DISCLAIMER: DRAGON EYE BELONGS TO KAIRI FUJIYAMA. I OWN KASUMI AND MY SISTER OWNS ISAMU.
I have had Kasumi now since 2006, so it's been a while. She is the one I made for Dragon Eye. If some things seem too unreal then I strongly suggest re-reading the series. I know Tsukiko seems a little fake, but he's such a cutie, I could not bear to cut him out. (:
Mankind is nothing more than a word to describe a crucifying incompetent species. It is safe to say that sooner or later all of the ones that are lucky enough to still be alive will learn a lesson or get devoured by the flesh-eating mutants. The world was coming to an end and it was already laid into ruins.
As a child, I was born with fully black eyes and black hair. My parents were incredibly superstitious and believed that I was a 'demon child'. Of course, none of that was true. Every day I studied until my brain was too full of information. I strived to do the best in school that I could in hopes that I could graduate earlier and just get out away from everybody. Unfortunately, it was much more complicated than just getting good grades and moving on to the next one. Just shut your eyes and imagine being in a school with over 500 kids and no one mentions a word to you. Ever. Everyone just whispers when you walk by or gets afraid that you will throw a 'hex' on them. I hate people. I always have and always will.
A most horrendous virus began to spread which turned animals and humans alike into blood-inducing fiends. One touch of blood and that is the only thing needed to transform you into one too. It was these fiends that destroyed my city and annihilated everyone I once knew (but not so much loved).
The only possession of mine that I carried around was my royal blue duchess scythe. It was handed to me from my grandfather, the only relative to truly care for me. My real family was spoiled rich, but they left me to rot outside in a doghouse. I got whatever money it was that I wanted as long as I did not mention a word. With that money I took various things such as archery, fencing, martial arts and free running. There was dance as well but I did not care too much for it. At least all the instructors were not as cruel to me. Then again, it was in a city right outside of our small town so perhaps they were more used to people like me. Aside from all these I did enjoy going to the library and picked up some English and French . There were a few phrases I picked up from others, but that does not make one fluent.
Instead of flipping from topic to topic, I will say where perhaps the biggest change of my life occurred. This one was agonizing. M y grandfather passed away a week earlier and I went to put some orchids on his grave. The wind was still and I could hardly hear any movement. It worked for me seeming as silence was one of my best friends as well as greatest enemies. At the time of glancing upon my grandfather's tombstone, I would much rather face the silence. It was hard enough seeing his name etched into the stone showing when he lived and when he died.
I scuffled back to my town to see that the place had burst out in flames and everything was in ruins. There was obviously a darakuru attack, but they would not have fled that easily. That is when I found out that the VIUS Mikuni warriors had come through and destroyed them. At least my most memorable relative got to sleep peacefully through the attack and not become one of those monsters. When you consider a dog-house your home, it is pretty pathetic. What is more depressing though is having no place to call your home. For that night, I sat on the ashes of what was once my house and mourned.
The next morning I awoke to a strange crow staring me in the eye. It tilted it's head to the side, and so I copied it. What startled me the most was as soon as I mocked him, he began to flap his wings and caw as if he were singing to me in tones of joy. Weird. What was more strange was that I could understand him. He was calling me his new owner which confused me even more. As it turns out, he had a witch as an owner who sacrificed her life for his immortality. A crow with immortality? What a stupid human being to do such a thing. The crow's name was Tsukiko, meaning 'Child of the Moon'. Apparently the crow was to latch on to the next uninfected being it found – me.
I followed Tsukiko down a long path for what appeared to be five hours. He was taking me to Mikuni city because he overheard that the VIUS entrance exams were taking place and I suppose he thought of me as the type to do it. I had nowhere to sleep, nowhere to eat, nowhere to do anything so of course I said yes. My only worry was that I was unsure just a scythe would be good enough to get me through it. Also, I read that once you are inducted into the VIUS, they treat you as if you were their own. The VIUS is a place that operates missions for the destruction of the darakuru. The VIUS warriors are, of course, the people that annihilate them by using tactics. They undergo poison resistance training using some mask, they go through superior weapon wielding classes and aside from that you get placed into different squads. Some worked as an intelligence agency, some worked as a medical unit and some were just the all-out fighting units. The only thing I could hope for now is some socialization and perhaps someone that knew some decent skateboarding parks. I was in great need for a shred on the pipes.
I lifted my eyes up to see a huge building hovering over me. There it was in front of my very eyes- the VIUS Headquarters of Mikuni City.
