Name: Ken Hasu (蓮剣; Hasu Ken "Sword of the Lotus")
Age: 15
Gender: Male
Height: 5'7"
Weight: 135lbs.
Rank: Genin
Origin: Shinobi
Village: Kemuri
Restricted Loan Technique: Two Kekkei-Genkai (Wild)
Bloodline/Clan: Kaguya (Bloodline Slot)/Uchiha
Shikotsumyaku (屍骨脈; "Dead Bone Pulse")
  • Shikotsumyaku is the kekkei genkai of the extinct Kaguya clan, which gave them the ability to manipulate their skeletal structure (their osteoblasts and osteoclasts). By infusing their calcium with chakra, they could manipulate the growth and properties of their bones to their liking. This ability gives the user a unique skeletal structure. The main capabilities of Shikotsumyaku is allowing the user to manipulate the speed of their bones' growth as well as the location of calcium deposits. This allows them to create weapons of bones that can either protrude from any part of the body or pulled out and used like handheld weapons. The user was also able to create armor of dense bone underneath their skin. Immediately after the bone is pulled out, the broken skin heals. Although it seems it takes a bit longer for the limb to become usable again or unless the user regrows the bones consciously. They can even fire pieces of their bones as long-ranged projectiles. Any bone that they remove from the body immediately regenerates, as does the skin that is damaged when the bones are removed. Users can increase the density of the created bones, making them stronger than steel. This not only makes the created weapons very powerful but also makes their bodies virtually indestructible; the bones can withstand even a chakra-infused blade, which is usually enough to cut through anything. The bones structure can also be hollowed out completely. The Kaguya can technically pull out any of their bones at any time they want and regenerate them, but it is the hardening of them into weapons that costs chakra.
Sharingan [Unactivated] (写輪眼; "Copy Wheel Eye")
  • The Sharingan is the dōjutsu kekkei genkai of the Uchiha clan that appears selectively among its members. It is regarded as one of the "Three Great Dōjutsu", the others being the Byakugan and the Rinnegan. While its powers originated from Kaguya Ōtsutsuki's Rinne Sharingan, its independent form was first manifested by Indra Ōtsutsuki.

Amai Uchiha/Hasu (うちは甘い / 蓮甘い)
Amai Uchiha was raised in Otogakure from birth, alongside her younger brother, Adauchi Uchiha, under the Uchiha Dynasty established there by Shinji in the past century. Being born from an Uchiha father and a mother from outside the clan, they were half-blood Uchiha. Whereas Adauchi's sharingan was dominant, giving him the drive to become a strong shinobi, she settled for domestic life, her sharingan recessive. The siblings who once shared a strong bond separated further apart as time went on and they created their own lives. She developed her skills as a gardener and prepared herself for the duties of a wife. After a few unsuccessful relationships in her youth, she found her match in a young man who would frequent her flower shop, Jingi Hasu. They married with permission from their clans, and she became Amai Hasu, although the couple were dismayed at the inability to conceive a child over the years.

Jingi Hasu, "Younger Brother Bladesmith of the Hasu" (蓮神器, "Hasu no Otōto Hamono-ya; 蓮の弟刃物屋")
Jingi's great grandfather and the remnants of their family, the Hasu clan, left Kirigakure after its destruction in 708 AS, caused during the great battle between Donar and Shinji Uchiha. His family took refuge in then Otogakure and swore fealty to the nation. The Hasu clan lineage being renowned for their bladesmithing, a craft mastered during their origins in Kirigakure, were called upon for their services by the Otokage. They were to produce weapons during "Cotard's Delusion" in 710 AS and the following war with Kumogakure in 714 AS, and through this their family established their bonds to the nation and village. They enjoyed the wealth given in return for their services, prospering during Otogakure's peaceful era. And decades later when the drums of war started to beat again under Lord Hayate's rule, a young Jingi Hasu and his elder brother Hitoshi, the brother bladesmiths of the Hasu clan, were called upon, like their great grandfather, to produce arms for the battles to come in 796 AS. During these years is when Jingi met Amai and their relationship began to grow. After the war, he and his family, the small Hasu clan, watched as their village became a metropolis, a benefit to the conquest of Amegakure.

Backstory
Ken's story begins with his true parents, Adauchi Uchiha and Sakaeru Kaguya. Adauchi and Hogo Kaguya, Sakaeru's twin brother, were comrades between the shinobi villages of Otogakure and Kirigakure. Completing many missions together, as well as fighting side by side in Otogakure's conquest over the Land of Rain, Adauchi and Hogo became rivals but more importantly, best friends. And unknown to Hogo, although he had his suspicions, Adauchi's and Sakaeru's bond grew stronger too as their love began to flourish. Sakaeru wished to keep their love secret, for her father had already promised her to another member of the Kaguya clan in order to keep the bloodline strong. Being a born Kaguya and expressing their rare kekkei genkai, to marry outside the clan while possessing such a unique ability was blasphemous. But Adauchi was adamant and his resolve was unending in his love for Sakaeru. "Adauchi this masquerade cannot live forever, our love has grown into something precious." She told him that she was with child and no longer could they keep a shroud around their relationship. Adauchi proposed to her and that night they were secretly married. "All that matters is our child, and that we're together. Don't fret Sakaeru, I will handle the rest." Then the next day he approached her father, Shihai Kaguya, a prominent member of the clan, telling him of their marriage and demanding his approval. "This will unite our great families and further the bond of our villages! You must see to reason Shihai, her heart is not yours to control!" Outraged, her father demanded in retaliation that they immediately null their marriage and never see each other again. "Do not mistake your place Uchiha! You have already broken sacred vows and defiled my daughter, and now you dare step foot in my abode. Do not test my patience, or is it that you foolishly value my daughter above your own sworn duty." He sternly told Adauchi to chose between their forbidden love or his allegiance to their villages, nations, and his duty as a shinobi. "Father! Adauchi! This mustn't continue!" Hogo pleaded to both of them in an attempt to mediate, but in the end, Adauchi declined. "Its no use Hogo, the old man is stuck in his ways. But it is irrelevant, my love for Sakaeru is stronger than any bond that the world of shinobi could foster! I'm sorry friend..." The now traitor Uchiha escaped before the angered Kaguya and his clansmen could engage him in combat, although Shihai would not let it go so easily. He contacted Otogakure of Adauchi's betrayal, and both him and Sakaeru were then declared missing-nin. The two remained on the run, narrowly escaping the shinobi that were always on their trail, all while Sakaeru's belly grew in size. On a night that the full moon embraced the sky, the moment came when it was time for her to birth their child, so they hid within a cave to take refuge. For many hours she struggled during labor filling the air with her cries, ending with a stillborn son and laying in a puddle of her blood. She held her motionless child, and before her own life slipped away, she softly whispered to the devasted Adauchi. "As long as the moon shines, my love will guide you both, in life and death." It was then that Shihai and Hogo Kaguya, along with an escort of Oto and Kiri shinobi arrived at the cave. They found Adauchi hunched over Sakaeru's corpse, which still held their child, tears streaming down his face while he begged the gods to take his own life in return for theirs. Shihai, horrified by the sight of his dead daughter and child, began to blame Adauchi for all the trouble he caused. "You insolent fool! The blood of the Kaguya's Pale Moon is on your hands! You stole my daughter from me, so it is only right that the gods have chosen to smite that bastard abomination!" The Uchiha faced them and all the shinobi saw that his eyes were different, the fabled mangekyou sharingan gazed upon them. "No... NO! It was your arrogance and sinful pride that has caused this! Your eyes continue to remain blind to the coming truth, but I can see now. There is no longer any place in this world for the traditions of old!" A great battle ensued, but Adauchi's newfound power and rage from Sakaeru's death granted him strength. After quickly picking off the accompanying shinobi and dealing a lethal blow to Shihai, all that was left were the rivals and once best friends. "Adauchi, you have to stop! This isn't what Sakaeru would want! My sister is gone now... but she loved you deeply, I see that now, and she would want you to carry on!" Hogo pleaded once again to Adauchi to surrender and pay for his crimes, and that he would promise to oversee his punishments, but in the end, their rivalry was put to the test. "Can't you see Hogo, the shinobi world is filled unnecessary strife and incessant power struggles. Because of these illusionary binds of allegiance, our brethren's blood is spilled from age to age, even though there is but one moon under our sky. And even now you feel you must stop me, that it is your duty to pursue a false justice, all in the name of your clan and village, against your better judgment!" But just before Adauchi could deliver the killing blow to his former ally, something unexpected happened. The cave was filled with the sound of an infant's cry. The thought to be stillborn child, still held in Sakaeru's arms, gasped for air in between cries as the blue slowly retreated from his skin. Adauchi dropped his weapons and picked up his son, tears once again streaming down his face. He then grabbed one of the nearby kunai and plunged it deep into his torso, telling Hogo that it was the only way for himself to atone, and for Hogo to not come under scrutiny. As blood trickled down from his mouth, he asked Hogo for three dying wishes. First, to skew the reality of what took place that night, that Sakaeru was killed in the crossfire of the battle and that Hogo dealt the final blow to Adauchi. Second, to shroud the fact of Sakaeru's pregnancy and take his son, whom he named Ken that night, to his estranged sister, Amai, and her husband, Jingi Hasu, in the newly revitalized Otogakure, and promise them to the same secrecy, even to Ken, as well as telling her the truth behind her brother and her nephew. The third and last dying wish was a matter that Hogo has kept a secret from anyone till this very day. Adauchi, fading away, handed Ken to Hogo, who swore to upkeep his vow to Adauchi and protect his nephew. "I'm sorry... My friend..." Under the parenting of Amai and Jingi Hasu, where Ken was raised, is where his life truly began.


