Back against a large stone column Koga waited for his opponent to arrive.

Dressed in his usual attire he wasn't any more or any less prepared for battle than before. Albeit he wasn't exactly sure how he had ended up in this situation, a martial arts competition, but that wouldn't get in his way now. No, he was here to do a job. To achieve victory. That was his goal.

And he planned on achieving it.

Looping around his pointer and middle finger of each hand swung a kunai; 4 in total. Each one spun at a different pace than the other. His fingers controlling them like puppets on a line. This was his way of dealing with the nerves. He wasn't sure what to expect. He didn't know who his opponent was. He didn't know a thing about this competition. In all honesty, he was unsure of everything at the moment. With no recollection of the past few weeks or even the past few hours leading up to his enrollment in the competition, it was safe to say Koga was like a fish out of water.

The only thing he was sure of was his goal; victory.

Entering the room with a no expression shown and no emotion felt. The truth was: he didn't quite know how to feel. He was the type of person to avoid war and war-like aggression. Fighting was something he did his best to avoid when possible; though not more so than taking a life. That was something he didn't plan on doing. The position he was in, however, didn't so much ask him to take a life as it did force him into a rock and a hard place. He could either fight or lose. Why had he agreed to join this competition again?

Ah, yes. That's right. Experience. In order to heal the world, one must understand how it works and the people within it. Joining the competition meant that he'd have a better understanding of some of the people in the world he sought to heal; and, by default, he'd learn a little more about the world. By understanding those within it, he could paint a picture of how they themselves saw the world. And, with that, he'd create a master piece: the world.

Stepping into the room so that his chosen opponent was just - a rough estimate of - ten yards away, Kisuke stopped to view his opposition closely; watching as he spun several kunai around on his finger tips. His feet slid apart slowly, and his right arm extended as he placed the second behind his back; he was ready to fight.

And to learn.

Like the passing of a ghost a cold chill ran down his spine as his opponent made his way towards him. Each and every cell on his body began to moan in ecstasy as chakra began to flow from the top of his toes to the top of his spiky hair.
Eyes fixed upon the boy for a brief moment as he began to read analyze and scan over him for a brief moment. There was nothing... nothing spectacular or extraordinary. Nothing worth worry about.
Or so he thought.


Pushing himself off the column Koga sprang into a charge. The tapping of his wooden geta echoed within the stone stadium like the beating drums of war before there was nothing...

Soaring threw the air Koga flipped forward launching the 4 kunai. None of which had aim at the boy oddly enough. Each of them were designed to help pin his location down. One to the left. One to the right. One flying just over head. And the last at his feet. Following the kunai would be an earth splitting heel drop from above.

In moments like these, Koga wasn't one for chatter. Getting things done quickly was always his style.

Without hesitation, his opponent moved quickly to attack. Kicking off the piller he previously leaned upon and unleashing all four kunai he'd been spinning. The moment his opponent launched himself towards him and he noticed the four incoming kuani, Kisuke wove a simple and small set of hand seals before kicking off to the right to begin a violent spin. As he spun, Earth from the stone chamber they seemed to be trapped in quickly shot up from the ground and rotated around him. The rotating Earth was ment to protect him from the oncoming kunai, but instead - due to his opponents lack of aim - shielded him from an oncoming kick from above.

Tsk... Troublesome.

Once he was alerted that the attack had actually come from above, Kisuke ceased the spinning motion, causing the hard Earth to quickly soften and loosen under the mans foot. Forming another quick and small chain of hand seals, Kisuke pointed his palm towards the ground and allowed a Lance to sprout from the ground and into his grip. Yanking it from the ground quickly, he pulled it up and slashed for his opponents mid section; aiming not for a killling blow, but something that would hurt enough to give him some distance.

There was obviously no time for talking. Just straight forward fighting.

