Atlus Presidium

Post by Ragna the Saviour on Fri 06 Jul 2012, 7:31 pm

It came from the stars... and gifted us with life.

Thousands of years ago, a large, white blade smashed into the ground. No one knows where it came from. It spilled its waste upon the world and that waste is known as Ether. It fused with the planet. The grass, animals, insects, all of it became contaminated with this foreign energy. In all reality, the only ones harmed by it were those that were close to the point of impact. They mutated and transformed into the objects of their passions and dreams. Some didn't change at all. Those beings are called Seraph. They can bend the world's laws to their whim, they can shape worlds and destroy them. However, they're rare and generally unseen.

This event known as the White Calamity sprung mankind into a new age. Using the Ether that resulted from the impact of the sword, people developed technologies beyond ones wildest dreams.

As the humans studied the cause and effects of Ether. They learned more about it and how to utilize the energy to its fullest potential. The years pass. Wars happen. History will do as history does. Now, in the year 22XX, there exists a single, very powerful influence on the entirety of the world. The Atlus Presidium.

The Atlus Presidium offers countless jobs to young individuals. They can be combat officers or secretaries, the Atlus Presidium offers it all. Benefits go to the family, all that good stuff.

-------------------------

Now down to the nitty-gritty, how Ether works. Ether is a substance that exists in the air, the ground, and in the bodies of everything organic. It's an energy to be put to use.

Artificial Magic: Artifical Magic is the use of Drive Weapons/Equipment/Devices/etc. with already made 'code' to work. It serves a single function. Generators to power supplies? Artifical Magic. Drive Weapons to blow shit up? Artifical Magic.

Combat: Artifical Magic Drive Weapon (AMD Ws) can be used in conjuction with a person's natural control of Ether so.. it serves as a focus for the user. Drive Weapons come in different shapes and sizes, most are unique to the user.

Magic: The manipulation of Ether and it's contents. This is essentially the classic magic deal. Magical circles to fire off projectiles at the opponent or to heal wounds. The basics.

Ki: Ki is a much more refined form of Ether. It's not as powerful or expansive, but it's very efficient. Sacrificing variety for efficiency, Ki mostly consists of ki blasts, empowered punches and kicks, essentially turning the body into a weapon. It can be used to heal ones own wounds, however.
Spiritual Humans: Most of the time ki users aren't accepted into the AP academy based on their use of ki energy. Ether and Psychic abilities are much more versatile than that of ki. The monks, shrine maidens, etc. that practice the use of ki consider themselves separate from the Atlus Presidium.

Psychic: A strange occurence in Ether-based life forms. Instead of the Ether leaving the body, it falls inward. Overall it has positive effects. The brain, now beyond the limits of the normal human body, the mind can impose its own laws upon the world proper. (Pyrokinesis, Telekinesis, vector manipulation (lolaccelerator), etc.

Nature: This is reserved for the youkai. Naturally, since they're a spirit of the Earth, they manipulate the element/power they have control over.

Half Human/Youkai: These do exist in the world, having properties of both a youkai and a mortal human. They can have mastery over both the Natural Element they derive from their parents or use Ether as a normal human. However, the extent to which it can be used is limited.

Spiritual Energies: Exorcism slips, artifacts and what not fall under this category. Reserved for shrine maidens and the like.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Species
Humans: The typical fair. Humans are capable of using Ether, Psychic abilities, and ki. Plus tied with an Drive Weapon make them a force to be reckoned with.

  • Youkai: Nature spirits that have been around since the dawn of time. They can appear to be human, some sort of monster, animals, they have many different shapes and sizes.

  • Evolution of Humans and Youkai: Youkai feel threatened by the expanse of technology and magic. Once worshipped, now cast aside like nothing. Some feel the need to rebel against the AP and try and set things straight, others just accept the world as it is and move on.

  • Types of Youkai: There are youkai for the basic elements, fire, water, wind, Earth. Youkai for different types of animals, even objects like umbrellas. Those manifest if a spirit takes them over, however. So yes, variety is key.

  • Human/Youkai Hybrid: Beings that possess both attributes of human and youkai. They're rare, though.

