Rouzu Chimamire (ローズ ちまみれ Rose Bloody but pronouced as Bloody Rose) is a former member of the Akatsuki, a criminal organization lead by Koi Shūrai, joining shortly before leaving her village, Amegakure, behind her and became a highly wanted international missing-nin doing so. Rouzu is the former designated partner of Tekketsu. She joined the Akatsuki after challenging and losing to its leader, asking to join. Her reason for doing so was that the leader was a strong opponent and she respected his strength and ideals greatly, becoming firmly loyal to him. Since then, she has strived to become stronger and learn what she truly desires in this life, which has now become her goal. However, after Koi Shūrai assassinated her closest friend, Recca Akira, Rouzu disbanded from the organization, cut off all her hair and renamed herself as Hakuseki Kuchinashi (はくせき くちなし; White Gardenia) with Kuchinashi as her taken first name and Hakuseki as her given surname. The Hakuseki, being a small, peaceful clan located somewhere within the Land of Fire. The clan, however, is very secluded and not much is know about it. The name Rouzu is also Recca Akira's favourite plant and for that reason, she wears an origami-made gardenia hairclip, made by Recca and left in her Will. Along with cutting off her hair and regrowing it back naturally, as well as her new alter-ego pseudonym, Kuchinashi (more commonly referred to as Ash), she now bares a more figure-flattering attire, as well as a more tanned figure (as she has fair skin and tans easily, quickly prompting her to hide her skin from the sun). Furthermore, with her new found identity as Ash, she took the exam and ticked off the qualifications needed to become an International Mercenary and now serves the Five Great Shinobi Nations, who seem unaware of her former idenity.
Rouzu Chimamire (now known by Hakuseki Kuchinashi and by Ash) was born in Kumogakure, in the Land of Lightning, to a wealthy but corrupt family named the Chimamire (Bloodly) due to their high position, actions and underworld affairs, as a child to the head of the Chimamire Clan, and an illegimate child due her mother having an affair. The clan was highly feared and hated in Amegakure, often being nickname Chimamire Muma (Bloody Nightmare), in which it was located as such Rouzu was raised in Amegakure. Rouzu's late mother was named Lily who's family is believed to trace back to Kirigakure. She fled after the civil war due to wide-spread persecutions against those with Kekkei Genkai. It is thus possible that Rouzu is a distant relative of Mei Terumi, the Fifth Mizukage. As for her father, it is revealed he is named Koushou (High, Noble). Rouzu, who had a neglected and pressurized childhood environment, was shunned by her father, who was unhappy at the fact his only child was a somewhat dim-witted girl, as well as something of shame being the illegimate child of an affair and not of his wife. As such, she was raised by one of her father's servants, Naisu (Nice), who was the closest thing to a mother Rouzu ever had. Eventually, her farther and mother had a son named Sutaa (Star) and was ashamed of his daugther. Having no further need for her, he ordered that she be poisoned and left to die in her sleep. However, Naisu, over hearing this plot, took Rouzu and fled. Unfortunately, she was assasinated, craddling the young child Rouzu in her arms while dying. However, to the observing eyes of ten-year old Recca Akira, the three-year old child was too young to be harmed. As such, Recca knocked out the assassin using a slab of pavement tossed aside and took Rouzu into her arms and fled.
During this time, Recca brought Rouzu up on the streets and protected he. However, the two struggled to survive, constantly being ignored or beaten. They survived off of theft, often being caught and beaten harshly. As such, Recca honed her physical strength until she could take down a full grown man by herself. It is most likely during this time that Rouzu acquired her competitive nature, having to fight to survive. The two shared a very sisterly bond, Recca acting as the big sister, "Nee-san", and Rouzu as the younger, "Nee-chan".
