Name: Hoikyousha - Renegade
Clan Titles: The Hoikyousha Clan have been called the following:
Perfect Weapons - The were called this because of there ability to make themselves into living, breathing, thinking, weapons of mass destruction which can adapt to almost any situation. They were also called this because of there immense assassination skill and knowledge.
Ultimate Shields - They have been called this because of their durability, endurance, and the capability to turn themselves into a shield that can survive almost anything. They were also called this because when you fight a Hoikyousha you can hit him as many times as you like but you will only end up hurting your self.
Nature's Thieves - They were called this by religious people who believed in the Gods of Nature. They believed that the Hoikyousha stole from the Gods every time that they used Mergakonto even though the Hoikyousha clan also believed in the same gods and they were once Monks them selves.
Name: Mergakonto - ( To Merge or Fuse or Combine With )
Description:The user will be able to take the properties with just about any substance that comes in contact with their skin but it is commonly used with the hands and feet. When they do this, they can also manipulate theirs body physical structure to fit there needs.
Effects: When the user takes the properties of a substance, the user gains that substance's color, endurance, and strength. The user also takes the Substance's weight equivalent to their own natural body weight. They can also Manipulate there body structure to fit their needs on or off the battlefields to create weapons and shields or even basic things as keys.
Side-effects/weakness: When the user uses there ability they do not only take the substance's strength's but also its weakness's. This weakness is usually not a problem as the Hoikyousha change there substance's quickly before the enemy can catch on but this is still the Hoikyousha Clans greatest and only known weakness.
Scientific Reason: When a person uses Mergakonto they are actually opening almost invisible holes to their own DNA on any part of the body but the most holes are located around the hands and feet. These holes are a direct path to a persons DNA strains. When a persons DNA gets mixed with even one particle of foreign substance the entire body changes with the DNA strain. The Hoikyousha clan can take the properties of just about any substance because of this. The can Manipulate there bodily structure by Manipulating there new DNA/Substance mix.
The Following Video is from Spiderman 3 where Sand Man is created, this is the best Example of how the DNA changes. V
Name: Eijuu Mergakonto - (To Permanently Fuse with)
Description: Eijuu Mergakonto is the second and final stage of Mergakonto where the user takes the property of one substance permanently. They can no longer change between multiple properties but they have the greatest Mastery over that property possible and the benefits of it make it worth wild, but not all members achieve this. Only 5% of the 30% of the Clan that have the Mergakonto Kekki Genki can actually do this.
Effects: When a Hoikyousha clan member achieves Eijuu Mergakonto the substance they mostly use actually becomes part of the DNA permanently. They no longer need to touch the substance to take the property and they can manipulate there bodily structure much more easily, they also no longer have an equilavant weight ratio to the substance, there natural body weight stays the same. They also gain personal special techniques. They also gain the substances strengths such as a permanent hardness or the ability to reform.
Comparisons/Examples/Likeness's: Think Greed from FMA or Gaara Sand Armour or even Suigetsu. Like when the FMA hits Greed in the face but the substance appears and the attack had no real effect. Gaara Sand Armour, the Sand abosrbs the impact from the blows. Suigetsu got hit by Karin and his head transformed into Water then reformed it self.
Side Effects: There is no real way to countereact the substance's weakness, this is the only weakness to Eijuu Mergakonto. There has also been some show with in the clan that Eijuu Mergakonto changes the members personaility and a few physical traits depending on the substance.
