Personality: Bakou is a destined captain, a man with a great sense of leadership. He may have low regard toward human life but he never leaves a comrade behind, often seeing those he trusts more important than the money he so loves. Indeed, he claims the love of his life is the goods who gains from working for different people, not caring whether the job required a certain amount of deaths or misery. He isn't a psychopath, just an opportunist and simply finds causes such as the Akatsuki pointless and a simple source of trouble. He's also a very cautious man, he considers his main weapons, explosives, to be highly unpredictable and probably the most dangerous weapons to use in a battlefield, which is why he refers to more defensive maneuvers when using explosion release. His intelligence isn't the greatest known to man, but he is a practical man who knows his way around and won't be fooled by the average con artists or ambushes from ambitious bounty hunters.
History: From his early childhood, Bakou was placed in a special Iwagakure training facility in order to refine his explosion release capacities and later become a prominent member of the Iwagakure Explosion Corp. The training was harsh and there was barely any time for him to actually develop like the average teen his age, which later led him to becoming a greedy and yet resourceful man. Near adulthood, having lived an almost empty childhood when it came to human contact and healthy mental development, he entered the corp and was immediately assigned to life risking missions where he saw many comrades lose their lives in battle or even more often, during daily activities. This is the cause for high precautions involving explosives and all unpredictable weaponry.
At the age of 25, he'd gain a high rank after being the only survivor of an S rank mission, the rest of his teammates, being people he had to escort and assist with his explosives all died by the hands of enemy nin. He was decorated for this 'cause' he was protecting, the honor and safety of the village. It cost the lives of those who trusted him and he trusted them in return. Disgusting, he saw it. Eventually, upon seeing different acts of corrupt individuals, he'd make his own cause consisting of neglecting all other causes and simply surviving in this cruel world. Having no love in his life, child to care for, close friend to confine in, he didn't really have anything else to turn to other than himself, hence why he'd take such a selfish decision and work only to benefit his very existence and survive whether it'd cost the pecious lives of others.
The current Tsuchikage isn't unknown to Bakou as they both shared a common trait when it came to explosives. Though Bakou wouldn't share any form of emotion for the Tsuchikage, he wouldn't appreciate the past of his village nor would he accept these senseless objectives they fit into the skulls of pawn shinobi simply dressed for the slaughter, sacrificed for the 'cause' of the village. Peace and Prosperity. Eventually, he'd walk out. Though his face would be put up for a bounty, he'd at some point pay his own village as well as the villages he'd have harmed to leave him be, though often he finds himself in a situation where he's got to pay in order to avoid a public execution. Currently he remains in Yugakure with a pack of other freelancers and takes on mission, whether they're from villages or notorious groups, he doesn't care, just like the skin color of people. People will be people, societies will be societies, no matter what. He only sees one objective, filling his pockets in order to survive.
Name of Weapon or Item: Confetti Kunai
Description: It's an average Kunai that appears like any other. When thrown, it doesn't explode or anything though whenever the user desires, they can activate all of the scattered Confetti Kunai and have their handle pop only to release a bunch of confetti on the field. The confetti are of course a bunch of small explosive tags that alone can't do much but in high quantities can dismember quite easily.
The basic Kunai
Name of Weapon or Item: The Safety Seal
Description: A seal placed on each of the user's palms. They prevent the explosion of any of the explosive they use unless they would be activated by the user's chakra via their hand seals. This means that only the user can cause their own explosives to explode, no matter the circumstance.
Appearance: The shape of the seal resembles Iwagalure's Explosion Corp's logo.
========================================= Special Traits
Bakou is a man who gives a lot of importance to observation without necessarily being a very intelligent man. He wields a Kekkei Genkai that makes him very familiar with explosives. He has an average amount of chakra and a relatively great control due to his enhanced training with elements. Though he isn't very agile nor versatile when it comes to using his entire body, he's proven to have relatively his dexterity and precision in what he uses in fights.
