    (An example of a Padrone with her Soul-Mate in her hand.)
    The RP will be taking place in present day. All non-GM characters must start out with a level one Soul-Mate.

    City of Souls “That was what this place was called… The City of Souls. There are probably many other Padrones within the world but in our city, Tokyo, is where most of the activity seems to be. Everywhere I go I see dead people, and they can be so noisy sometimes. Their conversations are annoying and they are pretty uninteresting, except for the ones that talk about a certain organization known as Pieces. The Souls apparently get a bad vibe from them, and that group apparently has some pretty strong Soul-Mates. The Souls can sense it. They can sense their bonds and they can sense their bloodlust, or at least that’s what I have been hearing. I have no idea if they are real or not, but the Souls tend to be really scared of ‘em so I guess I should believe them. The group apparently causes a lot of murders or something like that. I was even stopped by a Soul once telling me that every murder or disaster is caused by Pieces. Actually, never mind believing them. That’s probably a lie anyways.”


    Tokyo Tokyo is the city that has the most Padrones, Soul-Mates, and Souls. The City of Souls is what most Padrones and Souls call the area. There is a potential that other areas of the world may have Souls and Padrones but no evidence has been found yet. Tokyo is quite a bustling city with many attractions and skyscrapers. It is as if the people of the city are always busy. The sidewalks are littered with people and the roads with cars.


    The Soul-Base System (open)

    The Soul-Base System
    The Soul-Base system is the general rules and terms for usage of Soul-Mates and anything to do or relate to Souls. Souls are the spirit forms of those who have passed on, whether it be a human or an animal. Inanimate objects or things that have not had life cannot become Souls or become Soul-Mates in anyway, shape, or form. Souls can be obtained and confined in objects called Catalysts. Catalysts have to be of great significance to said individual, so it cannot be some item that you have just achieved in life. They have had to be with you for at least one year. Catalysts can be any inanimate object, ranging from teddy bears to pencils. Even an old can of a soft drink can be a Catalyst as long as it has been with you for a year, even though that is quite unethical and unhygienic.

    Soul-Mates are dead beings that have been confined within a Catalyst. You do not have to know the Soul for them to be your Soul-Mate, although that would be better in some regards. Bonds between Souls and their Padrone are what make the Souls better in the long run. If the Soul was a person or animal that had a great bond with you during their life, they will be more obedient and be of better use to you during the time they spend in the Catalyst. Padrones may also form bonds with their Soul-Mates within Catalysts, even though that can prove to be more difficult.

    Manifestation is when the Soul-Mate within the Catalyst transforms into an item, ranging from a gun to a large axe. Manifestation requires part of the Padrone’s energy to use, and that depends on what bond the Padrone has with their Soul-Mate. You must focus your energy to manifest your Soul-Mate. A word of releasing is usually used to manifest a Soul-Mate, such as “release” or “rise”. A better bond means less energy to use Manifestation and a lesser bond means more of the Padrone’s energy to manifest the Soul-Mate. Soul-Mates may only be manifested for a minute to an hour and in that time period the Padrone’s energy will be drained. Any longer than an hour of Manifestation will cause the Padrone to start losing days on their lifespan.

    Rare items called Soul-Books are Catalysts which are multi-layered. They have the ability to hold multiple Soul-Mates, based on how many pages the book owns. More Soul-Mates means less bonds (in some cases) and more energy expended to manifest them. Soul-Books also have the ability to write a description of each soul within each page, like a biography. There are only eight Soul-Books in existence.

    Catalysts can be destroyed, although this is sometimes detrimental because you have to find yet another item that has been with you for at least a year to capture another Soul within. When a Catalyst is destroyed, Soul-Mates tend to say the most regretful thing they did in their past before going to the afterlife completely. Soul-Mates that were in Catalysts that have been destroyed can never return.

    Each Soul has a type, attribute, and level and there are currently three types, attributes, and levels known. More may arise within the future, but who knows?



