Enkouten, Kizami
"That's why no one will remember your name."

General Information Age: 18
Gender: Male
Height: 6'0
Weight: 180

Physical Features:
  • Face/head: Kizami's face bears strong, angular features typical of the Enkouten clan, and he has a scruffy looking goutee kept clean and neat. His blond hair falls down slightly past his shoulders and is kept parted down the middle, while his red eyes are both entrancing and terrifying to one who beholds them.
  • Body: Kizami's body is quite muscular, showing that the young man takes his physical training rather seriously. His skin is tan, another typical trait from his clan's heritage, and a look at his skin would reveal various scars, most from burns involving either the use of Youton or some manner of forging accident.
  • Notable Features:Kizami has a tattoo on his right shoulderblade of the Enkouten clan symbol, and across his face is a scar given to him on his first bear hunt. The scar starts at the top of the left eyebrow and runs diagonally across the bridge of his nose, ending am inch or so under his right eye.
Clothing/Accessories: While his everyday attire changes from day to day, Kizami prefers to wear simple clothing, as is custom within the Enkouten clan. His mission attire rarely changes much though, and this usually consists of a simple leather breastplate that leaves his arms exposed for freedom of movement and potential fuuinjutsu tattoos. This breastplate comes down in the form of a leather protective skirt, and he wears simple black pants made from wool underneath all of this. His footwear is also simple, a pair of brown leather boots reinforced to prevent ankle rolling or any form of accidental piercing into his feet.

Regardless of whether he is on mission or not, there are three things which never leave his side. First, there is his long red cape, which is dyed with the blood of the first bear he ever hunted. It trails down to his heels and is quite heavy, being made of thick wool, and thus it serves well to keep him warm in Iwa's climate. second, he wears a large metallic bracer on his right arm, with various carvings in the steel to signify his passion and talent in cooking. The metal itself is actually the melted down metal from the very first cooking utensils he ever used, and the bracer is lined with the fur of the first deer he ever hunted. This bracer covers his entire forearm, leaving only the wrist uncovered for dexterity's sake. Lastly, tied on his left bicep is his crimson brand band, keeping track of his career as an Enkouten shinobi.

Personality:
  • General: Kizami is a pretty average shinobi all things considered; He's personable and sociable when he wants to be, stern and serious when he needs to be, and he takes his career as seriously as any shinobi should. He can be the jokester or the taskmaster whenever the situation calls for it, and while he doesn't prefer it, he can even be the manipulator if he needs to be. But above all of these things, the man has a passion for the various skills that he has honed over the years, and is a fiercely loyal comrade in arms.

    His most notable skill is his cooking talent, with forging a close second and hunting a distant third. The man is a masterful chef, capable of perparing meals fit for a daimyo with only the barest of ingredients as though it were second nature. His skills in forging are such that he has forged all of his own weaponry, and continues to do so, while also using the skill to make some money on the side and bolster the strength of his ally's equipment arsenals. And his hunting, while not his primary focus by any means, is enough that he has spent weeks in the wilderness living solely off the land and whatever prey he managed to catch. Instead of wearing a multitude of memoribilia to represent all of these skills, Kizami combined all of them into a single piece of jewelry; a bracelet on his left wrist, forged from the metal of his first cooking set and lined with the fur of the first bear he ever hunted.

    Kizami does have a certain arrogance about him from time to time, but it's the kind of arrogance that is earned through years of success after success in all of his walks of life. Everything from his various skillsets to his shinobi career, to his friendships and relationships, and even his personal growth in shinobi arts; Kizami has been almost nothing but successful in all of his endeavors. As such, it's not uncommon for him to speak as though he knows better than someone else, even superior shinobi from time to time. However, he still strives to forge powerful bonds of friendship with his allies whenever possible, and would do anything within his power to ensure that other shinobi feel the same success that he has felt throughout his years as a shinobi of Iwagakure.
  • Hopes/Dreams: Kizami wishes to prove himself invaluable to Iwagakure, to the point where it is clear to him that without Kizami, Iwagakure would not be where it is today. He wants everyone to know his name and his deeds to be the stuff written about in history books.
  • Fears: Utter failure with no chance of repairing the situation. Kizami has never felt true failure, and is very ill prepared for dealing with it.
  • Combat Mentality:While Kizami's physical appearance and build lend themselves to one who is focused on physical combat, Kizami is actually an expert in the use of elemental ninjutsu of various kinds. Not only can he utilize his clan's Kekkei Genkai, he is also a masterful manipulator of Kouton, and has combined the metal release with his clan's Lava release to create his own personal release: YoKouton. All of this combined with his impressive speed and perceptive abilities makes Kizami a powerful opponent.

Attached to Kizami's right hip is a small cylinder of metal, about 3 inches tall, that dangles from his belt on a pin. By pulling this cylinder from his hip and flicking a small bit of metal at the end of it, the entire cylinder will extend out in both directions, forming a 6'6 foot long staff. The staff, forged by Kizami himself, is empowered by his chakra, granting it a strength of 30, and is considered a Kouton jutsu though it is a permanent weapon. As such, it retains Kouton's passive at all times, and can be influenced by other techniques such as Youkouton and Kouton jutsu to alter the weapon.

