Ayumi Miharu ( アユミ, Miharu Ayumi) is a chunin-rank ninja of Konohagakure. She is a member of the Konoha Jurisdiction of the Miharu Clan, and a member of Team Shiro. Many of her elders viewed her as someone who would never get far in her ninja career for being so small and weak, and her low of amount of chakra with her underdeveloped chakra system, but as she grew, she proved that she could do anything she set her mind to, earning her the name of The Underdog Kunoichi (くノ一 の 負け犬, Makeinu no Kunoichi).


Background

Academy ayumimiharu

Ayumi during her academy days.

Akira Miharu, her father, was born in Konohagakure, but lived in Iwagakure for half of his life after his parents had divorced and he moved away with his father. It was until he met Toshiko, her mother, in the village while she was on a mission, that he decided to make back to the village with her. They had Setsuna her older sister not shortly after they got together. They had Ayumi ten years later after her, on a cold day on January 13th. Ayumi was a premature birth, and was really tiny. During the first few months of her life, no one knew if she would survive, as she constantly got sick. Despite this, even at in infancy, she was shown to never give up, and developmentally grew as quickly as another child despite being down a lot, and managed to even start crawling earlier than most babies, or at least her dad will sometimes claim. As she grew, they noticed that she seemed to not really...actually grow. She was still pretty short compared to others, and her hair never seemed to grow. Other than that, she was a healthy child. She showed interest in becoming a ninja ever since she could speak, after watching her dad, and much to their reluctance, they let her join Konoha academy along with the rest. She was academically intelligent, but she was physically behind many others. She was occasionally ridiculed as such, but she, showing her sarcasm that she would be best known for at a young age, got visibly irritated at the ridicule, but never let it stop her. Her hardest subjects seemed to involve chakra related justu, and it was soon figured out that her chakra system was underdeveloped for her age, and seemed to grow slowly. It worried many of her elders as to what she would be use of, since it was expected of girls in her clan to learn and master medical ninjustu. She knew this well too, but she then further surprised them, albeit rather negatively, if she could learn the ways the boys did in the clan, and take up mastering taijustu and the style of aikido, which was widely used in the clan. Her father, being the son of the leader of the clan, eventually coaxed Ishiko into letting Ayumi take this route. She began practicing and did so even after graduation.

Personality

Ayumi considers herself strictly independent individual, and hates it when people try to help her in any situation, and will often lash out at them for attempting. This is due to her being viewed as weak in her childhood and the fact she is smaller than others, plus often due to the fact she is a girl. She wants people to view her as capable of being capable of doing anything she puts her mind to, as much as even a guy can. She is often cynical and sarcastic, and often makes negative remarks to any situation she is in, which often detracts people from her. However, she does have a sense of humor on the occasion, if she finds your joke funny enough or likes you. If you can legitimately make her smile, she probably is close to you and trusts you. She is prone to nagging that sometimes people think of her as some stuck up perfectionist. This is slightly true, when it comes to herself at least, but for others, this behavior is due to the fact that she secretly does care, and wishes that anyone else does not fail in their expenditures.

If you are really close to Ayumi, one would probably realize that under her cynical appearance, is someone that is pretty low in her self-esteem, and tries to make it up with the strong appearance. Her clan often looks down upon her lack of ninjustu abilities, and the fact that she is more tomboyish than most. Her immediate family supports her, and so do her friends, so she focuses on that. As she grows, especially as she reaches being an adult she has better confidence than most as she doesn't let others try to mold her into what they want.

Appearance

Toddler ayumimiharu

Ayumi as a toddler.


Toddler/Academy:

She is seen in a little black dress with a red shirt underneath, and red shoes. She is often seen with bandages as well, since she frequently tries to train by herself when she's young. She is unfortunately more prone to accidents during her training, so she often falls and tumbles more than she is successful. She always takes her prized stuffed animal with her, that she endearingly calls "Fluff-sama." When Ayumi joins academy, she is teased about looking way less girly with her short hair, and many of the meaner girls would call her a "weird boy who wears dresses", even though she would explain she is a girl. So, she just eventually wears more neutral clothing to make them stop, with a long dark red shirt, and black shorts.

Part I:

In Part I, she is considered pretty masculine for a girlThis is due to the fact that she is physically still pretty underdeveloped. Whereas fellow female classmates have started to reach puberty, she has not. Her hair is often disheveled because it is short, and she does not brush it.  Her headband protector is red, and she wears it around her neck. She wears a red crop-top, and wears black spandex underneath it. She wears her white ribbon around her hips instead of her waist. Her pants are a darkish type of purple, but more close to black. 

Part II:

Reaching some slight femininity, her hair finally is past her shoulders. It is often left messy and curly, as she never really cares to brush it. Her ninja attire consists of a red collared jacket with black trimmings, a black tube-like top over it, dark purpleish red capris, black tabi, and the same red konoha headband.

