As far as religion is concerned Konowari has adopted the ancient wind God Vāyu, and the ancient illusion Goddess Māyā as their own. Historically Vayu and Maya are Deva’s linked to Indra as half-siblings. Together it is thought within the Konowari that their powers are derived from these Gods and that they are responsible for bringing the clan together as one.
Location: Sun Village
Status: Open (Sun Village only)
The Konowari Clan sprang up around the time of the second Nikkoukage. They began as two separate factions; one having an innate sense of illusions with an affinity for the Yin Release, and the other with destructively powerful Wind Release techniques. Both factions were desert dwellers and managed to survive in this harsh environment by adapting to the arid climate. Relations between the two factions started off rocky. They would frequently enter conflict with one another. That was until the Invasion of Foreign Assets; an event known by all from the Konowari. It consisted of several high-profile clan’s seeking new land to call their own. The only trouble with this is their infringement upon the land already possessed by these desert dwellers whom had yet to pair with the nearby Sun village. Once at constant war with one another; now united against a common foe. One faction which consisted of the Yin Release users were led by a woman, Metsumi Kono. The other faction of Wind users conversely, was led by a man named Metsuki Wari. After countless battles with one another; Metsumi held a private meeting with Metsuki, and the two ended up falling in love with one another. Hesitant to break the news, and privately having an affair; the two factions were forced to fight side by side for the sake of survival. This constant unity in battle went on to form the Konowari Clan.
After forming this coalition Metsuki, and Metsumi were married with all their clan present. The bloody history between the two factions was amended. Both would become the respective leaders of the Konowari clan, establishing a monarchy rather than democracy. Only those who are descended from those two can become clan leaders or hold any position of power. It was after this that Metsuki would meet with the respective leaders of the Sun village thereby becoming a part of the village. Konowari members are also capable of summoning either Elephants, Owls, or Gazelles which is derived from Vayu and Maya’s godly mounts, however, are still only limited to one contract. Recognizing a Konowari clan member is quite simple due to their silver hair in men; and white hair in the women. Established in the arid desert; most members of this clan are darker skinned; though lighter skinned members do manifest.
