First Character: Tayuya
Name: Kat
Email: kat@cursed-melody.net
Contact Info: matsum0m0 @ AIM
Character: Tayuya // Naruto
Character Age: 14
Dead or Alive: Dead.

Personality: Brash, rude, foul-mouthed, and highly intelligent, Tayuya is probably the worst person to run into at any given time. She's an expert in genjutsu and can mindfuck you to hell and back, but it slightly overconfident. Despite this, she's a genious strategist and can outwit most anyone she comes across. Tayuya has the mouth of a sailor and was constantly reprimended for it by her teammates, to which she usually replied with the snarkiest of comments, none of them fighting back against it. Tayuya prefers having control and taking charge of things in situations, because she feels that those around her are much too stupid to do so on their own.

Background: Guardian of the North Gate, Tayuya is one of Orochimaru's four personal bodyguards and branded with his Curse Seal. Not much is given on where Tayuya came from or grew up, save for the fact that she was born on February 15th and was fourteen years old at the time of her death. Otherwise, all we know is that she was taken in by Orochimaru and trained to be an extraordinary fighter, royally owned Uchiha Sasuke, and thus helped convince him to come with she and the Sound Four (number five was not present at the time.) back to Orochimaru to gain power beyong that of the Sound Four.

Tayuya fights Nara Shikamaru, the only winner of the Chuunin exams and an extremely lazy genius, and nearly kills him until Sabakuno Temari steps in to help Shikamaru. Temari uses her summon, Kamatari, to defeat Tayuya by crushing her body under a very large tree. Ouch.

RP Sample: She couldn't even remember having truely 'died,' per se, though she did remember watching as the handful of trees fell for her. It had almost been in slow motion; like watching a train wreck of sorts, when one was caught like a deer in headlights.

Damn bitch; the boy had been lucky, for had the sand whore not arrived, he'd have been long since dead.

She had to wonder, though, why she wasn't busy burning in the deepest pits of hell at the moment. In fact, since awakening, she had remained laying on the street and staring up at the old man who yelled at her for some bullshit or another.

"The fuck do you want, shitface?" She finally spoke up, tongue sharp as ever as she hopped to her feet. With a sneer, she walked toward him, cracking her knuckles ever so slowly. She usually didn't prefer fighting the elderly, but that was only because they never fought back.

"You want me out of your way, asshole? Come on. Try and fucking move me."

Then again, she wasn't fighting him. More than anything, she was only beating him up.

Second Character: Inoue Orihime
Name: Kat
Email: kat@cursed-melody.net
Contact Info: matsum0m0 @ AIM
Character: Inoue Orihime // Bleach
Character Age: 15
Dead or Alive: Alive.

Personality: Bubbly, Cheerful, Over-Imaginative and Happy can not begin to describe Orihime. Despite her clumsiness, she's actually very booksmart, and manages to score in the top ten every time she takes a major test. Orihime makes friends easily and cares deeply for those close to her; she'll do anything to protect them. While Orihime isn't especially strong (really, she's not strong at all physically) she's an incredible healer.

Background:Orihime lives by herself in Karakura, where the story takes place, and is supported by relatives living elsewhere. Previously, she had lived with her older brother, who was fifteen years older than her. She and her brother were raised by a drunk father and a cheating mother, who always argued and beat their children to vent off steam. It is unknown if her parents are still alive.

When her brother turned 18, he ran away with Orihime, who was three years old, and raised her since. For six years, Orihime lived with her brother in harmony until he gave her a pair of hairpins, which she considered childish and refused to wear (it is later revealed that she refused to wear them because bullies picked on her and cut her hair off; she didn't want to draw attention to herself with the hairpins). On the same day, he was killed in a car accident and died in the Kurosaki clinic. Orihime has worn the hairpins ever since.

Her brother eventually became a hollow. His attachment to Orihime and the desire to protect her kept him in this world as a ghost. In the anime he was devoured by other hollows and thus was turned into a hollow. In the manga, however, his feelings of loneliness (because Orihime seemed to forget him) took hold, and he became a hollow over time in the way most hollows do. We only see him as a fully formed hollow, though. After this, he attacked Ichigo and Tatsuki, who he blamed for making Orihime forget him. She is saved by Ichigo and this event serves as the starting point for the development of her powers, even though neither she nor the reader know about it until later.

