Welcome to Naruto Roleplay Center! An AU Naruto RP which is currently on its fifth edition, NRC has been around for nearly ten years, with this year being our 12th anniversary! Here on NRC, we pride ourselves on not only our longevity, but having a tight knit community and member base, who are cared for and nurtured by our lovely staff. With that said, we’re always looking to improve on what we’ve already built.
Allowing us to adjust systems when needed, though never taking away from the overall feel of what it means to be a part of the shinobi world. With a host of different ways to make your character diverse and unique being, it can easily be said that there will never be another ninja like yours, as you are an individual. So stay awhile, browse a bit, ask questions, and hopefully when it’s all said and done, you can join the NRC Family as we make history.
A tall, graceful figure, Aki hits all the marks of both of her bloodlines respectively with ab it of a twist. No black hair like a Hyuuga, yet her hair was not parted like a Kaguya either. It was MUCH prettier than that. Flowing silvery hair she kept in a loose ponytail at most times. She didn't have pure white eyes of the typical Byakugan either, though she certainly possessed the gift. Her eyes were a dull grey, though still without normal pupils. The dull contrast and silver, accented by her rather pastel choice of colors led to an otherwise unworldly beauty for the woman.
Attire on and off-duty was usually a loosely tied obi around a shorter than necessary kimono, but underneath she wore wrappings and several standard pieces of gear such as leg holsters and waist packs. It would be too much trouble to constantly replace expensive equipment after using her Kekkei Genkai in battle or even just in training.
Race: Asian Hair: Long, silky, silver Eyes: Dull grey Body: Lithe, voluptuous, athletic Ethnicity: Hi no Kuni
Personality: Sensual, motherly, sexy, and very affectionate until you piss her off. These are the words Aki usually uses to describe herself. In front of others, the woman tends to reserve her wilder side, acting as a proper Hokage, if one with loose morals, but underneath or in the company of trusted people she is flirtatious and usually looking for a good time, whatever that entails. She tries not to let her obscurely mixed bloodline affect her judgement, but an ego matched with an ego is a hard thing to get passed when she's criticized or finds one of her friends being bullied.
In a more combat-oriented scenario, she tends to be more focused, if still a bit lighthearted with banter. Getting reverse-impaled over and over by your own skeleton tends to give you a decent tolerance to pain. She's not modest in the least considering her clothing is usually left in tatters by the end of a spar or battle, so she ignores it or, even better, uses it to her advantage.
Name: Raw Talent - Taijutsu Requirements: Free SA slot (doesn't need to be requested) Description: At times it feels like your better then everyone around you, even if you don't know why.. Without even really trying, you have an easier g rasp of things that others must work hard for, as if your simply more talented than them. It hasn't yet been tempered through experience just yet, but with a bit of work you'll do so. This SA grants up to two of the following, style points, C/S slots. The style points can't be used to bump up a minor or major into a spec, except at creation for a non bloodline RPC. More importantly these are only 'temporarily points or slots' that last only as long as you have the SA. You can choose to do a Special mission to make them 'real', in a similar manner to doing special missions for style points or combat styles, in which case if successful they become real and this sa is slot can be refunded, or you can simply have this SA give benefits to other areas you wish to work on in your next mission/in the future. This SA cannot have you go over the limit allowed for style points, and combat styles.
Name: Shikotsumyaku Requirements:Kaguya Clan Description: Claimed to be the Ultimate in taijutsu abilities by a prominent Konoha missing-nin turned Kage, the Shikotsumyaku is the signature ability of the Kaguya clan. Refereed to as the dead bone pulse, the ShikotsumyakuÃ‚ Â hardens the bearers bones until they are stronger then steel. In addition, it grants them the ability to manipulate their own calcium, allowing them to turn their bodies and bones into weapons through jutsu. The durability of the bones are equal to the rank of the user, capping at S rank.
