(City Girl Needed!) Four Boys Are Fighting over Two Things: Their Master's Daughter, and to be the sole successor of this generation, the rule of Isshi Souden!

706 readers have visited Isshi Souden since JayZeroSnake created it.

Introduction

RP Theme: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T5rJaudBToc

Long ago, a man's wife had died, giving him his only child: a beautiful baby girl. He strived to raise that girl, and give her everything he had to offer…

Almost Everything.

This man was the practitioner of 'Ansatsuken (Assassination Fist).' A Deadly Fighting Style that followed the Isshi Souden Rule of Succession, that only one man per generation was allowed to practice it. He did not want to place such a heavy burden on his daughter, so he searched for others to carry on the legacy of his family's art.

He would soon meet Four boys, each with their own personality and specialties, each orphaned and left to be cared for by him. Deciding he couldn't just select one person and think it'd work out perfectly, he soon trained these boys from a young age in his Ansatsuken. They grew into young men, getting friendly with his daughter, who they saw almost as a sister, as well as others who came into their lives, such as the Playful, Resident Kunoichi in training, A City Girl raised in riches, and a local sukeban (Lady Delinquent). They all have coveted their master's daughter, considered the most beautiful girl in the world, and to gain the honor of marrying her by becoming the powerful role of successor to the world's greatest, and most dangerous martial art in existence.

They will face many challenges, their lives and relationships with others, their brutal training, and conflicts from Local Delinquents, And the practitioners of the Polar Opposite Martial Art, Satsujinken (Murder Fist).

Will Love Bloom? Will the new successor be chosen?…

-

The Boys

1) The Street Punk (True Grave)

This one just loves attention, especially from his master. He gets into all kind of trouble, loves motorcycles, and enjoys the use of weapons, or just about anything to get to his goal. Deep down, he feels mistreated because he is the middle child of the family. Well, Once he becomes successor, I'm sure he'll show them all he's the best.

Specialty: His Ansatsuken follows a self made principle called Yousatsu (All Methods to Kill), and resembles Street Fighting, Pro Wrestling, and the use of various weapons. He has a cruel 'take no prisoners' approach to fighting, and will use anything to get his way.

2) The Healer (Harlequin Smile)

This one was formerly a tough guy, and a show off. Eventually the Master and his Daughter together, knocked some sense into him, and used a secret technique to make him use more humane, and merciful techniques. Since then, he has learned the error of his ways, and has a deep love for all living things. You can send him into great anger if you do something as simple as harm a defenseless bird.

Specialty: His Ansatsuken follows the Ujousatsu (Merciful Kill) Principle can be used to heal people, as well as harm/kill without pain, rather the opposite, to let his opponents feel heavenly. His movements are Graceful, and he is a master of his Ki Energy

3) The Jack Of All Trades (JayZeroSnake)

This one is a dedicated martial artist, and has great respect for others, unless they have evil souls about them. He learns from his fellow brothers, seeking to try and mold together their skills in an even distribution of unity.

Specialty: His Ansatsuken Follows the Hissatsu (Certain Kill) Principle, and is delicately balanced out, with something from each of the other brothers.

4) The Conquerer (SneakyRio)

This one loves power, and control. But not without reason: He seeks to control his own world because he wants to stand up for the the little guy, even if it means he has to use an imperial rule of terror against his enemies to do so, thus his interest in becoming successor is greatly increased. He enjoys using the most brutal techniques of Ansatsuken, and owns a large tiger that he rides on like a horse.

Specialty: His Ansatsuken follows the Metsu (Destruction) Principle. uses the most forceful, plain out strongest, most brutal techniques. His movements somehow blend might with the beauty of Kung Fu. He has the second best Ki control of all the brothers.

Every Ansatsuken Style seeks the 'Messatsu (Annihilation)' principle As an ultimate goal, meaning to be capable of destroying all who oppose them and what they stand for. They must also master Satsuki (Killing Intent), which will allow them to harness the killing techniques of Ansatsuken for their use.

The Girls

1) The Master's Daughter

A Delicate Soul. She can see the good in everyone, and always prays for the safety of others. She is literally considered the kindest person in town, but is very shy at the same time...

2) The Kunoichi (AthenaUndying)

A Playful Ninja Girl who likes to mess with the brothers, a couple of them more than the others. She hopes to marry one of them, and try to be more like a normal girl, due to her upbringing as one of the last purebloods of her clan…

3) The City Girl

Raised all her life in the lap of luxury. She lives near the boys home in the area near the jungle, as well as the city. She is never without the latest fashions, gadgets, jewelry, etc. She is a bit of a brat though, to hide the fact she's actually very caring. She has demanded one of the boys marry her, because she feels a Smart, skilled at fighting, gentleman, would be the perfect husband to keep up her image…

4) The Sukeban (Angelika Petrova)

The Toughest Female delinquent in Nanto City. She is constantly at odds with the boys because she too wants to be a strong person, but cannot seem to win against Ansatsuken. She acts tough because she doesn't want people to take advantage of her, especially men.

