It is said, that in the world lies a fabled book that tells thy reader of the darkest secrets of mankind.
This book is thought to be but a myth or an old legend, but what we don't know is going to be our downfall, our Apocalypse, our….Judgment Day.

It's the modern and carefree year of 2004, A cold February day in Johto, Blackthorn city to be exact. We see a group of teenage boys walking about near the icy caves,

“ Hey Dillon, I dare you to go into the closed off cavern” A boy in a red shirt says to a another boy in a polo pointing to a small cave with boards closing it off.

“ Can't, it's closed off” Dillon frowns pointing at the boards blockading the dark cavern.

The red shirted boy smirks and with swift agility kicks the rotting boards down with a thud into the snow on the ground. Dillon smiles nervously and moves into the cavern watching his step as he goes in.

Dillon starts to see a light up ahead and starts to go faster, as if he is driven by the light. He starts to feel like he never has, the feeling is like... like... An intense sensation of happiness and power. Dillon is now going even faster not even caring he is being scratched up from the sharp ceiling and walls, he just wants the light.

That’s all that matters! Just get the light! He thinks to himself. And then he finally reaches it, and he can't see what is shedding this incredible malevolent array of light. Dillon looks down on the ground to see some moldy, ratty piece of paper, No not paper, papyrus! How old is this? He thinks to himself trying to read the sodden paper.

Hemos sellado el tomo de diablos, lo sellamos en la pared northen de este cuarto de cavernas. Una ortografía antigua y la cerradura se han asegurado que el libro se quedará no leído. Tuvimos que sellarlo aquí para el Libro de Sombras no se quemaría, esto es el mal se había extendido como Plauge y ahora es terminado.
Deje a Dios tener misericordia de nuestros desgraciados después de tal Armagedón,
Firmado, Marcus, Trinidad, Leon y Se elevó

“ It's in Spanish?” Dillon wondered to himself as he looked around the room for more to add to the paper he had found and then he saw the source of the majestic light and as if he were under a spell he shuffled slowly to the wall where the light was coming from, a wall.

Dillon saw the crack where the light came out and felt compelled to smash it, he picked up a large rock and proceeded to smash it, he picked up a large rock and proceeded to smash it up against the wall. When the wall had been broken up effectively he moved on to grabbing the blood soaked cloth covered package. He cradled the package in his arms as if he were holding a baby and started to run out of the cavern to the outside.

Dillon started to feel the power consume him as he slowed down and fell on his knees, he started to breathe heavily and smile manically.

“ It's mine... all mine” He muttered to himself holding the bloody package to his chest, he started to unravel the cloth feeling better and better until the cloth was gone and a black book was left in it's place.

Dillon tried to open the book only to be shocked, “ what in the hell?” Dillon yelled

angrily. He noticed the white lock on the book and scowled, and then a thought randomly came to him Blood acts as the key. Dillon smiled as he pulled out a small hunting knife from his pocket and started to slash at his arms, blood started to fall out of the wound and fall out on to the book.

With every drop of blood the lock started to dissolve slowly, the lock fully dissolved and Dillon picked up the book quickly ignoring the wounds on his arm. More light poured out of the book as it opened.

Dillon flipped a few pages until he came across a page with the words Capítulo un the top with the words Arcana Principal below it, Dillon sighed and started to touch the words. The word started to turn into English, it now read; Chapter one: Major Arcana.

Dillon smiled and started to read... and read... and read.

Two hours later

Dillon walked out of the cavern to see his friends looking bored, Dillon smiled as the red shirt from the beginning came up to him.

“ Where the hell you been?!” The red shirt yelled shaking Dillon.

Dillon kept his smile and swiftly threw his arm through the red shirts chest going out his back.

“ Oh nowhere..” Dillon mumbled retracting his now blood drenched arm from his old friends chest, the red shirt gasped and fell to the ground the snow starting to turn red as he died in a horrible fashion.

Dillon turned to his other friends and pulled out a majestic sword, he ran at a Mach speed cutting through his friends like butter and leaving them in pieces. Dillon ran off.

