Default Leaf Genin - Sanae Tousei

Name: Sanae Tousei
Age: 12
Sex: Male
Height: 5’0”

Character Type: Shinobi

Country/Village: Hi no Kuni/Konohagakure
Rank: Advanced Genin
Division: Omoi

Appearance: Sanae Tousei can be summed up in one word: “average.” Tousei isn’t very tall, but he’s not very short for his age either. There’s room for him to grow but he’s just starting to grow into his body. Tousei isn’t physically imposing, he looks kind of thin but his body hides strength from the taijutsu training he does. He has dark, unruly brown hair that he either doesn’t care to tame or he just lets run amok out of choice. Beneath his bangs you can find his light brown eyes that’s just barely a shade lighter than his hair. He has fair skin with few blemishes and no real scars worth showing yet.

Tousei’s clothing follows the same life style that he was born and raised into, don’t stand out. He wears dark pants and a gray shirt. The shirt is form fitting like something you would wear while working out. Depending on the weather it can vary from long sleeved to short sleeved but the fit is always the same. The reason for the tight shirt is because he wraps his Hankyuu around his torso. Tousei usually wears a slight off-black hoodie that looks like a dark shade of charcoal gray with a zipper up the front. This way he can just tear the jacket off to reveal the Hankyuu should he need to let his Garyuu fly. Speaking of the Garyuu, he keeps the darts in assorted pockets and holsters attached to his person. His shinobi sandals are black to complete his depressing ensemble. When it’s an option he chooses to not actively wear his hitai-ate. Showing off his shinobi status can draw undue attention to himself so he only wears it when he absolutely has to.

Personality: Tousei is a product of the environment he was raised in, and like most sons he adored his father. As such he learned everything he possibly could from his dad Sanae Sanetomo, which basically means that Sanae Tousei is something of a liar. On the outside, Tousei is a middle-of-the-pack shinobi with no real special talent. He’s respectful, well mannered, quiet, and reliable to a point. He’s everything that could make him a good student and pupil, except he is a terrible teammate. He’s not the most talkative, and when he does speak its short and to the point. He offers help and gives advice but most of the time it’s probably not the best idea to take it because it’s just not very good. He can come off as lazy because it doesn’t seem like he really puts all of his effort into things as his peers would, but Tousei just prefers to stand in the shadow of his teammates. Let them be the leaders. That way if they succeed he can be part of the success, if they fail then it’s that other guy or girl’s fault.

The reason for this can all be traced back to his father. You see, Tousei’s dad wasn’t the best kind of person. He took things that didn’t belong to him and didn’t really give his son the best education morally speaking. He taught him everything he could, as most fathers do, but that meant that Tousei learned how to curse, pick pocket, find easy marks, etc. Anything that could help him relieve someone of their worldly possessions was taught to Tousei. Doing that brings problems though. So Tousei learned how to not stand out so no one would remember him, he learned to be ready to run at the first drop of danger, and he learned how to keep secrets.

Biography: Sanae Tousei was born to Sanae Sanetomo and Sanae Yuri. His mother owned a well known cafe, a little place that everyone thought was cute and served great food. It had a good reputation and was always busy with the right kind of clientele. Tousei’s father on the other hand was a little more unsavory than his mother. When Tousei was young he had once asked his father what he did for a living, and his father had told his son: “I procure items from people more fortunate than us so we can be almost as fortunate as them.”

Tousei was young at the time so after a few minutes of thinking he finally managed to accuse his father of being a thief. His father gave Tousei a serious look that night and said, “I’m not a thief, son. Beggars pick pocketing are thieves, swindlers and their street games are thieves. Those guys are just like brats your age playing with finger paint. Me? I’m a fuckin’ artist.”

His father must have seen the confused look on his son’s face because from then on he would take his son out for the “performances” he put on. He thought of himself as an actor and artist, too good to be lumped in with the common criminal. Tousei hated it at first, but then his dad taught him how to pick a pocket. Tousei was nervous when he did it first, but he was a natural. And he reveled in the adrenaline that poured through him afterwards. And so Tousei’s unusual education began.

