Ever since the beginning, humans, gods, demons and many other species have roamed this planet. They come in many shapes and sizes, and have many different capabilities, physical or magical. However, some humans are oblivious to other sentient beings present on this world. Those who are, however, either work with or against these different-species beings. That has been the way since ancient times, especially so for magic aristocrats.
A family of these magic aristocrats, the Stiltons, have been analysing, researching and befriending them, particularly by familiar contracting. In order to utilise this knowledge well, the family head at that time, Charlotte Stilton, set up The Guild, an organisation exclusive to members of the Stilton bloodline alone. The Guild was set up as one of the agents to maintain balance between evil and holy, slaying the demonic and aiding the good, and had always worked alone, that was, until...
The Guild has faced many threats recently, the most prominent one being the Black Serpent Clan, led by the legendary demonic snake of Shinto mythology - Yamata-no-Orochi. Initially underestimated by The Guild as a simpleton and fool whose eight brains were dimmer than one, the Yamata-no-Orochi has proven itself to be a great threat with great charisma over his followers, humans, demons and gods alike.
The current head of the Stiltons, Alexis Stilton II, now ponders about the situation, and fears that the Yamata-no-Orochi may eventually overpower The Guild, the only obstacle in his way, and move on to devouring the world. This gave him no choice - he had to activate the last resort.
As a start of his plans, he had invited a magic users of various species and varying backgrounds to the primary Headquarters of The Guild, located in Tokyo, hoping that they will join the Stiltons in their quest to stop the Yamata-no-Orochi in his tracks.
With that, a new journey is about to commence.

Important NPCs and terms Alexis Stilton II - The current family head of the Stiltons and leader of the guild. He will often brief the guild on important missions and such. Some say that his power levels gods, although no one has actually seen him in action. Yamata-no-Orochi - The leader of the Black Serpent Clan and the main antagonist of the story. He has great evil within him, and loves devouring humans. He is extremely hard to destroy, for now... Human - This species type has no weaknesses or strengths to the other three species types. Apart from humans, familiar spirits who are powerless before the contract, in other words regular animals, fall under this. Holy Being - This species type is generally depicted as gods, good spirits, elemental spirits and such. Generally weak against Demons. Examples include Undines, Angels and Gods. Demon - This species type is depicted as demons, ranging from goblins to succubi and Astaroth. Generally weak against Devil Relics. Examples include vampires, ghosts, Jack O'Lanterns and even Yamata-no-Orochi himself. Evil gods who have commited sins, as well as most Lovecraftian Horrors fall here too. Devil Relic - Inanimate objects that have gained sentience and a soul through varying reasons, ranging from living over hundreds of years to simply gaining them through enchantment. Generally weak against Holy Beings. They range from simple tools to weapons and machinery. Tsukumogami are included in these. Sealstones - Gem-like objects about the size of a baseball. Today, The Guild isn't fond of slaying, so they use Sealstones, capable of sealing heavily weakened beings, except Human Type beings or familiars. There are three types - Godsealer, Demonsealer and Deanimator. Go figure which seals what kind. Familiar - A familiar spirit aids a magician in quests and possibly everyday life. They come in all shapes, sizes and species.
Ah yes, I almost missed that one.
Well, I wouldn't want any player characters to be killed. If your character is non-human, he can be sealed. Player characters, however, are allowed to break free of their sealstones, although I'd actually like the sealing of player characters to be kept at a minimum.
My WIP. Will probably finish it either today or tomorrow
Name: Skyler Targaryen Alias: N/A Gender: Male. Age: Forever 19. (About 650 years old. lol) Species Type: Demon. Species: Vampire.
Appearance: Skyler is a tall young man with a fairly muscular apperance, despite his slender figure. His hair is dark brown, and cut into a stylish, yet elegant way. His eyes are of a deep green colour, and it is not uncmomon for him to catch people staring after him. He also have pale skin, which seems paler than it really is because of his dark hair. For clothing, he usually wear something simple that does not stand out in a crowd. A dark denim jacket over a plain T-shirt, and regular jeans are the usual outfit you'll see him in. He does, however know how to formerly dress, and can be very stylish, if the occation requires so. He also wears a cursed earpiece which allows him to be out in the sun. this earpiece is shaped like a drop of blood, made out of white gold and ruby.
In his vampire state however, he appears different. His skin is even paler than it usualy is, and his eyes are black with a glowing red iris. his teeth is not the regular two tiny fangs like some regular vampires, but long sharp teeth that covers for his normal teeth. (Like this)
Personality: Skyler is a decivious character. He have little faith in humanity, as he has been stabbed in the back before. He likes social gatherings, and is a social butterfly, even though he never lets anyone get too close to him, for personal reasons. He has little respect for human lives, and can easily kill people who annoys him, or that somehow are in the way of his personal goals. He's also manipulative, and won't hesitate using people like a pair of socks, then dispose of them when he's done with them.
