Meandering [Arz]

This forest is by far the most natural thing left on the country. It spans around the entire country, with only the center taken down to clear for the village. It is a beautiful place to walk in, even the animals within it are quite peaceful with rarely any deaths ever happening within it. It has become even ritual to send the youth into the village to gain a respect over what nature can create.

The peaceful allure of the forest set her mind at ease. Within the confines of the thickened canopy Tsubasa trudged along at a lackadaisical pace, unconcerned with the efforts and tidings of the world about her. Each step brought with it the quaint crunch of flora, matched only by the natural fauna engaged as it was in an orchestration of nature. The soft earthen tones of the wilderness brought serenity and cool, calm breezes swept across the inhabitants in a welcoming embrace. Branches ruffled in the wind, their leaves swaying and mimicking waves upon a shore, echoed across and beyond the confines of the woodland dreamscape.

Despite her pleasure at the environment the lone Shinobi was set in stark contrast. A vibrant, red dress adorned her torso, embroidered with white strappings that matched the color her hair. A mass of tangled tresses and locks swept to and fro in transit, their occasional meanderings highlighting the series of gold and white tattoos that decorated the entirety of the woman's exposed skin. And of that there was a great deal. Her arms and legs were open for viewing along with a substantial degree of cleavage. Attractive, seductive, but otherwise indisposed, it was apparent that she very much did not belong.

In a moment of indecision the woman paused. A grunt escaped her lips as she reached aside and into the pack that graced her side, the top flipped over to reveal an assortment of instruments concoctions. She withdrew a flask from the main pocket and tipped it up to her lips. Annoyance crossed her countenance. No liquid sprang from the container. Son of a bitch. The trek to this blasted island had left her not only physical exhausted but not without the comfort of her preferred drink.

What a nuisance.

Soragakure was... nice, all things considered. Exotic, in a way that was both amazing and off-putting. It wasn't the height that he found odd, for a man who could fly or otherwise navigate the skies under his own power had nothing to fear from a fall. Rather, he viewed the entire city with a sort of morbid curiosity, wondering what might happen should the city simply... stop, if the engines of crystals or whatever held the nation aloft simply cease to generate power. If the village dropped from the sky like a meteor, would people have time to evacuate, would anything survive the crash?

What would happen if it were to crash land upon another village?

For the most part, however, it was easy to forget that Soragakure was actually flying. Sure, the sky seemed a bit closer, the horizon a little odd, but... unless one wandered towards the border it wasn't too bad. Different from home, or at least different from the lands he had once considered to be his home. Home was a forgotten concept as of late, however. There was the fight outside, where his goals clashed with those of others, and the fight inside, where he was at war with himself.

He stood in a small clearing in the forest, several hundred yards away from the edge of the forest, and of the village itself. Garbed in all black, from the boots upon his feet to the hooded cloak casting shadows over his face, he had approached in the night, slipping into the village without so much as raising an alarm. He could have entered the traditional way, of course, but it wasn't worth being recognized, not before he found the one he had been seeking.

He inhaled deeply, nostrils flaring as he took in the scents of the forest, the trees and the pollen, and even the vague stench of of the village, the pocket of humanity in the center of the forest. There was another scent, however; something different, something familiar and arcane.. something powerful. He grinned, lips slipping back to reveal razor sharp canines, before striding purposefully in the direction of the woman's scent.

They had met in a forest once before, he recalled as he walked. Once in a cave, once in a forest, once upon the battlefield during a full fledged war... he wondered if she would remember.

Tsubasa shifted. Shizuka stirred.

The woman grabbed at her face. Her knuckles contorted as she wove chakra into her own flesh, the calm, smoothing technique doing nothing to halt the pain. She cried out and fell to her knees. Something ripped at her insides, it clawed and spat venom, it bore through her muscles and tore her skin off, spreading fire and chaos into the depths of her mind. In the breadth of a moment her eyes widened and she fell to the foliage below, her body limp and mind unfocused.

