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!

Edo Bugei Academy, a cloudy morning with fog and possible rain later

Since the incident in Odawara Jinn, Kitsu, and Makoto had been on school arrest with their relics stripped. Today, a very serious looking man had come to gather them. The man was old, though his body was thin he had extremely deep set eyes, as well as short, gray hair. His formal robes colored all black and on his back a golden seal of the Tokugawa Shogunate. It was clear from the man's crests on the front of his robe that he was an extremely senior Tokugawa official. In fact he was the Minister of the Right, Ajibana. With him stood four metsuke and a young man with an extremely cocky smile on his face. He looked like a scrapper and had his arms crossed. His outfit was that of a Bugei Academy elite student. The man's name was Tachibana Ryu, and he was considered at present to be the highest ranked marital arts student at the Academy. With a bit of a smile looked around.
"Man, not how I figured I'd be back at Edo Bugei." he said with a bit of a laugh.

The group of six walked through the campus towards Edo Bugei's main building, forcing everyone they walked past to stop and stare at them. The man's gaze fell upon the school building as he looked at the metsuke.
"GO!" and with that the fairly normal day at Edo Bugei was interrupted by a squad of metsuke going to a very specific classroom. With hands at their sides, ready to draw swords or rope for arresting Ryu smiled.
"We have their class schedule, and they don't have relics anymore. I dont think you guys need those. Plus hey, I'm here!" he said with a smile.

All three students had been gathered in a small room on the first floor to meet with the Headmaster. The Headmaster was listening carefully, trying to hear from the three about what had happened in Odawara only a few weeks ago as the door slammed open and Ryu walked in.
"Headmaster Hosokawa. It has been a long time." Ryu said and gave an extremely deep bow before looking at the three students.
"Hey, sorry to barge in like this but you three are under arrest by order of the Shogunate. You are hereby charged with supporting rebel uprisings, betraying the Shogunate, and the death of a Provincial Lord appointed by the Shogun himself. I'd really prefer if you guys could come with me to Edo Bugei, but if you want to resist that's fine too." he said with a large grin, his Elite Student costum clearly standing out. If the students looked at the Headmaster he would grimace a bit.
"I would hope all three of you would go with these menw without incident. I'm sorry, but the charges are quite real, and they have legal right to execute you if you try and resist."

Jinn would sit in the window staring outside. One foot on the windowsill while watched the clouds pass by. A judge yawn passed his lips while he expression grew a bit more tired during it.

Jinn was quiet he didn't say a single word not even when asked. He was just sitting there not wearing his student uniform. He was wearing a plain black zipped hoodie with a white shirt and some black slim fit denims. Around his feet were some simple basketball shoes.

He played a bit with a silver necklace around his neck although his signature ring wasn't around it anymore. Eye of his blue grey eyes shot towards the side when the people barged in. Jinn rolled his eyes a bit in responce of the rushing in.

Jinn stood calmly while he let another huge yawn escape. "Could we hurry this up. I got a date later." Jinn said calmly towards the guy. Jinn's expression on his face kept tired and lazy and so was the tone of his voice. Jinn wanted to have this done quicky so he could go home soon since he wasn't on the mission anyways.

I think we can all agree that the one actually trying to explain the situation with some accuracy was Makoto. We can also agree that while Kitsu had rightfully exposed the fact that maybe only a small percentage of the mob were real rebels and that the rest were all just desperate, scared individuals...she was also throwing him under the bus for his actions.

He shot the two samurai escorts when they could have probably knocked them out if they misbehaved, as in attacking people they could've dissuaded from rioting.

He scared the everloving piss out of them while trying to incite them TO riot while Makoto was trying to get them to disperse and let them look into the issue with Lord Okubo themselves.

He outright attacked every guard that was in their path during the crisis in question while she was trying to NOT to do so, or at least no lasting harm.

He was the one who outright killed Lord Okubo without so much as even trying to give the man a chance to live.

And, of course, at no time did he listen to her at any time when she told him not to do things, things that he thought were a good idea and they weren't, which meant that nothing short of killing him would stop him...and she knew THAT because they had a prior altercation where she tried to disarm him.

At no time did she mention that she had any idea where Jinn was or what he was doing because...while she DID feel she knew, it was not something she could confirm. And if you can't confirm it, it may as well just be here-say. But still...the Headmaster would be able to see clearly where the point of contention was. Makoto remained in a controlled calm while reporting normal facts, but then she would tense up every time Kitsu was involved, and if he tried to interject, she would literally tell him to shut up and wait until she was done before opening his mouth. She just wasn't having it from him.

"As far as I'm concerned, the one at fault is whoever assembled this team with him in it, whoever put a weapon in his hand, and whoever trained him to fight. That, and Kitsu himself. There was no 'team' here. It was just Kitsu being an unscrupulous ass, and me without the authorization to put him down, though I was sorely tempted."

And that's when the entourage burst in and said their peace.

"Not guilty, on all counts. There's your man."

She pointed over to Kitsu.

"But I'll accompany you because I actually do what people ask me to."

Those who knew him, aka those who were in his classes, would notice the sudden lack of Iga clan seals on his clothing, as well as bandages on his fingers caused by prying off the seals from his clothing. His attitude had drastically changed as well, with him seeming to stay to himself instead of flaunting his gangster 'no holding back' attitude. He knew what was coming, and told himself that he would simply go with them to be executed or jailed forever. He managed to get a message to his gang, appointing his most trusted scout as leader after expecting that he wouldn't return. He put all of the money raised by the activity of the gang into an account in that person's name and said his farewells. He instructed them to put the heads he had taken, now skulls with their names etched in their foreheads, and a brief description of how they died, in a safe place.

