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.
COTM: Uchiha Ryusuke played by Ryusuke Sample. Well aside from organizing a small shinobi unit and coordinating the members movements like a jounin instructor he's just as much fun to rp with. That and his open nature is perfect for sennen goroshis. Also visciously prolific poster,, even though we joined within a few days of eachother he's already seeming like he's been here for a while.
SOTM: Axcel. on't klnow much that went on when the site got hacked but he/she helped to keep people informed about what was going and did an awesome all-round job.
After tending to Ryūsuke, Kiniro noticed that she had lost track of the deer and cursed as she came to a sudden halt, rolling onto the floor and stopping in a semi-crouched position. Her eyes scanned the bushes surrounding her and for some reason it was getting harder and harder to see as a mist rolled over her and surrounded her from all sides. She stood up lifting an eybrow wondering what was going on and wasn’t sure if it was one of her own who had done this. She pulled her chokuto free as she walked forward cautiously and kept herself ready for any attacks that sprung out of the dense mist.
She walked further forward before relaxing somewhat and realized that she wasn’t stalking the deer anymore. She was in fact lost. Those two had probably concocted a scheme to keep her away from the deer while they ate. She balled her fist tight and struck a thin tree trunk. She wouldn’t let them get the better of her as she lazily did a set of kata,
“Bunshin no jutsu.” An exact replica popped out of the thin air beside her and the usual clouds surrounding the technique were obscured.she didn’t mind as she waved the clone to go west while she proceeded north. She’d find them no matter what it took. TAGGED » Goes here NOTES » Goes here
Kiniro nodded excitedly to the stranger with a mouthful of rice as she motioned to the left overs, wondering if he’d go for them or whether she should have just gobbled them up before hand. As Ryūsuke stomach grumbled she hardly felt any guilt as she leaned back and burped, rubbing her stomach and grinning, her gargantuan appetite satisfied for the time being.
“Oh, I feel pregnant.” She managed to say as she broke a small nearby twig and fashioned it into a makeshift tooth pick. As she was about to burp again something caught Ryūsuke’s attention and as she sat forward to ask about it he shushed her with a shake of his hand as he peered into the forest. Turning her head she immediately saw what had interested her and all feelings of fullness left her as she eyed the plump creature casually grazing within the confines of the shrubs. She licked her lips quickly and before she could do anything else Ryūsuke managed to scare the future meal into action, its body retreating further away from them. She immediately stood up eying Ryūsuke visciously as he gave chase. He’d given away any chance they’d have of catching the beast and the roast she had already imagined was now just a shattered dream. She burst forward following directly behind Ryūsuke, hoping the other hadn’t strayed too far behind. She immediately grabbed her chokuto from her back as she gained on Ryūsuke, one goal in mind as she pointed the blunt sheath forward and used shunpo to make up the remaining distance and appearing behind Ryūsuke.
“You gave it a headstart! Sennen Goroshi!” She plunged the back end of her sheath into Ryūsuke’s nether region hoping to propel him forward and make up for the advantage he’d given it. Although unconventional if it struck home he should gain enough speed to land far in front of it and assist in surrounding it. She wanted him to know that she too could come up with tactics to benefit them both.
Kiniro needed no more explaination as she caught all of the goodies Ryūsuke had kept hidden away. How was he able to stash this much food away and still be able to move around she wondered. Setting herself into a comfortable position at the base against the trunk of the tree she laid out the spread in front of her, paying little attention to the meeting that Ryūsuke had dashed off to attend. He couldn’t expect her to follow after dropping all this and while she was curious as to who the newcomer was she was more interested in the texture and flavor of each item before. Slowly she tasted each one, savoring the taste for a few moments before gobbling it down. While they weren’t restaurant quality they were still good if a little lukewarm.
By the time Ryūsuke had returned she had eaten about 90% of what he had left her and was idly toying with some rice balls by juggling them into her mouth. She smiled as he approached and lifted a finger to bring attention to her next trick as she simultaneously lobbed three small rice balls into the air, catching and chewing each as they came down with swift dexterity.
“Pfffty gwwwd hhhhh?” she mumbled through the mass of rice in her mouth. Her cheeks had expanded and become rounded as she quickly processed the food and relieved her jaw of the strenuous exercise. “My record is 8 but I didn’t want to finish them all so I left you some.” She pushed a small portion towards him while she licked her fingers and thanked him for the meal.