Name: Doton: Jiten - Rotation
Rank: C
Range: Close
Jutsu Type:
Elemental Affinity: Doton
Clan: N/A
Description: Taking a small page out of the Hyuuga book, Kisuke developed his own, version of the Rotation technique. After forming the necessary set of hand seals, Kisuke will rotate his body, drawing on and pushing Doton chakra out of his feet and using it to manipulate the ground below him. As a direct result, the ground surrounding him within a four to five foot distance will splash up and spin around him radpidly. In direct correlation to this event, the Earth will form a rotating barrier around Kisuke, preventing most forms of attack from reaching him. This can be used against physical attacs - such as Taijutsu - as well as non-physical - such as Elemental jutsu. The earth does no harden, however. It simply churns around him defensively, and then falls away as the rotating ceases; therefore, Kisuke will not be without sight for longer than the period he is rotating. It should be noted, however, that this defensive jutsu can be pierced by other jutsu of a higher rank, or mutliple jutsu of equal rank/strength.


Name: Sangeki Mori - Lance of Tragedy
Rank: C
Range: Close ~ Mid
Jutsu Type: Ninjutsu
Elemental Affinity: Doton
Clan: N/A
Description: After forming the necessary sequence of hand seals, Kisuke will be capable of creating an earthen lance from the ground below him. This lance will be, at most, ten feet in length, and strong enough to pierce through many ordinarily "piercable" materials, as well as few more dense materials. This is because it is composed of a few different minerals found in the Earth which make it more dense itself. Thus, increasing its piercing capability slightly beyond a normal lance or spear. With a thickness of nearly four inches, the lance is also capable of withstanding multiple strikes without completely breaking; unless delievered by a much more powerful attack, of course. This lance has no other special properties, and is not particularly difficult or chakra consuming to create.

Fixed on his target his body folowed through with his intial plan of attack. A mistake. It was just as his body came full flip around that he came to a sudden stop before jerking and being tossed back slightly.

"Huh?!"

Performing a single back-hand spring he but a short distance between them. A bit confused and puzzled, Koga's head lifted, his eyes taking notice of what seemed to be a shield of some sorts, ninjutsu, by his guess. Replaying the last few seconds back in his head he realized what had happened. His opponent must have weaved the hand seals at the exact moment he entered his blind spot ...clever.

How annoying. Lifting his leg he grab ahold of his left foot. Using his right hand he cupped the ball of his heel. "That's going to hurt later..."
The solid hit from the shield, while a solid hit, wouldn't do much to deter his efforts. Within moments the pain had vanished. A mixture of his unique body and the adrenaline pumping through his system helped a bit also.

Dropping his leg back to the ground he proceeded to wiggle his foot around. Taking a step back he shrunk. Removing his geta he stood barefoot atop the cold stone flooring. With a flick of his ankle he kicked the wooden sandals to the side before dashing forward, straight into the oncoming attack. Even going so far as to raise both arms to provide a better view of mis mid-drift. It wouldn't matter at this point. A weapon of that caliber wouldn't so much as scratch him, let alone pierce his steel hard skin.

Planting both feet into the ground he prepared for the inevitable. Hitting him along the lower set of ribs Koga didn't so much as flinch as the earthen spear came to a sudden stop. With no intention of giving this boy a chance to figure out what had happened he would begin his counter attack. Left arm snapping down; an attempt to grab ahold of the spear. Right hand sweeping forward; an attempt to grab the boy by the shirt.

With a firm grip Koga would tilt his head back, glimpsing at the Moon before bringing his head forward delivering a strong headbut as he tugged the boy closer to him; to ensure maxim damage against the boys face.




Spoiler:
Rittai[Solid Body]
Rank: [Genin • C]
Range: Self
Jutsu Type: Supplementary —[Unique]
Elemental Affinity:
Clan:
Description: Much less a technique which requires repeated activation, the [Rittai] is more along the lines of a passive technique that remains active at nearly all times; to an extent. Whilst he's not in combat the [Rittai] is rather minimal, fairly unnoticeable and nonexistent. But when Jin enters combat he enters the [Rittai]. This is due to the flow of chakra within his body regulating the extent of the [Rittai].

Due to his unique origins, Jin's body is much-much more resistant to harm; physical, mental, disease. When the [Rittai] is most active his skin and bones become extremely durable; becoming as tough as steel. Able to use his bare hands to block and deflect blades of various nature without leaving so much as a scratch upon his body. The same could be said for his chakra network. The more distressed Jin becomes the higher his defenses become.

Though such a strong power doesn't come without it's fair share of draw-backs. The higher his defenses rise and the more chakra he has flowing through his body the quicker he tires and exhaust. This is partially due to his rather unfamiliarly with his own power and rather limited chakra supply at his current level. Jin also experiences extreme difficulty when attempting to perform Genjutsu or Ninjutsu.

