The Emperor and the Bet (OPEN TO ANYONE)

Post by Azalea on Sat Jul 15, 2017 11:14 pm

Eleven hours before

"I'm bored," Nocens declared loudly, crossing her arms below her chest. She had reverted to her original form, though her tails were retracted into her body. Her single eye, the left, looked out across her throne room. Her four Generals were assembled before her, each one in a different posture that spoke volumes about their character.

"You called us all down here for that?" War asked. Beside War, Famine nodded their head. Famine added, "Nocens, you have a whole dimension you're supposed to be running; we've had to stop that just to attend this meeting!"

Nocens shrugged her narrow shoulders. "I can't help it. There's only so much I can do here. It's not like I can just stroll through Hell's circles without getting into fights, which ends up being a one-sided slaughter. Humans, Hollows, Arrancar... They're all so weak! I want something new to fight, guys," she whined.

Pestilence shook their head. "Only those who lived in sin can come to Hell, Nocens. You know this. The only ones who can't do that are those who aren't 'alive' in the first place. Those in Soul Society will never enter Hell, as you're well aware. There's nothing you can do about that."

Nocens cocked her head to the side before waving her hand to dismiss the four Horsemen. "Soul Society...
What is that like, I wonder...
"

Now

Nocens stared upwards. Her single eye took in the sight of the Shinigami Academy. She wore poor-fitting clothes that were very baggy, a pair of silky pants and a equally fine shirt that hung to her knees. The pants were rolled as much as possible, but she still was stepping on the fabric. The man from who she had liberated the clothes from had been very tall, and very overweight. Nocens, her body only the size of a thirteen year old girl, was practically swimming in his clothes.

The Emperor had her spiritual power completely suppressed. None of her hellish qualities were exposed currently, other than her red and yellow left eye and completely empty right eye socket. Her gray skin stood out, but she could just claim to have been poor and dirty.

Hours before, she had told Death her plan to go into Soul Society looking for a fight. Death, of course, thought it was impossible for her to even get close to the Shinigami who lived there. Nocens was confident though; she was the Emperor of Hell, there was nothing she couldn't do! And so, she had sought out the invisible holes in Hell and used trial and error until one spat her out into Soul Society. She knew her spiritual pressure would give her away as a Togabito, so she had to suppress it. And, with a little bit of asking around after stealing clothes, she found out the Shinigami could be found by completing the Shinigami Academy's curriculum.

"It can't be that hard... An academy is just a school, and I taught at one... On occasion," she thought out loud. She wasn't really sure what exactly to do, however. The Emperor in disguise stood outside the school, a look of confusion in her singular eye.

Hanzō arched his back, sitting behind a long reception desk. He wore his normal uniform, the standard Shihakushō in addition to his unique mask and helmet. Under the outermost layer of his Shihakushō, metal bands wrapped around his ribs and shoulders. Beside him, several other unseated Shinigami sat at intervals, while potential applicants stood across from them on the other side of the desk. Hanzō'd spent all morning sitting here, testing the spiritual level of applicants. Once or twice, he'd felt latent powers that surpassed himself in strength, and more than once had to turn people away because they didn't have enough spiritual energy.

After waving through the last person in his line, Hanzō stretched and stood up. "I'm going out for a smoke," he said to nobody in particular. Hanzō circled around the table, going out through the main entrance. It was rather empty on the street, save for one kid who seemed to just be taking in the sights.

Hanzō leaned against the front wall of the Academy, not actually smoking. Even if it was just a kid, he didn't want to take his mask off. He'd just wait to see if she went away.

Nocens continued looking at the strange building until she noticed someone had walked out and was leaning against the building. They wore black robes and a helmet, which piqued her interest. She knew that these Shinigami she sought wore those robes.

"Hello," Nocens called out, waving one arm as she approached the man. "Is this where I go to fight the Shinigamis?
I was told they dress like you.
"

Her sole eye took in the masculine figure and strange helmet, the height and approximate weight. If he was the example of a Shinigami, this fight would be quite boring indeed.

Hanzō rolled his eyes before turning his attention to the small girl. He couldn't feel any spiritual pressure coming from her at all, which meant she probably didn't have any. In all likelihood, talking to her would be a waste of his time, but he should explain just to get rid of the kid.

