Kazuto is a sixteen year old boy, appearing young for his age with no trace of masculinity in his face. he has medium-length black hair, falling down to slightly below the height of his ears and has white featureless eyes like any other Hyuuga but wears black contacts to cover them up. He wears a long black trenchcoat which has a high collar and white linings on it with an Iwagakure head protector knitted onto the top of the left sleeve and wears a regular black shirt underneath along with a pair of leather gloves from which the fingertips are cut off, revealing part of his fingers. Kazuto also wears a pair of regular black pants and sturdy black boots which providing an excellent grip. Strapped across his back, Kazuto carries two scabbards, each containing a uniquely designed one-handed longsword.
Kazuto, who prefers to be called Kirito, is someone who isn't good with words and can be quite direct. This is due to him not having many friendships and closing others off, because of his love for becoming the strongest. As such he can come off as a rude person to others. He sometimes actually seems to enjoy angering people as well. However, Kirito is actually a kind person who just is misunderstood. Despite the general population opinion, he refuses to abandon another comrade in trouble. He also comforts others who are scared or down, giving them the strength to move forward. He claims to help some kunoichi across the Ninja World beacuse they remind him of his sister, who he feels guilty for believing he forced her into kendo. These kind acts have earn him respect and affection from many girls. Kirito though, is seen to be almost oblivious to such romantic affection. Kirito is also a very emotional person and lets his emotions control him from time to time. This worries his friends and allies as Kirito is someone who would let guilt ruin his life if not comforted. He also tries to hide his abilites not wanting uneeded attention. Playful at times, he is also shows a very mature and calm side on him, capable of intimidating his enemies and encouraging his allies. He though, will not think twice when having the opportunity to sexually harass his female friends.
Kazuto is exceptionally gifted at earth release, having it both as a specialty and first affinity he can perform earth jutsu with but one handseal. Kazuto managed to harness his earth chakra properly after training vigoursly in the mountains of Iwagakure and soon grew to be adept in the use of earth jutsu. He often practices his earth jutsu and with help has gained a fair understanding of the earth element.
➤ Gentle Fist:
Gentle Fist is a form of hand-to-hand combat used by members of the Hyuuga clan. It inflicts internal damage by attacking the body's Chakra Pathway System, subsequently injuring organs which are closely intertwined with the area of the network which has been struck. To do this, the user surgically injects a certain amount of their own chakra into the opponent's chakra pathway system, causing damage to surrounding organs due to their proximity to the chakra circulatory system. Even the slightest tap can cause severe internal damage, hence the name gentle fist.
Due to his heritage Kazuto possesses the Byakugan which grants him a 360 degrees field of vision with only a tiny blind spot at the back of his neck aswell as telescopic x-ray vision which allows him to see through any tangible or intangible objects, the biggest advantage given though is the ability to see chakra flow with great detail. Kazuto is able to activate and deactivate his Byakugan freely and without the use of handseals
(Dōjutsu: Byakugan) Eye Technique: The All Seeing White Eye
Chakra: 30 (-5 per turn to keep active)
One of the Three Great Dōjutsu (San Daidōjutsu), the Byakugan is the kekkei genkai of the Hyuga clan. Bearers of this Dõjutsu have almost featureless white eyes. When the Byakugan is activated, the user's pupils become more distinct, and the veins near their temples bulge as the blood flow to their eyes is increased. While having the Byakugan deactivated, Hyuga ninjas have a normal eyesight and no special addition to their vision. While low rank Hyugas will need to perform a sequence of hand seals ( Horse → Tiger with lifting just index fingers → Boar with nearly straightened fingers → Hare → Rat → Dog → Horse → Dog → Hare → Rat → Boar with nearly straightened fingers → Snake with the right index finger lifted straight up) to activate their Byakugan, Hyuga masters will be able to do so without the need for any hand seals and even have it active passively for long periods of time. Once activated, the user gains access to all of the abilities the Byakugan bestows upon them. While, like other Dojutsu, its main ability is to see chakra and the chakra flow in sentient beings, the Byakugan adds a complete new detail and dimension to that ability. The user can not only see chakra and the chakra flow, but also the circulatory system and even the 361 tenketsu. Added to this ability, once activated the Byakugan grants the user a near perfect field of vision 360º around himself (up to long-range if he's a master). This field of vision has only one blind spot, slightly above the 3rd thoracic vertebrae and facing backwards but enables the user to actually even see his own chakra circulatory system and chakra flow, which explains why all Hyuugas are so adept and masterfull of precise chakra control. The last ability the Byakugan has is the ability to zoom in and out, focusing on specific things, piercing beyond matter and energy alike, as well as chakra. This specific ability allows the user to see pass most barriers as well as physical matter (like rock walls, ground, etc) but also energy, being able to focus beyond chakra that might be in front of them or other energies. The zooming ability is enhanced as the user becomes more adept at using his eyes and can even reach distances above 20kms away. Some Hyugas have shown a great awareness regarding agressiveness as well as killing intent, detecting such intentions and emotions from others with more ease than most.
