Inuzuka
Sahic7f.png

Though they now call the Leaf village their home and have taken on a more humane lifestyle, the Inuzuka were not always this way; they take pride in being able to trace their nomadic heritage prior to the formation of any Shinobi village, a time were they lived in the wilderness side-by-side as beasts. Some say they had been the first to tame mankind's best friend, while others claim their ancestors were descendant of beasts themselves. In either case; none are more wild in spirit than the Inuzuka.

Wild Soul - Passive
Though many Inuzuka have calmed down over the generations to better fit the structured Shinobi life, there is still the fire within burning from a time where survival-of-the-fittest was in full force; where they were no less savage than the beasts they lived and fought with. Nothing brings forth this fierceness more than the thrill of battle.

Rank 1/2/3: The user gains +1/+2/+2 acc to a single [Taijutsu Subtype] of their choice. While the user has any amount of Temporary HP, they deal +5%/+10%/+15% damage to the same [Taijutsu Subtype].

Notes:
  • The [Taijutsu Subtype] is chosen at the time of obtaining Inuzuka, and must be noted in the user's Dojo thread.
  • The user may swap the [Taijutsu Subtype] using the same rules as learning/unlearning abilities with a 100 word RP.


---

Animal Companion - Passive
If their physical features were not enough to identify a Inuzuka, then the next most distinguishing aspect may be their closeness to the animals of nature, capable of communicating with them through both complex growls and sounds or simple body gestures. This is best emphasized by the bond they can form, becoming companions to the point where the two are near inseparable.

Rank 1/2/3: The user has an Animal Companion which has up to 25%/50%/75% of the user’s stats.

The Animal Companion works as follows:
  • The Animal Companion Class has a 40 HP Mod, and may move acc as per Custom Class rules.
  • They do not have CP, and are immune to CP Damage Effects and Chakra Burn.
  • Cannot use Ninjutsu or Genjutsu techniques
  • Can only perform Bloodline and Taijutsu Techniques that the user knows, but does not require CP to do so.
  • Animal Companion’s do not have AP.
  • Animal Companion’s have 4 conditional slots, that may be used to take actions.
  • Animal Companion’s actions are reflexive, so the timing is worked off the triggering action.
  • May have 1 custom weapon using normal custom weapon creation rules.
  • Has a single inventory slot.
  • Animal Companion’s may enter into the same Style as the user for the same AP cost.
  • The Animal Companion and the user share a combo slot.

Rank 1/2/3: While active the user gains a +5%/10%/15% auto-dodge. Additionally, the user may select one weapon in their inventory, this is now passively equipped. Upon entering this style, and every round after, the user may spend 3%/4%/5% Max CP to gain Temporary HP equal to the spent chakra.

Notes:
  • Temporary HP gained this way is not lost at the end of the round.
  • The Temporary HP also applies to the Animal Companion.
---

Vicious Hunger - Buffing Taijutsu
There is a secret aspect of the Inuzuka that they are loathe to share with outsiders and go to great lengths to deny. Buried within each of their hearts is the potential to become a maneater; and this thick hunger stems from their beastial heritage giving them the innate ability to cannibalize others to heal their injuries and grow in strength. To the Inuzuka, as much as any predator, the battlefield is a feast to be enjoyed.

Rank 1/2/3: The user gains 5%10%/15% of damage dealt by their attacks as Temporary HP.

Costs: 1.25ap, 270 CP and 135 CP/rnd.

Notes:

  • If used on an attack that can hit multiple targets, you take the highest damage dealt and convert a portion of it to Temporary HP.

Beastmaster
jE2nWzW.png

The Inuzuka view their partners not as pets, but as peer's; perhaps even family members or close as siblings. Few possess such strong attachment and loyalty that can compare to the bond of an Inuzuka and their counterpart, and fewer still can stand to this perfect combination in battle. The title of "Beastmaster" is granted only to those who have become two halves of a greater whole, inseparable from each other; and all the stronger for it.

Pack Tactics - Passive
Many creatures in the natural world form lasting partnerships with other creatures that are mutually beneficial to both parties. In some cases this takes the form of parasitism or symbiosis but in most cases it takes the form of like-creatures banding together into packs or herds. The Inuzuka is no different, and the bond between them and their companions is unbreakable.

