PostSubject: Torasame Hoshigaki   Sun 06 Nov 2011, 4:31 pm

Basic Info

Name: Torasame Hoshigaki
Nickname/Alias: Tora
Age: 24
Gender: Male
Height: 8'2"
Weight: 423 lbs
Important Family Members: Shirosame Hoshigaki, Former Mizukage

General Appearance


Basic looks
Like all members of the Hoshigake Clan, Torasame has blue skin, round eyes, gill marks on his cheeks, sharpened teeth and more muscle than most people his age. On top of that, Torasame has long, shaggy dark blue hair and long fingernails. The shark used in his ritual was a tiger shark, and as such, he inherited its markings; dark spots and stripes mark his blue skin, but have begun to fade with his maturity.

Preferred Wardrobe:
His clothing is simple and practical. He wears the standard ninja sandals, and long pants that don’t inhibit movement. He wears ninja mesh as an undershirt, as well as a long sleeved jumper that hides his body. On top of this, he wears a long cloak that is black on the outside and a royal blue on the inside.

Personality:

  • Loyal-
    Tora’s prime personality trait is his loyalty. Though this does not always extend to authority figures, he does maintain fierce loyalty to members of the Hoshigaki clan, his direct family, and his friends. This loyalty does extend to his village, but personal loyalty is what matters most to Tora. It is his fatal flaw, the one chink in his armour his enemies can exploit.

  • Determined-
    Determined is another word to describe Tora. Once he sets himself onto a task, he won’t deviate from that task until it is completed. Generally he sets himself achievable goals to complete for each day. He doesn’t always fail these goals; unlike some people, he will never set himself a goal he knows he can’t achieve.

  • Rogue-
    Tora often goes against the ways of the Hoshigaki clan. While most of his shark brethren prefer to dwell in solitary amongst themselves, Tora seems to simply love people. The only member of the clan Tora still often talks to is his older brother Shirosame, and even then, it is often for some reprimand or another.

  • Attacking Style: All Out and Direct-
    Like all of the Hoshigaki Clan, Tora doesn’t bother with trickery and subterfuge. He prefers the upfront approach, leaving true ‘ninja’ skills to those that feel they are more practical. If you want someone to spy or assassinate, hire someone else. Now, if you want something busted up or someone killed upfront, Tora is your guy.

  • Versatile-
    Tora knows that versatility means survival in the ninja world. He doesn’t set himself into one single routine, and in battle he fights with a fusion of everything he knows, blending into a truly unique style.

  • Infatuated-
    While many of the Hoshigaki clan stick to themselves and are lonely individuals, Tora once confided in his love, Hybris Kaguya. The memories of their brief relationship have left him bitter towards her.



Bloodline Information

Kekkei Genkai: Hoshigaki

Description:
Members of the Hoshigaki Clan are perhaps most known for their shark-like appearance. The body, which is merged with a Shark's during a painful ritual, completely changes to accommodate the differences in the body. The first and most noticeable thing about the transition is the color of the skin. Members of the Hoshigaki Clan have skin that ranges from soft blue in color to a dark gray, dependent upon the type of shark that was used for the ritual transformation.

Beyond that, the body also changes to take on a slimmer shape. A large amount of skin and muscle tissue becomes replaced with cartilage, making them odd to the touch. That being said, a large amount of muscle tissue is added to the body from the shark, too. At the neck, two lines of gills can be seen at the front, giving them the ability to breath underwater. The Hoshigaki's body is usually more bulky than the average, but from the appearance of tough muscle.

Also very noticeable quite quickly is the increased rows of very sharp, fine teeth. The eyes are also a little more circular than the average person's, and they have a more defined nose. Beyond that, the clan has no true heirarchy or structure. They understand that it's a shark eat shark world, and there are few restrictions imposed upon the members of the clan by the other members of the clan, for the ritual itself comes with several restrictions that cannot be fought against.

