This RP is NOT Accepting Characters
In the year 2021, the Earth was on the brink of war. Russia and United States had gone to war after the assassination of the newly elected president. There was no real evidence that Russia was the behind this unforeseen event. However, the people wanted retribution. After threats against the US, Russia was the top suspect. Soon both began preparing for war. All other countries begged and pleaded them not to, yet they did not stop. War broke out and neither side was going anywhere. During this time of turmoil, the US Secretary of Defenses managed to obtain popularity among citizens, and soon seized control. However, he was truly a wicked man. He had no remorse. He launched several nuclear missiles on Russia. Russia fell in a matter of weeks... The other nations were outraged by this use of WMDs. They declared war on the US. Thus World War III had begun. The war had only raged for two years, before the unexpected happened. Hveravellir, a volcano in Iceland that has lied dormant since 950, erupted violently. The area surrounding it was covered in lava. Arising from the lava, and descending from the ash, an obsidian, and brimstone door took form. Though it was black, one could see hints of red in its glassy frame. It opened, and as if the floodgates had been released, demons spewed forth. Upon seeing this awful spectacle, the Divine Counsel quickly met, and began debating the correct course of actions. By the time they had finished deciding, much of humanity had been decimated. They built Horizon, a floating city just below the Heavens, as a safe place for Humans. It is now the year 2163, and little ground has been gained.

What to Expect
This is an Intermediate Roleplay! Participants are expected to meet that standard.
This never really seems to go very far, so this time I'm taking a different Approach. It will focus more on plot. Character development and relations will still be important, but there won't really be a "free-time" section specified in the Role Play schedule. There will be expected deadlines that I will expect you to post by. They will likely be once or twice a week. If you are returning from one of its previous incarnation, be warned. It will be more intense
First of all you are expected to read this section. This will be an Action Role play, with Drama, Comedy, and Romance undertones so long as you guys play it out that way. This roleplay will be moving in a series of Arcs. During each Arc, characters will be split into groups. This could be anything: One group Humans and another Angels, a mix of Humans and Angels, etc. Arcs may have combat posting problem solving or investigating. Don't worry all of that will be roleplayed out, and there will be no random numbers generator.
I will give deadlines for players to post as their characters. During this time you can post as many times(with reason) to interact with characters, but by the deadline, the story will move on, and if you miss too many deadlines, your character may die.
A little on Humans:
It is currently the third generation of humans since they were evacuated. Many of those in the Academy have never known earth as home, unless they grew up in a safe zone. Humans stand very little chance against a fight with demons or even angels. To compensate, they have began to forge "Pacts" with demons. This grants them more power, and the demon will fight beside them.
A little on Angels:
Angels and Humans can indeed fall in love, have children together, yada yada, yada. However there are no Half Angels. Anglicism is treated similar to recessive trait passed down from the parents. That means that it is possible for two Humans to have an Angel child, if they both have one of the "recessive" genes. Angels are holy beings. Whether or not they are truly created by a "God" is unknown to humans. Being holy beings they are forbidden to forge backs with Demons.

Places in the World
Earth is the home of the Humans. Well now only some parts are home to the Humans. These parts are considered safe zones, however demons infiltrating and attacking these safe zones, though rare, are not unheard of. Some have started to move back to these safe zones. The Safe Zones are as follows:
The largest residing South American Continent, yet has the lowest population based on size. It is on the edge of the Amazon forest in Brazil. Kinich is a very large area making it difficult to protect. The majority of the population here are the military force on earth composed of graduated students of Horizon Academy. It is the Base of Operations on Earth. The majority of the space is used for military training and facilities.
100,558 square miles(260,444 square km)
-Current Population: 306,007
The Safe Zone of Loxdon is found in the Appalachian Mountain range, and parts of Virginia and North Carolina. It is the provider of the majority of minerals used by the Human forces. This safe zone has the least protection and is the most likely to be attacked and overrun. Quite a few requests originate from this zone.