    Soul Traits (open)

    Soul Traits How does one exactly know if they are seeing a Soul? There are a few ways to tell, ranging from appearance or how they talk. Not all Souls are talkative or noisy, but most are. They are dead, losing all regret that they once had in their past life. Souls also have transparency by their legs, so a Padrone will be able to slightly see through a Souls leg area. Souls can also phase through buildings and most modern day structures. The only places that Souls cannot phase into are religious areas such as churches.



    Types (open)

    Types
    Sword Type Soul: Sword Souls are Souls that can be used to manifest swords. These Souls tend to have grudges held against others and are quite cocky.

    Axe Type Soul: Axe Souls are Souls that can be used to manifest axes. These Souls are usually righteous and brave, loving the feeling of battle.

    Range Type Soul: Range Type Souls are souls that can be used to form many ranged items, going from bows to guns. These Souls are usually humble and tend to be quiet. Note that Range Type Souls use energy as ammo or arrows. They are usually used by those who have had many Catalysts or know how to expend energy well.

    Mace Type Soul: Mace Type Souls are Souls that can be used to form bludgeoning items, ranging from clubs to spiked maces. The Souls are usually arrogant and headstrong. They do not like Sword Type Souls.

    Magic Type Soul: Magic Type Souls are Souls that can use magic abilities. Their type of attribute displays the element of magic that they can use.



    Attributes (open)

    Attributes
    Fire Type Attribute: The fire type attribute gives Souls the abilities to use flame based abilities, such as manifesting fire.

    Water Type Attribute: The water type attribute gives Souls the abilities to use water based abilities, such as water manipulation and the creation of ice.

    Earth Type Attributes: The earth type attribute gives Souls the ability to use earth based abilities, such as moving dirt around within the air to moving rocks around. Note that Earth Type Attributes can manipulate metals such as steel.

    Wind Type Attribute: The wind type attribute gives Souls the ability to use wind based attacks, such as increasing air currents and generating fast winds.



    Levels (open)

    Levels
    Level One: You have a poor bond with your Soul-Mate.

    Level Two: You have an OK bond with your Soul-Mate.

    Level Three: You have a great bond with your Soul-Mate.

    Note that levels determine what kind of weapon you will be using. You cannot have a level one Soul-Mate yet wield a sword that goes to the heavens. Padrones can tell the type of level their Soul-Mates have based on their weapons appearance once it is manifested and how their Soul-Mate speaks to them. Padrones and Soul-Mates speak telepathically and out loud. It is up to the Soul-Mate to determine which way he or she wants to speak.

    Padrones and Soul-Mates battling together usually make their bond stronger, causing them to level up faster. Weapons will change appearance and gain more power after a level up.



    Soul Capture (open)

    Soul Capture
    Capturing Souls within Catalysts can be easy or hard. It depends on the Padrone. Capturing Souls will probably seem awkward to the normal mortal. It involves throwing the Catalyst at the Soul and chanting an incantation of sealing.

    “Oh being of death, become my Soul-Mate. You shall regain life once more as a being by my side, and you shall not be alone anymore.”

    To increase the power of Soul Capture, one must render the incantation loud. The louder it is, the less resistance that the soul can give. Once it has been captured, the newly acquired Soul will telepathically whisper its attribute to the Padrone, the default level being one. Newly acquired Soul-Mates cannot be used until an hour after Soul-Capture.



    Padrone Abilities (open)

    Padrone Abilities
    Padrones are randomly chosen from humans. A human will know that they have become a Padrone once they see an odd tattoo form upon their shoulder and also gain the ability to see the dead. That means that they will be able to see old loved ones and even victims of murders. The incantation will sound throughout the Padrones mind and they either have the choice to write it down and memorize the incantation or completely ignore the call. The voice will also ring out through the Padrone’s head, saying that they must go to a Soul and say the incantation with an item they adore before disappearing from their mind.



    Pieces: The Soul-Mate Terrorist Organization (open)

    Pieces: The Soul-Mate Terrorist Organization Most Padrones in the city of Tokyo will have at least heard of the organization known as Pieces. Souls converse about them quite a bit, mainly about the fact that they target important and large places and areas. Not one single Padrone has a definite idea of why they are doing these things, and it is the Padrone’s choice to check out what is happening or let more explosions and mysterious accidents happen around the city. There may be a surprise waiting for any Padrone that checks out the areas that are attacked or predicted to be attacked.

