    Sign-ups are OPEN

    Illusions are torn.

    Mankind has fallen... After a mysterious virus wiped out every infected human over the age of thirteen, human civilization crumbled and succumbed to the might of the vampires - a powerful race who now imprison and use humans as nothing more than livestock. Despite losing 90% of the human population, the survivors have regrouped and organizations across the globe have begun to resist the combined threat of the vampires and demons that now populate the world. One of the most powerful organizations is the Japanese Imperial Demon Army, a militaristic organization that, under the powerful Hiragi family, seeks to cleanse the world of vampires and demons alike and to bring the world back under the thumb of human rule.

    Armed with the power of the Cursed Gears, possessed weapons cursed with the power of the demons, humanity now makes its counter attack...




    [​IMG]

    Welcome to the Moon Demon Company... As a member of the Imperial Japanese Demon Army's most elite vampire extermination unit, you will be tasked with the most dangerous of missions, the defeat and eradication of Vampires. Armed with the Black Demon Series Cursed Gears, powerful weapons of unknown strength, humanity has finally found its trump card. The Imperial Japanese Demon Army has fought valiantly, growing in strength with the passing days. However, the Vampires have taken notice and muster their forces to stamp out the threat. It has been said that the vampire is stronger than the human, but united... humanity may yet still prevail.

    Regardless of your past, why you choose to fight, remember that the soldier next to you is your comrade. Without them, you are nothing. With them, you are strong. Remember their sacrifices and they shall always remember yours...

    Welcome to your new family.

    Lieutenant Colonel Kazaki Sugihara (Valor)

    [​IMG]
    Lieutenant Colonel
    Kazaki Sugihara

    26 Years Old
    Commanding Officer of the Moon Demon Company
    Squad Leader of Sugihara Squad


    Personality:

    Kazaki Sugihara is the cold-hearted and calculating commander of the Moon Demon Company. A boastful and skilled warrior, Kazaki Sugihara is as mysterious as he is deadly. Quite possibly one of the most accomplished Vampire killers in the Imperial Japanese Demon Army, it is no surprise that he is the commanding officer in charge of the Imperial Army's most elite vampire extermination unit. Kazaki seeks the best out of each and every soldier under his command, leading them into the darkest corners of Japan and back. While he is a renowned warrior, his major strength comes from his tactical ability. Although often chastised by his superiors and peers as "reckless" or "too aggressive," The Moon Demon Company has accomplished much under his ingenious command with as few casualties as possible.

    It should be noted that while Kazaki seeks to keep casualties to a minimum, he has little regard for the value of human life. He firmly believes that it is humanity's destiny to die out, being convinced that humans are good for little more than warfare. Even before the world fell to the Vampires, humans knew little more than waging war and he is not convinced that a new mankind would absolve that. Kazaki detests war, but cannot deny the thrill he receives when clashing blades with the enemy.

    Biography:

    Unlike the majority of people that lost their friends and family before the outbreak wiped ninety percent of the human race, Kazaki had already lost everything. Kazaki once belonged to a prestigious family of politicians, often being brought to other countries to study abroad and follow his family on their obligations. One day, a terrorist attack caused the destruction of the United Nations Building he was staying in, leaving none of his family alive. He was then relocated to a orphanage back in his home country of Japan, where he was frequently abused by his guardians.

    As soon as he turned 18, Kazaki joined the Japanese Self Defense Forces Maritime Branch and served for three years. He was dishonorably discharged at the age of 20, two years before the virus wiped out humanity. Kazaki and the destroyer he was navigating was deployed off the coast of Japan to intercept an unregistered tanker coming from North Korea. Radio communications with the tanker revealed that it held over a thousand refugees escaping North Korea and into Japan. Rather than allowing it safe passage, Japan feared North Korean retaliation and did nothing as North Korean ships chased down and sunk the tanker, killing every man, woman and child aboard. The incident was never reported to the media.

    Kazaki deserted the Self-Defense Forces afterwards, living in a rural area of Iwate Prefecture, away from the cities and mankind. He lived off of the land and took up an interest in Iaijutsu, the art of drawing the sword. When the virus finally hit four years ago, many of the rural areas of Japan were unaffected. Leaving Kazaki alive. He had no idea that there was a war going on between the Vampires and Mankind as he lived in solitude for almost another year, until a battle ensued in the forest just by his house. He watched as Imperial Soldiers fought against the Vampires, mercilessly cut down in droves by the superior Vampires despite already having surrendered.

