MARI UCHIHA-UZUMAKIRank: B
Standing at 5'9" and 126 lbs, Mari is a model of aristocracy. Her constant battle with control of all facets of her life has her constantly putting on a facade of perfection and grace as a noblewoman. Every hair is always in place, worn in a hime cut and long in the back all the way to her lower back. Her strict daily routine ensures everthing is always in top shape. Despite being a kunoichi, she is no athlete, and so her figure remains quite average, with little muscle definition. Beneath the facade, she is still traditionally beautiful, albeit there are certainly more imperfections to her body than she would lead others to believe. She bares the Cursed Seal of Hell on her left breast.
Mari can usually be found wearing a variety of traditional women kimonos. On her feet she wears traditional straw sandals with socks. She would wear the headband of which ever village she is in at the time on her upper thigh, yet oddly enough has never had a headband for her home village, Merogakure, issued. When on missions or expecting a battle she would remain in her kimono, however she would add pieces of armor to crucial areas.
When she is in the comfort of her own home, or of someone else she trust, and not expecting guests, she is known to dress fat less formally, and in fact, quite immodestly. In such times she can usually be found in short kimonos, usually translucent, with little else other than a fundoshi beneath, as she wore while studying at the monastery she attended. She herself admits that she lacks the natural sense of modesty that most noblewoman possess.

On the surface, Mari gives it the impression of being aloof and stern. She is ana aristocrat, everything she does and say is done with grace, formality and modesty. To most, this can be interpreted as her being rude or cold. And for the most part, she is fine with playing the role of the "bitch", her actions and words usually laced with indifferent pleasantries.
In spite of her seemingly cold demeanor, Mari is in fact one of the most compassionate persons one may have the pleasure of meeting. While she actively chooses to maintain a stance and aura of indifference in almost everything she does, she's a gentle and kindhearted person. She would give you the clothes of her back, albeit with her pride, she would do so with her usual indifference. She is known to be quite motherly to those around her, and is a bit old fashion. She's always quick to tend to those around her, cooking, cleaning and do whatever is needed of her.
Discipline is of great significance to her in all aspecases. She absolutely refuses to lose control of her emotions. Her compassion and self comtrol most reflected in her unwavering pacifism and forgiveness. A person can beat her within an inch of her life and she wouldn't retaliate, even going as far as to apologize herself. She knows resentment is only giving a person control over her. She practices control in everything she does, from the facade she presents, to the way she fights and even in the people close to her. Every poison in her life fills some role. Sometimes willfully losing control is the best way to maintain it.
Still, in spite of her seeming kindness, her actions are ultimately an act of manipulation. For while she would like to think she's in control, she isn't. Her cold demeanor devised as a contingency against her own uncontrollable impulse to manipulate and control those around. Everthings she does, everything she says, is done with the ultimate goal of getting others beneath her thumb. For the pen is mightier than the sword.
Her manipulative nature however is a habit she ultimately wishes to break. A side of her personality cultivated by her mother's upbringing. She is in a perpetual battle of nature vs nurture. Between the woman she wants to be, and the woman she was raised to be. Her cold demeanor devised as a contingency against her own uncontrollable impulse to manipulate and control those around. That perhaps if people hate her enough they would never be subject to her schemes. Alas, even that contingency has been warped into a facade, a cultivated lie, that ultimately furthers her own objectives. Living in such constant struggle within herself, it is only natural she bares the Uchiha clans infamous curse of hatred. Hatred of her own mother and hatred of herself.
She is known to be quite quirky, most of her quirks are mostly just manipulative tricks to make her seem more . While she would never smoke herself, the very smell of cigarette smoke is known to have a strong hallucinogentic effect on her, so much so that she once bought all cabbages a merchant was selling cause he was smoking. She has a love for erotica in general, having bought every Icha Icha novel and went as far as to open a brothel. She is known to be an amazing cook, however she is known to ruin her cooking by trying to mix the most ridiculous things. She is known to be a bit old fashion, and while she doesn't think that's all a woman can/should be, she believes they are to be obedient wives, mothers, daughters and sisters. She is very religious, as evident by her attending church every Sunday and praying regularly.
