Inken, Nikuya

Post by Archives » Wed Feb 17, 2016 7:42 am

General Information Age: 18
Gender: Female
Height: 5'3"
Weight: 147 lbs
Physical Features:
  • Face/head: Niku has black hair, usually kept in a ponytail. The ponytail, however, is rather long, reaching all the way down to mid thigh. She has light brown eyes, almost appearing mustard in hue.
  • Body: Niku, being on the shorter side of average, has a notably lithe form, developed through years of physical hard work. While her curves are modest, her tiny waist often gives away her womanly nature. Her skin is quite pale, noticeable scars littered along her arms from all of her hard training.
  • Notable Features: Her most notable feature is likely her pale skin.
Clothing/Accessories: Niku has adopted a semi-samurai type of dress. She wears a black, long sleeve, turtle neck that leaves her midsection uncovered. She wears Dragon's Skin, a black chestplate with large brown shoulder coverings, over the aforementioned shirt as well as some brown bicep coverings and brown gauntlets that are stylistically matching of the shoulder coverings. Niku also wears a pair of brown pants with wooden coverings over her thighs. She wears black knee-high boots and a red sash around her waist. She also has six fuuins, all of which are Fuuinjutsu • Sheath Seal, placed across her body: one on each brown gauntlet, one on the outside of each knee on her pants, and one on each shoulder covering .During missions, Niku will also wear Desire, a black cloak known as one of the Legendary Evils.
Young NikuShow
  • General: Niku is playful and good natured, being socially tactful rather than brutally honesty. Through her experiences, Niku has become mostly calm and collected, able to take the world in without getting heavily distracted or emotionally distraught.
  • Hopes/Dreams: Niku hopes to exceed the expectations of those who've helped raise her into who she is. This includes her mother and grandfather, but also teachers and mentors that she's had along the way.
  • Fears: Niku fears that she'll never find 'the one', her soulmate that will complete her. On top of that, she fears that the only notion of completion and soulmates is factually inaccurate. She also worries about failing those who believe in her.
  • Combat Mentality: Niku is not opposed to playing with her opponent, but usually only if she has complete confidence that she is stronger than the opponent. More often, Niku will attempt to end a battle quickly, using her inhuman speed and Iaido kenjutsu to deliver a deadly blow. In times when a direct confrontation are not feasible, she will use her speed and Doton techniques to distract and confuse opponents until a fatal blow can be dealt.

Equipment Generic
For missions, Niku will carry a brown, leather satchel over her right shoulder. The satchel has a small pocket on the front, which holds 3 smoke pellets, while the main compartment houses 4 kunai with attached exploding tags and a basic first aid kit which includes bandages, gauze, and tape.

Dragon's Skin
A chestplate, with attached shoulder coverings, that's been passed down through the Inken family for generations. Legend has it that it was crafted from the toughened skin of a fierce, yellow dragon, slayed by one of Niku's ancestors. In its current state, Dragon Skin is capable of withstanding 50 strength attacks.

Cardinal Directions
Quantity: Four
Identical wakizashi that were given to her by her grandfather. A collection of swords are named after North, South, East, and West, the Cardinal Winds. They are relatively basic weapons, measuring 30 inches from tip to end, with a 20 inch blade and a 10 inch handle. The weapons have a green sheath and a green threaded handle. She carries two of the swords on her left hip, one just a bit higher than the other, and the other two are similarly placed on her right hip.

Ordinal Directions
Quantity: Four
To an onlooker, this sword appears similar to a wakizashi having a slight curve, a 20 inch blade, and a 6 inch handle. The most noticeable difference being a 4 inch blade extending from the bottom of the handle and some holes located near the tip of the blade. However, there is more to the sword than first appearances.
Designed by Niku, Ordinal Directions consist of a single piece of sharpened metal which makes up the blade, measuring 30 inches in length; however, unlike most swords, the blade is pointed at both ends. At each end, there are three holes which form a slightly curved line with the first one located about 5 inches from the tip with about 2 inches between each hole. The blade has a groove starting at the last hole, closest to the tip, and ending at the opposite hole near the other tip of the blade. A 6 inch handle, which mirrors the slight curve of the blade, is attached over the blade such that the handle can slide freely along the groove of the blade. Inside the handle are 3 retractable pegs, one in the center and one on each side about 2 inches from the center peg. These pegs align with the holes of the blade. With a push of the button, the pegs will be retracted and allowing the handle to slide along the blade's groove to the other set of holes. Rather than having to change her grip on the handle, this sword allows Niku to change from an earth facing grip to a standard grip, or vice versa. Inside the handle is the *Storage Fuuinjutsu • Tool Storage which allows Niku to seal the blade inside the handle. Upon closer inspection, the curvature of the Ordinal Directions matches the curvature of her other swords, the Cardinal Directions, meaning this weapon can utilize the sheathes of those weapons as well.
Relative Directions
Quantity: 6
A group of chakrams that measure 10 inches in diameter with a width of approximately 2 inches. The ring has a dark, matte finish preventing reflections from coming off the metal. The outer edge has been sharpened heavily, rivaling any of Niku’s swords in pure cutting ability. She has a holster on each thigh which holds 3 chakram. Uniquely, Niku has cast a 5 cm x 5 cm piece of Desire into each chakram, allowing her to control the weapons at any time, even mid-flight. This control happens at a speed and strength equal to her Desire stat.

Vertical Directions
Quantity: 2
Finding her wakizashi ineffectual for use with Shinden, Niku's designed this rather barbaric looking sword. The sword has a blade measuring 30 inches in length, growing thicker near its tip in order to increase its cutting capability, though it also retains a rather pronounced piercing point. A wooden handle extends from the blade approximately 30 inches, having three sections of leather grips, one at each end and one in the middle. The handle also has a metal ring on the end. Most interestingly, the sword's long handle secretly acts as a sheath for a hidden blade, reminiscent of a cane sword. With a slight twist, the last 6 inches of the sword's wooden handle can detach allowing Niku to use Iaido techniques to draw the hidden blade which has a short 6 inch handle and a 19 inch blade.

