Physical Description: Yamanoue is a well built character descended
from the house of Masumai. He holds himself with his back straight and a look
of confidence.
Clothing: Yamanoue wears simple clothing, usually home made. He has two
styles of outfits. A civillian style and a shinobi style. His civillian style
has him wearing a hakama, a top and usually a haori, decorated with jade
embellishments, handed down from his great great grandfather. While attending
the academy student he wears something a little more prudent. His hakama is
replaced by trousers, taped around his chins and a light top. Yamanoue tends to
wear a light jacket over the top and often carries a large rucksack around with
him as well as a smaller pouch on his belt around his waist.

Background: Yamanoue comes descended from two formerly important houses.
The House of Yamanoue and the House of Masumai. The House of Masumai had
formerly been a high class Samurai family working only for the daimao. However
war and strife made it impossible for the family to continue in that capacity
due to the fact that the head of the house hold was suddenly a woman whom could
not serve. This loss of position while not immediately losing favor in the
court, lost instead momentum. The House of Masumai had previously been
influential however, headed by a woman few respected the house. They were the
subject of hatred for many other nobel families and found themselves after time
unwelcome at court and ostracised from society at large. On a local level
however, they maintained their power even when nobel families with power in the
court could not. The Masumai family survived to see the fall of the Daimao and
from then on stayed out of nobel proceedings.

The House of Yamanoue was by far not of such nobel heritage. In fact the house
of Yamanoue was initially nothing more than a farming family from the south.
While wars were frequent in the north they rarely affected the south and Ninja
were not known down there. It was not these circumstances that changed the
House of Yamanoue, but the climatic change that soon occurred. A drought over
two years long caused their crops to fail and they as a family were unable to
sustain themselves through the usual means. Yamanoue Issai was the first to
lead the family down another route, the wars to the north were rife and it was
rumoured the pay was good for mercenaries and Issai was after all, skilled.

Profiteering on war and the lives of other people the House of Yamanoue became
a reverered almost feared House of Mercenaries and their wealth soon had them
targetted by local regional lords. Issai defended his home and those around him
mostly out of self protection, he aided those around him in the hope they would
aid him and they did so. The regional lords failed to assassinate the House of
Yamanoue but instead made it nigh on impossible for them to remain. Thus they
travelled north and established themselves in the wilderness. Amassing wealth,
even still the House of Yamanoue built a castle and a home for their people but
the northern peoples did not respond to this with kind. Issai perished at the
hands of a betrayal.

The House of Yamanoue from that point deminished, it's influence as a powerful
mercenary unit suffered greatly that is, until Yamanoue Masu decided to head
further north in the search for work. Masu while walking so the legend goes,
was passed by a speeding carriage, chased by a horde of bandits, he thought
nothing of it, after all, the same things happened every day, they'd done many
themselves. He even took another path through the mountains so that he wouldn't
see them again. This however, turned out to be a significant point in time
where the house of Yamanoue would change forever. From a precipice, he could
see the carriage had rolled, the horses were struggling to get up, the bandits
had surrounded the carriage. The tale goes, that the bandits were trying to
assassinate a young woman whom was crying out for help. In the act of humanity
it was Masu whom ran down the mountain, slaughtered the bandits and saved the
girl an act that was rewarded by the family of the girl. The Masumai family.

The house of Yamanoue and Masumai families joined together one funding the
other and becoming a power to be reckoned with. They were approached directly
by a regional lord to join with their hidden village where they would no longer
be threatened or pursued in exchange for working for them.

Yamanoue Utemaro was born from this marriage but instead of living with his
parents he instead had to go and live with his sister in the Hidden Village as
per the agreement. Often they visited but Utemaro grew up in world essentially
without his parents, only his sister and other relatives who were close by for
guidance. He was handed Issai's robes and declared Heir apparant of the House
of Yamanoue. Although the prince of the family, he still had to work as did
all the family.

Personality: Yamanoue is fun person to be around when it suits him, he
is a Chaotic Good person in a lot of respects, he likes to do what he wants,
when he wants to do it and usually his moral compass points in the right
direction. Although heir to the family, he doesn't really see it as a benefit,
but as a burden and always seeks to distance himself from it, there is a good
chance he will just simply pass the title to someone else.
