Wrath of the Shadow

  1. WRATH OF THE SHADOW



    So I've been meaning to do something with Ninjas in it for a while and I think it's about that time, for me at least. So I have here, a new thread that is COMPLETELY OPEN. I stress the openness of this thread because I couldn't quite figure out a plot line that I felt would actually suck people in to join, so I'm doing it like this:

    The Plot:The general back story for this thread follows a modern day Ninja on his own quest of revenge (typical stuff I know). Basically the Yakuza, Triads, and even the Italian Mafia (yes that's right, I'm bringing the 'Goodfellas' into this) all have a common enemy; Takeo (Tah.Kay.Oh), a shinobi of a Koga Ninja clan who was wiped out by Yakuza. Over the course of five years Takeo tracked down members of the Yakuza and began killing them off. Each hit landed him new leads on other Yakuza families throughout the world and has currently led him to the Miami, FL in the United States, where he found that although partially at war with each other, each of these major organized crime syndicates are involved in something bigger and Takeo has made it his mission to try and get to the bottom of it and stop it. Other Ninja clans may be involved, as well as local gangs throughout the U.S. There's a lot of enemies to sort out...

    The Rating: R [for violence and strong language]

    So.......all that being said here's how I figure this can go. I'm going to just start posting an IC, and anyone who wants to join can start here, describing their character then posting in the IC. You can be ANYONE you want. Mafia boss, Yakuza, Triad, Local gang lord, Ninja from another clan, just some kid down the street, blah blah blah I don't care. Your characters are around for 2 obvious reasons; to help, or hinder Takeo's mission. So let's see how this goes.

    Here's the Generic Character Sheet you can use for you characters:

    Name:
    Age:
    Gender:
    Description:
    Affiliation: [Yakuza, Mafia, Triads, Ninja Clan (state the name of the clan), Local Gang (Bloods, Latin Kings blah blah blah, make one up if you want that's fine), Police, YMCA, the list goes on]
    Weapon(s): [if any]
    Personality:
    Back Story: [Just a little bit about who your character is and what brings them to their current possition in their Affiliation]
     
  2. Name: Takeo <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
    Age: 28<o:p></o:p>
    Gender: Male<o:p></o:p>
    Description:Takeo is full Japanese. He stands at 5'7", lean and muscular with medium length black hair and small but intense black eyes. He has a scar on his neck that runs diagonally from his Adam's apple to just under his left ear, three bullet scars on his back near the right shoulder blade and large scar over his abdomen. He wears a traditional Ninja Uniform, dark gray in color. He also wears regular clothing when not "hunting".<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Affiliation:Sole survivor of a small branch of Koga Ninja<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Weapon(s):Traditional Ninja Sword and Kyoketsu Shoge (Chain and Curved Dagger replace the rope and straight dagger in picture.Also there's no metal ring at the other end, just a studded weight)<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Personality: Takeo is a man on a mission of death. His eyes are cold and his voice is colder. Although raised deep in Japan he has learned English rather quickly and has already become used to American lifestyle, and managed to develop a cool yet serious demeanor.<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Back Story:Koga Ninja were one of the deadliest of the clans, and one of the largest, having several different villages throughout the Japanese Islands. Takeo was born and raised in one of the Koga branches and excelled quickly to the rank of Shinobi and became one of the first to truly master the Koga Chained-Blade, Kyoketsu Shoge. Takeo's master had a mysterious past connection with the Yakuza and eventually it came back to haunt him and the Koga Clan. The Yakuza bombarded the village with masses of gunfire and RPG's. Those that survived were soon attacked by an unknown Ninja clan affiliated with the Yakuza. Takeo fought valiantly enough to escape but passed out due to his injuries. A hermit named Hirotoro found Takeo and nursed him back to proper health and taught Takeo a secret and ancient art known as 'The Shadow Hand'. Healed and with a new and powerful technique, Takeo sought out any and all Yakuza that he could find, slaying them one by one. Eventually all the killings led him to the United States where he spent two years learning about America, and the whereabouts of the Yakuza. After a few hits in L.A and N.Y he discovered that the Yakuza were trading with the Chinese Triads and the Mafia, using local gangs and even Ninja to transport their "packages". Takeo then set his mind to find out what it is they're trading, and to put a stop to it and them.<o:p></o:p>

Gabriel’s affairs include bookmaking, some small time drug trafficking, and he’s working on muscling his way into the behind the scenes world of car sales. Gabriel’s one true passion and main focal point of his mob lifestyle is his smuggling. Gabriel himself owns three boats and countless others sail day in and day out under his instruction, lifting everything from stolen cars to dangerous animals from one country to another.

