Village: Hidden Mist
Technique: Optics
Jutsu Type(s): Genjutsu and Ninjutsu Mix


Simple, short explanation of the clan members; they all wear glasses.

Continuing into the technique, it is optics. The shinobi of this clan start off being able to produce virtual images using 'lenses...' or rather, using their glasses. Mixing the use of their glasses with their eyes, the 'upside-down' image in the back the shinobi's eye(s) is manifested through the glasses and can be made to do a number of techniques. One of these being the ability to, in a way, enhance clones. Mostly just the regular bunshin, considering from there, the other types of clones are not as virtual and are harder to give an enhancement to. In other uses, Optics can be used mostly for genjutsu. One technique allowing the shinobi to 'take on' the view of the target and make something as a tree ten yards away seem farther and will continue to slowly creep further as the opponent tries to get closer to it. This can effectively wear out the shinobi, making them easy prey, if used properly. Similarly, another technique can be used to enhance the shinobi using it's vision to magnify an object that is far out from the user.

Clan History:

Not exactly founded by anyone, but a small family had started it, like most others. They all had a fascination for glass, and were all ninja. They wanted to find some way to use glass for their jutsu, to maybe enhance it in some way...

The original intention of this clan was to create lenses and use those said lenses for their jutsu. However, that did not go too well as planned. The size was too big, originally made to fit in a circle around their back, and the lenses ended up flimsy, mainly because those who created it did not have the knowledge to work with such things. They then moved into creating glasses, smaller and easier to handle. One side being the convex lens, the other being concave. Closing one eye, leaving the other open, and using the desired technique from there, the clan seemed to be doing well.

That thought changed over the generations as the shinobi started to encounter eye problems. This was linked back to the glasses that were being made. Vision for each member was blurred and this ended up being a trait of each person and, like a curse, it ended up passed down to future generations. With the vision needing to be corrected, this was studied upon, and a new set of glasses was made that would correct vision as well as allow use of the jutsu. Shinobi no longer had to close one eye, and a new business started to rise. Members in this clan who knew how to make glasses starting banding together and made these glasses for others who needed their vision corrected.

Being a series of ups and downs, this clan finally is getting some attention from the Mist and some of the other villages as their products can reach every country. Of course, the glasses used just for correcting vision are just that. Those for the shinobi in their clan are specially designed for the jutsu and correction. As for how these are made, it is a closely guarded secret among the clan. Really the only ones who know are those who design the glasses, the clan leader, and of course, the Mizukage. Guarded for the purpose that others may use this same design for their shinobi who have need of vision correction, anyone who does know the secret, minus the Mizukage and Clan Leader, is watched by a high-ranked shinobi of the clan at all times, and killed on the spot if suspected of giving out information. The one suspected of gaining the information is killed as well.

Today, the clan does have their own techniques involving this, but never got around to them actually enhancing many elemental jutsu. Those that do get enhanced, it is not by much. Therefore, they have focused mainly on virtual and real images using a mix of genjutsu and ninjutsu.

Yamamoto Clan Technique Chart:
  • Concave Eye
    Type: Genjutsu
    Chakra: N/A
    As they begin, the shinobi can produce a virtual image. With the Concave Eye, they can do just that. Primarily, this is used to put the opponent into a trance and everything feels upside down to them. The target will be made to think they are in a dream and will not be able to wake themselves up. A fresh genin would not have too much experience holding this out and it does not last very long, a post at most. As the shinobi develops, this can be held out longer, Chuunin - three posts, and Jounin up - five or more posts.

  • Scope Range 1
    Type: Ninjutsu
    Chakra: 3,000
    The shinobi uses their glasses as a telescope lens to view the surroundings up to two miles away. However, they cannot hold that out for very long at this stage, but as they develop, it can be held longer.

  • Eyes of the Target Range 1
    Type: Genjutsu
    Chakra: 8,000
    This puts the target into a trance and the shinobi can 'enter the vision' of said target. They then focus the target onto one point, normally using the Convex Clone technique so that they will constantly try to go after it. For two posts, the target will chase after the clone or whatever object and it will creep further away instead of getting closer. That is unless they Kai out of it. This would tire the opponent, but not very much. The greatest effect it could have is a decrease in the targets speed.

  • Convex Eye
    Type: This kind both Genjutsu and Ninjutsu.
    Chakra: 15,000
    Again, the target is put into a trance. The vision given to them is exactly the same, but this time, everything appears smaller. This is in addition to getting that feeling of upside-downedness. Along with this, the shinobi can make another object in their sight appear in another place, right in front of the opponet, per se. It would be as real, but similar to a clone in that it would disapparate if hit. The effect of upside-downedness lasts for up to six posts depending on the rank: Genin cannot learn it; Chuunin - four; Jounin - six.

  • Scope Range 2
    Type: Ninjutsu
    Chakra: 20,000
    Again, using their glasses as a telescope lens, the user is able to view out five miles this time instead of two. This can be held for as long as the shinobi would like considering they should have had the practice to be able to do this.

  • Eyes of the Target Range 2
    Type: Genjutsu
    Chakra: 25,000
    First, Convex Eye being mastered would help this out a nice deal. Being a genjutsu technique, the Convex Eye can help to place a real image of a clone to help keep the target guessing as to Kai out or not. Outside of that, it is the same effect as Lens of the Target Range 1, but lasts for five posts. Again, unless it is Kai'd out of, or if the shinobi decides to cancel it themselves.

The history is a bit odd. I mean, why would any kage just let a bloodline leave their village? So you might want to either just pick a village or explain that more.

There are only three jutsu on this chart I have a problem with. First the two lightning ones. We went through this before on a previous chart, lightning going through your body would just mess you up.

Finally we have the so called Dark element. First of all it just looks like Gravity to me. Next, how does lightning and water make this? I just dont get how mixing lightning and water would make gravity.

Well, thats pretty much it.

I should be able to edit it Friday or Saturday. I will keep Dark, using the rainbow/prism theme-ish thing I have there. Gravity did inspire the effect, I will say, but I will more than likely change it and add another Nijime K stage. Lightning will obviously be changed, and the histories probably completely revamped.

I'll also fix that list thing before the actual techs if that helps. I wanted it to look a different way slightly, but it only worked in the preview. :/

Was this updated? If so I will cover it again.

Posted by: Kazuma May 8 2007, 12:47 PM
Nah. I'd have been sure to let you or the others know.

I'm looking at it and have grown unsatisfied with the current techniques. I might change them all.

I'll probably change how it all works. I have an idea in mind, but I am having trouble with it.

The History is giving me some trouble, but if I did change to my recent idea, I guess I could select a village.

I think I will temporarily give up on this, relieve some stress, then just make a third char and use it until I feel ready to finish this. If this could be left in the dark corners of Jiyuu, that would be fine.

Revised again...Decided to drop the original idea of the Yamamoto Clan and changed it from elementalists to lenses, or the best I could of it anyway.

Could you edit out the description to "Optics?"
