PostSubject: Yamanaka, Katsu. [Konoha Genin] Mon 14 Jul 2014, 8:19 pm


(That face with curly hair and blue eyes)

Yamanaka, Katsu.

THE INFO.

Name: Katsu Yamanaka
Nickname: Cut
Age: 17
Gender: Male
Appearance:
A youthful, boyish face, with the easily identifiable blond hair and blue eyes of the Yamanaka clan, gives Katsu an innocent and pleasant look about him. His eyes have an almost quizzical, curious look to them, that give off an impression that he is always lost in his thoughts, somewhat detached from the world. His hair is very tightly curled, and never stays straight no matter how hard he tries. The only blemish on his youthful face is a distinct, narrow, scar, running vertically down his forehead, a result of a childhood incident and the source of his nickname.

Katsu's skin is fair, partially tanned, and in no way particularly striking.
Katsu is usually seen with an pleasant, optimistic, yet somewhat detached expression on his face, and tends to make good impressions on those who cross his path.

Katsu stands at 6'1" and weighs around 150 pounds, tall and lean, partially muscular, and maintained in a confident, upright posture.
Be it his traditional village uniform, or whatever form of casual wear he takes a liking to, Katsu will always wears a dark purple jacket with a hood in addition to his clothes, a homage to his clan. Aside from this, Katsu will tend to wear simple jeans and a t-shirt when possible.

Forehead Protector:
If Katsu is with strangers and minor acquaintances, he will wear his forehead protector so as to hide the distinct scar on his forehead. If he is with close friends he will simply allow it to drop and hang around his neck.

Personality:
On the surface Katsu is at once brave, charming, confident, optimistic, and friendly, all the qualities you might find in your typical hero. Katsu approaches social interactions with enthusiasm, and always reinforces a moral high ground. He is friendly and conversational to anyone he meets and tries his best to make good impressions and loyal friends wherever he goes. He acts as an anchor his friends may lean upon, is entirely selfless, and encourages everyone even in the bleakest of moments. Of course he may take on a mocking or cynical approach on a situation when appropriate, but will always support his friends when they need it.

This is all, in fact, a well maintained façade, a front that Katsu puts on to ensure the trust and loyalty of those he considers valuable to his goals. Underneath his façade Katsu's personality is almost a polar opposite. A scheming, egocentric, megalomaniac who considers everyone he knows to be entirely beneath him and is willing to crush anyone necessary so as to reach his goals. He maintains a philosophy that all human actions are inevitably selfish, and that his views are extended upon a realization of that, therefore, he has no qualms on betraying those he is close to. Katsu is determined and perfectly ruthless, all his actions are based around the simple goal of gaining as much power as possible. Despite this almost psychotic personality, Katsu values the loyalty of his friends, despite viewing them as mere assets, and as such will usually seek to help them so as to insure this loyalty, only betraying his assets when absolutely necessary.

The only fault in Katsus ideal personality is that he often gets so absorbed in his façade that his core personality begins to come out of focus and fall apart, the effort of maintaining this complex dual personality causes his fake ideals to contaminate his real ideals. Katsu is, however, aware of this, and it is a source of much insecurity and uncertainty. Katsu is not strictly a power hungry, selfish, megalomaniac, as much as he tries to make himself be, and he often assumes this flaw will be the end of him.

Clan: Yamanaka
Nindō: "There is no such thing as a selfless act"

THE NINJA.

Origin: Hi No Kuni - The Fire Country
Affiliation: Konohagakure
Rank: C - Genin
Specialities: Ninjutsu - Eijutsu
Elemental Affinities: Doton (Earth) - Suiton (Water)
Combat Style:
The only value that Katsu has in combat is efficiency, other ninja may prefer flashy and powerful techniques meant to inspire awe in their comrades and strike fear into the heart of their enemies, let them. Katsu would prefer to leave the combat to someone else, but when necessary he prefers to kill or incapacitate his opponents through the simplest, most discreet ways possible, a trap there, a diversion there, and the quick stroke of a kunai across the throat of an un-watchful enemy. These methods often prove unceremonious, and would give off the wrong impression to his allies, so Katsu might perhaps, lead the enemy away and dispatch of them out of sight, or use a cleverly placed genjutsu to make it all look like an accident.

