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.
"But you can take it, he always needs escorting to places after what he did."
What did he do exactly? What made him so hated? It was all questions that didn’t have answers and, Yori knew for a fact she wouldn’t get any from someone here. Her plan was going to be simple, escort him around the village, and possibly defend him a few times. Nothing to advanced or basic and it helped, Yori practice her stealth skills. Nodding at the assistant she bided him farewell and exited the building. As it was still early morning, Yori had plenty of time to get to Mr. Yamamoto’s house and be there before he woke up so when he did, she would be waiting at his door.
“Hault, state your name and business.” The ANBU guard was certainly making his presence known she thought. He towered over the petit girl however it didn’t matter nor did the ANBU’s attempt to intimidate her work. Looking through his mask, her soft and soothing voice graced the ears of the man, “My name is, Hishida Yori, I come from the village, genin rank. I’m here to formally take on a mission.”
The guard knew what she was talking about and stepped to the side letting her in. As, Yori turned the knob of the door. Upon entering the Kusakage tower; ground floor, Yori was more than thrilled since today she would be going to accept a mission. Her beautiful appearance graced the room as she came in contact with the front doors of the building. Opening them she took a few steps in and gazed around, her angelic eyes scanned the room for a subordinate or someone who could point her within the right direction. It had been so long since, Yori had been here that she had a mental wipe of how to get to everywhere.
The first steps in…
Step by step, she was creeping closer and closer to the centre of the room. The black carpet and white walls were certainly odd and remaindered, Yori of the hospital. She found the assistant in the corner of the room and proceeded to walk towards her with a slow stride yet her movements looked like flowing water. Each movement was perfectly sinked with the next and as she made her way to the desk a hand raised from her left slide and as she was in arms reach from within the desk, Yori planted the arm on it and looked the assistant in the eyes or would have if her hair didn’t get in the way. Parting it to the side, Yori spoke again with that whisper of a voice, “I would like to take on the C-ranked mission: Client. I believe no one else has offered to escort Mr. Roji as of yet, and it is such a simple task is it not?” Giving a warm smile or semi-smile the beautiful maiden known as Hishida Yori waited for the answer. If it was a no, Yori would just offer to take on another mission however due to the girls pettiness and how fast she was—not to mention that she had an accurate senbon throw. Hishida Yori was perfect for the job or so she thought.
PROTECT THE CILENT! RANK: C DESCRIPTION: Ever since Roji Yamamoto made his wealth through slightly more shady means, he hasn't exactly been one of the most favoured people in the public eye. And because of that, each time he steps out of the house, he's bombarded with threats, rotten vegetables and fruit, and has one or twice been almost attacked on the streets. Being wealthy can't buy you popularity all of the time, but it can purchase a bodyguard if only for a temporary time. OBJECTIVE: Escort Roji throuought Kusa as he does day-to-day things, buy groceries, visit the park and any tasks that require him to leave his home. Protect him from people who might want to hurt him! MININUM SHINOBI: 1 PAY: 50 EXP and 1,000 Ryo.
BODY APPEARANCE: The female’s body is slender that has matured rather quickly, having a petit figure she has all the curves a women her age could ask for. Her face is soft as it is delicate, however is also gaunt. Her eyes, wide and light—almost white-blue, they show glimmers of emotion in certain situations. Always focused on the current situation, she has surprisingly long and dark lashes. Yori has been often mistaken sick because of her pale skin which could be compared to the smoothest of silk. Long, flowing hair that goes half way down her back yet that is silver in most light however it takes on a blue sheen when looked at in the right direction. Her hair is generally kept down unless on missions in which she ties it up in a high pony-tail.
APPAREL: Typically clad in a custom kimono, Yori hardly wears appropriate ninja attire. The entire thing is made from a fine quality silk designed to keep the wearer fairly warm in colder claimants which is done by the many layers of silk making the kimono hard to move in. Yet in, Yori’s case, she has worn this type of fabric long enough to move freely and be comfortable in it. The obi is rather long as it just ends below her knees, often blowing in the wind. Completing the ensemble are knee-high stockings and black leather boots and to place the cherry on top the cake; Yori, wears her forehead guard around her left arm with the symbol of Kusagakure facing backwards. [note: This outfit is not set in stone and will change from-time-to-time depending on where she is. However this is the base of it.]
BLEMISHES & SCARS: Her body and skin seem to be flawless, with no noticeable blemishes or scars. However the beautiful maiden does have a few tiny scratches and cuts along her arms and few on her palms yet they aren’t noticeable by anyone unless directly looking at those areas of her body up close.
PERSONALITY: Describing Yori’s personality is something only few can do. She truly can’t do it herself but if given the task she would say; collected, headstrong, determined classy… with a temper that could put any drama queen’s to shame. The young female doesn’t often like to get in and fights and would rather sooner smack someone to make them shut-up rather than continue an argument that gets out of hand. Thinking with her emotions, she doesn’t hold back on any occasion however her personal life—not that she has much of one is kept secret from all.
