Name: Kagetaiyo

Village: Noharagakure

Leader: N/A, although the Shadowspeaker of the main dojo would be the closest thing to it.

Fighting Style: The Kagetaiyo focus primarily on taijutsu and stealth, as show in their unique fighting style; Light of the Shadowsun [Kagetaiyo no Hikari]. In battle they alternate between stealth and a vicious frontal assault. Their training focuses on the duality of their soul, and this comes through in their tactics. Many of their abilities shift between light and dark effects. Thus, they might lurk in the shadows to take advantage of darkness abilities, then leap into the fray to bathe their opponents in avenging light. As the shadow returns they slip away to start the process again. While they will also use ninjutsu and genjutsu this will typically be to augment their melee-centric abilities.

Description: Kagetaiyo shinobi rely only upon themselves. Some of them long for the companionship of good, reliable friends and join with other shinobi in teams. However, the Kagetaiyo rarely develop deep friendships. Most Kagetaiyo adopt new names to reflect the path they walk, which they choose themselves once they begin training to unlock their bloodline. The shinobi uses this name when dealing with others, but sometimes when they forms a particularly close bond with an ally they might share their birth name. This act shows deep trust and faith. To a Kagetaiyo their old name represents the turmoil that raged within them before they learned to control their dark side. In essence a shinobi is giving their companion the name of the dark twin that resides within their soul. Should a Kagetaiyo overextend their powers and fall into darkness, the creature that arises in their place typically uses their birth name.

There is no predominant uniform or body type that dominates the clan, although shinobi of this heritage tend to have a more wiry build. An oddity among the clans of the various villages, the Kagetaiyo do not actually have a structured leadership. There is no clan head, no hierarchy that controls them. The closest thing to a central hub for the Kagetaiyo are their dojo's, with the main dojo hidden deep in the darkest part of the swamps where it is said no light has struck the ground for centuries. Each Kagetaiyo travels to this dojo at least once in their lifetime to receive training from the clan elders on how to control their bloodline, but from that point onward they are on their own.

Once they have completed their training and left the Kagetaiyo enclave where they learned the clan's secrets they can expect little contact with other Kagetaiyo outside of perhaps their immediate family, unless they are called upon to defend their village. The process of unlocking their bloodline forces them to look at the worst parts of their soul without flinching. Although the shinobi of this clan are strong enough to endure such trials, few wish to be reminded of them. Kagetaiyo dojos are usually austere, isolated places with the ambience of a graveyard or a tomb. Only the Shadowspeaker, the dojo's head trainer and master dwells there on a permanent basis. The Kagetaiyo seek a Shadowspeaker's advice only under the most pressing circumstances.

All Kagetaiyo walk the line between good and evil. They have seen the darkness that lurks within their own hearts, and they know that if darkness resides in themselves it must dwell in every mortal's heart. They are naturally suspicious of others and prone to seek out hidden threats. Even while sitting in the midst of their companions in the warmest and welcoming of environments, they feel the darkness clawing at their soul and see the lurking evil that waits in the hearts of all creatures.

Bloodline: Darkness of the Shadowsun [Kagetaiyo no Yami]

Special Ability: Gain Inton and Yanton for free. No other advanced elements other than Inmyouton may be acquired. Additionally, ninjutsu that utilise an element not on this list cost 10% more.

Clan/Organization Jutsu: TBA

Background: The Kagetaiyo are a reclusive clan with a long history that few, if any, truly understand. Founded by a reformed rogue who had formerly fallen into darkness, he taught his descendants to find power in balance. Historically the Kagetaiyo have been martial artists who studied the balance between good and evil, light and dark. They were a study in contrasts. They used dark energies to drain their foe's live, but then turned around and used the power of light to lend that stolen strength to an ally. The first Kagetaiyo argued that denying, rather than accepting, one's base impulses would be the same as refusing to use one's left arm.

Due greatly to the fact that the journey towards unlocking the powers of their bloodline is very much a personal fight to overcome their own darkness, as far back as any records can show the clan has always been focused on the individual. No one member can walk the path for another. They must strive to attain balance, and then maintain it for the rest of their lives. When Noharagakure first formed only parts of the clan directly joined, and it was almost a full decade before all the various scattered members were made official shinobi. With almost everyone in the clan viewing the creation of the hidden village as being inherently good they set their talents towards making it as secure as possible.

The era following the creation of the village saw many of the clan's dojo's relocated to key strategic locations around the hidden village in the swamps. While no large garrison was ever posted there, with the Shadowspeaker being the only permanent member, thanks to the clan's communication network many threats to the village were thwarted before they had any ability to pick up steam. Like shadows the Kagetaiyo would move through the swamps, striking without warning and disappearing with the same frightening speed. Sadly, due to the very nature of the clan few other than the Sawakage would ever know about the efforts of these proud people throughout the years.