History:" Mari "
A name that has been traced through six generations. Mari's mother, like her mother before her, and so forth, had been raised to carry on the legacy. All having been women who knew how to use their wiles to achieve their goals. Her mother had spent over thirty years playing politics with the best of them. Twenty-one marriages and thirty-six sons and daughters later, she had managed to become one of the most powerful women in the nations as the kage of the minor village, Merogakure, in Volcano Country. Although only a minor village, her mother's diplomatic skills made her one of the people with one of the greatest network of connections in the nations, even the country's daimyo was beneath her thumb." Nature vs. Nurture "
As her mother's heir, it would be under these conditions she would grow up. Her mother had countless children scattered a across the lands, however her sister and herself were the only ones lucky enough that she kept around. Her and her sister were always at their mother's side as she traveled the nations on "diplomatic" missions. Both were close to their mother, albeit, Mari in particular, in her naivety, was especially close to her, to the point that she didn't stop breastfeeding until she was nine. She wanted nothing more than to be just like her mother." Kushina Senju "
She was five when her mother had assigned her her own personal handmaiden, Kushina Senju, her name changed to Kushina just Kushina to hide her Senju roots. The girl had been a loyal servant and friend to Mari ever since, and later when she had developed the Cursed Seals she had branded her the Cursed Seal of the Queen." Kaeda Mikoto "
She was six when she had met her. Kaeda Mikoto. The young girl came from humble beginnings, the only child of small businessman, Hanzo Mikoto, and his wife, Aiko Mikoto, who was a housewife. She was the most popular, smartest and prettiest girl at the school Mari attended, and while she made it look easy, coming from no clan meant that she had to work twice as hard. Never in her life did Mari think she would meet someone she admired as she did her mother. The two had become bestfriends, albeit a rather one sided friendship that entailed Kaeda bossing Mari and the other kids around. One day Kaeda had insisted" I can see "
She was thirteen when she had seen a side of ger mother she didn't know existed. The entire experience was traumatic enough that it felt like a genjutsu cast over her entire life before then had been dispelled. Mari refused to be apart of her legacy, and so had taken the Uchiha name after her father." Sister of the Black "
Following your epiphany your mother saw fit to have you sent off to the monastery in Mountain Country. The monastery followed the traditional teachings of hagoromo that the ninja arts were meant to be used as a form of discipline. While your mother had prescribe you to lessons in politics, aristocracy, homemaking and fuinjutsu. However, she had managed to manipulate a few of the mentors into teaching her other things. From them you would learn how the basics of senjutsu so that you may develop your own specialized Cursed Seals. From the others you would learn genjutsu and medical jutsu. Fibally, in hopes of defeating your mother you had committed yourself to learning the forbidden sword style, One Draw." Lady Hinata "
She was thirteen when she had accompanied her mother to Sand Country where she had an important "meeting" with the daimyo. While her mother was handling business, Mari had met his daughter, Hinata. The two girls quickly grew to be friends; Hinata found Mari to be controlling, bossy and manipulative, but she didn't mind it. However, her breaking point would be the time Mari was trying to make her have some kids apologize for making fun of Hinata. Hinata would end up getting into a one sided fist fight with her, leaving Mari black and blue. That wouldn't be the end of their friendship however as Hinata convinced her father to let the Uzumaki family take her in, and so ever since she has always been at Mari's side." Chojin Akimichi "
When she was fourteen she would spend a lot of her days in Chusekigakure babysitting Chojin of the Akimichi clan. He was a delinquent little kid who jot even his parents couldn't control, except Mari could. When she had returned years later and he insisted on accompanying her on her travels, she had managed to convince his parents to leave him in her care. He's like a son to her, still she chooses to turn a bad eye to his bad habits, including his drinking, smoking and promiscuity. To him she would bless with the Cursed Seal of the Rook." Shikamari Nara "
She had first met Shikamari Nara when she was but a girl. He was like the father she never had, and they spent a lot of their days playing Shogi. A husband and father of two, he was having an affair with her mother. One of the villages best medicine nins in the village he expressed interest in fully analyze the Uzumaki unique bloodline, and for a time, her mother had agreed to be his test subject. Howevery, before he could complete his research her mother had ended things. Years later when Mari had returned and insisted on him accompanying her, he had agreed on the terms that she be his new subject. Information wise, there is no one who knows Mari as he does, knowing everything from exactly how strong she is to how many hairs there are on her body. She would brand him with the Cursed Seal of the Bishop." Ino "Oni" Yamanaka "
