The defense forces had arrived early in the morning- the task force members assembling to share various things from information to fuuinjutsu. When all that had been said and done they had shipped off early to their temples. Hayate had been assigned to Temple 2 along with a mysterious man named "Junkai". As the two had traveled they had talked a plenty and within minutes of arriving at their camp had formed a battle plan. The forests would be their ally and the greatest weapon in the fight- but first they had to evacuate the temple.

Heading out camp and moving towards the temple, a small clearing in the forest lead to the northwest entrance. When they arrived, many students would be about it. Upon arrival, Hayate would call out.

"As you are aware annexation forces of Iwagakure and Kirigakure will be arriving here- challenging the freedom of each and every one of you... I beg you for your safety please go inside the temple and stay there." the Raikage would say as he tipped his hat. He would nod to Jukai to help move everyone into the temple and when that was done, he would begin to fortify the area.

He would start by splashing water all over the temple, surrounding grounds, and the foot of the clearing anointing the earth as if it was holy water.

Upon arriving, the Raikage gave a short word on what was going on and what they needed to do. As the man started splashing water about, 'Jukai' started ushering people and and moving them towards the safest possible locations before returning outside. As he emerged, he glanced around as everything was getting wet. "I can only hope the guardian is lurking somewhere already. The joint forces of our opposition should be here anytime I feel." The medic stated while keeping himself decently close to the entrance. He was told the buildings were sturdy, but he pondered how devastated the forest would be after they battle was finished. Certainly wasn't going to be a beautiful sight like it was now.

"Wonder how long will it take the forest to regrow after the damage is done?" He mused allowed while his eyes started to scan the forest for any signs of the aggressors. His ears perking up to try and hear anything over the sound of splashing water.

Nishiki made haste through the trees as he moved towards the western temple with the rest of the team, aiming to just about beat the sun at arrival, moving south from the camp of operations prepared for specifically taking said temple with great spirit and gusto.
As the building was starting to get close and the sun was starting to peak, the boy slowed down and began a safer stealthed approached as the group manoeuvred through the pretty speckled blue forest until it as more clearly in view.
"I think making it rain now would be useful for me... though..." the fox quietly commented as he pondered their first actions, pausing amongst the trees to get a better look.
"Is that man just randomly splashing the temple?" he quietly questioned, looking confused as he turned to look at the others, tilting his head as he did so before focusing more on the temple.

After a moment the young Tsukino also noticed a mysterious cloaked figure step outside wearing a mask of sorts, clearly wishing to hide his identity much like a couple of combatants on their own side, which would probably make it more difficult to figure out who as who and what they might be capable of doing.
Though his mind went to the strange man that was splashing the building and it started to dawn on him that he could be very important indeed, sending a bit of a shiver down his spine as he started to take in who he was looking at.
"Is the Raikage kind of dark skinned with white hair?" he then spoke into his communication fuuin, channeling a tiny speck of chakra as instructed "Often wears I guess some kind of white flak jacket, kind of strong looking?" he continued to ask everyone in shaky hushed tones, feeling like their group had been handed a massive bomb.

With a deep breath Nishiki shook off his nerves and figured no matter who they had to face they still had to give it their all even if they were just a distraction for the Raikage, as such he began to prepare for orders regardless of confirmation or not and pulled out a strange little white doll from his pouch and swiftly flooded it with a bit of chakra before sending it up into the sky where it would cause the weather to turn into rain.
The rain wouldn't really do much but it would aid in the boy's abilities and perhaps even mess up and wash away whatever the water was that Hayate seemed to be creating.
JutsuShow
Suiton • Rainy Day
D-Rank Ninjutsu
The user will channel suiton chakra into a weather doll and send it into the sky at [control] speed, whereupon reaching cloud height the chakra will disperse and cause a light rain to fall for 5 posts within a 10m radius whilst causing the doll to fall back to earth along with it. This rain doesn't do much of anything besides make everything wet just like any ordinary rain and once it has began, attacking the Teru Teru Bozu will not stop it as the chakra is already dispersed into the sky.

Area Awareness
C-Rank Taijutsu Discipline
Nishiki has trained his sense of spatial awareness so that he can not only constantly remain vigilant of what is around him with great skill, but is also able to expand it further so that details of his surrounding environment come to him naturally and easily. This means he can more easily figure out the space he can manoeuvre and generally work in, even in wide areas which is particularly useful for using wide scoping jutsu and kinesis.

Mondai followed Nishiki close by armed with his sword, harpoon, and shield made of samsara thanks to Kosaki. "So what's the approach here? They have already set up shop it seems do we approach or wait for them to leave? Maybe create a distraction?" Mondai wondered as he watched the hooded figure and the current Raikage which Mondai didn't realize until Nishiki pointed it out. Suddenly a heavy feeling of immense pressure overwhelmed him, the feeling was akin to being crushed deep in the ocean pressure.

The rain Jutsu that Nishiki had created could give them an advantage the rain could help obscure vision and sound allowing them to approach closer and set up tactics more safely. Mondai wasn't really the stealthy type he was more a front line fighter he didn't specialize in any way with stealth but an advantage is an advantage even still he opted to stay back and wait for orders instead of recklessly approaching on his own.

