Maeko Yuki (雪 前子, Yuki Maeko) is a kunoichi from Kirigakure, member of the Yuki Clan, and partners with another Kirigakure shinobi; Tatsuo Akayama

Maeko belongs to Pandaa-ko: pandaa-ko@deviantart.


Kirigakure was involved in the Third Shinobi World War. During that era; Blood Mist Village used powerful kekkei genkai to gain an advantage in the war. Due to the efficiency of kekkei genkai users, an experimental unit was formed. The idea was to create an ideal shinobi, a strong weapon for the Hidden Mist Village. Maeko was the result. With the powerful Ice Release kekkei genkai, and potential access to the kekkei tōta; Typhoon Release Maeko would become a secret weapon of the Mist.

After the Third Shinobi World War ended, kekkei genkai users had become feared for their abilities, out of concern that their existence would only bring out more war. Maeko's mother; Samui Yuki had sensed this danger and fled the village, creating the alias "Sen" to hide her true identity.


Makeo is cheerful spirit who shows kindness and compassion. She is extremely loyal and will not think twice about putting her life on the line to protect her comrades.

Maeko has demonstrated to be very stubborn, to the point of arguing even if she knows she is wrong. She can be a little distracted at times; taking forever to do nothing or mishearing others when they speak. Sen was talking about 'raising the hopes of younger kids'; to which Maeko rudely interrupts stating that she loves 'raisin toast'. She has shown to be a little naive and gullible at times, which tends to cause Sen problems.


Maeko is a little shorter then average. She has silvery-grey eyes and creamy hime-cut styled hair which she ties up in a short 'messy' ponytail with two noticeable short curls on either side.

Maeko's part I outfit consists of a blue lengthened gi that she wears more like a kimono. The sleeves are also kimono-type. She wears what looks like another shorter, white gi underneath and straps across her arms of the same colour. Around her waist is a slate-blue obi much like Haku's. It ties up at the back, with a fringed trail at the end. She wears black shorts, thigh-high stockings and navy-blue shinobi sandals. It is noted that on missions she wears two pouches, one one each side of her hips attached to her obi. Her Kirigakure forehead protector is located on her right arm with navy blue cloth, however she only wears when required.


Nature TransformationEdit

Maeko possesses admirable ninjutsu skills. Her prowess in water techniques leave her able to perform jutsu without a nearby water source. Maeko is also capable of the Hidden Mist Jutsu. By performing this technique, she creates a vast amount of mist which enables her to obscure her movements and protect her allies.

As a member of the Yuki Clan, Maeko possesses the kekkei genkaiIce Release. Ice release combines water based and wind based chakra and allows the user to manipulate, create and freeze water. This ice has been seen to be highly immune to fire release attacks as it does not melt that easily. Makeo's ice techniques are strong enough to freeze an entire lake. Maeko has been remarked on countless occasions as the most powerful in Ice Release techniques, and has the potential of a water style user such as Kisame Hoshigaki.

Sensing Edit

Maeko possesses outstanding chakra control. Having limited chakra supply, she has learned how to minimize the amounts required for her techniques. She has proved to be an above average sensor type. She is able to use her own chakra to sense others chakra, giving her the advantage of knowing when about to get ambushed, when followed or generally identifying unseen ninjas. However to use this ability Maeko must be touching the ground with at least two of her fingers.

Maeko cannot use this ability yet - planned for future.

Other AbilitiesEdit

Maeko is considered weak. She lacks both stamina, and strength; therefore her taijutsu skills are minimal. To avoid hand-to-hand combat, Maeko has trained in speed to ensure she keeps her distancing, and is able to evade incoming attacks. Her sheer speed is near impossible to track, difficult for even skilled shinobi. Maeko's speed however, is not only used as a defensive technique. She is able to perform hand signs fast enough to make it appear as if he could perform her techniques without seals. Not only that, but her attack strikes are incredibly fast, and difficult to dodge.

The drawback to this incredible speed is the vast amount of energy it takes to sustain it. Because of Maeko's condition, she is unable to hold it for long periods of time.

Part IEdit

Prologue Edit

Kirigakure is in a new era of peace, lead by the fifth Mizukage; Mei Terumi who has worked tirelessly to regain the strength of the Hidden Mist. A plan was devised for Kirigakure to take it's first leap to a better village. Maeko, and another shinobi; Tatsuo were key elements to this plan. Under the surveillance of [healer sensei] the two would participate in the upcoming chūnin exams, hosted by Kirigakure.

"Guess we're teammates" - Tatsuo Akayama.