    Cat Catherine Foxx

    [​IMG]

    Age: 24

    - Personality - Biography -

    | Sweet | merciless...
    Catherine has always been kind, friendly, and just all around sweet. Some compare her to being a sentimental piece of candy that looks and tastes sweet until you reach its mystery core. Which is quite appropriate considering her background which eludes even the best background checks. But this all goes overlooked as she is the most understanding of people, but that mystery core is something merciless and violent as they come. Catherine was first brought into the force as an American hound, but then after becoming a Padrone, she became the inquisitor for the biggest Padrone agency in Tokyo. She was born in America but raised in Eastern Prussia with two military strong parents as she attended a honorable military academy and exemplified the goals and standards of the academy until it crashed and burned three years later.

    | Sentimental | detatched...
    When it comes to memories, nostalgia, and her possessions that she had when she lived in Prussia she can be very sentimental. Catherine has many items that she holds quite dear, and she rarely ever speaks fondly of them. Unless she is intoxicated of course, but one can never hold too much stock into the mirthful rants she makes while under the influence. In her apartment that overlooks the busiest of Tokyo streets, there is not a framed photo of family, jewelry box, or any hint of personal touches other than a large chest and armoire that doesn't have the same modern look as normal Japanese furniture in this day and age. What is kept inside is known only to Cat and her own pet, Barnaby the fennec fox. The rambunctious and perceptive animal was a going away gift from her younger sister, who died in the academy fire five years ago. This subject is very touchy, and if pressed about will turn her into an unfeeling ice princess. Yet another thing about fair Catherine "Foxx", she does not appreciate being pushed to do anything she doesn't want to do. As soon as she begins to feel trapped, her emotional senses turn completely off and you get to see the prussian of hers shine through.

    | Passionate | anxiety...
    There is nothing wishy washy about Ms. Foxx, she does everything with the passion and heat of fire. Her intensity can sometimes ignite other's fires as no person wants to feel weak when standing up next to such a woman as herself. She does not be little or treat anyone differently, she doesn't have to. Something about her appearance, even though highly attractive, screams "Shape up!". This fiery passion of her shows its bright little head in every aspect of her life whether it be her job or survival. And recently when she found the twins she has been diligent in improving her relationship to them. This passion though, comes with a price. The price of anxiety and paranoia for Catherine. It all began after the fire after her sister, whom she had been very close to. Anna, however, had hated Catherine with a passion so great that when Cat accidentally captured Anna's soul she it had nearly killed her. The story being Catherine returned home to put her beloved younger sister in the ground five years ago, upon her arrival the abstract tattoo of twin phoenixes was burned into her skin. Literally, Cat woke up to her skin burning in the night. The next day she found her sister lamenting at her grave mere hours after her burial, Catherine thrilled to see her sister ran to hug her. The ruby necklace around Cat's neck had captured Anna, and moments later her chest was pressed against a fire hot liquid sword. Anna had hated Catherine since her graduation months earlier, her passionate hatred making her into an enemy's sword wielded by none other than her sister.

    | Hopeless Romantic | ice queen...
    Love is an absolutely fascinating idea that Catherine has recently become obsessed with. Living in Tokyo, Japan has introduced her to the fantastic world of fandoms, anime, manga, and most of all... shipping. Though she has the most serious of jobs in Tokyo, she still has a little teenage girl that squeals over romance. Sometimes she spaces out in her down time, thinking about how her favorite characters would be so perfect together. Not only this, but she has become quite the flirt and romantic. Her handsome vixen-like features make it easy for her to find new conquests. Success is nothing to her, and in fact this mind numb look out on love is what makes her so emotionless to anyone's advances but her own. But that was the past. Though she is still hopelessly romantic, she has stopped trying to make a connection. Instead she only sleeps with the men she finds appropriate, leaving them to their own devices hours after. Heartbreak is something she was not able to deal with, when she fell for her partner. She fell hard.

