Appearance: (Add later)
•Skittish At First
•Not Easily Impressed
•Guarded Around Elders
Features: Iyasu tends to speak in a monotone voice unless rarely excited, or enamored. This doesn't mean he doesn't have more of an opinion than he lets on, but after a few years of being withdrawn and feeling like he doesn't belong, emotion became difficult to find in his outward actions and voice.
He also has an odd fascination\arousal at blood as its been so long since he has seen his own.
Iyasu finds it much easier to connect with animals than people. He loves them and has a knack for charming them himself.
He is not a violent person, thus has little interest in harming others or purposefully expanding his "heart collection". He wouldn't waste one, but won't seek one.
Iyasu often wears A large cloak to help hide his scars. The only place in his body not covered is his face, which bears one thing scar under his left eye reaching down to his chest. Otherwise he is quite handsome.
Being naturally quiet Iyasu is a great listener and therefore has a strong memory of people and conversations.
History: Iyasu is in his mid 20s hailing from the stone village. The first years of his life were typical for an only child. He had caring parents, not ninja, simply working folks. His mom stayed home as well as occasionally cooked for those around the village who were unable to provide for themselves and his father worked the land. No worries, often running about the village with other children, carefree and innocent Iyasu never thought much of war or fear. The ninja life beyond his mindset. However there are those ready to prey on such bliss. A mysterious man watched one day as the kids played, and Iyasu's light orange hair made him stick out. This man was among those hungry for power and knowledge, and this requires test subjects. That night to the news of his distraught parents, Iyasu didn't make it home.
He woke on an operating table. Restrained and afraid he cried out. As he did he noticed movement in the corner of the room. He looked over to see a flutter. A rather beautiful but beaten black raven was chained to a perch in the corner. To Iaysu's surprise the creature spoke, telling him he was just as trapped and had nothing to fear from him. He learned he was in a "playroom" for a sick man and his assistant who in their old age were researching immortality. This man had come across scrolls detailing the ability to steal one's heart and add it to your self, and by perpetually swapping hearts and keeping new ones, one could stay alive past trauma or age. The man used this raven to aid in minor healing of his subjects, as it had some skills of its own, to keep them useful as long as possible.
Soon the man and woman returned and began preparation to try and use this shady power on Iyasu. If he survived the jutsu detailed in the scroll and successfully gained a heart, he would be disposed of and the man would move on with gaining the power himself. They began performing some ijutsu technique on the young boy who screamed in intense pain. Certain it was over he closed his eyes, young and unable to fight back. he lost consciousness. He woke some time later to see the horrified face of the man above him. The woman explained things were not as they expected and the benefit of the additional heart seemed to have a side effect. He looked down to see his covered in scars and stitches. He screamed and in doing so exerted his body, and his arm... to his surprise detached. But the connection and control remained. He was able to reach his restraint and unclasp it. Jumping up he pushed the man who fell over the stacks of books and scrolls behind him clearly not fighters or expecting this the woman moved to help the man as Iyasu moved to the door. A split second thought entered his mind though, and he turned to help the raven. The two fled, Iyasu following the bird out of the house's basement.
Finally free and now scarred and hearing a strangers heart, he breathed. He found his way back to the village and his home, but his parents were gone. Apparently distraught they had gone looking for him. Says later and no sign of them he looked towards other adults in the village. He learned they had met a group of bandits outside The village who took advantage of them being defenseless. His parents didn't make it. Now and orphan and close to the right age, Iyasu decided to enter the academy. From then on He was much quieter and more of a loner. He studied and graduated at the average age of twelve, keeping the secret of what happened to him close. He was still unsure what he was now and why his body seemed to be filled with stitches instead of blood, and unsure what others would think afraid of being labelled a freak. During these years the boy and bird became close. Iyasu learned it was a Ninja raven and was able to enter a summoning contract after some study. For a while it was the only thing he got close to.
After being put on a squad of Genin it became harder to hide his condition, and truth be told he never really explored its abilities. During a training session he ability to separate body parts and control the stitches within impressed and startled his teammates and worried His sensei. After finally revealing the story his sensei helped him discover the mask he had on his back sense them was indeed the heart that had been implanted, and seemed to let Iyasu access Lightning release, a chakra nature he did not naturally possess. Learning more about his condition he was actually able to flourish as a ninja. With more elements at his disposal than many his age and learning how to use his now unique body It's so helped his team pass the Chunin exams rather easily. After, one of his team was killed in battle, while another retired to live as a shopkeeper. Only Iyasu remained a ninja, working towards stopping others who my prey on the weak like he once was. As he neared adulthood he was promoted to Jonin, as he had proven a reliable shinobi with unique talents. He was surprised as he still doesn't see his own potential. Currently he still serves the current Kage of his village, and is ready to do what ever he can for his village. He also hopes to make more connections and finally escape his years of being secluded.
