Name of Jutsu:
Type of Jutsu:
Name: Argent Delacroix
Elemental Affinity: wind
Appearance: but with silver hair
Personality: calm, quiet, lawful, soft spoken and cold. But innately kind despite being naturally distant.
Bio: Born first son of the Delacroix family and thus immediately recognized as next captain of the law enforcement corps, Argent is a mysterious young man who, despite being fairly attractive, seems to have no interest in any relationship with anyone. He is solitary and quiet and rarely smiles. He spends his time enjoying fine foods and coffee whilst reading fantasy books from ancient authors. He has a passion for mythology and pre-renaissance history. At first glance he may seem like a snob but in truth he simply does not know how to approach others and believes he is better off alone with his books. He feels his only true companion is his spirit beast Faust, who in truth is only the physical manifestation of his own soul in the form of an arctic falcon, still he values her above anything else and often confides in her about nearly all his feelings. He's been known to send people who've tried to harm Faust in an attempt to rile him up to the hospital.
Clan/Family: The Delacroix Spirit-nins
Goals: the unification of the ninja world under the ideal of lawfulness and honor
Wind Element - Invisible blade: by molding his chakra into his weapons and the air surrounding them he can wrap winds around any edged weapon he possesses and increase their cutting range by four inches. (weaning 6 inch daggers have an invisible extra 4 inches of blade to cut you with)
Spirit Beast Art - Weaponization Jutsu: with this basic jutsu taught to all of the members of his clan Argent can transform Faust into any weapon of his choice as long as the transference of mass is respected. His favorite transformation is making her into a pair of silver daggers(seen above).
Spirit Beast Art - Attribute Creation: Another jutsu unique to his family, with this ability he can transform his chakra into whatever atribute his spirit beast reigns over. Faust's is silver so in turn Argent can Mold his chakra into pure silver.
Spirit Beast Art - Attribute Control: With this jutsu, Argent can freely manipulate and shape whatever silver he either creates or comes in contact with.
Spirit Beast Art - Spirit Fusion: This is an ability only taught to the leaders of the Delacroix family. Argent can temporarily bring Faust back into his own spirit for a major power boost. He can now create silver without limit and can become silver himself. Argent has yet to master this jutsu however and he can't hold the connection for very long, after three minutes the technique is canceled and Faust is expelled out of his body. It also consumes nearly all of his chakra, trying to do it twice in one day can prove dangerous to his life.
Sprit Beast Art - Union Art, Silver Screech[imperfect]: A rite of passage for the Delacroix is to create your own original jutsu. This is required to be considered and adult among the clan. Argent, however, is still considered a child, which proves that his jutsu is still far from complete. What Silver Screech is supposed to be is a Genjutsu in the form of sound waves. As Argent and Faust both screech together they are supposed to mix their chakra together and cast an illusion on the target, making him or her believe they are surrounded and then skewered by a thousand silver daggers. However in this imperfect state all the screech does is cause mild disorientation. What's worse is that it affects anyone who hears it other than Faust and Argent themselves, making it just as bothersome to allies as it is to enemies. The imperfection of this jutsu only goes to show how much Argent has yet to learn before being truly synchronized with Faust.
Name: Spirit Beast Mark
Appearance: a white cross in a black circle on his palm
Ability: It allows members of the Delacroix family to summon their own souls out of their body in the shape of a pre-destined animal which has control over a certain attribute. No two delacroix share an animal nor do they share control over the same attribute. The delacroix also share a psychic bond with their animals and can use that bond to communicate with one-another telepathically through their beasts.
Weakness: the spirit beast does grant it's user great strength yes, but it is also the nin's greatest weakness. As the beast is a manifestation of the user's own soul if the beast were to die, the user would die with it. the danger of death is also present if the mental connection established between user and beast is severed for an extended period of time, making Delacroix vulnerable to powerful genjutsu users.
Side Effects: loss of pigment in hair (white or extremely pale hair) and red eyes.
Training Info: In paradox to the fact that having the spirit beast out in the open outside of battle inceares the chances of something happening to it and thus harming the user, the techniques of the Spirit Beast Art can only become more powerful if the user comes to learn his or her own soul A.K.A socialize with their spirit animals. It isn't rare to see members of the Delacroix walk around and even sleep with their spirit beasts always by their side despite the risk this poses for them. the more time the beast spends materialized the more powerful a delacroix's Spirit Beast Arts will become.
Name: Ryotaro Nijima
Personality: Ryotaro is a cold, cruel and uncaring person, deeply scarred both physically and emotionally from the era of warring clans. He has essentially given up on life as a human being and lives only for the sake of becoming the perfect weapon for Kiri. He will kill anyone or anything if given the order and doesn't fear death if it means accomplishing his mission. He is deeply loyal to the Kage and will follow her every command without question.
History: For most of his life, Ryotaro was nothing special. In an era where warriors and ninja were common place, even a skilled and loyal assassin like him was considered mediocre at best. Though his clan was known for their ferocity in battle, they were small and they did not possess any great kekkeigenkai and their secret puppetry art was not powerful ennough to tip the scales in the ending years of the clan wars where only the strongest and most fearsome mercenary clans remained. In the end, the Nijima were just one more name that was all but wiped from the history books.
Ryotaro himself only survived by deserting his family during their last battle. Shamed and now hunted by the men who had employed his clan, Ryotaro had no other choice but to become a vagabond, using his once proud ninja arts to kill and pillage the innocent in order to survive.
