    Eki Gisou, The Desert Cobra [DONE]

    Post by Eki Gisou on Wed Feb 29, 2012 8:43 pm

    The Desert Cobra


    Male, Twenty-Nine Years Old
    Five Feet, Ten Inches and One Hundred and Seventy-Six Pounds
    Sunagakure, Kaze no Kuni
    Medic Artisan, Taijutsu Master and Weaponry Expert
    "S" Rank, Leader of the Goryuu
    Leader of the Kinfusen Thieves Guild
    {Missing Nin}

    Personality:
    Eki is in favor of law, but throughout the various tiny nomadic societies he's briefly clung to in order to survive the dunes of Sunagakure, he's become impatient with the slow changes made by those in power. He feels he is on the side of the people, a fiercely loyal and competitive shinobi, still young but with a natural leadership mentality that propels him into close-knit relationships with those he's only known shortly. Inexplicably, he is embarrassed easily around the opposite sex and is afraid of speaking in public.

    Eki's primary motivation, from his early days in the academy to his aspirations of life as a hunter-nin of ANBU, was to become Kazekage. The Village Hidden in the Sand is often revealed as something precious to him now, a real home after spending so much time lost and traveling the wastes. Now, he wishes to protect it at all costs, knowing that protecting the position of Kazekage is what allows him to truly be in service to the people who now call him a fellow citizen.

    He enjoys salted pork and fried yams, but hates candy, chocolate, and most sweets. He has searing migraines often, which also lead to him instantly giving off an intimidating feeling. He is frequently accused of staring at people. Of incredible intelligence, he has become an unpredictable tactician and strategist, another natural part of life amongst vagrants. He is intolerant of violence against women or children.

    When bored, he enjoys playing with kunai, shuriken, and other small blades, passing them through his fingers and nonchalantly throwing them at random targets.

    Appearance:

    Eki typically dresses down for subtlety, rather then spending too much time on his appearance. This is not to say he does not care for his looks, he simply keeps a well groomed simple appearance at all times. His typical wardrobe consists mainly of various short kimonos and other martial arts uniforms. While on missions he will often choose a color more appropriate for stealth, dim blacks, blues and greens being his favorite and tend to match his eyes and hair, which too are dark brown and black respectively. He can often be seen with his pet snake, Shinju; an albino Philippine Cobra that's now nearly thirteen feet long and still growing, exceeding her species max length by being fed a diet of. Even with his pet, Eki tends to present himself rather formally at all times, standing in a typical back straight, chin up, fists pressed behind back position. The tattoos that cover his face and body are a late homage to his original family, the Hotaru tribe.

    History:

    ~The Life of a Nomad Arc (Age 0-7):
    Mayu was born unto Akemi and Kazuo of the Hotaru Tribe, a nomadic society which traveled throughout Kaze no Kuni, Tsuchi no Kuni and Hi no Kuni. The tribe itself was independent of the shinobi world, and as such, each of it's members had their own duties. Childhood within the tribe was thus non-existant, from a young age, even Mayu had work to do. At only three years old, Mayu began apprenticing under the tribe's witch doctor; Etsuko. Together the two performed the art of Shinjutsu (Acupuncture) and herbalism to act as the tribe's medics. The tribe in itself was often attacked, and while they did maintain their own protective forces within the tribe, injuries came often, giving the young Shinjutsu apprentice all too much time to practice. The knowledge Mayu obtained as an infant and his earliest years of development would be later applied to combat, his Shinjutsu becoming Dian Xue Shu, and his herbalism becoming poison making. However, at the time, Mayu lived his life in naive seclusion from the world. He knew not what a ninja was. All he knew of beyond the tribe was the highwaymen that continually assaulted them, to which Mayu was explained, those with blackened hearts. It was this seclusion and fear mongering that kept Mayu from wanting to venture, as it did most tribe members. The only ones ever allowed to leave the tribe for extended periods of time were the hunters and the elders. The task of a hunter was clear, the elders however had peculiar work. They would continuously leave with products of the tribe's labors, returning with seemingly magical items, pattern filled flat leaves and oddly shaped shiny and pointy stones. None of what they returned felt as if it came from the earth around the tribe. This did indeed pique Mayu's curiousity, but he lacked the courage to venture out and face those with the blackened hearts. After all, he was only five years old when he began noticing what the elders did with their time.

    Around the age of seven, Mayu began to take on that same obnoxious and confident attitude most children do. He wanted to see where the Elder's attained the magic objects. For the past two years, he had been subtly memorizing the route that the tribe traveled year after year, making note of not only when the elder's left, but when the number of patients to tend to increased as well. Ever anxious, Mayu spent many a distracted night in Etsuko's tent, his eyes gazing out over the sands or deep into the forest. He once asked Etsuko, as someone he trusted, what was truly out there. The only answer he ever attained though were "Nothing, " or "Hush child!". One fateful night however, Etsuko had run out of Faro needles. While he never asked Mayu to go collect some, as they only ever collected herbs when they passed by them during the tribe's travels, Mayu found this as a perfect opportunity and alibi to leave the village. As fate would have it, the Elders were leaving the village at the same moment. Using what little knowledge Mayu had of the outside world, he decided to follow them, understanding that if he were to leave the tribe's caravan, it was best to be where the Elder's were. After hours of patient stalking, a giant mound of sand came into view. The structure amazed Mayu, as it was beyond regular sand dunes. It's edges were squared, it's incline sharp. As they neared it, Mayu took better cover and watched as the elders spoke to men that Mayu had been told were black of heart, and not to be trusted. They spoke in strange tongues, and while it may have been incoherent to the young tribesman, Mayu still recognised it as the same tongue the black of heart used. The elder's then passed into the sand dune, as it was hollow from Mayu's deduction, and had no... top. Hours passed before they returned, and as they did Mayu moved on down the road ahead of them, hoping not only to return before his absence was noted, but not risk the elder's spotting him in passing.

    It seemed his venture had changed his world forever though. Standing on top of a sand dune, Mayu stood, shocked, mentally destroyed as he looked down upon his tribe's now burning camp. The flames stretched into the sky as screams filled the night air, flickering shadows cast down against the sand. The elder's soon caught up with the boy. "Mayu what are yo-... Get down boy!" Eyes staring blankly at the horrific scene, Mayu was snatched up and thrown backwards, down the other side of the dune where he was now hidden. The elder standing over top of him assured him not to move, and that he would be back.

    It was the last time Mayu saw anyone from his tribe.

    Mayu was found three days later by a Sunagakure scout of the name Kotomi Gisou. Taking the boy back to the village, Kotomi adopted Mayu some point after his recovery. The scout then began teaching Mayu the universal language used in the Shinobi world, and while difficult at first, Mayu's quick mind grasped the subject easily after only a few short and intense lessons. As he became more fluent, Mayu began to ask questions about who he was. It seemed the post-traumatic stress had erased his memory, leaving him with no identity. Kotomi thought it better the boy not know where he was from, or what had happened to his people, and so, thinking quickly he replied.

    "You are my son. You are Eki Gisou."

    ~Lost but not alone Arc (Age 7-13)
    Now a member of Sunagakure, Eki began his study as an academy student, following in the footsteps of who he thought to be his father. While he was exceptionally talented, his remedial english held him back in class. Though he knew the techniques in practice, the thoery work behind them he was required to do, written assignments were impossible. Due to this, Eki would spend a few extra years in the academy, whereas had he been born into Sunagakure, he would have graduated from the age at the age of eight. Having already mastered the academy techniques, Eki spent his time learning english and studying martial arts with his adoptive father, preparing for the life of a genin. On his ninth birthday, two years after Kotomi had found Eki, the young nin was given the greatest gift he could have hoped for; Shinju. Shinju was an albino philippine cobra, still in it's neonate (very young, baby) growth tile. Eki Gisou took a firm liking to the young snake and soon it became his best friend. Over the following years, he was bit countless time and time again by the extremely venomous creature. Luckily, as the snake was still young, the venom did little more then cause a raging fever. Soon Eki became nearly immune to the venom... ironically, just as Shinju began to bond with him and stop biting.

    Happy as can be, Eki buckled down his following year, and became near perfectly fluent in English. This feat finally allowed him to graduate at the age of ten. Having then studied martial arts as a passionate hobby, Eki spent merely a year as a genin before moving on to Chuunin, where Kotomi found it fitting Eki seek out an actual Sensei. After a few months of looking for someone appropriate, Eki was taken under the wings of Kangohei Senzoku to be taught the ways of the Combat Medic. The field itself had always interested Eki for some reason, and he found he excelled in it quickly. Learning abilities such as the chakra scalpel and and bone healing techniques, Eki soon became a force to be reckoned with at close range. Even Shinju, now nearly three feet long would accompany him into battle, coiling around Eki and hiding beneath his clothes, to strike deadly poison into targets. His martial arts and medic training continued on for the next three years without much rest. Eki Gisou seemed to love practice more then missions. The boy had a devotion to perfection, any time a new technique or skill was learned, it would be practiced over ceremoniously, then used in conjunction with anything else he may have known. At the age of thirteen, Eki Gisou had little battle experience, but enough knowledge and practice to make him a skilled and deadly combatant.

