I hope more then one person can be to each clan, though I hope not everyone chooses the same one leaving one to suffer, as I don't want to be the only Hyūga clan member. I like the fact that it is set in an AU, though I would also like to see it still follow some of the canon of the original universe, like how things work and the feel of the world to some extent. Before I list my character I will just show how much of a Naruto fan I am, rather how I have a lot of free time, by listing some ideas and facts that I have observed in other Naruto RP. The can be ignored by the GM if he wants, I am just putting it here to maybe help the RP to feel a little more canon:
A note to those who said they wanted powerful bloodline limits the three strongest, at least for eyes are the Byakugan (Hyūga), the Sharingan (Uchiha), and the Rinnegan (which only the pain has, as the bloodline is dead). Eye bloodline are not the only ones and if people want a full list or details about them they can look here: http://naruto.wikia.com/wiki/Narutopedia
that is the link to the Naruto Wikipedia which has most if not all the information people would need. Along with that note I have a few others for people playing the Uchiha clan and thinking of having the Sharingan, not everyone in the clan has one. This is because in order for even the first spot to appear the user must go through a very emotional or stressful experience. It only actives at first, if they have it at all, if they undergo something that is extremely trying and brings them and their emotions to the edge. The later dots, up to three for the traditional Sharingan, only also appear one at a time due to similar and very hard and trying events. I am just saying this as most people I have seen RP Uchiha clan members view it as an everyday thing and that is normal to have one, in fact it means that person has been through something very traumatic, once again if you are actually going by the canon material. Another note is that the Sharingan can copy other techniques, but only in so far as the user of the sharingan can copy them, it doesn't allow someone to everything they see. As if the case of the Sasuke copying Lee's taijutsu he could only do an imperfect version of it, because his body couldn't do it right and it even strained his body.
With that said the Sharingan is in fact a very powerful eye jutsu and if used correctly can turn the tide of battles, it is like an added advantage for that clan on top of all of their jutsus. It has three main techniques, each kinda of corresponding to the number of Tomoe, or dots, the eye has. The first ability is the eye of insight which allows the user to notice and begin to see the flow of charka, though not in a person and it can notice if someone is under genjutsu as their flow becomes irregular. The second ability is to further ones perception, though it is not to the degree that the Byakugan can, allowing them to easily recognize genjutsu and different forms of chakra. his also allows the user to pick up on subtle details, enabling them to read lip movements or mimic something like pencil movements. As the Sharingan evolves, gaining more tomoe seals, this ability extends to being able to track fast-moving objects before finally giving some amount of predictive capabilities to the user, allowing them to see the image of an attacker’s next move from the slightest muscle tension in their body and counter or dodge without any wasted movement. However, even though the user may be able to see an attack or know it is coming, their body may not always have time to react. The third ability is the copy aspect which I talked about earlier and that it does put more strain on the body and charka then if you can do the justu by self training, this is why self training is still more important then the eye. Lastly the Sharingan's final commonly-used ability is capable of inducing a unique brand of hypnosis that involves suggesting actions and thoughts to the opponent through genjutsu cast by simple eye contact, though even this has limits. The Mangekyō Sharingan is by far the rarest thing to get as it requires you to lose the closest person to you and feel that sense of lose, that it is very deep, most of the time this is done by actively killing that person. Also the use of this ability rapidly makes the user go blind the more they use it, till he can see nothing at all.
