God Complex: Out of Time
<i>[Kazuo would be glad his Chimera could follow him without much of an issue, and all of them together would face Elian. The teenager would shrug and walk slowly towards his next destination.]</i>
"If you say so, I'll just finish all that quickly and go get my prize from however is trying to all idiotic about it."
<i>[With not much else to say, he would walk into the new door, hopefully followed by his Chimera as well.]</i>
God Complex: Out of Time
<i>[Kazuo would wink at Motley as she says her last words, not losing his smile. At the same time, Serpent would return to its senses and Hawk would fully calm down. All three Chimera remain on stand-by as Elian makes his voice obvious.]</i>
"Spoken highly of...? What is that supposed to- Hey, what promise!?"
<i>[He was gone before he could properly ask these questions. He figured he could worry about all that later. With his Vibration Field still up, forcing him to merely walk from place to place and a few blades in stock, he was ready for some fight right away, not to mention his Chimera were ready to go.]</i>
"He was about to say final. So, either it wasn't that many people, or it'll be a free-for-all. This is dangerous. Let's go, everyone."
<i>[Kazuo would fully unsheathe his rapier and walk forward towards the place he would need to go to. Assuming it was large enough, then he would walk forward while covered by a white aura, followed by his Chimera in line following from behind. Otherwise, Serpent would unhinge its jaw and make a way for itself and everyone going forward, essentially trying to dig a path. If possible, Kazuo wanted to move ahead with all three Chimera.]</i>
<spoiler>Blades Stock: 12
Vibration Field: Level 2</spoiler>
God Complex: Out of Time
<i>[Kazuo would watch as Motley falls to the ground, in absolute fear due to what his Serpent had casted. He would stay silent, until he slowly chuckles, trying to keep it together before bursting out laughing, both allowing his tension to leave his body, as it combines with his pure joy of besting this one "perfect being".]</i>
"What wrong!? Got nothing to say!? Weren't you perfect!? How come you look so pathetic now then!?"
<i>[He would make Hawk fall to the ground as he himself leaps out of the back of the bird. He would slowly walk closer to the fearful Motley. He didn't want to get too close in case it was a trap, or even if him getting too close would force her out of her illusions and terror. At this time, Tortoise would reveal its guillotine head, tail and remaining limbs, making the air colder around it, as Serpent still requires a few moments to recover.]</i>
<i>[Knowing he would have to fight soon again, he would release a single and very short blade upon his right hand. This time it should've been 8 swords, but the remaining 7 would add up to the already stocked 5, bringing it to a total of 12. He needed to prepare.]</i>
"This... weird spectral thing. It was your power...?"
<i>[Looking at the girl's expression, he couldn't help but feel a bit bad, if not actually saddened. He could feel for her more human form. Even so, he would lift his left hand. Tortoise would open its mouth and charge up its next move.]</i>
"You are cuter like this, as a human that doesn't attempt to be what they are not. Not even gods can be perfect, nothing will ever be. Think of this if you can hear me, and when your soul returns to this world..."
<i>[A small and sharp projectile is finished.]</i>
"...remember not to look down on me. Goodbye."
<i>[He would lower his arm as Tortoise unleashes its Cold Injection onto Motley; the plasma-like projectile would do as before, impacting within and turning her into a living iceberg that would keep her trapped forever. He didn't feel like trying to kill her, not just because it may turn out to be impossible, but also because he couldn't help but feel sorry for her right at the end.]</i>
<spoiler>Blades Stock: 12
Vibration Field: Level 2
God Complex: Out of Time
"What the hell are you...!? Doesn't matter, this is my chance!!"
<i>[Tortoise would be unable to respond to enemy's attack, and would indeed be launched back at Kazuo and Hawk. This time around however, it was Kazuo the one that would act as a shield. Considering it is a physical impact, Hawk would turn around as Kazuo braces himself to recive the impact, completely nullifying it and absorbing the vibrations, raising his Field to Level 2 without much of an inconvenience. Tortoise would fall to the ground, still within his shell, moments away from awakening.]</i>
"Your mind is weak, and without a strong spirit. Lacking any of that makes you an imperfect being. Allow me to show you what terror truly means. High-Speed Alloy and...!"
