I was born on All Hollows Night in 1885 in Sora Village, a remote village in Japan kept out of the history books for fear of invasion. Our village never had enemies with the outside world, it was in the village that they feared most of all.

It wasn't a traitor in the village, or a murderer. No, they feared the one thing they couldn't control...

The demon spirit - Morikai


Every one hundred years a Morikai would be born in the village. This year... it was me. I don't remember the village very well. I was banished along with my parents the day I was born. But dad used to tell me how beautiful it was, he even made a house in the forest so we wouldn't feel so far from home.

My dad told me about how he used to try and hide me from my mom when I was a baby. He said the stress of being banished made her sick(though now I know she was just a lunatic) and that was why I couldn't let her see me.

All she would do if she saw me was scream for my dad, but all that changed when Kimmy was born. I was six years old when Kimberly Sinclaire was born... and mom completely turned on me.

She would grab anything she could to use as a weapon against me. My dad would always stop her and give me a chance to escape, but he wasn't always fast enough. I got a lot of scars from her, but most of them were after I did something unforgivable...

I killed my father... my only friend...


Kimmy was four years old and I was ten. I had gotten a letter from a messenger from the village. Wallace Sinclaire was killed while spreading blasphemous messages in the village of the Morikai's kindness.

When mom found the letter she hunted me down with dad's old pocket knife. When I got away I felt like I was half dead. But stupid Kimmy found me and bandaged me up well enough that I could help myself. And she wouldn't leave until she saw the bandages were on right.

A month later some demon hunters came to our home and tried to kill me. I thought that was it but... mom protected me. She pushed me towards the door and screamed "Take Kimberly and run!" I took Kimmy(who was hiding in a corner) by her hand and ran. When the hunters left I went back inside...

They had carved a message into my mother...


The message was 'No Sanctuary'... I told Kimmy to close her eyes and sing her favorite lullaby . When she did I carried mom as best I could and buried her under her beloved cherry tree.

A year later I had Kimmy with me as we were stealing apples to eat. We had become masters of deception. But Kimmy was always ahead of me because she knew how nervous the village made me and told me to hold onto her arm. It was nice compared to the roof jumping I used to do.

One day me and Kimmy were caught and were forced to run home. We made it back, but the hunters were hot on our trail. I had Kimmy hide with me in a closet and we huddled as far back as we could.

The hunters came in, and I heard one say "Maybe we should leave him be. He has done our village no harm even though he lives so close" A gruff voice, the leader, replied "No! He is probably waiting for us the lower our guard" As they looked for us me and Kimmy had been so quiet, but just as they were leaving--

THUMP!


Kimmy's foot had slipped and hit the closet door. Again the leader and kinder hunter argued:
"What was that?!"
"It was nothing. Probably a rat knocking over something"
"You weakling! We must search again, they are here!"

They searched again, this time the kinder one found us. He looked at us with surprise, and seemed like he was going to help us hide by keeping quiet, but another hunter peered over his shoulder just as he was about to close the door and bellowed "Kamui found them!"

I don't remember what happened between the closet and the living room, but I do remember one last argument before my life was torn apart:
"You can't do this Master! She is innocent! I thought we hunted demons, not our own people!"
"Don't you dare go against me Kamui! It has a connection with this girl, we must teach it for the next life as well!"
"No!" I remember seeing Kamui, the kindest human other than my dad and Kimmy, die all because he tried to free my sister. Kimmy started to scream my name, but I couldn't do anything because we were being held apart by the hunters.

Then, without a moments pause for his fallen comrade, 'Master'(as Kamui called the leader) turned to me with a sword to Kimmy's chest and said "A beast like you does not deserve such innocence"

I blacked out


It wasn't until I felt the burning in my stomach that I realized that I had killed all the hunters. There were only two spots that weren't burned by my fire stone. It was too late for Kimmy... But Kamui was just barely hanging on.

I wrapped some bandages around his injuries and carried him as best I could back to the village. He kept trying to get me to leave him to die, but I didn't listen. I told him "Tell them you killed the Morikai... The evil spirit of the demon has cursed the old shack in the woods... I want you to live... because you are the last kindness I'll ever see..."

------------

A few weeks past and I never heard from Kamui until one night. Someone knocked on my door, came inside and handed my a copy of a letter sent to every home in Sora Village:

"The Morikai Spirit has been cleansed. Misunderstood, Kamui Junpei eased the spirit and helped it pass on. Though the old home in the woods is still cursed, the lake has been blessed by the Morikai's kindness"

Before I could see who delivered the letter, they were gone. But they dropped a photo - It was Kamui with a beautiful woman(probably his wife) and two children. On the back of the photo something was written - Kamui and Anju Junpei with their children Ayuka and...

Muga Junpei


The dope named his son after me. I held on to the picture until the day I died. And he came for me.

"It's time..."

Kiora

Post  Vilkas on Tue Jul 10, 2012 10:37 pm

I was created on February 1st at 2:27 pm. I awoke to see myself suspended in what appeared to be a mechanism resembling a cryo-tube. My first sight was blurred substantially, making it near impossible to register the man outside my cryo-tube, whom I would later register as my creator and master.

After I was released I was immediately tested, pushing my abilities as far as I was capable. I destroyed many lives during the tests. I asked my master why my eyes burned when I terminated a young girl, but I was simply beaten for admitting... feelings.

My master was a kind man, he was simply... under-valued. I theorize that, due to the lack of affection, my master turned to revenge. Perhaps... that is why he showed no affection for me?

After several months of testing, I was given my first command. I never told my master, but... after I was given the order... my eyes burned at such a rate that it was almost

unbearable


Men and women would scream when they saw me. Children cried and pleaded for me to stop and leave them. But I... I could not. If there was a god... he surely would never forgive me...

I found a boy, short haired with over-sized clothes and many bandages. I recognized him... and my legs felt unstable.

I had been given special instructions for this boy. Th-the *ahem* The instructions were cruel for the boy, but nonetheless... I executed them...

After my mission, I felt ill. My stomach was tight, my face felt over heated, my legs shook with every step... but nothing was as critical... as the tightness in my chest. I am only grateful that my master did not notice.

That night, I was terrified. My eyes began to leak, and I was afraid that I had begun to deteriorate. I went to my master, whom was not too pleased with the mid-night awakening, and inquired about the leaking. He looked into my eyes and told me in his usual, cold tone "you've become unstable. Here, I'll fix it" He applied pressure on different areas of my head until the leaking stopped.

My master went back to sleep, but I escaped the cavern we called home to researched the mysterious leaking. It was then that I found out...

My master lied...


I was physically stable, it was my emotions that were unstable. The leaking was what is called 'crying', or 'shedding tears'. I researched this 'crying' action as long as I could before returning to my master.

When I returned, my master was standing in my room. He had found out about my escape and decided to take measures to ensure I never escaped again.

I landed heavily (or rather, as heavily as someone with my weight could) onto the bed as my master forced me onto my back and tied my arms together. I looked up in fear as he tore the front of my shirt and placed a hand over my Water-Stone.

His voice was over-flowing with hatred as he hissed "If you struggle I'll tear you apart" I laid as still as I could as he tied a ribbon around my neck. There was a bell, enchanted with an unknown magic, on the ribbon that laid in the crook of my neck.

He rung the tiny gold bell once...

And I lost my will
