Battle of the Upper Kingdom [IC]

Postby Ken Shiro on Sun Sep 12, 2010 7:42 pm

9 years after the Alliances victory over the Borken Clan in the great war and peace still runs through the upper kingdom. With an uneasy agreement with the 3 kingdoms of the land wearing thin the time is growing short to bring all 3 together as one in harmony or to destroy each other in a lasting battle. With the Keniko clan claiming hold over all the land west of Uni they controlled the majority of the land. Clan2 control Ryimtos leg and lastly the Xin Clan controling the rest. With another great war near at hand each clan holds its breath and awaits the first move.

Mitsuhide;

Being one of the most trusted beside Shiro and Snow. The Sythe hanging on his wall reminded him of his father and how he had killed him. Blood brothers to Shiro and Protector to Shiro's Wife, Snow, he is always striving to be as powerful as his father once was.

Snow;

The victory over the Broken Clan had brought light and justice throughout the land. Now crowned as the rightful ruler of the city of Uni, she kept to her old ways, always keeping her weapons with her at all times with or without her royal armor. She married Shiro and place him as her General of her Right and as for Mitsuhide, she place him as her General of her left. It was around the time of Shiro's disappearance that Snow found out that she was pregnant and she kept that secret from Mitsuhide and the rest of the world. Snow's main focus was finding Shiro and after talking to Mitsuhide and gathering an army of people, she left Uni in search of her lover, who she hope she would find soon. May the gods give her a clear and safe passage to Shiro and may she find him, dead or alive.

Shiro;

Shiro took his place at Snows side after the wars end. Becoming the 3rd member of the Alliance council along with Snow and Mitsuhide. Shortly after the war he became blood-brothers with Mitsuhide and a husband to Snow.

War catalyst;

While out wondering the outskirts of Uni Shiro was ambushed by several unknown assailints after begin drugged and stripped down he was taken to an unknown location where he was to be executed. His armour was taken back to Uni and presented to Snow, the armour was bloodied with several knife holes init. They story was told as if it was bandits. After 6 years Shiro was still alive fighting in the arena, he had survived his excution in the arena and was forced to fight every day untill death. Slowly but surely Shiro began to lose his mind in captivity forgetting his name, his purpose everything about his was sinking and sliping away. The only thing left was the lust for battle and blood in the arena.

Shiro

*I sat quietly underneath the arena hearing the roar of the crowd as they cheered on the current fighters. The sound of swords clashing and blood being spilt, it is all i have known for so many years now. Once the fight was over the crowd grew silent and a man entered my cell throwing a mask infront of me.*

Guard;"Its your turn freak."

*I lent forward picking up the mask and staring at it. It was the front half of a human skull with a small leather strap, i turned it around and put it on. As i stood up the crowd cheered once again and began to chat.*

Reaper, Reaper, Reaper, Reaper.

*The Grim Reaper is what i have been known as since my first victory in the arena. The guard led me to the gates of the arena and walked away. I tightened the mask on my face and gloves on my hand as the speaker shouted Reaper and the gates flew open. I stepped out into the light, there were already 3 men waiting for me in the middle. I slowly walked past the 1st one and between the second two, i looked up at the speaker. After the crowd stopped he spoke again.*

Speaker;"BEGIN!"

*All 3 of the men attacked me at once, i swung my upper body back and extended my leg as i swept round unearthing 2 of them, I shot back up grabbing the 3rd on by the throat and lifting him up in the air. The second man got to his feet again, i smashed the weapon out of his hand and picked him up by his throat along side the 1st. I tured to the last man who had just gotten back up, I used the two men in my hands as maces as i smashed all 3 of their heads together shattering and killing all 3 of them. A huge spray of blood covered my torso and face.*

Snow

I walk through the royal garden, a large garden surrounded by blooming flowers of all colors and size, and I look around. I saw a small group of young kids, running and playing about and the servents were talking and walking about. I smile at the sight that I have watched for a long time. The sight of happiness, something that this world still has yet to get use too. I sat down near the marble fountain and I ran my fingers gently along the surface of the water and it was at that moment that I felt a familiar tug on my royal gown. I turn my head and look down at a young boy, 5 years of age with brown hair and blue eyes. I kneel before him and I place a hand on his shoulder. "What is it, Ken, my son?" I said softly, not wanting anyone around to know that this boy was my son to whom I have named after his father, my lover. Ken look me in the eyes and spoke softly. "When will father come back home?" I force a small smile and I ran my hands through his hair. "He'll be back soon. I promise. Now go on and play with your friends. I will have to leave soon, alright? I might not be back in a few days so I told the servants to take care of you. Don't forget, when you are in the presence of someone else you call me...?" Ken nod his head. "Queen Keniko." He said. I nod my head and kiss his forehead. "Good. Now run along." He nod his head and ran back to the group of kids. I stood up slowly and watch him for a while then I walk into the royal building. "Mitsuhide. Its time."

