Re: [WAR X] WAR X RP - The Circle of Life and Death [SU]
Wow. I started this SU today and finished it... today. Never have I been so much of a not-procrasinator when it came to WAR. :o And normally, I suck at histories. This one turned out to be a novel. (x Well, it looked like a novel in Word. :P
Kozanar is unnaturally tall, and the last time he took the time to measure his height (which was about eight years ago), he was about six-foot-four. He has mid-length, light-brown hair that is often described as the color of caramel. Kozanar has blue eyes, like his sister. He wears some loose, chain-link armor on his legs and chest, and has metal, tie-on plates at the top of each of his arms, which are connected by some loose string to another piece that is lower down, past the elbow, so his flexibility is not limited. Under the chain link and the armor is a long-sleeved, royal blue shirt. He normally wears a pair of black leather gloves. Strapped onto his back by a leather strap that crosses over his chest is a dark sheath containing a blade that is just as dark. Inside is a heavy obsidian sword with a blade fine enough to slice the bark off of a tree but durable enough to hack through almost anything. He carries a steel dagger that is hooked onto his belt. Kozanar is well-built in both mind and body, from his time traveling with his sister.
Kozanar’s armor also hides his scars from when he was mauled by his Hydreigon, before he befriended him.
Kozanar is a very friendly and outgoing person, though his temper gets the best of him sometime. He is mostly only temperamental when it comes to the safety of his twin, Tsuki. If anyone even touches her, he won’t hesitate to get them away from her. The idea is that he’s extremely overprotective of the girl. He is not afraid to speak up for himself or anybody else, and despises magic, and is firm in his beliefs that it should be only used by Pokemon. He loves his Hydreigon like his own child, as well. In battle, if there’s even a sliver of a chance that he might win, he’ll take it, but if not, he’ll give up the battle due to the fact that he hates seeing his Pokemon get hurt for a lost cause. Kozanar is also fiercely loyal to The Cullen and wouldn’t betray them for anything.
Keep in mind, though, that this man’s friendliness does not extend to mages, and he definitely get extremely unfriendly if he gets to know someone and then find out that they are a mage. It makes him furious, actually, since this had happened many times in the past and he has grown sick of it. He is not afraid to bring harm to mages, and is mostly absolutely brutal towards them, because he knows that they probably wouldn’t do anything for him. He hides his hate towards Cullen mages, but still displays a small amount of disdain and disgust for them, though at heart, he knows that if they were ever in trouble, he would stand by their side no matter what.
On the subject of Pokemon, he adores them. Having been born in Parasanti, he is down-to-earth, which is another reason why he despises magic. Abusing Pokemon or purposely exposing them to Ichor (it doesn’t matter for which reason) is something that he loathes with a passion. Freedom is a virtue to this man, and tries to give everyone freedom, since it was the way he was raised. He may despise the mages, but he equally hates taking captives, and will never take a mage captive. Besides, Kozanar doesn’t think they’re worth the time, anyway.
Kozanar, along with Tsuki, was born in Parasanti. From the moment they were born, they raised them to respect your peers, and to protect each other at all costs. They always treated Kozanar like the older brother (when, in fact, he was born exactly fifty seven seconds after Tsuki), though Tsuki could always handle herself if needed. Their parents had both been around sixty years old when Tsuki and Kozanar was born, and the birth almost killed their mother, and afterwards she grew very, very ill. When they were three years old, she died, and when they were both eight years old, their father followed, leaving Kozanar his sword and dagger and leaving Tsuki her bow and arrow pod (though it was bare of arrows).
The last thing that Tsuki and Kozanar wanted to do was to be taken to an orphanage, but they had no option. Kozanar, at the last minute, had desperately tried to do just that, but Tsuki knew they would not survive, and if they did, it would be harsh. His sister was the bringer of reality in the decision, and for the next eight years of their life, that was where they lived. They were supposed to stay until they were eighteen, but it was then, at sixteen, that Tsuki and Kozanar agreed on trying to make it on their own, mostly because of the fact they were tired of the place, since it was like a cage to them. They went into the forest, and never returned to the town. They almost starved to death, because neither of them was fast enough to catch anything to eat. They lived off of berries, but soon they could find no more bushes without straying from their general direction, or splitting apart to search. They stuck with going forward, and eventually they both just passed out.