In 801 AS, Hogo showed up at Amai's doorstep with Ken, her brother's child. Giving him the Hasu name, they secretly adopted him, and to uphold the sworn secrecy she secluded herself for nine months to emulate a pregnancy. As an infant, he would cry for hours on end no matter how much Amai would console him, as if he knew something was missing. But as Ken grew older, they became ecstatic parents having him as a child, filling the void of not having children of their own, and they soon came to fill the void of Ken's parents. He was a happy child and overactive as most are, although his favorite part of the day was the stories told to him before bed. When it was Amai's turn to lull Ken to sleep, she would tell him stories of the great Uchihas. The legends of Indra, the accomplishments of Madara, and the saga of Sasuke, as well as the folk tales of great Uchiha from this age, Shinji, Hayate, and others scattered throughout history. And when it was Jingi's turn, he would weave the epics of the Seven Swordsmen of the Mist, legends that his father used to tell him. Ken, wide-eyed, took in every morsel of these bedtime stories and listened with intensity till the night took him away. One night Ken questioned Amai of his Uchiha heritage, enamored by those before him and the hopes that one day he too would inherit the sharingan and become a great shinobi. "Oh honey... Yes, you have Uchiha blood coursing through you, but your grandmother did not and neither does your father. I never inherited our clan's gift, that was my brother's lot in life, and someday I'll tell you about him. But that means sweetie that it would be very unlikely for you to possess the sharingan. Besides, you carry the Hasu name, and let me let you in on a little secret. Your father loves you very much and looks forward to training you in his craft when you're older. A shinobi's life is filled with tribulation, besides it would break my heart not having my little baby around!" They giggled cheerfully and Ken welcomed the incoming motherly embrace, but Amai hid the truth she knew behind her smile. The following day, during a perfect summer in 807 AS, Amai took Ken to visit the World Tree at the center of the village. She was pointing out the various flowers that laid at the massive trunk of the tree to Ken when their joyous day was interrupted with the quick-fire news spreading of Lord Hayate's assassination. In the years to follow Ken saw Saizo's ascension to Otokage and Daimyo, and the demonstrations of his swift vengeance for his father's murder. Once peace was restored, Otogakure and its domains were reforged into the Land of Smoke under the rule of Lord Saizo, the Kemurikage of Kemurigakure. Jingi knew that Ken was to carry on the Hasu name, many of his friends were starting at the academy and that meant the time had come. He was of age to begin his apprenticeship so his father started training him in the fundamental arts of bladesmithing. Unlike the other bladesmiths of his clan in his generation and those past, Jingi practiced the art of kenjutsu and was highly exceptional at it. After Ken crafted his first sword, although, of rudimentary quality, Jingi began to teach him the arts of kenjutsu, often repeating his motto. "How can you master the art of bladesmithing without truly understanding the sword." As Ken reached into his early teen years, he spent most of his youth with Jingi learning his craft and talents. When Ken saw friends from his childhood becoming shinobi, as well as all the shinobi around the village, it exasperated his repressed desire to join the academy. But he knew how much it meant to his father for him to carry the family name and continue on his craft. Besides, you carry the Hasu name. Still, he often thought of the stories his mother and father would tell him when he was a child, of Great Uchihas, Seven Swordsmen, Otokages, and shinobi of legends, and even conquest of the current Kemurikage. "Do you know why Ken has been so distant lately? He's always lost in his head during our training these days. I think it is because he has wanted to join the academy for a while now, and honestly Amai, I'm beginning to consider if we should let him join." "Jingi, isn't he much too old? And anyway he's better off here with you then off fighting in some covert war." "That may be true, but the heart wants what it wants, and I can tell that his heart lies in the path of the shinobi. Maybe it's our fault for filling his head with all those stories as a child, but I don't think we can deny him this Amai. Who are we to get in the way of what his heart wants, isn't that how he was brought into this world, through the will of the heart?" "But.. he's all I have left of him Jingi. I don't want to lose him too..." "He will come back to us, I promise, I know it. He will make his father proud." In 813 AS on Ken's twelveth birthday, Amai and Jingi surprised him by announcing that they had enrolled him in Kemurigakure's ninja academy. Although he was four years past the usual age of someone entering the academy, Ken was jubilant nonetheless. He put his full effort into the academy due to his late entrance and excelled through classes at an astonishing rate. He showed an aptitude for taijutsu, genjutsu, and especially ninjutsu and by thereof, Katon release, although he lacked the proper training and chakra control to manifest it into jutsu yet. When it came to Ken's kenjutsu skills in the academy, thanks to his father's training, he was the best in his class, even beating or being on par with his proctors. In 815 AS, after two years in the academy, Ken at the age of 14, was deemed graduated, having shown exceptional natural skill as well as a willingness to learn and adapt. Thereafter he was assigned the routine sensei and two teammates. As fate would have it, again was it a perfect summer day when Ken was on his way to meet his shinobi squad for the first time. But as he ran through town, he saw all the village people weeping in despair, for it had been