"Love is like a friendship caught on fire: In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning, and unquenchable."


Senju Shigure, age 14, and born in the cold months of Konohagakure on the twenty third day and third year before the formation of the Hidden Villages. He hails from the illustrious clan of Senju, a birth right he constantly strives to be worthy of, and one that has raised him with a measure of patience and expectations. Shigure, much like many Shionbi of his age, is an orphan, and while this tragedy has become a cliche within the Hidden Villages it makes the sting and pangs of loss no less depressing.

Shigure parents were killed after the Clan Wars (Shizu & Gureggu). He was roughly eleven at the time when his mother and father did not return from the dwindling skirmishes and tenuously held fronts, and sadly so close to the end of the tragic battles between the feuding families. Shigure surprisingly rose above such tragedy and became something akin to a visionary: constantly looking to the future in hopes of a better tomorrow. His emotional resilience is quite possibly a homage to his deceased mother and father, who he more than likely wishes to make proud even in the afterlife. He has two keepsakes of his father and mother that Shigure guards with a ferocious tenacity and that few even realize if not close to the teenager or clan (a fading, worn, and torn blue scarf and Shinobi armor).

The teenager for the next three years, preceding his family's death, took to his studies with a passion and fervor most students rarely show, becoming a lone wolf in a sense, and ward of Leaf. Shigure wasn’t just a skilled combatant but also a scholar. The teenager delved into history, literature, techniques, and the mysticism of the Shinobi to be a better man than his enemy, and quite possibly a strength Konoha could rely on one day.

During his years at the academy he showed great aptitude and skill with lighting based ninjutsus and a particular finesse with taijutsus that avoided strikes, redirected momentum, and focused on the use of tools to overpower his opponent. He graduated the school with high marks in ingenuity, subterfuge, intuitiveness, chakra molding, stamina, and ninjutsu. A prodigal of the Senju and a youth with potential like any other.

Shigure was however held back a year in the academy, the stint due in part to a great depression he fell into. Inuzuka Hige yet was there to help him through his turmoil and allowed the Senju to find his inner strength through what Shigure has dubbed affectionately as “tough love,” but in reality Hige merely threatened Shigure with physical violence to coach the teeanger out of his failings and inevitably getting the youth to accept his parent’s death. The two share a rapport based on mutual understanding and mutual benefit: teaching one another, helping each other overcome their weaknesses, and providing shoulders when needed.

The rest, as they say, is a tale in the making.


Shigure can be considered a bit of a recluse in a lot of ways, but that doesn’t make him anti-social or impersonal. In reality he is perhaps the friendliest, or at least could be considered one of the friendliest, Senjus in Konoha despite his rather calm or indifferent demeanor towards strangers; then again walking around the village with a shit-eating-grin or smile twenty-four-seven isn’t exactly normal. Shigure is approachable, finding an empathetic ear for those who wish to rant or just need an emotional release, but he prefers to know the individual before diving into the deep end of anyone’s drama. All in all the teenager is quiet in public, conservative, and not quick to speak amongst crowds.

Many of the Senju clan has labeled Shigure as a loner in polite conversation, but the truth of the matter is Shigure is just trying to live up to the expectations of his family, village, and namesake. Keeping to the clan’s reputation is not easy, and especially for one as young as Senju, so he is constantly second guessing himself on how to act or speak outside of hostilities. Yet those close to Shigure know him to be a paragon of the Leaf and one who emulates much of Harshiramako’s values while incorporating his own ideals: altruism, virtue ethics, and deontology.