50,346 square miles(130,395 square km)
-Current Population: 219,453
Remus is located in the bogs of Ireland. There are many demons hidden in the marshlands of the island, making Remus one of the more dangerous Zones
30,265 square miles(78,387 square km)
-Current Population: 121,434
The majority of Umezawa is in the Coastal Regions of Japan. This is has made Umezawa a trade port for the Safe Zones. Umezawa provides a fair amount of seafood. In spite of the evacuation of people from earth, Umezawa still holds the culture it did in the days before the demons attacked
13,639 square miles(43,094 square km)
-Current Population: 95,076
(inside of Fort Bismarck)
Located in what was once Germany, Fort Bismarck is the smallest safe zone, but it is in fact the safest. After the area was established, construction quickly began. The safe zone was the first established. It took ten years, and much protection, but eventually they had built a massive fort. It was only a single story at first. Since then it has grown to a five story behemoth that takes up a land mass the size of Wales. It is the center of engineering and technology. However the technology is very functional, and looks primitive even though it is rather advanced,
8,016 square miles(20,761 square km)
-Current Population: 70,970
Horizon is a massive floating city, created by the Angels as a safe haven for the humans. It floats just below the Heavens. Here many humans have made this place their home, however there are plenty of others who wish to see Earth inhabited by humans once more. This was why Horizon Academy was founded.
The realm of Angels. This is a holy place. As such, living Humans are not allowed to enter. There are some exceptions though. Every so often a Human will be summoned to the Heavens. When this happens, they are most likely meeting with the Divine Counsel, the group ruling the Heavens. However, since the arrival of the demons, only five humans have met before the Counsel. One of these people has been Lukas.
A mysterious realm that none have ever seen the inside of. The only known entrance is a massive, ominous door that has appeared in the volcanic regions of Iceland. There is no other information on this realm. It is assumed to be the realm of the Demons
Meet the Characters
Name: Yosuke Kirigawa
Yosuke is a nice guy, but he tends to have trouble with his words. Not quiet or shy or reclusive, no quite the contrary. Its just... His words are either poorly timed, or have another meaning. Often that will result in awkward silence, a round of laughter, or a slap. It has earned him the nickname 'Pervert.' Needless to say, he resents this fact. He is diligent and works well, especially with others, however he is rather explosive when he is angry.
"Tell me again grandma!"
A little brown haired boy sat at the feet of his grandmother as she rocked back and forth in her rocking chair. She smiled at the child. It was warm and affectionate. She had cared for this child since he was born. Truly it was a sad thing. His mother died while giving birth, and his father... He was killed in battle at the hands of the demons that now plagued the Earth. He was raised by his Grandmother. Her family had passed down the stories of Earth since it was abandoned
"Hahah. You really do love hearing about the Earth don't you. Alright then. How can I say no to you.
Well, you see, It is a big ball of dirt and water that is floating out in space..." She continued with that story for quite a while. During it all, the boy listened with an expression of wonder. It was all amazing. Houses on stilts, boats the size of small cities, forests with trees that touch the sky. When she finished she would respond the way she always would
"What I would give to see it all one last time..."
Six years later she grew terribly ill. At the age of 81, she had lived a very long and happy life. As she laid on her death bed, her grandson stayed by her side. One day she looked over at him. He was sleeping beside her.
"Yosuke... My you look so much like your Father... Be strong... Live a long, healthy and happy life for them... I may not be able to see the Earth in its beauty again, but... I know that I will see a land that far... surpasses that beauty..."
The boy laid asleep for a few hours longer. When he awoke, his Grandmother's eyes were closed.
"Grandma?... No... No! Don't leave me! I don't have anyone left..."
He was taken by the Academy by his own request. Next term, he would join the school, and train to fight off the demons. His wish is to finally see the beautiful Earth that he heard so much about as a child.

Name: William (will) Hawk
Will is an honorable angel and a caring soul. He does what he can to help others and never abandons his friends and family. He's normally calm but if you harm his friends or his family he'll make sure that you regret it. However every now and then he has the feeling that there is something dark inside of him.
