History and story


"A wolf in sheep clothes."

Around the year 800 A.C, the first Youkai started surfacing the earth in the disguise of regular humans for the sake of preying on them. Where they came from was unknown as to why they seemed to be appearing out of nowhere. It wasn't until 900 that humanity decided to fight back and the first war between Youkai vs. Humanity became reality. This war came to an end in the year 927 and despite it's number was called "The Quarter War."

After the Quarter war, humanity and Youkai were celebrated as equals under the guidance of saint Yshera, a woman born from the love between a Vampire man and human lady. Together they made both human and Youkai society thrive but this coexisting bond appeared to be merely thin as another war happened in 1260. In this war humanity proved to be clever creatures as they used the knowledge about their weaknesses against them and Youkai were forced to go back to where they came from. Under the guidance of saint Lysia, a woman born from a snowwoman mother and a human father, they evacuated to the realm of Youkai after it was clear that humanity did not wish to negotiate. Lysia lost her life during this evacuation and left behind a daughter that was never heard of again. Many humans and Youkai, including Lysia, lost their lives during this war and for this reason, the war received it's name "The Blood Moon War."

Humans and Youkai never learned to coexist again and due time, humans started to forget Youkai existed all together. Some say that this was the work of Youkai with the ability to alter memories. Other's say that humans have a feeble memory. Whatever the reason was that they had forgotten their bloody past, it wasn't one easily forgotten by the Youkai. Especially the species that were able to become old enough to still breath in present day.

Today it's the year 2020. It has been 760 years since the last war and human society is at it's peak once again. What they didn't know was that Youkai had started living among them once again, some were criminals that were never able to forgive the humans for their bloody past and became serial killers, others were presidents of prestigious companies or even prime-ministers of their respective countries. Some humans knew of the existence of Youkai and were maybe even married to one while others stayed in the dark like most of human society. Humans that knew about Youkai often wrote books and stories about them.

... But something that was certain was Youkai wishing for another war.

