Default Senritsu Wakana — Cloud Chuunin



Name:
Senritsu Wakana
Age: Eighteen
Sex: Female
Height: 5'5"

Character Type: Shinobi

Country/Village: Rai no Kuni/Kumogakure
Rank: Corporal
Division: Engineering/Field Engineer

Appearance: Wakana’s face is pretty in a way, marked by a small, slightly upturned nose and with thin, severe eyebrows over big brown eyes, lending her expressions a ferocity and sharpness they wouldn’t otherwise have. Her hair, brown like her eyes, falls free around Wakana's heart-shaped face, dancing about her shoulders and tickling the base of her neck. Wakana's build is clearly female but not remarkable, with a slight inward curve at her waist, narrow shoulders and a modest bust. Her body is sleek, with an acrobat's litheness. While she is small, Wakana doesn't seem to find that at all relevant to her presence, and doesn't see why anyone else should either. She walks quickly and stares at the world with impatient eyes while she taps her feet, wondering why it won't hurry up at get to the point.

When in the field, she wears a gray vest over a snug-fitting, short-sleeved black top. The mark of the Daishou, two black lightning bolts, is sewn below her left breast. Her shinobi gear is tucked into and around her vest. She wears a grey skirt that reaches just above her knees over black leggings, with a pair of combat boots on her feet. She wears a belt around her waist thick with gadgets and shinobi tools to call on when things get tough. On formal occasions she will revert to the regular Cloud uniform, and she possesses a small wardrobe of more casual clothing for when she is not on active duty.

Personality: Wakana can be a bit uncomfortable to be around. She is for the most part a minimalist in all things, including words, including expression. Her blunt dismissals and curt answers lend her a confrontational aura which may have been part of the reason it took so long for her to be promoted. Wakana can be either outspoken and no-nonsense or frigid and disrespectful depending on who is being asked.

The simple fact is that Wakana does not do well with people, not because of any inherit problem with them, but because she does not quite understand them. The subtle nuances of body language and intonation elude her, and Wakana knows. Rather than agonize over it, Wakana chooses to move forward with what she’s good at and try not to let the rest bother her. What she has learned is that her awkwardness will become everyone else's instead if it simply looks like she doesn't care and that a blunt question will usually get an answer.

Inventory

Breathing Apparatus - 1

Songbird (1 Hidden + 2 Medium Blade + 1 Morph [Small Blade]) - 4
By reaching down and grabbing at a piece of clothing Wakana can peel Songbird from the surface or slide it back in with no other sign of its presence. In its original shape it is a long, wicked black dagger with geometric white engravings. With another a surge of chakra Wakana can make it lengthen to a short saber, emitting a high, musical whine in the process.

Owl's Eye Goggles (1 Zoom + 2 Night Vision) - 3
The Owl's Eye Goggles are dark, with shimmering lines of white about their edges. When chakra is channeled through the Owl's Eye they glow amber with a black center. When the user peers through the goggles they can see the night as though it were day with an orange tint. It can zoom up to twenty times normal vision without losing detail. As it zooms further out, the dark dot grows smaller, and larger as its focus is closer.

Weapon Points Remaining: 0
Additional Weapon Points Gained: 0

Biography

Wakana’s parents' greatest sin and virtue was their forethought. The Sakoshi scientists met and coupled once it became clear to them that they were more or less the same person. They set their lives to a clock, day to day, week to week, month to month, life to death. Their schedules and their existence was cleaned to lean, Spartan efficiency to best accomplish their plan, and their plan involved long careers, one child to inherit their profession and a peaceful retirement.

But biology has little respect for plans, and when Wakana was born she was one half a pair of identical twins. Her twin’s name was Aika, and to their parent’s credit, for a while they tried to make it work. Both twins took after their parents, with rationale minds and a head for questions that pleased them. But they quickly realized there was no way to reconcile two children with their vision of the future. When they were seven, the twins’ parents laid out the rules—cold and rational. They would train one child but hadn’t the time to teach them both while attending to their experiments. There was a short competition to see who could engineer the best work, and Aika won. Wakana still has the primitive radio she made in her room to this day.

