_____________________________________________
Everything had been leading to this day. Years of training, of those recurring nightmares that drove her ever forward, of the harsh critiques of her instructors at the academy...Everything that stood in her way! She had finally achieved her goal: Becoming a Shinobi. Sure she was only a genin for now but eventually? She would become the Hokage and then they’ll see that hard work trumps talent, everyone would finally see things her way and she’d keep them all safe. But that was all for the future for now she actually had to get moving. Normally Naruko was one to sleep in and just let the morning pass her by but today she was FAR too excited to even consider doing that. The knuckleheaded ninja practically jumped out of bed and began to rummage through her house looking for something edible.

Eventually after coming upon some leftover ramen. Naruko had, had what she would argue was a proper “Breakfast” and stormed out of her house, still wiping off some of the broth as she went. If Gorudo wasn’t awake by now, she would have to wake him up herself! The blonde ninja sped down the road with reckless abandon and a grin that practically stretched the sides of her face. Today really was the day, she could hardly believe it, it still didn’t feel real.

After collecting (And subsequently dragging) her friend towards the training ground, they came face to face with not only their squadmate but their instructor as well. Naruko’s eyes went wide when the man emerged from the tree and stood before them. ‘Ah...Ah...He’s so...Hot…’ her thoughts were going a mile a minute while her cheeks blushed intensely. This was going to be challenging. Her perverted thoughts were practically destroyed however once the declaration had been made. Either prove themselves as ninja or go back to the academy in failure!? Could he even do that!? They had passed there was no way he’d be able to send them back!

Naruko’s former drooling visage had been replaced with one of furious determination. Her hands came up to her face and she clapped them against her cheeks to psyche herself up. She had been facing doubt ever since she had enrolled at the academy and proved them wrong time and time again, this would be NO different! “Bring it on, Sensei!” she shouted aloud living up to her title of: The noisy ninja. “I’ll take whatever you can throw at me. I’ll prove you wrong just like all the rest. We’re going to be the greatest team that you’ve ever seen!” She shouted while she practically glowed with pride. She didn’t know anything about this Nijira guy but he looked decently tough. She was sure they had this in the bag. “Give us your best, Sensei. You’re gonna need it!” she pointed directly at Koji. Challenging him instead of running scared from the threat.

Mizuraki almost missed that subtle change of Hideo’s face. In fact under most circumstances she probably WOULD have missed that considering how focused she was on the current situation, but she just happened to be looking at him. Was he impressed with her? Or was he just surprised that she was able to string together a coherent thought...Even when he seemed impressed with her he still had the uncanny ability to piss her off. As tempted as she was to just waltz on over there and punch his head clean off his shoulders, she still had her pride and...Well as much of her dignity as could possibly remain after waking up from a night of heavy drinking. The Jounin was admittedly curious about what Hideo could be talking to Ichika about, but it would have to wait.

The time that she had been dreading ever since this mission fell into her lap had finally arrived: Deciding placement. No matter what Mizuraki decided there was going to be consequences and if those consequences cost lives? She would bear them for the rest of her days. It was becoming fairly obvious to her however that the Genin under her charge were probably better off being led into the tunnel. An enclosed space meant that Bakuto would be able to make use of his Taijutsu proficiency as well as his false arm’s tricks. Hiro’s agility based offense might suffer but he would be able to repel projectiles or other attacks in the tunnels as opposed to the massive onslaught he would face were he to sail to the island. And Remi? Remi was very versatile and utilitarian, Remi was the most malleable of the three in terms of approach. She didn’t like the idea of putting people she was in charge of under the care of someone as apathetic and not to mention arrogant as Hideo but it seemed far safer for them to traverse the tunnels than to deal with the frontal assault.

As many scenarios as she ran in her own head to see if there was a way to keep the children by her side she couldn’t really envision one where it ended well for them. They simply weren’t equipped for long range invasions, as dangerous as the underground route will no doubt be it will pale in comparison to the jeopardy the assault would put them in. It seemed she had no choice but to entrust Hideo with their care and hope it didn’t come back to bite her. Mizuraki was so enveloped in her own thoughts she didn’t even hear the furious stomping of Ichika when she started to approach her.

Mizuraki’s focus was still firmly on the scenarios she ran inside her own head until the sudden announcement of violence. “Wha-” she blurted out in utter confusion before watching Ichika pace in pure frustration. Mizuraki’s expression grew pensive while she stood herself up. She could only imagine what he must’ve said to break Ichika’s composure of all people. Mizuraki was feeling infinitely more justified for her earlier irritation with him. “We can take turns.” she said rather matter of factly before placing her hand on Ichika’s shoulder and managing a smile. “Don’t worry though. After this we’ll probably never see him again. And if we do? Well accidents happen.” she was obviously joking, she wouldn’t go out of her way to harm someone unless they were beyond redemption, but she figured the joke might lighten Ichika’s mood a little bit. “Seriously though...It’s like he’s out to push our buttons on purpose.” she was vocalizing her thoughts at this point. “I’m starting to wonder if this is supposed to be a test for us too. Maybe trying to make us lose our cool...There has to be some reason for him being such a bastard right?” She refused to believe that he was simply a bastard for no reason, there was something more to this surely.