<i>[This time bigger pieces of machinery and metal would be released into the ground, crashing against the group of 5 blades he had created on the floor. All the pieces would fly up into the sky as Kazuo claps his hands together, red markings leaving his body and shooting themselves at the pieces.]</i>
"<b>DEEP TRANSMIGRATION!! I call upon your name, Bearer of the Mark...!!</b>"
<i>[All the pieces would start to become one. The metal and machinery would join as one, creating massive and segmented similarly to how a train separates its tracks, all held together by biological tissue that it was clear to be harder than even the strongest alloys. These parts would gain random spikes, and the tail would be a massive rough blade. Finally, the head would at first get the shape of a serpent, slowly corrupting itself until a massive horn pointing to the back appears on top of its head; its jaw would grow and size and become heavier as millions of sharp blades appear on its sides, both up and below inside the mouth.]</i>
"Manifestation of Fear, let your heroic will guide it!!"
"<b>Deep Alloy Serpent!!</b>"
<i>[Finally, its hollow eyes would light up in nothing as the being falls to the ground, letting out a distorted, out of this world roar. Anyone who gazed upon its eyes would feel the terror of death, as if their life was being taken away slowly.]</i>
"You can't even speak. Don’t worry, I’ll make it quick... if you allow yourself to lose your mind."
<i>[Clearly enjoying this power of his own, finally going all out after so long. He would stay on top of Hawk as it goes back to using its body as a shield for him. Hawk would yet again beat its wings with Heavy force, letting out its War Monger power, in order to make the enemy's mind even more vulnerable to the incoming move. Whether she becomes angrier or not, it would not matter. Serpent would begin to make strange noises, making the blades within it clash against one another before slightly opening its mouth and letting out a black gas that would fuse itself with Tortoise's previous mist. Its hollow eyes would lose all color, only the void remained, not white, and not even black, as it unleashes its Death Experience. This move forces those who are trapped within its black gas to experience their most basic, utter fears in the blink of an eye. However, it doesn't stop at merely feeling such terror, it also forces the one experiencing it to accept those feelings and become submissive, similar to the previous Chilling Finale in regards to accepting punishment and pain, but in this case, it creates an acceptance for death at the hands of their biggest fear, whatever it may be. At its best, they will end up shaking in fear, and at its worst, they will commit suicide. The power is based on how vulnerable their mind has become up until this point, and Serpent would then drop to the ground, almost like a lifeless puppet, needing the same time to rest as Tortoise.]</i>
God Complex: Out of Time
<i>[As a result of the body of fire, the ice would indeed slowly melt, turning into water as it falls slowly but surely creating a puddle under the enemy, constantly growing in size. It's important to note that the ice was slowly trying to retake its previous form once again, but the fire was intense enough to make the regeneration impossible. Kazuo would smile, realizing this being was indeed weak to psychological effects. An idea forms within his mind then, he only needed a few more moves to win. About two or three at most. First, he would be glad they had turned into a form of fire, because Deep Doremi Hawk had indeed a Strong resistance against fire damage. He considered bringing out Tiger, and although it can absorb fire around it, they really can't do much besides overwhelming attacks. At the same time, Tortoise had to remain lowkey. In the end, there was another two perfect beings to bring out, one of the which he had been preparing for a bit. First, Hawk would also fly higher and remain in a vertical position, acting as a shield for Kazuo. The attack would linger on Hawk but it wouldn't do much on its own.]</i>
<i>[Kazuo would keep silent as he releases a single blade and onto the ground, meanwhile Doppel does the same, but this one being a long one. Now, Kazuo has 5 other blades within his Stock, and Doppel goes back into him. Hawk would then continue with its Storm Caller to try and send back the fire and repel the attack, while also using its own body to shield Kazuo, who seemed to be unable to fall off the being, no matter the angle or force used. Then comes Tortoise, it would then shoot yet another projectile of plasma at the enemy. If it impacts, then all of the ice everywhere would completely evaporate, instead turning into a mist that would fill those who breath it with the need of being punished for their sins, whichever this one may be. Of course, this was based entirely on the enemy even considering they had done anything wrong in their lives, which would then trigger a need to feel pain and being punished. This was Tortoise's Chilling Finale, and as such, Tortoise would retract its guillotine-like head, four limbs and tails within its shell, unable to attack but vulnerable to all attacks. This would happen regardless of the attack working or not.]</i>
God Complex: Out of Time
<i>[Kazuo would glare at the imitation of his own Chimera as his Hawk kept beating its wings to negate the new current. He was thinking what to do at a moment like this. He knew the wind and other elements may work but physical strikes simply won't. With that in mind, he may need Tortoise to help with a ranged attack as Hawk maintains its position. Even so, he could not allow that attack to connect with him, because while Hawk may be fine, he would not be, it was obvious some kind of secondary effect would get to him. There was a safe option, and a risky one. Then again, he also knew he could probably take the risk and leave safely.]</i>
"All the pieces are right here...! I need to move them accordingly. Do Re Might!"
