[COLOR=SlateGray][SIZE=1]The Sengoku Jidai.

A time of strife. A time of war. A time of heroes like the world has never seen. Gods stood atop the earth, commanding the winds and earth with their blades and carving new empires single-handedly. These gods were known as Samurai, from the ruthless Oda Nobunaga, to the wily Toyotomi Hideyoshi, and the ever-patient Tokugawa Ieyasu. The stained the soil of Japan red, and tore free of the chains of history to forge a new age.

But this is not about Japan. This is not about Earth.

This is Sengoku.

In a far off land, in a parallel reality, there is a great sprawling empire called Sengoku. It lays home to two castes - the Full Bloods and the Half-Bloods. Full Bloods are just normal people, but Half-Bloods have adapted the technology of Sengoku into their bodies, becoming stronger, faster, and more durable as they see fit. The Half-Bloods view themselves as better, while the Full Bloods call themselves pure.

Sitting atop the throne of Sengoku is a man called Tokugawa Ieyasu. He is a titan of a man, the Half-Blood King, and a terrible warrior in his own right. Full Bloods despise him, and Half-Bloods fear him for his cold efficiency in battle. Sitting at his right hand is the towering spear-man, the Invincible Tadakatsu, and at his left is Hanzo the Shadow, a deadly assassin who will do anything for his master. Anyone who tried to attack Tokugawa would first have to cut through his guards, and then the masterful warrior himself. View would dare try.

But there are some who are willing to go against the Emperor. Half and Full Bloods alike are amassing their strength, battling in the streets to test their mettle in perparation for taking on Tokugawa. They wait in the shadows, honing their skills, and fighting the strongest warriors they can find. Some names just filter into obscurity, but others stand high above the rest.

[B]Nobunaga[/B], the Demon of Owari District, rumored as being the most cut-throat warrior in existence, whose wife [B]Nou-hime[/B] is said to be as deadly as he. [B]Shingen[/B], the Tiger of Kai, a wise and clever warrior who is the eternal rival of Kenshin. [B]Kenshin[/B], the Dragon of Echigo, a self-proclaimed war god and arch-nemesis of Shingen. [B]Hideyoshi[/B] the Trickster, perhaps the most deviously brilliant man alive in Sengoku. [B]Okuni[/B] of Izumo, a beautiful priestess with hidden strength. Crimson [B]Sanada[/B] and the [B]Ten Braves[/B], a brave young man and his ten ninja bodyguards. [B]Mitsuhide[/B] the Fallen Angel, a tragic man with a chip on his shoulder and a score to settle with Nobunaga.

And the numerous others that join them in greatness. The players are all ready, and the king is waiting. Will the Half-Blood King rule forever, or will he be dethroned by his greatest enemies? Only time will tell.

In Sengoku, War is Law.

Be ready.[/SIZE][/COLOR]

[COLOR=SlateGray][SIZE=1]The Empire of Sengoku is an alternate reality version of Japan during the Sengoku area. However, aside from the tumultuous nature and the major players involved, Sengoku bares little resemblance at all to it's counter-part in our Universe. Sengoku is a futuristic city, cast into ruin by years and years of struggle and war between Half and Full Bloods. Grimy and depressing, it is a world not for the weak to survive. One must be strong to get ahead.

Preparing to fight in Sengoku are numerous great warriors, all of whom exist in our world in some form or fashion. As such, characters involved MUST be based on these historical figures. If you need help for ideas, or just want further research, I suggest either[URL=http://www.samurai-archives.com/index.html]this site[/URL] or Wiki-ing the Sengoku Era and looking at some of the people mentioned.

The nature of Sengoku is different from Japan's. Warriors in Sengoku can tap into much greater reserves of power than ours could ever dream of achieving, especially the Half-Bloods. However, while Half-Bloods can be incredibly strong, or fast, or tap into incredible sensory abilities thanks to upgrades, they lose the ability to tap into the power of their life force to as great an extent as Full Bloods. Keep that in mind when deciding the nature of your character.

Now, many women didn't have as much power during the Sengoku era as the men, the vast majority really. However, the same is not so in Sengoku. For ideas of women, I've mentioned above Okuni and Nouhime, but there are also daughters, wives, and mistresses to go wild with. And I won't mind a few genderswaps here and there, either, to even the ranks, if you so choose.

Oh, and a note: anyone from the Sengoku period is playable. They don't just have to be the ones around during Tokugawa's time.

