Aokiyo has medium length. messy styled hair. Having been born with a pigment deficiency his hair is white as snow.
Despite being born with his pigment deficiency, Aokiyo's eyes are a brilliant icy blue.
Standing five foot six inches tall.
Aokiyo is lithe and skinny weighing approximately one hundred and fifteen pounds. Despite this, he is still defined muscularly.
Aokiyo's style is rather varied depending on the time of the year. However he does have a basic outfit he tends to wear. It consists of a short sleeve black and white striped V-neck shirt, light blue jeans with a black leather belt and black boots. In winter he likes to wear a blue and white scarf, a long white coat with blue fur lining and gloves. In summer he usually wears his normal outfit but substituting the jeans for shorts and boots with sandals.
Aokiyo has several scars along his body varying in size and shape. He has his right ear pierced with three small rings. Most times he wears his black invisible frame glasses.
<CENTER><b>TRAITS</b></CENTER><br>Aokiyo is fiercely loyal to his family and friends, willing to risk mind, body and soul if necessary to protect them. He is an aggressive fighter and will tend to be reckless, within reason, if it wins him a fight. Aokiyo has a problem with his anger, resulting in more conflicts then needed. He is trying to learn to quell it but it taking a while. Despite his flaws, Aokiyo is a compassionate and intelligent young man. He can be academic when he wishes but tends to focus on his swordsmanship more than anything. Aokiyo is homosexual, never finding girl or women attractive in any regard. He has a respect for female warriors, treating them equal to males without a second thought. He does not shy away from challenges that he deems worthy, including anything from fights, flirting or food.
Having started training at a young age, using repetition to increase his bodies muscle memory, Aokiyo is very flexible and well toned. Said training has also allowed him to use his weapon with exceptional ease despite its size and weight. He is confident and loyal to a fault.
Aokiyo has a weakness for three things: Food, handsome guys and fighting. These three things drive him to the brink in pretty much every instance of his life. Despite his training he does have a very notable weakness. A few years back, after a boating accident Aokiyo sustained a bad impact to the sternum causing him to permanently damage his diaphragm. After extensive activity it becomes harder to breath. Unrelated to that though is his fear of open water.
Aokiyo has a love for blacksmithing, taking an interest long ago going so far as to stalk the local swordsmith, eventually convincing him to let Aokiyo become his apprentice of sorts. He loves weapons, swords in particular. Food is also part of Aokiyo's general loves.
Aokiyo hates rejection. Whether by guys or requesting a duel, it upsets him greatly. He is not fond of marksman, as he sees using a long ranged weapon as cheap. That said he does respect the skill needed to use one.
Being the first born son between members of the Inukai and Chiba families, Aokiyo has taken it upon himself to become a master samurai to impress and surpass both family lineages. He wants nothing more than to become noted for his own achievements and not because of his families names.
Wakizashi and a standard Tachi
. Both Wakizashi and Tachi
have no tsuba but do have a slot where one can be affixed easily. The Tachi is his main weapon, while the wakizashi is a back up. Predominately Aokiyo uses his Tachi in combat, using his wakizashi either to parry as a parrying knife of in situations where space is limited.
Kori no Tamashi, an heirloom sword passed down through the Ashikaga Family line since the 13th shogun. The sword however, has throughout history been used in countless battles and has fallen into disrepair. The only piece to have survived the ages is the tsuba. Forged to resemble a wolf howling in the snow at a moon shrouded in cloud cover, it is a fine work of art. Despite the sword itself being lost to the ravages of time the tsuba remains and with it lives on the weapons power as a relic. Currently Aoikyo has used his smithing skills to affix the tsuba to his Tachi, allowing him to channel the relics abilities through the sword.
The 13th Ashikaga Shogun. He was also known as the sword shogun for his physical stamina and impressive katana skills. Many samurai, even Oda Nobunaga, respected him. Also known as Yoshifushi or Yoshifuji, he was the 13th shogun of the Ashikaga shogunate who reigned from 1546 to 1565 during the late Muromachi period.
<br>ACTIVATED ABILITY 1: -Kaze no Taiho-
Gathering a small amount of energy and channeling it through his sword, Aokiyo can launch a single mass of dence ice. It is fired from the sword with a swing, resembling a very small wolf in charge bearing fangs. Upon impact the ice explodes into ice shards causing cuts and weak frostbite. (One turn cooldown.)
