Tsubaki Serizawa (椿 芹沢, "Camellia-Flower Celery-Marsh") is a kunoichi Jonin from the Land of Tao. She specializes in using Yin Release and Space–Time Ninjutsu to amplify her Taijutsu abilities and has developed her own unique, close-range, fighting style as a result. An aggressive and brutal brawler-type kunoichi, she typically prefers to get up close and personal with her opponents in order to end fights quickly and efficiently...
Born with an IQ of approximately 185, Tsubaki Serizawa is an incredibly intelligent young woman who holds herself in very high regard. However, her intellectual superiority has led her to develop quite the substantial ego, and she looks down on those that can't keep up with her mental prowess; very often does she talk down to others as if they were lesser beings. Not only that, but she seems to take enjoyment in the degradation of others.
Tsubaki is very critical of others whenever they make mistakes, but her pride won't allow her to admit her own faults: The act of apologizing is something she simply can't do. It's not even a consideration. Of course, those around her are turned off by her cynical and often rude comments and assumptions. They think she's a know-it-all and talk behind her back on a regular basis, something she's well-aware of.
Despite her high intelligence, Tsubaki isn't as level-headed and calm as one might think. In fact, she's usually quite the opposite, barely being able to contain her excitement. Simply put, Tsubaki is a sadist and therefore, she derives pleasure from inflicting pain on others. Whether by talking down to someone, defeating them in combat, physically, verbally, or emotionally abusing them, or even having them submit to her will, Tsubaki derives sexual pleasure from such things.
As a result of her sadistic tendencies, Tsubaki is typically the dominant lover when it comes to her intimate relationships. Being that she's straight, her submissive counterparts are typically men, however, she still enjoys making women suffer and beg before her. Not only does she take control of the situation, but she sees to it that her partners' lives are made a living hell, in the best kind of way of course.
Although she is the dominant one in her relationships and is a prominent sadist, Tsubaki is also a hard masochist and as a result, she derives sexual pleasure from being at the receiving end of pain, punishment, and torture. As odd as it may seen to many, she enjoys being hurt, being admonished, and being put in her place. As a result, she's always struggling with herself. She enjoys talking down to others, but also enjoys it when they talk back. She enjoys crushing her foes in battle, but also enjoys being taken prisoner. She feels the need to maintain her sense of superiority, but is aroused when it is stripped from her.
One of the most off-putting things about Tsubaki is her raging bloodlust. This is reflected in her horrifically brutal fighting style which revolves around her ripping her opponents' hearts out from their chests. Watching their eyes as she squeezes their heart right in front of them in their final moments sends her into a euphoric frenzy, a near indescribable ecstasy that makes her just want to fall to her knees and relieve the built up tension in-between her legs.
With regards to the things she likes to do, Tsubaki obviously is a fan of sadomasochist practices and indulges in them frequently, but she also enjoys reading (particularly history and erotica) as well as shopping for punk/goth fashion (she likes both). She likes to live life on edge and is always up for a thrill. Horror movies, rock/metal concerts, and training are also things she does during her free time.
In contrast, the things Tsubaki doesn't like includes annoying little brats, people less intelligent her, people more intelligent than her, world peace, and the sun (she hates it when her skin gets tanned). Additionally, she doesn't like it when men, or anyone else for that matter, think she's weak. Those people desperately need to be taught a lesson and must be put in their place.
It's no wonder that Tsubaki is notorious for her high level of sexual activity; she's a attractive woman, at least physically speaking. At 29 years old, she around average height at 162.75 cm (5'4") tall and she weighs around 46.26 kg (102 lbs.), which is fairly light. Officially her BMI (Body Mass Index) is 17.5, thereby classifying her as "underweight." Considering her taijutsu-based fighting style, as well as her dexterous activities performed behind closed doors, it's no wonder that she is so light, skinny, and fit. Her arms, legs, and stomach are all tight and smooth; she's in excellent physical condition.
