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, 7/10/2017 A blood red summer has come. As the Edo Bugei students finish facing off with the ikko forces all across the nation a massive steel ship floats towards Edo Harbor. The final battle between the Ikko Ikki rebels and the Edo Bugei students is about to begin. The lingering question now, just how much of Edo will be left standing once the battle ends?

Aoyama, Osore of the Aoyama Clan



• 15, Male
• HOMETOWN, PROVINCE
• SCHOOL YEAR
• Political Strategist
• Host Club
• Doing fortune telling (hobby)
APPEARANCE

HAIR: Black, but shaved
EYES: White due to congenital blindness, usually not seen.
HEIGHT: 5' 5"
BODY TYPE: Very good looking appearance-wise, though keeps his eyes closed almost all the time. Very thin, not a lot of body mass.
STYLE: Depending on the occasion, Osore has three outfits, two similar in color scheme, but varied in how lavish they are. His day to day outfit is a purple cloak that covers his face, as well as white, tattered pants and no shoes. He carries a simple dark ironwood staff to help him get around as an aid to help his blindness. His more formal attire dresses him in a cloak made of several layers of expensive fabric, all shades of purple, that includes embroidered symbols and gold tassels. He carries a 'dressy' cane that is made of a sanded and polished Ironwood branch, it has several bands of red resin embossed on the top half of the staff, and a handle forged of iron wrapped around and covered with studded resins of different colors. The cost of this outfit ranges into the tens of thousands of ryo, but is suited for court wear to be seen next to even the highest officials. His third outfit is a dark tan/green leather. It covers his whole body and leaves no flesh to be seen. This outfit is used very rarely, but are for combat missions. Durring these times he carries his simple ironwood staff.
OTHER: No matter what outfit he wears, he always carries basic fortune telling items such as tarot cards.
TRAITS

Osore is a loyal type of person who stands by the government strongly, though he considers himself too good for commoner activities such as combat. He uses his abilities to avoid combat on a large scale by convincing the people that they are depressed, fearful, or some other emotion. He believes whole heatedly that his relic abilities are not caused by a relic, but by his own divine abilities given to him by the Gods. This causes him to have a high opinion of himself.


STRENGTHS: Very good control over his own emotions. Has a 'deep connection to the spiritual world', claiming to see spirits and demons, and claims to be able to summon them. This gives him confidence in his relic abilities.
WEAKNESSES: Blind since birth, low physical strength. Enormous ego.
LIKES: Enjoys places that normally cause people to be uncomfortable such as graveyards and abandoned shrines. Places like these he claims brings him closer to the spirit world.
DISLIKES: Doesn't strongly dislike anything in particular.
AMBITIONS: To continue the practice of Onmyodo and to promote it's use for political advisement. Onmyodo had been absorbed into Shinto, and was eventually banned by an Emporer, but a large portion of it remained in a secret book.
COMBAT



WEAPON: Wooden Staff made of Ironwood (has two of them)
RELIC: An old leather grimoire with very old pages describing Onmyodo rituals, demons, spirits, and divination techniques. Written by Yoshida, Kanetomo
RELIC OWNER: Yoshida, Kanetomo
OWNER HISTORY: Born 1435, died 1511. Was a Japanese Shinto priest of the Sengoku period. He was a seminal figure in the evolution of a coherent descriptive and interpretive schema of Shinto ritual and mythology. Combined Onmyodo into Shinto to create a more diverse religion.
ACTIVATED ABILITY 1: Minor Illusion - Can cause an illusion that isn't as grand as his awakened ability. These can produce sights, smells, sounds, and feelings (both physical and emotional).
ACTIVATED ABILITY 2: Scythe Blade - Produces a scythe style blade at the end of a staff.
LOCKED ACTIVATED ABILITY 3:
PASSIVE 1: Third Eye - A red eye made of pure energy is able to be opened. It rests in the middle of is forehead, and cannot be seen if closed. This grants Osore a few 'spiritual' powers.
Several different colored 'spirit flames' follow him around. They keep him from running into walls and help him avoid very obvious by pushing against him. They are solid, soft, and cold to the touch, and can be destroyed, but reform a few posts later near Osore. They emit strange whisper sounds, and when idol they tend to be curious like goldfish. They float around towards people, but quickly retreat if reached towards.
LOCKED PASSIVE 2: Levitation- Allows him to levitate, but only above solid ground, and only ~2 feet above the ground (Just think if you pulled your legs up into a cross-legged sitting position). If he could walk there, he could levitate there instead. He may also levitate his relic.
LOCKED AWAKENED MODE COLOR: None.
LOCKED
AWAKENED ATTACK: Causes a VERY realistic illusion to any targets. This illusion can be almost anything and is up to the Osore as to what truly occurs. Note that this is an illusion and cannot cause REAL physical harm, though the person can feel pain.
HISTORY


FAMILY:
• Father
• Mother

BACKGROUND: Osore grew up in a secure, wealthy family who owns a well known graveyard in Edo. His father, head priest of the graveyard, often had Osore accompany him during his work, taking care of the graveyard, the shrine, or doing ceremonies for the recently deceased. Though blind, Osore was intent on going out and about by himself, and exploring the graveyard, seeming to be happiest when he was among the silent tombs and rocks. One evening as he was walking down a trail in the graveyard, he heard whispering near the storage of his family's house. No one should have been around the area, so Osore decided to go and check it out.

The door to the very old shed was open, and the smell of a musty basement was wafting out of it. He would carefully place his staff through the doorway to make sure the area was clear, and he slowly tapped out a safe path to enter. The whispers were louder, and Osore announced his presence. "This is the storehouse of the Aoyama Graveyard. As a member of the family, I demand you leave this storage area!" Everything was quiet. He felt as though it may have been a restless spirit or random intruder who was simply looking for something to steal, and that they had left so he turned to leave.

Behind him the noise of something sliding, some strange whispers, and then a loud thump of leather on stone. Osore jumped slightly before turning around and tapping excitedly with his cane. It soon thumped into the side of the book. His relic. A grimoire written long ago about a section of Shinto religion that dealt with spirits, demons, and divination. Osore carefully touched the book to identify it, finding that it had old pages and obviously old leather binding. There were textures on the book that he couldn't identify for the moment, so he picked it up and brought it back with him to his father.

Over the next few years, his powers manifested from the relic. Little by little, and his father read to him from the book when they had time, and Osore memorized every line, learning how the book explained spirits and how the human mind worked compared to the way science explained it. Osore toyed with his new abilities, and his family eventually understood what exactly was going on. Just as they did, a representative of the school arrived, and sat the three of them down to tell them that Osore was a special person who was required to attend a special school that wasn't far away. The representative asked Osore what his interests were, and after the stories and instructions he heard from the book, he realized that he was supposed to be seated next to the Shogun himself as a line of defense and advisor. Thus his journey to becoming a political adviser began.
