You're a total and complete stranger with intentions which are still unknown to me or anyone else and all of a sudden you think you'll be allowed to interfere in hidden leaf matters and just join in anything we want to do? if you want to join the village then do it officially but if you're a wanderer or traveller then we have resorts and tourist centres you can visit for your satisfaction so if you don't mind, we'll be leaving now. whether you leave or not is your problem but if you pose a threat, you won't leave alive." Spectra then took a deep breath to relax from all he just put out.
    Tiashe listened to Spectra's outburst, knowing that this would probably only make Kazuya more curious though.

Kazuya was adapt at reading within the lines and he could easily draw from this man's words that Konoha is in stress but the question remains if it was an internal conflict or from outside forces.
    "Easy there ninja, your emotions say too much already. Calm down and tell me what's happening"
    I'm sorry, but we are not exactly obligated to tell you anything.

    I think we should just leave him be. he already told us that he's just a traveler.

    Seeing how there was no point in arguing with Kazuya, Tiashe simply ignored him and ran off towards the mansion. He could sense people gathering there, and knew that he and Spectra should too. As he was running, Tiashe looked behind and called out.

    Spectra, just come quickly.

    Kazuya sighs a bit signifying his heightened sense of accomplishment, he knew he was too good at convincing people, it was a natural trait he had acquired in his travels.

    Re: [Landmark 19] Hi no Kuni Inner Village: Commercial Area

    OOC; As a konoha ninja, i can travel through the village without and hinderences. As such i am leading the group led by Pervy through the village and wont be hindered by the 3 day rule, as was confirmed with LoK.

    Thraduil had explained the route they would be taking back in the Kazekage mansion before they left and so the toad would already know where to head, with Thranduils guidance. Always avoiding people so it just seemed like a general toad in the bushes passing through the land, not drawing attention to itself and going un sensed..

    At the same time, Thranduil summons Ma and Pa, while inside the toad and as such also utilizes the amphibian technique allowing him to enter Sage Mode immediately.

    We all proceed without delay heading through the land of fire.

    (Kuchiyose no Jutsu: Nidaisengama ) Summoning Technique: The Two Great Sage Toads - reference
    Type: Supplementary
    Rank: S
    Range: Short
    Chakra: 40 (X2 if summoning both)
    Damage: N/A
    Description: One of the elder leaders of the Toads of Myobokuzan, Fukasaku (also known as Pa) is a small toad (somewhat in contrast with the fact that he's older and more powerful than the gigantic Gamabunta) who serves as the main teacher of Sage techniques to Naruto and Jiraya. Possessing a keen intellect, he is a master strategist and an experienced fighter. Shima (also known as Ma) is his wife and acts as his battle partner but also one of the elder leaders in the clan as well. Capable and powerful, Shima matches Fukasaku's battle prowess and share most of his abilities. Both are capable of using Frog Katas and gathering natural energy to temporarily boost their physical strength (if they aren't merged with the user). Both can perform ninjutsu and use Senjutsu Techniques and while Fukasaku can use up to S-Rank Water and Wind techniques, Shima can use up to S-Rank Fire and Wind techniques. Both can use oil techniques, a trait shared amongst most Toads, and some unique techniques known only to toads. Ma and Pa are the only toads that can merge with the user to gather natural energy and transfer it to him, enabling the user to keep sage mode active as long as the Amphibian Mode is kept. The user can summon one or the other, once per battle for each. However, if the user wants to summon both in the same battle, he needs to gather chakra for one turn before they are summoned (the user does the summoning technique and waits one turn for the summoning to be complete, keeping his hands together as he gathers enough chakra to perform the summon). They seem to be constantly infused with natural energy or their sage mode is incredibly durable though they haven't shown the same type of sensory awareness as ninja sage mode users.
    Note: Requires signing the Toad Contract
    Note: The user may still use other techniques while summoning the elder toads, but cannot perform any handseals


