Spoiler:
Mission name: Greater Good.
Mission rank: S-rank.
Objective: Secure high-value targets.
Location: Any.
Reward: 2000 ryo + 5EP.
Mission Description: “Members of ANBU, high ranking shinobi, we entrust you with this missive knowing you will keep its secrets safe. The war which has escalated in Sunagakure is no coincidence or product of poor timing. Subversive elements discovered by our intelligence operatives suggests a must more deliberate plan. Seek out and capture the leaders of the resistance and bring them here, we will uncover the truth.”
Mission Details: Shinobi are tasked with seeking out and kidnapping leaders of Suna’s resistance movements and rogue groups so that they may be brought back to Konoha and properly interrogated. Targets are S-ranked shinobi NPCs with three elemental natures and all applicable library techniques. It is essential that the assigned leaders are not killed, but either captured, tricked, or otherwise convinced into captivity so they may be questioned. This can be taken as a ROOT mission by replacing the target with an S-rank Kumogakure shinobi NPC (Or A-ranked+ PC, B-ranked if they are an ANBU member) and completing the criminal mission requirements.

drawing on my fine command of language, i said nothing.

A cool evening had befallen the dilapidated Land of Wind. Chilly winds kissed the sand like gentle strokes of a brush across canvas, gentle yet consistent enough to leave tatters of cloth in a constant state of motion as they clung to the decrepit ruins of a settlement forgotten by time. Scavengers had long since picked the remains clean, plucking away every spoil that the surface had to offer. Yet something lurked beneath the sands, boasting no value to the typical scavenger but remarkable usefulness for an entire nation’s efforts against another.

The forces of Iwagakure were active and bustling beneath the ruins of Sakuikoi, utilizing extensive tunnels carved deep into sandstone and rock to disguise their efforts against the Land of Lightning. The mesa was shaped like a crescent, with the entrance of the base on the opposite end of the thin opening that leads into the desert. The mountain surrounding it were tall and their faces brittle like shale, which made scaling its surface a toilsome task. It was an ideal location for an ambush and Takao was sure that whoever approached would realize it immediately. Acting as a secondary relay base for sensitive information on the bolstering war efforts, the constituents had done their best to hide away from prying eyes, yet they had not quite succeeded. Their location may have been leaked to one of Kumogakure’s own bases of operation by what the operatives stationed there had assumed was one of their own. This assumed Kumogakure agent spoke of a base hidden within the footholds of a mesa that hosted an old ruin. It didn’t take long for intelligence operatives to narrow down the location, and thus dispatch a force to destroy it. But both sides were being played like a fiddle.

This scenario had been his doing from the beginning. Nearly a week of planning and manipulation had lead to the culmination of his efforts. He had impersonated an Iwagakure shinobi and spearheaded the construction of the base within the strategic bottleneck. Thus, he had set the stage to reveal its very location to Kumogakure, and lure out whatever shinobi they deemed capable of dealing with the base. Any shinobi that they deemed capable of eradicating the base had a chance of possessing the small nuggets of information he sought. Even if he didn’t succeed in his attempts and Kumogakure succeeded in destroying the relay base, Takao would still benefit from Iwagakure’s loss of resource and manpower.

Takao lingered within the darkness of a shallow cavern in the surface of the mesa; the low sun had cast a shroud of long shadows over the mountain face, cloaking the many small caverns and dips in the brittle stone. The black cloak draped over his shoulders aided in the effort of remaining unseen and unheard, whilst his armour-clad torso jammed low end sensory techniques that might have searched for a trace of chakra. Aibāningu had been flickering on and off in strategically calculated intervals, scanning the horizon for approaching shinobi. The reflective tint of his mask kept the shimmering glow of his smoldering gaze from prying eyes, ensuring that his own manner of sensory did not give off his position. The night would shroud the vast deserts of Kaze no Kuni before long, and the warm glow of evening would fade into the cool tones of twilight. It would benefit him more for his prospective targets to appear after the sun had set, but he was prepared regardless. One last check of the blade housed on his arm and a quick visual inventory of his shinobi equipment marked the reassurance of his preparedness, thus the only thing left to do was wait.

Times in Sunagakure were hard, even for the generally well organised Kumo-nin. That much became clear when Mizuki was summoned for an S-rank mission. Investigating a hidden base holding sensitive information, possibly compromised. Not a mission to be taken lightly. In fact, not one she had agreed to without sharing her thoughts on the matter. She was a special jounin and thus technically not qualified for such a job. Yet Administration set their foot down and were not willing to budge even a single inch on the matter. She was to accept that mission, believing that she'd be just fine considering she had travelled the world in name of Hastur as a chuunin, struggled through the assault on Sunagakure and had lived. Hardly a mission she personally considered S-rank worthy but the kunoichi had little means to counter the facts thrown on the table since it wasn't the first time she had been doing missions above her rank. Granted, there had always been a chaperone perfectly able to keep her safe but that detail seemed to deliberately be disregarded now.

Understanding that there was no point in debating their decision much longer, Mizuki bowed and agreed to undertake the mission before she left for her personal tent. Good preparation for this mission would be of the utmost importance, but the main reason for her visit was mostly for a peculiar attire she had taken along that once had belonged to her father. The tailor had adjusted the length to her own size several month ago, making it so it fit her shorter posture, but even then one would easily believe its wearer to be male rather than female. Her father had never explained his reasons for keeping it around, nor had she ever seen him wear it. Mizuki had suspected it to be his ANBU outfit but the old man had never mentioned himself to be an ANBU. In fact, he had always opposed the idea of being one as it didn't fit the proper guardian he aimed to be - a guard had to be seen so he could draw the attention away from his protegee. The mask that went with that attire was a typical samurai's war mask. It depicted a demon with the intention to instil fear in the hearts of the samurai's opponent. An akuma on the battlefield. It would make the perfect outfit to pass as a Kumogakure ANBU and take on the role of a hidden strike force rather than the diplomat she generally was.

Changing into these clothes and donning the mask, the whole set fit perfectly. Under the attire she would wear her trusted body armour in protection of herself, her trusted katana 'Seiun' resting against her hips and ready to be drawn at a moments notice, while her longbow 'Artemis' and her quiver of arrows would be worn on her back. Taking one last look in the tall standing mirror before she left, she could see the imposing figure she had become despite the nervous feeling which crawled under her skin, tingling. Was she ready for this? Not really. But duty called and she'd answer. As such, 'Suzume', meaning sparrow, would join this mission today. Not much of an imposing name for someone supposed to be intimidating but the name inched more towards the embodiment of 'white lightning' moving through the battlefield rather than brute strength anyway. Under the command of the ANBU Myrddin, who was informed of her addition to the team for protective purpose, she would follow him along the road to this designated place.

