    The picture actually is Hoshiko so there are no discrepancies, only details that are mite hard to see. Like the twin seashell hair clips that her father gave to her or that her teeth have been filed to dainty points. Also the stick in her mouth is that of a lollipop stick.

    Personality: Hoshiko is a bit of an anomaly among the Seven Swordsmen of the Mist, missing-nin in general, and even Kirigakure because of her generally docile nature and utter lack of anything resembling normal intelligence in her head. Back when she was being trained as a ninja, others would joke she should position her forehead protector over her heart since there wasn't anything she needed in her head. She was the one laughing when she passed Kirigakure's bloody genin exam with more then flying colors (killing her opponent, a chuunin teacher, and several other genin before she realized she was only supposed to kill her opponent). Being dim doesn't separate her from other missing-nin though, most usually are idiots to forsake their villages, what does set her apart is a child-like nature.

    Sweets (especially lollipops), brightly colored objects, hot food, and other things can deter Hoshiko from whatever she might be doing, but underestimating her because of this has turned out very poorly for some people. Once she gets riled up for a fight, there are few things that can calm her down and she usually becomes so dead-set on 'winning' that it becomes self-destructive. Well...for someone else it'd be self-destructive.
    Bloodline: There is some debate about if Hoshiko has a bloodline or not, and on that matter she has had precious little information to offer.

    Notable Jutsu:
    • Suiton: Hōmatsu Rappa (Water Release: Violent Bubble Wave) - Hoshiko expels a huge wave of bubbles from her mouth that is capable of washing away most attacks, such as oil and fire. It is also effective as a smokescreen in a pinch. However it lacks offensive punch.
    • Suiton: Suishōha (Water Release: Water Shockwave) - This technique allows Hoshiko to make a spiraling vortex of water from the moisture in the air. The vortex then proceeds to explode from the top in the form of a wave, which Hoshiko can control.
    • Suirō no Jutsu (Water Prison Technique) - This jutsu is used to trap a victim inside a virtually inescapable sphere of water. The only downside to this technique is that the user must keep at least one arm inside the sphere at all times in order for the victim to remain imprisoned. Clones can be used in place of the actual person, provided that the clone is the one that performed the technique. This jutsu can't be performed without a sufficiently large body of water to supply the water for it.

    Hoshiko has also developed a unique brand of ninjutsu known as Ritual ninjutsu. However, she rarely uses it and little is known about it other then the fact a Ritual ninjutsu takes a lot of time to complete.


    Ninjutsu: While Hoshiko knows some bizarre and unpredictable ninjutsu and is able to swamp a battlefield, she isn't really focused on perfecting her ninjutsu. Instead it just seems to be part of her skill-set, one she doesn't acknowledge much.

    Genjutsu: Enough for very minor illusions, but they are easy to pick out and almost elementary.

    Taijutsu: As one of the Seven Swordsmen of the Mist, it is all but a given that Hoshiko must be talented at kenjutsu and in that regard they are only half-right. Her skill in taijutsu isn't exactly that great, but she is a genius of it the likes of which might only come along once a generation. Despite her admittedly dim nature, Hoshiko analyzes the taijutsu of others on an instinctual level and reacts as such to them as they should. Combined with her, frankly, ridiculous durability and wild (if un-practiced and un-cultured) sword-fighting style and Hoshiko becomes a lethal taijutsu shinobi.

    Special Abilities:

    Daisuijiken: As one might imagine, this is the name of her sword. It's name such because of the kappa-head on the pommel of the weapon and because of the fact that the blade is actually hollow on the inside. Inside of this hollow are numerous storage seals containing nothing but water which, when released, pours out of the holes along the blade. Aside from providing water for Suiton techniques, Hoshiko can release a torrent of water as she swings the blade to drastically increase it's weight and momentum. She has also been seen using it to cut wood and food but never sharpening the blade which is a mystery to others, even the other Swordsmen of the Mist.

    Durability: While the exact mechanics behind this simply aren't known, none can deny that Hoshiko earns her name of 'Immortal of the Mist' with her insane resistance to damage. This isn't to say that she doesn't get hurt, but rather the wounds rarely seem to actually bother her with the number of times Hoshiko has been incapacitated by her wounds able to be counted on one hand. The simple fact is that no matter what is thrown at her or how badly wounded she is, Hoshiko will just keep coming until she has finished what she set out to do. Poisons rarely work, she's never gotten sick, even jutsu that would somehow physically debilitate Hoshiko have a tendency to fail miserably. People suspect some kinjutsu or bloodline is responsible, or even an unknown trait of Daisuijiken, but Hoshiko's answer has always been the same. "I dunno, it just doesn't seem to hurt or be that bad an injury."

    Speed: Definitely not the fastest ninja on the block, Hoshiko's speed is only average for an A-rank shinobi with above average reflexes. Against true speedy ninja though, she simply lets them wear themselves out first before moving in for the kill.

    Strength: Definitely strong, Hoshiko doesn't cross into brutal powerhouse territory either. Much of the sheer strength of her sword-swings comes from the sudden weight of lots and lots of water being released but even without that, it'd just be reckless to get into a contest of strength with her unless one was certain of themselves.
