Village: Kirigakure no Sato
Size: Small 5 - 10 “families”
Traits: Kaguya all have white hair, something indicative of their disorder. Additionally, a byproduct of the treatment for their disorder are two permanent red bruises on their forehead
Traditions: The Kaguya clan are not actually genetically related. Unlike most clans, the Kaguya are actually made up of people from anyone in Kirigakure. They all share a congenital disease that causes the body to ossify over the course of the year after birth. There is no known medical treatment for the disease, and plagues newborns around the world. The disease occurs spontaneously in-utero, it is not genetically passed on, meaning it can occur in any child. The Kaguya clan developed a secret chakra based treatment for the disease which has not been able to be replicated since. The treatment results in their pseudo-kekkei genkai, explained later on.
More importantly, however, is that the Kaguya refuse to use the treatment freely. The parents of any child born with the disease are approached by the clan leaders when word reaches them. Two options are presented, either: a) the parents forfeit the baby to the clan, allowing the infant to be treated but completely detaching them from their parentage and inducting them into the Kaguya clan, or b) the Kaguya will standby and allow the baby’s body to slowly and painfully turn to bone until they die. They offer this only to the residents of Kirigakure, and have never treated anyone outside the village.
The process causes the child to be sterile, completely removing the Kaguya’s ability to reproduce, practically requiring this process for their survival as a people. As such, it is not uncommon for clan members to simply kidnap children of parents who refuse treatment. The treatment leaves two large scars on the clan members forehead for their entire lives, which the clan covers with paint, two red circles outlined with black. You’ll never see a Kaguya without their traditional markings on. Kaguya teach nothing but brutality and strength. Typically abusive households, the Kaguya raise spartan like children that have few fears. Those who are not resilient enough, or show to be too timid are often killed growing up. Alongside their academy graduation, as becoming a shinobi is mandatory, Kaguya children are expected to perform their first kill. Oftentimes the village would offer forward someone sentenced to death, but if none are available, the child will be expected to pick a target. The ceremonial killing is watched by the entire clan, and symbolizes the child’s passing from a child, to a warrior.
Influence: Belonging to the Kawazaiwa family, the Kaguya act as the warriors of the Family. As such, almost all the military based decisions voted on by the Kawazaiwa are ran through the Kaguya clan heads first. Additionally, within the family all executions and punishments are determined ,and given, by the Kaguya. Because all Kaguya are sterile, they are the only clan in Kirigakure that is permitted to have relationships outside of their clan, though few Kaguya pursue romantic relationships and tend to focus more on practical relationships.
Before they joined Kirigakure, the Kaguya clan were wanderers. They wandered around the world, finding children born with their defect and abducting them from their families, incorporating them into their clan. Eventually, they were sought out by the Sandaime Mizukage, and a young man who claimed to be the head of a Kawazaiwa Family. The three brokered an arrangement between the village and the clan, the clan would move into Kirigakure, and they’d be offered protection for their lifestyle for the village.
The Kaguya joined the village, had a compound built, and were incorporated into the academy to begin creating bonafide shinobi. Since, they’ve proven to be extremely adept warriors, arguably the best in the village. They kept their noses out of most political notions, and held themselves as part of the village.
Quote:Clan Jutsu Note: All Clan Jutsu require the below [Bone Control] concentration.Death Bone Pulse A byproduct of the treatment for a congenital disorder, Death Bone Pulse is a Kaguya’s ability to control the ossification of their bodies to rapidly replace, grow, or produce bone from their bodies. This process is able to be consciously controlled as if it was a muscle. This allows the Kaguya to not only turn any part of their bodies into bone, but to grow new bones, or additional bones, or simply fashion things out of bone. This skill is actually a natural process that can be consciously controlled, making it a form of taijutsu, meaning all Kaguya techniques utilize the users Speed and Strength.
