"The only place I'm truly comfortable is at sea....
or in a bottle of rum."~Kaisui
|Height: 7’5”||Weight: 245 lbs|
|Hair: He was born dark brown hair he's styled into dreadlocks for convenience. Umiko will occasionally decorate it with beads or whatever she has on hand to make it look nicer. It tends to have a pleasant salty smell even when he hasn’t been to the ocean he loves so much in days.||Eyes: His eyes are a fluid persian green color like that of the ocean in warm tropical climates. His eyes seem to glow as if you were under the water in the ocean looking up at the sun, giving off an eerie luminescence that people find disturbing at night. He has a second eyelid that's thick and clear, that acts like goggles allowing him to see underwater.|
|Physical Features: His skin is warm as if he has been out in the sun and has strong dark tan from years of working out on the water. He has many scars and worn rough hands from years of his hobbies of fishing and sailing as well the harsh training his father put him through. In particular a nasty scar on his face recieved while he was battling a run in with a rather territorial samurai. He has a number of tribal tattoos across his chest and over his arms.
Although large stature is common in his father's family, Kaisui is abnormally tall and he has out grown most members of his family measuring at 7'8”. He has a tall powerful build that radiates strength and shows the results of his training and fishing with large well defined muscles.
His ancestry gives him a few unusual traits. Inherited from his mother he has three slits behind each ear that are the outside of his gills as well as webbed toes. In his transformed state he has pale green skin with bioluminescent markings. he also has fins on his arms and legs as well as flippers for feet.
|Personality: He and his father came to blows over his love of sailing. He wished to reject his father’s path of the shinobi, not selfless enough to give up his dream of living on a boat fishing for a living. He loves the ocean and believes he has lost his heart to it, his passion for the freedom the sea offers out weighing all else. He has an inborn desire to be around the ocean. When landlocked its as if the ocean is calling to him from the back of his mind.
Originally wishing people would let him be, wanting a simple life of fishing, sailing and going where he pleases; the naive boy who wants dreamed of living vicariously by on the ocean is gone. The childish dreams of quiet and peace outside the village blasted away by the harsh reality of the world. Slavery, war, poverty, all have left their mark on the poor young man and a hard resolve has grown within him as a result. No longer does he awkwardly stand embarrassed by his size. No now he stands proud and uses his size to his advantage.
|Forehead Protector: Kaisui doesn't wear his not wanting to draw attention to himself and give himself away as a ninja. He discarded it long ago after he left his village.||Clothing/Accessories: Kaisui wears whats left of a sea worn white shirt and the remains of an old brown leather jacket that was salvaged into a jacket. He wears a pair of loose pants held up by a belt. He wears a pair of weather worn boots. He has a leather pouch he wears on his left hip that holds his scrolls. He has a quiver that holds not arrows but his fishing rod.|
|Rank: C-Rank MN|
Primary Chakra Affinity:Suiton
Kaisui carries a 6 ft long fishing rod as his main weapon, it has razor thin wire in place of regular fishing line that is 25 ft. that's capable of cutting into flesh, and the pole itself is as hard as steel at the handle the top being hard but flexible for fishing. The hooks he typically make himself though a novice hook is typically equipped on it. He has a 3ftx3ft net made of 1” thick rope. This net is typically used as a back pack to carry fish and other things.
Kaisui likes to use his fishing rod as a whip while above the water. He's expanded his weapon skills to sabre and spears lately. In the event he doesn't see a possible win he'll try a battle of attrition and hide underwater when possible.
Abilities and Concentrations Abilities: [2/3]
Child of the Sea:Although Kaisui has never met his mother, he does know she wasn't entirely human. His webbed toes and the gills behind his ears testify to that. Although his father always refused to talk about her, Kaisui has come up with a few ideas of his own. His first theory is easily debunked as the family resemblance to his father is too strong to suggest he's adopted. Other theories include possessed mother, blessed by a water spirit, evil scientist experimentation. Truth is he doesn't know and doesn't really care. All he knows is he has a unique physiology because of his mother.
Child of the SeaShowKaisui has a couple of passive traits from his heritage. Most of these passive traits are rather obvious such as the visible gills that allow him to breath underwater and his webbed toes which increase maneuverability with in the water negating the usual debuff/penalty of being underwater. Kaisui has two sets of eye lids, the normal human ones and a hidden clear one that shields his eyes when underwater acting like goggles and filtering out certain spectrums of light so he can see through ocean water. He also has an uncanny ability to find large bodies of water such as a pond, lake or river. He has an unexplainable urge to be in the ocean whether its his instincts or something more is unknown. While in the ocean he has an ability along the lines of a nautical navigator, able to determine his location at sea from underwater landmarks. The downside of his fishy anatomy is he's weakened on land and must frequently rehydrate his body and wet his gills.
As such Kaisui can't survive living in environments scarce of water. This weakness is a 5 point debuff on both his strength and speed.
While in the water this debuff is negated. And his stats return to normal.Mother's GiftShowWhile Kaisui is underwater he's able to unlock the hidden potential of his genes and can transform. While transformed Kaisui can also dive deeper than normal humans, his fish form anatomy lacking air inside, able to withstand the pressure that would crush a normal human and implode their lungs. In this form he gains an extra organ capable of a form of sonar allowing him to talk underwater, the sound waves traveling through water undistorted. The down side to this form is that it cannot breath air.