Now to talk about the Byakugan and the canon information about it. All people who have this have featureless white eyes, lavender, or blue grey eyes even when the jutsu is not active. Also all members of the clan have this from the day they are born, unlike most if not all other bloodline and eye jutsus. The first ability of it is that it allows the user to see everything around them in 360 degree field of vision, expect a small blind spot at the back of the neck above the third thoracic vertebra, which few know about. The second ability is being able to see through solid objects, and can use a degree of telescopic sight, the range of the ability can change and be increased with training over time. The third and one of the greatest uses of the Byakugan is the ability to see chakra, chakra flow as well as the chakra circulation system inside the body with great detail. This ability is what the clans special fighting style, Gentle Fist, is based on as hitting these cause damage to internal organs which can not be strengthened. There is no defence against the Gentle Fist, since one cannot train one's internal organs to become stronger. The only possible defence is to stop the Gentle Fist's hits from connecting. Like the Sharingan and Rinnegan, the Byakugan's ability to see chakra and its flow allows the user to detect chakra sealed barriers as well as determine when genjutsu is being used. It was also shown in the anime that the Byakugan can also discern a transformation and a real person using the eye's ability to see chakra. Particularly skilled users of the Byakugan can take the Gentle Fist style one step further. Along the keirakurei are 361 pinprick-sized nodes called tenketsu, or chakra points. When struck, the Byakugan user can choose to either seal, or forcibly open these tenketsu, thus giving the user complete control over their opponent's chakra system. Lastly overusing the Byakugan over long periods of time without rest seems to cause severe eye strain in the user, similar to that of the Mangekyō Sharingan, as seen with Neji Hyūga, who couldn't tell the difference between Kiba and Akamaru, as well as physical exhaustion. Unlike the Sharingan, this is not permanent.
The Wood Release (木遁, Mokuton; English TV "Wood Style") techniques combine earth and water-based chakra to create wood. Wood Release techniques can be produced from anywhere, including the user's body, as the user's chakra is literally converted into a source of life. Wood Release is commonly affiliated with the Snake seal. The technique which consists on manipulating wood is called Wood Release Technique (木遁の術, Mokuton no Jutsu). Hashirama Senju was the originator of this ability, evidenced by the fact that no other member of his clan were known to possess this ability. His ability to use these techniques was one of the reasons for him being given the title of the First Hokage, and with Wood Release Secret Technique: Nativity of a World of Trees he was able to grow the trees that served as the foundation of Konohagakure. This technique allowed him to completely reshape the battlefield to his advantage. [This clan during the time of the show is dead and no longer exists, also only the creator of this had the bloodline.]
Okay so now that my little explanation of the two eye jutsus of Konoha and another limit is done and how I have seen them missed played, now it is time for my thoughts on the RP. Even though this is an AU I think we should stick to canon stuff and not mix eye jutsus but leave it as it is. Since this is an AU you could have us all start out as genin or even academy students and just say they have to be older before they can graduate it wouldn't take that much, again because the site requires 16+. Also a note that I have seen many people either ignore or try to get around is that in order to be a jonin you must have mastered at least two types of elemental charka. This is no easy task as mastering one takes a long time and mastering a second even longer, mastering anymore then two is almost unheard of and is rare. Even the users of the Sharingan who can copy other elemental jutsus rarely master over two types, the time and energy it takes is immense and it is better to focus on two.
In the organised society of the villages, ninja are given missions (任務, ninmu) depending on their rank. The missions are categorized in five ranks, based on the mission's possible danger or level of importance.
* D-rank - assigned to genin fresh from the Ninja Academy. They pose almost no risk to the ninja's life and usually consist of odd jobs like farming and babysitting work. The reward for a D-rank mission is between five thousand and fifty thousand ryō. (Genin)
* C-rank - assigned to more experienced genin or chūnin. They are missions anticipated to have some combat involved with the possibility of injury to the shinobi performing it. Examples are guarding people, background investigations, or capturing or suppressing wild animals. The reward for a C-rank mission is between thirty thousand and 100 thousand ryō. (Chunin/Genin [only the best Genin])
* B-rank - assigned to experienced chūnin. They are missions anticipated to involve combat with other ninja. Examples are guarding people, espionage, or killing other ninja. The reward for a B-rank mission is between 150 thousand and 200 thousand ryō. (Chunin/Jonin [no Genin would be allowed on this mission])
* A-rank - assigned to jōnin, concerning, among other things, village-or state-level matters and trends. Examples are guarding VIPs or suppressing ninja forces. The reward for an A-rank mission is between one hundred fifty thousand and a million ryō. (Jonin [no Chunin or Genin would be allowed on this mission])
* S-rank - assigned to experienced jōnin and concern state-level confidential matters. Examples are assassinating VIPs, and transporting highly classified documents. The reward for an S-rank mission is more than a million ryō. (Jonin [no Chunin or Genin would be allowed on this mission])
I think with that I have listed all of my thoughts currently, hopefully it wasn't to much and a waste of my time, anyway here is my character sheet.
