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.

<br>EYES: Slightly pink, due to albinism.
<br>HEIGHT: 5'5"
<br>BODY TYPE: Thin and malnourished looking, pale white skin due to albinism.
<br>STYLE: Wears torn up clothing that belonged to him when he was discovered in the city. White shirt with black stripes and a dirty pair of blue jeans. Refuses to wear the uniform of the school, and no one tries to make him.
<br>OTHER: Scars upon scars litter his body, along with a permanently malnourished appearance leads many to believe that he was abused as a younger child. Some of the wounds and scars seem fresh, leading others to believe that he is harming himself.

<div class="content3">
Byoki tries desperately to make friends, but sometimes ends up attacking them. He has been sent on a few missions, and usually is sent in as a distraction, playing the part of the poor lost kid and unleashing his powers, allowing others to fulfill the mission. He is described as creepy and unsettling, but most of the time friendly. He is often seen with his ultra muscular ward Doctor, Dr. Sheamus, routinely seen blindfolding and bearhuging the poor insane child to carry him off or calm him down. He is aware of other's opinion of him and uses it as an advantage in stealth, combat, and social situations.
<br>STRENGTHS: Intimidating and unsettling to enemies, extreme pain tolerance, high speed, desensitized to violence, can be very stealthy and quiet.
<br>WEAKNESSES: Albino: Sensitive to bright light, easily sun-burnt and blinded by the sun. Insanity: "random" outbursts, violence, etc. Unpredictable behavior and speech patterns. (Caused by triggers that cause him to go through flashbacks of his past), intimidating and unsettling to allies.
<br>LIKES: His psych doctor (Irish-Japanese immigrant) Dr. Sheamus (usually nearby at all times).
<br>DISLIKES: People being mean to him, anything that reminds him of his past.
<br>AMBITIONS: Unknown.

<br>RELIC: A ring taken from his deceased mother, too small for his
<br>RELIC OWNER: Arai Hakuseki
<br>OWNER HISTORY: March 24, 1657 – June 29, 1725. Known as Hi no Ko, due to his hot temper and his brow resembling the kanji for fire when he was angered or irritated.
<br>ACTIVATED ABILITY 1: Paranoia Hallucinations - Upon activation, anyone in a 3 foot radius beings to feel extremely paranoid, and can even see or hear things that aren't there. These Hallucinations are minor such as hearing their name whispered at them, seeing things move out of the corner of their eye, etc. Lasts up to 5 posts.
<br>ACTIVATED ABILITY 2: Parasitic Sympathy - Requires eye contact at less than one foot. Causes the target to deeply sympathize with the user to the point of not attacking or even defending the user from other enemies. Lasts 4 posts.
<br>LOCKED ACTIVATED ABILITY 3: DON'T IGNORE ME! - The user cries out. This causes all living creatures in the area to feel that they MUST look at the user for at least 1 a post. Causes a feeling of dread to those effected.
<br>PASSIVE 1: People who make eye contact with him find themselves having a difficult time breaking the eye contact, almost mesmerized by his gaze and unable to look away. This can affect multiple people at once. Causes people lock in to feel unease and slight paranoia.
<br>LOCKED PASSIVE 2: When someone has locked eye contact due to Passive 1 for more than one post, his eyes glow blue as if on fire from a paranormal source that only the affected person (people) can see. At this point it requires the user, or an outside force acting on either the user or the victim, to break eye contact. Post by post, the world fades away as the user becomes even brighter.
<br> AWAKENED ATTACK: Mind Shatter- A person, or multiple people, who has/have reached 4th post of uninterrupted eye contact has their mind broken. Semi-permanent insanity follows, causing at least 3 threads of random, extreme emotional outbursts and unprovoked agitation and violence. A side effect of this persists even longer still, as the victim is afflicted with a mild paranoia and is occasionally disturbed by hallucinations of the user's eyes.</div>

<br>FAMILY: (If you have faceclaims in mind please note them.)
<br>• Father: Unknown - Deceased
<br>• Mother: Unknown - Deceased
<br>• Caretaker: Dr. Sheamus

Byōki grew up. That is the only thing that can be said for certain by anyone who met him or knew of his existence. If you could see through time and space, you would see a young albino child growing up in a violent household. Born to a woman and a man, and considered a curse upon them by his father. He was never given a name, and was only taught to speak by his mother and from the streets that he often wandered in his nameless town.

