PostSubject: Forging and Re-forging [Training and Crafting] (flashback)   Tue Sep 26, 2017 7:30 pm

After leaving the Sunagakure War Council, Shin went directly to the Sand Forge where he had once been trained in the arts of war. Once upon these sands, Shin's smal body had been put under immense stress and intensive training in order to forge the outstanding shinobi he had become. It was only fitting that the re-forging of his human body occurred here as well. As such, Shin made sure to book a private room (of which only a select few people even knew the existence of) underneath one of the Sand Forge's oldest buildings.

Now that he entered it and noticed he was alone however, the pressure of what he was about to do finally came crashing down on him. Shin was decided to go through with this, but it was still an enormous decision. He was going to modify his own body and become a perfect work of art, something eternal. Something else. But first things first, he needed to make sure he was safe. Although Shin was planning to abandon most of his human form, it was impossible to completely abandon it. A part of him would always be human and that would be the "Core" of his being, his essence. Measures needed to be taken in order to protect this core.

And measures began being taken months ago, when the first Kazekage started designing what he called "The Devil's Heart", a sphere designed to protect the core inside it. The structure itself was not hard to pick, the sphere was the most resistant solid and the one which better absorbed impacts. Fitting everything he needed and wanted inside such a small area however, was quite a challenge. It took many days and sleepless before Shin was able to develop the wonderful work of engineering that was the Devil's Heart. After the plan was created however, it was a simple matter of actually crafting the parts and assembling the puppet. That part was far easier for someone as experienced as Shin in these issues, but it also took it's time. A week passed before he was able to craft every part and assemble the whole puppet. After he was done tho, Shin couldn't help but be proud of his work.

The next work of Shin was the first of a planned set of ten. The JuuKage Set, the Ten Shadows, a collection of deadly puppets planned by Shin to be the ultimate puppet weapon on the battlefield. He started with the frontliner, Reaper. Reaper was a lot of work... Unlike the Devil's Heart, the Reaper had a vast array of different steel forms that needed to be forged. From the spine blades to the incredibly complex skull and teeth, the Reaper was complex to the bone. And to make things more complicated, Shin had to make every single bone in its body hollow, so it would be able to store poisonous gas inside. Forging a ribcage was rather simple, but creating a hollow ribcage? That was a whole different business. Aside from the bone hollowness, Shin had to carefully design the mechanisms that would allow the puppet's ribcage to open up and close back at will. It was a nifty trick that would allow Shin to potentially trap victims inside the Reaper. The hardest part to craft was definitely the teeth and their mechanisms. Inside each tooth Shin had to install a tiny spring mechanism that would allow the tooth to split apart once it penetrated something. The Reaper's canine teeth were not detachable, however, and required a certain finesse to craft. Shin had to carefully create a small channel from which poison would flow as soon as the canines buried into some tissue. Crafting the entire set of over a hundred teeth and attaching them to the skull was not a fun job, but Shin was sure it would be tremendously efficient in battle. After the steel skeleton was done, all that was left was shaping the heat-resistant cloth into a cloak that would hide the puppet's features. Sewing definitely wasn't Shin's favorite hobby, but the ninja's hands were quick to learn everything he tried and it was not long before the entire puppet was complete.

Shin's following work was probably the most difficult and risky one so far. Usually, crafting a puppet did not pose much of a threat to the artist. All it took were some precautions not to infect oneself with the poisons applied on the blades, and care not to get cut by the sharp edges of the metals and the crafter should be relatively safe. Even so, many of them kept (and rightly so) the antidotes to every applied poison close at hand in case of emergency. As such, crafting puppets was a safe job. Unless...the crafter was not working with wood and steel alone, but with cells and real bodies.

The art of Human Puppets was one of the oldest and most well-kept secrets of Sunagakure no Sato. Upon becoming Kazekage, Shin had not hesitated in going to the secret library archives and study the art. At first, it was the mere curiosity, a skilled puppeteer wanting to know more about his art and the masters before his time. But Shin quickly realized the enormous potential of human puppetry and why it was such a well-kept secret. Upon studying the books for many hours, Shin transcribed the jutsu secrets into a scroll and burned the books. He hesitated at first- these books had been written personally by the very best puppeteers of all time, but Shin couldn't risk them falling into the wrong hands, no. He had to keep the secret with him at all times.

