Rank: B-Rank Samurai
Physical Features: Standing resoundingly tall at about 210cm", with much of the height coming from his strong legs, Fuhen would often not be considered homely or handsome to most. His hair has gotten longer in his travels, and is now kept pulled back in a loose tail to keep it out of his eyes, but often it breaks free, leading down to his lightly slanted eyes, semi-pointed nose, and rather large mouth. Both his right hand and both of his feet have webbing between the appendages. His body is thin but wiry with muscles, and where he was once a sickly pale, his many years of travel in daylight have darkened him considerably, bringing him to a much more natural skin tone. Scars exist all over his body, especially his arms and back, from various duel and battles.
Clothing/Accessories: Where once Fuhen's clothing consisted of ragged travelling clothes, his change of pace into that of the Shogun has left him in more traditional looking samurai clothing, designed and made by two of his younger sisters. This outfit consists of a pair of hakama trousers that go down to his ankles, loose fitting and dark blue in color, designed to give him maximum mobility, and paired with a pair of traditional kyahan, which tightly secure the hakama to his legs so that he does not trip over them. This is completed with tabi, though he wears his kegetsu boots even when not wearing his armor. For tops he wears a black shitagi, accented all over with cute little frogs in various poses, sitting, jumping, going after flies, or various others. When not wearing his armor, he also wears a white hakama top, the right breast emblazoned with the kanji for "Iyashii of River", and the back proudly sporting the symbol of his revolution. Lastly, similarly designed by his sisters are a matching necklace and charm bracelet (worn on his left wrist) that contain an obscene number of miniature swords, reminiscent of the giant basket of swords he used to carry on his back, but thankfully easy to make no noise with.
Personality: Fuhen can often come off as a loud lout, being one unafraid to speak his mind in most situations, even if it might get him in deeper trouble. He is fiercely loyal to his family, and any he considers his extended family, and down right defensive towards their honor, rights, and general persons. Once young and clumsy, he has since grown out of this, though to a casual observer he would still come off as someone who almost looks uncomfortable in their own skin, walking in strange patterns that almost make him appear drunk at times.
Fuhen is a fan of a good fight, but has reservations against killing in most circumstances. Having taken a few lives in the past, he understands the necessity to do so at times, especially in the defense of others, but would generally rather leave most drunken brawls having given out a few bruises and bumps than pierced hearts. Good natured and good hearted, he is quick to jump in to offer assistance wherever he is needed, but is also unafraid to take payment for any services rendered.
At the age of twelve, Fuhen began to understand the the need for strength and force, even in a small village like his. A small group of ruffians decided it was a good idea to pick on the small fishing village that can barely take care of itself, let alone give "payment" in the form of their limited food supply. The village, to the great shock of Fuhen, took up arms. They stood together, fishing spears in hand, fishing nets at the ready, taking the bandits by complete surprise and in the process of killing over half of them, ran the rest out. After this, Fu began to train himself daily. Working on perfecting his body so that he could be a force to be reckoned with if anyone ever tried to mess with his village again. It was his ground. How dare anyone ever try and defile it again?
Several years later, skipping to the age of sixteen, Fuhen had trained himself hard. Slowly developing his own fighting style (Developed around the childish idea that "Hey, one sword is powerful, I bet a million are even stronger!), and with nothing to test it out on. However, a ninja had come crashing into their village. Not on purpose, mind you, but boy did he come crashing. Having been in the middle of a hunt with a missing ninja from his village, the ninja ended up tearing up some of the landscape, and taking down one of the huts. Understandably, Fuhen was angry, though could not do much about it. When the battle was over, the ninja was near dead, passed out, and even with all the destruction, the village took him in, patched him up, fed him and gave him water, and were about to just let him go with no form of payment, though he had offered. Only Fuhen made a request. "Teach me how to fight." It was laughable, in fact, the village leader, and the ninja both laughed. But, the ninja patted him on the head condescendingly, and handed Fu a scroll he had pulled off of the missing ninja, containing the basic, but useful style of Gouken Ryuu. While still slightly angry at the ninja, the young boy Fu took the scroll without complaint, and immediately poured over it for days and days at a time.
At the age of 18, Fuhen began to travel the world. This was in part due to a bit of wanderlust, however it was also due to an increase of taxes in the entire country. Being a member of such a large family, he simultaneously decided to give them one last mouth to feed every day, and also go out and find work so that he could bring home enough for his family to always be taken care of. His travels took him far and wide, and he did everything from bounty hunting to taking care of local bandit populations.
