Animus...thats what they called beings like us. Something traumatizing would happen and then from that certain circumstance you were given an animal ability that would help you whenever you get into a similar situation...or any horrible situation in general. There was a boy who almost drowned and nobody would help him so he became a merman. There was a girl who had a drunken father that would beat her so she'd run into the dark forest not knowing where she was going so she'd grow bat ears and wings to see better and get away from danger. Another boy was locked up and beaten almost half to death so he'd grow wings to fly away. Some of these creatures joined together to survive others sit alone and suffer. These are their stories. (This was inspired by Anima the Manga) The city of Azu was amazing and busy. It was a time of simple pleasures where the children would go out and play all day until it became night time to farming natural crops on a regular basis. Yes it was simple and gorgeous. However when you walk in the streets you'd better watch out. Animus lives there. Ava Heart looked around, she wore cargo pants and a black tank top with her hair pulled back into a ponytail. She had gotten her powers from the tiger. When she was little her parents threw her out on the streets because she refused to whore herself out to pay for bills. Not knowing what to do and almost being dead she grew claws of the tiger as well as fangs and majestic climbing abilities! She learned to steal food in order to survive. She saw a man carrying a basket of food and with her sack she sprung into action. She ended up stealing almost his entire stock to last for 3 days. She ran back into her home, which was an abandoned underground city. There was a secret latch that nobody except her knew about, she pressed it and her door would open for her.
