This is the list of current clans available. This RP heavily encourages the use of these clans, though custom ones are welcome. Post the idea of a custom clan on the IMVU group page, and if it is approved a page for it will be created on the Wiki and it will appear on this list. As creating a clan is a slightly tedious process, most clans should be something truly unique, and not just a "Sharingan with the range of the Byakugan" type of thing.
Another important distinction to be made, kekkei genkai and hidden jutsu are not the same thing. Clans with a kekkei genkai associated with them are the only way to attain that kekkei genkai. Hidden Jutsu can be learned by members outside of the clan, however that is unlikely to happen unless the ability is trained in RP (Orochimaru's snake possesion jutsu is based off the Yamanaka's Mind Transfer jutsu). In order to gain hidden jutsu the user must first take the appropriate chakra nature, and then take a second feat that enables them to use those jutsu. Being a member of said clan allows your character to bypass these, as those two feats are simply granted to you upon character creation.
