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.
Kawarimi no Jutsu (Body Replacement Technique) Rank: E Type: Supplementary / Ninjutsu Range: 0 - 5 meters Handseals: No Chakra: 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 that range from equal in size to as small as half their 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) 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: 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: 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: 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: 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.
Kekkai • Tengai Houjin (Barrier • Dome Method Formation) Rank: D, C, B, A, S Type: Defensive. Range: 0 - 50 meters. Handseals: 7. Chakra: D - Low, C - Mid, B - Mid, A - High, S - x2 High. Special: D-rank is 10 meters, and each rank increases by 10. Must be standing still in order to use. Description: Kekkai • Tengai Houjin is a Ninjutsu technique named a barrier jutsu due to the field of chakra that it disperses around. After having their hands come together, the user can extend a sensory barrier to detect the movements of a hidden foe. Should the field touch their opponent, the user will know their position immediately. Domain: Universal Ninjutsu.
Kage Bunshin no Jutsu (Shadow Clone Technique) Rank: B Type: Supplementary. Range: 0 - 5 meters. Handseals: 1. Chakra: Halves the user's chakra. Special: When first learned, a single Shadow Clone can be produced. Each time re-learned, one additional clone can be made, for a maximum of 5. Please remember that regardless of the amount of clones made, the chakra is still divided evenly amongst all bodies. However, when a clone is defeated or chooses to disappear, whatever remaining chakra within their bodies, as well as their knowledge, returns to the user. The only exception is 'Bunshin Bakuha', which sacrifices the chakra return for a grand explosion. This technique can only be learned by Jounin ranked shinobi; no exceptions! Description: Kage Bunshin is an advanced, forbidden Ninjutsu technique, which grants the user the ability to create a tangible clone. The normal Bunshin technique creates a copy of the ninja that lacks any substance. However, Kage Bunshin distributes the ninja's chakra evenly among the clones and creates a real copy with form and substance, to the point the clone can utilize any jutsu the original ninja knows, and spawns with any equipment the user has one them at the time of the summoning. When the clone finally disperses, any new knowledge it has gained is passed back to the original ninja and any additional clones. Domain: Universal Ninjutsu.
Hien (Flying Swallow) Rank: B. Type: Offensive. Range: 1 foot extension. Chakra: High to cast, Mid to sustain. Special: Extends the blade of any bladed weapon through chakra by a maximum of twelve inches. Description: By consciously feeding their chakra into any bladed weapon, the user will manage to extend the length of the weapon by providing an extra extension of visible chakra. This creation will yield an extremely sharp edge that functions like the normal blade itself. By seeing only the user's bladed weaponry, the opponent may miss the Hien and misjudge how far they need to move to avoid an incoming strike. As a result, even if they manage to avoid the metal portion of the blade, the chakra portion may cut into them as well. Domain: Universal Taijutsu.
Tier One – Kenpou Tenshin: Also known as Forward Turning, those who have mastered the Hitenryuu style to this degree have learned to further exploit their opponents via the simplistic Tenshin technique. With this mastery, the user performs their Tenshin with such speed and precision that they may immediately follow-up with the Rekkaken (Blazing Fist) technique.
Tier Two – Hiken: It is no secret that the Hitenryuu is widely reknowned for its Nintaijutsu arts, combining the Katon element with a slew of its techniques. However, there are several masters who have learned to ignite every technique in their arsenal with their fiery, blazing chakra. For an increment of one Mid worth of chakra, the user can engulf all of their Hitenryuu attacks in a fiery sheath that deals a moderate amount of extra burn damage (comparable to third degree burns).
Tier Three – Sentou Shouten: Regarded as the Pinnacle of Focus, this level of mastery represents the user’s dedication to their mind and body under the philosophy of, “The limitations you feel are all in your head; ignore them!” By pushing their body to its true limits, the user has learned to tap into the true potential of their Shouten Batsu, increasing the techniques capable of being absorbed to A-rank and by eliminating the restriction of using it while in their danger zone and the bonus critical damage that would be applied if they were to try. However, this does not eliminate the fact that the accumulative damage will still befall the user if they are hit by any form of an attack while using Shouten Batsu in their danger zone. Likewise, the duration of their danger zone will stack, increasing with each technique absorbed.
