藕 Cult of The Lotus 藕

Post by Azra » Mon Jul 22, 2019 8:14 pm

The Lotus Clan had always looked to boost the abilities of humans, but metahumans should be no different. Meta, super, mutation whatever one chooses to call it though it should be seen as nothing more than human. So we wish to change that for the better. Of course many will say we're the villain, the criminal and so on. But there should be nothing wrong in giving power to the people.

In recent months the cult has been expanding. It started with recruiting in an asylum. Moved to such in a hospice while securing a Music Industry. Then went to tying in much of the Yakuza into the clandestine faction.
Shattered: "Body of The Lotus"
image.jpeg (389.43 KiB) Viewed 738 times
Name: Amadi
Age: 29
sex: F
Height: 6'2"
Weight: 215lbs
Hair Color: Black
Eye Color: Red
Role Within The Cult: As the Lotus clan grew over the years despite favoring the human condition it gradually collected metahumans as well. The Cult's ideal is that the power of metahumans shouldn't be belonging to a minority that power should be gifted to others. Meanwhile the gifts of the Lotus should have a chance to pass on to far more. "The Body" is a role dedicated to defending the head of the cult and embodying the physicality of superhumans and Lotus physical conditioning.
Powers: Amadi has become known as the Shattered Lotus as within every strike bones break like glass. Although her upper limits show being capable of punching through iron and lifting vehicles. With this of course is durability being barely scratched by high calibur munitions and high speed collisions leaving little more than bruises.
Gear: Usually brings with her a pair of blades and a rebreather rarely finding much need for anything else.
Ideology: "If everyone shows capacity for evil there should be no hesitation in killing anyone."
History: "I knew from an early age little could harm me, that I never seemed to fall ill. A dumb child nearly was poisoned for trying to eat a battery sure but any accident was simply a thrill. As a child though I saw parents die from a robbery, their killers were just a couple trying to get ahead in life just a bit more money to get by. They weren't bad people but they did a bad thing, because of this I hated them. Because of who they were they wanted to take me in for the night and drop me off at an orphanage in the morning but instead I lashed out. Small fists felt skulls shatter from their blows, I didn't think myself a bad person but I'd done a bad thing. A clan found me not long after a gathering I find to be of good people doing nessecary evil, Asuka though has enlightened me of a need for more.
Ice of Fire: "Heart and Soul of The Lotus"
image.jpeg (1023.5 KiB) Viewed 737 times

Name: Hiro
Age: 57
sex: M
Height: 6'8
Weight: 230 lbs
Hair Color: Black
Eye Color: Blue
Role Within The Cult:
Powers: Cold Pyrokinesis/Hot Cryokinesis the twins had a strange aspect of their powers where the affects of their abilities were swapped. Abilities of ice and fire manipulation remains the same, it's just that the ice burns and fire freezes. The brother Hanzo has passed on leaving just the Pyrokinesis.
Gear: Hiro brings a katana though and also is known to carry an assortment of kunai some having chains connected to them.
Ideology: "A Lotus at their heart just wishes for the thrill of confrontation. The soul of the Lotus is to kill in silence."
History: "We would argue our history is of minor significance. Twins born to a clan of assassins and raised to find such a home. For my brother Hanzo nothing became as exhilarating as taking a target down in silence. For myself nothing was more thrilling than the numbers stacked against me in combat. For this we're given the position of heart and soul of the clan, a pair of individuals who showcase what the clan was and is at its core. Granted in our faith in Asuka we understand that view may one day change, there's a chance this is about rebirth over sticking to old ways. With Hanzo gone I hope to embody both in my passing. More so though I hope to draw out that kind of fire in my niece."
Distorted: "Head of The Lotus"
image.jpeg (119.75 KiB) Viewed 738 times
Name: Asuka Shimuri
Age: 18
sex: F
Height: 5'7"
Weight: 136lbs
Hair Color: Black
Eye Color: Red
Role Within The Cult: Leader
Powers: "I simply speak things into being, instead let me tell you of the other Chances of the clan. The Chance of Understanding and Resilience. Of knowing the enemy and ones self, and knowing how to endure."
Gear: Little more than reinforced gloves.
Ideology: "I was born into the clan the pride in myself it brought me should be passed on. They shunned my gift though when I would say such a blessing should be shared."
History?: "There are many chances of the Lotus and for a Lotus. Some are born some are made, it teaches an understanding of self though which is the most important aspect. Key word there is understanding, for those of us with a gift we become in-tune to all that it could be. For those without a gift it further improves the body allowing a sort of natural advantage to other actions. For a child seen as a threat there was a need for resilience. Again a key word there, as an art was learned to assist the clan in surviving what they should not. It isn't like the other chances where reflexes are grand or healing is brief, this is an art allowing a girl to be hit by a superhuman and not having her bones shattered. Perhaps it's the closest to mysticism or maybe it's just awareness on a level that looks like it. In either case I endured and through these Hope to help the rest of humanity to endure. Now perhaps that doesn't tell the story of a girl as much as you'd like, but faith does usually come with some unknowns.

