The Byakugan


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


The Byakugan ( Literally meaning "White Eye", meaning "All Seeing White Eye") is the dōjutsu kekkei genkai of the Hyūga clan. It is one of the Three Great Dōjutsu (San Daidōjutsu; Literally meaning "Three Great Eye Techniques"), along with the Sharingan and the Rinnegan.

Those who inherit the blood of this clan have almost featureless, white eyes. When the Byakugan is activated, the user's pupils become more distinct, and the veins near their temples bulge. It also appears that, unlike the other two great dōjutsu, all members of the clan possess it, and can use the kekkei genkai from birth, as opposed to needing to awaken or else, not inheriting it at all.

The Byakugan's abilities have left it highly coveted by the other villages, as evidenced by Kumogakure's attempt to steal it; an event which led up to what is known as the "Hyūga Affair". Ao of Kirigakure was able to obtain a single Byakugan from a Hyūga he defeated, and goes to great lengths to protect it. At the same time, Danzō Shimura went to equal lengths to retrieve or destroy it. Unlike a transplanted Sharingan, a transplanted Byakugan can be activated and deactivated at will.

The origins of the Byakugan are shrouded in mistery and remain unclear at this point. Although it has been hinted that it somehow predates or, more concretely, may be related to the origin of the Sharingan, its known that the Sharingan is the genetic inheretance of the Sage of Six Paths son who inhererited his fathers eyes, establishing the Sharingan as an imperfect version of the Rinnegan while the Byakugan hasn't been explained or fitted into that explanation and background. What is known, however, is that the Hyuuga clan, the barers of the Byakugan, are one of the oldest clans in Konoha, apparently one of the founding clans that were aligned with the Senju at the time of Konoha's founding.



Abilities of the Byakugan:

-a 360º field of vision, except for one blind spot at the back of the neck above the third thoracic vertebra.
-see through solid objects, and can use a degree of telescopic sight. The distance and the degree of telescopic sight varies with the users skill.
-see chakra, as well as the chakra circulation system inside the users body as well as others. It is from this particular ability that they are able to employ their ultimate attack style, the Gentle Fist.
-All Hyuugas have exceedingly high chakra control and increased agility, specially after mastering Gentle Fist.

Jyuuken | Gentle Fist



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Requirements:

-Only ones capable of this fight style are members of the Hyuuga Clan.
-In order to use one must have had at least one training session with a Hyuuga senior member or a sensei with the permission to teach Jyuuken.

Description:

The Gentle Fist style of combat is based on palm strikes, finger strikes and chakra blasts and generally aims to damage the body's Internal Chakra Pathway System that relies on the Huuga's clan abilities to see the chakra flow. User forcefully and with tremendous speed inserts a small amount of their own chakra into an opponent's chakra pathway system. This will either be done to cause immediate damage to the opponent's internal organs causing internal bleeding which may result to death or it will be done to divert and disturb the normal chakra flow of the opponent to prevent them form using any type of ninjutsu and genjutsu. Jyuuken is considered Hyuuga clan's signature move and cannot be copied or mimicked. While Jyuuken can be used in free form, the damage will never be enough to be fatal and cannot stop the chakra flow completely. The speed of gentle fist moves are higher than Strong Fist moves and the agility of the user is enough to out maneuveur most Taijutsu experts and most taijutsu moves but in general, Gentle Fist moves lack raw physical power that they exchange for speed and precision.

Byakugan Activation


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


To use the Byakugan and its abilities, the user must first activate it, an action that will cost a move. After the user has grown and attained full mastery over the KG and its abilities, the Dojutsu can be activated at will without spending a move, although the user will still need to post the activation technique for reference.

(Dōjutsu: Byakugan) Eye Technique: The All Seeing White Eye
Type: Supplementary
Rank: A-Rank
Range: Short-Long
Chakra: 30 (-5 per turn to keep active)
Damage: N/A
Description:
One of the Three Great Dōjutsu (San Daidōjutsu), the Byakugan is the kekkei genkai of the Hyuga clan. Bearers of this Dõjutsu have almost featureless white eyes. When the Byakugan is activated, the user's pupils become more distinct, and the veins near their temples bulge as the blood flow to their eyes is increased. While having the Byakugan deactivated, Hyuga ninjas have a normal eyesight and no special addition to their vision. While low rank Hyugas will need to perform a sequence of hand seals ( Horse → Tiger with lifting just index fingers → Boar with nearly straightened fingers → Hare → Rat → Dog → Horse → Dog → Hare → Rat → Boar with nearly straightened fingers → Snake with the right index finger lifted straight up) to activate their Byakugan, Hyuga masters will be able to do so without the need for any hand seals and even have it active passively for long periods of time. Once activated, the user gains access to all of the abilities the Byakugan bestows upon them. While, like other Dojutsu, its main ability is to see chakra and the chakra flow in sentient beings, the Byakugan adds a complete new detail and dimension to that ability. The user can not only see chakra and the chakra flow, but also the circulatory system and even the 361 tenketsu. Added to this ability, once activated the Byakugan grants the user a near perfect field of vision 360º around himself (up to long-range if he's a master). This field of vision has only one blind spot, slightly above the 3rd thoracic vertebrae and facing backwards but enables the user to actually even see his own chakra circulatory system and chakra flow, which explains why all Hyuugas are so adept and masterfull of precise chakra control. The last ability the Byakugan has is the ability to zoom in and out, focusing on specific things, piercing beyond matter and energy alike, as well as chakra. This specific ability allows the user to see pass most barriers as well as physical matter (like rock walls, ground, etc) but also energy, being able to focus beyond chakra that might be in front of them or other energies. The zooming ability is enhanced as the user becomes more adept at using his eyes and can even reach distances above 20kms away. Some Hyugas have shown a great awareness regarding agressiveness as well as killing intent, detecting such intentions and emotions from others with more ease than most.
Note: Activation spends a move from the users own move count but once the user reaches Sannin Rank and has gained mastery over Gentle Fist for 1 month, he can activate it passively without spending a move. Because of its low chakra cost to maintain, the user can keep it active throughout the whole fight as long as he has chakra and stamina to do so.
Note: Genjutsu that requires Eye Contact when used against a Byakugan user requires direct eye contact between enemy pupil and user's pupil
Note: Must be activated to use Gentle Fist (Jyuken)
Note: Cannot be blinded by matter, chakra, light or energy
Note: Its tracking abilities are similar to that of a 3 Tomoe Sharingan
