  • [Spartoi] - Kinsha of Dust

    Emissary of Dust

    Age: 12
    Height: 5'0"

    Character Type: Shinobi

    Country: Kaze no Kuni/Sunagakure no Sato
    Rank: Genin
    Division: KAZE Trainee

    Appearance: Personality:

    Kinsha is startlingly articulate for a child. Even in casual conversation, they will resort to formal speech, complicated words and elaborate sentences that sound, depending on who exactly you ask, either endearingly precocious or incredibly creepy . . . But mostly creepy. They are intelligent, know it and are deeply proud of it, and it lends them an air of confidence bordering on insufferable. Kinsha has developed a deep sarcastic streak and a love of snark, one that doesn't let up ever, but can vary between affectionate and biting. When they're upset, they smile, and when they're afraid, they laugh, when they want feel better about something, they turn it into a joke.

    While they are intelligent, Kinsha cannot get over the hurdle that they are simply very very bad at people. They wade into conversations, eager to take part, and watch, without comprehending why, as people glance away for an escape or break into awkward pauses, start looking for excuses to leave as they are put off by Kinsha's sick gallow's humor, odd manner of speaking and insistent sarcasm. Kinsha wants company but remains unsure of how to get it and keep it even now, which Sand's present attitude toward the Dustmen has not helped.

    Their voice is soft, gentle. "I know you are meant to record this all, but, Instructor, I would take it as a personal favor if you . . . That is to say, if you could please not keep that record?"

    Brief moment of tension, a quiet murmur.

    A cleared throat. Sniffling? "Thank you so much."
    TAPE I

    "Among the Dustmen, you must take care. There is any number of ways to die in any given room. You learn to be savvy, quick, listen when you're told of danger. They kept younger ones out of more dangerous places, but still there were accidents. I know some who have awful scars because they cracked a volatile solution on the ground, mixed the wrong ingredients or stood next to someone else who did. I have a few chemical burns myself. Nothing horrible; I learned quickly.

    "It is a bigger and grimmer family than most are accustomed too. We have few possessions, and we turn to the support of our fellow Dustmen. If I told you about the pranks that were pulled, well. We enjoyed ourselves."

    "I still miss it. There's a certain appeal to the liveliness of your streets; the noise, the vibrancy. But sometimes it's too much. Sometimes I pull the blinds and dream that I am still home, the others all tucked in around me."

    "I . . ."

    A prompt, masking mirth.

    "The academy was a struggle. I was not used to the atmosphere. The subjects were approached in a similar manner, but while the Dustmen emphasize deliberate, careful study, you have more competition? Rankings? Dustmen are more communal. Consider each accomplishment a collective success. You are more individualistic here. It was difficult. And . . .

    . . . A little lonely as well."
    fix it. The Ryodan murdered a whole clan and killed their own kage. They had to die.

    "I didn't like Nayoko but I didn't want her to die. I just wanted her to apologize for what she did and try to make up for it. I'm sure everyone else feels the same."

    A sober, low-toned inquiry.

    ". . . What? You're asking me this? Is it because I'm . . . Are you asking EVERYONE something like this? Actually, I hope you're not. If you are, that's So much worse.I'm not done. I know what that does. I know what it must have felt like that chemical is one of the worst. One day they were alive and perfectly healthy. Next they were dead."Sorry. I know that's not what you meant, but people talk, blame. And I'm so tired of it."
    course we're still mad. All that work? Wasted. And no apology. They don't see what they did wrong. Well . . . That's why I'm here, to help people understand. I want people to understand.

    ". . . Sometimes, it just feels hopeless.

    ". . . Don't look at me like that."
    TAPE X

    joke, instructor. Was it really that unfunny?"

    Firm assent.

    " . . . I see."

      Another androgynous Kaen character!

      Power: 1{-1}+2=2
      I'm fairly certain this should be a -2. None of your taken techniques use Power at all though, so I don't think anything changes there.

      The gauntlet is a spectacl.
      Everything else apart from the stat thing looks fine. That constant 'they' refrain makes me think less of a genderless character and more like it's a conglomerate/hivemind, and as usual I'm not sure which one you were going for so don't change anything if you're happy with that.

      I'm pretty sure you used the non-linear narrative for a biography once before but hey, whose really keeping track (^: I'll Half-Approve once the stat issue is resolved.
