The Hyuuga Clan
The Hyuuga clan were one of the founding noble families of Leaf village. The clan itself is said
to be the ancestors of the Uchiha clan who possess the bloodline of the Sharingan eye. Each clan member possess the "Byakugan"
or "White Eye." When the "Byakugan" is activated, the clan member gains an extra-sensory perception, which gives them penetrating
sight and telescopic vision. This allows them to see the internal chakra circulation system in other beings. This vision also
grants the member a near 360° view of their surroundings. The higher the skill of the clan member, the further the distance
from which they can sense incoming attacks. Unfortunately the vision does have a weakness, a small blindspot that extends
outwards from their upper back.
The clan uses this ability in conjunction with their own chakra creating the Juuken
(gentle fist) fighting style. By focusing the chakra to their finger tips, they can press the tenketsu or chakra pressure
points of their opponents body. When the finger nears the tenketsu the chakra is forced out, collasping the targetted tenketsu
for a period of time. The tenketsu serve as the connectors and exit points for the chakra pathways. So when they are stopped
by the Hyuuga clan member, the ninja greatly loses his or her ability to utilize their chakra for Jutsu.
powers lead to internal strifes within the family. Because the eye grants such a unique and powerful ability, the clan became
possessive and over-protective of it. Seeing only the main family as worthy users and inheritors of the eye, the heads of
the clan began to place restrictions on those branch family members not in power. What resulted were two Hyuuga lines, the
powerful main family who would represent the line, and the branch family who were directed to protect the main family and
bear the cursed seal.
seal is placed on the foreheads of branch family members. It serves as a means to protect the secrets of the Hyuuga Byakugan
eye. If the branch family member was to ever betray the main family or be killed in battle, the seal would be activated to
destroy the body's secrets. Thus, forcing the branch family to further bow down to the will of the main family.
The Uchiha Clan
The Uchiha clan were one of the founding noble families of Leaf village. The clan itself is said
to be descended from the Hyuga clan who possess the bloodline of the Byakugan eye. Because their clan possessed the Sharingan
or "Wheel Eye," the Uchiha excelled at being able to read and fend off attackers. This made them prime candidates to help
found the Konoha Military Police Corps. The organization itself would go on to incorporate the Uchiha fan symbol into their
Select few members of the Uchiha clan possess the ability to activate the bloodline Sharingan eye. This Dou Jutsu
gives the wielder ability to read Gen Jutsu, Tai Jutsu and Nin Jutsu and conter them. As such, the clan member can view
a technique being performed and see the tricks and movements required to be able to complete it. However, the clan member
can not copy techniques which are unique to another bloodline. It also gives one the ability to cast Jutsu techniques only
possible by possessing the eye.
The clan itself is known for their ties to fire. For a clan ninja to be seen as an
adult, they must be able to utilize a Katon (Fire Element) Jutsu such as Goukakyuu no Jutsu. Thus is the tie between the manipulation
of fire and the mind of an Uchiha member.