Rank 1/2/3: Rank 1 allows the Animal Companion to count as an Ally for the Teamwork ability, and vice-versa. Rank 2 allows the user and their Animal Companion to receive the maximum bonus from the Teamwork ability. Rank 3 The user and Animal Companion are treated as having the Teamwork ability without it taking up an ability slot.

---

Mutual Link - Passive
Covering for each other's blind spot, the Inuzuka and their bonded companion would sacrifice themselves for the purpose of preserving their partner.

Rank 1: Whenever the user or their Animal Companion would take damage that would exceed 20% of their maximum HP, they may re-direct the attack to their counterpart. This is an automatic hit, but the new target gains +5%/+10%/+15% Damage Reduction against the attack and any Secondary Effects chances are reduced by -5%/-10%/-15%.

Notes:
  • May only be used reflexively.
  • Requires a Conditional Slot use from either the Animal Companion or the User, whichever is redirecting the attack.

---

Beast-Human Clone - Buffing Taijutsu
A technique which is not actually a "Clone" type of jutsu, but named as such. This technique essentially establishes an equilibrium between Inuzuka and their Animal sibling; the Inuzuka becoming more feral and beastlike, and their companion more humane. As a result, the two become perfect copies of each other which meet somewhere in the middle, virtually impossible to tell apart.

Rank 1/2/3: Transforms the user and their Animal Companion into copies of each other, giving +1/+1/+2 Dodge to each. The user and the Animal Companion gain each other’s additional taijutsu subtype granted from Feral Shift; this weapon is treated as both subtypes equally.

Cost: 2.25 AP; 735 CP, 367.5 cp/rnd.

Notes:
  • May be maintained for up to 30 seconds.
  • This does not count as a Clone Technique.
  • Upon use and If the user and their Animal Companion both start a round with this skill active, others in battle lose awareness as to which is which.

---

Fang-Over-Fang - Variable Taijutsu
An Inuzuka and their canine companion are in sync and able to understand eachother perfectly even in the heat of battle; or perhaps especially in the heat of battle. The movements between the two flow perfectly, each covering for the other; and exploited weakpoints created by the other.

Rank 1: May target up to 3 targets at -2/-1/-0 acc for 1210/1515/1820 Physical Damage with a +21% chance to cause Bleed.

Special Action - Tunnelling Fang: The user may target a single target for +15% base damage.

Special Action - Endless Fang: The user and animal companion may combo this technique with itself, if both the user and the Animal companion perform Endless Fang. This counts as one use of a Combo for the round.

Notes:
  • May only be used while Beast-Human Clone is active.
  • This Taijutsu subtypes match the weapon used for it. (Both Subtypes from Beast-Human Clone).
  • Endless Fang requires 10 second cooldown after use.
  • Endless Fang cannot be used with Alpha Status.
  • Endless Fang requires use of a Animal Companion's Conditional slot.
  • Both special actions may be used at the same time.

---

Two-Headed Wolf - Buffing Taijutsu
The ultimate technique of a Inuzuka Beast Master, physically fusing with their animal companion to make one creature greater than the sum of its parts.

Rank 1/2/3: The user and animal companion transform into one entity, gaining the Gigantic Ability. Any damage taken is split evenly between the user’s and the animal companion’s HP. At Rank 2, while transformed the User and Animal companion both use the user’s Acc. At Rank 3, while using Two-Headed Wolf, the user and animal companion count as having the Alpha Status Technique active, and may still combo attacks.

Cost: 2.75 Ap, 2475 CP 1240 CP/rnd.

Notes:
  • This is a Chakra Armour Technique
  • This may be maintained for up to 30 seconds.

Lone Wolf
nlqhuLM.png

All Inuzuka respect and emulate the beasts they live with, but not all claim the title of "Beastmaster". The "Lone Wolf" forms their bond with no individual companion, and instead channels the strength of members of the pack that have long since passed on. They embrace their inner beast, to the point where the lines differentiating them are blurred.
924 PL - Zodiac Blessing (All Ranks), Unnatural Motion (Rank 1)
1008 PL - Beast's Embrace (Rank 1)
1092 PL - Unnatural Motion (Rank 2)
1176 PL - Beast's Embrace (Rank 2)
1260 PL - Ravager (Rank 1)
1344 PL - Unnatural Motion (Rank 3)
1428 PL - Ravager (Rank 2),
1512 PL - Faux Senjutsu (Rank 1)
1596 PL - Beast's Embrace (Rank 3)
1680 PL - Ravager (Rank 3), Faux Senjutsu (Rank 2)
1764 PL - Faux Senjutsu (Rank 3)

---

Zodiac Blessing - Passive
The Lone Wolf wields their body as a conduit for the departed souls of their pack. The end result is that they take on even further traits of their Spirit Animal, manifesting as an even deeper connection to their heritage.

