The Dwindling Flowers

Post by Chavah on Tue Dec 13, 2011 9:00 pm




Provere City – The city that is steeped in culture and history, filled with buildings and monuments from the bygone days of French rule. It is an old town, said to have grown from a village of mystics, seers, and gypsies escaping oppressive rule.



Every day, there are sightings of the supernatural throughout the world. Most people shrug such information off. For humans, disbelief equals lack of existence. The general consensus is that the supernatural does not exist, and so far as they were concerned, they never did.

An example. There were a series of pranks pulled off in the 19th century by imps. Damages were done by them. However, the average folk blamed birds. The citizens of this city would argue for days over the size of the birds, but they were in general agreement that the thing which knocked tiles off their roof that night was a swarm of angry birds. The truth seemed a lot more ridiculous in comparison.


So now you know. The beings in folklore, mythology, and urban legends are fact. This is the point in which I enter the scene.

There exists “The Organization" which has the power to grant us, anyof our desires. However, we must become their soldiers called the Flowers to fight evil born from curses of mankind. These "Shadows" are responsible for murders and suicides in this city.

We thus no longer exist to the world. Our memories are wiped clean and our family never knew we ever existed. We live solely to protect the balance of the worlds. Why we have chosen to become their Flowers is entirely up tous. I don’t know why the other girls have decided to give up their lives, but they did.

All I care about is about finding the demons responsible for these murders. Then I will be one day closer to my redemption.



Who am I, you ask? Well, you can just call me Katyusha. How about that?

Cast:

Katyusha:She carries a katana that was issued to her by the Organization. Katyusha is aggressive and expresses little in feelings, coming off robotic like in personality.

Emma: A British girl, whom studied ancient magics in order to understand how to seal demons away. Emma is very shy and very book smart.

Chiaki:The only Japanese girl on the current team. She's campy and friendly. She is armed with along pole arm (spear) that she uses in combat. She likes to consider herself Kat's best friend.

Judith:The oldest member of the team. She is viewed as the motherly figure of the crew. She uses explosive cards, similar to Gambit from the X-Men. She's from France.

Constantia: A Greek girl that has dark hair and likes to take photographs. Like Katyusha she is armed with several katana swords in battle. Unlike Katyusha, she is more relaxed and informal.

Archetype: Pole-Arm User

CHARACTER PROFILE

Character Name: Chiaki
Gender: Female

Job/Role: Backup Enforcer/Scout/Bait

Age:

General Appearance:
Spoiler:

General Personality: An aggressive individualist and obstinate optimist--joie de vivre on her sleeve. Her energy is boundless and her interests aren't likely far behind. She seems to rather enjoy exaggerating her personality into a bit of a hyper-active, absent-minded, "weird Japanese girl" stereotype. Hates seeing people depressed. Tries to pull Katsuysha out of her shell. Is actually more aware than she lets on which is probably why they get along despite the apparent contrast. Still, Chiaki dislikes details and drudgery. She's not much of a planner unless there's absolutely no other way or someone else can't be talked into doing it for her. And she sort of fudges details when she actually does plan, half making things up as she goes. Known to run off and do her own thing without warning to mixed results.


General History: Chiaki likes to get a rise out of her teammates and superiors by faking epiphanies, claiming to have suddenly regained her memories and making up backstories for herself that are then quickly dismissed as false. This could get her into trouble.


Powers/Skills: Originality is all in the execution. Few praise a poorly-executed novelty. Razz[/Author's soapbox] Telekinesis. Chiaki can levitate objects, people, even herself to some degree. It's mostly a matter of her state of mind. Because of this, she exhibits a lot more fine control when using her power for investigation, sabotage, or recreation. In open battle she's usually reduced to shoving, tugging, and tossing things about.


Chaiki is also trained in the use of several polearms, but she seems to most favor the naginata--a weapon she actually knew how to use(albeit less effectively) before the memory wipe.

Archetype: Explosives

CHARACTER PROFILE

Character Name: Judith Gaudet

Gender: Female

Job/Role: Commissar: Judith is the supervisory officer responsible for the education, organization, and loyalty of the Flowers to the Organization. She is the highest ranking member of the current band and everyone is required to listen to her. Her other job is to keep the contracts between the team and their servant (demon or kami) allies.

Age: 24

General Appearance:
Spoiler:

Judith, like most of the team wears black as the main color as her uniform. Unlike the others, she wears a black coat trimmed with red on the collar and cuffs. Since the Organization is set up like a military force, this is what suggests her rank. Judith also wears black paratrooper boots and when in combat she also dons a leather coat and peaked “army-style” hat. She has a habit of not sticking to regulation uniforms because she likes custom made versions to show that she has a special ranking within the elite regiment.