Only seconds past. Shizuka grunted and pushed herself up, brushing off the thickets from her form as she went. Where was she? That blasted girl was too good at resisting her; too many anomalies, too much to focus on. Whatever. She was in control now. For now. Already she could feel Tsubasa gnawing at the edges of her consciousness. Stubborn bitch.

Her body twitched. Several techniques extended from her body at once as she wove the apparent threads, cycling through those that were familiar and the new, interesting bits she did not remember. How had she become so good at this? A pang of jealousy and rage shot through her. She coiled her hand into a fist and slammed it into a nearby tree. The bark exploded off the surface and the innards were utterly destroyed. In a moaning echo the base collapsed upon itself and fell to her feet. Better.

Now, who was this? Shizuka's attention flickered. She felt someone near by. A Shinobi from the sense of it. With a growl and a roll of her eyes she turned toward the approaching offender and lifted a challenge through voice. Her tone was sharp and bored, vastly different than what was common.

"Best not to hide from me, I'm not known for my... patience."

"Hiding? Who's hiding?"

He continued his steady approach, noting the change in the arcane scent, the increase in power. The wolfish grin widened, one hand reaching across his chest to grip the shoulder of the dark cloak. Laughing softly to himself, he tore the material, throwing it aside where it caught the wind. The cloak removed, his features were revealed: loose black pants, tightly held to his waist with a dark belt, and tucked into similarly dark boots. A bare, muscular upper body, darkly tanned and crossed with countless thin, white scars, records of a lifetime of fighting. Dark brown hair hanging several inches above his shoulders, wild and spiked. Golden eyes with cat-like pupils found Tsubasa's own, and as he approached, a series of angry red markings spread across his flesh, deepening to a black, tribal design as they stilled. His right hand passed behind his back, making brief contact with a small metal box hanging from his belt, and emerged a moment later gripping a thick, western sword with a deep black hilt, a white flag carved and painted into the pommel.

"Was wondering if I'd ever track you down again."

Shizuka craned her head back and laughed. It was a mocking gesture. As she reveled in the threat a flash of gold erupted from her palms. The air grew heavy. A slow emanation of raw chakra seeped out of her body, its acidic touch washing out upon the forest and killing anything within the woman's immediate grasp. Green turned to black. Life shriveled and died within her very presence. Even the ground beneath her turned to darkened refuse. The aura highlighted her form as the tattoos adorning her flesh lit up in a brilliant display of power.

"You found me, dog." She grinned. "Is it what you expected it to be?"

She stood without much intent. Her eyes held a degree of disdain, a haughty appeal that ventured to the rest of her poise. It was apparent that she held not the slightest respect for whoever this was. Tsubasa knew. Shizuka could have cared less.

Without a word in reply, he stepped forward, raising the blade before his body. He began to sing softly under his breath, a quiet song sounding much better than one might expect from such a man. As he spoke, the sword began to burn brightly.
The Mindsword spun in the dawn's gray light, and men and demons knelt down before.
The Mindsword flashed in the midday bright, Gods joined the dance, and the march to war.
It spun in the twilight dim as well, and gods and men marched off to hell.

At the end of the song, the blade was gleaming like a sun-on-Earth, now held extended at his side to burn her eyes, while doing everything that could be done to spare his own. Despite the ungodly bright light emanating from the blade, the dark hilt seemed to pulse softly, hungrily, in stark contrast. From where he tightly held the weapon, a faint reaction could be seen taking place, a gradual darkening of the flesh, veins standing out, like some slow atrophy, or petrification. Golden eyes dulled ever so slightly, but if anything, his grin widened, revealing razor sharp teeth. Skulltwister had its price, as did most of his fabled blades, but it had always been a fun one to use... however much he pretended he had never so much as drawn it. The entrapping genjutsu radiated freely from the blade, piercing across the clearing to reach the woman.

He spoke softly, his words carrying an edge almost as sharp as the blade he held.
"Kneel."

