Sengoku Horizon

Look towards the Horizon

The Warring States Period: Fierce warlords fought for control of Japan, and many would perish. When a warrior falls, where does the passion they once held go? Possibly into something dear such as a favorite weapon or heirloom. These heirlooms have been labeled as “relics”, and those that carry them are labeled as “Scions." Recently more and more of these special relics have been activating, signaling the start of a great change as ancient power meets the modern world!

Now For The Local News, 11/01/2017 The dust has cleared after a fierce clash against the rebel Ikko Ikki monks. Now, as a tense period of calm spread over the island nation of Japan the students of Edo Bugei must figure out how to proceed in life after experience such intense conflicts and such deep loss.

Let's be honest, last year sucked (and the year before that), however, I believe, as a student, we are over looking a large factor that has been missing in our lives for the past few years.


Does anyone remember what summer vacation is like?

Seeking counseling with a weapons craftsman over a possible Master Craft on a non-standard equipment. More asking of what would be possible.

The train smoothly sailed down the railways passing the country side westbound from Edo. The country slowly turned into orange and reddish hues as the fall ended and gradually started showing signs of frost and light snowfall around the mountainous areas. The country gained its rustic charms that seemed to have made the environment as eye catching as it could be. The far off trees slowly went by in a scrolling scenery while the students within the cabin were as warm as they could be and dressed to be. Today was when they all embarked away from Edo for Kaga.

They all were informed to gather at the station mid-morning for light breakfast samples by whatever means each person felt. From there it was aboard the train. Their first stop would be near the outer edges of Kaga's boarders to a bridge park. A short bus ride would take them to the starting point of Ayatorihashi.

The red bridge stood out but didn't look so bulky and out of place with beams that crossed in triangular ways like a game of cat's cradle. A local tea house rests nearby for viewing of the river under the shade of red parasols to designate viewing terrace areas. Also nearby was some local onsen such as the Yamanaka Onsen but due to their travel party size, and stopping here early in the day, wouldn't grant them much time or reservations for a stay. Another location was put in mind.

After disembarking the bus, Suishoku cleared her throat nervously as she explained to their group of why they weren't exactly hearing straight to the castle town but instead opted to take a detour.

"First, I'd like to thank everyone for having the time to come with us. Although it will be for a short time, we hope to show as much as we can of our home Kaga in thanks for defending her and being our friends," Suishoku opened up donning a long light tan winter coat that reached to her knees covering warm leggings and basic ankle boots. At her side was her school duffel bag as her usual traveling 'purse' once all the school clutter was gutted out of it. "This is a location Yumiko here, your co-trip adviser, highly recommended. If you don't mind adding expressing your thoughts as well," she motioned to Yumiko as if handing an invisible microphone to the girl. This area was a highly recommended place that Suishoku wished to honor as well as leaving it for them to share their reasoning in a far more poetic fashion than Suishoku could muster on the spot.

Personality: However, the great Edo Earthquake served as a trigger that began to cause her to drift away from her twin and the two have drifted further apart since both emotionally and physically. Their lives While she may view him with some amount of affection, the feelings she once had before now grows bitter by the day toward not just him but her family as well for favoring her twin brother's safety over her own.

BACKGROUND:
(add on)

The after affects of the earthquake left the girl bewildered and lost to be without her other half. It was the rarest time she has ever felt vulnerable and for the longest after it did the absence made her feel bitter. For her brother, his utter disappear when she needed him the most. For her family, the neglect of ever acknowledging her health. The feelings of trust came falling apart bit by bit for family and the classmates around her. From this did Mika feel no longer tied to her family as a bond but only through birth and blood that made the girl feel less so a member of the family. Her original protective desires toward her brother Matsushina gradually turned to wanting to see him hurt and grow through that pain.

Even as the seasons turned to fall and he did return from province affairs, attempts of reconciling were like trying to force jagged pieces of broken glass together. She saw his intents but couldn't see past the charade for what was still there, a boy bound to becoming the next lord and there was no real place for her within the Honda clan. It made her angry and reclusive to no longer see him as a brother but an object like other students. If Mika was to protect herself better in the absence of her brother then she'll use what students around her as her vanguards. Viewing this as potential strength to harness for her track selection as a spy, Mika began putting her newly acquired thoughts during the Ikko upraising.

What sections are you changing:
Age: 19

OTHER: Sometimes wears floral hair pins to replace the one she lost but tends to go without a head decoration these days for the majority of the time. Has small scalp scarring on the upper right side of her head where her clover hairpin once sat since the Edo Earthquake.