While on a diplomatic mission to Dust Country she had met Oni. A former elite ninja from " "gakure he fled the village and became a criminal due to him attempting to turn people into puppets. He was said to be such a good manipulator he could talk a fish into drowning. He had settled into a small village where he was seducing the young women and then turning themy into puppets. Mari had willingly allowed him to seduce her. When he had finally resolved to turn her into a puppet, she revealed it was all a ruse. He had come to find her quite admirable and she offered him a proposal. Both of them wanted to manipulate the other, and so her offer to let him someday have full control over her in exchange for his loyalty was one he couldn't refuse. He was given the Cursed Seal of the Vishop and has been an advisor and pschotherapist ever since." Gin "
She had recently turned twenty-one when she had been assigned her next diplomatic mission in Otogakure, Grass Country. The small village was a cesspool of crime, all of its former kages no less criminals than those they lead. The newest kages however had actually been making strides in ridden the village of crime. She would end up meeting Ginseng, the former kage, the man had lost and reclaim his office more times than any kage before him, and knowing of Mari's arrival would sought her out in hopes of staging a coupe d'état. For her own plethora of reasons, Mari would agree to help and tbe coup had been a success. The day she was to return, Gin had insisted Mari send her team back and she alone stay a few days longer. She found the request odd, but out of an act of trust for whom promised to be her greatest ally, she stayed. A week of festivities was held to celebrate Gin's inauguration, and when she was told that she as the main guests was expected to parade the streets naked out of tradition, while obviously a lie she had agreed of respect, alas her compliance did nothing to deter Gin and his men from gang raping her that night. After a week, she was allowed to leave, however unwilling to return empty handed, she refused to leave unless Gin allied with her. She would end up staying three months under such conditions, and while she should have, she refused to hate Gin or his men as that would be giving then control, however by then she had been certain she was pregnant, only to later learn she was completely infertile. She wrote letters to her family back home so as to avoid them coming to look for her and ruining things. After three months, Gin having managed to worsen the village's economy in such a short span, had agreed. The agreement was one-sided as she gave him 50% of her wealth and the promise that he may marry anyone within her family to join the line of succession for Merokage, but she saw it all worth it for her first alliance." Kamui "
After the traumatic incident, upon her return to Merogakure she would be informed she was arranged to be married. The news wasn't as shocking as who she was arranged to. Kamui was a pleasant boy the sisters use to play with as children; her sister always had a crush on him, but could never say it. Her sister had just recently lost her husband in war, and after her first child came to learn she couldn't bare more children, and so Mari devised a plan. Out of duty (and knowing that if he didn't marry soon one of her dozen or so stepfathers would arrange marriages for her which she would hate to deny out of respect for them), Mari didn't deny her mother's arranged marriage, and weeks later would walk the aisle, making her and Kamui married to the general public, however legally, her sister's name is on the marriage papers as his wife. Her sister has always wanted many children, and so, not wanting to break her heart, when her sister had proposed that Mari be Kamui's mistress and have his children, she agreed, despite knowing she too couldn't have children." Sousuke Uchiha "
She was sixteen when her mother had informed her that she had signed her up for full-time shinobi duty in Grass Country. She had enrolled enrolled at the academy and upon her graduation was assigned to a three man squad. Her sensei, Sousuke Uchiha, although her age, was one of the greatest prodigies in the villages history, and he did it all without ever having unlocked the infamous Sharingan. It didn't take long for her to start manipulating the other two members of her team, much to her senseis disproval. Although at the time she thought she was doing it simply out of bad habit, subconsciously she was ultimately planning to use the two members of her team as trauma pieces to unlock either her senseis or her own Sharingan. By time the infamous Chuunin Exams had rolled around, she had both her teammates complete and utterly wrapped apple her fingers. That year the exams had been a gruesome test, akin to that of the forest of death. She had made her teammates do most of the work, their will to please her driving them to completely disregard pain. By time she had found out just how much one of them was overexerting himself for her sake, it was to late as she watched him die, her other teammate dying later by taking a killer blow meant for her. She can't remember the rest of the exam after that, all she knows is that another team ended up surrendering to her. She would be promoted, however at what cost. Days later when she finally worked up the courage to tell Sousuke what had actually happen during the exam, using a technique to fully relay the incident, his Sharingan had briefly manifested. She saw a dark side of him that night that still makes her afraid of him to this day. He had beaten her within an inch of her life that night, raped her, before using his Sharingan hypnotise her into killing herself, watching with a smile as she stabbed herself twelve times before slitting her own throat. He had framed her death on a group of thugs and leat her for, however, guilt ridden, he had returned minutes later and brought her to the hospetal, where her life was barely saved. She forgave him, but he has never been able to forgive himself and swore to protect her ever since as she branded him with the Cursed Seal of the Knight." Numachigakure "
