This is a revamp of the Chinoumi clan to fit it with the new Exp system. I havn't changed any of the jutsu, but just added Exp points to them so there shouldn't be much of a problem.
This clan has been fixed for the new base stats
Clan Owners: Shinigami & Nosumo
Family Name: Chinoumi
Home Village: Hidden Village of Mist
Village Clients: All existing villages
The Ketsuekigasu [Blood Agents] are a small group of people who posses the Chinoumi bloodline, or Blood Collector. The name of the actual family is Chinoumi, but the clan goes by the title of the Ketsuekigasu. The family is actually very large, but the clan, or those who have the bloodline trait is a fairly small group. This is because the bloodline gene is rare and often not the dominant trait passed on to children. Because of this a Chinoumi with the bloodline abilities is rare and often celebrated within both sides of the family. The family itself is separated into two halves, the Ketsuekigasu, and the Kyouketsusha or Blood Donors.
The Ketsuekigasu control the clan and hand down direct orders, while the Kyouketsusha outwardly protect the clan and obey the Bloodline. While the Kyouketsusha is the servant part of the clan it easily makes up 5/6 of the clan's total size. Though they are more than just tools to the majority of the Ketsuekigasu and all of the family treats one another with a deep outwardly respect. For the betterment of the clan, special jutsu have been designed for the average members not possessing the bloodline trait, so that they can better protect the family. The strongest Bloodline member is the head of the family, and alongside him are normally three to five head representatives, one to two of which are usually Kyouketsusha.
The Head of the family, along with his three to five advisors controls the actions of the clan and decides on what is best for them. While most of the family is allowed to do as they please, every member of the clan is considered obligated to obey the call of the Head of the family. Members who do not are branded as deserters of the clan. Deserters are never allowed to speak with other members of the family, and if the deserter is a Ketsuekigasu, they are often hunted down by the rest of the family and killed to protect the bloodline secrets.
Clan Physical and Bloodline Description:
Members of the Chinoumi family are often thin and slender people, never weighing very much at all. The average weight of an adult man is around 143.lbs - 172.lbs
and the average weight of a woman is somewhere between 118.lbs - 159.lbs. Commonly members of the Chinoumi family are fairly good looking and with an elegant grace. The women having a fair and almost even dainty quality about them, while the men seem to have a similar frail look to their appearance they often bear a handsome face, only slightly scarred sometimes by the clan's other traits.
On average members of the Chinoumi family is only seen with three different hair colors, a dark brown or a light and even pale yellow and then the most common a deep shade of red. Light or dark red hair, blood red like their creator's, is most dominant, some of the men have brown hair and some of the women might have a rich, if somewhat faded, yellow hair. The clan normally has their women keep their hair long and beautiful, the family taking great pride in the females of the clan. The men often keep their hair at a medium length, not long, but in strands that go past a short hairstyle. The clan is able to tell who has the bloodline and who does not by the color of their eyes.
Average members eyes are always the same color from birth, a bright blue, as all babies' eyes are from the moment they enter into the world. Although a bloodline member's eyes are different, when born their eyes are a very deep scarlet color that seem to shine. Their eyes promptly return to their average color a few weeks after being born, but revert to this bloody shade whenever the bloodline abilities become active. Thanks to this trait, members of the clan are able to distinguish Ketsuekigasu from Kyouketsusha. Often, members of the Chinoumi family are selfish or at the least very self-absorbed, this has nothing to do with a genetic trait passed down from parent to child. This is the effect of all the older member's behaving in this manor and because of that it is passed down to the children.
Although manners is also very important to the family. Chinoumi clan members are sent through a good manors school while they train in the academy. These behavior classes teach the children how to behave in public, talk to others and adults with respect and how to charm others into liking you, often used on the opposite sex for gaining information or an advantage during missions the children my be assigned later in life.
Most of the Rain ninjas would see the Chinoumi Clan as a tool rather than a group of people. This upsets some and is ignored by others. Whatever the case, the Rain Village would draw a lot of its strength from this clan.
At least this is how the clan used to be, as time went on the rain village fell, while it is said to still exist it was no longer one of the noticeable factors in any shinobi affairs. Because of this the Chinoumi had to find new "employment." They moved on and found that their numbers had grown too thin and they were dying quicker than they could reproduce. To solve this problem all remaining members of the clan gathered together to help solve the problem once and for all.
The greatest medical ninja of the clan (a profession that tends to be above average, due to their unusual genetic history) worked to redeveloped the Chinoumi gene so that it would stay "pure" even when mixed with another's blood. The drawback of the new gene is that it is recessive, and thus the bloodline would only develop in a small portion of the new clan instead of every member. People from outside the family were brought in and the clan flourished. The current standing of the clan is from 100 to 160 members, at least 45 to 85 are bloodline members of the clan.