Being an extremely intelligent girl, she doesn’t mind spending time playing simple tactic games such as, Shogi (Japanese chess). This often reflects in her conversations with someone new as Yori seems to have the natural gift of perceiving as she can figure out what the persons like before getting to know them most of the time. She also seems to make witty comments when able and likes to be sarcastic when someone points out the logical reasoning to something.
Herself image is important and thus, Yori would never do anything nor say anything to tarnish it. That also means she will not let anyone else do the job for her. Normally people who attempt that end up with some sort of injury and a life lesson; never to mess in Hishida Yori’s affairs again. This personality trait has given her a little nickname from all the other kids, Shiro kiki (white demon princess).
ALIGNMENT: Chaotic neutral.
QUIRKS & TENDENCIES - Witty comments whenever possible. - Gets offended over a little joke about herself. - Tends to play Shogi a lot.
LIKES & DISLIKES: [note: Dislikes are colored while likes are colored.] - Little kids. - Winter season. - Flowers. - Fishing. - Spending time with family. - People who constantly state the obvious. - Bullies. - Heat. - Head strong people such as herself; there can only be one major personality a foot.
History: Being born into a lovely little fishing family, Hishida Yori was a gift from the heavens according to her kind and loving parents; Hishida Minoru and Hishida Misoka. Their plans for baby, Yori were to help her grow up into beautiful women both in physical appearance and personality. She would also be the successor to the family’s restaurant, ‘The Grilled Shark’.
Yori had shown signs of greatness as she was already talking full sentences at the age of three, she’d also be walking and running fluently months after her birthday. Still she was her father’s little princess and her mother’s tiny angel. Her hair was beautiful especially during the full moon where it reflected the rays on each strand, her eyes could make anyone calm just because they looked so peaceful. She was a true beauty even at a young age. This was also about the time when Yori started to read and watch her father and mother play Shogi each night before they went to bed.
At the age of five things started to change because, Yori had shown signs of greatness again however her parents weren’t expecting to find their lovely little daughter throwing a kunai she had found near the lake they lived nearby. It wasn’t, Minoru that was most impressed but, Yori’s mother, Misako as she saw this new talent first. Yori had been throwing this sharp knife at a tree for a good portion of the day and was hitting approximately the same area every time. To her amazement, Misako had ran other to her daughter and grabbed, Yori in her arms. Tears trickled down her face and onto little Yori’s head as she asked, “What’s wrong momma?”
In truth, Minoru’s father, Hishida Ryō was a leaf shinobi who died on active duty. The reason as to his death was unknown and although Yori’s mother was amazed that she had inherited her grandfathers skill (which had skipped her father’s generation), she was crying because, Minoru, after losing his father left the leaf village and moved to grass village to start a new and not get caught up within the shinobi world. He hated them, no he detested them because they could only say Hishida Ryō had died on a top-tier mission. Because of this Minoru moved to the village hidden within the grass which was at the time destroyed, he had helped rebuild the village and decided to stay in it because of the hard worked he helped with.
After a few years of discerns and rants to his wife, Minoru had finally agreed to let his most prized possession in the world become the thing he hated. He only hoped in time he would still love his daughter instead of detesting her existence. Thus at the age of nine, Yori was ushered into her first class of ninja academy.
Showing true signs of potential just like her father and mother predicated, Yori was near the top of her class. Often noted for her deadly accuracy with; kunai, senbon and shuriken alike, many thought she would make a fine shinobi when she was older. During her time at the academy also is the time where she started to mature into the beautiful butterfly that she is today, many of the kids often noted how good looking she was and girls were envious of her beauty often remarking about show pretty she was. This gave her a little nickname through her class and Hishida Yori would also now be known as the ‘Grass’s hidden beauty’. Although this flattered the girl many of times, she told—demeaned that they shouldn’t call her that.
Graduating the academy at the age of tweleve, Yori was placed into a squad with two other child prodigies of her generation. Izangi Kiba and his brother Izangi Hiro were both the hidden grass’s talents in every sense of the word. Both excelled at using their clans unique genjutsu style fighters and both were excellent suiton users. Because of, Kiba and his elder brother, Hiro who happened to become a interest of hers at the time taught, Yori how to use the suiton release and this is where her affinity to the water element came from even though it was already natural for her.
Now at the age of thirteen, Yori is completing missions and training with the two brothers occasionally to become a better shinobi. And even though their team disbanded due to Tenzen Daisuuke’s death, they all still remained friends and meet up occasionally to have some fun and visit, their late sensei’s grave. Minoru is still cooping with the fact that she has become a full-fledged ninja and is worried as always while Misoka is being her husband’s stability.
