MATURE RPG


May, 2010... Fantasy became reality. Worlds overlay for the briefest moment. Outworlders became stranded on earth as more than half the human populace vanished. Our World, our universe, was transformed.

Fiction is now reality. Humans and those now bound to this world will either learn to coexist, or battle for supremecy.

JUNE 13, 2019 - Family emergency  took a bad turn so had to stay away but now things are finally calming down. Hope to get going again shortly. Thanks for understanding. ~ZEPH

  • APPEARANCE
    An athletic but curvy asian woman, Suzaku is 5’7” but her powerful presence makes her feel taller. She is as comfortable in silk suits and asian dresses as she is in her training gear. Silken black hair hits her waist but is pinned up most of the time, her face beautifully painted for an enhanced natural exquisiteness made more exotic by the rare jade eyes. Most of her body she hides from the world.. a painted masterpiece covering her entire back, buttocks, thighs and down her arms in half sleeves… her yakuza tattoo, inked in the old way, endless hours of hypnotically painful needle pounded ink. Her chest left bare of the twisted imagery to allow for the low cut of blouses she is prone to wearing under her suits. The ink depicts war, power, death and embedded among the colors is the phoenix dragon… a symbol of who she was… and still is.
  • PERSONALITY
    From the outside she can be seen as an ice queen.. cold and indifferent… very Japanese. But to those that truly know her, Suzaku is fiercely loyal and warm in her own way. She has a sly sense of humor that comes out when she is relaxed and a soft spot in her heart for music and art. Though do not mistake this for weakness either. She is ambitious, seeking a place among the heavy hitters of the city. After all, the firebird boils her blood.

    Likes::
    ■Art – especially sculptures evoking movement
    ■Ancient Asian Weapons
    ■People that understand the true meanings of loyalty and respect
    ■Shakuhachi and Shamisen music
    ■Exotic Teas

    Dislikes::
    ■Disloyalty and Disrespect
    ■Weak women
    ■Guns – though she recognizes the need for them in her business, she will not carry one herself
    ■Sweets
    ■Incompetent bed partners

    Strengths::
    ■Her fighting skills, especially with swords. She is extensively trained in hand to hand and sword fighting from her years as wakagashira, first lieutenant, to the kumicho in Japan.
    ■Leadership and intelligence – she was wakagashira for a reason, the boss had his position by brute force, she had hers by being smarter than all the rest. She has a natural charisma that makes others want to follow her… to impress her. Her presence makes people worried about letting her down, not for fear of repercussion.. but fear of her disappointment in them.
    ■Her loyalty is fierce… she expects others to be loyal but gives it in return.
    ■An uncanny ability to spot real art… there is not a single forgery in the Guggenheim as she spotted them long before they made her walls.
    ■Not known by many but she has a natural balance and rhythm that was learned perfecting traditional Japanese Geisha dances.

    Weaknesses::
    ■She has been known to have a short temper whenever disrespect or disloyalty is shown, and her temper burns hot and fast.
    ■Water – a “phoenix” by nature she has a fear of bodies of water as well as gets cold very quickly when she is wet, like her fire has gone out.
    ■Her aversion to guns has put her in danger more than once, a sword is a poor combatant against a Glock.
    ■Mistrustful of new people – those she was once very close to betrayed her, now her trust is hard to earn which is why the yakuza clan she leads is still so small.
    ■A battle injury from her escape from Japan has left her with a partial loss of hearing in her left ear which is why she always is strategically placing herself to the left of conversations to ensure she does not miss anything said.

    Spiritual Convictions::Shinto – though it is more via association than heavy practice.
  • PERSONAL BELONGINGS
    Outside of the extensive art collection she has amassed for the Guggenheim, Suzaku has a large personal collection of ancient asian weapons, a particular fondness of hers. She has a small collection of expensive jewelry that is more for investment than any real affection for the pieces.

  • APPROVED ABILITIES
    Phoenix Nodachi
    The fire bird lives in her blood and manifests at her will. Suzaku can create the Nodachi from her right hand at will without a flame source, simply a dry palm. The two handed sword is 5.5ft long (four foot of flaming blade, a foot and a half of tightly wound flamed handle). The weapon behaves as a steel Nodachi would, razor sharp and unbending, though it never dulls and has the added sting of intense flames. It can slice through flesh easily as well as any other object that would normally yield to the steel of such a blade. It will leave a burn on flesh with even a slight touch or ignite fabric with the same fury as if it had touched molten lava. Against another sword of steel it will cause sparks similar to popping tinder from a fire which can in themselves be dangerous, burning skin and catching material on fire, as well as most normal swords will yield to this one, breaking clean through. When it rages the flames can also drip like molten lava from the steal. The flame surrounding the thin sword stretches nearly a foot wide, but as she tires the flame will shrink, eventually extinguishing as the Nodachi vanishes when she is too weak to support the weapon any longer. When the ability first developed she could sustain it only for mere minutes; with practice she is now up to nearly 60 minutes. If she pushes its use until it extinguishes by force without her shutting the ability down it will take her nearly four hours to reignite it. If she shuts down the weapon she needs an hour to ignite it at full strength again, if she ignites it in less than an hour the weapon will already show the dimming of the use before.

