Kawajima Ren

[To bring everyone together is how strength is born]

General Information Age: 18
Gender: Female
Height: 5'8"
Weight: 145 lbs

Physical Features:
  • Face/head: Ren has feminine, though not entirely soft facial features, her cheekbones being fairly pronounced and her jaw pointed, her deep brown eyes being thin and almost cat-like in appearance. Finally she has long red hair that hangs down to her lower back and is typically tied back into a braid or a bushy ponytail, the former being more common.
  • Body: Ren is a tall, well built young woman, standing at just under six feet tall with long legs as well as well defined muscle tone and nice curves, wide hips and firm behind leading up to ample bosom and a slight inward curve to her waist. She holds no major injuries but she does have various small scars decorating her body, this all being tied together by a complete lack of tattoos, piercings, or other such markings.
  • Notable Features:----
Clothing/Accessories: Ren typically gravitates towards darker colors when choosing clothes, her primary outfit being dark brown in it's entirety, it being a long sleeved woolen shirt and a pair of woolen pants with a belt that are tucked into a pair of knee high boots, a pair of fingerless gloves that reach just past her elbow accompanying the rest. Over her clothes she typically wears a hooded cloak with the hood typically left down, though she will put it up if need be.

  • General: Put quite simply, Ren is a woman of very few words, preferring to express herself through actions rather than words. Though while she is quiet she's also friendly and sociable, willing to make friends with almost anyone and at times even being playful and flirtatious. With that said, while she does easily warm up to others, she can just as easily close herself off if she's betrayed or otherwise finds someone unworthy of her trust and friendship, that trust being incredibly difficult to regain. Additionally, she loves nature, often being found taking walks and observing the natural beauty of the world around her.
  • Hopes/Dreams: Her main dream is to serve as a link between her people, to fully join together the people of Iwa and those of the various tribes scattered throughout rock country.
  • Fears: Her greatest fear is not being able to accomplish her dream, whether that be through her own death or some other means.
  • Combat Mentality:Ren has a fairly simple approach to combat, punching fast and hard with the goal of either forcing an opponent into submission or leaving them physically unable to fight, whatever the means.

Strong Fist:
This style focuses on being overall more physically powerful than your opponent. Users attempt to overwhelm defenses with great speed and strength while chipping away at their opponent’s stamina and keeping their own at the highest possible. Most attacks are simple in execution but extremely powerful in effect, causing battles of attrition to be in their favor.
  • Requires: [Upper Body] & [Lower Body] Concentrations
  • Obtaining A/S archives techniques requires [Taijutsu Specialization]

*[Strong Fist Style • Balance]
D-Ranked Taijutsu Stance
A neutral stance taken by even entry level practitioners. This stance involves turning your body to be perpendicular to your opponent. One foot is rested directly in front of the other with just the toes in contact with the ground. A hand is held back while the other is forward, pointing up. This stance provides ease of dodging incoming blows by using the least amount of motion possible while still being ready to launch into an attack.

*[Strong Fist Style • Leaf Gale]
D-Ranked Taijutsu Maneuver
A simple sweeping kick aimed low to knock the opponent off balance.

*[Strong Fist Style • Dynamic Entry]
D-Ranked Taijutsu Maneuver
In this technique, the user builds momentum and speed in order to bridge the gap between themselves and a distanced target. After covering an appropriate distance, the user then lets loose a form of distraction, like a thrown object, in order to misdirect the target's attention. The user then leaps with their momentum, delivering a strong kick to bridge the rest of the distance.

*[Strong Fist Style • Dynamic Action]
D-Ranked Taijutsu Maneuver
Because distances tend to become the problem in most taijutsu, the practitioner will advance with every strike. This creates a tempo of advancement that is designed to wear down their opponent through ever pressing strikes, giving little chance for escape or recovery.