Name: Natural Predators Requirements:Kaguya Clan Description: Though considered rather brutal and almost feral by many, the taijutsu prowess of the Kaguya clan definitely can't be denied, especially when combined with the more flashy abilities of their bloodline. This limit allows a Kaguya to be free of the restrictions and downsides in all combat styles. This means that they're not restricting in post count, or jutsu or effected by chakra cost as well as dodging any downsides that come from using a combat style or exiting it. this is based on the clans dances, showing they can easily use different forms of fighting seamlessly with their own style.

Special Abilit(y/ies) or Kinjutsu technique(s) wanting: SM for Kinjutsu Scroll of Secrets
Because it's a Missing-nin artifact and I need good plot to introduce this older Kirin. I have the idea in my head and a great amount of prep work already done. Kirin is S Rank, Jounin, and needs a good deed to bring back to the Hokage (Since RPing with myself there would be moot). I just need permission and one or two judges.
Shinobi Info: Amount of Techniques & SA/Kin: Dunno Yet Shinobi's rank: Element & Style:
Special Abilit(y/ies) or Kinjutsu technique(s) wanting: Kaguya/Hyuuga Dual Bloodline
Aki needs a link to Konoha, and her Kaguya half has never been from there. Plus she's going to be Hokage, and a good kage needs SOME connection to the village they're governing. This lets me start her there in her history while expanding her plot. Plus both of these clans are very solid Taijutsu users, which is what I'm aiming for.
Kirra is the sort of person whose body adhered strictly to their lifestyle, and as such when viewed appears very straight-backed and uptight. She stands just shy of six foot, with typical black hair of her clan, though by no means her choice. She did have bright blue eyes though. The Uchiha weren't bred with fashion in their minds, it seems. She does accent it well though, providing just the right amount of TLC into her looks without appearing too girly, but keeping a very feminine aura even in her armor. Her body is quite lean, lithe, curvy, but also dangerous, and stands quite tanned from her time spent outside soaking up the sun's rays Her curves met in just the right places that some might call her sexy or attractive if seen in her more casual outfits.
Her bust was a bit on the large side though, in her opinion, but she recognized that if they were any larger they'd throw off her balance, so it was almost a required size given her heritage. She kept her black, silky hair short, kept in a typical tied-in-the-back style for most occasions. She did add flair to it though, creating a messy spiked look when fashion didn't matter quite as much, like on the job, or a rounded, smooth bundle for formal occasions. Though really, it was short even when let down, only barely meeting the shoulders. Better to not let it snag on branches or caught by a stray hand. Lining that toned body were the scars of several rough encounters with inmates an wild beasts. A few minor scratches here and there, a makeshift knife's wound scarred over on her right shoulder blade almost to the spine. Two prominent, but small scars nestled just above her belly where she'd been impaled and the medic-nin hadn't quite the chakra to heal the scarring. Whether her body said it or not though, she didn't lose many battles.
Her clothing depended on what mood she was in and where she was going. Missions and job-related things saw her in very typical shinobi gear. Since she was built for speed over power, but had both, she catered to a light, but durable armor, which permitted her full range of her joints and protection for vital areas she normally needed watching. It had plenty of room for her varied array of weapons, all built upon the ideology she followed about being ready for anything. It was also void of any excess metal, meaning it made less noise when moving, deciding that finely crafted leather pouches and rawhide ties were more efficient than more mass-produced equipment gear.
Race: Human Hair: Black Eyes: Blue (Red with Sharingan) Body: Lean, athletic, and light skin tone Ethnicity: Land of Lightning
Personality: Kirin is one of those people you'd expect to come off as extremely strict and demanding, maybe a bit bitchy too. But in truth she's quite gentle, unless you're a criminal. That's also assuming you catch her off-duty and don't nitpick about extremely small details, which is a pet peeve of hers. She's smart, naturally so, and loves long walks and socializing normally. She speaks with a well-educated set of manners all the time, but not in an uncomfortable way. Really she could be quite charming if people got to see her like this all the time. Often though, she tries her best to blend in with the common citizens. Not out of shyness, more out of a need to separate herself from her bloodline. On the job though, her face changes completely. Hard-worker, diligent, and sometimes a bit too by-the-book, all in the name of her rather well-built sense of justice.
