The Anei clan will do anything for Sato. They are fiercely loyal to the Kage and are willing to take any mission for the betterment of Sato, no matter how distasteful or demeaning. That is also how many of the ninja members have perished. They took suicide missions and died. Even the non-ninja members hold a special place in their hearts for Sato, often making themselves bankrupt because they cannot bear to charge anyone from Sato full prices. An Anei will be suspicious at first to those from other villages besides Sato, even if the village is allied to Sato. They like creating and bettering ninjutsu and genjutsu they have learned, and hold a special affinity for cats. The Aneis consider the creation of jutsu the greatest thing a ninja can do over the course of their career. The cats of the household are basically worshiped. The Anei clan uses the elements of nature, which they believe corresponds to the 4 cardinal directions as well as the 4 patron cats of clan lore: Tsunami of the North, Chouseki of the South, Shippuu of the West, and Tatsumaki of the East. The cats are considered to be embodiments of the elements of wind and water. The east and west are the swiftness and skill of wind, while the north and south embody the power of the tides. They combine to create some of the most powerful forces on earth, including hurricanes, water spouts, and tsunamis.
Even though most of the family members have left the shinobi path, the Anei are still fiercely loyal to their country and even subconsciously continue to help their home of Sato. To the merchants and diplomats it is the greatest reward to come home to their beautiful nation, bearing good news and prosperity. To the shinobi it is the pride of fighting for ones county and bettering it's future that drives them forward. Anei will do anything for their country and its people; the merchants are known to never be able to cope with charging full price to their fellow countrymen. However this loyalty will still emerge as the fanatic rage of their ancestors when someone or something insults Sato or displays disloyal behaviour, be it to a clan, a friend or a way of life. Trusting of a foreigner is also difficult, it's okay so long as the outsider obeys the customs and virtues the Anei believe in.While immensly loyal to those they do befriend, this judgemental nature of theirs brings difficulty at first.
A creative lot, all Anei use their mental gifts in some way or another but their strong minds tends to make them somewhat perfectionist with their creations, always striving for improvement. The bettering of one's self, one's friends and one's country being a principal virtue to the Anei. Teamwork is a great strength to them but in reality it seems people don't work together like they truly should, which is frustrating and illogical to the clan members.
While not being members of any particular religion, each Anei holds a place in his/her heart for cats. Nearly all families own a house cat and feline worship is near unanimous among the clan and they all display some cat like tendacies and personailty traits.
Food will be offered to strays and prayer at special shrines is a regular practice. The clan even holds a special day dedicated to cats.
The Bakuto clan is primarily a gambling clan. However, it is not unheard of for the members of the clan to become ninja. Though the gambling background has lead to the development of some odd jutsu.
Hebi clan members enjoy torturing others. The clan consists mostly of poison ninjas that have at least one poison that causes mental or physical torture to others when the poison goes into effect. The Hebi clan works with underground networks that have ties to both missing ninjas and other evil organizations, so they may inform Sato of incoming threats. At least those are the intentions on paper,their true intentions no oneknows.
Nests of mosquitoes, there bodies are. They posses the ability of generating double the amount of red blood corpuscles [RBC] that a normal human being produces normally. For that, they contracted with different species of mosquitoes to reside there bodies and feed on the iron and protein of their reach blood, and in return they have full control over these vicious insects and utilize them in battle.
Similar to the leader, the entire clan league believes in the morals of loyalty and the significance of blood relativity. They would reach extreme limits for there siblings, fellow colleagues, villagers and beloved ones.
Even though often they are considered the best tools of combat and war devices, they are rather ambitious internally. Looking up to the leader then the kage, there has been times were individuals of the Kabashira competed on those positions. An ultimate dream is to have one of them become Ooikage.
My fellow colleagues and family, our gifted abilities are ours, and ours alone. Enemies and intruders shall taste our torment, the agony that is us.
The members of the Ketsueki clan are all vampires, who struggle to survive in the world. Most of the members are as normal as it gets and try there best to blend in as much as possible.
Rumors and stories have been leaked but few are true, the really truth is that the Ketsueki vampires (or just vampires) can travel in sunlight but there eyes are sensitive. They did at one point feed or bite humans to calm their thirst for blood but that has long been stopped. The most common of the rumors was that vampire’s being able to turn others into vampires but that is completely and utterly a LIE!
Trying to harmonize the spirit of both the Nao and the Nylin while blooming in its own way, the Kimera walk a perilous line, in which any decision could bring their downfall; There uncomfortable position forces them to maintain the stealthy arts, that flourished in the Nao while protecting the animalistic path of the Nylin and standing in a balance the new culture, born from new blood running through the veins of the Kimera.
The Kurohoshi, though counted as one clan, has two parts to it. There is the Genjutsu Using Branch, more formally known as the Dark Walkers, and the Taijutsu Using Branch, more formally known as the Wind Walkers. Though they aren’t all specialists, each member of their respective Walker Section strive to better their Branch. But this is a generalized breakup of the clan.