Will was born in heaven and was raised by his parents to be the person he is today. However he was born with black wings. No one ever knew why both his parents were pure as angels could be yet he was born with black wings. This earned him scrutiny from the other angels. When the demons invaded earth he was one of the first angels to sign up to join the fight against the demons in an attempt to prove to everyone that he isn't evil and that he only wants what is right for humans. However..with each day that goes by with the demons on earth he feels a whisper in the back of his mind. As if something evil was trying to contact him but almost as soon as it comes it is gone again. He only hopes that he will have the chance to prove that he isn't evil before something bad does happen.
Weapon Specialty: Longswords
Weapons: For his enchanted weapon Will has a sword he calls dawn breaker. The sword changes powers during night and day. During the day it has control over flames and gives his flame and air elements a boost. At night it gains control over lightning and enhances his lightning and earth powers.

He also has a large amount of throwing knives that he keeps hidden within his jacket along with knives and smaller blades hidden all across his person.
Rock Wave: He slams summons a large wave of rock spires to impale his opponent.
Lightning bolt: He fires a bolt of electricity at his opponent.

Name: Monica ‘Gadget’ Farez
Standing nearly 5 foot 10 inches she is tall for a girl in general. Beyond that fact her long hair normally can be seen glistening from a good distance away. Her green eyes seem to almost glow and stare as if looking into another world behind you. (No Eye Patch)
To say she is crazy is an understatement. Some say she lost her mind when she saw a person get torn to pieces in front of her and other said she was always that way. It matters not which is true as her personality is as scattered as her mind normally is. She is a curious individual and a very outgoing person. She can normally speak concise sentences but can often get onto rants describing things people have no idea how to do or how to work but her self. She is intelligent beyond words and she is always found messing with something either it be a corpse or something mechanical.
In combat she develops a sort of rage that drives her forward without worry about those around her. She is completely beyond reasoning with when this surges into her. Some call it Demonic possession but the truth is that she loves the fury and blood of combat with a demented curiosity.
Monica’s past is about as dark as the demon’s themselves. She grew up within Fort Bismark which for most would be ideal regarding the safety of it all. Her parents were well known engineers and scientists within the human kind and often left the safety of the fort to seek out anomalies and artifacts that may aid those surviving. It was on one of these exhibitions around the age of eleven that she and a friend of hers went with her parents.
The unthinkable happened in that moment far outside of the gates. They were attacked and her family slaughtered in front of her by an electrical demon. The very ‘Anomaly’ they were coming to check. This impact left her mind scarred as she saw her friend be consumed mere inches from her. It was in that moment that she did something that tricked the demon. The moment the demon reared its massive head towards her she raised her hands “I’ll work with you!” She said specifically keeping the word ‘Serve’ out of it.
The demon reared back and stopped moving its massive talons towards her. It didn’t speak but heard a voice in her mind “What do you have that… assists me..” It said to her. Monica grinned “I have knowledge…” She said making it laughed loudly “What do you have that I! Lord Z’eklaz! Lord of the Mechanical and Electrical Demons do not already have! That bastion…. That... Monstrosity stands in my way… Give me that..” It roared in her mind making her wince. She simply blinked. “Well…. I know of a certain tunnel… I also know the password… I just need something from you.” She said to it out loud. Z’eklaz laughed again “There is no such tunnel… Do you try to seal your death...? Child...” It said in return.
Monica shook her head and now stood up making it bring its head closer. “You... Stand up in my presence.. a mere child! I was leading the demonic forces against your kind... now you stand! Ha!” It roared out loud in a voice that made her ears scream. Monica snarled “Of course I do! I do not sit in the presence of death!” She said with her clothes covered in blood from her family being slaughtered. Z’eklaz tilted its head “You… have potential…” It said before it stood to its full height of nearly five stories. Monica looked up as it grew and noticed how its form seemed to phase out ever so slightly. ‘That is how we didn’t see it…’ She said in her own mind. The Demon looked back down “What do you say, girl… for your life… me to this gate.” It said.
Monica nodded “Oh, For my life I wish for one in return.” She said suddenly. It looked down snuggly “Of course… When we counquer I will make it so.” It said in her mind. Monica grinned “No, I want it ahead of time.” She said quickly. The Demon seemed to shrug “Fine, To this gate now…” It said to her before she looked about at the blank faces of her dead friends and family. She felt fear coursing through her but her mind seemed to have cracked in its entirety. She didn’t care.. Her life was over and if she couldn’t get revenge then she would die… so would everyone else.
