Unique Abilities:

One-handed seals- Shin is capable of making one-handed seals. A tier drop to coordination occurs regarding the use of these seals.

Master Puppet Crafter- Shin is capable of creating puppets that receive a boost allowing them to go above the A-rank level in the Constitution stat during usage. On the other hand, these specific puppets only go up to B-rank in Strength. The list of puppets which receive this boost needs to be stated at Shin's character updates.
In the same way, puppets that aren't on the updates list will not benefit from this ability.


Flicker - Shin is able to perform the Body Flicker technique without handseals. His coordination suffers a - drop while flicking if the jutsu is executed this way, however.

Appearance:
Despite his title, renown, and legends born from his exploits beyond the walls of Sunagakure, the first thing people notice when they see Shin is height. The first Kazekage is short for his age, standing at a mere 5.4 feet. Another unusual feature of Shin is the color of his hair, which turned white at a very young age and remained that way to this day. His skin is of a dark tone, probably due to the daily doses of heavy sun that shower both him and his kin. He wears normal boots (which become long boots on his short legs), making it an almost comic view to those who pause and wonder why a "kid" would choose to wear them. The reason is simple, comfort. He also wears blue shirts and pants. Around his left arm is usually wrapped a bandage, which he wraps around his hand whenever he uses the forge. The purpose of this bandage is to prevent blisters on his hand. Not the most effective method, but it is certainly better than holding the hammer with his bare hands.

Strapped around his body are several pieces of metal held together by leather strips, covering vital spots mainly. It is a simple armor of his own fashion that protects him a little and yet still allows him to move freely around the forge and when in battle. On his neck the Kage wears a red, oversized scarf that had accompanied him through most of his life. Its purpose is not only to keep the sand from his mouth and hiding his identity to enemies when necessary but also to remind him of home and the reason why he is fighting. Nowadays the Kage duty prevents him from leaving the village as often as he would like to, nevertheless he is still seen wearing the scarf most of the time.

History:

Shin was born in 909 A.S, a time of disorder and instability in the Land of Wind. He was not born as a direct heir to the Kazehana throne, instead being born within a minor branch of the clan, settled in the lands currently occupied by Sunagakure no Sato. Despite the troubling times, Shin had a rather happy childhood. Both his mother and father were well and alive during his first years of life. He was home schooled by his own mother, and at the age of 6 proved to be not only a good student but also adept at several "ninja game", created by the clan to detect and develop their children's aptitude for warfare at a very early age. It sounded like a cruel system, but the games kept the Clan alive and Shin would be lying if he said he didn't enjoy them. He was running around playing hide and seek, conquering "fortresses" of sand, and fighting other children his age all day. The kid would soon learn the consequences of his small size, the hard way. Fighting was not an easy thing to do, but perhaps due to the support of both his parents Shin persisted and learned to adapt. While taller, stronger children used brute strength and intimidation to get what they wanted, Shin had to learn how to use precise strikes and throw people off balance using their own strength against them. He needed to make friends, and lead them. Soon and under his leadership, a group of average and small sized children was ruling the drilling yards and nothing happened there without his permission. The upper branches of the clan did not fail to notice how the hierarchy of the children was turned around and the big boys were suffering at the hands of organized groups. Once they found the one responsible for this strange occurrence, they dragged him (quite literally) towards the inner sanctum of the Kazehana capital. Along with him were dragged his crew and some of the other boys (the most troublesome ones).

"The Conscription" happened every year, where men would search the clan for boys and girls to be trained for their wars and to refill the military ranks emptied by constant warfare. This year, however, things were a bit different. 916 was a year of change in the world. To the North, organized villages were being formed and the Kazehana Clan could not stay behind. Shin' training was the pilot program of Sunagakure no Sato's current Ninja Academy. In 916 however, things were much rougher.

