A ring worn by the user, Ignorance is considered to the greatest of the Evils. Once per post, by focusing chakra into Ignorance, the user can simply hold their hand up. Anything non-living (humans, spirits, pets) within direct alignment of their hand, up to 10m away from it, will lose all momentum, reducing it’s speed to 0.
Takumi has engraved the inside of the ring with the Hirohito symbol, and either wears it on his thumb, or keeps it hidden in a secret compartment inside his Hitai-ate around his neck.
Combat Style: Takumi specializes in support, and often will act as a strategist in battle and missions. He also serves as a combat medic. Takumi generally avoids direct conflict, and chooses long-ranged combat over close quarters. Generally, Taku will use defensive techniques to stay at a distance and avoid attempts to close the gap between fighters. He will use offensive jutsu to keep an opponent at bay. Takumi is best in group situations, and tries to avoid one on one conflict. Often, Takumi prefers stealth and trickery or diplomatic means as opposed to open combat.
Abilities and Concentrations
The Dendougan is a Kekkei Genkai that developed in Takumi. Although it is not well known, it has powerful abilities. By activating his Dendougan, Takumi can detect electronic signals. The eyes gain electromagnetic sensors, granting Taku access to view electric fields (much like a shark under water), and replaces his normal vision. While the Dendougan is activated, Takumi’s vision changes to one based off of these electrical fields. Takumi sees the electrical fields as waves of light, and can see the sources of the electricity such as muscle movement and the nerve center clearly. The Dendougan works better underwater. In particulates, Takumi can detect these electrical signals normally without interference. These signals can be seen through thin clothing, but other solids block the signals. Through various jutsu (channeled and otherwise), Takumi can also use this to detect electrical signals through walls and perform other feats. The Dendougan is capable of ability channeling, allowing Takumi to activate some techniques related to his Doujutsu without hand seals.
Because the Dendougan can be taxing on the eyes, the amount of posts Takumi can utilize his Doujutsu is based on his stamina stat. Takumi can keep his Dendougan active for a time equal to his stamina stat divided by 4 rounded down, to a minimum of one post. Upon reaching the max duration, the stress of using the doujutsu to it’s limit causes a cooldown period of 1/2 of the duration time, to a minumum of one post. During this cooldown period, the Dendougan cannot be activated and attempting to do so will cause physical pain. Duration is based off total posts where the Dendougan is activated, meaning Takumi can turn it on and off to have a shorter cooldown.
A character with this concentration is able to utilize Suiton, and can make and use any custom or archived jutsu that require the suiton affinity. Suiton has an enveloping effect.
A character with this concentration is able to utilize Fuuton, and can make and use any custom or archived jutsu that require the Fuuton affinity. Fuuton has a cutting effect.
A character with this concentration is able to utilize Mist, an extension composed of Fuuton and Suiton, and can make and use any custom or archived jutsu that require Mist. Mist has an encroaching effect. You must be a former or present Kiri shinobi and have both Suiton and Fuuton to utilize this concentration.
This concentration allows for the user to user chakra to affect the biological processes of a living creature. This includes modifying, speeding up, or slowing down the biological processes. Iijutsu is known for it's advanced nature and requires precise chakra control to work effectively. It can be differentiate from normal techniques by the faint light green colour of the chakra used in Iijutsu techniques.
After performing the correct hand seals the user will spray water created from the inside of their chest through their mouth. Once the water is expelled, it will form an umbrella shape that is concave to the user and about two meters in diameter. This defense is somewhat solid and can be formed in any direction the user can spit, up to five meters away. The defense is shot at a speed of 5 and has a strength of 5 and unless completely destroyed it lasts for three posts before falling lifelessly to the ground.
*Suiton • Propel Leap
After channeling chakra into their hands the user will fire two jets of water from their hand, essentially hurling and propelling themselves in the opposite direction of their jets as if thrown by a strength of 5.
After performing the correct hand seals the user creates a clone of themselves comprised completely of suiton chakra. This clone is incapable of jutsu, however it's liquid nature makes it a very capable taijutsu combatant.

D-Ranked Fuuton Jutsu
After performing the required hand seals, the user expels a basket ball sized ball of wind from their mouth. This ball of wind travels up to 20m at 5 speed, and explodes with the strength of a single explosive tag on contact with solid matter or at the end of its range.