It was an awkwardly tense moment as she hurled her jutsu at the fire. She noticed that the distinctive red of the sharingan had disappeared from his eye. She didn’t say anything though and just continued on as though nothing happened, the same unhealthy pattern she’d been practicing as long as she could remember. It wasn’t something she would ever admit but it put her at ease and the smile she had a moment ago widened unconsciously. Even though Ryūsuke hadn’t noticed it, when she threw her Matoudai Zeusu it hadn’t even connected at full power and she had fumbled a lot of the kata. This time though she would not fail and easily and gracefully performed her hand signs before bellowing,
“Raiton: Matoudai Zeusu!” At the same time Ryūsuke’s clone was descending downwards into the clearing and her eyes followed it and then she flung her arm forward and let the length of light fly through the air. Its path was flatter than before and thrown with much more power than its predecessor as it landed just a moment before the clone and spread its shocking circular mass around it, jolting the clone from every direction as it towered towards the sky in a regal yet lethal manner.
A slight breeze was blown their way from the explosion and Kiniro relished it, feeling that nature was reeling back at her power. She turned to Ryūsuke and gave a firm thumbs up and a toothy grin to match it. He was one of the few people she would share her training and combat endeavors with and as a result he knew a lot of her jutsu and how proud she was to have them given her humble beginnings. All this shouting and kata had really worked up her adrenaline and she was anxious to know what Ryūsuke had planned next. Hopefully something more exciting than what they’d already done as she liked to keep herself guessing and alert. A property she had translated into a daily routine to match the uncertainty of real combat.
So he was just playing a part in the training? She relaxed the hand that had previously gripped her chokuto and let herself lean against the tree’s wide trunk as she looked back down to the flames. She’d never gotten used to seeing a sharingan, it made her feel uncomfortable for some reason, like it was peering at her deepest darkest secrets with ease.
She could never look at Ryūsuke straight in the eye for long periods when he had that dojutsu activated, a fact that she found even more repulsive. He was an ally and his clan was from her village but it just seemed weird for some reason. She wasn’t sure whether it was the color of technique but ever since she had first seen it on him she felt kind of empty. She had known that it was his clan’s bloodline limit but it made her feel like there was a side of him she didn’t know and could never understand. In a way she envied his sharingan and the ease it made for learning new things and ideas. Maybe that was the real reason behind her resentment of it but whatever it was it made her damn uncomfortable so when Ryūsuke asked to see one of her raiton jutsu’s she aggressively and excitedly obliged, leaping several branches higher than him as she extended a hand,
“Now watch carefully, I’m not gonna do this twice. Matoudai Zeusu!” A long and narrow bolt of white lightning materialized in the palm of her right hand and she smiled briefly as she weighed it up before looking into the distance and hurling the javelin like object to the centre of the fire they had created. Unlike her clone, this jutsu had an immediate effect, making a high vertical cylindrical column about 10 meters in diameter that was constantly being shocked as the center were a lightning storm. “How’s that for shock value?”
It was a fearsome display of fire and Kiniro backed away several steps from the heat. She heard him say something and then disappear but wasn’t sure what as she returned her attention to the blazing inferno. Being caught in the middle of such a maneuver was almost fatal and while she had a lot of fun controlling her clone she wondered how she would implement it in the field. This wasn’t the kind of high pressure situation that they would encounter and there was seldom any training that could fully prepare anyone for what lay ahead.
She waited a few more moments before leaping up into a nearby branch and scouting around for Ryūsuke. Where had he disappeared to so suddenly. She moved along the edge of the blazing area, jumping from branch to branch as she scanned the field below and the trees on the opposite side. That was when she saw him high up in a tree on the opposite side of the small clearing. There was no way she could shout and be heard from this distance and she watched as he drew his hooked blades. What was he doing now, she wondered before dropping to a lower branch and then to the forest floor. As soon as she touched it she broke into a sprint, veering dangerously close to the edge of the fire as she circled around the clearing and stopped under Ryūsuke’s tree. Taking a moment to catch her breath she used her shunpo to quickly scale the lower branches until she was a few feet below Ryūsuke.
