- Sato Unagi
- ”Gama Oni” – “Toad Demon”
- Primary: Ninjustu
-Wearing simple clothing, Sato isn’t much for a color coordinator. He is normally dawned in black, from his coat, with a torn back appearing to be a short tattered cape when he’s in motion, to the undershirt he wears with a deep V neck, seldom seen under the coat. His pants are also black , save a white belt, and two kunai holsters around his thighs, and a black items pouch on the back of his belt. He ears his village head band around his left arm and a second head band for Mount Myoboku tied around his right. Finally his black ninja boots upon his feet nearly finish his outfit.
He often if not always ahs an arm guard or gauntlet, upon his left forearm. This is a light gray color but made of hard and durable metal, capable of being an adequate guard, but due to the small surface area it is minor, in terms of defense. Still quite capable of deflecting the stray kunai or shuriken though.
- Body Appearance
-Sato is a moderately tall man, often with good statue and composure. His red hair stands out but not as much as his odd frog-like eyes. Larger then normal and yellow in color, the eyes of Sato are defiantly unique and even gain a film over them when in water, similar to a frogs allowing enhanced sight in water.
Otherwise his body is toned from his training and well adapted to the movements of a shinobi, enhanced through his frog-like traits. He is normally seen as solemn or lazy due to his lack of expression, except the occasional bored face he is well known for.
- Blemishes & Scars
None worth noting, aside from his red hair and big yellow eyes.
- A moderately relaxed guy, Sato doesn’t often seem like one who cares strongly for things. This is because of the demeanor he portrays of being quite, lost in thought, or even lazy and bored. But in reality he’s just quite and often deep in thought. Although it is true few things really interest him.
He does find himself often struggling internally when it comes to doing the “right thing”. You see form his upbringing he doesn’t have extremely strong tries to any particular government but he does desire to do whats right for his fellow man. With that in mind he follows his elected leadership willingly but his concern lies with the people more then with the orders he receives, but he also doesn’t want to make things to difficult for himself or others, especially putting others at risk for his benefit. He’d rather deal with his own problems and would never intentionally bring harm to another for his benefit.
But otherwise, the conflicting notion would be his life as a shinobi. He does see a need for the shinobi as a weapon, but a weapon to cut into the oppressing darkness and help those by bring them light. A shinobi acts to help and save, and uses their awesome power and their very life for the protection of the people.
Other then his dilemma with what to do and how to better serve the people and the ‘right thing”, he is pretty care free and honestly cares for people. Although he can seem cold or solemn cause unless he see’s distress he can help relive, he will often try not to get attached for fear of just that, getting attached and thus feeling obligated to help them at any cost. But he does enjoy to be with friends and laugh/ He’s often very witty and knowledgeable. Loving adventure and the opportunity to see new things he often volunteers for such chances, and learning new jutsu, or just learning can be a joy to him.
His guilty pleasures include sleeping or wandering around, learning more interesting things, or just finding out funny facts about others. He greatly enjoys cats, and other animals, but cats mainly. It’s strange but true. He tries not to “oogle’ women, but sometimes he can’t help himself, and you may consider him a bit… pervy, but he often feels embarrassed to be caught but never regretful.
He can be very serious, and even being mad is not beyond him. Although he wouldn’t be considered short tempered or hot headed, he can often think things through but occasionally he disagrees with the authoritative figures. His mind centers around the good for the people, and his debate over what the “Right things to do” is and how to get to the desired goal. He focuses on the people above himself or the form of leadership and can be very driven to achieve a goal. In battle he can be vicious and even possibly loose sight of his goals, but this blind ambition doesn’t always last. Bu it’s important to note it is a character flaw. He hates to loose, and won’t take it well.
The People, The Toads of Mount Myōboku & Takigakure no Sato
- Quirks & Tendencies
-Often appearing to be lazy, bored, or lost in thought is common of Sato. He is seen as being reserved or acting as if he could care less about any situation in particular, but such is disposition.
