Taki - Ki Kinbaku

Share

In her early years as an apprentice, Taki showed great promise as a future demon hunter of the Fu-Ma clan. However, she was unsatisfied with her own KI manipulation for performing ninjutsu and secret arts. Knowing she should be far more capable then she currently was. Sensing her frustration, her master offered her a less conventional method of building better control of her KI and expanding her capacity. 


The art of Kinbaku had been in Japan for centuries and was designed to invoke certain responses from those tied. Mainly used on prisoners and done in such a way to create pain and discomfort. But it could also be done in such a way that invoked pleasure or a stronger connection in people.


It has been found when the body is put under great duress. The Human spirit will manifest in a physical form. Simply know as KI. The more the body is pushed past it’s limit, the more KI one can produce. Manipulating the Ki into something tangible is another matter entirely and usually requires intense concentration, which isn’t ideal when fighting demons.

It was indeed an unorthodox method for manipulating KI, but Taki couldn’t deny that it was effective. Having to use her KI to keep the blood from rushing to her head. In addition, with having to deal with the strain of the "mask", ropes, and humiliation of her exposure. She learned to block out these distractions to not only gain better control, but greater KI as well. 


I've been meaning to get this idea done for awhile. A big thanks to https://twitter.com/Rara_10tacles for bring this to life!
