Personality

Personality:
As an energetic youth, Shinobu was already a distractible kid, but as he grew into his Caste, it became exceedingly rare for him to not be agitated about something. Looking at him now, it’s difficult to imagine as he seems to evince the exact opposite of a frustrated, fidgety child. He is difficult to fluster and never seems troubled. But there’s still a sharpness beneath that won’t let his calm fool anyone into thinking he’s not dangerous.

He still has a habit of pushing himself to exhaustion from his earlier days when this was his only solution to his problem even though it is no longer necessary. Instead, he trained himself to use the intensity and contrast of motion against stillness from dance and fighting to allow himself an outlet of meditation in movement. He translates this into almost everything he does these days. It means he’s paid a lot of attention to how he carries himself, how he moves, how he speaks and when, whether he’s rising to another’s excitement or easing them back and it’s become something of a performance for him of everyday life. His body language is an exquisite expression of naturally subdued intensity.

He didn’t learn to refocus his drive as much as he learned to contain or release. But to him the restraint doesn’t feel stifling, or worrying, he’s rarely concerned that he won’t be able to hold himself back if he needs to. Shinobu finds it more freeing to know that he has the strength of will and the ability to hold back his Caste and control it as opposed to letting it control him. Which may backfire if he ever comes across a situation where his instincts react too strongly to stop them, but he has yet to encounter a problem. He trusts his training as a geisha and knows how to work with his instincts rather than against them.

It must be said that he is not always an exemplary model of composure, and while he usually concerns himself more with reasons than appearance in such situations when pushed past his limit, there are moments when he regrets not holding his temper. If he can’t find any good reason afterwards for how he reacted, it stays on his mind for quite a while and he tends to subconsciously punish himself with more grueling practice routines for weeks afterwards. But he has learned some of the situations that push him closer to losing control, and tries to take precautions to either avoid them or have company that can restrain him if he can’t. The children of the okiya are one problem, being both a calming influence and a weakness that requires protection. And any woman on her moontime rubs his instincts raw.

His Ruts remain an area of contention with him as he understands that they are a natural function of his Caste and not something to be ashamed of. Nor does fearing their strength help in dealing with them, but he does have to admit that he doesn’t enjoy any aspect of them. He doesn’t like that he has no choice in the matter and that it endangers everyone around him no matter the precautions he takes. So, it is a constant relief to him that he’s yet to cause disaster.

Shinobu’s attention to detail in his physical body does not exclude an awareness of his emotional side and it is this combination that makes him so well liked. He is pleasing on the eye and emotionally intelligent, able to acknowledge and then let go of what he doesn’t need in the moment. Understanding very quickly what is and isn’t welcome in his behaviour. So, he can be very malleable with no set personality or opinions to clash with those around him. He is demure when someone wants to be in control, enthusiastic or exuberant when someone wants to be recognised or celebrated, calm where it is needed, confident when it is wanted, challenging and encouraging. He believes that no client is the same as any other client, and all will have individual tastes, preferences, and requirements, and if he can’t adapt to each, then he puts himself and all the years of hard training to shame.

So, beneath the adaptable surface layer, Shinobu is a man who takes his role very seriously. He is no longer worried about proving his worth as a geisha of Ureshi-sa, instead, he wants to help maintain or increase their reputation if he can. To give back something more than just repaying his debt. And to never sully their reputation.

To these ends, he doesn’t, honestly, have much personal ambition. He simply wants to do his best in everything that is expected of him. But he also understands that as a geisha of Ureshi-sa he represents them whenever he is in public or working, even in private, and despite his usually modest focus in putting others first, he is by no means a pushover. He trusts their Otou-san implicitly and doesn’t fear reprisal should he deny any request he views as below standard, whether it be due to immorality, indecency, or simply excessive entitlement. And he won’t hesitate to back his refusal with the strength of a Sapphire Jewel or the threat of a caged Warlord Prince. He is not afraid of the violence inherent in his blood, and often embraces it gladly while training or sparring or even between the sheets, and he doesn’t see anything wrong with showing a bit of temper if it gets his point across. Nor is he insecure in his own judgement in where to draw the line.

In other areas, Shinobu is not an exceptionally private man. He respects confidentiality and personal matters and asks that others respect his privacy if he doesn’t want to talk about something, but such occasions are rare. He’s learned that talking about a problem is far more useful than holding it in, and showing care and concern to friends and family is never wrong. He likes to ask questions and learn about peoples’ days and opinions and what matters to them, and he doesn’t really care what turns or twists a conversation might take. Or if quiet is preferred, he’s fine with that, too. Good company, really, is something he enjoys in many forms.

