Hues of purple irises lit up under the illumination of a ceiling light that spotlighted Hyousetsu Echizen as he stood in a room veiled in darkness, safe for a table and chair a few feet in front of him where an entourage of Chuunin to Jounin academy instructors sat with pens and papers out. The focal point of the interview had shifted, and he realized that someone else’s shinobi career may be hanging in the balance.

Aniki, huh? The instructors smiled amongst themselves at the use of this term.

Um...y-yeah…I…I consider Gen as my best friend and older brother, so I honor his existence in my life by calling him Aniki.

Now that is truly fascinating. The cheerfulness of the voice juxtaposed the dynamic change in attitude of the room. Ya’know, the character of a shinobi is often measured by the strength of bonds he or she makes – especially in an academy setting. So, little Hyousetsu, it reflects well on you. But to move on, tell us: how would you describe your Aniki, eh? And please, be as honest as you can.

Um...tall? Well…then again, everyone’s tall when it comes to…hah, me, sir. But, um, tall compared to me, but short for his age? Um...I think he’s about five feet flat – or something, feel free to quote me. Not to sound mean, and don’t tell Aniki I said this about him but…anatomically speaking, there…there isn’t really anything special about him. I mean, he still has the natural physique needed of someone in his clan’s linage, or ninja repertoire but…um…yeah, physically he’s ordinary, ya’know?

Hm.

But this shouldn’t be confused if you add the element of physicality into the mix, um...sir.

Are you saying the difference between anatomy and physicality is a thin of a line as genius is to insanity?

Well…kind of? I mean, it’s hard to explain. With Aniki, anything and everything, each movement or word, is so dramatic, or even dynamic…And these actions are embraced by an unfaltering conviction. I mean…in a sea of stars, you could spot Aniki because he’d be a comet, since there is a certain strength of his spirit that permeates beyond his…well…um – unimpressive form.”

“But there’s a lot more about him that draws in everyone’s eyes, other than that…um…confident and dynamic bravado. He has this wild-child appearance-thing going for him…a-alongside the stripes of red warpaint he sometimes smears up his cheeks from under his jawline… I believe they're a tribute to a…well, physical scar that Gunko-sama had…


Houtei Gunko?

Um..y..yes, sir.

..Hm…let’s get back to Gen: a wild-child appearance you say?

Y-yeah…The townsfolk say that Aniki’s most striking feature is the wild, untamed hair layered on his head, which brings a contradiction to his…well, his well-rounded and youthful cherub face. I know he usually keeps his hair in a ponytail that falls to the back of his neck, but everything is so unkempt and wild…hah, I remember once trying to go at him with a comb and he smacked it out of my hand so hard that its teeth stuck onto the ceiling.”

“B-but..um…Aniki’s dress code sort-of-kind-of-somewhat-came from pointers from…um.


Who?

M-me…

“That loosely tied moon white scarf around his neck – the one he often wears like a bandana to cover the lower half of his face – well…that’s something I made a series of…where I stitched them onto a variety of short-sleeved shirts made to fit Aniki’s person. On top of the short-sleeved shirt is…another series of clothing I made…a midnight blue tunic that divides at either side of the hips to give the wearer free mobility. I believe Aniki usually wears a sash about his waist, but the tunic is formed more like a gi than anything…

“Um…the pants? They’re normal. But around his arms are a pair of…bracers, custom made, might I add. By me? N-no, not at all, I’ve been busy blueprinting my own equipment… Those bracers of his are an ever-changing work of art. In fact, I think he recently added a compass to one of them, so…

“F-forgive me for going on that tangent…but, the color of his hair is brown, which I believe came from his father’s side. It’s odd…because most of the Getsuei Clan have silver-hair, which I guess fits for Aniki’s rebellious behavior. He’s like me though, we both have that domination of our mother’s genes with looks, because he has her deep charcoal eyes, as well as pale skin—


Echizen-kun?