    (Senpō: Ryōsei no Jutsu) – Sage Art: Amphibian Technique
    Rank: A
    Type: Supplementary
    Range: Short
    Chakra cost: 30
    Damage points: N/A
    Description: This technique is used to fuse on the shoulders of a student of the sage arts such as jiraiya. This maximizes the amount of sage chakra the person they are fused with to and allows them to also enter sage mode. This allows Fukasaku and Shima to continuously gather sage chakra for the person when they are moving, as they are stationary on top the persons shoulders thus eliminating the weakness of exhausting the users sage chakra in battle. This method however was not suitable for naruto as the 9 tailed fox rejected Fukasaku attempts to fuse with naruto during training.
    Note: Not cannot be used by Naruto Characters.
    Note: Can only be used with Shima and Fukasaku.
    Note: Can only be used with the Toad variation of Sage Mode.
    Note: Can only be used once.


    ( Sennin Modo ) – Sage Mode
    Rank: S
    Type: Supplementary
    Range: N/A
    Chakra cost: 70 (adds 350 chakra, consumes -15 per turn)
    Damage points: N/A
    Description: The user, by standing perfectly still in a meditative focus (user must stay still for 1 turn), will draw into him natural energy which he will then blend with their own chakra adding a new dimension of power to it. By doing this, the user gains access to what is called senjutsu chakra. This new chakra allows the user to enter an empowered state called Sage Mode, which then drastically increases the strength of his techniques and his physical prowess (speed, strength, stamina, etc). This variation is know as perfect Sage Mode and was first used by Naruto who could perfectly balance natural energy with chakra due to his unusual large chakra supply. The user gains horizontal slit pupils and orange markings around his eyes, reminiscent of Toads and pertain to the users connection with them. Their physical strength, speed, stamina, reflexes, and durability dramatically increase, with more emphasis on strength, endurance and stamina rather than speed and reflexes. The user can harness the natural energy surrounding them, turning it into an extension of their body, which increases the reach of their attacks through the use of Frog Kata. While sage mode is active, minor wounds heal slowly as time passes and the user gains the ability to passively sense his surroundings through the natural energy, in a similar but more precise and enhanced way as normal chakra sensing. Unlike other techniques, the user will not feel any depletion in terms of stamina and energy and will feel revitalized and strong while its active. However, once it ends, the exhaustion of sustaining such a delicate chakra balance takes over the user until he can recover. While Sage Mode is active, the user will take little damage from techniques C-Rank and below, and B-Rank and below Taijutsu. When Sage mode ends the user then experiences physical exhaustion reducing their capabilities the following turn preventing him from using techniques above A-Rank and Taijutsu above B-Rank. A user can prevent this by using the amphibian technique, using shadow clone to collect natural energy and dispelling them before sage mode ends or by ending sage mode before it times out. Taijutsu gains +25 damage, main elemental affinity gains +20 damage, other elemental ninjutsu gain +10 damage and Genjutsu gains +5 damage.
    Note: Sage Mode lasts for a total of 5 turns, unless a clone or amphibian technique is used.
    Note: if user uses Frog Katas length of Sage mode is cut by two turns.
    Note: This variation can only be used by those with the Toad contract

    It was kind of bright as the sun glared was right above people's heads. Thought the recent events shook Konohagakure of it's feet, the people living there seem to be back to their normal day to day lives. It was quite a crowded place with people roaming around here and there going through the shops and buying things. In a shop named Ichiraku Ramen, Theodor was seen eating the famous ramen with a pair of chopsticks. He got lost in his thoughts resulting him in eating the ramen more and more slowly. It was quite a while since Theo had done something, he hadn't even gone around Konoha much as he confined himself to his house most of the time.

    The owner of the restaurant, Teuchi saw Theo to be quite down and decided it would be good thing to tell him about something that recently started. Teuchi probably decided to tell it knowing how good Theo was in close quarter fight, especially with that battle armor he wears around all the time.

    "Theo, heard of the new mission going on around these days?"