As an active member of his okiya, he also enjoys watching the younger generation growing up and learning and tries to be as calm and patient and helpful with them as he knows how to be. His protective instincts around the okiya’s young trainees are quite strong, as is his disregard for dignity where they’re involved and inability to be strict with them. He rather likes being a big brother, and he softens almost visibly in the presence of any child. Rather like a guardian dog. He doesn’t want one of his own though, he just finds their company so much more innocent than most. Until they hit puberty, then he often can’t help wondering if he was ever that bad…


Likes:
  • Making himself useful – Although he’s learned to curb the intensity of his emotions and his Darker Jewels eat up some of the excess energy that used to plague him, he never lost his willingness to take on a little extra work or effort to help out around the okiya. In fact, his enthusiasm for doing odd jobs or making himself available should anyone need an extra hand has only increased over the years. Being needed does help ease his Warlord Prince fretting, and many of the tasks are cooperative, letting them be productive while spending time together.
  • Masks – While it is a well known truth that geisha are actors in their roles, it is not often acknowledged, as it would ruin the tacit agreements between client and geisha. Generally speaking, Shinobu is content with this, but he does appreciate the freedom that a performing mask gives him to publicly play a part. And he likes the distance the performance offers in having a nonparticipating audience. But the reason he’d put the mask ahead of performance in terms of liking each would simply be that he finds them fun and somewhat transformative.
  • Traditions – Shinobu is proud of his Tacean heritage and the artistic styles and ceremonies and expressions that have been shaped over the years and passed down through the ages. Practicing traditional arts and activities makes him feel connected to a land he loves. He is also curious about the traditions of other Territories, as he feels it’s a good way to learn about the people who practice them.

    Dislikes:
  • Strong perfume – He has a sensitive nose. And while it usually stays at dislike, it must be said that it can be difficult to maintain one’s dignity while trying not to tear up or sneeze. Too, it gives him a headache and there is no easy way to tell someone they’ve gone overboard in their application of scented product.
  • Being compared to a prostitute – While he’d never wish to scorn the difficulties of those in such a position, Shinobu would be hard pressed to not feel insulted by the comparison. And by the expectations implied. To say that he, and every other geisha, has trained so hard for so many years just so people can pay to have sex with them is… An oversimplification of the only traditional position that gives a man any power in Tacean society. And a crass misunderstanding of the services they provide.
  • Traditionalists – While he likes traditions, and often respects the reasoning behind many cultural norms and ways of life, Shinobu has less respect for those who staunchly argue against the further development of their culture and the bettering of today’s youths. He doesn’t approve of the argument that this is how it’s always been done, or that looking to the future means abandoning the past, or that innovation brings chaos. In his mind, it is best to remember the past while looking to the future, not cling to the past and run away from the future.

    Fears:
  • Civil War – He wasn’t alive during the last one, but he’s heard stories, read memoires and histories, seen the consequences… He’s been in a few fights. And he’s felt the tension of political turmoil after Ishiyo no Izayoi went mad. The fact that he can’t quite imagine how bad it might become if the clans do go beyond words in their clashes frightens him for his own and Tacea’s future. His fear goes even deeper than speculation with his newfound wariness of the main clans. Since his brother’s death at the hands of the Dragon Queen, he’s been less willing to overlook the political maneuvering and petty squabbles over power. He resents that he can understand why because it means that their jockeying for position has been normalised barely 30 years after the end of a civil war. He can no longer tell if they know the difference between for the good of the people and for their own gain. The Shingetsu and Izayoi, however, have particularly large dark marks against them in his personal bias due to their apparently greater involvement in the whole mess. But he does try to be fair in disliking their political presence all equally, and not being biased against individuals, though he finds it occasionally difficult to manage.
  • Becoming a monster – Although this would, in some situations, be a useful thing, intimidation is an means to an end, not something he wants to do without reason. And not something he wants to be seen as without just cause. He doesn’t think too much of scaring adults, as most of them are complete strangers and he doesn’t really care for their wellbeing, but he has a growing fear of having to act in front of the okiya’s young recruits and making them afraid of him. It doesn’t help that someone seems to be targeting the okiya recently.
  • Finding love, or his bonded – While he is confident in his training and ability to satisfy a woman’s immediate needs, Shinobu is afraid that should anyone come to mean more to him, he would be unable to show it. Despite his age and profession, he’s had no actual experience in a romantic relationship, and he’s somewhat fearful of the balance between serving as a geisha and loving anyone in an intimate capacity. He’s also afraid of facing similar difficulties should he bond with someone other than the Queen he is expected to fight for and have to face the problem of conflicting loyalties. So, despite a small sense of failure that he’s never yet fallen in love or found the one, he’s rather more relieved than he’d want to admit, because he wouldn’t want to disappoint.