Rina would have been disappointed if such a basic strike had caught a fellow Uchiha off guard in such a manner. The smirk that appeared on Rina’s face while the other girl dodged her strike was unmistakable joy at the fact that this wasn’t going to be another one sided battle. “N-” she was about to speak, to pivot to the left and launch another strike but she suddenly found herself grappled. Rina let out a noise of pure confusion before she was tossed backwards like she barely weighed anything at all. ‘WHAT!?’ she screamed in her own head before rolling through mid-air and landing on her feet, skidding along the ground to see just who had the gall.

That idiotic blonde again! She was seriously going to try and get in their way? She had thought her supposed “Sensei” was screwing with them...This fool was going to keep getting in her way? Rina grit her teeth and entered into her fighting stance once again. If she insisted on getting in the way again? She was going to deal with her, herself. The other Uchiha broke away from Lumika and sent a slash of electric chakra toward her. Rina quickly jumped into the air and watched while the chakra flew past her and sliced into the nearby forest, impacting a tree or two as it went. “Tch.

The moment Rina landed back on the ground though, that was when the real attack had made itself known. Kimi had appeared nearby and performed a familiar set of hand signs. Rina’s eyes widened for a moment before she began to counter with her own set of signs...However hers were likely unknown to Kimi, as this was a technique that she herself had designed. “Fire style: Phoenix Protection Jutsu!” she quickly screamed out as her body began to sear with an orange glow. Flames coated her body in a protective layer of chakra. She had a limited time to make use of this ability so she would have to be quick.

Rina threw herself forward with great speed and did her best to pass through the fireball mostly unharmed. The protection of the Phoenix flickered and sputtered while she passed through the great Uchiha clan’s staple technique but it managed to hold itself until she had exited through to the other side. The Uchiha was scorched and scuffed, and panting a bit harder now but she had managed to take the attack exceptionally well all things considered. Rina narrowed her eyes at her target but she knew that Lumika wouldn’t be far behind to try and interfere again...With that in mind she chose a technique that would give that stubborn blonde some pause and allow her to keep attacking both her AND Kimi at the same time.

Rina formed a series of hand signs and inhaled deeply, seemingly charging up a great fireball of her own. However once the final sign was completed Rina jumped into the air. “Fire style: Phoenix Flower Jutsu!” once those words were spoken she began to spit out multiple blasts of fire from her mouth, aiming them squarely at where Kimi was standing.

It would be a bold-faced lie to say that Mizuraki was surprised by Hideo ignoring her, in fact at this point she was certain that he was just trying to anger the leaf shinobi simply because he had the authority to do so. It was genuinely trying her patience but she could practically hear the scolding that Ichika would give her...And the following one that Seiji would give her...AND the following one that Katsuyu might likely give her, it was in her best interest to remain quiet. Botan seemed incredibly nervous and she could quite honestly understand why. This was a difficult scenario to be in, especially when she learned more about just who was involved and the set up the enemies had. It was a bad situation for them. Mizuraki didn’t say anything for the time being...Though when the Kumo ambassador claimed that fighting a legendary swordsman would be fun she couldn’t help but glare harshly at him. This wasn’t a game! People could die here and he thought this would be “Interesting” it took every fiber of her being not to chew him out right then and there.

Despite the Jounin remaining quiet the scolding found its way to her anyway, causing Mizuraki to pout a little bit in embarrassment and avert her gaze from Ichika. She mumbled something that resembled an apology but didn’t repeat it. With that out of the way the serious and focused expression soon returned to the Senju woman’s face as she turned back to the group and brought her hand up to her own chin. “She’s not amphibious.” she said rather flatly. “But Katsuyu is tall enough that she would be able to ferry a large group of us across. Plus she’s able to fight at range and protect whoever she’s carrying. She won’t be comfortable with the salt in the water but she would be able to manage it.” it seemed like she was talking to herself, vocalizing her thought process more than speaking to everyone present.

