Default [Stone Genin] Hashimoto Koshiro

Name: Hashimoto Koshiro
Age: 13
Sex: Male
Height: 5'6

Character Type: Shinobi

Country/Village: Land of Earth/Hidden Stone Village
Rank: Genin
Division: IWA – Culture Specialist



Physical Description:Koshiro carries himself with confidence, his goal firmly in mind at all times. He knows that his confidence is contagious. He knows that same applies to smiles, so he keeps a winning one at the ready. His green eyes are kind and thoughtful, but they can adopt a cold edge if he isn’t careful. He keeps his shock of brown hair just so, framing his face when it isn’t framing his headband (which he always wears).

He’s an early bloomer, beginning to show signs of adulthood, but he’s a bit on the lanky side as a result. Though one likely wouldn’t notice on the first look, the second one would plainly note the tension he carries in the set of his jaw or his shoulders. Koshiro is constantly aware of who might be seeing him at any given time and how he might be perceived. He does what he can to appear relaxed, but he has not yet learned to hide his intensity.

Clothing: Koshiro wears different clothing depending on the situation and who he’ll be dealing with at the time. Sometimes it’s better to appear as a shinobi, others it’s better to dress more like a civilian. He judges his audience carefully before he chooses his wardrobe.

When it’s best to look like the shinobi that he is, he gets as close as he can to the official uniform of the Stone ninjas. He wears the baggy red shirt with the sleeves rolled up and cuffed at the elbows. He wears a brown bandolier across his chest and a black sash as a belt. Baggy red pants feed into long, black shinobi sandals.

When it’s better to appear as a civilian, he wears clothing depending on where he’d be. By mirroring the wardrobe of a coal miner or a smith, he sends a message: I’m just like you. By default, he wears a light, brown jacket over a black shirt with red pants. Instead of feeding the pants into his sandals, he wears them over.

Personality: : Koshiro’s father taught him to be kind to everyone, and it’s a lesson he always valued. He does his best to be polite to everyone he meets. He has a very instructional nature and enjoys helping people understand things. He has an undeniable charisma; people like him and want to be liked by him. He’s thoughtful, listening more than he talks and taking his time to formulate a response before he speaks.

Those that knew him before his father’s death now notice an intensity to him. Before, he very much went with the flow. Now, it’s clear he has a plan in mind and any deviation from it is met with frustration. That’s not to say he’s inflexible or unable to adapt on the fly. On the contrary, he’s capable of formulating multiple plans and contingencies and preparing accordingly. He just likes to be in control of the situation, and he can become short if that control is compromised.

Not quite narcissism or even insecurity, Koshiro is always very aware of himself. How he looks, what he sounds like, etc. All of him is a message, and he’s very careful about the message he’s sending. So much of how he presents himself is carefully crafted, and when something unexpected happens he has a hard time maintaining the easy-going charisma he’d like to present.

Underneath all of that lurks a resentment that he isn’t quite aware of. In his mind, shinobi and non-shinobi are firmly separated. Even as he tries to win people over, he’s disgusted by them. These are the people that killed his father with their ignorance and their hate. Even as he spins honeyed words, poison drips in his soul. He dreams of shaping the people into what he believes they should be, but until that happens, they are “the Other.”

Nindo; "Way of the Ninja": “I will win the hearts and minds of the Land of Earth, whether they like it or not.”

Clan/Bloodline: None

Morale Officer
Archetypes: Genjutsu Specialist – Tactician

Biography: Koshiro never knew his mother. She died giving birth to him. He was raised by his father, a chuunin of the Hidden Stone Village. He was never known as a particularly accomplished shinobi, but he was well-liked by all he encountered and widely regarded as a good man. Everywhere Koshiro went, people knew his father and held him in high regard and they were quick to tell Koshiro as much. Korshiro held more pride in that than he would have if his father was the Tsuchikage himself.

Koshiro himself studied at the academy, of course. He got along well with his classmates, and he was known to be just as kind-hearted as his father. He excelled in his schoolwork and his instructors regarded him highly. Koshiro was quite good at explaining things in simple terms that even his struggling classmates could understand, and he was pegged early on as a candidate to teach future generations of students at the academy.