They now reside in the Mist village, but do not think of it as a home and offer their services to all of the shinobi villages, for a fair price.
Behavior: Most Chinoumi tend to be very close with members of the clan, but keep their distance from the rest of the people of the rain and mist villages. Thus to others they seem impersonal and "loners" but this is not always the case. Genin tend to follow this trend much less and mix with others much better than adults.
Now for what you have all been waiting for, what is the bloodline power of the Chinoumi family. For those of you who havenít guessed it by now, it is to freely manipulate their blood. Of course this is a very poor way to explain their powers, they have a very complex form of control that grants them the ability to manipulate the unusually heavy flow of chakra that circulates through their blood.
By refining the chakra control and perfecting the bloodline, a Ketsuekigasu is able to gain a very powerful mastery over their own blood flow and use it to freely attack or defend enemies.
The reason they may manipulate their blood is because their blood is a representative of their chakra. For example, if a Hyuuga were to look at them with the Byakugan (The Byakugan allows a person to see chakra moving through a person's body) they would not see the normal chakra routes, but instead see the very path that blood uses to travel through the body. The Chinoumi Bloodline member's chakra and their blood are almost one and the same. Because of this, by learning to manipulate their chakra, they can learn to manipulate their blood. As a side effect, learning to use other jutsu is difficult as they must first learn to separate the chakra from their blood and then to convert it as needed for the required jutsu.
A downside to this ability is that the blood can only be manipulated into weapons and used for other important purposes when exposed to the air, and that can only be done when the member in question is bleeding. Thus to use their jutsu they must cut themselves, which is a downside in itself as the Chinoumi bloodline members have a naturally low health, although the inverse is also true, they have a naturally higher chakra to support their jutsu. The chakra in the blood also helps in a number of other ways. Naturally removing your blood is a painful and hazardous thing to do, this is no different to the Chinoumi, but the chakra helps to make the blood cells split and multiply on a rapid scale to support the user and keeps it continually circulating through their body at the same time.
A little known fact about the clan is a trait called the Blood lust, in recent years it has become more controlled in past years. The blood lust is the Chinoumi clan's need to manipulate the chakra in the blood that often results in the Chinoumi becoming highly violent and dangerous, not to mention destructive. The reason for the blood lust is mostly unkown, but it is thought that it might be a cause from their unusual origins of genetic engineering.
All members of the Bloodline, not the clan just members with the advanced bloodline, start off with a naturally lower base health and a naturally higher base chakra. Endurance and Intelligence to Health and Chakra increases stay the same.
Its a simple 30 decrease in Health and a 30 Increase in Chakra
Genin: 55 Base Health & 115 Base Chakra
Chuunin: 150 Health & 260 Base Chakra
Jounin: 295 Base Health & 505 Base Chakra
Special Jounin: 440 Base Health & 750 Base Chakra
S-Rank: 685 Base Health & 1220 Base Chakra
Finally, after many, many years of experimenting with blood and DNA, the Leader of the Rain Village had created the perfect clan, or at least it was perfect in his eyes. Being an advanced medical ninja, the Rain Leader had received all that he needed to experiment his whole life. When he had reached the pinnacle of his strength and been elected leader of the Hidden Village, he had finally gotten all the equipment, test subjects, and everything else that he'd ever wanted.
After being the leader of the village for ten years he had gained quite a reputation. Other villages had heard of his legendary anger, lust for blood, and power. Some believed that he was a vampire. He was, needless to say, legendary in the history of the Rain, and soon the same was to be said about his creations. In the tenth year of his reign he created a clan that resembled himself: blood-red hair, anger, and a lust for blood. But he gave them more, much more, in order to continue his legacy forever. See, the Rain Leader had always lived for the day that the Rain would be noticed as one of the Great Shinobi Villages and he would be made an actual Kage. He knew that he would never be able to see this day himself, so he created the Chinoumi clan in order to give power to the Rain and carry on his legacy.
He had trained one specific Chinoumi all that he knew, then he gave the order for him to train the rest of the clan. Before his death, the Leader removed himself from the position of Rain Leader and appointed his personal apprentice, his own "son," as leader. Three months later the old Rain leader died, ironically from a blood disease.
It all started with 10 Chinoumi, five women and five men. One man was trained by the creator, and he in turn trained the rest. By the time the Great Shinobi Wars arrived at the Hidden Village of the Rain, the Clan was a formidable force. They were key to Rain's successes and, ultimately their failure. They were relied on too heavily, taking on the most dangerous missions and receiving the most casualties. The blow was even more potent when the leader of the Clan (then the Kage) was assassinated. The next Kage was picked and the once powerful Chinoumi Clan withdrew from power.
