  1. I have an old roleplay idea that I am thinking of bring back if anyone is interested.

    Here is the plot:

    This takes place in modern day Japan in the made up city of Shiroku. My character, Tanaka Yukina, is your average seventeen year old Japanese fourth year high school student. She is not the top of her class, though no where near the bottom, and doesn't participate in after school activities or clubs. She is known for being quiet, serious, and cold towards others that disrupts her concentration. Because of this, she doesn't have many friends. She never minded though. She lives with her uncle who owns and lives at a temple. Yukina tends the shrine in exchange of staying with her uncle. Being a miko (shrine priestess), she spends her days, when not in school, making charms, telling fortunes, and cleaning the area. She is happy with her little life and never wanted it to change. Well, like in any good story, of course things change. Winter is leaving now and finales and graduation are just around the round the corner. Also around the corner is Yukina's eighteenth birthday. A few weeks before her birthday, she starts to notice a strange man has following her around. At first she writes it off as a coincidence, but soon he starts appearing up more and more at places where Yukina visits. What Yukina doesn't know is that this strange man is actually something called a yōkai, a spirit from Japanese folk lore. You see, there is a legend about the rebirth a completely pure soul that as the ability to give ultimate power to the yōkai that holds claim to them. It's said when this person turns eighteen, their powers unleashes. Their blood can heal sick yōkai and a clan that has her married into them, will live and prosper for thousands of years. It is also said that any yōkai that eat their flesh can live forever. And what Yukina is about find out is that she is this pure soul and her life is about to get a little crazy. One night, a week before her birthday, as Yukina was closing down the temple shop, the man attacked her. She screamed for help and suddenly a young man steps in, claiming that Yukina was his bride and no one was going to touch her.

    Who is this man and what lies in the future for Tanaka Yukina?

    The character I am looking for:

    I am looking for someone the play the man that I mention at the very end (the one that saves her). This man is also a yōkai. He appears to be in his early twenties but is actually many years older. He is the current head of his clan (how he got that way is up to you) and wants to make Yukina his bride, for obvious reasons (and then some other secret intentions). There are many types of yōkai, as you can guess and I will leave up to you what kind of yōkai he is. I just ask you to make him a obake or shapeshifting yōkai. These are you Kistunes and Tengus that are commonly known in anime and manga. They are yōkai that look like they are human but are actually spirit animals, such as foxes and birds. When fighting, the obake can use the powers, as well as weapons, of the creature they are. (Ex: Tengu can grow wings because they are crows) I prefer the obakes Kitsune (foxes), Ōkami (wolves), Bakeneko (cats), Inugami (dogs), and Tengu (crows). Other than that I leave it up to you for personality and such. If you have any questions about the yōkai and such, don't not be afraid to ask. I am happy to help.

    The Relationship I am looking for:

    As in any romance roleplay, the relationship between the two main characters is key. In an ideal world, I want Yukina and the male yōkai to have met before in the past, when they were young and such. That way he can have more of a claim on her than any other yōkai. Yukina is usually cold towards people at first, so the male yōkai's claim over her is not going to well at first. But as Yukina learns that the male yōkai just wants to protect her, she will warm up to him. I kind of want the male yōkai to love her already and seriously wants to give her the best, but that is up to you. Before we start, I want to get this straighten out so I know how my character is going to change.

    Pm me if you have any questions!