Abilities: 1/3Show
Enkouten:
Youton
Born to the Enkouten clan, this user is able to utilize Lava Release, a fusion composed of Doton and Katon, and can make and use any custom or archived jutsu that require Youton. Youton has a melting effect.
Passive (Melting/Hardening)Show
Youton melts in all its techniques, making it a powerful offensive and defensive ability. Enkouton are resistant to Youton for short periods of time, but can be just as damaged by it as a normal person, even by their own techniques, if exposed for too long. The melting quality of Youton burns at such an high temperature that it tends to encapsulate everything in it's path. Despite this, however, weaker youton jutsu struggle to sustain themselves and tend to only give weaker burns to those who come in contact with it. Youton follow the same burn strengths as katon jutsu, but have been known to dull weapons, or even melt weapons at high levels, and flow through defensive jutsu. More importantly, the melting power of youton means that youton techniques passively reduce the strength of anything they're in contact with by 1/4th th strength of the youton jutsu per post after contact. This means a 20 strength youton technique would do 20 strength of damage at impact, then melt at 5 strength per post until it hardened. This allows youton jutsu to substantially weaken defenses over time.
Hardening:
Youton jutsu naturally harden over the course of time. Below is a chart for the longest a youton jutsu can sustain itself. The length of a jutsu is a given, but can be specified to be less than the listed amount should the user so desire. Once hardened, Youton jutsu have only 1 strength, being extremely brittle.

ConcentrationsShow
Ninjutsu Concentrations: 4/6Show
Doton:
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.
Kouton Affinity:
Kouton Affinity
A character with this concentration is able to utilize Kouton, and advanced form of Doton, and can make and use any custom or archived jutsu that require the Kouton affinity. Kouton has an resisting effect. Those without the Elemental Specialization cannot make custom Kouton jutsu.
Passive (Resisting)Show
Kouton has a resisting effect. This means that Kouton jutsu ignore the effects of other affinities, regardless of their nature. If a Kouton spear was thrown through a water shield, the spear would not be caught by the shield, nor would it be destroyed by Sankaton, or cut by Fuuton. This resisting effect does not apply to active effects by jutsu. This means a fuuton jutsu that cuts with 30 strength would still cut through a 20 strength kouton shield, but it would not be affected by the secondary cutting by Fuuton. This makes Kouton very effective for breaking through and penetrating defenses that opponents expect to protect them. It's hardy nature makes Kouton very popular amoung Doton users.
Elemental Ninjutsu: Advanced Channeling:
This user has superb chakra control, and has learned to perform jutsu by channeling, without the use of hand seals. The user can channel any ninjutsu that is designed to be channel, and there are no specified parameters in which a jutsu must fall to be channeled by this method. To get this concentration the user must be an Elemental Ninjutsu Specialist, and have picked Control as one of their specialized stats.
Yokouton (Molten Metal):
An elemental style combining Youton and Kouton, Yokouton techniques create molten hot, liquified metal that moves and reacts similarly to Youton, burning with the same intensity of a Youton jutsu of equal rank, but with the passive resisting effect of kouton. Unlike Youton as well, Yokouton jutsu harden with a strength equal to half of the original jutsu's strength, retaining the passive of kouton after hardening. However, Yokouton techniques harden much faster than traditional Youton techniques do, as detailed below:
  • D Rank: 1 post
  • C Rank: 2 posts
  • B Rank: 3 posts
  • A Rank: 4 posts
  • S Rank: 5 posts
Yokouton jutsu fall under their own pyramid, but using kouton ninjutsu, Kizami can change Yokouton jutsu into Kouton jutsu, and he can turn Kouton jutsu into Yokouton jutsu using Yokouton techniques.

Yokouton • Molten Trap
C-Ranked Ninjutsu
Kizami will channel chakra through his body, funneling this chakra into the ground at his feet. This area will appear normal at a glance, however underneath the earth his chakra will take the form of a 1 meter diameter bear trap of molten metal. This trap will spring the moment anyone steps within this area, springing with 5 speed and holding a target in place with 15 strength, tearing into their flesh and inflicting second degree burns as it does so. After two posts, this metal will harden, retaining 7 strength as it solidifies. The trap has 3 posts to spring before it is rendered inert, and the hardening does not begin until after it is sprung.

Kizami will channel chakra throughout his body before expelling a large wave of molten metal from his mouth. This wave flows forward with 20 speed and impacts with 20 strength, inflicting 3rd degree burns on anyone caught within it's range. The wave itself is 10 meters tall and 20 meters wide, and flows forward for 30 meters before running out of material. It also leaves behind a large puddle of molten metal, 30 meters long and 20 meters wide, that will inflict burns for the next 3 posts until it hardens. Once hardened, the metal has 15 strength.

