Leviathan Fugue

    It is the Age of the Serpents.

    On August 4th, 2019 there was an accident at the Hadron Collider facility in Switzerland. The experiment to study particles, by means of acceleration and bombardment, took a tragic turn when a seismic event interrupted the test cycle.

    An explosion occurred. Twelve technicians died. And satellites around the globe detected a spike in heat patterns.

    It were as if the world had shuddered...

    Fourteen years later, the Leviathan Mutation came.

    It began with medical cases in a dozen nations. Children were being diagnosed with a skin condition, first thought to be a form of hyper-eczema, in which their dermal layers died and flaked at an accelerated rate.

    Then more startling cases. Children capable of shedding whole segments of their skin. The comparison with snake physiology was undeniable.

    And finally, ten years ago... a child who could control the skin cells he had shed... and shape them into new forms.

    The mutation was named Leviathan.

    When the implications were realised, the Leviathan Children were exploited on every continent.

    In government facilities and military bases men endeavoured to harness their power, to make them grow and manipulate the pieces of themselves into ever-greater fabrications.

    But every creation perished. Every artifact imploded. The things the children made could not be sustained and lives were lost in the misery of those days.

    And into this darkness stepped the N.A.G.A. Project.


    Formed from the original taskforce that investigated the Collider explosion, the NAGA project had one core principle: give the children paradise. Providing lavish mansions, tropical getaways and corporate havens, NAGA allowed the most gifted of the Leviathan Children to pursue their skin-craft free from misery and distraction.

    The initiative flourished. Under the protection of NAGA, the Leviathan Children crafted ever more sophisticated extensions of their bodies and souls.


    14 years have passed. The children are on the cusp of adulthood. And they have been tasked with the most challenging fabrication they have ever attempted.

    They have been told to build Serpents - giants of flesh and metal which they can pilot.

    For what purpose... they will discover this very day.


    Welcome to Leviathan Fugue.​

  6. From below the dragon | dark comes forth,
    Nithhogg flying | from Nithafjoll;
    The bodies of men on | his wings he bears,
    The serpent bright: | but now must I sink.

    Asmo, don't let her personality fool you. You mentioned Evangelion, so I expect these kids will have issues.

  10. Okay, that's the intro.

    We'll use Grumpy's staff guy as the one who gathers us all up.

    So, make your own intros wherever you are in your fancy-schmancy homes, and finish with Hector arriving to put you in a plane/limousine/teleporter/boat/helicopter. You may or may not have met this guy before. But N.A.G.A. are the ones who have been funding your playboy lifestyle for the last decade and you have grown accustomed to their yearly visits.

    But this is the first time they've ever put you on a plane to Japan.

    (p.s. Hector will also be arranging to have your Serpents flown or shipped with you, so it will be clear from the outset that this visit is a big deal.)

    Grumpy, if you have any Dos or Don'ts about how we should be NPCing Hector, speak now or forever hold your snark.

  12. Hahaha, sounds awesome! >w< Annnd, once Denver Comic Con has passed I can work on Tsuna's designs... Until then, I'm stuck drawing fanart. >.< Oh Deadpool, how I love you! <33
  13. Okay, quick rundown on Hector for you crazy kids, then.

    He's been a holder of a Certified Badass Card for several decades, thanks to a career spanning the British special forces, independant contractor (ie. cheeky bit of mercenary work) operations and finally his work with NAGA. Up until the time he started encountering Leviathan Children Hector was of the opinion that he'd seen basically all there was to see, and that there wasn't anything he couldn't handle.

    Thus, though he'll never, ever admit it, the Leviathan Children freak him out just a tad.

    He's not great with teenagers, since he's a lifelong military man and tends to expect those he's in charge of to do exactly what he says right the fuck away.

    And yeah, he can curse in English, German, Spanish, Russian, Afrikaans, Japanese and French. He's also capable of holding a conversation in all of these languages, too. Amazing what you pick up on a long career in the special forces.
  14. Soooooo... will you cheeky chaps and chapettes be posting volunatarily, or shall I be getting the Post Acquisition Stick to hit you all with until you do?
  15. I've been busy and without non-mobile 'net. I tried to strike up a convo with Asmo about overhauling my character to be more dramatic! instead of the party-girl-running-from-issues type, but my phone doesn't like the new interface apparently.
  16. Is the IC up yet?
  17. Yus.

    *throws a shoe at Coffee*
  18. should I make my post next or wait for you
  19. Everyone post everything everywhere.
  20. Oh ho, the IC is actually up? Very well then