"Alright, kid. First, Shinigami don't fight each other, let alone non-Shinigami Souls. This Academy is meant for training new Shinigami, not letting people beat on one another. Secondly, the only way you'd fight a Shinigami is if you were going to challenge them for their position, like fighting a Captain to gain their position. And to do that, you'd need a Zanpakuto,
or an Asauchi like this,
" Hanzō said as he pointed out the sword on his hip. "It's the most basic type of Zanpakuto that all Shinigami Academy students are given. You'd need one of these to challenge a Shinigami to a fight." Despite the helmet covering his face, his voice came out clearly.

Nocens nodded as she processed the information given to her. So, the only way to fight the Shinigami was to use one of their swords... As the pieces fell into place in her mind, her eye shone brightly with understanding. Using her full speed, Nocens slammed the heel of her palm into the man's stomach simultaneously drew the sword from his sheathe. Though she would have been moving faster than the normal eye could see, she only used enough force behind the palm strike to cause a person to double-over, without seriously injuring them. To the untrained eye, it would appear as if the sword materialized in her hand.

Holding the Asauchi loosely in her right hand, Nocens giggled girlishly. "Well, now I have an Asauchi, so I can fight you all! Thank you so much for clarifying that," she said in a sing-song voice, moving towards the entrance of the building at a casual walking speed.

Hanzō had no idea what had happened. One moment he'd been talking, the next he was doubled over and his stomach was hurting. Straightening up, he went to reach for his sword only to find it missing. The, the child had it! And she thought she was just going to fight the Gotei with it?

"Hey, wait you! You can't go in there, and you can't just take that," He said, reaching out for his Zanpakuto, but knowing this child was absurdly fast despite appearances. How he wished he'd paid more attention during the Bakudo lessons; he'd have been able to use Kido to restrain her. But, of course, he had just barely passed through the Academy. Raising his voice, hoping someone in the next room would hear, he said "Hey, somebody stop this kid!"

From around another corner, Itsuya simply poked her head around the corner, attracted by the commotion. He held a large novel in her left hand as she calmly tried to assess the situation with her tired eyes. She WOULD held, but that sounded like too much work. She felt as if this would be entertaining, so she remained with her head peeping around the corner.

Nocens skipped farther out of the strange man's reach, waving the sword at him, holding the blade easily in her palm. It was heavy, she realized. Real swords were much heavier than ones made from her own powers. But, extra weight means extra force behind her swings, which meant more damage. She wondered, as she stopped just outside the door, if all Shinigami were used to such heavy swords.

When she was outside the door, her single eye noticed the table inside, the people standing on one side of the long table, the Shinigami sitting on the other side. She saw the little balls of light that were raw spiritual energy manifested by the standing people. She saw people moving, so slowly, to look at the doorway, lured by the man's cry for assistance. She had forgotten how slow most people were; perhaps they needed encouragement?

Facing the doorway, Nocens drew herself into a sword stance, one meant for her unique fighting style. She stood sideways, sword hand held at her mid-chest, the blade pointing straight, in this case directly at the table of people. Her other hand was held at her hip, fingers closed around air. An observant person might notice that her grip on the air mimicked that of a person holding a sword, as if she was used to using two blades instead of one. Nocens grinned a toothy smile into the room full of Shinigami and others.

"You heard the man, stop this 'kid,'" she shouted. In her mind, she sounded strong and arrogant. In reality, her voice was high and youthful, not conveying any of her thousands of years of experience in battle. Despite herself, Nocens oft forgot that on the outside, her true form was actually that of what was now considered a child. But in her mind, she would always be a larger than life warrior, a leader of people who conquered lands and ways of life before there was any form of writing to describe her exploits.

Hanzō stopped short some feet away from the child, his hands up, palms towards her. He wasn't keen on getting stabbed by his own sword, even if he hadn't bonded with it at all yet. His gaze was focused on the girl as she waved the sword around, probably thinking this all some great big game from the way she held herself. She couldn't possibly think she could actually fight fully trained Shinigami, right?