The Chinoumi clan only live and reproduces with others of the Chinoumi clan. The clan was engineered to interbreed. This would keep their blood "pure" and not introduce any unknown factors. It's the way the clan was made, so it's not weird to them if they have sex with their sister. Members donít see this as immoral or unnatural, since it is what he or she grew up in. A birth in the Chinoumi clan involves a lot of blood. Even though they produce blood at remarkable speeds, too much blood is lost. The mother must receive blood, traditionally from the father, during the birthing process if she and the child are to survive. The Current population of the Chinoumi is a little below 20, not surprising due to their great loss and complicated breeding.
Because they are all so closely related, each generation is considered to be part of the same immediate family, i.e. they are all considered brothers and sisters. In this same respect, all of the "parents" care for all of the "children," regardless of which one actually gave birth to them
Ketsuekigasu members cannot be applied with any of these techniques. You must be a member of the Chinoumi family to start with these techniques, although they can be learned by anyone through RPing.
- Childish Bloodshed [Otonagenai Ninjouzata]
A simple technique where the user focuses chakra into a sharp object, normally a kunai or senbon. This object is then used to cut into a victim. If the target is hit, the chakra moves from the blade onto the enemy and slowly tears open the wound to allow greater blood flow. |Chakra-15 |Damage- 5 (three turns) +kunai damage |D-Rank | If used a second time it is counted as another cut and another five damage will be done in addition to what was already done. |6 Exp
- Demon Cloth; Sleeve [Oni Asanuno; Suri-bu]
A low-level jutsu that transfers chakra into a long sleeve. With chakra moving through the threads, the sleeve is able to stretch out a short distance over the user's own hand and form a human-hand-like shape. The fingers of this hand are pointed and stretch out even farther so that they may pierce a foe. When a enemy is hit, the cloth absorbs a bit of the enemies blood, this does not do anything more than turn the cloth a deep red color, but it is still a scary thought.
|Chakra-20 |Damage- 15 (per hit) |D-Rank |Technique lasts for three turns. |6 Exp
- Beautiful Death; Dancing Plague [Shan Oujou; Odori soeki]
A strong taijutsu style taught to the Kyouketsusha, this taijutsu style uses elegant movements and fast shallow attacks to dazzle and slowly kill an opponent. What makes this style strong is that it can be combined with certain weapons or used as hand to hand attacking skills. While weapons are the main way to go, it was originally designed for basic taijutsu. To train in this stage practitioners are actually taught to dance. Moving gracefully is the key to combat for this style, by moving in this way they are able to dodge quicker and counter with a certain "passionate flare". Flips and dramatic movements are often encouraged at this point in the training as it helps the practitioner train their muscles even when in actual combat. |D-Rank |+2 Reflex |This stage may be used with Kunai to increase the damage done |6 Exp
- Adolescent Bloodshed [Seishun Ninjouzata]
A more advanced form of the Childish Bloodshed, the user performs the same technique as before, but adds more chakra, and gives special care as to where to attack and the way that the chakra is manipulated. When the user cuts an enemy, the chakra not only opens up the wound, but also begins to pull blood towards, it causing it to bleed uncontrollable for a period of time. |Chakra- 25 |Damage- 10 (lasts three turns) +Cut damage |C-Rank |Must know Childish Bloodshed |12 Exp
- Demon Cloth; Dual Sleeves [Oni Asanuno; Dyuaru Suri-bu]
A more advanced version of the First Demon Cloth technique, this jutsu merle doubles the effects of the previous technique, using two sleeves instead of one.
