Akihiro chuckled at the thought of Ningyo's father taking her mother home with him because she was so pretty. It seemed to be quite a love story and although Akihiro was only a child a knew very little about love, he could appreciate this one as it seemed to make Ningyo happy
"Well...The Uchiha don't really have a main family." Akihiro stated, pondering for a moment to actually think back on how the Uchiha functioned. The Hyuuga's method of using branch families to defend the Byakugan and the Main family seemed quite effective but the young Uchiha found it...odd, to say the least. "We sort of elect our clan leader based on fighting prowess and ability to...well, lead. It usually gets decided on a general clan meeting." He shrugged. Political business wasn't really his turf and he usually attended those meetings because his father forced him to and not because he wanted. He was only a Genin, what was he supposed to do?
Then he chuckled a bit again when he saw Ningyo going on about her skills and specialization, but above that, he liked hearing her talk about her passion for puppet crafting and use. She made it seem so interesting and joyful that Akihiro didn't even consider the countless hours of training one usually needed to spend on the art before even being able to lift a puppet off the ground. "Have you crafted any puppets yet? I'd love to see them!" he joyfully asked, his natural curiosity peeking from behind his eyes. Before she could answer tho, Akihiro decided to give his own answers. He had asked a lot of questions and now it was his turn to answer some!
"I was born right here in the Leaf. My parents aren't really high ranked within the clan or anything, they're just ninjas serving the village. Mom retired when she found out she was pregnant with me, and my dad now just does basic jobs within our borders. I was supposed to master Fire Release, but apparently, I haven't inherited that element from them. I'm a Fuuton user, although all of my favorite jutsu are Genjutsu! They're amazing, they can take you away from reality and make you see wonderful things. Mom taught me both Fuuton Ninjutsu and Genjutsu. Dad tried to teach me Katon but I don't really have that talent." he shrugged.
