Is there any interest in having another player on board? I haven't played Naruto d20 in a while, but I have to admit, reading the thread and the character discussions does make the prospect tempting.
I had an idea for a Fuinjutsu specialist who doubles as a Puppeteer. I thought having a few tanky or trap-ridden puppets on the field might help with our current group, as it appears we favor more ranged tactics thusfar. Fuinjutsu feels like it goes well with Puppetry, as a way to enhance puppets and bring them out without having to carry them around, and also allows her to help others with utility seals and make weapons, armor, and other chakra-infused items. Likely starting out as a Smart or Charismatic hero, and probably on the eccentric side, if mostly because I could see a lot of potential fun in animating a small puppet (or even a few of them) with Kengakuryokou and using ventriloquism to pull off some amusing scenes outside of combat.
That said, seeing as you're likely to be starting in Konoha, I'm pretty tempted to try out a Hyuuga clansman. I'm not usually much for melee-centric characters, and tend to prefer support like crafters and medics, nor for Doujutsu bloodlines, but the Jyuuken style is a pretty unique one that I could actually see using, and their Byakugan has plenty of utility uses to keep me happy. I've always liked the Hyuuga's sense of grace and elegance as well, so I think I could get into exploring the lore of the clan. Probably a fairly stoic and serious character to contrast our more kind and gentle types, tinged with a haughty arrogance that the clan is known for. A Fast or Dedicated Hero into Taijutsu Expert and maybe Ninja Scout. Nothing too fancy in the levels, but the White Knight gives it some unique flavor.
I'm siding slightly with the latter at the moment, but I'll either one could be fun. That is, if Keelan is still interested in having another aboard.