announced that like his father, Lord Saizo had been assassinated. Ken got to know his squad although under dire circumstances as the powers of the world shifted, leading to their rare formation and training due to their sensei being needed for other national matters. In the months to come, the life of "modern" shinobi halted and its true faced was revealed at the start of the Eighth Great Shinobi War. Konohagakure and Sunagakure launched a full-scale attack on Kemurikagure, uniting to declare war against the Land of Smoke. All shinobi and warriors were called upon to protect their village, so Ken formed with his squad for his first unofficial mission as a shinobi. Massive pockets of fights broke out all over the village, and his squad held its own for a while. But as the battle raged on, through the opponent's use of jutsu, the scales tipped in their favor. During the skirmish, Ken witnessed a large fire release jutsu wash over the district he lived in. He frantically looked for a way out, but his squad had become overrun. He watched as his squadmates were slain before him, his sensei telling him to run with his dying breath. Although three shinobi from the opposing side of the war still cornered Ken, pressing closer and closer, his struggles to no avail. But in a deus ex machina, Ken was saved by a mysterious Kiri shinobi of pale complexion and white hair. The stranger began to fight off the enemies and when the opportunity presented itself for an escape he yelled to Ken. "Go! Find your mother!" Startled, Ken thought it was peculiar that this shinobi he's never heard of or seen before knew his mother, but pushed the thought aside and ran as quickly as he could to his home. It was a horrifying sight for Ken, his home street lit ablaze, the place he's known the most his whole life, and the fire had spread to his house but not severely. Its not too late. Ken burst through his front door, but then all seemed to fall silent. Before him was a shinobi of Sunagakure, his blade still warm with his father's blood. Amai held Jingi in her arms, tears and horror covering her face. The Suna shinobi was in mid-swing, aiming for Amai when Ken interrupted, the shinobi turning to Ken as his mother called out to him. Ken instinctively lept towards the enemy, his body acting on its own volition. "Leave her alone!!!" The two engaged, mainly in a contest of kenjutsu but the advanced skills the Suna shinobi possessed showed in their battle. He berated Ken, saying that his father taught him well but that he was just a kid. Disarmed, Ken laid upon the ground, the Suna shinobi seconds from finishing him, when he saw his father's sword beside him, but he was too slow. Amai watched as the enemy's blade plunged towards Ken's heart. "Ken!!!" Am I dead? Ken thought but as he opened his eyes the Suna shinobi still stood before him, his pale expression one of shock. Ken grabbed his father's sword and thrust it through the shinobi's chest, blood splattering from his mouth before he keeled over with a death throe. Ken looked to his chest where rib-like protrusions jutted out in a spiral fashion, locking the shinobi's blade into place just above Ken's heart, the tip scratching his skin. He scrambled to his knees, eyes wide at the bones that protruded from him. The shock began to set in and he begged his mother to make it stop. "Mother what is this?! Am I a monster?! Make it go away!!!" Suddenly, the mysterious shinobi from earlier appeared, knocking Ken out and grabbing him. "Come on Amai, we must go! The fire is too much!" "Hogo?! Wait we must grab Jingi!" They both dragged Jingi's corpse and Ken from their burning home, and by a saving grace made it out of the village. From a distance, they watched as the whole village was consumed by massive vines and a thick cloud of pollen. On the outskirts, they buried Jingi and waited for what was to come. Over the following months, maximum effort in the nation was put towards the rebuilding of Kemurigakure, all while the Eighth Great Shinobi War raged on. All standby shinobi and unactive Genin were assigned to helping in this process, so Ken aided in the village's restoration. While the others did not, one of his squadmates, his old rival Toge Tsuru (つる棘), survived the battle miraculously, although his injuries were too severe for him to continue being a shinobi. Ken in between his constant running of errands for the village often spent time silently grieving with his mother or visiting Toge. The months passed and everything seemed to stabilize, even though the Eighth Great Shinobi War technically never ended. Still, Ken deeply felt the void left by the death of his father, and the bubbling hatred of Suna and Konoha that began to seep into his world view. Determined now more than ever to become a great shinobi, Ken began training his body on his own, knowing that someday soon the village will call on him again. Hitoshi Hasu, Jingi's brother, sought out Ken one day finding him at his training place on the outskirts of the village, knowing he'd be near Jingi's grave. Ken had only met Hitoshi a few times throughout his life, but he knew he was his uncle. But he stayed silent as Hitoshi tried to coax him. "Look, kid, I know your hurting, but I've known your father my whole life. He would not want you to become consumed by vengeance as so many have in the past. I never really got him, but he understood the softer parts to life, that's why he fell in love with your mother. Sometimes we have to let go of our past. If you ever decide to continue your father's path to honor his name, just know I am here for you." Time went on and soon it was 816 AS. With political turmoil and warfare beginning to ease up, bureaucracy resumed. Ken was prepared to pursue his shinobi career once again as the village reformed its shinobi squads.
Theme Song: Ken's Main Theme. Ken's Battle Theme. Ken's Sad Theme.
Chakra Color: Dark Crimson
Nindo: "A true bond can shatter any binding, and I shall use my life to protect those bonds!"