Youkai list


  • Neko (1/1)
    Spoiler:
    The Neko specie is peculiar and known throughout the Youkai realm for their playful behavior. Their long, painfully sharp nails and very mobile body structure make them excellent fighters in battle. Their Youkai appearance consists of a pair of cat ears and a cat tail. Depending on the clan it can differ in size and color. They were the most loved species by the humans and are less likely to hate them. Their cuisine is mostly fish related meals and some of them roam the human world as traveler merchants as they have the same lifespan as humans.
  • Vampire (1/1)
    Spoiler:
    Vampires are creatures that usually live in small kingdoms ruled by a king and a queen. Vampires can age up until 400 years old but stop aging physically at the age of 25. Their trademark is their superhuman strength, crimson eyes and silver hair in Youkai form. They use a rosary to be able to stay in human form. This can either be a bracelet, earring, necklace or any accessory that can be worn. This is because their magical power is rather weak. Vampires love human blood but are able to live without. There is a place in Romania icalled "Transylvania" in the human world that is ruled by Vampires.
  • Werewolf (0/1)
    Spoiler:
    Werewolves are Youkai that were easily misunderstood throughout human history. According to humans they are only able to transform during a full moon while in truth, they can transform anywhere and anytime they want. They are known for their superhuman speed and peculiar hate for the Vampire specie. They are often at war with them although no one knows why. Werewolves are fastest during full moon and are in human form most of the time. Their real appearance is that of a wolfbeast. Werewolves usually die at the age of 120
  • Mermaid (1/1)
    Spoiler:
    Mermaids are Youkai's with the upper body of a human and the lower body of a fish. In their Youkai form they have gills instead of ears and a monstrous mouth when devouring their prey. They have the ability to manipulate water to bend to their will. They usually live in lakes and oceans in the human world. Some of them live in the Youkai realm in kingdoms but since their specie only consist of females, they need specifically human males to reproduce. Mermaids live for around 400 years
  • Succubus/incubus (1/1)
    Spoiler:
    A demon/devilish like Youkai that grows devil wings and a devil tail in their Youkai form with long nails competing with those of the Neko specie. Succubi and Incubi are Youkai that live from the pleasure they give and/or receive from about anything that breathes. They are well known from stories on earth and are often very beautiful women or men. Do be careful because these creatures are true illusion masters and have the ability to attract about anything depending on the mental strength of a person. Succubi and incubi have the same lifespan as that of a human.
  • Yuki Onna (Snowwoman/man) (1/1)
    Spoiler:
    Yuki Onna is a specie that is able to manipulate ice and create ice with their body temperature alone. In Youkai form they have sharp ice claws as a feature and a very cold, frosty skin. In human form they are able to recreate the body warmth of a normal human being with illusion magics. Yuki Onna and Mermaids have a small rivalry going one since old times as some Yuki Onna's would freeze the lakes in which mermaids live. Mermaids would manipulate water to freeze Yuki Onna's with their own body temperatures in turn. Both are able to get out of their "cold" situations though, so it never became more than a friendly rivalry. Many Yuki Onna's still roam the earth and live in snowy mountains but there are still enough living in the Youkai Realm. Yuki Onna's are able to become 200 years or older depending on their life style. They age the same way as humans.
  • Fairy (1/1)
    Spoiler:
    Fairies. Maybe one of the most annoying creatures inhabiting the Youkai realm. Fairies tend to be horrible pranksters and have strong magical powers. Those magical powers can only be accessed after making a contract with another Youkai or Human and have them wish for something. Some Fairies are truthful and will make your wish come true but not without getting something in return. Other Fairies might make the wish backfire on you but still take the other end of the bargain. Fairies in their Youkai form are small creatures looking like humans in appearance but with wings growing on their backs. Fairies only exist within the four small Fairy kingdoms. Water and Earth kingdoms reside in the human world while Fire and Wind kingdoms reside in the Youkai realm. Fairies can live for a 1000 years.
  • Yasha (1/1)
    Spoiler:
    A Youkai whose origin goes back to India but also live in China nowadays. Yasha use coins to summon other "Youkai" creatures. These creatures can vary from panda warriors to tigers and small wyverns. Yasha are gifted in swordmanship and their talens has been recognized by other Youkai since ancient times. Better yet, most samurai from Japan history were Yasha. Yasha live in clans throughout India, China and Japan. They do not live in the Youkai realm since even in their Youkai form, they still resemble regular humans except for a third eye growing on their foreheads. Yasha age in the same way human do but can live up to about 150 years. Some say that Yasha are very lucky creatures.
  • Youko (1/1)
    Spoiler:
    Youko are Youkai that have the ability to turn into a fox with nine tails and manipulate fire. Youko have to "earn" their tails as each tail makes them slightly stronger. They can do this is several ways with, for example, proving their bravery or any other sort of achievement. Youko don't usually have all nine tails until they grow into adults. Youko don't live in the human world but they do occasionally visit and wander around. Youko come in different sizes and thus personalities. They don't typically live together in big groups as they're mostly free spirits. Youko have the same lifespan as a regular human.
  • Lamia (1/1)
    Spoiler:
    Lamia are half-snake and half-human. In their Youkai form they have the lower body of a snake and depending on the area they come from, they have something at the end of their tail that helps them hunt. This can be poison, something sharp to stab with. There are many different kinds of Lamia all around the Youkai realm. Just like the Youko, Lamia do not typically live in the human world but when they do they are usually someone important within a big company. The reason for this is simply because they have brainwashing abilities and humans are easier to fall prey to this even when the Lamia isn't even trying. They don't get older than 160 years.
  • Mage/Witch (2/2)
    Spoiler:
    The true masters of alchemy and magics are the mages and witches born in the Youkai realm. They are able to call for complicated spells and use their potions to their advantage. Since they are basically humans with an affinity for magics, they fought against the Youkai in the Quarter War. In the Blood Moon War they lay dormant and were the first to retreat to the Youkai realm. Some mages and witches still live in the human world. They are not exactly well liked by other Youkai species.
  • Oni (1/1)
    Spoiler:
    The Oni. A specie that humans often describe in fairytales as one-eyed brute beings that have meat for brains. They aren't completely wrong, although there are some misconceptions. Oni's have two eyes and some of them are pretty intelligent. Oni's in their Youkai form have a total of 4 arms and are often quite big and muscular while their skin color depends on their clan. Most of them hate the humans but some of them broke free of this mindset and started exploring the human world on their own, some even settled down. Oni's have a powerboost in their Youkai form but not as much as a Vampire does. Oni's can reach the age of 275 years old and they age slowly.
  • Kraken
    Spoiler:
    Kraken's are used in a lot of folklore in the human world and are usually described as giant octopus beings that wreck ships sailing the sea during storms. No one knows how this story came to exist but what we do know is that Kraken are actually Youkai with 8 tenticles for arms in their Youkai form and look rather normal in their human form. Their height differs per Kraken and instead of normal white colored eyeballs with round irisses, they can have different coloured ones and horizonal stripes for irisses. Most Kraken roam around but there are groups living together in camps in the Youkai realm. Besides having 8 tenticles, Kraken can also breath underwater. They have the same life span as a human being.
  • Human
    Spoiler:
    Once in a while, the principal of Youkai Academy allows one human to join the academy with as purpose to find a bridge between the human world and Youkai realm that can be used to help both parties to coexist. Those are usually humans coming from a family that know about the existance of Youkai. Humans are fairly regular and don't have any special abilities. The principal does ask this human student to act as a different Youkai specie. Humans are able to receive abilities throughout the RP. Whether this be learning alchemy, receiving a werewolf or vampire bite or anything along those lines.

    GM's note: If you want to take the human spot, keep in mind that you're going to have to choose a Youkai specie in your SU and not let anyone else know that you are taking the human spot. Throughout the RP you'll convince the other RPers that you really are said specie. Humans can write a PM to me with their overall human idea since there was a high demand for it.
  • Dragon
    Spoiler:
    Can't be played by students. This information here is for story purposes.

    Dragons are believed to have gone extinct after the The Blood Moon war where saint Lycia was killed together with the last dragon, who was her husband. They left behind a daughter but without anyone to take care of her she was believed to have gone dying pretty soon after losing her parents. There are no records of her after the war.

    Dragons are powerful creatures with the ability to completely manipulate the element they were born with. Dragon's element and colour depend on the season they were born in rather than the genes of their parents.

    Spring is the element of wind.
    Summer is the element of Fire.
    Fall is the element of Earth.
    Winter is the element of water.

    Dragons are believed to be able to reach the age of over 5000 years old. Even far before the humans discovered the Youkai within their world, dragons were already roaming it.

