  1. Introduction
    Located in the suburban area west of the (new) Tokyo the 7th Tokyo Shinmeiryuu School is a small school of the Shinmeiryuu martial arts, a powerful martial arts whose best of the best can compete for space amongst the top fighters of the Inter-Dimensional Space.

    What would usually be a ordinary Shinmeiryuu school is plagued by one hard to get rid of problem which was not solved with the construction of a new dorm. This problem are the several dozens of Otaku students of various kinds that now occupy the old dorm of the school and not only drag tournament results of the school but also are impossible to remove as regular at least several of them are children of influential or rich people, as well as the support of the school's vice-president, who is called only "Vice-President" and the eternal repeater studet known only as "Second" to the other students.

    Now are you one of the Otaku of the old dorm? A normal student of the new dorm? Or someone in between struggling between being normal or Otaku?

    Location (open)

    The 7th Shinmeiryuu School is located roughly in the center of the north edge of the Fuji Volcano Protected Area and the school grounds include a hill almost 500 meters tall.

    Bellow is the map of IDS Tokyo. The red line is the boundary Tokyo City while yellow borders represent the borders of the five suburbia of the city, four named after the direction in which they lay from Tokyo and the Yokai city with is primary inhabited by Yokai and demons.
    The green circle is the Mount Fuji National and Heritage Park, the core of the Fujji Volcano Protected Area.

    The pink area is the neighborhood in which the 7th Tokyo Shinmeiryuu School is located.
    In the IDS Tokyo is inhabited by 1 billion people, thank to most of the city being made up of skyscrapers several kilometers tall and most traffic being "flying cars". The suburbs house additional half a billion people.

    Totally Japan has around 13 billion inhabitants, almost all of them live in the massive Nippon Megalopolis that stretches from northern Hokkaido to southern Kyushu.

    Bellow is a map of the grounds of the 7th Tokyo Shinmeiryuu School.
    Light green is mostly grass and brushes while dark green is forest. Blue is water and black are buildings. The light gray area is the parking lot next to the New Dorm while pink are ether macadam or stone paths. Red dots are know access points to the cave system of the hill in which "Second"' laboratory is located and trolls, goblins and a old minotaur live. The purple line is the boundary of the grounds. To line next to to the north edge of the campus is the main road. Brown lines are elevation in spans of 75, with the hill top being 472, the first line from inside out 400, the second 325 and third 250.

    The New Dorm is the large complex next to the north edge of the grounds while the Old Dorm is a bit to the east from there, inside a forest that spread there after years of neglect.
    The building on the hill is a large hangar for tanks and airplanes, both for Tankery/airshows and collector items.

    [LEFT][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][FONT=arial]The technology of the IDS would to most look like magic and some of it even is partially based on magic.[/FONT]

    [SIZE=4][FONT=arial][B]Magically Enhanced Technology - MagiTech[/B] and [B]Technologically Improved Magic - TechMag[/B][/FONT][/SIZE]
    [SIZE=5][SIZE=4][FONT=arial]Most IDS technology is partly or completely inter grated with some magic to produce better results, results at all or just to increase the reliability or durability of the technology. This is called MagiTech.[/FONT]
    [SIZE=4][FONT=arial]Magic is powerful. But if you combine it with technology it can become down right fearful as different technology can improve magic on various ways, from mass producing basic needs for magic to creating elaborate magic-based weapons for mages. This is TechMag.[/FONT][/SIZE]

    [SIZE=5][SIZE=4][B][SIZE=4][FONT=arial]Energy Supply[/FONT][/SIZE][/B][SIZE=4]
    [SIZE=4][FONT=arial]Most energy on planets comes from massive geothermal or hydro plants as well as gigantic space-based solar plants. Due to the large urbanization Earth primary utilizes massive space solar plants and underground geothermal plants.[/FONT][/SIZE]
    [SIZE=5][SIZE=4][FONT=arial]On starships the most common way of producing energy are reactors. Most IDS reactors are driven by a stable crystal-like substance known as Antimatter Crystals. Once they were used to directly produce energy but today they are catalysts for achieving reaction between Energy and AntiEnergy and producing large amount of Magic Power which is then converted or used directly. Some smaller vessel still use Antimatter-Matter annihilation for power supply, primary spacecrafts of all kinds.[/FONT]
    [SIZE=4][FONT=arial]Alternatively high efficiency fusion plants can be used, trough they at best have a similar output to Antimatter-Matter reactors.[/FONT][/SIZE]

    [SIZE=5][SIZE=4][B][SIZE=4][FONT=arial]Robotics and Artificial Intelligence[/FONT][/SIZE][/B][SIZE=4]
    [SIZE=4][FONT=arial]Robotics is another field in which IDS shines, with wide spread use of robots, from delivering mail, over factory work to the battlefields.[/FONT][/SIZE]
    [SIZE=5][SIZE=4][FONT=arial]Most robots are controlled by more or less powerful and capable Artificial Intelligences or AIs. AIs are usually categorized in two broad groups - numb and emotional. Numb AIs are incapable of emotions, while emotional AIs have special sub-programs that allow them to fill emotions. Emotional AIs are considered persons by IDS standards.[/FONT]

    [SIZE=4][FONT=arial]One particular field of robotics and AIs are nanobots and femtobots, robots on the size scale from the size of a living cell to the atomic core. Most are combination of technology and magic. They have many uses but their primary ones are industry, medicine and military. In the industry they are the ultimate perfect manufacturing machine multipurpose and almost always perfect. In military they repair hulls, slip into enemy computers to hack then, can be used for spying or scouting as well as a deadly weapon. In medicine nanobots and femotbots allow one to be perfectly healthy, always have a body at least on the level of a 21st century athlete, do away with genetic disease, protect from radiation; they even keep you from getting colds!!![/FONT][/SIZE]

    [SIZE=5][SIZE=4][B][SIZE=4][FONT=arial]Complete Restoration System[/FONT][/SIZE][/B][SIZE=4]
    [SIZE=4][FONT=arial]Death being the boss/head of a huge amount of always busy Grim Reapers or Death Angels, or whatever you call them, is not a person without a need for money. So in order to earn some she decided to find someone and create a machine that would resurrect anyone - for a price naturally. Using state of the scanners to scan someone and then storing that data in a central database allowed for one's body to be reconstructed in seconds while an automated program would deduct a sum from the account of the resurrected, transfer it to Death who would then put the unlucky fellow's soul into the reconstructed body. Today there is no person which doesn't have a contract with the Restoration Corporation and who doesn't regularly update their "Complete Scan" how the process of scanning one's body for possible restoration is called.[/FONT][/SIZE]

