❊|Power|❊
◘Water Manipulation || She may manipulate any water around her as she sees fit, as well as create it by using up moisture in the air and from her own body. She can whip it around and strike hard with it, simulate drowning, actually drown things, etc. Basic water manipulation arts.
◘Water Breathing || While it's not indefinite, she can breathe underwater for a short period of time before her human lungs need to return to the air again. She can stay underwater for three minutes without issue, and 90 seconds before she needs to return to the air again.
◘State Changes || She can turn any water, salt or pure, to another state. She can turn it into a mist for concealment, or ice for freezing targets, striking harder, piercing with water, and more. Ice is particularly helpful for creating weapons on the fly.
◘Temperature Control || She can control water's temperature in any state, though this is limited to water outside of the body. She can melt ice without fire, boil water, and super-heat mist into steam.

❊|Personality|❊
Positive Traits || Friendly - Despite how she may come off to strangers, she's actually pretty kind. She is never intentionally mean to anyone without good reason, and even then tends to resolve things peacefully and calmly as possible. That said, she has been known to knock people out if they push her too far...
Calm - Like a still pond, she is calm and serene. She keeps a cool head and is able to assess many situations from many perspectives. In combination with her kindness, she acts as a pretty good mediator within groups, provided they cooperate with her and each other.
Attentive - She has sharp eyes that catch on to things others may not realize. Due to this, she is pretty good at things like scouting and searching, as well as identifying traits in people displayed by expression (for instance, sadness, lying, etc.) and also makes her pretty quick to learn things.
Negative Traits || Bullheaded - She's stubborn and crude and doesn't seem to have much care for who hears it. If she feels strongly about something, she'll not budge an inch either physically or mentally to defend her position on it.
Femininity - She tends to forget that she's a female now, at least physically. As noted before, her language can be kind of crude and she doesn't care for dressing up too much. Though she likes the feel of a skirt, she tends not to care if the wind blows it around or if people see underneath. It's not something she's accustomed to caring about and doesn't seem to be changing that any time soon.
Temper - Though water may be calm, with enough outside force, her little pond of attitude can become a tsunami. Careful not to agitate her too much.
Likes || Tethys - Though they divorced due to their insane fertility and constant production of offspring, she still cares a lot for her divorced wife.
Meditation - As a critical part of her human development, she enjoys the act of meditation. It's what keeps her so calm in day-to-day life.
Video Games - Despite coming from a less... modernized Japanese home, she's enjoyed when she can get her hands on video games. She enjoys games with level-up systems and fantasy-themed RPGs.
Martial Arts - Her body's birth father is a monk who is a very skilled martial artist, winner of a national championship. He taught her basic self-defense to keep her safe and because she enjoyed it so thoroughly, she kept with it and became rather skilled in her father's art. The spiritual aspect of it entices her interests, as well.
Dislikes || Her Body - Formerly being a male Titan and remembering her past life, this new female body of hers is hard to adjust to, even after eighteen years. The heavy breasts, the cycles, the attention... gods, it's all too much for him. Her. She tries her best to deal with it, but it's just plain uncomfortable.
Sour Foods - They just don't appeal to her. The way they make her face pucker up and cringe remind her of electricity somehow. It's not a sensation she enjoys.
Fears || Flying - She doesn't trust planes or being in the air at all. She would prefer the crashing waves or the still air. Something to be around or beneath her as she moves. Just being suspended in air is terrifying and uncomfortable to her, as is the thought of falling from flight.
Strengths || Water - Obviously, being the personification of the sea and the Titan of Water, she is stronger when more water is present. There is more to work with and the mere presence of water seems to make her stronger.
Hand-To-Hand - She is physically strong and perfectly capable of handling one-on-one combat. She is trained to incapacitate, disarm, and in the most extreme of circumstances, kill with just her bare hands.
Weaknesses || Lightning - Being attuned to water, she's particularly susceptible to lightning and electricity. Something as simple as a static shock could be enough to fry her out or cause temporary paralysis.
Balance - Despite being pretty good at her hand-to-hand combat, her balance seems to be a bit off and her stamina is lower than it probably could be. Not being completely used to the body of a female, it makes her endurance and performance in physical combat lacking compared to what it once was.


