Characters List Name: TeoSex: M Age: 15 Race: Nekokai Teo is a young Nekokai boy. When he was 8, his father took him and their family friend, Kitty, away from their village of Duro, when one night it went up in flames. Teo’s father disappeared after building Teo and Kitty a home deep in the mountain forests. Nearly eight years have passed, and Teo sets out with Kitty to find out what happened to his father, and the answer to the questions surrounding his disappearance. Name: KittySex: F Age: 17 Race: Nekokai Kitty is a studious, bright young Nekokai girl with a love for reading and cooking (though Teo would prefer she kept away from the latter). She was orphaned when she was almost 10 when her parents vanished from their home in the village of Duro, and taken in by Teo’s father, only weeks before a fire swept through. Kitty fled the town with Teo and his father, and has lived in the home Teo’s father built for Teo and Kitty before he too disappeared. It is now almost eight years later, and Kitty sets off with Teo to find Teo’s father, while also seeking answers to questions she’s held onto for years. Name: TashaSex: F Age: 16Race: Hui-Maow Tasha is a pretty, ambitious girl of the feline Hui-Maow race, just as Saam is. Tasha was raised with her four older brothers by her father in the desert kingdom of Shade, where they worked as animal keepers for the nobility. Tasha is very strong and athletic, having grown up in the harsh desert climate, and having spent any free time training her body. Her desire to become strong and make a difference in the world did not go unnoticed by her father, and after hearing of the four Elemental powers and of Warrior’s Temple, sent her there, where she tested and was found to have Earth affinity. She is a recent arrival and begins her training alongside Teo and Kitty. Name: Master RohkSex: M Age: 77 Race: Human Master Rohk holds the two distinctions of being both the Master of Warrior’s Temple, and the Guardian of Earth (the undisputed strongest in the world gifted with the Earth Element). Pleasant and logical, Master Rohk governs and oversees the training of all disciples of the Elements at Warrior’s Temple. He harbors a strong sense of justice, and has taken it upon himself to weed out the Death worshipers, as he views them as a distortion of the natural order, due to their penchant for bloodshed and sacrifice. It is said that Master Rohk has never met his equal in battle in all his 77 years. Name: Masked ManSex: M Age: ??Race: ?? This masked figure appeared suddenly at Warrior’s Temple, demanding the death of Teo and proclaiming the revival of something called Murama Daikyo. He brought with him several lifeless bodies which he could seemingly control, and reform them from damage. He claims to be the true ‘bond’ to the sword, Ryugou, which had awoken and chosen Teo. He also claims to be from a group called ‘The Third Truth,’ and mentioned that Teo’s father has some hand to play in the coming days. What could all this mean? Name: ClaudeSex: M Age: UnknownRace: Tora Claude is a member of The Third Truth, a fanatical cult aimed at releasing a self-proclaimed god, Murama Daikyo.Claude seems a bit unhinged, deliberately putting himself at the mercy (or lack thereof) of Master Rohk after threatening his students, and laughing as he receives his punishment. Claude apparently also freely gave Master Rohk information he wanted without reason. Just what is going through his head is anyone’s guess. Name: CatherineSex: FAge: UnknownRace: Sera Catherine is a member of The Third Truth, a fanatical cult aimed at releasing a self-proclaimed god, Murama Daikyo. Catherine comes across as inquisitive and questioning, but a fierce temper can be felt just beneath the surface. She came to Warrior’s Temple to retrieve the Monolith, a massive chunk of Obsydian Stone that reacted to the presence of the Ryugou blade. The reason why is unknown. Name: Shoga ShinraSex: MAge: 19Race: Human Shoga Shinra, a 19 year-old prodigy disciple and Fire Champion(highest rank of a particular element) of the Warrior’s Temple. Handsome, but ill-tempered, Shoga joined the Warrior’s Temple at the age of 6, progressing rapidly in both his element of Fire as well as weapon/physical combat training. He became Champion in just three years. He has grown restless with the Temple and seeks to find his purpose in life. Name: SaamSex: FAge: 28Race: Hui-Maow Saam is the Warrior’s Temple Champion of Sky, and a bit of an oddity. Possessing an almost unbreakable cheery demeanor, Saam tends to be almost childishly whimsical, despite possessing a vast array of knowledge and intuition. Perhaps odder still, Saam’s gender is unknown to almost everyone at Warrior’s Temple. Saam teaches both disciples of the Sky Element, as well as weapon combat training. Name: RoseSex: FAge: 16Race: Tora Rose is a young Tora girl with the Frost affinity at Warrior’s Temple. Hibara is her older brother, and they were brought to Warrior’s Temple many years ago by Master Rohk when Hibara’s Frost abilities began to manifest. Rose has lived at Warrior’s Temple ever since, but was only recently tested and allowed to begin training due to her immature and difficult nature. Name: HibaraSex: MAge: 24Race: Tora Hibara is the Warrior’s Temple Champion of Frost. He teaches disciples in his element, and is also the primary teacher of the physical combat styles. He is a rarity in that his Elemental abilities began to release on their own without having undergone the Elemental Affinity Awakening test. Disciplined and loyal, Hibara was brought to Warrior’s Temple as a child along with his sister Rose by Master Rohk. He is a primary interest of many a female disciple at Warrior’s Temple, as his good looks and toned physique seem to compete with his lessons for their undivided attention. Name: LukeSex: M Age: 19 Race: Konjin Luke is a disciple of Frost at Warrior’s Temple, where he has been training for nearly a year. His people, the Konjin, are nomadic. His family visited Warrior’s Temple in their travels, and were tested for