Mitsuhide

Standing Guard watching as his students and highly trained soldiers walked quickly past him into the barracks at the moment Snow had walked through towards him, he bowed slightly and nodded in acknowledgment "I have gathered a small force to accompany us my lady, They await at the gates." he looked at Snow and handed her blades to her.

*I had been taken back down to the cells beneath the arena and the mask taken back off me. I sat their waiting for my next opponent when a small weasil of a man walked into my cell and stood beside me. He began to smile and laugh loudly untill he slumped down next to me and put a hand on my shoulder.*

Man;"You just won't die will you? Dosent matter to me, keep winning and ill be rich."

*He stood up still snigering under his breath, just as he reached the cage door he stopped and turned his head.*

Man;"Die and not one person will miss you Reaper, a man like you only cares what they leave behind. So think twice before you fall in the arena."

*I tenced the chains that bround my hands and throught about escape. But where would i go? I do not know anything or anyone outside the arena. I would just be lost in a world i dont know. I have already escaped several times before but i always came back.*

Snow

I took my blades from Mitsuhide and I strap them to my waist. "Have you picked up any new leads, my friend?" I asked as I made my way to the stables where my horse was already prepared for me. "To be honest, I have my thoughts on where Shiro's whereabouts might be but I believe that it may take us towards the hearts of one of the clans and I'm sure you already know that we might be close to the brink of war." She got on her horse and she lower her head slightly. "I hope that perhaps while we are traveling and searching for Shiro I could try and come to an agreement with each ruler of the land."

Mitsuhide

"There has been rumors of him but these rumors do not point to a specific place" he walked with her and climbed atop his horse "My lady, we will find Shiro at any cost. We are the strongest forces in the land im sure they will bow down one by one" he smiled."Times are becoming harder i know however if war is the only thing these leaders are looking for then we have no choice but to fight" he began to walk the horse out of the stables and towards the small army he had assembled.

I sight softly. "Yes, but war is the last thing I want to get involve with...again. It seem like peace is much harder to keep up with these days." Snow walk her horse beside Mitsuhide's. "I want us to find Shiro as soon as we can and if possible I want to try hard to create alliances among the land so that we may all live as one together. Please help me to accomplish this, Mitsuhide."

*A scout came running into the great throne room of Kushu keep and stopped himself several feet from a man dressed in prestegious armour and a huge cresent head spear in one hand facing a map. The man was General Xin Ziaho lord and commander of the northern lands.*

Scout;"Sir, we have spotted a small force marching from Uni toward our lands."

*Xin turned to the scout without saying a word and moved towards his throne. As he sat he looked back at the scout.*

Xin;"I see its time then."

Scout;"Sir, this dose not seem to be a force of invasion. It is far too small, no more than a hundered or so men."

Xin;"None the less, prepare the men at our borders. No blood is to be shed without my word."

*The scout bowed and backed away before running from the keep.*

Mitsuhide

"My lady you have my word.We will accomplish anything, we have fought through tougher times than these" he smiled and looked back at his small army "MEN KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR KEN SHIRO. IF YOU SPOT HIM GO TO HIM AND BRING HIM TO US UNHARMED!" he shouted back as they all cheered in acknowledgment. "You have only my highest trained samurai and elite guards my lady, all at your disposal. Give me the word and they will do as you command"

Snow

I nod to Mitsuhide. "Yes. Thank you, general." I said, a bit distracted. My eyes scan the area and I notice that we were nearing the Northern desert, heading straight for Kushu. I frown as my thoughts began to weight on me. Kushu was a city, basically on a small piece of land surrounded by water or more formally, a large oasis. I also knew of General Xin Ziaho, lord and commander of the northern lands in which me, Mitsuhide and our small army was about to approach. I had hope that when I meet General Xin, we would not start off on the wrong foot but from what I knew about General Xin, even a small sign of trouble that could possible threaten his land will be delt with cautiously.

*After sitting in my cell after several more fights i heard doors unlocking and people rushing down the stairs. A man came up to my cell door and opened it, he moved towards me quickly and began to kick and punch me. The man was small and skinny his attacks were no more than that of a fly gently brushing against my arm.*

Man;"How the fuck did you do it? How did you send word out of these walls? Tell me trechous scum before i slit your throat."

*As the man went to throw another punch i moved to the side and grabbed him by the throat, i stood up clutching his neck while he hovered a clear foot off the floor.*

Shiro;"I did not send any word you fool. Threaten my life again and i will make quick work of yours."

*I threw the man to the ground and sat back in my previous place. The crawled back to his feet rubbing his throat.*

Man;"So your telling me you dont know that a group of Alliance soilders being lead by Queen Snow and General Mitsuhide are heading diectly towards us?"

Shiro;"Why would i know such things? And why would i care?"

*The man laughed a bit under his breath.*

Man;"So you dont know who Snow and Mtisuhide are? Bwahahaha!! This is perfect."

*The man strolled out of the cell and spoke quietly to the guards before leaving.*

*A group of soilders were waiting at the boreders of their land as Snow and Mitsuhide approached. The captain raised his hand as they met.*

"Halt, what is your business here?"

