1,689 readers have visited this universe since NightBlaze created it.

Introduction

Legend has it, that twelve people, were chosen to protect the power of the Zodiac Stone. Image

This stone held the power of the universe, and upon receiving its protectors, it gave them each a Zodiac Sign, and a power that went along with the sign. Leo, Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces. Each symbol had a Guardian to protect it. Each Guardian had learned how to harness the element of the Zodiac sign, for their own advantage. For centuries, these twelve have protected the Zodiac Stone with their lives. Until the day a demon had emerged from a parallel universe known as Ioka. This demon and his followers tore through the village of the Zodiac, stealing the Zodiac Stone from the Guardians. Tearing away memories. The Guardians of the Zodiac, were left with no memory of anything.

For a thousand years, the Zodiac Stone laid in the hands of the demon. The demon, trying to use the power of the Zodiac Stone to kill off Earth. The Guardians have all had families, died, and let the next generation do the same, all while the powers of the Zodiac get passed down from generation to generation, just waiting to be called upon.

Now the year has come, it is 2012, and the Zodiac Stone has chosen it's new Guardians. Sending out powerful signals, the stone has activated the Guardian's powers, calling to them, calling them to Ioka. But the demon knows about the reawakening of the Guardians, and has sent his followers to stop them at all costs, and to gain the Guardians' Powers to use the Zodiac Stone. Only the Guardians can see these black figures, and only they can kill them, but the followers, known as Demoirs, can kill humans, and other mortal things. Image

It is up to the Twelve Guardians to stop the demon, but will they be able to figure out who they really are in time, or is Earth doomed? You make the story.

((This was a bit hard to write but I managed it, hooray =D ))


Vade quickly stood up he felt a bit disorientated. He didn’t know what’s going on, not able to see anything at this point is driving him nuts. He attempted to rip the darn bandage off from his eyes but his attempt quickly failed by grandfather he quickly grabs a hold of Vade’s wrist “don’t” He said firmly, Vade reluctantly lowered his hand. He heard a car of some sorts pull up near them he briefly heard something about a private jet to Scotland it’s a bit hard to hear anything due to the mass panic of the people around them. Taylor quickly guided him to the sound of the engines Vade heard another couple angry roars. Taylor hurried his wife and his grandson into the car and quickly entered himself and shut the door.
“Is that kid hurt?” a man named Roger asked Taylor. Vade stirred in his chair he didn’t want to be reminded that he’s wearing a bandage or it’ll make him more anxious to take it off. “He’s fine we need to worry more about not letting them notice these two.” Taylor pointed out to Mistelle and Vade “I don't want to know what they’ll do with them if they find them.” Vade forgotten that he was meeting with another Guardian he felt a bit relief, he was glad that he wasn’t the only one that has “special cases” Vade took off his duffle bag and let it rest on his lap. He kept going back to remembering the haunting roars of an unknown creature. “I wonder what they look like” Vade murmured to himself. He digs through his duffle bag till he felt his slingshot he let out a small grin “I hope this adventure becomes more interesting.”

Character Portrait: Skye Thomas Character Portrait: Astrea Mundis

Skye frowned as she watched Astrea disappear into the distance. Glancing down at her still-damp hands, she let the partially chewed pastry fall to the floor of the bakery. Astrea certainly was... odd.

Letting out a nigh-hysterical spurt of laughter at the thought of being given a half-eaten croissant as an apology, Not even the strangest part of the day Skye walked to the door, placing her fingertips on the handle. Her face slipped into a frown again, she didn't know where to go.
Should she try to follow Astrea? She knew which direction the girl had run in, but had no idea of her intended destination. She felt a pang of worry for her, though she had only met her that day, there was something extremely familiar about her... Skye shook her head slowly, she couldn't put her finger on it, but she felt as though she knew her.
And they both seemed to have Powers? something unusual happening them.

That thought prompted Skye to lift her hands to her face, wincing as the movement caused the cut along her arm to open slightly and start slowly bleeding again. But she hardly noticed the blood, she was far more interested in the water droplets falling from her fingers. Wiggling her fingers to shake off the drops, her eyes widened as more appeared, sprinkling onto the floor.
She clenched her fists, her eyes mirroring the closure. Skylar Caroline Thomas her mother's voice echoed in her mind, Stop dithering about and do something.
Skye nodded once, firmly. Reaching for the door handle again, she stepped out into the now slowing rain.