At the age of seven, Shin and his mates were trained daily, taught the art of war and survival in the desert. He couldn't help but notice that there were not only men and boys his age, but also women and girls ranging from seven to maybe 50 years old. Everyone was being given a formal training and ninja education. But it was brutal. Their training camp, the Sand Forge, was within the inner sanctum, but it was still in the desert. They would train outside under the hot sun rays. the training yard was a gigantic square surrounded from all sides by buildings that made their quarters. These buildings looked more like walls than anything else but they served their purpose. Inside, they would sleep 4 in rooms destined for 2 people. The beds were made of stone, very much like the rest of the building. But they held furs which kept whoever was sleeping there warm and shielded from the terribly cold desert nights. The windows had no glass or anything to shield them from the breeze or sandstorms. This was the birth of the "4 Men Cells" in Sunagakure no Sato. Each room crew was made of 3 children and one adult (or an older child once they ran out of adults to distribute). Shin would soon learn that their survival in this situation depended heavily on their squad philosophy. Some adults and older children would oppress their squad mates. Treat them like their dogs or slaves but once the drills became more complicated and they saw the need for teammates, things calmed down. No more than 12 squad leaders were assassinated by their own men and less than 79 squads had men die or getting themselves injured during the drills of the first year. On the second year, the number lowered to no assassinations and 13 squads failing drills and having to re-do the whole year. For a total of 300 squads and roughly 1200 men and women, the experiment had been a success so far, with the death of only roughly 100 people. It was a difficult period of his life, but the daily training made Shin an incredibly effective murder machine and taught him to stand and fight for his clan and home.

Shin "graduated" from this primitive Academy at the age of 9, his body tempered by the Sand Forge and his mind sharpened by the instructors. His squad mates had been well trained as well, and their squad was on the top tiers of this new army. His Clan had high expectations of them all. They graduated and received their weapons and armor in 918. In that year, he and his squad were also sent outside the walls for a mission in foreign territory for the first time.

Each military service term consisted of 2 years in the Sand Forge and 3 years of obligatory service. Most of their missions consisted of subduing lesser clans, putting end to rebellions and hunting spies along the desert. There were very little "Genin" jobs, such as walking dogs or pulling weeds. This was a time of warfare, a time when the Kazehana needed to take absolute and total control over the Land of Wind and where warrior children could not afford to be children, only warriors. It made no difference, Shin's childhood died once he stepped foot inside the Forge for the first time. For 3 years he served, waging open war, walking the shadows of assassinations and even hunting assassins. His squad served with him, and their exploits became legendary. The "Echo Squad" they were called, were responsible for single handily subduing more than 60 lesser clans over the course of those three years. To be fair, most of these clans were not subdued through open warfare. Once the first ten or so had been brutally conquered over the course of one and a half year, the squad had gained such a terrifying reputation that their mere presence on the battlefield was enough to persuade the leaders of re-joining the empire. As such, for the fllowing year and a half the Echo Squad did very little combat, instead simply strolling through the Land of Wind as a method of "persuasion". This made quelling rebellions a much faster job, and during the time it had taken them to battle 10 clans into submission they managed to make vassals of 57 clans through diplomacy and intimidation alone. The Echo Squad was the face of the Empire.

And that is why in the year of 921 everyone was shocked when Shin announced he was retiring back to his family, at the age of 12. Despite having been dragged away at such a young age, Shin remembered well both his parents and longed to see them again. Due to the value of his Echo squad, the village would seldom allow him time to visit his family. They were never in the village for more than a few hours before they had to move out again. Truth to be told they had spent the whole 3 years traveling and Shin was weary.

His homecoming was not what he had expected, tho. The apartment where the family had lived was still there, but his family was not. His father had been taken in the war, fighting and holding off against the rebellious clans while the elite units were being  Forged. His mother had been taken by disease and perhaps sorrow. Shin lived in the apartments for 3 months before voluntarily rejoining the military. Very few people voluntarily signed up for another 3 years term, but Shin was one of those few people.

The Echo squad however, had been disbanded. 2 of its members had no wish to return to the battlefield and the third had died struck down by an assassin during a solo mission. Not wanting to be re-assigned to a nother squad, Shin used his influence to be allowed on Solo missions. This was when his interest for Kugutsu grew exponentially and he learned and made full use of the potential of this art. He had been running deep undercover missions in the Land of Rock for a whole year when he was called back to the village.