She led the Demon to the tunnels entrance and turned towards it. Before she left she took a large staff from her mother and carried it with her. The Demon didn’t seem to notice nor care as it was happily in its own world believeing it on the brink of conquest. When she arrived she turned and the Demon nodded “This is it? Then name… The person you want…” It said. Monica grinned widely “Oh, I choose… Lord Z’eklaz…” She said suddenly making the demon roar. It made to swing at her but stopped as she raised a hand “Nope!” She commanded to it. Z’eklaz roared again and tried once more but couldn’t do it. She raised the key “I command you to be bound… to this… and to my own self… For eternity...” She commanded the demon. It had no choice and followed it grudgingly.
Weapon Specialty: Mechanical
She carries around an odd shapes key like staff with Diamond edged blades giving it excellent skin flaying and slicing.
Lord Z’eklaz –Greater Electrical Demon (Its true form has never been seen but by Monica herself when she tricked it into serving her.) It currently take the form of a suit of powered armor for its only master.
Energymancer- The Deamon lords power has granted her the ability to weave Energy almost like water. She can bend and transfer types of energy either it be Radiation or Electrical. This can be used to power objects and things she makes or as crushing blows added to the weapon she wields at the time.
Growing up in Remus resulted in a fair amount of upper body strength from Remus' main job opportunity; unskilled labor. He also has a tendency to forget crucial components of uniform, so expect to see him without a tie or with his shirt untucked. At least he tried...
"How long till he realizes he ran in the wrong direction?"
"Knowing him, he's either gonna keep going that way until someone turns him around or he falls off Horizon."
Gabe isn't the smartest. Or the richest. Or the most skilled. He's a straight C student in both written and physical classes. He tries his best, but most of the staff figure he's just one of those kids who wasn't meant to make it. Well... there's always an opening for hunting party pack mules, right? While many of the students and teachers say he's destined for failure, it's that disbelief that keeps Gabe going. The hope that he'll show them all that he can get a B- is the reason he keeps trying anyway. He may lack grace and style in his physical classes and he may get simple questions wrong on written exam; but the kid's got heart and a fighting spirit. Gotta give him that, at least. He doesn't have smarts, he doesn't have skill, and he doesn't have grace or talent, but he's got heart. Must be all that Irish in him.
Gabe is from the unremarkable land of Remus. Most folks say that the only exciting things ever to come out of Remus are swamp gas and Irish booze. Back home, Gabe's parents own a tiny restaurant that brings in enough to get by on, but remains nothing more than a cozy little hovel for a quick bite to eat. Once he got old enough, Gabe was faced with the dreaded choice every teenager must face. Either go to school or get a job. Gabe tried working for a year and didn't like it. In the end, he surprised everyone by proclaiming he'd get into Horizon Academy and become a hunter. He surprised everyone even more when his application wasn't rejected. Some of the people back home still wonder if his acceptance was some kind of clerical error and a different, talented, intelligent Gabe somewhere in Fort Bismark was rejected instead.
Along the way, Gabe met his demon. While he had no experience whatsoever with making Pacts or with demons in general, he was pretty sure he could handle one measly demon. However, it wasn't Gabe who initiated the Pact, but rather it was the demon bird Keguich. Something made Keguich, the burning bird, curious about the boy. The bird saw something in the kid and decided to hop on for the ride. Of course, there's always been the feeling that Keguich chose to come with a human willingly for a hidden reason, but... it's probably nothing!
So, with a new demon in tow, Gabe made his merry way to Horizon. Once he was officially a Horizon student, Gabe proceeded to show the world he was excellent at being slightly below average. While he didn't do badly enough to fail or get kicked out of the academy, he wasn't earning any honors either. He could pass the test, but his answers were nothing to write home about. He could hit the target, but he couldn't obliterate it like everyone else was. He was also terrible with pretty much every weapon he tried out. Halberd? Nope. Broadsword? You break it, you buy it. Firearms? The professor still has a few stitches from the 'incident'. Nunchaku? It took hours to get them out of that hole in the wall. After a particularly painful experience with a quarterstaff wielding Gabe, a professor suggested the style that inspired Gabe to train in the art of unarmed combat!