What is best described as a cloak, Desire is a large piece of fabric woven with an indistinguishable material. It has a corded border, and several points that join together that can be utilized to join it around a neck like a cloak. However, if all the points are brought together, it functions as a bag. The cloak can be manipulated with the user’s 'Desire' weapon stat, and has strength equal to the weapon stat, allowing it to be effective for capturing. However, Desire also masks the chakra signatures of anything within it, and muffles all sound. This makes it very good at reconnaissance, and sometimes, smuggling. The cloak is 2m x 3m in size, but through focus can be expanded up to double that to 4m x 6m in size. However, upon closer inspection, one can see a small portion of the robe's longer edge has been removed, measuring about 60cm x 5cm.
Abilities, Concentrations, and Styles

Rebirth of a Dragon Niku has learned of her destiny to become the next Yellow Dragon. As she moves on that path of Awakening, Niku gains access to the inhuman powers of the Yellow Dragon. The specialist stat, Awakening, is used to track Niku's access to these dragon-like powers, as indicated by the table below. Once her Awakening stat reaches the appropriate benchmark, Niku has access to that ability at all times. On top of those abilities, Niku is able to enter a new state, titled Dragon Form, which receives a variety of boosts but can only be maintained for 5 posts.
Awakened Dragon
Awakening StatPowers and Boosts
1Niku develops a spiritual connection between herself and her armor, Dragon's Skin, which allows the dragon's energy to flow through them both, slowly causing her chakra to take on a yellow hue which becomes more prevalent as her Awakening stat gets higher. She also gains heightened senses.
Dragon Form Boosts: N/A
10Niku gains the ability to fly despite a lack of wings or other means of flight. This flight is in adherence to all of the flight rules, where her flight speed is limited by Awakening or Speed, whichever is lower. The effects of weightlessness can be a bit overly demanding so for every Awakening stat under 25, Niku experiences a minus to her Endurance; meaning at 10 Awakening, she'd experience a -15 to Endurance while in flight. Once she reaches 25 Awakening, she'll be able to fly without any ill effects to her Endurance.
Dragon Form Boosts: +2 Chakra pool, +1 Endurance, +1 Strength, +1 Speed
20From within her own body, Niku is able to summon yellow, dragon scales to cover her entirety. These scales have an Endurance equal to her Awakening Stat.
Dragon Form Boosts: +3 Chakra pool, +3 Endurance, +2 Strength, +2 Speed
30Due to the Yellow Dragon's connection with the earth, Niku is able to cast doton techniques based on her Awakening stat (rather than Control).
Dragon Form Boosts: +4 Chakra pool, +4 Endurance, +4 Strength, +3 Speed
40Niku's body develops the dragon's regenerative abilities, which fall in line with the Regenerative Ability rules utilizing Awakening rather than Control.
Dragon Form Boosts: +4 Chakra pool, +4 Endurance, +4 Strength, +3 Speed
50As a medium between this world and the spiritual realm, Niku's summons (the ones registered as companions) are able to possess an object that Niku has treated with her chakra indefinitely despite possessions usually being temporary. While the summons are possessing an object, also known as a Joruri, they do not draw from Niku's chakra; however, they will begin to draw from her chakra once they end their possession.
Dragon Form Boosts: +5 Chakra pool, +5 Endurance, +5 Strength, +5 Speed
Doton Affinity
A character with this concentration is able to utilize Doton, and can make and use any custom or archived jutsu that require the doton affinity. Doton has a passive enduring effect.
Passive (Enduring)Show
Doton has a passive effect of Endurance, which means that it's power is retained throughout the entirety of the jutsu. All of a single doton jutsu retains the strength of the jutsu, even after the jutsu has been destroyed, and unlike other jutsu, doton does not fade when destroyed. This means that if a doton barrier with 25 strength is cut in half and falls to the ground, a part of that barrier could be picked up and carried as a hand held shield which would still have 25 strength, despite being a fractured part of a jutsu. This creates incredibly potent defenses, making doton a popular affinity among defensive fighters.
Storage & Force Fuuinjutsu:
Storage & Force Fuuinjutsu
This user is able to utilize Storage Fuuinjutsu and Force Fuuinjutsu, making it possible for them to utilize any jutsu with the Storage or Force Classification. Storage Fuuinjutsu can be used to store supplies, weapons, armor, or anything in between. Force Fuuinjutsu are used to release, counteract, and capture energy.

Style Descriptions
Dragon's Senses:
A style unique to Niku, the entirety of the techniques within this style incorporate tracking people through the use of Niku's enhanced senses.

Requires: [Perception] Concentration.
Flawless Aim:
This style of combat is favored by shinobi preferring to use projectiles, often serving as a staple for ranged taijutsu users. Focusing on the synergy between their hands and senses, they strive to make their lethal skills reach as far as possible with absolute precision.

Requires: [Projectile Weapons] Concentration.
Fusion Techniques:
Having studied many different sword styles, Niku has begun to apply teachings from varying styles into single techniques. These techniques then fall into both sword styles simultaneously.

Requires: Concentrations that are required for the denoted Styles.
Iaido Kenjutsu:
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.
Shinden Kenjutsu:
Emerging from the depths of the Marsh Country, Shinden is a style of Kenjutsu that focuses on one thing and one thing alone: overwhelming strength. While not completely forsaking flexibility, Shinden techniques are traditionally structured around downward slashes. The user lifts their weapon over their shoulder or above their head, both their strength and gravity bringing death crashing down onto their enemies. Due to this quirk unique to Shinden, while sufficiently performed with a katana, users of this style typically prefer heavier blades such as Nodachi, Odachi, and even Zanbatou. These large weapons further enhance the natural strengths the style's core mechanics provide, forgoing defense for brute strength and overwhelming power.

