"Daimyo of Gold Country, Sage of Ego"
[I Am, therefore I'll Think]
General Information Age: 100
Weight: 180 lbs.
- Face/head: Aimi's face is nothing short of beautiful for a male. His face is oval shaped, ending in a rounded, lightly cleft chin that juts out slightly, giving his jaw a strong look. He is clean shaven. His golden blond hair is long, soft and light in the wind, reaching down to just past his shoulders. His eyes are a sad blue color. His eyebrows are thin and curved downward slightly, only implicating more that happy\sad look upon his face. His nose is a smaller one, barely even extending out past his face. It is almost flat, but in an over all complimentary way. His mouth, a moderate size, houses a pair of small oval shaped lips. Upon his forehead is the distinctive symbol of his clan, the two red circles encompassed by black, which he wears proudly.
- Body: Aimi stands at a tall five feet eight inches with a slender, toned body and pale skin, as though he still had the skin he had worn when he was first born. His shoulders are broad and dip inward slightly, making a sort of U shape between themselves and his slender neck. He is very well in shape, his body an almost perfect balance of muscle and leanness. Certain features are quite feminine in nature - his long legs, curvy hips and smooth skin being the most prominent of these features.
- Notable Features: Aimi has perfectly smooth skin all over his body, unmarred by any scars thanks to his regenerative ability. The bottoms of his feet are very tough, almost like leather.
- General: Aimi Kaguya's personality has undergone a radical change from his time in the spirit world. No longer governed by deadly sins or heavenly vices, Aimi is now a man who has achieved something akin to enlightenment. He is calm, quiet, stern, driven and assertive. He has a focus and a wisdom about him that his young looking face would never give away. He carries himself with such an absolute moral assurity that it's infectious; he practically radiates an attitude of 'knowing what is best'. This does not mean that he is constantly telling others that they are wrong or that he believes he knows everything, but rather that he feels he has found the only proper way for a human being to carry themselves and there is nothing that can sway him from this belief.
Aimi is a selfish man, but this does not mean that he disregards others. Rather is means that he is self centered, caring primarily about his own needs and feelings before extending to any friends, allies or compatriots he might have. He is also a man of unmatched ego. His sense of individuality simply cannot be challenged and he believes wholeheartedly in the individual first and foremost. Individual ability, thus, is extremely important to him and he accepts nothing less than what he considered nearly perfect from himself. He stresses this virtue of selfishness towards others as well, encouraging them to be the best that they can possibly be. In this way he is very much a mentor or father figure. He lives life creating his own rules and refuses to live for the sake of someone else. By prioritizing his own happiness above all others, he has rejected and thus prevented himself from being emotionally unbalanced. He smiles often, he sees the good in things, he's happy to interact with others, to help those as he sees fit - so long as it is his decision to do so, and not the whim of another.
All this to say that Aimi has matured - but that doesn't mean he has abandoned who he was either. In a way he is a man split into two distinct personalities. Though no longer ruled by them, he is just as prideful, wrathful, lustful of power and so on as he ever was. These aspects of his personality are simply subdued and suppressed by the now more dominant parts that he has had much longer to cultivate. In short, his 'fuse' to who he used to be is simply much, much longer than it once was. Reaching the point where he is as angry and murderous as he once was constantly is quite the struggle, but should someone push him to that point, they should pray to whatever higher power they believe in, for holding back such volatile personality traits does not come at a light cost.
- Hopes/Dreams: Having obtained many of his previous hopes and dreams, Aimi now dreams of the day that his Land of Gold is considered a major world power like the Great Five, of making Kingakure as village to be feared and be in awe of, to create a new generation of shinobi that are more driven, more inspired, more excellent than any other ninja village! He dreams, also, of the day when the whims of spirits are no longer a cause for concern in the life of human beings, of the utter exile or utter extinction of the spirits, including the Genma, and secretly, in his heart of hearts, the day that humanity can be united as one in this cause of Exterminatus.
- Fears: Aimi Kaguya fears very little anymore. The eradication of his village? The loss of his people? His nation? All would sting, but temporarily. So long as he remains living, he knows he can rebuild. No, instead what Aimi fears is a loss of his identity, of his sense of self, and of a certain shadow roaming about the world...
- Combat Mentality: Anymore, Aimi attempts to avoid combat when at all possible, preferring to talk things out and try to come to some sort of understanding with the person he is facing rather than bringing it to blows. Once. If this one chance is rejected, he will not hesitate to become the most dominant force on the battlefield by any means necessary. This 'one chance' mentality does not apply to spirits, however. In the matter of all things kami, Aimi's policy is expel or exterminate first, ask questions later. He does not tolerate a spirit to live under any circumstances if he can help it.