Note: Activation spends a move from the users own move count but once the user reaches Sannin Rank and has gained mastery over Gentle Fist for 1 month, he can activate it passively without spending a move. Because of its low chakra cost to maintain, the user can keep it active throughout the whole fight as long as he has chakra and stamina to do so.
Note: Genjutsu that requires Eye Contact when used against a Byakugan user requires direct eye contact between enemy pupil and user's pupil
Note: Must be activated to use Gentle Fist (Jyuken)
Note: Cannot be blinded by matter, chakra, light or energy
Note: Its tracking abilities are similar to that of a 3 Tomoe Sharingan
On the inside of his lower left arm Kazuto has a tattoo which resembles a Stingray and by swiping his blood across it Kazuto is able to summon a wide variety of Rays to aid him in battle aswell as use a variety of unique techniques. The Rays hail from the Lake of Antiquity, an epitome of beauty with nature untouched and unspoiled by the average human.
Kazuto is equipped with two swords at all times, the Elucidator and the Dark Repulser. The Elucidator is a black sword with white lining on the cutting edges. The hilt branches off in two directions, one connects with the blade while the other branches off downward and is connected by a sort of arc, which connects the primary blade with the branched off part of the hilt. The Elucidator is the heavier of the two swords and due to that it has slightly more force when swung than the Dark Repulser and is more suitable to counter other swords and such. The Dark Repulser is a sword with a green-ish tint across it. The hilt is longer than that of the Elucidator and it branches of into two linear directions in the shape of two cone-like triangles. The part inbetween the primary part of the blade and the hilt is thinner than the rest of the blade and two parts branch off, both parts are shaped like halved triangles. Along the blade it grows thinner but at the tip widens forming a sort of triangle shaped tip. The Dark Repulser is lighter than the Elucidator and slightly sharper, making it more suitable for quick and clean cuts. Both swords have blades of roughly ninety six centimeters long and are sheated in separate scabbards which Kazuto carries across his back.
Kirigaya Kazuto was born into a small family in Konohagakure’s Hyuuga clan. His family consisted only out of his parents and himself. However, barely a year after his birth he lost his parents in a fatal accident and left as an orphan he was adopted by his aunt and uncle, who themselves also had a daughter, Suguha who was a year younger than Kazuto, who always considered her as his little sister. His aunt and uncle both lived in Iwagakure, as his aunt who was his mother’s sister married an Iwarian shinobi. From a young age Kazuto and Suguha were encouraged to learn kendo and were taught under their grandfather’s tutelage at a local kendo dojo. Two years later Kazuto lost interest in kendo due to his aunt’s influence who herself was a jyuuken practicioner, which led to Kazuto dropping kendo and practicing jyuuken instead in which he displayed immense skill from a young age.
At the age of nine Kazuto enrolled into Iwagakure’s ninja academy and his talent earned him a reputation, however this reputation was frowned upon by his fellow students but Kazuto never really paid them any mind and only did what he had to do and graduated from the ninja academy after one year. Later that year Kazuto entered the chuunin exams, where he passed each test without too much effort, the exam is also the place where Kazuto first met Asuna whom he would soon grow close to and Cline, a swordsman who most of the time comes over like a hopeless romantic when in contact with women and Agil, a shinobi who although he possessed immense strength preferred to work in a safe area and make money through merchanting instead of actually carrying out missions unless they have a large reward.
It was three years later when Kazuto, who was a jounin by now was assigned to lead a team of three genin but that did not last long, after two months the team was on a mission when they were ambushed by a group of bandits, the enemy wasn’t too formidable for Kazuto but that was a different case for his team. Although hastily cutting through the enemies in order to save his team Kazuto was too late and watched his teammates as they died one by one. This brought a large feeling of guilt upon Kazuto as he believed his team died due to his carelessness and affected his general behaviour, trying to avoid having to go on missions with others as he feared that he would let his teammates die again.
Time passed, the now sixteen year old Kazuto has cleared countless of missions for Iwagakure, throughout the years Kazuto encountered several others such as Silicia, a little girl who was in trouble whom he helped out using the excuse that she reminded him of his little sister who he had been neglecting for so long. Kazuto now lives together with Asuna, whom he had met five years ago at the chuunin exams and grew close to, eventually marrying her. The two of them live in a small cabin in the outer skirts of Iwagakure.
Suddenly the village of Sunagakure declared war on Iwagakure. Kazuto was one of the Iwarians sent to fight on the front line, they spread out across the battlefield and Kazuto faced one of the enemy shinobi, that fight however didn't last long, Kazuto overwhelmed his opponent and took his unconcious body back to the village for interrogation. Shortly afterwards Sunagakure received backup from Kumogakure, the Iwarians at first seemed to be at a disadvantage as they were outnumbered but they held their ground and in the end the war was ended through a peaceful solution.
Later, Kazuto travelled to Amegakure in order to learn the arts of Rain release, however before he was allowed to learn it Kazuto had to proof his mastery over the wind and water elements in a test which he managed to pass.
