North in the land of the new generation of Shinobi lies one of the five great villages; Kumogakure. The position of the village matches the very definition of Kumogakure, meaning “Village Hidden Among Clouds”. Four enormous mountain ranges protect and mask many of the villages in Kumogakure from the outside world. It is here in Kumogakure that the majority of the shinobi specializes in lightning techniques and swordplay. With lightning being one of, if not the fastest element in terms of speed, Kumogakure is home to very fast and deadly jutsu practitioners who put their heart and soul into their training. In addition, with their knowledge of swordplay they are able to unleash nasty kenjutsu techniques that can easily rival any swordmaster outside of Kumogakure. Anyone who wishes to become one with their sword would be making a mistake by not bringing their skills here. And unlike other clans, Kumogakure has a group designed for those who have lost their eyesight at a young age. With training here, one of their greatest strengths is a weakness to many in their position. Lastly is the ryuugan eye that the clan members possess, which while at first only provide information to the user, can provide many benefits on a cosmic scale at the higher levels. As one of the five great villages they originally possessed a female Raikage though their hard times and invasions. But unfortunate events have occurred and now the title belongs to Asuka Sinobi, a young but determined shinobi who serves his village meticulously..
Dattoumaru Clan: From the Hidden Village of Cloud, this clan of taijutsu users is reputed for their advanced bloodline, which gives them lightning speed and many other combat advantages. They are respected and well known in the Thunder Country as expert in Missing-Nin assassination.
Sinobi Clan: Well known for being one of the head clans in the village, long ago Gashir Sinobi traveled to Konoha to make peaceful relations between Konoha and Kumo who were at the time, in a war. While there, he attempted to kidnap Hyuuga Hinata, but failed. Since then, the clan has worked hard to redeem themselves through training to become great cloud shinobi.
Miyanari Clan: This is the clan the Raikage is from, as well a one of the richest and most respected in all the country. They specialize in swordplay, and techniques for use with a sword.
Dodai Clan- Dodai possesses the Lava Release kekkei genkai, allowing them to combine both fire and earth natured chakra, which he can use to create a resistant, rubber-like substance as seen with his technique, the Lava Release: Rubber Wall, or create large rubber balls, which can serve multiple purposes. He has also shown that he can manipulate the lava to form a rope out of this rubber that can be used to grab things with. Unlike the other known users of the Lava Release, Dodai is not only shown to emit the substance from his mouth, but is also able to create it externally.
Enkou Clan: Those of the Enkou Clan posses abilities and jutsu that revolve around heat, fire, and the sun. They can be identified by their eyes. Their eyes are constantly red and it said that the redder their eyes are, the stronger they are. They are weakened when the sun goes away, mostly night time.
As a Enkou grows older, they gradually become blind due to the constant use of fire and heat straining their eyes. Once they become blind, they can identify objects by the heat they give off.
Also, a Enkou is fueled by the sun, and their energy is given from the sun. So when using a bloodline jutsu, it requires no chakra from them since their ability to mold and use fire and heat are natural. This is the only clan in Hidden Cloud that does not reap the benefits of the Ryuugan Eye.
Pupils appear like this when active:
Disadvantages: The Ryuugan Eye can do nothing but give information to the user. It holds no offensive capabilities.
Ryuugan Eye Lvl 1:Gain 25,000 Skill Points. At this level, the user is able to use the Ryuugan Eye as a tool in battle to better know their opponent. The user will instantly have a basic feel for how powerful their enemy will be to fight and what type of jutsu they prefer to used.
Ryuugan Eye Lvl 2:Gain 50,000 Skill Points. As the user has grown stronger, so has their control of the Ryuugan Eye. At this level, the user is now able to carefully analyzes their opponent throughout the fight in order to be able to better predict what type of technique is being preformed by the opponent. The user is also able to locate "weak" spots where the opponent is vulnerable to attack. User is granted immunity to almost all Genjutsu Techniques.
Ryuugan Eye Lvl 3:Gain 100,000 Skill Points. The user is now able to completely master the Ryuugan Eye. At this level the user is able to synchronize their soul with the world around them. The user is granted a type of prescience that allowed them to see anywhere past, present, or possibly even future. They are even able to preform "Astro Projection", to send their image anywhere they want within time and space.

The ferry arrived at the Docks to the Hidden Cloud village. It was raining, as usual. The mountains located a few miles behind the village made the climate very wet, and everyone was walking around wearing raincoats. The village's weather resembled Britains, as it almost constantly rains there too.
