Making his way through the grave stones of those long since passed as there were even members from his academy class in this group of dead bodies. He was meant to meet with her here in a time when unrest ruled the lands as people had became nervous with the prospect of war.

The first war that happened in his life had created many disasters and an opportunity to get stronger as he had met many great warriors, like Nanashi from the hidden earth. To the fateful encounter with the legendary White Star training him in the arts of fuuinjutsu.

In all the years that he had trained he understood only one thing and that was that he was truly weak. He had grown stronger over the years and knew only five people he felt he could not beat, although he felt that way for different reasons.

The first person was Ayakashi, who no matter how strong he had become seemed to be in a place which he could never reach. An unattainable power like that of the Goddess, but having been looking up to her all this time he never understood her true power other than when she supposedly died in the Seven Bells War. It was at that time he learned that she was not unbeatable, and that he would need to become stronger to match her.

The second person was Gin, who adopted him into her family. She was known as Shinobu in public and was close with another man who was on a level beyond him. Gin was once known as the strongest shinobi in Kiri, or in a sense she was the strongest physically though rumors were that Ayakashi even took that title away from her after training.

The third person was the one who taught him the special sage arts, the some what comical kage of Kumogakure, Sanosuke and his adopted father. Though at this stage they may have to go to war as the time was drawing near for change to strike upon this world.

The forth person he felt he could not beat was Akira, from the hidden earth. He knew almost nothing about that place and as much as he knew he was strong. The man who ruled the hidden rock Akira had since vanished from power, like a ghost. As if that was not enough even his teacher who was known to be on a level similar to Ayakashi had vanished as well. His teacher known as the White Star had trained him and even saved his life in the Seven Bells War.

However now the new war was going to begin and he would need to reclaim his swords once again to rise above the doubts he had before and become a sword more polished then any other

Ayakashi

Ayakashi


S-rank
Ayakashi was about ready to leave the village and be on her way when she passed the graveyard, only to see a face that she recognized, a face of a kirigakure ninja and Sanin of the country. Ayakashi some time ago had thought him dead as one of her Hunter ninja had found the blades Kukan and Sozo adrift, passed on and traded from thief to fence and fence to trader, trader to collector only to be seen and seized by her ninja and returned home after the collector had been assassinated. Ayakashi as always kept the summoning scrolls of the weapons on her at all times, it was the duty of the Mizukage to keep the weapons safe, as the scrolls were the only means to gain the weapons without breaking into the Vault of Kirigakure, a feat that even she had difficulty achieving, and was one of the ways in which she got a good work-out training while she was at her current level of ability... The Sight of Yuzu-Ren was something that even the rushing Mizukage could not spend some time to address.

So, wandering through the cemetery, she would approach him

Raising a hand in a solemn hail she would approach closer, the boy had grown, looking a little older than eighteen now, but his youthful look she felt like was something he was never going to truly escape. Ayakashi remembered him as Gin's adopted child though she had some idea of whom had trained him in his many arts, one of which by her memory was the subject of her great Ire in her present state. Opening her mouth as she approached and exhaling one last time in preporation to talk, Ayakashi looked like she was ready for war. Not having her mask placed upon her belt as she normally did in her casual attire, but on her face with the reverse visor pulled down over her mouth. The hood of the Shroud of the Mizukage was up as Tobiramas armour covered her chest and sides, the tails of the Shroud falling down underneath the armoured tasset of the chestplate to look more like a ceremonial armour than a cloak.

Her hands were clad in her platinum gauntlets and the hilts of three blades could be seen on her person, one, the thunder blade named Raijin, the second, the sword of Kusanagi, the third, changeling. The two disembodied hilts of the chakra blades hung at one hip while changeling was sheathed at her side. A leather harness across her back holding her other equipment like her Sheng Biao, arrow quivver and fuma shuriken, items which the world was yet to truly see. The most of all, Ayakashi didn't look like she was a walking armoury, she looked like she was well equipped for a fight, it sat on her nicely, not encumbering her movement, she barely felt the weight of the items on her person in earnest, but so, she spoke; Yuzu Ren, the Youngest Sanin and swordsman of the mist... It's been some time boy. When I received your blades I thought you dead. Didn't expect to find you walking around the cemetery looking glum... Walk with me, I'm on my way to the border, I'm sure we have much to talk about...

She said, motioning with her head towards the exit of the graveyard. Any trial which he would have to go through to regain his blades would be hell. Nothing like what he had to go through before. He had let them go, that was a serious thing that Ayakashi would have to consider in allowing him to regain them, but, the 7 swords were not a privelage, they were a right awarded to the 7 best swordsmen in the country... Aya could not deny him the blades so long as he remained a citizen of the country...

but as Kage...

She could deny him his citizenry.

The moment he saw her, the look in his eyes became cold and calculating. It was something that his training made him do to address someone who was truly powerful as he bowed his head slightly as he was planning to see her himself.

The main reason she was identifiable was her undeniable presence and the clothing she was wearing was clearly the clothing meant for war as he knew that what was just rumors and information being passed around were of a far greater substance to them. She told him to accompany her as she made her way to the border as he followed near to her side as he blushed a bit. He did not realise how beautiful she really was before, but the blushing lasted for half a second since his mind was more interested in something far darker.

He also knew that he would need to regain his blades as he finally opened his mouth in a reply as she told him they should speak while on the way.

"Aya-ne" as he coughed, "Mizukage-sama, is it true that we are going to have to fight that man. Are we really going to war?" as he asked the most serious questions first. They both understood that the man they would have to deal with was on a level that only the Mizukage herself Ayakashi could really be expected to defeat him. If they were going to war he would need his weapons and he would need to finish the technique he had been training before. He did not have any situations in which to use most of his techniques and he also knew the only one he could really train against anymore was Aya and Gin. The reason he could never train with Dameon is because unlike Aya and Gin who were both on the level of Kage, him and Dameon were too evenly matched that a serious fight would either result in one or both of them getting killed. Not to mention they disliked each other for various reasons.

His loyalties were simple though, he did hear a rumor that someone had joined their village mysteriously. It did not sit well with him, but he was not one to pick up fights based on rumors which is why he had not been given much to do. He had no time to slack off, but for now he needed to know the thoughts of the Mizukage herself, he needed her orders and not the rumors that people spread.

"Mizukage-sama, is it true that we are going to have to fight that man. Are we really going to war?"

Ayakashi let out a laugh. "Ha! So that's the rumor is it? It figures... No, there is going to be an exercise and a confrontation with the Raikage, ending in justuce, but I hope to afford any and all hostilities if I can at all afford it. I have a plan... you needn't concern yourself. The last thing I want to do is be the Mizukage who went down in history for killing the Raikage in a time of relative peace. It's that simple. But, at the same time, I'm not stupid, he's opened hostilities so I can't be so unwise as to not take precautions when it comes to saving our people. So for now, that country is considered hostile... Is that why you returned?"

Ayakashi would ask, being somewhat straight forward as she didn't have time to spare on pleasantries. She assumed that if he were still alive he would want the blades returned to him, but there would need to be a trial, no longer having the blades meant that right now, in this moment, that he was not a seven swordsman of the mist. Yet he also had the disadvantage of having lost them in the first place.

"I suppose you would like the twin blades Kukan and Sozo returned to you... Now that you've shown me you're alive, I would assume it would have become a topic this conversation would inevitably lead to... " She spoke, drawing out the summoning scroll of the twin blades, rolling it in her fingers and looking up at Ren with cold hard eyes from underneath her mask, the blue glass which covered the eyes flickering with the blue flame of Aya's replacement.

She seemed to laugh at the notion of rumors as she brushed it off as being an exercise to confront the Raikage Sanosuke with the idea of enforcing justice. However they took no prisoners so any confrontation would either end in death or in a simple agreement as he tried thinking as she continued to speak of the Raikage giving off hostilities. Why would Sanosuke be hostile towards Kirigakure and did mom know about it as he felt he would have to meet with her to figure out what was actually going on as she asked him if that was why he had returned.

Before he could go deeper into his train of thought or reply to what she said, he heard her suggest the reason he had been coming towards this direction. He would have even headed out to her office at this time too if he did not encounter her here. He needed the twin blades in order to complete the new technique he was creating.

He watched as she pulled out the summoning scroll and even rolled her fingers in it and looked up at him with a look that seemed to send a chill down his spine, though she was a member of that clan so maybe it was just a natural reaction. He then answered her.

"Mizukage-sama, there have been bandits attempting to poison our waters. If we could hurry so I can deal with this urgent matter as well." as the look in his eyes gave the impression that he did not want them to waste too much time. Knowing how fast she was, the time she took was a bit slow. Was she being cautious of him or thinking of something.

Speed this up... the boy had been gone, thought dead for so long and he had the nerve to ask Ayakashi to speed up the process? Ayakashi had been attempting to pull her nation back together wish whatever string and debris she could manage to scramble to get a hold of as one by one her swordsman seemed to have left the country. Her cousin Strafe , one of the first, Tenmei, the second, Dameon was taken by the accursed Shikyo four who had dared to risk her nation. Then there was the matter of a radical Daimyo who had been attempting to take Ayakashi's life for the past few months. And in all of that time Yuzu Ren had been absent from the nation along with his mother, a previous Kage herself who seemed to be shirking the responsibility of the nation. Now, were the situation life and death, were it the Bijuu having been revived and clawing their way out of hell to stampede across the earth once more. The Mizukage would have felt the distraction merited.

But Bandits... attempting to poison a water supply?

The amount of toxin that a bandit troupe would require in order to deliver any meaningful harm to the village itself would be so astronimical due to the Kirigakure aqueduct system that it would be almost impossible to disguise in any form. A convoy that Ayakashi would swear would be picked up by the ANBU which scoured the nation on patrols with a fine toothed comb. Especially across a water route that was one of the main entrances and exits of the village. Momentarily the thought was so absurd, at the fact that he could not simply appoint other ninja the mission in the mean time while he spoke to the Mizukage of his Nation, made something click in the mind of the Mizukage. She was, moments ago, ready to give him a difficult task, one that would have likely taken him several days of difficult trials in order to regain his blades through an intricate mission that would have required wits, intelligence, skill as well as problem solving and above all, a strong sense of justice.

But now... The mizukage could barely contain herself.

The scroll would drop to the ground as her hand which gripped it tightly at her side would allow it to hit the cold earth, Ayakashi remaining deathly silent as she attempted to process and withhold the rage that consumed her underneath the mask. The piece of equipment altering her voice in the same way an ANBU mask would, removing the shaking of her voice, leaving her to sound cold and calculated with every word that she spoke, in a pure neutral tone. It would be immediately apparent that it was not the Mizukage's voice that was speaking, that she was relying on her mask to give the visage that she was keeping it together right now. But that image was instantly shaken should Yuzu so much as look to the adjacent hand, gripping the hilt of changeling so tightly, that were it stone, she would have crushed the carbon into diamond with the pressure. The air around Ayakashi began to chill as her chakra engaged wildly, activating the 'art of reckless release' by fact that she was no longer worried about the destruction she caused around her.

"Pick it up..."

She spoke, ordering Yuzu Ren to take the scroll, it was the last act of kindness that the Mizukage could afford him before she would lose her mind, and go completely berserk. The least she was able to do, was ensure that Yuzu Ren had 2 weapons which were strong enough to be able to defend him against the assault that was about to come.

"If you think, for a moment, that you have the right to simply appear, and then hasten me feigning concern for the people of the nation that you had been absent from for all this time. You're mistaken. I have, through blood, and sweat, and tears been holding this nation together with my own two hands, taking the weight of the archipelago's woes on my shoulders so that none had to shoulder the hardship. And I did it alone... Not with your help, nor Tenmei, nor Gin, nor Dameon, nor Strafe... not Sero, or Kaguza or Jurrou. Just me! So, if you want your trial so badly, I'll give you your damn trial... Yuzu Ren... as Mizukage of the Hidden Village of the Mist, and Acting Commander of the Seven Swordsmen of the Mist... your challenge is...

SURVIVE!"


Ayakashi remembered all the names of the people who had left, and now, that one of them had returned in a manner straying from perfect, all of the anger and hurt that she felt for all of the other's leaving would come streaming back, threatening to explode in one violent mass. Her chakra would run wild as the ground beneath her would flash into an instant expanding snowflake pattern a meter in every direction as she simultaneously activated her sage mode, as well as a basic foundation of abilities which augmented her performance, defense and the performance of her weapons. Her Sage mode would be the first to roar to life, increasing the potency of her jutsu, the lines which normally constituted the blue or red of her sage modes spirit or Body, instead a violent emerald, as she readied her incredible offence skin becoming surrounded by the Hyouton Ice corruption technique which she was known for, as well as her hand whipped for a combination of the dagger at her hip in an ice pick grip microseconds before shimmering out of existence into ephemeral invisibility, as well as drawing changeling in its sword form swinging the blade for Yuzu-Rens' neck, its blade sharpening with a fuuton wind encircling it, much like Aya's own...

It began.

