Re: Shadow Manipulation with Oasis Nara
First, our Noble Clan, is reknown for it's inteligance. It is true that most of our members have an extreamly high IQ, and we are exceptional tactitians and strategists. We also have a book with medicine recipies of high level. We are also tending deers in our forest, close to Konoha. Curently, the head of our clan is Shikaku-sama. Our Clan has good relations with the Akimichi and Yamanaka clans. We also have a tradition in creating teams with them, as well as a Sarutobi clan's member giving them earrings.

This, simingly useless part of our ability enables a second ability of our's: the merging of Shadows. When we merge our shadow with that of an other person, he/she is traped. If the shadow imitation technique is used, the opponet will be forced to "be" our shadow, meaning that they will imitate any movement the user does. Additionaly, it was shown that the shadow can also be used to grab items, if extended on a 3 dimentional scale (battle with Hidan). Other than that, we have found many ways to use our ability on a better scale, such as using flash bombs (to extend our shadow faster) or using it along with shuriken, to trap our opponet's movement. It seems that the efficacity of the shadow diminishes over time/chakra of the user, and it can also be resisted by stronger opponets (not completely). The shadow has a major weakness: It is unuasble in total darkness, as there will be no shadow created. The same goes under a too bright light source. Also, fire/lighting, if used corectly, can change the direction of the shadow, and even expand it. That can work either way (even by the opponet, to redirect the user's shadow).
The most famous character of our clan (manga-wise) is Shikamaru Nara, who is extreamly inteligent, but quite lazy sometimes, although he seems to have overcome his lazyness lately.