"Maybe you should consider unarmed training. That way you can only hurt yourself."
While he isn't the best around, Gabe can at least hit stuff, and he can get hit. Fight gracefully and skillfully, not really, but he can fight. His technique involves hitting his target really, really hard and if it doesn't work, hit it again; and the kid can take a hell of a beating. Maybe the Irish blood in him makes him stubborn as a mule, but no one can deny that the kid can stand up to a hell of a lot of punishment. With a bit of help from his lazy buddy Keguich, Gabe might actually make something out of punching things. He's come a long way, and he's got a lot to learn (a lot to learn), but little by little he's going to do something great. He's sure of it. The way he sees it, "If you can take it, you can make it."
His other fist.
(Pronounced Keh-gyu-eech. Demons and their dead language names, am I right?)
The Burning Destiny Demon
"So what do you do?"
"Eh, you know. Help you believe in yourself."
"Ha! Good one. But seriously, what do you do? Can I shoot fire? Run really fast? Fly?!"
"No, I help you achieve your destiny. Bring out your full potential and all that. So uh... have faith in yourself."
"So... out of all the demons in the world... you're the one that doesn't do anything."
"Well, when you put it like that..."
Gabe could've been riding lightning or making rocks shoot at stuff, or even firing lasers out of his eyes or something cool. Instead, Keguich sort of just sits around on a perch all day eating sunflower seeds. Oh, and he won't stop talking. Give him a tiny topic and he'll ramble on for hours about things. He's probably the most talkative demon in existence. His actual powers, if he has any, are unknown and nobody knows if all his mumbo jumbo about destiny and fate and all that are true or if he's just making it all up for an easy life of roosting and snacking. Either way, destiny and fate aren't gonna get Gabe that B minus.
Unlike most demons, Keguich manifests himself in a pretty presentable fashion. Staff at the school have classified him as a demon of fates, an entity that looks for an individual it feels has potential in order to bind with them. It's why it'll present itself as something nice to look at in order to attract rather than intimidate. A fate demon grows stronger as its host grows stronger, eventually giving the host its power so the host can continue to grow. Someday, Keguich might be able to do more than talk sass and leave feathers everywhere. By helping its host, the demon and human form a symbiotic relationship with one another and can become quite powerful. Fate demons are among the rarest demons out there, with only a handful ever encountered. However, most never achieved full potential since it's up to the host to carry the relationship, and failure is possible.
Keguich likes sunflower seeds (no salt), wood perches, red headed girls, and squawking loudly at other birds.
Gabe can have faith in himself. Ha! Just kidding. He hasn't learned any meaningful powers yet.
He's just a guy who punches things really, really hard.
Name: Lyle Heeley
View attachment 80321
Personality: Loud, and uses vulgar language. Tends to be very lazy and only puts in a hundred percent effort if he is interested in whatever he is doing. He could care less on how others view him, he wasn't put on the earth to appeal to the people. If he isn't on the battle field, then he's sleeping in his dorm, and half of the time he barely shows up to classes, which the staff members always scold him for. If there is anything people think he cares for, its drinking, smoking, and hooking up with chicks, angel or human, can't really have a preference in this world now. But really, all he wants is for the world to be rid by demons, to have it not as hostile, easier on the future generations, and easier on himself, so he could do all those things without a demon on his arse.
Shadow was a big part of Lyles life, It was once his fathers demon, but in a horrible accident right in his very home, his father and mother was attacked. His mom being an angel fought beside his father, and his father being human used his demon to fend off the monster. But towards the end of the fight, right before his father died in front of him, he transferred his demon to Lyle, not wanting to leave his son unprotected, and to save Shadow, Lyle took the pact with the demon, And Shadow made a promise to keep Lyle safe. After the death of his father, Lyle become a rebellious teenager, and his mother tried her hardest to keep him out of trouble, but she rarely accomplished that, from drugs, to stealing, to even drinking underage. So one day she convinced Lyle to go to The Horizon academy, to become a demon hunter like his father, even gave him an enchanted sword, and his fathers pistols.