SIGN-UP

[B]Name:[/B] Pretty simple, since you're taking the names of others. For feminized male characters, please take on a more feminine name as well. If you were, say, making a female Mitsuhide, perhaps Mitsuko. Etc.
[B]Nickname:[/B] They got a nickname? Oh, and don't feel you have to use the ones above. They were just...ideas.
[B]Gender:[/B] Simple.
[B]Age:[/B] Try to keep is reasonable.
[B]Half/Full:[/B] Half-Blood or Full-Blood?
[B]Appearance:[/B] Feel free to give your person a face to match their personality - you really don't have to go on the portaits of them available, since most of those aren't...great, anyway.
[B]Weapon of Choice:[/B] The standard katana? A spear? Chain-scythe? Handgun?
[B]Fighting Style:[/B] Just a brief rundown on how your character fights, with maybe a few specific techniques, too.
[B]Personality:[/B] Now, here's where it gets tricky. Try and keep your character at least resembling the original person vaguely. I know, it's hard, but most sites will list at least some characteristics they had. Go from there.

I'm not going to make you do a Bio or Character Sample, since I'm feeling nice, and besides, I'm already making you do research.

Oh, and here's my character:

[B]Name:[/B] Date Masamune
[B]Nickname:[/B] The One-Eyed Dragon
[B]Gender:[/B] Male
[B]Age:[/B] 22
[B]Half/Full:[/B] Full Blood
[B]Appearance:[/B] Masamune?s most prominent feature is his one eye, the other having been lost to disease as a child. He pulled it out himself. His good eye is a piercing blue, with a slightly elongated pupil. He has messy black hair that he usually keeps tied back out of his face. He?s a fairly handsome, if sharp-featured man, with a strong jaw and sharp cheekbones. He?s on the shorter side, admittedly, and fairly lean, but he more than makes up for it in skill and personality. His dress is usually a pair of plain black pants and a black shirt inscribed with the bright blue crescent moon emblem.
[B]Weapon of Choice:[/B] Twin katana, housed in sheathes designed to make them look like bokken. He calls them, appropriately, Migitsuki and Hidaritsuki, or Right Moon and Left Moon. Usually, he keeps the blades locked away in the sheathes, unless he is pushed to use real force. The twin swords were forged by the legendary Muramasa, and have been crafted so sharp and light that he can use the wind itself to cut.
[B]Fighting Style:[/B] Called the Two Moons style of kenjutsu, Masamune is devoted entirely to offense in his fighting. He claims that he never evades and never defends, every move simply being a way to get closer to striking his opponent. His fighting is fast, with quick strikes from both swords. Some of his techniques include the powerful Falling Moon, a one-sword drop, and the Double Barrel Crescent, a dual sliding cut.
[B]Personality:[/B] In a word, hot-blooded. Masamune lives for conquest and the fight, a relentless dynamo on the battlefield. He states that every fight should be fought ?As if your last and your greatest,? so you will never be disappointed. As such, he always pulls out all the stops, no matter who his opponent may be, whether it?s a no-name Half-Blood or the great Demon, Nobunaga. His entire world outlook is like this, and he always lives fearlessly and to the fullest, finding what he wants and going for it.

Well that's about it. So, go wild, and have fun.[/SIZE][/COLOR]

[B]Name:[/B] Yukimura Sanada

[B]Nickname:[/B] Slumbering Dragon of Echigo

[B]Gender:[/B] Male

[B]Age:[/B] 19

[B]Half/Full:[/B] Full Blood

[B]Appearance:[/B] Yukimura is slight in apperance. He is hardly what one would look for in a battle hardend warrior. His hair is black and just beneath shoulder length that he wears down. He has fair skin with a fine tan. If anything he looks like a pretty boy. He wears a blue kimono with a six coin crest on the back, with a matching pants set. He usually goes around bare foot. The only battle marks he has are on his upper arm and back. These are marks left over from his time in the lost land of Kudoyama.

[B]Weapon Choice:[/B] He carries the katana that belonged to his father, who dies in Kudoyama. The sword has a blue scabard decorated with a red dragon that wraps the scabard. The guard is silver with a floral pattern, the hilt is red laquerd wood with black leather wrapings. The blade is 32 inches, the hilt's 10 inches. The blade is made of a high grade steel. The sword is called Ryuushin, Dragons Crest. His father claimed it was forged by the reverded Masamune.

[B]Fighting Style:[/B] He is of the Sacred Fire style of kenjutsu. He studied during his time in Echigo as their prisoner. It was during his time here that he was given the nick name that follows him to this day. His style utilizes fast and overwhealming strikes. The purpose is to make the enemy feel as if there being comsumed. It's said that the most skilled warriors can actually generate heat with there strikes, causing the enemy to become even more disoriented. Sword play is quick, leg work is strong and sturdy.

