A Reizei youngling born as the village was being formed. He was born to the clan head, the older brother to Reizei Ogosokamaru, the previous reikage to Kumogakure. A heavy weight is on Ryouji being both the second in line for the Reizei clan head and nephew to the third Raikage. He's accepted the expectations and does his best to meet them.
Ryouji has a complicated family. He knows of the dangers with his rogue ninja relatives, namely his great uncle and an uncle. But at the moment figures that all of that is in the past. He has a connection to it, but only in stories. They seem distance and not pertaining to him for the moment. Ryouji has had a normal childhood, as far as being the second born to the clan head of the Reizei and nephew to the third Drainage can be. He's had bodyguards accompany him to classes and trips to parks, or even when he's out to play. Ryouji doesn't mind them, they stay out of his way and he stays out of theirs provided he does what they say from time to time. He has an older brother named Tenzen that he looks up to, he's next in line to be clan head and as such has all the perks. But Ryouji has been said to have the most skill. For example, normally a Reizei receives a bokken training sword upon reaching academy age. But at age four he was able to life a bokken and swing one. A feat that so impressed his father, he was given a training sword at that young of age. It drew quite a bit of jealousy from both fellow students and fellow family members. If Ryouji noticed it, he didn't mind.
Ryouji is a practical and creative student. His mind is straight forward but flexable enough that he can think up creative ideas and thoughts to use. Exotic isn't something that works with Ryouji. Traditional is what he likes. He's grown up with the Reizei, a mostly traditional clan in thoughts and actions. He likes kimonos for example where kids these days choose other fashions. He is observant and aware. Never one to distract himself from the here and now, daydreams are not for him. While he does have thoughts of 'what if', he does not let it cloud his thoughts most of the time. He's still a kid after all, what kid doesn't look up at the clouds from time to time and think one is shaped like a rabbit?
Ryouji has some down sides though, he's not adventurous at all. He won't go looking for trouble, his clan has shown him enough times that trouble will most likely find him or his clan. He's second in line as the reizei clan, putting himself in unnessary danger isn't something he's fond of. But, he will have a duty to protect his clan and village. So sooner or later he'll have to put himself in danger. He accepts that, it's part of the job. He'd never break the law, it's the law. It's been made by well intentioned councel members or Kage. If the law is unjust, there are ways to change them. Despite his traditional background, he is empathetic and kind to those he's around. He's always been handled by either a teacher or a bodyguard, so to have an actual friend is a good thing. He can't make friends very well because he hasn't had much contact with others his own age. So he shows himself as outgoing and someone who wants to keep friends. But, with the lack of his own control bleeds out into friendships. He has some control issues because there are aspects of his life he can't control. Something he can, he will control. He's been taught to be dutiful and selfless. He has the equivalent of the 'will of fire' for the kumogakure. The 'mountain of rock' maybe? He cares a great deal for his village and would die to protect it. Provided he can protect it. For now, that's where the adults come in.
This boy is in his mid teens and tall for his age topping at 6 ft tall, 72 in or 182cm, however you want to measure it, Ryouji has grown quite a bit in the last year. He's built with lean muscle and there's not an ounce of fat on his well muscled 156 lbs or 70 kg frame. This ninja from Kumogakure has a shaggy head of blue whitish hair that has turned more blue as he gets older. It waves and flows down just past the ears with bangs that partially obscure his eyes. His face is rounded and unadorned from blemishes or scars. Most would say his looks are quite handsome and has the look of royalty with always a smile on his face, usually. His skin is lightly tanned but looks like it was once pale. He has a very light complexion but his time in the sun has darkened it somewhat over the years. It looks like his efforts to get a tan is finally paying off.
