* Redeem Rock Lee phonestraps and keychains! *
Name: Rock Lee
Birthday: 27 November
Teacher: Maito Gai
Teammates: Hyuuga Neji, Tenten
Only uses : Taijutsu
Power jutsus : Primary and Secondary lotus
Background: Dropout from school who can only use taijutsu but trains to be strong. Believes that a dropout can defeat a genius through hard work.
The Deal with him: Too unique for Sakura's tastes but touched Sakura ultimately to care for him, Rock Lee is one who never gives up. In that way, he's like Naruto. Though a dropout who couldn't use ninjutsu, Lee's ambition was to be an excellent ninja. His perserverence (and fuzzy eyebrows) grabbed the attention of Maito Gai, his teacher, who trains him hard to be the most powerful taijutsu specialist at the Chuunin exams.
Unfortunately for Lee, he was matched up against Gaara during the final Chuunin exams preliminaries. Gaara used sand as an absolute defense to soften Lee's attacks and crushed Lee's arms and legs with his Desert Coffin technique. Having already opened life gates, Lee was heavily injured and would have been killed had Gai not stopped Gaara. Lee was injured so badly that even Tsunade the medical specialist had reservations about doing an operation on him and advised him to live a life other than a Shinobi's. Lee now must face the choice between choosing another life or taking the risk between fulfilling his dreams and dying.
