" You keep looking for a hero...why don't you look in the mirror?!"

General Information Age: 16
Gender: Male
Weight: 158.3lbs
Physical Features:
  • Face/head: Kyogi face could be characterized as "oval shaped" with a defined jaw line. Framed by mid-length shaggy(styled) black hair that flows into several small natural parts but most prominent are the two bangs that frame either side of his face.
  • Body: Kyogi appearance wise is what many people would consider to be "average" or just above the bar. He is neither riddled with muscles or inherently lacking in build but the perfect balance between the two.
  • Notable Features: As mentioned before, Kyogi's eyes are an abnormal color when compared to the other members of his clan and this is not something that he could control. Somewhere along the line in his genetic Gene pool exists a variation between the hazel and light brown genetic codes which have, over a period of time, crossed to create an entirely unique genetic code exclusive to him. This abnormality was not just for show, however, as Kyogi possessed the unique ability to discern the "true state" of those whom he comes across.

    Clothing/Accessories:Comfort and efficiency would be two words that accurately describe Kyogi's clothing style; often sporting navy blue shorts that stop just two inches above the knees and a short sleeved black T-shirt worn underneath a sleeveless grey hoodie baring the Senju clan emblem on the back of it. Unlike the standard sandals that don't offer protection for the arteries and tendons of the foot, Kyogi wears a slightly modified variant of shoe that, while still opened toed, add two and a half inches of padding protecting the metatarsals and the ligaments. From the ankle up to the top of his calf is wrapped for support and sprain prevention.

    On Kyogi's right thigh is a duel Kunai holster.


    Personality: On the surface he is strong, kind and budding with inspiring words of which to uplift others in times of great hardship. Gentle natured at heart; aiding and assisting others seems to be a path of life that albeit difficult some times, is not shied away from by the young Shinobi. However, underneath the surface he is a haven for doubt & insecurity. Feelings of inadequacy compared to those within the Senju clan and others constantly threaten to pull him away into the grips of darkness forever. Spells of happiness are usually followed by even longer spells of anxiety, sorrow and depression. These emotions stir at random and are usually kept under wraps when in public settings but deep down, somewhere that no words can reach, no limb can touch, is a constant internal struggle that threatens to tear the boy apart inside out. He hopes that one day a solution will arise to this problem but even then, believes that it will only be temporary fix.
    • General:
    • Hopes/Dreams: It may seem childish and in truth, the thought just might be. But he dreams of a world where fighting amongst Shinobi, amongst people of all walks of life in general will one day cease and that in this cease fire, the world will come to understand each other.
    • Fears: Born to the most prestigious ninja clan in history, the world even, a lot of pressure falls down upon his shoulders. From his parents and siblings to those before and after him as well as those on the outside looking in. To be viewed as a failure in their eyes to him, is to be a stain in the family's honor and in his mind there can be no greater shame. He also fears that one day, the kind words of his peers may not be enough to save him from the darkness inside himself.
    • Combat Mentality: Kyogi has yet to develop a style of his own.

    Affinity: Mokuton [Wood Release]
    Abilities and Concentrations [/i]
First Ability
Kekkei Genkai:
Mokuton [Wood Release] is a unique elemental affinity exclusive to the Senju clan. By mixing their natural affinities for Doton [Earth Release] and Suiton [Water Release] the clan is able to create strong, durable, living wood. As Mokuton is living, it has a growth effect.
Passive (Growth)Show
A truly unique element, Moktuon users create life in the form of trees. Even after their jutsu is done, these trees continue to live and grow aided by the high density of chakra in them. This gives Mokuton the growth effect, which uses the residual chakra in mokuton jutsu to rapidly speed up the natural growth process for a limited time after creation, causing the jutsu to gain +2 strength per post for an amount of posts after creation depending on the rank of the jutsu.
  • D-Rank: 3 posts
  • C-Rank: 4 posts
  • B-Rank: 5 posts
  • A-Rank: 6 posts
  • S-Rank: 7 posts
Second Ability
Zeijaku Sensakume":

"Zeijaku Sensakume" or Jakugan for short, is a Dojutsu ability exclusive to Kyogi that allows him to perceive, comprehend and identify the emotional state of others. This phenomena manifests as a plethora of colors : Red, Green, Yellow & purple. Deeper shades suggest stronger emotions and additionally, because this ability is overlaid with Yūku 's regular sight, anyone/thing he can physically see can have their state of being discerned so long as their instinct is NOT 10 above his own. In combat and at greater levels, this can be used to predict the movements of an aggressor. Relying on intent to discern the nature of an action.