The young shinobi was just about to lay down for some rest when he was asked to report to the deployment tent of the Kumogakure border camp, "not even back an hour and already thrown into another assignment." The boy said in a low grumble to himself as he headed for what he knew to be his next assignment, with a heavy sigh he opened the deployment tent and stepped inside. "Ah, Myrddin. I need you to take care of a matter for us, it seems that Iwa has set up a base that is dangerously close to our territory. We can not allow this base to stand as it could open up problems for us in the future. You are to lead a small strike force under the cover of night, destroy this base and report back with any information you and your squad acquires." The man said as the boy entered the tent. The man was standing over a table which held a map of the land of wind, marked with different bases and routes that were spread out across the land. "How did they get there without drawing our attention sooner?" The boy questioned as he looked upon the map to see the location of his target. "The information we have is incomplete it was reported to one of our forward bases by a scout, however it would seem that the scout redeployed as no one has seen him since his initial report. You are scheduled to rendezvous with your team here," the man added as he pointed to a marked location on the map. With a nod the young shinobi turned to headout of the tent to ready himself for his mission, however the man would have a few more words to say. "I think it goes without saying that if your operation fails and you or any of your squad is captured there can be no trace to lead it back to the hidden clouds. This mission is off the books, is that understood?" The young shinobi tightened his fist, yet controlled himself enough that the man would not notice, it was just like the hidden cloud to want nothing to do with something that could be considered bad publicity in the eyes of the other nations. The boy nodded once more before leaving the tent, heading for the rendezvous point to meet with the others going on the mission.

The sun was still high in the sky when the boy made it to the rendezvous point to await his team, causing the boy to wonder if he would have time for a quick nap before the start of his mission later that night. However thoughts of sleep were pushed from his mind the more he thought about the mission, there was something unsettling about the whole ordeal but the boy just could not place his finger on it aside from the fact that it was like all the other dark missions he had been sent on since his arrival here in the land of wind. The only difference was the fact that there would be others with him, this did not sit well with the boy as he preferred to work alone especially on dark missions such as this. However orders were orders and he knew better than to try and question them, considering the last time he had done so earned him three weeks of sixteen hour patrol duties. Something that he was not about to let happen to himself again. The boy had binoculars trained on the position of the mysterious base still in the distance as he waited, questions still running through his mind wondering how Iwa got so close to their territory without any notice as well as hundreds of other questions. As the sun began to set the boy put away his binoculars and placed his mask on his face, unlike the normal Anbu masks of Kumogakure the boy's mask was the visage of the Owl in a style of his own creation. The visage of the Owl was not meant to be feared, at least not when the boy first designed it. The young shinobi meant it to be a guardian of the night, the silent watcher of the village hidden in the clouds, however in the land of wind the visage of the owl held a very different and darker meaning. There were not many that had seen the Owl, at least not that lived, those that survived spoke only of the pure destruction left by the Owl and the lives it had claimed.

Once the others finally arrived at the rendezvous they could finally begin, "alright we all know our assignment let's get it done and over with." The boy stated, his voice distorted by his mask to sound like the voice of a young Suna refugee he had helped earlier that week. Without so much as another word, or waiting for confirmation from the other three the young shinobi turned and began heading for the base the four were set to destroy. Moving under the cover of the night sky would increase their chances of not being seen, however it would not totally hide them. As the four drew nearer to the mesa the boy would slow his pace, not by much but enough that he would be able to stop if he suddenly needed to find cover. The closer the group got to the mesa the more the unsettling feeling in the pit of the boy's stomach grew, something was not right about the situation but he could not put his finger on it.

you look like a SNAKE

Late evening had finally set upon the field in which they would do battle. The shadows were at their longest before the chilled grasps of night would overtake the desert, and the air had grown stagnant. A more spiritually attuned being might have felt a lingering sensation of discomfort in the air-- the kind of calm before the storm feeling that normal folks would shrug off, yet observant shinobi might pick up on. There was no real discernable rhyme or reason to it, just an odd feeling in the breeze that kept a careful shinobi on their toes. It was practically a given, considering the circumstances that brought them together.

Before night had taken hold of the desert, his quarries had arrived. Four of them, each wearing masks of varying description, yet he only needed one of them alive. His cup runneth over with choice. One out of the three was decorated ornately, with flashy robes and a mask that drew his attention. He considered the notion that perhaps this was intentional, as though they were some scapegoat for the others and it was intended to draw his attention. He shelved the possibility to be referenced later and observed them for a moment longer. The helmed shinobi noted their slowing pace, perhaps marking reluctance to enter a disadvantageous arena. That supposed reluctance gave him a much better idea than a simple once-over of their appearance ever could. Beyond preventing an easy escape, it didn’t host many advantages for himself either, thus the exact point in which they engaged didn’t truly matter.

He raised his hands and formed a single hand seal. More chakra spilled forth from his body, using it as a mould to create a perfect copy of himself from head to foot. He split his chakra and bestow the imitation with half of his energy, and presented it with sentience. More chakra leaked from his hand, enshrouding it with the magical essence, before the clone’s hands rose and formed a sequence of seals itself. The very light around it bent and folded to the clone’s will, and it disappeared from Takao’s sight. As Takao himself leaped down from the recess in the wall, the clone followed, and followed along in Takao’s footsteps. Whilst he walked, the masked shinobi’s hands came together and formed a brief sequence of three hand seals, and allowed for his chakra to leak out and wash over his skin like waves cresting over a beach. The chakra hardened and blackened into scales hidden beneath his clothing and mask.

Takao’s saunter took in out of the crescent mesa and into the open desert, a much more preferable arena for his manner of fighting. His gaze settled on the four figures as they approached from the distance, his presence bore to them in its entirety, ensuring that he would not go unnoticed.

“Foreign scum,” Takao called out, his voice booming although distorted as it passed through the rebreather of his mask. “You are trespassing on official Iwagakure operations. Turn around now, or face the consequences!”