Additions Post the event dubbed Ninja Asylum

It has been decided that we will in the future mostly just send three or four of us at a time. Asuka and a few followers to perform a mission as opposed to a number of ninja's at least in most situations. However that isn't to say others won't be present. Specifically James Mcair and Maria Matina who record the cults actions, one of us who can teleport people and the devilish mute who speaks through the mind. We grew in number during the asylum gaining roughly twenty or so new recruits of various ability of those two soon to be seen in the field are as follows.

Moderate amount of recruits were obtained on a train in NYC. Most notably being Lily and Neon a number of interventions helped stave off some recruitment. A rather substantial amount of recruits was obtained during the mission in Vegas, to most it was a Russian assassin and an accomplice. That was us though and the concert we had while thwarted by Teja proved resourceful. We only got about forty percent of the audience being generous, and had hoped for certainly more but our numbers are growing.

The Vocal Lotus "Voice of the Lotus"

Name: Cadence Kotone
Age: 26
sex: F
Height: 5'9"
Weight: 100lbs
Hair Color: Violet
Eye Color: Violet
Role Within The Cult: "To make us either heard or a whisper"
Powers: Vocal has the power to generate and manipulate sounds with a deep understanding of frequencies. Through this she can somewhat control and manipulate emotional responses, release devastating sound attacks, generate heat, or muffle sound. Without going to in depth with abilities apart of her understanding comes down to her body being seemingly lighter then it ought to be as if she was sound. Because of this she can accelerate herself to the speed of sound and function at such velocity that being 767 mph or 343 meters per second.
Gear: Usually just a katana and the shimmering Violet projections of her sound attacks, which at times may look like for example knives or a spear. This is more just for the enjoyment of having a visual aspect to a fight it doesn't necessarily need to have such a glow.
Ideology: "It was through Asuka I've become intune to just how significant sound can be."
History: "A nurse at the asylum let's leave it at that and simply see what becomes of me now."

Kira TheNeon Dragon


THY BIRTH TITLE: Kira Illumina
THAT WHICH YOU SHALL KNOW ME AS: Neon, or to be exact Neon Dragon of Artistic Brutality
Age: 18, it's a number no need to be to expressive there
Height: 5'6
Weight: No
Eye color: "Uh same as your headlights"
Hair Color: "urple"
~Artistry Manipulation~ Kira possesses the ability to control things like ink and paint and the ability to make them real. This allows for bringing things like tattoos or spray painted art to life. Or to take the art say on posters and walls and make it real. She can in addition to this simply control paint and ink to make things at her will, these can be quite strong despite being made of otherwise less than favorable materials. To be exact they almost mirror the intent, a crafted bat for example would be like a cheap wooden one then say the higher end. The creatures might not say have a one to one jaw strength in their bite but is still close enough to be hard to miss. However any construct of hers does require concentration and the scale or amount will make the concentration more important.

~ Light Manipulation~ The ability to control light in color, shape and to a degree heat. Usually it's more visual then something useful, she can't make it magically hard for example. It would almost seem useless likely if not for how she insists on using it. The one exception being of course the use of lasers, this however is difficult to perform. If she say controlled a dragon from afar she might be able to use such an attack but under stress when someone points a gun at her is another story.

~Martial Arts~ A lotus is born and raised to be a master of hand to hand combat. This prowess is interwoven into the newly initiated as well. One might argue they aren't quite as accomplished as the more fully brought in members. No denying though at least Kira can now fight rather then trying to stand up for others and just being shaken down.

~Spray Paint and paint supplies~ Kira always was fond of spray painting and art class, and as such has almost always on her person paints brushes and spray paint. Which now means she has an arsenal at her disposal on the regular.

~A glowing stick~ Her best friend was going to have to move last year, so as their last night to hang out they went to a rave. Then afterwards to always remember eachother got a pair of glow sticks tattooed to their wrists. These tattoos are now brought to life by her as weapons if needed. Interestingly they require no concentration themselves.

~Additional~ Being a Lotus she sometimes may bring kunai or other "ninja" weapons with her. Typically though she isn't fond of much besides kunai. If anything all she is likely to have is a portable speaker phone and charger.

Kira has always been a trouble maker of her school. She usually was around for art class, band and gym but other than that was often late if she even showed up. She's been known to get into fights to help out anyone being picked on or well poorly attempting to stand up for them. Even when she did show up for classes though she usually just sleeps or draws. It just didn't apeal to her. She could see it from early on her powers were a joke, she wasn't going to get some Olympic form, she wasn't a hero. Parents would argue, and while just wanting to spend time with them her trouble making just made them fight more if anything.

About the only spark she'd been feeling recently was from her girlfriend Lily. Which was why when she learned what Lotus was up to in NYC she was so insistent. Kira in that backpack she had on the train, felt like she'd put her whole excuse of a life in there. She was ready to say goodby to anything and everything (minus Lily) to be someone else.

After the concert by Vocal Sounds in Las Vegas which had an assassination the same night, Kira has become known as a DJ in Vegas. The light for many of the best parties. But of course she isn't just out to be the next icon of EDM or just some slightly more visible rave girl.