❊|History|❊
Oceanus. The Titan thought to be the divine personification of the sea, the great river that circles the earth, the world-ocean. The son of Gaea and Uranus born with the power of water, he and his sister Tethys, who was also his wife, birthed many creatures into existence. They created many gods and goddesses of the sea, rivers, springs, and other bodies of water. The two of them even gave birth to three-thousand of a species that came to be known as the Oceanids, the sea nymphs that became patron goddesses of water masses, flowers, even clouds. The two were actually so fertile that their constant conceptions that their water-natured offspring constantly caused floods. Much to Oceanus's displeasure, they mutually divorced to keep from drowning the planet. His love for her never truly died, but he did what he had to do for the world and for balance.

Along the path came the Titanomachy, the great overthrowing of the Titans by the gods. Fortunately, Tethys and Oceanus took no role in the overtaking and were left to continue their ruling in the watery kingdom... albeit having to share with Poseidon, the god who consorted with his daughter, Amphitrite. All-in-all, it beat Tartarus. But even then, as time passed, he felt his siblings growing nearer. Their prison was clearly decaying. And just as they were, a force rebirthed Oceanus into the world.

As a crying human baby. A female crying human baby. And this girl was named Suijin after the water god that protected the girl's family's home. Ironically, one of her own children was watching over her through the duration of her life and she was unaware. For a while. Her memories of Titanhood seemed to vanish with her rebirth.

Her parents were two Japanese citizens, rather traditional ones who lived at and took care of a shrine. The shrine received very few visitors, but her parents seemed more than happy to clean and care for it to thank the spirit for its protection. Though she more or less lived a normal life and went to school and such like any other child, her home life was very traditional and formal. Her mother being a shrine priestess taught her manners and spirituality, while her father being a monk taught her to respect all things in nature, including man, woman, the trees, the water, and all aspects of the world. From a young age, the girl was very spiritual and polite, soon coming to enjoy the martial arts and caretaking of the shrine with her parents. She was blissfully unaware of her previous life for a while. That is, until a chance encounter...

At the age of twelve, she was playing in the still lake that was said to inhabit the god of the shrine. She wasn't careful and waded out too far, and being unable to swim properly, she kind of flailed herself out farther than she could manage. When her arms and legs were too tired, she felt herself slip under the surface and her vision blacken. She truly felt that she was going to die. She had almost come to accept it, deserving of her disrespect for her limits and nature. Until she heard a voice echo in her head.

"Father?"

That word alone seemed to awaken all the memories of the Titan sleeping within her, forcing her eyes open and easing the weight on her lungs. The water that invaded her lungs seemed to be of no issue as air returned to her system. With her eyes open, the image of a woman made from the water around her took her vision as it smiled, pointing up. "I think you're needed up there, Father. The poor monk and priestess would die if they lost you." With memories swirling around her, she seemed to understand it all clearly. Nodding in thanks to her daughter, she returned to the surface with ease, as though this girl had been swimming for all of her life.

From that day on, her demeanor changed as the Titan personality within her took its place in the girl. It was truly still her, but more... mature. Her language got more rough for sure, and occasionally she spoke in the dialect of the Titans when bored. Fortunately, her parents attributed this to puberty and the imagination of a young girl making up her own language. It was easier on Oceanus, or Suijin in this case, to not bother explaining that she was formerly a Titan. She rolled with her parents' musings and continued progressing through life, enjoying the new life they had. There was a lot to do as a human and there was no responsibility of safeguarding the waters since Poseidon had taken care of that in her absence. She found a human life in the Japanese country enjoyable. Humans themselves, while foolish and naive, were welcome in her heart. She now understood why the gods favored them so much, despite their destruction of the earth and each other. Because on a personal level, humans were kind. They were caring. They had so much creativity and willpower and she got to experience it all first-hand. She loved being a human now, despite the... well, foreign body. Keeping the name Suijin as her own, since she had grown accustomed to it, she decided to resume life as a human while still acknowledging her Titan memories. She honed her abilities in secret as much as she could, and even spent time with her daughter and caught up properly with the times.

