OOC:

-A splinter off the main thread with my post here: http://www.narutosaga.com/t27185-the-siege-of-inabayama-open#216735 for another set of combatants

Things unfolded quickly and yet it seemed to phase at the slowest pace, every detail of everything was crashing down onto his conscious but it didn't feel overwhelming in any sense as the masked Uchiha's eyes scoured across the field in front of him. Lady Ayakashi's infamous Alpha squad was already at the point of meeting this new chakra along with others that arrived into the scene. Nearby ANBU were assisting the scene and trying to recover wounded while maintaining the barrier at the same time. It was chaotic but from Maigo's vantage off the main path of the battlefield, he was just waiting like a spider, for some prey to fall into his range.

Despite the short moments of waiting, his mind couldn't help but feel the tension and anxiety about all of the incredibly powerful people, along with someone powerful enough to challenge Ayakashi directly. Maigo was doing his best to control his breathing while crouched at the top of the small hill that they had perched themselves on. His concentration was unwavered but with so many combatants and so much happening, would he ever find the chance to interrupt and enter combat? The concepts and situations of the fight barreling towards him and Nayoko began to spin in his mind, how he would respond and what approach he would take before his concentration was interrupted.

"Change of plans." the voice crawled next to him as a figure flickered to join his crouched position overlooking the majority of the scene ahead of him.

"There's enemy forces coming in, we're gonna pull back and try to get a message off to the encampment itself for reinforcements." the voice rang out quietly as two more masked figures flickered in behind them. Maybe it was an obvious tactic, send a message for more help and to report on what was happening thus far but it seemed... stretched. The masked figure that spoke kept his eyes not on the combatants directly in front of him but in the distance, where Lady Ayakashi would be fighting and around that, knowing that a large force was going to be making its descent upon them soon. Maigo would simply nod with a single spoken, "Alright." before turning to make sure that Nayoko were alright with their new plan and had no objections to it.

It was like a slowly building figure in the fading sun as Maigo looked into the near distance and saw the images of enemy arriving onto the battlefield, soon their descent would clash with the ANBU protecting the barrier and sabotaging their efforts in this land. Spilled blood would soak into the sand and Maigo's grip would tighten on a now empty fist as he would feel the regret of not being able to meet this enemy head on into combat. Dead comrades and dead dreams would be the only thing left in the wake here, toyed with like the very nation itself. Rolling back into the heels of his feet, Maigo would seamlessly move into standing and turn away from the scene while dashing backwards to the encampment.

More forces would arrive for sure, but to contain this, they needed a show of force and power. Messages needed to be sent and orders arrived, the squad of Hunter nin would fall back and take up some position closer to the encampment itself despite being a few kilometers away. Their specialty wasn't direct combat against a horde of enemies, it was elimination of specific and direct targets, like those that would slip through the cracks and continue the onslaught towards the village. With Nayoko's clearing, the squad would advance onwards and begin dashing through the desert in the shape of a spearhead while the sun seemed to further apex in the sky and bring more heat down upon them. Arid was beyond them but Maigo's position in the right wing gave him some buffer from any enemies that might chase them directly. With a sensory ninja in the center reading out and marking what he could at the very center, focusing his chakra and the ANBU sensory technique to feel out what he could for while they made their retreat.

Maigo drew forth his Kyoketsu Shoge though, holding the blade itself in his hand with the blade pointing down from his palm while his footsteps burned through the desert in their destination. If all went well, it wouldn't take them but a few minutes to get to their new position but the better question would be, who would contest their exit?

-Sensory ANBU:
Name: ANBU Sensory Range (Chikakya: ANBU ~ 知覚野・暗部)
Canon/Custom: Custom.
Rank: B.
Type: Supplementary.
Element: N/A
Range: 100m.
Specialty: ANBU Only
Duration: Maintainable (-10 per turn)

Special Jounin
“You know, when I said I’d stand by your side, this isn’t exactly what I had in mind.”, Rysano would chuckle slightly as he felt the puppet descend further. In the confined space, it was easy for him to notice a change in Nova. With the emerald glow of the orb of chakra floating inches away from their faces, he would see the blank look upon Nova's face. Not only the sickly green tint from the light would make her look ill, but the sheen of sweat on her brow and glassy eyes. Only the ever-twitching motion of her fingers indicated in any way that there was something behind those black eyes. “Oh no. This is not the time Sasori. I’m going to need Nova back.”, the look upon her face was one that Rysano was familiar with, giving him and only him the ability to recognize what was happening here. Shimmying his arms up to either side of her, he would press hold her face in his hands and close his eyes. Sasori would feel the pinpricks as Rysano tried to push himself into the space he held Nova's mind captive, though with a brush of his hands he would push it away. For the first time, Sasori would speak directly to the blond haired medic, “You do not know what you tamper with child. It is fortunate that the one I live through has an attachment to you or I would have dispatched you for nothing other than silence. Though it was Nova's lips and tongue that formed the words, they resonated with a voice that had not been heard on this plane for hundreds of years.

“D-don't hurt him please.., Nova would plead with the being that stood over her within her mind, controlling her like a marionette. No response would come, though Nova suspected it was because it was not his intent to begin with but rather and idle threat, and she would fall silent once more. “there are many strong forces as work here...”, Sasori would mutter within the black space he inhabited in her mind, currently a place so real to Nova that it was tangible as it seemed Sasori had managed to push mind inwards. Even with all her concentration focused on it, she could not do so much as to even move a finger of her own accord. “I am unfamiliar with the forces I will be going against.... Tell me who you think has caused this?”, this was perhaps the least certain of things Nova had heard Sasori mutter. Stuttering for a moment, she would try to impart what little knowledge she had of the powers at work here upon him, “Only one I am certain of... the one that you say reminded you of... of Orichimaru. I believe that would be Lamya. She is one of the ones who took part in the destruction of Suna. Yosei.. the man who wore the guise of Obito was the one who told me I must come here.... Perhaps the kage's of the remaining villages? Ayakashi the Mizukage, Hastur the Raikage. The others... I do not know if they will be here. There has been so much happening here though, I would not be surprised if shinobi from all over have traveled for this fight.” Even Nova was surprised as words flowed from her mouth, feeling a strange compulsion to share everything she knew with the unwelcome mind. Pausing for a moment, she would tack on a thought at the end," the Raikage was the one who sent me the scroll that contained you... as well as having blown up the better part of a mountain. If he is present.... then I am truly afraid.

Nova's finger would twitch forwards, sending both the real Doku Tsuki as well as the doton replica's further with the intent to gain a better layout of the battlefield before engaging. Past the being that held that sickening chakra that made Sasori remember the snake man, and a body that Nova would recognize as a man she had done an S-rank mission in Kiri with before she had left that ever-sodden village. Before them lay a mostly empty desert landscape, with pinpricks of movement at the edge of the clone's senses. They moved in formation, suggesting that perhaps they were member of ANBU, or at least working with them.ANBU and the Hunter Nin are still around hm?, Sasori would think inwardly to Nova, though would not wait for a response. This time his voice would resonate withing the hull of the puppet and Nova's mind, “Now we shall join in the battle that rages before us....". Doku Tsuki would jolt forward, moving faster through the ground with a rumble, the clones sliding through the earth above them though still submerged, moving in a V like a flock of geese. They were close now, no more than fifty meters to go, though they were nearly eighty meters below them still.  Panic would course through Nova's veins at his words, facing off against several members of ANBU or Hunter nin?? Adrenaline would course through her veins, giving her just enough power to whisper a few words aloud before Sasori tightened his grasp on her will. “Rysano... I can't stop him.”