CHAKRA: 195/215
CLONE CHAKRA: 190/215

Techniques Used:
Used by Takao
Name: Shadow Doppelganger Technique (影分身の術 ~ Kage Bunshin no Jutsu)
Canon/Custom: Canon
Rank: B
Type: Supplementary
Element: None
Range: The clone can be created up to 6 meters away from the user.
Specialty: Ninjutsu
Duration: Until all clones are dispersed
Cooldown: Three posts after clones are dispersed.
Description: Shadow Doppelganger Technique creates up to 4 clones of the user. Unlike the regular Bunshin, these clones are actual copies, not illusions. The user's chakra is evenly distributed among every clone, giving each one an equal fraction of the user's overall power. Because they are created this way, even the Sharingan and Byakugan can't distinguish them from the original. The user of this technique must form a hand sign to create the clones, they cannot form them simply by will. The clones will be created in roughly the same physical condition as the original (wounds and buffs/debuffs/special effects present on the user are copied over upon creation); also, the user must equally divide their chakra among the clones, potentially using up all their chakra quickly if the user is low on chakra or makes too many clones. The clones are capable of performing techniques on their own and can even bleed. They can also disperse on the user's whim. A characteristic that is unique to the Shadow Clone Technique is that any experience the clones gain during their existence is transferred to the user once they are dispersed. This makes the technique ideal for spying, since the user can simply send a clone to spy on a target, then have the clone disperse itself without returning to pass the information back to the user. Anomalistically, Kagebunshin are immune to the paralytic effects of Genjutsu B-rank and below. The user regains the chakra the clone had if and only if s/he disperses it of his/her own will; it takes a 1 post prep to disperse.

When you create a shadow clone, your chakra is divided among it/them. For example, let's say you're a Chuunin with max chakra. Your current chakra, 200, would be reduced by 20 for the cost of the jutsu; you want to make 4 clones, so your chakra is divided by 5 (you + 4 clones). This gives each clone a fifth of your chakra. So, each clone would have 36 chakra. Being that they are shadow clones, they are each able to perform jutsu themselves; they have their own separate chakra pool, and also follow their own cooldowns for jutsu. Each Shadow Clone has a reserve of stamina; their individual chakra is reduced by an amount appropriate amount to the damage done (E-10, D-15, C-20, B-25, A-30, S-35). The clone automatically disperses when it runs out of chakra, or when hit by any attack that can cause a noteworthy level of physical damage [second/third degree burns, broken bones, stab wounds, etc] If the original uses a technique before creating the shadow clones, the remaining cooldown on the technique applies to all clones created.
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: Dragon Art: Body of Scales (Ryūdō: Sukēru no bodi ~ スケールのボディ)
Canon/Custom: Custom
Rank: A
Type: Defensive
Element: n/a
Range: Self
Specialty: Ninjutsu
Duration: Maintainable
Cooldown: Duration
Description: Body of Scales is a technique that requires three hand seals (Tiger → Rat → Dragon). Upon completion, the user bleeds chakra from their tenketsu, which harden in layers over the user's skin. This hardened chakra takes on the appearance of jet black scales, and cover the entirety of the user's body within a single post. The user sustains additional changes to their body as well: their ears are elongated, their eyes lose their pupil and iris and instead glow white, and their mouths glow a similar white while their teeth become sharp. These changes are cosmetic and serve no purpose beyond the aesthetic of the technique. These layers of scales are heavy, reducing the user's speed by -2 tiers. However, in return they grant superior protection, and allow the user to withstand up to two S-Rank, three A-Rank, and four B-Rank techniques, as well as an indefinite number of techniques of C-Rank and below.

Used by Clone
Name: Hiding with Camoflague Technique (迷彩隠れの術 - Meisaigakure no Jutsu)
Canon/Custom: Canon
Rank: B-A
Type: Supplementary
Element: N/A
Range: Self
Specialty: ROOT
Duration: Maintainable
Cooldown: 2x Maintained Duration
Description: The user flows chakra around themselves creating a skin-tight area of influence that bends light around them, isolating them from the natural world in order to hide them from the eyes of others. This technique when activated hides the user from natural sight, as well as conceals their scent due to the flow of chakra. However, it can be seen through with a doujutsu or sensory technique of equal rank or higher.


  • A Rank: If activated at A rank, the jutsu also bends the flow of chakra around them also, allowing them to be undetected by techniques or doujutsu of A rank or lower that would sense the user's chakra.

The squad of four would halt and watch for a moment, assessing the situation. The crescent mesa was quiet. Too quiet. The sort of quietude that could only be followed by a sudden explosion of chaos. The sort the Lady of Storms knew well. But to pinpoint the origin of this tension was a different story as it wasn't hers, the common feeling shared by every person known and unknown currently present almost palpable. What was going on, exactly? Had they already been spotted and were people waiting to see who would move first? No matter. The one known as Myrddin would speak up, indicating to move on with the task at hand. He'd instantly move after he had spoken, and Suzume would follow him closely as she believed it was better to always be with two at least, matter of having each other's back. Their mission being the destruction of this base, she wondered how to go about this. She had a couple of lethal techniques at her disposal but nothing of the sort that could blow up a base or even a section of it. Nothing explosive or intended for mass destruction as she was more of a duellist than a saboteur.

Their stealth infiltration would be discovered soon, a man standing out in the open rather than in the base. Depending on the alertness of the Iwa-nin inside, the group could potentially be caught between to sides - a tactical disadvantage. But what bothered Suzume most of all was the fact that they had not spotted the man on patrol when they just came to pass the open of the desert. Without any stealth techniques, he would not have been able to hide his presence. She was off a mind herself that sending in two members of the team to finish the job while leaving two others to occupy this man might not be the worst of options but the scales and the draconian appearance he had taken on told her he was expecting them to engage him. Much like her own outfit intended to draw attention, his preparations reeked of a trap. But did they have any other choice though?

"He's expecting us, Myrddin. Your call?"