Chakra Breakdown.:


Ayakashi (Boss-Mode:)

Chakra: 410 -115 = 295/410

  • Ayakashi recieves +15 chakra every turn she does not activate a jutsu (passive)
  • Ayakashi has the chakra cost of Hyouton maintenance costs reduced by -5 chakra. (item)


Passives

Name: Battle Meditation Art
Canon/Custom: Custom
Rank: A
Type:  Supplementary
Element: N/A
Range: Self
Specialty: Taijutsu / Senjutsu
Duration: Passive
Cool-down: N/A
Description:
[removes -10 chakra permanently]
This art uses trained intense focus to keep a meditative calm and composure while in combat or motion. This means that Aya, is able to meditate even in the heat of moving combat allowing her to absorb and assimilate chakra from her surroundings as is natural for a senjutsu user, so long as she does not 'activate' a chakra based ability within that turn.

The user, restoring chakra in this way, receives -5 chakra than they normally would per turn.

Name: Art of Reckless Release
Canon/Custom: Custom
Rank: A
Type: Offensive / Supplementary
Element: N/A
Range: 15m // 20m
Specialty: Taijutsu
Duration: Passive
Cool-down: N/A
Description:
[removes -10 chakra permanently]
With extra-ordinary power, comes the necessity to hold back ones strength, but that in turn allows it to be released to devastating effect. Aya, in earnest, holds back her abilities in order to not cause gigantic collateral damage to the world around her... but sometimes, against the most dangerous opponents, to hold back even a little is to invite death... this technique, is the release of those safe-guards, as aya cuts lose and disregards her surroundings with reckless abandon. Aya's punches, kicks, accelerated movement and other actions begin to have a colossal impact on the world around her, creating shock-waves, extending the range of her basic attacks and leaving ruin in wake of her movement. The waves travel at 25mp/s and can emanate from herself with a 15m radius, or 20m projection in a single direction, more than capable of ripping up the earth, creating craters, shattering trees, warping steel, breaking bones and throwing ninja great distances.

These shock-waves interact as basic attacks with anything they would come into contact with, such as jutsu / items etc.  




Jutsu

Name: Sage Mode: Nature
Canon/Custom: Custom
Rank: A
Type: Supplementary
Element: Hyouton
Range: Self
Specialty: Senjutsu
Duration: Maintainable
Cool-down: Duration +2
Description: This is one of the three sage mode forms which Ayakashi Developed in order to refine her fighting technique, by combining and merging the three chakra natures within Aya's body, giving prevalence to one of the three energies, which becomes empowered by the sacrifice of the other two. This technique can be used to replace the standard sage mode pre-requisite to the use of senjutsu skills and can be used in place of sage mode in any technique that would incorporate or require it. Only one of these three skills can be active at any one time and they all share the same cool-down.

During Sage Mode: Nature: Aya combines her three chakra natures, allowing her Nature chakra to take precedence over the three, while her body and spirit chakra merge to expand and empower this specific facet. While in this state, the markings on Aya during her sage mode become many times more violent and bright, radiating chakra from the various lines as they change to deep Emerald Greens, with brighter green on the outside... In this state; the raw power of Aya's chakra flowing through her veins is increased exponentially, removing the need to perform pre-requisite set-up for techniques which would require it, and reduces all cool-downs by -2.

Though, as a drawback, this sage mode forsakes the +1 statistic increase and the passive sensory range granted by the basic sage mode.


Name: Demon Ice Venom
Canon/Custom: Custom
Rank: A
Type: Offensive
Element: Ice
Range: Touch, Surges hit a 6 meter radius
Specialty: Taijutsu / Bukijutsu
Duration: Maintainable
Cooldown: 2x duration used.
Description:
-10 chakra per post to maintain
The user brings the strength of their Hyoton chakra to the surface of their skin. Creating a powerful imbalance of Ice chakra, able to freeze up to two inches deep and 6"wide on contact or surge the power to freeze up to a fifteen meter radius or a person solid. This ability can be channeled through weapons granting the same effects, where the surge if used through a weapon is detonated on impact normally.

Surges require -15 chakra + a turn of preparation before they can be executed and a post of cool-down before being used again, each pulse counts as an A rank jutsu against defensive techniques.

Advantages:
~Lowering body temp further increases the user’s resilience to Heat and Fire (A rank and lower fire attacks are reduced by one rank. C->D D->Resisted)
~Can be used to freeze non-organic matter as well as organic matter
~Surges are powerful attacks capable of immense damage as well as utility. able to freeze portions of an opponent within a 3 meter immediate radius right through, which impairs movement and inflict burning pain or even freeze the ground into wide slicks.

Disadvantages:
~requires physical contact
~The user begins to steam like dry ice, creating an obvious visual cue.
~maintained use has a major negative effect on the user’s immune system. (after 6 posts of maintained use the character has the potential to develop sicknesses and suffer mental fatugue, Genjutsu gain +1 when used against the user. E->D D->C C->B etc.)

~loss of control caused by a technique used to violently break the concentration of the user can cause serious bodily harm, as the mass concentration of Hyouton chakra deals C rank damage to the user making them unable to use a limb for 2 turns.

Name: Hyouton Style: Shard of True Ice
Canon/Custom: Custom
Rank: B
Type: Supplementary
Element: Hyouton.
Range: Self
Specialty: Bukijutsu
Duration: Maintainable
Cool-down: Duration x2
Description: Aya rather than channeling her chakra across the top of her weapons, infuses a weapon with the properties of crystalline ice of the purest quality, making the weapon perfectly translucent and unable to be registered by the human eye. Requiring Sensory techniques/ Doujutsu which would logically enable sight of the weapon in order to see it (Abilities which can see chakra can see this technique, while motions sensing jutsu could sense the swords movement etc as long as it was B rank or higher.). At the cost of 5 additional chakra, this effect can be spread to a second weapon.


Name: Wind Style: Chakra Blade Enhancement Technique
Canon/Custom: Custom
Rank: B
Type: Offensive/ Supplementary
Element: Fuuton
Range: 2m
Specialty: Bukijutsu
Duration: Maintainable
Cool-down: Duration +2
Description: The ninja creating a thick layer of fuuton chakra down the length of their blades enhances them for combat, empowering the basic strikes of a weapon to be able to cut an additional +2" deeper than the basic attack value of the weapon. This jutsu is capable of clashing with other 'maintainable' Tai/ bukijutsu techniques of equal rank without dispersing or the enchanted weapon receiving damage, but is easily broken by colliding with a single technique of 1 rank higher...


Name: Wind Style: Fuuton Aura Field
Canon/Custom: Custom
Rank: B
Type: Defensive
Element: Fuuton.
Range: Self
Specialty: Bukijutsu
Duration: Maintainable
Cool-down: Duration +2
Description: Aya with a single spin, opens many of her core tanketsu around her body, allowing her Fuuton chakra to flow freely from them, creating an aura of fast moving wind around herself strong enough to veer off basic attacks and throwing weapons and even a single jutsu of 1 rank higher, 2 of equal rank or 3 of 1 rank lower.

Aya was known to have good composure and a very strong will, even amongst the Kage she was considered one of the strongest people in the world. The idea of her being the absolute strongest amongst the strongest could be taken to be a fact rather easily. Which is why the mood changed as the scroll that was taken out by Ayakashi had fallen to the ground as she let it drop, this was so unlike Aya if it was not for her rather unique aura or presence you would not believe this until you realise that Aya was also known to be merciless when angered. However what could have upset Aya so much as to make her drop something so important as if its natural.

Did something happen to upset her, however the first thing he did notice undeniably was the grip she had on her sword as it was not something he would overlook easily. Then she told him to pick it up, he had been ordered before however the way she gave out the order was way different to what he was used to.
What was so dangerous that she would actually drop the sacred treasure of the twin swords summoning scroll and grip her weapon as he recognised it from a previous encounter, changeling was not really the best weapon in the world but it was rather versatile making it a bit unpredictable at times. However the twin swords may be a far superior weapon in the fact that they come as a pair instead of a single blade like most other high quality weapons. Another thing that bothered Yuzu was that he was the only dual swordsman that he knew as he began to wonder what the purpose of dropping the scroll was. However regardless of the action if he was told to pick it up it meant he needed to take the swords as the two blades appeared as he took hold of the scroll.

She started rambling on, while it sounded normal on the outside in terms of normal it had a voice without feeling, however a neutral voice did not match up to the words that were spoken. As she did mention him being absent which was to be expected as he was doing rather secretive training as well as the fact that he had to clean up a certain mess that occurred. However why was she so upset when he has returned, though she seemed hung up more on his absence then she should have.

She spoke about running everything alone, however this was not something that should have bothered her that much as some strange thought occured to him. Has Aya gotten old, or has she finally reached a point where she said no more. She was upset and seemed she felt rushed as he did not see the point in wasting too much time on a trial when there were more important things to deal with.

However the last few words she said then already made it clear to him as he prepared a technique as her words alone were enough to make it clear. He placed a seal on himself as he now took both swords and began to back away as he needed a better place to fight then a bloody cemetery. Not out of respect for the fallen warriors, but out of needing a much larger area to fight.

He had made quite a distance as she shouted the words he expected at this point, the words she was about to say that made him feel the danger was not from elsewhere since there was one truth he knew in this world. There is no one more dangerous then Ayakashi, so her holding her weapon preparing for battle could only mean one of two things however when she mentioned the trial he knew for certain. He knew running away was not an option and sadly the lake where it might be best to fight was too far away.

He took a stance in which he raised up his one sword Kukan, however he did a similar style with his other sword Sozo. He knew better then anyone he needed to expect the worst as the snowflake pattern exploded after she told him to Survive with a loud shout. As she made her way towards him a crater like breaking of the ground, this technique was powerful but was rather useless for stealth which is something he was hoping to train in soon as his chakra had gone through his chest activating his seal as a large amount of water burst forth however he did not believe this body of water would stop her assault while it can knockback shinobi and projectiles in general, this was no ordinary shinobi as his blade came down hammering down along with the water as his blade would clash with Ayakashi's Changeling followed by the dropping of his other sword as well hammering down to clash against her jutsu.

He was not going to simply allow her to attack him even if she was stronger then him, faster then him and more powerful then him. He would not shy away from a direct attack as the body of water was here to assist him in fighting back. As even in her strangely rash state she must have seen the look in his eyes as he planned to take her on. Head to head, even though running away was possible with jutsu he did not want to waste his chakra running around and having her destroy the entire village just so he can escape.

He was told to survive, but that was no reason to ignore his duties to also protect the village.

Chakra 390 - 40(2 A-rank Jutsu) -10(1 Item Technique) = 340

Item and Jutsu Technique Usage Breakdown:


Name:
Fuuinjutsu no Ichi : Mukōnisuru "First Sealing Art : Disable"
Canon/Custom: Custom
Rank: A
Type: Defensive/Offensive
Element: None
Range: 20m radius
Specialty: Fuuinjutsu
Duration: 1 post prep, 3 posts
Cooldown: 6 posts
Description: This seal must be placed by contact. The user creates a seal that requires at least one post before becoming active on an object. This jutsu activates when any chakra from a jutsu or a person other than the users comes within five or ten meters of the trap depending on the setting applied. This seal breaks in order to release the trap. This can be set off earlier by the user if deemed necessary. The range of this technique is twenty meters.

The trap releases pure chakra which disrupts any jutsu of A rank and lower other than the users own jutsu, this will always take out the highest ranking jutsu first and can disrupt up to two jutsus of A-rank or three of B-rank and prevents C-rank jutsu altogether. This occurs due to the density of the chakra when it is sealed that when released it floods the area and saturates it with the users chakra disrupting the flow of chakra other than that of the users, with the exception of S-Rank jutsu which are immune due to being dense enough to impose itself by shear force.
( Seal Placed, will be active in the next reply )

Name:

Hijutsu : Kiri Otoshi
Canon/Custom: Custom
Rank: A
Type: Defensive
Element: None
Range: 15m radius
Specialty: Bukijutsu
Duration: 2 posts
Cooldown: 6 posts
Description: The user raises their sword either to a centered position or raised overhead, the user slashes downwards with his chakra focused into his blade. The force causes a downward pull that can be felt by most enemies who will feel a gravity like pull when in fact they are being pushed downwards by chakra pressure of the technique.

Defensive Ability : The technique will block or stop any jutsu within a fifteen meter radius with it up to a maximum of 1S. if A it can be used again in the next post to block another A, the first use of the technique will block up to 2 B-Ranks, followed by 1 more B-Rank for second use.

Name: Suijinou Fuuin : Umishin (Water God King Seal : Ocean Body)
Type of Item: Body Seal
Rank: A
Elemental Alignment: Suiton
Quantity: 1
Ability/Function: This item has a large body of water sealed inside, when the seal is opened by the user by placing their hand on their chest or simply when activating a jutsu and focusing the chakra through his chest the seal opens releasing a large body of water which can knock back projectiles and shinobi up to ten meters away. The amount of water covers a ten meter radius at first and is at a height of twenty meters at first however it spreads out in the following post over a radius of 50m and ends up with a height of around 1 meter. Unless a technique is used this water will remain on the battlefield. The seal is refreshed in a new thread and can only extinguish fire of A-Rank or lower upon release.

