[Juro Yamada]
___Nicknames___
[N/A]

[17]
___Physical Appearance___
Image

[Heterosexual]
___Race___
[Human]




【B A C K G R O U N D ✦ I N F O R M A T I O N】
___Hometown___
[Kakin]

___History___
[Juro was the youngest son in a long line of guardians to the Kakin royal family, for every prince born to the royal family the Yamada family would in turn produce a son as an offering. Juro was prepared from the time of his birth for this assignment, but being the fifteenth son didn't add up to the fourteen children of the royal family. His life was therefor put on hold in perpetual training until the time came when he might be needed. Of course this fate did not sit well with young Juro who was anxious to see the world and put his skills to practical use, even the thought of inevitably using them only to serve as a bodyguard was distasteful to him.

Without consent or notice Juro left Kakin and has been on the run ever since, although he doubts he is being pursued. At least not until another son is born to the royal family, in the meantime however Juro has his eyes set on a new goal, a hunter license.]

___Personality___
Juro isn't a particularly sociable person, he can be very blunt and abrasive and isn't all too interested in helping others unless there's something in it for him. His entirely life was designed with the intention of serving another so he rebelliously goes out of his way to act purely on self interest. However, his actions contradict how he feels towards others and he is far more helpful than he lets on, especially with people who have shown him kindness in return, his nature is fiercely loyal even if he tries to deny it.



【C O M B A T ✦ I N F O R M A T I O N】
___Inherent Ability___
► Poison Resistance ◄
[From their birth the children of the Yamada family are given small doses of every known toxin both common and rare, as a means to make them as more suitable protectors. Even beyond that they are trained to identify poison on taste alone and have further refined that immunity, poison can still have lingering effects depending on strength and purity but most are non lethal to the Yamada bloodline.]

► Keen Eyes ◄
[The red of his pupils are a result of a Nen infusion to the eyes, allowing them to be switched into a state of Gyo without the need of the basics of Nen. In order to detect any unforeseen threats the Yamada line is trained as somewhat of a portable surveillance system.]


___Skills___
►Assassination◄
[Juro was taught how to kill since birth although he has never used it in a real life scenario, he has no experience outside of simulation. However, these simulations were designed to hone his skill for practical use, his assassination skills are top par although his lack of experience leaves him lacking in areas of judgment.]

►Service◄
[On a side note of learning lethal skills the Yamada family instills the necessary homemaking skills in case there is a need, essentially making them combat butlers of a sort.]

►Survival◄
[Juro is more than capable of living off the land if it is necessary to avoid civilization for extended periods of time. He has knowledge of tool crafting and various edible plant life, as much if not more so than any survival book.]

So begins...

⋙Location: Whale Island|Date: December 19th|Time: 5:30 am⋘
The streets of the normally quiet town were packed with people. Enthusiastic vendors quickly selling out of any and all items people deem useful. December was always a busy time for the town, but this year it seemed as it seemed like it was busier than usual.

The busiest place in the town was the harbour though, about two hundred people had swarmed around the docks, stashing bags wherever they could find free space. The hopeful applicants were counting down the minutes until they could board the boat, although some were more energetic than others.

After what seemed like hours, although for some it actually was, a solitary crew member announced that they were now allowed to board. Despite his plea for people to board in an orderly fashion, he was forced to bolt out of the way of the stampede of people rushing below deck in hopes of grabbing a hammock.

A few minutes later the boat began it's exit out of the harbour, leaving behind the now deserted town.

⋙Location: Whale Island|Date: December 19th|Time: 5:30 am⋘
Kita dashed onto the boat, helping lead the pack of people following behind her. The small black duffel that rested on her shoulder thumping across her back.

Being the third one to make it below deck, she managed to get one of the hammocks below deck. It wasn't that the boat was small, it was one of the largest boats that came into the harbour. Though since they packed the boat to it's maximum capacity, there wasn't enough hammocks for everyone. About a third of the people on the boat would have to sleep on the floor, and even though it was only one night, Kita did it want to be one of them.

Once she had placed her bag on the hammock, she made her way up to the main deck. She waved at her family who were standing on the docks. Her mother had decided to come into town to see her off, a rare event since her mother tended to avoid coming into town, sending her stepdad to get things instead.

Kita stood there waving until the harbour completely disappeared. Sliding down the side of the boat so she was sitting, before letting out a sigh.

