Character description

Post by Dark_Harlequin » Mon Mar 28, 2005 6:14 am

At Fugu's wish, I'm starting a character description thread.
I don't want to do this all alone so I thought we could all describe the characters one by one.

That's the way it works:

You coose a character you want to describe and describe the following points:
(I take Kakashi of Naruto dfor the examplae)

A Picture:
Image
Name:Kakashi Hatane
Nickname: The copie ninja
Supernatural abilitys ( like dragons or something):Sharingans eye
Age: ? (25?)
Hobbys: Reading come come paradise
Character traits: always to late
Short description: Kakashi is Narutos mentor, the famous copy ninja who copied over 1000 Techniques. He is a ninja genious, but he has the habbit of always comming late and allways reads " come, come paradise"


I know that Kakashi is a bad example.
But now it's your turn. Describe your favorite character and help Fugu with the work ;).[/img]
Friends are the best thing that can happen to you ;).

Bunshichi Tawara is the best!

Let's try some.

Masataka


Image

Name: Takayanagi Masataka

Fighting style: Mental Universe

Special abilities: Forged Needle, Spirit Universe Disintegrating Horse Hoove Fist (Shini Rikugou Batei Houken), Eight Way Fracas Blast (Hakka Soudoushyou), Massive Phoenix Spreading Wings Backpassing Fist

Assosiations: Memeber of the Jyuukenbu, member of the Takayanagi clan, 2nd year student at Toudou Gakuen.

Character: Good-natured and easy-going. Somewhat nerdy. Has very intense reactions toward younger girls, especially when seeing them in different states of undress. Cares very much for his father and somewhat for his estranged brother Mitsuomi.

Family: father Dougen, mother unknown, older brother Mitsuomi.

Three sizes: What's the equivalent of the "3 sizes" for men? Penis length? Masataka is infamous for coming a bit short, so to speak.

Age: 16

Descrition: A very nice and subdued person, who doesn't like to show off and who tries to be easy-going even toward enemies. Unless seriously pissed off or trying to defend friends, at which time can demonstrate amazing feats of martial arts. Is seriously fixated on his unrequited love toward Natsume Aya. Joined Jyuukenbu to get back at his older brother. Is extremely nerdy when it comes to younger girls, however older women don't seem to excite him as much.

PS The very fact that the bust-size of the chibi-Maya is known is quite unsettling. 8)

Wow, I always thought that the Miya was a typo also. So we know their mom's name now. Maya looks so much like their mom. I wonder if Makiko and Miya were ever friends?

Most people call it dragon eye, not eyes, and he and Mana didn't commit suicide, he killed her and was already dying when he used her needle to hasten it.

Here's my take on Shin, when Shin's power (the dragon eye) awoke when he was 12 he couldn't handle its effects and desperately clung to his sister Maya as a stabilizing force. When his parents decided out of fear of retribution against him and them by the other families because of him becoming unstable they decided to send him away to live with relatives. Out of fear of seperation from Maya he murdered his parents and came under the protection of Dougen Takayanagi. He was monitored by the Takayanagi's through High school as part of a plan by Dougen to make his son Mitsuomi "the true warrior" of legend. Part of this monitoring even included giving him a "girlfriend" Mana Kuzunoha. Shin seemed to stabilize and start to lead a normal life founding the Katana gang along with Bunshichi and Mitsuomi,until Maya entered high school and Shin once again started losing control of his power in order to protect Maya(and keep her from leaving him), which led to the breakup of Katana. He finally rejected Dougen and his monitoring but an attack on Maya by Dougen's associates led to his losing control again and taking out his anger on Mitsuomi, whom he feared would take Maya from him, as they had started forming a relationship, by sending an enormous amount of ki into him that though it would strengthen him shorten his life by damaging his heart. Using his power to see his own death, he let Mitsuomi beat him death at the election tournement and tried to take Mitsuomi down with him. However when Mitsuomi thwarted his plans he mortally wounded Mana(and wounded many other students) in a last ditch attempt to kill Mitsuomi before dying with Mana by using one of her accupuncture needles to hasten his death.

A little long? :oops:

Abilities: forged needle attack, and 3 minutes of superhuman heart-rate, and I wouldn't say it was greed, but a difference of opinion with his father (and Maya) on how to control the powerful red feathers, he wanted to become powerful enough to fight "fire" with "fire" instead of saving them from their power.

Do you mean 'guilt'? :? Just checking.



Name: Shin Natsume
Nickname: None ( ? )

All the Natsume siblings use Natsume Goshin-ryu, don't they? Which is a form of jiujitsu or aiki-jitsu, as far as I can tell.