Requires: [Rigid Structure] Concentration; one of [Sword Weapons], [Polearm Weapons], or [Hafted Weapons] Concentration.
Toryu Kenjutsu:
Toryu, a style of Kenjutsu founded in the Land of Pebbles, melds traditional kenjutsu swordplay with subversive feints and sudden bursts of close-quarters combat, two unyielding hills crashing together to form a mountain. Toryu typically favors the use of the blade with one hand, utilizing the freedom of movement to use one's hands, joints, legs, head, and even the hilt and handle of the sword to make an already deadly style more unpredictable and more lethal. Ignorantly considered a very "unrefined" style by most practitioners of the sword, Toryu is actually one of the most difficult styles of Kenjutsu to learn and master. The very basic premise of the style revolves around the firm control and manipulation of one's own movements and body, some techniques requiring execution while using another attack as a feint or misdirection while not sacrificing strength. The style has no weapon requirements outside of a sword, but many users often prefer kodachi, wakizashi, ninjato, or even tanto, the reduced size and weight of the blades having fewer blind spots and making the user's weapon more mobile.

Requires: [Close Quarters Combat], [Sword Weapons] Concentrations.
Yoshin Kenjutsu:
Waterfall Country's samurai are the creators of Yoshin, a style of Kenjutsu honing one's precision to strike more precisely than any needle or arrow at the enemy's inherent weaknesses. The human body is full of natural weak spots and vulnerabilities, and Yoshin takes full advantage of those weaknesses in combat with calculated, precise, intelligent strikes and thrusts to cripple and cut down their opponent. Common joints, unseen nerve endings and nerve clusters, critical tendons and muscle groups, and even vital organs are all fair game to the users of Yoshin. The precision required for this style causes most users of its techniques to prefer short blades such as kodachi and wakizashi, often with serrated edges to maximize damage on the blade exiting the wound, though katana can still be used with this style.

Requires: [Deft Hands], [Sword Weapons], [Medicine] Concentrations.

[Ninjutsu • Finger Pull]
E-Ranked Ninjutsu
Utilizing the basics of Act of Tree Climbing, this technique focuses chakra to the tip of Niku's finger as she places it onto one of her chakrams. With just a touch, she can adhere the weapon to her finger allowing her to draw the weapon from its holster.

*[Ninjutsu • Wall]
D-Ranked Ninjutsu
After performing the correct hand seals the user causes a thin 3x3x1 meter flat barrier to form within 10 meters of them at [Control] Speed and has [Control] Strength. It lasts for 3 posts.

*[Ninjutsu • Sensory Deprivation: Sight]
D-Ranked Ninjutsu
A technique used for a variety of purposes, each unique to the user's needs, the user channels chakra over their eyes. This chakra will act as though it were solid, rendering the user blind until it is dispelled. This can be held as long as the user has chakra, but once it has ended, it has a cool-down period of 2 posts before it can be used again.
*Doton • Binding Formation
D-Rank Ninjutsu
After channeling doton chakra into their foot the user will slam the ground within 5 meters of a target's feet with their heel, causing a formation of rock to shoot upwards at [Control] speed binding the target's feet at [Control] strength

*Doton • Dirt Cloud
D-Rank Ninjutsu
After performing the correct hand seals the user will form a 1 meter diameter ball of loose dirt in front of them, launching it off up to 10 meters away at [Control] strength and speed. Upon impact the ball of loose dirt breaks apart forming a vision-impairing cloud of dirt with a 5 meter radius.

*Doton • Wall
D-Rank Ninjutsu
After performing the correct hand seals the user will form a solid stone wall up to 5 meters away from them at [Control] speed. The wall has [Control] strength and is 3x3x1 meters large.

Doton • Stone Path
C-Rank Ninjutsu
After the handseals, Niku will tap her foot to the ground causing sixteen, 1m x 1m square stones about 3 inches in width to form along the ground at a speed of [Control]. The stones are no longer part of the ground, simply laying atop it, able to easily be picked up if desired. The stones have a strength equal to [Control] and are laying about an inch apart from each other in a 4 x 4 pattern with Niku standing near the middle.

Doton • Launched Floor
C-Rank Ninjutsu
Doton • Stone Path or advancement
After the necessary handseals, Niku will tap her foot to the ground, rushing more Doton chakra into the Stone Path created previously. Within the next 3 posts, Niku can cause one of the stones to launch about 1m into the air with a strength and speed equal to [Control]. However, if someone has higher strength, they can resist being launched into the air. Of note, if the target resists being launched and their strength exceeds the strength of the stone (designated by the jutsu used to create it) then the stone will naturally break, sending debris into the air around the target.
*Storage Fuuinjutsu • Tool Storage
D-Rank Fuuinjutsu
After drawing a seal formula on a surface, ensuring it is large enough for the object that is about to be stored. The user will then begin placing the object into the seal. The user can only seal objects up to their ([Control]*2)m^3 in size.

*Storage Fuuinjutsu • Sealing Defense
D-Rank Fuuinjutsu
By having an empty surface with a seal formula placed on it, the user is able to use the seal as a defensive measure. Holding a single, one-handed hand seal, the user attempts to block the incoming projectile with the surface. Right before contact is actually made, the projectile will be sealed into the seal. While strong, the seal must be the same size or larger than the projectile it is attempting to seal. This seal can protect up to the user’s [Control] in Strength. Once used to seal and then release again, the seal will need to be rewritten. The user can only seal objects up to their ([Control]*2)m^3 in size.

Fuuinjutsu • Sheath Seal
C-Rank Storage Fuuinjutsu
*Storage Fuuinjutsu • Sealing Defense, *Storage Fuuinjutsu • Tool Storage
A fuuin designed by Niku utilizing the essentially combining the two prerequisites. By holding a single one-handed handseal, Niku can use this seal akin to a sheath, allowing her to draw her blade from the seal and resheath the weapon all in one go. This seal allows Niku to utilize Iaido techniques at full capacity and resheath weapons as needed within this seal.
*[Sensory Style • Beyond Senses]
C-Rank Ninjutsu
Prerequisites: 10 Control
This sensor jutsu is used by shinobi to feel chakra sources within a radius of 25 meters. While this jutsu is fairly helpful in sensing chakra, it is unable to actually pinpoint specific chakras outside of 10 feet. This only gives the Shinobi an idea of how many entities with chakra are present in their general area.

