[Shuryō]


General Information

Type: Clan
Village: Shark Country
Size: Large
Traits: The Shuryo clan is comprised of individuals that look like humanoid sharks. Their eyes are disproportionately large for their body. Their eye colors range from oceanic blues, to blood red, while some even match the coloring of their scales. All clan members also have two small gills beneath their large eyes. Their teeth are quite vicious looking, very sharp and jagged and pointing in just about every direction. Every member has at least one row of these shark-like teeth, though some have as many as three. Around those teeth, Shuryo members also have very pronounced jaws with beefy muscles clearly visible. Additionally, although very rare, members can also be born with prehensile tails that come out of their lower back and are both useful for swimming and even in combat, with proper training.

All Shuryo are born with shark-like scales on their skin. These scales are locked in tightly against each other and act very much like a hard armor. Because they're also oriented in a downward direction, it gives their skin a sandpaper like-feel when going against the grain. These scales also vary in color, though they always resemble the natural coloring of living sharks, such as the Great White, or, Tiger sharks. As the Shuryo do not have normal skin, the coloring of their scales is their “skin tone.” As these scales cover almost the entirety of the Shuryo's body, including the head and face, most Shuryo are devoid of any hair. However, those that grow hair, have natural hair colors that are various hues of oceanic blues, and sea greens.
Traditions: The Shuryo have always been seafarers, and have always provided the majority of the food for the citizens of their homeland. Not only are they excellent fishermen, but they are quite skilled in training not only sea dwelling animals, but land dwelling ones as well. These animal companions help the Shuryo not only while fishing, but in battle as well. Because of their inborn physical enhancements, the Shuryo clan are born warriors.

Every child of the clan is trained in some form of martial arts from the time they can understand instruction, and are required to serve at least five years in Shark Country's military. Once their service is complete, many young clan members will leave home on their own adventures in order to experience the world.
Influence: The Shuryo clan rules Shark Country, and makes up most of it's military. The Shuryo clan has established trading contracts with many surrounding countries, and are one of the largest suppliers of seafood for Sunagakure, and Wind Country, as a whole.
History The Shuryo clan rose to prominence in Shark Country long before the founding of the five major villages, however, they were not a militarized clan until the beginning of the last century, having been solely a seafaring clan until then. Within the last one hundred years, the Shuryo have occupied every inch of the coastal lands of Shark Country, and nearly every citizen has some degree of Shuryo blood within them. Most recently the clan has become much more militarized than before, and has begun sending their juniors out into the world in hopes of having them learn Ninjutsu.

Shinobi Information Definitions: The Shuryo clan are a hybrid of marine life, and human life. Their bodily mutations allow them to live freely on land, and in water, and can move just as easily in water as on land. They are not strengthened while in water, nor are they hindered while on land.
Requirements: At least one above average stamina at registration.
Kekkei Genkai:

While it's unclear whether due to evolution or chakra, The Shuryo clan is comprised of individuals that look like humanoid sharks. Their eyes are disproportionately large for their body and contain huge pupils that can dilate very quickly, allowing them to see in the darkest depths but also not be blinded by every-day light on land. These eyes grant them vision in the dark so long as it's not complete, absolute darkness. All clan members also have two small gills beneath their eyes, highly effective for their size and allow members to breathe underwater while their normal lungs let them breathe on land. Their teeth are quite vicious looking, very sharp and jagged and pointing in just about every direction. Every member has at least 1 row of these teeth that slowly drop out of their mouth and get replaced by new, fresh teeth throughout the month. Around those teeth, Shuryo members also have very pronounced jaws with beefy muscles clearly visible. All members can use their entirety of their strength with their jaws, making for extremely powerful bites. Additionally, although very rare, members can also be born with prehensile tails that come out of their lower back and are both useful for swimming and even in combat, with proper training.

-Hunter's Sense-

All Shoryu members are born with an enhanced version of a Lateral Line. The entirety of their skin is sensitive to electronic signals and can pick up their location within a a range equal to their instinct/2, although this range can be increased with Taijutsu disciplines. This lateral line is their strongest tool and allows them to easily see the movements of those around them as well as find hidden enemies.