Full name: Kitumise Himamaro
Age: 20
Gender: Male
Species: Youko

Appearance:
Spoiler:


Personality: Kitumise is a coward; he will run away from anything dangerous, and he is also very timid and doesn't like meeting new people. He will feel threatened if you try to touch him or even just wave at him; sometimes, he will run away in the cave where he was born in. The only one Kitumise trusts is one friendly Kappa whos name is Kapan anyone else he will try to avoid; even if he is scared of everything vampires scare him the most if he ever interacts with one, he will most likely try to get Kapan to make him feel protected. He really likes Kapan and rice. He dislikes other youkai and hates vampires, and on his Freetime, he usually hangs out with Kapan or goes back to his cave.

History: Kitumise was born inside a cave in the grand canyon Kitumise never got to know who his parents were and never met them because after Kitumise was born he had not woken up yet, and for reasons his parent had to leave; he lived in the cave for most of his life, but he had a friendly kappa taught him to survive the Kappa lived with him for almost his entire life, but after an incident where he almost got killed by other youkai he has been scared of everything that could oppose a threat to him the way; his first tail was given when he was born his second, third, and fourth tail after fending himself against vampires. These vampires were trying to kill him after Kitumise accidentally shot a fireball at three vampires those vampires thought Kitumise was opposing a threat to them, so they attacked him, but with one tail there was no way he could survive, but Kappa came in and defended Kitumise surprisingly the Kappa was able to withstand the vampires attacks and get them weak enough for Kitumise to take them out, and he did, but for some reason he grew three more tails, but this was also the reason he is scared of everything now.

Weakness: His lack of cowardice is affecting him majorly if not resolved; he won't be able to grow any more tails.

Allergies? Anything other? Please write down below: He has no allergies and also has nothing other.

I hope I did this right. I can expand this if you want me too, and I think you made an error in the Yasha spoiler because it says Youko can use coins to summon other "Youkai" creatures.

Thanks for pointing out. I was making the Yasha and Youko lore at the same time so I messed the names up a little. It's fixed now. My div code also seems to be working again.

About your SU... You kept your history brief, which is great because I prefer characters in this RP to find out about each other's past through communication. However, your history tells almost nothing except for a few events that happened. Could you describe a little bit more where this cave was located for example? Why was he attacked by Vampires? Did his parents just leave him when he was born? Try to write in a little more detail. If you prefer to keep your history mostly to yourself, you can PM it to me for a checkup. I should also mention that a newborn or a kid most likely wouldn't survive all on his own. Did he have no one to teach him the ways of survival?

Your personality section is also short and lacking in detail. It would be great if you could edit it to show a little more of your character and how he acts in certain situations. Does he have any hobbies for example, things he likes and dislikes? Any other personality traits?

Change the Personality and History section and you're good to go.

Ooo.. it's actually an interesting RP. I like the concept, i'll be writing my SU. I'll be reserving Mage if it's possible

Edit : How old is a student supposed to be at the academy?
I'll reserve you! And depending on your specie, they should be around 16-20. Fairies could be 340 for example and still be a teen. although they would be considered old around 800. Same with the other species that can get older than the human life span. Mages have a human life span

Full name: Laguna Beach
Age: 42 (Mermaid equivalent of a 16 year old human)
Gender: Female
Species: Mermaid

Appearance:

In her human form, Laguna is 5' tall with an athlete's lean build. Her pale blue hair resembles the scales of her true form, though she wears it in a long ponytail when out of the water. Oddly, her teeth are sharp and predatory in all forms. For clothes, she prefers to keep it light, generally wearing a tank top over a fishnet shirt with long sleeves. She despises pants, instead opting for a skirt, and goes barefoot when she can, wearing flipflops when she can't.

Personality: Laguna is one of the most friendly, energetic, and silly girls you could meet. She likes to experience new things: meet new people, eat new foods, hear new stories. When she arrives in a new place, she likes to hear local rumors and spread gossip, and in general loves a good conversation. She likes to have fun and loves cute things, although she's none too bright. She tends to lose focus and needs to be reminded to stay on task or else she'll be completely lost. She's surprisingly strong for her size, and has literally dragged people from one attraction to another while caught up in the excitement.

The world is in need of new ideas and bold action, and Laguna has deep respect and a little envy for creative types. In her opinion, she can't sing, has trouble following basic recipes, and her water magic is basic and only good for party tricks. She doesn't like to focus on the negative, and instead chooses to point out how good others are. Despite her habit of diverting the attention away from herself, she has trouble keeping her thoughts and feelings hidden. While rambling, she tends to say more than she should, and often doesn't realize when she lets something slip.

Having spent most of her life underwater, Laguna enjoys anything aquatic, from hot tubs to swimming pools, and is oddly fascinated by seemingly mundane things such as books and stairs. She knows she's weird, but doesn't let that bother her. What does bother her is when people put themselves down or give up. She doesn't mind when her own shortcomings are mentioned, as she's happy to hear constructive criticism or even a good joke at her expense, and she'll be quick to try and cheer up anyone having a hard time. She also doesn't like people messing with her hair, but that just leads to momentary grumpiness rather than anger or anything severe.

