Kimiko Yokinawa seemed like your typical everyday business woman, but
then that was one of her many disguises and facades. Everyone was surprised
when she told them she actually had infiltrated Legion Extreme to represent
the White Viper Ninja clan, a clan of ninjas so secretive they were
only a rumor a shadow. They had dealt not in assassination, but in infiltration,
and internal arts. They were being hunted down and killed by an unknown
enemy. The clan was dying and Kimiko was the sole Jonin (head ninja)
left. Legion Extreme agreed to help, but when they arrived back in Japan
it was already to late, the unknown enemy had wiped out the last haven
of safety. They investigated and found out that another ninja from the
same clan wanted to claim leadership, and had helped CR-Tech to locate
and destroy every White Viper cell. They eventually tracked down the
traitor and Kimiko battled the would be usurper, killing him with a
technique that was forbidden to be used. Now Kimiko had nowhere left
to go, so she joined Legion Extreme in hopes of maybe one day rebirthing
the White Viper Ninja clan.
Kimiko can focus her chi much like Vance but to only a limited degree.
Abilities she has displayed is vanishing before her foe’s eyes,
climbed walls with uncanny quickness, and moving with the swiftness
of a striking cobra. The tricks that Kimiko use include the “switching
places” when an enemy strikes at her she can place another object
in the path of the blow (providing that there is a nearby object, i.e.
a log, fire extinguisher, a trash can) when the enemy pauses to see
what they have hit, Kimiko strikes with a surprise attack from the back.
When Kimiko focuses her abilities she can hold her breath for three
times longer, tires out only half as quickly, and can perform acrobatic
stunts that seem nearly impossible, without defying gravity. One of
her favorite ninjitsu powers if the cloak of the shadow, with this power
she can shrug off heat, cold, and even physical damage. In this state
she is lighter than a feather, but also she has very little effective
mass to deal any kind of powerful attack. Kimiko also is a master of
ninjitsu, and the art of ninja weapons, her favored weapon is the ninjato,
the ninja short sword.
Kimiko equipment varies, but she usually carries about a dozen flash/smoke
bombs that she uses to conceal herself with. She also goes nowhere without
her carrying her concealed ninjato. Her arsenal contains an array of
throwing stars which serve different purposes. They can be used as weapons,
or to distract, some are even explosive. Concealed grappling hooks and
chains, blow darts, and devices of confusion make Kimiko an unpredictable
and formidable opponent.