*[Sensory Style • Flare]
C-Rank Ninjutsu
Prerequisites: *[Sensory Style • Beyond Senses]
The sensor will activate their sensory jutsu, and then do a second set of hand seals. For the next 5 posts, any time anyone within the range of their sensory activates a jutsu, the user will see their chakra “flare” momentarily. While they won’t know anything about the jutsu, it will give them a better idea of the battle field.
Dragon's SensesShow
[Dragon's Senses • Sixth Sense]
C-Ranked Taijutsu Discipline
Prerequisite: Sensor
After initiating *[Sensory Style • Beyond Senses] or an extension of it, Niku's Dragon Senses incorporate the new sensory input. While Niku's Sensory range is cut in half of what the initial sensory technique states as well as any subsequent sensory techniques, Niku is able to sense chakra without the heavy restraint of complete concentration and immobilization. This discipline does not remove the need for handseals on Sensory jutsu that require them.

[Dragon's Senses • Synesthesia]
B-Ranked Taijutsu Discipline
Prerequisite: [Dragon's Senses • Sixth Sense] or advancement
In order to handle the large assortment of information entering her mind, Niku's brain has developed the ability to display the Sensory information in an easy to use format. Sensory information will resemble a mini-map in her visual field: chakra-colored, out-of-focus dots indicating the general direction of sensed chakra sources will be present and once she gets in a range to which she can sense the source more accurately, the dots will become brighter and more defined. While the map includes no topographical information, it does automatically reorient itself as Niku changes directions.

[Dragon's Senses • Smell ya Later]
B-Ranked Taijutsu Discipline
After practicing with her Dragon Senses, Niku has become able to differentiate the scents of individuals. This discipline allows Niku to track people by scent alone.

[Dragon's Senses • Database]
B-Ranked Taijutsu Discipline
Niku has trained her brain to file all relevant information that she's processed together and accurately recall that info in a near instantaneous manner. For example, if she were to smell a person's scent that she recognized, she could quickly match that scent with any other information that she may have previously gotten regarding it, including name, appearance, combat proclivities, village of origin, etc. While this is a taijutsu technique, it is still capable of filing information received from ninjutsu techniques allowing Niku to also file chakra signatures with this technique.

[Dragon's Senses • Night Vision]
B-Ranked Taijutsu Discipline
Niku's vision allows her to see more clearly than normal humans: this technique is evidence of that. Even in the dark of night, Niku can see pretty clearly; however, her vision still requires ambient light, like a cat's, meaning she can't see in complete darkness. With this technique, star light or half a moon emit enough light for the kunoichi to see as if the sun were out.

[Dragon's Senses • Feel the Air]
A-Ranked Taijutsu Discipline
Having practiced so extensively with her Dragon Senses, Niku has become able to feel the difference in air pressure around her. Any time an object, person, or jutsu moves within a number of meters equal to her Endurance stat, Niku can feel the air in her vicinity move and determine in which direction the person or object is moving. This allows Niku to know if something is moving towards her or away from her, at what speed it is moving, and roughly how large it is.

[Dragon's Senses • Master of Speed]
A-Ranked Taijutsu Discipline
Having devoted her life to speed, Niku has become a master of speed itself. Utilizing a 50 point scale, Niku is more readily able to compare the speed of things, people or jutsu that are in motion, as long as they don't exceed her own Speed stat. The scale is also useful for choosing her own speed, allowing her the ability to move at any speed which doesn't exceed her own speed stat.

[Dragon's Senses • Heart Monitor]
A-Ranked Taijutsu Discipline
Niku has discovered that she can hear the beating of a person's heart when they are within a certain range (Endurance/5 m). Heart beats are also unique so, if within range, she can determine a person's identity through hearing alone assuming she's heard the heartbeat previously.

[Dragon's Senses • Advanced Sixth Sense]
A-Ranked Taijutsu Discipline
Prerequisite: Sensor, [Dragon's Senses • Sixth Sense]
After initiating *[Sensory Style • Beyond Senses] or an extension of it, Niku's Dragon Senses incorporate the new sensory input. Now that Niku's ability has developed further, her Sensory range is unhindered and she is able to sense chakra without the heavy restraint of complete concentration and immobilization. This discipline does not remove the need for handseals on Sensory jutsu that require them.
Flawless AimShow
*[Flawless Aim Style • Uncanny Shot]
B-Rank Taijutsu Discipline
After much training and study, the practitioner is able to launch projectiles from previously impossible positions. This Discipline represents the practitioner's ability to launch projectile attacks without any detriment to their aim regardless of the position of their body. This includes while contorting their body or making rapid adjustments such as dodging attacks or performing acrobatic maneuvers.

*[Flawless Aim Style • Intercepting Shot]
B-Rank Taijutsu Maneuver
The practitioner is able to launch a projectile in the direct path of an oncoming solid mass attack (i.e. Doton). If the Strength of this projectile meets or exceeds the Strength of the attack it is clashing against, the attack is deflected away from the practitioner. If the projectile is only slightly weaker than the attack (-5 Strength or less), the attack is still partially deflected, though the practitioner must supplement their defense with other techniques or movements to fully avoid the attack. The practitioner must still be able to detect and track the attack in order to defend against it.

[Flawless Aim Style • Chakram Mastery]
B-Ranked Taijutsu Discipline
Niku has completely mastered the Relative Directions meaning that she can utilize them for ranged combat as well as for unconventional usages, like melee combat, without fear of injuring herself.

[Flawless Aim Style • Finger Shot]
B-Ranked Taijutsu Maneuver
Prerequisite: [Ninjutsu • Finger Pull]
After the prerequisite, Niku can draw her hand forward in a single motion, releasing the adherence on the chakram at the exact moment to send the chakram hurtling forward at Niku's full strength.

[Flawless Aim Style • Angled Shot]
B-Rank Taijutsu Maneuver
Niku is able to throw her chakram at an angle somewhere between horizontal and vertical which causes the ring to have a curved path. Niku can use this altered path to cause the chakram to go around most obstacles, being able to accurately hit a target that is behind obstructions as if they were in the open. This technique can be combined with other chakram throwing maneuvers.

