  • [Sound Hiyoutori] Seijuu Sanosuke


    Name: Seijuu Sanosuke
    Age: 16
    Sex: Male
    Height: 5'11"

    Character Type: Shinobi

    Country/Village: Rice/Sound
    Rank: Hiyoutori
    Division: Mission Coordinator

    Physical Description: The Nomadic Prince does not look like someone who would make a young girl's heart stir.

    Standing at a slightly above average height, slight would be the perfect description for him in near every department as well. The young lad is extremely skinny and wiry, his strength seeming to come from pure tenacity and will than taijutsu training. Sanosuke looks every part a Seijuu and his aristocratic features--pointed nose and expressive almond shaped eyes betray his heritage easily.

    A near spitting image of Seijuu Ramei, Sanosuke's face lacks the confidence and social assuredness to be called pleasant: sober, dutiful, and sensible are all words that jump to mind when describing the Chuunin and all may just be polite ways of saying he looks plain. Sanosuke's hair is long and thin, if left untamed it would easily go to the nape of his neck--though standing makes that a complete non-option. Without exception Sanosuke's hair is left slicked back and matted down with gel, the ritual of maintaining his hair being one he is damn near obsessive over.

    Clothing: Seijuu born and Seijuu bred, Sanosuke does little to hide his desire for the finer things.

    Even on a mission, loose, comfortable and stylish are the motus operandi for the young Chuunin. He prefers black clothes with soft billowy fabrics, the purpose being to convey elegance as much as it is to ensure freedom of movement. The vest that Sanosuke wears declaring his Seijuu status is one of special value to the young Prince--it belonged to his father, the previous Otokage. Light as silk and tough as iron, Sanosuke can feel his father's royal protection radiating through the vest.

    His most prized posession though would be a simple gold rope necklace belonging to his late mother, although he sometimes is seen amongst the lavish Seijuu compound without the vest--the necklace never leaves his neck, even when showering or sleeping.

    Personality: The fortunate son.

    First and foremost, there is a large sense of reliability and steadfastness given off by Sanosuke and this is not something done by accident. Since birth, Sanosuke has been bred to be a leader both in terms of politics and on the battlefield--this is seen in his actions. He is polished and reserved in all things, a prisoner to politeness and formality. To Sanosuke, image is everything and he is keenly aware that he represents more to more people than nearly anyone within the walls of Ototown for his life is not his own and in more ways than one. To uphold the image of being an honorable, intelligent and fierce ruler is a task that frustrates and confines Sanosuke. The price of expectations and duty remain the one constant in his life and something that even he is aware shapes his perceptions and concerns with the world and people around him in ways both subtle and obvious.

    Going deeper down the rabbit hole, it is clear that beyond duty and beyond other peoples perceptions what Sanosuke values mostly is justice. He has an almost child like naivette and eager wishful thinking, his moral compass is often one that is prone to sweeping generalizations and ignorance of circumstance. Sanosuke has an idea of what it is to lose everything, he has heard stories of loss and death--but his own education in those subjects are just beginning. The young Seijuu Lord is extremely sure of what is wrong with this world, values nothing more than honor and justice--and thinks even deeds done with good intent lose all worth when corrupted by injustice. These are traits that are to be expected in someone bred to rule but his lack of experience makes his concern seem more rehearsed than genuine. At this point in his life, he does not know whether he values justice and the law because it is what he is told to do or because it is what he believes.

    Beyond both his dedication to maintaining appearance and his thirst for justice, beneath the surface of the Kage's son and all that it means to be a Seijuu, there lies a young man that is motivated primarily by ambition. Sanosuke is driven and determined, resourseful and hell bent on overcoming any obstacle within his path. He is intelligent, well spoken and well read as befits his station but he is also surprisingly accepting of others. Sanosuke tends to judge people on their merits as individuals rather than by blood, status, or appearance--the main principle being power and whether or not they can assist him gain or maintain status.

    Born to rule and keenly aware of it, the young Seijuu is the well crafter picture of a perfect prince. Adventure, destiny, and greatness are his birthright and he has an inate refusal to being denied.

