Enkouten, Hiroaki
"They told me not to play with fire, never said anything about lava."

General Information Age: 17
Gender: Male
Height: 6'
Weight: 170 lb.

Physical Features:
  • Face/head: Hiro has the same angular features common amongst his Clan, though arguably those features are more prevalent around his nose as his chin does round out some. His hair is blood orange and is grown haphazardly often spiking out and only cut to keep it short enough just to frame his face and grow no longer. His eyes are a bright yellow, which brings out the red highlight of his eyes between pupil and iris. One might not necessarily call him handsome, but due to the angular features an adjective like striking could apply.
  • Body: Hiro's build focuses on lean corded muscle rather than bulk. It is the body of a gymnast or in this case a shinobi who prizes speed and whip like movements over brute muscle. His body muscle is well defined, but nothing screams chiseled. His above average height though and average body weight ensures that he appears physically fit.
  • Notable Features:Hiro does not have much in the way of notable features. His only distinguishing trait is a burn mark along his back right scapula. It was obtained after heedlessly attempting Youton Jutsu outside his current skill level and burning himself in the process.
Clothing/Accessories: Hiro's casual wear obviously changes day to day and is affected by weather, temperature, and mood. However, he commonly prefers warmer or neutral colors that work with his unique hair color. He can be found wearing comfortable clothing like hoodies or tank tops in colors such as brown, white, or gold. For footwear he will often wear the common sandals commonly found among shinobi. Hiro isn't one for earrings or other accessories and tends to shy away from that sort of thing both when on the job or off it.

When on a mission or training Hiro sticks with the same outfit, easier to replace that way when it inevitably gets worn out. A black shirt acts as his top. The back of the shirt drags down further ending in tails like that of a tuxedo. Over the shirt is a small caplet that frays in the back and comes down mid chest. Hiro wears a single steel armguard on his left arm which covers the back of his hand to his elbow, a white fingerless glove is also worn on that hand. A beige obi serves as a contrast and break between his black top and black bottoms. The obi is held in place by a white sash that is lost at the back behind the tails of his shirt. His black pants end just at the knee where knee high sandals finish the ensemble. These too are black to match the rest of his outfit. All in all it is a rather monochrome outfit that serves to bring out his more colorful hair and eyes.

  • General: Hiro has earned himself a bit of a bad reputation due largely in part because of his personality. It isn't to say he is disrespectful or a bad person. However, for much of his life up to this point he has displayed a lackadaisical attitude. The young man simply enjoyed goofing off far too much. Although admittance into the Academy was mandatory for his family and going on to be a Genin was expected and preferred for Hiro, due to his ability to use Youton, he never took it seriously. It is likely more due to this then any lack of talent or skill that he is a Genin at 17 years old.

    Only recently has Hiro displayed a change. He has grown more serious in his training and his missions. He is far from a studious individual and he tends to be a little too earnest for some shinobi work, but it is a makeable improvement from before. His desire for personal growth is only matched by his drive to have fun while he does so. He believes that if life is taken too seriously then it isn't worth living. However, more importantly he has come to grips with wanting to spread that sort of ideology to the rest of the Village. This has motivated him to at advance himself and grow as a Shinobi, rather than remain complacent. As he believes the only way he could accomplish this is by growing stronger and being a role model to that ideal.