There is a singular symbol of authority within the Hoshigaki Clan, and those would be the Shark Priests. The Shark Priests are a small sect that rules over the religious aspects of the Shark Human's lives, deciding the actions that are best for the clan. It is only these Shark Priests that have access to the knowledge of the ritual that grants the impressive Shark powers. Those not born of the Shark Clan must find these Shark Priests to have them give the Ritual.

Weapons

Weapon Name: Ushio-Waru (Rip – Tide)

Description: Ushio-Waru, or the Rip-Tide blade is an ancient weapon, carved entirely of blue topaz. With its wavy design the sword truly is a masterpiece, and seems to conduct Suiton chakra, as it’ll glow blue in battle. As the blade is carved from stone the sword is very heavy, requiring a kenjutsu master to simply wield it. This blade was given to Torasame after he mastered Battojutsu and Iatojutsu, two techniques that revolves around drawing and sheathing the blade very quickly. THis particular model is a short sword, the blade itself being roughly two feet long.


Weapon Name: Shiro (Fluffy)

Description: Originally Shirosame's (Torasame's older brother) sword, Torasame now possesses it as a memento to his fallen sibling. While it's original name was "Fluffy", Tora renamed it "Shiro" in his brother's memory. The sword itself possesses no extraordinary aspects. It is simply really big, and really heavy. Fundamentally one would need to have the increased strength of a Hoshigaki in order to wield it, as the sword has a blade that is just shy of six feet and weighs nearly two-hundred pounds. Torasame will typically carry this massive weapon in straps, allowing it to hang from his back.

History

Pre-Torasame Arc

Torasame’s father, Gen Hoshigaki was a powerful Shark Priest from Kirigakure, who fell in love with a beautiful girl named Rei Takamatsu. The other Shark Priests forbid marriage outside the clan, so they both left the village and went missing. They returned 2 years later with Rei highly pregnant, and seeking forgiveness. Although Gen was accepted back in the clan, the other Shark Priests did not allow him to be one again, and tortured him for his betrayal of the clan and the village, giving him scars all over his body. Two weeks later, Rei gave birth to a young boy and because of a very exhausting birth she died. However, the little boy’s health was not in good condition, and the medical ninjas did not know how to help him. Eventually, Gen asked the Shark Priests to perform The Ritual on him. The Priests agreed, but they told him that he would have to get the requirements for The Ritual himself. So he ventured into the sea, searching for the strongest shark that would make his boy survive. Upon his return, he was missing his left arm, and over his shoulder, a white shark was stretching to the ground. The Priests performed The Ritual, and the young boy’s physical condition got better, but his mental state suffered severe damage, although nobody could see it at that young age. Eventually the boy would be named Shirosame.

Roughly a year after Shirosame’s birth was when the mystical Sages visited the ninja world. While the Hoshigaki clan may have been wide spread prior to their arrival, the following clash and resulting wars thinned their numbers greatly. The remaining Hoshigaki’s in other villages round the world soon faded from existence, it was discovered that they indeed has issues reproducing in dry climates, and with their numbers as small as they were, it was fated that they would die. Back in Kirigakure however, Gen and a small number of other Hoshigaki’s still existed, the priest sect having vanished as well however. Striving to keep the clan alive, Gen wedded and impregnated what would be Torasame’s mother, Keshousame. Nine months later, Torasame was born.

The Academy Arc

Growing up, Torasame was kept in the shadow of his older brother. It was not as if the young Hoshigaki minded, in truth he loved his brother, very dearly. After all, the weight of the Hoshigaki clan’s fate was riding on the shoulders of the two brothers, and as such, Torasame was fine with being out of the spotlight. Besides, it seemed with all that pressure on Shirosame that the boy was about to snap. Sure enough, Shirosame was discovered to have psychosis, it was then that all attention left Torasame. Even Tora wanted his brother to get better though. While the family toiled with Shirosame’s condition, Tora began his training, knowing that if Shirosame couldn’t continue on, he would have to. Pushing himself harder then ever, Tora began a physical training regime a full year before he was even the appropriate age to enter the academy.

