I like the character, Vaulera, and thanks for the support :)
@Hyena: feel free, mate. I'm sure there'll be room for a few add-ins as things go.
ANBU (former), "Mayakashi no Myoushu" (Master of Deception) Personality:
Karasu is a soft-spoken young man, often seeming very carefree and relaxed. Much of the time Karasu seems to be lost in thought, staring off into the distance with a pondering smile on his face. He takes a great enjoyment from subtle jibes and wordplay, though rarely in a particularly hurtful manner. While he tends to be rather quiet, Karasu is a friendly companion who does his best to keep his teammates in good cheer. In fact, those who meet Karasu outside of the battlefield and know his full history often wonder how such a mild-mannered man could have been a former squad leader in the ANBU Black Ops, as well as have such a dark reputation among his enemies.
Underneath Karasu's laid-back exterior lies a soul hardened by cynicism and determination. Karasu takes very little at face value, and doubts almost everything he sees or hears. While he is easy to get along with, he is difficult to win over as a true friend. Those who do earn his friendship however can count on him to die for them, if it comes down to it. Karasu is as cold and hard as steel, willing to do what is necessary to protect those he loves. If his hands are stained with blood in the process, then it is the price his soul must pay for his happiness, as he sees it. More than anything, he wishes to shield those he sees as better from as much of the harsh realities of the world as he can manage.
In battle, when push comes to shove, Karasu is a ruthless strategist. While he will avoid going for the kill with those he can afford to hold back against, he will not waste time with honour or mercy, slaying his enemies with brutal efficiency. In the same relentless devotion to his duty, he can torture captured enemies without batting an eye, though doing so tears him up inside. Throughout his history, he has served Konohagakure as an interrogator and as an assassin, and regrets nothing save the necessity for it. Biography:
Many years ago, in the time of the Fourth Hokage, the Uchiha clan nearly began a civil war within Konohagakure. Only through the intervention of its younger generations was the attempted cout d'etat pushed down. If Konoha had been wracked by revolution, the balance of power in the world would have shifted. A war would have been almost inevitable. And while most of the survivors of the clan were those who had remained loyal, a black mark remained upon the clan for many years.
It was into this reputation for treachery that Karasu was born. More than any other, the Uchiha clan required the utmost dedication and the most peerless service from its membership, in hopes of clearing their name. While they had lost much of their prestige in the uprising, they had barely maintained their control of Konoha's Military Police, albeit under heavy surveillance from the ANBU. Thus, Karasu, like his cousins and siblings, was trained from a young age to be a servant and protector of the village, taught to do whatever was necessary to protect Konoha and the Uchiha clan.
In truth, he likely would have been happier born into a different life. Karasu was an introspective youth, often given to spending his time alone pondering whatever question caught his fancy. He did not excel in his lessons at the same level his more dedicated relatives did, but he was still considered a skilled student by the standards of Konoha's Ninja Academy, and by the age of eleven he had been promoted to the rank of genin. Karasu's sensei was a former student of the newly appointed Hokage, Uzumaki Jyrai. In his sensei, Karasu found someone to speak of the deep thoughts that he often dwelled on; for the first time in his life, he had found someone who spoke of more than duty.
Over the next two years, Karasu developed a powerful bond with his two teammates; a young swordsman named Hakujin Tetsu, and Megumi Ayame, an aspiring medic-nin. Together with their sensei, Ookami Kenji, they traveled across the Land of Fire. At first, their missions consisted of the simple tasks often assigned to genin, but as their skill and reputation grew, they began catching thieves. From there, they moved on to capturing bandits. By the time Karasu was twelve years old, he had awakened his Sharingan, as well as killed his first man. While he did not show it, it took Karasu days to work through his guilt. Over the next year, he began to harden. Even his teammates were often surprised by Karasu's methods.
Karasu graduated to the rank of chunin a little after he turned thirteen, and was immediately taken in for training by Konoha's ANBU. Even more than before, Karasu learned to do whatever was necessary to protect the village. After a year, the village began employing Karasu as an assassin, sending him on missions to kill powerful men whose ambitions and interests threatened Konohagakure or the Land of Fire. Even among the ANBU, Karasu became known for the cruelty of his methods, as he often used his abilities at deception to drive his targets into a panic, waiting until their fear drove them to slip up before moving in for the perfect kill. Among enemy shinobi, word spread of a young Uchiha who could never be pinned down, who spread terror in his wake. Several villages put "the Master of Deception" into their Bingo Books.