Uh…y-yeah?

Elaborate more on this ‘wild-child’ aspect to Gen and how it fits with his personality. Could it serve to be a future problem—

No, no! Not at all!

???

Um…Sorry for the outburst sir…but Aniki is braver than brash: he’s not the type to charge in without contemplating the consequences. He’s aware of a lot, possibly to the point of being self-conscious? However, he stands firm in the face of fear, and is motivated to help the greater good more than anything…Aniki’s a curious guy, and I think that quality – the aspect of wanderlust – helps fuel his overcoming of self-doubt or even hesitation amidst the unknown…I mean Aniki’s resilient, self-reliant, independent, daring, but real-real stubborn. His courageous and dominant personality is really contagious though…

Contagious eh? How so?

Well…he has a dominant personality that may turn some people off but…um…that radiance he has is a lot of charisma, because he’s often known – in both speech and movements – to be able to influence those around him. Although some may see this as him being naïve or too immature for his own good, Aniki has this aura around him that can invoke the purest of emotions…even admiration…it’s…it’s actually a quality I wish I had.

Now, that is truly fascinating. Are there any last notes that you’d like to add or say about Gen? Speak now, or forever hold your peace.

Um...haha…well…

What is it?

Aniki…well…he likes to imagine himself as a protagonist in an epic adventure.

Really now?

Yeah…he has that boldness like a traditional Shounen, but is more respected by the masses, ya’know? Aniki isn’t one dimensional…genius-like epiphanies aren’t his thing but he’s relentless in his attempts to push beyond the norm and his limitations…you…you could say he tinkers with trial and error, and is by no means an ancient monk passing out wisdom by the fortune cookie…he’s motivated and a hard worker...

“I mean... I…I think it reinforces his subconscious desire to always be a hero and find the right solution for a situation…akin to a detective in search for the truth, I’ve gotten into a lot of trouble around the city because of him…but, yeah…I don’t know what else to say. Aniki is Aniki, and I can only hope that one day I build the…well…confidence and understanding on life that he has…

“…Or at least spark my candle with half the brightness of his…

Are you proud to be a member of the Getsuei Clan?

Totally. We've got one of the longest histories out there, and even when we were just a small clan, we were still a force to be reckoned with.

Ah, the words of man of action. Would you therefore class yourself as a firm believer in the Getsuei code of conduct?

You mean appeasing the gods by day and rocking the earth by night?

Actually, more the pursuit of peace and tranquility.

Well I'm not a violent guy, dude, if that's what you mean. But yeah, I suppose so. That's the end game, at least. I think I see where you're going... Rukusudo-sama and Shigu-sama, right? Yeah, I'd throw my lot in with the chief. Journey before destination...I think that's how it goes... If you ignore those old-timers who refuse to see the light of the moon, the rest of em are starting to see things our way. Rukusudo-sama’s got it all figured out so I trust him to get it right while I’m off saving the world.

Saving the world? That’s a bit ambitious for an Academy Student, isn’t it? What do your parents think of your big dreams?

Mom's cool. She’s my number one fan, yo. She's been rooting for me for as long as I can remember.

And your father, Chiyoda Shinonome?

Non-issue, man. Next?

Why do you say that?

Because…it just is. It’s not like he was ever clan, or around, or cared. He doesn’t matter; this is my story.

Your story...interesting. Very well, young one, we shall continue. Although this uncharacteristic disrespect for the 'unenlightened old-timers' in your clan should be reviewed. Do you perhaps have a problem with authority?

Don’t get me wrong. I've got mega respect for our gods but I just don't think the preachy elders are the bees' knees. We were peacekeepers once - now we're just bee keepers! Not all of them are like that, but some of them are way too short-sighted to read the sign posts of the times. It's like: Dead end ahead! Turn here! Leave while you can! There's no future for a stick-in-the-mud clan like that, no matter how much you pray for the tide to pull you out of a slump. You've gotta take control, man.