Chakra 165/225:

-5 chakra to maintain
Name: Puppeteer Clique 
Canon/Custom: Custom 
Rank: B 
Type: Supplementary 
Element: N/A 
Range: 60m 
Specialty: Kugutsu 
Duration: Maintainable 
Cooldown: Double the Maintained Duration 
Description: Nova separates a few kugutsu string from an already active jutsu and condenses them into a small orb of chakra threads that float, emanating the users selected color chakra. These yarn-ball like orbs   can, on their own, move at about 5mp/s. On contact with a puppet, owned by the jutsu's user, that would require strings they absorb through the body and float within the puppet. The threads that make up the orb extend to make contact with the puppet, and behave as if they are being controlled by the jutsu's user. 
The jutsu can not move outside of a 60m radius of the user or will disperse, leaving the puppet out of the users control. A stipulation of this justu is puppets controlled with this technique must be structurally able to move etc in order to do so, as they have no external force controlling them or holding them up.





-5 chakra to maintain
Name: Puppet Technique (Kugutsu no Jutsu ~ 傀儡の術)
Canon/Custom: Canon.
Rank: E.
Type: Supplementary.
Element: None.
Range: 30m.
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. Unless durability is enhanced by a separate technique, these chakra strings can be broken by any D rank technique that causes blunt force, cutting, or piercing damage.

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

Rysano

avatar

Genin
Rysano felt the blast of a wave of energy disconnect him from Nova’s mind. It was becoming a familiar sensation to him as it seemed every time he attempted to enter her mind and separate Sasori’s power from her, the puppet was able to block Rysano’s access rather easily. It was understandable as Rysano was still new to this technique and not only was Sasori a very powerful shinobi during his life, but he was already deeply implanted within Nova, and it would take a lot of work to remove him from his entrenchment.

As Rysano took a moment to reevaluate the situation, a voice came from the body of the girl next to him. Although it was clearly emanating from Nova’s mouth, it was obvious the disembodied sound was not the voice of the young puppet master. “You do not know what you tamper with child.” Rysano had never heard this voice before, but he could infer pretty easily whom it belonged to, “It is fortunate that the one I live through has an attachment to you or I would have dispatched you for nothing other than silence.”

The fingers of Nova’s hands continued to twitch and move, controlling the husk they currently sat in. Although her body was still moving, it was obvious she had no control over anything anymore. Sasori had completely consumed her for the time being, and as Rysano considered the words he had just spoken, he agreed that it was quite fortunate he had befriended Nova before Sasori tightened his grip on her being. There was no way Rysano could stand in a fight against Nova herself, especially not with Sasori at the reins. He still needed to tread carefully though. Even if Nova had an attachment to him, he had learned just how erratic Sasori’s behavior could be, and as long as he still had a grip on Nova, no one around them was safe.

Rysano returned his hands to their previous resting place on Nova’s face, this time without any chakra coursing through them as he attempted to just speak with the two of them. “Well now, he finally speaks,” the words clearly directed at Sasori, “Truthfully I liked you better when you were silent.” As he finished the sentence, he once again began molding his chakra and attempting to break through to where he had Nova trapped. He didn’t need to enter her mind, he only needed to open a space large enough for her to hear him. “Nova, listen to me, you have to try and fight him. I know you said we were heading into battle, and I’d feel much better if I knew you were fighting beside me instead of this monster.”

He hoped that at least his words might make it through to her before Sasori was able to shut him out once again. He watched Nova’s face for any sign of a change. So far the eyes were just as black as they had been, the face’s expression unchanging. He could feel the extent of Sasori’s power emanating through his hands. There was no doubt this was the Sasori of the Akatsuki. Rysano had done some research on him after learning of Nova’s possession of him. He was one of the leading purveyors of human puppetry, which explained some of the things he tried to make Nova do. And even in his current state, his power was nothing to be taken lightly. He was constantly able to prevent Rysano’s access into Nova’s mind in order to interfere with him. But Rysano could feel that he was constantly able to make progress. Each time Sasori pushed him out, the next time Rysano was able to push a little deeper, sometimes being able to pierce through the veil that separated Nova from the world. He could feel her presence this time as his words reached her and he heard her response. “Rysano... I can't stop him.”

Rysano was stunned, but happy to hear the few words escape her mouth, barely audible even within the cramped confines of Doku Tsuki. He knew it. He’d been able to pierce through enough to hear her voice just before Sasori blocked him once again. Rysano laughed to himself quietly, a hint of nervousness in it, but he was genuinely happy at the progress. Every time Sasori took over, he was afraid Nova would never come back. It was good to know she was still in there. “It’s only a matter of time Sasori.” He said aloud. He knew he’d have to take a few minutes to recuperate and plan his next attempt. Sasori was smart, and he’d be able to stop Rysano easily if he tried the same attack every time.

Rysano felt the puppet they were inside of continue to move. Obviously, Sasori was still intent on joining whatever fight was happening in front of them. At least if his attention was devoted elsewhere Rysano might have an easier time breaking his hold over Nova. It was only a hope, and he had never actually succeeded in entering her mind, let alone actually breaking Sasori’s control. But he’d have to try. He didn’t exactly have a lot of faith in Sasori not turning on him after he finished with the other opponents across the field.

He needed to try a completely new tactic. It was a risky move, but nothing else had ever worked. He began channeling one more time, this time instead of attempting to pull Nova out or separate the bond between the other two, he began trying to merge his consciousness with theirs. He had glimpsed the empty, dark space where Sasori kept Nova trapped whenever he took over. Rysano wanted to splice into that space. It might make it easier for him to help Nova if he was there with her, able to directly interfere with Sasori. Obviously, there was risk involved. He had never done anything like this before. He didn’t know if he’d be able to leave at his own behest, or if Sasori would be able to take him over as well, but he had to do what he could to help Nova.

With one last burst of chakra, he placed both thumbs together in the center of Nova’s forehead and felt the inside of Doku Tsuki melt away as he fell into the inky darkness.

Nayoko

avatar



The scene that the Nayoko had arrived at was almost overwhelming with the amount of action unfolding all around him and his other masked companions. The Hattori simply crouched silently, trying to take in every detail of what was going on so that he could react appropriately when the time came, but even for a highly trained shinobi like himself the amount of activity passing by him. The Mizukage’s personal squad of hunter nin had arrived on the scene and were heading toward the emerging chakra signatures that Nayoko followed with his ANBU sensory technique. Simultaneously, a plethora of ANBU for Kirigakure no Sato and his own village were recovering their fallen comrades while keeping the barrier around the warring giants up and strong. It was exhausting, sitting in place like he and Maigo had been told to do. The Konoha ANBU captain knew that they had a purpose holding up the rear of the support ninja, but he also knew that the two of them could cleave through the enemy force alongside Ayakashi’s Alpha squad if they were told to. There was a lot of potential being wasted on holding a line when one of the other hunter nin could have easily done the same. But Nayoko knew how to follow orders; and so he waited with his ally.

In their time of patience, Nayoko watched the fight with great focus, trying to understand just who was the enemy that the Mizukage was fighting toe to toe with. He had fought against her himself in simple sparring bouts, as well as along side her in the heat of battle. To stand up against her seemed nigh impossible, and yet the Hattori could see the far off in the distance that the mystery man was clashing with her like he was almost, if not just as strong as her. But as his gaze finally passed over the threat, a shiver ran up Nayoko’s spine. For he recognized the chakra signature that he was seeing, as much as he wished he didn’t. It was that of a man that he had fought one on one before as well. In fact, the man had almost killed him in the desert, before fighting alongside him at a different time against a common enemy. He could not believe what he was seeing, and instinctively he took one step forward as if he would step into the middle of a fight between two of the most powerful people he had ever met.

But thankfully his foolhardy action was interrupted by the sound of a voice emerging from next to Maigo, telling them that there had been a change of plan. The ANBU that emerged into the space next to his friend continued speaking in a quiet, measured tone that betrayed the severity of the situation. Clearly he had wandered closer to the battle than Nayoko had, else Nayoko would probably understand just how bad the battle was going for them. "There's enemy forces coming in, we're gonna pull back and try to get a message off to the encampment itself for reinforcements.". His words were accompanied by the flicker of two more shinobi appearing beside him. It seemed like overkill for all of them to deliver a message away from the scene of the battle, but once again the Hattori found himself at the mercy of someone else’s command. He was used to making the tactical decisions ever since becoming the captain of his ANBU squad, and though he could see some merit in providing five ninja to complete a delivery mission, there was far too much going on for it to be a choice that the Leaf ANBU would have made. Even so, Nayoko nodded as Maigo turned to him for confirmation of their new objective.