    Story says that Kazaki drew his sword and fell upon the Vampires that night. Despite having no Cursed Gear, he managed to fight the Vampires off with sheer will and skill alone, causing them to retreat. He was then sworn into the Japanese Imperial Demon Army and became one of the most noted warriors in their ranks soon after. His rapid rise in prominence was due to his legendary command capability and Kazaki's feats are not taken lightly by anyone in the Army.​

    Black Demon Series - "Hachiman 八幡神"

    Hachiman is the powerful demon that resides within Kazaki's Black Demon Series weapon. Much of its origin and special abilities are unknown, other than the fact that the weapon takes the shape of a standard Japanese Tachi. The blade harnesses the elemental power of demonfire, a powerful black flame that sears Vampires, preventing healing for prolonged periods of time.

    Combat Style - "Iaijutsu 居合術"

    Iaijutsu is an old sword art which focuses on the draw of the blade, leaving the blade sheathed before skillfully drawing and slashing in one, crisp movement. In swordsmanship terms, it eliminates the predictions of katas, typical sword holding forms which previously created a rock-paper-scissors style of sword fighting. By using Iaijutsu, the opponent cannot guess as easily where the blade will strike from, the velocity of the strike or even get a good sense of the length of the opponent's blade. It is an incredibly offensive style of combat, relying on cutting down the opponent faster than they can cut you down. In the even a Iaijutsu draw is too slow, it means death for the user.

    Hachiman has been modified to contain a small compartment in the sheath which houses a small, metal tube of gunpowder. Upon drawing, the black demonfire ignites the gunpowder, causing a backwards pull on the sheath and allowing the blade to be drawn at super human speeds.

    8th Progenitor Horace

    Noppera-bō
    "The Faceless Ghost"

    Horace is the 8th Progenitor of the Japanese Vampire Progenitor Council. Considered one of the strongest Vampires in Japan and one that has been both unaffiliated and uninterested in politics, Horace is often used by the Queen of Japan as an assassin, targeting powerful members of the Imperial Japanese Demon Army and swiftly changing the tides of battles. Known as the Noppera-bō (Faceless Ghost) by Imperial soldiers, no man has ever encountered Horace and survived until he encountered Kazaki Sugihara, who lost an eye and was left for dead by the powerful Vampire. Although he learned much about Horace's fighting style from military intelligence, Kazaki stood no chance and was cut down quickly. Kazaki refuses to speak of the event, though he was allowed to live because Horace thought that Kazaki was "Interesting."

    Kazaki describes the 8th Progenitor as a "Ghost of unparalleled speed."

    Japanese Imperial Demon Army Intelligence has Horace listed as "DNE" (Do Not Engage) and has adopted a policy of retreat whenever Horace has appeared.

  2. Veteran Guerrilla
    Name: Yamakawa Kenzo
    Gender: Male
    Age: 38
    Team: Team 2
    Rank: Major
    Appearance:

    [​IMG]

    Personality: Kenzo is a rather watchful man, observent, keen eyed, and seemingly fears nothing. A bit of a gambler, he is known to see war as chess, and not a personal affiar, speaking of, it is known Kenzo has a family, with a unknown number of Children, and is possibly a polygamist, though that remains a rumor. However his daughter Yazumi, is newly enlisted with the Army, and another child had been in the IJDA. A stalwart figure that has served the Army without question for the past couple of years.

    Regardless of any questionable private affairs, Kenzo is a rather straight forward officer with a disdain for politics, but when dealing with them his mantra is "Stand firm and Silent like a Mountain, as the waves and winds bash upon you.", not taking the bait or being seen as a threat by his higher ups. Known as reliable, and able, he has often been tasked with target neutralization, be it Vampires, or humans a number of times. Though the later cases he never speaks of. He'll often try his best to guide his supriors with advice and suggestions, and his underlings with a kind yet firm hand. Of note is the great coat he wears at all times and in all weather. Kenzo is a trustworthy if somewhat private man, of note he loves fighting in built up areas, or mountains, hating plains and lowlands, its one of the few times he can be heard complaining if made to fight in such. Has a wealth of knowladge in regards to mountain terrain, hand to hand fighting, which he tries to avoid, and in general regards to various woodsman activities.

