13 | SHE / HER | 4'10 - 147.32 cm | 94.6 lbs - 43 kg

Physical Features:
Kayo is scrawny, fragile, pale, and has been confused for a sick child more often than not. She swears she tries to eat more or catch a tan, but none of these efforts have changed her appearance by much more than a bloated belly and sunburns. She often piles on layers and layers of clothing to protect her from the harsh rays of the sun and to add some weight to her and always carries a jar of aloe vera in her pouch.

She has a very feminine face—big, innocent blue eyes that shine like crystals, long thick lashes, a tiny nose, and plump lips. She has been praised for her appearance many times and is often told she looks just like her mother. She has straight pale blonde hair that she's grown past her waist. She usually wears it in pigtails on the top of her head but will sometimes use more elaborate hairstyles.

She has a light airy voice and can hold a tune. However, when she gets too excited her voice turns shrill and can be annoying.

Though her demeanor says otherwise, Kayo is not a proper lady. She doesn't care that her parents have taught her how to sit like a lady, or how to tie her hair up so it doesn't get into her food; life is short, and she expects to live it the way everybody else does—happy. And if being happy meant doing as she pleased and having fun, then so be it!

Kayo is a loud bundle of energy too wild for her body to contain. She is a free spirit who struggles with the rules and authority that bind her to the world. She is talented, and could very much settle down as an artisan if she wanted to. She struggles to stay concentrated on one thing and constantly moves where the wind takes her.

She is friendly and wouldn't hesitate to extend a hand out to those who need her. Kayo would go the extra way for people and trusts very easily. She wears her heart on her sleeve and isn't afraid of the world that wants to break it. She also dreams of a better world, one that doesn't have silly traditions she's forced to follow. She has a rebellious soul and isn't afraid of standing up for what she believes is right.

Kayo sucks at confronting herself. When faced with problems or worries she can't solve, she bundles them up shoves them into the deepest corners of her mind hoping they'd never resurface. Out of sight, out of mind, right? She is troubled by the thoughts of being grounded and panics whenever she feels she is being trapped.

In combat, Kayo would never attack unless she is being attacked. Knowing she isn't as physically strong as others, she tries her best to play defensive and keep her distance. She doesn't have many resources, so she tries to make do with what she has.

First Ability
Born to the Shoshiki clan, this user is able to utilize Glass Release, a fusion composed of Doton and Raiton, and can make and use any custom or archived jutsu that require Garaton. Garaton has a shattering effect.
Passive (Shattering)Show
Garaton structures are sharp, making good weapons and have a natural capability to shatter. Unlike most techniques, all garaton jutsu shatter when destroyed, which allows them to cause damage upon their destruction. The shattering nature of Garaton means that, when destroyed, the technique explodes with 1/3 the strength of whatever destroyed it. This means if a 3 strength attack does the final bit of damage of a garaton shield, it would explode with 1 strength, but if it a 40 strength attack damaged the shield, it would explode with 12 strength. However, if a Garaton attack is not destroyed, after x number of posts pasts, it will explode with x strength, where x is equal to 1/3 the strength of the Garaton technique rounded up. This throws glass around, which can impale and damage opponents, or even the user if poorly executed. This makes Garaton a volitile offensive and defensive element.
Second Ability ----------
Third Ability ----------

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.
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)Show
Raiton 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
This concentration allows for the user to user chakra to affect the biological processes of a living creature. This includes modifying, speeding up, or slowing down the biological processes. Iijutsu is known for it's advanced nature and requires precise chakra control to work effectively. It can be differentiate from normal techniques by the faint light green colour of the chakra used in Iijutsu techniques.

Basic JutsuShow
*[Basic Jutsu • Clone Technique]
E-Ranked Ninjutsu
After completing a set of handseals, the user forms a slight chakra 'body', thus creating a single, massless clone. The clone created from this technique is very basic and will dissipate when hit with anything. These clones do not possess vital signs or a unique chakra signature, meaning they don't disrupt the environment, and anything on their person is superficial. The clone has 1 in each stat. They are limited to basic movements.

*[Basic Jutsu • Transformation Technique]
E-Ranked Ninjutsu
After completing the needed handseals, the user of this technique will be able to alter their physical appearance to match that of another person. By consistently emitting chakra throughout their body, the user is able to keep their appearance adjusted at the cost of their stamina draining over time. As this technique is quite strenuous to uphold, experienced shinobi may see more clearly through this delusive disguise. This technique lasts for a number of posts equal to that of the user's (stamina/2).