Mizuraki focused her eyes upon the ground now while they narrowed to a point. “Whoever goes with Katsuyu needs to be able to either fight at range or deflect any possible projectiles that Katsuyu might miss. They also better treat her well!” she got a little impassioned at that last part. “If I were the enemy though. I would be expecting the main attack force to come from the tunnel...After all who is going to seriously sail up to them while they have such a distinct advantage. There’s no way the tunnel isn’t heavily guarded, I would stake my life on it.” Mizuraki finally raised her glance from the ground. “My clones could investigate and probe the tunnel for more information. Or we could lead a clone assault through the tunnels as the diversionary force and let Katsuyu and the rest of the group pick off whoever is left on watch.” Normally Mizu would be giggling like an academy graduate about the concept of chicken summons but not right now. The situation was far too important.

Boisterous and Exuberant are both words that accurately describe Naruko’s personality. She inherited her mother’s outgoing nature as well as a verbal tic of hers. Naruko can be quite naive and believes that everyone deserves a chance to change no matter who they are. She detests the idea that someone has to be talented in order to achieve their dreams, with enough hard work and perseverance anything is possible and no one would be able to tell her otherwise. Her ultimate desire is to become the Hokage and protect everyone in the village...Although there’s a slightly more selfish reason for such a goal: Ever since joining the academy her teachers have doubted her abilities to become a proper Ninja, this ignited her competitive spark and drives her ever forward to achieve her goal.

Naruko’s early childhood was unremarkable for her age. She was born the only child to her parents and as a result she was absolutely spoiled with love and attention, however very early on in her life everything changed for the worst. Unbeknownst to the young Naruko her mother was the Jinchuuriki of the infamous nine-tailed fox: Kurama. On a routine family outing through Konoha the seal upon her mother that kept the beast inside was ruptured. The last thing Naruko remembers is her father desperately trying to perform a jutsu and then a horrifying beast literally tearing through her mother’s body...Before everything went dark. That was the last time Naruko ever saw her parents alive.

When Naruko awoke her parents were gone and the young girl was left an orphan after the Monster’s violent rampage through Konoha. Naruko ended up having to largely raise herself outright denying help from anyone as she dealt with her grief by isolating herself from the village. Locking herself away in her home and hoping against hope that one day her parents would appear and everything would go back to normal, however that day obviously never came. While stewing in her own grief...She couldn’t stop reliving that horrifying night, she couldn’t stop seeing that beast of pure hatred inside of her dreams. Eventually she had a realization: As long as that thing was still out there what happened to her could easily happen to someone else. That this thing could be roaming the countryside killing and maiming however it pleased, the very thought sickened Naruko to her core. Naruko decided that day that she was done feeling sorry for herself, that she was done living in the past, that she would find that horrible beast and kill it to avenge her parents, that she would protect everyone and everything! That was the day she decided to enroll in the ninja academy.

The academy was a difficult phase in her life. As determined and as sure of herself as she was that THIS was where she wanted to be, it seemed she lacked any natural talent when it came to learning the Jutsu required of her to pass. But even as her teachers said that she’d likely never become a proper ninja she persisted, these negative assessments only fuelled her and made her all the more determined to keep training. Naruko became a problem child among the academy as she would often act out, out of pure irritation and frustration with her lack of progress. Eventually she managed to pass the tests through constant practice and became a full fledged Genin. Proving that perseverance trumps natural talent ANY day.

Surprisingly decent at cooking...When she’s not just inhaling takeout Ramen. Naruko is also quite unpredictable. Her unusual jutsu makes her an unorthodox opponent to face off against. She’s also far more clever than anyone would give her credit for, usually able to suss out when she is being tricked or being able to surmise a strategy that would catch the opponent off guard if given enough thought.

Shadow Clone Jutsu: The Shadow clone technique creates fully autonomous clones. Unlike the typical clone technique. Shadow clones are capable of not only using jutsu on their own but are capable of taking much more punishment before being dispersed. The user’s chakra is evenly split amongst the clones and are indistinguishable from the real thing. Even fooling Doujutsu such as the Sharingan and Byakugan. When a Shadow clone is dispersed the chakra along with any knowledge and experiences are transferred back to the user. As of now Naruko is capable of creating up to ten individual clones.

Shuriken Manipulation: A technique that allows the user to manipulate thrown Shuriken with thin wires infused with chakra. The user is able to use these wires to not only guide the shuriken around, but also make it stop in mid-air and change directions. This technique potentially allows the user to attack with Shuriken from almost any direction.

Wind Cutter: Utilizing both her wind chakra and her Fuma Shuriken. Naruko is capable of creating a blast of powerful wind that can repel projectile based attacks as well as deeply cut into enemies with a powerful blade of wind. As of now Naruko is only capable of using this technique with her Fuma Shuriken as her medium.

Body Flicker technique: Naruko is capable of moving at incredibly high speeds across the field of battle. Usually leaving behind a streak of yellow as she goes. A valuable technique for positioning and scouting ahead.