As he sent these messages, he almost knew they would be intercepted. He felt the same eyes of that damned ninja following him everywhere he went, as well as the fact that he was being closely guarded as part of his 'academic arrest'. With all of his worldly affairs taken care of, even going so far as to send a message to his father explaining the situation, Kitsu told himself to just give up when the time came...

The day arrived. An interrupted class and a meeting with the headmaster, and instead of paying attention to their conversation, he simply goes over what his Seppuku poem would be after he is found guilty. The only thing he had said to the headmaster was that it was all his doing, and the other's stories would probably corroborate this.

When the time came, and he was told not to resist, and not only did he not, but he stood up almost immediately and began walking out slowly. It was almost sad to see the firey not-so-Iga-anymore so depressed. But when you remember the fact that he murdered 3 people with very little evidence.

"Could we hurry this up. I got a date later." the words left Jinn's mouth and the elite student laughed.
"Date? haha. You'll be lucky if you get to go home alive. Do you really think they'd send a top student and multiple armed samurai if you didn't do something wrong?" Ryu folded his arms and scoffed a bit as the men with him approached the three students, tying their hands behind their backs and taking any weapons they may have had on them before walking them out of the building like criminals. Many of Edo Bugei's students, both on the quad and inside their classroom's, would see the three being escorted to the school gates and put in a black van with the Tokugawa clan's logo on it. Once they got in all three would be sitting next to one another and have their legs bound together. Making it impossible for them to escape. Meanwhile as Ryu turned to leave, Headmaster Hosokawa stopped him.
"I'm glad to see you back in Edo, Ryu." he knew the boy from very early on. Tachibana Ryu was one of strongest students at Edo Bugei, and had been away the past two years tracking down and killing Ikko Ikki groups still bent on attacking Edo.
"Thank you, Headmaster." with that he gave a deep bow before walking off and getting in a separate vehicle. He had clearly just been the muscle to arrest the students. Now Ryu was gone, and the three students now sat in the back of a vehicle, their charges still unread, and currently on their way towards Central Edo.

The ride would take quite a while. The van seemed to move slowly and go along the most crowded routes possible. Likely to avoid side streets that could have possible ambush points set up by any of the students or affiliated groups. When the van finally arrived at Edo Castle's grounds the three wouldn't be entering Edo Castle proper but instead a large building in the shadow of Edo Castle. It was a justice building used by higher level metsuke as a court house and office. The three would be taken to the basement of the building and have their legs unshackled before being thrown into a large prison cell and having the door slammed shut and sealed behind them. It had bars, but not spaced far enough apart for them to slip through. About an hour late a man in metsuke looking robes and a long black goatee would walk down and gaze at the three of them.
"Well, you obviously know you are under arrest. So I can skip that bit." he said rather bored as he looked at three photos in his hand then at each of them before settling on Jinn.
"Kuk, Jinn. Of the Kuki clan.
You are charged with unwilling and willing aid in a coup against the Shogunate.
You are charged with attacking a city of Japan.
You are charged with possibly declaring war on another clan.
You are charged with disobeying direct orders from the Shogunate.
You are charged with abandoning a mission given to you by Edo Bugei Academy.
You are charged with possibly trying to instigate a war between two clans.
You are charged with possible betrayal of the Kuki clan."


Next he looked at Kitsu.
"Momochi Kitsu, Clanless.
You are charged with unwilling and willing aid in a coup against the Shogunate.
You are charged with attacking a city of Japan.
You are charged with failure to complete your mission as ordered.
You are charged with failure to protect a noble lord.
You are charged with possibly attacking samurai above your station.
You are charged with possibly killing a lord appointed by the Shogun.
You are charged with possible theft of government vehicles.
You are charged with possible murder of samurai above your station.
You are charged with possible insitement of a riot.
You are charged with possibly trying to instigate a war between two clans.
"


Then finally he looked at Makoto.
"Makoto, Shiyo of the Maeda Clan.
You are charged with unwilling and willing aid in a coup against the Shogunate.
You are charged with attacking a city of Japan.
You are charged with failure to complete your mission as ordered.
You are charged with failure to protect a noble lord.
You are charged with possibly attacking samurai above your station.
You are charged with possibly killing a lord appointed by the Shogun.
You are charged with possible theft of government vehicles.
You are charged with possible murder of samurai above your station.
You are charged with possible insitement of a riot.
You are charged with possibly trying to instigate a war between two clans.
You are charged with possible betrayal of the Maeda clan."


With that the man sighed and rolled up his scrolls before looking at the three.
"If you have any questions about your charges I can answer them now. To be clear you three may or may not have assisted in the direct murder of a sitting clan lord, allowing another clan, The Hojo, to claim control of a province. You also may have killed the sitting lord without realizing the Hojo would take control. A court appointed lawyers will be in to speak with you shortly before your interrogation. These charges are serious and could result in execution." he said the words with no real feeling towards the fate of the three in front of him. It seemed as though this was a job he was use to doing.
"Your relics have been stripped from you, as well as your weapons. Your dorm rooms have been searched. You are, however, allowed to wear the clothing you came in." he finished and looked at the three.
"Anything you say or ask now will be added to a folder. You may choose not to say or ask anything at this time.