Tenshin (Turning) Rank: D Range: Close (0m ~ 5m) Type: Supplementary Handseals: - Chakra Consumption: Low
A simple technique used moreso for positioning, the user simply hooks their leg around an opponents and then proceeds to roll over their back and shoulders to the other side. If done quickly and effectively, the user can position their opponent for a timely follow-up assault. Unfortunately, the user cannot attack while using this technique.
Rekkaken (Blazing Fist) Rank: C Range: Close (0m ~ 5m) Type: Offensive Handseals: - Chakra Consumption: Mid
The signature ability of the Hitenryuu, this ability involves delivering three very quick, powerful strikes to the opponent’s torso region. Each strike carries more force than the next, with the third knocking the opponent clean off their feet up to a maximum of two meters.
Note: Like most techniques involving multiple strikes, should the first hit, the subsequent two will as well.
Rekkuyaku (Air Tearing Kick) Rank: C Range: Close (0m ~ 5m) Type: Offensive Handseals: - Chakra Consumption: Mid
A simple technique, though dealing with advanced movements, this is one of the Hitenryuu’s premiere ways of closing moderate amounts of distance rather quickly. By quickly pooling chakra in the soles of their feet and then jumping, the user can launch themselves toward their opponent with a flying kick, which then is linked into a front flip kick after striking the opponent with the original assault for a total of three dazzling strikes.
Note: Like most techniques involving multiple strikes, should the first hit, the subsequent two will as well.
Shienkyaku (Kindling Blaze Kick) Rank: B Range: Close (0m ~ 5m) Type: Offensive Handseals: - Chakra Consumption: High
One of the more advanced Hitenryuu techniques; this involves incorporating the Katon element into their basic Taijutsu. After focusing a large portion of chakra into their foot, the user then revolves it around their body while leaping upwards and kicking vertically. This motion is done with such speed that the chakra within erupts outward, igniting the leg in question in a sheath of fire that can deal severe damage to chose caught in its path.
Note: The user must possess the Katon Element in order to achieve the full effect of this technique. Otherwise, the user will simply perform a spiraling vertical kick. The flames from this kick are not fatal; however, they can deal a fairly great deal of additional damage (3rd degree burns) on victims.
Rekkashinken (True Blazing Fists) Rank: A Range: Close (0m ~ 5m) Type: Offensive Handseals: - Chakra Consumption: 2x High
The more advanced and empowered version of the Rekkaken, this technique adds two additional punches to the Rekkaken combination. However, the chakra infused within the punches throughout the entire course of the assault raise the power of each blow by a substantial degree. This technique possesses the ability to easily shatter multiple ribs, and the knock-back has been increased to three meters rather than two.
Note: Like most techniques involving multiple strikes, should the first hit, the subsequent four will.
Shien Renkyaku (True Kindling Blaze Kick) Rank: A Range: Close (0m ~ 5m) Type: Offensive Handseals: - Chakra Consumption: 2x High
The more advanced version of the Kindling Blaze Kick, this technique increases the dosage of chakra fed into the desired foot and thereby dramatically increases its destructive power. At this level, the flames engulfing the user’s legs becomes so hot that it varies between shades of blue and white (opposed to the red and orange). Furthermore, rather than a single kick, the spiraling rotating force allows for a maximum of four consecutive hits. This much damage is, without a doubt, fatal to any who might fail victim to it.
Note: This technique requires the user to have the Katon element, otherwise this will simply function as a four-hit kick. Like most techniques involving multiple strikes, should the first hit, the subsequent three will.
