OOC: I'm assuming it's open, Tomo, since you didn't point to anything otherwise. ;3
IC: Spiky brown hair, uncommonly emotionless brown eyes. Strong, leanly-muscled, lithe figure. His body structure and coloration could belong to anyone, but to someone who had seen more than one of his clan, it could mark the boy as a Hofushi.
His white leather jacket was open to reveal the black muscle-shirt and angled leather strap beneath. His legs were covered by black pants, his feet by black boots. On his right hip rested a sheathed dagger, but this was not what could make him stand out to any in Yuki. On his back he carried a large quiver and a long bow, an archer. Yuki's newest Archer of Fire.
And beside him padded a black wolf who's shoulder was roughly the height of the six-foot boy's waist.
Kaki's eyes were carefully guarded as he walked through the halls towards the Emperor's office... or at least, he thought this was the right way... the castle's hallways were like a maze, and this was his first time here. It would be his first time meeting the man that led this arctic country.
Tomoushii-dono, an old friend of Raika-dono... or, at least that's what she had said when she mentioned him on one of her story-telling days in Yamaokugakure no Sato, clan village of the Hofushi.
...she wouldn't be telling those stories again. Ever.
She wouldn't be returning to Yamaoku.
Kaki clenched his jaw, his hands slipping into his pockets. He relaxed ever so slightly when Yami, his nin-wolf, gently nudged him in the hip.
The news had reached Nadare first, oddly enough. And then someone had to be picked to report the news to the Emperor... Kaki had been the first to volunteer. And had received enough of a talk from Mizu-chan to calm him down, for the most part.
The icy fields the human and wolf had traversed had done the rest.
But his thoughts consumed the usually cheerful teen, and it was only by Yami catching his pant leg in his fangs that kept the archer from bumping into the man he was looking for and ending up with a face full of... hat. Tomoushii-dono was shorter than he imagined.
Quickly Kaki took a step back and put his fist in an open palm, the shinobi salute, bowing a bit. "Emperor... I am Kaki Hofushi, Fire Archer, and this is my nin-wolf, Yamiyo."
The nin-wolf nodded to Tomo as Kaki paused.
He had to keep focused. Calm. Like water? He was fire, water was Mizu-chan's thing. Kaki rose back to his full height, still careful to attempt to show no emotion, but flickers of indecipherable feelings flickered in the boy's eyes as he spoke with an usually formal tone.
"I have brought news of Kumogakure no Sato... More specifically... of Raika-dono."