The chakra still enters into the selves and causes them to stretch out and form hands with pointed fingers to tearing into enemies. The cloth still absorbs a bit of blood which stains the clothes, not that it does much more than that. |Chakra-40 |Damage 30 (per hit)|C-Rank |Must known Demon Cloth; Sleeve. Technique lasts three turns |12 Exp
- Beautiful Death; Graceful Killer [Shan Oujou; Miyabita Kira]
The second stage of the Kyouketsusha taijutsu style, by now the practitioner has become a very good mover and is more or less a professional dancer of sorts. Now it is time for the next step in the practitioner's training, learning how to properly attack, and where to attack. By using short distance weapons, the practitioner learns where to hit to cause minimal damage but at the same time to strike where it will draw the most blood. For example, they will attack the neck, or if an enemy moves their arms outwards, the wrists, while this won't kill an enemy, being shallow cuts, it will draw out a great deal of blood and make the enemy very light headed. |C-Rank |Use Reflex in place of strength when applying damage for hand to hand combat | This stage may be used with Kunai and short swords to increase the damage done |Must know Beautiful Death; Dancing Plague. |12 Exp
- Adult's Bloodshed [Ichininmae Ninjouzata]
The third advanced version of this jutsu, this technique continues to use short swords, and kunai laced with chakra to cut enemies. The chakra stretches open the wound and digs out blood to injure an enemy. The upgrade to this technique is that the chakra pulls open the wound to a unnecessary point causing the cut to stretch out and grow therefore doing more damage. |Chakra- 30 |Damage-15 (three turns) +Cut damage |B-Rank |Must know Adolescent Bloodshed |25 Exp
- Demon Cloth; Scarf [Oni Asanuno; Erimaki]
Another version of the Demon Cloth jutsu, this technique uses scarves as a medium for the chakra. The chakra enters into the fibers of the scarf and animate it, turning the ends into spiked objects and allowing it to stretch up to eight feet in total distance. A scarf being a long thin piece of cloth, the two ends may be used like extra hands with equal strength to that of the user's intelligence. When the spikes pierce into an enemy a small portion of their blood is absorbed into the fibers, not that this does any real good. |Chakra- 35 |Damage-15 (per spike) + control |B-Rank |Technique lasts four turns. Must know Demon Cloth; Dual Sleeves. |25 Exp
- Beautiful Death; Elegant Portrait of Blood [Shan Oujou; Miyabiyaka Shin'ei Ketsueki]
The third stage of the Beautiful death style, this stage is not about grace and agility, as the others were. This style teaches the importance of stamina, jumping around and moving fast is great, but can only be done for so long. This stage helps increase the stamina of the practitioner so that they may move and dodge longer without tiring as quickly. By moving constantly while carrying large weights they learn their lesson well. Once done the practitioner is all the better for it as it helps them raise their endurance for future battles and challenges. |B-Rank |+2 Endurance (30 health) |Must know Beautiful Death; Graceful killer. This stage may be used with Kunai and short swords. |25 Exp
- Acient's Bloodshed [furui Ninjouzata]
The final advanced form of this technique, as before the user laces a sharp object with chakra, normally a kunai or long sword of some sort. Once done the user is careful to time their attack to strike an enemy near a vein. Once their chakra touches the enemies blood the user makes a quick hand seal that causes the chakra to attack the enemies blood cells and destroy them. Unlike the other versions of this jutsu that try to force out blood, this technique attempts to simply destroy it. |Chakra-35 |Damage-25 (lasts three turns) +cut damage |A-Rank |Must know Adult's Bloodshed |40 Exp
- Demon Cloth; Cloak [Oni Asanuno; Uwabari]
Another variation of the Demon Cloth jutsu, this technique requires a large bit of cloth, such as a cloak or long coat. The user must make a long row of handseals, and then fill every fiber of their cloak or coat with chakra. As the chakra fills the cloth it lifts up into great bat wings, the wings having several jagged points that are capable of cutting into foes. By flapping them, the user is capable of short distance flight, similar to hang gliding. The fibers of the cloak absorb a bit of the enemies blood once they hit a foe, though this doesnít do anything it is a bit scary if you know what I mean. |Chakra- 65 |Damage- 45 (Per hit) |A-Rank |Lasts five turns. |40 Exp
- Beautiful Death; Artist of Death [Shan Oujou; Sakka Oujou]
The Final stage of the Kyouketsusha taijutsu style, this stage attempts to use the continual grace that the practitioner has been perfecting with the power that has until now been wasted. By training the muscles more, the practitioner learns to use this force for timed attacks to cause greater damage than before. And by continuing to focus on points that will draw a large amount of blood the practitioner may still weaken an enemy through blood loss. |A-Rank |Add Strength and Reflex together for hand to hand damage, and close range weapons damage. |This stage may be used with kunai, short swords and larger weapons within reason. |40 Exp
Advanced Bloodline Techniques:
Only Ketsuekigasu may learn these jutsu. These cannot be learned by non-Ketsuekigasu characters in training threads. All Life Blood Manipulation techniques count as one jutsu.
