Genji after erasing the young woman's exsistence would move onto the next landmark, it would seem Rocky had joined the fray and Kuvira was still in the midst of her fight. Even Jesse had been attacked but had managed to escape, Genji would assume he was heading back to the village and follow his lead. He would return but for now he would have to regroup, and inform the rest of the villagers of the skirmish.

Jesse watched carefully at the events that transpired, his crimson eyes tracking everything. All the civillians ran from the battles as the Kage himself had arrived and began battle. As if anyone would stick around to see a monster like that do battle. However, there was a person that had arrived to the scene, a woman standing roughly 15 meters away.

"Hey, You shouldn't be out he-"

McCree's sentence would stop as he noticed the woman's chakra began to travel into the ground. It was clear that she was attacking.

Jesse would immediately preform a handseal, followed by a clap while filling his lungs with fire chakra. a large wall of flames would be exerted from his mouth, infused with fire snakes to increase the overall damage. This particular attack would be extremely wide horizontally but most importantly vertical as well. The ground itself would be torn apart by such a great force as well as the coral beneath.


(Katon: Gōka Mekkyaku) - Fire release: Great Fire Majestic Annihilation
Type: Offensive
Rank: S
Range: Short-Long
Chakra: 40
Damage: 80 (80+20=100)
Description: A technique where the user makes the horse hand seal and then kneads chakra inside his body which is then converted into fire and expelled from the mouth as a massive wall of intense flames, which covers an expansive range in both vertical and horizontal dimensions, making it extremely difficult to avoid. However, due to its massive width and height, the technique is not one of the fastest seen so far.

(Katon: Moeru hebi no kiba) - Fire Release: Burning Snake Fang

Type:Offensive/Defensive/Supplementary
Rank: S
Range: Short-Long
Chakra: 40
Damage: 80 (+20)
Description: This unique fire technique can be performed in two ways, as a single stand alone technique which requires two handseals, dragon and tiger followed by the clapping of the hands. Using it in this form allows the user to manifest a fiery portal similar to the earth release mud drop. However instead of mud forming in this portal a large torrent of fire shaped as snakes will pour out surrounding a target or targets and wrapping around them. The fire while not sentient can be controlled by hand gestures making it very difficult to avoid. The snakes are solid in nature much like the dragon head fireballs making their binding ability quite impressive preventing an enemy wrapped in them from moving freely. The second method of using this technique functions as more of a boosting enhancement performed by clapping the hands. This method of use is performed as a follow up to another fire or wind technique and will cause the snakes to burst forth from the user merging with the preexisting technique adding to the overall power of the former technique by adding additional chakra to the technique and a degree of versatility to the technique by making it function in a solid way. Essentially the previous technique will experience a change in power and ability by becoming the flaming snakes. This usage is considered as an active boost and follows the rules and restrictions of such.

Note: May be used two times per battle overall.
Note: If combined with a wind technique in it's second form it will be considered a fire/wind combo. Combined with a fire technique just creates a stronger fire.
Note: No fire jutsu above A rank in the following turn.
Note: The portal is made in the sky like the mud drop technique atleast 10m above the opponent
Note: May only be taught by Jhin

Jesse would not stop just here. Sensing this opponent was just a little too strong, he figured he would need to gather backup. Just as the flames were completely spit, Jesse would merge with the ground and began to travel backwards in order to escape. The opponent would not be able to see this action as the previous fireball would blind them both from each others actions.


(Hiru Banshō: Bōka no Jutsu) - Leech All Creation: Attack Prevention Technique
Rank: B
Type: Supplementary
Range: Short-Long
Chakra cost: 20 (-5 per turn)
Damage points: N/A
Description: Using this jutsu, the user can merge with another passive object and take on its properties to avoid any damage. While merged, the user is virtually undetected unless the enemy has a doujutsu. Even chakra sensors won't be able to pinpoint the users position. The limitation of the technique is that to use a technique and mold chakra, the user must fully unmerge although doing so doesn't produce any sound and the user can only be sensed once fully unmerged. The user is still aware of the world outside the object and can travel inside it at his normal running speed. The technique was used so far by 3 ninjas (Yamato, Orochimaru and Uchiha Madara) but as an advanced ninjutsu, it can be used by any skilled enough ninja.
Note: the user must be Sannin Rank and above
Note: Orochimaru and Yamato can use it 5 times per battle, Uchiha Madara can use it 3 times, other ninjas can use it twice.
Note: Cannot merge into mediums which aren't tangible


Escaping battle and leaving the landmark!​
Mala gets directly hit by the attack, and is burned across her body but is still very much alive. She'd sit there ane rub her head as Isobu scolded her.

"Dumb ass! Are you drunk again?! Why didn't you defend that, it was straight forward..."

"Eh..."

-Hakumen Spawns Waiting for somebody-
https://animebase.me/threads/tairadachi-123.756136/#post-21892157

Raiden immediately saw a man just standing there, seemingly lost. Raiden sensed his chakra levels to be quite similar to the man he was tracking that came this way. This new comer would do for now. Raiden would silently approach and stop 3meters behind the man as he stooped down to remain in his blind spot. He would inhale a large amount of air as he followed up by releasing his Wujin. Without moving a single finger, Raiden would release a ferocious roar that sent a devastating 90 degree sound blast directly behind the man's head while still in his blind spot. This critical hit would surely do the job of finishing him. Raiden would take out a kunai and attach a special sealing tag to it. Throwing it at the man to seal off his abilities for now.

Ototon: Ōkibo na Hibiki Rendan no Jutsu) - Sound Release: Massive Echo Assault Skill
Rank: S
Type: Offensive
Range: Short-Long
Chakra Cost: 40
Damage Points: 80
Description: This is a much greater and skilled version of the (Ototon: Hibiki Rendan no Jutsu) - Sound Release: Echo Assault Skill technique in which the user gathers his sound chakra into his throat as he inhales afterwards exhaling as he screams, yells or roars. The resulting effect is a massive shockwave of low frequency, high amplitude destructive sound that levels anything in its path. The biggest different is that the user can control the area of affect of the technique, depending on the range he targets and the angle of the sound waves his sound waves take. 180º to 90º, the technique is Short Ranged. 90º to 45º, the technique is Mid-Range and from 5º to 45º the technique is Long Ranged. If used within a water source it receives +20 damage.
Note: Usable once every 3 turns

Fūin Fuda ) – Sealing Tag
Rank: B-Rank
Type: Supplementary
Range: Short
Chakra cost: 20
Damage points: N/A
Description: A basic sealing technique where the user places one or more tags either directly on a target or on a technique which is restraining it. As its placed, a sealing formula spreads around the technique or the target, sealing it. This technique has been seen used with Sand ninjutsu, Earth, Water, Wood, Cloth Ninjutsu, etc but basically any technique in which you can apply the tags can be used. In the case of expert ninjas, the tags might even be incorporated into the restraining technique, with no need to actually manually place the tag or tags. Additionally, less experienced ninjas can find that throwing one or more kunais with the sealing tags attached at the technique which will trigger the same effect when the kunais stick on the technique. This prevents the target from moving, molding chakra or even being summoned.
Note: The seal takes a while to form, so most opponents can either counter the restraining technique (thus preventing the sealing formula of taking effect) or rip off the tags from themselves negating its effects entirely. If the target, however, fails to counter the restraining technique or is counter to it fails or if he doesn't remove the tags in his next move, then the seal will fully be placed and the target unable to release himself.
Note: This technique is specially designed to be used on summons and Edo Tensei Summons but will work on any opponent except Jinchurikiis.

Ight. I'll be taking this TL win. z.z

After seeing the man getting hit and sealed up successfully, Raiden approached him and smiled. He would press his fingers against his body to essentially seal off his abilities further more for safety purposes. Then perform a handseal to erect a barrier covering their short range. Raiden and the prey were now hidden from most if not all outsiders. Raiden would grip the man by his hair after performing a handseal to sprout wings on his back. He immediately took off, heading off to a new location.

Fuuinjutsu: Kage en bun'ya) - Sealing Arts: Realm of Shadows
Type: Supplementary | Defensive
Rank: B
Range: Short - Mid
Chakra: 20 (-5 per turn)
Damage: N/A
Description: Realm of Shadows is a barrier type fuuinjutsu made soley for supp/def usage. With a single hand seal the barrier can be erected easily. One of it's main purpose was to be used when retreating from wars or conflicts. This was used and cast around the user and his/her allies, to avoid enemies. Another use is so that the user may hide while meditating or simply heal without being interupted or detected. The concept of this technique is similar in usage to the canon ninjutsu; Meisaigakure no Jutsu & Muon Satsujin Jutsu. What makes it different is the fact that instead of applying it to the user's body soley, the user may have the barrier erect around short range to hide his/her allies (the barrier option to fit soley around the user's body like an armor is also an option). When within the barrier, the user's scent is erased to outsiders, all sounds within the barrier are mute to outsiders and the barrier reflects light off it to match the surrounding area so that all within it (including the barrier itself) is basically invisible to the naked eye. The barrier moves along with the user as the center point at all times as long as it is erected. Allies within the intangible barrier may exit as they please but can't enter. This is due to the barrier being made out of a special 'one-way' property. Meaning whatever exit may not return. With this same logic the user is capable of seeing through the barrier perfectly unlike those on the other end of the barrier (think of being within a tinted vehicle or behind a one way glass wall/door). The only exception of something exiting that may return is if it doesn't fully exit. Ex: The user extending his arm outside to retrieve something. He may pull in back his arm since his other half is still within the confines of the sphere shape barrier. This technique may only be used x4 with a turn cool down.