As they turned to leave the scene, Nayoko caught sight of the incoming wave of the enemies arriving onto the site of the battle. The barrier that was being maintained by the ANBU forces would soon be overrun by the force that now presented itself to the forces of Kirigakure no Sato. Nayoko turned away as the blood of his allies and enemies alike poured out onto sand below them and his knuckles would go white. He wanted to turn around and plow through the criminals, but he had a mission to do, and he hated every second of it. The feeling of death was palpable to the point where it saturated the air, the taste of iron from the blood in the air overwhelming the rest of his senses. The participants in the tactical retreat moved as one cohesive unit despite their different affiliations as the hunter nin moved to send more messages and take up position closer to the camp. The squad pushed on and on in the shape of a spearhead, flying across the desert without anyone to contest their movement. As Nayoko took up the left flank he could not help but wonder…

Would anyone try to stop them?

Maigo

Every footstep that tracked through the sand seemed to be washed out by the intense rays of the sun as the squad tracked through the desert and began to escape away from the ensuing battle at hand. It was like crackles of noise began to fill the air as they left, the sounds of battle and the cries of dead as the lines of enemy began to crash against the fortified Kiri ninja. Blocked out with every twist and tinge of vibration that would hit Maigo's ears as they escaped away, a tightened fist regretfully pressing the shoge further into his palm. A chance to let his rage out was slipping through his fingers and leaking down into the sand below his feet away from the battlefield where the real blood and sweat flowed to the ground.

Maigo could feel the twitch in his head, as his demeanor shifted again towards melancholy, the mask on his face covered his emotions so well but the intent leaked from his body like rage. The Uchiha was contained but almost demanded to be unbridled, his footsteps felt heavy and though he kept up, each of them seemed to drain more energy from him and bring on grater fatigue than needed. His life, his anger, and his understanding of the situation was being left behind but it was a necessity that called out. His hope fled to the idea that maybe once the message was delivered they could turn and return to the fight. The very chaos left uncontrolled in their wake and though Maigo wouldn't get a chance to save those ninja left to die in his absence, he would certainly face the strongest remaining of the enemy. It was like an elixir to him, the hope sitting deep behind a melancholy stature was intoxicating and distracting the very mind that would so often sit enclosed and silent, waiting and serving his mission with purpose.

Still, in his distracted state, Maigo's eyes would wander lazily across their flank and watching for incoming ninja. The sensory ninja in the center would call out to break the short silence they made over the moment they traveled across the desert,

"Enemies behind us, two squads gaining ground."

He let out quickly with some worry, his eyes dashing between Maigo and Nayoko at the flanks before looking ahead. Maigo's eyes would turn quickly over his left shoulder while running to stay in formation and glaring behind him.






Two squads of elite Ryujin ninja would begin to close in on the escaping party. They had seen the Hunter ninja flee and with that, they knew they had to stop them from escaping at all costs and prevent further back up from reaching them. They all wore the standard armor afforded them and each carried weapons on their backs, ranging from simple katanas to great axes that weighed heavily in their hands. Their footsteps were light and dashing across the sand, leaving the lightest trace as they caught their eyes and began tracking down their prey.






Maigo's eyes would trace as each of the figures would dash back and forth in a varying formation, keeping their exact location and position changing constantly. The Hunter captain would turn his back and slow down to the main of the group before speaking up to them, "Aisu, you're with me. We'll meet them head on and try to slow them down." he nodded with a bit of confidence while drawing the katana from his back and turning sharply with the extra ANBU to meet their foe head on and slow them down, leaving Maigo and Nayoko to escort their sensory member further along and to deliver what information they had picked up. The further burning and regret in his mind carried as his footsteps continued to carry him even further away from the action.

The formation quickly shifted so that the sensor took the lead with Maigo and Nayoko at the two wings, carrying away quickly past the ANBU that were engaging behind them. A quick shifting of sand below them caught his attention as the flicker of his eyes to the space below his feet immediately began to bring a flurry of questions and concerns on him, wondering if the enemy had been able to slip away others or bring their jutsu underground to cut them off. Maigo's left hand would instinctually reach to his back pocket as he would stop to pivot on the balls of his feet and face the quick disturbance.

"Below!" the quick shout would come from Maigo as an alert in case the others hadn't noticed it and with his arm pulling out two kunai from his pouch among the assortment of others, he would press off his feet and jump up and away from his spot. Leaving several meters distance in his position and holding the two knives across his chest while eyeing the desert below himself in a short chance to catch whatever was below before descending back to the ground.

The continuing ninja wouldn't have made it any more than maybe 30 meters past where the others broke off to engage the enemy directly who would be catching everything from a cozy distance approaching. It would put them in an awful spot for a brief moment, tactically broken up and no sounding of where their enemy was or would be heading. Maigo's eyes would scan desperately across the plane of his vision, everything seeming to slow down before him in a brief moment as he tried to piece it all together.

Nova Makato

Special Jounin
“It’s only a matter of time Sasori.”, tears would well in the corner of Nova's eyes, despite her lack of control in her own body. She could even feel the warmth of his hands as he pressed them to her cheeks. Yet stuck in the black void of her mind she remained, unable to see or speak to the medic. While Sasori's fingers danced to control her own movements, he seemed to no longer be paying attention to neither Nova nor Rysano, instead his attention focused on the movement that could be felt through the shared connection to the puppet. Nova would feel it to, a number of bodies moving across the earth. Unfortunately, Nova was unsure who was who and Sasori payed no mind to that dilemma. She could only hope that Sasori was still as skilled in combat as he was in his own time, and would be able to at the very least protect her from harm. Rysano's thumbs would slide from the sides of Nova's face to the center of her forehead, resting against each other and pressing to her flushed skin. Taking a deep breath in, he would focus on her and what lie in her mind.

Here in her mind Nova's head hung to the side, a physical display of the helplessness she felt herself caught in. Fingers dancing away at Doku Tsuki's strings, though the control was not her own but of the one who's own strings held her limbs. Sasori seemed to have fallen into a silent concentration, focused only on those that the sensory intertwined pair could feel moving above the sand's surface. Perhaps it was this that distracted him enough to not notice the change that was slowly happening around them. On the black floor before Nova, she would watch with horror as it began to warp and swirl. Behaving nearly like a heavy fog trapped in a current of wind, it would swirl and nearly bubble as a mass would emerge from the murkiness. At first the acrid looking fog would merely swirl around the growing lump, followed moments later by it falling away as though water washed it from the form. Kneeling before her now was Rysano. Heart pounding and eyes fluttering, fear would flow through her body. She was able to keep the actions of Sasori restrained to her mind for the most part and would be able to keep him safe on the physical plane, but here in the warped reality of her mind she lacked the confidence that she would be able to protect him. “Why... why did you come here....”, her hoarse voice would whisper, hoping not to draw the attention of the man who controlled her like a marionette who's eyes were closed in concentration.

Beneath the earth the puppet would circle, while above two forces would converge. Two groups of three would approach from either side, in the center were a trio, seeming escorted by a pair of men who seemed to retain a more steady demeanor as two groups of three would circle around them like a pack of wolves. They would hold their distance, edging no closer than fifty meters towards the men as they watched. Presumably the group in the center were the hunter nin that Sasori had referred two. The other though... could be anyone from members from another village to rogue nin who had formed a band in the wastelands of Suna. Each scorpion would twitch it's tail as a different piece of ammunition would be loaded to be fired. Three of the five clones would circle below, drill tipped canisters prepared to fire towards the surrounded group. Those that were left would rise closer to the ground, five meters beneath the earth rather than thirty as the circling trio were.

