Daichi largely accepts the false identity created for him by the village as he recalls very little out of his previous memories. These past few years in the academy have been especially important to him as even with the fantastic work put into creating his false memories Daichi feels these memories are distant.

Daichi enjoys the present and has a passion for finding and adopting new hobbies. Gardening, sailing and fishing are especially close to his heart and by these hobbies Daichi has learned the value of patience above rash action. Daichi is seen by his colleges as a rather lazy individual as Daichi is slow to commit himself into action and often prefers for problems to solve themselves rather than interfere.

For example; while on a beach Daichi would prefer to float on the water rather than swim or dive, Daichi would prefer to sunbathe rather than engage in a complicated game of flying ball. Daichi has nothing against flying ball, he actually likes the game but the prospect of relaxing is much more tempting to him then the prospect of action.

There is no denying Daichi is lazy however even this laziness has a reason; Daichi looks at his way of the Shinobi and his way of life in general just as he would view his hobbies. By committing to action Daichi has to commit himself entirely and whatever action he takes does not only have a consequence it is also irreversible.
For example; while cooking Daichi is faced with the option of ether cooking by the recipe or making changes. Cooking by recipe has the greatest chance of producing a pleasing dish while making changes carries ether the possibility of improvement or disaster.

To remain loyal to the recipe means to operate by a plan, to administrate change is an irreversible action for good or for bad. Therefor to make changes to a dish can only be done when one is cooking with the intention to experiment with the dish, when cooking for the sake of eating the dangers of change are too great to justify a break from the recipe.

To let problem solves themselves is better than to interfere as interference adds complication and complication creates a more complicated problem. The more complicated a matter is the more likely it is to go wrong and thus the goal with any problem is to reduce cockup potential. Only if the problem can only lead to disaster justifies direct interference however to Daichi's mind few problems are so.

He enjoys contributing to his comrades efforts and thwarts those of his enemies whenever he can afford it. Daichi tries to avoid conflict as in his mind it is a complication and likes to solve his problems in a peaceful uneventful way rather than in a clumsy clash of blows which could go either way. He does not shrink from his duty as a warrior however he does not encourage fighting just because it is his profession.

Daichi also as has a personal motive in avoiding conflict since conflict threatens his peace of mind and allows him to be more easily exited and influenced into action instead of careful thought taking the priority. The reason for this unknown to him is his blood, because this problem Daichi has actually become more interested in ways to avoid fighting, ways to avoid blows and ways to avoid stupidity.

Daichi views Taijutsu as he views cooking; one must always keep to the plan of attack and be ready for things to go wrong. The pace and timing of cooking just as it is with Taijutsu are imperative for victory.

Consistency, planning and vigilance are the keys to Taijutsu in Daichi's mind.

Daichi views Ninjutsu as he views sailing; one must always keep in mind the destination. To sail a ship requires constructing a boat and building the Jutsu must be done with care, revision and precision. One the boat is built one must gain the experience to sail it and that can only be gained by learning and practice. In the same way a Ninjutsu requires experience in its casting and a sense of navigation not only to the target but also through the channels of chakra inside the body. Finally to reach the destination requires knowledge of the currents and weather, an understanding of the journey and its goal and constant readiness in case something goes wrong.

Knowledge of the surroundings, an understanding of the enemy and of oneself and vigilance are the keys to Ninjutsu in Daichi's mind.

Daichi views Genjutsu as he views fishing; the location must be a location where fish reside and therefor have an interest. The water is a natural habitat to the fish and therefor the knowledge of a target's natural habitat is vital, while fish cannot reside outside water and therefor discussing land is useless they may reside in varying distances from the shore and at different depth's. To know an enemy Shinobi's favored environment is in a restaurant is the first step, to know an enemy Shinobi's favorite environment is in a Ramen restaurant is the second step and to know at which times and regularity the enemy goes to it is the last step. By reaching for the target in its natural habitat once catches the target in its least prepared state of mind. Industrial fishing in fish pools allows complete control by the owner over the pool and therefor the fish, to control the Ramen restaurant is to control the target.

The bait for fishing must tempt the fish's senses and convince him to take it. In genjutsu knowing what the target likes allows the positioning of bait, understanding the targets sense of caution is vital in order to determine if an overpowering bait will push the target into taking it or make it sucpicous; sometimes a common bait the target would not be surprised to encounter such as loose change on the pavement near that Ramen restaurant which could help pay for the meal is more effective than a free, expensive, delicious and paid for Ramen meal on the counter as it does not raise the targets suspicions. (In this case the theory as to be revised since a Shinobi is normally more intelligent than the average fish… with some exceptions here and there)

Patience is then both simple and vital. If the place and the bait are laid well the target will take them, action only adds complication and therefor risk of failure. To move the fishing rod will alarm the fish as surely as would moving the Ramen meal or the change closer to the target would alarm the Shinobi.
Finally the timing and the ability to take hold of the rod the moment the target enters the trap is the deciding factor of all work. Act too soon and you will scare off the Fish, act to late and the fish might break free. It is best to allow the target to pick up the Ramen meal and allowing him to taste it instead of releasing the explosive tag the moment he is above it rather than do so when he is merely examining it or while he is eating it and may notice the tag below the pork. Encourage a sense of normality and the target will have no reason to be suspicious however to leave things to time for too long increases the chances that the target will sport something wrong.