-Dermal Scales-

All Shuryo are born with shark-like scales on their skin. These scales are locked in tightly against each other and act very much like a hard armor. Because they're also oriented in a downward direction, it gives their skin a sandpaper like-feel when going against the grain and giving the skin a passive grinding ability. This placoid scale armor has a durability equal to the Shuryo's [Stam+Str]/2.
Passive (Grinding)Show
The Shuryo's Dermal Scales are rough, and grind in their movement, eroding and tearing at anything they come in contact with. This makes their scales an aggressive tool that adds to their strength when coming in contact with solid matter by breaking it down and adding it to it's mass. Their scales grind against solid matter, which adds 1/6th of the strength of that thing to it's own strength. A 30 strength punch breaking through a 10 strength Doton wall would add 2 strength to itself, having 32 strength. Against organic matter, these scales grind against skin and wounds, causing microtears that can become irritating and worsen existing wounds. Below is a list for how the Shuryo's dermal scales interacts with solid matter.
  • 1-14 Strength Requirement: Minor scrapes and cuts, minor bleeding.
  • 15-24 Strength Requirement: Scrapes, removal of skin, moderate bleeding.
  • 25-34 Strength Requirement: Removal of upper muscle, heavy bleeding.
  • 35+ Strength Requirement: Grinding of flesh, removal of deep tissue, profuse bleeding.

D-Rank Taijutsu Maneuver
After pulling three of their shark-like teeth out, and placing them between their fingertips, the Shuryo will perform a knife hand slash at their target, with their teeth getting lodged into the target should it connect.

[b][color=seagreen][Fisher’s Delight • The Hunt Begins][/color][/b]
D-Rank Taijutsu Discipline
This jutsu is activated when the Shuryo focuses entirely on their Hunter's Sense. By concentrating completely and remaining motionless, the Shuryo member may increase the range of their Hunter's Sense by 5 meters.

[b][color=seagreen][Fisher’s Delight • Shark’s Bite][/color][/b]
D-Rank Taijutsu Maneuver
[i]Prerequisites[/i] 10 Strength
Thanks to their shark-like mutations, the Shuryo are able to exert the full force of their strength using their jaw. This allows them to bite through weapons such as kunai, shuriken, senbon, and even swords, should they get the weapon between their teeth.

[b][color=seagreen][Fisher’s Delight • The Hunt Continues][/color] [/b]
C-Rank Taijutsu Discipline

[b][color=seagreen][Fisher’s Delight • Shark Frenzy][/color][/b]
C-Rank Taijutsu Stance
Members of the Shuryo clan are able to give themselves over to their basic, animalistic, instincts. This allows them to enter into a feral state of mind where they lose all ability to determine friend from foe, but in return, gives them a +3 to their Speed, and Strength stats for six posts.

[b][color=seagreen][Fisher’s Delight • Blood In The Water][/color][/b]
C-Rank Taijutsu Discipline
The Shuryo clan is known for their many aquatic adaptations, however, their sense of smell is known to be exceptional both in water, and on land. The Shuryo are capable of tracking scents that they have come in contact with within the last six posts with pinpoint accuracy. However, this adaptation also leaves them vulnerable to scent based attacks.

[b][color=seagreen][Fisher’s Delight • Shark Attack!][/color][/b]
C-Rank Taijutsu Maneuver
The Shuryo will first attempt to catch their opponent’s arm by the wrist, while pivoting their dominant leg in front of their target’s feet. They will then twist the opponent’s arm, at the wrist, while bringing their elbow up, and over, their target’s twisted arm, so that their elbow is even with their opponent’s. While squatting down, the Shuryo will bring their elbow down to their hip, while keeping their opponent’s wrist at their own neck, in order to maintain pressure on their opponent’s arm. Once the target is kneeling down, the Shuryo will hook the target’s arm over their own, while grabbing the target by the neck so that they can force them to the ground. The Shuryo will then attack their target with their mutated, shark-like, teeth.