Appearance: Unclear but this forms the background of the suijinou seal.
History: A seal that was created as a method of creating an advantageous situation at any time.

Name: Vorpal swords: Kūkan & Sōzō
Type Of Weapon: Twin Swords
Rank: S (Legendary)
Elemental Alignment: N/A
Ability/Function: The Vorpal swords are twin blades which are molecularly identical to one another to such a fine level that the chakra which is imbued within them flows freely across the gaps between them as if they were one weapon, uniting them even if they are far apart. Techniques used through one of the blades, are mimicked to the other, replicating the effects at a cost of -10 chakra per turn (in addition to the jutsu used).

However, if one technique is used on 'each' blade of differing elements and is maintained (-20 additional chakra). The visual effect of the chakra becomes black as night, and wounds/ Damage dealt by the blades or the effects cast on them cause a powerful lingering pain which reduces a ninjas speed by -1 tier and do not heal naturally. Wounds from blades in this state require B rank or higher Medical jutsu to heal from as an additional effect.

Appearance: Twin black blades which have an off feeling about them, the material they are made of is charred steel with soft patterns running across them much like pattern welded Damascus steel. The chakra which is infused within them causes the patterns to shimmer with rainbow colours, like oil when they hit the light. Each of the swords is a total of 3'4" in length with 3" wide blades at the thickest point, extending to 5.5" at the guard with about a half foot long handle.
History: Twin fire country monks came to settle in Kirigakure not a century ago, each of them were known as excellent spiritual teachers and followers of the way of peace. The twin monks fancied festivals and merry making, and were often seen demonstrating their mirror fighting style, where one of them was able to perfectly mimic the other down to the finest possible detail seemingly no matter the action.

A young man and his twin brother came under the tutelage of the two monks as idolers, though they intended to follow the way of peace, they were aspiring Genin of the Village hidden in the Mist, one with a dream to become a great hero, and the other a great smith to make their land a safe and better place.

The monks taught them their style, and how they fed their chakra between each other as they were identical, and were once one being, which allowed them to mimic each other so. And that themselves as one being with one soul and one chakra, had never truly been severed, although their bodies may have been as children in utero.

As the boys became men, and their masters long deceased, the smith of the two became a master metallurgist, the other, a master Swordsman. And together, with one making their superior weapons, and the other's superior sword skills, they made the land a safer place for everyone who they could spread their shield out and across to. And, as time repeats itself it was not long before another pair of twins came to them for the same tutelage as idolers.

The newer, younger twins had a bright set of ideals, however not long into their training one of the twins fell ill, and died not long later from a deadly fever. The other twin fell into depression and despair, having lost a friend so dear as his twin. So the blacksmith, now in his waning years, forged two blades, made from the same smelt, and the same ingot, splitting them from their original whole and imbuing them with their chakra, and telling him of the power of the swords, and reminding him. 'That you and your twin will always be of one spirit, of one mind, of one chakra... although you may not be one of body, his soul has simply returned to its home in you... so together, you can wield these swords, as one...'

Ayakashi

Ayakashi


S-rank
Yuzu Ren fled quickly to gain some ground, Ayakashi while in the Sage mode she was in was not able to sense the chakra of the seals within him, but she was able to spot the decorated lines on his body as he created them. Such symbols were not something that she was going to simply ignore. Fuuinjutsu was a powerful ability but it held a single fatal flaw, the chakra laced symbols of the techniques were the catalysts which held their intricate chakra webs together, similar to the funneled web of an ambush spider. These symbols replaced the hand-seals of ninjutsu, allowing them to be cast potentially with little more than a click of a ninja's finger, but, before they were cast, they were vulnerable things. Cutting the symbols, disfiguring the web, made it useless and no longer fit for purpose as the technique would be flawed. Of course, the technique could be botched, explode, fizzle, or any number of other results which could range from catastrophic to underwhelming.

But Ayakashi was on the hunt...

Dashing forward with her initial strike Yuzu was lucky enough to kick off and flee some distance, Ayakashi's lethal attack missing by a hair as he moved beyond the wall of the city into the immediate area beyond it. A small area of tropical forest and otherwise barren ground. Yuzu Ren would arrive moments before Ayakashi would hit him like a freight train, though he would have enough time to raise his two swords in their defensive positions. The demonic ice corruption had flown down her weapons like a toxin infusing her basic strikes, holding changeling in an ice-pick grip and striking again for his neck, moments before Aya would have made impact she would feel the power within his swords surge forward. The pressure that would overcome her forcing her and the blade she was swinging to the ground at his feet would infuriate the mizukage, but, as she saw the advantage in it, she smiled, following through with the strike directly to the ground that Yuzu-ren was standing on as the water would explode from him...

The result would be cataclysmic

The shock-wave of Ayakashi's wide swing would be, aimed at the earth, forced down by the pressure of the defensive techniques like an unnatural gravity well. But the awesome power of the projectile would slam into the earth as the water would meet it, clashing with the shockwave as it was diverted and not annulled. Creating a crater that would be almost fifteen meters deep and wide at its largest point, as well as counteracting the power of the torrenting wave that would threaten to push her away by force, the hole beneath Yuzu-ren would throw his balance off for sure, but Ayakashi was more than prepared for the dead drop. Though, not only was the hole an opportunity to drop Yuzu into a pit with her, it was a sink-hole for his water to fall into, drastically reducing its range as it fell down, coming into contact with Ayakashi's Ice venom and quickly becoming little more than natural ice compared to free moving water...

Kicking off the wall as Yuzu-ren fell, Ayakashi would dash forward with a strike from the blade of changeling, Neck Height, switching her grip on the weapon before-hand so that it was being held normally. Taking another horizontal strike at Yuzu, Ayakashi would spin in middair, aiming a second strike with her invisible blade for the dead center of Yuzu-Ren's fuuinjutsu seal that he had placed upon him, all she needed was little more than a nick in the midst of the confusion to gain the upper hand and make his use of chakra in preparing the symbol have all been for nothing. Ayakashi didn't know anything about the body seal, what it did or how powerful it was going to be when it got there, but what she did know is that he would have lost an advantage and in so much as touching him with the blade she would have done him critical damage with her demonic ice corruption...

something that he may not even be able to recover from...

The clash of techniques as the water became ice and shattered to become water in a mix of reactions that left a misty hue in the air while the water was still large enough not to completely leave the area as Ayakashi seemed to react naturally in a free fall that Yuzu was used to having had to have fights in mid air on many occasions, the drop helped him to regain the main portion of his stance as the drop allowed him to relax his arms as they returned to their raised position as Aya seemed to be using the walls of this pit in order to launch her attack with her weapon again, however things were different now and the time had finally come as the chakra was still gathered in his blades.

If Aya had been serious from the start she may have already known how his technique works. As the ability triggered as he released the second drop of the mist which hammered down upon her again as his seal broke forth dispersing chakra in the mess of the display. The Kukan and Sozo combination had definitely increased his defensive capabilities, but once his training on the mountains was done he would have a large offensive advantage as well. The seal that was known as disable was a technique he developed in order to deal with the large variety of techniques that existed, however the only weakness it had was that it generally targeted the strongest of enemy techniques regardless of his will, so it was not the best in a group fight but in a battle of small numbers it was rather useful.

Aya's technique may have been good for breaking through had it not been for the mist drop technique being involved as well as her sage mode was starting to break down in a manner unbecoming of the technique. As well as the fading of the dry ice that made it clear that those two techniques were currently the strongest techniques she had though there was one other thing with this pitfall that Aya already knew, the pitfall itself could be a trap for the both of them, but it was clear that she was not thinking about her tactics as much as she would normally have since this was a simple brute force attack. Though deep down he knew she could use even more power then this if he gave her enough time or if she was thinking straight.

Also she used a technique that would have been more powerful had she used it in a more open area as her blade seemed to be or at least one of her weapons seemed invisible as a clash of water and minor left over shards was seen appearing from Aya's other arm as his technique was the only thing that kept her from closing that gap like she normally would. The clash was intense, but he knew now was not the time to relax, now was his only opening to attack.

She would probably know very well what this technique would entail, but he rarely used it under normal circumstances and he knew very well she would not simply stay in this pit and take the technique or would she as he spat water out as it swarmed within the short size of this pit she would have little time to react to the swarm of water and it was also one of the few jutsu that were not dependant on hand seals which is why it was so suited to him. She knew this technique well as the strongest water technique one could learn in the library, the s-rank water technique that demanded ones respect as the water gushed forth with tremendous force as water gushed out of the pit and across the land creating a small lake with water that far exceeded that of his previous seal while having a destructive force that mainly knocked out opponents, though would it knock some sense into Aya and she had some other techniques up her sleeve didn't she, however upon the water pushing forth he would be using this water for something far greater then launching an attack as he backed out of his own pit in order to prepare a large scale attack. In order for him to attack he would need to secure that she was disabled and if she was he would attack her on his next chance and disable her. The option of running away from Aya was something only foolish shinobi would try, you either disable her, hold her back long enough for her to let you go, or you kill her. There were no other options when dealing with Ayakashi the Ice Witch.

Chakra 340 - 40 = 300

10 for maintaining kukan and sozo effect
30 for activating S-rank jutsu

S-Rank Jutsu Used:

Name: Water Release: Exploding Water Colliding Wave
(水遁・爆水衝波 --Suiton: Bakusui Shōha)
Canon/Custom: Canon
Rank: B-S Rank
Type: Offensive, Supplementary
Element: Suiton
Range: B: 15 m radius, A: 30 m radius, S: 50 m radius
Specialty: Ninjutsu
Duration: Water stays on battlefield for 6 posts, stunning only lasts 1-2 posts
Cooldown: May be used again after it wears off (6 posts)
Description: The user spits an abundance of water from their mouth. Depending on the rank of the technique used, the amount of water differs - 15 m radius at B rank, 30 m radius at A rank, and 50 m radius at S rank. The rank being used needs to be specified in the post where this technique is activated. The body of water is approximately 10 meters deep. The water travels at 25 m/s at B rank, 35 m/s at A rank, and 45 m/s at S rank, and decreases 5 m/s in speed for every 10 meters it travels. This is primarily used to give the user an advantage by providing lots of water for their other jutsu, but it can also be used to knock to opponent over with a wave, stunning them for 1 post if the wave is B-Rank, and 2 posts if the wave is A-rank or higher. This stun only takes effect if the opponent hit by the wave is within 10 meters of the user, when the wave still has plenty of force.

Ayakashi

Ayakashi


S-rank
Ayakashi chargesd with all of her might and speed, moments away from cutting deep into the skin of Yuzu Ren with her blade before she noticed the swell of chakra that came from her opponent, not in the sense of a sensory technique, but the feeling of chakra that the perceptive gained naturally when a powerful technique was about to be used. Ayakashi could hear him breath in amongst the chaos. When the aura of chakra hit her, she could feel her own temperature begin to fade, and the aura enchantment on her blades as well as her defensive technique were instantaneously broken, returning them to normal... Ayakashi scowled at the fact that she had been too slow in her action, mere moments from striking his side... But something else was coming now, as she heard her opponent inhale in such a way that she knew that something else would be coming...

The Mizukage was ready.

She didn't know the technique he was about to unleash, but she knew that it was going to be something to do with his mouth... the simple fact of the matter was, Ayakashi was too close to do much about it, so, rather than abort her action, she was about to rely on her natural defenses... She could feel the power of her ice slip away form her body, it was gone, her demonic ice corruption had been withdrawn in its full capacity. As Yuzu ren breathed in for the attack, Ayakashi would have passed him by, cutting once into his side with her blade barely a sixth of an inch deep, the cut that would have been intended for his body seal too late to seal her objective as she planter her position on the other side of the wall and awaited his attack... Ayakashi sheathing changeling in its leather and steel hilt as she would await his next move... planting her feet in the ditch and looking up at Yuzu Ren with fire in her eyes...

Ayakashi's initial plan would have ended him, he had forgotten her abilities, her initial goal was to fill this crater with the power of her ice, freezing everything within fifty meters of herself and forcing Yuzu ren into having to escape the obstacle in order to survive... Ayakashi had gone berserk for a moment, but the chase and the fact that he was able to push back her maintained abilities somewhat snapped her out of her volatile state, but not out of her anger and decision to give Yuzu Ren the ultimate trial by fire... As the water exploded from Yuzu's mouth, Ayakashi would recognize the technique for what it was, and smile as her plan would have come to fruition, the wave would have crashed within the basin that they were trapped in, filling it instantly as Ayakashi would have disappeared from view and sense immediately as the water should have overcame her... But the effect could not have been further from the truth... as the offensive foreign chakra collided with Ayakashi's form, she was not overwhelmed, a single pulse of fuuton and senjutsu chakra would have blasted out from her, reflecting the wave back at its opponent as he continued to spill chakra from his lips, detonating the wave on itself just long enough for Ayakashi's counterattack...