"I can't believe I'm finally here." Kita said to herself.

Juro arrived as the crowd began to pile in, the journey from Kakin had been long and arduous and as far as he was concerned it included more than enough boat trips to last a lifetime. As he made his way to the focal point of the crowds attention however, he let out a resounding sigh. Although just as quickly as he was flustered a simple shrug is all it took for him to get back on track. "One more time is all, I can deal." Juro reassured himself, as the crowd began to slowly pass him by. Before he'd realized it he had lost his place and was dead last behind the frantic crowd.

As the line continued Juro stepped to the side and toward the ships stern far out of the way of the raving pack. Taking a few steps back Juro positioned himself for a vault and when his trajectory was aligned he dashed forward and with an arched leap made it just barely on the Ships side. Pulling himself up the rest of the way gave Juro time to question if this alternative was really worth it, despite the brief moment of regret however, he managed to make it safely on deck. His crucial checkpoint was finally reached on the road to acquiring the title of 'Hunter'.

Finally after the long journey there was a moment of respite, and Juro placed his dusty satchel at his side as he rested his back on the ships deck. Unlike most he wasn't interested in a room in a cabin, he was too used to living beneath the clouds and sleeping beneath the stars. As he glanced at the rising morning sun above, a grin shined brightly upon his face as the realization sunk in that this was it, that start of his dreams to come.

Asimov had been waiting a fair distance from the crowd. He had his bag slung over his shoulder and he had been passing the time by playing one of his gamepads. Though he was beating the game with little difficulty, he was actually barely paying attention to it. Instead, he was scoping out the competition. Most of them didn't stand a chance and were most likely not even going to make it across the ocean intact, let alone the Hunters Exam. Though....he had to admit, there were a few that caught his eye.

A blonde haired kid around his age that seemed......off? Something about the way his moved. He had definitely received training in some kind of stealth ability as he placed every foot with caution almost instinctively. A guy in a hood that carried himself like a swordsman. All swordsman sort of walked a similar way he had noticed, this guy was no exception. There was also a tough guy who looked around his age, but he didn't show him much time, guy looked like he could beat up most guys in the crowd, but something about him just made him seem like a......a lackey.

The two that grabbed Asimov attention the most where two of the only females among the crowd. One looked like she had just stepped off a farm, and the other looked like a 13 year old kid. Definitely had the energy of one. Though her earlobe length and eye separation stated she had most likely peaked early and was much older, probably closer to his age. Still, for some reason he wanted to underestimate the red haired girl, which made Asimov nervous, because their was something deceiving about that girl. She was hiding something.

More data was needed to properly assess them all.

When the call was made and the crowd began to rush on board, Asimov simply scoffed. He bent down and launched himself in the air and landed on the deck of the ship. He was confident no one had seen. He leaned against the railing of the ship and continued his game.

That's all this was, just another game. Asimov has never lost a game to anyone or thing. The Hunters Exam was just one more thing to beat. He was going to keep on beating these games until he was beaten by the unwinable game, the game of existence.

After awhile, that red haired girl came to the top of the deck and began to wave good-bye to the crowd. He began to follow her gaze into the crowd using his peripheral vision. She seemed to be waving to two people specifically. One, by her hair, eyes, ears and nose could easily be identified by either her far older sister, or more likely, her mother. The man seemed to have very little in common with her. Too old to be her friend, most likely romantically involved with the mother by the way they were standing . Step-father? Most likely. He seemed......powerful. Like Cici strong. That guy was no joke. Prey for the pour soul who tried to keep her out past curfew.

The girl then made a proclamation, that was slightly drowned out by the quiet moans of the boy who thought it an intelligent idea to tie himself to the rigging. Asimov hope he didn't plan to sleep there, as it was most likely going to rain soon, and if you sleep in the rain, you get sick......like not move for a few weeks sick. If he's planning on passing the Hunters Exam, he better rethink his strategy.

Asimov decided to make idle chat with the girl. He turned off the gamepad and pocketed it. He slid up to her and gave her a friendly smile.

"Hi!" He extended his hand down to the girl, now realizing he was almost a foot taller than her. "I'm Asimov. Sounds like being a Hunter is something you've wanted for some time. Couldn't help but overhear you earlier. Can I ask......why?"