  • Name: Minna Minami
    Age: Looks 17, actually 5000+
    Gender: Female
    Race: Seraph
    Appearance: "I really... really don't want to EAT THAT." (Commenting on sausage) (ALSO IGNORE ELF EARS)
    Personality: While often cold and detached due to past trauma, Minna forces herself to be sociable with other people. She's lonely, even though she puts on a strong and make-shift stoic 'front'. The illusion fails often and those close to her know what she's really all about. She's caring, loving and compassionate. She dislikes killing more than anything, but through past experience she's gotten used to it. She treats it as a final solution.
    Backstory: A Seraph woken up in the early 2000s by a boy by the name of Tomoe Minami. She grew close to the boy and his friends and they ended up dealing with the Seraph of History, Angel of Memory as a result. After that adventure, Minna grew closer to Tomoe. As she is immortal and he's only human, he died at the age of 74. Now with nothing left, Minna travels the world as a mercenary.
    Class: N/A
    Job: Mercenary
    Drive Weapon: N/A
    Ability Type: Seraph
    Ability: Super-speed, super-strength and inhuman perception and reaction time. (she can cut bullets in half with a KNIFE). Minna can cut visible Ether attacks with only a knife and her sword Kusanagi. Metal, wood, cement, the earth, etc. with her knife/sword backed up by her strength, she can slice through them with no problem. Also, Kusanagi has the ability to create wind-blades that fly through the air and attack the opponent. This is Minna's only available projectile. (Unless you count her throwing her knife).

Name: Briallen Bronwyn

Age: 16

Gender: Female

Race: Human

Appearance: "What's our orders, Leanne?"

Personality: Briallen is calm, collected, and analytical to the point of almost seeming robotic. She is capable of emotion and does feel them often, however her training forced her to learn to never show them, especially when she's on a mission. While she does not hate ether or it's users, she's been programmed to believe it is the root of evil in this world and must be purged from existence. This combined with her training makes her very belligerent towards ether users, though she's not quite as trigger happy as most of her friends. Not to say she won't kill an ether user, if she's given the orders, she'll kill you without an ounce of remorse.

Backstory: Briallen comes from a self sustaining community of cultist who oppose ether and it's users. This cult has been around for centuries and instead of becoming more accepting, their views on ether became more and more extreme as the years passed by. Soon the whole of this isolated community believed ether to be the source of all that is wrong. That it was an evil energy and would bring man to it's downfall. This view was hammered into the heads of their young and then they hammered it into their children. It was a nonstop cycle of hate that had nothing to stop it from continuing.

The cult was and still is hidden away in secret. Very few know where to find it, outside of the residents of course. Because of this, outsiders are usually killed on sight if they venture too close to their territory. As for leaving? Impossible. Deserters were considered traitors to their cause and also killed. No one had ever escaped before, well... except for Briallen's brother. Assuming, he did survive that fall. She didn't know. Her parents refused to talk about it. All she knew was that his body was never recovered. Now she's the last of her parent's pride and high expectations are thrown at her constantly. Nothing but perfection is expected of her, and sometimes it makes her wonder if maybe she should do what her brother had.

Class: Assassin

Job: Soldier/Cultist

Drive Weapon: N/A

Ability Type: N/A

Ability: Like all children of their organization, her body has been pushed beyond their physical limitations. She was one of the lucky children to survive the intense physical strain they put on their young to make them the best possible fighters without the use of ether. She's fast, physically fit, capable of popping her joints out to squeeze into tight places, and has been trained to use various firearms and bladed tools.

Name: Casimiro Broderick

Age: Appears 14, really over 5000 years old

Gender: Male

Race: Seraph

Appearance: Ignore the shuriken.

Personality: Always seems like he has his head in the clouds. He always looks like he's totally spaced the fuck out, and usually, he is. But he has a generally chill outlook on life, and is pleasant enough to be around. But he is absolutely stubborn as a mule. He will vehemently deny anything that he doesn't think fits within his world view, and there's no persuading him. He's a master at avoiding thinking about or facing bad things, even when it's not healthy.

