Keiko graduated and finally got her village's headband as a mark of her becoming a genin. The shape of it was of a half circle at the base with several lines emanating from it, like rays of the sun casting its light out. She decided to change the cloth to a light purple color, almost like lilac, to match her usual outfit. The girl didn't wear it on her person where it was visible just yet as she has not yet decided where to place it on her person. However, it was a mark of accomplishment that she didn't take too lightly either.

When she became a kunoichi of the genin rank, the Kaguya girl headed to the library and accessed the next level of books now available to her. This included some of the jutsu known to genin like the Ki Nobori and the Suimen techniques that enables one to either walk on vertical surfaces or even on water. Extremely interested in learning these new basic jutsu before she would officially be taught, she took these few books with her and checked them out.

She headed towards the rivers outside Akarigakure that had a lot of trees and settled in a good comfortable looking spot. No 'Akuma' around, no visible dangers, and no distractions to get her attention anywhere else. Time to start training.

Ki Nobori - Tree Walking

[1] The Chakra Cost of the jutsu in question is halved. Any further reductions in chakra cost are applied after this halving occurs. - 3 Posts
[12] This jutsu is superior to a similar jutsu, assuming all other things are equal. - 3 Posts

Total: 7 Posts


The first thing on her list to learn was the Ki Nobori technique. Keiko sat down at opened up her book and read about it. About ten minutes later, she gleaned as much as she could from it. The user would apply a specific amount of chakra to their feet and adhere to the surface, climbing up the vertical wall as if they were simply walking.

If the stream of chakra is too weak, the user will lose their footing on the tree and fall off. If it is too strong, the user will be pushed away from the tree, causing the tree to break around the point of contact and the user will fall.

Now, what did she want to accomplish with this training? Aside from learning how to actually use it, Keiko wanted to try to lower her chakra output on the technique as well as lower the amount of concentration needed to perform the technique. She wanted to make it as if she could do it unconsciously without any effort.

Time to get to work. She placed the book down and fiddled with her feet, trying to understand the concept in her mind before she actually applied it. Keiko stepped up to one of the trees nearby and sent a bit of chakra into her feet, focusing on making it stick. She then jumped up and planted her feet to the trunk of the tree. It felt like it would stick..

-and then she fell. Falling down on her derrière, Keiko rubbed it tenderly. Maybe she should have just placed her foot onto the trunk and shift weight onto it instead of jumping onto it like an eager teenager?

Keiko focused chakra into her feet again and this time carefully placed her foot onto the tree. Slowly, one at a time, she shifted weight onto her right foot and tested its 'sticky' properties. The girl would adjust her output of chakra every time, slowly trying to figure out the exact amount and concentration needed to perform it correctly.

Fifteen minutes would pass by in a breeze. By this time, Keiko was able to place her foot onto the bark of the tree and remain on said tree with both feet. The only issue now was gravity. Even if she was defying it in a way with using her chakra on her feet, her lower body, stomach, chest, and head were all affected. She placed both of her hands on her stomach and her chest, the aching feeling of muscles that haven't been used often affecting her Kinobori training. She released her chakra when she was at the base of the tree, pushing off the bark to land on her feet.

Keiko laid down on the floor next to the tree, rubbing her stomach gingerly. Break time. She sat up and crawled to her small pack on all fours, eager to see what she had for lunch today. The girl packed a small bento box filled with goodies.

Split into two trays, the left side was filled with white rice sprinkled with black sesame seeds, an umeboshi, and small slices of beef. The right was more colorful, with pickled vegetables that included cabbage and carrots, sliced scrambled eggs that was made with green onions, small sausages, and a red tomato.

The girl rubbed her nose and smiled. She had made four of these bento boxes, one for each of her parents and her little brother whom she doted upon quite a lot. Keiko opened her own box and pulled out a pair of chopsticks and proceeded to eat.

It was a wonder how no matter how much she ate, (and she ate a lot, A LOT), she didn't seem to gain much fat in bad places. Instead it was slowly being converted to muscle for her entire body as well as fat for specific places in her upper body and her lower body. Indeed, she was slowly becoming more of a woman than a year ago. With it came the downsides.

Cramps in her stomach, Headaches happening every once in a while, and the monthly thingamajig. Alongside all of these were increased swings of moods. At some times she would be extremely happy and at others, she felt ready to rip the limbs off of a human. It wasn't soo drastic every month, just once in a blue moon.

Soon after, Keiko finished her food and placed her hands together, thanking the food and cleaning up after herself. Even if her stomach still ached because of the Tree Climbing practice, she would force herself to practice her technique once more. The Kaguya stood up and headed back to the tree.