Naohiro dropped from the tree canopy to the forest floor beside his comrades, landing quietly in a crouch and motioning everyone to keep low and find cover. So far their approach had gone unnoticed, and he wanted to keep it that way until they knew what lay ahead. Once concealed he glanced each of the men over. During the journey they'd introduced themselves and described their skills to an extent, though how they'd want to approach their mission here, he wasn't yet sure. For now they all seemed eager but cautious, and he agreed with the feeling. He looked at Nishiki and then Mondai as each spoke, then followed their gaze towards the temple.

"Yeah, that's him. Nakajima Hayate." He swore under his breath and watched the distant figure. It had been a gamble to send their squad here without a single bannin, and it looked like the risk hadn't paid off. "That's Kumogakure's strongest ninja. Possibly one of the strongest in the known world." But what was the man doing? From their concealed vantage within the forest he could see the Raikage moving around the temple spraying a seemingly very slow and feeble stream of water all around him. It was slow enough that the group could probably reach the temple before he'd finished covering it, but Naohiro was loathe to charge into such an unknowable situation. A second figure stood near the temple entrance, seemingly idle but certainly alert.

Following Nishiki's lead, Nao channeled a fraction of chakra to his own communication seal. "Naohiro here. Confirmed, we have the Raikage at the Western Tower, with only one other visible defender. They seem to be fortifying the area and standing their guard."
Stopping the flow of chakra and speaking only to his comrades, he continued,
"I can only assume he's trying to spread his chakra all around that temple. We can't approach carelessly. If it were me, preparing to defend against an unknown force with only one ally at my side, that water would be a reactive defense to prevent us approaching unhindered or undetected, or perhaps something that can be controlled directly. Watch out for it." He thought for a moment longer, then nodded. "And I see no students. Our intel reported a busy campus with around four dozen students here..."

He paused, remembering the various briefings over the past few days. The students were supposedly untrained and were to be essentially considered civilians, which meant the likelihood of them lying hidden to ambush his party was slim.

"I'll wager they've either been fully evacuated or are sheltering within the temple, then. If that's true... Then this whole forest is free of civilian targets. It's a perfect battleground for a powerful ninja. And that means we want to be inside that temple. But how...?" He trailed off, musing to himself. Eventually he turned to the squad again, fixing each with a level look.

"I'll be honest with all of you: This is not a fight we can win outright. I don't know who that second man is, but that he's standing alongside the Raikage is reason enough to keep us cautious. We should also expect the temple's local guardian to be here somewhere, perhaps waiting inside in case we breach. If we're lucky, we might be able to keep one or two of these targets occupied for a time, but there's a reasonable chance that some or all of us will fall in the process.

"If any of you wish to retreat back to the camp, this is your best opportunity. There's no shame in it, and no one will think you weak, I promise you that."
He waited for a moment, giving anyone who wished the chance to speak up or act. "For the rest of you, we must move with extreme caution. To begin with I suggest patience. We have at least one high value target ahead of us, and he—they—can't leave without this place becoming vulnerable. Therefore it's in our best interest to delay confrontation as long as possible, because when it comes, it will be swift. Every minute they spend guarding here is another minute our allies can fight without these two in their way.

"But, I also want options, and if nothing else a clearer picture of this area. If any of you have clone techniques, join me. Numbers may be one of our few advantages today."


Returning his attention to the temple and its defenders ahead, he ran through a brisk set of seals and channeled chakra into the air around him. An eddy formed and grew, whipping into a blur of wind that soon took on Naohiro's form. Another quick set of seals followed and Naohiro placed a finger against the clone's mouth and ears, then to his own, drawing a small seal that would allow him to communicate. A moment later the clone had vanished back into the deeper forest away from the temple, keeping low and hidden. He commanded it to begin making its way around the perimeter, avoiding detection and reporting back anything it came across.

Kinomichi had stayed silent while the group traveled and scouted out the Temple. He wasn't one to talk much in the first place but the acknowledgement of the Raikage at their post was enough to draw a single curse from him. The boys lime green eyes narrowed as he stared down the Temple and tried to rack his brain with a plan.

"If...if the forest is evacuated and everyone is in the Temple, we should smoke them out. If we keep the fire away from the campus, it won't damage the Temple itself and any students who pass out we can give medical care afterwards. We can't take the Temple against THE Raikage himself and I doubt they sent some shrimp like us to back him up. The guy has to be at least a jounin." Kinomichi spoke up. "Might be a good idea to see if any of our Sensors can help here to help us get a better assessment of them." Kinomichi channeled a minor amount of chakra to his Link seal and began to speak.

"If possible, could we please get a Sensor to confirm the strength of the second shinobi here?" Kinomichi requested over the comms before channeling some chakra and a clone appeared next to him. The flame clone nodded to the boy before taking off in the opposite direction of Naohiro's Fuuton clone.

Hayate had been sending crashing waves all over the area round the temple for some time now... only for a slight tickle to appear on the back of his neck- then a few more tickles. His sensory had picked up on something around him... he turned around in the direction of the disturbance channeling into himself as he tried to get a better feel for the people approaching- undoubtedly foes. And also oddly noticed rain in front of the treeline... Localized rain.

Feeling for the chakra signals he assessed them to be quite weaker than his ally and himself just based on size alone. Instinctively, he pressed his hands together ready to summon the island turtle on the trees and crush whoever sought refuge there- but his conscience tugged at his heart. Likely the chakra signatures he found belonged to children.