BACKGROUND: Her life has been very normal in terms of leaving elementary school and waiting for her test scores to be announced of making it into the local middle school, spending nights with friends she's known since preschool hitting up karaoke machines and thinking about little else of the future. The Yuubae family is a third generation of sake brewers with her father manning the distribution side of things. The very idea of her being the heir was passed over to her cousin Masaru, who is being groomed by her Grandfather to be the heir. It was over the course of waiting for her testing results was a gift package presented to her instead from her Grandfather. The note read that it was to be a gift to wish luck and to relax about the testing results. What she got instead was a relic of a bygone age. Grasping the relic, a golden liquid began to pool from nowhere like a magic trick. She thought she could brush it off as some trick item from the west but once officials from the Shogunate arrived, she was dubbed a Scion.
This did not go unnoticed either from the Maeda clan, as they too were informed to have a Scion in their territory. Offerings of tuition were too good to be true for the Yuubae family to share the expenses to Bugei. Suishoku barely had a word in what she thought about it. Her friends were just as shocked as her. The short time left before school began again was long enough to share good-byes till her first enrollment.
A lengthy interview with more officials the following day deemed what her relic was and its capabilities which further solidified the move to Bugei. Suishoku found the setting to be jarring. It would be a lie to say that where wasn't some excitement at first. A new school, in trendy Edo, and some of the more noble students weren't so bad....when they aren't having mini political bouts of which clan was better. The school also seemed like normal until she was part of the many first year students till the branching of combat to non-combatant students. Being slotted with a healing relic, Suishoku was dubbed into the studying courses. The stiffening atmosphere was mostly made worse with each leering glare the rival clan lords gave each other made the effort too difficult to concentrate that she actually began to fail her classes. She even made efforts to avoid whoever the Maeda representative was during her first year. The Maeda are helping her with her schooling and thankfully little word on tail coating the person they sent. When the stress got too much, she fled to the school roof in an attempt to study there but ended up having her own distractions thank to an odd Azai clan lord. Unlike the other lords who went to carry on their rivalries with their futures, he did the opposite and put distance from it. It was from this and their odd encounter did the two became odd companions which grew to a friendship out of the serendipity times they would continue to encounter one another. Rumors spread of the two but, as of yet, has not caused any drama beyond hushed whispering and a few head turns. Neither of them were aware of doing anything that specifically seemed romantic, as far as she was concerned, so the confusion of the speculated rumors was soon lightly ignored.
By second year and several entry level missions, Suishoku found her role into the medical division in all thanks to her relic leading her this way. Being out in the field also required her to have some form of protection which she strangely adopted a whip of all things despite advisers offering more traditional tools. Regardless of any of this, it started to slowly become more apparent to her that school life in Bugei will end at some point. This brought her mind reeling back to her family and the Maeda funding. Big clans expect something in return for their given generosities. Life at Bugei resolved around this. Basic school work, ungodly studying conditions, and somehow student life fitting into it all; figuring out how to repay the Maeda Clan will have to be taken into account now.

OTHER: Sometimes wear floral hairpins or none with her hair kept down or tied up simply. Have a minor scar on the right side of her head when hair is parted a certain way since the Edo Earthquake. Birthday is November 2nd.

BACKGROUND:
(add on)
---
After the Edo earthquake did she feel the morality of her life and the lives of her friends become threateningly clear and what their duties were as bugei students. She was pulled from the rubble and hardly spent long in the medical tent was her semi-conscious body put to work along with her relic. She supplied her healing tonic to aid in intensive care students in the early hour of the disaster zone. Once able to walk was she then 'advised' to put herself into work in relief efforts of another school evacuation. The looks earned from the people and adults around her and their high expectations to go into the relief aid was the main driving factor in departing the ruins of Edo Bugei and board the helicopter with other able bodied students.

In the mid-quarter of her section year was she then promoted into Elite year by recommendation from Izuki-senpai along with Kurome and Eriko. This promotion brought new expectations and duties, even a higher pay outcome when completing Bugei for a position higher than basic retainer-ship. Something like this would be most beneficial for Suishoku's goals but the shock of actually meeting the qualifications made her worry of meeting expectations. Due to other Elite year students being highly combat proficient under the assumption that the Elite are the best of the best, much of her time was spent pretending the status she wears isn't there out of self consciousness in her weaker physical attributes.

All this carried over into the first assault upon the Shogun during the autumn festival where the Ikko declared their intent of war and the subsequent unease that plagued the coming winter holiday. It may have been the last time she'd see anyone she knew so Suishoku attempted to be more out going than usual to avoiding huddling up in her room as her first year self.