Tsubaki, like many others that identify themselves with the goth subculture, has take the necessary steps to avoid tanning her skin. Bearing a preference to work at night, she also doesn't get as much sunlight as most people, thus lightning her natural skin tone. As a result, Tsubaki has clean and pure, light-colored skin. However, because of her revealing outfit, any tanning she does receive tends to leave annoying marks all across her body.
In contrast to her pale skin, Tsubaki typically wears black eyeliner and mascara, to accentuate her eyes, which are a beautiful natural burgundy color. They are sharp and sadistic looking, yet seemingly relaxed in an off-putting sort of way. She usually looks like she's either in a state of arousal or bloodlust, and most people feel uncomfortable by her confident eyes. They reflect her ego and her desire to seduce, dominate, and punish others.
Alongside her usual makeup, Tsubaki also touches up her plush lips by adding a little bit of dark red or burgundy lipstick. Nothing too much or too excessive, but just enough to add that delightful color contrast
With regards to Tsubaki's hair, she at first started out with it at shoulder-length, but has since let her long indigo-colored strands grow all the way down to her miniskirt. She takes good care of her hair, so that it stays strong and healthy. As a result, it's shiny, silky smooth, and smells faintly of honey and lavender as an added bonus. Now, aside from head-hair, Tsubaki has actually gone through great lengths to remove herself of all unwanted hair on her body. Due to the recent advances in modern science, Tsubaki has been able to completely and permanently remove all of her unwanted hair through the use of laser hair removal technology.
Out of all the things Tsubaki could choose
- Bra top, black
- Accessories, Latex glove protect from blood, choker, arm/wrist bands, mask.
- Body Harness made of synthetic leather, black, metal rivets.
- Skirt, Slits, Stitches, black, rumored to not wear undr
- Feet/Legs, Fishnets, 4 inch heels, black
- Reasons for outfit
- It can distract opponents.
- She has another job beside that of a shinobi.
- Because it's what she wants to wear, self-expression.
With regards to her abilities as a kunoichi, Tsubaki is a close-range brawler-type and thus utilizes taijutsu to damage her enemies, cleverly supplementing her abilities with space-time Yin Release techniques that allow her to create and bypass barriers via portals. She's also possesses some skill in genjutsu, which she mostly uses to confuse her opponents.
Overall, Tsubaki's physical capabilities are excellent and she's considered to be a very proficient taijutsu user. While her strength and stamina are only average, she possesses above-average speed and taijutsu. Her style of fighting greatly resembles kickboxing, therefore she incorporates plenty of kicks into her barrage of punches and jabs.
Tsubaki's signature taijutsu move, the Heart Ripping Technique is a brutal physical ability that rips her opponents' hearts out of their bodies. While she is capable of simply plunging her fist into her opponent's chest, Tsubaki actually supplements this technique with her iconic Yin Release: Void Fist, allowing her to snatch her target's heart much easier. It's is for this reason that she is often personified as a inhumane monster, being dubbed the "Heartless Devil."
Another one of Tsubaki's iconic taijutsu feats, Choke Slam is used to grab her target by their throat, choking them, before slamming them into the ground with great enough force to cause significant trauma to the head.
An evasive grappling technique, Early Sacrifice allows Tsubaki to jump over her opponent by balancing on their shoulder, effectively enabling her to dodge an oncoming attack. Immediately afterwards, she counterattacks by landing and, still grabbing her opponent's shoulder, throws her opponents over herself so that they land on the ground. It's a quick and nimble technique requiring precise timing to execute, but when done correctly, it serves as a good way to end a fight or to catch an opponent off-guard.
When using Medullary Cut, Tsubaki kicks her opponent in the side of their body, hooking them with her foot before spinning around with her other foot and sending her opponent flying in a spinning-like motion. It's very effective against lighter opponents, but larger and heavier opponents are typically able to resist the kick and make a successful counterattack. However, when properly executed, Tsubaki can disorient her opponents and leave them open for a falling axe kick to the stomach, as they are on the ground and wide open for attack.
