History: Akane was born and raised in a blooming village in the fire country. Her parents were the local lords, originating from Konoha, who due to their ninja techniques and wealth had managed to acquire their position in the village’s ranking.
Raised in a prosperous family, Akane was treated like a princess; she had anything she could ever ask for, material wise. Her schedule was filled with caligraphy and etiquete classes but on her sparse free time she played with her only brother, Ichirou.
As the years passed, however, she and Ichirou grew distant. They argued and fought a lot and eventually stopped talking, their bond was broken. Without her only friend to warm her heart, Akane grew cold, her heart turned to stone as she set a new goal. Her new aspiration was to succeed her father’s position; she aimed for power and respect. There was nothing she wouldn’t do to achieve her goal, in contrast to her brother who didn’t seem to care for such matters. Instead Ichirou prefered to hang out around the village, flirting with mere peasants that Akane so much despised and considered lowlives.
For the next few years Akane locked herself in her room studying to succeed her father, meanwhile and without noticing she had separated herself from the rest of the family. When her father fell ill and, not so sadly for Akane, passed away her victory didn’t last for long as he chose to appoint her younger and pathetic brother in his place. From that moment on hate filled Akane’s heart. Cheated as she felt she run away from home, planning to take back what she deserved, what she was better qualified for.
She travelled a lot in search of someone to take care of her situation, a killer to help her steal back what had been placed in the wrong hands. For years she wandered around the ninja world looking for someone trustworthy to execute her deed. Revenge was her only motivation.
One day in a bar she found the man she was looking for, not only the perfect assassin but a pretty handsome lover as well. She had completely fallen for that guy, Haru, and in her drunkenness she trusted her secret to him. He immediately displayed interest and offered to dispose of her younger brother for her. Soon he had presented his team of fellow killers and laid down the assassination plan. Akane approved without hesitation, so they set off the next day, a day earlier than Akane herself to execute it. The plan involved Akane leaving later in order to arrive after the massacre so as to not raise any suspicion. No one could charge her for anything if she wasn’t in the murder scene.
More the fool she; Haru betrayed his promise. When she arrived at her family home she found Haru had indeed murdered her brother, but he had also declared himself the local lord, a place that should have been left open for her. Not only was that detrimental to her ambition, but it could also prove dangerous. What if Haru decided to put the blame on her? Then her only goal would come to ruin, forever. So Akane played her trump card. She pretended to not mind and married the traitorous ninja assassin. A few weeks after their wedding, the cunning lady spilled poison into her husband’s cup, granting him a well deserved, slow and excruciating death.
After enjoying watching Haru die, Akane packed and waved her hated hometown farewell by setting it on fire. The fools that despised her since birth, the weaklings that lived of her father’s kindness, all them pathetic rats would now perish in the fires of justice. The beautiful flower of fiery death rose to the starry sky, as Akane turned her back to her village for the last time. She was setting out to execute her greatest wish, to attain tremendous power and be in need of nobody. She would learn the arts of ninjutsu.
To become a ninja and be trained in the art of fighting she must move into town, but not any town, a town with a sky as dark as her heart, bleeding endless tears. A city as cold as her smile, grey as her pale skin. The place she would fit in perfectly, Amegakure.
Now the time has come to train and grow, the time for the shadow of fear to paralyse the masses. A new villain is born, so beware.
