After the Fourth Great Shinobi World War ended, the world was experiencing a time of peace. The villages for once were able to live in relative harmony with one another as they rebuilt, and for once, all seemed to be well. The kage were able to live peaceful lives and soon began retiring, passing on the baton to the next generations. That is until an unknown virus infects the northern coast. The first to fall is the once powerful Raikage, Ay. While many thought this virus was a simple mutation of what may have well been the flu, no one would ever think of the destruction it would cause. Especially when it infected a certain Uzumaki Naruto.
With his death came the malice; with the malice came the destruction; with the destruction came the shinobi' revolt; and with the revolt came the sacrifices. The Bijuu became filled with malice that they sought to destroy the world. Shinobi sought a way to fight them and once again capture each of the Bijuu. Time passed, and a plan was devised. The Jinchuuriki would be sacrificed for the greater good of the world, and with the deaths of nine individuals, an uneasy peace began.
As time continued, the villages began to truly restructure. In a peace that would last 80 years after the downfall of the Bijuu, the world would see the creation of a great many things. Technology was beginning to take root and before long the blossoms that grew from the tree of the advanced mind would bear fruit. A many great things came to be. A railroad between the vast many nations. Mechanical limbs to replace lost ones. Radios that could reach between villages. Everything seemed to be becoming less reliant on the shinobi. Only the need for them never truly vanished. As with the growth of time, also continued the growth of malice.

Tera stands at five foot eleven and weighs about two hundred pounds even. She is a muscular woman with a highly toned body. Her silvery-white hair hangs a little past her shoulders, and is usually tied into a braid so it's out of her way. Her eyes are a piercing yellow, the shade and expression not unlike that of the eyes of a great horned owl.
Tera wraps her neck, arms, chest, and abdomen in bandages to cover horrific scarring that she doesn't want anyone to see. Usually, her clothing consists of a lightweight dress that falls barely to her thighs, colored sea blue and black; it should barely count as clothing, really. At each hip is a sheathe for one of her daggers. Over this, she wears a black cloak with a hood that buttons shut. Most often, she carries two large backs, one on her back and one over her shoulder.
Tera is an unusual person. She is quiet, soft-spoken, and respectful at heart, although she has difficulty presenting her true personality to others. Due to her upbringing, she doesn't know much about kindness, and at best could be considered entirely neutral in her behavior towards people. As such, she doesn't have much of a bedside manner at all. In fact, she could be considered downright standoffish most of the time.
She is a very dedicated, hardworking woman that isn't afraid to get her hands dirty if it'll get the job done. Tera pours what remains of her passion into her plants, spending most of her time tending to them. She treats them like they're her children, even talking to them and singing as she works. Her greenhouse is the only place she feels at home; it calms her.
Tera is very paranoid and distrustful of people due to abuse in the past. She doesn't trust anyone, and although she doesn't like to kill, is prepared to do so at any time. She'll never be caught without some sort of weapon on her person. She presents a cold, calculating persona to those she does not know well (so basically everybody). Her own vulnerability terrifies her, so she acts cruel to ward away those who would want to get close and take advantage of her.
Tera could be considered somewhat of a femme fatale. She isn't shy about using her body and sex as weapons. Having sex with strangers gives her little pleasure - in fact, it disgusts her - but if it's the best way to get close to someone (for whatever reason she would need to) then she will do it without hesitation.
Largely disgusted by human nature, she believes that all people are, at heart, corrupt and worthless - including herself. She holds an intense disdain for herself that she is quite adept at hiding from others. Tera keeps her emotions bottled up, despite how unhealthy that is. One that tries to get her to talk about her feelings with find out - slowly and painfully - why she is considered so dangerous.
It was a cold April night when Koyanagi Tadashi met Shinkou Nanami in a seedy little bar. Smitten by her looks, he slipped something into her drink and told the barman that he would escort her home. Instead, he dragged her to his house and had his way with her. When she awoke in bed with a strange man, she panicked. Not interested in fighting with her, he hit her until she went mute and still. He kept her trapped in his house, tied to a bedpost so she couldn't escape.
When it turned out that the teenage girl was pregnant, Tadashi was thrilled. He had always wanted a child to pass his skills on to, but he had never felt the desire to get married and start a proper family. So, in his mind, this was the perfect solution. He treated his captive well enough that nothing would happen to the baby - except for when she fought against him, or tried to hurt herself, in which cases he would slap her around.