After this event, Rukia stepped in and erased Orihime's memory of the incident, but it was later revealed during a duel between Ichigo and Ishida that Orihime had never really forgotten the previous battle. Instead, she simply refused to remember it because she couldn't bear seeing her brother Sora and Ichigo fight each other.

RP Sample: Bouncing (quite literally) along a sidewalk, Inoue Orihime held a large bag infront of her chest. Passerbys could only really see the girl's bright eyes, as the rest of her face was completely covered by piled-up food that threated to fall from the bag. She didn't seem bothered by this, though; somehow, she managed to keep the food balanced. She always did.

On top of that, this dinner was special; Tatsuki had no idea that Chizuru, Orihime and the other girls of the class (Even Ice Queen Kuneida) had joined forces to plan a huge surprise birthday bash for her best friend. Chizuru and Tatsuki were currently finishing up some soccer practice - something Chizuru would probably exhaust herself doing, but loved watching when it came to girls' soccer - and Orihime had to hurry home to prepare.

"Ah!" She gasped as she walked in through the front door, Asano Keigo practically jumping her in celebration as Rukia experimentally blew a kazoo; then proceeded to question Ichigo as to why a duck's mating call was considered a festive sound.

"Oh no! I'm not Tatsuki-chan!" Keigo jumped off of her, awkwardly, before Orihime burst into laughter at the expression on his face. She bowed, then hurried into the kitchen. Just thirty minutes more.

Unloading her grocery bag, Orihime looked over her inventory: cake mix, icing, butter, Milk, Tomatoes, cranbarries, ketchup, pickles, noodles, fish, rice, and a loaf of cuban bread.

Perfect. The triple-layer birthday cake would be her best to date.

"Here we go!"

Minutes later, an eruption from the kitchen caused the whole room to stir. None moved, but when Kuneida commented on it simply being Orihime, the others sighed and went back to their activities.

Third Character; Matsumoto Rangiku
Name: Kat
Email: kat@cursed-melody.net
Contact Info: matsum0m0 @ AIM
Character: Matsumoto Rangiku // Bleach
Character Age: ???
Dead or Alive: Dead.

Personality:An easy-going, free-spirited slacker, Rangiku is a heavy contrast to her Captain, Hitsugaya Toushirou. She seems a little selfish, but has proven to indeed care for others time and time again; observing her captain's care for his friend, Hinamori Momo, her own concerns towards Hinamori, her feelings on matters concerning Ichimaru Gin, and her sympathy for Inoue Orihime later in the storyline. She's also an alchoholic and knows no limits when it comes to booze. Her top drinking buddies are Kira Izuru and Hisagi Shuuhei, and the three are often sloshed within an hour of being together.

Rangiku is extremely loyal to her captain, despite any hints of her wishing to try and do something about Ichimaru against Hitsugaya's wishes. She has never abandoned nor betrayed Hitsugaya in any way and never intends to.

Background: Not much is known about Rangiku's background as not much has been revealed as of yet. One can safely assume that she was born in Rukongai, where she met Ichimaru Gin after he saved her as a child. The two became close friends, but gradually, Gin grew distant; he barely even spoke to her during the Soul Society arc.

The details of Rangiku's move from Rukongai to Seireitei remain unknown, as well. There are absolutely no scenes documenting her time at the Shinigami academy or when Rangiku was promoted to the position of vice captain, though many believe that she was the vice captain of the tenth division before Hitsugaya became captain.

RP Sample: Oh, god.

Her head.

She groaned, walking through the halls of tenth division headquarters. Her feet, covered in tabi socks that were threatening to sloppily slip off, dragged themselves sluggishly along until they stopped before the door of Hitsugaya's office. She shut her eyes, then opened them, a tired haze covering the otherwise blank stare. Running a hand through her bangs, Rangiku walked in, completely forgetting to knock.

"Captain," she greeted him, only to be met with a cold glare. She refrained from rolling her eyes as she slumped onto the couch that she had practically claimed as her own, peeking over it to look to his desk.