Knowledge and control of the environment, knowledge of the target, patience, timing and vigilance are the keys to success in Genjutsu in Daichi's mind.

Combat genjutsu to daichi is not so different from the application of Ninjutsu, true Genjutsu is practiced independently in order to try and win without battle and is therefore long term rather than short term.





History

Daichi was not always named this way; since his birth he has received at least three names however no memory of the previous ones now remains.
Daichi was born in the land of waves fourteen years ago, nothing else is known about his origins other than this fact. When he was probably about two years of age he was forcibly taken from his village by the "special unit" of Kumogakure as a part of their program to create a Shinobi capable of hosting the mighty eight tailed beast and controlling it.

It is presumed that around one hundred individuals where taken like Daichi from their homes, many small fishing villages where destroyed during this time so it is likely that the children were taken from these villages and that they were wiped out to conceal the deed.
Daichi and many others where brought up to become the perfect shinobi envisioned by this program and its creator Sadonaga. The facility did not only train these youths, it also changed their bodies to be more compatible with the purpose of being a host to the eight tales sometimes resulting in success but more often resulting in failure and death.

The eight year training process left most of the subjects dead however the goal had been completed. The survivors were ordered to fight and die until only the most worthy remained; only Daichi remained from this experience however not everything had gone as the special unit had expected.
The land of the waves after the previous Great Shinobi wars saw many bearers of blood line traits flee into their lands and mingle with the population fearing destruction by the hands of those who had suffered at the hands of the Shinobi in these bloody wars. Most of these bloodlines died out ether by time or by extermination at the hands of their persecutors. Daichi in the course of three long days of fighting underground coming very near to death both due to injury and to a lack of food, water and sleep awakened such a long dead bloodline. Why had it reawakened? Was it out of chance, the designs of the facility or due to an act by the divine? No one knew but the power of this ability contributed both to his victory then and the massacre to come.

Following Daichi's victory the eight tales was sealed inside him however the seal used was a rather weak one since the facility was eager to test the eight tales power. At first it seemed that Daichi was able to control the demon however in truth Daichi thirsty to take bloody vengeance against the staff of the facility relinquished control over his body to the beast to that end, only the logical and tactical thinking process he was conditioned to follow kept the beast in check.
Instead of a rampage the beast was forced to conduct its destruction in a systematic, organized and planned way.

Moving from place to place in the facility the beast was able to kill nearly everyone in the facility by trickery and surprise until it was confronted by Sadonaga and the remaining facility staff. In the ensuing battle all the remaining facility staff where killed however Sadonaga prevailed over the beast leaving it immobile. The arrival of a force from Kumogakure prevented Sadonaga from taking the eight tales however he escaped by canceling the binding Jutsu he had cast on the eight tales. The beast still not in full control over its host's body could not transfer any more chakra and in the short battle against the force from Kumogakure it was overcome with relatively few losses to the force.

Daichi was taken to Kumogakure where the seal was strengthened to prevent such a takeover. Only a few knew of his identity and among these few a debate into whether to kill or keep Daichi as the host of the eight tales resulted in a decision to retain him due to the fear that no other host would be found however most of Daichi's memories where erased and replaced with false ones to encourage loyalty to Kumogakure.
After half a year of rehabilitation Daichi was assigned to the academy as a transfer student. Daichi believes from the memories given to him that he came from the land of the waves and that he was orphaned following an attack on his village by a band of rouge Shinobi. Since that bloody day his greatest dream was to become a Shinobi so he may protect himself from such carnage and that he went across the land of the waves searching for teachers and knowledge.

Eventually according to these memories after years of traveling from place to place he met a Shinobi from the village who after taking note of Daichi's talents trained him for a time before sending him to Kumogakure. Daichi was made to feel that he owes everything to the village and that the village is his home.
Daichi joined the academy when he was ten years old and seemed to learn things without even trying. Unknown to Daichi he had been taught many of those things in the facility since while memories of this time no longer remained the experience of learning did. Despite his success Daichi remained in the academy two extra years due to his failings in the written examinations.

Passing the graduation test has finally realized his dream to become a shinobi, Daichi now feels a strong sense of gratitude to Kumogakure and desires to serve the village and live in it until his death.



Tailed Beast: Gyūki, the eight tales
Clan: Unknown

Weapons/Tools:Daichi is more comfortable with the special Kirigakure Kunai then with the normal ones and has a number in his possession. These Kunai where actually obtained by Daichi while in the facility as he combated his colleges there, it was decided by the village to have Daichi keep these blades by altering his memories of them as items he picked up during his travels; as physically engaging centers of memory they add authenticity to the false memories given to him by the village.

Other than the simple normal equipment Daichi takes with him many maps, books, herbs and all manner of item many of them unstandardized. Daichi likes having as many resources he can take with him so he may be ready for any eventuality.

Chakra Type: Wind
Kekkei Genkai:The Shada
Description Of Your KG: The Shada was once the power of a long forgotten bloodline to command their own blood. This power was well known for its ability to mold into projectiles and swords and for its ability to sustain the user through much damage.

The users of the Shada where especially infamous for their brutality since only by bloodshed would this power awaken. Because of this users of the Shada where hated throughout the Shinobi world and where eventually hunted down to extinction. Only a few survivors remained and these where without exceptions those who desired no part in their peoples madness and wanted only to live peacefully.