Kirigakure no Jutsu is a Ninjutsu technique utilized by Hidden Mist Ninja. After forming the required hand seals, the ninja creates a blanket of mist which covers the area around them. The mist covers 20x20x20m area. The mist limits the visibility of those inside to 4 meters in any direction. This technique lasts a number of posts equal to 1/2 the user's stamina.
*Moving Mist Technique
After performing the correct hand seals, the user will cause the mist to shift and move in whatever direction they please. This mist moves at 5 speed, and while casting this technique the user cannot move or cast other techniques.
After performing the correct hand seals, the user slowly moves their hand down, stabilizing the mist in the area. D-rank fuuton jutsu will still work in the mist, but will no longer displace it, allowing the mist jutsu to be maintained easier. Additionally, the duration of the mist will be extended by 2 posts.
*Fading Mist Technique
After performing the correct hand seals, the user can control the transparency of the mist to become much more lucid or clear in a 2x2x2m area. If this is used on a blanket of mist with another's chakra within it, it requires a higher control stat than the caster. This increased visibility lasts for up to 3 posts.
While inside the mist, the user will form a series of hand seals, then hold a hand forward. From their hand 5 marble sized bullets of mist will form and shoot forward through the mist at 5 speed, with 5 strength.
After performing the correct seals, the user materializes and creates a clone of themselves. When destroyed, they explode in a poof of *Hidden Mist Technique. The hidden mist will release and burst outward from the clone. This acts as a good container and transportation for the mist jutsu. These clones can only use taijutsu. These clones have a taijutsu of 3, stamina of 3, strength of 1, and 5 in Speed. The clone exists for a maximum of 4 posts before detonating early.
While inside the mist, the user will perform the correct seals and clasp their hands to initiate the jutsu. The water will increase and substantially grow in thickness. This will make anything that enters or is within the mist experience -3 speed so long as they are inside it. This technique lasts 4 posts.
After performing the correct handseals, the user will focus on a 3x3x3m area of mist. This mist will then become extremely dense, weighing down with 10 strength. Anyone caught within this area with less than 10 strength will be unable to move.
*Shrouding Mist Technique
Prerequisite: Hidden Mist Technique
After forming the required hand seals, the ninja creates a blanket of mist which covers the area around them. The mist covers 30x30x30m area. The mist limits the visibility of those inside to 3 meters in any direction, and dampens scents, weakening any advanced scent techniques, or controlled scent techniques by 2m. This technique lasts a number of posts equal to the user's 1/2 stamina.
While inside the mist, the user will perform the correct seals and clasp their hands to initiate the jutsu. In response, the whole mist will become outstandingly thick with water. The opponent and anyone inside the mist will be able to move normally, but their breathing space will be limited and choked with water. This causes them to lose 1 point of stamina for every post they spend in the mist. This jutsu lasts for 9 posts.
When real latex gloves are not on hand, the *[Iijutsu • Chakra Gloves] technique comes in quite handy. After forming a single handseal, the user will focus chakra into his/her hands to form a thin layer of chakra around them. This chakra will help to protect other objects against the bacteria on the user's hands if sterilization is not an option before beginning a procedure. This technique can be held as long as the user has chakra.
*[Iijutsu • Chakra Mask]
Not unlike the *[Iijutsu • Chakra Gloves] technique, *[Iijutsu • Chakra Mask] shines when the real deal is not on hand. After forming a single handseal, the user will focus chakra into the area around his/her mouth and nose to form a thin layer of chakra around them. This chakra will help to keep the user from breathing bacteria onto a patient during procedures. This technique can be held as long as the user has chakra.
Typically used to make the autopsy process smoother, the *[Iijutsu • Skin Separation] technique separates the skin of the corpse from the underlying muscle. After focusing chakra into his/her hands, the user will slowly move them over the desired area, usually holding them about an inch away from the body itself. As the chakra is channeled through the flesh, it will slowly sink to the final layer of the skin and begin to form a new layer between the skin and the muscle beneath. After this layer has fully formed, the chakra will stay there for four (4) posts, allowing the user to easily separate the flesh and muscle. This non-combat technique cannot be used on living beings as the postmortem physiology is different from that of a living creature.
