[SIZE=1][COLOR=DarkSlateBlue]In the great city of the Vatican, home of the Catholic Church, Bishop Johnathan Quill is called forth by the Pope on a mission. A mission to find the legendary Sword of God, Soul Edge.

Tales came from the Crusaders in the East, telling of a great sword that utilized the powers of the gods to strike down those that opposed its wielder. The Bishop, a seasoned warrior, is sent to find it.

He takes with him Balkov, the Russian Giant, a man with the strength of twenty; Fenrir, the Beast Man of Norway, a fierce berserker; Falstaff, the German Madman, a brilliant scientist, but a complete loon; and Mirabelle, the French Seductress, who uses her charms to win.

While in search of the Soul Edge, the five come across several shards of the Weapon. They use these shards to increase their own strengths, being tainted by Soul Edge's evil in the process. They begin a deadly rampage across the world, slaying innocents in persuit of God's power.

The lost Heroes that fought Soul Edge and Nightmare have disappeared during this time. No one knows what has happened to them.

The Bishop, now known as the Bishop of the Morning Star or the Black Bishop among the public, has swept across most of Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.

New warriors seek the power as well...but can they survive the Black Bishop?[/COLOR]

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If you couldn't guess, you'll be playing as the new warriors seeking Soul Edge. You can't be evil per se, that role is taken by Jonathan and his followers. However, you don't have to be a hero. Though you will end up fighting them in the end.

My Guy-

Name: Zeshin Uchiyama
Nickname: The Black Dragon; Hero of Shadow; Ninja-Samurai; Gaijin Samurai

Gender: Male
Appearance: Bears a resemblance to Kilik. Lean and muscular, on the taller side; silver hair, short but spiky; crystal blue eyes; wears black pants and a black shirt
Weapon: Katana
Weapon Name: Yami no Yushi (Hero of Shadow)
Fighting Style: A combination of most sword-fighting styles. This includes Kenpo, Iaijutsu, Ninjitsu, Fencing, and other European Sword-Fighting Styles. It is called Yami-Yushi Ryu, his own style.
Personality: Zeshin is cold and a loner. He follows the ways of the Ninja more than the Samurai. He is also fairly egotistical, as are all my characters it seems. He's got a sharp tongue and a sharp mind, being a brilliant strategist, and really just plain brilliant.
Reason for Seeking Soul Edge/Bio: Zeshin was trained to be a warrior since birth. He first learned the Samurai style from his father, a well known Samurai named Nobuo who was called the Demon from Edo. He then learned the style Iaijutsu. Later, he trained in Ninjitsu sword-fighting, even using other Ninja weapons when it suited him. He traveled to the West Coast of Japan where he met several Westerners and trained with some of them. He left with one warrior to train more in Europe. However, he learned that his Father had been killed in battle outside Edo. He went back as soon as possible and learned from those that had seen the battle that Nobuo had been killed by the Bishop Johnathan Quills. Zeshin decided to seek out Johnathan and the Soul Edge to gain power.

Name: Bishop Johnathan Quills
Nickname: The Black Bishop; Bishop of the Morning Star; Warrior Bishop
Age: 37
Gender: Male
Appearance: Johnathan is stocky and tall, on the muscular side. He has thick black hair which he spikes up. His eyes, once a dark gray, are now red with the Evil of Soul Edge. He wears traditional European-style armor, with a black cape bearing the insignia of a red cross.
Weapon: Bastard Sword
Weapon Name: Dawn Breaker
Fighting Style: The Fighting style of European Knights
Personality: Johnathan is power-hungry, brutal, and merciless. He ruthlessly slaughters thousands in a week, leaving villages broken and destroyed. He has become a demon in human form, like Cervantes or Nightmare.
Reason for Seeking Soul Edge/Bio: Johnathan was raised to become a Bishop, taught the ways of the church. He has most of the Bible memorized, and seeks ever more to learn about God and the ways of Religion. He became Bishop at a young age, due to his great Religious knowledge. He also trained ferverently with various Crusaders and Knights, becoming the Warrior Bishop Quills. Two years ago, he was called upon by the Pope to search for the Sword of God, Soul Edge. He became tainted by its power as he fused it with his own sword, the Dawn Breaker. He now serves the evil Sword, seeking out souls and leaving death in his wake.

Name: Balkov
Nicknames: The Russian Giant; Titan Slayer
Age: 42
Gender: Male
Appearance: Balkov is a massive man, standing 6'5 and being mostly muscle. He is bald, with dark eyes. He is heavily scarred from years of battle. He wears black armored pants and no shirt.
Weapon: Battle Ax
Weapon Name: Glacier
Fighting Style: Ax-Fighting (???)
Personality: Balkov is slow-witted and brutal, the stereotipical muscle man. He cuts down any with no knowledge of Soul Edge instantly, only letting those with knowledge live as long as they can talk. He is known for massacering an entire village in one night...before he became tainted.
Reason for Seeking Soul Edge/Bio: Balkov has always been big, always been strong, and always been violent. He seeks a fight, a challange, an opponent. He trained in the only weapon he saw fit, the Ax. He used his massive blade, Glacier, to massacre an entire village in one night. The blade is called Glacier because it is cold like its owner's heart. Balkov was recruited by the Black Bishop because he was strong, and also a devout Catholic. He has become even more gigantic in his transformation, and has become strong enough to cleave a man in two with one blow.

