General appearance:
From a single glance alone, Shin most certainly does not seem like the type of person who would possess any kind of skill or even worth enough to become a shinobi. In fact simply by looking at him, many describe the young man as "unsettling" or "creepy" upon first glance. And that really, is exactly how he wants you to feel. Why many feel that way is rather easy to see just from that first glance. A tall young man, looking to be in his late twenties. Unusual silver hair, a lithe build so much so that parts of his body almost appear skeletal in nature, skin ever so cool to the touch no matter his current location. And most importantly the ever present grin he wears on his face, never fading in public and even rarely so when alone. A most notable fact on top of this, is this young man's eyes, or rather the lack of them. They are there of course, everyone needs them to see after all, but his eyelids remain almost entirely closed. Allowing Shin to see perfectly fine, but never allowing anyone to see his eyes unless he wishes it so. It is from this, that many always assume that he is up to something, which isn't entirely wrong at all. It is rumoured that any that have seen this experienced shinobi's eyes, have died rather quickly after. Shin, has never confirmed nor denied this, content to let the rumours roam about the village like wildfire.

Regarding the way in which he moves, Shin's typical stance is most often highly relaxed. Like a laid-back animal content with it's existence, this alone occasionally making him seem as if he is bored with the world around him. Or that he takes nothing seriously. Even so, while his stance is relaxed, most of the steps he takes are purposeful even graceful at times, there to accomplish a purpose and anyone with a keen enough eye for body language will notice this. He doesn't command attention when entering a room, not naturally anyhow. In fact, without making a display of it, Shin rarely draws that much attention to himself. The few that do look, often very quickly look away, if from that unsettling nature he possess or his physical appearance alone. No one is entirely sure and no one typically bothers to try and figure out why either. Which is fine with him really. His vocal tone often confuses many a person on top of how carelessly he seems to move about. Often times his tone is light, polite and yet oddly mocking at the same time. While if just listening in casually, many may assume him to be an upbeat sort of person, this is simply what he permits the world to see. That same tone can become darker and deep with the correct emotional trigger, and switch the young man from sounding friendly - if a little strange. To someone you simply do not want to converse with at all. When speaking to those he dislikes, or simply people who end up irritating or boring this man, his tone will change, just slightly. Words like the cutting edge of a blade and yet, he still wears a smile. Always mocking, always fooling.

His way of dress can sometimes be just as strange as the man himself. Ranging from a very form fitting all black attire for any kind of mission that requires an extreme amount of focus and skill. To lose, airy clothing that allows Shin both free movement and a certain level of comfort that you simply do not have for the attire many shinobi wear on 'serious' assignments. When travelling, he is well known to wear a free flowing cape around his neck, and something just a tad similar within the winter months. But only when absolutely necessary, as anything that restricts his movement in any way, isn't something Shin will willing wear unless the weather demands it. Shin never has, and never will wear any kind of accessories atop his clothing, unless it is something that will aid him in combat that he can live with. Generally this however means you will never see him with a headband unlike many other shinobi, or anything of a similar sort either. In his down time however, when wandering about the village, he can be spotted wearing a thin necklace, with a small light blue sphere hanging delicately off of the chain. Shin claims this is a memento of his mother's, but no one is entirely sure and any that have tried to ask have never gotten a proper answer.
Getting to know you.

Personality:

Laid-Back
Shin, to a casual observer and even those that spot him on a regular basis, is often the absolute picture of the word 'laid-back', Seemingly caring very little for his surroundings and those that try to bother him. Able to fall asleep almost anywhere and often found relaxing in the most awkward of places. It seems as if he simply doesn't have a care in the world and for the most part. He doesn't. Moving from one day to the next in whatever manner he wishes. Shin tends to not truly care about most matters, even those seemingly important topics. That of protecting the village and expanding outwards sometimes go ignored. Why? Such topics of discussion simply do not interest the young shinobi, that is perhaps why. And sometimes it may just be he is too lazy to deal with the matter at that exact moment. He'll get it done.. eventually. Maybe after sleeping for a little while. Because really to Shin, if the matter isn't life threateningly urgent, it can be dealt with later.

Focused
When needed to be or when interested enough, Shin can be the picture of focus. Not moving until what's needed to be done is done, of course, something has to peak his interest first. But once he has, there isn't any stopping this young man from achieving what he wants. And very few ways of distracting him from it either, as he tends to shut the rest of the world around him out until he's completed whatever it is he's doing to a degree he's happy with. This could be a task as simple as speaking with someone, an assignment, a personal project of his or even figuring out a way to best use someone or something to his advantage. He does like planning ahead after all, and this focused attitude in the right moments have always helped Shin in the past. Just don't expect him to talk to you properly, if at all when he's working on something. You won't ever get a decent answer.

Whimsical
Be it day or night, around others or not. Shin always tries to find the fun within his life and that is very clearly reflected in his playful demeanour around anyone he meets. Always looking for ways to amuse himself, he accomplishes this by various methods. As long as it's fun to him, he doesn't really care. Even going so far as to play pranks on people during his childhood years, and that only increased once the five main villages and the academies in each were founded. Still to this day he will always find a way to have his find, playing pranks, winding someone up, teasing them. It's all fun, always one big game to this young man, everything always is. Life is no fun without a little game played alongside it, keeps things entertaining and more importantly, this little game always keeps him one step ahead of everyone else. Fun is what drives him, in some small way, because without it, life would simply be too boring to continue. So, he has his fun, getting on most others nerves in the process on an almost daily basis and really, that's just how he likes it.

Stubborn
No matter what you do or say, there is no changing this young man's mind. Stubborn to the core, once he has agreed to or set his mind to a task or a decision, there is very little anyone can do to change that view. Even as a child, he was stubborn to the core, refusing most of what his parents asked of him and instead disappearing to cause mischief and mayhem on his own terms. In present years, Shin is more stubborn when it comes to his own beliefs and way of doing things, he will not compromise such methods for anyone or anything. Not because he believes his methods are right or better than others, but due to the fact that he has long since stuck to his principles and has no desire nor want to change that at his age. Simply put, if you want to change this young shinobi's mind about something, be it a trivial matter or something extremely important regarding the village or perhaps even just his own opinion on a matter, you ought to be prepared for one very long uphill battle.

