With that going up in the air, Hibari released his water jutsu and swung his hand forwards as the beast leapt at him. As he did this he released a blade of wind that was aimed to cut straight through the beast, cleaving it in two, between it's eyes all the way down to it's tail, each half falling back down into the ocean to either side of Hibari. Though as he did this, he began to fall, just as he was about to reach the ocean, in a puff of smoke he was gone back to the land of water as animal path summoned him backAs Tsuna rested he got a message from Hibari through their link. He could see the beast chasing Hibari. He knew the plan, he just had to get his Animal path ready.

Explore an infected location.
Obtain a sample of the sea of life.
I would awaken to a rising piquant smell engulfing my senses, boding me to open my eyes to the cockcrows of the day. The rays of light shone down upon the vast ocean, striking the surface, but just barely going deeper. The heavily contaminated waters would flow calmly beneath the boat, gently rocking it in an almost constant pace. While the ocean did look beautiful and somewhat scenic in an artistic sense, it was everything but that. Hokubu had served as the main ground for the battle with a proclaimed goddess, causing it's rapid metamorphosis into a petri dish of cataclysmic levels. Or so they say. From what I can see, this ocean is just Tia-whatever's bathroom. She took a massive piss and called it the sea of life. While I am all for asserting dominance like dogs, it's a step too far to have your piss contain some std that infects anyone! Or well, at least that's my theory. Anyways, whatever this ocean contained, it was something unpleasant, something that had taken effect on me by some means. The most likely case was during the battle with the proclaimed goddess, perhaps a side effect?
The virus or disease that had infected me and others seemed to be quite potent, as it gnawed at my chakra pool, reducing it by a significant amount. Not only that, but I feel weaker overall, as if my very own life essence had been weakened. The sensation was something I did not like, but for the time being I had to muscle through it.
My mission was one that could prove to be important, as the fates of countless others could be affected by it. It was an interesting prospect, yet all the while still a bother. Nevertheless, it was time to begin. I would ditch my boat and ride atop a newly spawned Hawk. The flight path would help cover a larger portion much more efficiently, but for what seemed to be like an hour, the ocean was rather uneventful. Nothing of particular interest had popped up yet, perhaps it was a calmer area. I progress further, picking up the pace, soaring high in the sky away from the surface level. It would appear that the landmark lacked any of it's normal traits, and who could question it? This place was simply no place for any commoner. My exploration of the ocean would persist, as I move from one area to the other, trying to gauge any sort of differences if any. The differences on the surface level were almost non-existent, with the life above being describable the same. Or at least normal life. While there were no signs of regular people, the ocean was littered with beasts of various sizes and shapes. It seemed that the mutation that the fake goddess had caused have had unique repercussions on the animal life. From what it appeared, there was a potential that Hokubu's very own food chain had been broken.
(Ninpo: Sōzō no Karada) | Ninja Art: Body of CreationType: Supplementary/Defensive
Chakra cost: N/A (-5 per turn)
Description: Using the ability to manipulate Ink, the user will gain the ability to place the ink on their bodies for the sake of future battles. Similar to getting a tattoo, the ink will rest on the user's skin in a variety of shapes and forms, and can often times be confused with Fūinjutsu seals. The ink "tattoos" have a variety of uses and properties, namely the ability to create ink animals directly from the user's body without the need for a scroll, because in essence the user would have turned his body into a living canvas. By channeling chakra into the ink the user can have the tattoos move about on their bodies in order to ensure the perfect orientation. Ninjutsu and Ink manipulation techniques that would require pre-prepared scrolls can be done with Sōzō no Karada by either the user drawing the needed shapes on their body or having the image needed already drawn on before the match. How this works is by first drawing the required shape/kanji onto their body and then coursing chakra through the ink to summon the preferred effect. Due to the ability to move the ink while it is on the skin, a new shape can be created instantly with chakra control and as such the user would only need to drawn a single shape once and then have it re-purposed for anything else. As mentioned before, the main ability of this technique is to allow the user to bring forth small, ink made creatures for the sake of carrying messages, scouting, or general amusement. Meaning, even if they were used to attack they would count as free form techniques with no rank or damage value at all. The creatures able to be created are listed below:
Hawk (鷹, Taka) Can be ridden for reconnaissance or high-speed travel. Smaller variants can be used to carry explosive tags or be used to deliver messages.