Upon returning, Shin found out that things were harsh for the empire and its people. The name "Kazahana" brought fear to some and disgust to others, and they were losing citizens to foreign nations. As such, the village elder council had decided to take the next step and reform the empire. Their capital was renamed, Sunagakure no Sato was its new name. And Shin had been chosen to lead the military forces as "The First Kazekage", in 922. As such, Shin never did end up serving the remaining 2 years of his second term on the field. At the age thirteen, near fourteen, Shin was nominated Kazekage.

His rule as Kazekage was aided by an elder council and he did not hold true power until the year of 924 when he turned 16. For a very long time Shin could not understand why he had been selected for the position- but the council made it pretty clear the first time he asked. His exploits and deeds had outdone every other living ninja in the village, and the fame of the Echo Squad was well known. Changing the name and the structure of the Empire to a Village/Kingdom was good for keeping the citizens and cleaning their name. But even better was fetching a child prodigy war hero and making him the face and leader of this new village. His task was to lead Sunagakure into a new age, and he set out to do it to the best of his ability.

The following years, from 922 to 930, were years of internal struggle and fighting to stabilize the realm. Under his ruling, however, Sunagakure no Sato was not only stable by the year of 925 but making efforts to improve their technological and military branches. Today the village is stable and holds a more than reasonable grip over the lesser clans of the Land of Wind. Its walls are tall and strong, and it became one of the five major villages in the continent.

During these years Shin has also honed his skills. Those which had once been honed only during battle and travel... now he had the oopportunity to read, to learn, to seek training from ninjas more experienced in areas that he didn't know about. These years of Kageship and intensive training allowed him to raise his power and abilities to the stuff of legends, although very few know his true potential.

Personality:
Shin is, overall, a very restrained individual. He cannot remember how his personality was before the Forge, but after the hellish training, he changed. He abolishes impulsive behavior, both in him and in his ninjas. From a young age he learned (due to his size) to study his opponent and think before acting. Striking "Hit hard, where it matters and when it matters" was his motto during every fight and while he was riding with his squad. Shin has very few hobbies, other than forging puppets and coming up with new creations. His job as Kazekage leaves him time for very little else and before he was Kazekage Shin traveled so often it was hard to focus on any hobby. This developed a curious side to him, however, and he acquired the taste for learning and discovering new cultures. Trying new dishes, dances, learning new languages. Despite being there to enforce the peace of the Kazehana Clan, Shin knew how to have fun,  relax and absorb the local culture. And most importantly, he knew how to do all of this without getting himself killed in the process.  

Shin believes he has heard every joke in the world about his height while at the Sand Forge, and despite nurturing a pet hatred again anyone who makes those jokes, the young Kage can be amused by a joke he hasn't heard before. As a Kage, Shin is strict. During these troubled times, he believes that discipline is of the utmost importance. He doesn't care what his soldiers do in their free time so long as it doesn't harm the village nor compromises their ability to fight. But when they're on duty, there are no excuses for improper behavior. Being strict doesn't mean he can't be friendly, however. Shin would never have gotten this far if he wasn't able to make friends- either because they're amused by his height or lured by words, people are naturally attracted to Shin and he has a way to make them stay.

Hey Lyon, welcome to the site~

I don't have much time right now, but at a glance there's a few things that need tweaked. First, Advanced Elements actually do not cost a skill point on their own. Typically they're going to require experience costs which you can find for the Kazehana here. This leaves you with one extra skill to allocate or trade for a stat.

Second, S rank stats cost two stat points instead of the typical one when considering your maximums. This was supposed to be posted in the Character Stats and Limit Break Points rules thread but was overlooked. We're still finishing up last minute touches, so I apologize. Your stats will need to be redone accordingly, as you currently have two stats over your maximum.

Besides those, everything else looks fine. I'd ask that you please post how much experience you have spent and any remaining below your stats, including any spent for your bloodline, any unique abilities you may wish to have, and your stats.



On a personal note, thank you for filling in as Kazekage! We all appreciate it <3

By my count he's over by four stats in his maximum unless I'm missing something.

