QUINQUE

An Ukaku type quinque that resembles an axe. It has a red hue to it seeing as the kagune that it was used in it was a ruby color. It has a long handle that allows for better range when using it, although it is still very much a close-range weapon, and a sharp blade that can pierce through most kagune. Some of her personal touches on it would be the small bunny on the base of the blade, and the red ribbon tied to the handle. Tori prefers to carry her quinque around in a bag rather than a briefcase. The axe is able to fold in half so that it can fit.

APPEARANCE

Tori stands at 5'3 and weighs in at about 97 pounds. Her heart shaped face is framed by pale blonde hair that falls in waves around her waist. Her waterfall of hair could almost be mistaken for a silver color in certain lighting, which helps her eyes stand out even more. Her golden orbs are surrounded by long eyelashes and always seem to be filled with elation. Her round cheeks can always be found to hold a healthy flush as well. Finishing off her face with a small button nose and plush pink lips, it's no wonder why she gets mistaken for someone much younger.

Tori has always dressed a bit eccentrically, Gothic Lolita being her style of choice. Another oddity about her would be the stuffed rabbit,
Chu, that she always carries around. He's been her rabbit since she was a little girl, and her love for him shows through in the way that he looks brand new despite being 18 years old. If Chu gets so much as a scratch or stain on him, Tori with pay to have a professional work on him and have him returned to his former glory. If she is not carrying him around in her arms, then he is probably sitting in her bag that carries her quinque, with his head sticking out so that he can see all of the sights.

Despite all of her innocence and bright, happy smiles. It's safe to say that none of her smiles are ever quite as wide or genuine as the chilling one she makes when she's fighting with her axe. It's almost as if she transforms into a different person entirely. But as soon as the fight is over, she transforms back into her usual innocent self, you could almost pass it off as your eyes playing tricks on you.

PERSONALITY
{Caring, Unstable, Reserved, Protective}

Tori can be quite the caring person. It doesn't take her long to grow attached to somebody, and she's always willing to help people. She treats her friends like family, and she's always there when they need somebody to talk to. Even if you're rude to her, she'll just smile politely and excuse herself. She seems to take on the world with an ever present smile on her face. Do to this nature of hers, many people view her as a very innocent individual. While she's certainly not naïve, it could be said that she is in some ways innocent. The way that she is always willing to give somebody a chance certainly shows that. She also behaves a bit as a motherly figure to people who are younger than her. Since she grew up without a mother she knows what it feels like to not have one, hence why she feels the need to act like one for other people. One of the only times that you will see Tori not smiling is when somebody asks her if she can actually handle herself in the CCG. To this, you will find that she'll lose her usual smile and instead put on a deadly serious face, then, turning to look the person who said it in the eye, she'll calmly tell them that she earned her way onto the force through hard work and dedication. And she can most definitely handle herself out in the field.

Although Tori has been a kind and caring person since the day that she was born, it can be said that as of late, she's been a bit unstable. It began to show a little bit after her father died, then after her brother died it became full blown. She seemed to be unable to cope with the lose of her family, and thus this dark side of her became present. Tori tries her best to hide this side of herself, going as far as to ignore it completely, acting as if everything if perfectly fine with her. If you were to act her if there was something wrong, she would simple look at you with confusion on her face and ask what you meant. Nobody seems to have really caught on yet, but this seems to be something that she can't really control, so it may just be a matter of time until somebody does. She gets unusually angry when somebody mentions her family, and it takes all of her will power to not start yelling at them, although at times a low growl may manage to escape. Tori has also found that when fighting, a strange amount of joy seems to present itself to her. She finds herself going all out when fighting, even during practice. It takes a lot inside of her to will herself to ease up. All of her tension seems to melt away when she's fighting, and it all seems very exciting. She can never stop grinning while she's swinging her axe. Tori has began to try and play it off by pointing out that she always smiles.

When Tori is behaving normally, she presents herself as a very reserved person. She isn't especially energetic or loud, she's more of the type of person who enjoys sitting back and observing other people. When asked, she will definitely give her opinion, but other then that, she'd much rather listen to other people's ideas. Tori isn't exactly shy, which her silent seems to make some people believe, she's just sort of silent. She can in fact socialize fairly well with others, although she by no means has a silver tongue. She is a very good listener though, and can easily listen to people tell stories for hours on end without getting bored. She can also be a very calming person, often attempting to help others calm down when their emotions are running high. For some reason, her calming abilities do not seem to work on herself when she begins to feel unstable, or it is at least extremely difficult to get to work. Otherwise then then, you can usually find her standing close by a friend and silently listening to what they have to say with a gentle smile on her face.