The [Rittai] is only passive when Jin assumes his own form at this time. He does not gain the same benefits while utilizing his [Nijuushin Kai].

His Earthen defense helped keep him safe from an overhead attack, but before he knew it his opponent had already put some distance between them. But the feeling of breathing easy was short lived, as the man came back charging just moments later. That wasn't even the worst part, because this man didn't even attempt to dodge the oncoming Lance. "Tsk. What the hell?" Kisuke let out with slight confusion as his Lance met the man's lower rib cage but, somehow, didn't pierce through his body. "Damn it-" He said as the man reached forward and grabbed a hold of the Lance. Releasing his own grip, he attempted to throw his hands together quickly, but was grabbed at the shirt and yanked forward before he could move appropriately.

And, to his dismay, was met with an annoyingly painful head-butt to the face.

Stumbling backwards, Kisuke continued the motion to put more distance between himself and this man-of-steel by rolling back. With some distance, he rose to his feet and shook his head. "Ugh..." That pain probably wouldn't subside for a while, and he'd probably have a headache later, but he couldn't think about it too much. With the adrenaline pumping now, it'd take the edge off most of it anyway.

Putting his hands together quickly, Kisuke prepared yet another jutsu. Reaching down at the ground, Kisuke pulled up a large boulder from the ground - indirectly creating a small hole - and took aim. A second later, he set the boulder upon the ground and launched it forward, allowing it to roll quickly towards his opponent with crushing intent. Then, another set of hand signs began. The man before him seemed to attack quickly, so it was in his bets interest to be ready at all times.

Name: Doton: Maruishi Tounyuu - Boulder Throw
Rank: C

Jutsu Type: Ninjutsu
Elemental Affinity: Doton

Description: After forming the necessary sequence of hand signs, Kisuke will place his hands against the ground and pull up a single boulder - roughly ten feet in diameter - to hurl at his opponent. Composed solely of Earth, the boulder can cause heavy damage to humanoid targets and scenery alike.

Good. It connected. Tough he was filled with confidence and genuinely happy he'd managed to get a hit on his opponent, Koga's expression remained unaltered; cold. Why should it change. He had yet to claim victory over the battle just yet.

Still holding the earthen spear within his left hand Koga took a split second to to relax his muscles. Though he'd managed to prevent the spear from puncturing him, or causing him any harm for that matter, his body would still take a second to relax before continuing his assault.

Unfortunately that was all it would take for his opponent to recover and launch an attack of his own.

Straight out of an Indiana Jones movie, A giant boulder was scratching at his heels. Running as fast as he could he managed to put a bit of a gap between himself and his impending doom. Or at least until he found himself face to face with a wall. "Heh. Well then, up & over!"

Spinning around, he faced the large boulder as it sped towards him. Exhaling, his grip tightened, sprinting forward he brought the spear overhead before jamming its tip into the ground and thrusting himself up and over the boulder. Tucking his knee's to his chest, arms wrapped around his legs and flipping over. Landing in a tumble he rolled atop the stone floor before springing to his feet and continuing onwards.

Pulling out two shuriken, both arms came to a cross in front of his face. Like an Umpire called "safe" he arms parted quicker then a bolt of lightning. Both shuriken sent flying at his opponent. But that was only the start of it.

Like a bullet train, Koga was still speeding forward, gathering all the speed he could before following up with a flying knee.

As the boulder traveled forward and his opponent darted for safety, Kisuke was already in the midst of a follow up attack. In his head, he calculated possible escapes and counters his opponent might come up with. Given the information since the start of the battle, his opponent seemed like a close up, in-your-face, kind of fighter; which meant that if he avoided the boulder, he'd probably be aiming to get up close and personal again. So, Kisuke considered two things: he'd either try and catch the boulder and toss it out of his way, or he'd dodge it. But whichever path he chose, Kisuke counted on the same follow up attack: coming in close for another attack.