This was when his interest for Kugutsu grew exponentially and he learned and made full use of the potential of this art. He had been running deep undercover missions in the Land of Rock for a whole year when he was called back to the village.

Upon returning, Shin found out that things were harsh for the empire and its people. The name "Kazahana" brought fear to some and disgust to others, and they were losing citizens to foreign nations.

Today the village is stable and holds a more than reasonable grip over the lesser clans of the Land of Wind.

Shin has very few hobbies, other than forging puppets and coming up with new creations. His job as Kazekage leaves him time for very little else and before he was Kazekage Shin traveled so often it was hard to focus on any hobby. This developed a curious side to him, however, and he acquired the taste for learning and discovering new cultures. Trying new dishes, dances, learning new languages. Despite being there to enforce the peace of the Kazehana Clan, Shin knew how to have fun,  relax and absorb the local culture. And most importantly, he knew how to do all of this without getting himself killed in the process.  

Shin believes he has heard every joke in the world about his height while at the Sand Forge, and despite nurturing a pet hatred again anyone who makes those jokes, the young Kage can be amused by a joke he hasn't heard before. As a Kage, Shin is strict. During these troubled times, he believes that discipline is of the utmost importance. He doesn't care what his soldiers do in their free time so long as it doesn't harm the village nor compromises their ability to fight. But when they're on duty, there are no excuses for improper behavior. Being strict doesn't mean he can't be friendly, however. Shin would never have gotten this far if he wasn't able to make friends- either because they're amused by his height or lured by words, people are naturally attracted to Shin and he has a way to make them stay.

Appearance:
Despite his title, renown, and legends born from his exploits beyond the walls of Sunagakure, the first thing people notice when they see Shin is height. The first Kazekage is short for his age, standing at a mere 5.4 feet. Another unusual feature of Shin is the color of his hair, which turned white at a very young age and remained that way to this day. His skin is of a dark tone, probably due to the daily doses of heavy sun that shower both him and his kin. He wears normal boots (which become long boots on his short legs), making it an almost comic view to those who pause and wonder why a "kid" would choose to wear them. The reason is simple, comfort. He also wears blue shirts and pants. Around his left arm is usually wrapped a bandage, which he wraps around his hand whenever he uses the forge. The purpose of this bandage is to prevent blisters on his hand. Not the most effective method, but it is certainly better than holding the hammer with his bare hands.

Strapped around his body are several pieces of metal held together by leather strips, covering vital spots mainly. It is a simple armor of his own fashion that protects him a little and yet still allows him to move freely around the forge and when in battle. On his neck the Kage wears a red, oversized scarf that had accompanied him through most of his life. Its purpose is not only to keep the sand from his mouth and hiding his identity to enemies when necessary but also to remind him of home and the reason why he is fighting. Nowadays the Kage duty prevents him from leaving the village as often as he would like to, nevertheless he is still seen wearing the scarf most of the time.

History:

Shin was born in 909 A.S, a time of disorder and instability in the Land of Wind. He was not born as a direct heir to the Kazehana throne, instead being born within a minor branch of the clan, settled in the lands currently occupied by Sunagakure no Sato. Despite the troubling times, Shin had a rather happy childhood. Both his mother and father were well and alive during his first years of life. He was home schooled by his own mother, and at the age of 6 proved to be not only a good student but also adept at several "ninja game", created by the clan to detect and develop their children's aptitude for warfare at a very early age. It sounded like a cruel system, but the games kept the Clan alive and Shin would be lying if he said he didn't enjoy them. He was running around playing hide and seek, conquering "fortresses" of sand, and fighting other children his age all day. The kid would soon learn the consequences of his small size, the hard way. Fighting was not an easy thing to do, but perhaps due to the support of both his parents Shin persisted and learned to adapt. While taller, stronger children used brute strength and intimidation to get what they wanted, Shin had to learn how to use precise strikes and throw people off balance using their own strength against them. He needed to make friends, and lead them. Soon and under his leadership, a group of average and small sized children was ruling the drilling yards and nothing happened there without his permission. The upper branches of the clan did not fail to notice how the hierarchy of the children was turned around and the big boys were suffering at the hands of organized groups. Once they found the one responsible for this strange occurrence, they dragged him (quite literally) towards the inner sanctum of the Kazehana capital. Along with him were dragged his crew and some of the other boys (the most troublesome ones).