    ~The Truth Revealed Arc (Age 13-17)
    At the age of thirteen, Eki Gisou felt he had had enough practice, and as such he would spend the next few years completing mission after mission. Shinju, the now six foot long cobra was always at his side, and together there was little they couldn't overcome. At one point, they were even pitted against one of Konoha's legendary Hyuuga clan members. Being a close range specialist, it turned out Eki's snake and praying mantis style's easily rivaled the speed and precision on the Hyuuga Jyuuken. While they didn't win the battle, and had to retreat hastily, Eki felt quite proud that his taijutsu skill was on par with a taijutsu master. It was shortly after his fifteenth birthday though that Eki Gisou truly began to blossom. Kotomi had decided to tell the boy the truth, and in doing so, revealed the ruins of the Hotaru camp. The effect was positively devastating on Eki. Memories came flooding back, coupled with grief and sorrow. It was hard gaining and losing a past all within an instant, gaining and losing where you had belonged to. Eki fell into depression.

    Many dreary months passed, with Kotomi at his wit's end. Eki had indeed become the man's child, but Kotomi had no clue on how to help his son in this trying time. As it turns out, Kotomi would not be the one to help him. Going through old Hotaru relics with nostalgia on the mind, Eki came across a scroll. He instantly recognized the inscribed technique as the trance induction ritual the tribe had performed incessantly. While he was always too young to perform it himself when he was with the tribe, it was impossible not to remember his father and mother, and not to mention Etsuko performing the ritual nearly every morning. Debating the results and consequences for a moment, Eki's curiosity got the best of him ultimately, and he began to set up the ritual. Hours of meditation later, Eki still had no result, when finally, just as he was about to give in to his sorrow once again, he felt... nothing.

    Literally nothing, as if his body no longer existed. Opening his eyes slowly, blinding light immediately welcomed his vision, but it didn't blind him, nor make him squint, it was simply there. Looking down at his body, he could see through it. He knew he could at least, after all, there was no longer his room around him, there was nothing. Slowly, Shinju crept from under Eki's robes. She too had become whispy, a simple soul. It was then that he became aware of a presence, a powerful explosive presence, very near to him. "Worry not little one, I know him well." Shinju spoke to him. Under normal circumstances, panic would have set in in this case. However in this world, it seemed perfectly natural, the words didn't even distract Eki from the true wonder. There, before him, above him, around him, was a serpent more powerful then he had ever seen. It was large, and then it wasn't, it was fierce then gentle, it encompassed so many raw elements at once, that it simply was. Rearing up it's large head, the large snake began to speak, it's mouth not so much as quivering as it did so.

    "Eki..." It's voice seemed to boom, but it caused no harm to the ears. "I, am Naga... Your spirit guide." Eki took a moment to swallow as the spirit paused, or rather, not swallow. "We had thought we lost you, little one. I am glad to see you again." Shinju at this point, had coiled around Eki in a gentle embrace, just as Naga lowered it's massive face down to Eki's. "You are the last Eki, don't let us be lost." The proximity was not intended to be intimidating at all, in fact, it felt compassionate. Feelings of love and joy arose within Eki, tears began to... not pour down his cheeks. "Remember the ways of the Hotaru, and we will always be here for you." With that, the trance ended, leaving Eki sitting on the floor of his room, Shinju nestled up against his neck. Taking a look down at her, Eki burst into tears, simply from the weight of the information, He now knew what he needed to do.

    From then on, Eki began his training as a Hotaru member, all the while remembering the skills he had already learned. He drew upon his renewed knowledge of herbalism and Shinjutsu, applying them in new ways for strength. Throughout the next two years, Eki further developed his skills, mastering the art of Dian Xue Shu and applying it to Kung Fu, all the while with Shinju and Naga there to guide him. At the age of seventeen, he was then accepted as a Jounin, having honed himself into becoming a masterful assassin, much like the silent snake. His transfer to ANBU came shortly afterwards.

    ~The Desert Cobra (Age 17-27)
    As an ANBU member, Eki Gisou and Shinju quickly made a name for themselves as the top assassin sand had to offer. With an unfathomable amount of knowledge concerning the human body and herbs, Eki was not an ANBU member you wanted coming after you. With his snake like affiliations, he soon became known as the Desert Cobra, a title that struck fear when whispered amongst crooks and villains. Not only was Eki a powerful foe before he joined ANBU, he now had a completely new set of techniques at his fingertips, all of which were practiced and perfected just as his others had been. Eki continued to serve as an ANBU assassin for solo missions, and a tactical support unit for team missions, his knowledge of medicine and herbs proving advantageous. At the ripe age of twenty-one, Eki Gisou was promoted to ANBU Specialist, at which point he was not only given the opportunity to lead his own team (which he declined given he was truly a solo artist) but continued on to teach new ANBU recruits about the arts of Assassination. Kotomi, Naga and Shinju could not have been prouder. This specific role has now been Eki's job for the past six years. That and the odd difficult assassination. Completely satisfied with his life, Eki didn't see how things could get better, until The Kazekage sent for him once more.

    The Goryuu was being reassembled. As an experienced taijutsu master, medic and the village's top assassin, Eki Gisou was placed on the team. Years then passed with Goryuu completing plenty of high ranking successful missions. Eventually, as team members changed, Eki was placed as it's leader. By then the infamous name of the Goryuu had spread far and wide, and would soon prove to crumble under it's own weight. For every nin the elite team hunted, another dozen nin began to hunt them. Soon, it was a danger to even utter the name and eventually, Eki was all that was left. As the then Kazekage relinquished his position, Eki was sent on one final mission. It seemed he was being set up however, the Village of the Hidden Sand needed the last of the Goryuu to disappear. Ambushed and vastly outnumbered, Eki and Shinju barely escaped with their skin, and have been since wandering as labeled criminals.

    Recently, Eki has assembled and lead his own thieves guild. For hire mercenaries, if something needs to be done quietly, and without drawing attention, they're the ones to ask, if you can find them.

    The Hotaru Tribe


    The Hotaru tribe was a shamanistic nomadic group that traveled between the lands of Fire, Sand and Stone roughly twenty years ago. While there are still tribes that have similar attributes, the Hotaru Tribe has now all but disappeared from the world. Whether the actual tribe continues to exist or not is irrelevant however, as it's religious and social practices, while in vastly diminished numbers, has been carried on by any of it's remaining descendants. This lineage is short however, and the amount of people with any knowledge of the Hotaru clan grows smaller every day.

    Shamanism and the Animal Spirit

    The Hotaru tribe was dedicatedly shamanastic, using a plethora of rituals and meditation to evoke contact with their own Animal Spirit. The discovery and contact of one's animal spirit was seen as a rite of passage for the young men and women of the tribe. These animal spirits in question dictate the attributes of the incarnate person they inhabit, whether that person knows of their animal spirit or not. They also tend to affect the human realm more then one would think. For example, a ravenous wolf may attempt to provokingly attack someone with a rabbit animal spirit, but may actually calm down or show affection towards someone with a spirit of kin, such as a wolf or even a dog spirit.

    Eki's Animal Spirit

    As a practicing member of the Hotaru Tribe, Eki's animal spirit is that of the snake. Even more specifically, that of the cobra, which in turn greatly explains his connection to his pet Shinju. The snake spirit encompasses dedication and perfection. It emphasizes knowledge and intelligence, as well as patience. It's main symbolic attribute deals with primordial life force and preservation. The cobra spirit adds honor to these attributes but has pride as a sinful weakness.

    Limit: Must know of and be able to contact animal spirit. Animal spirit must be a cobra.




    Shinju


    The Philippine cobra is a stocky snake of medium length that has long cervical ribs capable of expanding, so that when threatened a hood can be formed. The average length of this species is 1.0 metre (3.3 ft), making Shinju an extremely large specimen (owed to a high protein diet involving boiled egg whites, ground salmon and soybean root provided by Eki her entire life).The head is elliptical, depressed, slightly distinct from neck with a short, rounded snout and large nostrils. The eyes are moderate in size with dark brown and round pupils, typical of other cobra species and similar to other elapids in general. It has a fairly stocky build for an elapid and adult snakes are uniformly light to medium brown, while the juveniles tend to be a darker brown in color.

    Philippine cobras, like other snakes, receive chemical information via their forked tongues, which pick up scent particles and transfer them to a special sensory receptor located in the roof of its mouth. When the scent of a meal is detected, the snake flicks its tongue to gauge the prey's location; it also uses its keen eyesight (philippine cobras are able to detect moving prey almost 100 m [300 feet] away), intelligence and sensitivity to earth-borne vibration to track its prey. Following envenomation, the philippine cobra will begin to swallow its struggling prey while its toxins begin the digestion of its victim. Philippine cobras, like all snakes, have flexible jaws. The jaw bones are connected by pliable ligaments, enabling the lower jaw bones to move independently Like all snakes, the philippine cobra swallows its prey whole. The expansion of the jaw enables the snake to swallow prey much larger than its head.