    With that, Theo stood up a bit surprised and hit his hand against the counter.

    "Huh? New mission??"

    "Yeah, I saw it in one of those missions boards you see it here and there... I don't remember what it was..."

    "Finally!!!"

    Theo grabbed a few coins from his pocket and flung it across the counter and took off without waiting, he could hear the shouting of the owner but he didn't pay any attention.

    "Hey Kid!! At least eat up your ramen and go!!"

    "Damn kid..." said Teuchi as he started picking up the coins which ended up falling on the floor.

    At the nearest mission board, Theo saw it to be a Taijutsu only battle and decided to take it up. But for that, he had to contact the Hokage and get more details of the mission. It was a joyous moment for him, he finally had something he could do to get rid of the boredom that has been lurking around him for a long time. Taking fast steps, Theo headed towards the Hokage Mansion.

    Moving to Hokage Mansion

    Tiny mouse #2 scurried across the landmark, keeping an eye out for any enemy or ally. This place seemed to be free of either.

    Re: [Landmark 19] Hi no Kuni Inner Village: Commercial Area

    Coming from: Here.




    Shayde and his wolves made a frantic dash out of Otafuku Gai, almost completely ignorant of the two enemies that had attempted to engage him, but were intercepted by the one riding atop the colossal wooden golem. As a result, Shayde managed to move on unimpeded, and completely unaware of the situation he so narrowly avoided. But now he was in a much more dire situation. Otafuku Gai may have been a popular tourist spot, but it's popularity could barely compare to the heart of Konohagakure itself. So many people... So many innocents.... Civilians... Men... Women... Children... Shinobi... Meat!! Still clutching his right wrist with everything he had, he frightened himself with that last thought. Was it that Kaneki's actions back in Kurogakure had left an impression on him? No... Never!! Shayde was disgusted as he watched Kaneki tear into his arm, devouring it, seemingly with aplomb and delight. Then why? Why did he suddenly think of the people around him as... Meat? Was it related to the, as yet unknown, origins of his new, seemingly rebelling limb? Shayde genuinely had no clue, but as every second passed in the presence of these innocent people, he seemed to be drenched in a corrupt temptation to reach out, grab someone, and... And... The thought was too vile to even say. Desperately looking for somewhere to wait out this disgusting sense of hunger, Shayde spied the Tavern... The chances of running into old comrades was high, but maybe the overbearing stench of goat's piss would suppress this rabid and uncontrollable hunger... And if it didn't, at the very least, Shayde wouldn't mind killing his former allies as much as innocent civilians...