So what would you have them do?

I think that if we can ditch the snail pace crawl and stop simply existing, then maybe we can live, ya know? Pick up some steam and go for it!

And how would you achieve that?

...I dunno... That's why Rukusudo-sama's the brains of the operation! Hehe...

You are certainly a very passionate and driven individual. Your focus in this sense might be a tad hazy, but you seem to have the determination to get things done. However, I am going to have to return to the matter of your father. The transition from student to Genin requires more than just good grades. In becoming a shinobi of the Water Country, you become a representative of our people. We need clear heads and cool temperaments to quench the fires of chaos, and at the moment I'm seeing a good deal of unfinished business. And we were not blind to the bullying, even when it extended beyond the classroom and into the clan itself. They considered you...

Mongrel? Outcast? Yeah, I know. I didn’t care.

You didn’t care? Not one bit?

I'm already the armadillo to my buddy Echizen's hedgehog, right? I shrug that stuff off before breakfast. The hero of the story makes his own future from the past he’s been dealt, and you can’t change the past. You can’t change the fact my dad came from Hidden Cloud in peace but left in a rush. And you can't change the fact that he pretty much yanked my mom out of Clan Awesome, then vanished and left us to make a new home for ourselves in the shambles of our old one.

But Chiyoda Shinonome was a foreign delegate from Hidden Cloud, an envoy to promote goodwill following his participation in the heinous Ghost Run. His tenure here would never have been permanent, despite all the progress he made. You must have known something of this?

When I was five, six? I barely knew the guy. He was always busy 'making progress' like you said... Well I didn't see any where it mattered the most!

What do you remember?



Not much: bushy eyebrows; a lot of hair; big man; liked the colour red.

What else? Any specific memories?

I dunno. Mom and I… There was this festival or something, and he was fighting in a…match. An exhibition match…?

Ah yes, we have that on file here. Chiyoda Shinonome was something of a prodigal swordsman and so it was inevitable that he would be challenged. The instance you're referring to, I believe, was a spectator event arranged for our annual festival - a cross-cultural Kenjutsu display pitting the ambassador against a Special Agent of the MLEA. Your father won.

~Fascinating~

Indeed. A master of Tentou no Sashizu is not to be trifled with, it seems. At least we know this now!



Gen-chan, you are so sure of your father’s faults, yet you have already showed great promise in early academy weapons training, including the sword. You can't deny that you take after him in many ways; ignorance and hatred like this is unhealthy, and if it contin-

Woah, woah, woah!!! Hold your horses, boss. I've got a grudge against the guy but I don't hate him! I just kind of blocked him out of my life instead. I doubt he wanted to be in it anyway, otherwise he would have made more of an effort to keep in touch. I mean, I can accept what they told me - that he left to protect his Raikage from some dangerous missing-nin that the government had hired - and maybe I can begin to understand it, but it doesn't change the fact that he's never once returned. We were just a job to him. It's not cool, but whatever, I moved on eventually. I had to.

Why?

You are referring to…

Yosh. I mean...the change started with me. I figured that no true hero would let himself become the villain so easily (unless it was a test to win out over evil) so I forced myself to act differently because I wanted to stay on the right path no matter what. Then I got why 'growing up' was so important in the first place - for getting stronger. When you get control of your life, you can be strong like a boss, yo! Then KAPOW! You're taking down the bad guys left, right and centre because they've lost the power. You've got it. Fight the power!!

Hm, quite. Now could you please pick up your chair and sit down?

No worries, chief.

