How committed are you to Joining the Clan: Without a doubt, I can assure you my utmost commitment to the Clan, and respecting all of the clan members, as well as being patient with everything. As of the current moment, I am on a search to find my two 'permanent' bios, or so to say, which I will very likely keep for the rest of my RPing career, and never change them. I'm glad to say that I've already found one - My trademark Baldy aka Ikkaku Madarame. As seen from my avatar and signature, I do have some sort of weird fetish for baldness. Then again, I took an interest in the Kaguya KG, as I did with the Kiyoshi Clan. As such, I took the test and passed, and now, I have one bio, which I would most likely keep for the rest of my RPing career. Nevertheless, I am constantly on the search for a Second Bio. Now, why you may ask? Why do I want to find bios I truly like and admire? Well, first of all, I prefer a versatile arsenal, not one expansive and powerful, but instead, something that allows room for innovation and creativity. I already have a close-combat KG, that allows me to maneuver in close-range, also allowing enough room for me to expand on certain concepts and making my battling style more flexible, especially since my bones can both be a lethal and potent attacking weapon, and a strong and flexible defense mechanism. That being said, I am looking for a more Ninjutsu-based Clan, that would also allow the same room for creativity. When I thought about it, I can only say, the Kiyoshi Clan popped into my mind. The Kiyoshi Clan left a deep image in my mind, somehow. Ever since I first joined NB, I looked through the RP stuff, and read through most of the stuff like CEs, and CCs. I immediately took notice of the Kiyoshi Clan - That was one of the things that made me want to join the RP. The explanation about manipulation of natural 'pure' energy, really made it as if there was already a connection with me and the Kiyoshi. I was deeply infatuated with the clan, and really wanted to be a part of this big and great family. However, when I joined, I saw that the Kiyoshi Clan were not accepting more members, and the social forums somehow went down. As such, I was disappointed. To be honest, I nearly forgot all about it, the desire and passion faded. Until recently, I forgot all about the clan. Throughout the months of me RPing though, I've seen many members, that I respect, RP skillfully with the Kiyoshi abilities. One of them in particular, actually left quite a deep impression on me. The variety of ways one could use just one of those techniques. Helping you fly, restricting the opponent's movements, its just amazing. The many things that one can do using the "pure" chakra of the Kiyoshi Clan. It just re-sparked that interest for the Kiyoshi Clan in my heart.
If given the chance, I would most definitely cherish it. I'm more than willing to drop my second bio for a Kiyoshi, and if I am accepted, I would waste no time doing so. There is no doubt that I would show respect towards all clan members, and be patient with my training. I am willing to give it my best shot, my best 110% efforts, at all times. Thereby, I hope to bring upon you that I will be very committed to the clan and do my best not to fail you. I am very impressed by the Clan's Capabilities, not because of its power, but because of its versatility and the many ways i can use it. It allows creativity and innovation, the things I like to do in battle, which would bring fighting to a whole new level, instead of its usual throwing of nukes. That being said, I will, if accepted, treat everybody with due respect, and everybody as a family. I will do my best to sustain unity among members, and obey all rules. ^^
Why do you deserve to be Chosen: To be honest, I cannot say that I deserve to be chosen. I can only say that I deserve to have a chance to get chosen, as whether or not I get in, is up to you, and my application. First and foremost, I would like to mention your criteria's. Loyalty, remaining in the clan, learning enthusiastically, understanding to the best of my ability, patience in all actions, and skill. I assure you that I will stay committed to each and every one of these conditions. I will be loyal to the clan, and never leave, until the day when it would finally be time for me to move on to RL. I will assure you that I will learn to the best of my ability, have a good attitude, and never take things for granted. Everything taught to me, I will do my best to stay active in training, and responsible. I will seek knowledge, and not power, learning all that is possible. To the best of my ability, I will try to understand everything taught to me. Every single piece of wisdom revealed to me, I will be sure to incorporate them into my knowledge, and broaden my mind. When things too complex are too hard for me to comprehend, I will not hesitate to ask - My thirst for knowledge will not deter me, and I will do my utmost best to learn correctly, instead of understanding nothing. I will be patient, for i know that the journey for a Kiyoshi to complete his training and fully become mature within the Clan, is a long one indeed. It will take months, possibly years, requiring much patience. That, however, I do not mind. I am a very patient person - At least, that is what I think I am, and people seem to agree with me. I am laid-back yes, but I'd rather say that I am patient, and I don't like to hurry. I'd rather digest and swallow knowledge, fully comprehend it, before moving on. That said, I still plan to be active, and not take too long. However, I will try to understand everything and never complain about the time period. I strongly believe in the fact its not about how many techniques one has, but how one uses what he has. I will do my best to fully understand everything, so that I can do things in a variety of methods, with full understanding. I will adhere to all conditions of the Kiyoshi Clan and show respect.