    Biography: Kenzo is among some of the oldest survivors, hailing from, Kai, Yamanashi Prefecture. When the..event..happend Kai was a simple SDF Soldier, and Scout master who somehow survived the virus, and all other sorts of inanisty happening across Japan, maybe even the whole world, Kenzo took it upond himself to gather any survivors he could and who would listen, taking them into the Mountains of Kai. It seemed him being based alone on the Montain at a coldwar Era Radar station paid off..the rest of the units based in and around the City like most adults, ended up dead, with Kenzo alone. His First wife, seemed to have not survived the attack, though the children he had with her seemed to, with his at the time youngest daughter now entering the Army like her sister, the eldest son died during the Family campaign of resistance.

    From there Kenzo spent many years with what survivors he could find, taking them into hiding, and with the aid of a IED guide book, and his own attempts, began using explosives, to not just hide, but to fight back, earning from locals and Vampires alike, "The 2nd Coming of Takeda Shingen," and "Monkey King", mostly by the later, though often with spit hitting the ground afterwards.

    The region held its own well enough, while retreating in the face of threats it could now. This in time earned the notice of the Imperal Japanese Demon Army, who sought to control this asset. Expecting a fight they were more than a little surprised, when he personally approached the advanced recon group, bending his knee in submission. From that point onwards, he has loyally served the Imperial Army without much question. His ultimate goals and willingness to do this remains unknown.

    Combat Style: Guerrilla Warfare: Prefering to fight his stronger enemies at a distance, from cover, and with explosives, he aims to drain the Vampires in a battle of attrition, then to finish them off suddenly. Prefering Ambushes, he'll hardly ever conduct a fight from clearly in the open, believing that to be a fools notion.

    He himself uses a mixture of ranged warfare, and Improvised Explosives, or his weapons trademark ability. In general his focus is to keep moving, put his enemies in a position of disadvantage, then to put them down quick and clean. Of course this doesn't mesh as well in his older years as in his youth, so he tends to count on his gun more, with a few explosive surprises.

    Cursed Gear Name: Tengu Sanzen Sekai

    A WW1-2 Issue Handgun that was "blessed" with a Demon of Fire, that wears a Tengu mask on his face, and a males Kimono, with a ancient handcannon, and a gun powder Gord on his belt, makes the bold Claim of being one of the Advisors of Oda Nobunaga. Or principlly one that brought him the technology of gunpowder.

    The Weapons default abilit is as implied in its name or history, while the demon in this blade is either a liar, very confussed, a history nut, or telling the truth, he uses the infamous three line volley invented by Oda Nobunaga, in that each shot he fires seemingly can be limitedly guided and can split into three, going in three directions, of course the number of targets it can fire on, and the range is limited by what his owner can see. Being a Cursed weapon of the Black Demon Series, even blindly firing into an area will inflict far more damage than any normal handgun.

    The shots themselves seem to be made of a form of red fire that looks like origami cranes in a manner. They tend to explode on impact with a target, dealing explosive and fire damage, which can overwhelm a Vampires natural ability to recover from wounds. The gun while it doesn't use normal ammo, must be "reloaded" every ten shots. The weapon is deadly accurate in this form with a respectable rate of fire, and is dependable cover,

    Weapon Appearance: A Mauser c96 Handgun with ornate design

    Awakened Ability: True Three Line Volley

    Five Additional Handguns appear, one in his left hand, and four in formation around his body seemingly floating. The various patings of guns can aim at one target, or direction, or at varrying targets. This form also seems to not need to be reloaded, but requires shooting from a fixed position, and has higher firepower, of course the price to pay in this is lower accuracy and its ill suited to use among comrades.

  3. Let me know if anything is wrong.

    Regretful Veteran

    Name: Tallise Kikazumi
    Gender: Female
    Age: 21
    Team: Team 2
    Rank: Captain
    Appearance:



    Kikazumi, as she appeared when she was an officer in the Kaneda Rangers. She now wears the standard Imperial Japanese Demon Army uniform, with the cape - though she prefers to wield her weapons with her bare hands instead of wearing gloves like some others do.


    Personality: The loss of her home at Kaneda affects her deeply. A sense of hopelessness pervades around her, as she internally questions the value of fighting anymore now that she has practically lost everything of value to her back at home. In combat, she is no stranger to working in a squad and engaging vampires, having been in command of a squad herself before. However, the equipment and training of the Japanese Imperial Demon Army is a departure from what she is used. Her only possessions is what gear the military has assigned to her, and thus she is often seen maintaining and keeping them in immaculate condition during downtime.