S-Ranked Special Weapon
Description: A weapon to end worlds. A fragment of creation itself. A left-over mistake by the gods. A twisted mockery of anything living. All could be said of the Worldslayer. It’s origins are a mystery, ultimately to never be truly known but what is known is thus: It is ancient, far older than the creation of the first blade. It would not be unreasonable to assume that this is what all blades were based upon, in fact. There is a presence to it, a force or entity unknown which has no name, is silent and is malevolent in nature but subdued. It is a relic recognized only by the oldest and most powerful of spirits, it’s true nature and origin perhaps known only by the Genma themselves. Whatever it truly is, wherever it truly came from, whatever its’ true purpose might be, it is in the hands of Aimi Kaguya now, to do with what he wills.
Worldslayer is a “sword”, in that it is a bladed weapon with a singular handle. This is where the similarities end, however. The handle of Worldslayer is solid metal, as is the rest of the weapon, and twisted into a loose coil that ends in a ring. The guard is triangular in shape with dull, short, rounded arms hanging downward. At each angle of the triangle there is a thin blade that, like the handle, is twisted into a spiral. Each spiraling blade is further twisted over each other while never touching one another. Each blade is exactly 91 centimeters long and ends in a tapered point. The entire weapon is dark like unpolished iron with bits of what appears like red rust on either end of it and along the edges of the blades in patchy, uneven amounts. Despite its’ shabby appearance, Worldslayer does not have any rust upon it nor does it seem able to accumulate rust.
Worldslayer as a weapon has 50 Strength, making it nearly indestructible save for the strongest of forces known.
Abilities: Everlasting - Worldslayer is a leftover fragment of creation. It has always been, since the beginning, long before any life existed in the world and it will remain long after life has ceased. Should Worldslayer break for any reason or by any means the broken parts will turn to ash and vanish, fading into the void from whence it came. Then, over the next few days, Worldslayer will reform itself. So long as a part of it exists, the rest will reform around it. Should for any reason the weapon be completely "destroyed", it will reform again somewhere in the world, waiting to be found. Should the weapon break in a thread it remains broken for the remainder of the thread only to reform at the start of another thread.
Primary Affinity: Katon
Abilities and Concentrations
|First Ability||Regeneration - Through various medical experiments, triggered by his initial surgery and the knowledge of it, Aimi has gained the ability to passively regenerate his body, following the standard Regeneration Abilities rules. This ability of regeneration is potent enough to even regrow limbs and internal organs given enough time. Additionally, his body no longer ages in the conventional sense, giving him a form of pseudo immortality but causes a permanent -5 Stamina determent.|
|Second Ability||Death Bone Pulse - A byproduct of the treatment for a congenital disorder, Death Bone Pulse is a Kaguya’s ability to control the ossification of their bodies to rapidly replace, grow, or produce bone from their bodies. This process is able to be consciously controlled as if it was a muscle. This allows the Kaguya to not only turn any part of their bodies into bone, but to grow new bones, or additional bones, or simply fashion things out of bone. This skill is actually a natural process that can be consciously controlled, making it a form of taijutsu, meaning all Kaguya techniques utilize the users Speed and Strength.|

Aimis' story begins like most Kaguya's stories do, within the Kirigakure village. He was born to an ordinary set of miners who lived within the village, though they worked outside of it. The day that Aimi was born was the happiest day of their lives, though it was quickly snuffed out as they realized not long after his birth that he had the deadly congenial disease of the Kaguya clan.
For months his parents agonized over the choice, knowing the sort of life he would be forced to live if he were to be given over to the clan. Eventually, they could wait no longer as the disease approached it's critical point and took their child before the Kaguya elders. Aimi's parents made the hardest decision of their life to give up their child. Aimi was taken in. The surgery took place on his first birthday. His present that year was the gift of life.
Aimi was quick to recover from his surgery, getting up and walking within weeks after having temporarily lost the use of his legs. The Kaguya elders took it as a good sign, and as he grew up, they were pleased to see that he was a strong boy in both spirit and body. They trained him, molded him, made him into a boy warrior as all members of the clan were required to do. He was never told about his mother and father living within the village and was raised throughout his childhood in believing that his adoptive parents were all that he had. But, Aimi's one 'weakness' in the eyes of the Kaguya was his kindness.
This kindness was assassinated by the end of his academy exams, where he was forced to kill a prisoner, condemned to die. The event devastated young Aimi, and for many years as he was struck by puberty and he rapidly grew into the man he became, he would view the world as dark and twisted, full of potential but entirely out of his reach. He channeled his energy, his anger, his suffering into his work and the perfection of his mind and body, growing strong and staying strong. At thirteen he picked up a sword seriously for the first time and dedicated himself to learning how to use it. Years before this, he had been assigned to a squad and regularly went on missions with them. On his off time, when he wasn't sent out for a mission or wasn't working on perfecting his body, he would read; books, scrolls, newspapers, anything he could get his hand on. He learned quickly that a mind needed books like a sword needed a whetstone.