- Life and Blood are One [Chiitonami]
This is not really a technique, it is the effects of having the Chinoumi Bloodline. The user's chakra and blood are almost perfectly in synch and therefore, for better or worse one and the same. The user's health is lowered because of the constant manipulation of their chakra and blood but their chakra levels increase to an equal level to the decrease. When ever a Chinoumi bloodline jutsu is used, the user's eyes will flash a bright violet color for the remainder of the jutsu and for a few minutes after depending on how much chakra was used. Another side effect of this technique is that once the chakra infused blood leaves the body, while still attached to the user, the chakra will cause the blood cells to divide and split at an accelerated rate while attempting to circulate the blood through the body. |E-Rank |Passive |All Ketsuekigasu must have this technique. |3 Exp
- Separate the Life from Blood [Kaku-Chiitonami]
A simple yet important jutsu to all bloodline members of the Chinoumi clan. This technique simply allows the user to separate the chakra from their blood with a single hand seal. This technique is used in combination with other jutsu, by adding on the extra hand seal at the beginning of the jutsu the user is able to effectively use normal jutsu like everyone else. Interestingly enough, it uses up a bit of chakra from the blood to do this, so the total chakra cost for normal jutsu is raised slightly. |Chakra- 10 |E-Rank |Chinoumi Bloodline members only. Only required if the user has any other jutsu apart from the Advanced Bloodline jutsu. |This jutsu must be used in combination with other non-Chinoumi Bloodline jutsu, and does not count towards the jutsu post limit. |3 Exp
- Life Blood Manipulation; Light Stream [Chiitonamiayatsuri: Kyokusui]
This is the most basic level of mastery for manipulating the bloodline member's blood. This is little more than the user nipping their finger and then making crude shapes with the blood that comes out. Although this stage is pointless for battle, it does teach the user how to manipulate their blood on an elementary scale and form it. It also teaches it to move outwards away from the body, the user still being able to manipulate it as long as it is still attached by a strand of blood. |E-Rank |Passive |3 Exp
- Life Blood Manipulation; Running Stream [Chiitonamiayatsuri: Shuryuu]
An important stage for a Chinoumi Bloodline member, this stage is when the user learns the value of their blood and how to better control and use it. One of the many lessons they learn is how to harden or "crystallize" the blood through chakra manipulation. When their blood is flowing they may manipulate the blood into a free form floating liquid. Often this liquid is used as a whip or a small scale shield to soften attacks. Unfortunately the user is still to inexperienced to crystallize their blood on a whim and must stay with weak free form attacks. In addition this technique takes concentration to perform so the user must stay still while using this ability. If the user makes any drastic movements the blood will lose control and fall to the ground. The blood can travel to a distance of half the user's height. |Chakra- 15 (per turn) |Damage- 5 (multiple attacks my do more) |D-Rank |Must know Life Blood Manipulation; Light stream |A cut must be pre-existing before the blood may be manipulated outside the body, and the amount of blood that can be manipulated is proportionate to the amount of blood from the cut. |Does not require hand seals. |6 Exp
- Kunai through Blood [Kunaikara no Chi]
By focusing chakra and thus manipulating the user's blood, a kunai can be made. The blood leaves the body and takes the shape of a kunai, and then "crystalizes" so that it may seperate from the user's body and be used as an normal kunai. Several kunai can be made at once, but it costs more chakra to do so. |Chakra- 10 (inc 3) |D-Rank |Must know Life Blood Manipulation; Running Stream, and must be bleeding. |6 Exp
- Spiral Nails Through Blood [Nejikara no Chi]
By focusing chakra through the body and thus manipulating the blood the user may cause the blood to spiral around their forearms and then end in a sharp point. The blood then "crystallizes" becoming very hard. These weapons are fixed to the user's arm, but can be removed by sliding them of gently. Because these are like nails, it is pointless to try to cut with them. But they can block other weapons and are perfect for stabbing. Depending on the chakra use, one or two of these can be made. |Chakra- 15 (inc 2) |Damage- 15 (stabbing only) |D-Rank | Must know Life Blood Manipulation; Running Stream, and must be bleeding. |6 Exp
- Life Blood Manipulation: Large Stream [Chiitonamiayatsuri: Kasui]
At this stage of the Chinoumi Bloodline members training, they have become familiar enough with their techniques that they can freely manipulate the blood within them at a much more precice level. Still unable to crystallize on a moments' notice the practitioner is still forced to use liquid like weapons. Although the user has learned how to make the blood denser by grouping together the blood cells for greater damage. The real secret for this technique is that the user may now freely move while manipulating the blood. Warping the blood has quickly become second nature for the user and they are now free to dodge and jump to their heart's content. The full distance that the user's blood may travel now is equal the user's height, giving the Chinoumi Bloodline member a longer range to attack from with the free-form style of combat. |Chakra- 15 (per turn) |Damage- 8 (If hit by multiple hits the damage may be greater) |D-Rank |Must know Life Blood Manipulation; Rushing Stream |A cut must be pre-existing before the blood may be manipulated outside the body, and the amount of blood that can be manipulated is proportionate to the amount of blood from the cut. |Does not require hand seals |6 Exp
