After the Fourth Great Shinobi World War ended, the world was experiencing a time of peace. The villages for once were able to live in relative harmony with one another as they rebuilt, and for once, all seemed to be well. The kage were able to live peaceful lives and soon began retiring, passing on the baton to the next generations. That is until an unknown virus infects the northern coast. The first to fall is the once powerful Raikage, Ay. While many thought this virus was a simple mutation of what may have well been the flu, no one would ever think of the destruction it would cause. Especially when it infected a certain Uzumaki Naruto.
With his death came the malice; with the malice came the destruction; with the destruction came the shinobi' revolt; and with the revolt came the sacrifices. The Bijuu became filled with malice that they sought to destroy the world. Shinobi sought a way to fight them and once again capture each of the Bijuu. Time passed, and a plan was devised. The Jinchuuriki would be sacrificed for the greater good of the world, and with the deaths of nine individuals, an uneasy peace began.
As time continued, the villages began to truly restructure. In a peace that would last 80 years after the downfall of the Bijuu, the world would see the creation of a great many things. Technology was beginning to take root and before long the blossoms that grew from the tree of the advanced mind would bear fruit. A many great things came to be. A railroad between the vast many nations. Mechanical limbs to replace lost ones. Radios that could reach between villages. Everything seemed to be becoming less reliant on the shinobi. Only the need for them never truly vanished. As with the growth of time, also continued the growth of malice.
This is a contract bound in blood, and as such, blood must be drawn by those who signed it in order to summon the spiders within. Biting one's thumb is usually the most common method.
PLACE OF RESIDENCE
While spiders reside all over the nations, even beasts of such immense proportions, the majority of these monsters can be found within the rice paddies of Oto no Kuni. However, their cousins have a breeding ground within Kusa no Kuni's lands as well.
Chimono has been described as the broodmother of her hive, and her appearance definitely shows for it. She is a spider with a body roughly the size of an elephant, with long reaching legs nearly ten meters in length. While her body is a slate gray in color, the broodmother bears a bright red carapace covering her face and fangs, a natural sign of her deadliness. Sparse wiry hair spots across the arachnid's body, and spear-like claws rest gracefully at the end of her massive legs. Upon her bulbous abdomen is a quarter-meter-long stinger, resting comfortably above her spinneret.
As with most of these spiders, Chimono has little display of what could be called a personality. She is responsive to the commands of her callers, and is especially protective of her brood. Aside from this, she bears an insatiable appetite, usually requiring to be fed every time she is summoned; unfortunately for her victims, her form of consumption is slow and rather tortuous.
STICKY SPIDER SILK
From her spinneret, Chimono can create and practically launch streams of incredibly adherent silk. This stream is nearly as powerful as a rushing river, knocking shinobi off of their feet and cocooning them in her weaponized webbing. In moments, the beast can splay out a cascading net large enough to catch an ox at its center, or even create an even larger wall of web as a temporary nest.
Given her gargantuan size, it's no surprise that Chimono's chitinous hide bears a durability to compensate. Shinobi who have faced the beast have compared her hardened exoskeleton to solid iron, as most shinobi tools fail to penetrate its protective surface. The same can be said of her fangs and claws, as both are as effective as spears and knifes respectively.
Within Chimono's fangs, and her characteristic stinger, is an inky black toxin that is produced within the round container that is her abdomen. This venom, once injected into one's blood stream, will work to drug both the muscles of the afflicted. Resulting almost immediately is a state of paralysis, one that can lasts minutes to hours depending on how much of her venom makes it into the target's system.
Chimono's kind is not like that of typical spiders, but instead one that normally bears a considerably short lifespan. In truth, her kind lasts only around a few days in total length, forcing hatchlings to mature moments after they are born into the world. When a broodmother is not present within a hive, one of these short-lived spiders will develop features akin to that of a queen bee's, turning the beast into a broodmother. Because of this, there is not one true 'Chimono', as the name is simply given to the hive's current broodmother.
It is the job of this broodmother to continually lay and hatch eggs from within her abdomen, spawning offspring in the dozens every few minutes. When summoned, the Hyagumo clan more often than not allows the beast to feed and breed rather than engage in direct combat. Her children, those called the Chibimo, will be deployed to attack and distract the opponent as the clan member fights, attacking the target from multiple fronts.
As with their mother, these young spiders possess a slate gray carapace covering their bodies. While much smaller than their parent, each Chibimo is still of a frightening scale compared to normal spiders; with abdomens the size of an adult male's fist, these arachnids could easily cover a person's face with their entire body were they to latch onto them. These creatures reach maturity straight from their hatching, ensuring that they remain this size all of their lives--that is, unless they become the next broodmother.
These spiders, whether just born or near death, have a simplistic mindset; to eat, and follow orders. They do not question absurdities within their environments, responding to stimuli as a machine would. When left without a command, it seems these arachnids naturally gather around their broodmother, as if finding comfort near her massive form.
These spiders are large enough to catch birds and even cause some serious harm to people, but they are usually nothing dangerous to even those of Genin rank. To compensate for this weakness, these spiders instinctively release strings of webbing when approached by danger. This ensures that, even if the spider were to die, the attacker may be caught in their webbing and left open for the rest of the hive in vengeance. Thus, those that dare to engage with the spiders in close range combat risk being bound in the process of defeating the arachnids. Otherwise, if allowed, these spiders will instinctively try to spray the enemy with a weak stream of web; while nonthreatening on its own, a single spider can be made much deadlier when coupled with ten or more of its siblings.
Given how little and insignificant the chakra signatures of these creatures are, it is not uncommon for clan members to summon them from their hive in the dozens without spending all too much chakra. Albeit, in a long-term fight, it would be more cost effective to one's stamina to simply summon Chimono and have her make the Chibimo swarms herself.
