Abilities

D-Rank Shadow Step: By channeling shadowy chakra all about their body and moving in a particular rhythm, the user can cause a series of shadowy after images to move around themselves. By moving subtly back and forth, this creates an array of obscuring motion before and after their chosen path, which makes it ideal for deception. 

 

C-Rank Shadow's Slash: The basic form of this style of assassination, by coating the assassin's weapon in shadow chakra they are able to cut the shadow of an opponent. This damage translates to the owner of the shadow's physical form as if they had been struck by the blade in the same location as their shadow.

 

B-Rank Shadow Assassin: A more advanced form of assassination which builds on the principle of the Shadow Slash ability. By focusing chakra into their shadow instead of their sword, the user's shadow can damage an opponent's shadow or their physical body in the same manner as the Shadow Slash.

 

A-Rank Umbral Trespass: A third form of assassination in which the user channels their own shadow into a weapon. When the weapon strikes a surface a small fragment of the assassin's shadow will remain behind in waiting and will jump out at any enemy shadows or physical bodies, mimicking the shape of of the blade. The blade can move one foot from whatever surface it is on and after 3 posts of dormancy will fall apart. These attacks move with one rank increased speed.

 

S-Rank Autonomous Shadow: The most secretive assassination method of the style. With this the user can cause their shadow to make singular motions of attack without moving their body. The shadow moves at two ranks higher in speed, but otherwise does damage in the same manner as Umbral Trespass, striking at either the opponent's shadow or physical body. The shadow can rise from the ground or remain upon the surface but cannot be reshaped.

"The most secretive assassination method of the style. With this the user can cause their shadow to make singular motions of attack without moving their body. " - This has decent potential