Notes:
-May only be used 4 times per battle.
-Cannot use Fuuinjutsu above A rank within the next turn.
-Requires Advanced Fuuinjutsu or an Advanced Uzumaki biography
-May only be taught by Venom

(Neidan: Taij Dao ) Internal Alchemey: Way of the Supreme
Type: Supplementary/Offensive/Defensive
Rank: D - Forbidden (A)
Range: Short - Long
Chakra Cost: 10 - 60
Damage:
Description: Taiji Dao is the sister technique to Wuji Dao and its polar opposite. Where the latter returns existence to nothigness, Taiji Dao brings existence from nothingness. Fundamentally, the user creates physical, vital, and/or spiritual entities through the use of their Dantian. The user is also capable of returning enties they've erased with Wuji Dao back into existence in the condition they were erased. The constructs and creations that a user can conjure are limited to their imagination. These constructs, if appropriate, are capable of using Neidan techniques that coincide with the dantian used to create them (e.g physical constructs can use techniques with the lower dantian) ( the entities can, not constructs ). Like other techniques that possess the Chakra of the Dragon, the user is capable of keeping track of anything created with this technique via their Taijin ability. The basic application of this technique sees the use of one of the three dantian to create an entity. However, advanced users are capable of combining two or all three dantian to create entities with qualities of multiple dantian. Combining all three of the dantian is the equivalent to creating a sentient familiar. This technique is learned at genin rank and requires 5 hand signs for external uses. Each rank reduces the requirements for hand signs by 2. The upper echleon (Dragon, Head, Master) may use this technique B-rank and below without hand signs.

Lower Dantian: This application sees the creation of physical entities from Wuji (Nothingness). Entities created with this dantian may possess properties of any material state of matter (solids and liquids primarily) and can be created internal or external of the Hayabusa. Hayabusa are also capable of replacing or adding body parts to themselves (or others through direct contact A-rank usage) such as lost or additional limbs, appendages, or wings. Those with medical knowledge can even replace vital organs, tissues, and cells. The limitations of this technique are that: entities created must be 5 meters away from adversaries unless the user is within close range. Entities such as poisons, diseases, or composites of actual elemental natures cannot be created. Familiars created with this dantian alone are non-sentient. All created constructs possess a black reptilian scale like aesthetic pattern, representing Sokotsu.

Middle Dantian: This application sees the creation of vital/etheral entities from Wuji. Entities created with this dantian possess plasma like forms similar to lightning and fire and appear as translucent black energy. The versatility of this application is less than the lower dantian's application as it possesses no such maluable ability to be formed into multiple different states of matter. Entities created with this application is incredibly high energy giving them the capability to burn on touch or even ignite objects and beings within close proximity (ignition at A-rank and above must be within 2 meters of the entity). The user is immune to their own energy's burning effects. Like the previous application, familiars created with this dantian alone are non-sentient. Entities cannot be created within 5 meters of adversaries unless close range is already established between the user and opponent(s).

Upper Dantian: This application sees the creation of spiritual entities from Wuji. This application allows the user to create a seperate sentience within themselves, or others. This spiritual creation may appear however the user deems fit as it is only a mental representation of the consciousness. Unless created within the consciousness of another, these spiritual beings are only concievable, and communicable to the Hayabusa who created it. Unlike the previous two applications, the user may create this spiritual sentience within another as long as they are within appropriate range. However, their only function is to prevent opponents from using mental/spiritual techniques of certain levels (B-rank prevents enemies from using S-rank and above spiritual/mental techniques. Every rank above that decreases the enemy's use by 1-rank). If created inside the user, the entity acts as a partner capable of using upper dantian techniques without the need for the user's input and is unaffected by spiritual/mental techniques directed at the user. Likewise it can block spiritual techniques on the user's behalf as well (A-rank and below starting at B-rank creations and increasing by 1 rank for every rank above B). This application requires one to be chunin rank and is B-rank at minimum. B and A-rank uses require the user to be within mid-range to use against targets. S-rank requires short range and Forbidden rank requires direct physical contact.

Multi-Dantian: This sees the application of more than one of the dantian being used in one specific use. There are only 3 combinations that may arise from this; lower+upper, middle+upper, and all three combined. The former two applications are a minimum of A-rank. Creating an entity with all 3 dantian is S-rank at minimum and acts as an entirely independent existence.

Note: Genin may use this technique up to C-rank every two turns. Chunin may use this every other turn up to B-rank. Jounin may use this technique up to S-rank (A-rank for upper dantian), however S-rank usage requires a one turn cool down before re-use. Jounin are also capable of using Multi-Dantian.
Note: Dragon/Head Ninja/Master Ninja may use this technique up to Forbidden Rank but only Masters can use Forbidden Rank multi-dantian.
Note: Forbidden usage of any kind can only be used twice per battle and renders the user incapable of using any Neidan technique for two turns after use.
Note: All applications and familiars may be maintained with additional chakra per turn B-rank and below -5 chakra, A to S -10, -15 for Forbidden.
Note: Familiars consisting of multiple dantian last 4 turns if they are A-rank and 3 S-rank and above. However, only one multi-dantian familiar may exist at any given time from the user.

Iryo Fuuinjutsu: Chakura Fuuin no Jutsu) Medical Sealing Arts: Chakra Sealing Technique
Type: Supplementary
Rank: S-Rank
Range: Short
Chakra: 70
Damage: N/A
Description:
The medical ninja will focus chakra to the tip of his five fingers. Upon doing so, yellow chakra "flames" surround each finger tip, displaying 5 different kanji (Mountain, Lake, Water, Thunder and Earth). Pressing the fingers on the target will burn the kanji onto him, creating a circular seal with a tajitu surrounded by various kanji. As this seal is burned into the target, it immediately seals off 50% of his current chakra reserves and disables the use of skills of any nature above B-Rank. The seal can be released by a sealing master by using the same procedure but instead of the original kanji, burning a different set (Water, Thunder, Earth, Heaven and Fire).
Note: to release or use, requires medical sealing mastery

Powering the Weapon Core, Part I (The Candidates, 2)
Note: This special mission, considered part 2 of the Candidates mission line, can only be undertaken by those who have completed The Candidates (Genji, of the Hayabusa), or those who have obtained their mysterious Weapon Core. This can be completed by anyone who has completed The Mysterious Weapon Core (Candidates 1.5), regardless if they are in a village or not.

Unlike the Candidates, posted for all throughout the world as a bounty, a new objective has been posted for all on the Ninja World Noticeboard. But, just like the Candidates, this missive has been posted with the same signature of the mystery man, “???.” It reads:

“What you hold is nothing less than a gift from Us. But it is powerless. A husk of something once so bright and dark. It must be powered. In order to do this, you must undertake Our arduous task. Seek out the blood of the guilty, one hundred offerings should suffice. Then purify its essence in the tears of an innocent soul, unharmed by you."

Powering the Weapon Core is considered Part 2 of the Candidates questline, and is itself divided into other steps, with this being Part I. This is considered an S-Rank Mission, completed entirely in a PvE setting, essentially as a regular mission and done to the quality that warrants an S-Rank mission. The above text is slightly riddle-like, requiring you to decipher its meaning. Although, unlike the Mysterious Weapon Core (Candidates 1.5), this riddle is far less rigid in its correct interpretation.

At this point, only Genji of the Hayabusa has a Weapon Core. This Weapon Core is obtained when it mysteriously appears on his person. Starting with the Weapon Core is an advantaged conferred on Genji because he completed The Candidates 1, which allows for him to skip the riddles entirely and advance with the questline. Because of this, when/if Genji should complete this mission – he will receive 50% additional Kumi on top of its base reward (to compensate for not being able to attempt Candidates 1.5). As for the others who did not complete Candidates 1; when you complete Candidates 1.5, you will be allowed to undertake this special S-Rank mission. The reward for completing this mission is 2,000 Kumi (3,000 Kumi for Jay, who completed Candidates 1).

At this point of the quest, your Weapon Core that you obtain from Candidates 1 or 1.5 cannot be stolen from you, for the time being. It will be yours to safely develop for the time being, until the next special mission dictates that the item can be taken from you.

