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, 08/05/2018 The school dance is still ongoing as the seasonal news report reveals that a large ship has left England and is moving towards Edo!

<div class="content3">
Mori Hideyoshi is a well built, well educated young man. His love for metallurgy and mechanics work, along with his intelligence gifted from his parents, gives him a drive rarely seen in teenagers his age. This also has made him arrogant and condescending, not thinking he's the best, but better than most. When in combat, his love for fighting shows as he enters his battle trance, then advances toward his enemy to gauge their abilities against his. His attitude toward others is one of exchange; if you're useful to be around, he will be useful toward you. Rarely will he allow himself to be a defender to another person and not expect anything in return. His callousness has cost him before, but without it, he believes he will be taken advantage of for his talents.
<br>STRENGTHS: He is an incredibly talented, self taught metal-smith and mech builder. His ability comes mostly due to his intelligence, something years of tutoring and high end schooling have given him. His fighting ability is also above par, able to fight against toe to toe with adult soldiers in his clan, though not sufficient enough to always win.
<br>WEAKNESSES: His social skills are lackluster, never being the type for small talk. If there's no business to be had, there's no reason to talk. Some people claim he may have a touch of autism because of this trait and his skill in metallurgy, but tests have never been done to confirm this. He also cannot swim and detests being told what to do.
<br>LIKES: Creating new objects with his skill and being able to use them. Objects he creates are like his children, wanting them to be used efficiently and not destructively
<br>DISLIKES: Being in social situations. He has better things to do than carry on random conversations. His dialect when dealing with conversations can seem direct and ill-willed when really, he just doesn't want to carry on talking. His hands do all the talking he needs.
<br>AMBITIONS: Hideyoshi plans to become a renowned blacksmith, one of the few available in his province. He also plans to invent new creations while at Edo Bugei revolving around renewable energy sources using the studies he's gathered about such possibilities.

<div class="content3">
WEAPON: A broadsword. Claims circulate it was of Scottish origin, but nobody can substantiate it with proof. He also has his Bident relic with him, but will only use it offensively as a last resort.
<br>RELIC: A Bident, inscribed with the name of it's original supposed owner, Maeda Keiji.
<br>RELIC OWNER: Maeda Keiji
<br>OWNER HISTORY: Tell us a bit about your relic's owner. What made them so great? What clan did they belong to?
<br>ACTIVATED ABILITY 1: Lucky Shot - Hideyoshi focuses his energy into his sword or fist, showing a dull but noticeable orange glow, and strikes his opponent, dealing a critical hit against them, against all odds. This can be used to crack armors or weapons, or disarm opponents, never to kill them.
<br>ACTIVATED ABILITY 2: Extreme Fight or Fly - Hideyoshi's sense of time slows down dramatically, allowing him to dodge and prepare a counter attack against a physical attack or react to a gun or bow shot at him intended to severely injure or kill him. This effect must be activated before or during melee and weapon attacks, not after. Gun and bow shots must be known of before shooting in order to avoid being hit. The effect lasts one post before time returns to normal. Hideyoshi cannot use this for personal gain or attacks himself.
<br>LOCKED ACTIVATED ABILITY 3: Destiny Bond - Hideyoshi, after being given a severe injury, collects a large amount of energy from his relic into his hand and fires the orange ball at the enemy, dealing the same injuries Hideyoshi has to them. If there are no severe injuries, the attack cannot be used. This cannot be used to kill an opponent directly, but can be used to cause life threatening injuries if Hideyoshi has them. Due to the strain being placed on his body, if injuries are sufficient, this attack can render Hideyoshi unconscious.
<br>PASSIVE 1: Dodge Master - Critical hits and heavy strikes sometimes seem to slide off of Hideyoshi or completely miss, even when aimed carefully at him.
<br>LOCKED PASSIVE 2: Reckless Abandon - Small and medium grade attacks used against enemies hit more often, giving Hideyoshi the opportunity to launch flurry attacks, like punches, with little issues of accuracy.
<br>LOCKED AWAKENED MODE COLOR: The bident tips light up orange as Hideyoshi takes the weapon into his hand. The glow then transfers to him.
<br> AWAKENED ATTACK: Lady Luck's Playground - Hideyoshi strikes the ground with the blunt end of his bident, creating a zone 10 meters around the point of impact. There are no visible differences to those who see this, or Hideyoshi himself. All relics, aside from Hideyoshi's, caught within this zone have their effects negated for 5 rounds. If a Scion leaves the area of influence, they may use their powers, but will be unable to fire off attacks or use sensory abilities into the zone, dissipating immediately upon reaching the "wall." If within 5 meters of the point of impact, nearly all attacks on Hideyoshi will miss, and his attacks on his opponents will be super effective against them. Once five rounds have passed, Hideyoshi collapses and the effect is dispelled silently. </div>

<div class="content3">
<br>FAMILY: (If you have faceclaims in mind please note them.)
<br>• Father
<br>• Mother
<br>• Sibling
<br>• NPC Friend or Mentor (Optional)<br>

Please provide at least three detailed paragraphs about your character's life up until the present day. Anything that may be important to your character's life should be mentioned here. How did they learn to use a weapon? How did they get their relic? Please keep in mind most families would know what is and isn't a relic so the chances of just stumbling across one would be low. What was life like before and after entering Edo Bugei? Please make sure to include what province your character is from.

