A snake slithers back to Dragon

Post by Zao » Tue May 10, 2022 1:09 am

It was a windy, narrow dirt road only, perhaps only two carriage widths wide and upon this road walked a pale skinned tall figure that wore ragged looking clothing that was more akin to some sort of homeless beggar than the dangerous snake that hid beneath them. Across the exposed center torso and face were a number of tattoos, these tattoos were inscriptions made in some foreign language, one lost in time belonging to the sect that was founded nearly a thousand years ago. The former Dragon country native, displaced by the Great War had returned after seeking out the strength he felt that he needed to truly fight back against the foreign invaders, those of the Fire nation. Ken's strange crimson eyes that resembled those of a serpent looked out from beneath the messy waist long locks of raven hair that were unkept and untamed, allowed to hand down to hide most of his face.

The pale skin of the man was as though it had never seen the sun, or perhaps that the sun's rays were just unable to affect the pristine skin as Ken continued to slowly traverse the roadway headed to the east where he had been told one of the shinobi outposts could be found. 'It is time, with your strength I will finally start to exact my own desires.' Ken mumbled to himself, the strength he spoke about was not just his own but that which he had acquired by becoming one of the White Serpent King's apostles here in the human realm. The powerful chakra of the God Spirit enough to mutate the man's very genetic code and with it bring about great changes in his body and personal strength. His kunai were somewhat hidden from view as the shaggy looking torn shirt's tattered edges hung down around thigh length. The left arm was strange, seemingly wrapped in black bandages and slung inside the loose overshirt and across his chest, strangely looking much to long to be an ordinary arm but the bandaging and ragged clothing hid its true appearance.

Also curled around the arm, hidden from view was a slender snow-white serpent and his own serpent companion who had traveled a good portion of the southern continent with him after the pair entered into their servant-master relationship. Ken had a few months ago aided his old companion and friend in uprooting the corrupt leader of Tea country allowing his grandfather like figure, Ikuto, to take his rightful control of the country. It was too bad that the man was so old and had a country to fix, he really could have used the man's strength in his own endeavor right now but didn't hold anything against the old man. After all, this was his own personal quest for revenge and things would most likely quickly become very ugly as he didn't have the same standards of life that his old friend had. This was because of his own personal loses at the hands of the foreign shinobi and the corruption of the White Serpent King's chakra that had altered his own mind. More violent and prone to act, to kill those that got in his way instead of going about the talking route. "Master, are you really going to do this?"

To anyone that would have been able to perceive the hidden snake, a short series of hisses whispered their way up through the tattered clothing and into the man's ears, but to Ken it was easily understood words as his own mouth parted slightly. A strange and ancient tongue was spoken that was a mix of sounds and the hiss of a snake as he spoke back in parseltongue. "It was inevitable, this darkness that has overtaken my soul desires that blood of those responsible..." The white serpent with the red diamond like marking on its forehead only shook its head, though she wasn't one to care about humans her master was more snake than human and only wanted for him to not endanger his live. It was strange for her and a bit difficult for her to understand the man's reasoning as snakes were generally loners and didn't have such family connections like humans had. The black skin of the man's legs that started just below the knee extended down to his bare feet that continued to walk step by step, seemingly in now rush towards the boarder outpost that had appeared just on the horizon.

"Soon...it will begin...today I allow my soul to descent into hell and for the darkness to fully consume me, as long as I can achieve my selfish desires there isn't anything I won't give up..." Again the man spoke and it came out not in the common human tongue but once more in the ancient language of the serpent. What would play out at this border out post, no one truly knew, but from the emotionless look on the apostle's face, there was a good chance that things would quickly turn ugly for whomever he met there on this day. A scowl grew upon the tattooed face of the man as the outpost at the border of his former homeland, Dragon Country, and the newly formed Dragon's Breath grew closer and closer, finally he was within shouting distance as the sentries picked up the man's approach and strange demeanor. Without a doubt the snake man stood out in a crowd, dressed in rags and bandaging suitable for some sort of homeless beggar but his unkept hair couldn't fully hide his tattooed face and body, nor the look of hatred within his crimson eyes as they lifted from the ground onto the men out before him. "I will only ask once of you shinobi, this land does not belong to you. Leave and go back to your own land."

This day had finally come, he had scratched and clawed his way to gain a strength that would allow for him to stand up against the force of nature that was the shinobi and their chakra techniques, but was it enough? Ken truly had no way of telling, only able to compare himself against one of the strongest fighters he had served with, a frog like man by the name of Fuhen, someone he had hoped would be able to help him in the past. But truly this was his own fight and one that he didn't wish to bring his only friends into after all everyone had their own path to walk in life. Ken's path just so happened to bring him here to this place on this day, as for what the outcome at the end of the day might be, no one could know. But he knew that he felt he finally had acquired the strength from his lord to let him stand shoulder-to-shoulder with that man and his might. His one good hand that wasn't wrapped in bandaged across his chest reached out from underneath the ragged cloak revealing its jet black skin that reached up to nearly the elbow, as though that part of the man's arm had been dipped in ink. That hand formed to a half prayer like position directly below his chin as the White Serpent genes within his body slowly began to circulate and activate. 'So it is finally time....'

A snake slithers back to Dragon

Post by Taiga » Sun May 15, 2022 12:43 am

Deep within Dragon country was a winding road and upon it walked two men who were on this day fated to meet. Hajime was a shadow of his former self. Despite being massive in stature, he hunched. His armor was rusted, his clothes tattered and torn. Much of his body was banged and he hobbled along the ground using a branch as a cane as if he was a decrepit leper. His face was dirty with an unwashed beard and under his piercing gaze were thick dark bags and puffy pink eyes. Everything about the man is a warning to the world around him. As he stumbled upon the path, with every step and consequential slamming of his makeshift cane into the ground, the fauna died around him, the grass decaying to mush and even the bugs themselves dying. A crazed look as if he was in a stupor sat upon his face. His skin was pale and what skin was visible had the scars of burns upon it. Senju Hajime was indeed a shadow of his former self and so much weaker than he had once been. He would fix that today- and the answer lied within the medics of the outpost to which he headed.

