It was the year 2020 when they first appeared in our world, signaled by strange occurrences we now label as supernatural. They are known as "youkai," spirit-like beings with various powers and abilities. Soon enough, the United Nations assigned the United States and Japan, the countries with the most youkai emergencies, to create an organization that would be responsible for the capture and research: the Supernatural Forces Survey. The SFS was structured like a military organization, its agents bearing primary authority in Japan and the United States as well as throughout the entire world. They classified these youkai into four types: Aetherus, Daemon, Phantom, and Specter. Only five Aetherus exist, and they were the first to appear in the world followed subsequently by the thousands of Daemons, Phantoms, and Specters that suddenly appeared in our world. Although it remains undiscovered that the five Aetherus had children with humans, various other youkai had begun to do so beginning the year after. It was as such that the SFS took some of these children in to be trained as soldiers and trackers, as well as test subjects if they were unfortunate enough. It has been 19 years since the first of the children of the Aetherus was born, and it is now 2039. Most of these children have grown up and many who hadn’t before now realize their powers. As one of the Aetherus emerges again with a rather dark disposition and another aids the SFS to further their own goals, the world will become a battleground.

Species Basics​

[slider]
{slide}The Aetherus

The Aetherus are held at a high standard by the other youkai, and seem to be the de facto leaders of youkai society. Very little is known about them, other than they seem to be aligned with aura, earth, fire, water, and wind respectively.{/slide}

{slide}Daemons

Named as such because of their similarities in their true forms to those of demons, daemons all share some influence over fire, though it varies widely- from projecting fireballs to being impervious to flames- between each daemon. They can survive without being bound to an object and can maintain a corporeal form as long as they wish.{/slide}

{slide}Phantoms

Phantoms do not possess objects, instead relying on the ability to switch between corporeal and ethereal forms almost instantly. All phantoms are capable of rendering themselves invisible, often using this trait to slip by humans unnoticed or to scare them to hell.{/slide}

{slide}Specters

Specters cannot maintain a corporeal form for no longer than a few hours and need to be bound to an object to survive. Once possessing an object, it becomes their home. However, a form of symbiotic relationship is established as the object possessed by the specter is greatly enhanced past its initial condition and will never decay. Specters are the most benign of the youkai, and often cooperate with humans who take care of their homes.{/slide}

{slide=center}Half-Youkai

The half-youkai are the result of humans and youkai interbreeding. A half-youkai is born with the abilities and some of the innate traits of their youkai parent, although they may be dormant for years.

{slide=center}Humans

Humanity. Need I say more?

Regarding the Supernatural Forces Survey

[accordion]
{slide=SFS Divisions}The SFS is divided into three major departments: Supernatural Research Division (SRD), Youkai Capture and Containments Forces (YCCF), and the Corps of Engineers (CE). There are also various other departments, such as Public Affiars (PA) and the Logistics Division (LD). Each of these is lead by a Director, while the SFS itself is overseen by a Chairman. They are as follows:

-Chairman (General) James Icarus (SFS/U.S. Air Force)
-Director Rondo (SRD)
-Director (General) Ichiro Kai (YCCF/Japanese Army)
-Director (General) Isaac Orson (CE/U.S. Army)
{/slide}

{slide=The Supernatural Research Division}Lead by Director Rondo, who is one of the five Aetherus, the Supernatural Research Division (SRD) is responsible for the research into the youkai's original realm as well as youkai themselves. With projects ranging from experiments with youkai as test subjects to attempting to pass through realms, the SRD takes on a large variety of tasks at once.{/slide}

{slide=Youkai Capture and Containment Forces} Led by Director Kai, the Youkai Capture and Containment Forces are responsible for tracking down and fending off youkai and half-youkai in populated areas as well as caretakers for youkai in captivity. Most half-youkai who were taken from there homes long ago serve in this unit, and all who are wholly or partly youkai who work for the unit have an assigned handler.{/slide}

{slide=Corps of Engineers} Lead by Director Orson, the Corps of Engineers (CE) are responsible for creating new inventions and innovations the SFS utilizes against youkai as well as to study them. But make no mistake: this engineering corps runs like any other and bears similar duties.{/slide}

{slide=Ranks}The ranks of the SFS are mostly borrowed from the United States Army, with "O" designating an officer-grade rank while "E" designates enlisted-grade rank. The ranks, in descending order, are:

-General (4-Stars), O-10
-Lieutenant General (3-Stars), O-9
-Major General (2-Stars), O-8
-Brigadier General (1-Star), O-7
-Colonel, O-6
-Lieutenant Colonel, O-5
-Major, O-4
-Captain, O-3
-First Lieutenant, O-2
-Second Lieutenant, O-1
-Command Sergeant Major, E-9b
-Sergeant Major, E-9a
-Master Sergeant, E-8
-Sergeant First Class, E-7
-Staff Sergeant, E-6
-Sergeant, E-5
-Corporal, E-4b
-Specialist, E-4a
-Private First Class, E-3
-Private, E-2
-Private Basic, E-1

Age: 19

Beo.png

Primary Behavioral Pattern: Neutral

Weapons: Longsword, hidden blades, aura spheres.

Abilities/Powers: Beo's abilities are based on the manipulation aura, and as such range from healing to destruction. The following abilities have been noted:

-Aura Blast: Beo concentrates his aura into strong projectiles, which are then channeled through his hands and shot towards a target.
-Aura Disruption: Beo uses his aura to scramble someone else's during a moment of direct contact, leaving the target disoriented and momentarily paralyzed.
-Aura Enhancement: Beo is capable of using his own aura to enhance the physical abilities of himself and of others, but is severely drained in the process.
-Aura Healing: Beo uses his aura to change the flow of someone else's to expedite the physical healing process.
-Aura Sense: Beo can sense the auras of others around him within a radius of ten meters and can distinguish on from another.
-Weapon Summoning: Like youkai, half-youkai can summon their own personal weapon. Beo's personal weapon takes the form of a longsword.

Biography: Beo was born in Okinawa Marine Base in Okinawa, Japan, to the Aetherus Hymn (although this is not known to him) and to then Staff Sergeant Phillip "Crankshaft" Tormod.

Special Notes: Beo has an affection for music and for engineering, and has combined the two for his DJ job at a dance club in Akihabara.

This seems interesting, though I do have a few questions.

Since the term youkai is involved, does that mean that traditional forms of youkai are acceptable characters?
That is, could a player make a youkai character based of a tengu, yuki-onna or similar kind of creature?

Are players allowed to play youkai?

Is there a specific age range you have in mind for characters?

Thanks for your interest! As per your questions:

-Given the term, a youkai that resembles the traditional definition(s) is completely acceptable as long as you can classify it into one of the non-Aetherus types.

-You are allowed to play a youkai character.

-Age depends on the species/type. Half-youkai are 19 at most, humans can be any feasible age, and youkai can be between hundreds and thousands of years old.

Cool beans!

Thanks for answering my questions so quickly!

I'll definitely join, but I've got some work to attend to before I make a character.

Name: Yuuto Minami

Codename: Byaako

Numerical Designation: 70534-D-SFS

Class: IX

Species/Youkai Type: Daemon, commonly referred to as a kitsune

Rank: Specialist

Age: 523 years, appears 26

Birthday: Spring, 1516

Gender: Male

Height: 156 centimeters

Weight: 56.70 kilograms

Eye Color: Gold

Hair Color: White, ears and tail are gold-tipped


Image & Further Physical Description:


Primary Behavioral Pattern: Emotional and Logical

Weapons: Other than teeth and claws? A hanbo.

Abilities/Powers: Able to shape-shift into the form of a small fox (30 cm at shoulder) or a very large one (160 cm at shoulder). Can create and manipulate fire. Fire ability can only be done in natural form and subject can only manipulate fire he has created.

Biography: Yuuto was raised quite normally for a kitsune. His first contact with humans came when he was first able to shift into a human form. He found that he had some pity for the creatures, despite how self-destructive they seemed to be. It was then that Yuuto decided he would become a guardian spirit to those humans who needed his help. He served in that capacity for 400 years, watching as the belief of humans in yokai began to dwindle. By the time the first world war had started, the kitsune had fallen into a state of dormancy in a dilapidated old shrine. He was found in 2021 by one of the first excursions of the Youkai Capture and Containment Force of the SFS. Instead of ruing his position, he chose to help the SFS. Within a few years he was admitted into the Supernatural Research Division. Yuuto was promoted to the rank of Specialist five years ago.

Special Notes: A teacher at heart, Yuuto can be difficult with some SFS members in an effort to teach them something of value.

Yay for the IC!

Does that mean that those of us who have submitted a character are accepted?

I figured they'd already know each other since Yuuto's been a part of the SFS for many years.