[B]Personality:[/B] A laid back person. He doesn't seem like the type to cause trouble, nor does he seem the type to even enjoy trouble. He can usually be found drinking about town. Womanizing is another past time for this fine fella. But underneath all this shameful behavior lies his true self. There is only one word to describe the true Yukimura Sanada, monster. His sensei in Echigo once said that deep within his humble soul rested the soul of an unstoppable monster. He didn't know the half of it. He is a laxed leader, which often leads his men to question his reason, but he is fast to act and is driven by an unstoppable ambition. But above all, he despises Tokugawa Ieyasu with every fiber of his being.

[B]Name-[/B] Honda Tadakatsu
[B]Nickname-[/B] The Invincible
[B]Gender-[/B] Male
[B]Age-[/B] 34
[B]Half/Full-[/B] Half-Blood

[B]Appearance-[/B] Slightly shorter than his master, Tadakatsu is a monster of a man beside himself. He was known for his bright and flashy clothing in and out of battle but he was reputed for his antler-helmet that he wore in battle and during ceremonies, festivals, and the like. He was never one for typical outwear and so, would always be seen colorful clothing wherever he went.

One couldn?t say that he was the handsomest but they couldn?t say that he was the ugliest; Tadakatsu never won people over with his appearance but with his unyielding personality and military prowess. Yet, when people looked at him they found a general with a clean-cut topknot, trimmed beard, and strangely showered body. He, unlike most men, was the cleanest man anyone could have met- if they had the chance.

In honor of Tadakatsu, an artist from the mountains of Askusa had painted a portrait of him. [URL=http://homepage.ntlworld.com/neil_james.bruce/Honda-copy.jpg]Click Here[/URL].

[B]Weapon of Choice-[/B] Tadakatsu wields the mighty Tonbogiri, one of three legendary spears created by the swordsmith Masamune. Respectively, it is called ?Dragonfly Cutter? for its amazing precision and never-dulling blade. Myth has it that the Tonbogiri?s name was given to it when a dragonfly landed on its blade and cut it in two quicker than anyone had seen. He also holds with him a simple katana given to him by Tokugawa as a reward for the many battles he?s been in alongside him. Though simple, the katana serves Tadakatsu greatly in battle, just as the Tonbogiri does.

[B]Fighting Style-[/B] Sōjutsu is the art of fighting with a yari and because the Tonbogiri is a type of yari- Japanese spear- Tadakatsu uses the style of Sōjutsu used for mounted and dismounted combat. He uses all styles of Sōjutsu, but is seen using an adapted version of Hozoin-ryu. An ancient poem says: ?It can be a spear to thrust. It can be a pole-sword to cleave. It can be a sickle to slash. In any case, it never fails to miss the target.? Taking the poem and combining it with his fighting, Tadakatsu has yet to be wounded.

[B]Personality-[/B] Tadakatsu is one of Tokugawa Ieyasu?s finest generals, if not [i]the[/i] finest. He is a terror in battle, a calamitous warrior who is brave, loyal, and filled with perseverance regardless of the disadvantages his army or he might have. He disregards all odds and tramples the weak before him, destroying those who are defiant. Tadakatsu is a man who lives life to the fullest but also stops to smells the roses, he is also a man who stops at nothing to gain what he knows is rightfully his.[/center]

[color=darkslategray][size=1][b]Name.:[/b] Oda Nobunaga.

[b]Nickname.:[/b] The Obsidian Destroyer, the Unscarred, Severfang, and Shoui the Heartless.

[b]Gender.:[/b] Male.

[b]Age.:[/b] 27.

[b]Half/Full.:[/b] Full.

[b]Apperance.:[/b] Oda is a man of quick wit and posture. Slim built and lithe, able to slide through the cracks, he hides immense strength. A metal gauntlet serves as his left arm, which was never there in the first place from birth. It serves him well as a weapon and as an actual prosthetic hand. Deep crimson eyes and a wolfish stare entrances everyone that looks on, and he's as mystifying as a fox. He also usually never wears a shirt, preferring to wear the abstract tattoo on his chest instead. A metal collar adorns the Unscarred's neck with two links and a broken link, which betrays his reputation as the Unscarred. Often he wears bandages as a tribute to those that have died in battle to him. He may be ruthlesss on a battlefield, but he has a sense of honor and respect.

A photograph was taken of him not long ago. [url=http://img100.imageshack.us/img100/865/albel04211zo.jpg]Click here.[/url]

[b]Weapon of Choice.:[/b]

[u]Black Grasp of the Destroyer:[/u] The metal prosthetic he wears is one of his main weapons. Built out of solid steel and large chunks of obsidian, this has given him a notorius reputation for ripping people to shreds on a field of war. This is also the cause of the name Severfang, as of the many life lines and familes he's strung apart from those that have willingly attacked him.