During one such night where sin had become his only means of survival, he stumbled upon an apparent group of normal travelers. he could tell by looking at them that they had to be carrying some good amount of money, or better, food. He waited until all of them had gone to sleep as to silently slice their throats open, but the moment he set foot in their camp they all sprung to life and attacked him. They, too were ninjas who's clans had been destroyed one way or another and they had banded together for survival, they were all much more powerful and experienced than the young boy and quickly over-came him.
Instead of killing him however they were simply content of forcing him into submission. Their leader, a young girl not much older than him but of a beauty yet unseen to the young boy's eyes, then offered him a place amongst them. There he could become stronger, more powerful and restore his ninja name. Ryotaro couldn't look away from the unearthly beauty. Doubtless she couldn't be human. that black as coal skin, those bloody red eyes. She could be nothing more than a demon, and yet he felt entranced by her. Perhaps she has cast her spell on him, he didn't know, but he accepted her offer and swore to serve her loyally.
These were the events of twelve years ago. Today, under the woman's tutelage, Ryotaro has become a powerful and dignified ninja and still serves the Mizukage as faithfully as he had promised to all those years prior.
- the standard ninja arsenal (kunai, shuriken, explosive tags, etc.)
- the Puppeteer's dolls hanging from his hair
- This sword (the chain can be extended of shortened at will. Max length of 15 feet)
- Voodoo needles
- Divination tablet
- Sorcery talismans
Specialty: He's proficient at all but specializes in ninjutsu
Primary Affinity: Yin
Secondary Affinity: Yang
Kekkei Genkai: none
Taijutsu - Binding Collar: By spinning an throwing the ring at the end of the chain coming our of Ryotaro's blade at his opponent's neck, Ryotaro can trap the opponent in the ring which will then tighten around the neck as necessary to ensure they can't slip out of it. This will then open up Ryotaro to use either the Collar of Servitude or Dog's Death jutsu.
Taijutsu - Dog's Death: after using Binding Collar, Ryotaro will pull the enemy towards him with the chain then kick them up high in the air, while they are airborne he will wrap the chain around his opponent (similarly to the primary lotus) and then will pull them down hard to the ground before pouncing on them and delivering a fatal stab with the sword end of his weapon, then recalling the chain and hoop to him. (Note: this is most effectively preformed while under the effect of the 'Strength of Boar' jutsu as it will allow the user to 'reel in' bigger and heavier enemies.)
Yin Release - Blackout Touch: By using the negative properties of Yin, Ryotaro can cast a jutsu on his hand that will rob anyone of their sight if there is contact with his hand and their skin. This is, however, not a genjutsu, it is a ninjutsu that targets the eyes of the victim, preventing them from sending information to the brain. The victim will have to cleanse or force out the Ryotaro's chakra from his body before being able to see, or alternatively just wait for the chakra to be cleansed out by the body naturally at which point the jutsu will go away by itself.
Yin Element - Spirit tracker: This is a jutsu that is used in conjunction with the divination tablet. By using something containing the target's essence (lock of hair, a weapon their always carry, a piece of clothing they wear often, nail clippings, body part, etc.) Ryotaro can track a target down by placing the object in the middle of his divination tablet and splitting its own yin and yang apart, holding its yin in the palm of his hands. The yin will then inevitably want to be reunited with its yang, this will cause the object on the divination tablet to glow white to the eyes of anyone sensitive to yin and yang energies. A white trail will also be painted from the table, to the target as long as the object's yin and yang are separated. With increased meditation Ryotaro can pinpoint the target's location while staying in the same spot. However it becomes increasingly difficult and takes longer to locate a target the farther away they are from Ryotaro and the less chakra they possess. If the target is in an area where Ryotaro can physically see them, they will glow white as well, regardless of any jutsu they may have cast upon themselves.
Yin Element- Collar of servitude: After using Binding Collar on an enemy Ryotaro will take out a sorcerer's talisman and call a demon's spirit from the yin side of the world, he will then make the demon' spirit travel along the chain and through the collar, forcing it into the captured target's body. If this succeeds the victim will become possessed and will serve Ryotaro's every command until either Ryotaro sets them free, the collar is removed from their necks, or the demon is purified from their bodies. (Note: Ryotaro can not move while attempting to force a demon inside a victim host and the more chakra and willpower the victim has the longer and more chakra it will require out of him to posses them. Being forced to move will cancel the technique an call the ring and chain back to him.)
Yin Element - Twin Demon Possession: This yin element jutsu requires a blood contract to be put in place. Ryotaro must obtain some of his targets blood first then 'feed' it to one of the four voodoo dolls hanging from his hair by drawing a pentagram on the back of the doll with the blood. He then summons Libras, twin demons tied in body and soul to take possession of both the doll and the target. Only those with demons already inside them can resist this particular possession. After the possession is complete the voodoo doll will take on the appearance of the target, he can then use specialized yin voodoo needles to inflict damage on his opponent's body and soul by stabbing the voodoo doll. This technique is only canceled if the demons are purified out of both the doll and the host within two minutes of each-other (else the first one purified will just re-take possession of its respective container) or if the voodoo doll is destroyed (only damage don to it by voodoo needles is reflected onto the host).
Yang Release - Strength of Boar: A Jutsu Ryotaro accidentally came across wile researching his family's yin style. It is a basic jutsu that doubles his physical strength for a short amount of time in exchange for a moderate amount of chakra. It has no effect on his speed or endurance however.
Weakness: Yang users who can counter-act his yin arts, especially powerful yang sorcerers who can purify his demons away. His techniques are also weak against people with enormous amounts of chakra or people that are really huge. (in other words he prefers to attack people who like to be good at everything but not amazing at any one thing.)