    The venom of the Philippine cobra is a potent postsynaptic neurotoxin which affects respiratory function and can cause neurotoxicity and respiratory paralysis, as the neurotoxins interrupt the transmission of nerve signals by binding to the neuro-muscular junctions near the muscles. Research done on the venom of this species has shown that its venom is purely a neurotoxin, with no apparent necrotizing components and no cardiotoxins. They are capable of accurately spitting their venom at a target that is up to 3 metres (9.8 ft) away from where they are. The symptoms of a bite might include headache, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhea, dizziness, and difficulty breathing. Bites by the Philippine cobra produce prominent neurotoxicity with minimal to no local signs.

    Eki obtained Shinju as a gift for his ninth birthday. While he didn't know it at the time, his animal spirit allowed the two to instantly bond, and they've been best friends ever since. Unlike common perception, Shinju is in fact female. Also, while Eki is nine years her elder, Shinju still refers to him as little one, showing that the maturity rate of snakes is much quicker then that of humans. Make no mistake, Shinju is a pet, and cannot speak. She does however accompany Eki during his trances, and the two are capable of communicating freely in the spirit world, something they now seem to be able to do in the human realm, an art of simply knowing someone. Eki often carries a small basket attached to his waist, much like the ones snake charmers use, Shinju usually chooses to relax in here when not in combat.

    Spoiler:
    Soutei Hebi Kawarimi (Binding Snake Replacement)
    Rank: D
    Skill: Ninjutsu
    Effect: Eki replaces Shinju with a length of knotted rope in a quick switch, effectively tying up the target, and removing Shinju from harm's way.
    Special: --
    Drawback: --
    Description: Carrying a length of rope with him that mirrors Shinju's length, Eki will use this technique much like any other Kawarimi, only in this situation, waiting until Shinju has grasped the target with her Authority Wrap ability. In a puff of smoke, Shinju will then be switched for the rope, effectively tying up the target instantly.
    Limit: Shinju must have successfully grasped the target with Authority Wrap.

    Dian Xue Shu


    Dian Xue Shu is renowned for not employing brute strength or force against force. A practitioner will prefer to attack the soft targets (pressure points) rather than using brute force to stop an opponent. When the Snow Country invaded Sand over 200 Years ago, the monks developed Dian Xue Shu to kill their enemy. Initially, Dian Xue Shu, Butterfly swords and dart knives were employed to dispose of their enemy, quickly and efficiently.

    One of the most important fundamental principles of Dian Xue Shu is to guard the Center Line. Centre Line theory is one of our major principles. From illustrations, one can observe the pressure points lying along the Center Line. There are various susceptible pressure points in the arms, legs and back of torso and head that are also employed in Dian Xue Shu self protection. It is not only used to gain the straight-line attack and the shortest distance of travel, but also employed to protect our major striking targets along the Centre Line. In addition, attacking along the Centre Line will automatically direct your strikes to your opponent's pressure points.

    As one becomes learned with Dian Xue Shu knowledge, he or she must also develop a thorough knowledge of revival techniques and antidotes. If a person has studied acupuncture or acupressure, he or she will have comprehensive knowledge on pressure point locations. Understanding the 5 phases of nature, cosmology, (your relationship with the 5 seasons and the characteristics of each season), and Internal Organ relationship with the 24 hour cycle, will be of major significance in understanding Diam Xue Shu striking.

    As much of the original theory behind kyushojutsu lies in the Traditional Sand Medicine (TSM) paradigm, many opponents in the West use the international acupoint code as nomenclature.

    In Dian Xue Shu paradigm makes use of the principles of acupuncture (Chakra flow, balance and interrelationships) to describe its methods and effects. Perhaps a short description of the meridians may be in order here. Centuries ago in Mist, doctors discovered "passageways" of energy flow, which are called meridians. There are nine major bilateral meridians ((12 in reality, but I could only find infor for 9)), for various internal organs. They are Lung, Large Intestine, Stomach, Spleen, Heart, Small Intestine, Bladder, Kidneys, and the Pericardium.

    In addition, there are other important meridians not associated with organs (often called Extra Meridians, or Extraordinary Vessels), two of which run vertically along the frontal and posterior centerline, the Conception Vessel (or meridian) and the Governing Vessel (or meridian), respectively. Along these meridians are numerous points or "holes" through which energy can be transferred, or the flow of energy can be modified, through needles, fingertips, or heat in medical application, or though trauma in defensive application. These meridians can be broken down into either yin (negative) or yang (positive). For health to be maintained, yin energy and yang energy must be balanced within the body (Sato, 1996). The medical arts such as acupuncture, shiatsu, and kikoo (Chakra gong in Chinese) seek to restore this balance. In contrast, kyushojutsu, in simple terms, can be viewed as attacking this balance, or the flow of energy, within the body to cause bodily damage to the opponent. One method of using vital point or acu-point strikes employs The Five Element Theory. Some schools of Dian Xue Shu categorize the body's organ meridians into five separate but interrelated elements, namely Fire, Water, Earth, Metal and Wood. This is known as the Five Element Theory (FET) which is used to understand how energies related to these elements, which are associated with organs, interrelate, balance, nurture or regulate each other.

    Dian Xue Shu is a traditional martial art technique That originated in Sand, where specific pressure points on the body are used for self-defense purposes and for healing.

    When these points are struck in combat, the body becomes injured, causing blockages in the flow of Chakra. The victim's vital energy system is thrown into chaos, resulting in serious illness or even death. On the other hand, when some of the Dian Xue Shu pressure points are used for healing, they vigorously contribute to better health, well-being and longevity.

    You may have heard that pressure points can be used to kill and maim. There are also points that are used to subdue an opponent, cause temporary paralysis or knock them out.

    "Dian Xue Shu" is the ancient Chinese art of the death touch. Masters of Dian Xue Shu are said to possess secret knowledge of how "ch'i" (literally, "breath") flows through the human body. Ch'i flow is said to vary, depending upon the season, time of day, one's state of health and other esoteric factors. A master of Dian Xue Shu uses his knowledge of these factors to pinpoint the vulnerable locations on his opponent's body. By accurately striking those locations, even with a mere finger thrust or touch, the master can disrupt the body's ch'i flow, causing the victim to suffer intense pain or even death.

    Legends say that the greatest masters can "delay" Dian Xue Shu damage, so that they touch a victim and he does not suffer any injury for minutes, hours, days or even months. Sometimes the master delays the damage based on how many steps the victim takes after being struck -- he does not suffer damage until he has taken ten, twenty, One thousand or however many steps.

    Some Dian Xue Shu strikes can be used to paralyze the limbs, afflict the victim with various diseases or, so the legends say, kill with a single soft blow.

    There are nine channels, four main vessels, two heal vessels, and two connecting vessels in the human body. All points of the human body are situated along those channels. More over there are especially important points. Points can be "big," "small," "living," and "dead." Total number of "big" points is a hundred and eight, including seventy two points which cause if affected numbing of extremities, thirty six "points of death," two hundred seventy one "Small" points, seventy two causing faint, loss of consciousness. There are points, which cause, if being acted on, numbness or atrophy, which is temporary loss of physical strength, althoughnot fatal these points lead to temporary loss of an enemy's ability to resist.

    Description: In the pectoralis major and minor muscles, in its deep position, in the internal and external intercostal muscles. The Lung Points all do great Damage. LU 1: Zhong Fu (Central Residence) only needs to be struck lightly to cause great energy drainage and thus great local pain which will slowly spread over the whole chest area due to this points connection with another point called SP 21: Dabao (Big Wrapping) located within the Spleen Meridian. A strike here will hinder the progress of Gu Qi, in which is made from food and liquids. Apart from the immediate effect of the extreme pain in the whole chest area, the long term effect will be that the Gu Qi will not be produced and although an opponent who was struck may be taking in food, the Qi from the food given is going nowhere and so the health as well as one's lifestyle will slowly diminish.
    Medical Purposes: Useful for all Lung issues, especially of excess type - cough, wheezing, asthma. Helps with Lung disharmonies involving Phlegm/Heat excess arising from the middle warmer - vomiting, and difficult ingestion.

Great internal damage can be done with little external appearance. This will cause a knock out or even death through Qi drainage. When the point is struck from the top above the Clavicle, the collarbone will be broken along the Qi drainage and even more pain is generated. However because the collarbone is able to take some of the pressure from the strike, even though it breaks, the likelihood of death is lessened. The downward strike will stop a confrontation really fast however.
    Medical Purposes: Useful for all Lung issues, especially of excess type - cough, wheezing, asthma and tension in the chest. Helps with Lung disharmonies involving Phlegm/Heat excess arising from the middle warmer - vomiting, and difficult ingestion, however more often as a local shoulder point.

    Drawback: ---
    Description: The point can cause great damage to the whole system. It can cause a knock out when struck with sufficient force. It can be used several times as a set up point, or it can be used by itself as a devastating strike. The whole upper body is put out of balance both physcially and Qi wise. A strong strike can also cause brain damage. Because this point is a powerful point, when struck rather than used for healing, it will take energy away from the lungs. In addition, as the lungs are part of the power system of the body, one will feel an instant loss of strength if this point is struck at all.
    Medical Purposes: He Sea Point - useful for counterflow Qi/diarrhea, hot skin conditions, phlegm-heat excess. Also used for Acute/Chronic or Exterior/Interior Conditions. Used for upper body edema, enuresis. Local point for the eblow-tendonitis, or tennis elbow.