Observant
In terms of what others see and what they take from it, Shin likes to believe that there a few that can do as he does. Observant of the world around him, taking in every small detail he possibly can. From the simplest words spoken, to complex intricate patterns, to even a conversation on the street with a strangers. He keeps all such details stored within his memory to use if needed, having a photographic memory also helps greatly with such matters. But even without that, Shin has always been a curious kind of person and it's from this that he sits back an observes others when needed. Of course, sometimes he prefers the far more direct approach to see what he can learn about a person. But with whatever method he decides to take, he is never unaware of the world around him, or what others say about him when they assume he isn't about or simply isn't listening. The trouble is, he always listens and rarely if ever forgets, so it's better to simply manage your words around this man. You may come to regret it in the long run otherwise.

Manipulative
Ever since he was a boy, Shin has always learnt that acting a certain way could get you things you wanted or needed. As time passed, this trait only evolved, gaining skill and age and allowing him an ease of which most can't match. Shin while not always enjoying it, can and has hundreds of times manipulated others to get what he wants. Sweet words, threats of violence, a shy demeanour. He will do whatever it takes to accomplish his goals and seems to feel very little guilt, if any at all for using so many people in such a manner. He is a natural born actor and he uses that skill to it's full advantage. Stringing others along into his games, both mental and physical. You can bet that if there's a way, he will find it and exploit you in some manner to do exactly as he wants you to. While at the same time giving anyone playing his games the illusion of free will and that person making their own choices, that is far from the truth a majority of the time. He watches and observes, then strikes, pulling you into his mind games and tricks until you've lost everything. It is as such that many have been warned to be catious around this man, despite his ranking within the village. Very few listen.

Secretive
Certain things in a persons life are meant to be kept, never to be shared. Secrets never to be told to another and that is something Shin is a firm believer of. While he may manipulate and tease, he will never reveal his own secrets, fears, dreams. Any of it. Not willingly anyhow. He has and always will keep such cards in the game close to his chest. No one deserve to know such things about him. It for that reason that he observes silently, that instead of being the loudest person in the room. He remains quiet, almost withdrawn until he sees the right opportunity to join in, be it to cause chaos or simply to speak to another.. And while he may appear easily able to converse with those around him, even if they don’t always like him or feel comfortable around him (and really who would blame anyone for that?). The truth of the matter is, it is far harder than it appears for Shin to deal with all of this. And that is most certainly a secret he will take to his grave, just like many others.

Polite
Gained mostly from his mother's insistence on his manners, Shin has always been a polite young man, even if he sometimes has a rather interesting way of showing it. Certainly never stoic, but never completely stupid or too serious either. He adds his own bits of mocking tone and sarcasm into the mix when speaking, especially if it is to someone he must show respect to and yet dislikes. As a result, it's very hard to tell when he's being sincere and truthful about his respect for someone, and when he's just doing it either to wind them up or get out of a situation he isn't too fond of. Whatever the case may be, he isn't one for letting people figure out if he's being honest or not and that is how he prefers it. Because while he may show you respect out of common decency, that doesn't mean he actually like you. Still, it keeps things interesting for him and for anyone trying to figure this young man out. Which, to him, is always a good time.

Likes:
  • Night - It's cooler outside, easier to sneak about within the darkness and generally nicer. Everything seems softer to this young man at night, less harsh than the daylight that scorches the ground beneath them all.
  • Wandering - Never one to sit still, you will always if he isn't on an assignment, either find Shin wandering somewhere, asleep or having some fun in another manner. Whatever he does, he'd probably enjoying himself. Wandering around allows him to explore, which, frankly, he loves doing.
  • Teasing Others - He can't see how others can't enjoy this as much as he does, but Shin has always enjoyed seeing the various reactions from others. Be it shy, embarrassed or even angry with him for teasing them. It's all fun, so he doesn't much care as to how people view him for it.
  • Sleeping - Because really, who doesn't? Shin will quite happily sleep for as long as his day allows him too and even longer if no one comes to bother him. Those that try to wake him before he's ready however, have a habit of being blasted straight out the nearest window. So, best not to bother him.


Dislikes:
  • Extreme Temperatures - Shin has and most likely always hate extreme temperatures, including the ones within the summer months in his own village. It feels like walking into a lit furnace, on the other hand, the freezing cold air of winter doesn't make him feel any better either. As such, he will typically try to avoid such weathers whenever possible and if he can't, you'll find him indoors a lot.
  • Disrespect - You can try to irritate and bug this man all you like, but outright disrespect him? Oh no. He won't stand for that. Shin takes pride in what he's earned through hard work over the years and he will be dammed if anyone makes light of where he is now by being stupid, and not having any form of manners whatsoever.
  • Children who believe they know it all - Because really, all children do at some point and it's really darn irritating. Shin often taking great pleasure in showing such children exactly where they stand in the world. He doesn't hate children, far from it, he just dislikes the cocky ones.
  • Overly Bitter Food - It just tastes horrible okay, he never has and never will like these kinds of foods.


Fears/Phobia:
  • Caring For Someone/Further Loss - With no family to speak of anymore and Shin blaming himself in part for their demise. He is fearful of the very thought of someone getting close to him again. Be it just being thought of as apart of his family, as a close friend, or even in a romantic sense. The thought terrifies him, having someone close to you, simply increases their chances of perishing all the faster. Everyone makes enemies in this world after all, and those people often target someone that their foe may care for in some way. Shin as a result, tries his best to distance himself from people. Stop them getting too close, it's safer that way. For him and for them. He simply doesn't think he can handle someone else dying because of him, his entire family was enough. No more.


Ideals/Motivations:
Many wonder why Shin does half the things he does and the answer to it really is quite simple: curiosity. He does these things to learn, to develop, to grow and most importantly to further explode the world around him. Like a wandering soul that can never sit still for very long, Shin is a spitting image of such a person when it comes to what motivates him in life. It isn't his friends, his village or anything like that. It it to sate his own desire to discover more of what's around him, to know how things work, why they work they way they do. Be it techniques, cultures, society or just people. Of course it isn't his only motivation in life, but it is certainly a strong one. While he does wish and wonder what the world he inhabits would be like without any form of magic or special power, he is thankful that it is there. As it allows him to grow stronger in all aspects, not for others, but to be strong enough to stand on his own. To go wherever he pleases without the fear of being jumped and killed within a matter of seconds. He desires to live, for as long and as happily as he possibly can and that requires power. Power that he will always try to obtain and maintain once he controls it.