Due to the added fins and ease of movement underwater, his speed and strength are both boosted by 5 while transformed. Kaisui can remain in this form for a number of post equal to his stamina. The cooldown for this form is half the number of post it is held.FishieboiShow
Companion Master:Taijutsu Concentrations:This character specializes in the organization of others, and has committed part of their time in coordinating themselves with pets, spirits, or henchmen in combat. This gives the user of this ability four companions, each companion is separate from the other and can be any type of companion. There is no limit to ranks for companions.
Basic Sailing:Ninjutsu Concentrations:The fundamental skill of [Sailing] indicates the user’s proficiency on a ship. This facilitates their use of related Taijutsu.
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)ShowSuiton'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.
Raiton Affinity:Raiton Affinity
A character with this concentration is able to utilize Raiton, and can make and use any custom or archived jutsu that require the Raiton affinity. Raiton has a shocking effect.Passive (Shocking)ShowRaiton has the effect of shocking, which means causes it's effect to be diffuse upon impact. In organic material, this causes nervous stimulation which results in numbness, tingling, loss of sensation, and sometimes paralysis. In inorganic material, this means that the strength of the jutsu diffuses across an area 2x the size of the attack. In a jutsu that creates a lightning ball 2m in diameter, if it struck a wall the size of the attack would cover a 4m area.
Additionally, the strength of the nervous effect on organic material from raiton jutsu is determined by the strength stat requirement.
- 1-14 Strength Requirement: Tingling, acute numbness.
- 15-24 Strength Requirement: Loss of Sensation
- 25-34 Strength Requirement: Localized Paralysis
- 35+ Strength Requirement: Diffuse Paralysis
Salt Style:Salt Style
A character with this concentration is able to utilize Salt, an extension composed of Suiton and Raiton, and can make and use any custom or archived jutsu that require Salt. Salt style has a draining effect. You must be a current or former Kumogakure shinobi, and have both Suiton and Raiton to utilize this concentration.Passive (Draining)ShowSalt naturally drains from anything it comes into contact with, causing targets to enter a weakened state. Below is a table detailing exactly how badly a technique can weaken a person based on the ninjutsu requirement for the technique.
- 1-14 Strength Requirement: -1 stamina for the remainder of the thread.
- 15-24 Strength Requirement: -2 stamina for the remainder of the thread
- 25-34 Strength Requirement: -3 stamina for the remainder of the thread
- 35+ Strength Requirement: -5 Stamina for the remainder of the thread
A combination of Suiton and Salt Style, Umiton is essentially just sea water (water with heavily concentrated salt).DehydrationShowIt carries both of it's parents passives, however the water passive is applied at 1/2 instead of 3/4, and the Salt passive is bumped down a rank, meaning E-Rank has no effect, and D-Rank now has E-rank's effect and so on.
The user has history of being away at sea and is less likely to feel seasickness on a moving ship and can maintain balance during mildly rough waves.

During his academy days Kaisui would often skip class and sneak off to the beach. He'd never get to be there long before his father or hopefully teacher found him. If it was his teacher he'd just get dragged back to school and be given extra work. If his father caught him he'd get beat and put through one of his father's behavioral adjustment trainings. His time as a child and as a student just pushed his heart further from the village. He couldn't wait till he'd have the strength to escape.
It was during one of his trips to the beach that he discovered he could transform. The first time it happened he had been playing in the surf as a storm rolled in. a huge wave came up and sucked him into the undertow. Though he didn't fear drowning as he could breathe underwater, he wasn't strong enough to swim back to shore. As much as the Sea called to him he knew his father would find him and accuse him of trying to escape so he swam as hard as he could. He wasn't sure exactly how the transformation started but he had felt a slight tug in his gut and his skin began to crawl. As he pushed himself harder it began to get easier to swim against the pull of the waves and he started to get closer to shore. Although he was elated at first he noticed his skin looked weird. When he realized it was him he freaked out even more and swam harder towards the shore so he could get a better look. Oddly enough once he reached the shore he discovered he felt weaker and the fins on his arms had receded as his skin returned to its normal color. After a few more experiments he learned it was a part of him and it became his biggest secret and trump card.
As a genin Kaisui tried to apply for missions that had him near the beach helping the fishermen. How he envied them, having a life of fishing and sailing on the sea over a life of fighting and killing. The life he wanted for himself. He became friends with the local fisherman. Though It took him some time as the'd heard the rumors about the mutant with gills.They praised him on his balance while on a boat. Out on the boat far away from his father, helping the fisherman, he felt at home. He felt like he belonged. He wished he could just leave Kumo for this minor village and be a fisherman for the rest of his life. One of the fishermen in particular took him under his wing. The old fisherman taught him everything he knew about fishing. He taught him about using the rods and nets. He even taught the young salt style user how salt was used to preserve fish. Though he hated his real father, he loved the old man as though he was family. They had a bond of father and son despite no blood being shared.
