Clan Logo

Clan History:
40 years before the second great Shinobi World War:The Reikon Yaiba clan was originally a group 3 of fanatical swordsman who wanted the ability to imbue their swords with the souls of strong deceased shinobi with hopes to increase the swords destructive ability. They attempted to put human souls into swords for almost 20 years before they were able to. To do so they contracted a talented man to guide the dead souls into the swords and then seal them in once they entered.

It worked, and the ability of the swords was increased tenfold. Not only did the dead persons elemental affinity follow them to the grave, it was engraved in the sword once they were sealed in. The sword having a soul also allowed the sword to grow with the swordsman, making it fit the sword owners abilities and needs.

Eventually they came to strong disagreements on what would be allowed in the clan. The most fanatical member of the beginning 3 revolted and killed the other two, and put their souls into his blades. After all, although he defeated them they were incredibly strong shinobi, and would make a great tandem with their 2 chakra affinities of Fire and Wind. The man who would become the first leader of the clan, Tokiji Jakazi took power and promised to make the clan powerful.

The clan grew and grew until it reached to over 100 members spread across three hidden villages (Mist, Rain, and Sand). The clan remained in the shadows due to the fact that putting unwilling souls into swords was strongly frowned upon by the government in all hidden villages. They managed to remain under the eyes of the government for a long while, but eventually they were ratted out by a former member who was expelled from the clan due to his insanity.

The Reikon Yaiba clan then become a rogue clan of swordsman for hire. They continued their practices, but were even more discreet about them than before, and only performed such soul sealings for their closest family members. The clan was now in chaos though, and the leader had no more power to lead the clan into the light. Their numbers decreased and decreased as they were hunted down as missing nin until the leader of the clan, Tokiji Mayato agreed that the clan would only use souls of deceased clan members in their swords. Some of the member returned to their hidden villages, others decided to take an opposing route.

This however caused a civil war within the clan. The two opposing parties were called the Kinnouka and the Kyuushin. The Kinnouka did not want to change the clans customs and intended to keep forcibly sealing souls of the dead into their swords. Going so far as to track down strong shinobi just to take their souls unwillingly after death. The Kyuushin believed in radical change and wanted to be able to return to their villages and have peaceful lives without being hunted down by the government and bounty hunters. This would eventually tear the clans reputation into the ground. People knew the difference between the Kinnouka and Kyuushin, but they always connected the two in their minds whenever the thought came up. Now forced into the open, the Kyuushin were looked down upon as one of the most corrupt clans in the shinobi world, and were hard pressed to find good jobs.

In the present day, the Kyuushin and Kinnouka are still at war. While the Kinnouka has decreased in population and the Kinnouka has increased, the most powerful members of the clan still reside in the Kinnouka and are gaining power much faster than the Kyuushin.

Clan's Secret Techniques or Bloodline traits:

Bloodline: Hane Yaiba (Feather Blade): All members born into the Yaiba clan possess and innate ability to handle swords. The weight of the sword does not effect members who inherit the bloodline. The weight of each sword is decreased between 25% and 75% of the actual weight while in the hand of a bloodline member, and this bloodline has no know negative effects. The percentage of weight it decreases is based on how strongly you inherit the bloodline. This effect is automatic as well, and can not be changed in any way shape or form with training or age. However, the weight remains the same in members who do not have this bloodline, and makes the swords of strong members of the clan nearly impossible to wield by anyone else.

Bloodline: Eye of Mayato: This is inherited by direct descendants of Mayato. The eye allows you to see through Genjutsu and you u can't be bluffed.

Sword Affinities: Every sword in the clan, possesses the strongest elemental affinity of the soul that is sealed within. This is the strongest element of the Reikon Yaiba clan, and what they are mainly known for. For example, if the soul that died was a Fire element user, then the sword would be able to light on fire without using any hand seals or chakra from the swordsman. The abilities of the sword and its affinity are wide ranged and different depending on each sword and its power. If you use a jutsu that matches the affinity of the soul, you don't need to make the hand seals for it. You gain a +1 bonus per 3 levels (max +6) to learn any ninjutsu of that element.

Chakra Transfer: The sword has a chakra pool equal to 1/4 of the users chakra pool. This Chakra is mainly used for the Sword affinity stated above, but it can also be used to heal the swordsman in dire situations where death is imminent at a rate of 2 HP per 1 CP spent by the sword. A sword running out of chakra does not effect it other than keeping it from using abilities that are chakra related. Basically it is reverted to a standard sword. The sword regains chakra at a rate equal to 1 CP/minute. You can also transfer your chakra to the sword at a rate of 1 for 1.

Evolving Blade: The Swords of the Reikon Yaiba clan evolve and grow up with the user. The sword has a preset amount of potential it can reach based on the power of the person that the soul was in before it died, but it is able to increasingly unlock that potential as the owner of the sword increases their strength. For example, an academy students sword could very easily be the size of a small knife, while a sennin's sword could reach the size of an adult male. Size is not automatically equal to the swords ability, but it is uually a good measure for the swords ability.

