- Experience Advantage: A player may start with more experience that can be applied to their total. This amount may never be enough to advance into the next class and can always fall short by 1 experience. Doing this will put the player in debt, thus all generated experience must go towards paying off that experience debt before it can be applied anywhere else.
This can also be done if a player only wishes to gain a little more experience at the start. If the player chooses to start with equal or less than 50% experience for their next class requirement only half of the generated experience will go towards this debt. This UA can only be taken at creation and may not be added later.
Borrowing 200 exp to be used towards her Intelligence stat for Sayuri to grant her increased intelligence due to her temple training.
- Skill Specialist: A player may choose to be able to learn techniques of a particular skill or element at one rank higher than what their class allows. As a result, technique performed outside of their class allowance has their cost increased by 50% on top of its original cost.
For example, performing a B-rank Genjutsu outside of my class will end up costing me 15 CP instead of 10 CP.
Due to her time spent training in temple Sayuri gains the Skill Specialist UA in regards to her Iryōjutsu.
Appearance: Standing at an even 4 feet tall, Sayuri’s human form has always been quite small for a ten year old. Yet, she doesn’t look emaciated, her body proportioned properly for her height to give her a quite healthy glow. In human form, which she has preferred since a young girl, she has lightly tan skin, big brown eyes brimming with an innocent curiosity within them, and long brown hair with shorter bangs in the front that end just below her eyebrows. With no mother to tend to her, the child’s straight hair, while being brushed, is left down and in no particular style, giving it a kind of plainness that nonetheless doesn’t diminish her adorableness.
Even though she has wandered away from the temple life she keeps many of the principles she was taught and many of the habits and ways of life, and this shows in her style of clothing. A white kimono and red hakama. White split toe socks and wooden gata help to complete this attire, leaving her looking like the miko she had been and perhaps still is on the inside.
History: Ito Sayuri has lived a very sheltered life. After an accident at the age of just three years old, young Sayuri found herself an orphan. The only survivor of a nasty gas-line explosion, the young child was found among the rubble of her apartment building home by civilian locals, and with no orphanages in the small village she was handed off to a man traveling to a temple in Kumogakure. The man spoke to the monks within the temple on her behalf and they allowed her residence there.
Ito Sayuri learned a very peaceful way of life from a young age. She was taught to work, and performed her chores around the temple well. Her meek and mild manner which seemed to come naturally to the child kept her out of the usual incidents of mischief that the others close to her age got involved with. As was the rule with anyone under the age of fifteen, Sayuri was confined to the temple grounds for her own safety, and never had the lust to wander out of them, nor reason to. For a very long time life at the temple kept her content and happy, having no family beyond the stone walls she felt no urge to explore or adventure. Her life was as sheltered as it was fragile, and she found herself keeping to the routine of those who were much older than her.
Due to her diligence in her prayers and rituals, she began training as a temple priestess. The year in seclusion was rather easy for the at the time eight year old Sayuri, and she used it to reflect on the teachings she had learned, the rituals and duties she was expected to perform, and to ultimate get closer to the deities she would be in service to. The year came and went with relative quickness for Sayuri, and when it was over she began what she expected to be an eleven year or more service to the temple as one of the priestess’s.
For the next two years Sayuri would train as a priestess, absorbing the knowledge passed down to her by the high priestess herself like a dry sponge thirsting for water. It made her yearn for this way of life forever, and gave her a willingness to dedicate her life to the service of the temple for the rest of her days. Yet, a raid upon the temple at the age of ten would send her fragile world crashing down around her. As smoke and shouts of alarm awoke her, Sayuri found her perfect world in utter chaos. The temple she had called home was engulfed in flames and chaos reigned on the grounds. People were running each and every way, and the sheer panic of the place could be tasted within the air.
By the end of the night, as dawn broke across the sky and spread it’s beautiful purples and blues and pinks, the temple lay in ruin and over half of those who resided within it had been slain. Sayuri, who had received a head injury trying to escape and who had been assumed dead, had regained consciousness to find her world torn apart. Days passed in the rubble, the talk of rebuilding the temple helping to lift the spirits of those who remained, but Sayuri found herself curious about the world beyond her home for the first time in her life. Those who had attacked and raided the temple had escaped, and it made Sayuri yearn for answers. She didn’t just want to know who had done it, but their motivation behind it. What sort of evil lurked unchecked within the world that would make men and women attack such a holy and sacred place? Sayuri found herself unable to rest until she found out the truth, and thus she set out on her own, entering into a far more dangerous life than the one she had been sheltered within for seven solid years, all the while unsure if she would ever return or if the fates would have other things in mind, especially as she crossed the border into Wind Country to begin her new life.
Personality: Sayuri is a very soft spoken individual, and incredibly shy. While she does enjoy meeting new people it can take her a while before she comes out of her shell and reveals anything beyond the shy girl who is afraid to make eye contact. While she hopes to one day become a full fledge priestess, or even a high priestess in the distant future, she struggles with being in the public eye. She prefers being out of the spotlight, not in it, and she knows it’ll be something she has to work hard to change if she wishes to fulfill her dreams and goals.
Unlike most children who get themselves into trouble, Sayuri is quite well behaved. She keeps to herself, mostly, and prefers to while away the time doing her chores or taking part in an activity that she enjoys, such as reading. She’s a lover of history, and enjoys reading everything she can about the various lands, cultures, and so forth that she can.