[u]Soulflayer:[/u] The katana he wields in his right hand is also a useful weapon. Plain and simple, it is nevertheless a sharp and stainless weapon. Rimmed with a touch of obsidian crystals and adorned with a pristine black diamond on the hilt, the sharkskin used gives Oda an excellent grip and is relisistant to the stain of blood.

[b]Personality.:[/b] Cold, calculating, fearless. The true warrior, he says little and does much. Actions may speak louder than words, but the words that Oda says are often much more meaningful than any others spoken. Able to silence a room with a simple word, he commands respect and athority.

He doesn't care much for anyone around him, not even his wife Nohimie. He took her for convienience, and maybe he has some love and respect for her, but if he does, it's deeply buried. Love to a woman is nothing next to the love of the battle for him.[/color][/size]

[SIZE=1][B]Name:[/B] Nohime
[B]Nickname:[/B] None
[B]Gender:[/B] Female
[B]Age:[/B] 23
[B]Half/Full:[/B] Full
[B]Appearance:[/B] [URL=http://www.deviantart.com/view/1580223/][I]Nohime[/I][/URL]
Picture done by [URL=http://telegrafixs.deviantart.com/][B]telegraphixs[/B][/URL]

[B]Weapon of Choice:[/B] Because Nohime is a woman all about quiet and serenity, she isn't one to use flashy or heavy weapons. She is always seen to be carrying a beautiful [URL=http://www.censiasimports.com/image/12720420.jpg][I]paper umbrella[/I][/URL], in which a thin, light sword is hidden.

[B]Fighting Style:[/B] Nohime has grace about her when she fights. Her calm personality shows through and she almost seems to dance as she kills an enemy, usually trying to make it quick and painless. She is, however, at quite a disadvatge if she has to fight multiple enemies. She is fast, but due to the weight of her sword, it isn't good for parrying attacks by stronger weapons.

[B]Personality: [/B] Little is known about Nohime because she prefers to keep to herself. However, there are many rumours about her that lead people to wild and clashing opinions. Some say that she is a spy for her father, relaying information about Nobunaga back to him and this is a reason why she is so secretive. Others say that she was forced into marriage with Nobunaga for political reasons, which is why she seems so stern and cold around him.

She herself does not know how she feels. Her marriage is one of blood and fighting, with hardly any romantic substance to it at all. While she will carry out her duty as a wife to Nobunaga, she doesn't have to like him for it. A polite and quietly confident woman, Nohime prefers to do things by herself, her own way, before letting someone decide things for her.

[B]Sorry, Spence, but you've got me as a wife for now.[/B][/SIZE]

[COLOR=Teal][SIZE=1][B]Name:[/B] Toku-hime (Princess Toku of Oda)
[B]Nickname:[/B] Dragon?s Breath, Masked Candle, Demon?s Daughter, Half-blood Whore
[B]Gender:[/B] Female
[B]Age:[/B] 18
[B]Half/Full:[/B] Full-Blood
[B]Appearance:[/B] see attached below: 1-Toku-hime; 2-"Demon's Daughter"

[B]Weapon of Choice:[/B] [I]Kiraichi[/I] ? an elongated katana that has been modified exactly to Toku-hime?s specifications. A construction of technology provided by her father-in-law Tokugawa Ieyasu, Kiraichi is a large, oddly-shaped katana that has a series of ?capillaries? that run through the metal of the blade. These capillaries are all connected to a reservoir in the specialized handle, and run out through thousands of invisible, microscopic tips that line the edge of the blade. The reservoir holds a liquid mixture of highly-combustible materials, which run through the capillaries throughout the blade, and then penetrate and spread into the victim?s body via the circulatory system and blood each time the victim is cut. Just one little spark from clashing weapons, and the victim is engulfed in an all-consuming inferno, both internal and external. It is this horrible method of killing that has earned Toku-hime the nickname ?Dragon?s Breath.? Kiraichi can be translated to ?Hateful Blood?, or ?Hate of One Thousand.?