It's been three years since that day and Dillon has managed to enslave the earth from his newly created castle, He has summoned the Major Arcana and become ruler of all humanity, But there are some people hoping to rebel, hoping to destroy the Major Arcana and Dillon, And I'm one of them.
But it's also said that if the Major Arcana and it's summoner are destroyed that the world will go back to just as it was before and all memories of the incident will belong to the hero's that sealed the evil. This is said in the book of light which is in the possession of the Rebellion, you are recruits of this elite force or a warrior of the Major Arcana, The choice is yours.

Zanimara
October 12th, 2008, 1:00 AM
I hope that this is okay. Be warned: it's a little long.

-----

Name: Zanimara Ahrorra (Xani for short)

Gender: Female

Age: 17

Birthday: June 13th

Description: Zanimara has shoulder length, wavy red hair. It has natural gold and copper highlights. It also covers her right eye, which she is blind in, due to a jagged scar from an accident. Her right eye lost all of its color after the incident, but after the healing process, the iris and pupil turned to a soft silver in color. Her left eye is sharp and lavender in color, and it always seems to shine.
She is fairly tall for a girl her age, as she reaches the height of six feet. She’s toned as well, but not muscular. She’s also not super-skinny like a lot of girls, but reaches a healthy weight.
Outfit: For a top, she wears a very dark gray t-shirt that has the words “I bite.” below a picture of a snarling wolf with reddish colored fur. On her arms, she wears a pair of long, black archer gloves with silver, vine-like designs twisting around them. For pants, she has on a pair of green, cameo jeans that flare out at the bottom. On her feet she has a pair of dark brown, combat/hiking-like boots.
On those cold, winter days, she puts on a big, fluffy, purple colored jacket with a large hood.

Personality: Zanimara is a very intelligent young woman. She has an IQ of about 135. But, her intelligence isn’t just all book smarts. She’s very people/street-smart as well. She can pick up on someone’s true emotions instantly, even if they’re not showing them.
She’s also extremely kind. She has been known to help people in need that she doesn’t even know. Of course, this is only if you’re on her good side. If not, she will not trust you with much of anything. If you’re on her bad side, then mercy be with you, as no one has been known to have negatively confronted her and gotten away unscathed. She’s mainly a defensive person, but she can be nasty if she gets into the offensive.
Her friends are her Pokemon and the very few people who have earned her complete trust. One of these people is Rei. They have known each other since they were ten, as they grew up in the same area of town. She has other friends, but due to the recent world take-over by Dillon, she has been separated from most of them. She is very protective over her friends, and would give her life for them.
Because of her past, Zanimara seems shy and withdrawn at first. She seems like she doesn’t care. But she has a heart of gold, and has always cared about every living creature. Once you get her out of her shell, she’s a blast to be around. She’s smart, funny, random, and a big sweetheart.
As a result of her true, down-to-earth persona, Pokemon seem to flock to her. She can often be found feeding and caring for lost and injured Pokemon that she finds along her travels. Even if not injured, Pokemon cannot help but love her and her kindness.