<i>[Kazuo would take the time wind had given him in order to absorb the vibrations all around the area, creating his Vibration Field at Level 1. Doppel would remain waiting, as the next duplication attack was not going to happen yet. Hawk would open its metallic beak and release an incredibly loud soundwave that would travel through the wind it itself creates while also making the wings beat with more power, now up to the level of Heavy damage, now being able to create cutting injuries on the enemy. The power that Storm Caller has is slow, but it would grow stronger with time, however, it cannot get past Heavy and it forces Hawk to remain in place. Other than the already active move, it would use his War Monger ability, which should normally cloud the mind of those on the receiving end, making them prone to anger and leaving them more vulnerable to attacks, an attack straight to the psyche. If the arms go through regardless of the wind, then Hawk would be pierced but will retain its position, although now obviously damaged and weaker, making the beating of the wings go down to Medium meanwhile Kazuo would stop the impact altogether and would raise his Field to Level 2. At this time, Tortoise would also move ahead to release its own attack of ice. It would open its guillotine-like jaw and charge up a small magical orb, blue in color. The orb itself would compact itself into the shape of a small sharp projectile, more plasma and gas than solid. He would release it directly at woman, Cold Injection. This move does not damage on impact, but if it hits, it's quickly going to freeze the objective, either trapping them forever or making sure they escape with some awful frostbite.]</i>
God Complex: Out of Time
<i>["So the physical world is the real deal, I've got an idea but I need to move, now!" He thinks as he feels at ease more and more by the second. His barrier could protect him from physical pain, but not so something like gas. He learnt this from fighting that one alien chick a while ago. He wouldn't even speak. Instead, he would focus his Vibration Field into one point on the ground, releasing it completely under him, creating something close to a small tremor.]</i>
"<b>Release! Imaginary 2.0 - Deep Transmigration!!</b>"
<i>[The vibrations would focus then on the blades he had summoned around him this time, making them fly and change form quickly. The long ones would become wider, the single one would shift its form and then the big one would fuse with the smaller one to form a body and a massive tail. Red markings would then come out of Kazuo's body as they focus onto the Chimera that would soon take flight. A powerful gust would form as well.]</i>
"Manifestation of Anger, rise to the skies above!"
<i>[The fusion of all the materials would slowly make a gigantic bird beatings its wings, creating Minuscule but constant Wind damage to everything around it. Its head in the shape of an X and no eyes, with a beak sharp enough to cut through diamond would open itself letting out a powerful shriek. Kazuo would then jump on the back of the bird as it tries to get away from the enemy. The wind it creates making it impossible far any type of gas to get any closer.]</i>
"Hahaha...! 2.43 - Deep Doremi Hawk!!"
<i>[Kazuo could still fight, and although he wasn't hurt, he would need to find a way to defeat them. He knew what their power was now, but even still, just throwing attacks won't work. With that in mind, Hawk would begin by calling forth it's Storm Caller, making the beating of its wings more powerful. Although the damage wouldn't be beyond Medium, it should be harsh enough to make anyone on land moving have a hard time at it. Then, considering its weight, Tortoise would stand its ground, within the same area it was after its attack. Instead, it would try to make the ground colder by using its Absolute Zero. From this Chimera, ice would quickly spread and cover the floor, making it cold enough to trap anyone that was still touching it, freezing their body at an almost cartoonish speed. Kazuo didn't want to admit it, as Doppel still flies behind him. But he was getting a bit desperate. Just brute force won’t always be enough, maybe he should’ve started with Serpent after all, the only one capable of psychological effects.]</i>
"I can still fight, I will show you what I can d-do...!!!"
God Complex: Out of Time
<i>["So that's how it goes, restraining won't do." He thinks as he immediately knows the enemy had escaped quickly. At the same time, Tortoise would allow his mouth to fall, having nothing to execute sadly.]</i>
"Guess I can't play normally. Alright then...!"