Sexy Jutsu: An ability of Naruko’s own creation and a result of her perverted mind. The Sexy Jutsu turns the user into a fully naked woman or man who is barely obscured by clouds. While the Jutsu has little to absolutely no combat application it is an impressive feat of transformation and Naruko is not above using it on other perverts to get what she wants.

Wind Bullet: A powerful blast of air stored up inside of the User’s mouth. Once released it is a pure blast of concussive force that slams into the opponent. Naruko is capable of unleashing several of these bullets one after the other in an all out assault upon the enemy.

Taijutsu:

Uzumaki Combination: Naruko creates three clones for this technique. The clones rush forward and begin assaulting the opponent. Hammering upon them with a flurry of attacks. Tripping up the opponent and sending them upwards into the air with each hit. Naruko ends the combination by jumping into the air and punching the opponent straight in the face and sending them back into the ground.

Uzumaki Barrage: Naruko trips up her opponent before uppercutting them square in the jaw and kicking them away. Once the opponent is kicked away Naruko uses her shadow clone Jutsu to create seven clones. The clones begin to execute the Uzumaki combination while Naruko and the final shadow clone jump into the air after the opponent. Naruko and the clone both slam their fist into the opponent and drive them back to the ground.

Naruko’s fighting style is typically suited for long range. Most of her techniques are best utilized from farther away from her opponent. However Naruko’s stubborn nature often moves her to the frontlines as she refuses to be left out of the battle. Thankfully her fighting style is adaptable thanks to her array of techniques and largely thanks to her Shadow Clones. Her Taijutsu is far from lacking and what she DOES lack in skill she can make up for with massive numbers to swarm and overwhelm the opponent. Naruko is a tricky foe who can attack from either long or close range and always seems to have a trick up her sleeve despite how simple she comes across to her opponents. And sometimes contemporaries.

Everything about this reeked of secrecy. The sudden addition of the Kumo rep as described by Hideo...His seemingly banal response of being a “Simple” Shinobi. It all made Mizuraki’s nose twitch, despite her own irritation and desire to pummel the rude Ninja in question it couldn’t be denied that he was far from a SIMPLE Shinobi. A member of Anbu-Black ops would be briefed with far more information than Hideo was presenting to them...His presence alone was enough to tip off that something far bigger was at play here than just a simple cooperative mission. It all raised too many questions and there was a severe shortage of answers for Mizuraki’s liking.

While Mizu mulled over the possibilities in her head as to what all of this could mean. Her Genin seemed to have their own ideas on the matter. Bakuto was the first to speak up, followed by Remi and then closed out by Hiro attempting to rally his teammates and assure them that their worries were unfounded. Mizuraki broke her pensive stare and let out a small sigh before looking towards the group of children she would be leading into the mission. “I read your file, Bakuto. I know how you feel.” she said softly before her face grew rather serious. “But let me make a promise to you. On my honor...Nothing is ever going to happen to you as long as you’re with me. That goes for all three of you. I’m not sure who you’ll be assigned to after all this. But it’s my job to get you into their hands so you can all grow into fine ninja. No one is going to be captured and NO ONE is going to die!” she shouted with clear passion and determination in her voice. “So let’s get out there and prove just how competent we really are!

She neglected to answer Remi’s question...Largely because it was a thought that scared her a little bit. If this mission came from Seiji’s desk than what on EARTH was he thinking with sending in so many genin!? That was going to be quite a pointed question she would ask her friend when she returned from this mission that was for certain. “Form up behind me and don’t lag behind. If I look back and don’t see you, you’d better HOPE I don’t find you.” she said harshly. It came from a place of fear rather than the desire to punish her temporary charges, the idea of losing anyone filled her with more fear than anything else in the world. Mizuraki’s squadron followed behind Ichika and Hideo. Taking up the rear guard to make sure they weren’t being followed or otherwise tracked, she doubted it would happen so close to Konoha, but the war had made her a bit paranoid when it came to such things.

Eventually, although they were the last to arrive, they arrived nonetheless. The suggestion that the Genin should mingle amongst themselves as the Jounin spoke about the mission was met with a nod from Mizuraki. The Jounin turned to look over her shoulder and motioned to the group of Genin. “Stay ready. I’ll let you know when we need to move out again.” Normally she’d tell the kids to take a load off but not now, she was far too on guard right now to even suggest relaxing. Mizuraki approached Hideo and the Kumo nin’s own Jounin. Mizuraki finally interjected once there was a moment of silence between the group. “Right. Are you going to tell us just what exactly is going on out here?

_______________________________________________
Rina’s cool demeanor was actually shaken a little bit when the Suna exchange student had the gall to claim that something was holding her back. The Uchiha’s face changed into an irritated glare as she looked over the blonde...It was taking everything she had not to break out of their little line and throw a strike towards her for such a remark, but Rina just remained still but her glare however, her glare never left Lumika’s form even as Kimi was assessing her. The young Uchiha didn’t have anything to say to Kimi’s assessment either, only scoffing lightly at saying that she looked “Stressed” she was fine. Never better in fact. Rina simply awaited what their so-called Sensei was going to say next.