    Craft Strengths:
  • Reading emotions – As attentive as he is to another’s body language, Shinobu’s knack for reading social cues goes a level deeper in his sensitivity to an individual’s psychic state. Having polished this empathy over the course of his professional life, he finds it helpful in adapting his behaviour on the fly and ensuring that missteps or misunderstandings are smoothed over or corrected before they can grow. He’s not infallible, however, and can be distracted by stronger emotions in others if there’s several people nearby.
  • Enhanced Battle Craft – Combined with his ability to pick up on emotions, having practiced with a kyoketsu-shoge, which is best used against multiple opponents, Shinobu has an edge in any fight greater than a one on one, where he can keep track of his allies and opponents and make informed decisions as to the next moves and who is the most dangerous or unsure of themselves.

    Craft Weaknesses:
  • Emotional manipulation – While Shinobu uses more straightforward and honest means to deal with others’ emotions, and doesn’t have much skill in this Craft besides, thanks to his greater empathy, he has very little resistance to his own being manipulated and can confuse authentic reaction and forced reaction.
  • Enhancing his senses – Although he has the training to enhance his senses, he hasn’t perfected control over the extent of the enhancement and, since his Offering, has found that even just enhancing one sense at a time is overwhelming and painful. It gives him a near immediate migraine. With enough time and full concentration, he can slowly increase the strength of the spell, but it’s unusable in a fight and most situations would have finished by the time he’s adapted, so he mostly just leaves it alone.
Life Story

Brother: Shun Kuroda, Tiger Eye to Purple Dusk Warlord | b. 165 AP (deceased)
Sister: Ai Kuroda, Yellow to Rose Priestess | b. 175 AP

History:
Born the second son to a poor family in a small village near Ito, Shinobu’s birth strained already limited resources. But although they’d considered giving him up to a temple, they hesitated too long. While he was still nursing, they could afford to keep him, and by the time he was weaned, his mother was reluctant to leave him in someone else’s care. For a few years, they managed, though Shin has vague memories of hunger and curling up all crowded under one threadbare blanket. He isn’t sure if they’re his own or built from his brother’s stories, but they leave him grateful for the position he’s been given.

Then his mother was in an accident that left her unfit to work for a long time, and on only their father’s income, two growing boys were no longer manageable. But deciding who to give up is no parent’s idea of fun, and as they explored their meager options, they came to hope that they might not separate the brothers. It eased their guilt, and further lessened the burden on their wallets to think of them continuing to grow up together, and both better fed. Wishful thinking, perhaps, but it was only strengthened when a geisha passed through their village.

Their father was quick to present them to the recruiter, but although the man was polite, he initially equivocated. Not wanting to make any decision right away. It wasn’t until that evening when a commotion arose that he saw greater promise. A woman had been attacked by a stray dog for the food she’d been carrying, and the two young boys had been playing nearby so they’d gone to help. When he came upon the scene, it was to find Shun earnestly gathering everything up while Shinobu hid a bitten wrist and assured the woman, who’d been more inconvenienced than in true danger, that everything was fine. Seeing traits worth nurturing, Ryuuen Kirijo made up his mind to bring them back with him.

And so, just as their parents hoped, both were accepted into the well-known okiya. Thereafter followed several months of adjustment, during which they had both to adapt to apparent luxury as well as overcoming the hurdles of education. For little Shin, who did not entirely understand the circumstances, having a familiar face was more comforting and immediately helpful than it was for his brother, Shun. But both nurtured a fierce determination to prove themselves worth the opportunity they were being given.

The first friend they made was a young boy who kindly shared his meal with Shin, who hadn’t been at all subtle about his hopes despite his brother’s attempted remonstrance. But it proved to be a lucky encounter, and a lasting relationship. Particularly as the boy, one Naoji, knew the okiya like the back of his hand and was well-versed in the daily life they didn’t know much about.

Even as a young boy, once Shin recovered from malnutrition, he had more than enough energy to spare, and he took to the physical training like a fish to water. He had to tire himself out in order to sit through the quieter classes, so… he was a little slower to pick up the less active pursuits. But there again, his brother helped him out, repeating what they’d learned and benefitting from the repetition himself. And when the lessons became more complicated, they managed to convince Naoji to give them some pointers, and then extra, small lessons. Before long, they had a friendly rivalry going between themselves, which pushed them to greater heights, but never developed into anything detrimental for their relationship.