Ryuu Yassai (Imperial Heavy Rotation) Rank: A Range: Close (0m ~ 5m0 Type: Offensive Handseals: - Chakra Consumption: High
One of the stronger combination maneuvers of the Hitenryuu, this technique involves a series of two punches and a leaping kick. First, the user will strike their opponent with a flaming punch aimed toward their torso; upon connecting, they will then uppercut their opponent into the air. Finishing this circuit, the user will then leap forward and, with their leg that has been engulfed by a sheath of flame, kick their opponent clean across the face.
Note: This technique requires the user to have the Katon element; otherwise this will simply function as a three-hit combo. Like most techniques involving multiple strikes, should the first hit, the subsequent three will.
Shouten Batsu (Focus Attack) Rank: S Range: Close (0m ~ 5m) Type: Supplementary Handseals: - Chakra Consumption: Low – Massive
This is a truly versatile technique involving the user’s raw chakra that the user can employ into almost any situation. By coating themselves in a layer of chakra, almost like a second skin, the user can effectively “absorb” a single attack (regardless of whether it is Ninjutsu or Taijutsu). Using this method, then can then deliver a single blow by redirecting the force and chakra of the previously assimilated technique immediately after (this punch or kick must be your next attack in order to facilitate this bonus damage). However, the user does not necessarily have to attack, and then can simply use it to absorb assaults and safely position themselves elsewhere.
Note: This attack can absorb the force or nature of any Taijutsu or Ninjutsu of B-rank and below, effectively neutralizing it and then immediately turning it (the sheer power) back on the opponent in a single strike. However, absorbing the force of these techniques comes with a risk. Each rank of a technique comes with its own “danger zone” duration, which is a point in time that should the user be struck by any form of an attack, they will suffer the full damage of the technique they previous absorbed on top of the strike in question.
D-rank Techniques: The duration of the user’s danger zone is one post after an attack has been absorbed. C-rank Techniques: The duration of the user’s danger zone is two posts after an attack has been absorbed. B-rank Techniques: The duration of the user’s danger zone is three posts after an attack has been absorbed.
It should be noted that a user is incapable of using this technique while their danger zone is active. Attempting to do so while it is will result in the accumulated damage befalling the user at once, as well as dealing an additional critical level.
Gekirinken (Imperial Wrath Fist) Rank: S Range: Close (0m ~ 5m) Type: Defensive Handseals: - Chakra Consumption: Massive
Considered the greatest counter in Taijutsu abroad, this ability focuses around dealing a large amount of damage after you have exposed a weakness in your opponent’s offense. After effectively evading a strike, the user will deliver a crippling kick to the side of their opponent’s leg to ensure they cannot move. From there, they will then deal a flurry of forward and backhanded strikes (totaling in 9) to their victim before stepping forward and pressing their fist so close it is but an inch away from the opponent’s chest (who, during this time, is dazed). With all of the chakra compressed into their knuckles, the user will then punch forward and unleash the full ferocity of their attack into the opponent’s torso, launching them back a maximum of five meters. Continuing a battle after being attacked in this fashion is highly unlikely.
Note: This ability can only be used as a counter attack to Taijutsu-based techniques. Furthermore, it must be a viable counter (i.e you can’t use this on a sweeping kick). Like most techniques involving multiple strikes, should the first attack connect, the subsequent ten will as well. Furthermore, the chakra cost only applies should the technique be successful (i.e attempting the opener does nothing).
Rekkashingeki (True Flaming Strikes) Rank: S Range: Close (0m ~ 5m) Type: Offensive Handseals: - Chakra Consumption: Massive
Considered to be the succession technique of the Hitenryuu, this ultimate combination assault incorporates all of the style’s principle techniques into a single, explosive onslaught. The user will first begin with the traditional triple-strike of the Rekkaken. However, rather than launch their opponent away, the user will simply crumple them with the third punch. From there, the user will deliver a flurry of seven strikes, the last of which is an uppercut that launches the opponent high into the air. Sealing their fate, the user will then leap into the air and, with a leg that has been fully engulfed in flame, kick their opponent clean across the face. The sheer power behind this technique is enough to that, should anyone be unfortunate enough to fall victim to it, continuing a fight after would be nearly impossible.
