Ty Kurosawa was having a bad day.

First the plumbing in her apartment broke down, leaving her unable to shower that morning. Next, somebody (probably a drunk driver) had hit her car in the night and torn off the driver's side mirror, not to mention the viciously scratched paint job. Then at work, in her frustrated state, several customers complained about her 'unfriendly demeanor' based on the fact she wasn't smiling when serving them. Oh, forget her politeness and professionalism, we spoilt rich folk want smiles when we get our super salads, caviar and shark burgers!

Naturally, her boss gave her a chewing out for it, then ANOTHER chewing out when another customer decided he didn't like the vintage of wine he'd ordered and threw it in her face. Because it was the server's fault the guy didn't pick the right wine, naturally. Perhaps punching the guy hadn't been so professional, but damn if he didn't deserve it, and GOD DAMN did it feel good! The high of breaking someone's nose wore off quickly when she got fired.

"Look on the bright side, at least he didn't press any charges!" Rose, one of the other servers, tried to cheer her up as the two of them headed home. The notion didn't really help Ty's foul mood which Rose quickly picked up on, changing the topic conspicuously fast. "W-well, listen, maybe this is a good thing. I mean, you always hated working at the restaurant, didn't you? This is your chance to find what you want to do in life!"

Standing nearly a foot shorter than the other girl, Ty looked up at her with a scowl.

"What, I should use my wide array of skills to grab life by the horns and pull it in the direction I want? Oh wait, I haven't got any skills! Only reason I landed that job in the first place was because my Mom was an old friend of the owner's, not because of any... Any super asian politeness or whatever!" Rose couldn't stop a little giggle from escaping, deepenign Ty's scowl.

After trying (and failing) to disguise her giggles as coughing Rose cleared her throat, speaking up again.

"Okay listen, we're gonna go home, get changed and then go out for some drinks! You need some booze real bad, and I'll need some too if I keep listening to you." She giggled again, the only reason she wasn't getting a punch in the arm being that the idea of alcohol had somewhat calmed the raging beast that was the short asian girl.

The mid-winter sky had grown dark quickly, making it more dangerous for the two women as they passed through some of the seedier streets in the area. Unfortunately, both of them lived in a bad neighbourhood, giving them little choice in the matter of where to go. The street itself was far from empty, but the alleyways were not illuminated beyond the faint glow of nearly broken street lights, and it was when the two passed by one such alleyway that danger struck.

Ty whipped her head around at the sound of Rose's startled cry, just in time to spot a figure pulling her into the darkness. Not thinking twice about it the girl darted in after her, catching Rose's assailant briefly off-guard as her fist collided with his cheek painfully. The shock made him let her go, and Rose hurriedly tried to move away, only for a second figure to grab her around the waist and pull her back. As Ty moved to try and help her again the first man swung around, and suddenly Ty saw stars as something hit her in the head.

Dazed, she managed to lift her head and look around. The two... No, three men were not far away. One had his hand over Rose's mouth and an arm around her waist while the second closed in on her from the front, the very first man who Ty had punched was standing over her, something that looked like a wrench in his hand. Apparently thinking her pacified he turned away, but Ty did not give up easily, and despite her head pounding like a jackhammer she staggered to her feet and charged towards her friend.

Having expected her to stay down all three of the men were caught off-guard when she tackled the legs of the one advancing on Rose, knocking him off his feet, with just enough time left for her to scramble to the one restraining her and grabbed his arm, sinking her nails into it as she tried to yank it away. Using this distraction to her advantage, Rose bit down on her attacker's hand, making him cry out and let her go.

With that done Ty got ready to run for it, seeing Rose already charging into the light of the street, when her head exploded with pain. She ground rose up to meet her, white tinging the edges of her vision. All she wanted to do was lay there, rest, but something told her now was not the time. She tried moving her body and, just barely, succeeded in turning over onto her back, looking up at the dark sky. Something felt hot on the back of her head, and kind of wet... Was... She bleeding?

She blacked out right as she saw the glint of metal flying down at her face.

...

...

...?

...What...?

Ty... Sat up, clutching her head. There was no pain.

"Where the...!" She began to speak only to stop, rolling her tongue around her mouth uncomfortably. She sounded kind of rough, a bit deeper than she remembered, but maybe that was because she'd been hit on the head. She looked around, confusion quickly setting in as she found herself in an unfamiliar alley, a dumpster uncomfortably closeby. Standing with little effort Ty almost lost balance, for some reason feeling like things around her had gotten smaller.