“What are you doing?” she shouted above the sound of the fire. Aside from the fact that they had collaborated in that last move there really was no need for him to draw his edged weapons, unless there was an enemy nearby which made Kiniro put a hand on her own chokuto that was strapped across her back. She waited for a few moments, looking around suspiciously and ready to react to any impending threats.
She grumbled, not totally satisfied with the mission parameters but knew she’d already committed herself to the cause already. Even though they were close she and Ryūsuke had almost opposite views on things like this. Where he would have a fierce determination to prove the odds wrong she would be taking bets on how badly they’d fail. It was an awkward relationship but one that worked. It would be better with the jonin instructor though he or she would be able to bail them out if things got too sour. Or so she hoped.
Dragging her mind back from its moment of daydreaming she followed a little behind Ryūsuke as he led her to a small opening. He didn’t waste any time as he quickly and methodically performed his hand seals. She’d always been envious of this but her mind was slapped back to reality once more as he chanted his jutsu. It filled his target area with a thick coat of oil. She gulped for a moment before hesitantly turning to Ryūsuke,
“You, should warn me before doing something like that. Not that this is especially dangerous or anything. No ever died from accidentally lighting one of these. What if I’d panicked and unleashed something?” She was somewhat reluctant to move forward and complete the move as he’d requested. She’d done something similar before but this was different. It was like playing with matches. For some reason though, that analogy stirred a childish misdemeanor within her as she considered how much fun it would be to light this place up, let alone perform something like this in combat. And she had a marvelous scheme for this particular moment. She grinned widely as she looked at Ryūsuke. “Time to get involved then isn’t it.” She said mysteriously before making her own hand seals in a slower more deliberate manner than Ryūsuke.
Denkou Bunshin no Jutsu.” She said calmly and an electric copy of herself materialized beside her, “The more the merrier?” The clone quickly ran backwards and away from the area of effect before running forward at full speed and leaping into the air a gleeful smile on its face before landing smack in the middle of Ryūsuke’s technique. For a moment nothing happened and then a sharp cracking sound filled the air before setting all the flammable liquid alight. Kiniro shielded her eyes from the sudden blast, quite satisfied with her contribution.

“B rank? Hold on a second there. Aren’t B ranked missions a little difficult for Genin? We could be killed before the mission even begins.” She commented casually. She wasn’t adept at the tactical use of her own opinions and most people viewed it as a bad thing but she was a realist and the fact of the matter was that B ranked missions were B ranked for a reason. Even with the two of them, their odds against anyone they met on such missions would be dire at the most. And Ryūsuke wanted her help. This made her smile a bit inside. Guess that wasn’t a surprise but it still didn’t make her feel any better about what he was saying.
“Besides, aren’t tactics and stuff made by a squad leader or a higher ranked ninja? Wait, you’ve got some strategies in mind don’t you? You’re gonna get us killed.” She added at the end with a cheeky glare. She didn’t feel she was being overly negative but there was little motivation for her to go out on such a s=risky mission with another genin. Well, he wasn’t another genin, it was Ryūsuke, but the danger was the same. She was a little interested in what he had planned. He wouldn’t have called her out here if he wasn’t fairly confident in his own abilities and hers for that matter. Still.
She sighed and used her left hand to scratch the back of her head lazily as she considered other options but one thing caught her attention.
“Anything?” She narrowed her eyes trying to see if he was bluffing, “Are you sure about that? Too late you can’t take it back.” The promise of reward for messing around with Ryūsuke today would be greater than she had imagined and all thoughts of B ranked missions and difficult opponents floated out of her mind as she planned out her dinner spread.
“Late?” She looked around, “Looks like you haven’t started yet. How could I be late. Besides you know I can’t do anything if my mind is filled with thoughts of food. Actually it’s always like that, but you know what I mean.” She said matter-of-factly as she watched him rise from his semi-recumbent posture. She put her hands on her hips as his gaze fell to the area behind her. They were supposed to work on some basic tactics today and Ryūsuke seemed a little intent on letting her know that she was late. She simply shrugged, knowing that she had chosen to delay her arrival and she wasn’t completely sure what he wanted her to do about it so she simply muttered a silent apology as she turned to look around.
They were deep within the forest and were unlikely to encounter anyone here, a factor that Ryūsuke had no doubt taken into consideration when taking this location into consideration.