Personality Traits: Driven, although sometimes is Absentminded and shows an Aloofness that hides his inner self, a self that cares deeply about those around him and the bonds he creates. Due to his past pain, he creates a wall around himself, giving him a Stoic personality. When in reality deep down he is as much vulnerable to his emotions as all humans are, and ultimately longs to have an open heart like that of his younger self. Those that do manage to see beneath this surface realize he is truly Affable and usually develops an unbreakable bond with him. He tends to be awkward around girls because of his lack of romantic experience, although this tends to come off as a Distant silence or a false unwillingness to associate when in truth it is a mask for his anxiety about the topic.

Character Preferences:
  • Holds a deep hatred for Shinobi from Konohagakure and especially Sunagakure for their actions in the Eighth Great Shinobi War.
  • Easily gets along with Shinobi from Kirigakure due to their alliance and the Hasu clan's origins in the village.
  • Ken likes to develop rivalries as the two's strength as well as the bond grows strong, and as a way to constantly motivate him and push his limits.
  • Has a natural disposition against traditions or doing things "just because" especially if it is wrong.
  • While Ken prizes his strength and seeks to always improve, he knows the dangers of pride and has heard too many tales of shinobi's deaths due to their arrogance. So he prefers to be reserved, never abusing his power or overextending himself.
  • Likes: Absolutely loves pork yakinku and yakisoba. Has love for all flowers, especially the lotus. Will often stay up late to watch the moon.
  • Dislikes: Won't touch anything spicy. Is terrified of wasps or any variations besides the peaceful kind bees.
  • Straight Male (although maybe he just hasn't found the right guy yet lmao)

  • Receive four swords of any kind which, if lost, they can replace upon entering a village (unless that village is hostile to the character).
  • Can create up to S-Rank customs for kenjutsu.
Minor Skills
  • Ninjutsu Adept (Adept Element: Katon)
  • Use three-quarters as many hand seals as would otherwise be required (rounding down, to a minimum of one hand seal) when performing ninjutsu.
  • Ninjutsu of a chosen element required to use only half as many hand seals (which may reduce the number of required hand seals to zero).
  • Receive a Minor Advantage to Coordination for the purposes of aiming, and can perform hand seals as if the Attribute used were a Minor Advantage higher when performing ninjutsu.
  • Receive a pool of 30 Stamina Points that may only be spent on ninjutsu.
  • Can create up to A-Rank customs for ninjutsu.
  • Bladesmith Apprentice
  • Apprenticeship allows the crafting of Apprentice-level items from already existing blueprints. Apprentice-level items take 2 days IRL to create and are of Apprentice-level durability.
Elements:
  • Katon (火遁; Fire Release)

Special Abilities:
  • One-handed Hand Seals: Ken can perform hand seals for jutsus with a single hand, allowing him to combine ninjutsu or genjutsu and kenjutsu or taijutsu simultaneously.
  • Reactive Defense: Ken's Shikotsumyaku kekkei genkai primarily comes out during life or death moments in the form of a subconscious defense such as rib-like bones that protrude to block incoming weapons, or plates of bone to mitigate damage from taijutsu. Once per Topic, Reactive Defense grants a Tier Advantage to Constitution for purposes of defending against the attack.
  • Inner Will: When Ken is fighting someone with a higher Strength than him or in some other way stronger or is a shinobi of Suna or Konoha, he lets go of his reservations and gives the fight his all. Tapping into his inner reserve of power, he gains a Major Advantage to Stamina. He must first witness an example of their Strength or how they're more powerful than him before the bonus is applied.
  • Encapsulating Beauty: When fighting alongside a kunoichi, Ken loses some of his rational thought and his reservations go out the window. In an attempt to impress her, even if it is only subconscious, Ken gains a Major Advantage to Strength.
Flaws:
  • Non-Dominant Hand: When performing hand seals with only one hand, Ken suffers a Tier Disadvantage to hand seal speed.
  • Body's Own Volition: When the reactive defense takes place it consumes 5 points of Stamina, and since it acts upon its own accord it could deplete the last of Ken's chakra and send him into a critical state. Ken must be aware of the attack and it only defends against life-threatening attacks that he is unable to defend against himself. If Ken's natural Constitution drops below Proficient, the Reactive Defense SA cannot trigger. Also due to the odd nature of his body, Iijutsu requires double the chakra to be used on Ken (an S-rank Ijutsu technique would cost 40 SP).
  • Subconscious Underestimation: Due to Ken being raised on the dangers of pride, he actively restrains his power against those whom it is not needed, and doesn't commit to his full extent. This leads to a subconscious underestimation of the opponent, ironically, and Ken slightly lets his guard down. When fighting someone with lower Strength than Ken or less powerful or is a shinobi of Kemuri or Kiri, he receives a Major Disadvantage to Wisdom. He must first witness an example of their Strength or how they're weaker than him before the penalty is applied.
  • Crippling Awkwardness: When fighting alongside a kunoichi, Ken is also more awkward and overly aware of his body movements, leaving himself prone to fumbling or tripping over himself. He receives a Major Disadvantage to Coordination.

The First Flaw doesn't really balance well against the SA, due to once at higher tiers of Coord it doesn't really end up mattering. So it's a really weak flaw.

The second SA/Flaw combo is denied. This SA/Flaw combo goes against how the system is in the first place since it bypasses how much Durability you can have at each tier of Con and due to that, it's not exactly balanced and how the durability system works.

Would these changes to the SAs and Flaws in question work?

Special Abilities:
  • One-handed Hand Seals: Ken can perform hand seals for jutsus with a single hand, allowing him to combine ninjutsu or genjutsu and kenjutsu or taijutsu simultaneously.
  • Reactive Defense: Ken's Shikotsumyaku kekkei genkai primarily comes out in the form of a subconscious reactive defense such as rib-like bones that protrude to block an incoming swing of a weapon, or plates of bone to mitigate damage from taijutsu or ninjutsu. This grants a Tier Advantage to Constitution for purposes of defending against the attack.
Flaws:
  • Non-Dominant Hand: When performing hand seals with only one hand, Ken suffers a Tier Penalty to hand seal speed.
  • Body's Own Volition: Ken must be aware of the attack for the reactive defense to take place, and it only defends against life-threatening attacks that he is unable to defend against himself. When the reactive defense takes place it consumes 5 points of Stamina, and since it acts upon its own accord it could deplete the last of Ken's chakra and send him into a critical state. If Ken's natural Constitution drops below Proficient, the Reactive Defense SA cannot trigger. Due to the fast nature of the subconscious bone growth, it's weaker than other advanced techniques of the Kaguya so they can only resist attacks from basic weapons. This ability makes it difficult to hide the knowledge of his possession of the Kaguya's kekkei genkai to his opponents. Also due to the odd nature of his body, Iijutsu requires chakra as if it's a rank higher to be used on Ken.

First one is typically a Tier to Coordination, which dictates everything else you can do.

Second, the SA and Flaw have discrepancies between the two but it's a bit wonky still with balancing due to a full tier for 5SP. The SA says Taijutsu/Nin while the Flaw says Melee weapons so... I think this is something that really can't be worked out in a way that is well to balance. So it's something I would deny.

Yeah I was gonna do that, but when I was making my character I was looking at approved characters for examples. I noticed a lot of characters have the One-handed Hand Seals SA with different variations for their flaws. So I went back and looked and there are a lot of characters who are approved with the flaw that it only reduces hand seal speed by a Tier such as Mimorisa Kasanaga, Kara Uzamaki, and Sayaka Uchiha. Not to argue though, I'll accept the full penalty if you still think it's unbalanced, just wanted to point out the other cases where characters were approved with only the hand seal speed penalty.

For the second one please bear with me, I'll only try for this SA one more time. I apologize for being so adamant it's just that I included this SA in my backstory for story's sake but ultimately if I have to change things around then I will. My reasoning for it costing 5 SP was the mechanics of jutsu. A C-rank booster technique can raise a sole attribute by a Tier, which costs 5 SP. Although SA's are not jutsu so I can understand how that wouldn't apply here so if you still feel it should cost more, would 10 SP be appropriate? As for the bit about melee weapons in the flaw, I included that because on the Kaguya Clan page, under a couple of the Hiden it states that the bones can resist weapons of basic and apprentice quality, so I wanted to nerf it since it's a SA but I understand how resisting basic weapons can be unbalanced so I've omitted that part. I've changed the wording for better clarity, removed the ability for it to trigger against ninjutsu (so weapons and taijutsu only), and added that it can be only be used once per topic as I can see how one could see the potential for abuse otherwise. I've also changed the Ijutsu aspect of the flaw from only costing a rank higher in chakra to double the chakra.

