Jashinist, or belong to a Jashinist Sect (e.g "Orthodoxy")Parent Technique:
The fabled ritual of Jashin's followers, said to grant immortality of both the mind and body, has been preserved in the bowels of St. Memori's Cathedral. This ritual can only be placed on a subject by the highest authorities of the Church. The exact mechanics of the ritual are a closely guarded secret, but it involves inscribing the circled-triangle of Jashin on the Follower's forehead with blood. Recovered surviving texts reference altars, while artworks depict different iterations, suggesting the technique has evolved over time.
Jashin's blessing will imbue the body with profound levels of physical stamina and constitution. The Follower will be virtually unable to die from most causes. The ritual allows them to survive normally fatal injuries, surviving even dismemberment and decapitation
(retaining the ability to speak and control their limbs after severing). Unfortunately, the body will still experience pain, but the most devout followers relish it. Jashinist's also are gifted extremely fast regeneration, recovering from normally fatal injuries very quickly, barring dismemberment.
The Ritual grants the Jashinist a permanent +2 Tier boost to Constitution, and physical stamina (Coordination or Speed?
).In turn, the Jashinist receives a level of indestructibility, and can no longer be killed via physical injury, including dismemberment, decapitation, blood-loss, internal trauma, explosions, etc. Immortality is passive, and does not require upkeep, unless using Regeneration. For a large amount of chakra (30), the Jashinist can trigger regeneration, recovering from most physical injuries (except dismemberment and decapitation). Jashinism also allows access to Jashinist "Curse Techniques" (Including "Curse Technique: Death Controlling Possessed Blood) and allows them to register Customs in this area.Curse Techniques:
Lord Jashin blesses his faithful with unnatural abilities, so long as they take something from their opponent's in return, and suffer in his name. Curse Techniques harm the enemy by inflicting a curse. Blood is a common vehicle for Curse Techniques (Death Controlling Possessed Blood
, and Body Controlling Manipulated Blood
), however records suggest there are additional avenues (Blood, Bone, Flesh, Chakra, Organs, Items, etc. ). Curse Techniques operate by seizing something from the opponents body, and using it as a medium to create a link between them and the caster. This area of Jutsu is very poorly understood by the broader Shinobi world. These techniques are subject to their individual rules and restrictions.
Costs 1,000 Exp to unlock, + Granted by Jashinist authority. Weaknesses:
Jashinist's blessed by this ritual cannot die or be killed by conventional means. Unfortunately this means the most agonizing
methods available can dispose of them.
Dismemberment, and breaking the body into pieces will neutralize them. Regeneration does not affect severed limbs (e.g cannot regrow or re-attach a limb). The most effective weakness of course, is to fully dismember and decapitate them, ensuring they cannot regenerate and slowly starve to death. Jashinist's can still be sealed, or contained within barrier-ninjutsu. They can also be defeated through malnutrition and dehydration and likewise they can still be drowned and suffocated. Draining a Jashinist of their chakra will kill them as well. .
Strong corrosive substances (e.g Chemistry, Boil and Lava) that can out-speed the regeneration can effectively neutralize regeneration, but will not kill them. Other unorthodox methods include freezing/petrifying/crystallization followed by shattering the body. Dust Release's atomizing will completely disintegrate the body and overpower this technique (naturally).
Interestingly, Chinoike blood techniques interact strangely with this technique. The cursed nature of this technique forcefully rejects the Sakon-Ukon Kekkei Genkai, and similar abilities. Jashinist's cannot receive Cursed Seals or Tailed Beasts.