Powering the Weapon Core, Part II will be revealed once a certain number of people completing Part I.
Once Mugetsu and Yoru lifted their eyes from the instructions that the mysterious man had left, they would notice a very strange sight - the entire marketplace was shrouded in black smoke. From the smoke a figure would manifest, towering at 10 feet in height. He was cloaked in ornate red robes. Yet his presence seemed undetected by the commoners and rabble, as if he didn't exist in their plane of perception. "Mugetsu, you are named the Ninth Champion of the Sunlit Forge. What you hold there is Our gift to you. It is an empty husk of an ancient weapon core, predating even that Sage. Power the core if you seek more answers to the mysteries We hold." And just like that the man would vanish. The black smoke cleared from the marketplace and the commoners continued with their daily activities as if nothing had happened.
Completed Candidates 1.5. Initiating Quest: Candidates II




A power predating that of the Sage? I've never heard of anyone who could claim such. Yoru pondered.
Me?!? Mugetsu exclaimed.
Right
I will send you back to the nothing I pulled you out of
Yoru rolls his eyes, Regardless, let's look at this over here "Seek out the blood of the guilty, one hundred offerings should suffice. Then purify its essence in the tears of an innocent soul, unharmed by you." It says. Any ideas?
I might have an idea
Yoru flies Mugetsu away.

Mugetsu stares at the structure once again. A perfect triangle. On second thought, it really did look sacred. Mugetsu began to walk up to the Monastery again. A person walks out as Mugetsu approached the entrance. Mugetsu would stop and stare at the person. His appearance was clearly that of a monk yet his chakra would tell a story. Mugetsu would sense lethality from it uncharacteristic of a monk, but there was also tranquility. Mugetsu did not know how to feel about that, so he asked.

Do you have a name?!?

The monk would look down as if disappointed by the question. Mugetsu would wonder if there was a point trying to speak to someone likely to be mute. Chains would emerge from the ground and shackle Mugetsu's arm and legs. Four Samurai would subsequently erupt from the ground surrounding Mugetsu with aimed at him. The samurai would begin chanting .

You stole from us. The monk finally spoke
That's not a name. Mugetsu spoke back

An adolescent girl peeked from the door. Subjected to his curiosity, Mugetsu tilted his head to peek at the girl. Surprised the girl hid behind the monk, in response to which Mugetsu tilted his body to get a better view. A Samurai would pull the chain making Mugetsu stand straight again.

I asked you a question.
Actually, you did not.
Why did you steal from us?
I asked a question first.
..... I've abandoned my name.
What do people call you?
I'm referred by my rank, Kenin. Why did you steal from us?
I was asked to
By whom?
Some figure in the smoke. In fairness, I hadn't met him until after I stole this.

Mugetsu pulls on to the chain links and breaks them apart, shocking the observers. He felt somewhat weaker. Figured the chanting was a disabling Sound Ninjutsu. Samurai with Ninjutsu? He wondered. The samurai began to stop chanting as that happened, which reassured Mugetsu that he was spot on. By now it was clear his hosts were not from this monastery. Guess the monastery still fell under some Shogun's jurisdiction. He thought. Regardless, he needed answers he figured some wisecrack in the monastery would know. How was he gonna make a mute person talk? Yoru, who was telepathically linked to Mugetsu's thought process, wondered. So Mugetsu pulled out the artifact from his pouch (Yoru).

He wanted me to activate this.
With the blood of your enemies.
Not quite but you were close. How do you know this?
It's an old legend. The Monks chakra would spike as he answered. Mugetsu knew he lied.
Tell me about this legend?
Only a scholar from the monastery could tell you. But they took an oath of silence. Just like that, the lies intensified.
How does a group of Ninja monks join the ranks of Samurai?
The Monk raised his eyebrow. They call us . Ninja Monks learn to fight yet choose to waste their potential. Some of us believe in holier causes.
Hah! Mugetsu teared up.
I could assist you.
Now we're talking.
South from here, there is a land called Tazuma. The land is mired with conflict, that has ruined the lives many. One of the rivaling clans has hired a company of bandits who have begun attacking depots.
So the Shogun cant collect his rice tax? Kenin san can't get his
Mind your insolence. You seem like a capable man. Help the shogunate pacify the region and I could have your crimes forgiven.
What do I care about forgiveness?
Regardless. It may be relevant to your little quest.
You want me to kill? Be your executioner?
I said no such thing.
Mugetsu smirked. Fine! On one condition.
Speak
That girl looks important. Mugetsu points at the girl behind the Monk. I assume she's related to this snafu. I'll take her. She can be my insura.... uh guide.
The monk smirked. Very well.

Continuing Mission from: https://animebase.me/threads/tetsukai-125.756138/#post-21912670

Mugetsu leads the way through the hills, with Yoru at his rear in the shape of a black horse giving the girl a ride. Mugetsu looks towards his right and as the fog clears, two men are seen with a carriage loading dead bodies.
Are they scavengers?
Most likely.
The road ahead is littered with bodies as well. Some of them in Samurai armor. Mugetsu looks back at the girl.
These bodies don't make you uncomfortable?
Why would they? They're dead
She got more balls than you did as a kid.
I will sen-
I will send you back to the void I pulled you out from
...........
heh.
Well look at that, she laughs.
.........
At least tell me your name?
...
Oh don't tell me you're like that monk. Who is he to you anyway?
Who are you--

Before the girl finishes her sentences, Yoru's equine face is seen in shock looking behind Mugetsu. An arrow flies past Mugetsu's head in a downward trajectory. Mugetsu stares at the arrow fly past him, on the tail end there is a bomb stringed together.
Mugetsu's eyes flared up as he notices the trajectory of the arrow, aimed directly at the girl. Yoru is there, she's safe. But who could aiming at her?. He thought.
Yoru who had a better reaction window than Mugetsu had managed to change forms and cover the girl's body. Mugetsu looks back and up where the arrow could've come from given the trajectory, He sees no one. Then it means it must've come from a distance in an arc.

Are you okay? Mugetsu speaks without specifying who he spoke to, while still scouting for the attacker.
Ugh. I've just lost some mass.
It looks like the arrow came from a distance. Must be a skilled bowman.
Leave this to me. Yoru spoke as he transforms into a fairly large sized bird and flies up for a bird's eye view.
Breath of the Shapeshifters (Tatazumai no ki)
Rank: B
Range: Short
Type: Offensive/Supplementary
Chakra Cost: 20
Damage Points: 40 (If applicable)
Description: Breath of the shapeshifters is the name of Yoru’s signature shapeshifting ability. Yoru is composed of a malleable black substance formed via Yin-Yang release. The substance has no fixed properties, meaning it takes on whatever properties the user and it’s creator desires. Yoru uses this ability to shapeshift into different animate and inanimate forms. The ability provides the user with a wide array of weapons. Yoru could stretch, expand and contract at will, as well as harden itself like high grade steel in order to act like an actual durable weapon. The shapeshifting ability is not limited to weapons however, Yoru is capable of taking the shape of an animal or beast as well extensions to the user’s body, like an extra pair of arms or functional wings. Yoru’s body also becomes an infinite supply of basic munitions such as shuriken and kunai, and as such allows Yoru to be used as a long range weapon such as a bow or even an adequate replacement for CFS and CW techniques or other weapon techniques if plausible. As for special munitions, such as explosive tags (whose properties yoru can’t replicate by itself), Yoru is capable of keeping a huge supply within itself without gaining mass. The user is able to draw objects from Yoru really fast and in quick succession, at the same speed as he would from a pocket. Similarly, Yoru’s ability to shapeshift into a different weapon is instantaneous and does not consume a move or chakra. However, moving back to humanoid form or in the shape of another creature always costs a move and 40 chakra. While in weapon form, Yoru is incapable of using the rest of its abilities, with the only exception being chakra transfer technique. If allowed the property, user is able to conduct chakra and energies into Yoru without harm, and Yoru is able to reciprocate. Yoru’s ability to adapt properties is also voided as a humanoid/creature, i.e. Electricity could be channeled into Yoru without harm as a weapon, but as a humanoid he would get hurt and paralyzed. When not in combat, Yoru is passively able to use this technique to shapeshift as an ornament, a tattoo or to simply hide in the user’s shadow.
The name Breath of shapeshifters implies, a power or energy bestowed upon by the (orginal) shapeshifters. The technique is jokingly called Tanuki no jutsu (Racoon-dog technique), a pun on it’s name, Tatazumai-no-ki. Tanuki in japanese lore are also renowned mischievous shapeshifters, with abilities that most closely resembles Yoru’s own.
Are you hurt? Mugetsu repeats himself.
I'm okay. That .... Yoru covered me up.
You wont have any idea who that might be would you?
..... i dont know
If you say so. Mugetsu turns around in direction of the two scavengers in suspicion but the fog had gotten thicker.
What you dont believe me?
Mugetsu stays silent as chakra sensing begins to pick up people closing in. Three to be exact.