Because his brother was older than him, Shun found a mentor and began the next phase of training earlier than Shinobu, leaving him to spend the next few months feeling a little more lonely than he was used to. He adapted fairly quickly, however, rarely having much free time between practice, studying and working towards finding a mentor of his own to pay attention to the feeling. And although Naoji already had a mentor lined up, he was still too young, nor were they the only three in the okiya. From that point on, he and his brother strayed farther apart, while he and Naoji grew closer together. But it wasn’t as though they never saw each other or spoke again.

Once he found a mentor of his own, Shin’s education stepped up a notch. Now, he didn’t only have to remember his lessons and practice perfection, he had to put them to proper use. Of course, with a reputation to maintain, his mentor didn’t toss him in the deep end right away, but Shin still felt a little overwhelmed just watching. Luckily, he turned out to have a natural emotional intelligence, even if the rest of him still needed some polish, so with a bit of practice he found it easier to figure out the best approach to reading the mood and adapting to the atmosphere and type of company wanted. It still took him several years of training to combine those lessons with the ones about retaining an even temper and steady energy throughout an entire visit. As a Warlord Prince, he found that somewhat more difficult than he wanted it to be.

But after a nerve-wracking first Rut that Ureshi-sa had long been prepared for—he was removed from the okiya to a safe place where he could work off the madness in him—and continued, pointed advice from the older Warlord Princes of the okiya, he discovered that part of him that had been lurking under the surface. It frightened him less when he finally understood it all and helped him find his equilibrium and quickly settle into a more steady temperament he could maintain without straining himself. Shortly after this accomplishment, he made his Offering and came away with a Sapphire, and a week later Shinobu graduated into a full-fledged, professional geisha.

He has never stopped practicing his skills or composure, but now finds that he rather enjoys his time spent with most clients and that it’s become second nature to fall into the behaviour he knows will be most welcome at any given time. Even, occasionally, outside of work.

It’s only been during the last decade that Shinobu’s gotten to know his younger sister or reconcile with his family. Shun wanted little to do with them, and Shinobu didn’t feel like he had the time until he passed his assessment to become a full fledged geisha. He also couldn’t remember many details, and asking Shun only made the man scowl. But he decided to push for an answer and at least try to find them once before he made his pledge. It was much easier than he’d expected, and his vague recollections were met with a nicer, if still quite simple, house. He didn’t recognize the woman who answered the door, but she recognized him, and that was enough for him to forgive them. He told them that he is grateful for the life they gave him and merely happy to see them doing better. He met his sister, and that was all. So, now, he will occasionally write to them, or stop by to see Ai where she’s working in one of Ito’s temples, but he went more for a sense of closure before officially cutting ties than to renew any relationship.

Since his graduation, the years have moved in a steady rhythm that allowed him to continue looking forward to his future. He met many people, and made many connections, made a name for himself and upheld his okiya’s reputation. He has few complaints about his life.

The year his brother earned a position as one of Queen Ishiyo no Izayoi’s Daggers, Shinobu felt a somewhat conflicting pride. For the most part, he was proud of his brother’s accomplishment, and of the honour it afforded Ureshi-sa. He thought his brother well worth the honour and fully able to live up to expectations. Admittedly, a small part of his confliction was the disappointment in not qualifying himself, but mostly he wasn’t sure if he should be too happy over circumstances that came about from incredible disasters and on top of a great many deaths. The only reason Shun had the opportunity while in his prime is because of the eruptions that made Yuki Natsuhana no Ariake abdicate.

His discomfort eventually dwindled when the ceremonies finished and Shun’s position was simple fact, and life returned, mostly, to normal. But while he was proud for his brother, Shinobu couldn’t say he liked the Queen he served quite as much as the previous one, which he diplomatically kept to himself. She was far more rigid in her traditionalism than Yuki Natsuhana, and he wasn’t entirely sure if he thought that was good or bad until she decided that one man’s betrayal was worth the life of far too many loyal and innocent men. His brother among them.

Although they hadn’t been close for several years, they had grown up together, they were family. The surprise of it struck him hard. For all Shun was in a position that could be dangerous, Shinobu had not expected the man to just… vanish. One minute there, the next just gone. It felt surreal, and was slow to sink in. He didn’t try to rush it, didn’t really want to believe it, but gradually disbelief turned into grief and tears behind closed doors and then back to business as usual. He tried not to let it show and got on with his life. He is still mourning however, and sometimes catches himself thinking of something to tell the man before he remembers, but it no longer hurts as much and remains a somewhat distant sense of bereavement.