After learning how it was done, it was only a matter of equipping the room he'd found under the forge with the right equipment and materials, and practicing a little before doing the real deal. It certainly was not easy to perform surgery on his own body, but the process was done little by little. First, a finger or a toe. Remove the unnecessary materials, bones and weak tendons and replace them by steel and powerful ligaments of different metals. Strong oak wood fused with cartilages to retain flexibility but gain more resistance. Truly Shin could not tell how long the process took. Minutes, hours, maybe even days? But he was so focused on his work that he simply...did it. He kept bolting down wood, creating complex joints, changing every aspect of himself. And little by little, Shin Kazehana's old body became eternal. It became a work of art, and by the time Shin returned to the surface and saw the sun again, he was a different "being". The core was well placed inside the body's torso where once a heart had been, but everything else was different. Better.

But the best way to test this new body was putting Shin's best talents to work. After walking around the sands of the Sand Forge for a little while, Shin went back inside and grabbed some old plans for a puppet he had designed many years ago. It was a puppet only as good as its puppeteer and not particularly resistant. The Hell wasp plans and puppet required very delicate work under a magnifying glass in order to create the tiny mechanisms of a flying puppet that would end up being no longer than half a thumb. After ten of these were completed, he sealed them within his body and left.

Shin's training at the sand forge had begun at a very young age. Even before he was an official Genin or even an academy student in training, Shin used to sneak into the SandForge sands in order to train or just play there. This place held a special meaning for him. It was where he learned many technique, countless jutsu and had the wisdom and experience of the early age soldiers passed onto him. The medical ninjutsu was one of the first things he learned. Young Shin wasn't happy about learning these at first, but once they realized the kid had potential for it due to his above average abilities with chakra control the elders sort of forced him to learn. In a way, Shin was glad they had done it. Medical jutsu learning had certainly not been the easiest part of his shinobi life, but eventually Shin managed to reach some sort of success with it.

The first Ijutsu technique he learned was the Mystical Palm technique. It was one of the most basic techniques, despite its rank so he had to learn it. Instead of practicing on fish, Shin was made to practice on venomous scorpions, snakes and other less friendly creatures. Then came the Yin Healing Wound Destrction technique, which was quite the literal pain in the ass to master as Shin needed to harm himself to see the results of the technique he was practicing. Afterwards came the destructive Chakra Scalpel technique, which allowed Shin to cut muscles without harming other tissues. Learning this technique allowed him to start taking part in small operations and getting experience as a doctor. Once he had gotten some experience assisting in small operations he was allowed to perform surgery on dead bodies. Shin took this opportunity to learn more about the human anatomy and the master the Dead Soul Technique. After not fucking up with the dead, Shin was allowed to lead small surgeries, including those destined to remove poison from living creatures. This was when he learned the Delicate Illness Extraction Technique. Shin's first major surgery performance was after a particularly bloody battle when one of Sunagakure's best shinobis had lost an arm and there was an urgent need to restore it. Because they were running low on available doctors, the hospital was forced to rely on him and this was his first opportunity to perform such an important surgery. It was also when he mastered the Healing Resuscitation Regeneration Technique.

After being successful in the field of Ijutsu, Shin was trained in the art of Fuuinjutsu. For many weeks he was made to walk around carrying a large roll of clothing. the idea was for him to practice the Cloth Binding Technique until he could perform it without delay on any occasion. It was a stressful week, but the training method proved to be efficient and soon he had mastered the technique. Afterwards he was put to work at sealing different objects within scrolls for easier transportation. These objects went from cabbages to massive war weapons. The varity of forms, density and weight of the objects made Shin an expert at the Enclosing Technique. Naturally, after learning the Sealing Technique Shin was told to learn the Unsealing Technique. Because why the heck would you want to seal things inside scrolls if you couldn't get them out of there? Mastering the sealing and unsealing of objects made Shin wonder whether or not he would he able to seal other things inside scrolls such as elements. This was far more difficult than sealing the metal of weapons, and on his spare time, Shin was only able to figure out the Fire Sealing Method Technique. Noting his rapid advancement in the sealing arts and the rather large amount of chakra he had, the elders of the village asked Shin to master the Barrier Five Gates Seal technique to be used in case of emergencies. The more shinobi knew about this technique, the safer the village would be. Shin gladly obliged.

His elemental training included the use and mastery of vacum techniques, which worked in a completely different way from Wind Release jutsu. His regime included the perfection of Wind Release: Vacuum Blade on his puppets, whih greatly improved their destructive power. From there, all of the other Vacuum techniques got their turn to be acquired by Shin. He trained Wind Release: Vacuum Wave first, then its derived jutsu, Vacuum Great Sphere. Afterwards he learned the more traditional Wind Release: Wind Waves.
