Clan Name: Sabure

Clan Location: Suna

Clan Traits: -

Kekkei Genkai:

Sand Manipulation

The members of this clan hav a very unique ability to manipulate sand as though it were an extension of themselves in terms of ultimate defense and ultimate offense. It is said to be one of the most dangerous and effective tools a ninja of the sand village can have. The members of this clan have unique chakra with in themselves that allow them to do this, and it is not a mix of two elements, rather it is a new off set basic element and as such is the main element of all ninja who wield it. (This meaning that all ninja in this clan can only have sand and a sub element contrary to advanced element clans which allow three elements.) However, they can not create sand just from their chakra (another difference from advanced elements) and need a source of sand to use their jutsu. For this reason, many find a way to carry sand with them at all times.

This ability is largely tied into their history and founding from the ninja Gaara, the very first Kazekage and founder of the Village Hidden in the Sand as well. The man was imbibed with a demonic beast known as Shikaku, the sand demon. Having the demons influence his entire life, it altered his very genetic structure, granting him the natural ability to manipulate sand with his will at the expense of chakra. Being that the demon provided a mutation on a genetic level, this trait was passed to his children, and the children of his children. Being that this derived from one person alone, and by comparison is a relatively new clan, it is small by comparison to other clans, but is abundant enough to be considered a clan.

Secret Clan Jutsu:

Name: Sand Armor
Type: Ninjutsu
Rank: C
Element: Sand
Description: Using this jutsu, the user can cover themselves in a compacted layer of sand, providing an additional defense. Though quite effective, maintaining the armor requires a large amount of chakra and stamina. Furthermore, it is nowhere as resilient as the Shield of Sand, since it easily breaks away upon impact, meaning that the sole purpose of the armor is to absorb impact channeled unto the body during battle. And will reduce the impact of all taijutsu and weaponary by 75% effectiveness. Another weakness is the additional weight of the sand means a decrease of speed and mobility. It takes a D rank amount of chakra PER POST to keep it activated (not counting the first post used).

Name: Sand Shield
Type: Ninjutsu
Rank: C
Element: Sand
Description: This creates a curved shape wall of sand to come up from the ground around the users vacinity, the restriction is only 2 meters away from the person using it. The shield is capable of withstanding considerably strong attacks and projectiles, and can be hardened to a point where it's stronger than steel. It can be defeated by avoiding it completely with extremely high-speed attacks, or merely overcoming the shield with incredible brute force. It costs a C rank amount of chakra per shield wall created and additional C rank per post (minus the post created) to maintain the wall or else it will crumble back to sand, impacted or not.

Name: Third Eye
Type: Ninjutsu
Rank: D
Element: Sand
Description: This jutsu creates a small sphere shaped object of sand that creates a direct link to the users optic nerve. The ball will then from into an eye shape and then take the appearance of an eyeball floating in the air. The user can then see anything the eye ball can.

Name: Sand Shuriken
Type: Ninjutsu
Rank: D
Element: Sand
Description: The user creates up to five shuriken made from sand that are launched at the target. Unlike regular shuriken, these are merely fast-moving balls of sand that cause blunt trauma, not actual wounds. They are thrown much faster than regular shuriken; therefore, the pain caused can be considerable.

Name: Sand Clone
Type: Ninjutsu
Rank: C
Element: Sand
Description: The user creates a copy of themself out of sand, although it lacks color and is immediately recognizable as sand. This means that it is almost useless as a decoy. Unlike most bunshinjutsu, the clone still retains its shape after it is struck, and can even ensnare whatever comes into contact with it.

Name: Sand Coffin
Type: Ninjutsu
Rank: C
Element: Sand
Description: With the ability to control sand, the user encases the opponents in a large amount of the sand, immobilizing them. It can be used to suffocate an opponent or in preparation for a deadlier technique, the Sand Burial. This appears to be the clans favored technique. It takes a C rank amount of chakra per post if used only to capture and hold the target.

Name: Sand Burial
Type: Ninjutsu
Rank: C
Element: Sand
Description: After wrapping an opponent with sand, the user will cause the sand to implode and crush whatever is within. When used to kill a person, the death is so quick that there isn't even time to feel pain. The pressure also produces a sizable fountain of blood. The user can control the pressure used in the attack, which allows them to either break bones or completely liquefy an opponent.

Name: Sand Drizzle
Type: Ninjutsu
Rank: C
Element: Sand
Description: An alternative to Sand Coffin, the user simply gathers sand from the earth and makes it come down like a rain, targeting the opponents from above. To make sure the rain hits its mark, it can be combined with Sand Coffin to immobilize the target.

Name: Successive Shots Sand Drizzle
Type: Ninjutsu
Rank: B
Element: Sand
Description: This creates the cloud of sand behind the user rather then over head. Several sand bullets will erupt from the cloud and bombard the opponent at once. These are much thiner and faster then those used in Sand Shuriken and are capable of actually piercing through the target, rather then just causing blunt force trauma to the body.

