Ryu


General Information
Type: Pet
Gender: Male
Age: 9
Appearance:
  • Face/head: Ryu is a very large dog but short to medium fur that is mostly white with some black accents. He has a scar across one eye as a result of past injuries. His scarred eye is an amber brown though he can still see out of it, his other eye is a crystal blue.
  • Body: He is a very large dog, his shoulders coming up to about five feet when he's standing on all fours. His tail is quite fluffy and feathers out when he has it up and curled over himself (when he's happy of course), as its about three to three and a half feet long.
  • Notable Features: Scar over his right eye.
Personality:
  • General: Ryu is much more a silent shadow than his sister is. He doesn't tend to act or attack unless instructed, commanded, or otherwise provoked. He tends to maintain a distance from others to only silently observe and interacts only with his owner directly. He carries a strong dislike and distrust of strangers though he still keeps hostility reserved only for enemies. His dislike he shows in other ways that still cannot be mistaken.
  • Hopes/Dreams: Ryu's only hope is to never fail another Owner like his first.
  • Fears: Ryu's fear is to survive another partner.
  • Combat Mentality: Ryu is an aggressive snarling hell-beast in a fight, preferring to keep a fight up front and in a target's face.

Historical Accounts:
Ryu was a pup born of course to a pair of dogs within the Inuzuka Clan. His mother was a purebred, his father was half wolf but the shinobi companion of a fairly well known Inuzuka. Ryu was born part of a litter of about half a dozen puppies. He and one of his siblings was adopted to a pair of twins, chosen as part of the clan birthright.

His life has been fairly uneventful for the most part, being fairly typical of an Inuzuka companion so far. His Master however died horribly rather recently, and he was badly hurt and even after he healed he wasn't able to immediately come home as he still behaved rather feral for some time. Once he was given time and retraining, he was deemed fit for duty again and adopted by his fallen Master's twin sister and taken in as her second companion to work alongside his own sister, and specifically as his new Master's ANBU dog, that she might not be left without a companion when behind her mask.

Jutsu
Inu no Seishitsu (Canine's Nature) - TaijutsuShow
D Rank:
Inu no Seishitsu :: A Stray Scent
D Ranked Taijutsu Discipline
Being a ninken, Ryu's sense of smell has been trained to quickly and accurately detect odors nearby, based on how strong or weak those odors are. Overwhelming odors, like the smell of rotting flesh, can be detected as far away as 100 meters, while the smell of an average human can be picked up from as far away as 25 meters. Subtle scents, such as masking agents and odor concealments, can be detected up to 12 meters away.

Inu no Seishitsu :: Walking on Paws
D Ranked Taijutsu Discipline
Being a ninken, Ryu is able to move on all four of his paws in near silence and leave behind little to no trace of his passing due to the structuring of his feet combined with his abilities as a shinobi's companion. To hear his movements, an opponent requires a hearing perception jutsu of equal or higher rank.

Inu no Seishitsu :: Threaten
D Ranked Taijutsu Stance
Using this Stance Ryu stands ready to fight immediately. His muscles are tense, his front half slightly lowered, his back slightly raised, his fur standing on end. He stares down his opponent. As part of this intimidation his target may feel nervous or anxious at the sight of him. If his target's willpower is lower than his own will cause them to feel reluctant and make them less likely to approach so long as he maintains this stance.

Inu no Seishitsu :: Finish or Hold
D Ranked Taijutsu Maneuver
In this Maneuver Ryu will target a set of vital veins or arteries in his target with his powerful jaw and teeth to either hold them in place or finish them off. This could include the neck, thigh/groin, or other areas where a cluster of vital veins or arteries are.

Inu no Seishitsu :: Snip & Snap
D Ranked Taijutsu Maneuver
In this Maneuver, Ryu tries to damage his target in any way he can. He will attempt to snap at them with his powerful jaws and teeth or claw at them with his strong paws and powerful claws. Any way that he can damage them or draw blood, he will, if he can just get his paws or claws on them.
C Rank:
Inu no Seishitsu :: Ankle Biter
C Ranked Taijutsu Maneuver
In this Maneuver Ryu will lunge for the target and attempt to knock them off their feet by either bodily slamming into their ankles or grabbing at them with this mouth to pull them off their feet and get them on the ground. Once on the ground, he'll pull and tear at their ankles further in an attempt to sever the tendons entirely and keep them on the ground for as long as possible.

Inu no Seishitsu :: Lick & Sniff
C Ranked Taijutsu Discipline
Prerequisite: Inu no Seishitsu :: A Stray Scent
Building onto Inu no Seishitsu :: A Stray Scent, If Ryu has tasted a targeted scent by either licking or biting a target previously, the range of this technique doubled. As such, Overwhelming odors, like the smell of rotting flesh, can be detected as far away as 200 meters, while the smell of an average human can be picked up from as far away as 100 meters. Subtle scents, such as masking agents and odor concealments, can be detected up to 50 meters away.