The unsettling feeling that something was wrong about the whole situation revealed itself when a lone man exited the entrance of the Mesa. The man's words rang across the open desert to the group, his words suggested that he was challenging them. It was obvious that he must of been a look out or some how sensed their approach to have been able to find them in the dark of the night, but everything about the situation began screaming to the young Anbu that something was amiss. If he had been a look out for this base why was it just him coming out as the welcoming committee, why had he not alerted the rest of the base and a full platoon sent to stop them. Unless of course he had, was it possible that this man was meant to be a distraction while the rest of them got into position or was there something much darker than the night at work here. Thoughts raced through the boy's mind until his train of thought was interrupted by the woman known as Suzume, the boy was not use to being in this sort of situation. Being in command was not something the boy enjoyed or did often, something that the other anbu caught up on by his hesitation. "We don't have time for this, the man is going to alert the whole based to our presence if he has not already." One of the Anbu stated as he formed a quick string of handseals, "there is no chakra presence. He is alone we must strike now." The two Anbu took off towards the man before Myrddin could even think of objecting, but it was then that it hit the young Anbu that there would not be a chakra signature if the man and if he had a team his team were Anbu as well. "This doesn't feel right," the boy said aloud though it was mostly to himself as he began flowing his chakra into the air around him, they may be able to hide their chakra but not their movements the boy thought to himself as he extended his range of his wind sense to the maximum. The boy had been right it was not just the man but another presence there with him, hidden some how from sight but there was no hiding the disturbance the person was creating through the air. "It's a trap, there's more than one." The boy called out but the Anbu were either to far ahead to hear him or simply ignored his warning as they did not stop their advancement onto the man. "We have to help them," the boy said to Suzume before taking off after the two Anbu.

The two Anbu were faster than the boy and already had a sizeable lead in their advancement, they would be upon the man in a matter of seconds but the boy would not let that stop him from moving as fast as he could. As he moved he began channelling his chakra through his body and to his core, there would be a fight and he had to ensure to be at his best or he would fall. He was still on alert for any other movement that might give away the position of other potential threats but his main focus was on that of the two that the other Anbu were unknowingly about to engage. In the pale moon light the boy saw a flood of water spew forth from one of the Anbu, followed quickly by a flash of light from the second. The boy was not close enough to aid in their attack and could only hope that they could handle the man and his hidden comrade, or at least not fall before he reached them.

The First being that unlike normal Fūton Based Techniques which are invisible, Raphael's Fūton Based Techniques have a Silver glow to them making them visible to the naked eye. The second is that his Fūton Based Techniques seems to weaken Katon Based Techniques rather than fuel them by removing the oxygen that powers them from its wake. Katon based techniques that clash with Raphael's Fūton Based Techniques do not receive the +1 Rank boost they would normally receive when clashing with a Fūton Based Technique.

Range: C =30m, B =75m, A=250m
Specialty: Ninjutsu
Duration: Maintainable (-5 chakra per turn)
Cooldown: Duration +2 posts
Description: Created by the Kozai as a way to stay aware of their surroundings, channeling their chakra throughout their body and then releasing it to saturate their surroundings, mixing it with the air allowing them to perceive subtle shifts or vibrations in the air. This chakra is subtle and cannot been seen or detected by the naked eye, through this the user is able to greatly increase their awareness of their surroundings. Anything passing through this air field disrupting it will cause a disturbance with the chakra alerting the user, allowing the user to detect approaching threats. This jutsu does not allow them to see what it is that disrupted the air only alerts them to movement within the area of the jutsu. However they are able to sense a general idea of what it is based on the size of the disruption within the air, letting them know where the movement is coming from and how fast it is moving and which direction its moving, they call this hypersensitivity.

Hypersensitivity
The Kozai's attunement with the air around them is so strong that it gives them the ability to perceive subtle shifts and vibrations in the air around them, giving them split-second increase to their reaction time. At C-Rank reaction time is boosted by +1 this increases at A-Rank to a +2, while this jutsu is active at any rank the user suffers a -1 to their strength.

This jutsu does not sense chakra, but movement, even an invisible opponent (or one who had their chakra suppressed) would be detected if they moved within the range of the jutsu. (The air must be disturbed in order for the movement to be detected, shadows that move along the ground but do not interact in the air cannot be detected, this also includes jutsu that allow the user to move underground)

”Very well.”

There was something about the four that Takao immediately recognized as weakness. They did not act as a unit, nor were their actions committed with synergy of one another. Beneath the mask that flawlessly shrouded his visage, a wicked smile grew. Two of the four charged despite the warnings of the third, and unleashed a myriad of multi-elemented attacks upon his person. Unhindered by any outside force, the pops and crackles of Burning Ambition were lit aflame at his back. He jumped and maneuvered around the crashing waves of water with minimal effort, and utilized practiced and well-placed jets of flame to propel himself up and around the flash of lightning that soared past him and slammed into the fragile mesa. As Takao lingered above them in the air, his body flipped legs-over-head and a deep inhale flooded his lungs with air and chakra.

Within a mere second of leaping over their techniques and the ANBU operatives themselves, Takao exhaled a tsunami of flame over their heads, barreling down upon them with less than a second before the swathe of fire washed over the sands. Twenty meters of high-pressure flames threatened the pair with an instant and painless death should it collide with them, and time to react was certainly against them. The same crackling jets of flame began to manifest behind his shoulders, preparing for another burst of movement.

Having heard one of the quartet’s declaration that telegraphed his realization that Takao was not alone, the clone decided to act rather than wait idly by. He had two targets to strike that were unoccupied by the original, and thus he chose the one who had not declared that he was alone. Perhaps the one with the conspicuous outfit had no way of seeing him, yet it didn’t matter much if they did in the end, for his choices would be indifferent in either scenario. Unseen and unheard, the clone moved forward from its standing position and rapidly approached Mizuki. When it was within twenty five meters of her, it acted. A huff of breath inhaled and exhaled in rapid succession expelled a large globule of wind release chakra. Even in the evening light, the distorted haze of the technique was visible as it tore across the sands at fifty meters a second, threatening Mizuki with a technique capable of inflicting lethal wounds that appeared from nowhere.

The clone was able to effortlessly exhale the impressively dense mass of oxygen and chakra without so much as skipping a beat, and continued on in its advance toward Mizuki. Still invisible to the naked eye, it kept a safe distance from Mizuki, whose abilities he had yet to witness and analyze firsthand. The clone moved around to her right side and stood at her five o’clock nearly twenty meters away, beginning to encroach on her position as she reacted to the ball of wind.

Whilst the real Takao sustained the jet of flames from his agape maw through the mask’s rebreather, his gaze befell the masked visage of Myrddin. Only he had demonstrated the ability to see the clone, and thus maintaining his attention and keeping him distracted may provide his clone with openings whilst the two were incapable of communicating. Thus, Takao’s left arm withdraw two kunai from the pouch on his left leg and fired them at the Kumogakure shinobi. A pair of tags violently writhed in the wind as the heavy metal blades cut through the air, timing their flight so that one would arrive a second after the other, and both would explode when they came within reach of Myrddin.