    Con: -2 to Strength, -1 to Power


    Name: Bakuto
    Specialty: Speed
    Personality: Bakuto embodies the spirit of the gambler--he is quick witted and addicted to the fast life. A strategic thinker first and foremost the small and gregarious servant of Doushoku is constantly focused on setting himself up for advancement. He is analytical, prone to risk and hungry for more. More of what is suspect to change and changes often. Bakuto is simple minded and hedonistic in his desire for wealth and the path of the miser. He enjoys making deals and alliances and advocates for them often--though he is unafraid to go back on his word. This is a trait he imposes upon others as well increasing his paranoia and bias towards high risk and high reward gambles. Bakuto is as loyal to Sanosuke as he is to his goal and he wouldn't hesitate to devour the boy's soul if given the chance--freedom, power, money and respect are Bakuto's whole reason for being.

    Biography:

    I still don't know what he meant.

    After my father died, my uncle Raimei came into power and you know the rest of the legendary tale. I was shuffled off into a minor position of power, coordinating missions and leading shinobi with twice as much actual experience as myself as befit my station. I felt no closure from my father's death. He had been the Otokage. The most powerful, controversial and boldest leader in the history of shinobi kind and he was dead.Just as he seemed to acknowledge me he left me. I could not sleep, I could not shake that something was wrong with him. I complained to Raimei, demanding more investigation, demanding justice...

    But his plate was too full, his load to heavy and combining maintaining the relationship with the Naga and combatting the Mercenaries from Atama--he did little to assist me and only offered sympathy.

    Much like my father before him, I could not demand or force answers from my Uncle and closure escaped me. I could ask little of both a Kage, a clan elder, and a Shinobi lord. My meetings offered little in terms of insight to his passing beyond common knowledge and I mostly just succeeded in turning my uncles sympathy into annoyance.

    Perhaps that is why I sensed, just the tiny inkling of Sakki coming from him when I suggested that there may have been foul play.

    I still don't know what he meant by that.

    Let's end the speculation, I'm talkin' to all of y'all
    Males shouldn't be jealous, that's a female trait
    What, you mad ‘cause you push dimes and he sell weight?
    Y'all don't know my expenses, I gotta buy bigger plates
    Hehehe, and more baggies — why you all aggie?
    Homie, respect the game, that should be it
    What you eat don't make me shit; where's the love?

    See, I'm not really sure how I feel about this character mainly because I was RPing in Sound back before all of its hand offs. I got to see the other active Seijuu characters at the time, one of whom was Kaigen's daughter who had a younger brother who was killed and a nephew of Ichiru. Not all of their completed threads were actually listed on their sheets. The only reason they couldn't continue was because of the revamps taking place in 07. And Katsuyo is still listed in the RP directory while Sanami ended up in Junk. But anyways, what I'm getting at is that the bio sort of blows established stuff out of the water.

    I think another one of my issues is such a direct connection to both of the most powerful and influential people in Sound's convoluted history. The Seijuu were a legitimate clan before Sound's fall, so there are lots of options to tie into. But if Kiba and/or Merd is cool with all of that, so am I.

    I especially love the ending. Even though it was taken out of the info, we all know Raimei was behind it. Hell, it has in his character sheet... so yeah. Still though. Consider this a pending Half on GM approval.

    *Edit so not double posting: Yeah, I didn't even know if they were around still and was actually surprised to find Tostada's still in RP Info. Bio is great and awesomely done. I loved the character but was just hesitant about it since I didn't know what they were planning on doing with Miyamoto's and he had completed a thread with Rose's chick. But yeah, if Merd is fine with it... yay for first halves!

      I will admit to not knowing about the other Seijuu, I kinda figured them a dead and inactive clan and since Miyamoto hasn't used his in five years hopefully I can be forgiven of any toes my ignorance may have stepped on.

      I am aware that it's rare to write Kage's children but to me the connection with the ruling class in Sound is what makes the Seijuu appealing. So, yeah, I am kinda attached to the bio and all it implies.

      What's the point of being Prince if you can't drive the Red Corvette?

      I did get Merdle's permission to make him Kaigen's son and Raimei's nephew though.

          Kind of boring for Simba character. Doesn't he at least get a snappy song?

          Math looks good. Halfed.

                      You know I actually typed up this biography in Word? Not that I'm doubting spell checks omnipresent and infinite power, but I promise I put forth at least the minimal amount of effort!

                      These 2AP in particular are from the May payments from the Sanada GMing.

                      Also, I added in the AP usage in thread ratings.