[b][color=seagreen][Fisher’s Delight • Shark Tail Slap][/color][/b]
C-Rank Taijutsu Maneuver
[i]Prerequisites[/i]: 16 Strength
Thanks to their shark-like mutations, the Shuryo often use their shark-like tail in battle. One such instance is Shark Tail Slap. The Shuryo will spin on the ball of their foot, and slam their tail into their target. If the Shuryo's strength stat is 3 points, or higher, the Shuryo's strike will launch the target backwards.

[b][color=seagreen][Fisher’s Delight • Shark Tooth Devastation][/color][/b]
B-Rank Taijutsu Maneuver
[i]Prerequisites[/i]: 20 Strength
The Shuryo will stick their fingers in their mouth, and rip out one of their teeth. They will then place the jagged tooth between their middle, and ring, fingers. The Shuryo will then attempt to land a hit on the target’s rib cage. If successful the Shuryo’s tooth will be jammed between two of the target’s ribs, and into their lung. This will cause a -6 to the target’s Speed stat, due to being unable to breathe properly. The user’s strength stat must be 5 points higher than the target’s to be successful. The Shuryo’s tooth will regrow during the next 3 posts.

[b][color=seagreen][Fisher’s Delight • Shark Tooth Annihilation][/color][/b]
B-Rank Taijutsu Maneuver
The Shuryo will stick their fingers in their mouth, and rip out six of their teeth at once. They will then place the jagged teeth between their fingers for two makeshift sets of “brass knuckles.” The Shuryo will then attempt to punch their target. If successful, the Shuryo's teeth will stab into the target's flesh. The Shuryo will then, as soon as the punch lands, twist their fist so that their teeth will “grind up” the flesh of their target. This causes a -3 to occur on the target's stamina stat each post for 3 posts, resulting in a -9 after the third post. The Shuryo's teeth will regrow after three posts.

[b][color=seagreen][Fisher’s Delight • Shark Grinder][/color][/b]
B-Rank Taijutsu Maneuver
After bristling the dermal scales on their legs, the Shuryo will charge their target, and attempt to run their leg up the target by jumping, and pushing off the target's thigh with their foot. If successful, the Shuryo will drag their bristled scales up the target's chest.

[b][color=seagreen][Fisher’s Delight • Shark Skin Sonic Boom][/color][/b]
A-Rank Taijutsu Maneuver
[i]Prerequisites[/i]: 35 Strength, 30 Taijutsu
The Shuryo will tense up all of the muscles in their arm, and torso, in preparation for their next punch. When they throw their next punch the Shuryo will release all of the built up power in their body, and will bristle the scales on their arm. This will create a surging cone of pressure that the Shuryo directs with their punch, and has a strength of 2/3rds the user's. The cone is eight feet long, and is four feet in diameter at its widest.

[b][color=seagreen][Fisher’s Delight • Shark Tooth Hurricane][/color][/b]
A-Rank Taijutsu Maneuver
[i]Prerequisites[/i]: 35 Strength, 30 Taijutsu
The Shuryo will pull three teeth out of their mouth, place them between their fingers, tense up all of the muscles in their arm, and torso, and throw them like shuriken. Each tooth spins at such a high speed, and with such strength, that a cyclone is formed behind them as they fly through the air. These cyclones have a speed, and strength, that is 2/3rds of the user's. Each cyclone is six meters tall, and two meters wide at their widest point.

[b][color=seagreen][Fisher’s Delight • Power Surge][/color][/b]
A-Rank Taijutsu Maneuver
By remaining completely motionless for half of a post, the Shuryo is able to erupt with all of the built up power in their body all at once. This creates a shockwave that blasts outwards from their body with a strength that is equal to 2/3rds of their own. This shockwave travels at a speed equal to 2/3rds the Shuryo's strength, and up to a distance equal to their stamina stat in meters.

[b][color=seagreen][Fisher’s Delight • Shark Totem][/color][/b]
S-Rank Taijutsu Maneuver
[i]Prerequisites[/i]: Heavenly Body Control
The Shuryo will forcefully excrete blood from between their scales that gather into two life like sharks that “swim” through the air around the Shuryo’s arm as they punch at their target. The punch creates drill like vortex, of which the sharks spin around, that has 2/3rds the user's strength, and twists apart muscles upon contact, causing a -4 to the target's strength for 8 posts. This vortex travels at 2/3rds the user's strength stat.
