Hoshigakure




Hoshigakure
(星隠れの里, Hoshigakure no Sato; Literally meaning "Village Hidden Among
Stars") was introduced during the Star Village filler arc. It is
located in the Land of Bears, and is one of the lesser-known Shinobi
Villages in the Naruto Universe. Hoshigakure was formed sometime after
a strange meteorite, which the inhabitants called the "star", struck
its location 200 years earlier. No trees or plants could grow around
the vicinity after it landed. Information gathered from the villagers
suggests that the village can't have been founded much sooner than
Konoha was. Its leader is the Hoshikage (星影, Star Shadow), although the
leader is a Kage in name only. The other villages do not recognize
Hoshigakure as an equal, nor is there any ninja truly worthy of the
title.

The meteorite itself was not that large, but it emitted a
chakra-enhancing radiation. The First Hoshikage was able to devise a
training method to allow the ninja in the village to harness the power
of the star, thus allowing the ninja to gain supernatural chakra
levels. The technique used to harness this power is the Mysterious
Peacock Method. Upon the development of the skill, the meteorite was
then set on top of an eagle's claw pedestal located inside of and at
the very center of the Star Ninja training dojo, which was constructed
for the very purpose of training future Hoshigakure shinobi. When this
technique is fully mastered, it gives the user almost unrivalled chakra
control, to the point where they can solidify it as a shield or create
wings for flight. The training was eventually forbidden by the Third
Hoshikage, after he realized the deadly toll the training took on those
doing it; the Star's intense radiation of chakra was too much for some
shinobi to handle, and thus their insides began to corrupt and their
organs to weaken, eventually leading to internal bleeding or organ
failure. Even if a ninja survived the training, the side effects would
eventually kill them. Only Natsuhi and Hotorubi, the parents of Sumaru,
managed to survive the training, and both died eventually. Regardless
of the terrible side effects, ninja from the Star Village were known
for their proud and persistent nature. The Third was assassinated by
Akahoshi, who became the substitute Hoshikage and reinstated the
training. Despite knowing what the star did, he decided to ignore the
effects in the hope of forcing the other villages to accept
Hoshigakure.