Now while the academy in Kirigakure runs just like any other academy now, they still have a specific rule for the Hoshigakis, no ritual, no graduation. It was the Hoshigaki’s that could not perform their ritual that became the Shark Priests so often heard of. Having entered the academy at the age of five, Torasame spent two years practicing for the required test that would allow him to take the ritual, jealous that his brother was not being put through such tasks. It would not be until later in his life that Torasame understood the ideals behind the ritual, and the real reason Shirosame had such terrible mental disorders.

To Hunt a Hunter Arc

Finally, the day had come when Torasame would be turned upon the sea to find his shark, and his shark teeth. Typically, this meant he had to kill two sharks, but as the clan was suffering at the moment, having lost several more priests the teeth came as a gift from his father, who, for once in Tora’s life, was giving his son respect.

Standing on the edge of a low seaside cliff, Torasame sighed. His entire family was behind him, even multiple academy teachers. Readying the two daggers he held, Tora looked down to see the sea misting the rocks below him. Slowing his breathing down, he leaped. Diving beneath the surface, Tora passed plenty of smaller sharks, nurse and frilled, but that wasn’t what he was looking for. With determination in his eyes, Torasame was hunting a shark worth sharing a body with. As the thoughts passed through his head, he found it. It was a single tiger shark, feasting upon a killed sperm whale. The sight was amazing, how this shark had managed to down a fully grown whale without hunting in a pack was simply awe-inspiring. Knowing this hunter of the sea was distracted, it was simply a matter of placing his daggers just beneath the gills, and holding on.

Not even fifteen minutes after his dive, Torasame returned with the tiger shark, strung across both shoulders, his body buckling under its weight. Without a moment of hesitation, the Priests snapped both of them up, carrying them away to the Temple. Tora never even had the chance to see his family before he left.

The Mindset of the Beast Arc

Spending a full day sitting in a seal was the last thing Torasame had in mind when it came to the Ritual of the Shark, but preparations needed to be made, and Tora needed to remain still. Spending his time gazing upon the dead beast now laid out in front of him, Torasame could not get over it’s raw energy, the energy that would soon be endowed within him. As the ritual came close to commencement, Torasame was overflowing with anticipation. A few hand seals later, and his mind fell into the Illusory world.

As his mind began to take form, Torasame soon realized this illusory world was set under water. Anticipation was soon replaced with Anxiety, he could feel something moving. It was then that his shark form appeared before him, a fearsome creature, but nothing the likes Torasame hadn’t seen before. Without so much as speaking a word to each other, the battle began. For what felt like days Torasame was locked into the losing end of this fight. He did not tire due to where he was, but neither did his opponent. His shark form was faster, stronger, and more fierce. There was little Torasame could do, at his wit’s end, he submitted. With this, his shark form smiled, and the illusory world was gone.

Waking up nearly two weeks later, Torasame opened his eyes to find immediate changes. He had grown, nearly a foot, his skin had became a dark blue, and as he laughed in joy, he could feel his breath rushing through fangs instead of teeth. Somehow, he had succeeded. It was not until the priests told him that it was by submitting to you shark form, and know it was the better of the two of you that the ritual could be completed. While acknowledging his valiant effort to defeat himself, they reminded him to never tell anyone who had not completed the ritual of it’s secrets. With the ritual over, Torasame returned home with a prideful smile. When he arrived however, his mother bore news of another pregnancy, and while Torasame’s success was celebrated, it was short, his conquest having been deflated by his mother’s announcement.