"You should have knocked."

"Aa~." she sank down along the couch, a slightly exaggerated mixture of a whine emitting from her. "You act as if we hardly know eachother. That's hurtful, Captain!" her own voice was making her ears ring, and she shuts her eyes, holding them closed and groaning once more. "Don't think I'll be up for work today. Shuuhei challenged me to a drinking game again."

Without even seeing her Captain, she felt him roll his eyes in silent disapproval. He wasn't surprised; why would he be? The drinking parties had gotten worse ever since.. well.

Neither of them were in the mood to think about that.

Stretching out onto the couch, Rangiku let out a sigh, looking up to the ceiling of the room. It had been a while since she'd seen it, and she knew she had missed it; this office was like her second bedroom, as she would often times retreat to it rather than her room. It wasn't a sanctuary to her or anything, just, it was easier to get to than her room was.

"Captain?"

He raised his eyes, and she set a hand onto the top of the couch, using it to pull herself up. Resting her chin onto it, she said, "When you're old enough, I'm going to take you drinking. Sugar rushes from Ukitake-taichou's candy is nothing compared to some hard liquor," She grinned slightly at his scowl.

"I'm not a kid, Matsumoto!"

She laughed, then fell back onto the couch, sprawling out onto it. "Right. And I'm a B Cup."

Again, she didn't even have to look. She could practically feel the spikes prickling up along the tips of his hair. With a snicker, she rolled onto her side and curled up, easily dozing off before he could say anything else.

Fourth Character: Orochimaru
Name: Kat
Email: kat@cursed-melody.net
Contact Info: matsum0m0 @ AIM
Character: Matsumoto Rangiku // Bleach
Character Age: ???
Dead or Alive: Dead.

Personality: Orochimaru is a twisted, manipulative, and ruthless man, whose prime ambition is to become "the ultimate being" by achieving immortality and knowledge of all jutsu in the world. While technically a Jounin, as it was the last rank he made in Konoha before defecting, his abilities are obviously far beyond those of the average Jounin, and even those of some Kage-level ninja. He relishes conflict and unrest. He's known for experimenting on shinobi -- more popularly so for his experimentation on masses of children due to their youth and fresh organs -- many fear Orochimaru, and rightfully so.

baked_miwa on August 15th, 2006 11:52 pm (UTC)
Re: Fourth Character: Orochimaru
Background: Orochimaru was originally a student of Sarutobi (who was also the Third Hokage) as a part of a three-man team containing himself, Jiraiya and Tsunade. He was considered the most talented out of the three and Sarutobi had high hopes for him, often berating the clumsy Jiraiya and telling him he should be more like Orochimaru; he hoped that one day, Orochimaru would succeed him.

While Orochimaru's ambitions did include becoming Hokage, his eyes were set upon goals quite alien to the ideals traditionally associated with the title and emphatically embraced by his teacher. For Orochimaru, Hokage was nothing more than a potential conquest on the way to what truly interested him - power.

Sarutobi hoped to make his student see the error of his ways, but the more time that passed, the more it became clear that Orochimaru was a lost cause. This culminated in Orochimaru kidnapping his fellow Konoha shinobi as human guinea pigs. He experimented on them to develop techniques that would grant him immortality, as he had already decided that he would settle for no less than to learn all jutsu in the world, a task that would take much more than one human lifetime. When all of the disappearances led to Orochimaru, Sarutobi knew that it was his duty to kill his former student

Realizing that he had hit a dead end in his quest to become the ultimate being and had nothing to gain from staying in Konoha, Orochimaru defected from the village and joined the elite criminal organization Akatsuki. His old teammate, Jiraiya, tried to convince him to reconsider, but to no avail - he betrayed the village and the title of the 'Three Legendary Leafs' was no more, though he is still known as one of the Legendary Three. The role Orochimaru played in Akatsuki is unclear, as are his reasons for leaving sometime later (it's implied that Itachi Uchiha's growing power was somewhat responsible). He eventually founds his own village, Otogakure.