    [SIZE=4][FONT=arial]Long range transportation is made by Dimension crossing starships while on shorter distance atmosphere only capable crafts nicknamed "flying cars", teleportation and public transportation (usually by metro and trains) are some of the options.[/FONT][/SIZE]

    [SIZE=4][FONT=arial]Most weapons in the IDS are ether Magically Enhanced Technology or Technologically Improved Magic.[/FONT][/SIZE]
    [SIZE=5][SIZE=4][FONT=arial]MagiTech weapons are primary Energy-AntiEnergy guns, blasters which fire short but powerful burst of both magic and energy, beams which fire longer lasting beams of magic and energy, missile launchers of all kind, enchanted swords and so on.[/FONT]
    [SIZE=4][FONT=arial]TechMag weapons are various Magical Power guns.[/FONT][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/size][/SIZE][/SIZE][/size][/SIZE][/SIZE][/size][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/size][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/size][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/LEFT][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4]
    [SIZE=4][FONT=arial]Unique weapons or Artifacts are powerful one-of-the-kind weapons with various abilities, unique properties or attacks that have a unique effect/property.[/FONT][/SIZE][/size][/size][/size][/size][/size][/size][/size][/size][/size][/size][/size][/size][/size][/size][/size][/size][/size][/size][/size][/size][/size][/size][/size][/size][/size][/spoiler][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4]
    [Spoiler=Magic][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][FONT=arial]Magic is a complex subject. Many different kinds of it exist in the IDS.[/FONT][/SIZE]
    [SIZE=5][SIZE=4][B][SIZE=4][FONT=arial]Pure Magic and the Magic Flow[/FONT][/SIZE][/B][SIZE=4]
    [SIZE=4][FONT=arial]Of all magic only one type is all-present and essential to the existence of the IDS - Pure Magic. Pure Magic is magic as it purest - wild and uncontrollable, even to the most powerful and learned mages of the IDS.[/FONT][/SIZE]
    [SIZE=5][SIZE=4][FONT=arial]The only apparently orderly part of Pure Magic is the Magic Flow - a constant stream of magic that spreads trough the IDS and picks up, releases and creates the Pure Magic that is the basis of all living - Souls. Death is the keeper and tender of the Magic Flow and she is the one responsible for most of the Souls that return to the Magic Flow[/FONT]

    [SIZE=4][B][SIZE=4][FONT=arial]Harmonic Magic[/FONT][/SIZE][/B][/SIZE]
    [SIZE=5][SIZE=4][FONT=arial]Harmonic magic are all types of magic that are so close to Pure Magic that to control them a perfect harmony of one's magical energy is necessary, but it is the most powerful magic type available to the IDS.[/FONT]
    [SIZE=4][FONT=arial]A sub-type of Harmonic Magic is Divine Magic or just Divine Powers, which are the powers that the many deities of IDS are able to use as well as bestow as blessing, be by themselves or trough their priests and priestess. Most priests and priestess are also able to borrow the Divine Powers of their deity and wield it against their enemies.[/FONT][/SIZE]

    [SIZE=5][SIZE=4][B][SIZE=4][FONT=arial]True Magic[/FONT][/SIZE][/B][SIZE=4]
    [SIZE=4][FONT=arial]This type of magic is more widespread and easier to use then Harmonic magic because it mostly requires one to be able to know the true magical nature of their surroundings and an ability to think out or what kind of changes in it would result in a certain effect on the world, or in some cases just wishing strongly and with enough belief in the reality of the wish.[/FONT][/SIZE]

    [SIZE=5][SIZE=4][B][SIZE=4][FONT=arial]Concentration & Other Magic[/FONT][/SIZE][/B][SIZE=4]
    [SIZE=4][FONT=arial]Magic in this category is the weakest of all and only requires one being able to concentrate two things - one's magical power and the change one wants to achieve. Elemental magic is a sub-type of this magic. Some magic achieve the needed concentration trough songs, some trough incantations, some by focusing and some by thought alone.[/FONT][/SIZE]

    [SIZE=5][SIZE=4][B][SIZE=4][FONT=arial]Life Force/Qi Manipulation[/FONT][/SIZE][/B][SIZE=4]
    [SIZE=4][FONT=arial]The natural ability to manipulate the natural flow of magic is one's body is known as Qi or Life Force manipulation and is developed trough hard martial arts training or special trainings methods for mages. Trough at first though to be useful only for rising one's physical abilities by concentrating or accelerating the magical flow in certain areas of the body or maybe unleash a few "Qi strikes on distance", it didn't take long for mages to realize that training this skill allowed one to greatly improve one's control over the flow of magic when firing out spells and thous allowing one to charge up spells faster, make them stronger or even fire out larger spells then one's magic power reserve could handle by storing additional magic power all over their body.[/FONT][/SIZE][/size][/SIZE][/SIZE][/size][/SIZE][/SIZE][/size][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/size][/SIZE][/SIZE][/LEFT][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=4]
    [LEFT][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][B][SIZE=4][FONT=arial]General overlook[/FONT][/SIZE][/B][SIZE=4]
    [SIZE=4][FONT=arial]Through beginning as an anti-demon martial arts the founder of the IDS Shinmeiryuu, S. Sakurazaki knew, from the first time she stepped into the IDS that Shinmeiryuu had to broad it's abilities or perish in the darkness of history. [/FONT][/SIZE]
    [SIZE=5][SIZE=4][FONT=arial]And so S. Sakurazaki learned, adapted and rewritten to re-create Shinmeiryuu into the pinnacle of IDS martial arts, a flexibile style that can adapt to any opponent yet with a simple but sturdy base on which it rests - the katana.[/FONT]
    [SIZE=4][FONT=arial]Now Shinmeiryuu has a massive list of techniques for use on all sorts of opponents, from demons, over mages to even Freaks.[/FONT][/SIZE]

    [SIZE=4][FONT=arial]Shinmeiryuu begun as a humble and small martial arts from a dimension in which a certain wizard thought in Mahora Junior High. This particular version of the story had a immortal S. Sakurazaki and the development of IDS travel. After several millenniums of getting to know the IDS trough travel S. Sakurazaki came to the Japan of the Earth Alliance and started building Shinmeiryuu. [/FONT][/SIZE]
    [SIZE=5][SIZE=4][FONT=arial]The founds to open the 1st Kyoto Shinmeiryuu came mostly from the Japanese Kendo Association, Nippon Companies United and Dimensional Otaku Forums. But it was already that by the time the first generation of graduates exited that S. Sakurazaki and the Shinmeiryuu swordsmen became heroes of Earth which was plagued by criminal organizations of usually run by and made out of demons.[/FONT]
    [SIZE=4][FONT=arial]It was no surprise that everyone suddenly wanted to have at least one Shinmeiryuu school near them. In the next few thousand years the number of Shinmeiryuu schools rose from one to around half a million until a equilibrium between how many demons can be found and how many Shinmeiryuu schools was needed. That was until Shinmeiryuu schools started to slowly become more and more a place to send spoiled rich kids to make them more serious and appreciative of what they had. This lead to a slow but constant rise in number of Shinmeiryuu school and now there are about eight hundred thousand Shinmeiryuu school.[/FONT][/SIZE]

