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.
Somewhat rested, I didn't depart from my abode until hours after my body crashed. I had managed to lift the shell of myself off of the ground and once more pour into Kumogakure's shaken streets. The wreckage and aftermath scene of it all had already been ironed into my memory. So I was no more shocked at the crumbled appearance of the village than I was when I saw various signs gesturing towards the funeral of our dear Raikage.
( Atlas... )
The name of our leader was certainly going to be inscribed on the text of every historical book in Kumogakure. In a way though, Atlas was much more lucky than anyone else. He didn't have to worry about the village, attacks, or any other dastardly things the shinobi world carried. It was strange to say this, but I'm certain that he was at peace. And as I went forward to the very building he tarried in for so long, I made my way through the people to take a final look at his funeral picture.
( ... )
That guy definitely wasn't Atlas. First Areru's disappearance and now I had no clue of what happened to Atlas. And certainly this mystery Raikage wasn't helping the situation. Still, I whispered a silent prayer for the departed.
As I laid upon the couch, I felt the heat of the woman beside me as a comfort through the chilly nights. My hands moved over to whisper sweet nothings into her ear, only to see that her eyes were closed and had succumbed to a slumber. Even the dark of the night couldn't conceal her earthly beauty. And long ago I had made up my mind to keep her constant in my life. The golden object locked on my ring finger was evidence enough of my vows and commitment.
Sheepishly removing the covers back in an attempt to leave sleeping beauty the way she was, I slid from the bed silently. The rug beneath my foot provided all the comfort it could and I exited our bedroom and creaked down the hall. There was a door near the very end and I leaned against it before cracking it slightly ajar. Boldly, I peeked inside to see the form of a small creature nestled beneath pink blankets. There were times when the small girl unknowingly threw the blankets off of her in the night. In fear of her catching a cold, I made it my purpose to check on her nearly every night. But my worries were abolished, if only for tonight.
I closed the door of my little angel and crept towards the kitchen. A glass of water certainly would help me get back to sleep. However, in that moment the earth itself quaked and thrust in every which direction. The fabric of the house was being torn before my eyes and my instincts forced my feet to turn from the kitchen. But before I could get a step closer to my goals, I felt my footing disappear.
I had intended to save them. I had intended to protect them.
However, I never intended to slip between the fissures in the ground.
I leaped forward in fright with my heart racing in my chest. Between the heavy breaths, I noticed a vast difference in my surroundings from before. I was no longer at my home but elsewhere as the bland white walls stared back at me. A constant beep alerted me of the machines that sat beside the single bed I rested on as a clear liquid channeled through a tube penetrated one of my veins.
"A hospital?" I was correct in my assumption but that didn't make me feel any more content with this predicament. My memory was jumbled and my mind felt completely fuzzy as I pressed my head against my hand. Sharply, the last memory of being hit from behind projected itself.
"I was attacked... How long was I out for? I could have only been here for a fe-"
The calender to my right was akin to a mighty revelation. I had lost two years of my life supposedly. There had to be some sort of error. In such disbelief, I looked over to see carefully kept flowers along with several lengthy letters scrambled in a box. Each and everyone had been tied in a multi-colored ribbon and I could tell a certain amount of care had been used in making it look girly-like.
Pulling the IV from my wrist, I attempted to move from the bed and over to the box. Though weakened, I still found myself able to perform basic functions to my relief. It surprised me that no nurse had came in or the such. But I took the shouts and fast paced sound of footsteps through the hallways to be a sign of their active duty, not the danger I was unaware of.
My hands reached in the box and gently unwrapped a letter, almost as if to not ruin the delicateness that my wife had tendered the paper with. In it I saw a full days report of things going on and her daily life. She had kept me informed in my immobile state of everything that was going on. And at the end I felt myself pushing back waterworks.
'I love you! ~❥ Reru Nakashima'
The heart gently crafted on the paper was child-like, but that child-like action meant more to me than anything else. I opened another letter to see it withholding the information of another day, but tagged with the same embracing ending. However, in my love for her and surprise, I didn't even notice the amount of letters didn't sum up to two years. I lifted the box and tucked it beneath my arms. My legs sluggishly moved to the window and I prepared myself to be personally discharged, whether allowed or not.
Instead of seeing the peaceful village that I had faithfully served with children frolicking happily, I saw a state of bewilderment and chaos surging through the streets. It was no secret that something was definitely going wrong with the debris littered everywhere. But my fear neared its peak as I saw the damaged building of the Raikage. The building was a testament to Kumogakure's will. If that tower had been a victim, then I could only pray that the Raikage was at peace and personally handing whatever brought this destruction and mayhem.
