He had been there several times before on missions, scouting out this, tailing such and such, assassinating someone who tried to flee Water, the usual fare. But something he'd always really hung on to was the feel of the climate in the Land of Fire. While not technically all that much different from the weather in Kirigakure, both generally being tropical (at least the coasts of Fire were, as they were by and large the furthest he'd been allowed to get into the place), the lack of an oppressive mist that partially blocked the sun every second of every day that the sun was up gave the Land of Fire the impression of being... warm by comparison, ironically enough. As a staunch user of only fire ninjutsu (in one form or another) all his life, naturally Aimi appreciated a bit of warmth on his bare skin. Thus Fire had always held an appeal to him that made him want to explore the continent further.
This, of course, did not mean that he was necessarily a free man to do as he liked even with his new rank of bannin. Aimi was no fool and knew full well that Fire was no friend of Water. If he wanted to do any exploring on his own spare time he would need to do it incognito. That was exactly what he chose to do. Simply by pulling his white cloak up from where it was usually bunched at his belt and wearing it properly, picking up a pair of wooden sandals (perhaps the least inoffensive shoe he could stomach), changing the skeletal structure of his face to be rounder, smoother, and all around more soft and friendly looking and picking up a large straw hat to bunch his long white hair up into, Aimi Kaguya was more or less perfectly disguised to wander the continent as he saw fit! After all if his face didn't match what was in the BINGO book, was he really Aimi Kaguya?
A final and crucial touch to make his disguise perfect, however, was to make his chakra signature like that of an ordinary mans'. There were plenty of wandering ronin and samurai in the world, after all, and he looked the part - but a single glance from a sensory ninjutsu that could measure how much chakra he had would give him away as not your typical samurai in an instant, and if Fire was anything like Water was there was the potential for eyes to be everywhere that belonged to shinobi or kunoichi. Thus it was necessary for Aimi to forcibly close off his tenketsu, sealing the 8 inner gates inside of himself and leaving him with drastically reduced physical abilities and a tiny amount of chakra. Who needed to go places fast, anyways? He was on vacation and the point was the look around! Walking places suited him just fine even if he couldn't fly safely. He'd gone the first handful of years of his life without wings so what was walking to him now anyways?
Thus disguised both physically and in terms of chakra, Aimi Kaguya walked through the Land of Fire. He went from town to town, asking people directions as politely as he could (he was used to simply demanding answers and them being given to him), stopping and getting some rest, food, whatever he needed. He was absorbing the culture of Fire and, honestly? It was kind of nice to be a nobody that no one recognized! In Water he was a celebrity equal in status only by the Mizukage and other bannin. Here? Beyond his entry in the BINGO book? He was no one. Just an ordinary, friendly-faced ronin looking for a place to lay his head and get a good bite to eat. Who didn't like wandering samurai?
This was how Aimi found himself to be in a small city towards the middle of the continent named Tengaryu. A sleepy little town that didn't seem to have a lot of hustle and bustle and, more importantly, very little shinobi activity by the looks of things. Buildings were spaced far enough apart that you could get a cart or two lead by a horse or ox through them, the roads were dirt and the entire place that wasn't a road was surrounded by those ever present trees that were such a rarity in Water (Kiri, more like) and much such a fine noise whenever the wind picked up! Aimi felt absolute confidence that he would remain undetected as he had been for some time now as he went into this place and began to seek out a good place to eat for cheap (or labor, as he had found to be the case in some places!). He had absolutely no expectations of this being any different from anywhere else he'd gone to in his disguise.
How. Wrong. He. Would. Be.
A-Ranked Taijutsu Maneuver
By ossifying bones throughout their entire body, the user is able to change their entire skeletal structure. With this jutsu, the user is able to drastically alter their facial structure, allowing them to change the look of their face. With enough practice, the user can even take on the appearance of others. In addition, the user may also change the skeletal structure of their body, allowing them to grow or shrink by inches. This kind of change is limited, however, as the user must be careful not to loosen their musculature from their bones too much or else cause sever damage due to severed muscles. Because of this, the user may only change their height by 6 inches in either direction. The user is able to make these changes at a speed equal to their [Speed].
[Ignorance Is Bliss]
S-Ranked Taijutsu Stance
Prerequisite: 45 Control, [Heavenly Body Control], [Rigid Structure]
The saying 'ignorance is bliss' is not just an apt name for this stance, but also true in many cases. Using this Stance, the user tenses their body up in such a way that they limit their physical capabilities severely. The user's muscles become tense and rigid, severely hampering physical movement and strength capabilities. More impressive, though, is the restrictions placed upon the tenketsu system. While in this stance, the 8 inner gates are closed off, leaving the user with only a severely limited chakra pool to draw upon. This Stance places a -40 stat debuff on the user's Strength, Speed and Chakra Pool for as long as they maintain the Stance. Once assumed, even a direct look at the user with sensory ninjutsu will be fooled. Once this Stance is broken, the 8 gates are all thrown open at once, resulting in a sudden, massive influx to the user's chakra that is momentarily visible and palpable to anyone within an X meter radius of the user, where X is equal to the user's [Chakra Pool] as chakra bursts out of every tenketsu and forms a 'cloud' around the user. Anyone within this area of effect who's Strength is less than the users’ [Chakra Pool] is afflicted by a tremendous sense of nausea that lasts a number of posts equal to the difference between the users’ [Chakra Pool] and the affected's [Endurance]. If a person's [Strength] is 10 or more less than the users’ [Chakra Pool], they will be unable to prevent themselves from vomiting. If a persons’ [Strength] is 20 or more less than the users’ [Chakra Pool], they will be unable to prevent themselves from passing out for 1 post. The user must maintain this Stance for a minimum of 5 posts before breaking it once assumed to achieve this effect.
