With OCs, of course. Canon characters may be mentioned, and one or two may make appearances for the sake of the story, but I'd really rather just use the universe. --- Infinite Stratos: The technology that changed the face of warfare as humanity knew it. In the near future, Japanese scientists have developed a powered exoskeleton, called the "IS" (Infinite Stratos). These suits were quickly proven to be far powerful than any weapon in history - naturally, the world was put at risk. So the distribution of IS units was made to be equal all over the world. But there was still one catch. The units could only be piloted by women. For years, this was the case - it had gotten to the point where it was commonly accepted that a war of the sexes wouldn't last a week. Even with the upset caused by the only male IS pilot in history, Orimura Ichika, society remained largely unaffected. Until the world-renowned genius Terrence Clark, with his team of scientists and engineers, emerged from their years of apparent inactivity. Clark and his team presented to the world their new technology - "IA Units." Infinite Atmos Units. Terrence and his team had not only managed to create powered suits of armour, but they were the team's own creation. No reverse-engineering of the IS units, no espionage, no hacking, nothing. The clincher? The armour could match an IS unit, spec-for-spec. And as they could be piloted by anybody, the world soon saw that the face of warfare would change once again. In an attempt to ease the tension between IS users and the newly-revealed IA trainees and pilots, five rookie IA pilots have been enrolled into the academy. You can choose to play either an IS pilot, or an IA pilot. But keep in mind that this won't just be a slice-of-life with mech suits. World leaders, generals, activists and the common citizen will fight tooth-and-nail to have their say, and to have their part in determining the course of history. Out there, it's a political bloodbath. But the academy holds the hope for the future - whether you can prove that IA and IS pilots can coexist is up to you. The world is watching, and waiting.