    [SIZE=4][FONT=arial]Shinmeiryuu is hierarchically organized in the following way:[/FONT][/SIZE]
    [SIZE=5][SIZE=4][FONT=arial]Shinmeiryuu Martial Arts School Central Administration is at the top. Located near the 1st Kyoto Shinmeiryuu School this is the highest body in IDS Shinmeiryuu, supervising all schools, members and students of Shinmeiryuu. It's head position is that of Headmaster of Shinmeiryuu and is held by S.Sakurazaki.[/FONT]
    [SIZE=4][FONT=arial]After that come Shinmeriyuu Regional Administrations which each usually handle one country, with the exception of Japan which is directly regulated by the Central Administration.[/FONT][/SIZE]
    [SIZE=5][SIZE=4][FONT=arial]After that each Shinmeiryuu School has an assigned area in which it has to monitor, report and put extermination requests,bounties or other other appropriate notifications depending on the nature of the trouble. Each school has also handle all Shinmeiryuu swordsmen living in their allocated area.[/FONT]
    [SIZE=4][FONT=arial]Except for this all members of Shinmeiryuu are placed in different level of skills, from the lowest Pupil, over Beginner, Experienced and Advanced until the highest Master. Further more those levels are split in five ranks from the highest I to the lowest V. The rules state that a lower rank/level must always call a higher rank Sempai in formal opportunities, no matter if their is a difference of years of leaning or actual age difference, naturally in return the higher rank/level must also call the lower one Kohai.[/FONT][/SIZE]

    [SIZE=5][SIZE=4][B][SIZE=4][FONT=arial]Weapons, armor and other equipment[/FONT][/SIZE][/B][SIZE=4]
    [SIZE=4][FONT=arial]The traditional weapon of the Shinmeiryuu is a extremely long and heavy cavalry katana but S. Sakurazaki forsake this for a more practical standard katana usually paired with a shorter sword in the off hand, except when fighting enemies that are several times bigger then a common human. As new Master level except S. Sakurazaki emerged so did some more or less interesting weapon choices, including the previously mentioned traditional cavalry katana. Some of such styles included bare fists as basis, some took a gun as off hand weapon and so on.[/FONT][/SIZE]
    [SIZE=5][SIZE=4][FONT=arial]But for the most Shinmeiryuu the standard katana only forged from IDS materials and with IDS methods. Usually one's weapon, except if privately brought shows the level of the Shinmeiryuu swordsmen.[/FONT]
    [SIZE=4][FONT=arial]Pupils usually only get a practice wooden weapon but in rare cases in which they are given a real weapon it is usually made out of Ancient Metalum, an extremely durable (only a few materials are more durable then it), magic-absorbent metal.[/FONT][/SIZE]
    [SIZE=5][SIZE=4][FONT=arial]Beginners are given weapons made out of Power Metalum, a specially crafted magic-infused Ancient Metalum which reflects magic and takes more punishment then plain old Ancinet Metalum.[/FONT]
    [SIZE=4][FONT=arial]Experienced swordsman receive enchanted or blessed Power Metalum weapons, with the blessing or enchantment depending on the specialization which the swordsman chose.[/FONT][/SIZE]
    [SIZE=5][SIZE=4][FONT=arial]Advanced ones receive a Power Metalum weapon with both a blessing and enchantment.[/FONT]
    [SIZE=4][FONT=arial]Masters usually receive weapons with several enchantments and blessings made out of a Mithril (in the IDS Mithril, trough not especially hard has the special property of negating all special abilities, like magic for example) core and high-grade Power Metalum blade OR an Artifact(Unique) weapon.[/FONT][/SIZE]
    [SIZE=5][SIZE=4][FONT=arial]Most Shinmeiryuu forsake armor for mobility and at best utilized a small personal MagiTech shield+barrier, gauntlets, neck guard and leg guards. Usually the materials follow the same pattern as for weapons.[/FONT]
    [SIZE=4][FONT=arial]Of other equipment Shinmeiryuu usually use talismans, charms, rune papers and spell scrolls.[/FONT][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/size][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/size][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/size][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE][/size][/SIZE][/SIZE][/LEFT][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4]
    [Spoiler=Everyday Life]
    [LEFT][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][FONT=arial]Considering the number of worlds in the IDS we will concentrate on everyday life in the Japan in which our school is located in.[/FONT]

    [SIZE=4][B][SIZE=4][FONT=arial]Childhood and Teenage years[/FONT][/SIZE][/B][/SIZE]
    [SIZE=5][SIZE=4][FONT=arial]There is not much difference in today's childhood and that of the IDS, except maybe that fact that almost everyone, at least in Japan, has equal access to all that they need. All life's necessitates are cheap in the IDS as long as you don't go for handcrafted and traditionally produced stuff a family of five can live comfortably from even the lowest of paychecks, one reason why there is no such thing as social cases or monetary social help in Japan. This allows most to have a happy childhood, as long as the usual human factor doesn't kick in.[/FONT]
    [SIZE=4][FONT=arial]Most enroll in school at 6 or 7 years of age. Elementary school lasts for 6 years.[/FONT][/SIZE]
    [SIZE=5][SIZE=4][FONT=arial]As one finishes elementary school puberty usually hits, which is a turbulent time for most, but thanks to a well developed system most teenagers have no problem fitting in one of the many subcultures of Japan.[/FONT]
    [SIZE=4][FONT=arial]At this time one also has to decide on a path in life as Middle and then High School specialize one for a certain profession in the future.[/FONT][/SIZE]

    [SIZE=5][SIZE=4][B][SIZE=4][FONT=arial]Collage and Adulthood[/FONT][/SIZE][/B][SIZE=4]
    [SIZE=4][FONT=arial]Know as "Last Taste of Freedom" collage is where usually people experiment the most with things. Thankfully most pass this phase a bit wiser then before it and ready for adult life. On average 99,59% of each generation enrolls and finishes collage.[/FONT][/SIZE]
    [SIZE=5][SIZE=4][FONT=arial]And trough collage is known as "Last Taste of Freedom" it is adulthood which provides true freedom for anyone, as all one needs to do is find the nearest orbital elevator, catch a ride to it's GeoStat - the space station at the end of the orbital elevator and look at a job offer in your profession or for a ride away from Earth. Or you could go in search for romance and adventure somewhere on Earth. To put it short the freedom the IDS gives someone who reached adulthood is to do whatever one wants, even find a part-time job and waste one's days away on whatever fancies the person in question.[/FONT]