Itsuya was able to tell there was aggressive intention from her spot around the corner, but nothing more. She shifted her ever-tired glance to Hanzō, seeing him raise his palms towards her. 'Whats going on..? , 'Is it a fight, maybe?' -- These thoughts and questions rang throughout her mind as if they were a song too loud through a pair of headphones.

Nocens turned her eye from the man she took the sword from, back into the room with all the people. Though plenty of people were staring at her, nobody was doing anything... That had to change. How could people just stare at someone pointing a sword at them?

Nocens, renown for her sheer speed in Hell, dashed into the room, swinging her stolen sword in a wide, high slash, and leaped back, dropping back into her fighting stance before the people, citizens of the Rukongai, even realized they'd been decapitated. In that instant, she'd cleaved the heads off three people and returned to her starting position, frowning. Everyone was so damned slow here, they couldn't even die quickly, she thought. After a moment, her victims fell to the ground, heads rolling away as blood gushed from their neck stubs. To the untrained, it appeared as if they had simply fallen apart suddenly without cause, except for the bloody sword that Nocens carried.

"Come on," she called, pausing briefly to think. "Or Azalea's gonna dice you all up!" She smirked at the end, but not because of the threat. She liked the modern-day translation of her ancient name from when she was alive, though this translation wasn't exactly accurate. She wasn't a florist, after all.

He didn't see her move. He couldn't feel any spiritual pressure coming from the child. But his sensitive ears heard the sound of bodies hitting the floor, even if he couldn't see them. But he could see the blood that suddenly appeared on the blade, and his brain connected the dots quickly. He figured, based on her posture and threat, that Azalea must be her name, and she was extremely confident in her ability to kill, it seemed.

Not seeing a way he could take the sword back without getting himself hurt, or worse, Hanzō let his Spiritual Pressure rise in the manner they'd been taught at the Academy; it'd let others nearby know there was a threat and they could come help by tracking his Spirit Pressure.

Some distance away, a pair of sensitive ears flicked.

Was that...spiritual energy being released? He settled on his haunches, assessing the flavor: Not Captain level by the feel of it, but certainly...erratic. Energetic? It had the sense of raw power, but none of the inner focus behind it. A smokescreen then? He was familiar with such things, having made use of it himself on occasion. And from the way all that power was being blasted about, it was either a distraction or a signal for help.

Both equally undesirable, to his knowledge.

Shiroki sighed, half-reached for his uniform but then thought better of it. Sometimes it could give people the wrong impression. Better if they thought he was a nobody than someone important. He did prepare a kido communication to the rest of his unit and a delayed message to his Captain however. No point in cutting corners, even if it was a false alarm.

Adjusting the cloth to seat more comfortably at his neck, he took a moment to orient himself with the reishii ribbons on stepping outside. It was always harder when he didn't have scent to work with, but the beacon of power from before had been distinct enough; clearly a signal that wanted to be found. Locking onto his target, Shiroki gave chase--settling into a practiced rhythm of Shunpo that took him across the rooftops via an indirect route that would not allow him to be seen. After all, Seretei wouldn't be Seretei without some form of cosmic crisis going on at some point...after that blessed season of peace this probably meant they were overdue.

Or maybe he was over-reacting and this would turn out to be nothing more than a fight between two of the 11th squad--

Oh yes; and maybe Hueco Mundo would collapse, peace everlasting be made between Shinigami and Quincy, and all Captains would link hands to sing Kumbaya. While he was dreaming, better dream big, right?

Off in the distance, the sudden surge of spiritual pressure that had gotten his attention suddenly flickered and guttered to a halt. That didn't have to mean anybody was dead, however. They could have run out of reiatsu, or otherwise become unable to sustain the release, or occupied with other things entirely. Or maybe the threat was gone and there was no use for a signal any longer.

For some reason though, he could imagine Inukaze laughing in his head. "They're dead," she informed him gleefully. "They're dead and you know it. Nothing to be done but go and make whoever killed them dead too,"

Shiroki sighed; then sighed again as his nose began to detect the telltale scent of freshly spilled blood nearby.

"If I survive this, I'm thinking of asking the Captain for a raise,"

Wonder of wonders, Inukaze did not disagree.