Special Abilities:
  • Reactive Defense: Ken's Shikotsumyaku kekkei genkai primarily comes out during life or death moments in the form of a subconscious defense such as rib-like bones that protrude to block incoming weapons, or plates of bone to mitigate damage from taijutsu. Once per Topic, Reactive Defense grants a Tier Advantage to Constitution for purposes of defending against the attack.
Flaws:
  • Body's Own Volition: When the reactive defense takes place it consumes 5 points of Stamina, and since it acts upon its own accord it could deplete the last of Ken's chakra and send him into a critical state. Ken must be aware of the attack and it only defends against life-threatening attacks that he is unable to defend against himself. If Ken's natural Constitution drops below Proficient, the Reactive Defense SA cannot trigger. Also due to the odd nature of his body, Iijutsu requires double the chakra to be used on Ken (an S-rank Ijutsu technique would cost 40 SP).

I shall be fine with the Handseal speed one, apologies there.

I'm more so also not fine with that due to this is being compared to a jutsu, which is very... unlike an SA in that regard. With the addition that it can only be activated once per a topic, I am fine with this SA/Flaw Combination due to it.

Quote:
Name: Ken Hasu (蓮剣; Hasu Ken "Sword of the Lotus")
Age: 15
Gender: Male
Height: 5'7"
Weight: 135lbs.
Rank: Genin
Origin: Shinobi
Village: Kemuri
Restricted Loan Technique: Two Kekkei-Genkai (Wild)
Bloodline/Clan: Kaguya (Bloodline Slot)/Uchiha
Shikotsumyaku (屍骨脈; "Dead Bone Pulse")
  • Shikotsumyaku is the kekkei genkai of the extinct Kaguya clan, which gave them the ability to manipulate their own skeletal structure (their osteoblasts and osteoclasts). By infusing their calcium with chakra, they could manipulate the growth and properties of their bones to their liking. This ability gives the user a unique skeletal structure. The main capabilities of Shikotsumyaku is allowing the user to manipulate the speed of their bones' growth as well as the location of calcium deposits. This allows them to create weapons of bones that can either protrude from any part of the body or pulled out and used like handheld weapons. The user was also able to create armor of dense bone underneath their skin. Immediately after the bone is pulled out, the broken skin heals. Although it seems it takes a bit longer for the limb to become usable again or unless the user regrows the bones consciously. They can even fire pieces of their bones as long-ranged projectiles. Any bone that they remove from the body immediately regenerates, as does the skin that is damaged when the bones are removed. Users can increase the density of the created bones, making them stronger than steel. This not only makes the created weapons very powerful but also makes their bodies virtually indestructible; the bones can withstand even a chakra-infused blade, which is usually enough to cut through anything. The bones structure can also be hollowed out completely. The Kaguya can technically pull out any of their bones at any time they want and regenerate them, but it is the hardening of them into weapons that costs chakra.
Sharingan [Unactivated] (写輪眼; "Copy Wheel Eye")
  • The Sharingan is the dōjutsu kekkei genkai of the Uchiha clan that appears selectively among its members. It is regarded as one of the "Three Great Dōjutsu", the others being the Byakugan and the Rinnegan. While its powers originated from Kaguya Ōtsutsuki's Rinne Sharingan, its independent form was first manifested by Indra Ōtsutsuki.

Amai Uchiha/Hasu (うちは甘い / 蓮甘い)
Amai Uchiha was raised in Otogakure from birth, alongside her younger brother, Adauchi Uchiha, under the Uchiha Dynasty established there by Shinji in the past century. Being born from an Uchiha father and a mother from outside the clan, they were half-blood Uchiha. Whereas Adauchi's sharingan was dominant, giving him the drive to become a strong shinobi, she settled for domestic life, her sharingan recessive. The siblings who once shared a strong bond separated further apart as time went on and they created their own lives. She developed her skills as a gardener and prepared herself for the duties of a wife. After a few unsuccessful relationships in her youth, she found her match in a young man who would frequent her flower shop, Jingi Hasu. They married with permission from their clans, and she became Amai Hasu, although the couple were dismayed at the inability to conceive a child over the years.

Jingi Hasu, "Younger Brother Bladesmith of the Hasu" (蓮神器, "Hasu no Otōto Hamono-ya; 蓮の弟刃物屋")
Jingi's great grandfather and the remnants of their family, the Hasu clan, left Kirigakure after its destruction in 708 AS, caused during the great battle between Donar and Shinji Uchiha. His family took refuge in then Otogakure and swore fealty to the nation. The Hasu clan lineage being renowned for their bladesmithing, a craft mastered during their origins in Kirigakure, were called upon for their services by the Otokage. They were to produce weapons during "Cotard's Delusion" in 710 AS and the following war with Kumogakure in 714 AS, and through this their family established their bonds to the nation and village. They enjoyed the wealth given in return for their services, prospering during Otogakure's peaceful era. And decades later when the drums of war started to beat again under Lord Hayate's rule, a young Jingi Hasu and his elder brother Hitoshi, the brother bladesmiths of the Hasu clan, were called upon, like their great grandfather, to produce arms for the battles to come in 796 AS. During these years is when Jingi met Amai and their relationship began to grow. After the war, he and his family, the small Hasu clan, watched as their village became a metropolis, a benefit to the conquest of Amegakure.

