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, 06/01/2018 The Chinese delegation have now arrived at the city of Edo. Making friends and learning about Edo Culture is their current aim! In other news it is also time for the school dance event! Please bring your characters along!

June 1st. Dance night at the Edo-Bugei. Social interactions, and school politicking. Foreign affairs, pretty outfits, real smiles, and fake ones hand-in-hand. Music playing, and laughter sounding. All things most were wanting, or accustomed to.

Not Reika. Instead she had been sent for. One of those damn shadows. Slid open her window and just crouched in it, till she finally elected to give it attention. Someone had wanted her, had wanted her...expertise. What little she called knowledge was needed. Seemed it was an important night for another group out there as well. This one, all business and brutality. A Yakuza family was gathered in the Sumida Ward. And by gathered, they had meant all of the people who sat at the big damn table of this family.

Also meant that, about fully half of the hired muscle was going to be there. They wanted Reika there. At least the Shogunate did. The Edo police? Not at all.
---------------
Itsukara, Saigo. Captain of the Edo Police in Sumida Ward, hated this. There she was, Kagutsu, Reika. She had been on his list for years. Way down there...but a little over a year ago, she had jumped up the ladder quite a bit. He had her, in a warehouse. Surrounded with enough bodies and evidence to walk her through the trial and out the door to the prison in less than 15 minutes. Then some Hattori show up, say that she's property of the Shogunate and whisk her away.

That was a year ago. Hadn't seen her since, save for the file he had in his drawer. Now here she was again. This time in some sort of weird black outfit. And with an escort. Hattori ninja, from the looks. Told him she was an Edo-Bugei student, and was on loan to him for the night. He hated this situation, but he couldn't pass up the oppurtunity in shutting down the Yoshimori Yakuza family. Bit more high stakes than the family that Reika had been part of.

Drug trafficking? Yes.
Weapons smuggling? Yes.
Sex trafficking? Yes.
Murder for hire? Yes.
Killed government officials? Probably.

He wanted them badly. So badly, that he was willing to turn his attention off of the 16 year old psychopath. He needed some heavy firepower for this, and his people were as armed, and armored as they could be. But that didn't mean much. These guys were actual killers, and his people...not so much.

"Listen, Miss Reika. I don't like you. You're a punk, and a psychopath. You should be behind bars...or buried. But this one time, I'm gonna cut you some slack. The people under me have families, they have people that care about them. I care about them. You? I don't give a shit if you end up dead at the end of this. Hell...I might just congratulate the son of a bitch that ends you." He stopped, noticing that she didn't seem at all like she was paying attention.

"Hey! You little shit. Are you listening to me?"

Reika turned her head, as if regarding a squirrel that just wandered up. "2 men at the front door. 5 in the lobby just after. 6 floors to clear. 4 man patrols, 2 patrols per floor. 10 HVTs, 15 men per target. Enter in, dispose of as many as possible. Kill all the HVTs, spare those who surrender. Your people watch the back and fire exits." She took a breath, and her trademark saddistic grin spread across her face. "Anything I miss, Captain Itsukara?"

Captain Itsukara took a step back, and swallowed hard. He had never really felt this way before. He knew she was dangerous, but now...like this, something felt off. All his instincts told him, jump behind cover and hope that there was enough spears to stop her. "N..no." He shook his head and moved back to the car, and lit a cigarette.
--------
Tama lit his cigarette. He had guard duty, a fat boring way to spend his night. There was a knock at the door, and when he slid it open...there was a girl there. She was...kind of cute looking, but he was professional. "Go away kid, unless you want to get beat." He tried to sound tough and intimidating. He was about to try again when something felt...off. There was a pain in his stomach, and when he looked down he noticed a blade in it. One coming from the other side of the door. He coughed and sputtered and pulled himself off the blade.

His partner turned to him, and gasped. He dropped the phone from his hand, he had been calling his girlfriend, and rushed to him. The door was kicked in, and Hota fumbled with his blade, as the girl stepped in. He didn't get far, anywhere really. The girl's katana sliced him across the face. Right across the eyeline, preventing him from doing much of anything. He dropped to his knees covering his bleeding face as he screamed. The toe of her boot came up into his neck, and that was it for Hota.

Tama coughed a bit more as the girl turned to him. He was astounded. Two blades in her hand. But what really caught his attention, was the open shoulders. There he could make out the Yakuza Irezumi on her. And they definitely not fake. He could tell, the look in her eyes. This wasn't new to her...she'd done this before. She bent down towards him, and said something. His brain didn't fully grasp it, but his subconcious spoke for him. "No..." The blade slipped in, and slipped out...and Toma was no more.
-------
Reika had that smile on her face. That smile only a maniac would have. This was what she was. A taker of lives. She cracked her neck a bit and then stretched. Two already dead, so many more to go. She tapped something on her chest, and her earbuds kicked in. They can't surrender, if I can't hear them.

