D E S C R I P T I O NThe Kumogakure Academy is a place that literally everyone in the village has been to at least once. If not being a ninja, they have gone for a graduation, to look up an article, to take their kids to play- you name it. A very bleak building, it resembles nothing that other villages have created for their academy. Training their ninja to constantly be ready to react, the academy has an almost constant presence of training dummies for people to test their techniques against on the fly. Holding various classrooms, both children and adults are constantly in and out of the building, both to teach, learn and to access the library. While the classrooms take up the majority of the west wing, the east wing is actually entirely dedicated to the library, which spans a total of five floors! With an almost infinite amount of scrolls and books lining the walls, it holds almost every fact about Kumogakure known to the public, including a few articles pertaining to Kaminari no Kuni. Examples are seen below.
WHAT IS KUMOGAKURE?Kumogakure no Sato is a village within the country of Kaminari no Kuni. Unique from any other hidden village, Kumogakure was built within the mountains, in order to find refuge within the clouds. For that reason, Kumo-nin have adapted well to the altitude, preventing acute mountain sickness. Foreign attackers will never be accustomed to the height of the village, so be sure to use that to your advantage. Like most villages, we train our lower ranked ninja to cooperate in three man teams for all of their missions. Once reaching Chuunin rank, and can lead a squad of their own, they will be allowed to create teams of their own. Jounin are not obligated to work with teams, although it is always encouraged.
Kumo-nin are very diverse in their appearance. Ranging from pale to dark skin, as well as dark hair to blonde, there is no real archetype for the village. However, most Kumo-nin are quite fit- and are encouraged to take up recreational lifting in order to build their muscle mass. This, of course, has nothing to do with their genetics. It is also encouraged that they maintain constant conditioning in order to maintain their resistance of acute mountain sickness. Kumogakure's uniform has varied throughout the years, though now typically consists of a combination of black, white, and red. Typically, Kumo-nin wear black sandals, black pants, a white tunic-cut flak jacket, and a collared black shirt beneath it. While this varies from ninja to ninja, the most common variations are either a lack of sleeves, or a lack of a shirt altogether. Finally, the Kumo-nin will often use red bandages to keep their joints from spraining.
The personality of the village has remained consistent throughout its initial birth. Always very confident in their abilities, Kumo-nin all have a very evident sense of humor. While they don't always go out of their way to make jokes, it is very clear that they all love each other. There are occasional rivalries, but it is always out of good-will. While this is evident when together, their demeanor completely changes when in the face of an adversary. Never admitting to a weakness, Kumo-nin are often prepared to get the job done as quickly as possible. While small talk is hardly given a chance, when there is room for it, Kumo-nin are commonly known to trash talk. Having a history of being one of the most profitable villages in the world, they have a lot of room to do so!
WHAT ARE OUR PRINCIPLES?Kumo-nin follow a very concrete set of principles. Often holding an allegiance to their village above all else, every ninja is expected to pay their respects to any of their fallen comrades. The solidarity that is built throughout the village makes them all brothers and sisters, and any disrespect taken to their comrades is disrespect taken to themselves. Coupled with Kumo's constant need to assert their strength against their enemies, this has created a massive movement that wants to prove their dominance in the ninja world, and are working together to achieve that goal. As a village, they can stand together and confirm: power is everything.
WHAT MAKES US WHO WE ARE?Kumogakure has had a history of incredibly powerful shinobi. From the shinobi who founded the village centuries ago, to ninja who walk the streets and rooftops as you read this, there are constant examples as to the power of this village!
