|Super Release - Kōton | By being a master of Doton and using the secrets of Iwagakure no Sato, the user is able to use the next step of the earthen element. Kōton is the elemental release that is able to create and manipulate metals, changing the shape of the materials of that element. However, this doesn't let them manipulate metals with foreign chakra sources in them unless they use a higher level technique than the one being used on the object in question.ABILITIES|
|Samurai Style - YOSHIN | Yoshin Kenjutsu is a style of sword techniques that originate from Waterfall Country. The style's method of attack is considerably different from normal sword techniques, as each one is actually focused more on intelligent strikes to the body at critical places. Nerves, muscles, organs, even joints, are all targets of Yoshin Style. Because of this, practitioners typically use short blades such as wakizashi or kodachi, though katana users are not unheard of. The typical stance of the style is to hold your sword at chest level to make the typical jabbing motions of the style more accessible|
|Ranged Style - FLAWLESS AIM | The Flawless Aim is a style of weaponry skills long favored by specialists in ranged weapons. Users of this style focus on their eyes and hands, trying as best they can to achieve perfect synergy between their ability to analyze information and their ability to act on it.STYLES|
The Black Bear is a special broadsword to Kuma being named after himself. The sword very densely build, being heavier than any normal sword as it is specifically designed to have its shape and size altered through Kōton jutsu, creating any weapon of his choice according to whatever scenario he is in. The sword carried on Kuma 's back, opposite to his shoulder guard. The sword has a width of 10cm and length of 100cm.
|BATTLE BANEThin metal gauntlets-gloves worn by Kuma during missions and battle scenarios. These gauntlets reach up to his elbows and fit his arms perfectly. While these provide good defense, the sharp steel tip edges (1 inch long) around the gauntlet provide very good as offense during close combat scenarios.|
Custom-made armor made specifically for Kuma. These pieces of armor are relatively equally strong as ordinary shinobi armor. Designed with metal plates, the pieces armor are as follows: a cuirass on the front and back, two pauldrons, 2 bracers, 2 tassets, 2 hand guards, a hip belt and one shoulder and chest guard on his left shoulder only. These are only worn during missions and battle scenarios.
|HISTORYKuma never wanted to grow up as a ninja, but rather he was forced into it by his father and his three sisters. He was taught at home by his father before entering the academy at a young age of nine. Time passed quickly until he graduated into a Genin at the age of twelve and further into a Chuunin at seventeen after giving the test with the help of a spunky young girl around his age named Era, whom he ended up dating the next year. It was the first good thing ever to come out of being a ninja.|
It seemed as if his days were going all dandy until his father died of a sudden heart attack. His average, normal everyday life was starting to change drastically. Kuma, for the first time in his life, felt entirely helpless. Hours felt like days and one thing kept whispering inside of his head, "What’s going to happen now..."
Before his father died, he had whispered his last words to Kuma, "It’s you. You can lead this country. S-save... Save everyone..." These grave words stuck into Kuma's head for the rest of his life. He was conflicted because he never wanted to be a shinobi. Killing people was never justified. And there was so much work! Kuma never asked for it! His father wanted so much from him, never from his sisters. He lived under different expectations.
But now, he wanted him to lead the COUNTRY? Kuma wanted to run away from it all, but there were two things that stopped him. His girlfriend and his mother. Two women that always believed in Kuma from the day they met him.
His mother had caught him packing his things when he was ready to leave the village and told him that she respected his wishes and she understood the burden her husband had left on his only son, but she also told him that it was his own decision. She told him she loved him for his kind heart. Killing and hurting people was bad and shinobi do things like that and it indeed was a lit of work, but he could choose to save people instead. Save people. Stop the killing. Live in peace. Kuma really liked that. He had never considered perhaps by making something of himself, he could lead on to greater things and perhaps do something for humanity. He loved his village and if he could save it and bring it peace, then he would accept that responsibility.
Era met up with Kuma after his father's death to console him. She told him that his father believed in him and it was a wonderful thing and that she believed in him too. There really was something called peace in this world, perhaps Kuma could help Iwa in attaining it.
The week after, Kuma asked his sisters, who were special jounin of the village, to train Kuma and it was his greatest and most painful idea ever. Kuma had to sacrifice time and sleep training with his sisters, ruthlessly becoming injured after every class. However, the results of each training were phenomenal. Kuma had developed a passion for fighting and soon the Iwa council could see it too. He was called in to be promoted to Jounin rank at the age of nineteen.
Nowadays, his training only got more brutal. Kuma wanted to, if heaven will it, become the next Kage of Iwa and reign a new 'Era' to his country, as his girlfriend explained. His lovable personality and his improving fighting capability had brought the attention to the people of Iwagakure. He was gaining acknowledgement and renown. His goal seemed to coming closer and closer with every passing day.