All Ranks: The user's Animal Companion skill transforms to Zodiac Blessing and has its effects replaced with the following;
Zodiac Blessing - Passive
The blood flowing though the veins of the Inuzuka is both ancient and wild, and for that reason often hearkens to a much more savage era. Their very nature is said to push the boundaries between human and beast.

Rank 1/2/3: The user gains 1/1/2 Zodiac Blessing effects of their choice. At rank 3, while the user is maintaining Alpha Status, they may choose to also count as the Animal Companion. (Techniques comboed this way cannot be buffed unless otherwise stated)

---

Beast's Embrace - Passive
The Inuzuka may lack the bond with their particular spirit animal, but their blessing is none the weaker; any power they would have gained in numbers is instead concentrated solely onto themselves.

Rank 1/2/3: When fighting alone the user gains +1/+1/+2 Accuracy/DC and deals an additional +5%/+10%/10% damage. These bonuses are reduced by -1/-5% for each ally that the user has present in the battle.

Notes:
  • The user’s Summons and Creations both count as allies that reduce the user’s bonuses gained from Beast’s Embrace

---

Unnatural Motion - Variable Taijutsu
Channeling the power of their clan grants the Inuzuka inhumane capabilities, taking on the movement traits of their departed companions. The Lone Wolf learns to use this in such a way to catch their opponents off guard, as just when you think they may leave an opening in their actions, they continue.

Rank 1: The user attacks one target at +0/+1/+2 Accuracy dealing 1350/1690/2025 Physical Damage. If the attack is a full hit, the attack gains any effects of the user's last successful non-Genjutsu attack (such as an accuracy debuff, poison, bleed, bind), but not the damage.

Cost: 2.25 AP. 735 CP

Notes:
  • This Taijutsu subtype matches the weapon used for it.
  • All normal rules and caps remain in effect, and this does not allow the stacking of normally unstackable effects.
---

Ravager - Variable Taijutsu
The aspect of beasts is a world where the only law is survival of the fittest. The lone wolf, proficient in hunting alone, knows how to ambush even large groups and pull their intended prey aside, away from the help of its allies.

Rank 1: The user makes an attack against 1 target at -2/-1/-1 acc dealing 1650/2060/2475 Physical Damage and automatically makes a stealth check against everyone other than the target. For the next 10 seconds if the user only attacks this target, they do not break the Stealth granted by this technique.

Cost: 2.25 AP. 900 CP

Notes::
  • This Taijutsu subtype matches the weapon used for it.
  • Attacking any target other than the original target breaks stealth granted by this technique and is not a sneak attack.
  • The user will not go into Stealth unless they successfully hit the target.
  • Blindshots are made as normal against the user.
  • This technique cannot be maintained by any means.
  • This technique cannot have its targets increased by any means.
---

Faux Senjutsu - Variable Taijustu
Even though Inuzuka do not always follow the ways of Sage Arts it is not uncommon for the Lone Wolf to channel the power of their fallen clan to emulate the very power that may take Sage's years to understand, let alone Master. Inuzuka who have have walked among the strongest and most powerful examples of beasts may glean secrets which could be described as a form of Sage Arts or at least something which approaches that ability.

Rank 1/2/3: The user may choose to mirror the Senjutsu belonging to one of their Zodiac Blessings as a Taijutsu technique. This action costs +30%/+15%/+0% CP.

Costs: AP and CP equal to the respective Senjutsu.

Notes:
  • This Taijutsu subtype matches the weapon used for it, or a Buffing Taijutsu if no weapon is used..
  • Faux Senjutsu inherits all notes and restrictions of the Senjutsu it is mimicking and it's effects do not stack with those of the respective Senjutsu.

[B]Rank 1/2/3:[/B] Rank 1 allows the [I]Animal Companion[/I] to count as an Ally for the [URL='https://www.ninpocho.com/viewtopic.php?f=213&t=5409'][I]Teamwork[/I] ability[/URL], and vice-versa. Rank 2 allows the user and their [I]Animal Companion[/I] to receive the maximum bonus from the [I]Teamwork[/I] ability. Rank 3 The user and [I]Animal Companion[/I] are treated as having the [I]Teamwork[/I] ability without it taking up an ability slot.

