The Chuunin Exams! They were finally here and as soon as those names lit up on that grand screen every shinobi knew what fate awaited them. It could be someone with the immense power of an ancient clan ready to seek revenge against their uncle's second cousin twice removed or perhaps a demon masquerading as an innocent cat, notably one contestant that Xiao had an eye on in the form of Sakamoto who he was sure had to be a vassal of some form of higher deity. The spider-nin had made peace with his own reality, his powers were simply not functioning at the current time and as it was he was no stronger than a simple civilian right now but it didn't stop him from holding the will of...water deep within his heart. He was not here for himself, nor to seek fame or glory, he was here for his friends as support for them and to meet the interesting people of the world. His old nindo was to guard Kirigakure at all costs but as time had progressed and greater unfortunate events transpired his nindo had drifted away in the storm of drama and left him only with an empty feeling and drifting feeling in which he had no idea just what his purpose or meaning was any longer. Perhaps afterwards he would seek this, but for the time being it was time to focus on the festivities as well as the tasks ahead. With no intention to succeed even in the first round but to still give it all his best Xiao Guan's demeanor was quite different to the other worrying or stressed students who were at their wits end, instead the little shinobi acted more as a tourist walking about and observing the unique genin of the varrying countries and especially hoping to sample their food and the variety of flavors they brought. He had a real love of the food from Kumogakure, the katsu they tended to make was particularly delicious and holding two katsunari on stick in between his knuckles he began to wander about the sparring area.

Not sure of who to fight, the blue haired girl who seemed to have abs upon her abs? The dark kumo nin who looked as if they had just escaped a war? That danged cat who was always walking around scratching making noise everyyywhere? He didn't truly know but he decided instead to simply do what he did best - talk. Standing in the center of the sparring area away from the genin who had scattered to the side lines in their own circles the spider nin cupped his hands into a makeshift megaphone and began to call out "Hoi! My name's Kyutai, you've probably heard of me and yes, the rumors are true. So because we start this fantastic festive function what was one of you leafs show me the will of fire eh?" he called out looking about trying his best to avoid the gaze of those he truly felt would kill him.

Kashiki sat on the edge of the sparring area, gasping a stick with three dumplings skewered on it in each hand. He ate at the dumplings, each one was filled with different meats and sauces, each one complimented the last. The first was pork filled and had a smoky flavor with a hint of barbecue. After scarfing that one down Kashiki began to eat the next one. This one was filled with coconut shrimp, the sweet glazed shrimp were delicious after the smoky spicy pork. The next was stuffed with sour and tangy teriyaki chicken. Kashiki finished the dumplings as a voice popped up from the middle of the arena. It was quite an annoying voice to be completely honest, and Kashiki pondered answering his request to get the snot beat out of him, but he didn't at first. After waiting a few minutes and seeing no one answer the pour genin Kashiki stood.

"I'll take you on, can't hurt to get a little bit more combat experience under my belt before the exams." Kashiki pulled off his poncho with one hand of his hands while his other rested on his sword. He tossed the poncho to the sidelines while flowing chakra into it to prepare for a substitution, before walking to the middle of the arena to stand and face the spider ninja.

"I'm ready when you are" Kashiki said, entering the fighting stance he was most regularly seen in, the back stance. The stance appeared to be some sort of mix between a standard martial arts stance and a stance used by swordsman, it appeared to offer good outlets for all sorts of fighting, granting mobility, defense, and offensive potential. Kashiki rested one hand on his odachi that rested on his hip, the scabbard disappearing behind his back. His other rested in his pocket, able to easily grab any item he would need in the fight with quickness and ease. Kashiki's red metal samurai-esque armor glinted in the sun, it offered protection from both blades and strikes from the fists and feet.

Kashiki nodded to the spider ninja letting him know to start whenever he was ready.

WC: 359
Chakra: 245/250
Techniques Used::
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.

OOC: aim for two 350 word posts per round, we need a winner every two posts, the post order ends with me. Lets lightning round this mkay?

