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, 04/01/2018 The Chinese delegation have now arrived at the city of Edo. They have come to learn more about the state of Japan, the Shogunate, and it's Scions. We will be having a Lunar New Year's celebration, a school dance, and a combat tournament with them!

The fighting suit seemed comfortable enough for her body to move freely, although she had to question its aesthetic: too dark for her taste, something that only Youri would definitely love between them. Black and white, too plain, perhaps a symbol of putting everyone to an equal level. It was respectable that, at least for her and whoever agreed her same thoughts in the whole Academy.

For sure this wasn't for Bu, she felt that.

She invented an excuse for her brother to don't make him worried for her planned training session with her new friend, so that he won't get in the middle unexpectedly and therefoe disturb them. They had the whole afternoon to do their first training session in peace, she'll reassure her of that.

She picked up her phone and sent to Bu a message, in case she was in a place where it wasn't possible to answer a direct call.

KAY: Hey Bu! It's me, Kayoko! Just wanted to tell ya that I am ready to train with you. You'll meet me in the Training Area, I'll be waiting for you.

Once it gave a little "ping!" to warn that it was sent successful, she tossed it in her bag and picked out her twin War Fans beside her own Relic, immediately placed in a safe spot of the suit. All content and determined to finally get her hands "dirty", she started some warm up with her weapons while waiting for her, elegantly unfolded and folded with fast and stready movements of her wrists. She needed to know when to open or close them to change both the range and the strenght of her attacks, it was important if not vital.

Again her mind drove wild through lots of thoughts and questions: what are her powers? Is she aggressive or not? What if one of them get hurt? And most of all, what does she expect from her?

Greetings! Lady White's here!

Since I am still freshly new and I'd like to get more along with the Forum here, I am free for any little plot with my Sotan twins!
Keep in mind that they're new into the Academy, since the Second Arc briefly, so for now I'd like to make some "first meeting" threads or akin, of course anyone is welcome in! ^^

I am fine to do some threads either with one of the Twins or both, whichever you'd like in the Plot!

To know more about them, the Link about their Bios is in the Signature!

Eager to start! :3

That's all for now, Lady's out!

<CENTER><b>TRAITS</b></CENTER><br>
Calm, quiet and modest, a simple girl with good manners and a high education. She's almost like her brother, with a high sense of justice and duty, but she doesn't get in the middle of other affairs too personally like him. She tends to be standoffish on people she doesn't like at the first glance, filled with prejudices, making it hard to gain her trust, but with whoever she is confident she gets friendly and affectionate, seeking only the best for them.
<br><br>
<br>STRENGTHS: Will of iron, perseverance, magnanimous, multilingual (Japanese, English and Russian), great expressivity in matter of words.
<br>WEAKNESSES: She can be easily fooled since she's very naive; she can act absently quite often, she's touchy, she gets offended easily; sometimes she's quite prideful in a negative way.
<br>LIKES: Spring days, order, clean places; reading and writing, Art, museums, Photography; sweet food, hot drinks.
<br>DISLIKES: Winter days, cold in general, chaotic places or situations; bullies, rude or disprectful people; physical touch in general, if not allowed by her.
<br>AMBITIONS: She aims to be a Politic or a Lawyer, or at the very least an important Shrine Maiden somewhere in Japan.
</div>

<div class="content3">
<CENTER><b>COMBAT</b></CENTER><br>
WEAPON: Double War Fans; attacks focused on close quarters, fast and aimed to disorient the enemy, or else to have a solid defense against foes to support others.
<br>RELIC: A chashaku, named "Namida" by the original owner.
<br>RELIC OWNER: Sen no Rikyū.
<br>OWNER HISTORY: It is said that in this last tea instrument, Rikyu has transfused all his spiritual strength, all his aesthetic belief before he committed the seppuku.
<br>ACTIVATED ABILITY 1: For that Ability she needs one Fan. It can collect more air than the average and release it stronger in the aimed direction, that attack could easily push away bodies or torn small or thin objects.(1 turn cooldown)
<br>ACTIVATED ABILITY 2: This time, using both her Fans, the wind generated could easily shove down an average or slightly thinner body; it could break common glasses or flip down objects entirely. (3 turn cooldown)
<br>LOCKED ACTIVATED ABILITY 3: She gets surrounded by a full wind shield for several seconds, it can deflects meele or white weapons attacks, but gunshots could easily go past it. She can create the shield also for someone else, healing them a little (this is not included on herself).(Shield lasts three rounds)(five turn cooldown)
<br>PASSIVE 1: Basic Poisons have reduced in half their effect on her; strong or stronger Poisons affect her with their normal damage.
<br>LOCKED PASSIVE 2: Her Activated Abilities gain longer range. Allowing her to use them like a throwing weapon instead of melee.
<br>LOCKED AWAKENED MODE COLOR: Emerald Green.
<br>LOCKED AWAKENED ATTACK: Literally a little hurricane. The Fans' last attack could deal severe damages on people or objects around herself within a radius of 5-10 meters from her spot. However in the aftermath the Fans would be damaged as well as they could be holed or completely bended backward or both, rendering them useless to be used in a second time.</div>