As the blood diluted with time it seemed its only inheritance was a genetic mutation which ironically slowed the healing process of some wounds. In Daichi's case bloodshed alone while it does awaken this power partially is not enough, the only way for him to reach the same heights as his ancestors is to reach a state of bloodthirstiness which would endanger the sanity of any human with no exception.
This happened to Daichi during the massacres in the facility and was the reason why despite years of training the eight tails found it far easier to take control over his body.

The disease in Daichi's case is more serious than what it was for others of his blood since he has awakend the Shada but no longer possess the fury to use its powers. the eight tail's chakra protects Daichi from some of these effects however there is a marked slowness in the healing of wounds which are not life threatening and Daichi seems to possess more scars then is normal since these do not properly heal.

Wounds tend to bleed more than normal for others and as a result serious wounds could be incredibly dangerous as they could cause Daichi to lose too much blood while having no external way of replacing it (The Shada blood is incompatible with all other types and a conflict between them inside a human body would have disastrous and most likely fatal consequences) When Daichi was in the facility the disease being weaker at the time however he did not at first possess the protection of the eight tales, the greater gravity of wounds encouraged Daichi to find ways to avoid being hit in the first place as the alternative was death.
If Daichi sees blood he becomes more serious in his behavior and potentially more emotionally affected by events then what he would be otherwise.

In extreme cases of great carnage he is likely to become more aggressive and see an increase in stamina and willpower should he be in combat (The Shada contains damage taken in combat and the emotional element grants him a greater sense of purpose thus allowing him to take the pain)
To those who look at Daichi when the Shada takes effect Daichi will grow red and his heart beat will increase. Emotion mainly of the negative kind arouses the Shada, Daichi's ancestors enjoyed a genjustsu ability they could use to deter and frighten their enemies; Daichi does not possess this ability.




Signature Techniques
Daichi likes to use Jutsu types in collaboration with each other however among the three classes of Jutsu he favors the Ninjutsu as the most adaptive form of combat. Genjutsu is a valuable strategic form of warfare for him however its uses to him are mainly outside battle as a means to avoid combat or win it without needing to fight. Taijutsu while Daichi does train in its art is the least developed among the three jutsu's since to Daichi it is the least useful in terms of usability. Daichi is able to perform the basic aspects of Taijutsu however he has no signature and little style dedicated to it.
Daichi enjoys using Shuriken based Jutsu mainly because of they are open to potentially limitless interpretation and variation and because they offer a simple chakra saving attack ability.

Daichi is fascinated by medical Jutsu however for the time being he views it as far too difficult to study and too limited in its usefulness; this view may change with age. Thanks to gardening Daichi is at least sensible enough to know what he really should not eat…

  • Kasumi Juusha no Jutsu: creates a host of false attackers
  • Kokohi no Jutsu: Changses the apperance of a near by object
  • Kori Shinchuu no Jutsu: causes target to travel around in circles
  • Raigen Raikouchuu: creates a blinding flash of light
  • Kanashibari no Jutsu: Restrains a target for a short period of time
  • Kage Shuriken no Jutsu: hides a Shuriken in the shadow of another
  • Sōshuriken no Jutsu: Allows control of Shuriken's flight by the use of a Ninja String
  • Shinkūken: Creates a gust of wing while using a blade, can stop incoming projectiles
  • Shunshin no Jutsu: a common technique of fast travel Daichi uses it to deliver Shuriken attacks from multiple directions while escaping counter attack
  • Gen'ei Tajū Shuriken: Replicates Shuriken while in flight, ideally to be used by three Shinobi as a collaborative technique.

So begins...

In the middle of a forest clearing, a group of four can be seen. The team seemed to be training with the sparring method, one on one.

The taller one of the team, seemed to merely observe the other three in a calculative way and seemed to take mentally notes. 'Prishe.. More thoughtful and observant, not one to jump into the fro without a plan.' She glanced at Benkei. 'However Benkei still remains competitive and quiet the opposite of his opponent. He seems to go for more of a offensive move because of his forward style..' She then watched Nishimaru. 'A powerful opponent, defiantly with the special blood line, he is observant, similar to Prishe.. As well as rational. A nice trait the both had..lazy though." she mused. As she spoke, she started to think of ways and methods to improve the cons and pros, but to also unite their trust. It seems that the Prishe and Benkei have a thing for drawing back from certain people, even Nishimura, but not to the same extent. From what she saw from Daichi was that he was more loyal and enjoyed finding ways to lean or to allow people to lean on him in any way. Nevertheless. They all needed work.

'I can't deny though that they progress so quickly however..' She mused, pleased. 'Very talented.' Yes, Its only been a month or so, and they have achieved skills that most average genin didn't get till they were a bit older. Katsumi assumed it was the motivation of the three that got them to where they were- but she knew it didnt end there. IF anything, they could do things for both the good and bad in an amazing way. 'Its only time that sto..'- Katsumi abruptly stopped.

A sudden vibrate hit her strings and she turned quickly-a natural reaction for her, But instead of attacking, the uzumaki scanned the messenger calm;y and nodded as a greeting. Silent as always. Giving the team a quick look, the messagner stepped foreward towards the red headed sensei. "Katsumi, you must report to the tower quickly, the raikage has something to inform you."
'How sudden' Katsumi blinks. 'A mission perhaps?' Something about her team?..it was only a week ago that they had their examination.' Strange..