Note: This technique requires the user to have the Katon element, otherwise this will simply function as a powerful twelve-hit combo. Like most techniques involving multiple strikes, should the first hit, the subsequent ten will.

[style=width: 350px; font-family: times new roman; font-size: 12px; padding: 5px; text-align: justify;][style=float: right; margin-left: 8px;]The boy's verbal response was about eighty percent predicted, leaving the twenty percent to be what he wanted to hear. Nonetheless Sebastian found himself nodding the entire time the boy spoke, he had to agree, he wouldn't just let one random individual into the village. Though, like he was doing with Kirigakure, he was merely asking for a council, thus a message would need to be delivered by the boy to the Raikage. Leaning back into his full height, his right hand still in his pants pocket, Clave spoke through his toothy grin.
"Well, I know how this works and it was pretty up front of me to ask such a thing I do agree. But, would you mind delivering the message to your dear Raikage? Telling him one half of the Brothers of The Falls is requesting a council with him? It'd be much appreciated boyo!"
With his grin widening from ear to ear Sebastian listened as his stomach let out an audible growl. But, it was almost ghostly as if he didn't feel the real need to eat. But, there was still an urge to do so. Reaching out to a nearby tree branch with his left hand, he'd grip it as he used it as a means of physical support. [/style][/center]
[style=width: 350px; font-family: times new roman; font-size: 12px; padding: 5px; text-align: justify;][style=float: right; margin-left: 8px;]"Well, nice to meet ya Seigen boyo'! My names' Sebastian Alphonse Clave, one of the two leaders from Takigakure! Ever been around them parts?" The latter was unlikely, visitors and travelers had rarely visited the village prior to the wars, but now that they had happened not a single one had come. That was except for the returning villagers upon Takigakure's restoration. Using his free hand to rub his clean shaven face, Sebastian glanced over the surrounding area once more....it could be useful to spread his influence to the clouds as well...If all went well both Mist and Cloud would support him simultaneously...
Tapping his chin he'd retrieve his wallet from his pocket before flipping it open to show his shinobi id to the child. "Proof is obviously required right? Otherwise I might just sound like a wandering nut trying to falsely use a title for self-gain!"
[/b] Once ample time for viewing had ran it's course, he'd flip it shut and slide it back into his pocket where his hand once again stayed. "Now, with proof out of the way. Would you mind taking me to the village? I had visited this land once before, months back, but was unlucky as to even find a single clue to lead me in the right direction of the village. And with a third shinobi war no doubt on the horizon, urgency to meet your leader is required above all else, my people need the support of a major village."[/b] [/style][/center]
[style=width: 350px; font-family: times new roman; font-size: 12px; padding: 5px; text-align: justify;][style=float: right; margin-left: 8px;]The boy's youthful reaction and response surprised Sebastian for quite a few reasons. Why as he so welcoming of an uninvited intrusion? Why was he out training alone, when training with others how one truly grew more powerful,? Why was his guard so down during the current times of border-line war? But, perhaps Sebastian already knew the answers to the questions and simply wanted to wonder for once. Nonetheless, Sebastian took the boy's energy and joy in as a warm recovery of the rather dull norm. So he mere chuckled as he nodded, his teeth glaring in the few beams of sun light as his wickedly indecent grin exposed them.
"KUKUKUKU! It does, it really does boyo! And well that's quite shocking, most outside of it and your age couldn't hit the long side of a village gate! KUKUKUKU!"
