    [Character] Samurai


    Character Information: Samurai (侍) are the guardians and military power of the Land of Iron. Little is known about them, although Ōnoki indicates that any shinobi would be foolish to challenge the military of the Land of Iron which indicates that their skill and power are of high class that even ninja are wary of their talents. Their general is Mifune. The Land of Iron is the only power in the modern world which continues to use samurai, as Hanzō alluded to that in the past, even in his time they were being used less and less, being replaced by ninja, ninjutsu, and ninja villages. All of the samurai shown thus far have been seen wearing heavy plate-armour akin to traditional samurai. They also wear helmets with face masks that block poison from entering and have radios inside of them, with senior officers having horns on top of their helmets. Like real samurai, they are armed with swords. However, the number of blades worn by a single warrior is unusual, going as high as four. In battle, they have not been seen using more than two at a time.

    Abilities: Little is known about the abilities of the samurai even by shinobi, but they are primarily sword-users. It was shown that they are capable of utilizing chakra, apparently by channelling it through their swords. This allows them to extend the reach of their swords as well as attack at a distance by swinging them and releasing crescents of energy at their targets. The samurai have also shown form manipulation, as the chakra blades they form into many types, such as buzz-saws, broad swords, and axes. One of the forms of kenjutsu they use is Iaidō (居合道), due to the quick drawing and re-sheathing of the katana, it makes ninjutsu near useless since the hand seals can't be completed. The samurai can also use elemental chakra control through the use of Kenjutsu and taijutsu and other forms of their weapons that they wield.

    The Samurai Saber due to its chakra flow ability it is capable of aiding a samurai in fighting against ninjustu techniques equal to that of the samurai saber and thus helps them effectively fight against ninja as shown below the template of the samurai saber

    (Samurai Guntou no Jutsu) Samurai Sabre Technique
    Rank: A
    Type: Offensive
    Range: Short - Long
    Chakra cost: 30
    Damage points: 60
    Description: This technique is unique to samurai, which employs the concept of chakra flow techniques similar to the flying sparrow and Kusanagi: Chidori katana. Through the use of chakra flow the user channels their chakra through their swords his extends the reach and the cutting ability of the blade, and also allows the user to fire crescents of chakra whenever the blade is swung. This released chakra is capable of great destruction as shown from how it destroyed a stone pillar. The samurai have also shown the ability to use shape transformation, as they can form their chakra blades into giant buzz saws, broad swords, spiked shafts, and axes. This ability allows them to rely on smaller swords while retaining greater reach, damage, and surprise attacks as needed.(The technique is capable of countering Ninjutsu of A rank and below due to the chakra charge technique).
    Note: Can only be taught and used by a Samurai Bio

    Iaidō (居合道) is a samurai-skill where the user quick draws the blade extremely fast to strike, then re-sheathing it after every attack. The speed of the user is so fast that it prevents enemy shinobi from forming hand seals and thus ninjutsu, making it highly effective against ninja. Mifune is a master of this style, making him highly effective against ninja even of Hanzō's calibre.

    The Iaidō techniques effectiveness depends upon the users rank and thus the speed of the execution of the technique is increased via rank and techniques that may enhance a samurai's speed and ability to react. The Samurai is capable of using Iaidō to stop Ninja from performing hand seals onlly if the Ninja is of the same rank and below but cannot stop Higher ranked Ninja. This may only be performed within close combat and cannot be used from mid range to jump in and stop Hand seals.

    (Iaidō) - Art of Quick Draw and re-sheathing the sword
    Rank: A
    Type: Offensive, Defensive
    Range: Short
    Chakra cost: 30
    Damage points: 60
    Description: Iaidō is a form of kenjutsu where the user quick draws the blade extremely fast to strike, then re-sheathing it. This method prevents enemies from using hand seals, thus preventing them from using Ninjutsu making it highly effective against enemy ninja. General Mifune of the Land of Iron is a master of this style, making him highly effective against even ninja of caliber of Sasuke Uchiha and Hanzō the Salamander. (The speed of the technique is equivilant to that of the rank of the user)
    Note: Can only be used by Samurai biographies

    ~ To have a samurai biography they have to be either from the Land of iron or have gone to the land of iron and remained there and clearly show this within the biography. A Samurai may come from a clan but not be allowed to use the clans Ninjutsu abilities nor are they allowed to use clan abilities that do not require ninjutsu to activate such as doujutsu users

    ~A Samurai biography may not be permitted to use ninjutsu or genjutsu techniques as they cannot use hand seals, they may only use Kenjutsu and Taijutsu.
