Vi Veri Veniversum Vivus Vici
Thousands of years ago the Three Dark Lords, the supernatural beings who govern the world of monsters decided to put an end to the unorganized warfare and human involvement in feuds and combat between one another. However, in order to do so they went to a powerful race known as the drakon to seek a power as great as the Sun, and such was given to them. They gave them hundreds of small, crystal-like spheres about the size of baseballs they named "Legion Stones." Legion Stones, being sentient, immediately left after their instruction were given, going to choose those who deserved their powers. Those who Legion Stones bonded to became known as "Legionnaires." These Stone granted Legionnaires the ability to form a "Legion" and choose other monsters called "Soldiers" to follow them through a simple act known as the "Blood Oath." The Blood oath is performed when the Soldier takes a ceremonial dagger that Legionnaire possesses and cuts themselves with, letting the blood drop onto the Legionnaire's Sigil, a mark on their body that appears after being bonded with a Legion Stone. After this a copy of the Sigil will appear where the cut was, binding the Soldier to their Legionnaire until one of them dies. When the Legionnaire dies, however, all of his Soldiers are released from their Blood Oaths. After the Legionnaire dead, the Legion Stone that bonded to them leaves their body and seeks out a new person to make a Legionnaire. In the modern world monsters and ranked and are sent to what is called the Academy while they are typically 17-20 years old. The Academy itself is a collection of Branches, which are the individual schools. Each country typically has one Branch, though some countries have more. As dragons and drakons reawaken, our story soon begins...

About the Academy:
- The Academy
The Academy is the collective name for a group of schools that are organized in Western-style classes (freshmen, sophomore, junior, senior with students ranging typically from 17-20 years of age) and Japanese style school years and schedules where monsters are sent to learn their way of life and how to survive among human, as well as to begin being incorporated into Legions. Each school that is part of the Academy is called a Branch, with typically one Branch for every nation. This roleplay will take place in the Japan Branch. Branches can lobby to receive certain S or SS Class students, but otherwise English is used in every Branch in addition to the local language. Students live on-campus until they graduate and housing is separated by Legion, leading dorms to be coed, typically with one building per Legion depending on its size. Upon admittance, every student has their Soul Weapon unlocked. Once this is done each student can call their own Soul Weapon forth instinctively, though use of Soul Weapons is heavily monitored.
Each Branch has a Student Council, which consists of all of the Legionnaires and Representatives for students who are not members of a Legion. Legions attend the same classes, and as such are separated from students who are not Soldiers. These classes elect Representatives, with the Student Council officers being elected democratically. However, the trend is that the strongest Legionnaire at the beginning of the year is elected Student Council President.
- Legion Stones
No one is sure how Legion Stones came to be. Despite the near immortality of most monsters, Legion Stones choose only to those whose lifespans will come to a definite end, as when they die the Legion Stone will leave their body and await its next Legionnaire. There are a few cases of Legion Stones awaiting their master since they emerged, and these stones that await their Legionnaires still are called First Stones. Legion Stones themselves are separated into categories depending on what ability they grant their Legionnaire. They are classified as follows:
Each Stone grants the ability to perform the Blood Oath to the Legionnaire they've selected. Their names indicate a domain of magic that they grant to their Legionnaires. An example would be a Legionnaire who has obtained a Psychic Stone will have enhanced telepathic and telekinetic abilities.
- What You Need to Know
A Legion is any group commanded by a Legionnaire and comprised primarily of Soldiers. A Soldier can be any of the following ranks:
-Lieutenant: The highest rank of Soldiers that hold high authority in the Legion. There is usually one Lieutenant for every ten to fifteen Soldiers. Lieutenants can give orders in the absence of the Legionnaire.
-Immun: A senior-level Soldier with duties that include the training of Munfexes and the recruiting of others into the Legion.
-Discen: The standard rank for full Soldiers after their training as a Munfex is complete.
-Munfex: A probationary or new Soldier in the Legion.
While there are no specific limits on how many people make up a Legion, the Academy tends to regulate a Legion of their students at forty-five members maximum, with one Legionnaire, four Lieutenants, and a total forty Immunes, Discens, and Munfexes.
Soldiers join a Legion by performing a "Blood Oath" with their new Legionnaire. The Blood Oath is performed by making an incision on their body where they wish for their Legionnaire's Sigil to appear on their body, and they drop the blood onto the Legionnaire's Sigil, permanently binding them to their Legionnaire until either of them dies. There is also an enforced rule that all members of a Legion at a branch must be the same year.
Legions are ranked internationally, nationally, and within the Branch if they still attend the Academy through War Games and Bellicus. The War Games are hosted by the local Branches and the Legions are graded by how they perform in a series of events similar to a tournament. A Bellicus, however, is a formal war between two or more Legions that only ends when the enemy Legionnaire dies or surrenders. While attending a Branch any and all Bellicus are approved by the Headmaster and the Student Council, but killing the enemy Legionnaire is forbidden. On another note, Legionnaires who are within the top one hundred of all Legionnaires are called "Centurions." The top ten Centurions are further referred to as "Magnus"(this is both the singular and plural term). Lastly, the greatest of all the Magnus is called the "Grand Magnus." The Grand Magnus will typically act as the head of the supernatural world in a judiciary sense, but otherwise conflicts are resolved by the Legions, villages, tribes, etc who were involved.
Legions within the Japan Branch:
-The Grey Dragon Legion (Legionnaire Sirius Nocturne)
-The Cursed Banner Legion (Legionnaire Taruko Maikami)