She's strong both physically and mentally, and it's all from the experience she's gained from her years of self-improvement. She may seem like an iron box on the outside, but get her in the hot springs with some tea or sake and she melts right back into the casual Kirin people tend to overlook. Not that she minds, for she also learned early on to value the friends you find, especially the ones that found you instead of the other way. Those are the most loyal kind, and allow her to be just as loyal back. Her dual sense of purpose stems from her skills of her previous job, that of being able to choose correctly the proper method of executing a plan, from interrogation, to disabling opponents, or even going as far as eliminating a threat.
She stands by a theme of "a tool for every occasion", and so she believes heavily in having multiple means out of a situation. The whole reason she settles on basic tools is the expense of using more advanced ones. This apparently doesn't apply to her two tanto. Which she keeps sharp and clean at all times. This theme she follows became almost a creed in her duties as a prison warden, where multiple strategies can benefit from different outcomes. Should an inmate be interrogated? Do they require a bit of persuasion? How do you follow-up an escape or capture, through disabling the inmate, or simply stopping his movement. Or does the situation call for lethal force, or more subtle, stealthy movements to ensure success?
This kind of mentality encroaches not just on her job, but her normal thinking too, until she often calculates the shortest path to her destination well before the trip, and has her equipment prepared mentally a week in advance, or even as simple as deciding upon whether to drink sake with a meal that night when waking up. This makes her somewhat anal, and easily irritated when things don't go according to plan. Thinking into things too much can also make her think too far ahead on simple things. Her social side also doesn't always kick in when in public settings, further making her seem distant and edgy. If there were a few things she completely warmed up to though, it would be chocolate and hot spring visits, though not at the same time.
Some people have even assumed that her lack of physical contact with others makes her quite sensitive to touch as well, but this is mostly bullshit. If anything, it teaches her to not be as open about affections, even if she's not afraid to SHOW that she can be affectionate. It's an odd mixture of "Mingling doesn't help my job" and "I want to be noticed" blended in, going off of her need to be respected for her own skills instead of her clan's. Though it must be said that because of her clan, she grew up liking the color red, which didn't help her differentiate herself much.

Name: True Genius (Approval gained Here ) Requirements: A bloodline, must not have "Fruits of Hard Work", At Character Creation Description: All people are born with different. They have different looks, different intelligence and different skills. However, in every generation, there are always a few people who stand out. Not only are they more skilled than the average person, everything seems to come naturally to them. Of course, the world of shinobi is no different in this way: there are average people, failures and geniuses. Those born into a bloodline, in addition to generally having greater ability than others, also receive greater gifts from nature and more often, since bloodlines are created to cultivate powerful shinobi. With this ability, all learning requirements are reduced by 20%, and bloodline learning requirements are reduced by 40%. Minimal post reduction is 1, but the final amount of posts can't be lower than 1. Additionally, they get a boost to their focus skill: 50% stamina for taijutsu; 25% chakra pool and hand seal speed for ninjutsu; 20% chakra pool and hand seal speed and 10% chakra control for genjutsu; 50% chakra control for ijutsu; 50% charka control for puppetry; 25% hand seal speed and chakra control for fuuinjutsu.
Name: True Genius - The Inner Genius Requirements: True Genius SA (Gained with True Genius, isn't multistaged) Description: Genius comes in many shape and forms, people shine in areas were others don't have the ability. These naturally talented people excel with ease, pushing the standards and raising the bar, those with bloodlines tend to be more naturally gifted. These people have certain skills based on their combat style, but only for the styles they have as a major or spec.
