    Clan History/Description

    Hyūga: The Chosen Ones


    Spoiler:
    Hyūga- A name that is instantly recognizable to most shinobi in the world, and for good reason. Once, in a glorious time almost lost to the world, the Hyūga controlled the first of the continent's great empires after the discovery of chakra. They were the original rulers, the first record keepers. It was the Hyūga that conquered the Land of Fire, and then the Land of Wind immediately after. It was only accursed luck that allowed the Land of Stone to resist the advance of what was power incarnate in these early days. Most things were still done with weapons and good ole taijutsu, with a healthy dose of strategy added in. The Hyūga were dominant in the final two categories, even for centuries after the collapse of their empire, and were an unparalleled fighting force at the time of its formation.

    Near the start of this empire, a bastard of the Hyuga was born: Hideshi Hyuga. His eyes were black, and when he grew older they transformed into a pale hue in a mockery of the pureness of the Byakugan. He was shunned, berated, shamed, and eventually driven out in an act of hostitlity that has marred the name of the Hyuga ever since. The Hyuga slaughtered every direct member of Hideshi's family, missing the accursed bastard due to a tip from a friend of his who had managed to catch wind of the plot. And thus, the beginning of this bloody rivalry between the two dojutsu of the Land of Fire would begin. The Hyuga's dominance would continue even after this bloody night, their sullied name not reflecting in their steel grip on their holdings.

    However, it was exactly this dominance that allowed the Land of Stone to come together and repel them and eventually destroy them almost entirely under the iron fist of the Tetsudashi and their powerful bloodline. This war against the Hyuga would not have succeeded if not for Lady Luck. Their power was snatched away in less than two decades, forever dooming them to less than they felt they deserved.

    It was Rikuto who led the Uchiha into open rebellion at a moment of weakness from within the clan. The early death of an emperor and a disputed succession that threatened civil war set the stage for a rebellion the likes of which had never been seen before. In 351 A.S at age 52, Rikuto Uchiha wielded his red eyes against the white of the Hyūga. He slaughtered all of the Hyuga led forces near his village, forces that were searching for their clan to exterminate his own kin. This small village in the south of the Land of Fire was the spark that ignited the first civil war in memory on the continent.

    Rivers of blood flowed for months as supporters of the Hyūga in the Land of Fire rose to meet the demands for men while unhappy nomads and lesser clans from the Land of Wind rose in rebellion in tandem with the Uchiha. Though no planning between the two had occured, their attempts for freedom were began within two weeks of each other. A hurried meeting between Rikuto and these clans forged an alliance under the condition that the Land of Wind would be under no obligation to the Land of Fire any longer. Hideshi was more than happy to accept the terms for the aid.

    Two years of bloody war where continued after, where brothers fought brothers and entire generations threw themselves at each other in a violent maelstrom of destruction. It was the first true test of Ninjutsu in a war, and the results were absolutely devastating. Rikuto had forced his clan to completely master the katon element, while the rest of the Hyūga merely dabbled in the arts in favor of enhancing their physical skills. Most other clans were similar, but the ones that weren't happened to side with the Uchiha. Because of this, the Hyūga were forced out of the Land of Wind entirely with any and all military presence erased. In a desperate attempt at a peace deal, they surrendered a small kingdom of land unto the Uchiha with plans to bide their time and then retake everything they had lost.

    Their troubles were not over though, as the Tetsudashi to the northwest invaded the Land of Fire that was under the control of the crumbling empire. The severely weakened state had no choice but to surrender and become a vassal after a quick and merciless war effort by their northern neighbors. This step is what gave the Tetsudashi enough resources to finally do what no other clan before had done and conquer the entire Land of Stone. This led to the formation of the Iron Empire, a watered down version of what the Hyūga Empire had once been. Half of the land the Tetsudashi gained was ruined after years of constant warfare, and was of little use for a generation or longer.

    The Hyūga during this time of subjugation were seen as weak due to their numerous losses for almost a full century. Their wealth and power declined, and when the Iron Empire invaded the Uchiha held lands to the south the Hyūga found many of their youths joining in an attempt to gain back the honor that had been so absolutely wrenched from their grasp.

    In a twist of fate too cruel for them to ever accept, the Hyūga found themselves giving an oath of fealty to a new leader in the Uchiha clan. He was the first to have gained the three tamoe Sharingan, and his skill was famed throughout the land. He had yet to lose a single battle or duel, killing anybody who got in his way with ruthless abandon. He was the first Kazuya Uchiha, the founder of what would become known as the Scarlet Kingdom. It was a short lived subjugation though, as history would never know that it was the Hyūga that hired the team of assassins that finally managed to end the somewhat aged Uchiha clan head. The plan was flawlessly executed, and it is a secret known only to the clan elders and the clan leader among members of the clan. It is a secret they simply cannot, and will not, let die.