*[Basic Jutsu • Chakra Kai]
E-Ranked Ninjutsu
A jutsu used with the purpose of activating seals and a range of devices and weapons, this technique begins with a single handseal. Once this has been performed, the user will focus a dollop of their chakra into what they are looking to activate in order to complete the task. Seals activated with this technique must be within 20 + (Control/2) meters of the user's position.

b]*[Basic Jutsu • Act of Tree Climbing][/b]
D-Ranked Ninjutsu
By focusing chakra into his/her feet, the user is able to walk up trees and other vertical surfaces in a similar fashion to walking along the ground. This chakra amount must be precise, and although all shinobi learn this technique, the user's control stat will determine how well this jutsu can be executed. Users with low control 2 or lower will often fall during the use of this technique, while users with average control 3 or higher will be able to use this technique functionally. It lasts for a number of posts equal to the user's stamina stat.

*[Basic Jutsu • Act of Water Surface Walking]
D-Ranked Ninjutsu
A variation of the Act of Tree Climbing technique, this jutsu requires the user to focus a precise and balanced amount of charka into the soles of his/her feet. By doing so, the user is able to walk on the surface of water as though it were a solid surface. Users with low control 2 or lower are much more likely to fall through the surface of the water, while users with average control 3 or higher will be able to use this technique functionally. It lasts for a number of posts equal to the user's stamina stat.

*[Basic Jutsu • Kai Release]
D-Ranked Ninjutsu
A rather simple technique that allows the user to escape from a genjutsu. The stat requirements for this technique can be found in the genjutsu rules.

*[Basic Jutsu • Change of Body Stance Technique]
D-Ranked Ninjutsu
After completing the necessary handseals, the user is able to quickly substitute his/her body with a nearby object that is at least 2/3rds his/her size, but no bigger than their body. This substitution allows the object to take the force of the attack that was meant for the user, additionally allowing the user to create distance between him/her and the opponent. The object used in this jutsu may not be objects that are imbued with chakra or controlled by it, and they may also only be single, solid objects within a 20 metre radius of the user. This technique may only be used a total of one time in a single thread, give or take how many times Shunshin no Jutsu has already been used.
~ [Glass Element • Break]
D-Rank Ninjutsu
After forming a one handed seal and touching a piece of glass, the user will cause the glass to crack and break apart, falling to the ground in shards, negating Garaton's passive shattering effect. This cannot be used on another clan member's glass.

~ [Glass Element • Make]
D-Rank Ninjutsu
After forming the needed hand seals and flooding their mouth with chakra, the user will begin to create malleable glass. The glass may then be spit out and formed over the next post as it hardens at 1 speed. This technique makes enough glass for four kunai with 9 strength.

~ [Glass Element • Sticky Bomb]
D-Rank Ninjutsu
After forming the needed hand seals and flooding their mouth with chakra, the user will gather malleable glass, much like [Glass Element • Make]. The user will then spit the malleable glass into their hand in a baseball-sized mass, but will not shape it. Instead, they will throw the malleable glass at an opponent, utilizing their physical abilities, though sub-par, to hopefully damage an opponent. If the glass hits an opponent, it will stiffen movement while it sticks to them until it hardens with 5 strength. After the glass has hardened, it is rather easy to remove, but if shattered, will explode as Garaton does. This can also be used to stick to a surface other than skin for demolition purposes.

~ [Glass Element • Shrapnel Bomb]
D-Rank Ninjutsu
After forming the needed hand seals and flooding their mouth with chakra, the user will gather malleable glass, much like [Glass Element • Make], but giving it explosive properties. The user will then spit the malleable glass into their hand in a baseball-sized mass, and will shape it into a ball. Then, they will throw the hardened glass at an opponent, it will shatter on impact with 5 strength, sending shards of glass flying over a 2m area.

~ [Glass Element • Shatter Away]
D-Rank Ninjutsu
After forming the needed hand seals and focusing chakra on any glass jutsu, the user can imbue it with chakra. Should the jutsu be shattered within the next 3 posts, it will always shatter away from the user, regardless of the direction it was destroyed from.

*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.

*Raiton • Static Shroud
D-Ranked Raiton Jutsu
After performing the correct hand seals the user covers their body in a layer of visible static which crackles around them for 4 posts. Anything which comes within 6 inches of their body will be repelled with a force of 5 strength and have the Raiton Shocking effect applied.

After performing the correct hand seals, the user will create a copy of themselves out of Raiton chakra. The clone will be able to move with the stats labelled below, while also exploding with the force of a single exploding tag upon death (which also applies the raiton passive effect). The clone will only last for 3 posts.
Taijutsu: 2
Stamina: 1
Strength: 1
Speed: 2

~ [Glass Element • Mirror Wall]
C-Rank Ninjutsu
After forming the needed hand seals, the user will focus on a 3m wide area within 5 meters of them. From the ground a wall of glass 1m thick will grow at 10 speed, with 10 strength.