At the age of 18, she decided to go on a journey across the world. She told her parents that it was spiritual, a journey of self-discovery. One to become more attuned to the world around her. They couldn't have been more happy that their daughter was so eager to see the world. And being at the age of eighteen, they couldn't do too much to stop her if they wanted to. Gathering what belongings she felt necessary to take, she boarded the first boat off the island country. The boat was headed to Seoul, Korea. Call it destiny or a fool's luck, but she felt a calling there. There was something in Seoul for her to find. And whatever it was, she was eager to see it through her human eyes. Because surely... surely it would be wonderful.

"So it seems my gut feeling was correct. There are others here." A gentle voice would come from the water as the three Titans spoke. Those who turned around would see a Japanese woman, clearly a foreigner speaking in a language that they would all inheritly understand. That of the Titans. An ancient dialect, long lost, but it would ring in their souls, their subconscious, something understood with ease. "How... nostalgic this feeling is." Though the circumstances were entirely different, each one seemed to be like the woman's siblings. She smiled as softly as she spoke, approaching them with a certain grace to her pose. The Japanese had a term for the way she seemed to be carrying herself. Yamato Nadeshiko, the "ideal" Japanese woman. She had been eavesdropping on the conversation these sort-of-strangers were having, how they spoke so openly of their past existence. It was charming, how human they all really were, though.

Unlike these folks, the dominant personality within them was that of the Titan, Oceanus. Perhaps it was how early she had awoken and quickly became in-tune with her past life. Perhaps it was the human's passiveness that was allowing the Titan to explore the world through her eyes. Needless to say, her position was clearly different than the others. But the human in her couldn't help but be amused by the whole situation.


"Now that we're in Korea, where are we going to go next, Mister Oceanus?" The soft voice of the human girl spoke to her Titan from within their shared mind. How strange Oceanus found it that a human would willingly share her body in this way. It was as if she was in the passenger seat of her own body.
"Hmm... I do believe I want to visit the Han River." Crisp ocean air filled the Titan's lungs as they got off of their boat, providing a somehow nostalgic and completely new feeling to her. "It has been quite a while since I had been able to check upon the spirits of my children in the world... and the Han River has always been important to the humans of this area. I wish to revisit. For old time's sake."



It was as simple a decision as that. To think that it would lead to a reunion with some of the others. She approached the three teens, all seeming to be the same age as her, more or less. Looking all of them over, it was hard to tell just by looking which Titan dwelled within their vessels... though the same could be said for herself. Waving a hand over her very light purple shirt and black shorts, the water that once coated her body seemed to glide off with ease and leave her once-translucent clothing now fresh and dry. If they truly were Titans, there was no need to hide her gift. And if they weren't, well... who would believe them if they tried talking about that little trick? "Forgive me just intruding on your conversation, brothers and sisters, but I was actually looking forward to seeing you all once more." With a slight bow, she rose and waved slightly. "How the hell've you all been, anyway?" Her dialect suddenly took a shift with that greeting as her smile widened. They all didn't seem to have their Titan be the dominant personality like Suijin did... but it was all well and good.

"I am the Titan Oceanus, reborn in the body of a Japanese girl named Suijin Aoimura. I go by her name now. Good to meet you all. Or see you all again. Whichever you all prefer." She laughs into her hand and lets out a soft sigh. "I wonder why some of you haven't awoken yet, though, while I have... Perhaps because the Olympians left me be and did not imprison me? Hm.." She shrugged in thought as she tried to match up Titan names to faces, but no real avail. At least Rhea introduced herself. And one other eluded to Mnemosyne... If only one would reveal themselves as Tethys. That would be the most pleasant reunion... but alas, all things in time. She seemed pretty amused by it all, but rather... uncomfortable at the same time. "Y'know. I really don't know whether to be addressing your human selves or your Titans. Your situations all seem... different from ours at the very least."