He's currently dressed in the gear he uses for missions. Most notable is the chuunin body armor colored in white and grays, there are several extra scroll holders along the upper shoulder strap along with a larger pouch on the other side along the ribs. Under the armor is a light blue hoodie shirt to allow freedom of movement. Atop the open shoulder of the hoodie is a stylized white cloud. The unofficial symbol of the cloud ninja. Stitched into the left shoulder of the hoodie is the kanji for king, also used as the emblem of the Reizei clan. The kanji is three lines, bisected with a line in the middle. The top is heaven, the middle is man, and the bottom is earth. The vertical line shows the unity of the Reizei between heaven, man, and earth and their supposed right to govern and rule over the village. Attached to his shins are white and black detailed armored pieces, familiar to kumogakure ninja. A pair of well fitting brown hakama with white blood lines running up the sides and a pair of hard soled toeless sandals for traversing rocky mountain trails round out the clothing choices
Even at a glance, this guy is a walking sword arsenal. Running under the armor is a strap to hold a holster on his back with a set of six swords, all sticking out from behind his left shoulder. They are arranged in three sets of two, Each are identical, a long straight 26" blade with no tsuba and only a simple dark blue shark skin wrapped tsuka. He has also has one sword that is attached to his hip. The second sword on his right is called 'Kaminari Katta', the Lightning Cutter. It sits in a nearly all white saya save for a neon blue stripe running down the middle of both saya and tsuka. The kumogakure emblem is patterned on the tsuka but the most striking feature is the lighting bolt styled hamon running down the middle of the blade. A 'hitai-ate' with the cloud ninja emblem is attached to one of the equipment straps showing his allegiance to kumogakure.
|Ogosokamaru||Uncle||The 2nd Raikage of Kumogakure and Ryouji's favorite uncle. You would think that now he's retired, he would have more time for his favorite nephew, but ooooh nooooo!|
|Reizei Yuuma||Father||Past Head of the Reizei clan and father to Ryouji. He has passed from this world and leadership of the clan has gone on to my brother, Tenzen.|
|Maki Naoko||Mother||Wife to Yuuma and mother to Ryouji. Best mom ever.|
|Tenzen||Brother||He's my older brother and the current clan leader. When we were young, he was always jealous of me for some reason and called me 'the privileged one'. But now that he's back, things have changed. We've both matured and have a much better relationship. He's tried to train me but there's not much he could have taught me. That and he's always busy running the clan. He's still got an odd way of looking at women so I think I'll take his advice the same way I do with Hiei-sensei, with a bucket of salt.|
|Nariko||Friend||She's a recently graduated chuunin and has taught me a few things but mostly there for support. She says she can fix my problems with genjutsu.|
|Hebisuuhai Misa||Friend||She's was a fellow student but I never knew her too well then. After graduation she was assigned to the team. She's ok.|
|Hiei||Sensei||The 3rd Raikage! My sensei and someone I've learned a great deal from. I love his training style, carrying rocks. So simple yet effective. After graduation he's become my team leader. I look up to him a lot. He's like how my big brother should be. Don't tell Tenzen, he might hate that since the two of them are so close. I'm so proud of my sensei and not only have I been taught by the second Raikage, I've been now taught by the third Raikage too! Is this a sign? I'm 'ok' with Hiei-sensei becoming the Raikage, but to not have a Raizei in the seat is a little strange. So from here on out, I've decided that I'm going to be the next Raikage! To not have a Raizei in the seat just does not sit well with me.|
|Michiko||ex-Girlfriend||Tokubetsu, who's head ninja and part of team hurricane and is the assistant to Hiei-sensei. Which means she's always busy with the Raikage. Michiko, Michiko, Michiko…um…she's a skilled ninja who can use ninjutsu the same as I can taijutsu. She's as strong as Sado and I, as pretty as mother is, and more than a friend to me. I care about her a great deal. We used to date, but things got complicated and we figured it was time to break off the relationship. Still, she's a good friend and someone I can always have tea with.|
|Sado||Rival||Since the first time I met Sado at the academy, we've been butting heads. I think it's because we both want to beat the other and out do them. I hope it won't go too far though. I do like our rivalry, but I don't want to lose Sado as a friend. So far I beat him for the top spot in team thunderstrike, but he's not too far off. So that means I have to keep training every day!|
|Kynshin||Acquaintance||I just met him. Hiei-sensei says he's one of his students, but I can't remember seeing him around the village. Maybe he's new? Guess I shouldn't judge right away. Even if he's a grown up. Sensei said he's going to be part of Thunderstrike, replacing Junnpei. I hope he'll do his best.|