Tori has always been a bit protective of her family and friends, but after her family died and she began to become unstable, her protective instincts drastically increased as well. It's gotten to the point that if somebody even speaks of harming somebody that she loves, it becomes very hard for her to keep calm. If somebody so much as gave anybody that she cares about, this includes Chu, a tiny scratch, she would likely go ballistic. She would show that person no mercy, and all sense of reason would go right out the window. When she is in on of these protective rages, the only thing on her mind is getting revenge for the person that they injured. Even though Tori is usually a very forgiving person, once somebody has harmed one of her friends, she can never forgive them. And while she usually gives people chances to prove that they are good, people like the ghouls in Shinku Fang she simply can't trust. The thought of what they could do to the people that she loves won't allow her to give them a chance. While she holds nothing back when she is just fighting normally because she enjoys it, she holds nothing back when she is fighting to protect somebody because she is intent on making sure that the person threating others can no longer hurt them. Tori knows that this level of protectiveness isn't a good thing, but she can no longer help it. She can only hope that it won't be her undoing.










Image

LIKES

Chu|| He's become her best friend over the years, she never lets him out of her sight.
Strawberries|| They just taste so good! It's the one food that she can't resist.
Giving People Nicknames|| It's a habit that she happened to pick up. She finds it very enjoyable.
Fighting|| Although she would never admit it, she does happen to enjoy it quite a bit.
It helps get any aggression that she may have out.












Image

DISLIKES

People Touching Chu|| Unless Tori gives you permission to touch him, it's probably a good idea to just leave Chu alone.
Being Reminded Of Her Family|| It's still a bit hard for her to come to terms with all of them being gone.
Coffee|| It's way too bitter tasting for her. Not to mention that instead of giving her energy, coffee just seems to make her tired.
People Questioning If She Belongs|| It's not unusual for people to question how she got into the CCG, given her small stature and childish looks. It's become one of her biggest pet peeves.











Image

STRENGTHS

Speed|| Tori's smaller size helps allow her to move quickly, for a human at least.
Non-Threating|| Due to Tori's non-threating appearance, she doesn't raise much alarm. It definitely helps when taking ghouls by surprise.
Stamina|| After having many practices where Tori fights without holding anything back, she has worked up quite the stamina.
Observant|| While others are busy talking, Tori is taking in her surroundings. It's not unusual for her to be the one to notice something, or find a small, hidden clue.














Image

WEAKNESSES

Short-Ranged Weapon|| Seeing as her quinque is an axe, it doesn't allow her to fight against long-range kagune very well. Unless she can find a way to launch a surprise attack, she's usually left at a disadvantage.
Small Stature|| Tori is definitely lacking in burliness. Therefore on-on-one combat isn't the best choice for her. She can be a good asset on a team, but fighting alone could be dangerous for her.
Protective Nature|| Due to Tori's protectiveness, if you end up hurting somebody that she cares about, she won't think before acting.
Conflicting Emotions|| Tori still attempts to hide her unstable emotions, which usually leads to her fighting with herself over what to show and what to keep compressed. This fighting with herself can leave her in a vulnerable state where she isn't really sure what to do.

HISTORY

Tori was given life in exchange for her mother's own. Shortly after giving birth to her daughter, Asuka Hayashi died due to complications from the strain of birthing a child. Tori was immediately thrown into a gloomy atmosphere, yet the mishap with her mother only seemed to help bring her family closer together. Teaching the family the valuable lesson that you had to love people while they were around, since they could disappear at any moment. Thanks to this, she grew up in a very caring and loving family. Although her father and older brother (Who was five years old at the time of his mother's death) were very grief stricken, they put all of the effort that they had into raising Tori right.

By the time that Tori had turned ten, an increase in ghoul activity was becoming noticed. For this reason, Masaru Hayashi decided to move his children from the Shibuya ward in Tokyo to the Nerima ward, where things seemed to be much more peaceful then some surrounding areas. Tori was a bit saddened by this move, she had never been outside of Shibuya before, not to mention that it was the place where she discovered and fell in love with Lolita fashion. It was also the place that she had met her best friend Chu, who she had found at a toy store at age three. Her sadness definitely could not top Daisuke's however, as her older brother began crying the second that he was told they were moving, since he did not want to leave the area that his mother was buried in. However, their father insured them that this move would be good for all of them, and so the two children were solemnly dragged along.