Backstory
Ken's story begins with his true parents, Adauchi Uchiha and Sakaeru Kaguya. Adauchi and Hogo Kaguya, Sakaeru's twin brother, were comrades between the shinobi villages of Otogakure and Kirigakure. Completing many missions together, as well as fighting side by side in Otogakure's conquest over the Land of Rain, Adauchi and Hogo became rivals but more importantly, best friends. And unknown to Hogo, although he had his suspicions, Adauchi's and Sakaeru's bond grew stronger too as their love began to flourish. Sakaeru wished to keep their love secret, for her father had already promised her to another member of the Kaguya clan in order to keep the bloodline strong. Being a born Kaguya and expressing their rare kekkei genkai, to marry outside the clan while possessing such a unique ability was blasphemous. But Adauchi was adamant and his resolve was unending in his love for Sakaeru. "Adauchi this masquerade cannot live forever, our love has grown into something precious." She told him that she was with child and no longer could they keep a shroud around their relationship. Adauchi proposed to her and that night they were secretly married. "All that matters is our child, and that we're together. Don't fret Sakaeru, I will handle the rest." Then the next day he approached her father, Shihai Kaguya, a prominent member of the clan, telling him of their marriage and demanding his approval. "This will unite our great families and further the bond of our villages! You must see to reason Shihai, her heart is not yours to control!" Outraged, her father demanded in retaliation that they immediately null their marriage and never see each other again. "Do not mistake your place Uchiha! You have already broken sacred vows and defiled my daughter, and now you dare step foot in my abode. Do not test my patience, or is it that you foolishly value my daughter above your own sworn duty." He sternly told Adauchi to chose between their forbidden love or his allegiance to their villages, nations, and his duty as a shinobi. "Father! Adauchi! This mustn't continue!" Hogo pleaded to both of them in an attempt to mediate, but in the end, Adauchi declined. "Its no use Hogo, the old man is stuck in his ways. But it is irrelevant, my love for Sakaeru is stronger than any bond that the world of shinobi could foster! I'm sorry friend..." The now traitor Uchiha escaped before the angered Kaguya and his clansmen could engage him in combat, although Shihai would not let it go so easily. He contacted Otogakure of Adauchi's betrayal, and both him and Sakaeru were then declared missing-nin. The two remained on the run, narrowly escaping the shinobi that were always on their trail, all while Sakaeru's belly grew in size. On a night that the full moon embraced the sky, the moment came when it was time for her to birth their child, so they hid within a cave to take refuge. For many hours she struggled during labor filling the air with her cries, ending with a stillborn son and laying in a puddle of her blood. She held her motionless child, and before her own life slipped away, she softly whispered to the devasted Adauchi. "As long as the moon shines, my love will guide you both, in life and death." It was then that Shihai and Hogo Kaguya, along with an escort of Oto and Kiri shinobi arrived at the cave. They found Adauchi hunched over Sakaeru's corpse, that still held their child, tears streaming down his face while he begged the gods to take his own life in return for theirs. Shihai, horrified by the sight of his dead daughter and child, began to blame Adauchi for all the trouble he caused. "You insolent fool! The blood of the Kaguya's Pale Moon is on your hands! You stole my daughter from me, so it is only right that the gods have chosen to smite that bastard abomination!" The Uchiha faced them and all the shinobi saw that his eyes were different, the fabled mangekyou sharingan gazed upon them. "No... NO! It was your arrogance and sinful pride that has caused this! Your eyes continue to remain blind to the coming truth, but I can see now. There is no longer any place in this world for the traditions of old!" A great battle ensued, but Adauchi's newfound power and rage from Sakaeru's death granted him strength. After quickly picking off the accompanying shinobi and dealing a lethal blow to Shihai, all that was left were the rivals and once best friends. "Adauchi, you have to stop! This isn't what Sakaeru would want! My sister is gone now... but she loved you deeply, I see that now, and she would want you to carry on!" Hogo pleaded once again to Adauchi to surrender and pay for his crimes, and that he would promise to oversee his punishments, but in the end, their rivalry was put to the test. "Can't you see Hogo, the shinobi world is filled unnecessary strife and incessant power struggles. Because of these illusionary binds of allegiance, our brethren's blood is spilled from age to age, even though there is but one moon under our sky. And even now you feel you must stop me, that it is your duty to pursue a false justice, all in the name of your clan and village, against your better judgment!" But just before Adauchi could deliver the killing blow to his former ally, something unexpected happened. The cave was filled with the sound of an infant's cry. The thought to be stillborn child, still held in Sakaeru's arms, gasped for air in between cries as the blue slowly retreated from his skin. Adauchi dropped his weapons and picked up his son, tears once again streaming down his face. He then grabbed one of the nearby kunai and plunged it deep into his torso, telling Hogo that it was the only way for himself to atone, and for Hogo to not come under scrutiny. As blood trickled down from his mouth, he asked Hogo for three dying wishes. First, to skew the reality of what took place that night, that Sakaeru was killed in the crossfire of the battle and that Hogo dealt the final blow to Adauchi. Second, to shroud the fact of Sakaeru's pregnancy and take his son, whom he named Ken that night, to his estranged sister, Amai, and her husband, Jingi Hasu, in the newly revitalized Otogakure, and promise them to the same secrecy, even to Ken, as well as telling her the truth behind her brother and her nephew. The third and last dying wish was a matter that Hogo has kept a secret from anyone till this very day. Adauchi, fading away, handed Ken to Hogo, who swore to upkeep his vow to Adauchi and protect his nephew. "I'm sorry... My friend..." Under the parenting of Amai and Jingi Hasu, where Ken was raised, is where his life truly began.