Despite all this, he is not entirely heartless. If you by any chance get to know him well. He can be caring towards the ones he think deserves it, and he's capable of loving, even though he strongly forces himself not to do so, as he lookes upon love as a weakness.
History: Have to first come up with something Awe- wait for it... ... ... -Some! I have an idea but... That would be looooong
Species Abilities: As a Vampire, Skyler posess superhuman strength and speed, making him a rather troublesome foe in a close combat. He also posess certain mind-manipulating abilities, and can read, create and erase memories, along with hypnosis, making his 'victims' under his command. This, however is very tiering, and he can't use the ability many times in a row.
Magic: Skyler knows basic magic, taught to him by a witch from the 17th century. It was during this time he learnt a curse to avoid Sunlight, even though it did not work on living beings, thus being the reason he cursed his earpiece. He also know a teleportation spell
Weapons: Skyler was a subject for an alchymist he knew in the 1839, who were experimenting with alchemy and magic. He wasn't any good though.. and Skyler were victim of a failed attempt of creating a new type of iron. as a result, Skyler now can do this. He fights mainly hand to hand combats, and with his speed and strength, he's not easy to take down. He does, however, flee before losing, if he knows he cannot win
Alignment: Neutral. But going to join the Black Serpent clan due to past events
Others: He looks after himself, and have difficulties with trusting people. he's quick to flee when things look grim for him

Your app looks pretty nice so far. Better post my first app before I head to sleep. Do note that all three(four if you count twins as two seperate characters) will be related to the Guild Master one way or another.
Main Name: Christina Ragnarok Stilton Alias: 'The Last Ragnarok', according to several reports and rumours mongered by mages, featuring what may or actually be her. Gender: Female Species Type: Human Species: Human(Ragnarok Family) - A member of the notable, extinct bloodline of Alchemists, the Ragnaroks. They are just famous aristocratic humans. With alchemy. Really. They are best identified with greyish skin and demonic red eyes. Age: 15 Appearance: Christina stands a 1.65 metres tall, which exceeds the tiny size of her relatives by quite a shock, probably because she isn't blood related to them. Her skin leans towards grey while remaining human skin-hued, a legacy of the Ragnaroks, and her hair a rather medium hue of brown, let loose into bangs. Her eyes are a shining demonic red that frightens people. Traditionally, Ragnaroks cover their eyes in order to hide their demonic appearance, although Christina has abandoned that minor portion of her roots in order to survive as the last Ragnarok. She has a bust of size C, and a rather tall and curvacious figure despite being only fifteen.
She is generally seen wearing a long-sleeved white dress and a pair of metallic boots(her alchemic abilities can alter these boots). Her gloves too, are metallic in appearance. She wears the Stilton family on the chest area of her dress
Underneath her dress, she has an absurdly revealing outfit literally made from chains. Her metallic boots and gloves are removed, as they are actually limiters of sorts. A rather large layer of chains covers the most suggestive part of her chest. She has some metallic short shorts with a few chains surrounding it, and a lock with a tree-shaped keyhole attached to the chains. She can be seen with metallic handcuffs, footcuffs and a similiar-looking collar. One can notice handblades on her handcuffs. Her chains surround her arms and legs in a spiral manner. History: Christina was born to the Ragnaroks, a noteworthy aristocratic family of alchemists who have achieved much. They were allies of the Stiltons till their very last day. Literally, or not so, at least.
Christina was only eight years old when this happened. Her whole bloodline was genocided by an unknown entity, anhilliated one by one. She watched them die while hiding in a corner crying. It was only then when Stilton II came to rescue her. While he did attempt to rescue others, he had failed.
This girl was without family, without anyone to look after. Even though he already had two twins, he took her in as her child.
Christina began to grow and develop. She had learnt alchemy from five, so she just needed to improve what was already there. While she does want to revive her bloodline, she also desires to repay Stilton II for saving her life that fateful day. She had proven herself to be a remarkable warrior by Stilton standards, and thus was allowed to join the Guild by Stilton II. At first, few objected because she was an 'outsider' and such, but overtime, her relatives accepted her and even considered her a valuable warrior of The Guild. Personality: You may think that her dark and gloomy past causes her to be all dark and edgy. However, you are quite wrong. Christina is a pessimistic, bubbly entity bursting with energy. She is quite childish and immature at heart, to the extent that she wishes that her older siblings, Stella and Colby, would spoil her all day. She enjoys playing pranks, just like her older siblings. This is primarily traits gained by adapting to her current family.