Koshiro himself wasn’t sure WHAT he wanted to do. His father used metal style ninjutsu but genjutsu was a better fit for Koshiro’s sharp mind, though he was passable at all aspects of being shinobi. He didn’t mind the idea of being an instructor at the academy, but neither was it calling of his. He figured that as he continued he’d eventually find something he wanted to do.

When the Jondori Earthquake struck, Koshiro’s father was among the shinobi sent in for rescue efforts. They were largely too late, but Koshiro’s father rescued as many as he could during the aftershocks. Some of his fellow shinobi still tell stories of him going back time after time, caked with blood and soot and dirt, pulling as many people as he could out of the rubble. He never liked to speak of it, but Koshiro can remember the night when his father returned. Still covered in debris, he came into Koshrio’s room and wordlessly hugged him tight for a long time.

Within weeks, the climate in the Land of Earth intensified. The people were saying that Iwa didn’t do enough to help after the earthquake or, even worse, that they had caused it in the first place. These rumors troubled Koshiro’s father greatly. He became a shinobi to protect them, after all. How could they believe such things? Though troubled, Koshiro’s father assured his son that the people would come around. He just needed to have patience while they worked through their grief.

Koshiro’s father was killed when he was caught in a riot while returning from a mission. Bystanders say that he alone had attempted to quell the crowd, and even as they assaulted him he would not harm them. Even during this tumultuous time, the funeral drew quite the crowd. Anyone that Koshiro’s father had interacted with and made an impact on showed up, and they all shared stories of his kindness and his dedication to the people of Earth. Koshiro played the role of the mourning son perfectly, greeting each and every one of them and thanking them for coming. When they were all gone, he was left alone with his grief.

After the death of his father, Koshiro wasn’t sure he wanted to be a shinobi anymore. He had believed, as his father had, that they were there to protect the people of the Land of Earth. But his father was dead now, and as far as Koshiro was concerned his belief had died with him. Why should he risk his life to defend the very people that would kill him if given the chance? His father was the greatest man he’d ever known. The people who killed him didn’t deserve protection.

Then the People’s Defense Coalition came to be. Stoking the flames of resentment, they rose up to personify the tension between the shinobi and the people of the Land of Earth. They also gave Koshiro an enemy to represent his father’s killers. He became a genin and joined the Instruction and World Affairs division as a Culture Specialist. In that role, he would be able to sculpt the people of the Earth into the kind of people that deserved Iwa’s protection. Whether they liked it or not.

You’re missing a “– 8” by your chakra block if you’re going for cohesion. Otherwise stats check out.

Put your archetype special next to your primary, that way we know if you’re taking a combo archetype or just a primary and secondary.

Also (this doesn’t need to be fixed), this line carries a lot of weight in the bio. Good job, I was upset when you killed his dad because of this lol.

I’ll be back when you make the edits!

Hey Wess, thanks for the edits! Should be all set now. The plan is to move into Morale Officer at some point, but for now he's not the leader I want him to grow into.

I'm really glad you liked that part! I reworded that sentence a couple of times before I was happy with it so it's awesome that it had that impact for you.

Ready and waiting for more!

The first new Stone Baby of my reign n_x is exciting.

Really well done, by the way. Everything's clear, the backstory reflects world events, there's emotional connection, an unexpected turn toward a dark path.. Love it.


But, sadly, under the current system you can't do what I think you are suggesting, and fuse the separate archetypes into the combo archetype later. If he's gonna eventually have the powers of a Morale officer, he needs to be classed into it from the start. Having the archetype doesn't mean he needs to already be a commanding presence IC though, that can still be something he learns, so you don't need to change that part of the plan.

So, if you can just fix that one thing, and make him be using the combo from the start, if that's what he's going to be growing into, then I think this will be ready to start collecting approvals n_x

Hey Bass, thanks for the feedback! Glad to hear you like what you see, I think our boy will do you proud.

A bummer about the archetype, but I get it. I was also thinking I'd get more use out of the genjutsu specialist special first and eventually move over but I understand. Morale Officer fits the character better, and is what I had in mind while writing him, so there's no question.

The edit has been made! Let me know if anything else has to happen.