    When the Scarlet Kingdom collapsed, the Hyūga moved to reclaim their ancestral lands as a sovereign state. The Uchiha didn't have the power or loyalty from vassals due to their short reign, and the split of what was still a powerful clan only made the decision easier to make. The Uchiha, despite their desires, were forced to surrender most of the north and north-east Land of Fire. Other clans pledged loyalty, expanding their realm by proxy to encompass almost a third of the Land of Fire proper with the Uchiha directly controlling much of the south-west with a few clans also expanding their realm size. It wasn't as large as the Hyūga's, but it was still a large and powerful state in its own right at the time.

    The Hyūga remained relatively calm for a few decades, solidifying their power. Hiyoto, the best clan head the clan has ever had, established a library whose sole focus was recording the history of the world around them. Events from every land were recorded as word got to them, and this library has been maintained in the ancestral stronghold of the clan ever since. The urge to retake the same lands their clan history claimed to have once held was still strong in the blood of the clan. With this urge, they declared war on a vassal of the Uchiha and drew them into conflict again. This war was quick due to Hiyoto Hyūga's leadership. He was a skilled taijutsu fighter in his own right, but his raw talent was not anywhere near the level as the clan's most skilled fighters. However, it was his mind and his fully matured eyes that set him apart as a paragon of the era. His predictions were almost always proven to be true, and soon his word became accepted as fact as his inhuman intellect and sheer understanding of the world around him became the level to be measured by even now.

    This cunning allowed Hiyoto to end the war after only a couple battles by sacrificing five-hundred soldiers as bait for a trap. As soon as the enemy army engaged, exactly where Hiyoto caluclated, he detonated a cache of explosives underneath the Uchiha led army that devastated it. Almost forty percent of it was wiped out just from the explosions and crumbling earth underfoot, while an uncalculated amount died from their wounds later. Two Uchiha princes were killed in the trap, and every man on the Hyūga side used as bait died as a result.

    The blow was decisive though, and the Hyūga wound up taking the rest of the eastern Land of Fire from Uchiha vassals as their price for peace. It was either accept or lose everything, and this attack is one of the primary factors in what resulted in the true hatred of the Hyūga rather than the regular hatred of them on the part of the Uchiha. The Uchiha understood why the Hyūga acted so hostile, as they would do the same if placed in the position of what was once the noblest clan on the continent. However, numerous fairly devastating skirmishes between the two clans had always been going on even when they were supposed to be on the same side ever since the two had become two separate entities. The Uchiha were fed up with the constant warring, but were just as unrelenting to let bygone be bygones as the Hyūga were. And thus, the wheels of war keep churning. The Hyūga never could quite garner the power to invade the Uchiha and be successful, though they did keep their eyes peeled for any opportunity that might present itself. Hiyoto took advantage of this down time to build his clan's economic and production capabilities to unseen levels before, and have only been recently matched. Under his leadership, the clan rose to heights close to but not quite at the level they had been at while ruling the lands they now fought to win back.

    The division was widened when the newly awakened monster in the Land of Wind led by the Kazehana invaded the Uchiha held lands in a bid to expand their realm to greener lands. This was the opportunity the Hyūga had been waiting for. They don't come to the aid of their cousins and the Senju as the two with some loyal vassals held back the tide of men sent by the Kazehana. Ultimately, the combination of Senju and Uchiha was exceptionally powerful and resulted in a successful defense of the Land of Fire. Almost immediately after the truce was signed, the Hyūga invaded the Uchiha held lands. The Senju chose to defend the Uchiha again, adding an obstacle the Hyūga hadn't exactly anticipated.

    This war would be the first of many that would come to a relatively bloody stalemate between the two clans for a few more centuries. Through it all, the Senju hired themselves out to other clans including both the Uchiha and Hyūga. Their wealth was bought with the blood of the Land of Fire, and may be one reason they were ultimately the ones who began to speak of true peace first.

    The final war between the two rival clans that ended in the foundation of Konohagakure was particularly bloody, with numerous casualties to both clans directly as well as to their loyal vassals in a very short time frame. The majority of the war was fought with small scall battles after the momentous losses of the first few months, though these games of cat and mouse led to a couple large battles in the last year. The final battle was one that was not intended to turn into a large battle, but things don't always go as planned. Toro Hyūga, the father of Tsuyo Hyūga, had led a small force of his kinsmen to scout out an area. They stayed in a small village as a temporary headquarters when they got to the area in question, unknowingly a little more than ten kilometers away from a large force of Uchiha.