    What Hiro lacks in cunning and outright intelligence he makes up for in mental fortitude and fluidity. He does well to adapt to a situation, never allowing himself to get hung up on anything beyond his control. His emotional state is much like a rubber plant. It might bend and strain against the pressure, but it never breaks. It always returns back to its starting point, a happy and content Hiro. Because of this he has a knack for bouncing back from the trials and tribulations that life throws him. Which allows him to grow and become better.
  • Hopes/Dreams: Hiro's dreams are a little naive and perhaps a bit too grand for a single shinobi. However, he dreams for a truly peaceful country without any fear or risk of war. He wants every single citizen of Iwagakure to just be happy and to feel inspired to go after their own dreams uninhibited. Where he is not naive is his willingness to react violently to anyone who would threaten that peace.
  • Fears: Hiro fears being imprisoned. The idea of being locked up somewhere for the rest of his life, unable to live his life, unable to enjoy the simple things of life hits somewhere deep in his core.
  • Combat Mentality:As a Genin, Hiro is still learning to define what his tactics are in combat. He hasn't been on any missions where combat was a necessity. However, he has begun to explore what his style would involve. At the moment Hiro leans towards keeping his opponents at bay with the threat of his Youton Jutsu while simultaneously protecting himself with Doton. However, in the future he plans to develop Taijutsu so that if they move in close he can surprise them with sudden close quarters violence.

Abilities and Concentrations
First Ability
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 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.
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.
  • E-rank: 1 post
  • D-rank: 3 posts
  • C-rank: 4 posts
  • B-rank: 6 posts
  • A-rank: 8 posts
  • S-rank: 10 posts
Requirements over 35 for S-rank can extend this length as well.
The burn strengths of Youton follow the below scale:
  • 1-14 Strength: Uncomfortable heat.
  • 15-24 Strength: First degree burns.
  • 25-34 Strength: Second degree burns.
  • 35+ Strength: Third degree burns.
Second Ability TBD
Third Ability TBD
Ninjutsu 1/3
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.
Taijutsu 0/2[Open]
Genjutsu 1/1
Sight Initiation:
This user has learned to use visual cues to initiate genjutsu. Allowing them to perform actions, or draw the eyes to something to capture their targets in a genjutsu.

*[Ninjutsu • Tracking Device]
D-Ranked Ninjutsu
After performing the correct hand seals the user will coat one of their hairs in chakra. Once this has been done, they will place it on their target. The user can track the exact location of the strand of hair for up to 7 meters. For up to twenty meters out, the user can track a rough location. From then out to 100 meters, the user just gets a general idea of where the opponent is. The chakra in the hair will dissipate at the end of 6 posts.
*Doton • Binding Formation
D-Rank Ninjutsu
After channeling doton chakra into their foot the user will slam the ground within 3 meters of a target's feet with their heel, causing a formation of rock to shoot upwards at a speed of 6 binding the target's feet at a strength of 4.

*Doton • Dirt Cloud
D-Rank Ninjutsu
After performing the correct hand seals the user will form a 1 meter diameter ball of loose dirt in front of them, launching it off up to 10 meters away at a strength of 4 and speed of 6. Upon impact the ball of loose dirt breaks apart forming a vision-impairing cloud of dirt with a 3 meter radius.

*Doton • Wall

*Doton • Tremors
C-Rank Ninjutsu
After performing the correct hand seals and holding the last one, the user will stomp their foot on the ground, releasing their chakra in it and causing it to tremor violently for one post. The tremors radiate out from the user in a 10 meter radius, knocking down anyone standing on the ground with less than 10 taijutsu. Lasts as long as the last seal is held, for up to 3 posts.
*Youton • Kick Up
D-rank Ninjutsu
After performing a string of handseals, the user will kick one of their legs at the ground, skimming their foot just over the surfrace of the earth. Chakra at the bottom of the foot converts the ground into lava, splashing forward up to 5m with a speed equal to the strength of the user and an impact strength of 5.

*Youton • Burst Punch

*Youton • Minor Trap
D-rank Ninjutsu
After performing a string of handseals, the user will focus chakra into the ground through their feet. This infuses the ground with Youton chakra, creating a circular trap with a radius of 5m with the user at the center. If someone aside from the user were to step within the range, lava would burst upwards with a speed of 1 and an impact strength of 9.

*Youton • Minor Eruption
D-rank Ninjutsu
After performing a string of handseals, the user will cover the surface of their body with Youton chakra. Physical contact witht he user triggers the technique, causing lava to burst outwards from the point of contact with a speed of 1 and an impact strength of 9. This jutsu causes 1st degree burns. The lava hardens over the span of 3 posts, reducing the strength of impacted objects by 2 strength per post. The jutsu lasts until triggered or for 3 posts, at which point it dissipates harmlessly.