[B][U]Mutual Link - [I]Passive[/I][/U][/B]
Covering for each other's blind spot, the Inuzuka and their bonded companion would sacrifice themselves for the purpose of preserving their partner.

[B]Rank 1:[/B] Whenever the user or their [I]Animal Companion[/I] would take damage that would exceed 20% of their maximum HP, they may re-direct the attack to their counterpart. This is an automatic hit, but the new target gains +5%/+10%/+15% Damage Reduction against the attack and any Secondary Effects chances are reduced by -5%/-10%/-15%.

[I]Notes:[/I]
[list][*]May only be used reflexively. 
[*]Requires a Conditional Slot use from either the [i]Animal Companion[/i] or the User, whichever is redirecting the attack.[/list]

[U][B]Beast-Human Clone - [I]Buffing Taijutsu[/I][/B][/U]
A technique which is not actually a "Clone" type of jutsu, but named as such. This technique essentially establishes an equilibrium between Inuzuka and their Animal sibling; the Inuzuka becoming more feral and beastlike, and their companion more humane. As a result, the two become perfect copies of each other which meet somewhere in the middle, virtually impossible to tell apart.

[B]Rank 1/2/3:[/B] Transforms the user and their [i]Animal Companion[/i] into copies of each other, giving +1/+1/+2 Dodge to each. The user and the [i]Animal Companion[/i] gain each other’s additional taijutsu subtype granted from Feral Shift; this weapon is treated as both subtypes equally.

[B]Cost:[/B] 2.25 AP; 735 CP, 367.5 cp/rnd.

[i]Notes:[/i]
[list][*]May be maintained for up to 30 seconds.
[*]This does not count as a Clone Technique.
[*]Upon use and If the user and their [I]Animal Companion[/I] both start a round with this skill active, others in battle lose awareness as to which is which.[/list]

[U][B]Fang-Over-Fang - [I]Variable Taijutsu[/I][/B][/U]
An Inuzuka and their canine companion are in sync and able to understand eachother perfectly even in the heat of battle; or perhaps [I]especially[/I] in the heat of battle. The movements between the two flow perfectly, each covering for the other; and exploited weakpoints created by the other.

[B]Rank 1:[/B] May target up to 3 targets at -2/-1/-0 acc for 1210/1515/1820 Physical Damage with a +21% chance to cause [i]Bleed[/i].

[I][b]Special Action[/b] - Tunnelling Fang:[/I] The user may target a single target for +15% base damage.

[I][b]Special Action[/b] - Endless Fang:[/I] The user and animal companion may combo this technique with itself, if both the user and the Animal companion perform Endless Fang. This counts as one use of a Combo for the round.

[B]Cost:[/B] 2.25 Ap, 680 CP

[I]Notes:[/I]
[list][*]May only be used while [I]Beast-Human Clone[/I] is active.
[*]This Taijutsu subtypes match the weapon used for it. (Both Subtypes from [I]Beast-Human Clone[/I]).
[*][i]Endless Fang[/i] requires 10 second cooldown after use.
[*][i]Endless Fang[/i] cannot be used with [i]Alpha Status[/i].

[U][B]Two-Headed Wolf - [I]Buffing Taijutsu[/I][/B][/U]

Any damage taken is split evenly between the user’s and the animal companion’s HP. At Rank 2, while transformed the User and Animal companion both use the user’s Acc. At Rank 3, while using Two-Headed Wolf, the user and [i]animal companion[/i] count as having the [i]Alpha Status Technique[/i] active, and may still combo attacks. 

[B]Cost:[/B] 2.75 Ap, 2475 CP 1240 CP/rnd.

[I]Notes:[/I]
[list][*]This is a Chakra Armour Technique
[*]This may be maintained for up to 30 seconds.

[B][U]Lone Wolf[/U][/B]
[IMG]https://i.imgur.com/nlqhuLM.png[/IMG]
[I]All Inuzuka respect and emulate the beasts they live with, but not all claim the title of "Beastmaster". The "Lone Wolf" forms their bond with no individual companion, and instead channels the strength of members of the pack that have long since passed on. They embrace their inner beast, to the point where the lines differentiating them are blurred.[/I]

[B][U]Zodiac Blessing - [I]Passive[/I][/U][/B]
The Lone Wolf wields their body as a conduit for the departed souls of their pack. The end result is that they take on even further traits of their Spirit Animal, manifesting as an even deeper connection to their heritage.

