| Clan Name: Akage
Village: Hidden Leaf
Bloodline Technique: Taiyouten Jisei (Sunspot Magnetism)
Description: Much like their cousins the Aoike, the Akage’s bloodline is slightly strange when compared to a normal bloodline. The source of their bloodline is incredibly similar but still different – even if only to the slightest degree.
First we will start with the very vague and little quirks of the bloodline, not the true potential of the bloodline or how it functions. First off the shinobi of the Akage family exhibit a strange glow like the Aoike family. The difference is quite astounding though, for you see, the Aoike families glow is produced by the reflection of light and it comes off as cold and eerie. The Akage family glow is produced by their body and it seems far warmer, far friendlier. It looks golden almost, like their body is producing very faded beams of sunlight. The glow seems to attract people as it seems to comfort them, most people would describe it as something that they just find genuinely alluring. What this does other than make people like being around them is it produces its own glow when in dark places. While it makes it nearly impossible for the shinobi to actually sneak around it means that dark places are never quite that dark.
Next is the actual true ability itself. The Akage release a constant pulse of chakra that is similar to the Aoike family but the effects they create are so different that it is amazing. The Akage’s body is able to produce something that can be compared to a solar sun spot in a certain radius. Now of course the actually magnetism produced by the body is no where near as dangerous or deadly as that of the sun, if that was the case the Akage might end up melting himself and probably part of the plant. Instead it decreases the actually power of the sun spots to a much more manageable level. When the bloodline is activated (Unlike the Aoike they can turn their bloodline on and off) a sort of bubble expands from the body encompassing a certain radius. The bubble seems to amplify the light inside of it causing a single ray of light to increase by about five times in intensity but that isn’t the real trick. The real idea behind the bloodline is that those caught inside are affected by an invisible magnetic field, such as that produced by a sunspot, that hinders their capabilities to perform jutsu. The magnetic field “clogs” and “interrupts” the chakra flow as it tries to leave the enemy’s body. (Also affects allies) This means that depending on the rank or the type of field released it may increase the amount of chakra a technique requires to perform or the concentration that one may require.
They also seem to have the ability to produce sun based ninjutsu.
Clan Elements: Fire and Lightning
Clan History:When the sun and moon collide there shall be only darkness.
Harmony, it was suppose to be a utopia, and at first it was. They existed together in peace, they were not two separate entities but rather a single being, they were known as the Ankokuki. There was no Aoike or no Akage, no red or blue, no sun or moon, they were one in the same… no, instead they were the eclipse. They lived on their own, on the border of leaf and the ocean that separated it from mist so that they could lend their talents to both countries. Towering spirals of radiant and glowing stone reached towards the sky, one half of the towers yellow one half gray, their home was one that demanded respect.
So for a time they lived together, the ones with blue hair and the ones with red hair. They formed a makeshift government, a democracy of sorts where ever male member would be allowed to place a vote if they desired so. They worked with one another forming odd jutsu that focused not on their individual powers but a combination of their unique techniques. Their goal was simple, to serve for the greater benefit of both countries, to act as a conduit of peace between both of the nations. Things didn’t remain this way forever though, how could they? With such a free form government things within the confines of the clan soon blackened to the point of corruption. Nothing was what it seemed, secret deals, conspiracies, bribes, but that was not the worst. In fact, what was the worst was the rivalry and prejudice forming between some of the family members, they discriminated against each other. Those of red hair despised those of blue hair and vice versa, they started to detest each other. Soon they started plotting each other, the prosperity they brought to the land fell to pieces and the era of the Ankokuki had ended.
On the outside though, it was well known that both of the villages felt a jealously towards the villages. They took this jealously and turned it into rage; they did not conspire with each other but rather separately planned an invasion on their miniature village. It was only a coincidence that their planned invasion ended up being planned on the same exact day, but how the next step happened no one knows for sure. You see, each half of the clan claimed their own names, they crafted their own signs, they even stopped using their jutsu in synchrony. They turned on each other for the red haired, now named the Akage, felt that they were superior to the blue haired, now known as the Aoike. It would be easy to imagine that the villages took this advantage and used it for their own gain. You see, each village approached the leader of either faction with an offer. It was simple; they offered them a place in their respective village if they would help them destroy the other half of their clan. In the end it would seem to work for both of them but it only truly helped the villages. The harmony of peace throughout both of the villages was shattered as both of them accepted the offer.
They choose to attack at night, when the Akage where at their weakest. The mist shinobi, who had allied with the Aoike infiltrated the base with ease in three groups of five. Fifteen mist nin and up to thirty Aoike snuck to the center of the clan town before lighting fire to everything in sight. It wasn’t long before backup was called, an equal number of leaf and Akage members fought back, the battle itself lasted all night.
By the end of it the village was nothing more than a smoking pile of ash and all of the mist and leaf shinobi laid dead or dying upon the ground. Only a few of each of the clan survived, and they themselves retreated to their “new village”.
Even now that rivalry still burns with a passion, the Akage and the Aoike still hold that grudge kindled centauries ago.
The Akage set up in leaf, they too were allowed to recreate their own housing. Unlike the Aoike however, they choose to keep their democratic policy with a slight change. Instead, the house was split up into two powers, the elders and the sun. The sun is simply a single person chosen at birth because of a single attribute that is destined to become the "leader" of the clan.
Clan Customs and Heritage:
Clan Appearance: Akage members are often considered conceded because of their views about themselves, the sad thing is that they are kind of right. Looking upon an Akage member often shows the peak of physical perfection although the same could not be said about their personality. The members normally stand over six feet and weigh a solid 170 pounds at the very least. They release a radiant glow that only adds to their physical appeal, the light can only be considered alluring. The members often have sky blue eyes but can have green or a light shade of orange. Almost every member has a head of orange hair.
Once every several generations a new leader is born and his image is vastly different when compared to his clan mates. Instead of the normal orange hair the members often have they come with a bright shade of blue. The sole reason that the member is given the spot of the sun is because they are also born with the bloodline without having to go through a ritual to activate it.
Clan Hierarchy: As stated above the Akage divide their running body into two separate houses. The elders and the sun. The elders consist of ten members from the Akage clan that are at least forty years old and have reached the third step of the Taiyouten Jisei. The sun is a single member chosen once every two generations and you can see why above.
Decisions are brought up between the board and votes are taken to reach a conclusion about the problem. The sun holds one half the votes and the elder the other half... if a problem cannot be solved a single jounin ranked member may be brought in to place a vote and end the dispute.
Clan Festivals and Holidays: The Akage members only have one festival,
the Kyokujitsu (Rising Sun). This is held every time a new member unlocks their bloodline ability. Unlocking the bloodline ability happens after the member becomes a genin (Meaning that the clan member does not start with it if they pick genin and have to rp a thread to get it) because the chakra released from their inner chakra coil messes with the body. It causes the clan member to develop a high fever and a severe rash upon several other symptoms that normally involves lighting things on fire and causing very bright lights. Members usually spend up to two days in this state and are unable to take care of themselves while it happens.
After this the clan holds a feast in honor of the new member of the clan.
Clan Clothing: Oddly enough the clan doesn't care about what the member wears. It must contain two things though... the clan symbol placed on a visible piece of cloth and the colors must be very cheery and normally yellow, gold, white, or light blue.
Notes: When the two heads or future heads of the clan meet in combat a strange effect comes into play. If the sun is out the sky suddenly darkens and what seems like a shadow of the moon blocks out all light from touching the ground, only the artificial lights or the two glows of the clan members can be seen. If it is night out the moon is blocked by shadows as well. This doesn't effect jutsu itself though.