    Effect: The forearm becomes paralyzed and the victim feels winded. Using this before or after another blow refuses to allow the opponent to draw from their lungs to recover.
    Special: ---
    Drawback: ---
    Description: Lower arm paralysis is immediate with a hard strike. The recipient will feel like he has been struck in the lungs. This is a xi-cleft point. A strike here causes the reverse effect of healing using this point. It is an emergency point and can release much needed Qi to the lungs in an emergency such as being struck in the lungs. So this point can be used as an after shot, after striking the attacker in the lung area. The body calls for its reserve of Qi, but it is unavailable because of the second strike to the LU: Kongzui (Opening Maximum or Supreme Hole).

    Special: ---
    Drawback: ---
    Description: Although this strike is only on the wrist, it is quite a nasty one as it creates great pain and Qi drainage. Even heavy finger pressure here as is the case of a lock will cause great pain. The pain is considered so bad that one who is within this technique has to sit down. One is capable of hitting hard enough to cause enough pain through the body it shocks the brain as it makes the person pass out.

HT 5 Tongli (Reaching the Measure) by itself has been known to cause knockout when hit several times, same goes for LU 8: Jingqu (Across the Ditch). LU 8: Jingqu (Across the Ditch) is a metal and jing point. This is the horary point of the channel and as such when struck will cause the Qi to be disrupted in the channel when it is supposed to be active during the twenty four hour cycle. Thus, the lungs will not be at their peak throughout the day. The Qi imbalance will get worse as each day passes until a healing is affected. Sleep will be affected greatly especially between th hours of three am and five am with the need to urinate because the bladder meridian is at the opposite side of the horary cycle and as such will have the least amount of Qi available to it at this time.
    Medical Purposes: As a precaution No Moxa. Not as broad of an effect as LU 7: Lieque (Broken Sequence or Every Deficiency), still useful for expelling wind, tonifying Qi and Yin.

All points will cause death when SI 5: Yanggu (Valley of Yang) is activated first. It is a fire & jing point. A hard strike here however, has the ability to cause what is known as Yang Madness, a buildup of stagnant Yang Qi in the head, which in turn will cause a powerful migraine and blurred vision.

    Drawback: ---
    Description: Again, this is a very dangerous strike point. It will cause considerable pain and Qi drainage and when struck at the same time as LU 5: Chize (Cubit Marsh) will cause death. It is an earth and he point. It can also be used as an excellent controlling point using violent finger pressure which has the ability to immobilise an opponent so much that he will drop to the ground. Other points that work really well with SI 8: Xiaohai (Small Sea) are: Neigwan, SI 16: Tianchuang (Heaven's Window), The mind point, CV 4: Guanyuan (Hinge at the Source or Gate Origin). Continuing headaches will also be caused until an acupuncturist has treated this situation. A neurological strike works wonders with this point.

    Special: ---
    Drawback: ---
    Description: This strike will do great immediate physical damage due to the accumulation of tendons and muscles at this point. The damage is so great that it can cause loss of consciousness from the Qi drainage and pain alone. Extreme scapular damage is done. The deltoid muscle is a thick triangular muscle which cups the shoulder joint. It is attached to the clavicle (collar bone) and scapula (shoulder blade) at its upper end, and to the shaft of the humerus (upper arm bone) at its lower end. The muscle is divided into three portions: an anterior (clavicular) portion, and acrominal (middle) portion, and a posterior portion. The posterior portion is located on the back of the shoulder. Almost any movement of your shoulder and upper arm involves the deltoid muscle. The anterior portion is used to raise the arm from the body and to lower it again. The acrominal portion is a powerful abductor and the posterior portion is used to move the arm backward.

    Skill: TaiJutsu
    Effect: Location: Causes scapular and lung damage as well as strenght loss in the upper body.
    Special: ---
    Drawback: ---
    Description: This point is more dangerous than SI 12: Bingfeng (Holding Wind) in that it will drain Qi rather than add it. A feeling like something is draining from the whole upper body is felt.

    Effect: Hard strikes will cause death, medium strikes wll cause emotional imbalance and heart problems. Laughter often occurs on impact.
    Special: ---
    Drawback: ---
    Description: This is a window of the sky point. It is one of the more deadly Small Intestine points causing instant death when struck hard. Medium strikes will cause emotional imbalance and heart problems. A strange side effect of this strike is that the recipient will laugh when struck. This is because of the imbalance of emotions when the shen is disconnected to the body.
    Medical Purposes: Both SI 16: Tianchuang (Heaven's Window) & SI 17: Tianrong (Heaven's Contents) are Window of the Sky Points and are useful for throat distention, swelling, goiters, lumps in neck a/or throat.

    Special: ---
    Drawback: ---
    Description: Again, this is one of the more deadly points. It is very close to the vagus nerve and will cause loss of consciousness quite easily and it is right over the external carotid artery which will cause a blood KO. It is also a window of the sky point. When this point is struck, the head feels like it will explode especially if the strike is a lock around the neck using the knife edge of the palm. This is a well known neck locking point in the jujitsu area and has been demonstrated a number of times in public. Just a quick blow up under the angle of the jaw and it's a knock out.

    The Stomach Meridian

    Spoiler:
    ~Stomach Points 1-44~+~Stomach Points 1-11~+~Stomach Points 1-18~

    ST 1: Chengqi (Contain Tears)
    Rank: C
    Skill: TaiJutsu
    Effect: Causes nausea and chakra loss witha light blow. Heavier blows can cause loss of consciousness.
    Special: ---
    Drawback: ---
    Description: ST 1: Chengqi (Contain Tears) is one of the more sensitive points and will be easily damaged by even a light blow to the area. Even a light blow is often enough to cause extreme nausea and a drainage of Qi from the upper body. A hard strike here will cause a knock out. This is a point that will badly affect the Yang Ming through its connection to CO 20: Yingxiang (Welcome Fragrance) will in general drain the Yang Qi from the body. The liver is also affected by a strike to ST 1: Chengqi (Contain Tears) as the liver controls the eyes and whatever happens to the eye area also has an effect upon the liver.
    Medical Purposes: Useful to any eye issue, although ST 2: Sibai (Four Whites) is a good alternative and arguably safer to needle.
    Limit: Must know Meridian Location “Stomach Meridian” .

    ST 2: Sibai (Four Whites)
    Rank: C
    Skill: TaiJutsu
    Effect: Causes chakra loss and loss of consciousness.
    Special: ---
    Drawback: ---
    Description: Again, this point is quite sensitive and will cause considerable local pain and Qi drainage resulting in a knock out and severe nervous damage. When struck one feels a moving down sensation into the chest and then into the legs which will become weak as a result of the downward draining Qi.
    Medical Purposes: Useful to any eye problem, good alternative to ST 1: Chengqi (Contain Tears).
    Limit: Must know Meridian Location “Stomach Meridian” .

    ST 3: Juliao (Great Seam)
    Rank: C
    Skill: TaiJutsu
    Effect: Causes disorientation, dizzyness, and nausea.
    Special: ---
    Drawback: ---
    Description: When struck hard enough, this strike will send a shock wave up into the front of the brain causing disorientation. It will also cause great nausea.
    Medical Purposes: Just a simple Local Point.
    Limit: Must know Meridian Location “Stomach Meridian” .

    ST 4: Dicang (Earth Granary)
    Rank: C
    Skill: TaiJutsu
    Effect: Causes loss of consciousness if struck with enough force.
    Special: ---
    Drawback: ---
    Description: Again, this strike will shock the whole system when struck hard enough. It will cause a KO. However, this strike must be quite accurate.
    Medical Purposes: Used for Facial Pain - Bell's Palsy, Paralysis, trigeminal neuralgia.
    Limit: Must know Meridian Location “Stomach Meridian” .

    ST 5: Dayying (Big Welcome, or Big Meeting)
    Rank: C
    Skill: TaiJutsu
    Effect: Causes loss of consciousness.
    Special: ---
    Drawback: ---
    Description: Any strike to this area of the jaw will cause a knock out, especially if the point is associated with the Gall Bladder Meridian. Obvious jaw damage is also apparent. But it is the shock to the brain that jaw strikes cause that is the main area of damage. This is why the jaw is always a common target in the movies etc. ST 5: Dayying (Big Welcome, or Big Meeting) a great KO point. It sends a shock wave of Qi into the brain either causing dizziness in the least or KO in the most or broken jaw etc. The direction must be straight in from the side to have the greatest affect. This point also has a connection to ST 9: Renying (Man's Welcome) via ST 1: Chengqi (Contain Tears) and ST 8: Touwei (Head Support) (Head Safeguard). Meaning "Great Meeting" for that reason. So we can get a knock out from both sides, from the action upon the heart via the carotid sinus at ST 5: Dayying (Big Welcome, or Big Meeting), and from the brain receiving too much yang Qi. This point is called a 'big point' as it has abundant Qi and blood, hence the great amount of Qi going into the brain when struck. It must also be mentioned that the stomach has Vagus nerve endings entering at the base of the stomach. A strike to ST 5: Dayying (Big Welcome, or Big Meeting) will also have an effect upon the Vagus nerve making this point one of the better KO points.
    Medical Purposes: Just a simple Local Point.
    Limit: Must know Meridian Location “Stomach Meridian” .