Name: Fire Release: Burning Ambition (Katon: Atsuho Hōfu ~ 火遁・熱歩抱負)
Canon/Custom: Custom
Rank: A
Type: Supplementary-Offensive
Element: Fire Release
Range: User
Specialty: Ninjutsu-Taijutsu
Duration: Maintainable
Cooldown: Duration
Description: Fire Release: Burning Ambition is a fire release technique that heavily augments the user's mobility using high-speed ejection of high pressure fire akin to jet propulsion, allowing them to move at speeds up to an additional +30m/s of their maximum burst speed. These jets can manifest anywhere on the user, allowing them to quickly dodge attacks or rapidly maneuver themselves within a 3d space as opposed to 2d. When used to climb vertically, the user is only capable of reaching heights of 30 meters above the ground before the propulsion becomes unstable and too difficult to control. This is not sustained flight, however, as it only occurs in bursts. It can also be used to quickly increase the speed of a strike depending on where the jets are manifested. Although not the intended purpose of the technique, the plumes of flames produced by the jets can inflict moderate first degree burns and set fabric alight on contact. Each post that this technique is used reduces the user's speed by 1 tier (up to -2 tiers after 2 posts) for 2 posts after the technique is ended.
Name: Fire Style: Majestic Destruction Flames (火遁・豪火滅却 ~ Katon: Gōka Mekkyaku)
Canon/Custom: Canon.
Rank: S.
Type: Offensive.
Element: Katon.
Range: 70 meters
Specialty: Ninjutsu
Duration: Instantaneous
Cooldown: 13 posts
Description: The user inhales deeply for a few seconds as they form the Horse, Tiger and Dog Hand Seals before exhaling a stream of fire. This stream will rapidly expand, forming a gigantic wall of flames that advances forward until it reaches its maximum range, at which point it simply dissipates. The user must maintain exhaling the stream while they perform this technique otherwise the wall will simply fade. Whatever crosses this technique's path will be turned to ash in an instant. The wall of flames is twenty meters wide, a meter thick and 10 meters high. It travels forwards at 35 meters per second.

Rank: A
Type: Offensive
Element: Fūton
Range: 30 meters
Specialty: Ninjutsu
Duration: 1 post
Cooldown: 7 posts
Description: A stronger version of the Wind Release: Vacuum Sphere technique. The user compresses the entirety of the large breath they take in, and expels it in the form of one large (5 meters in diameter) sphere at 50 m/s. Anyone caught inside it without protection will suffer rapid, painful lacerations all over their body and can be dismembered, if they don't escape it within seconds. Indirect contact with the sphere will result in cuts up to 3.5 inches deep to the area affected. It does not explode on impact, but rather continues, shredding everything that it comes into contact with. The sphere dissipates after moving 30 meters.

Raiu Mizuki

Jounin
Behind the mask of the akuma, Suzume would twitch at the blind recklessness of the two companions rushing in without any proper assessment of the situation. The Lady of Storms, disciplined and seemingly always at the eye of the very storms she represented, was perhaps too cautious considering her diplomatic nature but lacking any proper insight in the abilities of her team mates she felt herself at a disadvantage despite having superior numbers over the man in the distance. That feeling was only confirmed more when Myrddin stated he wasn't alone. One or more others were hidden from sight. Not having had any training as an ANBU or even remotely as a guard worth her salt, the kunoichi ever on the road to maintain relations with other Villages had never needed much more than her own eyes. And that was costing her now at this very moment on top of being dropped into a mission that wasn't quite her niche.

To make matter worse, the two charging shinobi would be opposed by a mass of flames Suzume had yet to experience in life. The ease with which this man used his katon, and the massive amount of flames he could spit forward, along with the speed and reflexes he revealed instantly told her that he was far from a special jounin. It was clear as daylight that this man was a jounin with a healthy dose of expertise. Suzume would feel her hair raise up as the disadvantages on the ANBU team's end only seemed to staple with every passing second.


"Hesitation is the seed of destruction, Mizuki. When you strike, strike without doubt. If you kill, kill with clarity in mind and purpose."


The words of her father's training ringing in her mind would be like the wake-up call she needed to get to action. Forming a Dog hand seal in anticipation of following right after Myrddin, her own defensive measures would take place as her breath allowed a cloud of suiton to cover her body. Channelling the essence of her kenjutsu training as she was about to run after Myrddin, the bare hints of movement would be caught in the corner of her eyes as sand was ploughed up by an invisible force. Still moving toward Myrddin, she'd turn her head to see what was coming in, only to see nothing as the timing of the clone to her spotting the movement of sand was impeccable, halting the sand's back-stabbing revelation while no wind would carry forth his scent. Unfortunately, when he breathed in deeply for his own technique he would also betray his position despite the invisibility as his technique would not cloak his interaction with the loose sand of the world nor his sound.

"One invisibility confirmed.", she'd shout in declaration of the clone's presence before the fuuton technique would stride forward at incredible speed. The sheer power of the technique was terrifying to behold, its fuuton nature apparent and driving Suzume to alter her barrier's nature in response at the whim of her will. Too fast in its advance to do much else, the technique would brutally crash against Suzume's barrier and come to pass without breaking her defences. Not having had the time to alter her directions and frankly not having intending to do so either at first. The distortion of the fuuton jutsu having cloaked the clone's cautious movement, the sand dead still again as it stood still again, Mizuki's eyes had lost track of his presence.

Two kunai would then be thrown in her direction out of the blue at twenty meter distance, the kunai posing no danger to her as they were not backed by sufficient strength to break the still active defences of the masked warrior. However, rather than to linger around and wait for the thrown weapons to hit her or offer the tags the chance to explode right in her face, Mizuki would channel raiton in her feet and burst forward at a 35 m/s. As she shot forward, a set of half-hand seals would follow, right hand resting on her katana and relying on her iaijutsu training to execute a single strike at the clone as she moved forward to his last registered position.

If her counter-offensive would hit the invisible presence, a single strike would suffice to cleave an unprotected individual in twain. If not, she would end 15 meters behind the clone, and proceed with her way direction Myrddin and Takao by circling around their interaction area to end in the visible Takao's flanks. The clone would not be forgotten, however...

Having Kaminari blood from her mother's side and being taught her father's Heaven Sword Style has improved her understanding of Raiton (and indirectly the Raiu's Storm Release as well), allowing Mizuki's affinity for Raiton chakra to bloom into a new form.

