As far as physical appearances go, Maido looks a good three centuries younger than she actually is. Unbelievably pale skin, akin to a corpse, the only coloration to her skin tone is found in her lips which are a dark blood red in appearance. Additionally, the iris of the eyes have turned a deep red, with blood vessels immaculately visible in the whites. Past her shoulder in length save for the bangs, Maido generally keeps her hair in braids so that it is easier to maintain and keep out of her vision. Her figure is rather slim though this is not easily observed as she is generally under a large amount of clothing which shrouds almost every visible aspect of her hosts body other than the face. Her skin is an inhuman ice-cold to the touch.
Maido's influence on a host body presents itself in the following ways: Half of their hair turns white, becoming completely white if she takes full control over the body, for so long as she retains full control over the body. The Iris of their eyes will turn an unnatural bright red, almost appearing to glow. Maido's voice can be heard separately from a host body's voice and does not require a host body to actually open their mouth. The skin of a host body will feel cooler to the touch than normal and their teeth will appear pointier. Her cloak will seem to spread out from the host body's neck in whatever form she has chosen for it to take, protecting the two cores of her being which will typically reside either there or inside of the body.
The first layer of clothing which covers Maido is an extremely thin yet stretchy body suit. It covers everything from her toes to her collar bone. On top of this, a white long-sleeved shirt and pants. Next comes the mountains of fur, covering her upper legs, back, chest and upper arms. The fur has had many belts and buckles fashioned into it, to keep in place her lacquer armor. A black corset-like surrounds her torso, the fur coverings connected to it. The armor she wears is a family heirloom, passed down through many generations before it was lost with her. Made of lacquer, it varies from a dull silver to tan and champagne in color. Lastly, a red cloak shrouds the entirety of her person, seemingly changing size and shape to always cover her appearances as she moves about, never tripping her up. Maido wears on her left earlobe a single earring consisting of three pearls in a sequence. The first pearl is carved out into a waxing crescent, the middle of which is attached to a full pearl. Attached on the other side of the middle pearl is another carved pearl, in a waning crescent. The earring is hung by a small silver circle that pierces through the lobe and attaches to the middle pearl.
Inner Maido PersonalitiesShow
The armor that Maido wears does not serve to offer much protection in regards to large amounts of force, but does well enough to disregard things under 10 strength in nature. Covering her feet, Maido wears champagne-colored greaves and boots in place of shinobi sandals, the joints of the armor allowing her a great range of flexibility. The greaves go up and extend past her knees in the front, ending in a jagged point, though stop just short of the knee joint in the back. The armor also adorns her hips, pleating out from the armor that covers the front of her torso. Gauntlets adorn her hands, very thin in make around the wrists and fingers, but hardened and reinforced as they travel up the forearms, stopping just short of the elbow. The last bit of armor covers her upper back, concealing from view the two halves of the heart-sized and shaped containers that are embedded in the back of her current body, just under the shoulder blades. This armor is much thicker than the rest of it, made to be more durable and less ceremonial. Even this armor is not visible however, due to the red cloak the ebs out from the two anchor points.
Maido has two swords, Faisa and Lun. Faisa has an ornamental handle with a wolves head at the end as well as a larger than average cross guard. The blade of Faisa is a 1/2 meter long and double-edged, razor sharp. The blade itself is rather curved at the tip with serrations running down the other side. Lun has a large ring at the end of its massive 1/3 meter long handle. The guard on Lun is rather large, a full 1/6 meter in diameter, circular shape. The blade of Lun has three-edges that meet in a spiral. In all, the blade of Lune measures out to be a meter long. The sheathes for both of these blades can be found at Maido's right hip though Lun's is generally kept lower than Faisa's and offset a bit due to the sheer size of the weapon.
In a fur-covered pouch at the front of her left hip, Maido has 30 Kunai, dark red in coloration. In a nearly identical pouch at the back of the left hip, she has a journal, a three ink pots, and two brushes.
Emperor Reizei's Pauldron:
To the typical observer, Maido would today be considered a docile and naive teenager. To those who have witnessed Maido when she feels threatened, a much more sinister and sadistic side is revealed. Hundreds of years with little to no interaction with the outside world has taken a horrible toll on the Muramasa's personality. In a social setting, Maido is shy even though she secretly wishes to interact with and be in the companionship of others. Enjoying even the mere presence of other beings being around her, she simply lacks the willpower to actively be outgoing with them. She does not speak much unless she feels it necessary to do so. Having been abandoned by her village for so long has caused her to become skeptical of the higher-ups and since returning she believes that the village has become worthless and overran by useless shinobi. Though indebted to her savior for freeing her from her crystalline prison, Maido pledges no true loyalty to the village anymore, though remains as an inhabitant for the time being.
Fragment of MaidoShow
When threatened, Maido's personality changes drastically. A normally quite and reserved individual, Maido will become extraordinarily savage and reckless. Utilizing the full extent of her immortality, she recklessly dives into enemy lines head-on, completely demolishing anything that may have gotten in her path. Some would say that Maido is merciless, as she likes to kill her opponents quickly, yet extraordinarily painfully. In a way though, that's not entirely accurate. Generally speaking, if Maido is going to kill you, you aren't going to have time to feel the pain. The last thing her victims experience before they die is the sight of red tentacles flying through the air towards them. Maido functions best in combat either working alone, or with a singular partner. Her ability to merge with other beings means that she can effectively turn even the most sub-par of genin into a god among men. The more threatened Maido feels, the more aggressive she becomes in turn, her bloodlust increasing as battle goes on until she can no longer distinguish friend or foe. Indeed, even her facial expressions and mannerisms of speaking change when in combat or even when only slightly threatened, a true secondary personality being brought forth, characterized by slightly more pointed teeth and shorter hair, notably.