*[Flawless Aim Style • Absolute Aim]
A-Rank Taijutsu Discipline
Having mastered the art of ranged combat, the practitioner is capable of calculating all outside factors before launching their projectiles. Ambient factors such as temperature, winds, moisture, any terrain, and even lack of sight on their target can not hinder their aim. So long as they have a means of detecting the location of their opponent and no impassible objects or unavoidable defenses stand in their way, the practitioner's attacks will strike their target with pinpoint accuracy without fail. Living targets must have a Perception technique equal or higher in rank to be able to dodge the practitioner's attacks without some sort of additional defense.

*[Flawless Aim Style • Sniper’s Mark]
A-Rank Taijutsu Maneuver
Focusing for half a post and torquing every single muscle in their body, the practitioner concentrates on their target and launches a single, long-distance projectile attack. This attack can strike its target without losing Strength, Speed, or Accuracy up to [(Speed + Strength)/2] x 100 meters, rounded down.
Fusion TechsShow
[Shinden • Smash 'n' Iaido • Draw]
D-Rank Kenjutsu Maneuver
After rushing past a target's defenses, Niku will slam the shoulder of her drawing hand into the chest of her opponent. The contact will immediately be followed by Niku's draw, aiming for the opponent's midsection.

[Iaido • See 'n' Toryu • Defend]
C-Rank Taijutsu Maneuver
Utilizing Iaido's heightened perceptive abilities and Toryu's barehanded proclivity, Niku is able to read the angles of incoming attacks to use the flat of her hand against the flat of the blade in order to push weapons away without getting cut. This jutsu can be used on swords as well as projectiles; however, the successful use of this jutsu relies on Niku's speed exceeding the attack's speed.

[Yoshin • Amputation 'n' Iaido • Draw]
C-Rank Kenjutsu Maneuver
After stepping up beside the target or sidestepping an attack from the target, Niku will unleash an Iaido draw targeted at the opponent's wrist or elbow. The desire is to amputate the appendage, but, utilizing Yoshin's medical knowledge, targeting the joints can also cause the target problems utilizing their hand if the amputation isn't complete.

[Yoshin • Bladed 'n' Iaido • Barraged]
C-Ranked Taijutsu Maneuver
As a means of disguising her reliance on Iaido, Niku will rush forward, dual wielding wakizashi, laying a barrage of thrusts at her target. Despite being able to perform this technique at top speed, Niku's highly perceptive abilities allow her to take in even the slightest of her opponent's movements, allowing her to perform thrusts that seemingly counter where her opponent intended to go next. Anyone who's speed is higher than Niku's speed will be able to effectively avoid the barrage.

[Iaido • See 'n' Toryu • Parry]
B-Ranked Taijutsu Maneuver
Prerequisite: [Iaido • See 'n' Toryu • Defend]
Utilizing her naturally heightened perception, Niku has mastered the ability to parry incoming attacks with either her hand or blade. Doing so correctly allows Niku to redirect the attack's strength rather than taking on the full force of it. As long as her speed is higher than the speed of the attack, Niku can utilize this maneuver to diminish the attack's strength by 6.

[Shinden • Brace 'n' Yoshin • Yourself]
B-Ranked Taijutsu Discipline
Niku has trained her body to attempt to avoid deadly blows. This technique utilizes Yoshin's medical knowledge to, at the last moment, move her own body so that an incoming strike will miss all of her vital areas, but also utilizes Shinden's rigid body to tense up her body in an attempt to lessen any damage that may occur. Niku's hope is that with both aspects in play at one time, she'll be able to avoid death for many years.

[Iaido • Draw 'n' Shinden • Buzzsaw]
A-Ranked Taijutsu Maneuver
Prerequisite: [Projectile Weapons] concentration, [Shinden • Cleaving Strike]
Utilizing the basics of Iaido to draw her sword at immense speeds and the basics of projectile weapons, Niku will draw her blade and release mid-draw, sending it hurtling through the air at an enemy. Because of the way in which she releases, the sword spins with immense speed (equal to the speed of the draw) and moves forward at a speed equal to Niku's strength and, like the prerequisite, is able to cut through weapons or armor which have less Endurance.

[Toryu • Grab 'n' Shinden • Take]
A-Ranked Taijutsu Maneuver
Niku will attempt to grab a weapon that is swung at her. If her speed is higher than the speed of the attack, her chances of successfully grabbing the weapon is much higher and she will then attempt to yank the weapon from its wielder. If her strength is higher than the strength of the wielder, she will be able to take the weapon from them.

[Yoshin • Pressure 'n' Toryu • Points]
A-Ranked Taijutsu Maneuver
Utilizing Yoshin's medical expertise, Niku will target a Toryu poke to one of the opponents' pressure points. If her speed is higher than the targets', the poke will have a much higher chance of success. If the target's pressure point is successfully poked, the target will feel a jolt of electric-like pain shoot through the closest appendage and their strength will be weakened by 9 for the next 2 posts.

[Yoshin • Quad 'n' Iaido • Draw]
S-Ranked Taijutsu Maneuver
Prerequisite: 40 speed
Utilizing Yoshin's focus on extreme accuracy, Niku has developed this Iaido draw which utilizes four, incredibly quick draws in tandem. Niku aims her blade to strike the exact same spot four times at practically the same instant without sacrificing strength or speed. Designed for slicing through heavy armors or barriers, Niku will have a better chance of successfully landing all four strikes if Niku's speed is higher than the target's.

[Toryu • Bladeless 'n' Iaido • Draw]
S-Ranked Taijutsu Maneuver
Prerequisite: *[Toryu • Granite Epitaph]
Utilizing her bare hand, Niku is able to move her arm at such speed that her hand is able to rend flesh and bone as if it were a sword. As long as Niku's strength is higher than the target's Endurance, her hand will be able to slice through the target.
[Iaido • Extension of the Body]
D-Rank Kenjutsu Discipline
Due to considerable time practicing and using the blades listed below, Niku has mastered the length of these blades. Using these weapons is like using her arms and legs allowing her attacks to be anywhere from deadly to damaging, from demeaning to simply distracting. She can cut a person's clothes or cut their hair without any worry of hurting them. This could also be described as having a complete understanding of her attack range with any of the weapons below. Other swords may be added to this jutsu at a cost equal to another D rank jutsu.
  • Cardinal Directions
  • Ordinal Directions
*[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 • One with the Sheath]
D-Rank Taijutsu Discipline
Prerequisite(s): 8 Speed.
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 • 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.