The smirk that came to Rina’s face upon hearing Eri’s words was VERY visible. She wanted the two to fight? She had absolutely no problem with that whatsoever. She needed to prove that she was the best, she might as well start with a worthy opponent and not a foolish blowhard like Lumika. “With pleasure.” she said simply before working out a kink in her neck and allowing the confident smirk to widen just a little bit more on her face. “I hope you can both keep up. And if you can’t? At least try to make it fun for me.” she side-eyed Lumika as she spoke those last words. She was sure that Kimi would prove a fun challenge but Lumika had earned no such confidence.

The Jounin’s arm swiped across the air signaling the beginning of the battle and Rina immediately vanished from view for a brief moment before re-appearing in front of Kimi and attempting to land a punch straight to the other Uchiha’s face. “Come on!

_______________________________________________________________________________
The tiredness of her face was somewhat hidden by the makeup if nothing else...The terse expression on her face however was not something that was so easily masked, she didn’t like the idea of this mission, and she certainly didn’t enjoy the idea of leading more kids into combat...Having the responsibility of children’s lives on her shoulders, even if just for a little while, was still nerve wracking to the poor Senju woman. They reminded her too much of herself. Young. Their whole lives ahead of them and yet being thrown into the woods against unseen forces, it was a scene so familiar it practically gave her deja vu.

However it didn’t matter how long she dwelled on it, it changed nothing, the only thing that she needed to focus on was getting these kids through this alive! After all it wasn’t like she’d be doing this every day. She made it clear to Seiji that she had no interest in teaching and Seiji, himself seemed to agree that it was for the best. “Right. So-” Mizuraki was cut off when the Cloud ninja arrived and commented on the kids. Her eyes immediately narrowed upon his first comment. “They won’t be a problem.” she said rather flatly and directly.

The first of her team introduced himself as Hiro and Mizuraki couldn’t help but smile like an absolute fool at the fact the poor boy seemed to have no confidence, it was cute. “It’s lovely to meet all of you. I’ll be the best temporary sensei you’ve ever had.” she said while waving her hand in a casual manner. This was the team huh? She remembered reading over their files...Although she also remembered a heavy night of drinking that immediately followed the reading of said files so, it was really a toss up on how much she would actually remember. From what she DID recall however they were all fairly skilled in Taijutsu but if she had to make a formation she would play to their varying degrees of skill.

The sound of a figure emerging from the trees made Mizuraki’s eyes open wide and she immediately turned around to meet whoever was attempting to get the drop on them, ready to meet them with a signature punch from the Senju...However she stayed her hand when she saw just what the man was wearing. Anbu? Here? She wasn’t told about this. The terse expression from before had returned to her face while she stared the Anbu operative down. Why would Anbu be involved in this mission? Scratch that. Why would Anbu be involved in a mission with literal Genin running around!? That was the far more pressing question.

And when the man opened his mouth Mizuraki’s terse expression changed into one of pure irritation. “Excuse me?” the previous jovial tone to her voice had melted away entirely. “I didn’t realize this was an evaluation.” An angry smile came to the woman’s face as she closed her eyes to hide her glare. “I’m so sorry to make such a poor impression...Why don’t you come closer and let me show you how competent I can be.” The Senju woman punched her open palm and upon impact a small shockwave dispersed around the immediate area. Not enough to blow anyone away of course, but definitely noticeable.

Mizuraki finally opened her eyes again when the council was mentioned. The council had a vested interest in this mission? A mission where they were sending genin. Just what the hell kind of mission was this...The more she heard about this the less she liked. Anbu, the Council and two squads of Genin along with the Cloud ambassador. So much of this mission didn’t add up whatsoever it was almost infuriating. She would need to talk to Seiji when she returned, surely he must know SOMETHING about all this right? She hoped so anyway.

Aaaannndd there was ANOTHER dig from that happy little Anbu agent that would be accompanying them today. Mizuraki gritted her teeth and stifled her laughter. “Yes, Yes...Of course.” The Senju was doing her best to stifle her anger behind her jovial mask but it was crumbling bit by bit. “And how about I-” she was about to say something to that uptight bastard before Ichika abruptly approached him. She wondered just what that was about. Either way...Nevermind him! They had a job to do. “Alright. Form up, Squadron.” There was now a fire in her eyes that wasn’t present before. “Bakuto and Hiro. I want you both side by side. Hiro do your best to move around the battlefield and provide support. Bakuto’s arm will be useful for Taijutsu encounters and the versatility will make opening that Hiro can easily exploit.” Now focusing her attention to Remi she nodded to him. “I want you to hang back and assess the situation before deciding what weapon to join the battle with. If you see an opportunity to distract with your clone technique and draw some attention off of Bakuto or Hiro if they get bogged down, do so. You’re all here to support each other this isn’t about glory, this isn’t about impressing anyone. This is about teamwork and coming home alive. Do I make myself clear!?