Smug thoughts would bleed into Nova's mind as Sasori readied the first wave of projectiles for launch, a surprise attack from all sides most successfully executed by one who held control off all factors rather than relying on the faultiness of communication and cooperation. A moment of hesitation would tint his actions as within the mind of the girl he possessed, he would spot another being. Angrily would would growl out, “You have made a grave mistake....”

From the trio beneath the earth the drill missiles would tunnel out, covering the thirty meter stretch of earth in a fraction of a second before striking air and combusting. They were strategically placed, forming a triangle around the men twelve meters from where their feet rest on the earth. Each canister would explode into a fireball thirty meters across, flinging rocks and chunks of nearly melted sand and earth nearly twenty meters from the epicenter of the blast. Simultaneously the two that rested closer to the surface would jab their stingers upwards, once in the open air they would fire the ammunition that they had swapped to. They were opposite each other in relation to the group in the center, thirty meters off and just out off the range of the flames and earth that would erupt. From their cannons a pair of webs would be launched, offset seven meters from the center of the group to cover the most amount of area. Each projectile would spread in the air as it was launched, expanding to reveal each to the a web made of barely perceptible threads that spanned twenty meters at its full size. Shot just barely above the surface of the earth they would arc upwards, aimed fifteen meters above the heads of the men who were the target of this synchronized assault. Whatever the men would do to react was yet to be seen, but Sasori bore a hungry smile as he embroiled himself in the first battle he had seen in upwards of three centuries.

Through gritted teeth and a stiff jaw from concentration, Sasori would growl at the boy who dared enter the mind he inhabited “I recommend you stay where you are, lest something happen to your physical form” Nova would look on pleadingly at Rysano who now shared the terrifying space she had been trapped in before. Her mouth would not move, nor her extended arms which bore the glowing chakra strings that extended from Sasori's fingers. Nova's attention was split, between the dangerous standoff within her head and the happenings in the land of sand. Helplessly watching on, merely a spectator of the actions of her own body, all five of the clones wold fire in on the five men in the center. Now a more calm and steady tone from Sasori, almost emotionless, he would speak once more, “The battle has already begun, and any distractions you cause me will only result in harm to yourself and the girl.” Sasori's black eyes would focus on Rysano now, his attention focused on him rather than the battle for a moment. A snide tone in his voice now, “Would you care to watch?” Letting one hand bear the strings that controlled the chikamatsu girl, the other would wave upwards at the black expanse above them. Like the fog that had separated around Rysano when he emerged into this place, the ceiling would roil and ebb and flow for a moment, before suddently it would form a landscape above them. The fog now three-dimentional and opaque, it painted the scene that play out from the perspective of the puppet their true bodies were held within. Each body, movement, heartbeat from the earth around the puppet was shown, their form and movment represented from the smoke and moved in what could only be assumed to be an approximation of the battle that now play out.

Chakra 155/225:

-5 chakra to maintain
Name: Puppeteer Clique 
Canon/Custom: Custom 
Rank: B 
Type: Supplementary 
Element: N/A 
Range: 60m 
Specialty: Kugutsu 
Duration: Maintainable 
Cooldown: Double the Maintained Duration 
Description: Nova separates a few kugutsu string from an already active jutsu and condenses them into a small orb of chakra threads that float, emanating the users selected color chakra. These yarn-ball like orbs   can, on their own, move at about 5mp/s. On contact with a puppet, owned by the jutsu's user, that would require strings they absorb through the body and float within the puppet. The threads that make up the orb extend to make contact with the puppet, and behave as if they are being controlled by the jutsu's user. 
The jutsu can not move outside of a 60m radius of the user or will disperse, leaving the puppet out of the users control. A stipulation of this justu is puppets controlled with this technique must be structurally able to move etc in order to do so, as they have no external force controlling them or holding them up.





-5 chakra to maintain
Name: Puppet Technique (Kugutsu no Jutsu ~ 傀儡の術)
Canon/Custom: Canon.
Rank: E.
Type: Supplementary.
Element: None.
Range: 30m.
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. Unless durability is enhanced by a separate technique, these chakra strings can be broken by any D rank technique that causes blunt force, cutting, or piercing damage.

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

Items used:

Name:Razor web 2.0
Type Of Weapon:Puppet ammunition
Rank:A-rank
Elemental Alignment:N/A
Quantity:2
Ability/Function:This ten meter radius razor web is modeled after Nova's original weapon, however this is a much stronger version and is made out of a better alloy that allows it to retain certain elements. The wires are no more than four inches apart on any part of web, giving no room for things to slip through. The web extends to its full size at 10 meters away from where its shot, and moved at the speed dictated by the weapon that shot it. The web itself can be broken free within one post with a strength of S-rank, taking an addition post for each rank below S.  It can also be cut with a jutsu of A-rank or higher. Upon impact the web cuts 3/4th of an inch deep, but upon struggling can slice to, and potentially through, bone.

Due to the high quality of the metal, it is able to conduct and retain raiton and katon damage if struck by something of that element(that is a lower rank than itself) and will deal damage of that type and rank as well. The elemental damage dealt is based on the rank of jutsu that comes in contact with it. B-rank katon causes major 2rd degree burns in addition to the cuts, C-rank causes minor 2nd degree burns, D-rank first degree burn. e-rank cause negligible burns. Raiton damage is reflected with a -1 rank to damage. the damage is retained for two posts. The thin wires require a b-rank perception to perceive normally, and they can be seen at C-rank if there is a light source nearby.
Appearance: 10 meter diameter razor web looks like a web crafted by a giant spider, the wires are so thin that they are hard to see unless there is a nearby light source.
History: Razor wire web version 2.0.





Name:Dorirumisairu(drill missle)
Type Of Weapon:Puppet ammunition
Rank:A
Elemental Alignment:Doton/Katon
Quantity:2
Ability/Function:This ammunition is made specifically for Doku Tsuki and its unique ability to go underground. A metal cylinder has a “drill” attachment on the front of it that allows it to be shot from underground and still travel at the speed and range that the cannon its shot from dictates. The drill portion is able to pierce 2 inches into flesh, and after impact with flesh the projectile itself will combust. The elementally charged projectile will explode, sending chunks of earth flying in a 20 meter radius around it forcefully enough to break bone upon impact. In addition, the katon combustion itself can cause major 3rd degree burns within a 15 meter radius.
Appearance: Though the projectile itself is somewhat small, the drill on the front gives it a heft to pick up. When fired the drill starts and guides the projectile in a straight line, able to pass through earth and rock.
History: more weapons!!!

Rysano

avatar

Genin
Rysano had never attempted to enter Nova’s mind before. He had spent some time hypothesizing a technique that may allow him to peer into her mind to use in situations like this, when Sasori took over, but he had yet to actually use it. He had no idea what to expect as he forced himself through Sasori’s barrier and felt the inside of the puppet melt away as he began to spiral into the darkness ahead of him. As his consciousness began to merge with that of Nova and Sasori he could tell he was somewhere else entirely. His body felt different, like he was in some sort of dream state, but he still had total control over himself, and this was no dream.

His body twisted and turned as he fell through the abyss. Featureless as it was, it was difficult to tell where he was going. In the pitch blackness, he could see nothing around him. For all he knew, he could have been suspended in one place. It was terribly disorientating. He began to ponder whether or not he had made a mistake coming here to save Nova. When he had enacted his new technique, he had acted without thinking about the possible consequences. He wanted to free Nova, and he’d do whatever he could to help her. But now, alone, free-falling through nothing, he began to wonder if he had made a mistake. He had never been here before, and he wasn’t exactly sure how he would return to his physical body even if he was able to break Sasori’s hold over his friend. He didn’t know if, by merging his mind with Nova’s, if he had somehow given Sasori a way to control him as well. These were all consequences, but they were ones he would deal with as they arose. He was here to help Nova, and he wouldn’t have made a different decision even if he had considered all the issues first. He was here now, and he had different problems to solve now.