The stress from being raped, impregnated, and abused led to early labor and premature birth. Tadashi's daughter was born a month early and required extra care to survive. The man made sure she received it. He spared little thought for the girl that had given birth and was bleeding out in her hospital bed.
When she was cleared to leave the hospital, Tadashi took his daughter, named Amaterasu, home. He hired a wet nurse to be in charge of her care so he didn't have to leave active duty and actually learn how to be a functional parent. She, too, learned that defying him in any way would lead to blows and threats. Thus, she took care of the child mutely, weathered his harsh words and his fists, and made sure that Tera came to no harm.
Life continued in this way until Tera was a little more than a year old. At this time, Tadashi met a woman named Noriko - a former shinobi of Kusagakure that had been forced to retire from the forces, had her chakra sealed, and been exiled from the village. She had committed many crimes, none of which she would speak about despite Tadashi's coaxing. Noriko was a cruel, callous woman that complimented him greatly, and he took her home. She said she would take care of the baby, which would allow him to dispose of the wet nurse so she would never have an opportunity to tell anyone that the perfect, upstanding jounin Tadashi was a little less pure than he seemed.
Noriko was not a very caring woman, but she sufficed for taking care of Tera. The young child was incredibly well-behaved, because even a toddler learns that repeating the behaviors that get you yelled at and hit is a bad idea. She didn't like being hit, so she was on her best behavior for the woman.
When it was announced that Tadashi had been promoted and given a seat on the Amekage's council, he and Noriko were thrilled. He now had the power to do pretty much whatever he wanted to, so long as he kept it discrete and covered his tracks well. He had access to private files and bank accounts and even the kage's own secret library.
He began slowly siphoning money from the village stores, building himself an ill-gotten fortune. By the time anyone noticed that the money was disappearing, Tadashi had covered his tracks so well that they suspected an entirely different man - someone who was promoted to the council at the same time as Tadashi - and, well, it didn't help his case that his fingerprints were places they shouldn't be and his bank account was overinflated thanks to some handiwork by one of Tadashi's friends.
He used a fair portion of what he stole to purchase items with which he and Noriko could train Tera. No child of his was going to be anything less than perfect, and thus had to receive the best training possible at his hands. Of course, this also meant pushing the young girl to her breaking point on a daily basis. It wasn't even feasible that a three year old could live up to his expectations, or even fully understand what he wanted of her.
Unfortunately, Tadashi was a man of rage. Although he, logically, knew that she was trying her hardest and that it was ridiculous to expect what he did of her, her failings angered him greatly. Whenever she did anything the least bit wrong, he struck her. She knew that she was making him angry, but she didn't know what to do to make him stop. How could she?
As soon as she hit the age where Tadashi himself had entered the academy - four - he petitioned the Amekage to allow him to train her himself instead of sending her to the village's official schooling. Since he was a bright, upstanding member of society, and he was believed to be trustworthy, the kage didn't see why not and granted him permission, provided that he stuck to the same basic curriculum as the academy and subjected her to the same tests and standards. He was quick to agree. This would allow him to keep his young daughter even more isolated, prevent her from being tainted by her peers. She would grow up exactly the way he wanted her to, with no outside interference.
He would impart on her his world view and make her believe fervently what he believed, and no one would ever be able to change her, to sully her, after he was through.
Noriko was in charge of teaching her the book subjects like history and math, as well as give her medical training since, before she'd committed her crimes, she had been one of Kusagakure's top medical shinobi. It was during this training that they discovered Tera's photographic memory. When quizzed on certain subjects, Tera repeated exactly the passages she had seen in the books, even if she didn't understand all of it or know all of the words. So they proceeded to stuff her head full of as much information as they could, figuring that they could teach her comprehension later. Which, although generally an inadvisable strategy, worked fairly well.
During these sessions where Noriko taught the girl out of books, she often had the child sit on her lap. She was strangely affectionate towards Tera, which the girl didn't even register as anything important; the child just thought that Noriko was happy that she was learning things. Until, of course, she started touching Tera inappropriately.
Tera was too afraid of Noriko to tell her father, not that he would have done anything if she had. She didn't like the way the woman touched her, and after their sessions, often retreated into her room to be alone with a stuffed owl toy that Tadashi had purchased for her. She talked to the plushie and told it what Noriko was doing to her and how uncomfortable it made her.
Unbeknownst to the girl, Noriko had a habit of listening at her door. It irritated her greatly that Tera didn't respond well to her molestation, and she was thus determined to punish the girl even more than she already did.
