Nara Hidzume

Nara Hidzume
Genius Intelligence Operative
"I'll protect my friends and my village from the pain of losing those they love!"


DescriptionHidzume is average in both height and build. He wears his black hair tied behind his head like most Nara men and has purple eyes. He is usually dressed in an olive green hoodie, with his headband sewn into the hood, and dark grayish brown pants. Under his hoodie he wears a short sleeved mesh shirt.

BackstoryHidzume spent most of his young life following around his father, Sokumen. Sokumen was a gifted medical-nin who participated in much of the medical research that the Nara clan conducted when testing medical ingredients. His fondest memories are of following his father around the secret medical storage facility, the smell of various herbs and powders filling his nose, while the medical-nin conducted inventory or filled orders. His mother Atama, a gifted Jonin respected by many, was often away on missions but Hidzume cherished the time they got to spend together. She taught him the Shadow Possession Jutsu and was there the first time he successfully used it. The war and the events leading up to it changed the tempo and focus of his life greatly.

He was at the storage facility with his father, helping package medicines for the shinobi with more active roles in the war, when they were told that Atama had died. The news devastated them. Sokumen became driven, pouring his every waking moment into developing and using his medical jutsu. Many in the clan commented that the intensity of his focus was a shield from grief. Atama's death had the opposite effect on her son. All of the medical knowledge and skill that his father possessed hadn't kept his mother from dying. Hidzume decided that to really protect the ones you love, you had to neutralize threats before medical jutsu were needed.

Sokumen's focus left him little time to train his son but other members of the clan were more than happy to take up the title of Sensei for a talented young shinobi. Hidzume found himself with an abundance of teachers and used that to his advantage. The Nara Clan was known for the intellect and insight of their shinobi for good reason. His skill developed quickly under the guidance of those around him.

Hidzume started at the Academy as soon as he was old enough and excelled. His natural talent and desire to learn as much as possible were quickly noticed by his instructors. It was no surprise when he easily passed the graduation test.

RP SampleThe sun shone brightly through the leaves of the Nara Clan Forest, dappling the soft forest floor with light. Hidzume crouched on a low branch, his silhouette obscured by the foliage around him, and stared down at his mother. She was leaning out from behind a tree about sixty feet away, her eyes flitting from cover to cover trying to spot him. "Your stealth skills have improved little hoof. I didn't hear you clopping up a tree this time." She stepped away from the tree and cautiously made her way to the next, her feet barely seeming to touch the ground. Atama's light feet were legendary among the Nara Clan. His father always said that her grace was what first caught his interest.

She's within range. This is no time to get distracted! I'll get her this time for sure! Hidzume focused his chakra, enhanced by the seal of the rat, and watched his shadow elongate toward his mother. The Shadow Possession Jutsu was the most basic of the jutsu passed down among his clan but, as talented a child as everyone said he was, he had never been able to catch his mother with it. His father told him that she had been hard for him to catch, as well. Concentrate... His shadow snaked down the tree and creeped toward Atama. It was so slow! He redoubled his focus, clenching his fingers and almost ruining his seal. His shadow started to creep faster. His mother knelt down to inspect the ground.

"No hoof prints either! You really are improving. Your father must be training you while I'm away." Atama smiled just as his shadow connected with hers and she froze. Years from now that smile would become one of his favorite memories of her. The joy conveyed in that smile would drive him to excel in everything he did. At this moment, however, pride in his accomplishment filled him. I did it! I got her!

The branch swayed in the breeze and the leaves rustled behind him. He couldn't wait to tell his father. Except what was this feeling? There was something trying to prick his bubble of happiness. What was it? Wait... He realized his mistake. There was no breeze in the forest today. The air was still. Hidzume jumped, turning in the air and drawing a shuriken. His mother was leaning against the trunk of the tree behind him, sharing his branch without him knowing. How long has she been there? His eyes flashed to the ground below in time to see the clone of his mother vanish in a puff of smoke.

"That was very good, my little shinobi. You caught the famed Atama Shadow-Step! Your father is the only other man to have done so." Her shadow shot outward as he landed, snaring him. "But I caught you back! So I guess it's a draw." Her laugh filled the forest and she released him, striding forward and patting him on the head.

Hidzume sulked. He was sure that he had caught her. "How long were you behind me? You let me catch the clone, didn't you?" He couldn't continue to pout while she smiled like that, though, and a small smile turned up one corner of his mouth before his questions were done.

"Just long enough, little hoof. I meant what I said. You've gotten much better and that was a wonderfully executed Shadow Possession. Let's go tell your father. He'll probably make us something special for dinner!" She leapt down from the tree, landing with a grace that few could replicate. "First one home gets extra dessert!" she called back to him, starting to run.

Dad makes the best dessert! He rushed down from the tree and took off after her. "No fair! You got a head start!"

One thing I want to address quickly. There have been some concerns about possible overlapping roles. To this I say: Don't worry and just make the character you want to make. This game is already showing me I will need multiple genin squads, so if such an event does happen, it will make the team building process that much easier on my end.

This sounds interesting. I'll take a nibble.

Character CreationName: Hebi Asuga
Clan: Hebi Clan
Class: Weapon Specialist: Battle Dancer Form
Background: Traveler
right-aligned image


Description: Standing at about 5’6” Asuga is a young woman with a calm and level-headed personality yet can give a clear signal that ‘Oh no you don’t’ with a simple stern sideways look. She’s also a very confident person and it shows in way she walks and in her body language. Her steps are measured and she walks like someone who knows where they are going. Her body is relaxed, while her posture is straight giving the feeling that she can spring into action at a moment’s notice.

