Nickname: Yasu
Age: 24
Gender: Male
Species: Human

Height: 6'ft2
Weight: 169
Hair Color: Jet black
Eye Color: Ocean blue
Physical Description: Very slim, yet very tall. Ieyasu stands at a lank 6'ft2. And no sore to the eye either, Ieyasu has distinct features which compared to other men, his quite handsome. Compared to his relatives which are rather shorter and chubbier then him. His hair is a careless mop, which flings side to side. Ieyasu has very little control over his hair, not even a comb is able to tame the wild beast. Thought he usually ignores it, it sometimes does infact get into his remaining eye, by which then he decides to cut it. Ieyasu's kimonos are always very flashy and very extravagance-inc. They always seem to have a pattern or two on them, whether it being a purple butterfly, a flower pattern of some sort or just a simple purple with a golden rim. Thought his fashion taste is somewhat off, the same can't be said for his pipe. Ieyasu is rarely seen without his pipe, he either puts in herbs, or tobacco either one always does the drink. Thought it may look like a simple pipe, the golden ends on it are infact real which he obtained on a job one day.

Ieyasu's remaining eye is a deep ocean blue, with slight bright rims around it. The ladies seem to find it very irresistible oddly enough, especially the fact that he's missing a eye. When unwrapped, the other side of Ieyasu's eye is a eye from a Yokai. There's a deep red and black pattern in it, the eye strongly resembles the pattern that of a star. Though this eye is rarely seen, as he prefers to not have the world know about he's 2nd demonic eye. Even without his red eye, Ieyasu looks very intimating with cloth wrapped around his other eye and a pretty tall man. Often on gentle walks, Ieyasu carries a umbrella with him. The umbrella is a very plan purple, with black streaks going through it. Though rarely seen, Yasu wears a a black waist coat over his kimono. It's a deep black, with golden petals going all through it, it's either that or a complete black Kimono when he goes to special occasions, weddings funerals etc etc.

Amorous View: Ieyasu's a young man, 24 years of age and a handsome one, ofcourse he's gonna utilize his powers. Ieyasu's relationships never lasted longer then a night, he's what's called a player. He's earned himself the Silver tongue nickname around places of prostitution. Ieyasu knows what a woman wants to hear, and he never fails to deliver. Thought not all woman are fans of his missing eye, older women certainlys seemed to be attracted to it. Ieyasu doesn't made as long as they retain their appearance it's fine. The mans powers don't only stretch to humans, he's been known to bed Yokai once or six times. Of course, he dreams of settling down having a family maybe running a business of some sort. But he's young and he's heart is not devoted to anyone just yet.

Capability
Skill ♦Master Swordsman:
Like all men of Edo period, Ieyasu is infact quite skilled with a sword. But Ieyasu wasn't interested in traditional katana, he took up learning the Odachi.A traditional Japanese long sword capable of incredible range, Ieyasu had to take up a new techinque to master the sword. Though traditionally worn on the back, Ieyasu's size allowed it to be fitted around the waist. Ieyasu mastered the Odachi, along with the style used with it, Hokushin Ittō-ryū. The style encourages the user to finish the opponent as swiftly as possible.

♦Shamisen player Ieyasu, in the very little spare time he has, often plays the Shamisen a guitar looking instrument with a square base body. Ieyasu took it up at a very young age, as he thought it would later on help him in life (which it did not.) he stirved to be a famous idol. Sometimes Ieyasu joins up with a singer, or a beautiful woman. This no doubt helps him with women, as he is able to play a soft tune for them. Back when he was not doing so well in life, Ieyasu played the Shamisen in local bars, or joined up with a instrumental band every now and then. He has no real purpose to play it, it doesn't improve anything or aid his life in anyway. He just finds it very relaxing, as he plays the soft tune under a cherry blossom tree. It really does take a lot of stress away.

♦Stamina and Speed Constantly training this, Ieyasu has a very high supply of stamina and speed. It's all to do with his build, not being build very bulky gives him a disadvantage in physical strength, thought not totally weak Ieyasu isn't totally tanky either. Instead he chooses to focus this feat, which has served him very well as it goes hand in hand with fighting type of technique which again encourages you to finish your opponent as swiftly as possible which is one of the benefits of learning that pectacular dojo style. With his Yokai eye, it gives him huge advantages as he's able to spot weak points and take them out swiftly.

Natural Aptitude
Ability ♦The Yokai Eye The eye Ieyasu acquired from the demon was quite a special one indeed, after his left eye had been cut out his was life blind on the battlefield there was only one quick decision to make take the eye or be half blind. Naturally he took this eye, and surprisingly the socket accepted the eye thought it could not be shown for too long. Ieyasu's eye is as he likes to call it the reveler of secrets, because it can tell apart Yokai from Human. The eye can spot all 3 forms if used correctly, though he still has a long way to train it. Not only can it expose secrets, but weaknesses too. The eye can target vital weak points in Yokai or Human alike which makes Ieyasu a dangerous opponent all together on the battlefield. He doesn't have the name one eye death for nothing.

♦ Yokai Blade Ieyasu wields a blade, which was made from the body of a Yokai. The blade itself has a mind of it's own and needs its own requirements or it could take the host over itself. The blade grants it's user speed, incredible speed which Ieyasu can utilize even further because of his own speed and stamina. He could be here, then there in a matter of seconds. Ofcourse there's a flip side to every coin, the blade demands a certain amount of blood each day be it animal, yokai or human if not given the Odachi is capable of taking over it's host. Which would be very bad because it could cause serious trouble with Ieyasu's body.