Maido detests being alone. This was something that held true before her imprisonment, but has changed drastically to the the point of absurdity now that she has been released. Maido will actively go out of her way to befriend strangers. She would much rather spend her time with the lowest of the scumbags in the village than be by herself ever again. Fortunately, her talents generally means she is around other shinobi quite often. Not needing to sleep or eat, Maido is active at all hours of the day. The nights can be extremely mind-breaking for her, as there are far fewer active companions for her to associate with at the dead of night. When Maido is alone for more than an hours time, she begins to spiral quickly into a frenzy.
Out of combat, Maido enjoys the pleasures and comforts of being in a group. She enjoys socializing even though she won't speak much, though her spontaneous and impulsive personality tends to be quite off-putting for many in the event she does pipe-up. In contrast to this, she does enjoy having deep intellectual conversations, especially about the applications of chakra in utilization to the betterment of humanity. This stems largely from her lack of anyone to talk to for the past three hundred years. As far as leisurely hobbies go, Maido enjoys taking long walks, for its good to keep her host bodies in good working condition. Maido also enjoys playing kemari. She enjoys developing new chiton techniques and experimenting with the element to its fullest potential. Additionally, Maido enjoys the specific intimacies that can be had between two lustful individuals, caring not for her partners gender in the slightest. They are all bags of flesh to her. Maido is not one to be tied down to a single partner. Instead, she prefers to have as many as she can find. The more people she associates with, the more sane she tends to feel. Sex is just a means to an end.
Maido's darker side manifests itself visually within her field of vision quite often. It goads her on and actively attempts to persuade her to perform vile and vicious deeds. Any living host body that Maido jumps into will also see these visions. It will speak to them in their mind, just as it does to her.
This story starts centuries ago. Three, to be precise. Way back before most of the clans in Kirigakure were fully developed and only the five great houses governed Kirigakure. Jouha and Zi were fairly well off financially, having moved up in the world a great deal with the amount of income they had made off of their iron. The two of them finally decided to have a child. Their first daughter was a beauty. Born into a world where warring between the nations was second nature, Maido was immediately doomed to the life of a shinobi, or at least that was how her parents looked at it in any case. Fortunately, Maido was a natural. She took to the art of Ninjutsu as though she herself had created it. She was a prodigy in every sense of the word. This allowed her to breeze through the ranks of shinobi, rising very quickly through the ranks. As a genin, she learned to utilize her two swords, Faisa and Lun, though they had not received names yet. Shortly before she became a chuunin, she also discovered her affinity for suiton and began to create her own jutsu to utilize it, even at such a young age. She developed a relationship with a young man in the Hirohito family, whom even back then were hellbent on getting their spies into as many places and families as possible.
Maido's chuunin fight was rather simple compared to many of the other chuunin fights in the village. That is to say, it was nothing all too spectacular to witness. She was very unfortunately meant to face off against her then lover, Hirohito Lun. Unfortunately for Lun, he hesitated at a crucial moment of the fight and it caused Maido to kill him.
As a chuunin, Maido was taught how to utilize fuuton as well, fascinated by its ability to cut and disrupt movement. As the years went by, she went on more and more missions, amassing more wealth and experience for herself before advancing to Special Jounin. As a Special Jounin, she and a squad of other Special Jounin were sent to investigate rumors of a new dangerous weapon that had supposedly been amassed in Sea Country. Upon arrival and investigation, there was no weapon. Instead, they were face-to-face with a great spirit, easily S-Ranked. The mission was going downhill very fast. Almost all of them were killed, the spirit slaying them without a second thought before manipulating the blood of the fallen to attack the others with. Maido was the last one standing and thought for sure she was going to die, but showed no fear. Her and the spirit locked eyes and she was paralyzed momentarily, before she fell unconscious.
She dreamed, or at least she thought it was a dream. She dreamed that the spirit had taken pity on her pathetic human soul. Instead of killing her, it taught her the art of Chiton. A revelation. This is the weapon. Being completely drenched from head to toe in blood, Maido returned to the village with her new found knowledge. News quickly spread throughout the village and she made many breakthroughs with her utilization of chiton. But she wanted more. Quickly becoming a Jounin, Maido continued to experiment with Chiton and eventually she came to sealing her very life essence and soul into a heart-sized container, akin to a large ruby.
But it still wasn't enough. The years went by and Maido continued to experiment with the element, delving deeper and deeper into forbidden knowledge that had been granted to her by the spirit. Eventually, this search for knowledge let her back into Sea Country. Having long since abandoned her original body, she thought it would be difficult to find the spirit. But she was wrong. Deep in a cave, the spirit called out to her. It could easily recognize what she had done to herself with the knowledge she had been given. The great spirit was amused, yet impressed. She came to learn the beasts name, Faisa. Faisa would continue to toy with Maido, whom was blind to the intentions of the spirit. Eventually, the beast tried to forcibly insert itself into Maidos anchors. Unfortunately for the both of them, this did not go as planned. The resulting surge of chakra was felt for many miles away, shaking the very foundations of the earth in the area. When it was all said and done, her anchor had been split into two, yet still fully functional. But she however, was not. Essentially sealed into what could only be described as a gigantic ruby, Maido was stuck in the cave, far below the surface of the earth.
Many have come to see the ruins of the cave since then, and though Maido has called out to them through her chakra manipulation, all have refused to release her from her chakra prison. To them, she appears as the great spirit which trapped her. They hear her voice, but see only the monster. She continues to wait, hoping that one day someone will free her. After all, she's waited two and a half centuries already, how much worse can it get? She has vowed that if she is ever free she will swear allegiance to her savior, even if they are an enemy of Kirigakure, her hatred towards the village for abandoning her having far exceeded a boiling point after all this time.