History: Xani had a normal childhood. She had great, nurturing and supportive parents, no siblings, and a good outlook on life. They grew up in the good part of town, so violence and drugs was a rare occurrence. The only bad thing that really happened to her while she was young was that she was bullied once and a while because of her quick growth spurt.
She got her first Pokemon when she was ten. It was a shiny Charmander. She named him Charkhol, and they grew to be fast friends. Charkhol was hardly ever in his Pokeball, as he and Xani could never get enough of one another. They were always at each other’s side. Charkhol looked up to his master like she was his mother, and is deathly protective over her.
Not long after, Xani met Riiarei, or Rei. She also had a Pokemon, only hers was a Sneasel that was about the same age Xani’s Charmander. Nearly every day after, they met after school or on the weekends, and they would play and laugh together. Once in a while they would train their Pokemon together, and other times they would make them battle each other. They were each other’s best friend.
When they we nearly the age of fourteen, they were still practically inseparable. On February of 2004, a month before Rei’s birthday, an evil broke out into the world. Demons flooded the planet, destroying and enslaving people. There were some that managed to get out of the destruction. Rei plus her family and Xani plus her family were a part of the some that escaped. They all fled to an island unknown to the evil.
A year passed, and in that year’s fall, the island was discovered by a few of the demons. They attacked the villagers, who fought back with all their might. They managed to kill one of the four demons, but the other three were still strong, and there were fewer villagers.
It was then that Xani and Rei decided to join into the fight. They got their weapons that they used for hunting and headed outside. Since they practiced for this day in private, they had no problem taking down two of the demons. Unfortunately, the biggest one cornered Xani and knocked away her weapon.
It was then that Xani closed her eyes and shouted the words, ‘Go away!’. Suddenly, she couldn’t hear the morbid laughs of the demon anymore, and a second later, heard a sickening crack. When she opened her eyes, she saw that something had knocked the demon clear across the beach and into a tree. The force had been enough to break its spine.
When Xani asked Rei what had happened, she reported that when she shouted those words, it was like something grabbed the beast and flung it backwards against the tree. Xani knew instantly what had happened: she had used telekinesis. She was a big fan of strange occurrences and fictional/unknown things, so she had read many of books on this. Xani then explained to Rei about how she had been able to detect things in other peoples thoughts and move small objects when she was younger. She hadn’t practiced it in a while, so she thought that it had left her.
They decided that this could be a useful tool, but they chose not to tell the others, as they worried that they would become fearful of them. After about six months of training, Xani had mastered her ability to move large objects with her mind, and to read others minds. She had also gained the ability to put psychic energy into a visible form, and she could use it to heal and attack. Although, it drained her of a lot of energy, and if she used it too much she would faint. Also, during that time period, Rei discovered that she could do something special too: she was pyrokinetic (she can manipulate and create flames).
Soon after, Dillon personally came to the island. He falsely preached to the people that the demons that attacked were not his demons. He claimed that he offered great power and safety to all that joined him. Being fools, Rei and Xani’s parents signed them all up to become part of the Major Arcana. The villagers were soon all slaves to Dillon. A few were killed as the months went by, but not many. Then, the horrible happened: Xani’s parents, who had been personally promised safe-keeping, were murdered by no other than Dillon himself.
Furious beyond belief, Xani charged Dillon as soon as she heard the news. He easily evaded her, but wasn’t expecting for her to knock him away once she was behind him. Dillon had no trouble recovering from this, and surprised Xani with a cheap-shot slash upwards with his sword. She attempted to dodge the move, but he still got her. The sword cut through part of her right eye and the brow above it. Xani, now in very great pain, unleashed a gigantic ball of energy that ripped through Dillon’s stomach. He did not die from this, but still teleported away, as he had been weakened.
Given a chance to escape, Xani fled to Rei. They took the distraction of the King’s wound as their ticket to freedom. They snuck around the unusually few guards and made it outside. They traveled for months, until they eventually ran into another group of people who had escaped the King’s wrath. Together, they formed the Rebellion. And they are now striking back.

Pokemon: (Name~ Gender - Species - Coloration - Nature)
Charkhol~ Male - Charizard - Shiny, with golden eyes and a golden flame - Docile
Rheena~ Female - Absol - Shiny - Modest
Iisaya~ Female - Gardevoir - Normal - Sassy

Weapons: She uses a bow and arrows. The bow is crafted by her, and it has a unique design very much like her gloves. It’s black with silver vine-like shapes running through it. The ends are silver, pointed and dagger-like. Other than that, she just uses her psychic abilities.

Other: To this day, she has not gained much more control over her powers. Here’s the description and level of her powers:
Telekinesis~ The ability to move objects with one’s mind. - Strong: Can lift large objects, such as cars.
Telepathy~ The ability to communicate with others through thought and read minds. - Very Strong: Can go past a person’s thought process and into their brain, where she can see and know things that you may not want her to see or know.
Healing~ The ability to take psychic energy and put it to a person’s wound, therefore speeding up the cellular regeneration. - Weak: Can only heal small wounds without fainting, such as minor battle injuries (large cuts, dislocation, etc).
Aggressive Spiritual Beckon~ The ability to put psychic energy into a physical form that will destroy anything it touches. Weak: Can only summon energy around her hands or small orbs of it to fire at targets. When it is around her hands, it acts like fire, and will leave an acidy, burning feel on anything it touches. The balls of energy can pierce through things that are soft and/or weak enough.