    She is not particularly fond of traveling very far around on foot. On some of the marches she feels like she could've traveled the whole of Okinawa several times over - so she is usually quick to jump to any possibility of getting a ride somewhere. Kikazumi is also not above taking 'war spoils' or scavenging for valuables in the ruins to use or sell later. She is sometimes teased for this little hobby of hers, but it's surprising what things her eyes are able to pick up on when traversing the ruins. Currently, she's hoping to come across a single working or get enough parts to restore to working order, a compact pre-epedemic handgun to compliment her load-out that the IJDA has ammunition available for.


    Biography: A veteran who fought against the vampires in the desperate age before the Arrival of 'Cursed Gear.'

    Kikazumi resided in Okinawa when the outbreak that wiped out much of humanity occurred. She, and many others in Okinawa sought out refuge at the military airbase located on the island. It was there that they hoped to ride out the epidemic until it came to pass, and help could arrive. However, as we now know - civilization as we knew it was completely eradicated. Leaving the survivors to fend for themselves, or fall into protective servitude of the vampires that now had the upper hand. The settlement of 'Kaneda', with it's arsenal of weapons in control of the humans of the island, ensured that the population would be protected from the vampires terrorizing and enslaving survivors in other parts of the world.

    However, years later, priorities changed as the vampires began a campaign to seize the airbase and it's resources. In response to this, the 'Kaneda Rangers' were formed in order protect the safety of the settlement. What followed was several years of bitter fighting between the Rangers and the Vampires besieging the island. It was here that Kikazumi gained notoriety for her combat capabilities against the opposing vampires. What normally took 3 or so swordsman to hold a vampire down for a sniper was something she could handle on her own. For her capacities, she was promoted to be a squad captain at the height of the rangers' power. However, months later the vampires launched a dedicated assault on the base - calling in reinforcements from other regions of the world. Kikazumi had intended to lay her life down and die protecting her home - however she ultimately ended up being evacuated off of the island in the wake of the attacks. Many others where not as lucky.

    Without a home, the survivors of 'Crisis Kaneda' were left to find a place in mainland Japan to resettle. In Kikazumi's case, she was able to come into the territory of the Imperial Japanese Demon Army. Knowing nothing else but a life of battle, she joined the army. Given her service record - she was quickly singled out from the recruits and found herself set to be 'rushed to service' so to speak. With a cursed gear that further enhances her abilities in tow, Kikazumi is a formidable soldier in her own right. Though keeping the demon possessing her Gear at bay is a bit more difficult for her than others.




    Combat Style: Solid Stance Swordsmanship
    A Combat style that stresses the user maintaining stability and balance on the attack and in defense. This particular flavor was based upon the strategy of going head to head against vampires in the field. Without cursed gears, most normal humans would be easily overpowered - thus this tactical doctrine focused on stalling or pinning down the enemy's attack to allow for a ranger eliminate an vampire's cranium. In battle, this translates to a user who has an excellent defensive game in close combat, and can swiftly punish an opening when an opportunity presents itself. They work particularly well with ranged partners.

    This sort of combat style was developed with the primary enemy of other Vampire Combatants in mind. Without the additional power provided by the cursed gear she would be very vulnerable to regular monsters such as The Four Horsemen of John.


    Cursed Gear Name: Ou-Mizuchi
    A Water Element Katana housing a water demon. It's signature attack is a powerful thrust that momentarily materializes a flying dragon, sending it charging headlong with the force of a raging river into an opponent before soaring skyward. Effective against opponents at close range.


    Awakened Ability: Twist of the Water Dragon
    Allows the user perform sword swings with trajectories that would normally be impossible to perform. Such as the sword being swing to the side and then right up at a 90 degree angle in mid-flight. Helps the user land a clean strike on an opponent with a strong defense at close range. Can only be used once per swing. Can be invoked again at the next swing.

  10. Frozen Blade Dancer
    Name: Yamakawa Yazumi
    Gender: Female
    Age: 16
    Team: Team 1
    Rank: Sergeant
    Appearance:
    [​IMG]

    Personality: Overall her personality is much more volatile, than her fathers. Shes not as far planning as he is, far more prideful, and is aware of her good looks. One could say she has a fun, trolling personality, with a "I'll take what I want" mindset. Her empty eyes are a sign of the terrors and trials she has seen and endured over the last few years. Fairly mischievous the one area some learn she will never mess with them in, is food, in fact she is a fairly good cook, and enjoys watching others eating and enjoying her cooking.