But she couldn't leave the order unattended, so she turned to Prishe, Benkei and Nishimaru. "As you heard, I need to report to the tower..but that doesn't stop you from training.." She said with a small smile, looking at every one of them. "However you may take a break, Ill be back." And with that, she walked off before disappearing in the shadowed trees in a flurry. It left the genin alone to do their bidding however unknown to them, she left a few things to make sure they were not out of hand. Though, she doubt that she had to use any of them. They were good after all.
-
Running on the roofs, she poofed away after a few hand seals and appeared at the door of Megami's office. Surely, the raikage knew of her presence, but she stood quietly anyways. "Im here Raikage." Her voice naturally hushed. "May I enter..?"

#, as written by Shaodow
"As you heard, I need to report to the tower..but that doesn't stop you from training.."

Benkei had no desire to pry into her privater matters so he grunted a dismissive reply, turning his back on her as well to face his squad-mates with a distinct irritated frown. In a mission situation if they were separated from their Jonin leadership would be transferred to a single squad member, or the only active Chunin among them. For them Prishe would be their leader by default because even though she is a pip squeak of a shinobi, she outranked the both of them, and he was clearly still bitter about it. According to him the only reason she made it through the exams was because he never got matched up with her earlier on and was incapacitated and could not participate in the final rounds. He had his eyes dead set on Lady Raikage's star pupil since the very start of the chunin exams and it fries him up inside knowing she passed; he'd missed his chance to take her down in front of Lady Raikage herself, and to make matters worse just a few weeks ago they sent her out on a mission alone and by the state of her she came pretty close to failing that mission and maybe even death. It was an idiotic gamble to make.

He contemplated leaving the two of them behind to practice his new jutsu in private but decided against it. He could tell that their master was growing suspicious of the time spent training on his own, away from the squad. At first it made sense, in the chunin exams one could easily get put up against a member of their own squad so it behooved them to train in private in order to bring something new to the table in order to surprise an enemy already familiar with their style of combat, but because he was never able to participate in the final rounds they never got to see what he had been working on all that time so it stood to reason that there was no longer any reason to train in private. Yet he persisted and any attempts to spy on or follow him were thwarted so it was clear he was going the extra mile to ensure no one ever discovered his new jutsu.

" well you heard Uzumaki sensei, get back to training " he barked at the two of them as he returned to practicing his basic strikes on a wooden dummy set up specifically for basic taijutsu training. He was taught early on not to focus only on the big flashy moves, but to also constantly refine the basics. And he did just that. At this point he rarely even practiced his thunder style in front of them; The hum drum routine of basic kickboxing strikes and kicks were the ideal method of leaving no hints as to what new jutsu he was secretly developing.

On a tree near a forest cleaning sat a golden haired youth motionless and apparently relaxing in the sun. Unlike his comrades the youth was not doing anything at least to the eyes of the passing observer apart from occasionally staring at the sun.

The name of the youth was Daichi the lazy; Lord of hesitation, prince of hindsight and known bird watcher extraordinary. Daichi was indeed quite a character however apart from the first of these titles only Daichi ever addressed himself in such an extensive manner.

Daichi gazed at the sun and noted the receding tree shadows, any minute now…

Nearby to Daichi's position a series of mirrors tied to the branches shined reflecting the sun's rays. A thin rope was tied to one of these branches and a heavy stone was tightly tied to it. The rope began to burn as the concentration of reflected sun rays produced by the surrounding mirrors pushed it beyond the materials endurance.

As suddenly as smoke began to form the rope snapped. From the base tree the falling stone violently released a dozen shuriken grenades held at the top branches, the grenades detonated sending a host of shuriken towards Daichi's position. Other strings stretching from the base tree to a dozen others retracted as the weight of the stone dissipated.

A host of trigger operated Kunai launchers released another wave of metal creating a cloud of Shinobi instruments all headed towards Daichi's tree.

Daichi immediately jumped off the tree top and descended hopping from branch to branch trying to avoid the traps he had set up on them. A number of Shuriken tags detonated in harmonious chaos with a needle bomb however Daichi had the unfair advantage of knowing where he had set up his traps.

The earth aimed second wave of Kunai and needles greeted Daichi as he reached the ground forcing Daichi to jump back to the branches he had just arrived from. As soon as he arrived Daichi was greeted by a surprising untriggered needle trap, Daichi unable to doge the attack countered it with a rapid sweep of his own Kunai.

Daichi stood on the scared tree branch puffing wildly teeming with adrenalin. In about one minute's time he had expended double the ammunition he normally carried with him. It took nearly an hour to set up so many triggers so this formation was not so useful in operations.

For training purposes Daichi used such contraptions now and then in order to practice his evasion skills with conditions as similar to real combat as possible.

Daichi heard Sensei talk to what seemed to be a messenger. Daichi returned his Kunai to its leather scabbard and soon jumped off the tree to investigate. As he touched the ground Daichi felt a sharp pain in his left leg near the knee.
Daichi took a moment to investigate and noticed that two small needles had penetrated his skin; the adrenalin of the moment had obviously shielded him from the pain until now.