In 801 AS, Hogo showed up at Amai's doorstep with Ken, her brother's child. Giving him the Hasu name, they secretly adopted him, and to uphold the sworn secrecy she secluded herself for nine months to emulate a pregnancy. As an infant, he would cry for hours on end no matter how much Amai would console him, as if he knew something was missing. But as Ken grew older, they became ecstatic parents having him as a child, filling the void of not having children of their own, and they soon came to fill the void of Ken's parents. He was a happy child and overactive as most are, although his favorite part of the day was the stories told to him before bed. When it was Amai's turn to lull Ken to sleep, she would tell him stories of the great Uchihas. The legends of Indra, the accomplishments of Madara, and the saga of Sasuke, as well as the folk tales of great Uchiha from this age, Shinji, Hayate, and others scattered throughout history. And when it was Jingi's turn, he would weave the epics of the Seven Swordsmen of the Mist, legends that his father used to tell him. Ken, wide-eyed, took in every morsel of these bedtime stories and listened with intensity till the night took him away. One night Ken questioned Amai of his Uchiha heritage, enamored by those before him and the hopes that one day he too would inherit the sharingan and become a great shinobi. "Oh honey... Yes, you have Uchiha blood coursing through you, but your grandmother did not and neither does your father. I never inherited our clan's gift, that was my brother's lot in life, and someday I'll tell you about him. But that means sweetie that it would be very unlikely for you to possess the sharingan. Besides, you carry the Hasu name, and let me let you in on a little secret. Your father loves you very much and looks forward to training you in his craft when you're older. A shinobi's life is filled with tribulation, besides it would break my heart not having my little baby around!" They giggled cheerfully and Ken welcomed the incoming motherly embrace, but Amai hid the truth she knew behind her smile. The following day, during a perfect summer in 807 AS, Amai took Ken to visit the World Tree at the center of the village. She was pointing out the various flowers that laid at the massive trunk of the tree to Ken when their joyous day was interrupted with the quick-fire news spreading of Lord Hayate's assassination. In the years to follow Ken saw Saizo's ascension to Otokage and Daimyo, and the demonstrations of his swift vengeance for his father's murder. Once peace was restored, Otogakure and its domains were reforged into the Land of Smoke under the rule of Lord Saizo, the Kemurikage of Kemurigakure. Jingi knew that Ken was to carry on the Hasu name, many of his friends were starting at the academy and that meant the time had come. He was of age to begin his apprenticeship so his father started training him in the fundamental arts of bladesmithing. Unlike the other bladesmiths of his clan in his generation and those past, Jingi practiced the art of kenjutsu and was highly exceptional at it. After Ken crafted his first sword, although, of rudimentary quality, Jingi began to teach him the arts of kenjutsu, often repeating his motto. "How can you master the art of bladesmithing without truly understanding the sword." As Ken reached into his early teen years, he spent most of his youth with Jingi learning his craft and talents. When Ken saw friends from his childhood becoming shinobi, as well as all the shinobi around the village, it exasperated his repressed desire to join the academy. But he knew how much it meant to his father for him to carry the family name and continue on his craft. Besides, you carry the Hasu name. Still, he often thought of the stories his mother and father would tell him when he was a child, of Great Uchihas, Seven Swordsmen, Otokages, and shinobi of legends, and even conquest of the current Kemurikage. "Do you know why Ken has been so distant lately? He's always lost in his head during our training these days. I think it is because he has wanted to join the academy for a while now, and honestly Amai, I'm beginning to consider if we should let him join." "Jingi, isn't he much too old? And anyway he's better off here with you then off fighting in some covert war." "That may be true, but the heart wants what it wants, and I can tell that his heart lies in the path of the shinobi. Maybe it's our fault for filling his head with all those stories as a child, but I don't think we can deny him this Amai. Who are we to get in the way of what his heart wants, isn't that how he was brought into this world, through the will of the heart?" "But.. he's all I have left of him Jingi. I don't want to lose him too..." "He will come back to us, I promise, I know it. He will make his father proud." In 813 AS on Ken's twelveth birthday, Amai and Jingi surprised him by announcing that they had enrolled him in Kemurigakure's ninja academy. Although he was four years past the usual age of someone entering the academy, Ken was jubilant nonetheless. He put his full effort into the academy due to his late entrance and excelled through classes at an astonishing rate. He showed an aptitude for taijutsu, genjutsu, and especially ninjutsu and by thereof, Katon release, although he lacked the proper training and chakra control to manifest it into jutsu yet. When it came to Ken's kenjutsu skills in the academy, thanks to his father's training, he was the best in his class, even beating or being on par with his proctors. In 815 AS, after two years in the academy, Ken at the age of 14, was deemed graduated, having shown exceptional natural skill as well as a willingness to learn and adapt. Thereafter he was assigned the routine sensei and two teammates. As fate would have it, again was it a perfect summer day when Ken was on his way to meet his shinobi squad for the first time. But as he ran through town, he saw all the village people weeping in despair, for it had been announced that like his father, Lord Saizo had been assassinated. Ken got to know his squad although under dire circumstances as the powers of the world shifted, leading to their rare formation and training due to their sensei being needed for other national matters. In the months to come, the life of "modern" shinobi halted and its true faced was revealed at the start of the Eighth Great Shinobi War. Konohagakure and Sunagakure launched a full-scale attack on Kemurikagure, uniting to declare war against the Land of Smoke. All shinobi and warriors were called upon to protect their village, so Ken formed with his squad for his first unofficial mission as a shinobi. Massive pockets of fights broke out all over the village, and his squad held its own for a while. But as the battle raged on, through the opponent's use of jutsu, the scales tipped in their favor. During the skirmish, Ken witnessed a large fire release jutsu wash over the district he lived in. He frantically looked for a way out, but his squad had become overrun. He watched as his squadmates were slain before him, his sensei telling him to run with his dying breath. Although three shinobi from the opposing side of the war still cornered Ken, pressing closer and closer, his struggles to no avail. But in a deus ex machina, Ken was saved by a mysterious Kiri shinobi of pale complexion and white hair. The stranger began to fight off the enemies and when the opportunity presented itself for an escape he yelled to Ken. "Go! Find your mother!" Startled, Ken thought it was peculiar that this shinobi he's never heard of or seen before knew his mother, but pushed the thought aside and ran as quickly as he could to his home. It was a horrifying sight for Ken, his home street lit ablaze, the place he's known the most his whole life, and the fire had spread to his house but not severely. Its not too late. Ken burst through his front door, but then all seemed to fall silent. Before him was a shinobi of Sunagakure, his blade still warm with his father's blood. Amai held Jingi in her arms, tears and horror covering her face. The Suna shinobi was in mid-swing, aiming for Amai when Ken interrupted, the shinobi turning to Ken as his mother called out to him. Ken instinctively lept towards the enemy, his body acting on its own volition. "Leave her alone!!!" The two engaged, mainly in a contest of kenjutsu but the advanced skills the Suna shinobi possessed showed in their battle. He berated Ken, saying that his father taught him well but that he was just a kid. Disarmed, Ken laid upon the ground, the Suna shinobi seconds from finishing him, when he saw his father's sword beside him, but he was too slow. Amai watched as the enemy's blade plunged towards Ken's heart. "Ken!!!" Am I dead? Ken thought but as he opened his eyes the Suna shinobi still stood before him, his pale expression one of shock. Ken grabbed his father's sword and thrust it through the shinobi's chest, blood splattering from his mouth before he keeled over with a death throe. Ken looked to his chest where rib-like protrusions jutted out in a spiral fashion, locking the shinobi's blade into place just above Ken's heart, the tip scratching his skin. He scrambled to his knees, eyes wide at the bones that protruded from him. The shock began to set in and he begged his mother to make it stop. "Mother what is this?! Am I a monster?! Make it go away!!!" Suddenly, the mysterious shinobi from earlier appeared, knocking Ken out and grabbing him. "Come on Amai, we must go! The fire is too much!" "Hogo?! Wait we must grab Jingi!" They both dragged Jingi's corpse and Ken from their burning home, and by a saving grace made it out of the village. From a distance, they watched as the whole village was consumed by massive vines and a thick cloud of pollen. On the outskirts, they buried Jingi and waited for what was to come. Over the following months, maximum effort in the nation was put towards the rebuilding of Kemurigakure, all while the Eighth Great Shinobi War raged on. All standby shinobi and unactive Genin were assigned to helping in this process, so Ken aided in the village's restoration. While the others did not, one of his squadmates, his old rival Toge Tsuru (つる棘), survived the battle miraculously, although his injuries were too severe for him to continue being a shinobi. Ken in between his constant running of errands for the village often spent time silently grieving with his mother or visiting Toge. The months passed and everything seemed to stabilize, even though the Eighth Great Shinobi War technically never ended. Still, Ken deeply felt the void left by the death of his father, and the bubbling hatred of Suna and Konoha that began to seep into his world view. Determined now more than ever to become a great shinobi, Ken began training his body on his own, knowing that someday soon the village will call on him again. Hitoshi Hasu, Jingi's brother, sought out Ken one day finding him at his training place on the outskirts of the village, knowing he'd be near Jingi's grave. Ken had only met Hitoshi a few times throughout his life, but he knew he was his uncle. But he stayed silent as Hitoshi tried to coax him. "Look, kid, I know your hurting, but I've known your father my whole life. He would not want you to become consumed by vengeance as so many have in the past. I never really got him, but he understood the softer parts to life, that's why he fell in love with your mother. Sometimes we have to let go of our past. If you ever decide to continue your father's path to honor his name, just know I am here for you." Time went on and soon it was 816 AS. With political turmoil and warfare beginning to ease up, bureaucracy resumed. Ken was prepared to pursue his shinobi career once again as the village reformed its shinobi squads.
Theme Song: Ken's Main Theme. Ken's Battle Theme. Ken's Sad Theme.
Chakra Color: Dark Crimson
Nindo: "A true bond can shatter any binding, and I shall use my life to protect those bonds!"