Her father mostly tried physical exercises with her, like running around the perimeter of their fence and doing jumping jacks and whatnot so that, when she was ready for more advanced training, she would be physically prepared for rigorous workouts.
Tera left the village for the first time at the age of six, under the guise of Noriko taking her on a trip to a nearby village that had a candy store as a treat. Instead, she took the girl to a remote cottage near the country's borders, the place she had lived between leaving Kusa and meeting Tadashi. The cottage had a partially assembled laboratory in the basement, which Noriko used to teach the young girl about human anatomy by having Tera aid her in dissecting still-living people. Unsurprisingly, the girl was incapable of stomaching what Noriko forced her to do to people. And the woman showed her no mercy whatsoever; for an order disobeyed, a cut improperly performed, a substandard answer to her questions, the child was beaten and otherwise abused. Trips of this sort continued for several years.
Because of Noriko, Tera is subjected to sexual abuse from her own father; the woman has him wrapped around her little finger, and there is nothing Tadashi wouldn't do if she was the one that asked him. Over time, the two managed to begin further corrupting the council of Amegakure. Tadashi's friends on the council visit him and his child at their home; on the man's word, they join in on the abuse of Tera. She has no idea what to do when asked to service them, and is punished severely for it. Barely conscious after being beaten, she is passed around between the men at their house for their amusement.
Tera's father takes her on 'private missions' that, officially, do not exist. She is required to kill the targets her father has subdued, making her first kill at the age of eight. Her father tells her to cut the men open and take out their valuable organs, his plan being to sell them at premium prices on the black market. Being as young as she is, and terrified, and sickened by the actions she is forced to perform, rarely does she manage to do so without damaging the organs. She is punished and dragged home nearly dead.
With special permission granted by the council, Tera takes the academy graduation test at the age of nine and is registered as an official genin of Amegakure. She is assigned under her father for an apprenticeship so he can continue his abusive behaviors without questions being raised.
Once Tera is older, she returns to Noriko's lab with the woman and is given a refresher course on human anatomy. The woman ties her down in front of mirrors and shows her exactly how the human body works by cutting her open and demonstrating with her own organs. This is also how Tera initially learns to heal; the only relief she gets after Noriko's daily lessons is what she can provide herself. If she didn't manage to at least close up the larger wounds, she would bleed out. Tera hates the way she is forced to live, but not enough to let herself die.
Tera is entered into the chuunin exams when she is twelve, placed on a team whose third member is conveniently unable to participate. Around others her age, she is quiet and awkward, with no idea how to interact or communicate with them. As children are often wont to do, the two teammates pick on her constantly, until the moment when the only male on the team approaches her from behind and nearly gets his throat slit for touching her. After that, they do their best to ignore her presence entirely, as they have no doubt that she would kill them if they stepped out of line.
Their first test was a survival exercise, the object of which was to navigate a training course on one of Kumo's mountains in a certain amount of time. They were supposed to do so without interacting with other teams, and would have failed if they had shown up at the end without all three teammates in good condition.
The second test was based on information gathering. Each team was required to observe a shinobi as they went through their daily routine in the village. At the end of the test, they provided a detailed list of what the shinobi had done, where they had gone, whom they had spoken to - everything they possibly could have noticed.
The third test was a series of individual fights in a tournament-style bracket. Having never been taught how to hold back, Tera fights to kill - and does so, reaching the semifinals of the bracket before being eliminated. Three genin died fighting her, and the one that took her out of tournament was unable to compete further because of the injuries he had sustained.
Despite her skill, Tera is not chosen for promotion at the end of the exams due to her violent nature and inability to interact with her teammates. However, the council pulled some strings and made her a chuunin upon their return home.
Tera received her first solo mission at the age of thirteen. She was practically guaranteed to fail. Her father had a friend that lived outside the village ask for a C-Rank mission for one chuunin to escort him home. Tera was assigned to the mission and escorted the man home without issue. It turned out that the man was a trained shinobi, and subdued the young chuunin instead of allowing her to leave after the successful completion of her mission. He raped her, and nearly killed her for daring to fight back. She came home as a failure; the client reported his near death (that never happened). Tera was forbidden from carrying out missions at the behest of the council (her father specifically) until she could be trusted with the lives of her clients. The sole purpose of the entire farce was for Tadashi to humiliate his daughter even further.
On her fourteenth birthday, she got an actual useful present: an encyclopedia of medicinal plants. Noriko began teaching her about how to use plants to make both remedies and poisons. She takes to this training exceptionally well, and begins mixing her own healing creams, and a sleeping tonic so she can rest without nightmares.