    As he swiftly entered the Tavern however, Shayde was met with a sight he did not expect... There was no one inside. In fact, the Tavern had almost completely fallen into dilapidation. It was dark. There were cobwebs and shadows decorating the entire interior with a grim tone. It looked like it had been weeks since anyone had stepped foot in there... Shayde was more than aware that things were on the decline when he left, but this...? This was not what Shayde expected... Granted, Konoha was entering into a state of War, and most would be gathering at the Mansion, or fending off Kuro's assault, but to let such a historic spot, where so many friendships were forged, and lasting memories made, wither away until it was a hollow shell of it's former self...? It was unforgivable... While he stared at the sight, a different sensation began to fill Shayde once more... Cold... Aloof... Crushing... Consuming... It was a feeling Shayde was growing more and more accustomed to in recent days, for better or worse. Sadness... No matter how hard he tried, Shayde felt like he was sinking further and further into a bottomless sea of sorrow. He had given up all hope of surfacing from this metaphorical ocean, but just when he believed he had hit the bottom, the world proves him wrong providing a new reason to grieve, and feel lost and alone... It was a feeling he was getting rather tired of if he was to be frank... So instead of wallowing in the ocean of memories and negative emotions, he decided he would make the most of this opportunity. Walking towards the counter, the same one where he had refused so many "refreshing" drinks from his friends while they sat and chatted about any little thing they could think of. Such delightful beverages as Goat's Piss, Goat's Piss-shake, oh, and can't forget about the delectable Iced Goat's Piss. With so much variety, how could Shayde dare to refuse? Chuckling to himself as he drew closer to the bar, he promptly vaulted the counter, and rummaged around, finding himself a tall glass mug. If that was to be the last time he spent in Konoha, then maybe he should try it. Just this once... Holding the dusty pitcher beneath a tap at the nearby sink, cleaning it to ensure there was neither dust, nor any other trace of a mark on the glass, before walking over to one of the many casks of "aged" Goat's Piss, pouring himself a small drink. As he stared down at the completely inconsequential amount of liquid in the mug, Shayde thought back on all the times he so vehemently refused to take even a sip, and just how silly he was in hindsight. He naturally still thought of the "beverage" as disgusting, but the way he turned his friends' kind gestures down so insistently was perhaps a step too far upon reflection... And so, as he raised the mug up high, Shayde took in this sight one last time, for chances were he would never see this monumentally historic location again, for within the next few hours, it would either be razed to the ground, or he would be dead. As he closed his eyes and took the most minuscule sip of the local delicacy, he could only be sure of one thing... He was right to refuse it all those years, because it was, without a doubt, the sorriest excuse for a drink he had ever tasted... Gently placing the mug back down on the counter, Shayde then walked out of the Tavern, holding back whatever semblance of tears he could shed for this place. As Shayde quietly made his way back on to the main thoroughfare, it seemed his little detour held some meaning, no matter how small, or the fact that it only truly applied to him. He discovered there was a redeemable quality to Goat's Piss after all, as it had replaced his apparent urge to tear into the nearest civilian, tearing them limb from limb, all while feasting on their flesh, with an uncontrollable urge to vomit, at least temporarily.

    As he slowly and carefully made his way through the droves of former fellow Konohagakurians, drawing closer to the Mansion, he thought about who might still be there to greet him. So many had passed on... Would there even be anyone left that he could recognize? He couldn't be sure of anything these days... So much had changed over the course of the last few months, he was astounded that he managed to keep up with it all... If someone had told him just a few weeks back that he'd be a part of the Rogue Ninja who had been systematically attacking the Great Villages, he would have died from laughter, and yet, here he was. Attacking his old allies with some "new ones"... Shayde was so lost in thought that he barely heard someone calling out his name. Was it an old friend, a Leaf Shinobi, come to challenge him? Make him pay for his destruction of the Mansion, a stab at the heart of the Leaf in it's direst moment? As he looked around, he barely caught a glimpse of a face. One he had not seen in a while. A warm, welcoming face, peeking through white cloth dividers of his establishment. It was Teuchi, owner of Ichiraku Ramen. Shayde remembered, one of the reasons he came this way was to have one last bite at Ichiraku's, if this was to be the last time they'd be in business that is... With a gentle beckoning hand, Shayde acquiesced to Teuchi's invite, gently pushing the cloth dividers aside, before taking a seat at the counter. No one else was around, not even the blond Uzumaki brat who practically lived here... Seemed like it was a rather slow day here at Ichiraku, surprising, as this place had, without a doubt, the best food available in Konoha, bar perhaps the BBQ Restaurant. But, given his recent mindset, Shayde wasn't really in the mood for a lot of meat. Instead, he ordered his "usual", and with a joyous cheer, and vibrant enthusiasm, both Teuchi and Ayame got to work. While they did, they provided another valuable service that came naturally to their profession. The three made idle chatter, as the Ramen was being prepared, and while it was innocent enough at first, with topics such as the weather, and Ayame's love/hate opinion of Shayde's new hair colour, when Teuchi started casually mentioning topics like the rumours that "some group" of Rogue Ninja were on the march, and the icy destruction of the Mansion, and the meteoric blue fireball that descended upon the heart of Konoha, Shayde knew. They were both more than aware of Shayde's current affiliations, or at least, partially aware... And yet, despite expecting condemnation, or judgement for his actions, none came. Teuchi and Ayame were both aware that their current customer was a no-good piece of scum... But they didn't care to judge. Instead, they provided their service, just as they always did. Shayde wanted to thank them for this, but that was tantamount to confessing his sins, so, instead, as Teuchi placed the bowl before Shayde, he drew both Teuchi and Ayame a sincere look of gratitude. But it was one that didn't last long... As Shayde quickly began stuffing his face. Where there was once a calm quiet, only supplemented with the quiet chirping of birdsong, there was now the feral sounds of chomping and slurping, as Shayde devoured the bowl of Ramen most viciously. As he was eating the delicious bowl of nostalgia, he came to the conclusion that his urge to emulate Kaneki's cannibalistic tendencies were nothing more than his body telling him he needed something to eat. After all, he hadn't eaten anything since originally setting out for Kurogakure from Crimson State Island. And between the loss of most of his vital bodily fluids, as well as an arm, and however long it took for him to recuperate, he had lost a lot of his fluids, and hadn't bothered to replenish them before leaving. Clearly, he was in a pretty poor state. Maybe that was why Teuchi beckoned to him in the first place? Yeah. That had to be it... As he finished his meal, and placed the bowl back on the counter, there was one thing he was completely sure of. Nothing hit the spot quite like Ichiraku. As he thought those exact words, he could hear an echo of them, replaying again, and again, and again within his head. He wondered why he was fixating on them, until another voice was heard... It was a deeper, more bestial voice, with clear malicious intent, and no external source whatsoever. Instead, it seemed to come from every direction, and all at once, from within Shayde's own head.