There are of course a few more simplistic reason as to why this young man does what he does. One of which is simply for fun, because if you're not enjoying your life. Then why on earth are you living like that in the first place? He lives to have fun, to enjoy what time he has before he passes on like so many before him. And that means he'll use any method possible to gain such fun, even and rather frequently at another's expense for his own entertainment for an afternoon or three. The other is is simply because he can, if someone doesn't say no, then he'll be the first to do something that others clearly don't want to see happen. Part of the fun in life is surprising and shocking others, and if he gets a kick out of their reactions to whatever he does. Then that's all the better for him.

History:
War and battle. Something that was in this in his blood long before he was even born. Shin came to be from two loving parents, not that he would truly see such a side to his family. The young boy born into the village of Mitakami within the land of wind. It wasn't exactly a peaceful place, but that was okay, nowhere was in this era. Not for one single person. Flickers of memories remain, of playing and laughing, of his father's deep laugh and mothers gentle touch. Yet, his first clear memory was forged in blood. In death, chaos and despair. At only five years old, his home was torn apart, ripped away from his grasp. And everything that such a child such as he had come to know. Gone in an instant. He fled, as did his parents, as far and as fast as they could possibly go. Coming to rest in a place that would later be known as the Wayward village, like many, running from such intense fighting. No one bothered them and for a brief while at least, they could settle. They could rest. So for the short term at least, they did, Shin asked questions of course. While any other child might be scared for his life, he was quiet yet curious. Asking again and again when they were going home. It was only after a few repeated explanations that he finally stopped, but instead he cried into his mother's arms. He wanted to go home, that was all. He wanted everything bad and scary to stop. And it was as he let himself be held within his mother's embrace that he finally calmed down, eventually coming to the realisation that no. He wouldn't be going home. Not now or even in the near future. Maybe not ever again. He wasn't sure and that alone had the young boy rather sad for a good number of weeks.

Of course, things move on and time doesn't stand still forever but for the next few years. Things seemed relatively peaceful in the small area in which they lived. His father leaving and returning regularly due to the fighting. Each time, Shin said he wanted to join, to help. And every time his father would tell him he was too young, despite by age six already showing signs of power. Nearly knocking his mother over with a concise burst of wind chakra out of frustration and those little incidents only got bigger the older he became. At the mere age of seven, his father somewhat relented. Allowing Shin to train, under both his mother and father's very careful guidance. Despite their trying to keep things slow, Shin's parents soon found they couldn't. The young boy as it turned out was an extremely fast learner, learning both techniques and concepts at a rate that was rather jarring at first. But they soon adjusted and by the age of ten. Shin had a very firm grasp on all the basics, from ninjustu to genjustsu. And while he seemed especially talented and naturally gifted with a blade or even a simple kunai. His father protested once more, with the war ongoing, he wanted his son having no part of it. And so for a year all training stopped, by his parents that was. Shin meanwhile, trained himself, already long since used to sneaking away to somewhere quiet in the village where he could practice without being discovered. Just because his parents had stopped teaching him, didn't mean he couldn't find other ways of improving. Besides, there was a war still ongoing, it didn't hurt to try. Something, despite Shin's careful sneaking off, his father knew about all to well. Plus well, there wasn't too much to do in the village. There were a few things that were midly interesting, but like many growing children of his age, he grew bored of such things very quickly. Always moving onto something new. It was that, among many other things that would serve the young boy well in the years to come.

Still, as Shin grew older the fighting only became worse and worse by the year. And it was just as the silver haired shinobi was entering his teen years that his father made a decision that would change both his father's own fate and the once carefree young boy. With the war growing by the day, they needed more people. More able bodies to fight and help. It was only a week after he had entered those teen years that his training began again, this time far more intense then before. His mother wholeheartedly against the idea, he didn't have to fight she would say, he could stay here with her. He refused. He was a fast learner, he could fight, he could help. He was making the right decision wasn't he? Or so he assumed. After two years of continuous intense training, and those same few years with his mother greatly disapproving of all of this. He left the place he had grown to call home with his father, not too far at first. But this was Shin's first encounter, the first death he ever witnessed. And while he was brave during it, fighting just how he'd learnt, aiding his father. As soon as he got back home, he threw up. The sight of dead bodies making this whole conflict seeming so much more real to him. After emptying the contents of his stomach and sleeping a little, he surprised his father and horrified his mother, who assumed he would simply stay with her after an experience like that. Oh no. Far from it. He wanted to keep going, keep helping and as as stubborn and perhaps a little reckless fifteen year old, there wasn't much anyone could do to stop him. Not that anyone really tried to either.

Four years passed in much the same manner, endless days, months, years of fighting. Of hoping this conflict would one day end and while some said it seemed closer by the day, Shin in his ever growing youth wasn't so sure about it. He couldn't see an end, after all, he was still fighting and killing on a daily basis, a fact he had long since gotten used to handling. His natural talents flourishing as the years passed him by. His skill for wielding weapons allowing the young shinobi to be deadly at a distance and even close range if it came down to it. While his skills with ninjutsu were continuously improving, he still occasionally looked to his father for advice on what he was doing wrong. Shin if nothing else was not dedicated to learning as much as he could as quickly as possible. Because the more he learnt, the quicker the chance he had of helping to end this stupid war. But of course, war does not come without it's casualties. It was a day like any other, fighting back. Until Shin witnessed a foe stabbing his own rather straight through the back. He saw red. By the time he got to the pair, his father was already long gone as Shin would find out minutes later, but instead of focusing on that. All he saw was his own anger, he had never enjoyed killing others until that point. It was simply something that had to be done. But when that man taunted him further only to beg for his life once finding himself outmatched, he ended that life with a smile on his face.

Of course returning home that day and telling his mother such news, certainly wasn't the greatest moment in his life. And yet despite that, the shinobi didn't cry one bit. Nor even appear to grieve in any way, but he did. But only within the privacy of his own heart did he mourn the loss of his father. His mother was quick to beg him not to return to the fighting, she didn't want to lose her son on top of her husband as well. But despite her constant protests, he rejoined the fight only a few weeks after his father's departure. He'd started this as a child and he was going to finish it as a grown man, one way or another. Unfortunately, it took another two long years before the war finally came to an end. And it was at the ever maturing age of twenty one, that Shin watched as the five villages were formed. And while he had considered going across the newly formed border, he instead travelled along with his mother to Sunagakure. And for a short while, he simply watched, the formation of years of hard work. Of people coming together at long last. Well it was certainly a sight to behold if nothing else, one that he would remember for a long time to come. Because despite all the hardships and fighting, they had made it here. Soon enough even a ninja academy was being made, to train those of the right age, a new generation. And while he was offered a rank right from the start. Shin attended along with others like him, some older, some younger that had all fought in the war. Thankfully, his time spent fighting and experience, as well as his ability to learn quickly let him graduate and leave within a single year there.