|Naruko||Friend||Naruko is an uzumaki and even though she's older than me, I consider her a friend. She's a chuunin, I think it's been a while since I've seen her. I haven't seen her in action besides that one time helping the hawks. But she handled herself ok.|
|Rise||Friend - the oldest Genin I know||Ha! Don't ever let her hear that! She might try to deck me, again. She's a nice person, but she's older than me and a bit unpredictable.|
|Hebisuuhai Misa||Friend||She's was a fellow student but I never knew her too well then. After graduation she was assigned to the team. She's ok.|
|Daisuke||Sensei?||The Nidaime Hokage from Konohagakure. Hiei-sensei and the rest of team Hiei with Nariko-senpai went to celebrate Daisuke being picked to become the second Hokage. He even let me drink a bit of sake with the rest of the Chuunin and Jounin at the hot springs. I don't know, does that mean he's guilty of delinquency of a minor? Will have to look that one up. He's the one who taught me lightning and wind jutsu. I had both chakra's mixed together for my swift release and he taught me to separate them. When he wasn't womanizing and drinking that is.|
|Inuzuka Hige||Friend||He's an inuzuka that likes to hang out in kumogakure. I think he was adopted so he does not have that much of a connection to their clan. We started sparring and it developed into a friendship. He's not that bad of a guy.|
|Doihara Ishino||Visitor to the village||One of the seven swordsmen of the mist. I met him while doing a rotation as one of the gate guards. He was coming to the village to look for someone. I asked for his autograph.|

Michiko and I finally got together for a spar after it felt like eternity. I didn't feel I had to hold back. Could it be it was because I knew the relationship changed? It was a nice feeling not having to hold back as much and surprisingly I did really good against her. I hardly got hurt at all and I even got a few good shots in. But it ended up as a tie, so I can't say if she really tried at 100%. Still, got a future dinner with her, so hey, win for me. Now why do I feel funny about that?
Awesome spar with Hayase today. She's my age but only a chuunin BUT, she held her own against me. Kiri really produces good ninja. She knows kung-fu and can unlock her inner gates. I might want to learn how to do that. Though I suspect it's similar to my kekkei genkai. Not much of ninjutsu that I saw, so I didn't want to pull out any of mine. Still good to keep a few tricks up my sleeve if I face her again. I signed a form from her recommending her to stay longer in the village. If only to face her again in a spar.
Hey Journal-kun, I went out to eat at Tenkyu. As usual, good food. The place was packed with villargers so the owners started doubling up tables. I got to sit with one of the chuunin kiri nin who are visiting the village. Her name is Maki Hayase. She was a nice person. Nothing too impressive but she did like the idea that I was a swordsman. She had one on so guess she's a fan. It's not like I'm interested though, she's kiri. Remember, the last time I was interested in one of the, I nearly got killed. She might be a good friend though. Best thing though, she invited me for a training spar tomorrow, can't wait for that to happen!
I know they are our friends and allies. But it's always odd seeing a Kiri ANBU in the village. I don't know why one of those guys is in the village. But I saw one sparring with one of our genin today. The kid wasn't doing so bad either. But I could see the ANBU wasn't trying very hard to knock the kid down. The blades the ANBU was using were turned away so there's no way they could cut the kid. Very weird.
Hello Journal-Kun. How long has it been, 2 years? I found you under my old sword polishing gear and a pile of clothes. I guess I just lapsed in writing in you. I can't really say sorry at that, you're just a dusty old book. So I set the old one up on a shelf and got a new journal to write what's going on with my life. I wouldn't say you're better, but your leather bound pages is nice. So, a little bit about myself. I'm a Jounin from Kumogakure. My name is Reizei Ryouji and the second boy to the Reizei Clan's leadership. That title is getting a little old, I'm fifteen now and I'm still saying that. How about I'm next in line. That sounds better.
C'mon and light the fuse, he's a rocket and he's ready to go
'Cause now the coutdown has started and he's ready to blow
He's got the dope sounds pumpin in a stereo (-eo!)
Kick'n ass fast… puttin' on a show
Go on and get yourself together, there's no time to rest
And if you put the time in he'll put you to the test
He's like the runnin' man, in his world more is less
And if you wanna test him best bring your best
Don't make me spell it out, bring your best!
Ha, that was good. I'm still in training to be an enka rap artist. I've got a long ways to go before I'm the best. But that was one of my better ones. I'll put in a line every once in a while in you. Hope you don't mind. My life outside of enka rap has been a good one. I've dated, I've loved, I've fought, I've gained power few other Reizei have. I'm happy, if a little lonely. But tis something I must manage. For now though, peace out!