Like most of her extinct bloodline, she is quite a flirt. She really enjoys flirting with others, and is willing to use her adult-bodied charms to seduce the enemy. If her foes aren't into older women, she can always rely on her older siblings, whom she trusts in the most. Species Abilities: Being a human, she has enhanced willpower compared to other races. Ragnaroks also have the potential to learn the highest level alchemy, although they are rather weak in other aspects of complex magic. They have an extensive sense of smell and hearing, although they are extremely sensitive to touch. They rely on these to make up for bad depth perception and intimidating eyes. Magic: For one with the lack of formal training, Christina shows a great deal of skill in alchemy. As long as she in in physical contact with an object, she can alter substances with ease. She can easily shift an element into another element, and even turn elements into completely different compounds and vice versa! While she has such virtually unlimited matter alteration capabilities, the only thing she can't alter or alter matter into is plastic. She can actually apply these abilities to heal surface wounds.
She has claimed to be capable of creating homunculi. Despite such vast capabilities, she is unable to fulfil her wish - create a philosopher's stone. Weapons: She has magic chains which she can only use in her unsealed chain form. These chains can easily stretch to reach her opponents from far. Using her alchemic abilities, she can alter the material of her chains with ease. Handblades are attached to her chains, which she can use for far-range and melee offense alike. These chains also act as limiters of sorts. Alignment: The Guild Others: She hopes to restore her extinct bloodline once more by creating a philosopher's stone.

NAME: Jonathan Latch ALIAS: Nightkin GENDER: Male SPECIES TYPE: Human SPECIES: "Rasune" (Rabbit/Kitsune) AGE: 34
APPEARANCE: Jonathan's drastically altered appearance is on the account of him being a highly proficient and veteran witch hunter and warlock assassin, a typical result of those involved in his line of work, although not usually to Jonathan's extent. While soldiers receive scars and wounds from battle, assassins of those involved in witchcraft and sorcery tend to be hit with various hexes, curses, and spells that leave their mark in various fashions from strange appearances, warped auras, and the like. As Jonathan has put down over 300 witches and dark sorcerers, not all of them went down easy, hence the reason why Jonathan's form has been altered so many times through various transformations to the point where he used to look human, but now no longer does.
Instead, he appears to be a 6'5" anthropomorphic rabbit with black fur and very long rabbit ears that shoot upward from his head for about a foot and a half before bending down to reach as far down as his knees. Meanwhile, he has black eyes with slightly red-tinted irises. Around his ankles and wrists, there are tufts of fur that flow up his legs and arms. Meanwhile, he has long strands of fur above his eyes that arch upward. Coming out from his rear are thirteen large fox tails that are each eight feet long, leaving a lot for Jonathan to carry behind him. Over his head is a large bundle of fur that flows back down along his head and down his back. Meanwhile, on various spots of his body are white hex marks that look very similar to arcane symbols and tribal tattoos. They appear around his ankles, his upper thighs, his wrists, upper arms, on his forehead, and wrapped around the ends of each of his thirteen tails as well as his long rabbit ears. Jonathan has been hit with plenty of other curses before, but most of them were able to be undone.
Regardless of his rabbit/kitsune "Rasune" form, he is still able to wield weapons, keep his speed and agility, and move quickly without making sounds. His hearing has been drastically increased as a benefit, but his thirteen giant tails are cumbersome to work with, often get in the way, sometimes get caught in things like closing doors, and make it nearly impossible to see behind him without fully turning around.
Jonathan's only piece of clothing is his black leather belt, which carries his weapons and equipment.
HISTORY: Jonathan comes from a long line of witch hunters known as the Nightedge. His father and mother, Logan and Naomi, were part of the clan, and so was his brother Roland. Jonathan was born in the Netherlands and was trained under the wing of the Nightedge, receiving his normal education as well as being trained to assassinate those that used witchcraft to curse others. Jonathan showed exceptional skill, showing a fearless attitude while respecting the precise care and patient nature of his heritage. As a child, he learned quickly, but one of his shortcomings was his lack of concern for his own health and well-being.
Jonathan performed his first assassination when he was 16, against a relatively easy target: a young warlock that was just as old as he was, who had been laying curses upon a local farmer's livestock. Gradually, he stepped up and took on tougher and more experienced targets with his rogue-like abilities.
The first major affliction that Jonathan experienced was his attack on a difficult witch named Kanari. Jonathan had not anticipated for her cottage to be laden with booby traps and alarms. After he unintentionally triggered one, he attempted to strike down Kanari as soon as possible, but before he could, she attempted to turn him into a brown rabbit to humiliate and forever pacify the rookie assassin. Thanks to a protective charm Jonathan had been wearing, Jonathan was only partially affected and managed to finish the job. Without it, he would have ended up exactly like any normal rabbit. He was not too happy to find out there wasn't much that could be done to reverse his now anthropomorphic rabbit appearance. Regardless, he tried to settle into it as best as possible.