Unfortunately, something good must be balanced out within the world. And a week after he was out of the academy, his mother passed on. She had been ill, a fact she had hidden from him until the very end. Ill since even before the end of the fighting. He mourned yes, he grieved, but never publicly. Instead, he smiled and kept on smiling to this very day. Some even saw him as an unfeeling monster, but he didn't listen. Their opinions were worthless to him. Instead, he focused on rising above that and taking part in the first Chuunin exams set up and passing with flying colors. A number of missions and only six months later was he prompted to take up the post of a special Jounin, the Kazekage or so he was informed saw great potential from him. His natural and ever refining talents with weapons of all kinds had impressed and while he still had a long way to go, he had shown skill. Unlike some of his peers who had opted after the war, to simply not bother any longer. If they wanted to prevent a conflict like the last from ever happening again, they needed those with power to be capable of handling any task. And that, was his aim. He wouldn't let something like that happen again, not if he had the power to stop it. Not in a million years.

With that aim in mind, he trained and thankfully most people stayed away. Either too worried about how he may react and some even scared due to his appearance. He didn't much care. For two solid years, his focus was on very little else but improving himself. The Kazekage even let him venture over to Konohagakure and the land of fire to observe and learn from those who both fought and thought in a different way to he and his peers. It was most certainly an interesting experience and the more he learned, the more he wished to learn and discover. When he did return, both wiser and strong than before, surprisingly enough, the silver haired shinobi spent the next three weeks deep within the libraries within the village. Learning and reading up. Thankfully, when the Kazekage asked for a demonstration of what he'd learnt over the past few years, he was more than ready. Facing off against someone of a higher rank than he didn't intimidate him and despite a difference in power between the two there was eventually a clear winner. After a full fifteen minutes of fighting, using every trick he could think of and countering as much as he could, after a final blast launched at the other, causing a rather loud explosion. He had done it and while he certainly hadn't killed the other male, that wasn't needed, only to get him to concede before the innocent sparring turned into a death match. With that, at the age of twenty five, through hard work and sheer determination, he was granted the rank of Jounin.

Despite attaining such a rank, while some would be happy. It wasn't enough for Shin. He wasn't power hungry, but he knew to do what he wished, even if he never needed to accomplish such a task. He would need to be better than he was now. So, he took on missions, some alone, some with those like him. And a rare few, much to his dismay, of small groups of Genin that he had to lead. Was it a pain to do? Hell yes. But it gave him experience and that was all he needed from it really, the actually leading part wasn't all that fun at all. Something he would in later years come to avoid like the plague. But at that time, he didn't consider it. Only working further, driven by nothing else but his own determination and personal ambition. But that it seemed, was enough. Still everyone needed a break and after months of working he took that break. A year of mostly resting and living as many did, before he was back at it once again. For the next three years, he honed his skills to a knife's edge. Taking on more and more missions alone and completing them without error, he eventually began to gain a reputation. Often hidden in the shadows and yet always ready to strike. Something people began to take notice of, particularly his skill with throwing weapons. Many eventually creating rumours of his skill, murmurs of wonder. He never carried a visible weapon around and yet any who tried to cause serious harm to the village, would often be found dead. With nothing but a single kunai protruding from their necks. Of course, rumours grow and eventually one spread and stuck after a particular mission in conjunction with another Jounin, to take out a group of rouge ninja. They were easily dispatched and yet there were no wounds on their leader apart from kunai strikes in various places on his body. Surely no man could be that accurate on a target, the rumours spread that such attacks were thrown from a great distance. Even with the rouge ninja standing still and unaware, surely no normal shinobi could throw a kunai from one hundred meters and still hit his mark? It seemed impossible and yet many believed Shin could, which, he never denied, not even to this very day. It was because of this, that he earned the moniker of the Sogeki-Hei (Sharpshooter).

It was on a mission, a little over a year ago that something changed. A small change, but one that was visible nonetheless. The assignment was slightly different compared to many he’d been on previously. And while he was no newbie to challenging odds and highly dangerous situations. This was just a little different. He was sent to eliminate a high value target, a ninja that had been plaguing the area for many years and even extending over into the land of fire. Tracking him was bad enough, the man was clearly hidden away, fighting the man was another matter entirely. Even while fighting, Shin still had to chase the fool, on the way to kill a rather high ranking member of his village from what he could gather. Unfortunately, he was far trickier than he would have liked. The darn fool making his way into the village and halfway to where the Kazekage was residing. Thankfully, he had managed to stop his target in the middle of one of Suna's training grounds. Sadly because of that. some thought it was a good idea to try and watch what was happening. It wasn't. In the end, the fight was a vicious one, the silver haired shinobi having to fight while keeping everyone else in the village from getting slaughtered by a stray attack or blast thrown in their direction. And after what felt like hours and almost getting an arm cut off for his troubles, it was over. The fool wasn't dead, simply unconscious after having used up all his chakra and Shin wasn't in a much better state. Still, after the rouge had been contained and locked up, he had been content to go home and collapse onto his bed to sleep until the following day.

The following day seemed normal enough, besides the exhausted feeling across his entire body, until he was summoned by the Kazekage that was. He was told that the man had heard many a rumour from those in the village and even had been witness to part of the fight himself from a distance. What changed however, was what he was given as a reward, sure, he expected something after such a fight. But he certainly had not expected, for his constant contribution and effort for the village to be granted an increase in rank. Not that it really changed too much for him, only that the Kage himself would be counting on his aid more frequently than before. Shin while highly surprised, accepted nonetheless. Moving ahead a year and not much has changed for this man, while he now leaves the village a little more often (and is rather happy about having far more of an opportunity to explore when he has the free time), he doesn't forget his duty. After all, his own family gave everything just to make a village like this a reality, he wouldn't let them down.

You've given yourself 10 stat points too many by accident. When they are added together they should be 610 since you get 600 starting stats + 10 to chakra that everyone has. You have 620 right now.