Personality Traits: Driven, although sometimes is Absentminded and shows an Aloofness that hides his inner self, a self that cares deeply about those around him and the bonds he creates. Due to his past pain, he creates a wall around himself, giving him a Stoic personality. When in reality deep down he is as much vulnerable to his emotions as all humans are, and ultimately longs to have an open heart like that of his younger self. Those that do manage to see beneath this surface realize he is truly Affable and usually develops an unbreakable bond with him. He tends to be awkward around girls because of his lack of romantic experience, although this tends to come off as a Distant silence or a false unwillingness to associate when in truth it is a mask for his anxiety about the topic.

Character Preferences:
  • Holds a deep hatred for Shinobi from Konohagakure and especially Sunagakure for their actions in the Eighth Great Shinobi War.
  • Easily gets along with Shinobi from Kirigakure due to their alliance and the Hasu clan's origins in the village.
  • Ken likes to develop rivalries as the two's strength as well as bond grows strong, and as a way to constantly motivate him and push his limits.
  • Has a natural disposition against traditions or doing things "just because" especially if it is wrong.
  • While Ken prizes his strength and seeks to always improve, he knows the dangers of pride and has heard too many tales of shinobi's deaths due to their arrogance. So he prefers to be reserved, never abusing his power or overextending himself.
  • Likes: Absolutely loves BBQ pork and lo mein. Has love for all flowers, especially the lotus. Will often stay up late to watch the moon.
  • Dislikes: Won't touch anything spicy. Is terrified of wasps or any variations besides the peaceful kind bees.
  • Straight Male (although maybe he just hasn't found the right guy yet lmao)

Skills:
Major Skills
  • Kenjutsu Specialist
  • Trained sufficiently in the use of swords to have become effectively ambidextrous.
  • Can track movement at a tier and a Major Advantage higher than they would otherwise be able.
  • Receive seven advantages to their Strength, their Reflex, or their Coordination while performing kenjutsu (+Minor Adv to Str, +1 Tier to Ref, +1 Tier to Coor).
  • Weapon-based chakra flow techniques are treated as if they were a rank higher in power.
  • Ken's selected sword is treated as two ranks of crafting higher, up to Master-crafted, for the purposes of durability.
  • Receive four swords of any kind which, if lost, they can replace upon entering a village (unless that village is hostile to the character).
  • Can create up to S-Rank customs for kenjutsu.
Minor Skills
  • Ninjutsu Adept (Adept Element: Katon)
  • Use three-quarters as many hand seals as would otherwise be required (rounding down, to a minimum of one hand seal) when performing ninjutsu.
  • Ninjutsu of a chosen element required to use only half as many hand seals (which may reduce the number of required hand seals to zero).
  • Receive a Minor Advantage to Coordination for the purposes of aiming, and can perform hand seals as if the Attribute used were a Minor Advantage higher when performing ninjutsu.
  • Receive a pool of 30 Stamina Points that may only be spent on ninjutsu.
  • Can create up to A-Rank customs for ninjutsu.
  • Bladesmith Apprentice
  • Apprenticeship allows the crafting of Apprentice-level items from already existing blueprints. Apprentice-level items take 2 days IRL to create and are of Apprentice-level durability.
Elements:
  • Katon (火遁; Fire Release)

Special Abilities:
  • One-handed Hand Seals: Ken can perform hand seals for jutsus with a single hand, allowing him to combine ninjutsu or genjutsu and kenjutsu or taijutsu simultaneously.
  • Reactive Defense: Ken's Shikotsumyaku kekkei genkai primarily comes out during life or death moments in the form of a subconscious defense such as rib-like bones that protrude to block incoming weapons, or plates of bone to mitigate damage from taijutsu. Once per Topic, Reactive Defense grants a Tier Advantage to Constitution for purposes of defending against the attack.
  • Inner Will: When Ken is fighting someone with a higher Strength than him or in some other way stronger or is a shinobi of Suna or Konoha, he lets go of his reservations and gives the fight his all. Tapping into his inner reserve of power, he gains a Major Advantage to Stamina. He must first witness an example of their Strength or how they're more powerful than him before the bonus is applied.
  • Encapsulating Beauty: When fighting alongside a kunoichi, Ken loses some of his rational thought and his reservations go out the window. In an attempt to impress her, even if it is only subconscious, Ken gains a Major Advantage to Strength.
Flaws:
  • Non-Dominant Hand: When performing hand seals with only one hand, Ken suffers a Tier Disadvantage to hand seal speed.
  • Body's Own Volition: When the reactive defense takes place it consumes 5 points of Stamina, and since it acts upon its own accord it could deplete the last of Ken's chakra and send him into a critical state. Ken must be aware of the attack and it only defends against life-threatening attacks that he is unable to defend against himself. If Ken's natural Constitution drops below Proficient, the Reactive Defense SA cannot trigger. Also due to the odd nature of his body, Iijutsu requires double the chakra to be used on Ken (an S-rank Ijutsu technique would cost 40 SP).
  • Subconscious Underestimation: Due to Ken being raised on the dangers of pride, he actively restrains his power against those whom it is not needed, and doesn't commit to his full extent. This leads to a subconscious underestimation of the opponent, ironically, and Ken slightly lets his guard down. When fighting someone with lower Strength than Ken or less powerful or is a shinobi of Kemuri or Kiri, he receives a Major Disadvantage to Wisdom. He must first witness an example of their Strength or how they're weaker than him before the penalty is applied.
  • Crippling Awkwardness: When fighting alongside a kunoichi, Ken is also more awkward and overly aware of his body movements, leaving himself prone to fumbling or tripping over himself. He receives a Major Disadvantage to Coordination.

  • Body Flicker Technique (瞬身の術­; Shunshin no Jutsu)
    Cost: 2 SP
    Type: Ninjutsu
    Sub-type: Supplementary
    Hand Seals: None
    Description: [Grants a full tier boost to Reflex.] By using the Body Flicker Technique, a ninja can move short to long distances at an almost untraceable speed. To an observer, it appears as if the user has teleported. It is accomplished by using chakra to temporarily vitalise the body and move at extreme speeds.
    Drawbacks: Restricted to unidirectional movement for the dash. The effect of this technique is negated if an opponent can effectively track the user.

    Cost: 2 SP
    Type: Ninjutsu
    Sub-type: Supplementary
    Notation: General Skill
    Hand Seals: Tiger → Boar → Ox
    Description: The technique works by creating an illusionary distraction that the user has replaced themselves with, causing the enemy to target the distraction instead of the user. The technique is prepared ahead of time, and then at some point afterward is activated to replace the user with the distraction object.
    Drawbacks: This technique is usable once per topic.