Re: The Emperor and the Bet (OPEN TO ANYONE)

Post by Sabiruchi Tsuyosa on Wed Sep 06, 2017 9:57 pm

Captain Tsuyosa looked around. The bell attached to the thin black choker around her neck chimed as she tried to understand what she was feeling. A distress call coming from the Academy? The rise and fall of Spiritual Pressure was pathetically weak, but definitely in the standardized signal of an Academy graduate in trouble.

She was standing in the street, dressed in a modified uniform that resembled a hoodie and skirt, coin purse in hand as she was trying to get a reasonable price on a suit for her fiance. The man simply had no clue how to shop, or dress, and she'd be damned if she let him show up to their wedding wearing grease and beer stained shirts and sweatpants. He'd dressed nicely on their first date, was it really so much to ask that he put some effort in for their wedding?

Putting the entire purse in the store owner's hands, Sabre started to head towards the Academy, letting her flash-step take her there as quickly as possible. The tail Lanying had following her could catch up. It's not like she needed to be babysat, after all. Lanying could kiss the whitest part of my ass if she had a problem with me checking out the disturbance. So what if Sabre was banned from the Academy by the Commander's orders?

Itsuya laid back on a wall of the Ceireitei, nothing close to a care in the world clouded her mind. She hummed happily, in her own solitude of...a rooftop? Seriously? She rubbed her fingers along the hilt of her Zanpakuto. Aside from these physical motions, her mind was at work as if it were a hive of bee's. She pondered `Who was that woman back there? I dunno...but she was rather scary... And good looking too.

Nocens looked around. "What do you think you're doing over there?" She asked the man in the funny helmet. She didn't know the specifics, but she could feel him doing something.

Nocens turned, pointing the sword at the big man. "Is that some of that... Keyed does things. Well, stop it, or Azalea's going to make you stop!"

Nocens flicked her wrist quickly, letting the tip of the sword dance across his clothing at the wrists and shoulders, cutting it apart.

Hanzo flinched, the front of his uniform being cut apart before he could blink. He froze instantly, his spiritual pressure freezing in place as well. Hanzo wondered what he should do? He felt something sliding down his spine... Was that a cold sweat? A surge of fear raced through his veins. He had no idea what to do; he wasn't strong enough, or fast enough, or knew enough...

He sensed the unmistakable flavor of a Captain's reiatsu almost immediately, and had it narrowed down at an afterthought.

Metal, hide and rust; somehow overlaid with an endless expanse of featureless white: it could be none other than Captain Sabi on the scene. People were always surprised at how he was able to identify others via reiatsu, but the Captain making no effort to hide her spiritual trace made it easier on this occasion than it should have been. Not that it came as much as a surprise; clearly Sabre had come to the same conclusion he had and decided that whatever looming threat they faced would be better served with a direct confrontation of force to intimidate it rather than a hidden blade in the shadows. He had been considering stepping in actually, and might have done so if not for the Captain's timely appearance on scene.

Well, better her than him.

Where one Captain was, there would be more. And if it was Sabre; he could surely count on the Commander's agents getting involved sooner or later. Which meant that the Commander would be here soon to yank their skins from the fire.

Thinking along these lines made him feel slightly better about their chances.

Reluctantly abandoning notions of escape, Shiroki sped up his pace to follow the Captain en route to the scene; automatically registering the layout of buildings they were passing for terrain advantages and opportunities along the way.

He caught up with her when she paused for a moment upon a rooftop briefly before resuming the hunt.

"Orders, Captain Sabi...I mean, Captain Tsuyosa?"

Oops. He really should've guarded against that slip of tongue. As he waited in baited breath for the full volleys of Captain Sabi...er, Tsuyosa's wrath; all he could think about was how
A) he wasn't wearing his upper uniform or footwear
B) he had left his officer's badge behind (again)
and C) it had been some time since he remembered to brush his fur.

The way things were going, he wouldn't be surprised if he owed her Division some paperwork that had slipped his mind as well. The look he could clearly imagine her sending him proved enough to make Shiro wonder if it would be better to take his chances fighting whatever cosmic horror was down there himself and dying in the process.

Suddenly, joining forces with a Captain didn't seem like such a good idea after all.

