2nd of 6 Costume Tests for the DR In Memoriam OC ninja.
Juuken the knife user, at ages 18, 14 and 5.
At 5, Juuken was one of those little kids who always ends up rough-housing and exploring places that are off-limits.
He's younger than Suzume by about half a year or so.
Juuken, at 14, still rough-houses and tends to get in trouble a lot for shooting off his mouth at inappropriate times. He teases his teammates a fair bit - Suzume for her aggressiveness and percieved lack of feminine qualities and Kagomaru for his height and use of puppet jutsu. He also tends to get annoyed at his teammates as their longer range of effective combat often puts him on the sidelines.
At 18, Juuken has made up for his short combat range limitation by focusing on increasing his speed. He's mellowed out somewhat in terms of "open mouth, insert foot" syndrome, although he still does like to rough-house with others. His teasing of his teammates is now more in line with the friendly, close sibling-like relationship he has with his team.
Juuken's specialty is close-range knife combat and his primary element is most likely either lightning or wind. (Haven't decided yet.
Art notes: I hate drawing toes. And why do Suna children wear legwarmers?