With the proper child chosen, Wakana’s parents sent her away to Cloud. They sent her letters every month, which Wakana burned. Eventually they stopped sending letters.

In Cloud they shaved her hair, took away her clothes, dressed her in uniform, tied a blue cloth around her neck and organized her in lines of identical strangers who already seemed to know what they were doing. Kumogakure was not what her parents had promised—it was in disrepair, and Wakana see the evidence in the lights still not replaced, in the names of the dead announced over the intercom, in the shinobi she walked by in the street with haunted, hollow eyes and the sad pity in her instructors’ eyes.

Every day she stretched her body, meditated, stayed quietly in the back while her Aoi classmates traded insults with their Aka counterparts and tried not to stand out. She was not popular with her classmates; they were good with words, had a natural talent for it . . . But Wakana was blunt and had little patience for talking around the subject even then, which her classmates found to be very ‘red.’ She did not have an easy time.

Cloud died while she was still wearing her academy uniform. As riots broke out in the streets as shinobi turned on shinobi the teacher locked Wakana and the rest of her allies into their classroom and told them to stay put while he left. As explosions rocked the academy they freaked instead, melting the windows and pouring outside in a mad panic.

While the battle raged around her Wakana hid, huddled away while dust floated slowly onto her head from impacts and ozone from thrown lightning filled her nostrils. When the explosions had stopped Wakana crawled out, grabbed her old radio, set it to a frequency she'd learned and sent out a distress signal. A girl with turquoise hair responded, heaved Wakana onto her back and carried her away to a safe camp.

It was only later that Wakana learned that by allowing the teenager to save her Wakana had declared her allegiance for Nagai.

After a cursory analysis of her talents Nagai's new Cloud found her more asset than liability, promoted Wakana to genin and called it a day. Wakana was determined to be good in her position, even if it had come through serendipity. She worked as a field mechanic, gliding over the landscape to appraise bits of failing infrastructure and cobble them together to last just a little longer. From the gossip that spread around Nagai's forces, Wakana supposed that she had been lucky for having been picked up by the good guys. She was grateful for that; it let her focus on her work.

Her work was not safe. It was her job to make sure that important infrastructure ran, and Denryuu II's men were always working to make sure their infrastructure either broke or was reappropriated. For her and many other young shinobi it was learn to fend for herself or die. She did not die. Months ticked by, became years and burned the uncertainty out of Wakana. She was a survivor and she knew it, and that was the only thing that mattered. In Nagai's makeshift Cloud Wakana found her footing and began to call herself 'shinobi' in her heart of hearts.

When the time came to storm Jishaku city Wakana was there with the engineering division, setting up radio towers in the field to help better coordinate troop movements as they moved to cut the head off of what was left of the rogue Cloud. Wakana was in the surrounding hills fiddling with electronics when she saw a dragon of lightning rising into the sky and radio channels all came alive at once. They'd won. She was thirteen years old.

Relative peace under the Daishou allowed Wakana to tinker and experiment in peace in new Cloud. While she was still a genin she was at least a genin with a storied career and a proven nerve under pressure. Wakana has spent much of the four years that have passed since Nagai's ascension helping rebuilding Cloud's slapdash, jury-rigged infrastructure into something made to last. In commendation for her service during and after the war Wakana was promoted to Chuunin and Field Engineer.

As far as Wakana was concerned? It was about damn time.

Was expecting her family to die, given the whole 'Sakoshi being owned by the bad guys at one point' thing. Turns out they just...disappeared. I guess they're dead to her anyway. Did you intentionally not mention them at all? I'm not complaining since the whole 'evil twin' thing is kind of cliche anyway. Loose threads are cool.

Halfed if you fix the stat issue.

Sakoshi was captured, not destroyed. Neither of Cloud's splinters wanted to do harm to Sakoshi or its inhabitants, because they considered it a vital resource. Her family was especially safe, since they were scientists, and you don't fuck with Sakoshi scientists if you want anyone to do anything for you.

I'll fix that up real quick.
