.: Minor Clans Information :.Clan name: Koiwai Clan
General Information: A clan of horsemen from the Land of Iron. They're excellent marksmen but are also quite adept at wielding battle axes. Their horses are their lives, and they train on them from a very young age. The clan is quick to act and decisive - they want, above all else, to preserve their way of life. They are rumoured to tend towards apathy and ruthlessness, though this is mostly speculation, as the clan generally keeps to itself. Most clan members are quiet and thoughtful, they are famous for the expressionless masks they wear in battle and the long (usually red) hair that streams behind them as they ride in. They are not outright warlike, but they are not pacifistic or peaceful in nature either.
Appearance: Koiwai clan members usually have dark (wine) red hair, and green eyes. Other hair colours include brown (especially reddish brown), auburn, and black. No
.: Hanabusa Clan Information :.Clan Name: Hanabusa

Clan Colours: navy blue
Land of Origin: Village Hidden by Clouds (Kumogakure)
Current Clan House Locations: Village Hidden by Clouds (Kumogakure)
Background: The Hanabusa are a proud, large clan residing on the outskirts of Kumogakure. They keep almost entirely to themselves out of vanity, though they are fond of forging alliances because of the power they can bring. Status is supremely important to them, along with physical beauty. They have always been a very superficial clan, who like to present a "perfect" image to those aroud them, but in recent years, conflict has arisen within the clan between those who choose to maintain the old way of thinking and those who want a change.
The introduction of new philosophies greatly upset Hanabusa Susumu, who had one of the bloodiest reigns in Hanabusa history as
.: Komatsu Clan Information :.Clan Name: Komatsu

Clan Colours: light green and silver
Land of Origin: Village Hidden in the Snow (Yukigakure)
Current Clan House Locations: Village Hidden in the Snow (Yukigakure)
Background: The Komatsu are a large clan located in Yukigakure, and have had a relatively peaceful history, which has led to a strong, prosperous, and well-regarded clan.
Gender Roles: Women are generally raised to stay within the domestic sphere, but if they display an affinity towards combat, they are trained to utilise their talent. Clan members are raised in a way that strengthens their most prominent strength. Men are generally regarded as stronger and boy babies regarded as more important, but the women are treated well otherwise.
Clan Abilities: The Komatsu have no Kekkei Genkai or clan-specific jutsu, but they are supremely disciplin
.: Tanizaki Clan Information :.Clan Name: Tanizaki nomads
Clan Symbol: a flame, to represent their most prevalent clan ability
Clan Colours: deep red, burnt orange
Land of Origin: unknown
Current Clan House Locations: slightly outside the Village Hidden in the Leaves (Konohagakure)
Background: The Tanizaki nomads have been on the move for a long time - due to their non-sedentary nature and refusal to tie themselves down to any one village or people, they are often regarded with suspicion and mistrust. Much of their history is a mystery. They never settle down permanently, though they have been in the Konoha area for many years. When they're not on the move, they tend to temporarily stay near villages (in order to barter and have easier access to supplies), but in a forest or something of the like, where they remain out of the way. The nomads have been around for many years, but were not known as the Tanizaki until Tani, son of Zaki of th
.: Kahaya Clan Information :.Clan Name: Kahaya
Clan Symbol: a hawk, it's a nod to the legend of their foundation. They say the hawk spirit favoured one of the prominent figures of the clan legends, Kahaya Shoji, and he made the clan symbol a hawk as tribute to her.
Clan Colours: red, gold
Land of Origin: Land of Fire, Village Hidden in the Leaves (Konohagakure)
Current Clan House Locations: Village Hidden in the Leaves (Konohagakure)
Background: The Kahaya were an offshoot of the larger Hanabusa clan -- they originally consisted of members of the Hanabusa that were sent to a different land in order to expand their influence. However, the distance between the two parts of the clan and having to adapt to a different land led to fundamental differences in their thought systems. These differences led to conflict between the two parts of the then-Hanabusa clan, and an eventual internal war (spearheaded by the 'adopted' Kahaya Sh
To depression, for creating days without endWake up to the realization that you've been awake
for seconds, minutes, hours.
You've been awake in this warm, dark room
and you don't know how long it's been
but now you're conscious
and it starts again--
the pain, strong and steady, in your chest.
You gain consciousness in this too warm morning
and your thoughts whir in endless loops
because it's either that or face the weight in your chest.
Light breaks though the window, soft and unwelcome
but you take it as a reluctant gift--
a new distraction from the feelings awake in your chest.
Awake, but not conscious.
So you think yourself in circles a little while longer
waiting for those quiet pains
(the constant reminder)
to gain consciousness.
