Indeed from an infinite darkness this clan was born. The survivors of a devastating massacre of an entire island, the family that would grow to become a clan spent the first few years of their existence trying to rebuild a society that was lost. Only through the use of sacred magic, the precursor to modern ninjutsu, and sheer determination did they survive, though survive was a little bit of an overstatement. On an island covered in an unholy everlasting darkness and demons that walked the night like it was the day they managed to make their home. They survived by their magics, honing them into a series of secret techniques, but eventually the struggle became too great, and they were forced to leave traversing the seas until they found a new land.
Eventually they found the Island that had formerly housed Kirigakure, but not knowing this, they simply took up residence along with the survivors of this massacre trying to blend into society that was dominated by ninja. The differences were subtle, but enough to cause them to seclude themselves, and over the course of a few years they found themselves on the outskirts of civilization. All together tired of it, they wandered to the area of the island inhabited by only creatures that seemed more dead than alive, ghosts and demons warped by chakra. Oddly enough, these creatures were quite similar to the ones they had dealt with so many years before, their techniques working just as effectively there as on their island. Eventually, they used the area as a sort of training grounds, a test of strength and character, and though many died, it became a way of life for them.
With newfound strength and will, they returned to society, though many saw their arts as evil or corrupted. They eventually assimilated bits and pieces of normal culture, seemingly blending in with the other chakra users, but still keeping the deep dark secret of their skills and their hidden training grounds.
Kekkei Genkai//Bloodline of the Clan:
Ryokusenkō or Green Flash is the term given to rare optical phenomena that occur shortly after sunset or before sunrise, when a green spot is visible for a short period of time above the sun, or a green ray shoots up from the sunset point. According to Pirate Lore, it was believed that the green flash signified the return of a soul from the land of the dead. On their island, a tremendous green explosion preceeded the perpetual night that covered their island, a rift in the dimensional fabric opening the pathway between the living and the dead.
The green explosion changed them too, over time allowing them the ability to see in the dark, or more importantly to see the things that inhabited the dark. A type of dojutsu, the clan possess eyes that can pierce the darkness, revealing the chakra of things both living and deceased, human and not so human. While on their island, keeping the eyes on was a necessity, but once they left, it became more of a burden, the ability to see the living and dead overwhelming their sense of life and death. To that effect, they found themselves able to activate and deactivate the ability through concentration of their chakra. When activated, their eyes become green, though the shade varies from person to person, with a ring of black creating a sort of halo around the pupil.
On the matters of chakra, the rift seemed to have affected their chakra, transforming its normally invisible nature into a visible green whenever manifested outside of their body. This chakra on its own seems to have no change other than that, but when mixed with elemental chakra, it changes it, destabilizing it in some cases, or changing its nature altogether in others. The unusual change is capped off by its strange green color.
Fire- Flames become spectral in nature, giving off no heat and physically causing no burns, but causing tremendous pain just as if it were real fire.
Water- The water has taken on a more spiritual nature, used as a cleansing tool. It has the properties to reverse or sate negative thoughts or emotions temporarily, and can be used to remove genjutsu and seals from affeted individuals. In higher ranks this effect can be reversed, inducing negative emotions and behaviors in those that contact it.
Earth- While its normal properties seem to be the same, It has the unique ability to provide a medium for spirits. It can be used as corporeal bodies for them or as simple containers for souls that have not fully departed to the next world.
Wind- The wind element, or more specifically air, is an important part of life and death. This element has transformed into a carrier element, making the transfer of chakra infinitely more easy. Similar to breathing in and out, one can move their chakra in and out of their body, giving life to the lifeless or in higher ranks taking it away. Wind nature chakra can be condensed to form near intangible bodies for spirits, or for the creation of "Ghosts"
Lightning- Closest to the green flash, this element seemingly is the only one unchanged. Its raw power becomes spiritually charged, dealing powerful damage to both physical and/or spiritual creations. It can also be used for strong barriers and even to etch seals onto people, places, or things.
- Clan Training :: While many members of the clan are not shinobi, they all still posses the clans bloodline, in varying amounts of course, and so must train, at least to be able to manage their own odd talents. For warriors, they are foreced at a young age to battle in the sacred training grounds, honing their skills in actual combat. For others, simple training with others, or independent practice will suffice. The three main aspects that the clan focuses on are Ninjutusu, Sealing, and purification, with the majority of clan members knowing how to seal minor spirits or to destroy them by the genin age.
- Population :: This clan is tiny, rivaling a large family at most, with under 50 people. Most members have dark colored hair and dark to medium colored eyes, which change to green when their Dojutsu is activated. They are generally slim to athletic, and have been known to live lengthy lives, though the effects of aging are indeed very obvious. The traditional clan attire is reminiscent of monk robes, though traditional clothing is often seen. In the younger generations, modern clothing is quite common.
- Nature//Values :: Neutrality would be a good term for their relations with humans, they try to stay out of conflict, be it to intervene, or causing it. When it comes to demons, monsters, and spirits though, they take a very active role in trying to rid their world of them, for fear that what happened to their island could happen to the entire world. That being the case, many Members of this clan take up work as shamans, fortune tellers, and spirit conjurers.