Black chakra surrounded her blade in its sheath as she would release it in a one hundred and eighty degree wave of seemingly black and purple flame, a confusing sight to see as her nature had always been ice... The two meters thick strip of pure hyouton chakra below zero degrees calvin shredded all matter that came into contact with the foul black and volatile energy with a horrifying sound. The water around the technique would freeze at the touch of the purple lining into little more than a solid statue of ice, while whatever deigned to touch the black chakra within the heart of blue flame, would find itself beyond the bounds of existence, lost forever. Yuzu had deemed to use a crushing nigh unstoppable wave to finish Ayakashi in an offensive bid to halt her assault, and now he was far too close for comfort himself... Much of the waves and the water he would have spilled out, would be frozen solid in a spectacular upward splashing pattern as free water that had been within any proximity of the attack would fall to the ground as hail...

Leaping free of the crater she had created after her assault, Ayakashi would look to analyze the damage that had been dealt, scanning the horizon for her target to see if he could have survived the attack... had he... she would be surprised, but not to the point that she was about to let him off the hook from this test... this was but a glance at the power of the Mizukage, she had barely scratched the surface of her might. The heart of true flame was a powerful jutsu to be sure, but, unlike many of her techniques, it was powerful on its own merits, it did not synchronize with her fighting style like many of her other skills, but soon he would begin to see just what a Kage was capable of... Soon...

Should he rear his head...

Name: Senjutsu Conversion Technique
Canon/Custom: Custom
Rank: E
Type: Supplementary
Element: N/A
Range: N/A
Specialty: Senjutsu
Duration: Instant
Cool-down: 2
Description: (costs -10 chakra.)
Not a technique but rather the process of incorporating the unique Senjutsu nature chakra into a technique which does not include it during its inception. Through the user being in Sage mode, with expert control they infuse a technique with nature chakra granting it all the benefits of being a Senjutsu technique but increasing its cool-down by +1. While this technique is not as efficient as creating specific senjutsu techniques due to its higher chakra cost, it is useful in a pinch. (The chakra cost of this jutsu 'is' the increased chakra cost of a Senjutsu technique)

Name: Wind Style: Reflect barrier Technique
Canon/Custom: Custom
Rank: B
Type: Defensive
Element: Fuuton
Range: 1m
Specialty: Taijutsu
Duration: 1
Cool-down: 4
Description: Aya, channeling Fuuton through her arms or legs creates an outward pulse of Fuuton chakra which pushes to reflect/ bounce back a single jutsu of up to one rank higher in any chosen direction without altering any of its inherent properties. The pulse on impact with the reflected chakra expands in a concave 1m radius from the point of impact, covering protecting Aya from the effects of the jutsu.

Name: Hyouton Style: Heart of Blue Flame
Canon/Custom: Custom
Rank: S
Type: Offensive
Element: Hyouton.
Range: 30m
Specialty: Bukijutsu OR Buki / Senjutsu
Duration: 1-2 or 3
Cool-down: 6
Description: Aya using the full power of her Hyouton imbalance creates a singularity of pure Yin chakra incarnated in her Hyouton. Drawing the blade in a single strike launches a 2" thick projectile 45 degree arc of void-like black-with-purple almost fire like energy edging it at 65mp/s which freezes everything it comes into contact with before the intense cold rips the substance to pieces on a near atomic level, making it seem to detonate, turning all it touches into a crystalline dust and shrapnel due to the frigid temperatures and blue fire which feels hot to the touch and can cause 4th degree frost burns.

This technique can be channeled with an additional -10 chakra per turn for up to 2 extra turns so long as it is not used in order to increase its range and area. After the first turn of sustaining the technique, release increases the thickness of the wave to 1m and its maximum arc to 180 degrees. Finally after a second turn the arc increases to 2m in width and has a maximum arc of 270 degrees. (While this technique is being channeled, the user cannot activate other techniques or move past the base movement speed for their speed tier, least it break their concentration.)

Yuzu understood that she could deal with this technique and he had hoped this would put an end to the battle since as powerful as she was a direct hit from this range would be enough to settle things peacefully. However it was a lost cause as from the time he had first trained to get his twin swords, to the times he allied with her in battle against the monster that threatened to destroy their village which for as powerful a nation as it was seemed to be targeted by quite a large number of wars. This made you wonder if it was because of the political standings or if someone from the inside had been leaking information. He thought of his mother at times, but felt she could do no wrong even though his instincts told him that the situation was far more complicated then he could ever dream of understanding.

The wave was moving perfectly behind him, but the front had some massive resistance as the sound of waves crashing against each other told him that things were not looking good. What was she using, was she using a water jutsu of her own, even though he felt confident he was the strongest suiton user in the village as a member of the Aisu clan could she not have used the same jutsu to cause them to clash, however the amount of water did not seem to increase at all or to the best of his knowledge it did not seem anymore then usual.

The waters that were crashing from a dark blue to a mix of white and then all of a sudden the waters seemed to be turning black and not wanting to take any chances Yuzu used his technique. He was not sure what the technique was, but at the very least he knew he had no time to think about it as he used the fastest defence he had.

A small sphere like lightning shield barrier formed around him as there was a massive icy explosion to the front as some water settled on the back and shattered ice fell in front of Yuzu. Had it been anyone else they probably would have been dead right then and there as this was no ordinary ice technique. To the best of his knowledge he knew she could not use any other elements and if she had used a form of high ranking wind technique in her offense he would have probably suffered though the waters would have given him time to react to that though all he could do was react. He knew she had weaknesses, but he never expected her to use something this powerful as his lightning barrier seemed to be cracking from the impact, though it was more his imagination as the barrier was rather powerful especially against her ice techniques.

Shards of ice seemed to fall down as it occurred to him he took the correct choice of action as he had no time to think on that any further. The remaining water gathered towards him as he focused to do what he needed to do from the start, and that was to not let her play around with him since this might be more dangerous then bringing the fight to her. He had sheathed his blades during that mess and formed the jin seal before clapping his hands. While it was good to apply his ultimate defence, what good was it without unleashing another powerful attack of his own. Water gushed forth again as the rocks were burst apart as he sent the waves towards her, two separate waves with one straight at her as he focused on swirling the other wave to her left flank.

He had a strange hue about him and his clothes looked rather damp as well. He also was known for having some absurd ninjutsu techniques. He had performed not one, but two first class techniques as if the library did not have good enough jutsu as it is. The speed of the waves were faster then any normal shinobi could ever dream of avoiding not counting that he could redirect both waves towards Ayakashi as right now having his weapons out would simply be a waste of time. That and their weapons were too evenly matched for it to be useful in deciding anything. If he attacked with twin blades she could counter with two weapons of her own. It also seemed their weapons were more for distraction or ending battles then being used to actually win a fight. At least until he trained his new techniques.

Chakra = 300 - 30(S-rank Jutsu) - 25(A-rank Jutsu) = 245

Jutsu Used:

Name: Water Release: Armor of Water
Suiton: Mizu no Yoroi
Canon/Custom: Custom
Rank: S
Type: Defensive
Element: Suiton
Range: Self
Specialty: Ninjutsu
Duration: 4 posts, maintainable(10 chakra)
Cooldown: 8+ posts
Description: The user infuses chakra into water that attaches itself to the surface of their skin and clothing protecting the user from damage as the water like chakra absorbs the force and dissipates it to deal no damage. This defence is unaffected by anything B-Rank and below and can block up to 3 A-Rank jutsu or 2 S-Rank jutsu, this jutsu is unaffected by Katon that is A-rank and below.

Basic hand to hand strikes with a strength lower than A-rank have no effect on this armor. The absorption also helps against projectiles slowing them down and removing most of their force, however arrows will still pierce half an inch if B-Rank and an inch if A-Rank. Direct hits will not cause the user to flinch as the water absorbs the force, however the user can still be knocked back by A-Rank hits while B-Rank hits can still be enough to slow down or hinder user's movement.

This jutsu requires a water source to activate

Posts during which there are no water sources do not count towards the cooldown of this jutsu

Name: 水遁・水衝波 {Suiton: Suishōha ~ Water Release: Water Shockwave}
Canon/Custom: Canon.
Rank: A.
Type: Offensive.
Element: Suiton.
Range: Tornado width of 15m refers to vortex. 1 acre ft of water. 50m wave control. 100m maximum water dispersion.
Specialty: Ninjutsu.
Duration: 6 posts. Can control for 2 post after, -10 to control for extra post
Cooldown:can be used again 4 posts after is meant to end(If ended early the cd only ends on when the jutsu would have ended plus four posts which is 10 posts)
Description: After making the Jin seal, the user claps and holds both hands together. An enormous amount of water is created from the surrounding vapor, equal to 1 acre ft. Upon activation, the water swirls in a tall vortex around the user. The aggregated water explodes out the top of the vortex in a huge wave. The user can effortlessly control the direction of the water and maintain the waves using simple hand motions; this can extinguish S-rank Katon. Half the water evaporates. Two A-rank Katons can achieve the same effect. After that B-rank Katon is required to evaporate the rest.

The water's concussive force can easily wash away individuals, causing major internal bleeding and bruising, and perhaps broken bones; the target may be stunned and unable to do anything more than flounder in the water for the first post it's unleashed if caught in the waves. The water covers the area for up to six posts. The initial wave can stun a user for 1 post when hit within 20 meters of the user. Waves move at 50m/s. Those outside of this range will only be stunned for 1 post if taking a direct hit from the front. Waves in the second and third posts can only stun from direct hits to the front, but may stun from the side if within 15 meters of the user. After the third post the water slowly drops in height and returns to the earth or evaporates over time eventually fading on the sixth post, the waves are not controlled after the third post as it settles. The maximum range of wave movement is 50m from the user, the water may be spread out further or unevenly due to terrain therefor the effective range is 50m while the jutsus water distribution range can reach up to 100m

NB - if we need to discuss how I dealt with the interaction please pm me as I was busy taking note of how the wind defence works and seems you described it already. You reflect the jutsu on itself to cancel it out in other words. Anyways please PM if you have any questions, he currently has his Offensive jutsu homing in on Ayakashi and his defensive jutsu is up to defend himself ofcourse

Ayakashi

Ayakashi


S-rank
Theme:


Ayakashi after unleashing the wave of void black chakra through the roof of his waves, she would charge through the glacier that she had created, ice like dust raining down around her as the pale black comet that was the mizukage would leap through the hole that was left behind, not a single drop of water from his techniques had hit the ground after the wave she had launched, all frozen into permafrost instantly by the cataclismic power of her techniques. Ayakashi, would flow some chakra into her fuuma shuriken, preparing her susbstitutuion with the last amount of blindness that she could be afforded by her veritable white out. Though, it had seemed that Yuzu himself had the time he had needed to prepare also, Ayakashi could feel the chakra radiating from him as something was about to sprout forth, he made the jin hand-sign, and immediately a list of techniques would come to ayakashi's mind. She was the leader of a nation of suiton masters, and a member of a clan famed for their use of suiton as ice release...

There was little that began with this hand-sign that would surprise her.

Yuzu ren had quickly proven to her with his abilities that he had mastered the basics of suiton to such a level that he was able to accomplish these techniques. Though she thought it perhaps important that he move onto something a touch more formidable. It was time for the Demon ice witch to show her student the power that could stem from ones techniques should they prepare them right... And so, she created the singularity in her right fist... Such an obsurd amount of chakra she would well within it, that the ground at her feet would continue to spread its frost as she attempted to close the gap between them. Coming out of the mouth of the cave she had made through his former tidal-wave, Ayakashi would watch as the watercyclone would explode from around himself, Launching two waves for Ayakashi at such speeds that they tore up the landscape, threatening to overwhelm everything in her path. One of them came head on, while the other arced for her side to hit her simultaneously.

Something here had to give...

Ayakashi dashed forward for the epicenter of the two waves as they would begin to collide with one another, her fist coiled as at the final moment she would launch it forward for the oncoming technique. Letting out a roar as the epicenter of her punch would create a five meter crater from the shockwave of the blow into the mouth of the tsunami that threatened to crush every bone in her body, but rather than the waves crashing down on the Mizukage, the shockwave of her punch washed over the waves, flash freezing them in motion as they would shatter from the shock-wave of her 'art of the reckless.' The mizukage, in a feat of strength and chakra control literally tearing through a tidal wave with her fist without losing momentum while the second tsunami that had been thrust in her direction would be little more than a crumbling sculpture of its former self. Ayakashi's eyes were now locked on Yuzu-ren, the show of jutsu power at this point the Mizukage felt was over, it was time to see if he could hold his own in a bout of blades against the demon he was standing against. Yuzu-Ren, talented as he was, had always been the child of the 7 Swordsman...

Aya needed to know if he'd grown.

The wedding band still in one hand with her loyal blade changeling in the other she would charge down her adversary with deadly precision. Twenty five meters from her opponent Ayakashi would vanish unless Yuzu would have the capacity to track her insane burst of movement as she would apply the basic tennants of the body flicker technique to appear little more than a few meters away from the body, still in motion and bringing changeling diagonally down for the bridge between his shoulder and the base of his neck, using the length of her arms as an advantage to cut with only the end quarter of her over meter long blade. Ayakashi had the range advantage, and she wanted Yuzu ren to know it in this instance, she wanted him to know each and every move that she made was deliberate, though it seemed that now that they were in close combat to one another, the 'art of reckless release' that Ayakashi had been holding up until now, seemed to have ceased. She didn't want every one of her swings having the potential of blowing away the earth they were standing on after all...

