Ashton: Reaper Death Scythe by XD-385 Ashton: Reaper Death Scythe by XD-385
This was drawn by my good friend :iconxehta13: A very good shot, man. :hug: Due to the deletion of Ashton's ninja chart last year, I will include the same information with the same type of grid used in the official Naruto series databooks.

If there are any ninja arts I've left out (except for the most basic ones) please let me know.

The Reaper Death Seal is a fearsome summoning technique that only the bravest of shinobi would dare to use. Performing the necessary hand signs would summon not a living entity, but the very spirit of death itself. Due to the fact that the summoned creature is not alive, a sacrifice of blood is not needed. Normally, the spirit of death is visible only to the one who summons it. However, should the user offer a sacrifice of blood, the spirit of death will become visible to all, making it an effective means to intimidate or terrify the enemy, thus increasing the success rate of the sealing. The primary means of the Reaper Death Seal is for the user to extract the soul of the enemy, which is then devoured by the spirit of death itself. Upon successfully sealing the enemy's soul, the user of the jutsu is branded with a black seal on the abdomen. However, the cost of the jutsu is great as the soul of the sealer is devoured as well, ending its life and locking it in an eternal cycle of hatred with the sealed enemy, forever ending the chance of obtaining a peaceful afterlife.

The spirit of death initially takes on the form the people of the Far East see it as. The death god, Shinigami. However, as death is universal, the spirit of death can change form depending on the summoner's will, ranging from the Grim Reaper, to Shiva, to Anubis.

Along with performing the basic Reaper Death Seal, there is a more advanced variation of the jutsu where the user wields the power of death in its own hands. The first person to perform this feat was Ashton Redford Crimson during his epic duel against the revived Yamata no Orochi. In an attempt to acquire enough power to rival that of the dreaded serpent, Ashton had the spirit of death shift forms, from that of Shinigami to the form of the Grim Reaper. During the process, Shinigami's small tanto sword became the reaper's scythe, known as Thanatos. Ashton then took the death scythe in hand, literally holding the power of death in his very palm. As if to further emphasize his control over the powers of death, his wings of rainbow flames became completely solid while covered in black feathers, lending him the visage of a raven.

Taking the power of death in ones hands grants the user the ability to perform feats that only death itself could do. One such action is to open a rift to Oblivion, allowing the user to send the soul of the enemy straight into a foul realm of despair where salvation is absolutely impossible, even by the most supernatural means. However, the cost of of this technique remains the same as the basic Reaper Death Seal. The user's soul is devoured by the spirit of death once the deed is done, ending the summoner's life. The only thing that spared Ashton from this fate was the tearful intervention of his eight servants, who miraculously persuaded the spirit of death to spare him.

As he took the Grim Reaper's scythe in hand to carry out the jutsu, Ashton named this modified technique the Reaper Death Scythe.

hmm. I am writing a story in which Ash's (Satoshi's) real father is Itachi Uchiha. His elements in that story were Fire and Lightning because A) EVERY Uchiha has a fire element, and B) Lightning reminded me of his starter and best friend-Pikachu.

Well, it's a pretty nice set of details to the skill. Nicely written.

Quite unrelated to a certain other Reaper... Though it does remind me it's been ages since I drew her.