After she got off the boat, a tall and rather bulky man stepped up beside her, in a raincoat of course. He held out a large arm with another raincoat on it, and Renka took it. While putting it on she smiled. "Hello Sansu, how have you been?"
"Just fine. Your father wants to see you..." He stated duly, and turned to walk off.
Renka followed him, soon catching up to walk right beside him as they headed to the Raikage's office building.
Once inside, the two hung up their coats on a provided rack, and proceeded to the Raikage's personal office. Sliding the door open, Renka entered her father's room, while her tutor stayed outside the door. Bowing respectfully, she stepped onto the tatami mats, and sat down on her knees.
"Welcome back." He said in a cool voice. The Raikage was rather old looking, with white hair, but not frail in the least, he was perfectly fit, and able to fight at a moments notice. "I trust you have heard of your new career."
"Do not address me as such while we are working. You are strictly my foreign minister and ambassador now, and you will act as such."
"now, on a more personal note. You are lucky the exams have been postponed, because i recieved a note that you were late...This will not happen again. You will go and train with Sansu now, until you must leave for the exams. No more studying, all techniques and skills. You will not fail this exam." His personal note wasn't very warm.
Renka, bowing her head again, stood up and left the room, slowly closing the door behind her. Once she was out of there, a seeming weight was lifted from her shoulders as she looked at her long time friend and teacher. "You heard him, let's go train."
"Don't you want to rest up from your jou-"
"No, the sooner we start the more i learn." and with that, the girl stalked out of the hallway, grabbed her coat and walked back out into the rain. She headed for the training grounds.
Posted: Tue Oct 04, 2005 12:56 pm
The two soon arrived at a large grassy field, surrounded by a circle of trees with wooden 'men' on one side, targets on the other. The training grounds. Renka lead Sansu to the middle of the 'arena' and took her raincoat off. She drew her sword, and stood facing Sansu.
He took his coat off as well, revealing the rather large katana on his back. He drew the blade as well and faced Renka. "Right. We will start with the basics. You don't know how long i've waited for this day." he said smiling as water dripped down his face. "First, Iado. i've taught you what it does, but you have never performed it..."
"I've never performed any...."
"y-yes...thats right." He smiled a little. "Now, Sheath your sword." He placed his back inside the sheath on his back and waited for her to do the same.
"What kind of sword technique uses a sheathed sword?" She scoffed for a moment, before the glare he gave her made her obey.
"Now, watch...." He said as he turned to face a wooden dummy not far off. Crouching down, he gripped the hilt of the sword, and then dashed towards the dummy. In a lightning quick action, the sword flew from the sheath using the force to chop the entire arm of a wooden dummy off. Standing up, he turned towards Renka, resheathing his sword. "Thats what."
Renka stood there, quite amazed, and then smiled. "How do you do this?"
"First, the sword must be sheathed. The attack force is the momentum caused by unsheathing the sword. The friction of the sheath and the force of pulling it out makes it an effective attack, although it takes time to perform. Not a good technique to use in the middle of a battle. Now, enough talking, you try."
Nodding, the young cloud-nin faced her own wooden dummy. Exhaling for a moment, she then dashed at the figurine, her hand on er sheathed sword. About five feet away, she used all of her force to pull the sword out. It was tougher than she though, as the friction of the sheath wanted to keep the sword in. SHe didn't even manage to get the tip out, and that caused her to lose balance and fall face first into the mud. "Ack!" and with a loud SPLAT, she layed on the ground.
If her face weren't covered in mud, anyone could easily tell it would be all red from embarassment.
Posted: Tue Oct 04, 2005 1:21 pm
"It's okay, just get up and try again..." Sansu said, trying to encourage her. "It's tought to pull the sword out, some less skilled shinobi actually wax the inside of their sheaths for this technique, but i am confidant you'll geat it this time. See? all that was left in the sheath was the very tip, just try again."
Huffing, Renka stood up, and walked back to her previous position. She saw the skid marks she left in the mud when she fell, and her cheeks reddened once more. Resheathing her sword, the young cloud-nin crouched down. She pulled the sheath out just a little to test how hard it was to pull out, and put it back in, satisfied. SHe began to runn again, and once more at about five feet from the dummy she used all of her strength to pull the sword out. Success! the tip of the blade swung with intensity.
A loud THWACK sounded through the air, as Renka found that her sword was deeply imbedded in the left shoulder of the wooden dummy.
"Good job. Now the other half of the technique....Getting the blade out. Only after years of practice can thios technique actually cleave through wood. You did very good for your first try."
Frowning, Renka began to tug on the blade, but to no avail.