The twins were found by a family of Leavanny, who revived them and brought them food. They guided them out of the forest, and Tsuki and Kozanar never saw them again. They found the road where it forks, to the east of Parasanti, and followed it in a southern direction, then taking the even more southernmost path, which curved up towards the Iron Mountains, which they eventually reached after months of travel. By then, they had become nomads, and their facial features were worn and hardened and their feet were calloused and hard. They had learned how to fend for themselves and how to live off of the land.
Upon reaching the Iron Mountains, they were left with two choices: go over or around it. They knew the mountain was dangerous both ways, but the mountain range was so long that it would take forever to get around it, and so they decided to go through it, finding a remote path that seemed to lead through the range. Halfway through the mountains, they saw it was nothing but a dead-end into a massive, one hundred twenty foot rock face, and echoing down the cliff were the roars of dragon Pokemon, and the sounds of fighting. They quickly turned back and began moving away from the rock face, but no sooner than they were twenty feet away, rocks began tumbling down the incredulously sharp slope, and they were forced to run back to the wall, tucking themselves into a crevice so they wouldn’t be crushed by the rocks. In the midst of the rocks, falling down with the boulders was a three-headed dragon Pokemon. As the dust cleared, they went to tentatively investigate, and found a bleeding, half-dead, three-headed dragon Pokemon, which they quickly figured out to be a Hydreigon. They quickly backed away, but upon seeing it was unconscious, they had the urge to care for it. This was a fool’s mistake, and they made it.
They managed to drag the heavy Pokemon to the base of the rock face, since it had fallen several yards away. It didn’t wake up for three days, and in that time they used accumulated cloth scraps to bandage its wounds. Upon waking up, it went directly at Tsuki, feeling the need to take out its anger from its loss. Kozanar pushed her back and faced the Hydreigon, which resulted in a horrid mauling on his part, and he almost died from it, and would have if Tsuki had not leaped on its back and clung to the Hydreigon’s neck. The Pokemon couldn’t get her off no matter what he did. He tried flying about and doing aerial loops and everything else, but he couldn’t get her off. He wore himself out until he could hardly move. Afterwards, he did something strange – he took a liking to Kozanar. Not the woman who had bravely clung to his neck, but the man he had mauled. Why the Hydreigon did this was something that the twins could not even begin to fathom, but it was soon explained when the dragon Pokemon ripped Kozanar’s bag from his bleeding form and ate the berries inside (luckily, Tsuki had some in her bag, but it was covered by other things to hide the scent).
Kozanar healed, but was left with the horrid scars. He despised that Hydreigon with every fiber of his body, and they left it, taking a different route out of the mountain. To their dismay, though, the Hydreigon followed them throughout. Even after they exited the mountain, it trailed after them, never out of view, but never too close, and it was always looking for handouts. Its pitiful whimpers always echoed to them no matter how far away it was, and the only way to get the Hydreigon to shut up was to give it food. And thus, it became sort of their pet.
One day, they were ambushed by a group of bandits and their Pokemon, but before they could even put a hand on either one of the twins, the Hydreigon dropped suddenly from the sky, carrying one away a bit and then dropping him from about thirty feet in the air. As he raced towards the bandits once more, they all fled, screaming, and the pseudo-legendary landed beside them, watching them expectantly. It was then that Kozanar began to like the dragon, and they have been close ever since.
The trio found the road once more, and began traveling along it once more. The Hydreigon, which Kozanar named Ryugaun, never left their side, and no soul dared mess with them as long as that dragon hovered beside them. Upon reaching yet another fork in the road, they knew better than to take the one leading to Mongtru Barro, and headed to Magnasanti, the machine city. Upon arriving, they immediately hated it, since it was the exact opposite of their hometown. They stayed for a while, though, trying to at least take a break from traveling.