Description:
With a single Dog hand seal, the user breathes out a brief cloud of raindrops that settles around his body. While looking as if it only wets the body, the chakra effectively grants a layer of solid suiton chakra which continuously flows around him and leaves behind a clammy, humid feeling. Much like natural water, even a thin body of water is enough to soak a massive impact. The jutsu is able to block three C rank jutsu, two B rank jutsu or one A rank jutsu.

For an additional 5 chakra cost, the user can add raiton chakra to this jutsu to make it a Ranton element instead.

Type: Supplementary
Element: None
Range: Self
Specialty: Bukijutsu (Kenjutsu)
Duration: Maintained, 5 chakra/post
Cooldown: Duration + 3 posts
Description:
"Stance of Heaven and Earth" - Based on the philosophy of the 'no-blade', 'void' or 'Ring of Heaven', the user draws back the natural reliance on the sight perception in favour of a balanced use of all senses, including the mystical sixth sense.
This 'all-sense' allows the user to ignore any sort of handicap (such as blindness, deafness, numb...) to the senses he may suffer, to a certain extend. While the jutsu doesn't remove the actual disabling of the senses, the remaining senses will work harder to substitute the missing perception - Physically, mentally or illusory tricks, it matters not how the drawbacks to the senses were applied.

This jutsu requires no hand seals.
* If one sense has been disabled: the user suffers no drawbacks in perception as the other five senses substitute for the lost perceptive sense.
* If two senses have been disabled: the user suffers a -1 to perception but can otherwise still act perfectly.
* If three senses have been disabled: the user suffers a -1 to perception and -1 to reaction as the jutsu is losing its efficiency and requires more from the user's senses in return.
* If four or more senses have been disabled, this jutsu fails its use.
D Rank Astral Technique - Celestial Step:

Name: Astral Technique - Celestial Step: Blur of the Milky Way
Canon/Custom: Custom
Rank: D
Type: Utility
Element: Raiton | Suiton | Ranton
Range: Self
Specialty: Ninjutsu
Duration: Maintained, 5 chakra/post
Cooldown: Duration x 1.5 posts
Description: Based on the Supernatural Walking Technique, this technique coats the user's body with chakra to create the same 'sticking' effect while granting a second effect depending on the element used.

Raiton: Grants a 15 m/s speed boost while maintained.
Ranton: Bright light cloaks the user, preventing identification. While better perception can't pierce through the bright light (it makes the blinding worse), tracking by sight/sensory is done with a +1 rank effectiveness.
Suiton: A fog surrounds the user in a 3m radius, masking his actual position. C-3 rank perception may see a silhouette in the fog, but details remain shrouded and continue to deny identification.

The user may switch the technique's element once per post for 5 chakra.
A Rank Heaven Sword Style - Heaven Torn Asunder:

Name: Heaven Sword Style - Heaven Torn Asunder
Canon/Custom: Custom
Rank: A
Type: Offensive
Element: None | Raiton
Range: Melee
Specialty: Bukijutsu (Kenjutsu)
Duration: Maintained, 10 chakra/post
Cooldown: Maintained + 3 posts
Description: After forming the half-Tiger - half-Horse - Seal of Confrontation hand seals, the user infuses his blade with chakra so as to empower his strikes. Based on the principle of thunder and lightning, this technique mimics either the thunder by creating a delayed double of the slash, or the lightning by infusing the blade with raiton chakra to improve its cutting power.

Non-Element: As thunder, every swing is the herald of a second, delayed attack of equal power as the first basic strike. The delay occurs a few seconds later, thus within the same post. While this may not give a tremendous advantage against defensive jutsu (this technique counts as a single A rank jutsu when colliding), it does grant the ability to deal more efficiently with a single target by inflicting twice the same damage or breaking through his basic defences. This is a sound-based technique.

Raiton: As lightning, the blade harbours its destructive energy, allowing it to cut/pierce directly through individuals and rock alike. Should wounded targets survive its power, they will be left behind with minor 3rd degree burn wounds there where the blade cut/pierced them, the wounds cauterised by the burning effect of the raiton chakra.
Items:

1x 'Seiun':

Name: Seiun
Type Of Weapon: Katana
Rank: A
Elemental Alignment: None
Quantity: 1
Ability/Function: The katana inflicts standard A rank katana damage: It is able to cut/pierce 3.5 inch (~8.90 cm) deep, but not through bones.

Appearance: [x] [x]
The blade spans 72 cm (28.35 inch) from tip to the base of the tsuba, is hand-crafted by a Kumogakure master smith, and enchanted by a yamabushi. While made of the best steel, the blade has gained an astral purple colour of varied hues as it got enchanted, complimenting the metallic shine of steel perfectly. Near the tsuba, gold engraved kanji tell its name - "Seiun" (Nebula). The hilt spans 20 cm (8 inch) and is tightly wrapped in white ray skin and bound by a high quality purple cotton cord. The scabbard has been dyed ink black to imitate the night sky, and has soberly been decorated with a silver engraving of the Raiu clan kamon, as well as being provided a similar purple cotton cord as the one around the hilt.

History:
As a testament to her bukijutsu skill, Mizuki wanted to improve upon her old trusted katana by adding a more personalised touch and attuning it to her own chakra nature. Only expecting the best, she first went to see the better smith in Kumogakure, honouring him with the request to forge her a high quality katana. He returned her a well-crafted and balanced katana, just a tiny little longer than the one she was used to, forged from the best materials he could procure.
Not satisfied just yet, Mizuki wandered into the mountains between Kumogakure and Iwagakure to find a reputed yamabushi that could complete this master piece. Months passed as he finished the katana, observing her as she did countless tasks for him, so he could craft a weapon in her image. The result became the katana now known as "Seiun", meaning Nebula.

Myrddin

avatar



A tinge of fear ran through the boy's body at the sight of the actions of the man, not only had this man been able to dodge the Anbu's attacks but incinerated them in the process as well. It was not just the man's action that surprised the boy, but also the speed at which he did it. Even with his wind sense active the boy could not keep up with the man's movement, it was astonishing to the boy to see but at the same time he could not help but feel the fear creeping up upon him. The invisible presence that had been shadowing the man took off from it's position while the man gave breath to the fire in mid air. At first the boy assumed the invisible man or woman was coming towards him, but in fact the movement of it suggested that it was trying to make sure to avoid him. Perhaps the invisible person was trying to flank him from behind while his attention was on that of the man, if that was their plan they would be sorely mistaken. It wasn't until the boy sensed the path of the invisible man was on a direct course with movement behind him that the boy remembered that he was not alone, the woman Suzume was behind him and the invisible assailant was on a collision course with her. Myrddin turned his head so that he could give her warning, but before he formed the words he heard her voice. She was aware of the invisible man, that was a good thing. After the bumble with the two anbu he had thought he had been strapped with a sounder of incompetence, but it seemed that at least one of the sounder was capable of handling herself.