Sansu then continued. "Now, yo have completed that technique...let's move on..." He turned away and began to ramble off on the next technique, " The cut and thrust....it's a standard technique..."
Renka, meanwhile, was still trying to pull her sword out. Then, all of a sudden, the wood let the blade go, and she stumbled backwards before falling once more. "Oof!" was all she let out, as she fell.
Sansu then turned around to see her on the gorund. "What are you doing down there?"
"Nothing...." She said standing up. She was now officially covered in mud."Continue." she blurted out. This might have been a bad idea to train in the rain.
Posted: Tue Oct 04, 2005 1:34 pm
"Right. The Cut and thrust. You charge at the oponent, thrust your sword forward, to pierce the enemy, and then slash down. Here, let me show you." He stopped walking, and pulled his sword out from the sheath. Holding it in two hands he went through the motions of stabing forward, twisting the blad slightly, and then pulling down. "As soon as you can succesfully cut a wooden dummy down by using this technique twice, to make on 'V' shape, seperating the top half from the bottom will you be good on this technique." He stated very simply.
"You've got to be kidding.." She muttered as she brushed mud off of her uniform. "Fine....i'll do it.." She called out to him.
Closing her eyes for a moment, Renka caught her breath and concentrated. Snapping her eyes open, the girl rushed at the wooden dummy, with her sword pointing forewards, tucked into place at her side. "Hah!" She yelled as she stabbed the wood, the sword going straight through, poking out the other side. With forced effort she tried to turn the blade, but it barely moved. Pausing for a moment, Renka regripped the hilt to turn it, . Finally, the wood gave way, and let her turn the sword. Now with the blade in the right position, she strained to pull it downwards, but it wouldn't budge. She tried again, but it didn't move. "Gah! i hate this!" she screamed as she tried one last time, and managed to pull the blade through the wood, half way.
"Not bad...but you need to do it in three consecutive moves...no pausing...try again..."
Grumbling, she pulled the sword from the wooden torso, and backed up. "This in impossible, how am i upposed to cut wood?!"
"Don't complain, just do it."
Sighing, she prepared to try the move once more. She ran at the wooden block, and stuck her sword in the hole she already made. Turning it, she pulled down quickly and cut the left side clean through.
"Good, now the other side..." he said.
"But that was cheating!" She yelled, frustrateed that she didn't actually do it.
"Yes, i know, just do it to the other side."

She was breathing heavily from all of the physcal activity it took to try and slash through wood, but she held her sword up, determined to disembowel this lump of wood. Growling a little from frustration, she charged once more.SHe stabbed the wood with her sword and quickly turned the blade to the right and slashed down with all of her might. Her sword cut cleanly through the log, and the top half slid off of the bottom, leaving the two cut marks that formed an upside-down 'V'. STanding up straight, Renka wiped rain from her eyes and looked at her tutor. "i have to try again...i cheated on the first one..."
"No, thats fine, the technique was good...you know how to do it now, just practice a little some other time...we need to move onto the other moves..." He said as he walked up beside the muddy girl. "Now, the next technique is an easier form of the cut and thrust...it's just the thrust. It's just one attack, where you slash down at an oponent, from the top of the shoulder to the opposite hip. It's not as tough as the last one....but, now, i want you to use the technique twice one right after the other. What you do it make a slash from the one side, cutting the wood clean apart, and then before the stump slides off to the ground, you make another attack on the other side. Your goal is to get three different blocks of wood to fall on the ground by using two slashes, making one 'X' shaped mark..."
"What? why can't i just learn the basic technique?!"
"Because your better than that...now, Go." he stated, after he gaver her a pat on the shoulder and moved back. "The key is, to be quick!."
"Yeah, i got that..." She said while sighing. Catching her breath for a second, she charged at the next wooden dummy, and slashed down at it. She managed to cut the one side, and she was going to slash at the other side, which was quickly falling to the ground, but it was tood late, her sword stuck into the wood, and the piece she was supposed to cut lay in the mud. "Damnit! it falls to fast!"
"Do it again, on the next dummy...."

"It's not going to work...i'm not fast enough..." She said as she walked over to the next dummy. And prepared the sword. This time she would try it without the charge.
"Yes you are, i saw how fast you did the cut and thrust when you became angry, just try and do the same thing when your calm."
"but i'm not calm!"
"Hush, cose your eyes and meditate for a few minutes, clear you mind."