Yokouton • Molten Staf
A-Ranked Ninjutsu
Kizami will channel chakra throughout his body, funneling the chakra into his staff. In doing so, he will cause only the ends of his staff to become superheated, essentially turning the ends of his staff into molten metal using Yokouton. Every swing of his staff will fling molten metal in the direction of the swing, burning anything touched with a strength equal to the strength of Kizami's staff. This comes at a cost however, as every swing causes the weapon to shrink by an inch as the metal of his weapon is lost in the swings. This lasts for up to 6 posts, but can be cancelled at will by Kizami.

HistoryShow
Kizami was born to the Enkouten family, part of a particularly proud bunch of Enkouten. His father, Kizaru, was a jounin famed for his abilities in the clan's Kekkei Genkai, and also a smith of village wide renown. And his mother, Chiane, is an Enkouten famed for her skills in the hunt, reported to have survived for a year outside of the village without ever once returning to a town for supplies. Both of his parents were incredible shinobi, but unfortunately for Kizami, his father was killed shortly after Chiane ended up pregnant with him, and thus Kizami has never met his father. However,
as the boy grew and heard the magnificent stories of his father's accomplishments as a shinobi, it felt only natural that he would follow in his father's footsteps. And so, it was inevitable that Kizami would join the academy at a young age, ready to serve his country in the name of his father.

He would find, as he made his way through the academy's teachings, that his strength clearly lied in elemental ninjutsu, and not just his clan's bloodline either. He seemed to be a natural with doton, but ended up taking it even further into Koton by the end of his academy days. He was a natural, just like his father, and that would also extend into his various skills that he would develop as he grew, most notably his incredible cooking skills. It's no surprise that the young boy's plans for retirement even as a fresh genin were to open up a restaurant fit for a daimyo; his cooking ability surpassed even his mothers by the age of 13, which was the same time that he graduated from the academy.

Shortly after becoming a genin is when the boy was taught to follow in his mother's footsteps. Being a jounin, she was allowed to bring her son out on a month long excursion into the wilderness to teach him the ways of the hunt, which he learned but was not overly fond of. However, it was during this time, specifically the last few days of this retreat, when the boy tracked and killed his first deer. Under his mother's instruction, he gutted the creature and ate the heart, as she had been taught as a young genin. He also kept the hair per her request, as she wanted him to use it for the construction of a memento to remember the day.

He came back from this excursion successful, and prepared the deer meat for a small feast for him, his mother and some of their close friends. The food was so good that not a single bit went to waste, and after all of the congratulations in regards to how wonderful the meal was, Kizami got the idea to retire that particular set of cooking utensils in commemoration of the event. A few years passed as the boy continued to improve upon his skills, both shinobi and non shinobi, and it wasn't too long before it was time for his attempt at the chuunin exams. His battle against the opponent, another genin of some renown, was admittedly epic considering their young and 'weak' abilities in comparison to the typical shinobi. He fought a Shoshiki woman, and their two kekkei genkai clashed tic for tat with little in the way of give on either side. However, it was the boy's knowledge of Koton that gave him the slight edge he needed to gain the upper hand, and with a quick shrapnel blast of metal to shatter the girl's glass barrier followed by a glob of lava to the face, the fight was his and he was promoted to chuunin.

It was only then, at the age of 15, that he began smithing as his father did. He had stumbled upon some notes that his father, Kizaru, had left behind, and after a bit of experimentation with a family friend's forge, the young boy ended up making his own forge and smithing his own equipment. He made his own shuriken, all with obsidian lined edges, and he taught himself how to make steel wire, which was always something useful to have as a koton user. After a few months of forging, he was already amazing at it, making weaponry for his friends because what he made was better than the standard issue. When he hit this point, he finally came to the realization of what to do with all of his memoribilia so far. He had all of these things showing his skills, and none of it was actually on his person... So it was then that he decided to make his bracer by melting down his prized cooking set, etching carvings into it, and lining the bracer with the fur from the first deer he ever hunted. Cooking, Smithing and hunting, all in one memento.

Shortly after he was assigned to a mission alongside fellow Enkouten Saori. The mission? To salvage the remains of a failed mission and rescue any survivors. The group in question was after a target, but never returned, so they were assumed to be ambushed and dead or captured. Kizami, Saori, and other went and tracked down the slavers who had taken the Iwa shinobi, and among them found only one survivor; Kamizuru, Yoshiko. The woman was a wreck, but the team managed to retrieve her and bring her back to Iwa alive. The site of the woman honestly disturbed Kizami, not because he felt she was weak or a failure but more because he couldn't bring himself to consider how he would react in such a situation. Failure wasn't something he was used to experiencing, and such a grand loss as to lose one's team and brother all at once... Kizami had no idea how he would react if he were in her shoes. As such, he has tried to grow close to her, to make sure that she stays safe and hopefully overcomes her demons. The success of this mission and more are what lead to Kizami's promotion to Special jounin at the age of 18.

It's been a few months since that day, and since then he acquired his large cloak, dyed with the blood of a bear slain with only mundane equipment alongside his mother. With all of these and more down the road, Kizami is ready to make a name for himself so large that Iwagakure will remember him for generations to come.
