Name: Yuta Sayu
Nickname: The Shadow Demon
Age: Her physical appearance is eighteen; her soul and mind stretches back to the beginning of the Ninja world.
Rank: Rogue Ninja S rank
Former Rank: The rank Yuta had received before leaving Sunagakure was elite jounin; upon leaving her power continues to grow.
Village: Sunagakure (Sand Village)
Elements: Yuta's element is fire.
Kekke Genkai: The Sayu kekke genkai focuses on both the physical aspect and the mental aspect; Yuta, as one of the founders of the deceased Sayu clan, has one of the most powerful manifestations of the clans' kekke genkai. The Sayu clan can control shadow to their will, bend it into different shapes and solidify the shadows, making it into a weapon of choice. (Except for explosives; the shadows cannot self-destruct into explosives.) Pretty much, the Sayu ability over shadow is a mother to the Nara's ability over shadow, the two clans being very distant relitaves.
For the physical aspect, the Sayu were known for their inhuman attributes: increased sense of hearing, insanely tough skin (equivalent to dragon armor), increased sense of smell, and very fast. This was because the founders of the clan were originally dragon demons. The actual physical technique they train to obtain is their ability over their eyes; the Hyuugan technique of Byakugan is also a distant relative to the Sayu's eye technique, Shiranami. The technique allows the user to see through skin, rooms, clothing, and even the ground... unfortunately, it isn't as mobile as the Byakugan, and can only see through things at the users' line of vision.
Level two of Shiranami is the ability to see in the infrared spectrum; keep in mind, chakra comes up on the infrared spectrum as purple, so the user can see chakra in objects, just not people. This eye technique helps when under mist jutsu, because the user can see the heat signature of their target.
Level three is to combine both; in this state, virtually nothing is hidden from the user in their line of sight. Keep in mind that level three has its risks; the more it's used, the more damaged the users' eyes get. The kekke genkai is practically the mother to byakugan and sharingan, though completely different.
So far Yuta is the only alive person of the deceased clan, and she doesn't want to revive the clan - mainly because when the clan was thriving, it was hectic and unstable with the amount of power, causing the new nations to fix their attention on the Sayu clan and attempt to control them.
Personality: Yuta is cheerful and kind, having a soft spot for almost anyone she can relate to. Because she can relate to the jinchuriki hosts, she is seen not taunting them and making them feel hopeless as she battles them... instead she tries to make them feel that it's a good thing their beasts will be removed; they are helping Akatsuki to a peaceful shinobi world, having most of the same views as Pain. Rarely someone annoys her because of her easy going nature... Though her cold side is not something to be tampered with; when you anger her or irritate her she can have a pretty large cuss language. From her sealed demonic powers inside that seal has developed into an alternate personality; when released the two personalities refer to each other as different people though of being the same blood and body. When the seal is released, Yuta appears to have red slit eyes, longer nails as claws, stronger skin, her inhuman speed increased, her senses increased, etc. This personality is sadistic,
almost completely psychopathic, taunting, rude, and sly. Yuta refrains from accessing this power within herself because of that she wishes to overcome her powerful side with making her other side just as powerful. She loves to annoy fellow Akatsuki members and annoy them with nicknames such as... "Blondie"; "Church Boy"; "Sushi-san"; "Blind Weasel"; etc. The members Yuta does not annoy are Pein himself and Zetsu; those two are the ones she looks up to. Yuta listens to Madara and obeys his command without a word though she follows Pain and is most loyal to him than Madara himself. Yuta tries to when she fight end the battle quickly with assassination attacks; she doesn't enjoy torture unless she is pissed off. Her battle strengths lie in taijutsu and ninjutsu... not so much for genjutsu. Yuta has a very large knowledge of vital points, pressure points, etc and with her extremely fast movement she can use those against her opponent to simply knock them out before the battle begins.Yuta is sarcastic and has a good sense of humor, nearly always smiling even if she is upset. If she is upset she won't show it; she believes being strong is smiling for others and not dumping her worries or problems on others, keeping them to herself. Resulting from this when something has been bothering her for quite some time and you annoy her, she would erupt much worse and harshly then she normally would have. Despite her kind nature in battle she is ruthless and taunting, if you annoy her enough and engage in battle she will try to cut down your confidence and hit you where it hurts mentally.