She looked down at her clothes and her eyes widened. These were not her clothes! These were... Who did these belong to?! No, no, wait... Wait... What the hell? Her chest was definitely not that big, and, oh jesus, what the hell happened to her arms? They... She was RIPPED! Where the hell had these muscles come from?!

Panicked Ty hurried out from behind the dumpster, looking up and down the alley before stopping sharply, eyes growing wide again.

It was some distance away, maybe ten metres, but somehow her eyes could see it clear as day. The shadows of the alley were nothing, and the features on the form lying prone down the alley were too familiar.

She was lying there. She was lying there with blood on her face.

But... But she was here! How? Who? What was...?

Ty registered the fact that she was not alone in the alley. Not alone with herself, at least. Closer to the mouth of the alley there stood another familiar face, this one very much alive, who was staring down at the body with tearful eyes. Rose. The men from before were nowhere in sight, and a phone lay on the ground by the woman's feet, the screen still alight with a phone call that kept going. Even from here Ty could make out an operator asking if she was still there.

What she couldn't register was what the hell was happening. So, Ty did the only thing she could think to do.

She ran.

#SUMMARY#

IT'S HAPPENING AGAIN GUYS

ABO IS BACK IN BUSINESS FOR THE 9001st TIME

For the uninitiated, ABO stands for Anything But Ordinary, and it is probably the best known series I've created on this forum. Why? Because as the title suggests, I make it so many times you have no choice but to know what the hell it is!

Anyway, here is the premise. You live in New York City, the year is 2017, it's mid-winter and, unfortunately, you just died. How did you die? That is up to you, but regardless of how it happened, it is not going to stay permanent. Within moments, perhaps minutes after you die you find yourself awake again, but not where you were a before. You have revived close to where you died, but you are no longer yourself. In fact, you're not even human anymore.

You don't know why or how, but you have been given a new body that seemingly came from nowhere. For convenience you will have clothes on. Your new body doesn't look like your old one, nobody would be convinced if you claimed to be them, so it appears you have been given a whole new identity, one that is in nobody's databanks.

And like I said, you are no longer human. Whatever your race is now, what you do next is your own choice. Build a new life? Become a vigilante? A criminal? Something more? Whatever you do is your own decision, however... Something happened to you. Something brought you back, and maybe finding out why would be a good idea.

Regardless of what you decide, one thing is for sure.

Your life is anything but ordinary now.

Name: Taylor "Ty" Kurosawa.
Age: 24.
Gender: Female.

Race: Oni. (Metal)

Race Description: One of the more well-known creatures in Japanese mythology. Oni are, at their most basic, Japanese ogres. However, this is by far an oversimplification. Oni are an interesting bunch indeed.

Outside of Japan Oni are ridiculously rare to the point where there may exist only a handful in North, South and Central America combined. In Japan there are far more, but they remain one of the rarer species out there. Oni are split into five sub-species, each possessing their own strengths and weaknesses while all sharing a few similar traits as well. They are Fire, Stone, Water, Wood and Metal. I won't describe them all (unless somebody else wants to play one) and instead will stick only with Taylor's sub-species: Metal Oni, also known as Void Oni.

The shared characteristics of all Oni include a love of fighting, a love of drinking, a 'true' form, enhanced physical abilities (primarily strength and durability) and a unique thing known as the Bond that will not be described here. Metal Oni, in human form, are around peak human strength and have tough skin, letting them take hits that would cripple a normal person. In Oni form, they have enough strength to lift and throw a car, and their skin is even tougher. They also possess an enhanced healing factor, and regenerate from their wounds at a faster rate to humans. However, if they drink alcohol their wounds heal at an even faster rate, and the purer the alcohol the faster.

Metal Oni have a strength and a weakness, like all other Oni. Their strength is an instinctive ability to use magic, letting them quickly learn and master spells. This instinctive power allows them to see into the void as well, meaning they can see through magical illusions and identify particular kind sof magic more easily than others. On the other hand, they have a severe weakness to fire. If flames touch their bare skin, they will hurt bad, and the wound will heal

very slowly.

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 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.

Her Oni form will be described in-character, when appropriate.

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.
