Karyudo

A hundreds years have passed since The Great War was won, Ankoku has been sealed into the tree for what everyone thought was forever but that forever is coming close to an end. The seals that hold the demon woman are wearing off.

691 readers have visited Karyudo since Doom created it.

Introduction

Image

There was a period of time when darkness washed over the lands of Japan. Ankoku, a female demon was responsible for such a terrible thing.
With power that no other demon had even shown, she over took the lands and turned it into a place of hatred and hell. It was a breeding ground
for demon kind and almost destroyed the human race. While under her rule, any and all hunters were destroyed, the Higoshi family - a very prominent
demon hunter family was the first to go. From there each one fell, with them destroyed her reign continued for years. Slowly around the demon and
her followers the world begun to die. This continued for fifty years, unknown to Ankoku a child had survived the slaughter of hunters. This child was
raised in the secret of a small farming village. The ones who looked over it knew the potential this boy had, when he was old enough they started
to teach him how to fight like his adopted parents did before him the best they could. As he grew older, his power grew with him. Even with all
training that they tried to provide him, he still wasn't powerful enough. Takeo proved himself to be a great leader though, using influence amongst
the farmers he proved to them that they could stand up to Ankoku by destroying one of her many children. This did not go unnoticed. An all out
war waged for several years. Neither the man nor demon were strong enough to destroy one another. Around them people fell but they continued to
fight one another. In a last ditch effort, Takeo used a forbidden magic he had found in forbidden texts. This magic allowed him to lock the horrid demon
away in a tree but he gave his life to do such a thing. For the first time since anyone could remember the sun broke out into the sky, the demons
that lived scattered letting the empire of darkness fall. Humans took their world back and vowed to never lose it to another horror again.

A hundred years have passed since The Great War was won. Humans have flourished in the mean time, building everything that they
had lost. While somethings couldn't be replaced, they were able to mend most of the wounds that they endured over the years. Demon
Hunter clans were reborn under any name that was willing to carry the burden. Villages were rebuilt from the ashes of their former glory,
soon it was easy to forget the pain that all of humanity had once felt under the rule of Ankoku.

Sakae is the name of the village that has flourished around the demon tree, protected by a temple and seals, the tree is a constant
reminder for those around it what it means to protect their own. This village is where the four most prominent demon hunter clans reside.
Each family has an extensive history dating back to Takeo. One of them even being rumoured to be his direct descendant. But there is something
that none of them know, the magic which Takeo used to seal away Ankoku has slowly begun to fade. Bit by bit the once powerful demon has
begun to call her children back to her, begging to be released from her prison. Battle have begun to be waged as demons flock to the once
peaceful village. No one understands why they are being attacked, the families have taken up arms to protect what is there. Not all demons want
to see the woman freed though, some just want her power.

xxSakae
xxxx- - - - - - - - - - - 一 狩人
A small beautiful village, most of the families that live here have lived in this village since
The Great Battle. They have sworn to protect the village and the tree that holds Ankoku.

There are small farms scattered about the village but the main source of income are those
who come to pay patronage to the great Takeo by praying at the shrine.

Aside from producing some of the best demon hunters, they are also known for having some
of the most powerful priests and priestesses.


Image
xxDemon Woman Tree
xxxx- - - - - - - - - - - 一 狩人
Heavily warded against the possibility of Ankoku breaking free, several names have been
given to the tree but only one has stuck over the years, Demon Woman Tree. No one
is allowed near the horrid piece of nature unless they are strong enough to withstand the
apparent whispers weaker beings and demons caught sneaking to have heard.

Those who have seen the tree say that you can see the woman as if the tree grew around
her, trapping it in with the bark.


Image
xxTakeo Forest
xxxx- - - - - - - - - - - 一 狩人
Rightfully named after the hero that saved the world, the Takeo Forest is where the only
remain of the hero was buried - his blade H'idieko.

They believe that the forest grew as a thank you from the spirits of those lost in the war
and many years of tyranny under Ankoku.


Image
xxThe Temple
xxxx- - - - - - - - - - - 一 狩人
The temple is the figure head of the village so to speak, it is what people from all around
come to see and pay patronage to Takeo.

It is also where most of the lands soon to be priests and priestess come to fulfill their
spiritual training.

