    Nara Hari, Genin of the Hidden Leaf
    Name/Rank: Nara Hari (Last name first; Hari meaning either 'Needle' or 'Crystal' depending on Kanji-- he uses both interchangeably)
    Classification: D-Class (Genin)
    Birthdate: 11 May
    Age: 16
    Height: 5'9"
    Weight: 130
    Gender: Male
    Blood type: AB-
    Affiliation/Kage: Konohagakure

    Appearance: Hari wears dark greys and sandy tans, meant for blurring his outline into the background in an Urban environment. He wears the standard lightweight Chainlink ninja-armor that members of his family favor, topped over by a short, Black jacket set with the Nara family symbol on the back. His ninja headband is pulled down around his neck, and set into a dark grey band. Hari's hair is light hazelnut brown, an unusual tone for the Nara family, but not especially odd in and of itself. He keeps it pulled back into a spikey wolf tail, but set close to the base of his neck instead of up in the air like many Naras prefer. Hari stands right at average height, but as with many ninjas conceals impressive physical potential beneath a slim and agile frame. Though he is not as overbearingly 'perfect' as are certain examples within the Leaf Village, he is still found to be quite comely by many females' standards.

    Personality: Hari is rather outgoing and easy to like, especially among members of the opposite sex. He is in no way disrespectful or crude toward women his age, but he holds a very deep appreciation of their charms, and understands that many hold a similar appreciation for his. He has never been in a long-standing relationship, probably because of his inability to refrain from flirting playfully with other women, but he is very mirthful, even mischevous, when dealing with attractive young women around him; he will use his good looks and way with words to woo those he only barely knows on a whim, and even if he knows that they will shut him down, he will quite knavishly keep at it, just for the fun of it.

    Underneath his whimsical, and maybe even shallow exterior, Hari is a deep thinker, analyzing battle strategies and contingency plans almost as fluently as his pickup lines and pillow talk. This is something that he prefers to hide about his personality, however, liking much better to be considered a harmless, if amusing distraction instead of a real competitor.

    Bloodline: Katsugan Bloodline Trait
    This semi-common Bloodline trait can often be found within the ANBU and Hunter-nin of various hidden ninja villages. Focused within the ninja's eyes, where some more flashy Optical bloodlines grant new capabilities to the shinobi's eye, the Katsugan instead improves and enhances the human eye's own innate ability. It drastically improves basic eyesight and visual memory, allowing one to easily spot concealed traps or hidden opponents. High speed sight is also no problem for the Katsugan, able to track even movements that would not be visible at all to normal eyes. However, the Katsugan's one weakness is also its greatest strength; the eyesight of the bearer quickly becomes too good, and direct exposure to light can become painful to the user. Nevertheless, the Katsugan's benefits often outweigh the inconvenience, and have alerted many vulnerable ninja from a deadly ambush.

    The effect of the Katsugan cannot be turned off and neither can its weaknesses, and so users can often be seen wearing thin, semi-seethrough blindfolds to protect their eyes. As well, certain Jutsu have been developed that intentionally render the ninja effectively blind in order to counter the Katsugan's Light Sensitivity.

    Nara Shadow Arts

    Hari is a beneficiary of the Advanced Nara Hidden Arts, specifically concerning the Nara clan's peculiar proficiency with the Shadow Arts.

    Notable Jutsu/Fighting Style: Hari fights with a (just one) specially crafted Dark Iron knuckle blade that has been known to have special properties when interacting with elemental energy. However, he tends to shy away from melee combat, preferring to keep things at a safer distance. He remains open to using his entire ninja arsenal, from throwing weapons to explosive notes, always coming up with an off-the-wall or unexpected solution to a difficult tactical problem. However, he does gravitate toward utilizing Traps and strategies involving luring an opponent onto a battlefield of his own choosing rather than meeting them on their own terms.

    Shadow Arts: Hari has mastered the basic Shadow Possession jutsu, and is currently learning the more advanced iterations of his Family's powerful technique line. He has also been developing arts unique to his own experimentation.

    Ninjutsu: Hari tends to shy away from elemental Jutsu, except for one or two Katon (Fire) element Jutsu that he uses on occasion. Largely his Ninjutsu are utility or Ace-in-the-whole offensive, saved only for great need.

    Taijutsu: Hari has studied two primary Taijutsu styles, but otherwise has average Taijutsu ability (too much work); either of these can be applied to Unarmed combat or using his Knuckle blade. Zentai Bougyo (Total Defense) is a style that works exactly as it sounds, being designed for absolute defense, and relying on the sharpness of his Katsugan to spot and predict incoming attacks. The second, Shinobi Hiken: Dachi -- Shouja (Shinobi Secrets: Stance -- Small Serpent) is a hidden style, mimicking the sudden strike and powerful reflexes of a Serpent for simultaneous attack and defense.

    Genjutsu: For no particular reason, Hari does not have any Genjutsu techniques in his repertoire. This is not because of any difficulty of Affinity, learning, or enacting such techniques, he simply has not had interest in them. This may come as a result of his Katsugan eye finding all but the most convincing of illusions to look cheap and fake-looking, even if they seem quite real to others.

