~Shima Otomo~


Why must the world be such a scary place...?

The Song of a Certain Truth| Rokugen Alice

Name: Shima Otomo

Nickname(s): None at the moment.

Alias: The Devil's Eye.

Role: Youmu No. 5

Age: Unknown, looks to be in their late teens, somewhere from 17-19.

Gender: Male.

Sexuality: Unknown.

Romantic Interest: TBA.

Height: 5'5-5'6 ft.

Weight: 105 lbs.


Type of Youmu: Youmu of Prophecy.
-This is the type of Youmu he is due to the fact that his powers are derived from a prophecy that his clan had received. His unique and defining characteristics come from what was spoken of in this prophecy, and as such the type of Youmu he is reflects that.

Side: Shima doesn't like Youmu who attack others and use their powers to hurt other people and gain power. However, more peaceful Youmu he finds to be perfectly fine. He finds that the same applies for Humans, those that hurt others and scare others to gain power aren't the type of people that he likes, where kind and compassionate humans are perfectly fine. However, although Shima doesn't have a biased disdain for Youmu, he still shies away from speaking to them, but not because they're Youmu, just because he's afraid.

Roles in Moumoku: He is not yet part of Moumoku, but once he joins he will probably have a role in surveillance or assisting others in battle from afar.

Hair Color: Depending on the lighting can appear to be a dark blue or black.

Eye Color: One of his eyes, his left, is black. His other eye, his right, is a crimson red.

Skin Tone: Pale.

Build/Appearance/Preferred Clothing:
Shima is somewhat fragile and small, not being very tall or having much of any weight on him. The reason behind this is because he suffers from malnutrition due to the poor conditions he was living in before he escaped. His preferred clothing would be more wintery styled clothing. He loves scarves and jackets, sweaters and gloves, etc. He wears a lot of heavy clothing and when he's not wearing jackets he wears sweaters that are far too big for him. His clothes are usually in darker colors in their outer layers, and somewhat brighter colors when it comes to shirts and such. He also wears several accessories on occasion such as wristbands, earrings, and rings.

Abilities/Weapons: Shima has powers granted to him by his red eye, and that he inherited from his clan, but his control over them is quite weak to say the least, and he really needs to practice them.
    Powers Granted to Him by His Red Eye:
  1. Telepathy: Shima can send messages to many people in a long range, even being able to make something like a telepathic forum where multiple people of his choice can speak to each other telepathically at the same time. He can see into the mind of others and read their thoughts, and if focusing hard enough read their memories. Drawbacks to his telepathic abilities include mental strain and that he grows quite attached to those he uses his powers on, especially if it's frequent. Through eye contact with his red eye he can also influence the minds of others, especially Humans, and even fully control others without strong will-powers. With practice he may unlock more telepathic abilities.
  2. Surveillance: With his red eye open, Shima can see practically anything in a 100 ft. radius from himself. His view can either be linear when he wants to see something from a distance from himself, or spacial when he wants to see what's going on around a certain person or thing.
  3. Blood Manipulation: Shima can manipulate the blood within him. He can manipulate his blood into sharp razor like projectiles, tendrils, weapons, etc. Currently, he can only manipulate his blood.
    Powers of His Clan:
  4. Gas and Poison: Shima can transform into a gaseous state when he needs a quick get away, however he can only stay in a gaseous form for approximately a minute, and he can't hold anything when in gas form, making him lose whatever is on his person. He also has a control over poison, able to spew poisonous gas from his mouth as an offensive attack, and to emit poisonous liquid that lies within his blood stream.


Shima is a generally quiet and shy person. He tends to not socialize very much at all, unless he gets close to the person and trusts them, even then he's not awfully chatty. He tends to be quite shy, not being the type to start conversations with others unless he's in desperate need to. He's soft spoken to others, even when taking a stand in an argument. Speaking of arguments, he's not one to argue and barely ever participates in confrontations of the sort, fearing confrontation too much.

Shima is a very caring and compassionate person. He would be the first person to help someone else in need, if he managed to muster up the courage to do so. He's very caring and empathetic, not liking to see people in pain or sadness. He is quite nurturing, liking to care for others who have helped him in the past. He's generally a quite weak person, so if someone were to have helped him, he would love to help take care of them and make them feel as good as possible, which others could end up taking advantage of.

Shima will definitely grow in personality as he meets new people and joins the Moumoku.

Trustworthy people.
Having time alone.
Hot chocolate.

People staring at him.
Being attacked.
Hateful people.

Memorizing things.

Can get too attached to people.
Easily frightened.

Being captured.
Being betrayed.


All of his family and clan died out one way or another, the major reason was that they were majorly targeted by Exorcists, and at times even fellow Youmu.

Within his clan there was always a prophecy, and although many couldn't completely translate it correctly, the loose translation was that one day a child would be born with one red eye, and that that child would be able to hear the 'Grand Demons' call. The prophecy stated that the child would be a vessel to the Grand Demon if the correct procedures were taken, the final step of which sacrificing the child on the clans holy shrine on a specific day, upon the Lunar Eclipse.

