Clan Name: 雪一族, Yuki Ichizoku
Location: Shimogakure no Sato
Elements: Suiton, Fuuton, Hyoton
Origins ― The Yuki Clan are Shimogakure's leaders, having been moulded by the cold winters they've had to endure since being cast out into the harsh conditions they live in. Their leader remains distant and jaded over the falling out they've had with the clans that now make up Ihaigakure, bitter about the fact that his people are left struggling to survive whilst those in the wealthier nation live a life of peace and prosperity. The Yuki have grown to use the very thing they struggle against, the cold winters that meet them endlessly. Their proficiency with using the ice release has made them a formidable force that has risen to the top of Shimogakure, making them skilled and powerful warriors who lead the charge in ensuring those within Shimogakure survive the blizzards that tear at their lands relentlessly.
Kekkei Genkai Name:
• Advanced Nature: Ice Release (氷遁, Hyoton)
― Accessible Forms: Ice (氷) Snow (雪)
Kekkei Genkai Description: Ice Release is a combined nature transformation which is the kekkei genkai of the Yuki clan, It allows the user to freely create and manipulate ice by simultaneously combining wind and water-based chakra. When the user releases their chakra, the surrounding vicinity becomes cold enough to cause snow to fall. Those who possess this power are members of the Yuki clan, individuals of this clan are proficient users of this advanced nature, most are able to use it at quite a young age, many believe wielders of this power to be the pure embodiment of Shimogakure.
The Yuki generally use their techniques to freeze their opponents, entrap their mobility and secure the playing field to their liking, this involves filling the area with snow which may have affects on the opponents around them or the techniques. Fighting a member who possesses this power in close proximity is like throwing yourself to a expert taijustuist with no formal training or touch up on your reflexes, the Yuki strive as a frontlines fighter which makes them a terrifying foe.
Drawbacks: This nature has no drawbacks.