Daichi covered up the wound and smiled trying to hide this embracing case of self-inflicted wounding as he emerged from the forest.

"As you heard, I need to report to the tower..but that doesn't stop you from training however you may take a break, Ill be back." Said Katsumi Sensei she smiled at her three pupils and then departed the forest clearing towards the village.

Daichi waited for a few moments struggling with the mild yet sharp pain of his wound, he was indeed fortunate that needles had hit him as a "puncher" by a Kunai would have been… a complicated affair.

Daichi braced himself and removed the two needles; the needles where no larger than small tooth picks however their removal was still a painful affair. The wound now began to bleed slightly until Daichi covered it with a tightly bound bandage.

He gazed at a number of other wounds he had received over the years… many of them had never healed properly but Daichi could cover these so long as he wore long sleeves. Such scars both small and large where common to Daichi; life threatening wounds surprisingly healed quite rapidly however the others seemed to bleed for a while before they closed up.

Some genetic business was involved in this disorder but nobody so far could give Daichi satisfying answers, such as the reason why serious wounds healed rapidly and others took so much time?

Unsurprisingly the first to speak among the three youths was the most outspoken… and loudest among them; Benkei Hotogeki .
"Well you heard Uzumaki sensei, get back to training" barked the fellow golden haired youth. Benkei was an aggressively competitive individual so it was little wonder that he ranked rather low on the friendly persons chart.

Unlike some Daichi didn't mind Benkei's attitude and ether passively ignored or opposed it when he felt like reminding Benkei he had no authority apart from what he was given by others.

Benkei had been bitter even since the conclusion of the Chunin exams. Daichi like Benkei had failed the exams however Daichi didn't mind the failure as much as Benkei did. Daichi was even somewhat relieved he could remain a Genin for a bit longer… the duties and responsibilities of a Chunin where too much of a bother.

Prishe was the winner of that title and it was this that irked Benkei possibly even more than his failure at the exams.
"Benkei, Sensei also happened to mention that we were free to take a break if we wanted to" said Daichi quietly but clearly enough for him to hear.

"I am personally quite supportive of this arrangement; you can go ahead and bash dummies if you want to, I trust that you will emerge victorious against those vicious terrors."

Prishe Umira

Prishe had been quite mellow only thinking to herself for the most part. It was as if she wasn't even putting an effort into including her team mates or trying to train at the moment but too much was on her mind and some of the pain from two weeks ago had recently kicked in.. Nothing to harsh but it did make her stop. The girl leaned against the tree only to have her eyes examined her surroundings and then team mates. She didn't really mind them except Benkei's persona. It's not bad to be competitive yet, he takes it to another level. She smirked to him knowing he didn't become a chunin like she yet she did wonder what his full potential was. After a quick stretch she suddenly heard an unfamiliar voice speaking to Uzumaki sensei.

“Must be a message...” she said quietly to herself only to suddenly hear her sensei's words to confirm it. Prishe's bright yellow eyes followed her sensei's movement as she went off. It was a little peaceful until Benkei opened his mouth as if he placed himself as leader.

"I am personally quite supportive of this arrangement; you can go ahead and bash dummies if you want to, I trust that you will emerge victorious against those vicious terrors." said Daichi. a more pleasant member of the group.

“Heh – I'm gonna have to agree, we have came a long ways in just a month and I'm sure we all know we won't just drop training for the day and go about doing whatever. I myself am probably going to sit for awhile before practicing a little harder before Uzumaki sensei comes back, which makes me wonder – What do you think she was called away for? You know its been awhile as a team since we've done a good mission together. In a way I think our progression was a bit too quick...”

Megami Sandā


“Yes … yes, I know you're here. Come on in..” Megami said a little loud so she could hear outside of the door. She busied her hands filing some of the papers mainly the document file for the mission. She waited for Katsumi to enter and when she did she immediately tossed the file onto her desk lightly and then placed her finger upon it before speaking.

“Do you know what this is...?” Megami asked obviously knowing she had no idea other then knowing it was a mission. Megami's eyes went to hers with only a 2 second pause before speaking again.

“Of course not.. other then knowing its a mission file.. however this is one of quite importance.” Megami paused with her finger still upon the file. Her purple eyes moved up to Katsumi before asking her a quest that may have seemed off topic yet to her it made perfect sense.

“It must be or feel quite nice being the Jonin of quite a splendid team... How are they? Particularly even more so how is Prishe... her injuries were quite something when she came back two weeks ago... I've been so busy I was only able to see her two days of the week and it brief” She waited for the answer and had she answered she the nodded.

“Listen, me and Konoha have been plotting for months for a union and we've finally come to a proposal of an exchange. Your citizenship, loyalty and honor lies in our beloved village yet you will live there for a time being. Arrangements have been made more information will be given once WE arrive in Konoha... thats right you're also escorting me. I would say you have two weeks or so... however I don't mind going earlier. Do you have any questions upon this?” Megami kept it short and possibly undetailed but she didn't want to give off too much about the mission although Megami wanted the trust between the two villages she also wanted them to spy and telling them they were needed to spy in Konoha's territory wouldn't be the right mindset. Her hands cupped waiting for a reply for the woman.

"I am personally quite supportive of this arrangement; you can go ahead and bash dummies if you want to, I trust that you will emerge victorious against those vicious terrors."