[B]Fighting Style:[/B] Trained by both Hanzo the Shadow, and the Invincible Tadakatsu, Toku-hime has a fighting style that simply changes and adapts to her opponent with the fluidity of water, but one that is always ready to consume and engulf her enemy with explosive force. Like a violent wildfire, Toku-hime rips and cleaves through her enemies like lightning, leaving only the smoking remains of an inferno in the wide wake of her slaughter. Just like nature itself, she spares no one when in her uncontrollable state of rage, letting death feed the burning hatred of her life. One can only be fascinated by the sickening efficiency with which she uses Kiraichi. There is nothing beautiful or graceful about her dance with death ? it is always a bloodbath, filled with screams and the putrid scent of burning, bubbling flesh. However, Toku-hime herself seems to come out always unscathed; any blood or grime marring the smooth skin of the princess is always that of her smoldering victims.

[B]Personality:[/B] Toku-hime is a largely troubled but extremely brilliant and talented young individual. Officially she is the daughter of Oda Nobunaga and his concubine Kitsune. However, because of the young age of Nobunaga, there was much speculation about Toku-hime?s true parentage, and rumors abounded of Nobunaga?s father, Oda Nobuhide, taking advantage of one of his son?s concubines and conceiving a last child before his death. While the rumors were publicly denied, Toku-hime had close to no contact or relation to her ?father,? Nobunaga, despite being the daughter of his favorite concubine. A very bright and sensitive child, even that small amount of neglect deeply affected her psyche, and shaped her into the individual she is today.

She was married at the age of five to Tokugawa Ieyasu?s son Nobuyasu, also five at the time, in an effort to bring about a peace treaty between the Full and Half-Bloods. Transferring households at such a young age, much of her education and life was spent in the power and influence of the Tokugawa?s. Despite at first being scorned as a Full-Blood, soon her wit and charm won over the Half-Blood King, and she was eventually accepted and doted on. She was given the best of educations, and became an expert in both court politics and martial combat, surpassing her husband early on in knowledge and cunning. In fact, Toku-hime became the favored child of Tokugawa Ieyasu, and he often joked that she should have been born his son.

The peace that had been tried for did not last, and Toku-hime grew very used to the constant fighting and battles between her two fathers. Despite her maturity, there was still mental strain which unconsciously affected her, and she began to separate and compartmentalize the majority of her emotions and feelings. After her first battle, in which she received Kiraichi from Tokugawa, it became evident that there were two very different sides to Toku-hime, emphasized by her Full-Blood life force.
On one side of Tokuhime?s personality the graceful princess is full of brilliant charm and wisdom, with appealing charisma and magnetism as an individual. Reason and balance are fully on her side, and she is an incomparable strategist. On the other side, the princess is transformed into the dangerous and frightening ?Demon?s Daughter,? wielding Kiraichi with a deadly finesse and sickening fury. Hatred is the only light in her eyes, mirroring her enjoyment as she watches her enemies erupt in flames. There is also an obvious physical change as a result of an overflow of life force, darkening the shades of her fair complexion, hair, and eyes, as shadows of the past overtake her.

In this bloody war, Toku-hime already knows that she cannot stay with the Half-Bloods, despite her childhood being spent with them. Blood is much too thick, and she realizes that eventually she will have to leave the Tokugawa?s, or risk her life. However, in no way will she return to Oda Nobunaga, the father that her hate is based upon. She does not know where to place her loyalty, although for now she resides in the court of the Half-Blood King, her haven still?but not for long.[/SIZE][/COLOR]

[COLOR=#35425E][SIZE=1][b]Name:[/b] Ueno Suzume
[b]Nickname:[/b] The Second Brave
[b]Gender:[/b] Female
[b]Age:[/b] 24
[b]Half/Full:[/b] Full-Blood

[b]Appearance:[/b] Suzume in [URL=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v487/meoi/siki5.jpg][COLOR=#656446][b]ninja uniform[/b][/COLOR][/url] and in [url=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v487/meoi/back5.jpg][COLOR=#656446][b]disguise[/b][/COLOR][/url].
[i]props to [url=http://www.interq.or.jp/japan/hosystem/]BOTUGAEMAKI[/url][/i]

[b]Fighting Style:[/b] Koga-ha Sato-ryu Ninjutsu is one of the most comprehensive ninjutsu styles, combining both the tried-and-tested Koga ninja arts with the deadly Nanban Sato-style kempo. This ryu-ha emphasizes on mastery of advanced weapon tactics, as well as various forms of unarmed combat, invisibility and sabotage.

[b]Weapon of Choice:[/b] Suzume has always favored the romanticism of unarmed combat over the use of melee and range weapons. But when taking out targets up close is not an option, a sniper rifle* named Hisui and the traditional Koga strings always get the job done.