<i>[Doppel would be his eyes at the moment, but he could feel the fire wasn't doing much. He covered himself and prepared himself all the same. Sadly, this kind of impact does not translate into vibrations he could use to fight back.]</i>
"Lawful Blades, let's get this going!"
<i>[This time Kazuo, although confused, would unleash four total blades. One massive one, two very long ones and a single x-shaped one, all dropping around him with no intent of attack. At the other side of the arena, Doppel would copy the moves and release 2 more, however, their shape was different. 4 long swords in a single line. At this time, Doppel's figure would become a bit hazy, like being corrupted. It could only do one more move before going away.]</i>
"I was trying to keep you there and get time in order to properly set my creatures up, but whether this one trap worked or not, it's irrelevant. I've already caught up to speed. I can fight you head on now, dumbass."
<i>[He would be unable to move as Tortoise rushes ahead, at a great speed almost impossible for a beast its size. His body would gain spikes similar to those on a Morningstar, looking to impale the enemy. If that fails, it would make impact with Kazuo instead, but even if this happened, Kazuo's body would absorb the blow and merely be pushed back, upping his Vibration Field to Level 2.]</i>
God Complex: Out of Time
"I see, so "Words" that have power and allow you to control even reality. Which... of course means there are many words that do many different things, and by extension there is a "super" kind of word out there. Pretty interesting."
<i>[Kazuo would clap his hands together, but Doppel would not follow along, just watching forward, paying attention to what the enemy right in front of them was doing. Kazuo's body would be covered by scale-like red markings that would quickly escape his body and latch on to the blades and gears he had released previously. He knew she was distracted, and this would not take long.]</i>
"However, I don't need to bend the rules to get ahead in life, just skillfully play around them and my own limits."
"<b>IMAGINARY 2.0 - DEEP TRANSMIGRATION!!</b>"
<i>[A loud roaring noise would escape Kazuo's body as the swords and gears shift around violently, quickly creating a kind of tight dome that would trap and tightly hold his enemy in place as more and more pieces come together, melding and gain a somewhat spiky look. This melted metal would harden and get a proper shape, four limbs and a small pointy tail. To the front, a head with a beak-like mouth would form, taking away all the light the enemy, hopefully trapped within, would have. With a lack of eyes, the red markings would give the creature life as it merely lets out a shriek.]</i>
"Manifestation of Punishment, let them shiver!!"
"<b>2.13 - Deep Guillotine Tortoise!!</b>"
<i>[The floor under it would begin to be covered by ice, and near it the temperature would drop as well, more and more for anyone other than Kazuo that is. Within it, it would not stop dropping. Trapped within, the enemy would find themselves unable to move and have their head and neck forced towards the throat of the Tortoise. The very same one would open its mouth and reveal a sharp, ice cold upper guillotine-like blade, going up more by the second.]</i>
"Say hello to Genbu. It's called Guillotine for a reason. Even if the strike doesn't kill you, you won't ever be able to move, or you may actually be able to freeze to death or enough so I can crush your body. Whatever the case, I'm still ready to go. Do Re Might!"
<i>[Kazuo's body would be covered by a white aura as it absorb the vibration the mere presence the creature creates, making his body resistant to any blow or physical contact that may come to it. Nothing can get through his shield, but at the same time, he cannot move while it's active.]</i>
God Complex: Out of Time
<i>[Kazuo was about to reply as he felt something being deleted completely from existence. What kind of place was this...? Could it have been one of those gods? It may have been that. Could it be that it was about to happen to him? He would shake his head as the transparent apparition of a woman with a featureless face, yellow eyes, long black hair and wearing serpent-like armor comes out of Kazuo's body.]</i>
"If it doesn't matter at all, then let me show you my valor at least, as a servant."
<i>[Kazou would throw a punch, unleashing a single void vortex that would shoot out gears and metal pieces out of it at incredible speed, all crashing possibly right in front of the woman. Soon after, Doppel would do the same, and whether it hits or not, it's up in the air. It was aimed a bit further up compared to the last one. Kazuo always needed to aim it, and with a lack of spacial awareness, this was difficult.]</i>
"Don't take any ill will, it's not like I can kill you anyways. You said soon, and you did say you may consider it. I'm trying to give you reasons to be sure of it, while I still have the time."
<i>[Kazuo would drop to his knees again, still with both eyes closed, and Doppel would follow too.]</i>
"So... Proteans are shapeshifters...? Were you human once too, or am I wrong? I don't know anything. I would rather know what I'm getting into. Are your powers a result of some...divine source?"