Benkei's right jab came to an abrupt halt just centimeters from the crater formally the chest of the wood dummy; It had been beaten in from it's years of punishment. He turned towards the two of them, poised to argue to the fact but was cut out by Prishe before he could get the chance.

“Heh – I'm gonna have to agree, we have came a long ways in just a month and I'm sure we all know we won't just drop training for the day and go about doing whatever. I myself am probably going to sit for awhile before practicing a little harder before Uzumaki sensei comes back, which makes me wonder – What do you think she was called away for? You know its been awhile as a team since we've done a good mission together. In a way I think our progression was a bit too quick...”

instead of responding immediately he turned with a swift roundhouse kick to the wood dummy's head and sent if flying off into the thick of the trees. " Maybe too quick for you, pipsqueak, but I'm ready. " he said as he turned back to the two of them; his right foot charged with golden lightning, his " thunder ". " It's not our place to wonder, if it's something we need to know she'll tell us when she returns. " he said with finality. "...but you're right, it has been a while so if I had to guess then I would say it's most likely a new mission... "

he paused. Just then a familiar dangerous look began to grow in his eye, one that his long time squadmates would surely recognize. It's the same expression he wears just before doing something stupid and or dangerous in order to show off and what he was about to say next would confirm their fears.

" As a matter of fact it must be a important one. The last mission was the one they sent you on alone and we are the best squad they have. We know it, Uzumaki sensei knows it, and Lady Raikage knows it. Hopefully I'll get my chance to show that I deserve to be a Chunin, without making you look too bad of course pipsqueak "

Daichi gazed at his compatriot's purpose driven eyes and wondered what kind of mischief was brewing in his mind. Benkei's hot headiness was not an altogether negative think; Benkei had an iron will and the courage of a tiger however he also had the temper of the solitary predator.

Benkei's words seemed to Daichi words spoken more to himself then to the team but instead of ignoring him Daichi merely made a curious face and looked up at the tree tops.

Daichi who had since sat down stood up once again despite the continuing aggravation of the wounding. He thoughtfully removed a stringed Kunai from his backpack and aimed its course of flight in the direction of one of the training dummies.

The Kunai released by Daichi promptly struck the target much to Daichi's satisfaction. Daichi pulled on the string and produced a chaotic movement of the dummy which served to increase the difficulty of an otherwise charming but simplistic task.

Daichi grinned wildly as he embarked on his own piece of mischief; he removed from his pack three tins of paint and three brushes which he cautiously placed on a tree stump.

Daichi opened each of the tins revealing the colors Yellow, Purple and Dark Gray in front of him. Daichi snatched one of the brushes and dipped it the yellow color unable to overcome the childish fervor.

Daichi thoughtlessly sprinkled the paint both on himself and the target as he forcibly slashed away with the paint brush. A strip of Yellow paint was now present on the dummies lefthand shoulder.

Daichi turned towards Prishe menacingly as if he intended to paint her next however just as he moved his brush slightly backwards as if for a strike he snatched one of the unused brushes and tossed it at Prishe.

"Think Fast lassie!" shouted Daichi wondering how his superior officer would react to this now intolerable insubordination.

Megami Sandā


"Would that be all Megami-sama..?"

Megami rested her arms upon her desk laying her head in above her hands as she entwined her fingers together and looked straight at Katsumi with her dark purple eyes. She blinked before speaking.

“I expect a answer soon, at least before the day ends. I suggest since you are a team you comfront them before giving the answer... However, I understand If you want to give Prishe a week or two extra to recover but let that answer not be through feelings alone...Dismissed.”

Prishe Umira


" As a matter of fact it must be a important one. The last mission was the one they sent you on alone and we are the best squad they have. We know it, Uzumaki sensei knows it, and Lady Raikage knows it. Hopefully I'll get my chance to show that I deserve to be a Chunin, without making you look too bad of course pipsqueak "

She just grinned a getting slightly annoyed with the comments but sighed it off before replying.

“Hehe – well if you don't just keep the thought in mind that you're still surpassed by someone younger then you and at this point... still … stronger... then YOU!”

She winked at Benkei before doing a teasing pose before looking towards Daichi for a split second only to see what his react was to all of this yet she only saw that he was grabbing items from his pack. Prishe sighed until something came in surprise to her.

“Think Fast lassie!"

To Prishe surprise she nearly thought it would have paint on it but so as soon as she caught with her right hand she spunn around and playfully held it like a Kunai attempting to act as if she was going to paint Benkei's neck.

“Hya!!”

“I expect a answer soon, at least before the day ends. I suggest since you are a team you comfront them before giving the answer... However, I understand If you want to give Prishe a week or two extra to recover but let that answer not be through feelings alone...Dismissed.”

Katsumi remained quiet, and merely bowed, before leaving the room. But as she did, Megami's words still lingered through her head. 'Let the answer not be through feelings alone..' Was it true maybe? Did she use her emotions over her knowledge and logic? She grimanced warily, hopefully that the flaw wont get in her or teams way in the future. "well.." She better get back to the team quickly, it was growing dark.

Surely they would be training. Skillfully, her hands moved into a few hand motions and suddenly she dissapeared in a cloud of smoke. In minutes, she appeared near her team and blinked at the sight. '-or not.' She held back a chuckle, and remembered the seriousness at hand. They had a mission.