"Jukai dearest, we have company. Oh- and temple 2 has some folks shown up, non-identified yet. Some other ones casing the perimeter away from here it seems." he'd mention over the comms.

Holding his ground but moving as close as he could without going into the rain, he'd pace around and draw a Fuma shuriken in each hand maintaining an heir of "looking for the opponent" as if he did not have sensory. From the slightly closer range he could accurately surmise which trees some of them were hiding behind- he would aim for the biggest chakra signature first (Nishiki).

He channeled chakra into each hand- and faced purposely in the wrong direction.

"Look, I can only guess you are a bunch of kids from the non-direct encounter." he would say, as he channeled into his hands, wind forming around each of the fuma shuriken.

"So uh... I really don't wanna hurt you guys..." he'd say as he suddenly squared his foot work, his stance changing. He'd spin around rapidly on his heels tossing both fuma shuriken like discuses towards either side of the tree Nishiki would be on.

"Not too bad anyways..." he'd shout.

He waited to see if Nishiki would move. If he would, he would redirect the first shuriken to strike, and then do the same with the second moments after if he tried to dodge the first one. Dodges tended to put people off-guard for another well-planned strile.
USEDShow
Lightning’s Shadow • Rolling Thunder
B-Rank Stance Taijutsu
By taking a wide footed stance, each foot shoulder-length apart, Hayate will put himself in a stance that is in-conducive to moving fast (-9 Speed) however allows him to focus a tremendous amount of energy and strength into his upper body, allowing him to make abnormally potent movements with his upper body. (+9 Strength)

Fuuton • Redirection
D-Rank Ninjutsu
By holding a projectile in his hand and channeling chakra into it, Hayate infuses it with wind energy. He will then throw the projectile. At anytime during the course of the projectiles trajectory, he will be able to change it's direction by up to 90 degrees once with no drop in momentum on the projectiles part via chakra kai. This technique only lasts one post. The fuuton passive is not applied in this technique.

*[Basic Jutsu • Chakra Kai]
D-Ranked Ninjutsu
A jutsu used with the purpose of activating seals and a range of devices and weapons, this technique begins with a single handseal. Once this has been performed, the user will focus a dollop of their chakra into what they are looking to activate in order to complete the task. Seals activated with this technique must be within 10 meters of the user's position.

Scanning the treeline, Saigo watched for any major disturbances that might give away the approach of some attacking force. Bird sign was normal and nothing seemed too terrible out of place, but the pop shower turned his gaze skyward for a moment. The voice of Hayate drew his attention and he looked to the man and heard him in his ear from the communication Fuuin which was a bit surreal given he was so close by. "Dearest? Are we going steady now? Should I call you sweet roll or sugar daddy? I feel like you'd get stolen if you were a sweet roll.... happens all too often to me." Jukai stated plainly before watching the man pull out a pair of rather sizeable shuriken and talk to whomever was hiding in the trees. 'Must have been using some kind of sensory technique, I should have thought of that. Still, might be best to finish this quickly.'

As he finished thinking this, Saigo raised a hand up, his fingers forming a knife hand as he called out to Hayate. "I recommend not stepping to the side." the masked doctor stated while his chakra started funnel from his core up through his arm and into his hand. As the chakra flared to life around the appendage, he watched the treeline as Hayate threw his weapons into the forest. While Saigo didn't have eyes on the 'kids' as Hayate put it, he could use the shuriken to guess their general location as the chakra funneling into his hand burst skyward, flaring out into a 10 meter wide, 80 meter tall blade of chakra. "Don't let this touch you Hayate, it'll not be fun."

With his last warning dealt to his partner, Saigo swung his arm straight down towards the treeline where the shuriken went. The massive chakra scalpel descended upon the spot that Hayate threw the shuriken. The Doctor was oblivious to their exact location let alone the clones in the woods, so this was merely a crap shoot moment for him.

Jutsu UsedShow
[Iijutsu • Zantetsuken]
S-Ranked Ninjutsu
A more extreme version of *[Iijutsu • Elongated Chakra Scalpel], this techniques was devised to handle large groups or powerful opponents from a distance. Raising his hand above his head, Saigo will channel chakra into his hand and craft a massive chakra scalpel that towers over the Doctor. This towering chakra scalpel has a length of 80 meters and a width of 10 meters as it flares out from Saigo's hand. Instead of vanishing after it's use, this technique will linger so long as Saigo is feeding chakra into it, allowing him to make wide swings and decimate large numbers of individuals with ease from a distance.

As Mondai arrived he started asking what their best move was and whether they should distract their enemies or not, whilst Naohiro confirmed that the tanned man did indeed appear to be the Raikage, which was very splendid indeed. As for what the most powerful man in Kumogakure was doing, it didn't seem the group could really grasp it but from certain angles it actually seemed like the water may have been more golden in colour so something definitely seemed off about it.

The team started to speculate further on what to do and even the quiet kid spoke up and suggested that maybe they could somehow get to the temple and smoke all the students out and then also suggested they could do with a sensor whilst their leader created a clone in attempt to scout further.
However it all seemed like naught as Hayate suddenly started to walked vaguely in their direction as if looking around but then called out to them, claiming he did not wish to hurt them too badly before pulling out massive fuma shuriken.