Red: The color that manifests when a person is intent on performing acts of violence/aggression in Yūku's presence.
Blue: Sadness/Despair (Associated with feelings of internal conflict)
Green: The color that manifests when a person lies in Kyogi's presence.
Orange: The color that manifests when someone is in a state of confusion or disarray; often associated with those under hypnosis or Genjutsu.
Purple: Hatred. This color is also associated with Envy and manifests in those who are evil or dark hearted.
Third Ability-------------
Ninjutsu concentrationsShow
Suiton Affinity
A character with this concentration is able to utilize Suiton, and can make and use any custom or archived jutsu that require the Suiton affinity. Suiton has a passive enveloping effect.
Passive (Enveloping)Show
Suiton's effect is enveloping, meaning that suiton passively surrounds anything that it makes contact with. Suiton techniques that do not last over periods of times (i.e, exploding techniques) drench their opponents, but long term techniques will envelop anything they come in contact with and maintain a hold on it with the 3/4th strength of the technique, rounded down. This means that if a suiton wave is shot forward with 17 strength, it will envelope and move anything with it that does not have more than 12 strength to resist it. This allows Suiton to fill a very powerful role in eliminating tools from opponent's access and capturing targets.
Doton Affinity
A character with this concentration is able to utilize Doton, and can make and use any custom or archived jutsu that require the doton affinity. Doton has a passive enduring effect.
Passive (Enduring)Show
Doton has a passive effect of Endurance, which means that it's power is retained throughout the entirety of the jutsu. All of a single doton jutsu retains the strength of the jutsu, even after the jutsu has been destroyed, and unlike other jutsu, doton does not fade when destroyed. This means that if a doton barrier with 25 strength is cut in half and falls to the ground, a part of that barrier could be picked up and carried as a hand held shield which would still have 25 strength, despite being a fractured part of a jutsu. This creates incredibly potent defenses, making doton a popular affinity among defensive fighters.

The fundamental skill of [Acrobatics] includes the user’s ability to contort their body into unfamiliar positions in order to avoid attacks, as well as the user’s ability to fall safely and perform Ukemi and other feats of gymnastics. This facilitates their use of related Taijutsu.

Historical AccountsShow
Before the flamesShow
At its peak, the Senju clan had contributed greatly to the village hidden in the leaves and its people. Spurring a movement of consistent growth and development that, alongside the vast plethora of other clans, improved the country from both political and practical angles. However, the goddess of fortune had not always smiled down upon the clan. Prior to the selection of Konohagakure's most recent Hokage and shortly after Rogue Konoha ninja Enma and his colleague assaulted the village, a scandal within clan had almost cost the Senju its claim to longevity; someone had framed a member of the clan for the rape and murder of a civilian. Of course such claims were denied as no member of the clan even among its rogue counterparts had ever done something so heinous but reasoning with council despite the Senju's track record proved for naught. When the victim's family demanded some kind of action be taken in lieu of all that had been taking place at the time (village construction, searching for a new Hokage canditate etc) the Council simply could not afford to overlook the problem. In the end, a simple but emotional solution was reached: In exchange for the woman who had been murdered, the life of the accused was to be taken without recourse. Relatives of the man accused pleaded, begged and fought tooth and nail for a retrial but one would never come; as per Konoha's law, the very law the Senju had helped form, the man accused was hung to death.

In the sea of gathered masses there'd been a young looking woman; frail, short and with eyes that seemed to call upon the spirit, watching the preceeding. Next to her right side held firmly at the shoulders, stood a small boy who could have been no older than five or six at the time. Both were dressed in ceremonial robes typically worn by Senju clan members and yet, in this single moment neither of them felt any closer to the clan or the village. For the mother of three and expecting one more, watching the man that she loved deeply, the instrument of her blessing be robbed of his life by a homeland that should have known better was quite difficult indeed. However, for the young boy standing next to her, August 12th marked the day he'd lost hero forever. It would never be known that the true reason behind the man's execution stemmed from a refusal to allow the probing of his mind via a Yamanaka participant. He'd trusted that his village would see the truth to the very end...and it cost him.
Embers burnShow
After the execution, life seemed to return to is usual cycle within the village and Senju clan perspectively; however, one house hold still felt the effects of August 12, the family of that "criminal" left to be hung high and dry for the village to see. For months on end the family went through a transition period; dinners were quiet, hardly anyone ever actually spoke to one another within the house and for a while it seemed as though the energy had been completely wiped away. Until one day, the eldest of three came home and smiled brighter than ever before - like "that" time. Like most days he'd chatted up with the mother tell her of all the things he'd learned to which she took with great appreciation as any loving and considerate mother would have. But then...came the news. In a stark twist to the conversation, he'd informed her that in order to provide money for the house hold he'd begun taking higher risk missions with the thought that if he could provide enough for his mom that she would not need to depend upon another man and break the sanctity of their home. Where he expected the woman who birthed him to be happy of his decision, the eldest recieved only a hard slap to the face.