Should the need arise for Katsu to engage in a more involved form of combat, he utilises a combination of Suiton Ninjutsu and medical jutsu to debilitate and confuse his opponent, eventually attempting for more traditional, lethal, attacks.

While Katsu intelligently manipulates the battlefield and his opponent to gain the advantage, he still lacks any form of powerful offensive. As such a watchful opponent may be able to simply remain on the defensive and wait Katsu out, because of this Katsu will often try to maintain a close presence to team mates and support them accordingly. However this means that otherwise simple one on one combat can devolve into a lengthy and tiring game of wits for both Katsu and his opponent.

Special Characteristics:

Name: Advanced Stealth
Rank: C
Type: Physical
Physical Requirements: N/A
Training Requirements: A 600 word training post is required to gain this special characteristic.
Restriction: -
Description: A skill gained by ninja who have begun to specialize in the art of stealth. The ninja becomes very light and quick on their feet. Their movements no longer create sound and they now gain a natural skill for hiding and camouflage.

Name: Improved Perception
Rank: C

Physical Requirements: N/A
Training Requirements: A 600 word training post is required to gain this special characteristic.
Description: The ninja trains their skill in perception and analyzing their environment to more distinct levels. Most physical motions are identified and picked up by the ninja whether its a movement in a leaf or a change in temperature. This skill is handy when faced with Genjutsu as it allows the user to identify the fact they are in an illusion in less time and with less clues than one would otherwise need. However although they can sense the Genjutsu they must rely on other methods of breaking the spell. The ninja also becomes extremely perceptive and observant when it comes to people, being able to pick out mood changes or better understand character. In addition, this skill becomes useful in combat, where the Ninja grows to understand the patterns, habits and the 'rhythm' of the opponent over periods of time.

Like the obvious benefits of being very smart, the ninja is well regarded for their great mathematical and thinking abilities.

They can hustle Ryo quicker than one could imagine and can hold their own in times of struggle. Ninja with street smarts tend to have a heightened sense of intuition, honor, and fear in their respective communities.

THE BACKGROUND.

History:
Katsu was born to two very passive and uninvolved members of the Yamanaka clan, oddly enough, he was born in a triplet. Him and his brothers had a close bond in their early age, and were constantly pressured by their parents not to become ninja, but rather to live a peaceful, normal life. Katsu and his brothers seemed bound for the ideal life that their parents had envisioned for them, at some point or another they had all secretly wished to join the ninja, but had succumbed to the pleas of their parents.

At the age of 12 Katsu and his brothers fell victim to a rogue jonin ninja who had gone crazy and had begun to practice rituals and ceremonies of a forbidden cult, one particular ritual had required triplets. And so it came to be that while the three boys were playing in the streets far past their bedtime, they were ushered away by a seemingly friendly old man, and the young boys, too inexperienced to know what genjutsu was like, were drawn in by the kind old man's talking, and agreed to escort him home through the "unsafe streets". As Katsu arrived at the mans house, his brothers beside him, he was struck with both confusion and terror as all of a sudden the friendly old man was replaced with a sinister looking ninja wielding two blood-soaked kunai, and the limp corpses of his brothers collapsed besides him. The man giggled as Katsu was frozen in terror, "Trust is a fatal error" the man said simply as he picked up Katsu and brought him inside, into a basement, and laid him down on a table. Katsu fear dissolved into primal instinct as he desperately tried to think of some escape, his mind turning to the Kunai in his pocket, something he had found lying around and had kept for novelty more than anything else. The man took the two kunai he had, still soaked in the blood of Katsu's brothers, and used them to mark symbols on Katsu's forehead. Katsu slowly slipped his hand into his pocket and grasped the kunai, the man paused, and for a brief moment Katsu thought he had noticed. The man made a deep, vertical, cut down Katsu's forehead, Katsu gasped in pain. "Now now, I need you to hold still while I say a few words, ok?" Katsu nodded slightly, trying to maintain the impression that he was still frozen in fear. The man closed his eyes, Katsu's grasp on the kunai tightened as the man began to chant. Katsu waited for what seemed like an eternity, mustering up the courage to strike, and then quickly threw his fist upwards, as the man opened his eyes and in a single motion grabbed Katsu's fist. "I thought I could trust you to stay still" he said in a mocking tone, Katsu pulled the Kunai out of his pocket with his other hand, and with impossible might, violently slashed it across the man's throat. Katsu gasped and sat up as the man collapsed in a spray of blood, writhing on the ground untill his life slipped away. Katsu sat their for minutes, gasping for air, before standing up on uneasy feet and looking at the man he had killed. "A fatal error".