Here's my take on Shin, when Shin's power (the dragon eye) awoke when he was 12 he couldn't handle its effects and desperately clung to his sister Maya as a stabilizing force. When his parents decided out of fear of retribution against him and them by the other families because of him becoming unstable they decided to send him away to live with relatives


So far so good, except that I think he only started losing it after coming into contact with Reiki. That was the primary reason he was locked up in the dungeon (which only exacerbated his condition), and he started his fixation on Maya when she visited him there to comfort him.

Don't the Takayanagi's use Aikido? At least during the coup, Dougen's bodyguards comment on him using it against Fu-Chien's mercs.

I'm guessing that Mitsuomi uses some form of kenpo along with other styles. It suits him, I think.

But it seems to me that a lot of the characters aren't just limited to one way of fighting. They just prefer to focus one--like Maya and Aya for example. Aya prefers the sword most of the time, whereas Maya seems to hold back with Reiki while favoring hand to hand more, and yet both are under Natsume Goushin Ryu.

kk1 wrote:Most people call it dragon eye, not eyes, and he and Mana didn't commit suicide, he killed her and was already dying when he used her needle to hasten it.

Maybe Mana would've slowly died, but I think Shin would've been still alive if he didn't use the needle on himself. He was after all, on the verge of totally beating up Mitsuomi and probably also Bunshichi right before that. In that respect, it was suicide for me--for Shin that is--whereas Mana probably, due to regret and guilt, decided to accept her fate and hoped to join him.

What was more important for me at this point was the fact that both made an act for themselves despite if one or the other was already dying anyway.

Huh? I don't recall that ever happening... :?

But anyway his moves are not Aikido moves. Straightforward, powerful punches and kicks. No grabs, throws, redirections, or joint-locks. Can only be a form of karate or kenpo.

Jiu-jitsu evolved primarily from the old, all-encompassing martial art of the Japanese. As such, it encompasses striking, grappling, and weapons, including a lot sword techniques. Modern jiujitsu is quite different from the traditional art taught in old Japan.

And as for Shin, as far as I'm concerned, he killed himself to be with Mana, either wholly or in part due to his guilt in killing her.

Huh? I thought that whole fight was pretty well accepted, that Mitsuomi killed him, even Maya says Mits killed her brother. Isn't that why Shin "powered" him up witht he ki blast in the first place? So he would be strong enough to kill him? He didn't just stand there and let himself be beat like that for nothing. When he knew it was the end he tried to kill Mitsuomi along with him when Mitsuomi grabbed the floor with his feet and stopped him, "Everything will end with this one punch" <gets punched, and then gets a point blank forged needle on top of it> "Death. That is what the Dragon's eye kept showing me over and over as my fate", "I've finally got you my partner for my trip to hell", "I won't die alone". "Forgive me for taking him and your tears with me" What do you think he was talking about? The only reason he was able to fight at the end(and killed Mana) was because he finally used the dragon's eye(his forged needle is even called a Dragon style spirit "boosted" forged needle). And are you saying Mana committed suicide too? How? Only Shin used the needle on himself not her, she died of her wounds. I don't see how the needle could have really done that much more damage than Mitsuomi did when he stuck his whole index finger in that same ear earlier in the fight.

I don't see how the needle could have really done that much more damage than Mitsuomi did when he stuck his whole index finger in that same ear earlier in the fight.

Hey, Shin "killed" Mitsuomi too, you know... In fact, Mitsuomi didn't truly win that fight--he was beaten like a pulp as much Shin was losing teeth earlier--but in the end, Shin ended it all himself. Shin didn't "give" Mitsuomi his 3-minute superman mode in order for the latter to kill the former. For Shin, part of that fight was to fight against the Dragon's Eye itself--to win without using it, and to win Maya. No one really won that fight, and yet in relation to that day Maya says that line.

With that said, I think the line "Mitsuomi killed my brother..." is supposed to be treated as a figurative expression, rather than as a literal claim of who killed who. On one hand it implies that something fatalistic was shaping the lives of these men, while on the other hand, it also portrays the kind of relationship they shared that led them to do what they did to each other.

"Partners in hell" indeed--in more ways than one.

And nope, I didn't say that Mana commited suicide--not even in a literal sense--but jumping in a fight like that..? And she didn't seem to regret that she had done so even after almost being torn in half by a Forged Needle. During her last moments with Shin, I do believe she was already prepared for the inevitable and accepted it. I mean, that expression on her face on the end was a mixture of regret and peace--and perhaps the same thing can be said for Shin.

Just my two cents on this matter.

I don't see how the needle could have really done that much more damage than Mitsuomi did when he stuck his whole index finger in that same ear earlier in the fight.


The finger damaged his ear. The needle punctured his brain.


