Name: Fujibayashi Kitsuya
Nickname/alias: Sasayai kage (The Whispering Shadow)
Hebi wa yōshanai (The Relentless Serpent)
The "Hebi wa yōshanai", or The Relentless Serpent, is a thin chokuto styled blade passed down through the Fujibayashi bloodline. The blade, though thin, is incredibly strong and devastatingly sharp. The blade was made to be remarkably fast for swift, precise slashes.
- The wielder obtains the ability to camouflage himself with his surrounds; the slower he moves the more camouflaged he is, standing still makes him nearly invisible.
The Serpents Vigor
- The wielder taps into the prowess of a serpent; silent, swift and precise. Kitsuya is able to move quietly, as if gliding effortless around with hardly a sound; though his movements still produce sound they are so quiet that only someone with a high level of detection could hear him. He is swift, flaunting miraculous speed, agility and reactions. He is also precise, able to perform pinpoint maneuvers beyond that of your normal human.
Personality: Kitsuya is quiet, contemplative and constantly on alert. He was trained to never let his guard down, never let a weakness show. Above all else he was trained to seek power, become stronger; which made his decision to join Tsuguri and her plan to retrieve the Muramasa blade all that much easier.
History: The Fujibayashi clan has a vast Ninja history, being one of the first of few clans in the styles original creation. Fujibayashi clan during the war between Masamune and Muramasa played a vital role of stealth, espionage, and sabotage against Muramasa's evil forces. After the Muramasa blade was than sealed away and the disciples went back to their respective lives, the Fujibayashi clan took up refuge within the thick forest and mountainous region of Japan, their original home. The clan settlement is hidden extremely well within the forests surrounded by dangerously steep mountains and covered in booby-traps to keep unwelcome visitors away. The exact location is a well kept secret in the Fujibayashi clan, driven into their mattra that they would rather see death come to them before revealing the location of the clan.
The Fujibayashi clan is a devout clan focus on the disciplines of the Ninja Arts, without utter loyalty to the clan would mean ones death. Each child, boy or girl, would be thrown into tireless training within the following days after the child displayed the ability to walk and show cognitive responses, which was very loosely judged for actual cognitive responses. The children had no day off, no relaxation from their constant tyranny of their Elders as they molded them into well hardened killing machines of the night. Their bodies beaten only to heal and become stronger, their bones dense from constant damage and reforming of the calcium. With this tireless, relentless training most children died and it was merely thought of as "trimming away the fat" as the westerner's would say. they're life revolved around the ninja way, they understood nothing else. Their studies outside of physical training encircled the philosophy of the ninja. They were without regard of human life, they held cold eyes and unwavering determination when seeking out a kill. They were programmed to seek out power and obtain it to increase the strength of their Clan. Though their clan was like a family, an ecosystem of community working for a singular goal, they were taught if one held them back or died in a mission that they should be left for the clan had no room for failures.
Kitsuya's up bringing was no different, though being of the bloodline of the disciple of the Fujibayashi clan (for not all of the Fujibayashi clan were actually blood related, only a small handful actually were) he was focused on during training, giving him the smallest of slack even in this tyrannical system of training. But he excelled, he grew strong incredibly fast, having that bloodline burn proudly through his veins he was the epitome of his clan, even at a young age. At the age of twenty he was technically graduated from the academy, though in their belief one never stops learning and growing. He had proven himself worthy of inheriting the Hebi wa yōshanai, the chokuto of the Disciples. Now doing missions his true cold heartedness rang true, he was terrifying on the field of battle, he was a blur that only left the mist of crimson in his wake. Even his own comrades felt the chill of terror run up their spines. This continued for another five years until one day he was confronted by Tsurugi Habakiri, a woman of remarkable skill that Kitsuya truly admired. He listened to her speak, hanging on every word as she explained her goal. The cold stare lit up with excitement as the enticing allure of power tugged on the fabric of his soul. He immediately agreed, needing no time to think it over or finish listening to her reasoning. Now he has become a traitor to the Disciples under Tsurugi Habakiri's leadership, he was now her assassin that would lead from the shadow's towards her goal.
