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.

HAIR light chestnut brown
Unusually tall for a woman (1.83m), Kasumi’s slender figure is easily identifiable in any crowd, and those who do not notice her face feel her stern gaze as it burns through them.
Her narrow vividly purple eyes gleam like jewels contrasting against her narrow and pale face, her expression always serious and somber. Kasumi has light brown hair reaching all the way to her thighs. During day to day life she collects it in a high ponytail behind her back with two bangs running down the sides of her head. During operative missions she gathers her hair in a dark purple wrap.
Kasumi’s uniform for active duty heavily resembles the standard Kumogakure shinobi uniform (white single shoulder vest with a diagonal line design over a grey short sleeved tunic and black pants tied to fit the leg under the knee) with slight modifications: the large sector of the vest is covered with a metal plate with the design inscribed into it, two metal plates are sewn to each shoulder (one carrying the village symbol and one carrying the prison criminal pursuit unit symbol). In addition she wears dark purple fingerless gloves that cover her wrists. Her footwear is modified standard shinobi open toe boots with the heel portion of the sole cut off to allow constant skin contact with the ground.
She wears a 5 senbon reloadable launcher on her right wrist aimed at a right angle to her hand and pointing outwards. Her belt contains several holders for small vials of paralytic nerve agent on the right and a pouch on the left side. She wears a holster on her left thigh meant for containing additional senbon cartridges.
when spending her time in other countries on official business Kasumi wears a slightly modified Kyudo Gi(it is slightly more form fitting around the waist, coloured white with dark purple lining with a dark purple Kumogakure logo on the right breast ), a dark reddish brown hakama , snow white tabi and low height standard Geta sandals. Kasumi prefers (and even enjoys) having intricate braids in her hair to go with this outfit
when she feels free from representing the prison guard, she prefers a much more simple and comfortable outfit: a dark purple form fitting tank top with a tight neck collar, a rib length long sleeved kimono top in a creamy ivory hue, dark grey capris (3/4 length pants) with string tassels on the bottom and simple open toe boots.
“We are the elite of the forces maintaining this prison, we must therefore act appropriately” Kasumi is almost always straight faced and solemn, almost morbid at times. She takes her job very seriously and believes she represents her unit at all times, she only lowers the formal façade in her own village (and even then only if nothing of importance is going on). For that reason, Kasumi tends to dress and act in a very calculated manner next to strangers and especially foreigners.
“ Didn’t you know? All ANBU are in fact shinobi that defected from kirigakure, they must wear masks because they are wanted criminals here ” In actuality, behind the straight face and layers of official behaviour and garb lies a very mischievous mind. Kasumi often utilizes her usually deadpan way of speaking and acting to convince people to believe in absolute nonsensical and impossible things (she sees making people fall into such logical pitfalls great entertainment, and the deeper people fall into confusion or false belief the better). Of course, she only allows herself to exercise her brand of humour in unofficial situations and only with people she is at least somewhat familiar with.
“I am to deliver you alive, that doesn’t mean I can’t break some bones to get you there” During missions Kasumi again feels she must represent her unit as best as possible, not with seriousness and formality but rather with efficiency and brutality in combat. Her approach to battle is about outmanoeuvring her opponent and staying one step ahead in the flow of battle (manoeuvrability is especially important since most targets would turn and run if they find out they’re being tracked and hunted after). Kasumi uses her Doton prowess to manipulate the environment in her advantage and then proceeds to use her impressive taijutsu skills to pummel her opponent(s) into submission.
“ They cast me away to die because I stained their lineage, I’ll make their pride obsolete ” Even though Kasumi is focused on preforming her duties as best as possible, her life dream is to make a Doton adaptation of all existing Suiton jutsu thus making the later obsolete in her mind.
Cruel Sense of Humour
Academy age: 7
Genin age: 12
Chuunin age: 14 (two days beofre her 15th birthday)
S.Joinin age: 20
the Makuronami family is one of the oldest noble families in the land of water, as they took active part in the foundation of the country and its establishment in the shinobi world. They are a proud clan with no special distinction from other families in Mizu-no-kuni except for their immense wealth they achieved through the ages not without underhanded and criminal activity.