He has a bad habit of peeking on females, or even letting his gaze linger on them a bit to long, and often loosing his composure around a “gifted” women or cat… he has odd tendencies. But otherwise this quite, secretly brave and witty fella is a pleasure to be around.
- Toads and Frogs. His life long friends and family in some cases.
- Shady areas where one can rest and think
- The quiet, subtle noises of nature
- Reading and learning new things, even challenging things intrigue him.
- Women!!!.... and Cats….
- Sparring and bettering ones self as a shinobi, while creating bonds with other shinobi.
- Shogi, favored game and past time.
- Load, annoying noises that don’t fit the environment.
- Bossy or rude people. Where do they get off?!
- A lot of work is bothersome and annoying. He’d rather just relax.
- Death might be nessicary, but no man should have the right to decide who dies and when unless the death of one who is evil at heart will save the lives of those who are good.
- Overly hot tempetures are a drag that he’d rather avoid.
- Ignorance has no excuses.
- Intolerable people who feel that they deserve respect without earning it first, and in return treat others like crap. Self righteous bastards… -_-
The Past Leads to the Future
A Bloody Past Leaves a Stained Future
To properly understand Sato’s story, you must first be enlightened to the life of Sato’s father, Rin Unagi. You see Rin was a skilled shinobi of the Gamabushi, one of the few proud Toad warriors yet roaming the world. He was a nuke nin and a skilled, highly praised bounty hunter. His origins are yet unknown, but something in his life changed. It was substantial to say the least, taking him form the life of a hunter nin and making him change his life entirely. He fell in love, and whats more, she was pregnant with his child.
So he decided to abandon his life, being overwhelmed with the desire to be with and focus on keeping his new family safe and seeing his son grow into a fine young man. And he’d have his dream partially met. After disappearing form the world he once lived in, residing in a nameless trading village, his son was born, twins in fact. Sato and Kuro Unagi. However times were not meant to remain in his favor.
His bloody past finally came rolling through town, in the form of a gang who’s leader Rin was responsible for assassinating. When they discovered that the assassin was living in this village, they went mad with anger, and joy at such good fortune as having the chance to rip his life rom him. IN the end, they killed not only Rin, but his entire family, his wife, and it’s believed that they killed Kuro as well, before Rin was able to reverse summon his son to the land of the Toads, Mount Myoboku. This is where Sato’s story really begins.
Life As a Toad:
Sato was taken into life here on Mount Myoboku, the Great sage having foreseen his arrival and after the Toads assessed what had happened, they understood that this was the only safe place left to the boy. His family lost, he was lucky enough to be born a Gamabushi, and as such, he was welcome among the toads. Here is where Sato Unagi would grow up, he would learn from the toads and eventually they would tell him the truth of his family when he was old enough.
The truth startled him, a young boy as he tried to make his decisions on what to do with his life, the news of his family struck him greatly. It was this that pushed him to become a shinobi. He would beg the masters of Mount Myoboku to train him and eventually they would, for they saw his purpose for the pursuit. He wanted to get strong, to honor the memory of his family by protecting the people that could not protect themselves. He would spend the next few years of his life learning eh arts of the shinobi form the toads, often traveling back and fourth form the human world to learn about it as well, and talking to the few other Gamabushi that would travel to the Mount of the Toads.
As time progressed so did his skills and the confidence the Toads held in him. After long ago signing the contract with the Toads, they decided it was time for Sato to venture out into the world he truly belonged to. Taking his learned skills to follow his goal in life. He wouldn’t be able to help anyone hiding away here, and they were right. At this same time a village was rising, after seventeen long years Takigakure no Sato was once again being recognized as a shinobi village but it lacked the power to demand respect and truly protect it’s people. So Sato decided it was the perfect place for him. He would go and as his heart commanded him to, protect the people and honor the memory of his parents.
The Toads set it up then, to have him become a shinobi there, promising that he was skilled and would be a well received part of the village, and after a visit form the Toads of Mount Myoboku, the officials accepted. They were pleased to have good standings and a connection to the powerful Toads and another able bodied shinobi was always welcome. So Sato now begins his journey among his own people, a newly made Shinobi of Takigakure.