Having already been preparing for such an event, by the time his opponent leaped over the boulder, he'd already completed his hand signs. Steadily holding the last sign in place, Kisuke held his position and ducked and turned his head, quickly and easily avoiding the incoming shuriken. "Doton: Kaika Hana." He let out softly, though audibly, before the Earth around his feet began to churn rapidly before rising up around him like a flower in bloom. Hardening quickly, six spears of earth extended from the small shield of Earth around Kisuke; all at their maximum distance. With six feet of distance between them, Kisuke couldn't be touched by the flying knee or another taijutsu based strike. Moreover, since his opponent was flying through the air, avoiding the six spears would be close to impossible; that is, unless he had some special technique to move him out of the way, while not falling into the hole created by the boulder during its creation.

Lowering his hands, Kisuke watched as the Earth around him acted upon his will. And, with a quick jut of his eyes, he looked over to see the damage his boulder had caused. The crash of the boulder into the wall had sent a large network of cracks up the wall, compromising the structural integrity of the wall and half of the roof above them. Making sure to keep a keen eye on things, Kisuke fixed his eyes on his opponent and waited for what was to come next...

Spoiler:
Name: Doton: Kaika Hana - Blooming Flower
Rank: C
Range: Close ~ Mid
Jutsu Type: Ninjutsu
Elemental Affinity: Doton
Clan: N/A
Description: After forming the necessary sequence of hand seals, the Earth around Kisuke's feet will churn slightly and rise to about hip level. The decoration that the earth rises, if seen from an arial view, would depict a Blooming Flower; hence the name of the technique. It only takes a second for the flower to bloom, and once it has, several large earthen spikes can shoot out from any one of the flower petals. The spikes can be, at most, six feet in length and roughly one foot thick. The spikes cannot be shot out at a distant opponent, however, can be used for jabbing damage and close and mid ranges.

These spikes are also flexible, as they can be retracted and extened again, at any moment. Moreover, at any one time, up to ten spikes may be extended. This jutsu will last for several minutes [Four posts] before the flower dies and the earth returns to normal (and consumes c-rank level chakra per post).

Like a stone skipping over a pond Koga was thrown back to the ground. His body rolled and skipped atop the hard floor until is came to a screeching halt. Nearly standing atop his head; his legs point to the sky. Dropping like a ton of bricks his legs collapsed to the ground. The bone rattling force of the impact coursed threw out his body. Had it been anyone else they would have been skewered threw-and-threw like a piece of meat on a kabob. Luckily he wasn't just anybody. While his skin like armor may have saved his life, it didn't do so without receiving quite a chink.

Stunned, not by the force, but out of confusion as to what had just happened, he lay upon the ground.
Time seemed to slow for Koga as he lay upon the ground. Gazing upon the moon which loomed over head. Clear night skies were illuminated by the Moon's grace. Gazing upon it, and it upon him, Koga found himself captivated.

Snapping back to reality, Koga's body began to rise. Doing so in a weird, and almost unsettling manner. Appearing as if his body was a puppet on strings, his chest was lifted from the ground. Arms and head still servants to gravity as arms lay towards the ground and head tilted back. Standing tall his head swung upon the axis of his neck before slouching over. His entire torso soon followed.

Like the walking dead, Koga began to move in; his movements slow but steady as he inched closer to his prey.

His counter: Perfect. He'd managed to land his strike, again, but with the same effect as the last. For some reason, he couldn't pierce the skin of his opponent. Any normal foe would have been skewered perfectly considering the circumstance, but for some reason - twice now - this man seemed to be invulnerable to piercing attacks. But to what ened? If his impressive defense was the result of a technique, there had to be some limit. Maybe the number of attacks he could abosrb was limited or the defensive strength paled in comparison to stronger attacks. If anything, it had to be limited by chakra. No one can use a technique without chakra. But that left one more question...

How much chakra did he have?

Regardless, Kisuke watched his opponent close as he slowly rose back to his feet. The way he rose was a bit demonic, but he tried not to pay any mind to it. Instead, he kept a close as as his opponent inched forward. "Hmpf... Your defence is rather impressive, but how much can you take?" Kisuke asked almosted rhetorically; not really expecting him to answer. For the time being, he waited for him to come closer into range.

He wanted to learn more about his opponent before foolishly mounting an attack on someone he couldn't cut through. So for now, he'd wait. And, by the looks of it, he wouldn't have to wait too long...

Raising his head Koga peered into the eyes of his foe. With the earth still at his side he would run into trouble should he recklessly charge in. But simply standing in the back and waiting wouldn't get him anywhere either. He needed a way to break his guard and secure a knockout.