    The first night they were in this village, Tsukami Hyūga awakened her fully matured Byakugan after dedicating the last decade to perfecting her skill with her eyes. This newfound vision granted the Hyūga the incredible advantage of twenty kilometers in scouting ability- which led to the discovery of the Uchiha army. Alerted at this, Toro sent word back to gather a force and circle around his coordinates. The message was taken by the fastest shinobi in the entirety of the Hyūga held territory, a man belonging to the Sarutobi clan. Once delivered, the army sent the requested men. They journeyed all night to ambush the Uchiha camp at dawn and the results were absolutely devastating to behold. Thousands of men were killed in the attack, and dozens of Uchiha lost their lives as the main camp was one of the first places hit and with the most men out of any part of the camp.

    This battle raged, with one of the famous Uchiha brothers wielding his Mangekyo Sharingan against an entire division. Toro Hyūga left his daughter, Tsuyo, breaking a vow he had made to her in order to deal with the threat himself. The ensuing battle lasted for an hour before the Uchiha brother began to run out of stamina and had to stop spending so much chakra to do so much damage at once. Toro's stamina was virtually unrivaled at the time by most natural men, and he had no issue outlasting his long hated, long forsaken kinsman before dealing the killing blow himself.

    Hours after, the second Kazuya Uchiha and the Senju clan head came to visit the resting Toro. This meeting, prompted by Kazuya and carried through by the silver tongue of the Senju persuaded a Toro already distraught with the toll the war had taken on his lands into a ceasefire that would also result in a powerful nation capable of surpassing that of the three which had already been formed. The Land of Fire came to exist as one nation thanks to two clans finally seeing no sense in killing each other anymore. At least, not in such an open and brutal fashion as war. The council formed to choose leadership for the new lands was comprised of numerous clan heads from minor and major clan heads in the Land of Fire who held large enough tracts of land to be considered powerful.

    A concensus was reached that Kazuya Uchiha would become the First Hokage, and Tsukami Hyūga would become the first Fire Daimyo. She had been unfortnately blinded in the final battle between the two clans from shrapnel caused by an explosive tag. Medics didn't get to her in time, as she was lucky to survive. Her eyes were a dear price to pay for her life, however, though she now frequently jokes about the situation when it is brought up. All lands in the Land of Fire were kept officially under the ownership of the clan that held them, though the territories were almost entirely subject to the Fire Daimyo as she would be the one to dictate where resources were allocated and to what regions. Her straight as an arrow, blunt approach to accomplishing her goals and a relatively unbiased opinion on the state of her country and its people means that the Land of Fire is under good leadership.

    Toro died from illness not long after the village was founded, as did his heir from the same sickness. This led to Tsuyo Hyūga attaining the title of head. She is a gifted martial artist and archer, with an impeccible sense of the world around her even without the use of her eyes. Her ascension was disputed at first, though she quieted any doubts of her abilities with an almost lethal match against her one serious contender for the title. He lost an eye, and she gained loyalty. It is under this new leadership and with newfound allies that the Hyūga find themselves, with all the potential of new glory there for those who wish to take it.



    Clan/Bloodline Traits & Characteristics:

    Most Hyūga are born with black hair and the pale eyes of the Byakugan. It is a very rare exception that a Hyūga does not possess their clan kekkei genkai, and those who do not are often shunned. The Byakugan does not possess a visible pupil when not activated and is pale enough that clan members are mistaken as blind by those who don't know of their bloodline. When active, the veins around the eyes bulge and the invisible pupil receives an outline and becomes visible, though the color does not change.

    The clan as a whole wears more formal clothing in the public setting, believing themselves to be superior to most other clans in a general sense. Before founding Konohagakure, clan members would dress in light armor for combat. Many still do even with the introduction of flak jackets, preferring to stick with what they know. The clan knows their history of strength and dominance in the past and consider themselves to be akin to royalty in Konohagakure, though the new generation does not follow this belief quite as religiously as their parent's generation does.

    Clan members can be counted on to be calm and rational in most situations, as they're brought up essentially from the time they're toddlers on being masters of the Gentle Fist. Members are often utilized on missions as scouts, providing the clan with abundant amounts of veteran warriors. This makes them used to the rigors of combat both physically and mentally as a whole, with their pride making up for whatever lack of experience they might have. Members are fiercly loyal to their clan, believing themselves to be the greatest out of any in the Land of Fire and perhaps even the world.

    The Uchiha hold a special place of contempt in the hearts of most Hyūga due mostly to the centuries of war between the two clans. Most clansmen hate their red-eyed cousins with a burning passion kept in check by their unwillingness to hurt the tenuous unity of Konohagakure. If they had the choice however, the Hyūga would jump at the chance to rid the village of the Uchiha whether by driving them out or by other more... brutal means.

