Default [Cloud Corporal] Maruyama Minoru

Maruyama Minoru
The Herald of the Black Star

Art by Witchynade

Age: 31
Sex: M
Height: 5'10

Character Type: Shinobi

Country/Village: Lightning Country/Hidden Cloud
Rank: Jounin - Corporal
Division: Intelligence - War Correspondent

Physical Description: Minoru is a little short compared to his fellow male ninja, and has a face and form that says he appreciates sweets far more than the ninja around him who keep in good shape. He still does enough work that he stays well toned, but a broad form runs in the family, as does the sweet tooth. His eyes are a deep brown bordering on black, soft enough that they can be disarming. His hair is usually kept high on top, with a fade along the sides that extends to the back. Age and stress have lead the occasional grey hair to pop up. He usually keeps his facial hair down to a small goatee, when he can help it.

Clothing: Breaking from protocol, Minoru wears long sleeved long shirts that go down so far that they cover his hands if his arms are limp. This Ao Dai is a tradition he carries over from his wife's family. Many of them are rather well decorated, and carry his personal symbol, the 7 point star. He has a selection of Ao Dai that have the symbols of the LMG sewn into the arm, with all his other required identification, but other times he will just wear an LMG vest if the work is going to get that dangerous. He wears half-rimmed black glasses, and keeps his hitae-ate on his forehead. The face paint he wears is an old family tradition he recovered from generations ago, and is always white. He often carries a massive scroll case on his back.

Personality: Minoru has been called both full of himself, and too friendly for his own good. It is a strange sort of confidence, born from years and years of trying to please people with no idea if they want to have anything to do with you. He is known to over explain to fill dead air in conversations, and to have trouble saying no to simple requests. That said, he is rather determined to succeed. He doesn't have the same physical strength as some of his allies, but he will put in the extra work to make sure that he gets the recognition he deserves.

Stats, jutsu, word counts look fine. I'm not even going to pretend to be knowledgeable about Cloud enough to know if you hit everything you needed, but I appreciate the non-standard bio format.

I swear when I looked before he had 9 AP in techniques, but I must have been caught in some genjutsu--

I expect he'll grow quickly!



AP: 56
