According to the Raikage of Kumogakure, Akira Uchiha is a renowned Jōnin, and recorded in their Bingo Books.
Akira has the appearance of pale-skinned man with spiky, dark black hair and matching onyx eyes. As a child and during his days as a chūnin, Akira's hair was shoulder-lengths, but he started growing it out upon becoming a jōnin, to the point that it reaches past his waist, and he has two long, spiky locks on each side which frame his face, and wears his bangs over his forehead.
Even as a jōnin sensei, Akira rarely dons the customary Konoha flak-jacket, preferring to wear a custom outfit, presumably so as to better display his clan's crest. Akira's attire consists of a dark-gray kosode, left open to reveal his chest, and adorned with a large Uchiha Crest on the back, as well as two smaller ones on the shoulders. This makes Akira one of the few Uchiha that do not a shirt with a high-collar. He does, however, wear the dark pants from the Konohagakure Shinobi uniform, as well as traditional shinobi sandals.
Akira is generally stern and serious, but he can also be cheerful, and shows great concern over his team-mates and students, taking priority over their safety rather than the successful completion of a mission; instilling the idea that teamwork is necessary to success. Even though he can be carefree, being late for appointment, he can also act aloof and apathetic to others; much to their irritation; adding to this annoyance is the fact that he often loses track of time, and often speaks harshly about sensitive topics.
Akira is in possession of a rather solitary, and matter-of-fact attitude; being rather detached, though he is not arrogant in the slightest; in fact, he is rather modest about his abilities, even stating that his students have the potential to surpass him. Because of his natural stoic behaviour, it can be utilized to his advantage in battle, as it is rather simple for him to remain calm and composed in the heat of the fight, enabling him to stay focused on the current situation and notice everything. Because of this, he is able to instantly adjust to almost any turn-out and make insightful decisions, enabling him to stay many turns ahead of his foes.
Unlike many Uchiha who have lost someone important in life, Akira is shown to be anything but hateful. In anything, Akira would seem to embody the true spirit of a Shinobi, shown when he was fighting against Takeshi Hondou, and was willing to sacrifice himself with Takeshi so that his mission could be a success.
Nature Transformation Edit
As an Uchiha Clan member, Akira naturally excels in Fire Release nature transformation. He mastered his clan's right-of-passage technique, Fire Release: Great Fireball Technique at a young age, and was able to utilize his immense chakra reserves to continue to master several Fire-Release technique that require more chakra than someone of his age would appear to have. Aware that Fire Release are some of the strongest techniques available in any nature transformation, and well aware that people are aware of the benefits of dodging or extinguishing the flames of these techniques, Akira rarely tries a direct assault with them, preferring to utilize the flames in conjunction with weaponry (see Bukijutsu) and the surrounding area.
He is also proficient with Water Release, able to perform them without an already existing water source. Despite Water Release not being his natural affinity, Akira seems to specialize in Water Release techniques as much as his Fire Release, capable of creating a large wall of water to serve as a defence, as well as create a pressurized drill of water with great force.
Akira is a master at Shape Transformation, capable of manipulating his Fire Release techniques into shapes, such as spiral rings, drills, and can even influence his techniques post-activation to change their direction if they are still in some manner connected to his body.
His skill in Shape Transformation allowed Akira to master the complex ninjutsu, Rasengan, the highest level of shape transformation that does not require hand signs to be performed. The basis of the technique allows Akira to use a concentration of spinning chakra in the form of a sphere, which inflicts massive damage upon contact with a target. Akira has mastered the Rasengan to a degree that he can do it almost instantaneously, and has enough control that if he wants to hold back, he can easily forgoe the "shell", and bombard the opponent with a whirling torrent of pure chakra.
Like several ninja who utilize the Rasengan, Akira has created several variants, however, they do not comprise the majority of his arsenal and are rarely seen in battle.
Being one of the basic, yet never spoken about ninja-skills, Akira has been trained in Bukijutsu since a young age, and is skilled in the use of several types of weapons. Believing in being ludicrously prepared, Akira is capable of storing multiple additional weapons in scrolls he keeps in his pouch, and can summon them with ease to use against opponents.
To ensure he always has an easy access to weapons, Akira is capable of placing seals on wrists that allow him to summon a multitude of various weapons without the need for scrolls, as a way to always keep himself with an advantage.
Akira is well versed in the use of weapon such as kunai and shuriken. Despite being the weaker of the two, basic shuriken are the weapon Akira has the easiest access to, to the point of sealing a multitude into his wrist for easier access. With this method, he proves both his speed and throwing skill, able to launch multiple shuriken with great speed and accuracy, to the point where his hands are a blur that the eye cannot track. Like several Uchiha, he also seems to fabor the use of the Fūma Shuriken, and is capable of the use of techniques like Shadow Shuriken Technique in which he can hide one shuriken in the shadow of another.