    [SIZE=4][B][SIZE=4][FONT=arial]Events, Festivals and Similar[/FONT][/SIZE][/B][/SIZE]
    [SIZE=5][SIZE=4][FONT=arial]Not including the traditional Japanese holidays and festivals Tokyo does have a few unique events of it's own.[/FONT]

    [SIZE=5][SIZE=4][FONT=arial]Grand Tokyo Festival - Each five years, during the first seven days of August, all sexual related laws are not applicable for Tokyo City, turning the city into a sexual paradise/hell.[/FONT]
    [SIZE=4][FONT=arial]Comiket - still held and even more popular then ever. Today it is held in the Tezuka Osamu Hall in the Meiji district of Tokyo which is the center of Otaku industry today. Usually it last 4-5 days both in summer and winter with around 100 million visitors each day, off which most come from Japan. Each four years a special week long Comiket is held within the Tokyo Olympic Park in early autumn with several billion visitors from all over the IDS.[/FONT][/SIZE]
    [SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][FONT=arial]Remembrance Day - As many cities over the world Tokyo has a special holiday to remember the destruction that it suffered from nuclear bombs in the Catastrophe (happened aeons age, not important for story). To honor this day floating candles are sent with known names of all those that died on 13 July 2029 in Tokyo and a list of cities that were hit with estimated casualties is broadcasted trough the city and it's suburbs.[/FONT][/SIZE]
    [SIZE=4][FONT=arial]Naturally Tokyo has many sights to see, from the Culture Tower, a spacescraper serving as one of the seven governing buildings of the Earth Alliance, over the Youkai city to the Tokyo orbital elevator.[/FONT][/SIZE]

The basic of all IDS is Magic but technology is also an important part of the IDS, as many Dimensions have complex, hard-to-use or chance-dependent ways of using magic that are unpractical.[/FONT]

    [SIZE=4][FONT=verdana][B]7th Tokyo Shinmeiryuu School[/B] - The seventh school of Shinmeiryuu opened in (new) Tokyo, located on the end of the north slope of a hill north from Fuji in the western Tokyo suburbs. It would be a normal school but a unnaturally large amount of Otaku arrives in it each year and inhabits the old dorm building which became a Otaku fortress when the new dorm building was finished.[/FONT][/SIZE]

    [SIZE=4][FONT=verdana][B]Power Metalum[/B] - A silver-blue metal created trough infusing magic into Ancient Metalum on a special way. As not all methods of creating it are the same and there is a certain random factor it's quality differs and affects the performance of the result product.[/FONT][/SIZE]

    [SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][SIZE=5][SIZE=4][FONT=verdana][B]Japan's Non-Military Self-Defense Alliance[/B] - made out of the Shinmeiryuu Martial Art School (Shinmeiryuu), the Japanese Magic Union (JAMU), the Japanese Shinto Shrines & Buddhist Temples Association (JASS&BUTA) and the Japanese Adventurer's Guild (JAG).

    What would usually be a ordinary Shinmeiryuu school is plagued by one hard to get rid of problem which was not solved with the construction of a new dorm. This problem are the several dozens of Otaku students of various kinds that now occupy the old dorm of the school and not only drag tournament results of the school but also are impossible to remove as regular at least several of them are children of influential or rich people, as well as the support of the school's vice-president, who is called only "Vice-President" and the eternal repeater studet known only as "Second" to the other students.

    Now are you one of the Otaku of the old dorm? A normal student of the new dorm? Or someone in between struggling between being normal or Otaku?[/FONT][/SIZE][/tab]

    [SIZE=4][FONT=helvetica]Most students should be Japanese. If you need names and surnames (family names) Wikipedia has a large list of both for pretty much every language.

    [SIZE=4][FONT=helvetica]Most students would have finished 9 years of education when entering a Shinmeiryuu school, six years of elementary and three years middle school, the standard for most IDS countries inhabited by species with similar natural life spans to the human one. This means the age range of 15-20 in most cases (excluding failing years).[/FONT][/SIZE]

    [SIZE=4][FONT=helvetica]Or species. Most characters should be humans or humanoid aliens/sentient demons. A few might be races able to transform or shift between a humanoid and a non-human appearance.[/FONT][/SIZE]

    [SIZE=4][FONT=helvetica]Most of our characters would probably have normal stories that lead them to come into the school. Some in a wish to eridacate evil demons which took their loved ones, some born in a rich and lazy life style but now forced to learn about discipline and hard work.

  2. ---
    “VP”, “The Replacement”, “Vice President”, “Oh God Not Her Again”
    Name: Unknown
    Surname: Unknown
    Age: 14
    Race: Genuine ordinary Human (Apparently)


    Nobody really knows a lot about VP, except that she is 14 years old. It would seem she has a high influence in the government, but not in the Shinmeiryuu alliance, causing quite a bit of headaches for S.Sakurazaki due to her shenanigans. She moved into the 7th Shinmeiryuu school 3 years ago, when the school was small and had only the old dorm as the Vice President, with her assistance over the first years the otakus turned the school into a paradise for them, and then when the dorm was to be demolished in order to reform the school back to normal, she arranged its survival, creating the legendary fortress of Otaku.
    She suggested the current number system the Otakus use, with the "First" being the moral representative of Otakuism while the "Second" is the smartest and most cunning of the residents, the "Third" is the leader of the "Outlooks" which are mostly transfer students from ninja schools or people with a thing for spying, and are mainly used for information gathering on the potential stupid shit old dorm denizens often do.
    Numbers from three onward simply represent the "age" of the person in the eyes of the dorm community, in other words when they first entered the old dorm.

    Psychological Profile:
    VP is an odd girl, hanging out with all sort of odd people. On the outside she seems unusual due to her penchant for dyeing her hair and the habit of carrying several katanas around, some tall as her.
    When one meets her she will be totally relaxed, hardly ever getting excited for something beyond games and occasional tankery match. She also appears sorta clumsy, even though she single handedly cleans, cooks and maintains the old dorm.
    She is not exactly an otaku, while she does have favorite manga and anime and enjoys playing certain multiplayer games, it’s not exactly on the level where it’s the main occupation of her life.
    She does seem to have quite a love for pranks, often assisting in all sort of stupid shit and mayhem the Otakus do, even starting some of it, like the legendary sewage overflow, in which the old dorm denizens reversed the pumps on a major sewage treatment plant, causing the Legendary shit flood
    Her favorite tank is the ELC AMX which she operates alone, she is not exactly the most important member of the 7th TSS Tankery team, but she is a brilliant lone wolf.
    While she isn’t an otaku she seems attached to the old dorm and its denizens.