    "IS... THAT... SO...?!"

    At the same time, Shayde's arm suddenly changed shape. Some parts contorting, bubbling, while others began spiralling in on themselves, before opening to reveal eyes that darted all around, and some parts even seemed to tear themselves open in a grim, yet bloodless, spectacle, revealing sharp-fanged grins. Before Shayde could even register it, his "right arm" expanded and extended out towards Teuchi, and, in one swift motion, devoured everything from the waist up, leaving his legs to casually fall to the floor, slowly forming a pool of blood. Barely registering what had just transpired before her, watching as her father's upper body disappeared in a spray of blood, Ayame went to open her mouth to scream, but before she could, Shayde's right arm Greed, still chomping down on Teuchi's upper body, snapped around to her with another portion of it's "body", and enveloped her, devouring her entirely... Shayde was stunned, and completely speechless at this sight, not because the Ichiraku duo of father and daughter had been mercilessly devoured, they were no doubt going to die once Kurogakure had laid waste to the rest of the Village. Instead, Shayde was overwhelmed upon realizing that, this entire time, he had been walking around with another life form pretending to be his arm. From the smallest, most minute details, like small faded scars, to it behaving and feeling just like his own arm. It was a sudden, jolting realization that, despite how hard he tried to convince himself otherwise, he was, at least partially, a monster now. Just like the rest of Kurogakure... As he tried to come to grips with this new-found reality, he scoured his own thoughts for an explanation, any reasoning, behind where this thing came from, or how it could, apparently, assume the shape of his original arm, and shape and twist into any kind of malignant form, like the mouths and sections that just devoured the Ichiraku's. Shayde then remembered his trial, and how Kaneki appeared to have some similar mass of flesh that could bend and shape itself into various shapes, like some form of liquid muscle. He remembered the many mouths that taunted him, and the eyes that stared holes through his very soul. The various centipede-like legs that tore and shredded his body, and the sinewy muscles that flayed his skin as he watched. If this was the work of anyone in Kurogakure, it was Kaneki... Naturally with obvious, perhaps even curious, approval from Berserker himself... Or was it Jeanne who green-lit this idea? Was this the only way to restore Shayde lost arm? To attach part of that thing to the spot where the original one had been devoured? Shayde was starting to believe that the "they pumped Kaneki's stomach and put it back together" idea was the more preferable outcome... But regardless of whether or not he wanted it, this "thing", whatever it was, was now a part of him... As Shayde thought about Greed as a "thing", he felt a sudden, deliberate sharp pain at the suspected "boundary" between himself and his right arm, almost as if it could, not only hear his thoughts, but understood the meaning behind those words enough to facilitate a hostile response to them. As puzzling as it was, it showed signs of sentience, but not enough to be considered on the same level as Shayde himself, more akin to a feral beast that was now permanently, and irreversibly attached to his body. And it would seem there would be no controlling it, as, for the entire time Shayde was asking himself these questions, it seemed to hunger for even more. Teuchi and Ayame were clearly not enough, for it was now happily feasting on their establishment itself. From the wooden counter that had played host to an infinite number of relationship building meals [X], whether it be civilians seeking fine cuisine, or Shinobi teams unwinding after a long and difficult mission, to the grease traps that prepared a million batches of noodles, the stove that cooked unfathomable amounts of meat, or the work station that had seen an infinite number of vegetables sliced and diced. All of it was slowly, but surely being devoured by the rapacious and insatiable hunger of Shayde's right arm... And, as startling as it was... Shayde didn't care any more. The realization of what he had become gave him everything he needed to progress towards the Mansion, to finish this, once and for all. As he stood up, Shayde reached into his pocket with his left hand and pulled out a loose number of coins, and notes, gently placing them on what was left of the counter.