[b]Personality:[/b] Suzume shares her Sanada's love for good liquor and apparent distaste for trouble. Generally good-natured and somewhat rowdy, she maintains a good relationship with and among the other Braves, and with a little charisma, she can easily win the confidence of the commonfolk. Her zeal in protecting her charge would only show itself in battle; the rest of the time, she relies on his skills to defend himself. She stays by Yukimura's side as a guarantor to the alliance between Sanada and the 8 ruling clans of Koga, and following true ninja fashion, her commitment to the Dragon of Echigo is always second to fealty to the Koga.


*I read ?futuristic? somewhere in the OP and figured that my character could get away with a sniper rifle. :3[/SIZE][/COLOR]

[b]Name:[/b] Musashi Miyamoto

[b]Nickname:[/b] The Saint of Swords, Kensei, The Legend

[b]Gender:[/b] Male

[b]Age:[/b] 21

[b]Half/Full:[/b] Full-Blood, Musashi would never sell himself short with bodily enhancements. He will prove himself the greatest alone, and without the help of anyone or thing.

[b]Appearance:[/b] [URL=http://users.adelphia.net/~gojira/musashi.jpg]The Saint of Swords[/URL]

Musashi has a generally messy appearance most of the time. He refuses to fix his hair in a Samurai's top knot and he rarely bathes and changes his clothing. There are many rumors as to why he does this. The two biggest being either he's just a disgusting person, or that he uses his appearance to throw his opponents off his true ability. He prefers plain clothing when he dresses and wishes to be known not for his looks, but for his skill alone.

[b]Weapon of Choice:[/b] Musashi normally uses a hand-carved Bokken in combat, as he saves his two true weapons for only the most important battles. These would be his katana, Phoenix Talon, and his wakizashi, Phoenix Feather. No one has ever seen the blades of his true weapons, or atleast, no one still living has. It is said his blades were forged by the Gods, due to his skill with them.

[b]Fighting Style:[/b]

It is said that Musashi is undefeated in a show of swords, defeating most of his opponents using nothing more than bokkens, which he carves in his spare time. However, in his search for the greatest form of swordsmanship, Musashi has taken into his mind the usage of both his battle Katana and his ceremonial Wakizashi in unison.

It is, however, rare for him to use this style unless in a serious battle. It is said that Musashi defeats his opponents not with swords, but through the usage of physcological intereference and the usage of every resource around him. This would explain his using of the wakizashi in battle, aswell with his entire body. Kicks and punches are not uncommon weapons for Musashi. Many called his style unrefined and incorrect, however, many of those people are dead.

His fighting style is fast and constantly moving. His body is in constant flowing motion, waiting, perceiving his opponent's movements, striking out at blinding speeds and with an intense amount of force. In a large battle, he is known to run amongst the warriors, striking down dozens in mear seconds as he rushes through out the battle field. It is said that he resembles a demon, or a ravenous beast during war.

[b]Personality:[/b]

Musashi is an enigma of a man. He claims no allegiance in the current state of war. His reasons for fighting are strictly personal, and those reasons are none other than to become the strongest warrior in this period of turmoil and war. Musashi thrives in combat, and his highest priority is to prove to himself and others that he is the finest swordsman and warrior in the world. To do this, Musashi has decided to go after Tokugawa Ieyasu and his massive army alone. He allies himself with no one, and wishes not to trouble himself with the politics of the land. Musashi is a simple man, but never the less a genius of war. He is ready to enter the battle field alone, and hunt down the officers of each army, one by one, in order to make his name known.... He has no fear.

Apart from his drive to be the greatest, Musashi is said to be a generally unpleasant man to be around. His habits are rude and uncommon for those assuming the cultured status of Samurai. He bathes infrequently and his body is riddeled with horrible scars from battle and a short bout with eczema he had as a child. He refuses to wear his hair in the traditional Samurai top-knot style and refuses to follow most of the common laws of Bushido, due to his lack of care for politics. Many would say he is selfish, but he is undeniably powerful and insightful in the subject of everyday life and swordsmanship. It is clear that he emobodies the most primal and animalistic qualities of the human persona. He acts on what many call instinct, and what others his true emotions. This draws both negative and positive attention from those around him.

Most have labled him a savage vagrant. Others have labeled him a man with a true grasp of life. Musashi believes either could be right. He cares little for others opinions of him, for his only goal is the realization of his dreams of becoming the best.

[b]OOC:[/b] Please do inform me of any problems with my sign up, as this RP is fascinating me. If Musashi is bad for this, then I have another character that I am ready to use, and may be better for the era, but I prefer Musashi more and thought it would be interesting to have a rogue character. Also, I know more about Miyamoto Musashi than any other person in Japanese history. Also, it would seem since this is an alternative history, a slight change in his placement would be alright.[/color][/size]

[COLOR=SlateGray][SIZE=1]Just popping in to let you know I haven't forgotten about this or anything. I'm leaving sign-ups open until the 30th, and will start the game the following day, if not on the 30th.