Other than that, this app is fantastic. Just make that quick fix and let me know!

General appearance:
From a single glance alone, Shin most certainly does not seem like the type of person who would possess any kind of skill or even worth enough to become a shinobi. In fact simply by looking at him, many describe the young man as "unsettling" or "creepy" upon first glance. And that really, is exactly how he wants you to feel. Why many feel that way is rather easy to see just from that first glance. A tall young man, looking to be in his late twenties. Unusual silver hair, a lithe build so much so that parts of his body almost appear skeletal in nature, skin ever so cool to the touch no matter his current location. And most importantly the ever present grin he wears on his face, never fading in public and even rarely so when alone. A most notable fact on top of this, is this young man's eyes, or rather the lack of them. They are there of course, everyone needs them to see after all, but his eyelids remain almost entirely closed. Allowing Shin to see perfectly fine, but never allowing anyone to see his eyes unless he wishes it so. It is from this, that many always assume that he is up to something, which isn't entirely wrong at all. It is rumoured that any that have seen this experienced shinobi's eyes, have died rather quickly after. Shin, has never confirmed nor denied this, content to let the rumours roam about the village like wildfire.

Regarding the way in which he moves, Shin's typical stance is most often highly relaxed. Like a laid-back animal content with it's existence, this alone occasionally making him seem as if he is bored with the world around him. Or that he takes nothing seriously. Even so, while his stance is relaxed, most of the steps he takes are purposeful even graceful at times, there to accomplish a purpose and anyone with a keen enough eye for body language will notice this. He doesn't command attention when entering a room, not naturally anyhow. In fact, without making a display of it, Shin rarely draws that much attention to himself. The few that do look, often very quickly look away, if from that unsettling nature he possess or his physical appearance alone. No one is entirely sure and no one typically bothers to try and figure out why either. Which is fine with him really. His vocal tone often confuses many a person on top of how carelessly he seems to move about. Often times his tone is light, polite and yet oddly mocking at the same time. While if just listening in casually, many may assume him to be an upbeat sort of person, this is simply what he permits the world to see. That same tone can become darker and deep with the correct emotional trigger, and switch the young man from sounding friendly - if a little strange. To someone you simply do not want to converse with at all. When speaking to those he dislikes, or simply people who end up irritating or boring this man, his tone will change, just slightly. Words like the cutting edge of a blade and yet, he still wears a smile. Always mocking, always fooling.

His way of dress can sometimes be just as strange as the man himself. Ranging from a very form fitting all black attire for any kind of mission that requires an extreme amount of focus and skill. To lose, airy clothing that allows Shin both free movement and a certain level of comfort that you simply do not have for the attire many shinobi wear on 'serious' assignments. When travelling, he is well known to wear a free flowing cape around his neck, and something just a tad similar within the winter months. But only when absolutely necessary, as anything that restricts his movement in any way, isn't something Shin will willing wear unless the weather demands it. Shin never has, and never will wear any kind of accessories atop his clothing, unless it is something that will aid him in combat that he can live with. Generally this however means you will never see him with a headband unlike many other shinobi, or anything of a similar sort either. In his down time however, when wandering about the village, he can be spotted wearing a thin necklace, with a small light blue sphere hanging delicately off of the chain. Shin claims this is a memento of his mother's, but no one is entirely sure and any that have tried to ask have never gotten a proper answer.
Getting to know you.

Personality:

Laid-Back
Shin, to a casual observer and even those that spot him on a regular basis, is often the absolute picture of the word 'laid-back', Seemingly caring very little for his surroundings and those that try to bother him. Able to fall asleep almost anywhere and often found relaxing in the most awkward of places. It seems as if he simply doesn't have a care in the world and for the most part. He doesn't. Moving from one day to the next in whatever manner he wishes. Shin tends to not truly care about most matters, even those seemingly important topics. That of protecting the village and expanding outwards sometimes go ignored. Why? Such topics of discussion simply do not interest the young shinobi, that is perhaps why. And sometimes it may just be he is too lazy to deal with the matter at that exact moment. He'll get it done.. eventually. Maybe after sleeping for a little while. Because really to Shin, if the matter isn't life threateningly urgent, it can be dealt with later.

Focused
When needed to be or when interested enough, Shin can be the picture of focus. Not moving until what's needed to be done is done, of course, something has to peak his interest first. But once he has, there isn't any stopping this young man from achieving what he wants. And very few ways of distracting him from it either, as he tends to shut the rest of the world around him out until he's completed whatever it is he's doing to a degree he's happy with. This could be a task as simple as speaking with someone, an assignment, a personal project of his or even figuring out a way to best use someone or something to his advantage. He does like planning ahead after all, and this focused attitude in the right moments have always helped Shin in the past. Just don't expect him to talk to you properly, if at all when he's working on something. You won't ever get a decent answer.

Whimsical
Be it day or night, around others or not. Shin always tries to find the fun within his life and that is very clearly reflected in his playful demeanour around anyone he meets. Always looking for ways to amuse himself, he accomplishes this by various methods. As long as it's fun to him, he doesn't really care. Even going so far as to play pranks on people during his childhood years, and that only increased once the five main villages and the academies in each were founded. Still to this day he will always find a way to have his find, playing pranks, winding someone up, teasing them. It's all fun, always one big game to this young man, everything always is. Life is no fun without a little game played alongside it, keeps things entertaining and more importantly, this little game always keeps him one step ahead of everyone else. Fun is what drives him, in some small way, because without it, life would simply be too boring to continue. So, he has his fun, getting on most others nerves in the process on an almost daily basis and really, that's just how he likes it.

Stubborn
No matter what you do or say, there is no changing this young man's mind. Stubborn to the core, once he has agreed to or set his mind to a task or a decision, there is very little anyone can do to change that view. Even as a child, he was stubborn to the core, refusing most of what his parents asked of him and instead disappearing to cause mischief and mayhem on his own terms. In present years, Shin is more stubborn when it comes to his own beliefs and way of doing things, he will not compromise such methods for anyone or anything. Not because he believes his methods are right or better than others, but due to the fact that he has long since stuck to his principles and has no desire nor want to change that at his age. Simply put, if you want to change this young shinobi's mind about something, be it a trivial matter or something extremely important regarding the village or perhaps even just his own opinion on a matter, you ought to be prepared for one very long uphill battle.