⋙Location: Whale Island|Date: December 19th|Time: 6:00 am⋘
Kita stifled a laugh at the seasick man next to her. In any other situation sh would probably find him intimidating, but found it amusing that he had been reduced to reciting nursery rhymes. The only other people she had ever seen act like this were colleagues of her stepfather, who had obviously never been on a boat.

Kita was so wrapped up in the scene unfolding before her, she neglected to notice the boy standing next to her who was playing on a game pad, that was until he spoke to her.

"Hey." Kita shot him a friendly smile before taking his hand giving it a light shake. "I'm Kita." After a slight pause Kita continued. "Well my stepdad's a deep sea hunter, and I've looked into him for as long as I can remember. His life seems so exciting. I've always wanted to be just like him, and if I get my hunters license I'll be able to." Kita wasn't exactly lying, just leaving out a few things. Her stepfather had warned her numerous times not to tell any of the other applicants of her true motives. As though many of the applicants had pure intentions, others were not so trustworthy. "So what about you?"

Ami made sure that she got up early, she had a bad habit of being late, but this was one time that being late wouldn't be acceptable. She had packed her hand woven backpack full of herbs and clothing the night before, so all she had to do was eat something and get dressed. Once ready she headed to the docks.

As she approached the ship she looked around, there were so many different types of people. Out of all the people there, there were a few that seemed to stand out to her, all guys except for one small red headed girl. She followed them aboard the ship making her way down to the lower deck, she didn't want to be one of the unlucky people stuck on the main deck left out in the cold to sleep. By the time she reached the area there weren't any hammocks left, but that was okay with her. Sleeping on the ground was something that she had gotten used to.

She found a small place to sit, not far from the boy that appeared to be sea sick, the young girl, and the boy that she had seen playing what she had learned were called video games. She still didn't really understand the point of them, why pretend to go on an adventure when you could actually go on one? The video game boy then seemed to decide to put his game away and talk to the cheerful girl. She turned her attention from them to the boy wearing the blue hoodie. He looked miserable, maybe being below deck wasn't the best thing for him or anyone else that may have to deal with his future vomit. Ami really couldn't handle seeing him looking so sick, "Excuse me, I couldn't help but notice that you seem to have more than a little bit of sea sickness. I might have something that can help you with that if you are interested." She knew that this was a competition and that in a competition helping others wasn't usually the best decision, but if that was to be her down fall than so be it.

"Nice to meet you." Asimov state with a close eyed smile. He then opened his eyes and intently listened to Kita's words. "Deep Sea Hunter? Sounds pretty exciting and like a lot of work. I probably wouldn't be cut out for something like that. Your stepdad must be one hell of a Pro Hunter!" Asimov exclaimed, looking a little sheepish at his own admission.

So he was correct. That monster on the deck was her stepdad. If he was a Deep Sea Hunter, he must fight all kinds of giant beasts and pirates and what not. If he had given her any kind of training, she was probably a lot more dangerous than she appeared. Also, she wasn't lying when she said that, but she wasn't being entirely honest. There was something she was holding back deliberately. From the way she acted, it was probably important to her. Honestly, Asimov was intrigued with this girl. If he wanted to know more about her, he most likely shouldn't press the matter now. Perhaps if they get to know one another better.

Kita then countered his first question. He looked surprised and pointed to himself. "What? Me? He seemed surprise she asked. After she confirmed what she said was correct. He sighed a little bit a looked out over the ocean. "The answer to that question is a little complicated." He paused for a brief moment before continuing. "I guess my reason for taking the Hunter Exam....is to beat it. All my life Ive just sort of gone from one game to the next. I guess I'm just hoping that becoming a Hunter means that I'll get to play the worlds hardest game and that it never ends."

He then looked back at her. "Don't get me wrong, Kita. Just because I'm referring to being a Hunter as a game, doesn't mean I don't take it seriously or that it doesn't have consequences. in fact, only the best games have consequences and there is nothing in this world I take more seriously than games." At the end of his sentence, his almost dead tired eyes seemed to light up with fire and determination unseen in Asimov before.

He then composed himself and gave a quick chuckle before rubbing the back of his head. "Sorry about that. Guess I'm just excited for the exam. Hehehe." Asimov laughed a little awkwardly before getting back to normal.

Wanting to keep the conversation going, he started anew. "So.....what do you think the Exam's going to be like? I hope it's clever."