“So, what are we going to do today. I was quite excited to come today but this is hardly the kind of activity I imagined doing after all this time. You should have seriously considered joining me for lunch. It was delicious.” She said making yummy noises and gently rubbing her stomach. Personally she hadn’t done much training herself in the last few months and had tried her best to avoid missions of any kind while she literally ate and slept everyday. This would be a refreshing change of locale and scenery, hopefully it wouldn’t be too strenuous as she was already considering how much time it was till supper.
The area around the restaurant was quiet and the only sound that could be heard was the dulled clanging of wooden chosticks as they frantically cleared plate after plate of food. Some stood in horror, others looked on in amazement but the same thought was running through everyone’s mind. Why was this lithe girl able to eat so much? It was beyond human and the cooks were struggling to keep pace but were hardly bothered as she was a regular here and they seemed to love the challenge.
Fifteen minutes would pass before Kiniro would put down her 13 bowl of egg sauce over rice with a side of miso soup. Even though it was a breakfast meal Kiniro indulged it at any time during the day and never felt quite right without having tasted its distinctive flavor. Putting her two chopsticks together she clapped her hands firmly against eachother and burped,
“Thank you for the food.” She promptly stood up and heard the shop owner yell,
“Come back again Kiniro-chan!” She waved at him and smiled as she skipped out the shop, lightheartedly as if she hadn’t just ingested massive amounts of rice and egg. She smiled at a few people as she looked around, already knowing she was late for her meet with Ryusuke, but she couldn’t do anything on an empty stomach and he knew that. He was probably waiting patiently at their designated spot. After the brief self assurance that her delay was justified she made a beeline for the large gates of the village and leapt into a slow jog as she passed beneath it’s arching mouth, taking one last look at the looming mountain of legendary ninja leaders before heading out. It was as much a ritual as eating and no matter how badly she felt about her life before in this village she had a deep respect for those who laid their lives to protect it. Even the little street kid was a part of this village.
Leaping up into some nearby branches she headed for the rendezvous point with a little more haste as she felt the dry hard wood on her hands as she swung from branch to branch before eventually spotting the dark red tincture of Ryusuke’s head. When she was still about a hundred yards away she increased her speed, adjusting herself so she was directly in line with him as leapt into the air in front of him,
“RYUSUKE!!!” She yelled at the top of her voice with much less affection than was intended. She was headed straight for him and would probably knock him over if he didn’t evade her overzealous greeting. It was good to see him again.
Kawarimi no Jutsu (Body Replacement Technique) Rank: E Type: Supplementary / Ninjutsu Range: 0 - 5 meters Special: Switch is near-instantaneous. When first learned, Kawarimi can only be used once per thread, plus one more each time retrained. Can only be used once per turn, regardless of retraining.. Requires the user to switch with objects equal or smaller in size; cannot switch with other living people or animals. Description: This jutsu lets the user quickly switch places with another nearby object, such as a plant (normally a section of a log), an animal, the moment an attack hits. This creates an optical illusion, making the enemy think the attack was successful. The user can then use this confusion to escape or launch a counter-attack - i.e. exploding tags can be attached to the replacement for an added surprise. Domain: Academy Student Ninjutsu.
Henge no Jutsu (Transformation Technique) Rank: E Type: Supplementary / Ninjutsu Range: Self Special: Allows the user to transform into any person, object or animal of normal/small/miniature size.

Bunshin no Jutsu (Clone Technique) Rank: E Type: Supplementary / Ninjutsu Range: Self Special: Allows the user to create a clone without substance that resembles the user in every way, including retaining its movement speed. Clones cannot mold chakra nor perform jutsu, nor can they harm. Up to one clone can be made, plus one more each time retrained. Description: Bunshin no Jutsu is a Ninjutsu technique which every ninja learns at the Ninja Academy. The Bunshin technique creates a copy of the ninja without substance that, although easily seen through by those with doujutsu, can fool the normal eye easily. Why? Simply because although without substance, the copy resembles the ninja in every way. This clone can function as a distraction or as means to confuse one's opponent, though no real damage can be done by it. Finally, as soon the Bunshin gets attacked or comes into contact with an opponent, it will disperse. Domain: Academy Student Ninjutsu.
Kakuremino no Jutsu (Magic Cloak of Invisibility Technique) Rank: E Type: Supplementary / Ninjutsu Range: Self Special: No other technique may be used while creeping.