Observant
In terms of what others see and what they take from it, Shin likes to believe that there a few that can do as he does. Observant of the world around him, taking in every small detail he possibly can. From the simplest words spoken, to complex intricate patterns, to even a conversation on the street with a strangers. He keeps all such details stored within his memory to use if needed, having a photographic memory also helps greatly with such matters. But even without that, Shin has always been a curious kind of person and it's from this that he sits back an observes others when needed. Of course, sometimes he prefers the far more direct approach to see what he can learn about a person. But with whatever method he decides to take, he is never unaware of the world around him, or what others say about him when they assume he isn't about or simply isn't listening. The trouble is, he always listens and rarely if ever forgets, so it's better to simply manage your words around this man. You may come to regret it in the long run otherwise.

Manipulative
Ever since he was a boy, Shin has always learnt that acting a certain way could get you things you wanted or needed. As time passed, this trait only evolved, gaining skill and age and allowing him an ease of which most can't match. Shin while not always enjoying it, can and has hundreds of times manipulated others to get what he wants. Sweet words, threats of violence, a shy demeanour. He will do whatever it takes to accomplish his goals and seems to feel very little guilt, if any at all for using so many people in such a manner. He is a natural born actor and he uses that skill to it's full advantage. Stringing others along into his games, both mental and physical. You can bet that if there's a way, he will find it and exploit you in some manner to do exactly as he wants you to. While at the same time giving anyone playing his games the illusion of free will and that person making their own choices, that is far from the truth a majority of the time. He watches and observes, then strikes, pulling you into his mind games and tricks until you've lost everything. It is as such that many have been warned to be catious around this man, despite his ranking within the village. Very few listen.

Secretive
Certain things in a persons life are meant to be kept, never to be shared. Secrets never to be told to another and that is something Shin is a firm believer of. While he may manipulate and tease, he will never reveal his own secrets, fears, dreams. Any of it. Not willingly anyhow. He has and always will keep such cards in the game close to his chest. No one deserve to know such things about him. It for that reason that he observes silently, that instead of being the loudest person in the room. He remains quiet, almost withdrawn until he sees the right opportunity to join in, be it to cause chaos or simply to speak to another.. And while he may appear easily able to converse with those around him, even if they don’t always like him or feel comfortable around him (and really who would blame anyone for that?). The truth of the matter is, it is far harder than it appears for Shin to deal with all of this. And that is most certainly a secret he will take to his grave, just like many others.

Polite
Gained mostly from his mother's insistence on his manners, Shin has always been a polite young man, even if he sometimes has a rather interesting way of showing it. Certainly never stoic, but never completely stupid or too serious either. He adds his own bits of mocking tone and sarcasm into the mix when speaking, especially if it is to someone he must show respect to and yet dislikes. As a result, it's very hard to tell when he's being sincere and truthful about his respect for someone, and when he's just doing it either to wind them up or get out of a situation he isn't too fond of. Whatever the case may be, he isn't one for letting people figure out if he's being honest or not and that is how he prefers it. Because while he may show you respect out of common decency, that doesn't mean he actually like you. Still, it keeps things interesting for him and for anyone trying to figure this young man out. Which, to him, is always a good time.

Likes:
  • Night - It's cooler outside, easier to sneak about within the darkness and generally nicer. Everything seems softer to this young man at night, less harsh than the daylight that scorches the ground beneath them all.
  • Wandering - Never one to sit still, you will always if he isn't on an assignment, either find Shin wandering somewhere, asleep or having some fun in another manner. Whatever he does, he'd probably enjoying himself. Wandering around allows him to explore, which, frankly, he loves doing.
  • Teasing Others - He can't see how others can't enjoy this as much as he does, but Shin has always enjoyed seeing the various reactions from others. Be it shy, embarrassed or even angry with him for teasing them. It's all fun, so he doesn't much care as to how people view him for it.
  • Sleeping - Because really, who doesn't? Shin will quite happily sleep for as long as his day allows him too and even longer if no one comes to bother him. Those that try to wake him before he's ready however, have a habit of being blasted straight out the nearest window. So, best not to bother him.


Dislikes:
  • Extreme Temperatures - Shin has and most likely always hate extreme temperatures, including the ones within the summer months in his own village. It feels like walking into a lit furnace, on the other hand, the freezing cold air of winter doesn't make him feel any better either. As such, he will typically try to avoid such weathers whenever possible and if he can't, you'll find him indoors a lot.
  • Disrespect - You can try to irritate and bug this man all you like, but outright disrespect him? Oh no. He won't stand for that. Shin takes pride in what he's earned through hard work over the years and he will be dammed if anyone makes light of where he is now by being stupid, and not having any form of manners whatsoever.
  • Children who believe they know it all - Because really, all children do at some point and it's really darn irritating. Shin often taking great pleasure in showing such children exactly where they stand in the world. He doesn't hate children, far from it, he just dislikes the cocky ones.
  • Overly Bitter Food - It just tastes horrible okay, he never has and never will like these kinds of foods.


Fears/Phobia:
  • Caring For Someone/Further Loss - With no family to speak of anymore and Shin blaming himself in part for their demise. He is fearful of the very thought of someone getting close to him again. Be it just being thought of as apart of his family, as a close friend, or even in a romantic sense. The thought terrifies him, having someone close to you, simply increases their chances of perishing all the faster. Everyone makes enemies in this world after all, and those people often target someone that their foe may care for in some way. Shin as a result, tries his best to distance himself from people. Stop them getting too close, it's safer that way. For him and for them. He simply doesn't think he can handle someone else dying because of him, his entire family was enough. No more.


Ideals/Motivations:
Many wonder why Shin does half the things he does and the answer to it really is quite simple: curiosity. He does these things to learn, to develop, to grow and most importantly to further explode the world around him. Like a wandering soul that can never sit still for very long, Shin is a spitting image of such a person when it comes to what motivates him in life. It isn't his friends, his village or anything like that. It it to sate his own desire to discover more of what's around him, to know how things work, why they work they way they do. Be it techniques, cultures, society or just people. Of course it isn't his only motivation in life, but it is certainly a strong one. While he does wish and wonder what the world he inhabits would be like without any form of magic or special power, he is thankful that it is there. As it allows him to grow stronger in all aspects, not for others, but to be strong enough to stand on his own. To go wherever he pleases without the fear of being jumped and killed within a matter of seconds. He desires to live, for as long and as happily as he possibly can and that requires power. Power that he will always try to obtain and maintain once he controls it.