Rat (鼠, Nezumi) Can swarm across an area to search for a target much faster than the user would be able to on their own. Being so small, the rats are inconspicuous, also making them suitable for covert message delivery.
Snake (蛇, Hebi) Can be used as ropes to restrain someone. With the ability to soundlessly enter through even the smallest crevice, they can also be used for covert ops.
Tomoe Lion (巴獅子, Tomoe Shishi) Used for travelling on ground, these lions appear vicious on the outside but are actually harmless. If needed they can be used to hold down a target with their powerful jaws.
Fish (魚, Sakana) Made of special, water resistant ink, the fishes are able to travel through bodies of water to deliver messages or very small objects in their mouths.
Note: Must be stated in the user's biography or beginning of the battle.
Note: Up to 3 tattoos can be made in one go.
Note: The technique can be used five times per event, with each contract lasting two turns.(In the case four are made at a single go) Alternatively, the user can create a less amount of constructs and have the additional turns added to the created construct. For example releasing two creations that would last four turns each. Due to the technique lacking any actual damage potential, this extension serves for more story oriented purposes.
The current state of the ocean, in addition to my very own, essentially bounded me to lower the Hawk to obtain a sample. The Hawk would decent in an area that appeared to be free from beasts, at least for the moment. I had to obtain a sample of the sea of life, studying it would no doubt yield results on some front. But could I touch the sea itself? It was a rather risky and stupid thing to do all things considered. As such, I'd bring forth three vials from my pouch. I would utilise my shadow to form into tendrils that wrap around the vial, securing the vials before directing them towards the ocean, scooping up three quick samples. The hawk would have dived, whooshing by the top of the ocean. The tendrils would be placed in angle that accounted for the Hawk's movement and in a manner that allowed the swift placement of the lids of the vial, ensuring the proper storage of the samples.I would proceed to clean the outside of the vials, utilising sterilisers and gloves, making sure that no contact with the sea of life occurs. I would then store the vials within my pouch and relinquish manipulation of my shadow.
(Kage: Kurechin) - Shadow Arts: CretinType: Supplementary
Range: Short - Long
Description: Used for the purpose of story telling, Cretin allows the user to manipulate his shadow in all of its forms in order to convey a story to an audience. The story can range from a simple manipulation that covers a few centimeters to a grand, up to scale, extravagant showing. The user's imagination is the only limit. The technique can last 5 turns due to it being inherently harmless and easy to use. It costs 5 chakra points per turn to sustain, with a turn interval required between uses.
I would then take my leave, opting not to investigate in the ocean life, at least not for the moment.
As I was about to leave the ocean, I would be greeted by a familiar person. I did not know the man personally, but there were some general ideas surrounding him. Yo, I would reply, waving a greeting towards the man, what's up, erm Menma? I would say with a slight scratch of the back of my head.coming from: here
Arriving at over the ocean. Hei flies over head scouting the landmark. Taking note of the surroundings Hei will notice a man from his fight against Tiamat. Flying down to greet him, Hei stops mid ranged away interrupting his travel.
"Yo, I have some questions for you.."
Hearing himself be mistaken for Menma will cause Hei to laugh. Their personalities complete opposites.As I was about to leave the ocean, I would be greeted by a familiar person.

Oh, sorry, I'm quite terrible with names. I would reply. Yup, I am Vayne. So, what did you want to ask me?Hearing himself be mistaken for Menma will cause Hei to laugh. Their personalities complete opposites.
"Neh, I'm not Menma. My name is Hei. I believe we fought along each other briefly against Tiamat. Your name is Vayne right?"