One day, while they were walking through the streets, a man ran by them, knocking into them. Ryugaun pinned him, roaring, but Kozanar made him back off. The man kept glancing in the direction they came.
“Please, please take the egg! Don’t let them have the egg!”
The man held out an egg to them, and they took it. The man kept running, and soon a group of people came running after him. They saw Kozanar with the egg and lunged at him, but were quickly forced back by a very angry (and not to mention a very defensive) Hydreigon. The group never bugged them again. The egg hatched soon after, revealing that inside was a Ferroseed. Why the egg had meant so much to the man the twins could never fathom, but they came to the conclusion that it must have been stolen, and the man could have been in enough panic to place the blame on them. The first thing it saw upon hatching was Tsuki, and the ball of steel and thorns never left her side. The woman named the Pokemon Ikuja.
The Ferroseed came with them as they left the city. Tsuki carried it wherever they went. The four of them took the way they came, heading for Saffron – the city in which Tsuki had always dreamed of going to, for some reason. They finally made it after hours of a combination of flying, walking, and resting in between the two. Ikuja evolved right before they arrived, and he could no longer be carried around, so he learned how to walk on his arms, and became quite skilled at this form of travel. They still managed to carry him around for long distances, though.
Tsuki found that her dream city wasn’t as amazing as she had originally hoped, and just as they were about to depart, they met some travelers from an alliance known as The Cullen. After some discussion, Kozanar and Tsuki decided to join this group, and have been loyal warriors for them ever since.
Ryugaun / Male / Hydreigon
Tsuki is tall, like her brother, and has the same light brown hair, but hers is long enough to stretch down to the middle of her back, though she usually keeps it tied up in a neat bun. She’s about six feet tall and is slightly heavy-boned. Tsuki also wears chain link armor, similar to her brothers, with arm plates and a long-sleeved shirt. She has a gorgeous, intricately-carved bow made from yew, and she obtained this from her father, who passed away when she was eight years old. She has a matching arrow pod, which is strapped to her back across her chest, and it has a protruding slot that holds her bow for her. Slung on her shoulder she carries a black mail-carrier bag in which she carries various items such as berries and potions. She bears a short, pink scar on her collarbone, and sports a much longer one on the calf of her right leg. Her nails are kept short, for she doesn’t need them getting in the way. Tsuki has blue eyes, like her brother, but her brother’s eyes are a darker hue than hers.
Tsuki is a strangely shy woman. She doesn’t like strangers much, and would rather keep to her own thoughts. She loves her brother, Kozanar, though, and he is the only one she talks to often. When she meets new people, she never introduces herself – Kozanar does it for her. She relies on him for her social needs. She has trust issues, which is why she doesn’t like being around or talking to people she doesn’t know. When around strangers, Tsuki prefers to hide completely or partially behind her brother, and it is very, very rare when someone manages to get a word out of her within the first day or two of knowing her. She shares a special bond with her Ferrothorn, Ikuja, and it is a bond that she cherishes. She has a stronger connection with her twin, and like her brother, loves Pokemon dearly, and shares the same feelings about the mistreatment of them with her sibling. It is not just Pokemon mistreatment she dislikes, though, but it is also human mistreatment. She will not deny anyone or anything of a place to sleep or something to eat, if she can help it.
Around people she knows, though, Tsuki is a completely different person. Tsuki never tells a lie when she is around her friends (though she is fond of not telling the whole truth), and is actually quite bold around them. She’ll laugh and joke and talk to almost no end, but at the end of the day she will sit and listen to your every complaint, problem, or tale that you may have, without interrupting. She will stand by your side no matter what, and will fight for you even in the most hopeless of situations. Tsuki is imaginative, and has some crazy ideas at times, but when it comes down to a serious situation, her sense of reality kicks in. She is a strong believer of gut feelings, and has quite a good sense of situational awareness, to be truthful. She is strategic in battle and ideas, though she has strength to back herself up if all else fails. She has a soft spot for Pokemon and flowers.