Sanae Tousei learned the tools of the trade from his dad. He could pick a lock with rudimentary tools, he learned how to be a look out, and how to pick even the most well guarded pockets. His crowning moment was lifting a money pouch off an actual city guard. More than that he learned how to play all the roles he needed to play for his dad’s performances. He could make people believe that he was actually sick, and at times he could actually make himself throw up with a little help. Sanetomo taught his son everything he knew and together they made enough to live. “Enough to live” doesn’t sound like much, but that depended on the circumstances.

The Sanae family lived on the second level of Himoto, the city where crime didn’t exist. And it was here that Sanae Sanetomo taught his son not only how to steal, but how to do it without people realizing they were being robbed. He really was an artist. He stole from the first three levels freely but there were places he didn’t dare to touch. First of all was shinobi. He didn’t trust them, didn’t understand them, and stayed away. The others were the top two tiers of the city. The main reason for this was because a lot of the people there could hire shinobi, and no one had dared to pay him enough for him to try. So one night, when he took Tousei with him to inquire about jobs at a bar, someone was offering a lot of money to go into the fourth tier and Sanetomo suddenly felt inclined to listen.

Sanetomo sat Tousei down at a table near the booth and started his usual process of listening to the job, asking for details, and negotiating. Tousei watched the animated movements of his father’s hands while the two men he was speaking with sat quietly across the booth. His father laughed and they all took a drink. Then the other two men started talking while Tousei’s dad listened intently. This was the part that Tousei didn’t have to pay too much attention too. He stared off into space and watched the bartender clean his bar. Suddenly there was a loud slam and Sanetomo was standing up and glaring at the two men. “I might be a fuckin’ thief but I’m not a traitor!”

The two men made hushed comments at Sanetomo but their meaning wasn’t lost on Tousei or his father. Sanetomo said he would think about it and then got out of the booth and motioned for Tousei to follow him. Tousei did as he was told and slipped. His dad caught him and they both looked at what Tousei had tripped on. A layer of ice had formed under Tousei’s chair and had run up the legs where he was just sitting. Sanetomo looked at the two men and saw one smiling. His dad picked Tousei up in a hurry and was out of the door seconds later.

The two of them arrived home only to have Sanetomo pull their emergency bags out of their closet. Sanetomo had told his son that they should always be ready to run and had shown him the bags for their escape before. Yuri asked what happened but Sanetomo only said two words to her: “Snow men.” They left that very same night. They went down one of their exit routes that had been practiced before. Halfway through it though they changed directions on a new path, one he hadn’t shown his son before. An hour later they boarded a train set for Konoha.

They moved into a medium sized house that was just a little too big for their family a few weeks after arriving. Those first few weeks were spent in a hotel while Tousei’s dad managed to get their money. The house was nice and soon enough they were looking for jobs. Yuri started working at a café again while Sanetomo started consulting for security purposes. In his free time he still managed to work on Tousei’s unusual skill set, but now that they were in Konoha they were less prevalent. Now they were in the heart of the people that Sanetomo trusted least. The only good thing that he saw out of it was that he could get Tousei extra training. Soon after they arrived Tousei was set up with a weapon master.

The master went through every weapon in his arsenal until Tousei was found proficient at one. After a few minutes with each it was decided that Tousei had talent in archery. Upon hearing this, Sanetomo requested a different weapon. It was then that Tousei was introduced to the Hankyuu. When Tousei asked his dad why he had to use a giant rubber band instead of a bow, Sanetomo had said, “Well you can’t hide a bow on your body, can you?”

Tousei started training with his new teacher every day, and it was with that teacher that he discovered his talent for molding chakra. Tousei’s first thought was complete horror. His dad hated shinobi, there was no way he would let his son become a ninja. He thought he was going to be thrown out of the house. Instead his dad embraced the idea. He pulled him aside one night and told him how proud he was. His son was going to surpass him; he was going to learn the shinobi tricks. Tousei was going to be the best.

The young boy spent the next four and half years of his life learning how to be a shinobi, and spent his spare time either training with the Hankyuu or learning from his father. His dad hadn’t dared to try and con anyone in Konoha, not with so many ninja around that could toy with his mind, but he seemed excited to share his wisdom with his son. The days went by normally for years, even when the ANBU left and power shifted. Sanetomo had told his son that it didn’t matter who ran the village. It was just business as usual. Tousei didn’t agree. He saw how things changed by looking at his classmates’ parents. It was like watching hope die in their eyes. But he struggled through and lived every day just as his father had told him to, business as usual.