"....fine..." She said as she closed her eyes, and began to push all of her worries and thoughts from her conciousness. About three minutes later, she opened her eyes and stared at the wooden dummy. Lifting her sword, she brought it down slowly to the shoulder of the wooden dummy, marking the place where she wanted to hit. Sucking in air, she lifted the sword, and then she exhaled quickly while slashing down with the blade. It went clean through, and sh brought it up with lightning fast speed to cut the other side. A second later, three pieced of wood lay in the mudd and her tutor walked over to examine them.
"Hmmm....you let it fall. See here? this pieceis small than the opposite side, and this piece is too big. Try again on the next one, you have to get a perfect 'X'."
"Yes...." she said looking down at the wooden blocks she cut. Renka was determined to not let the frustration get to her. walking over to the next dummy she prepared again.
"Ah...before you try again, let me give you a tip." Sansu called over to her, as rain began to fall a little harder. "When you cut down, you don't need to have such a steep slope. Your cutting the whole way to the thigh. Bring it up a little to right above th hip. You can even curve the cut a little, so it isn't a straight line at the bottom, make a sort of hook shape. This curve is harder to cut in wood, but it is worth the effort to speed up the second attack."
"Alright...i'll try..." she mumbled before mentally preparing once more. Opening her eyes after a moment, she quickly performed the technique.

Three logs fell to the ground, the bottom two curved inwards, and the top to matching each other almost perfectly. The log that was still on the stick holding the dummy up was curved to look like two half circled were sawed out of it.
Stepping back, renka looked at her handiwork, huffing a little. Then a clapping sound came to her ears and she looked at her tutor.
"Good job! that looks great! you've done a great job at an advanced thrust attack! do you want to take a break and dry off?" he suggested, pointing to the locker room provided for the shinobi who came to the field to train.
"Umm...sure...i'd like to change my clothes.." She said, while wiping off her muddy sword.
The two walked to the locker rooms, and soon arrived. Renka stood under the porch roof, while Sansu went to go get some hot tea.
She sat down and watched the rain plashing into puddles that had formed all over the field.
He came back with the tea, and a fresh pair of clothes for her to wear. It was a white training Gi, but she didn't mind. and the two sat and drank tea after Renka changed into the dry clothing.

Drago looked and he approached Hidden Cloud. He sighed as he walked up to the city and he started to get the wierd looks of the twon people. He adjusted his glasses and sighed as he looked and jumped in the air as he saw a sword come his way. IT get stuck in a building and alot of sparks came out of it.
Drago siad as looked down at the guy. His eyebrows went up and he looked at him.
"I see you own the demon claw. That is intresting you need to learn some techinques from me."
Sinobi Gisa was Drago's new teacher's name. He tried to kill him but that was alright. Every master he had tried to kill him one day or another. But this techinque transfering chakra threw a weapon to get an eletrical spark was something cool. IT was like the transperant metal techinque but with lightning. Drago looked and he nodded as he already knew the basics of the attack. He started to channel his chakra threw his Demon Claw. He looked but doing this techinque would require something different more of his own chakra sparking going faster than before. Gisa looked at him.
"You can do it..."

Drago looked and his chakra was spinning faster than ever. The chakra was going surging threw his hand even faster into his Demon claw. He swung his arm quickly into a tree. His hand hit the tree and it did nothing. He sighed slowly as he looked and drew his hand back out. Gasi looked at him.
"Drago you have to keept the flow going...You had it but once your hand hit the tree the current stopped. Never stop it!"
The rain was letting up as Sansu finished his tea and stood. Back to work, i have a lot to still teach you." and with that the man walked back out heading towards the now broken dummies.
Renka gulped down the last of her tea and ran jumped to her feet. Grabbing her swrod which was laying beside her, she chased after him. While she ran, she slung the sheath over her shoulder. She soon caught up to him.
He stood there with his own sword in it's sheath, and looked at her. "For a change of pace, i'm going to teach you a technique that does not use your sword. The wind blade is a sword substitute, in those rare cases when you cannot get ahold of your weapon." He held his hands up in the first hand seal "Now, you perform these seals." He shows her the seals in slow motion, "And after that, you say the words 'Blade of Wind'," and with that, a great gust of wind swept by them, and attached to his wrist was a barely visible line signifying the nearly transparent blade. "This is much more difficult than the other techniques, but i'm confident you can do this." He was purposefully avoiding the Demonic sword technique, because though it was easier to learn, it was much more harmful, as only those with jealous and wicked hearts can use the technique to it's fullest.
Nodding, Renka held out her hands and began to perform the seals. "Blade of wind." She stated, but all that came forth was a slight breeze.