Mnemosyne || Mind/Memory Reading || #38ACEC ||


      "Ah of course," she nodded, "everyone wants to know about Greek mythos these days."

      He was really a sort of candid guy wasn't he? You can't blame a vessel for being wary, someone chuckled, not everyone has had an easy road as you have.

      Oh you're here again. Care to chime in?

      “Oh my, you really are a titan!”

      "I apologize if I am interrupting, but did I hear someone say 'titan'?"

      "So it seems my gut feeling was correct. There are others here."

      In reality everyone was ridiculously candid. At the very sound of the word "titan", three Titans gathered with their vessels humans in tow. These people were serious. So serious in fact that they couldn't leave the two to their own conversation.

      Hyun supposed that it had to be the case since she could hear all of their mental mumbling. Hyun had gotten skilled at exercising Mnemosyne's ability without having her butt her head in so she managed to tag everyone's thought styles within seconds of their speech and only managed a sigh. Rhea rumbled inside of the photographer, constantly prodding him like a nagging mother while Hyperion leaked excitement (like a dog the voice would laugh). In truth, the titaness very rarely contacted her and if she did, it was just for some warnings or to give her ideas so Hyun honestly regarded her as less of a person and more of a dying entity. That was basically what was happening wasn't it? She didn't even give the Korean girl a name so much as a feeling. Still, she could draw conclusions, she was a smart girl. Rhea was screaming "Mnemosyne" after all.

      "Okay well I didn't know about any of this so news to me," she said flatly after Kiyoto and Oceanus finished their introductions, "Hyun Ji Park and...Mnemosyne I guess."

Kumiko was more than surprised when even more vessels started appearing one after another. The next to arrive after her had shocking blue hair what Kumiko absolutely adored. Her expression mirrored that of awe when the blue haired girl first spoke. Inside of her Hyperion was giddy with the actuality of their reunion. If Kumiko were to be honest she had never had a lot of hope of even finding one of the other vessels, she travelled around the world now, sure, but the world was incredibly vast. Billions upon billions of people inhabited the world and with only twelve of those billion people being titan holders the blonde girl had been reserved about finding even one.

When the last to arrive, Suijin, was the strangest of the small group. She had seemingly emerged from the water, and when she started speaking it visibly startled the girl. She was aware that the language being spoken was not one of the three she already knew, but despite that she still knew what the woman was saying. Hyperion was in her head, mumbling about the old language. It didn’t sound like anything humans used to communicate; it was a lot more primal, maybe even celestial, yet Kumiko found she understood what Suijin was saying. It was kind of exciting.

When everyone started introducing themselves Kumiko felt slightly overwhelmed. The boy had started the introductions, his name was something very Japanese, he looked Japanese too so that made sense. Mikazuki something, it started with a K sound. Kitoya maybe? He had just said it and she didn’t want to be rude by asking, it would be embarrassing to say she couldn’t remember his name after him just saying it. What she did get was that he housed Rhea, which meant nothing to Kumiko, she relied on Hyperion for all her titan based information. “Rhea is the titaness of order and flow. She also birthed many of the Olympian gods.” Ko hummed to herself and eyed up the scarf clad boy. He looked just as overwhelmed by the sudden gathering of titans as she did.

The woman that appeared from the water introduced herself next, and she was nearly frightening. She seemed on a whole new level of closeness with her titan, and it was unnerving because she looked like a real god with the way she carried herself. Her powers seemed strong, probably from being so close to her titan half, and it was more than unnerving to Kumiko. Suijin had an air of superiority to her that Kumiko found she didn’t want to oppose and she didn’t really like it. The blonde girl was more then happy when the only person that actually looked Korean started speaking, taking the attention away from the woman.