After the first blow, it was all on Yuzu... would he counter, or would he avoid yet again?

Name: Senjutsu Conversion Technique /(coupled with fist of Yuki oni.)
Canon/Custom: Custom
Rank: E
Type: Supplementary
Element: N/A
Range: N/A
Specialty: Senjutsu
Duration: Instant
Cool-down: 2 (-2 from sage mode, so, 0)
Description: (costs -10 chakra.)
Not a technique but rather the process of incorporating the unique Senjutsu nature chakra into a technique which does not include it during its inception. Through the user being in Sage mode, with expert control they infuse a technique with nature chakra granting it all the benefits of being a Senjutsu technique but increasing its cool-down by +1. While this technique is not as efficient as creating specific senjutsu techniques due to its higher chakra cost, it is useful in a pinch. (The chakra cost of this jutsu 'is' the increased chakra cost of a Senjutsu technique)

Name: Fist of the Yukki-Oni
Canon/Custom: Custom
Rank: S
Type: Offensive
Element: Ice
Range: 40 meter
Specialty: Taijutsu
Duration: 1 post
Cooldown: 10 posts
Description:

A massive sum of Hyoton & Demon ice power is stored in the right arm of the user and is driven into the ground with colossal force, capable of creating a five meter radius crater as the energy is released. The result is a ripple which blasts out as a dome-like a sound wave, capable freezing every living thing within the radius for 3 turns, during which those frozen are prone to shattering, but are very much alive and preserved.

Name: Combat Shunpo
Canon/Custom: Custom
Rank: A
Type: Supplementary
Element: N/A
Range: 25m
Specialty: Taijutsu
Duration: 1
Cool-down: 4
Description: A ninja trained in this technique, on defensive reflex alone is able to move from point A to point B near instantly, though processes similar to the Body-flicker technique. However, through higher levels of chakra control, and through shorter range, the user is able to use the technique in conflict. Requiring the user to pick and state a location within range in a straight line the ninja moves to that location almost faster than the eye can see. creating a concussive 1m radius blast of force when they arrive at their location, capable of knocking a ninja back but dealing no damage beyond light bruising. A ninja using this technique cannot attack en route to their location, high speeds making any attempt at movement or striking impossible however, upon appearing they are able to follow up with techniques normally. (A ninja seeing this can perceive the user's movement with S rank perception.)

13Kukan and Sozo(Ayakashi/7th Swordsman Plot) Empty Re: Kukan and Sozo(Ayakashi/7th Swordsman Plot) on Tue Dec 06, 2016 10:36 am

He was preparing his assault as he then saw something he did not expect so soon until he realised it was something else as he thought she had an absurd and insane amount of chakra to throw so many bombs as he would call them in his mind. Even though he pretty much was doing the same thing as a battle of ice, mist, thunder and raging oceans seemed to rage across the battle field as they had already changed much of the landscape.

Meanwhile on one of the outposts watching over the battle three shinobi were fearing for their lives just being out of range of this monumental battle. "Sensei, I thought you said this outpost was okay for chuunin to work at" as the old man was sweating as the other chuunin was cradling himself as he was mumbling that they were all going to die and that the world was going to end as the man sighed. "Seriously, get used to this already. If you ever seen that kid in the training grounds and wondered why we have so many lakes there you can see that right there, as for the ice... you are a bit too young to be seeing so much devastation I can not clearly tell but there could be three maybe four or more jounin level members of the Aisu clan battling there so it might be a good idea we just sit here and do our job and report to the Mizukage that a bunch of members from the Aisu clan are fighting one of our swordsman probably. I am getting too old for this, what happened to the other jounin of the past seriously I want to retire already but kids like you keep wetting themselves just cause a few high ranking shinobi start making a few attacks to change the shape of the world."

Ayakashi dashed to the epicentre of the two waves location as if she had planned for them to crash but he had control he was going to side wind the waves and change their direction at the last second, but then Aya went and did something rather annoying as if she did not even respect giving time for people to really form tactics. This brute force style was similar to his mother in certain aspects that it was not as much an exercise of tactic as it was a display of her superior prowess.

What was it with woman and just breaking jutsu apart with such finess as he was really annoyed more then shocked at what she did as he was sweating since he just used two of his strongest offensive techniques and wondered if she was a bottomless mountain of chakra. He could not lose his resolve here as his eyes finally switched to a cold look in them as he was annoyed as he drew his strongest weapon. A long blade he held with both hands as the water around him also expanded as he raised it up in a stance as a portion of the water on him had formed a giant electric eel along with a second one hidden in it as it rotated around him. Though there appeared to be more to this eel as he knew one thing. With swords alone he would not be able to take her on since his strong point was not physical strength as far as fighting the mizukage was concerned.

New Yuzu Theme

His technique rotated above him as some water seemed to also be moving inside of the large electric eel. It almost seemed like she would vanish at the speed she dashed towards him as the giant electric eel was above him as he slashed forwards towards her blade having seen her destination and movement, however it was not a simple attack as the electric eel seemed to cover the area as well as two smaller eels breaking from the larger eel with an eel of water reaching out and gripping for her left arm and an eel of water gripping for her right arm, while the larger eel seemed to be rotating ferociously in order to prevent Aya from launching any attacks on him while the truth was a bit clear as electricity flowed through both water eels, as he had this strange glaring gleam in his eye of defiance as if to say to the Mizukage she shall not pass as he would strike straight down on her mask as well as preventing any further jutsu as he used the first secret art, the true form of the mist drop sword technique.

How would she react to this combination of techniques as he had hoped not to be revealing the Dai Denki Unagi but from a distance no one could tell what was happening as people had already been told to evacuate the outskirts of that area which left multiple animals and a few stray bandits dead in the crossfire as was expected of a battle that was on the level of Kage and Sannin. As if it were a battle of the Gods.

Chakra 245 - 25(A-rank defensive) - 30(B-rank defensive and supplementary offensive) - 30(B-rank defensive and supplementary offensive) = 160

Range: 15m radius
Specialty: Bukijutsu
Duration: 2 posts
Cooldown: 6 posts
Description: The user raises their sword either to a centered position or raised overhead, the user slashes downwards with his chakra focused into his blade. The force causes a downward pull that can be felt by most enemies who will feel a gravity like pull when in fact they are being pushed downwards by chakra pressure of the technique.

Defensive Ability : The technique will block or stop any jutsu within a fifteen meter radius with it up to a maximum of 1S. if A it can be used again in the next post to block another A, the first use of the technique will block up to 2 B-Ranks, followed by 1 more B-Rank for second use.

Canon/Custom: Custom
Rank: B
Type: Offensive/Defensive/Supplementary
Element: Suiton
Range: 50m
Specialty: Ninjutsu
Duration: 4 + 4 posts
Cooldown: 8 + 4 posts
Description: The user imbues water with his chakra or takes water already imbued with his chakra to create one large water eel or two small water eels. Depending on the amount of chakra used and number of eels made effects the jutsu since the water eels also have different properties dependent on the water used. It costs ten more chakra to create another eel.

Small eel can not defend, large eel can not attack

Large Water Eel: This eel possesses a large body and will stop ordinary physical attacks and block up to 1 A-Rank or 2 B-Rank jutsu or 1 B and 2 C's. This eel is immune to all jutsu D-Rank and lower. This eels body is roughly two meters in radius moves at around fifteen meters per second but stays wrapped around the user in general as a defensive measure. This eel will never be more than ten meters from the user.

Small Water Eel This eel possesses a small body but has a strong grip strength as it moves at around 35m/s and this jutsu does not interact with defensive jutsu and has no damage. The eel reaches out and is a radius of one and a half meters but due to its homing nature once it touches the target they become bound to their location for one post. The opponent can break free by using an A-rank offensive jutsu on the eel.

TWO SMALL

Name: Raiton : Denki Unagi "Lightning Release : Electric Eel"
Canon/Custom: Custom
Rank: B
Type: Offensive/Supplementary/Defensive
Element: Raiton
Range: 25+ m
Specialty: Ninjutsu
Duration: 4 + 4 posts
Cooldown: 8 + 4 posts
Description: The user charges electricity through his body in nearly an instant as lightning chakra takes on the form of one or two electric eels. Depending on the amount of chakra used and number of eels made effects the jutsu since the electric eels also have different properties dependent on the situation it is used. It costs ten more chakra to create another eel. This jutsu also has a unique alteration when applied to water imbued with chakra.

Small eel can not defend, large eel can not attack

Large Electric Eel: This eel possesses a large body and will stop ordinary physical attacks and block up to 1 A-Rank or 2 B-Rank jutsu or 1 B and 2 C's. This eel is immune to all jutsu D-Rank and lower. This eels body is roughly two meters in radius moves at around twenty five meters per second, but stays wrapped around the user in general as a defensive measure. This eel will never be more than ten meters from the user.

Small Electric Eel This eel possesses a small body but has a strong shocking effect as it moves at around 35m/s and this jutsu causes the enemy to suffer third degree burns. The eel reaches out and is a radius of one and a half meters but due to its homing nature once it touches the target they become electrocuted and continue to take damage for three posts unless they use a medical jutsu that can remove the electricity. The opponent can use a jutsu of the same rank to block this technique. This technique may have its direction altered by the user as well and while its range is normally shorter in the water this eel thrives and only damages the target if it does not have the same chakra signature as the owner.

Water imbued with chakra effects: When used on a water surface imbued with the user's chakra the range of the eel is increased by the area covered by this water which includes other jutsu up to a maximum of 50m

When applying the defensive snake to a water jutsu it wraps around the water if  and causes a static discharge causing 2nd degree burns and protecting the imbued water jutsu instead of the user.

When combined with the water eel jutsu it is known as the Great Electric Eel "Dai Denki Unagi"

TWO LARGE


Water Armor is still active as well

Ayakashi

Ayakashi


S-rank
The veritable Tsunamis that Ayakashi had lashed out at with her chakra crumbled as little more than hail under the force of her blow, each of them had been powerful bone crushing techniques, and it would seem to those watching that the power of the ice users here seemed to be absolute. Water was not something that Ayakashi was going to get forced back by... With her target in sight, she would make a mad dash for him, weapon in hand as she would continue her rampage to finish off what she had started. The emotion from her attacks had run dry as the frozen shoals around them, cracking and splintering under the sheer pressure of the battle that continued to wage. Many would think Ayakashi as weakening, but little could be further from the truth, while this was a match that was going to end with her loss, Ayakashi had trained in the sage arts for too long to simply run out of chakra... But this was a test, to see if Yuzu ren was worthy of returning to his station, and for that matter, Ayakashi could not fight this fight smartly. She needed to put him under as much pressure as possible in a small amount of time under the guise of her being berserk. She knew that should he have up-kept his training that Yuzu Ren of all people should be able to keep up with her movements better than most...

And she had been right so far.

Though the techniques that he had used to this point had been largely standard water techniques of the highest caliber as well as a few impressive pressure techniques... Yuzu had yet to show off anything particularly flashy using his ninjutsu. To Aya, this put not only his skill, but his creativity into question. Yuzu ren was fighting like his techniques alone would be able to stop her, there had been no trap, no afterthought, no combination that had really surprised the Mizukage enough to allow her to so much as take damage yet alone be in a position of threat. It was like fighting a child, warding a bandit off with a sword... The sword may be sharp, but he was just swinging wildly hoping that the sword would do all of the work for him. This was not the way of the ninja, it was the way of a mystic. Were it any other scenario Ayakashi would show him the error of his ways, employing a sure-fire strategy to show him his folly... but there was no lesson to be taught here today, only the cold fire burning in Ayakashi's eye would see that what justice that needed to be done, would be done.

Then they came.

Electricity and water expanded from Yuzu in the form of several long eels that would lurch forward in an attempt to grab at Ayakashi's arms and restrain her from attack, all the while Yuzu-ren would raise his weapon up in an attempt to bring it down once again with the mist drop technique, the same one which had been used to pull Ayakashi's basic strike into the ground at his feet before. But it wasn't going to happen a second time. Ayakashi would take another step inwards, feeling the chakra building up in her core as she would barely need to prepare this technique. Yuzu's arm would be extended above his head to bring the blade down on his opponent and push her into the ground as the snakes would be a meter from her when she acted. The fact of the matter was, that at their speed of twenty five meters per second, they only had just over two thirds of Ayakashi's speed. The Mizukage was a blitz in comparison to the eels and with the reaction time to keep up with herself and operate at maximum capacity yet alone this technique. As soon as they were upon her, aiming for her arms at either side of her body... Ayakashi would spring into action.