While he was talking to Kita, Asimov had never stopped observing his surroundings. Cici said it had something to do with his natural En. There was someone trying to remain hidden who seemed to have focused on him for a brief moment before turning away. The young girl, named Ami if he heard right, was aiding the sea sick kid talking with a skinny blonde kid.

The one that currently stood out the most was farther down the deck. Two guys around his age, one seemed angry but controlled, the other was emanating pure bloodlust. Guy was not subtle about it at all. He either was stupid enough to announce his intentions to the entire ship, or he was unaware he was doing it. Either way, Asimov would decide to avoid those two.....perhaps challenge them to a game if the opportunity presented itself.

"Sort of, I'm working on becoming one, but I want to do it in a less traditional way, using herbs an nen." Nen? It was the mysterious energy source he had heard, but it's details were never too clear to him. It was with some amazement that he realised that many might have already come into contact with it, as the thought that people other than hunters have access to its knowledge before had never occurred to him.

"I'm Ami Hisan by the way." "Nagito. It's a pleasure." Just as he finished answering her, he felt a glare burning through him and turned around, meeting its owner eye to eye. He still maintained a carefree manner, returning his glare with a cheeky grin. He had no idea why the man seemed to be after his blood, though he had a inkling that it had something to do with his seasickness. He wasn't really frightened of the older male, though he seemed quite well built compared to his frame. Worst comes to worst, he can make a run for it. Rarely was anyone able to catch up with his speed, so he was relatively safe most of the time.

His eyes drifted half heartedly over the rest of the crowd, fixing themselves on a few more interesting ones. A girl with fiery red hair, tied into twin tails was engaged in conversation with a youth with dark red hair. Nothing too threatening there. What he was most concerned about was perhaps the two men standing in a corner, both of which seemed oddly dangerous. One of them was already showing his bloodlust, and though Nagito was fairly sure that he would be able to get out of it once again, he could tell that the man was dangerous, to say the least. But so was everyone in the competition. People were all selfish, so it wouldn't be odd if they tried to kill each other.

Even if they did, it's not like it would concern him. There were two things he hated to do, fighting and picking a side, so he would probably be staying neutral in any case. Of course, the best circumstances will be that they will finish each other off and he would be able to get away, escaping as usual.

"So, what's your name, hoodie?" He asked casually with a tilt of his head, turning his attention back to the people he was standing with. The man's nickname was established right off the bat, and even if he chose to tell him his full name, it would stick with him for the rest of the time they meet.

Kita thought the boy seemed fairly unsure as to why he was taking the exam, but from what she gleaned he was in it for the challenge, and he obviously took challenges very seriously, even going the extra stretch to remind her of it. Although, anyone could see he was passionate about it by the way he spoke.

"No problem, I think we all are. Well, maybe not him." Kita laughed, gesturing towards the seasick boy, who was getting help from a girl now, the only other girl on the boat actually, and a boy talking to them, but he was still obviously ill.

Kita tilted her head to the side."Hmmm, well I know the actual exam location changes each year, so it's never the same. My stepdad told me it almost always starts with a marathon to the first phase. For the rest of the exam they're supposed to test everything, physical, mental, and anything else they want, it’s really up to the examiners. Lowering her voice so only he could hear, as to keep other people from listening in."Before you even start thinking about the main exam, you have the pre-exam to worry about." After pausing for a moment to look around to make sure nobody could hear her she continued. "My stepdad told me that the hunters association hires people to make sure only the people that are prepared and fit to take the exam get to the site. So it's a good idea to stay on everyone's good side, even if they don’t seem important."

Letting a loud sigh, she returned to her normal speaking volume. ”Well that was a mouthful.”

The way the ingredients turned colors under deft hands was enough to be alarming, but the herbalist then mentioned Nen. It was a term that Sanzi had heard before although his people preferred to refer to it as Qi. That alone meant that she was not from the Tangs although he couldn't be too sure yet. She did not look too dangerous though; her build did not betray any physical training she could have gotten to make her an immediate threat so Sanzi had to gamble with what she offered him.

The concoction acted fast, a lot faster than normal medicine and he felt heat pour out of his own body, as though an invisible force fighting off an intruder, an outside source of Nen. It was a reflex he had yet to control as the whole Nen thing was very new to him and he had inherited way more than he could normally handle, so it wouldn't be too far-fetched for anyone familiar with Nen in the crowd to detect something amiss. Nevertheless, it settled not without forcing to let out a silent burp though, and alleviated his condition until the dizziness he had previously felt was nothing more than a slight feeling of sporadic vertigo. It had worked better than expected, but not well enough to warrant his distrust.

