Puppet name: Hydra
Puppet rank: C
Appearance: The "Hydra" puppet is many snake(or draconian) shaped heads made out of silk clothe, light bamboo for structural support, including light 1/2 inch wooden teeth lined into the mouth of the puppet head. The upper top 2 inch teeth canine teeth are hollowed out oak. The tips of the canine teeth are glued in place to loosely seal the holes. Each head is eight inches (8") in diameter. Each head is made from harden clothe and supported by thin lightweight bamboo frames.
Inside each head is a slot for placing in wire, clothe, or the wooden spinal vertebra frame that lets the user control the puppet from the inside. There are gears that operated inside the jawline to open and close the mouth. The amount of heads varies by preference and also the length of the wire, clothe, or wooden vertebra also varies by reapplication.
At the base of the vertebra is a large box measuring two square feet from which the "Hydra" extends from within. The appearance of the box is modified to fit the user's personal preference in the reapplication. The typical "box" frame is wooden, often sturdy, and shell-like to fit comfortably against the user's back. The "box" or "container" has multiple straps to allow it to be fastened to a person's shoulders, chest, and hips to allow the weight to be distributed evenly.
Strengths: Agile, lightweight,
Weaknesses: Easily damaged (Weak frame), higher concentration (cost 2x)
Specialties: Can be used with wire manipulation, various puppet jutsu, clothe manipulation.
Control of the the "Hydra" varies by type of manipulation used.
Wire manipulation allows for maximum control of the gears inside the head allowing the heads to "snap" closed quickly and hard but cannot hold more than five heads. Used for speed in comparison to other manipulation techniques. Each head has to have multiple wires attatched to be lifted due to Wire Manipulation's inneffective control.
Clothe Manipulation allows for mediocre control of the gears inside the head but can uphold the "Hydra Heads" better than wire manipulation. Best choice for agile movement.
Use with puppetry manipulation techniques of the vertebra colemn allows for poor control of the gears inside the head to make them "Snap" closed slowly and inneffective damage. The vertebra collume used with puppetry allows for a larger amount of "hydra" heads to be controlled. Movement is restricted.
Weapons/Devices: Has 2 inch long canine hollowed teeth. The tips of the teeth break 1 millimeter off the end to allow the hollow to be uncorked. Inside each head a very small set of gears and poles allow wires/clothe to wrap/attach to in order to be controlled.
Each head can be attatched to a wooden vertebra column made of use specifically compatable with puppet jutsus only.