It was evident that she was now focused on the mission at hand given her demeanor change. Well that and the fact that Anbu had a special talent for pissing the Senju woman RIGHT off. “We’re ready.

Kessho. The Kessho clan were a relatively small clan that lived within Kirigakure shortly after its initial founding. While the clan was outnumbered by just about every other clan within the Hidden Mist village they had a distinct advantage: Their Kekkei Genkai of crystal release. Their incredibly powerful and versatile abilities led to a great amount of respect as well as fear and distrust among the citizens of Kirigakure and eventually the cleansing of the Mist began and the Kessho clan along with many others were wiped out due to incredible fear of the power they would possess if left alone...Or worse, if they decided to turn on the village as a whole. The Kessho clan has very few left remaining, certainly not enough to sustain a population.

Outwardly Kori projects a very warm and welcoming air. She’s incredibly kind and considerate of other people’s feelings and only a brief conversation with her would reveal just how much she truly cares for her village and its people. It’s all a lie however. Deep inside of her burns the spirit of a pure and sadistic demon that longs to inflict pain and suffering upon anyone who crosses her path. Deep inside she absolutely loves the Mist’s reputation, she loves the brutality and the cutthroat approach to creating Ninja, and even as she struggles with herself to try and ban these “Abhorrent” traditions of her predecessors, her other half desperately wants her to keep them in place. Kori is in a constant struggle with herself to try and do what's right versus what she truly wants to do. One thing is absolutely certain about her however: Any enemy to the mist will receive no mercy from her.

The Kessho clan much like the other clans of the Hidden Mist were given their own compound, however unlike the compounds or estates of Konoha, these were far more comparable to a prison. As a result the Kessho clan like most others inside the Mist were rather insular and often only socialized among themselves. Kori’s parents were optimistic however that the conditions of this place would change, that eventually the Mist would not look upon them with fear and distrust, but as allies, assets and comrades in arms. As time passed since their settlement in Kirigakure it became evident that while many citizens respected the Kessho clan for their incredible abilities, a great many more feared their power. The Kessho clan put forward many of their own for membership to the Shinobi academy however each request was denied by the Fourth Mizukage himself, and even tighter restrictions were made upon the Clan’s holdings.

Kori was rather unaffected by this as she had no real interest in becoming a Shinobi. She simply wanted to make friends and stay with her parents. Kori’s parents knew better however, they knew that their daughter would make an excellent ninja...Her abilities with Crystal release far surpassed most at her age, and even rivalled some of the older citizens of the clan. Eventually her parents put Kori forward as an applicant for the Shinobi academy, believing that the Mizukage and his council would see their daughter’s incredible potential and finally allow one of their clan to become a recognized Shinobi...Once again their request was barred by the Fourth and the following night? The first of many purges began and the citizens of the Kessho clan were hunted and slaughtered like animals. Kori, despite her apprehension towards violence and the ways of Shinobi, did her best to fight and defend her parents from the Ninja of the Mist and even managed to injure quite a few of them, before she was finally felled herself. But Death never came.

Kori was spared the genocide of her clan as the Mizukage had plans for the young girl. Kori’s potential HAD been noticed and she was to become a ninja...But not without severe mental reconditioning to ensure that her power would never be able to be turned upon the village or the Mizukage himself. Upon his order: The young girl was put through heinous torture and brainwashing, turning her from a grief stricken young girl...Into a honed weapon of Kirigakure. Upon further conditioning and training it was discovered that Kori was compatible with the Six-Tailed beast: Saiken. Kori was forced to beg and plead for the horrid monster to be placed inside of her for the good of the village and that was how she became the six tailed Jinchuuriki of the mist.

Kori’s life was now devoted to the hidden Mist village, in body and soul. She was admitted into the Shinobi academy at long last and not only did she attain the rank of genin, but she was the ONLY member of her class to do so...As she slaughtered every, single, other ninja applicant. Not only to prove herself, but to inflict the suffering she had endured upon others. Ever since that day, Kori became known as the Crystal demon and ascended the ranks of the Shinobi world with such speed and efficiency that the Mizukage began to grow concerned with how strong of a weapon he had managed to forge.