Um, so, yeah. Then I entered the Academy and I had to move on for a whole other reason. I knew straight off the bat that there was gonna be trouble. No one comes along with a story like mine only to fit in with the sheep. That's classic Chapter One action right there, dude! Ya know, there were a lot of kids who decided to rile me up any chance they got; a lot of practical jokers. And it wasn't like I could turn to my dad for advice. I had to go out and find the answers on my own and man, it was tough. And ya know what? I really do think I outgrew the bullies somewhere during those first few years. One day, maybe a Tuesday, I realised that as cruel as they were, it was most likely ignorance, jealousy or fear at the helm, making me mysterious, cooler than them or just plain scary. Hehe...

The confidence that came from that was unreal and it's never left me since. Of course, only I knew this, so they still acted on their threats, and confidence isn't the same thing as fearlessness. I mean, I wasn't suddenly kunai-proof or anything - I just had to be brave, no matter how bad things looked.


What did you learn from the experience?

That you've gotta have faith in yourself, even if the world seems ready to swallow you up. Especially then, because if you can't do it then who or what can you ever really believe in?

Most astute. And how did your friends react to this change in nature?

I'm not gonna lie. All throughout this I was pretty much a wolf-pack of one. True story. After it, though... Yata!! People noticed. It wasn't like I craved the attention but I did enjoy it. Still, I wasn't changing for them.

No?

No. As hard as that might be to believe, it was never about pleasing others or getting them to accept me. I was doing it for the me I wanted to be, and the people I now call 'friends' could see that.

Still, there is one guy left alive whose opinion I care about.


Hyousetsu Echizen?

Yep. My lil' bro. He was the next reason I changed.

At the beginning I barely knew Echizen but I soon saw how the other kids treated him and it was like going back in time to watch that other me - except this one was mysterious, cool AND had the potential to be scary. One day I realised: Yo, can't stand by and just watch any more. So I beat the crap out of a couple'a hosers who tried too hard to get a reaction out of him. Ya know, as the hero, it's my job to protect those who can't do it themselves. But I knew it was stupid to try and fight all his battles for him. It wasn't like he couldn't stand up for himself...he just wouldn't. I had to break him of that. Make him think. Make him believe.


From your earlier description of the young Hyousetsu, it appears that there is still much to teach. Nevertheless, the rate of his development has been quite noteworthy.

Word? I can't take all the credit myself, ya know, but that means a lot coming from you guys!

Modest and gracious. Well, this isn't the wild child we were expecting.

Sorry to disappoint, but I guess they didn't tell ya I was unpredictable too.

Clearly. That is, unless we are simply asking the wrong questions. I digress. Your friendship with Hyousetsu Echizen is of import, but we have spoken of him much already and I would far rather hear about the other whose opinion you cared about (the one no longer living). If I am correct, this would be the younger brother of...

Shatter - Part III



...Gunko-senpai...

I beg your pardon?

Houtei Gunko.

Yes, Gunko. At the very least, he was a fine physical specimen and a testament to the benefits of our training regimes. Sadly, there was little chance for him to be another Yasaki. Nevertheless, following your early encounters with him we noticed the improving trend in your teacher's feedback. I dare say the three of you made a good match at the time, and it was fortunate that you learned early on how to cope with loss and exist in the absence of a guiding figure. Death can arrive swiftly and unexpectedly in our line of work and, as an Academy student, your lives have been sheltered to an extent. Dealing with situations like these at such an age is certainly not a requisite for our assessment, but it reveals much.

Don't belittle his life to the purpose of a training exercise. Just don't. Please. Don't pretend you knew him either, what he stood for, or what he was capable of. He was family. He was our inspiration, our compass, our anchor.

Nothing could have prepared me for losing Senpai. And it was so out of the blue - just a normal mission gone bad. Like it was for him.

It's not right.

He was more of a father than Shinonome could ever hope to be and more of a brother than his had been to him! He didn't chase glory; what he did was chase a shadow that grew with each passing of the moon. Everyone only sees Yasaki the prodigy, and never Gunko, who worked himself into the ground just to come close to doing his brother proud. And to become a legend for the sake of the people who had lost a shinobi they could rely upon! For people like you!