Character Portrait: Hoshi Futago Character Portrait: Ciara Alexandra Faye

"Okay. Yes." Hoshi mouths, whirling herself around a bit and leaning back against the side of the seat, close enough to Lexi to feel at ease by her presence, but not too close that she might distract her.
Hoshi returns to the book looking for answers. For the next several hours she remains absorbed in the book reading up on everything that Master Tetsume had written in it. It's very thorough, very informative and very disturbing. She finds the whole notion of her being some sort of 'Zodiac Super Hero' to be absurd. She has never felt that she was special, but always did notice things that happened around her; the wind and fog being the two most noticeable, and finding them strange. She now understands why, sort of. As a 'Child of the Air' as Master Tetsume describes it, she has an affinity with activities and creatures of the air, this is why she has always found things that float or fly to be fascinating, why she always stopped to marvel at the paper hanging along the breeze.

As she pours over the book, an odd thought comes to her. She peeks over at Lexi who is still engrossed in her music. She wants to learn more about herself and her 'Zodiac-ness' but doesn't want to disturb or upset Lexi. She motions to Lexi that she's moving over toward the rear of the plane and once reseated she opens her mirror again. She looks at her reflection half-hoping it doesn't work.
At first there's nothing, she makes the same silly faces she did before and still nothing. "Hello." she whispers to her reflection. "Are you there?" she whispers again. Still nothing. "Well, that was a stupid idea." she sighs.
"Hello." a voice from the mirror whispers, catching Hoshi off-guard she nearly drops the mirror. The face in the mirror giggles a little, "Hi." the mirror whispers again.
"Oh, good." Hoshi sighs, "You are there."
"Sure am." the mirror replies.
"Who are you?" Hoshi asks unsure if she wants to hear the answer or not.
"I'm you."
"I know that." she snaps back. "At least, I think I know that." Hoshi says running her fingers along her mouth and through her hair. When she gets nervous, she plays with her hair. If she gets stressed enough she'll sometimes chew on the ends, a habit that annoyed many of the monks at the temple.
"I know what you mean." her reflection adds, "You want to know what I do for you. Or to you. Or whatever." Hoshi nods to her reflection. "Look, I am you. Well, I'm a part of you. Kind of like the Yang to your Yin. But, I'm also kind of your sidekick. I complement your weaknesses. I am here to help you out. If you get into a jam, I can help you sometimes."
"Help me how?" Hoshi interrupts uncertain of how a reflection can aid her against those things.
"That's for you to figure out and decide. I'm YOUR helper. So, I'll be there when you need me. If I tell you how I think you should use me, that situation may never happen. Understand?" Hoshi nods a few times suggesting she understands and then begins shaking her head because she really doesn't understand.
"That's okay. Let's try this. Suppose I tell you, you can use me to defeat the Demon. Cool, right?" Hoshi nods. "But it's not." the reflection says shaking her head. "What if you never meet the demon? What if the Demon is different than I thought it was? What if it uses a different strategy? What if I tell you how to defeat it in it's lair and you meet it on the beach? Then my ideas would be useless. Understand?" Hoshi nods finally grasping what the reflection is saying. "You girl, you have to decide when and how you'll use me. I'm here for you. Trust me, I'll help out anyway I can, because if you go away, so do I."
"But, how? I mean, what if the next Gemini doesn't look like me. Then what would you look like?" Hoshi asks fascinated by her own question.
"Good question. Then the reflection would look different because it would be different. I'm YOUR reflection, so I am YOU. Just like you, I can't be anything or anyone else. Okay?"
"Yeah." Hoshi nods.
"What you should do now, is put away the mirror and sit and read that book, so you have a really good understanding of what it is you're in for. If you have questiuns, ask. If I can help I will. Decide what it is you wanna do, what you wanna be. What are your strengths and weaknesses and how can I help you? That's what you should decide on. Got it."
Hoshi nods and closes the mirror, returning to her book.

Isis was confused now. She didn't know what to do and she was alone...oh so alone. She looked around, and then back at her hands. There was so many unanswered questions, and now she was completely separated from everyone. Where were the other girls, and where were the other Guardians. Would she find any of them before the Demoirs attacked?

Hoshi climbs off the plane and heads for the counter at the airport to have her passport cleared by customs at the airport in Scotland. When she turns around she doesn't see Lexi around anywhere. "I wonder where she went?" Hoshi murmurs. The woman was there as she walked to customs and now she's gone.

"No, loitering in the customs area, Miss." a man with a thick Scottish accent says, forcing Hoshi to move on.
"I hope everything is okay." she says to herself as she walks out of customs to the lobby of the airport. She isn't sure what to do now. She was relying on Lexi to lead her to where she is supposed to go. She buys a hamburger at the airport fast food place and sits down on a bench and waits for someone, anyone or anything to happen.

After a long car ride Vade was dropped off in front of the airport. Removing the blindfold his vision was normal again he didn’t see any red silhouettes searching his bag he pulled out his plane ticket and passport. Vade sighed regrettably “I wish I said a decent goodbye to my grandparents.” Vade looked at his watch his flight will be in about thirty-minutes “This is going to be a long wait for me.” Vade hurried along into the airport to take another step in his journey.