Abilities

Taijustu

Due to her small chakra reserves due to having an underdeveloped chakra system,, she could not live up to her clan's expectations and learn medical ninjustu, or much other ninjustu at the time of her graduating academy. With her grandmother's permission, she instead took up taijustu and bojustu (the art of fighting with a wooden staff). Because of her clan's peaceful ideals, she was mostly taught in defensive manueuvers rather than offensive, and aikido. While she may not have much strength with her attacks, she makes up for it in speed.

Ayumi's main fighting style as she grows consists of using the person's body against them, due to her small stature and lean body, she does not provide much of a punch. It's influenced by aikido and other martial arts. She also uses pressure points to her advantage, and will try to weaken a stronger enemy by pressing them, to lessen the amount of damage they do, or even immobilize them if she's able. In more drastic measures she is also able to pinpoint a few vital chakra points, due to memorization, and immobilize them in the same sense that the Gentle Fist can. This was realized after it was taught by Hinata Hyuuga, who taught her the locations. As her chakra system grows (it's underdeveloped, explained in next fact), she incorporates ninjustu into her attacks, making them stronger, so she will go for the offense if necessary. However, she usually just immobilizes them, and does not kill her enemies, since it's against her personal belief. 

Ninjustu

Her use of ninjustu is small when she is younger, as her chakra at her disposal slowly grows. Her elemental chakra is fire, so she uses fire ninjustu as she grows older. She has also combined her bojustu with ninjustu techniques together. One known is that involves the help of her staff. It is forged to hold re-combustible powder in a metal ends at the sides, which in turn she heats up the ends (which are metal unlike the rest of the staff), and light it up and cause fire to spit out at the side, giving her the ability to suprise her opponents with fire attacks. However, the bo staff takes a long time to absorb enough heat, and this technique is rarely used.

Ayumi was never taught genjustu or medical ninjustu.

Fighting Style: Staff Barrage

First Appearance of Justu: Part I

Mastery: Easy-Medium

A simple taijustu move in reality, Ayumi uses her bo staff to catch the opponent off guard with quick successive hits with her bo staff to sensitive spots and various pressure points on the body to render the opponent winded. Success depends on Ayumi's speed and dexterity.


Fighting Style: Rain of A Thousand Staffs

First Appearance: Part II

Mastery: Medium


Ayumi has various amounts of staffs she uses depending on her mission other than her main red one, and they vary in various sizes (including sizes that compare to the third Hokage's own huge staff, but usually are only used for this particular justu.). This justu in particular summons them all and rains them down onto her enemies, incapacitating them.


Katon: Kajite no Justu

(ENG: Fire Release Technique: Flaming Hands)

First Appearance of Justu: Part II

Mastery: Medium


This particular ninjustu is actually a nin-taijustu movie, which involves a ninjustu technique to supplement any taijustu moves. This justu name is a wordplay on "kumite", which refers to forms of sparing used in Karate. Ayumi gathers chakra in her hands, and feet, and it the fire "ignites", giving her punches and kicks the ability to cause more damage. Side effects with this justu include eventual scarring and burns when there is prolonged use and not enough healing in-between uses.

Uses a minimal amount of chakra, but it depends on the length of use.


Katon: Honō Ya no Justu

(ENG: Fire Release: Flame Arrow Technique)

First Appearance of Justu: Part III of The Underdog Kunoichi

Type: Long Range

Mastery: Difficult

Gathering chakra in her hands, fire appears as a semi "physical" form of an arrow and bow. Giving the "string" enough tension by controlling the chakra enough, she can pull the arrow back, and it will act like a real bow and arrow set, and the arrow will be sent flying. Requires an accurate control of chakra and aim.


Katon: Bo Bakuhatsu no Justu

(ENG: Fire Release: Exploding Bo Staff)

Type: Medium Range

First Appearance of Justu: Part II

Mastery: Medium

Not so much an actual justu from the staff itself, this justu is a combination of the combined used of her bo staff and her main justu, Kajite no Justu. Flammable powder (which she usually obtains from her cousin, Kei, whom is extremely knowledgeable in sciences) is placed in the metal ends you see on her bo staff, and using the kajite no justu, she warms up the metal receivers, which heat up the ends, causing the result of fire to escape the side. Can burn opponents ganging up on the side of her, or use as a distraction mostly.

Intelligence

Despite being impulsive, Ayumi is intuitive and very smart. However, since she is quick to irritate, sometimes she be disheveled and flustered, ruining her train of thought. However, when able to think straight, she can be a quick problem solver in her group, and provide insight in a different perspective. She is able to plan her next movements and attacks as she fights, especially if she has to change her tactics. She uses the terrain around on the occasion to aid her fighting, since she is a taijustu user, showing her creativity and keen ability to observe small details around her.

