naga made reparations with the Nomads and granted them many allowances.

Juukyuu was one such allowance. A weapon on loan from the Naga to Reimei; a Jinchuuriki of Sound's own at last, after all these years. Reimei answered the Naga's honored gift with an honored place among his Kariinu, not as a reflection of his trust in Kyou, but as a gesture of thanks toward the Naga. Her nature as a Jinchuuriki was concealed from the Sound populace at large and she was incorporated into the populace as one among many experiments-turned-shinobi.

While the knowledge that those above her consider her property chafes, as a shinobi Kyou is privy to many freedoms that were before denied to her. Peers outside of the gaggle of misfits that were the experiment stock of the Naga. The potential of a future outside the carefully sanitized world that was prepared for her. Ssyba remains unhappy as ever, but Kyou is satisfied.

For now.

Merged Bijuu: Ssyba
Creature Type: Cat
Rank: No Tail Bijuuko

Appearance - Ssyba is a 'fresh' Bijuuko. Not reborn, not remade, an original creature, harvested from the world's little calamities. She is a monster, but compared to the bijuu of myth, she is a barely more than a pet cat. Nevertheless, Ssyba has settled into the form of the predator, though at present she is much smaller than her host. Ssyba's body is made of darkness that makes the space between the stars look like a bank of snow on a sunny day. The only way to make our the shape and dimension of Ssyba beyond their sillouette are her other markings; lines of white across her back and face, with spots of white on her underside. Ssyba's eyes are bright yellow.

Personality - Ssyba is a troubling parter. She is a fierce, cunning and deeply independent soul. Her concerns and priorities are straightforward; power, food and independence. Grudgingly, she has come to accept Kyou as her partner, not merely out of necessity but because of the advantages that a human host offers her for survival but the truth of this is a little less straightforward.

She cannot deny her nature as an independent creature, a whole and pure hunter. Yet, Ssyba exists as a symbiont instead, a creature hanging from the underbelly of another, acting according to the whims of lesser beings. It is Ssyba and Kyou's mutual unhappiness with this arrangement that has allowed for them to reach an uneasy accord with one another. Yet both of them would deal with the problem in distinctly different ways.

When Kyou falls into remission and Ssyba takes control, she does things her way. No compromises.

Other Info:
  • As an artificial human, Kyou's biology has several quirks, including making her red-green colorblind, an obligate carnivore and unable to taste sweet flavors.
  • Kyou's formal designation (5N19) stands for: Batch five, variant N, specimen nineteen.
  • Kyou picked her own name. But many still refer to Kyou by her formal designation, especially among the Naga.
  • Variant N vessels of batch five are based on the spliced genetic material of a long-dead yokai whisperer named Momodora Kinpa. And cats.

I like the premise of this character. That said, you have an issue.

Characters created as new Jinchuuriki have less starting techniques. Genin have 2 less techniques, Chuunin have 3 less, Jounin have 4 less, and Sennin have 6 less.
Other than that, everything looks good. I believe you called 5T19 5ST19 at one point in the bio, and you labeled Ssyba as Tendra as well.

Ah! I thought I might have missed a stat drain thing. I didn't notice one on second pass, but there it is. I'll fix it. But she actually IS using the diminished number of techniques already.

And those were some different names, leftover from an earlier draft. Both fixed.

I'm sorry, I'm not sure if it's just, procedural memory driving me in making her, or if my reading comprehension just failed me outright. Now it should be fine. Had to shift my jutsu around a bit to accommodate the stat loss, but it works out now.