It wasn't long after the family's move to Nerima that Masaru decided to join the CCG and help aid the fight against the ghouls. Daisuke found the job of a ghoul investigator to be rather fascinating, and he would often read up on any information that he could find on them. While Tori did find the concept interesting, she wasn't nearly as enthralled with it as her brother. There were many days where she'd be stuck sitting on her bed, listing to her brother drone on and on about what they did in the CCG for hours. It would only stop when their father returned from work, which would send her brother flying to the front door in order to ask their father if he had any cool stories to tell from that day. Daisuke would often tell Tori about how he was going to be a ghoul investigator just like their father when he grew up, and she could only hope from the bottom of her heart that he would, maybe then he would stop talking about it.

When Daisuke finally reached the legal adult age, twenty, he had decided that he was finally ready to attend the Ghoul Investigator Training Academy. Yet, when he excitedly told his father about his plans, it lead to a full-blown argument. Tori watched cautiously from the doorway as the two screamed at each other. Masaru saying that he didn't want his son to put himself in danger like that, and Daisuke saying that he was an adult now and that he could do what he pleased. The argument ended when their father swore that he would cut Daisuke out of his and Tori's life if he went to the Academy. So, with a heavy heart, Tori watched as her older brother sadly agreed not to go. She watched as some of her brother's usual cheerfulness drained away from him that day, and she watched as the relationship between her brother and father slowly crumbled away, the two only speaking to each other when absolutely necessary.

Two years passed and Tori could only wonder what had happened to her once close-knit family. She and Daisuke watched quietly as chaos began to erupt in the 14th ward. She couldn't help but feel worried for her father, and she knew that even though they weren't on speaking terms, her brother worried for him as well. Whenever she would as her big brother if their father was going to be ok, he would calmly reassure her that the 20th ward was very peaceful, and that he would most definitely be fine. However, things never seem to turn out the way that you want them to. A year later, Masaru was killed while at work by an unidentified ghoul. The two siblings were shocked and relatively horrified. The unthinkable seemed to have happened.

Tori knew that her brother felt an insane amount of guilty for not speaking to their father very much in the years leading up to his death. So she didn't deny him when he said that he wanted to take their father's body back to Shibuya so that he could be buried next to their mother. Tori waited patiently for Daisuke's return, while he was only supposed to be gone for a week at the most, he ended up disappearing for a month. When he finally did return home, it was easy to tell that he hadn't been taking care of himself while he was away. He had lost a bunch of weight, and his skin was a sickish gray color accompanied by large bags underneath his eyes. Tori was sent into a panic at this new version of her brother, all signs of the cheerful and excitable brother that she grown up with were now gone. She tried her hardest to take care of Daisuke, not enrolling in college so that she could spend all her time nursing her beloved brother back to health. However, he was severely depressed by this point and would barely eat, so a year after their father died, Daisuke passed as well.

Tori was now all alone, with only Chu to keep her company. It was around this time that she began to become a bit unstable. She spent a couple of months in a depressed heap herself. The only thing that got her out of it was a sudden realization that she had. Daisuke had never got to live out his dream as a ghoul investigator, but she could do it for him. So, at the age of nineteen she enrolled at the Academy. Now, two years later, she's been working for the CCG for a couple of months. Tori plans on being a great CCG employee and someday being promoted to a senior investigator. She's not going to let anything stop her, because she needs to get to the top, so that Daisuke can see what it's like.

So begins...

For years the fourteenth ward has been at peace. Ghouls that roamed the city were now deemed as non-hostile beings, and everyone was at ease. They coexisted for the time being. But then, attacks on both species suddenly skyrocketed. Many were being killed, and everyone was now in a state of panic. Soon, the group of ghouls that led the attacks revealed themselves. Calling themselves the Shinku Fang. The CCG investigated and could find nothing on who the six ghouls were. Their peace had been taken once again.

