  • Perception: C


0/2000 experience
Unique Abilities:

Experienced: Nobunaga is a more experienced Chuunin than one freshly promoted to that rank. Begins with an additional 500 experience. In recompense, he gains experience at half rate until he reaches 750 total experience through IC actions.

Wind Demon: Fuuton costs one rank less stamina to utilize, while Doton costs one rank more to utilize.

Master Weaver: Has used swords and ninjutsu together for so long that the act of making hand seals in one hand is now second nature. Coordination receives a penalty of one tier while doing this however.

Assault Specialist: When Nobunaga invades a land, his rank counts as one rank more when determining auto-hit range on NPCS. When he's defending his lands, his rank counts as one rank less.

Gambler at Heart: Nobunaga likes to risk things to get an early advantage in combat, and sometimes this pays off. Once per thread, he can roll a D10. If the number is 1-5, he gains a ++ to Strength for one attack. If it's 6-10, his opponent may apply two minuses in any combination to his Strength, Speed, or Coordination depending on how the risk didn't "pay off".

Sword Specialist: He may craft swords of one rank higher than his Coordination allows, though his attention to detail makes him picky about his chosen metals. Materials cost 50% more for swords.

Body Flicker Master: Nobunaga has completely and totally mastered the Body Flicker, no longer requiring the hand seal for its usage and decreasing the cost for Body Flicker by one rank. In exchange, his Coordination is counted as a -- less for other non elemental ninjutsu and each non elemental ninjutsu costs 1 point more to utilize including the Academy techniques.

Appearance: Nobunaga stands at 5'10" tall when standing perfectly straight, which is always. The man's posture is absolutely perfect at all times, and every single one of his movements look as if they have been practiced a thousand times over. He weighs in at 160 lbs and has very little body fat on him. As a result, he has fairly large muscles and good definition to them.

His face is somewhat square, with a noticeable jawline. He has a well kept beard and the stubble of a mustache, a look he maintains daily. Nobunaga's long, dark brown hair is almost always drawn up into a ponytail to keep it from getting in his face during a fight. His hair color matches his eye color, his eyes almost black they're so brown. He often maintains a serious disposition and rarely smiles even if he thinks something is amusing. Control over his emotions is key to becoming a good shinobi in his eyes, and even more important in becoming a lethal warrior.

Armor is a favored choice of attire, when he can afford it. He sometimes gambles away his armor when he runs out of money, leaving him with only kimonos and his flak jacket. He always has his two nodachi at his side, always alert and ready to carve apart an opponent if need be. He commonly wears modified shinobi sandals that have leather up to three inches above his ankle for support. His casual wear is usually a kimono, or shorts and a t-shirt if he's feeling really relaxed on that particular day.

History: Nobunaga was born to a cousin of the current main branch of the Kazehana, the first son in his father's line. He would be one of three boys born to his parents, and the only one with his mother's brown hair. His two younger siblings shared their father's blonde hair, marking Nobunaga as different from both of his siblings even at a young age. Being raised in what would become the Kazehana district when Sunagakure was formed, Nobunaga had a sword in his hands from the time he could walk. As young as three, he was being trained in the basics of swordplay by his father and his younger siblings would join as they grew older. He was one of the first members of the Kazehana to be born into a world where a shinobi village existed, what with the formation of Kirigakure and Iwagakure in the past few years.

During his training as a swordsman, he was introduced to the basics of ninjutsu with what would eventually become the academy techniques taught to all shinobi through the continent. He made excellent use of these techniques in his training regimen, learning how to form the seals required for them without even having to sheathe his swords. This skill would only grow as he became older, and is now a valued asset by Nobunaga during the time of the shinobi villages. His father also taught him one ninjutsu in particular, promising that its utility once mastered would be a tremendous boon to his skill as a swordsman. That ninjutsu was the Body Flicker, and Nobunaga would come to regularly utilize it as a way to quickly close the distance on his foe.

He was given his first assignment when he was eight years old, having recently discovered his affinity for Fuuton. Manipulating the element came as second nature to the child, and he had learned three ninjutsu of that element by the time of this mission. The rest of his team consisted of elder Kazehana who were meant to carry the brunt of the load on the assignment, with Nobunaga along to see what an assignment required in order to do execute it correctly.

This assignment was an easy one; protect a merchant as he traveled north to get to the Land of Earth. Unbeknownst to him, the true mission was to draw out a gang of bandits that had been raiding the northern fringes of the Land of Wind. To this end, everybody was dressed the same as the merchant with light armor on underneath. Nobunaga rode on top of the cart, being told to play the part of the easygoing kid. He did so by leaving his hood down, showing his already long hair in the ponytail he'd come to prefer over any other style of hair.

Sure enough, the bandits assaulted the caravan they believed to be undefended. They all received a rude awakening, as every Kazehana in the guard detail launched themselves at the attackers. This included Nobunaga, who found himself dueling a middle aged man. At eight years old and on his first mission, the young shinobi displayed a high degree of mastery and precision with his kenjutsu. It was his skill with the Body Flicker that won him the day however, as he managed to slip under his opponent's guard with a well timed usage of the ninjutsu and this gave him the only advantage he needed in that battle. The entire battle did not last long, with seven of the eight bandits being killed by the four Kazehana guards. Nobunaga slew one of these seven, the fresh memory forever branding itself into his soul. And for the first time, he had to clean the red hue of battle from his blade.

