The standard perception of Kota is a shy, innocent child. Which is partly true. Although he's no child, the rest is the most fitting description one would give of him. The boy barely socializes and has about two people in his social circle. His mother, Noona and her husband. Is' actually depressing to say the least. Either way, Kota is too shy to talk to strangers, however when he does, he is found to be quite appeasing, often charming them despite the lack of initiation.
Kota's slight experience of the outside world has led him to believe that there is little to no evil. However, we all know that the shinobi world consists of plenty filth and corruption. Kota's constant confinement has created an entirely different world for the boy. A naive one. Of course, at the smallest of incidents, Kota can break out in tears. Having not experienced much dismay, the slightest of trouble can spark anxiety in the boy and prompt him to hide.
The past of Kota's changes drastically in a matter of a few months and because the boy has little to no recollection of those periods, he doesn't understand the horror of it all. To speak of Kota's past, one would have to mention the first and foremost incidents that occurred in Yukigakure, starting from a long time ago. When the first members of a certain clan, called Kiryu, came to the Land of Snow, nobody expected the amount of power they would reign in. From the great abilities they came with to the immense power and greed they ended up with, a storm was to be created in the previously peaceful village. People despised them, held a grudge against them but most importantly feared them. With the strong genjutsu they possessed, nobody had the courage to step up to them. Or so it was assumed.
One day, all authority was stripped away from the kage as it was decided by an opposing clan leader to erase the bloodline. The massacre was immense, all clan members meeting their miserable fate; death. And so, clan leader Reiga was to take control. You might be asking, where was Kota through all of this? Well, hiding of course.
He was only five when he was forced to watch as his father rushingly carried him away from a burning home after losing sight of Kota's mother. Through fire and several torn down buildings, Kota would never understand why the people of the village were screaming in agony. After all, his face had been stuffed into the shoulder of his parent through the entire trip. A trip that had ended at a small cottage in the forest. With last, reassuring words, the boy's father had turned to go look for his wife, leaving Kota alone in fear. The boy had stayed for a long while. He had waited and waited but his father never returned as promised. Nobody came back for him. In fact, it felt like an eternity before the commotion quietened down and after what felt like an eternity someone had found him. It wasn't his father. Neither was it his mother, but it was definitely a woman.
In the following years, Kota ended up being adopted by a quite wealthy, young woman. The woman called Noona, unable to have children of her own in contrast to her wishes of at least one child, had found Kota to be too cute to leave alone. After finding out he was a member of the Kiryu clan, she had practically begged Reiga to keep him. Of course, he had refused profusely in the beginning, arguing about the risk of having another Kiryu clan member grow up and take control but with a little bit of insisting and bargaining, the woman was able to both adopt the boy as well as save him from the same demise of his clan members. Ironically enough, she was of the same clan that had murdered Kota's, but he was to not find out about that and neither was the village. In fact, she had issued that he never finds out about his bloodline either, so his powers would never manifest, something both Reiga and the woman had concluded together.
And so Kota grew up in a wealthy and pleasant household with his prosperous family. Because of reasons he did not comprehend, Kota was prohibited from exiting the residence. He was to play inside the large house or spend a short amount of time in the garden, prompting him to spend more time with his new mother. Because of this, not only did the relationship with Noona stretch but he also became quite coy and modest, shying away from strangers, kids his age and most importantly the world.
There came a time when Noona's husband urged his wife to teach Kota some kind of ninjutsu. Unlike the boy, they understood the dangers of the shinobi world and wanted no threat to reach their one and only child. So, Noona hired the best blacksmith in the village to forge a blade for the boy. At first, it was meant to be a sword. However, Noona noticed Kota's distate in the large and heavy weapon so she opted to make it smaller, more fitting. This bladewould be Kota's primary weapon in combat, essentially protecting him from danger.
Okay, now you might ask how he obtained his powers and all that. We're coming to it!
Again, it happened on one day, after Kota's training session. Noona had watched as Kota's mentor taught him different methods of swinging the blade and eventually left them after the session was finished. As they had lingered around the forest a little longer than intended, a white tiger had appeared out of the trees and ambushed the two. The woman, having no experience in combat, had frozen in shock after pushing Kota out of the way. In the few moments that Kota watched the tiger dive towards his mother, the terror and fear of losing his mother had struck him hard. With wide eyes, Noona watched as he had somehow managed to halt the animal before forcing it to run away in fear. Glancing at Kota's face, her heart had dropped at the sight of his red kekkei genkai.