~[Glass Element • Glass Field
C-Rank Ninjutsu
After forming the necessary hand seals, the user will begin spitting up 5 baseball sized balls of glass over the course of the next 2 posts, and spitting them out at 5 speed. While they only impact with 1 strength, they each explode over a 2m area with 1 strength, throwing shards of glass all over the ground. This can make it harder to fight, and more dangerous to be thrown to the ground.

~ [Glass Element • Glass Shuriken]
C-Rank Ninjutsu
After forming the needed hand seals and thrust their hands forward, causing 4 shuriken of glasses to shoot out of their arms at 10 speed, slicing into whatever they impact with 10 strength.

*Doton • Landmine
C-Rank Ninjutsu

For the next three posts if anyone steps on that area it will explode with a force equal to a standard C-Rank explosion.

*Raiton • Sky Spear
C-ranked Raiton Jutsu
After performing the correct hand seals, the user will create a two meter long rod of lightning in their hand. They are then able to launch it at 15 speed in a single direction. Upon contact the spear will explode with the force of a single explosive tag and apply the Raiton shocking effect. If it has not been launched by the end of the second post it will dissipate.
*[Iijutsu • Blood Clot Technique]
D-Ranked Ninjutsu
This highly useful field technique is applied to bleeding wounds to help encourage the coagulation of the blood. After focusing chakra into his/her hands, the user will hover them over the bleeding wound and begin to channel chakra through it. The chakra will began to thicken the blood, causing it to clot. Wounds must be dealt with one at a time, and the number of wounds that can be tended to within the three (3) posts that this technique lasts depends on their size. Small wounds take very little time to clot, while moderate wounds take one (1) post of concentration to clot, and large wounds take two (2) posts to clot. Although this technique stops the bleeding, the wound remains vulnerable and will require further care after this has been performed.

Had Shoshiki Nao screamed any louder, the compound would have shattered into millions of pieces of broken glass. Kayo's birth was not easy. Nao had only asked for one midwife but eventually had seven at her bedside to restrain her from thrashing about. Her husband tried as much as possible to calm her down, but until the baby popped out it seemed that not even all the strength in the world could ease the restless Nao.

It took seventeen hours of labor until Kayo was crying in her parents' arms. She was a tiny baby, born with a head full of golden hair and eyes as clear as crystal. Her parents would treasure these moments of tranquility.

It definitely didn't last long. Kayo had grown up to be a stubborn individual, rowdier than most of the Shoshiki children their age. Shoshiki Hiroaki had even jokingly questioned his daughter's parentage as she seemed to lack the delicateness possessed by both men and women of the Shoshiki clan.

Her parents were both esteemed artisans from the main house who, by a longshot, hoped their daughter would follow their path. Their dreams slowly diminished over the years as they watched their child forcefully play outdoors, often coming home with blisters and burns from the sun. It seemed that none of their parenting tricks could keep their child from wandering about, and so they learned to stock up on aloe vera and pray for the day she matured into a lady.

It came as no surprise to anyone when a few years later Kayo asked—no, begged them to enroll her into the ninja academy. Begrudgingly, they accepted but warned her that she wouldn't be as physically strong as the other children. That didn't seem to shatter her hopes, and she spent days fantasizing about what it meant to be a ninja.

She didn't expect to struggle so hard. She didn't expect to struggle at all. The reality was different, however, and the distinction in the physical strength she lacked was apparent when it came to more difficult tasks. She found herself annoyed, angry with the body she was in and made it her goal to catch up with everyone else. She tried to take as little breaks as possible and pushed herself well past her breaking point.

She was sent to medical care not long after.

Being confined in her bedroom with her parents constantly nagging her made her want to hit things. The deeply rooted frustration and restlessness from being forced to stay still manifested a new kind of energy within her. At will, her body seemed to expel glass. It was a power she always knew she had but never presented itself until this very moment. She had never learned how to control it or how to make glass, she's only up to this point stared longingly at her parents using their kekkei genkai and only wanted to be like them. Now that it was here, she was ecstatic! Suddenly, there was something she could bring to the table.

She was back in the academy as soon as she fully recovered. She had long accepted that she would never be as strong as the other students in her class, her body was physically incapable of producing that level of strength. She was practically glass, and yet, that would be her strength. Instead of fighting against her body, she needed to make do with what she had.

She spent more time resting instead of training, and for the times she did train she made sure she used her energy and strength efficiently. Her grades were improving and as soon as she knew she was graduating, she rushed home to tell her parents the good news.

They had news of their own. They had finally found a suitable member of the branch family to take their daughter's hand in marriage. Kayo knew the day would come, it was tradition, yet she couldn't help but feel confined to the strange tradition. Her life had only just begun and yet there were plans being made without her consent. It made her realize how much of the world she couldn't see, simply because of silly family traditions she never agreed to be a part of from the very beginning.

Still, she accepted, with her fingers crossed behind her back.