The following year and a couple assignments later, his family announced its intentions to form the fifth great shinobi village which would be named "Sunagakure". A cousin of his, one Shin Kazehana who was only a few years older than Nobunaga, was chosen as the first Kazekage. Nobunaga knew who Shin was, having idolized his much more talented and prodigious cousin while he was still in training. This was another driving factor towards him learning how to weave seals with one hand; if his cousin could do it, so could he!

This newly formed village, Sunagakure, would begin reranking its warriors with a new system of ranks. With Shin at the top as the Kage, Nobunaga was placed at the bottom as a Genin. He was an experienced genin, and was one of the first to be recommended for the first Chuunin Exams in Sunagakure's history at the age of ten. The genin went and participated, proving his skill with a blade and with ninjutsu.

He easily blew through his matches clear up until the finals, where he was forced to fight a member of the Fujio clan. Nobunaga's Fuuton was useless against his opponent, as he possessed the Scorch element and thus had both Katon and Fuuton to utilize against him. Nobunaga's attempts at closing the distance with kenjutsu proved useless as well, since his mid-grade items were easily melted and destroyed by his opponent's bloodline. This powerful bloodline he fought

Needless to say, he lost the final round of his exam and was absolutely infuriated with himself for doing so. He believed he had dishonored the Kazehana with his performance, but his immediate family would keep telling him he had done well. Despite his own feelings on the matter, Nobunaga was indeed promoted to Chuunin after his impressive climb through the matches and his excellent showing in the final.

With his new rank, Nobunaga was frequently selected to go on C rank missions with groups of other Chuunin. Many of these were assault missions intented to eliminate some of the last holdings of the stronger bandits in the Land of Wind. Taking point was his favorite thing to do, as he loved being the first into the fray. All in all, he went on six C rank assault missions over the course of four years, with some other ones mixed in for good measure. He also learned Doton during these years, hinting at his potential for the Kazehana bloodline though he has not grasped Doton nearly as well as he has grasped Fuuton.

After four years, Nobunaga began to realize that it was getting expensive to buy new nodachi from the market in the village. He didn't make enough on his missions to afford better quality blades, and as such had to settle for average or sometimes even lower quality blades which would then get broken or irrepairably damaged. Looking again to Shin for a guide, Nobunaga decided that he also wanted to pursue weapon crafting. He would take the next two and a half  years off to learn the art of forging a blade from a smith in town. He took no missions during this time, and only practiced enough to keep his skills at the same level they had been before. His free time was now devoted to gambling the money he got from his teacher, finding that the risk with gambling was another thing that got his attention in a similar way to battle. Sometimes, he would even gamble some of his products when money was a bit tight.

The last six months he has spent getting himself back into fighting shape, noting that he has lost some of his perceptive abilities since his time as an active duty Chuunin. He hopes to gain this back, and has decided to begin taking on new missions in the name of Sunagakure's name. And of course, to honor the name of his royal patrimony: Kazehana.

Personality: As his serious disposition would incline, Nobunaga tends to be a serious person. He doesn't like to base decisions based on emotion, believing them to lead to mistakes that could have easily been avoided had the person in question just stopped and thought for a moment. Honor is also a big part of who he is, believing it is wrong to kill an opponent who can no longer fight back. This doesn't mean he's afraid to kill somebody, though he would much rather keep his honor intact by making the killing blow while his opponent could still stand. Letting an obviously dangerous enemy go is something he will not do however, as his loyalty to the village outweighs his need for personal honor.

He is willing to go to extremes to uphold the pride of the village as well as its reputation, no matter how violent and bloody the task asked of him. Humor isn't his strong suit, but he does have a somewhat dry sense of humor when the environment isn't one with any tension in the air. His honesty is known by those of his rank and even by a couple above him and below, as he is not one to sugarcoat anything. Getting to the point as quickly as possible is what he wants to do, and idle banter is not something he's very good at.

Angering Nobunaga is next to impossible, as he has trained his willpower to resist his emotions and instincts under pressure. Because of this, taunts and insults tend to have little to no effect on him. He will protect allies who are weaker than he is, but those who he sees as stronger he will generally leave be since he sees it as a stain on that person's honor to need a subordinate's aid in a one on one fight. Obviously disadvantagous fights are not honorable to begin with, and Nobunaga will interfere if his ally is the one being ganged up on.

Sword Specialist: He may craft swords of one rank higher than his Coordination allows, though his skill at crafting anything made out of wood makes his Coordination count as one tier lower for that item.


*^ Not a good flaw. He could just not craft anything made from wood.


In exchange, his Coordination is counted as a -less for other non elemental ninjutsu and each non elemental ninjutsu costs 1 point more to utilize including the Academy techniques.

*^ Not a good flaw on the costs portion of this SA.

I suppose the difference is I find it extremely unlikely that anyone would want a wooden weapon. Its comparing the likelihood of you receiving the benefit to the likelihood of you receiving the flaw.


Im sorry its switched around. cost is fine but if you want sealless flicker it will incur some sort of deficit on your use of the technique itself