There it is! There's that spark! As you wish Master Getsuei. I shall refrain from goading you in the future, although it really is quite fascinating to watch how well-spoken you become when you get serious. Please, have a seat, continue. Relax. Perhaps you can tell me more about the time the three of you spent together so that I might better understand the real Gunko?

Alright. Well...that's more like it. Thanks.

We met, as all good teams do, by chance, or fate. Echizen and I were on clean-up detail as punishment for one of our more spectacular parkour trips through the Village. I guess we kinda had it coming after the stunt we pulled. Punnage intended. Hah! All we knew of Gunko-senpai at the time was what we saw and our teacher's words of warning that morning - that he was a Seagull War veteran but, by the looks of things, a bit of a wet blanket. We know now that he had this super modesty and a habit of wearing clothes that smothered his sheer awesomeness. He was really quiet too and seemed to have a lot on his mind besides acting as supervisor.

Yeah....we got bored in no time at all. Like there was even a chance we'd spend the day scrubbing the deck like we were supposed to! Besides, I've got this thing about being penned in and caged up...

Anyway, the two of us decided to test the limits of our punishment with a little tricking competition. As ya do. I started with an inside somersault tuck off a gunwale, then Echizen did the same thing but with a backflip - I remember because it's, well, that day's important, ya know? But dude, dude, dude, dude (!!), it was Gunko-senpai who took the cake by ditching his mop and thrashing the pair of us with a handstand off the top rail, somersaulting twice down to the main deck to land on his hands! This straight-laced grump took the wind right out of our sails and then had the cheek to just stand up, poker-faced, and tell us to get back to work! What a.....d'ah...what a dude. Respect.


So he was more of a free spirit than we might have given him credit for.

Word. And one heck of a fighter. The guy was built like a battleship and the way he used those muscles... I mean, maaaan, the second time we saw him was only briefly during a tour of the Naval Base but he was out doing sword forms on the quad. He was in the zone. Nah, he was beyond the zone. I dunno if Echnizen's ever managed to find that kind of focus, but I haven't! Not yet, at least. There was just so much driving him to be better that everything else pretty much fell away. Like totally fell away.

You seek to follow his lead, then?

The thing is, he- He passed on without ever having made his dream reality. Maybe in his final moments he came close? Maybe he even made it happen? We'll never know for sure. The last time we hung out was before he left for the mission. We were chillaxin' after a run, the three of us, and he was telling Echizen some stories about the Legendary Swordsmen. Senpai's birthday was only a month away. He would have been twenty, same age as Yasaki, so it was his deadline but, well, he still thought he was pretty far off. I mean, what if he got there and somehow beat the deadline but no one was around to realise what had happened? Where's the justice in that?! But Senpai was our hero. The world just needed to see it the same way.

And that's where we come in.


We?

Damn right. After Senpai's death, Echizen and I decided to live through his way of the ninja, one way or another, and finish what he started.

Legends are stories;
They are stories that ended.
I am no legend.

That haiku was his nindo. It was what he believed...but he was wrong. He wasn't his brother; he didn't have to be put up on a pedestal, to die in action to become worthy of a legend. To us, man, he was already there.

So while little Zenny and I are still alive to write it, his story hasn't ended. It's our story now, and it's only just beginning!

Well, I must say that your resolve is astonishing, as is your optimism, but I would advise you to narrow your gaze in the immediate future. Your Academy match impressive but still very close. Perhaps even too close for you to presume too much at this point. I remember Gunko being something of a slacker when he was your age, and if you wish to achieve that kind of brilliance then you might just have to work even harder than your predecessor. Can you do that?

Equally, the way you spoke of the Hyousetsu boy earlier displayed such high regard that I wonder whether you still consider yourself 'aniki'. You wouldn't want to be left behind by the third prodigy to grace your family tree, would you?