Robyn raised her eyebrows. "That's cool. But you missed one. there's two in the neck that can knock you unconscious. It's called throttling." she joked, then hummed under her breath, thinking.
"Mine is sort of a lot of things squished together. Most of the stuff you saw was mainly karate, with a bit of judo thrown in. I just sort of developed the midset where the moves just melded into one style. If you kno0w what I mean." she smiled selfconsciously. She failed at explaining her style.

Master Ryuken took a sip of his tea.
"Tsubasa, I am well aware of how the training goes for all of my students. I know how hard all of them have worked, which is why I think now is not a good time for a vacation."
He set down his tea cup.
"While I am not entirely in approval of Jack's training methods, they do seem to be helping. As for Joey, he recently reacquired the fire of training, and is bettering himself as we speak."

He set down the cup.
"It is difficult for women to understand why men will break themselves upon mountains in search of strength. Most women are motivated by what they are. But most men are motivated by what they can become. It drives them to incredible measures to achieve that strength, courage, and manhood. Joey is especially vulnerable right now. If I interrupted his training, he might lose his motivation completely."

He smiled.
"Aside from that, I'm not sure that all of my pupils have earned a vacation. Saulong is naturally strong, and I don't think he's been working as hard as he can. Brendan, in particular, has been screwing around a bit too much, as of late. They all need more discipline before they are worthy of a vacation."
He then looked at Tsubasa.
"You yourself have your own trials ahead of you."

He looked out the window.
"Someday, you will be the wife of one of those boys. So, your challenge is to find something that you can fall in love with within each of them. That way, no matter who it is, you can be happy in your role as the wife."
He then looked at her.
"Now, if you'll excuse me, I must return to my meditation."

"Yes Father...of course you are right..please forgive my intrusion." Her gaze dropped to the floor, her cup of tea cradled between her palms. Her cheeks reddened a bit as he spoke of her duty..something she certainly didn't need reminding of. Eyes would once again rise to look at her father, that familiar smile on her lips. Well..at least she didn't show any of the thoughts that were flying through her head, one thing she was good at was putting on a smile and moving forward. Rising gracefully to her feet, a little bow given to her father. "Thank you for your time father..please let me know if I can get anything for you." Since the pot of tea was still mostly full, she left it for him to enjoy if he wished, gathering her own cup and heading out of the door, quietly closing it behind her.
Calm steps gradually turned into an outright run, heading quickly into her room to gather her harp. She needed to clear her head a bit..and music always helped that. Out to the garden with her, sitting down near the herbs she had been working on earlier. A graceful hand strummed across the strings, letting the instrument sing for itself. Although she quickly went to work on a song she had been putting together for a while. She knew the melody by heart, not even watching her fingers as they quickly picked up the song. Her voice..it was crystal clear..with a sweetness and softness all its own.

The burning desire to live and roam free
It shines in the dark
And it grows within me
You're holding my hand but you don't understand
So where I am going, you won't be in the end

I'm dreaming in colors
Of getting the chance
I'm dreaming of China; the perfect romance
In search of the door to open your mind
In search of the cure of mankind

Help us we're drowning
So closed up inside

Why does it rain, rain, rain down on Utopia?
Why does it have to kill the ideal of who we are?
Why does it rain, rain, rain down on Utopia?
And when the lights die down, telling us who we are?


She paused for a brief moment, thinking on the words she'd tucked away on that little sheet of paper. Of course! A smile would cross over her lips even as Yue joined her, curling up in her mistresses lap...purring contentedly.

I'm searching for answers
not given for free
They're hidden inside, is there life within me?
You're holding my hand but you don't understand
So I'm taking the road all alone in the end

I'm dreaming in colors, no boundaries are there
I'm dreaming the dream, we all seem to share
In search of the door, to open your mind
In search of the cure of mankind

Help us we're drowning
So closed up inside
Why does it rain, rain, rain down on Utopia
Why does it have to kill the ideal of who we are?
Why does it rain, rain, rain, down on Utopia?
And when the lights die down, telling us who we are

Why does it rain, rain, rain down on Utopia
Why does it have to kill the ideal of who we are?
Why does it rain, rain, rain down on Utopia
And when the lights die down, telling us who we are
Why does it rain?

"Yeah." Brendon just sat in mute acceptance for a second, then shook his head and shrugged. "No. Not really. I have no idea what you mean. I mean, I know karate, and I know judo. Sparred against a few practicioners before, but what you did, didnt seem that close to either."

He sat silent for a minute, sipping at the slowly cooling tea, marvelling at the way its delicate flavour shifted with temperature, then looked up at her, face bright. "So maybe you could show me. You know, properly, when I'm not lurking off to the side like some wierdo. I'd love to see it. How's that sound?"

"Sure." Robyn smiled at him, then looked at the tattered bit of paper that served as a calendar on the wall. Some days were circled in red, the others in blue. Two days were circled in both. "I'm free tomorrow, and next week" she looked at him. It seemed like they had been talking for hours, but the tea was still warm. Odd. "Do you know what the time is?" she asked.