- Life Explosion [Bakuhatsu no Itonami]
They user manipulates their chakra, thus manipulating their blood to draw out a fair portion and condense it into a ball shape. When done the user has only to wait for the right moment to use it, for when an enemy gets close the user may send a small surge of chakra through the ball and cause it to "crystallize" and then explode, sending shards of blood outwards towards enemies. |Chakra- 15 (creation) 20 (Chakra surge) |Damage- 40 |D-Rank | Must know Life Blood Manipulation: Large Stream, and must be bleeding. |6 Exp
- Shield through Blood [Tatekara no Chi ]
A strong jutsu that is useful to even higher ranking ninja in tight situations. By manipulating the chakra, and thus manipulating the blood the user wraps one arm in a thick flow of blood, the chakra causing the blood cells to split quick enough so that enough blood is made. As the blood covers the arm the user condenses it and then "crystallizes" it into a thick and still light weight shield. This shield is able to completely block all lower rank taijutsu attacks, though stronger equal rank blows will shatter the shield. The shield is also able to block lower rank ninjutsu within reason. Please note that if several strong lower rank taijutsu hits were to strike the shield at the same time then it would shatter or at the least crack. |Chakra- 50 |Passive |C-Rank |Must know Life Blood Manipulation: Large Stream, and must be bleeding. |12 Exp
- Whips through Blood [Keikara no Chi]
A simple yet effective technique that uses refined and focused chakra within the blood to create a more powerful section of chakra. This chakra is one with the blood, and is extended as a long whip-like weapon made of blood. The blood is condensed enough to be considered solid, but still fluid enough to be animated by the chakra. The whip may extend to the full length of the user's body. |Chakra- 35 |Damage- 15 (per hit) |C-Rank |Whip lasts three posts |Must know Life Blood Manipulation; Large Stream, must be bleeding. |12 Exp
- Life Blood Manipulation; Stream that Supports Life [Chiitonamiayatsuri: Kasui Ikki ]
At this stage of the Chinoumi bloodline member's development they are finally able to unlock the potential of their abilities. They are able to "crystallize" their blood through chakra manipulation and sheer will alone. Of course it may still be a challenge at first this action becomes something of a habit that does not really require much thought at all. When mastering this ability the User actually focuses more on an artistic approach than anything else. Using dramatic and gothic looking designs found in family scrolls, it is common for a Saiketsu bloodline member to create long trails of blood that form fearsome spikes and symbols that are both effective in combat and leave a mark of fear on enemies. Unfortunately the process of controlling the crystallized blood and the new power of the development requires more chakra than before and is more draining. The distance the blood can now reach is the full height of the user plus half the height of the user. |Chakra- 20 (per turn) |Damage- 15 (If hit by multiple attacks, damage may be greater) |C-Rank |Must know Life Blood Manipulation; Large Stream |A cut must be pre-existing before the blood may be manipulated outside the body, and the amount of blood that can be manipulated is proportionate to the amount of blood from the cut. |Does not require hand seals. |12 Exp
- Armor Through Blood [Kouchoukara no Chi]
By focusing the chakra within the body, thus manipulating the blood, the user covers portions of their body in a shell of blood, normally the limbs and torso. The amount of blood used is dependant on how much chakra is manipulated. By focusing the chakra the user crystallizes the blood around the limb and continues to force the blood cells to multiply so that the user does not suffer from blood loss.
The blood can be formed into leg armor, arm armor, body armor, or a helmet. All of these armors can be done in one post, but it costs a great deal of chakra. Because this armor is molded to the user's shape and is held against the user's skin it cannot stop all damage from reaching the user, but does lower the amount of damage dealt considerable. The downside for a Chinoumi Bloodline member is that the armor protects the user from being cut, which is necessary for their jutsu. |Chakra-30 (inc6 for each piece of armor created) |Damage reduced- 15 (If damage is below twenty then it is reduced to 1) |C-Rank |Each piece of armor must be made individually, (even if it was made in the same post as other pieces of armor) |Armor deteriorates after six posts |Must know Life Blood Manipulation; Stream that Supports Life, must be bleeding. |12 Exp
- Blood Armor Manipulation [Chikouchouayatsuri]