Currently, the group of agents and ghouls selected to stop them was standing in front of a building over in the fourteenth ward; where all the havoc was happening. Their mission was to simply capture, and turn in the group of terrorist ghouls before they took over the ward, and eventually the CCG in the twentieth. Yes, the leader Mr. Smiley had openly revealed their plans to the authorities; just for a kick of fun. After all, they'd need help anyway, right? A head start was what Shinku gave them, they were lucky the leader was feeling generous at the time.

But of course the group of recruited specimens' mission was proving to be difficult. No attacks had occurred at all since about a month ago long before they arrived, which was only today. Citizens were on edge, anticipating the next news report of a dead human or ghoul, but nothing. Perhaps Shinku was playing a silly little game. It is their nature of course. Aside from all that, it'd be hard to choose roommates for these 'young' fellows. With so many clashing personalities, there were sure to be some interesting moments.

Meanwhile, the Sparrow, said leader's right hand man(woman) was watching this group of people from inside the building's lobby, through the glass front doors. The rest of the group were disguised as various staff, waiting for the right moment to strike. There were many humans in this quaint hotel. Which one would they choose to kill? The first encounter would finally take place.

Let the games begin.

The two siblings, having donned costumes to give the appearance of them being employees in the fancy hotel. The older, Kazumi, has their hair tied up in a fluffy ponytail to keep their long, waist-length fuchsia hair out of the way. Their younger sibling Kiyomi wears her hair in pigtails as per usual. Kiyomi sits on the front counter with her legs swaying back and forth, looking tragically unprofessional. Her older sibling has to gently swat her off of it (to which she pouts).

❝Kazu-nee, Kazu-nee! When are we gonna get to do stuff? I'm so boooored! I wanna do fun stuff! I wanna do stuff that's really fun!❞ The eccentric teenager bounces up and down, looking up at her sibling hopefully. Kazumi does not hold all the answers, but Kiyomi rather acts like they do.

Kazumi sighs and leans against the counter, opening their mouth wide for a yawn. It is rather dull here, having to wait around for the perfect time to strike, and disguising themselves as employees does not do much for the entertainment factor. The two eccentric and bubbly siblings must tone down their usual personalities (though Kiyomi doesn't seem to be doing so too well). The older sibling reaches out and ruffles her hair, to which Kiyomi giggles.

❝Patience, patience, Kiyocchi. Your adooooring Oneesan loves to see you so eager, but we should wait for a sign from Smiley-san.❞ Kazumi boops her nose, which she covers with her hands. ❝Then, we'll find some pretty young boys for me to eat riiiight up, and we'll find cute girls for you to play with~ ❤❞

Dialogue #5e62b8Thoughts #b55eb8




"Just when i thought I'd finally catch a break, huh?" Dual mutters to herself as she pays for a can of soda from a vending machine right across from the hotel where the members of the CCG that were sortied to the fourteenth were supposed to meet up. Opening the can and taking a sip in between puffs of smoke from her cigarette, Dual observed the building from where she currently was. From the outside of the building, everything looked perfectly fine. proceeding her observation further, she glanced around her surroundings through her peripherals. Nothing seems out of the ordinary around either. She dropped her cigarette and promptly stamped it out while taking a long chug of the soda she held in her hand.

She had arrived some time ago and was observing the meet up location, waiting for the remainder of the group. As the senior investigator in charge of the case, Dual had the duty to arrive her on time and before everyone else. Although, admittedly, she had arrived a bit later than planned, just in time to see one person snag some keys and head into the depths of the building. Based on that alone, she had to assume that the possibility of other people having arrived before her was likely.

To be honest, I really don't wanna head in just yet. But I suppose I might as well see if anyone else checked in before I arrived. She thought to herself as she finished off her drink. Crushing the can in her hands, she turned towards a nearby recycling bin and tossed it. Pulling out another cigarette and lighting it, she quickly jogged across the street towards the hotel, the metallic case fastened to her back making the run more awkward than it should have been. She entered the building and took a glance around the room. It was pretty plain and simple, but it was fashionable in its own right. She turned back towards the main counter, but thought twice before addressing the two managing it. They seemed rather... eccentric and unpleasant to deal with.

With a puff of smoke, she decided she'd just wait in the lobby for now. She'd rather not deal with the pink-themed duo, it felt like work just looking at them. Instead, she chose to walk over and sit down on one of the chairs in the lobby. She unfastened the case on her back and put it down between her legs on the floor. "This would be such a good time for a nap..." Dual said aloud, as she stretched her arms upwards. However, she knew that a nap was something she couldn't take. She had to watch the entrance of the building, just in case another member had entered. For the time being, she'd just sit back and relax with her smokes.