[Iaido • Samurai's Domain]
C-Rank Kenjutsu Discipline
Prerequisite: [Iaido • Extension of the Body]
With a glance, Niku has become able to accurately determine the length of any weapons that are plainly visible, meaning she cannot determine the lengths of any hidden, pouched, or sealed weapons until they are brought out into the open. Likewise, weapons with unique abilities or techniques which allow them to extend will be outside of her purview. Niku can even gauge a sheathed weapon's length. With this information, Niku will be able to determine the opponent's attack range, which allows her to evade the opponents' attacks more easily with the smallest amount of movement.

*[Iaido • One with the Spirit]
B-Rank Taijutsu Discipline
Prerequisite(s): *[Iaido • One with the Sheath], *[Iaido • One with the Sword].
Through incredible amounts of practice, the practitioner of Iaido has learned his weapon and its housing inside and out. The user of this weapon can now reflexively sheath their sword in its scabbard almost instantaneously by instinct with either one hand or both hands without even looking. This facilitates further use of other Iaido techniques.

[Iaido • Freeform]
B-Rank Taijutsu Discipline
Prerequisite: [Acrobatics] concentration
Having grown accustomed to acrobatic maneuvers, Niku is able to perform any Iaido draw from inconceivable positions. No matter what position her body is in, she is capable of releasing attacks without any detriment to her aim or speed. In addition, rapid adjustments such as dodging or spinning has no effect on her aim.

[Iaido • Freestyle Draw]
B-Rank Taijutsu Discipline
Having practiced extensively at drawing from unconventional places, Niku has mastered the ability to perform an Iaido draw from anywhere on her person (assuming there is a sheath to draw from). This allows her much more variety in her draws than traditional Iaido.

[Iaido • Typhoon Draw]
S-Rank Taijutsu Maneuver
Prerequisite: 35 speed
Niku will torque the muscles in her arms to produce a slash so fast that a vacuum blade is hurtled in the direction of the original slash. This vacuum blade has 4/5th the Speed and Strength of the original slash, rounded down, and travels a number of meters equal to 4/5 of her Strength stat, rounded down.
[Shinden • Cleaving Strike]
C-Rank Taijutsu Maneuver
With Shinden's focus on brute strength, Niku will torque the muscles in her arm and aim to destroy her opponent's weapon. If the force strength of her strike is higher than the Endurance of the weapon that she's targeting, the weapon will be cleaved in two.

*[Shinden • Alligator Skin]
B-Rank Taijutsu Discipline
Shinden practitioners learn how to handle their large weapons so accurately that they wield them as proficiently as any normal warrior with a smaller weapon. This Discipline represents the practitioner’s capacity to seamlessly fight with their two-handed weapon of choice as if it were a one-handed weapon. This allows them to perform quicker, more complex movements, guards, and attacks with their weapon of choice without any penalty related to the size or weight of the weapon.

*[Shinden • Alligator Scales]
B-Rank Taijutsu Discipline
A Shinden practitioner learns to endure and deaden pain and resist shock. This Discipline represents the practitioner’s ability to not flinch or be staggered by attacks they receive of equal or lower Strength than their Strength stat. It also represents the toughened skin and bones the practitioner has developed throughout their training, lessening pain and preventing minor injuries that the practitioner would otherwise suffer during the course of combat or inflict on themselves using Shinden techniques.

*[Shinden • Titan's Resilience]
A Rank Taijutsu Discipline
Prerequisite(s): *[Shinden • Alligator Skin].
Understanding that victory often requires momentary sacrifices and the strongest of wills, the practitioner has learned how to ignore all types of pain. This Discipline represents the practitioner's immunity to any staggering or interruption of their movements, defenses, attacks, or techniques that would normally be caused by pain, however severe. This does not offer any protection against the actual damage caused by attacks that successfully land on the practitioner, only their ability to immediately push through the pain through force of will and carry out their own attacks and counterattacks.

*[Shinden • Hand of the Titan]
A-Rank Taijutsu Maneuver
An unusual technique within the Shinden style, this technique is meant to not slay an opponent, but to remove them from the battlefield instead. Torquing the muscles in their body, the practitioner will catch the opponent with a non-lethal thrust or swing, often striking the opponent with the flat of their blade if possible. Then, releasing the pent up force in their muscles into a violent spin, the practitioner rotates rapidly before launching the opponent up or away a great distance. Any opponent caught in this technique will be launched a number of meters equal to 20 x the practitioner's Strength stat in meters at a speed equal to the practitioner's Strength stat. If the practitioner uses this attack in a lethal manner, the maximum distance the opponent can be launched is equal to the practitioner's Strength stat. The opponent must have higher Endurance than the practitioner's Strength to resist the launching effect. The opponent can still potentially suffer injury from the strike itself and from any collision and fall damage they may suffer as they are flung through the air.

*[Shinden • Titan's Crushing Grip]
A-Rank Taijutsu Maneuver
Prerequisite(s): 30 Strength, 30 Speed.
Momentarily torquing every single muscle in their body, the practitioner generates an immense amount of force in their body. Then, after launching a preliminary attack, the pent up force is released, causing the practitioner to instantaneously launch a second attack at their maximum speed, essentially landing two attacks in the same time frame it would normally take to launch one. In order to defend against this attack, the opponent must have equal or higher Endurance than the practitioner's Strength. Otherwise, this double-attack will rend through the opponent's defenses, possibly even breaking weapons and armor as the attack cleaves the opponent or runs them through.
*[Toryu • Ambidexterity]
D-Rank Taijutsu Discipline
After practicing for a long amount of time with the concept of using both of their hands with equal skill, the user has developed a level of ambidexterity that allows them to utilize both hands equally and as effectively without any penalty. This extends to other methods of combat or simple everyday life as well.