Before then, though, there are just a few things I want to adress. The Boss, playing as Musashi is perfectly fine. Like I said, anyone from the whole Sengoku period is fine, not just those around with Tokugawa. Delta, you're also good with your sniper-rifle. It'll be interesting to see how someone with more modern weaponry handles against the swordsmen, methinks. Aizen, don't forget to fill in your personality, I wouldn't want to have to leave you in the dust.

Ålpha-Æpsilon and mushrumluver, I'm afraid both of you don't look up to par right now. Ålpha-Æpsilon, your sign-up has numerous grammatical and spelling errors, and I'm not even sure what is going on with your personality. Also, shape-changing personality swap? No. Address those concerns, or you're out, I'm afraid. And mushrumluver, unless you can site me a source where Mitsuki Yokohama is from, I'm going to have to veto you immediately. And that's only ONE issue I have with your sign-up, your over-the-top techniques being another. Tone it down, and remember that these characters are supposed to be based on [B]actual historical people[/B].[/SIZE][/COLOR]

Name: Allanon Zephant
Nickname: Black Mask, Dark, Keeper os Souls
Gender: Male
Age: 20
Half/Full: Full

Appearance: 6'4", 200lbs. He has long black hair that sweeps down his back and appears to have a blood red sheen when struck by the glaring sun. His eyes are a misty grey, almost to the point of being completely white. While in the company of humans, he always wears a gleaming, smooth black mask that completely conceals his facial features. This is because of the fact that his beauty is too great and terrible to behold, causing women to go crazy with love and longing, and men to become jealous and mad with anger and fear. He is simply too stunning for other humans to gaze upon or even catch a glimpse of his face, that?s the reason why he conceals himself in the mask of warm darkness.

His skin is a light brownish hue, pure and free of all blemishes. His body is tall, lean, and has a toned muscular frame. His body feels as hard as steel, though his movements are as fluid as water. His fingers are long, smooth, and slender, almost feminine except for their size. He wears a tight black suit, enshrouded by a large blood red cape that cloaks his whole body. He wears a ruby amulet around his neck, almost seeming to contain a burning dragon within its depths. He has long slender legs that don?t seem to contain much power, but looks are ever so deceiving. His shoulders are only of medium spread, not too wide and not too narrow. A small golden ring graces his right hand, a single perfect diamond, and his initials engraved on the inside of the ring in a foreign white gold lettering. He wears a pair of black boots that never seem to wear out.

Weapon of choice: He usually uses hand to hand combat to defeat his opponents but when the time comes for it, Allanon does not hesitate to reveal his mastery of blades.
His weapon of choice is a pair of dark blue scimitars that were forged of sky metal (metiorites). They are well worn with years of use though still as keen as the day they were made.

Fighting Style: Allanon developed a style of hand to hand combat that does not waste his energy but rather builds up his strength. He weaves around the opponent's attack, dancing with death. His fluid movements cause opponets to flounder, using their agressiveness against them.

With his swords, Allanon still comands the grace he utilizes with hand to hand combat. He attacks and defends all at once, building up momentum to become an impenetrable whirlwind of death. His speed becomes blinding and his blows are magnified tenfold by his speed. No one has been able to escape his dance alive once Allanon draws his blades.

Personality: He appears indifferent to everything around him, creating and atmosphere that caused people to feel as if he were the only one who existed, and everyone else were nothing. It?s as if everyone else ceases to exist with his presence in the room, cold and calculating. He rarely shows any emotion, it?s as if nothing that happens is of any significance to him. He had acquired this attitude in the past years, his experiences, though little as they were, had changed something within him. The world didn?t think he mattered, so the world in turn did not matter to him.

He doesn?t do a thing unless he wants to do it, acting upon his own whim. He has never achieved a smile or true laughter, even as an infant. He is very persistent, refusing to do a thing unless he?s doing it his own way, defying society. He doesn?t care for the opinion or the affection of others, because of this, he has never had a friend, only foes. Sure girls fall for him, but he doesn?t take advantage of his looks, seeing no interest in a girl who falls head over heels for him, making others think of him as conceited. He always appears to be certain of himself, even when his soul is in turmoil, threatening to tear him to shreds from the inside out, never knowing the cause of this torture.

The near smile on his face is a challenge to society, as if to say, ?You?ll never own me and you never will?. He is also very straight forward.