The first year was tough, not having much combat experience, he was in constant danger, if it weren't for his demon at his side, he would've surely died, but even then there was close calls. It eventually got to the point where Lyle decided to do nothing but focus on combat training, and that's all he ever did while at the academy, He trained so much, that he became a very decent fighter, if not one of the best. But like always, there's more to learn then just fighting. At first all he did was study on demons, but it got to the point where he just couldn't keep up, his attention span wasn't helping either. So in year two, he just became one of the laziest students at horizon, and has seen doing things that doesn't his moral image. (hooking up girls, caught smoking several times, and has been found to have a bottle of whiskey in his dorm) But he is still proficient when it comes to missions, just not classes.
Weapon Specialty: Heavy sword.
The Black Death
View attachment 80328
A rather large sword with magical properties. When held by Lyle, it weighs nothing, which allows him to swing it with ease. But anyone else who dares to pick it up, can't move it no matter how hard they try, as it is always binded to Lyle. The sword can also teleport back to the user when needed be.
Basic firearms Lyle uses When he wants some distance from the enemy, or he combos it with the sword.
The name says it all, a shadow. Something that never leaves Lyle, no matter what, in daylight or in the darkness, Lyle has a shadow. Now this shadow can change its form, normally is seen as Lyles body figure (as a normal shadow would be) but when needed be it can change shape, move around the ground and other surfaces, can even come up from the ground become some black solid figure with white eyes. It can move with incredible speed, Normally impaling its victims with shadow spikes, or strangling its victims by creeping up onto foes and taking them out. It can even posses enemies, as long as Shadow is strong enough to keep control of it, The shadow is also found to be a defensive being when its not attacking, sprouting up from the ground around Lyle to block incoming attacks, and the only way to truly hurt this demon, is to hurt Lyle, without Lyle, the demon could not live, which is why the pact is made. The Shadow Demon is always having a conversation with Lyle, it also sometimes speaks with others, Despite its intimidating voice, it can be quite friendly to people it finds likable and jokes with Lyle on certain topics. The gender to the demon is unknown, but based off of the voice, one can guess it is male.
Skills: Lyle can teleport short distances rapidly, leaving clouds of dark smoke each time he disappears.
night vision, Lyle can see in complete darkness.
Sean is lazy and easily annoyed or bored. He doesn't care much about what is going to happen next or what happened in the past, Sean's mind is set in the now. This mindset leaves him oblivious to the consequences of his actions and at times forgetful. He has been known to stare off into "space" when he is thinking and in this space he somehow "leaves" his body, lost in thought.
Sean can enter what is known as murderous intent. In this state he takes on berserker rage ignoring pain, but still susceptible to damage, but also not truly enraged. While the true Sean is lost in thought about this or that the murderous one begins to take focus of the situation and results to violence no matter the situation. The true fruit of Edispu's and his teachers' training is shown in this state.
Sean's Will Power!
When Sean is not in murderous intent his reasoning and logic are his strongest weapons opposed to his brawn. Sean is much smarter and more understanding when he is focused.
Sean grew up in the safe haven of Loxdon. Life in Loxdon remained peaceful for the most part. You still had the negativity that lingered in the human race themselves. The negativity that drove the mind to think up dastardly things like rape, murder, stealing and war... or eating someone limb for limb. Sean grew up while there was a serial killer on the loose and his targets were always men, tall and stocky, fit for any battle or war. The crime scenes were always in public places so all could see the gaping holes in the chests of the men. Sean dealt with this sight everyday as he came back from playing ball with his friends.
The murders continued throughout Sean's life, but began to draw nearer to the path he walked when coming back from school or playing ball. One day when Sean was walking back home and a rabid dog got loose and chased him down, Sean just coming back from playing ball grabbed his bat and whacked the mangy mutt out of the park. Sean then continued with life until he turned ten and his life was turned upside down by the demon whose name was upside backwards; Edispu.
