Prestige Perks: 3/3 (Legacy, Heirloom, Strange Chakra (Steamy))
|Jouchaku, Chiane The Geyser Bannin||["You're still gonna stand up? Well, it's you choice... But you stand up, that means you're ready to die."]|
Hair: Shimmering scarlet locks cascade across Chiane's back, her hair which used to be short having grown out considerably during her training. She normally prefers to keep it up and out of the way in a ponytail, with some of the hair coming down over her eyes some, which she usually has out of the way enough to make sure she can see.
Eyes: The dull, flaxen colour of her eyes has stayed the same, her indicator of her birth right. The once cheerful lines that surrounded them have somewhat faded but it is clear that she still carries herself with a bit of that indicative, infectious happiness that she had been known for.
Physical Features: What once was an athletic body has turned to something far more feminine, but never the less, still just as powerful. Pale skin that is all thanks to Kirigakure's infamous weather and her Jouchaku blood that courses through her veins, practically coated in a layer of scars that show just how many past battles, however gruesome, she has gotten into. The two most prominent marks across her body are the one where her metallic appendage is attached and the one that spans the length of her chest. What little freckling she possesses is very light and hardly noticeable. To the touch, she is smooth, warm and inviting, much to the contrast of her outward appearance which has grown coarse, cold and stern. The smile marks that used to coat her face are still there, but have faded with time. Nevertheless, she still shows the same fiery determination in her eyes she has always had and seems to continue to prove herself in a variety of ways.
Clothing/Accessories: From simple, yet vibrant colours to far more basic shades to better represent her change, Chiane has changed her wardrobe once more and intends to keep it this way. Consisting of custom tailored clothing, all with the symbol of the Seven Swordsman of the Mist as well as Kirigakure's symbol sewn into them, Chiane has chosen to wear a kimono. Along the edges of the garment is a black border, breaking up the white of the cloth along with the right sleeve being torn and shredded. The back of her kimono has the symbol of Kirigakure, as well as it being displayed prominently on the left sleeve. The symbol of the Swordsman is displayed on her front, down near the bottom of the garment. The kimono is more open at her chest and her legs, giving her more freedom and movement and ability to breath.
Along her shoulders, she keeps a jacket draped across them, tied off around her upper chest and and acts as a sort of cape. Her footwear resembles a pair of boots with the heel and toe missing. Around her midsection, her kimono is wrapped with a piece of simple cloth and a red piece of rope. Underneath her garments, she wears a long strip of cloth called a sarashi. This acts as a pair of shorts for her.
She wears four belt pouches, two on either side of her where she holds her various pieces of throwing and explosive equipment. On her right thigh is a holster, filled with Kunai. On her left side is a simple katana since having replaced her more iconic weapon. The grip of the katana is a crimson colour.
Forehead Protector: The symbol of Kirigakure is stitched into her clothing, one displayed prominently on her back and the other displayed on her right sleeve.
Personality: Due to events that came about while she was dealing with taking over the Swordsman as well as being out of the country, Chiane's once cheerful personality has been suppressed and changed once more. Now she is a woman of serious demeanor and of calm conscious. Her default expression is far more neutral and her entire boisterous nature seems to have disappeared on the outside. The few that know her well know that when given ample drink or a good fight, she can still be her old self, but for now... Chaine is a stern but amicable woman.
Chiane's fighting style has changed from her time in the village but not as much as other parts of her. While her main focus in her skill with her blade, using it combined with her metal arm and her general upfront taijutsu style to bombard her opponent from bizarre angles and from vicious holds, she still has her clan's signature scalding jutsu.|
She has learned to more effectively force people to come close to her by forcing steam in an area around her and create a safe zone in the middle where she can patiently await them or, if need be, move out from there after them when she can locate them.

|Abilities and Concentrations
|Chiane was born into the Jouchaku clan as an only child whose parents took care of her to the point of spoiling her. As a young child, she would accompany her parents to many of the festivities around Kirigakure, which help develop her cheerful and sociable personality and where her eyes would fill with wonder and amazement whenever she heard the tale for Iyashii Commemorative Day, the story being something she could never forget as she had been asked it to be told to her almost every night before she would fall asleep. During these times out with her parents, she would often see ninjas at these festivals, especially during the Water Festival where Suiton users would make elaborate and grand displays of their skill for everyone’s amusement. She would remember these moments often and eventually, as she grew older, it drove her towards the academy as well as towards wishing to practice Kenjutsu. |
Before Chiane was accepted into the academy though, her father decided to help her practice Kenjutsu when she expressed a great fascination in one of his weapons, an elegant katana that he kept appreciable care of. They would practice whenever he was home, which was often enough for her to start showing a significant amount of determination to master this art. She asked once if she could try to use the weapon she had had her eyes on, only to be met with instant reprisal since she was still a novice at the art.
Yet, one day, when Chiane thought her Father wasn't home, she went to pull his prized weapon out of its sheath, her curiosity getting the best of her. It was of master quality, sophisticated craftsmanship matched with deadly elegance that she could certainly appreciate. As she was going to do so though, her Father walked by and caught her in the act of doing this. He rushed over, snatching the sword from her hands and bellowed at her for disobeying his order. As an act of teaching and discipline, he gripped the weapon and sliced across the right side of her chest, drawing the blade towards her naval but stopping before there. It left a lasting scar, which Chiane chose not to get healed as she wanted the reminder as well as the increased determination to be able to wield what was used against her.
During her academy life, Chiane began to show off her skill in Taijutsu, Kenjutsu and Ninjutsu while having very little effect with Genjutsu which didn't seem to bother her at all. She was great with the other students, talkative to a fault at times and never really shied away from a good time with her fellow students. She was a fairly good student, doing well enough throughout most of the year until it was time for her graduation. She scored excellently on her exams and was finally able to take on her rank as Genin, with a grin across her face and her eyes shining with about as much joy as could be contained in her body.
Chiane had changed dramatically all thanks to the lose of her right arm. No longer was she the bubbly girl that people once knew. She was still excitable but she had grown an air of leadership about her. Some that she adopted from her own master and others that she adopted by reading up on them. This is all due to her wanting to take over the SSM and become its leader as well as redeem herself for her shoddy behaviour when she had first lost her arm.
After being the lose of Kohon, her mentor, Chiane felt a loss in her life that was a little more profound than that of her arm.
Someone who had taught her several different lessons was gone... and now she remained. There was only one other person in the SSM than herself. She was slated to take over and yet... she didn't feel ready. On top of being announced that she was given the title of Bannin of her village, she needed to take a step back. She needed to train. She needed to focus.
Chiane took a trip to the Land of Pebbles. To train under masters of the Toryu style. In the meantime, she gained a new perspective on life. A new personality began to take its roots and a new image began to form. With time, it shaped her into what she was today. After the year she spent in the Land of Pebbles, she came back to the village. She felt she was prepared now. More so than before and finally assumed her position as leader of the SSM.