Tokyo's Central Metropolitan Library
<i>[There is a massive public library somewhere around the neighboring ward of of Shibuya, Minato. Kazuo had spent his evening there, studying all types of books. He had been researching mythology and urban legends saved in written form. Even if those were fictional, that which seemed to be fantasy could also come into reality or be based in something bigger. As such, he liked looking into it. However, at the moment he seemed to have shifted into romance novels.]</i>
"These writers...none of this dialogue seems realistic somehow. Who even says this kind of stuff...?"
<i>[He couldn't understand. He wanted some more insight into "love" and romance, but this wasn't doing it for him.]</i>
"Maybe... if I tried looking into the science of it...?"
<i>[He would keep reading another "romance" novel, something about a princess and a bride.]</i>
"...This one is weird, but the dialogue is fantastic."
Shibuya: [Kosei High School]
<spoiler>Unlike most other casual threads, this one is supposed to, hopefully, remain open constantly for whoever wants to use it, instead of making an individual thread each time. Your character may be a student, they may be a teacher or part of the staff in general, or maybe some guy who somehow got in while NPCs don't really bother to stop you. Whatever the case, here's a setting. Considering there's so many High Schoolers running around, this may work. So feel free to use it.</spoiler>
<b>Hidden among the many skyscrapers, streets and parks, maybe even the convenience stores, there is a beautiful building of three floors and painted in white. The front yard is ample and surrounded by giant trees with benches underneath, as well as neat paths taking the rest of the park-like area around the main building, popular spots for students who want to relax in the school ground when the weather is on their side. From here, it is easy to reach the main entrance into the main building, where all the classrooms are placed.
The first floor is about what one would expect from a traditional high school; leading to the backyard and having at least three different classrooms on each side of the building, all belonging to first years; the walls looking to the backyard all with windows that allow for a better view back. There’s also a single Store offering snacks, drinks and lunch for those who can afford it, and get there in time for it. Finally, the Nurse’s Office is in this floor, as well as the Principal’s Office.
The second floor is more of the same, this time for second year students. Besides that, the Teacher’s Lounge is located here, right in front of the Student Council Room.
Then, the third floor, belonging to those going through their third and final year of high school. The library is located in this floor, being quite massive for all those students that would rather read, study, or keep a low profile in silence.
Finally, the rooftop. Not many go there, but those who would rather be alone with no one else looking. It’s popular with lovers and close friends.
The backyard is quite spacious, similar to the front yard leading to two places: The Gym Building and the Practice Building. The first one is merely a gym, meanwhile the second one is centered around the activities and school clubs students themselves form. There are many different clubs in it, so much so anyone could probably make one up if they wanted to.</b>
Somewhere in Tokyo Bay: A lack of clarity.
<i>[It was cloudy and somewhat cold. Although there was no longer any snow, but the air was still cold. The sky was completely grey, and it seemed like it could rain at any time, even if such event did not seem possible any time soon. At least, that's what he believed. Kazuo was looking out to the sea, thoughtful in this calm Seaside park somewhere in Shinagawa. He had Asami in his mind, as well as Apollo, Sen, especially his own life up until this point.]</i>
You really won't tell me anything, huh? I know that I have to find the answers on my own, but some extra help would be nice, you know...?
<i>[Kazuo says to no one present at the time. Looking out into the distance as if it was the abyss itself. If he gets too bored, at least he has space to walk around or go back to the ice-skating place. Something was still better than nothing.]</i>
Kosei High School: [SCHOOL FESTIVAL]
<i>[For once, Kazuo was walking around an entirely normal neighborhood without his hat or coat. Instead, he was wearing the school’s uniform properly. Today, his school was doing he didn't particularly enjoy: A school festival, and anyone and everyone was invited to join in. The first floor's classrooms were centered around all types of food, from sushi, to ramen and even BBQ. Meanwhile, the second floor was focused on different types of events, like some kind of cheap haunted house deal, a date cafe; which he thought was quite horrible; and the signups for the events at the courtyard. Those being a talent show, a music show and even more food stands. Finally, the rooftop was open for anyone who wanted to use it, but really, it was probably going to be filled by those already dating. Kazuo didn't mind any of these, but he didn't want to stay at home all day either. If anything, the people walking around were interesting.]</i>