RP Sample:
After arriving, Sera settled on a rock near the entrance of Rinhid Cave. She noticed her friend of about a year, Rei, was also there. She gave her a hug and began talking to her.

"How long have you guys been here?"

Before her question could be answered, Sera heard a small voice attempt to speak above the crowd. She looked over to find Matt, who was struggling to get everyone's attention. Even though his voice was barely audiable, she managed to pick up on what he was saying.

"We need to get our Pokemon out so we can go in and find this Pokemon."

Sera nodded her head to herself in agreement. Just as she was about to release Tycile, Mina's voice broke through the crowd, practically loud enough to shatter ear drums.

"QUIEEEET!!!"

Sera jumped at the sudden shout, and glared at Mina out of the corner of her eye. Geez, that scared the living crap outta me! The outburst was soon followed by a few seconds of booming music, but she decided she would ignore it.

After calming herself, the redhead reached up to her Pokeball that dangled around her neck. She pressed the button in the center of the red and white orb, and the red beam once again made its way out. Only this time, when it reached the ground, it released the Pokemon it had grabbed earlier.

Tycile remained on the ground, still asleep. Sera smiled kindly at the Mudkip as his body rose and fell with his breathing.

Then, a sharp, cold wind broke through the once still air. When the redhead looked to see where it was coming from, her eyes widened in surprise when she saw that it was coming from the inside of the cave. Huh... that's really strange...

The odd disturbance was enough to wake Tycile. As he stretched out, he began to glance around, curious to his surroundings. But, as soon as he spotted the cave, his little heart was struck with fear and worry. He ran over to his master, who craddled him close, taken aback by his weird reaction.

"What's the matter, hun? You're normally curious about these sort of things."

"Kip! Mudkip!" Tycile cried softly as he nuzzled his head into his owner's chest.

Sera looked around, to see if anyone else had noticed the strange wind. Sure enough, her travel companion's Pokemon were also acting bizarrely. She also heard Mina say something about a breeze coming from inside the cave.

It was then that she felt something really unusual. It was similar to the feeling that she got when she was about to be in danger. She looked around, and noticed that Tandra and Mina were both holding gems of some sort. They were large, and seemed to be glowing. Her gut feeling worsened as her eyes fell on the cave.

... Something bad is going to happen...

No sooner had she thought this, Iysus's Pokemon, Lily, took off into the mouth of the cave. It was merely seconds before the Chikorita had disappeared into the darkness.

"Lily! Come back! Where are you going?" Iysus called out to her run-away Pokemon. She followed hotly in the path of her Chikorita, also vanishing into the dangerous black abyss of the cave.

Sera stood up and stared after the girl, concerned. She took a step forward towards the cave, hugging Tycile closer to her body. When she took another step closer, Mina's Machop darted in front of her, and then also ran off into the cave entrance.

God! What the heck is going on?

Mina soon followed after the gray Pokemon, after assuring everyone that she would be okay. A few minutes passed. Then, suddenly...

"AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! SOMEBODY HELP ME PLEASE!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!"

Sera's stare into the cave hardened into a glare. There's no chance in hell I'm letting one of these guys get injured.

The redhead sprinted into a cave. But it wasn't before long that she could barely see two feet ahead of her. Looks like I'll be needing a guide.

Sera nudged the Mudkip in her arms, "Hey, Tycile. Can you be brave for mommy? I need you to help me through this cave. Just stay a few feet ahead of me and warn me of anything bad. Okay?"

Tycile glanced up at his master, "Kip!" it sqeaked before giving an affectionate lick to the redhead's cheek.

"Good boy!" Sera beamed. She set the Pokemon gently down on the ground.

Keeping a telapathic emotional connection with Tycile the whole time, she bagan to slowly walk behind the Mudkip. He guided her over and around rocks, making sure not to disappoint.