General Personality: Judith is a mentor. After serving as a member of Organization for years, she knows her way around the system and is willing to teach newer or younger members the ropes.

Her stance is simple. “Once engaged in battle, fight to win. That is the first and cardinal rule of battle. Suppress all human emotions and compassion. Kill whosoever stands in thy way. Once it is mastered, thou shall fear no one, though even devils block thy way.'"

Judith embraces a life of enlightened ideals. She owns a large collection of books and loves sharing her knowledge. Because of her knowledge, it is rare for demons to question her abilities.

Judith believes a ‘new kind of person’ can be created with proper education. She believes education can change the hearts and minds of the Flowers, and turn them away from turning into Shadows themselves. This means that she develops individuals both intellectually and morally, providing them knowledge and skills, and fostering a sense of civic responsibility.

The first thing a new Flower learns is that Judith is in charge and not to question her authority for their well being. In order to be a good commissar, she has to love the Flowers as if they are her own sisters but at the same times she cannot allow them to be undisciplined. Most of the girls have learned this though Constantia and Katyusha can be problematic at times. She is harsh with verbal discipline and is very stern. It is seldom that she actually strikes any of her “students.”

General History: Unlike other members of the Flowers, Judith’s memory has not been wiped. The reason for this is because she is a political member of the Organization and her family has a history in the European branch for generations. She is of French origins and lived in Marseille before enlisting in the Flower Program. Because of her education, she was elected to the position of Commissar.

Powers/Skills/Weapons: Judith possesses the ability to manipulate kinetic energy via psychic magic. She has the power to take the potential energy stored in an object and convert it to kinetic energy thus “charging” that item with explosive results. She prefers to charge smaller objects, such as her ever-present playing cards, as the time required to charge them is greatly reduced and they are much easier to throw. The power of her explosions is dependent on the mass of the object she is charging, for example, a charged playing card explodes with the force of a grenade.

As the Commissar, she is allowed to carry a pistol into battle instead of the standard short sword (katana) or pole staff. Judith has a weapon known as a Universal Enforcer, which is a M1 Carbine that was converted to become a pistol. It is a .30 Caliber weapon that can fire a 30 round magazine and weighs less than 4 pounds. In order to deal with supernatural beings, the rounds are laced with silver which acts as a poison to most evil beings.

General History: Ae is a Korean girl and as for her life before becoming a Flower had been calm and peaceful and like any of the other girls but something went wrong. There were a series of killings inside her family; her parents thought it was dark magic cursed upon their family. Ae witnessed everyday before her eyes someone so dear to her die miserably, until she was the only one left.

Archetype: Time Manipulation

CHARACTER PROFILE

Character Name: Constantia

Gender: Female

Job/Role: Photographer/support fighter

Age: 19

General Appearance:
Spoiler:


General Personality: An energetic young woman who has a photophelia of sorts, Constantia isn't too fond of fighting, but she will do it.

General History: One might ask a nineteen year old Greek girl how is it she came by two twin katana, and why she's taking their picture. Is she some kind of weird tourist? Who let those swords through customs? The world may never know.

You see, it all started five years ago. When she WAS a tourist. Her and her family were on vacation in Provere to see the sights, take in the awesome French scultures, when it happened. A cyclist - probably American - was riding his motorcycle on the wrong side of the road. Consti had, prior to this tripped and fell, when he rode his 650 cc motorcycle over her spine, crushing it in his wake.

As it happens, she had wandered away from her family to get alone for a while, and to snap a few pictures of places they didn't want to go. She now lay in the road with no feeling in her legs, alone, and with passerbys just staring at her. She felt the world fading away, not knowing whether it was life or just conciousness.

Fast forward twenty hours, as she wakes up in an 'undisclosed' location, where she is laying on a sterile bed. The lights are bright, and she instinctually tries to curl up in a ball. To her surprise, she can move her legs once more, but still not yet to the extent she could before the accident.

The bright lights culminated in a migraine, and she forced herself back into a coma to heal both her head and her back. And then there was the mind wipe.

she awoke next with the same bright lights, and though she did not remember any injuries, the broken spine had been healed, and so there was nothing to either remember or forget. It was that day she met Judith, who told her that her name was Constantia, and she was a 'Flower.' The rest, you see, comes with the changing of the tides, of the destruction of demons and kami, the discovery of abilites, all of it.

Powers/Skills/Weapons: Freeze-frame. When Constantia has time to click her camera in battle the flash temporarily freezes the opponent where they stand, if only long enough for someone to strike it. Average time is 3-10 seconds. She cannot take multiple pictures in a row to keep the opponent frozen, as it has a charge time of 45 seconds.

Archetype: Super Soldier

CHARACTER PROFILE

Character Name: Katyusha

Gender: Female

Job/Role:Enforcer

Age: 18

General Appearance:
Spoiler:

Kat has shoulder lenght red hair, with purple eyes, and always wears glasses.

