Starfishes originate from a secret coral reef called Las Marianas. It lies in the deepest part of the world's oceans; The Mariana Trench in the arc of the Mariana Islands.
Starfish or sea stars are echinoderms belonging to the class Asteroidea. There are more than 1800 different species of sea star. Most sea stars are predators. Although starfish are invertebrates, they do have a kind of skeleton. The bodies of starfish are composed of calcium carbonate plates, known as 'ossicles'. These form the endoskeleton, which takes on a variety of forms such as spines and granules. Most starfish have five arms, called rays that come out from a center circle (disk). If a starfish has more than five rays, it will often have rays in multiples of five; there could be 10, 15, 20, or even 30 rays on one starfish. The aboral or upper surface may be smooth, granular or spiny, and is covered with overlapping plates.
Starfish have tube feet operated by a hydraulic system and a mouth at the centre of the oral or lower surface. Starfish, like many sea creatures, are able to regenerate (grow back) parts of their bodies. Starfish are better at regeneration than most other creatures. Not only can a new ray grow when a ray is cut/torn off, but if the affected ray has even a small piece of the central disk still attached, a whole new starfish can grow from the one ray.
Las Marianas Star Toxins: Starfishes contain a very toxic poison known as Saponins. When stung/bitten, the saponins is lost into the wound, thus the target are plagued by a sharp stinging pain, persistent bleeding due to the haemolytic effect of saponins, nausea, tissue swelling, numbness and paralysis. Large dose of saponins, are lethal to humans. Saponins occur throughout the life-cycle of the starfish. Thus there are saponins similar to those in the adult tissues in the larvae and juvenile stars.
Seastars may possess at least an eye on every one of their arms - so a 5-armed starfish has 5 eyes, a 40-armed starfish has 40 and so on.
Sea stars vary in sizes and shapes and thus by harnessing their chakra a ninja who has signed this contract will be able to summon starfishes as little as the tip of their finger (although these tiny ones possess chakra, they are unable to use Star Arts and do not share most of the Sea Star abilities like regeneration and secretion of Saponin toxins) to those large enough to go head-to-head with the giant frogs of Myobozukan.
This poison from sea stars may be injected into a target's body via their spines(extendable and retractable), tube feet, mouth or other weapons which will be included in the respective summoning jutsu. The toxin(saponins) produced in starfishes will be manipulated using chakra. Versitility of this toxin will be made manifest in subsequent submissions of techniques known as Star Arts.
The contract holder or signer of the starfish summoning contract is able to summon sea stars from Las Marianas. The summoner, using different amounts of chakra may summon starfishes of varying sizes, abilities and weapons. Larvae and Juveniles may be summoned if the summoner at their own will uses a minimized amount of chakra or if due to circumstances beyond their control the summoning is unsuccessful. Larvae and Juvenile Stars possess chakra but do not possess saponin toxins until they are fully grown. In this growth stage, however, they may or may not utilize the Star arts.
Larvae takes 2 turns to develop into a species of starfish while Juvenile Stars take 1 turn. Sea stars do not require a water source to be summoned, however they can survive/live in water. Since they originate from the deepest part of the oceans of the world [6,000 m (20,000 ft) below the surface], starfishes/sea stars, being very conversant with water are thus able to sense water passively.
~I would like to claim ownership of all species of starfish, the Asteroidea Class and the Asterozoa Subphylum at large.~
✯ Hitode Kuchiyose: Uchikina Bushō: Ippan Ruīji | Starfish Summoning: The Bashful Warlord: General Luigi
Description: Luigi is a starfish from the Luidiidae family. He possesses seven long, slim tapering arms, and is generally known for his timid nature. Luigi's central disc and arms are of a dull yellow colour, irregularly blotched with dark green, brown and black. His unique colouration provides camouflage in desert and rocky regions and places with dense flora presence. Despite his shy personality, Luigi is a formidable opponent who specializes in the Wind element and Kenjutsu. He can use both techniques up to A rank with ease. Luigi has seven katana that are five metres long each. They are all strapped to his central disc, and can all be wielded at the same time. As is common in all Starfish summons, Luigi has as many eyes as the number of arms he has; in his case, seven. Luigi secretes saponins which he can inject into opponents in two ways — his tube feet and his katana. Luigi's arms are ten metres long and five metres high (same as central disc). He is capable of carrying just one person on his back due to his slim structure and can extend his arms up to long range. When summoned, Luigi sometimes enters the battle screaming his battle cry: “Lucky Luigi Launch; Number Seven!”, whilst spinning like a thrown shuriken with all seven katana wielded. As he spins, Luigi releases wind through his katana which allows him to easily cut through most obstacles in his way, thanks to the cutting properties of wind. This allows him to be used as a quick and effective means to attack in difficult situations and counts as an A rank move. Luigi can use all Star Arts techniques except the ones that are specific to a certain other Starfish. Luigi is resistant to attacks B rank and below.