Shizuka quirked a brow. There was a swift white flash from her forehead that even she appeared confused by. The genjutsu found her but the technique was snuffed out before it had even so much as taken hold. Nifty trick, that. Tsubasa has far more competent than she realized; whatever that was, it had just spared the woman some kind of hell.

"Kneel? Me?" She stifled a laugh. Only not really. She smirked. As she did there was a sudden change in the atmosphere. The subtle, uninteresting field became thick and laden with chakra. A dark, blistering energy erupted outward in a twenty meter spread from Shizuka. Energy became difficult to perceive, at least for those not responsible for the act.

"We don't want you doing that again, now do we? I think, little dog, you have made a terrible mistake." She offered him a quaint smile and raised her arms about her head, stretching as if she were bored enough to do so. "Would you mind, so terribly, coming over here and introducing yourself proper? I do so love civility."

Active Techniques
Spoiler:
Chakra Field [Floods area with Chakra, Detection Method]
Nullification Field [Nulls the use of Chakra]
Bloodline Terrace [Allows the Combination of Chakra/Nullification Field]
Celestial Rituals [Illusionary Disruption - Spent]

Name: Bloodline Terrace
Rank: A [The ability to Combine the Techniques]
Range: Varies.
Jutsu Type: Bloodline
Elemental Affinity: None
Clan: Naoru
Description: This ability has no use by itself, but is meant to be utilized in conjunction with two or more of the Naoru Bloodline techniques. The Bloodline Terrance combines two otherwise separate effects and mixes them together, making for unique and often dangerous concoctions. Ranks are established by taking the higher ranked ability of those involved and taking it up a single step. If two S ranked abilities are mixed than the technique will cost double the normal amount of S ranked chakra.

Nullifying Chakra Field - Chakra Field + Nullification Field
By first expelling the chakra field and then the nullifying energy, the user may extend to the range of the nullifying effect to a full ten meters and make it even more difficult for even those of a heightened control prowess to mold their chakra. The Naoru user will also be able now mold their own chakra freely.

Name: Nullification Field
Rank: A
Range: Mid [0-10m]
Jutsu Type: Bloodline
Elemental Affinity: None
Clan: Naoru
Description: The Nullifcation Field is used to prevent the use of Chakra in a particular area. The bloodline user cuts any line of the Naoru Tattoo Strands and releases an invisible, static field of energy that disrupts the flow and molding of chakra, rendering the use of techniques useless. This effect encompasses a full five meter diameter and affects any active chakra use, such as sending chakra through the air or ground or forming any sort of technique. This ability does not encompass passive chakra use, such as Fuuinjutsu seals that are always active or any abilities that have already been implemented and require only a Ninja's focus to remain in use. The 'burst' sent into the air is an immediate affect and it may be kept up by the bloodline user for as long as they are able to concentrate, though the user is unable to mold any chakra themselves. As a caveat, any Ninja that is extremely skilled with chakra control may overcome the technique and mold chakra as they normally would.

Name: Chakra Field
Rank: B
Range: Long [10m+]
Jutsu Type: Bloodline
Elemental Affinity: None
Clan: Naoru
Description:

Purpose - Utilitarian; the chakra field is used to alert the user to threats before they happen.

Mechanics - By cutting any tattoo strand on their body the Naoru user floods the immediate area with an invisible field of their own chakra, saturating everything in a full half-sphere for twenty meters. This field acts to detect any activity inside of it, reporting vibrations, movements, or even the molding of foreign chakra. The field may be held up for as long as the user wishes and can be used as a catalyst for other techniques, but in itself remains no more than a 'radar' of sorts.

Effect - No Negatives.

Time - Concentration.