Missed Christmas since I'm in the leaf village for supplies. Hope Michiko isn't too mad about that, but it was a needed mission, so I'm sure she understands. The moment I came into the village today, I went to find Hige and to see this team of his. When I got there, I watched him training two of his genin and to be honest, I'm not sure if what he was doing was the best choice for them. It was a bit rough. But I have no genin to train, so who am I to judge? On top of that, I really don't know the two, so whatever. I brought presents though! Gourmet dog biscuits for Konsho, and a beautiful kunai from hiro weapons for Hige. I think he's having problems with his genin though. They were just finishing up a training practice and after a bit of yelling the girl storms off. I hope everything is alright. I know I shouldn't get involved though, it's not my team. But, after their training session, Zori came over and started pacing around me. I REALLY hated that. He wanted a fight, so sure, I gave him a fight. But, I think we decided it would be best to accept the spar but only to do it later. I was tired with just getting into the leave village anyway, I'll be refreshed in the morning.
So the next day I went back to the training grounds so I can help out Hige with his two annoying genin. Expecting two, I saw one there. That one wanted to fight, but then ran off. He's a very odd one.
Much to my annoyance, I took out genin Hanami, Tatsuo, Red, and Hisomu out on a D rank escort mission. A Mr Yuu needed a team of ninja to escort him and his goods out of the land of lightning. At the end of the journey though, we were ambushed by Thunder Famoso. But him and his ninja mariachi were quickly taken care of. I guess we won't be seeing that Famoso guy anymore. We took his body back to Kumogakure as proof.
With the Recluse defeated, the village can start going back to normal. That means I can finally go out on a date with Michiko again. It was great, we went to one of the valleys around Kumogakure and picked berries. After that we did that, I treated Michiko to a ride using my blur technique. She liked it, but probably not her best mode of transportation. I've never really liked her earth style for travel, so we're even. So we went back to Kumogakure and my house to make a few tarts. We had a good time.

Yoichi, I got her autograph! So my goal to get all the seven swordsmen of the mist's autograph is starting. It took me getting my butt handed to my by this Kiji person. But it was totally worth it. It took Yoichi using one of Kiba's bigger lightning ninjutsu's to take us down, so I take great comfort in that. Losing and walking away AND learning something…I call that a minor victory.
I'm not wrong in doing this. So I broke up with Michiko. Call me crazy but I've got my reasons. Not the best timing though. In the middle of the steel soul tourney isn't the craziest of good ideas, or so I've been told, but I need to focus on this above all else. Michiko-chan, I can't really get a good reading off of her one way or another. She seemed upset, but maybe I'm too physicked for the tournament to worry about it? I don't know, I'll sort it all out afterwards.
So I was walking through Kirigakure between matches when this kid stole an egg from an exotic pets vendor in the marketplace. I couldn't let a thief get away with it so I caught the kid. But since this wasn't Kumogakure I didn't have the authority to arrest him like I would back in my village. So I made a bet with him, I'd fight him in a match at the arena. If he won, he'd take a sword I had, white lotus. One of my better looking swords. If I won, I'd take the egg he just stole. The poor kid agreed and I kicked his butt leaving me the owner of one stolen egg. To my surprise, the thing was still alive and it looked like one of the giant hawk eggs I've heard about. I've gotta keep this warm until I can return to the hawks in the land of lighting. I'm sure they'll know who it belongs to once I take it back.
Nasty fight, Shriyou didn't let up for a moment. She was freaky, no matter how hard or how many hits I gave her, she just healed up the damage. It was amazing, she moved just like a ghost. I couldn't figure it out, but I lasted for a long time with her. I didn't give up until I passed out from the effort. I'm quite proud of this. In case you're wondering, Nikki-kun, I did not give up the egg. Michiko-chan is watching it. She's a really good egg sitter.
Stupid Hiei, I hate it when he talks some sense into me. Once I thought I had it all figured out. I did NOT want to date Michiko anymore. I had my reasons. I thought she was going to be too busy. I was going to be too busy. I had my training. Many excuses. But Hiei set me straight. My brother might be the clan leader, but that does not make him the smartest jounin around. His idea of women isn't the best around, I'm sorry to have followed it. I made up with Michiko and we're back together. I'm actually happier for it too, and I think she is too.