Give up
You cant run
You're surrounded

Said the 3 assailants, one of them is a woman. Mugetsu noticed a curious detail, the voices came from a direction opposite of the locations chakra sensory provided Mugetsu. Maybe Mugetsu was rusty, but all 3 voices coming from opposite directions was a pattern.
(Utsusemi no Jutsu) - Empty Cicada Shell Technique
Rank: D
Type:Supplementary
Range:Short-Long
Chakra Cost: 10
Damage Points:N/A
Description: Forming the needed hand seal Ram, a shinobi can project his voice to a different area to hide their location and the number of allies at their side. It is an excellent complement to stealth tactics.
Without a warning, a kunai flew towards Mugetsu from the backside that Mugetsu deflected. Predictable behavior. He thought to himself. The other two would go for the girl now.... Mugetsu looks at the girl and unsurprisingly at the edge of the view two men are seen coming at her. They were lightly armored, with weapons unsheathed.
(Sonido) - Sound Ceremony
Rank: S
Type: Offensive/Defensive
Range: Short-Long
Chakra cost: 40
Damage Points: 80
Description: Sound ceremony is an advanced sound manipulation skill. The technique falls in the broad of category of body flicker techniques, techniques that involve use of chakra for a sudden burst of speed. Sound ceremony does not involve any hand seals, the user begins by channeling a wave of sound that goes deep into the ground and travels back to the user, the travel time (back and forth) of the first wave is instant much like hindering sound and is meant to analyze the area (up to long range), the wave comes back carrying the information of the innate molecular vibrations of the surrounding area. Following the first wave, the user charges himself with chakra and travels to a distance, in a single step, as he lands, he sends a wave that travels into the ground and comes back, bouncing him off the surface yet again. The user could repeat this process for a maximum of 6 steps, the distance of each step itself depends on the user’s desire as well as his mastery in Taijutsu (10m normally, 20m for taijutsu specialists or Nb tai users, and 25m for those who have mastered NB Tai). The speed of the user as he travels is nearly untraceable to naked eye akin to leg weights (defined by a multiplier of x2 in the speed formula). Each step sends ripples through the surface user is stepping on, crushing the area and crumbling it into gravel. Though the process takes time (occurs between one to two second after the user steps off) , meaning the user could be on his third step by the time the area around the first step breaks apart. The technique is similar to a destructive sound wave, but it does not crush objects from sheer force. The wave released after each step, has the specific frequency that breaks the molecular bonds of the object in contact, causing it to fall apart (Vibrating an object at a frequency similar to that of its molecular frequency, causes it to fall apart. I.e. an opera singer breaking a glass with her voice). After at least 3 steps (2 seconds for a master) of moving around, the user could hit the opponent directly releasing the wave into the body, crushing the bones in the targeted area or limb. The technique can seamlessly be combined with another taijutsu for maximum potential damage. First movement is considered the first step, the user crushes the ground beneath him as makes his first move as detailed in the picture below .
Note: Usable 3 times per conflict.

-Effective against solid elements (i.e. steel, and crystal) upto its own rank. Distorts the shape of liquid substances and allows the user to step off them, even when submerged.
-If used to attack the enemy on the first or second step, the damage is reduced to ½ and only causes mild numbness to the targets body (apart from the damage itself).
-The damage of the technique does not root from hindering sound waves. The area of effect of the destructive waves is circular of the same radial range as the travel distance (10,20 or 25m). Surface/objects caught between multiple waves is crushed into finer grain.
-Requires mastery of Sound ninjutsu and taijutsu.
-Visual depiction:
Mugetsu faces himself towards the girl and presses his feat. He disappears from sight with a blinding speed grabbing the girl with him. He leaves her at a distance and runs back at the assailant on the left still confused by the situation. In a single punch to the rib cage, he murders the assailant. The crackling sound of his bones crumbling could be heard at a distance. He faces the second assailant who fell on the ground from fear. Mugetsu's hands and face are bloody.
I only need one captive. Make your decision.
The assailant trembles and runs away hastily. Mugetsu faces towards the last of the three attackers, still in hiding. She thinks he doesn't know. Maybe she forgot she threw a kunai at him. She's trying to hold her breathing, but she's panicked. The gasps could be heard from a distance as Mugetsu walks towards the brush. He grabs her by the hair and pulls her out dragging her body on the ground back towards the girl. He faces the woman towards the girl.

You know this face?
I dont. The girl speaks in a trembling voice. She was shaken up by the incidence. She wasn't as hard as she claimed to be earlier.
Alright. Mugetsu puts the woman on the ground. Speak!
Screw you!
Mugetsu takes her hand and breaks a finger.
Ugh! F*ck you.
Mugetsu breaks two more finger
I won't speak a word. She flails at him digging her nails on his face.
Listen woman, I'll keep going. He turns her around and dislocates a shoulder.
You sadist!........
He faces her back at him. Let's cut this short, you know there is one way out of this. Even if the prospect of getting out alive doesn't seem that likely, consider a swift death for yourself.
Not a fucking word for a monster like you, i'd rather bite my own to-
Mugetsu steps on her throat and crushes her. I wish I had the patience of torture.
Mugetsu looks at the girl bloodier than he was before. Guess I need to wash up, you want some water?
The girl nods
Come with me first, I'm curious about something.
They head towards a the scavengers he noticed earlier. They walk up to them to find, two butchered up bodies. Yoru drops a person in front of them.
This one is a talker
The bowman?
Yes
The person was bald, overweight, ragged clothes, overall repulsive to look at. Skilled with the bow though. Apparently also smart enough to talk as well.
Look, I don't want any trouble. If I knew people of your caliber were protecting her, I would've never taken up the job!
What job?
To kill the girl.
Mugetsu looks at the girl as she keeps her head down in silence.
Who is she?
What? you don't know? Who are you to her?
Mugetsu slaps the man's face. Answer the damn question.
S-she is the daughter of Maeda.
Maeda?
You dont- Mugetsu glares at the man. They are a prominent family in Tazuma!
Why are they a prominent family?
Their family leads a settlement. It's actually really well situated. They control the waterways and irrigable lands in the area.
Really important in the Iron peninsula...
y-yes!
Yoru, we have another runner by the way.
On it.
Still shaped like a bird, Yoru flies away. Linked to Mugetsu's thoughts, he didn't need to ask further questions.
Mugetsu turns back at the bald fat man. You've earned this. Mugetsu swiftly snaps his neck making it as painless as possible.
No! The girl yells. Why did you kill him?
Why does it matter?
What of his family?
........ They'll be sad?
You really are a monster
Girl, you're too young to school me on conflict. People dont reform over night, not in warfare at least. Look at them! Mugetsu points towards the two butchered men. Did they had families?
.......... The girl stays quiet for a brief period. They did... they were workers from my village.
Does your village restrict the waterways for other villages?
We would never do that! My father is a kind man.
Naiveté? Maybe. But she certainly seems to be aware of the politics in the region. Mugetsu thought to himself
Tazuma used to be a peaceful land. My family was among the first settlers. It only made sense to build a settlement around irrigable land. Many communities branched off from ours and covered the nearby areas. People were kind to each other. The collapse of nearby states started this endless conflict. Migrants moved in and communities across Tazuma took them as necessary. Resources became scarce and tensions began. If that wasn't enough to tear us apart bandits started attacking villages. They said, we now had to pay for their 'protection'. Forced villages to produce crops that fed no one, but they said these fetched a good price. The villages the refused were razed......
What's your name?
Fumi
Who was the monk?
My Uncle.

LLM
Continuing Mission.
Arriving from: https://animebase.me/threads/tetsukai-125.756138/#post-21912670
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Mugetsu and the Fumi enters Tazuma, she leads the way to her settlement. Yoru catches up not long after and drops next to the two in a humanoid form.
I followed the trail of blood. Please wash yourself.
Fumi looks Yoru and bows. Thank you for saving me
Oh She talks now?
You missed a bunch.
So did you. I've got news.
Brief me as we go.
Yoru and Mugetsu engage in the conversation telepathically
I followed the runner, luckily you scared him enough that he didnt bother trying to cover his tracks or look to see if he's being followed.
Guess where he ran to?

The monastery
Bingo! our friend the Monk was involved.
He didn't look like a Samurai. Certainly didn't fight like one.
He wasn't. He was a bandit.
Why do the Samurai need bandits?
Maybe he was testing you? I'm not sure, but I do know that the Samurai have been in agreement with a group of Bandits. He did report your strength to be at least 2 sections.
What's that?
So we beat a squad of 4 effortlessly. A section is 3-4 squads, roughly 12 to 15 men. That's how Samurai organize themselves. They'll likely send a platoon.
So you think they'll attack? What interest does the Samurai have Tazuma?
I wonder
How did they manage to align with the bandits? Tetsukai is littered with dead bodies on both sides.
We're here!
Fumi Points at the cliff and runs towards it. She stands on the edge and looks below.
That's my village.
You must be registered for see images
Looks peaceful. Yoru spoke calmingly
The trio walked through the guarded gate, escorted by Fumi. The news quickly breaks of her return, and as the trio enter the courtyard they are promptly surrounded by a group of spearmen. Lightly armored, shoddy footwork. They were no fighters. It's actually amusing how much you can tell about people from their actions. Then I wonder what makes everyone think they could take me. Do I look clumsy? Mugetsu thought to himself. A man breaks through the circle
Fumi... What are you doing with my daughter?
We came for ransom
The spearman too a sharper stance.
Your insolence!-
What he's trying to say is. We are her escorts.
It's true father! They saved my life.
The man looked at Mugetsu all bloody. Then I must repay the kindness. The men will escort you, please freshen up. We may talk afterward.

Mugetsu and Yoru are provided facilities to bathe, clothes and food before their audience. Afterwards, they are promptly escorted to the Maedo senior. As they walk through the hallways, they can notice the stationed guards have better armor. Maybe they didn't appreciate your joke? said Yoru sarcastically. You always have to escalate things. The two arrive at a wide room, Maeda senior is at the other end of it. The room is full of guards, Mugetsu takes a look around while walking up.

