The city of Morento!
A proud city with a rich history. The streets are filled with thousands of citizens heading to their work place with a smile as often as possible.
But its never been possible, at least not for a while.
Like most cities, Morento too has its dark side.
But Morento's is worse.
Upon the roof of one of the many buildings stands a man, a strong man, with the will to defend his city, to fight for it and against the wrong doings of those that would harm it and its people.
Beside him are his allies: Savage, the beast man with the fangs and fire of a dragon and the strength of several tigers, Chill, the lady of ice, the woman who can turn the hottest deserts to lands of snow and lastly, Old Boy, the old man who can take the remaining years from his victims and become young once more.
But he himself, the leader of this noble group, The Tower stands out the most, but together, they are The Holy Shield.
A determination of steel crosses his face as he looks down upon the people the city, hoping they would be able to go upon their day without worry. They were blessed to be able to not know about the horrors of Blood Seed.
The group dedicated to causing terror and misery for the cities inhabitants.
The villains treated the people as though they were dominoes, never giving them a chance to live and die in peace.
The Tower does his best to give the people that time they want to be happy with their family and friends.
A sudden explosion echoes from a few buildings away!
The Tower turns his head to face the direction, his hands form a fist, already he knows the identity of the group behind the explosion.
Blood Seed once again.
Within moments, the four heroes are at the scene.
Civilians, dead and alive litter the floor, those that can try to crawl away, the unlucky few are shot down before they escape.
Smoke from the explosion covers the scene, blocking the view of the heroes.
"Show yourself, villain!" The Tower demands.
"Of course, I wouldn't want to put a stop to the part before its already begun." A cruel voice spoke from behind the smoke.
Slowly, a tall, large figure emerged from the grey curtain, a deep blue skinned man with four arms, enough fists to hit each hero.
Dressed in the signature red and black uniform, the already confirmed fears The Tower had were true. It was Blood Seed.
"Just call me, Ogre. I'll be sure to leave you feeling sick in the morning, if I let you live that is!" Ogre laughed.
With a leap, Savage attack immediatly with two claw attacks, cutting into Ogres thick skin and drawing blood, Ogre struck back hitting Savage in the chest, knocking him away.
A few seconds later, Ogre felt a deathly chill slowly crawl up one of his arms, it was slowly freezing solid.
"Argh! You wretch!" He yelled as he charged towards Chill and punched her straight in the face, sending her hurtling into a wall.
She slowly picked herself up.
Ogre slowly began a second charge but was stopped when suddenly his frozen arm was crushed.
"Pain like that makes you feel old, no?" Old Boy joked.
"Gyah... " Ogre coughed before his was suddenly choked by Old Boy.
Slowly a few wrinkles appeared on Ogres face while the greying hair suddenly darkned into jet black hair.
"What... Have you done...!?" Ogre said as he swung his arms at Old Boy's face, knocking him away.
Ogre began retreating from the fight, holding his broken arm.
"Tower! Don't let him escape!" Chill yelled.
"I didnt plan on it!" Tower ran towards the wounded villain, leapt into the air and hammer punched Ogre as he landed.
Ogre fell towards the floor with a thud.
"You'll pay for your crimes in prison. Those poor souls you murdered..." Tower grimaced.
The four heroes regrouped, as the firefighters and ambulances emerged to help the wounded.
"What does this mean... another attack or a simple corner shop. It makes no sense, these attacks cant be random."
The four heroes slowly walked away.
To rest up and make notes of todays events.
They'd head out several times again later throughout the day.
The rate at which they have to stop attacks was becoming to much.
They need help.
Nine Circles College - Cafeteria
Taking a break in the cafeteria, Luke Matthews enjoyed a cold bottle of soda as he wrote down some notes from the history lesson he had taken earlier in the day.
Most of it sounded like garbled mythology, but it was interesting, kind of.
He put the pen down and leaned back on his chair stretching his arms and yawning.
He shook his hands to try to ease the pain from all the note taking, he'd taken a lot, it seemed like it was all he was doing these days.
The cafeteria was rather empty today, just a few scattered students and professors hanging around having a bite to eat.
It caused that kind of silence that felt illegal to break, like the slightest cough or hiccup would cause someone to give you a horrid death stare or a "tsk tsk, how rude".
It was not a comfortable place to be.((Ok, sorry for the delay and wall of text. I need to cut down on those longer starting posts, Dark Sands was a bit longer I think.
So, just introduce your character. don't worry about introducing their power straight away, take a few posts to do it.
Also, feel free to interact with others characters, but maybe not delve into powers and abilities with other characters until they head to the Holy Shield HQ.
Infact, for some character exploration, lets leave discovering powers until the next day(RP Time).
And feel free to create a character to recruit your own rather than use one of the current Holy Shield members.
Anyway, have fun and get justicing! ))
