Arrow [Mist Genin]Kawaguchi Takumi

Kawaguchi Takumi

Male 14 5’4” Kirigakure Genin

Physical Description: Unassuming, bland, boring. Takumi often goes unnoticed by his peers if only because he just looks like another face in the crowd. Regardless, there’s some type of boyish charm behind his glasses and a subtle glint of mischief behind his normally dull, unfocused eyes that would rather be glazed over in a day dream or pouring over the contents of a manga issue. Despite his apparent disinterest in being a shinobi, his body is well accustomed to the rigors of the craft, and he possesses a set of lithe, healthy muscle laid over his once scrawny frame.

His average height and small shoulders do little to make him appear imposing, however, and in fact, does just the opposite. Something about him is perpetually slight, with a triangular, venomous head shape and an upturned nose with a dusting of freckles across it. His eyes are a deep brown inlayed with flecks of amber, and his brows are thinned and surprisingly well-groomed. His body is well proportioned, with slightly longer legs and a slightly shorter torso than the average person.

Small ears are often obscured by a wild, blonde razor cut that causes his otherwise thick hair to thin out just enough to not knot. Takumi’s lips are thick, particularly the bottom one, giving him a kind of permanent pout. His teeth shine a bright white and he has a tendency to smell like a mixture of sea salt and clean linen.

Clothing: Takumi’s casual attire is dependent on what he’s doing. For the most part, he prefers a tracksuit or jeans and a hoodie, or a pair shorts and a polo, depending on the temperature. When it comes to his mission attire, Takumi is quite simple, and wears the standard Mist shinobi attire, minus the flak jacket. Occasionally, he’ll add a loose-fitting turtleneck to the ensemble if he’s feeling particularly cold that day. Regardless, most of what he wears it made of light fabric and tends to be varying shades of blues, grays, and simply black. He keeps his headband tied around his left arm usually. For the most part, he always has a set of circular glasses with a golden rim on.

Personality: Disinterested is a good way to describe him. Takumi never wanted to be a shinobi, and instead did so because he was forced to follow family tradition. Every generation, his father’s side of the family submits all of their able to the rigors of shinobihood. Despite showing a talent for the craft, Takumi prefers spending his free time doing anything else except for training. Because of that, he picked up quite the repertoire of random skills, ranging from cooking to ballroom dancing.

The sole reason he refuses to be a genin dropout is his grandparents’ sake. He knows how important carrying on the family legacy is to them – that doesn’t mean that he doesn’t spend just as much time helping his mother run her izakaya as he does on missions, though. She understands her son’s disinterest, but she does her best to encourage him to continue on his predestined path, leading to slight amount of familial resentment. It doesn’t help that his two older brothers are the cream of the crop, so to speak.

Still, Takumi isn’t the sour, brooding teenager that his home life might seem to make him. He’s an avid daydreamer and lives out his family’s hopes for him in exaggerated stories that belie his skillset. Despite never being assigned a team properly, most of the other shinobi he’s worked with enjoy his storytelling and singing abilities. He’s got a likable enough personality, as long as you don’t mind a sassy slacker.

He loves puns.

Biography: The Kawaguchi Clan make their home on the main island of Kodanetou inside the confines of Kirigakure. Despite not being known for any specific abilities that differentiate them from the average shinobi, the Kawaguchi have distinguished themselves as capable warriors over the past century. Their undying loyalty to the wellbeing of Kirigakure has earned several members a hefty amount of prestige – enough to construct their gated, barrack-like housing on the edge of Kirigakure’s residential district.

Takumi was born into this militaristic family as the youngest of three. Growing up, he had no love for the warriorlike nature of his two brothers and other family members. He was happy to help his mother run her pub the best he could and kept close to her side. Being softer than his siblings, his mother proved to be a bit more nurturing towards him, at least until his father and grandfather made a point to have him enrolled into the academy.

In truth, he hated it. Takumi was bright and never had any issues when it came to testing, but his grades often faltered when it came to take-home assignments. His disinterest with the Academy continued to grow and grow, though his family forced him to remain enrolled out of obligation.

When the Kawaguchi made a promise to the village (even if they were forced!), they kept it.

With his father forcing him to learn swordplay during his free time, Takumi applied himself just enough to humor his family into letting him be for the majority of the time. Like most of his family, he had the talent for shinobi work. Takumi just hated the idea of polishing himself. Why learn to kill people when you could bake cookies and read manga?

At the age of eleven, following the Hima Blaze incident and his oldest brother’s subsequent promotion to jounin (gross), Takumi was forced to undergo the graduation exam. His instructors believed that he’d be held back for a year – he spent most of the year doing his best to avoid sparring. When it came down to, he proved himself able to hold his own: A sneak attack at just the right moment managed to cut his opponent’s Achilles tendon, putting him out of the fight.

And so, Takumi got his headband. And surprised his entire family. They thought it was the beginning of a Takumi that actually applied himself. Despite not being assigned to a team, Takumi’s father stepped up and filled in the roll of sensei.

His family was wrong. Takumi couldn’t care less, and a rift began growing between him and his father with every passing day. But he couldn’t just send his son back to the Academy – the dishonor would be a stain on his legacy!

Then the Seagull War hit. Takumi, begrudgingly, deployed with his father to help quash the insurrection. He lacked the skill that his father did, but managed to hold his own, particularly well against a group of conscripted farmers with no combat knowhow.

Eventually, him and his father were ambushed. His father took the brunt of the attacks in order to protect his son, but it was at a cost. By the time backup and a medical team arrived, Takumi’s father lost usage of his legs. Even with all of Kirigakure’s medical team at his disposal, there was no fixing him. His father was forced into an early retirement, and Takumi was forced to burden his father’s ire.

The end of the war came swiftly, however, earning his next oldest brother a promotion. Takumi was passed over, following the entire thing – he lacked the skillset, even with having been a genin for two years at this point. Nemoha Maya, however, assumed leadership of Kirigakure, and the Kawaguchi adapted accordingly, preparing themselves for their next chapter.

In the year that followed, the predisposed Mizukage rose to the level of daimyo. Araiso Shuzamaru wasted little time in launching his attack. With their home blockaded, Takumi has a decision to make.

Do or die.