His planning time was cut short however, when his form collided with what felt like the surface of a body of water. As he crashed through it however, it didn’t feel as if he dropped into a lake, but more like he and run into a wall that was now deforming as he strained against it. He felt a force pushing him through, no matter how he strained against it. He was finally able to see something as it slowly began to part in front of him. The darkness quickly gave way to a dimly lit area as the wall completely fell away around him. As he finally emerged into the new area, he looked up to see Nova and Sasori within his view.

Within the dark expanse, the two figures in front of him were the only things visible in the light that seemed to originate from nowhere in particular. It was dark here as well, but nothing like the absolute black he had just experienced. He could see Nova’s body, slumped in resignation that she had no control over her actions. Glowing chakra strings attached to her in various places traced back to the ever moving fingers of the man he came to stop. Sasori’s face was as void of emotion as ever, his attentioned seemingly elsewhere as Rysano arrived. It was good to see Nova still in one piece. Rysano had been fearful he may find her in a similar situation to the time he had found her alone in the woods with a blade in her arm. She didn’t seem as pleased to see him however, as she whispered hoarsely to him, “Why... why did you come here....”

He had hoped she might be a little happier that he came to save her, but he could understand why she felt the way she did. She realized everything he had thought of during his fall through the abyss. Rysano could have just opened himself up to Sasori’s control as well. He had no time to respond however, as just as quickly as he had been distracted, Sasori’s attention returned to the mind space to recognize the new presence that had intruded. “You have made a grave mistake....” His voice would growl from inside his hollow shell. Rysano could feel the rumble of multiple explosions in the real world as Sasori said this. The battle was still happening even as Sasori was distracted by him. “I recommend you stay where you are, lest something happen to your physical form” Rysano looked back to Nova as he said this and saw the pleading look she was giving him. It was true, maybe this wasn’t the best time to try and separate the two of them while in the middle of a large battle. Sometimes Rysano’s judgment wasn’t the best. Sasori continued to talk. “The battle has already begun, and any distractions you cause me will only result in harm to yourself and the girl.” He had a point. He was not only in control of the combat puppets, but he also had dominion over the one which housed their physical bodies. They needed him to continue the fight for them for now. Sasori’s voice now betrayed the emotions his face could not show. A smug tone began to creep into his voice. “Would you care to watch?” He asked as he removed the chakra strings from one of his hands. Gesturing above them all, the darkness of the ceiling began to roil and move to reveal a to-scale version of the battle happening in the physical world. It showed the explosive attack they were able to feel and its effect on the other ninja.

“Neat trick Sasori, but Nova would be able to handle this just as easily on her own than she would with your help.” Rysano would speak up for the first time since entering Nova’s mind. His voice sounded foreign to his own ears as it echoed around their chamber. He began to walk slowly around the perimeter of the room, keeping the same distance between him and the two puppeteers. “So why don’t you just let her go so she can handle her own puppets, huh? You wouldn’t like it if someone used your puppets without asking, would you?” Rysano would pose the question in a purposefully condescending way. He knew he stood no chance against Sasori in a fight, so he needed to convince Sasori to relinquish control willingly. Rysano thought of all the angles he could use to pressure Sasori’s personality. “I’m sure it’s been quite a while since you really interacted with the physical world. If you give Nova back her body, I’m sure she’d be willing to unseal your body for you.” Rysano would smile confidently at the red-haired figure. “Would be nice to finally control yourself again instead of others, wouldn’t it?”

He was pretty confident this was a decent avenue to try with Sasori. Since it seemed like the largest goal for him was to turn Nova into a human puppet like he did himself, Rysano could assume Sasori’s own body was his most prized puppet he had ever created, and would relish the chance to inhabit it once again. “You may even be able to convince her to let you control yourself, but of course, you’d have to loosen your grip on her first to even let her answer your question.” Rysano would stop walking after he said this, having positioned himself now to the side of the two puppeteers so Nova was on his left while Sasori was standing to his right, the chakra string connections directly in front of Rysano. He would hope perhaps that Sasori would take them up on the offer and release Nova willingly, but if it seemed like he was adamant about maintaining control over her or perhaps controlling Rysano as well now that he was here, Rysano would have to act accordingly.

If Sasori made the choice to continue possessing Nova, Rysano would pluck a hair from his head to quickly create a clone of himself to interfere with Sasori’s possession. Hopefully he would have at least loosened his grip to let Nova speak, and if so Rysano would send the clone to quickly cover the twenty meter distance between them and aim two chops directly at the chakra strings at the end of Sasori’s fingers, hopefully with enough strength to sever the connection to Nova. While his clone did this Rysano himself would move quickly towards Nova in order to scoop her body up and run with it. He knew they were in some sort of mind plane, and there might be nowhere to run, but it was all he could think to do. Whichever path Sasori decided to take, Rysano would do everything in his power to free Nova.

135/150:
Name: Reflection Clone Jutsu (反射分身の術 ~ Hansha Bunshin no Jutsu)
Canon/Custom: Custom
Rank: C
Type: Supplementary
Element: N/A
Range: N/A
Specialty: Medical Ninjutsu
Duration: 2 posts
Cooldown: 5 posts
Description: The user must have some sort of physical source of DNA from the target (or of their own) to use this technique, such as a strand of hair or a teardrop. Using the genetic makeup as a blueprint, the user creates a clone of the target that is difficult to discern from the original. These clones have no jutsu, and possess no items, but are capable of using C-Rank Taijutsu and have D-3 Speed and Strength, while the rest of their stats are E-Rank. They not only look exactly like the target they are made in the image of but they also have the same chakra signature and genetics, and thus cannot be recognized as a clone unless by use of a sensory technique of B-Rank or higher, making this technique's primary use to deceive other people. The clone will dissipate after 2 posts or if hit by a jutsu/strike of C-Rank or higher.

Nayoko

avatar



Nayoko had to force his eyes forward as the armies of Kirigakure ninja and criminals of the Land of Wind crashed into one another. He knew that if he looked back he would not be able to stop himself from jumping into the fray and saving his comrades. The sounds of clashing blades, exploding jutsu, and death rattles echoed across the dunes of sand that made up the expanse before the group of elite ninja. Nayoko’s fists tightened more and more until his knuckles were a solid white, the blood being completely pushed form his extremities. The anger that was boiling up within him was coming to head, and he knew that if he did not have something to act on soon, then he might go insane. Whispers of his inner demons begged him to launch himself into the fray, and it was only thanks to his training that he was able to resist the call of cruelty that he wanted so badly to set free.

The only thing that kept the Hattori pushing through the desert was the knowledge that as soon as their message was delivered, they would most likely be allowed to return to the battlefield and dish out some damage of their own. So many were already dead, and it meant that they needed to move even faster if they were going to have any people left to save. But the continued run was just beginning to wear on him physically, and that coupled with the mental fatigue that abandoning his allies brought about meant that he was not able to move as quickly as he would like. Even so, he kept pace with the rest of the squad, maintaining the formation that had brought them so far. It was then that the silence of contemplation was broken by the sensory ninja leading the way. "Enemies behind us, two squads gaining ground." The words caused Nayoko to quickly glance over his right shoulder to see the approaching threat.

There were what looked like two squads of enemy combatants headed toward the group. They had obviously spotted them, just as Nayoko had assumed they would when the plan was first presented to them. Their armor was no better than the ANBU at his side, and their formation betrayed a small level of inexperience. Nayoko’s uneven breaths finally calmed as he realized that he would at least be able to fight to complete this mission, and if these enemies died out here, then they would not kill the Kiri ninja. But his plan to turn and fight was interrupted by the captain of the squad, who instead chose one of the other members to face the approaching criminals head on. Nayoko let out a sigh as the ANBU drew his weapon and turned sharply with his partner, ready to fight to the death if need be. That left Maigo and Nayoko to move with the sensory ninja and make sure the message was delivered to the main encampment. The arrowhead formation slowly changed to a triangle of sorts with Nayoko and Maigo at the flanks, preparing to protect each other should something try to attack them.