    ST 6: Jiache (Jaw Vehicle)
    Rank: C
    Skill: TaiJutsu
    Effect: Causes loss of consciousness, severe concussion and memory loss.
    Special: ---
    Drawback: ---
    Description: All strikes to the tip of the jaw are dangerous. Firstly a strike to ST 6: Jiache (Jaw Vehicle) will cause an instant knock out, it is the classic knock out with people like John Wayne to Sean Connery making this strike famous. The reason it works so well is that this point is very close to the mind point which will stop signals getting to the brain from the central nervous system. A strike here will also cause concussion by way of a shock to the brain causing KO, nausea and loss of memory. A concussion is a violent jar or shock to the brain that causes an immediate change in the brain function, and can possibly include loss of consciousness. For a mild concussion, the signs and symptoms include temporary loss of consciousness; memory loss; and emotional instability. For a severe concussion, the signs and symptoms include prolonged unconsciousness; dilated pupils; change in breathing; disturbed vision and equilibrium; and memory loss. The extent of injury can only be determined by a physician. If the concussion is mild, the injured person may be sent home after examination, but only if a responsible person is present to stay with the injured person and watch for serious symptoms. Follow the doctor's instructions carefully if you are the responsible person, as there are several symptoms to watch for and report to the doctor if one or more after effects appear. The first 24 hours after the injury are critical, but serious after effects can appear later. The total extent of the injury may not be apparent for 48-72 hours. Complete recovery is likely with early diagnosis and treatment.
    Medical Purposes: Used as an eliminate wind from the face - TMJ, toothache, Bell's palsy, twitching, facial pain/paralysis.
    Limit: Must know Meridian Location “Stomach Meridian” .

    ST 7: Xiaguan (Lower Hinge)
    Rank: C
    Skill: TaiJutsu
    Effect: Causes chakra loss and loss of consciousness.
    Special: ---
    Drawback: ---
    Description: Again, this point is a Qi drainage point and will cause loss of consciousness when struck with simply a finger. A feeling down the front of the same side of the neck is felt, then a loss of power in the legs also. Ear problems are also apparent with this strike, and can last for years. Medical Purposes - Used for TMJ, facial pain, upper jaw toothache.
    Limit: Must know Meridian Location “Stomach Meridian” .

    ST 8: Touwei (Head Support) (Head Safeguard)
    Rank: C
    Skill: TaiJutsu
    Effect: Causes great pain to the cranium, chakra loss and loss of consciousness.
    Special: ---
    Drawback: ---
    Description: This point will cause concussion with more nausea than any of the other head strikes due to its being a Stomach Meridian point. Great local pain is felt with a Qi drainage, then KO.
    Medical Purposes: Classically mentioned for "splitting headache; headache w/nausea/vomiting; headache w/eye pain (migraine)." Dizziness, and help with Hair loss.
    Limit: Must know Meridian Location “Stomach Meridian” .

    ST 9: Renying (Man's Welcome)
    Rank: C
    Skill: TaiJutsu
    Effect: ST 9: Renying (Man's Welcome) is one of the major Dian Xue Shu points. It is easy to get to, its effect is devastating ranging from knock out for a light blow to death for a heavy blow.
    Special: ---
    Drawback: ---
    Description: ST 9: Renying (Man's Welcome) is situated right over the carotid sinus. The carotid sinus is a baroreceptor, whose job it is to detect an increase in blood pressure. When it detects this increase, it sends s signal via the vagus nerve of which it is a part, to the vasomotor centre of the brain, which initiates a vasodilatation, and slowing of the heart rate to lower the blood pressure to normal.
    ~Vasodilation: A widening or distension of blood vessels, particularly, arterioles, usually caused by nerve impulses ( as in the case of a strike to Renying (Man's Welcome)) or certain drugs that relax smooth muscle in the walls of the blood vessel.
    ~Vasomotor Centre: A collection of cell bodies in the medulla oblongata of the brain that regulates or modulates blood pressure and cardiac function primarily via the autonomic nervous system. The carotid sinus is a pocket in the wall of the carotid artery at its division in the neck.
    ~Carotid Sinus Reflex: The martial artist is concerned with a phenomenon called the carotid sinus reflex, the decrease of the heart rate as a reflex reaction from pressure on or within the carotid artery at the level of its bifurcation. This reflex starts in the sinus of the internal carotid artery.
    ~Carotid Sinus Syndrome: This is a temporary loss of consciousness or a knock out that sometimes accompanies convulsive seizures because of the power of the carotid sinus reflex when pressure builds up in one or both carotid sinuses. (Or from a strike). This syndrome can be caused to activate artificially by striking to the area of the carotid sinus, ST 9: Renying (Man's Welcome). Extensive research on the carotid sinushas shown why a person would black out when even sometimes only stroked in this area. Other people have knocked themselves out when they have turned their head suddenly because of a hypersensitive carotid sinus. In striking to ST 9: Renying (Man's Welcome), we fool the brain into believing that deadly high blood pressure is present, and in many cases, high blood pressure is present when struck in this area because of the carotid artery being pinched.
    Medical Purposes: In ancient times the Stomach Meridian Qi was assessed by palpating the pulse here and at ST 42: Chongyang (Pouring Yang). Window of the Sky Point - restores Qi flow between the body and the head - useful with headache, chest tightness. Regulation of Blood Pressure - lowering high blood pressure. Tong Ren/Tam Healing System: Used to effect the common carotid artery. With acupuncture and tuina we often use CO 18: Futu (Support the Prominence) instead as it is safer, for Tong Ren and light tuina, however, it is fine to use. Falls into the category of Window of the Sky points within the Tam Healing system.
    Limit: Must know Meridian Location “Stomach Meridian” .

    ST 10: Shuitu (Water Prominence)
    Rank: C
    Skill: TaiJutsu
    Effect: Causes quick and effective loss of consciousness.
    Special: ---
    Drawback: ---
    Description: This point had always stood in the shadow of ST 9: Renying (Man's Welcome). It is however, just as dangerous as ST 9: Renying (Man's Welcome) and when struck spot on the point, is considered by many doctors to be even more dangerous. A strike here causes an immediate rush of yang Qi to the head causing loss of consciousness, the face goes red and the tongue turns blue. Combine this strike with Neigwan and you have a most dangerous strike. This strike adds Qi to the head. The recipient will fall down a split second after the strike. There is also an immediate shock to the head area.
    Medical Purposes: A local Point. Tong Ren/Tam Healing System: Used to effect the circulation within the common carotid artery and the vagus nerve. Useful for issues such as high cholesterol, constipation, cancer of the larynx, etc. Falls into the category of Window of the Sky points within the Tam Healing system.
    Limit: Must know Meridian Location “Stomach Meridian” .

    ST 11: Qishe (QI's Residence)
    Rank: C
    Skill: TaiJutsu
    Effect: Briefly stops the heart with a single strike, causing severe chest pain and panic. When used in combination with other strikes, it can do so permanently.
    Special: ---
    Drawback: ---
    Description: ST 11: Qishe (QI's Residence) is called the "heart starter" because it does just that is emergency situations. However, this point will change whatever state the patient is in before striking to this point. So if someone is awake as in an attacker, then this point will stop his heart beating. If his heart has stopped, a hard thumb pressure into the collar bone at this point will sometimes be enough to start the heart again. So a strike downward into ST 11: Qishe (QI's Residence) will stop the heart from beating, so it is not a point to be playing around with. Combine this strike with a clockwise strike to his left pectoral and a counter clockwise strike to his right pectoral at ST 15: Wuyi (Room screen) and ST 16: Yingghuan (Breast's Window) points, and you have a very dangerous heart stopper.
    Medical Purposes: A Local point. Main point to open the circulation of the common carotid artery. Useful for conditions such as acid reflux, arteriosclerosis, hypertension, kidney cancer, bladder cancer, etc.
    Limit: Must know Meridian Location “Stomach Meridian” .

    ST 12: Quepen (Empty Basin)
    Rank: C
    Skill: TaiJutsu
    Effect: Causes immediate and entire loss of the ability to call upon chakra as well as breaks the clavicle bone causing severe pain.
    Special: ---
    Drawback: ---
    Description: This is an interesting point as it is used to take the will to fight away. Anyone who has been struck here will agree about this, you just cannot carry on fighting after this point has been struck as usually, the clavicle which is quite a weak bone, will break causing great local pain and energy drainage. It also has an effect upon the communication between yin and yang in the whole body and drains yang Qi as it is associated with GV 14: Dazhui (Big Vertebra), (meeting place of Yang). It can be used with ST 11: Qishe (QI's Residence) to cause great Qi loss. It can be used in a grappling situation to stop the fight, or in an attacking situation where you have to block and re-attack etc.
    Medical Purposes: Used for shoulder pain especially that radiates to the neck. Neck/throat issues - tightness/pain. Internal branch of the Stomach meridian connects here directly from the Stomach, Spleen & Diaphragm - tonify middle warmer. Used to effect the circulation within the subclavian artery. Useful for bursitis, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, etc.
    Limit: Must know Meridian Location “Stomach Meridian” .