And as he glanced about his attire, he continued to nod. But, then again when was such a style not foreign outside a tower of intellectual business? Though he could also look like one of the prominent Yakuza that still resided in Kirigakure...mostly at least. But, the boy was ignorant enough to miss his clothing's origin. Shrugging his shoulders he nodded a few more times. "True, boy, true...I just prefer a higher class of attire, it's just the taste that soothes my wanting pallet!"[/b] And as he slid his right hand into his pants pocket, he spoke again. "But, I would bet fifty thousand ryo that you hail from the Clouds right? Y'know, the shinobi village in the heavens?!"[/b] [/style][/center]
[style=width: 350px; font-family: times new roman; font-size: 12px; padding: 5px; text-align: justify;][style=float: right; margin-left: 8px;]The carbon Clave moved from Mizu no Kuni's chain of islands all across the lands, until it reached the daunting Kaminari no Kuni. The high altitudes did little to strain his lungs which were phantom like already one could say. Climbing pillars of earth that seemed to stretch on through Heaven itself, he'd peer about the lands before continuing on until he found a different sort of scenery. An area with wet trees, undergrowth and the like almost seemed jungle or slightly swamp like. The original's visit had shown none of this, then again he had only been there for a short while before moving on elsewhere. But, now there was something beautiful to find, he just could feel it.
And as he moved with the grace of a mute shadow, he made his way through the brush and various trees. Until he was about seven meters from an area where another's existence came to his notice. Watching the young, perhaps a Cloud shinobi, throwing silver slivers at his apparent target, he couldn't help, but chuckle. Perhaps the boy trained in similar arts that he himself knew. Pulling two shuriken from his pouch he'd let them fly with ferocity surely matched only by a God's, that they hit their targets. Hitting the bark at an angle that they uprooted the senbon and pinned them with their sides to the tree, he awaited the boy's reaction.
Being called out to show himself, so did he oblige the boy. Leaping from his perch and out into the open, he'd grin, his arms folded. "Good aim, good aim. Do you train in the Shageki-ha arts?"
Keikokyori (Distance Training) Rank: D, C, B, A, S. Type: Passive. Range: 0 – 50 meters. Handseals: - Chakra:: - Special: This ability only increases the range and accuracy of projectiles. They do not inflict more damage, nor travel any faster through the air.
D: May throw any weapon up to 10 meters, with 100% accuracy. C: May throw any weapon up to 20 meters, with 100% accuracy. B: May throw any weapon up to 30 meters, with 100% accuracy. A: May throw any weapon up to 40 meters, with 100% accuracy. S: May throw any weapon up to 50 meters, with 100% accuracy.
Description: Although all shinobi are competent with weapons, and can throw them far with impressive accuracy, none can compare to those who practice Shageki-ha. Thanks to extensive training, the range of their projectiles is increased, with no loss of accuracy. Domain: Shageki-ha.
[style=width: 350px; font-family: times new roman; font-size: 12px; padding: 5px; text-align: justify;][style=float: right; margin-left: 8px;]As he made his way around the immediate area, did one hand seal come to fruition as Sebastian deemed it honest that two could traverse twice as much land...Obviously. But, as his chakra split and his other half dashed away into the country side, Sebastian remained at all times ten meters from the open five by five open area which was currently to his left as he continued to make a simple circle around it. Rubbing the back of his neck he felt himself losing patience, but he new it was a necessity and this was the proper way to tame it...as well as to train it.
[style=width: 350px; font-family: times new roman; font-size: 12px; padding: 5px; text-align: justify;][style=float: right; margin-left: 8px;]
Minutes passed, several even and Sebastian Clave, one of the longest living members of the village was still unapproached. Even as one half of it's leaders, what a disgrace this was! And as the tenth minute passed a single full body twitch took place about Sebastian's form before his veins stressed themselves and bulged, nigh all of them becoming instantly visible as his face crunched together in a diabolical expression. Anger had taken him over as he flexed every muscle he could to avoid going into a full mindless rage. Hunching over as he spat with anger, he barked at the gates, guards surely remaining behind their safety.
"OPEN THE FUCKING GATES YOU PIGS! I AM ONE OF YOUR LEADERS, I'LL HAVE YOUR FUCKING HEADS FOR THIS IF YOU DON'T LISTEN TO ORDERS! NOW YOU BETTER LISTEN BEFORE I REALLY GET PISSED OFF!"