Unknown to the two at the time, fearfully watching from the darkness of a wall, was the youngest. He did not understand the gravity of what was taking place but in more ways than he could imagine this sight messed with his psycological state; it had been during this stage in his life, that Kyogi first recognized his feeling of longing but could not put it into words. As the two shouted back and forth over what was right and wrong, the second Eldest brother intervened bringing peace to an otherwise turbulent situation and subject. It was to be understood that funding would be in order, especially to care for the life of another child. They'd all had just cause to be angry and outright upset with the village and its council decision but the second Eldest believed that the death of his Father ought to be seen as a lesson instead of a weight to be thrown around aimlessly. Listening to his older brother articulate himself, Kyogi found a glimpse of what he thought was his Father slipping to the surface. But surely, he'd been wrong as ever.

The mother of Three had loved their father deeply, so deeply in fact that the blow of his death had struck her the hardest. She'd known in her heart that the man she loved was innocent and yet to satisfy another's false sense of justice he'd been executed wrongfully! It was set in her soul, no matter what was said or done the woman could never forgive them and as a Senju woman, her wills and beliefs were firm. Her unwillingness to let go of the memories had caused her an immeasurable amount of pain; pain that reflected in her eyes, actions, and words. Coupled with the fact that she'd been pregnant at the time, she'd often found herself shouting in frustration about the house and knocking over picture frames destroying family photos. Through it all the three siblings did their best to help their mother cope but in the end their efforts just wasn't enough. On one September aftertoon the three boys had gone out to fetch fire wood and other materials in preparation for what would be the biggest meal since back in the day - Li, the oldest brother had been promoted to Jounin and believed that there was absolutely no better way to celebrate than with his family. They'd spent the evening laughing, joking and learning from one another to which Kyogi learned part of what the "Will of fire" meant to the Senju clan and to his older brother. All in all, it'd been a pretty eventful outting but - everything changed when the door of their home had been slid open.

Li held the fire wood; when he happened upon the scene not only did he drop everything in his possession, he'd been the first to take off spirinting into the house with Eiyasu and Kyogi following behind. When they'd left, the house had been cleaned spotless but was as if someone - no, something had blown through the place. Broken glass and home statures were everywhere, but the truly frightening thing was that the one family photo they'd all taken together when Kyogi had been just a baby, was found smashed in the hallway. Eiyasu would be the one to find her first...his eyes wide and filled with tears that streamed like the sea, then Kyogi and finally Li. In the room of their parents, the three siblings had found their mother hanging from the ceiling by a tightly tied rope. There'd been no need to do a check, the light had faded from her skin and when he'd went to take her down Li noted how cold she was. For Kyogi, this experience had changed him and although his elder brothers had done their best to shield him from the darkness it had been this moment that he felt most empty. Moreover, this was also the first time he'd unconsciously triggered the Jakugan though due to passing out shortly after, Kyogi has no recollection of it.

For a long while, Li had fought tooth and nail both with himself and the problems outside of home to keep what remaining family he had left together. Often he would take the role of Parent and Teacher to Eiyasu mentoring him in the ways of Ninjutsu as well as delegating certain tasks like cleaning up the house to the boy. Meanwhile Yūku had been forbidden to practice Ninja arts or participate in discussions of their future: It was Li's will to ensure that his youngest sibling hadn't needed to worry about a thing growing up, despite the divide already threatening to pull each of them down a separate path. Even still, Kyogi was able to regain a fraction of what had been lost through Li and Eiyasu, their bubbling personalities often making him forget the problems of the past but when alone or when neither of his brothers could be found, the boy found himself fighting and losing a constant internal battle. As he grew older and more responsible, Kyogi pleaded with Li to let him study in the ways of Ninjutsu but was refused out right. Li believed that the Shinobi world even for a Senju, was far too dangerous in its current state. What Kyogi had not known (due to being shielded from it) was that things had been much worse for Konoha: the Hyuuga clan leader had been murdered and just one of many secret techniques had been stolen. Not to mention the rebuilding efforts had reached a stand still - it was difficult for the village to focus on repair and regrouping when no Hokage had been selected yet. To allow Kyogi to become apart of that world was unthinkable!