The light from the blade slowly dimmed, eventually settling so as to make the blade appear to be of purest white, sharply contrasting the deep black hilt. His eyes flicked down towards his left hand for a moment, arm bent at the elbow as to allow his palm to face towards the sky. He frowned, a puzzled look passing across his face for a moment; whatever he had expected to happen, it wasn't happening. A glance back towards the woman, and a low growl; she was interfering somehow, hindering the use of chakra. Interestingly enough, his vision remained altered, his senses enhanced, and the overwhelming feeling of pure strength radiating from his limbs remained, along with the thick tribal markings. The technique was limited to the activation of new techniques, then?

Frustrating, but he had dealt with more severe handicaps in the past.

Keeping the blade held in a seemingly relaxed grip, tip just barely scraping the ground below, he slowly advanced, his movements measured and precise.

"Nice trick," he intoned smoothly, the corner of his lips lifting to reveal a razor sharp canine. "You're the first to resist Skulltwister's influence. We've met before, but..." His eyes narrowed slightly, liquid gold flecked with curious black pools. "But... you are not who you once were." A statement, not a question; the woman he had met in the past was erratic, yes, but nothing compared to the figure he now stood before, roughly an arm's length away. "Unsurprising that you don't remember me. The boy you met so far in the past is long dead."

"Ah ah," Shizuka extended a hand and held out her palm. "You get closer than and I'll make sure you're alive just long enough to feel your heart ripped out of your chest." She gave the boy a smile and ensured there was ample room to maneuver. As if to reinforce her warning a subtle flash of gold emitted from her arm. The tattoos there faded for just a moment before they took back their vibrant color. For just a moment Shizuka's countenance contorted in confusion.

The pause was replaced quickly by a mocking laugh.

"Long dead? Do you really think I care?" She snorted. Her eyes shifted to boy across from her and narrowed; her teeth were bared. What seemed like a jovial atmosphere became suddenly thick and heavy with hostility. "Are you insisting that you're a man now? Hm? All grown up are we? The aura of chakra about the woman flared. The ground beneath her feet warped and twisted with the raw, explosive energy, killing anything with even the faintest sign of life.

"Give me a reason, boy, beg me to care."

"Try it," he offered with a grim smile, "And you would find your own heart plucked free from your chest before you could cover even half the distance." His eyes traveled down her shapely figure, as if noticing it for the first time. "Suffice to say, ruining such a work of art would be a damn shame."

From his feet spread an aura of a dull gold, painting a radius around his body that stopped at the very edge of her own killing field. In the past, the gold would have been near blinding, now it seemed murky, somehow tainted. Reacting to the woman's hostility, he smiled savagely, everything from his expression to the very way he held himself almost daring her to breach the distance between their positions.

"Very well then... cutting to the chase, I've had my eyes on you for... quite some time. The first time we met, I noticed that there was something... strange about you. Something in your scent, your aura, your very attitude. As time passed, I came to understand exactly what I was sensing... Power. Something I have craved, something I have made my own, and yet... still something more. I sought you out, intending to ask you to share your secrets... but you're not the woman you were. I doubt you could even answer if you tried."

His grin widened; he had noticed the odd fluctuations of her tattoos, the look of confusion when they failed to respond.

"And yet, I prefer things this way... whoever you are now, you're exactly what I've been looking for. That killing field, that raw, bestial energy... that's what I've been seeking. I'd ask you to give it freely, offer myself as a template, and as payment, but... I rather doubt you would accept."

"I suppose I'll have to take it."

"You'll try."

Shizuka shrugged. Two fingers shot into the air as a line of red energy trailed off of them. Her hand shot through the air in a series of blindly quick motions; one seal, a second, they all rushed passed one another. In conjunction with the designs a mess of similar symbols appeared on the ground beneath Otoha's feet. And other places. The trees, the foliage, all about the young man they shimmered into existence. And before even the second one was finished her opposing hand flickered in a single seal.

They explosions started all at once.

Concentrated, raw chakra explosions. They erupted as the Shinobi moved. Three meters in all directions lit up in brilliant, golden fire, tearing the surroundings apart in an unforgiving mass of violence. All the while Shizuka remained in place, her countenance alight with a driving, hideous passion.