*[Iijutsu • Blood Clot Technique]
This highly useful field technique is applied to bleeding wounds to help encourage the coagulation of the blood. After focusing chakra into his/her hands, the user will hover them over the bleeding wound and begin to channel chakra through it. The chakra will began to thicken the blood, causing it to clot. Wounds must be dealt with one at a time, and the number of wounds that can be tended to within the three (3) posts that this technique lasts depends on their size. Small wounds take very little time to clot, while moderate wounds take one (1) post of concentration to clot, and large wounds take two (2) posts to clot. Although this technique stops the bleeding, the wound remains vulnerable and will require further care after this has been performed.
*[Iijutsu • Sterilization Technique]
As sanitation cannot always be guaranteed in field operations, this technique provides a quick substitute to traditional sterilization methods. After focusing chakra into his/her hands, the user will channel the chakra throughout his/her upper body (torso, arms, hands, face). This chakra will chew away at harmful bacteria and other foreign bodies on the skin, cleansing it until it is thoroughly sterile, and can be spread to objects, most commonly surgical tools. Of course, this takes both concentration and time, and in order to sterilize the entire upper body, it will take a duration of one (1) post. Users of this technique can also choose to sterilize certain parts of their upper body or the wounds of another person instead for a lesser concentration period. Once they are sanitized, they remain this way until coming in contact with more bacteria.
*[Iijutsu • Chakra Stitching]
When traditional stitching supplies aren't available, *[Iijutsu • Chakra Stitching] truly shines. After performing a short set of handseals, the user will gently place his/her index finger at the base of the patient's wound. Once this is done, the user will lift his/her finger and touch it to the other side of the wound, causing a visible 'stitch' of chakra to appear. This is repeated until the wound has been pulled together. Although precision is key, this technique can still be performed relatively quickly. Small to moderate wounds take very little time to stitch, while large wounds will take one (1) post of work to mend. This technique drains a minuscule amount of chakra from the person it is attached to in order to keep the stitches going, theoretically, ad-infinitum, and can be cancelled at any time by the user with a single handseal. Any intensive or strenuous movements will cause the stitches to break.
*[Iijutsu • Bandage Technique]
Prerequisite: *[Iijutsu • Sterilization Technique]
A simple yet vital medical technique, the *[/i]/color=#008b5e][Iijutsu • Bandage Technique][/i][/color] provides its users with the ability to create makeshift bandages out of any suitable material they desire. After channeling chakra into an object (such as a leaf, piece of cloth, etc.), the user is able to apply it to the wound of a patient. Once applied, the selected object will adhere to the flesh around the wound, protecting it from bacteria and other harmful foreign bodies. Objects used for the bandage technique are automatically sterilized in the process. These bandages drain a minuscule amount of chakra from the person it is attatched to in order to keep them stuck on, theoretically, ad-infinitum, and can be cancelled at any time by the user with a single handseal. While not as effective at stopping bleeding as the [Iijutsu • Chakra Stitching] technique, they hold on much better in the case that strenuous movement is necessary.
Prerequisite: 5 Iijutsu
Perhaps one of the most important Iijutsu techniques to date, the *[Iijutsu • Medical Diagnosis Technique] allows its users to probe another's body in search for medical answers. After focusing chakra into his/her hands, the user will begin to channel it into the patient's body. Using this chakra as an internal extension of his/her hand to feel for abnormalities and other issues, the user is often able to determine the problem after some time and concentration. In order for a thorough examination to provide sufficient answers, the user will focus for up to one (1) post, seeking signs of internal and external damage, organ malfunction and disease among other ailments. Although skilled medical-nin have the possibility to work faster, skill cannot be substituted in for thoroughness.
*[Iijutsu • Skin Mask]
Prerequisite: *[Iijutsu • Skin Separation]
This particularly disturbing technique is typically utilized by medical-nin operating covertly. After obtaining a dead body, the user will use the *[Iijutsu • Skin Separation] technique to carefully remove the facial skin from the underlying tissue. Once this has been done, the user will begin to focus channel chakra into the separated skin before applying it to his/her face. As this chakra makes contact with the user's skin, the skin cells will bond, creating a seamless mask. This new face remains stable for up to thirty (30) total posts before it will begin to rot. This technique does not remove facial wounds or rot from the face in question, it only allows the user to bind it to his/her own face.
