[ Introduction ]

There are dark corners in the world that no human likes to acknowledge. Shadows that move past the corner of eyesight and mysterious sounds that go bump in the night are all just small manifestations to the truth that has plagued humankind since the beginning. There are demons among us. In ancient times past these creatures from the other plane plagued humanity with dark intent and a lust for more power. Seen as inferior, humans were hunted down and consumed until the mere mention of these creatures sparked stories to tell children in the dark.

That was before humanity struck back and the first Devil Hunters arrived. Those few brave humans risked life and honor in the eternal quest of vanquishing those of the supernatural who would dare to prey on humans. Grown in strength and number, it wasn’t long before the demons were forced back and the world was safe to prosper again. But the Devil Hunters remained, always tasked with punishing those malicious spirits who would breech the human world with evil deeds.

That was then, and this is now. In the current day, human society remains unaware of the dark truth of their history, their tales passed down and labeled into legend. There are still demons for where there is light, there is always darkness. The once small group of Devil Hunters have since expanded worldwide into an organization bent on protecting humanity from the very shadows the demons inhabit. The DHA, or Devil Hunter Agency, sees fit to maintain the safeguard of humans at all costs; but there is trouble brewing in those very same shadows.

In the Japanese branch of the DHA, a sudden influx of malicious beings, or Youkai, are stirring up. Perhaps it’s just an anomaly of the world, or perhaps it yields the foreshadowing of something greater set in motion. Rumors of a powerful Youkai group surfacing have been passed down from whispers and worry. To what end does truth lie in such rumors? Nobody knows. All that is known, the sole truth of the world, is the simple creed of the DHA.


[ Setting ]
Although the DHA encompasses protection worldwide, there are strange events happening near the Japanese branch. People are disappearing off the streets in the dark of night. Urban legends once meant as scary stories are reportedly becoming real. There's a sense of rising paranoia growing in the air from human to human. Located in Siracha City, it's there where players will go about their Devil Hunter tasks in discovering the truth of the matter. Likewise, as a demon player, it will be their task to antagonize and act as opposing forces to Devil Hunter players. To what end is their goal and motive, only they know entirely. Thus begins a drastic game of cat and mouse between man and devil as something more is unearthed.

[ Classes and Devils ]

Under cover of darkness and just beyond our gazes lies the world of Devil Hunters and those slain by them. As far as human knowledge goes, there are only two brands of being to exist in the world; humans and the supernatural. While humanity has since armed defense against such threats, those shrouded in darkness are by no means fragile or vulnerable. Listed are the core essentials of this world we live in.

Kazemitsu The Dragon

Member Seen 18 hrs ago

• Appearance:
His picture doesn't show that he's rather tall, standing at six foot six.
• Name: Kazemitsu Rin, Kaze for short
• Title: N/A
• Age: 29
• Division: American Branch
• Class/Species: Devil Feeder.

• Abilities:
  • Demonic Strength: His strength, which was already high naturally, is multiplied a couple times over passively. When he actively channels demonic energy he's even stronger than that by several times. Over in his previous branch he was one of the physically strongest members.
  • Reptilian Reflexes: His reflexes, like his strength, are multiplied to animalistic degrees. But just because he can see the attack coming doesn't mean he has the speed to dodge it. An example, he can see a jab coming from a boxer and dodge it or block it. He can also see arrows and slow moving bullets but he can't dodge them.
  • Regeneration: Channeling his demon allows him to regenerate from damage. The lesser the wound the faster it goes, more severe wounds take longer. He can't grow back limbs or live through decapitation.
  • Transformation: He is able to transform some of his body parts to that of his demon. Sharp claws on his hands or feet, wings, a tail, black scales and purple torso plates. Each transformation adds a benefit to offense, defense, or his ability to dodge or move.
  • Free-style: He mixes and matches various martial arts to fit his purposes. He's not master but he knows enough to cause serious damage. Powerful on its own, but including demonic attributes makes it far more lethal than it should be.
  • Acidic Breath: The demon he's contracted with has an acidic breath attack that is rather potent. It can come in a glob, stream, and gaseous form with limited range.

• Personality:
Kaze is an incredibly angry, read rage-filled, man. Especially in combat, but thankfully it's channeled to the demons and devils out there instead of at his fellow man. This combined with his headstrong nature tends to land him in hot water. His strength has made him cocky, but if he gets knocked down a more cautious and animalistic nature takes over. Instead of rushing in blindly again he stalks and tests his enemy.

Outside of a fight he's much more calm, but still headstrong. He tends to keep to himself, preferring solitude over groups of people. A natural recluse. If someone can get through his shell he's a bit better about being the 'lone wolf' and he's more protective of that person. Although he is also sometimes a bit of a downer, what with not being able to enjoy worldly pleasures thanks to his contract. Kinda sucks, but there's a price for everything.