For a while, Orochimaru left Konoha alone, plotting to destroy them when he was ready. The opportunity presented itself with the start of the Chunin exams. With this, Orochimaru saw both a chance to destroy his former home and acquire Sasuke Uchiha's body as his own. Having Sasuke's body would give him the Sharingan, which would aid him greatly in his ultimate goal.

With the help of the Sunagakure, Orochimaru was able to infiltrate the chuunin exams and brand Sasuke with the cursed seal.

During the final part of the Chunin exams, Orochimaru starts his attack, hoping to unleash giant snakes outside Konoha while Shukaku is released from Gaara within the stadium. Things do not go as planned, however, and only the first of these occurs. During the attack, Orochimaru attempts to assassinate the Third Hokage. After a long battle, the Third Hokage sacrificed himself to seal Orochimaru's arms, preventing him from using any more techniques. Orochimaru's forces were also being repelled by the sudden appearance of all of Konoha's most powerful ninja, forcing a retreat.

Initially, Orochimaru planned to have his condition healed by appealing to his old teammate, Tsunade, who had since become a legendary medical ninja. He offered to revive her brother and boyfriend, both of whom died in battle, hoping it would persuade her to cooperate. Though it looks like he succeeds at first, it turns out that Tsunade actually intended to kill him rather than heal him. Kabuto interferes before she can do so. Strangely, Orochimaru almost seems hurt by the betrayal, and remarks that he really would have brought her loved ones back.

This leads to a large-scale battle between the legendary three, in which Orochimaru retreats.

Orochimaru takes on a new container, Genryumaru, while the Sound Four retrieve Sasuke for him.

Most recently, Orochimaru once again met with Naruto, allowing a sort of tragic reunion between Sasuke and Naruto; of which he retreats once more.

First Character: Hisagi Shuuhei.
Name: Roppie.
Email: redheadanime201@yahoo.com.
Contact Info: Ropponmatsu3 // N/A // N/A.
Character: Hisagi Shuuhei; Bleach.
Character Age: N/A.
Dead or Alive: Dead.
Personality: All of cool and collective, Hisagi Shuuhei is a man of labor by day, let loose by night. Despite his wild markings and plentiful jewelry that lends him the punkish appearance, he is mature with a finely developed set of morals that makes him a man's man-- when he's not drunk, anyhow. That said, he still lacks in the knowledgable category, as he isn't exactly the brightest bulb in the box when it comes to factual tests and the like.

He isn't entirely mean without reason, but he's still quick to spark a snarky or sarcastic comment. His sense of humor tends to be a little dry, and he's quick to mock when his mood is right. He's a rational person and doesn't usually act on a quick temper, but at the same time doesn't have much tolerance for utter stupidity.

Background: The scars marking the right of his face is enough for a full story; he'd always been a talented guy from the start of his shinigami training at the academy. Shuuhei was promised a seat among the Gotei 13 right after graduation, and so the only thing holding him back was the ability to pass a test. He managed, though.

It was somewhat of an honor to be graced with the leader-position for that trip, as his class was to guide the first years into the Material World for training purposes. While he was honored, he wasn't all too surprised, and so he entered with confidence and assurance of a safe trip. With his trusted colleagues by his sides, he entered the Material World fearlessly.

And before he knew it, all hell broke loose. Before his eyes, a girl named Kanisawa had been killed by an unexpected huge hollow, and in a bout of revenge, Aoga was the second. Convinced he was alone to fight, he braced himself and readied for what could possibly be his last few moments of life. A huge hollow struck its claws at his face, and when he thought it was over for good, three freshmen, who he now acknowledged as his comrades, saved his life.

Some time later, he lived as the Ninth Division's fukutaichou under Kaname Tousen, one he found himself completely loyal to, as his vision of a world without violence seemed... pretty swell. Unfortunately, the way he went about achieving his vision wasn't so swell. Convinced that his former taichou is only confused, Shuuhei finds himself determined to bring him back.

RP Sample: As the days wore on, Shuuhei found himself visiting this sight quite often. His eyes would gaze idly on the grave before him, as he continuously contemplated for an answer, only to receive none every time he searched. To think that this was the same man who preached justice, to think that this was the same man who served as his taichou... It seemed almost like a bad dream, but another obstacle he'd have to carry himself over.