Nayoko’s frustration with the situation was mounting in him, so much so that he would dnot have caught the first attack from their unseen enemy unless Maigo had pointed it out. But luckily for the Hattori, the Kiri jounin shouted a single word while jumping away from the attack, causing Nayoko to snap back to the moment and feel the gathering energy beneath his feet. He jumped forward and to his left, hoping to clear the area of mounting energy  as the threat from underground finally revealed itself. If not for the warning form his friend, Nayoko would have certainly been caught in the massive explosion that erupted from the earth beneath them, engulfing the area only a few meters in front of him in flame. The ANBU captain’s eyes widened beneath his mask as he caught sight of the nearly invisible threads of razer wire flying past him as well, realizing that if he did not defend himself, he would be torn to sheds. Even as he was still in the air, the jounin pooled fuuton chakra in the palm of his hand and rapidly molded it into a blade of wind. Gripping the hilt of the newly formed weapon, Nayoko spun and cut through the wire that was about to wrap around him, allowing him to react to the rest of the threat. The debris from the explosion would be nothing to sneeze at for somebody slower than himself, but thanks to his highly tuned senses and training, he was able to see the rock headed for his body. Twisting mid-air, Nayoko planted his feet on the oncoming projectile and pushed off out it to land outside of the rest of the stones, planting his feet on the blood soaked sand of the desert, crouched with his sword in his right hand and his left palm on the ground.

But even as he came to rest, a shiver ran up his spine. He was clear of the initial attack, but beneath the earth that had been blown open by the explosive attack Nayoko could sense a chakra like none other he had even felt before. It was a cold and dark sensation that seemed to overwhelm everything else. Even the battle of the giants in the distance did not contain the malice that he felt coming from whatever enemy has set themselves upon the group. Nayoko’s grip on the Blade of wind tightened as his eye scanned the area before him for the sensory ninja that had been standing next to ham and for Maigo. The smoke had yet to clear and so he could not see either of his allies, but he knew that the Uchiha had moved before even he had. He was probably safe for now as well, but the sensory ANBU had been focused on enemies ahead of them. The Hattori frowned beneath his mask and hoped for the best.

He stayed in his ready position, waiting for the follow up attack from the unseen enemy, ready to activate his Sage Mode if it was necessary, which he felt it might be if the horrible feeling from the earth was any indication.

WC:1062+842=1904

Chakra 275/320:
Name: Blade Of Wind (Kaze no Yaiba ~ 風の刃)
Canon/Custom: Canon
Rank: A
Type: Offensive
Element: Fūton
Range: 3 meters
Specialty: Ninjutsu
Duration: 3 posts
Cooldown: 8 posts
Description: The user emits chakra from their fingertips and materializes it into a transparent weapon comprised of razor-sharp winds. This "blade" can be extended up to three meters in length and operates similarly to a longsword. Any targets within a meter of the user will suffer minor 1/2 inch cuts just from the wind making contact as it gathers to the user's fingertips, even if they do not make contact with the blade itself. Direct attacks with the blade can cut into bone and even pierce through targets with enough force. As an alternative option, the wind may be formed into successive projectiles rather than one close-combat blade. Projectile blades can travel up to 10 meters each at 35 m/s, but their cutting power will be lowered; they will only cause cuts 1.5 inches in depth upon contact and they cannot cut through bone. Up to three projectiles can be made per post active.

Maigo

Maigo's jump sent him into the air away from the disturbance in the sand, bringing the kunai across his chest as he held the pointed end out from him. Popping from the ground in around them, several points burst out and exploded onto the scene, tearing through the sand and launching a flurry of earth and sand around them. Maigo would rotate his body back, letting the litheness of his figure try to bring him out from the explosions underneath, his eyes flickering momentarily as his eyes would envelop in a sea of red and three black tomoe spinning into life. His eyes turning before his body to notice the quickly closing in nets above them, the kunai spinning in his hands as he brought the second one to his other hand and charging them with chakra. There wasn't hardly anytime to think about what to do, with everything below him burning and scattering in chaos and the net above, he had to act purely on instinct.

With the bladed shoge in his hand, he would charge it full of chakra and let go two large crescents across his body in the shape of an 'X' to tear through the net above him. Rotating his hands to his side afterwards and rolling his body through the tear into the net and moving through the opening as thinly as he could make his body. Moving past the torn web and the exploding earth, his sharingan would trace the path to the ground while flickering around his surroundings. Landing into the earth on the balls of his feet, he would slide briefly and aim to control himself, the shoge in his left hand and his two kunai in his right hand. Keeping his body low and ready to react, his eyes would trace in the settling rubble and find his targets deep under the ground as four masses of chakra that shifted around slightly.

Maigo would continue to scour the field in front of him as he looked out to his right to find the sensory ANBU emerging from the dust while clutching at his arm and side. Maigo's head would turn and begin to dash towards him while keeping his eyes on the ground, aiming to rendezvous with his squad mate, unable to truly see Nayoko as the dust was settling. Sliding as he would reach the other ANBU, turning next to him quickly and keeping his eyes trained downwards to watch the chakra below him for any changes.

"Can you still move?"

"Yes, but not very well..." the ANBU would motion towards his side and arm that had obviously been broken in the blast, blood trickling down and more damage probably underneath the cover but Maigo payed no real attention to waiting for it.

"You should keep going, Nayoko and I will hold back as much as we can." Maigo would finish while leaning backwards on to the balls of his feet and bringing the shoge up in front of his chest while continue to map out the battlefield in front of him.

They were at a disadvantage with their opponent under the ground here, Maigo was already mapping it out completely and while they might not be able to travel underground to combat their opponent directly, they had learned a few things. Traps were going to be utmost to look out for, and that their opponent was hiding. Beyond that, the flames and explosion were large, they were widespread and attempting to catch a large radius, suggesting that their enemy might not know their exact number. It was too unknown for Maigo's liking, without any more words the sensory ANBU would nod and turn off, almost hopping along in a lazy sprint as he turned away and continued on to deliver the message, Maigo moving to block his path slightly while his eyes would continue to trace away and wait for the dust to finish settling and get a hold of Nayoko if he were alright.

Nova Makato

Special Jounin
“Neat trick Sasori, but Nova would be able to handle this just as easily on her own than she would with your help.” Rysano would speak up for the first time since entering Nova’s mind, his voice a strong and comforting presence in the absence of all else. Though it was easily recognizable as his, it was oddly distorted as it echoed its way to Nova's ears. Rysano stood with a confidence that Nova herself would not have when facing a situation such as the one he did. Slowly he would begin a slow pace around the perimeter of the room as he spoke, “So why don’t you just let her go so she can handle her own puppets, huh? You wouldn’t like it if someone used your puppets without asking, would you?” His words were clearly colored with an antagonistic tone. If she could move, Nova would have winced at the wave of anger that emanated from Sasori. It was nearly palpable in the air, a burning rage as he spoke. “Who do you think you are to command me? She is my puppet. I will use her as I please. As I have before and will do again.. Whether this was the response he had hoped for or not, Rysano would now be faced with a seething rage of one who's authority had been insulted.  “I’m sure it’s been quite a while since you really interacted with the physical world. If you give Nova back her body, I’m sure she’d be willing to unseal your body for you.”, A sly smile would cross the blond mans face as he pressed the matter further. Like poking a wolf that was barely restrained, antagonizing a wild animal without a prediction of how it would react. “Would be nice to finally control yourself again instead of others, wouldn’t it?” , the final words seem to strike a frightening cord in the mind of the animated construct.