History: Born in the Youkai realm, Laguna was the youngest of three triplets, whom she was never away from. As she grew, she became stronger than her sisters, but still followed them and played lackey to their schemes. She was sent to the Academy alone partly to get her out of their shadows, but also with a mission to scout of the human realm in search of a suitable new home for her expanding kingdom (a mission she has difficulty remembering to do).

Weakness: Laguna lacks ambition and initiative, and could easily become dependent on others to make decisions for her. She needs to learn to think for herself and become her own person.

Allergies? Anything other? Please write down below: Laguna has developed a fondness for human food, despite its lack of nutritional value to a mermaid. She will almost always be eating as a result, usually fast foods or snacks. She especially likes tacos.

Ok, I hope I didn't make my history too long, and I introduced a kappa because it's considered a youkai, right? And I couldn't think of any other youkai that might be friendly.
So is it okay now?

I really like your character and how you took advantage of her aging process as a mermaid! :) I would only like to ask you to expand the personality section a little bit more. Since I asked everyone to keep the history brief, I had hoped people would automatically write a little bit more in the personality part. Just a little bit more detailed and what her hobbies are and stuff should already give you enough for a whole or maybe two paragraphs! You're almost good to go!

Ok, I hope I didn't make my history too long, and I introduced a kappa because it's considered a youkai, right? And I couldn't think of any other youkai that might be friendly.
So is it okay now?
I'm going to PM you when I get home :)

Personality : Harold is a cheerful guy who loves to smile a lot, he loves to listen at people's conversation when he have the time to (which is unfortunately rare) but he doesn't like to reveal much about himself even when asked about it. He enjoy reading books on history and magic and learning swordsmanship, that and also experimenting with different kinds of enchantment and alchemy recipes which use most of his time. He is also competitive in terms of magic and afraid to let anyone down on that term. He loves to eat sweets and latte coffees which usually accompany him in his work. He is also an analytical and hardworking person who doesn't want to quit until he got the answers he need. However, sometimes takes slightly too much risk in experiments if it doesn't harm any other people which at the end usually cause problem to other people unlike intended. He is also a practical person who would try to fix a problem as soon as it rises.

Weakness : He's afraid of hurting people with his people with his opinion, as he is a practical thinker who use logic first than feeling in consideration. Which has caused him to be a more of a listener than a speaker, which had to remedied so he can give insight carefully without causing issues. He also afraid to let people's expectation down, which cause him to rarely take initiative on situations even if his talent suits it unless it's necessary.

Allergies? Anything other? Please write down below: Allergies, i guess not. Um.. maybe i'm just going to write the fact that currently for more intermediate level magic he still have to use helping tools and medium. That and if possible he'll probably have a small lab/ test bench in his room.

Rin Wrangell
17 years old ❆ ♂ ❆ Yuki Onna / Snowman
Theme song:


Appearance: Rin is almost 6' tall and fairly strong for being a young yuki onna. And yet, a normal human may easily think he's ill - his skin is very pale, his eyes almost purple, his hair platinum blonde. He looked quite scruffy, too, although he's been trying to fix this in preparation for joining the Academy.
Especially when staying on the Earth, Rin tries his best to dress up as much as possible, covering everything but his face with clothes. This is to conceal his low body temperature and yokai features. He usually achieves this by using items like winter boots, a scarf, a beanie and certain kinds of coats such as parkas: they don't need to keep the cold out though, but to keep it in instead. This is somewhat less of an issue in the yokai world, of course.

Personality: Rin's personality was definitely shaped by his secluded, but still active lifestyle. He would often help with managing home, adventure outside in the mountains or hunt animals together with other yuki onnas. So, like most snowmen, Rin is usually taciturn, reserved and serious. He likes to plan in advance his choices and his activities, rather than being in a rush. Furthermore, he has a good sense of orientation and overall physical prowess.

Hunting, on the other hand, made Rin more stubborn as well: when he's set on an objective, he'll do all in his power to achieve it, just like a hunter keeps chasing the prey, and will in turn become more eager and hot headed. In other words, he won't back down from a fight.
Being secluded also caused him to be quite underwhelming in normal conversation: Rin is not good at hiding his true feelings, even if they could hurt others. Plus, he sometimes falls into the mistake of oversimplifying reality, basically painting everyone with the same brush.

Rin values the environment where he grew up, alongside all the other yokai he's met there... even though they're very few. There are at most four other yokai he could consider as friends, but he's alright with that and cares deeply about that tight-knit group. Yes, even if one of them is a Mermaid!
Rin has only seen humans from a distance, where they wouldn't notice him back. Most of the things he knows about them come from the stories of other yokai. Not long ago, Rin started to blame the humans for what happened to his earthly home, and to consider them uncapable of taking care of their world: but deep inside, he still hopes for a reconciliation. Living a quiet life in the mountains, in his mind, is to be preferred over risking your life in a war.

History: Rin has been raised on the Earth somewhere in North America, in a very cold place overlooked by most humans, but home of many Yuki Onnas for centuries. He doesn't know much about his first years - no one told him anything about it. His home was up in the mountains and at a safe distance from the nearest town, where only his relatives would go from time to time. He in fact lived a quite sheltered life up there, until recently...
The entire area had become more involved in human activities, but also more dangerous for Yuki Onnas, with wildfires increasing in size and frequency. That is why Rin's family decided to try and find a new home in the Yokai world. Rin, however, never wanted to leave, and is now determined to reclaim his home!
Of course, in order to accomplish this, he will need all the help it can get, including the various lessons that are held at the Academy.