I can't believe this, so Michiko and I have been captured by the hawks when we tried to return the egg. They really seem ungrateful, but I suppose we were uninvited into their territory and we had a newly hatching chick with us. It is ok though, because we convinced them we mean no harm and I even got to help feed the chick. I think we've got an attachment, a bonding they call it. Whatever it is, she sure is cute all fluffy and hungry for goat all the time. She's a pig!

Good news today. I finally got out to pay respects to father in the dojo and guess who stopped by to talk. Tenzen! He said he was going to train me and be around for me more, though honestly, I can take care of myself. We talked about my life and what I've been doing lately. He didn't sound too happy I decided to sign up for the steel soul tournament. But we went to soak in his person hot spring, being the clan leader always has its advantages. He even gave me some sake and talked about women. Don't tell mom and Michiko! Well, good night nikki-kun!
I wish it didn't happen, but it was only a formality. I finally talked to Michiko-chan about our relationship. It was a touchy subject with me. We're both so busy doing our respective jobs, it feels like we've drifted apart so far that I don't know if we we'll ever come together again. I needed time away from Michiko, that was the meat of it. I don't hate her for working so much, and myself for that matter, yet. But I know if we kept up appearances and not dealing with the situation, one of us would grow resentful of the other and feelings would be hurt more than they are now. I've officially drank sake after breaking up with Michiko, Nikki-kun. I'll probably be regretting it later. But right now I'm feeling better about the whole thing so I thought, what the hell, write it down. Maybe after a long while, we'll get back together. She asked if she should wait for our relationship to come together again, but I don't know at that point we'll have a chance. I'll just take the memories we had of the last few months and hold onto them. The kissing…it was wet. Well, good night nikki-kun!
That was crazy! My first match in the Steel Soul Tourney. I was fighting a genin from Sunagakure named Arika. She was really good, and a tailed beast user to boot. But in the end, I was lucky she didn't have much experience using the power of her bijuu, because I won by the proctor's decision. I could have gone on longer, but I think the judge thought I won by pure skill. Heh, yeah right. I made it out of that by the skin of my teeth. Let's hope all my matches go this way.
Could someone tell me what just happened? My match with Arika was fine, but this Naoya just handed me by ass. He had such a killer spirit, more than an Okumo should have…I guess. Actually, he's the first time I faced someone from his clan. He didn't use spiders as much as I thought he would. Odd. But later on, I was told that he was the boyfriend of a girl I talked to for a little bit a few days ago. I really should have watched what I was doing or talking too. These kiri nin are dangerous. I'm sorry I broke up with Michiko to be honest. But it was my decision to make. Best to deal with it and move on with the tournament. So one win and one loss, time to move on with the next bracket.

Hello Nikki-kun! So I might have dug a bit too much in this latest spar match with Michiko-chan. To make the match interesting I suggested that we wager for the win. If I win, she gives me a kiss. If she won, she suggested that I talk to my father about my relationship with Michiko-chan. I thought it was an easy win with a kiss on the line. It didn't go like I planned. Her metal jutsu is a very tricky thing. In the end, I now have to talk to my father about Michiko-chan and I. I think it would have liked the kiss. Though after that conversation, I might still get that kiss? Let's hope so!
I stood up to father and his antiquated views on relationships. I told him during breakfast today that I was going to date who I wanted to and no one would stop me. Pre-arranged marriages are no longer needed in this age of hidden villages. Father then said he agreed. It was…easy? Too easy I think. Considering how stubborn he was about the topic the last few months. I wonder. Lately I haven't been sleeping well, strange bad dreams about a girl. Talk to you later Nikki-kun!
Yama, the old word for Mountain. A fitting team name I think. I quit team Thunderstrike, sorry Hiei-sensei. As of this morning, I'm officially part of team Yama. As a chuunin, I have the right to form a team of my own making and lead it. Now, to find three genin that would want to learn under my 'expert' teachings. I'll teach them everything, from enka rapping to swordplay. It'll be awesome, you bet it!