Eventually, Karasu was removed from his duties as an assassin, and was transferred to a position among the Torture and Interrogation Force. His mastery of genjutsu became even more infamous among the right circles, his skill at breaking the will of enemy shinobi becoming almost legendary. Even more than when he was younger, the young Uchiha spent his time alone. Sometimes, it was the same as it had always been; questions of truth dominating his mind. But as often as not, he needed the solitude in order to come to grips with his own ruthlessness.
At the age of twenty, after four years of service in the Torture and Interrogation Force, Karasu requested to be removed from active duty among the ANBU. He took up a position among the Konoha Military Police, like many members of his clan. Occasionally, however, the Hokage would request Karasu to temporarily resume active duty among the ANBU, though never for more than the occasional mission.Abilities:Genjutsu
Karasu's skill with genjutsu is infamous. He is well-known to be one of the most skilled users of genjutsu in the Uchiha clan, if not all of Konohagakure. Karasu has at his disposal a plethora of genjutsu techniques that he can use for a variety of purposes. Karasu can use the potent Kokuangyo no Jutsu to blind his opponents, or can alter their perception of terrain using the Kokoni Arazu no Jutsu. Using the Narakumi no Jutsu, Karasu can force a person to confront their worst fears, either as a form of torture or to incapacitate them. With the Kori Shinchu no Jutsu, he can divert his targets from reaching their intended destination, serving a variety of purposes. He can also create a vast number of illusions of himself that disperse into a cloud of smoke when struck using his Kemuri Jusha no Jutsu (a variation of the genjutsu used by Amegakure ninja). These are only the most well-known of the illusions in Karasu's arsenal.Sharingan
Karasu's incredible skill with genjutsu is exponentially supplemented by his mastery of his clan's kekkei genkai, the Sharingan. Enjoying all the benefits of the famous dojutsu, Karasu makes the most use of its powerful genjutsu abilities. With his Sharingan, Karasu is capable of breaking free from most genjutsu himself, and can even turn them back on their users using the Kyo Tenchi-ten. As well, Karasu gains access to several powerful genjutsu available only to wielders of the Sharingan, including the Kasegui no Jutsu and the fearsome Utakata, which traps his opponents in a versatile illusion under his control. Most fearsome of all, Karasu can use his Sharingan to catch an opponent in a genjutsu simply through eye contact.Bunshinjutsu
While Karasu's skill with genjutsu is his greatest asset, his mastery of clone techniques is only slightly less. He is highly skilled in the use of the powerful Kage Bunshin no Jutsu; while he cannot maintain more than a few clones at a time, he is an expert in using them to their full advantage. In addition to his skill with the normal Kage Bunshin technique, he can also use the technique to multiply any shuriken that he throws through the Shuriken Kage Bunshin no Jutsu. Finally, he is capable of turning one of his shadow clones into a bomb through the Bunshin Daibakuha technique.Other Ninjutsu
Karasu is an expert in the use of shuriken and kunai. In addition to having incredible accuracy even without the use of his Sharingan, he has mastered a number of techniques such as the Kage Shuriken no Jutsu, where he throws a second shuriken underneath the first as a second attack, and the Soshuriken no Jutsu, where the user can guide their shuriken with lines of ninja wire; Karasu's skill with this technique is particular impressive, as he can guide several shuriken in this manner with a single hand. He always keeps a large stock of shuriken and kunai available through use of the Raikou Kenka summoning technique.
Like most members of the Uchiha clan, Karasu has an affinity for Katon techniques. While elemental ninjutsu are not his forte, he is capable of using a number of Fire Release techniques, including the Goukakyuu no Jutsu used by the Uchiha clan as a rite of passage, the Hosenka no Jutsu, and the Ryuka no Jutsu. Karasu also picked up a number of other skills during his time in the ANBU. One of these is the Kanashibari no Jutsu, which allows him to paralyze an unwary opponent by touch.Other Abilities
Karasu is a capable hand-to-hand combatant, though his physical strength is only average. His good reflexes combined with his Sharingan give him an edge against most opponents in close combat, though his speed is not on par with a real expert in taijutsu. While he does not often wield a sword, he is quite capable in the art of kenjutsu, another skilled acquired during his time in the ANBU. His ability in genjutsu denotes both precise chakra control and a keen mind. The former allows him to use his techniques with the utmost efficiency, countering his limited endurance. The latter can be seen in the elaborate strategies and deceptions that Karasu frequently employs in combat. He is a skilled infiltrator, as well as a capable tracker. Etcetera:
Karasu is a heterosexual male with dominant tendencies, sexually. He is a passionate lover, if a bit controlling, but is for the most part vanilla.
Once I saw the potential, I couldn't help meself ^_^;
