As expected of most members of the Hyuuga clan, Himiko has many features that is easily identifiable by most familiar with one of Konoha's noble families. Her hair is lovely chocolate shade and naturally straight, her eyes pure pools of gorgeous ivory, and her pale skin always shines with a slight pink tinge from her hours spent outside in the Fire Country's sun. But, this is perhaps as far as those appearance stereotypes falls for the girl. Easily viewed as a tomboy, the countless hours spent hanging out with her brother's guy friends has truly rubbed off on her. Just a simple glance at her can tell you that her kunoichi studies were perhaps her worst and least favorite subject in school.
Though she keeps her hair long to appease her mother, the dark brown locks are usually tangled and often going unbrushed. To keep them out of her face, the girl often pulls them up into two ponytails immediately upon leaving the shower and lets them air dry into whatever shape or design the wind has in store for her today. Next comes her face. A result of her poor ability to shape nature chakra, the girl has some slight permanent burns around her mouth from where her own fireballs literally explode in her face. To hide the most recent one, bandages often find their way upon her cheeks until healed. Her hands are often the next noticeable feature. A result of her combative trainings, her fingers and palms are rough and covered with callouses while nails are not manicured, but bitten back to keep from snagging on anything.
Clothing is for the most part simple. Besides the standard staples of a breast wrap around her chest and undergarments to conceal her privates, a staple shirt of chainmail finds its way underneath any outfit she wears, it easily blending underneath her baggy attire. Overtop of that is a simple silver and red jacket that bears her pride of the Hyuuga right upon her heart. The sleeves of the jacket are often rolled up past her elbows. Pants are simple gray capris that end a few inches below her knee while blue sandals fit over her feet. While on duty, her headband is worn around her waist and acts as a belt to attach her shinobi pouch while a kunai holster is worn on her left upper thigh.
Himiko is your fairly typical teenager. On most days, she is cheerful, positive, and loves to do things that will put a smile on not only her face but on others as well. Happiness is an emotion she often embraces to the very depth of her being. She loves to see how it effects the flow of chakra throughout the body and enjoys the warmth it can bring to herself should her mood go sour. Even with her warm spirits, the girl is quite on the empathic side. Her emotions are easily swayed by the moods of people around her. In many ways, one could view this as her biggest weakness, often making her prone to being taken advantage of someone who appears to be in some state of distress.
Despite all this, this is perhaps as far as her "typical teenager stereotype" falls on her. Unlike most girls her age, she doesn't have too much feminine charm about her. Growing up as the tag along often to her three older brothers, she is perhaps far more easily identified as another one of the guys and enjoys rough housing, pulling pranks on her friends, and family (much to her parent's chagrin). However, if there is one thing her family has rubbed off on her the most is her diligence. Due to the status of her noble status as a member of the Hyuuga clan, Himiko knows deep down that she has a reputation to uphold and she has a standard to fit into, especially on the battlefield. To best prepare herself, the girl often is found training from the wee hours of the morning to sometimes up to the afternoon.
Himiko has had a fairly standard life for a shinobi that is filled with its own fair amount of hardships and struggles. Coming from a large family, the girl is the youngest of five children and the only female among them. Her early years were perhaps the hardest for her. At the age of five, her father suffered a very devastating injury while on a mission that left him handicapped. Losing his left arm and right leg, he was left bed and wheelchair bound. Her mother was required to pick up the slack from then on. Viewed as one of Konoha's best surgeons, the woman took on an all day shift just to provide for her family. Time seeing her was seldom and short. The only time she was home was to eat, sleep, and get cleaned up for the next day's work. This left the girl being raised by her eldest two brothers (Makoto and Shura) up until her early teens to when she was viewed old enough to fend for herself.
Though times were tough, she and her siblings became very close. By the time she became an academy student, Makoto had worked his way up to replacing their family's role as a "dad." He trained hard and became a Jounin at record speed, enabling him to assist their mother in the income needed to supply for the large family. Shura on the other hand was the family's "mom." He cooked, cleaned, held most of the responsibilities for keeping their father in good health. While he never was quite able to earn a ninja rank past that of genin, he was the foundation that often held this particular branch of the Hyuuga together. As for the twins, Kenji & Kouji, they often acted as Himi's "babysitters" and playmates. Being only three years older than she was, the trio spent their time training, pranking, and enjoying their time with one another. These masculine influences made her just another one of the guys most of the time.
Her time in the Academy was for the most part sound but filled with her own fair share of troubles. Despite all her training in chakra control, anything seemingly ninjutsu related was a struggle for her. Molding chakra through hand seals and then using it to create illusions, balls of fire, or anything of the sort often ended up in a flop a vast majority of the time. Her poor grades in those subjects reflected this. It was only Taijutsu studies that she shined and easily was one of the best in her class in that regard. The girl had a natural gift for Jyuuken and that was what eventually lead to her graduation.
Even though she is a genin now, Himiko really held no immediate desire to continue climbing the ranks. If anything, holding such a title and rectifying her as an "adult" in the ninja world meant that she had to develop more responsibility. Knowing Shura had been running himself ragged with all the tasks he was required to do as the "mother of the household," the girl thought it best to relieve some of those tasks by taking over the care for her father. At first, the two really did not get along to well. The man really had become distant and depressed after his injury and truly was far from kind to his only daughter.
Even though her father was nothing but an ass to her at first, the constant care required to take care of her father did create a spark of interest in the medical ways in the girl. While there was no desire to follow her mother's path and become a surgeon, she did enjoy the more practical ways of the craft. Her kindness and helpful attitude eventually allowed some of those stubborn walls to come down and for her father to open up. This allowed them finally to bond as parent and daughter. It all started with trip out into the forests surrounding the village to get some fresh air. A simple request to watch his daughter train turned into a mutual interest in bettering the girl's Jyuuken and Byakugan strength. A former master of the Gentle Fist, the girl was able to learn quite a great deal from him - even if she struggles to hit 32 tenketsu in a series...let alone the standard 64.
Now that she is nearing her later teens, her father's only request for her is to begin taking her role as a ninja more seriously. He sees great promise in his daughter and knows that only facing the world will she begin to improve and blossom into the ninja he knows she can be.