Name: Izumo no Okuni

Nickname: Betsushikime or Kuro Miko (reports have not been confirmed)

Gender: Female

Age: 20

Half/ Full: Full Blood

Appearance: [URL=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Samurai_Warriors_Izumo_no_Okuni.png]Click here to see her[/URL]

Weapon of Choice: The [URL=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Tanto-eventail-p1000703.jpg]tanto[/URL] hidden inside a fan shaped mounting. Primarily used for her defense especially when in a crowded area and not wanting to use her more long range weapon.

Rei, the [I]yumi[/I], longbow. Uses this weapon whenever ridging on horseback or to kill an attacker who is a long distance away. Exercises great precision and control when using this weapon. As so it was named spirit, Rei. Feels that this weapon is most accurate when she herself is in a calming and focused spirit. And Will not work properly when she is troubled.

Fighting Style: Rarely does hand to hand combat due to preference for using a long ranged weapon, but will defend herself if necessary to escape her attacker with little to no damage to herself and him. Has also been rumored to be able to use Black Magic, so dubbed by her secondary alias Kuro Miko.

Personality: Growing up as a daughter to a blacksmith, Okuni became excited to become a [I]miko[/I] for the Izumo temple. She learned rapidly and became well known for her dances and acting.This lays in stark contrast to her shyness when met in person but she is also of a flirty nature. This is where she also learned how to use the tanto and yumi that she have at her disposal when she needs them.

This though is where stories conflict. As the wars continued even in her area, Okuni's performances were seen as outlets to the young ones wanting relief from the fighting. Her dances and beaty are said to be what is helping the Izumo shrine. But some say these performances that Izumo create are also death trap to more important higher ups in the wars. She is often said to lure her victims and have them killed by the opposite side and therefore gets paid for her part in the charade. They say the shyness camoflages the cunning and lies this woman truly possess.

[COLOR=SlateGray][SIZE=1]Right. As it is June 30th, I am officially closing sign-ups. I am, however, letting Esther post after this, and Aizen has a slight exstension to fill in his personality. Drake, Alpha, mushrumluver, I'm afraid I'll have to cut you three for various reasons. The rest of you are IN. The RP should be open any time now, so be ready to start when it is.[/SIZE][/COLOR]

[FONT=Comic Sans MS]Thanks for letting me post this, Onix. ^_^[/FONT]
----------------------

[SIZE=1][B]Name[/B]: Oichi .

[B]Nickname[/B]: Sister of the Demon, Sibling of Oda Nobunaga, The Half-Blood Princess

[B]Gender[/B]: Female

[B]Age[/B]: 20

[B]Half/Full[/B]: Half-Blood

[B]Appearance[/B]: [B][URL=http://cvtw.batcave.net/images/video470.jpg]Lady Oichi[/URL] [/B] is usually depicted as a petite girl, some even mistake her for a small 12 year old. Her appearance greatly differs from what most people would think of the sister of the great man known as Oda Nobunaga. But that does not stop Oichi, the 5 foot warrior is a fighter at heart, and she will not let anyone stop her because of how she looks.

[B]Weapon of Choice[/B]: Dual Maces: [B][URL=http://cvtw.batcave.net/images/video470.jpg](Migoto)[/URL][/B] These flower-like twin maces have a story behind them. When Oichi was a child, her mother brought her to a flower garden every spring to watch the flowers bloom, it was a very special and anticipated event every year for Oichi and her mother. When she passed, Oichi had these maces custom made for her as a remembrance of her mother. They were hung within a small sanctuary just outside of Kyoto, until now.

[B]Fighting Style[/B]: Being a half-blood, Oichi?s strength is enhanced. She was never professionally trained in any kind of fighting style, therefor forcing Oichi to make one for herself. She called her style of fighting ?Life? because of the explosive energy that is contained within it. Most of her fighting is done long range, though, it?s easier using her maces to fight opponents from afar than fighting them close up.

[B]Personality[/B]: A fiery and determined young girl best describes Oichi. Although, there have been certain rumours that say that she led a double life. One as an always content girl, her most well known one, and the mysterious ninja named Kunoichi. Even if no one has actually confronted Oichi about the matter, most know for sure that Kunoichi and Oichi are the same person. The people seem to play it off as if they do not know.

Adding to the tough warrior persona, Oichi has a soft and feminine side. Having been politically forced into marriage three times already in her short life, Oichi longs for the feeling of that thing she had heard only of in literature and tales. Love. Oh how she would give for this!

The only real thing she can get is that from books and fairy tales told from her elders and family. Maybe she wasn?t meant to be a lover or to be loved, but she that would not stop her from being a hopeless romantic.

Loud, tender, graceful. Oichi. [/SIZE]