But how...

With about a meter remaining between them his eyes began to dance across the room. To his left stood a series of large stone pillars supporting the ceiling. A possible solution. Turning his head to his right his eyes came across his wooden geta and the earthen spear which he had dropped. Here in lye a better solution.

Dashing to his right at break neck speed Koga snatched the spear from the ground before picking up his wooden sandals. With an eye fixed on his opponent he remained cautious of any movements. Putting further distance between them Koga made his way for the outer walls. Using a pillar as cover he took a moment to pull three explosive tags from his pouch. Slapping two of the tags onto each sandal. Dropping them to the ground he slid both feet into the sandals loosely. And placing his last remaining tag on the spear.

This would work.
It had to work.

Once again charging at his opponent his torso lowered it'self to the ground as he picked up speed. Growing closer and closer he kept an eye out for incoming spikes; which he suspected would come fast. Bobbing and weaving he would inch his way closer and closer until he was close enough to lay his trap.

Jumping into the air Koga would climb high above his opponent. Meanwhile his sandals would remain stapled to the ground like time bombs. Flying over head Koga would take advantage and fire the spear at the boy from a higher angle before landing (hopefully) safely on the ground a reasonable distance away before activating all three explosive tags.

The end result would hopefully be a defeated opponent, or at the very least a light show.

Watching his opponent closely, Kisuke watched as the man made a mad dash for the earthen Lance he'd created before...and then he hid behind a pillar. Whatever reason he hid behind the pillar, Kisuke knew it had to do with strategizing. He was up to something that he didn't want to be seen, which wasn't good. Considering his options and following actions quickly, Kisuke prepared a simple set of hand signs. And then it happened: his opponent shot around the pillar with impressive speed and charged straight for him. He'd already seen the power of his Kaika Hana, why would he charge in again? The only logical explanation was that there was an ulterior motive for this action.

In response to the charge, the earthen flower petals shot forward again, all shooting in manners which would try to dictate and assume movement patterns and hopefully land a decisive blow; however, then the man launched himself high into the air. Predictable... Kisuke shot his eyes up at the man, looked at the face of his own Lance, although, without fear.

As his foe's arm pulled back, to throw, Kisuke turned to his right and began another violent spinning motion. Doton: Jiten! The Lance shot forward quickly, but not penetrating the Doton Rotation. The Lance met the hardened defense just moments before the explosions set off. The only direct explosion came from the Lance, at such a close range. The sandals that exploded, although Kisuke wasn't aware of them, their effectiveness was severely reduced. Thanks to the whole that was right in front of Kisuke's defensive structures, their explosion would have been off set and more distance. More than that, they would have had to punch through the petals of the Kaika Hana technique and the Rotation technique. Virtually, they didn't do a whole lot...

The Lance was a bit of another story. The Jiten technique was an impressive defensive technique, but an explosion at such a close range definitely rattled Kisuke around a bit. And, as a result of the three explosions, a huge cloud of dust shot into the air, clouding all vision of Kisuke and the earthen structures; making it very difficult to tell whether or not they were still standing.

All was quiet while the dust took its time settling. If one listened closely, the collapsing of structures could faintly be heard every few seconds...

Shaken and with a small line of blood running down his lower lip, Kisuke stood several feet away from his foe and prior position. It was now as if he and his opponent had traded positionings. "Not bad..." He said in a lowly voice as the a few more collapsing noises could be heard and the dust settled more greatly. Then, he coughed once before a loud cracking noise could be heard as well.

A close look around would show an impressive net work of cracks all around the room. The boulder stunt and the explosions did a number on the structural integrity of the room, and now...it seemed like the it couldn't, or wouldn't, take anymore. The columns which supported the ceiling began to rumble and fall apart. The walls lost chunks before pieces of the ceiling gave way and descended upon the two. Watching as a particularly large piece of the ceiling feel just to his right, Kisuke began another sequence of hand signs and rotated once more; just before the entire ceiling, and each of the columns gave way and caved in on Koga and Kisuke both.

The only thing was... Kisuke had a defense, and unless his opponent had been hiding something, he'd be crushed along with the tables and chairs that were sitting around as well. And, maybe his defense wasn't perfect, but it'd allow him to escape most all of the hell that had found it's way into his fight.