Name of Kekkei Genkai:Explosion release Description: The link. It slightly enhances the blast radius of explosive tags but doesn't not promote their power.
Name of Technique: Bakuton: Festive Display Type of Jutsu: Ninjutsu Rank: B Range: Mid Nature Type: Bakuton Handseals: Serpent Description: The user uses the user casts the Serpent hand seal to have a circle of small explosions occur around them, the circle being as large as 10 meters of radius. The explosions are completely harmless in every way as they erupt from the earth but release no intense heat or debris. The smoke has a special characteristic as it works slightly different from most would believe. From outside, the smoke would be all black, blocking most external views. However, whoever stands withing the circle of smoke would see the smoke as clear as water, like tinted windows if we were to compare it. It is a powerful way to remain hidden from outsiders. Weakness: It lasts for five seconds before the smoke simply vanishes. Anyone can jump to see just above the smoke thus allowing them to see whatever is in it. Can easily be blown away as well.
Name of Technique: Bakuton: Clearing Type of Jutsu: Ninjutsu Rank: C Range: Any Nature Type: Bakuton Handseals: Kai Description: The user uses their kai hand seal to not detonate a bomb but rather re-detonate a used up bomb. Though of course the second explosion is far from being lethal to even a fly. The technique works as followed: After an explosion occurs, the explosion's point of origin will be able to explode a second time under the form of a weak release of pressure that wouldn't even affect the weakest of beings. The sole purpose of this is to swiftly rid the area from the smoke and debris blocking anyone's view after an explosion. Weakness: N/A
Name of Technique: Bakuton: Prompt professional Type of Jutsu: Ninjutsu Rank: B Range: Close Nature Type: Bakuton Handseals: N/A Description: The user, having a keen sense of knowledge when it comes to explosives, can 'hack' into explosive tags of others and prevent them from exploding. By having an aura of his Bakuton chakra cover a radius of five meters around him, he can stop the detonation of any explosive tag or any other form of explosive withing that aura and eventually even turn that weapon into his own. Techniques revolving around using explosives can also be halted by this depending on the strength of the technique. We can take the C series for example, C1 can easily be stopped by this ability but further above won't work at all. Weakness: N/A
Name of Technique: Bakuton: Rocket Feet Type of Jutsu: Ninjutsu Rank: C Range: Close Nature Type: Bakuton Handseals: N/A Description: Unlike its fist counterpart, it isn't a very lethal technique when directed to an enemy. In most case it'll just push the enemy away. However, it can also serve as propeller when used from the ground to perform fast or high jumps. This can also use this to swiftly change directions in the air and travel quickly to the designated direction. It must be noted that if he were to land on someone, his feet connected on the adversary and is aiming toward the earth, the technique suddenly becomes extremely deadly as it can easily cause the complete destruction of the spinal cord. (Though it must be noted that such a feat is extremely risky to perform.) Weakness: A two post cool down after each usage.
It was a cold day in the middle of autumn, the wind was barely existent in these whereabouts. The Fyuzako lake was calm, as per usual, respecting its urban legend of only waking up every millennium during the awakening of a new being that would impact this world. The lake would be said to cause floods across the land, hence why no village nor even a single cabin would be find within miles of this wonder. A weak fog would perpetually roam in this very area, imposing an utmost disturbing sensation of being watched by some omnipresent being, some would even say it's the Lake stalking them. If one were to come alone to relax and bring no worries along, they would likely find harmony with this area and not feel this sordid feeling many dread.
Bakou was calm, and wasn't scared of some urban myth. He didn't have a single worry in his mind and thus didn't care about what could be watching him. He was actually happy to have such an absolute silence, that way he could hear the enemy coming. With his mask on, he'd presence his identity from the face of the earth and become recognizable to the woman he'd be challenged by, for very few know this man by his real face. He'd leisurely set his posterior on a large rock near the edge of the lake, grabbing a flat piece of stone right bellow his right fought. Upon checking the lake and remarking its terrifying inactivity, he'd whip his arm in such a manner that he'd toss the stone on the surface and cause it to ricochet once, twice, five times until the piece of earth would finally sink in the depths of the mighty lake. Bakou would await his opponent with great patience, throwing rocks after rocks in hopes to beat the previous high score of ricochets.