*Youton • Lava Burst
D-rank Ninjutsu
After performing a string of handseals, the user thrusts their hands forward, causing lava to burst from the ground 1m forward. The lava then moves forward up to 5m with a speed of 5 and an impact strength of 5.

*Youton • Improved Trap
C-rank Ninjutsu
After performing a string of handseals, the user will focus chakra into the ground through their feet. This infuses the ground with Youton chakra, creating a circular trap with a radius of 10m with the user at the center. If someone aside from the user were to step within the range, lava would burst upwards with a speed of 5 and an impact strength of 15.

Historical AccountsShow
Hiro was born to your typical Enkouten Clan family. He was the youngest child with two older siblings and both parents. Like many of the Clan all immediate family members are either career shinobi or perform a trade commonly found among the Enkouten. Namely his older brother, whom showed no talent for Chakra molding, is a blacksmith. As is the law Hiro was enrolled into the academy where he was found to have an ability to mold Chakra and thus was cleared to learn the art of the shinobi. It was during this time that Hiro began to show signs that he was not a typical Enkouten, certainly not one the Clan typically approved of.

The signs actually were visible before then, had people been looking closely. Perhaps it was a byproduct of the peaceful time the Village had been experiencing, perhaps it was simply who Hiro is. However, even during his time in the Academy Hiro was clearly cut from a different cloth. Although he loved his village, he seemed immune to the indoctrination that was part of the compulsory education. He lacked the pride and intense work ethic commonly found amongst his Clan. For Hiro he just wanted to enjoy his daily life and take things one day at a time. It resulted in a certain level of averageness from the boy. Whether it was in his studies, his training, or what was expected of him from the Clan to survive on his own. Hiro always did just what was expected of him, no more, no less. As a child it saved him from having to enter the ring with his eldest sister, but as he grew older and his work ethic continued to stagnate he was subject to more and more educational beatings.

Eventually, he graduated from the Academy and was given the choice to pick up a craft or continue on as a Genin. Had he been a member of any other Clan perhaps they would have allowed him to take up a craft, but he was an Enkouten. The only excuse to not graduate and become a Genin would have been evidence that he had no ability with Chakra. Since he had, he was given no choice in the matter. As a Genin very little changed for Hiro. His stubborn ideals to take things easy meant he took what missions were expected of him, but didn’t really try to advance himself further. His family did what they could to punish, train, and enforce the strict belief systems of the Clan. However, he always seemed to bounce back to his usual mood no matter what they did. By the last two years his family had all, but given up. They were concerned that shining any more light on his inadequacies would further besmirch the honor of the Enkouten. They had opted to simply ignore him, in the hopes that by doing so he would float under the radar. The break was much appreciated and allowed Hiro to slack off even further.

Eventually, it was not the rough hands of his sister that changed his ideals. It was not the pride that his Clan was renowned for. Nor did he find himself stricken by on overpowering sense of loyalty that so many of the Village hold. Of all things, it was a festival. The festival shared with Kirigakure to celebrate their alliance, in fact. Although, there is still an air of reservation for the other Village the festival was a success. Hiro was there and seeing the smiling faces, filled Hiro with a sense of purpose. Life wasn’t terrible for citizens within Iwagakure, but for the terribly poor it wasn’t a bed of roses either. Wouldn’t it be nice if everyone in Iwagakure was as happy and felt as secure as they did on the day of the festival? Wouldn’t it be great if people could hold just a fraction of his own ideals? However, as he was now he could affect no change. So he swore to himself that he would grow stronger, would advance as a shinobi. In doing so, he could serve as a mirror to the standard. He could be a role model and perhaps while doing so accomplish enough good to bring that joy to the people of Iwagakure. He knows he has a lot of work ahead of him and for once he is excited about that.