Even with Komamura's assistance, it would seem as if they reached to the point of nowhere.

He would glance at his zanpakutou and finger the leather that wrapped around the hilt. Knowing Bankai would've been helpful.

But he didn't, and the longer he gazed at this grave, the sooner he would come to the conclusion that he was Hisagi Shuuhei, the man who could only do what he could do, despite what he really wanted. He would think back to his suboridinates and regret the day he let them go, and think back to Tousen's departure. He let him go, too, didn't he?

He was Hisagi Shuuhei, the man who could only do what he could do. As far as he was concerned, he could find the strength to bring him back, and he would. The only thing holding him back was time.

Character: Kurosaki Ichigo (Bleach)
Character Age: 16 (Sophomore)
Dead or Alive: Alive..ish?

Personality: Smart, Caring, Loyal and Irritable. He acts cool and calm with a smart lip, but is easily shy around girls. His shyness leads to stuttering or weird insults. Since he has orange hair, he tries to mislead everyone by getting good grades. He cares deeply for his family and would fight to the death for them.

Background: Ever since his mother died, Ichigo could see ghosts. During his freshman year of highschool, this power got considerably stronger--and coincidentally it hit a peak when he met Kuchiki Rukia--a shinigami assigned to his town. After meeting her, a hollow attacked his family and Rukia took a blow to save Ichigo.

Ichigo took Rukia's sword to save his family--and ended up stealing away all of her powers. He continued on to fight hollows in his town to save the innocent, meeting a few friends on the way until Kuchiki Rukia was brought back to a place called 'Soul Society', to have her executed.

Before Ichigo approached the realm to simply run in and fight, he trained with Urahara Kisuke, a mysterious shop owner and became his own form of shinigami--earning his sword's name, Zangetsu.

Ichigo pursued Rukia alongside his friends(Inoue, Ishida, Chad, and a wee kitty) fighting his way through Soul Society and getting stronger and stronger. As Ichigo made his way to the final fight, he had gotten so powerful that he was at the level of a Captain, baffling a number of the Gotei 13 and proving his worth. During the course of these events, Ichigo kept finding a mask in his clothing which looked oddly like a Hollow's mask. After Ichigo had beaten Kuchiki Byakuya, Aizen Sousuke revealed his plans and he had tussled with Ichigo--almost killing him by severing him in the waist.

Though Ichigo was down for the count, Aizen Sousuke was eventually cornered and forced to retreat immediately with his prize, the hougyoukou, which could break the boundaries between human souls and hollow souls.

Returning to the human world with Rukia safe and everything in order, Ichigo expected his life to go somewhat easier until new beings called 'Arrancar' appeared, and a 'Vaizard' called Shinji revealed himself. Losing the first fight against the Arrancar, Ichigo tried to train alongside Rukia, but it was useless. Once he got to the next fight, Ichigo was left powerless and ultimately weak attempting to beat Grimmjow--who had nearly killed Rukia.

Feeling at a loss due to his inability to beat Grimmjow--Ichigo sought Shinji who wanted to recruit Ichigo for his powers. That's where Ichigo learned about the Hollow's mask and managed to get stronger, if only for a short duration of time during a fight. Though Ichigo hadn't beaten Grimmjow--he felt closer than ever before.

RP Sample:

Strolling down the hallway of the upper floor of his home, Kurosaki Ichigo rounded towards the stairway and stepped down--promptly dodging the upwards tackle delivered by his father, Kurosaki Isshin.

" Ichigo!" called his father, his arms crossed hugging the air, since Ichigo had slid right past him. Ichigo didn't respond to his cry, descending the staircase while looking right past his father, " Oi, Ichigo! You remember you have a curfew, you rebellious youth! My dear daughter, Yuzu, will be disheartened if you eat her cooking when it's cold and doughy, not warm and doughy!".

Ichigo gave his father a bland stare before leaving the house and going downtown to lessen his boredom. All his experience told him that if he looked for fun, it wouldn't come. If he just wandered aimlessly in whatever direction--it was bound to come for him; though, that theory worked pretty well for Hollows too.