    Bloodline Description & Abilities

    The Hyūga possess the innate ability, due mostly to their training with Gentle Fist, to emit chakra from every tenketsu on their body with equal ability. Alongside this ability, they also possess the fabled Byakugan of legend. The Byakugan comes in five different stages, with additional training resulting in increased abilities as the clan member's eyes mature. All levels grant the user nearly 360 degrees of vision around them which penetrates all physical objects and smokescreens, with overall range and focus increasing throughout the user's life. The Byakugan is capable of seeing chakra to a degree above that of the Sharingan, granting it its unique abilities to see the chakra circulatory system . It's capacity is great enough that it can discern chakra emitted by different people and also possesses the ability to tell if somebody is trapped in a genjutsu as well as its nature and when it was used. They Byakugan's ability to discern genjutsu results in their Perception boost being counted towards recognizing Genjutsu. Clones that are not Shadow Clones can be differentiated easily from the original by the Byakugan as well, as Shadow Clones have chakra circulatory systems just like the original does.

    Stage One: Starting Level-

    The clan member can see in all directions for fifty meters and may see the chakra circulatory system at this range. They cannot directly see tenketsu at this level. They cannot zoom in on anything at this level. Very basic abilities, with most clan members advancing past this stage early in their life. After ten posts of usage in a thread, the user's eyes begin to become strained and they are unable to clearly make out targets. This limit is increased by two posts for each tier of Constitution above D the user possesses. The user must use the Snake Seal to activate their eyes, so unfamiliar with them the user is. Stage One Byakugan requires an upkeep of .5 points of stamina every post.

    Stage Two: Trained Eye-

    With Stage Two the user's range of vision is increased to 500 meters in every direction and may see chakra circulatory systems at this range. They may read individual tenketsu on any target within 50 meters of themselves, and may focus their vision to "telescope" in on one target within 250 meters. Telescopic vision grants the Byakugan the ability to make out finer details about something rather than just a general view of it. This gives the user a more accurate outline of whatever it is they're looking at, with objects of any size able to be focused on. After fifteen posts of usage in a thread, the user's eyes begin to strain. This limit may be increased the same way as the first stage. Hand Seals are no longer needed to activate the eyes. Stage Two Byakugan requires an upkeep of .4 points of stamina per post of usage. Costs 250 experience to acquire.

    Stage Three: Adept Eye-

    At Stage Three the range of the Byakugan is extended to one kilometer, making any member possessing this level of their bloodline a useful asset on a mission. Most Hyūga possess a Byakugan of this level, with only roughly one-quarter of clan members advancing beyond this point. They may read individual tenketsu on targets within 500 meters of their person, and may telescope in on one target within 500 meters of themselves. At this stage, the Byakugans vision is capable enough that users may discern dislocated bones within someone's body and gains infrared abilities. The Byakugan is capable of tracking higher tier movements than usual, allowing them to perceive and react faster to the actions of others. This results in a + to Perception. The Byakugan may be used for 20 posts in a thread before eye strain sets in, with this limit increasing at the same rate as the stages before it. Requires an upkeep of .3 points of stamina per post. Costs 500 experience to acquire.

    Stage Four: Mature Eye-

    Stage Four practitioners are generally seasoned veterans within the clan, many of whom are middle-aged. Very few Hyūga will ever pass this stage of development. The range of the Byakugan is increased to ten kilometers and may make out individual tenketsu on targets within one kilometer of their position. The range on their telescope and infrared vision is increased to one kilometer, with their perceptive abilities enhanced even more than before. The bonus to Perception is increased to ++. The Byakugan my be used for 25 posts in a thread before strain sets in, making only the most daunting recon missions an issue for seasoned Hyūga. This limit may be increased the same as the stages before. Requires an upkeep of .2 points of stamina per post. Costs 750 experience to acquire.

    Stage Five: Mastered Eye-

    This level of mastery is only told of in legends, with perhaps one Hyūga every couple generations achieving it. Range is extended to twenty kilometers, resulting in what is easily the best scouting ability available to a shinobi. Their ability to read tenketsu is increased to five kilometers, with their telescopic and infrared vision extending to ten kilometers. Those who get above A rank Perception utilizing the Byakugan gain an ability similar to the one granted by natural S rank Perception in that their eyes are powerful enough to mimic being able to track something by the most minute details in their surroundings in the same way having S rank perception would allow them to track something. This is because of all the abilities and the sheer, almost inescapable range these powerful eyes give the user combined with a supernatural attention to detail in the first place makes it very difficult to lose a target once acquired. This allows the user to keep track of all threads in their timeline within a primary subforum (such as Konohagakure, or Eastern Land of Fire, etc) as well as create a hunting thread anywhere within that subforum and any forums contained within. They must still have a reason to be hunting someone, meaning this ability CAN NOT BE USED AS A WAY TO RANDOMLY BUMP INTO PEOPLE YOU WOULD OTHERWISE HAVE ZERO INTEREST IN. Responses must also be realistic. If you see something happen fifteen kilometers away, you won't be interrupting whatever it was that just happened or any of the events immediately after. Staff discretion may be enforced if someone is believed to be abusing this ability.
    While the user may be able to see what is happening, something must snag their attention while within their sight to justify reacting to the thread. So the user may be able to see someone walk into a building, but would logically only react to the thread that is taking place in if something like the building blowing up occurred. After 30 posts in a topic eye strain will begin to set in, with length increased by 3 posts for every tier of Constitution the user possesses above D rank. Requires an upkeep of .2 points of stamina per post. Costs 1,000 experience to acquire.