"He's going to attack" Nishiki commented "Perhaps both" he then added as he tried to take in what the masked figure was doing also, which was seemingly raising his arm by the looks of things with a hint of channelling happening.
"Get ready!" he called as the Raikage suddenly spun round and chucked his shuriken, though it seemed they headed directly for Nishiki's own spot which suggested he could actually detect them somehow.
"Sensory!?" the boy cried out, fully alert now as the shuriken swooped round towards him.

As the weapons came he could feel them and prepared himself, dodging left first aiming to duck under the shuriken in that direction only to suddenly feel the massive swing of a powerful blade also vaguely in his direction just as one of the shuriken suddenly changed directions.
"Damn!" the fox blurted further as he swiftly moved to leap far across in his dash in time with the first shuriken's change of direction only for the second shuriken to then also shift and come right at him.
Noting the vibrations from the motion of the second shuriken Nishiki managed to twist and spin in the air, just about avoiding it, feeling the movement of the blades wash over him upon doing so, as he continued to propel away from he spot as fast as he could and perform a recovery roll to swiftly get back to his feet with his heart beating fast from the narrow escape.
"This is nuts!" he then proclaimed as he came out of his seemingly near miraculous dodge, though it appeared he was barely keeping up with the duo's attacks just enough no doubt thanks in part to his ability to feel their vibrations from their movements.

It was all quite a lot and the Tsukino wasn't sure if he was lucky or if the foes were truly not taking things absolutely seriously just yet, which if they weren't then they could ramp things up as they pleased which put a bit of fear into the boy for sure.

Dashing to the left through the trees a faint magenta glow had shone around Nishiki with the signs of his channelling before a burst of lightning arced around his body in the form of an eerie armour, which the Tsukino hoped would deflect any further projectiles as he now focused more on the strange giant blade that crashed through quite the number of trees around where he stood mere moments ago.
Though it all felt very defensive and lackluster compared to the S-Ranks before them which was worrying, as such the Jinchuuriki tried to pull an arc of lightning from his own armour and hold it with his kinesis as he passed between the trees hoping to perhaps get a clear shot at the Raikage or something
JutsuShow
Leap
D-Rank Taijutsu Manoeuvre
Nishiki will simply propel himself forwards with a high leap into the air, typically aimed to dodge over an obstacle or opponent.

Flexibility
D-Rank Discipline
Nishiki has trained his body to be rather flexible and able to bend and contort in rather odd and peculiar ways which gives him some extra freedom of movement and allows him to easily do some strange things.

Grand Balance
D-Rank Discipline
Nishiki has trained himself to have great balance in many different kinds of situations, allowing himself to easily define his own centre of gravity so that he can manoeuvre himself with ease with toppling over. This means he can bend way low to the ground, outstretch his limbs in weird angles or almost seem to fall forwards on his tiptoes and still be fine.

Aerobatics
D-Ranked Taijutsu Discipline
Hefty bending exercises have lead the user to be able to contort, and otherwise control, their body while under abnormal situations. Namely being able to use momentum to better dodge mid-air, and allowing great feats of taijutsu that normally require ones feet planted firmly on the ground.

Rolling Recovery
D-Rank Taijutsu Manoeuvre
Nishiki will move into a roll from a prone position, typically as he lands to quickly get back to his feet, shaving off any time he would be laid on the ground, helping protect from crash landings and to move out of dangerous positions.

Raiton • Crackling Ghostly Aura
A-Ranked Raiton Jutsu
The user channels raiton chakra and causes a surge of lightning to build up around them like a large, glowing aura. This aura spreads across their whole body and spikes out in a wave of fluctuating electricity in a 50cm radius, jumping out to anything that gets within 3m.
This lightning moves in crackling arcs at [control] speed and shocks and deflects at [control] strength for 4 posts, all whilst making those within appear more like a ghostly figure due to all the glow.

*[Levitakinesis]
A-rank Ninjutsu
Having achieved notable mastery over Raiton, the user is capable of shaping, directing, and manipulating existing bodies of the element without the need of hand seals or an existing technique. The range at which the user can manipulate the element is equal to the user's control times 2 metres. While the user can freely manipulate this element, they cannot produce the element naturally.

Mondai stood and await their actions until out of nowhere Nishiki warned that the raikage was attacking. Mondai's muscles tensed up at the thought and he prepared himself, suddenly a Fuma shuriken at blinding speeds burst trough trees Mondai jumped back instead of dodging rapidly as the large Shuriken was after Nishiki instead he jumped on his back and crawled away slowly. Mondai kept his shield covering his lower mouth and his upper legs to protect himself until he noticed the giant scalpel-like structure come crashing towards him upon doing realizing this Mondai rolled of towards his side and got back to his feet and sprinted as fast as he could to narrowly avoid the giant structure of surgical death.

" This is some bloody bullshit!? What the hell do we do!? I got no ranged options and I can't throw this harpoon that far!" he shouted in a concerned voice wondering what kind of chances they had against the kage and the hooded figure. Unless something major distracted them or reinforcements swopped in they stood no chance. Nishiki retaliated but only not to seem weak which was a testament to their opposition's power, an illusion of power would have to be upheld and the temple would be the only thing that would dissuade their foes from charging in attacking directly. A major decision would have to be made and one wrong decision could either lead to a longer life or death...

