The first feature someone notices about a person is usually their hair. Saburo's hair is nothing special. It bears a colour somewhere in the mid-brown region, and is decently short. Saburo doesn't style it and as a result, it is usually somewhat messy. Some people say that Saburo has a slightly small nose, but that is a minute detail that most choose to ignore. For a long time of his life, Saburo thought that wearing a bandage over his nose looked cool. However, he is over that phase of his life, and opts to wear nothing unnecessary on his face.
Saburo is an exceptional combatant, and his body is a reflection of that. Because of his love for TaiJutsu, Saburo has trained and shaped his body into what it is now. He has a lean, muscular body. For a 15 year old TaiJutsu user one shouldn't expect anything less, especially from Saburo. He isn't the tallest of people, in fact, he's slightly below average. His skin is tanner than most of the guys his age, but at least it's all natural and doesn't look like he painted himself with a coat of orange. His eyes are a stand-out feature about him, they are a shade of yellow. Over the years, Saburo has taken care of his body to the highest degree, and is sure that he can rely on it when needed.
Genin Outfit - Saburo likes to be as simplistic and efficient as possible. This sometimes turns out weirdly for him, but most of the time he does just fine. His outfit is a little bit off the beaten path, but it serves its purpose. As a Genin, his outfit consists of very little. The first layer is nothing, that's right. All that Saburo has on the bottom layer is some wraps. He has wraps around his forearms and lower body. On the next layer up, Saburo has a red body-warmer, and some blue trousers. The body-warmer is there to look cool more than anything, but it comes in handy from time to time. His trousers are made of a durable material, and he rarely has the need to buy new ones. He wears the leaf village headband proudly, by tying it around his neck. Saburo also wears white gloves that act as weapons, but more on that later.
BLEMISHES / SCARS: N/ACOGNITION
Energetic - Saburo is incredibly energetic. Sometimes it seems as if he has unlimited amounts of motivation, which really isn't the case. Most of the time, Saburo seems to be up for doing anything, even the most menial of tasks. However, this also transfers over to the battlefield. A lot of the time, Saburo turns out to be the motivator. When people take a look at him and see him smiling while in the midst of battle, it gives them an urge to fight on. He doesn't do this on purpose, he just so happens to be a natural leader, which is something he hasn't realized yet.
Adventurous - Saburo is an adventurous individual. It's almost as all he ever does is look for trouble. He will seize any opportunity to venture out and travel as far away from home as he possibly can; he hates the boring life of Kirigakure. Most of the time, Saburo will end up getting his hopes up for nothing as a 'more capable' shinobi ends up taking the task. The way he sees it, having a steady place to live in is a curse, as it gives him no apparent reason to go out and see the world. His parents keep telling him that he will realise the error of his thinking when he grows older, but a 15 year old cannot be persuaded that easily.
Funny - Saburo is a funny guy. His friends think so too. So much so, that he himself knows how funny he is. It has always come naturally to him, and he doesn't try to be funny, he just is. His jokes can be a little offensive or harsh in some people's eyes, but most of the time they're really not that bad. His humorous side can carry on to the point where Saburo starts playing practical jokes. Most of the time, they are indeed incredibly harsh. One thing that Saburo takes care with is to make sure that his practical jokes do not hurt the person in any way, shape or form. Saburo can be a funny guy, and that is just one of the reasons that he is popular with other ninja.
Childish - Even his parents get annoyed by this one. Saburo is childish to say the least. He will not shut up until he gets his way. He is excited by little things, such as how cool the clouds in the sky are or how awesome that beat-boxing kid sounded. His parents see this as a problem, as they believe that he never takes anything seriously. This is false, and one shouldn't think otherwise simply because Saburo doesn't want to be a boring adult like the rest of the people in The Mist Village. Saburo likes his freedom. He loves to keep in touch with the child in him, he doesn't ever want to grow up. That's boring.
Energetic - Saburo can be often described as rude. Such a description wouldn't necessarily be wrong. Saburo knows this, and makes no conscious effort to change. He says what he means, and doesn't beat around the bush. A lot of people like this in him, while a lot hate this brutal honesty. Saburo thinks that everybody should say what they mean, no matter how bad it is perceived by the other person. The truth hurts, sure, but lies can get you to some-place much, much worse. Then again, Saburo can just be rude for the fun of it. He will play pranks or tell mean jokes just because he feels like it sometimes.
Stubborn - The most obvious negative trait of Saburo's is his stubbornness. Once he sets his mind of something, there is little anyone can do to change it. He tends to stop listening to any sort of rational argument, and just goes for whatever he thinks is best. He believes that his judgement is a lot better than most of the people out there. The way he sees it, he knows what's best for him, and people shouldn't stick their nose in someone else's business. As long as people keep to themselves, and don't start arguing about something they really shouldn't be arguing about, Saburo has no problem with them.

Type: Primary / Melee
Description:In brass or steel, knuckle dusters are a typical civillian weapon that are easy to hide and very effective in close quarters.

- 2 Packs of Kunai (4)
- 2 Packs of Shuriken (10)
- 1 Pack of Makibishi (20)Kunai (Throwing Knife)
Type: Secondary / Melee + Ranged
Special: 2 per Pack.
Description: This throwing knife is one of the common weapons of a ninja. It is often kept in a holster on the leg in a pouch attached to the belt. What makes it so versatile and universal is the fact the Kunai can be used in conjunction with explosive tags and other weapons to form deadly combos out of simple, easily accessible items.
Cost: 100 Ryo per Pack
Shuriken (Ninja Star)
Type: Secondary / Ranged
Special: 5 per Pack.
Description: A shuriken, like kunai, is one of the more basic weapons employed by ninja of all classes. They are sharpened, four-pronged metal stars, no more than a few inches long, and are extremely useful for throwing. Although small, they can be used to distract, or, if accurate enough, to kill. They have an open circle in the center, used for grabbing with a finger, to avoid cutting oneself, or to put thread through. The circle is also a benefit in aerodynamics, as it ensures more accurate trajectories.
Cost: 100 Ryo per Pack
Makibishi (Ground Spikes)
Type: Secondary / Ranged
Special: 20 per Pack.
Description: Makibishi are small, sharp objects that are mainly used to inhibit someone from walking in a certain direction or area, since they would injure the ninja's feet if they tried to walk over them. Although ineffective when used individually, they can severely cripple a whole enemy unit with appropriate use.
Cost: 200 Ryo per Pack
Type: Accessory / Self
Special: Has a range up to 100 meters.
Description: Similar to the radio in ease and effectiveness, the binoculars are sturdy and serve as a means to measure the distance to a target. Measuring no more than six inches in diameter, this square shaped device sports a durable carapace designed to withstand water damage and even the pressure of extreme altitudes.
Cost: 5,000 Ryo