Weakness: Unlike many other Yuki Onnas, Rin is rather bad at using his magical powers. After all, he didn't really need them: his lifestyle was that secluded. This also means his human form is not perfect: his hands look rather off and he is not warm like humans.

Allergies? Anything other? Please write down below: Spicy food is to be avoided at all costs, he just can't stand it. The worst case scenario being, obviously, peppers. He's sure he's allergic to them, yet has no medical exam to prove it. How did he even come across one? Probably a prank made in the yokai world...

I think I'm gonna be working on a Youko, more details incoming when I get writing! Right now it's time to nurse this headache.
"Ever looking forward, ever thinking back. Everywhere you've been, everyone you've met was another step on your path, shaping your future even as they become part of your past. One must never discount the pieces that have made up your journey until now but to lose yourself in them would be equally great folly, instead let them hoist you up, carry you on until you find the strength to walk for yourself. So it is that I continue towards that endless horizon. Ever thinking back, ever marching forward, inexorable as the history that brought me down this road. This Lonesome Road."

Karma Arameia (17) ♀
Yasha and regretting it


Traditions die hard, but sometimes the sanctity of those traditions isn't so easy to instill in the generations to come. So it was for 13 year old Karma upon realizing that she was able to summon youkai.

And she didn't want to.

No, Karma was a girl just trying to fit in and having a hard enough time with that. When her third eye first appeared it raised so much uproar that she was almost forced to change schools. "Almost" because she managed to take care of it by wearing a hat to school. A baseball cap, to be specific. This, ironically, made her stand out even more and she started to gain a sense of self loathing as a result. At the time, anyways. As she grew older she would begin to understand the nature of her heritage and hate that instead. Needless to say, living as a human while not actually being a human was surprisingly tough.

While she didn't get along with her family as a result of their insistence that she be proud of her heritage, there was one member of her family that she did get along with quite well, her grandfather. He was a sweet man who saw Karma as his pride and joy regardless of how she felt about her family. He never forced anything on her and it made him easy to talk to in a way that she didn't really have with anyone else. It was he who gave her the 10 yen coin that she would later use to summon youkai, telling her that no one is forced to be what they don't want to be. At the time this felt a bit ironic that he was giving her a literal tool of her kin that she likely wasn't going to use.

Karma would eventually reach high school and upon doing so realize that the world was very, very different. Kids wouldn't think she was odd for her long bangs or the weird hats she would wear, and in fact she found herself bothered and stared at far less by pretty much everyone. High school was a time of self invention and self discovery, everyone was figuring out who they were. It felt like a break for once, one that she would welcome with open arms until a particular day. Even though she was being judged less and less, Karma made it a point to hide her third eye. She wasn't human, after all, and that was something no amount of self-discovery could justify. But she still had feelings, and this was where her talent for standing out would come to be a boon rather than a bane.

After school one day Karma was approached by a classmate that she hadn't really talked to much. This classmate talked about how she was always interested in Karma as her name was as unusual as was pretty much everything about her. She also thought Karma was cute and made that very clear. Karma was taken aback by this, as the last thing that she had on her mind was the status of her sexuality, and even more she was worried that if someone did peek into her life they wouldn't like what they found inside. But she also found herself unable to push this girl away. Whether it was because she had feelings for the girl at the time or because she just wanted a friend was hard to say, but the two soon became very close. Other than her grandfather there wasn't really anybody else that made Karma feel as comfortable as she did.

Time passed and Karma's friend, named Yisa (Like Lisa but with a Y, completely self-styled), decided to finally make a move. As the two were watching TV in Karma's room, Yisa decided to take advantage of Karma's almost trance-like immersion in the show to give her something else to think about. She crawled over her and put herself in front of Karma, who was so in shock by the whole thing that the most she could manage were weird facial expressions, which Yisa obviously found adorable. She slowly moved her face closer to Karma's and as she did, her forehead rubbed against and pushed up the fringe of Karma's hat (which, at the time, was a sun hat, since it was bordering on Summer at the time). As she did, it was then that she caught note of something bizarre, that thing of course being an eye being right where it wasn't supposed to be. When she noticed it she paused, and this gave Karma enough time to collect herself, jump onto the bed behind her, and pull down her hat in fear. Karma knew that something like that would happen, she started to doubt why she ever decided to let Yisa into her life to begin with. That doubt failed to solidify as Yisa smacked the hat out off of her head and gently placed her lips on Karma's.

And for a while, she was happy, but it wasn't long before she realized that letting her guard down was never a good idea.

Karma's family always enjoyed having Yisa over as despite Karma's distaste for her family, her family loved her to death, so seeing her having a friend over for once was something they were more than accommodating for. When Karma was invited over to Yisa's place, she was cautiously optimistic. Her parents weren't nearly as high energy as Karma's were, though she just chalked that up to them being different people. But because of how sheltered she was, she didn't realize the small things. Small things such as how Yisa would be quiet when passing by their living room or why she might have told Karma to not leave her room until she was ready to leave. Or why Yisa didn't come to school the next day.