Suddenly, Sera felt something odd underneath her foot. She glanced down, gasping as she saw a amulet.

Mina...

"Quick, Tycile! We have to find her!" Sera picked up the precious object before darting after her Pokemon, who continued to lead her into an unknown depth.

P.P.S. And out of curiosity, where's your profile, Fallen Angel?

Riiarei
October 12th, 2008, 12:21 PM
Name: Riiarei Hokkaido (but she prefers to be called Rei)

Gender: Female

Age: 17

Birthday: March 25th

Description: At 5'02", Rei is within the average height range of someone her age. She has short, crimson hair that spikes upwards slightly in the back and sharp, golden-yellow eyes, the right of which is slightly obscured by her bangs. She has a scar over her left eye.
Outfit: Her typical attire consists of a figure-hugging, dark gray tank top that cuts off just above her midriff, a pair of baggy black pants, and a pair of gray and white shoes with red, stripe-like designs on the sides. Unless the weather is unbearably hot, she'll also wear a white, sleeveless jacket. The jacket has black rings around the collar and sleeves with a red dragon design embroidered on the back. Furthermore, she is always seen wearing a silver dog tag around her neck that bares her name and birth date engraved on the front. She never takes it off.
In colder climates, she'll cover up with a gray, downy jacket. If it's snowing, she'll add on a black scarf, gloves, and a pair of snow boots for additional warmth.

Personality: Rei is a trouble maker in every possible way. She's cocky, she's arrogant, and she has an astounding temper. However, there is a kindness beneath her troublemaking exterior. She's outgoing and sociable with her friends and she's dangerously loyal and protective towards them. Though, she tends to hide emotions such as love and sadness. She also despises injustice. It infuriates her to see innocent people being harmed or treated poorly and she will often jump into dangerous situations without thinking if she knows that somebody is in danger.