    ST 13: Qihu (Qi's Household)
    Rank: C
    Skill: TaiJutsu
    Effect: Causes absolute loss of balance and great nausea.
    Special: ---
    Drawback: ---
    Description: Whereas ST 12: Quepen (Empty Basin) drains Qi, ST 13: Qihu (Qi's Household) adds Yang Qi to the head causing loss of balance to the falling down point. With most of the Stomach Meridian points, it will also cause great nausea. This is one of those points where the Qi is said to enter the meridian, so a strike here also unbalances the yin and yang energy in the whole body.
    Medical Purposes: Just a simple Local Point
    Limit: Must know Meridian Location “Stomach Meridian” .

    ST 14: Kufang (Storehouse)
    Rank: C

    Effect: Causes destructive nausea, inducing severe vomiting.

    ST 15: Wuyi (Room screen)
    Rank: C
    Skill: TaiJutsu
    Effect: Does absolutely nothing used alone. Stops the heart when used in conjunction with other strikes.
    Special: ---
    Drawback: ---
    Description: Stops the heart when used along with and at the same time struck as ST 16: Yingghuan (Breast's Window) which is just below it, so both points can be struck with the palm.
    Medical Purposes: Just a simple Local Point
    Limit: Must know Meridian Location “Stomach Meridian” .

    ST 17: Ruzhong (Middle of Breast)
    Rank: C
    Skill: TaiJutsu
    Effect: Causes death if struck with keen precision.
    Special: ---
    Drawback: ---
    Description: This point when struck has a devastating effect and will cause death when a medium to hard strike is used. In acupuncture, it is only ever given as a reference and not to be needled. For the strike to be effective it needs to be accurate within a millimeter however. Immediately there is a sensation moving up the left side of the neck (if the left nipple is struck and vice-versa) and over the top of the back of the head to the other side of the forehead, followed by an extreme Qi drainage resulting in knockout and loss of memory. If the strike has been hard enough, it could also result in mental illness which gets worse with age. This is not a nice point, and should never be played around with!
    Medical Purposes: A point that shouldn't be used for medical purposes.
    Limit: Must know Meridian Location “Stomach Meridian” .

    ST 18: Rugen (Breast Root)

    Drawback: ---
    Description: This is a wood and cheng point and a root point of Tai Yi" (the greater yin division of Spleen & Lung). This strike has a great affect upon the muscles and tendons as it is a control point for those. It is also a control point for the divergent meridians. Spleen damage will occur immediately with a great energy drainage. There is a downwards rushing feeling when struck, followed by nausea and loss of power caused by this point's connection with the lungs by being the root point of tai yin. So it drains Qi from the lungs as well as the spleen. Often used to relax problems related to menstruation, this point also controls bleeding (in healing) in the gastrointestinal tract. As a result, a strike here using adverse Qi will cause any bleeding to be worse and to be harder to stop, especially bleeding from for instance a knife strike to the stomach area. So this point can also be used as an excellent set up point to a knife attack! This is also one of those points that will when struck affect the communication between heaven and earth causing great confusion between mind and body. In healing it is also used as one of the major treatments for shock. When used as a dim-mak strike however, the reverse happens with the symptoms of shock becoming apparent easier, even when a light to moderate strike to the head, for instance, has been felt. So, again, this is an excellent set up point or a major strike. SP 1: Yinbai (Hidden White)'s affect upon the mind causes an inability to sleep soundly. In healing, it is used to give a restful sleep. A word of warning! SP 1: Yinbai (Hidden White) should never be used either in a dim-mak way or even for healing in pregnancy as it will have a adverse affect upon the uterus. In healing, it should never be used on a patient who suffers from diabetes as it will have an effect upon the balance of insulin/sugar.

    Zui Quan


    A master of several complex fighting styles, including Dian Xue Shu and Five Animal Kung Fu, during his many years on the run Eki's taijutsu proficiency has deteriorated under the abuse of alcohol. Using fire water to drown his problems, it hasn't been an entirely unfortunate affair, for it's lead to the creation of his very own Drunken Boxing technique. Don't be fooled, unlike the usual swaying, joyfulness, and goofy stylings, the only characteristics that carried over into Eki's style was the swaying. His version of drunken boxing, a mixture of monkey and snake style Kung Fu, Dian Xue Shu, and Kempo. The style is vicious, unforgiving, and aggressive. If anything, one could say that Eki is a very angry drunk.

After that, the user then sends an elbow to the opponent's stomach, usually using the elbow of their dominant hand, causing the opponent to double over breathless. The user moves their shoulders underneath the opponent and lifts them off of the ground, still holding the collar or hanging object, and then sends the opponent falling backward. At the same time, the user is holding the opponent's leg with his other hand, pulling with both hands so that the opponent spins in the air before hitting the ground.

    Special: --
    Drawback: --
    Description: The user must be behind the opponent to perform this maneuver. Once behind the opponent, the user punches the opponent in the lower spine, striking the back where it folds to cause the opponent to lean backward. At the same time, the user has already dropped back to his hands, his legs spread and extending toward the opponent. Gripping the opponent by the throat and head with the calves, the user spins his upper body either right or left, twisting as if attempting to spin on their head. The user twists his legs next before his hands hit the ground, twisting the opponent's head, and lifting them off of the ground to twist in the air (possibly damaging the opponent's neck). However, the user does not let go, instead they slam the opponent down on the ground as gravity pulls their legs down. As the opponent's body strikes the ground, the user finishes with a heel strike to the opponent's face, most likely breaking the jaw, nose, and/or eye socket.
    Limit: Eki must be drunk to perform.

    To the heavy of pocket and curious of mind do the Kinfusen lend their services to, in exchange for little more then cold hard cash. Exceptionally difficult to come across, the Kinfusen are even harder to find when actually looking for them, part of what makes them exceptional in their highly lucrative careers. As leader of the group, Eki is the best of the best.

Skilled people with trained eyes might be able to follow the movements or catch something shifty, but with this technique it is easy to trick normal people and those less focused.

    Medical Ninjutsu


    Even before medical ninjutsu were established as a jutsu, a technique of using chakra to heal wounds was commonly used throughout the shinobi world. Modern medical ninjutsu are based on the same principles. Medical ninjutsu, created to protect peoples’ lives, were ironically improved by the advent of war. The rapid increase of casualties caused a great interest in the development of new medical techniques and the training of medic ninja. At present, medical ninjutsu are acknowledged as being essential in battle. The systemisation of medical specialists and the creation of functional hospitals helps to protect villagers and save lives.

    Medical-nin are ninja who specialize in medical treatment and use medical-oriented jutsu to heal others. Becoming a medic-nin requires an extreme level of intelligence and excellent chakra control, since medic-nin use chakra to heal injuries. Aside from their medical training, their combat training consists mainly of taijutsu skills, with emphasis placed on evading enemy attacks, as the death of the medic-nin could result in the death of the team, though medical techniques can also be used offensively. On dangerous missions, a medic-nin will usually be sent along with the team, to increase the survival rate of that team.

    Techniques:
    Spoiler:
    Gantai no Jutsu (Bandage Technique)
    Rank: D
    Skill: Ninjutsu
    Effect: Creates a bandage out of surrounding materials.
    Special: --
    Drawback: Requires concentration in order to make larger bandages. Requires some sort of material.
    Description: The user focuses chakra into a nearby material, such as sand, grass, or even water, forming it into an adhesive, sterile strip that’s reminiscent of a bandage. Once formed and applied, the makeshift bandage will remain without chakra input.

    Seimei no Jutsu (Clean and Pure Technique)
    Rank: D Rank
    Skill: Medical Ninjutsu
    Effect: Cleans out a wound so that it can be bandaged and fixed properly.
    Special: ---
    Drawback: The technique is difficult to use on large wounds, requiring greater chakra precision to ensure a properly cleaned wound. Is not effective against poisons unless the technique is administered immediately on the area where the poison was entered, and only works on poisons which are placed upon items, and not poisons that are inhaled. Only removes Poisons D Rank or lower.
    Description: As everyone within the medical profession is aware, in order to stimulate proper healing without fear of infection, a wound, before healing, should be properly cleaned. In order to save patients from experiencing a greater amount of pain, a medical genius invented this technique. By channeling chakra through the hands, a clear white light envelops them. Then, channeling this white chakra into the wound, the user removes impurities within the wound, such as dirt and grime. It also works to actively remove bacteria in the area of the wound. Once completed, the wound is clean and ready to heal. This technique, as a side effect, helps reduce the visibility of scarring as a result of injury.

    Rank: C
    Skill: Ninjutsu
    Effect: Thickens the blood of the receiver to compensate for blood loss.

