BLUH, I'll JUST PUT UP TWO.
Name:Kurokami Durako A.K.A "The Iron Tempest"
Personality: Solid and dependable, But otherwise not much of a talker, and it's rare for him to initiate a conversation. He is pretty intelligent, even if he doesnt display it verbally very often, And takes great pride in his training, both academic and physical. Possessed of a strong will, sometimes giving him an air of intensity that may sometimes be mistaken as ferocity or seem standoffish to others, but in truth, he's friendly, sometimes even shy. Has few close friends and prefers to keep to himself around those he doesnt know well. Enjoys reading and jogging in his free time. Absolutely hates unnecessary waste of life, and often descends into a cold fury when witnessing those who kill for fun, or without purpose.
A bit of a pushover around loud, willful ladies.
Appearance: Has short black hair, parted in the front, with his village headband holding the rest swept backwards. His skin is slightly tan and while not heavily muscled, is well toned. He has black and blue tattoos That look like lines patterned after rivers or something running and connecting all across his legs, back, stomach & abs, arms and hands. He has none on his neck, face or chest though.
His eyes are a very dark, almost black. He stands at about 5'7.
Wears a waist length jacket which oddly zips down from the top And has the sleeves cut off, Which he wears with the bottom half unzipped, and no shirt underneath. The jacket is primarily black, with a silver and red pattern on it. The inside is solid red. Wears black shorts that stop slightly above the knee. Has an earring with his clan symbol hanging from it, which basically looks like a red diamond with a black right triangle attached to each of it's four sides.
Headhunter Burial: A grab and take down maneuver which dislocates the arm of the victim as the user sends them into the ground head first, burying them neck deep in the dirt. Obviously, on more solid types of ground, this technique has a much more damaging effect.
Clan Secret Technique:
In the Kurokami clan, at a young age(3-5 years depending on weight) every member is given a special ritual where they are tattooed with a specially treated ink in an arcane pattern, and then injected with a secret, mercury-like metal alloy that has been infused with the chakra of a direct family member, in an small amount(about a pound).The metal is a special alloy, specific to his clan, the formula for which is a secret they will guard to the death, and it is only made this way after the birth of a child into the clan.The treated tattoos are always the point of the injections, And are placed to align with the natural flow while not interfering with the bodies organs or growth. Their primary purpose though is similar to that of summoning scrolls or symbols, although in a more specific and permanent fashion. They allow the metal being injected to exist withing the same space as the body, while at the same time, not, mitigating some of the weight and preventing it from interfering with normal body function. Every year after, more is injected in slightly increased amounts. Over the years and through special training and meditation, the metal and the bodies chakra mix, to the point where the metal becomes for all intents and purposes, a part of the body. The clan member is able to move the metal out through the tattoos and control its form (shape, length, density, width, sharpness) to a frightening degree, through the chakra it absorbed, even if it's no longer connected to his body or other parts of the metal that are.(I.e. fragments can still be reabsorbed). Eventually, through meditation, the user can create small amounts of an imitation of the metal from their own body. Metal injections stop at age 17, and Durako currently has about 150 lbs of metal "inside" him, though the tattoos reduce the weight to less then a thrid of that, or about 40lbs extra weight spread across his body.. Though it's slows him down to just slightly below average ninja speed, it has increased his strength and fortitude quite a lot, and also helped promote chakra control.
Kurogane Fo-ji(Iron Forge): Forces chakra metal out his skin, and uses it to create simple objects or weapons.
Ase Dangan(Sweating Bullets): Creates a multitude of small spikes on the surface of his skin, and then sends them firing in all directions.
Kurogane Bunshin no jutsu(Iron Clone Jutsu): Creates dopplegangers from the metal in his body. Stronger and longer lasting than regular dopplegangers or water ones,They are basically thin, hollow metal shells with regular bunshin illusions cloaking them. Durako can only make up to 3.
Kumo no Kurogane jutsu(Cloud of Iron Jutsu):Creates a swirling cloud or haze of Small droplets of liquid metal.When a person other than Durako touches a droplet, it sticks to them. The droplets pool together and congeal to form a kind of cast, which prevents movement.
