If the Sun Ever Rises

If the Sun Ever Rises

0 INK

In an alternate version of Japan, ninjas and samurai use their elemental powers to battle against each other.

1,109 readers have visited If the Sun Ever Rises since Grimpunker96 created it.

Introduction

In an alternate universe version of Japan, two factions are at war. The ninjas, who wish to take over or even destroy Japan, and the samurai, people who wish to stop the ninjas from succeeding.

There 7 clans, representing each element. Fire, Water, Wind, Earth, Thunder, Light, and Darkness. Members of these clans control the respective element. The member also has a secondary ability, based on their clan. Fire has the ability to give themselves a short boost of energy, speed, strength, etc., Water can heal, Earth can find almost anything, Wind can fly, Thunder has a danger sense, and some clairvoyance in general. Light has aura sense, sensing the target's presence, morality, emotions, and if the user is strong enough, their skill level and if they are telling the truth or not. Darkness members can teleport.

Ninjas rely more on magic, stealth, poisons, and traditional Japanese weapons. They have existed since Japan first started becoming a civilization. Samurai on the other hand, are a fairly new faction, rely on machines, however, they can still use magic if they want. They are more modern than the ninjas are.
Image

Each member has a level, the higher the level, the more skilled they are with their powers (both elemental and secondary)

There are:

Students- Low skill
Warriors- Fair amount of skill
Masters- High amount of skill

Lastly, while ninjas are supposed to be on the same side, they may want to kill each other, unlike the samurai, who try and cooperate with each other.

Forms:

Name (since this is anime inspired and in Japan, I would prefer something Japanese, or at least Japanese sounding):
Age:
Clan (choose wisely!):
Appearance (Just pictures are fine, even "Like this but imagine if...". Descriptions are good, too):
Weapon(s, you are allowed just hand to hand, if you wish):
Level:
Natural skills (poison making, running, climbing, etc.)
Personality(Optional, you could convey it as the RP progresses, instead):
Voice(yet again, optional. This is anime inspired, so just to add something fun to the experience. This means to pick a voice actor best suited to the character):
Fears:
Short bio:

Roles: These are optional, just to help the story. Give them names, too.

It was night time. Kiras was standing on a rooftop, looking down at the streets, unseen. He chuckled. "Such insignificant little creatures down there. They're a waste of my breathing space. I wish I could just slice some down. More oxygen for me, and less pests!" he cackled. He hummed. "Hmm... I have an idea." he said slyly. He extended his arm and his hand glowed white, and an illusion of a dragon appeared in the streets. It roared, and people were running away screaming. "Well, not very ninja of me, but it was still fun to watch!" Kiras cackled as he flipped away into the darkness.

Daisuke sighed, listening to the younger ninja play their silly "mock combat" games. It was really nothing more than a glorified version of hide and seek, using paper shiuriken and little sticks as kunai. He remembered how he used to love such games, before..... He rubbed his nose, feeling the scar that was a stark, heavy rememberance. Don't bother thinking about it, Dai.... The past isn't changed by thought, only the future is... He thought glumly to himself, repeating his teacher's words. He let one arm go limp, using all of his focus on the other as he drew a small stream of water from the tree he rested in. I thank you, my wooden friend.....for not treating me as the others.......

Kiras eventually got outside of the city and saw the place where Daisuke was in the distance. "Well now. That was rather fun indeed." he laughed to himself as he walked into the forest. He looked past some trees, seeing Daisuke. He chuckled. "Look. It's the blind kid. Laying against a tree. As usual." he released a small cackle. He tried to stay hidden, of course. Watching Dai and the children. His six, orange, glowing eyes burned through the darkness.

Dai twitched slightly at a slight tug to his left. This part of the woods was "his"; he knew every inch, each tree and blade of grass for about five miles in any direction. So when something changed where it shouldn't have, he knew about it shortly after it happened. However, that's all he knew; he couldn't tell what the disturbance was, nor could he tell exactly how far. Only that there was something watching him. He hopped down from his tree with a lazy yawn, and caught a flying stick without once turning his head. "Get outa here, if you want to keep those deft fingers....." He growled at the kid who'd launched it. The trio of young students squeaked, unsure of what to do; he had never posed himself as a threat to any Ninja, so hearing him on edge was rather....unnerving. After a moment, he listened carefully as they left.

"Who are you?" He asked the presence.

Kiras chuckled. "You never heard of me? Well then, kid, allow me to introduce myself. Or better yet, come in here, and we can have a private conversation. Though, I suppose it won't matter. You can't see me either way, can you?" He cackled.

Dai growled at the presence; he hated being reminded he no longer had sight. Come in where? That part made no sense to him. "Come out, unless you're a coward like the ones who stole my sight. Come out where I can sense you properly."

Kiras sighed. "Into the forest, stupid. That way, no one can see us fight, and then after you're dead, I could just steal your body and keep it as a trophy!" He cackled.