He continued hobbling forward on his path, reaching a fork in the road that merged with another path. a path walked by another stranger. The stranger he was perhaps fated to meet. Hajime's eyes cot a look of him from afar. The man was covered in tattered clothes, not too much unlike himself, and his skin was so pale. But, to the former ANBU and legendary missing ninja, something was off about this man. His stride was not that of a beggar but that of a king. With the outpost on the horizon, and as the stranger passed by him, he noticed something- the figure had begun to change, and then he spoke.

The gears in Hajime's cold, calculating head turned. This man clearly had it against the shinobi who had taken his land, and those shinobi, happened to be the same one Hajime wanted destroyed- though a missing ninja there was no love in his soul for the village that had done this to him. That had burnt him within an inch of his life just for completing the parameters of his mission. Whoever this stranger was, he would be interesting, for the enemy of thy enemy was my friend. There was just one small hitch though. He needed whatever medic was at that outpost to heal his broken body and if this guy killed them, well, he wouldn't get what he had come here for.

We must take control of the situation, Hajime a feint voice in the back of his head said. His staff dropping to the ground he stood to his full form, revealing his size as he hurdled forward, wincing through the pain. Even in this condition, he was far faster than the average Jounin, but it pained him to be in this condition. From behind the other stranger, he yelled with a booming but sickly and almost taunting voice, Koboku • Insanity Tree no Jutsu as a massive tree split out from the earth beneath the wall of the outpost, tearing it asunder and destroying it as its branches grew out and instantly began their terror. One branch would skewer one of the guards atop the wall, while another would grab one by the neck and toss him over the wall towards the other stranger.

Adding to what the other man had said, he would scream in a gutwrenching, horrific voice, "Death and decay awaits all those of the Fire Nation." as he hurdled forwards for the gap in the wall he had created.

He'd need to find the medics, and his assault on this base would be much easier now that another stranger was here.

It would appear that the man wasn't alone in this quest of his, another appearing to share similar feelings for the nation of Fire, but he had not expected to encounter someone like that out here. At first the almost fragile looking figure had barely even drawn the serpent's attention as he had been almost completely focused on what the response from the shinobi at the border outpost would be to his own perhaps outrageous words. After all, it was a rather boasting claim for a single man to call out an entire outpost as though he was some type of one-man army or something. Yet, he couldn't help but turn his head as the almost crippled looking figure in rags shed the cane like stick and assaulted the wall of the outpost without warning, only a yellow about how the Fire Nation would suffer. The crimson eyes watched as a tree like creature sprouted from along the wall destroying it, but two things really caught the man's attention.

Even with the action taking place it was the fact that the very life around the man seemed to be affected by some sort of dark aura: the grass and flora seemed to be drained of life and secondly was the fact that the man was a wood user. The man had learned what he could about the enemy of his future and so even he knew about the wood user clan of the Leaf village, the Senju. But if this man was able to utilize wood but defied his own village that meant he was a wanted man himself, a missing-nin. Perhaps this was good for him, though he didn't like the idea of a shinobi helping him, let alone a former Konoha-nin, perhaps this was a good thing. With two people assaulting the outpost he wouldn't be under the combined assault of shinobi forces stationed here.

"Hah, very well. Seems I can work together with this stranger for now..." Dark sage green chakra could be seen as it illuminated the fuuin inscription that resembled that figure of a curled serpent around the exposed dark skin of the right forearm and hand, he couldn't let himself be looked down upon just because this other man wanted to crash through ahead of him. With a backhanded strike the man who had been tossed his way was blasted to the side with incredible strength causing the man to be bend into a u-shape. As the critically injured shinobi as smashed through a large tree to the man's right Ken was prepared to follow in suit of the unnamed missing-nin.

It would seem the two men would be the disaster that would befall the shinobi of this place as a cloud of chakra smoke enveloped the small man as it expanded out nearly twenty meters before a forty-meter-long white serpent burst forward from the chakra smoke. The powerful and massive serpent smashed through the wall on the opposing side of the outpost from Hajime's corrupted tree. With a sinister smirk the man's right hand held onto a Tenku chain that connected him with the summoned serpent now as the chain stretched out to the back of the serpent, just below the back of the large snake's head as it flared out a cobra like hood as he smashed past the wall an into the building closest to the shattered wall. It's power tail swiping across behind it, the tip of the tail smashing into a group of three shinobi who had been about to attack the serpent and its owner. "I wonder where that other man got off to..."


JutsuShow

Kuchiyose • [Bring Forth the Serpents]
C-rank Tenkujutsu (Nin)
Pre-Requisite: Charge Fuuinjutsu Concentration
The base technique for summoning, this specialized version of the basic Spiritualism Technique allows users to bring forth up to three random snake spirits from the Serpent Realm through an agreement made between the user and King of the Serpents through a forbidden ritual. This works in conjunction with the user's Serpent Soul ability, allowing the random spirit(s) to exist as long as the Tenku chakra chain connecting them to the controller remains intact. This chain has [Control] strength.

The chakra used for this technique varies, as it is dependent on the size and/or rank of what is being summoned, the technique empowering the user's Soul of the Serpent allowing for him to summon an appropriate ranked 'random spirit' following the rules for realm summoning. Once it has been summoned, the initial cost of the summon is equivalent to its rank. It is paid upon being summoned and then at the end of those posts the spirit is pulled back to its original realm by the chakra chain that ties it to the user.