When she did finally come back, Yisa was substantially less cheerful than she had been before, and she practically clung to Karma. The yasha tried over and over to get her girlfriend to talk about what was going on but she would just try to change the subject. But it clearly wasn't a secret that she wanted to keep and by the end of the day she would spill the particularly sour beans. The two went into a stall in bathroom, Yisa took off her shirt, and revealed several bruises. Her house wasn't a safe place, and after Karma left that day she got into a fight with her already abusive father about Karma and who and what she was. He told her to stay away, calling Karma a monster after having seen her third eye for himself, but Yisa couldn't do that. Her happiness was with Karma, she was how she made it through every single day.

Karma, too, had her own decisions to make, though. She was overtaken by an unbalanced mix of happiness, sadness, and rage that threw her rationale out the window. She was happy that even despite the circumstances, Yisa stood by her regardless of her own safety, but at the same time she didn't want Yisa to get hurt anymore, she didn't want to be treated like some inhuman creature undeserving of respect. She went to her family's storage area. To her it'd just been a garage, she didn't really know much about what it was or what was in there other than some spare swords. Something that she had a natural aptitude for using. And other people weren't going to be hurt for something she couldn't control. So she took one of the spare blades, put out a tarp

And made a terrible mistake.

Blood began to spill from her forehead almost uncontrollably as her eye lay on the ground, slowly shriveling and looking at nothing in particular. Karma screamed as she clung onto her wound, moving to and fro until she hit the wall and blacked out. When she woke up, it had grown dark outside. She felt dazed, drained, and empty, but as she started to come back to reality she noticed that her eye was oddly pickled and preserved in a jar, the sword was placed back, the blood was cleaned up, and there was a strange wooden mask on the floor next to her. The door to the storage area was locked from the inside so it didn't seem as if someone else came in. And as she brushed her hair away from her face, she realized that there wasn't even a wound or a hole or anything like that. Her forehead was normal. That wasn't all that was different.

The next day as she arrived at school Karma was immediately called into the principal's office. Upon arriving she was greeted by a news story playing on the TV next to him involving a couple being brutally injured, albeit not mortally so. This didn't faze her at first, until she realized that the family in question was Yisa's. The principal went on to say that she couldn't be charged because, frankly, no one believes a human could hurt them the way they were injured and he, of all people, knew that she was a bit awkward but for the most part a good student. However Yisa's family- her father in particular, kept pushing and pushing that she was the one who did it to them and because of her relation to Yisa it did seem at least slightly plausible, putting the principal in an uncomfortable position. He offered, for her safety, that she take the next few days off, something she obliged as the whole situation made her feel odd. Everything recently was making her feel confused.

Seeing her girlfriend smile again made it all worth it, though.

When she arrived home her family was waiting for her, and it was the most upset she'd ever seen them. Well, "dismayed" is a better word. They sat her down and told her that she was transferring to a live-in school. At this she protested, but for the first time in her life they shot back. They explained to her that the Arameia family comes from a long line of information brokers, investigators, and historians for all things youkai. While the storage shed was partially for yasha training equipment, it was also just as much used for storing items they were to look into, keep safe, or keep others safe from. The mask that she had clasped to her pants (something even she hadn't noticed) was supposedly possessed by someone or some people. They didn't ask her to put it back however and, instead, said that they would like her to take it back to its point of origin, Youkai Academy, where she'd be attending. Many questions floating around in her head, she still protested saying she wouldn't leave Yisa behind.

Of the two of them, she was the only one that shared this sentiment. Yisa was there, and though she wasn't happy about it she wanted her to go just as much as Karma's parents. Yisa explained that she loved her a lot and what happened to her parents she was actually thankful for, rather than mad about. But Karma's eye being gone, what she did to herself, there was too much hatred for herself and who she was. But she didn't want that for Karma because Yisa legitimately loved Karma's family, she felt at home there in a way that she didn't in her own home, and it felt like Karma's family felt the same way about Karma but she didn't return that feeling and it cut her deep to see over and over again. Yisa wasn't going anywhere, her feelings weren't going anywhere. She just wanted Karma to be happy, and for now that meant letting her go.

---

Weakness: Loneliness. Yasha aren't necessarily predisposed to feelings of loneliness but because of average lifespan of one it can be pretty difficult to live a full love life. The idea of "'til death do us part" is all too real for them, and isolation is doubly an issue for those who have more difficulty blending into human society the way Karma has. While some in her situation would turn to family for support, her loathing for her family makes even this difficult.

Allergies? Anything other? Please write down below:
  • Her natural hair color is actually purple and that's what she was born with. Though the human side of her family generally has black hair as a result of hailing from the east, there were certain recessive genes at play that made her hair look an unnatural color when, really, it's a result of her bloodline. The yellow and white streaks were her trying, and failing, to test out other colors, and as her roots began to grow black as she got older, she ended up becoming the peacock she is today. Needless to say, her talent for standing out is only really aided by being a yasha but it certainly isn't the result of it.
  • She still wears hats out of habit, even if they generally mess up her hair and not as much as she did when she had three eyes. Her favorite type of hat is the sun cap, right next to hoodies.
  • She keeps the mask she found clasped to her pants though she's not really sure why she carries it around with her or even kept it at all.
  • Jeans and Khakis are her drug and if you diss denim she's gonna khaki your ass.
Lize stands for:
L - Love
I - Of
Z - My
E - Life
Eternally bound, eternally paired, eternally Dutch. Say hi to her will ya? It'll be the best decision you make today. Promise.