At the age of 20, Fuhen had his first encounter with slavers, meeting them while taking on a job to find a missing person from Pebble Country. From the moment he laid eyes upon the slave's conditions, he knew he had to put an end to any sort of activity that even vaguely resembled that sort of thing. He made a solemn vow to himself the freedom for all would become his goal. Also at the age of 20, he met Kotentou, an Iwagakure ninja who had left their post. A strange fellow, he passed off a scroll that contained the secrets of chakra, which were later trained alongside Yato, a Konoha missing ninja.
Since these occurrences, our Frog has traveled to the vast majority of the minor countries, and all of the major countries, meeting the people and becoming quite famous. His escapades as a hero and freer of slaves have earned him quite a name amongst people all over the known world, and while not immediately recognizable, many would recall his name as being told in stories. His exploits are many, as are the friends he has gained.
At the age of 27, Fuhen met his first apprentice, Sato, a samurai from waterfall country who was mostly self taught, and who sought him out after his adventures in Dragon Country, taking out the leaders of a local gang alongside the monk named Gendo.
Thanks to Fuhen's Shogun ability, all equipment listed below are considered "Hitodama" and are no longer carried around except within his very being, or unless otherwise stated.
All empires crumble under the weight of their people. Brought forth to embody justice for the people, Krag is made of only the simple leather and wood, tightly bound to form the full shaft and head; Relatively short for a spear at 1.2m in length, Krag makes excellent for a quick striking tool, however the [MINOR] power of Krag is that it can extend to up to 5m. Representing the sudden change of rebellion, the [Major] effect of the spear is that, at will, the tip can explode with the force of 16 exploding tags outward, in a spearhead shape.
Prey and Predator alike succumb to nature. Brought to life in the vats of primevil ooze existent only at the bottoms of oceans past rises Ichor; Actually a pair of two identical weapons (though one may be hooked to a belt for single use.) Ichor is a pair of weapons designed to cause nearly irreversible bleeding, cuts caused by the wicked serrated blades cause targets to begin bleeding at double the normal rate, and its wounds wont heal without advanced Iijutsu being involved, even if the one it cuts has standard regeneration. Because of this, a single cut can be enough to kill weaker foes, but even stronger foes will find the irreversible bleeding too much to handle after a few good cuts.
The starting point of all achievement is Desire. What is best described as a cloak, Desire is a large piece of fabric woven with an indistinguishable material. It has a corded border, and several points that join together that can be utilized to join it around a neck like a cloak. However, if all the points are brought together, it functions as a bag. The cloak can be manipulated with the user’s control, and has strength equal to the user’s stamina, allowing it to be effective for capturing. However, Desire also masks the chakra signatures of anything within it, and muffles all sound. This makes it very good at reconnaissance, and sometimes, smuggling. The cloak is 2m x 3m in size, but through focus can be expanded up to double that to 4m x 6m in size.
None shall flee, but for the birds. Pulled from the depths of Fuhen's anger, and forged from the fiery bones of dragons comes Arakkoa; A longbow almost as tall as he is, sitting at just over 2m in overall height, its red leather surface is quite an intimidating sight for anyone to behold. Arakkoa's special ability is slightly more strange than most, as it has the power to fire anything from pebbles to fully grown humans from its string. Arrakoa is also a force to be reckoned with in raw force, as the power at which it releases its projectiles scales with Fuhen's four specialization stats, allowing him to shoot with more strength and speed than his strength would normally allow, while using the bow to achieve ridiculous ranges.
- 30 "Standard" Arrows, approximately 82cm in length with razor sharp broadhead tips and bright white fletching.
- 10 "Hunter" Arrows, approximately 82cm in length with Judo tips, designed to grip onto enemies with their sharp barbs, and have blood red fletching. Additionally, these special arrows can lock onto a chakra signature, following their target and able to change direction in up to a 90 degree arc.
Beauty is power; a smile is its sword. A desire for equality through power brings the cold, unforgiving steel of Succubus into being. Longer than his usual katana, with a 75cm blade and 30cm handle, Succubus is designed to reach an opponent who would otherwise be very difficult to hit. The primary power of succubus is its power to disrupt chakra systems of anything it comes into contact with. A light touch on a normal creature such as humans is enough to prevent their ability to mould chakra for the next two posts. However, beings of chakra, such as spirits or those who took the leap away from humanity with elemental bodies will find their entire form disrupted, with a light touch making a horrific wound that can't be regenerated through normal means, and any cuts destroying their form entirely, leaving only their core behind. This effect can be resisted if the person it touches has a control stat higher than Fuhen's specialist stats, as per his Shogun ability.
