: Originating from a middle-class background, Tenten knows the meaning of hard work and dedication. These principles she puts into every aspect of her life despite constantly being underestimated by her opponents. However, she has learned to utilize that to her advantage, often times using it to help her deceive and overwhelm her adversaries. Often overlooked by others but always a presence, whether in the lives of all those around her or just in general, she serves as a maternal figure and puts forth an even mix of determination, confidence, and respect to all those around her (when she receives the same in return) with an ever mellow attitude. She provides a quiet comfort to anyone she comes across. But only those who prove worthy of her trust are privileged to such kind treatment.
To enemies, strangers, and all those who would seek to oppose those that she chooses to align herself with, Tenten is relentless and unforgiving, cool and calculative with an aggressive drive that could match or surpass any she comes across. Knowledgeable in the fighting arts, she has the use of a wide array of weapons at her disposal, coupled with amazingly perfected accuracy that can be attributed to her promising advances in math. Until a person gains her trust, she appears to be constantly defensive and suspicious, all of which are the lingering effects from years of being a witness to the hard and traitorous life in the yakuza/mafia, though she appears to have a soft spot for mistreated women and lost souls. Tenten is not exactly anti-social, but she has a tendency to blend into the background, which in turn actually aids in her observational skills.
At first glance she does not seem the type to willing join such a profession, something that becomes more prominent as one gets to know her on a more personal level. Tenten values honor and respect above all else and will not hesitate to fight for it. While mostly reserved (blending into the background), she is certainly one of the more aggressive kind of girls, which more than likely keeps her stuck under the label of tomboy. More of a jeans and tee kind of girl, Tenten is always ready to get down and dirty with the guys. But thatâs not to say that she doesnât have the capacity to be feminine as well when the mood strikes her. A typical average girl in a typical modern world, her only noticeable flaw would be the lack of confidence concerning her love life. Not one to go searching for a relationship, she is at a loss when one comes looking for her. And as comfortable as she is with the boys, itâs a whole different story when faced with one she actually likes in that wayAppearance
: In every sense of the word, Tenten is what most people would call typical. Dark hair, dark eyes, medium height and an all too average frame for a young woman her age, although her muscles are notably more toned and conditioned from the extensive training and development that comes with being one of the more active kunoichi of Konoha. She stands at a good five foot five/ five foot six inches give or take a few centimeters or so, and weighs roughly somewhere between one hundred ten and one hundred twenty-five pounds depending on how well she's been able to maintain her muscle mass now that her team is no longer around to push and drive her to her limits. Typically average girl in a not so typically average world.
Her clothes, much like her general appearance, seem to be greatly influenced by Chinese culture. Most notably, her hair. More often than not, you would find it pulled up and out of the way, bound into two tight buns set on the crown of her head. But that's not to say that they are a permanent fixture. Only a convenience in the midst of battle. She has no time to worry about things like appearances when she's taking down an entire army, and hair tends to get in the way of pulling sharp blades and unraveling long scrolls of artillery. Her clothes are loose and flowing, allowing maneuverability necessary to accomplish the amazing aerobatics and sky battles she tends to implore during her fights as well as facilitate her occasional need to hide weaponry on her persons.Abilities
: Assigned to a squad led by Maito Gai when she became a Genin, there is no doubt that she is knowledgeable and skilled in the art of taijutsu and hand-to-hand combat. It is also assumed that, while she is the slowest of her team, she is still fairly quick and fights at a fast pace from years of sparring and training with her teammates (some of the fastest shinobi in the entire village). But her specialty and what she is best known for is her skill and extensive knowledge on the use of a wide range of weapons both metal and wood based. In fact, most of her attacks call on her to use of these various tools all at once and in rapid succession. This, often times, involves the use of chakra strings as well, which allow her to call back and sometimes redirect her weapons with a simple tug of her fingers and a little flux in her chakra control. She is also capable of using earth and fire based techniques.
Needless to say, you don't wanna get on this girl's bad side.
Upon arriving, she'll find that her stamina in reference to her chakra reserves has been heightened somewhat from normal, giving her a extended time in which she can utilize the source during battle, though it lengthens recovery time to to hours instead of minutes/ days instead of hours, depending on how much was expelled in a short amount of time and the damage that she took in during the fight.Samples
(These... will involve personal AU!headcanon, but her personality's still in there. I hope that's ok)First Person Sample
: The time is drawing near.
It's taken us months of preparation and endless planning; pages and pages of secrets, and an extreme attention to details that were key to making this raid successful. All the while, we had to both put up a convincing front, relying on our duties and busy schedules to keep anyone from suspecting the truth; from discovering our plan to come face to face with the man who had threatened us with the destruction of the village and our lives with one of our own. And after all the secret meetings and private discussions -- weeks of paranoia -- redemption seems finally in our grasps.
I can practically taste the retribution.Third Person Sample
: Halfway back to her room, she could already tell that they had overdone it with the serum. Then again, there wasn't much else she could expect from being used as a human guinea pig. But Kabuto was usually good and extremely careful at guessing the right dosage for her height and weight, especially with the experimental drugs that he was developing. Or maybe this was simply a form of retribution for being so unmovingly effected by his more gruesom experiments. It was no secret that the 'good doctor
' would find some level of pleasure and satisfaction in the discomfort of others. But given the severity and range of damage that Tenten's techniques tended to generate, she had already seen her fair share of the world's worst of cruelties. The kunoichi would be hard pressed to let it unnerve her now, this far into the game.
But whatever the reason, she was left to deal with the aftermath all the same, stumbling through the corridors with as much coordination and effort that was left after the haze and distortion settled in. And that was when she came across a rather unsavory group of Sound-nin.
Sharp and calloused knuckles cracked into her cheek, throwing the kunoichi off-balanced enough that she crumpled to the ground with hardly a fight. Then again, it was difficult enough to stand with how the earth seemed to spin and shift in her vision. Even as she laid sprawled out on the ground, there was nothing but the feeling of vertigo and the distinct throb of her bruising cheek to bring Tenten comfort. All the while, they continued to tease and taunt -- to show Orochimaru's precious Konoha kunoichi just what they really thought of her -- never relenting against their adversary. Just like they had been taught to be, she supposed.
A rather harsh kick to her stomach snapped Tenten's mind instantly back to the reality of the situation. But despite all the pain and disorientation she was feeling, the kunoichi refused to give them the satisfaction. So it was with every ounce of strength she could pull and muster from her weakening body that the young woman made to stand, teething clenching against the biting cries of protest her body gave. Muffled voices called out in reaction, droning in a deadened sort of warble that she had no hope of understanding. One thing was clear, though. They wouldn't stand by and simply let her go so easily.
But she wasn't so completely helpless either.