Finally, Tsubaki's Serizawa Sweep is a spinning low kick delivered from behind, throwing her target off balance. Because of her kick's speed and how it's delivered, her targets are unlikely to be able to defend against it. Because it involves turning her back to her opponent for a brief period of time, a fast or skilled opponent may be able to dodge or counterattack, however, those not well-versed in taijutsu typically will get caught by this technique.
Yin Release: Space-Time Ninjutsu
Using Yin Release, Tsubaki can use space-time ninjutsu by manifesting portals and pockets of dimensional space with the power of her mind. These ninjutsu are quite often supplementary in nature and are typically used to boost her taijutsu combat effectiveness, however, they sometimes have more offensive or defensive capabilities.
Used in conjunction with Tsubaki's Heart Ripping Technique, her Yin Release: Void Fist nintaijutsu technique allows her to create a space-time portal wherever her fist touches, allowing her to slip her arm into her opponent's chest, bypass the ribs and tissue, and simply pull out their heart with no resistance or friction, killing them almost instantly. It's because of this technique that she is so powerful and feared amongst shinobi; it forms the core of her fighting style: Stealing hearts.
Another supplementary technique, Yin Release: Warehouse Dimension allows Tsubaki to store a large summoning scroll's worth of volume within a pocket dimension via a portal that she can activate in the center of her chest. She mostly uses this technique to store food, water, clothes, rope, and traveling supplies, but also uses it to store secret missives, important documents, scrolls, and even weapons such as shuriken. If used offensively, she can even open the portal and shoot out a barrage of shuriken projectiles at her target. Sometimes she likes to shoot out kunai with Flash Bombs attached to them.
Tsubaki's most defensive technique in her entire arsenal, her Yin Release: Void Barrier technique manifests a 3 meter wide void bubble that protects whoever is inside of it, the caster being a the center of the bubble. As a bubble of it's own space and time, the dome is nearly impervious to all forms of elemental ninjutsu and is completely invulnerable to sound-based ninjutsu; sound cannot pass through the dome in either direction. Advanced elemental natures and blunt force damage can crack or shatter the dome, potentially breaking it into fragments in a similar manner to glass or ice breaking. Because the dome is it's own pocket of time and space, using ninjutsu such as the Hiding in Surface Technique doesn't allow one to go under the bubble and immerge from within the dome. Likewise, one cannot leave the dome using this type of jutsu either. Additionally, unless the barrier is broken, individuals outside the dome cannot enter it and individuals inside the dome cannot exit. As a result, it may work both as a shield or a prison depending on the user's needs. Of course, the user can return the barrier to its space-time at any given point, should they so choose to. The Yin Release: Wall Phase technique allows one to phase both in and out of this barrier.
The last space-time ninjutsu that Tsubaki uses is her Yin Release: Wall Phase technique, which is a technique that allows her to touch a surface and open up a space-time pocket dimension that she can slip into in order to walk through an object and emerge from the other side. Only the user of this technique can move through the desired obstruction and the user themselves does not become non-tangible. This technique is excellent for allowing Tsubaki to infiltrate into compounds and buildings or to phase right through walls and even barriers. She also uses this technique to phase in and out of her Yin Release: Void Barrier.
Yin Release: Genjutsu
Although she primarily uses Yin Release to create space-time dimensions, Tsubaki is still quite adept at genjutsu and thus, has several that she uses from time to time. Mostly, these genjutsu techniques are meant to distract or confuse her opponents, allowing her to launch a surprise attack or to escape from an otherwise tricky situation.
One of Tsubaki's most used genjutsu, the Mist Servant Technique serves as her own version of the basic Clone Technique. Although they are slow, for each attack these intangible clones sustain, they individually multiply. This allows Tsubaki to overwhelm, confuse, and tire out her opponents while she prepares to silently snatch their heart.
