  • Catching Tarantulas

    Debris still rained down from overhead, the result of some wayward Katon thrown by an overzealous Leaf shinobi. Smoldering craters and blown out clearings decorated the battlefield like unpleasant stains on a pristine wedding dress. Now there was a thought that stirred true anger in the heart of the Shichou clan matriarch.

    Unlike most of her flak-jacketed adorned brethren Liru wore the threads of her people- more specifically, the chakra-enhanced battle-ready merchandise the woman spent her lifetime hocking on Amegakure's grunts and soldiers. Never sell a product you don't believe in, someone may as well have said to her once. Liru's own handiwork bristled against her skin as if ready to leap off and start strangling the enemy at any moment. Soon, she thought. Soon.

    Another blast focused the woman's attention onto a distant conflict. Billows of thick black smoke swirled around the choke point where Rain shinobi just moments ago looked to have been threatening a forceful breakthrough. Some unexpected interference blocked their path, it seemed? The rest of her men could finish up on this front. With the elegance of a Shichou model Liru broke forward. It simply wouldn't be profitable to linger in one spot for so long.

    Hidden Leaf vs Hidden Rain: All hell breaks loose!

    Gene stood among the carnage and allowed the true gravity of what would be done today to sink in. For as far as his eyes could see there'd been nothing but clashes between Leaf and Rain Shinobi and as he drank in as much as his eyes could take, a thought sprouted in his head.

    Our war is with those of the Hidden stone...not the people of the Hidden rain but, because of their geographical location they've been pulled into the fire. It is truly unfortunate but there's nothing that I alone can do. Besides, too much blood has been shed already. Almost as if on cue an explosion rocked the background and Gene could have sworn he could hear the sound of body parts being cast this way and that way followed by the inevitable splatter of heavy blood forced out of its container. More death...more pain...more loss.

    Still, he was Shinobi and as such the battlefield was no place to allow his emotions to take hold. "Squads one and two, form a crane formation along the Western sector and force a breakthrough! I'll deal with this..."

    In the next moment the silver-haired Jounin removed the large scroll that had up until that point been resting comfortably near his lower back and placed it quickly on the floor, unraveling it in mid-air to save time. Placing his left hand upon the Fuinjutsu formula he forced his chakra into the seal and activated it, releasing Oath breaker; a great sword both large and strong enough to rival that of Kirigakure's Kubikiribocho. Hoisting the weapon up with the same hand used to activate the seal, Gene prepared himself to do battle with any number of foes. As it stood - he 'd be the block stopping Ame forces from intervening with the order he'd just given as in order to get to the rest of the men they would need to first get back him.

    "Alright you guys...the sleeping Dragon of Konohagakure has arrived and let me tell ya'.." his Auburn hues lit up, "that means this just got a whole lot more dangerous for you lot!" Breaking forward, Gene thrust himself into the fray.

    Ready to take on any and ALL challengers.

      Dozens of voices blared over the communication unit, orders coming from every side and angle as the front grew more chaotic by the second. Liru was no general; her armies consisted more of salesmen and lawyers than hardened warriors. Conflict always made up part of a bigger picture though, and the woman liked to think in broad strokes rather than focus on the gritty details.

      In this instance it became clear immediately a head-on approach would be suicide. Too many unknowns. As she entered the swirling clouds of black smoke her practiced fingers unraveled a small sealing scroll at her hip. Simultaneously her other arm pulled from the scroll an entire ream of cloth, and in one swoop of the Shichou's slender arms, a chakra charged needle tore through the material. Not her best work, of course. That was reserved for paying customers. How lucky for these Leaf nin- they would get a sample of a famous Shichou product for free!

      Staying in the cover provided by the smoldering earth's dust Liru whipped the newly fashioned coat around and sent it spiraling high into the air. Within moments the skies darkened and grew heavy with the smell of rain. Large cracks of lightening dwarfed the explosions and struggles of the surrounding war. First a few drops of moisture fell. Then a few more.

      Then it was as if the gods themselves threw open the heavens to pour the sea upon the earth. A downpour ripped into the muddy ground below. If the smoke was hard to see through, one of Ame no Kuni's infamous typhoons would be that much worse.

      Jutsu: Ubermensch Overcoat

      Takes the form of a heavy jacket, which can extend down to the feet or only up to the lower torso if desired. When activated by opening the coat (either on purpose or by an enemy), an immense storm is blown from underneath, complete with wind, rain, hail, mud, and thunder (the wearer controls what ‘gets out’). If the coat is cast away entirely, the storm will completely escape, encompassing the battlefield in a massive (but still fairly mundane) storm covering a 250 yard in radius after one post. The storm finishes at the end of 3 posts with a mighty blast of rain which floods the battlefield. Afterwards, the weather will be quite pleasant and sunny.