Many times before the year had ended Kyogi attempted to convince Li to let him study but like the many times before, he'd been denied his opportunity. Eiyasu, the second oldest of the trio took pride in Kyogi's persistence but could not understand exactly why he wanted to be a Shinobi. Not so unlike their older brother, Eiyasu shared the belief that Kyogi was too young and innocent for the kind of duties demanded of a ninja but unlike Li, Eiyasu believed in letting one decide their own fate. It'd been a duel perspective gained after the reflection on two very similar tragedies in his life time...Kyogi's as well. In the end, it would be Eiyasu who would take up the mantle and teach Kyogi the ways of Ninjutsu in secret. Starting with the basics of Chakra and its many, many uses Eiyasu eventually would go on to expand Kyogi's knowledge beyond that of most regular Academy first years but it would take many more years of fine tutoring and hard lessons before Kyogi had even been able to compete against the other younger children who's parents had already started down the path of teaching them Shinobi arts.
New leaves danceShow
Now fourteen years of age, Kyogi had made marginal leaps in both his training under Eiyasu and studying of his own accord. Finally, it'd been time to face the greatest challenge of all: Convincing Li to allow him to sign up for the Shinobi Academy. Under Eiyasu, Kyogi had displayed great promise in Taijutsu but his grasp of Chakra natures was what won over his older brother's support. At his age, many children couldn't even use an elemental nature let alone two of them! His applications were..basic at best, but Kyogi (with some helpful guiding by Eiyasu) had managed to control his chakra well enough to utilize the Doton and Suiton elemental chakra natures. It'd been on those grounds that a young Kyogi confidently approached his meditating big brother, practically shaking the man out of his concentration. "Big brother big brother!" He would shout with glee. "Look what I can do!" Without thinking, Kyogi began weaving through hand seals which alone raised Li's many, many alarms. Then, the boy actually started channelling Chakra and Li couldn't believe what his eyes had been seeing.

Kyogi of course, took his brother's surprise to be a sign for continuance. Now that he had finally captured Li's attention he had been determined not to let the chance to impress his older brother slip through his fingers. After channelling his chakra, Kyogi held his left hand out with the palm facing toward the heavens and soon enough, a visible distortion was noted. It was as if...something no...water? Had been pulling in from all around straight into Kyogi hand; this distortion after some time, became a full on Shuriken created entirely of liquid pulled from the air and Chakra. With a grunt of effort, the water projectile had been thrown away from the two but Kyogi wasn't done there. "Kai!" Suddenly the shuriken violently expanded (explosions) in a cloud of dispersed water that fell harmlessly to the ground. Pleased with himself, Kyogi turned to find his brother frowning. "Where's Eiyasu?" Is all Li would say in response to what he had witnessed, Kyogi was confused. "Huh? Wasn't that awesome Big brother?" He'd ask trying to fight the feeling turning in his stomach. "You've been practicing Shinobi arts even though I expressly forbid you to do so. I hope you're ready to accept the consequences," Li stood and walked away leaving Kyogi confused, filled with anxieties and questioning himself. For the third time in his life, he'd let someone who meant the world to him down.

Frustrated with himself for believing that it had actually been possible to convince Li to let him go to the academy, Kyogi felt foolish. But even more than that, he felt empty. For so long he had trained, studied and trained more in order to finally prove himself to his elder brothers, to prove to himself that he hadn't been just the baby of the family. He'd let them down, he'd let everyone down. The feeling of guilt combined with his already budding internal struggles, spurred Kyogi to flee the Senju compound and head for the forest. Nevermind the plethora of dangerous animals and insects that inhabited the place, he needed to find somewhere to go - to get away from it all. While in the forest he'd cried to himself for hours, shouting obscenities that he didn't really know the meaning of. Kyogi Lashed out at no one but beat himself up the hardest. Just as old memories began to resurface, pulling him back into a state of depression, he felt a hand touch his shoulder and snapped from his trance. To his surprise, it was Li! Not just him, Eiyasu was there too! Both of them had strange grins on their faces as if they'd had a laugh before coming but Kyogi wouldn't budge, surprised as he was he'd been still been reeling in his mode - that was, until Li and Eiyasu spoke. "Well little brother,I know I've been hard on you but you know that it's only to protect you. I've tried to shield you away from this lifestyle but thanks to a certain blockhead," Li looked at Eiyasu who simply smiled in response. "Doesn't look like that's going to be a possibility anymore. So here it is: As long as you promise to stay on top of your school work and can register for the Ninja academy."

What? Did he just hear that right? A wave of calm had washed over Kyogi when he replayed the moment back in his head; then, after a long pause, the boy screamed for joy practically tackling his two older siblings. January would prove to be both a prosperous and grueling month for the Three as now all of them were tied with not just ninja lifestyle, but the fundamentals of their clan as well. For Yūku, enrolling into the Ninja academy was a large plus for his immediate family but the Senju as a whole would honor him and help him grow from here forward. With two exceptionally gifted Shinobi as his brothers, the bar had been set almost ridiculosuly high for Kyogi; however, this pressure would not phase him. Li had given him the green light to become a Shinobi and he intended to do just that - their mother and Father and unborn sibling as his witness. In roughly two years time, he'd managed to excel beyond the criteria demanded of Academy students and was put up for Genin promotion. From here forward, his life would change forever.