Still, I realized I was in no health to offer my abilities or utilize my services. And deep deep down, I selfishly only wanted to find Areru in hopes that she wasn't a victim to any of this. I feared the worst, and in my fear I hobbled out of my room and through corridors. The only destination on my mind had been my apartment. And just like that I slipped through the cries and paranoia that ran rampant through the building and embarked on a journey of my own.
Little did I know, that I would have been better off in an eternal slumber.
The village was in a state of unbridled pain and devastation. Kumogakure's condition shocked me nearly as much as my coma, though it didn't fail to add weight to my already heavy heart. With weak shuffles across the earth, I made my way through the frightened crowd. For the most part, the attack that caused the village to crumble had ceased and many no longer hid in their homes. But now citizens emptied into the streets like rats. Their faces were tainted with sorrow and enough water poured from their eyes that a river could've cleanly ran through the vast streets. In this state of panic and mourning, I realized how either truly awful I really was. My heart reasoned and cloned the same sadness that was reciprocate by everyone. However, I was completely centered on finding Areru. I couldn't waste any of my strength crying or trying to comfort widows and now son-less mothers. I had a family of my own that needed me.
Despite my lack of cooperation in Kumogakure's sorrow, I constantly refuted another battle deep inside of my mind. When I had first gazed on the horrid scene, my mind jumped to Areru and her civic duty to Kumogakure. I was no more enticed to the fact that she was an ANBU now than the first time she informed me of the surprise. In fact, I loathed the idea more, knowing that the ANBU were meant to be on the front lines of Kumogakure if a battle had ever ensued to protect our lady nation.
( She's alive. I know it. )
Alive? Was I kidding myself? My mind played the superb role of making me shred my woeful heart of hope. However after every sharp incision that poked into my heart, I felt another ba-dump keep me rooted from insanity and listening to my better knowledge. Memories of her frequently training and desiring to make her eye attain the level of her kin popped up. The frail Areru that I once met managed to manifest beside her, convincing me of how she never summed up to other things in life. There had been an numerous amount of times that I thought I could cleave the woman in half with a single chop, playfully jabbing at her toothpick - like frame. But with the view of decimated concrete and rocks piled up on one another, the joke just lost any sort of humor I originally gave it.
The battle between my mind and heart intensified, growing so much that I crazily bit down on my own tongue. The pain receptors intensified and the mental battle faded as my pink muscle throbbed. The pain that was in my mouth was temporary and I would use every second to my benefit. It wasn't long before I had to ascend concrete stairs with an ivory railing. It was comforting to know that my home wasn't razed to the very ground in my absence. And another wave ran through me as I saw my front door in piece. Smiling, I reached forward and instinctively tried to open the door, not realizing that I didn't have the key needed. When it didn't budge, I patted myself down as if I had it in one of my pockets. But my spare had been in the clothing that a nurse had probably taken in the hospital.
Yet I didn't give up. Remembering that Areru and I kept a spare, I weakly kicked the welcome mat beneath my feet. Much to my expectations, I observed a silver key with an onyx handle laying idly beneath me. Kneeling, I reached for it and damn near expected myself to collapse. The fatigue that I admittedly ignored wouldn't go away and I felt it on the cusp of my heels. Quickly I lifted before it could overtake anymore of me and lodged the key in the silver lock. With a simple twist, I effortlessly pushed the door open and closed it behind me as the warmth of my home hit me.
It didn't take long for me to figure out she wasn't here. And it didn't take any longer for the cloud of despair to hover above me. The pain that kept my thoughts out of the situation swiftly numbed and the return of my mind’s sorcery hit me full throttle.
Unfortunate imaginative deaths were incessant.
And as I tried to convince myself it wasn't so, my mind only denied me the peace I eagerly sought. No longer able to stand and unsure of everything, I didn't even make it to the couch.
I collapsed. I collapsed on the rug below and didn't even dare fight the empowered fatigue.

Their first meeting occurred during a leisure rainy day beneath the roof of a bus stop. Interested in her, Kaeor forced a conversation in order to figure out more about her. Eventually, this led to them keeping in contact and forging a worthwhile bond. The ensuing days were spent full of nights with Areru absent from her clan's compound. It was undeniable to say a certain romanticism and connection grew through their frequent meetings.
Months later, against the wishes of her elder siblings, she moved in permanently with Kaeor. Everything was heavenly until Kaeor dug up news of Areru's disease that she withheld from him. Despite her disbelief of a cure, Kaeor made it a goal to figure out how to eradicate her mother's hereditary disease that would force Areru's death before she could reach her 30s.
After a year without her, he returned to Kumogakure as an unstable shell of who he once was but also with the very cure she needed. His mental health had been shaken up, but that was a fair trade as long as Areru had her physical health. Following the rejuvenation of her health, the two became engaged.