Her name was Hyun Ji Park and although Kumiko tried her best to me bubbly and happy interacting with so many other people at once was still hard. At least Mnemosyne’s vessel seemed easy to talk to. She looked towards the shorthaired girl and gave her a bright smile, she wasn’t exactly sure who Mnemosyne was though, her name was ridiculous. Kumiko, try not to be closed-minded, my siblings are millenniums in age. And Mnemosyne is the Titaness of memory.

Hyperion scolded her gently, with the same tone parents took to their toddlers and Kumiko had to suppress the urge to roll her eyes. Her heart had finally calmed down from the initial meeting and Hyperion seemed to have wrapped in his own excitement in so it didn’t leak into her own demeanor, and as she looked around it seemed the rest of the group was starting to calm down from the initial meeting. Clearing her throat the blond girl attempted to draw attention to herself.

“Um, My name is Kumiko Takazawa, Hyperion has been with me since I was young, and I am a professional violinist! I usually live in Japan, but I’m on a world tour!”
She held up her fingers in a peace sign and gave everyone a big smile. Friendliness was key to making a good first impression on others.

Ivanna examined the titans around her in silence as she fiddled with the lead pencil in hand. At that moment in time there were three others, each different from the last. The blonde one was the first to catch her attention, perhaps due to her lighter color scheme or the look of awe painted across her features. Ivy couldn't quite figure out why she was awe-stricken, but she returned the look with a small smile. The next person who caught her attention was a skinny girl with short, brown hair. Just as Ivanna turned to examine the one male, another voice caught her attention. Another titan, by the sounds of it.

Vann's ice blue eyes landed on yet another girl with white eyes and jet black hair. The woman introduced herself as the mind of Oceanus, inside a girl named Suijin Aoimura. At the mention of Oceanus Anna felt Tethys begin to stir. That same excitement began taking over again, and Ivanna couldn't help but let out a short giggle, much to her displeasure. Stop it, the girl thought, shifting uncomfortably. She absolutely hated it when Tethys took over like that. Whether it be through emotions or actions, it was always disturbing to know that her body wasn't completely... hers.

The subject quickly dissipated as the only male of the group introduced himself as Kiyota, soul holder of Rhea (who must have been behind the hovering rocks.) Next was Hyun Ji Park, the taller female along with Mys... Mnys.. Mnemosyne? Ivanna blinked a few times as she tried to recall the titan's power. Something with the mind, yes? No, no, that was Themis. Mnemosyne was... something to do with mind and memory, yes? Yes. Ivy would leave it at that for now.

A clearing of a throat brought the blue haired girl's attention to expert violinist Kumiko Takazawa. The mention of her name rang a small bell in Ivanna's mind; she vaguely remembered listening to one of her pieces. They were unique, brash even, yet intriguing at the same time. She'd have to remember to give the girl a compliment once all the introductions were over. Speaking of introductions... It was about time these titans knew her name. And, of course, her titan.

"I am with the titan Tethys. My name is Ivanna Elliot, but most call me Ivy. It is..." She paused for a moment, cherry picking her words. "An interesting occurrence to meet you all. Especially this suddenly." The last part was more abrupt than she'd meant it to be. But she supposed the sentence fragment held too much truth to be suppressed. To meet four other titans at the same time, at the same place was definitely an interesting occurrence. And not to mention, an overwhelming one. She had not expected this, and while surprises were always appreciated in her book, some surprises were better than others. This surprise was not one of the better ones, no, but one that was laced with apprehension and was, in fact, an extremely fragile canvas. Pick the wrong paint and find your picture stained forever, harder to fix, and possibly cast into the abyss that is defeat; ugliness. Yes, this situation had to be approached with delicacy. There was no telling what the others thought of this war the titans were looking to wage upon the humans.

"Human annihilation." Tethys mumbled. "It's a touchy subject, isn't it? Approach it with care, Ivanna. I know that you don't know where you stand... So don't make any rash decisions. Not without your own consent, at least." Vann's eyes locked on the ground. The fighting that was bound to happen was sure to get the best of her; the adrenaline was sure to take hold... and Ivanna knew she'd do anything to keep it flowing... and if she was desperate... it might be against reason.

