The Division of the Wu Clan

"On the Chinese continent, about 5000 years ago... When the old gods still dwelled in this land... It suddenly appeared, as if it were seeping out from the earth. It went on to slaughter without rest. It killed people, beasts, demons, and gods alike. Eventually its eyes were stained black by the blood of its victims. Its name was Wu Hei, the first Wu."
— The Origins of Wu Hei, compiled and redacted from the oral traditions of a certain region of China[1]


The Wu Clan ( (ウー) (イー) (ズー) , Ū-Īzū; "Wú-Yīzú") is a Chinese clan of assassins and the Asia Mainland progenitors to the Kure Clan.

About

The Wu are a 5000-year-old clan of assassins, whose origins are derived from a legendary man named Wu Hei, who was said to be a relentless killer whose eyes became black after absorbing the blood of his victims. According to Nikaido Ren, the Wu Clan makes up a part of the Chinese underground core. 1300 years ago, the original Wu Clan divided into three. These three would become the modern Wu Clan, the Japanese Kure Clan and the Westward Faction. The modern Wu Clan remained in China and still mantain a cordial relationship with their Kure relatives.

The Westward Faction ( (せい) 西 (せい) (はい) , Seisei-hai) is the name given to the Wu who migrated to the occident, in Europe and, through Bergmann's rule, they have evolved to develop a larger frame. For some reason, the Westward Faction seems to have a belligerent relationship with the mainline Wu and the japanese Kure Clan. Edward Wu was the leader of the Westward Faction, but since his death at the hands of Kure Raian along with four of the Wu Hei spares, his son Gilbert Wu became the new leader after a brief infighting against Edward's brother Howard Wu.

Wu Clan Techniques

Guihun

Guihun ( (グイ) (フン) , Guifun; lit. "Demon Spirit") is the Wu Clan's name for Removal. The technique allows the user to unleash their latent power by removing the psychological limits from their brain. Theoretically, anyone can remove their limits with this technique, but only the Wu and the Kure have bred for generations to unleash one's full strength without harming or killing one's self. The only known outsider who can use Guihun is Lu Tian, who was described as that one-in-a-million prodigy who can do so, though not without any physical consequence. Members from the Westward Faction have the added benefit of bulking up their already substantial muscles to an even greater degree.

Huisheng

Huisheng ( (フイ) (シュン) , Fuishun; lit. "Resurrection") is the "secret of secrets" of the Wu. This oral tradition was sealed away by both the Wu and Kure during the split, with only the Westward Faction still practicing it. The inculcation of the memories of a person into another person, Huisheng requires both a very young "connector" (or receiver) and a speaker who has a close blood relationship with them.

By telling every single event that happened in their lives repeatedly to their connector until their death, the speaker "brainwashes" the connector on a level where "the speaker's soul comes to dwell within the connector". It was through maintaining this connection for over 5000 years that Wu Hei lives on.

As it is more of a tradition than an actual ability, anyone can use it to transfer one set of memories to another vessel, such as Hayami Masaki, who is slowly connected to his deceased "brother" Meguro Masaki through it. There is also no set limit as to how many can receive a single individual's memories, though the speaker's personality may influence its practicality.

Ultimate Technique: Mount Tai North Star Eightfold Demolition Fist

The Wu Clan Ultimate Technique: Mount Tai North Star Eightfold Demolition Fist ( (ウー) () (びつ) () 泰山北斗八壊奏 Ū-shi Bitsugi: Taizan Hokuto Hachikaiken) is an ultimate technique that consists of eight, powerful consecutive blows in quick succession.

Zhong Gui

Zhong Gui ( () (うき) , Shōki) is a form of double block, with the user protecting his head from attacks both from the front and from the back simultaneously.

Notable Members

Founder

Wu Hei
Wu Hei, the first Wu.PNG

Wu Hei ( (ウー) (ヘイ) , Ū Hei) was the first Wu and the ancestor of the Wu Clan and the Kure Clan.

He mysteriously appeared 5000 years ago and killed every being on his path until his eyes were stained black by his victims' blood. His memories and identity were housed by five members of the Westward Faction, including Edward Wu.

By Edward's admission, Wu Hei despises working under others, which mostly prohibits Huisheng to the current head. Of course, to prevent the memory of Wu Hei from ceasing, spares are needed.

He, along with Edward and Solomon, engaged Kure Raian in a three on one duel. In the ensuing fight, he was ran through from behind by Kure Erioh with a sword, but managed to stay alive. Shortly afterward, he was pierced in the throat before getting split in half by the same sword, finally killing him.

Fabio's brother was killed by Kure Erioh, causing Fabio to hold a grudge against him. Fabio also killed Wu Xing's uncle.

Fabio's Guihun release percentage was 100%.

He, along with Edward and Fabio, engaged Kure Raian in a three on one bout, before facing Raian alone after Fabio's death and Erioh and Xing's arrival. He was soon knocked back to Edward's side by a powerful strike from Raian, where he resumed the fight alongside him. After Edward downed all three of their opponents, he reprimanded Solomon for not being strong enough, giving him a knife to finish them off. Erioh then proceeded to decapitate Solomon with his own knife, ending his life.

Solomon had the habit of belittling every relative of his if they died.

However, he was opposed by Gilbert and his allies, forcing him to enter a brief deadly battle for dominance over the Clan. In the ensuing fight, Howard was killed by Gilbert.

In contrast to the other vessels for Wu Hei he favored the usage of a sword on a rope in combat, spinning it so fast it even suppressed the sound of whistling wind allowing it to take foes by surprise.
