The blades of vengeances have fallen swiftly. The shinobi are no more as 'Absolute Justice' has returned...now, it is the Samurai that rule the Five Major Nations!
But at what cost? Have they become the very thing that they despised the most...? Heroes and villains seem to change roles every day, but one thing is for certain - we yearn for our freedom, for days gone by where we flew the skies unhindered.
۞ Physical Appearance; Gunjar when barefoot stands at a daunting, six feet and eleven inches, and without the extra additions of clothes weighs in at a total of seventeen point eight stones. His short hair is kept in a fauxhawk-esque form and is white/off grey/silver in color. Far from bulky, he is still rather built, primarily focusing on his muscle tone rather than mass. His skin tone is rather fair, slightly tan if you would. Surprisingly though, unlike the majority if not all Inuzuka clan members, Gunjar's face is free of facial markings, a choice he stands by even at the current day. Gunjar's choice in clothing is rather simple, ranging from form fitting yet slightly baggy basic pants with a matching darkly colored sleeveless t-shirt and shinobi boots. To, a more elaborate one with black pants, a sleeveless jacket/vest, etc. He can almost always be seen wearing gloves though.

Ninjutsu (忍術; Literally meaning "Ninja Techniques") refers to any technique that utilises chakra and allows the user to perform actions that a normal person otherwise would be incapable of doing. Unlike genjutsu, which causes the opponent to experience illusions, the effects of ninjutsu are actual and physical in most cases. Ninjutsu relies on chakra and, most of the time, hand seals to be effective.
The hands are put in sequential positions that molds and manipulates chakra in the necessary manner to perform a technique. This is not always needed, however, and some techniques become second nature to experienced ninja, after which they can perform them at will. Additionally, many ninjutsu can be classified as an elemental techniques, in those cases where a specific element (wind, water, fire, earth, or lightning) is used.
Suiton, or 'Water Element', takes the form of water based attacks. Whether they are created by the user themselves, or obtained from a source nearby, all Suiton attacks aim to overwhelm their victims in traitorous waters. At the same time, walls of water can be summoned as a defensive measure against incoming attack, making it suitable for many uses. In this regard, Suiton is very diverse both defensively and offensively when it comes to shape modification, making it ideal for many forms of combat.
Kawarimi no Jutsu (Body Replacement Technique) Rank: E Type: Supplementary / Ninjutsu Range: 0 - 5 meters Handseals: No. Chakra: Very Low Special: Switch is near-instantaneous. Kawarimi can only be used once per thread, plus one more each time retrained. However, the technique itself can only be used once per turn, regardless of retraining. Requires the user to switch with objects equal or smaller in size; cannot switch with other living people or animals. Description: This jutsu lets the user quickly switch places with another nearby object, such as a plant (normally a section of a log), an animal, the moment an attack hits. This creates an optical illusion, making the enemy think the attack was successful. The user can then use this confusion to escape or launch a counter-attack - i.e. exploding tags can be attached to the replacement for an added surprise. Domain: Academy Ninjutsu.
Henge no Jutsu (Transformation Technique Rank: E Type: Supplementary / Ninjutsu Range: 0 - 5 meters Handseals: Yes. Chakra: Very Low Special: Allows the user to transform into any person, object or animal of normal/small/miniature size. Transformation can be held for one turn, plus one more each time retrained. Description: Henge no Jutsu is a very basic ninjutsu technique which every ninja learns at their respective village's Shinobi Academy. Henge allows the user to transform themselves into any person or object. This allows the ninja to move with stealth or to trick their opponents. Domain: Academy Ninjutsu.