Daisuke tensed, the hairs on the back of his neck raising like he had been sturck by lightening. When I'm dead? Damn fool is way too cocky.... He thought to himself, as he took a few steps farther into trees. "So, you gonna tell me your name or what?"

"Kiras Nishoku. I honestly don't see why it matters. Are you going to fight me or not? Or are you waiting for your sight to come back?" He laughed. "You know what? Screw this." Suddenly, his chains wrapped around Dai and started dragging him into the dark forest. "C'mon, kid! Be a man and stop stalling. I'm only getting more bloodthirsty by the minute!" He cackled. By the time he finished his sentence, Dai was completely in the forest.

Dai smiled; it had been a long time since he had last fought someone so full of himself. "Daisuke Hayashi. Oh and by the way, you just told me where you are." He dug his heels into the ground, water wrapping around his ankles and keeping him in place while he pulled the chains closer, dragging Kiras with them.

"Well now, that's cheating. But I can cheat too, boy." He told him. "Now, Eclipse... Viper..." He whispered as black energy with a rainbow outline went to his hand, and got bigger by the second.

Dai laughed out loud, releasing the chains and disapearing briefly. "Poor fool. The moment you came into my sensing range, this fight started. I'm afraid you're a little behind. Wolf, ice, rain......" He flicked his wrist in a soft gesture, the last few words hardly audiable as the clouds darkened, and silver blue rain fell from the sky, quickly freezing in a lupine sheild around him. Why do they always pick me? Whenever a ninja wants an ally, I'm the last to be even thought of, but when they want to hit something, they always pick the blind guy...... this is really annoying......

"You're the fool. You don't know of the Eclipse techniques at all, do you? Especially mine." He chuckled. He fired his attack, which was a giant black and rainbow energy wave that bounced over the shield and exploded on Dai. "Eclipse Edge." He growled, as a giant black energy blade with a white glow appeared in the place of his hand. He put the blade against Dai's neck, darkly chuckling.

Dammit! Dai sighed, regaining some composure, and smirked, letting out a chuckle of his own. "Look at the kettle telling the pot it is black. You know nothing of Icewolf either." As he spoke, the shards of the exploded Wolf reformed into a pack of ten deep blue canines. One launched at Kiras, instead disappearing as another whipped a diamond hard tail across the ninja's ankles, giving Dai just enough space to slip free. "Tell me, what Clan are you? I can only just sense you, as I would only barely sense Darkness. And yet, there is enough of you shining as though you were Light....."

"I was born in Darkness, raised in Light." He told him. His Eclipse Edge sliced the canine in half. He used his aura sense technique. "Hm... Only a small amount of chaos in you... It's not significant, but it's still there. Interesting." He whispered. Claws came out of his fingertips and he jabbed his right claw into Dai's chest, and then lifted him up.

Dai coughed a little, blank blue eyes opening ever so slightly, left hand instinctively grabbing Kiras' wrist. He mumbled something, hardly audiable even to his own ears and ice began to spiral up the Light ninja's arm. "What are humans made of? What is it that makes us move fluidly once we have been trained?" His coughing turned into a weak chuckle as the ice continued to build and spread, now tinged red with Dai's own blood.

"Depends on what level you are talking about. Spiritual or physical" he asked. "I admire your persistence. It's such a shame you can't see who wishes to kill you." He chuckled. He blasted Dai with a beam of light, coming from the hand he jabbed him with. "Sorry if that burned. No, wait. Actually, no I'm not." He laughed.

Light flashed behind Dai's closed eyes as he flew backward into a tree, spitting a good mouthful of blood that landed like gel at his feet. "You still haven't noticed? I am talking about that which conncets spirit to body. Blood. What is it made of that allows it to move through the body as magic does?" The tinged ice had at this point wrapped around Kiras' lower half, gluing him to the ground. "Water," He smirked, answering his own question. "It is water that makes up humans, and for that matter plants." He groaned softly as the burns across his chest slowly began to heal. "Actually, Kettle, I'm quite surprised you've made it this far. But you'll have to do better than that if you want to beat someone on his home turf." With that, he turned around, and began to walk away.

"Yes, but it is Chaos that allows you to control that power. Without that, things stay there, motionless." He said. "Eclipse Edge... Release." He muttered, as his blade turned into a wild beam of energy, burning and knocking down trees, and was about to hit Dai.

Dai stepped out of the way, as much a stumble from bloodloss as a conscious move. "Rain...." He groaned, and the sky turned dark for a moment. Deep kunai of falling ice sliced at Kiras' arms.

Kiras sighed and chuckled. "You with the ice attacks. You sort of remind me of someone." he said. "This is getting boring, but, before I go, you get a souvenir! Think of it as a reminder of the day we met!" He laughed, throwing a ball at him, which opened up, releasing a dark blue gas, which would give Dai insomnia.

Dai coughed, staggering backward until he sat on a thick root. "Damn idiot, Dai. That's what happens when you forget your gear! Next time, keep the damn thing with you, even if you're just going to laze about in the shade." He rubbed his nose as he stood again. "She's gonna kill me for this..... Again......"