    "Thank you for the food... And everything else..."

    As he stepped out into the Village, immediately drawing attention to himself from a number of Konohagakure civilians, who were, understandably startled by the sight of an otherwise normal man, with an oversized mass of eyes and teeth where his left arm should have been. While Greed's eyes darted all around, looking at new, fresh sources of sustenance, he immediately fixed gaze with the closest potential meals. Shayde's wolves. As it started to creep closer, Shayde tensed up, staring directly into Greed's many eyes. As uncanny as it was, Shayde realized that, if this thing could read his thoughts, then it wouldn't be too far of a stretch if the opposite was true. And so it was. It was planning on eating Roukan, the most visible of the group, before targeting the two hiding amongst the shadows at his feet. Shayde made his stance transparently clear.

    "Touch them, I won't hesitate to cut you off, and burn you to ****ing ashes! Got it?!"

    This was not a bluff. If Greed so much as touched a hair on one of the wolves' body's, Shayde wouldn't hesitate to aim for the rather clear area where the two became one, and slice this greedy mass of crap clean off. Despite barely possessing communicative abilities, the message was understood, loud and clear... Everything but the small furry creatures was free game!! RIGHT?! The lack of any response from Shayde was akin to silent approval. His friends, comrades and allies were one thing, but these people? He just realized that they meant absolutely nothing to him. With absolute approval to feast, Greed showed it's true nature by expanding it's form further, engorged by the mass of the partially consumed Ichiraku Ramen. Greed scanned the crowd, before fixating his gaze on the nearest civilian who was stupid enough to stop, linger and stare at both he and Shayde. A woman. Long fair hair. Couldn't have been older than 25. She was carrying a grocery bag full of foodstuffs. In a sudden motion, the writhing mass of flesh, sinew and bone that was Greed, extended out like a spear, before driving itself straight through the unfortunate hors d'oeuvre of this "All You Can Eat Buffet" that was Konohagakure... Penetrating straight through her abdomen, Greed then pulled back, drawing the woman back to him, where a large pair of jaws was waiting patiently to snap closed, reducing the poor woman to a pile of meat, blood and ground bone... With many witnesses present, all watching in horror as this young lady was murdered in cold blood, though Greed would disagree... Her blood was warm to the touch, and very tasty at that... At the drop of a hat, a panic erupted in the street of Konoha. People running for their lives, some not quick enough, being stabbed, grabbed, tripped up and all pulled back to Greed, where they were hastily devoured. And with each new meal, Greed's form and reach grew further. But as the people on the streets were becoming scarer and sparser with every passing moment, Greed decided that it would hunt harder for it's meals...


