Gōketsu Keiko (formerly Mori Keiko) is a missing-nin from Mist, who holds a summoning contract from the Pangolin clan.

Appearance Edit

Black hair in a short bob, dark eyes, slim, waifish build. Slightly above average height for a 14-year-old. Tends towards fixed stares. Low affect.

History Edit

[Her time amongst Mori, maybe mention family]

Had a plush kitten as a child- Mewramasa.

Said kitten got disemboweled after a failed duel with another Mori girl.[1]

Personality Edit

[some quote about the horrors of reality]

Dry wit, quite sarcastic. Very verbose.

Brittle confidence and extremely low feeling of self-worth.

Considers her value nothing more than that of a tool, although that view may swiftly change. [with current events, perhaps even soon]

Often resorts to intimidation as a defense mechanisms against others. [tournament, some interactions with Hazou?]

Has a massive phobia of touch, outside of combat situations. This doesn't apply to Ami, as she trusts her unconditionally.[had a monologue about that]

Recently, she felt her agency ignored, everyone making decisions on her matter without consulting her.[2]

Relationships Edit

Mori Ami Edit

Loves her deeply and unconditionally. Practically worships her, and would give her anything she asks for, even after severing ties.

They grew up together, and relied on each other for continued mental stability.

Was always unfavorably compared to her, growing up.

Was shocked after Ami pushed her away. Finds thoughts about her painful.

Hazou Edit

Bonded over shared difficulty of dealing with people, as well as dealing with it using flowcharts and lists.[very beginning of the quest had that conversation]

Made CCnJ (Clear Communication no Jutsu) technique together- eliminating difficulty with nonverbal communication by incorporating it into verbal message.

While Hazou thinks this technique implies/requires great trust, Keiko doesn't think so [there was a conversation that mentioned it, before event? or not...]

[Stuff will change quickly, so a lot of it will be malleable]

Tenten Edit

They are in a deep, romantic relationship. Their bond is strong, yet incredibly delicate. While not many words

Said relationship is kept largely a secret[3], due to general homophobic atmosphere[4], and backlash it could cause.

They sometimes train together, both having a ranged weaponry specialty. She finds spending time with Tenten equally restful as spending it alone.[5]

Kagome Edit

She is aware that Kagome's social competence is barely above her own.[6]

Mari Edit

Was infatuated with her, which caused a great deal of trouble for the team. [end of Hot Springs disaster and further]

Suspected Mari's compliciance with their fake suicide mission.[5] While not entirely forgiving, she still feels she owes Mari sensei her life, and trusts and loves her all the same.

Akane Edit

General dislike towards her, although not mutual.

Still considers her a part of the team.

Noburi Edit

Had one-sided crush on her, which she was made aware of, and turned him down.

They have good relations as siblings.

While there's less mutual understanding, unlike with Hazou, he makes up for it with brotherly care and genuine promise to beat up those who try to cause her grief.[6]

Jiraiya Edit

While far from being a full family, or close as original Team Uplift are, she still considers him family.

He did promise her a juvenile chakra pony for birthday.[7]

Hanabi Edit

Hanabi seeked out Keiko, wishing to learn the ways of the killing glare.[8]

Now she seeks a tutor in Neiji, wishing to impress Keiko upon her return from the exams.[9]