• Background:
Kaze's ancestors were naturally born in Japan, his father had moved to North America, married a local woman, and Kaze was born. Huzzah! Which is why he has a Japanese name by the way. Kaze had a fairly average childhood, nothing to really put him in the spotlight aside from excelling in sports. It wasn't until he hit puberty that things drastically changed and not for the better. His thirteenth birthday was not a happy day, strange creatures appeared as if from nowhere and slaughtered his immediate family and some that had flown in from Japan.

Why didn't Kaze die? He had a benefactor that day. A demon who liked humans, what could be described as a dragon, had swooped in and pulped some of the assaulting demons. Terrifying them and making the other demons flee. The boy was obviously distraught, ripe for making a contract with. The demon possessed Kaze's mothers ring, the kids eyes turned ice blue, his hair lost all color, and his skin darkened as if he stayed out in the sun all the time. The reptilian demon helping shape the boy physically as he grew, strengthening him, making his reflexes better, his body tougher.

Obviously no parents meant he was put into foster care, his grandparents were simply to old to take him in. The only thing he kept from home was his fathers dog tags from his military days and his mothers wedding band. They helped balance emotionally and mentally him despite the trauma and the wisdom filled words of the demon bouncing about in his head.

Once he was of age, eighteen, he left the foster system, his current foster parents, and went out to start actively hunting. He had a list of those that had slaughtered his family, any other demon that got in his way met with a rather gruesome fate. In one of his battles he was discovered by the Devil Hunter's Association. He had been doing their job unknowingly and was invited to become a recruit. He obviously joined with the stipulation that they helped him hunt down the described creatures on his hit list. Needless to say he has been at it for a good while and is often sent out to other branches that require heavy hitters.

• Inventory:
  • Dog Tags: His fathers dog tags, an important memento that keeps him more balanced mentally.
  • Mothers Wedding Ring: His mothers ring, its kept on his pinky finger and helps keep him emotionally balanced. The demon resides within this ring as well, giving the diamonds a red hue.
  • Titanium Knuckle Dusters: Not all opponents are supernatural, and packing more damage never hurts. Best to be prepared!
  • The List: A yellowed piece of paper with a list of creature descriptions. Of the dozen only three are crossed out in various colors of blood.

Any noteworthy possession that your character may have should be placed here. Commonplace mundane items, like a phone, a car, etc., don't need to be listed; only items of relevance to your character on hand. If you don't have any, you don't need to add this.

• Other: When his rage is unleashed his body gets covered in a red and black miasma while his eyes are like icy blue flames. It's pretty rare for this to happen though.

I've clarified in the first post that demons contract to items for Devil Feeders. This is how they communicate to humans.

Are there Devil Bringers and Devil Feeders that are not aligned with the DHA? That is to say, can youkai and Devil Bringers/Feeders team up to do evil plans together?

Generally I'd like the villains to remain Youkai for now unless you can make a strong case to me that they'd be a Bringer or Feeder.

Hmm was considering a misanthropic evil sorcerer-type dude who likes demons more than humans and desires to turn himself into a demon : ) If that doesn’t work I’m also considering a full demon too.

Hmm how do other Devils usually feel about Feeders? I understand they have contracts with Devils but necessarily needing to eat their flesh might strain their relationship a bit. On the other hand Devils often feel the same way about humans so maybe they understand each other better.

What sorta abilities do Devils usually have, Windel? Are they usually just superhumanly strong with one vanilla ability (elemental control/telekinesis)? Or are they defined by their ability? Or do they have a host of abilities?

Also, anything that's particular taboo, such as, idk, mind control or zombie infection stuff?

Most demons are selfish enough to not really care if their own kind are eaten. To them it's a view of power so it's more akin to as you said. They eat humans so it's just nature humans would eat them in their mind. Keep in mind you're not eating the demon you're contracted to but the ones you hunt. Unless that's the kind of relationship you're in with your demon.

Pretty much that first part. Usually they have one singular main ability they focus on; but in contrast, they have complete mastery and control of said ability. It can be used for a wide variety of applications so go nuts on what that one ability is.

Also, anything that's particular taboo, such as, idk, mind control or zombie infection stuff?


Mind control is probably taboo given the OOC nature of having to deal with that but anything else should be fine depending on how it's worded and applied. It's case by case basis.

Ahhh might end up being a good guy then~ Thought about it and really wanna be a demon summoner type so think I’ll be a Devil Feeder or maybe Devil Bringer~ I’ll figure it out~

How weapony do devil bringer weapons have to be? Does it need to be a sword or gun or something or can it be more of an “equipment” thing like roller skates or a drill or a computer or a shovel?

The crazier something is, the more likely the DHA will frown on it. They're already stingy with guns; as long as it makes sense.

So their abilities are hereditary, ye? You have clans of fire-breathers and water-walkers, and there's nothing ghost-like about them, due to being flesh-and-blood beings in the end?
