Kimura Hotaru: The Lost Samurai

Post by Elendril on Thu Dec 10, 2015 6:32 pm



Name: Kimura Hotaru
Nickname/Alias: The Ronin/ The Lost Samurai
Renowned Alias: The Lost Samurai
Age: 18
Gender: (Male
Physical Appearance:


Kimura has Middle-long brown hair. This is something that he inherited from his father. His hair being quite long and tending to be in the way of his face as well as dropping down the back of his neck. Kimura also where a black eye-patch. This is not because he is blind but because he likes to make his opponents think he is. The eye patch is made of a special material so that he is able to see threw it but people are not able to see threw it from the other side. Hirashi also where’s a uncommon and original blue suit that he had given to him by his father whit the family name and crest on it. As Kimura’s clothes tend to resemble that of a Samurai being a reason for his nickname. Though it fits his way of life as he is a follower of Bushido. Body wise Kimura is tall for most ninja as well as the fact that Kimura is in perfect shape with his body having a very lean muscle build.
Personality:


Kimura is a very special individual as he is not like most ninja in the way that he acts. Foremost Kimura is a very silent person most times tending to only speak when he feels the action to do so. As Kimura is one who feels that his physical actions speak way louder than his words can. As the saying actions speak louder than words is one that he has token to the heart. As he knows that lots of people may talk or say things that they will never actually pull off. And he is not a person who likes to just talk about things. Since Kimura is the type of person that if he says he is going to kill you he means it’s very much so. This is due to the fact that Kimura is one who sees his word as his bond. And if he says it he means it. Now Kimura unlike other ninjas follows the code of bushido like a Samurai.

Following the first virtue of Bushido, Kimura is Righteous. This is the fact that he makes sure that all of his actions justified as Kimura knows that he is being judged in this life and does not want to do anything that he feels is not good in the eyes of his people. As Kimura feels that the ancestors of his family are watching over him and every single action that he does. They are the ones judging how well Kimura will be treated in the afterlife. And so for this reason Kimura will never do anything unless he has a good reason for doing his action. This means Kimura won’t so much as even kill a fly unless he feels that he has a righteous reason as to why the fly must die. Though Kimura still has no problem in the act of taking life as he knows that obstacles in his way must be taken down in order for him to advance in his life like any great warrior knows.

Kimura is also very courage’s, due to the fact that it is also another one of the seven virtues of the code of Bushido. This is due to the fact that a true warrior should never buckle under fear and must face all odds. And do to this Kimura have come to accept pain as though it was just a part of life. Rather this pain is his own physical pain or emotional pain. Kimura is one who has learned to take the death of his friends and family members, as well as being strong enough to take action or have moral courage. Kimura has even come to voicing his opinions or acting right even in the face of popular opposition, shame, scandal or discouragement.  And so due to this Virtue Kimura tends to not be one never who backs down.

Another one of the seven virtues of the code of Bushido is that of Charity. This is the act of giving help to those that are in need, not because you feel better than them. But because out of the goodness of your own heart you want to help them.  This being the reason that Kimura tends to help others around them though sometimes it seems he is only doing it because it seems right. Kimura knows that he must help others in order for him to get help by his Ancestors or the greater beings of the world. This virtue being the reason that Kimura is very helpful to the older and younger ninja’s. As he knows that one day he may also need their help in the future. Kimura would even go as far as to give his life to save another person as long as he feels that they deserve it. Though this is not something that can easily be earned in the eyes of Kimura.

Probably the biggest virtue in the code of Bushido to Kimura is that of Respect. This is due to the fact that Kimura is a person who does not take disrespect in any form. This is mainly due to the fact that Kimura is a person who gives everyone respect until they have given him a reason to not do so. As he knows that one must give respect in order for them to earn it from others. And if one does not show you the respect that you deserve. They most likely think of you as lower than them. And Kimura is not one to let people treat him as though he is below them in anyway. Nor does he decide to treat anyone as though they are below him unless he feels they had lost his respect. The Virtue of Honor also with the virtue of respect. As Kimura keeps his honor at all times never doing anything that he feels would cause him to lose it in the eyes of others.

The last virtue of the code of Bushido is that of Loyalty. This being another big one in the eyes of Kimura, as he is one who will never betray his village unless he has a righteous reason as to do so. Or betray those he holds dear to him as he feels that it will cause him to lose his honor and if he loses his honor he will lose the respect of his family. And this is being one of the biggest things that Kimura does not want to see happen to himself. As Honor, Respect, and loyalty are the three biggest virtues to Kimura and the ones that he follows no matter what. As Kimura sees the code of bushido as his way of life no matter what other ninjas make think of the code he feels that it is the best way for one to live their life. And sees it as one of the greatest things to follow.

