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!

The sun was slowly setting down over edo. The sky filled with orange and purple colors. There wasn't a single cloud in the sky making it a perfect sunset. Jinn a second year wad sitting on the edge of the rooftop of the school building with his legs dangling down the edge. Jinn was known to be a lazy person that doesn't care and never really shows any emotion on his face.

While he was sitting on the roof he had a guitar resting on his right leg and strummed the strings one by one making sure they were in tune. He took a deep sigh before he slowly started playing some simple chords finger style.

After playing for a few moment he was quiet for a few seconds making sure he didn't hear anything behind him thinking he was alone on the rooftop. He started playing again although this time he started singing. His voice may be soft but it came over the sound of the strings.

"I know the sound of each rock and stone,
I embrace what others fear,
For you were not to roam
in this forgotten place,
Just the likes of me
are welcome here,

Everything breathes
and I know each breath,
To me it means life,
to others it's death,
It's perfectly balanced,

perfectly planned,
More than enough for this man...

Like every tree stands on its own,
Reaching for the sky
I stand alone,
I share my world
with no one else,
All by myself,
I stand alone,

I've seen your world
with these very eyes,
Don't come any closer,
don't even try,
I've felt all the pain
and heard all the lies,
But in my world
there's no compromise,

Like every tree stands on its own,
Reaching for the sky
I stand alone,
I share my world
with no one else,
All by myself
I stand alone,
All by myself
I stand alone.





Jinn stopped playing and he opened his blue grey eyes and stared into the sunset with a small sigh

"Bravo!" A shrill voice called out while clapping her hands excitedly. "You sing as well as my brother!" The voice continued as the figure approached him to listen more apparently, if he'll ever sing again.
Some more steps and the figure appeared to be just one of the various new students of the Academy in the past months, voluntarily lost to find some new adventures or a bunch of new friends to make in the wide building of the Edo Bugei.
Maybe this ending day is her lucky day.

The black haired girl tried a timid approach then, hoping that she haven't disturbed him with her abruptly arrival.

"Where did you learnt? It's your natural talent?"

The moment he heard someone clap he stopped playing and turned his head towards the sound. While he turned his head a couple of locks from his thick dark hair fell infront of his left eye. He looked towards the girl with a calm expression. "uhm thanks." Jinn wasn't used to getting compliments though since he was mostly getting yelled out by teachers for not doing anything or breaking the rules of the school. He got some compliments here and there though but never really knew how to respond to them.

When she said he sang like her brother his raised his left eyebrow behind his hair though making it hard for her so see. "You are a family person aren't you?" Jinn said in a friendly tone toward her.

A small sigh left his mouth and started looking towards the sunset again when she asked him who he learned to play from. "I learned to play from my father. He always played for me during training and before bedtime"

His point about how he learnt to play the guitar and sing along it made her smile more wide. "It's wonderful when a parent give you something to care about dearly. From my mother I have learnt the use of the Koto, y'know that long board with strings on... it's like playing a long guitar on a table, heh. Sadly I couldn't carry mine here, although I am sure that I'll find one here."

As he sounded friendly towards her, she took a short breath, almost a sigh of relief. She gave him enough time to answer her and nodded slowly at his first question of shortly before.
"I... yes, let's say yes, I love to stay with my family, it gave me the strenght to come here." She replied with a little bow of her head in front of him.

"Pleased to meet you by the way, I am Sotan Kayoko, First Year in the Academy." She politely presented herself in a little pause between them.

Jinn nodded to her when she spoke. He knew the instrument she was talking about and has heard it being played in school. He though for a couple of second of where he heard it though. "Big chance you can find an instrument like that in the music room. Not sure though." Jinn said with a small smile on his face.


It was pretty obvious she was a family person to him by the way she talked about them. Jinn used to be one although after not seeing them for a couple of years jinn grew a bit away from his family. He doesn't spend his holidays with them anymore since he had to go to school most of the time.

Jinn raised his eyebrow ones again when she suddenly bowed before him and introduced herself. Jinn was pretty western in most things and bowing wasn't really in his nature anymore especially when someone bowed to him. It always felt strange sincd bowing to him felt putting yourself below someone els while everyone was equal in his mind. Jinn smiled though towards her. "please don't bow to me Kayok. I am Jinn Kuki but call me Jinn." Jinn said with a smile while he started to lean back a bit resting with his hands behind him.

Glad to hear that there was actually one in the Academy made her heart flutter with joy. "Marvellous! I will surely check that place again when I can. The first time I haven't found it there."

However, after their presentations she was caught a bit unprepared by his chill attitude in contrast with her formality. It was indeed stronger than her to treat everyone with this strictness of gestures and expression.
"Oh, uhm... fine, Jinn." She said with a hint of embarrassment, hidden away with a little sigh to modestly pause their conversation.
Her attention returned to the sunset, a sight that she always cherish, noticeable for her way of contemplating it directly.

In these hours my parents are surely taking the last cup of tea of the day in front of their window. She thought silently.

"Do you like sunsets too?" She suddenly asked at Jinn, wondering why he decided to come here all alone to sing and play his guitar. "There are a lot of places to play the guitar in peace... why have you choosed this place in particular?"

Jinn chuckled a bit when he hears the hint of embarrassment in her voice. It happened to him allot when he introduced himself to people. He knew he wasnt a traditional person and it was pretty obvious just by looking at him.

Jinn nodded while he laid his guitar next to him. "yep sunsets and sunrises are that small part of the day where everything normal turns into something more mysterious and daring. Although sunrise does the exact opposite." Jinn said calmly."

Jinn looked towards her when she asked why he went to play guitar here and not somewhere else. "Well I got two places I play and they are both on the roof although the other roof is the roof or our dorms. I if you stay long enough until the sun is gone and it is dark you will see why I choose this place." Jinn said staring into sunset towards the city skyline in the distance.

"Sunrises are more magical though! If you remember one you saw, you may have noticed the sky ready to explode, starting from light blue, then gold and at last the blinding coral sun awakening from the lilac and blue powder clouds, giving back all the color spectrum on the panorama before your eyes..." She said as she "drew" such imagination with her arms in front of the sunset with emphasis.

"Sunsets... they sadden me a little instead, maybe it's because my disdain of the night. Yet we need sunsets to see sunrises." She kept to say with her allusive symbols and images, before she hushed a moment to look back at him with an embarrassed blush on her embarrassed face.

"Huh, g-guess I've exaggerated like my usual... s-sorry if I may have annoyed you with my senseless chatters..!"

Lastly, she returned to see the panorama and get what he meant with his last sentence.
After the setting Sun... Oh!

"It's the so-called Blue Hour!" She beamed. "I see then, that is really special after a sunset."