"...Of course not." After clearing her throat, she looked to the others with the slightest of smiles. "Well then. Now that matters of courtesy are behind us, I suppose we should get the point. I assume we all know of the... matter at hand, and I must ask where everyone stands. I will start." Ivanna took a deep breath. "I'm not sure which side I'm on. However, if I'm to be frank I will say that I am leaning toward... toward the titan side, but I do not hold this position with much confidence."

Seoul, South Korea | Han River





After his little introduction, Kiyota straightened himself up while waiting for the other girls to properly introduce themselves, too. He couldn't help but wondering why was he the only male vessel around here. It's not like that he minded that much but it makes him a little... stand-off, to say. Despite that, Kiyota couldn't help but having a nagged feelings that he was a rather normal individual, in comparison to the ladies in front of him right then. Though as much as he wanted to see this as a special and intimating reunion, the feeling is nothing different from when he first came across with a Titan years ago - which almost costs him his life. Am I going to put my life on a jeopardy line this time too? Shaking his head at the thought, he shouldn't say that out loud.

Rhea is still squeaking in an exciting way in his mind, though of course, she still retained a certain amount of calmness while acting all motherly-like - as she said. Apparently she was really thrilled to have met her siblings again after such a long time that Kiyota couldn't possibly think of because it is way beyond human comprehension.

Then, just moments after that, another Titan's vessel appeared, startled Kiyota once again. Turning his back to face the Titan known as Oceanus, Kiyota couldn't help but raised an eyebrow on how... special this person was. The Titan's vessel is just a normal girl like the other three girls around him right here, but what intrigued him was how eager she was to use her powers openly in the middle of the public like this. While it's true that his own power did get a little haywire earlier, there's nothing to worried as it's only a few rock. But luckily that at that moment, there weren't many people rather than them.

The girl then went on introducing herself, but the way she talked is quite informal, despite them meeting for the first time ever - as vessels, apparently. Looks like she's also a Japanese whose name was Suijin Aoimura, though it is correct that she's indeed the one who harbored Oceanus. And more than that, maybe she was acknowledging them as the Titans, rather than by their humans' identities. Kiyota could felt a strong presence of the Titan within the girl, which is completely different from him. It almost feels as if he was facing with the Titan himself but not the girl. Kind of a mind blow, isn't it?

After the arrival of Suijin and her introduction, the other girls also began to introduce themselves. The first one to do so was the girl whom he first encountered known as Hyun Ji Park and the vessel of Mnemosyne, as Rhea told Kiyota so. He doesn't really know how to feel about her. She doesn't seem to stand out and it looks like she's as normal as himself. Hyun looked quite a studious girl herself. That's all he could really figure out at the moment.

The next girl acknowledged herself as Kumiko Takazawa, whose name made Kiyota raises an eyebrow at. Her name and her accent proved that she's also a Japanese, like him and Suijin, and her Titan is Hyperion. Now taking a better look at Kumiko, Kiyota finally saw that she is somewhat familiar. Maybe he's seen her on some posters or something. And from the way she talked to them, apparently she's quite a friendly girl who can get along with just about anyone, despite being someone who can be considered as... famous? Nonetheless, it seems Kumiko was quite interesting than she looked. Though whether Kiyota is able to build up enough interests to get to know her more or not is beyond him.

And then, it comes to the last person, who introduced herself as Ivanna Elliot, though her nickname is Ivy with the fact that she's the vessel of the Titan of Tethys. Different from Kumiko and Suijin, it seems that this girl was quite picky and careful with her words, as if she's fearing that something will go wrong if her words didn't go as the way she intended. A little bit too cautious for everyone's sakes, isn't she?

But Kiyota couldn't care less. The way she reacted is understandable upon meeting the people whom you have never met before, but in reality, they did have strong connections with you, whether if you like it or not. Kiyota has learnt to live with it now and it's not like that he's complaining about anything.