The Makuronami have no kekkei genkai (although they did utilize an array of several water related special jutsus) and they take pride in that since every member was born with water chakra nature, the pure water chakra nature, and needed not be tampered with or ruined with any additional elements for it represented the land of water and the families strong bond with it (some even believe the Makuronami were strongly involved with encouraging and sustaining the fear of kekkei genkai users). Every single member born or married in to the family had water nature with no exceptions, until…
Kasumi was born, a direct descendant of the family members that founded the structure of the land of water so many years ago, as a child she had everything she needed and would fit perfectly with the rest of her family if not for one problem, she couldn’t preform even the simplest of water jutsu.
Eventually her elders decided that something was definitely wrong and had her test her affinity using chakra sensing paper. To their surprise (and horror) instead of the paper getting wet it quickly turned to dust and scattered in the wind. As the elders followed the trail of dust one thing was clear, the purity of the lineage has been broken.
The elders discussed the matter and consulted each other for two straight days before they came to a decision. The girl was declared deathly ill and was locked in her room with no visitors coming in or her ever going out. After a week-long lockdown, in the middle of the night, she was taken out of the village and left alone in the plains of the land to die (after all, a six year old girl could not possibly survive by herself in the wild).
Kasumi was announced dead soon after. Since it would be impossible to keep such a secret for such a prominent family, a lookalike body was found and a great funeral was held.
Fate though, had a different plan for the girl. Tsuta Ishihana, one of the prominent shinobi of Kumogakure, was on a reconnaissance mission to ascertain the status of one of Kumo’s most wanted crime lords. As she was returning through the wilderness back to her home country to report, she came across a dirty, starving and dehydrated little girl. Tsuta could not force herself to leave a dying child in the wild so she took Kasumi with her back to the village.
Tsuta raised Kasumi as her own and trained her to succeed her at her job and position at the prison criminal pursuit and acquisition unit, the HATSUKA Butai (which stands for: Hanzai-sha Tsuikyu to Kakutoku butai - 犯罪者追求と獲得部隊).
To accomplish this she tried to teach her to use her signature jutsu “Futon: Tanchi no Kaze (air release: wind of detection)” (which in its simplest and most striped down form is a simple jutsu, but requires great proficiency for higher levels of use).
Kasumi struggled with preforming it successfully but has shown great aptitude to using earth related abilities, therefore her new mother helped her develop a Doton variant of the jutsu thus started the evolution of one of Kasumi’s greatest abilities:
the ability to study other peoples jutsus, analyse their chakra manipulation and eventually reverse engineer them to fit hem for her own needs (thus getting access to jutsus without having them be taught to her if she saw them enough to be able to analyse all of its external facets).
Ever since Kasumi became a Genin her adoptive mother, who continued climbing through the ranks of the HATSUKA Butai, started training Kasumi specifically to become part of the unit. She became unusually agile and quick for her young age and quickly outgrew her fellow Gennin in terms of skill. Thanks to her special training she quickly passed her Chuunin exams and joined the ranks of the HATSUKA butai as a support unit.
On one of her earlier missions, Kasumi was accompanied by Tsuta. The mission was to capture a known crime lord from Kirigakure name Uzu Makuronami, Kasumi has long since forgotten her family ties to the Makuronami family and did not see anything unusual with this task or why her mother insisted they take it. When the two arrived at Kirigakure Kasumi used her abilities to track down the location of Uzu (with guidance from Tsuta), and the two soon cornered him outside his house.
Seeing as he had no escape Uzu resorted to trickery to attempt to escape: he told Kasumi everything about her past, her abandonment and the reason the family disowned her claiming her earth chakra to be inferior. Uzu hoped those news would distract both his pursuers enough for him to escape but his plan worked only partially. Kasumi was in shock, repressed memories from her early childhood popping into her head and fragments of other memories started to make sense.
Unfortunately for Uzu, Tsuta (the woman that rescued Kasumi from death all those years ago) already knew about most of those things from her first meeting of Kasumi in the wild. Tsuta quickly reacted to Uzu’s escape attempt and restrained him. On her return to the village, Kasumi was in a turmoil, everything she thought to be true was at best only half so. She avoided any human contact for several days and contemplated what or who she is supposed to be.