Name: Sand Suspension
Type: Ninjutsu
Rank: B
Element: Sand
Description: Gathering sand beneath them and/or an ally, the user will create a platform of sand to raise up from the ground and float in the air. It costs a B rank amount of chakra to cast the jutsu and a D ranked amount per post afterward to sustain it over time.

Name: Prison Sand Burial
Type: Ninjutsu
Rank: B
Element: Sand
Description: Using the ability to manipulate sand, the user will loosen the ground below the targets and cause them to sink two hundred meters into the earth. By being imprisoned at this depth, the pressure will completely nullify their ability to move. Also, the pressure resulting from being buried at such an extreme depth would surely kill any normal human, if not from suffocation.

Name: Sand Tsunami
Type: Ninjutsu
Rank: B
Element: Sand
Description: This jutsu sends a massive amount of sand towards an opponent in the form of a wave, covering and "drowning" them in an ocean of sand. In addition to the wave effect of the jutsu, The user can control the sand, allowing him to attack his opponent while they attempt to outrun the wave. The jutsu is so powerful as to be able to change the landscape into a miniature dessert. It will smother and bury any one who is caught in it, though it is quite easy to come back up from this burial. Though it is only a B ranked technique, when used it costs as much chakra as using 2 B ranked jutsus, draining much more chakra.

Name: Giant Sand Burial
Type: Ninjutsu
Rank: B
Element: Sand
Description: Following Sand Tsunami, the user will slam both hands palm down into the sand, creating powerful shock waves that compress the sand. Anything buried in the sand is subsequently crushed. The compressions also creates several small scale earthquakes.

Name: Sphere of Sand
Type: Ninjutsu
Rank: B
Element: Sand
Description: The user surrounds them self completely with a Shield of Sand to guard against attacks. They can then use the Third Eye to watch an opponents' movements and control sand as necessary to battle them. In addition to being extremely dense, this sand-sphere can form spikes from its surface to spear any would-be attacker. With sufficient piercing or blunt force this defense can be broken through.

Name: Sky Sand Protective Wall
Type: Ninjutsu
Rank: S
Element: Sand
Description: This air defense technique creates a giant shield of sand that is suspended in mid-air by raising a great amount of sand from the ground. By gathering the best possible mineral-rich sand, the hardness of the shield is considered to be very high. Furthermore, the sand has its defensive strength raised by flowing chakra through it. It is the strongest of all sand defenses usable. It is also extremely large, form a circle shape of about 50 meters in diameter.

Name: Sand Prison
Type: Ninjutsu
Rank: S
Element: Sand
Description: This uses an enormous quantity of sand to completely envelop the target from every direction and capture them. The speed, hardness, and scope of the sand depend on the amount of chakra poured into it. This allows the user to fine-tune the sand's properties to the size and characteristics of the target. No matter if the target is on the ground or flying in the air, it is almost impossible to escape from this technique. However, even if someone successfully escapes from it, it is easy to use one of the offensive techniques, like the Sand Coffin, to immediately attack the target.

History: [center]

The clan started with the man Known as Gaara Sabure, Ironically his last name meaning sand. It is unknown if this was his given last name at birth or a change made later on with the birth of his children and the underlying creation of the clan. At birth the man was imbibed with a demon known as Shikaku who was known to all as the demon of sand. It was a fairly wicked demon, but precautions took by the family of the child and thier friends created barriers to which the demon could not come out and control the child as it would have liked. In desperation the demon tried to fuse itself physically with the boy at a genetic level but was not able to over come his strong will. In the end this only granted him the ability to manipulate the sands of the earth and gave the demon no more control then before.

The man later became known as one of the greatest Shinobi of his time and became the founder of the village in the sand, creating the structures and everything from the desert itself using his powers granted by the accursed demon. He was known as a hero and was one of the most respected founding Kage's. He eventually wed and his wife bore unto him children. Three. These three all showed the natural talent to manipulate the sands and so was revealed that the ability was a dominant trait and that it would be passed down through the ages so long as his children and their children and so on continued to create new life. With the passing of Gaara also came the passing of the demon, and his death day became known as a holiday for a celebration of his life and also the destruction of a threatening demon who was no more.

Description/Abilities:It is just a normal Katana

History:Sasori stood a top a hill looking down looking down at three men. He thought to himself "i wonder if its worth killing them" then quickly deciding he jump upon the men. "Hello there" he said to them as the three men looked startled. Sasorui quickly did the hand signal and the first man was cought in the sand prison jutsu. One of the remaining men ran Sasori cared less he wanted what the other man had his sword. Saosori ran in with a kuni the man side steped. Seeing that the man did what he expected Sasori shot sand shurikan at him and he fell. Saosori walked over and clamed his prize. Examining his new sword Sasori said "now you new name shall be Shadow Sting".

Appearance:The blade is about 5 feet long and has smooth creases along the edge. the hilt is wrapped in red and black wraps. The hand gaurd is square with dragon designs carved into it. along the right side of blade Sasori carved the words "kumori Ken, Piripiri" witch means Shadow Sting.