ImageTori swung her bag back and forth cheerfully as she made her way closer to the hotel where everyone was supposed to meet. Looking down at Chu, who happened to be peeking out from said bag, she smiled gently as she noticed the way that the wind was making his ears flow behind him.

Stopping once she was in front of the hotel, Tori looked up at the tall building and watched as the sun peaked out gently from behind it, making the glass in the windows begin to glitter. Smiling to herself, she looked back down and watched as the people around her walked along the sidewalk, rushing to get to the places that they need to be. Technically, Tori should have been heading into the hotel, getting to the place that she needed to be. But, she decided to stand outside for a bit longer and take a breather.

She had never been assigned to such a big case before, so she couldn't help the feeling of nervousness that was seeping inside her stomach. Of course, it was also very exciting, and this would be a great way to help further her career. If she did well on this mission then it would definitely help with getting her promoted to a Rank 1. But there was also the fact that she was the lowest ranked and youngest agent here.

Sure, she was pretty good for someone of her rank, she always pushed herself very hard during practices and had worked up some skills in return. But it really was only natural to worry how she do compared to the senior investigators that were put on this mission as well. Tori just hoped that she could actually offer help on this mission and prove her worth.

Apparently the ghouls that would be helping out were still pretty young, most of them not even being over twenty yet. Most ghouls would be wary of working with the CCG, but seeing as they're young it must be even more frightening. Therefore, the higher-ups thought that it might be a good idea to send somebody who was a bit closer to the ghouls' ages in order to sort of help them adjust better. Tori was a pretty warm person, not to mention that she wasn't very intimidating. So she was seen as a good match to try and help the ghouls ease into working with the agents a bit better, which was likely one of the main reasons that she was added on this mission. She wished that it could have been due to her skills alone, but that would come in due time. For now, she needed to head inside of the hotel before she spent all day lost in her thoughts.

Standing up a bit straighter and smoothing down her dress, she slowly made her way towards the door leading to the hotel's lobby. "Well, here we go!" She said, addressing the stuffed animal that seemed to be watching the door, waiting for it to open. Pulling the door's handle, the room inside was slowly reveled to Tori and her rabbit.

Smiling as she walked inside, Tori looked around the room. The décor was nice, and the familiar hum of people helped to calm her nerves a bit. Nodding to herself silently, Tori decided that she liked this place. It was around this time that her eyes landed on a woman sitting in one of the chairs placed in the lobby. The case sitting next to her leading Tori to assume that she must be an agent.

There was only one other female agent on this case, which lead Tori to assume that the woman must be Senior Investigator Sumire. Walking closer, she looked over the woman once more. She did seem to be the correct age, and she did appear to be waiting for people to enter the hotel. A bright smile now taking over her face, Tori stepped in front of the woman and bowed in greetings.

"Excuse me, but you must be Sumire Dual, correct?" Straightening up from her bow, Tori extended her hand to the woman. "I'm Hayashi Tori, Junior Investigator Rank 2. It's a pleasure to meet you."

Looking around, Tori noticed that nobody else seemed to be with Dual. 'Maybe they're all in their rooms already? Or maybe I'm just early?' Tori hadn't thought that she was very early, but it was a possibility. Speaking of rooms, Tori looked at Dual once more noticed that she didn't seem to have her room key just yet.

"Have you not checked in yet?" Looking over at the lobby's check-in counter, she noticed two workers with starling pink hair and obvious bright personalities. Letting out a quiet noise of understanding, Tori looked back at the older woman. "I have an idea, why don't I get your keys for you? We need roommates anyways, and I can fit the bill nicely enough, I think." Smiling, Tori tilted her head slightly before adding, "This way you can continue to wait for the others, and I can get the room prepared. But, only if you want to of course." A slight chuckle left Tori's throat at the last statement. She understandably hadn't had a roommate in mind, and she was sure that Dual would make a fine one. Hopefully Dual didn't mind her staying with her.