There are of course a few more simplistic reason as to why this young man does what he does. One of which is simply for fun, because if you're not enjoying your life. Then why on earth are you living like that in the first place? He lives to have fun, to enjoy what time he has before he passes on like so many before him. And that means he'll use any method possible to gain such fun, even and rather frequently at another's expense for his own entertainment for an afternoon or three. The other is is simply because he can, if someone doesn't say no, then he'll be the first to do something that others clearly don't want to see happen. Part of the fun in life is surprising and shocking others, and if he gets a kick out of their reactions to whatever he does. Then that's all the better for him.

History:
War and battle. Something that was in this in his blood long before he was even born. Shin came to be from two loving parents, not that he would truly see such a side to his family. The young boy born into the village of Mitakami within the land of wind. It wasn't exactly a peaceful place, but that was okay, nowhere was in this era. Not for one single person. Flickers of memories remain, of playing and laughing, of his father's deep laugh and mothers gentle touch. Yet, his first clear memory was forged in blood. In death, chaos and despair. At only five years old, his home was torn apart, ripped away from his grasp. And everything that such a child such as he had come to know. Gone in an instant. He fled, as did his parents, as far and as fast as they could possibly go. Coming to rest in a place that would later be known as the Wayward village, like many, running from such intense fighting. No one bothered them and for a brief while at least, they could settle. They could rest. So for the short term at least, they did, Shin asked questions of course. While any other child might be scared for his life, he was quiet yet curious. Asking again and again when they were going home. It was only after a few repeated explanations that he finally stopped, but instead he cried into his mother's arms. He wanted to go home, that was all. He wanted everything bad and scary to stop. And it was as he let himself be held within his mother's embrace that he finally calmed down, eventually coming to the realisation that no. He wouldn't be going home. Not now or even in the near future. Maybe not ever again. He wasn't sure and that alone had the young boy rather sad for a good number of weeks.

Of course, things move on and time doesn't stand still forever but for the next few years. Things seemed relatively peaceful in the small area in which they lived. His father leaving and returning regularly due to the fighting. Each time, Shin said he wanted to join, to help. And every time his father would tell him he was too young, despite by age six already showing signs of power. Nearly knocking his mother over with a concise burst of wind chakra out of frustration and those little incidents only got bigger the older he became. At the mere age of seven, his father somewhat relented. Allowing Shin to train, under both his mother and father's very careful guidance. Despite their trying to keep things slow, Shin's parents soon found they couldn't. The young boy as it turned out was an extremely fast learner, learning both techniques and concepts at a rate that was rather jarring at first. But they soon adjusted and by the age of ten. Shin had a very firm grasp on all the basics, from ninjustu to genjustsu. And while he seemed especially talented and naturally gifted with a blade or even a simple kunai. His father protested once more, with the war ongoing, he wanted his son having no part of it. And so for a year all training stopped, by his parents that was. Shin meanwhile, trained himself, already long since used to sneaking away to somewhere quiet in the village where he could practice without being discovered. Just because his parents had stopped teaching him, didn't mean he couldn't find other ways of improving. Besides, there was a war still ongoing, it didn't hurt to try. Something, despite Shin's careful sneaking off, his father knew about all to well. Plus well, there wasn't too much to do in the village. There were a few things that were midly interesting, but like many growing children of his age, he grew bored of such things very quickly. Always moving onto something new. It was that, among many other things that would serve the young boy well in the years to come.

Still, as Shin grew older the fighting only became worse and worse by the year. And it was just as the silver haired shinobi was entering his teen years that his father made a decision that would change both his father's own fate and the once carefree young boy. With the war growing by the day, they needed more people. More able bodies to fight and help. It was only a week after he had entered those teen years that his training began again, this time far more intense then before. His mother wholeheartedly against the idea, he didn't have to fight she would say, he could stay here with her. He refused. He was a fast learner, he could fight, he could help. He was making the right decision wasn't he? Or so he assumed. After two years of continuous intense training, and those same few years with his mother greatly disapproving of all of this. He left the place he had grown to call home with his father, not too far at first. But this was Shin's first encounter, the first death he ever witnessed. And while he was brave during it, fighting just how he'd learnt, aiding his father. As soon as he got back home, he threw up. The sight of dead bodies making this whole conflict seeming so much more real to him. After emptying the contents of his stomach and sleeping a little, he surprised his father and horrified his mother, who assumed he would simply stay with her after an experience like that. Oh no. Far from it. He wanted to keep going, keep helping and as as stubborn and perhaps a little reckless fifteen year old, there wasn't much anyone could do to stop him. Not that anyone really tried to either.

Four years passed in much the same manner, endless days, months, years of fighting. Of hoping this conflict would one day end and while some said it seemed closer by the day, Shin in his ever growing youth wasn't so sure about it. He couldn't see an end, after all, he was still fighting and killing on a daily basis, a fact he had long since gotten used to handling. His natural talents flourishing as the years passed him by. His skill for wielding weapons allowing the young shinobi to be deadly at a distance and even close range if it came down to it. While his skills with ninjutsu were continuously improving, he still occasionally looked to his father for advice on what he was doing wrong. Shin if nothing else was not dedicated to learning as much as he could as quickly as possible. Because the more he learnt, the quicker the chance he had of helping to end this stupid war. But of course, war does not come without it's casualties. It was a day like any other, fighting back. Until Shin witnessed a foe stabbing his own rather straight through the back. He saw red. By the time he got to the pair, his father was already long gone as Shin would find out minutes later, but instead of focusing on that. All he saw was his own anger, he had never enjoyed killing others until that point. It was simply something that had to be done. But when that man taunted him further only to beg for his life once finding himself outmatched, he ended that life with a smile on his face.

