Name: Kokoro Nido
Age: 26
Gender: male
Height: 5'8
Weight: 140 pounds or 63.5 kg
Rank: T jounin
Faction of Origin: shinobi
Village: Konoha
Bloodline/Clan: none
Restricted Loan Technique: ascendant status stamina

Appearance: Nido is a tall brown haired man, who wears square black rimmed glasses. He tends to wear a stripe suit, with a sweater vest over the top and a thick lab coat, to keep his suit clean during any kind of messy activity, he also wears thick gloves that are navy blue on the inside, but a thick black on the outside, normally equipped with a coarse grip pad on the inside for easy climbing, and nice dress shoes.

History: Nido was born from a wealthy family, that was an off shoot of the current Daimyo's own lineage. Not prestigious in a military sense, the Kokoro family had never been note worthy to the ninja villages and as such Nido didn't receive standard Ninja training.

Nido's family is specifically is an offshoot of the Daimyo's main tree, his grandmother being the younger sister of the Daimyo's own grand father and the two grew up as close cousins, often spending time together sharing their dreams of politics and aristocracy. It was at this time that he developed dreams of unification and peace, as the two built box forts and ran around the Daimyo's private abode, however; some saw their friendship as innately dangerous and other officials arranged for Nido to attend a rich vocational school on the outskirts of the land of fire, where the forest meets the desert of the land of winds. It is here Nido studied governance in preparation for his future position in assisting with the Daimyo's governing of the land. In this new school Nido grew from a child into a young man of sixteen before he graduated and took his position of governor of a small town south of Konoha. A position that still kept him away from the Daimyo, but still promised to provide him with a happy existence in which in theory he would live an easy existence.

Unfortunately once he arrived this was not the case. No one is certain who pulled the strings to have Nido assigned to the village, but upon his arrival it turned out the village had been waiting for him. A relic of the ancient days when Orochimaru experimented with forbidden jutsu's, summonings, and even the dead; the village was possessed by the local spirit of destruction, who pulled them all into an occult like frenzy. It seemed news of Nido's innately high latent chakra network, had made their way to the head cultist and he was all to eager to sacrifice him as a offering to the spirit itself.

It was here that one of the enigmatic spirits of the contract appeared to Nido with a deal. No one in the village had the stamina to keep the spirits in this world for longer than an hour and while within that time the spirit could harness power from the collective to work its dark miracles, it knew that if Nido signed the contract Time would no longer be an issue. Appearing almost casually it made a simple offer, "sign the contract and survive the night, or be sacrificed to me and never see the peace you crave." The answer was obvious to Nido at the time and while he hadn't realized that once free the spirit would kill every person in the village, it was with this pact that he finally made steps in the ninja world.

Unconscious and documented as the only survivor, he awoke suffering symptoms of dangerously low chakra levels in Konohagakure hospital where he spend the next two months in rest and rehabilitation. Every day he seemed to be visited by new and unpleasant looking individuals, as he slowly learned and studied the full extent of his new contract. Unfortunately rumors began to spread as these visits continued and this news Troubled the newly placed Daimyo greatly. The idea that his once close friend was consorting with ominous individuals caused him great worry and eventually forced his hand. After Kumogakures liberation war the Daimyo decided he needed more of his own agents and trusted informants on the inside of the Land of Fire's military. Someone he could trust to always keep him in the loop and who would put peace before the strange conflicts of the ninja world. Someone who if they could not bring sense to the militarized world, could keep him informed of what is going on. Killing two birds with one stone, he ultimately decided upon Nido.

If these new strangers where going to continue to seemingly appear out of no where to consult with him then this felt like the perfect chance to convince his old friend to obtain some self defense training and help straighten him out of this new rut.

Nido now assigned to a military position spent the next ten years training to fill his new role. Academically he didn't seem to show much promise never excelling, but also never failing his exams much to the Daimyo's dismay; however, that all changed when Nido began to take up missions. He seemed to possess a shrewd diligence when selecting missions, almost as if he could deftly avoid taking missions that might tarnish his reputation, and every mission he took no matter what rank seemed to come back with a positive resolution. In the wake of his new found success the Daimyo personally encouraged the Hokage of the time to promote him above and beyond his experience and position, until he landed the position of Jounin Specialist or Tokubetsu jounin.

Spent Character Points: 7000
Active Character Points: 8000
Unspent Character Points: 0
Total Character Points: 8000

Special Abilities: (You may take an unusual or special ability that grants you some strange perk, but this must be balanced out by granting yourself an equally balanced flaw.)

SA 1: Superior tactics: free Nido's training as a supporting combatant with his partner summon allows them to work together when spotting and fighting opponents. This grants his partner a major advantage greater than his reflexes in tracking.

SA 2: Forever the Servant: free Once Nido chooses a partner summon, he starts every topic with them summoned, paying their summoning cost immediately. Additionally instead of going away he has to pay their summoning cost once again.

SA 3: Cursed by destruction: flaw 3 Despite his best efforts, when one of his summons is around a dubious aura surrounds Nido, that screams of violence and destruction. When focused upon his enemies the aura becomes akin to a knife to their throat, as a thick palpable feeling of certain death pervades the battle field until they are no longer enemies, one of them dies, or Nido's summoning's leave the topic.

SA 4: Flaw 4 Professionally attractive: Nido's handsome features stand out among the crowd giving off an aura of proffesionalism that is more attractive then the standard man.

SA 5: flaw 5 Beautiful, with an edge: Nido's attraction moves beyond merely dress up and fancy clothing, as he has obtained a cool look that bests those that possess only a single looks based SA.

SA 6: flaw 6 This isn't even his final form: Nido's base features are so great that even those with two attraction base SA's cannot compete with him.