Many dead warlocks and witches later, Jonathan was commissioned to assassinate Xon, a black, thirteen-tailed kitsune who was probably one of the worst offenders when it came to curses. Xon had a history of poisoning entire water supplies, which would turn villagers into the same livestock they had been raising, making it impossible for their clerics to figure out who was once a villager and who had always been a cow/pig/sheep/chicken/etc. Jonathan entered a brutal battle with him, but upon killing the black kitsune with a struggled stab to the heart, Jonathan had unintentionally inherited a curse that had been plaguing Xon, who Jonathan had discovered was once human himself. As Jonathan discovered, whoever killed the black kitsune would become one themselves. Ordinarily, Jonathan would have become the same black, cursed kitsune as Xon, who would have had to deal with diminishing sanity, horrendous misfortune and bad luck, and would have had to bear the extreme calamity of having to avoid the sun, or else be permanently blinded by the light. However, instead, his rabbit form had been combined with the black kitsune form, resulting in a mix of rabbit and fox, which only bore a few of the mishaps. As a result, Jonathan's luck and fortune is often negatively affected, and while he sees better at night, he can still see during the day and be relatively okay. It took a lot of clerical healing to prevent and undo most of the ill effects, but not everything could be undone. The black rabbit and thirteen tailed kitsune combination was never coming off. And many others think he's jinxed because of it.
Jonathan's white hex markings came from Jakal'Vek, a senior warlock that laid a permanent curse called the Dark Haunting on Jonathan before Jonathan landed a killing blow on him. Because of the Dark Haunting curse, Jonathan is now surrounded by paranormal activity. Whenever he has to fight someone, it seems as though a dark, mysterious stranger gives his enemy an edge or some kind of aid against Jonathan. Unfortunately, Nightedge's clerics have been unable to remedy the Dark Haunting curse as its power was pretty out of the league.
As of now, Jonathan has been so transformed and afflicted with so many hexes that those kinds of curses and spells no longer work on him. Already, he's a rabbit/kitsune humanoid that exists only because of freak chance, and he's hit his limit as far as magical affliction can possibly go. There simply isn't any more room for another curse or affliction to be laid on, which is an advantage for him. However, most spells that aren't curse/enchantment/charm related will still work, such as elemental magic, illusions, and summons. Some of his suppressed hexes and curses still flare up every now and then, but for the most part, they've been contained. However, the fact he's been up against pretty powerful, life-altering magic is incredibly obvious. It is very easy for anyone to believe he was never human a day in his life, and as a result, he's not usually treated like one, especially by strangers.
He was called by Alexis Stilton II to deal with Yamata-no-Orochi and his cohorts. Jonathan's veteran abilities in using subtlety, stealth, and combat did not go ignored. Not to mention he possesses incredible hearing, silent running, and jumping abilities like no other assassin on Earth. Also, Jonathan's resistance to curses, enchantments, charms, and hexes was something that didn't go ignored either, nor has his ability to blend into the night. However, to be a part of the Guild, they have wanted him to resort to using Sealstones instead of lethal force. But, that doesn't mean he's not going to injure and cripple his opposition first...
PERSONALITY: Naturally, Jonathan is fearless, and doesn't consider consequences. He much rather prefers to work alone than try to communicate ideas, actions, and plans with other people. In the past, Jonathan has tried to work with others, only to have miscommunications arise. That too, resulted in botched assassinations, foiled diversions, and a few curses and hexes being thrown around. Jonathan had one plucky rookie get turned into an oak tree while another was reduced to a quivering madman. Whenever possible, he'd rather not risk seeing that kind of thing again. He still feels guilty about not being able to prevent it and wishes he could do something to help them. Case in point, he would hate for one of his bad choices to result in someone else's misfortune.
Meanwhile, he still has a good heart, despite being an assassin and having been stricken with a ridiculous amount of curses and hexes (almost all witch-hunters don't hit their absolute limit like he has). He has a good sense of humor and is an extremely good team player, perhaps too much so. He absolutely hates seeing his allies get hurt, and is very prone to avenge those that are struck down. Moreover, he hates evil and mocks it for being counterproductive and likely to turn on itself. In fact, he finds everlasting comedy when he sees evil turning on evil, especially if he incited it by finding ways for the priorities of his adversaries to conflict (such as unwillingness to share money, fame, or power, or question the loyalty and trustworthiness of their comrades).
When performing an assassination, he can be quiet and very patient, waiting hours, sometimes days, for the right moment to strike while being calculating rather than hasty or trigger-happy. He dislikes being rushed and he dislikes deadlines and other pushes to pick up the pace when he feels it's not necessary. He knows how to handle himself in a fight, but he'd rather not have it get to that point. In casual settings, Jonathan is a contemplative thinker who has intricate plans that others would have trouble trying to grasp if he tried to share them. He prefers to work alone, and often says to anyone who comes along that they need to look after their own hide. Still, if something happens to them, he does feel guilt regardless and tries to watch over them anyway. He just hates that feeling of knowing if only he did things differently, he could have saved someone.