But.. She looked at Prishe. Shall the news wait?- No, she mentally shook her head. Prishe was strong and like the Raikage said, she shouldnt decide because of feeling. The team needed to go, and this was a mission that had to do with another village, logically, no one would want to risk it.

Clapping her hands, she looked at her students [who would probably turn their attention], her eyes holding a serious gleam. "I've been called to the tower as you know, and for one reason mainly." She paused. "A mission. Which involves Konoha." The Uzumaki looked for interest and what her students felt by just expression. Katsumi assumed that they all would be excited and looking forward to go.. But she wasnt certain. "The raikage requested for us, because she believes we're strong and capable of the mission. But don't grow too cocky as this mission isnt only going to konoha, its also an escort with the raikage." Katsumi smiled slightly. "However I trust you three we'll be wise during this time at konoha as its an experience and we represent our village.. I assume you guys are ready for this mission?" She asked finally, curious about their thoughts.

“Hehe – well if you don't just keep the thought in mind that you're still surpassed by someone younger then you and at this point... still … stronger... then YOU!”

At that moment he went completely still, the smirk still remained yet his features were completely strained as if he was holding himself back from making any irrational decisions. The audacity of her, calling him out like that when she knew full well how protective master was of her after the state she had been recovered in; There was no telling when their master would return from her summons from Lady Raikage and they would likely be scolded if they were discovered fighting, again. ' although...I could just say it was just a sparring match this time ' He had decided. He knew he would have to learn to back down from a cahllenge one day because it's that reason alone that he's not a chunin as well, but today wasn't that day.

CLAP!. Benkai stopped just as he was about to take fighting stance and turned to see their master had returned, and her hard expression told him it was time to back down, she had saved Prishe a serious beating.

"I've been called to the tower as you know, and for one reason mainly." She paused. That familiar grin had already revisited his expression for he knew what she would say next " A mission. Which involves Konoha " He crossed his arms and nodded, as if it say it's about damn time.

" Of course we're ready! I've been itching for a good mission; I was starting to thinking Lady Raikage was getting too afraid for her pet to send us out of the village. So when do we start, I can start preparing right away! " he was pumped for a new mission. Though he knew it was foolish to hope that the escort goes nothing but smoothly he could not help but almost pray for some opposition, he had some serious steam to blow and was dying to prove himself.

Daichi's moment of cheerfulness ended sooner than he expected as his two comrades once again began to exchange their normal verbal blows. Disappointed Daichi flipped the brush in the air before hurling another swipe of paint towards the target.
Daichi soon grew bored with this distraction and decided that rest was the better part of valor. Daichi located a comfortable looking tree and sat under its shade.

Prishe seemed to be nearly fully recovered as far as Daichi could observe from the speed and elegance of her response to his challenge. It was these little sometimes strange actions which allowed Daichi to see the state of mind and being of his comrades.
At last Katsumi Sensei returned finally putting a stop to the rapidly heating atmosphere of the camp and filling the three youngsters with barley controlled eagerness and curiosity.

Daichi chuckled at the thought of the scene; it seemed to resemble the reaction of puppies to the return of their mother. The serious consideration of the situation also crossed his mind; All three youngsters where only beginning their professional careers and for the time being their training, their future… their very lives where in the hands of this one individual.

Such incredible responsibility sent shudders down Daichi's spine, how could the adults of the village bare it? How could a master train three young shinobi when one or two of them may very well die while at this stage of their training?

Only one month had passed since the three unlikely candidates became a team and yet Daichi already felt more at home in the group then he ever did in the past. Daichi trusted and even adored each and every one of the people on this team to the extent he could not imagine a world without them. If one month was enough to bind him so closely with the team what would a year bring?

Prishe was Intelligent, Rational, and a fantastic fighter. Daichi could see that beyond her sense of independence there was more of an indication of her potential to become a future leader.
Benkei was courageous, unrelenting and possessing of an iron will. Daichi despite his fallouts with this very anti-social individual saw a warrior who could go on until the end even when others have given up.

Compared to them Daichi was nothing and he knew it. Daichi could still stand his ground in a fight of skill but for each leap they made he could only manage a petty half. It was only his age and greater experience which were keeping him on their level but in the long term Daichi knew he could only fall behind and become a liability to his comrades.

After all, what could he offer? His Chakra control was less than satisfactory, his fighting skills where limited to hit and run tactics since his own body could not take punishment like most of the human species.

If Daichi didn't have his responsibility to the village to adhere to he would have given up a long time ago. After all, who was it that saved him from the life of the wanderer? Who gave him hope? Who trained him? And who finally made his lifelong ambition a reality?
The village, the only home Daichi could ever call home.

All his past seems like a lie, a fraud and a hypocrisy yet here in the village these past few years Daichi has found something real in this world. In the past when he grasped the waters of the ocean he could only see the ocean yet he felt nothing; not the coldness of the liquid nor the gentle winds of the west. Now Daichi could feel all those things! It was as if his past was in black and white and then when he came to the village the world filled with color.

Instead of watching his past from above Daichi could now feel what it was to be alive and it was because of this that he was willing to die for his comrades and for the village but more importantly he was willing to lvie for his comrades and for the village.
Daichi stood up and walked towards the group. Sensei had at long last come to tell them good news it seemed.