Junko stared up at the tall building from their position across the street. They weren't quite sure if they were ready to go inside. This case would definitely prove to be interesting, but they hadn't volunteered for this in the first place. They never would have been here had it not been for the scouters. Not that Junko disliked the cause behind this mission, it still boggled their mind that a group of ghouls would do something like this. It's not even just like they were going against the humans, they were eating their own kind as well. Maybe that's why Junko had agreed to help the CCG with this mission, they still hadn't really been sure about the reason.

Crossing their arms, Junko waited for some cars to pass before walking across the street towards the hotel. Walking through the front doors of the building, Junko looked around at all the people milling around the lobby, their ever apparent blank expression spread across their face.

Passing by two workers at the front desk, Junko couldn't help but notice that they were ghouls as well. The familiar scent filling their senses, they spared a side-long glance at the eccentric pair before continuing towards the chairs in the room. They also happened to notice a pair of humans talking by one of the chairs next to them. Junko gathered from their conversation that they were indeed part of the CCG, but they didn't really feel like introducing themselves right now.

They would go ahead and greet everyone later, but they would probably wait until all of the other introductions were over. They didn't want to get stuck in a conversation with multiple people. As for now, Junko decided that they would just read. Pulling a book out from one of their bags, Junko began to attempt to tune everyone out as they concentrated on reading.

As for the whole roommate situation, Junko would probably just wait for everyone to pair up and then bunk up with the last person. They didn't really care who they roomed with, as long as they cleaned up after themselves. They also sort of hoped that they didn't talk too much. But, in the end it didn't really matter, Junko should be able to put up with them anyways. Let's just hope that they put up with them all right.

Being dressed up in a revolting skirt wasn't the best feeling in the world. The wig Kana had to wear was itching her scalp, and the blue contacts she had on irritated her. She was entirely against this, but it was necessary. Why she was the only one with these particular properties? Kana's famous. She couldn't risk a fan seeing her out in public and dragging attention to her. It would ruin some things. She was disguised as a simple customer, who of course had to be a female. She was beginning to think that Kuro was getting a kick out of this. After all, he was watching on the security cameras. The poor guards didn't know what had hit them.

Kana had only been sitting in the lobby, but perked her head up when an odd looking fellow came in. First agent of the day.. Ugh those two idiots are gonna blow their cover. She glanced over at the energetic pair of siblings. She glared hard at them, as if saying, "Act normal or I swear to god I will slit your throats." It was annoying enough sitting in a skirt, but the two siblings just took the cake. But, Kana had to focus on her mission. She watched as the young man checked in. Following after was young woman- another agent. She took a glance at the pink-haired idiots and sat down in a chair across the lobby. Then came another woman, who was also an agent. How many agents did they hire for this? Then finally, came a ghoul. Who was a girl(?)- well Kana couldn't tell. She could care less anyway. Had they been working on the case too? She heard the CCG scouted some ghouls out, but she couldn't be sure. She decided to give a little report. Kana pulled out a phone and put it to her ear, talking lowly so nobody could tell what she was saying.

"It's night, Kuro. When's this gonna start? Also, I think I found a ghoul that's working with them. I'm sure more will be arriving soon."

It truly was interesting working along with the CCG. Hunting ghouls, he thought it was rather interesting. A sweet smile rested on his feminine features as he stood on the other side of the street from the building where they were to act. His large eyes drifted over to a vending machine and just as Dual left it he made his way over to it. He keyed in the code for the canned coffee he wanted and with a satisfying string of beeps and clicks, finishing with a thud. He had his prize. The air was thick with the remnants of Dual's smoke, Esmé was never really a fan of smoke but Dual was nice enough from what he knew of her.

He held his coffee with both hands as he crossed the street not even bothering to look either way as he walked with confidence. If anything dared to keep driving over a "child" he could maneuver out of the way in time regardless. As he entered the lobby he took a slurping sip from his coffee and looked around the room. He spotted Dual and meandered over to her and sat in a soft lounge chair a few feet behind her. He closed his eyes a moment to take another sip and let out a content sigh. As it stood now, it was a pretty calm and fun mission. Who knew it could be this easy? The CCG had an easy life. Well, he knew that was incorrect but no matter. It was then that he noticed the pink duo. They were bright and loud, an eyesore for sure, on top of that they were ghouls. Yet, it wasn't Esmé's job to judge the hirelings of this establishment, perhaps they were reformed they certainly didn't appear dangerous. So his feet, which couldn't reach the ground from his seat, swung harmlessly as he drank his coffee.

