Hyuga Clan

Post by Tetsuji on Tue Oct 24, 2017 10:27 am


Name: The Byakugan (白眼, White Eye)
History: The Hyūga Clan (日向一族, Hyūga Ichizoku) is one of the four noble clans of Konohagakure. The clan proudly passes down one of the "Three Great Dojutsu" known as the Byakugan and regards it as a treasure to be protected and kept secret within the clan at all costs. The clan itself volunteered itself to join forces with the Senju Clan and Uchiha Clan in the founding of the Hidden Leaf Village to help keep their ancient and sacred bloodline protected after the Warring States period. The clan itself has a rich and secretive history that involves various branch families of the house falling victim to the main family and their power; going as far to place curse seals on the foreheads of the branch families to both control them and protect their eyes from being stolen.
Requirements: -
Description: All members born into this clan possess the Byakugan, a kekkei genkai that gives them extended fields of vision and the ability to see through solid objects and even the chakra circulatory system, amongst other things. Those who are able to wield the byakugan have notably white eyes at all times and when the eye is activated, various veins appear around the eye itself. For the user to unlock the Byakugan is pretty general but has a few requirements, firstly, that they complete a training thread of 3000 words dedicated to unlocking the eyes. Though typically it is very difficult to unlock the eye itself and many members are pushed to their physical limits to do so.


-The Byakugan itself grants a user a very wide range of abilities and in terms of visual prowess, can totally outclass the Sharingan itself in its base form.

  • The first and most noted ability of the Byakugan is that while it is active it grants the user nearly 360 degree vision while it is active and allows the user to see through any physical obstacle in the path of their vision within range, leading it to be nicknamed the 'All Seeing White Eye' as well.
  • The Byakugan is also able to see chakra, however it is extremely advanced as it is able to see not only chakra flowing through a persons body but is able to see the chakra pathways of that person in extreme detail including their tenketsu and the chakra pathways themselves. This ability is so advanced that the Byakugan can see through chakra itself to that which is behind it though there are some barriers that can distort (not block) the vision of the Byakugan.


Beyond that the Byakugan has a limited range of sight that can be trained up after the eye is unlocked that grants the user even more perceptive powers than its base form. Listed are the distances the eyes can see naturally (un-enhanced by jutsu):

  • Base level: The Byakugan untrained is able to see in a 25 meter radius.
  • First level: The Byakugan can be trained to this level at the cost of an additional 1000 words and is able to see up to 50 meters in radius.
  • Second level: The Byakugan can be trained to this level at the cost of an additional 2000 words and is able to see up to 100 meters in radius.
  • Third level: The Byakugan can be trained to this level at the cost of an additionl 3000 words and is able to see up to 200 meters in radius.


Members of this clan also possess the unique ability to expel chakra from any of the tenketsu in their body. This, combined with their Byakugan allows the user to use a unique form of Taijutsu called 'The Gentle Fist' where the user fires off blasts of chakra from their hand/body at their opponents upon a hit and into the opponents tenketsu. This can let the hyuga block the specific chakra point and stop the chakra flow from that point or even speed it up and results in their opponent struggling or even losing their ability to mold/flow chakra around their body depending on the end effect of the jutsu. To utilize the effect of this taijutsu style it must be incorporated directly into a jutsu with the number of points in its effect (as well as the number of effects) to determine how severe the chakra blockage/increase itself is and how far the effect actually goes.