Bunshin no Jutsu (Clone Technique) Rank: E Type: Supplementary / Ninjutsu Range: 0 - 5 meters Handseals: Yes. Chakra: Very Low Special: Allows the user to create a clone without substance that resembles the user in every way, including retaining its movement speed. Clones cannot mold chakra nor perform jutsu, nor can they harm. Up to one clone can be made, plus one more each time retrained. Description: Bunshin no Jutsu is a Ninjutsu technique which every ninja learns at the Ninja Academy. The Bunshin technique creates a copy of the ninja without substance that, although easily seen through by those with doujutsu, can fool the normal eye easily. Why? Simply because although without substance, the copy resembles the ninja in every way. This clone can function as a distraction or as means to confuse one's opponent, though no real damage can be done by it. Finally, as soon the Bunshin gets attacked or comes into contact with an opponent, it will disperse. Domain: Academy Ninjutsu
Kakuremino no Jutsu (Magic Cloak of Invisibility Technique) Rank: E Type: Supplementary / Ninjutsu Range: 0 - 5 meters Handseals: No. Chakra: Very Low Special: No other technique may be used while creeping. Invisible to the naked eye, but doujutsu and extra-sensorial skill will easily "see through" this technique. Description: Kakuremino no Jutsu is a very basic Ninjutsu technique. The ninja uses a camouflage cloth to cloak themselves in the background. Domain: Academy Ninjutsu
Nawanuke no Jutsu (Escaping Skill) Rank: E Type: Supplementary / Ninjutsu Range: 0 - 5 meters Handseals: No. Chakra: Very Low Special: Ineffective against complex, electronic, or unique binds. Description: Nawanuke no Jutsu is a very basic Ninjutsu technique that allows a ninja to escape from regular rope binds. Domain: Academy Ninjutsu
Kinobori no Waza (Act of Tree Climbing) Rank: E Type: Supplementary. Range: - Handseals: - Chakra: Low to cast, free to sustain. Special: - Description: Kinobori no Waza, the art of tree climbing serves a dual purpose. Taking part in Kinobori Shugyou (Tree Climbing Training) helps a ninja learn how to focus their chakra. It also teaches the ninja how to run up trees and walk on vertical walls. The training helps the ninja learn how to focus just the right amount of chakra to a particular part of their body. The amount needed to climb is small but it must be precise. The feet are regarded as the hardest location to master chakra focusing. So by gaining the art of this skill, the ninja will have any jutsu available (theoretically) because they will be able to focus their chakra as needed. Domain: Academy Ninjutsu.
Suimen Hokou no Waza (Act of Water Surface Walking) Rank: E Type: Supplementary. Range: - Handseals: - Chakra: Low to cast, free to sustain. Special: - Description: A variation on the Kinobori no Waza (Act of Tree Climbing), the art of water surface walking allows a ninja to walk on water as if it was a solid surface. Focusing an even amount of chakra out of the soles of their feet, they can balance themselves on the very surface of the water. Domain: Academy Ninjutsu.
Before becoming full fledged Genin, each aspiring shinobi must first pass the shinobi academy. Aside from the obvious lessons one would learn from a Ninja Academy, all students receive essential knowledge, such as reading, writing, mathematics, science, geography, strategy, tactics etc. But finally, they are taught the basics for the three arts; Ninjutsu, Taijutsu, and Genjutsu.
Taijutsu (体術; Literally meaning "Body Techniques") is a basic form of techniques that typically does not require chakra, though chakra may be used to enhance its techniques. Taijutsu generally require no hand seals to perform, occasionally making use of certain stances or poses, and are much quicker to use than ninjutsu or genjutsu. Taijutsu is simply put: hand-to-hand combat.
Used mainly by extremely powerful or physically dominating opponents, it aims to smash the opponent and even cause extreme extranal damage, such as broken bones. Less graceful and more physical, strength is key behind these techniques, as well as an overall sense of balance. In short, a Goken master is not to be taken lightly.
Tier One — The Hunter: With increased training comes increased abilities. The heightened senses of the Inuzuka clan member are increased twofold with the ranges on both Inuchōryoku (Dog Hearing) and Inukan (Dog Sensing) doubling. This allows for some of the greatest trackers of the shinobi world to easily locate their prey from a further distance.
Tier One — Feisty Pup: The companion is now gifted with low levelled strength in standard attacks, stacking this damage onto techniques performed alongside its master.
Dainamikku Mākingu (Dynamic Marking) Rank: D. Type: Supplementary. Range: 0 - 10 Meters. Chakra: – Handseals: - Special: This odor remains on target for 3 full turns. Description: Basic, simple, funny, and insulting - just one of the many adjectives behind the Dynamic Marking technique. When their canine partners release a stream of urine on their target, the clan member can use their excellent sense of smell to locate their target no matter where they are. The urine itself is more dangerous than normal urine, because of its burning and strong sticky qualities. On top of an excellent tracking jutsu, this technique is mainly used as a set up for the Soutourou technique. When the clan member and canine familiar are spinning at such high speeds they are unable to see where they are going, but by using their nose they are able to locate their target with little trouble. Domain: Inuzuka- Ninken.
