Ryuu was watching from the cliff, overlooking the village and the battle that underwent. He was already too late - it had already begun.
He received a tip from the Academy about his home village being pursued by an unknown force. They thought it would be most appropriate if they sent Ryuu to investigate, seeing as he was born there and more familiarised with it. Hesitantly, he accepted.
He leaped from the cliff and soared through the air towards the village. With the flick of his thumbs, the hilts from both swords ejected from their protective sheaths. He gripped both his swords and landed on the soil below him. It was time to do what he did best. He performed the singular handseal.
"Kage Bunshin no Jutsu!" (Shadow Clone Jutsu). Multiple copies of Ryuu appeared before him and joined the defence against the unknown force.