When the introductions are done, they all fell silent for a brief moment. Apparently everyone is still questioning on how to react and what to say now that some of the ones whom they're supposed to look for are standing in front of them. Kiyota was intending to speak something in his mind, but before he could, Ivanna spoke up again and stated about what is known as the 'matter at hands' as everyone knows it, and asked which sides did they all stand for while stating her own point of view.

This is one thing that Kiyota never even wanted just to think of, not to mention discussing about it. But now that he's met some of his fellow vessels again, he knows he couldn't elude it again even if he didn't want to. Luckily that after his effort to hold the Titan down, Rhea has stayed quiet for now.

"Since Suijin-san here did show us what she's capable of, I think I should explain about my capabilities too." After looking around to check if there was anyone else watching, Kiyota raised his hand as some of the rocks around him began to float as if they are weightless, "I have power to manipulate gravity. Similar to telekinesis, I can move objects to my liking, ranges from something as light as these rocks to those that heavier such as a large metal bar. It really did save my life once. Though sometimes it did go out of control a bit like what has happened earlier."

Then, Kiyota flipped as they all fell down and lay on the ground again. Taking a deep breath, he fixed his scarf a bit before started to speak up, "I know that sooner or later, I will have to take this matter into consideration. No matter what my so-called Titaness always nagged me about, I have my own will and I never allowed her to manipulate me to do as her liking. While it is true that I'm also a vessel like you all, the decisions that I've made are solely mine. Unlike some of you, I don't often communicate with my Titaness. Which is why, I can say with certainty that destruction is something that doesn't exist in my dictionary."

Setting his gaze somewhere else, he continued, "I wouldn't say that I have the happiest of a past, living as a person. I couldn't defend humanity for what they've done for this planet either. But in my opinion, I don't agree that total annihilation is a wise solution for everything. The weight of a life is way heavier than that and it shouldn't be treated like some sort of trash to be dispose of. Like you, I didn't have a clear decision of which sides to stand just yet, but I most certainly will never kill a single living human as long as I live. That is my ideal."

Looking at his watch, Kiyota then spoke up, "As much as I want to keep the conversation going with you ladies, and enjoy this 'happy reunion' between the Titans, I still had a college to attend. So I have to take my leave for now. If what is known as 'fate' has decided, we will come across again."

Turning his back, Kiyota then walked away from the other girls and heading off to the bus station. While sitting on a bus that took him back to his university, he couldn't help but wonder if he will meet them again soon.

Mnemosyne || Mind/Memory Reading || #38ACEC ||


      There were so many thoughts swimming around in people's heads...mostly about her titan's name. Mnemosyne. Mnemosyne. Men-o-syne. M-nemo-sin. Ne-mo-syne. Apparently it was quite the tongue twister even if the names of the other titans were just as ridiculous (looking at you Hyperion and your battery-brand sounding ass). In Korean it would be phonetically translated as "므 네모 시네" and that was essentially how she read it in her head whenever her titan felt the need to converse. She didn't very much like speaking in Greek as transferring from one written system to another was tough work. Plus Mnemosyne chose to live in her so she had to learn the language. It was like the rule of immigration or something.

      Reading for words and literal content of the other vessels proved much harder as many of them were Japanese (or "Jap dogs" as her grandfather called them) and she had little interest in learning Japanese. She could only glean bits and pieces from the titans and pieced together that everyone was as wary as they were relieved to find others of their kind. The time that felt like mere moments to them was actually around a minute or two of internal conversation that Hyun let herself soak in as Mnemosyne reminded her that she should probably be saying something.

      Aren't your siblings more worried that you aren't speaking up?

      It's not my problem. I'll barely have an impact on this upcoming war, I've already seen it coming.

      You are the titan of memory not future seeing.

      The future merely consists of the consequences of the past and present. I'm only here to give you insight on both.

      That's not very helpful or even decisive.

      Neither of us are strong in that department. I had nine children after all. I just couldn't decide on one.