Ninjutsu: Those with Ninjutsu are masters of the hand signs, fast, with all the motions coming naturally to them, they bend the natures elements to their will. These masters gain a single additional basic primary element, upon gaining this.
Name: Raw Talent Requirements: Free SA slot (doesn't need to be requested) Description: At times it feels like your better then everyone around you, even if you don't know why.. Without even really trying, you have an easier g rasp of things that others must work hard for, as if your simply more talented than them. It hasn't yet been tempered through experience just yet, but with a bit of work you'll do so. This SA grants up to two of the following, style points, C/S slots.

This SA cannot have you go over the limit allowed for style points, and combat styles.
[*]Name: Bunshin no Jutsu - Clone Technique Type: Ninjutsu Rank: E (Basic) Requirements: None Description: Bunshin no Jutsu is a Ninjutsu technique which every ninja learns at the Ninja Academy. The Bunshin technique creates a copy of the ninja without substance. The copy resembles the ninja in every way. This clone can function as a distraction or as means to confuse one's opponent. As soon the Bunshin gets attacked or comes into contact with an opponent, it will disperse.
[*]Name: Henge no Jutsu - Transformation Technique Type: Ninjutsu Rank: E (Basic) Requirements: None Description: Henge no Jutsu is a Ninjutsu technique which every ninja learns at the Ninja Academy. Henge allows the ninja to transform themselves into any person or object. This allows the ninja to move with stealth or to trick their opponents. However, it does not grant one the properties of said objects or skills of that person, meaning turning into a weapon will not allow you to cut an opponent and turning into a dog will not give you a great sense of smell.
This technique can also be used in conjunction with someone, who may a person, a pet or a summoning creature, in which case it is called Konbi Henge (Combination Transformation). However, its principles remain the same.
[*]Name: Kawarimi no Jutsu - Body Substitution Technique Type: Ninjutsu Rank: E (Basic) Requirements: None Description: Kawarimi no Jutsu is a basic Ninjutsu technique. When in danger the ninja will quickly substitute themself with another nearby object. This can be a block of wood or even another person. This allows the ninja to quickly flee and hide while the original object takes the brunt of their opponents attack. Naturally, it won't work with another person unless their skill gap is enormous, and the object to replace oneself with must be close in size and weight to the ninja themselves. This technique must be set up a little ahead when fighting skilled opponents, otherwise, you may end up getting struck because you wouldn't have enough time to use it.
[*]Name: Nawanuke no Jutsu - Escaping Skill Type: Taijutsu Rank: D Requirements: None Description: A very basic skill, without which a shinobi would become the laughing stock of the village. It allows them to escape ropes and similar simple restraints. However, advanced knots and heavier restraints than a simple rope may be too much for a basic skill like this to handle.
[*]Name: Kai - Release Type: Ninjutsu Rank: D Requirements: None Description: A very useful technique that dispels or prevents the effects of genjutsu in its early stages. To perform it, the user only needs to hold their hands in a tiger hand seal and channel some chakra into it. A lower-level genjutsu will be dispelled without any harm to the user. This can also be done on someone else, in which case the user must touch them before releasing the technique. However, it is a low-level ninja skill, as there are more effective ways of countering genjutsu. This will only dispel genjutsu of B-rank or below.
[*]Name: Kinobori no Waza - Act of Tree Climbing Type: Ninjutsu Rank: C Requirements: None Description: A skill that every self-respecting shinobi must have. It is based on concentrating chakra to the soles of one's feet and using it to stick to objects, which would allow one to walk on vertical surfaces and even upside down. This is also often used as chakra control training, since the soles of the feet are said to be the hardest place to control your chakra.
[*]Name: Suimen Hokou no Waza - Act of Water Surface Walking Type: Ninjutsu Rank: B Requirements: Kinobori Description: A more advanced technique than Kinobori, it allows one to walk on water or other similar liquid or amorphous objects. It is used in a similar fashion to its predecessor, but the shinobi must also release a constant flow of chakra into the water to keep themselves on its surface. It is often used as advanced chakra control training, since it takes the same basic concept as tree climbing technique and kicks it up a notch.
