: Scorpio is a relatively tall, lean-built, dark-skinned man with short hair that is red on one side and white on the other. Scorpio dislikes wearing a shirt but at most times, is seen wearing a pea coat much like the picture towards the right. He has a red sheet-like material around his waist that is kept up by his large belt that has the Scorpio symbol on it and wears black shorts. Scorpio wears a non-chakra, light metallic scorpion tail/stinger that is attached to his back via a strap. It holds sand much like Gaara's sand gourd.
: Scorpio is a kind and respectful man. He has a strange manner of speaking, he says "We are" in the beginning of each sentence and refers to his sand as "our sand". He is a trustworthy man. Scorpio has a habit of folding his middle and ring fingers back while keeping his index and little fingers extended, mimicking the pincer claws of a scorpion.

Scorpio was born into this world with the ability and power to manipulate sand at his will, with the use of techniques like Gaara. To assure that he has sand with him at all times, Scorpio has attached a light metallic scorpion tail to his back via a strap to his waist. The tail contains sand much like Gaara's sand gourd and theres an opening near the edge of the tail, where the stinger of a scorpion is supposed to be and it is through that hole, sand can emerge out of it. Scorpio has worn the tail for so long that its weight doesn't affect Scorpio's speed in battle.
Thanks to Scorpio's affinity to Wind, he is capable of performing Wind Techniques with a single handseal, conditionally, if handseals were needed initially. Scorpio's weapon, Wind Manifestation, has a wind affinity as well and is strapped to Scorpio's side at all tine.
into an era of blood and cruelty, fame and power, prodigies and unnatural beings, Scorpio was required to go through hardships, not meant to be experienced by an innocent boy. At birth, Scorpio was immediately removed from his family and placed into the Sungakure foster home for children. Scorpio was always told by the caretakers how great his parents were, how they sacrificed themselves to protect the Land of Wind, more importantly, Scorpio. All Scorpio had to remember of his parents, was the key left for Scorpio by his parents. The key also signified who Scorpio was, as depicted by the symbol located by the handle of the key.
As much as Scorpio seemed like the average boy, he was not. He had the ability to manipulate sand at his will, and he found this out when he was just seven years old and was at the playground. He had knocked some bigger boys, who were bullying Scorpio, down. Nobody seem to have thought poor, innocent, little Scorpio was the one who controlled the sand but rather, a red-headed boy, who was also at the scene. Scorpio felt the urge to tell the people it wasn't the redhead's fault and it was his but nobody bothered to listen. They just began picking on the redhead. It seems that there was more to it as to why they picked on the redhead.*
Eventually, Scorpio learnt that the redhead he had once met at the playground was the bearer of the One Tailed Beast, Shukaku of the Sand. Besides that, it was a wonderful and faithful coincidence that Gaara, the redhead boy, was there. For if Scorpio was caught manipulating sand, he would have been taken into captivity and tested with as it was not normal for anyone, to be able to control sand.Scorpio was smart as to keep a low profile on his sand ability and instead, used regular ninjutsu like the rest of the kids when he entered Sunagakure's Ninja Academy.*
During Scorpio's free time, he would often hide himself from the eyes of the villages in alleys and deserted areas to train controlling sand. Though, on this particular day, when Scorpio was just fourteen and in search of an area to train, he had stumbled upon this seemingly abandoned house by the near-borders of Sungakure. On the assumption the house was empty and a great spot for training, Scorpio entered and the next moment, blasted out of the house by a large amount of sand. Scorpio was slightly in pain but could tell the force applied to the sand blast wasn't deadly. This kind of gave Scorpio the idea that someone in the house meant no harm and just want nobody entering the house. Even knowing this piece of information, Scorpio was even determined then, to enter the house. He rushed full speed ahead into the open doors of the house and fought his way in by using his own ability to manipulate sand to hold down the sand that attempted to perform the same attack as before.
In the midst of excitedly being able to utilize sand in a practical battle, Scorpio was unaware that a slightly muscular figure had made its swift approach towards Scorpio and grabbed him by the neck, easily lifting Scorpio into the air.
'What on earth do you think you are doing, boy? The near-borders of Sunagakure is not a place for you to be in!'
*Scorpio struggles to breathe and says*
'I am sorry, sir! I was just curious, please loosen your grip. I am dying here! X_X'
*Scorpio drops on the floor and tilts his head up to the man*
Not much of the conversation was remembered after that but one thing for sure was, that man took Scorpio under his wing and trained him in the Arts of Sand. There was not much to it besides tactics, strategy and skill. Along the way, Scorpio got to know that man a little bit more. His name was Toku. It wasn't long before Toku decided to return to his own village, Iwagakure. He had only just visited Sunagakure for the sand and used the abandoned house as a temporary home. What Scorpio had thought to be the parting of sensei and student, turned out to be more than that. It was the beginning, of Scorpio's adventure.
-Time Skip To The Present-
Nine years have passed. Where was Scorpio? Oh, he lived peacefully in the village of Konoha, where the villagers accepted Scorpio for who he was. Scorpio enjoyed his life as it was, mastering elements and new fields of combat. Developing and passing on self-made techniques and being the founder of his own elements.