Naohiro nodded to Kinomichi's suggestions; it seemed they were thinking along the same lines. The Iwagakure ninja was young, but he thought well, and wasn't nearly as intimidated as Nao would've expected given their situation. He opened his mouth to reply only for the words to die on his lips as the Raikage, still by the temple, hesitated and turned directly towards them. The man paused just for a moment before moving their way.
Nao watched him approach, pondering the sudden movement. The man had been facing away, so it wasn't that they'd been seen. Hearing seemed unlikely too, given the distance and their conscious effort to stay quiet. What then? Scent? Fuuinjutsu wards? Sensory techniques? He shook his head as their opponent got closer; how he'd found them didn't matter right this moment, only that he had. This is bad.

"We've alerted them somehow. Spread out, keep your distance, and be ready to move," he ordered. Trying to remain hidden, he shifted his own position and reached a hand up to his communication seal. He was just about to channel chakra to it but hesitated when the Raikage called out.

"Look, I can only guess you are a bunch of kids from the non-direct encounter. So uh... I really don't wanna hurt you guys..." Naohiro raised an eyebrow. The twin fuma shuriken in the kage's hands, and his ally approaching from behind with arm raised as if to fire something into the sky, suggested otherwise. Nishiki evidently agreed. But, if the two enemy shinobi just wanted to negotia—Shit!

He swore at the same time as Nishiki's panicked shout. Naohiro's whole body tensed as the two shuriken went whistling into the air, arcing through the trees towards them too fast for his eyes to follow. Reacting on instinct alone he threw himself back and to the right. Mid-leap he hooked a kunai from a thigh-pouch with his little finger and launched it in one smooth motion towards where he guessed the fuma shuriken would be coming from, hoping to strike one mid-air and send it off course. Given the feeble speed of his throw in comparison it was perhaps a futile attempt. Unfortunately the shuriken came in at angles, curving around the more direct path of his own throw. His weapon instead hit a tree with a disappointing thock.

He skidded to the ground and rolled just as a vast wall of energy slammed down towards their group, leaving a shimmering wall nearby to his left. Strangely nothing within the field seemed to be damaged—whatever it was, it phased cleanly through trees and ground alike without any sign of disturbance. He rolled away from it nontheless, scrambling to his feet, and running to the right. The fact he was still alive suggested that neither attack had been specifically aimed at him, but he didn't intend to remain so easy a target for whatever might come next.

Thinking quickly as he moved, he snatched three smoke bombs from a pocket at his waist and tossed them through the trees towards their attackers, detonating them mid-air to form a thick smokescreen between the two parties. Their earlier detection told him it wouldn't stop their attackers, but any edge here would be valuable. Simultaneously he resumed channeling a spark of chakra to his communication seal.
"Temple 2, we've been engaged! We need support, now!" He skidded behind cover for a moment and glanced around to check on his comrades. He spotted Nishiki some distance away to his left, already glowing with a technique of his own, and Mondai scrabbling back to his feet. Where was Kinomichi? "Squad four, stay on the move, don't bunch up!"

As soon as the communication was done he began weaving handseals, ducking between cover as he did so, until he released a technique that wrapped him in a swirling vortex of fuuton that raged just above his skin and equipment. While he'd developed the technique for offense initially, in this situation he hoped it'd afford him a little extra protection against whatever was coming. As much as he wanted to conserve his chakra, it'd do him no good if he died here and now.

"That's one hell of a way to 'not want to hurt us'! I expected more integrity from the leader of a great nation!" He called back through the smoke as he completed his technique, hoping to buy his allies a moment to breathe.
UsedShow
[Projectile Whistles]
C-Rank Taijutsu Discipline
The user has attuned their hearing to the sound of things moving through the air. This allows them to hear projectiles flying at them from a general location, even if they can’t see them. This technique is less effective at locating sources in enclosed areas where sounds bounce off walls/doors/windows/etc.

[Foresight]
C-Rank Taijutsu Discipline
Prerequisite: [Perception]

If an incoming projectile is visible to the user, or its trajectory is known, the user is capable of predicting its timing and travel path accurately enough to increase their chances of a successful dodge, such as by sidestepping or twisting at the last moment. This allows the user to maintain their speed and direction of movement while still remaining capable of dodging incoming projectiles effectively. This also works in reverse, allowing the user to maintain their accuracy by estimating trajectories even while they themselves are in motion.

Fuuton • Stormstance forming at 35 speed, 50 strength
B-Rank Fuuton Nintaijutsu
After performing the required seals the user channels chakra across all areas of their body, wrapping themselves in an aura of swirling fuuton at [control] speed that hovers above their skin, apparel, and any held equipment. The aura will bite and slash at anything that contacts the user with [control] strength. Should the user strike a target, the swirling fuuton lends an additional slash at [control] strength following the impact. The aura fades after 8 posts unless released earlier.

The clone took off after Naohiros clone before finally splitting to its opposite, the left, and circling around the temple. As the two defenders were busy with the real shinobi, the clone began to channel before puffing up its chest and releasing a volley of fireballs towards the forest closer to the temple. The fireballs swelled in size and strength due to the additional chakra charged within them before each impacted a tree and set the forest ablaze.

Kinomichi tsk's at the negative replies that the squad got from their allies as the Raikage walked up and began to speak before charging the shuriken he held with an element. Upon seeing the man set his stance, Kinomichi dashed backwards to the far right without waiting to see what was aimed and at who. He had already been a good 15 meters to Nishiki's right and put another 20 meters between them as everything happened. He was glad he did as a massive blade of chakra at came down silently on the trees where Nishiki had been. Not waiting for the blade to come for him, Michi fell backwards 15 meters while channeling. A cloak of fire materialized out of the ambient Katon chakra surrounding him.