    Shinmeiryuu level: Master - I
    Non-Shinmeiryuu abilities: None

    “Tentacle Slayer” - “A sword feared by squid, octopi, cuttlefish, tentacle beasts and slimes alike.”
    “The Y sword.” - A sword wielding unimaginable power.
    Ordinary Shinmeiryuu Cavarly Sword - The traditional sword of Shinmeiryuu.

    Armor: None

    Other combat equipment: None.

    Non-combat equipment: Nokia 3350 21st century cell Phone.

  3. @Nocturnia your CS is accepted. And don't fret about stuff and put that "akumo" after "Y" in "Y sword" okay?

    "There is always new things one can learn."

    Name: Eizo (fake)
    Surname: Ierei (fake)
    Age: ??? appears to be around 20 years old


    Known to most as "Second" and to Shinmeiryuu officials under the fake name "Eizo Ierei" this man infiltrated the 7th Shinmeiryuu school years ago to be a forward agent of a mysterious organization of lose organization known as the "Comradeship" whose members are spread all over human worlds and even further. He did little to interfere with the school itself but rather chosen to do just enough not to be kicked out of school while still falling due to not attending most of the trainings.
    On a whim and with a bit of luck the founders of the Old Dorm tradition found "Second" and his underground laboratory located in the caves which tunnel trough the hill on which the school was built. From then he has been a valuable ally and help to the Old Dorm, giving advice or saving them on multiple occasions.
    "Second" is a brilliant person, versed in a variety of fields, from nanotechnology over law to sociology. He is usually in charge of providing the Otaku of the old dorm with various advanced technology items, magical potions and devices or other stuff that is ether useful or fun, as well as needed advice in many fields.

    Psychological Profile:
    "Second" is a calm and collected person, hard to surprise or make emotional.
    He likes peace and quite usually but even he needs human company sometimes.
    His favorite thing is discovering new stuff.
    Not an Otaku trough he has a few Manga, Anime and Light Novels that he likes, as well as numerous books, mostly discussions about magic and science but also Science Fiction and Fantasy works.
    He usually commands one of the better armored tanks of the 7th Tokyo Shinmeiryuu Tankery Club like the Churchill VII, Tiger II or IS-2.

    Shinmeiryuu level: Experienced IV (but has theoretical knowledge of Master level skills)
    Non-Shinmeiryuu abilities: Concentration magic of mediocre levels, all fields of science on at least the level of a collage graduate from that field, various magic-related skills like alchemy or summoning, various other skills.

    "Hundred Blades" - A one and a half hand (bastard) double-edged sword capable of splitting itself into a hundred remote controlled dagger-sized and shaped shards. Each shard is made out of a nanocore which repairs, controls movements with a gravity manipulator and shifts the shape of the outer shell which is made out of an enormous number of nanobots made mostly out of high grade Power Metalum that has been blessed and enchanted multiple times.
    "Weak Point" - A stiletto, a stabbing weapon similar to a dagger. An Artifact of unknown origin that allows it's user to always know where an enemy can be hit for a instant kill.
    Balzat Singularity Point Creator Launcher - A two handed weapon from the Russian weapon manufacturer and designer Balzat. It crates micro black holes and encases the created black hole and a certain area in a powerful shield and force field until nothing is left. Radius of affected area can be set up before firing, with a limit of 1-25 meters.

    Armor: UC "Protector" Mark 7021 Personal Shield

    Other combat equipment: Several dozens rune papers and spell scrolls.

    Non-combat equipment: Oko "Detektiv" Mark 8812 Handheld Sensor, Kasei Telecommunications "New Age AX-1" smartphone, General Electric "Spirit" Mark 4917 Active Personal Stealth System.

  4. Just to confirm...but the characters here...are they considered top-tier in the multiverse? Or what? Because weapons that give Mystic Eyes of Death Perception and create black holes and are literally defined as having 'unimaginable power' doesn't sound like shit people at a school would have...
  5. VP is top tier, Second is just an ordinary guy with fancy weapons, can easily be killed by actual top tier guys.
    Also I'll likely make another character as VP's role in this RP is most likely going to be getting you out of trouble if you really mess up.
    Along with cameo appearances all around the dorm.
    Dunno what gamer intends to do with the "Second" though.
  6. Are those fancy weapons something that can be mass-produced then? Or at least produced for lots of people? I'd imagine that if knowledge of how his weapons work are shared, there'd be top-tiers going around with his insta-kill daggers as well, right? And they'd probably make better use of it too?
  7. Nah, the dagger is a unique piece of weaponry, an artifact of sorts.
    And keep in mind while the knife shows the weak spot, he doesn't necessarily have the skill to hit it.

    Horrifyingly, the black hole gun is indeed a mass produced weapon.
  8. It's a weak point of instant-kill though, not merely a weak point. Why hasn't the government or the military come over to just say "Hey, look, your dagger of instant kill is really cool, but you? Not so cool. Please hand it over to a top-tier who can use it to its full potential, okay?"

    Unless that's something that's going to happen in the future.
  9. Well I presume that either
    1) He doesn't go around talking about his "Totally rad instakill knife"
    2) Uses the "Comradeship" 's influence to keep the government away
  10. "Second's" weapons are the best ones on his disposal, the first two being Artifacts given to him by the "Comradeship" for this mission while the third, the black hole emitter, being a tactical military weapon that is usually not available to public, "Second" only uses it knowing that "Vice President" will cover for him with the organs of law and order if a need for it arises.

    It should be noted that "Second", trough more capable in fight then most students is still far from "Vice President" who is skilled enough to fight on even grounds with the best of the best in the IDS.

    The dagger just points out where one must hit to kill/destroy something as fast as possible. For humans this would be brain stem, which modern day snipers, especially police ones, are trained to shot so the target dies inside a very short spam of time (a few micro or nano seconds). For most demons this would be their Demon Core, which allows them to exists. In most starships this would be the Reactor's Reaction Chamber and/or it's Control Unit. Some creatures have multiple brains and hearts, making the dagger useless against them.
    Hitting that weakest point is another matter...

    He never had a need to use any of those weapons during this mission to observe and influence the 7th Tokyo Shinmeiryuu School. Further more as @Nocturnia pointed out he doesn't go around bragging about the two.
    Furthermore the ratio between the number of government officials which give a damn about someone possessing an unregistered Artifact and the number of owners of unregistered Artifacts is enormous, not to mention that the Japanese government has little reasons to search grounds of the Shinmeiryuu schools for such Artifacts as Shinmeiryuu is a part of Japan's version of the USA National Guard.
    Even if found out to posses such Artifacts "Second" can count on the influence of the "Comradeship" and "Vice President" to cover up the existence of the artifacts.