She hummed the first part before moving forward, coming towards the lobby she began to sing. It wasn't great, she was never much of a singer. But she didn't care...tonight everyone was an adoring audience member.

"We come from a world of oblivion bad dreams. I got all I need strapped right to my hamstring. I'm not really bad, I'm just made up of bad things. I'm really not a mad man, the voices keep asking."

They came at her, blades drawn. The first one came in roaring, his blade raised high above his head. She bent low and put her shoulder to his gut, and flipped him over her. The next hadn't been ready for that, and so found himself on a blade that was already in motion for a kill. He felt the tip slide in and pull up from his hip, to his rib before coming out. He slid to the ground, as the third man back pedaled. Instincts took over for him, and told him to get out of here. Unfortunately, it was already too late. A leg kicked out his while he tried to turn and run. He fell and cracked his nose on the tiled floor, before a blade went through him. The fourth guy came in high and low, dual-wielding tantos. He had a good stance, and a good hold on his weapons.

But Reika was better with two weapons. She pulled aside, letting one of the blades slide across her, slicing her leg lightly, and the other grinding harmlessly off her vambrace. Her head met his hard, and broke his nose. He reeled backwards, off balance and was then kababed through the chest by both of her's. The first man stood up and noticed the scene. He thought he could turn and run, thought he had enough distance between himself and this psycho-girl. Then a shining red blade parted his upper torso from his lower torso.

"Born with the soul that don't wanna be saved. Everytime I look around, I see what a fiend made. Everytime I die, I hope they're diggin' up my grave. An undead one, like the flag that I wave."

She stepped forward, and stopped. She counted four...and had presumed there would be five. A side door opened up, and out stepped a man from the bathroom. She sighed and shook her head. [i]Shit like this never happened when I was an enforcer.[i] The man blinked and looked around, then saw Reika standing there. Blood dripping from the blades. This one, was sane. Instead of attacking he pushed back into the bathroom and pulled his walk-talky out. He started shouting a warning through it before a blade went through his neck.

"Yami? YAMI!?!"

Reika bent down and picked it up. She pressed the button down, and sang in it.

"I'm not afraid to cry from this cocaine sickness. I'm not afraid to die, let the good book witness. I ask and give none, nope, no forgiveness. It's the day of the dead, and you're on our hit list."

She paused. "So come all you misfits! Bitch, you're on our hit list!" She tossed the walky-talky down and stepped back out.

Already she could hear some coming down the stairs. "Hold on, Holy Ghost. Go on hold me close. Better run, here we come. It's the Day of the Dead!"

10 men, weapons drawn, hurried down. Steps were taken one at a time, but a quick pace. It was like a thundering drum inside the stairwell. Soon the doorway slammed open and the men rushed and filled the hallway, trying to get to the lobby. But the front line stopped and stared. Bodies laid out before them. Pools of blood slowly congealing on the floor. The rest crashed into them, but got nowhere. The few that could saw the girl standing there. Some, who knew, started to shake. They had heard of Reika...an extremely dangerous and maniacal enforcer. This was not something you just rushed headlong into.

Others thought they should do just that. It didn't really matter though. With a flick of her blade...they all ended there. Stuck together, huddled in a hallway, they were an easy and impressive target for her second active ability. An energy shimmered and flew at them at waist level. The front row collapsed forward, and the rest slumped about, as upper torsos were parted from their legs. Hands were parted from their arms, if they had been holding them at their sides. And weapons were split at the same point.

Reika merely hummed and moved forward. She stepped gingerly through the mess, and entered the stairwell. She tapped her throat and held a few fingers there. "First floor cleared, moving up."

She moved up the stairs and came to the second floor landing. A boy was there, not all that much older than her. He stared, eyes wide. Reika thought she might just pass this one up. That was, until the boy tried to jump her with a small billy-club. She sighed and side-stepped his over-reached attack. She kicked him hard in the butt, which was more than enough for him to go up and over the railing and...well gravity did the rest. She shook her head, and kicked in the door.

Two of the HVTs on this floor. Some high level connections, non-combatants. Though she figured they might beg or something. That at least wouldn't be fun. Most of the guards had already moved downstairs, or were probably on another level up. Only a couple left on this floor.

"Light party here."'
