Default Shinshi Tsuneo - KISEO

Name: Shinshi Tsuneo
Age: 18
Sex: Male
Height: 5"11

Character Type: Shinobi

Country/Village: Kusagakure, Kusa no Kuni
Rank: Advanced Chuunin
Division: KISEO - Officer First Class

Physical Description:

Despite reaching the end of puberty, Tsuneo's face looks a few years younger. His skin being dark is a matter of genetics, his father being not of the clan. Thus his family is an oddity in the Shinshi clan, but most have come to generally accept it. Among the dominant majority of redheads, Tsuneo looks almost as if completely the opposite and many question whether or not his true heritage lies with the Shinshi. Many friends of his have even encouraged him to abandon his Shinshi blood to avoid any discrimination. For the most part many who do not know him well do not know that he is a Shinshi. His hair is almost always shaved, and is always clean-shaven. Tsuneo has the average strength of a ninja, but prefers to go by the jutsu way of things. He gives off an aura that draws people to him, and people often enjoy his company. Tsuneo also has three white striped tattoos on his arm, as well as one black one. He's pretty much your favorite teenage boy.

Clothing:

Tsuneo has good fashion sense. Often wearing things people can envy in it's uniqueness, and can sometimes set trends among his peers, Tsuneo has taste. Wearing things both stylish and suitable for the situation, Tsuneo needs almost no help in choosing his attire. Among his wardrobe can be hoodies, jackets, simple t-shirts, jeans, and many others. However, what he particular hates and will never wear is a tank top. It is just one of his pet peeves. Hitai-ates? He ties 'em around his arm.

Personality:

Tsuneo is a guy who loves to be lively and have fun. Having great people skills, Tsuneo has a great inter-personality. He also loves to be the center of attention. He tends to be over-indulgent with people as well, but people wouldn't dare take that to their advantage. He avoids looking at the long-term consequences of actions and is typically optimistic, being upbeat and enthusiastic. Being traumatized at an early age at the hatred towards his clan, Tsuneo hides the clan side and instead makes it better by making himself popular. Through this, he is widely known among those his age as the most popular guy in school. Tsuneo is a master at improvisation, and tends to procrastinate. A party animal, many say that he is always the life of the party. The spirit of the team, the mascot of the class. He likes variety, the plain and repetitive are not his taste. He is one to quickly make strong connections with others, but should someone prove hostile, Tsuneo responds equally. Overall, he loves to have fun and is fun to be with, making him a widely likable guy.

Biography:

You wondering why my skin color's black? My father isn't a Shinshi, no, he was from some place else. Sunagakure maybe? I don't know. Anyway, the guy was homeless, looking for a home, when one day he sees this rundown house where people take him in. Turns out, this is the home of the Shinshi clan. So they feed him and take care of him and all that, but then he falls in love with a Shinshi girl. You know where that leads to? Marriage. Next thing you know it I'm born. Now you're probably wondering where they are today. My father? He disappeared some 14 years ago, without a word. Now, I know what you're thinking, what a faggot.

I received a black stripe the day he left without a word and never came back, just like him, just like me. He was presumed dead, and no one missed him. Many speculated he was a con, attempting to steal the Hen'iki. And so at one point many Shinshi clan members were suspicious of me as well. Life as a Shinshi was hard, but on the other hand I knew no other life. Whether being bullied or waking up to my windows being broken, I endured all the pain as if it were an unwelcome companion, and eventually it all became normal. But that was exactly what I was afraid of, so I decided in my childhood that I wouldn't let this hole devour my life. Many of my cousins also had similar ideas, some were determined to save our family reputation. If there was one thing we all shared it was how strong it made us, how tough we had become at such a young age. But you know what? It wasn't worth it. We have each been ridden of our childhood, something no person should have to endure. This is why it isn't a good idea to mess with the Shinshi clan.