Then everything changed when the monsters attacked. It was just a few months before he was set to graduate. They came suddenly and tore everyone’s lives apart. Tousei escaped from his instructors at the academy and raced home. He doesn’t remember how he got there unscathed, just that he arrived to a door ripped from its hinges. Lying on the ground in a pool of blood nearby lay a creature’s body. Tousei’s mom was sitting down with her body leaning against a wall. Blood poured down her left side and her leg looked mangled. He rushed to her side and tried to shove the medic out of the way. Strong arms grabbed him from behind and pulled him aside as his mother grew paler and paler. There was a roar nearby and a mass of muscle smashed into them. Tousei’s head hit the ground, his vision blurred, and he blacked out.

He woke the next day listening to the steady beep of a machine next to him. He tried to move but his body ached whenever he tried. He opened his eyes and saw his dad sleeping in a chair across the room. He looked to his right and saw nurses and doctors walking in the hallway, as well as a machine pumping who knows what into his arm. There was a sharp breath next to him and Tousei slowly turned to see where it had come from. Next to him on another bed in the room was his mother. She was breathing steadily, but it looked labored. She had more machines hooked up to her than Tousei did but she was breathing. She was alive.

A few months later Tousei was out of the hospital and standing in line on a stage at the Academy. He looked out into the crowd and saw his dad smiling up at him. Next to him looking a little skinnier was Sanae Yuri. Not as vibrant as before, but that didn’t matter to Tousei. All that mattered was that she was alive. Tousei graduated in the middle of his class, as planned, but now things were different. Both his parents had jobs before, now it was just his dad. His mom was still recovering from her injuries and just like the rest of Konoha.

They had lost a bit of money trying to fix the house that was damaged and pay off the hospital bills. Instead of two steady incomes, they had to rely on Sanetomo’s consulting pay which wasn’t exactly reliable. Tousei’s father had started to retreat into private, personal outings more now that he was faced with the concept of having to settle down into a normal job. He didn’t come home drunk and didn’t show the usual signs of someone who had been to adult clubs, it just looked like he had been walking. So Tousei was going to have to really dive into his life as a Genin. His family needed his job, they needed the money, and Tousei was going to provide. One way or another.

Other Info:
-Tousei is a very good pick pocket. He learned when he was young and has only gotten better with each passing day. Tousei doesn’t actively pick pocket people anymore, he just does it for practice. He’ll lift their purse or wallet and then return what he stole under the guise that they dropped it, sometimes he’ll put it back without them noticing just to prove to himself that he still can.
-He can also pick locks, provided he has something thin enough that he can fit inside the locks. It’s not always the quickest process but give him enough time and he can get through almost any lock. Advanced locks require actual lock picking tools, which he does happen to carry.
-His father kept Tousei’s lessons going up until he had graduated from the Academy. He learned different formalities, how to dance, cook, build an identity, coded language, how to communicate with hand signals, and how to properly act out a role. The hand signals are not sign language, they’re more like movements made with the hands that mean certain things. Think of it like baseball signals.
-Has two friends from his days at the Academy that he still spends time with when he’s not trying to make money. They are also on a Genin Team together but no Jounin has been assigned to them as of yet. Their names are Michi Harumi and Hideyasu Mastaka
-He keeps his past a secret. No one knows that his dad is a thief/conman or that two men from Snow approached Sanetomo. Tousei still doesn’t know what they wanted from his dad to this day. He just assumes they wanted him to steal something.

Edited this character because shiraha wanted to be special. Here's what I did:

1.) Changed my character from a Genin to Advanced Genin.
2.) Fixed a typo I found in his personality.
3.) Added his 12 extra points, 11 into stats and 1 into a technique. These points are denoted with AG, except for the technique which has **AG**.
4.) Replaced "Weapon Concealment" from Those Lacking Opacity with "Sabotage".
Quote:
a.) 2 pts into Speed
b.) 2 into Stamina
c.) 2 into Power
d.) 2 into Control
e.) 3 into Reserves
f.) Added "Perfect Imitation" from TLO.

Hm. Alright. I'm assuming that those are the only changes you made and taking your word on that. The changes, though, seem to add up. Reapproved.
