Kai's physique has largely been developed from rigorous training once he was alone he threw himself into working out and developing himself to be a dog of the military which has created muscular build. He has allowed his nigh-black raven hair to grow out and lets it flow down his back to about his shoulder blades, he doesn't wear it this way for his own preference but simply because hes neglected to cut it back.
Though strange to others the Kage-Hebi's eyes have ranged from many different kinds and Kai doesn't abstain from this rule either while his own optics are crimson in color while bearing the slitted pupil of a reptile aided by his sharp canines. Some may see it as unkempt but Kai has also let his nails grow out slightly so he could taper them to the slight appearance of claws. One of his most distinguishing features is a set of pauldrons on his shoulders said to be crafted from the black scales of a dragon.
More unique than many other kinds of body art, Kai has created multiple plugs and studs of iron that are placed through out his body. He first created these as ways to help intensify his training as weights. These iron studs are placed across his body up his arms, down both sides of his spines and chest, along his legs, and in his knuckles.
State 1: In it's dormant state, Kai's curse mark takes the appearance of a three tribal spirals with spiked ridges and is placed at the base of the back of his neck. When the first state is activated marks similar to scales will spread out from the mark around Kai's neck and shoulders then spreading further to cover his face and arms. smaller traits present in this form are elongates canines and nails.
State 2: When the second state is activated the pattern will cover Kai's body before turning it a gunmetal gray color while the scelera of his eyes will turn black and the iris's will turn gold. Among the random protrusions the Curse Mark is famous for Kai's draws upon his heart's deepest ambition, to be a dragon. First a set of raven wings will burst forth from his shoulder-blades, these feathers of these wings are naturally as hard as steel and can be used to slice an enemy to ribbons. Secondly a 2 meter ridged tail will surge from his tail bone, and lastly Kai's skin will shift and become scale-like.
Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
Likes Taste of iron; Sake; Women; warm temperatures
Dislikes Brats; Ignorance; cold temperatures; Airontoku; steam.
Cocky In any confrontation Kai becomes extremely self confident in taking out his opposition. His attacks are typically let out in fierce barrages of steel and iron crushing striking and slashing past his obstacles. He prefers close combat since it compliments his snake-like abilities. More often then not a nearly maniacal grin will spread across his face as he readies for the blood shed ahead.
Malicious The most common side of Kai is his brutal and bloodthirsty rage that has been known to lash out against the stupid and disrespectful. Born from his deep seated abandonment issues Kai will lash out against anyone who starts to bother him. This behavior had gotten him reprimanded many times during his academy days.
Laid Back Kai is often very relaxed despite his darker demeanor though those outside his village would rarely see this side of him. The reason for this is that during missions and such he becomes very impatient unless a cool head is required. This part of his personality is also largely dictated by his preference for cooler temperatures, the cooler the calmer in his case, however this trait only became evident after his Kekkai Genkai had awakened.
Protective Though rare it may be Kai is very protective of the few that manage to get underneath his iron skin. This was evident back when he was younger and would pull pranks on those his mother and father didn't agree with. Since the time of the loss of his family he has let very few women within the depths of his heart.
Maturity As he grew more mature his final wall gained a crack that would be picked at by humanity, those who showed a truly human part of themselves would gain good graces with Kai for it was part of their being he would see in that period of time. However as maturity comes so does reality and one of the basic truths is that the strong survive, because of this Kai understands and adheres to hierarchy which presides over the village for his own good, whether or not he likes it.
Kai was born originally to a couple who lived in the Land of Fire. This couple had been part of the original Kage-Hebi corps rooted within Kirigakure but had decided to leave and find their higher calling through their travels. They had come to settle in the lively Tanzaku town not long before the woman gave birth to the young Kage-Hebi. He had been a happy young child always following around his father and mother while playing pranks on those they didn't agree with while never getting caught. Though the behavior was typical his father was proud of his son's skill while his mother became worried for she became scared of the thought of him winding up in the military like his parents used to be.
Around the time he was 8 years old Kai went with his mother to her job as a waitress while his father went to his job as a military consultant to the daimyo of the Land of Wind. The day was uneventful for the most part, Kai simply sat in the back of the restaurant and stayed behaved waiting to go home and see his dad since he got home earlier than them. When they went home his mother noticed a man in black following them and she led Kai through a few back allies to lose their pursuer and make it home without Kai getting hurt. Once home his mother stopped him in the door way gasping in shock, Kai didn't understand and pushed past her stopping and staring at the dissolved corpse of his father. His mother understood it was the old feud that the Kage-Hebi had held with the Airontoku they had been war rivals when his parents were part of Sunagakure's military force. She grabbed Kai picking him up and running out of the building through the crowds understanding that their tail from earlier had been the killer. As they continued along his mother found a shipping truck headed to Kumogakure and put Kai on it and was about to get on herself when she stopped as a thick cloud of hissing vapor rose from her back. Kai started to cry but no sound would come as the truck started and began to move away. His final memory of that die would be of his mother falling to the ground with a burned hand print in her back and a man in a black hood walking away from her corpse.
After the day long trip to Kumogakure they stopped and a man working for the store they had delivered to was unloading the truck. He found Kai in the back of the truck curled in a ball silent and still crying. The man bent down and picked up the boy finding that he had fallen asleep. He took the boy home after that and housed him, after some time to become used to his new surroundings he had enrolled into the academy there passing it within the same year. Despite this rapid progression, Kai refused becoming a Gennin and left to train in the nearby caves to heighten his awareness of his own magnetic abilities. He returned after 3 years of this exile to become part of Kumogakure's military force.
