--The long strands of her hair is worn short with two long braids bound in white cloth, each ending in a large golden ring..
--scar on her right hip from being attacked by S-Class missing Ninja Hoshigaki Kisame
-She wears a traditional Samurai sleeveless haori and a yellow obi tied around her waist. Underneath her Haori, Soifon wears a black uniform with the front of a battle kimono, which has no sleeves and doesn't cover the back, though she does wear long black arm bands. Instead of wearing the standard Shinobi sandals, she wears traditional Chinese shoes with ordinary white socks.
--Despite her cold demeanor and constant attack towards her genin team, she has displayed a certain level of faith in them, like trusting Omaeda and Kentaro to act as a distraction while she and Onihime carry out a plan. Her stubborn attitude is so great that even now she still seems to hold a degree of dislike for Kisuke Urahara, Yoruichi’s lover, be it because Yoruichi used to tease her about him, or she found his lazy demeanor undisciplined or that she still blames him for her mentor's capture by the ROOT anbu of Konoha, when he was originally held a hostage to get her sensei’s bloodline. This is shown when she asks Harrigan Uzumaki to place the shop owner in a sealing barrier for a month in exchange for using her Stormcloak a second time in one day.
-- Soifon is Ranked the Tornado of the Ten Storms of Uzushiogakure, to her subordinates and Genin, she is cold and unwelcoming. But she is usually timid and shy around her Idol, Yoruichi the former Tornado of the Storms, and her boyfriend, Naruto her genin teammate and current holder of the Maelstrom position of the Storms.
-- She seems to be quite obsessed with her sensei, Yoruichi, and her Teammate, Naruto, and often spends her free time dreaming about the days when they fought together and practiced Shunpo. At one point, she even tried to give Naruto a heart-shaped box of chocolates when she went on a date with him for the first time. She seems to love anything that resembles a black cat, which is Yoruichi's alternate form when using her Yin/Yang Bloodline, and she has a large collection of black cat shaped merchandise. At one point, Soifon is given a black cat plushie by Rin Kurotsuchi, who has just returned from a mission to Kumogakure. It is also known that since Yoruichi's reappearance, after being held captive by Danzo’s ROOT, she began to collect cat accessories and had the Ten Storm Barracks, where the Ten Storms of Uzushio live, installed with floor-heating; the expenses were covered by her Genin student, Omaeda Kinuta, who is the Clan Heir of the Kinuta Clan. Soifon once seems to be affectionately admiring pictures of Yoruichi and Naruto. Later, as part of the photo collecting project of the Uzushio Women's Association she attempts to take nude photos of Yoruichi while she is distracted, but fails miserably. She is incredibly shy and timid when on dates with her Teammate and fellow Storm, Naruto Uzumaki, who holds the rank of Maelstrom.
--Soifon is a person of incredible resolve, not hesitating to do whatever it takes to complete a mission and defeat her enemy; an example of this can be seen during her battle with Hoshigaki Kisame, An S-Class missing Nin from Kiri, after being exposed to an attack she orders her current teammate to remove her arm without hesitation. Very rarely will Soifon show signs of desperation or emotion on the battlefield, except when it concerns her former sensei and Naruto.
--Soifon is staunchly loyal, firm, and unbending in her beliefs. She is a hard worker and takes a strong moral stance — she particularly believes in following orders. She is generally reserved and truly not arrogant in any manner like her genin students Omaeda and Kentaro, though she is not above mocking or joking around with her opponents or smirking while in combat, a trait also seen in her predecessor. She will not hesitate in the slightest to strike down even her subordinates if they betray Uzushiogakure. She chooses to ignore all her subordinates, including her genin student Omaeda, believing that personal struggle builds character. Soifon, like most Kunoichi, is a member of the Uzushio Women's Association.
-- Suì-Fēng likes fish, but dislikes meat. She is a large fan of Honey, which shortly led to her signing the Wasp contract and she hates the taste of any type of alcohol, believing it to be the bane of any good man or woman.
- Soifon tends to be picky about her food and what to eat.
- She tends to stutter or blush furiously when caught off guard by her Sensei and/or Naruto.
- She is extremely Loyal to her close friends and the Uzukage.
- Unlike her Sensei, Yoruichi or her boyfriend, Naruto, she doesn’t like to pull pranks; especially getting enraged when they pull one on her. She usually chases either one of the perpetrators around Uzushio until they or she runs out of stamina.