Part I (Pre-Shippuden)

Part1ayumimiharu

Ayumi graduated at the age of 12, and placed, by the request of her grandmother, under Shiro Miharu, her uncle, as her sensei. She was placed with classmates Kenshin Matsume and Okamiki Mizutaro. The team started off a rocky relationship, being as Kenshin and Ayumi frequently argued due to clashing personalities.

Ayumi's clan is known for their obscure missions in which they help various yokai-related clans and villages with as regular clients, unlike non-miharu ninjas.  Her adventures with her team are covered in the fanfiction/doujinshi project "The Underdog Kunoichi."

Introduction Arc

This arc introduces Ayumi's team. Nothing especially important happens here, but lays out the basics of the clan that Ayumi belongs to, and talks about the teammates and characters.

Nobuko no Kumo Arc

This is the arc that is the team's first big main mission. Nobuko is a jurogumo yokai (spider yokai) that requests assistance because she has been hassled by locals and claims she cannot defend herself despite her size.In most of this arc you see that the team does not get along in the least. Eventually, it seems Nobuko attempts to eat Kenshin and Okamiki, trapping them in  a web,  and claims that she only needed them for food, since she proves that she's physically capable of taking care of herself. She also claims she ate Shiro, their sensei, as "proved" by his flak jacket laying on the ground. Ayumi then proceeds to take on Nobuko, and they fight. She outsmarts her and manages to get Kenshin and Okamiki out of the webbing, and they "defeat" Nobuko. Confused by her sudden easy defeat, Shiro comes out of hiding, and said initially a test to test their workings as a team, and they initially were failing, but managed to pass in the end, but by a minute margin, and they still had work to do. Nobuko also revealed she was a good friend of Shiro's.

Untitled Arc (Name not known yet)

Team Seven and Team Miharu are placed on a mission together after the Land of Waves Arc, and before The Chunin Exams. Still trying to figure out more information. Naruto and Ayumi end up being seperated from the rest of the two groups. Due to clashing personalities, they fight most of the time. However, they manage to become friends after the mission is complete.

Chunin Exam Arc/Setsuna Retreival Arc

Due to Ayumi's weak physical stature, and Okamiki's emotional instability, Shiro decided against entering the team into the chunin exam's, much to Kenshin's dismay.

During this arc, Ayumi rescues her sister, Setsuna Miharu, from her captor who has held her captive for the past several months.

Invasion of Konoha Arc

Ayumi, like everyone else, was caught under the genjustu. She is seen putting a flower on Hiruzen Sarutobi's grave.

Sasuke Retreival Arc

Ayumi takes no part in the retreival, but is seen watching the Retrieval Team leave the village. She wishes Naruto good luck.

*Will add more soon!*

Part II (Shippuden)

Arcs in between the the beginning arc and Pein Arc are still a work in progress.

Shinobi World War Arc

Due to the restriction on joining the shinobi war in her village's division, Ayumi rebelled with others her age and joined the ranks of her comrades. She formed a somewhat unofficial group and was the defunct leader of sorts. Members also included Kei, Bunko, and Eisuke ( note: need to confirm this with glueckskatze) and other of the young miharu members in Konoha. During this arc, she also meets the other Miharu divisions, and finally meets her grandfather, Satoru, who had seperated from her grandmotehr, Ishiko, and gets to know him.


Ayumi is part of the short-range battle division, or also known as the second division, and is alongside Hinata, Neji, and other various close-ranged combatants. During this time she is fighting off the white zetsu as ordered to the rest of the division, but is almost taken out by one before Naruto intercepts and defeats the Zetsu. She had not seen Naruto since she had entered the war, and seeing him in his nine-tails sage form impressed her, but somewhat discouraged her, because she had felt like she would never catch up to him. But nevertheless, she fought valiantly alongside her comrades. She was near Hinata and Naruto when Neji was killed in front of them, and tries to console Hinata slightly, but seeing her friend stand up and snap Naruto back to reality, made her proud of how much Hinata had grown.


Like the rest of the shinobi, Ayumi is caught in the Infinite Tsukiyomi and is thrown into what would have been perfect dream world. However, Ayumi's ended up having a slight twist.

Ayumi's dream started with her waking up in her bed, and she had already realized something was off. However, the thought is suddenly tossed away when she hears an unexpected knock on her bedroom door and a familiar voice.  Putting on regular clothes, she opens it to find Naruto standing there, and hands her a bouquet of flowers. Caught completely off guard, but nonetheless, takes the bouquet out of courtesy. She tries to ask what is going in, but he drags her down the stairs. 

