Name: Tekokura Senju
Element(s): Wood, Water
Tekokura is unassuming in stature, Average height with shaggy dark hair.Clean shaven, his soft green eyes are hard to read, and appear kind, yet sly. Wears the usual shinobi sandals and pants with a shuriken pouch on leg, with an armored sage green vest as a top. His Konoha headband is tied around his right arm.
Calm and quiet. Fiercely loyal to those who become close to him. Somewhat gullible though. Sometimes struggles with indecisiveness. Deep down very friendly and lighthearted, but scared to get close to people out of fear of feeling like he can't protect them.
Story Thus Far:
Tekokura was born soon before a time of war in Konoha’s past. He grew up loving his village and the peaceful nature that surrounds it. More reclusive and opposed to conflict than other young ninja, Tekokura spent more time alone observing his peers than with them. This led him to spend a lot of time wandering the forests around Konoha alone.
Distancing himself is not a guarantee to avoid conflict, as Tekokura would soon learn. One day while climbing trees outside the village gate, he witnessed an attack on a couple Chunin who were patrolling for the village. Tekokura watched hidden from afar as the Konoha ninja fought bravely, sacrificing himself for the other. Ultimately both were struck down by the foreign shinobi. That was the turning point, Tekokura eventually joined the academy to begin his shinobi training knowing he could not sit on the sides any longer, inspired by the brave ninja he saw fall.
Discovering he had strong control over his chakra and natural talent as a ninja, he graduated the academy as well as becoming a Chunin at a young age.
Doing his part on whatever missions possible for the village one day he was sent as backup to an Anbu member who was returning to the village with sensitive information. It was a scroll containing the secrets of secret technique. After rendezvousing with the Anbu member they were ambushed. Like that day in the forest long ago the two Konoha ninja were at a disadvantage and Tekokura was injured trying to protect his comrade and the scroll. After a fierce battle both were able to escape, narrowly preventing the rogue ninja from taking the scroll. It had become badly damaged in the fight and the seal destroyed, and the Anbu member mortally wounded. Returning to the village took its toll on the senior ninja, and he lost his life despite the Konoha’s medical teams best effort. The scroll was turned over to the Hokage, It contained information on the legendary power of the Sages.
Though the mission had not go as planned, he had proved his loyalty as well as skill. To test the young ninja he was trained to further his Ninjutsu skill, with the hope he may learn this new ability. With his new experience and training he was eventually promoted to a member of the Anbu himself, often sent on missions outside the land of fire. For the last few months Tekokura was assigned as a guard, outside the land of fire. He now returns to the village after his mission to find things in a much less stable state than when he left.

This is my character's custom item thread.
Expert: Ninjutsu Experts can understand, learn, and use ninjutsu. They use half as many hand seals as would otherwise be required for all techniques (which may reduce the number of required hand seals to zero). Ninjutsu of a chosen element are treated as a rank more powerful (up to a maximum of S-Rank; if an Attribute-boosting technique has its power increased in this manner, its returns also diminish at a Minor Advantage less per tier). Ninjutsu Experts receive a Major Advantage to their Coordination for the purposes of aiming, and can perform hand seals as if the Attribute used were a Major Advantage higher for all techniques. Ninjutsu Experts may select a technique that they know, and permanently reduce the number of hand seals required to use it to one (this reduction does not stack with any other reduction). Ninjutsu Experts receive a pool of 60 Stamina Points that may only be spent on ninjutsu. They can create up to S-Rank customs for ninjutsu.
Taijutsu Specialists can understand, learn, and use martial arts techniques. They are trained in the locations of a body's weak points, as well as how best to strike them. They select a specific taijutsu style as their "signature style". Taijutsu Specialists receive a pool of 60 Stamina Points that may only be spent on their signature style and its subtechniques. Taijutsu Specialists track movement at a tier higher than they would otherwise be able to track, and they receive six advantages to any of their Attributes when performing taijutsu; the distribution of the granted advantages must be selected at the time the Specialist rank in the Taijutsu Skill is acquired, and cannot be allocated in increments greater than a single tier to any one Attribute. Taijutsu Specialists can create up to S-Rank techniques for taijutsu.

SAs and Flaws:
- Tekokura, because of his selfless nature, will alway attempt to protect a comrade while on a squad. When protecting someone, Tekokura gains a boost to his constitution, gaining major advantage.
- Tekokura is at home in the trees and is harder to track while moving through forests, making enemies loose major advantage in their tracking of him.
- While protecting someone, Tekokura is on full defensive, lowering his strength and losing major advantage.