The boy's attention quickly drawn back to the man as he felt the disturbance caused by the man's movement. When he first saw the Kunai his first instinct was to knock them away, however the sight of the paper attached to them quickly changed his mind. The young Anbu leaned backwards to the point that he was balancing on nothing but the heels of his feet, having to only roll his shoulder down in the process to allow both of the Kunai and the paper attach to them pass over him without touching them. As the papers flew by the boy saw ink marks on the paper, his initial thought of them being paper bombs confirmed making the boy glad he dodged them. Had he tried to block them or knocked them away or offered any resistance to their trajectory the would have exploded on impact. With the threat of the paper bombs pass, the boy would twist spinning on his heels in a complete three sixty until he was back upright and facing the man once again. As he twisted the boy pulled his Kaminari Steel windmill shuriken from its holister on his back, opening it in one swift motion in mid turn and launching it with a flick of his wrist at the man in front of him as he finished his spin. The boy began channeling chakra through his body as he began accessing the situation, Suzume was dealing with the invisible man and the man in front of him had already taken out two of his comrades. The man was by far the biggest threat at least for the time being, and after seeing the man dispatch the two Anbu the boy knew he needed to keep the man at a distance. The only problem was that the boy was much better in close quarters than he was at a distance, however since the situation demanded it the boy would simply have to adapt.

Seconds after he had launched his windmill shuriken the boy launched a small series of strikes, a kick followed quickly by two punches that the boy would flow on the wind. These strikes would not only traverse the fifteen meter distance he was from the man at thirty five meters a second, but his projection of wind also allowed him to strike the man from different angles. Because of the speed that the wind carried the strikes, the strikes would reach the man before the shuriken, despite the shuriken having been launched first. The kick would strike the man on his left side, if this strike hit its mark the man would become stunned making it so he could not dodge the punches nor the windmill Shuriken. The first punch would strike the man square in the chest while the second would hit him in the gut, if either one of the punches hit the man they would cause a ripple that would cause the man to be propelled forward straight towards the incoming windmill shuriken.

The boy kept his senses open for any surprises that the man or his invisible comrade might throw at him, as well for any sign that Suzume might need help, ready to react at a seconds notice.

Name: Substitution Technique (変わり身の術 ~ Kawarimi no Jutsu) -5 Chakra
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: Kaze no tōei (風の投影 ~ Projection of Wind) -20 Chakra
Canon/Custom: Custom
Rank: C-A
Type: Supplementary
Element: Fūton
Range: 5m / 10m / 15m
Specialty: Nin - Taijutsu
Duration: Maintainable
Cooldown: Maintained Duration x2
Description: The user upon activation creates a vacuum around their hands or feet, storing a large amount of high pressure wind within them and interlacing it with their active chakra. Once per post with each of their hands or feet they're able to release the stored air into a high pressure burst of wind with their attacks that are no larger or wider than the user's fist or foot, and can be projected as up to 180 degree arcs or direct blows. Effectively extending the range of their Taijutsu attacks at speeds of 15 / 25 / 35mps depending on the rank it's activated at. Impact with this vacuum is considered a basic attack  and not a jutsu for the purposes of interacting with other jutsu and deals no more damage than the user's basic attacks equal to the maximum of the rank uses even if the users stats go above that (if used at C-Rank the maximum damage from a basic strike would be C-3 damage, etc). However, as the wind projections contain the user's active chakra, they may also contain the effects of other maintained Taijutsu techniques active at the time of their projection dealing that jutsu's damage. Due to the fact that this projection is made from Futon Chakra it is invisible to the naked eye making it harder for an opponent to dodge, those with chakra seeing abilities will be able to see the chakra infused attack.

If activated at A rank, the user can pay an additional 5 chakra per projection after the first to allow them to perform multiple projections in a single post. -10 Chakra for 2 additional attacks

Takao

𝌊

Their communication between one another was paramount to victory, yet still did sow the seed that would be their defeat. Both Takao and his own clone knew that they were both aware of the latter’s presence, which removed any necessity to take special care in hiding and retaining stealth. Of the pair, only the more glamorously dressed seemed to lack the ability to accurately pinpoint the clone’s location, and thus made her the best opponent for it to fight. She may have been able to determine its original location by the sound of his breath, but the intricacies of his movement would largely be lost on her without any means to otherwise track his shrouded movements.

The clone’s reaction to her speed was initially impressed, but not outpaced, nor outmaneuvered. Before the Kumogakure Shinobi had even begun to approach, the clone had started to move, and its actions were twofold. Firstly, it shed its cloak and tossed it out from the protection of Hiding in Camouflage with the intent of drawing Mizuki’s attention to the large, obscure mass of moving cloth that appeared from thin air. Secondly, in the same throwing motion, it ducked under the swing of the blade and spun counterclockwise in her direction. The clone’s leg fanned out and thrust forward, threatening to slam into her midsection and stop her advance even if the strike did not transfer damage. Simultaneous with the kick, the breath within the clone’s lungs was inhaled, and with the oxygen that was exhaled came the burning imagery of a Chinese dragon’s head bathed in flames. It shot forth toward Mizuki from nearly point-blank range, and spanned a distance of 5-meters wide by 8-meters long.

The clone’s gaze drifted sidelong to the battle of its original counterpart, if only to keep track of the happenings of the battlefield. Myrddin’s evasive maneuver was skilled in dodging the blades, and had it not been for Takao timing the explosions to arrive when they were within range, he would have avoided their wrath entirely. Unfortunately for Myrddin however, Takao had timed his explosive tags. The distance between the two had been calculated and the timing of the tags was mere academy-level mathematics disguised as gut experience. The pair of tags exploded within a second’s succession of one another as they passed above Myrddin, threatening inadequately defended skin and muscle with second-degree burns and notable impact.