She learns she is somehow the leader of the Miharu clan now, and Ishiko, her grandmother, was somehow gone from the picture.  All of her clansmen cheered for her, but Naruto continues pulling her towards the center of the village, and points to the hokage rock faces. She sees Naruto's face is on those, and she looks up at him with almost unending surprises and hugs him close as she congratulates him. He asks her out on a date, and even before she could flusteredly response, he is shown to take her on a date anyway. She continues to hang out with him for most of the day, showing a montage of various things, and her actually defeating some big enemy at some point to which Naruto congraluates her. They reach the training grounds, with evening beginning to set. Naruto makes a move on her, and presses her against the tree and tries to kiss her. This is where the climax of her dreams starts, as she pushes him back, saying that none of this is right, and she's fully aware again that she's in a dream, and she should be fighting in the war. Naruto seems to disregard it and has no idea what's she's talking about, and he says the feelings he has for her is real, and that is real. 

Ayumi shakes her head and says he still has feelings for Sakura, in which he says he "got over it". She then simply says to him, that she doesn't deserve him, and that she knows for a fact that she has not earned anything that has happened here yet. Naruto frowns at her and asks her why she won't let herself just be happy for once, and consider her own feelings. She frowns at him back and says she's only bothered to be happy if the real Naruto is happy, and that she herself has earned the dreams she's aiming for. Naruto then smiles as the world seems to dissapate around her, and as he pulls her into a hug, he tells her that he's always liked how selfless she has always been, and that when she's ready to let herself be happy, she will. But to not let it pass by her before it's too late. 

Dream Naruto then disappears, and since Ayumi did not break the genjustu, but somehow forced her mind just to rid herself of the dream, she is left in a cold dark void, by herself. She imagines her memories with Naruto as she sits by herself until the Infinite Tsukiyomi is broken, in which she finds Kenshin and Okamiki reaching out their hands to help her up. She learns that Neji is alive and well, and was somehow brought back to life despite his fatal injury. (In the TUK, Obito is mentioned to have using the Rinne Tensei to bring back Neji to repay Naruto)

She sees Naruto one last time, almost freaking out seeing Naruto's arm has well...been blown off. It's very brief but they talk before everyone starts to head back, but knowing she will be in deep trouble by Ishiko when she goes back, Satoru, her grandfather and leader of the Iwa division of the Miharu clan, offers her a place to lay low until everything blows over for awhile. She is upset she has to separate from her friends for awhile and would rather be home, but knows Satoru is right. She then takes to Iwagakure with the shinobi there, and thus leads into the Traveller's Arc, in which Ayumi will explore the ninja world for the next year, before she decides she must face Ishiko.

Trivia

  • Teaches herself to sew when she's 10 and makes her own clothing.
  • When Ayumi was born, she had underdeveloped ovaries and pancreas, and they did not finish fully forming until later in life. This caused Ayumi to have severe amenorrhea, meaning she has not had her first menstruation cycle before the age of 16. She actually does not hit puberty until she was 18. This explains her lack of breasts, severely small estrogen production and small stature she has until she reached adulthood. This is why she has a major growth spurt during the second timeskip (before the events of post-shippuden occur.) Other side effects to having her underdeveloped pancreas caused her to be frequently tired in battles and heal slowly. One can say she had similar symptoms to diabetes, but these symptoms disappeared once she hit puberty at 18.
  • Because of Ayumi learning pressure points during her taijustu training, and a peculiar but useful mistake she found when she was learning a ninjustu (basically, this justu "ignites" your hands so you cause more damage, but in Ayumi's case at first she could only output steam), she takes up massage therapy as a second job when she grows older.

Quotes

To say that anyone is above one another because of some stupid type of social status, is a mere fallacy, and I refuse to believe in it. We all end up in the cold hard ground the same at the end of this short life. Let's just learn to treat each other with some respect, ne?

We're all capable of anything we set our mind to. Our wishes are only stopped by our actions.

(To Naruto) Then promise me this, Naruto. Promise you'll treat me like your equal then. Never hold back your strength just because I'm a girl. Never hold anything back from me. I can take it. When we fight sometime...you must never hold back.

(To Naruto) I think you should give up on telling me to give up on you. Sounds familiar to you, doesn't it? A great ninja told me that once.

(To Naruto) I'll be right here. No matter what happens. I'll help you get Sasuke back, as long as I'm here to help you!

(To Hinata) Come on, let's sneak out for once! Your dad will never know, we'll go train, just you and me!

(To Ishiko) I'll never follow someone like you, grandmother. Your vision of peace is just a lie, you only care about yourself!

(To Setsuna) I'll be here for your sis, I'll always be here for you...I was too jealous to be closer to you...please forgive me.

(To Kenshin) Shut up, fruitcake...and stop flaunting yourself on the battlefield, idiot, it's a mission, not a stage show!!

(To Okamiki) Okamiki, don't be scared. Kenshin and I -- well mostly me probably-- believe in you.

(To Akira) I will be as strong as you dad, watch your back, because one of these days you'll be looking up to me!

More quotes to be added soon!