The mourning of his brothers and the constant questioning of the events that had befallen Katsu passed in a blur, eventually the noise around the event died down and life returned to some kind of normality, besides the ever grieving parents and the pitiful looks that Katsu would occasionally receive. While Katsu acted the part and eventually pretended it had never happened, the seed of paranoia and unease that was planted in Katsu's mind slowly grew and moulded him into a very different person. As his desire for power grew he saw that it would be necessary to practice the ways of a ninja, and so under the guise of wanting to be able to protect his friends from the same horror that had befallen him, Katsu convinced his parents to allow him a late entry into the Ninja academy. And Katsu's path was decided.

Roleplay Sample:

Vision came into a blurry focus as Ralph sat up, his head was pounding and his stomach was churning. His memory at first failed him as he tried to make sense of his surroundings, the water front at his feet, the night sky above him, half obstructed by a large, stone, bridge. But as he clumsily looked around him a shameful, half-grin spread across his face. A number of empty bottles of beer placed at varying positions around him offered at least some idea as to the events of the past few hours, but only some. Had he been out drinking with friends? He was almost certain that he had been, but where were they now? Why was he out in the first place? Ralph pulled out his phone, 2:12, fuck. At least his suburban surroundings offered some form of peace and comfort, but how would he get home? Ralph gazed up at the bridge, far, far, above, and noticed a distinct, human, figure, one precariously balancing on the wrong side of the rails.

A short, uphill sprint later and Ralph came into clear view of the figure, the road that spanned the bridge should be deserted at this time of night, and there was only one explanation Ralph could arrive at for the out of place woman that he could now see balancing on the edge of the bridge. "Please! Stop?" Ralph said uncertainly as he came to a rest next to the girl. "Don't jump? Please?" the woman maintained her position, unflinching, dark hair moving slightly in the breeze, Ralph hadn't even seen her face yet. What could cause her to do this? Ralph searched for some likely reason for why, some leverage he could use to talk her out of it. Did she have no friends? Was she unhappy with her life? Had she lost her job? her family? Ralph climbed over the rails as he considered these possibilities, and a chill ran down his spine as these problems struck an eerie resonance with Ralphs own emotions. A resonance that triggered a flood of unwelcome memories, Ralph was describing his own problems. And as his mind continued to come back into focus, the shadowy image of the woman dissapeared. Ralph was alone on the bridge.

And so as Ralph stood over the edge of the bridge, an unhealthy amount of alcohol still pumping through his blood and clouding his thoughts, a flood of despair and anger permeating his mind, his eyes turned to the shallow, churning river, far, far below him. The cold, biting wind was the only sensation Ralph could feel now. He could end this now couldn't he? all it needed was a single, weightless, step.

  • Please replace your Academy Jutsu list with the updated list from this link, seeing as there's a jutsu missing from yours.

  • Please add a [Konoha Genin] tag in the application's title.

  • Your Clan's Jutsu are based on Ninjutsu techniques, meaning you cannot use them unless one of your specialties is Ninjutsu. Either replace one of your specialties with Ninjutsu, or remove your clan's jutsu from your application. I suggest you go for the former, seeing as Clan Jutsu certainly hold more value than other generic techniques.