"Hoodie is just fine, but if you must know, San Zi" he responded in lieu of introduction, eyeing the lanky teen with what could be interpreted as a triumph. Just to make sure that he was fine, he got up on his two feet and made a few steps towards his bag when he concluded that he was back to his optimal state. There, he undid the rope tying him to the rails of the boat and took out two bottles of pills and down them in one go to squash what discomfort Ami's medication had not managed to rid him of. He wasn't too worried about interactions between medication as his blood was poisonous enough to give medicine, poison in controlled dosage and form, a run for its money under normal circumstances.

"I've got limited amounts of these," he said, as though that explained everything. They were the meds he had stolen from nearby pharmacists and veterinary clinics. He had thought that since this Ami Hisa was capable of producing more medicine to fight off his sea sickness, he wouldn't need to bother with extra pills and may as well consume a few. Absentmindedly, he began twirling them, while he fished out a bundle from his belongings.

He had not eaten in a while, after all, and it wouldn't do to take on the hunter exam empty-stomached now that he knew it had already begun and he did not risk projectile vomiting at the slightest tilt of his world. When he unwrapped the clothes, they revealed three meat buns, signature dish from the continent of Kakin. He handed one with a half-bow to the woman who had helped him. "Please accept this as a token of my gratitude."

His eyes then darted to Twigs and, without warning, he handed the kid another one. "Eat." He had taken notice of a few dangerous characters on the deck. Although he wasn't the best at reading the mood or people, it wasn't too hard to take not of those whose body language screamed 'I want to Hulk smash something.'

Just like every other trip, as soon as they had made it out to open water the captain, and a select few crew members, had broken out the alcohol in the bridge. All of them had sailed this course many times before, so they were confident in their abilities, especially since this was a relatively easy course. It was open water until the reached the port the next morning, and it was dead ahead.

What they hadn't accounted for was the wildlife. In their drunken stupor, they didn't even notice the large shadow approaching the ship, or how still the waters had become. Suddenly there was a loud bump against the side of the boat, throwing everyone above deck to the port side of the boat. As the monstrosity rose out of the water, the applicants faces all plastered with looks of terror.

Ami watched San Zi take a few steps, she smiled happy to see that her remedy had helped. She watched him pull a pill bottle out of his bag. He mentioned that he only had a limited supply of whatever it was that was in the bottle. In response to his comment she said, "No problem there is plenty more herbal medications that I can create if you need help." Ami was happy to have helped him out, but even happier that she may have just made ally. With her limited physical abilities she'd need all the friends she could get to help her survive.

Unexpectedly he then handed her a meat bun, "Thank you. I know that this will be of some use during the exam." She then put in her backpack to save for later. She had already eaten that morning and felt it'd be better to save it for later.

She took a moment to look around the room again, she noticed some guys that were clearly blood thirsty. She made a mental note to stay as far away from them as possible.

Suddenly she felt something large hit the side of the boat, knocking her off her feet. She then heard an unusual sound coming from above deck, "What is that?"

Kita smiled. This Asimov guy seemed like a potential future friend. Her eyes wandered towards the water, and she was startled to see how dark the water had become. A moment later she realized what was happening and grabbed onto the side of the boat just before the boat was hit.

As the monster rose out of the, Kita's eyes widened. She had seen a lot of things when she went out on the water with her stepdad, but never anything this big, and more often than not they were relatively passive if you left them alone. This one, on the other hand, was obviously hostile.

Turning towards Asimov, she spoke. "I hope you can fight, that thing obviously isn't friendly, and there's likely someone from the association watching us too. " She looked up at the monster, it was long and black, almost like a massive eel, at least four times as large as the boat, it could probably break it in half with ease. It lacked scales, but it's skin was obviously thick enough to withstand a fair bit of damage. It obviously wasn't going to be easy to take down. The only possible weak spot she could think of was between the eyes like a shark, but they were nothing alike, so that was unlikely. "To be honest, I have absolutely no idea what this thing is or how to hurt it. So unless you have a plan, I hope you like improvisation."

(ooc: Sorry I though most of us were below deck because in the first post Kita went below deck to the hammocks. I'm good either way though.)