Inu no Seishitsu :: Held & Grounded
C Ranked Taijutsu Maneuver
In this Maneuver, Ryu will latch onto whatever part of the target he can reach, typically something like a knee, calf, or even wrist. Keeping a hold of them with his powerful jaws he'll keep moving slowly to pull the target along with him, but also to keep himself hopefully out of grabbing reach and keep from getting shaken off. This is done specifically and typically to keep the target in position for Ryu's partner to land a hit or technique while Ryu has them held in place.

Inu no Seishitsu :: Call of the Wild
C Ranked Taijutsu Stance
In this Stance, Ryu will let loose a howl that sounds almost ethereal. His tail curls up over his back, his head arches up and his snout raises up to the sky. If his target's willpower is less than his own they will feel fear wash over them that leaves them shaken so long as he is in this stance and howling, and will push them towards the urge to flee rather than the urge to attack.

Inu no Seishitsu :: Pack Mentality
C Ranked Taijutsu Discipline
In this Discipline, Ryu specifically works with the goal in mind of herding their target towards their companion. He will strategically keep himself out of reach of his target or his target's weapons while snapping and growling at his target to encourage them to move away from him and towards his owner or other companion in the fight. Much like how dogs or wolves in the wild will surround an animal and circle them, Ryu will do similarly and constantly move back and forth to keep this up until either his goal is achieved or he is forced to take a different tactic. Doing this includes stealing weapons out of the target's hands if necessary, snapping at vital areas or leaving minor wounds to encourage their cooperation with his aims.
Jūjin Style - TaijutsuShow
Jūjin Style:
The taijutsu style most commonly used by the Inuzuka house, the high speed taijutsu style is designed to quickly assault and overwhelm the opponent with heavy handed and sharp attacks, including scratching, biting, tearing off flesh, and grabbing. While some view it as a weakness, taijutsu specialists admire the style for it’s ability to do damage without the use of a weapon.
These techniques may be used by either the Clan Member or Ninken.
D Rank:
~Double Tackle
D Rank Taijutsu Maneuver
Prerequisite: Both the clan member and the companion must have this technique
A combination technique utilized by members of the Inuzuka clan, the user will attempt to get on one side of the opponent as his/her familiar positions itself on the other side. Once in position, the user will charge and do a flying tackle at the opponent, aiming for the torso and head region. While this is going on, the Ninken will attempt to take out the target's legs by charging into them. If both the clan member and his/her familiar are successful, the opponent could be knocked over and possibly made vulnerable. This technique can be done on its own by either the ninken or the clan member, but isn't nearly as effective.

~Catch
D Rank Taijutsu Maneuver
Another instance of learning from their canine companions, the Inuzuka have adopted this method of catching and holding objects thrown at them. Taking advantage of his/her speed and strong teeth, the user is able to catch projectiles like kunai and other miscellanea in his/her mouth. The user's speed must be at least equal to the strength of the opponent in order to catch the thrown object, otherwise it will be thrown faster than the clan member can intercept it. This technique must still be used with caution, as catching dangerous items with one's mouth can prove to be disastrous if done incorrectly.

~Latch Onto
D Rank Taijutsu Maneuver
Utilizing its teeth and strength, the clan member or familiar will attempt to latch onto the opponent's body with their mouth. From this position, the canine or Inuzuka will do whatever possible to resist being removed. In order to throw off the ninken or clan member, the target must have a strength higher than their strength.

~Splash of Mud
D Rank Taijutsu Maneuver
While simple, this technique can be insanely frustrating for an opponent on open ground with no cover. When attacked from behind, the clan member or ninken will bend over and begin scooping chunks of earth to literally barrage their opponent with mud and dirt. Depending on the strength of the user, these clods can cause serious damage, especially in rocky terrain. This technique’s range depends on the strength of the user as these rocks are considered throwing weapons for the purposes of distance.

~Mount
D Rank Taijutsu Maneuver
Modeled after a staple dog fighting technique, the user will jump on the target from behind, digging their teeth into their target's neck in the process. The combined weight of the user, and the pain from the bite of the neck is usually enough to knock the target down to the ground.

~Arm Distance
D Rank Taijutsu Discipline
A passive technique, whenever the user is rebounding from an attack, they'll always jump away with enough distance that their opponent has to either follow them or attack preemptively if they wish to attack them. This allows the clan member or familiar to jump out of harm’s way and then jump right back in without much hesitation.

Inu no Seishitsu :: A Stray Scent - The last two distance will probably need to be about half what they are now for a D-rank.

Inu no Seishitsu :: Walking on Paws - This will need a max speed, probably 1/4 or 1/3 of the companion's [Speed]

Inu no Seishitsu :: Lick & Sniff - Because you have the pre-req of them having to actually come into contact with the target these ranges feel good.

Updated Stray Scent but I'd like another opinion on Walking on Paws. It's literally just a written out jutsu version on what he'd be capable of doing as the animal that he is and technically isn't even required as a jutsu as is commonly argued on the site daily. I only wrote it out as one to quantify it in case needed situationally.

Not sure what you are attempting to argue, honestly. I just stated that as a stealth technique, it will have a max speed (as its a D-rank technique) at which it will work for the part about others not being able to hear his movements.

Given the updated rules on tai not needing to affect speed while stealth'd...
