The blades of vengeances have fallen swiftly. The shinobi are no more as 'Absolute Justice' has returned...now, it is the Samurai that rule the Five Major Nations!
But at what cost? Have they become the very thing that they despised the most...? Heroes and villains seem to change roles every day, but one thing is for certain - we yearn for our freedom, for days gone by where we flew the skies unhindered.
HEIGHT:[/B] 5'1" WEIGHT:[/B] 100lbs PHYSICAL FORM:[/B] Boyish-skinny, yet quite athletic. HAIR COLOUR:[/B] Ginger. EYE COLOUR:[/B] A cross between yellow and green.
It's pretty easy to say that on first appearance it would be quite hard to tell that she was a Shinobi. With a slightly weedy-looking appearance, bearing pale skin and having quite a small frame on her, you'd think that she would be more suited to what of a genjutsu user rather than ninjutsu or taijutsu. However, what lays on the surface is but a cover for what is within her- With a burning passion for taijutsu and all things to do with combat and training, she makes up for her slightly unhealthy appearance by going forwards and attempting to become the best shinobi that Konohagakure has ever seen- A goal of hers, for sure!
However, despite this the girl cannot exactly be seen as a beauty due to her slightly plain appearance, but by no means can she just ben looked at and then forgotten- With hair the same colour for freshly harvested carrots (Yet not being too vibrant, it's quite a casual shade of orange, really) in combination with her pale skin and captivating eyes, she is indeed someone on the street who you'd probably look at for a few moments before turning away. Her hair is drawn in with a side-fringe, and is in quite a short-chopppy-bob shape. Should you look hard enough, you would see two very short ponytails in the bottom layer. Because of these attributes and the fact that she has quite a nice facial structure, her face not gaunt or it's opposite, but instead, an oval shape, with no freckles or any marks upon them, not even acne, which she says all comes down to her diet, the amount of water she drinks, and the training she takes part in daily. A person who cannot stay still doing nothing all day, her body is a good example of the effects of her training, and she is quite glad to have such an active lifestyle as far as exercising is concerned.
Even though she is quite thin, it all has to do with her frame- Being quite a short person she is pefectly proportioned, her legs perhaps being a little bit longer than the rest of her, but nonetheless perfect. With a small frame to go with this it's only expected for her to be quite thin in appearance, and with her vigorous training that she partakes in every day, it has helped tone her body but not to the extent of looking like someone on steroids, but instead has simply made her quite lean with little fat to her name. Along with this, her chest is quite small in comparison with others, although she doesn't really care about this, and in the past has commented on them saying that if they were larger, they would surely get in the way of her training.
On top of her boyish figure she wears quite natural-coloured clothing. On the first layer she wears a net shirt which reaches her elbows, revealing her bra if nothing is worn on top of it, and on the bottom she wears a pair of brown shorts which are slightly baggy in style but draw atop her knees. On top of the net shirt she wears a kimono shirt of brown and green, and has a large number of belts wrapped around her waist which simply exaggerates how thin her waist is. These can always be seen on, and only rarely can she be seen without the belts or the kimono shirt on. Atop of this ensemble she wears a white haori which belonged to her late teacher. At the start it had been to big for her, but now she has grown in to it a bit- It's still big on her, but she pulls the style off quite well. On top of these she wears knee-high boots in the colour of green, which bear a little heel on them. Being a Konohagakure shinobi she wears her headbandon her left arm, and sometimes wears a scarf around her neck.

Whilst some people may be constantly shouting at others and some people may be constantly worrying about certain things or something, Ishi is one of those cool, laid back people.
Calm A trait which she has had since she was a young child- Ishi has always had a sense of calm to her which can easily be transfered to others. Her mind is usually always at ease and she finds it quite hard to get angry at people unless it really grips her nerves. Even though she enjoys training and doing interesting things that require a lot of work liked doing missions, her attitude towards life is quite pleasant, and she can usually get on the good side of most people due to this trait of hers. Being quite a people person she enjoys meeting new people, and her calmness can also be seen in even the most dire of situations.
Happiness comes easily! Due to her quite poor background after her adoptive parents went out to war, she has come to value even the simplest things in life that others may take for granted, like food and clothes. Because of this, even though it has been years since she once lived on a few rations a day, she still has a down-to-earth nature within her which makes her quite content at even the simplest of things, from being taught basic things or even by being given gifts. She is thankful for the things that she has, and always tends to look out for others and help where she can.