*[Toryu • Cobblestone Skeleton]
D-Rank Taijutsu Discipline
A practitioner of Toryu is capable of attacking with every part of their body, even their heads. This Discipline represents the practitioner's capacity and experience with executing palm strikes, heel strikes, knee strikes, elbow strikes, and headbutts/skull bashes just as effectively as regular punches, kicks, and sword strikes. This Discipline allows the practitioner to consistently execute these kinds of attacks while minimizing or eliminating openings in their defenses or shock/damage they would experience while using these kinds of strikes.

[Toryu • Roll]
C-Ranked Taijutsu Maneuver
When approaching a target, Niku will leap to the side, rolling along her shoulders and upper back until her feet return to the earth. When they do, she will now be facing her opponent at a right angle from her initial approach. This allows Niku to grasp or clinch a target from a position they hadn't been prepared to defend against.

*[Toryu • Granite Epitaph]
B-Rank Taijutsu Discipline
Prerequisite(s): 25 Strength.
After much training with grappling, clinching, blocking, deflecting, and parrying weapons, the practitioner gains skin as sturdy as rock, allowing them even more avenues for defense and attack. This Discipline represent's the practitioner's body conditioning for toughening their skin all over their bodies, especially on their hands. This makes the practitioner's skin harder to cut or penetrate, and it allows the practitioner to perform normally self-destructive feats, such as blade catches, without needlessly harming themselves.

*[Toryu • Searching For Hope]
A-Rank Taijutsu Discipline
Prerequisite(s): *[Toryu • Granite Epitaph]
Extending additional uses to the body conditioning of the hands, Toryu practitioners are skilled in parrying and deflecting attacks with their bare hands. This Discipline represents the practitioner’s capacity to defend against weapon attacks with their hands whenever they wish to do so. This is executed by placing their palms against the flat of the blade or around a non-damaging section of the weapon and pushing or deflecting the weapon away. This Discipline is ineffective against Acrobatics weapon attacks of equal or higher rank than this technique.
*[Yoshin • Prey's Anatomy]
D-Rank Taijutsu Discipline
Detailed knowledge of the human body's vulnerabilities and weaknesses are fundamental to learning Yoshin. This Discipline represents the practitioner's knowledge of the precise location of all major organs, tendons, blood vessels, and nerve clusters on both their body and the opponent's body. This allows the practitioner to accurately target those areas even in the heat of combat.

*[Yoshin • Skinning the Corpse]
C-Rank Taijutsu Discipline
Prerequisite(s): *[Yoshin • Prey's Anatomy].
Exceptional Yoshin practitioners move beyond the basic knowledge of the body and delve more deeply into the study of the body. This Discipline represents the practitioner's knowledge of the precise location of all major and minor joints and tendons and all smaller nerve clusters on both their body and the opponent's body. This allows the practitioner to accurately target those areas even in the heat of combat.

*[Yoshin • Field Dressing]
B-Rank Taijutsu Discipline
Prerequisite(s): *[Yoshin • Skinning the Corpse].
The practitioner of Yoshin further enhances their knowledge of the human body. This Discipline represents the practitioner's knowledge of the precise location of all joints, tendons, and nerve points on both their body and the opponent's body. This allows the practitioner to accurately target those areas even in the heat of combat.

*[Yoshin • Great Serpent's Gaze]
A-Rank Taijutsu Discipline
Prerequisite(s): *[Yoshin • Field Dressing].
The practitioner of Yoshin has attained a knowledge of the human body that rivals even the world's finest doctors. This Discipline represents the practitioner's knowledge of the human anatomy in its entirety, including every single point of vulnerability, and they are able to instantly locate and target those areas both on their bodies and their opponents' bodies whenever they so wish. This allows the practitioner to accurately strike even the most minute of target areas in the heat of combat.

[Yoshin • Disappear]
A- Ranked Taijutsu Maneuver
Niku will take a moment to prepare herself before dashing full speed at an opponent. The strength of this technique comes from the extreme acceleration used in it, causing those without a Perception Technique equal to or greater the Niku’s speed to be unable to follow her movement at all. Niku will then make a powerful thrust aimed at a taget's vital areas.

Historical AccountsShow
Reports of bandits marauding small towns near the border of Tea Country and Fire Country eventually made their way to Konoha. They assigned a young chuunin the mission of stopping those bandits and Nyuuga Ushi made her way out to find them. They were making a straight line south down the border, so it was pretty easy for the intelligent chuunin to track them down.

She confronted the group of bandits, informing them of her rank and association with the ninja world. She hoped they would surrender, but they weren't that nice to her. She had no desire to hurt the bandits and approached them intending to use her nonlethal techniques to neutralize the threat. The first bandit rushed at her, swinging some sort of makeshift mace. She easily sidestepped the attack and hit him in the back of the head, effectively knocking him out. When she turned back to the other three, she was surprised by a small glass thing shattering at her feet. Before she knew it, a small green gas made its way to her nose and she inhaled its contents.

Feeling no effect, she approached the other three bandits, wanting to finish the confrontation quickly. As she moved, she realized how dizzy she felt as she stumbled to the ground. The bandits started to grin as they'd managed to subdue a kunoichi. The fortune they'd spent on that poison had been worth it. One of the bandits pulled his sword out, a wicked grin crossing his face as he approached Ushi. He raised the sword above his head, preparing to send its edge deep into the kunoichi. Before the blade reached her flesh, a samurai rushed over and unleashed his blade. His lightning draw sliced through the bandit's inferior sword.

The samurai quickly took care of the other bandits before checking on the young lady. After ensuring that the bandits weren't going to get away, the young samurai took the kunoichi to a doctor. The doctor was unfamiliar with the poison and said time was the only cure he had at his disposal. The young samurai stayed by her bedside and helped her recuperate. The two warriors fell in love and the samurai agreed to go to Konoha so that they could be together. Touched by his willing to uproot his entire life, the two were married before she returned to the village. Once there, the kunoichi requested that they allow her husband to move to the village.