His father became a drunk after disgracing himself as a samurai, failing to protect someone he was hired by. Taking the title of ronin, he took to the same streets his curse of a son did, though ending up in a gutter more often than not. The beatings got worse, and it became a joyful time when Byoki's father was not home, and his loving mother would embrace him, and sing lullabies through the night, whispering how she appreciated him, the nameless son.

One night, Byoki's father returned home. Drunk. Angry. Violent. Beating the child within an inch of his life, finally giving him a name. Byoki, Sickness. His mother in a fit of self defense, used a butcher knife to stab the poor child's father repeatedly. He was still alive, and with a meat cleaver, she removed his fingers, hands, and started working on his arms before realizing he had perished. She dropped the cleaver, horrified at her deed, and took her son on the run, eventually ending up in a forest at the base of Mt. Fuji, Aokigahara, The Sea of Trees.

A distraught mother desperate for release from the terrible life she was living. Two ropes and a common location. She and her son were to leave the world behind in the branches of the forest of Aokigahara. By luck, or some higher purpose, one rope snapped, leaving a distraught Byoki behind in the world, as she passed into the gates of the afterlife alone. Her body was the last thing he remembered of her, and it haunts his thousand yard stare to this day. The rescue workers that found Byoki on a routine search of the woods put in their report, special powers, contact Bugei academy. A few of them seemed to loose their grip on reality as they stared into his soulless pinkish eyes, as if they could feel the emotions he had buried inside him.

He came to the academy under the guidance of a special council whom Byoki knew none of, nor could remember the names of. This special council allowed him access to the academy to undergo therapy as well as to hone his abilities into something useful. He is closely watched, and contained if his powers lose control, blindfolded and placed in a straight jacket, he is usually carried off to a place on the campus unknown to the rest of the students, re-purposed for his exclusive use. His room, his cell, his isolation chamber. In there, he waits to return to the world again.

I would like to have a monthly, or maybe twice a month depending on how fast it goes, contest based around character creativity. A song will be selected, any song at all, and a character must be created themed to the song. The character will be judged on creativity as well as viability, meaning the character must not break any forum rules or be over powered in excess, and finally in how well it fits the theme of the song presented for the contest. Winner will get a certain amount of points assigned by the staff.

This will exercise our user base's creativity in character design, as well as push them into areas that they may not be aware of in terms of character design for future characters, bringing possibly more interesting and complex designs to the forum at some point. Plus, character design is fun!

Yami's first time actually being a member of the club was a weird one. He wasn't used to the attention he was getting. It was supposed to be about learning how to pour tea, stay attentive to your guest, and how to be polite, but so far it's been girls who are desperate for a date. Some of the other members seemed like they were having a good time with their guests, but for now, Yami's table was empty.

He had two European style teacups on his table, as well as a small kettle and a few other things pertaining to tea. The young looking poison artisan sat on the side of the table that allowed him to face the door of the room that the club was allowed to occupy. Yami had a notepad on his table, using his free time to go over doseage of a new poison he was working on, and with a free hand that wasn't involved in calculations, he was idly pushing and flicking a square of sugar around the tablecloth.

Only a day or two after King, the Yakuza lord of East Edo, had perished by Kitsu's hand. He had already brought some of his scouts to the area to spread out and establish their presence in this new part of the city. He enjoyed his position so far, but he had been told by many of his associates that his dressings are out of style. His kimono was reminiscent of days gone by, and though irritated by being told such, he couldn't help thinking about it as he walked the street, and even as he passed the still smoking remnants of the building that King met his end behind he couldn't think of anything else.

One of the shops in this area was a store that catered to the more wealthy side of the city. Suits, ties, fancy dresses, and expensive silk button up shirts were the big sellers in this store, though they also sold regular clothing as well. He opened the front door and was greeted brightly by a few employees who stopped and bowed to him as they do for every customer who enters the store. He began to look around and was addressed a few moments later by someone who had a tailor's tape measure slung around their arm, as well as several pins stuck in their mouth. They asked very excitedly if he would like to be measured for a fine suit. He looked a bit sheepish before reluctantly agreeing and he was whirled around to a dressing room where phrases like "Don't touch me there!" and "HANDS OFF MY GUN" could be heard coming from behind the curtain.