    Other than that, she takes rather good care of her blade, polishing it, leaving it food offerings, and speaking to it at times. When asked about it or hit on by other males, she'll often invite the lucky ones to see the display, of how one should treat a real lady. Then normally dismisses them. Curiously she wears the same old Imperial Army Uniform that her father wears, minus with white gloves, and a hoodless great coat. When asked about this, she says much as he did "Brown Blends in better than Black." Like her father she prefers sudden ambushes over open challenges, but is much more confrontational, and fearless in hand to hand combat than he. Rumor has it she knows all the facts of the family, and kept order alongside her father, becoming the head of the house blood-line after the deaths of her two older siblings.

    Normally she will not speak of this, family affairs, or her dead mother, unless she really trusts a person, and trust with her cynical trolling nature is hard to earn. She does have redeemable qualities, and can inspite of her age, be seen as a older sister, or even a mother, with small acts of concern or kindness for her comrades.

    Biography: Yazumi was the Youngest Child of the time, her father a soldier in the JSDF, she and her mother, sister, and brother were living in Kai city at the time of the "event" as some would call it, or the end of the world. Alone and scared, she seen many things..many..unnatural things..When she and her two older siblings were aboutto be taken, it was by luck her father had survived, coming down from the hilltop like an angry ogre, His assault rifle didn't seem to be of much use against the white robbed attackers, but when he leaped from the jeep, she knew to hit the ground with her two siblings, as a white flash bloomed, and she was wisked away in his arms, with the two other siblings running on there own, that to her was the standard that would be set for any other man in her life. Though for a girl that young, it would be some time off.

    As the brief years went by much happend, from her fathers heroic actions, or cowardly depending on point of view, to the changes in family..she adapted to these better than her older siblings, along the way her two older siblings would die in battle, one on the mountain, one for the Army, fueling her with a sense of purpose and revenge. For her a momment of lasting shame or even hatred was seeing her father kneel before the Imperial Japanese Demon Army, submitting to their rule..and more importantly her being thrown into this so called school. Though her prartical combat knowladge led to her compleating the courses rather early, and gaining a demon sword in near record time, though of course not fast as a few students of note. For now she rests away from the frontlines, awaiting assignment as leader of a squad.

    Given past combat knowladge, and her past, she was promoted to the posting, in the hopes one Veteran can make a difference in a squad of recruits, increasing survivability.



    Combat Style: Yagyū Shinkage-ryū

    The Shinkage school of sword fighting put an empathizes on studying ones opponent, location and time of day, as well as weaponry, in order to gain an accurate counter, or rather attack. Rather than other Katana styles this one in many ways uses the blade in various unorthodox ways and is more keen to a rapier. One of the schools key tenets was "Move with the mind, in order to move with the body." To strike down upon the enemy like a hawk, at the right place, and the right time.

    The style has changed extensively from its early days, inter-mingling with its of off shoot of Katsujin which teaches a student to match the speed of an enemy. In the modern era,it more or less means, Yazumi is a deadly fencer. Aiming to get in close, match speed, taunt and humiliate her enemies to score the deciding blow. If not for the combination of the defensive dueling style, this could prove fatal, while normal vampires would not be much of a match, it remains to be seen how she would fair against those in higher standing.

    Cursed Gear Name: Black Devil Series - Yukikaze, A traditional Katana, crafted and forged by the Imperial Demon Army, at its core remains a prideful demon, a Yuki-onna, that calls herself Yuki-hime, and is livid with the more male sounding name of her blade. She previously was a noble Vampire, but her knowladge of this remains questionable, she is a demon of pride and conceit. Clothed in a beutiful white Kimo on a snowy mountain, with pale and fair skin, and white hair, she is harsh and unforgiving.

    The blade its self, primary power wise, is centered around the power of Ice, coating the blade in it, the blade is extremly sharp and able to freeze cuts, while this stops bleeding, it also stops reformation in the case of vampires, the effects of this weapon seems to spread a bit further than its blade, leaving its as of yet unknown awakened ability in question.

    Calls the sword, Hime.

    Awakened Ability: TBD

  11. Wait, question. Would the rookie team already have their Cursed Gears or would they have yet to acquire them? Also, should I fill out the awakened ability even though team 1 won't have them for a while or wait?

  12. My other was finish but is mostly a WIP again now in terms of the ability and weapon, noticed you had to name the weapon and its effects should be done soon.