Years into the relationship, Areru revealed that of the possible return of her illness. Fortunately after a doctor's visit, it was revealed that her illness hadn't revived. Instead, Areru had become pregnant with Kaeor's heir. The two lived happily until one day out on the job, Kaeor had been knocked into a coma.
Upon his ensuing awakening, Kaeor received the grim news that after a ANBU mission gone wrong, Areru nor his future daughter still lives.
A rather mysterious Uchiha that possessed the legendary Hiraishin techniques. Soratsu needed that of promising ninja in his future plan for war and Kaeor was somewhat of an early possibility. After a haughty and small battle along a pier, Soratsu enlisted Kaeor's aide. Though Kaeor was no frequent combatant, Soratsu wished to change that and with the promise of enough ryo to buy the medical operation needed for Areru, he definitely did.
Over the time, Soratsu became more than just an ally to Kaeor, but also that of a close friend.
The relationship created between the two was forged around the same time Kaeor met Soratsu. The three met each other on the pier and somehow became integral in Soratsu's future plans. Somehow, the Uchiha convinced the two to join him.
While at first the two were standoffish, conversation eventually opened up between them seeing they were both reluctantly part of Soratsu's operations. Later on, Kaeor figured out that Blanche was somewhat of a medical prodigy. After getting the ryo needed from Soratsu and completing his plans, Blanche agreed to Kaeor's wishes for her to lead the operation to heal Areru.
Since then, Kaeor's always placed a bit more trust in her than usual.

Kumogakure no Sato.
kumo is built within a range of endlessly tall mountains, literally hidden in the clouds. as such, it is constantly under threat of a thunderstorm that both abuses the village and gives its occupants natural energy.
Kirigakure no Sato.
kiri is located on an island. this naturally grants the country a great defense against outside threats, to the point they seem impenetrable. the greatest conflict seems to come from within.

this moniker is commonly used when on foreign missions or conversing with others that can't be trusted. though the change of a name doesn't hamper recognition of him visually, it does give him extra time to work with.

APPEARANCE + APPAREL:
The appearance of the shinobi is something that's pretty basic on a human level. His body is toned and physically fit from the exercises and different activities he goes through as a marine. Kaeor's hair is a confusing blend of a dark purple and seafloor blue. The strands are also knotted onto the left side of his hair with particular hair accessories. It's hard to pinpoint of which hue it truly is, so he constantly refers to it as a mixture of both. The eyes of the shinobi voice that of a strong crimson color signifying rage, strength, power, and compassion. Each quality he believes is equal to the rest and higher than no other quality in the family. A single horizontal discoloration runs across the bridge of his nose. It's a birthmark that he has had ever since he was a kid passed on from both of his parents. Finally, he's no stranger to ink. He has assorted tribal tattoos decorating his shoulders and his chest. On his right shoulder there's some strange sort of tribal tattoo that forms from the apex of his shoulder to his elbow and on his left shoulder there's a wave of pink petals that trail along his back. There's also a tattoo around his right eye but it's typically covered by his hair.
Kaeor's attire is rather elegant and doesn't constrict any sort of movement. Below everything he tapes himself with that of white bandages around the lower part of his chest and forearms. He considers it a "style" thing and does it quite frequently. Above that he dons a rather peaceful red kimono with art of flowers on the lower piece of the fabric. It doesn't stop there as a somewhat flexible assortment is worn beneath the kimono on his back in appearance of a brace, it forms a black choker around his neck and trails off beneath the kimono. His leggings are of a dusty grey color and his arms are equipped with that of sleeve fitting fingerless black gloves that take up the expanse of his forearm. Last but not least, he dons lightweight black boots.
Kaeor's personality on the exterior is reminiscent of someone with emotional scars that just wants to be left alone. Yet beneath his tough shell, he has a slew of traits that define him as an individual. For one, he's extremely intelligent. He reacts logically to most situations in a steadfast manner and shrewdly uses his wits when he comes into any sort of obstacle. Simultaneously he's courageous and decisive, making him a very powerful leader no matter the location. He's an ally that just about anyone would benefit from having on their side. Not to mention that he's rather cunning and observant, always giving himself the time to learn and understand something foreign instead of rendering it valueless - at most times at least.
On the gloomy side, he also hosts a fair amount of traits that contribute to his sinister core. The fact that he's mainly pretty distant from others fuel his "lone wolf" concept. He's never been someone to seek out friends for reasons such as emotions or emptiness. There's always some sort of twisted and unknown method to his madness. Such a trait has brewed arrogance in his persona and has made him manipulative of others to certain extents. He can certainly be apathetic when it comes to doing tasks for reasons beyond his own and manages to be quite sarcastic around unwanted company.
