Raiton Affinity:Raiton • Static CloakRaiton Affinity
A character with this concentration is able to utilize Raiton, and can make and use any custom or archived jutsu that require the Raiton affinity. Raiton has a shocking effect.Passive (Shocking)ShowRaiton has the effect of shocking, which means causes it's effect to be diffuse upon impact. In organic material, this causes nervous stimulation which results in numbness, tingling, loss of sensation, and sometimes paralysis. In inorganic material, this means that the strength of the jutsu diffuses across an area 2x the size of the attack. In a jutsu that creates a lightning ball 2m in diameter, if it struck a wall the size of the attack would cover a 4m area.
Additionally, the strength of the nervous effect on organic material from raiton jutsu is determined by the ninjutsu stat requirement.
- 1-14 Strength Requirement: Tingling, acute numbness.
- 15-24 Strength Requirement: Loss of Sensation
- 25-34 Strength Requirement: Localized Paralysis

Iaido Kenjutsu:**[Iaido • One with the Sheath]
The samurai of the Land of Tea have produced a unique style of Kenjutsu called Iaido. Unlike other styles, which rely on the sword being drawn to attack, a practitioner of Iaido is always ready to attack their opponents, even when their weapon is sheathed in its scabbard. Known as a "sword drawing" technique, Iaido uses the smooth, linear motion of pulling the sword from its sheath to create abnormally fast slashes and strikes against often ignorant and unsuspecting opponents. Though the katana is preferred for this style, any curved sword single-edged sword with a complimenting scabbard is compatible with this style. Their ability to fight with both traditional swordplay and hand-to-hand combat while perfectly capable of switching to quick slashes and stabs using Iaido's hallmark techniques makes practitioners of this style unpredictable fighters.
- Requires: [Sword Weapons], [Perception] Concentrations.
D-Rank Taijutsu Discipline
Prerequisite(s): 8 Speed, 8 Instinct.
The practitioner has learned how to more quickly and efficiently sheath his blades. The practitioner can now seamlessly transition from drawing their blade to slash to sheathing their blade, allowing the practitioner to sheath their sword in half the time, up to a maximum speed equal to their Speed score, for the more rapid execution of Iaido techniques.
*[Iaido • Last Breath]
D-Rank Taijutsu Maneuver
The most iconic (and most basic) strike of Iaido, the practitioner quickly draws and cuts with their blade in a wide arc in one fluid motion. This simultaneous draw and attack straight from the scabbard makes Iaido well-suited for an initial surprise attack and for taking advantage of openings presented by the opponent.
*[Iaido • Last Rites]
D-Rank Taijutsu Maneuver
A defensive technique particularly useful when an opponent is close to the practitioner or is clinching them in a grapple, the practitioner grabs the hilt of their sword with a reverse grip and rams the butt or pommel of the hilt into the opponent's body, pushing the opponent back a number of meters equal to the difference between their Strength scores. Conversely, against opponents with higher Strength than their own, the practitioner can use this technique to push themselves back a number of meters equal to their own Strength score. The speed and simplicity of the attack can push opponents away and give the practitioner the needed space to set up additional attacks.
*[Iaido • Clouding Eyes]
D-Rank Taijutsu Maneuver
Prerequisite(s): 8 Speed.
A simple technique meant to cripple the target's vision, the practitioner draws the sword from its scabbard and aims a quick slash at the eyes. This technique can be done in any single direction to either target one or both of the opponent's eyes.
*[Iaido • One with the Sword]
C-Rank Taijutsu Discipline
Prerequisite(s): *[Iaido • One with the Sheath].
The practitioner has learned how to more quickly and efficiently sheath his blades even without the use of both hands. The practitioner can now sheath the blade just as quickly with one hand as could be done with two hands, and so long as the scabbard remains on their person, the practitioner will always have an exact knowledge of the position of their scabbard.GenjutsuShowPlace Genjutsu in here
Koji was born to a good family, his mother a Leaf special jounin while his father a swordsmanship instructor who had gained citizenship within the Leaf village only a few years prior. The two had met and at first been like opposites but over the course of two years the pair slowly grew closer and without even realizing it fell in love and as a result the pair had a son and a few years later the couple would have a daughter as well, Natsu. As a child within the Leaf village, the child was brought up in a turbulent time in the world in which he was lucky enough to end up still having both of his parents at the end, but both taught him about how one should conduct themselves.
His mother teaming him about the will of fire that was already within while the swordsman of a father spoke of principles to live one's life and how one had to develop their sword heart to follow in life, something to anchor to and guide them through life. Koji naturally drew more towards his father while his sister gravitated towards their mother, as a child and young boy he was mesmerized with the sword arts that his father displayed and desired to learn. But his father would only shake his head and have him perform some type of chore or exercise saying that his body was not ready to learn about swordsmanship. Little did he know that the exercises and chorus were all a means to quietly train the body without letting him know that at the time.
Soon he was old enough to enter the academy and with both his parents blessing he entered though he did find himself struggling a bit at first understanding chakra as he'd always wanted to focus on sword play watching his father practicing kata and training others. But his mother was there to help tutor him with his question and help guide him towards the correct answers, always making him work for it and never just giving him the answer upfront. His years in the academy seemed like a blur as at the age of thirteen he would graduate and finally be able to wear his own headband like his mother and it was after this that the boy's father pulled him aside. He spoke with him that he believed the boy could combine the best of both words when it came to the heart of a swordsman and the village's will of fire to become a great man that his parents would be proud of. Soon after the man finally began teaching his son swordsmanship when the boy wasn't busy with his shinobi tasks.
Koji was able to rapidly progress as a young genin, due to being a little bit older than his counterparts and also in part due to the ninjutsu training he was able to recieve from his jounin mother and also the basic swordsmanship instruction that he was recieving from his father as well. But almost as important as the actual combat training he was recieving was also the spiritual training he was undergoing as he trained with his sword with the master swordsman, attempting to understand his own thoughts and feels and how to use those to empower the strength of his own blade. To achieve a state of mind known as 'one with the sword'. This training helped to propel him to the rank of chuunin after only a year and a half a genin but he has still yet to fully understand the true spirit of being a swordsman and only continued to train and better himself for the honor of his parents and the village. One day he wants to be able to show his will of the sword burns just as brightly as his will of fire.