    Bloodline Limits & Drawbacks:

    The Byakugan gives the user a near 360 degree diameter field of vision, with one blind spot at the back of the neck above the first thoracic vertebra. This can be utilized to the advantage of one perceptive enough and coordinated enough to do so. When transplanted, the Byakugan is the only Dōjutsu which can be activated and deactivated at will by the transplantee.

    Due to their upbringing in the clan, all Hyūga must begin with the Taijutsu skill before any other skills or elements may be chosen.

    Certain barrier techniques and ninjutsu, such as Four Black Fogs Formation or the Hiding in Mist technique, block the vision of the Byakugan.


    Clan Techniques: 




    Name: Gentle Fist (柔拳, Jūken)
    Rank: A
    Power: B
    Activation Cost: 5 (3 if not disturbing tenketsu)
    Upkeep Cost: 5 point upkeep (3 if the user does not close/open tenketsu)
    Range: Self
    Speed: N/A
    Element: N/A
    Skill: Taijutsu
    Classification: Hyūga Clan Exclusive
    Requirements: C rank in Speed, Coordination, and Stamina, Taijutsu Skill
    Parent Technique: N/A
    Hand Seals: N/A 
    Description: The Gentle Fist is a form of hand-to-hand combat used by members of the Hyūga clan of Konohagakure. It inflicts internal damage through attacking the body's Chakra Pathway System, subsequently injuring organs which are closely intertwined with the area of the network which has been struck. To do this, the user surgically injects a certain amount of their own chakra into the opponent's chakra pathway system, causing damage to surrounding organs due to their proximity to the chakra circulatory system. Even the slightest tap can cause severe internal damage, hence the name "gentle" fist.

    By employing the use of the Byakugan they can target the tenketsu, thus enhancing the havoc and control a Gentle Fist practitioner can impose upon an opponent's chakra network. These 361 nodes are key gate-keeping interceptions in the chakra circulatory network, thus forcibly opening or sealing them in whatever manner the Gentle Fist user sees fit, is a powerful tactical option to have. The affected person's chakra flow can either be increased or disrupted completely, preventing them from using techniques or making them use more doing so.

    The fighting style itself is one based on redirection, quick strikes, parries, and counters. Since blocking a tenketsu takes only the slightest tap, the user can focus their entire attention on striking quickly and numerous times in a short span of time. The style uses quick and basic footwork to keep moving around their opponent to get inside their guard. Practitioners are agile and can change the angle of their attacks quickly with little effort. Even with these blocks and parries, if a Hyuga is skilled enough to aim their parries they could still block off tenketsu on the defensive. Besides blocking off tenketsu, each strike also damages the tissue around the tenketsu. In the torso, this means organ damage if the target takes enough strikes. There is a reason this fighting style is known as the strongest in the Leaf, if not the world.

    To block off a chakra point, the user simply injects a small amount of chakra into the chakra circulatory system. This applies to the techniques associated with Gentle Fist as a separate stamina cost. Alternatively, the user may open the target's tenketsu and causes them to utilize more chakra than they normally would for ninjutsu and genjutsu and the like due to the increased flow that they are not used to. For every 32 tenketsu opened, the afflicted person gains an additional 15 stamina points. These effects last five posts, and after they're done the target suffers an exhaustion penalty of one minus to all physical stats for two posts while they recover. Note: Once the excess chakra totals are reduced to normal, the remaining stamina is not directly proportional to what it would have been. Instead, if it was 50 before the extra went away it will remain 50. This is to prevent killing somebody outright with this ability.

    For closing chakra points in a normal situation, every 16 chakra points a person gets forcibly closed they receive 4 points in damage to their total stamina.This stamina is not gone permanently, only for as long as the tenketsu are closed. If they're forcibly opened, such as with a bijuu, the afflicted party will regain this stamina. For those too slow to keep up with the quickness of a Gentle Fist practitioner, a full string of sixty-four strikes is enough to down even experienced shinobi. In order to force open a closed chakra point, a source of chakra other than one belonging to the user must be used to force them back open. This means activating Perfect Curse Seals, utilizing a Bijuu, someone forcing chakra into you, etc. The influx of chakra must be at least 25 points in total. Things like Pressure Points of Harm and Death will not open the closed tenketsu as those involve increasing the amount of chakra already present. If none is there, none can be increased.