Pieces of the Whole:As Fuhen's Shogun armor is not simply a single suit, each piece is seperate in its own right, and has been upgraded with the following qualities.Kabuto/MenpōShowN/ADōShowN/ASuneate/HaidateShowN/AKote/SodeShowN/ATekkōShowN/AKogakeShowN/A
Currently, inside the sheath, are 60 simple and plain katana, each one exactly the same, with a 63cm blade, and 28cm handle.
Having devoted their lives to mastering the art of taijutsu, this samurai is classified as a Taijutsu Specialist. Taijutsu specialist are able to devote a total of 10 concentrations to taijutsu, unlike most people who are capped at 8. However, they are only able to devote a max of 5 concentrations to genjutsu, and a max of 5 concentrations to ninjutsu.
As a Taijutsu Specialist, Fuhen is able to utilize taijutsu concentrations reserved for specialists, and is able to enter the God Tier [45+] on select stats, and meaning as a specialist they can select stats to break into the God tier. These stats are Taijutsu, Stamina, Speed, and Instinct.
Numakon:The Numakon trait is a rare ability found once every several generations in people all across river country. The ability itself is said to be the result of fornication with swamp spirits, though the actual causes are unknown. The ability itself provides its owners with a long, prehensile tongue (roughly three feet in length) that functions as an extra limb, stronger than average legs which allow them to jump twice the height and/or distance their strength would indicate, along with sticky saliva that is produced in copious amounts thanks to incredibly active saliva glands, which grows more powerful with age and use, primarily dependent on their stamina to determine its strength. Skilled Children of Takiyasha have also been known to channel their frog genes outwards in strange and esoteric ways.

Shogun:Having mastered complete control over his own body, Fuhen has earned his status as an ultimate weapon master, becoming The Shogun. Where others teach the mantra that a weapon is an extension of their body, Fuhen lives it. Enhanced by a surplus of chakra that is focused into his physical talents rather than manifesting in the usual ways, his very blood sweat and tears soaks into his arsenal of choice. This allows for a series of odd techniques (also requiring the Heavenly Taijutsu concentration), but also provides several passive benefits via 'signature gear.' Any equipment on his character sheet counts as his signature gear (though if someone with a higher average than his specialization stats has control of his gear for 2 posts, he loses the signature gear effect), and all signature gear he owns has the following benefits:
Additionally, this changes the appearance of Fuhen's chakra, which leaks out whenever he's going all out. It will take on a pink color, as well as being textured like flower petals, overall taking on an appearance similar to cherry blossoms. While these powers are self-evident due to being the Shogun, this has also allowed Fuhen access to his ninth stat, Willpower. Willpower is Fuhen's manifestation of raw sense of self, inner strength, and fortitude, allowing for true mastery of body. While this forces a loss of stats (as there is no boosting involved, directly.) each effect is incredibly powerful.
- Fuhen can sense, with unerring accuracy, anything within 1m of his signature gear, but equipment must remain within the average of his four specialization stats in meters. This does not count as line of sight for Willpower teleportation.
- Fuhen can trace where any signature gear has been, as long as it was considered signature gear during its travel.
- All signature gear can be mindlessly controlled from a distance, moving at a strength and speed equal to the average of his four specialization stats. Max distance is the same average, in meters. The maximum number of objects that can be controlled at once is equal to his Willpower stat.
- All signature gear is toughened to the average of his four specialization stats, to ensure it can keep up with him in battle.
1Moderate/Critical/Lethal are as defined in the Immortality and Elemental Body rules. Critical/Lethal wounds require a full three posts after the first before another may be restored.
Willpower Level Effect 5 All signature gear may gain the passive of Fuhen's elemental affinity, using Willpower in place of Ninjutsu to determine the strength of the passive. 10 All signature gear can function as Hitodama.2 15 Fuhen may immediately restore up to 10 stamina lost once per thread. 20 Fuhen's body may immediately restore itself from a single moderate wound.1. 25 Fuhen may now teleport seamlessly to his signature gear.3 30 Extreme internal fortitude allows Fuhen to restore up to 25 stamina once per thread.. 35 Fuhen's body may immediately restore itself from a single critical/lethal wound1.
2Hitodama are defined as weapons that are pulled from Fuhen's soul, and may be placed or replaced instantaneously in order to swap weapons out on the fly.
3The distance he may teleport is equal to his specialization stats average times ten. Fuhen must have a relatively clear line of sight to the signature gear he is transporting to, must have nothing big enough to completely block his body in the way, and can do it a number of times equal to his stamina divided by ten. The teleportations require a cooldown following Space-Time rules.