*[Strong Fist Style • One Inch Punch]
D-Ranked Taijutsu Discipline
When fighting in close quarters it becomes difficult to generate energy for full powered strikes. Practitioners have learned how to explode force from every muscle with minimal energy wasted and space needed. Every strike done by the practitioner has the potential to be at full strength, so long as they have at least one inch of movement.


*[Strong Fist Style • Great Leaf Flash]
C-Ranked Taijutsu Maneuver
Prerequisite: *[Strong Fist Style • Balance]
The user will tense the muscles in their lower body to a great degree. Doing so causes them to briefly become immobile but creates an enormous amount of pent up energy. By bringing their back leg forward in a straight kick they release all of this energy in a single explosive burst. This can take out a lot of defenses and unless they’re supported by outside forces will knock a kicked foe back a number of yards equal to the difference in their strength and the practitioner's.

*[Strong Fist Style • Great Leaf Whirlwind]
C-Ranked Taijutsu Maneuver
A combination attack started by the user unleashing a powerful kick to either side of their opponent. They will then place themselves behind the target and unleash a quick flurry of punches before kicking another side and repeating the process. This process can keep going ad infinitum or until the practitioner disengages.

*[Strong Fist Style • Thunder Leaf Fist]
C-Ranked Taijutsu Maneuver
An attack that is slow to wind up but powerful in execution. The adept tenses every muscle in their shoulders and arms while twisting their core for a powerful strike. For the 1/4 post they spend winding up they're treated as having a -6 speed. However, when the strike is released it comes nearly instantly and at a +6 strength.

*[Strong Fist Style • Rising Leaf Wind]
C-Ranked Taijutsu Maneuver
Prerequisite: (Instinct+Taijutsu)/2 greater than opponent's taijutsu
A disrupting kick that can be launched from nearly any position. This kick is delivered quickly and at 3/4 strength but is aimed at any possible opening and extremely difficult to defend against, quickening the tempo the practitioner is keeping.

*[Strong Fist Style • Skyward Strike]
C-Ranked Taijutsu Maneuver
An often difficult attack to accomplish but good for setting up a string of further attacks. The user will sweep low, attempting to kick their target's feet from beneath them. Before they fall, a second kick will attempt to launch them airborne a number of meters equal to the difference in the practitioner's strength from their target.
Bone BreakerShow
Bone Breaker Style was created by shinobi in order to disable another fighter quickly in a fight to prevent them from utilizing limbs, and weathering the opponent down by short powerful strikes aimed at weak spots in the skeletal structure to fracture or break entirely. The style is strongly based off the strength and taijutsu skill of the user. If a user is strong they can snap bones easily, but if they are uncoordinated the style is essentially useless, same if it was the other way around, a weak person cannot snap bones no matter how well they're coordinated. The style is an utterly brute and ruthless one used to typical lethally injure or disable an opponent for other means.

Historical AccountsShow
Ren was born to a barbarian tribe in the far north of Rock Country to a single mother, whom was also the daughter of their chieftain, by the name of Hisako, her father as well as several others, having disappeared while on a hunt, leaving behind her very pregnant mother to raise her alone. Even despite the initial worries, her mother did her best to raise her properly, other members of the tribe doing all they could to assist. Over the first few years of her life, she lived in peace and happiness, nobody even beginning to realize what may lay in her future. it was when she was twelve years old that the track of her destiny began to more clearly take shape. She had wandered away from the small village that she called home, having gone on a walk to better appreciate the world around her. It was during this time that she was suddenly attacked by a bandit looking to make a quick buck. She was quickly overpowered and bound but luckily before she could be taken, an arrow came flying towards them impaling her assailant, a hooded woman standing in the distance. Of course the poor girl was terrified, but she calmed down as her would be rescuer approached and pulled down their hood, revealing the face of a smiling woman. The woman introduced herself as Ayaka and even revealed herself to be a shinobi from the nearby village of Iwagakure as she untied her and offered to escort her home, an offer which the young girl accepted, feeling that she would be safe in this strangers' hands.