Hael Clar

Male | Fairy | 200 (Equivalent of 16)

Personality: Hael's personality is... difficult. Not in the sense of being hard to describe, but in the sense of being hard to deal with. His default setting seems to be apathy as to the world around him and the lives and struggles of others. He takes this a step further as well, being reckless with his own safety and uninterested in his own well-being.

Hael is the sort of person who can shrug off even the most heart-wrenching of sob stories. He is very self-centred and has little attachment to anyone or anything. His interest lays only with his own pleasure, resulting in hedonistic and at times borderline sociopathic tendencies. He'll smuggle illegal booze into school and get wasted instead of studying like he should and setup very mean-spirited pranks that provide him with a sense of perverse satisfaction. He is not above picking a fight with someone much larger than himself (so anyone really) if he thinks it will be amusing for a while.

Simply put, Hael is a bit of an asshole. He wasn't born like that though, and rather events in his past changed his philosophy into something bleak enough to greatly warp his personality. In reality, whilst he has buried most of his feelings under mountains of apathy, Hael was originally a very caring person. Most of his negative traits stem from self-loathing and a distaste for the world around him rather than a strong desire to hurt others.

With a great deal of effort, it is possible to unearth the caring, humorous and intelligent fairy at Hael's core. However, doing so would likely result in a long and traumatic process.

History: Hael was born in the kingdom of the Earth Fae, one of four small fairy kingdoms n existence and one of the two located in the human realm. That means that while the Wind and Fire fairies who dwell in the Yokai Realm were experiencing a very free and open lifestyle, for the sake of safety, Hael grew up with a lifestyle of secrecy.

The young Hael though, was not one to relish in this secrecy. He was the curious sort and he wanted to explore. So explore he did, pushing boundaries further and further until eventually he got himself discovered. He was found by a young human boy and the pair quickly developed a hidden friendship, one that would change Hael's life forever.

The trouble came not long after Hael revealed his wish granting ability to his friend. The young boy entered into a well-meaning wish pact with Hael, but magic that powerful can be unpredictable and the result was twisted. That was the event that changed Hael from bright, curious and friendly to his apathetic, hedonistic and often unpleasant self. Why care about a world that is unfair? Why take care of himself when he's got hundreds of years of guilt to look forward to?

Hael's enrolment into the Yokai Academy is a last ditch attempt at discovering a way to fix his problem without potentially making it worse, but he doubts he'll succeed.

Weakness: Hael does not take care of himself. He's an alcoholic despite his youth, he doesn't exercise as much as he should and he's far too willing to throw himself into dangerous situations if he thinks it'll be fun. Shockingly, he doesn't put much effort into academics either.

Lena Fujikawa
藤川 レナ

"I wish we could be friends forever!"

Haruka Akiyama was caught off-guard by a young girl, maybe six years old, coming out of nowhere and complimenting her hair and outfit during an exploratory walk through her new neighborhood. She never met a succubus in real life, but the little girl's adorable charm felt reminiscent of the things she'd been told of them by her much more experienced parents. (For some reason, her dad cowered in fear of her mom when they spoke of succubi. Haruka was afraid to ask for details.)

The girl's name was Lena Fujikawa. Haruka's family moved into the same cul-de-sac as hers. For her age, Lena was pretty busy; she'd already been going to piano lessons and a local dojo for a year by the time they met (the piano lessons apparently didn't last long). But she always seemed to make time to talk with Haruka nearly every day. She always noticed something new, or had different questions to ask that she probably just didn't want to ask any adults.

Lena's parents noticed how she took to Haruka as well, and often asked her to babysit when the adults wanted to have some time to themselves, as it were. Haruka herself looked roughly fifteen if she were human (at least, that's the number she was using), so she took the job and the girls became good friends despite the age gap.

As time passed it became rather evident that Haruka wasn't really growing. Admittedly, Lena's mother still looked quite young herself for being in her thirties, so she had an excuse if she needed one.

The reality was that Lena had accidentally seen her true form: Haruka was a fairy; but Lena only seemed to like her all the more, and her parents were completely accepting of this information. Thankfully, Haruka's parents didn't see any need to move again any time soon, especially since Lena was basically Haruka's only friend. (It didn't hurt that their dads were drinking buddies either.) It was the first time in the little over two decades they'd been among humans that they stayed in one place for more than a few years.

She lived a rather long life so far, but Haruka hadn't had much of a proper human education; and despite her relationship with Lena, who practically brute forced her way into Haruka's life, her people skills were pretty subpar. Kids grow fast, after all, and she'd stopped growing many years ago. (Her parents were even using illusion magic to look more age-appropriate.) She was home schooled, but that didn't mean too much. She completed middle school at some point, but it'd been a long time and a few moves since then. With her family's location no longer subject to change, she eventually enrolled in Youkai, when Lena was in her last year of middle school.

On Lena's side of things, she grew into a real beauty—thanks in part to her foreign mother's genes. And her compliments and smile went from cute and worth protecting to dangerous and alluring. Typical for a growing succubus awakening to their powers, as Haruka's mother described it, but it was really wearing on her, in more ways than one. She was still essentially adolescent herself, after all.

Worse for Haruka, Lena seemed completely oblivious to the destructive power she had. Whether it was intentional or not, the sense of distance between the two often felt next to nil whenever they were together, physical or otherwise. Although from Lena's perspective, there was probably never such a thing in the first place.