”Foolish. You think that I do not control my actions? I control them and hers as well!”, he would gesture to the suspended form of Nova before continuing, “If I wished to interact with the world I will do so, and perhaps yet I will...” Sasori's monotone voice would trail off as the contruct would tilt its head upward to point the glossy glass eyes upwards to the smoke formed scene above them. Though three figured had once been where now there was no more than a crater, it was not due to their demise but rather a quick and efficient reaction on their part. Above Nova, Sasori, and Rysano's heads was the imagery of the fight they were embroiled in despite their actual contribution to the combat. Each had dashed to an opposite side of what remained of the sand they once stood on, one holding a blade of chakra that had been used to slice through the razor web that would have nearly entangled him and the other two in a very different state. It seemed the attack has at least landed one blow, the shattered arm of a man who seemed to be shaking slightly from the pain. Sasori himself would have pressed the man to fight had it been one under his command, though as it was he would appear to have been dismissed as he began his retreat. “You may even be able to convince her to let you control yourself, but of course, you’d have to loosen your grip on her first to even let her answer your question.” Nova had not noticed during the tense exchange of words how close Rysano had come, now placed equidistant from Sasori and herself. So subtle were the quiet steps it seemed he had not drawn the attention of the one such actions sought to hide from, aa Sasori's eyes were fixed above for a moment as whatever substance was below their feet shook.


Beneath the sands of Suna Doku Tsuki would tunnel upwards to the sun, the quintuplet of clones following suit. From either side of the now separated pair that stood besides the cratered earth, the two replicas that had fired the unfurling mass of razor wire would emerge and shake the sand from the spine covered shell that made its hull. Arching over the back of the scorpion construct, three meter long bladed tails would arch and wave over them as heavy pincers would click together menacingly. Ringed around the pointed barb at its tip, a chamber would click to the next slot readying to fire yet again. Toward the man who grasped a chakra sword one of the trio that had lurked under the earth would tunnel upwards, though this one would not emerge entirely and only its tail would rise above the earth pointing in the figures direction. The two remaining clones would perform the same reaction, though their tails pointed in the direction of the other man. From the hull's of the duo of surfaced puppets a the whine of moving mechanical parts and a grinding echo would sound as thick billowing clouds of sand would engulf the area around the puppets themselves. Would the puppet have needed a traditional form of vision this would have been an impediment, but the sensitive mechanism built into the scorpion allowed a clear map of the desert around them to be felt.

As the dust storm brewed on the battlefield, visible as two large clouds towering above the dunes, the three that were still burrowed beneath the surface would fire the next round on the duo that remained. Upon the sword wielding man one shell would be launched at his feet, followed less that a tenth of a second later by another web. This copy of the puppet had placed itself opposite the one that had created the dust storm on this side in relation to the man, and working cohesively together the one that still ground away at the earth to generate the storm would wait for the man to make a move before firing from its own slot, a thick metallic arrow that whistled through the air with a chain following it. Where the shell would land, where at least once the man stood, a burst of crackling electricity would spark as shreds of glinting metal would fly outwards. While this pair would maintain their assault on that opponent, the two beneath the earth circling the other man would fire their own projectiles, one firing the same web and the other another crackling explosion of electricity as the sand-storm creating beast here would fire the same as its counterpart, a thick barbed harpoon that would stab through the duststorm in whatever direction its target would jump after leaving his feet.

Amidst the chaos and out of view, the genuine Doku Tsuki would make its way to just below the surface of the sand. Though the sand would bulge upwards, it would not reveal the spines but only the tail flattened against the sand rather than arched upwards. Sasori's eyes would snap down to where Rysano stood, body tensed for action. Could the stiff face of the construct display a recognizable emotion, it would have been one of smug acceptance of the situation. “I will let her be. For the time.” An abrupt movement of his fingers would snap a single last movement from Nova before severing the connection and leaving her body to fall against the solid floor. Turning on his heel and moving with enough speed to leave the robe trailing behind him, Sasori would dash in the direction of the black barrier. Though upon first inspection it was visually solid, Sasori sunk into it like floating through mist. And with that.... he was gone. Nova lay limp for a moment on the floor, lavender hair splayed about her as she looked on with a blank expression for the time being. Despite that her limbs were freed, they felt as though they weighed tons and no amount of exertion would lift them from where they lay. It was fortunate, that despite this lack of mobility, Rysano would come and lift her from the misty floor. As he would carry her, her head would loll back and give her a view of the battle that still raged above their head both in life and this simulated image.

That last twitch of a finger was the command that he had held out on until most convenient, the unsealing of the damned scroll that he had been kept in for far too long. Less than a meter beneath the earth, it was close enough that Sasori would be unsealed standing upon the sand dune under which the puppet rested. He stood between the two clouds, his clean Akatsuki robe glinting in the sun as well as his smooth red hair. No visible strings connected him to anything, yet the twitch of his fingers indicated a modicum of control over the other constructs. Though the sandstorm would obscure direct vision, Sasori would stare through at the exact location of the man with the sword and wait for an action from either man. With Nova cradled in his arms, Rysano would run towards the fog as Sasori had... and after a brief moment of weightlessness would open her eyes to the dark interior of the coffin-like puppet to see Rysano staring back at her. A sick feeling in her stomach would take over for a moment as she felt the physical presence of Sasori through the scorpion's senses. “He... He is unsealed.”, the words would reverberate in the puppet as Sasori stood on the dunes surrounding Suna for the first time in centuries.

[1630 Wc]

Chakra 135/225:

-5 chakra to maintain
Name: Puppeteer Clique 
Canon/Custom: Custom 
Rank: B 
Type: Supplementary 
Element: N/A 
Range: 60m 
Specialty: Kugutsu 
Duration: Maintainable 
Cooldown: Double the Maintained Duration 
Description: Nova separates a few kugutsu string from an already active jutsu and condenses them into a small orb of chakra threads that float, emanating the users selected color chakra. These yarn-ball like orbs   can, on their own, move at about 5mp/s. On contact with a puppet, owned by the jutsu's user, that would require strings they absorb through the body and float within the puppet. The threads that make up the orb extend to make contact with the puppet, and behave as if they are being controlled by the jutsu's user. 
The jutsu can not move outside of a 60m radius of the user or will disperse, leaving the puppet out of the users control. A stipulation of this justu is puppets controlled with this technique must be structurally able to move etc in order to do so, as they have no external force controlling them or holding them up.





-5 chakra to maintain
Name: Puppet Technique (Kugutsu no Jutsu ~ 傀儡の術)
Canon/Custom: Canon.
Rank: E.
Type: Supplementary.
Element: None.
Range: 30m.
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. Unless durability is enhanced by a separate technique, these chakra strings can be broken by any D rank technique that causes blunt force, cutting, or piercing damage.

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





S-rank 15 chakra
Name: Generic Sealing Technique (Han'yō Fūin no Jutsu ~ 汎用封印の術)
Canon/Custom: Canon.
Rank: E.
Type: Supplementary.
Element: None.
Range: Direct contact.
Specialty: Fūinjutsu.
Duration: Instantaneous.
Cooldown: None.
Description: This technique is a standard ninja skill which allows a ninja to summon an assortment of items that have been stored using fūinjutsu. Scrolls are the most common choice for item storage. When needed, the owner will activate the seals releasing their item or weapon of choice, either on the ground or in-hand.
The jutsu can be used to either store an item in something or to summon it from something, but it can’t do both.
This jutsu can only seal the user's items, or items that were stolen from a target for more than 3 posts, or items stolen from a KO'd or killed character.
This jutsu has a variable chakra cost depending on the item summoned from the scroll/other item.