Beginning to twist, Ayakashi would side-step the two eels entering a spin as she would move to slip in between them with enough speed that they would not be able to intercept unless they had already planned to. However, the game didn't end there, Ayakashi had seen the technique that was about to come down on her before, and was not blind to the third eel protecting its master, so, instead, her spin between the eels was simply a matter to get as close as she feasibly could before performing a technique that was usually only seen in the lands of Konoha... The chakra in Ayakashi's core reached its zenith, creating a chain reaction as Zero degrees Calvin would exist in the natural world for but a fraction of a second. Physics would buckle at the reaction and particles would cease moving as the electrons within them would be frozen in place for but a moment. The fallout would be a black pulse as even light would be unable to penetrate the expanding dome of ensuing cold as Ayakashi would then use her control, releasing chakra from her tenketsu and turning, pulling what could potentially be an ever-expanding reaction into a confined rotation of black chakra. The force of which would guard against the Eels and strike Yuzu back fifteen meters, aimed in such a manner that he would be thrown into a tree behind him. The water eel of his techniques, should it have come into contact with the wave, rendered frozen and unusable.

But such was only the beginning.

Using the intense spin force of her rotation, she would reach behind her, gripping the Fuma-Shuriken that lay there tightly with her gauntleted hand flowing even more chakra into the fuuton aligned weapon. As soon as her rotation crumbled and the fallout expelled in every direction, she would let the weapon fly as a discuss horizontally for the center of Yuzu-rens' stomach. The weapon folding out as it would begin to fly, spinning with all the strength and force of Ayakashi's rotating technique, allowing it to be spun and thrown as hard and fast as humanly possible for a ninja of Ayakashi's rank, timing the blow to intercept him bouncing back off the tree should he hit it. The force of the throw would have ayakashi fall to one knee to stabilize herself and prevent her cycle as she would watch for the impact of the weapon, waiting to see what Yuzu Ren would do should the blade hope to find its mark. The hand that she had thrown the weapon with, poised behind her back, hidden from view as even the Mizukage, never-known to use ninjutsu prepared one of the few hand-signs that she knew in order for what was to come...

15Kukan and Sozo(Ayakashi/7th Swordsman Plot) Empty Re: Kukan and Sozo(Ayakashi/7th Swordsman Plot) on Sun Mar 12, 2017 10:37 am

***Yuzu Recap***
Long ago there was a small young diligent, yet foolish boy. Considered a genius within the academy and having done well in his attempts to become a true shinobi of the hidden mist, he had underwent many trials. Not long after it began, the war had drawn close and there was no time for further training as all shinobi had to gear up for the tides of war. In the beginning he had only done basic missions to help with basic academy training and collecting resources, little did he know how important this would be in the time to come.

He had been talented with the mastery of the hidden mist jutsu as well as the water clone technique. This was nothing new, even later when he trained his trump card the water prison technique it was clear he was nowhere near to a level where he would be useful.

The war began and his first mission was to assist in rooting out spies, he met with Keiko and Dameon two future elites within the village itself. They were both chuunin and along with Rinao they had set out on the mission, while useful Yuzu had been rash having no real offense of his own he simply became a distraction. Keiko having some level of cold experience dealt with it easily, however Dameon showed off his lightning which inspired Yuzu to also master the art. At the time Keiko so him as simply a nuisance and never wanted children of her own for this reason and Dameon who naturally hated kids would continue to carry a grudge against this wild child. Whether it mattered much, Ren came to realise that nearly everyone he met would disappear. As Rinao who had planned to go on another mission together with him some time, simply vanished and is either presumed missing or dead. Was this the fate of all shinobi and after being shown such cruel emotions from those two he had turned a bit colder himself. This short lecture and scolding by the two made him put more thought into his battles, but at the same time drove him to be more ambitious.

He later met the infamous Sora who was armed with so many throwing knives and had this crazy habit of just charging in even more then he did, it was then that Yuzu became certain of it, he would never again charge in without being better prepared for the counter attack.

Yuzu was really confident in his ability to use water jutsu and learn them for that matter, until the day he met a member of the Hozuki clan, and when he noticed all his water jutsu were being countered by a similar water user he began to realise his skills in water jutsu were at best just basic and ordinary.

He was struggling to get stronger and found it hard to train. He just had no idea what to do, even reading the books was not good enough as he ventured into the monument grounds one day and was approached by a strange girl with mysterious eyes. Kamikira Shiru, a girl who trained and helped to look after the small boy in his battle for survival in the war. Training him to use unusual weapons as well as teaching him the cold doctrine that she bared. Her role was one he did not understand then and would only come to learn later. She had trained him to better use his weapons. She one day got this really cool looking cloak as she helped him survive a really tough mission in which he nearly died, however when he awoke from the hospital he never found her again. Later he got the news of her death and received her cloak as a memento of his first sensei outside of the academy.

Yuzu then encountered something he never could have imagined, entering a mission he unexpectedly was in danger once again and that was when he saw the true power of a shinobi. The Super Soldier was no match for the Super Shinobi the boy later came to know as Nanashi, a shinobi from the hidden village of the rock. He had not really known much about them but for a moment thought that man might be their Kage, he was so overpowered it was unbelievable as he had never seen such a lightning display that made Dameon look like a little child.

He met many genin during the war and most of them would disappear, die or run away in the bloodthirsty battle field. The new coldness Yuzu learned also led to him using his own team mates as human shields in order to survive, it was not heartless or cold, it was either him or them. He then met the shinobi of Kumogakure. A really strong genjutsu user Kenji Chikara who faced him in an underground battle that was never spoken of, however faint rumors of a small boy leaving with the genjutsu master were seen and the boy was wounded as some began to wonder what kind of training it was, or whether the other village was abusing the young genin at the time.

After a short while in the war Yuzu had been promoted to Chuunin due to circumstance, the war had taken its toll, with the large drop in numbers for Chuunin they had to get replacements, they had no other choice then to make the young boy step up to the challenge.

He survived, he became acknowledged in ways that many would have never achieved in the same situation. All history serves is to let us know that the one truth is certain and that was those who survived were the strongest of all.

The Battle

It was the defining moment as she seemed to be eager to get him as his eels were ready to grasp at her, she may be fast but the eels were large so she either had to break through them or break away from them. However knowing Aya to not be one to back down at any point he expected her to find a way to break through. She was definitely using her speed a bit better now as if to not allow him an opening even when there was one she could close it as she saw fit. Sidestepping the eels would not be enough, as he had a feeling she did not understand his technique though she did react with something that showed she was not simply going to make light of it completely.

That twisting motion looked familiar, but he could not quite figure out what she was planning as the eels were in her way, was she planning to try to hit at them and fall into his trap. There was no way it would be that easy. The air chilled for a moment in time as the water eel protecting his technique had shattered as his eels had her within in range, however there was one thing they could not account for.

As he flew backwards he understood that she had used some kind of technique to break through as the one eel before her shattered and fell to the ground breaking the shards as she seemed to be making this land a mix of barren and wet lands. He crashed into a nearby tree, but he had his other water eel and his water armor to rely on so he was not out of it as something flew towards him only to be hit down hard by his mist drop technique. The technique like the previous version had more then one strike, but was this the end. He raised his sword having not completed it as she seemed to have used no offensive ability yet.

He was sweating, but for some reason that was natural when you stood before a monster. That was the truth of Ayakashi, she had long since become a monster and no one dared to tell her so to her face. Even if she wished to, she had no time to argue this matter since that was not something that meant anything to her. He raised his blade again but a bit lower then previously to shorten the time it would take for the final wave of the mist drop. His electric eels were now rotating around him in case she came close to snare her, while his water eel stayed. If it was not for his eels weakness of remaining near to him he may have managed to get her.

Yuzu Ren

The air was static and the ground was damp, a mix of water and ice as he focused on his technique, he had to stretch his mind a bit more then usual. He had his defences up, he had his technique ready, all he had to do was hope she would take his challenge. He whispered softly as the electricity sparked from his hands through the wet blade and along the surface of the water, it was a technique to break her techniques, would she face it head on or avoid it. How would the strongest deal with her weakness, how would she face a technique made to break her. She could stop it easily, but did she still have it in her to stop it as the lightning burst forth towards her along the ground spreading itself everywhere.

"aya" as he said her name softly as it vibrated with the air would she understand what it was he wanted to say, what it was that he wanted to tell her. Would she face him or run away, would she show her strength or walk away. Was the one before him the ruler of this land and the strongest there is, the attack was slow but the thing that he was telling her was simple. He was telling her to back off, for her to take a single step back was all he wanted, she may have dodged his attacks before, but now he was goading her. He knew very well it was slow, but he also knew that if she left the ground it would be the moment he needed and the moment he was waiting for, even if she was fast if she jumped through the air he would finally have his opening. The opening he had been waiting for to strike her down and bring her back, if she was leaving for the sake of the village one would understand. However Aya was never this rash, she was never this lost before. What happened while he was away, what could have hurt someone as strong as her so badly that she would resort to this.

He would lower his blade as well to prevent any techniques that she planned to use and ending his mist drop technique. However this was not the end, this was where he wanted to know if she understood and if she knew who he was. Did she remember him for his strength or for his weakness, did she embrace everything that is him or did she lose her time as well.

Chakra = 160 - 20 = 140

The technique basically disables techniques by interrupting you and causes you to drop all weapons you holding when hit, as well as a bit of damage as well...

Mist Drop technique being finished off soon, and other techniques are still active with one of the water eels being down but the other one is still there and his lightning ones are still okay. If you need more details just pm me please....

Ayakashi

Ayakashi


S-rank
The ending of the battle would be swift

Ayakashi would find herself within her opponents guard and spinning as the eels around her opponent would coil around her looking to strangle the mizukage with their vice like grip. But the young octopus had too much to learn, and Ayakashi had given in to rage which flurried within herself like a rampaging blizzard. Yuzu ren had been gone a long time, she wished she could have called him a loyal swordsman, his relationship with Gin was something that had granted him some level of amnesty for the longest time, but, Ayakashi had said that his mission here was to survive... If he could not survive the onslaught of the Mizukage as a member of the seven swordsmen, he was not worth coming back into the village. Yuzu Ren was powerful in his own right, but he was young and Naive. As the Chakra from within Ayakashi swirled outwards Yuzu was caught by surprised, the tendrils which had wrapped around her would be bounced outwards as Yuzu was thrown back... slamming him into the tree.

From here, the deed was done.


As he bounced off the tree time would need to slow for the human eye to percieve the interraction. Ayakashi had already looped her fingers around the Vortex Fuma shuriken at her back... by the time Yuzu would have connected with the tree, Aya would have let the death-spinner fly. moments after his body would then rag-doll forward, too soon to be past any reaction other than that of the pain he'd just experienced, the Fuma shuriken would have penetrated the Suiton armour, the blade of the weapon far too strong and too sharp for the armour to be able to resist against. Like sheathing a sword the Shuriken's long curved blade would penetrate the ninja's chest, the dulled momentum from the water surrounding the boy would stop the spin cycle preventing any bisection, but not the impact of the blow while he was in midair. Catching him like a falling leaf and pinning him to the tree like a moth. The blade having penetrated his rib-cage with a wide enough blade to divide the mans' heart in two... perhaps if he were older, and more experienced as a swordsman should be, he could have survived the assault.

Aya would hold her final pose, processing what had occured her chakra control vanishing in a single pulse.


She had honestly thought he would avoid the strike, part of her had wanted to pull the blade back, or activate her substitution to avoid it, yet she hadn't. Why? The boy wished to return to the land of Kirigakure, was the thought of coming home so wrong? No... It was that Ayakashi had allowed others to come and go before, posing a threat to the security of the nation, as well as an unstable seat of power which would fluctuate too wildly for her liking. It was time to allow new blood to fill the shoes of the Seven Swordsmen. Yuzu ren had been one of her first, but he surely would not be the last to wield Kukan and Sozo....

Letting the boy rest there for a moment as the active chakra faded from his system, the eels vanishing and the light leaving his eyes. Ayakashi would approach him, resting her hand on his shoulder before removing the blade, and helping him slump downward. Conscious or not, she would watch the S Rank ninja fall. Leaning close enough to whisper a final fare-well to the boy. Sleep Yuzu Ren, there is no shame where you're going, a land with no sorrow or hardship awaits you. Next we meet, you, will test my worthiness.

Reaching into the boys cloak, she would find one of his fuuinjutsu tags, placing a hand on his chest and laying him flat, she would allow her chakra to build up, freezing the boy solid the thinnest amount on his surface to preserve his body within her frozen crystal. writing the basic sealing technique upon the tag, she would rest her hand on his chest, and see him whisked away to a safe location. Later she would find a way to honor the boys' memory, but as of now. There was little the mizukage could do.

But she couldn't shake the tearing feeling in her heart.


Reaching down, her fingers shaking at the prospect of this particular death, she would find her mask, bringing it to her face as she would use it to once again hide the wave of oncoming tears. She could recall much of what the boy had done for them, but also how he and his mother at caused strain between kirigakure and other nations... However she could justify the action, within ayakashi's psychi, there would be yet another crack forming in its form. The spiderwebs of fractures spreading outwards entangling her in a series of regrets that could not be undone.