On Ryōshi's birth day, he and his father were on a simple C-rank mission to protect the old man's boat as he fished. Kaisui had gone to fish with the old man which ticked his father off. His father yelled at him that this isn't the time for him to be slacking off and having fun. The old fisherman tried to talk the father into calming down and Ryōshi’s father shoved him back in his anger. The old man fell on a spear that was sticking out of a crate behind him. The spear went straight through puncturing the old man’s left lung. Kaisui ran to him and the old man gave him a paper. It was his will. The old man had no family and had come to view Kaisui as his own. He had left him his boat and what little money he had. His last words to Kaisui were "Happy Birthday son." Upon saying that the old man died passing away in his arms.
Kaisui slowly stood up away from the dead body of the one true father figure of his life shaking. He turned towards his father with a look of cold hatred and fury. His father reached for him to take him up to the village so they could report the incident. His father’s mistake was he didn’t realize Kaisui loved the old man so much. Kaisui back handed his father, which merely pissed his father off who was already angered over the whole situation. He and his father started grappling trading blows back and forth. Though Kaisui was young and strong his father had experience and as such knocked him on his ass. In a last ditch effort, Kaisui created a spear from salt and skewered his father with it. His father just wanted to bring him home and ass such hadn’t used such lethal means. His son however felt no such restriction.
Fearing the punishment for his crime of patricide Kaisui took off in the old man’s boat and left with what little supplies and money were on board. He washed the hole in his fathers chest out removing the salt then shoves a spear through it. He sinks the ship to make it look like they were raided. He wasn't prepared to leave the village yet but he no longer had any time to prepare as he wasn't going to turn himself in for killing an abusive man. He fished along the coast to get food and sold the extra for money. It was a self sufficient living for the most part, and it helped keep attention off of him, something he needed desperately as his large build drew more than enough stares on its own.
For a while he was staying under the radar, living on a boat off the coast stopping in occasionally for supplies. He built himself a small boat from net, 2x4's and sealed canoes. He built the mast so it can be stowed away in one of the canoes. He slept in the central canoe at night and during storms. Sadly the vessel wasn't very seaworthy, and couldn't go to far from shore. He'd been saving up money from fish sales to buy himself a boat. The biggest catch in his plan is finding a crew. Hardly anyone works for nothing and most won't work for just food. He had to save up for pay and fishing equipment so they could turn a decent profit. As such he had come to shore in search of a crew he can trust and a new boat.
While traveling down in the land of water Kaisui happened upon slave auction. He was originally gonna just walk buy till he saw that one of those being sold was just a small girl. That in and of it self wasn't enough for him to intervene in the street urchin's fate. No what he couldn't stomach were the remarks a greasey haired merchant was making about how small she was. Although he himself was a virgin he still understood the man's intentions. in order to save the girl he used up the money he'd set aside for saving for a ship and bought the girl himself. He'd given the girl two options. One was to follow him as part of his crew or to go off on her own again. He gave her a few coins and told her to meet him outside of town if she chose to join him. He waited a day at the agreed spot and that night as he was roasting a fish He saw her slowly walk into his camp.
From that day on he took on a big brother role in the girls life, ensuring she was properly cared for as best he could and he even gave her a new name, Umiko. The two travelled alone for the longest time never staying in one place for too long. They'd had a few skirmishes with shinobi and it scared the living hell out of Kaisui. As such he spent more time training Umiko in combat arts. He refrained from teaching her jutsu as he didn't want her killed for learning to control chakra not being a member of a shinobi village. Instead, they constantly worked to improve her stealth techniques so she could slip away should she ever encounter trouble.
About a year after they met, they'd come ashore to resupply. By luck Kaisui had managed to find a man of strong moral code he felt he could trust. Ichiro was a young man from waterfall country, just like Umiko. Unfortunately their time together as a group was cut short as once again Kaisui had drawn the attention of shinobi. A strong fellow from Kirigakure who mercifully enough just wanted him out of Kiri. After trying to talk his way out Kaisui fled to the depths where he was almost obliterated by the shockwaves of an overwhelming attack. Knocked unconcious Kaisui drifted off into the sea only to be beached on a sandy shore after a storm some ways off.
At this point Kaisui cursed his blasted luck as a hunter from Kumogakure appeared. She seemed to want to use him though at the time he had no ide why or how. To make matters worse the strange half naked shinobi from Kiri once more made an appearance. As luck would have it, the Kiri shinobi brought baggage of his own and all three of them were captured. After a thrilling adventure and an uneasy truce Kaisui escaped with a new ship courtesy of a strange organization from which it was stolen. He struck a deal with the Kumogakure shinobi trading information on the world outside for a inside hand that would help him should he get in trouble. It wasn't great but it protected his autonomy.
He sailed to a meet up point where he picked up Ichiro and Umiko and brought them on board. Seeing a peaceful life wasn't likely to be possible Kaisui started considering the idea of piracy. He worked with Ichiro for a solid year to build him up and train him on manning a ship. Suddenly three years had passed since he'd first left the village. Shown a hard reality Kaisui developed a hard personality to cope. Now a young adult he's ready to leave his mark on the world.
