Thousand Ways (to break you)
(SIOC intel team - Akimichi Iori, Nara Shizuka, Inuzuka Kaho and Chamaru)
Cookie for whoever remembers these guys from my other accounts.
First things first, no one really cares about names of their parents, siblings or friends just yet, so we’ll start talking plot.
They were childhood friends, Iori and Shizuka knew each other from clan meetings and quickly realized that they had a lot more in common than clan relations. Kaho was pullet into their orbit in the Academy when she overheard them discussing things people of the ninja world would have little clue about.
Friendship is quick to form, Iori is a laid-back snacker who has a quote for every occasion, Shizuka is the calm and orderly one with a plan for every occasion and Kaho has enough morbid humour to offset both her’s and Chamaru’s cute looks.
Their teamwork is noticed by the Academy teachers and relevant parties informed.
This probably results in some sneaky testing that the girls might or might not catch on to. Graduating a year or two before Team Gai, three girls and a dog end up with Senkawa Rie for a sensei.
Now, Rie has seen their grades, teachers comments and already has Plans. Their skills were already nothing to sneeze at, for the given value of twelve year old ninja, but she starts bringing them up to speed on some specialized skills.
And Rie isn’t shy about sharing her plans. They are to become and intelligence team, only time would show what kind of an intel team they would become.
Intelligence Gathering, Counter Intelligence, Espionage, Infiltration or Sabotage, but Rie has high hopes to make them as versatile as possible.She manages that and by the time canon rolls around and Naruto steals the Forbidden Scroll, they’ve already made their place in the complicated Konoha Intelligence network, becoming a highly cohesive Chuunin team whom Ibiki likes to ‘Loan’ for various purposes.
Their favourite remains Counter Intelligence, due to their proficiency with putting on personas and masks.