"The Conscription" happened every year, where men would search the clan for boys and girls to be trained for their wars and to refill the military ranks emptied by constant warfare. This year, however, things were a bit different. 916 was a year of change in the world. To the North, organized villages were being formed and the Kazehana Clan could not stay behind. Shin' training was the pilot program of Sunagakure no Sato's current Ninja Academy. In 916 however, things were much rougher.

At the age of seven, Shin and his mates were trained daily, taught the art of war and survival in the desert. He couldn't help but notice that there were not only men and boys his age, but also women and girls ranging from seven to maybe 50 years old. Everyone was being given a formal training and ninja education. But it was brutal. Their training camp, the Sand Forge, was within the inner sanctum, but it was still in the desert. They would train outside under the hot sun rays. the training yard was a gigantic square surrounded from all sides by buildings that made their quarters. These buildings looked more like walls than anything else but they served their purpose. Inside, they would sleep 4 in rooms destined for 2 people. The beds were made of stone, very much like the rest of the building. But they held furs which kept whoever was sleeping there warm and shielded from the terribly cold desert nights. The windows had no glass or anything to shield them from the breeze or sandstorms. This was the birth of the "4 Men Cells" in Sunagakure no Sato. Each room crew was made of 3 children and one adult (or an older child once they ran out of adults to distribute). Shin would soon learn that their survival in this situation depended heavily on their squad philosophy. Some adults and older children would oppress their squad mates. Treat them like their dogs or slaves but once the drills became more complicated and they saw the need for teammates, things calmed down. No more than 12 squad leaders were assassinated by their own men and less than 79 squads had men die or getting themselves injured during the drills of the first year. On the second year, the number lowered to no assassinations and 13 squads failing drills and having to re-do the whole year. For a total of 300 squads and roughly 1200 men and women, the experiment had been a success so far, with the death of only roughly 100 people. It was a difficult period of his life, but the daily training made Shin an incredibly effective murder machine and taught him to stand and fight for his clan and home.

Shin "graduated" from this primitive Academy at the age of 9, his body tempered by the Sand Forge and his mind sharpened by the instructors. His squad mates had been well trained as well, and their squad was on the top tiers of this new army. His Clan had high expectations of them all. They graduated and received their weapons and armor in 918. In that year, he and his squad were also sent outside the walls for a mission in foreign territory for the first time.

Each military service term consisted of 2 years in the Sand Forge and 3 years of obligatory service. Most of their missions consisted of subduing lesser clans, putting end to rebellions and hunting spies along the desert. There were very little "Genin" jobs, such as walking dogs or pulling weeds. This was a time of warfare, a time when the Kazehana needed to take absolute and total control over the Land of Wind and where warrior children could not afford to be children, only warriors. It made no difference, Shin's childhood died once he stepped foot inside the Forge for the first time. For 3 years he served, waging open war, walking the shadows of assassinations and even hunting assassins. His squad served with him, and their exploits became legendary. The "Echo Squad" they were called, were responsible for single handily subduing more than 60 lesser clans over the course of those three years. To be fair, most of these clans were not subdued through open warfare. Once the first ten or so had been brutally conquered over the course of one and a half year, the squad had gained such a terrifying reputation that their mere presence on the battlefield was enough to persuade the leaders of re-joining the empire. As such, for the fllowing year and a half the Echo Squad did very little combat, instead simply strolling through the Land of Wind as a method of "persuasion". This made quelling rebellions a much faster job, and during the time it had taken them to battle 10 clans into submission they managed to make vassals of 57 clans through diplomacy and intimidation alone. The Echo Squad was the face of the Empire.

And that is why in the year of 921 everyone was shocked when Shin announced he was retiring back to his family, at the age of 12. Despite having been dragged away at such a young age, Shin remembered well both his parents and longed to see them again. Due to the value of his Echo squad, the village would seldom allow him time to visit his family. They were never in the village for more than a few hours before they had to move out again. Truth to be told they had spent the whole 3 years traveling and Shin was weary.