Jonathan doesn't really think much of his rabbit/kitsune combination, even though there are plenty that tease him about looking soft, cute, and plushy. Regardless, he doesn't spend time regretting the changes or reminiscing about his days as a human. He intends more on using what he's been given to his advantage and puts his new features to work for him rather than weigh him down.
SPECIES ABILITIES: Jonathan is essentially the only rabbit/kitsune anthropomorphic humanoid in existence, so he really doesn't have a species name, though some call it the "Rasune."
Like a rabbit, Jonathan can run and move fast and silently, jump as high as three hundred feet into the air and land softly without a scratch and without making much noise. He also has an incredibly good sense of smell in addition to having extremely good vision and the ability to see in the dark as well as blend into the night. Meanwhile, his sense of hearing is absolutely incredible and because of it, he can hear anyone and anything coming from miles away. Warlocks and witches have tried to turn invisible on him to get an edge in combat, but their attempts were useless from his ability to hear their footsteps and breathing and pinpoint exactly where they were. In busy places with lots of noise, it does force Jonathan to have to concentrate on particular sounds and words. In addition to these abilities, if Jonathan spreads his thirteen tails in a fan like formation and holds out his large rabbit ears, it does allow him to glide through the air as if riding a hang-glider.
Jonathan also can't be afflicted by any magical hexes, transformations, charms, or curses. He's already hit his limit and he already exists as a creature created entirely by powerful magic and witchcraft that exceeds some of the most powerful magic already out there. So trying to affect it and alter it would be like trying to fight water with water. Any such alteration spell would simply splash right off of him and not stick.
Jonathan's "Rasune" disadvantages include the Dark Haunting curse, a curse that anyone with knowledge of curses can easily identify on Jonathan from the white markings on his ankles, thighs, wrists, forehead, ears, and on each of his thirteen tails. They'll know they're in for a helping hand if they fight Jonathan. Anyone fighting him, regardless of their ability to identify the curse or not, may get the advantage of finding a mysterious stranger or shadow helping them in various ways, such as creating diversions, causing bad luck for Jonathan, forcing Jonathan to deal with environmental hazards, or other various ways of assistance. This enigmatic shadow cannot be hurt or killed, and its words can only be heard by those fighting him, though its statements are brief, very to the point, and will only speak about the fight, not about anything else. Sometimes the stranger takes different forms, but will always appear to be a dark, shadowy figure. To Jonathan, the Dark Haunting curse is serious, chronic bad luck.
Jonathan also has trouble looking behind him and moving backward, thanks to his giant thirteen tails that often seem to get in the way and can get easily stepped on or cause him to trip if he tries to step back without completely turning around (though he would at least have a nice, soft landing!). Because of the tails, he is also very easy to track in the wilderness, as the tails brush against everything and create easy to trace disturbances in the grass, shrubs, and ground. The tails can also be caught in places such as closing doors and hatches, and make simple tasks such as sitting down to drive a vehicle or move around in tight spaces a serious challenge.
Jonathan's strong sense of hearing is a good thing... and a bad thing. Extremely loud noises are painful to him. Jonathan won't ever go permanently deaf from noise-related attacks, but they still hurt and will cause his ears to ring. Jonathan is also sensitive to the light, and definitely doesn't like staring into the sun directly, or any other source of bright light. Note that even if he shuts his eyes from blinding attacks, he can still use his ears to find his bearings and fight. But fighting him with both light and noise simultaneously is a real thorn in his side.
MAGIC: Even witch-hunters and warlock assassins need to use a little magic to keep up with the competition. At the forefront, these kinds of assassins are extremely skilled and knowledgeable regarding poisons that can do a variety of effects from the lethal, the strange, and even the practical joke. However, most poisons take time to work, and there are many antidotes out there. There are a few poison-based spells that Jonathan knows as well that conjure up poison without chemicals.
Thanks to the black kitsune form, Jonathan has access to some rather dark magic, but he refuses to use it, as it goes entirely against what the Nightedge believe. Using dark magic would essentially turn him into exactly what the Nightedge is trying to put down. Also, according to the curse of the black kitsune, using such magic would drive him further and further into madness. He doesn't even see it as a last resort.
WEAPONS: Jonathan uses a pair of twin daggers that have razor-sharp blades that are curved and extend for about a foot and a half, making them a bit more like short swords rather than knives. They're nothing fancy and don't have any gems or are made from valuable metals, but they are made to pierce through magical defenses, unlike ordinary knives. In addition, Jonathan also has a composite bow and a quiver of arrows. Each of these arrows are able to be slathered with poison and carry it into their target as they speed through the air.