    Resistance to Flame
    Suzaku is impervious to the flames and tinder of her own weapon but also heavily resistant to flames from outside sources. Contact while feeling warm will not burn her skin, however, should she be engulfed in a fire; she could survive longer than the average person (up to four times as long), but she would eventually burn and die like anyone else.

    Healing
    The Phoenix lives in her blood and has granted her an unnatural ability to heal. Wounds burn from the inside, sealing themselves in a fraction of the time that it would take them to heal naturally. The seal of thin or small wounds such as a blade slice or bullet wound would happen in mere minutes to halt blood flow but the actual damage the wound had caused would leave her in pain and weakened for as little as a few minutes for a minor cut, to a couple hours for a bullet wound. Multiple wounds multiply the time to heal. A large wound such as an abdominal evisceration without stitching will take much longer for the seal to form to stop the blood flow, the pain and weakness of such a major wound taking as much as a day or more to recover from. While she can survive most wounds a few are fatal no matter her gift – wounds that strike the heart or brain. Nor can she repair any severed part, she would survive her hand or arm being cut off, the wound sealing itself eventually, but she couldn’t reattach the severed limb (unless it were done the old fashioned way by a surgeon).

    Side Effect: with the Phoneix heating her blood the Oyabun tends to run a bit warmer than the average human and while she is fairly oblivious to extreme heat, she is susceptible to the cold.
  • APPROVED SKILLS
    Highly trained in martial arts.
    Her swordsmanship is unparalleled as of now within the clan. Skill, speed and fluidity make her lethal.
    Has a balance and rhythm that can give her near silence on her feet.
    Has an uncanny knack for spotting fake art upon site.
  • APPROVED HISTORY
    A child of the streets she was taken in by Kaito, a yakuza boss who thought the bright five year old would make a good snitch, her pretty looks and large eyes for a Japanese female making others want to take care of her. He used this to his advantage and learned quickly the girl would only become more valuable in time. This foresight is what made the man put her through vigorous training, both her body and her mind. She was schooled in subjects normally reserved for men within the ninkyō dantai organizations as well as taught to walk in kimonos and traditional geta shoes.

    Back then…. her name was Wong Aiko. Aiko, child of love it meant. A lethal love by the time she was twelve and made her first kill in the name of her yakuza clan. Kaito only grew more and more impressed with the girl as she proved time and time again that no matter how often she was defeated, she rose back up to fight again… his little Phoenix. Her yakuza tattoo begun when she turned fourteen… the phoenix dragon the first of a body of work that would take years to develop… a symbol of the bosses nickname for her…. a symbol of her loyalty.

    By her early twenties she could no longer remember the number of deaths by her own hand and was responsible for keeping the “protection” books for Kaito, her sharp mind trusted with the multitude of numbers. He made her his first lieutenant by twenty seven when his former first was killed protecting the boss from an assassination attempt. This did not sit well with Masaru, the second lieutenant who had assumed he would be made first.

    More than once she was cornered by the vicious man… more than once the first and second locked in combat to prove their worth in front of the clan members… and time and time again she put him in his place. Her sword skills had exceeded anyone else in the clan thanks to Kaito’s continued rigorous training.

    But then came May 2010 and the world went insane. Kaito was killed in a manner that left her suspicious it was not the Nevus event, but Masaru that had killed him.

    It was a day she had been planning for long ago… skimming from the top of the books for more than 13 years to amass a small fortune in the event Kaito died and she lost her place in the clan. But, she had every intention of trying to take Kaito’s place as was her right. Masaru had other plans. A woman yakuza was rare…. a woman boss was unheard of. The clan was quickly dividing its loyalty and it was not in her favor. The infighting was making them weak, easy prey for the more organized clans to overcome and absorb.

    She had several loyal followers but Masaru had the backing of other clans…. they refused to acknowledge her as kumicho.

    Her life was forfeit among the clans, a target with a very high price on her head. And through it all she was learning she had not come out of the shift unscathed… her first clue when she had been shot… three times… and watched her wounds stop leaking within ten minutes…. the flesh inside seared with the sensation that she was burning within. And that was just the beginning… the attempts on her life soon becoming an almost daily occurrence as she fled one district to the next with her few loyal companions that now called her kumicho in defiance of the other clans.

    None of them were going to survive long… so she made a brutal decision…she and her small clan vanishing from the streets of Japan.

    In March 2014 they arrived in New York with a determination that she would build a clan here… a large and powerful clan that the yakuza back home would be forced to respect.

    She had a long way to go.

    With her small fortune she purchased the run down Guggenheim and has spent the last several months restoring it and amassing an art collection to fill it’s vacant spaces, an honest business to put before the public. The top floor no longer part of the museum but soundproofed as her home and office, headquarters for the Kaminari Yakuza clan. Hyato was now her first lieutenant… he kept the other four boys in line when she was not there.

    Wong Aiko was dead….. she took on a new name… Kagami Suzaku… Suzaku, the name of the red bird of lore.