Tera is also taught how to torture, how to make a man (or woman) into putty in her hands through the precise application of violence. Noriko had a tendency to kidnap young women similar in appearance to Tera herself; the woman had always had an inappropriate attraction toward her, which definitely showed in the captives she took for Tera to practice on.
On the day of her sixteenth birthday, Tera's father demands that she service the entire council, all of whom are visiting at their home for drinks after a long meeting. She is no longer willing to lay down and let him walk all over her, and thus refuses. With the aid of many of his friends, he beats her within an inch of her life, makes her scream till she doesn't have a voice, and makes sure she can't heal herself. Noriko patches her up and makes sure she won't die, then leaves her there. After an entire day of neglect, they return, figuring that the insolent girl would have learned her lesson. After receiving treatment, she bows to her father and apologizes for her behavior and requests to be given another chance. Surprised, he agrees, and calls the council to his house.
Tera serves them all tea with an infusion of bloodroot, which renders them paralyzed but doesn't prevent them from feeling. She then proceeds to methodically torture and kill every single one of them, saving her father and Noriko for last. Tadashi curses her for her disrespect and is silenced very slowly as revenge for all that he had done to her. Noriko, strangely enough, seems proud of how far Tera has come; they pushed her until she snapped, and to Noriko, that was beautiful.
Tera removes the heads from the bodies littering her home and seals them into a scroll. As if nothing out of the ordinary has happened at all, she washes the blood from her person, packs her belongings, and leaves. Before leaving the village for good, knowing she would be branded one of the worst criminals in the village's history for the act of slaughtering an entire council, she deposits the scroll of heads on the Amekage's desk and leaves him a message: pursue her if he dared. He would not prove victorious in that endeavor.
Tera uses most of the money she took from her father to purchase an underground warehouse in Mitsu no Kuni, the Land of Honey. She takes mercenary missions in order to rebuild her savings and so she can furnish the warehouse. When missions she can handle prove to be far and few between, she starts selling her body in the red light districts of large gambling cities. Letting others use her for their pleasure was so ingrained into her that it seemed a logical way of gathering funds.
With an empty life, Tera fixates on the one thing that provided her solace: growing plants. She gathers the materials necessary to build a functional greenhouse from the ground up over the course of several years. Tera builds the greenhouse entirely on her own, placing it above the warehouse she called home - a true labor of love. She covers the entrance to her home with a removable floor tile. Then she starts planting, mixing medicinal plants and poisonous ones in among harmless flowers and shrubs.
Tera dedicates herself to her studies for the next eight years, seeking out rare texts and scrolls with which to expand her knowledge. She isolates herself completely, leaving the warehouse only when she had to find a town in which to buy necessities such as food. This isolation has led her down a dark path mentally; to encounter her as she is now would be certain death for any man, shinobi or otherwise.

Master Medic Tera is an iryou-nin of almost unrivaled skill. Her mastery of ninjutsu techniques and medical equipment makes her a top-notch surgeon, and her perfect memory of the human anatomy doesn't hurt that any. Through years and years of practice, she has reached the point where medical techniques are intuitive, so familiar and practiced that they require less chakra and concentration.
Knowledge of Flora Tera owns and has studied a close to comprehensive guide to the flora of the major and minor countries, and can recognize most plants with medical uses upon observation. She knows how to extract toxins from seemingly innocuous plants to make poisons, as well as how to bring out their helpful properties for teas, tinctures, and other remedies. Herbal medicine could be considered her specialty, in fact.
Excellent Chakra Control As a medic, one needs to have superior chakra control. A lot of Tera's training was focused on increasing that control until it was near-perfect. Years of practice have only improved her control even more, and this allows her to use complex medical techniques with ease.
Photographic Memory Tera has perfect sight memory - once she sees a face, she'll never forget it, and once she reads a scroll or a book the text will remain in her mind. However, she does not consider this a strength, because it also leads to reliving her past trauma almost constantly.
Chakra-Enhanced Strength Tera can use her incredible control to apply chakra to any of her limbs in order to enhance the strength of physical actions such as taijutsu. Being that her taijutsu isn't the best, this ability brings it level with her other abilities. If she's really trying, she can crack bones, split boulders, and create large cracks in the ground.

Because of Noriko, Tera is subjected to sexual abuse from her own father; the woman has him wrapped around her little finger, and there is nothing Tadashi wouldn't do if she was the one that asked him.