His homecoming was not what he had expected, tho. The apartment where the family had lived was still there, but his family was not. His father had been taken in the war, fighting and holding off against the rebellious clans while the elite units were being  Forged. His mother had been taken by disease and perhaps sorrow. Shin lived in the apartments for 3 months before voluntarily rejoining the military. Very few people voluntarily signed up for another 3 years term, but Shin was one of those few people.

The Echo squad however, had been disbanded. 2 of its members had no wish to return to the battlefield and the third had died struck down by an assassin during a solo mission. Not wanting to be re-assigned to a nother squad, Shin used his influence to be allowed on Solo missions. This was when his interest for Kugutsu grew exponentially and he learned and made full use of the potential of this art. He had been running deep undercover missions in the Land of Rock for a whole year when he was called back to the village.

Upon returning, Shin found out that things were harsh for the empire and its people. The name "Kazahana" brought fear to some and disgust to others, and they were losing citizens to foreign nations. As such, the village elder council had decided to take the next step and reform the empire. Their capital was renamed, Sunagakure no Sato was its new name. And Shin had been chosen to lead the military forces as "The First Kazekage", in 922. As such, Shin never did end up serving the remaining 2 years of his second term on the field. At the age thirteen, near fourteen, Shin was nominated Kazekage.

His rule as Kazekage was aided by an elder council and he did not hold true power until the year of 924 when he turned 16. For a very long time Shin could not understand why he had been selected for the position- but the council made it pretty clear the first time he asked. His exploits and deeds had outdone every other living ninja in the village, and the fame of the Echo Squad was well known. Changing the name and the structure of the Empire to a Village/Kingdom was good for keeping the citizens and cleaning their name. But even better was fetching a child prodigy war hero and making him the face and leader of this new village. His task was to lead Sunagakure into a new age, and he set out to do it to the best of his ability.

The following years, from 922 to 930, were years of internal struggle and fighting to stabilize the realm. Under his ruling, however, Sunagakure no Sato was not only stable by the year of 925 but making efforts to improve their technological and military branches. Today the village is stable and holds a more than reasonable grip over the lesser clans of the Land of Wind. Its walls are tall and strong, and it became one of the five major villages in the continent.

During these years Shin has also honed his skills. Those which had once been honed only during battle and travel... now he had the oopportunity to read, to learn, to seek training from ninjas more experienced in areas that he didn't know about. These years of Kageship and intensive training allowed him to raise his power and abilities to the stuff of legends, although very few know his true potential.

Personality:
Shin is, overall, a very restrained individual. He cannot remember how his personality was before the Forge, but after the hellish training, he changed. He abolishes impulsive behavior, both in him and in his ninjas. From a young age he learned (due to his size) to study his opponent and think before acting. Striking "Hit hard, where it matters and when it matters" was his motto during every fight and while he was riding with his squad. Shin has very few hobbies, other than forging puppets and coming up with new creations. His job as Kazekage leaves him time for very little else and before he was Kazekage Shin traveled so often it was hard to focus on any hobby. This developed a curious side to him, however, and he acquired the taste for learning and discovering new cultures. Trying new dishes, dances, learning new languages. Despite being there to enforce the peace of the Kazehana Clan, Shin knew how to have fun,  relax and absorb the local culture. And most importantly, he knew how to do all of this without getting himself killed in the process.  

Shin believes he has heard every joke in the world about his height while at the Sand Forge, and despite nurturing a pet hatred again anyone who makes those jokes, the young Kage can be amused by a joke he hasn't heard before. As a Kage, Shin is strict. During these troubled times, he believes that discipline is of the utmost importance. He doesn't care what his soldiers do in their free time so long as it doesn't harm the village nor compromises their ability to fight. But when they're on duty, there are no excuses for improper behavior. Being strict doesn't mean he can't be friendly, however. Shin would never have gotten this far if he wasn't able to make friends- either because they're amused by his height or lured by words, people are naturally attracted to Shin and he has a way to make them stay.
