My concept is a little out of the ordinary, but I hope it's not too out-there, especially since I won't get to use any cool stuff from it for a couple of levels at least. Name
: Hyakutake TorakoGender
: 16Physical and Mental Descriptions
: Torako is the youngest, and the smallest, of the group of refugees from the Shinobi World War. She stands at a meager 4'10" with a light, almost fragile, build. She's definately not the most intimidating ninja around, and you wouldn't expect her to wield any kind of heavy weaponry. Her ninja clothing is very casual, little more than the padded jackets popular among genin over shinbi mesh and shorts. She carries a few toolkits and pouches for her gear, but not much in the way of real weaponry. Unusual for a ninja, she actually wears glasses due to being extremely farsighted. Great for someone who fights at range, but not so much if you get forced into taijutsu.
Torako knows she's not the most impressive or skilled genin around, but she's a hard worker. She takes her studies fairly seriously, and trains hard to improve her skills. Torako is most assuredly a ninjutsu specialist, like the rest of her family, mainly because she's never been that comfortable with getting hands-on with Taijutsu, and she doesn't like Genjutsu particularly much. She's more than happy to let everyone else take center stage, while she carefully prepares her ninjutsu techniques. In the end she just doesn't function well on her own, considering she came from a family of summoners and was always surrounded by animals and other ninja. The one thing she doesn't want is to be left alone, and be useless, especially now that she's lost her family.Background
: Torako was born to a tribe of shinobi that lived on the edge of Fire Country, allied with the newly established Konohagakure. Her family was seen as primitive, though talented, due to their long-standing contract with the Tiger summon clan. In an effort to be more progressive and learn to get along better with their new allies, they began to send their young to train at the Konohagakure academy. Torako was one of the first, and while not particularly impressive, she was able to become a genin successfully even without the help of her tribe.
Sadly, during the Shinobi World War her tribe was seen as a large threat to some of the rival nations. The Oni tribe, a group of summoners that had the blood pact of the Oni much like Torako's family had the Tiger, ambushed her village while some of the higher level jounin were recuperating. While many of the Oni tribe were slain, Torako's village was completely devastated. Rather than let their techniques fall into enemy hands, several of the ninjas were ordered to flee and seek refuge with Konoha. Torako herself had the sealed summoning scroll, though with all of the chaos going on at the time, she was unable to make it to Konohagakure. In fact, by the time the war had ended she fled the Five Great Nations with the scroll, in order to ensure that nobody could take it. It didn't help that she blamed the leaders of Konoha for not supporting her tribe in their time of need. Now she's just focusing on helping her fellow refuges create a new nation where they can live and work together, as well as trying to unlock the secrets of her tribe's Tiger companions, but as a mere genin it's been slow-going.Specialty
: Torako is definately a Ninjutsu specialist, with less ability to use genjutsu, and poor taijutsu skills. She is attempting to learn her family's summoning skills, so she can utilize the power of the Tiger Summons like they did before the Oni tribe destroyed them.