A sister jutsu to the Armor Through Blood technique. Once the powerful armor has been fixed onto the user's body, they can use this jutsu not long after (the next post) to "un-crystallize" a small section of the armor, making it free-form once again. Once done the chakra causes the blood of that section to multiply and extend out in one long sharp spike or tentacle or several smaller spines. This can be a devastating surprise attack. The down side being that the blood re-crystallizes not long after the spine or tentacle has been released. It is often suggested that it be retraced as quickly as possible, as the full length is may stretch is around four to five feet in distance and a five foot long spike sticking out of the armor isn't very often ideal, unless it is done right. |Chakra-25 |Damage-15 (per hit) |C-Rank |Must know Life Blood Manipulation; Stream that Supports Life, must know Armor Through Blood and have it in effect. |12 Exp
- Class One Blood Absorption [Chiyamitsuki no Ruiichi]
A high level jutsu used by the Chinoumi Bloodline members, as a fight goes one it is common that a large portion of the user's blood will end up smashed and spilled on the ground. While their blood does multiply quickly this can still be exhausting and chakra is wasted in this way. This technique was made to gather up the blood and the small bit of chakra still found within the blood cells. By forming a few hand seals and releasing several long and very thin strands of blood the user touches the strands against the spilled to smashed blood. The chakra within the active blood and drains the chakra from the spilled blood by re-absorbing it. It doesnít take much effort to use this skill, just concentration to reabsorb the chakra and enter it into the normally chakra flow of the user. Because of this the user cannot move while this jutsu is in effect. |Chakra recovery- 15 (per post) |User must remain still during this technique |C-Rank |Must know Life Blood manipulation; Stream that Supports Life, must be bleeding. |12 Exp
- Life Blood Manipulation; River of Red [Chiitonamiayatsuri: Ookawa no Aka ]
A powerful stage of the Life Blood Manipulation, the user has more or less mastered their abilities apart from a few skills only available to true masters of the power. At this stage the user really focuses on fine tuning what they have mastered and finding the limits that they can use their blood and the minimum chakra required. Through this method they ultimately lower the chakra cost for their techniques and learn how to better manipulate their blood into more artistic and effective shapes and designs. At this stage the practitioner can cause their blood cells to divide quick enough that their blood can reach out to a total length of twice the user's height, although this is the farthest it can ever reach. |Chakra- 10 (per post) |Damage- 15 (This number can increase if hit by multiple attacks) |B-Rank |Must know Life Blood Manipulation; Stream that Supports Life |A cut must be pre-existing before the blood may be manipulated outside the body, and the amount of blood that can be manipulated is proportionate to the amount of blood from the cut. |Does not require hand seals. |25 Exp
- Blood Sparrows [Chishio Suzume-tachi]
The user of this technique cuts both of his wrists as he forms the seals for this jutsu, ending with his wrists held forward. Swarms of blood blades in the shape of small birds spurt out of the users wrists to attack the enemy. The blades aren't linear, but they can't change direction much. |Chakra - 20(inc3) |Creates 10(inc3) |Damage - 3 (per sparrow) |Note- the user loses 10hp per (inc) as part of this jutsu. |B-Rank |25 Exp
- Fists Burned in Blood [Kobushi Maruyake o Chi]
A powerful technique where the user manipulates their chakra and thus manipulates their blood, by either slitting the wrists or forcing blood over to the user's hands. Once the blood reaches the user's hands it incases their hands in armor like gloves which are normally cover in elaborate spikes. These gloves actually weight a considerable amount once the user's crystallizes the blood to keep it in place, and thus increases the damage from melee attacks. |Chakra- 15 (per hand) |Damage- +10 to punch damage |B-Rank |Must know Life Blood manipulation; River of Red, must be bleeding. |25 Exp
- Sword Scarred by Blood [Katan Ato o Chi]
By focusing chakra and manipulating the user's blood, the chinoumi using this technique can crystallize a large amount of blood into a large blade. Generally an elegantly designed broad sword, the blade is always heavy from the crystallized blood and can quickly pierce flesh. The user may be momentarily weakened from the amount of blood needed to form the sword, so if is often made thick to block any on coming attacks. |Chakra- 45 |Damage-20 +1/2 strength |B-Rank |Must know Life Blood manipulation; River of Red, must be bleeding. |B-Rank
- Life Blood Manipulation; Sea of Crimson [Chiitonamiayatsuri: Shinku no Umi]
Normally the final step for almost all of the Chinoumi, members that reach this state of power are greatly respected while alive, though quickly forgotten in death. The User at this stage has gained an intimate knowledge of blood and it's make up. Instead of crystallizing the blood as the user has always done before, the Chinoumi can now condense the blood to such a point that it can easily pierce skin and rip flesh, while remaining free form. The speed that the cell's multiply increases slightly, but never enough to really change the rate that the user is used too. While the user can create many grand and extravagant objects, the chinoumi is taught to conserve their blood as they do have their limits to how much is within their body at any given time. Because the blood can now stay free form as a weapon, it can be used in amazing way to cause more damage that is limited by the user's imagination and amount of blood. As a downside, the blood cannot maintain it's form outside the body without either being crystallized or still remaining attached to the body through a string of blood. |Chakra- 10 (per post) |Damage- 20 (This number can increase if hit by multiple attacks) |A-Rank |Must know Life Blood Manipulation; River of Red |A cut must be pre-existing before the blood may be manipulated outside the body, and the amount of blood that can be manipulated is proportionate to the amount of blood from the cut. |Does not require hand seals. |40 Exp