    <u1:p></u1:p>Weapon(s): Today in America it’s almost too dangerous to walk the streets with a deadly weapon. That being the case Gabriel, like many of his organized crime compatriots, favors a more subtle approach in the practice and appreciation of improvised weaponry. In today's over stuffed society there is never a time when a weapon is any farther than arms length. Out of typical inklings of paranoia that come with a high ranking Mafioso title, Gabriel keeps a glock 22 that is as hot as the noon day sun in the center console of his audi s5. Back in the day he used to own a single rusted garrote wire than his family used to call Gallo’s Gallows. More than he’d like to admit Gabriel took a “bad investment” up to the roof of a parking garage and hung them from his gallows. The brutality of his murderous past caught up with him not to far after his 21<sup>st</sup> birthday and he decidedly ditched his ol` faithful.

    <u1:p></u1:p>Personality: He’s a simple man with a complex mind who often times feels uncomfortable in his own clothes. He has led a life that has taken a lot away from him and he’s grown more or less accustomed to the idea. This shines through on the outside with his raw attitude and overwhelming self confidence. He lives every moment as free of expectation as possible. He’s a bit confrontational when he meets face to face with disappointment and his number one vice is, and probably always will be lust. The man knows a thing or two about infidelity and has never held a steady girl friend, no matter how hard he’d like to settle down like so many of his friends and brothers.

    <u1:p></u1:p>Back Story: Gabriel was a late bloomer in more regards. He was made when he was 24 years old and his family has been nothing but supportive of every move he’s made. Corruption was instilled in Gabriel from an early age and is second nature to him. He has two brothers, Eli and Michael. They manage “family life” in other areas of the US while Gabe sits at home in Miami. His mother died of lung cancer when he was 27 and his father was murdered when he was 18. A second generation Italian Gabriel considers himself an American more than anything else, though his mother would throw a fit if she’d ever find that out. He’s a brooding skittish bastard with a hard on for the exotic. We’ll probably learn more about him during this RP.<o:p></o:p>[/FONT]
     
  4. Love it man! Great detail on your character, this will be good. I'll start up the IC soon
     
  5. Takeo knocking off all those bosses has to be noticed by SOMEONE in the FBI, y'know.

    Who knows, he may just come in handy as a friend.

    Name:
    Special Agent Nicholas Macintyre
    Age: 36
    Gender: Male
    Description:
    [​IMG]
    Nick has a series of shrapnel scars on his left arm from where a grenade exploded near where he was standing at the first crash site during the Battle of Mogadishu.
    Affiliation: FBI
    Weapon(s):
    Duty Pistol: Sig P-226
    Personal Carry: Springfield Armory XD .45

    Qualified for: M-4A1 Carbine, MP-5SD, Mossberg M-500
    Personality: Considered a bulldog by his coworkers in the Bureau, Macintyre is extremely tenacious when he has a lead. He has a strong sense of duty and honor, a trait instilled into him when he was Army Rangers back in the 90's.
    Back Story: A veteran of the 75TH Ranger Regiment, Nick's most memorable tour of duty occured in 1993 where he was given a baptism by fire on October 3 in Mogadishu, Somalia. He finished his enlistment in time to avoid being shipped to Bosnia-Herzegovina. Nick was accepted into the Federal Bureau of Investigation after two years working at a security firm and long hours of studying for the exam. His present investigation into the influences of overseas criminal organizations on American criminal groups has hit a snag with the recent murders or teir one personalities, some of which were his own informants. Nick is dead set on finding out who has been knocking off his marks, with or without the Bureau.


    Any questions?
     
  6. another wonderful character, I 'preciate you joining up. I was really hoping for someone who would know their way around an "Authority Figure" type role for this and that's insanely close to how i pictured that character to be, save for looking like Ryan Reynolds lol
     
  7. Any time.

    I just hope more people join in.
     
  8. You and me both
     
  9. Name: Raiko Hakashi

    Age: 29
    Gender: Pumpkin
    Description: [​IMG]
    Affiliation: Yakuza Wakagashira (Regional Leader) for the Miama area.
    Weapon(s): Family Katana blade, Delta Colt pistol, dagger in waist-sheathe.

    Personality: Raiko is the psychotic and unhinged bastard child of Yinto Hakashi. He has taken over the Wakagashira role from his father and gone out of his way to drown the family honour in chaos, debauchery and terror. Since losing his eye he has lost half his soul and the breach has been filled with darkness.

    Back Story: Raiko was the unloved half-child - always second best to his brother, Matsuo, who was being groomed as their father's replacement. Turning to drugs and alcoholism, Raiko drew a posse of lowlifes and psychotics around himself. Then, when Agent Macintyre and the FBI started clamping down on the Yakuza, Raiko called for violent reprisals. But his father refused and sent Raiko away on humiliating and cowardly chores to dipose of evidence and cover tracks. Finally, the sense of dishonour was too great. After a drunken and drug-fuelled night, Raiko made his violent bid for power. His brother Matsuo was driven into hiding, while Raiko confronted his own father in the family mansion in Miama. He strangled his father with his bare hands, but the old man didn't die easily. He clawed Raiko's eye out and took it with him to the grave. Now, the scarred and one-eyed Raiko Hakashi continues his reign of terror, half of his business committed to hunting his brother and the other half to punishing anyone who messes with him.
     
