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.
Footprints left embedded in the dirt marked the trail that Esei left while he was walking towards his meeting spot with his sensei. The air was dry, like always in Kusagakure. The blue haired ninja had just left a meeting with Blanche which they talked about a mission to infiltrate Sunagakure. This was something the Uchiha had yet to accomplish in his life, so, he decided to ask Kouketsu for a quick meeting so he could teach him a few more things that would help him along the way.
Esei made his way to the center of the endless forest which showed no evidence of them being here before because of the fact the endless forest grows back so quickly. Which meant the two of them could go all out and destroy most of the trees surrounding them and in a week or two they'd be back to normal. As he approached the center of the forest he made a bird noise with his hand to alert the fellow Uchiha of his presence.
"Alright... is that all?" Esei had been listening intently from the start and jotting the information down in his mind. She wanted the two Uchiha to sneak into Sunagakure and basically investigate the entire area while looking for someone known as Beppin. "When do you want us to depart?" He questioned, seeing if he had the time to visit Kouketsu and get a quick lesson in before he left.
I'm using the 1800 xp that I would have from removing all of the fire techniques and use them on lightning techniques. All the lightning techs equal 1800 xp
Sutangan no Jutsu (Limb Stunning Technique) Rank: C Range: Close (0m ~ 5m) Type: Offensive Handseals: 4 Chakra Consumption: Mid
The electric influence that exists over the human body and its muscles allows one to control the later through unconventional methods, including through the means of chakra. After charging a small electric shock in the user’s hands, one can approach their victim and place the charged hand onto a limb or muscle on their body, unleashing the pent up shock and rendering the aforementioned target useless for the rest of the turn. Although simple, it’s highly effective when the user is faster than the victim, and can outmaneuver them as they strike. Also highly effective for keeping captives in place!
Note: If used on a person’s head, they will be knocked out for a single post. Limbs are numbed for a whole turn. Stunning effect cannot be stacked. The user must touch the victim with their hand to achieve the desired effects.
Matoudai Zeusu (Strike of Zeus) Rank: C Range: Close (0m ~ 5m), Mid (5m ~ 10m) Type: Offensive Handseals: 6 Chakra Consumption: Mid
Named after the fabled imaginary leader of the sky and thunder, this technique allows the user to feel like Zeus himself as they summon a tight bolt of electricity in their hand, similar to a javelin, so that they could throw it with appeasing accuracy. The bolt will move through the sky quite fast, and carries deadly accuracy in the right hands. Upon making contact with the target, it immediately bursts into a vertical cylinder storm that surrounds the victim and delivers a plethora of constant shock damage.
Jibashiri (Earth Flash) Rank: C Range: Close (0m ~ 5m), Mid (5m ~ 10m) Type: Offensive Handseals: 4 Chakra Consumption: Mid
Raiton- Jibashiri is a Ninjutsu utilizing the Lightning Element. After soaking the ground/opponent either with a Suiton technique or a conductive surface, the user will charge their palms with electricity and unleash the current into the ground. It will run along the earth and towards the opponent in order to shock them.
Purazuma Booru (Plasma Ball Technique) Rank: C Range: Close (0m ~ 5m) Type: Defensive Handseals: 8 Chakra Consumption: x2 Mid
A highly strategic raiton jutsu, the Plasma Ball allows the user to create a thick sphere of Raiton around their body, able to shock anyone that comes in contact with it immediately. Though no other jutsu can be cast while sustaining the shield, it makes up for it by becoming an ‘ultimate’ shield of sorts from regular, simple techniques and attacks.
Mekurumeku (Blind Flash) Rank: C Range: Close (0m ~ 5m), Mid (5m ~ 10m) Type: Supplementary Handseals: 5 Chakra Consumption:
A basic yet effective Raiton technique, the user focuses a bit of chakra all over their body, letting the lightning gather and then quickly exploding, effectively providing a blinding light that leaves all within the range blind. Useful for disorientation and quick get-aways.
Raikyuu (Lightning Ball) Rank: C Range: Close (0m ~ 5m), Mid (5m ~ 10m) Type: Offensive Handseals: 4 Chakra Consumption: Mid; x2 Mid
A very simple and effective Raiton technique known throughout, the user either takes twin weaponry or their own appendages, focuses their chakra into their center, and forms a ball of pure lightning. This newly formed threat can either be smashed into an opponent’s face, or tossed from a nearby distance. Repetitive exposure to the shocking has been known to leave its victims stunned.
