First of all thank you so much! ;A; and I can be your senpai (even though I’ll probably be younger and a lame senpai *laughs*.)
• I must say that my knowledge is more focused over the Pre-gen era in Naruto (first and second hokage era.) but I’ll try to cover all the areas.
Where to begin uhm………
-OC’s back story /Background.
PLEASE, don’t make an OC only to pair it with a canon character. I don’t know how to concern people about this but it is hideous to see OCs created in order to be someone’s sex/love affair. Make her/him have a dream, a goal to fight for this doesn’t mean that, the OC during its life time, cannot have a love/friendship relationship with a canon (Which is totally fine and sometimes even necessary.) That will make the OC credible and solid.
Unfortunately, deviantART and Tumblr are filled with shallow OCs who follow cliché criteria. The OCs should have an innate personality which will be developed due to the events during their life. Try to avoid to make their live a drama, it’s over used and cliché.
Shiny hair colors are totally forbidden, “normal” hair colors are good options and if you want to give to your OC an eccentric hair color try to make it dark-ish and I would say the same about white hair color.
Shinobi tend to be fit so it’ll be fine if your OC is muscular male (please not like a Street fighter character.) as for a female OC thin or muscular body shapes is also nice. If you want to give her large breasts keep in mind that the Naruto characters with larger breasts are Tsunade, Samui and Mei so try not to surpass their size.
The attire should be simple, an over detailed is “ooc” and would be uncomfortable for a shinobi.
This is an OLD OC of mine. Her attire is simple but comfortable.
For a pre-gen OC their attire should be based using the following canon Clans. For fan made Clans the attire should be similar to Canon Clans just try to make them be hallmark of the Clan.
-Name & Surname.
As for the name, Kishimoto didn’t use actual Japanese names for most of the characters. He gave them names given their personalities, their role in the Naruto story or/and appearance. For example “Hinata” means “Sunny place” this makes reference to her personality, she’s a bright and kind girl. “Sakura” has that name because her hair has the same color as the Sakura trees. “Tobirama” (扉間) means ‘the space between two doors’. ‘Doors’ (扉, tobira) are seen as the access to progress and improvement which alludes to his role as the Hokage that built up Konoha’s infrastructure. ‘扉’ is also used to refer to title pages, tying in with the Hokage title, as a Hokage is as representative for the village as the title page is for a book. Flower names might be also a good choice, but again, try to make it fit a side of the OC.
IfIt’s highly unlikely for a Uchiha clan member to have survived the massacre. Kirigakure (located in the land of water) had two clan’s which were the ‘Kaguya’ and ‘Yuki’ clan. It’s noted that all the members of the Kaguya clan were annihilated when they attack Kirigakure. The only sole survivor was Kimimaro – with the dead of the last remaining member the clan is now extinct. There are still some possibilities for the Yuki clan but thorough research is needed to make this work. I’d not support making a post-Yuki clan member but like I stated; there are certain possibilities, still. It’s fine if they’re Uzumaki, they doesn’t have to have red her per say.. Yamanaka, Inuzuka, Akimichi and Nara are also allowed. If they are pre-gen Uchiha don’t make them have the Magenkyo Sharingan, only few members of the clan were able to awaken it and the same goes to Senju and the Mokuton.
Fan made Clans, well, make a believable Clan, please, nothing sue-ish. For example the Chiba, they had their own Kekkei Genkai, Storm release (only a few members were able to awaken it, though.)I tried to make then as canon as possible,this clan didn’t suffer a massacre and such. They had their own ways and traditions. Hyûga are not like Uchiha and Uchiha are not like Senju. Massacres are allowed but only during the Warring States period since it was war, “Murder or to be murdered” was something common among shinobi but again don’t make this OC an “emo” for that.
(On a side but bright note: not all the naruto characters belog to a clan ;D)
