—I am the former head of the shaman-sect of the Uzumaki! Challenge me if you dare!
Genjin Uzumaki (源氏渦巻,Uzumaki Genjin) is a member of the infamous Uzumaki clan. He's the former head of the shaman sect of the Uzumaki clan and cousin and best friend to the true head of the Uzumaki clan, Keigai Uzumaki.
In his youth, he was a relatively tall and thin man who has glaucous-coloured eyes and vanilla-coloured hair. He also wears glasses and wears long, white robes which extend right down to his feet. It does not however conceal his chest area, which he covers with a blue breastplate and wears a black kimono underneath. Seijin wears a strange necklace with exotically-coloured feathers attached to it for reasons unknown. His attire has often led to the villagers referring to him as 'smartly-dressed'. He wears rangs of paper on his fingers, which beneath them are coils of thread, used when he chooses to control people with them or for grabbing physical objects from a distance.
As an elderly man, he now wears shamanic robes and wears the armor of the Uzumaki clan on top of that. He wears a mask in the shape of a fox when he contacts spirits and does exorcisms.
Genjin is calm, collected, and highly perceptive. He appears to be respectful of those around him as he doesn't like freely speaking about others' pasts; as a result the other villagers have perceived him to be a 'very nice person'. He is a shrewd person, and is not a man who would do something without reason. He is very knowledgeable of the ninja world, as well as the horrors which torment victims of wars and of the darkness which haunts the consciousness of man. He's a sagely master of the art of origami and thus Paper Ninjutsu that he creates. He's also a Onmyoji-class shaman and thus is able to master all forms of shaman spells.
Powers & AbilitiesEdit
Due to his Onmyōji skills, he's able to summon various shikigami spirits to do his bidding varying from foot-soilders to Gods, albeit it'll cost more chakra to summon dependeing on what wants to summon. He'll only uses this as means of getting what he desires done.
Genjin has shown a natural talent for origami, even developing it into his main ninjutsu. He has created a unique transformation technique called Dance of the Shikigami, which can turn his entire body and clothing into thousands of sheets of paper, which he can control at will and form into any shape or colour. It's been said that the akatsuki member Konan discovered this technique in a scroll in the ruins of the old Uzushiogakure. To travel long distances, he can fold them into butterflies or planes for powered flight, and to attack, he hardens the sheets to the point when it is as hard as steel and folds them into arrows, spears, and shuriken. He can also restrain opponents by blanketing them in sheets, thus restricting their movement and asphyxiating them. The papers can also form large wings for further weaponry, though he is capable of hovering without them. The power of the paper attacks are capable of overpowering a fire attack. Genjin is susceptible to oil-based attacks, which stick to him and keep his paper from unfolding and possibly because his paper is still as light as normal paper and only more durable the oil is probably heavier and restricts the papers movements. However he is not hampered to the same extent by water. Genjin can make Paper Clones that he could use to fight in his place. He can hide explosive tags in them so that they would explode, and catch an enemy off guard. One of Genjin's most powerful techniques is the Paper Person of God Technique, which can split a large lake. The technique contains six hundred billion explosive tags that would explode for a full ten minutes. Genjin is able to produce and fold enough paper to mimic environmental surroundings, allowing him and those of his choosing to hide in places one normally wouldn't be able to.
Unlike common ninjutsu, Shikigami is performed though paper mediums known as "rei". There are generally two types of rei: shiki rei and summoning rei. Rei are created by writing special characters/glyphs onto paper. Higher level reis typically have more characters of greater complexity. People with ugly calligraphy or a clouded mind tend to fail in making reis. A rei can only be used by the person who created (wrote) it. A shikifuda, when used, turns into a shikigami to do the user's bidding. Low level shikigamis usually look like origami (folded paper), although high level shikigamis may have a variety of appearances. Many types of shikigami exist. Some are capable of attacking, while some are used as barriers to block attacks. Some are used to rely information across great distances, and some can be used for spying. Depending on the strength of the user, the number of shikigami they can command at once, as well as the abilities of the shikigami, can vary greatly.
With his years of experience as a teacher and warrior, along with being the former leader of the Uzumaki-shaman sect, Genjin is a very intelligent man. He is capable of quickly adjusting to new developments and making quick decisions accordingly. He has great tactical acumen, as shown from his preparations for the battle against the Uchiha clan. As noted by Madara Uchiha, Genjin is very cunning, setting up a trap to kill him while Madara was focused on the shikigami foot soilders. He is shown to be also a very perceptive man, demonstrated from how easily he could tell that Jin had something on his mind concerning Masanori. His skill at battle tactics is undeniable, be it to relatively small or large number of threats.