Items used:

Name:Sunaarashi to kiri(sandstorm and mist)
Type of Item: supplementary[puppet mod]
Rank: B-rank
Elemental Alignment: doton/suiton
Quantity: 1
Ability/Function: A slot on the bottom side of the puppet's face has a slot with which it can either be loaded with or take materials from its surroundings and disturb them in such a way that obscured vision in a 15 meter radius(water making it misty or earth making a duststorm/ sandstorm). Materials are taken in through the front slot, agitated within a meter long "tunnel" on the bottom of the puppet's body with a series of turbines, and expelled through the back of the tunnel. The cloud created forms a dome centered on the puppet itself. Those with B3 perception or below can only see their hands in front of them, A0-A3 rank can see up to 10 meters. The cloud can be dispersed with a fuuton technique of A-rank or above. The cloud lasts for 4 posts and the modification can be used 2 posts after the original cloud subsides.
Appearance:mounted on the bottom of the puppets shell is a 1 foot wide, 4 inch tall tunnel shaped chamber with a grated slot on the front and bottom. Within the tunnel are a number of metal turbines.
History:Though the puppet would be able to dig underground, an additional visual impairment for the enemies would prove useful as Doku-tsuki does not need vision itself.





Name:Razor web 2.0
Type Of Weapon:Puppet ammunition
Rank:A-rank
Elemental Alignment:N/A
Quantity:2
Ability/Function:This ten meter radius razor web is modeled after Nova's original weapon, however this is a much stronger version and is made out of a better alloy that allows it to retain certain elements. The wires are no more than four inches apart on any part of web, giving no room for things to slip through. The web extends to its full size at 10 meters away from where its shot, and moved at the speed dictated by the weapon that shot it. The web itself can be broken free within one post with a strength of S-rank, taking an addition post for each rank below S.  It can also be cut with a jutsu of A-rank or higher. Upon impact the web cuts 3/4th of an inch deep, but upon struggling can slice to, and potentially through, bone.

Due to the high quality of the metal, it is able to conduct and retain raiton and katon damage if struck by something of that element(that is a lower rank than itself) and will deal damage of that type and rank as well. The elemental damage dealt is based on the rank of jutsu that comes in contact with it. B-rank katon causes major 2rd degree burns in addition to the cuts, C-rank causes minor 2nd degree burns, D-rank first degree burn. e-rank cause negligible burns. Raiton damage is reflected with a -1 rank to damage. the damage is retained for two posts. The thin wires require a b-rank perception to perceive normally, and they can be seen at C-rank if there is a light source nearby.
Appearance: 10 meter diameter razor web looks like a web crafted by a giant spider, the wires are so thin that they are hard to see unless there is a nearby light source.
History: Razor wire web version 2.0.





Name:Denki hahen(Electric shrapnel)
Type Of Weapon:Puppet ammunition
Rank: A-rank
Elemental Alignment: Raiton
Quantity: 1
Ability/Function: This small rounded projectile is a filled with a number of explosive chemicals, and then is filled to the brim with electrically charged core that, upon explosion, sends out a raiton wave that conducts to the metal shards causing them to deal both physical damage and raiton damage. It is appropriately sized to be fired from any of the cannons that Nova has created for her puppets. After being fired, the projectile will explode impact. The explosion sends the metal shrapnel flying outwards, piercing up to three inches within a range of 15 meters from the explosion. From 15 meters to 25 meters, the shrapnel can pierce an inch and a half. In addition, if struck by the electrified metal shards, the electrical current causes a reaction in whoever is struck's muscles and caused them to have a -1 rank to reaction time and speed.
Appearance:A steel cylinder that is quite heavy, its filled entirely with the components that make it up. On the back of the cylinder is a small “tail” to ensure that it flies straight.
History: Nova wanted to expand the options she had to load in her puppets cannons.





Name:Mori Aro(harpoon arrow)
Type Of Weapon:Puppet ammunition
Rank:A-rank
Elemental Alignment:n/a
Quantity:1
Ability/Function:This projectile is shaped like a short harpoon, a thick metal bar with a sharp point and backwards facing barbs. Attached to the back of the weapon itself is a smooth metal chain that can be broken with A-rank jutsu. The wire is connected to a metal plate that stays in place in the back of the empty cylinder once fired, and can retract the harpoon towards itself at a speed of 30 meters a second. The harpoon itself can impale up to 3 inches, and can stab into bone if struck, and can be yanked out in one post with a strength of S-rank, each rank below that taking an additional post to remove. If the harpoon is not removed, whatever was struck will be pulled towards the puppet at a speed of 15 meters a second. A strength of B-rank slows the movement to 10 meters a second, A-rank 5 meters a second, and s-rank or higher can use enough force to resist being pulled in.
Appearance:a short harpoon shaped metal projectile, maybe 18 cm in length with several backwards facing barbs.
History: “stop running”

Rysano

avatar

Genin
Rysano could feel the waves of anger pulsating from his foe. Sasori was clearly too proud for his own good, and Rysano knew it. He had counted on the puppet being to eager to join the fight himself, and with just a bit of clever verbal prodding, Rysano had pushed him to the point of conviction. Above them the representation of the battle roiled and tossed as the action continued. Two of the targets had successfully defended themselves against Sasori’s opening salvo, and were now faced with another series of attacks. But Rysano’s focus was elsewhere as Sasori’s eyes snapped back to focus on him. Rysano could feel the emotion of the area shift from antagonistic anger to a smug resolve that seemed to say ‘You just watch me’.

The young medic had steeled himself for the worst outcome. He was not yet confident in his abilities against opponents of his own caliber, with someone like Sasori being completely out of the question. There was no way Rysano could stand up against him, his only goal would be to separate the connection between him and Nova. Even if it cost Rysano dearly, he had faith that his friend could at least stand against Sasori once she had been freed. However, it seemed that the plan he had formed and the jutsu he had prepared would not need to be enacted as Sasori broke the tense silence. “I will let her be. For the time.” As the words floated throughout the abyss around them, Sasori snapped one final movement from Nova before finally releasing the strings that bound her. Watching the chakra wires slowly disappear from her body, Rysano nearly collapsed to his knees in relief, but he stood tall and remained stoic as he watched the puppet turn the opposite direction and take off into the darkness. Sasori’s body would deform the wall as Rysano had done when he arrived and slowly phase through it, removing himself from view.

Rushing to Nova’s side as her form fell to the ground, he would perform a quick examination of her body to make sure she had not been physically injured by the ordeal she had just gone through. Checking her vital signs and breathing, Rysano concluded the lavender-haired woman, who had recently taken him under her wing, was not in any immediate danger health-wise. He would carefully lift her into his arms and carry her toward the edge of her prison. He had succeeded in what he came to do, but he was still unsure of how he would return the two of them to the physical world. Coming here was a gamble all on its own, and now he would have to see if it would pay off. Clutching the girl against his chest Rysano would slowly enter the inky barrier as he had seen Sasori do moments before.

Once again Rysano felt the weightless sensation overtake him as all light was extinguished. Even though he could not see, he could feel Nova’s body still in his arms, feel her steady breathing, and he clutched tighter to make sure he didn’t lose her in the darkness. They both needed to return to the desert. A few minutes passed as they floated in the absolute darkness, the silence surrounding them was oppressive. Finally Rysano was able to see the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel, and he closed his eyes as the pair hurtled towards it. When he opened his eyes a moment later, he was staring into the eyes of Nova, his hands still surrounding her face, as they lay inside her puppet Doku Tsuki. Surprised and relieved they had made it back in one piece, his jovial feelings were short lived as Nova broke the silence between them. “He... He is unsealed.”

As much as Rysano had hoped to avoid that outcome, he was not surprised Sasori had taken the opportunity to unseal his physical body to enter the battle above. They had traded one problem for another, but at least he now had a partner with which to overcome them. “I had a feeling that might happen, but I’m just glad I could get you back safe.” Rysano would attempt to wipe the sweat and hair from Nova’s forehead, the cramped quarters they resided in making this a terribly awkward motion. Noticing the apprehensive look on Nova’s face, he beamed the most reassuring smile he could at her. “Look, you know I can’t do much, but anything I can do to help you here, just tell me what to do.” He grasped Nova’s shoulders with each hand. “We’re in this together.”
