Origins ― The Sarutobi Clan are the nobles of Ihaigakure, having bred some of the greatest warriors the nation has ever seen over the years and gained the respect and position they hold because of it. They have produced many renown members who have possessed positions of high authority.They are truly upper class, only bested by the Kazan clan and act as the second highest military group within the Land Hidden in Ash. Specializing with their clans ash hiden techniques at the higher skill levels, the Sarutobi clan is known to be formidable protectors of their nation, their fighting style developed in order to handle some of the greater threats that might befall their people. As nobles they are treated as the higher class within the nations borders and questioned by very few. Many of the higher ranking members spend their time as authority figures, delegating tasks to the countries industries and workers in order to keep things running.
Ability Description: The Sarutobi clan holds a proficiency over the fire element, their control over flames can be compared to those of the Kazan clan, this clan produces many prodigies within it's field as they're able to surprisingly manipulate a difficult nature as if it was on their finger tips. However the Sarutobi aren't just wielders of the fire nature, they use techniques passed down within their clan to empower their flames, these techniques are usually derived from gunpowder and ash.
Their gunpowder holds several abilities, it's main focus point is to control the battlefield, using the gunpowder the Sarutobi are able to render certain areas unsuitable for combat for their enemies which makes them a vital asset. With their ash techniques, they can effectively blind their opponents, otherwise the Sarutobi are quite versatile with their own set of skills and techniques making one different from the other as members of these clans continue to produce fire techniques to the world around them, many see them as a great source of innovation.
Drawbacks: The Sarutobi may have to be careful with their usage of gunpowder and ash as the techniques could just as well blind them if they aren't able to see within them, gunpowder may affect allies on the field.