♦Nothing can hide from the eye Ieyasu's demonic eye allows him to be immune to the effects of illusions, thus he can see through most illusions. The caster of the illusion would have to be exceptionally power to overcome his eye but that's not to say it couldn't be done. Though he is immune to them, it does cost away at his eyesight which by 60 he'll be blind. But for now, Ieyasu's vision is a perfect 20x20 if not better.

Confident ♦ Cocky ♦ Humorous ♦ Sneaky
Image
Disposition:Ieyasu's personality is naturally confident, he's always been. Never shy's away from any girls, or never shys a way from drinking someone under the table. And why not be? When your so ruggedly good looking and handsome as him you don't have much to fear. Ieyasu often visits the Teahouse in Edo, to relax there and be entertained. You'd think because of all the relaxing he does, he has a very stressful life but infact he doesn't. Sure the first part of his life wasen't the best, but it all came together long ago. All the smoking, drinking and relaxing really does help with his attitude.


Though he has a confident exterior, he also has a very sneaky one. Ieyasu never hesitates to take advantage of those who are too trusting or are too weak willed. He can be called a villan, but he likes to call himself a helper. Ieyasu will often trick them, into manipulating them for his own needs. Like this one time, a maiden from a noble family had fallen in love with him, but he only used her for her money. He won't hesitate to take control of someone weak willed, because all the people need a leader correct? Well there's always Ieyasu, and who knows he might even start a rebellion one day. Not to mention take he always used those who are weak of the mind.

All the doings in Yoshiwara(Red light district) have made him somewhat of a legend there, he always gets entertained by the highest of courtesans and has the most expensive sake. But he's not only in touch with prostitutes, Ieyasu has a strong influence in gang groups, thought he has no gang. He's generally known around the underbelly of edo, and how can you not recongise him? One eye big guy. His influence even stretches to the depths of the Mimawarugumi the elite police force. He obtained all this power because of his cunning ways. he's tricked many leaders into falling into his web and BAM! He takes them out to make his position known in his newly made gang.

Thought he does like all this influence, he also does have his fair share of humor. Ieyasu's a very laid back man, so when he does see very stiff people he'll usually humiliate them. Making jokes about people who are too uptight his way he lives for. Sometimes he'll even trick courtesans in which he also finds humor in. Thought he never laughs out loud, he always gives a small grin and maybe a small laugh when he has tricked someone. Because of this, Ieyasu is not a man who can be trusted often, but if he does think your cause is valid then he may aid it. Even in battles, he humiliates his opponents if he wishes too, and that's where he cocky exterior comes from. He rarely backs down a fight, maybe because his pride gets to him or maybe because he just wants to fight who knows..Though this can be sure, watching their faces in shame is the sweetest grape on the planet..

Reminiscence: History/Background
Born to a average family, and a lonely child Ieyasu was a very content child with very little going on in his life. He had gotten his first name from the current Shogun, Ieyasu his parents hoped that he could strive to become like him. He often went training at a elite dojo, which he had never been able to afford without the help of his father. The head of the dojo, and his father had been childhood friends and his father was able to pull a couple of strings to let Ieyasu in. The dojo was incredibly tough on it's students, often beating them with kendo sticks if they went out of order. Whenever he came home Ieyasu was always worn out, and welcomed by his mothers kissing.

Ieyasu eventually become a great swordsmen at the age of 19/20 that's about the time when he took his guitar playing up as a profession, life was alright in Edo. But then he came and took everything away. Ieyasu was one of the Samurai who protected Edo from the man, but his forces were overwhelming and they were defeated in a matter of months. In the heat of the battle, Ieyasu's eye was cut out by a Yokai in return Ieyasu took the Yokai's life,eyes and blade. That's when he acquired the blade, and eyes he was a formidable opponent on the battlefield, but he wasen't able to make miracles and they lost the war.

After the war he hung up his Samurai days, and continued on as a freelancer. When Ieyasu returned home, his parents were not to be seen and Ieyasu expected the worse, and he was right they were taken out. He was greatly grieved by this and that's about the time he took up smoking,women etc etc. Before that, Ieyasu's dream was to become a noble samurai with a wife and a noble job but unfortunately he's reality was shattered by life. Ieyasu is no longer blinded by loyalty, whosoever the highest bidder gets his services. He's job can range from guarding duties, to taking out a group of bandits. They range entirely.

Nowadays, all he does is freelance, drink sake and sleep with women. When he's not doing that, Ieyasu's either training or playing his instrument. Ieyasu's goes through a very strict training schedule, involving numerous speed tests and stamina ones. Ieyasu always keeps a squirrel or any type of animal in his home, not because he likes them but just in case his sword doesn't taste blood he'll just give the animals a taste.Ieyasu recently developed a taste of Yoshiwara, in which he doesn't have the biggest reputation in but hopes too one day. Why not? It's the most vile place man can find, prostitutes drugs gangs perfect for a man like him. Though he still is known there, he has very little control over Yoshiwara. Word is the influence over the red light district belongs to the all mighty new lord. Round about when he started drinking, he always took up hustling can one thing led to another and all of a sudden he was known around Edo. The police forces where incredibly weary of him, but had their hands tied because of his position in society. But he's not content, he wants more from life and he's just waiting for the opportunity when he can be useful again.