So it was, as Ayakashi would walk away from old and forgotten things, she would harden her heart in sleet once again, looking towards the future. Hopefully the world she would create then would be one where those around her did not need to suffer so.

After the most recent review of this conflict the previous death ruling has been voided. A more thorough reading of the thread revealed that Yuzu Ren had indeed responded to the shuriken toss in his last post. This thread will resume at post 15. It is Ayakashi's turn to respond.

Ayakashi

Ayakashi


S-rank
The Boy was quick, but he was in too deep.


Her shot to his chest would have rattled him, the absolute lack of kinetic energy allowed within the field would have completely nullified any shock absorption that was granted from his barrier as he was launched at full speed towards the tree, Ayakashi hurling the Fuuma Shuriken moments afterwards in a terrifying display of strength and skill. However, it seemed that Yuzu Ren had managed to recover some-what midair, gripping his blade and raising it over his head as he bought the weapon down with the final iteration of his mist-drop technique, slamming the fuma shuriken down into the dirt below his feet little more than half a meter away... and once again, he had fallen into the trap laid by Ayakashi.


'too little too late little one.'


No sooner had his momentum turned to touch down to the ground, Ayakashi wore her devilish grin, the battle was hers now and she knew it, Yuzu Rens' eels were likely beginning to attempt to move into a defensive position at this point, but Ayakashi already had her next attack well within his range. Making a single half hand-seal she would activate the stored power within the Vortex Fuuma shuriken as she would draw Changeling form her back, unclipping the clasp which held the wire string in place with the pole releasing it with a subtle hiss against the wind.  Simultaneously, Ayakashi's hand which had thrown the Fuma Shuriken had reached behind her, gripping tightly 5 of her Aisu Family arrows, all within the time of her completing her final spin after throwing the blade and knocking the first of her fistful against her horizontally aligned bow held at shoulder height.


'And Hell Frozen Rain would fall.'


The vortex that would swell up from the fuuma shuriken below Yuzu-Rens' feet well before he would have the chance to speak, channel his raiton or even touch down on the ground would whip up in a frenzy and rip him from the air. The ninja was already caught well within its radii as the tree that he had slammed into would begin to loose its branches which would hurtle back towards him as the vortex would, within a fortieth of a second intend to rip Yuzu into its gaping maw and no footing for him to brace or stand on. The earth around and Under Yuzu ren would be drawn into the vortex and ground into sand as there was no solid hefty stone to stand or get a grip on in the vast forest Jungles of Kirigakure. What was more, Ayakashi would launch her arrows at such an angle that they would work with and curve through the Vortex in a slight orbit towards Yuzu Ren, speeding up as they came within range and loosing none of their potency. One after another they would be let fly at such a rate, that before the first one would enter the area of the vortex, the final of the 5 arrows would have left her hand.


'Yet surprises still lay in store.'


A light while line at the end of each of the arrows that Curved for Yuzu in the vortex would betray yet another of Ayakashi's plans within plans. Should he attempt to dodge the arrows, so distracted that he would be, it would almost be impossible for Ren to sight the chakra strings that were attached to each of the ends of the arrows in flight. Each of them would be like a Harpoon. The circular wind force of the Vortex should they miss would pull the strings in on him from every angle within the vortex, Tangling him and making it difficult to move as they would tangle within the spinning blade and draw him in like a pulley... In Ayas' eyes, this was over.


'But that doesn't mean she wasn't on guard...'


From this point, Ayakashi would keep a Keen eye on Yuzu-ren, she knew he didn't have the sheer strength to fight against the pull of the wind force, had he been clever enough to set up an escape in advance? Or was he too focused on his defense that he had allowed it to cloud his senses to alternative means of attack. Ayakashi was sly, and crafty, always attacking head on, yet also from a side simultaneously. A truly relentless foe who, in her mind, had won battles before having ever marched to war. Yuzu Ren had discarded his several advantages in this fight, but, that was not for Ayakashi to evaluate. He was an experienced ninja who was supposed to be strong enough to be considered one of the legendary seven swordsmen, although Ayakashi had slipped in the beginning of the fight, loosing herself to her anger and expending far too much chakra too quickly against attacks which she could have and would have avoided. Yuzu ren was close to the finish line now...


'Could he make it?'


Ayakashi in this fight had not had time to think, the split second reprieve after the activation of her Vortex Fuma shuriken was the first time her mind had been at reast for a moment, she was thinking about how Yuzu-ren would get out of this particular mess, her rope dart slipping into her wrist, yet, as she did so, as her conscious mind cleared, she could not help but ask herself... why was she doing this? Why had she blamed him for all of this? Was it because of his mother? Was it because of his absense? Or was she just projecting her own pain and abandonment and lashing out at Yuzu because he was the only one of them all who had come back... When she began to think about it...


'Didn't that make him better than the others?'


So she would wait for the boys' action, ready to step in at a moments' notice.



chakra:


80 chakra
-5 for sage mode
-25 for S rank chakra strings.

50 chakra remaining.

Name: Puppet Technique (Kugutsu no Jutsu ~ 傀儡の術)
Canon/Custom: Canon.
Rank: E.
Type: Supplementary.
Element: None.
Range: 50m.
Specialty: Kugutsu.
Duration: -5 per post.
Cooldown: Duration +1 post.
Description: This jutsu generates long, fibrous, malleable chakra strings from each of the user's fingers. They are partially intangible to prevent tangling; this jutsu cannot be used to bind people. The condensed chakra takes a hue of variable color depending on the user. Use of this technique on puppets is only available to those with the Kugutsu specialty. However, people without skill in Puppetry can still generate chakra strings to control weapons they have the specializations to wield, within 30m. This consists of whipping them around like a flail or yo-yo, or controlling their path of travel when thrown.

This technique cannot control living people; it can only control corpses, or Human Puppets currently in the user's locker.

The user pays a certain amount of chakra upon activation to determine the strings' durability; if severed the strings can be reattached to the same target for 15 chakra.

25 chakra = S-rank jutsu that cause blunt-force, cutting, or piercing damage can break the strings.

As Yuzu was preparing to launch his offense something that he probably should have expected from someone of Ayakashi's level. As the shuriken that was knocked down simply began spinning again as the force began pulling his water eel resisting some monstrous attack as the shuriken seemed to be boring a hole into the ground. Had he been without his defence it might have actually been easier to move and at this point he could not understand why she was even going this far to begin with. His mind was focused on the battle, but deep down in the furthest reaches of his psyche he could not understand why she did not simply go all out and kill him, or hold back more and get back to her important business with Sanosuke.

What was it with people and trying to break his defences, he had not even completed his training since he required Kukan and Sozo for this. Their combination was not important now, but it would be important then. He sometimes felt like he should have made his defensive technique with less limitations, but perfecting or mastering techniques took time which he did not always have. He had faced many people in the past and only once had he truly gained a victory that was satisfactory, while other victories were simply from his opponents lacking the strength or the skill to compete. Ayakashi had him beat on strength and skill, though it could be said her temper made her sometimes forget her better judgement. Had she been in a truly calm mood from the start things would not have even gotten this far at all.

His main focus was still Ayakashi and he did not understand why she would think using this technique would buy her enough time to draw out her changeling. He had seen it once before during his first trial to become one of the seven swordsmen. While his eel was delaying or stopping whatever this technique seemed to be trying to do as the ground itself began to form a crater. Even if it could by pass the physical defences of the eel, he also had his water armor as well to prevent him from having to worry about this being some unique jutsu of hers. Though the idea of having his movement sealed in such a way was annoying to say the least.

She was not taking out any ordinary arrows though, she was using arrows he had not seen before as he thought to himself. The thought that instantly struck him at that moment was that he did not want to be trapped and he did not like the idea of being used as target practice. As he focused his chakra into yet another technique he had hoped to not be using at all, since he was hoping to keep it as a surprise for Aya even if it would not be full proof, he felt like it was too weak to be hidden as a trump card.

The image of Yuzu before Aya was there, as it appeared as if his defences had slipped away as his body seemed to come apart in a splash. He had timed this technique to simply avoid being in the line of fire for her arrows to begin with as she may have found it suspicious that the water eel would simply back away. Though that was the techniques strength and weakness, it lacked range from always pulling itself towards the user, but was reliable in that it would always be with the original. He witnessed as the image was destroyed, though the fact that her arrows were set to strike him dead in the centre was disturbing to say the least. If he did not have his water eel would he have suffered a hit from at least one or two of those, he also knew he could not drag this fight out too long since his defences had a major flaw which Aya may have picked up on already given her level of skill.

As the vortex seemed to clear as the feint sign of strings made him even more suspicious as he was confused as to why his slash seemed to have passed through something at the time but what he wanted to know now was why Ayakashi was so different, what had caused her so much pain. Was the weight of the world really becoming too much for her to bare. The range was a bit short only able to travel about twenty meters there was no way it would reach her but just cutting down some of the ice on the battlefield would be enough to get his point across at least is what he hoped for.

He also had to finish his training to get back at Dameon, the former leader of the Seven Swordsman for looking down at him. The water eel was still there, it was easy to keep it going, but it was a pain to have to rely on it so much as his water armor would also begin to cause problems if this dragged on any further.

Chakra = 160 - 15(c-rank jutsu) - 5(s-rank item ability) = 140

Post Summary for reference
The ignition of the vortex is like a flash bang making him feel suspicious as well as the pulling force made him use his After Image technique to propel himself away from the vortex and outside of its range.
The water eel follows him according to how the technique works and his water armor still remains intact.
The image gets hit by the vortex and arrows and splashes onto the ground like a wet after image.
He launches a single slash from his Masamune with its ability that is out of range as he is now really far back now and simply has it cut down some ice debris on the battle field, though they have high perception so they can see each other pretty well from the distance which is probably pretty far at this point.

Listing weapon ability:
Name: Masamune
Type Of Weapon: Sword(Kenjutsu)
Rank: S
Elemental Alignment: None
Quantity: 1
Ability/Function: The hilt of this blade has the ability to shatter bones and cause internal bleeding, the blade itself can cut straight through and pierce. The blade can remove limbs and cut through bones, buildings and other objects . The blades length is 1.8 meters.

The blade has seals crafted inside the blade giving it enhanced range of a unique kind when the blade is used.

Due to the nature of the runic seals inside the blade the mixture had the effect of amplifying the cutting abilities of the sword itself. When the blade is swung or thrusted the runes inside the blade activate requiring a small portion of chakra to release its ability.

Cleave
When this ability is used a white silhoette distortion is seen where the cleave occurs.
This cleave has the same damage as the weapon itself interacting as a basic attack

Range when making a slashing attack will reach 20m at 35 meters per second at a width of 5m. Range when making a stabbing attack will reach 20m at 35 meters per second at a width of 1m. 5 chakra is paid per usage.

Listing All Currently Active and Recently Used Jutsu:

Name: Water Release: Armor of Water
Suiton: Mizu no Yoroi
Canon/Custom: Custom
Rank: S
Type: Defensive
Element: Suiton
Range: Self
Specialty: Ninjutsu
Duration: 4 posts, maintainable(10 chakra)
Cooldown: 8+ posts
Description: The user infuses chakra into water that attaches itself to the surface of their skin and clothing protecting the user from damage as the water like chakra absorbs the force and dissipates it to deal no damage. This defence is unaffected by anything B-Rank and below and can block up to 3 A-Rank jutsu or 2 S-Rank jutsu, this jutsu is unaffected by Katon that is A-rank and below.

Basic hand to hand strikes with a strength lower than A-rank have no effect on this armor. The absorption also helps against projectiles slowing them down and removing most of their force, however arrows will still pierce half an inch if B-Rank and an inch if A-Rank. Direct hits will not cause the user to flinch as the water absorbs the force, however the user can still be knocked back by A-Rank hits while B-Rank hits can still be enough to slow down or hinder user's movement.

This jutsu requires a water source to activate

Posts during which there are no water sources do not count towards the cooldown of this jutsu
(still active)

Name: Suiton : Mizu Unagi "Water Release : Water Eels"
Canon/Custom: Custom
Rank: B
Type: Offensive/Defensive/Supplementary
Element: Suiton
Range: 50m
Specialty: Ninjutsu
Duration: 4 + 4 posts
Cooldown: 8 + 4 posts
Description: The user imbues water with his chakra or takes water already imbued with his chakra to create one large water eel or two small water eels. Depending on the amount of chakra used and number of eels made effects the jutsu since the water eels also have different properties dependent on the water used. It costs ten more chakra to create another eel.

Small eel can not defend, large eel can not attack

Large Water Eel: This eel possesses a large body and will stop ordinary physical attacks and block up to 1 A-Rank or 2 B-Rank jutsu or 1 B and 2 C's. This eel is immune to all jutsu D-Rank and lower. This eels body is roughly two meters in radius moves at around fifteen meters per second but stays wrapped around the user in general as a defensive measure. This eel will never be more than ten meters from the user.

Small Water Eel This eel possesses a small body but has a strong grip strength as it moves at around 35m/s and this jutsu does not interact with defensive jutsu and has no damage. The eel reaches out and is a radius of one and a half meters but due to its homing nature once it touches the target they become bound to their location for one post. The opponent can break free by using an A-rank offensive jutsu on the eel.

