(Kuchiyose No Jutsu: Ekitei) – Summoning Technique: Ekitei
Ekitei is a Bengal monitor who specializes in spying techniques such as camouflaging. He is normally the size of a regular adult Bengal monitor but will usually transform into the size of a lizard in order to hang/fuse to someone’s back and follow him (like a parasiting technique), his weight being so light that this person won’t know or suspect anything. While he does so, he will camouflage himself and be completely unseen from regular eyes. When Ekitei is summoned in battle, it will appear as a fail as he will already be in camouflaged mode (i.e. he will be the size of a lizard and hanging/fused to the summoner’s back, as well as camouflaged to deceive regular eyes). There, he will keep check of any disturbance in the summoner’s chakra flow and release him immediately from any genjutsu, as well as watch for any attacks coming from the summoner's back, alerting him of such dangers in a timely manner. Thus, while Ekitei is active, it is very hard to catch the summoner off-guard through the use of genjutsu and/or sneak attacks from his back.
Can only be summoned by those who have signed the Bengal Monitor contract.
The summoner of Ekitei must be Sannin rank or above.
Camouflaging will not deceive a Byakugan user. For sharingan users, they will only be able to notice Ekitei if the person he hangs to shows his back to them.
Camouflaging will not deceive sensory techniques that makes use of physical conditions other than visual ones, such as Chakra Sensing Rain which makes physical contact, or the Inuzuka's smelling senses.
Can only release the summoner from A-rank genjutsu and below.
Being on the back of the summoner, Ekitei is unaffected by regular genjutsus as long as his presence is undetected, and he is unaffected by visual genjutsus since he doesn't make eye contact with the opponent.
