Name: Kawano, Haru
Weight: 140 pounds
Appearance: Haru is a beautiful, yet feminine looking boy. His features are striking, his piercing green eyes the most distinguished of these. He has long, blond hair that flows down to the center of his back. He has pale skin and looks soft and delicate yet when you look harder his eyes and face have a steel in them, hidden beneath the surface. His hair shines slightly in the direct sunlight looking almost white. While his body seems soft at first, when he flexes it reveals trained muscles that he has toned whenever possible.
He also has small, barely distinguishable silver scars on his wrists. He wears the ninja uniform of his village, unwilling to change into anything else once he acquired it. With his navy blue shirt, gloves and kunai holders along with his grey pants and under shirt, he is beginning to look like a ninja.
Level/Rank: Academy Student
Language: Common (Sati Accent) and Sati (Fluent)
Main/Favored Weapon: Twenty inch tanto. It has an eight inch handle and a twelve inch blade. After acquiring this weapon from the money his parents gave him he treasured the short weapon. It's sharpness amazed even him, when he used it to cut it flew right through the object, even with minimal force put behind the blade. It is made of steel and has no mystical properties but sometimes he wonders if its constant razor edge might be a sign of minor mystic influence. It is kept in a small black wooden scabbard on his right side.

- Good chakra control
- Above average reflexes
- Above average speed
- Great chakra capacity
- Blood burns occasionally
A burning in his veins can distract him in battle, causing him pain. He can attempt to overpower this with his pain tolerance, but it is still a detriment. It is triggered by strenuous activity.
- Gets disoriented occasionally
This can affect him in battle causing him to lose concentration and on rare occasions, faint. It is triggered by strenuous activity.
- Very bad strength.
- Bad endurance.
- Bad immune system (+ 2 poison post duration.)
- Good intelligence
- Very good pain tolerance.
- Great at genjutsu.
- Phobia of open spaces (agoraphobia)
He doesn't realize it but he has a great fear of large open spaces. Especially in high stress situations (such as on a mission). He feels that he can be attacked at any moment and can even use his weapons to attempt to defeat unseen enemies. He gains a cold sweat and is barely fit for combat. It can take him along time to traverse open spaces and impossible in direct combat. This can appear as a comical weakness at times but in most cases, it proves to be a high danger to himself.
His vanity doesn't affect him as it does usual people. He acknowledges his beauty and uses it as a tool. However if something wasn't to permanently disfigure his body he would go to extreme lengths to avoid it. This would make him susceptible to certain genjutsu and certain threats. Also his hair is a specific point of his vanity. Grabbing/cutting it would cause him to go into shock.
- Bad social skills (cold, stubborn, not a team player)
Raised as a diplomat, he possesses the skills to be socially acceptable. However he fails to use them on most occasions, as he hates being fake. Examples of when he would actually use his good social skills: when speaking to someone who he considers of higher rank (not necessarily a teacher), a client.
- Below average Ninjutsu knowledge (His mind doesn't understand Ninjutsu aside from the basic AS and Genin stuff, thus he is incapable of learning it.)

Bunshin no jutsu:
Kawarimi no jutsu:
Cue: Looking in the opponents eyes.
- Moving his hair in the sunlight (His hair shines and is pretty :D)
Background: Haru was raised in a world where appearances were everything, a world where deception ruled. His parents were diplomats and put on a show of their family being a perfect family. This has caused Haru to be colder and in more control of his emotions, sometimes too in control. He knows of many formalities, how to read people and keep up a good conversation while necessary. Despite his parents insistence on him following in their footsteps he wished to become a shinobi, wishing to go onto something beyond his current world.
He trained his mind, realizing it is his most powerful weapon. He even began to develop his own genjutsu, which were completed when his parents hired him a shinobi tutor, hoping to get him out of his "phase." Yet he also realized that his body was important and up until the first day as an academy student he has secretly attempted to train his body, pushing through his physical weaknesses.
As a child he was born with a disease where his blood would boil inside of him, hurting him from the inside. Bout’s of dizziness also plagued him, making his childhood dreams of becoming a ninja grow dimmer. In his training, he learned to push past the limits of his body, his endurance helping him push past his encumbering weaknesses. However, before this, he had great pain and discomfort from the boiling and disorientation. At one time, the pain had been so great that he cut open his wrists trying to pour the blood out. His parents found him quickly and helped patch the minor cuts, but their scars have stayed with him, a lifelong reminder.
He also doesn’t realize it, but after spending most of his life indoors, swept up in political intrigue, he has developed a fear of open spaces and feels as though he could be attacked at any moment.
He hopes to become great and well respected a powerful figure. Despite his low opinion of people, he wishes to find others who are different, and not just playing their own manipulative game.
Haru was finished. He was tired of the constant parade of faces, the endless deception and lies. He knew the life he was going to would be no better, in fact the very skills his parents had taught him could be the difference between life, and death. It would be different though; he felt it, right in his heart, pumping heated blood throughout his veins. There was no logic behind it but he was acting on instinct. In the core of his being, he knew he was meant to be a ninja.
As he looked back at his parents typical, stoic faces. He didn’t feel sadness, only a sense of freedom that he had never felt before. He turned away quickly and stopped the sneer that was beginning to grow upon his face. He wasn’t angry, he didn’t want his last few moments with his parents to be of disrespect, he wanted it neutral, an honourable departure. He allowed a small smile to grace his features, he was finished.