Village: Kiri [Kirigakure], Water Country. Birthplace: Kiri [Kirigakure], Water Country.
Chakra Nature: Water Release & Wind Release (More fond with Water)
Personality: Maki's personality being rather peculiar as she would have a very weird personality, the female being happy most of the time but serious at others, she sometimes even takes her joy into battle, making her seem like a weak opponent. Maki is not quick to judge a person and will never warm to a person easily, although, if you gain her trust, she's a kind hearted person. Maki is very stubborn. The female keeping her temper controlled, most of the time, she is always trying to avoid conflict and bring about peace, Maki does not believe friendly-fire is tolerable.
History:Maki being born by her parent's but raised by a man in the Kirigakure village [water country]. She allays wondered who her parents were but never told, Maki staying away from people as she preferred to be alone. the man raising her being a Sannin, the female finding this out later on in her life, she respected this male and trained under him. She later realized that she used water nature and wind nature chakra, the female noticing she was more fond with water. Luckily for her the male that she respected also used water nature chakra, the female training under him using her water nature chakra. As Maki passed to Chuunin rank, recently, the Sannin who looked after her throughout her whole life went on a S-Class mission, and never returned. The female was upset, but continued on with life, living alone, hoping he would return.
Description: This weapon is litterally a long, strong chain in which has two small-sized scythes attacthed to either side, this allows the user to throw the weapon to far distances and pull it back with ease, this weapon can also be embueded by jutsu's like 'Wind Release: Wind Vacuum Blade' allowing the weapon to spring out faster, pull back faster and penetrate deeper. Maki is fond with using this weapon and is a expert at doing so, both sides of the weapon's hilt's are both hard and rough, allowing her to get a good grip of the weapon. This weapon are comfortable to hold but are difficult to use. Maki forged it herself to fit her fighting style.
Description: Maki always keeps ten of these as she uses them alot in battle.
Name of Kekkei Genkai: Ice Release Clan:Yuki Description:The Yuki clan (Yuki Ichizoku) lived in the Land of Water. Some time ago, the country was in the midst of a civil war. In this war, different sides battled each other using ninja, some of whom possessed kekkei genkai. After the war ended, memories of the horrific battles still lingered in the minds of the people, causing wide-spread persecutions against those with kekkei genkai. Because of this, the Yuki clan, whose members carried the Ice Release kekkei genkai, went into hiding.
Hearing the tranquil atmosphere in the lake being broken by rocks ricocheting off the water, her eyes would awaken, the young female's body located at the bottom of the lake, she was relaxing and although she wouldn't admit it, she was napping. "That must be him." she thought, she had already jumped out at two regular people relaxing at the lake. Maki started to pedal her arms back and fro, causing her body to turn and face up straight, she pressed her hands together and formed a sign, her eyes closing and a clone forming beside her. The petite female mumbled in her head "Water Release: Hiding In Water Technique." her body now fading in with the water of the lake, her presence was now UN-noticeable.The clone hurl her legs up to her chest and held her knees for a brief moment before pushing her legs out with a large force, the water surrounding her would push her up, and fast, from the top of the lake in which her opponent was sitting a black dot would start to become larger and larger before the water shaped as her and appeared to be her spat out of the lake, causing water to spray in all directions. "HEY!" She shouted at her opponent, mid air, she focused a small amount of chakra into her feet, allowing her to stand on the water without falling in, she was hoping to scare him slightly, as a joke.