    ANYWAY TO POINT OUT - "VICE PRESIDENT" & "SECOND" ARE PRIMARY HERE TO SAVE BUTS OF OTHER CHARACTERS IN SITUATION IN WHICH THEY MIGHT DIE, GO TO JAIL, BREAK DOWN MENTALLY AND SO ON. They are also here to kick-start various "stupid shit" as Nocturnia put it - comical events that will make most of the RP (with time skips for weeks of ordinary life included).

    “To live a splendid life, all one needs is a splendid sword.”
    Arata Ketsueki
    Age: 16
    Race: Artificial Oni​

    History: By nature, oni are essentially malevolent spirits, harbingers of disaster that the phrase ‘strong beyond strong’ is attached. And, by human nature, such power is something that should definitely be harnessed, leading to a group of magical researchers to initiate the Living Spirit Project. Beneath the nose of human society, children with high magical potential were exchanged for money and experimented on, for the sake of making them suitable vessels for the great spirits of disaster.

    Arata Ketsueki was one of kids who made it past the stages of ‘adjustment’ and ‘transference’, and even managed to survive the ‘adaptation’ that allowed him to retain his sanity and physical stability while an oni dwelled within him. At the age of six years old, his temper tantrums were already frightening enough that no one approached him unless he was sedated beforehand, and at the age of eight, he was proclaimed as one of the few successes that the laboratory had produced.

    But the child was lonely, and with no companions outwards, Arata turned inwards, awakening the supernatural calamity that was locked in his body.

    The result was the destruction of the underground laboratory and the death of dozens, both of other children and of the scientists that overlooked them. In that rampage, the possessed boy devoured more and more oni, until he became ‘we’, and caused catastrophic amounts of damage to the isolated mountain ranges the laboratory was located in.

    It took two hours for the Self Defense Alliance to subdue him, to reseal the dozens of oni that were bound to his body.

    Arata hadn’t expected much after all this, perhaps a future of being studied or experimented on or disposed of, but instead, he was put under the charge of a Shinmeiryuu officer. It was essentially an adoption, and, though he had his suspicions at first, the boy began to learn the ways of the Ketsueki family and of the sword. It had been determined that, if the Artificial Ogre was to learn how to rein in his emotions, how to live as a human, he would become a boon to humanity.

    So he trains and he grows in order to live, and in order to live up to the expectations of his parents.

    Needless to say, the amount of trash in 7th Tokyo Shinmeiryuu School was actually literally disgusting.

    Psychological Profile: Arata is restrained and careful, someone who tries to speak as calmly and rationally as possible. He sees himself as someone who straddles a fine line between monster and human, and does his best not to give him to sudden bursts of anger or violence. A stalwart, responsible individual, the boy sees it as his duty to right wrongs and to live splendidly. He separates himself from material desires, despises those who blackheartedly take advantage of the Grand Tokyo Festival, and has a rather traditional view as to how one should act in public.
    Arata believes that friendship is unbecoming of him, because intimacy draws out emotion and with that, the loss of a self-control, but at the same time…he would like to have friends. Living more than half his life alone, and then living the other half just trying to catch up to his peers doesn’t exactly make for the most socially skilled person though.

    He can respect the fervour and passion of otaku, but still thinks most of them as disgusting creeps salivating over underaged imaginary girls.

    Shinmeiryuu level:
    Experienced V – Anti Demon Specialization
    Non-Shinmeiryuu abilities:
    Martial Arts – Before Arata learned to swing a sword, he learned to control his own body, granting discipline to the wild, aimless swings that his oni side desired. Though not a master, he’s spent five years, and has never stopped training.

    Qi Manipulation – Perhaps it’s because his existence as an Artificial Oni grants him an excessive amount of it, or perhaps it’s because he’s just naturally gifted, but Arata is a very powerful manipulator of Qi. This stems largely from the fact that he simply has a lot of it, however, and if one was to judge from skill and efficiency alone, there would be little difference between him and an intermediate practitioner.

    Harmonic Magic – Yet another thing that Arata isn’t amazing at, but still trains himself in, his Harmonic Magic is largely useless for anything outside of the training rooms. Trying to maintain perfect control of his chaotic magical energy requires vast amounts of concentration, enough that two years of training has not yet brought him out of the realm of a beginner, but Arata doesn’t complain. His use for Harmonic Magic is purely theoretical in combat, but that too is another method devised by his adoptive father for him to gain control of his powers.

    Oni Soul – Twelve seals restrain the wrath of the forty-eight oni that currently dwell within Arata’s body, but recently, he has been granted clearance to temporarily release two of these seals in order to tap into the disastrous strength that rests within him. Purging the first seal merely grants him an increase in physical strength and magical power, but purging the second seal will begin to change his body, a blazing shroud surrounding him as his skin blackens and his body grows to 6’4. Naturally, the cost for these ‘steroids’ is his mind, as the oni starts to eat away at it. If Arata does not re-activate the seals after three minutes, a curse of Divine nature will drive a stake through his heart and kill him.

    Katana – A beautiful blade personally commissioned by his adoptive father after Arata began his second year in 7th Tokyo Shinmeiryuu School. Its blade is pale like moonlight, and its scabbard as black as a cloudless night. Though not enhanced by any magical power, its beauty makes it a treasure, and it has yet to chip from even the most vicious of Arata’s swings. Its name is Gekkou no Tsurugi, the Moon Splendor Sword.

    Armor: None
    Other combat equipment: None
    Non-combat equipment: Literally, actually none. Arata doesn’t have many possessions of note.

  12. Nice CS. Accepted! I presume that he is a Second Year Student of the New Dorm?

    I just hope that you are not the only one to join the RP without me needing to put out an add.

    I might make a more ordinary inhabitant of the 7th Tokyo Shinmeiryuu sometime soon myself to allow me to better lead the RP forward.
  13. Yeah, second year sounds about right. Might want to VM the kiddos who haven't responded yet though. Don't know if it's just me, but I never got notifications when you tagged me in your posts.
  14. Just noticed that you didn't stick to the Shinmeiryuu level guide provided in the cast list and Shinmeiryuu information spoiler. Remember the levels are: Pupil, Beginner, Experienced, Advanced and Master with each level further being divided into five ranks from I to V (the later being the lowest). Remember that most students in the 7th Shinmeiryuu are Pupils and Beginners (usually 4th year and better 3rd year) trough given your character's history being a mid-rank (IV-II) Beginner and becoming a lower-rank (V/IV) Experienced by the second year sounds plausible.
  15. So there's a University for Shinmeiryuu as well then?
  16. No only High School and lower, as it would take to much time training Shinmeiryuu to manage studying anything on a University level at that point. Most of those aiming to become professional Shinmeiryuu fighters do not go to Uni but train under one of the existing Masters, usually in an established Dojo.
  17. "A Girl to Kind for the IDS"
    "No good deed goes unpunished.
    Still I shall follow my heart and do good deeds."

