Default Ishiburo Goban

Name: Ishiburo Goban
Nickname: Iryoku
Age: 24
Sex: Male
Height: 6' 4"

Character Type: Shinobi

Country/Village: Earth Country / Iwagakure
Rank: Jounin
Division: Sareki no Shinkan (SnS) / YAMA - 1st Degree Bear Cavalier

Physical Description: Goban is a large, bearish man, standing at well over six feet tall and upwards of 250 lbs. He seems to be in peak physical condition, with a build that suggests that he is no stranger to hard work and physical labor. Goban bears something of a farmer's tan, his skin showing numerous signs of long hours in the sun. His squarish jaw, decorated by a somewhat unkempt but short beard, running into his sideburns and his short brown hair. His eyes are dull, slate gray color, though they still manage to convey a look of quiet intensity and dignity, adding to an almost regal bearing. His hands are rough and calloused, and the rest of his form is similarly scarred from miscellaneous mishaps and injuries, both from shinobi and non-shinobi endeavors. Though they're rarely seen in their entirety, Goban bears the Ishiburo clan symbol as a tattoo on his right shoulder blade.

Clothing: His clothes vary widely, depending on what he's doing. During his forays outside Iwagakure on "personal" business, Goban keeps his clothing simple--a white cotton shirt, dark blue trousers, and a pair of sturdy boots are usually all he needs; over the shirt, he wears a simple brown leather vest. A rather unremarkable black bandana is worn on his head.

In the village and in settings where Goban's pursuits are far more martial in nature, tattered bandages that often look as if they've seen better days are wrapped around his hands up to mid-forearm and his legs up to the middle of his calves; the ends of his dark gray pants legs are similarly ragged and torn, held up by a black sash. Over both knees he wears a pair of armored knee pads and there's a leather strap around the bandages on his left hand and wrist. His chest is covered by a simple hide vest when he chooses to wear it, bandages wrapped around his lower torso. Atop his head is his hitai-ate, bearing the symbol of Hidden Stone on his forehead. A small brown pouch is tied around his right thigh, containing the few tools he carries with him.

Personality: Ishiburo Goban is the kind of person that always has a plan, and more often than not seems to be at least two steps ahead of everyone around him. It's no secret that he loves playing strategy games; the only person who can ever seem to best him with any consistency is his grandfather, Ishiburo Aoki. He often approaches situations and other people with a detached and almost arrogant seeming demeanor, keeping any comment he might have as short and to the point as possible and refusing to compromise either himself or his clan by doing anything not in keeping with his own ideals.

In a more casual setting, Goban is far more relaxed, though how much more social he really becomes is marginal. Around those with whom he's comfortable, he'll at least engage in conversation, but he always seems somewhat reserved and guarded. Despite his gruff exterior, he's always had a soft spot for children, often volunteering to teach both shinobi and non-shinobi alike, clansmen or not.

Goban's childhood was surprisingly typical, even for one born into the shinobi world. The youngest of seven siblings--four boys and two girls--Goban quickly learned the merits of speaking up and speaking often. He was practically raised by his brothers; his father was killed on a mission when he was only four, and his mother became somewhat of an emotional wreck for years afterward.

His entire theory on manhood was shaped by his two eldest brothers. Both were exceptional shinobi in their own right, and started training young Goban in the arts shortly after he'd turned six. Goban quickly became adept at wood and stonecarving, developing a knack for translating an image in his mind to physical form early. At age 9, Goban made the unusual decision to serve his clan apprenticeship with a blacksmith instead of a sculptor.

Goban's attention to detail was nothing but an asset as he learned the ins and outs of creating all sorts of shinobi weaponry. Though his age prevented him from doing much but observing and physical labor, he was more than willing to do the work asked of him and then some, contributing to his exceptional strength by the time he entered the academy when he was 11.

Juggling an apprenticeship and Academy work is rough going for any shinobi, and if it ever took a high toll on Ishiburo Goban, it never showed. He didn't show any immediate sign of taking to ninjutsu or genjutsu; for his first two years in the Academy, Goban was fascinated enough by the Ishi no Karada style to virtually ignore everything else, up until the first time he was required to create his first golem. He'd never forgotten his sculpting technique, and his first attempt at using the jutsu went surprising well. His first golem was small--less than three feet in height. Still, it displayed a considerable amount of composure and willpower that impressed even his brothers.

At 13, he became a genin, assigned to his first team. It was a relatively uneventful assignment; Goban became somewhat of a loner, and Jinzo, Goban's golem, often did much of his creator's speaking for him. During the first two years of geninhood, while Goban participated in a team capacity as best he could, he seemed far more comfortable leading--and even moreso doing things on his own. He was by no means a genius, but when he wasn't honing his survival training skills with his team sensei, he was in Gakuryoku Library, reading as much as he could about military strategy.

Missions were few and far between by the time he was 16. Though he had only recently been promoted to chuunin, his focus had shifted yet again--this time to more non-shinobi endeavors, taking on the brunt of the work of his late father's stonemasonry business. He spent a fair amount of his time outside Iwagakure, travelling from mine to mine making deliveries. The transport he had been leading had only ever been attacked once, encountering bandits on the road about two miles outside of Daichi. Alone, Goban might have been at a serious disadvantage; however, he knew enough to use the stone he'd been transporting to summon and create a version of Jinzo vastly improved from his genin days. The fight ended quickly when Jinzo exploded in a shower of stone shuriken and kunai, decimating the group of bandits.

Upon returning to Iwagakure, Goban realized how quickly news travelled; many of his own clansmen had heard about the attack--and the subsequent defense--of the shipment, which was to be used in a new statue to be sculpted for the capital. Though Jinzo seemed amused by the praise, Goban virtually ignored it, continuing about his business as if nothing had happened. For years, even into jouninhood, he continued to split his focus between his shinobi duties in Iwagakure, teaching at the Academy, and his civilian life as a miner and stonemason working for the Ishiburo clan.

Goban had just turned 21 when he was approached by the Sareki no Shinkan; while he wasn't sure what he was in for, he wasn't entirely certain he should ask. Promoted to jounin in that same year, all he could really do was continue to work with his academy and genin students and continue to run his now retired father's business outside of Iwagakure, keeping the two as separate as humanly possible.

Jinzo, Goban's Stone Golem

Description: Jinzo is a seven-foot tall stone soldier; many people who see him at first call him a 'stone gorilla'. The moniker isn't an entirely inacurate one; Jinzo, while generally heavy set due to his nature, has slightly longer arms than one might expect anything humanoid to have, and no real neck to speak of. Tending to favor large, heavy weapons, Jinzo's eyes glow with an eerie green light, pulsing every time he speaks.

Personality: Jinzo carries himself much like one would expect a soldier to carry himself, with an unshakable determination and unwavering sense of dignity and justice. He is always more than willing to sacrifice himself for Goban's more risky, gambit-like strategies, and his dry and poignant sense of humor often counters Goban's less than social nature.