Danpen Inazuma (Shooting Thunder) Rank: C Range: Close (0m ~ 5m), Mid (0m ~ 5m) Type: Offensive Handseals: - Chakra Consumption: Mid
Meant more as a reactionary technique than a main avenue of offense, this jutsu allows the user to essentially shoot out small lightning bolts from a free hand to anyone within a small range. This requires no seals to conjure, and can be shot out from one’s appendage during the most heated of combat. The damage is light and the bolts shoot off in a relatively straight line, at rapid speeds.
Hiraishin (Sparking Electric Needle) Rank: C Range: Close (0m ~ 5m) Type: Offensive Handseals: 4 Chakra Consumption: Mid
Raiton- Hiraishin is a Ninjutsu utilizing the Lightning Element. After coming into physical contact with the opponent, the ninja can then raise their arm into the air and gather electricity. A bolt of electricity can then be used to travel through the user’s body and into the opponent’s body in order to paralyze them.
Eshaku Raikou (Lightning Bow) Rank: C Range: Mid (5m ~ 10m), Far (10m+) Type: Offensive Handseals: 4 Chakra Consumption: Mid to cast, low per arrow afterwards
After performing the needed handseals, the user will wave both arms through the air, leaving Raiton chakra behind in the shape of bow and arrow. The lightning arrow can then be shot at an opponent and stun them from afar. By taking extra time to focus their energy, the arrow can be re-shaped for distance, rather than power.
Kaminari Shibari (Thunder Binding) Rank: B Range: Close (0m ~ 5m) Type: Supplementary Handseals: 9 Chakra Consumption: High
Raiton • Kaminari Shibari is a Ninjutsu utilizing the Lightning Element. The use will call down three bolts of lightning that will then implant into the ground in a triangular shape around their opponent. These Raiton infused pieces will then create electrified fields between themselves to form a triangular shaped prison. The field can be penetrated by a more powerful Wind Element infused weapon or a jutsu of stronger force.
Ichiren Inazuma (Chain Lightning) Rank: B Range: Close (0m ~ 5m), Mid (5m ~ 10m), Far (10m+) Type: Offensive Handseals: 12 Chakra Consumption: High
An advanced version of ‘Shooting Thunder,' the Chain of Lightning allows the user to pass strong currents of lightning from victim to victim, up to three, within a thirty meter radius. The user outstretches their hands, so that the energy focusing within is displaced rapidly towards their target. Once they are hit, the victims are paralyzed and helpless, and the bolt then proceeds to jump and hit anyone else within range. Excellent when outnumbered, though one must use it with care, for it takes a great toll on the user’s chakra pool.
Karasuhebi no Jutsu (Shocking Snake Technique) Rank: B Range: Close (0m ~ 5m), Mid (5m ~ 10m) Type: Offensive Handseals: 8 Chakra Consumption: High
Through their talents in the Raiton release, the user is allowed to use their chakra to manifest a snake that will do their bidding. This snake is made comprised of pure lightning, and has advanced intellect of its own. It can communicate with the user mentally and follow orders well. This snake is useful for quick gashing and shocking attacks, and if one can manage to coil around the user, the equivalent of a strong shock courses through their body whole, constricting and shocking.
Note: Upon latching onto the victim, the snake can deliver shocks rendering the captured area numb for the entire time the snake is caught on. The duration this snake is "usable" is two post.
Chidori (One Thousand Birds) Rank: A Range: Close (0m ~ 5m) Type: Offensive Handseals: 3 Chakra Consumption: High
One of the rare techniques within the shinobi world involving both shape and nature manipulation, Chidori is a Raiton based ninjutsu developed for the purpose of ensured assassination purposes. Activating the body to focus chakra to the hand, the user's hand become enveloped by an electrical force. This force is their chakra altered in nature to an electrical current. By altering the shape of the force, similar to an electrical discharge, they can decide the power and range of the attack. After concentrating all the chakra into the arm, the user rushes forward in order to use the power of the thrust from the chakra to pierce any object with the extended forearm. Due to the high speed, the force emits a sound like a thousand birds chirping which gave the technique its name.
Note: Pierces through barriers 'A' rank and below, and instantly paralyzes the victim's body upon impact for the remainder of the turn it was used, presuming the strike doesn't kill the victim.