Jonathan can use most weapons he finds laying around, just in case he is disarmed or needs an alternative weapon. He prefers slashing weapons over heavy, blunt weapons, however. He dislikes guns a lot, though, especially from the massive amount of NOISE they make. Not only do they blow his silent cover, but they hurt his sensitive ears. And their recoil is aggravating to him as well.
ALIGNMENT: The Guild OTHERS: Jonathan hates getting wet and stepping into water or swimming. Once he's wet, it doesn't matter anymore, but that initial jump into water or pouring rain is always met with reluctance, as it takes him hours to get dry again.
Species: Nightmare Human (Started out as an ordinary human, was altered by a number of dubious medical procedures.)
Appearance: In her ordinary human form, Taylor isn’t exactly tall with her 5’6’’ and her build isn’t imposing either. She has long pink hair, which is only partially tamed by a bandage wrapped around her forehead. The bandage itself was originally white, but is steadily becoming a darker and darker shade of grey. It no longer serves its primary purpose of stopping the bleeding, but is instead there mostly to hide the scars and other remains of various twisted experiments. The eyes peering from behind the pink curtain of hair are brown and relatively big. Conversely, her mouth and nose are smaller than average. She wears a tan cotton tunic with brown belt and knee-long black tight shorts. As for footwear, she prefers light sneakers. She has numerous scars and burns all over her body.
She can use her dark powers to transform into a more powerful demonic form she calls Nightmare Mode. By doing that she grows by five inches and gets a much more muscular structure. Her skin turns brown, her hair becomes black and her eyes change to yellow. She also grows several outgrowths from her head, vaguely resembling horns.
History: Taylor’s childhood was pretty much average. She was the only child in a middle class family. Her life consisted mostly of the school – TV – hanging out with friends routine. She seemed destined for a completely unremarkable life.
One day, when she was 14, all that changed. There was some strange incident at her home, in which her parents, while she barely survived. She was in a coma for 15 months and hospitalized for further six. There are no records or explanations what actually happened on that fateful day, and all Taylor remembers is clouds of strange green smoke and various cries for help. One of those cries had a more significant impact on her future: “Run! The Guild…they are here…” Based on that she concluded The Guild was responsible for the death of her family and swore to herself she would make them pay, whoever they were. She abandoned the name Taylor Young and became Tayuya. This was both practical and symbolic; she didn’t want The Guild to know she survived the incident, but on the other hand, the sweet, innocent Taylor Young was a thing of the past. Tayuya was a merciless, emotionless avenger determined to destroy The Guild. But in order to do that she needed to get stronger.
She managed to get in contact with some shady characters and one of the witches agreed to teach her the basics of magic. Unfortunately, Tayuya had virtually no talent for magic and made no progress. All she got out of the training was some information on how to defend against magic users. She proceeded with her quest for power by looking for alternative methods. Those methods usually included some physical alteration of her body. The results were mixed; sometimes she was lucky to survive, some took away her already acquired powers, but in rare cases Tayuya got the results she wanted. Over the years, she among other things grew wings, improved her senses, gained the ability to stand on any surface, even liquids, no matter the slope, lost her wings, became able to breathe underwater , and most importantly awakened the Nightmare Mode. Through it, she finally got the access to some sort of magic, which was one of her main goals all along.
When she heard of Yamata-no-Orochi and its plan to destroy The Guild she immediately sought him out and joined his Black Serpent Clan. Yamata-no-Orochi also gave her the two weapons she uses – the demonic flute and the long knife.
Personality: Originally, Taylor wasn’t a lot different from other young girls, lively and playful. But once she was orphaned, her personality drastically changed - she became obsessed with revenge. To her Taylor Young is only a memory; she became Tayuya a violent and sadistic creature. Her range of emotions is very limited: it goes from irritation to rage, the closest she ever comes to enjoyment is right after killing someone. Tayuya is obsessed with power; she is always looking for new ways to increase her strength and is prepared to do anything to obtain it.
She is extremely confident in her abilities, even over-confident. She is bossy and almost enjoys ordering others around. She is also very arrogant and insulting to others. She can harbour resentment for years, but usually doesn’t have to as she usually kills the offenders much sooner than that. She is impulsive and volatile; consequently she isn’t good at strategizing. She expects everyone to obey her wishes and demands, if she doesn’t get what she wants, she immediately resorts to violence.
Species Abilities: Tayuya is primarily a human, so even after all the modifications to her body she still possesses most of their characteristics. While in human form, Tayuya is relatively weak, physically and magically. Her magical powers are very limited; all she can do is cast weak illusions to confuse the enemy. She can still rely on her hypnotizing flute, but it takes her longer to achieve full control over others. When playing on her flute, she can determine the location of everything near her, much like bats can. She still has some of her basic abilities: she can stand on any surface and breathe underwater.
In Nightmare Mode, Tayuya is stronger, faster and more agile than in her human form. The emphasis is on her speed and agility which are increased to superhuman levels. Along with that, she also gets a boost in endurance and magical powers; it’s only in this for that she can summon serpentine demons to her side.