<CENTER><b>HISTORY</b></CENTER><br>

<br>FAMILY:
<br>• Father: Ratimir Ilyich Rybakov, Russian
<br>• Mother: Chō Sōtan, Japanese
<br>• Sibling: A Twin Brother, Youri
<br>• NPC Friend or Mentor: Sen no Rikyu, Takeno Joo (of course in relation to books for her knowledge in Teaism); none yet in the Academy.
<br>
<br>BACKGROUND:
Their family line started with Sen no Sōtan (千宗旦) (1578–1658), also known as Genpaku Sōtan (元伯宗旦), who was the grandson of the famed figure in Japanese cultural history, Sen no Rikyū. He is remembered as Rikyū's third-generation successor in Kyoto. He was the son of Sen Shōan and Okame, a daughter of Rikyū, and is counted as the third generation in the three lines of the Sen family known together as the san-Senke.
<br>
However, Sen no Sōtan was the owner of the precious chashaku owned by his grandfather, Namida, which it passed on from generation to generation, until it ended up in the hands of Chō Sōtan, the first born beside three other sibilings, in the end of the sixties of the 20th Century.
<br><br>
Chō Sōtan however didn't continued the line of her ancestor by becoming a tea master, instead she passed that to another family member while she returned her studies. She later met a man from Russia, Ratimir Rybakov, while being in Nagasaki, and it was almost a love at first sight. Some years later, when they were in a stable relationship and away from any problems caused by her parents mostly, she married him in March.
Later on they moved their residence in Kyoto, in the Fushimi Ward, where to build their family in peace.
<br><br>
The twins were both born in 2002, the first one being Kayoko and some minutes later Youri.
<br><br>
The youth of Kayoko was well spent in a normal and quite well-heeled life, though she went in private schools for some issues related to her foreign father. She spent her free time in learning an instrument, the Koto and learn the rafinate arts around the wabi-cha: the Cha-No-Yu (the Tea Ceremony) and Chabana (the flower compositions for the Ceremony).
<br><br>
She begun to use the Fans thanks for her mother, at first for some cultural facts, then to dance with them, but soon later she decided to learn their use also in matter of self-defence, switching them with actual War Fans around the age of 14/15.
<br>
Already a little prodigy with them, she was well praised for her elegance in wielding them.
<br><br>
Her family, shocked by the events of the Ikko-Ikki Monks between 2015 and 2016, became more protective of their children, but Kayoko was instead willed to find a way to protect her homeland, hence deciding to join the Edo Bugeshi. At first her mother was rather disappointed and fearful for that decision, but she accepted anyway after she saw in her some good potentials to join the Academy, curiously enhanced with the Family Relic.
<br>
She was sent in the School with her brother for a better security, in the end of 2017.

<CENTER><b>TRAITS</b></CENTER><br>
He's a little jester, loving to prank occasionally girls or boys alike.
However, in more serious matters, he has a good and righteous spirit. He's charismatic and cool headed when he wants, or else he's very stubborn in his way, hardly one can change his mind if he has an objective, "An unshakable person" as many teachers described him. He's quite materialistic and Atheist, but he fully respects traditions, thoughts and beliefs of everyone. He's very caring and kind to his twin sister, to the point that they hardly argue; he acts like the "big brother" of the situation in groups and when he has to protect his sister in the everyday life. He can be a jealous type. He has a strong sense of justice. Between them, he's the most inclined to be the "Occidental-Type" than his sister.

<br><br>
<br>STRENGTHS: He has a good knowledge of Martial Arts, especially Karate; he's Multilingual (Japanese, English and Russian); he has a very good sight.
<br>WEAKNESSES: He tends to be easily angered; he's hothead and stubborn, reckless and instinctive; sometimes he doesn't know when to stop.
<br>LIKES: Japanese Rock/Metal bands (such as Dir En Grey or Moi Dix Mois), Occidental Culture in general, Summer days, training, being helpful; cold teas, refreshing stuffs.
<br>DISLIKES: Extremists in general, short-minded people, whiny people, fake people, whoever harass his sister; waiting, unrightful actions or accusions.
<br>AMBITIONS: Being able to be a part of the Police or some Military Special Forces in Japan.
</div>
<div class="content3">
<CENTER><b>COMBAT</b></CENTER><br>
He has no weapons nor he owns any particular powers, but he can fight pretty well. Sometimes he uses a pair of titanium knuckled gloves he bought to join the Edo Bugeshi. He's a Blue belt in Karate, soon to be ranked with the first Brown, thing he'll do after he'll be off the Academy. He'd prefer to learn some basic skills on firearms than on "foreig weapons".

<br>FAMILY:
<br>• Father: Ratimir Ilyich Rybakov, Russian

<br><br>
The twins were both born in 2002, the first one being Kayoko and some minutes later Youri.
<br><br>
His childhood was well spent alongside his twin sister but not much with the kids of their age due to their mixed ethnicity. Sometimes he picked actual "gang fights" against full groups of Japanese kids in the Public Schools, miracolously managing to get out from those mahyems most of the time with no serious wounds. However, that brought his parents to put him and his sister in a private school for their safety.
<br>
He later joined a Karate School in Kyoto to increase his natural talent on bare-handed combat, gaining each Obi with the highest grades and winning some tournaments against other Karate Dojos.
<br><br>
After the major events of the Ikko-Ikki Monks between 2015 and 2016, Youri joined the Edo Bugeshi alongside his sister. At first he and the family were against that, fearing for the naive and innocent nature of the young girl, but they later made a clear and simple compromise by letting her go with him beside, so that the two will keep to support and protect each other in this hard time for Japan.</div>