    Rank: C
    Skill: Ninjutsu

    Drawback: The bone will heal in the position it is in, therefore must be properly set in order for it to properly heal.
    Description: The user focuses chakra along their hands, creating a faint green glow along them. They then focus the chakra into the patient’s body, boosting calcium levels and encouraging the repair of bone breaks or fractures. This technique takes four posts to fix a break and six posts to heal a fracture, minus one for every rank above D the user holds.
    Limit: Must be a medic.

    Sen’eitaishu (Hidden Shadow Bandage Hands)
    Rank: C
    Skill: Ninjutsu
    Effect: Wraps bandages around a patient or object.
    Special: --
    Drawback: Must have a bandage source within the sleeve.
    Description: The user thrusts their arm forward, releasing bandages from inside their sleeves towards the patient. These bandages are strong as ninja wire and fly forward at the speed of a kunai, wrapping around the target and immobilizing them. This technique has a range of five meters.
    Limit: Must be a medic.

    Shosen no Jutsu (Healing Hands Technique)
    Rank: B
    Skill: Ninjutsu
    Effect: The user heals injuries that repairs physical damage.
    Special: --
    Drawback: certain injuries may be impossible to cure or may take a long time to cure. The amount of chakra used is proportional to the injury required to be healed.
    Description: The user gathers chakra into their hands, creating a bright green glow around them. The user then forces the healing chakra into the body of the patient, healing physical damage. This technique requires one post to heal a minor injury and three posts to heal a major injury. .

    Special: --
    Drawback: Strong poisons may be incurable or require large amounts of time to cure.
    Description: The user focuses chakra into their hands, creating a strong white glow. They then focus chakra into the patient’s body, causing it to rapidly create new white blood cells in order to fight off the unnatural substances within the body. It takes one post to remove the effects of a D rank poison, two posts to cure the effect of a C rank poison, four posts to cure the effects of a B rank poison, and eight posts to cure the effect of an A rank poison. The user can only cure poisons ranked equal to or lower than the rank they possess in this technique.
    Limit: Must be a medic.

    Saisei no Saibou (Cell Regeneration)
    Rank: B
    Skill: Ninjutsu
    Effect: The user activates the body’s natural regenerative potential to heal a critical injury.
    Special: --
    Drawback: Consumes 90% of the user’s chakra.
    Description: The user focuses the majority of their chakra into a large wound, activating cellular regeneration. The cells in the area begin to multiply rapidly, healing over the injury in a matter of moments. This technique cannot regenerate a lost limb, only heal a devastated one. This technique leaves the user almost completely drained.
    Limit: Must be a medic. Must know Dokutaika no Jutsu B Rank.

    Shiiru Sosei no Jutsu (To Force Resuscitation Technique)

    Special: "Handseals", holding hands over the chest, no more than a foot from the heart.
    Drawback: If the user moves their hands too far away from the chest, then the technique will fail. Only works on a dead body if it is within the first minute of the body falling dead.
    Description: A tricky Medical Ninjutsu that has, nonetheless, saved many lives, Shiiru Sosei no Jutsu works by channeling chakra directly to the heart of the patient, causing it to beat. This chakra disregards numbing effects, since the chakra causes the heart to beat against its' own will. Aside from that, when a person dies, their brain stays active from one to ten minutes before perishing. If the heart can be restarted, then the patient can be saved. With a two-person medical team, one Ninja may perform this technique while the other focuses upon treating the symptoms of death. If worked correctly, a patient who would otherwise be dead may be saved and, potentially, be brought back to life. If the brain has already ceased activity, then this technique will not work.
    Limit: Must be a medic.

    Shikyo Toransu (Death Trance)
    Rank: "A" Rank
    Skill: Ninjutsu, Medical
    Effect: Allows the user to induce a state of near-death that is real enough to fool all except the most expert examiners.
    Special: "Handseals"
    Drawback: ---
    Description: A powerful Medical Ninjutsu that forces the target into a deep sleep. While within this sleep, their bodily functions are reduced to the bare minimum necessarily to keep an individual alive. The smallest sliver of a heartbeat, the shortest intake of breath, all are reduced to the point that it is nearly impossible to tell that the one suffering from the technique is actually alive at all. Such is the case that, when the technique is performed, only those who have a mastery over the Medical Arts will be capable of telling if the afflicted target is alive. This can be used on oneself with no wait time. However, if attempting to use on a different individual, the user must keep physical contact with the person for a full post or else the Trance will not initiate. If used on oneself, the user is capable of breaking the trance within the first five posts of placing it upon his or herself. Another Medical Ninja who knows this technique may also break it within the first five posts of having it placed upon them. For any other situation, chakra must be directly applied to the heart in order to stimulate an increase of the body functions, which breaks the trance.
    Limit: Must be a Medic.

    Recall Memory
    Rank: A
    Skill: Medical Jutsu
    Effect: This jutsu allows the patient to recall a repressed memory and build off of it for eventual recall of repressed events or temporary Amnesia
    Special: --
    Drawback: The user has no way of viewing the memory that is unsealed in the patient's mind. Cannot Assist a patient that has total Amnesia.
    Description: Temporary Amnesia is a terrible thing and when you simply cannot recall an event it can be quite troubling. This is a medical jutsu that is made to allow a patient to do just that. The user would summon chakra to their hands creating a Gray flow around their hand and they would strike that hand to the crown of the patient's head. The patient would then be rendered unconscious and would dream of the memory that occurred in third person.

    Rank: A
    Skill: Medical Taijutsu
    Effect: This jutsu allows the patient to deliver extremely powerful blows, far beyond human strength levels.
    Special: --
    Drawback: --
    Description: By concentrating large amounts of chakra to an area that the user has an intent on striking a target with, then releasing that chakra into the target in question upon contact, the user greatly increases the power and damage of the blow. Using this method, a simple finger can cut gouges into the earth, a punch or kick becoming strong enough to shatter through stone as if it were glass. With this power at one's finger tips, a single blow is often enough to kill or maim enemies. Due to Eki's amazing control over this technique, when used, the very air surrounding a thrown blow will burst outwards, creating a vacuum and increasing the damage further. This extends his range, by up to six inches, making even simple palm thrusts, should they fall short, knock enemies off their feet. With this ranged version, naturally the damage isn't as focused, and only a throwing effect is achieved, rather then the force being concentrated into the target's body.

    Tools


    A ninja is only ever as good as their tools, or perhaps the tools are only ever as good as the ninja. Whatever the case may be, Eki carries about a plethora of equipment, weapons and accessories that continually aid him on his path of the shinobi. At any given time, many of these weapons will be found not in his pockets, but in the very fabric of his clothing.

    Weapons

    Spoiler:
    To Be Purchased

    Accessories

    Basket
    Rank: -
    Description: A woven basket slightly larger then a basketball that Eki carries, often at waist either at his back or side. This basket is a comfortable place to relax for Shinju, the albino king cobra and Eki's beloved pet. She has a tendency to spring towards targets from the basket, whether Eki wants her to or not. The basket can also be used as a distraction, whereas the enemy may think it contains a snake, when Shinju is hiding elsewhere.

    Pungi
    Rank: -
    Description: A pungi is a wood wind instrument that was originally developed for indian music. In modern times, it is the essential tool for a snake charmer. While typically these instruments are pitchy and nasally sounds, Eki's tend to have quite the melodic tone to it. Make no mistake though, as while Shinju enjoys and may dance to the music, she is by all means not charmed, nor is any other snake under the Pungi's "spell". Eki simply enjoys music, as does Shinju, and often plays the flute before and after meditation.

    Eki's Gourd
    Tied to his belt and hidden beneath his robes, Eki's personal safety blanket is a dark blue gourd. Within it it, cactus blue ale lies, a sake made from the fermented fruit of the Grall cactus. The drink is potent, one swig being able to knock out most lightweight drinkers. As a now experienced drinker, a single swig will get Eki quite tipsy, two leading to being drunk. A third, and he'll barely be able to find his feet. Taking small sips every twenty minutes or so, he likes to keep himself in the tipsy state.

    The whole spirit realm thing with the Hotaru

    Entering the spirit realm is a bit much..don't you think? It would allow you to literally talk with the dead. And the ability itself doesn't make much sense, as well as the seal to disrupt someones connection to their spirit animal, and the spirit world. That, i don't have to big a problem with seeing as it would only work with those of the Hotaru, but my only problem is simply entering the spirit world. Thats something that isn't exactly possible through just a trance, and may not be possible outside of the Rinnegan.


    Gotta remove all Jutsu and abilities of specialties you don't have, no matter the rank. You'll have to create them in the Other Creations forum and train them if you want them re-added to your character.


    [Soutei Hebi Kawarimi] Binding Snake Replacement

    You have that listed twice in a row, one after another lol

    Shikyo Houyo Odori (Death Embracing Dance)

    You don't have the Genjutsu specialty.

    Onkyou Hitoku no Jutsu

    You have that listed as Ninjutsu, but it's Genjutsu

    Itsushika Ugoki no Jutsu

    You don't have Genjutsu.

    Shinkan Enchou (Silence Dome)

    That would be a type of Fuuinjutsu.

    Hone Chiyu (Bone Healer)

    What do you mean by movements? If not, it needs a length on how long it'd take to fully heal someones bone. If movements are posts, then the posts need to be extended greatly.