Sadness, shown not so much! Of course like all other people in the world she also can feel the feeling of sadness as easily as any other. Although, unlike others instead of simply crying on the spot she contains this within her and keeps herself distracted for as long as she can. Due to this tactic and bottling up her feelings she can usually be seen doing this for a few months and then exploding in a slightly violent rage of words when she finally cannot contain everything in her any more. Due to this her calm self is usually seen in sad situations, and instead of being the one who is comforted, she is the one who comforts others. Not really liking to be seen as a crybaby or as a weak person in that sense, she has trained this trait of hers to prevent her from crying in situations where tears would be expected, so to some, this can make her look a little bit cold-hearted.
Eccentric..? Although she isn't one of those amg amg random!!!!!fish!!!!! type of people, her eccentricity can be seen in other ways. For instance, she can sometimes be seen speaking to herself when she's training or just walking in the street, and due to her strong connection to nature she can frequently be seen speaking to plants or trees, and sometimes even go so far as to say that they speak to her. Of course, this is truly a good part of her which shows what her life events have done to her, and it has truly taken a toll on her sanity but instead of making her a murderer or something like that, it has simply helped her eccentricity blossom, and although usually she has a pretty good sense of self-control, she does have her random outbursts when she wants to, and at some points, can really be seen as a madwoman. Despite this, she is a pretty pleasant person to speak to.
A good leader and friend Although she has a bad past due to deaths in both her old team and friends, she seems to have come over it although she is much more paranoid about such things now that those events have happened. Having lost her ex-students to death, her teacher, and various friends of hers, she now cherishes people quite well and will go out of her way to assure that they are safe from harm. She usually plans things out very well and is quite a tactician when she wants to be. On the other hand, when it comes to friendships, she is always there for people in need and can be seen as somewhat of a big-sister or even a motherly type figure for those close to her because of her nature to comfort, console and to protect. However- Unlike some, this trait is shown towards almost everyone, not just close friends.
Psycho drunk! Sure- Ishi is a lovely girl- She's very nice to her friends and strangers alike, has a good sense of pride in her work and has quite a nice personality to boot, but there are some parts of her which she isn't exactly proud of. One; Her slightly broken personality due to her eccentricity which leads her to think that perhaps her kindness is simply a branch of that, and two; Her addiction to all things alcoholic. She is a keen lover of drink and if she can find it; She will drink it. Despite being under the legal drinking age she still goes ahead and drinks things, even going so far as to use henge in order to make herself look older so she can purchase it. She is an obvious alcoholic, and when under the infulence, what can be described as an alternate personality is unveiled. This person, although bearing the appearance of Ishi, is but a demon full of anger and hate. Surely enough when she is drunk she can sometimes be lovely and almost happy-go-lucky as she always is, but she is very temperamental at this stage and isn't someone to be taken slightly, as her mood can change within moments. Known as someone who is constantly kicked out for bars for starting fights and being disorderly, one of her most famous ventures being she having left a boy in hospital after starting a fight. The girl, being but 5'1", isn't one to be messed with when under the infulence,
[/B] • Sake. • Alcohol. • Vodka. • Trees, plants and nature in general. • Training and exercising herself to be brink of exhaustion. • Meeting new people. • All kinds of food.
DISLIKES:[/B] • Being declined alcohol. • People who are constantly angry. • Being seen as weak. • The idea of death. • People who don't respect authority or other people. [/justify] [/ul] ALLEGIENCE:[/B] Ishi is fiercely devoted to Konohagakure and all who abide the rules of the village. The Hokage and people of higher rank than her being her superiors, she responds to them with the utmost respect. If they respond to her with little respect in return she isn't one to clearly state her opinion of them, but will silently begin to dislike them, although this is uncommon for her. She is very vigilant to what is good and bad within the village, and if there is no one to stop crimes, she will go ahead and try and cease it, for the good of Konoha.
ALLIGNMENT:[/B] Lawful neutral.
