Two months ago, the moon turned red.

'Blood Moon' it was called, a rare and magnificent sight, but nothing to be worried about. After all, it was just another part of the lunar cycle, albeit one most people hadn't seen before, but still just another part of nature. Only a few people questioned why it had happened outside of its usual cycle, the rest paid it little mind.

Not until they realized it wasn't leaving, at least.

When the Blood Moon rose, the sun stopped coming up. Rather, the sun seemed to have disappeared entirely from the Earth's view, and the Blood Moon never moved. It just hovered up there in the sky, large and ominous, bathing the planet with a tinge of red light that somehow provided the illumination they needed to get by. First people wrote it off, then a few days after, they started getting concerned, then worried, they threw questions at their governments in hopes of answers that they didn't receive.

About a week in, people started to panic. Frantically running through the streets, fighting, looting, with no idea what was happening or what it meant. However, it wasn't just the moon that brought on this panic. From the second day of the Blood Moon onwards, communications ceased. Phone lines went down, the internet was disabled, televisions stopped broadcasting and even radio signals ceased to work. Technology as a whole, with few exceptions, simply... Stopped.

You live in the city of Randal, California. When the panic and riots started, your city's government and police force stepped in sharply to restore order. Due to their timely, organized and most of all dedicated intervention the panic was mostly quelled in Randal, albeit not without a lot of property damage and a good number of casualties. At the very least, it is mostly safe to walk the streets, at least in comparison with other places.

However, you have no idea how bad things are elsewhere. With no communications, the only way to know what was happening was to leave the city yourself,

or for the people who headed out themselves to return with news. Unfortunately, nobody who set out has returned.

Chaos is far from gone even in Randal. While open crime is still punished by regular police patrols and the general militia, many still believe that they can do whatever they want, and thus gangs are a common sight, as is civilians walking around armed. While walking the streets here may be safer than elsewhere, it is still a dangerous time for the normal people of the world.

Although... You're not so normal. In fact, you aren't even Human like the rest of them. You are one of the creatures of legend, living amidst mankind in this modern day and age, going unnoticed in the masses. 'Normal' threats don't tend to be any trouble to you, even when you have to pretend they are half the time if only to maintain your cover. You've stayed in Randal for the last two months for your own reasons, whatever they may be, but you have no answers for the Humans even if they knew to ask you for them.

This Blood Moon... It is unlike anything you know of, a complete mystery even to a creature of magic and myth. But something is going on out there, something big, and you think it might be time you headed out and discovered the truth. If the Humans can't handle what's out there, what better candidates were there than a bunch of Monsters?

-MY CHARACTER-

Name: Taylor "Ty" Na(k)amura.
Age: 22.
Gender: Female.
Race: Oni. (Metal)

Race description: A staple of Japanese mythology, the Oni are basically known as many kinds of asian Demon. There are all kinds of stories about them, many contradicting the others, and the truth has a bit of many of those stories.

There are five kinds of Oni. Fire, Stone, Water, Wood and Metal. Each kind has their own strengths and weaknesses, while they all share some capabilities and characteristics. They all possess great strength and durability, heightened speed and reflexes, impressive regeneration from injuries, are larger than Humans (in their true form, although their Human forms tend to be quite tall) and they are all capable of boosting their regeneration further by drinking large amounts of alcohol. Naturally, they will also never age beyond a point, allowing them to live for thousands of years if they are not killed by unnatural means.

Specific strengths and weaknesses of the five kinds of Oni I will not go into, only those of Taylor's kind: Metal. No kind of Oni is rarer than the others, although as a race they are quite rare anyway, but Metal is a bit different from the others. Where a Stone Oni possesses strength and durability far exceeding any of the other kinds of Oni, or a Fire Oni possesses speed and the ability to conjure fire, a Metal Oni is naturally attuned to magic. It comes far easier to them than the others, to put it simply, along with the amusing technique of creating a cloud that they can ride on.

However, they also have a distinct weakness. Metal Oni can be harmed grievously by fire. not heat, but actual ***** flames against their flesh. It would take them a long time to regenerate from wounds inflicted by fire.

Appearance: If there was anything to call Taylor, it would be 'weird'. Not because of her clothes, her face or really much of anything about her except for a few choice things. Namely, her height, physique and race.

If her surname wasn't a giveaway Taylor is half Japanese on her father's side, giving her a distinctly oriental look. These asian features are not weird on their own of course, but take into consideration her height of 6'4" and her muscular physique, then reconsider. Her skin is lightly tanned from the hot Californian sun, but still as silky smooth as you'd expect.

Taylor's bust is a C-cup, her rear is firm and petite. While muscular she is somewhat slender as well, having a rather impressive body shape. (I am rusty at writing appearances) Her eyes are a dusty grey colour, and finally her hair is cut short, not even touching the back of her neck. It is naturally straight, but she likes to mess it up in the morning to give it a bit more 'oomph', as she puts it. It's jet black, and she has a slight fringe that sweeps to the right.

Clothing: Taylor is a big fan of tank tops due to their ability to show off her impressive arms, along with pairs of cargo pants for their comfort and general ability to not be too tight. She dislikes jackets, figuring her top is more than enough, and on her feet she throws on a thick pair of black boots that look ready to stomp some skulls. She likes to keep her clothes simple, if you haven't figured. That and it was rather irritating weaving magic into them to improve their durability.

History: To be wrote.