As Kashiki would saunter his way over the young spider of Sero's line couldn't help but applaud the young boys courage. Though Xiao was admittedly the weakest of the Kirigakure Genin this fact was unknown by most and especially those of other villages, it could be seen quite easily in fact that the bravery shown by Kashiki stemmed from the concept of true adherence to the will of fire attempting to face the dark and unknown with no more than ones own confidence and light of hope. It was admirable, something Xiao truly wished Kirigakure had an equivelant for that wasn't so...manufactured but the concepts of honor and the power of friendship were quite alien to the mist village.

"As Kashiki informed Xiao of his desire to get in some combat training the orb-weaving spider clasped his hands together with a grin "Well that certainly is the goal. A round of applause to you my humble leaf friend, LOVE the poncho by the way, needs to make a comeback, we're too flak jacket and masks these days" Xiao stated as he watched Kashiki slyly place his hand on his sword, a kenjutsu user? That could certainly be fun to fight. The show was what counted though not merely victory or the illusion of power that whilst Xiao was growing certainly did not have himself. As the poncho was thrown to the side Xiao didn't hesitate rolling his neck for a moment as he looked Kashiki up and down not having much to throw himself unfortunately. As Kashiki reddied himself adopting something that was quite standard for the Konohagakure Ninja who specialised in Kenjutsu, such was the way as Konohagakure whilst certainly having many notable kenjutsu users did have something of a copy paste method when it came to their combat despite their diversity of clan chakras and natures.

"Groovy." Xiao stated thinking for a moment what exactly he could to draw in the crowd with a simple first strike, it was when it hit him like a nefarious plan that curled across his lips as he formed two web lines to either side of Kashiki roughly 2 metres away to form something of a trianble connecting the distance between the two then using the elasticity of the web propelled himself forward like a sling shot towards Kashiki aiming roughly at the solar plexus, as Xiao rocketed forward he would shift his weight forward so that as he neared Kashiki he would slide along the ground and threw the boys legs doing so he would then position his wrist behind him firing a web to the back of the boys head and yank downward hoping to topple to the boy backwards before sliding in an arc to a three point stance "Let's dance!" unknowing that it was most likely to be a replacement regardless it was a flashy opener.

Kashiki listened as the spider talked some more, he did seem quite good at that. It didn't seem like a strange genjutsu or some form of psychological warfare, it was more the the spider just really liked to talk. When the spider mentioned the dull fashion that shinobi had grown accustom too, he had to nod his agreement. Don't get me wrong, Kashiki was as far from a fashionista as any, but it did get quite dull when everyone wore the same thing day in and day out.

Kashiki watched as the spider shot two webs to either side of him, was this some form of ninjutsu? If it was it was one of the strangest he had ever seen. The spider ninja used the webs like a slingshot, launching himself at Kashiki. 'That was pretty telegraphed.' Kashiki thought as he raised his arms in defense, assuming the attack was going to be a straight forward kick. Instead the spider dropped to the ground, sliding under Kashiki's legs. Instinctively Kashiki brought his sword up in a upwards diagonal slash slashing behind himself while simultaneously spinning to face his opponent. The webbing was sliced in mid air by Kashiki's instinctive attack. "You aren't half bad" Kashiki complimented the nimble spider ninja before dashing forwards and bringing his sword in a sideways slash. If his opponent were to jump Kashiki would stab his sword in the ground and attack with a high kick hoping to catch him in the head. After that Kashiki would grab a metsubushi from his bag and flow chakra into it, creating a thin chakra string between it and his finger. Kashiki would whip the metsubushi at his opponent, at first looking to be short before lengthening the string in hopes of catching his opponent off guard and blinding them hopefully allowing for a direct end to the fight. If the metsubushi landed Kashiki would move up and give a straight forwards punch to the stomach, hoping to end the fight. If not he would leap backwards, giving him time to react to his much more nimble opponent.

WC: 350, 709
Chakra: 240/250
Techniques Used::

Substitution: active

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.

