A clan, in the loosest sense of the term, refers to a family or group of shinobi who form a basic unit of a shinobi village. Majority of these clans were mercenary military forces even before the First Shinobi World War. Many clans would later establish the Five Great Shinobi Countries as they are known today, with their knowledge spread uniquely across the nations. Membership in a clan is usually determined by blood relations and genetics, or through unique membership, which is vital in the usage of kekkei genkai and secret techniques. These attributes and abilities made many clans feared and renowned throughout many villages. While clans may be composed of many individuals and extended families, many clans follow the model of a typical nuclear family.
The countries and villages of the world of Naruto are only as strong as the clans which inhabit it. Throughout the world unique jutsu abilities are passed down from generation to generation. Some abilities are passed down through genetics (bloodline), while others are skills and abilities only known to those in the clan.
A Clan refers to a family or group of shinobi who form a basic unit of a hidden shinobi village. A majority of these clans were known to have started out as mercenary military forces even before the First Shinobi World War, but over time grew with influence and power once their Secret Techniques came to be known. The first known clans across history agreed to settle and form a shinobi village, facilitated by creating agreements with the daimyō of the land they inhabit. Many clans would follow the example of these pioneers, later establishing the initial Five Great Shinobi Countries as they are known today, as well as the Lower Nations.
A Kekkei Genkai, or "Bloodline Limit", consists of abilities passed down genetically in specific clans from a parent to their children, to the point only those sharing such blood could control the aforementioned special powers. Kekkei Genkai and their related techniques cannot be taught to or copied by others due to their blood uniqueness. However, Kekkei Genkai can still given to others and assimilated through the proper methods.
Below are some rules regarding Bloodline's and Clans:
- Regular Clans can be joined at any time, as long as the joining requirements are met, while Bloodlines can only be born into (unless you somehow obtain a transplant).
- Players belonging to a Bloodline Limit can never obtain or use Advanced Releases (unless through rare forms like Bijuu).
- One can never be born with more than one Bloodline Limit (but others can be obtained through surgery).
- Bloodline Limits can never joined regular Clans, but regular clan-members can belong to more than one Clan, as long as they purchase extra Clan slots.
