â??Captain Ayasegawaâ??s team has already left then?â? Saburou asked. â??Yes, he and the Lieutenant from squads 2 through 12 have been dispatched to handle then spirit generators.â? The Captain Commander of the Gotei 13 looked down from the balcony to the trial stage where Rukia Kuchikiâ??s examination was taking place. â??I am keeping Rangiku here to help manage the workload from the squads who are now lacking their second in commands and Rukia was spared because we need to get this vacant captainâ??s seat filled as soon as possible.â? â??A shame you didnâ??t ask me to go on a raid to the human world. Iâ??d love to take another trip to France. Itâ??s much more tranquilâ? Saburou said. â??Yes the Sagawara estate has been very busy with the coming and goings of nobles these daysâ?¦ Almost like they are plotting somethingâ? Momo Hinamori was among the captains that were here to witness the examination and ensure that it went off without a hitch. Chinatsu, Eriko, and Isamo Kuchiki accompanied by a group of guards and servants had also made an appearance this morning to watch Rukia show case her skills before the other captains. Captain Commander Hitsugaya had requested the presence of as many captains at the event as possible. He was worried that something was amiss and wanted as many hands on deck in such an event. â??Have you been spying on us?â? The captain of squad 8 smirked â??If you have been then you should know that we are always up to something. People come and go from our house all the time.â? â??One does not need to spy on your family to know that they are planning to use the political turmoil to elevate their positionâ? Saburou smiled at captain Hinamori â??We are a greedy buchâ? Sending Sagawara should have been considered more. He is the one captain most likely to side with Chinatsu but if he is out in the field he wonâ??t have any hand in the fall out of promoting. I thought keeping him close and under surveillance would be enough but no one in his family has been caught meeting with anyone from any of the parties involved. Which in itself is strange, since the rest of the captains did. Hitsugaya looked over to Saburou â??Yumichikia was sent because his Shikai can render the spirit based weapons the humans have useless without killing the soldiers using them. The goal of his mission is to restore balance, not level the city.â? â??Plus he has been moody ever since Ikkaku died. He has always been much more skilled than he let on but since Arashi took over Squad 11 and Ikkaku pasted he has really been on point. I was surprised he even asked for the recommendation to become captainâ?¦ I always thought he was going to stay in Squad 11.â? Hisagi said. It was pretty public knowledge that during Ichigoâ??s invasion Yumichika was able to defeat him even though he was only a 5th seat at the time and Hisagi was a lieutenant. â??Best to give him something to do instead of watching him try to redecorate the entire Sereitei.â? A sudden drop in temperature ended the conversation. â??Bankai, Hakka no Togameâ? Rukiaâ??s release command reached up to the balcony the captains sat seconds before the white mist blasted through the entire area. As the mist cleared the demonstration mannequins began to crumble. The sound shattering of ice filled the air. â??Another Ice type, how originalâ? Saburou chimed. People seemed to be revealing their bankai in his presence a lot lately. Fumitaka had just told him the night before that the Shihoin family had found a secret stash of old technologies developed by Kisuke Urahara, one of which helped Fumitaka achieve his bankai in only a few days. â??They are completely different abilities, the Comanderâ??s Hyorinmaru creates and shapes massive amounts of ice. Rukiaâ??s lowers the temperature of herself and the surroundings.â? Hinamori countered. â??True, and Rukiaâ??s power makers her almost immune to restraint or physical damage that doesnâ??t completely shatter her body. Iâ??ve seen her refreeze an arm that had been blasted off her torsoâ?¦ Granted it took a lot of work to properly attach it after the fightâ? Renji who had been excited for Rukia to join him as a captain announced proudly â??Hyorinmaru might make enough ice to cover the whole Sereitei but Rukiaâ??s power is the coldest to ever exist.â? Renji smacked the back of Saburouâ??s head. â??Idiotâ? â??Awww donâ??t do that!â? said a frowning Saburou. â??Itâ??s beautiful!â? echoed throughout the arena. Isamo Kuchiki had never seen a Bankai release before and Rukiaâ??s was regarded as the most beautiful of all. â??I have seen enough Lieutenant Kuchiki. Please give me a few days to consider.â? Rukia bowed her head. Hitsugaya got to his feet â??Watch out for her until she is safeâ? Then he flash stepped away. â??Until sheâ??s safe? She lives in the same house as these people. You think she wonâ??t be safe her bankai is activated? We all know she is more than qualified to fill the position. He speaks of urgency to fill the position but then wonâ??t grant it to herâ? Saborou questions. He glanced at the Kuchiki family who had also gotten to their feet and were making their way towards the exit. â??What Shiro meant was, donâ??t let them try to challenge Rukia to a fight right now. I guess the commander was too subtle for you to follow huh?