[not the best image but I hope it works]Main strength:
Her main strength is in using the Byakugan as well as her clans signature fighting style, that is reserved for the head of the clan, in new and interesting ways. Sometimes combined it with weapons or turning it into a weapon, which she is training with though so far with little success as it hasn't been done before. [if you want an example think like what Hinata does in the show by making her charka into needles that can be thrown.]Jutsu signatures:- Byakugan (Clan Bloodline Limit [Eye Jutsu])
Allows the user to see charka flow, charka points, and allows the user to see through solid objects and locate people or sources of charka. Allows a 360 field of vision and she can use it as far out as 75 meters, currently. Can also note if people are under the influence of a genjutsu and when someones charka is not quite right. - Gentle Fist (Clan only fighting style)
A form of hand-to-hand combat used by members of the Hyūga clan. It inflicts internal damage through attacking the body's Chakra Pathway System, subsequently injuring organs which are closely intertwined with the area of the network which has been struck. To do this, the user surgically injects a certain amount of their own chakra into the opponent's chakra pathway system, causing damage to surrounding organs due to their proximity to the chakra circulatory system. Even the slightest tap can cause severe internal damage, hence the name "gentle" fist. Targeting the tenketsu can enhance the havoc and control a Gentle Fist practitioner can impose upon an opponent's chakra network- Eight Trigrams (advanced form of the Gentle Fist [only used and taught to the head clan])
Has learned most of the techniques that are taught in this style. She is not a complete master of it, but she can still do most if not all the moves if they can be sloppy at times.
Kayo knows the basic techniques learned inside the Konoha academy Kayo also shows a great effinity towards Air charka, taijutsu, and ninjutsu.
She does not know any Genjutsu techniques, only mildly how to defend against them and help others get out of them.Bloodline/Clan:
Hyūga [Byakugan] Daughter of the Head FamilyBiog:
Kayo is the first and only daughter of the head family, she has no brothers or sisters. As the next head of the family a lot of pressure is put on her to be a great ninja and help lead the Hyūga Clan. She is expected to be the best she can be and better, as such she was forced to spend most of her time studying and training. She didn't have a lot of friends as her family was very protective of her and didn't allow her outside of the clan's complex often. Most of the friends she did have were part of the clan and either cousins or other younger kids that were related to the clan. Even they were forced to treat her with some kind of respect at all times as she was going to be the next head.
During her childhood there was an attempt made to kidnap her and steal the secrets of the Byakugan, she was 7 at the time. She doesn't have a large memory of the event, but what she can remember is her father and the other clan members coming to save her and how much she wanted to be like them. This is one of the events that drove her desire to become a better ninja and to train harder then she had to be the best ninja she could be. She trained hard and eventually made it into the academy, she was top of her class, she was smart and hard working, she graduated easily.Personality:
Due in part to her upbringing she is shy and not used to meeting a lot of people. She likes to read, draw, and do quiet things to help improve herself and study nature. She doesn't have much experience talking and interacting with new people and can be shy, though sometimes she can seem demanding. She likes to have fun and is a happy person, but this can be hampered by not knowing the person and not knowing how well she can trust them. She also tends to put others ahead of herself, she is willing to hurt herself to save others. She also has a mildly demanding personality at times and if truly asked her opinion, by some she trusts, she will give it. Lastly when push comes to shove she can also be a good leader, as she was trained to be the next head of the clan.Strengths and flaws:
Kayo is both smart and talented when it comes to taijutsu, her clans jutsu, and ninjutsu. She is good at coming up with interesting ways to use existing jutsu and likes to practice and experiment. She is, self, trained in the use of weapons and is looking at how to better use them and combine charka with them.
Although she is talented in taijutsu she is not physically overwhelming, relying more on weapons or her gentle fist rather then brute strength. With so little experience talking with people outside of her clan and due to the incident of her being kidnapped, she finds it hard to trust people and can be cautious around them. She has little to know knowledge or talent in Genjutsu and only knows some of the techniques used to break out of it and resist it. Most of the time she thinks with her head, but if emotion gets the better of her she will sometimes act out on emotion, leading to her making decisions that she normally would never do.
Well there is my character, what do you think?