Edispu approached Sean one night and spoke to him. Sean looked down to see a dog with a tail of bone. Sean's first reaction to the sight you ask? He gripped his bat and whacked it backwards. Edispu was surprised that the boy could see him and that he hit him at all. So, after recovering Edispu tracked the boy down and would just harvest his soul forcefully. Again Edispu was hit with a bat, but twice. This cycle kept going until Edispu decided to give up. The kid was obviously not going to give his soul up anytime soon, but Sean was intrigued as to who the demon was. Thus, Sean and the serial killer demon Edispu both took a detour that night and had a conversation that ultimately led to Sean making a pact with the demon in exchange for demonic souls once he made it to Horizon, but if he didn't or died Sean's soul would forever belong to Edispu.
Bat. Your everyday wooden or aluminum bat sold by the demon soul eater, Edispu!
Edispu's Soul Reaper is an unbreakable bat that exists on both plains (Gaia and Astral) and was lost on Gaia when the war first originated. Edispu's weapon is made to fit the beholder and when the child Sean stumbled upon it the weapon was made to fit the unsuspecting grade-schooler as a aluminum bat. In addition to its immortality it also has the ability to reap the souls of the dead.
Edispu is always hungry (being the demon meant to eat all the souls of mankind in a day can make you like that) and it tends to make him a little grumpy. As a result he comes across rude to new people and uncaring of Sean, when he depends on the boy and his bat for food.
Interaction and Appearance:
Edispu's body is the dog as seen above, but he stands with the anatomy of a human or dog if he so chooses. The dog has no vocal ability. As a result the hypnotized soul of a man
named Morgan Freemanresides in the skull and speaks at the same time of his thoughts. Meaning Edispu cannot have a private thought. He cannot be seen by humans who do not have pacts or access to the Astral plane.
Powers and Abilities:
Edispu has the ability to breath what is called soul fire. Soul fire's strength is dependent on the amount of souls Edispu has collected, which by now is numerous.
Edispu can also hijack the memories of souls making it easy for him to interrogate and get his way.
Edispu's body is intangible on Gaia, but a weapon like his Soul Reaper or the like, that exists on both plains or just the astral can hit him. He can control this tangibility at will. A demon however can touch him, hit him, etc. no matter where he lies.
Edispu's teeth can bite through anything and can exist at will on the Gaian plain.
Edispu's skull can be worn like a helmet to protect him.
Edispu can see a person's soul, but if they live he cannot reap it because it is protected by the heavens. A demon on the gaian plane has taken over a gaian object and thus he needs a human like Sean to reap these souls.
Sean can utilize soul fire, his however is dependent on Edispu's condition as it is a direct use of his soul. This fire affects all who come in contact with it, (Besides Edispu) even Sean himself. Due to its drawback Sean can only summon it via Edispu's Soul Reaper.
Sean's Soul Fire ability's strength is not only determined by his Demon's condition, but his Soul's own condition. If Sean's Soul becomes too corrupt with the negative feelings any teenage boy is bound to run into, Edispu can tap deeper into Sean's soul granting him more Soul Power, but less Soul Control. His mental state greatly affects this as well.
Sean's Will Power!
Sean when normal has an excellent control of Soul Fire able to even steal Edispu's from him, but this control sacrifices the damage it does.
Sean can see and reap souls as well.
Samuel is a member of the Divine council, who has been assigned as the head of the angelic forces. He often never leaves Horizon however, and prefers to head the forces from behind a desk with maps and strategies. However, he is very capable fighter, and perhaps the best hunter the Angels have. As a person he is level-headed and approachable.
A battle hardened Hunter from fort Bismark, who has emerged victorious in his journeys. When Samuel was assigned Head of House Aether, he pushed to have Lukas assigned Head of House Gaia. He was summoned to the Divine Counsel and spoke with them directly. He has been the only human to speak to the council, and one of the very few living humans allowed entrance into The Heavens. He is intimidating likely due to his mechanical arm(Which he lost in a battle), and his (for lack of a better word) Badass Attitude
