Life abhors complacency and before heading off to Konohgakure for the chuunin exams Asami Miyamoto was as complacent as could be. She had two loving parents, a few good friends, and strong village to smooth out the bumps of life. Yes, by all accounts, the young girl lived a charmed life that anyone could be envious of.
Konohagakure changed all that.
She came from her trip abroad back scarred, battered, and—most shockingly—parentless. Traveling to the mainland on a routine business trip, Kenshi and Ai Miyamoto's ship went astray in a summer storm of unprecedented scale. Asami only learned of their disappearance when she came home to an empty house. In a matter of weeks, her life went from perfect to pitiful.
The young girl fell into despair and buried herself in one of Kirigakure's libraries. She didn't particularly enjoy books, but the library was the best place to go if one wanted to avoid human contact. Eventually, however, sobbing into her arms at a desk became less and less comforting. So, for perhaps the first time in her life, the chuunin turned to the pages of a book to sedate her mind.
One book soon became many and the girl learned more and more about the nature of space and time. Her knowledge was by no means complete, but soon she learned of the universe's many dimensions and the possibility of alternate selves. It wasn't much, but it gave her hope that one day she could see her parents again and so, through trial and error, she developed this jutsu.
Much to her dismay, it did not allow her to once more embrace her parents, but it did give her something else she never had, siblings. Siblings born from the sorrow and loneliness of a small kunoichi and her rudimentary understanding of the human soul gleaned from her use of the the Soul Expulsion jutsu
---What it does:
Thousands of parallel dimensions exist in the shinobi world each with their own set of inhabitants. Indeed, while the landscapes of each may vary greatly, the one universal constant is the human soul. Existing across countless dimensions the soul transcends the barriers of space and time creating a link between certain beings. This link, the soul link, is what this jutsu manipulates to bring other beings into the shinobi realm. The user effectively rips a being they are linked to from their home dimension and brings it to their own. These beings are often very much like the one who pulled them into the shinobi world in appearance, but their personalities can vary greatly. Creation of Living Clones:
Creation of a single 'clone' requires 1000 words of intense concentration as the user allows space-time chakra to seep out from their body and into the fabric of space and time costing 200 ap [can not be done in a combat thread]. Then, following the beacon of their own soul in another's body, they seek out and spirit away one of their alternate selves from their dimension. Appearing in a flash of brilliant light, these clones become part of the user's home dimension upon completion of this jutsu. The beings 'created' in this way are completely autonomous having their own thoughts, emotions, and dreams. Interestingly, however, one will find that each 'clone' has its own unique chakra signature.
All the special technique guidelines around living clones [LCs] apply to the creation of these clones and this technique,
Sharing a soul link, these 'clones' and the user of this jutsu have the ability to communicate mentally in real time. There are no range restrictions on this communication.Emergency Exit:
The pull of one's home dimension is always present. Normally, the initial ritual used to bring the 'clones' into existence is enough to keep them from fading. However, if the user of this technique elects to, they may loosen their grip on these 'clones' and allow their home dimension to reclaim them. This causes the 'clone' to fade away into nothingness at Asami's RT for a cost of 50 ap to her. Once this is done the 'clone' may not re-enter the same thread it faded from under any circumstances. Instead, Asami must summon them back with the same ritual detailed above.Character Specific:
