General Information:

Name:
Mai Akiko

Username:
Aki

Age:
Nineteen years old, born October 15th, 2008.

Gender:
Female

Job:
She is in her sophomore year of university, and has a part-time job as a waitress to help cover personal and living expenses.

Biography:
Mai was born to a middle class family in a quiet town along the coast near Osaka. She never really had a hard life, she was the second child of the family of three with a brother four years older than her and a sister two years younger.

She never was much of a gamer before Shards of Memory was announced, and she only started following the development of the game after talking with a close friend who was extremely excited about what the game was claiming to offer. By a complete fluke, she became one of the thousand alpha testers. She had been taking a break from studying when the Alpha test was announced, she quickly filled out the application, and was the six-hundreth and eighty-fourth player to be accepted into the program.

Using the money from her part time job, she purchased a Neuvo-Link, and logged into the SoM Closed Alpha as soon as it went live. She was hooked as soon as she started playing, and spent most of her free time playing the game. Much like it had been a fluke that she got into the Alpha Test, it was a pure fluke that kept her from joining the Beta Test. Much like the Alpha she had happened to be online when the Beta was announced. But, as she was filling out the application, a thunderstorm caused a power outage, and by the time the power was restored, the Beta had already been filled.

She had been mildly annoyed that the full game would require her to also purchase a new version of the Neuvo-Link, but she had still happily bought the game along with the upgraded gaming system. The day of the game’s release, her classes were canceled due to a professor’s family emergency. At the time she had counted herself lucky, being able to spend the whole day with the retail release of the game, but that was short lived.

Physical Information:

Height:
She stands at five foot three inches tall, if she straightens her back and stretches hard.

Weight:
Mai weighs one-hundred and eighteen pounds.

Eye Color:
Her eyes are a reddish-brown, similar in color to rusted iron with flakes of golden-brown throughout the iris.

Hair Color and Style:
Her hair is a light chestnut brown, and comes down to about neck level with bangs which reach to her eye brows. Typically she keeps her hair clipped back behind her right ear with a simple hair clip in the real world, but currently she braids her hair and has the two braids meet in the back of her head in a loose knot. The rest of her hair is pulled into a loose ponytail. Currently she has no plans to dye her hair, but is willing to do it if she comes across a color she likes.

Physical Appearance:
She is slender, neither particularly well muscled or fat. Her facial features are generally soft and feminine, with the exception of her nose which is small and sharp. A petite girl, her bust is unimpressive and her hips are slim, with her waist slightly thinner than her hips and bust. Her arms and legs are thin, but not quite boney, due to this, Mai has a look of fragility to her, as if she could be broken with a strike.

Characteristics:

Personality:
She is either the luckiest person you have ever met, or the unluckiest. It has always been hard to tell which it is between the two. But, Mai always remains good natured despite her wild swings in fortune, able to find joy when it's good, and a laugh when her luck is poor. Typically she is of even temperament, but she is touchy about matters of personal pride or when she feels that someone is attempting to use her or get her to do something without asking for her permission. She doesn't particularly like being in the spotlight, but she isn't timid, just reluctant to bring attention to herself.

Likes:
She loves scarves, and always has a small collection of them at any given time. Mai also greatly enjoys collecting drinking flasks from the different places that she has visited. She always liked creating costumes or other accessories in her free time.

Dislikes:
Less of a dislike and more of a fear, Mai is easily unnerved by noises when she isn’t able to identify the source. Beyond that, she dislikes having other people make decisions for her without her consent, as well as eggplants. She really hates eggplants.

Dreams:
She always dreamed of starting a small business based around creating custom costumes.
Game Information:

Weapon Family:
Rapier (Primary)
Thrown Weapons (Secondary use, mainly for hunting, softening up weaker foes, or drawing aggro)

Preferred Armor Types:
Mai usually sports leather or cloth armors, favoring maneuverability over defense. But, she often carries a lightweight metal chest piece for situations where armor is more useful than agility. But, due to her low strength stat, Mai avoids full breastplates as well as chest pieces made of denser metals.

Preferred Playstyle:
In combat Mai fits into the primary DPS playstyle, high speed and low defense requiring a tank to draw aggro for bosses. Outside of combat, she enjoys fiddling with the cooking and crafting system but doesn’t put any serious effort into it and has no desire to play a back line support unit. She most enjoys being in a small group with other players, and dislikes solo play as well as joining large guilds at an equal amount.

Combat Style:
Mai emphasizes speed and accuracy as she fights, using the bonus damage caused by striking enemy weak points and scoring critical hits to offset her low strength stat. She is somewhat reckless, often pressing her luck to score a finishing strike on a weakened enemy rather than waiting for the monster to present her another opening in its defenses.

General Information:

Name: Zen Nagata

Username: Zen

Age: Eighteen years old, born November 12, 2010

Gender: Male

Job: Currently, Zen works as a street vendor, selling produce at a local farmer's market. He has recently graduated High School, and is currently looking into a degree in horticulture.

Biography: Zen lives with his mother and father in Kyoto, the city of his birth and childhood. His mother and father were quite polarized in terms of income; his father, who made small-time cash repairing and reselling bikes, and his mother, a well-renowned real estate agent as well as established household breadwinner, both raised Zen to be very agriculturally minded. He spends hours a day, tending to his garden or laying sprawled out beside it, barefoot, his feet coated with soil.

Zen grew up an only child. He has a sister, who was already off on her own before he could begin to remember, and due to such the two rarely make contact. In fact, the most recent interaction between was the purchase of some revolutionary technology-utilizing game known as "Shards of Memory", which had only a select number of releases, to Zen's knowledge. This, of course, left the issue of having to buy a NuevoGear, the aforementioned piece of futuristic equipment, but his parents gladly pitched in what money they had to offset the financial burden.

With his mother frequently out of town, and his father working in the basement workshop nearly all day, the only real social outlet that Zen could find was during school and lunch break hours. He was fairly studious, and found his teachers to be incredibly amiable, resulting in a deep passion for the campus environment. Socially, he was a jack of all trades, and had friends in various cliques across the board. But, despite all of this, he was never asked to hang out or go to outings outside of school hours. He certainly had no experience with any romantic elements, and rumors of him possibly being gay spread like a wildfire, due to his feminine interests.

Although he would never admit it, Zen was in desperate need of a true friend, one he could rely on at all times and talk to when things got rough. His father, on the rare occasion where he would leave the workshop for anything other than a meal, would always send Zen off with a dismissive comment along the lines of "I need to get back to the grind...", a response the tall young man himself coul understand quite well, seeing as he himself had his own form of employment. Nevertheless, there always seemed to be a gaping hole in his social life, one that wouldn't be filled for quite some time...

Physical Information:

[attachment=0]PSFix_20170126_180801.jpeg[/attachment]

Height:
Zen is a fairly tall boy, marking up to 6 foot 2 inches.

Weight: A slightly surprising 184 pounds, which sounds a bit too heavy for someone of his figure.

Eye Color:
Zen has pale green eyes, which bear a slightly hypnotic effect in the sunlight.

Hair Color and Style: Zen's hair is usually well-cut, but styled to look a bit messier. A slightly shorter cut on the sides, and the top of his head is a somehow stylish-looking mess. He is a big fan of dying his hair all different colors, and currently has a snow white dye, with the occasional darker streak shining through from his natural, ebony color.

Physical Appearance: For some reason or another, Zen has a very well-balanced build, possibly a trait he gained from his father. He does lift weights, which contributes to his athletic appearance and more well-cut features, but thinking of him as a brute is a massive overstatement. He doesn't have the sculpted figure of a model when undressed, but it's clear to see that his body is certainly accustomed to physical labor. His shoulders are a fair amount broader than his hips, and his waist allows for a smooth transition into the form of his upper body.

Characteristics: Zen's athletic ability and frame have generated the social misconception that he is a strong-willed and seemingly masculine figure. Such is completely misleading, seeing as his hobbies include singing and managing outfits in his closet. He has a keen sense for men's fashion, which had frequently lead people to believe he is gay. Rumors like such cause him immense amounts of stress, as he can easily be molded by the thoughts and opinions of those around him, and his confidence is trampled by even the slightest rude or crass statement. He does, from time to time, fantasize about being a knight, and is sometimes found playing the hero with a gardening hoe in his backyard.

Personality: Zen is sociable enough, but if the conversation goes rough, he will retreat, sometimes even in tears. However, if he enjoys the conversation, a shell is stripped off of him, showing his true colors. He's quite the extrovert, and feels the need to frequently check up on the health of his companions; not in a condescending manner, but because he genuinely worries for the health of those he surrounds himself with. At times though, some of his thoughts and actions can easily be labeled as childish.

Likes: Zen enjoys having company over at his house. He's a fairly good chef, and will invite a few friends over for dinner from time to time, if his mom is working late and his dad is fiddling away in the basement. As was stated before, he also loves dressing himself and pairing up outfits to wear for social outings. And for some strange reason he has a fixation with spinning tops.

Dislikes: Zen is absolutely against being singled out, seeing as it's usually for negative reasons, and he can't stand group outings with people he doesn't know. Also, mismatched socks cause him a tremendous amount of distress. And he's scared of the dark. Really bad. To the point where he has to call one of his friends up to talk to if he goes outside at night.

Dreams: Zen, although he will never say it, aspires to become either a father of two children, or a professional singer.


Game Play
Primary Weapon Family:
Spear/Polearm, exceling in the Halberd.
Zen also excels in the Martial Arts family, should his opponent close in at a range too awkward for a polearm to reach.

Preferred Armor Types: Zen perfers a full body plating, although of a lighter weight. Seeing as his weapon is more of a distance-oriented weapon, he wants to make sure he has viable portection.

Preferred Play Style: Zen is very at ease during combat, but maintains constant control in a one on one bout. The extra length of his weapon and his skill with using it enables him to cut off the movements of his opponent, and although not all of his moves are extremely fast, he plays every possible advantage, and remains observant of his environment. He serves as less of a frontline DPS, and more of a supporting role, controlling the ebb and flow of the zone around him.

Combat Style: Seeing as a Polearm usually consists of an odd distribution of a lot of weight, Zen is aware that his attacking speed is a bit slower. However, he makes up for it with raw technique, specializing in feints and non-lethal takedowns before delivering the fatal blow. He's fairly deceptive, and will occasionally resort to dirty tricks (i.e. Kicking up sand). When all else fails, he's never afraid to go in with close-quarters, hand-to-hand combat.

General Information:

Name:
Guy Adam
Username:
Guy Harambe
Age:
19
Gender:
male
Job:
none
Biography:
As far as Guy could tell his life was never his to begin with. You should be this when you grow up, join this club, be friends with this kid, even going to a technical college. His first day was terrifying. Living away from parents was a hard thing for a guy who had never work a day in his life, but Guy adjusted... Or at least that's what head tell his parents. 3 months had passed and the only friends guy had managed to make was the captain of the Gaming club, but he wasn't really Guy's friend he just want new members. For the most part Guy spent his college years ignoring everyone and being a teachers pet in ever class.

Guy's life while not bad was absolutely boring. "no job, no worries, no friends..." he'd repeat to himself over and over again as he thought over and over again about why he hated his life, but one day he thought something else to himself. As Guy woke up on another boring day he thought "why not go to Gaming club?" and so he did. Before he knew it gaming had taken up all of Guy's free time, since he had nothing better to do, and when he found out there was a new VR game Shards of memory was coming out he had to get it.

Physical Information:

Height:
5'10
Weight:
168
Eye Color:
hazel brown
Hair Color and Style:
blonde and wavy, Guy only brushes his hair leaving it to hang at either side of his head.
Physical Appearance:
Image

Characteristics:
Personality:
Guy's personality can be described as mild-manured sadist. While he usually plays nice at first Guy loves to prey on the weak, shy and less intelligent. He'll never admit it but Guy just figures anyone who has a different opinion then himself must be stupid or at least not on his level of intelligence. Despite being very intelligent Guy is easily tricked into doing foolish things due to his competitive nature. Guy also has a soft spot for children. He's no pedo but something about the young children makes him feel as if he has to protect them.
Likes:
Guy loves to feel important or better in any way. Even when he loses guy always finds a way to tell himself he still did better than his opponent. He also loves kids.
Dislikes:
Guy hates shy, weak or less intelligent people, but more then anything he hates being bested. while Guy isn't opposed to admitting he lost challenging someone who defeats him in every way sends him into an uncontrollable salty rage.
Dreams:
Guy has no aspirations of his own.

Game Play:
Primary Weapon Family:
pole-arms (dual spears)
Preferred Armor Types:
Guy prefers to wear whatever looks coolest, which is why his armor is mainly clothing, but does have some sense as too what's functional. Guy wears a chain-mail shirt under a thin white shirt layered with metal plates along his shoulders and collar, while his pants and boots are simple leather.
Preferred Play Style:
Guy prefers a hit his opponent from a safe range while always keeping them within his own. while some would call Guy's play style it's actually more of a reactive play style as he's constantly watching for the slightest movement to tell him weather he should dodge or attack.
Combat Style:
Guy's fighting style is all about mind games. By keeping his opponent within striking distance and out of theirs, he mainly just watches at first while keeping them at a safe distance. After analyzing his opponents Guy goes in for the kill.

General Information:
Name:
Junji Hasime

Username:
JuneBug

Age:
22

Gender:
Male

Job:
Bartender/Writer

Biography:
Junji didn’t have anything truly remarkable happen in his life before the events of Shards of Memory. He was an only child and grew up without a father in Shibuya. Apparently he had died when Junji was still very young. Pictures of him still hang around the house, however, and he's been told he is the spitting image of his dad, though he never saw it. The boy was always creative, delving into the likes of books, movies, and video games even at a young age. Eventually he went on to publish his first book, “Walking in the Wind”, but it only managed to sell about 1,000 copies. Even still, he was not deterred from continuing. As the years went on Junji continued to delve into the world of fantasy choosing it over going off to college after high school.

Even during his secondary school career the boy didn't make many friends. Those he did have chose to go off to college to pursue a better education or went off to travel outside of Shibuya. For a while, he was alone. Turning to writing and online gaming full-time for about two years he was mostly a shut in only going outside for menial tasks and the gym. It wasn't until he got his first real job as a bartender that Junji began interacting with the outside world once more. He even made friends with a lot of his coworkers during his tenure there.

Shards of Memory was released a year later close to the special occasion called a birthday. Knowing that he enjoyed gaming his friend, Sakura, pre-ordered it for him for a birthday present. You could imagine both the excitement on Junji’s face and the irony of the gift. No one could have known the catastrophic affects it would have on the 15,000 participants. Sadly, Junji was one if them.

Physical Information:
Height:
6’2’’

Weight:
180 lbs

Eye Color:
Brown

Hair Color and Style:
Red (dyed), long and messy, occasionally pulled back in a ponytail or bun.

Physical Appearance:
Junji is tall and lanky, but is also sturdy on his feet. Most people who first meet him seem to be intimidated by his large stature but he truly wouldn't hurt a fly. He has very sharp features along his jawline and cheekbones with a small nose. Most times his face is stoic never revealing too much information about his emotions and only allows himself to open up to those he trusts.

Image

Characteristics:
Personality:
Though harsh and hard at first Junji is kind and loyal to a fault with those he sees as allies. He is not afraid to give tough love, however, and can be seen as a jerk because of it. During battles you will not get a word out of the man as he believes the battlefield is no place for idle conversation and instead is for terse comments and necessary orders. Outside of combat, however, he will be your best friend and drinking buddy, though he will usually get a little rowdy without someone there with him to reel him in after a few drinks.

Junji has a very much “mess with my friends mess with me” mentality. Being extremely protective of his friends this usually lands him in more fights than he would like. Even so, he never backs down from a challenge even in the face of impossible odds.

Likes:
Junji wouldn't be anywhere without his books. Always liking to travel to a different world his stories mean more to him now than ever before. In a world where dying is a real possibility it's nice to get his mind away from the fighting. Even still battle is still a big part of his life and anything he can get his hands on to aid him in fighting he will gratefully accept. this include weapons, armor, and other sorts of aid. He would also be lying if he didn't mind the occasional fight. Delving into dungeons and sparring with other players is exhilarating but he dreads having to go off to fight a boss where he or one of his friends may perish. Making a quick friend of the man is not an easy task, but buying him food and alcohol is a quick way into his heart.

Dislikes:
Even before SoM Junji hated those who prayed on the weak and hurt those who couldn't defend themselves. Although he may be a stereotypical defender of the weak there is no better way to describe him when he sees injustice. At the same time he despises those who choose to do nothing when they have the full capability of helping the community. In this case, it's those who have the power to fight the bosses but instead choose a comfy life. People who talk too much for little reason and drunkards also hold a special place in his heart of people to abhor.

Dreams:
Junji hopes to one day become a famous writer and own his own bar.

Game Play:
Weapon Family:
Eastern Family (Primary)
Dual Wield Family (Secondary)

Preferred Armor Types:
Medium Armor: Junji needs both protection and mobility for his role as a frontline DPS. He typically wears armor using a combination of metal, wood, and cloth similar to a samurai’s armor.

Preferred Play Style:
Junji takes a flex role as a frontline DPS. With this he fights with the tanks in order to deal out damage but also has enough protection to take damage when needed if the tanks need help taking agro. He is much better fighting singular enemies such as mob bosses or level bosses rather than a wave of enemies.

Combat Style:
Junji does not specialize in any one weapon. Although this can be seen as a weakness in reality it opens up a full arsenal of weapons at his disposal depending on the situation. He utilizes the uchigatana, katana, and naginata. Thanks to this arsenal Junji is able to switch a plethora of combat styles from being up in the enemies' faces to keeping them at a distance.

General Information:

Name: Ayumi Saikyou (最強 歩み)

Username: Yumi

Age: 15, born April 5, 2012

Gender: Female

Job: Ayumi is currently attending highschool as a sophomore.

Biography: On April 5, 2012, Ayumi Saikyou was born into the world, near her hometown of Kyoto. Her parents didn't have much, but they loved their newborn child with everything that they could muster. Her father worked a full-time job in the urban part of town, but lived in the rural side. His usual drive to work was about an hour, nothing unreasonable, but a daunting task nonetheless. Her mother, on the other hand, stayed home to take care of their newborn, choosing to quit her own job to do so. They had quite a bit of money saved up if they needed to use a bit of it.

As Ayumi grew, she began to challenege her mind, picking up puzzles and various other stimulating activities. It didn't take long for her to discover video games. When her family was visiting a relative's house, and began to play with the kids, they showed her their console, the Xbox Scorpio. She was a little sceptical at first, but once she picked up the controller and booted up the game, she was instantly hooked. With the press of a button, she was transported into a fantasy realm, only reachable through imagination. She must have played for several hours, for when it was time to go, she complained and wanted to stay a bit longer.

As she advanced to middle school, the experience of video games had left a lasting mark on her. Every day, she begged for a gaming console, but her parents refused, telling her that they were too expensive. Every time that they told her this, a part of her would hope that one day, they would say yes. While she was in middle school, she participated in gymnastics and some light weight training.

She continued to participate in gymnastics, but moved up to medium weight training in highschool. One afternoon, after a long day of gymnastics training, she came home to see a Nuevo-Link lieing on her bed. She almost screamed as she ran through the house and hugged her parents tightly. They told her that they could buy one game for her, until they had a little bit more money. Quickly, she ran over to her PC and began browsing through the titles that were avaliable for the Nuevo-Link. One title in particular caught her eye, Shards of Memory. It was currently in beta phase, and had a sign-up sheet on the site. Ecstatically, she quickly signed up for the beta, being accepted as beta tester nine hundred forty-seven. As soon as the beta launched, she was already ready to go, skipping gymnastics practice in anticipation of this moment. She took several deep breaths to calm herself as she dove into the wonderful world of SoM.

As she logged in, the game took her breath away. She was actually able to Feel the world around her. The gentle breeze that bushed the back of her neck, the bright sun that shone down and warmed her skin. This was many times greater than any experience she had with games before. Giddily, she hopped off into the game, exploring to her heart's content. The beta ended quicker than she wanted... She yearned the virtual world that she had spent so much time in. She hoped that she would have enough money saved up to buy the actual game. As the release date approached, she realized that she would have to upgrade her system. She begged her parents, and they eventually conceded, but she would have to pay them back. She nodded quickly and anticipated the launch of her beloved game.

Two days before the game was set to release, Ayumi was already lined up at her local game store, hoping to get a copy. She was way down the line of people, possibly 50 or so had come before her. For two days, she stayed strong, having her parents bring her a couple of sandwiches each morning for her meals. Then... Launch day... Gleefully, she waited as the line began to shrink in front of her, one by one, people began to come out of the store, excited about their purchase. She hoped that she would be able to obtain a copy before they all sold out. Gradually, she became the 42nd... 37th... 29th... 22nd... 13th... 3rd... It was finally time for her to buy the game that she loved so much. As she approached the counter, the man looked tired, and kind of worried. Before she could state why she had come, the man softly announced that he had sold out of SoM copies. The news hit her like a hammer. O-out? But I didn't g-get my copy.. Tears welled in her eyes, as she stared at the ground. This game was something very special to her, it was as if a close relative had died. Slowly, the news began to sink in, as she stood there, staring at her feet. As she began to walk away, the clerk called her back. What could he want?.. He was holding the last copy of SoM in his hand. He explained to her that he thought he had none left, but one copy had been obscured by some paper. Ayumi almost began jumping up and down on the spot, as she gave the man her money and ran home.

As she installed the new upgrade into her Nuevo-Link, she popped SoM into the console. She almost couldn't contain her joy as she booted up the game, and landed in her virtual paradise. Her excitement didn't last for very much longer, however...

Physical Information:

Height: 150 cm (4'9")

Weight: 48 kg (106 lbs)

Eye Color: Rose colored

Hair Color and Style: Silvery-White, medium length

Physical Appearance:

070126_feworiar.jpg (87.73 KiB) Viewed 1278 times
Petite, but athletic and toned. Ayumi's face is usually free of any blemishes, due to the genes that her parents had passed down to her. Her hair is relatively thin, and cut to a length that wouldn't interrupt vigorous physical activity. Her skin is a lighter shade, however; she also blames her inability to get a tan on her genes.

Characteristics:

Personality: Ayumi is quick to forgive, but usually keeps a small grudge in the back of her mind. Usually, she is very outgoing and loves being active. She is also very protective of her close friends, even choosing to put her own life on the line for someone else's. Even though she chooses to do this, the amount of people she cares about dwindle constantly. She doesn't mean to, but she can really lash out at people for making even minor mistakes. She also has a minor superiority complex.

Likes: Ayumi really likes things that challenge her mind and engage her critical thinking skill. She also loves to sit out underneath the moon, and just stare at it. She can't really explain why, but it just calms her. Another thing that she absolutely loves, are gummy bears.

Dislikes: Ayumi absolutely hates when she puts all of her effort into something, and it doesn't work out the way it was intended. Another thing that really irks her, is when someone else touches, or moves something personal without her permission. She also hates brussel sprouts.

Dreams: She had always dreamed of being an Olympic gymnast, until she played SoM, of course.

Game Play

Primary Weapon Family
Two-Handed (Primary)
Western (Secondary)

Preferred Armor Types: Ayumi prefers Heavy metal armor, on all pieces of her body. She prefers protection to agile movements, as she is usually on the front line, protecting other players behind her, while dealing massive damage with her hammer.

Preferred Play Style: She prefers to play the tank role, protecting those behind her by taking aggro. Playing like this, however, is very dangerous, so she relies on her back line supports to heal her when her health drops below 30%. Sometimes, she will recklessly charge into battle, without a second thought, if she thinks she can take the enemy alone. If a strong enemy is spotted, however; she will stop and strategize with her team. She prefers to play in a small group of people, and grind as a whole.

Combat Style: Ayumi fights with reckless abandon at times, putting caution to the wind, swinging her hammer with all of her might. When caution is needed, she likes to think her options through before rushing in. When she squares off against an enemy, she always takes aggro, so that her DPS partner can do damage.

General Information:

Name: Haru Iragaki

Username: Rugaki

Age: 16

Gender: Male

Job: High School Student

Biography:
Haru Iragaki, born on the 6th of May 2011 in Osaka. He's a lucky boy, for he was born to a loving family, with well paying jobs. His father is an executive, while his mother is a renowned writer. He was also blessed with a sister 3 years after his own birth. Because his mother was not the busy person, he was able to spend a lot of time with her and his sister. He was overall pretty satisfied with his family, and his family is satisfied with him. They found out about his intellectual potential very, very soon. While not the super-genius who would be skipping grades all the time, but still smart enough for him to advance one entire grade without any academic problems, and that is all thanks to his mom, who was an ex-teacher. Who knew a family like that would fall into ruin..

When Haru was 9, the family got into a pretty serious car crash. A drunk truck driver hit them squarely by the side, and Haru was the lucky one. His father, the driver of the car instantly died, while his mother was knocked out and had serious injuries which required her to get to the hospital, she's fine now, if only the same could be said about his sister. She probably had the worst of it, she was still conscious and her legs were pretty much destroyed under the debris. While the parents were well.. "Unconscious" she was still fully aware and under panic and crying the whole time. Her crying was the only thing that made Haru able to push himself to call the ambulance. It was a cry he remembers even today. His luck and actions had saved his mother and sister's life. Sadly, the latter's legs were completely paralyzed and have no chance of recovery. As for Haru's own damage, he managed to escape with two scars to haunt the rest of his life. One is a dark blob on the left of his head, covered by his hair, and the other is an emotional scar which ceases to fade for the several months post-accident.

He and his sister received theraphy, and both dropped down a grade in school. For Haru, that means being with his original year group, the fact that he could do better used to constantly depress him. But he had come to terms with it in the present. It was a tough journey, one he wasn't able to complete without the help of video games. It was at this point he became hooked to his Playstation V. His addiction faded though, and he was able to make it back to normal. However, he still occasionally tears up upon seeing his sister in her wheelchair. It is likely that he is taking it worse than her sister. But life eventually became normal again, or at least, it felt normal. Haru Iragaki was still the star-genius of the class, and always will be.

5 years have passed since the incident, and Haru had decided to go attend a prestigious high school in Tokyo. Since he didn't have any relatives over there, and his mother and sister is staying at Osaka, he had no choice but to live in the school's dorm. The two reasons nobody had any qualms about that Haru was capable of being responsible and independent. That and his scholarship covers most of the school fees including dorm fees. This is where his second gaming phase begun. While he didn't bring the Playstation V, he had a neighbor who owns one himself and they play together intensively every week. This roommate eventually became his best friend and gaming rival. It was thanks to him that Haru owned a Neuvo-Link. How exactly? Let's make this simple: Roommate told Haru about Street Fighter competition coming up soon, the grand prize was a Neuvo-Link. The roommate actually wanted it more than Haru, but Haru was his training partner. Since then, they started to play the game for at least 2 hours every single day. Somehow, Haru became better than his roommate, it was as if he had a natural talent for gaming. They both enter the competition, and guess who won? Hint: Roommate was beaten in the last-36. Haru was amazed himself how he was able to beat a professional in his mid-twenties with only weeks of training. Well, it was pretty intense training, to say the least.

After winning his prize, Haru didn't exactly know what to do with it at first. In fact he probably would have sold it if it wasn't for the roommate's suggestion for him to keep it in his room, along with his powerful PC. He still owns it to this day however, his roommate kept a promise that he would never reject Haru if he wanted to use it. It's quite an easy promise to keep since he only uses it on Saturdays at a set time. He can't spend his whole life gaming. He has studies and a social life and everything too. Speaking of social life.. Since Haru was and still is in the age where he has become increasingly interested in the opposite sex. Of course, he found a crush, confessed, and was rejected.. See, Haru wasn't the good-looking all-As students. No, he was seen as quite a nerdy, unsociable, and scrawny individual. It wasn't a surprise that a girl with many admirers rejected him. Luckily, this is during his First Year of Highschool. A wave of change swept over the young boy soon afterwards, he purchased a membership at a nearby gym, and started working out, eating more, and all that stuff. He also joined a club, the Psychology club actually, while making more friends, he learned how to make even more and how to appeal to people and such.

Well, enough about his school life, not much else really happened after that, he just kept on changing for the better. During his Spring holidays, (school starts at April in Japan) Haru stayed at his dorm. Since he had plenty of free-time, he decided to use his Neuvo-Link to good use. His friend, who was an Alpha-Tester for a game called "Shards of Memories" recommended that very game for him. "Knowing you, I think you'll love it." Haru tried it out using his Alpha account, and ended up not sleeping that night. It was absolutely amazing for him.. So many things to do.. It's so much more than a standard VRMMORPG. When the sign-up for Beta was about to come out, Haru was refreshing the page at midnight waiting for the sign up to become available. He ended up being participant #00092. Playing the beta, he loved it even more than the Alpha. He was a big fan of the game, actively contributing and browsing the forums and such. However, since school started, there was less time for that. But then the game launched, his roommate brought him another copy while he let Haru take his notes for him. Haru convinced that his roommate should copy down the notes while he would play the game first; there was no argument. Fortunately for the roommate, it seems that he would never get to play SoM.

Physical Information:

Height: 176 cm (5'9")

Weight: 62 kg (136 lbs)

Eye Color: Aqua Blue (Natural eye color)

Hair Color and Style: Black, medium length hair. Slightly unkempt, especially from the back. His bangs can barely cover his eyes if he forces them to. However, they most likely stay out of the way. One can see he goes to the barber regularly.

Physical Appearance:

Image
- His skin tone is average and healthy for a Japanese; a light tan.
- Since he works out twice a week for a year, his body is considerately toned. Though, his muscles would hardly stand out when he's wearing clothes.
- There's a dark scar on the left side of his head, which is hidden well by his hair.


Characteristics:

Personality:
Haru strives for balance and security in his life. Studies, work, play, social life, fitness, hobbies.. He doesn't really put one over the other overall. Sure, when exams are coming along one has to focus on their studies, and there are other exceptions of course. He's a realist who doesn't believe in pure guessing or speculation, but he follows gut feelings if there's nothing else to rely on. He's ambiverted, so social situations are not too much of a problem for him. Too many strangers among other things will cause him to turn awkward however, and boy does he turn awkward really hard. Despite his outward confidence, he may be internally screaming for relief out of a sticky situation. He's quite empathetic and sympathetic, being in quite a few difficult situations himself; anyone can count on him to lend a hand if you ask. His most impressive trait however, is his intellect, he has an impressive IQ of 137. But his absent-mindedness and constant daydreaming gets in the way of showing it off a bit more, which is fine by him actually.

Likes:
• Haru's brilliant mind enjoys mental-stimulation. Whether it'll be reading, playing chess, or even gaming.
• Sweet Deserts, especially those with pudding-like texture.
• Spicy, but not too spicy.
• PvP, the kind where no one dies.
• Integrity, it's perhaps his favorite personality trait.
• Mentally and emotionally deep conversations. He appreciates people listening to his intellectual rants.
• Bubble Tea
• Psychology, he is deeply intrigued by the inner-workings of the human mind.

Dislikes:
• TOO SPICY!
• Sudden, loud, metallic noises.
• Being isolated or ignored.
• "Heavy" Metal or Dubstep
• Broken Promises, they are a pretty big deal to him.
• Alcoholics, drunk people, and to an extent, alcohol in general.
• People dying on his watch

Dreams:
Haru was never the type to have long-term dreams or goals. He believes that it's unrealistic, and one will be quite disappointed if it wasn't achieved. Therefore, he instead decides it to take one step at a time, and wait until opportunities arrive before deciding what to do with them. So far, he has only planned out what universities he want to go to, not his job, not his major, only his universities. They are well, typical "star-student" choices like Kings' College, University of British Columbia, Howard, Cambridge, etc. He never sets dreams which are a possibility, but a likely reality. In a nutshell, he would probably get to where he wants to go, if he chooses where to go at all.


Game Play

Weapon Family
Dual Wield: Dagger and Eastern Family. On the left and right hand respectively. However, he may switch hands if he wishes.

Preferred Armor Types:
Haru doesn't prefer any armor type from Light or Medium, even though he stays away from Heavy Armor. His playstyle requires him to be as agile as possibly, so the latter is definitely a no-go. However, since he is able to be reasonably agile in Medium Armor, he has no reason to wear it over Light Armor in general. There are still factors which decide which armor he would wear however. For example, when fighting predictable, slow-moving enemies, he wears medium armor. But when facing against faster, perhaps smarter enemies, like players themselves, he wears Light Armor in hopes to further out-maneuver them. This is why he may carry an extra set of armor in addition to the one he's currently wearing.

Preferred Play Style:
Haru tries to keep his playstyle as a flexible, adaptive one. He prefers playing with friends rather than solo. Since he's an excellent strategist and critical thinker, he is usually seen as a welcome member to parties. He has no problems with taking the lead as long as no one is against the fact. However, he despises large raids with strangers, mostly because he has little idea who is capable of what and how to deal with certain people. Outside of fighting, he invests quite a lot of his time into Smithing, his main craft. So one can often find him material farming.

Combat Style:
Haru focuses on speed, maneuverability, agility, cunning, and maybe even deceptions in fights. He finds no joy in simply over-powering an enemy by simply giving the good old over sized weapon a couple of swings. He claims there's no "gameplay" in that. Because he is a dual-wielder, he has many different tricks up his sleeves, which are not necessary complex skills. But rather, movements and gimmicks to either keep his opponent on their toes, or to confuse them to the point where his unpredictability in fights become become even less predicable. Of course, his sort of style is fun to use, and is effective, especially in fights with True AI or PvP. There are drawbacks too of course. He has little crowd-control capabilities, and dealing with anymore than 3 enemies at a time becomes a challenge. He also lacks range, or at least for this point in time.

Name: Natalie Martenson

Username: Natz

Age: 18

Gender: Female

Job: First year college student

Biography: Natalie always enjoyed her life and did as much as she could throughout her various activities she studied in and out of her education. She became very adept at metalworking, geology, engineering and physics, as well as certain skills in chemistry. You could call her a prodigy, but she'd call herself lucky she can understand so much.
Of course, so much potential called for a lot of work, and Natalie often had to miss a nights sleep in order to finish all her tests and papers on time. Her teachers and parents told her it would pay off later in life, but it was clear that she needed something fun to do before she died of boredom or lack of sleep.
It was SoM that broke the spell that so much work had cast on her, when the release was made public it seemed everyone was rushing to get a piece of the action so she did as well. As she started up the game her first thought was about her studies. How exactly would they help her in the real world? What good would all this knowledge actually bring her?
When she awoke in the strange town, the answer was clear. These skills might just bring her good fortune in surviving the battles and helping others, though fighting was one of the things she could not do well she could at least help other players to get her past obstacles.

Height: 6'2"

Weight: 125lb

Eye Colour: Sapphire Blue

Hair Colour: Natalies well maintained Fiery red hair is mostly tied back into a broad ponytail down to shoulder level, while the remaining is combed into bangs which cover the sides of her face and ears. Usually she'll wear some kind of hairclip or something, her favourite is a pair of yellow star shaped ones.

Physical Appearance: Natalie is as pretty as she is smart. Well proportioned, though not built for fighting, she likes to take good care of her body and sometimes likes to try on different styles of clothes to see what looks good.

Image

Characteristics:

Personality: Natalie is pretty much the person who makes the smartest decisions. If you need advice, just ask her. Though she stays far back out of combat (which is pretty smart right off the bat), if you give her some info on your foe she'll figure out how to beat it, especially if the enemy is affiliated with a certain element. If you meet her for the first time, she's plenty friendly, as well as calm and collected, which is why some of the people that know her sometimes refer to her as "Big Sister".

Likes: Simple battles, metalworking, experimenting with all sorts of things, mechanical or automatic things.
Dislikes: Being endangered, being alone, failure in any way, shape or form, people that overreact or don't listen to reason.
Dreams: At the moment in game, Natalie has found a profession as a blacksmith, experimenting with different combinations of metals, minerals, gemstones, dusts, magical items, or any other items in order to create special alloys and materials for weapons or tools. She dreams of finding a combination of materials so perfect it can get her all the way to the end of the game so she can go back to her old life.

Game Information:
Weapon Family: Broadswords/Cleavers
Preferred Armour Types:
Since Natalie stays away from most physical combat, she does use specially made armour dedicated to protecting from magic rather than physical. This consists of a red and black dress with sleeves and a ribbon tied into a bow around her waist that matches, also present are small triangular pieces of black fabric lining the base of her dress, giving the edge a zig-zagging look. She also wears brown leather shorts and matching boots that go up to her thighs, and all of her outfit is made to give her resistance to magic based attacks.
Preferred Play Style: Not having much practice in video games, Natalie stays out of combat and focuses on support. This includes providing specialised weaponry to counter an enemies attacks or exploit its weaknesses, giving cover from enemy fire and giving advice on tactics and skills.

Combat Style: If she has to fight, she will undoubtedly use her favourite weapon of all time: a large handguardless sword with a slanted blade other than a pointed one (a cleaver) designed for crushing rather than striking. (Think Clouds sword from Final Fantasy, but a little smaller.) This sword is heavy but powerful, so attacks will be slow but do heavy damage. The blade of this sword is made of an unknown alloy that Natalie once made, but forgot the recipe of how to create it.

Name: Renge Oribe

Username: Rei

Age: 19

Gender: Female

Job: Transfer Student

Biography:

Renge was born and raised in Hokkaido, and lived like any normal person would there until she got the chance of a lifetime. She was able to transfer to the US on a school exchange program, and eventually convinced her family to move there after deciding to stay. She became very invested in Western culture and her family don't really have a problem with that.
When SoM came out, VR was a relatively regular thing for Renge. Her rich uncle once bought her a VR music player and she loved it a lot. Video games were also a favorite. She had originally played stategy games, competitive FPSs and turn based RPGs that were popular at the time. (These last ones made her very good at balancing status effects) She originally started playing them to disprove a male schoolmate who was a firm believer of the "girls can't play video games" trope, but soon loved them as much as VR music. When the two merged as SoM, it was pretty much a "shut up and take my money" moment.

Her in-game life was...short lived. She became the first player to die, for reasons unknown. However, instead of being killed in the real world, her data was recycled as that of the boss fight for a floor filled with flowers, as that boss had encountered an error and therefore failed to generate. She is alive but her in game self is not the same person, driven by an AI and involuntarily hostile to all players who may get far enough to reach her. The lore of the area is that she defeated the original boss and took over the floor as her kingdom.

Image

Height: Average

Weight: Light

Eye Color: Pink

Hair Color and Style: Renge has greyish pink hair tied into curly pigtails behind her head by red and white ribbons. Any remaining locks are curly and over her shoulders.

Personality:

As a player Renge was just happy to be included in things like raids and a very good potion maker even with the limited healing items on the first floor. Fairly innocent and fun-loving were also words used do describe her.

Post-boss playerwise, she's much more serious and focused, but not without her fun loving moments and wild sense of humor. Turn based gameplay gives her extensive knowledge of what buffs or debuffs to apply, who to do such to and when the best time for this is. As such she fills the role of team healer and effect distributor.

She likes Western culture and has adapted as such. She speaks fluent English and can hide her Japanese accent surprisingly well. She'll also sometimes quote from TV shows and movies.

Likes:

Renges favorite thing in the world is flowers, if you hadn't already guessed. Beautiful things hold a special place in her heart and she's not ashamed of preferring beauty on the outside. Flowers, romance and hope make her very happy.

Dislikes: As she had actually died and been revived to a point, anything relating to death makes her uneasy and repulses her. She does not like going into places relative to death like tombs or catacombs and will avoid doing so if possible, she is also reluctant to go to dangerous and risky places.

Dreams: Renge wants everyone to make it out into the real world, for no person to be alone throughout the entirety of the ordeal. When she escapes she wants to live a peaceful life with a huge garden.

Game Information:
(NOTE: this part is separated into her player stats and boss stats)

Player Stats
Weapon Family: Blunt/Trauma Weapons

Preferred Armor Type: Like Natz she prefers light clothes made of fabric rather than metal that are resistant to stat effects and magical damage. As she's not a front line fighter there really is no need for this. Her speed is what keeps her alive.

Preferred Playstyle: Renge only does support. To fight directly would be full blown suicide with her low level and inexperience with combat. She stays back even further than Natz would and supplies healing, resistance, regeneration, strength and debuff potions. Since she is a very weak team member players should defend her as much as possible while she supports them.

Boss Stats:

Name: The Rose Princess (Rose Maiden, Angel of Blossom)

Floor: 3

Quest: Main Quest Line

Appearance: The Rose Princess wears a large pink and white formal dress fit for royalty. Where she walks she spreads rose petals to the wind. Her hair is tied with red and white ribbons of intricate design, and a silver tiara sits atop her head.



Combat:

Weakness: She has low defense and a relatively small health pool that has a fast regen rate, but not fast enough to counter heavy attacks well. A few well-timed skills could kill her outright.

Strategy: She has high attack power and can attack with wind, water and earth elements. For defense she relies on her speed, as she can quickly avoid attacks and stays back quite often.