ONE LARGE DEFENSIVE EEL REMAINING

Cooldown: 4 - 8 posts
Description: The user creates an image of himself made of water that has a slight mirror like effect which acts as a small distraction as a splash effect occurs when the image is hit. Upon creating the image the user is propelled as the chakra used to make the image is shot from him and he moves at a dashing speed. This technique may be used again in the next post at the cost of 10 chakra, but the cooldown is doubled. The second dash also leaves an image behind as well.

Ayakashi

Ayakashi


S-rank
It was close, but it got the point across.


Yuzu had seemed to escape the brunt of Ayakashi's attack but he would not exit unscathed, the throwing and charging of the Fuma shuriken had been the trigger to the vortex which had not reacted to until the very last second, allowing himself to even be within the range of the ensuing pull from every direction would be a costly mistake for the ninja, as within moments, 1/2 inch slashes all around Yuzu from the pressure and force of the vortex as well as the whipped up debris would open over his body. Stress tears lashing away ripping into his extremities, a 1/2 inch gash on a finger making it completely unusable while others nipped capillary clusters in his skin and a minor vein in his outer thigh before he was able to burst out of the technique with his chakra powered movement. the beauty of a pull force as opposed to a push force, was that pull forces, pulled from the outside of their range inwards, rather than pushing from the inside out, meaning that, unless one could defend themselves at every angle simultaneously, there 'was' a wall that one would have to pass through if one was already within its range at the point of activation. And in Yuzu's case, that was so, with about a dozen nasty hand-length small cuts across his body to prove it.


'Crimson had scattered the battle-field, and her opponent bled openly.'


As Yuzu ren seemed to move beyond the strike, breaking through the deadly vortex only with the help of jutsu enhanced speed that would allow him to move faster than the vortex was intending to pull him in, and even then, only by a minuet margin. Yet in the end was able to struggle 5m free of the pull force of Ayakashi's weapon. The after-image he had left behind meaning nothing as it would have been instantly cut down by the cutting power and offensive potential of the vortex itself upon its activation, and not as the arrows reached it at all. As soon as Yuzu-ren escaped the vast radii of her skill, he would let out a shock-wave from his weapon, smirking in turn, Ayakashi would swipe with little more than her hand, sending another shock-wave to meet it half-way and at vastly superior speeds. Colliding with one another the two waves would send up a massive geyser of ice, dirt and debris due to the force of Ayakashi's art of reckless release alone.

Yet, once again, it was all just a ploy, Yuzu-ren had no means of seeing beyond the veil that Ayakashi had created, and with no means to sense her chakra because of her cloak, Ayakashi would have the perfect distraction to get under the boy's skin yet again, for perhaps her final attack on him in this battle. The swipe with her bow allowed her to simultaneously knock several arrows against her bow-string as she would activate her last technique that she had in waiting. She'd noticed from the wounds that he's sustained that the water armour that was protecting him, although it was a solid defense against chakra enhanced attacks, it was not as grand a defense against the basic strikes she herself was capable of making in broad destructive arcs with any of her rapid accelerated movement. This fact, suited Ayakashi just fine as she would perform the single hand-seal to enact her final assault plan.


'In a moment, the Mizukage was gone.'


Appearing in a moment where her throwing weapon had once been, Ayakashi would route her momentum with a rapid burst of speed towards Yuzu-ren, allowing chakra to burst from her tanketsu, increasing her speed to her sprint speed instantaneously. though the burst of raw speed only projected her 4m at 46mp/s, it was far faster than the technique Yuzu had only just used to evade her previous attack. Ayakashi at this new break-neck speed would aim her bow at point-blanc range with Yuzu-ren, while ready to adjust her movement in accordance with his in a moments' notice he'd only barely escaped the range of her technique before, and now he was truly in the danger zone. Eel or no eel, it moved at a drastically low and limited speed, it was unlikely it, or he for that matter, would be able to move so much as an inch yet alone a meter with the combined assault that was coming towards him, however, just in case... As Ayakashi would allow the first of her arrows to fly, they were not necessarily aimed at 'him.' Of the four that were interlaced between her fingers to fire in a 'fan' the two in the center were aimed down slightly, as they were released they would fire for Yuzu-Rens's thighs just above the knee, while the other two to the outside were aimed 'out' slightly, not aiming for him at all, but to about a meter either side of him to cut off any potential escape routes.

N o longer had Ayakashi's first volley flown a meter at 70mp/s + her own 46mp/s movement speed catapulting them even faster like a second stage missile. Ayakashi's hand in time with her release whipped back and in one fluent motion had a second hand-full of 4 arrows, releasing her bow backwards and procedurally with trick-archery like accuracy launching a second volley more like a shot-gun. Each of the arrows aiming for either side, just under Yuzu's collar-bones and at both of his kidneys. Grouped close enough together that he could not slide in between them, nor so far apart that he could maneuver to only deal with one at the speeds he was capable of moving... Then, there was the final factor to consider... Ayakashi had the ability to alter her mode of movement up to twice more at her own movement speed... Should Yuzu-ren attempt to accelerate his movement to escape, and lock in a set destination with another speed jutsu, Ayakashi would react in turn, bursting in time with his speed and potentially out-running it to fire another interception volley to catch him in the midst of his motion another shot-gun flurry of her family arrows aimed for the same locations as the first in such a perfect arc they would slam him short of out-running the arrows themselves.


'He was simply not fast enough.'


Yuzu ren was quick of eye, not not quick enough to even 'perceive' Ayakashi at her maximum speeds. She would vanish before his eyes as soon as she had activated her acceleration jutsu, not even becoming a blur to him as her arrows would let fly to vital locations on his body not guarded by the eel. Should the arrows at his collarbones land, they would fissure the top of his lungs, even if they missed precisely, the force of their impacts with the art of reckless release behind their rapid acceleration as well as the added force would rip wide an open hole around the arrow with the force alone tearing out not only lung fragments but potentially nicking vital arteries that run up the neck from the heart. The two aimed for his thighs would potentially puncture the femoral arteries aimed there, while those aimed for his kidneys were self explanatory... and all vital locations lingering less than an inch below the surface of his toned, slender and athletic frame...

Without him being able to even percieve her motion, yet alone her attack, Yuzu-Ren would be defenseless, without being able to match or even 'near' her speed with his own reaction time or the speed of his defensive eel, even the thought of it being able to intercept her arrows would be almost laughable. Then to only add the damnable fact that he was now wounded. Although the process had been well thought through in advance as she had prepared her follow on as she attempted the to ensnare him with her wire-tipped arrows. The entirety of the complex and well thought through attack, even should he attempt a quick dodge, inspiring a third volley, would all be over within a third of a second from the time she activated her substitution... The goal was to hit as many undefended locations made by the gaps in his eel defense as possible, at speeds that Yuzu could not possibly comprehend.


Check-mate.


25 chakra:
Name: Substitution Technique (変わり身の術 ~ Kawarimi no Jutsu)
Canon/Custom: Canon.
Rank: E.
Type: Supplementary.
Element: None.
Range: One prepared item in the user's clear line of sight.
Speciality: Ninjutsu.
Duration: 1 post preparation. Infinite postponement, Instant activation.
Cooldown: 6 posts after activation.
Description: The Substitution Technique is an age-old skill which enables the user to evade the effects of an attack by switching with an item in the area. (The item---or substantial clone---used for a Substitute must be as large as the user's torso, and must be prepared at least 1 post in advance by infusing it with 5 chakra.) Activating this jutsu for another 5 chakra, the ninja moves at untraceable speed for just a moment, and the item does so as well to take the user's place; the ninja leaves behind a flickering after-image for a second, which, if damaged, releases the chakra which holds it in place in a small smoke cloud, revealing the nature of the technique and the item they have switched with. Higher-rank ninjas' afterimages are able to show some of the signs of natural impact as if it were an actual human, if only for a very short period, before 'poofing'. The user coming out of the technique creates a similar audio and visual cue with a small cloud of translucent smoke and a 'poofing' sound on appearance in the location of the item they Substituted with. This technique causes the user to move at speeds untraceable to human perception, and therefore even the user cannot coordinate attacks during the Kawarimi, or activate any other jutsu. They, however, can maneuver near someone and then attack them after the fast-movement is finished.

Name: Hyouton Dash
Canon/Custom: Custom
Rank: C
Type: Supplementary
Element: Hyouton
Range: up to 12m total
Specialty: Taijutsu
Duration: 1
Cooldown: 2
Description: The user opens their hands feet and back chakra gates for a moment with Hyouton chakra and explode it outwards in a tiny release without any molding whatsoever, creating a force strong enough to propel the user in a chosen direction accelerating instantly to the users maximum speed for up to 4 meters at a time, able to give the user quick bursts of speed (max 3 bursts) and/or the ability to change direction instantly in mid-air or otherwise without drawback. The release of chakra suddenly can cause a purely aesthetic visual effect which is up to the user to determine. (it can sparkle or make a symbol or something cool)

OOC: Your chakra at the end of the last post was 140, your C rank jutsu + S rank ability + maintenance of your 2 jutsu should reduce you down to 105. You've miscounted your chakra costs 'most' of the thread. Ie, reducing 20 instead of 25 for A rank jutsu etc and neglecting maintenance costs. Please fix these and recount throughout the thread. Kukan and sozo's ability to copy a jutsu costs '10 additional chakra per turn' and you had that mist-drop on for a couple posts.

With ayakashi's blinding speed the arrows would have landed in between the cracks in Yuzu rens' armour each of them penetrating deeply and lurching the ninja back, the armour he wore negating the knockback, but not the interior force of the bolts as the shockwaves that were emitted from them would lacerate his insides. Each of the bolts landed a direct hit on the ninja, caving in the boys' lungs, causing him to no longer be able to breathe one way or another. As they hit, at the same time the two bolts weaseled between the eel that had coiled around him covering his vitals, striking both of his kidneys as they would begin to bleed openly. His water armour that surrounded him combined with the lacerations that he had taken was beginning to pollute as a deep red that surrounded his form. Yuzu-Ren would look up in shock, as if asking 'why' but the fact of the matter was, that this battle was being fought by a place of darkness deep within Ayakashi. As his vision would begin to go hazy and red, Ayakashi would begin to walk slowly up to Yuzu-ren.

'But something was different.'

Ayakashi wasn't moving like she should have been, she was swaying from side to side, the lack of chakra in her system had her hair turning white and her eye becoming the usual silvery white of the byakkugan rather than the sickly killer electric blue of her usual eyes. Her limbs would hang lankily at her sides as her breathing would be paced and drawn. Something was deeply wrong. Though she wore her mask, it was like Ayakashi had become an entirely different person over the course of the fight, she had regained some kind of control, but at the same time, she had totally lost herself to the killer instincts and the animated dark side within her. The many fragments of her personality had finally, with one last blow interconnected. Hundreds of minor cracks and fissures across a pane of glass independent of one another creeping toward the center were finally united with a single dent in its heard forming, instead, an expansive united web that generated something deep from the depths of her emotional ID. There had been a paradigm shift, what was there was no longer the Ayakashi that the world knew.

Drawing changeling into its spear form she would move closer, pressing it to the heart of Yuzu-ren as the blade would sink into his chest between his ribs, resting against the paracardial sack just enough so that the softened beat of his heart would threaten to cut it, but not quite yet as Ayakashi would begin to speak. Her voice cracked and broken as her mind was, almost sub human. "Well, Yuzu-ren, it seems you've failed... failed to live up to the duties of the seven swordsmen, failed to live up to the duties of sanin of Kirigakure, and failed this nation time and time again with your absence... your treason... Consider this, your dishonorable discharge as a missing ninja. You were the youngest of the seven, and although i tried, you're still just a child."

With her final words she would sink the blade into his heart like a blade into its sheath as he would begin to fade into nothingness. His body giving way as the water from his techniques would splash around them, crossing past Ayakashi's foot as her usual ice cold temperatures that would have frozen such water on contact, sloshed past her feet as normal, not so much as chilling it at the touch. Looking down the creature in Ayakashi's place would look to her hands in wonder... something was different, something was new, she could remember, but, she wasn't the same as before. Ayakashi had been reborn... no longer the demon ice witch... Looking back to Yuzu-Ren, she could feel the rage from before welling up inside of her, fueling her, taking one of the blades from his body she would begin to lift the boy up, using the last of her chakra to activate the blade, looking between it and her victim, one thought would cross her mind... if he wanted this so badly... he can have it!

With a single swing the blade would hew through his neck, ending everything once and for all, ending the life of a former ninja of Kirigakure by her own hand, like any other traitor to the nation... but this one was different, it was in anger, in hate, in fury, not in the calm calculating mind of Ayakashi normally. Something was born today... something evil within Aya, formed from a corrupted and twisted urgent need for justice. Somewhere in the darkness, a hand waved over a frosted crystal, and an image of ayakashi faded from its glass, as a voiced echoed out with a thought.

"Tell the others, a three clawed crow's been born."