Dual mentioned being tired and Esmé could agree, he too was rather tired, but it was no time to be lazy. In fact there never a time to be lazy. Even though it may have appeared as though he was slacking, it was quite the opposite. His eyes were actively scanning over every entry and exit in this lobby. Listening to what was said, looking for oddities. On guard and ready to spring into action. Once he completed his drink he hopped up and went to the desk.
"Pardon me," He said in his soft voice "I can't seem to find a trash can, could you throw this out for me?" He said addressing one of the pinks. This was to see if they reacted in an odd manner to a normal request, he doubted it but you could never be too careful. Plus his diminutive stature helped him with these types of things without raising too much concern. Often people thought him a child. Which was a good thing, especially for finding out things about other people. They weren't as guarded around children.

Dialogue #5e62b8Thoughts #b55eb8




Dual's lazy expression softened ever so slightly at the sight of another member of the CCG walking into the building. The cigarette which she had been holding in between her lips nearly fell to the ground. Though she would not admit it herself, she almost outright shrieked at the sight of the junior investigator headed towards her. What the heck? What dimwit made this adorable kid be a fighter? She's a doll! She shouldn't be on the damn battlefield! At least, that what Dual was thinking. On the exterior, however, she managed to hold herself back by biting hard on the end of her cigarette, although careful enough to not chew right through the paper. However, despite how cute she thought the other to be, she couldn't help but scowl at the introductions made. Her eyes quickly scanned the room to see if any eyes were fixated on their position, but, in her immediate line of sight, there appeared to be none. Granted, scanning your surroundings without being too conspicuous is not too simple of a task, especially if you happen to be able to see out of only one.

"Y'know, we're in enemy territory. You can't just flat out say who we are. You don't know who might be listening," Dual said with an exasperated sigh as she softly rubbed her forehead. "You ain't wrong, but we don't know whose listening in on us. Though chances are they already are aware of our presence. Doesn't take much of a genius to know we would be taking action sooner or later." With a troubled smile she sat up straight and tilted her head forward slightly, as a sort of mock bow, and returned the handshake with Tori. Out of the corner of her eye, Dual noticed another person enter the building. She caught a glimpse of white hair and was about to comment, but was stopped short by Tori's offer.

Dual took a second to let the proposal sink in. Well, as far as the Investigators go, she ain't wrong. It's only us two girls. I personally don't mind bunking with either a guy or girl, but maybe she does. In any case, Dual couldn't resist the offer from such an adorable person. "Well, since you've taken the time to make such a generous offer with me, I don't see why not. Thanks." Dual replied, letting a more peaceful smile spread across her face. "Ah, by the way, Dual's fine, kiddo. I'm not into the whole respect for the seniors thing. Not like I'm much of a senior anyways."

Leaning back into her chair, Dual adjusted her position ever so slightly as to allow the duo at the desk to enter her field of view. Partway through her chat with Tori, Dual noticed the person who had entered previously walk over to them. While she did scan the files given to her prior to sortie, she had only glanced at the files of the ghouls. More specifically, she can match the name to the face and that's about all. She took off one of the ear-like accessories off of her head, and pretended to fiddle around with it as she observed. The one who had previously entered the building before, Esmé or so Dual remembered, looked absolutely adorable as well. Dual was sure that Esmé was fully capable of carrying herself (Dual only skimmed the files, mind you. She honestly believes thus far that Esmé is of the female gender) and would likely not require her assistance if something happened, but ghoul or not, Dual was in charge of the group. She had to be prepared to step in at a moments notice, should push come to shove. After all, she couldn't help but shake the feeling that they were being monitored... from more places than one.

Shiori hummed happily as she skipped towards the hotel where she would meet up with her fellow co-workers. Before she entered, however, she did a little inspection around the building. After all, it wouldn't do to get surrounded all of a sudden. She wasn't exactly bothered to actually make sure properly -- the others were sure to have already checked, right? So after a quick lap around for assurance, Shiori walked straight in the door.