I apologize I have not thought of writing to you. My missions has kept me busy, I would still not be writing to you if I had my way. I am getting tired of writing in a journal. I've been too busy to write my thoughts on paper, but as I've been told many times before, it could help me organize my thoughts. When I returned from my recent mission, I learned the news that my aunt Yuzuna and father were killed. They were killed in separate incidents, both on missions for the village and both dying for what they believe. Uncle Ogo has, well…I'm not sure how to read his feelings. Sad I suppose, as we all are. It must be even worse for him, hearing his wife has died and then his brother all in a matter of a few days. The clan is in chaos but there is already talk of allowing Tenzen, my brother, to step into Yuuma's shoes and take leadership of the clan. Once he comes back from his long term mission, there is no one else who is more worthy. Which begs the question, is he ready? I'm sure he is, he's been groomed since he was born to take the position when Yuuma steps down. *a few tears stain this page* I just didn't think this is how it would happen. Hiei-sensei said he did all he could to save Yuuma but somehow, I don't know if I believe him. I have mixed feelings about it but I do not dare question the Raikage. These feels I have, are they hate for him? I do not know and I don't think I want to find out for fear they are. Why couldn't he save my father? Why wouldn't… *the last words are there, but faint as if scribbled out* Where was he? The details of the mission are vague and I have yet to talk to Hiei-sensei about them. I've locked myself in my room and I don't think I want to come out. I've been crying since last night when I heard the news. I haven't eaten much since then either, not that I'm hungry anyway. I haven't even picked up a sword for over a day. Father, I already miss you. Services are soon though, I've got to go to those. No one would forgive me if I wallow in my sorrow and miss it. Father, I already miss you.

Hello Nikki-kun! So I got a special mission today. We went to a local village and faced off against the Silence. I personally took down one using my onikuma jutsu. It was the first time I used it in combat and I was impressed. The clean up was easy and not many of us were too injured. I'll see you later Nikki-kun!

Hello Nikki-kun! DO I got good news for you today! This morning I mastered my blur forms! I was able to reach the speed that Ogosokamaru-san showed I should hit if I wanted to master my swift release. I am really proud of that, but I still have lots of work ahead of me. Ogosokamaru said now I need to learn control in addition to speed. My wind style and lightning release is good he said, but isn't as fast as simply dodging attacks with my kekkei genkai. I will have to double my efforts to fine tune my swift release so I can use it anytime and not just when I take my blur forms. So I celebrated my final swift release form with Hiei-sensei by shaing some sake with him. By sharing, I mean he drank the sake with my bodyguard, Akira-san. I had some green tea. I am not old enough to drink! Even though Hiei-sensei was in his Raikage office, he couldn't refuse a drink from the Reizei's family private stash of sake. Complements of my father. I only hope he does not get into trouble with his wife when he goes home.
Hello Nikki-kun! Well, I had my weekly spar with Michiko-chan. With more control in my swift release I almost beat her! I landed several good hits, something I haven't done before. But she still got the better of me, again. Maybe next time, less ninjutsu and more taijutsu. She always got hit by my battoujutsu so I should use that more. On a personal note, she said she is going with Hiei-sensei to sunagakure village for a few weeks. I wish I could go with her, I will miss her terribly. But I am more worried about something else. I confessed to her that I like her a while back, but she hasn't done anything. No hand holding, no touching, nothing. I gave her a kiss on the cheek once, but all she did was blush and said 'see you later'. I am beginning to think she only likes me as a friend and nothing more. I mean, I am OK with that, I think. I've decided I won't show any of my feelings or flirt with her anymore, like my brother said. I'll play 'hard to get' then see what happens. Better idea, I might go see if Naruko-chan is doing anything tonight.

Hello Nikki-kun. This is going to be a hard journal entry. It's taken me a few days to think about what I was going to say. So here it goes. A few days ago I met Michiko-chan out by the falls. We've been meeting like this at out of the way spots a few times now. Having lunches or late night dinners, or just strolling through the village. So finally I told her I like her more than just a friend. It was really hard and I couldn't find the words to say, even though I'm usually good at that! But best thing about it, she said she likes me the same way. Only, I think she has issues that is keeping her from wanting to share those feelings. I'm ok with that though, I'd rather us be friends than nothing at all. There's always tomorrow. Anyway, I'll see you later Nikki-kun!