    Awakend abilities are ment to be your "ultimate attack"? Or is it like the more "advance" version of basic attacks seen in the anime?

  13. The Mongrel Swordsman
    Name: Yoshio Shizuka
    Gender: Male
    Age: 17
    Team: 1
    Rank: Private First Class
    Appearance:
    [​IMG]


    Personality: Yoshio is a very… unique individual, to say the least. I guess to sum him up, the words “blatant”, “stoic” and “cocky” would do relatively well. Accompanying them would likely be the phrases “Itching for a fight” and “Gives-no-fucks”.

    The first thing people will see when they meet Yoshio is that he appears very stoic and mature, almost monotone and lazy at times, often speaking or replying in a sarcastic manner. As you can probably guess, he doesn’t beat around the bush either. If he has an opinion, you will definitely be aware of it and it doesn’t matter if you’re an equal, below or considered “above” him. This especially makes him a pain in the ass when suspicious or questionable orders are laid out. Yoshio is aware of this and will even admit it or state it upfront were you to ask his opinion on a plan of action. He can be obedient, but he reasons that if someone wants him to listen to them without question, they need to give him a reason to fully trust them; unconditionally.

    His slight arrogance and seemingly constant urge to throw down doesn’t help people seem him as… well, less aggravating. While he runs his mouth a lot, Yoshio can and does back it up. If someone provokes him, he won’t back away. Even if the person in question is someone of significantly higher power or skill, Yoshio would still fight right till the point where he loses consciousness. Despite what many assume the reason to be for having such a die-hard attitude towards conflict, it isn’t because he’s stubborn… though he is somewhat stubborn too. The reason is because, the way he sees it, you don’t get stronger through training or fighting someone you know will be an easy win. Like constantly bumping up the weight you lift, you must keep finding someone stronger in order for you, yourself to grow.

    However Yoshio, aside from being a giant smartass… or just an ass, is in some ways what you might address as a hero”, or at least someone with a hero-complex. This is extremely ironic given his name meaning the exact same thing, yet Yoshio himself seems to genuinely become aggravated when someone taunts him with such a title and will dismiss it until the bitter end. In truth though, he does his name justice. He will go out of his way to help people; a lot. He’ll risk his life if he needs to. The boy despises this aspect of himself, yet can’t seem to be able to turn his back on people when they need help. At the least this means you can rely on him when you need to, much of the ass he is.

    Biography: Eldest twin heir to the formerly powerful Shizuka Arms Manufacturing, a company that produced items of self-explanatory nature and dealt them out as well. Yoshio and his sister were, fortunately or unfortunately depending how you saw it, were the sole survivors of the “event”, at least only the ones on grounds. It was ironic, really. A weapons manufacturing company guarded by its own personal PMC big enough and skilled enough to be considered its own small army, yet all of them as well as Yoshio’s parents; they all just dropped when it happened, leaving Yoshio and his younger twin sister to fend for themselves.

    The two siblings spent much of their earlier childhood outside of cities or designated “safe zones”. They lived a nomadic life in the neutral territories. Well, for as neutral as wandering Four Horsemen of Johns were. Regardless, the two survived albeit with some close calls. Yuuka acted more as the brains and Yoshio the muscle, per say, not that they engaged in any real combat with the monstrosities. At most, it was Yoshio drawing their aggro temporarily before escaping. Of course, Yoshio being the cocky little shit he was, and still is, often talked crap about the titans and the vampires as well that he had heard so much about from other survivors and the like. The poor boy had yet to see one in person, however--And he most certainly would. It was only one and one that was rather low on the food chain, but what were a couple of kids to do against a real vampire? Aside from some cheap metal excuse for a sword Yoshio had slapped together to act as some kind of weapon, that is. Like that would’ve done anything.

    The two would not have survived that encounter, or at least they would not have retained their freedom, less it was for one heroic soldier that came to their rescue.

    After defeating the bloodsucker, a feat the twins thought not possibly after the vampire’s reaction to Yoshio’s “blade”, the woman identified herself as a member of the Moon Demon Company--or ex-member, rather. She never did explain to them her story or why she left, but, either because she felt sorry for them, acquired some kind of connection or simply based on a whim, she began to drag them around with her; more or less acting as their guardian.