Support: She can summon support from five large flowers that attack with a variety of elements depending on the color of their petals. All of these flowers are weak to fire and wind, and are immune to water and the element they represent. If the flowers element is the same as its weakness it will still be vulnerable to that element but less so. Players will be unable to attack RP until all five flowers are destroyed.
RP has a second summoning moment where the air suddenly smells sweet and bugs appear. These consist of bees and butterflies, and they are all weak to thunder and wind. One type of butterfly, a purple one, can revive killed bugs. (Note: These enemies will not be anything new by the time the boss fight starts, as these are commonplace among the floor. The flower enemies are smaller and weaker outside)

Extra:

Biography For many long years the Everblooming Fields were in disarray. The people lived in fear of the monsters that roamed the meadows and their towns grew weary of resistance.
But one day everything went silent. An unknown heroine had allegedly slain the great bloom from which the monsters had come from, and it seemed like peace for many years to come.
But it was not so. The heroine claimed all the fields as her kingdom and turned the creatures on anyone who dared resist. Many villages have sided with her for protection, but many still do not support the Rose Princess and her ways. Now they are victim to not only many more sieges from these vile creatures, but organized ones at that.
To anyone whom it may concern: You must end the Princesses reign of terror. Whether you spill her blood or not, it does not matter to them. To us.

Personality: RP is flaunty,elegant, rather ostentatious and doesn't take too kindly to would-be assassins. Even so, there are moments when it feels like she is more human than any other boss. What that could mean isn't fully understood...

Other: RP has a Mercy Bonus, if players are successful in convincing her to cease hostilities by convincing her that she is a player like themselves, then the fight will end and the next floor will be opened. Players will not receive XP but will gain loot, and Renge will join the team as party healer.

General Information:

Name: Fuyuko “Fuyu” or “Fuu” Yuuki Hisara

Username:
Hisa

Age:
Twenty-Three, born January 14th, 2004.

Gender:
Female

Job:
Fuyu was an Idol singer before she had gotten trapped in SoM. Her fan base wasn't the largest, but it had been growing steadily after a string of songs which were well received by Japanese and American audiences.

Biography
Fuyuko Yuuki Hisara was born to a Japanese business woman, an American businessman and one very strange relationship. Her father had come to Japan to oversee a business deal, and while in Japan he had met her mother and the two had fallen in love. It was scarcely a few months into their relationship before her father proposed and her mother accepted without a second thought. And, from there the oddities began.

For starters, neither of her parents wished to leave their respective places of employment to move to the other’s country to live. So, the two maintained a strange long distance relationship coupled with constant flights to visit the other. For many, well most, well all really, couples and arrangement would be a strain. A hardship. Weaker men and women might be tempted to wander, and try to find a more permanent arrangement with a lover. For her parents however, this distance only seemed to make the two closer. While apart the two practically had phones glued to their hands as they kept in constant contact, and I’ll give you one guess as to who either of her parents had on speed dial.

And, into this strange relationship, one chilly winter Fuyuko was born. The few years after her birth, and that of her later sister and brother were the closest her parents ever came to living together like a normal family as her father moved to Japan for several years.

Due to her parent’s odd living arrangement, Fuyu lived an equally odd childhood as she constantly split her time between her mother’s home in Japan and her father’s home in America. For Fuyu, music became a way for her to bridge her two cultural heritages, and video games, MMO’s specifically became a way for her to keep in touch with her friends whenever she moved to a different country. So, from an early age, Fuyu wanted to be a singer. She was finishing up her college career when she made her big break, a producer liked her demo song, and called her to the studio to prove her worth. And, well, those songs they liked as well. As she began her career as an idol, video games became her stress relief. She was lucky to get into the alpha test, lucky to even know it was happening, she had been number eight-hundred and seventy five out of one thousand. She had been surfing the net when she had stumbled upon the sign-up for the alpha. The test had been short, but it had blown her away. Unlike other home VR games, Shards of Memory had been one of the few which had gotten the replication of reality correct.

With her schedule it had been hard to keep an eye out for the beta test, but she was still one of the first one thousand to get into the two thousand person beta test.

Getting a copy of the game had been tricky, but the employee of the game store had been a fan, and had held a copy for her. Which had been a very sweet thing for him to have done.

She kind of wishes he hadn’t have done it now, but still, it was the thought that counted.

Physical Information:

Height:
Fuyu stands at five foot, six inches tall or one-hundred and seventy centimeters.

Weight:
Fuyu weights one-hundred and forty-three pounds or sixty-five kilograms.

Eye Color:
Fuyuko’s eyes are green, but different shades. Her right eye is a sharp forest green, while her left eyes is much more mellow, like someone had poured just enough blue into the mix to dull the green.

Hair Color and Style:
Fuyu’s hair is black and comes down to about halfway down her neck, and she often ties it behind her head in a short tail. Her bangs come down to her eyebrows, and is parted on the left side. One lock of her hair hanging down from her right temple is longer than the rest, reaching almost to her shoulder and well braided. Something she had started as a joke back in high school, “I'll cut this hair once I finally get a boyfriend,” and, well, he hasn't cut it since.

Physical Appearance:
Image

Fuyu is in good shape, part pressure to maintain her image by her company, and part exercise routine she had started up back when she first started high school. The muscles in her legs and arms are toned and fairly well defined, while those in her torso and neck are generally smooth. Her hips are rounded, her waist a smooth inward draw, while her bust is on the heavier side of average. Her skin is fairly pale due to her father’s genes.

The features of her face are generally sharp. Her jawline is well defined and her chin narrow, her nose is short but sharp, and her cheekbones are smooth. Her lips are a dark red and fairly full.

Characteristics:

Personality:
Fuyu is a bright individual, both on the stage and off. She is the kind of person who always has an easy smile to offer a stranger or ready for a pleasant chat with a friend. She loves to meet people, and she is the kind of person who shines in the spotlight rather than wilting from the pressure. She is a stubborn girl, hard to get to back down once she gets an idea of some kind in her head, and a strong feeling of right and wrong. She is able to control her fear well, and can keep her cool even when those around her are starting to freak out.

Likes:
Fuyu loves to sing and compose new songs, as well energetic buzz that a crowd produces right before she starts a show. She loves cloudy and overcast days, especially if it is raining. She rather enjoys scary things as well.

Dislikes:
She hates the idea of being left behind, and fears the idea that she could be forgotten. Just another name lost to the passage of time. She also dislikes long periods of time alone if she doesn’t have anything to occupy her mind. She had a hard time eating spicy foods.

Dreams:
Since she was a child, Fuyu had dreamed of making it big in the music industry, and, while she hasn’t become a household name yet, she is currently living her dream.

Gameplay:

Primary Weapon Family:
Western
Polearm
Dual

Preferred Armor Types:
Fuyu favors leather armors and long coats over the heavier metal breastplates or full plates usually worn by tanks and other frontline fighters.

Preferred Play Style:
Fuyu is a group player and cannot stand playing solo. What's the point of playing an MMO if you aren't going to interact with your fellow players? Especially when you can actually give them a wave of your hand and say hello. In combat Fuyu, while not a true tank, often takes it upon herself to draw enemy aggro to give lighter strength or attack oriented builds an opportunity to attack the enemy without being in danger. Outside of combat Fuyu typically spends more time chatting with friends rather than work on any of her non-combat oriented skills.

Combat Style:
In combat Fuyu is extremely hard on her weapons. Where most tanks have shields or heavy metal armors to absorb blows, she uses her weapons to block and parry incoming attacks. She had a highly aggressive playstyle preferring to keep her enemy off balance rather than having to focus on keeping her defenses up. Fuyu also has a remarkable reaction time, which in combat she often is forced to use to its full effect as she does all she can to keep an enemy’s blade from finding its way into her flesh.