The Kessho clan survivor continued on mission after mission, slaughtering countless people just as she was instructed and even carrying out some of Kirigakure’s purges herself...However while she continued to revel in the pain and suffering she caused, there was something inside of her that had been constantly trying to get her to see the horrifying beast she had become. It was Saiken. Ever since Saiken had been sealed within Kori, he had seen her memories, tasted her anguish and pain and it had broken the Beast’s heart like nothing else could. The slug had been working for years to try and break the mental conditioning that the Mizukage had placed upon his host, constantly trying to bring back the young girl from so long ago. Eventually the Slug had finally broken through and for the first time since the death of her clan: Kori broke down into tears at the atrocities she had committed in the name of her village.

Kori’s path was made clear. She was going to kill the Mizukage for the hell that he had put her through and for the wanton slaughter of her clan. Kori was granted entrance to meet with the Mizukage as she had done many times before but this time? There was no debriefing, there was only carnage! Kori and the Fourth Mizukage fought tooth and nail against one another and eventually with the assistance of Saiken’s immense power. Kori finally killed her tormentor and now that she had established her strength to the entirety of Kirigakure, she became Fifth Mizukage.

Her reign so far has not been an easy one nor one free of controversy. Kori has taken it upon herself to change everything about the bloody mist and make up for the transgressions of the past while also turning the Mist into a village that will not only rival Konohagakure but surpass it entirely. Kori still struggles with her darker tendencies to this day but is trying to move on from them. One day she will sit at the head of the Kage summit and the rest will defer to her will...Someday soon.

Crystal Release:

Crystal Armor: Kori creates an armor created by her chakra that crystalizes around her body. This armor greatly increases her durability and is capable of shrugging off incredible amounts of punishment. The armor does little to impact her mobility and augments her physical strikes.

Crystal Fruit: A nigh impenetrable barrier of pure crystal that is capable of fully encasing a single target. The barrier is even more durable than her crystal armor at the cost of the person in the barrier being rendered immobile until the jutsu is dispersed.

Crystal Lance: Kori is able to channel her chakra into her arm and create a crystal lance that encases her arm. Said Lance is capable of running her opponent through.

Crystal Rain: Kori’s signature technique. The Mizukage uses the very air itself and transforms it into crystals that are sharpened to a jagged point. The Crystals are able to be fired with pinpoint accuracy and blinding speeds to eviscerate her opponent in a matter of seconds.

Jade Crystal Blade: A technique that allows the user to quickly generate a blade of crystal upon their arm. The blade functions similarly to a Tanto blade and can be utilized on both arms if required. Much like the other Crystal techniques the crystal is jagged and capable of easily piercing flesh.

Jade Crystal Mirror: A mirror made entirely of Jade that is capable of casting one’s reflection back upon themselves. The mirror is almost indestructible and multiple can be created if the user wishes. The mirror is a bridge into the Jade clone technique.

Jade Crystal Clone: Once the Mirror is established. Kori is able to create multiple clones of herself from either one mirror, or even multiple at a time, effectively creating an army of duplicates. The clones are capable of full autonomy and are even capable of deceiving the Byakugan by not registering as clones in their sight.

Jade Crystal Prison: A version of the Crystal fruit technique that is meant not to protect, but to imprison and kill. A perfect prison. The Crystal Prison is capable of fully immobilizing and trapping the target as it emerges underground. Once the target is trapped within the prison, if the prison is destroyed, so to, is the person held within it.

Crystal Pentagonal Prison: A version of the Crystal prison that is capable of attacking and encasing multiple targets along the battlefield. As with the prior technique once the crystal is destroyed the person inside of it is also destroyed along with it. Kori is capable of encasing an entire battalion with this technique.

Crystal Imprisonment wave: The strongest version of her imprisonment technique. As opposed to the previous variations which were reliant on emerging from the ground to ensnare their opponent. The Imprisonment wave manipulates the air itself and turns them into crystals to imprison a swarm of opponents, insects, or even ninja tools. Rendering them useless.

Jagged Crystal Wall: Similar to the Pentagonal prison. A mass of crystals emerges from the ground in a wide formation and creates a massive wall that is not only capable of withstanding most offensive jutsu, it is capable of self repair effectively making it an impenetrable barricade.

Tracking Crystal Wave: Kori places her hand upon the ground and creates a jagged mass of crystals that lurch forward and begin to track the target wherever he or she may flee. The aim of the technique is to track down the opponent and pierce them with the mass and render them immobile and useless.

Jade Missile: Kori funnels chakra into her hand and forms a massive ball of pure jade crystal within it. The ball is launched with impressive speed and velocity and erupts violently upon contact with the target, not only causing massive damage but also encasing the entire surrounding area in nothing but crystal.

Great Crystal Beast: Kori’s most powerful technique. She gathers a large amount of chakra and creates a massive dragon out of her crystal release. Said Dragon is fully autonomous but can be directed as Kori sees fit, the Dragon flies at incredible speeds and possesses a surprising amount of strength. The beast is also capable of utilizing the Jade Missile technique through his mouth. The great crystal beast has yet to be bested by anyone who has faced it.