Captain Tsuyosa moved in what to her was a relaxed, comfortable posture, even during flash-step. To anyone, though, she would look stiff and straight backed as she reached inside her parka and pulled a short blade out. The Spiritual pressure went still at the Academy; whoever it was, they were in danger. Normal procedure stated that she should observe the situation, and meet the threat with an equal force until it was eliminated. But, she was feeling tense. She felt a little paperwork and a slight reprimand from the Commander would be worth it to stretch her muscles in combat. Eliminate the foe with a show of complete power; that was how a Tsuyosa would do things. No need to drag things on like a fool.

She was surprised when Lieutenant Shiroki appeared beside her, though it didn't show on her face. As they moved, only a block from the Academy now, she glanced sideways at him. "Shiroki... It must be your day off if you're out of uniform. I know you wouldn't be working like that,
after all, right, Lieutenant?
" Her voice was cold and hard, but there was a faint glimmer of humor in her eyes as she looked at the young Werewolf.

Itsuya grew tiresome of reading, sitting up with the shingles banging against each other. She let out a lengthy yawn.

She blinked, seeing Captain Tsuyosa and Lieutenant Shiroki- No, not that. He was a werewolf, a dirty, rotten , werewolf. The sight of his bristly, tangled fur disgusted her, aside from him being a werewolf, he just looked hideous. Her thoughts clouded over with the absolute despise she had for this species... Dirty dogs.

She stood, starting to run alongside them, but a distance away. She made sure to cloak her spiritual pressure, her scowling, knowing she would be challenging this mutt.

Nocens didn't want to kill the helmeted man. She wanted a fight and the man had no sword. Shinigami fought with swords. He couldn't fight. He was useless.

With her speed, Nocens slammed the flat of the sword into his chest, putting her weight into the attack to hit with two tons of pressure.

If he was knocked away, good. Either way, she let her own spiritual spike, carefully filtered so it was only raw power, without the taint of her Togabito nature. Pure spiritual pressure, only, if only for an instant, released outwards from her body before sealed away again.

Hanzo fell backwards, his helmet cracking against the wall. He was dazed, but not knocked out as his head smacked around inside his helmet. As he slumped, he felt the overwhelming spiritual pressure of the child, felt its enormity, the emptiness of it that couldn't be tied to anyone or anything he knew about. It drove him into the ground, his helmet splitting under its weight due to the crack in it. His tanned face looked up, dazed and afraid, his large fennec fox ears drooping flat against his head. He couldn't get up, he wouldn't!

''Minor shunko accident, Captain,'' inwardly Shiroki could not help but wince at the obvious falsehood. Seriously? He must be slipping if that was the best he could come up with, even at short notice. Better to steer conversation to safer topics for now.

''There is something you should know before you engage, Captain.'' He went straight to the point, as asking about Tsuyosa-sama's intentions would be insulting to them both. ''This is a hostage situation. There are civilians inside the school and unseated Shinigami detained outside,'' large ears twitched as they relayed further details. ''There is at least one intruder at large, a female. Already there have been heavy casualties. We must assume the ryoka both armed and dangerous. I have already contacted my Captain and my own Retrieval team is on the way, but they will likely need time to arrive. With your permission, I will dispatch a kido broadcast warning civilians to seek shelter and for any officers 5th seat or higher nearby to reinforce us. Then l will attempt hostage evacuation; first our unseated officers and then civilians. My shikai can do that but it is not...gentle as you know. Better to demonstrate by saving trained shinigami first, who are less likely to hurt themselves struggling,'' his eye turned in the direction of the Captain's zanpakuto. ''Without distractions Tsuyosa-sama can engage the ryoka without worrying about holding back. I'll join you once hostages are safe,''

It was, most definitely the longest speech he had ever given in his life. If things were less serious, he would have noted ironically that if that didnt distract the Captain from his appearance, nothing would.

Scarcely waiting for a response, he dropped back to put intentions to action, grimacing as he reached for the pot of pigment on his person and moved to trace out the required runes on his arms. He hated doing this kido, the ink trails always left him looking like some kind of tasmanian tiger and were nearly impossible to scrub off later.