      Nothing further came of the conversation as Mnemosyne dissipated into silence and Hyun stared at Ivanna who asked about choosing sides between the humans and the titans. The question caught her off guard as her titan felt completely content to leave her in the dark regarding important matters such as human-titan war, the destruction of the environment, and anything missing from the history book. She was content to let Hyun swim in uncertainty now that she met four others of her own kind, one of whom made it clear that she was likely heading toward the titan side and the other completely devoid of human personality. Hyun didn't really have an answer per se because she had very few attachments in the first place. She could live with her friends or she could find new ones.

      On the other hand she couldn't exactly find new friends if they were all dead right? And she was human. Would she be dumped once the titans got their way? If that were true it was really, really screwed up. The idea didn't so much horrify her as piss her off because the titans could very well be that cold. They believed they were above humanity and it was humanity's fault that the Earth was slowly degrading (never mind the lack of divine intervention) and that didn't agree much with her.

      Still...her apathy knew no bounds.

      "I just want to bike and play video games," she shrugged.

It was the blue haired girl, Ivanna was her name, that brought to their attention why the titans were inside them in the first place. It was a hard reality for Kumiko, and often with Hyperion’s kind demeanor she forgot that the god inside her sought for the end all of humanity as a species. But because she had doubted ever encountering the other vessels whenever Hyperion had brought up his mission she had always tried to brush it off and give halfhearted commitment. She could feel Hyperion stirring inside of her, his euphoria over the fact his siblings had gathered, that they were already speaking of human annihilation. It was an excitement she could not say she shared.

It was only once Ivy announced that she was still undecided did the knot in her gut loosen ever so slightly, at least she wasn’t the only one on the fence over the titan mission. There wasn’t much hope, considering she said she was leaning towards the titan side, but hesitance was all Kumiko needed as confirmation that she was not abnormal for being unsure of her stance. “I cannot believe that girl even has any hesitance towards the cause.” Hyperion quipped in the back of her mind, and it made her nervous about admitting her own reluctance.

The Japanese boy was the next to voice his opinion after Ivy, and unfortunately he did not restate his name. He did, however; give them a small demonstration of his power. It was cool, and he seemed much more powerful than Kumiko. His ability to change the gravity around him was quite simply astounding, the rocks that hovered around him probably had no gravity acting on them at all, and that was amazing. She couldn’t keep the amazed smile off her face as he showed them his power. It could really be used to deal damage in large quantities, and possibly genocidal.

She was caught off guard when the boy then completely rejected the goal of the titans, and Kumiko could physically feel Hyperion inside her recoil at the statement, and even as the boy went away she couldn’t find it in herself to move. Hyperion was constricting himself around her mind in his anger at the boy, it actually hurt to do anything other then stand still, but he quickly regained himself. The experience did nothing more than frighten her into revealing her reluctance to join the titan cause, and Hyperion only encouraged her to voice that she was for the titan cause, as if it might influence the others to stay true to the titan cause. She cleared her throat, changing the topic instead to what they boy had mentioned earlier.

“Um, Hyperion is the titan of light, but his abilities deal more with fire… I can’t really do anything with actual fire though, and I tend to just run a high temperature, but I can do this!”
The blonde girl took a deep breath, enjoying the feeling on her expanding lungs before she exhaled through her nose. As she did, plumes of smoke exited her nose, falling around her in lazy clumps and coating the ground around them in something that resembled fog. When the girl finished she bent down and ran her fingers through the thick smoke, it broke apart at the disturbance and reformed to create a few smokey rabbits. The little creatures seemed to come to life, darting around the small group with actions that appeared they had their own consciousness. The defied logic though, and were able to hop into the air and around them without need for solid ground, hovering and floating. The blonde girl smiled, pleased that her practice had paid off before she dissipated the little creatures. “That’s all I can do though… I also am unsure about my allegiance.”

She could feel Hyperion’s shock rock her body, and it quickly turned to anger, and then betrayal. She felt guilty, of course, the titan had be crucial to her survival since birth, but she could not just give up on humanity because of that. The titan inside of her was angry now, but surely after some time they could talk through it, Hyperion had always been reasonable and understanding, she was confident in that.