The smell of smoke assaulted his nostrils at his face scrunched in confusion. Both the smell of chemical smoke and wood smoke assaulted his nose until he realized it meant his clone had gotten started with its own assignment. He channeled chakra to the fuuin.

"My clone has set the forest on fire on the back end of the Temple. Any Fuuton users keep the coming smoke on the temple. Keep them away from us and smoke them out!" Michi relayed through the comm before channeling and releasing a large fireball which consumed several trees upon impact into the forest on the far right

She couldn't believe her luck, of all the missions she could have been assigned in the defense force she got picked to assist the one person she had actively avoided. The spy thought highly of herself, but knew that whenever she stepped close to him her heart would flutter and her confidence would falter and she hated that, she grit her teeth and slowly lowered her black mask and covered her face, her jacket fit snugly over her hoodie, below she wore cargo pants and tight combat boots; all decked in black. The spy was dressed like a cross between militant and a death shadow thanks to her haunting mask, for she knew that there were a certain Kirigakure ninja out there that knew of her as a fake Kiri ninja.

Hotaru chuckled and shook her head as she listened in what her step-father Kage said, she shook her head at the destruction caused by the duo and watched as the ensuing chaos continued, all the while she began to calculate that they could've dealt with the situation without causing so much harm to the environment. I see that the time in S.T.R.A.T.O.S has thought you nothing... Leave no traces. Hotaru shook her head in disbelief. She began to wonder what these "kids" would do in order to fight someone in the caliber of the Raikage, for she knew that they couldn't take them head on, which would mean that they would either create a diversion or force the students out. "Don't look up at me." Hotaru strained gently enough for the Kage and the mysterious man to hear but not for the surrounding ninjas.

"Oh how the mighty have fallen... To think that you'd go so hard on children instead of focusing on making sure that the students make it out alive." Hotaru mocked the Raikage from her hidden position, she had chosen to deliberately hide by the top of the temple within it's shadows, though she knew that he was one of the few people that could sense her presence before she announced herself.

"Don't you think it's a bit overboard? Isn't there a more subtle way of handling this situation instead of wrecking the entire forest." She chuckled before her eyes turned towards the rising fires. "Yeah, just as I figured. Point me in their direction and I'll try to end this as quickly as possible." Her eyes darted around the treeline, hoping to find any clue as to where they could be located.

Hayate would waste no time following his shuriken- and the second he sensed the opponent dodge the first redirected shuriken he'd flick his hands pulling the residual fuuton off of the redirected shuriken.

Though he had intended to fire a warning shot and test the waters, he was surprised to find the other parties had easily dodged their more than capable attacks. To out maneuver them all the while planting their own seeds of battle showed that the enemy were a bit stronger than he had first decided. If anything, it was also an indicator that they were a threat. While not maybe a threat to him, threats he let survive went onto kill his comrades. They went on to grow stronger and cause more issues. He knew that all to well from the times his misplaced "mercy" has failed him in the civil war.

His attack, from the beginning was a warning shot however the fuuton that encased it had always given him the possibility to use it to finish instead. The man of infinite possibilities never performed a simple action anyways. Everything always had multiple facets to it that would ensure his upper hand.

The wind would flatten out into a long wide blade of wind as it came off the shuriken at either side of the mid-dodge foxman, curving the wind straight into him. The two massive blades of wind moving likely far greater than he could ever dream of would go right for his legs. If they still managed to dodge the giant, massive killer scalpel that didn’t damage or interact with anything but flesh, onto of that, Hayate would have found some pretty serious combatants worthy of a Kage level fight and death.

He felt some other movement beyond the strange one who he believed to be the strongest, however he'd leave that to Junkai. Instead, a voice calling out and the rapid expansion of smoke in the forest from smoke bombs caught his attention. Hayate smirked.

Tchk. It's already over.

Despite the voice calling out to him and goading him he would not respond. If Junkai and him had wanted to kill the opponents they would have already been dead. Choosing to surprise attack in such underwhelming force was in fact a show of mercy far greater than what the enemy would probably give his subordinates and if they failed to see that a Kage half-ass attacking them was mercy, well... That was on them. On the other hand, the group had somehow managed to completely dodge some powerful and fast attacks, even if not the full force of his power. This, he deduced, was indicative that his sensory readout was not all that accurate and among them were some powerful targets.

At full speed he rocketed forward for the person's voice wasting no time between his attack with wind- bolts of lightning flying off his feet. The smoke was a nice touch, but he didn't need his eyes to find the one who caused it. As he rocketed closer in a split second he'd notice the smoke distorting around the target- no doubt some sort of wind or energy shield that was rotating. He'd take his bet it was air- which as all the better because naturally his chakra was reverse and his lightning beat wind.

The smoke that had also meant to obscure would become a fatal double edged sword for his enemy- stopping them from being able to see Hayate’s location or movements.

Roughly 16 steps away from the target he would pivot, swinging his arm and chucking a bolt of lightning from his feet at the target. 15 steps the same, 14, 13, 12. Every step he advanced at him at his full speed, he would be chucking bolts of lightning, if he deemed it okay to stop, he would do so.