Alone Again Arc

While Torasame may have had great success, his genin years were also over shadow by the upbringing of his new sister, Togisame. While his genin years were prosperous, the rest of the clan’s attention was still divided between dealing with their own elimination and trying to raise their own offspring. During this period of time, even Shirosame, the half-blood prodigy fell away from the limelight. This did however give Torasame some opportunities, including traveling abroad with his new team. While Shirosame and Togisame remained in the village for the protection of the clan, Tora was given the chance to visit the northern regions of the land of lightning. Spending close to a year there, the cold-blooded Hoshigaki vowed never to return, as he was very far from his element, all of his Suiton techniques freezing in the cold weather and doing him little. This also allowed Tora to focus on other aspects, such as his Doton techniques, which were virtually capable of use anywhere, as well as his sword play. Having to rely on these two secondary aspects to his talent, Torasame became even more proficient.

Returning to the village at the age of ten, Torasame passed that year’s round of Chuunin Exams, giving him the option to lead his own team. Although grateful, Torasame declined, choosing to spend more time with his family, hoping to establish a better bond there. For awhile, things seemed to be going well, even Shirosame’s mental outbursts had apparently calmed. However, on Torasame’s fourteenth birthday, Shirosame disappeared. The Hoshigaki clan was crushed, and it was now that all eyes were on Torasame.

Brotherless Arc

The pressure was certainly increased on Torasame’s remaining chuunin years. The family itself was torn between him succeeding as a ninja, and him staying home for the sake of the continuation of the clan. With this reality constantly pressing upon him, it took all of what Torasame was to simply keep a level head. The mindset of a shark was not easily contained and amongst his own turmoil Torasame began to understand what may have happened to his brother, and why the Ritual of the Shark was only given to those who earned it. This also gave Tora a higher appreciation for what his brother had gone through, and perhaps even an understanding as to why Shirosame left. In his heart, Tora knew his brother was alive, and well. Or at least as well as Shirosame could be.

Managing a promotion to Jounin at the age of seventeen Torasame had managed to feel pretty good about himself. It was then that the Hoshigaki elders decided he really wasn’t going to stop his dreams for anything. At that point, the last remaining Shark Priest took Torasame to the temple where he began to undergo Hoshigaki clan training, as well as a whole new level of Kenjutsu training revolving around a small katana, rather then an extremely large weapon. While the clan was happy for Torasame, it seemed the middle child would never remain the star of the show, as only a year later, at the age of eighteen, Shirosame returned.

Underdog To Date Arc

Spending the next six years doing nothing but training, seeing and hearing little from his family, despite how curious he was. He had heard rumors, Shirosame was now a special jounin, and even his younger sister Togisame was a relatively experienced chuunin at the age of fifteen. It seemed the Hoshigaki clan was once again on top, this fact only being affirmed the the fact that Shirosame was eventually promoted to Mizukage, at an early age of twenty-four. An amazing feat it was, Togisame was then promoted later that year to jounin. Two years later, Torasame completed the remainder of his training, and was endowed with Ushio-Waru, or Rip-Tide, a legendary blade passed down through the Hoshigaki clan. As he left the temple, his brother Shirosame immediately appointed him as one of the Seven Swordsmen of the Mist, a very honourable title endowed to special and talented nin alone. While Torasame knew it was mainly because of their brotherhood, the fact remained that he was still an incredible skilled nin.

It was with the Seven Swordsman that Torasame met Hybris Kinkotsu no Kaguya, an equally skilled nin, with all the advantages that the Shikosumyato endowed. She certainly was an adequate rival, and with that initial spark of conflict came an endearment to each other. While they didn’t always necessarily get along, they had the same passions for each other, and decided to start dating. Torasame believed he had found the one; she was even willing to over look his appearance after all. Where everyone else saw a monster or something hideous, she saw something worth loving. Unfortunately, it ended poorly, Shirosame intervening and Hybris going over the deep end. Eventually, Shirosame was killed by none other then the Kaguya herself, Shirosame's sword now all that remains of the great white shark. Torasame hunts for Hybris to this day.
