Clan History: One of the founding clans of Chusekigakure, the Yuki clan is known for their prowess with ninjutsu and an advanced element called Ice Release. One of the most well known Yamakage was a Yuki clansman. For hundreds of years, the clan had lived in the harsh mountain environment of Mountain Country- though if this was a result or a cause of their kekkei genkai, Ice Release, is still unknown. They are known for their quickness and aptitude with water and wind release techniques. The Yuki clan is matriarchal, the position of clan head being passed down from mother to daughter. When not on the battlefield, the clan are talented artists. Many of the textiles found in Chusekigakure are of Yuki clan make.
Clan Traits: -One-Handed Seals: The Yuki clan train their children in the use of one-handed hand seals from a young age. All jutsu with hand seals cast by the user can be performed with one hand, while the other hand does something else. -Yuki Clan Taijutsu: Users of this clan trait have expert knowledge of human anatomy and pressure points, and can target these points accurately in combat. Limbs and other body parts targeted by this technique will be paralyzed for one post upon contact. Paralysis in this manner ignores a foe's durability. -Medicinal Prowess: Similar to the Yuki Clan Taijutsu, extensive knowledge of the human body allows the user to treat a tertiary medical specialty as a secondary specialty instead.