Soul Connection: From the instant when a member of the clan receives ownership of his sword through a ritual, their souls are intertwined. They can hear each others thoughts and feelings. They are able to tell each other things in battle, and that often leads to a strategic advantage. This also makes it so the sword will render itself useless to someone who attempts to wield it who is not the owner. They can deny a false owner in many ways, one way is to completely stop using chakra and make it's blade dull, another way is for the sword to use its elemental affinity to hurt the false owner. This however is not the case for the Kinnouka. Since the souls they put in their blades are not willfully there, the swords will often attempt to rebel against their owner, which can cause the death of the owner if not powerful enough to handle it.

Reikon Yaiba Sword Style: The Reikon Yaiba style is based on strong, and fast multiple strikes intended to decapitate the enemy. This style is extremely aggressive and is intended to keep the opponent on the defensive and not give them time to go on offense.

Clan Information:
-Population- C
The looks of clan members vary greatly. Their skin color varies from pale white to dark black due to there being no restrictions on who a clan member can mate with. They all retain one inherent trait though, they all have incredibly piercing eyes that look murderous no matter what the situation. All members also wear the clan logo shown at the top of the page on whatever shirt they have on. The logo is usually placed on the center back of the piece of clothing.

They also possess a tattoo on their body once they have intertwined their soul with their swords soul. It is a black dragon who is swirled around a black sword, this tattoo is always placed on the left side of the neck. The origins of this are unknown, it is a common tradition among the clan though.

Clan Tattoo:

Members who directly descend from Tokija Mayato tend to have darker skin and bigger builds. This is very few people though, and most people can not link their heritage due to the persecution of the clan. It is said that direct descendants receive the bloodline stronger than anyone else, and are able to react with their sword in ways not understood by the rest of the clan.

Due to not being able to attain strong positions in the shinobi world after the persecution of the clan, many members have decided to become blacksmiths due to their love for swords. They however do not perform the soul sealing ritual on swords for normal people which they do for clan members.

-Clan Founder-
Tokaji Mayato
Tokaji Mayato was a famous swordsman from the hidden village of grass. Few rivaled his ability to kill with the blade, and because of this he was known as one of the strongest shinobi in the world. He was often called the "Green Giant" because of his massive size, and his gigantic sword which was rumored to cut people in half vertically with barely any effort at all.

Mayato became annoyed with life in the village, and seeked to gain more and more power. He left the hidden grass village, but the village tried to hide this by saying that he was on an important mission so as to not tip off other nations that they were considerably weakened by his absence. During his travels he met 2 other incredibly strong swordsman names Hanzo Ko, and Ysube of the sand.

They all were looking for a way to gain power. They eventually turned to the thought of attaching souls to blades. They spent a good portion of their lives attempting to find a way to do this, and when they did find out, their power grew to inhuman magnitudes. The power went to their heads though, and when the thought to create a clan to increase their power in the shinobi world came up, they all wanted to be leader. Eventually they fought eachother for the rights, and they both fell to Tokaji Mayato.

Eventually Tokaji Mayato increased the clans size and made them a powerful figure in the shinobi world. Even he could not live forever. He died of old age 2 days after he reached the age of 67, passing on his legacy to his son Tokaji Jakazi.

He is worshiped as a deity by the clan, and his swords are placed inside a chakra protected glass case inside the main headquarters of the clan. Members frequently come to pray for guidance.

-Clan Politics-


  • Clan Leader

  • Council of 7

  • Senior Advisors

  • Everyone else

Your place in the clan is determined by strength and reputation. To be considered for the leader of the clan or council of 7 you must have inherited the bloodline. There is an unwritten law that the leader of the clan must be a direct descendant of Tokaji mayato as well. Once you join the council of 7 you have no chance of ascending to the rank of leader of the clan, this is to insure that no one joins the council of 7 with intentions of killing the leader to take his position.

The Senior advisors are the 15 most knowledgeable members of the clan, and are required to be above 45 years of age and 20 years in the clan. The advisors along with the council of 7 decide on all domestic related things that the leader has passed down to them. They are able to be over ruled by the leader if he feels strongly about the issue though.

The rest of the clan is respected based on reputation. If a young member of the clan has a strong reputation of defending the clan and is strong, he can easily be more respected than any of the senior advisors and some of the council of 7.

The only way to leave the clan is death, which is widely known and accepted among members. You may retire your sword, but you are still required to represent the clan in everything you do. You sign a blood pact to this when you join, or come of age. If you do leave, younger members are usually asked to track you down and kill you as a right of passage into the good graces of the clans leaders.

The clan is now restrictly relegated to the hidden village of sand. They have decided that there is the place that they are most free to do as the clan wishes without interruption.

-Clan Who's Who-

Kakazu Satoshi, strongest warrior of the Reikon Yaibu Clan (29)
The strongest member of the Reikon Yaibu clan, as well as the most loyal. He is a battle tested warrior who has done more missions for the clan than anyone else in history. He is being considered for interim clan leader if Jakazi dies before Ao comes of age.

Holy Crap!

I have an oven with a 'stop time' button. It's probably supposed to say 'stop timer' but I don't touch it, just in case.