" Guess who!?" Ichigo felt hands slide in front of his eyes--and he instinctively kicked the person behind him right in the throat. He heard a whine and a choking noise, looking down to see Keigo sprawled next to Mizuiro choking violently.

" Keigo, Mizuiro. What's up?" Ichigo inquired, as if he hadn't just brutalized his friend.

Second Character: Haruno Sakura.
Name: Roppie.
Email: redheadanime201@yahoo.com.
Contact Info: Ropponmatsu3 // N/A // N/A.
Character: Haruno Sakura; Bleach.
Character Age: Fifteen.
Dead or Alive: Alive.
Personality: Like any kunoichi should be, Haruno Sakura is full of unwavering spirit and confidence. Unlike her early days as a genin, she is a bit more mature and focused on her training with a determination to grow stronger. While she's become more accepting of her appearance, she still doesn't take insults very lightly, but she's a bit more lenient when it comes to ridiculous statements or questions that she would've freaked out at had she been genin.

Overall, she's level-headed and rational, and is aware of what her duties are. Her relationships with the people she's known for a while are established to the point where she would willingly make a sacrifice if it was for their benefit.

Background: The highlight of Sakura's life hadn't really taken place until she was in her early teenage years, besides taking the role of the victim in her childhood years due to her abnormally large forehead. With an inferiority complex when it came to beauty and grace, she persisted on covering her face to hide the faulty quality. It wasn't until she met a blonde girl, Ino, who opened her up to the world. Giving her a ribbon to tie her hair back, she was told not to 'play their game' and to show off what she did have.

Naturally, she was grateful to Ino. Always envious and looking up to her new friend, it was like they'd become sisters, but as time dwindled on, she was starting to feel inferior, again. After all, she was always looking up to Ino, but she never felt as if she were an equal. When it was revealed that she had a crush on the same guy as her, Sakura made it a point to consider herself a rival, for she was growing up, and it was time for her to surpass Ino.

And for a while, that's all she was about: getting Sasuke. But with her thoughts clouded by her crush, her performance wasn't top-notch, even with her exceptional knowledge and equally exceptional chakra control. It seemed for a while that she'd dedicated herself to her looks and overall impressing Sasuke, only to find herself getting rescued and taking the back seat. During the second part of the chunin exams, it dawned upon her like a revelation to get her act together and know what being a kunoichi was all about.

Bruises, cuts, scratches, and a hair cut later, she was to face off against her rival, and ultimately prove her kunoichi spirit, not that little girl who followed the easiest path. While the match resulted in a tie, even Ino had to admit that she'd 'blossomed into a beautiful flower', referring to their past as children, when Ino told her that she had yet to bloom. While most of their differences had been settled, Sasuke was still a touchy subject.

Speaking of Sasuke, there came a time when he betrayed the village to settle himself under Orochimaru. In a desperate attempt to keep him back, she poured her heart and soul into her words, and that even if he had to leave, then at least she should be there with him. Only receiving words of gratitude in the end, she was left on her own, ending up pleading for Naruto to bring him back.

As time went on, she eventually found herself training under Tsunade. With her aforementioned excellent control of chakra, she was trained as a medic nin, and is now much more powerful and way more focused than ever, sometimes said with the potential to surpass the fifth Hokage, herself.

As far as Sasuke goes, even she doesn't quite know how she feels, as finding her purpose and becoming stronger has become more of a priority than sharing a romantic relationship with him. While she still vows to bring him back, she is also willing to put him through any pain necessary if it means protecting those on her team.

Meanwhile, Sakura had been one of the three persons to be granted the mission to deliver a small, tight package. She wasn't sure what was inside, and it probably wasn't her business, but considering Tsunade's voice, it must've been important. With that in mind, she'd set off in all seriousness, and her goal was to help complete the objective.

Unfortunately, things hadn't turned out quite so smoothly.
yhaythar on August 16th, 2006 10:43 pm (UTC)
Second Character: Haruno Sakura. Part Two.

