"If you are not with me, then you're my enemy"

General InformationShow
Age: 16
Gender: Male
Height: 5'10
Weight: 128 lbs
Hair: His brownish black hair is relatively decent in length falling to his shoulders when not tied up. For the most part though he has it pulled back and kept in place with the use of simple hair pins leaving a decent portion alone in the front which is then parted and allowed to fall to each side. People have on occasion been confused by his peculiar hairstyle, as from a distance it would appear he was a girl since it looks so feminine.
Eyes: Upon first inspection one can tell his eyes are nothing out of the ordinary, his simple hazel colored eyes don't really stand out too much compared to the intricate and deep variations found among the other people around Fire Country.
Physical Features: Shin is relatively tall in comparison to most other children in Fire Country. Being primarily a ranged fighter his body hasn't really been conditioned to the level of those that focus in fighting with their weapons or fists. In contrast to the standard athletic body type commonly found around the village, Shin is much more lithe in appearance, being thinner and more graceful looking than most. This is probably another reason as to why people confuse him as a girl at times. His skin tone is of pale white having only a bit of color to it. Many would say that his body looks beautiful, and this could be considered true since he hasn't been through any bouts of intense hardships or combat as of yet, thus he hasn't really had the chance to receive any combat scars of the sort. The only real unusual going for him are the various burns littered upon his body from using katon based ninjutsu techniques.
Clothing/Accessories: Shin wears loose fitting clothing for the comfort they provide. A simple robe, cape, and mask make up his general appearance. All of these are of a bright red and gold color scheme. With the exception being his pants which are simply black. Even his ninja boots are of a red color. Everything mentioned is relatively plain on closer inspection, looking standard for that of a budding Konohagakure ninja. Shin also carries around a hat sharing the same color scheme with the rest of his attire. The hat is quite comfortable even though it is barely worn, hanging on his belt most of the time.
Forehead Protector: Shin has integrated the forehead protector onto his belt so it doesn't bother him as much. Sure it was originally meant to protect the forehead but the weight of it upon his brow feels off, for this reason he keeps it on his belt allowing him to show his allegiance to the village while maintaining a bit of personal comfort in the process. If the occasion calls for it he has been known to wear it upon his head to convey the more standard and formal appearance of Konohagakure ninja. However, that is a rarity indeed.
At a young age, Shin developed a fondness for fire, a common occurrence in his family since each member throughout the years have been born to the katon affinity. This fondness of fire has transitioned into his way of thought, taking up traits akin to that of the flames he has come to love. As with fire, his personality is somewhat fleeting and can be unpredictable. An example being that he could be completely serious and then right after start joking as if nothing had happened. Or go from being positively happy to utterly depressed, especially if something didn't go his way. Relying primarily on his emotions to guide him throughout life he allows for them to influence his actions, reacting without thinking about the consequences most of the time. One could even go so far as to say that he has developed to be almost exclusively reactionary; entirely dependent on whatever is happening in the moment.

When presented with authority Shin has a tendency to be extremely defiant. Usually, this translates into him doing things 'his' way instead of following what is expected. That being said, one can expect him to not fully embrace orders given which has gotten him into trouble in the past. There are those times though where he maintains composure of himself to analyze and deal with a situation that calls for it, but these don't happen too often as he is generally caught up with whatever 'he' is doing. Surprisingly, Shin is quite claustrophobic. While being in a rather small room won't bother him much at all, being inside a box will cause him a discomfort not easily shaken. Staying within a small space for an extended amount of time does loads to mess with his being resulting in panic attacks or fits of uncontrollable aggression. If he doesn't manage to get out of the situation the anxiety will eventually cause him to freeze, locking up until someone or something breaks him from the paralytic fear. Even during this state, he'll do absolutely anything possible to escape being contained, ignoring all other threats. That being said, his rage can overcome this fear but it's difficult to completely override it.

Since Shin has had relative success in life thus far he has developed a stigma of him being on a different level than his peers. As such, he is kind of cocky and condescending at times. Often he is seen as irritable to those around him, speaking bluntly as if he had something better to do. For the most part, this is only a ruse to keep up his appearance of being a bad ass per say. At the end of the day, he still has the best intentions for those around him, caring deeply for his village and the people within it as is the norm when embracing the philosophy of the village known as the 'will of fire'. Being from Konoha, that way of thinking was just something one came to accept. In that same train of thought, Shin is openly ambitious by nature. Wanting to become stronger and stronger like those that came before him. The severity of his ambition has never been put to the test and much like his personality can be quite sporadic like that of smoldering ashes. In any case, crossing him can prove fatal as he has the tendency of being uncompromising and unforgiving. If you don't accept things his way than you may just end up being labeled as an 'enemy' for all intent and purposes.

While in combat, Shin is much the same. He acts out of passion and does things depending on whatever he wants to achieve. Naive in some aspects it isn't unusual for him to be tricked into a trap or the like, but one shouldn't expect an easy victory. Instead, they would be met with total defiance. Shin will fight tooth and nail to achieve victory over those considered an 'enemy'. Overly excited in combat he has developed a sadistic persona of taking pleasure in those deemed acceptable to harm. This has also begun to take a form of him taking pleasure in burning of people. Burning flesh or just the flames devouring whatever has the effect of making him feel euphoric. This apparent romance with fire and burning would have many believe him to be a budding pyromaniac with the tendency to start random fires just for the hell of it. The pleasure he receives from watching the dancing of flames is like nothing else!

Shin has always favored attacking at range with his katon based ninjutsu techniques, taking pleasure from watching his opponent burn.

The efficiency of fighting in such a way as earned him some respect from his peers.

Shin was born into a family of fire users, that fact alone shaped a majority of his personality. From a young age he developed a fondness for the fire that his family used. This fondness grew into more than just a casual passion; he became infatuated by the element. His childhood for the most part was good, he was an only child and as such was spoiled by his parents. Contrary to what people would think, this actually had a positive effect though on the boy as he picked up the things taught to him with a profound intensity because it fed the ego he had developed of himself. Both his father and mother were ninja of Konohagakure, they weren't the best but they served the village and its people well.

Life moved along quite nicely for Shin, his natural ability in ninja arts aided him in achieving above average marks in the academy. Every now and then though he did get in trouble for his actions, especially when he was caught starting random fires or doing crazy stunts on a whim. His actions were quite random, in the blink of an eye he could go from being calm to sporadically playful and excited. Throughout his years in the academy he was considered to be one of the top students, considered even a prodigy by his peers. Using this advantage he made himself appear stronger than he actually was, caring about what people thought to a point but ultimately following how he felt in the moment.

Having graduated at the top of his class he became a prime example of Konohagakure might. After which he was placed upon a squad, they did well completing many lower level missions and becoming a decent team. Everything changed though when they entered the Chuunin examinations, it was here that him and his team outright failed. Some say it was because they were too young and not ready but it had a lasting effect on the boy, staggering his image of himself, bringing him down a level. It was a good thing at least, it made him see himself in reality and that he wasn't everything he thought he was, though he still does have an elitist kind of attitude. It has been awhile since that test, mostly he is just training and doing missions to improve his skills and ready himself for the examinations again.
