Default Kisaragi Yanro [Rain]

Name: Kisaragi Yanro
Age: 16
Height: 5' 8"
Weight: 140 lbs.

Character Type: Shinobi

Country/Village: Hidden Rain
Rank: Chuunin
Division: N/A

Physical Description
: Yanro isn't the most physically imposing person in the world, by any stretch of the imagination; many people tend to write him off based on his height alone. Nevertheless, he has a deceptively solid build, and tends to move like a silent predator wherever he goes. Brown hair and dark brown eyes make him look almost unassuming and typical. He usually has an uninterested, sleepy gaze, and he's surprisingly alert despite the disinterest his expression suggests he has in everything around him.

For someone so young, Yanro possesses a lot of scars, stitches, and errant marks of varying origin. Covering most of the scars, remarkably well, are two long dragon tattoos. Both cover his forearms, ending at the right side of his chest and his left shoulder blade. They strike a somewhat strange contrast against his skin--a little on the pale side, but Yanro hardly looks sickly.

Clothing: Yanro's clothes are very loose, often to the point where many wonder how he moves as quickly and efficiently as he does without losing them. Usually he wears a black hakama, the dark blue shinobi sandals on his feet barely visible. The black, hooded robe covering his upper body hides his hitai-ate on his forehead and shades his eyes in away that makes one wonder how he sees anything, and the sleeves end several inches past the tips of his fingers. A black cloth mask completes it all, and with his gloves covering his hands, Yanro is almost completely covered from head to toe.

Personality: Yanro tries to conduct himself as a very professional, no-nonsense sort of shinobi. Constant teasing about his physical stature has led him to be a very introverted person, rarely socializing even within his own team. This fact has been a major roadblock in his ambition to rise in the Amegakure shinobi ranks--one of which he is fully aware, yet he only seems to withdraw further into his shell, exacerbating the problem. To this end, Yanro comes off as cold, calculating, and particularly vicious--though he has enough pride not to go overboard and sacrifice the lives of fellow shinobi.

The few people who have gotten Yanro to open up, even a little, have discovered him to be a very confident shinobi--hardly the shy wallflower most people make him out to be. His confidence often leads to a little bit of arrogance, especially in areas where he feels he is more knowledgable than others. Still, he's quick to point out mistakes, both others' as well as his own, and has an almost OCD-like attention to detail.

Despite his quiet nature, Yanro does have a temper--a long fuse, but with a world-shaking emotional powderkeg at its end. There's an underlying feral nature and savagery in almost everything he does, and it only grows worse when he's angry. As such, he actively tries to keep his emotions in check. Most people have never even seen him smile, although hints of vague amusement tend to surface every now and then. Betrayal seems to be one of his major dislikes, however; he rarely gives his trust to anyone, and disloyalty is met with the worst kind of retaliation Yanro can muster.

Biography: "Asano Kyo... Kitamura Haruka... ...hm? Kisaragi Yanro?"

The classroom was moderately quiet as the Rain jounin called roll, pausing at the last name announced. The young Academy student to whom the name belonged looked up, green eyes glaring in a tired, generally uninterested manner.


"...Kisaragi? So you must be Shoji's little brother, yeah?"


"Interesting... If you're anything like him, you won't have much trouble with this class, I guess. Moving on..."

Yanro frowned, feeling at least a dozen sets of eyes fall upon him. This was all too typical... something he was used to and quite tired of. Living in the shadow of his brother's so-called genius had made it difficult for Yanro to be anything but 'Shoji's little brother' or 'Shoji Jr.'... It was depressing and enraging all at the same time. The only saving grace was that Kisaragi Shoji never once rubbed Yanro's face in his status as a village prodigy...

Kisaragi Shoji was five when Yanro was born; the family as a whole was large and prominent as shinobi, but nothing stood out about them--perfect for a family who seemed to specialize in assassinations and stealth. Shoji had a penchant for it, and shared his knowledge with Yanro at every chance he could. Despite how he was perceived in the public, at home, he was just Yanro to Shoji... It really made the teasing and bullying bearable through Yanro's academy years.

As far as his immediately family, Yanro had little memory of his mother. It was considered a taboo subject in his home; he could tell Shoji pretended not to know, and asking his father brought, at best, a cold and distant silence. At one point during his Academy days, he pressed for answers by stealing family records that had been sealed away, managing to discover that his mother was from Water Country and had been cast out of the family. Before he could discover why, he was caught--his punishment was a rather severe one. Yanro never brought it up again.

Once he graduated, life as a genin was significantly easier--at least on the part of Yanro's social life. He rarely said much at all, even to the teammates with which he'd end up spending the next three years. It was around then that Yanro started to truly pull away from Shoji's image. They trained together often when Yanro wasn't on a mission with his team, and when Shoji's skill landed him a promotion to jounin, they saw even less of each other, apart from the occasional family gathering in Sector Three.

In an effort to stand out from his brother, though they shared and practiced similar sword styles and techniques, Yanro gradually grew into a more forward thinking shinobi, often rebelling against the decisions of his sensei and garnering a reputation for taking calculated risks. It landed him in a hospital bed more than once, and at 15, he even got an elaborate tattoo to make him stand out--a moot point considering that, in a real mission, very few ever actually saw him.

He'd performed nearly 100 missions with his team before the group as a whole were promoted to the chuunin rank; Yanro's leadership qualities had shone rather well when he'd been forced into the position through his last several missions, when their sensei had come down with flu-like symptoms in the middle of a mission, leaving the three genin to perform various stealth and information gathering tasks on their own. Yanro was left to do much of it by himself, being the most adept at that field among his team... Miraculously, he emerged from it mostly unscathed.

Bio is pretty short (and a little weak)... but we've talk about this character multiple times and I trust you enough to know that you'll be doing things to further along the character (whether you do it fast or slow is another thing entirely), but you've got your Approval from me.