Background Information/ RP Sample

History:Sasori Sabure was born in Sunagakure into to the clan Sabure. As a young boy Sasori learned the clan's Jutsu. He would practice every day to manipulate sand. One day at the age of six while Sasori was practicing his Sand Shuriken technique his grandfather came to him, and told him of how his parents did not return home from there mission. That night Sasori vowed he would become strong no matter what it took or cost him.

Under his grandfather's watchful eyes Sasori become better and better with the clan's Jutsu. Two more years of intense training Sasori got into a fight with another boy from his clan the fight ended with the boys death. With the boys death on Sasori's hands he ran to his grandfather and asked what he should do. Knowing Sasori did not kill the on purpose the elders of the clan did not punish Sasori but told him not to allow such thing to happen again.

A few weeks later Sasori's Grandfather passed away in his sleep Sasori lost is last guardian. He went to the clan's elders and asked for advice on what he should do, they told him that it is time for him to take his leave and travel the world to become the ninja that he was meant to be. The next day Sasori set out on his adventure the clan gave him a scroll that would teach him the other Jutsu that he did not know yet, but he could only learn them when he reached a certain age.

Along with the scroll Sasori took with him his jar of sand a few supply's and food. He had no ryo so he took a few jobs here and there to get it to but food and supply's when he ran out. for to more years he traveled around the Wind Country living like this then he set out for the fire country. When he first arrived not many accepted him for jobs they did not trust Sasori. They feared him because he resembled his great, great Grandfather.

Life in the Fire Country was hard for Sasori so he turned to hunting down criminals, scum and any other person who had a bounty on his head. This turned out to be fun for Sasori he turned every hunt into a game. One day while hunting a fugitive wanted for several counts of murder Sasori crept up on him when the fugitive stabbed him in his hand. Sasori screamed out in pain and gathered up sand and killed then man using Sand Burial.

Sasori had no problem killing his bounty's he preferred to do so even though he would not get as much ryo. Sasori had his own little house that was on the border of Fire Country and River Country. He bought the house so he could at least be near his home. A few months have gone by and Sasori just claimed another bounty when he heard about the Lightning Country.

This interested Sasori and he figured out why the elders sent him out so that he could learn to wiled Lightning. Sasori set out to the lightning Country at once. it took a little longer then he expected it would but he finaly got there. Upon arriving at Kumogakure Sasori joined the academy were he learn to wiled a sword and control Lightning. Even though he was now learning new jutsu he would still practice and learn his clan's Jutsu. Sasori was a little home sick but he knew what must be done so that he can live up to his clan's name.

Role-Play Sample: Sasori was hiding in the grass his hand was on his sword his other was controlling sand. His foe a unknown ninja with a black face mask. Sasori was trying to distract him with his sand while at the same time get him to fall into his trap. Using the sand Sasori was pushing the man towards a certain spot so that Sasori could kill him with the Sand Coffin/ burial combo.

So far the unknown ninja was throttling Sasori's attempts but then again he was frustrated because he did not know were Sasori was hiding. The ninja kept the sand at bay but barley and kept slipping up with every try. Sasori threw a few more Sand Shuriken's at the unknown ninja only one hit him. This was all Sasori needed leaping out of the grass he performed the hand signal and screamed "SAND COFFIN".

Sand wrapped around the unknown ninja Sasori could hear him fighting for air. He turned his hand up side down and said "sand burial". The unknown ninja was crushed to death as a evil grin appeared on the face of Sasori. Sasori turned around as his sand returned to his jar then he realized to late.

two more ninja who looked like the man Sasori just killed jumped from the trees and shot water type attack at Sasori. On the ground and covered with water Sasori quickly jumps back to his feet as the two ninja came in attempting to kill him. Pulling out his sword Sasori swings downward at an angle catching one of the ninjas of guard he decapitated him.

The other ninja leaped back in the tree and said "you are good for a kid but i will end this now". Sasori just laughed he waited he knew he was running out of chakra but he had to kill this ninja and quick. The ninja in the tree was kneeling and watching sasori "this one is from the Sabure clan what is he doing out here" he thought to himself.


Sasori stated walking back and forth keeping his eye on the tree were the ninja was. a few moments go by and finally screaming out rushed the ninja. Sasori was to quick as the ninja came in from the left he stepped to the right and stabbed him right in his chest. Cleaning the blood from his sword Sasori looted the three body's.

Sasori walked back to his house witch was a few miles away from were the fight took place. Getting to his home he placed his jar and sword by his mate. He washed up a bit then ate some ramming. after he ate he went into his back yard with his sword to practice "you were to slow today" he thought before he begun his usual drills.

Not Approved.

You have not copied the code for the template. Also, this is obviously a Gaara clone, and I will not have that on the site. We have a clan for this ability, so if you want to use Gaara's jutsu, then use that clan. You cannot list all of your jutsu, you must create them in the provided template. The special Characteristic you have is not going to happen. I suggest using the ones that are already made. And if you wish to make one be sure to use the template. And lastly please, fix up the grammar.