Saliva fell form his lips as his final words left him and he remained hunched over breathing heavily. It was as if the weight of the world had fell upon his shoulders, well at least he figured the sensation was the same as holding back losing his mind to rage...And attacking the gates and sending them into oblivion as he raged on to those who chose to press him to such extremes. Good help had always been hard to be find, but had such disgrace filled the village? Or was it some game fixed by his little brother...Oh if he was involved, Sebastian would do more than put him in time out facing the corner! [/style][/center]
[style=width: 350px; font-family: times new roman; font-size: 12px; padding: 5px; text-align: justify;][style=float: right; margin-left: 8px;]Chuckling at what the man had to say next, Clave merely shrugged his shoulders as he replied instantly. "A man and a boy cannot fend off an entire war by themselves, to think otherwise would be a fool's mistake."
[/b] Folding his arms as he waited for him to leave, he'd straighten his posture when he paused before continuing on, speaking a last sentence. Lord? Kukuku, oooh what a mindful one. "Nothing at all, Jōnin Hanchō of The Mist..."[/b] Nodding to the man with respect, he'd take back to the heavy mist, though he'd stay within the area as to be found more easily. Though he couldn't help the urge to learn more about the land while he waited for a message to be returned. [/style][/center]
[style=width: 350px; font-family: times new roman; font-size: 12px; padding: 5px; text-align: justify;][style=float: right; margin-left: 8px;]Tilting his head slightly to the left he'd take his turn of listening and watching the other man as he began to word his own next response. It was quite boring to say the least, but he remained active by finally lowering his arms, his cloak wrapping around his form once more, though the front remained open enough to show he meant no harm. And as he listened to the man speak on how Kirigakure was a peaceful village he couldn't help, but eternally chuckle within the confines of his mind. Kirigakure had never had peace, save for perhaps when Masumi lead her mist ninja before she joined the man known as Kouketsu to start the 2nd shinobi war...This one had an odd view on things, but to each their own.
And now prepared to respond to the man's words he began to explain what he feared for Takigakure. "Well, with war breaking out once more and the mighty seeking an easy victory will surely attack the lesser countries once again, and with bijuu running rampant as well as supposed jinchuuriki...It's safe to presume me and my little brother won't be able to save our village by ourselves...Especially since the Sanbi's gifted chakra left us during the reconstruction of our village." The latter of his words irritated him, the sour memory of losing such power was highly irritating, but there were other more pressing matters to attend to. [/style]
[style=width: 350px; font-family: times new roman; font-size: 12px; padding: 5px; text-align: justify;][style=float: right; margin-left: 8px;]Watching the smaller individual he'd continue to wait for his response before it came...And like a waterfall crashing upon stones below, Clave internally cringed. It had been expected he'd be refused, after all war was rising once more and with that few to none were trusted now. Tilting his head he'd let the man continue, though an expression of agonizing confusion covered his face as his own next response began to plot itself properly. But, then the man spoke of his own name, rank, and village...Yet, his first response had already been prepared.
"Hattori, was it?...If I am indeed barred from entering without prior plans being set in stone...Then I can simply wait while you deliver my message to him, yes?"
With his grin returning he'd slowly lift his cloak so it became more of a cape, only a little hanging from his shoulders, reveling his single Oinin Demon Claw gauntlet, as well as his scrolls, shinobi pouch, etc. And now he was at the disadvantage of being attacked with his enemy knowing his gear...Yet, Clave had planned on this and so he held his cloak up with his massive arms so that it covered his forearms, leaving his hands to keep it steady and up, all the while pointing them at the man, which also meant his demon claw gauntlet..."I have nothing to hide, it might be the time of war, but I simply seek an audience with the Mizukage, your leader...As I fear if war reaches the lesser countries and villages once more, there won't be anything left standing."[/b] [/style][/center]