            Character Name: Viola Konishi
            Link to Character in archives:
            What section are you changing: Activated Ability 1
            What you want it to say: For increased mobility and support in spread fights, I was thinking about adding to her ability slightly. I'll highlight the change in text I had in mind.

            "ACTIVATED ABILITY 1: Force Palm (maybe change to Force Blast?)
            Viola extends her hand out forcefully, causing a concussive blow to be released from her palm. The blow knocks opponents back up to 3 meters. She must make direct contact and be effectively pushing the opponent or object away for the knockback to occur. She may also kick off of the ground or a sturdy object to propel herself in a linear direction up to 3 meters. This kick cannot be used on opponents like with her hands, and can only be used as a small burst to avoid objects and close gaps between her and her objective. (One turn cooldown.)"

            Was that door honestly a bathroom? I know I didn't see shower rooms going down the hallway like in a university... Oh, forget about it, I'll look at it when I get back.

            Viola descended the stairs leading to the lounge area she had passed by earlier on her way up to unload her belongings. Mika had pointed out a few minutes ago that this area had a cafeteria in it that would still be open to serve evening partakers like herself. What she didn't explain and what Viola ignored herself earlier while passing though, besides the size of the area, was all of the available activities for students. The variety was unbelievable to her; you could work out, lounge out, pig out, or even swim. The choice was yours. For Viola, at least for now, she decided she wanted to eat as her stomach reigned her in from her amazement to remind her that it was still there and needed food to negate the hunger from not eating for several hours.

            She approached the cafeteria and was impressed with the space and selection. At this hour, due to the number of people whom had come before her, the choices were a bit smaller than what she had assumed should be there, but regardless, was able to get a decent meal to satisfy her until morning. The staff working the back area helped Viola with locating what she needed and made sure she was satisfied with what she had.

            She departed the cafeteria with a smile and thanked the workers for their assistance and sat in the heart of the lounge to start eating her long awaited meal. The televisions in this area were all news stations typical of most sports bars and sit down restaurants; silenced with the subtitles on for interested parties to understand what was going on. Most of the conversations going on were experts talking about the stability of the Shogunate with varying opinions based on which station you frequented. One or two were tuned into weather channels, but again, nothing interesting, just a forecast of rain in the future. Typical, as Viola would be starting Guard duty soon and needed to prepare if rain were a constant problem.

            After seeing the forecast, she brought her attention back to her food as she began eating. For a bit, her mind cleared and she drowned out the rest of the world to focus on what was in front of her. For the first time since she arrived on campus, she was at peace, and knew everything would be alright. It would be a lot better, however, on a satisfied stomach.

            If a disruption in your typical style of living occurs, what better way to feel like you're home than continue your style in your new environment, right?

            Viola's short time in Edo has allowed her to develop a routine following very closely to her own at home. Her mornings start with preparing for school, a short time for prayers and meditation to prepare her mind, and a small breakfast. Classes were somewhat boring. No surprise there. Even back at home, they weren't interesting at all. She could pay attention to every word the instructor says, but just sitting there and listening seemed like a horrible way to interact with teenagers. She stayed, though, and kept her eyes trained on her sensei to try and retain the information.

            After school, she took a small trip to the Shinagawa Ward to perform some training similar to what her mother would have her do. She would run as far as she could to increase her endurance. The track team she was in at her old school, as well as Edo now, gave her what she needed for speed, so it wasn't necessary for any outside training she did. With her school uniform on and tonfa in her hands, she tried as hard as she could to simulate any missions she might take part of to make the act of moving with both easier to her. When the time came for her upcoming mission, she wanted to be ready, and not a disgrace. She put in her earbuds, instructed her phone via touch to start playing her music of choice, and took off.

            The roads she ran along all were within close proximity of the ocean. The path she initially chose when she started these runs were done to keep close memories to home, to remind her that she was here to honor her family, to make them proud, and to test herself. With that motivation, she would chase that goal. Viola has the weight of her future job and her own dreams weighing on her. She feels like running and continuing her training will get her one step closer to that goal. It also gives her a bit of time to escape those responsibilities before they set back in and she goes back to Edo, to continue her guard duties and return to her room, where she realizes that it's all real... She is chasing her dreams, but not exactly how she had planned.

            Her runs usually ended close to the bus stop to prepare for the trip home, but this time, something told her she needed to slow down a bit and enjoy the view. Viola had already taken time to take the sight of the ocean and scenery in, but today, it seemed a bit more serene and homely. She stopped and observed from a small hill overlooking the beach. The sight of it reminded her of the many trips her family took and of their luck being able to see this as often as they wanted. She began to count her blessings that this school was surrounded by such diverse areas and really gave many people opportunities to enjoy their natural scenery with little hassle.

            Viola took a seat on the hill and decided to update her plans slightly. She took her phone and looked at the bus schedule to see the next bus headed for Edo Bugei took off in about an hour. This gave her enough time to engage in some image training before needing to leave and gave time to take in the sights offered. She also contemplated grabbing a snack across the road at the general store, but decided against this in leu of time to continue her training.

            She crossed her legs, put her hands clasped together in her lap, and closed her eyes. Almost immediately, her mother appeared before her and the match began.

            To those outside looking in, she seems to be slumped over slightly, appearing to possibly be asleep. Her tonfa are laying at her sides, and phone is in her front shirt pocket with the music off, and earbuds out of her ears. She is wearing her Edo uniform, so those who see her know she is a student at the school.