Techniques Used
Spoiler:
Name: Combat Mine
Rank: B
Range: Contact
Jutsu Type: Fuuinjutsu
Element Affinity: N/A
Clan: None
Description

A simple inscription, Combat Mines are essentially explosive tags with a higher concentrated effect and a self activated trigger. The Shinobi forms three concise seals in their entirety and imbues the result with a small degree of their own chakra. The seal amplifies this effect and melds into whatever material it is attached to, lying dormant until any form of contact is made. The Mine itself is a half-meter in diameter and upon contact with any physical object it explodes, the eruption reaching a diameter of three meters in all directions. If the Shinobi wishes, they may choose to activate this technique from a distance by utilizing a single seal. They may activate as many as they wish at any given time.

Name: Inscription
Rank: D
Range: Contact
Jutsu Type: Fuuinjutsu, Chakra Control
Element Affinity: N/A
Clan: None
Description

Allows the Shinobi to inscribe seals by shoving raw chakra into any surface. The seals form automatically, imprinting themselves on the mundane plane in which they Shinobi makes contact with. They may choose to use this technique to inscribe such seals on a human body, but they must possess a Chakra Control specialty, and even then any opponent equally skilled in the art may easily disperse of the seals. This technique may be used to inscribe any seal that the user knows. The seals are stylized however the user wishes.

Name: Projection
Rank: C
Range: Mid [0m - 5m]
Jutsu Type: Fuuinjutsu, Chakra Control
Element Affinity: N/A
Clan: None
Description

Playing off the Inscription technique Projection allows for the former ability to be utilized from a distance. So long as the Shinobi can see the area in which they wish to form the seal they may project their chakra into the target surface. All of the stipulations for the Inscription technique still apply. Projection is triggered by a healthy dose of chakra sent into the air and the Shinobi mimicking the writing they wish to inscribe by 'drawing' in the air. This technique does not necessarily need to be used for seals. The Shinobi may choose to just draw or write from a distance.

As a side, if combined with the Narou Clan technique "Chakra Field" the range of this technique extends toward the edge of the field as the Shinobi's chakra is flooding that area.

As the seals formed, Otoha moved. No time to prepare a movement technique, she had managed to spread everything out well enough that there were no obvious openings, no ways to escape that wouldn't involve crossing a seal, risking that it might detonate before he made it to safety. Foolish, that he hadn't taken one of her arms the very instant she had so much as twitched, before the seals had been formed.

Foolish.

Movement was out of the question, so that left only defense. The blade fell free from his right hand, palmed smoothly by the left and swept around his waist where it would make contact with the case strapped to his back, being sealed once more. Already a black mass surged across his skin, wrapping to fit each limb, to cover all exposed flesh, and finally expanding, hardening, the intricate carvings like finest art visible as the first explosion tore free.

The explosions ripped across the area, but the man remained, laughing, laughing throughout it all, a harsh, damaged sound. When the blasts had cleared, when vision had returned, he remained intact, armor hardly singed, but breaking apart and falling away, unneeded, having served its purpose. A surge of lightning from the man's flesh, and he flickered, vanished, a series of soft pulses of light serving as the only tell while he crossed the battlefield in a series of quick, angular movements, putting himself in her blind spot even as the final chunk of armor finally reached the ground below, scattering away as a a fine dust in the wind.

He scowled; the air around the woman was harsh, her aura unbearable. Nevertheless, he struck, a lightning-charged fist rushing forward, aimed for the small of her back. As he breached her aura's limits, pain spread up his arm, the faint corruption from his cursed blade flaring up for a moment, the flesh upon his hand actually bubbling and peeling away as if dipped in acid, so harsh were her defenses. Nevertheless, he pressed on; upon contact, should contact be made, a burst of raiton would transfer from his body into hers, a physical blow converted into energy. If she found the time to look, his hand, ruined by her aura's assault, wouldn't appear as one might expect, having been stripped of flesh. No muscle, no bone, and no crimson blood; merely a deep black, both forming the mass, and dripping free from said mass, staining the ground below, killing life just as her own touch had done.