The first thing she noticed was the distinct lack of boys in the lobby, unless the weird pink thing was a guy. All of the staff and all of her co-workers seemed to be female. She wasn't so surprised about her co-workers all being girls -- the CCG was surprisingly female dominated lately -- but all of the hotel staff seemed to be girls, and also ghouls for that matter. 'Oh well. I bet there'll be dudes deeper inside. I'm totally just being paranoid!' She thought, before walking up to the pair of doves conversing at the desk. "Hi! You're my superior officers or something, right? Dual Sumire and Hayashi Tori? Nice to meet you! I'm Kimura Shiori, but you can call me Shiorin!" Shiori held out both of her hands to shake, "You have such pretty names, I'm jealous~" She joked in an attempt to lighten the mood. Everything seemed to frighteningly professional at the moment, and since she was going to be working with them for a while, why not start off with a joke?

Shiori looked around at the other people in the room -- two employees with shocking pink hair, a random visitor who hadn't moved from her spot ('Maybe she's waiting for someone?'), and two little girls, one reading and the other looking to throw away a cup of coffee ('They're both ghouls as well... So many in one room! I suppose they're working with me too?'). 'Well, this day is getting off to a boring start.' She thought in annoyance.

Takeshi panted as he cycled down to the hotel at top speed. He was absolutely late -- he was certain that everyone else must have gotten there before him! The stacks of paper in the basket weighed down the bicycle, slowing it somewhat, and for a moment he wondered whose idea it had been to leave all of the paperwork to him to fill out. But regardless of that, he was late! What kind of example would he be setting as a leader with this?! 'Everyone must be thinking that I'm so irresponsible! Oh, I bet they all think that I'm a terrible worker and that I'm not fit for this mission...' His mind started to jump to conclusions in a panic. This was when he realised, while he was worrying, he had began to head straight for a tree by the hotel. Takeshi pulled on the brakes and the cycle stopped just in time to not hit the tree... But all of his papers flew out onto the ground. 'Ugh, idiot!' He berated himself as he got out to gather them, 'Maybe if you hadn't been so busy freaking out, this wouldn't have happened!'. With a sigh, Takeshi locked his bike to the tree and ran into the hotel.

As soon as he was inside, he realised that everyone else really had arrived. "Um... Sorry to keep you waiting." He said awkwardly to nobody in particular. He looked around for a familiar face, and recognised Dual. Takeshi walked up to her, seeing that she seemed to be talking to some other people working with them. "Ah, sorry to interrupt, but... I have all of the paperwork, so, um, if anything gets damaged in battle or something, we should be fine, so..." He trailed off, "I-I'll just leave this on the desk for now until we, er, get rooms.". Takeshi glanced around, wondering what he should do, now that the matters with the paperwork had been settled. He walked deeper into the building, looking for somewhere to fill his empty, breakfast-less stomach. Needless to say, the morning had left him more than a little strazzled.

And so, the two wait, blissfully ignorant of all of the negative attention they seem to be gaining. Though a glare from Kana humbles the siblings, their gazes lowering to the desk. Kiyomi stops her bouncing, and Kazumi tugs at a few strands of their hair. ❝Scary, scaaaary!❞ say the two of them together, though very much under their breath and to each other.

It isn't long before the two at the front desk receive a visitor in the form of a child—no, not a child, but a very small ghoul. The scent is delectable, and for a moment, the two siblings have to fight over their urges to lose themselves internally. Some higher power muuuuust be testing us for sending such an adooooorably delicious ghoul to us. Before Kiyomi gets the chance to speak up, Kazumi raises their hand, beckoning the 'child' forward.

❝Absolutely, little dove! Are your parents around?❞ They step out from behind the counter and bend toward Esme, as Kazumi seems to tower over Esme in an almost comical display. ❝That is a lovely dress you have on! Where did you get such a dress?❞ They reach out for the empty drink to be discarded, a wide, close-lipped grin on their features. Kiyomi claps her hands together, circling once around the 'child.' She looks absolutely ecstatic, as Esme appears to her as an adorable young girl, and girls of all ages happen to be Kiyomi's favorite thing.

❝Uwaah, did you really lose your parents?❞ Kiyomi's question comes out of left field, as Esme left no indication of this, but it's expected of the slightly dim-witted younger sibling. ❝You can stay with us until you see them again! Kazu-nee's right—you have a really cute dress. I used to wear dresses juuuust like that when I was your age. How old are you?❞

As the two siblings bombard the supposed child with questions, plans unfold along around them. No matter what becomes of this ghoul-child, the two will have their fun, just as everyone else will have theirs, as well. Whether they've been enlightened of Esme's true nature or not would be ambiguous, but one thing the siblings do know for sure—this one smells an awful lot like those CCG bastards.