    Greed started destroying nearby buildings, houses, store fronts, market stalls, everything. Nothing was "too good" for him to pass up. Sometimes he was lucky, finding some random person hiding, soiling themselves at the sight of his expanding form and influence as this monstrosity tore through their homes, and ripped their loved ones asunder. Mouths appearing at the end of the many Kagune-like appendages that had been formed from Greed, tearing into everything in sight. All the while, Shayde continued on his determined march to the Mansion. He couldn't, or perhaps didn't want to, understand it, but every time Greed devoured a new person, or someone's home, or more mass in general, he felt some semblance of relief from the perpetual pain that had been plaguing him since he awoke from his recovery... Was that hollow feeling a direct result of this things' implantation? Was it a side-effect of it's origin potentially involving Kaneki? It seemed like there was nothing Kaneki was above eating after all, and this thing seemed to share his eating habits. Everything was edible if one was hungry enough... And, clearly, Shayde's new arm surpassed even Kaneki's appetite, as neither trash nor treasure were spared from Greed's invasion.

    As Shayde and company were reaching the end of the commercial district, Greed had sated it's hunger enough to be considered "full", if a being who seemed to embody the very sin itself could ever be "full", to warrant rest. It also didn't help that, after it's blatant rampage in the heart of the district, most everyone had either evacuated, or were surprisingly well-hidden, and would no doubt take more effort to find than would be worth it, so, for now, he reverted back to his "original" form, imitating Shayde's arm once more. This brought no small amount of relief to the Uchiha host, as walking into the Mansion, or even surrounding area, looking like he just did would have been suicidal. Now the only indication that anything had happened was Shayde's right side was stained by a few smatterings of blood, and a tattered torn sleeve at the shoulder, where Greed had expanded and ripped through his clothing with his enlarged form as it tore innocent people, their belongings, and their homes to shreds... While Shayde didn't even so much as bat an eye. And he continued to do so while walking calmly towards the Mansion, and the end of this War.

    (Gurīdo ∞ Eien no Kiga) Greed ∞ The Eternal Hunger
    Type: Weapon
    Rank: Forbidden
    Range: Short - Long (Depending on Greed's shape)
    Chakra: N/A - 50 (Devour) 20 (Regeneration) 10 (Shapeshifting)
    Damage: N/A (40 whilst Assimilated) (10 damage every turn)
    Description: Greed, also known as "(Kamītā) God Eater", is a weaponized Symbiote, a sentient type of organism that seeks out and bonds with a host organism in order to survive, and thrive. Unlike most symbiotic entities Greed is a "Mutualistic" Symbiote, a type of symbiote that survives through a host organism, while providing the host some manner of benefit with it's presence, unlike others which are typically "Parasitic" Symbiotes, which only bring pain, suffering and/ or death with their presence. As one might expect, Greed has an insatiable appetite, and the unfortunate habit of eating just about anything that comes within range, indiscriminating between friend or foe, trash or treasure, etc. All he knows is his own eternal hunger, and the desire to be free from it. While this is most prevalent personality trait, Greed is also brutal, arrogant, disrespectful, sadistic, deceptive, and much, much more, all thanks to his begrudging dependency on other organisms for his survival.

    Greed's ravenous hunger goes hand in hand with his ability to analyze, retain and replicate the appearance, texture, properties, etc of any solid material he devours, regardless of whether it is natural, man-made, created via Chakra, etc, similar to the Ninjutsu "(Shinra Banshō Dōka No Jutsu) - Assimilate All Creation Technique". As stated, this ability only works on solids, meaning liquids, gasses, energies, etc cannot be devoured and replicated using this ability, as they lack physical substance for Greed to consume and assimilate. Examples include a wide and varied range from basic earthen materials like dirt and hard earth, to denser materials, like rocks, metals and crystals, and organic materials, such as wood. In the case of materials devoid of Chakra, devouring them costs no Chakra and is a passive action. In the case of materials created via Chakra, the user must expend Chakra equivalent to the Rank of the material Greed wants to devour and this will cost a move. Greed can only replicate the properties from a single material at any given time, in addition to his base state. The ability to assimilate the properties of a material into his form is a passive one, and requires no Chakra from the user to achieve, but is limited to only one change per turn.

