    [General] Clans

    Post  Ritsukou on Wed Dec 08, 2010 6:14 pm



    A clan (Ichizoku; Literally meaning "family"), in the loosest sense of the term, refers to a family or group of shinobi who form a basic unit of a shinobi village. Majority of these clans were known to have started out as mercenary military forces even before the First Great Shinobi World War. The Senju clan and Uchiha clan were the first known clans to have agreed to settle and form a shinobi village, facilitated by creating agreements with the daimyo of the land they inhabit. Many clans would follow the example of the Senju and the Uchiha, later establishing the Five Great Shinobi Countries as they are known today.

    Membership in a clan is usually determined by blood relations and genetics, which is vital in the usage of Kekkei Genkai and Hidden jutsu. These attributes and abilities made many clans feared and renowned throughout many villages. While clans may be composed of many individuals and extended families (such as the Kaguya and the Hyuuga), many clans mentioned and seen in the series were somewhat limited to a nuclear family.

    The Aburame clan (Aburame Ichizoku) is a clan characterized by their use of insects as weapons. The insects live in symbiosis within the body of the shinobi. At birth, members of this clan are offered to a special breed of insects called kikaichuu as a nest, residing just under their host's skin.

    The Fuuma clan (Fuuma Ichizoku) is a renowned ninja clan, famous in at least Amegakure and the Land of Fire. It is unknown where they hail from.
    They are well-known as an aggressive clan and fight using their characteristic giant Fuuma Shuriken; a large, four-bladed weapon said to possess pre-eminent sharpness.

    This unnamed clan lived in the Land of Water. Some time ago, the country was in the midst of a civil war. In this war, different sides battled each other using ninja, some of whom possessed kekkei genkai. After the war ended, memories of the horrific battles still lingered in the minds of the people, causing wide-spread persecutions against those with kekkei genkai. Because of this, Haku's clan, whose members carried the Ice Release kekkei genkai, went into hiding.

    The Hyuuga clan (Hyuuga Ichizoku) is one of the oldest and most powerful clans in Konohagakure. All members born into the family possess the Byakugan, a kekkei genkai that gives them extended fields of vision and the ability to see the chakra circulatory system.

    The Inuzuka clan (Inuzuka Ichizoku) or Inuzuka family (Inuzuka-ke) is known for their use of ninken as fighting companions. Clan members are apparently given their own canine partner or partners when they reach a certain age.



    Lord/Lady -

    The Kaguya clan (Kaguya Ichizoku) is a now extinct clan, known to have been very barbaric. Select few, namely Kimimaro, possessed the kekkei genkai Shikotsumyaku; this ability was so powerful that even the war-loving Kaguya clan feared it. With the exception of Kimimaro, the clan was killed off when attacking Kirigakure in a failed attempt to show off their ferocity. The clan was very savage and had no tactics when going to battle, and refused to back down even when surrounded and completely outmatched, preferring to fight to the death for fun.



    Lord/Lady -

    The Nara clan (Nara Ichizoku) or Nara family (Nara-ke) is known for their manipulation of shadows and tending of deer, which graze in a large area of Nara clan forest.

Among the medicine described in this book are the secret pills used by the Akimichi clan.

    Lord/Lady -

    The Uzumaki clan (Uzumaki Ichizoku) was a prominent clan in Uzushiogakure. They were distant relatives of the Senju clan and thus both clans were on good terms; an alliance that extended onto their Hidden Villages - Konohagakure and Uzushiogakure.
    The shinobi of Konoha integrated Uzushiogakure's symbol onto their uniforms and flak jackets as well as on the shoulders of their uniforms as a sign of friendship and goodwill between the two villages, and continue to do so to this day, in memory of their friendship even years after Uzushiogakure's destruction.