Chidori Nagashi (Thousand Birds Current) Rank: A Range: Close (0m ~ 5m) Type: Offensive Handseals: - Chakra Consumption: High
The first variation of Chidori involves the displacement of the concentrated electrical currents all across the user's surroundings. Instead of merely focusing the electrical force to a specific point on their body, the user is now able to extend it outside of their body in general and through objects which they are holding. This allows the user to create a protective zone of electricity around their perimeter, which can shock and immobilize their foes, presumably by attacking their nervous system. When using this attack on a great number of enemies at once, it can effectively double as an instant defence. The body of the person touched by the Chidori will misinterpret the lightning nature as "electrical signals from the nerves", making its muscles contract. This causes the body to involuntarily go stiff, while at the same time receives damage. Best of all, this attack can also be channelled through the ground to increase the range of the attack.
Note: This technique is capable of paralyzing multiple opponents simultaneously (up to a maximum of three) for one full turn. Despite being raiton based, this technique is somewhat slower than the rest, making it relatively easy to evade it (more so due to the fact it simply covers the ground. This technique can also be applied to a weapon in order to dramatically increase its cutting strength. The user must first cast chidori in order to use this technique.
Chidori Eisou (Thousand Birds Sharp Spear) Rank: A Range: Close (0m ~ 5m), Mid (5m ~ 10m) Type: Offensive Handseals: - Chakra Consumption: High
The second variation of Chidori involves a similar extension of the original charge, but this time, in a more concentrated, linear fashion. On a whim the user is able to shape their Raiton Chakra to form an extending spear of pure lightning, aiming to pierce whatever it is they are aiming at. The best part? This spear takes on Chidori's characteristics, including it's ability to cut through anything which stands in its path, allowing the lightning sword to strike its target with ease. Finally, this variation is similar to Chidori Nagashi in that it causes the target to go numb from the excessive electrical charge.
Chidori Senbon (Thousand Birds Needles) Rank: A Range: Close (0m ~ 5m), Mid (5m ~ 10m) Type: Offensive Handseals: – Chakra Consumption: High
The final Chidori variation is, as its name implies, a fully projectile version of the lightning discharge. Once the user summons their Chidori, they are able to further shape the elemental nature to form ten small, sharp senbon. Sized like normal senbon, these needles take on Chidori's characteristics, including it's ability to cut through most anything which stands in its path, and shock everything in its wake. Finally, upon impact, each senbon lets loose the full electrical potential encased within on their target.
Raigeki no Yoroi (Lightning Strike Armor) Rank: A Range: Close (0m ~ 5m) Type: Defensive; Supplementary Handseals: 6 Chakra Consumption: High to cast, mid to sustain
A defensive technique, the Yoroi technique is as its name implies – a set of lightning based armor, which shocks anything that comes in contact with it. After a series of handseals, lightning from the sky showers upon the user, coating them in a bright blue coating. As they glow, all forms of conductors will make victim’s more susceptible to damage, and any taijutsu upon the armor will leave the user’s appendages feeling paralyzed. Excellent when outnumbered, or simply facing an opponent that favors taijutsu.
Note: Under the effects of Raiton no Yoroi the user has an increased speed as well as strength made even stronger by the piercing capabilities of the lightning itself surrounding the user.
Raikiri (Lightning Edge) Rank: S Range: Close (0m ~ 5m) Type: Offensive Handseals: 3 Chakra Consumption: 3x High
Though little has changed in execution, the power of Chidori is now increased even further, no longer able to be withstood by normal means. The penetrative power of the Chidori is increased tremendously, but so too is the chakra cost and the toll it takes on the body. It is a more refined and powerful version of Chidori, Raikiri is capable of piercing through nearly any substance (up to the full length of the user's arm). Presuming the strike is not fatal, this technique paralyzes the opponent for a full turn. On top of this, once learned all Chidori sub-jutsu can be performed under the power of Raikiri.
Note: Other than its penetrative strength, this technique also ha a high probable cost that paralysis will occur to those struck by the full onslaught of this technique.
Oh? Esei's partner for the mission was going to be his past student, also a fellow Uchiha, how fortunate. "Fine" Was the sole response that Sy was going to receive from Esei. He knew just how much Blanche hated to wait especially when she's going through a life crisis. Blanche might not think that the bright haired Uchiha knew much about her, but he sure knew just how to read through her facade. He knew that something had happened with her for her to be acting like such a bitch, usually she's more friendly. Although he hadn't seen her in years he knew something was up, but he wasn't the one to pry, not anymore at least.