"I've been called to the tower as you know, and for one reason mainly. "A mission, Which involves Konoha." "The raikage requested for us, because she believes we're strong and capable of the mission. But don't grow too cocky as this mission isnt only going to konoha, its also an escort with the raikage.""However I trust you three we'll be wise during this time at konoha as its an experience and we represent our village.. I assume you guys are ready for this mission?"

Daichi was speechless, A mission to Konoha? An escort to the Raikage and they were getting the job? Daichi didn’t know how she did it, he never heard of a rookie team getting such a classy mission so soon after ending their initial training.
Daichi wondered; could they do it?

Daichi had traveled in the land of fire for a time in his youth but he had never passed near Konoha. That was irrelevant as ether Katsumi Sensei or the Raikage where bound to know the way to Konoha however Daichi hoped he could be useful in navigation so that he may win at least some appreciation on this otherwise probably uneventful mission.

The escort detail was of course nonsense since the Raikage was perfectly capable of protecting herself. In all likelihood all the team would do was provide some sort of honor guard and maybe get to know a few of their fellow rookies in Konoha for the sake of diplomatic relations.

Daichi didn't show his excitement preferring to keep it to himself however he had no objection to stating some eagerness and even impatience.
"Well, I have no objections. When do we leave?" said Daichi intrigued by this strange turn of events.

Prishe began to grin as she saw the easily taunted Benkei boiling up and getting into his fighting stance. Her eyes watched as his feet and hands began to move into the stance. Observing him close as if she were ready and expecting the actions and he easily matched each expectation until their Jonin came back.

"My my, It appears our over confident dimwit was saved from getting beat again and this time by one recovering from injuries..." She said with a taunting action of bringing her eye down and her tongue out until hearing Katsumi clap her hands. The girl's head turned before lowering her gestures and becoming more serious. Her eyes pierced upon the jonin as she began to speak. Her arms folded as her whole body turned. She only saw sensei's eyes beam down to her with wonder but shook it off. Prishe grinned as if she may have known what was on her mind and it only turned to a smirk.

"I've been called to the tower as you know, and for one reason mainly." Katsumi began only to begin forming a familiar smile as if they were going to be explained their next mission and as correct it never failed. The jonin began explaining the mission with seriousness in her tone.

"A mission. Which involves Konoha."

Prishe's eyes widened as did her grin. A mission that involves another country with the genin, this indeed was a rare chance and choice but to Prishe she had a feeling there was a bigger reason for her master to be giving such a mission to the team and herself but didn't mention anything. At the moment she could only wonder what the reason was for them to involve Konoha.

"The raikage requested for us, because she believes we're strong and capable of the mission. But don't grow too cocky as this mission isnt only going to konoha, its also an escort with the raikage." Katsumi then followed her explanation after letting her smile waver slightly. "However I trust you three we'll be wise during this time at konoha as its an experience and we represent our village.. I assume you guys are ready for this mission?" She asked finally, curious about their thoughts.

" Of course we're ready! I've been itching for a good mission; I was starting to thinking Lady Raikage was getting too afraid for her pet to send us out of the village. So when do we start, I can start preparing right away! " Benkei said obviously wanting to taunt Prishe but at the same time did have a good point. She too was rather interested in such a mission but this didn't move her thoughts when this was said.

"Please, I think it's more the fact that she knows I'm ready and someone needs to put the dog down when he messes up" Prishe countered obviously calling Benkei a mutt with a grin. Her attention then moved o Daichi who was the neutral and positive of the two. She always did enjoy his company playful, calm but skillful in his own way too.

"Well, I have no objections. When do we leave?"

"I'm ready, Hey sensei, when you report back to Lady Raikage, be sure to give my word that I'm good to go!"

The Uzumaki watched her students and mused at the widen eyes, and agape mouths. This is pretty new to leave the village for so long- defiantly as a group. Isnt this a treat?

But she wasnt surprised by the responses, she actually smiled. It was expected of her team to give such answers- They were always energetic, and open to get stronger. Their will would always overflow, which is probably one of the many reasons that Megumi picked them. Katsumi couldnt say how proud she was for a team like them. Surely they knew that.

"Well, I have no objections. When do we leave?"
"I'm ready, Hey sensei, when you report back to Lady Raikage, be sure to give my word that I'm good to go!"


She nodded, and turned toward the sky for the moment- calculating the travel time. It would take a few days if they set off by sunset... but with their speed who knew. "Well, Im going to report back, so while I'm gone get ready for the trip, and meetme at the gates." Lifting her hand in a curt wave, Katsumi suddenly disappeared in speed and began to raced along the roof tops.

While she did so, she thought of the mission, and suddenly remembered her grandmother's face. The word Konoha always left her mouth and yet she had no idea why. That made her wonder. "Why." Maybe she will take advantage of the long week ahead of them to answer her curiosity. 'Wouldnt that be interesting.'

Slowing down near the raikage's office, she knocked at the wooden door with the utmost respect. "Raikage-sama, im back to report." When the leader allowed her in, she entered before continuing. "The team has agreed and we will be able to set out by tonight- Oh and Prishe" She resisted a soft chuck.le. "she wants me to personally inform you that she is "ready to go"

[Hopefully that works, sorry for the wait!]