Someone had set a fire meanwhile- creating even more smoke over near the temple and the rest of the forest. Interestingly enough, as the fire and smoke would grow the opponents most likely would only find themselves at more of a disadvantage. Fighting blind was one thing, but Hayate could not forgive anyone who would stoop so low as to start forest fires and hurt the trees. That wrath would be unbridled.

He heard a voice calling out something from a far near the temple- he made out it was Hotaru, and she was going on about something he didn't quite follow perhaps due to the fact he was flinging lightning and focusing mainly on that rather than her.

A battle ground is not the time for your daddy issues.

He probably should have been a better father.
USEDShow
*Fuuton • Aerokinesis
A-Rank Ninjutsu
Having achieved notable mastery over Fuuton, Hayate is capable of shaping, directing, and manipulating existing bodies of the element without the need of hand seals or an existing technique. The range at which the user can manipulate the element is equal to Hayate's control times 2 metres. While the user can freely manipulate this element, they cannot produce the element naturally where it doesn't exist.
40 speed, 30 strength

Raiton • Static Generation
D-Rank Ninjutsu
By channeling chakra into his feet, Hayate imbues them with Raiton Chakra. For the next 4 posts, every time his foot hits the ground, 6 inch long sparks of static electricity will fly from them into the immediate area. These sparks are sharp like senbon but don't have any real force behind them.

Lightning’s Shadow • Watchful Eye
A-Rank Discipline Taijutsu
Prerequisite: 30 Tai, 35 Instinct
Possessing immense instinct and perception, Hayate is cognizant of even the most subtle details around him, to a point where he can even pick up on the slightest tension changes in an opponent’s body allowing him predict their movement before it is complete or even read what someone is writing by the way the top of their pencil moves. At times his eyes seem to move on their own will, rapidly tracking an amount of movements equal to his [Instinct]/3. A downfall to this technique however is that while his eyes may be aware of movement, his body is not always capable of knowing and keeping up.

Saigo left his pillar of death laying against the forest floor as the visible smoke screens and eruptions of fires became apparent. He furrowed his brow as seemed to have missed each of the targets. Then a person he could turn to face made an entrance talking to them from atop the temple. "I couldn't see them from here, so how do you know they're children? Your elevated view has the canopy of the trees obscuring it more than my more grounded one, and I still couldn't see them. What knowledge do you possess about this attacking force that wasn't given to us?" Saigo asked the new arrival before channeling chakra while whispering into the fuuin on his ear, "Hayate, drop prone. I'm about to sweep this forest and leave some wiggle room on the forest floor for you."

Saigo raised the pillar high above his head before dashing forward and dropping it down to the side as he rushed to the tree line. Jumping up into the air, he swing his arm and left only a measly 1 meter of space under the pillar for Hayate as his massive scalpel swept through the forest. Once his arm reached the end of it's swing, he swung back the other way, elevating the swing so a larger gap was under the first as he tried to get the tree tops and above. As he finished his second swing, clearing the forest itself and it's tree tops encase someone jumped the first 11 meters from the forest floor, Saigo let the blade dissipate before bringing his hands together and closing his eyes. Reaching out with his senses, he tried to locate any and all individuals. Unless they'd somehow made it 500 meters away from the temple, Saigo would see their locations, but little else. If they got hit, he'd be able to round them up and start healing them.

'Hayate seems younger than me, but old enough to call others kids like I would, but I think the new arrival might be taking his words literally.... unless there is something I'm missing and he actually meant kids.' he thought before turning his attention to the girl that arrived. "New kid, guard the temple, see about that fire around back would ya? I need to make sure no one got killed... aside from a lot of squirrels and birds and a few deer it looks like." Saigo frowned as he basically just wiped out local forest life in the area, but still, they could be turned into food later. With that said, Saigo did a scan to see if any of the extra chakra sources moved or not before he'd figure out his next move.

Jutsu usedShow
[Iijutsu • Zantetsuken]
S-Ranked Ninjutsu
A more extreme version of [Iijutsu • Elongated Chakra Scalpel], this techniques was devised to handle large groups or powerful opponents from a distance. Raising his hand above his head, Saigo will channel chakra into his hand and craft a massive chakra scalpel that towers over the Doctor. This towering chakra scalpel has a length of 80 meters and a width of 10 meters as it flares out from Saigo's hand. Instead of vanishing after it's use, this technique will linger so long as Saigo is feeding chakra into it, allowing him to make wide swings and decimate large numbers of individuals with ease from a distance.

*[Sensory Style • Augmented Sense]
A-Rank Ninjutsu
Prerequisites: *[Sensory Style • Broad Sense], 30 Control
This jutsu is an even further extension of [Broad Sense]. With this jutsu, a sensor sacrifices quality for quantity. They can view to much greater distances compared to a normal sensor, but their ability to differentiate between people starts to become muddled, meaning multiple people in close proximity will appear simply as a large chakra mass, without the users being able to distinguish how many people are there. By sitting down and meditating, they are able to start to sense further and further away. For each post of meditating, they are able to see 500 meters out, up to a max of posts equal to 1/2 their control (rounded up).

Nishiki was running and running, trying hard not to panic as his heart pounded fast and his brain worked on overload, his breath deep and audible as he moved at maximum speeds.
Unsure of where the Raikage even went and beginning to feel the giant scalpel to turn, the boy simply let go of his kinesis and pressed on but without something going their way there was nothing he could do so there was only one option left given the perilous situation he was in and the danger of their opponents he had no other choice, had to... Had to... Had to... To... To... To... T...