Chunin Exams Edit

First test is a room under Genjutsu. This room is under a time-loop genjutsu. Members need to remove the genjutsu to see current time and proceide to the next round. Tatsuo realises immediately, but doesn't remove the jutsu (to make the mist village appear weak. Only kirigakure will bid on this team, and hence - win a lot of money). Instead, he places Maeko under another Genjutsu. Maeko spaces out, but soon realises she's under a genjutsu. She removes the genjutsu before Tatsuo undoes it, a feat not easily achieved. The two proceid to the next round.

The second test is a fight to the death, the twisted rule is that your teammember has the opposite marking you need to get through to the next round. During this test Members are tempted (even some killing their own teammembers) to proceid to the next round. Tatsuo turns on Maeko. "This is pointless, we're both as powerful as the other. Instead of wasting our efforts on eachother, we find another team". This is test of teamwork. Those who turn on their teammates are perminately dropped from the program.

The last test is the same as NARUTO one. Maeko and Tatsuo eventually fight. "we never got to end our battle". Neither one was victorious. "we're.. both the same.."

Maeko and Tatsuo make up and shake hands. The two become known as "the duo of the hidden mist".

Sen dies on a mission with Tatsuo. 

[Maeko's father] convinces Maeko to join him, Maeko agrees.

Tatsuo is sent on a mission that would most probably kill him. He hunts Maeko down to say his goodbyes.

Tatsuo fights.

Maeko joins the battle.

Maeko takes the hit for Tatsuo and almost dies.

Tatsuo finishes the battle.

Tatsuo cannot take Maeko back to the village, or back to her father. He calls Sensei, who agrees to commit treason and heal



[exchange] moves to the hidden mist as his father (sand) remarried, his mother (leaf - Yuhi) died.

Maeko dies of an illness. "you know nothing"

Dango Shop / Yuki IkedaEdit

After finishing a mission in Konoha, Maeko pleads with her sister to stop at the Dango Shop, a place she's always wanted to go to. Sen refuses, explaining that they don't have enough money and that they'll have to wait until they return to Kirigakure and get paid. 

Sen soon relents and gives Maeko some money, telling her to go to the Dango Shop and that she'd meet with her there later after she took care of some unfinished business. Maeko runs away before Sen can change her mind.

She quickly locates the shop, attracted by the giant dango in front. Maeko agonizes over the selection of dango, wondering which to choose before selecting the bocchan dango. However, she realizes while paying for the dango that she doesn't have enough. Unexpectedly, the girl behind her in line overhears her panicking and steps in to pay the remainder. Maeko waits for the girl (who was ordering anmitsu) at a table, and after asking her to sit, starts talking. 

Meanwhile, Sen had gotten lost looking for the Dango Shop and ended up at Amaguriama instead. When she finally arrives at the Dango Shop, she is shocked by the sight of her sister sitting and talking with an unfamiliar girl, who Maeko introduces as Yuki Ikeda. The three begin talking over dango and anmitsu, becoming involved in a long conversation.

After thanking Yuki (Sen had offered to pay her back, but she had refused), the sisters leave the shop. Sen mentions accidentally winding up at Amaguriama, and Maeko asks eagerly if they could visit it. Sen promises that they will the next time they're in Konoha, remarking that it'd be nice to see Yuki again as well. Maeko agrees, saying that there are nice people in Konoha.

Meeting Neighbors / Sanger Kazan Edit

After completing a mission and returning to Kirigakure, Maeko and her sister return to the Yuki residence. After Sen decides to look around the compound for damages, Maeko decides to do the same. Shortly after she starts her inspection, she begins to daydream about the fully restored Yuki compound will look like.

A short time later, Maeko snaps out of her daydream when she hears the sounds of fighting. She rushes to Sen's location and sees her being attacked by a silver-haired boy. Seeing him weave hand signs, Maeko quickly forms a wall of ice in front of Sen, protecting her from the boy's attack. After a short talk with her sister, Maeko and Sen prepare to attack the boy, only to stop when they see him on his knees apologizing.

Maeko listens to the boy introduce himself as Sanger Kazan and says that he is a member of the Yuki clan, despite his last name, causing her to tear up at the realization that she and Sen have living family. After listening to his explanation on why he attacked them, Maeko barrages him with questions about his mother.

After her sister explains to Sanger that they wish to rebuild the Yuki compound, he offers to help them with his own income and to teach them his own Ice Release techniques, causing Maeko to beg Sen to agree. Seeing how happy that she is, Sen agrees, much to Maeko's joy. Shortly afterwards, Sanger shows them where he lives and to come get him if they ever need anything.