  • General Information:
  • Name: Teru Eikichi 「輝 栄吉」
  • Username: Ichiro 「一路」 (Lit. One Way.)
  • Age: 32. Born March 2nd, 1995.
  • Gender: Male
  • Job: Teru Family Leader, ruling Yakuza family at the Shinjuku-ku province.
  • Biography: Eikichi, eldest son of three and the only male in his generation was raised under his mother's caring mantle most of his life, with his father as a guide in school subjects and various others considered "Real life issues." He is older than his sisters by two and five years, which means he didn't have to change diapers until his second sibling came. He multitasked life in his early years until halfway through after his first decade, at around his teen years, when he went to highschool and his sisters were old enough to take care of themselves-- Mostly.

    His parents' incomes came from the local sauna which they owned, since it was famous around the area it would bring in a lot of costumers and regulars. A few of them were more notorious than others, such as the casual mobster--Say Yakuza-- which came to visit after a long day. They never caused any ruckus and always kept their payments at date, which meant they were always welcome. With time and as anyone would expect from a curious teenager, Eikichi started feeling attracted by the members of the Yakuza and their affairs. The idea of being one of them slowly made it's way into his brain and, eventually, he would be found digging up information about the subject.

    Hidden from his parents and sisters, the young Eikichi made contact with one of the Yakuza clients and asked to join. It is no surprise that they turned him down at first, being a highschool student--With a bit more than average grades-- and all. Nonetheless, he insisted on this idea which nobody would take off his mind. He didn't speak to his classmates, family, or few friends about it, he knew it would get him in trouble. Years passed and he tried again, one more time, after he graduated from highschool. To everyone's surprise, he was finally accepted by one of the smaller families. As the 'new kid', he took on small and annoying tasks for the sake of staying and proving his worth.

    Hard work and dedication were his best friends from then on, focusing on maintaining a low profile like before while he kept an eye on the province's interests. The economy's base as well as culture were oddly overlooked by the Yakuza in this area, making sure to keep the streets clean from hooligans and any chaos. It was actually something of which to be proud, he was helping others to keep his hometown safe and sound. He belonged to the now disbanded Kagenore Family for a few years, and he still thanks the former members for believing in him.

    This was until the family war that went down on the area, a secret to the civilians but not to them. A relatively new family had been gaining strength in numbers and tried to take over the area, costing many lives in the process. It ended the same month that they started taking relatives as hostages, asking for submission to the other families. One of the hostages was Eikichi's unfortunate younger sister, who didn't have knowledge of his double life until then. With help, effort, and the blood-boiling need to save his sister, he commanded a small movement that overthrew the rebelling family's leader and caused it to disband.

    Things went uphill from then on. His sister swore to keep his secret, but still told their parents and other sister; their reaction was surprisingly possitive at this. He still asked them to stay away from his business, which they agreed on. Eikichi was given a great reward for his deeds, consisting of a good amount of Yen. With this, he started his own-- The Teru Family. Most of the members from the recently disbanded Kagenore Family, due to their leader's decease, joined him gladly. From this point onwards, he decided to give it his all at managing both his Family and the streets of his hometown.

    The years went on almost like routine, working his body and his mind equally for the best of the people. His Family at this point was the ruling force in Shinjuku-ku, and was somehow known and unknown. Other families knew them, as well as policemen and other important figures with which they shared contacts, but to the people they were some sort strange force. "Don't mess with the men in suits." And "If you do bad things, they will know and come for you." Were the most used phrases by the common folk, who didn't necessarily know what was it all about. It was all good, until one day, his younger sister became horribly sick. His parents were busy, and his other sister was at work, so it was his turn to take care of her.

    Leaving his trusted right hand in command for the week, he went back home and attended her. During that week, they spoke of many things, many of which they had years without even touching. Their music tastes, TV shows, but most of all, their everyday lives. He discovered that his little sister was a videogame lover, and had been saving up for something called "Neuvo-Link" which came with a game. It had arrived that day, but she was too tired to even receive it at the door. Curious about his sister's 'secret life', he decided to test it out for himself and play "Shards of Memories" while she rested. Thanks to the Gods that the poor woman was too tired.

  • Characteristics:
  • Personality: Eikichi is a man of promise, commitment, responsibility and order. He is often seen thinking about his next moves many days ahead, since he likes to be aware of his evironment and explore the possibilities before jumping carelessly into action. Honesty is one of his strongest points, though he applies dual morality when it comes to this because of his lifestyle. He's a calm figure on the outside, following the flow of things and changing his course of action as the situation requires it while avoiding any surprised expressions. He is not stoic at all, he just doesn't let others known he was caught off guard-- If that ever happens.

    When around friends or family, Eikichi is a very cheerful man who shows his love and care through words and actions. Memorizing people's likes and dislikes for example, then bringing them a much desired gift. As expected, his sense of brotherhood is firm. He never leaves someone behind on purpose unless instructed otherwise or if the situation requires it, having a very realistic overlook of some situations affects this. Of course, he is also a man of business, how could he not be? And separating family, friends and the like from business is something he does on a daily basis. If you're a friend and want money from him, be prepared to pay your debts or lose a friend. There are always exceptions, but they are scarce.
  • Likes: Smoking, he is addicted to this and could even have anxiety attacks if he doesn't smoke for extended periods of time. His second to best like is ironically food, since smokers basically lose sense of taste. But he is still a food lover and enthusiast, and is also a good cook. Life overall is a like for him, the nature of things and how time flows allowing for everything to move accordingly.
  • Dislikes: Bluffing. That sole word irks him, and he has a reason to. From past experiences, he has come to hate people who bluff and brag about their supposed skills. Either show your wood is worth it or be used to fuel the fire in others' souls like the useless stick you are.
  • Dreams: Nothing big nor small, but just fit. Eikichi dreams with finding someone outside of his job who won't judge him for what he is. Falling in love, making a family and raising a child, even at his age, is his biggest dream.

    Game Play
  • Primary Weapon Family:
    Bludgeon Family
    Martial Arts Family
  • Preferred Armor Types: Medium armor, sometimes light plates. Preferably those that will provide him enough mobility and good defense in case he gets hit, you're never too cautious.
  • Preferred Play Style: He prefers to lead a group of players rather than playing solo all the time, though he will do so if the former is not the best option. As expected, he'd love to try forming a guild of some sorts and get to familiarize with his members all over. Taking on each challenge that appears is on his to-do list, but there must be an order to accomplish every one. This means he's fond of completing every floor's quests, but each at their own time.
  • Combat Style: Stance, wait, attack. The basics of combat is a solid base that many forget, and are very important for advanced battle. Waiting for the right moment to attack is crucial, as well as knowing when to stop and step back. His combat style is very logical and analytic, finding patterns and weak spots in his enemies quickly to later exploit them at will. Despite his odd choice of weapon in-game, he chooses a style very much like samurai, including parries and counter attacks in his repertoire. His fighting style can be described as passive-aggressive.