Let me begin by introducing myself, I am Maeda Naomasa. I govern this settlement.
Thank you for your hospitality. Yoru bows and makes Mugetsu bow with him.
Fumi went to lengths to describe you. Despite your, excuse my tone, murderous appearance and tendency to jest, I believe her. Your offenses are excused.
You're so kind. Mugetsu spoke sarcastically
Stop it!
Let's get to business-
Begin by explaining why my daughter was with you?
... Mugetsu glared at Naomasa
She was given to us by her uncle for safeguarding. We were attacked during our travels, we thought it best to bring her back here.
My Brother gave my Daughter to a pair of strangers?!?
Who says we're strangers?
Given you don't even know his name! Who are you?
Merely traveling mercenaries sire
A company of two?
I can't bear this. Mugetsu stood up. Look. your settlement is likely gonna get attacked.
By who?
Bandits. Maybe even Samurai, led by your brother.
You dare my brother! Guards!
The stationed soldiers, circle around Mugetsu and Yoru. One squad enters from the door at the side to guard Naomasa, two more enter from the entrance they came from.
You don't want this.
Mugetsu these are innocent people...
I will deal with you two later, I have other matters to attend to.

Mugetsu and Yoru are taken to a makeshift prison. About an hour pass by
It's evening
Yeah
They’re probably preparing an attack. I overheard the guards about some envoy coming from a different village.
How did we get involved in this?
You got curious. You don’t need any ancient weapon or artifact
I don’t
But I guess curiosity is all you have
…I feel like I don’t belong
You’re like a koi in a pond full of goldfish
What’s the difference?
Exactly. You’re the same as the rest of them, just bred to be special
….. Mugetsu gazes at the sky through a window
No moon tonight
We need to help the girl
I’m glad you feel that way
Another hour goes by, an envoy arrives. The settlement is well lit for the occasion. The envoy came from the Southern gate, one of two routes inside this village. Footsteps can be heard across the area.

Here they come
I count 36. Every single one of them have higher than normal chakra reserves. These are fighters. But considering the village’s own guards, that’s too small of an invading force. Yoru!
Ill scout

Breath of the Shapeshifters (Tatazumai no ki)
Rank: B
Range: Short
Type: Offensive/Supplementary
Chakra Cost: 20
Damage Points: 40 (If applicable)
Description: Breath of the shapeshifters is the name of Yoru’s signature shapeshifting ability. Yoru is composed of a malleable black substance formed via Yin-Yang release. The substance has no fixed properties, meaning it takes on whatever properties the user and it’s creator desires. Yoru uses this ability to shapeshift into different animate and inanimate forms. The ability provides the user with a wide array of weapons. Yoru could stretch, expand and contract at will, as well as harden itself like high grade steel in order to act like an actual durable weapon. The shapeshifting ability is not limited to weapons however, Yoru is capable of taking the shape of an animal or beast as well extensions to the user’s body, like an extra pair of arms or functional wings. Yoru’s body also becomes an infinite supply of basic munitions such as shuriken and kunai, and as such allows Yoru to be used as a long range weapon such as a bow or even an adequate replacement for CFS and CW techniques or other weapon techniques if plausible. As for special munitions, such as explosive tags (whose properties yoru can’t replicate by itself), Yoru is capable of keeping a huge supply within itself without gaining mass. The user is able to draw objects from Yoru really fast and in quick succession, at the same speed as he would from a pocket. Similarly, Yoru’s ability to shapeshift into a different weapon is instantaneous and does not consume a move or chakra. However, moving back to humanoid form or in the shape of another creature always costs a move and 40 chakra. While in weapon form, Yoru is incapable of using the rest of its abilities, with the only exception being chakra transfer technique. If allowed the property, user is able to conduct chakra and energies into Yoru without harm, and Yoru is able to reciprocate. Yoru’s ability to adapt properties is also voided as a humanoid/creature, i.e. Electricity could be channeled into Yoru without harm as a weapon, but as a humanoid he would get hurt and paralyzed. When not in combat, Yoru is passively able to use this technique to shapeshift as an ornament, a tattoo or to simply hide in the user’s shadow.
The name Breath of shapeshifters implies, a power or energy bestowed upon by the (orginal) shapeshifters. The technique is jokingly called Tanuki no jutsu (Racoon-dog technique), a pun on it’s name, Tatazumai-no-ki. Tanuki in japanese lore are also renowned mischievous shapeshifters, with abilities that most closely resembles Yoru’s own.

Yoru shapes himself into a small bird and escapes from between the caged window. Mugetsu takes off the robe given to him and begins to rip it into makeshift bandages to restore his combat attire. He kicks the door open and immediately knocks out the two guards, tying them down in the prison. He jumps on top of the rooftop and begins to make his way to the Maedas. By the time Mugetsu gets there, the conflict had begun. Not a single casualty on the enemy end, they must have gotten them by surprise. Did they had blueprints to the settlement? He thought. Mugetsu begins to scout for Fumi and tracks enemies closing into the location him and the arrogant father of Fumi conversed. Mugetsu watches from the rooftops, it looks like the majority of them went after the head family. The guards are busy defending other villages. 4 men stayed outside the building.

(Fūton: Kaiten Shuriken) - Wind Release: Rotating Shuriken
Type: Offensive
Rank: C
Range: Short-Mid
Chakra:15
Damage: 30
Description: This technique will infuse wind-based chakra into bladed weapons. The user can than manipulate the blades in a spinning manner to attack the target.

4 shuriken curve around the 4 guards, landing precise and lethal cuts. Minimum noise. Mugetsu lands at the doorsteps and weaves a few hand seals.

(Meisaigakure no Jutsu) - Hiding with Camouflage Technique
Rank: A
Type: Supplementary
Range: Short
Chakra Cost: 30 (-10 per turn active)
Damage Points: N/A
Description: This is a ninja escape technique that allows the user after performing the Tiger hand seal to control how light is reflected around their body with chakra inflections. The technique also erases the user's scent and shadow, and is usable on any terrain, making it ideal not only for covert maneuvers but also offensive strikes. Perceiving the user's position is possible only for ninja who are astute enough to observe minute variations within their surrounding environment, such as distortions of air currents in the immediate vicinity or distinguishing sounds, i.e. footsteps etc. However, the usefulness of this ability can be entirely negated by those with special vision or sensory skills. The Second Tsuchikage, Mū's mastery of this technique helped earn him the moniker "Non-Person" seemingly having neither form nor chakra while the technique was active. Thus, he could not be sensed through traditional means.
Note: Technique lasts a total of 3 turns

(Muon Satsujin Jutsu) - Silent Homicide Technique
Rank: D
Type:Attack
Range:Short-Mid
Chakra Cost:10
Damage Points:20
Description: Muon Satsujin Jutsu, the ability to commit a silent homicide, is a technique to dispatch your foe with no warning. Your quick speed and skills will instantly kill them before they can provide a defense. Best tactic is when used with Hidden Mist jutsu. The technique works by having the user focus his chakra and his complete attention on moving fluidly, rapidly but muffling any sound he may make while moving as well as his presence, etc. It doesn't suppress his chakra or hides it but it can make the opponent virtually undetected if he manages to get on the opponents blind spot

Mugetsu runs through the hallways invisible, assassinating people without a sound. Dead bodies fall one after another, the last two men guarding the door to the Maedas fall. This time with loud screams shocking the head family and the assailant themselves. Mugetsu knocks the door in a slow ominous manner as if death itself was at the door. After the longest few seconds, he kicks the doors open.

(Sakki) - Killing Intent
Rank: D – S (S rank)
Type: Supplementary
Range: Short - Long
Chakra cost: N/A
Damage points: N/A
Description: Killing Intent pertains to the ability of the user giving off their pure killing intention and having it affect their opponent and others around them up to the point of paralyzing them. When the Killing Intent is particularly strong, it can even give the victim visions of their own gruesome death, nausea, pain, etc. This can cause the Killing Intent to be confused with a genjutsu, despite not being a genjutsu at all; simply a showcase of intention and power. The target will feel as if facing an overwhelming enemy and, even if not a sensor, will suddenly feel the pressure of the users chakra and its magnitude, making the effect that much more dramatic. To effectively be used, the user needs to focus on his target and concentrate on the killing intent towards it, meaning that one must see the target and be focused on it. The strength of the Killing Intent is dependent on many factors and go through several levels. If a difference in rank smaller than 2 ranks exist, the enemy will feel only the pressure and the ominous presence of their dark intentions. Its enough to lose your grasp on a weapon or stay clinched to it (depending on the situation) or even to hesitate in an attack, stumble or mess up a handseal, all depending on the situation and proximity. The effect is small and normally not that significant but can be effectively used to pressure enemies into making a mistake. If a difference of 2 ranks or more exist, the enemy will be frozen, almost unable to move as the overwhelming killing intent dominates their own conscious and riddles them with nightmarish versions of death. The paralyzation gradually weakens as time passes and can only be maintained while the user is focused on the target. The further away the target, the weaker it is and it can only fully paralyze a target within short range. Similarly, the more targets one focuses on, the weaker the effect is in each one (divinding the effects equally between the number of targets). Lastly, the stronger the user is in relation to the target, the stronger the effect will be. The target can counter Killing Intent directed at it through pain, "mind cleansing" techniques or their own Killing Intent.
Note: Intensity of technique depends on the rank of the user, distance to target and number of targets one is focusing on
Note: Can only be used once
Note: Lasts only while the user is focusing on it and while focusing on it the user can't mold chakra


Excluding the Maedas, there are 4 assailants in the room. Mugetsu’s killing intent overwhelms them, 3 of them start screaming and commit suicide. The last one, probably the leader, resisted the urge. Wh-who are yo- He muttered before he got interrupted by a kunai straight to his forehead. Mugetsu reveals his face to Fumi as she sighs in relief.