It helped that Ishiyo no Izayoi’s madness didn’t leave a stable political climate, and he had politics to offer other concerns. Seeing the territory go from traditionalist to acknowledging (even reluctantly) a temporary Dragon Father was a good distraction. And now, with a new Queen found to take over, it’s coming up on his turn to fight for the right to stand beside her. And, despite, or perhaps because of, his misgivings towards the main clans, he’s more than willing to give it his best effort. He wants this to work, he wants to support her. And even if he doesn’t know the woman, he trusts the judgement of those who know better than him. Besides, if they can’t make this work… He’s afraid history will repeat itself.


Show Us What You've Got
Character in Play:
In a room lit to match the twilight and furnished to comfortably seat a few guests around low tables, the quiet atmosphere was reminiscent of most evenings spent at home relaxing. The décor was tastefully done, and Shinobu’d found himself praising the bouquets and colour choices, the subdued presence of an artful touch, when they’d first been shown inside to prepare. Now, he marveled at the arrangements yet again as he knelt on the raised platform and bowed to his audience, waiting for his evening’s partners to begin playing. He had not seen any overlapping heads or branch obscured faces, no one would have any difficulty enjoying the performance. Good design.

The first echoing timbre was a single note of bamboo clappers, silencing the expectant mutters and striking as though from every corner as it came back from the walls. Behind the mask he wore, Shinobu felt his breath come fast for a moment, and then slowed as the shamisen spoke the second sentence and he raised his head. He eased into motion, matching the dignity of the music with the rote care of shuffled steps and expressive arms and hands and the sudden snap of his fan flaring open. Enjoying the respectful attention and pleasant exercise, he let himself be lost in the familiar movements. Unable to see well, and focusing primarily on the music rather than his audience, Shinobu heard the door slide open, but he couldn’t see who it was.

He assumed it was merely a servant on an errand, and thought nothing more of it until a rustle underscored the music. A low murmur that came with hesitation and then, a growing dread.

Ordinarily, any interruption of a performance was exceedingly rude, and to stop himself was unprofessional, but Shinobu was already standing still and dipping into a brief obeisance to their host before the woman was finished rising from her seat. His hands shook slightly when he closed the fan and tucked it into his obi, and he knelt respectfully by way of acknowledging the importance of whatever news had arrived. Saito-san would not have stopped them without reason. They could finish later.

As he watched, Saito-san moved from her position to make her way to the stage. At her side, an old woman, dressed like a servant, wrung her hands with a wide, white-eyed expression. She was the source, he thought, of what he had first felt.

“I am afraid, Shin-san, that Oba-chan has ruined your lovely performance with her news.” Her voice, usually so sure of itself, was trembling, and Shinobu pulled the mask away quickly to shake his head with the best smile he could muster, though it was poorly done. Then, rather than stand above her as she hesitated at the platform’s edge, he shuffled closer on his knees, ignoring the potential wear on his costume and offered her a helping hand. When she accepted, he squeezed her fingers encouragingly, hoping a warm touch might help ease whatever burden she was carrying. A moment later, he wasn’t sure he had any warmth to give as her words pierced ice through his heart.

“I-… I do not have many details now, but I have been informed, and some of you may have heard… The Dragon Mother has- There has been a disaster in her Court. I fear this is not a night to be away from our families. Please excuse me.” There were tears on the woman’s cheeks now, and Shinobu recalled an earlier mention of her daughter being a guard there. Was she-?

*Help her servants escort the guests to the door.* Rising to stand beside her, offering a discreetly supportive shoulder at her back as he turned to give instruction to the young pair who’d only come out for the practice and were staring in shock, hands lax on their instruments, Shinobu reached across the threads rather than speak out loud. She was right, this was no time for entertainment. There was a nagging at the back of his mind that he struggled to ignore as the news spread over the guests. Instead, he tucked a hand against the swaying woman’s elbow and guided her back to the stage’s edge, using the step down to coax her into sinking onto it and taking a seat.

“Saito-san, is there anythi-”

“She’s gone mad.”

“Saito-san?”

“She killed them. Did she truly kill them, Oba-chan?”

The woman wasn’t paying him any attention, though Shinobu knew it was shock rather than ingratitude. And he was straightening up to find her some water or a cushion or another member of her family to provide any sort of comfort, he’d drag them if he had to… When the words fully registered. Dragon Mother. Disaster. She killed them. Killed them, killed them. Shun…

Shinobu staggered three steps, almost falling before he caught himself and stopped there. Unable to move forward, unable to go back. He needed to hear the answer. He needed to know.