â? The captain of the 5th squad said. Saburou frowned â??Rukiaâ??s bankai is hard to use and after the initial temperature drop she is canâ??t keep it activated for too long. Also the thawing process is time consuming and takes a lot of concentration. She canâ??t fight while doing it. Also even after she is thawed back to normal she canâ??t use her abilities again for a while for fear of damaging her body.â? â??Yeah, we have all seen her in battle before. We know this stuffâ? Renji said. He looked just as confused as Saburou. â??One of the ways to become a captain is to kill the current captain in front of witnesses from the squad. If Shiro had named her captain now itâ??s likely Eriko would have followed her back to the Squad 6 barracks and challenged her for her captainship. Rukia wouldnâ??t be able to use her full strength in battle having just displayed it for us now. Eriko is a Kido master- it would have been a one sided fight with Rukia unable to use her Zanpakuto.â? â??But the captain commander didnâ??t say whether or not she got the position. He will probably wait to announce it until Rukiaâ??s back to full force.â? Hisagi pitched in. Renji and Saburou looked at each other with blank expressions. â??Right and delaying keeps Chinatsu in check because she doesnâ??t know whether or not she is now the captain. Any plan that she has incase Rukia does get it will be on hold until they know for sure. Even the Kuchikiâ??s wonâ??t challenge the might of the Gotei 13 without the support of some of the captains and we all turned her down.â? Momo shot a dirty look at Saburou. She continued â??Thatâ??s why he left in a hurry. So he didnâ??t have to speak with her. He probably wonâ??t return to his office for a few days eitherâ?¦ or will be in uninterruptable meetings until he thinks Rukia will be strong enough to deal with whatever Chinatsu throws at her.â? â??I get itâ? Renji said proudly â??We are staying to guard Rukia until she has finished thawing and gets her power back. Then the Kuchikiâ??s wonâ??t have anyone that can beat herâ?¦ except another captainâ? Now Renji was giving Saburou the dirty look. â?? so WE are ALL going to watch Rukia for a while. Combat or assassination is really the only way Chinatsu can deal with Rukia, her shikai makes poisoning her impossible.â? â??And Rukia can handle assassins or a direct challengeâ?¦ so we will watch her until sheâ??s thawed and ready to use her bankai again. I got yaâ? Saburou said. It was annoying that the others thought that Chinatsu had gotten to him already when in reality his family was not sure who to back, Chinatsu, Rukia, or Fumitaka. Every prevalent family in the Seireitei were trying to hedge their bets on which one of the three contenders would actually get run of the family and its resources when everything was all said and done. I suppose it makes sense that they all suspect me as the one captain out of 12 that would go against the Comanderâ??s wishes to promote Rukia. I probably would fight her if it meant my familyâ??s future was secured. He looked own at Rukia, Renji and Hisagi were now by her side congratulating her. â??So Captain Hinamori, should we go and guard our soon to be peer?â? He flashed an over the top smile at Momo and flash stepped down to join the others.
A Shwa/Darth Vectis collaboration Present... Howl Betrayalâ?¦ Everything our clan has fought for, what we strive to protect and keep sacred had fallen under that single word. Blood and tears, sweat and sacrifice were all but futile in the end, or so it seemed. But the fighting spirit raged within each and every one of us who still fought to make sure justice and peace would flourish upon the land, so their offspring and future generations to come would only think of the past events of war and death as a chilling bedtime story. Unfortunately for them, it would be more than such a passing thought; words to bring fear would be a reality. Our numbers are little now, we lick our wounds and mourn the fallenâ?¦but so many fell with one wordâ?¦betrayal. I start this too far ahead; my name is Sebastian Louis LeBlank. I am 1014 years old, and I am a werewolf. Donâ??t be so startled, I am not the only one of my kind to roam this planet we protect. Though, there were thousands before me at one point, times were happier then. Now, in the land of North America, as they renamed it, there are only 100 of my kind left. Scattered about the lands and keeping a watchful eye over the human populous as they go about their lives, never knowing a fierce predator keeps a close, very close eye on them to ensure their safety. The rest of the original pack I ran with centuries ago still remain in the many lands or Europe, and some moving to Australia and Canadaâ?