Magic: Originally, Taylor had virtually no magical abilities. However, when became obsessed with power and created a new persona – Tayuya – she volunteered for many dark experiments through which she among other things also got some magical powers. While she still can’t use any spells that would hurt enemies directly, she is able to cast illusions. She can also summon up to three lesser serpentine demons to assist her.
Weapons: Tayuya’s main tool is the demonic flute she can use to hypnotize people. It usually takes her about 30 seconds of melody to reach full control over them. She is able to sustain the hypnosis for as long as the other person can hear the melody. Its sound is much stronger than a normal flute and can in perfect conditions be heard to human ear even at more than 500 yards away, though its normal range in average noise is about 100 yards.
Aside from the flute, she also uses a slightly curved long knife. Its blade is 18 inches long and made of stainless steel, while the handle is made from human femur and painted pitch-black.
Alignment: Black Serpent Clan
Others: Because of all the changes done to her body, Tayuya has a very particular diet to get exactly the right balance of what her body needs.
Well, if you don't think I'm a nosy bastard, why did you write that in your diary?
Nythe accepted. I love this app. Hmm... I wonder what the real story is...
Ah well, time for the Stilton Twins. They practically grew up together, and are pretty weak alone, so I thought a shared app would do the trick.
Main Name: Alexis Cobalt Stilton III and Stella Paris Stilton Alias: The Stilton Twins. First twin is often called 'Colby', though. Gender: Male and Female respectively, although Colby looks, acts and dresses female. Species Type: Human Species: Mad Alice Unit/Stiltonian Human - The Mad Alice Units are a race of sentient machines that owe their existence not only to magic, but magic technology. While they are not Devil Relics, they have a great deal of sentience and human-like traits that can easily fool people into believing that they are humans and not Androids.
Stiltonians are basically any being that has directly or indirectly descended from the Stiltons, unique enough to split into their own species. They can be any species, but they have unique traits. They do not acquire a gender until the end of their toddler stage, and are infertile until they reach 25 years(depends on species, all age numbers apply to humans). They have an absurdly slow growth rate, to the extent that puberty last from 15-years old to 60-years old, and only then will the Stiltonian begin to look like an early, 18-year old adult. They age very slow, although their intelligence is slightly greater than average humans. Some may live up to a few hundred years or more! They can breed with succubi and incubi, who are often depicted as infertile. Age: Both 17. Appearance:
Colby Stilton has ivory skin and a cyan-hued hime-cut. His feminine, curvacious figure is 1.4 metres tall. Surprisingly, despite his true gender, he has a cup size of A, and a slightly larger butt. His right eye is purple, and his left is orange. Both of them look soulless and pupil-less. His skin is made from some unique, smooth plastic that has been made to resemble human skin. Despite being machine, he looks completely human.
Colby wears a pure white gothic Lolita dress, along with a mini tophat worn on his head. He also wears a pair of ribbon-decorated white shoes, along with a pair of gloves. His outfit is adorned with black ribbons, including a big one at the back along his waistline. He can often be seen holding a white umbrella. His dress is knee length and is rather frilly underneath. His sleeves are quite long, reaching to his wrist.
Description:Stella is 1.4 metres tall, like her twin brother. Her curvacious figure is of a B-cup, which is probably the most prominent physicaly difference between her and her twin brother. Her right eye is orange, and her left purple. Both her eyes appear soulless. Cyan-hued hair sits on her fair-skinned head, tied into twintails that reach her waist, although the fringe resembles a hime-cut. Her skin is grafted from some odd plastic that is designed to resemble human skin.
Stella wears a black gothic Lolita dress, along with a mini tophat worn on her head. She also wears a pair of ribbon-decorated black shoes, along with a pair of gloves. Her outfit is adorned with white ribbons, including a big one at the back along her waistline. She can often be seen holding a black umbrella. Her dress is rather frilly underneath. Her sleeves are rather long, reaching to her wrists. She has an orange-wristed watch on her right hand. History: Stilton II was once evil, although he managed to keep it from his family all this while, and has long stopped his evil deeds. During those days, he was a bounty hunter who hunted for myths and legends, from the Hare of Inaba and Slenderman to the Succubus Lilith and the Nyarlathotep.
In order to make his work easier, he decided to invent the Mad Alice Units, starting with the Prototype he would soon call Stella, Mad Alice Unit 00. He began to build some more, ten more, before making Mad Alice Unit Infinity, who would later be known as Colby. These were to be used as weapons of destruction and war. He made these machines by reverse-engineering machines stolen from Rl'yeh.