Ami was grateful that San Zi had pushed her below deck just in time to keep her from falling off the ship. Her lack of coordination would have made it difficult for her to stay on without falling off. San Zi handed her the rope that he had been using earlier, "Thank you. I'll definitely need this. I'm not the most coordinated person in the world." She tied one end of it tightly around her waist and handed he the other end. "When you go back up there can you tie this end down for me?" She quickly started pulling out different herbs from her bag and then rummaging through San Zi's bag to see what he had. She had never worked with actual medications, but she was sure they'd create some kind of nasty chemical reaction. Out of his bag she pulled out two bottles one containing sleeping pills and the other a narcotic painkiller. Those two together would be a deadly combination, but for extra measure she added some hemlock and nightshade. With this combination will either kill if ingested or at the very least paralyze the creature if it touches its skin. She wasn't sure how San Zi was intending on using the poison so making it work for either internal or external was important. She mixed them up into a paste and focused on it changing it to a high concentration that would be enough to kill a 10,000 lb creature. She hoped that it would work, she didn't have much experience with making poisons

*Whistle*"That's a big bowl of Unadon waiting to happen." Asimov said, a smile beginning to grow on his face. He looked over to Kita as she spoke. He nodded a couple of times. So this might be a test from the HA, and if it wasn't, they were at least watching. Bonus Game! Think on your feet!

He smiled widely at Kita's last sentence."Kita, if you ever learn anything about me, it's this. Improvisation is what I do." Asimov then grabbed some of the ropes tide to the side of the ship and began to untie and loosen them. After he untied two spokes of ropes, he tied them together with incredible speed. He then threw one end at Kita. "tie that end to the boat, your dad was a Deep Sea Hunter, you're good at tying knots, right? When I give the signal, give one hard pull really quick, then let go." Asimov was about to turn away, but then turned back to Kita. "One last thing, I can't swim. So if I fall in the water, be a pal and pull me back up?" Asimov then lassoed himself around his waist and was off.

He turned to face the Main Mast, as he spun he noticed the others on the ship waiting or hesitating, looking to work with each other. Teamwork is important in crisis situations....but being decisive more so. He could almost see the bright countdown in front of him.

3.........2..........1.....GO!

With impressive speed, Asimov shot towards the main mast and immediately leaped up it a great distance. He kept leaping until he was at the top of the mast. He looked over towards the giant monster and seemed to analyze it. He senses extended towards and he felt its body as his own, every roar, every contortion. He felt it. He hoped the center of its skull was a soft as it felt. He opened his eyes and looked down at Kita. HE gave her a smile and thumbs up. He then turned and leaped as hard as he could towards the beast, the rope trailing behind him.

Asimov managed to leap over the curve of its neck as the beast was leering down on the ship. The rope made contact with the top of its neck and Asimov used his momentum to begin to swing the rope around its neck. One pass, two passes, three passes. Asimov was high in the air over its skull at the top of the third pass around. It was at this point he called out to Kita. "KITA, NOW!"

Feeling the power of Kita's pull, everything fell into place. Asimov focused all of his awareness into his right fist. With the combination of Kita's pull, the momentum of the ropes and his own strength, Asimov drove his fist down harshly right in-btween the monsters eyes. The beast roared in pain! It was hurt! It was also severely dazed. Asimov slid back on its neck as it began thrash in pain. He grabbed onto the ropes that were wrapped tautly around its neck. He held onto the ropes with one hand and called out loudly. "YEEHAW! Check it out, Kita! One hand!

Nehr held onto the railing as he watched the events unfold, curious as to how others would respond to this situation. "Did he really just say 'yeehaw'?" Nehr raised an eyebrow as he watched others try to defuse the current predicament they all found themselves in. While some seemed to take an attack first, think later approach, others seemed to be making some kind of concoction in order to bring down the beast.Overall, they seemed to have a grasp on what to do, something Nehr was surprised by, if only slightly.

While they chose to attack, Nehr chose to watch them as they did so. Since his reasons for being here were of a more superficial nature, getting an eye on what his competition was like in action was far more important to him than what the monster planned on doing with its massive frame. He was confident him and Del would survive by this point, so now it was time to turn focus toward prey of a different sort.

