Yahiko Myōjin 明神 弥彦
: Catcher of a thousand blades
Yahiko's appearance boasts of the defiant demeanour within with his rebellious "cat-like" eyes and shock of spiky unkempt black hair. He usually wears a green haori patterned along the collar with several sets of short, twin parallel lines and a white undershirt, as well as a dark, or sometimes white, hakama and standard white tabi and zori. Yahiko also wears his sword tied across his back for easy access. He also wears dark blue wristbands. On the back of his haori's collar he has the kanji character aku (悪), which means "evil" in English. While this is an unorthodox look for a Shinobi, Yahiko prefers this attire as he can conceal his ninja tools inside his haori. Another reason for his lack of Shinobi attire is his belief that it will draw less attention to the fact that he is a shinobi and he would thus be less likely to be identified as an Uchiha.
He is 170cm tall and has black, neck length, spiky hair. Yahiko also has dark coloured eye that vary between hazel and dark brown. Yahiko is also a very lean person, although his muscles are well toned.
Even when he was the tender age of ten, Yahiko was a short-tempered, violent, bad-mannered and foul-mouthed young man. But, above all else, he is proud - proud of his Uchiha lineage. Taught cynicism and rebelliousness by the mean streets of Amegakure and schooled in thievery by the crime syndicates after his parents' deaths, Yahiko is nonetheless driven by his pride (since the discovery of his Uchiha lineage) and to avoid taking actions that would bring shame to his family name and reviles his days as a lowly pickpocket.
Angrily rejecting the pity and charity of others, Yahiko strives to fix his problems with his own hands and suffers greatly when it appears that his strength is not great enough to protect his ideals. As such, he quickly becomes infatuated with ninjutsu and kenjutsu, training diligently to become strong enough that he needn't rely on anyone else's power. As he grows stronger and stronger under the guidance of his Nindo, to re-establish the noble name of the Uchiha, Yahiko becomes driven to take arms for the protection of the precious people around him. He frequently puts his own life in jeopardy to protect others and prove to himself that he is becoming stronger. When his friends have been wronged, he rushes headlong into the fray to enact revenge and see justice done.
Despite his rude countenance and admittedly limited intelligence, Yahiko is also quite astute, being able to see inconsistencies and incongruities in the words and actions of other people and point them out bluntly. As time passed Yahiko managed to grow into a level-headed, contemplative, and caring young man, although his rude tendencies tend to emerge now and then.
Village of Birth:
Village of Alliance:
Uchiha Yahiko, as he was first called, was born in Konohagakure five years before Kurama was unleased on the village. His parents were low ranked officers in the Konoha Police force, a force composed entirely of Uchiha. However, Yahiko would never know his father, as he was killed during a tactical mission in another land, seven months before his birth. As a result, Yahiko was raised by his mother, who relocated the two to Amegakure in order to avoid the scrutiny brought upon the Uchiha after Kurama's attack on the Village. But she, too, died after contracting syphilis, leaving Yahiko an orphan at the age of two, not yet able to retain full memories of his lineage. Facing starvation on the streets, Yahiko was taken in by crime syndicate and schooled rather thoroughly in the ways of pick pocketing so as to repay his new caregivers, the Myōjin family (thus his new family name), for taking care of him. However, between the shame of becoming a common criminal and the abuse he suffered at the hands of low life thugs, Yahiko quickly soured on his life as a thief.
Ten years later, during a failed pick pocket attempt, Yahiko was nearly beaten to death where he was then saved by an Akatsuki member who noted his possession of a 1 Tomoe Sharingan, awakened by his brutal beating. The Akastuki member was named Akiza
who taught Yahiko about his clan, and the fate they suffered a few years prior. After this encounter Yahiko makes up his mind to sever ties with the Myōjin family and the crime syndicate they where associated with. However, Yahiko kept the Myōjin family name as he was aware of the unwanted attention being an Uchiha would bring him. Now bitter about the contradiction of being unable to defend himself whilst being one of a few survivors from such a proud clan, Yahiko decided to leave Amegakure to become a strong Shinobi worthy of the Uchiha name. During his travels he managed to receive training in Fire release, initially from Dante..
and then finished my a man dressed in a fine suit, McRazor
. Yahiko also received training in Lightning (later finished by the man in the suit) and Earth release from a man known as Darui..
Now at the age of 20, Yahiko, still holding the name Myōjin - returned to Amegakure now under the rule of -Minato-
where he has been receiving training from another Akatsuki member Gobi Gobletsson
in Genjutsu. Upon returning to Amegakure, Yahiko has made many friends, some who where only there for a short time and left shortly after like his old friend Mathias
, and those who seem more permanent such as ~Korra~ and blaise12 whom he met during a brief stint in the Hidden Shadow Village, Sindy and Howard. Deciding to now stay in Amegakure, Yahiko still searches for training to become as strong as he can so that he can return the good name of the Uchiha to the many
few left whom posses it. Since returning to Amegakure, Yahiko has begun training with [COLOR="RoyalBlue]Vision[/] teaching him wind, Kato. teaching him water and Kryptiic
who is finishing off Yahiko's earth training.
Yahiko carries with him a katana sized Bōken, which he wears on his back. He alternated this with a Sakabatō which he wears on his left hip, which since acquiring it, he favours more than the Bōken. His choice of weapons is a statement the he does not wish to kill his opponents, as he believes that would only worsen the name of the Uchiha and brand himself as a killer.
Yahiko also stores in the sleeves of his haori several kunai and shuriken in specially designed pouches for quick access. He also has a pouch on his back where he keeps more tools and weapons such as flash and smoke bombs, explosive tags, ninja wire and many scrolls.
