During the earliest days of man, three tribes formed upon three mountain peaks each overlooking the Naka River. Each of the tribes fought for control of the River and its valuable resources. For centuries these clans fought, thousands upon thousands of bodies were piled up over the years. Eventually, the bodies counted too many to bury so a ritual was held at the formation of each full moon. where the Three clans would gather and send the departed down the Naka River to be carried to the afterlife. Despite this one sign of peace between the clans, the battles continued and whenever two of the clans met blood was sure to follow.
One summer a heatwave struck the three mountains and lasted for months. The snow on the peaks melted and washed the clan's shelters down into the river valley, clansmen died not from war but from exhaustion trying to work the fields, and one day the Naka River Valley dried up. Each of the clans had an elder who had mastered their Chakra and had proven themselves in combat. These elders held a secret meeting to discuss the current state of the clans of the three peaks. A deal was struck, the war would end in order to survive the brutal summer. Unfortunately, war for the clans was not a simple choice, it was a way of life and the only way they knew. Rage and disdain flowed deep within each of the clansman blood. Murders and brawls were commonplace in this new settlement and the elders knew a simple treaty was not enough if they wanted their people to survive the calamity which had struck. If the clans were to survive more drastic measures had to be unleashed.
The elders once again met during the burial ceremony, during which the clansmen were now burying their comrades under the river bed, in hopes that the water would once again return to the Naka to carry them off. The elders decided that war could only be stopped if the old wounds of war were first washed away. For the next month, the elders drained their chakra until they were near the point of death in order to release their people from the specters of war. Eventually, when the physical bodies of the elders had far surpassed their breaking point the elders discovered a different chakra form which was created primarily from their spiritual energy. The elders released a jutsu so powerful it pulsated through the River Valley affecting every citizen enclosed by the three mountain peaks. This Yin Release Jutsu was known as "Risetto" and was quickly hidden away under the mountains so it could never be used again. This long-range genjutsu had not only wiped the minds of all the clansmen but replaced the memories with new ones. Old enemies had become brothers and sisters and those who had died were washed away once the river's water returned, just as easily as their memories had been destroyed.
Those who remained became the Hiruzen Clan which still remains as one of Konoha's oldest families. The story of the elders was maintained in their offspring and carried through the generations known only by the clans highest ranking members. Although many of the clans strongest members have passed on during the Great Ninja Wars the clan is on the rise with the newest generation. The Hiruzen Clan prides itself on its deception and cunning utilizing its jutsu to confound and mislead opposition. The Hiruzen clan now lends its ninja to the Konohagakure Intelligence Division. The Hiruzen are known for their ability to retrieve information no matter the cost and their genjutsu torture techniques which have yet to kill a captive before retrieving the required intel.

We wanted to make a clan with a cool story that players could join and build a story of their own. We are looking for active players who want to make a ninja of their own, with its own personality and backstory. Having a clan in Nin can be a great experience and we expect all members to assist and protect each other whenever the need arises. If you have any questions please contact @Jiroubou Hiruzen Or @Yin Hiruzen. This post will continue to be updated in the future with Ranks and Events for the clan.