    | Enigmatic | deceitful
    Past covered in mystery, present shrouded by souls, and future thrown into pitch black, Catherine's fate has always been unlucky. Though by taking but a glance at her one couldn't tell that her past is nothing but darkness and the pain of Prussian training. Cat is a survivor, and this has made her a seductive enigma. Her mystery attracting her target or intended with but a simple sly grin. No one really knows the real Catherine, and this is perfectly fine with Cat. She would rather her past stay separate from her today. The woman has a thing about new things, and there is always that desperate hope she holds in her heart that she will never see one of her past acquaintances again. This enigmatic effect she has, makes it easy for her to play any role she wishes. This deceit is something that has helped her climb the ladder in the agency she works for. But if anyone were to ever find out her secret, she would become one hunted lady.

    Twins

    Rosey & Daisy
    "Raziel and Abaddon"

    [​IMG]

    Personality:
    Rosey and Daisy are very different, but together they are harmonious as twins often are. Rosey is more headstrong and outspoken compared to Daisy's levelheaded humble persona. The two are definitely siblings, as in the middle of practice they tend to get into arguments, and go off on their own thing in the palms of Cat. When angry at each other, they refuse to "waste" their energy on anything but being angry at one another. However, in a fight, they connect with both each other and their wielder. The two are trusty weapons in a tight spot, and Catherine has become quite fond of them.

    Backstory:
    Rosey and Daisy have a particularly violent back story as they are one of the rare child murder cases that went unsolved for many years. Before they came into Catherine's possession as her duel pistols, they were alive. They lived in a happy home, and had a happy life in North Korea. Then there were political uproars and protests. Soon ammunition was flying through the air every other day, and the twin's parents were both big political figureheads. After school on a fateful day, they were kidnapped. Within two days, after the girls' parents refused to pay the terrorists, who would later be named part of Pieces, the two were dismembered on live feed for the parents to watch. Their death was extremely bloody and violent, but since they were young no grudges were held. As Soul's they scoured the afterlife for someone to care about them once more. Catherine was the poor Padrone who had to put up with them. And on the first day she was hired as a hound. The catalyst was one ivory ring, and one ebony ring, that Catherine had been wearing that day. One ring on each hand, the twins had been pestering her all day until finally Catherine clasped both twins on their wrists and captured them. The twins are Catherine's third soul mate, and final if she has her way.

    Soul-Mate Type:
    Ranged Duel Pistols

    Soul-Mate Attribute:
    Fire

    Soul-Mate Level:
    Level One - Cherry handled 10mm Pistols

    Level One (open)
    [​IMG]

    Abbadon and Raziel

    In this form the twins are at their weakest, with right heavy ammo as Rosey is the dominant twin. Left ammo is slow to react as Daisy is unsure and does not react well to Catherine's overbearing passion and demands. Though they have their moments, Catherine normally has to fight with her two soul mates to get them to focus. But Rosey often just yells back while Daisy cries and goes very quiet and is unresponsive.


    Level Two (open)
    [​IMG]

    Grave Diggers

    In their second tier forms, the twins are stronger and more in sync with each other, but even less in sync with Catherine. The energy power is given a huge boost and the accuracy is at its best, but the responsiveness is lacking as the girls are most of the time too much involved with the sudden boost of power. Catherine has to work on getting both girls to react with her. Eventually though, the more desperate Catherine becomes, the girls will click.


    Level Three (open)
    [​IMG]

    Daisy Pushers

    The third tier form of the twins is peaking, as the accuracy, fire power, and synchronicity is near perfect. The three are connected in a triangle pattern instead of on a different plane or a line separate from an angle. These guns are lightweight and easily handled by Catherine. In this form the twins argue much less and instead work together and can even better Catherine's perception of things.


    Level Three Fuse (open)
    [​IMG]
    Harmony

    Third Fuse is the most powerful the twins can form into, when the bond between all three become perfect Catherine will be able to fuse the twins. By simply tossing both guns into the air, the twins will pull to each other like magnets and then finally form a massive shotgun that has the blast of a double barrel with an extra push. This gun is symbolic for the twin's violent death, as it literally can rip a man in half with a single shell.