SA 7: flaw 7 One upping Zach: Nido is so amazingly good looking that even chiseled gods pale in comparison to his looks. Having focused on the social aspects of village life over his ninja training for, so many years has given him the ability to be more attractive than those with those who have three or fewer Attractive SA's and further grants those with fewer attractive SA's than him, but more than zero attraction based SA's a major disadvantage to wisdom out of jealousy.

SA 8: The classic training: Flaw 8 Nido can perform hand seals one handed.

Flaws:

Flaw 3: although Nido can't focus his destructive aura on people he considers his allies, Nido's allies are not free of the destructive aura he releases and it makes those that see him more likely to believe he could turn around and metaphorically bite his allies hand at any time. Even those with absolute faith in him will still find it physically easier to believe he is a liar and fiend of some kind and an act of betrayal no matter how small causes feelings of affirmation about his "true" nature.


Flaw 4:The curse of Nobility. Shops charge Nido twice as much for their products.

Flaw 5: The flaw of fame. Due to his birth and nobility, it is 1 tier easier for people to recognize him using their wisdom score.

Flaw 6: Nido's violent aura nullifies a attraction based SA for each unique summons he has displayed in a topic for that topics duration, as each one seems to reinforce the feeling of danger in the air. (exiting and re-entering a topic resets the countdown)

Flaw 7: If for some reason all of Nido's Beauty SA's are nullified within a single topic then those who they are nullified for are forever immune to his Attraction SA's and actually might find him more unattractive and unlikable when they aren't nullified.

Flaw 8: Nido performs one handed hand seals at a tier lower than usual.

Might, Will, And Fate Points
  • Might:
  • Will: 1
  • Fate: 6
I think that is it.

Few problems on my end

Flaw 6: Pawn of Shabranigdo: If Nido can't pay the summoning tax for his partner summon due to lack of chakra then he dies, unless he spends a will point and forces his partner to leave.

This Flaw is on a Beauty SA, it's very awkward and fits your free SA instead.

~~~~~~~~~~

Flaw 7: If someone see's four of Nido's summons out simultaneously then they are forever immune to his Attraction SA's and actually might find him more unattractive and unlikable when they aren't nullified.

This Flaw also is problematic because it only works at Master Kuchiyose and never before it. This is due to summon slots, you can never have four out simultaneously due to this.

I realize flaw 6 is a bit irregular as a balance a beauty SA, but i didn't think it was quite enough to balance SA 2, but when paired with the other beauty SA's i presumed would be more than enough.

As for Flaw 7 It was just a stronger version of what I was originally going to suggest, which was

Flaw 7: If for some reason Nido has all of his beauty SA's nullified by an individual, then they will forever see him with one unattractive flaw instead.

This theoretically adds some way for others to nullify all four beauty SA's explicitly, but also can raise the impossibility of nullifying all of them if I take more beauty SA's later (which i most certainly will because i am competing with zach) But to make it more balanced I shall change it to within the same topic. That way while i can't have 4 out at once, if I am forced to summon and unsummon throughout the topic it is still possible for it to trigger.

While it is unlikely to occur when paired with Flaw 3 it is effectively 2 Flaw's that can permanently nullify 4 SA's, 2 of which are already paid for with 2 other flaws, both of which are arguably stronger than their paired SA's, because they fit a more broad spectrum of circumstances.

As for why a non beauty SA has a beauty related flaw, given the SA itself makes him seem untrustworthy to his allies it practically has its own built in flaw as well, so i figured i could make the aura do something less related to the SA's effect itself.

It should also be noted that other characters have unrelated flaw's to their beauty SA's an easy one would be Katsumasa who has 3 Beauty SA's but only 1 flaw based on his beauty.

P.S. I didn't originally assign flaws and SA's to each other, they where just kind of in a pool. The assignment is just for organizational purposes and what in my mind balances out what. Feel free to move around and reassign them if it makes it easier for your to approve.

I would also like to see a long history on this character, it's kinda short for a TJ.

I think your SAs are fine but people can correct me here if something is wrong.

I've looked over this a few times and I'm still concerned about Flaw 6. It's so situational that I don't know about it on my end. I'm more concerned because it doesn't have to happen in a topic if you only use one or two or three summons total. Meaning Flaw 7 does nothing. While you can say that you can do things a certain way through text, things don't always play out the same ICly. I feel like, while small, that flaw 7 is just an extension of flaw 6. Flaw 7 becomes so situational due to what it is matched up with becomes more likely to happen than it's SA. I'm very in the middle of approving this due to some mixed feelings on the SA/Flaws in some spots.

Before I even look over your application, I'd ask that you edit the original post to reflect your changes in subsequent posts. Otherwise, it becomes a bit of an eyesore. Thanks for your cooperation!

How do you mean I update the main post before every comment I make. Or is there a mess I am not seeing?

Generally speaking, we tend to not approve things that boost things by a tier, and you technically can't boost tracking, as it's not an attribute in our current system. You could, perhaps, boost your Reflexes/Coordination and note that it's for the purpose of tracking.
Quote:
SA 2: Forever the Servant: free Once Nido chooses a partner summon, he starts every topic with them summoned, paying their summoning cost immediately. Additionally instead of going away he has to pay their summoning cost once again.
I don't exactly see anything wrong with this, but it confuses me as to why you'd put a flaw in your free SA.

So it's Sakki, but like.... not. Sure.

SA's 4 and 5 are just attractive SA's, so cool I guess.
Quote:

Sure.

This is so niche and situational, but it has absolutely no mechanical benefit outside of social topics, so sure.

Your flaws are fine, too, I guess.


Go get 'em, tiger.