- Scythe of the Forgotten Blood [ Kama no Shissuruchi]
By manipulating the blood in the user's body and drawing it out in great amounts, the user is able to form a massive scythe and then crystallize the blood into a working weapon. The scythe is a powerful tool as the edge can be made to serrated to better draw blood out of the enemy and the weapon in question has its own natural reach. One of the greatest tools of the Chinoumi, this technique is a sign that the user is an important member of the clan. |Chakra- 50 |Damage- 25 +1/2 agility |A-Rank |Must know Life blood manipulation; Sea of Crimson, must be bleeding. |40 Exp
- Grand Scythe of the Ketsuekigasu [Okama no Ketsuekigasu]
An advancement of the Scythe of the Forgotten Blood, few Chinoumi members ever actually learn of this technique as it is the strongest weapon skill in the clan. Often used by those trusted by the leader of the chinoumi or those that have earned the right to stand before others as a defender of the clan. It is considered a great wrong to use this technique unless other options seem useless. The user as before creates a great scythe of blood from their body, but this time keep the scythe's end connected to their body through a strand of blood. This way they may simply super condense the blood instead of crystallizing it. Because of this the scythe may shift forms in battle and alter it's blade. What really makes the blade powerful is that it may draw out blood from enemies and prey in battle to make the weapon even larger, though it may not increase the damage dealt it can increase the range that the scythe reaches. |Chakra- 65 |Damage- 40 (In addition enemies may feel light headed or even faint from blood loss.) |A-Rank | User must have one of the two owner's permission to use this technique, user must know Life Blood Manipulation; Sea of Crimson, and the user must be bleeding. |40 Exp
- Rain of Blood [Ame no Chishio]
Only Special Jounin level Chinoumi can use this technique. This technique can never be used as a opening for a fight as it requires a great deal of blood to be previously spilled. While enemies blood can be used, it must have been mixxed with a Chinoumi's blood before it can be used with this jutsu. By creating a long list of seals the user slams one hand onto the ground that sends out a subtle wave of chakra. The chakra signals to all of the user's chakra and causes it to raise into the air in liquid form. The chakra raises up to cloud level and then begins to fall for a short period of time. This technique is mostly phycological, but if used right it can increase the power of the user's own jutsu or, as it is much more commonly used the rain drops of blood can be forged together into weapons as they fall.|Chakra- 50 (Create the rain)\ 250 (needles) |Damage- 2/neddle out of A LOT of needles- the damage is between 300-600. |Rain Lasts for five turns (Needles cause rain to only last for three. |Kinjutsu |User must have used a total of 15 other Chinoumi jutsu that would leave their blood on the ground before using this technique, if a previous fight involving another Chinoumi occured then you may add their techniques to the count so that fewer jutsu have to be used to reach 15. |A-Rank |40 Exp
- Life Blood Manipulation; Ruby Tear [Chiitonamiayatsuri: Rubi-Heki]
The truest final stage of a Chinoumi's abilities, this is a stage that so few ever reach, that it is believed to actually be a myth. The conditions for reaching this rank are difficult and thus the reason why so few ever reach it. To begin with, a Chinoumi must have mastered all other Life Blood manipulation abilities, thus proving that they are at the peak of their skill. Then the user must willingly give up all of the blood in their body for another with both the intention of saving their life and by consequence ending their own. It is very rare that a trained Chinoumi would ever think of this, but because of the skill and the mental state that a person enters as they die in such a way the body undergoes a violent change. The lines that separated the chakra and the blood become undistinguishable, giving the blood a brilliant shinning ruby color. The blood cells can regenerate at an exaggerated rate to compensate for any lost blood, only the blood type of the chinoumi is now A negative, because of this the life of the user is saved from the task they preformed. Because of the new chakra blood combination the user can manipulate the blood into shapes inside their own body, allowing the blood to pierce the skin from the inside and bleed out, only to just as quickly return through the cut and pull together the skin to seal up the wound. Effectively the user can now summon up blood from any point on their body at any time and then return it without showing a visible mark. The Blood can be super condensed or crystallized with a thought, although at this point crystallization is generally just used when the blood is going to be detached from the user's body, such as throwing weapons. |Chakra- 10 (Per post) |Damage- 25 (Can be more or less depending on the attack and how many hits are taken.) |S-Rank |Must know All previous Life Blood Manipulation stages. |The User no longer has to be bleeding to use the Chinoumi jutsu. |60 Exp