✯ Lasts four turns; three turns if summoned as an attack; and can only be summoned once per battle.
✯ User must have signed the Starfish contract to summon Luigi.
✯ Must be summoned from the user's location.

✯ Hitode Kuchiyose: Tsukisasa Megami Heruga | Starfish Summoning: The Impaled Goddess — Helga
Helga belongs to the Brisingidae family under the order, Brisingida which are naturally deep-sea-dwelling starfish. Helga's inflexible circular disc is as large as the 2nd Mizukage's clam and she can comfortably carry at most six people on it. She has a bright orange colour which is congruent with her elemental nature—Fire. She has twenty flexible arms which means that she also has twenty eyes. These arms can extend up to long range and are covered with several long, durably hard extendable and retractable spines which she can use to attack a target by stabbing, slashing, etc as an S-rank attack (and counting as a move per single offensive maneuver). With the aid of her tube feet and flexible arms, Helga is able to easily move along even the most jagged terrains. The multiple spines she has all over her arms can also be used to give her added balance; by sticking them in the ground, she would not be easily pushed back by an opposing force. Her spines also serve as a trusty defence mechanism when required, and they can protect her from attacks B-rank and below; however, she can tank only one A-rank technique without being dispelled. As the title preceeding her name implies, Helga is excessively vain. She is very proud of her spines, and this is often reflected in her speech. Helga uses her spines as a means to inject saponins into her unfortunate victims; even a slight prick or cut from her spines can deposit a large enough dose of saponins to cause swelling, numbness and paralysis within two turns. If she succeeds in injecting a target by stabbing them, the dosage of saponins will be enough to kill them in four turns. Helga, like all other starfish is capable of using all Star Arts and she can passively sense the presence of any form of water on the terrain. She specializes in the Fire Release, and is capable of using it up to and including S-rank.
✯ Lasts four turns. Can only be summoned once per battle.
✯ Every fire technique used by Helga will count towards the user's move count.
✯ User must have signed the Starfish contract to summon her.

✯ Hitode Jutsu: Minashigo no Shōsan | Star Arts: Orphan's Praise
Type: Supplementary | Defence | Offence
Description: This technique can be used in two ways. The first usage is activated by releasing chakra into any of the starfish summoning seals engraved on their body, the user will summon a specific starfish organ en masse from said seal. It could be a mass of flexible starfish arms or a mass of sturdy spines. In either case, the organ will be used to attack or defend during a battle, by aiding movement, grabbing hold of a target or whatever the user wishes as long as it is within the scope of the technique and overall, reasonable. The other usage involves the user slamming their hand on the ground and summoning any of the aforementioned organs from any location between short-mid range of the user. This usage allows the user to—for instance—summon a mass of starfish spines from the ground beneath the target, with the ground rumbling as the organs emerge; or to summon a mass of starfish arms to protect them from a technique or bind an opponent. With this usage, the user can—if they choose—summon a either a single mass or two separate masses. A single mass is able to tank up to and including B-rank attacks, in addition to tanking a single A-rank attack—thereby being completely destroyed. If the starfish organs are summoned in two separate masses (two different locations at once), they will each count as B-rank entities and thus, these organs can protect the user from C-rank attacks and below, but will be completely destroyed by B-rank and above attacks. If they successfully hit an opponent, these organs can reach up to short-range of wherever they are summoned and deal physical damage equal to their rank (counting as a move per turn). Since these summoned organs belong to a large starfish in Las Marianas, they possess saponin toxins. Thus, if the user is able to hit an opponent with this technique, they will be injected with saponin toxins which will induce paralysis within three turns and death within five turns.
✯ Both usages will remain active for three turns unless they are destroyed or the user cancels them.
✯ At any given time, only one of two usages can be activated.
✯ Orphan's Praise can be used up to four times per event, with a two turn interval between each usage.