Shikyaku no Jutsu (Four-Legs Technique) Rank: D, C, B, A, S Type: Supplementary. Range: – Handseals: 1. Chakra: D – Low, C – Mid, B – x2 Mid, A – High, S – x2 High to cast and sustain. Special: Speed buffs determined by rank used. Can not be performed by canine companion. When ranks A or S are active, the user can only perform Inuzuka and Taijutsu techniques. This bonus to agility, reflex, and speed does not stack with the Taijutsu Primary perk.
Description: The basis of all Inuzuka jutsu comes from Shikyaku no Jutsu. After forming the needed hand seals, chakra begins to emit from the body of the clan member and they take on a more canine-like appearance, granting them animal-like accelerated fighting instinct and reflexes to the user. By continuing their flow across their body and moving on all fours, they can obtain high speed movement and reflexes like that of a wild animal. Taught only to the members of the Inuzuka clan, this technique forms the basis of a Inuzuka clan member's taijutsu fighting style, and will add even more to their feral-like appearances; their canine teeth, their finger and toenails grow to claw-like length, their eyes also become more wild with their pupils becoming slits. When under the effects of this jutsu, an Inuzuka will display great feats of physical speed. Domain: Inuzuka.
Juujin Bunshin (Beast-Man Clone) Rank: C. Type: Supplementary. Range: -- Handseals: 1. Chakra: Low. Special: Clone is an exact visual replica of the user. Clone can perform all Inuzuka techniques unless explicitly stated otherwise in technique description. Clone possesses the same physical characteristics of whichever rank of Shikakyu the user is in at the time. Description: Once the Inuzuka has learned to turn their body into beast-like forms, they then pass on their newfound powers onto their canine partner. Acting in conjunction with the clan member, the canine familiar will transform themselves into a copy of the clan member once the appropriate handseals are finished. While in this form they can accomplish many of the same techniques as the original. When combined with the 'Four-Legged Technique', the user and the animal become virtually impossible to tell apart, since both act equally animalistic. Domain: Inuzuka.
Juujin Rendan (Beast-Man Combo) Rank: C.x2 Type: Offensive. Range: - Handseals: - Chakra: Low Special: Both participants do a slash, dealing low to moderate damage simultaneously. Initially, the user can make one attack with each hand, however with every retraining the number of attacks per hand increases by one while significantly increasing the damage done (after every retraining, the chakra consumption increases by one full tier [as in, low to mid, mid to high, high to massive]). Description: One of the more basic Inuzuka attacks, Satsugai Renda is known as characteristically straight forward, relying entirely on a quick and dirty bombardment of light strikes. Speed is the emphasis of this technique, which is themed with overwhelming an opponent with multiple weak strikes, leaving the victim vulnerable to a more powerful and definitive attack. As such, it is often used as a set-up ability. Domain: Inuzuka.
Tsuuga (Passing Fang) Rank: B. Type: Clan Taijutsu Range: 0 - 20 Meters Handseals: No Chakra: x2 Mid to cast, low to sustain. Special: Tsuuga's overall damage is a unique mixture of concussive and slashing, scaling the longer that the technique is in contact with the surface in question. Considering this can easily cut through thick branches and even some fairly strong barriers, this attack can be severely damaging if coming into contact with a human body. The maximum degree of angle this technique can turn is seventy-five. Tsuuga provides a fairly decent amount of immunity against moderate impact ninjutsu and taijutsu. Furthermore, due to the erratic movement of the technique, the user is completely immune to any and all forms of genjutsu. Description: Tsuuga is a basic taijutsu technique of the Juujin Bunshin style of combat, and the basis for a plethora of advanced variations. The default Tsuuga involves only the user performing the attack, though in more advanced versions, both he and his Ninken can attack simultaneously. While using this technique, the ninja can rotate and strike from multiple angles. The user spins at a ferocious speed and delivers many powerful beast-like attacks when contact is made with the target. While the actual traveling speed of the Tsuuga is not that impressive- the user covers distance fast enough to be hard to track by the unenhanced eye, though doujutsu tend to perceive it easily- it's strength lies in the astronomically fast rotational speed that the user encompasses while pressing forward. When utilizing Tsuuga, the user is putting out so much kinetic energy that hitting anything usually results in catastrophic damage. Domain: Inuzuka
Ea-Bureka (Air-Breaker) Rank: B. Type: Supplementary Range: - Handseals: - Chakra: x2 Mid. Special: Can initially be used once per thread, but can be retrained to increase limit by one (after every 3rd retraining, the chakra consumption increases by one). Allows the user to halt their Tsuuga in mid-attack and start it up again in a different direction. This can not be performed by animal companion. Description: By combining sheer brute strength with their ability to utilize friction and curve while performing tsuuga, user can almost instantly stop their forward momentum and redirect it in an entirely different direction. Domain: Inuzuka; Tsuuga.