Keiko activated the Tree Climbing technique by flipping through her handseals one by one, sending chakra down into the soles of her feet. Once done, she attacked the tree trunk and climbed steadily up. She could feel the strain in her stomach already while she was walking. Gravity wasn't on her side and after it felt like she wouldn't be able to tighten her muscles any longer to keep her 'upright', she pushed off the bark and landed on the grass a couple of meters away.

The Kaguya rubbed her stomach and the back of her neck at the same time, curious how other ninja were able to perform this technique. Of course, she hasn't seen anyone perform it correctly, so she had no idea if she was doing it correctly or not, but she assumed that she wasn't performing it the wrong way. An idea popped into her head and she went through the signs for the Fire Clone jutsu, summoning Keika the maid.

"Hai~!"

She proceeded to give her clone a hug. Of all the clones she has, Keika is the one most under appreciated for the work she does. She makes life easier by either helping out with the dirty stuff, or performing certain tasks that no one really wants to do. (And Keiko is talking about herself, there are things she doesn't really want to do too, okay?)

While explaining what she wanted to accomplish to her clone, Keiko expressed how hard it was to stay 'upright' against the tree. She couldn't help but feel like gravity is pushing her upper body down towards the ground while her legs remain planted on the tree's trunk. Keika the maid's suggestion was to envelop her entire body with chakra. That didn't make too much sense to the girl; sure, it would allow her whole body to be under the effect of Kinobori, but this jutsu was meant to be used only with the soles of her feet.

Thinking hard on the matter, the Kaguya sat down and pondered about her possible solutions. One was to train her body hard enough so that gravity could be considered 'negligible' to her. She already had the power to shoot fireballs and switch places with an object almost instantaneously. Why couldn't she walk up surfaces? There was another technique that allowed her to walk on water which was pretty neat, but this was the prerequisite to learning that technique.

Getting back onto her feet, Keiko decided to try once more until she got the hang of it or exhaustion pulls her back to the ground.

Seconds turned into minutes, and minutes turned into hours. Keiko didn't know why she had such a hard time performing this specific technique even if it was a genin basic, but the girl was improving a lot compared to a couple of hours ago. With just a mild bit of discomfort in her stomach region, she was now able to successfully stay on the bark of the tree for periods lasting half an hour without getting off.

Feeling like this was enough training to consider this technique viable for her, the Kaguya hopped off the side of the tree and landed deftly onto the dirt ground a few meters below. The concentration needed to keep herself on the tree itself was slowly dissipating; her mastery over it almost made her not even have to think about staying on the tree itself. Walls were of course a lot easier to stay onto because of its flat surface. Trees had grooves and nicks inside where she has to fill in the gaps with chakra to keep herself upright.

Keiko talked it over with her maid and finally concluded after a few conversations about Ki Nobori that she was able to put it in her past. The girl headed back to her home in the Kaguya clan grounds, hand in hand with Keika.

Suimen no Hokou - Water Surface Walking

[1] The Chakra Cost of the jutsu in question is halved. Any further reductions in chakra cost are applied after this halving occurs. - 3 Posts

Total: 3 Posts


It was about seven in the morning when Keiko of the Kaguya clan came waltzing into the Ninja Academy of Akarigakure. Maybe waltzing was the incorrect word, nor was strutting. Gracefully? Walking with poise? She was acting as if she was royalty when she headed into the training area, specifically towards the pond. In her hand was a single book that talked about genin basics. Just after the page that explained the Tree Climbing exercise was the Water Walking. While the two were very similar, Suimen required the user to consistently send out chakra and use the repelling force to walk on top of the unstable surface. The necessary amount of chakra to remain above the surface constantly changes because of the water's constantly changing matter.

After about ten minutes of reading the book trying to understand the concept behind it and such, the girl was ready to test it out for herself. She imagined that it was going to be a lot harder compared to Ki Nobori only because of how hard it was. Little did she know that without gravity to hold her back in a sense, it was going to be a lot easier than she initially thought.

Standing by the edge of the pool, she formed the seals for Suimen no Hokou. Keiko molded her chakra to the bottom of her feet and constantly released a flow of chakra so that she would be able to stand on the water. The girl was cautious as she placed her foot onto the water however; if she did the same thing she did when she first attempted the Ki Nobori technique, Keiko would fall straight into the water.

She felt the pond water give a bit of resistance when she placed her foot onto the liquidy surface. The Kaguya's foot sank in and she slowly pulled it back out so that it was on the water itself. She concentrated her attention to her feet and increased the flow of chakra so that there was as much resistance from the water as there would be if she was standing on solid ground. The process took only a couple minutes of fiddling with until she no longer sunk into the pond.

As a final test, Keiko put both of her feet onto the water, letting her full weight test itself. And success. She wasn't sinking, nor was she bobbing up and down. For all intents and purposes, the Kaguya was standing on water. This was a whole lot easier than Ki Nobori, she thought. A WHOLE lot easier.