Drawbacks:
-The Byakugan has one notable weakness while active and that is a complete blindspot just above the thoracic vertebra and on the back of their necks. In this point the Byakugan user is not able to see anything and it is truly a complete blind spot to the user regardless of enhancing the eyes or not.
-The Byakugan's biggest drawback is that the eyes must be trained and those that refuse to do so are more susceptible to strain on their eyes. Those at the base level can only maintain their byakugan for 4 posts at a time before needing a 1 post break. Those at first level can maintain it for 8 posts before needing a 2 post break, those at second level can maintain it for 12 posts before needing a 3 post break, and those at third level can maintain it indefinitely so as long as they have chakra.
-When the Byakugan is not active the user takes a -50 passive stat debuff to their perception state due to the reliance on their eyes in perceiving their environments.
-Due to their reliance on the gentle fist style, the Hyuga bloodline tends to not be as physically strong and must take the Weak trait without balancing it with a positive trait.
Code:

[b]Name:[/b] Weak
[b]Type:[/b] Negative
[b]Description:[/b] Someone with this trait is naturally Weak, and has a hard time building muscle. As such they receive a passive debuff of -50 to their Strength, and a +20% WC to Strength training.

Bloodline Jutsu: -

Yes it is the byakugan, but I don't like the fact that absolutely nothing in the entire universe can block the site of it. Regardless of canonical evidence this simply doesn't work for balancing.

This, combined with their Byakugan allows the user to use a unique form of Taijutsu called 'The Gentle Fist' where the user fires off small blasts of chakra at their upon upon a hit and into the opponents tenketsu. This can let the hyuga block the specific chakra point and stop the chakra flow from that point or even speed it up and results in their opponent struggling or even losing their ability to mold/flow chakra around their body.

What.... does this do? At the moment it's flavor text, give this some sort of mechanical benefit, like the ability to apply for Gentle Fist techniques, which instead of dealing direct damage to a target move chakra from their pool/disable their ability to use chakra for a certain number of posts/paralyses and stun. If you really wanted (And I recommend you do this for the sake of balance, and for the fact that it makes the gentle fist worth while and usable.) you could entirely rewrite the current jutsu damage scale specifically for Gentle Fist techniques, detail what each point of damage gets you as far as chakra reduction and paralysation.

-Swapped the image.

-I don't know what you want me to do about that? That was the canon definition and if you want me to take away what the byakugan did explicitly then we break a lot of precedent...

-Also, this is not flavor text. The ability to fire chakra directly from tenketsu allows a Hyuga to easily do things like Gentle Fist: Rotation. Beyond that, the ability to close and force open chakra points is incredibly powerful but should be limited to the effect of the jutsu itself and is beyond the scope for the bloodline. I can add a mark to replace damage with chakra limitations (as a measure for effects rather than damage) but I still don't think it's worth it in the bloodline itself given the vague and variable definition and nature to chakra molding/the chakra system

I would like to go on record says that I agree with Chris insofar as being able to see through everything. That's kind of its thing. We can't take that away and take ourselves seriously in my opinion.

As for the second thing Ash brought up, perhaps we can mention that this ability can be used in jutsu specifically so that people don't think every single punch will block chakra points. If they want to block chakra points, then they have to expend chakra as is canon.

Otherwise I'm cool with it.

-The manga/anime or wikipedia article your reading is likely being excessive. and over the top, and it's besides the point because BALANCE is more important. point being that you should never guarantee something is 100% effective. Furthermore what kind of precedent would we be setting? that we aren't upholding canon 100%, and will sway in the favor of balance over canon? what a horrible precedent to be set. Also, it's already been set.

-This is flavour text. It doesn't do anything mechincal at all. Ifyou want people to be able to passive shoot chakra out of their hands, then give a range and power for it. If you want people to be able to apply for Juken Techniques then specifically give them that power. as of the moment this doesn't do anything at all. There is 0 mechanics here. You need to specifically state what this does, and how. Give percision not just arbitrary "you can shoot chakra out of your hands and stop peoples chakra". How do they stop people's chakra? What sort of scale does it depend on. do they need chakra to do this or is it a passive benefit? With the specifics of mechanics it's essentially omnipotent (in that I can just walk up to you and jab you once or twice and shut down all of your chakra completely, as well as shoot as massively large blasts of chakra from my hands with untold power at no chakra cost to myself) or it does nothing besides sit there and provide flavor text, and given that there's no mechanical aspect to it, I as a mod in combat situations will lean in the favor of the latter, not the former.