Let's talk about our Matriarch for a sec here. The woman is one whom I personally respect, one whom personally came to me and apologized for the loss of my father. I often visited here for guidance, things I could not always get, but the set occasions I did were both memorable and pivotable even in my life today. As the only black Shinshi, even within the clan I was questioned as a true member, and Mao showed me light, she showed me I was worth it. Yes, she had a temper. And yes, everyone was afraid of it. But she is also a wise and caring Matriarch for the Shinshi clan and I would like to personally thank her for that. And in exchange for being branded a public enemy twenty-four seven, the Shinshi gave me knowledge. I learned that this knowledge is a rare knowledge, knowledge many had envied and tried to steal in the past. So I told myself that such a gift would not go to waste. And it didn't. We were schooled in physics, mathematics, astronomic related material, and the Hen'iki Secret Art. So I studied hard, knowing that someday it would become of use to me and that I was not going to waste it. I was a master of trigonometry, I could calculate distances at a moment's glance or the exact path of a projectile. I learned the chaos theory and game theory, as well as applied myself to use the theories in prediction. I was a beginner, but it opened up a whole new world of understanding, knowledge, and foresight that I still encounter and learn from today.

At age 8, I joined the Academy. Why? I had figured out what I needed to do. Being an engineer cooped up in some place is not the life I wanted, and being a shinobi, facing danger at every turn, that was the life I wanted. I planned to use my education to my advantage. I wasn't the only one, and it was obvious my clan, though I could feel some hate, passed down from fathers and mothers, about the death of a daimyo that everyone believed stemmed from my clan. I had learned why we were dishonored. They taught me about how they scorned us because they believed that Gorou had been killed by Nori, but after delving into the known details, it appeared that they had actually no proof that Gorou was killed by Nori. It was almost sad that all this hate could be generated from a single lie. Some would shrivel from all of the pressure, others would attempt to fight it, but instead I began going about changing their opinions. I developed a personality that everyone couldn't help but love. I made many friends, and before I knew it I was the most popular guy at school. We had fun at parties and such, and eventually we became closer, and those of my clan were partially saved. I say partially because, as I don't look like a Shinshi, it means I knew many people who had no idea of my heritage. Well, except for my class, where they were reminded every time roll call came.

Studies were easy. They weren't really studying after all. Most of it was actually teaching by example and then you just get the feel of it naturally. It was too easy for me, I wanted more on reasoning with the why this, when should you use this, or who should you use this on. Very quickly my teachers recognized my thirst for knowledge and that's exactly what they gave me. I eventually used the chaos theory and trigonometry the most, as they were very useful. Physics also came in handy, especially when things got into jutsu. And so I blew off the Academy easy, acing all my grades and passing the exam with flying colors.

As a genin? More interesting and slightly more challenging. I was beginning to see the points between the shinobi hierarchy, it was a system that was well-designed for master soldiers, assassins, diplomats and such. Suddenly, I understood why it was the Five Great Shinobi Villages on top. They had more shinobi. Being a less amount of us in Grass, however, as a genin I guessed that my training was most likely more rigorous and fruitful than a highly populated country. This was my advantage, and I continued to learn all I could. I expanded upon my knowledge equally, being overall a well-rounded person. There were many obstacles, some my fellow genin and jounin managed to eliminate, or in most cases, circumvent. I began using the Hen'iki more often, and my practice hours at the clan-house increased. I finally had a purpose, to be something of use, to use the gifts that had been given to me. It opened up my world, and it was a lot less gloomy then things were before. Now a shinobi of the village, the prejudice I was receiving for my clan lessened. But it never entirely left. I could see in my clansmen's faces that nothing had changed, I alone had moved up the system, despite still being the lowest ranking ninja. The Shinshi used to be powerful. The Shinshi used to be heroes.

By now I had two stripes on my arm, tattoos. One was white, I had graduated from the Academy, and I still had the black one, for the disappearance of my father. The black, not easily seen compared to my skin, was one that reminded me everyday why I also had to continue down this path of the shinobi. It reminded me that I would someday show my father that the Shinshi were not worth abandoning, that I was not worth abandoning.