Yuta has a great love for music and art, being seen either playing the piano or writing when she is not participating in missions. Yuta plays the violin and piano when she can; her musical ability is astonishing as she had spent so much time on it. Yuta's view on art is that of the same as both Sasori's and Deidara's... she believes that art is most remembered in a fleeting moment as well as people from all over the world come to one place to see a piece of art that has lasted through hundreds of years. She is great at playing the piano and violin but not so much with the electric guitar... she regularly prefers singing over instruments. Yuta hates being at the center of attention thus not participating in too many activities that require talking in front of crowds... when she does, she blushes and stutters appearing very nervous. Even though she has stage fright she is outgoing and when she is alone she plays her best, whenever she skips class almost always being seen in the training grounds or a ramen stand. Because of this she was easily found when skipping class in academy. Despite skipping class and being late frequently she has a genius IQ so she aces most written tests anyway. Her best class is English outside of the ninja academy when she was young; she aims for becoming an author or musician with her raw talent of writing if she is unsuccessful as a ninja.
Yuta is 5'7 and pale, her body skinny and large chested. Her limbs are small and appear fragile, though don't let that fool you; despite the lack of visual muscle her brute strength is amazing.Her eyes are a stunning emerald green that appear as red slits when her "demon" is released. Her hair is fiery red that glints like flame in the light at sunset and sunrise, reaching down to the small in her back, normally in a ponytail or other sorts. Her attire are just like the picture; when in battle she places the Sand village headband with a line crossed out over her forehead to show as if she hasn't given up yet on the Sand... when actually it's the opposite.
Bio: Yuta, like mentioned before, is the leader and founder of the fallen ancient clan, Sayu - the all-seeing shadow wielders made up of dragon demons and hybrid dragon demons - half human, half demon. The clan had thrived in early ninja history, but proved to be unstable - each of the members became too powerful, and eventually came to seek more from their leader, Yuta. She already knew this and would not give them any more techniques... the clan eventually became at war with itself, dividing into two parts: the Nanashi (No Name), and the Sayu.
When the war within the clan seemed to reach its peak, a man of the name Raze harnessed a new Kekke Genkai: the sharingan, a descendant of the Sayu kekke genkai, Shiranami. Combined, he proved to be unstoppable, and tested his power - on the Sayu clan itself. He almost succeeded, too, until Yuta tried to stop him - they both died on the night of the new moon, being sent back into hell.
In time, he was reincarnated whenever Yuta seemed to be summoned out of Hell, and managed to kill her sometimes - if she doesn't find him first and kill him before he gets the chance. The first time was at early ninja history, the second was at the first ninja war, the third at the third ninja war by her not-so-dead friend, Madara's brother.
At the end of the war she was summoned up yet again, but by accident - Madara had originally tried to summon the Kyuubi, but brought both the Nine Tailed Fox and Yuta up from hell. See, a demon doesn't age - they can die, but they grow their powers back over time and wait to be summoned back onto earth. Usually the process takes hundreds of years for the lesser demons to regrow, but for the more powerful demons their powers grow back quickly - like Yuta's.
Yuta eventually joined the Sand Village to learn of new techniques that were developed since her last time up on earth, and became a student under the teachings of a shinobi, Satoshi. Her goal is simple; kill the reincarnation of Raze before he can kill her, and get revenge yet again for her fallen clan. As of now, the reincarnation is unknown - one of the two brothers, either Itachi Uchiha or Sasuke Uchiha, or maybe Madara himself. (Whoever wants to be the one to try and kill her, be my guest... but if you want to be the reincarnation you kinda have to be a Uchiha.)
After raising in the ranks of the ninja world, she eventually left Sunagakure to seek out the reincarnation - thus joining Akatsuki to get closer to Itachi, and constantly requesting to get a mission for the Leaf Village to get closer to Sasuke Uchiha.