There are many factions in this clan. The Information Seekers (Called the I.S.), The Shinobi, The Civilians, The Merchants, The Emissaries, and the Builders.
The Information Seekers are not relatively known to the outside world, only to those who are in the clan, or ears for the clan.
The Shinobi, the most known, are the ones that bring the Kurohoshi their glory and fame.
The Civilians are seen walking everywhere and anywhere, and are often the ones that go unseen because they are so common.
The Builders are the inventors of the clan and fall into two catergories here: Jutsu Builders and Accessory Builders. The Jutsu Builders only work for the clan creating jutsu, while the Accessory Builder will work for anyone for a fee, creating just about anything under the sun with the right blueprints.
The Emesarries are the peacemakers and ambassadors. But are cold and ruthless with their tongues. These people are usually breed just for this job, as this regulates who the clan accosiates them with.
Lastly the Merchants are the real money makers for the clan. They gather artifacts and will sell them to the highest bidders, as well as auction off the items that the Accessory Builders create.
The clan’s main purpose is to uphold what little understanding there is between the villages both minor and major. One of their time honored jobs is to eliminate people that are deemed a threat to peace. The clan is divided into 3 groups namely the Kizoku, Totei and the Shinzoku. There are only 12 Kizoku at any given time in any part of the world and there may be no more than 3 Kizoku per village so that there may be a balance in power. It is the Kizoku’s duty to actively enforce law on the populace of the villages whereas the Shinzoku are the minor branch (not in numbers) of the clan and do most of the real dirty work. Many Shinzoku usually end up as the village police force while some others become shinobi.
The Totei are 12 young children who are chosen to become the successors to the Kizoku in the event that they should die. Each Kizoku has a totei of his own, destined to replace him/her when the time comes. At a young age the chosen children are taken under the wing of a Kizoku who then teach them of the workings of the clan and how it is best run. They are also taught the various functions and methods of governance of their particular charges.
The totei are selected totally by the wish of the Kizoku, there is no hard and fast rule that the totei even have to be of the Mishima clan. The prospective totei are all monitored passively to find the most favorable candidate, the other candidates are kept in reserve lest the worst befall a totei in training. Usually the selected children are those that have experienced major upturns or hardships in their lives so that they are already familiar with the need for peace. Also there is no real age limit to a totei, while it is still favorable to have a young totei.
Members of this clan typically show an affinity for doton techniques, though several of the non-main branches have displayed other affinities of late. The main branch is the only true Ryuuko family. The rest are cousins and relatives that married in from other clans. Everyone in the clan is required to use wires from an early age, and many in the clan are masters of wire manipulation, trap-making, and strategy.
The Sumiyori clan is spread out amongst Frost and Water. They descend from a Sati noble clan, the Minowara, but most members are unaware of this history due to events which occurred during the reign of the Nidaime Ooikage. For the last two generations, the Sumiyori family have remained civilians for the most part, but the current generation has been encouraged to seek the path of the Shinobi, either by their elders or by the stirring of the very blood within their veins, the blood of an old Shinobi Clan.
Both males and females of the clan traditionally grow long hair, usually to the shoulder blades, although those males of the main family are required to grow their hair to waist length as a sign of their status. Sumiyori clansmen tend to be very attractive, though males lean towards a more effeminant sort of beauty, rather than masculine.
Members of the Sumiyori clan have gem colored eyes, vibrant greens, blues, purples, reds, oranges and yellows, as well as either very dark or very light colored hair. Pale skin and slender physique are another physical aspect of the clan.
All members of the Sumiyori clan are raised with the belief that family matters above all else. A member of the Sumiyori clan will always treat a relative as a family member, regardless of differences, such as social status. All members are equal within the family, barring the respect given to those higher in the clan’s hierarchy, such as the Clan Head or the Elder Council. All disagreements within the clan are kept within the family, to all non-members they show only a united front.
For those who don't know the clan, the Umeda clan stand for three things, to love the land and the plants, to love the village, and to love the people. The plants of the Sato region has helped the clan in numerous occasions. Their first leader had told them about the miracles of plants and that if you take care of the land, the land will take care of you. Knowing this, the clan would often take care of land all over Sato and all over Horizon when they go traveling. They would also educate the people about plants and how they could help people in everyday situations.
Loving the village is next, and just is important. Being proud of your village is something that the Umeda clan expects from everyone and tries to show that without making them look ridiculous or obnoxious. You must be proud of your village because that is where you live and whom you will work for. To not be proud will be like shunning the people and the kage of the village.
The final motto is to love that people. The people of the village is what makes the area so unique, physically, spiritually, and culturally. To love everyone is something that his hard and strenuous to do, but doing so will gain you love, trust, and pride. By helping people, the people will help you back.
The clan has a reputation for being honorable, intelligent, kind, and fierce.