    Name: Aimi
    Surname: Sugii
    Age: 16
    Race: Soulless - A human that sold their soul to a demon and are now becoming one themselves.


    The beginning of a sad fate (open)
    Aimi was born in a family far from anything ordinary. Born and raised in the Outskirts of the Adriatic Megapolis (part of Europe Gigapolis which is part of the Old World Terapolis) Aimi learned how to be tough, ruthless and as far possible from a weak, kind and caring girl. That was the life for her first ten years of life. Then her parents died when one of the Outskirt's groups blew up her home with a IDS-holding weapon which destroys even magic itself and thous the Soul that is the base of the resurrection technology of the IDS.
    With that Aimi was put under the care of her next kin that wanted to take her, her grandmother in Sendai. There Aimi learned about kindness, happiness of a ordinary life and about much other things which were unknown in the Outskirts.

    Shatters dreams and first signs (open)
    But no happiness lasts forever and one day, some half-drunk, half-drugged collage students came to Aimi's and her grandmother's home by pure accident. The events which happened there are still sealed in a police file. The only thing that is sure that the only person that walked out of that house alive was Aimi covered in blood and with obvious traces of involuntary sexual acts being forced upon her.
    The rest of that school year Aimi spent in a state-of-the-art psychiatric institution leaving it only a few days before the start of the next school year to finalize her transfer in an all-girls school, still regularly meeting with a psychiatric for the many problems she had. Even her grandmother, resurrected thanks to IDS magitech, could only pray that Aimi would be cured.

    A good deed and bullies (open)
    But all the efforts were shattered by one good deed from Aimi. It happened a week after she came in the new school in the girl's toilet. There some senior students were bullying a younger girl when Aimi entered the bathroom. What happened next was Aimi saying and then shouting to the seniors to stop and finally punching one of them when the girls didn't listen. A brawl broke out and Aimi almost killed one of the seniors in blind rage which lead to her being suspended from school.
    Refusing to take this Aimi transferred out and after a talk with her grandmother moved to her aunt in Foreigner's Town a area of Nagasaki where many legal and illegal immigrants settled down. There she entered a Kasei Japanese lead school. There Aimi didn't waste time and quickly caught up and overrun her generation with sheer will and lots of studying, finishing Middle School with 14 years of age, but since there was no High School in Japan that she could go to she was free for the next year.

    More bullies and another good deed (open)
    But instead of peace and quiet Aimi got more trouble and problems on her back. It was a month after finishing school that she wound up on the second scene of bullying that changed her life. This time it was high school kids and further more boys. As she watched, holding back to rush in just to get bitten back or worse a man in a wheelchair approached her and asked: "Why don't you go to help that boy if you are so eager to do it?" Aimi shook her head and said: "If I went in it would change nothing, I am to weak to fight them." "Then how about getting a weapon and then the skills to use it. Let's start with the weapon first," the man said and took out a wooden baseball bat from a storage area below his wheelchairs, allowing me to see that he had no legs left. Then he pushed the grip of the bat towards me and said: "Here take it. A weapon like this should allow even you to do something about that scene."
    Aimi grabbed the bat that still follows her to this day and rushed in to rescue the bullied boy. Another fight in her life, but this time Aimi felt clearer then in her previous as if the bat made her more aware of the power she wielded. With strikes and hits she sent the high school kids running and then helped the bulled boy get up. She then watched him go. The man in the wheelchair was also gone. She locked to the sky and felt happy.

    The catch phrase and the contract (open)
    But as Aimi learned that time and from then kept saying: "No good deed goes unpunished. Still I shall follow my heart and do good deeds." Four hours later Aimi was hanging in a park when she spotted a familiar face, the leader of the bullies with two buddies, furthermore they all had a club or bat of some sort. When they spotted her and called someone over the phone. Then they surrounded her and waited, using their longer riches to keep her there and not giving her a chance at a breakthrough. Finally a dozen or so high school boys filled the park as night fell on the city. Without giving Aimi a chance they forcefully disarmed and restrained her. She was awaiting death, but what started happening was not a beating, but something that she vaguely remembered from somewhere. Then the memory resurfaced, of that tragic day when three people were found dead in the house of Aimi's grandmother. The memory of the pain, fear, suffering, her screams for help and finally a gentile voice asking her if she wanted to stop all this, at any cost. The memory of her barely uttering a yes and then a sudden rush of strength and vitality filling her body. The memory of red, red blood as she incapacitated the two man and burrowed trough them until she managed to get a grab on their souls. Then pulling those two souls out and eating them, feeding them to the demon that attached itself to her.
    Now again Aimi felt vitality surge to her body and strength outside of human realm emitting from every part of her body, her blood screaming for souls as a familiar voice said: "Now dance for me my doll, bring pain, suffering and blood before you collect the souls of this scum." Aimi could not resist this voice and jumped, landing where her tossed-away bat laid. In surprise the boys couldn't even react and Aimi started to break their legs, one scum after another. The screams of those that fallen got them back into action, but they stood no chance again Aimi and soon their numbers fell down and the few of them left tried to runaway. Aimi, under the spell of the demon, didn't let the escape, breaking their legs. With all of the boys unable to escape Aimi was forced to rip out and eat the souls of each of them.
    Finally when it was all over Aimi regained the control of her body and puked, and puked and was still trying to puke when the police came. This time they heard a chilling story and while she was in a holding cell Aimi was exterminated by a priest. The news were terrifying, Aimi has been contracted with the demon Queen Alaki and would never be freed from this bond. Should Aimi die, Alaki will simply bring her back to life. Aimi's life was in the grasp of a demon like no other. Furthermore Aimi could no go unpunished, even if she did what she did against her will. The next year Aimi spend in a special facility for cases like hears where she was thought all that she would need to know to prevent Alaki from gaining control of her again. This prevented her from entering High School at 15 and gave her more time to wonder, now back in Sendai and in her grandmother's house.