After a while, Stilton II reflected on his actions, and realised that it was pointless to keep this up anymore. With that, he proceeded to install sentience chips into Mad Alice Units 00 and Infinity, while releasing the other 10 into a city hidden from others, made by him. Apart from taking the two in as his twin children, he proceeded to use his weapons of destruction for good. Personality: Both the twins are mischievious at heart, and enjoy playing practical jokes on unwary passers-by. They are willing to use their mischief when fighting foes. They enjoy working as twins to complete tasks, and are not very used to working with large groups. However, they will allow others to join in the fun in their combination attacks, antics and whatnot.
They are a hillarious pair whom one may see to be useful for comic relief. Actually, they are both rather hardworking, spending time in their personal library to read up on mythology, technology and weaponry of the past, present and future. They are highly knowledgeable, Species Abilities: Mad Alice Units are fully mechanical, although they are very human, and can even reproduce. Their mechanical biology allows them to be resistant to many things that affect organic beings, such as diseases. They are practically impossible to hack, although heavy blows can do the trick. They can convert practically any energy they consume into mana, which they run on.
Stiltonians share an odd ability - Androgynous Blood. It allows them to use gender-discriminating tools and spells, but such things will always affect them as well, if the opposing attack affects only one gender.
All Stiltonians have access to their own pocket dimension. They can enter it, but only skilled ones can get out.
Stiltonian Twins share a certain link, where they can practically think in synch. Things will go pretty haywire if they are split. Twins are pretty weak alone, literally, but as a duo, they are a force to be reckoned with. Magic: The Stilton Twins use their pocket dimension to their full potential. Not only do they use it to store random stuff like books and stuff, they can also literally consume materials(except plastic) to store inside their pocket dimension. Colby is capable of imagining, creating and even controlling advanced technology from these materials, while Stella generally generates ancient weapons. They can not only summon these weapons from their hands or as appendages, but can only summon them from a huge, invisible portal leading to their pocket dimension, a fire their weapons at high speeds. While not common, they will run out of material in their pocket dimension, which prevents them from creating anymore weapons. The power of their weapons depends on their will.
They have an additional skill. Colby can activate 'Purple Sword', which last 3 posts and takes 1 post to recharge. It boosts speed for the twins. Stella can activate 'Orange Shield', which lasts the same time as Purple Sword and takes the same amount of time to recharge. It boosts Defense for the twins. Both skills cannot be activated at the same time.
Colby can control and fix machines, Weapons: They literally generate weapons and machinery they can think of. See above. Alignment: The Guild Others: no one knows Colby is a dude.
Familiar Name: V.I.C.K.Y(Versatile Iron Core marK Y) Age: Unknown Gender: Female Species Type: Devil Relic Species: Versatile Core - a series of spherical machines. No one knows who made them. Appearance: In her Relic form, she takes the form of a sphere, one half is orange, the other is purple. There is a blue 'Y' in the centre.
In her humanoid form, she takes the appearance of a young lady. Her cup size is between a B and C, and she has a height of 1.54 metres. Her pair of shimmering eyes are a pupilless white by default, but switch to purple or orange when Purple Sword or Orange Shield is activated. Her hair is tied in a ponytail, where the end has an accesory that resembles her relic form.
She wears a gothic lolita dress that is a mix of orange and purple. It is short-sleeved, accompanied by unmatching similiar-hued gloves and boots. History: No one knows the origins of this piece of complex machinery. All that is known was that it was previously owned by Gin Furukawa and sent by the Devil Relic Research Society for Gin Furukawa. It initially had some curse which brought it to life, although Gin finally cured it sometime.
When Vicky used to live with Gin, they would often pay a visit to Stilton II. This caused Vicky to grow closer to the main Stiltons, especially the twins. She did have feelings for Gin at one point, and even confessed to him. He simply rejected and apologised. While she understood, she was still heartbroken, and thus ran towards the main Stilton Mansion, heartbroken. She initially decided to live away from Gin for a few days, that was, until, the Stilton twins wanted her to be their shared familiar sometime in between those days. That does not mean she has given Gin up. Personality: Vicky is pretty sweet, although she doesn't like taking orders from people, apart from Gin, Colby or Stella. These are practically the only people she enjoys, and either hates or feels neutral about everyone else. She is extremely persistent in everything she does, and tries not to give up, to the annoyance of some. She dislikes obstacles, and will not hestitate to obliterate them. She is one to believe in fortune-telling, luck and all relevant stuff to that, so that she can one day impress her true love. Species Abilities: She is designed to shift into numerous weapons, thus is said to be one of the most versatile tools in the universe. She has levitation, and can split into two hemispheres. Most of her weapons are photon-based, far-ranged or melee. Magic/Abilities: She can wield her Relic Form while in humanoid form, although she prefers to be wielded by her masters. Through the familiar contract, her orange half is capable of controlling old-fashioned weapons, and her purple half capable of manipulating technology. This can be utilized in a variety of ways, such as creating mechanical bodies for her to control. Weapons: She is the weapon.
