Role Play Status: Always Accepting~! THE FOLLOWING ROLE PLAY WILL BE RATED M FOR POTENTIALLY HARMFUL SCENES, BLOODSHED, GORE, SEXUAL REFERENCES, AND DEATH. Please do not consider joining if you cannot take such references. In the world of the distant future, ruins and skeletons decorated the streets. It was the year of 2300, and the ancient land of Choga was living in awesome prosperity. Youkai, vampires and other humans lived in harmony. Many of them celebrated many secular events that were used to be banned in the Feudal period. Mikos (Shrine maidens) cherished the youkai everywhere. New, evolved species came about the land, and everyone was promised a happy life betwixt each other. One species in particular, the Shinigami (Death Gods), worked to preserve the dead. Many of the national Shinigami were proclaimed "Guardians of Death" and had since carried on this role. The otherworldly Shinigami were known as "The Gods of Death." The Gods worked together to place the dead in their designated places. The Shinigami are NOT immortal, but they do, however, have an extension to life. They can die by getting cut up or getting sick. The Yama, the Judge of the Court, declared a destination in the afterlife for the convicted spirits. The Yamas gave orders to their Shinigami, and told them what to do. Yamas were to watch the pairs and ensure that Shinigami did their jobs. The Yama and the Gods always have their final say of fates. The Yama in Japan is called "Enma" such as "Judge Fern"="Enma Fern". Shikigami, on the other hand, are very different. Still, many human monks feared them for being "evil messengers". They were to serve their masters just like the many human and pure-blood wizards of Choga. Some Shikigami are able to make their own Shikigami from papers and other crazy things. Many Shikigami work as monks who pray to the Gods of Choga. Others prefer to cause trouble with their army of demons around their sides. Everlasting dreams and fates should have brought some happiness and sadness to the land. An abundance of love was brought to the land by a youkai named Faucette. The youkai first made her presence as a maiden in 2018. The youkai children loved to play with the maiden as she herded her own farms as she sang beautifully. She brought wisdom and peace to Choga, providing them Earthly gifts to everyone she met. She kept the children in company, and began treating humans with respect. By 2093, humans began taking advantage of the beautiful maiden. They treated her like she could give them anything. The kind humans began to get their own things and only wanted advice once in a while. After three years, she finally rejected their offers peacefully. Faucette then began to beat herself up with abundant sleep, abundant drinking, and cursing herself with illnesses. Her negativity continued for a year until a human came to visit with obvious worry. The youkai appeared close to her death as the human arrived to her home. He apologized for what the residents of Choga did, and asked for something to do. The human began giving Faucette medicines and herbs to get better. By 2100, it was time for Faucette to be sealed. Faucette's anger in being sealed was vented passively as she continued to give and receive. As the anger welled in her, she exhibited unthinkable behavior. She began to scare little children away from her home, and would burn down the homes of other youkai. Angry at what the humans planned, Faucette stopped helping all humans and youkai. With that, she didn't do anything, and was the first humanoid youkai to die of a natural cause. As one Shinigami named Skrell went to take the girl to the Victim's Court to be sent to Hell, he was suddenly stopped by an evil demon, who viciously mutilated the dead youkai by violently slashing her up. Her blood was like the river valley that was left untouched by the hands of other Shinigami. Angered by this, Skrell began to rue the demons someday. He told the Yama, which was Enma Draco. Draco Tretyakov, the current Yama of Choga, noticed something wrong. The youkai was too bloodied up, but he saw nothing wrong in her heart to be in that condition. Draco knew she was a good lady to be suffering in such places. As a result, he then took sincere revenge on the demons by threatening them death. Hearing of the ideas, the demons began to cut up the bodies of other innocents. The demons then began to possess the innocent bodies forcing them to do their bidding. Some shikigami that thought bad of human/youkai unity sided with the demons to destroy the human race. By January 13, 2256, Skrell passed away and gave his trusty scythe to his long-lasting daughter, Chiyori. Chiyori then began to row the convicted at the Styx of Dread to the Victim's Court. Chiyori has since watched the land of Choga turn from a happy and peaceful land to a miniature Apocalypse. After 54 years of guarding and guiding, Chiyori suddenly dies of an unknown cause. Now it is up to Choga's shinigami, Shikigami, and other magical beings to banish the demons from their land.