Akira is capable of wielding kunai with as much proficiency as a self-taught sword expert, easily using his kunai to parry blows from even oversized katanas. Like with shuriken, Akira has great skill in both the speed and aiming of kunai, able to use methods to accurately hit targets that are located even in his own blindspots. Akira also uses a method of combining wire with the holes in the kunai tip, wrapping an opponent and manipulating the wire so that the kunai invert their positioning and cut into their opponent. He also stores a kunai up in his sleeve for easier access.
As a child, Akira practised kenjutsu, wielding a chokutō during his youth. He curently is capable of wielding several varities of swords with equal proficiency, and keeps them all sealed within his scrolls, summoning them when he needs to meet an opponent with kenjutsu. Akira's method of utilizing the sword could be seen as more akin to kendo (剣道, "Way of the Sword"), despite his skill being more self-taught than anything else.
Keeping his methods simple, Akira uses a firm, two-handed grip on his blade, finding it unwise to wield a sword one-handed, despite the freedom of movement. This is because it would deprive him of the power needed to make a truly lethal strike. However, his manner of attack variates from kendo here, as he sees completely forward movement as simply wasted motion, and will exploit a weak spot where he sees it, and is not above cutting an opponent down from the back.
Akira has enough skill to use a variety of different swords, one could even say his skill in kenjutsu rivals that of the Seven Swordsmen of the Mist, due to the varying amoiunt of blades he can use. Notably, he can cut down projectiles such as shuriken with ease, even when using an ordinary katana.
As a member of the Uchiha clan, Akira possesses the Sharingan, the clan's Kekkei Genkai. Akira is very proficient in the use of his Sharingan, from it's signature and most well known ability to copy nearly any jutsu it can see, as well as seeing through any deception, give hypnotic suggestions, perform genjutsu, and predict his opponent's movements or knock them out. The Sharingan can also gifts the user with enhanced perception, allowing Akira to easily take in everything he sees in his surroundings, and he is capable of analzying and predicting an opponent's movements to a degree. He reached the stage where he could even have his Sharingan activated for extended periods of time, with minimal drain on his chakra levels, however, he did not do this in the series prior to revealing his Sharingan to his students in battle.
Akira acquired his Sharingan at a young age, when he saw his own parents murdered, specifically through the use of Fire Release jutsu. He flew into a rage, unlocking his Sharingan, each eye with two tomoe, and butchered the mercernaries who killed his parents. Unlocking his Sharingan in such a way was incredibly befitting for the Sharingan's least-known name, the Kanshagan (感射眼, The Eye that Reflects Feelings). However, unlike many Uchiha who would go down a path of unreasonable insanity and hatred, Akira was able to keep hold of his sanity, and his Sharingan has not gained power from hatred.
Creation & Conception Edit
Originally, Akira was designed based off of the standard Uchiha users are bound to make. Miraculously survived the Uchiha Massacre, and was unbelievably broken for a character, possessing a powerful Sharingan and Mangekyō Sharingan. I never really planned much for him outside of "extremely powerful Uchiha that exists as an article for no reason at all", though I had made him extremely obsessed with safety, due to nearly being killed by Itachi. However, then I took a look at Raian Uchiha, and, in addition to bagging the profile image he used, I was inspired to make Akira much weaker than he was, due to seeing how powerful Raian was.
As such, I began to retool him, crafting him to be fit for an alternate universe where the Uchiha Clan is very much alive. Akira is meant to be similar in personality to Kakashi, though serious and the death of his parents affected his pesonality as he is, making Akira hellbent on keeping peace, order, and protecting those from grief. It was only after looking at what I'd done over again when I realized I made Akira into an Uchiha who defies the standard path of "Loss of Love = Path of Hatred" that the Uchiha Clan is so famous for following.
Akira's name itself was decided while I was reading Dance in the Vampire Bund, naming him after the main male protagonist, Akira Kaburagi Regendorf. The name means 暁 Daybreak, and while it's read as Akira, it can also be read as "Akatsuki", the name of the canon organization notable for containing two of the three surviving Uchiha.
- If Akira made an appearance in the anime, Darkrai thinks the best choices for both his seiyu and English voice actor would be Antonio Banderas.
- If one stretched it, Akira could be seen as a "Good Counterpart" to Obito Uchiha, due to both suffering tragic losses in childhood, but going down two different paths. While Obito eventually resolved to destroy the world in a sense, Akira became well respected Jōnon of Konohagakure, and is bent on protecting the innocent due to not wanting others to suffer losses as a young as he did.
- If Akira Uchiha had a page in a Naruto databook, it would say:
- Akira's hobbies are visiting his parents' grave, and going on patrols over the village.
- It is unknown who Akira wishes to fight.
- Akira's favorite foods are sashimi with white rice, and grilled negima yakitori. His least favorite is tonkatsu.
- Akira's completed missions are unknown.
- Akira's favorite words are "peace" (安らぎ yasuragi) and "order" (規律 kiritsu).