    For every 64 landed strikes, the target's body has taken enough damage to muscle tissue that their body begins to weaken. This is represented by a minus to Strength. This can stack only twice, for a maximum penalty of --. This damage lasts for the rest of the topic or until healed by a medical shinobi, whichever happens first. Internal organs are also heavily damaged, with internal bleeding beginning after only a handful of strikes to an organ. 30 strikes to one organ will cause that organ to be catastrophically damaged and fail, and the effects of this vary depending on the Constitution of the afflicted as well as what organ it is.

    Closing all the chakra points on somebody will, inevitably, kill them as the body needs chakra to flow in order to survive. Gentle Fist is also capable of cutting completely through small things made of chakra, such as Kidomaru's webs, of B rank and lower durability. This requires precision and a bit more chakra to accomplish, at least one rank lower cost to the cost of the technique being cut. It also requires an active Byakugan.

    Barriers of B rank and lower can be destroyed with Gentle Fist if an equal amount of chakra is put into destroying them. Chakra armors of B rank may be penetrated to inflict damage and seal chakra points, though their effects are not immediately neutralized. At 128 or more closed chakra points, chakra manipulation becomes virtually impossible from all the disrupted pathways.  Techniques that cost a D rank amount of chakra or lower are all that may be utilized from that point on out. At 64 blocked tenketsu, this limit is B rank and lower techniques. At 200 blocked tenketsu, no techniques above E rank may be utilized.

    Gentle Fist boosts a user's Speed by a + and Coordination by a ++

    Weaknesses:  If they're trying to reduce their opponent's chakra reserves, metal armors of C rank or higher and leather armors of B rank or higher may protect the target from these effects while still costing the Gentle Fist user chakra. Flak jackets, for this purpose, count as C rank leather armor if village issued. Utilizing any sort of chakra armor with Gentle Fist aside from Twin Lion Fists or non elemental Unique Boosters renders the chakra closing and opening unusable. Covering ones flesh with a chakra nature and injecting pure chakra from the same chakra point on the level of precision needed for Gentle Fist is just not possible. The user may exclude certain parts of their body from the benefits of a chakra armor in order to utilize Gentle Fist's chakra injection if they wish, however.

    Name: Gentle Step: Twin Lion Fists
    Rank: S
    Power: S
    Activation Cost: 25 (halved with only one head)
    Upkeep Cost: 10 (halved with only one head)
    Range: One foot
    Speed: N/A
    Element: N/A
    Skill: Taijutsu
    Classification: Hyūga Clan Exclusive
    Requirements: Gentle Fist, Minimum of B rank Perception and Stage Three Byakugan, or A rank Perception and Stage Two Byakugan. Minimum of B rank stamina.
    Parent Technique: Gentle Fist
    Hand Seals: N/A, brief charge time
    Description: Twin Lion Fists is a technique showcasing the highest level of refinement possible using the Gentle Fist style. The control must be constantly monitored with the aid of the Byakugan to ensure the chakra is maintained correctly. Typically, only the clan head and a few chosen members of the clan have access to the technique because of this complexity. It is an extremely difficult ability to learn, as the slightest mistake in chakra control will lead to failure, meaning it is a feat requiring the Byakugan. It's not because the main branch wishes to restrict the power of the other members, it's simply because the other members are not capable of learning it. The clan head chooses those they deem prepared to teach this powerful technique, placing them on a pedestal above the rest.

    The user changes the shape of chakra released from one or both hands into large guardian lion-shaped shrouds. Doing so greatly increases range and destructive power, especially when used in conjunction with their basic Gentle Fist strikes. The lion heads drain the chakra network of those they touch at a rate of 1 point of stamina per hit, funneled directly into the user's chakra system for their own usage. Chakra cloaks and armors of A rank and lower may now be penetrated while utilizing Gentle Fist instead of only B rank armors.

    The range of the technique also expands the range of the user's strikes, meaning one does not even have to touch an opponent directly in order to absorb their chakra. In order to do damage, however, the user must still make physical contact. Those on the receiving end of this technique who may have experienced the Gentle Fist in its regular form get a rude awakening upon feeling the amount of power now behind the user's blows. This is indicated with a boost to Strength of one tier.

    Weaknesses: The focus required for this technique and the nature of its operation prevents the user from weaving seals as a way to focus their chakra to perform ninjutsu or genjutsu. As a result, techniques of those skills that have handseals as a part of their requirement to use may no longer be utilized and neither can any techniques that utilize the hands as a part of their usage. Things like Rasengan, Chidori, etc. This effectively neuters at least half of many shinobi's arsenals and limits them to close range combat. Against a foe superior to them in that regard, this technique becomes a hindrance more than anything else.