[B]All Ranks:[/B] The user's [I]Animal Companion[/I] skill transforms to [I]Zodiac Blessing[/I] and has its effects replaced with the following;
[quote][U][B]Zodiac Blessing - [I]Passive[/I][/B][/U]
The blood flowing though the veins of the Inuzuka is both ancient and wild, and for that reason often hearkens to a much more savage era. Their very nature is said to push the boundaries between human and beast.

[B]Rank 1/2/3:[/B] The user gains 1/1/2 Zodiac Blessing effects of their choice. At rank 3, while the user is maintaining Alpha Status, they may choose to also count as the Animal Companion. [i](Techniques comboed this way cannot be buffed unless otherwise stated)[/i]

---

[B][U]Beast's Embrace - [I]Passive[/I][/U][/B]
The Inuzuka may lack the bond with their particular spirit animal, but their blessing is none the weaker; any power they would have gained in numbers is instead concentrated solely onto themselves.

[B]Rank 1/2/3:[/B] When fighting alone the user gains +1/+1/+2 Accuracy/DC and deals an additional +5%/+10%/10% damage. These bonuses are reduced by -1/-5% for each ally that the user has present in the battle.

[I]Notes:[/I]
[list][*]The user’s Summons and Creations both count as allies that reduce the user’s bonuses gained from [i]Beast’s Embrace[/i][/list]

---

[U][B]Unnatural Motion - [I]Variable Taijutsu[/I][/B][/U]
Channeling the power of their clan grants the Inuzuka inhumane capabilities, taking on the movement traits of their departed companions. The Lone Wolf learns to use this in such a way to catch their opponents off guard, as just when you think they may leave an opening in their actions, they continue.

[B]Rank 1:[/B] The user attacks one target at +0/+1/+2 Accuracy dealing 1350/1690/2025 Physical Damage. If the attack is a full hit, the attack gains any effects of the user's last successful non-Genjutsu attack [I](such as an accuracy debuff, poison, bleed, bind)[/I], but not the damage.

[B]Cost:[/B] 2.25 AP. 735 CP

[I]Notes:[/I]
[list][*]This Taijutsu subtype matches the weapon used for it. 
[*]All normal rules and caps remain in effect, and this does not allow the stacking of normally unstackable effects.[/list]

[B][U]Ravager - [I]Variable Taijutsu[/I][/U][/B]
The aspect of beasts is a world where the only law is survival of the fittest. The lone wolf, proficient in hunting alone, knows how to ambush even large groups and pull their intended prey aside, away from the help of its allies.

[B]Rank 1:[/B] The user makes an attack against 1 target at -2/-1/-1 acc dealing 1650/2060/2475 Physical Damage and automatically makes a stealth check against everyone other than the target. For the next 10 seconds if the user only attacks this target, they do not break the Stealth granted by this technique. 

[B]Cost:[/B] 2.25 AP. 900 CP

[I]Notes:[/I]:
[list][*]This Taijutsu subtype matches the weapon used for it. 
[*]Attacking any target other than the original target breaks stealth granted by this technique and is not a sneak attack.
[*]The user will not go into [I]Stealth[/I] unless they successfully hit the target.
[*]Blindshots are made as normal against the user.
[*]This technique cannot be maintained by any means.
[*]This technique cannot have its targets increased by any means.[/list]

[U][B]Faux Senjutsu - [I]Variable Taijustu[/I][/B][/U]
Even though Inuzuka do not always follow the ways of Sage Arts it is not uncommon for the Lone Wolf to channel the power of their fallen clan to emulate the very power that may take Sage's years to understand, let alone Master. Inuzuka who have have walked among the strongest and most powerful examples of beasts may glean secrets which could be described as a form of Sage Arts or at least something which approaches that ability.

[B]Rank 1/2/3:[/B] The user may choose to mirror the Senjutsu belonging to one of their Zodiac Blessings as a Taijutsu technique. This action costs +30%/+15%/+0% CP.

[B]Costs:[/B] AP and CP equal to the respective Senjutsu.

[I]Notes:[/I]
[list][*]This Taijutsu subtype matches the weapon used for it, or a Buffing Taijutsu if no weapon is used.. 
[*][I]Faux Senjutsu[/I] inherits all notes and restrictions of the Senjutsu it is mimicking and it's effects do not stack with those of the respective Senjutsu.
