Default [Leaf Chuunin] Aramaki Tenzan

Name: Aramaki Tenzan
Age: 18
Height: 5' 11"
Weight: 240 lbs.

Character Type: Shinobi

Country/Village: Fire Country / Hidden Leaf
Rank: Chuunin
Division: Hada

Physical Description: Tenzan is a rather unkempt young man, all things considered, but what many would call a rugged sort of handsome. Easily picked out of a crowd by his wild, albeit short black hair, thick eyebrows, and pronounced sideburns, Tenzan often seems unfocused until something catches his attention. His dark brown eyes add to his otherwise unassuming demeanor, accentuating the illusion of hidden aggression underneath his otherwise unremarkable exterior. Varying shades of scars criss-cross his tanned skin and his build is especially muscular; it doesn't show as much as one would expect from a body builder, but his athleticism and agility shows in every movement, like a predator constantly on the hunt.

Clothing: Tenzan's one true rule when it comes to clothing is 'comfort'. When teaching, Aramaki Tenzan dresses the part of a taijutsu instructor, usually wearing a white t-shirt and red track pants. His red jacket bears the kanji for "courage" on the back in white, and the symbol of Hidden Leaf is woven into the right side near his chest. White bandages are usually wrapped around his hands, and his feet are covered by black shinobi sandals. On especially formal occasions, Tenzan wears a black gakuran with the same "courage" kanji in white on the back.

Personality: Tenzan is incredibly proud and at times defiant, constantly pushing the boundaries of what might normally be acceptable for someone his age. Despite his quiet nature, he's usually a very positive young man in the face of diversity--as far as he's concerned, life IS diversity.

Tenzan is unwaveringly devoted to the few people he trusts, and holds grudges with a legendary fervor. He approaches everything with an almost feral tenacity that he applies to just about everything he does. As a result, he's often viewed as stubborn, hard-headed, and reckless--or, on the positive side, courageous, bold, and fearless. He isn't much for manners, but he does know what respect is. The problem is, he often feels that everyone around him has to earn that respect. Once earned, he's as loyal as any blood relative--and on the opposing end of the spectrum, he can be a vicious adversary when betrayed.

Nindo: "Survival? It ain't a right; it's a privilege."

Biography: "You were born to be a shinobi."

Tenzan had heard those seven words, or some variant of them, all his life. While not the most prominent shinobi of the Village Hidden in the Leaves, Aramaki Kenai pressed his son to become everything he could be and more. No effort on Tenzan's part ever seemed to be good enough, and with his mother constantly sick, there was little counterpoint to his father's constant pushing.

He was hardly a workaholic as an Academy student, however. He did have an abundance of natural talent, but seemed content to coast in middle ground. He was better known for being "Tenzan the Terrible", often bullying other students to vent aggression pent up from home. This, in turn, got him into loads of trouble on a regular basis. His graduation portfolio, compiled when he was 11, wasn't terrible, but it would have been a disappointment to his father--had he been alive to see it. All Tenzan was told was that he died on a mission in Kousai. With no one to care for his mother, he was sent to live with his grandparents instead.

Things almost seemed to get harder for Tenzan as a genin. As gifted as he was in the taijutsu arts, he failed the Chuunin exams--once in the written portion, and again in the field trials. Frustrated, angry, and otherwise beside himself, he did the only thing he knew how to do, throwing himself into his training with relentless vigor. By the time he was 12, he was so emotionally detached that even his own teammates often avoided him.

Another year passed, and Tenzan still wasn't any closer to his chuunin rank. His grandfather, a retired shinobi himself, decided to offer his grandson some insight in the form of a 'vacation'. He was gone for about eight months; when he came back, things were different. Shun's training was as much physical as it was psychological, and it forced Tenzan to take a deep, introspective look at himself. It wasn't something that he readily talked about upon his return, and the entire trip made him miss the chuunin exams held that year. His teammates ended up passing him by, but he didn't seem to mind, nor did he seem to be in any particular hurry.

His next chance came months before his 14th birthday, and though he only made it as far as the second round of the exam's tournament, he displayed a lot more maturity and judgment to make up for his lack of ninjutsu or genjutsu. His first fight went astoundingly quickly, but his second, against Sanada Sanshiro, lasted for nearly an hour. Even then, his promotion wasn't immediate. Though he was congratulated on his performance, he was instead assigned to teach physical education classes at the Academy for a year to assess his leadership skills. It certainly couldn't be said that he was the best teacher in the world, but he was surprisingly adept at commanding their attention, though he had to be reminded more than once about his language and was occasionally caught sleeping in empty classrooms when he wasn't supervising students.

Setting his sights on earning his Jounin rank, Tenzan continued teaching at the Academy in between missions. His ambition wasn't overbearing, but it was something of which he was always conscious... so when the conflict between Hidden Snow and Leaf began, Tenzan jumped at the chance to fight. The horrors of war and actually having to kill a few Snow shinobi didn't affect him as it might have some of his teammates.

Tenzan tries not to involve himself in the politics of organizations like Roots and ANBU; he tends to lump them all into one big pile of "elitist douchebaggery" as he puts it, that he figures is ultimately no good for Konoha as a whole. He tends to throw clans in that same category--and it has nothing to do with having been beaten up by Sanada Sanshiro.

...well, maybe a little bit.

Let's end the speculation, I'm talkin' to all of y'all
Males shouldn't be jealous, that's a female trait
What, you mad ‘cause you push dimes and he sell weight?
Y'all don't know my expenses, I gotta buy bigger plates
Hehehe, and more baggies — why you all aggie?
Homie, respect the game, that should be it
What you eat don't make me shit; where's the love?