And Lena gave Haruka such attention—at the detriment of her attention to other things—that she nearly knew Haruka better than, well, Haruka. Not that other girls were exempt, as this perceptiveness seemed to be completely natural for her (again, sometimes getting in the way of things like studying). But Haruka's mother mentioned on more than one occasion her progress in teaching Lena how to cook her favorite foods.

Haruka asked once or thrice since they first met if Lena ever wished for anything special, but each time it was unabashedly about her. The last was probably the least innocent of them, and Lena was so honest and forward with it that she wasn't able to ignore it.

Lena wasn't hurting for potential companions her own age, and turned down more than a few. She was prepared to be rejected herself, aware of the difficulties they'd both suffer through. But the fairy said yes instead. This was the most she'd enjoyed her time in the human world; she was willing to give it a try.

That didn't mean she'd used that power of hers so easily, though. However intimate they became, it was with the knowledge that Lena was still relatively young, and not even Haruka was considered an adult. The barrier built by age and experience in spite of Haruka's youthful demeanor proved too much at the time for both of them. To her surprise, it was Lena who acknowledged it first, and the two remained close since.

But later, when Lena, recently turned sixteen, proudly presented an acceptance letter to Youkai Academy (which she really should have seen coming), Haruka decided that if Lena's wish hadn't changed soon, she'd make it come true.

"I want to be with you."

SU is done i think:

Perhaps if Death is kind, and there can be returning,
We will come back to earth some fragrant night,
And take these lanes to find the sea, and bending
Breathe the same honeysuckle, low and white.


We will come down at night to these resounding beaches
And the long gentle thunder of the sea,
Here for a single hour in the wide starlight
We shall be happy, for the dead are free.

Denizen of the DARK



Full name: Olivia de Roosevelt
Age: 19
Gender: ♀
Species: Vampire

Appearance: The rosary Olivia wears is a flower broach that sits on the collar of her many dresses. As with all vampires, Olivia's hair is silver, and her eyes radiate crimson red. One of her favourite dresses is lavender-coloured, decorated with lace, and buttoned neatly together in place. the lower half of this dress is a much darker shade of purple, a long dress that extends to the mid-section of her legs. she also wears high heel socks, and black dress shoes that are fashioned with a single buckle.

From the ever-grown high expectations of Olivia to exceed well with her enrollment of the Academy, she was also given another attire as a gift. This attire was passed down within her family for generations; a combat-oriented attire, tailored by the de Roosevelt ancestry. The dress is dark purple, decorated with silver lining to match her silver hair. Her rosary can still be in tact on her collar. The attire also comes with matching headgear; dark purple horns that resemble a goat. She attaches them from the back of her head, covering her ears, fitting neatly on each side of her head. Finally, it has a mask Olivia wears that covers up to the base of her nose. The mask can glow red in contrast of Olivia's crimson eyes.

Personality: As an heiress of an aristocratic society, Olivia has an almost enchanting air of dignity and grace. At first glance, Olivia can appear selfish and stuck-up, she is actually a very gentle and sweet young lady. She's smart, fair, and well-spoken. She also has a relaxed nature. More than anything, she likes to sit back, and observe, rather than act. Life is like a play for Olivia; she likes to take the audience role, as she watches each event unfold. She's rather easy going around others, and due to her observant nature, she's interested in learning about most individuals she meets.

From her high social standing, she enjoys ballroom dancing, and likes to unwind with a nice, cup of tea. Tea in particular she's oddly passionate about. She knows how to make many types of flavors, and likes to recite fun facts about them. Living in high society also allows her to truly appreciate proper etiquette. On the other hand, because she's quite closed and confided in those social norms, she sometimes has high expectations of individual's mannerisms. Her pet peeve is if others do not meet those expectations. Even with her easygoing nature, disappointment can cause brief turmoil from time to time.

Weakness: Failure is Olivia's biggest fear in life, leading to her blindly pursing perfection upon a bumpy road. She can easily stumble, and experience panic attacks while pursuing this. This is because, while Olivia does not think too much on a stranger's opinion of her. she constantly seeks approval from her family. Olivia's upbringing from nobility means she carries on and represents her family name. This has high expectations brought onto herself in terms of knowledge, and the performance of general tasks. While she does understand her position, it's a weight that can be crushing to bear for her, and can cause her to be anxious. Winning her father's approval and meeting his high expectations was always her goal in her life, and whenever she fails, it's soul-crushing for her, and it can take a long while for her to come back.


History: Olivia was the only daughter born in the distinguished household of de Roosevelt, a household of vampire nobility in Transylvania, Romania in the human world, from seclusion of humans themselves. For hundreds of decades, the de Roosevelts were a few houses that were only second to the royal kingdom itself. Her father, Lazarus de Roosevalt, was an especially strong vampire who was head of this powerful family.

Even as a child, Olivia was set high standards for herself from the arts, knowledge, and general inquiries. This was in preparation for one thing, and that is to have her succeed her father as the new head of the de Roosevelt's family on their ever going quests to surpass the other vampire family houses and climb the social ladder for power. The reason why she joined the prestigious Youkai Academy was also for preparation to succeed her father's name. She aims to be as knowledgeable and as combat oriented as she can, to finally be accepted among her vampire family for succession.