Something was ascending in the water, he could see it. Though he didn't have any specific eye prowess or sensory abilities, the mere fact that the lake was perpetually immobile and minuscule waves on the water that wouldn't harmonize with the rhythm of his ricochets would lead him tot he obvious conclusion. There were no fish, nor people who had the balls to hang around here, so he'd brace himself for the unfortunate appearance of his opponent. As she'd emerge from the Lake, he'd remain adamant toward her little surprising display and would only react by standing up. Giving little to no attention to the young girl, he'd slowly approach the edge of the lake, setting his combat black gloves as he took big yet slow steps. When he'd be five meters away from the dead zone, also known as the water, he'd stand in a halt and commence studying the enemy.
"You've never had good taste, huh? This appearance could have went so much better, ya' know?" he'd chuckle before continuing his little study.
A water user, interesting, apparently she could hide in water, making things extra tricky but at the same time he'd be happy to have this information about her. He'd crack his neck, pulling on his spine from left to right. This girl, he'd wonder what she could be up to. The mere idea that she'd appear like that out of the blue while having a huge advantage in the field made him wonder if he didn't walk in a trap. Either way, he didn't hesitate, he had to finish her off quick for the hourglass would already be running low.
"I'd enjoy chitchatting, but I have a schedule to respect. But out of mere sympathy, I promise to avoid a slow death." he' chuckle once more, appearing as a habit or tic each time he'd talk. He'd, as he talked to the young girl, have summoned three kunai with explosive tags wrapped around the handles thanks to his Light Flash Blade creation seal on his wrists. He'd proceed to tossing the three on his left hand, the angles employed by his well coordinated fingers would cause two to cover both the left and right of the girl, while the third would be destined to attack he directly, aiming slightly diagonally downwards in case she'd try to dive in the water. He'd be hoping to make her jump up and eventually cover her with his second set of explosives.
Considering it was only a clone she had decided to attempt to pull off a trick in which would make her seem intangible when she was really not, or at least scare him.. The trick would only most likely work on someone who wasn't as intelligent but she decided to give it a go anyway and risk giving away her position. As the Kunai came closer the clone did nothing but stand, as the Kunai came even closer the water would start to move in the lake, The real Maki was inside the water and used her jutsu Water Release: Water Colliding Wave. a wave of water started to form and gather quite close to the shore in which her opponent was standing, it would move towards him, gathering more and more water, she'd allow the Kunai to destroy the clone, not mattering if the explosive tag exploded or not, as the wave grew closer and closer she'd prepare herself to jump, she was located inside the wave by using her hidden in the water technique.

The man would perform a simple kai hand seal with his now free hand as the kunai got close to the somewhat immobile girl. He could deduce it was a decoy, considering the stupidity of such an act. There wouldn't be any smoke left from the explosion, due to his clearing ability though something else came up; a giant wave would attempt to swallow him whole. He'd grin, somewhat satisfied of this introduction. He'd deliver a powerful glare to that wave, knowing the user wouldn't be too far from it. Having little time left on his hands, he'd proceed to taking a few steps back right when his last footstep would cause a rock shelter to completely envelop him in a small hut made or rock and earth. Being a Doton, it have extra resistance to water techniques, making it a good defense for the time being.
"I swear, this kid is going to have me run for my money." he'd chuckle as per usual, weaving a hand seal in order to summon a clone of his own.
Now that he knew this was going to be one heck of a hunt, he'd bury his original self underground using the Hiding like a mole technique while the clone pretty much replaced him in the rock shelter. The clone would be an extremely dangerous explosive one, making it the best decoy imaginable as well as a possible quick kill if the girl were to do as expected and charge immediately at the Rock shelter. Bakou, being underground, would roam toward an area with less water where he he could perhaps emerge without any danger.
She forced her body out of the wave in which was about to crash into the rock shelter, she then preformed some hand signs and spoke firmly. "Ice Prism Technique." as she said this a pillar of ice would form under the rock shelter and shoot upwards, completely freezing the rock shelter and the clone inside of it, considering she though she had already won the fight she landed on her feet and allowed the water to flow naturally where it wanted, she landed on her feet on the surface of the lake and smiled "Over already?" she said, she then turned and raised two fingers on her right hand, the ice dispersing and shattering into little pieces.