RP Sample: This had to have been the fourth... thing she'd faced that hour. While she wasn't at all fatigued, she did find herself becoming more and more annoyed with each encounter. As one hand gripped on the handle of her kunai, another hand was held out in preparation. She wanted desperately to find out what in the world had happened, and if it had anything at all to do with the mission she'd been sent on (in which case, she rather feared contacting Tsunade), but now she had some other things to deal with.

Mindlessly gathering what she recognized as her chakra, she ran for the hollow and sliced the kunai through what was supposed to be its arm. Using its piercing scream as its distraction, she flung a series of shuriken its way and sprinted in for the final blow.

That was the last one for a while, and as it disintegrated into a thousand particles, she gazed hard where the heap was supposed to be. A new mission had greeted her with a smack in the face, and that was to contact Naruto and Sai as soon as she could. She would collect facts along the way.

First Character: Deidara
Name: Ellie/Yuki
Character: Deidara
Character Age: N/A (I think he's around maybe 17 or 18 as he's the youngest, most wildest in Akatsuki! XD)
Dead or Alive: Aliiiive!!!
Personality: Psychotic with a short attention span, cowed by strength but strong himself. (He's a clear sufferer of SDS XDDD)
He's quickly annoyed, likes things to be short, flashy and explosive rather than long, perfect, and subtle. Style over substance, though not without substance!
Background:
No one knows what happened in Deidara's life before Akatsuki, so that remains a secret. What we do know is that, he loves...art, clay, even! As he says, "Art is a bang, yeah!"

Deidara has been with Tobi, his new partner since Sasori died trying to catch the three tails. He succesfully captured the Ichibi, the one tailed Tanuki and has been travelling around with Tobi whom he thought was so annoying.

(I'm so so so terribly sorry about that Background info, it sucks to hell D: don't sue me! I just came back from work and I'm drunk D: well not really drunk, kinda tipsy D:)

RP Sample:
Deidara sighed in annoyance, "Tobi! Stop being a moron, yeah! You're Akatsuki now, and you can't catch a fish, un!?" Deidara asked impatiently, roughly moving Tobi out of the way while rolling up his sleeves.

"Saori would do this in one second, un!" He grumbled, blowing his blond hair out of his sky blue eye. He watched the fish move around under the water slowly, scanning them, watching until he would attack, waiting for the right moment.


Next to him, Tobi remained quiet, letting Deidara get the fish.


Ah!

He moved his arm into the water faster than the eye could follw, quickly grabbing a fish with ease. He grinned as he pulled it out of the water, watchign as it flapped about in his hand, its mouth moving up and down.


He got a stone and hit the fish, hard. Satisfied, he looked at Tobi. "That's how you catch a fish, un!" He said proudly, rocking back up, going back to their camp fire.

(Again, don't sue me! *Wanders to bed while yawning* Besides, the only thing I could give you is like my cigarettes *shrug* hey actually I don't even have them! HAAH *cough*)

Name: Shia
Email: kendo_fiend@hotmail.com
Contact Info: Kendo Fiend; N/A; N/A
Character: Hitsugaya Toushirou
Character Age: N/A
Dead or Alive: Dead

Personality:

Hitsugaya is generally mature and serious, likely due to a need to exert his presence in a heirarchy where he might appear otherwise outclassed. A stern leader, who knows how to both give and take orders. However, he regularly exhibits spurts of immaturity, particularly where his Vice Captain is concerned; he dislikes her shoddy worth ethics, and claims disgust at her prodigious assets.

Background:

Hitsugaya comes from Junrinan, District 1 of Rukongai. He lived with an old woman and Hinamori Momo. As a young child, Hitsugaya enjoyed eating watermelons and picking on Hinamori, calling her "Bed-Wetter Momo" as a counter to "Shirou-chan." In spite of their quarreling, he developed strong feelings of kinship-- determined to protect her at any cost. He is also friends with the gate-keeper Jidanbou, being the one who taught him the city rules.

Having such natural talent despite his young age, he entered the Academy shortly after Hinamori. She still called him "Shirou-chan," much to his annoyance, and promised only to call him "Hitsugaya-kun" after he achieved shikai and was recognized as a full-fledged shinigami.

Apparently, however, he soon went on to greater feats-- reaching bankai, and becoming Captain of the 10th Division. He is currently the youngest Captain of the Gotei 13, and is very keen on his duties.