Green eyes looked in the direction of the river outside of Akarigakure. How about water that was moving? As of now, she was able to stand on the pond with no difficulty because the water remained still. What if it was a moving current? That would mean that she would have to continuously adjust for chakra output to remain afloat. With a determined expression on her face, Keiko would begin to head out of the village and back to the grove of trees next to the river where she practiced Ki Nobori yesterday.

Once there, after observing no demons or people alike, Keiko sat by the river and dunked her feet into the moving current. The water was cold and refreshing, the sun was hot and soothing, and the girl was happy and content. She would proceed to stay in this particular position for a quarter of an hour, occasionally splashing her feet for a visual distraction.

When it came time to repeat her process for Suimen training, Keiko would stand up and form the seals once more, sending chakra down into the soles of her feet. She placed one of her feet onto the surface of the coursing river. The Kaguya quickly realized just how different the Water Walking jutsu was compared to the Tree Climbing.

Keiko accounted for the ever-changing current of the river as she released her chakra from her feet, adjusting it every single second so she would remain afloat. All of her concentration was directed at the water below so she would not sink in. To think that ninja are capable of performing such feats of supernatural abilities.

Half an hour passed. The sounds of the river and the frequent whistling of the wind passing through the trees were the only melodies being played by mother nature. By now, the Kaguya teenager was more or less able to remain on top of the river surface without much trouble. Concentration wise, she was able to perform various other things whilst standing and walking on the water.

Her control over her chakra was sufficient enough at this point in time. Now it was time to lessen the amount of chakra used to perform this technique. Keiko stepped out of the river and sat down where she was earlier, splishing and splashing her legs in and out of the water as she thought about how she was going to go about lessening her chakra.

Chakra control was an ability Keiko wanted and coveted. Naturally, everyone had some degree of control over their own chakra, but to actually fine tune it and be super precise with it? That took a lot of talent and skill. The Kaguya had the ability to go become a medical ninja, however, if she did, she would only be a regular member of the Med Corp. No one special, not someone to stand out in the crowd. Granted, she didn't want the popularity of an Idol like Sakura or their own Asakage but she did want to be recognized as someone important and skilled.

She did not want it because of her bloodline, but because of her own sweat, tears, and skills. With all these thoughts rummaging around in her mind, green eyes looked out into the river watching as it flowed in an eastern direction out towards the sea. If one looks very closely, they would be able to see the shape of Akuma in the far distance, their form heavily distorted by the heat and sand in the air. The Land of the Sun was just that, a gigantic desert that spanned a bit more than half of Seichi itself. It was only because of the river that it was able to supply the village with water and life. Everywhere else was dried up and wastelands.

Keiko stood up and activated Suimen once more, intent on mastering at least a little bit of this technique. She walked onto the river and faced west as she looked down at her feet, trying to lessen the amount of chakra she released while increasing the control she had to still remain afloat. Beads of sweat flowed down her tired body as her concentration over her Water Walking technique increased.

An hour passed. Keiko was on the brink of exhaustion. She hasn't had her daily snack breaks and everything else because.. she forgot. She almost always brings a small bento box and snacks every time she trained, but today was a bit different. The girl wondered why.

By this time, Suimen was a lot easier to perform as she grasped the nuances and little details. Everything crammed into her brain, the Kaguya was now able to perform Suimen with half the chakra than she originally started out with. Concentration was also a lot easier and she was able to jump and fight while on top of the water itself.

The silver-haired girl of fourteen stepped off and onto dry land, her clothes wet from the river itself and the sweat that she perspired. Now, to any horn dog people out there, she was sufficiently covered with enough clothes that even if she was 'wet', nothing was visible. Okay? Good. She's fourteen years old! COME ON!

Keiko would wait until her clothes were dry before heading back into the village and grabbing something to eat at the marketplace.

Kaihou - Open

Description: By forcing chakra into a locking mechanism and taking control of the chakra itself to manipulate the lock, almost any lock can be opened with this technique. The user can also lock any lock without a key by using this technique. This technique requires no handseals.
Limitations: This technique takes a few seconds to use.
Cost: 25


[Open]

New day. Keiko was inside the Ninja Academy in a specialized room meant to train a single particular technique. She felt like a thief doing such things, but it was something that was recommended for one to learn, so why not? It could come in handy down the line. The jutsu in question was simply called Kaihou, or Open, and was used to open or close any lock.

Scattered all around her on variously-sized tables were an equal amount of variously-sized chests and containers. Each one had a different kind of lock and there were no keys around to be found. The only way to open them was through chakra and this technique.

The Kaguya approached one of the chests closest to her and tried fiddling with the lock manually. It rattled around but otherwise remained closed. Time to try it out. She carefully inserted her chakra into the lock, forming a key that would be the right size and shape to open it with. Thirty seconds had gone by before she was successful in her attempt; the chest creaked open, revealing nothing but dust and a single bronze key. So the key was inside the chest. How ironic.