    Yuuka was always a bit hesitant towards the woman, though Yoshio, on the other hand, was ecstatic to have her around. She did, after all, suddenly appear and completely mop the floor with something that Yoshio himself couldn’t touch. She was a badass to him. He idolized her. Even nagged her to teach him some of what she knew, which she did. Unfortunately, this time didn’t last too long, only a year or two, give or take.

    A few months prior to the current day, their apparent guardian disappeared. Claiming to Yoshio that she had to go see some old comrades, she left in the middle of the night and never returned. The twins waited, and waited; for days, then a couple weeks--then a month. Begrudgingly, Yoshio was convinced that they needed to move forward, however the boy proposed something rather surprising to his sister; the Moon Demon Company.

    Justifying that they couldn’t keep on by themselves, an example being the run in with said vampire that introduced them to their benefactor, he proposed they head to one of these supposed “safe zones” or cities and settle down there. Well, Yuuka would settle down. Yoshio would enlist only a few days after they arrived.

    He doesn’t know whether he simply is using the company as a stepping stone to get stronger, a means of remaining close with his idol, or as a way of finding her--somehow. Yoshio didn’t knew. He couldn’t make sense of most of the things he felt, or rather, justify them. If he needed to do something, he did it--And this was definitely something that he just needed to do.

    Fortunately, or unfortunately, Yoshio found who he was looking for relatively quickly; in his blade. Now, he more is in search of answers--as to why exactly the woman who saved and nurtured him and his sister the last couple years before disappearing is now within his sword and addressed as a demon.

    Combat Style: “Mongrel Style”
    This is a combat style that people, particularly the people that Yoshio has gotten on the nerves of, have dubbed Yoshio’s style as. More or less, it just means that it… really isn’t proffessional. It isn’t from some esteemed Japanese samurai family. It isn’t a modern style formerly taught in a dojo. It’s a mix of--what could possibly be a professional style and Yoshio’s own personal take on it. You could describe it as a style instructors might teach in the training camps, but a lot more sporadic, wild and with much more brute force added in. It fits with one of Yoshio’s trademark threats: “I’ll cleave you right in half.” He fights with the tenacity and brute force as if he is truly trying to simply break through whatever his opponent is using in defense, and cut them all the way through.


    Many people, the instructors especially, often berate Yoshio’s style, however he defends it by stating that it is his very own, and he’ll do better standing by it than by trying to be some “poser” copying a dead man’s way of waving a sword around. He as well claims it isn’t as predictable as a “professional” style or stance.

    Cursed Gear Name: Rin Chi
    Weapon Appearance: The form of the weapon takes on the form of what looks to be a large, uniquely shaped cleaver with a chain attached to the bottom of the hilt; almost as large as Yoshio himself. A brutal weapon that fits his attitude and style rather perfectly.
    Now, were the demon within the blade anything--or anyone else, Yoshio might actually like it.

    The demon within the blade being a tall adult woman with long, disheveled red hair, piercing red eyes to match and teeth that more resemble a shark's than a human's or vampire's. Her clothing consists of a black scarf wrapped around her neck and what somewhat resembles a military uniform. The coat, however, has had its colors faded and the standard green trim replaced with a dark red. It as well only seems held together by one button, causing the collar to loosely hang passed her shoulders, exposing some of her midriff and above-average bust supported and covered by wrappings rather than a bra of some kind. The skirt, as well faded in color and with the green replaced with red. The boots, while scuffed and dirtied, appear to be the only thing fitting with the proper dress code.

  14. Rookie team will already have their Cursed Gears. You can choose if you want to fill out the awakened ability or leave it blank for now, doesn't matter.

    More like the special attacks that each character relies on in the anime/manga. For Yuichiro, it would be the Asura-Kannon or the Devil's Coffin for Shiho Kimizuki. If you don't want one, that's fine too.
     
  15. Alright then, I'll leave it blank for now. Allow myself to brainstorm until it comes time to choose.
     
  16. Alright. It's still final's week for me so I might need a few days before we get started on the actual RP. Until then, people need to finish their character sheets.
     
  17. Welp both of mine are now finished I think.
     
  18. That's fine, I can just rage at the anime until we're ready to get things started.
     
  19. I'm thinking we could roll with just one team with the amount of characters we have so far. It'd be a 6 man team but since there's a few people from the interest check who haven't popped in yet, I think it's safe to say this is all we're going to get for the time being.
     
  20. Maybe send a message to those that said they were interested? Just to let'em know that the OOC is up. Could've just not bookmarked or watched the thread; ended up getting caught up in other rps and forgetting about it for the moment.