          Summer air, it always smelt like heaven, at least that is what Kageri thought. Honestly there weren't many things for the girl to dream about, she was a demon. With that didn't come many options in life, you were always hunted, always in danger. Running a hand through the water of the small pond she had found herself next to for the last few ours, sighing a little bit as she slowly pulled her hand away to turn over and let her back get some sun, smiling at the feeling. There were more thoughts running through her mind than there normally were, lately the voice of the infamous demon woman were growing louder. The woman was nothing but annoying and pathetic, begging to be let out the tree that had been her prison for the last hundred years. Kageri wanted nothing to do with her grandmother, while the demon hated the stigma that came with her breed but she didn't believe in the destruction of another, it wasn't fair - after all most demons kept true to their murderous expectations. The demon begged for Kageri to give into those, she made promises about revenge for her brother - promises of power. Was this all it needed for some people? Promises of power and it's okay to destroy the world? Laughing she propped herself up on her elbows, looking back into the water. Anyone who ate that bullshit was disgusting.

          Shifting once more, she pushed herself back onto her feet, after all she couldn't spend all day laying next to the water, daydreaming no matter how much she really wanted to. Slowly she made her way through the forest, listening as she disturbed some birds causing them to take off to the sky. Laughing some as she watched them flap their wings and disappear into the everlasting blue, she shook her head a bit, they were lucky to be able to get away so easily. As she walked her skin started to dark, bit by bit her body begun to change and then suddenly there was no longer a girl but a fox, maybe twice the size of a normal fox, more the size of a dog walking where she once did. Two tails twitched as she looked around her surroundings, seeing them from a whole new perspective. Of course the sudden boost in her senses helped her gain new insight as well. There was one thing she loved, she loved being in this form. Having the ability to be in a human form and an animal form was just something amazing, there were things you didn't see in one form that you did in the other. Switching between them was something she couldn't describe, having that brief moment when you are truly two things at once. Smiling she bared her teeth a bit, letting out an odd sounding yipp that was her laughing.

          No sound was made as the black fox sprinted across the vast amount of trees, she was sure there was something to do either watching that hunter train or finding her friend, Yasou was around. Both of those things seemed like a good day for her but first she had to stop home, it had been a few weeks since she saw her family and she was sure they would think that she had been hunted down just as her brother had so many years ago. For a brief second the thought of her old friend worked its way into her mind, she wondered how Risuka was. She wondered how different things would be if her brother was still alive, if she hadn't attack the hunter upon seeing her. Those thoughts are quickly erased as she though more of her brother, her big brother who was her world. How they were going to change things together. Anger fueled her paws to move faster, she wasn't going to let her parents think that of her, it wouldn't be something they could handle.

          The moment she arrived home, it was easy to tell that the mood in her house had changed. There felt as if a weight had been lifted off everyone's shoulders. What she had thought of was true, while it was normal for Kageri to run off for a day or three she had never spent so long away from home. She felt horrible that she had put her family through such a horror, why hadn't she thought of what it was going to do to them?

          After spending an hour or so with her family, she deemed it long enough. It wasn't that she hated being around them, she just found it hard sometimes. They wanted her to give into her grandmother's request of freedom, they wanted the world to be forever covered in darkness once more. They found the world to be unfair just as she did but their hatred seemed to run deeper than hers or maybe it just ran differently. What ever it was, she wasn't going to listen to them any more than she was going to listen to that wretched Ankoku. Taking off into the forest once more, the black furred kitsune tried to see who she might find first.

Re: Karyudo

Hey there. May I reserve a male demon hunter?

Re: Karyudo

Since it looks like some slots opened, I'm working on a character.
The basic idea is submitted, I'll figure out the rest tomorrow.

It's... a bit odd. I felt like doing a lesser-seen kind of Japanese demon.

Re: Karyudo

I finished my character! Let me know if there's anything you want me to change.

Re: Karyudo

Doom, don't kill me, but I am having a complete brain fart when its coming to this character and rather then playing something half-assed I think I may give up the male demon, so someone else can play him. Hope you understand, I rather you have a good roleplay.

Re: Karyudo

I posted but I don't want anyone to rush !

I completely understand ! I hope everything is better and that the pain becomes more manageable. Back pains are just, ugh probably one of the worse. No matter what you do you're in pain, sitting up lying down, I can't stand when my back acts up.

I can't wait to see your character !

Re: Karyudo

I'm so sorry I haven't finished up my character yet, I finish that sometime today. The past couple of day I've been dealing with an excruciating back injury, so being on pain meds has basically left me sleeping my days away in a stupor. Things are starting to get better now so I'm a little more coherent, once again Im sorry if I have delayed anything.