Can be held as long as the user's chakra reserves allow it. Special: Disables all forms of small electronics touched for the remainder of the user’s presence within the area/thread. Description: A highly strategic raiton jutsu, the Plasma Ball allows the user to create a thick sphere of Raiton around their body, able to shock anyone that comes in contact with it immediately. Domain: Raiton
Hiraishin Kiru (Human Lightning Rod) Rank: D Type: Supplementary / Raiton Ninjutsu Range: Touch Special: Lightning damage is enhanced by a single rank. Once the victim is struck by lightning, the user is required to re-apply the effects. If the victim is not struck by lightning before they leave the given battle thread, the effects are neutralized and the jutsu must be reapplied. Description: As the name implies, this simple technique allows the user to alter their internal electric charge temporarily, so that all Raiton chakra subsequently made by the user (as well as natural lightning!) is more susceptible to strike the victim, as well as damage them higher than normal. This alteration usually occurs during some form of contact, where the user’s charged appendage can simple tough, strike or graze the victim and quickly place the effects on them. Domain: Raiton.
Mekurumeku (Blinding Flash) Rank: D Type: Supplementary / Raiton Ninjutsu Range: 0 -1 0 meters Special: For RP purposes outside of battle, this can be used at lower intensities to light up dark areas. Description: A basic yet effective Raiton technique, the user focuses a bit of chakra all over their body, letting the lightning gather and then quickly exploding, effectively providing a blinding light that leaves all within the range blind. Useful for disorientation and quick get-aways. Domain: Raiton.
Denkou Bunshin no Jutsu (Shocking Clone Technique) Rank: C Type: Offensive / Raiton Ninjutsu Range: See special! Special: Clone speed matches that of the user, and can go anywhere the user can. Up to one clone can be made at a time, plus one more each time retrained. Explosion range covers 5 meters. Description: With this technique, the Raiton user is able to call upon aid from a perfect copy of themselves. Comprised purely of lightning, this clone retains the user movement speed and can share linked mental judgement. Best of all, due to its flowing essence, many solid attacks pass through the clone, shocking instead whatever was used to strike them. Finally, when defeated, the clone explodes into a storm of lightning that aims to take over the nearest opponent available, taking over their body whole as it is shocked. Domain: Raiton.
Danpen Inazuma (Shooting Thunder) Rank: C Type: Offensive / Raiton Ninjutsu Range: 0 - 5 meters Special: Does not require handseals. Can be used once per turn, plus one more each time retrained. Description: Meant more as a reactionary technique than a main avenue of offense, this jutsu allows the user to essentially shoot out small lightning bolts from a free hand to anyone within five meters. This requires no seals to conjure, and can be shot out from one’s appendage during the most heated of combat. The damage is light, less than a Raikyuu, and the bolts shoot off in a relatively straight line, at rapid speeds. Domain: Raiton.
Matoudai Zeusu (Strike of Zeus) Rank: C Type: Offensive / Raiton Ninjutsu Range: 0 - 10 meters Special: The bolt is about as long as a regular katana, and glows an intense deep blue. If the javelin pierces the victim, they will feel additionally ‘burn/shock’ damage because the bolt acts as concentrated beacon of lightning. Each time retrained, the user adds 5 extra meters to their range. Description: Named after the fabled imaginary leader of the sky and thunder, this technique allows the user to feel like Zeus himself as they summon a tight bolt of electricity in their hand, similar to a javelin, so that they could throw it with appeasing accuracy. The bolt will move through the sky faster than most projectiles, and carries deadly accuracy in the right hands. Upon making contact with the target, it immediately bursts into a vertical cylinder storm that surrounds the victim and delivers a plethora of constant shock damage. Domain: Raiton.