    Parent Technique: Gentle Fist; Eight Trigrams: Sixty Four Palms
    Hand Seals: N/A
    Description: This is a highly versatile technique that can be used both offensively and defensively. Regardless of its usage, the manner in which it is done is the same. The user emits a constant stream of chakra from their palms while furiously moving them to form razor thin strands of chakra that are sharper than any steel blade, each with the cutting power of an A rank technique. When used offensively, the strands can be utilized to cut apart any object from bees to stone with ease. When used defensively, the strands are formed into a dome around the user that provides an absolute defense similar to the Rotation technique. Unlike Rotation, the sharpness and constant movement of the strands does not allow anything physical to get past its defenses.
    Weaknesses: This technique can't be used to completely overwhelm large scale techniques since it cuts rather than repels them. So a wall of flame would still do a lot of damage to the user of this technique since it doesn't matter how much one cuts fire; it's still fire. This makes it suited more for physical techniques and ninjutsu, such as doton element techniques, projectile weapons, and people.

    Parent Technique: Gentle Fist
    Hand Seals: N/A 
    Description:  This technique utilizes the chakra control gained through Gentle Fist training to release a large amount of chakra from all the chakra points on the user's body. It is also a defensive maneuver to compensate for the Byakugan's blind spot as the released chakra blocks any possible attack on the user. After releasing chakra from every tenketsu in their body, the user then spins rapidly to parry the attack, both creating a rotating shield of chakra around themselves and tossing away any nearby attackers. The user can also actively control the size and power of the sphere to suit the situation. The technique is also capable of reflecting an opponent's chakra against them. It is an extremely chakra efficient technique, with most of its difficulty coming in keeping the form of the chakra up rather than the simple expenditure of chakra.

    Physical attacks are all repelled by this violent rotation, making it very difficult to penetrate the defense. Chakra of any kind may be repelled, as the rotating shield of chakra simply forces any chakra that touches it off for the duration of the spin. The user may increase the range and power of the Rotation at will to ecompass a larger area or produce a denser shield for stronger attacks. S rank power attacks that are area wide attacks such as Majestic Destroyer Flame are counted as A rank against this technique, due to the small and focused area of defense utilized compared to the spread of power in such techniques.
    Weaknesses: This technique is only effective when rotating, since the chakra itself is not enough to stop a physical attack thus if they cannot spin, the user becomes vulnerable. The chakra rotation can be disrupted by some kind of hardy threading such as chakra flowed ninja wire or chakra threads, which slows down the user, binding and tangling them in, and ultimately forces them to stop. The user must also remain stationary for the usage of the technique, meaning a foe must simply wait for the user to stop spinning before attacking again.

    Requirements: Byakugan for chakra based attacks
    Parent Technique: Gentle Fist
    Hand Seals: N/A
    Description: A technique born from their innate ability to expel chakra from every tenketsu on their body, a member of the Hyūga clan can hit their opponent with a blast of chakra that will send them flying away from the user. This chakra is expelled with quite a bit of force behind it in a manner similar to Rotation, just without the spinning. The amount of chakra that may be invested into the technique is entirely up to the user, with higher ranked techniques requiring more chakra to break out of. This technique may also break chakra based techniques and prisons by utilizing their Byakugan to pinpoint weaknesses and target them. When breaking jutsu like this such as Water Prison, the chakra expelled forcefully destroys the chakra holding the technique together and thus ends it. The cost for this is equal to the jutsu utilized against the user. When breaking free from a person, the cost is equal to their tier of strength with anything above S rank strength unable to be broken with this technique.
    Weaknesses: Fairly niche technique in its usage due in large part to its very short range. The user has to be in a very disadvantageous position in the first place in order to even use this technique, meaning it's almost never used to gain an upper hand. It's only used to get the user back to a relatively level playing ground.

    Description:  A more powerful variation of Eight Trigrams Vacuum Palm. The user hits the target at close range with a powerful wave of chakra emitted from their palm, which sends them flying back, causing severe damage. This technique is easily capable of causing a person to destroy a boulder, meaning there is little which can stand up to its power.
    Weaknesses: Very short range when compared to the Vacuum Palm due to the highly concentrated chakra the technique is comprised of. Most of the damage is done when the target crashes into something, making it a bit less useful in open areas outside of stunning their foe.

    Parent Technique: Gentle Fist
    Hand Seals: N/A
    Description: This technique is similar in practice to Eight Trigrams Palms Revolving Heaven, but has a specific target rather than a general area. To perform it, the user precisely pinpoints the enemy's vital points with the Byakugan and releases a high-speed palm thrust. A "vacuum shell" compressed using the Gentle Fist is formed to attack the opponent's vitals from a distance in an attempt at blowing them off their feet before many shinobi could react. Additionally, the user may use one with each hand to increase the power of the technique to A rank for a conservative cost. Speed does not increase, however, and the same effect may be achieved by utilizing one in tandem with a fellow clan member.