affinity. After discovering his Frost abilities, Luke remained at Warrior’s Temple, promising his family he would rejoin them once his training was sufficient. Luke is rather clumsy, and has a tendency to overthink just about everything, but has a kind heart. He is one of the few people that Shoga counts as a friend. Names: Skeev and BruSex: M and MAges: Skeev: 19 Bru: 21Race: Skeev: Nusa Bru: Urso These two troublemakers are being described together because they were rarely seen apart. Both disciples at Warrior’s Temple, they both were found to have affinities, Skeev Fire and Bru Earth, but neither was much for learning. They’d rather spend their time skipping lessons, stealing food, or ogling who they consider the attractive residents of the Temple. They came to the Temple around the same time, without much explanation, though most assume they were delinquents before finding out they had powers, and would likely use them to further their mischief. Skeev and Bru were both quite perverted, but in different ways, as Skeev liked the ladies while Bru is into guys. Skeev met his demise at the hands of the Third Truth during an attempt to get with Kitty. Name: Sunzo YoruSex: MAge: 63Race: Human Sunzo is the Steward of Warrior’s Temple, and the only person in the world known to be able to use Life abilities. As such, he is far older than he appears, owing his youthful appearance to having Life energy flowing through him. He has spent most of his adult life in Warrior’s Temple, assisting Master Rohk with both assisting with the new disciple’s affinity tests, as well as daily work and teaching at the Temple. He never speaks of his past to anyone. Name: NyghtSex: FAge: 36Race: Human? Nyght is the current Guardian of Frost (the undisputed strongest in the world gifted with the Frost Element). Calculating and rather unemotional, she speaks slowly, weighing every word before it escapes her lips. She traveled from the frozen Northern Tundra to Warriors Temple to convene with the other Guardians about the sudden rise in Death cultist activity, as well as to ascertain the nature of ‘The Third Truth.’ Name: ChouSex: MAge: 54Race: Sera Chou is the current Guardian of Sky (the undisputed strongest in the world gifted with the Sky Element).Cheerful, boisterous, and proud, Chou comes from the far east, and serves as the Chief of his people, the Sera, of whom only a few hundred remain. He occasionally travels to Warrior’s Temple to meet with Master Rohk, whom he knows very well and considers a close friend. Name: Cyril ShinraSex: MAge: 24Race: Human Cyril is the current Guardian of Fire (the undisputed strongest in the world gifted with the Fire Element), and is the youngest person to become Guardian, having assumed the position at the age of 18. Cyril is the older brother of Shoga, the Fire Champion at Warrior’s Temple. Seemingly frail and rather soft-spoken, Cyril does little to intimidate potential opponents, though perhaps looks can be deceiving. Cyril traveled to Warrior’s Temple to join the Guardians’ Meeting. Name: CanaanSex: MAge: UnknownRace: Unknown Canaan is a member of The Third Truth, a fanatical cult aimed at releasing a self-proclaimed god, Murama Daikyo.Canaan seems somewhat devoid of personality, and he speaks in a breathless mutter. He is able to give ordersto Claude and Catherine, so his position in The Third Truth seems to be at the Masked Man’s right hand. Name: MorgannSex: MAge: 25Race: San-Yang-Kun Morgann is a very tall, lean man who works as a bounty hunter, doing jobs that range anywhere from bodyguard work to outright killing, though he seems to avoid these jobs whenever possible. His outward appearance seems rather drab, and he carries himself in a very lazy, unmotivated fashion. Looks can be deceiving however, as Morgann is a gifted swordsman and fighter. Recently he was seen capturing an infamous thief, Naari, before setting off in search of bigger prizes. Name: NaariSex: FAge: 20Race: Hui-Maow mix Naari is a well-known thief who has a penchant for robbing from the very wealthy. Over time she has established herself as nearly uncatchable, having avoided the law at almost every turn, up until her encounter with the bounty hunter Morgann. Somewhat short-fused but also playful, Naari has a habit of hanging around taverns and bars where she often picks up information for a new potential heist, or sometimes a nice lady to bring home for the night. Name: Teo’s Father (Angelo)Sex: MAge: 28 at time of disappearance, now would be 36Race: Nekokai Teo’s Father disappeared 8 years ago after building a tree-house for Teo and Kitty. His whereabouts are currently unknown. Name: Murama DaikyoSex: MAge: UnknownRace: Unknown The self-proclaimed god the cult known as The Third Truth is attempting to resurrect. His history remains largely unknown to those outside the cult. Name: CaiusSex: MAge: 39Race: Hei-Bao Caius is a member of The Third Truth, a fanatical cult aimed at releasing a self-proclaimed god, Murama Daikyo. Caius, while brutal in his actions, has a temperament that is calm, contemplative even, until he comes across a Nekokai. He came to the Warrior’s Temple to retrieve the Monolith, a massive chunk of Obsydian Stone that reacted to the presence of the Ryugou blade. The reason why is unknown. Name: CleoSex: FAge: 18Race: Nekokai/Sera Cleo is a young woman in the Amado Imperium, a religious order whose self-proclaimed mission is to rid the world of darkness and evil. She is committed to her duty, but also enjoys her free time, perhaps a bit too much at times. She is comically forgetful and a bit clumsy, but her heart is in the right place, and she believes in helping further the work of Amado. Name: Remy Sex: MAge: 15Race: Topo Remy is a cheerfully helpful boy in the Amado Imperium, a religious order whose self-proclaimed mission is to rid the world of darkness and evil. Deemed too small to fight, Remy was assigned to Cleo as her Armiger (squire), a job he does with relish. Remy’s loyalty to Amado is only exceeded by his commitment to serving his Lady Cleo.