Xiao always relished in the way shinobi always looked so shocked at his organic webbing, if only they knew he wasn't even human to begin with it would mean for quite the shocking revelation especially to his friends and allies who knew him so well. To be perfectly honest even he didn't know exactly what or who he was nor what he was capable of...or if organically he was even compatible with humans so to speak. Would he end up giving birth in place of a woman? That was an honest concern of the webslinger especially with the ticking tock of small lifespan the spiders tended to have. As Kashiki's face lit up the little shinobi laughed his typical laugh as Kashiki raised his arms in a defensive manner to block Xiao though was met with Xiao's feint only to instinctively and swiftly rely on his kenjutsu training. Yep, this guy was a kenjutsu user not just a genin with a pointy stick. A shame as the kenjutsu arts were notorious for stopping Xiao's bloodline's inherant abilities of web and silk.

As Kashiki span about front it was apparent that this would be the case as he slashed the webbing in two before it could reach his body much to Xiao's delight, good, it would be a fun battle and one that he needed to prepare for in the future if his plans were to come to full fruition.  The silken tether broken caused the shinobi known as Kashiki to state that Xiao wasn't half bad, "Well I ain't half good either if it counts for anything, I mean you need to see me trying to use genjutsu, I usually just stare until the opponent feels uncomfortable enough to leave me alone" the webslinger stated as he span his body kicking his legs into an arc to allow momentum of his slender to form to gain axial momentum allowing him to manuever his core as the slash came crashing down Xiao would arch his movements so to avoid the slash to his body leaving it bouncing upon the hard tiles of the arena.

As the sword pierced the tiles Xiao assumed it would be time to move, firing a web skyward to allow himself to propel upwards but was met by surprise as Kashiki utilised his own sword as a jumping off point to perform a devastating kick to Xiao's solar plexus sending the spider further skyward hunched over "Oh! Aint that a ...whew,...kick in the head" as the spider shinobi flew upwards he was soon met with an...egg? Was he offering Xiao an egg in these troubled times? A kind and regal act if ever the spider had ever seen one.  He'd never actually seen the item before but in the moment it exploded with white powder blinding Xiao he couldn't help but laugh, that was useful more than that it was flashy and quite cool something Xiao enjoyed "Now that's what I call a bad egg..." Xiao coughed through the dust as fists began to connect with his body, pummeling the spider the combo causing him to fly back several meters and roll across the ground in pain and dust.

Covered in the chalk like powder the shinobi of the webs laid for but a moment in defeat as a nearby genin yelled out "We have a winner!" to the eruption of the onlookers for Kashiki. Xiao remained down, laying there, ensuring the shinobi had his moment of glory before slowly getting up to one knee and looking forward "Okay, you got one on me...Let's go. Round 2." he stated rolling his neck as he rushed forward this time stopping just before he struck Kashiki and creating a diagnol web line towards Kashiki's feet to enable the swordsmen to attempt to slash the webbing heading there and a second line that aimed at the hilt of the sword itself, if he could disable the cutting tool the match would be far more extensive or so Xiao thought. "Let's see some of your jutsu baby!"

Kashiki chuckled as the spider ninja spoke, he was a pretty good comedian for a shinobi. The spider ninja had a certain shine to him, he was different from the typical darkness and grizzly-ness of most shinobi. Kashiki liked that about him.

The spider ninja took defeat quite gracefully, simply asking the swordsman for a rematch. "Of course, don't take it easy on me, I wanna see what you really got this time ok?" Kashiki answered with a slight nod.

The spider launched a web at Kashiki's foot, which he easily cut right out of the air. The spider shot another web at his blade and pulled it out of his hand. "That was smart, gotta give it to yah." Kashiki said with a grin as he gave the spider exactly what he asked for, a jutsu. His hands wove into hand seals and he flowed katon chakra into the ground, creating a paper thin area of extreme heat. The spider ninja was just outside the area's radius, but if he moved towards him on the ground the heat would most definitely stop him in his tracks. After the jutsu activated Kashiki dipped his hand into his pocket, pulling out a smoke bomb and pulling the pin before dropping it on the ground. A cloud of smoke filled the area around Kashiki, forcing the spider ninja to spend precious time searching for him inside the pool of intense heat. "Come and get me!" Kashiki shouted out of the cloud of smoke, trying to bait him into entering the area of intense heat.

Next Kashiki reached his hand into his hip pouch, pulling out a kunai. It wasn't his first choice in weaponry, but for the time being it was his best chance. The small blade glinted in the sunlight, rays of light reflecting off its razor sharp edge.