That being said, I have no means of verifying all that i just said. It is merely just talk, talk, and talk. On NB, i have no special status which sets me above the rest. I am merely nothing, but a member; Of course, unless you count that golden glowing name, which signifies I'm a premium user -_- I am merely a normal commoner, nothing above the rest. As said, I believe i would be a valuable asset to the clan, providing complete commitment to the clan. I will try my best not to disappoint you, and I can only promise, for I cannot do anything to confirm that I am not lying. I believe that being patient, is something that I have done. From all my countless experiences with anything regarding training, I do not recall a single time in which I actually rushed to reply, just because I wanted to. I can assure you, I never did, and most of my friends know that I never ever reply to training just for the sake of doing so. I usually take a while to reply to training, not because I'm lazy, but because I'm slowly digesting the information. Every time I learn a new technique, I would brainstorm advantages, disadvantages, possible ways I can use it, and how to defend against it. I will try my best to innovate things with that single technique, and come up with a few creative variations as to how to perform them. Once done, only then would I reply. It could be called this little habit of mine, I'm not satisfied until I know everything about something. I do not like to leave loopholes, or blanks that I have no idea about. I will do everything I can to just fill it up, before moving on. Whilst this slows down my learning, I am patient, and eventually, I know that I would understand everything perfectly, and altogether, I am still the better man compared to those that rush through stuff, without really realizing how things are done. It is the process that matters, and not the product. Many simply rush their training, and I for one do not believe in doing so. I believe that me understanding things completely would supplement my knowledge and accentuate my wisdom. Personally, I feel this has payed off. Although yes, I have not completed my training after several months, but I can proudly say, yes, I understand everything I have learnt so far. Whereas there are people who don't know how to do things despite learning them, but that is because they rushed through without comprehending that thing. Among most people of my generation, there are mainly two groups of people within the RP. One are those who rush through training, the other, the minority, those who are patient and truly try to understand everything. Instead of constantly rushing to master your elements, being in the Kiyoshi Clan would be entirely different. One would have to be patient, and I am more than willing to wait. Patience is a virtue, something I truly practice. I practice what I preach, unlike the empty vessels who simply say things. Actions speak louder than words, however, I believe that if given the chance, I can truly showcase whatever I said, and not disappoint nor fail you.
Another thing is, I'm not fond of constantly making and changing bios. I prefer to stay with two permanent bios that will not change, such that I only have to update them. That has always been my opinion. I believe that we should stay with our bios, and not constantly switch bios just to try out different abilities. I'm a very down-to-earth guy, I like to be simple. I just want to find my two dream bios that I will always keep, and updating them for the history. Commitment, I assure you, is something I will definitely give.
Are you willing to keep a Kiyoshi Clan Bio (which cannot have a KG) for a minimum of 1 year: Well, of course! If allowed the chance, why else would I forsake it? It is a great opportunity that only comes knocking at my door rarely, I do not even have to think twice, and I would definitely keep this bio for at least a year, easily until the end of my RP career. If allowed the opportunity, this will take the place of one of my main bios ^_^
In the most philosophical way you can, explain any one of the five elements: I will be explaining Water, my favorite element.
Water is the element of yielding. Giving way under pressure, water is but a supple element. It continuously and naturally flows back and forth, yielding at the riverbanks beyond its reach. Balance, control, life. Those in which represent water at its best. There is a fine balance between great and horrible with water. Too much and you crush your body or drown; Too little and you die from dehydration. A necessity in life, it is yet to be controlled and maintained. Its all about control and balance, precision and accuracy. Its all about that gentle area in the middle where true balance and power can be wielded and found. Its about softness, precision and control, rather than power or strength. The incessant flow of water, is something none can stop. It is essential in life, but without control and balance of the quantity, one would fail. Water breathes life into us, it IS life. Too much of a good thing, can however, be a bad thing.
What is your preferred form of combat: Being a Kaguya, I'd say I'm fairly adept at Close-Range, and I have a definite advantage in close-combat. I am resourceful and creative, in my opinion, and I usually take advantage of scientific facts to counter techniques, for example using bone's characteristic of conducting lightning to divert lightning techniques away from me. The bones can also be thrown in a trajectory that it would be conducted by lightning and continue to hit the opponent. However, despite having all those close-range abilities, I usually stay at mid-range, moving around a lot. There are times I go close-up, but there are also times where I move backwards to long-range. I'm basically a very mobile fighter, and I believe that staying at one spot leaves you vulnerable. I try to incorporate creativity to defending, such that i not only counter, I counter such that the opponent is constantly on the run. I think ahead, 1 or 2 moves, and tend to visualize and predict what the opponent will do, preparing a counter to his counter, to unfold an even more precarious situation. Also, my relative attacking pattern would be to somehow distract/trap the opponent, before using a fast technique to finish him off. Mostly, I do not aim for power, but merely speed in following up with attacks.
How long have you been a member of NarutoBase: I've been a member since 08-28-2011, thereby making it nearly 8 months.
With that, I conclude my Kiyoshi Clan Application, hoping that you will accept me into it ^^ Best of luck to everyone else who applied