RP Sample:

It'd been several hours since Matsumoto-fukutaichou had dropped in, and the boy had yet to rest. Whether this was on account of the fact that Yoruichi-san was due to be showing up at any given moment, or his own stubborn obstinance, he could not be sure. His only assuage was that, perhaps, he would not be repeating the same story for a third time in a row. No, he had called Yoruichi in for a different matter entirely. Something... far more personal, for the tan-skinned woman.

"Come in, come in," He murmured, in as loud a voice as he could muster. His tiny hands trembled as he pushed aside the day's stack of paperwork. He slowly rose to his feet, feeling strangely as if it weren't very appropriate to stay sitting in her presence, somehow.

He idly scratched at the corner of his mouth, wondering as to how best he could approach the subject. But in the end, he decided to be blunt, and his arm fell to his side, as if echoing the sentiment. "I have some information for you," He announced. "A name. A reputation. And perhaps a little more, come next week, if I can coax it out of our visitor; it's not for any lack if willingness, but memory is a fickle thing."

Name: Shia
Character: Hatake Kakashi
Character Age: 29
Dead or Alive: Alive

Personality:

Chronically tardy, Kakashi initially appears to be flaky and unreliable. He is, however, an exceptionally skilled ninja, a child prodigy who attained Chuunin rank at the age of 6 and became a Jounin at age 13. Relaxed and confident, he enjoys giving his students the opportunity to learn for themselves.

Background:

His father was Hatake Sakumo, known as the "White Fang" of Konoha, and a genius ninja on par with the Legendary Sannin. During his earlier days, he was partnered with a girl named Rin, and Uchiha Obito. During a mission, Kakashi injured his left eye in a battle trying to protect Obito, an action which leaves his left eye both scarred and blind. When Obito later attempts to return the favor, he is crushed beneath a falling rock. Mortally wounded, he offers Kakashi his Sharingan-capable and suitably intact left eye as a belated promotion present and final gift. Rin successfully transplants Obito's left eye, replacing Kakashi's useless left eye.

Following the war, Kakashi earned renowned fame for his use of the Sharingan and developed a reputation for failing every potential Genin team that took the Survival Training Exam he proctored.

The initial results of the Survival Training Exam for Team 7 were unpromising. Naruto's impulsiveness, Sakura's tunnel vision focus on Sasuke and Sasuke's arrogant superiority and lone-wolf attitude resulted in a lack of teamwork, which led them to fail the Survival Training Exam. Given a second chance, an uncharacteristic display of teamwork impressed Kakashi enough to pass the team, the first Genin team he had ever passed.

Kakashi's controversial decision to permit Naruto, Sasuke, and Sakura to take the Chūnin exam surprised many, who believed that Kakashi should have given the team another year to prepare. Yet, through this decision, the team begins to truly realize their potential to be ninja. By the end of the second stage, the three exhibit signs of extensive growth from their extreme ordeals.

With Kakashi now called on by the village to take more A and S level missions due to the current manpower shortage, Sasuke's defection to Orochimaru, Naruto's three year apprenticeship to Jiraiya, and Sakura's medical apprenticeship to Tsunade, the Fifth Hokage, it seems that Team 7 is currently defunct.

Yet, after two and a half years, Naruto and Jiraiya return to the village earlier than expected because of the impatience of Akatsuki at capturing Naruto for his Kyūbi no Yōko. Kakashi forms a team with Naruto and Sakura again. However, the relationship between the three is no longer master and students, but equal teammates.

RP Sample:

The midday sun shone warm against his upper cheek, filling him with a sense of lethargy like he had not felt in quite some time. The flat of his stomach pressed against hard earth, lean and lanky body well-hidden amidst the rushes. The silence was pervading.

From time to time, he would turn the page of a small orange book. The outline of his lips could be seen against the mesh covering, curved upwards at such an angle as could only be interpreted as a broad smirk.

He'd gone out to get groceries, at Sakura's request. But the weather had been too good, and the scenery too relaxing...

And thus, Hatake Kakashi once more found himself lost on the path of life.
