a character in “Guardians: Facing the Darkness”, originally authored by Lightning Flash, as played by Calyx_Mason

Description

Image
Name: Taylor Richards

Age: 16

Gender: Male

Appearance: Pretty much to the letter. Taylor always dresses in subdued tones, and doesn't stand out much. He is 6'0" and is a rather lanky build.

Nationality: American- Japanese descent

Religion/Philosophy/Beliefs: Religion is the organization of superstitions. I don't need others to tell me what to believe, I'll make it up as I go.
Personality: Taylor at first looks like a geek, and at first he will give the impression of it. He is rather quiet, when talking for the most part, but that is only half of his personality. In reality he is not very much of an academic and hates studying and would much rather spend his time playing sports. However he does have a sense of duty that compels him to do well. When talking to others he can be rather sarcastic, and is actually quick to make laugh. Although, with that ease to laugh he is also easy to anger... sometimes. Normally he will contain anger towards people he doesn't know to maintain his exterior, but with people he knows he can be rather tempered. one thing that can break through his outer shell is his passion. When he is passionate about something, he will certainly fight to the death for it. (Proverbially of course)

History: Taylor grew up in Washington state to parents who divorced when he was five. So as long as he could remember he was always shuffling between his American father's house and his Japanese mother. However he didn't continue shuffling for very long. You see, Taylor's father was a karate teacher and International level competitor. (In fact that is why he went to Japan and eventually met Taylor's mother) So through Taylor's early years, his father was constantly pushing karate on Taylor, especially since Taylor wore glasses due to farsightedness from an unknown birth condition. Unfortunately for Taylor's father, Taylor wanted nothing to do with karate.
After his father's death, Taylor began living exclusively with his mother, and from then on led quite the ordinary life until his mother started to tell him about his ancestry on his 16th birthday. In Feudal Japan his family was well known for exorcists and psychics within the Buddhist faith, the last of which was his great great grand father, Kenjiro, who left and became a samurai for a near by lord. He was afforded one day after he began his task as a warrior to visit his family, where his parents blessed his sword to protect him from all that was evil in this world and the next, she placed the katana in his hands and told him to keep it safe for it may one day protect him as well. Later that year Taylor was accepted into Ab Inito Academy due to his work. Seeing a perfect chance to expand his horizons and see the world he accepted and moved out.

Fears: Heights, going blind, dying, Failure, spiders, tight spaces
Likes: Chocolate, Playing sports/games, Learning new talents (Ex: music, or other fun diversions)
Dislikes: Getting stuck, Hypocracy, Loss of control, screeching

Element: Wind
Weapon of Choice: a family heirloom, his great great grandfather's katana, Sairento No Ookami
Fighting Style: Karate, Kenpo,

Magic?: Untrained Psychokinesis and Clairvoyance

Weaknesses/Personality Flaws: Taylor is very shy and distant to new people, if in a dangerous situation he will not help them til he gets to know them

So begins...

[several moments ago]

"Hai[yes], mama, I arrived safely. Hai, the credit card works fine, I got the cell phone in the mail. Un [yeah], I found my room and all my stuff arrived undamaged. Hai, the sword got here with the rest of my furnture. My roomie, he's um, pretty cool I guess, the only furniture he had was a bed its frame and a small tv. Un, he flipped when I unwrapped the big screen and pulled the X Box, PS3, and the Wii out of the box. Watashi mo , anata ga daisuki mama , yoi yoru! [I love you too, mom, good night!]" Taylor said into the cell phone.
"Well, I'm at a new school in a totally different area, I've got alot of researching to do, ok, so that's where the cafeteria is, that's the library, that way to the classroom, but where is the gymnasium, uhg, oh there it is. What's all this about? Hm, scorch marks, burnt rubble, signs of a battle, is this a school or a war zone, I guess mom was right to give me the old man's sword." he said as he stealthily walked over to the building watching as a few students speak to a horrific looking statue. "I think they may be insane, but let's see what's going on?" he moved closer and closer, trying hard not to make any noise as he moved forward. "Is that a fin moving across the fuc*ing floor!" Taylor shouted out dim wittedly. "Shit, hi, um, I'm Taylor, a transfer student, what the hell is going on in here?" He said as the fin swiftly moved towards the group of teens across the way. "Hageshii Kaze , watashi no teki o attou![Fierce Wind, blow my enemies away!]" he said as he pointed his hand at the fast moving creature. "When the hell did I learn to do that?" he thought to himself in shock and awe.

Mud Shark. Mud Shark.... James had never fought one before. They mostly lived inland in wet places, places he had yet to travel to. He cursed when the fin headed towards him. Instinctively, he jumped up, avoid a set of teeth that appears where he was standing just moments before. Nonetheless, before he could bring his jian inside the shark's throat, it had disappeared beneath the earth. He cursed. Looking around, he noticed an asian-looking teen (Kojima) and he cursed again. Was everyone finding this place now? He had searched for his entire life for a place like this and random strangers were just appearing out of nowhere. When another kid appeared, sending a gust of wind at it, James' eyes widened.

"This is not happening," he muttered as the shark flew across the room, but recovered quickly, heading for the two newcomers. He growled slightly and thrust his hand out, causing a few icicles to appear and head towards the shark. One caught its fin, causing it to bleed.

"Oh good," Azariel stated as the shark swam towards James, "Blood Rage."

James glared at the golem before charging at him again, gathering an icy blue energy in his sword. He couldn't let the shark get him or it'd be all over for him.

"Watashi no yobidashi ha , Sairento No Ookami , watashi no teki de pasu o setsudan o kiku![Hear my call, Silent Wolf, cleave a path through my enemies!]" Taylor heard a voice deep in his soul repeating like a mantra. "What is going on, why am I hearing someone in my thoughts speaking Japanese?" he shouted as he crumpled to the ground, his head in his hands. The shark twisted and changed direction lasr second to attack the now defenseless Taylor. "Kotoba o hanasu , byouga burēdo ha tsumi no nai hito o mamoru tame! [Speak the words, Draw the blade, defend the innocent!]" the voice said as it rippled through his being. "Watashi no yobidashi ha , Sairento No Ookami , watashi no teki de pasu o setsudan o kiku!" Taylor whispered. The wind blew gently around Taylor and the sword rose from the ground before him, blocking the mud shark's attack.

"Kyoufu nitaishite joushou , tsumi no nai hito o mamoru tame , kono fumetsu no heimen akuma no subete no shurui no jouka. [Rise up against the Fear, defend the innocent, cleanse this mortal plane of all Demon kind.]" the voice rang out from deep inside Taylor's mind. "I have to help her but how?" Taylor said looking at the katana still stabbed in the ground. "Watashi o furuu , aite o pasu o suraisu. [Wield me, slice a path through your opponents.]" the voice called out again. "Alright, I'll do it, Sairento No Ookami , watashi ni kuru! [Silent Wolf, come to me]." he shouted and the sword pulled itself from the stone and rose to his hand. "Watashi no senzo no kiba o okori kono shishi no nodo ni ana o horu , sore o musabori kui masu. [Fangs of my ancestors, burrow your rage into this beast throat, devour it.]" he said as he ran towards the others, sword at the ready.