All the colour began to fade as grey raced towards the young Tsukino, washing over his body until it drained even him, turning the world into still silence as it all seemed to rumble and shatter.
Everything all around began to crumble and melt, collapsing in on the fox and sweeping him up in a chaotic whirl as he crumbled into dust along with it until it span and swooped across to turn the world to darkness.

With nothing but black left it slowly seemed to pull out, revealing iridescent golden rings seemingly forming together as one big ring then beyond that there was white; an eye, Nishiki's eye.
Pulling further away the reflection of a dream, a plan, an idea could be seen fading from the boy's eyes as its dance came to an end and a determined but panicked look slowly began to crunch down and shift into pure panic as it zoomed out further.

Whatever ideas may have been had were now wiped clean, CANCELLED!
There would be no complete dodge into a roll. There would be no lightning armour. There would be no vague attempt at possible kinesis. There would be no further running.
Worst of all, there would be no chance for Nishiki to proclaim the words "This is nuts!".

Nishiki was flying through the air mid-dodge, everything seemingly going just right enough when he noticed a stream of wind pull from the shuriken with nothing he could do.
In that moment his panicked plans to get away where crushed, his life seemingly freezing for a moment before everything truly began to go wrong.
Beyond realms and realities one might expect the boy to suddenly turn and proclaim some nonsense about wondering how he got here but instead the wind simply slashed into him with great speed and strength.
"GARGH!" he screamed in pain, his body now tumbling with whirl of blood spiraling through the air until he crashed along the forest floor.

In a daze and with great pain the Special Jounin no longer knew what to do and couldn't really seem to move other to turn just enough to see the giant blade's descent, its descent right into his body.
"GAAAAARRRGGHH!" he wailed even louder, not even truly sure what such a pain really was as it seemed the scalpel phased right through his outer body and tared his innards.

Somehow, someway, he had still managed to fly far enough with his dodge without being able to keep running, thanks to Hayate's attack, so that only his lower part of his body was caught.
Though the boy was truly loathe to call it some kind of miracle as he was pretty decimated and surely beginning to bleed out, his thoughts swirling as he became unsure of how he could even escape with panic truly flooding his mind.
"Pathetic, let me do it!" a voice rumbled in his mind through all the panic, alerting the jinchuuriki just enough as he now started to think about all the moments he lost control.
"No" Nishiki whimpered out loud, tears starting to form, deciding last moment to drag Yoshimitsu down with him as it all seemed to fade.

Not really sure what was happening anymore a primal will to live took over and the Kirigakure shinobi's body began to act on its own, his mind seemingly blacked out to everything but escape as a faint glow of magenta chakra filled him along with a faint memory of an idea.
Suddenly lightning burst around the boy's body in a deep, eerie fashion, surging out and pushing against the chakra of the scalpel in a last ditch effort to break free just before it suddenly lifted.

Though the strange blade had lifted it moved deeper into the forest and began a large sweep, leaving only a small space to avoid it which if Nishiki was not already collapsed to the ground he probably wouldn't be able to.
Perhaps being attacked by the Raikage's fuuton kinesis was some weird godsend, though perhaps it wasn't truly as the Tsukino was still in massive pain and grave danger with his mind racing so much so he couldn't even make out any of the ramblings from other parties coming through the comms.

His will to live still overpowering him, the young fox began to claw his way through the dirt once some reason started to come back to him, dragging his legs along although it was an awful effort and quite painful so he truly was not going far and someone could easily bonk him out in seconds.
Jutsu usedShow
Raiton • Crackling Ghostly Aura
A-Ranked Raiton Jutsu
The user channels raiton chakra and causes a surge of lightning to build up around them like a large, glowing aura. This aura spreads across their whole body and spikes out in a wave of fluctuating electricity in a 50cm radius, jumping out to anything that gets within 3m.
This lightning moves in crackling arcs at [control] speed and shocks and deflects at [control] strength for 4 posts, all whilst making those within appear more like a ghostly figure due to all the glow.

Mondai just barely dodged the kunai and just barely dodged the scalpel as it phased into the ground. Mondai looked back in panic before he noticed that Nishiki transformed partly into his jinchuriki transformation. Mondai feared what was about to come however he instinctually decided to rush towards the Genma to try to assist him he attempted to lift him before he noticed that the scalpel began to raise from the ground and went deeper into the forest, which made him realize that he could not continue to help Nishiki. Mondai knew if he tried to help and lift him he would cause more damage. So instead Mondai simply stopped trying to lift him and instead dove towards the ground and rolled away. The scalpel swept horizontally which passed over him his muscles and body was shaking from fear however he would not abandon his comrades regardless so instead he decided to try to convince his comrades to run away instead of trying to retaliate and delay to wait for back-up.

"We need to run we can't stall anymore! We need to get the bloody hell out of here!!! Just give us the order and we will make a run for it!" Mondai shouted out of desperation to the squad leader know and Kinomichi. Lighting was chucked at the trees and smoke and fire was spreading., Mondai laid low and focused on his comrades to see any opening he could. As soon as they got the green light he requested from their team leader Mondai would do his best to see to it that they was able to escape unscathed however unlikely they scenario was..