Name: Fenrir
Nicknames: The Beast Man of Norway; The Wolf; Harbringer
Age: 25
Gender: Male
Appearance: Fenrir is scrawny and lanky. He has long dirty blonde hair that hangs like a mane around his head. His eyes are feral and green. His teeth have become unnaturally long due to the taint, as have his nails which are now more like claws. He wears ragged clothes, shredded from battle and stained with blood.
Weapon: A Hooked Pole-Arm
Weapon Name: Wolf's Fang
Fighting Style: Berserker Style
Personality: Fenrir is feral, psychotic in every sense of the world. He's violent, impulsive, solitary, and merciless, almost more so than Johnathan.
Reason for Seeking Soul Edge/Bio: Fenrir was given his name because a village prophet fortold that the child would bring about the end of the world if he wasn't slain. His parents gave him the name of the legendary Wolf that would swallow the gods, but did not kill him, thinking the prophecy foolish. Even as a child, Fenrir exhibited his animalistic qualities, acting like a beast, picking fights and brutally beating his opponents. He was trained to be a warrior, hopefully releasing his pent up violent energy, but it ultimately just made him more dangerous, allowing him to kill efficiently as opposed to simply brutalizing his opponents. When fighting, he feels no pain, totally engrossed in killing his enemy. He was chosen by Johnathan because he would stop at nothing to gain the Soul Edge. Besides, thinks Johnathan, what's the life of another heretic?

Name: Falstoff
Nicknames: The German Madman; The Mad Doctor; The Bloody Genius
Age: 29
Gender: Male
Appearance: Falstoff is tall and lanky, with stringy brown hair and cold gray eyes. He wears simple pants and a simple shirt, going for simplicity and comfort as opposed to any discernable style. He keeps his left arm wrapped at all times, hiding the metal veins that run through it, proof of the Taint of soul Edge.
Weapon: Rapier
Weapon Name: Faust II
Fighting Style: Modified Fencing
Personality: Falstoff is cold and calculating, a brilliant mind that uses every advantage discernable to win. He is cruel, seeing all life as further reasearch.
Reason for Seeking Soul Edge/Bio: Falstoff was raised in science, destined to turn the tide of human thought and knowledge. When he learned of Soul Edge, he immediately wanted it, to study it, learn of its secrets. He joined Johnathan instantly to further his research. He was chosen because of his brilliance, despite the fact that he was not very religious. His sword, the Faust II, is a companion to the Faust wielded by Siegfired.

Name: Mirabelle (goes by Mira unless in formal locations) Literally meaning 'Of Incredible Beauty' *DaisukeAngel is playing as her*
Nicknames: The French Seductress; The Lady Demon; Lucifer's Concubine
Age: 26
Gender: Female
Appearance: Mirabelle is lithe and attractive. She has long black hair that she keeps in a delicate braid with saphires laced inside of it. Her eyes are a brilliant shade of errie violet that seem to glow behind strands of her hair, proof of her taint. She wears revealing gowns, mostly violets and blue to contrast with her mystifying eyes, cut to allow movement and seduction. She wears intricate bracelets of precious and semi-precious stones, two on each hand, that glitter distractedly during fights, along with the sapphires in her braid. Her face is perfect, high cheekbones, pearl-white teeth, full lips, and thin, rounded eyebrows.
Weapon: Living Sword
Weapon Name: Black Rose
Fighting Style: Living Sword
Personality: Mirabelle is seductive, calculating like Falstoff, merciless like Johnathan, willing to go her all like Fenrir, and brutal like Balkov.
Reason for Seeking Soul Edge/Bio: Mirabelle is a mystery to all. She was a rich woman of power, but joined Johnathan to gain the power of Soul Edge, since she found her life boring. After being tainted by Soul Edge, she dabbled in Alchemy, creating her living sword, the Black Rose. Her skill with the weapon provokes rumors of her relation to Ivy.

Have fun. If someone wants to play as one of the Five, PM me with your request. However, you can't be Johnathan. Sorry. Anyway, enjoy!

Shiguru, in answer to your comments about the inability for one to use fencing with a katana, this is true. My fighter, however, has simply used elements form various styles, not the entire styles themselves. For example, he uses the deception and fluid motion of Ninjitsu, and feinting and speed of fencing, the powerful blows of the broadsword, with most of his style coming from stand Samurai fighting styles. He has simply encorporated these elements into traditional Samurai style, by doing so creating a hybrid form. And I'm afraid the Heihachi thing was done in SCII, and as I said, the Soul *Blank* characters have gone missing. Sorry. Also sorry for any confusion about my fighting style.

Uh, for your first guy... Most western sword styles as well as ninjitsu fighting don't really work with a Katana. Fencing and the use of a Broadsword are two examples as the Katana's weight makes the Broadsword style less effective and it simply CANNOT be used for fencing... sorry.

Character:

Name: Hehachi Mishima... if one can use fencing with a Katana... than the man of the Iron Fist can come to the sixteenth century.
Age: 80
Gender: Male
Appearance: Old, but built. His tough and hard leathery skin makes it's own natural armor from the elements and the sharpest of blades. His white mustache and similarly white hair make him even more dicernable.
Weapon: His own Body
Weapon Name: Hehachi Mishima
Fighting Style: Mishima Karate system.
Personality: Cold, Evil, and powerful Hehachi is calcuilating and lives for fighting. He is disgusted by weakness and admires true strength. He believes nothing is truly sacred and has attempted to kill both his son and his grandson due to them being too dangerous to him. He will become the strongest both in the past and the present.
Bio: Hehachi cut himself yet again on the sould edge fragment only to come back to the time of the sword. With a grin he awaits the chance to fight the strongest fighters out there... and show them the true power of his Iron Fist!