    Shosen no Jutsu (Healing Hands Technique)

    The post counts need to be extended greatly as well. You could heal yourself right in the middle of battle if you wanted to in a mere 3 posts. Or heal up a comrade so quickly.

    Saisei no Saibou (Cell Regeneration)

    Describe how long it takes to completely heal a devastated limb, or a wound in general when healed by this.


    A problem i spotted with a lot of your herbs in general.

    A lot of them do things that are far to much for a simple herb to do. I saw stuff that involve instant healing, sense heightening, stuff for basically every situation. I honestly don't see nature being able to produce things that are capable of doing that so easily, even if the preparation is a struggle. You should probably look through the list, and use your own thoughts and judge each herb yourself, or remove a bunch. There are a ton that do the same thing, or have really basic short descriptions on what the herb actually does.

    It somewhat seems as if you didn't look over them 1 by one yourself.



    Gariig

    Restores all of your chakra if eaten within 2 days? This would require a clan like the Akamichi, or some type of food eating clan. I understand basic chakra pills and all, but restoring your chakra fully..

    You'll have to remove that, or change it's effect.

    Nightcall

    For a type of herb, that improves your overall senses far to much.

    Delrean

    I hope this doesn't apply to those who use insects as weapons in their clan..right?

    Garden Flax

    Be more descriptive on how "chewing" on this plant will make your entire bodies feeling to pain, vanish.

    Goat’s Rue

    Describe what kind of poisons it can, and cant cure.

    Hawkweed

    To improve your eyesight by double, even if just for 3 posts, is far to much for a simple herb created by nature to do.

    Kelventari

    I take it 1 turn would be 1 post, or from it being applied, to your next post? That's far to fast. That's faster then healing Jutsu.

    Laumspur

    Give detail on how fast it heals. It seems to me like it instantly heals the way an HP potion in a game would.

    Oiolosse

    Again, describe how fast it increases your natural healing time.

    Rose Campion

    That's not something nature could produce.

    Saffron

    Needs far, far more detail on how it increases your chakra and strength, and by how much.

    Sanicle

    Once again back to the healing time..

    Scented Mayweed

    Curing blindness isn't something nature itself can produce.

    Shank Shrub

    Needs more detail on how it's capable of killing the one the seed is inside of. And curing the wound through 1 round is far to fast.

    Sweet Trefoile

    2 round heal...far to fast.

    Willow-Herb

    Hopefully not snakes under a players command? Or snake summons?




    Lastly..Your weapons, just know they're all D rank seeing as you don't have weaponry, and they don't contain any unique abilities. Aside from that:

    Light Grenade

    "Training" your body to ignore the effects of the concussive waves would take more then body training IMO. If you're immune to this, that would mean you're also immune to most other sound based Jutsu one may have.

    Basket

    You forgot the part where you put it over someones head and steal all their stuff.

Thats something that isn't exactly possible through just a trance, and may not be possible outside of the Rinnegan.

    Has absolutely no pertinence on the strength or power of the character. This ability is based on Native American Shamanism. Buddhist's aren't the only ones who thought they had enlightenment. And actually, the Rinnegan never displays the ability to actually cross over, rather abilities for manipulation of. Entirely different fields concerning the spirit realm. Eki has no power there, but he can visit it all the same. Furthermore, only his spirit transitions, astral projection style. His body would be entirely defenseless.

    [Soutei Hebi Kawarimi] Binding Snake Replacement

    Shikyo Houyo Odori (Death Embracing Dance)

    Itsushika Ugoki no Jutsu

    Shinkan Enchou (Silence Dome)

    Removed or Fixed.

    Hone Chiyu (Bone Healer)

    What do you mean by movements? If not, it needs a length on how long it'd take to fully heal someones bone. If movements are posts, then the posts need to be extended greatly.

    Shosen no Jutsu (Healing Hands Technique)

    Saisei no Saibou (Cell Regeneration)

    Describe how long it takes to completely heal a devastated limb, or a wound in general when healed by this.

    Cell regeneration has a time description, re-read it, there's a reason it requires 90% of one's chakra. I won't increase the post count on healing hands, or bone healer. You seem to be misunderstanding how medic's work, as the idea is to heal quickly, so your comrades don't die. There's a reason this requires an entire specialty to use this ability.

    A problem i spotted with a lot of your herbs in general.

    A lot of them do things that are far to much for a simple herb to do. I saw stuff that involve instant healing, sense heightening, stuff for basically every situation. I honestly don't see nature being able to produce things that are capable of doing that so easily, even if the preparation is a struggle.

    It somewhat seems as if you didn't look over them 1 by one yourself.


    No, I certainly did. You have to understand, Eki doesn't have ANY of these herbs on him, and they can only be collected in non-combat threads. (I can't just be loosing a fight, and look down to go "Oh look, that perfect herb that would save my ass.") Not only do they need to be found and harvested by area, but also by season. Eki lives in Kirigakure, and has yet to learn about the herbs from that area. Furthermore, all require specific preparations. SO let's move on down the list.

    Gariig

    Restores all of your chakra if eaten within 2 days? This would require a clan like the Akamichi, or some type of food eating clan. I understand basic chakra pills and all, but restoring your chakra fully..

    Within two days from harvesting. It also takes a day to prepare. This means there's a one day window in which someone can eat it and it'll still restore chakra.

    Nightcall

    For a type of herb, that improves your overall senses far to much.

    This has appropriate draw backs. It takes two days to prepare. Constant dosing will leave the user as a headcase.

    Delrean

    I hope this doesn't apply to those who use insects as weapons in their clan..right?

    Willow-Herb

    Hopefully not snakes under a players command? Or snake summons?

    Absolutely they do. And it's entirely within the realm of real world possibilities, never mind Naruto possibilities. Fir trees are known to release oils that will force insects to entirely avoid them. And it's an alchemical reaction in which willow-herb repels snakes, it fucks with their heat pits.

    Garden Flax

    Be more descriptive on how "chewing" on this plant will make your entire bodies feeling to pain, vanish.

    Ever had Opium?

    Goat’s Rue

    Describe what kind of poisons it can, and cant cure.

    Any poison has to be taken within one hour of the poisoning, and because it requires two weeks to prepare, this absolutely has to be thought of and prepared in advance. It also doesn't cure any already present symptoms, just the poison itself, which yes, will stop it from progressing, but if the poison gave the victim a fever already, they're stuck with a fever.

    I'll finish this up later. Just wanted to get the post out in order to get it started.

    On second thought, I'm going to redesign this.

    Why can't I be S rank again? My character is a missing nin, but he was a special forces leader...

    Because i don't allow loopholes like that. Only those who are actual leaders such as Kage's, or special force leaders are approved at S rank. Just cause you were a special forces leader in your history doesn't mean you can just hop to S rank.

    So then should i wait to go over the app again?

    Okay, removed any herbs you had a problem with.

    Forgot to address the light grenade.

    A friend of mine is in the canadian armed forces and can do this. The spetznas are actually trained to ignore the effects of the blinding light from nine-bangers entirely. It has more to do with expecting it that anything else, having training against this won't prevent you from being shell shocked from other sources.

    Also, been debating adding in another jutsu here, to now make up for the stealth techniques that were genjutsu based that I had to remove. Give me some time to work it out.

    You have both Ninjutsu, and Genjutsu on your app, but you don't have either of the 2 specialties.

    Whooops missed that D rank Gen tech.

    And Medical Ninjutsu allows you to have Universal Ninjutsu Technique, which is what all of my nin techs are. Having Medical Ninjutsu as a specialty simply restricts you from using Elemental or Puppetry Ninjutsu techniques. Which is why I classed the three of them as branches of ninjutsu, rather then their own separate specialties, so that each could sitll have access to universal ninjutsu for balance. Can't find your skill specialty guide now anyways though.

    You're allowed to have universal ninjutsu only up to C rank if you don't have the Ninjutsu specialty. And you're not allowed to start off with skills from skill specialties you do not have on your app. Even that was agreed on by you.

    And I removed the genjutsu accordingly, I missed one technique, which has now been altered to fit the specialties.

    The universal ninjutsu up to C wasn't what I had laid out in the pm I sent you though. Without that, this character is entirely useless

    Medical Ninjutsu, and Ninjutsu were agreed to be two separate specialties. Just like Puppetry is.

    Elemental Ninjutsu was agreed to be separated from Med and Puppetry, so that Medics and Puppeteers had no access to elemental techniques, not ninjutsu as a whole.

    They were restricted in order to keep balance, and have them rely more on their own main skills. Medical Ninjutsu, and Ninjutsu, even universal Ninjutsu, are not the same skill specialties. You have to have regular Ninjutsu on your app WITH medical Ninjutsu if you want to go above C rank universal Ninjutsu. If you don't have Ninjutsu on your app, you cant start off with Ninjutsu because it's not a skill specialty you have, thus you have to train the techniques in the Other Creations forum, and are limited to C rank universal ninjutsu.

    http://narutosd.darkbb.com/t58-character-rules

    Rule 13, it's been there for quite a while.

    I believe I've brought it up multiple other times on the app as well.