S-Rank Taijutsu Discipline
Wow. Such smart. You know literally everything. What a terrible curse.
Through the centuries, the Arashi had developed their own religion, which Takumi practices. The basic tenets of the religion focused on three deities, Banrai, Makaze and Nanmei. Each god represented one of the three elements sacred to every Arashi member: Lightning, Wind and Water. And to complete the trio of sacred trios, the Arashi family members also worshipped three animals, the Thunderbird, a mythical being that is said to carry Banrai and bring storms, the turtle, the protective being and personal companion of Nanmei, and the shark, a being that, like some Arashi members who have developed their sacred and secret doujutsu, can detect electromagnetic waves. Taku himself always felt that the shark was a little heavy-handed, but some of his fellow family members embraced the violent nature of the oceanic predator. For some sects, the title “Samebito” – “Shark-man” was a great honor given only to the most vicious members of the faith. Those vicious sects never appealed to Takumi, who always favored the other aspects of the Arashi faith.
Takumi’s mother is Arashi Kasumi. She was born into the Dokuyaku family, and met her future husband when they were young. She is a medic-nin, and along with her relatives, runs a small clinic in the slums in order to help those less fortunate. Like many of the Dokuyaku (who own a number of farms and greenhouses in the village), she is bled to the Kawazaiwa family.
Takumi’s father, Arashi Masaru, is a powerful Jounin and a renowned assassin for the Karagata family and a member of HHD. A kind and loving father and husband, Masaru encourages free thinking and challenging of indoctrination. In stark contrast to his family life, Masaru is a vicious killer who does not hesitate to fight for Kirigakure and the Karagata family. Masaru proudly wears his shark tooth necklace that signifies him as a “Samebito” in his faith.
Takumi’s paternal grandfather is known in the Arashi faith as “Seiryu” and is a religious leader. He runs a small bookstore on the edge of the Arashi Compound, where he sells books, scrolls, and various knickknacks.
As a member of the Arashi family, Taku was raised in their unique customs. He, like all Arashi family members, worshipped their three deities, and he practiced meditation every day. The Arashi religion was a combination of Buddhism, Taoism and Shinto. The Arashi family worshiped three main deities. According to their faith, the first, named Banrai, commanded both thunder and lightning. The next, the God of Wind was named Makaze. The final god, and most important to the Arashi family, was the goddess of storms and seas, Nanmei. According to the faith, Nanmei was born from a white lotus (hence the family symbol), and travelled on a turtle to the Water Country, where she and her fellow deities gave a rare gift of the Dendougan, a doujutsu that allowed a shinobi to see electrical signals.
From the time he could stand, he was trained in the art of the shinobi. Although Taku did show promise, his true ability had not yet revealed itself. Latent in Takumi’s body was the ability to activate the Dendougan, a doujutsu that gave his eyes electromagnetic sensors. At a young age, Takumi found his passion in medicine, and seemed destined to follow in his mother’s footsteps. He was also excellent at Ninjutsu in general, which made his father proud.
Takumi’s passion for medicine came from his deep desire to learn. Any chance he could get, Taku would pick up a book or a scroll and learn as much as possible. By the time he was enrolled in the Second Military Academy, he knew most of the information taught in the first six months. Unfortunately for Takumi, he had a very inquisitive mind, which did not respond well to the constant drilling of the Ninja Code of Conduct. While he accepted most tenants of the code, and truly wished to help his village, he questioned the social order, and felt a more egalitarian society could prove beneficial. Takumi was excellent at Ninjutsu, and recognized that his Taijutsu and Genjutsu needed work, and was able to correct for his weaknesses. Because of his understanding of his strengths and weaknesses, Taku was quite successful in the Academy, but his failure to accept the indoctrination caused him to fail. Takumi was forced to retake the Academy in the third level. There, Takumi realized his mistake from before, and remained the quiet, dutiful member of society his superiors expected. Again, Taku was successful in all the tests, and finally passed. As a freshly appointed Genin, Arashi Takumi was finally ready to serve Kirigakure no Sato.