Of course returning home that day and telling his mother such news, certainly wasn't the greatest moment in his life. And yet despite that, the shinobi didn't cry one bit. Nor even appear to grieve in any way, but he did. But only within the privacy of his own heart did he mourn the loss of his father. His mother was quick to beg him not to return to the fighting, she didn't want to lose her son on top of her husband as well. But despite her constant protests, he rejoined the fight only a few weeks after his father's departure. He'd started this as a child and he was going to finish it as a grown man, one way or another. Unfortunately, it took another two long years before the war finally came to an end. And it was at the ever maturing age of twenty one, that Shin watched as the five villages were formed. And while he had considered going across the newly formed border, he instead travelled along with his mother to Sunagakure. And for a short while, he simply watched, the formation of years of hard work. Of people coming together at long last. Well it was certainly a sight to behold if nothing else, one that he would remember for a long time to come. Because despite all the hardships and fighting, they had made it here. Soon enough even a ninja academy was being made, to train those of the right age, a new generation. And while he was offered a rank right from the start. Shin attended along with others like him, some older, some younger that had all fought in the war. Thankfully, his time spent fighting and experience, as well as his ability to learn quickly let him graduate and leave within a single year there.

Unfortunately, something good must be balanced out within the world. And a week after he was out of the academy, his mother passed on. She had been ill, a fact she had hidden from him until the very end. Ill since even before the end of the fighting. He mourned yes, he grieved, but never publicly. Instead, he smiled and kept on smiling to this very day. Some even saw him as an unfeeling monster, but he didn't listen. Their opinions were worthless to him. Instead, he focused on rising above that and taking part in the first Chuunin exams set up and passing with flying colors. A number of missions and only six months later was he prompted to take up the post of a special Jounin, the Kazekage or so he was informed saw great potential from him. His natural and ever refining talents with weapons of all kinds had impressed and while he still had a long way to go, he had shown skill. Unlike some of his peers who had opted after the war, to simply not bother any longer. If they wanted to prevent a conflict like the last from ever happening again, they needed those with power to be capable of handling any task. And that, was his aim. He wouldn't let something like that happen again, not if he had the power to stop it. Not in a million years.

With that aim in mind, he trained and thankfully most people stayed away. Either too worried about how he may react and some even scared due to his appearance. He didn't much care. For two solid years, his focus was on very little else but improving himself. The Kazekage even let him venture over to Konohagakure and the land of fire to observe and learn from those who both fought and thought in a different way to he and his peers. It was most certainly an interesting experience and the more he learned, the more he wished to learn and discover. When he did return, both wiser and strong than before, surprisingly enough, the silver haired shinobi spent the next three weeks deep within the libraries within the village. Learning and reading up. Thankfully, when the Kazekage asked for a demonstration of what he'd learnt over the past few years, he was more than ready. Facing off against someone of a higher rank than he didn't intimidate him and despite a difference in power between the two there was eventually a clear winner. After a full fifteen minutes of fighting, using every trick he could think of and countering as much as he could, after a final blast launched at the other, causing a rather loud explosion. He had done it and while he certainly hadn't killed the other male, that wasn't needed, only to get him to concede before the innocent sparring turned into a death match. With that, at the age of twenty five, through hard work and sheer determination, he was granted the rank of Jounin.

Despite attaining such a rank, while some would be happy. It wasn't enough for Shin. He wasn't power hungry, but he knew to do what he wished, even if he never needed to accomplish such a task. He would need to be better than he was now. So, he took on missions, some alone, some with those like him. And a rare few, much to his dismay, of small groups of Genin that he had to lead. Was it a pain to do? Hell yes. But it gave him experience and that was all he needed from it really, the actually leading part wasn't all that fun at all. Something he would in later years come to avoid like the plague. But at that time, he didn't consider it. Only working further, driven by nothing else but his own determination and personal ambition. But that it seemed, was enough. Still everyone needed a break and after months of working he took that break. A year of mostly resting and living as many did, before he was back at it once again. For the next three years, he honed his skills to a knife's edge. Taking on more and more missions alone and completing them without error, he eventually began to gain a reputation. Often hidden in the shadows and yet always ready to strike. Something people began to take notice of, particularly his skill with throwing weapons. Many eventually creating rumours of his skill, murmurs of wonder. He never carried a visible weapon around and yet any who tried to cause serious harm to the village, would often be found dead. With nothing but a single kunai protruding from their necks. Of course, rumours grow and eventually one spread and stuck after a particular mission in conjunction with another Jounin, to take out a group of rouge ninja. They were easily dispatched and yet there were no wounds on their leader apart from kunai strikes in various places on his body. Surely no man could be that accurate on a target, the rumours spread that such attacks were thrown from a great distance. Even with the rouge ninja standing still and unaware, surely no normal shinobi could throw a kunai from one hundred meters and still hit his mark? It seemed impossible and yet many believed Shin could, which, he never denied, not even to this very day. It was because of this, that he earned the moniker of the Sogeki-Hei (Sharpshooter).

It was on a mission, a little over a year ago that something changed. A small change, but one that was visible nonetheless. The assignment was slightly different compared to many he’d been on previously. And while he was no newbie to challenging odds and highly dangerous situations. This was just a little different. He was sent to eliminate a high value target, a ninja that had been plaguing the area for many years and even extending over into the land of fire. Tracking him was bad enough, the man was clearly hidden away, fighting the man was another matter entirely. Even while fighting, Shin still had to chase the fool, on the way to kill a rather high ranking member of his village from what he could gather. Unfortunately, he was far trickier than he would have liked. The darn fool making his way into the village and halfway to where the Kazekage was residing. Thankfully, he had managed to stop his target in the middle of one of Suna's training grounds. Sadly because of that. some thought it was a good idea to try and watch what was happening. It wasn't. In the end, the fight was a vicious one, the silver haired shinobi having to fight while keeping everyone else in the village from getting slaughtered by a stray attack or blast thrown in their direction. And after what felt like hours and almost getting an arm cut off for his troubles, it was over. The fool wasn't dead, simply unconscious after having used up all his chakra and Shin wasn't in a much better state. Still, after the rouge had been contained and locked up, he had been content to go home and collapse onto his bed to sleep until the following day.

The following day seemed normal enough, besides the exhausted feeling across his entire body, until he was summoned by the Kazekage that was. He was told that the man had heard many a rumour from those in the village and even had been witness to part of the fight himself from a distance. What changed however, was what he was given as a reward, sure, he expected something after such a fight. But he certainly had not expected, for his constant contribution and effort for the village to be granted an increase in rank. Not that it really changed too much for him, only that the Kage himself would be counting on his aid more frequently than before. Shin while highly surprised, accepted nonetheless. Moving ahead a year and not much has changed for this man, while he now leaves the village a little more often (and is rather happy about having far more of an opportunity to explore when he has the free time), he doesn't forget his duty. After all, his own family gave everything just to make a village like this a reality, he wouldn't let them down.
