War was a dreadful situation for many people to endure. Civilians often lost family and homes due to casualties while military personnel had the threat of losing their own life in combat. This was a ripe opportunity for Kiku to test out her skills as a ninja. Young and fairly inexperienced, this Genin had a hankering for combat. Kirigakure's lax empire allowed her to slip out and make her way to the Heavenly Emporium, some sort of sanctuary city floating just above the battlegrounds. She prepared up there while getting a taste for the bounties of war. Seeing wounded ninja, craftsmen from around the world, and people prepare in this safe space was the kind of naughty, blood-pumping thrill she sought.
Kiku wore her casual outfit consisting of a set of black sandals to be accompanied with long black stockings which ended just above her knees. These paired well with her short black shorts, barely providing full leg coverage combined. Around her waist she wore a utility belt which carried her gear. Two dark blue holsters were strung up by the belt, one on her left side and the other on her right, while her tool pouch was stored around her back side which was a common configuration by most ninja. On her torso she wore a uniform black button up top which was designed with white trimming and brass buttons. Kiku oddly left her centermost part of her shirt unbuttoned exposing a rather glorious display of cleavage. Her outfit was finished off by a white haori she wore as an overcoat.
Kiku's said was fair which was common for ninja living in Kirigakure. The mist and typical overcast conditions blocked out a lot of natural sunlight making most residents light skinned. This strangely went well with her natural light green eyes and long, pink hair that fades into a neon green color at the halfway point, which she wears in three thick braids with five shorter clumps hanging over her face as bangs. Wearing her forehead protector around her neck like a collar she had the Kirigakure emblem facing outwards to verify her identity as a Kirigakure ninja.
Cruising through the crazy bizarre city she kept her eyes peeled taking in the sights. Combat was prohibited, though she didn't trust ceasefire agreements one bit. She figured both sides were already planning a counterattack when their opponent lets their guard down. Typical. At least for now she can experience this odd marvel and at least say she's been there before it crashes and burns.
Her mindless wandering led her to a park area where came across a squatter hogging a bench all to herself. Certainly words would be a waste just by judging the stranger's appearance. She was dirty and tattered, being a stray alley cat and all. Relocating her may be considered an act of aggression, something she didn't want to risk while being surrounded by multiple soldiers still believing this cease fire agreement. If she were to get busted, running would do her no good. This led her with one other option. Ikomiki would experience a sudden overcast as shadow engulfed her vision, whether her eyes were opened or closed. This would be finalized by a sudden crushing force. Plush, but heavy. Kiku remained seated on the stray's face until they got the message to move, all the while she pretended to act like she was simply not there.