At fifteen, he participated in the chunin exams, and failed. He lost his match against the genin that he'd been paired up against to fight and so failed his exams, while his team mates went on to pass. He was later paired with another team and, a year later, put through the exams again. He failed once more, for the same reason. For the third time he was put onto a new team of genin, now the oldest member at seventeen. During the year between exams, though, he trained more furiously and became more adept at the art of being a shinobi than either of his team mates could hope to become at their age. On his third try, when once again faced with another genin, he was victorious. Overwhelmingly so.
He beat them into submission by beating them within an inch of their life, using guile, skill and raw power to his advantage. The Jounin watching him later told him that "He should have killed the poor sap; it would have been kinder." It was these words that sparked a second metamorphosis in him, though this one much slower burning. Over the course of the next 4 years, as he continued to train and work and, eventually, take and pass the Jounin exams, an idea was brimming in the back of his mind that grew like cancer. Then, not long after his twenty first birthday, the cancerous ideal burst forth in his mind like a paper bomb, and suddenly everything was clear to him. This explosion of thought is what lead to his current state of mind, as well as being reunited with his parents.
Of his own volition, on his own time, Aimi began to seek out his birth parents, having been told years back that his real parents lived, or at least had lived when he was a baby, in the Kirigakure. It took him a little over a week to find them, and the reunion was touching, to say the least. His mother was outside of her home, sweeping the walkway when she looked up and saw him. He saw in her eyes his own, and she froze when she saw him. When she ran forward and hugged him, Aimi thought it was the happiest moment of his life.
They caught up, the two of them, while they waited for his father to get home. His father, he learned, worked as an ore miner in a mine roughly fifteen miles away from the village. He learned that she had given up mining after having him and worked as a habachi chef in the village these days, having been freed from slavery some years back. He was told how they had watched him grow up from afar, seeing him after he graduated from the academy, when he'd run around the village with his team mates growing up, how they'd witnessed him passing the chunin exams, hearing of him from a couple of shinobi she served that he had passed the Jounin exams and everything else that she could get when she could get it. It was around the end of this explanation, well into the night, that Aimi's father came home, and what a giant of a man he was! His father easily towered over him by a foot, his mother by a foot and a half! Aimi had never felt more secure in his life than when his father held him in his arms for the first time.
From that day on, Aimi would meet with his family whenever he could. Being a Jounin, as well as a full grown man, he paid little mind to if the Kaguya clan elders cared that he saw his family or not. He was loyal to the clan who had saved his life and made him strong, and he had found a love for his family he never knew he had. He grew to know them, and they to know him, and all the while he continued working as a shinobi, his efforts now fueled with the idea that in going out on missions he was protecting not just the village and the clan but also his mother and father.
As a Jounin he went on many different missions of all sorts and, now feeling secure in his position of power within the village, started to branch out more in his social life. He took on several younger shinobi under his wing, teaching personally the likes of Shinjiro Karagata, Nishiki Tsukino, Mondai Yūgana and others, even going so far as to occasionally share a jutsu he personally developed with his students!
Yet, as he grew older, a growing since of unease filled his being. Something that he didn't yet know how to describe but could be summarized as this; he did not belong in or to Kirigakure. As such he grew ever resentful of the system that surrounded him, particularly as he grew closer with his parents. This all changed, though, when he participated in a tournament in Star Country. As fate would have it, he signed up for a Ninjutsu exhibition match and was paired up first and foremost with none other than Kasai Yami, the current Mizukage! Their match was intense but ultimately the Mizukage was declared the winner, but at the end of the fight, the Reaper declared that Aimi would be made the next Bannin of Kirigakure!
When the tournament was over the promotion was formalized and Aimi was given leave to travel the world for a year under the condition that he come back stronger than he had been before. Eager to stretch his wings, so to speak, Aimi said his goodbyes and ventured out into the world. At first he merely traveled to new places and trained, indeed growing stronger, but as time went on he would encounter new individuals and a path would be set before him: He would visit every other ninja village and see what they were like in comparison to Kirigakure.
Thus began a tour across the mainland that lead him to all sorts of different places and scenarios, making his way into Konohagakure, Sunagakure, Iwagakure and Kumogakure and receiving massive culture shock! He could not believe how different the other ninja villages were, though none more so shocked him than Konohagakure. Along the way, he even helped a former Kirigakure kunoichi and Genma host of Vorashu, Katsu Artemisu, conquer the Land of Rivers for their own!