Beliefs/Religion: Kimura believes in the way way of Bushido and the unspoken law of the old ways. He is a true warrior by heart who believes in live by the sword Die by the sword. As Kimura has come to see Bushido as not just a practice that some practice, but as a way of life that every true warrior should follow. As Kimura only knows the sword and believes that it is more then life its self.
Country of Birth:  Wind




History:

Birth  
Deep in the land of Wind in one of the few oasis that it held a small group of Shinobi would go over there normal rituals as another one of them would be born into the world. A knew baby boy who would be given the name of Kimura Hotaru. His father Zanza one of the heirs to the Hotaru clan as well as a Shogun for the current Daimyo of wind. He was well respected and known throughout the land of Wind as well as even some of the other countries considering he tended to do a lot of work for the wind Daimyo. Now his mother was just a normal civilian of the land of the Wind who game from a family with a little bit of money as well as was High up in the lands political matters with her father being on the council helping the Daiymo handle day to day situations in the land. This sort of made this newborn Hotaru child kind of a important figure. To the point that the Wind Daimyo would be his God father.  

Youth (5-12)
Kimura took after his father even at a very young age. He instantly had a love for the art of the sword and wanted to learn to wild them like the masters of the blade. As Kimura would often see his father and GodFather Shimada the Wind Daimyo spar as well as train often with their swords. As the two of them were often stated to be the two best swordsman in the land of the wind, maybe even in all of the lands. And so seeing his love for the art of swords his father and Godfather decided that it would be best for them to start teaching him the ways at even a young age. And so even at the age of around 7 Kimura had already started learning the Code of Bushido which some said was the belief and way of the Samurai. But it was a code of honor that both Zanza and Shimada followed and felt that any good warrior should also follow. This taught Kimura honor and respect at a young age and taught him the true way that a sword should be used.
 
Teen (13-15)
In his teenage years Kimura tended to spend most of his time away from the rest of his clan and family often held deep up in the Baguoashisu Oasis away from everyone else. Since Kimura was a member of the Hotaru family he had a deep connection with bugs and so he tended to like to be around them. Plus the fact that not many people tended to make their way to the Baguoashisu Oasis as they tended to be scared of the bugs and didn’t want to end up on the wrong side of one of them. Plus it was also the perfect place for Kimura to practice his Sword training since Shimada and his dad tended to be too busy with the matters of the land to have time to actually personally go and train with him. Thought they did tend to help him out whenever they got the chance to do so. Often giving him task that almost seemed impossible but he usually managed to get what they wanted out of the training sessions.  

Now unlike most kids his Age Kimura tended to spend a lot of his time hunting you could say. Now he wasn’t necessarily hunting for game or sport, but as a way for him to become a better swordsman as he often fought creatures that most wouldn’t even dream of going to fight like the bladed bug that stood on two feet just like a human with blades for arms. This being one of the most deadly bugs in the Bagu Oasis and one that even some of the older members of the Hotaru family did not like to deal with. But Kimura took fighting them as a game and loved to do so. As Shimada had taught him that he should learn to see his sword not as a weapon or a item but as an extension of himself like it was actually his arm. And the Bladed bugs had no choice but to move as that being the blade was their actual arm. This made them great swordsman and a bug that should be feared by many. But even as early as the age of 12 Kimura was already hunting them and taking them out single handedly.  

This showed a lot of the family and even his godfather the Daimyo that Kimura had a lot of progress and so they decided to send him to the capital so that he could meet some of the higher shinobi in the land and start to better his training. This means that Kimura would have to leave his family and his home in the oasis but he figured that if it was a way for him to become better then he might as well take the opportunity. Plus Shimada was talking about adding Kimura to his personal guard as well as even giving him the title of Shogun once he became of age. That being a great honor especially since Kimura would probably be the youngest Shogun in the Land of Wind if he was given the title. With that Kimura packed up his bags and headed with his godfather to the capital of the land of Wind so that he could begin his training.  

Young Adult (16-18)
Once reaching the capital Kimura would be placed in a school that focused solely on teaching the art of the sword. Shimada felt that it be best if he got to start actually training with others instead of just bugs, plus the academy was the best in the land of wind and would teach Kimura a lot of things that he could not learn on his own. Now the Academy wasn’t to say really Kimura's style as it was focused more on the traditional style of the way of the Samurai, and taught a lot of structure to Kimura and the other students. A lot of which Kimura wasn’t into. But the teachers were some of the best in the lands and gave Kimura a challenge that being something that he enjoyed as the Academy tended to always push Kimura to be a better swordsman.  

Now while also in the Capital Shimada had Kimura learning about the duties and task of Shogun as well as the council. This way Kimura would have an idea as to what his life would be like once he was of age to take his position. Shimada would even have Kimura do training exercises with his guards so that he could learn to better protect as well as be able to better handle himself in group combat. Through the capital living was different than living in the Oasis was. So it was something that Kimura had to adjust to. Kimura would stay in the capital and continue his training up until the night before his birthday the day that he would be give the title of Shogun. On this night lies betrayal and the breaking of the code of Bushido would happen as Zanza was set up to be killed by the Daimyo Shimada who he called brother. And so on this night Kimura fled the capital and began he plot to take down the lord of the wind.

If you'd like anything higher than Gennin Equivalent or Academy Student Equivalent then you need an RP Sample. Otherwise, approved at either of those ranks! ^_^

Yes post a RP Sample. Lead by example. Only AS starts are allowed to disregard a sample. I'm sure you have an old post somewhere you can repost here as a sample. Stop being lazy. Everything else appears fine, but if your truly gonna have this much of a connection to the Daimyo then you will have to make his NPC. This is only because of the connection he has to your character's father. Yes he will be S rank with the jutsu's of a ninja.
