Fujikujo Akane is currently a medic for Kirigakure, accepted into the village by Yondaime Mizukage Meruin himself after proving her worth to the village.
Akane was always tight-lipped about her past so few in Kirigakure know the truth. When asked where she is from she will usually respond, "I grew up in Fuuma Alley." Which isn't a lie. She did 'grow up' in Fuuma Alley.
|Akane, age 12|
Then she simply appeared one day in the fish market working with her herbs. This led to Okumo Sei investigating the new arrival. Akane's best smile couldn't convince the mute boy that she was no threat, though she wore no sign of affiliation and seemed to answer his questions honestly. Sei left her unmolested, though he had his suspicions.
Then she heard of a place with many herbs and plants growing in one place and made her way to the Hidden Oasis looking for herbs to collect. Through a past event she had lost most of her eye sight and thus was on a mission to use her knowledge of herbs to regain it. While she was there, then Kiri Jounin Okumo Meruin found her and inquired as to her visit. A deal was struck between the two. Due to how her eyes were damaged, the Okumo would give her back her eye sight in return for studying the damaged eyes. Akane agreed to Meruin's terms and was under his invitation from then on. Because of this deal, Meruin started out as a kind of Savior figure for her. She has since claimed to be his friend.
She spent the next few months with reduced vision as the studies were being done by helping where she could. Along the way she gathered much information about Kirigakure itself and the people who lived there. She learned new techniques and even went on missions with them.
During her time in Kiri she met and got to know Doihara Ishino, Seven Swordsman of the Mist. When Ishino returned from a visit to Kumogakure she noticed immediately that something was wrong with the man. It took some well placed actions to get the truth but from that point on, she and Ishino were very close.
Akane finally gave formal oaths to follow Kirigakure to Yondaime Mizukage Okumo Meruin and received her Hitai-ate which she now wears about her neck. She has since received the agreed upon surgery and can see perfectly well again.
Akane is usually the type to appear open and friendly even to those she does not know. But She is always calculating and aware of her surroundings. The medic in her would help an enemy while her 'darker' side would prefer to rip them apart with her blades. Now and then something triggers that darker personality which earned the name Kyoujin or "Assassin's Blade" in the past. This part of her is volatile and violent. Once her loyalty has been won it is hard to lose and she will protect those she cares about to her dying breath. She is also not above restraining people in order to heal them….
Deep red hair is held up in an elaborate weave, held together by six metallic hair sticks. Her brow holds the same color and can be sharp and focused, or relaxed and nonchalant. Akane's face curves smoothly in to the chin, her features soft and supple even with pouted red lips and a rounded nose. Her pale grey-hazel eyes however do hold a scar vertically along the left one, though she is not blinded in the wounded eye at all. Around her neck is her hitai-ate, the silver band marked with the symbol of a Kirigakure shinobi.
Her outfit consists of a black bustier that snugly fits her upper torso and exposes her midriff and the tattoos running along the right side of her midsection. A short jacket covers her arms up to her elbows, and then a pair of spiked metal braces lead from forearm to wrist in to black gloves. Her lower body is covered by tight black leather pants, a pair of spiked metal greaves, and black shinobi sandals. Just above her belt line on her right hip is a very distinct brand. Shaped like a clock set to a minute to midnight and darkened chemically.
Along her body are various weapons. Two customized kodachi are strapped to her back by a cris-crossing leather harness that hold over her collar bones. A belt holds several kunai, as well as two other belts that are along her lower thighs.