Getsuuga (Fang Passing Fang) Rank: B. Type: Supplementary. Range: 0 - 20 Meters. Handseals: No Chakra: x2 Mid to cast, low to sustain. Special: This essentially doubles the baseline damage of Tsuuga (as the Ninken is now performing the exact same technique), dramatically increasing the concussive and slashing force that the victim must endure. All of Tsuuga's stats apply to this advanced formation of the technique, as well. Description: This advanced variation of 'Tsuuga' combines the power of two in order to deliver double the damage and increased coverage. With their partner in position, the user and their canine begin to spin wildly, moving forward at frightening speeds while carrying enough power to drill through stone. Domain: Inuzuka; Tsuuga.
RyInumanako no Jutsu (Dog Vision Technique) Rank: Bx3 Type: Supplementary. Range: 0 - 50 meters. Handseals: 4. Chakra: High to cast, low to sustain. Special: Due to the metamorphosis of the eyes, the user also gains the disadvantages of obtaining dog vision, meaning their visual acuity will be lowered to a mere ten meters, plus ten meters each time retrained, for a max of 50 meters. Anything beyond the range of this technique will appear extremely blurred, almost indiscernible at all. Description: Inumanako no Jutsu was created with a specific purpose, requiring the forced use of chakra, unlike the basic, passive techniques of the clan. Without the need of handseals, the user simply charges chakra within their eyes, their pupils enlarging, glowing radiantly from the light captured in the eyes, which grants them enhanced vision during darkness. This technique is completely useless in a lighted setting, but when troubled with a location that is basked in low light, the user is able to use this technique to receive flawless, unscathed vision. Domain: Inuzuka.
Chikatsuuga (Hidden Piercing Fang) Rank: C Type: Supplementary. Range: Half the total range of Tsuuga. Consumption: Mid Special: Allows the user to perform Tsuuga through solid objects or mediums such as water, or even the earth itself, and not lose momentum or control in the process. Description: By encasing oneself in a thin layer of chakra, upon performing a Tsuuga attack, the user can travel through solid mediums with the same ease as if he were traveling through the air. With this technique, one could burrow underground and come up for a surprise attack, or travel underwater. It can be used as both an assault or escape tactic, giving it much utility. Domain: Inuzuka. [/spoiler] The Inuzuka Clan (犬塚一族, Inuzuka Ichizoku) hails from Konohagakure, and is known for their use of canines as fighting companions. Known as the 'House of Dogs' these individuals are highly fond of man's best friend, and treat them like a member of their family. Clan members are given their own canine partner or partners when they reach a certain age, an honor within the clan that signifies the newest generation is ready to uphold the clan name. Thereafter, the shinobi and his/her dog(s) are practically inseparable. Unbreakable bonds of friendship and love are formed soon after, to the point either would die for the other on a whim -'til death do they part.
Clan members have distinctive colored fang markings on their cheeks as a representation of their friendship, as well as animalistic eyes, and enlarged canine teeth. It would seem that due to the bond between a Inuzuka and their canine partner(s), their chakra is allowed to mix and is shared between them, adding a feral appearance to the human partners. Both dog and owner move as on in battle, assisting each other perfectly with only the slightest communication. It's this perfect synchronization that affords them the use of the clan's collaboration jutsu, resulting in one very deadly mix.
In short, the House of Dogs is not to be taken lightly. [/i]
The Eight Gates are eight specific points on a person's Chakra Pathway System. They limit the overall flow of chakra within a person's body. The basis for the idea of the chakra gates comes from the body's limits on the functions within it. This makes the body much weaker, but it keeps the body from expiring too soon. By opening these gates, the user can surpass their own physical limits at the cost of extreme damage to their own bodies.