"I assumed so..." He said in response to having the ANBU because of Kouketsu's orders, he was just that type of a man. Esei's ears perked up as he listened to everything Blanche had to say. She acted as if he never received a mission before, he knew about everything she had told him. It seemed as if she didn't trust anyone anymore, hopefully that would change sometime soon. "I agree, Lady Kusakage." It had been the first time he ever used such a phrase for her, Esei usually called her by her first name but never with such honorifics. Guess time really did change a person.
Kuchiyose no Jutsu (Summoning Technique) Rank: C Range: Close (0m ~ 5m) Type: Supplementary Contract: DRAGONS Handseals: 3 Chakra Consumption: Low - Massive
A powerful jutsu intended to call forth aid when in dire need, Kuchiyose allows a ninja to summon a a variety of entities and items meant to assist them in a dire situation. From people to animals, to inanimate objects such as weapons and items, these creations come forth out of thin air near-instantly after the seals are done and into the battlefield. Keep in mind each summoning in question requires a previous contract to be filled out. Finally, signing this contract also allows said summoning to be able to reverse summon the human ninja to their own location.
Note: All summons have their own chakra cost, which the user will need to meet in order to bring them forth. In terms of inanimate objects, the user can summon up to ten secondary weapons for a Low amount of chakra (per summoning); on the other hand, they may summon up to five primary weapons for a Mid amount of chakra (per summoning).
Name: Doju. Classification: Junior. Rank: E. Chakra Consumption: Low. Statistics: Offense (0). Defense (0). Speed (0); High x2. Description: Small and lovable, Doju is a small dragon whelp that loves nothing more than good company. The weakest dragon that you could ever possibly summon, Doju is roughly one foot long and half as wide; this cute pup can't even produce so much as an ember of flame. On the contrary, if he tries hard enough, he can make a small ring of smoke that harmlessly fizzles out after several seconds!
"I wonder how much she has changed..." He was referring to Lady Kusakage, someone he hadn't seen in a year or so. No doubt would she be surprised of how much Esei had changed, now sporting bright blue hair while his eyes had turned permanently crimson. He was somewhat surprised he was requested by her, quite ironic as well, as he was going to go see her sometime this week. She probably had a mission for him, that was the only time she ever really needed him. He wondered if Kouketsu told her that he'd trained Esei over the past few years, if not, Esei wasn't going to say a thing. The location that was giving to him was a famous restaurant that was a bit too fancy for Esei's tastes, but if Lady Kusakage requested it he couldn't say no. He pleaded his loyalty to her that very day several years ago and he was going to die a loyal ninja.
Pushing open the doors to the famous restaurant his crimson oculars noticed the woman in seconds, looking as fancy as ever. Walking over to where she was seated he shot her a smirk, his fangs exposing themselves to his leader. "It's been a while huh? You don't look as fat as you did last time I seen you." Esei matured quite a bit over the past few years but cracking jokes on the Kusakage was never going to change, especially since he's been with her through almost everything. "Look just as wonderful as always." Despite the relationship between the two being leader and disciple he still felt as if they connected on a deeper level through all the experiences they shared. Nothing like a lover, more like a close friend, or at least that's how he felt about it. "I assume you have something for me to do?" He queried, pausing to take a look at the multiple ANBU stationed around her section. Real nigga shit.
"Behave? Is she the one following a egotistical pregnant woman? I don't think so." I was starting to regret participating in this entire thing, I'd be better of staying in my bed than following Blanche around listening to her throw fits and not being able to say one word during the meetings. The only thing that I got out of being on this trip was being fed that ONE time when we were at Kumogakure, other than that I just had to deal with her bullshit. I mean, I'm usually an overly optimistic person but I just can't deal with boredom. I thought I was going to participate in some discussions, get into a fight, or maybe go to the hot springs or something. We didn't even have time to stay and look at the attractions back when we were at Kumogakure, this was getting ridiculous.