Yeah, I didn't make the Number One Rookie slot and I'm a bit annoyed about that but I couldn't be happier for Echizen. And if the little dude does decide to overtake me at some point, I'll still be whatever he needs me to be - 'Aniki' now or just plain bro in the future. But who knows, yo? I've got my own plans too, and while the hero of the story might not be the most powerful, he will be the greatest.

Hm...and that's another thing. This entire interview, you have been referring to yourself as the 'hero'. While it is indeed healthy to have a clear focus, there is a danger in the dream becoming a delusion...

...Fair enough. I understand the confusion. I don't look like one, do I? Ahhh, but it's always the unassuming guy from humble beginnings who makes it. I had to be a hero for my mum when Kagero left, straight from the pages of my manga, and it was then that I realised it was who I was meant to be all along. Captain Armadillo to the rescue! Huurahhh!!!

...but I'm still only half of the whole. Team GenZen for the win! You guys are gonna need ninjas like us, yo.


And why is that?

We're gonna make history.

Chronicles of a Nosy Neighbour - Volume 17

It's been just over a month now since Kiyomi's boy passed his Academy exams and I dare say I haven't had a good night's sleep since! Always with the hustle and bustle at odd hours and in such states! Now just what kinds of trouble do he and that Hyousetsu friend of his go looking for?! I'll admit that the time between being promoted to the rank of genin and actually forming a team can be one of great uncertainly but this is ridiculous! Oh, he's a boon to the clan when he needs to be...I'll give him that; so much energy that -his- chores seem to take -half- the time, but I don't approve of these late night returns and early starts.

That one's too loud for his own good - he'll make a terrible ninja! Absolutely terrible... Why, there he goes! It's a good thing I woke early this morning, otherwise I'd have to -hear- this racket through the wall behind my bed. At least from here I can get a good look at this tomfoolery. What's this now? Bah! Close the door, boy. I doubt poor Kiyomi wishes the damp to invade her house! Go, begone!

Oof! The sun hasn't yet risen...
I shouldn't be up either...
Where could he be going at this hour?


Other Information
  • Gen’s mind is never truly blank, nor is his body ever still except in sleep. There is always some pressing issue at hand or some grand gesture yet to make and he likes to keep it that way. He runs on his own momentum, gathering energy like a false moon rolling down a hill would gather moss…and pretty much anything else.

  • He is a parkour fanatic and speed freak with a penchant for going that extra, unnecessary mile, simply to make things more challenging for himself. Some say he has a death wish. Gen likes to think of it as a 'Life Wish' — to experience the heights and highs of tiptoeing along the edge of the physical realm.

  • Other odd habits include: going out of his way to pick up a stray coin or step on a crunchy-looking leaf; making sure he eats a full breakfast every morning; wishing upon the first star at night; collecting spare parts and/or interesting gizmos and gadgets wherever he might find them; singing to himself whilst carrying out his chores (with ever improving skill).

  • When he isn’t out scrambling over rooftops with his buddy Echizen or engaged in rigorous physical training, Gen's next favourite pastime is scavenging materials for his 'ultimate weapon', a gauntlet that he one day wants to invent. Unfortunately, all the doodling and tinkering in the world won't replace the necessary expertise in engineering that he lacks.

  • Gen's Introduction/Physical/Clothing/Personality descriptions were supplied by his best friend, Hyousetsu Echizen.

  • Influences include:
    + Wild Tiger (Tiger & Bunny)
    + Balthier (Final Fantasy XII)
    + Snow (Final Fantasy XIII)

This is ready to be moved to the Clan Registry.

Could someone please change the thread title to: [Mist Genin] Getsuei Gen

Thanks, yo!

Half-approved for being the other overly self-aware clan genin

Been keeping an eye on this guy for a while. Definitely an interesting read; can't wait to see what you do with him. Clan GM Approved!

Approving this as well. Spearhead, if your GM approval also counts as Mist's, move this.

Should probably link the khukuri knives, they're not from the basic list.