Hello Nikki-kun! So today I got picked to lead a two man squad to a place called Kumonoue. They handle all the messenger hawks between several different countries. I can see why it's on the tallest peak in the land of lightning then. I'll have to tell you more about it when Naruko and I get back from the mission. I admit, I haven't been around Naruko much, but I know she's skilled. So I have confidence we'll get through this mission without a scratch. I'll see you later Nikki-kun!
Hello Nikki-kun! Hiei-sensei, the Raikage himself, invited Kynshin and I to train with him. We went to the Raikage's personal training grounds behind the administration building and did some training. I showed him my elemental jutsu and what I'd like to do it. Someday I'll create that high level lightning jutsu I want. When I could do that, I think I'll better understand why I couldn't do elemental jutsu until the Senju unlocked it within me. I'll see you later Nikki-kun!
Hello Nikki-kun! This is it Nikki-kun, Hiei-sensei put me in charge of a mission. For reals this time! We went to attack a faceless camp. We were there for intel gathering only and Hige, Michiko, and Hisomu did a great job. Hisomu and Hige distracted the archers in the compound while Michiko and I snuck around back and mapped out the place. I've got to hand in this report now so I'll see you later Nikki-kun!

Hello Nikki-kun! I went to see the Yotsuki clan and their newest member, Shun-kun. Lady Sachiko is a friend so I got in no problem. My clan wanted to make an official gesture anyway, so they sent me to see the baby and deliver a gift. It was a drum rattle and a sling to carry Shun-kun. Lady Sachiko loved both gifts and Shun-kun loved the rattle. Don't tell Sado-kun, but I got to hold the baby and I think I liked it. Anyway, I'll see you later Nikki-kun!

Hello Nikki-kun! Sorry I haven't written anything in a while. Hiei-sensei and Nariko-senpai took the team to konohagakure! Seeing the leaf village was something incredible. The buildings, people, and even environment are totally different. It's nice being someplace that does not rain most of the spring. We met the new Hokage, a man named Senju Daisuke. He's a big man with bright red hair but nice all the same. We were invited after a few days to soak in their natural hot springs in the village. I think Hiro-san got a little too much sake to drink. The Hokage even invited me to drink some! But I don't think I like sake, it's too strong or I'm still too young to appreciate it. So far I met all the clans but the akimichi. Etsu from the bug clan got Nariko and I roped into a mission to rid a few houses of rats, it wasn't what I'd call fun, but a mission is a mission. At least I got to help out. Since coming to the leaf I've got a few surprises in store for Hiei-sensei next time we spar. I can't wait to try them out. Just between you and me Nikki-kun, I hope we go home soon. I miss Kumogakure and starting to feel homesick. I'll see you later Nikki-kun!
Hello Nikki-kun! Today, Hiei-sensei, Hiro-san, Michiko-chan, Nariko-senpai, and aunt Yuzuna hunted down some pirates and protected an ocean side village. It was very dangerous, but I got to use all my skills and took out a ton of pirates. I feel a little sad about it though, they were hardly hard to kill and I wish there was another way to deal with them other than using my sword. The sword is important, don't get me wrong and I LIKE it, but to kill at random and sometimes I feel it's unnecessary. Anyway, I'll see you later Nikki-kun!

Hello Nikki-kun! This will be my first ever journal entry to you. I got you as an assignment from the academy. They said all ninja write their thoughts and feelings in someone like you to help with missions. So that's what I'll do from now on. Anything important that happens, I'll tell you about it. Right now though, I have to go to kenjutsu practice. I'll see you later Nikki-kun!
Hello Nikki-kun! Well, today is the day. I've passed add my tests save one. I've got to fight against one of my sensei. I'm sure I'll pick Hiei-sensei. But I want to keep an eye on Misa-kun. I'm sure she'll be ok. But we'll see. I'll see you later Nikki-kun!
Hello Nikki-kun! Today Amani, Rise, Hiei, Hiro, and I were assigned to stop a prison riot. Not bad for the first mission after graduation. I'll see you later Nikki-kun!
Hello Nikki-kun! This will be our first mission with a completed team Hiei. Misa, Michiko, and I were picked to do a currier run to the prison I had to quell the riot at a month ago. It was a good mission, I even got to see the odd bandit that has been turning up lately. I think he's working for the ox king. I'll see you later Nikki-kun!