  10. Very nice Asmo! so we've got a Mafia, an FBI, and a Yakuza. That's good enough for me. Expect the IC up tonight!
     
  11. Ok IC is up and running. Enjoy
     
  12. Post up. I figured a reactionary post would be appropriate.
     
  13. :rose: I have my post written. Keeping length with you two is more than I'm used to XP. my post came out a little R rated...actually quite R rated. Is that going to be kosher?
     
  14. You're in a roleplay with me and McCarthy. It's gonna be hard to NOT be R-rated.

    I'm writing my post now. I guess me and Kvon will be competing for the "psychotic badass" spot.
     
  15. Kvon, having the word 'fuck' spoken repeatedly is enough to make the right squeamish person say something is rated R.

    Besides, whatever you have planned will only pale in comparison to some of Asmoman's past written works.

    Believe me when I say this.
     
  16. XD my favorite contest! well OK I'll post it now and ask for some criticism.
     
  17. This thread is supposed to be R rated. We are dealing with three of the biggest organized crime groups in the world, it's almost manditory to say "fuck". And McCarthy, great post! Looking forward to the other posts guys!
     
  18. Forgive me if my bio is a little. . . long-winded. I love this stuff, so I get carried away. ^^;

    Name: Setsuko Date
    Age: 28
    Gender: Female
    Description: Japanese (father), American (mother).
    Show Spoiler
    <a href="http://s58.photobucket.com/albums/g273/bad-juju/?action=view&current=angela.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g273/bad-juju/angela.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

    Affiliation: Neutral, Date clan
    Weapon(s):
    Tessen: “Were folding fans with outer spokes made of iron which were designed to look like normal, harmless folding fans”. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tessen

    Suntetsu: “[A] small weapon consisting of a metal bar with a ring attached. . . The ring was customarily warn on the middle finger, and the metal bar hidden by the palm of the hand” (Classical Fighting Arts of Japan, Serge Mol). The suntetsu can be spun around for kyusho atemi waza (striking nerve points), parrying/disarming attacks from bladed weapons.


    Personality: Setsuko is easy going and calm, which is why she always appears to be at peace with all around her. She has a deep love for nature and solitude; often giving the impression that she is shy, though she is quite the opposite. Extremely focused when playing instruments or training.

    Skills:
    Jujutsu: “literally meaning the "art of softness", or "way of yielding", is a collective name for Japanese martial art styles including unarmed and armed techniques. Jujutsu evolved among the samurai of feudal Japan as a method for defeating an armed and armored opponent without weapons.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jujutsu

    Daito-ryu Aiki-jujutsu: “Aiki-jūjutsu is a form of jujutsu which emphasizes "an early neutralization of an attack."[7] Like other forms of jujutsu, it emphasizes throwing techniques and joint manipulations to effectively control, subdue or injure an attacker. It emphasizes using the timing of an attack to either blend or neutralize its effectiveness and use the force of the attacker's movement against them. Daitō-ryū is characterized by the ample use of atemi, or the striking of vital areas, in order to set up their jointlocking or throwing tactics.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daitō-ryū_Aiki-jūjutsu

    Tessenjutsu: “The practitioners of tessenjutsu could acquire a high level of skill. Some became so skilled, in fact, that they were able to defend themselves against an attacker wielding a sword, and even kill an opponent with a single blow. Like so many other Japanese arts of combat during this era, tessenjutsu reached a high level of sophistication. For example, a famous swordsman in the late 16th century, Ganryu, was able to defeat several enemies with an iron fan.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tessenjutsu



    Back Story:

    Setsuko is descended from the Date clan, a samurai family in the service of the Tokugawa shogunate, but later would become supporters of the emperor during the Meiji Restoration. The Date clan still resides in the mountains of Kobe.

    Setsuko grew up surrounded by a large family, on Mount Rokko. Since it was such a long commute to the nearest town, Setsuko spent most of her time exploring the mountains with her cousins and siblings, learning various musical instruments, and training in Jujutsu with the rest of her family. From the day she turned three, Setsuko trained daily in her family dojo, and showed a natural ability in unarmed combat techniques. Her family knew that there was something special about the child when they found she could run throughout a house full of martial artists without making a sound.

    When she was eighteen, Setsuko went to live in Miami with her uncle, who ran a Judo/Jujutsu dojo, to work in the dojo as an assistant instructor and pursue a degree in music. She still lives in Miami, ten years later, as an instructor at her uncle’s school, and performs regularly at various venues in the city.
     
  19. Tegan that looks great! Glad to see another of similar interests. The thread is going great guys and I'll post hopefully tonight.
     
  20. I must make this decree:

    I am going to somehow manage to use the following song in a post:

    <object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/hDFns0LA7O0&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/hDFns0LA7O0&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

    Do not ask me how, just know that I intend to use it at some point.