General Personality: True Neutral. Kat just wants to be left alone, to enjoy life herself and let other people do whatever. If someone defies that, though, usually the demons, she'll fight back. She is only committed to this cause, killing whatever demon is reponsible for the cracking between the human world and the Otherworld. Kat has gone through so much strife, so many times that she simply don't care anymore, and will only focus on her owngoals and help or hurt other people if she feelsl like it. Thus her duties make her indifferent towards human life.

Kat's main rival is Constantina. Kat treats her with contempt and disdain. She generally treats most other characters with ignorance and indifference, with the exception of Chiaki, who she looks to as a source in answering certain difficulties when Judith is unable to do so. While she might appear to be a hard ass on the outside, she is aware of the dangerous aspects and possibility of losing her life as a Flower and feels isolated and alone with no one to turn to that will understand her problems.

General History: Katyusha is from Moscow, Russia. She came from a poor Eastern Orthodox church family. Her father was a low ranking priest within the system, so they did not have a stable income. The details of what occurred on the night of November 21st were important to her conversion as a Flower. Her father went mad and killed his entire family. While the Organization is not connected to the church, she was able to find the nearest head quarters and demanded to join it at the age of 15. The normal conditions is that a new recruit would be pair up with a demon called a Servant that would be used to fight against other demons that were causing the imbalances between the worlds. It is believed that Katyusha was openly hostile to the servant. Therefore, it was believed that it was for her own good to have her memory wiped and she was sent to join the Flowers. Some of the magi the Organization believe that the memory wipes may have triggered more of her dark inner personality to appear.

Powers/Skills/Weapons: Kat is clearly a powerful and talented Enforcer, and is said to be the most powerful Flower, known and feared by most demons by title alone. She is armed with a katana, which is one of several blades that the Organization uses. In Kat's case, the blade was chosen for her because of its quality more than its ability to be used in the field. It is more of a symbol of honor since it was awarded to her by Judith for doing many missions. However that being said, she can use all the weapons that her fellow Flowers use.Kat is very skilled individual who relies in speed and agility. Her body has an extremely high physical and magical potential. She can jump to the top of lamp posts with ease, leap from rooftop to rooftop and match the speed of most demons.

Spoiler:


Archetype: Spell-Casting Martial Artist

CHARACTER PROFILE

Character Name: Emma Sterling

Gender: Female

Job/Role: Spiritual Sensor/Long-range Combatant/Recon

Age: 19

General Appearance: Emma dresses in coat-dresses and darker colors, with stripes and plaid and checkers every day. She's a very conservative girl in terms of clothing and takes pride in her English-girl style. She usually keeps her hair in an updo when working and in a ponytail when casual. She may dress older than she is to keep people guessing.

General Personality: Emma is very shy, to the point where she does not speak unless spoken to and keeps to herself most of the time. And although she is a highly intelligent, kind-hearted girl, much of this is unseen because she does not socialize with the other Flowers as much as she might have wished. Emma has learned to keep things to herself and be strong about it. She spends most of her time reading and as a result, does not feel lonely in the absence of people. On the inside, Emma is a sweet, people-loving child who only wants peace for the world. She worries about the smallest things and fears for her companions' safeties. She prays for an end to the struggle.

General History: At a young age, Emma was faced with darkness. Her mother was possessed by a strong sort of demon, making the woman scary unlike Emma had ever seen. It was more of a horror movie than reality and as long back as Emma could remember, she avoided her mother like the plague. Doctors came in and out of the house, diagnosing various conditions and trying to cure Mrs. Sterling, but Emma would overhear the side conversations they would have in the lawn. 'She's not going to get better, that woman, it's as if she's possessed,' the doctors would murmur to one another. Curious, little Emma began to study the ancient books in her father's vast library, slowly coming to take a liking in ancient magics. In particular, she studied the sealing away of demons. When her mother finally passed away, Emma was devastated. She became quieter and didn't talk to people. She would sit in her room with books and read quietly all day. Her father was worried, but he too, was stricken with grief. He became fed up with her silence and so, Emma realized she could no longer stay at the Sterling home. The lingering spirit that had possessed her mother haunted her there. She left home in search of the Flowers. She wasn't able to seal the demon that killed her mother, but at least she could put her knowledge to use somewhere else.

Powers/Skills/Weapons: Demon-Extraction & Demon-Sealing Magics. Supportive Magic Skills: anti-illness booster spells, anti-injury (invincible) booster spells. Combat Magic Skills: firebolts, ice shards, and electric currents, each spell must be read in it's ancient language as memorized from her spellbook (she has many, but this is her favorite). Emma doesn't use a particular weapon, but rather specializes in hand-to-hand combat and several forms of martial arts.