<br>ACTIVATED ABILITY 2: -Fubuki no Toboe-
Channeling energy through his sword, Aokiyo summons up to three medium sized ice wolves. They bear fangs and howl as another swing of his sword directs the wolves to attack, they charge down their prey latching on with a bite and exploding in a mass of sharp piercing ice shards causing deeper cuts and harsher frostbite. (Three turn cooldown.)
<br>LOCKED ACTIVATED ABILITY 3: -Fuyu no Ikari Umekigoe-
Sheathing his sword and channeling a massive amount of energy through his weapon, Aokiyo draws his sword unleashing a massive maelstrom of swirling biting winds and dense heavy snow within a 30ft radius of himself for three turns. While this ability is active each swing of his sword releases a thin blade of ice that freezes the site of impact. Additionally being caught within the field of his blizzard, the enemies visibility is reduced unless their eyes are shielded. The winds themselves bite and burn with intense cold. (Five turns cooldown.)
Cuts made with his sword cause frostbite and a numbess at the site of impact.
<br>LOCKED PASSIVE 2:
Increases the speed at which Aokiyo is able to maneuver while the sword is drawn, giving him faster reaction and speed in combat.
<br>LOCKED AWAKENED MODE COLOR:
Snow white with an icy blue, outer misty aura.
<br> AWAKENED ATTACK: -Toketsu-fu no Kao-
Aokiyo's strongest and most dangerous attack. Gathering all of his power at once and focusing it through his sheathed sword he draws it running a hand along the back of the blade. Ice begins to form along arms and chest creating a series of ice plates resembling armor. Frost veins form on his face as his relics power flows through his body. At his back three long tendrils of ice resembling tail form. His weapon itself becomes encased in the same ice on his body. Cuts made with the sword swell and burst, freezing almost instantly and forming large icicles at the cut. Notably his other skills are available in this state. His armor and boosts only work for about two turns max before he passes out.</div>
<br>• Inukai Naoto (Father)
<br>• Inukai Ashikaga Matsuko (Mother) - Divorced
<br>• Inukai Chotsu (Brother)
<br>• Ashikaga Rikujo (Grandfather)
Aokiyo was born in Kosaku in the Rikuchu Province of Japan to Inukai Kaoto and Inukai Matsuko. He is the first born son of a marriage between the Inukai and Ashiga Clans. His father Kaoto, belonged to a line of politicians and elected officials. His mother, Matsuko, was the second daughter of the current Ashikaga Clan Elder, Ashikaga Rikujo. It was set up years ago that the two clans would marry as a form of political alliance. From the pair came two sons, Aokiyo and Chotsu, who was born three years after Aokiyo.
Matsuko saw potential in Aokiyo at a young age and decided, against her husbands wishes, to teach him the way of the sword. For years she drilled him on his stance, physical and mental training and form. When he turned nine, Matsuko gave he son a very special set of gifts. A small key emblazoned with the Ashikaga Clan crest and a small chest brandishing the same seal. She told him he could not open it until his thirteenth birthday.
The family as a whole was seen as happy by outsiders. However, Naoto and Matsuko fought constantly. Matsuko coming from a long line of swordsman was a practiced fighter and skilled samurai herself. Naoto was from a distant samurai line but never took up the sword, instead focusing on his academic abilities. The two were not meant to be and after ten years together they agreed to a divorce. Chotsu and Aokiyo were given the choice of parents but were told that they would be living separately. Knowing that Chotsu was more attached to their mother Aokiyo chose to live with his father.
As instructed, when Aokiyo turned thirteen years of age he opened his mothers gift to him. The chest itself contained only a single item; his relic Kori no Tamashi
. Holding it in hand he could feel the power it radiated and after taking a year to learn smithing he decided to affix it to his sword. His father seeing his son grow to be a strong and independent warrior decided to send him to Edo Bugei. Silently he watched his son off giving only a sad nod and hug before watching his first born leave for his new life.
It took a while for Aokiyo to get used to the new environment. Seeing other relic users in training only fired him up to be the best he could. Classes were fun and training made him feel like he was improving as a swordsman. Only time would tell however if he could master his relic and be a success.</div>