    In his base state Greed possesses an immunity to B-Ranks and below, and requires at least an A-Rank to damage him, and another to destroy him, or one S-Rank, etc. While Greed is injured in his base state, he can quickly regenerate injured/ destroyed parts within that same turn, at the cost of being being unable to assimilate/ replicate the properties of a material. In other words, while Greed is regenerating, he cannot devour materials to analyze their properties, change his shape, or enter his assimilated state, as he is solely focussed on regenerating from the damage he has sustained.

    In his assimilated state, Greed's durability is increased to Forbidden Rank, and requires at least one S-Rank to damage him, and another to destroy him, or one Forbidden Rank, etc. While Greed is injured in his Assimilated state, he can regenerate injured/ destroyed parts over the course of the next turn, during which time he is still susceptible to a fatal attack. Finally, thanks to the increase in his durability, physical attacks that utilize Greed whilst assimilated also receive a substantial increase, dealing 20 more damage, such as Taijutsu, or Kenjutsu if Greed changes his shape into that of a blade.

    In addition to his "assimilation" ability, Greed also has complete and total control over the shape and general functions of his form, allowing him to change his forms shape and functions to suit his needs, usually covering the majority of his form into as many mouths as he can. This "Shapeshifting" relies on a mass-conversion system, allowing Greed to mould himself into shapes and forms equivalent to, or less than, the total amount of mass he has consumed. This can allow Greed to shape his form in many ways, moulding himself into the shape of various weapons, like a blade to facilitate the usage of Kenjutsu, or a whip-like appendage to engage in ranged strikes, while his assimilation ability allows Greed to change the general properties and appearance of these shapes into various materials, making his strikes both versatile, and deadly.

    Through both of these abilities Greed is implanted into users Biography's hands/ arms via Medical Ninjutsu, requiring a Medical Ninja to oversee the merging of the two. This is performed within the NarutoBase Hospital to ensure that Greed's consumption and replication of the user's hand/ arm is as close to the original as possible, and, using their knowledge of the inner workings of the body, ensure functions like the flow of blood, as well as the connection between Greed and the user's Tenketsu, the flow of the user's Chakra into Greed, and other biological functions, such as the connection between nerves, etc, are as functional as possible. This allows both the user and Greed to share their senses, experiences, allows direct mental communication between the two, etc, while also allowing the user to weave seals using Greed as a proxy, and supply Greed with Chakra for his abilities, or for Greed to forcefully drain Chakra from his host. Greed can also devour small portions of the body and with every inch of the user devoured comes excruciating pain, equivalent to the pain inflicted by biting your tongue off.

    While the user has some leeway in their manipulation of Greed, such as utilizing him to perform hand seals for their Jutsu, Greed is still his own organism, and thus is capable of both independent movement, thought, actions, etc, regardless of input from his host. This means that, should the host may be incapacitated, or unable to act in some manner, it doesn't necessarily apply to Greed. For example, in the case of a Genjutsu directed at the host, although they and Greed share the same Chakra flow, because Greed has his own mind, senses, etc, he would be unaffected unless the Genjutsu affects multiple targets.

    Note: The acquisition of unique or specific materials must be performed in an Official Fight where Greed consumes the specified material, and the user emerges victorious, or escapes the battle. Additionally, the user must compile a list of all materials Greed has devoured, with the links to the appropriate battles, within their Custom Jutsu thread.
    Note: Can only be used by Iᴍᴘᴇяғᴇᴄᴛ.







    Chakra: 1400 -30 (Tekkai (Activated Here) -10 (Greed (Shapeshift Ability) = 1360.

    Leaving Landmark. Heading to Landmark #25, Hokage's Palace.