- She has a slight northern accent due to her clan coming from the lands north of Iwa.
- Her favorite saying: "Turn around and only an afterimage remains withal."
- She will at times mumble or stutter when she is embarrassed.
Flash Step Master: As a member of the Ten Storms and a Kunoichi of Uzushio, she is also highly proficient in Flash Step, a style of speed created by her mentor that can rival and even surpass the shunshin; her mentor’s is close to being on parr of the speed of the Yondaime Hokage’s Hirashin. She is able to almost keep up with her mentor Yoruichi Shihōin, being able to hit her multiple times with her claw gloves, but not getting a chance to hit her in the same spot twice, as Yoruichi was faster. She actively uses her mastery of Flash Step techniques, and is highly proficient in evasion in close quarters, as well as from a distance, thus making hitting her almost impossible for all but the most advanced combatant. Her movements are so fast that few would be likely to see an attack by her take place. It has also been noted by Mei the Uzukage that her Flash Step is the fastest of all Uzushiogakure (excluding Yoruichi and closely followed by Naruto).
Speed Clones: Suì-Fēng is able to create at least 15 clones of herself at once using Shunpo. While they are indistinguishable from her true self and mimic her movements, they do not seem to last long.
Cicada, referencing their molting: Way of Onmitsu, 3rd of the Shihō. It allows for a movement at great, sudden speed, leaving at least one tangible after-image behind.
Taijutsu Master: As the Tornado of the Ten Storms and Fon Clan Heir, Soifon is required to be highly proficient in hand-to-hand combat, which she had been training in ever since she first joined the Uzushiogakure Shinobi ranks. She is likely the most proficient hand-to-hand combatant in all of Uzushiogakure, being able to fight evenly with, and gain the upper hand against, her mentor Yoruichi Shihōin. She is also proficient in counterattacking. Her attacks have great speed and agility, leaving little time to counterattack. Additionally, it has proven difficult to actively lay a hand on her unless she allows it. She also implements the effect of her dual claw gloves in her taijutsu style, to inflict lasting wounds on her opponent.
Taijutsu: Windmill: A Taijutsu technique where one throws their body up into the air and makes a shearing movement with the legs to get one leg in front of the other without holding on to the ground. The move can either be done backwards or sideways. When the move is done, with one leg high over the head, the user delivers a devastating kick to the opponent, sending them flying away with tremendous force.
Taijutsu: Waterfall Carp: A Taijutsu technique where one blocks the kicks of an opponent by trapping the opponent's one foot against the forearm and blocking the other foot with the combatant's foot. The move blocks and traps the opponent, who is then open to an attack from the combatant's free hand.
Flash War Cry: An advanced technique that combines Taijutsu and Ninjutsu. She fights by surrounding her back and arms with pressurized Chakra. The keisen uniform has no back or sleeves because they will rip apart when the technique is activated. The technique takes the form of wind currents and its incomplete form is concentrated around her right arm. She has enough control to release the Chakra energy as a directed blast that can cause considerable damage to the surrounding area. She can use the technique to a greater degree later on, using it to block a devastating lightning blast and dissipate it, and block a blade attack as well as push it back with only her bare hand, using the energy of the technique as a barrier. She has shown that she can focus the technique's pressurized Chakra onto specific areas of her body, making the protection exceedingly more concentrated.
Infinite Flash War Cry: She would go on to complete the Flash Cry technique shortly after her fight with Yoruichi. Soifon discovered a technique for encircling her body multiple times to make the Chakra she emits revolve around her like a vortex indefinitely, therefore once she activates her Flash Cry she is able to maintain it for as long as she wants.
Kenjutsu Master: Soifon is masterful in swordsmanship, usually only employing her katana when facing an opponent with a drawn weapon. She is unique in that her fighting style is different from traditional styles. Soifon holds the blade horizontally in a reverse grip, using the blade like a large dagger with it pointed backwards towards the bottom of her gripping hand. All strikes are made by sweeping the arm forward, as though throwing a punch, while whipping the blade forward away from the arm quickly in a broad arc. She is quite adept at blocking with the blade in this manner as well. She also fights in the normal style masterfully, making her proficient in two variations of sword fighting.
Ninjutsu Expert: As member of the Fon Clan and the Ten Storms, Soifon is well versed in art of Ninjutsu, though she prefers to use Flash Step and Taijutsu techniques. She is experienced enough to mix it with other hand-to-hand combat techniques.