At first many Youmu and Exorcists didn't care much about the prophecy, not really believing it. However, when Shima was born with a red eye, and powers that one with the red eye were said would have, many Youmu wanted to take the child, and ultimately power for themselves, leading them to attack members of Shima's clan. Likewise, many Exorcists wanted to take Shima into their custody in order to prevent the prophecy from being completed, leading them to kill Shima's clan members who attempted to protect him.

Eventually, once Shima's clan was fully killed off, a sect of Youmu kidnapped him, keeping him locked within a cage, placing an eyepatch over his read eye and a gasmask over his mouth so he wouldn't be able to hurt them. They fed him poorly and had abused him in order to destroy his spirits. But Shima vowed that he would escape from them one day...and that day was most certainly soon to come...


So begins...

"How do you feel about your next solo coming up, Miss Dark?"

"What words do you have for the fans?"

"What is going on in your personal life at the moment?"

"Sorry~ But I have to go now!" Aya said, in her usual stereotypical voice that she pictured a flawless model would act like. She waved her hand and blew a little kiss off her hand towards the cameramen and woman before quickly hurrying inside her apartment, smiling and waving as she closed the windows.

After all that passed though, Aya locked the door and slid onto the ground, immediately taking off the annoying heels she wore and unzipping the tight and weird looking dress she had to walk around in, 'Being famous is a pain... I didn't ask for the attention...' She sighed to herself, still hearing the group of people outside.

A minute later when she finally realized she was inside her apartment, she saw one of the pillows being ripped apart by the smaller Youmu who lived in her house. They weren't very big, being the size of her palm or smaller. She stared at them while the three stared back at her, as if stunned that they were caught, even though their 'hiding spot' was in the center of the room.

'Again...' Aya let out a growling noise from under her breath as she made imitating expressions and actions towards the three, most likely threatening them since it was their fourth time tearing apart her apartment, as always. If there weren't people outside, she probably would have began to yell at them all and chased them before tossing them out the window (knowing that they'd just return in the end, anyways.)

Taking her warnings into consideration, the three Youmu made a run for it, running across the room; one hiding underneath her couch, another headed for her room, and the third one still stuck inside the plush of the pillow. With another exhausting sigh, Aya stood up, getting her back off the wall and her rear off the ground as she walked over to the shredded pillow and plucked the Youmu out of the fluff, as if it were a doll, "You're going into the corner tonight, punk." She smirked before tossing it at the wall, it bouncing off harmlessly like it were rubber and making a giggling noise as it dashed away under the couch as well.

"How was your day...?" A very small and quite voice asked. Aya turned around to see a female Youmu, being around 2 or 3 feet tall, staring right back at her. It was obvious she was roaming through the fridge since it was wide open.

"Do you want to go into the corner too, Yuuki?" Aya asked, growing more frustrated with the Youmu in her house. Yuuki was one of the first Youmu she found living with her, the one who first destroyed her apartment. Currently, the two have been living with each other, besides their love hate for each other, "You know what, never mind. I'm going out."

"Again...?" The little Youmu asked.

"They won't notice if I wear something 'hideous' and go out the back." The blonde haired young woman said, changing out of the ridiculous dress into regular jeans and a shirt, completely contradictory to what she would have to wear as a model.

"Then I'm coming too."

"You're annoying."

"I know." Yuuki seemed to have giggled mischievously, in her own quiet way as Aya opened the window and made her way outside from there while the white haired Youmu followed.


Hideki continued to look around for his partner, Sayuri Ami. While he did have a hate for her, the woman wasn't too bad, despite how lethargic she really was. At the moment, he was allowing other regular humans to find him, not really caring since he, as a Youmu, had a much more human-like appearance and liked to keep it that way. Besides, he was on the look out for that woman, so how was he going to get information? Hideki was definitely not going to ask any other monstrous Youmu, so he relied on humans.

"Excuse me, have you seen this woman anywhere?" He asked, holding up a phone with Sayuri's picture. The man he was talking to shook his head as he continued to walk down the road with his children, Hideki cursing quietly to himself while he continued to ask around.

Well, he did that for a while, but found it useless since no one seemed to have known where she was. This obviously got on Hideki's nerves, but things did brighten up after a little bit since he saw a wanted Youmu for the Moumoku. It was a small one, but wanted, nonetheless, and that's what counted.

It was a small one, blending in to look like a plant, but in Hideki's eyes, it couldn't hide. An advantage of his was his ability to scan the area- being able to find any breathing or living creature, especially Youmu, within a half a mile's radius. While using this ability, he found other Youmu in the area also, but he had his eyes set on the one trying to hide from him, "Found you." He said with a smirk as he leapt forwards, lowering his hand to grab the leaves sticking out from the leaf Youmu's head.

But his hand slipped and he fell into the planters instead. Many by passers stared at him, wondering if he was alright, but he ignored them. Why should he care? He wasn't human. He was a Youmu, after all.

Then the chase began; Hideki sprinted after the little dashing plant which other humans (without Sight) could see and reached his hand out to catch it. But it was way too fast for his legs to work, even if he was a Youmu. Hideki specialized in technology, but not running, "Dammit... Where's that woman when I need her!" He grumbled, more people staring at him as he sped up to catch the speedy plant Youmu.