I raise my hand to stop my small army from advancing then I look at the captain. "It is I, Queen Keniko, I have come to ask permission to search your land and seek an alliance with Lord Xin." I said with fair authority.

*The captin inspects the men behind the Queen then at her General before speaking.*

"Very well, you are expected by Lord Xin. However your soilders may not enter the city untill Lord Xin deems it so. The same will go for your weapons."
_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________
*A few mintues after the man left two other soilders entered my cell and threw my mask at my feet along with the bottom half of a soilders uniform.*

Soilder;"We have a new game for you. Get dressed and follow us."

*The man smirked as i placed the leggings on and put the mask over my face. As i stood us the soilders clammped several more chains and bindings around my legs and arms.*

Soilder;"Do what is asked of you today and you might find yourself a free man."

*I looked down at the man but ignored what he had to say, i followed them out of the dungeon and through the citys back streets untill we reached the gates of city.*

Soilder;"Do not speak to anyone and never remove your mask."

*I dident care much for what he had to say this time but then again i already knew what was comming. They only gave me the mask for combat, and if im not in the arena theres only two possible reasons. Purge the city, or destroy this Snow and Mitsuhide. A part of me couldent wait to see which one it was.*

I hesitated then I nod my head to the captian. "Very well." I unstrap my swords from my waist and I gave them to Mitsuhide. "Stay here with the men General. That is an order." I said to Mitsuhide then I let out a deep breath. "Please, lead the way captian. I need this to be over as soon as possible."

*A scout came running over to the Captin and spoke quietly into his ear. After a few seconds the captin looked back up at Snow.*

"Lord Xin has allowed your men to take rest in the city limits while they wait. Please follow ms.*

*The captin led Snow and her force into the city.*

"Your men must stay here, your allowed one over to come with you into the citadel."

Snow

I look around the city and I nod my head. "General Mitsuhide shall accompany then." I motion for Mitsuhide to follow then I turn and enter the citadel, presenting myself proudly and gracefully. Being a Queen in my city, the way I presented myself was very important not only to myself but to my people as well. I start to wonder if Lord Xin would be open minded to the offer of an alliance and I knew that there was only one way to find out and that was to ask Lord Xin himself.

"Lady Keniko, your presence here is disturbing. Why do you enter my land with force behind you?"
________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Shiro

*I stood and waited just inside the city and watched as a small force entered the city, two people left the force and entered the citadel, they must be this Snow and Mitsuhide. The two soilders at my side spoke quietly to me.*

Soilder;"On my mark, destroy those men."

*The soilders were still information with their backs to me. But i already knew what was comming as soon as the deed is done they will try to kill me.*

Snow

"Forgive me Lord Xin but as Queen in my land I must travel with some protection. My force is not something you should be concern about. They are simply a handful of warriors whos duty is to escort me to my destination as safetly as possible." I walk slolwy to Lord Xin and I look at him with a soft gaze that held strong authority. "I am here to offer you a chance to form an alliance with my kingdom and I am seeking permission from you to search your land for my husband. I am sure you have heard of him. Ken Shiro." I pause then I lower my tone of voice. "The wind carry voices saying that my husband is here, in your land."

Xin

*I stood up walked closer to Keniko.*

"I had heard of your husbands dissapearence."

*I closed my eyes and took a deep breath remembering my love that was taken from me.*

"The last thing this kingdom needs is another war. Everyone in this land has heard how you fought valiantly against the Broken Clan and liberated its people. I respect that."

*I took a few steps past her opened my eyes again.*

"I give you and your people permission to search my land. However, if you find any clue or hint amungst my people my law still stands and their trial will be held here under my hand. In the end of all this it would be an honor to meet your husband face to face."
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Shiro

*The same scout that had entered my cell came out of citadel and whispered into the ear of the soilder next to me. The soilder smirked and lent into me.*

Soilder;"Sick em boy."

*I pulled the chain in his hand release the bindings on my hands and legs. I took a few steps forward towards the soilders before i stopped and moved around the soilders to their side. I lent into one of the soilders and smiled.*

"Run."

*I quickly lent out in the other direction grabbing two huge poles from underneth a sellers stand and throwing them like spears implaing the two soilders that were holding my bindings. I shouted out to the rest of the citys guards.*

"COME ON THEN!!!"

*Hundreds on city guards came running towards me, a kept battling off as many as came near me, the screams of people could be heard throughout the city.*
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Xin

*Hearing the screams and yells of my people i came rusing out of the citadel towards the screams. By now the citys guards had swammered the culprit keeping him locked down with many bindings.*

"Reaper. Why am i not suprized. Your execution will is long over due, and this time you will not survive."

*I turned my attention back to Keniko.*

"Apologises, this is one of the citys gladiators dubbed Grim Reaper by its people."

*The guards dragged Reaper back off into the dungeons keeping his mask tightly held to his face.*

"His exceution will be held shortly, would you like to accompany me?"
