Okay, this is my attempt to create a character from the Nara Clan for this group.
Please let me know if I should amend this CS or if everything's ok.
: Nara KyosukeAppearance
: Main strength
Kyosuke's main ability lies in the manipulation of the shadows, a secret techniques mastered only by the Nara Family.Jutsu signatures
- Kagemane no Jutsu (Ninjutsu)
Shadow Imitation Technique uses chakra to stretch and expand the user's shadow. If an opponent's shadow comes in contact with it, then the person is immobilized and forced to mimic the movements of the user.
- Kage Kubi Shibari no Jutsu (Ninjutsu)
Shadow Neck Bind is a follow-up to the Kagemane where the user extends a hand-shaped shadow up to the victim's neck and chokes him to death.
- Kage Nui (Ninjutsu)
Shadow Sewing is a technique where multipe shadow tendrils can be created. The tendrils are very versatile and can be used for stabbing opponents, binding them, manipulating objects and even throwing weapons.
- Strategical Genius (Special)
Like all members of the Nara Clan, Kyosuke has an IQ fairly above average. If the situation arises, he forms a special hand position and enters into concentration mode. He is able to generate and evaluate hundreds of possible strategies in mere moments and can pick out the one with the highest probability of success.
Beside the basic techniques learned inside the Konoha academy (E-Rank jutsu students are expected to know like Bunshin no Jutsu : clone technique, Kawarimi no Jutsu : body replacement technique, Henge no Jutsu : transformation technique) Kyosuke does not master yet any other jutsus or elemental attack.
He does not know any Genjutsu techniques, even if he has basic knowledge of the different techniques existing, and how to snap out of them. He has classic capacities for hand to hand combat, but no knowledge of Taijutsu movements.Bloodline/Clan
Member of the Nara Clan, only son of the family header, Nara Hiroshi.
This clan from Konoha Village is known for its ability to manipulate their shadow. With this ability the clan member can attach their shadow to the shadow of another individual, and then take control of the user, resulting in the affected person replicating or "shadowing" the exact movements in mirror form of the clan member. The Nara clan have worked along side the Akimichi and Yamanaka clans for many generations. With each new generation, the clan member swears an oath to defend the honor of the previous generation and also raise a new generation to look after the village.Biog
The Nara's Clan members had taken an important part in the Great Ninja Wars that had happened about 10 years ago.
The value brought by this Family, beside the use of their secret technique, was their faculty to create military strategies in battle. Kyosuke's father (Hiroshi) and uncle (Shoha) participated in this war and had contributed to a great extent to the survival of the Hidden Leaf Village, Konoha.
In order to train ninjas as great as these elders, it seemed natural to the eyes of the Hokage and of his advisors, that Kyosuke was asked to enter the academy. If the promise to defend the honor of the Nara's family is important, if not vital, in Kyosuke's eyes, his lack of motivation has been evident inside the academy, until he passed the Chuunin exam.
He maintained a correct level, without making extreme efforts, which had upset some of his teachers and succeeded in a number of D-class missions before being presented for the first time for the Chuunin exam.
Despite the encouragements of his family, Kyosuke didn't prepare himself fully for the challenge represented by this exam, and was, like other students, assigned to be a member of a group for the duration of the second stage of this exam. The first stage, written task, was passed without problems, and it is during the field stage that Kyosuke's personality, hiding beneath his apparent laziness, had to surface.
His teammates were badly injured during this stage, almost resulted in their failure for the exam. Kyosuke felt responsible for their wounds (he felt he didn't prepare enough). It is then that his strategic abilities helped them going through the second stage of this exam. Ever since, Kyosuke made the vow to never let any member of a group he'd be part of, to be severely injured -or die, making his best so that their mission would be flawless.Personality
Kyosuke is extremely lazy and hard to motivate, he enjoys peace and quiet. Especially sleep, his favourite passtime, the second being to observe forms created by clouds up in the sky, and the third playing strategic games. He is a fairly simple person, easy going, who doesn't ask for much or care for much. He dislikes tasks he finds pointless and meaningless, he finds them dead end, without goal. But when Kyosuke must act, he will do so decisively and in the aid of those he cares about.
He finds most women are troublesome, and feels that men like him should be the ones protecting them and not the other way around.
Strengths and flaws
Kyosuke's strong points lie within the use of his shadow technique, but this technique can be limited by environmental conditions.
He is also clever in battle, and can be a good asset when setting up military strategies. Even if he is friendly, his personality can confuse people who don't know him in depth, his continuous remark of how troublesome a task may be, how he is annoyed by the bossy attitude of certain persons, could upset his entourage.
He has not learned yet the techniques to create medical potions, another specialty of the Nara Clan, especially his uncle, Shoha, but is definitely interested in doing so.
Finally, he is not really gifted in Taijustus, or hand to hand combat. In addition the use of his shadow technique implies he should always stay at a reasonable range from his opponent.
Another of Kyosuke's flaw is the fact that he vowed to prevent the ones he care about to be hurt or injured, even if it implies he has to make a self-sacrifice or take a hard decision.