''Black and white net. Twenty-two bridges, sixty-six crowns and belts. Footprints, distant thunder, sharp peak, engulfing land, hidden in the night, sea of clouds, blue line. Form a circle and fly though the heavens. Bakudo 77; Tenteikūra.''

Voice amplified by the bakudo spell, Shiroki projected it towards all recipients in range. ''Attention Gotei members, Academy staff and students. This is Lieutenant Sakanade of the 2nd with an urgent message,'' the use of his formal name was odd but not something he could care about now. ''Students and anyone below Seat 5, please remain where you are and do not engage. Repeat, do not engage. Relief teams will be here shortly. Unseated officers Judai and...,'' his ears flattened, picking out another presence, ''...Boratomo, remain where you are for extraction. Please stay calm and try to go limp, you will likely see something and feel a sharp sting but it isnt going to harm you,''

Warning issued, the child dropped back to a safe distance and drew his battered baton, clacking it once against its sheath.

''Fetch, Inukaze,''

Matching T blades materialized in each hand, and he sent one of them whipping outwards in the direction he knew the hostages were last known to be. There hadnt been time to explain how his shikai worked in his kido message, he could only hope those officers would do as he said and remain still instead of panicking and getting the wrong idea when they saw his blade hurtling for their heads. It would be one hell of a mess if they thought he was trying to kill them and hurt themselves trying to escape. If they would only do their research, they would know Inukaze's ability was retrieving anything it cut to its owners location.

Why DID people always get the wrong idea anyway? He didnt have a habit of killing people. Well. Not recently at least. And not unless they really deserved it. Also, lets be frank: most of those people were hollows anyway and no one cares about those...present company Tsuyosa sama excluded.

It was out of his paws in any case. All he could do was hope those shinigami listened to his warning and didnt get themselves killed. All he needed to do was give Judai and Itsuya a shallow graze and he would be able to recall them both into safety and allow Captain Tsuyosa to really cut loose without worrying about holding back.

Sure. That was the theory anyway. And any number of things might cause it to go wrong. He hated working with unknown variables.

Too late for 2nd thoughts though, lnukaze was already on its way, snaking out towards Officer Judai who was in the most peril at the moment. He made a note to try and use Fetch on Judai's Asauchi too later if there was time. Ryoka shouldnt be playing with bladed weapons. That was just a recipe for disaster.

Sabiruchi nodded. Without slowing down, she called to the Werewolf, "I hope Lanying or Taiyo get here soon... Just stay behind me and get everyone out of my way, I'll handle this!"

With only a few meters before she was in front of the Academy, Sabre froze. That power! What in the Soul Queen's name was that? With only that momentary pause, Sabre jumped down into the street, calling out "Bankai, Seikatsu kikai no jōshō!"

There was an explosive pillar of light that reached up through the clouds, a blinding white. Out of the pillar, in the street, a huge metal sword cut through, dissipating the pillar. Sabiruchi stood in her Knight Form. A white leotard covered her lithe body, with thigh length white boots and elbow gloves. Floating around her body were huge pieces of armor, blue and black in coloration. A thick helmet rested over her head, spiky wings from her back, blocky paulderons at her shoulders and three long spines at each hip like a skirt. In her hands was a long sword as long as her body, with a silvery-blue blade. All in all, it looked very technological, but had a sense of mysticism to it all.

Even as she came to her feet, her Sabi āto: Saibanetikusu was at work, fusing her to the street they stood upon. Her body started to meld and sink into the pavement. She only needed twenty seconds before she'd be completely fused into the street, able to emerge herself from anywhere.

Itsuya saw the blade incoming at her, her eyes darkened into a deep panicked, hateful look. She whirled her dagger-like Zanpakuto out of her hilt, in one fluid motion, pushing against the blade in a panic. She stared darkly at Shiroki, seeing this as he had attacked her, with the intent to kill... She always was bad with her judgement about Werewolves and their motives...but that's just the way she is. She extended her wings, taking a still panicked flutter back. Her body shook.

"Release your holy light, Shitsumi!"

In an attempt to appear intimidating, and to actually save her life. Atleast she thought so... Released her Zanpakuto.

She stared at him with cold eyes. "You're attacking ME now, Lieutenant?!" She held her zanpakuto up, blade down as his blade had grazed off it.