Keiko would close the chest and reinsert her chakra in the same shape and size into the locking mechanism, closing it in a faster pace compared to her half minute from before. Because she already knew what type of key she needed as well as having a physical representation to actually look at, closing the chest was a matter of seconds to the young girl.

She would proceed to the next chest with a rusty ol' lock on it and activate Kaihou once more, fishing for a different key combination using her chakra. This time, it only took twenty seconds compared to the first thirty, and the Kaguya felt like this jutsu was easy to comprehend and understand. The only thing she needed to focus on was the right size and shape of the key. Inside this chest was also the physical copy of the key. Without undoing her jutsu, she looked at her created chakra key vs the actual key and noticed minor differences in the grooves.

Taking note of the details, she placed the key back into the empty chest and locked it with her own chakra key, only taking a couple of seconds because she already had the key. She repeated this process a dozen times, getting better with each attempt until it only took at most ten seconds to open a chest. With the training done, she bid farewell to the room and headed to the next section to begin her next basic training.

Chikaku - Perception

Description: The user closes his or her eyes and focuses instead on one of their other senses. So long as the user does not open their eyes, their perception in regards to that single sense is doubled. This technique does not involve chakra.
Drawbacks: The user must remain still while using this technique.
Cost: -

[10] Remove a Limitation, Weakness or Drawback - 7 Posts

The next area was an outdoor location with several interesting things to note. This place was outfitted with several objects and sounds to focus in on for the training of this particular Genin basic: Chikaku, or perception. The five primary senses: Sight, Smell, Hearing, Taste, and Touch; these five senses are what gives us the illusion of reality. Genjutsu tends to distort these senses to give us a 'false' sense of reality. One can normally get away with using Kai to dispel the effect that is being used on your body, but they could also inflict pain to force them out of the illusion.

To her left were several plastic windmills facing a single direction with a single fan blowing air towards them to make them spin. It was the 'sound' portion of the training. A bit to the right of the windmills were several different types of flowers with varying smells. Far to the right were different types of objects like chopsticks, a rubber ball, a flower pot, and books, to name a few. In the middle of the field sat a table with snacks. Keiko smiled and approached the food, eager to train her jutsu to the best of its ability. (She's just a food junkie.)

Green orbs would be closed from the outside view, blocking any vision she normally relied upon. Instead she boosted her sense of taste to a high level than she usually would not have. Hands were outstretched in front of her reaching for the table. Once they've made contact with the solid surface, she crept closer and closer until her hands touched one of the packages. Keiko opened the bag and stuck her hand into it to take a single unknown object from it. It felt like a potato chip because of its shape and texture, but what was its taste?

"Ahh! Barbecue!"

She had a Barbeque-flavored potato chip. The taste was soo much more pronounced and infinitely better than she would normally get out of a snack like this. From now on, Keiko decided to eat her food with her eyes closed. The Kaguya nodded and took another chip from the bag, savoring the flavor in her mouth before reaching for another. A minute passed and the bag soon became empty.

Next victim~

She stretched out her hands to the sides until they came in contact with another object. The wrapping crinkled for this one as well, and the girl opened this one similarly to the other bag. Was it another bag of crisps? Something different?

This new bag was rather different compared to the Barbeque she had and the girl was taken aback at how much clashing there was between the two flavors. While the other one was tangy and robust, this one was fruity and woody.

"Strawberries?"

The saltiness was almost nonexistent in this bag of chips. It was like the strawberries were cut into slices and freeze-dried. By itself, they were pretty good and Keiko would have enjoyed them immensely, but after eating the BBQ chips beforehand, these tasted a bit weird.

She would continue eating random bags until her appetite was sated. All of the times, the flavors would stand out to her more strongly than before, and she would notice interesting notes and aromas from each item.

The Kaguya opened her eyes and blinked several times. Time for the next sense: smell. Keiko walked over to the flowers and sat down in front of them.

Several different species and colors of irises, daffodils, hydrangeas, lilies, and tulips were all arranged in flower pots. Keiko closed her eyes and cut off her sight in exchange for her sense of smell. Her nose began sniffing not once, twice, but thrice, taking in all kinds of scents and flavors emanating from the flowers.

The rightmost flower was most definitely the tulip with the pink petals. The base of the flower was honey-scented, warm and golden, with a faint note of musk on the pistils. She opened her eyes once to confirm what she smelled was correct and approached the tulip. She cupped the base of the flower in the palm of her hand and took a deep whiff of the petals. Honey with the dirty musk smell. Keiko closed her eyes and smiled, happy that she guessed correctly.

She did the same with the other flowers, trying to correctly guess each one's scent to the actual flower itself. This entire process took half an hour until she got all the scents matched with all the flowers. Keiko slowly stood up and walked over to the next set.