    A meeting with a girl and demons (open)
    There she meet the girl that would once again give Aimi hope. The two girls meet by accident, Aimi was walking down the road when she noticed a girl tied up and sliding down towards her on a wheeled chair. Aimi looked in wonder but reacted quickly and managed to grab and stop the chair. After that she proceeded to untie the girl and help her take the chair back to her home, where the girl smacked a few good ones to her two younger brothers that did this. The girls name was Yue and she became fast friends with Aimi. Yue was the daughter of a Shinmeiryuu Dojo Master and she invited Aimi to join in the trainings, trough this required some pressure, annoyance and a piece of cake.
    Life went on without problems until one day a group of powerful demons attacked the Dojo, seeking to earn name by killing Yue's father. But Aimi, warned by Alaki, sent Yue and her father away and now faced the demons repeating her catch phrase: "No good dead goes unpunished. Still I shall follow my heart and do good deeds." The demons just looked at her in confusion for a moment and then rushed at Aimi, who closed her eyes and concentrated on thinking about on thing and one thing only Alaki. Aimi felt as her body was tossed over half the room, she even heard the demons shout about Yue's father being gone and she most certainly felt when they begun doing perverted things to her.

    The deal and the hopeless girl (open)
    Yet Aimi kept her focus on Alaki until the demon Queen finally answered her in a civilized matter, by appearing in front of her and saying: "So brat what do you want?" Aimi already know what she was going to say: "I know that you don't plan on releasing my contract. But if possible I want to ask of you one thing." The Queen sighed and said: "Okay. Ask and I might fulfill your wish." Aimi was a small victory and then she asked: "Could I make that ability my own, for me to decide when to use and not you controlling me like a puppet?" The Queen widens her eyes and says: "No, I gain nothing from that. Using that ability uses up a lot of power. If I am not sure to get a soul when using it I would never use it. Allowing you to play with it would be fucking stupid. Now if that is all..." "Then I have another offer! Hear me out Alaki," Aimi shouted to stop her. She stops with a look of anger on her face and says: "Speak carefully or I will devour your soul." A gulp is heard from Aimi as she prepares to throw all on her last card while thinking: "Sorry mother, sorry father, sorry everyone. I will now step on a path that ends in only one way, me not being human anymore. But at least I will be able to live free again." Then Aimi rised her voice, tears flow down her check: "Break our bond, our contract and I shall give you my body and soul. I shall become your daughter in return and with time a demon." Alaki's mouth widens in a smile and she says: "Very well daughter of Manu, I accept your offer. I brake the bond, void the contract take your soul and christen you as my daughter."
    As Alaki finished talking a mark appeared on her chest, Alaki's mark, proof that the demon took her soul. Aimi watched as tears flowed out of her eyes and then found herself back in the real world about to be sexually assaulted by demons. She let out a scream, no a howl of a beast and ripped trough the demon holding her down, clenching his demon core in her teeth and then crushing it down in one bite. She felt strong, stronger then ever, as her body, no longer bound by human limits, became much more powerful. She looked at the other demons and took up her bat and said: "Come on are you so weak that you can't take down one little soulless girl?" With that the battle begun, the hardest battle in Aimi's life.
    By the time when it dawned all that was left was dust and Aimi's blood whose owner disappeared long before down. During the battle that body was abused, torn apart and pierced multiple times. Only to reconstruct again and again until the last demon fell. Aimi knew as she walked on in the night that she was no longer human, she was a Soulless, a human which sold her soul to a demon and will turn into a demon sooner or later. At best she had five to six years, of which the last two she would probably be hardly identifiable as a human. At worst she could turn inside a single day.
    Finally she spotted a public bathroom, entered it, occupied one of the stalls and begun puking and puking, almost like if she was puking out her hopes about the future. Thoughts rushed trough her head: "I will never have a child." *Puke* "I will never see Yue's smile again." *Puke* "I will never have a happy University life." *puke* "I will never ...". That last thought was unfinished as she collapsed next to the toilet out of the mental stress.

    No good deed unpunished (open)
    When Aimi came to she was in a unknown room, but with a known face in front of me, Yue's father, which noticing that I woke up said: "Before I say my thanks young lady are you perchance hungry or thirsty." Aimi shook my head in response and he went on: "Okay. Then first except my sincere thanks. If you didn't send my family and me to that theme park while those demons were there." Aimi just responds: "It is okay, I just followed what my heart told me was right." Yue's father shakes his head and says: "How can you tell that! I got your info from the Shinmeiryuu Central Administration. You gave your soul so you could defeat those demons! You could have run! Why do you just accept that?" Aimi smiled from the bottom of her hear while answering: "Because, no good deed goes unpunished, still I shall follow my heart and do good deeds." Yue's father looks at her and says: "You are to good for a person for the IDS young miss. However you deserve to live the rest of your short human life as you see fit, but I do have a offer for you. Enroll in the Seventh Tokyo Shimeiryuu School, there are rumors about two persons there that when working together can change fate. Go there and there might be hope and even if not, you of all people should deserve a normal High School life." Aimi accepted, having nothing to lose from this and parted the man with: "Goodbye and remember that no good deed goes unpunished."
    A month later Aimi was boarding the train to Tokyo and her life in the Seventh Shinmeiryuu School while Yue's father was missing, presumed dead after an extermination mission had gone wrong. Reading that in the newspapers Aimi just thought: "I told him so," as the train swished trough the landscape and towards Tokyo...

    Psychological Profile: As one expert put it: "Imagine a plush toy that can feel. It has been torn apart to a million pieces and then rebuilt without using any information how it looked like and held in place with a number of painful needles and dipped into a jug of acid to seal the connections and maybe your would be able to get a slight grasp in the mind of Sugii Aimi. To put it simple she is broken so much that it is a wonder she still can function as a human being. Much less appear to function as normally as she does."
    Yes Sugii Aimi was broken at one point. And put back together by the whims of a demon. Yet even than the trauma was not something that one's subconsciousness forgets that easily. So when Sugii Aimi was broken once again she broke to the point of no return, or at least she should have. But whatever was driving Sugii Aimi forward allowed her to keep a corer stone to rebuild. That unknown force that drove her forward was etched in her faith in two simple sentences: "No good deed goes unpunished. Still I shall follow my heart and do good deeds." Thanks to that Sugii Aimi will always rebuild herself around her wish to always remain true to whatever force was behind those two sentences.
    After the deal with the demon Aimi had lost almost all hope, but a new one was lit in her thanks to the words of Yue's father.
    Aimi was a cheerful and loud girl, but having lost most of her hopes and being hurt over and over she became quiet and serious. Only her kindness endures the erosion of her mind and soul.
    She likes her bat.
    She dislikes when people try to talk to her.
    She doesn't love anything.
    She hates Alaki.

  18. "Make a normal character" Gamer says.
    When none of the other characters is remotely normal.

  19. Well a "ordinary" character. And by "ordinary" I am referring to the IDS' definition of "ordinary" which is pretty much "anyone who can't kill a military unit on its own"
  20. Colour me curious! Though I haven't read everything quite yet. Just here to express my interest in joining! ^^