Nearly fifty years ago, a samurai and his wife moved to Konohagakure no Sato. He was scrutinized at first, but he joined a group that taught their samurai skills to any that wanted to learn. Many shinobi came to train under their tutelage, as well as some villagers. They weren't sanctioned by the village, but their willingness to teach shinobi went a log says to proving their loyalty. A few years later, the samurai's wife had a child. As was customary, the samurai trained his child to be a samurai as well.

The young man abhorred the sword and joined the shinobi academy at a young age. While the samurai was displeased, he was also glad to see his son making his own path. Once the boy became a chuunin, he found a nice young lady and they married. Just before his twentieth birthday, the young shinobi went out on a mission and died in the line of duty. Unbeknownst to him, his young bride was pregnant with his child. This is the history of Inken Nikuya's parentage.

Without her father around, her grandfather, now retired and bored, began training Niku to become a samurai. Niku's mother told her stories of her father and his adventures in the shinobi world. Wanting to honor both her grandfather and father, she decided to train her hardest on her grandfather's teachings and attend the ninja academy. While she did learn a fair amount of ninja skills in the academy, she spent most of her spare time on Iaido, her grandfather's samurai style. However, she also studied under some of her grandfathers' fellow sword teachers, picking up some things from other styles.

After becoming a genin, she was placed on a few different teams but none really stuck together too well. She also began training with a masterful sensei by the name of Tenzin. Under his tutelage, Niku began to expand her doton and ninjutsu skills considerably, eventually delving into the usage of fuuinjutsu. Her training with her grandfather persisted and she grew into an incredibly competent samurai. These skills allowed Niku to pass her chuunin exam with fellow participant Yozei, who also happens to be the Hokage's son. The two later teamed up with a few other chuunin to create the Vanguard, a group of up-and-coming shinobi within Konoha.

Despite her progress within the ranks of shinobi, Niku continues to train hard and develop her skills further.

General Information
Type: Pet
Gender: Female
Age: 9 months
  • Face/head: Akisu's face is covered in a mixture of light orange, black, and white fur. Her over sized ears are white, as well as her cheeks and chin. Her forehead has a spattering of orange and black while the tips of her ears have a noticeable black tuft atop each. Her cheeks are also topped with black whiskers.
  • Body: Her body is mostly covered in a light orange fur which is made of fairly short hair. Her shoulders measure in a couple inches under a foot from the ground and she is about 2 feet long from nose to to the tip of her tail. Her tail is short, for a cat, only about 6 inches long.
  • Notable Features:The most notable feature of all caracals is the tufts of black hair which extend past the top of the ears; Akisu is no different with about 3 inches of black atop each ear.
  • General: Akisu is a serious, no nonsense kitty cat. No matter what sort of tomfoolery is attempted, she never takes the bait, preferring a cat nap over playing or goofing off. She also seems to prefer men to women and has shown a bit of a jealous streak when people she likes don't show her enough attention.
  • Hopes/Dreams: Perform her duties to the best of her ability.
  • Fears: Monkeys, cucumbers, being replaced
  • Combat Mentality: This young cat, like the natural hunter that it is, prefers to stay in the shadows until its prey is close and then pounce to deal a deadly blow. She often will stay hidden until she believes she can make a difference in the battle.
Battle Information Rank: D rank
  • Ninjutsu: 3
  • Taijutsu: 3

The small pack houses 45 senbon needles.
Ability and Concentrations
NinjutsuDoton Affinity
A character with this concentration is able to utilize Doton, and can make and use any custom or archived jutsu that require the doton affinity. Doton has a passive enduring effect.
The fundamental skill of [Stealth] describes the user’s proficiency in remaining silent, unseen and unnoticed as they go about tasks. This facilitates their use of related Taijutsu.
Genjutsu[Place them here]

*[Basic Jutsu • Act of Tree Climbing]
D-Ranked Ninjutsu
By focusing chakra into his/her feet, the user is able to walk up trees and other vertical surfaces in a similar fashion to walking along the ground. This chakra amount must be precise, and although all shinobi learn this technique, the user's control stat will determine how well this jutsu can be executed. Users with low control 2 or lower will often fall during the use of this technique, while users with average control 3 or higher will be able to use this technique functionally. It lasts for a number of posts equal to the user's stamina stat times 3.

*[Ninjutsu • Hidden Needles]
D-Ranked Ninjutsu
After performing the correct hand seals the user will focus chakra into their mouths and into up to five senbon within 3 feet of their position. The senbon will be summoned from their persons or nearby into the user's mouth, where they will be spit out aided by chakra at a speed of 6 and strength of 4. The senbon can be shot up to 7 meters away.

*Doton • Wall
D-Rank Ninjutsu
After performing the correct hand seals the user will form a solid stone wall up to 5 meters away from them at a speed of 6. The wall has a strength of 4 and is 3x3x1 meters large.
Hunter's Awareness
D-Rank Taijutsu Discipline
Prerequisite: [Stealth]
Akisu is naturally very aware of her body and her surroundings. Akisu naturally adjusts her path and body's location to avoid things that she is unfamiliar with or things that are likely to be noisy. This allows her to move around near silently. This holds true for most natural settings, like forests, grasslands, and the like, including climbing, running and walking. This discipline also lends itself to leaping, though it isn't nearly as surefire as other means of movement.

Hunter's Vision
D-Rank Taijutsu Discipline
Akisu's visual acuity is topnotch. Her eyes are so adept at perceiving motion, she is able to time leaps into the air to catch prey as it flies by. Being a nocturnal hunter, Akisu is also able to find her way at night with just the moon's light.
Place Genjutsu in here

HistoryAkisu was born in Konoha's Ninja Pet Department, a special group designed to breed, train, and take care of animals in order for them to become companions of Konoha's shinobi. Akisu had been trained in this manner, overcoming her desire to be solitary as well as teaching her how to work with shinobi and what to expect when jutsu are launched from her own chakra pool. Her training went well and she's been deemed ready to be assigned to someone officially. Of course, more training will be necessary so that Akisu and her new owner will be able to work with each other in life or death situations. Only time will tell if the two will be able to forge a true bond.