Backstory: Casimiro is a very mismatched individual. His name is one part Spanish and one part Irish, his clothes are obviously Japanese, his eyes are two different colors, and both lack pupils. His hair is blue, and so is his tongue. But point any of this out to him, and he's likely not to understand the problem, or outright avoid your question. Truth is, Casimiro is a Seraph who is trying to be human. His true identity is that of the Seraph of Denial, and his true age is over five thousand years old. Casimiro led a very painful childhood, first growing up in poverty with parents struggling to take care of him, parents who would later die from malnutrition in the slums after giving their meager scraps to feed him. After a long time on his own in the streets, Casimiro was found by a passing monk, and brought to a local shrine to be raised. There, Casimiro felt like he'd found a family again, and gradually grew to enjoy it there, accepting his parent's death. Then the White Calamity happened, an event which, directly or not, led to the utter annihilation of the shrine, and everyone in it. Everyone but Casimiro. But losing everybody twice, to have nothing again... that was something Casimiro wouldn't accept. So he denied it. Denied the shrine had burned down. Denied that he had been the only survivor. Denied his parents were dead. So when he began changing into a Seraph as a result of the event, he denied that too. His denial become the embodiment of his new life, and as Seraph of Denial, he was granted the ability to deny his changing world, and forever live like he thought he should. For centuries, he's been living under the false impression that he's human, his true nature only revealing itself in times of great duress, or when it becomes necessary to resuscitate a body that is being forced to be human. Each time it does though, he changes a little more into a Seraph. With each death, more strange changes overcome his body. So far, one eye has changed colors, his pupils have disappeared, his skin has grown pale, and his hair blue, and his tongue is now pointed and blue. With each new change, his true nature becomes harder for him to deny, as something within tells him this is not what he should be. Eventually, this paradox will negate his abilities, and his true nature as the Seraph of Denial will awaken. In essence, he is a Seraph dreaming of becoming a man. And he's about to wake up.

Class: Fighter

Job: Monk

Drive Weapon: N/A

Ability Type: Ki/???

Abilities: Trained as a monk while he was still human, Casimiro is a skilled Ki-user. He's not a genius, but he's good at it, due to accumulated life-times of practice as opposed to talent (unknown to him). Casimiro's true abilities manifest as the Seraph of Denial, which effectively prevents him from realizing his own true nature by denying reality, effectively overturning what is real. This ability, while extremely powerful, is limited use, and can only do one thing at a time. And ever since he received it, it has been working to deny his condition as a Seraph, allowing him to live normally and maintain an illusion of humanity. However, when he dies, or faces a situation where all other mental defenses are lowered, Casimiro temporarily becomes what he's supposed to be, and effectively cancels out death, or whatever is causing him such great distress. He'll revive in the case of death with absolutely no memories of what happened, like an amnesiac, and he'll appear in the same, if slightly changed body wondering what the fuck's going on.

Name: Leanne Derwin

Age: 19

Gender: Female

Race: Human

Appearance: The brunette in the photo.

Personality: Whereas Briallen emotionally suppressed to the point of being mentally straining, Leanne tends to wear her emotions on her sleeve. It doesn't help that her emotional state changes at the drop of a pin either. One minute she can seem perfectly fine, but the next she could fly off the handle and verbally or physically lash out in anger, or she could sink into a state of depression that ranges from severe to mild. She's reckless and thrill seeking, never thinking about the consequences of her actions.

Backstory: Leanne comes from the same cult organization as Briallen. While several years older than the girl, she considers her a close friend. Though, they were not always so close. There was a time when she saw Briallen as just the little sister of her boyfriend. That all changed when he disappeared. She was hit hard by depression, possibly the single worst episode she had ever inexperienced. She was convinced death was the only option and she would have done it too if it weren't for the younger girl. Suddenly, Leanne had found a new person to cling to for emotional support, someone who could balance out her instability. Even so, Briallen's brother still remains in her heart and she constantly tries to convince the girl to help her escape their home. She knows he's alive somewhere out there and she's determined to find them, but she won't dare leave without towing the sister along with her.

Class: Melee

Job: Soldier/Cultist

Drive Weapon: N/A

Ability Type: N/A

Ability: Leanne has always been crap at stealth, nor could she ever get her limbs to be as flexible as Briallen, even with her joints being popped in and out since infancy. What she lacked in those department, she tried her best to make up for them with skill in melee to mid range combat. Though, she's still considered inferior by the other cultist. Her emotional state only making it even more glaring that she's an imperfect child.