Techniques Used
Spoiler:
Heavy Armor: A Rank

Name: Dendouyoroi [Electric Armor]
Rank: B
Range: Supplementary
Jutsu Type: Taijutsu
Elemental Affinity: Raiton
Clan: N/A

Description: The Electric Armor technique is intended for use as an unarmed, bare-handed supplement to taijutsu. Providing the body with a steady but limited flow of Raiton chakra, this technique allows the user to move faster and hit harder than most their rank, with a rough increase in power and speed of about one-fourth more than what they should be capable of. When channeling this ability, the user exhibits a faint yellow aura, complete with blue sparks jetting across their skin, and a static-like effect to their hair. With physical contact in this form, the user's physical blow is converted into an electric shock, dealing damage with the energy, rather than physical force. While the user can increase the chakra flow to a boost of one half, it is not increased, as the increase in power in speed past expected parameters comes with damage to the user's muscles surpassing that of the Shindou Sochi technique, effectively crippling them in battle following the post their limit is broken in.

Name: Shindou Sochi
Rank: B
Range: Close
Jutsu Type: Taijutsu
Elemental Affinity: Raiton
Clan: N/A

Description:
The Shindou Sochi, or "Shock Step" is a taijutsu technique developed by Otoha Nue. It revolves around footwork, and the precise movements involved with controlling ones position on the battlefield. Unlike Fuuton Taijutsu techniques that might allow the user to cover great distances in the blink of an eye, Shindou Sochi is intended for quick, precise movements. By focusing Raiton chakra to their legs, the user is able to stimulate their muscles into a proverbial overdrive, pushing them past their normal limits. When added to the natural speed boost that one receives while focusing chakra to their legs, this means their footwork would be above and beyond that of another shinobi they fought, when proporly applied. This technique doesn't focus on linear movements from point A to point B, and as such, is not intended for running, although it can be used for a quick getaway when applied with the proper distraction. Through the use of Shindou Sochi, the user is able to make a series of quick movements, punctuated by a flash of Raiton chakra, which serves to draw the opponent's eye, although the point of their opponent's focus isn't a major factor in its use. Moving at a series of close angles, the user quickly leaves their opponent's field of vision, actually appearing as a blur, or vanishing entirely. The blur effect is a simple optical illusion caused by their erratic movements, not due to their speed. The upsides to this technique include dodging and repositioning themselves at a high speed, allowing for better openings. The downsides mainly revolve around the strain to their muscles; using this technique repeatedly in quick succession could cause major damage to the user's legs, and the chakra network within.

Current limitations: As Otoha's rank has increased, so too has his skill with this technique, and his body's ability to stand up to the stress involved. As a Jounin, having made Shindou Sochi his signature technique since his genin years, Otoha is able to make use of the technique without any damage to his own body.

Within the field she had no blindspot.

She lowered her hands and ceased the explosions. She felt chakra as it was melded throughout the area, both impressed and annoyed that he was somehow able to bypass the nullification technique. A nuisance in the least, but the trait ignored her, and it was apparently in her features. Her shoulders twitched, oddly.

As Otoha came foward, Shizuka smirked. His motions swept through her senses despite her eyes not being able to follow them. She did not so much as move. No steps, not even the flick of her hand, instead another set of the golden tattoos flashed. A sudden eruption of raw chakra exploded out from the woman's back. A cone of golden energy lashed out at the incoming Shinobi, sweeping to intercept both the assault and the one responsible for it.

She did not look at this hand, nor did she bother to turn around. The raw force of the chakra was enough to tear a man in half, if he was so desperate to land a hit; so be it.