It simply churns around him defensively, and then falls away as the rotating ceases; therefore, Kisuke will not be without sight for longer than the period he is rotating. It should be noted, however, that this defensive jutsu can be pierced by other jutsu of a higher rank, or mutliple jutsu of equal rank/strength.

With dust and debris filling the air as the ceiling began to cave in around, Koga, found himself in quite the predicament.

"Oh Damn..." Eye wide like a newborn baby he looked upon the crumbling stadium. Struck with both fear and awe, he was frozen in place. Hurdling towards the ground a giant slab of stone feel from the ceiling. Shattering upon impact a large shot at Koga. Still frozen in place and oblivious to the incoming shrapnel he was thwacked from his blindside. Flying to the side his body rolled across the ground like a rag-doll.

Snapped back to reality Koga immediately sprung to his feet for a split second before dropping to one knee. The large stone boulder which sent him flying had managed to do more damage then his opponent had. Within moments his right shoulder began to swell and darken. Changing from his usual tan skin-tone to a dark purple. His arm sagged towards the ground. Using his left hand he clenched his wounded shoulder before rising to his feet again. There wasn't time to be standing still.

Fighting threw the pain Koga did his best to move towards the out walls. With the stone columns beginning to fall around him the safest place with the most structural integrity would be the outer walls. That would be his safest bet if he wished to make it out alive.

Which he did!

As the stone ceiling came baring down, Kisuke protected himself from the immediate threats and spun. The spinning defensive motion of his Jiten technique sent the falling debris, which could have crushed him, flying and in opposite directions. That which fall from above him passed harmlessly away; the smaller pieces at least. Just when he thought he was home free, a particularly large piece of the ceiling fell, combating the Jiten with its immense weight. Kisuke's rotation slowed, so to prevent being crushed, he completed one more rotation before leaping out of the way.

Having leaped out of the way, the large chunk of ceiling took a second before come down upon the position Kisuke was in. Well, it looks like the plan went over well...even though I was almost crushed... Kisuke thought to himself before standing up. Where he was the ceiling had already come down around him, so there was nothing left to fall on him. Now the ceiling was receeding towards the walls, and after that the hellish assault would be over.

His plan had gone over well, though; and although he couldn't quite see his opponent just yet, bringing the ceiling down on him and using the entire room to his advantage had to have some sort of positive affect. He didn't count on his opponent helping him out with the explosions, though. That bit was a toss of the coin. It rattled him up a bit, but helped with his cause in the end.

A bit shaken and distraught, still with a line of blood down his mouth, Kisuke searched the room as the dust cleared. Not willing to give his opponent an inch of comfort or opportunity, though, Kisuke prepared a set of hand signs and whispered silently. "Ga-netto Soroi..." The all the earth now at his feet crept above, slidding up his body and covering Kisuke in a suit of earthen armor. If his foe was still alive, at least he'd be prepared.

Spoiler:
Name: Ga-netto Soroi - Suit of Garnet
Rank: C
Range: Self
Jutsu Type: Supplementary//Ninjutsu
Elemental Affinity: Doton
Clan: N/A
Description: The first stage in a series of Jutsu Kisuke plans to develop, Ga-netto Soroi is a low level defensive technique, that can be used offensively. After completing the necessary set of hand seals, the ground around Kisuke's feet will creep up his body and meld together to form a suit of armor.

This armor has moderate strength, and can be reformed so long as there is earth readily available; at the cost of more chakra, of course. Stats for the armor are as follows:


D-Rank attack: 80% weakened
C-Rank: 40% weakend
B-Rank: 20% weakend
A-Rank: No effect - Broken
S-Rank: No effect - Broken

Wearing this suit decreases Kisuke's speed and manueverability; however, it increases his defensive capabilities as well as his physical impact. Taijutsu may come slower, but with a much heavier hit, as it is backed by a fist, foot, or leg of stone. Another downfall in this technique is that it prevents the usage of anything other than Doton style jutsu while in effect.
This jutsu can last, at maximum, for a total of ten minutes [six posts] before falling apart. However, at the cost of an equal amout of chakra to create the armor, the entire suit can be regenerated at the end of the time period without the use of hand signs. This is only possible if the armor has not already falled off, however. (Consumes c-rank level chakra per post)