History: Kirin began life as an Uchiha, grew to learn about the heritage of the Uchiha, and was known as an Uchiha for her childhood. As soon as she was old enough to understand all of this, she hated it. If a clan built upon their deeds knew so much about learning through experience, then why was she being judged on things she hadn't even done? It didn't matter that some of those deeds were extremely good. She hated the prospect of being judged on qualities she hadn't earned or just plain didn't have. Her father might have been your typical Uchiha stock, but he did give her a strong sense of justice and let her develop her own sensibilities and morals. I helped greatly in her youth, for she graduated the academy in Kumo early, trained hard to increase her individual skills without relying on her clan's background. Heck, she didn't even know if she COULD use the Sharingan. She might be defective.
She was a social child though, which helped her decision to work outside the village later on. She had friends, though she soon learned that letting friends come to you, instead of forcing yourself upon people, worked better for her, so long as she wasn't just plain unsociable. It taught her that people have specific responses to invasions into their personal space, or just inside their comfort zone. True enough, she found that she liked the mental puzzle of psychology as much as the teachings of her academy teachers and following Jonin sensei. She asked the "hard" questions most of the time and made herself known as an intelligent individual, though obviously not attempting to be a "smart ass", as much as possible. Her intelligence was soon noted by the mentors, though often jokingly brushed off the observations as being a good listener.
Luckily, she never grew into her heritage the way others did. She found that life had more vibrancy when peace was achieved over war. She sought out non-confrontational solutions to issues before resorting to violence, but she never backed away from the latter if needed. She proved a capable fighter and expert with basic ninja tools, trying her best to relate it to personal skill over inherited natural ability. She even taught some of her friends, to try and help diffuse the relation between the two further. OF course, none of this really matured her to the level she needed to be at. Not if she wanted to completely individualize herself. She was as dedicated to family still, but while she strived to achieve attention through skills,
Eventually, instead of progressing into the Chunin exams, she took up a job outside the gates at a prison, even began denying her birth clan's last name for a time. And she absolutely loved it there. She made money keeping people who had done bad things in line. She made friends who taught her through their own experiences how things were done, but let her do things her own way, and thus judged her solely on her own missteps and triumphs. She learned the most logical steps to problems, the right moments to use either force or persuasion on prisoners to get them to behave or get in line. She learned discipline, right and wrong, and strayed from what little corruption there was in the prison because of her overwhelming sense of justice. Of course, a clan's bloodline heritage is useful for such things, especially hers, and she used it, but only as a supplement to her own abilities. She took the themes of natural talent and genius of hard work almost in tandem to create a mix of the two she could work with well.
It changed her, but didn't erase her as a person like she might have feared. More, it gave her a reason to go home every day and feel good about what she did. It allowed her to enjoy her time away from her jobs all the more, and developed her personal skills towards that. Though easily seen as a strict, law-enforcing person, it only took a little bit of time until you truly saw just how wonderfully complex a person she was, if you could get past the occasional rants about work or justice, the slight stiffness in her humor initially, and the way she somewhat berates her otherwise lovely body, claiming it could be "Just a step better". It also helped if you knew her before her days at the prison, but the girl everyone knew was still there, and enjoyed a relaying day at the hot springs just as much as she had before.
Currently, as she's been released from duty as prison warden, she's looking into becoming ANBU or some sort of Hunter nin to really relate to her skill set. She still refers to herself by her false identity, though she's no longer afraid to admit her heritage in light of her own personal skill backing up her bloodline abilities. She can properly add her own piece of history to the clan without having to rely on past glories, or past falls. She plans to overcome both her goals and that of her clan and make a true name for herself, perhaps even bring true peace to the world. Lofty goals, for sure, but if you don't aim high, you'll never know how it feels to fly.