Eventually, she came to the realization of the fact of how well Tsuta raised her, how well she took care of her and how well she trained her. She understood that kumo was the only home she could remember clearly and that prison force was the only goal she ever had in her life.
Kasumi made up her mind: She would follow Tsuta’s path mother or not and gelp her in any way possible. In addition, her mind boiled with fury over the words Uzu uttered about her being of inferior existence, Kasumi decided to take her revenge on the family that abandoned her by using her abilities to reverse engineer jutsus to remove (at least in her mind) the need to ever want to use or learn Suiton techniques .
Several years have passed and Tsuta, her non-mother has been promoted to be the head of the HATSUKA butai. With her promotion a position opened at the core unit. Tsuta quickly filled her with her adopted daughter, which required a promotion to Jonin, but the Jonin Hanchou of the village considered Kasumi to be too young and unskilled to be promoted yet.
To refute the Hanchou Tsuta offered a simulated escape from the prison as a test: four prisoners would be “allowed” to escape, Kasumi would be sent to intercept them along with another three of the lower ranking members of the unit, their performance would then be evaluated and compared and if Kasumi would outperform any of them she would be accepted into the unit.
While Kasumi couldn’t keep up with the other three in terms of battle abilities and proficiency, the Jonin leader was impressed with Kasumi’s ability to keep tabs on the locations of all escaped fugitives during the whole length of the pursuit (to the point of even warning one of her temporary squad mates of an impending ambush).
The Jonin leader had no choice but to admit Kasumi’s specialization and skills were a perfect fit for the unit, he awarded her with the rank of special jonin tasked with tracking the criminas while others would do most of the fighting.
For the next three years Kasumi was honing her hand to hand combat skills and perfected the use of senbon needles as combat tools (especially as a method of delivering toxins straight to specific parts of the body) and reached the level of a full member of the HATSUKA butai
Cartridge loaded wrist senbon launcher (on wrist)
3 extra senbon cartridges/magazines (to a total of 4, in hip holster)
50 6cm long senbon (waist pouch)
20 10cm long senbon (waist pouch)
5 vials of paralytic neurotoxin on belt
senbon Knuckles (3 10cm senbons mounted on a hand grip similar to a bagh-nakh weapon)
Scroll used for Mud Wolves technique (carried strapped to her belt, behind her back)
Jutsu revrse engineering: through understanding of chakra manipulation techniques, Kasumi can 'reverse engineer', learn and adapt any jutsu she encounters given enough time to research, study and analyse the way the jutsu works and the way the user manipulates chakra to preform it (the more familiar Kasumi is with the specific jutsu the quicker she can figure it out)
Genjutsu resistance : Kasumi uses her sensing pulse jutsu frequently and memorizes little facts about the terrain around her that would not be commonly known to people, because of this she can often tell when somebody tries to rip her mind out of reality making it easier for her to resist the effects of genjutsu
High Agility : Because of the specific position Kasumi has been training for since her adoption she accentuated speed and agility in all aspects of her ninja life, training her muscles and reflexes to be as quick as she could make them
(for reference see: Ray Kon from the Beyblade series).
Remove both of those and just describe. Your application is official and shouldn't reference things that are personally outside of your character such as other series. Personality: I like that you used quotes but I don't understand the Kirigakure one. Also, “manoeuvrability” should be “ maneuverability”. Break apart those paragraphs, please. x.x Huge walls of text. Also watch your spelling and capitalization. Your rank: Special Jounin is a rank. Change “Jounin” to “Special Jounin” in the small box and put her age in. Password: Dahell is Madworld? xD (This doesn't make your answer wrong, just... what is it? XD)
Overall I think you should comb through your profile for spelling, capitalization, and spacing. There aren't many errors to fix, so get back to me when you clean up.”

And although its a very minor thing, my spellchacker refuses to accept it so I decided to check: Manoeuver is an alternate way of spelling maneuver (I assume its the Brittsh vs American way similar to colour/color or grey/gray) (source: www.thefreedictionary.com/manoeuver)
The ANBU related quote is an example of those malicious lie jokes Kasumi tells people (though only if she knows she can pull it off).