You came!
You! Naomasa yelled.
Save it. Mugetsu interrupted. There will be more, I count 24 here. There were 36 of them?
Mugetsu steps out to head towards the village, where he finds a large group of injured guards staring at him. It seems they were skilled enough to fend off the invaders, though Mugetsu did most of the work. They were untrained men, but their eyes had a certain determination. They wanted to protect their governor.
Stand down men! Naomasa steps out and signals the guards to stand down. I owe you an apology-
Before Naomasa could finish his sentence, Yoru jumps down in front of them. It seems everyone is getting interrupted today.
Mugetsu, there are more bandits are coming. Samurai as well. Including your brother. Yoru looks at Naomasa

A horn blows from a distance. It was a military signal, the arrival of an army.
Go greet your guests, Governor. Whatever you do, stay inside. Mugetsu spoke as his eyes turned yellow, and his skin darkened. Yoru attached himself to Mugetsu adding a pair of demonic bat wings.

Radiation Secret Technique: Draco (Hakkton Hijutsu: Ryu)
Rank: S
Type: Supplementary/Defensive
Range: Short
Chakra cost: 40 (15/turn)
Damage Points: N/a
Description: Draco is a radiation technique classified as hijutsu because the technique itself is not radiation element (disregarding the phase two) as it does not involve nature transformation. But rather it’s a body adaption developed by the users of the element. Due to the frequent use of Radiation chakra and constant exposure of it radiation as a defensive measure the body develops better melanocytes.
Phase One: The user begins by performing tiger seal which fluctuates and circulates chakra around his body; the chakra activates the melanocytes into producing more melanin which secretes into the skin cells until the skin eventually turns pitch black. Increased melanin concentration within the skin gives the user immunity to radiation as a result of internal conversion and photoprotection.
Phase Two: After gaining immunity, the user begins to circulate radioactive chakra through his body freely. As a result the skin hardens around the users limbs and cracks up slightly forming scale like structure, the fingers hardens and get more pointy forming claws. This change in looks along with black skin gives the user a Black Dragon like appearance which reflects the name of this technique. Due to the circulation of radiation chakra throughout the body all of users existing fire and lightning techniques gets stronger (Additional 20 Damage) and spreads ionizing radiation at an accelerated rate. All Earth, Water and Wind type techniques are released contaminated with radioactivity as a result breathing, drinking or touching the elements could result in acute radiation syndrome. The technique isn’t simultaneous activation of many different chakra natures but rather it initially circulates radioactive chakra within the body and then activates other natures which is why it is possible to use other elements while the mode lasts.
Restrictions: Lasts 5 turns, usable twice.
-Phase one remains in effect even after the technique ends, the users appearance slowly restores itself. Alternately a medical treatment or secreting the melanin (like ink) could restore the user.

Mugetsu flew up as Naomasa nodded. Naomasa climbed up the walls of the southern gate. The monk stood in front with a group of 24 Samurai behind him. They were well equipped and highly trained. Naomasa gazed around to see the eastern entrance sieged by the bandits, nearly 50 of them.

First, you abandon your home brother. Now you sell us out.
Pfft, it was your decision brother that led us to this point. YOU encouraged the communities to take more refugees. Made it difficult for all of us. Look at this place now! Look at yourself now. I will be a far better Governor. This place will be far better off as a province of the Shogunate.
And those bandits? They’ll bend over and be proper citizens under your new rule? Your greed knows no bounds. I will not allow it.
Then I’ll bury you with this settlement. The monk walks back as his men begin to rain flaming arrows into the settlement.

(Fūton: Kaiten Shuriken) - Wind Release: Rotating Shuriken
Type: Offensive
Rank: C
Range: Short-Mid
Chakra:15
Damage: 30
Description: This technique will infuse wind-based chakra into bladed weapons. The user can than manipulate the blades in a spinning manner to attack the target.

Yoru begins to release shuriken from his body empowered by Mugetsu’s wind release that rain down on the bandits and the Samurai alike. He begins to thin out a big portion of the bandits but only manages to kill 2 Samurai before the others put up their shields. The monk stares at Mugetsu.

Holy causes am I right?
Haha! You got me
Don’t worry I don’t judge
I’m sure you don’t. One madman to another right? I heard what you did to that squad I sent after you
You sent after your niece* Mugetsu corrected him. Could’ve killed her yourself at the monastery. Oh that was still Samurai territory! you were afraid people would talk? Does the Shogun know of your actions?
No point hiding, he doesn’t. He believes I’m bringing peace to these lands.
Meanwhile, you’ll grow hallucinogenic crops in the area.
Guilty.
Why involve me though?
Didn’t wanted to. It was a condition set by the mystery man.
The mystery man shrouded in smoke?

Mhm. Good exchange. It put the bandits in my pocket.
Damn! Which bandits again?
Don’t act dumb. The monk turns around to point towards the eastern entrance only to realize the screaming. One person just exploded? Did he see that right?

Radiation release: Orion’s Chain (Hakkton: Orion no kusari)
Rank: S
Type: Supplementary/Offensive
Range: Short-Mid
Chakra cost: 40
Damage Points: 80
Description: The technique is a long lasting self-sustaining chain process aimed to destroy a multitude of enemies in sequences. The user first picks a ‘host’ target and transfers radioactive chakra within the person either by direct physical contact or using another radiation release technique as an extension. This causes a radioactive contamination but does not carry the effect of acute radiation syndrome or reveal any symptoms that cause early detection. Instead the contamination leeches and builds up chakra from within the host’s body until sufficient energy is collected (3 turns), this causes the hosts body to explode spontaneously causing splash damage to an area of 50m. People within range suffer minor internal damage, but the blood and fumes released from the exploded body spreads the contamination across the air, soil and water. The mutated cells from the radiation acts as pathogen (being able to penetrate even the most dense articles of clothing) to spread the contamination across more targets who explode in the next 3 turns, resulting in a chain of events that sequentially spreads out and kills victims indifferently.
Restriction: Usable thrice per battle.

Well that’s a shame. Mugetsu laughed as the two fallen Samurai explode starting the chain in the samurai group as well. Took a couple dozen seconds as the mayhem settled down. 24 Samurai, and 48 bandits dead. The monk was on the ground, his nerves exposed, his eyes red.

I wouldn't say that was a good exchange.
The door opened as the monk began to say something. He was inaudible, wanted to say something but couldn’t. He laid on the ground choking on his own vomit as everyone watched. Fumi began to cry and run towards the monk only to be held by Naomasa. Mugetsu turned to Naomasa.
You wouldn’t appreciate what I did. The water supply is contaminated, at least for a month. I had to do it as necessary to ruin the crops they would grow. They would affect far more lives if left to someone else. I’m hoping your food supplies would last you long enough
……I do not approve. I couldn’t, you’ve likely ruined lives. But I’ve heard enough to conclude it wasn’t a conflict of your choosing. You did more than what could be expected of you. If there is anything I could do for you?
Nothing at all. I’ve just received a signal. It’ll looks like I’ll be heading out soon.

Continuing Mission.
Arriving from: https://animebase.me/threads/tetsukai-125.756138/#post-21912670
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Mugetsu and the Fumi enters Tazuma, she leads the way to her settlement. Yoru catches up not long after and drops next to the two in a humanoid form.
I followed the trail of blood. Please wash yourself.
Fumi looks Yoru and bows. Thank you for saving me
Oh She talks now?
You missed a bunch.
So did you. I've got news.
Brief me as we go.
Yoru and Mugetsu engage in the conversation telepathically
I followed the runner, luckily you scared him enough that he didnt bother trying to cover his tracks or look to see if he's being followed.
Guess where he ran to?

The monastery
Bingo! our friend the Monk was involved.
He didn't look like a Samurai. Certainly didn't fight like one.
He wasn't. He was a bandit.
Why do the Samurai need bandits?
Maybe he was testing you? I'm not sure, but I do know that the Samurai have been in agreement with a group of Bandits. He did report your strength to be at least 2 sections.
What's that?
So we beat a squad of 4 effortlessly. A section is 3-4 squads, roughly 12 to 15 men. That's how Samurai organize themselves. They'll likely send a platoon.
So you think they'll attack? What interest does the Samurai have Tazuma?
I wonder
How did they manage to align with the bandits? Tetsukai is littered with dead bodies on both sides.
We're here!
Fumi Points at the cliff and runs towards it. She stands on the edge and looks below.
That's my village.
You must be registered for see images
Looks peaceful. Yoru spoke calmingly
The trio walked through the guarded gate, escorted by Fumi. The news quickly breaks of her return, and as the trio enter the courtyard they are promptly surrounded by a group of spearmen. Lightly armored, shoddy footwork. They were no fighters. It's actually amusing how much you can tell about people from their actions. Then I wonder what makes everyone think they could take me. Do I look clumsy? Mugetsu thought to himself. A man breaks through the circle
Fumi... What are you doing with my daughter?
We came for ransom
The spearman too a sharper stance.
Your insolence!-
What he's trying to say is. We are her escorts.
It's true father! They saved my life.
The man looked at Mugetsu all bloody. Then I must repay the kindness. The men will escort you, please freshen up. We may talk afterward.