    Chakra Control: Hari has learned and nearly mastered both techniques of Kinobori (Tree Walking) and Tadayou (Water Strider), as well as a third technique, Kawa no Yoroi (Skin Armor) that uses chakra to harden his Skin for defense.

    Kirisaku, Genin of Hidden Mist
    Name/Rank: Kirisaku (Meaning 'To Sharpen the Mist')
    Classification: D-Class (Genin)
    Birthdate: 28 Feb
    Age: 13
    Height: 5'4"
    Weight: 120
    Gender: Male
    Blood type: A+
    Affiliation/Kage: Hidden Mist


    Kirisaku's usual dress consists mostly of muted blues and greys that, by design, blur into the ever-present mists that saturate the aptly named Land of Mists. Two of his most notable features are his boyishly appealing looks and his always-damp hair; though it is quite stylish, his hair never seems to dry out all the way from the mists surrounding the Land of Waves. Kirisaku wears a distinctive white silken scarf at all times (he has never been seen without it) and also has a unique charm bracelet of Electric blue crystal and water-polished stones, some engraved in black with little designs and runes. The main charm is a polished blue magatama stone.

    Personality: Kirisaku (or just 'Kiri', as he is known to some) is a very pleasant, outgoing, 'people person' type of young ninja. He is very polite with his superiors, very kind to his equals, and very understanding of all, regardless of position of any sort. Kiri has a highly developed sense of empathy, placing himself in others' shoes and seeing things from their angle, sometimes almost to the point of seeming to read their minds. He is extremely considerate of others' needs and desires, and is constantly aware of himself and others, trying to be as helpful and useful to his teammates as he can be.

    Kirisaku comes from a medium-wealthy family, a rare thing in the impoverished Land of Waves, but he has seen his fare share of troubles. His mother was a quiet, gentle, extremely delicate woman who Kiri loves dearly; his father was an alcoholic as well as a man of considerable stress from his occupation, and was not very kind to either Kirisaku or his mother. One day, possibly for the better, the man disappeared with nothing more than a note that was found at their house; with him he took a large part of their minor wealth, leaving the two of them saddled with debts that they did not even know had been tied to their name. In the end the two fled back to her Father's house, where they were taken in with open arms, supported, nursed back to health, and from where Kirisaku spent the rest of his Childhood before joining the Ninja academy.

    Despite his very personable nature, Kirisaku spends a lot of time alone. Much of his alone time is spent thinking, practicing his Ninja arts, playing a variety of Wind instruments, or carving new ones himself. Seldom can he be found without either a Shakuhachi or a Paixaio, and can often be heard playing drifting, lilting music, even when he doesn't know there's anyone around to hear.

    Bloodline: None.

    Notable Jutsu/Fighting Style: Kirisaku strays away from fighting at all whenever he can help it, but once battle has been joined he utilizes a Battle Wire, a Shinobi gauntlet that produces many fine, irresistibly sharp iron wires to battle opponents. This particular fighting style prefers to keep its enemies a little further back than arm's reach, and so he also possesses various means of ensuring distance is kept between himself and his opponent.

    Sealing Techniques: Kirisaku has received basic instruction in utilizing specially made inks and specific Jutsus to enact a variety of effects through the use of Calligraphy and Ninja Arts. The most commonly used of these techniques involves the Sealing of inanimate objects into the pages of a Scroll for retrieval at a later time. He also utilizes Advanced Seals, pre-scribed pages similar to an Exploding Tag, but that channel chakra for different uses.

    Ninjutsu: Kirisaku employs equal parts Suiton (Water) and Fuuton (Wind) Jutsus, including such classics as the Kazegama no Jutsu (Wind Sythe Jutsu) and Kirigakure no Jutsu (Hidden Mist Jutsu), though both are admittedly closer to Novice levels. He also has learned a few techniques for Utility, including a mid/low level Camouflaging technique that he uses to great effect.

    Taijutsu: Kirisaku's Taijutsu abilities largely consist of techniques concerning the Kousen Ryu (Iron Wire Style) along with his Battle Wire, but he also keeps a few surprises saved for a rainy day (or, rainier than usual). Among others, he knows the Shundou (Instant Displacement) technique, a high-speed burst of movement that allows him to travel faster than the (normal) human eye can track over very short distances.

    Genjutsu: Kirisaku is not terribly comfortable using Intermediate level or higher Genjutsu techniques, though he has an undeniable proficiency with them. He is capable of simple tricks like confusing the specific motions of his hands when doing ninja hand seals with Douta no Jutsu (Hand Motion Confususion), all the way up to more devastating Jutsus like some lower level Magen (Demonic Mirage) techniques, for example the Magen - Narakumi no Jutsu (Demonic Mirage - Living Hell Technique). Many will find that his Genjutsu influences are more difficult to resist than a Genin of his level would typically be capable of, but he is not quite Genius level even with Gen, and is not that special.

    Chakra Control: Kiri has an innate understanding and ability with Chakra Control, having learned to apply it in creative ways even past the basic Chakra Control techniques. However, he has not spent as much time studying and practicing Chakra Control jutsu as he has other categories, though this comes more from not having a dedicated teacher in this area than not having ability or interest.