History: Rei never knew her parents (or she wasn't old enough to remember them when they left her) and she spent the beginning of her childhood living a shady life on the streets of Goldenrod City. She went back and forth from home to home, but none of her foster parents every really cared about her. She mainly raised herself, and spent most of her time outside. She often got into fights with the local neighbor kids and didn’t listen to her teachers at the run-down school that she was forced to attend.
It wasn’t until she was nine that she was finally officially taken in by a nice elderly couple. It took them a while to ‘break’ young Rei, but they eventually got her to settle down and show more of her true colors, rather than just the hard exterior that she put on. They moved to a better city when Rei turned ten, hoping that this would also help to change her life for the better.
After moving into their new home, Rei received a special belated birthday gift from her parents. It was a young Sneasel, and he was a little different than most Sneasel’s, as he had black fur rather than dark gray. Rei grew quite attached to the little guy, as he boasted a similar persona to her own. She named him Raid, and they were bound together from that moment on.
A few months later, on her way to her new school, Rei met another young girl. She saw her from a distance walking next to a shiny Charmander. The girl was tall and had pretty red hair. When she caught up to her, Rei decided to be friendly (as she was normally wary of other kids because of her childhood) and asked for a name. The other girl eagerly replied, and introduced herself as Xani. They were quick to become friends, as were their Pokemon. They spent many after school evenings and weekends together, having sleepovers and days where they would go train their Pokemon or battle them.
When they we nearly the age of fourteen, they were still practically inseparable. On February of 2004, a month before Rei’s birthday, an evil broke out into the world. Demons flooded the planet, destroying and enslaving people. There were some that managed to get out of the destruction. Rei plus her family and Xani plus her family were a part of the some that escaped. They all fled to an island unknown to the evil.
A year passed, and in that year’s fall, the island was discovered by a few of the demons. They attacked the villagers, who fought back with all their might. They managed to kill one of the four demons, but the other three were still strong, and there were fewer villagers.
It was then that Rei and Xani decided to join into the fight. They got their weapons that they used for hunting and headed outside. Since they practiced for this day in private, they had no problem taking down two of the demons. Unfortunately, the biggest one cornered Xani and knocked away her weapon.
Rei witnessed as the demon drew closer to her best friend, laughing manically. She wanted to do something, but she was too far away, and she had to aid the wounded villagers. She felt an odd fury, like a flame, burn inside of her. It traveled from her core to her hands, and they began to feel really hot, like she was extending them towards a fire or something.
Before Rei could blink, Xani shouted something inaudible, and she heard the demon’s laughing cease. A millisecond later, it was flung against the nearest tree like a ragdoll. The demon went limp and fell to the ground.
Rei rushed over to her friend, who was confused as to what had happened. Rei explained, and then Xani told her about how she used to be able to detect things in other peoples thoughts and move small objects when she was younger. She thought that the power had left her since she hadn’t used it in so long.
It was then that Rei decided that they could use this to their advantage. She told Xani not to tell the others, and Xani agreed, as she was, too, worried about the other villager’s reactions. During their six months of training, Xani’s powers grew wondrously, and Rei herself discovered that she also had an ability. The feeling she got when she saw Xani in danger was due to the fact that she was pyrokinetic. She could create and manipulate flames. So they practiced alongside each other, and even dueled once and a while.
Soon after, Dillon personally came to the island. He falsely preached to the people that the demons that attacked were not his demons. He claimed that he offered great power and safety to all that joined him. Being fools, Rei and Xani’s parents signed them all up to become part of the Major Arcana. The villagers were soon all slaves to Dillon. A few were killed as the months went by, but not many. Then, the horrible happened: Xani’s parents, who had been personally promised safe-keeping, were murdered by no other than Dillon himself.
Rei watched as Xani ran out of the room, crying with fury at the loss of her parents. A few minutes later, she heard the sounds of a battle, and then, Xani’s scream pierced through the walls. Rei became terrified and drew fire to her hands, in case anyone were to come after her. Another few minutes passed, and Xani barged into the room, blood dripping from the hand that covered her right eye. She told Rei to hurry, as there would be few enough guards in the hallways so that they could make an escape.
Rei followed without question, and they soon found themselves outside.
While making their escape, one of the guards chased them. After the guard caught up to the pair, Rei whirled around to face it. To her misfortune, the guard was none other than her mother. She seemed to be partially possessed by some demon, as she looked to be fighting with her inner self at the confrontation of her daughter.
Suddenly, Rei’s mom lashed out at her daughter with a dagger, causing a wound over her left eye, but not enough to actually penetrate the eye. Rei’s mom brought up the same dagger and held it to her own heart, still struggling with the evil spirits that Dillon had injected her with. Then she screamed, ‘Run!!’ as she took her own life to save her daughter.
After a few months of travel, Rei and Xani managed to find another group of people who had escaped the King’s wrath. They named themselves the Rebellion, and swore to take vengeance on Dillon. As well, to this day, Rei still has no idea of what became of her father.

RP Sample:
Rei awoke early to the bright beams of sunlight filtering through her bedroom window. The teen grunted at the sun for it's gentle attempts at rousing her from her sleep as she rolled over and pulled the sheets over her head in a futile effort to preserve her slumber. She hated waking up early.

It wasn't until Rei remembered she was supposed to meet up with her friends today that she greeted the morning with a little more enthusiasm. Together, they had planned on exploring Rinhid Cave, which was rumored to be the home of a magical Pokemon, spoken of only in myths and legends. Rei had always been curious as to what mysteries the cave was hiding and the thought of finally going in to explore had her practically brimming with newfound excitement. She hastily rolled out of bed, which succeeded in startling awake the Chimchar who had previously been fast asleep on his trainers pillow, and quickly prepared for the adventure that awaited her.

Once she had eaten breakfast and gotten dressed, she surveyed her appearance in her bathroom mirror before grabbing her backpack and beckoning to her Pokemon as she opened the front door. "Come on, Inferno," she said. "Let's get going. We don't want to keep our friends waiting."

The Chimchar cheerfully situated himself on his trainer's shoulder as she stepped out of her small house and closed and locked the door behind her. She did a quick check to make sure she hadn't forgotten anything before heading off in the direction of Rinhid Cave.

When she arrived, noticed that a few of her friends had already arrived. "Hey, guys!" she greeted, mentally thanking God that she hadn't been the last to arrive.