Master Kunoichi: As the Tornado of the Storms, Soifon is one of the foremost masters in the art of assassination. She is known to be skillful in staying hidden. Using Flash Step, she has disabled opponents without them being able to see her, as she did while catching the arrows of a rogue A-Class shinobi in battle. She also used this ability to sneak up on Danzo and temporarily capture him before he escaped back to Konoha. She has studied all the disciplines of the punishment force since she was a child, including poison. Because of this, over the years she has developed a resistance to nearly every poison there is, with the exception of Sasori of the Red Sand’s own unique brand of poison.
Master Strategist & Tactician: As member of the Ten Storms of Uzushiogakure, Soifon has shown herself to be a capable leader. Soifon has repeatedly proved herself to be insightful and crafty, capable of quickly understanding any situation that presents itself and adjusting to it effectively. Soifon has shown an innate skill to determine what actions should be taken in battle. The tactics she employs are based on subterfuge and confusion. She is adept at lulling her opponents into a false sense of security and allowing them to underestimate her abilities. A common tactic of hers is to gauge the opponent's strengths and weaknesses in the middle of combat.
Great Chakra Power: As the Tornado of the Ten Storms, she boasts a great amount of Chakra. Her Chakra is golden-yellow.
Masterful Chakra Control: Due to her position within the Uzushiogakure ranks, Soifon is trained in the mastery of hiding her presence and Chakra signature from detection.
Enhanced Strength: Soifon is strong enough to take on bigger opponents despite her smaller stature, easily overcoming those four times her own size. She has shown herself capable of lifting large slabs of concrete that she was buried under with little to no effort. During her fight with Tenken and Gonryōmaru, Soifon sent the latter flying into a wall with a single kick.
Enhanced Durability: Soifon is highly durable, able to withstand being kicked into buildings with enough force to go through walls and bring whole sections down on top of her while sustaining no apparent injuries. She even endured having her left arm cut off when dealing with Itachi’s Amaterasu, and still remained able to engage in combat for an extensive period of time.
Enhanced Flexibility: She is considered by some to be freakishly flexible and Agile. She is capable of nearly bending backwards in half to dodge strikes, sometimes aweing her opponents.
Soifon is slightly arrogant when it comes to fighting other shinobi and kunoichi. Her main weakness is when Naruto makes her favorite food or when she sees anything related to her sensei, like black cats or nude pictures of the woman.
Soifon was born Shaolin Fon into the Fon Clan, one of the lower clans affiliated with the Shihōin clan. She is in the 9th Generation of her family and as the youngest of six siblings she joined the Uzushiogakure Shinobi Ranks as was tradition in her family. Upon joining the militia, she dropped her given name, Shaolin Fon, and inherited the code name that her great-grandmother used, Soifon. Out of her five older siblings, two died on their first mission as genin, then two more became jounin before dieing. The last one died on his sixth C-Rank mission, effectively leaving her as an only child by the time she was eight.
As an Academy student and a Genin, Soifon trained intensely in order to become as strong as the current Tornado of the Ten Storms, Yoruichi Shihōin, the person she had come to adore. As she turned ten, her efforts finally paid off when Yoruichi took notice of her talent and promoted Soifon to become her personal protege. Initially, their differing personalities seemed to clash due to Yoruichi's laid back nature, however, Soifon dedicated her life to her master, happy to put her life on the line for her. In turn, Yoruichi took Soifon under her wing as her protégée, and they developed a close relationship as student and mentor, which only branched out later as Yoruichi took on Naruto Uzumaki, the outcast Kyuubi Jinchuuriki from Konoha, and Renji Terumi, the nephew of Mei Terumi.
She had a short temper when it came to Kisuke Urahara, her sensei’s lover, toward Yoruichi's intention of putting him up for promotion to be the new Firestorm of the Ten Storms because all she saw was his carefree attitude; being lazy and doing bad at his job. Soifon dragged Naruto with her to confront Yoruichi, concerned that she is overestimating Urahara's capabilities. She explained that she believes it was a mistake to even appoint him as an Anbu under her, and goes on to say that he is undeserving of such a position. While Yoruichi, without hesitation, admits to the fact that Urahara is not really a hard worker, she dismisses Soifon’s criticisms and playfully insinuates that her focus on him must have romantic connotations, though Soifon denies it entirely and stalks off; the team and Urahara later find out that she had a crush when it came to her Blonde teammate Naruto, so she took the jab of her liking Urahara as an insult.