Asuga’s long black hair is always drawn up into a pony tail, held in place with a black tie and two large hair pins in the shape of snakes. Her eyes are as black as her hair and her skin is a dark brown tan from spending a lot of time outdoors. Her build, though not muscular, is lean and athletic like that of a dancer. She always wears black, either in everyday casual wear or the armor she dons. In the case of her black leather armor, both sleeves bear the image of stylized snakes on them and she always carries two weapons, one being a Katana. On her back, between her shoulder blades, is a tattoo of a white snake, head facing upwards and it's tail pointing downwards, swimming in water. On the back of the snake is a elegantly dressed heavenly woman playing the biwa.

Puh, there is a definite tendency to go the taijutsu and wepaon specialist route. Time to say goodbye to my Hyuuga taijutsu character and bring some ninjutsu into the mix.

Inuzuka Hitoshi
right-aligned image

Name: Inuzuka Hitoshi

Clan:Inuzuka

Class: Medical Nin, Combat Medic

Background: Genius

Ambition: To live up to the lofty expectations placed upon him due to his high intellect and natural aptitude. No matter how high anyone else's expectations of him are Hitoshi demands twice as much from himself.

Goal: Hitoshi has a personal goal as well. His older brother Enji has been missing since the war and he wants to discover his ultimate fate to give his parents some sense of closure.

Description: Hitoshi is a bit shorter than average but has a stout, muscular build. Like most members of his clan he has the red talon cheek marks and a scruffy appearance. He has an unkempt mop of dark hair, dark piercing eyes and a demeanor that suggests he is usually a hundred miles away and lost in his own thoughts. When something catches his attention or he is on a mission however he has a laser like focus on the job at hand. Can be more than a little fierce if in combat or under pressure of some sort.

Backstory:
Hitoshi is the youngest child in a large family born to an aging, retired ninja and his stay at home wife. Of the whole family unit only he and his older brother Enji took up the ninja mantle and attended the academy. Of the two of them Enji was the more promising ninja and, being several years older and was already in the field during the time of the war. Sadly, he was sent on a mission and his whole team was reported as missing and assumed killed in the field. Neither his parents nor Hitoshi has ever quite come to terms with the loss.

The younger ninja son threw himself into his studies, gravitating towards the healing arts to try to keep any future team members (i.e. pack mates in his mind) from meeting a similar fate. While a strong fighter in his own right his true calling is as a healer and he has thrown himself completely into the role. Early indications are that he has the potential to go far.

He seems somewhat shy and withdrawn to most people, seeming to prefer the company of his dog Taeko to that of most people. That is more of a front than anything else as he has built up emotional walls to keep most people away. He secretly yearns to be on a team of his own and bond with new friends and do the the work he was born to do. Part of him though fears his parents being hurt again is something happens to him or of his team being hurt if he isn't as good as he hopes to be. It is an internal struggle he will need to wrestle with as he grows.


RP Sample:

Taeko paced restlessly nearby. Hitoshi turned from the scrolls he was studying and fixed the dog with a sympathetic look. While he could stay holed up all day studying the same could not be said for his dog.

"Soon boy," he said in a hushed tone. "A little patience please. I'm almost done."

That wasn't quite the truth. There were enough scrolls and tomes here about healing to keep him busy for days, if not weeks. As much as he felt the need to cram every last bit of knowledge they held into his head though he couldn't ignore his partner's needs. Or his own either. While something of a book worm by nature the young ninja also had to continue to hone his physical gifts as well. What was it the sensei had said? All things in moderation and balance? How was he to find the right balance though?

A large part of him wanted to run free just as Taeko did. He wanted to fight and carouse and raise a little hell like all his other age mates did. Then there was the other part of him. The more responsible and bookish side that knew one day he would be called upon to save his pack mates in the heat of battle. If he wasn't ready they might die, just as it was said his brother had. These two parts of Hitoshi always argued with each other and sometimes he had trouble keeping them in balance.

As he pondered this, his mind drifting deeper and deeper into his own thoughts, he felt a tug on his pants leg. Glancing down in surprise he saw that Taeko had take the initiative and was tugging on him in an effort to move the transition to play time along a bit faster. So much for patience he supposed. But he couldn't be mad. It was the dogs nature, just as sure as it was part of his own. It was time to indulge that nature just a bit. That was the way to keep it all in balance.

"Alright boy, I'm coming," he said, setting aside the scroll. "I'll race you to the practice field!"

With that he was off like a shot with Taeko in hot pursuit.



Ooc:Found a picture. It's probably yet another artist conception of Kiba but I'm not sure I care anymore...lol. As long as it's a good representation of Hitoshi and no one cares about it I wont worry. Have updated the application a bit and hopefully it is suitable. Apologies for any inconsistencies between this and the Naruto universe as I am still learning it.

Good news everyone! I have some further updates for you all. Now that the game has been officially approved by the powers that be, I'm comfortable setting a cut-off date: Friday, July 9th at Midnight EST.

And, as also requested, the Ability scores will be generated using the Point-Buy system detailed on page 12.

These details have also been updated into the OP

Good deal. I have put some finishing touches and edits on Hitoshi. Unless you find some inconsistency between it and the Naruto univers I've missed then he is done.

Thanks for running this!

Is there a certain way we should go about making character sheets? I'm aware that this website has a character sheet function (if I'm not mistaken), but I don't know if it's built to handle the Shinobi Handbook.

Theoretically it should still be fine. Most of the sheet is custom fillable, and you can even edit the skills and ability modifiers to suit the altered system. Mostly the site sheet is useful still because it does the math for you.

Oh, thank goodness! I wasn't super sure about that since I haven't really used it yet, but I feel a little more confident in my ability to do so with that knowledge. Granted, I don't know if I should start making my proper sheet ASAP or not, so I think I'll hold off until given the go-ahead by EmmaRae