Nohara no Tsurugi(Field of Swords:):Durako's strongest and most depleting jutsu at the moment. a combination genjutsu/ninjutsu technique. Touches the ground and several dozen large metal blades come up forcefully from the earth, retracting and reappearing rapidly. About half of the blades are fake. However, all the blades that the enemy can see are fake and the real ones are hidden by the genjutsu between the fake ones so that the enemy tries to dodge the fakes and ends up hitting the real ones. The sound of clashing metal triggers the genjutsu.
Ikazuchi: An experimental jutsu Durako is tinkering with, taht allows him to move with incredible speed in short bursts by focusing a small ball of chakra into the sole of the feet as they touch down and using it to catapult himself in a single direction at extremely high speed. It uses a bit of chakra, and It cannot be used in quick succession, as well as not being able to change direction while in mid-step, though it can be stopped anytime. Currently brainstorming ways it could be adapted into more offensive uses. Makes a sound like thunder when used.
Hagane Karada no jutsu(Steel Body jutsu) : By controlling chakra flow in the body, he can give his skin the strength and hardness of steel for short amounts of time. Does not actually turn him into metal.
Shiryoku Daichi no jutsu (Earth Vision jutsu): Range: 25 yards: Allows Durako to pin-point the location of the enemy by reading the vibration in the ground. Only works if they are on the ground. Rank D
Suiei Daichi no jutsu(Ground Swimming jutsu):Allows user to move through earth and stone substances as if they were water.
Akugan(First Stage): AKA the Eyes of Iron,aka Evil Eye, and the only one Durako currently can use. When Akugan is released, The eyes turn completely black except for the pupils, which turn bright crimson. It unlocks a flow of Chakra, realigning it through the body, particularly in the eyes and brain, with the effect of increasing physical ability almost three-fold, but primarily, it drastically increases perception and Mental acuity. From the users perspective, this seems to have the effect of everything slowing down.
Despite the advatages, Akugan warps the uses mind whiel it's in use, making them malicious, sadistic and bloodthirsty, filling their mind with the urge to destroy all enemies in sight, the definition of which grows broader the longer it's in use. It takes both training and a strong will to keep these negative effects under control.
Health/Chakra pool: 4
Background: The Kurokami are/were an old clan that go back almost to Iwagakure's founding, starting with the First Kurokami, Garou. They have traditionally been one of the Stones most elite warriors and defenders, The first and last defense against dire threats to the village and acting as body guards for the Tsuchikage when he's in the village, So they were sometimes known in the other Villages as " The Cursed Blades of the Stone". However, because their Bloodline was unusually strong(meaning it's almost unheard of for their kekkei genkai to NOT be passed on), And also dangerous even to the user, They remained a small clan and there is barely a point in their history when there was more then two or three dozen of them alive at once. They purposely kept their numbers small not out of pride, but out of respect for the village and fear of what they might pass on.
On the year of Durako's fifth birthday, a group of unknown assassins somehow snuck into the village, an made an assault on the Tsuchikages home. The Kurokami, being the traditional body guards, were the closest, and therefore the first to respond. After a long battle, they managed to repel the invaders, but lost more then half of their numbers in doing so. Two of the younger ones, lacking in training, lost control of their bloodline limit due to genjutsu and had to be put down after mortally wounding some of the others. the rest were stricken by an unknown poison that the assailants had used in the assault and would not survive through the year.
By the time Durako was 7, he was the only Kurokami left alive. He was made a ward of the Village, and was provided for by the Tsuchikage, who had been close friends with his father, and was the one who administered the remaining injections to Durako, following a set of instructions left behind by the clan. Durako himself had to learn all his clans techniques and secrets from a collection of scrolls left behind, as well as his own experimentation and trial and error.
No lust for vengeance or sorrow drives him, Just an iron will, and an overwhelming desire to make himself worthy of the sacrifice his family made, and to someday, rebuild his clan.