The flames vomited from Takao’s agape maw were no longer fed by his chakra, and had adequately reduced the pair of Kumogakure ANBU down into a fine ash the very instant the unfortunate souls came within range. With his sights now set fully on Myrddin, Takao offered the man no reprieve, and moved quickly to intercept any further action following the recovery from the explosive tags. Jets of flame manifested and erupted behind Takao’s body, allowing him to move through the air with impressive, yet-to-be matched speed. He traversed the negligible distance between himself and Myrddin with inexorable haste, and raised his right leg up high from a mere four meters above the Kumogakure ANBU. Another pair of jets forced his body downward and threw him into rapid descent onto Myrddin, endangering him with a powerful ax-kick styled strike to the cluster of nerves front and center in the abdomen; the celiac plexus. Secondary jets were prepared in the palms of his hands, prepared to maneuver himself if needed, yet pressurized force had not yet been added to the flames as they merely remained idle.

CHAKRA
Takao: 140/215
Clone: 130/215

Summary:
Mizuki-
Cloak was disrobed and thrown as a distraction as the clone rotates counterclockwise and aims a kick at her midsection, simultaneously evading the sword.
In synchrony with the kick, the clone exhales Great Dragon Flame at Mizuki, traveling 35m/s from near-point blank range.

Myrddin-
Myrddin ducks under the pair of kunai that were set to explode within range of him, thus resulting in failure to adequately evade them and the kunai explode on-target.
Takao utilizes the opportunity provided by the kunai that would have interrupted further action from Myrddin to strike him directly, using Burning Ambition to close the distance between them and launching an ax-kick styled basic attack aimed at his celiac plexus.
Techniques Used:
TAKAO
Burning Ambition maintained.
Body of Scales maintained.

CLONE
Hiding in Camoflague maintained.

Canon/Custom: Canon
Rank: B

Range: Projectile can travel 40 meters.

Cooldown: 6 posts
Description: The user inhales deeply, flooding their throat with an immensely thick layer of chakra, which they hold for a few seconds. They then exhale this chakra, converting it into flames as it leaves their lips. The fireball takes the form of a Chinese Dragon Head (8m long x 5m high and wide) which flies towards the target at 35m/s. On impact, the fireball will conflagrate around the object it hit, devouring it in flames. These flames will cause major second-degree/minor third-degree burns over anything that makes contact.

Her opponent was learning. Throwing in his cloak to distract her. He already had the advantage of invisibility, basically ignored by the kunoichi relying on her other senses instead, but the cloak's size was sufficient to hide the sand that betrayed his general movement. Mizuki would not be brought to doubt, proceeding with her raiton strike only to realise that she had been slicing through thin air. Peculiar noise from sand shifting and wind being pushed aside from a body would be picked up too late to register the movement of an incoming kick, finding the invisible force slamming its legs against the suiton barrier that coated her. The impact backed with quite some strength, Mizuki would be knocked back across the sand, feet sliding over countless grains before she eventually halted after a couple of meters. Before being able to retaliate or reorient, flames would crash against her ranton barrier and consume the last bits of her bastion.

As the clone did not move, unknowingly distracted by the battle between Myrddin and Takao, Mizuki formed another set of hand seals. Katon, fuuton. Those had been the only elements so far she had taken note of and so a stronger version of her previous technique would take place. All the while it started to dawn to Mizuki how much effort the two seemed to take to hold Myrddin and Mizuki separated. Was the man wielding the flames of a dragon scared of dealing with the two of them? If he was a shinobi of Iwa, why was he toying with the ANBU rather than seeking reinforcements? Something felt off about this whole fight, but she couldn't put a finger on it.

However, since no further movement from the clone had been registered, Mizuki would once again make use of the same technique she had been using before, his breathing betraying his actual position at this short a distance. Standing at a 2m distance, she'd run forward, her speed enhanced by the raiton chakra and swipe her katana where had stood to spit his fire, striking at what would be his mid-riff. This time forcing him to step out of the wide swing of her strike if he didn't want end up cut in two. Not only would further movement allow her to keep track of him as his feet impacted the sand underneath, but the path ahead to the visible Takao would allow her to move on with her enhanced speed. If they intended to keep them separated, it would be her goal to break through.

Furthermore, she'd form another set of hand seals which would cloak a 5m radius in a thick layer of dark thunder clouds. If the clone and Takao would remain in its range, lighting would viciously lash at them since Mizuki was well aware of both their presences on the battlefield. If the clone would find himself within the clouds, his prison would be two-fold: his sight would be limited by the clouds thus offering Mizuki an easier way to move forward but he would also betray his presence even easier as the cloud and sand would swirl to make room for his mass, allowing the cloud to shoot him down even easier considering the minimal range between him and the clouds.

A rank - Oceanic Current, Great:

Name: Water Release: Great Oceanic Current
Canon/Custom: Custom
Rank: A
Type: Defensive
Element: Suiton | Ranton
Range: Self
Specialty: Ninjutsu
Duration: 3 posts
Cooldown: 5 posts
Description:
With a single Dog hand seal, the user breathes out a brief cloud of raindrops that settles around his body. While looking as if it only wets the body, the chakra effectively grants a layer of solid suiton chakra which continuously flows around him and leaves behind a clammy, humid feeling. Much like natural water, even a thin body of water is enough to soak a massive impact. The jutsu is able to block three B rank jutsu, two A rank jutsu or one S rank jutsu.

For an additional 5 chakra cost, the user can add raiton chakra to this jutsu to make it a Ranton element instead.
A Rank - Thunder Cloud Inner Wave:

Name: Thunder Cloud Inner Wave
Canon/Custom: Canon
Rank: A
Type: Offensive
Element: Ranton/Storm Release
Range: 20m radius
Specialty: Ninjutsu
Duration: Instant, 3 posts duration
Cooldown: 5 posts
Description:
The user generate a thick ring made of a dozen thunderclouds and electricity around him, defending himself under the idea 'offence is the best defence'. He can then use these clouds to fire powerful blasts of lightning at his enemies, and as an electrified perimeter, effectively prevent his enemies from getting close.

While the cloud is created in a 5 meter radius, all opponents within a 20m radius are assaulted by lightning strikes moving at 40m/s, effectively piercing right through unprotected bodies. While highly effective against clones, real shinobi may suffer deadly wounds as well if not being careful.

The thundercloud, being a cloud effect, requires A+ perception for every non-ranton user to even see the slightest of movement, while S+ perception may only see a blur within the clouds. Where the Byakugan suffers no hindrance, the Sharingan can only see a mass of chakra.