Shortly after this, the Great War erupted. Aimi was not aware of the war at first because he was in the Land of Plains and Sea, discovering and getting to know the Kinoko clan. When word did reach him, the war had already been raging for several weeks. With the arrival of this news, Aimi saw an opportunity. In secret, he defected from Kirigakure, vowing to never return. He then began to gather all of the scattered members of the Kinoko clan and unite them under a single banner, attempting to throw a coup of the local powers that be of the Land of Plains and Sea in order to set up a base and military power to join the war. Alas, his efforts were ultimately unsuccessful and, having suffered losses deemed too much, Aimi and the Kinoko clan retreated to fight another day.
He then traveled north, conquering as he went. Over the coming five years he would conquer and lose Dungeon Country to Wind, conquer a smaller country further north of Dungeons, then Gold even further north before heading back south and successfully conquering the Land of Plains and Sea, at which point his military might was powerful enough to split into two separate directions, attacking and conquering simultaneously the Land of Steppes to the west and the Land of Beasts back north. By this time, the Great War was declared to have come to an end, and Aimi found himself at the head of a new nation on the world stage: The Land of Gold.
From here, he began development on the military village of Kusagakure, intending to make it a stepping stone towards industrializing the mostly wild and untamed lands of his new nation. During the construction he had a fateful encounter with a child afflicted with the heterotropic ossification, the same disease all Kaguya suffered from. It was then that he decided that he must return to Kirigakure. Planning a one man invasion, he went back to the Bloody Mist village in secret to take what supplies he could carry, the Kaguya clan scroll, and his parents. However, not all went as planned and during the ensuing chaos, his parents were lost, at which point his secret invasion turned into a short lived assault. When there could be nothing more to gain, Aimi left the misty village for the last time and returned back, vowing now to begin building a new village; a shinobi village: Kingakure no Sato.
After his return, he would have yet another fateful encounter certain laughing jackal and was banished to the world of spirits for, what was to him, seventy years, while in reality hardly any time had passed at all. The banishment changed him on multiple fundamental levels and when he returned he was a changed man. With new found direction and conviction, he hastened the construction of Kingakure and set to work gathering the clans that would populate it.
So it was, so it goes.
The Finding of the Slayer of Worlds...
Midway through his life's journey, Aimi found himself upon a dark road in a wooded forest, for the clear path was lost. He was in transit, heading towards his mission in the fire country when he came across an unusually quiet, unusually still piece of forest. Immediately he could tell that something was wrong, the air was different here. He hadn't seen a sign of civilization for miles beyond the road he'd been travelling on, and in an episode of absent-mindedness, he'd strayed from the path and ended up there. The trees, the further he went in, were dead or dying, gnarled and twisted. Nothing seemed to be growing. The ground seemed to grow harder with each step, until all was seemingly dead.
Turning around a tree, he was stunned by what he saw. There, in the ground, buried almost to the hilt was a sword on fire with blue flame. Wrapped around the blade, the guard, the hilt and the pommel were scrolls, unwrapped, filled with writing. Sealing jutsu he was able to identify, but not what sort. Intrigued by this, he moved to approach and was repelled by pain, his flesh falling from his bones. That was when he noticed the red mist that surrounded the blade, making all smooth and death, repelling all life. It was only by the grace of his quick reflexes and regeneration that he was spared the same fate.
Aimi marked this location in his head, back tracking out of the dark wood to find where he had been on the road and remembering it well, going so far as to mark his passing on a tree. He went about his mission, doing it dutifully but his mind was on the sword and the mystery surrounding it. He found himself desiring the blade and it's mysterious power, wanting to unravel it's mystery and why it was sealed away there. With his mission a success, he sought out a blacksmith and requested a special sheath, claiming that his was only a temporary measure and not when he normally used. His own sheath was in disrepair, he claimed, and paid the blacksmith handsomely to get it done as quickly as possible. He requested that it be made of pure, heat treated, tempered iron.
Once the sheath was completed, he went back to the dark wood and there found the sword once again. He'd spent days thinking of how to retrieve it properly, and he put the plan into motion as swiftly and elegantly as he possibly could. He removed the seals from the rotted earth, he drew the blade from it's tomb, he sheathed the flaming sword and he coated the iron sheath in the myriad of complicated fuuin jutsu, using his own chakra to keep it in place. He feared that it was only a temporary measure, though, and so quickly spirited the blade away from that dead place.
On his way back to the Kirigakure, Aimi hid the blade where only he would know where to look, thoroughly covering it up and disguising its presence as best as he could. Once he was certain that it would not be disturbed, he left that place and returned back to the village, keeping the sword in the back of his mind for the day he might need it, naming it The Worldslayer.
So it was, so it goes.