What seemed like a bump in the sea left Juro floating through air, although it took him a moment to realize his predicament. The high ground had to have been the worst place to be in this situation, to correct this error however it seemed as though his face had decided to set a crash course for the floor of the top deck, which it met with a thud. As passers-by retreated at the cause, Juro was motionless until he rose his head, it had seemed nobody noticed his failure and so he hopped up swiftly and wiped the recent ordeal off the slate of his memory. "So..." he uttered, taking a moment to assess the situation, the ship had seemingly run course into the path of a sea creature, a hostile one at that from the look. Juro was surely no expert in marine life or deep sea hunting, perhaps a crew member or passenger knew what to do, but in the current situation the wait and see option didn't seem all too viable. He groaned as he came to the realization that he would actually have to do something, as he glanced at the creatures neck catching sight of someone who surely must have snapped mentally and mounted the creature.

As he considered the possibilities, Juro considered that a plan in which the boat was still afloat by the end of it was most optimal. Further gleaning his memory from his assessment of the passengers before the creature arrived he considered the possibility of cooperation. The red head could've possibly made a decent tactical assessment, but it seemed as though the thrill of the moment had gone to his head, Juro surmised while shooting a glare towards the red head as he heard the "YEEHAW" from afar. He turned towards the stairs leading below deck, "I guess that leaves one option, and to be honest it's the one I prefer" he assured himself. As he looked down the narrow hall at the swordsman and the would be doctor from earlier. The scent was faint but carried by the sea breeze it was apparent to anyone who was trained in poison for long enough that this one was a manufacturer. The best thing about poison is that it doesn't require strength to use and the smallest doses of the deadliest concoctions could take down even colossal foes.

"Yo" Juro proclaimed as he made his way to the hooded young man, "I could use a hand keeping this boat afloat, I'd rather not drown today... So, you in?". He had decided to forgo introductions, at the current time they seemed rather useless, and time was of the essence.

"I'll secure the rope to the door, so you can find your way back indoors if things go south," he said, heading back up and doing just that. If Ami was as uncoordinated as she had claimed to be, dodging an attack will be out of her league, which meant that it was best for her to make her presence scarce around the beast. To be honest, he wasn't sure how well the ship would fare against the coils and fangs of what appeared to be a giant sea serpent, but it was better than nothing.

It was there that he was accosted by a fair-headed teen with an offer to team up. Unfortunately, Sanzi wasn't really a team person unless he was familiar enough with affected parties' capabilities, so he paid the other man of Kakin little attention. "If you want my cooperation, you better have a good plan. If not, talk to me once you've managed to make a dent in its thick hide," he growled, readying his sword with a small twirl of his wrist while he stalked evenly towards the side of the beast where a real spectacle was awaiting him. Someone was riding the damn creature, and it drew an incredulous chortle out of him. That looked awfully fun, and there were enough ropes dangling about for all of them, so the hooded man climbed onto the nearest mast until he spotted a mop of pinkish orange: the bubbly girl from earlier.

She was also on deck and seemingly helping the serpent rider. Sanzi briefly recalled overhearing something about Deep Sea Hunter or the likes which meant that she would be the one most likely to know how to deal with this beast. "Hey, Pigtails! Any idea why it's attacking? It's not its mating season or anything I hope." Beasts were usually ruled by instincts and primitive urges. Was the beast defending its territory or family? He had a hard time believing experienced sailors would navigate near such dangerous waters, HA protection or not. Either way,if there was no way to dissuade the beast from attacking them, it will have to go down.

Mimicking the red-head's earlier actions, Sanzi tied one of the long ropes around his waist so as to secure retreat route. He was sweating at this point and not just from the midday sun shining down onto them. His body was going into overdrive and Nen was unconsciously gathered into his legs as he propelled himself towards the sea serpent. The explosive force of the leap alone cracked the mast, potentially compromising himself and the safety of everyone on the deck. It was enough to have him draw an almost straight line as he soared towards one of the coils that had surfaced. He landed non so gently, earning himself a few bruises, but was otherwise just fine. There, he began hacking away at the thick hide with his sword.

He had managed to stick the blade a good three inches into it. It wasn't deep enough to reach any blood vessels so he could administer whatever poison Ami had been preparing in the meantime, but it was enough for the creature to feel his presence. It suddenly halted in its thrashing and decided to leap into the air with one mighty snap of tail, so that it may use the weight of its gigantic body to pull all the pesky flies on its back into the sea along with whatever was attached to them by the annoying ropes.

OOC: And here I am, screwing things up for y'all! mwahahaha
@lina: Kita went to the hammocks at first, but went back up on deck.
