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.

Description: After striking the opponent with some sort of ink, the user will perform the Ram handseal. The ink will then soak into the object, whether it be fabric, solid, or even human skin.

Caught in the initial phase of preadolescence, Sae Ryun is not yet considered 'attractive' by the opposite sex; any shred of appeal he might have is immediately discouraged by the boy's inability to form expressions beyond apathy and annoyance. Fortunately, he does not suffer the misfortune of having his voice crack at the most inopportune moments, already settling into the comfortably low timber of a male several years his senior. Seeing very little action beyond the gates of Konoha to this point, and with Academy training being no substitute for the real thing, he currently lacks the scars that will inevitably define his profession.
✘| aspect; — cognition;
Due to limited (zero) attempts to communicate with his peers and fellow Leaf-nin, less than a handful of individuals have anything to say about Sae Ryun beyond the words "quiet" and "pensive"; he cannot refute these claims either. Keeping his own company over others when given a choice, he is nonetheless still capable of working well-enough in a group to accomplish an assigned objective. He rarely initiates conversation, and avoids engaging in 'small talk' like the plague. Further interaction on a much more regular basis is required to uncover what makes him 'tick', so to speak.
I still haven't settled on a particular Elemental release for my character, and all of my initial 1k exp have gone towards clan/universal/academy jutsu. Is it possible to leave the release part blank for now, and decide later on without having to pay 250 exp and buying it?
I read on the 'Mastery Perks' thread that if a specific tree has less than 3000 EXP worth of skills, it works by purchasing them in increments of 1/3 the total number of available techs. For a skill with multiple ranks, (i.e. 'Kai'), is the amount of EXP it contributes to the 3000 required equal to 625 (25+50+100+150+300), or just 300 by taking its highest rank (S) into account? Currently calculating the amount of EXP in tech worth for some clans, and wondering if I'd qualify for 1st tier mastery after distributing my 1k EXP where I want.