Two years later, a shinobi came across Rouzu, recognizing her talent, due to her natural gift of high amounts of chakra and her Kekkei Genkai, Boil Release. He took her in as his own child. However, Recca was unable to provide for Rouzu. The old man could have declined her of a home, and after learning the basic jutsu needed to become a shinobi, she left the old man left to become a genin in Konohagakure. She took the exam as an outsider and passing with flying colours. With Recca gone, Rouzu grew up under the care of the shinobi, who was an old man getting on in his years and as such, didn't have much bite left in him. He was past his prime and lonely, having no living relatives or love interest. As such, he quickly took a liking to Rouzu, a misbehaved, cheeky and competitive child who gladly returned the affection, nicknaming him Ojiichan (Grandfather), when he took her in and acted as a surrogate father.
Rouzu later attended Amegakure Ninja Academy, graduating at the age of 10 before becoming a chunin 2 years later. Finally, 4 more years later, she became a jōnin at the age of 16. Sometime later, Ojiichan passed away and Rouzu later left Amegakure, becoming a missing-nin shortly after joining the Akatsuki.
Hakuseki Kuchinashi (Rouzu's new alias) is a young, somewhat tall, tanned-skinned girl with long, silky, slick golden blonde hair. During her time as an Akatsuki, she dyed her hair crimson and bore in a short spiky manner, covering up the majority of her face and her emerald eyes. Ash is known to have a slim build body and is a beautiful, toned kunoichi. Her current attire consists of a clear cloudy white dress and brown fabricated boots with rubber soles. Her fingernails, once glittered in dark crimson to match her former hairstyle, are now baby pink. Many people consider her as very good looking, attractive or even beautiful. Ash shares many traits with that of a wild cat, such as fangs when she is mad, feline-like agility and flexibility. Furthermore, she possesses heighted vision in each eye and, as such, feline-like eyes. Her chakra adopts a crimson colour (the colour of blood). Furthmore she is noted to possess the fragance of roses, fish, blood, and most recently, gardenias.
Contrary to her feminie appearance, Ash is portayed as easygoing, tomboyish, hyperactive, competitive and easily bored. She is undiplomatic, believing in the use of brute force and fighting to sort out her issues, throwing around challeges. She also claims that injury and death are nothing but the price one pays for a good fight. Despite portraying several dim-witted and brash habits, she has shown at times to be very intelligent and resourceful. A good example is that she regularly makes sure to have at least basic knowledge of the landscape for which her next mission will take place, as her fighting style not only relies on her own stengths and weaknesses, but also that of the surroundings, to give herself an advantage in combat.
Ash is shown to have a bloodthirsty side (in a literal sense), as shown quite reguarly. She can quickly change from a cheerfully, playful mood to a cruel, merciless and sadistic killer without a conscience. She rips her opponents to shreds, causing them great angong and pain, grinning and even laughing in the act, her eyes becoming bloodshot and demon-like while doing so. In contrast to this, she is revealed to be extremely ticklish and loves animals, especially cats, referring to them as "kitties". She has been shown to buy and leave milk for them, stroke them and admire them before leaving in a joyful mood, whistling on mulitple occasions.
Also despite her being very blood-thirsty, she does have her own code of ethics and morales, such as protecting the weak and those she cares about. Her ciew on the meaning of friendship has shown to be very deep (though there are few people she cares deeply). One of her funnier aspects is that she's quite forgetful, implying that her brash attitude caters to her stupidity. On multiple occasions, she has shown to greatly respect those who can defeat her in a fight and to those who can push her to her limit, such as the respect she showed to Koi.
Ash is shown to reguarly express her willingness to engage him in a rematch every time they meet, only to be turned down. It is shown that Ash joined the Akatsuki after challenging and losing to its leader, agreeing to join afterwards. She respects him for being a strong opponent, as well as his ideals, becoming firmly loyal to him. Since then, she has strived to become stronger and learn what she truly desires in this life.
After the Akatsuki was reformed, Ash was recruited by its new leader, Koi, after losing to him in combat. However, it has since disbanded and with a new identity.

The Hakuseki is a peaceful and small clan located somewhere within the Land of Fire. The clan, however, is very secluded and not much is know about it.