Taijutsu:

Dance of Jade: A technique that utilizes her Crystal Blades. Kori rushes the opponent down and begins to cut into them with her blades. Slicing and cutting at any exposed skin or openings she can find to draw blood. The violent dance continues as she presses harder and harder on her opponent with her quick speed and strikes, before finishing it off with a spinning kick to the stomach.

Fist of Amber: A reared back strike that utilizes her crystal armor to harden her fist and make it strike with diamond toughness.

Bijuu Abilities:

Six-Tailed Shroud: Saiken begins to lend Kori his chakra and forms a protective but very dangerous shroud around her body. The shroud causes her baser instincts to take control, effectively turning her more beast-like and feral and allowing her hidden sadism to seep out. The Shroud enhances her strength, speed and regenerative abilities as well as causing physical harm to those who touch the Shroud. The Shroud is capable of reacting independently of its host and reacting to threats that the host may not be aware of. The form progressively grows tails to represent growing power. In Saiken’s case: When the number of tails present on the shroud reaches Six, the Jinchuuriki reaches her full power. Kori is capable of manipulating the Feral chakra to an extent and uses it to create violent shockwaves that can be directed towards an opponent.

Wrath Form: A step up in power, ferocity and bloodlust. The Wrath form, unlike the Shroud, does not serve to protect the Jinchuuriki. The Jinchuuriki’s power is enhanced incredibly and several features of Saiken become visible on Kori’s body. The Shroud from before now pressed tightly against the Host’s body to the point where it causes the User’s blood to taint the Shroud, thus creating a dark crimson look for the form itself. The form is still capable of responding to threats that the host is not aware of but the host is FAR more feral and animalistic in this state than the previous one. Losing all reason they become a conduit of their beast and attack without mercy or any real strategy. The very act of accessing this form creates craters and shockwaves that wrack the ground.

Beast Ball: A devastating attack that is accessible only through the Wrath form itself. The user channels their tailed beast’s chakra into their throat and unleashes a ball of pure, destructive, energy that is capable of annihilating entire mountains if enough energy is used. The Beast Ball is a technique without equal in its raw power and is best avoided.

Kori’s fighting style is best described as long range. She prefers not to sully her own hands and instead uses her various Crystal release techniques to keep her opponents at bay or even kill them before they get close to her. She is no slouch at close range but it is definitely the weakest point in her arsenal. She is competent at Taijutsu and when she desires to shed some blood up close, she has no hesitation donning her Jade blades. For the most part however if you are in a fight with Kori. Expect the battlefield to be controlled and littered with crystals and to probably never be able to touch her.

Location: Training ground 17 Rina Uchiha
_______________________________________________
This woman was serious? That was the only thought that continued to repeat in the young Uchiha’s mind while she just started at Lumika...Completely dumbfounded by the way this supposed ninja was carrying herself. Trying to HELP? Rina was practicing on a dummy? What could this idiot possibly have helped with, aside from volunteering herself as a moving target. Her attacks had sounded ferocious enough that she had attracted attention it would seem. “If your training sounds any less intensive than mine than you’re either not serious, or you’re weak.” she said rather flatly. Neither of those were qualities she desired in a teammate.

It seemed that this WAS in fact her other teammate this “Team” of hers was going nowhere fast if this was the bar. “Just don’t-” her response was cut off rather abruptly by the emergence of an older ninja. Rina folded her arms and just stared at the woman who would be leading them and teaching them for the next year. She didn’t seem that impressive...She was expecting someone stronger.

Rina rolled her eyes when the woman asked them to get into formation but did as she was told. There was something about how chipper this Jounin was that was getting under Rina’s skin, not enough to make her angry, but enough to cause her some measure of irritation. When she was called upon to give strengths and weaknesses of her teammates. Rina didn’t seem to flinch.

The other Uchiha seems like she’ll be a worthy challenge. I haven’t fought other members of my clan in a long time. Her Sharingan will help track enemies and copy their abilities. She clearly has skill with a blade and is...Decent at hiding.” that was about as much positive praise as anyone was going to be able to wring out of Rina. She wasn’t known for her kindness. “She lacks any decorum and speaks like a fool however.” and that was her summation of Kimi.

The Uchiha’s eyes then moved towards Lumika and fixated upon the blonde before she finally spoke again. “Lumika on the other hand. I can see no redeeming qualities in whatsoever.” she stated rather harshly. “A fool who rushes in and doesn’t assess the situation. Whose first instinct while hearing combat wasn’t to lay in wait nearby but to foolishly blunder in and leave herself wide open to enemy attack. The only thing she’s managed to do since I met her was waste my time. She’ll only slow me down.