Mugetsu and Yoru are provided facilities to bathe, clothes and food before their audience. Afterwards, they are promptly escorted to the Maedo senior. As they walk through the hallways, they can notice the stationed guards have better armor. Maybe they didn't appreciate your joke? said Yoru sarcastically. You always have to escalate things. The two arrive at a wide room, Maeda senior is at the other end of it. The room is full of guards, Mugetsu takes a look around while walking up.

Let me begin by introducing myself, I am Maeda Naomasa. I govern this settlement.
Thank you for your hospitality. Yoru bows and makes Mugetsu bow with him.
Fumi went to lengths to describe you. Despite your, excuse my tone, murderous appearance and tendency to jest, I believe her. Your offenses are excused.
You're so kind. Mugetsu spoke sarcastically
Stop it!
Let's get to business-
Begin by explaining why my daughter was with you?
... Mugetsu glared at Naomasa
She was given to us by her uncle for safeguarding. We were attacked during our travels, we thought it best to bring her back here.
My Brother gave my Daughter to a pair of strangers?!?
Who says we're strangers?
Given you don't even know his name! Who are you?
Merely traveling mercenaries sire
A company of two?
I can't bear this. Mugetsu stood up. Look. your settlement is likely gonna get attacked.
By who?
Bandits. Maybe even Samurai, led by your brother.
You dare my brother! Guards!
The stationed soldiers, circle around Mugetsu and Yoru. One squad enters from the door at the side to guard Naomasa, two more enter from the entrance they came from.
You don't want this.
Mugetsu these are innocent people...
I will deal with you two later, I have other matters to attend to.

Mugetsu and Yoru are taken to a makeshift prison. About an hour pass by
It's evening
Yeah
They’re probably preparing an attack. I overheard the guards about some envoy coming from a different village.
How did we get involved in this?
You got curious. You don’t need any ancient weapon or artifact
I don’t
But I guess curiosity is all you have
…I feel like I don’t belong
You’re like a koi in a pond full of goldfish
What’s the difference?
Exactly. You’re the same as the rest of them, just bred to be special
….. Mugetsu gazes at the sky through a window
No moon tonight
We need to help the girl
I’m glad you feel that way
Another hour goes by, an envoy arrives. The settlement is well lit for the occasion. The envoy came from the Southern gate, one of two routes inside this village. Footsteps can be heard across the area.

Here they come
I count 36. Every single one of them have higher than normal chakra reserves. These are fighters. But considering the village’s own guards, that’s too small of an invading force. Yoru!
Ill scout

Breath of the Shapeshifters (Tatazumai no ki)
Rank: B
Range: Short
Type: Offensive/Supplementary
Chakra Cost: 20
Damage Points: 40 (If applicable)
Description: Breath of the shapeshifters is the name of Yoru’s signature shapeshifting ability. Yoru is composed of a malleable black substance formed via Yin-Yang release. The substance has no fixed properties, meaning it takes on whatever properties the user and it’s creator desires. Yoru uses this ability to shapeshift into different animate and inanimate forms. The ability provides the user with a wide array of weapons. Yoru could stretch, expand and contract at will, as well as harden itself like high grade steel in order to act like an actual durable weapon. The shapeshifting ability is not limited to weapons however, Yoru is capable of taking the shape of an animal or beast as well extensions to the user’s body, like an extra pair of arms or functional wings. Yoru’s body also becomes an infinite supply of basic munitions such as shuriken and kunai, and as such allows Yoru to be used as a long range weapon such as a bow or even an adequate replacement for CFS and CW techniques or other weapon techniques if plausible. As for special munitions, such as explosive tags (whose properties yoru can’t replicate by itself), Yoru is capable of keeping a huge supply within itself without gaining mass. The user is able to draw objects from Yoru really fast and in quick succession, at the same speed as he would from a pocket. Similarly, Yoru’s ability to shapeshift into a different weapon is instantaneous and does not consume a move or chakra. However, moving back to humanoid form or in the shape of another creature always costs a move and 40 chakra. While in weapon form, Yoru is incapable of using the rest of its abilities, with the only exception being chakra transfer technique. If allowed the property, user is able to conduct chakra and energies into Yoru without harm, and Yoru is able to reciprocate. Yoru’s ability to adapt properties is also voided as a humanoid/creature, i.e. Electricity could be channeled into Yoru without harm as a weapon, but as a humanoid he would get hurt and paralyzed. When not in combat, Yoru is passively able to use this technique to shapeshift as an ornament, a tattoo or to simply hide in the user’s shadow.
The name Breath of shapeshifters implies, a power or energy bestowed upon by the (orginal) shapeshifters. The technique is jokingly called Tanuki no jutsu (Racoon-dog technique), a pun on it’s name, Tatazumai-no-ki. Tanuki in japanese lore are also renowned mischievous shapeshifters, with abilities that most closely resembles Yoru’s own.

Yoru shapes himself into a small bird and escapes from between the caged window. Mugetsu takes off the robe given to him and begins to rip it into makeshift bandages to restore his combat attire. He kicks the door open and immediately knocks out the two guards, tying them down in the prison. He jumps on top of the rooftop and begins to make his way to the Maedas. By the time Mugetsu gets there, the conflict had begun. Not a single casualty on the enemy end, they must have gotten them by surprise. Did they had blueprints to the settlement? He thought. Mugetsu begins to scout for Fumi and tracks enemies closing into the location him and the arrogant father of Fumi conversed. Mugetsu watches from the rooftops, it looks like the majority of them went after the head family. The guards are busy defending other villages. 4 men stayed outside the building.

(Fūton: Kaiten Shuriken) - Wind Release: Rotating Shuriken
Type: Offensive
Rank: C
Range: Short-Mid
Chakra:15
Damage: 30
Description: This technique will infuse wind-based chakra into bladed weapons. The user can than manipulate the blades in a spinning manner to attack the target.

4 shuriken curve around the 4 guards, landing precise and lethal cuts. Minimum noise. Mugetsu lands at the doorsteps and weaves a few hand seals.

(Meisaigakure no Jutsu) - Hiding with Camouflage Technique
Rank: A
Type: Supplementary
Range: Short
Chakra Cost: 30 (-10 per turn active)
Damage Points: N/A
Description: This is a ninja escape technique that allows the user after performing the Tiger hand seal to control how light is reflected around their body with chakra inflections. The technique also erases the user's scent and shadow, and is usable on any terrain, making it ideal not only for covert maneuvers but also offensive strikes. Perceiving the user's position is possible only for ninja who are astute enough to observe minute variations within their surrounding environment, such as distortions of air currents in the immediate vicinity or distinguishing sounds, i.e. footsteps etc. However, the usefulness of this ability can be entirely negated by those with special vision or sensory skills. The Second Tsuchikage, Mū's mastery of this technique helped earn him the moniker "Non-Person" seemingly having neither form nor chakra while the technique was active. Thus, he could not be sensed through traditional means.
Note: Technique lasts a total of 3 turns

(Muon Satsujin Jutsu) - Silent Homicide Technique
Rank: D
Type:Attack
Range:Short-Mid
Chakra Cost:10
Damage Points:20
Description: Muon Satsujin Jutsu, the ability to commit a silent homicide, is a technique to dispatch your foe with no warning. Your quick speed and skills will instantly kill them before they can provide a defense. Best tactic is when used with Hidden Mist jutsu. The technique works by having the user focus his chakra and his complete attention on moving fluidly, rapidly but muffling any sound he may make while moving as well as his presence, etc. It doesn't suppress his chakra or hides it but it can make the opponent virtually undetected if he manages to get on the opponents blind spot

Mugetsu runs through the hallways invisible, assassinating people without a sound. Dead bodies fall one after another, the last two men guarding the door to the Maedas fall. This time with loud screams shocking the head family and the assailant themselves. Mugetsu knocks the door in a slow ominous manner as if death itself was at the door. After the longest few seconds, he kicks the doors open.