Shunpo (Flashing Light Steps) Rank: D Type: Supplementary / Taijutsu / High-Speed Movement Range: 0 - 5 meters Consumption: Low Special: Shunpo is much like Shunshin, a forward-moving high-speed technique that transports the user across a short space in the blink of an eye. When used, the user will rush almost instantly to wherever they are facing. The user can Shunpo once per thread, plus once more each time retrained. One cannot attack or perform techniques during Shunpo. Description: Shunpo, a Taijutsu master's response to the Body Flicker Technique, relies solely on the user's ability to harness their inner ki and gain enough stamina to withstand the sudden strain imposed on one's legs. However, once properly trained, the Taijutsu Type will find their legs moving at speeds unknown to common man, to the point most would make the foolish mistake of assuming one is using Shunshin. However, unlike that chakra inspired run, Shunpo is pure stamina and movement skill, allowing for tighter, quicker, and more reactionary movements essential for someone that relies on movement. Although Shunpo itself moves in a single line, its many variations is what makes it so lethal. Domain: Shunpo - Universal Taijutsu.
Sennen Goroshi (One Thousand Years of Death) Rank: E Type: Offensive / Taijutsu Range: 0 - 5 meters Special: Anal launch extends up to 5 meters, plus 1 one more each time retrained. Description: Though it is often referenced to as an "Ancient Supreme Technique", Sennen Goroshi serves more as an insulting shock technique rather than a skilled Taijutsu technique. The ninja forms their hands into the seal of the tiger, and then jabs their fingers into the nether regions of their target. The result is shocking violation of the targets sanctity and often their launching in the air to stop the awkward feeling. Domain: Universal Taijutsu.
Sayonara Rorru! (Do a Barrel Roll!) Rank: C Type: Offensive / Taijutsu Range: 0 - 5 meters Special: Barrel roll burst extends 5 meters, and can be used one per thread, plus one more each time retrained. Description: As its name implies, the user will suddenly enter barre-roll form, gripping their shins and ankles as they tuck them in, forming a human ball. In this form, chakra is unconsciously powering the roll, making their movement just as fast and graceful as if they were running. Useful for evasion, or when needing to look silly. Domain: Universal Taijutsu.
Kaiten Kakatou Otoshi (Spinning Heel Drop) Rank: C Type: Offensive / Taijutsu Range: 0 - 5 meters Special: If kick connects with head, the victim will most likely be stunned for half turn. Normally the user spins once before descending, but each time retrained, an additional spin is added, which adds more power and thus more stunning capabilities - equal to 1/2 a turn of stun added each time. Description: A very basic but effective taijutsu attack, the Kaiten involves the user's leg in a reverse downward kick. After launching themselves into the air and begin to somersault, the user gains momentum within the chosen striking limb and come spinning down, laying their heels into the target's shoulders and head. Domain: Universal Taijutsu.

✿Height: 5ft 10in ✿Weight: 125lbs ✿Apparel: Kiniro wears a black halter top with matching track pants and the normal ankle high ninja boots for footwear. Underneath her top she always has skin tight white under shirt to prevent any prying eyes from getting excited.

Also adding to her general black clothed theme are her trademark cycler arm warmers, both black and beginning at the start of her biceps and ending in a cone shape about an inch below her knuckles. ✿Body Appearance: Kiniro is a lithe and athletic young girl with a slender frame. Her hair is a deep shade of purple and her face is flanked with two identically cut bangs that she maintains ruthlessly.

✿Personality: Kiniro is a free spirited individual and will emphasize this fact time and time again with her wild actions and willingness to try anything new. She is very upfront and open with people, often making comments that may seem aggressive or hurtful but never with any foul intent. She also has a fairly foul imagination and always thinks the worst of a situation before taking anything into consideration
She is fairly intelligent and witty, especially since she had no education whatsoever growing up, being raised on the streets and in the forests around Konoha. She also eats massive amounts of food even though she has a slim figure and has been seen to consume plate after plate of food one after the other for an extended period. Despite being laid back and playful she can become serious when the situation calls for it and takes no reservations when fighting, especially when those in her village or those she cares about are in danger. ✿Alignment: Chaotic Good ✿Allegiance: Konohagakure no sato & Hi no kuni ✿Quirks & Tendencies:
Pessimist: She will always map out the worst scenario possible for certain events and has acquired a penchant for choosing the most random and often inappropriate times to make her comments.
Joker: Kiniro loves a good joke and loves to laugh, always making sure to overdo her reactions but even when she doesn't she will throw her head back in raucous laughter and needs a total time out when laughing as she rolls on the floor and grabs her aching stomach from the effort.
Risk taker: She enjoys the thrill of taking risks in dangerous situations and often lacks the common sense to stand back and think about things when she gets excited, more interested in the fun to come than the dangers involved.