Techniques Used
Spoiler:
Name: Blast Shield
Rank: A
Range: Close [0-5m]
Jutsu Type: Bloodline
Elemental Affinity: None
Clan: Naoru
Description: Defensive in origin, Blast Shield unleashes a sharp blast of raw chakra from the bloodline user to cancel any technique sent at the caster that possesses a physical incarnation. This technique uses either the tattoo strands on the wrists and hands or ankles and feet and requires a physical motion to accompany the release of chakra. Once the ability is utilized the chakra will manfiest in whatever form the ninja prefers in a cone that spreads out from their body by five meters, crashing into anything sent in their direction and rendering the technique useless. In this respect, the shield can also be used as an offensive maneuver, cutting through any object or material within its range. The Blast Shield is overpowered by anything higher than it in rank, making S rank techniques able to bypass it. Due to Blast Shield's use of raw chakra it has no weaknesses toward any elements.

The blast caught Otoha by surprise, the Jounin barely having enough time to force out another use of the Shock Step, still barely managing to ride out the shock wave, the sharpness to the attack tearing across his face from jaw to forehead, splitting diagonally in an impressive blow. The reminder of the force carried through his body, blowing him clear off his feet, spine meeting the closest tree at his back with an astounding force, a crack running the length of the trunk, but not, oddly enough, his bones. He swore quietly, spitting black blood even as more ran into his mouth. The wound was a disturbing sight, to be sure; where another man might display muscle, or even bone from so deep of a cut, only the same inky blackness beneath the flesh of his burned hand was revealed.

One hand braced against the ground, he struggled towards his feet, silent agony burning in his dull, golden eyes. He needed to be stronger, needed more power... but it wasn't worth sinking the village, wasn't worth his own assured destruction merely to see the woman die. Her death would counteract his plans anyway.. Swearing once more, he fell back, body braced against the damaged tree as he slid towards the ground.

"It is your victory," he growled, clearly hating to admit as much. "You deserve more credit than I allowed."
Push your care, push your burdens aside, erase everything inside and leave just one thing on your mind.

"Child." Shizuka raised a hand. The field pulsed and an invisible chakra cresent slammed into Otoha. A second followed. A third. They tore at his exposed flesh as only raw energy could, searing through the mess that was the boy's skeleton. The last did not bring pain; instead, it seeped into his chakra network and spread like a cancer, stemming his nerves and rendering his body utterly useless.

The woman snorted and closed the distance between the two of them. Each step brought death. She paused and gloated over the beaten form of her "aggressor", marveling long enough for the pale aura about her person to die off. Her palms took on a golden glow as she knelt over Otoha, her lips curled into a sadistic grin.

"You were outmatched from the start. Did you think someone as... weak... as you could even think to beat me?" Her laugh was a hollow echo, a wretched cry of pain. "I'll give you this, child, I'll let you play." She laid her hands upon his barren chest.

The pain was overwhelming.

Shizuka seared the seals into his flesh. She took her time, carving the intricate designs with a divine precision. With one hand she funneled an unyielding supply of chakra into Otoha's system, healing his body and preventing the shock from killing him; the other ripped and tore, it bore into bone, it imprinted an array of demonic markings that pulsed with the darkness already within him. They meshed and melded with one another as she shifted from the chest to the head, her face alight with a dissonant passion.

An hour passed. Maybe longer. When she was finished Shizuka lifted herself and sighed, her gaze lingering over her work. She had repaired the damage done, the torn flesh, the damages caused by herself and others. What remained was a different person, a 'renewed' Otoha. Any imperfections had vanished, his strength now doubled. Her markings appeared over his face and chest, swirling about in jagged, harsh edges that pained the eye to follow. He would feel he difference. He would know what to do with it.

And she would watch. As she always did.


THINGS GIVEN
Spoiler:
Celestial Rituals - Celestial Gift, Abyssal Revelations
Genetic Workup - Any problems Otoha had are now gone. He also looks more devilish, because why the [badword] not.
Things Taken - Basic genome data so Shizuka can [badword] him if necessary.