What someone least expects is a tragic accident happen to the genins, yet it happens all the time. Maybe it's because we are the weakest, the smallest, the youngest. After all, a predator has the best chance catching baby prey rather than full-grown prey. However, the least thing expected is seeing the prey fight back. Viciously. No tragic accident occurred to me or my fellow genin, it was by design. From one moment we were heading for a nearby country to supplement a diplomatic venture, and then in the next our jounin was dead and a fellow genin was dead, while the last had disappeared. I was utterly alone. What had happened that night? I wasn't entirely sure at the time, but later I figured it out. It appears that one of my comrades had a misunderstanding. A big misunderstanding. Apparently, he was utterly convinced that our sensei had killed the boy's father. Enraged, as we set camp, the genin had killed the jounin himself, with the help of some lethal poison, and a surprise knife in the back. Why was this a misunderstanding? Our sensei had killed his father, but for a good and perfectly legal reason. The genin's father had left the village, becoming a missing-nin and on the run. At the time, our sensei was a hunter-nin so the fight was predestined. After a long fight, the genin's father attempted to escape, in which case our sensei had to kill him, as per village rules, to keep village secrets from reaching other lands. After poisoning our sensei, the genin escaped. There was obviously mixed emotions going through his mind. The other genin had found our sensei first and came after him to hunt him down and arrest him for treason. I was sound asleep in my tent. Only after waking up to find a dead jounin at my door and tracks into the woods did I realize something was wrong. I set out and tracked the two. I had reached my two fellow genin, one was dead the other was alive. The vengeful genin was pondering in solitude on what he had done. It was obviously a very bad thing, and I ambushed him, using the Hen'iki to subdue him and brought him back to Grass to be arrested. I personally sent two heartfelt letters to the other genin's family and the jounin's family. I may not have been able to help my family, but at the very least I could help others.

Not long after, I received my second white strip. I had been promoted to chuunin thanks to my actions, and my heroic deed in bringing the genin in after arrest as well as personally visiting the families of the dead. I was happy and honored. I found my second white tattoo as a consolation for my black stripe. As I continued doing missions, people began acknowledging my skills in the field. The Hen'iki is a powerful skill, but it was one that I rarely used. It caught people off guard, and it showed them that I am not powerful because of secret clan skills, but by being a resourceful shinobi. And it told people I was aware. One such example is when I was in a mission preventing bandits from invading a pivotal storage house, one that housed numerous national treasures. Many advanced immediately to the threat and lost sight of the objective, a flaw I had not shared. Staying behind to protect the storage house, I played the role of guardian, the one role no one else wanted to play. Many thieves had managed to get around my fellow shinobi in which case they were in for a shinobi surprise. I had saved the storage house and had managed to keep my team intact. Not long after my teammates were scolded, and me commended. As a reward I became an Officer 1st Class in the KISEO division and my third white stripe was tattooed.

All this talk about change has been going on lately. Kages rising up and this Shinku Seijun. I've heard word of a man only known as the Fukumen. Slowly I watched things begin to change. Next thing you know, the old Kage is gone, and a new one is on the high seat. The new guy seemed to have lots of things to change, some of which I know a lot of people would disagree with. But we don't get a chance to see, do we? Suddenly the Kyuukage is dead and the Fukumen is all over the news everywhere. The new Kage, or Daimyou, as some shinobi refuse to acknowledge him as their leader. It's history, it's politics. People are questioning what is going to happen with this new new guy. If you ask me, 'the Mask' is nothing but trouble. The dude's going to do some things that will not be in favor for us shinobi, and I know it.

Other Info:
Personal Goal: To outshine the Shinshi's shortcomings and carve a better image for his clansmen through example, and discreetly.
End Goal: To master The Hen'iki Secret Art.
• For the record of any misunderstanding, Kaen has given me permission to make a black Shinshi.

So, continuing on with my registry checks... I'll throw a Half on this. Good read and as someone thinking about making a Shinshi myself, I'm soooo glad that you chose to go in to actual physics and theories in the bio, and tied them in to the character <3