¦even as far as Thailand. But thatâ??s a story for another time. During the human French Revolution, our clan allied ourselves with other were-creatures to fight against a powerful necromancer, his evil knew no bounds, and his blood lust never ending. Others of our kind fell to his minions upon surprise and even in the bright light of day; I admit my fault for not dealing with the matter before it got out of control. By the time all the factions gathered to strike, we were stricken down at our core, from the inside out. When the impossible seemed to rise in the horizon, hope extended its hand of assistance from unknown creatures we had never encountered before. The Vampires, the Ladies of the Lands, the Circle of Magi, and the Dead Zone Users. The english tongue for them today however, are Psychics. It was not the easiest of transitions to work with unknown creatures, but as time progressed we became family to one another. Our kinds have mated with one another to create more powerful creatures of our race, it was enough to put up a fight against the evil one. For a long time while the dark one slumbered and plotted his attack, things on earth were peaceful and almost a dream life, no one would have ever guessed it was simply a mirage. We all knew the value of what we had close and dear to us, that is why we must fight to make sure it would remain for years to come. At the Red Moons even of battle, we gathered all as one against the dark ones forces. A single howl from my father rallied the troops to war, and war we brought. At the peak of battle, thatâ??s when it happenedâ?¦betrayal. I lost my children and wife that fateful night, and our numbers dwindled on all sides of our allied brethren. As I cupped my wifeâ??s head in my hand, she spoke to me softly before she emanated a precious pearl white shine from her body into dark and bloody battle fieldâ?¦and then we won. Itâ??s been many years, and I still cannot remember what exactly happened that we defeated the dark one; I only know we survived and protected mankind from this invasion at a heavy cost. Alliances shattered and trust betrayed, even centuries after the fact, we remain hesitant friends with other factions, but remain in perpetual peace with one another as decreed by The Oath. Its been so many years, I wonder if any of them even remember as I do... I miss her so, and those of my kin. But now, I raise a family of wolves here in the United States, some Iâ??ve found with my sons, others whose organic genes could survive the transformation of turning into a werewolf and join our cause. With each transformation, they each bring a special gift to the table to add to our fight if the need should ever arise again. WE protect the human populous from creatures of the night that dare pray on them for a meal, making sure our exsistance remains in their fantasies of long ago. I pray that it does not come to times as it has before, but I am no fool to deception and surprised. They are my new family, my only family, and this time there will be no screw ups to happen. Never again would I want to relive the sorry and despair, and I would never wish that upon my new children as well. With every transformation, they remind me why I still keep vigilant and why I cannot let go of the past. They howl. Welcome to Howl Welcome to Howl one and all, this is a Mature based RP that will include blood, violence, and all that fun stuff that you know so well. This is a werewolf based story line with some added twists and turns to make the story and your own character stand out in their own way while contributing. The introduction is kept somewhat mysterious in detail, as that will be explained more during the progression of the RP and more in the background section when itâ??s up and running. I will be taking control of several NPCâ??s (Such as Sebastianâ??s) during the RP to explain the story and to help move things along when needed, however if youâ??d care to contribute to that as well please feel free to ask me and we can discuss in further detail. Here is the sign up requirements: Name: Any name will do, but try to steer clear of Asian/anime themed names since this story originated in Europe. Age: Weâ??re talking werewolf age and human age. No more than 500 years unless approved by me. Most of the NPCâ??s will be 500+ since they would be from the original clan that was present during the Great War. Gender: Have a ball Appearance: This would require 2, either picture or description. I would need your Human appearance and your werewolf appearance Personality: Looking for all kinds, keep it civil and realistic though Ability: This is mostly for the human aspect when youâ??re in human form. Werewolves are animals by nature. Our physical strength senses, speed and endurance are already increased, but since the mating between the different factions there is room for something more. Can you read peopleâ??s thoughts? Command the elements? Fly? Whatever the ability, itâ??s limited in human form, however much more powerful in your werewolf form. Back Story: Born into it? Volunteered? Found by Sebastian? Just be somewhat detailed, as I will be unraveling the story throughout the RP, I would like your story as well. But what Iâ??m looking for is how you were persuaded to transform into a werewolf and join the clan. I have reserved the â??being forcedâ? option for one user, because they will be a major center point in the RP that effects all of us. Snippet: Just a small sample, just what you're doing in human or wolf form. We all live in the same house (think twilight vampires) so if you wanna try that it'll show your versatility