(Sakki) - Killing Intent
Rank: D – S (S rank)
Type: Supplementary
Range: Short - Long
Chakra cost: N/A
Damage points: N/A
Description: Killing Intent pertains to the ability of the user giving off their pure killing intention and having it affect their opponent and others around them up to the point of paralyzing them. When the Killing Intent is particularly strong, it can even give the victim visions of their own gruesome death, nausea, pain, etc. This can cause the Killing Intent to be confused with a genjutsu, despite not being a genjutsu at all; simply a showcase of intention and power. The target will feel as if facing an overwhelming enemy and, even if not a sensor, will suddenly feel the pressure of the users chakra and its magnitude, making the effect that much more dramatic. To effectively be used, the user needs to focus on his target and concentrate on the killing intent towards it, meaning that one must see the target and be focused on it. The strength of the Killing Intent is dependent on many factors and go through several levels. If a difference in rank smaller than 2 ranks exist, the enemy will feel only the pressure and the ominous presence of their dark intentions. Its enough to lose your grasp on a weapon or stay clinched to it (depending on the situation) or even to hesitate in an attack, stumble or mess up a handseal, all depending on the situation and proximity. The effect is small and normally not that significant but can be effectively used to pressure enemies into making a mistake. If a difference of 2 ranks or more exist, the enemy will be frozen, almost unable to move as the overwhelming killing intent dominates their own conscious and riddles them with nightmarish versions of death. The paralyzation gradually weakens as time passes and can only be maintained while the user is focused on the target. The further away the target, the weaker it is and it can only fully paralyze a target within short range. Similarly, the more targets one focuses on, the weaker the effect is in each one (divinding the effects equally between the number of targets). Lastly, the stronger the user is in relation to the target, the stronger the effect will be. The target can counter Killing Intent directed at it through pain, "mind cleansing" techniques or their own Killing Intent.
Note: Intensity of technique depends on the rank of the user, distance to target and number of targets one is focusing on
Note: Can only be used once
Note: Lasts only while the user is focusing on it and while focusing on it the user can't mold chakra


Excluding the Maedas, there are 4 assailants in the room. Mugetsu’s killing intent overwhelms them, 3 of them start screaming and commit suicide. The last one, probably the leader, resisted the urge. Wh-who are yo- He muttered before he got interrupted by a kunai straight to his forehead. Mugetsu reveals his face to Fumi as she sighs in relief.

You came!
You! Naomasa yelled.
Save it. Mugetsu interrupted. There will be more, I count 24 here. There were 36 of them?
Mugetsu steps out to head towards the village, where he finds a large group of injured guards staring at him. It seems they were skilled enough to fend off the invaders, though Mugetsu did most of the work. They were untrained men, but their eyes had a certain determination. They wanted to protect their governor.
Stand down men! Naomasa steps out and signals the guards to stand down. I owe you an apology-
Before Naomasa could finish his sentence, Yoru jumps down in front of them. It seems everyone is getting interrupted today.
Mugetsu, there are more bandits are coming. Samurai as well. Including your brother. Yoru looks at Naomasa

A horn blows from a distance. It was a military signal, the arrival of an army.
Go greet your guests, Governor. Whatever you do, stay inside. Mugetsu spoke as his eyes turned yellow, and his skin darkened. Yoru attached himself to Mugetsu adding a pair of demonic bat wings.

Radiation Secret Technique: Draco (Hakkton Hijutsu: Ryu)
Rank: S
Type: Supplementary/Defensive
Range: Short
Chakra cost: 40 (15/turn)
Damage Points: N/a
Description: Draco is a radiation technique classified as hijutsu because the technique itself is not radiation element (disregarding the phase two) as it does not involve nature transformation. But rather it’s a body adaption developed by the users of the element. Due to the frequent use of Radiation chakra and constant exposure of it radiation as a defensive measure the body develops better melanocytes.
Phase One: The user begins by performing tiger seal which fluctuates and circulates chakra around his body; the chakra activates the melanocytes into producing more melanin which secretes into the skin cells until the skin eventually turns pitch black. Increased melanin concentration within the skin gives the user immunity to radiation as a result of internal conversion and photoprotection.
Phase Two: After gaining immunity, the user begins to circulate radioactive chakra through his body freely. As a result the skin hardens around the users limbs and cracks up slightly forming scale like structure, the fingers hardens and get more pointy forming claws. This change in looks along with black skin gives the user a Black Dragon like appearance which reflects the name of this technique. Due to the circulation of radiation chakra throughout the body all of users existing fire and lightning techniques gets stronger (Additional 20 Damage) and spreads ionizing radiation at an accelerated rate. All Earth, Water and Wind type techniques are released contaminated with radioactivity as a result breathing, drinking or touching the elements could result in acute radiation syndrome. The technique isn’t simultaneous activation of many different chakra natures but rather it initially circulates radioactive chakra within the body and then activates other natures which is why it is possible to use other elements while the mode lasts.
Restrictions: Lasts 5 turns, usable twice.
-Phase one remains in effect even after the technique ends, the users appearance slowly restores itself. Alternately a medical treatment or secreting the melanin (like ink) could restore the user.


Breath of the Shapeshifters (Tatazumai no ki)
Rank: B
Range: Short
Type: Offensive/Supplementary

Damage Points: 40 (If applicable)

Mugetsu flew up as Naomasa nodded. Naomasa climbed up the walls of the southern gate. The monk stood in front with a group of 24 Samurai behind him. They were well equipped and highly trained. Naomasa gazed around to see the eastern entrance sieged by the bandits, nearly 50 of them.

First, you abandon your home brother. Now you sell us out.
Pfft, it was your decision brother that led us to this point. YOU encouraged the communities to take more refugees. Made it difficult for all of us. Look at this place now! Look at yourself now. I will be a far better Governor. This place will be far better off as a province of the Shogunate.
And those bandits? They’ll bend over and be proper citizens under your new rule? Your greed knows no bounds. I will not allow it.
Then I’ll bury you with this settlement. The monk walks back as his men begin to rain flaming arrows into the settlement.

(Fūton: Kaiten Shuriken) - Wind Release: Rotating Shuriken
Type: Offensive
Rank: C
Range: Short-Mid
Chakra:15
Damage: 30
Description: This technique will infuse wind-based chakra into bladed weapons. The user can than manipulate the blades in a spinning manner to attack the target.

Yoru begins to release shuriken from his body empowered by Mugetsu’s wind release that rain down on the bandits and the Samurai alike. He begins to thin out a big portion of the bandits but only manages to kill 2 Samurai before the others put up their shields. The monk stares at Mugetsu.

Holy causes am I right?
Haha! You got me
Don’t worry I don’t judge
I’m sure you don’t. One madman to another right? I heard what you did to that squad I sent after you
You sent after your niece* Mugetsu corrected him. Could’ve killed her yourself at the monastery. Oh that was still Samurai territory! you were afraid people would talk? Does the Shogun know of your actions?
No point hiding, he doesn’t. He believes I’m bringing peace to these lands.
Meanwhile, you’ll grow hallucinogenic crops in the area.
Guilty.
Why involve me though?
Didn’t wanted to. It was a condition set by the mystery man.
The mystery man shrouded in smoke?

Mhm. Good exchange. It put the bandits in my pocket.
Damn! Which bandits again?
Don’t act dumb. The monk turns around to point towards the eastern entrance only to realize the screaming. One person just exploded? Did he see that right?

Radiation release: Orion’s Chain (Hakkton: Orion no kusari)
Rank: S
Type: Supplementary/Offensive
Range: Short-Mid
Chakra cost: 40
Damage Points: 80
Description: The technique is a long lasting self-sustaining chain process aimed to destroy a multitude of enemies in sequences. The user first picks a ‘host’ target and transfers radioactive chakra within the person either by direct physical contact or using another radiation release technique as an extension. This causes a radioactive contamination but does not carry the effect of acute radiation syndrome or reveal any symptoms that cause early detection. Instead the contamination leeches and builds up chakra from within the host’s body until sufficient energy is collected (3 turns), this causes the hosts body to explode spontaneously causing splash damage to an area of 50m. People within range suffer minor internal damage, but the blood and fumes released from the exploded body spreads the contamination across the air, soil and water. The mutated cells from the radiation acts as pathogen (being able to penetrate even the most dense articles of clothing) to spread the contamination across more targets who explode in the next 3 turns, resulting in a chain of events that sequentially spreads out and kills victims indifferently.
Restriction: Usable thrice per battle.

Well that’s a shame. Mugetsu laughed as the two fallen Samurai explode starting the chain in the samurai group as well. Took a couple dozen seconds as the mayhem settled down. 24 Samurai, and 48 bandits dead. The monk was on the ground, his nerves exposed, his eyes red.

I wouldn't say that was a good exchange.
The door opened as the monk began to say something. He was inaudible, wanted to say something but couldn’t. He laid on the ground choking on his own vomit as everyone watched. Fumi began to cry and run towards the monk only to be held by Naomasa. Mugetsu turned to Naomasa.
You wouldn’t appreciate what I did. The water supply is contaminated, at least for a month. I had to do it as necessary to ruin the crops they would grow. They would affect far more lives if left to someone else. I’m hoping your food supplies would last you long enough
……I do not approve. I couldn’t, you’ve likely ruined lives. But I’ve heard enough to conclude it wasn’t a conflict of your choosing. You did more than what could be expected of you. If there is anything I could do for you?
Nothing at all. I’ve just received a signal. It’ll looks like I’ll be heading out soon.

Mugetsu's actions had proven fruitful. The twisted union of innocence and guilt brings about a dim light within the weapon core; within the hollow crystalline gemstone dark energies manifest within it. The mysterious man, however, did not appear. The fate of the now partially powered weapon core remain a mystery, for the time being.