QUIRKS:[/B] Because of her eccentricity she finds it very hard not to embrace this part of her and can say strange things at times, be seen speaking to trees and plants, and obsesses over nature- Even going so far as to give lectures to people who stamp on flowers, and also claims to be able to speak to plants. Along with this she has a thick sense of paranoia around her, and is incredibly scared of death and the possibilities of what's over at the other side. Because of this she protects her friends, although strangely enough, she would be more willing to sacrifice herself rather than let close friends go through the same pain.
Here is a list of the people that she currently knows, and what relation they have to her, how they met, and what she thinks about them, may it be good or bad.
To start off, we go back years towards the days of her mother and her lover. A flaming redhead, her name unknown was the second half in a one-night stand between her and a man, she never seeing him again due to the war that was currently occuring between a minor countries which her own village of Kusagakure was apart of. Unfortunatley for her she found herself pregnant and although the woman was known to be incredibly feisty and bearing an awful temper, she couldn't bring herself to terminate the child, who she found was innocent and would simply be the victim of a problem that she herself had caused. She travelled around without the father, he now having gone back home to his home village or somewhere else in the war, as the child grew and grew but- Soon on a warm october night as she crossed the border of Kusa no kuni, she would find herself having the child quite early on, at least a month or two earlier than the date she was supposed to be due- Despite this, the child was born within the clinic of a small town, and she would be called Ishi- Pebble.
With such a small, frail life in her hands the mother would soon make a decision which would shape her newly born daughter's life. Instead of taking her back home to her village and raising her as her own, she instead travelled to one of the most prosperous villages at that time, and left her near the guard station of the village within what would appear to be a green pashmina. And with this one last goodbye then woman would hastily make her leave, but to where? The unknown. The child was soon taken in, and after a few years of staying in a home, was soon adopted. Although the girl at a young age showed signs of having vibrant orange hair, she knew it right off the bat that she wasn't the chlid of this couple, since the two bore brown hair and had no resemablance to the girl herself. She was raised happily on a farm as she aided in the collection of fruit and vegetables from a young age, and was taught how to farm and she herself claims that it was where her love for nature came from. All was fine until her ninth birthday where for the first time in years, she spent it alone.
The two who took care of her; Both Jounin, had been sent off to the plains of Kusa no Kuni where they were to help out in rebuilding one of the smaller settlements after it had been ravaged by attackers. They never returned, and Ishi soon found the responsibility of looking after a farm weighing heavily on her shoulders, as she soon found it hard to sustain her health living on but a small percentage of what she farmed, having to sell the rest in the market- Although, due to there only being one of her she found it hard to balance her work and her academy teachings at the same time, although at the age of 12 she was taken in by a Hiroko Hebereke who became a father-figure for her as well as a teacher. He begun to teach her in the ways of Goken as he hadn't been able to mould chakra, and he taught her many lessons- Both mental lessons, and ones to do with training, he having inspired her to become the person that she is today. By no means did her past turn her in to some sad loner; Instead it had simply made her strive to be more than she was at the time, and in some ways, it had succeeded.
But, all things come to an end and soon his death had come along whilst she was in the chuunin exams, she coming back to find a letter from him explaining the illness that he was no doubt going to perish from, his katana, and his haori, which she now wears with pride in his memory It was after this point that she had begun to drink heavily, and it has continued to this very day. After this event happened, many other ones came along with it, in example the team that she took after becoming chuunin, each member having been killed off, even the boyfriend of one of them, which leads her to believe that she is a burden of bad luck. Despite this she keeps it in the back of her mind usually, and tends to think on the bright side instead. Having placed all these things behind her for now she is now looking to start her life once more, and perhaps give teaching another chance, to try and restore her goal of becoming as good as mentor as Hiroko had been to her.
[/color][/center] Even though taijutsu is a very important factor to Ishi, she is also capable of using Ninjutsu and genjutsu, but she is to a fan of using weaonry in her attacks; Those which she owns, will be listed here.
PRIMARY WEAPON(S):[/b] Her main weapon is her Katana, which she was given by her teacher, Hiroko Hebereke. It was passed down from his own sensei, Kira, to him, before it was then given to Ishi prior to his death. She wears it on her side, and it is always present on her.

This is just to make EXP Counting easier for me as I'm pretty rubbish when it comes to keeping track with numbers. This will include all of the current styles or types of techniques that Blanche currently has.