I was almost tempted to pretend to start crying and storm out of the room, but I didn't want to ruin her little reputation. I also didn't want to get killed on the way back home to Kusagakure, I could only imagine Blanche flipping on me on the way home. Before I got to start any trouble the door opened before me and a large man stood before us. This man was huge, but the first thing that I noticed wasn't his size, but the eye that he possessed. His right eye was that of the Uchiha Clan, the Sharingan, this was getting beyond ridiculous. It seemed as if the Sharingan was being handed out like candy, so many non-Uchiha were now possessing the same eye that me and my family were born with.
My eyes were fixated on the man before me, it looked as if he was a good foot or two taller than me. The aura around him was similar to that of Kouketsu, the father of Blanche's child. I caught the slip of the tongue that the Mizukage accidentally said, he knew who the father was. The air around them was tense, to me anyway. Soon enough, the subject of conversation changed to the recent attack on Kumogakure. Now, it was time to see what this giant had to say about the attack.
Kirigakure seemed a bit depressing to me, but the mist was something that I enjoyed. This was indeed my first time visiting Kirigakure, unfortunately I wouldn't have the time to actually enjoy my stay. I assumed we'd be well on our way shortly after Blanche finished her meeting with the leader of this village. As we weaved through the streets and buildings of this village, I couldn't help but to ponder on how their leader was. I had heard rumors from villagers (in Kusagakure) that he was influenced by one of the nine tailed beasts. What is it with all these kages and possessing the power of one of the many tailed beasts that resided in this wretched world.
As we finally made it to our destination, my head shot up to the sky observing the building that stood before me. It resembled the atrium a bit, but this building had its own markings that were familiar to this village itself. We walked inside the building and began to make our way towards the top floor. Moving in out and of different rooms, making sure we were cleared to move on we finally made it towards his room. We awaited the man to call us in, while I went over to Blanche and whispered "I want to go home."
Now that we were finished with Kumogakure Blanche dragged me along to another village, this time, Kirigakure. Instead of the vacation I originally thought this was going to be, this was slowly turning into more of a drag and I was slowly beginning to want to go home. I'd follow Blanche inside the village with the approval of the gate guards, I couldn't wait to tell Blanche what was on my mind.
Kumogakure had some spectacular sights, especially this little trail that we were currently walking. It was nice to witness with my own two eyes some of the different things that villages did compared to our own. Blanche didn't have the time to take a look at everything and study the halls we were currently walking in, but I did. I had nothing better to do but to look at everything that we passed by. I honestly couldn't complain, other then the fact that my legs were starting to ache everything was going the way I wanted it. No quarrels, no arguments, just easy work for me. This mission was basically a vacation, besides the fact that I could be called to join Blanche at anytime during this little venture.
As we got closer to our destination, the narrow hallway came to a halt as we paused at a pair of doors. Upon opening them, a luring smell came running through the air and hit me in the face. It might have been one of the best things I've ever smelled in my lifetime, just a little hint of it made my mouth water beyond imagination. Wiping away the extra saliva I followed the party into the room, where my eyes were met with luxurious furniture that looked so comfortable to sit on. Noticing a window on the far side I was a bit surprised, for some odd reason I thought we were underground. Branching off in my own direction I picked out a spot for me to sit on, but before doing so I also took off my cloak.
My raven hair perfectly falling into place while my onyx hues looked around the room. Folding my cloak I placed it aside next to the crimson cushion that I proceeded to sit on. "At least I get some food out of this." I thought to myself as I remained seated.
This guy looked so young, but looks could be deceiving. Blanche looked like she was in her twenties, when in reality she was like thirty years old. It's mind blowing what sucking some chakra, and drinking a ton of tea does for the body. I walked behind both of the blonde individuals taking my time and enjoying the scenery. Kumogakure wasn't all bad, all these mountains would prove to be a good place to relax and take some time off if I ever went on vacation. As we walked throughout the village I couldn't help but notice all the stares we were getting from all the civilians, some were positive others felt as if they were killing us in their minds. It didn't seem like Kumogakure really suffered from the attack they received, besides the fact that their leader was murdered, everything else seemed well.
I managed to listen in on the conversation Blanche and Ishitsuru were having. It didn't look like the village knew anything about the masked assailants that came and attacked their village and raikage. What information could you really gather in the midst of the night, while an encounter began and ended so fast. I didn't want them to know who did it, because if they did and Blanche found out then I'd be dragged along to another village. Blanche had a hot temper when it came to her comrades, and if she found out what village did such a deed she'd waste no time in hunting down the suspects, something that I feared dearly.
