Default Fukuyama Masato - Stone M-nin

Fukuyama Masato + Tensai-Heika

Age: 29
Sex: Male
Height: 5'9

Country/Village: Iwagakure
Rank: Jounin Missing Nin
Division: -----

The Man: Masato looks fairly normal. He's about average height, perhaps a little bit under, and is more wiry than ripped. Of course, his muscles are still defined and evident from rigorous training, but he has no need for burly bulk when his strength comes from exact chakra control. Masato's hair is dark brown and wavy, tangled and messy like he just got out of bed. His eyes are bright, crystalline blue and constantly too intense, as though Masato is always trying to bore holes through people with his sight alone. He's fair skinned, but not pale, and is covered in little lines where black blood runs through his veins, making them dark under his skin. These veins are most obvious over his chest and close to his heart, where the top of his Force Jewel juts out of his flesh, and he typically covers the veins on his hands and face with a layer of concealer. Masato seems perpetually down and carries himself with a solemn weariness.

Masato's day to day clothing is fairly simple. He dresses almost business-like, distancing himself from the trappings of his former shinobi lifestyle. Dark slacks match a suit jacket over whatever crumpled button-up shirt he has to decided to wear that day. Masato looks like a haggard salary-man, sometimes even wearing a tie loose at his neck. He wears a long coat with deep pockets to keep his supplies in, ready and waiting.

The Monster: Compared to most, Masato's jewel avatar is more tangible, at least to him. Much of the time, Masato is able to see the avatar, Tensai, around him. The avatar is handsome in a cruel way, all cold angles and lines, looking jagged and sharp next to Masato's tired, soft edges. Tensai seems to have had the color drained out of him, leaving him dull and pale with ashy blond hair and a constant frame of stubble around his jaw. Against the vibrant backdrop of the real world, Tensai is desaturated and washed out. He is both taller and broader than Masato himself and has a heavy voice like liquid lead. Tensai dresses however he wants, because he is a creature of pure thought.

Personality: On the surface, Masato seems perfectly reasonable. Yes, he is a little odd, and yes, he is a little awkward, but he means well. He is a bit naïve and a bit childish, but mostly he is mild-mannered and methodical. Masato likes to feel useful. He tries to be pragmatic and solve problems before they get too sticky. Some sad part of him has always wanted desperately to be useful, talented, and powerful, and that part forms the core of who he is. The idea of failure haunts him nearly as much as the voice of the jewel. For all his faults and his problems, Masato earnestly, honestly wants to do good. He wants to be better.

Tensai is the Devil. As the consciousness of a high purity black jewel, he's manipulative, he's cruel, he's ruthless, restless, and remorseless. Perpetually discontent with existence as a shadow, Tensai exerts more and more control over Masato. Often, he moves through subtle whispers and hints; sometimes, its altered perception and obvious goading. Tensai is arrogant, wrathful, and subject to strange, alien lusts and desires. And despite a disdain for Masato, and a certain thirst to see the man suffer and struggle, the jewel is intensely possessive of him and has enough higher order thought to not put Masato in too much danger, lest he risk his precious vessel.

What was once an all-out war between Masato and Tensai has buckled under years of pressure. Increasingly, the two personalities have become tangled together into an antagonistic mass. Masato's emotions burn wild and raw from the corruption, and his perception of the real world has become clouded. For all that Tensai leads him into trouble, the avatar is the first and only person on the planet to actually need Masato, and this very simple fact has warped their dynamic into a cycle of destruction.

Biography: We made a mistake.

Back then, we were taking risks. We wanted the war to be over – the Mukeisatsu were the weapon that ended up doing that, and we paid for it later with more blood than we bargained for. But there were other projects. We had divisions examining old Sound and Cloud tech. There were whispers about a bijuu team that never saw the light of day. And then there was my group, the Force Jewel researchers.

By then, we knew about the side effects, about the risk of personality bleed between avatars and gems, and how high purity gems increased the risk of rejection. All of that was documented, but it was imprecise. We wanted hard numbers. We wanted to find ways to cut the jewels and set them well enough that pure gems didn't burn out their hosts. There were animal trials first – we're not monsters, and we didn't have shinobi to spare anyway – and when those seemed successful, we tried it with a small number of forgettables, for lack of a nicer term.

Fukuyama Masato was one of them. One of a dozen children of a civilian merchant, a C-average student in the academy, a sixteen year old chuunin with no talent, a sidelined personality, and minimal prospects. He wanted so badly to be better than he was, and we knew that if he died on the table, that we had not wasted Stone's best and brightest. Of the six High Purity Prototypes, he had the cleanest psychological profile, so we set a black Force Jewel here, right over his heart.

We made a mistake.

Most of the other prototypes died within a few weeks from various complications. The Red Prototype immolated herself when the delusions overwhelmed her. The Green Prototype jumped off a cliff during a psychotic break. The Blue Prototype became despondent and refused to eat until he withered away. The Yellow Prototype died in battle, one of the last major missions of Naro's War. The only two survivors were the White Prototype – who may as well be dead, as she's been catatonic for over a decade now – and the Black Prototype.

Masato recovered like it was any other jewel. He showed no signs of enhanced powers or a deeper connection to the gem. He complained about hearing the avatar, and that the avatar told him to do bad things, but if nothing else, the kid had a strong sense of morality. We kept close tabs on him, but given the abject failure of the other five Prototypes, the project was closed down. Eventually, the Mukeisatsu assassinated Naro, the war was finished, and we moved on to other things. To six years of blessed peace.

He only started to show results afterward. About a year after the procedure, he started to excel on missions. He rapidly grew stronger. Masato started to take initiative when he had only ever been known as a wallflower before. We continued his psych evaluations and regular therapy and he talked about the jewel avatar, which he called Tensai, and he made more complaints. Black jewels put their hosts under tremendous stress, we said, and we wanted to be sure he had the tools to deal with it. The signs were there. We knew he was dangerous, but we wanted to think that he was on the level of any of the dozen other black jewels in the village.

Masato assaulted a superior. He misheard something and snapped and broke the guy's nose. The beginning of the end. We kept him under observation and he started showing signs of delusion. Paranoia. Hallucinations. Whatever reality Masato lived in, it wasn't this one. Word came from on high that we needed to get him medicated before he became more of a liability. We tried, but could never get the doses right. His system grew to tolerate any drug we fed him within days.

Then, Masato made his escape. He was unstable. Irritable. On his best days, he was surly and erratic, and risky to deploy on missions. On his worst, a danger to himself and anyone around him. We were ordered to sedate him. The Prototype project had been shut down and we needed to put the last piece back in its box. I think he knew. Not Masato, but his jewel, that Tensai. Three jounin arrived at his doorstep and Masato killed them, then fled across the border. Hunters have gone after him a few times with little luck.

I wanted that to be the end of it. One more mentally cracked missing-nin in the world. A bitter end to a foolish endeavor. For all the suffering we put on him, part of me wanted him to be free while the jewel finished killing him. It's in his blood now. Poor boy is a walking plague, his body an incubator for toxins and diseases, all kept suspended by his jewel and unleashed at the jewel's whim instead of his own. If we had just left him alone...

We made a mistake.

Other Info: Like all jewel avatars, Tensai is a hallucination, not a bunshin.