    Description: This attack consists of a quick, precise thrust of the user's palm to the opponent's body. The attack sends chakra into the area of the foe the user struck to either stun them or if a more sufficient amount of chakra is used, cause severe internal damage in one blow. To indicate this, the user may pay up to 9 points of stamina to hit the opponent with more chakra than usual. The more chakra used, the more damage is inflicted. When struck by this technique, the opponent receives a penalty of a - to their constitution for every 3 points the user pays into this attack that lasts 4 posts. Subsequent hits with this technique renew the countdown for all minuses. If the target falls below E rank Constitution after taking enough of these, which would be quite a failure on their part, death becomes imminent from the damage wrought.
    Weaknesses: Very short range.

    Parent Technique: Gentle Fist, Eight Trigrams: Sixty-Four Palms
    Hand Seals: N/A 
    Description:  The Eight Trigrams Thirty-Two Palms is a basic maneuver of the Gentle Fist fighting style. It is essentially a halved version of the Eight Trigrams Sixty-Four Palms, but seems to be no less effective. This technique is used to close off the flow of chakra through thirty-two chakra points of an opponent's chakra pathway system. This level of damage is when the effects of the Gentle Fist begin to show themselves, with the opponent likely noticing how much more difficult it is to mould chakra. The same boosts apply to this technique as apply to Sixty-Four Palms, but without the last series of thirty-two strikes and its + to thoroughly finish their opponent.
    Weaknesses:  Same as Sixty-Four Palms as well as the basic Gentle Fist style. If Sixty-Four Palms is stopped due to the lack of the large step, it becomes this technique instead.

    Requirements: B rank stamina 
    Parent Technique: Gentle Fist
    Hand Seals: N/A
    Description: he Eight Trigrams Sixty-Four Palms  is a dangerous technique that only accomplished practitioners are able to learn. With the Byakugan's near 360° field of vision, the user envisions an Eight Trigrams circle. Then the enemy within this circle is hit with a series of violent blows, no matter where they are. By striking sixty-four of the tenketsu throughout the opponent's Chakra Pathway System their chakra flow is stopped in a couple large areas in their body, making them unable to even stand in some cases.

    Once someone is within range of the user's field of divination, the user assumes a Gentle Fist stance and begins to deliver the attack (Note: This divination circle is just the range of the attack. It does not mean anybody inside of it can be auto hit):

    First, two consecutive strikes to make two.

    Second, another two consecutive strikes to make four.

    Third, four consecutive strikes to make eight.

    Fourth, eight consecutive strikes to make sixteen.

    Fifth, sixteen consecutive strikes to make thirty-two.

    Sixth, another thirty-two consecutive strikes in succession to make a total of sixty-four strikes. The sixth consecutive set of attacks needs a strong step forward, because without it the technique will fail.

    Each set of strikes is done at an exponentially increasing pace and strength. The attack not only disables the enemy in most cases but also knocks them back with every set of strikes. This technique boosts Coordination and Strength for the first three sets of strikes by a + and the second set of strikes by a ++.
    Weaknesses: If the technique is stopped prematurely, the user can be stopped before maximum potential is reached. Their position could also be vulnerable, leaving them open to attack if their foe is an adequete opponent. If 128 Palms is stopped prematurely, it becomes this technique instead.

    Range: 15 meters
    Speed: N/A
    Element: N/A
    Skill: Taijutsu
    Classification: Hyūga Clan Exclusive
    Requirements: B rank Coordination, Speed, and Stamina before Gentle Fist boosts.
    Parent Technique: Gentle Fist, Eight Trigrams: Sixty-Four Palms
    Hand Seals: N/A
    Description: The Eight Trigrams One Hundred Twenty-Eight Palms is a technique of the Gentle Fist fighting style. It is essentially a doubled version of the Eight Trigrams Sixty-Four Palms performed at twice the speed. This technique is used to close off the flow of chakra through one hundred and twenty-eight chakra points of an opponent's Chakra Pathway System. This virtually eliminates their ability to use chakra for quite some time and makes it difficult for a majority to even move. Alternatively, it can be used to hit a great number of targets very quickly.

    Once someone is within range of the user's field of divination, they assume a Gentle Fist stance and begin to deliver the attack. With the amount of strikes in this technique, the user's body must be above the peak of physical perfection to even attempt it. With the number of strikes comes a further increase to the user's possible range of striking. Anybody within 15 meters of the user is subject to being attacked without the user missing a beat in their assault. This is indicated by an increase to Strength and Coordination for the purposes of attacking those within their large sphere of divination that is equal to Sixty-Four Palms, but with the last set of sixty-four strikes giving an additional + to the boosts.
    Weaknesses: Same drawbacks as the basic Gentle Fist style and Sixty-Four Palms. The higher boosts than usually allocated at the end can be avoided by stopping the technique during its weaker beginning phase.
