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!

user posted image

• 16, MALE
• 1st YEAR

HAIR: Lightly wavy, dark brown, shoulder lenght.
EYES: Right eye is light blue, the left one is dark brown.
HEIGHT: 165 cm
BODY TYPE: Average / slightly Tonic.
STYLE: He'd wear everyday modern and street-like clothes, disliking, if not loathing, the common uniform for the school. He'd love to wear a full Visual attire one day, but he has yet to have the permission from his parents to own one.
OTHER: Eyes heterochromy; the knuckles of both hands are visibly scarred, the left hand has a bite scar.

He's a little jester, loving to prank occasionally girls or boys alike. However, in more serious matters, he has a good and righteous spirit. He's charismatic and cool headed when he wants, or else he's very stubborn in his way, hardly one can change his mind if he has an objective, "An unshakable person" as many teachers described him. He's quite materialistic and Atheist, but he fully respects traditions, thoughts and beliefs of everyone. He's very caring and kind to his twin sister, to the point that they hardly argue; he acts like the "big brother" of the situation in groups and when he has to protect his sister in the everyday life. He can be a jealous type. He has a strong sense of justice. Between them, he's the most inclined to be the "Occidental-Type" than his sister.

STRENGTHS: He has a good knowledge of Martial Arts, especially Karate; he's Multilingual (Japanese, English and Russian); he has a very good sight.
WEAKNESSES: He tends to be easily angered; he's hothead and stubborn, reckless and instinctive; sometimes he doesn't know when to stop.
LIKES: Japanese Rock/Metal bands (such as Dir En Grey or Moi Dix Mois), Occidental Culture in general, Summer days, training, being helpful; cold teas, refreshing stuffs.
DISLIKES: Extremists in general, short-minded people, whiny people, fake people, whoever harass his sister; waiting, unrightful actions or accusions.
AMBITIONS: Being able to be a part of the Police or some Military Special Forces in Japan.

He has no weapons nor he owns any particular powers, but he can fight pretty well. Sometimes he uses a pair of titanium knuckled gloves he bought to join the Edo Bugeshi. He's a Blue belt in Karate, soon to be ranked with the first Brown, thing he'll do after he'll be off the Academy. He'd prefer to learn some basic skills on firearms than on "foreig weapons".

• Father: Ratimir Ilyich Rybakov, Russian
• Mother: Chō Sōtan, Japanese
• Sibling: A Twin Sister, Kayoko Sotan
• NPC Friend or Mentor (Optional): None yet.

BACKGROUND: Their family line started with Sen no Sōtan(千宗旦) (1578–1658), also known as Genpaku Sōtan(元伯宗旦), who was the grandson of the famed figure in Japanese cultural history, Sen no Rikyū. He is remembered as Rikyū's third-generation successor in Kyoto. He was the son of Sen Shōan and Okame, a daughter of Rikyū, and is counted as the third generation in the three lines of the Sen family known together as the san-Senke. However, Sen no Sōtan was the owner of the precious chashaku owned by his grandfather, Namida, which it passed on from generation to generation, until it ended up in the hands of Chō Sōtan, the first born beside three other sibilings, in the end of the 20th Century.

Chō Sōtan, however, refused to continue the line of her ancestors by becoming a tea master, instead she passed that to another family member while she returned to her studies. She later met a man from Russia, Ratimir Rybakov, while being in Nagasaki, and it was almost a love at first sight. Some years later, when they were in a stable relationship and away from any problems caused by her parents mostly, she married him in March. Later on they moved their residence in Kyoto, in the Fushimi Ward, where to build their family in peace.

The twins were both born in 2002, the first one being Kayoko and some minutes later Youri.

His childhood was well spent alongside his twin sister but not much with the kids of their age due to their mixed ethnicity. Sometimes he picked actual "gang fights" against full groups of Japanese kids in the Public Schools, miracolously managing to get out from those mahyems most of the time with no serious wounds. However, that brought his parents to put him and his sister in a private school for their safety.
He later joined a Karate School in Kyoto to increase his natural talent on bare-handed combat, gaining each Obi with the highest grades and winning some tournaments against other Karate Dojos.

After the major events of the Ikko-Ikki Monks between 2015 and 2016, Youri joined the Edo Bugeshi alongside his sister. At first he and the family were against that, fearing for the naive and innocent nature of the young girl, but they later made a clear and simple compromise by letting her go with him beside, so that the two will keep to support and protect each other in this hard time for Japan.