On the way, the pair talked and seemed to form a genuine bond, Ren having a sense of admiration towards her rescuer as she told her various stories of shinobi life and her own accomplishments, the girl hanging onto every single word. It wasn't long however before they reached their destination and it was time to part, or would have been had Ren not convinced the woman to come meet her mother. It seemed that neither of them wanted to separate just yet as the woman readily agreed.

Hisako was beyond grateful to Ayaka for saving her daughter and even bringing her home and so the trio spent some quality time together, all of them feeling something, some form of connection between them, though none of them knew what it was just yet. Soon however, Ayaka had to leave but not before promising to come back from time to time.

And so she did, Ayaka often visiting the pair over the next several months, the trio slowly growing closer as time passed on.. and then came a life changing event. One day, a now thirteen year old Ren came home from a shopping trip to find Ayaka and her mother holding hands, the two women announcing that at some point they had fallen for one another. That alone was enough to make Ren truly happy as she had begun to think of Ayaka as a second parent, but what made her even happier was that Ayaka was going to take them back to Iwa to live with her. Of course the thought of finding a home elsewhere did make her a tad uneasy but all it took for her to perk right back up was assurance from her mother that they would come back to visit from time to time and that they had already received the chief's blessing.

Anyways, with that they began their new life, quickly adjusting to life in Iwagakure, even despite the strange looks that they would get from time to time. Ren even quickly made a friend whom readily accepted her and even drove off any potential bullies, this friend being a Genin girl of her own age by the name of Miho. It was this event, in tandem with the admiration that she still held towards Ayaka, that truly sparked her desire to become a shinobi. Perhaps as to be expected, Hisako was completely against it at first but after days of begging from Ren and some convincing from Ayaka that the girl could handle herself she relented and hesitantly allowed her to enroll into the academy, the enrollment officially happening a year later.

Her time in the academy was fairly interesting, at least to her as it was unlike anything she had experienced before. Despite being a good deal older than her classmates, she found that for the most part they were fairly accepting, despite any awkwardness that came with the situation. She also performed fairly well, even despite having trouble in certain areas. Having received some prior knowledge on the workings of chakra from Ayaka in order to better prepare her for her schooling, Ren quickly grasped the basics, though to her disappointment it seemed that she had more than a little trouble with actually manipulating chakra. However while she struggled with ninjutsu and genjutsu, she found that she was physically gifted and skilled in the art of taijutsu. And so she graduated a year later at the age of fifteen.

It was during her time as a Genin that she began to truly realize that not everyone on either side was entirely accepting of the other. She was never directly confronted but from time to time she heard whisperings among the Iwa citizens that those on the outside shouldn't have a place in their village, while whisperings amongst some of her tribesmen suggested much the same, that they should have nothing to do with the shinobi. It greatly saddened her that the village and those outside were so far separated and so her goal was born, to one day form a link between all the people of Rock Country, though she knew that she would have to be so much stronger if she wanted to have any hope of succeeding. With that she began working harder than ever, Ayaka and a now Chuunin Miho helping her with her training and even vowing to help support her in her dream.

It was at the age of seventeen that she finally took the Chuunin exam, fighting one on one against a Chuunin specializing in long ranged ninjutsu. It was a rough contest given that she was most effective in close quarters but she eventually managed to close the distance and deal some damage, quickly gaining an advantage though it seemed that her opponent had been trained in close quarters as well, the two trading blow for blow and evening the fight back out. Beginning to feel exhausted, Ren made one final push, delivering the strongest punch that she could muster and nailing her opponent right in their gut, earning herself the victory as it seemed that it had been a bit too much for the other to handle. The interview afterwards went well, the panel of judges seeming to be pleased as she announced her declaration of what she wanted as a shinobi, to work towards a better future for the village and hopefully for those on the outside as well.

And so it was that she received a promotion to Chuunin, and with a year now having passed since then she's still working as hard as she can, to make sure that she wouldn't waste the chance that she had been given all those years ago.