With that said, I think the line "Mitsuomi killed my brother..." is supposed to be treated as a figurative expression, rather than as a literal claim of who killed who. On one hand it implies that something fatalistic was shaping the lives of these men, while on the other hand, it also portrays the kind of relationship they shared that led them to do what they did to each other.


Uhm, the whole point about Mitsuomi killing Shin is that Mitsuomi refused to heed Maya's pleas and challenged Shin to a duel. The duel which resulted in Shin killing himself. If Mitsuomi had backed off and not fought with him, Shin might conceivably be alive still. Therefore "Mitsuomi killed my brother..." Not directly, but the choices he made led to that. We can argue till the cows become steak that Shin ultimately made the choice in taking his own life after killing Mitsuomi and Mana, but it is still ultimately Mitsuomi's decision that led to him having to make that choice. Or at least things are so in Maya's eyes.

Blame it on my shoddy close reading... I read this as something related to what Maya also said about how "Mitsuomi was also killed by my brother at that time.." or something like that. Just like you however, I'm also reading this from the standpoint of choices and actions.

Admittedly, I do sound like I'm picking on straws.

I donn't have time to correct the profiles now. Thanks for the comments.

One or two points for your questins:
1 ) Ok, only Shin comited suicide and mana was already dying
2) No I ment greed, but guilt would also fit
3 ) I didn't have time to read the long take about shin, I'll do it later sorry. :oops: :cry:

Well I guess it's just a difference of opinion then but from vol 3(or 4) from Mitsuomi himself "Are you telling me to kill someone again?

Ok now I had some time :).

@kk1 your take about shin is good but it's a little long and I'll keep mine, because I wanted to keep it short. Still thanks for that take :D

@shins death
Maya and Mitsuomi pretend that Mitsuomi killed Shin or has driven him to death, but de facto it was suicide, also there's much uncertain about it. :x
But you are right mana didn't comit suicide, she died because of shins Tanshiko.

@ Mitsuomis Fighting style
I don't know it either so I call it Takayanagi Karate. Okay? :wink:

Where did you get stats for those characters from? I don't recall seeing them before.


Just took what you wrote about Maya and looked at the Manga how much smaller/taller the persons are.
With the weight I just guesed. but look at bunshichi or Mitsuomi. They don't look like light weights ;)

Full name: Isuzu Emi
Nickname: 'French Bread Head'

Fighting style: Throwing knives (special technique: Shadow Blade) plus karate

Special abilities: She has an (unnamed) special ability that allows her to shape fat, thus she can turn her actually quite huge body into a slim form, hiding numerous weapons, especially her preffered Anki-throwing knives and handcuffs (but also food and clothes) in the cracks between the molded fat. Because of that ability, she has to consume vast amounts of food to maintain a high percentage of body fat so she can fold it.

Positions: Isuzu was the Vice-President of the Enforcement Group until she got abased to some unknown position by Tawara Bunshichi; she also served as a bodyguard and spy for Kuzunoha Mana.

Character and traits: Emi is a highly devoted person who never, ever thinks of giving up, even if the odds of winning are bad - she always tries to satisfy her superiors and is badly in love with Takayanagi Mitsuomi since he saved her from Natsume Shin. Unfortunately for her, he does not reply to her affection at all, sometimes reducing her to a mere puppet that does what he wants her to do, while she is always trying to get his attention, without any success. Because of her love to Mitsuomi, she considers Natsume Maya as her rival, even if she cannot beat her in combat. She can get quite menacing when she gets pissed, especially for guys. Not to forget her strong sense of justice and order.

Family: father, mother and siblings are unknown; all that can be said is that the Isuzu-family served the Takayanagi-clan for ages

Age: 17

I'd appreciate it if you could add some information, as that's all I know about my favourite.

Started as one of Shin's body guards, and when was she degraded by Bunshichi? Her technique is called the Shadow blade(where a thrown blade is hidden from view behind another blade). And as for her fat she folds it inside her body along with whatever else she wants too. And that's not why she consumes all that food, she's just a glutton and that's why she is so fat, but even larger than her appetite is her vanity to the point where she can maintain her slim form even when badly wounded.
Nickname: French-bread head( because of her unique hairstyle).
ANd her name isn't Emily it's Emi, that's not a nickname.

Isuzu is still, as far as I can tell, the Vice President. Bunshichi is 'Special Advisor', Mitsuomi's buddy, and her senpai. So, yes, she takes orders from him occasionally.

Actually, he's the senpai of every student there, now that I think about it...

No the heigth and weight is correct. In Volume 10 Mataza tells us his heigth and weight ( and by the way the power of his punches ;) ).
Nagi doesn't posess the dragon fist. Not as far as it is known in TT.
Yes he can absorb other Dragons from other Talented Persons, you are right. I will correct this. :)

@ Bob no I won't add the "nip" technique :P