Another one of Tsubaki's favorite genjutsu, Flower Petal Escape allows her to dissolve her body into a storm of burgundy petunia flower petals. She can use this technique to escape from most genjutsu if she's been trapped in one. She can also cause her opponent to simply see a hallucination of her dissolving into these petals when in actuality, she's still present and most likely following through with an attack. She can also swarm her opponent with these petals, completely covering them in them, potentially blinding them, immobilizing them, or leading them to believe that they are being suffocated upon which they may pass out if they fail to break the genjutsu.
As an incredibly sadistic woman who likes to demoralize and crush her adversaries, Tsubaki is a huge fan of the Demonic Illusion: Hell Viewing Technique, which forces her targets to see a vision of their greatest fear. It can work on even the strongest opponents, if even only for a moment, but often that fraction of a second is enough to halt them in their tracks long enough for Tsubaki to land a decisive blow.
When Tsubaki uses her Sly Mind Affect Technique, she does it partially to confuse her victims and partially to torment them. It forces the target to walk in circles when they think they've been walking to their destination. It's a handy technique to fool individuals of subpar intellect or combat experience and is quite useful when stalling for time. Wearing out her opponents with technique makes it that much easier to steal their heart.
Despite her skill in taijutsu and Yin Release, Tsubaki's greatest asset is her high intellect. She's so smart to the point where she looks down on those who she deems to be less intelligent (almost everyone) and it's her genius that had built up her monstrous ego. She's more creative than her opponents, and can mentally outmaneuver most of them with relative ease. Her IQ is approximated to be around 185. She's a great strategist and tactician, and is a fierce opponent when playing phycological "games" in the heat of battle. She knows how to get into her opponent's head; she knows the perfect thing to say. However, her ego sometimes prevents her from taking the best course of action, as she's such a sadistic fighter, that having fun and inflicting pain is much more important to her than efficiency,
As one of the most basic ninjutsu that shinobi can perform, Tsubaki is very much capable of performing the Transformation Technique to change her appearance into that of another person or object. She doesn't use this technique too often, because of her skills in genjutsu, however, this technique has come in handy in one or more occasions.
Another technique that Tsubaki uses, the Body Replacement Technique, has saved her life on more than a dozen accounts. After weaving the required handsigns, she swaps her body out with another object the instant the next attack hits her. A sign of her intellect, she prefers to swap herself out with a whirlwind of burgundy petunia petals. This not only confuses her opponent, but the petals don't actually stop the incoming attack's momentum and thus, a taijutsu attack may overextend and leave the attacker open to Tsubaki's counterattack.
Because of Tsubaki's sadomasochist tendencies, she regularly engages in recreational activities that involve being tied up and typing up others. Though she usually is the one doing the tying, there have been plenty of instances where she's been on the receiving end of punishment. Whether on a mission and having been captured, or allowing a lover to take control, Tsubaki has had tons of experience with trying to escape her bindings. As a result, she is considered an expert in the Rope Escape Technique; she knows all the ins and outs of every knot and tie in the book.
With such an extensive knowledge of rope ties, Tsubaki is also an expert of the binding arts, being able to keep most people properly tied up with little chance of escape. These skills come in handy when taking prisoners, in the rare instance that she does take prisoners...

"To me, you're nothing but a maggot to be stepped on: a speck of dust on the sole of my heel. Your very presence is insulting—who said you had permission to even look at me? Talking to you feels like getting kicked in the ovaries. You're annoying, insufferable and completely incompetent. It's infuriating how I have to do everything myself: I'd be better off working at a brothel for the rest of my life than being paired up with you!"
"Do you like what you see? I'm I someone—no—something that you want? Do you want to hold me? Touch me? Take me? Am I simply an object in your eyes, sir? Do I exist to satisfy your needs? Will you take what you want regardless of my answer, my willingness to comply? Will you pin me down and shackle my wrists and ankles, stripping away all the freedom I had been wrongfully allowed to enjoy? Will you mold me and break me into serving you and only you, just as you would break in a new pair of boots or shape a stone into a shiv? Well sir, guess what? You might be able to take my body, my pride, my spirit, my defiance, my freedom, or even my life, but of all the things that you could ever possibly hope to take, you will never be able to take my heart."
